War Office Reform. Lord Roberts, under the new order in Council, is restored, as Commander-in-Chief, to a position of authority which virtually concentrates in one personality powers that are not exercised by one man alone in any Continental Army. The Secretary of State for War is still to remain respon- sible to Parliament, but the head of the War Office is really to be head of the Military Department, who will have to exercise general command over the farces at home and abroad and have the CONTROL OF ALL THE BRANCHES of the service. Mr. Balfour's Order in Council of six years "ago made the Com- mander-in-Chief only nominally more than equal in rank and power with his own Adjutant-General, but the new order will change all that and put the head of the army in his proper and paramount place. The duties of the Commander-in-Chief are thus described: The Commander-in-Chief shall exercise general command over his Majesty's military forces at home and abroad, shall issue Army Orders,' and hold periodical inspections of the troops. He shall be the PRINCIPAL ADVISER of the Secretary of State on all military questions, and shall be charged with the control of the departments of the Adjutant- General, Director-General of Mobilisation and Military Secretary, and the general supervision of the other military depart- ments of the War Office. He shall be charged with the general distribution of the Army at home and abroad, and with the selection and proposal to the Secretary of State for War of fit and proper persons to be recommended for commissions in the Regular forces, and of fit and proper officers, whether of the Regular or Auxiliary forces, for promotion, for staff and other military appointments, and for military honours and rewards."
Concentration Camps. At a meeting of the Rochester Diocesan Society held in London 011 Wednesday, the Bishop of Rochester read a letter from Mr. Brodrick, in reply to one he had written to him on the subject of concentration camps. In it the War Minister enumerates the anxious exertions that have been made by the Government 110 alleviate the lot of the Boer women and children who are living under our protection, and promises that a large volume of reports on the subject will be published shortly. From these, he says, it will be evident that the abnormal mortality is mainly due to causes incident to a state of war." Consideration has been given to the proposal that the camps should be removed to the coast, and if medical testimony is in favour of such a course the expense will not stand in the nay."
USK. I Agent— Mrs. 8. K. Jones, SCudontr I ANGLING.—On the last day of the salmon fishing season (Friday last), Mr H. W. Pride killed two fish, and Mr H. Humphreys one. Colonel Rocke killed one on the previous day. FUNBRAL OF Mus. STONB.—The funeral of MrR. Stone took place on Monday afternoon, the interment being in Usk Churchyard. There was a very large attendance of townspeople to shew sympathy with Mr Enoch Stone in his sad bereavement, and a large number of floral tokens were sent. The Vicar (Rev. P. L. C. Nash) officiated, assisted by Mr. C. Baines (who read the Lesson), and the service was choral, Mr W. R. Martin (the organist) and the choir attending. The Psalm was chanted, and the hymns com- mencing "Jesu, Lover of my Soul" and "Now the labourer's task is o'er" were sung in the Church and at the graveside respectively. The cofliu was of polished oak with massive brass fittings, the breastplate bearing the inscription :— Harriet Stone, Died 30th October, 1901, aged 59 years." Mr. B. F. Stockham was the under- taker.
INQUEST IN H.M. PRISON. In H.M. Prison, Usk, on Saturday aflernoon, I Mr. Herbert Williams (deputy coroner) and a jury (of which Ir. E. Rowen was chosen foreman) held an inquest on the body of William John Morgan, the infant son of a female prisoner. Annie Morgan, single woman, stated that she was committed to the prison, from Tredegar, on the 15th October, for a month, in default of paying a fine of 40s. Deceased was her child. He was born on the 18th June last. Ever since he was born he had been weakly, and since being in prison she had been with him in the infirmary, where he died at 20 minutes to six on the previous afternoon. She was in prison with the baby in September, and he was ill then. Charlotte Ward, matron, gave formal evidence as to the reception of the mother and child, and said that in consequence of the latter's illness both had been in the infirmary until the child's death. Dr. Boulton bad prescribed for him, and she had personally seen that the treatment had been carried out, and was present at the death. The child had had brandy and milk, and was given every care and attention. When he was in before he was very ill, and it was not expected he would go out alive. The mother was only away a month before being sent back again. In reply to the foreman, she said the child when received in the first instance was covered with ulcers. His skin was now clear to what it was. Dr. Bonlton, the prison surgeon, said the child was under his care since the time admitted with his mother, and had been under constant observa- tion. The child had evidently been in a very weak condition from birth, and he daily expected him to die when in the Prison before, when he was covered with sores. He improved, however, but when be returned he was in a bad state again. Death was due to general debility accelerated by the taint of a disease. The Coroner, in summing up, remarked that but for the death occurring in the Prison, no inquest would have been necessary, and the jury at once returned a verdict in accordance with the evidence of Dr. Boulton.
