OFFICER ATTACKED .1 Drunken Soldiers' Anger PARIS, Thursday. The Straflibuarg correspondent of the "Matin" telegraphs details of an extraordi- nary affair at at inn at Kaltentraueen. It seems that about 90 German soldiers had been drinking heavily at the inn, when a quarrel broke out. An officer arriving on the scene endea- voured to restore order, bat the men on hie appearance forgot their dispute, and made a. rush for the officer, with such effect that he had to be removed to the bospitaa suffering from several injuries, and be is in & very serious condition. Nearly all the men oonoeraed have been arrest,ed.Central News.

The Mas in the Street. ii —— » I Much plp-asure will be excited I by the rumour that his Majesty i intends fallowing the wise example i of his august father. who made it a point tù visit several towns and cities in his dominions every year. We may look forward to a visit to WMes in the not remote future. Ireland, too, is to have her turn, and t,here are those who say the enthusiasm of the coming recep- tion will exceed that of any previous one, hearty though these have been. It is on record that the Fourth George had a great time in Dublin. His Majesty, according to the rollicking fashion of his period, was half^seas over I diii-ing his VIsit, Whether this touched the humour of the Celt or not I can't say, but certain it is that the Irish took I the much-maligned monarch to their bosom, and I have heard it aid that there were loyal 60ns of Erin who never after- wards washed the hand that bad been honoured by the Royal clasp! T-1-ilernei are people still living who were born in those festive days yet what a gulf sepa- rates them from us! What Lancashire thinks to-day Eng- land will think to-morrow. So say the Lancashire folk themselves, and they ought to know. Bearing this dictum in I mind, it is interesting to note that notices posted on the shores of a Lancashire lake, where boating is the attraction, give this impressive warning in ibig I t.vpe: Collisions between the boats are da-ngerousHere we have a splendid instance of that rare faculty of getting straight at the heart of things that we have long ago learnt to associate with our canny friends in the North. It would never have struck us, ordinary beings as we are, that collisions were dangerous and that it was necessary to I go to the trouble of posting up notices to that effect. But as Lancashire leads the way we must all hurry up now and follow suit. We hope soon to hear of the promulgation of other important theses, such as that ice is cold and slippery, that walking in the rain has a tendency to make one damp, and that it is, on the whole, inadvisable to thrust one's fist into the fire, because, &c., &c. As the presence of a magnet exerts a stimulative influence on iron filings so the presence of Evan Roberts once more in Wales seems as though it would re- kindle the former fires of the Revival. I fancy, however, the old fervour will never be revived exoept, maybe, in a very modi- fied form. Such movements are spon- taneous or they are nothing: they can- not be manufactured, they cannot be engineered. There is as much difference between a great upheaval like the Welsh Revival and those of Messrs. Moody, Alexander, and the rest as there is between chalk and cheese. The Welsh Revival was such a movement as only the Celtic races can produce. For instance, they have the same kind of movement from time to time in Ireland, where the religious conditions are altogether dif- ferent from those of Wales. To the psychologist and the philosopher these spontaneous awakenings are of profound interest. They come and they go as the wind blows upon the mountains; and the almost total absenoe of artificiality is one of the most beautiful and wonderful things about them. Apologies for the victim of inebriety are not often met with in intellectual circles, but I have just bad my attention called to two, and I think many readers will be interested in them. The first is Professor William James, of Harvard, author of that illuminating book, "The Varieties of Religious Experience." This great thinker says, "Drunkenness expands, unites, and says Yes. It brings its votary from the chill periphery of things to the radiant core. It makes him for the moment one with truth. Not through mere perversity do men run after it. To the poor and the unlettered it stands in the place of symphony con- certs and literature." A smaller but still eminent man, the Rev. R. J. Camp- bell, says, "The man who got drunk last night did so because of the inspiration in him to break through the barriers of his limitations." The above is the truth, let the teetotal critic say what he likes, and the obvious inference is that in merely repressing drink and the drunkard we are only doing part of what we ought to do, and by no means the most vital part. In the heart of even the most depraved man is a spark of the Divine. Even in the breast of a Nero it was not utterly extinct. But the drunkard is not neces- sarily that. He is far more often to be I pitied than condemned. Often his drun- kenness in his only vice. What are we to do with him To punieh him is not enough. Let us try and get at him from within let us try and improve his envi- ronment. By and bye, by slow degrees he will rise. Already a substantial social improvement is manifest. We are as a people better in a thousand ways than we were a hundred, or even fifty, years ago. We are not always appre- ciative of the progress; but it is t here, all the same.

