TALL RIGHTS RESERVED.} "A CONQUEST OF FORTMIf" BY GEORGE GRIFFITH. BEGIN THE STORY HERE. ] I CHAPTER L-Th storr ccens with th» romantic retarn to Dudley from Ame-tica after twelve years' absence of Mr. Bryan Endicot. who. as a bev, left school and I went awav after his father's tragic death. His father was an in n master supposed to be wealthy, but all young Endicot ^received from Lucas Starkey, a. lawyer, was £100. and he came home to find the latter, U1 possession of the works During nis stay in America Endicot gained wealth and fame as Frank Tynan, an inventor. When be reached home he was invitel by Mr. Heathcote. an old friend, who was also an ironmaster to ioin his firm in order to avoid opposition. but Endicot said he was determisecf to rsgain the works' once held by his a -her- CHAPTER II.-Brian, after leaving Mr Heathcote, wandered to a spot where years before he used to meet Vivien Lenox, his little sweetheart, daughter of the classicat master at King Edward's School. and to hii surprise discovered a letter in the tree which they had used for depositing m--s R?gee to each other It was from Vivien. I and was e--dent', written in the to?E: ago. She expressed surprise that he had not called upon her. Later he 'earned that Mr. I Lenox was dead from the shock cf receiving a fortune, and that Vivien had left, and was supposed to have married. CHAPTER III.—Bryan visited Mr. Starkey. and waa greeted with outstretched hand. lie took away the lawyer's breath when he t<?d him he was prepared to buy back the works a&ordin ? to the ?v7er's promisa to E;eU beore Bryan Wen# away, and that he could do so without financial assistance, ae he could himself realise half a. million sterling. CHAPTER IV.—In the chat which followed i ."— — — "I am half in love with her myeelf. Bryan learned that Starkey. who was sup- posed to have paid £ 20,000 for the works. now wanted £ 150,000 for them, but would not hand them over. if sold, until after the Parliamentary election, as he wanted the Tote6 of labour. Bryan offered £ 5,000 above the valuation for them. The negotiations broke off by Bryan saying he was off to Mr. Heat h cote's to dinner, and he openly coll- feaeed that he was the lawyer's enemy CHAPTER V.—In leaving B"yan paused before the next house, where the Tyldesleys, relatives of Vivien, dwelt, and he. then heard from her cousin that Vivien was about to marry Starkey. This bolt from the blue was scarcely delivered ere Starkey PA seen approaching the house, and about the same inet&nt Bnen heard Vivien out- side tbo door of the room to which he had been taken. She called out. "I most have a look at my hair, and I've got » new smile in training for my darling old Icvsr." Wtth that ehe came face to face with Bryan, and greeted hIm wth delight. CHAPTER VI-Vlnen confessed to Bryan that Starkey had obtained a magnetic influence over fer, tnjt she was determined to cast him off for Bryan, and she told Yr. TyTdefilfty. her oouein. so. The lattef said that if she did she would have to pay his debts to Starkey. Vivien also informed Starkey of her intention, but he expressed confidence that he would make her his wife, and said he did not love her for her ZIO,OW a year. CHAJPTEB VIl.-Bryan left the be use just before Starkey entered, and he was now ftlled with the idea of marrvinjr Vivien, if only to defeat Starkey. He then visited Mr. Heathcote, and was introduced to the lafcter's daughter. Dolly. whom, of course, he had known years before. Bryan scon grew to like Dtllly. ard at dinner a scheme was evolved to make Bryan a Dartner in the firm of Mr. Heathcote. so as to crush Starkey. CHAPTERS VITI. AND IX.-Mr. Heathcote's works, with Brvan as partner, were re- modelled. and orders simply poured in. One day a, Miss Edith Bell" answered the firm's advertisement for a typist, and was engaged by Mr. Luatley. chief clerk. She. unknown to Bryan. was the real Vivien Lenox. Meanwhile Starkey was working up discontent amongst the workmen of wryan's Arm. CHAPTER X. sees Starkey and Dick Tyldes- Jey, Vivien a cousin, ordered away from the lOuee of Lord Rosenby by the latter in erson, Vivien making the request. This Vivien, of course, is not "Miss Bell." the typiat. CHAPTER XI. "IF HE SHOULD MEET HER." "I am so glad that it is all over, Miss Lenox said while they were at lunch, "and you can t