PONTYPOOL RURAL DISTRICT COUNCIL. The monthly meeting of this Council was held at the Sessions Houae, Usk, on Monday afternoon. Mr. William Marfell (vice-chairman) presided, and there were also present: -Rev. W. W. Jones, Messrs. J. James, tj. Bevan, W. H. Charles, T. Watkins (clerk), and R. Derrett (surveyor and inspector). SURVEYOR'S (REPORT. I The Surveyor, in his report, dealt at some length with the supply of stones to various districts, reported an application for a watering place at Goytre, and asked for instructions as to hedge plashing. The Goytre Parish Council wrote with teference to the suggested watering place, near Haymeadow. It appeared that what was wanted was 811 entrance and exit to the water there, so that instead of the bridge being used a team might take water at the brook and drive on. Mr. Charles thought the necessary work might be done. It only meant a few loads of stone to do the job, and it would be altogether an inexpensive matter. After some discussion it was relegated to a Committee consisting of the Chairman, Mr. James, Mr. Charles, and the Surveyor, for a report. TUBERCULOSIS. In a circular letter the Local Government Board dealt with the question of Tuberculosis in Cattle, and its effects upon the human consumer of milk and meat, and urged that local authorities should continue to take the same precautions as hitherto with regard to the matter, notwithstanding the expressed opinions of Professor Koch, and pending the report of the Royal Commission which had been appointed to consider the question. A letter was read from the Local Government Board 0.1110 on the subject of isolation hospitals. PONTHIR ROW. The Medical Officer (Dr. Jenkins) reported that there was an improvement iu the sanitary surroundings of the houses in this Row, and he could not now say that they were unfit for habitation. GARROW VILLAGE. I A Committee was appointed to deal with a question of drains here. question of drains here. PONTNEWYDD ROAD. I Mr. P. Lawrence wrote stating that he would sell at Is per yard the land that was required from him for the widening of the Pontnewydd road. Mr. R. Laybourne, another landowner affected, on being informed of this, said he would accept the same. The question was deferred for further con- sideration, it being understood that the Clerk would write to the Parish Council in the mean time. WATER SUPPLY. I Mr. D. J. Lougher, engiueer, had reported on the question of the levels, the gauging of the ppring, &c., for the Wain and Ponthir Water Supply, and it was ascertained that some of the houses could not be supplied by gravitation. Mr. Lougher had been asked to estimate the cost of wells as an alternative, and the question was for the time deferred for consideration. MISCELLANEOUS. I Instructions were given for the fencing of the Oak Quarry, Gwehelog. Amongst the bills for payment was one from Dr. O'Keefe for X2 2s 6d, infectious diseases' notification fees, which was stated to be the largest ever paid by the Council. Uuder the Agricultural Rates Act the Local Government Board notified the payment to the Loudon agents of the Council of £ 143 odd.
URBAN DISTRICT COUNCIL. I The monthly meeting of the U*k Urban District Council was held on Thursday evening in the Town Hall, Usk, when Mr S. A. Hiley presided in conse- quence of the absence of Mr H. A. Addis, through illness. There were also present Messrs Reuben Morgan, J. Hennessey, F. Jennings, W. Hohbs, H. Ault, W. Workman, G. Edmuuds, E. W. Waters, A. F. Lucas (clerk), and T. Rees, jr. (surveyor and inspector). STREET COMMITTEE.

