The Treaty of Portsmouth. I The signature of the Peace Treaty between Japan and Russia at Portsmouth (N.H.) has engaged the attention of the whole world during the last few days. M. Witte and Baron Komura affixed their names to the document on Tuesday after- noon amid a salute of naval guns and the ringing of church bells, while a brilliant display of flags lent additional significance to the general rejoicing that followed. By all the rights of the conqueror, Japan was entitled to an indemnity that would cover the cost of the war, but in the interests of humanity and civilisation she abandoned the claim, and Russia owes her escape to the magnanimity of our honoured ally, who has thus placed on record the only treaty of modern times which marks the triumph of the East over the West. War, with its terrible carnage on both sides, and enor- mous loss of treasure, has deeply moved mankind, and nations are gradually realis- ing that it should never be resorted to except in dire extremity. The part that President Roosevelt has played in the Peace Conference is fully recognised by both nations. Baron Komura, in tele- graphing the news to the President, said Humanity is under a I LASTING DEBT OF GRATITUDE I to you for the initiation and successful conclusion of the Peace Conference and M. Witte and Baron von Rosen tele- graphed :—" It is not for us to thank you for what you have done in the cause of peace, as your noble and generous efforts have been fittingly acknowledged by our august Sovereigns." Fifty days are al- lowed for the ratification of the Treaty by the respective monarchs, and probably the full text will not be known until then, but meanwhile we do know that it consists of fifteen articles, and that two additional Ones have been agreed to, relative to the evacuation of Manchuria by both armies within eighteen months from the signing of the treaty, and the delimitation of the island of Saghalien. Russia re- cognise4 that Japan possesses in Korea paramount political, military, and economic interests, and enters into an engagement to completely evacuate Manchuria within a specified period, and to relinquish ALL TERRITORIAL ADVANTAGES and all preferential and exclusive conces- and franchises in that region in impair- ment of Chinese sovereignty, or incom- patible with the principle of equal oppor- tunity. In Article 3, Japan engages to restore to China, subject to reform, all those portions of Manchuria which are in her occupation, saving only the regions afforded by the lease of the Liao-tung Peninsula, and Article 5 provides that Saghalien, and all the islands appertaining thereto, and all the public works and properties, shall be ceded to Japan. Russia is to retain and work the Trans-Manchurian Railway, subject to the terms and condi- tions of the concession under whieh it is constructed, and subject also to the condi- tion that it is to be employed exclusively for commercial and industrial purposes. She has further agreed to re-imburse to Japan the actual expenses of the war, and to limit her naval strength in the waters of the Extreme East. We have but briefly outlined some of the principal terms of a Treaty which appears to be a genuine attempt to restore peace and friendship between two Emperors and their respective subjects. May it prove a just and lasting peace.

ANGLING. -The river has once again fallen into a very low state, and very little angling is being done. What is required is a rise of from four to five feet before there will be much more sport. The following If kills" are reported :-Friday, September let-Mr J. Pitt, one, IOlbs, in the Garcoed; Mr H. W. Pride, a grilse, in the Llwynch. The trout season terminated on Friday last, but, with the exception of the month of March and the first week in April, it has been a disappointing one, and since that time few trout have been taken. This is probably in oonsequence of the lowness of the water, as trout seemed pretty plentiful early in the season.