think how much I admire you. Lord Rozenby." Bozenby smiled. Tt was a pleasure, I assure you. I have wanted to quarrel with Starkey for a long while, you know. "But I had an idea that you were so • wittily indolent and inoffensive! "And so I am' The life I live is sadlv 1 •nervatmg, He glanced at Endicot with a SIB lie Sow I can imagine you pitching Starkejsfeok and crop back into his motor." "I ana Wbt blessed with your coolness, Rozenby, Bryan laughed. "I never saw ftnvthing better done in mv life; no noise, no fuss, only simple annihilation." "I cultivated that sort of thing when I was in the diplomatic service. I have fought a duel or two. and kilted my tiger." He yacwned. But that was years ago in India. Now, tny dear Miss Lenox. I suppose that I can leave your future movements to be di«cw«se4 with Enfticot. Starkey wilt have to be ,w«tch«d. and 1 ihould imagine that yoiy home with the Tydesleys will now be tmtx?'ble!' friends. Vivien answered, "I have other friends," Vivien answered, tushin? Rozenbv checked the words that rose to his line. 1 shall telegraph to my maid to pack up e-perythlng belonging to me, and leave at o-n-,e," the girl continued, I can find a warm weleome almost anywhere, because I am rich." Roajmby yawned again. I am sure that you will excuse me." he said. rising, I must have a cigar and forty "i n ks. while you two arrange the immediate future." He qiiittk-d the room, and Endicot looked at NfiV Lenox in silence tor a full minute. Shsll we ha, a F-troll in the grounds?" he asked presently. "Yes." she assented. He led the way through a French window that opened into a verandah festooned with sweet-smelling creepers and flowers. It is delightful here," Vivien said. "What a glorion* view! What an ideal spot, and yet Lord Rozenby is not satisfied-iq not happy. If he is determined to sell, Bryan, you must not let the chance be lost. To possess a home like this would be the crown of my ambition." Her eyes were shining. and her heart throbbed tumultously. Bryan understood. I have no objection," he said quietly, "and you will need someone to protect you from the persecutions of Starkey. He brieves himself to be an injured man. You are quite sure that you are making no mis- take. Vivien?" he added, gently. How can I possibly make a mistake, Bryan ?" They left the verandah, and were crossing the lawli in the direction of a. secluded walk in a. well-wooded part of the grounds. The girl was looking up at him with shining eyes, "Ijt I have any regrets at ail they are caused by your ooldness." "Yes. I am afraid that there is little of the gushing lover about me. I hardly under- stated myself at times. And yet the fragrance of the paet is very sweet. The world has giv4)n me so many hard knocks. Vivien." "But you have returned them with interest. Bryan." "X"ee." he answered grimly. There w" a. brief silence, and she nestled closer to him. "Why will you make me say everything?" she jtfeked rep rfeactjfullt.* "I am suite thait your mind is away in those old worke again, or, perhaps, you are thinking of Blackpool and Miss Dorothy Heathcote. Do you know, Bryan, that I am awfully jealous of Miss Heathcote3' He frowned a. little. "She is a. good and beautiful woman. You must not he jealous of her." Then he said banteringK. "There is only one being of whom you need be jealous, Vivien, and that, is yourself lyself she affected amazement. The little Vivien of my boyhood." "I understand. You are disappointed in the Vivien of to-day. But Bryan, mv dear one. I could not always remain little and good. You looked at me then with different eyes. You were an enthusiastic, sentimental boy—probably steepened in Tennyson as-as I was. The stolen interviews—the stolen kisses "There were no kisses. Vivien!" "Then there should be now" He pressed his lips to her cheek, and she sighed. "One would think that "ou were my parent or elderly guarå¡aro." she laughed shortly 'Oh. I know that the disillusionment must hava been shocking when you came home to f,, n Iine engaged to be married to an Old wolf like Starkev." "It was," admitted Bryan, "and I had that very day discovered your last letter written in the long ago, still lying in the hollow of our trysting tree. It was all stained, but perfectly legible." I "And you have it now, Bryan?" "It is next to my heart." "I should like