EUROPEAN POUUCS. -0- TWO VIEWS. REMARKABLE TESTIMONY. Many a phrase or word used by prominent men. convey more truths than even the utterers themselves realise. Caiaphas once, under the control of the Holy Spirit, spake a remarkable declaration which we are told. "this spake he not of himself (John xi. 51). Without suggesting that moderns unwittingly "prophesy" as did that. high priest, we can- not but reflect on certain statements which literary men. use, and are compelled to use by the force of circumstances. A few years gone by the Zionists compelled the British press to pay attention to their movements. The Jews are God's witnesses. Witnesses to what and in what form is their testimony ? They are witnesses to a divine purpose, which has to do with Israel's future, and their existence is the "form," or the testimony of its possible realisation. You cannot destroy the race, though you harass the individual. And this in spite of Gentile or Jew. "Salvation is of the Jew," physically, politically, and socially. The only man who has ever been saved was a Jew—though he was the Son of God. The most perfect form of Government that has yet been amongst nations came to Israel, and who would not like his children to adopt the beautiful social codes put in the Proverbs of Solomon ? This by w ay of introduction to the following from the "Daily News," Aug. 25th, 1905: "For the continued existence of this race is in itself a miracle. Other mysterious strains of the human family do indeed preserve their individuality in many and diverse lands, but none are so pertinacious in their refusal to blend as the Jew. The gipsy remains a. gipsy because he shuns the dwellings of a more ad- vanced civilization than his own. In the ghetto, moreover, the Jew has to continue & Jew whether he likes it or not. But the strange triumph of this indestructible race 5s that no success in the field of finance, of literature, or of art, has yet availed to shatter its identity. Whether on the Stock Exchange or in the university, the Jew has .established an easy equality with the Gentile, wherever lie has enjoyed a fair chance in the competi- tion of life. Yet at this moment the Jewish people, however frequent may have been the 'l,oC'cidental amalgamations with Christian fami- lies, maintain an unity extending throughout every continent, and everywhere presenting analogous features. This phenomenon must strike anyone wlio considers it faiily as par- taking of the miraculous, if, indeed, any ex- ception to the laws of social evolution is to be so described. And theunique character of Jewish history prompts the student to wonder whether any of the ordinary rules of prognos- tication are to be applied to this people. If we may be permitted to expect as strange a future for the Jews as their past has been, then there is nothing to excite especial wou- der in the Zionist enthusiasm. It is. of course, exactly in line with the familiar fore- casts of those Christians wlio consider that prophecy is a part of their creed; and this identity between the hopes of the Jew and the Christian interpretation of cert'mi cryptic passages in the Bible is not the least astonish- ing feature of an unparalleled situation." The only comment is: "And this testimony is true." A DARK PICTURE. I The above is very interesting as proving how the Jew and Zionism are treated sym- pathetically in Britain juat now. But other nations have not looked, neither do look at either the Jew or Zionism with favour. Even the Turk has dared to insult the Jew in the Holy City iself. The' Turk would take off his shoe and throw it at the passing Jew, and compel him like a dog to bring it back. It is recorded that in Lisbon, in 1755, the crowds were going to enjoy themselves in seeing a betrothed Je\ and Jewess being burnt at the same stake. Just as the light was being ap- plied to the pile the terrible earthquake took place, in which 50,000 perished in a few minutes. The pile was unlit, and the couple were saved. It seems scarcely necessary to say what Russia has recently done. A French historian (Louis Blanc) says that the massacres of the French revolution were a remembrance of the St. Bartholomew massacles. In the same manner the Russian reverses at the hands of the Japanese were a vivid reminder of the awful atrocities perpetrated on the Jewish population at Kishnieff, and other places in South Russia just previously by the Russians. And as for Zionism, how can it succeed against Russian and German designs in Asia Minor? Godless Zionism will not succeed, but Zionism with God in it will plant trees that will never ba uprooted. Go back to Zionism when first turned from hope to fact. Butter was Israel's lot in Egypt, but it would have been bitterer still on-the shores of the Red Sea if there had been no God in their camp. How hopeless they would have been in the wilderness without. God: and how helpless to fight the nations on their way to the Jordan, or to storm the walls of Jeri.ch.o, and dispossess the Cana:mite by their own arm alone. But the Jew is no better off to-day, apart from. the Ahnighty; he is a fugi- tive. But with God in the camp. th.e Jew is the future king of the earth. Russia to-day has a monastery on the Mount of OHves, and it is generally believed to be but a basis for a fortress, and that its monks are simply dis- guised Russian soldiers. 'Can human Zionism cope with this? Some years ago there was erected near Moscow a counterpart of Jeru- salem and its surroundings. The Russians were taught to pray for the extermination of those who hold these sacred places thus vivdiy placed in miniature before their eyes. The arm of the Jew cannot withstand these Gentile aspirations. It will be dark for the Jew—darker than it. has ever been, before the Light of the World will shine upon Zion's wa.Hs. But it may be said it does not matter so much no\v about Russia: wh.-)t: about Ger- many. In the next article, if the Lord of the Jews permits, we may see her interest in Zioa.