WELSHMAN'S MUSICAL WAR I Feelings of disappointment were the chief 'I characteristic of yesterday's happenings in Argyle-road, West Ealing, where Mr. Jenkins, the Welshman, who lives at No. 14, has been attracting the attention of the neighbour- hood by the persistency with which he has been playing his motor-driven piano-player. Crowds gathered in Argyle-road at an early hour, but the piano was silent. About eleven o'clock the instrument played "WhisPer and I Shall Hear" once, and then silence again prevailed. It was noticed that vendors of odd wares and gatherers of discarded house refuse passed up and down the road with quite unusual frequency, their disoordaait cries uniting at times in a cacophonous din. At three o'clock Mr. Jenkins again played Whisper and I Shall Hear with deep feel- ing. This ended the day's proceedings.

Shower of Gold I — « OLD LADY'S STRANGE WEAKNESS The strange conduct of an old woman caused some exoitement in Dublin last night. Walking into a shop in Capel-street, she sai down and opened an umbrella. She then opened a bag she was carrying and took from it handfuls of gold, which she scattered all around her. By the time the police arrived on the scene no fewer than 44 sovereigns had been thrown down. Two constables quickly collected the money and removed the woman to a looal police- station for inquiries. It was ffraud subse- quently that she was a widow residing in Kingstown, and that there was nothing amiss with her beyond an extraordinary desire to get rid of her gold, of which she appeared to have an unlimited supply. She wa.s allowed to go home in charge of a relative.
===== ROSE TO THE OCCASION ( An old lawyer in Paris had instructed a An old la.wyer in Paris had instructed a very young client of his to weep every time he struck t.he desk with his band. Unfor- tuna.tely, the barrister forg-ot himself, and struck the desk at the wrong moment; the client fell to sobbing and crying. "What is the matter with you?" asked the presiding judge. "Well, he told me to cry as often as he struck the table." Here was a nice predicament; but the astute lawyer was equil to the occasion. Addressing the jury, he said: "Well, gentlemen, let me ask you how you can reconcile the idea of crime in con- junction with such candour and simplicity? I await your verdict with the most perfect confidence."
—————— I DUMB MAN S PROTEST I At the Theatre Ryal, Dublin, yesterday d'uring a performance of "Tii),o Dollar Prin- C" 'a young man seated in the circle behind a woman wearing an enormous hat attracted some attention immediately after the curta-in rose by vigorously gesticulacting with his haTI(b.' Finding that his dumb moti-ons were of no avail, the man took a card from his pocket-book. After hastily [ scribbling on it he handed it tc the young woman, who read the words, "I cannot speak | a word-please remove your hat." The young woman immsdiaceiy removed her hat.

HUGE AEROPLANE PRIZES The Paris" Journal" announces that Mr. Latham and Mr. Loraine will compete in the international circuit next summer, for which I it is offering prizes to the value of £ 8,000. The Echo de Paris says that an analysis made in Paris gives colour to the sup- position that the erosions in the motors of aeroplanes at Amiens were due to decom- position of the oil, canned by the high temperature. The Matin," however, is still of the opinion that the acid was mixed with lubricating oil.