to see it." II "You shall some day, as soon as I can associate yon with my boyish love-dream! I will not deceive you, Vivien. I believe that [ you care for me. but I do not love you in the i way that a man ought to love the woman he is to marry. I don't think that I should have looked upon you a second time had it not b'1 for our little romance in the past. I h?e felt it a, duty. too. to take you from I SUi rky." "You are brutally blnnt." she -aid. rather bitterly. But I will make you rare for me yet. Br37 an I Sijence fell between them for a while. At 1 length Bryan spoke again. r have defeated Shrkfoy at every point. and I am satined. Indeed, if he were not such an out-and-out rogue I could find it in my heart to pity him. But let us dismiss the man from our minds, once and for all." He shrugged his shoulders contemptuously. The home of the Tyldesleys is impossible for you now. I understand." I am afraid so. I hate being so near to Mr. Starkey. It would not matter if I could trust my cousin." She clasped her hands tightly, and a frightened look crept into her eyes. I will not act hastily. My aunt is a good soul. and I will speak to Dick. He may have meant no harm in bringing Mr. Starkey here. "And in the meantime. Vivien, you can hurry the wedding arrangements. It makes no difference to me how soon. I must go to America next month, and perhaps I can take my wife with me." Oh. Bryan! Genuine tears sprang into her eyes. "You have made me Bo happy, and I am not the sort of girl that cries very often. I kpow that I am not half good enough for yon. but I will love you as no other woman can, If I have made you happy I am satisfied." he answered gently. "You can be ready in a monfhl" Oh. yes." She spoke eagerly, ffu, hing warmly the while. • Then we will consider it settled." He glanced at his watch. "I must not forget my run to Blackpool." They walked back to the house slowly. and a. great triumph shone in Vivien Lenox's eves. Bryan's manner was almost inclif- ferent. He had saved his sweetheart of the long ago from a man wtiom he loathed. He had regarded it as a duty. and he had done it. Lord Rozenby met them on the verandah, a keen glwnce from one to the other. then looked quickly away, '.r am afraid that I make a very poor host." he apologised, "but two are company. &c.. you know," he smiled drearily- "1 hope > that Miss Lenox has decided upon a haven of refugs." 'We have decided to get married," Endicot answered bluntly "Then I may be able to get rid of Grev st(y.ke! ROTenbv said. "Allow me to con- gratulate you." There will be a wedding within a month, then we shall go to America, where I have rather pressing business In the meanwhile. Miss Lenox will stay at Tyldesley's; perhaps you will undertake the duties of beet man. j Rozenby?" Sorrv. old boy; but I am going abroad myself almost immediately. Three o'clock ? So it is. by Jove! And you must leave in half an hour?" I "Ye&. I must see Miss Lenox safely home .j before I go away." 'Good' I will order the carriage. and some black coffee and cigarettes *at the same tine," Then he whispered in Eridicot's ear "I could not endure Being at the wedding. for I am half in love with Vivien Lenox Bivself," He turned abruptly and quitted the room Ten minutes later the coffee was served, and Rozenby was chatting gaily to Miss Lenox. You love Greystoke. he was saying; "and you shall have it. If I were a very wealthy man it should be my wedding present to the most beautiful of women. I have wondered if T could afford it several times of late." • Dont be ridiculous!" Taaghed Vivien. There was a. mixture of incredulity and amazement on her face. "It is selfish of me even to wish you to pell Greystoke. You will want to settle down some day." "Never!" he answered shortly. "Wha.t a delightfully singular man ycfti arer, *a&-bcT, careless rejoinder. ￼ I am 4^ry to have to hurry YOU." Bryan said entering the room by way of the French window. "The ctt-rriage is waiting. Good-bye, Rozenbv. for a day or two, anyway. "I rather like that fellow upon a closer acquaintance." he told Vivien as the carriage bore them in the direction of Stourbridge. "At first I regarded him as an empty- headed noodle, but he has been so ueed to playing parts in hie diplomatic career that the habit has become second nature." (TO BE CONTINUED TO-MORROW).