Child Negiect Sequel. I
Child Negiect Sequel. I THREE DEATHS IN SIX rE.Ev" I 1-_rl l', 'Á ._ndn. I Maggie L!.oyd, aged 2s years, the daughter of j Maggie Lloyd, 2 years, the daughter ofl Louis Lloyd and his wife, of Thomas Street, died at the Workhouse Inurmai'y on Thurs- day. Deceased's parents were recently charged at the Police Court, at the instance of the N.S.P.C.C., for neglecting their children, who were removed to the Workhouse by the In- spector. The male prisoner was discharged and the mother committed to prison for a month. Wliilst she w.as undergoing this sen- tence one of the children, Horace, aged four years, died, but. the doctor's evidence at the. inquest was that death was due to bronchitis dnd whooping cough, and the jury found that there was insunlcient evidence to prove cul- pable negligence .against the parents. THE INQUEST. PARENTS CENSURED. Mr. W. W. Brodie conducted an inquest on the body at the Workhouse 'on Saturday. Mr. Martin R. Richards represented the N.S.P.C.C. Louis Lloyd, lather of the deceased, gave evidence of identification, and said that prior to her removal to the Workhouse Infirmary deceased lived with him at Old Manchester House. Inspector Idris Jones of the N.S.P.C.C., de- posed tliat he had had the deceased under ob- servation since May last. When he called en January 14th the child was sitting on a box near the fire. It was very delicate, and lie advised the mother to send for the doctor. which she promised to do. The children were clean. Ha called again on January 18th, and found no improvement in the condition of the child. He asked the mother whether she had sent for the doctor, and she replied in the negative. Deceased was apparently clean when lie saw her on January 25, but seemed to be worse. The mother was smelling of I beer, and said all her children were like that when they were small, and they wonid soon be alright. He made another visit on Feb. 2nd. when he saw the deceased in bed with I another child. She appeared to be very dirty :'nd apparently had not. been washed for some time. The woman wa.ssit.ting down in a I drunken condition with a child'in her arms. I Eventually, lie obtained a magistrate's order, and removed the children to the Workhouse I Infirmary, where they were attended to by Dr Evans. He subsequently saw the father, who told him that he had done his best, and that lie had told his wife to call in a doctor a fort- night previously. He also stated that he took all the money home. In his (witness's) opinion there had been neglect on the part of the parents in not calling in a doctor earlier. The Coroner: Do you think that neglect I was serious?—Yes, I do. The children were in such a state that a doctor should have been called in. Was the sleeping accommodation at the house satisfactory?—No; there was only one bed. Continuing, witness said that -from May, 1909, to February, 1910, there was a gradual improvement in the condition of the home and the cleanliness of the children, but on the oc- casion of the last visit they were in a bad state. The children were scantily dressed, and there was not sumcient sleeping accommoda- tion. The Coroner said that representations had been made to him by Mr Martin R. Richards, solicitor to the N.S.P.C.C., that an inquiry should be made into the deaih of the de- ceased. Seeing that the third child had died within six weeks, and that the mother had been convicted for neglecting her children, it appeared to him that the- recommendation was justified. He would ask Mr. Richards, if he had any evidence to submit, to ask the witnesses any questions. Cross-examined by Mr. Richards, witness said that he had the children under observa- tion since May, 1907. The parents were charged at the instance of the Society in May, 1909, and were bound over on probation for two years, and ordered to pay the costs. He called at the house practically every week from May until February 2nd, and tendered every advice to Mrs. Lloyd as to the cleanli- ness of her home, and advised her to procure extra, bedding and better accommodation. The children became ill in January, and on the last two occasions he called at the house lie particularly impressed upon Mrs. Lloyd the advisability of sending for a doctor. The children were obviously