PROPOSED RESUSCITATION OF THE VOLUNTEER BAND. j A meeting was held at the Armoury on Thurs- day evening for the purpose of discussing the future of the Band and seeing what could be done to place it on a firm basis. Captain H. J. Wilcox, captain of G Company, presided, and there were present:—Messrs. A.E.Johnston (sergt.-instructor) D. H. Lewis, G. Mundy, senr., Reg, Roberts, W. J. Sweet, J. Marfell, Reuben Morgan, E. B. Haynes, W. Billingham, F. Williams, George Smith, C. Thomas, A. J. Jones, and W. J. Nicholas. The Chairman said the last general meeting was held last September, when a new committee was formed, the bandmaster presented a list of all the instruments, and the trustees were asked to make an inspection of the same, but this, apparently, had never been done. The committee had met that evening previously, and they had to report that very few band practices had been held, They played in the town at Christmas, but they wanted to see more of the band than that. He thought it was only a matter of getting a good head. Bandmaster Madley and his son had tendered their resignations, having left the town. It was for them to discuss that night what they proposed to do in the future. The Rev. H. Cockson, Llanbadoc, had written expressing the hope that the band would be established on a satisfactory footing and said he would be pleased to give a donation, and he (the Captain) thought others in the town would do the same. He would like to hear the views of the proposed members of the band. They must remember, however, that it must be a Volunteer Band and its members Volunteers. Mr Mundy then proposed that Mr Haynes be appointed bandmaster of G (Usk) Company, and this was carried. Mr Haynes, in reply, thanked them for the honour, and said that before finally accepting the position he should like to know the feelings of the members who had recently been playing, as the Captain had said that members must become Volunteers. He was perfectly willing to re-enroll, but it would be of no use accepting the position and not be able to get the band together. He was prepared to teach young aspirants who were likely to remain a few years in the town. He woald use his influence to get the proposed members to enroll en bloc, and he hoped this would have the desired effect of resuscitating the Volunteers, the number of the Company at the present time, unfortunately, being much below the minimum strength. The meeting was adjourned for a week, Mr Haynea then to report the result of his consulta- tion. The Captain said he was prepared to give every assistance he could to Mr Haynes, and to see any individual who might want to be persuaded to join the Volunteers. 0
ABERSYCHAN. I INQUEST. I Mr M. Roberts-Jones conducted an inquiry at Abersychan Police-station, on Monday, into the circumstances attending the death of Lewis King, 63 years of age, nailmaker, of 3, Mill-road, Pontnewynydd, who died on Friday as the result of injuries received by being knocked down by a lady cyclist on the previous evening.—Supt. James watched the proceedings on behalf of the police, and Mr T. P. H. Watkins acted for persons interested, Alice King, sister, said deceased met with all accident some years ago, and, consequently, suffered from inflammation of the brain. He was very deaf. She saw her brother after the accident, but he was unconscious uutil his death. David Timothy Griffiths, 51, High-street, Abersychan, said that at about seven o'clock on Thursday evening a young lady passed him on a cycle going at the rate of about five miles an hour. She rang her bell twice. He saw her left elbow hit the old man, and the latter fell. A young man on a motor cycle called after her twice, but she rode on. He did not think that the girl was guilty of reckless riding. Thomas Branch, 100, Snatchwood-road, Aber- sychan, said the old man had only a slight blow, but he was weak on his legs, and was easily knocked down. The girl, after colliding with him, nearly ran into a motor cycle. George Baker, 138. Osborne.road. said be could not identify the young lady. He rode after her after helping deceased, but could find no trace of anyone answering her description. She wore a light costume and sailor hat. Dr Barnes said that death was due to concussion of the brain. A verdict of Accidental death was returned.
CAERLEON. Aggal-Mr Berry, Ifemagent, Cross-street. U. D. 0. MEETING. Mr L. F. Stedman presided at Tuesday's meeting and there were also present :-Sir A. W. Maok- worth, Rev. D. B. Jones, Messrs. T. Parry, H. Crease, W. Williams, H. Brewer, C. Talmage, T. R. P. Herbert (Clerk), Dr. de Gruchy (Medical Officer), and J. Green (Collector). Attention was drawn to, and indignation expressed at a paragraph referring to the sanitary condition of Oaerleon, which appeared in a review of the general sanitary condition of the county, based on the medi- cal officers' report, and published by the County Council, The paragraph in question stated, "There is serious overcrowding owing to insufficiency of house accommodation." Dr. de Gruchy's (the medical officer's) annual report was produced, and only contained one reference to a case of overcrowd- ing, which was remedied during the year. The members spoke strongly on the matter, and it was decided to write to the Countv Council, pointing- out that they were not justified in publishing each an attaok on the town. Sir Arthur Mackworth, as chairman of the local Committee of the minature rifle meeting to be held at Caerleon on September 23rd, wrote inviting the Council to join in welcoming Lord Roberts, Lord Tredegar and others who might attend the meeting. The invitation was cordially aocepted. The County Council wrote saying it had been agreed to call the attention of the District Councils, whose area was on the course of the Avon Llwyd River, to the necessity of preventing the pollution of the water by their sewage and other refuse. The Caerleon Council was asked to furnish the County Council with particulars of steps taken by them to provide a remedy. Mr Parry proposed that a reply be sent pointing out that the Caerleon system of drainage was independent of the Avon Llwyd, but that they hoped steps would be taken to prevent the great nuisance caused by what flowed down the river, which was a great injury to health, and affected the whole district- This was carried. The estimate for the next half-year's rate in- cluded £76 for the building of the churchyard wall. It was stated that the re-building of the wall was in connection with the widening of the road, and improving the approach. Several members thought the sum a larsre one, and the Surveyor, replying to a question, said that the Council would take 50 square yards out of the present churohyard, and in making the road straight and wider they would give baok 67 yards. It was decided to defer the matter for a month, and in the meantime to ap- proach the Governors of Williams's Charity with a view to obtaining a contribution towards the cost. The Surveyor reported a case of overcrowding at 6, Usk Side. The house, containing two sitting- rooms and two bedrooms, was occupied by a man, his two sons, acred from 14 to 16 years, a married couple, and a single woman. The sleeping accom- modation was only sufficient for four persons. It was stated that the married couple had gone away for holidays. The usual steps were ordered to be taken immediately.

MONMOUTH. Adent.—Mr.Gifren, Bookseller, Monmouth. DROWNING FATALITY.—lhe bidy of George Mor- gan, Norgrove, employed by Col. F. B. Vaughan Courtfield, as gardener, was recovered from the Wye, near the Ferry Ian, Symonds Yat, on Tues- day. Deceased, a steady, respectable man, had that day week attended the Lydbrook Flower Show, and at night intended to cross the river. An acquaint ance tried to persuade him to go the longer way round, by way of the bridge, as the night was dark and the river was much higher than usual, but he replied that he wanted to get back quickly as he had a lot of work to do. As he was not seen after this, the general belief was that he must have accidentally fallen into the river before getting to his boat and been drowned. Dragging operations were undertaken, but without sucoeas until Tuesday. »

Viscount Portman, one of the best known masters of foxhounds, has stated, says a contemporary, that he considers that the sport of fox-hunting is distinctly on the down-grade," and that, so far as his own pack is concerned, he is inolined to attribute the deterioration of sport to the advance of shooting interests. Experts state that if game preserving be kept up at the same high pressure during the next ten years as it has during the last ten, fox-hunting in many districts will have ceased to exist. Overstocking of the ground with pheasants is asserted to be the cause of the mange among foxes, I y which has partially spoiled hunting in nearly every part of the kingdom during the last ten years. The "Field" has been informed that several foxes have been picked up dead from poison in his neighbourhood, and comments that we have heard very similar things from other counties." It is also stated by the correspondent that three valu- able dogs have been poisoned within fifty yards of his ow house. mp* mmmmmm BIDE tJfc ALLDAYS £ £ « to the War Buy.