Passing Pleasantries The cijrij-.haired little sprite of the house came running to her father in the study. and, throwing her arms'about his neck, whis- pered confidentially in his ear: "Oh, papa, it's raining!" Papa was writing on a subject that occupied his mind to the exclusion of mat- ters aside, so he said rather sharply, "Well, let it rain," Yes. papa, I was going to." was her quick response. A certain country minister was one day visiting some of his church members, among whom was an old gossiping woman, who was always complaining of something. No sooner had he sat down than she began with her grumbling. Bit." said the minister, L don't see what you are always griimb lin? at.

ASSOCIATION GAME. ♦ THE CASE OF "MISTAKEN IDENTITY. BAD POLICY FOR SOUTH WALES FOOTBALL. T3y "CITIZEN."] The writer of Southern Chatter" in the Athletic New- this week take3 up the subject referred to iu the letter of Mr. J. Foster whict appeared in the Western Mail on Saturday. He states:— The South Wales and Monmouthshire Football Association have decided in the case of the Treharris player I ordered off the field in the Cardiff- Treharris match recently that the referee was mistaken in the identity of the I player. This decision has caused much sur- prise in Southern League circles. There was no suggestion of mistaken identity before the ca.se went to the South Wales Football Association omcials, and it is rather remarkable that when the point was raised they did not call upon the referee to give further Evidence. The officials in question do not appear to be pursuing a course calculated to encourage efficient refereeing in South Wales. The clubs are continually asking for strong referees, but there will be no inducement for officials to accept appoint- ments if their efforts to eliminate certain undesirable features do not meet with more support. No doubt, a, good many readers of thif column are wondering what everybody is making such a, fuss about. The exoneration of a player who comes under the ban of the referee, by whom his misdeeds are reported, is no new thing, and the wonder is that the South Wales and Monmouth Football Association, in addition to telling Mr. Foster —as they did by their finding—that he did not know what he was doing at the time he sent the player off the field, did not severely censure the official and require him to apologise to the player. With the exception of Mr. Foster, who does not know his South Wales and Monmouth Football Associa- tion very intimately, nobody ever supposed that the body which governs the Associa- tion game in South Wales would sud- denly become heroic enough to do their duty jnet because for once a match under their jurisdiction wae referred by a man who knew something about the game and had the courage to act as a. referee is required to act. The present writer told Mr. Foster after the Treharris match wae over that the man whom he intended to report would probably be discharged without a stain on his character, with the regrets of the com- mittee for troubling him to appear to defend himeelf. Mr. Foster thought tifee prophecy was 9, joke, but in forwarding thêMtr which was pub- lished on Saturday he sent a covering letter, as follows:- I have enclosed a letter, which I hope you VHll insert in your paper, in reply to the finding of the committee re sending off H. Williams, the Treharris player, in the Southern League match at Cardiff. In conversation with you after the match you forecasted the result. I can now under- stand how football legislation is carried on in South Wales. If some drastic measures are not taken the whole thing will become a farce. One can really claim no credit for being able to tell what the South Wales and Mon- mouth Football Association executive would do in the light of previous experience. Not long ago a member of that executive assured his colleagues that the officials of his club were determined to do all they could to put down rough play, and then Went home and addressed a violent, threatening letter to the press, promising Cardiff City a warm time throughout South Wales. The South Wales and Monmouth Football Association did not censure him for that, and it is not to be expected that when they permit one of their own number to incite players to rough and dirty conduct they will be hard on a player who takes the committeeman's advice. The matter is not to be allowed to rest at the amazing decision of the South Wales and Monmouth Football Association, however. The Southern League have something to say in an affair of this kind, and may be depended upon to say it. Mr. H. Bradshaw, the secretary of the Southern League, is col- lecting information for the purpose of laying the case before the International Board, and the matter will next be heard of when the representatives of the Welsh Association on that body are invited to explain the vagaries I of the South Wales and Monmouth Football Association.