Joint Water Supply I TWO INTERESTING CEREMONIES The completion of the Pencoed and Coy- church Higher water scheme was marked on Wednesday, when the opening of the waterworks took place in fine weather, crowds of inhabitants watching the inaugural ceremony. The sources of the water supply are situated at Cwm Rhyd-y-Milwyr and Maendy, Mynydd- y-Gaer, at an altitude of 700ft. above sea level, while Pencoed is from 80 to 200 feet and Heolycyw from 200 to 300 feet above sea level. The dry weather supply from the combined springs is 316,000 gallons per 24 hours. The scheme comprises about three miles of gathering drains from the springs into the two settling tanks. At Rhiw-ceiliog a circular concrete reservoir has been built, with a capacity of 44,000 gallons, from which the distributing mains for Pencoed parish are supplied. A similar reservoir is situated on Brynoebhin dl, from which the distributing mains for Coyohurcl1 Higher are served. Estimated to cost £ 6,500, the work has been completed without that figure being exceeded, and the contractors, Messrs. W. and J. E. Watson (Limited), Edinburgh, although the contract allowed twelve months for com- pletion, finished t,he work in six months. The members of the joint parochial com- mittee. with representatives of the Penybont Rural District Council, ratepayers, and wives were driven in traps from Pencoed Railway Station to Heolycyw (No. 2) Reservoir, where the opening ceremony was performed by Mr. Griffith Edwards, who turned on the tap. After the ceremony Mrs. R. Horrocks, on behalf of the contractors, presented Mr. Griffith Edwards with a silver-mounted walk- ing-stick, suitably inscribed, as U memento of the occasion. At Pencoed Mr. Willie A. Howell (vioe-ohair- man of the parochial committee) performed the ceremony. Mrs. Horrocks also presented Mr. Howell with a silver-mounted walking- stick. Benefit of Amalgamation I A public luncheon given by the contractors I was provided at the Town-hall, Pencoed, after the ceremony, Mr. Griffith Edwards presiding over a large gathering. He was supported by the Rev. H. Eynon Lewis, Mr. Thos. Da vies (Aberkenfig), Mr. Howell Wil- liams (chairman Penybont Rural Council-). Mr. J. T. Salathiel, Mr. R. Horrocks (manager for the contractors), Mr. John Rees, Mr. H. V. Thornlcy, Mr. Hopkins, Mr. Williams, Mr. Eiryn W. DaTies (engineer), Mr. Bevan (clerk of the works), and Mr. W. H. Mainwaring (clerk to the joint parochial committee). The loyal toasts were submitted by the chairman. Mr. Thos. Davies (Aberkenfig) proposed the toast of The Chairman and Members of the Va terworks Committee," and advised the joint parochial committee not to think they had done the work all on their own. The Penybont Council had had a word to say in the matter. Mr. Griffith Edwards, responding, paid a tribute to the enthusiastic labours of the I members of the joint parochial committee and to the contractors. Mr. W. A. Hpwell said they had not always been on such good terms with the district council as they were that day, but they were willing to bury the hatchet. It appeared at one time that the two parishes, Pencoed and Coychuroh Higher, would have had separate schemes of their own, but by amalgamating the cost had been lessened. If that could be done by joint action, he did not see why other schemes could not be similarly carried out. Other toasts followed.
REMARKABLE YARN I Three men, named Barmore, Gray, amd I Bright, were charged at Highgate on Wednes- day with being suspected persons, loitering at Churchfleld-avenue, Finchley. ¡ According to two labourers, named Robin- son and Chaney, Bright and Gray planted something in the ground and walked away. Robinson and Chaney went to see what they had planted, and found a jemmy, wrapped in a stocking. Robinson pioked it up, and took it to where he was working. In a few minutes Barmore. who was wear- ing a silk hat, oame behin dthe hoarding, and apparently was looking for th e jemmy. Robinson and Chaney then communicated with the police, aaid the men were arrested. Barmore said he left hois home at King's Cross to go to Barnet. He met Gray and Bright at Finchley, and got into a heated argument with Gray about. Shakspears, of whom I have been a student. We were dis- cussing Shakspears when we came to the hoarding referred to. Gray went behind, and when he fet-urned to the road a,ga,im he said he had seen a big lizard. I went behind, and could not see the lizard, but I found a huge frog. I called Bright and Gray to look. I know nothing of the jemmy." The men were sentenced to three months' imprisonment each.
CREDULOUS GIRL I Mr. Plowden, at West London on Wednes- day, sent for trial Harry Handing, aged 39, an insurance agent, livin.g at 49, F&irlight- road, Lower Tooting, charged on remand with intermarrying with Atary Ann Tilley, a domestic servant, on November 8, 1906, at the Fulham Registry Office, his wife, Emma Young, being then and now alive. Tilley stated that she had known the defen- dant for six years. She knew him at that time as Bert Young. He told her he was "not legally married." The Clerk: You took no trouble to find out about his history?-No, sir. I believed what he told me. Mr. Plowden: Let it be a little lesson to you in future, if yon have any similar oppor- tunities in life. Take the trouble to find out the truth of what a young man or an old man may tell you. In answer to the magistrate, the defendant said he had no questions to ask the witness, but he should like the first wife called as a. witness. Mr. Plowden: She can't be. The accused reserved his defence.