Slade, The Mardy, £ 6 12s 6d; Mr Oliver Jenkins, Usk, £ 5 5s; Mr Thomas Davies, New Barn, E5. Only Mr T. Morgan tendered for the hauling of the broken stone from H.M. Prison on to the roads of the district, and his offer to do the work at 9d per yard was accepted. The Surveyor had been instructed to get tenders for work reported to be necessary to the Jubilee Clock. The report was adopted. For the work of repairing the woodwork of the Jubilee Clock and painting in connection therewith, Mr W. J. Sweet quoted £ 1 2a Gd, and Mr J. Whitton, 12s. This matter was referred back to the Committee with power to act, the disparity in the prices causing the Council to fancy some mistake had been made. LIGHTING OF THB TOWN. I The Gas Committee's report stated that Mr Reuben Morgan had been reappointed their Chair. man. The whole of the street lamps, 46 in number, had been supplied with new regulating burners, and better lighting results were expected therefrom. A new lamp had been put up in Porthycarne-streefc to replace one broken by accident. The question of re-adjusting some of the lamps had been considered, but was adjourned for further thought. The report was adopted. I FINANCE. The Finance Committee recommended the pay- ment of JE99 18,4 6d, on account of loan* and interest E14 6a Clerk's half-year's salary £6 5s, Collector's half-year's salary; L12 lis lOd, Surveyor, on account of wages, &o. Of the loans £20 was paid out of the balance of capital of an old loan, by the sanction of the L.G.B. The Chairman explained that some years ago a balance of X60 or £70 was left unexpended of a loac for sewerage purposes, and that amount the L G.B. would not, until now, allow theni to touch. Now, however, they consented to its being applied in yearly instalments to the repayment of another loan. The report was adopted. The Cleric reported payments to Treasurer as follow:— £ 125 by the Collector on account of the general district rate; £ 25 7s 4d on account of market tolls ( £ 5 Oil 2d. £2 16s 2d. 915 6s iUd, and JE2 4:8 2d) £9(} from the County Council on account of maintenance of main roads for the half-year; L6 12s 6d, manure tender and one or two smaller items. PROPOSED VOLUNTEER PRESENTATIONS."] Miss E. B. Clark wrote asking for the use of the Board room of the Town Hall for a meeting of the subscribers to the Usk Volunteer Fund. which it was proposed to call next week, and asking for an open date. Mr R. Morgan said it was a public matter, and a good many were interested in it, or ousrht to be. The Chairman said he presumed the Council would grant the use of whichever room of the Hull was necessary for the purpose. It was a matter which had everyone's sympathy, he took it. He proposed that the application be granted. Mr Hobbs seconded, and it was agreed to: also that the use of the Hall should be granted, if required, for any presentation that might be made. TRUCKING CATTLE. Mr G. Edmunds referred to the difficulty experienced, by some people, in getting their cattle "trucked" away from Usk on Fiir Day, October 2>'lth. In consequence of no trucks being available, one dealer put his cattle in a place from which they were let out, and he had to spend the next day hunting for seven that were missiug. Something should be done to present a recurrence of this at the next fair. Mr Waters said the cattle were kept about so long that the Hereford Market on the next day wis missed. In former years the cattle had been taken on to the London and North Western system because of the cheaper tariff, but this year that was not done. Mr Jennings said if thnt was the case there wa3 some excuse for the G.W.R. Company not being prepared for an exceptional rush. He knew that a larsre numbor of trii,iks were filled that day at Usk. Mr Workman said a number were telegraphed for from Swindon, but did not arrive. Mr Hobbs remarked that if the fair had been on another day the G.W.R. Company would not htve been trouble), as the animals would have been walked away. It was ultimately resolved to draw the attention of the G.W.R. Company to the matter. THE CATTLR MARKET. ) Mr Eftmunds brought forward the question of the piece of ground adjoining the Cattle Market, and suggested that something ought to be done to it now. It might be ploughed up and harrowed. Mr Waters said the Surveyor was doing a good work there by filling up with road scrapings. He thought they might get a face" on it without the ploughing and harrowing. Mr Hobbs said it would not cost a lot to plough and harrow. No decided action in the matter was fixed upon.