INTER-'VARSITY CONTEST. UNLUCKY DEFEAT OF THE LIGHT BLUES. j G. T. Pt-s. OXFORD UNIVERSITY 4 t 2-3 Cambridge University 3 1 18 The thirty-eighth match between the above teams took place at Queen's Club, West Ken- sington, on Tuesday. There were several heavy showers in the morning, but shortly before the start the weather cleared and gave promise of being tine. The ground, .,f course, was very heavy, a natural conse- quence of the extraordinary rain of late. Both teams were a., announced. Of pre- vious matches Oxford have won sixteen and Cambridge twelve, with nine drawn. 'i iKre were fully 10,000 spectators when the teams made their appearance. Turner kicked off against a freshening cross wind. Cambridge were pressed at the start, but an exciting incident looked like a Cambridge try. Sehofield passed to Lewis in his 25. and the latter sprinted clear, out there was no try, the touch judge having previously decided that the ball was in touch. Oxford neitt attacked stronglv by Poultoi. and Green scored. Turner converting. The Oxford backs made a fine movement, and Buchanan, Poulton, and Geen handled, the latter running over, but losing the baU. Cambridge dropped out. but were quickly l forced back in their 25, and then they made a fev.- rushes, but Oxford, getting the ball, Started passing. Allen was held. but the I ball went across to Poulton. who put Geen with a good try. wfcpch Turner gcaled. Cambridge replied with a try by Oven, Lockhart converting finely. 1 Oxford continued to got the ball and attacked frequently Allen on the run was 1 thrice checked because he was not fast enoueh. A long pass bv Poulton was fielded, and Geen went m Turner missed. A great run by Sehofield put Lewis in with a try. Lockhart converting. Oven? scored again, and Lockhart kicked a. grand goal amid excitement. On the resumption. Cambridge were penal- i.;ed for off-side, and play settled at the centre. A brilliant run by Buchanan took the game to the Cambridge line. Lewis relief ine to touch. Lewis. again receiving from Schoiield, got in at the corner, but Lockhart failed to convert. Poulton made an opening for Turner, who was collared on the line and lost the blfll. Buchanan then passed to Poul- ton, who Feinted, and ran in undsr the posts. Turner converted, making the scores -level. Cambridge, a man short, through Lewis having been hurt. were now losing the ball, and Buchanan knocked on when almost in. Cambridge were penned on their line, where there was a desperate scrimmage, until Poul- ton secured from Buchanan and ran in behind the posts for Turner to convert. Ox- ford continued to have the better of the game, but Cambridge were rather Unlucky to be beaten. SWANSEA V. CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY.