WAR ON MUSIC-HALLS I The hopes that were entertained for the settlement of the threatened music-hall sketch war hav^vanished, and there is every prospect now of the law being get in motion against several important halls, and of some hundreds of arti&tes being deprived of engagements. In conversation with a press representative on Wednesday afternoon Mr. Fred Baugh, the manager of "Ye Olde Sa?I?r's Wells Theatre," who i. proceeded against last week on the information of a common informer, stated that he intended to apply without further delay for summonses against about eleven music-halls at which sketches are being pro- duced. I am sorry," he sadd, "for the artistes who will be thrown out of work in conse- quence of this course of action.

Sir Arthur boldly labels his play A Drama of the Prize Rine." It is laid out in four aots, and each act—which is placed in london-will be divided into two or three scenes of a very elabora-te and atmospheric character. The play gives us a picture of the life of the Regency, showing us the "bloods" of the period at their field of sport, and gives promise of a piece full of movement.

I AFTER KISSING I WIFE NEARLY MURDERED I Toothache Tragedy I 1 LLANELLY MAN'S SUICIDE I A domestic tragedy occurred at Llanelly on Wednesday afternoon, a young man attempting to murder his wife and then inflicting fatal injuries on himself. The parties concerned are Sidney Richards, a young copper worker (24), who lived in MRS. GERTIE RICHARDS. -1 apartments at 8, Talbot-street. and his wife Gertie Richards (21). They have been mar- ried about four years and have one son. On Wednesday morning Richards com- plained of toothache, and obtained a loan of lialf-a-crown from his mother-in-law for the purpose of having two teeth extracted. He returned later in the day and said he had lost the money. He was charged with having spent the money on drink, but denied this, and said that he had only had two "sleevers." He then went upstairs to bed. A few minutes later Mrs. Richards went to the bedroom to see how her husband was getting on, when a terrible struggle com- menced. Richards, who during the day had been on the most affectionate terms with his wife, now confronted her with a razor, and the poor woman, terror stricken, shouted SIDNEY RICHARDS. for assistance. Mrs. Davies, the landlady. rushed upstairs, where shosaw Mrs. Richards endeavouring to protect herself against her husband, who was armed with a. razor. He held her by the hair of her head and bran- dished the razor about. Mrs. Davies dragged the woman away. but, before she could get her ont of the room. Richards slashed the razor across his wife's throat, causing a terrible gash. She was taken downstairs, the husband returning to the bedroom. Suicide of Assailant I In a few minutes he came downstairs covered with blood. He entered the parlour, where he sank down and died almost immedi- ately. The police were quickly on the spot, fol- lowed by Dr. Vincent (assistant to Dr. H. H. Roberts). The husband, of course, was past all medical aid, and the doctor devoted his attention to the wife, who had beoome un- conscious and had to be removed to the hospital. The deceased was a native of Lla.nelly, and was well known in the town. Before his marriage lie ílived in Swansea-road. He showed signs of mental weakness some time ago, and had been an inmate of the Car- marthen Asylum. He was discharged from the asylum cured, but it is said tha.t recently ho had. been very strange in his manner. Yesterday, however, he was on particularly good terms with his wife. During the morn- ing he kissed her repeatedly in the presence of the landlady, Mrs. Richards jokingly saying. "Don't, Sid, you will make MTS. Davies jealous." MOST ENDEARING" I I Landlady Tells Her 6tory I Speaking to our reporter, Mrs. Da-viessadd:- "Sidney Richards and his wife took apart- ments with me about four months ago. I notjoed this morning that he was most endearing to his wife. They seemed to be on the happiest terms, and you oould never wish to see a more affectionate couple. I was told, however, that he had been to the asylum, his wife saying that he was taken there because while on board a ship he attempted to do something similar to what he has done to-day. I did not notice any- thing in him out of the way, but his temper was rather hasty." "This morning he had a letter from his mother-in-law, and he told us he was going to the dentist to have two painful teeth extracted. When he came back he said that he had lost the money, and then he went off to bed. Mrs. Richards went upstairs afterwards, and when I was going on with my washing in the back kitchen I heard a terrible scream, 'Mrs. Richards crying out 'Mrs. Davies, he is murdering me. Come and help me.' I rushed upstairs and saw him holding his wife 'by the