bad, and any woman should have kno\vn, without any advice, that they were dying. One child was dead at that time, and the mother was drunk. He subse- quently took proceedings against the parents and Mrs. Lloyd was .convicted and sent to prison for one month in the second division. The Coroner: Was the deceased one of the children in respect of which she was charged? Witness: Yes. Dr. Evan Evans said that as medical atten- dant to the Workhouse he attended to the de- ceased to the time of her death, which oc- curred on the 7th. When he first examined her she was very emaciated, weighing 131bs. 2oxs., the average weight being 271bs. 2oxs. She had small sores on the right side of the head, which was dirty and verminous. She also suffered from whooping cough. Her temperature was normal. There was a slight improvem.en.t in the deceased's health for a period of three weeks after her admission to the Infirmary. The attacks of coughing were very bad. Bronchitis then developed, and the temperature increased. There were signs of neglect, and deceased was badly nourished. It would have been well if a medical man had been called in earlier. A child in that con- dition would not be able to battle with the disease like a child in ;j normal state of health. The previous condition would, more or less, have accelerated death. At the time he first saw the children, after their removal to the Woi'khouse, Horace was in a more serious condition than the deceased. In reply to Mr. Richards, witness said the deceased was obviously in a weak state when brought to the Inrirmary. Even if the parents did not know that tlie' child suffered from whooping cough they should have known that there was something evidently wrong. The fact that the child gained four to five ounces in weight during the fortnight it had been in the Innrmary suggested that the feed- ing was better. He did not say the child had been starved, but the food was unsuitable. There was evidence of mal-nutrition. which might have been caused through, neglect or bad feed ills'. Louis Lloyd, father of the deceased, said he gave his wife an average of <S1 a, week. He had also to pay some debts, amounting to about ten shillin.a's a week. Two or three pints of milk were purchased daily. He was not told by his wife that the Inspector had advised her to call in a doctor. He noticed that the deceased was umvell for some time before her removal to the Workhouse. She had always been delicate, but at the time the doctor called she was suffering from another attack of whooping cough. He did not think at the time that it was necessary to get a doc- tor to see her. Witness informed the Inspec- tor that he had asked his wife to get a doctor for Horace, but not for the deceased. Whoop- ing cough was very common at the time in the neighbourhood, but. in the majority of cases a. doctor was not called in. Several deaths occurred from it. Margaret Lloyd, wife of the last witness, de- nied that the Inspector had advised her to call in a doctor. The Coroner: Are you sure of that? Witness: Yes. Continuing, witness said that deceased ap- peared to be in better health than the other children. She was rather delicate from birth. The Coroner said it was quite clear that there had been want of proper care, which justified an inquiry into the circumstances. Three of the children had died under the cir- cumstances related to the court, which also showed that a c.areful investigation was neees-- sary. The jury returned a verdict that deatli was' due to natural causes, and expressed appre- ciation of the manner in which Inspector' Idris Jones had investigated the case, and the fair way in which he had given his evidence. They also desired the Coroner to censure the' parents. The Coroner (addressing the parents) said the jury had not found that the neglect had' been sufficient to make them criminal) y re- sponsible for the death of the child, but they had found that there had been neglect on the part of both of them. In view of the fact that three of their children had died, lie hoped' they would take seriously to heart what tha jury had requested them to do, and that they would take care that in respect of thetr other children there would be no possibility of anv such charge being taken against them in; future.