DIVORCE DAMAGES DISCUSSED. ♦ — SIR EDWARD CARSON'S OPINION. WOULD AWARD IN SOME CASES 1100,000. The Royal Commission on Divorce and I Matrimonial Causes resumed its sittings on Tuesday in London, Lord Gorell presiding. Dr. Adler, Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the British Empire, expressed the opinion that present-day facilities for divorce did not tend to raise the moral standard f the com- munity. At the same time, he thought that in the best interests of Jews and Christians alike the procedure for obtaining divorce should be made less costly than at present. IRREGULAR DIVORCES. One effect of the present high cost of divorce proceedings was that many foreign jews resorted to one of the foreign rabbi's settled in this country, who would grant a divorce in the erroneous belief that since the marriage had taken place abroad a civil dissolution of such a marriage was not necessary. Divorces were also granted accord- ing to the Mosaic Law, where a husband had been guilty of misconduct or where the wife had been deserted. These people believed they were not acting unlawfully, but the results of this procedure were most grave. Cases of bigamy were frequently the out- come of these irregular divorces. Dr. D. L. Alexander. K.C.. president of the London Committee of the British Jews. agreed with Dr. Adler's statement as to irregular jewish divorces. Mr. H. S. Q. Henriques. representing the West London Congregation of British Jews, said he did not believe there was any wide- spread desire among the jewish community in England that special privileges in con- nection with divorce should be granted to them. They agreed that the expense should be decreased, but they wished that this and other reforms should be made for the benefit of all. THE PROCEDURE IN IRELAND. I Mr fcdward Carson, gave I evidence. He said he had practised in Ire- land before he came to England, and he believed what he was going to say about Ireland was a very strong argument against further facilities fit divorce. He was strongly of opinion that there ought not to be further facilities granted for divorce. In Ireland there were no real matrimonial division courts at all, and the courts in that country had no power to grant a divorce a mensa et thoro, and in the case of a man taking proceedings against his wife it was generally thought necessary for him to sue the co-respondent for damages. After that a petition was filed with the House of Lords, and it came before that body on appeal. After investigation there it was passed on to the House of Com- mons, which had a Standing Committee for Divorce. They made a somewhat perfunctory examination into the facts, and if it was passed the marriage was dissolved by Act of Parliament. For the eight years from 1902 he found the number of decrees granted in Ireland was about four per year. NO DESIRE FOR MORE FACILITIES. It was possible for poor people to sue in forma pauperis, but he had never heard of anyone in Ireland suing under that provi- sion. He had also made inquiry to see if there wae any demand in Ireland for further facilities for divorce on the part of either the Roman Catholic or Protestant Churches. The former set their faces against divorce altogether, and the latter were against any relaxation of the divorce laws. He believed as a whole that it would be a very great mistake to give any increased facilities. Proceeding, Sir Edward said he had pro- fessionally found that there was a growing feeling of restlessness amongst young married people, and over and over again when squabbles began to arise they began to fling the livorco court at each other. They began to feel that there was a, way out, and at an early stage they made up their minds to take the first chance they could get. He had often spoken seriously to those young couples, and asked them if they were perfectly sure they had lost all love, and he had told them to so home and think about it. Often they had come back and said they were glad that they had so re-con- sidered it. He was in favour of the continuation of the publication of reports of divorce cases in newspapers. It was true that some papers grossly abused the right of publication, but the fact that some of the details of divorce cases came before the public was, in his opinion, a deterrent. DAMAGES SHOULD BE HEAVY. ? -1 air Edward also dealt vvxtu me question of damages in divorce cases. Under some cir- cumstances he suggested the damages granted were absurdly inadequate. If a man had his home broken up and his wife, his greatest treasure, deliberately taken away from him, very often by a friend, he did not get as much as he would by the sale of her picture if it WaAI by a, celebrated artist. He thought it would be a very salutory thing if, as a, rule, damages became far heavier than at present-XS,000 was nowadays considered very heavy damages. But take the case of a man with £ 30,000 a year. If a man with that income did what he had referred to, he thought the damages should be £ 100,000. The President reminded the speaker that the assessing of damages was a matter for juries, and asked if he (Sir Edward) sug- gested that a judge should be the assessor. Sir Edward remarked that the judges seemed to be more parsimonious than juries. Anyhow, heavy damages would be a great deterrent. In a,nswer to questions. witness said that he did not agree to placing the sexes on terms of equality. He would not place an unfaithful husband on the same level an unfaithful wife: he did not think that the positions were parallel. He did not think that-a man's occasional offence had such a degrading effect upon him, whereas a woman became very much more depraved. The Commission again adjourned. ABOLITION OF DIVORCE. Mr. A. G. Howells, Cardiff, gave a paper on Diorce" at St. Vincent's debating class, Cardiff. The author strongly advocated the efaaement of the Act from the Statute Book. An interesting discussion followed, in which several of the members took part. j