hair. He held a razor in the other hand, a.nd slashed it across her throat. I nearly fainted when I saw blood flowing, but I got the poor soul out of the room and took her downstairs. I went to the front door and screamed for help. Mre. Richards eat on tIre front doorstep with blood streaming from her neok. Her hus- band then came downstairs in a terrible state. He had cut his own throat, and was just able to stagger into the parlour, where he sank down and died at once." Mrs. Davies added that the young oonple had been separated for twelve months, and ic was after they came together again that they took apartments with her. She had never seen a, razor in the houses before, as Phillips had invariably been shaved by a barber. She saw no signs of his having been indulging in drink. "And you are quite sure they had not been Quarrelling?"—As I have already told you, he was kissing her continually this morning, and telling her what a good pay she would have on Saturday. He had a vile temper, however, but he would be all right in a few minutes." Upset by Toothache I Twelve months ago it seems (as stated by the landlady) that Richards and his wife separated, the former going to sea on a Milford trawler. While thus employed he attempted to commit suicide by jumping overboard, but was rescued by the crew. The condition of his mind was such that the trawler put back to Milford, and Richards was removed to the Carmarthen Asylum. Discharged from the institution as cured six weeks ago, his wife received him again, and they went to live in the bOUEt in Talbot- street where the tragedy occuxrel. On Tuesday night the man returned from his work at the copper foundry suffering acutely from toothache. Although on the night shift, he did not go back. Spending a restless night, he asked his mother-in-law on Wednesday morning to lend him money to get the t-rouble6ome teeth extracted. He promised to bring them back for her to see, and she told him he should have dinner there. Richards did not return. The presumption is that he spent the half-crown in the purchase of a. razor, because he" was known not to have possessed one before. A neighbour who knew him intimately said she saw him late on Tuesday night, suffering great pain from his teeth, and she believes his miai must have been upset. He lived on the most amioable terzes with has wife, and alwa-jr. epolie of her iu twma of regpert.
Smokeless Battleships EXPERTS DIFFER AS TO POSSIBILITY Referring to the reported intention of the Admiralty to build a motor-driven battleship, the success of the new type would m-ean beyond all doubt the biggest revolution in naval oonstruction since the introduction of steam and armour-plating. We should ha.ve a hideous monster with little visible on her decks but grinning guns. There is naturally a good deal of scepticism as to our having yet reached the era of the motor battleship, but (says the London correspon- dent of the "Liverpool Post") it should not be overlooked that the Hamburg-Amerika Company have ordered an Atlantio liner of 9,000 tons to be driven by gas engines. Cardiff Criticism Among Cardiff marine engineers the report that the Admiralty were about to build a battleship to be driven by gas or oil engines was generally discounted. That such a, thing might be possible at some future date no one denied, but great advances have to be made in engineering science before it can happen. They thought it hardly likely tha.t the Government would experiment on so large a scale as to involve an outlay of a couple of million sterling on what might prove a failure. The use of suction gas engines was rapidly increasing, and. this was providing a new outlet for anthracite coal, but there are mechanical and other pro- blems to be overcome before gas engines dis- place steam for the propulsion of large vessels. Ships Controlled by Wireless I Discussing the possibilities of the future, a well-known engineer said it had been demonstrated that it was possible to work torpedoes, small vessels, and airshipt3 by electrical impulses from a distance. At the Cardiff Empire this week, he said, there was an interesting turn, in the form of an air- ship being controlled in such a, way. It was not impossible that such methods might be utilised to propel and control vessels at sea at some future time. There were. however, great and practical difficulties to be overcome before any of these schemes would displace the steam boiler and engine at sea, and there was a great field for the inventor.
LATE MISS A. F. SALUSBURY I Miss Ann Frances Salusbury, of Hope Lennox, Christchurch-road, Bournemouth, who died on the 23rd of November, left estate of the gross value of £18,262. of which £ 17,945 is net personalty, and probate of her will, dated July 29. 1909, has been granted to her brothers—the Rev.