FOOTBALL. I UfíK GOLDEN BUTTERFLIES played Wainfelin Boys, at Waiufelin, on Saturday last, and were defeated by 2 tries to one. F. Mayberry scored for the Butterflies. USK V. MONMOUTH GRAMMAR SCHOOL. I Usk met the above named team on Saturday last, before a good number of spectators. Usk kicked off towards the River, and Finlinson was tackled before he could return, thus leaving play in the visitors' 25. From a kick down to A. Williams, this player fielded smartly aud scored. The place kick failing, the School kicked out, and the leather was returned to half-way. From a scrum, A. Weare got the ball and after a smart run gave to A. Williams, who looked like getting through, but the visitors' back collared him well, near the line. R. Roberts next had hard lines in not getting over, being just held outside. From the ensuing scrum A. Weare got possession, and tried a drop at goal, but failed to raise the ball. Usk returned to the visitois' line again after the drop out, but the best of defensive work kept them from scoring. The School worked to half-way with a nice dribble, but theihomesters drove them back to defend their line. The visitors' obtained a free, but A. Williams returned to his opponents' 25. Usk tried a bout of passing, but a pass by H. Hill to his wing went astray. A. Weare made a nice opening again, and passed R. Roberts, but the latter was grassed before he had gone far. The School worked to half-way by good footwork. F. Williams got away from a line out and took play to the visitors' 25. E. Waters was prominent in a dribble, and play was taken still farther into the. School's quarters. A. Weare made a determined dash for the line, but Lewis, the visitors' half, tackled him well. The School started passing and worked their way to neutral territory. There another pretty bout was seen, Fiulinsoll going right up to the homesters' line, but A. J. Thomas tackled him finely. A minor followed, and Usk kicked out, play being taken to half-way wheu half-time was sounded, the scure reading:— Usk 1 try. Moumouth Grammar School..Nil. The School re-started, and A. Williams got in a good return to touch at half-way. Usk started a bout of passing but it came to grief at the visitors' 25 line. F. Davies was very prominent in a forward dribble, which toak play close to the School's line. The visitors obtained a free, but no advantage was gained, the leather being returned close to their line, and a minor resulted from the following scrum. The drop out was returned, and the School wended their way with a fine dribble to the Usk 25. From a scrum here, A. WeaTe got away, and gave to A. Williams who only had the back to pass, but be tackled him finely and brought him down. Griffiths tried to break away but was grassed before he had gone far. With play in the homesters' 25, F. Davies broke away from a line out and dribbled up to the visitors' full back, Weare was in attendance, and snapping up the ball, raced down the field and scored. A. Williams negotiated. The visitors kicked off, and H. Hill returned the leather well to touch at half- way. The School got a free and took play to the homesters' 25. Usk came away with a dribble, and Weare, picking up, raced over in the corner. A. Williams made a. good attempt at goal but failed. The School dropped out and a good return was made. J. Knight made a nice run which took play to the visitors' 25. J. Stead was prominent in a dribble, and a bit more ground was gained. A. Weare had hard lines in not getting over after this, being held just uutside, and a minor resulted. The School kicked out and the ball being returned, the visitors tried a bout of passing, but the tackling of the homesters epoiled it. Finlinson picked up the leather in the loose, and looked all over a ecorer but J. Knight had him from behind. The homesterB heeling the ball from a scram gave another chance to the halves, and A. Weare picking up gave to H. Hill, but the latter's pass to A. Williams went wrong, and a good chance wa lost. Play was now in the visitors' 2o, and A. Weare again getting hold, after a tricky run gave up to D. James, who evaded the back and gor, over near the posts. A. Williams made a good attempt to majorise, but failed. Time was then sounded.