A CURRANT IN THE PUDDING IS WORTH five grape; on the tree. Five pound's of beautiful Greek grapes are required to make one pound of currants, which means that currants are concentrated food, and contain the grape sugar of five times their weight of fresh fruit. Therefore currants are the very best ingredient for the sweet course. There are many ways of using them with great advantage to health and pocket. No difficulties lie in the path of currant cookery. The fruit is cheap, and its own great worth makes every dish wherein it appears palatable and health giving. Every leading grocer has a supply of most useful little Currant cookery books, a copy of which he will gladly give you free on request. Try this recipe to-day. CURRANT FINGERS. Roll out about jib. of short-crust paste into a square, and cut it in two; cover one piece thickly over with best currants. then put a few very small bits of butter here and there, also a grate or two of nutmeg, and sprinkle over with castor sugar. Cover this over with the second piece 'of paste, press down the edges, and place on a baking sheet; prick all over with the prongs of a fork, and bake in a fairly hot oven for about two minutes. When finished take out, dredge with castor sugar, and cut into fingers. e-Z8Z6

CLAIM TO £ 36,000,000. I A romantic action against the Dutch States is looming in the air. Three hundred years ago General Wirtz made his fortune in the Dutch Indies and retired to Amsterdam to end his days. On his death he bequeathed half of his fortune to the city of Amsterdam and the other half to his natural heirs. As the latter failed to put in an appearance —they had probably lost track of their wealthy relative—the Dutch Government took possession, -,nd as the total fortune amounted to C4,000, the sum taken over by the State amounted to £ 2,000. It is this sum, which at compound interest has in the meantime swollen to about £ 26,000,000, that is the bone of contention. The rightful heirs appear to be subjects of the Duchy of Luxembourg. Ten years ago one of them discovered the glorious possibili- ties awaiting the descendants of General Wirtz; gradually the list of claimants grew, until, at the present moment, they number 93. One of the claimants is M. Jacques Man- derscheid. a barber in the Park Monceau district of Paris.

« WIRELESS" AT LAW. I MR. MARCONI'S COUNSEL AND SIR OLIVER LODGE. In the Charfcery Division on Tuesday Mr. Justice Parker continued the hearing of the proceedings by, Mr. Guglielmo Marconi and the Marconi Wireless Telegraphy Company (Limited) against the British Radio-Tele- graph and Telephone Company (Limited), infringement of patents being alleged. Mr. Astbury, K.C. (for the plaintiffs), said he desired for his own satisfaction to oorreot a mis-etatement which had appeared in some oj the newspapers. In discussing the paper I read by Sir Oliver Lodge in 1894, he saiji that in that paper Sir Oliver had not suggested or contributed anything to wireless teleg- raphy. Some of the newspapers had omitted the date, which made Mm appear to say that Sir Oliver, great man as he was, had con- tributed nothing to wireless telegraphy. That was an absurd statement. Sir Oliver Lodge was a great man, and after the date of the first Marconi patent of 1896 had himself worked in the field of wireless telegraphy and produced a system of his own. NOT RUNNING DOWN ANYONE ELSE. Counsel said the plaintiffs' case did not depend upon the running down of anyone else's work, and this particular passage made it look as if it did. After this explanation, counsel proceeded to give a highly technical description of the Marconi system. In concluding his opening statement, he declared that the defendants had made an absolutely clean copy of the plaintiffs' wireless system without any alteration of any sort or kind, except that they used a different transformer. Mr. James Swinburne, M.Inst.C.E., was the first witness. He said he had devoted him- self to electricity for many years. He explained the old needle and Morse systems of ordinary telegraphy by wire, and the principles of what is called inductive teleg- raphy, of which no practical use ha-s been made. The hearing was again adjourned.
ADRIFT IN SWANSEA DOCK. The steamer Beeswing broke adrift in the Prince of Wales Dock Basin, Swansea, on Tuesday morning, owing to the high wind, and 'would probably have caused considerable damage to the lock had it not been for the timely assistance of the gate-men, who secured her after some trouble.