Folliott Lynoh Salusbury, of the Rectory, Market Overton, Rutland. The testatrix left LI,000 each to the children of her brother, the Rev. Polliott Lynch Salusbury, LIAO to her niece, Miss Evelyn Salusbury, 11,000 to each of the other children of her brother, the Rev. Charles Thelwall Salusbury, El,000 to her nephew, Mr. John Thelwall Salusbury, and the residue of her estate to her nieoee- Beryl Mary Salusbury, Margaret Mary Salus- bury, Theodora Salusbury, Gladys Salusbury, and Muriel Gertrude Salusbury.
A CRITICAL TRAMP I A fitter on tramp, named Frederick Ham- mond, who was sentenced to fourteen days' hard labour at Brecon on Wednesday for refractory conduct at the workhouse, com- plained of the sanitary condition of the union and of the fact that he was put with fourteen other men into what he called a small room. He had only one blanket, which he alleged was verminous, and he had to sleep all night on the boards. For these reasons he refused to perform his allotted task. The Master agreed that the sanitary con- ditions were not model, but said they had to put up with what they had got. New accommodation would have been provided but for the fact that the Poor-law Commis- sioners recommended that the police should take over the control of vagrants.
SHIPBUILDING TRADE I As the result of a conference in Glasgow on Wednesday between representatives of the employers and men, nearly 3,000 boiler- makers employed on the Clyde are likely to secure an advance of wages. The men's Organisation is not concerned with the national shipyard agreement, and, conse- quently. made a separate applioation for an increase of id. per hour or 5 per cent. on piece rates. It was officially reported on Wednesday evening that after a lengthy dis- cussion both parties agreed to recommend that the advance should take place as from the middle of October.
TOURIST'S PLIGHT I SARNER, Wednesday. M. Allard, the septuagenarian Belgian tourist who has been missing sinoe Monday morning, when he went for a walk alone, was found badly injured and in a completely exhausted condition yesterday evening in the woods above the village of Melchtau. It appears that he slipped on the path and fell down a steep slope to the edge of the Melchtau torrent, where he lay for 36 hours, his cries for help being drowned by the sound of the rushing waters. Mr. Allard died W-day.-Iteuter.
SITES AT THE DOCKS I Sir William Thomas Lewis, acting on behalf of Lord Bute, has given two sites at a nominal rental at the Cardiff Docks, upon which waiting-rooms will be built, as part of the Labour Exchange scheme. These rooms will be used and found to be extremely con.! venient by the large* army of casual labourers at the Docks. The registratkn office in Bute-street has just been opened, and excellent work is being done at the head offipe in Bridge-street, under the supervision of Sir William Crossman.
ATTACK ON YORKSHIRE I Under the auspices of the National Union of Conservative and Oonstitutional Associa- tions and the Conservative Central Office, a.n extensive campaign has been arranged to take place throughout Yorkshire, commenc- ing on September 17 and continuing to the end of the year. The ohief subjects of the propaganda will be Tariff Reform, anti- Socialism, and the question of taxation.
SCHOOL OVERCROWDED I The Merthyr School Management Committee were informed by the Board of Education on Wednesday that the ventilation of Dowlais Roman Catholic Sohool must be improved without delay, and the average attendance reduced to the limits of the aooommodation, otherwise the ooneequences might be serious. A copy of the letter was ordered to be sent to the managers.

Long Silence Broken I ———— ———— MR EVAN ROBERTS SPEAKS AGAIN Mr. Evan Roberts. the Welsh Revivalist, who has been staying at Llandrindod Wells during the present month, attended special meetings at the Friends' Meeting House, Penybont, an historic thatched chapel on the hillside, yesterday. His presence was unexpected. The meetings were of an open character, and Mr. Roberts spoke in the after- noon and evening with great fervour and power. Now that Mr. Roberts has broken his long silence, all Wales will be anxious to know whether he will soon actively renew his ministry. Those present at yesterday's meetings say that Mr. Roberts spoke with much the same power as in the Revival. Revival Scenes at Porthcawl J Religious fervour has taken hold of Porth- cawl, and on Wednesday night scenes akin to the revival in which Mr. Evan Roberts was the central figure some years ago took place in a large marquee on the Esplanade, where the Rev. Seth Joshua has been con- ducting a long and successful evangelical mission. Immediately the meeting started a young man said he intended to give up a lucrative post as a brewer's agent and peek conversion. A man from Mountain Ash fol- lowed, and rebuked some persons in the con- gregation who were smiling. Several others gave their testimony, and a number of persons sang and prayed in different parts of the marquee at the same time.