Roman Cathotsc School '-0-
Roman Cathotsc School '-0- SCALES DISCARDED: HEAVY COST TO' THE RATEPAYERS. At a meeting of the Education Committee on Thursday night, Mr. H. 1). R.ees presiding, the following letter was read from the managers of the Roman Catholic School:— St. Mary's R.C. School, Uanelly, March 12th, 1910. Dear Sir,—I a.m. instructed by the mana- gers of the above-named school to write to you with reference to a complaint made and brought forward by Mr. H. D. Rees at a meeting of the school managers held on Tuesday, March 8th. The complaint was that a screen was found in the coal cellar. This interesting event took place in the summer months, when the cellar is not used. The coal cellar was well cleaned. Botli the scales and screen were placed there for safe keeping. The scales are be* lieved to be the only unbroken ones in the whole of the LIatielly schools. The screen was also in first-class condition. The scales have been removed without the consent cf the managers. Will you kindly give this letter the same publicity to the members of the Llanelly Education Committee that you gave to youB' views as to where the screen was found. Yours truly, G. J. ISAAC, Managers' Secretary.- The Chairman said that he and the Vice- chairman attended a meeting of the managers because the Board of Education had written to that Committee very strongly with reference- to the grants. The managers of the school made a complaint at. the meeting that suffi- cient attention was not being given bv the Committee to the supply of stationerv, gas mantles, etc. With regard to the stationery;. lie challenged any member to state that they. did not 'supply them with s'umeient. but. the mantles, -unfortunately, went out of stock in the Surveyor's department, and they had to place a special order, which necessitated some delay. He asked the chairman of the meeting; why they had broken and discarded the scales which that Committee had specially ordered for the school for the purpose of carrying out the medical inspection of school children. The scales and indicator were found in the coal-house, the indicator having been broken. He had not mentioned the matter previously to ihat Committee, neither did he- contemplate doing so. The Committee should,. however, get some explanation, because they had had to pay heavily for the scales. The fact that there was no coal in the coal-house did'not explain why the indicator had beeo broken. They also had occasion to bring- the- scales to the Clerk's o.mce for safety. Mr. Bramwell Jones: They give further evi* dence that the scales are as good as those in any other school in the town. The Chairman: The indicator was not. The Clerk: The scales of all the schools i0 town are intact. Mr. Bra.'nwell Jones: Therefore, that letter is wrong. The Clerk: Yes. Mr. Vivian: Was the indicator broken or simply unscrewed.' The Chairman: My impression was that it was snapped. That was the reason why I took the matter up; otherwise we would not have- had occasion to take it away. I may say that the priest told me that when the mediJal in* spection takes place at the school lie has been good enough to place at, the disposal of the inspector his own private room. The nn.tter then dropped.
Did They Get Tipsy?
Did They Get Tipsy? LICENSED VICTUALLERS' OUTING. CLAIM AT THE COUNTY COURt. At the County Court en Monday the Llanelly Licensed Victuallers' Association made 'i claim. against Richard Da.vies, George and Dragon, in respect of three tickets. Mr. H. Hayton Will-iams appeared for the' defence. Aneurin Philliyjs, Albion Inn, said he was authorised to proceed gainst Mr. Da vies in respect of the three tickets, of the value of 31s. 6d. received for the annual onting. Cross-examined by Mr. Williams, witness said that according to the minutes of the As- sociation, Mr. Rees, one of the committeemen, was himself to sue for the money or pay it himself. Morgan Rees, White Hall Inn, said he ga.v9' three tickets to the defendant to sell at 10s 6d each, and he never received the money. His Honour: What was the outing for? To get tipsy somewhere? (laughter) Did you go by a motor car or by train ? Witness: We went by train, and had dinner. His Honour: The 10s. 6d. would cover your' whiskies and sodas (laughter). Witness added that Mr. Da vies required th& tickets for himself, his wife, and son. He did' not go to the outing. His Honour: So Mr. Davies did not get th& benefit of it. Witness: We had to pay the caterer who re- ceived the money for nve more than sat down. Mr. Davies subsequently said he had sold the tickets to representatives of certain fh'ms, and tlia.t he would let us have the money when he" received it.. Philip Williams, Centre Hotel, said repeated applications ware made for the money. On lucre than one occasion Mr. Davies said he had sold the tickets. His. Honour: Why should he not pay EeeS or the Association George Davies, the defendant said he ha.c! not sold the tickets because he had been ill* The tickets were in the house. Mr. Rees (to witness): Did you not say. that I .yüu wanted three tickets for yourself? Witness: No. I have told them many;. months ago that I have not sold then). Mr. Rees: You are on your oath. His Honour: You are both on oath. I tIO not know which of you is the perverter of tM truth. Why did you not return the tickets? Witness: I was ill at the time. His Honour: I do not believe you had tM tickets to sell. I am sorry I cannot believe* your story I must give verdict for the plaia' tiff, with costs.