SPIES OR TOURISTS? I BERLIN, Wednesday. Although the authorities have now allowed a good deal of information to be made known regarding the arrest of two English- men on a charge of being spies, the circum- stances of the affair are yet far from clear. Brandon was arrested in the first instance and then allowed to go free again, being regarded as a harmless tourist merely. He had not enjoyed his freedom for an hour, however, when he was again placed under arrest. Trench, who travelled from Borkum to Emden. and took a room at the Union Hotel there, aroused suspicion when be made inquiries for Brandon. He was carefully watched, and as his movements were I regarded as suspicious, he. too, was arrested. In Trench's luggage the police report that they found powerful telesoopes and field- glasses. In conformity with German procedure the two prisoners will be privately examined by an examining judge, who will decide whether they shall be committed to the Supreme Court at Liepzig for trial.—Central News.
NEW SEAMS OPENED The Samlet Colliery Company, Llansamlet, having taken over the old Caepridd Pit, are rapidly developing the property. In less than six months the old plaoe has been dismantled and three modern engines have been laid down, and all beams, pulleys, and sheaves fixed over two pits. On Wednesday afternoon the inaugural ceremony of getting the winding machinery in motion was performed by Mrs. Williams, The Park, Gowerton. The coal already worked by the previous proprietors was known as the Four-foot, but the area was so limited that it proved unre- munerative, with the result that the plaoe had to be abandoned. This was about 22 years ago. The new company are avoiding this at the outset, and have made agreements whereby not only the Four-foot, but the Six- foot and what is locally termed the "Hughes" Seam will be worked. The rights have been secured of the minerals for a radius of come six to seven miles square.
THE AMERICAN TARIFF I BEVEiRLY (MASS.), Wednesday. During the approaching Congressional cam- paign Mr. Taft will favour a further revision of the tariff. While still convinced that the Payne Aldrich Law is the best the country has ever had, he has oome to the conclusion that there is decided room for improvement. He does not propose thait business shall be upset by another wholesale revision, but will recommend to Congress that individual schedules of the tariff be taken up separately and disposed of on a scientific basis. The new revision will be based on the ftnd- ings of the Tariff Commission on the ooet of production at home and a.broad. Only.a. fair profit will be allowed to the American producer.-Reu,ter.
SNUG APPOINTMENTS I A White Paper issued on Wednesday night, giving a return asked for by Mr. M'Veagh, M.P., of the appointments in connection with the Courts of Justioe in Ireland, reveals the fact that five of the salaried officials have held office for upwards of half a centnry. Mr. Hugh Doyle, chief olerk in the Kind's Bench Bankruptcy Division, now 77 years of age, has been in the service for 60 years. Next to him stand Mr. H.

A street at Dalginross was submerged and houses were inundated, The lands alongside the Crieff and Comrie Rail- way for several miles were converted into a great lake. a number of wooden bridges on the River Turrent were washed away, and a big dam on the River Barviek was partly destroyed. Helensburgh also experienced a thunderstorm of un.usual severity.
MINISTERS' SALARIES I Upwards of 9143,000 has now been promised I towards the central fund of the Congrega- tional Union of England and Wales. The fund was initiated by the Rev. J. D. Clones, M.A., B.D.. of Bournemouth, during his presi- dency of the Union last Year, with the objeot of securing a. quarter of a million sterling to provide a permanent scheme for raising the income of every Congregational minister in I charge to a. minimum of £ 120 per year.
THE TERRA NOVA I PRETORIA, Wednesday. It is officially stated that the Union Govern- ment has contributed £ 500 to Captain Scott s expedition to the South Pole. The Mayor of Pre,toria has also opened a fund which Lord Gladstone, the Governor, has headed with a subscription of £ 50.— Reuter.
BACK FROM FAR NORTH BERUN, Wednesday. The steamer Mainz, with Prince Henry of Prussia, Count Zeppelin, and the other mem- bers of the expedition which proceeded in July last to the Far North to investigate the possibility of an airship expedition in the Polar regions, arrived at Brunsbuettel this morning, and passed Ithrough the canal for Kiel.-Router.

Curious Bigamy Charge 4w DEALER AND WAITRESS Before Mr. Maraham at Bow-street PoHoe- ccurt on Wednesday David Israel (37), a fruiterer, well-known in Covent Garden Market, and living in Stock well-road, Brixton. waa charged with feloniously inter-marrying Da.isy Nina Spenoer, his wife being then alive. Daisy Nina. Spencer, a good-looking young woman, living in a flat at Bedfordbury, said that on March 29 Lie, she went through the form of marriage with the aooused at the registry office for the district of Fulham. She had met him at an establishment where she was employed as a waitress. When she was married to him she bad no idea that he already had a wife. Five weeks ago she and her mother went to Oovent Garden Market to see him and get, some money from him. They then heard from his brothers that he was married to another woman. She had not lived with him since then. Jealous of Her Eliza Spenoer, the last witness's mooter, said before the ceremony her husband adfced Is real if he was a. married man. He laughed, and said, No, certainly not." After she heard, in Covent Garden Market. that he had been previously married, she told him she had reason to believe that he was a married man. He answered, Yes, it is quite right." She gave information to the polioe last Thursday. Mr. Marsham: Did the prisoner and your daughter live happily together?—The Wit- ness: No; very far from it. He was awfully jealous of her. He did not like anyone to look at her, and if she went out there were terrible scenes. He did not ill-treat her?—Yes, he used to pinch and push her. Badly?—Yes, he bruised her. On how many occasions?—Nearly every day. He did not hurt her to any ertentP-Not for anyone to see the marks. Had Heaps of Money In answer to further questions the witness said the accused said he was master of the business he was connected with in Covent Garden, his father having retired. He repre- sented that he had "heaps of money," but wanted his marriage kept secret for a. time, as his father was supposed to be dying. The witness said the "marriage" was arranged on two oocasio-ns before it actually took place. Mr. Myers: Was he trying to get out of it? —The Witness (excitedly): Gracious good- ness, no! He did not know how to get there quick enough. (Loud laughter.) Since the wedding he has stayed with my daughter a. week at a time, aind he said his father was likely to cut him off. Mr. Myers: Did he catch her in a cab?—J don't know where he caught her. The accused, who reserved his defenoe, was committed for trial, bail being allowed.
UNION FOR SEAMEN COP ENH A GEN, Wednesday. The International Congress of Carrying Trade Employes resumed its deliberations this morning. The proposal under consideration was that seamen should separate from the U-nion of Carrying Trade Employes and form an inter- national Union of their own, which should,, however, continually remain in close com- munication with the International Union of Carrying Trade Labourers. The proposal was supported by British, American, and Danish delegates, and opposed by Germans. The congress agreed temporarily to post- pone to a later date discussion of the pro- posal. Herr Mueller, of Berlin, then read a paper on the working of Labour Unions. He said that an international strike of seamen at the present moment would, be can absolutely insane proceeding, and would certainly end disastrously for seamen. Mr. Ben Tillet and Mr. Wilson, British delegates, protested against this view, and upheld the propoeal for a strike of British seamen.—Reuter.

Mr. Bint (a magistrate): Axe you married? Defendant: No. When I was here last I was staying with a Scotchwoman, and I used to say. I am going to see my wife." There is a saying in Scotland I am going to see my old woman. Then when I asked. Are you married?' I said Yes.' I never eoid it from ill-will." (LamgihterJ The case was dismissed.

CHILD INSURANCE A meeting of the Swansea Bootrd of Guardians Boarding-out Committee was held on Wednesday. The visitor reported that she found in several oases children had been insured by the foster parents, and that in oaee of their death these foster parents would receive 17 or 18. It was pointed out that this was contrary to aji order of the Local Government Board, and that in case of death the guardians would provide the burial expenses. It was, therefore, ordered that payment on account of such children should! be stopped unless the policies were sur- rendered.
