An unusual spectacle was seen in Liverpool on Friday, when ft crowd, numbering several hundred persona, besieged a wine merchant's shop, endeavouring to buy bottles of whiskey. Ib has been circulated in the neighbourhood the evening before that whiskey would be on sale in this shop the day following, at 9s. a bottle, and at half-past ten quite a crowd of women assembled outside the shop, where, after some time, they grew to such numbers as to cause a policeman, with the help of a detective, to form them up in queues. When the shop opened at 12 it was almost stormed by the waiting crowd, and finally the shops had to be closed on those admitted, and the crowd re-formed. The women were of a motley description, and most of the women had babies in their arms. The average ajnount taken was between two and three bottles. About 800 women waited until 2-30 Mfthe off ghance of- the shop re-opening.^
I Unfortunate Frowns. Whatever eventuates from the dramatic, development of affairs in Germany, iL serves to emphrusizet,he urgent importance of preparing for peace." We do not mean by that only such manifestations of IhanLsgmng as the cessation of hostilities will naturally inspire, but also the realisation of the new responsibilities which such a condition will place upon all who care for the future welfare j of our land, Our greatest problems in this! respect will assuredly centre round the readjustment of our economic and social life, and any thoughtful consideration of the influences underlying industrial unrest brings us, sooner or later, to the question of housing. A.s several different investigators have pointed out, the spirit of dissatisfaction among the wage-earners is generally bred amidst un- attractive social surroundings, and if we mean to apply a radical cure we must begin with the remedying of the workers' domestic con- ditions. Housing reform, therefore, ought to be one of the first, if not actually the first problem whichrre intend to tackle as part of our policy of reconstruction, and, if it is to be j tackled successfully, in no niggardly spirit, j The Local Government Board, we believe, now realise that, whatever mAy be our theories of economic perfection, it is useless to expect, in j practice, much likelihood of an "economic" rent being produced from municipal houses for some years after the war. Their construction, consequently, must be approached on entirely ot her lines than that which would pormally be adopted by the speculative builder. The obj?et is not so much to earn profits or dividends as to raise the standard of social comfort of the wage-earning classes, in the interest of the peace and happiness of the nation at large, and the advantage thus gained must be paid for, so far as the margin of monetary loss goes, by the nation and the municipality. The State's share of this burden, under the Local Government Board scheme, is 75 per cent. of the expenditure, the balance being borne Wy the municipality, though, should this involve more than a penny rate, Whitehall will "deal very generously with the local authori- "ties." As a financial apportionment it must be accepted, wa thmk, as reasonable enough. But, on the general principle of the Government's attitude to any bold policy of reconstruction, we are bound to say it is far from reassuring to hear of Mr. Hayes Fisher telling a conference of northern civic authori- ties that 11 whenever he approached the Chancellor of the Exchequer on this question "cf housing he was frowned at." We know, of course, it is the disposition of the Treasury j to scowl at the heads of the spending depart- ments when they come abegging, and this is I entirely consistent with what Mr. Gladstone laid down as the duty of the Exchequer when he said that No Chancellor is worth his salt "who makes his own popularity either his "first consideration or any consideration at all "in administering the public purse." But what is very far from consistent or desirable is that while official enthusiasm for urgent reconstruction measures of this sort are met with a chilly symbol of disapproval (if Mr- Hayes Fisher's impression is correct), apparently the most extravagant schemes of building, urged on very dubious grounds of utility by the War Office, as for example the now notorious motor repair works near Slough, are sanctioned without any regard to cost. In a well-controlled housing scheme,' at any rate, the money, if it brings no immediate "economic" return, will reap its due reward in other and by no means less important ways, and we should be sorry, indeed, to think that for such a policy as this the Treasury has no more sympathy than is expressible in a frown. If the Government want us to make better tillage of, the new lands they must not grudge the necessary manure. The Welsh University Seat. We understand the feeling is growing in educational and political circles in the Princip- ality that no more appropriate choice could be made for the first ParIiamentarJ representative of the Welsh University than Mr. J. Herbert Lewis, M.P. There are a number of "prospective candidates in the field,-we really forget how many,—but we are sure none of them would challenge the statement that no man has done more, and few have done as much, to promote the interests not only of the University, but of Welsh education generally as the present member for Flintshire, whose official position at the Board of Education still further em- phasises the seemline6s of his selection for an academic seat. Arrangements for the publi- cation of the University register are not quite as far forward as those in the county and borough oonstituencies;in fact, we believe that inquiries are only now being made for printing tenders,—-but there need be little do. lay when once the work is put in hand, and by that time probably opinion rJ sufficiently have, cryigtalised to leave 1 doubt that, even if Mr. Lewis is not to receive the well- deserved compliment of an unopposed return, opposition will hardly be of a serious nature. Flintshire pf cogm, will rggfet-ji* loea of so capable a representative in the House of Commons, but there should be little difficulty in selecting a successor. The abolition of the Flint Boroughs as a separate electoral area marks Major T. H. Parry, M.P., out as the strongest claimant to the reversion of the county seat, 1 A Striking Contrast. While the Advisory Com- mittee attached to the Employ- ment £ Txchange at Oswestry can find nothing to do similiar bodies in other towns are, wnh greater enterprise, getting on with the solu- tion of the many problems which Bite urgently waiting attention in connection with' demobil- ization. At Shrewsbury, for example, the Committee, over which Air. R. E. Jones pre- sides, was, la.st week, able to give a. good ac- count of its labours. It has not yet readied the stage arrived at at Oswestry of having its constitution complete,—the delay being due to the Shropshire County Pensions Committ-ee whose unfortunate lethargy, we hope, has by this time been brought to the notice of Mr. Hodge—but it is satisfactory to learn that there was hardly an employer in that "borough to whom the Exchange had not sent an employee. This is a no table prac- tical record, but the possibilities of such an organisation are not confined to mere official routine. As the Wrexham Local Advisory j Committee, under Mr. A. Seymour Jones's broad-visioned lead, point out in a. very sug- gestive report just issued, it is important, too, that no opportunity be lost of under- standing the psychology of ex-service men if (successful placing is to be effected. There is but one way to accomplish these desider- "ata, and that is by the cultivation of easy 12ersonal ko-aelt, witti, from the usually cold atmosphere of bureaucracy." Nothing truer could be said, and we have large hopes of the successful work of a body which places this principle before it as an in- spiration, and the Oswestry Committee could not do better than make the serious consider- ation of the Wrexham report the subject for their next meeting. We can assure them it would prove a wholesome education. ■ ■■■■

Ellesmere Foal Show and SaleJ On Thursday week, at Ellesmere Smithfielri, ] Messrs. Thorn and Bee sell conducted the seventh annual Ellesmere District Foal Show and Sale, when they were faivoured with a r&cord arery of 150 shirt foa!»—yearlings, two and three-year-1 olds. L7pvmrds of £ 60 was offered. in prize money, and it was evident that the very liberal >priro list undoubtedly drew some of the beet shire men in the adjoining districts, and one of the beet entries was catalogued, which will be very difficult to be beeftesn by any 38le in the oounsry. The quality of the ahi.-ft throughout was excellent, although it must- be mentioned that the xreat ob<>w of,.olii.re foals were not of that robust and well-grown nature we bave seen in former yeam-doubtless owing to the large amount of, work the mart* have been subjected to on the farm*. Notwithatandinjr the railway disturbance, which prevented a few of the best entriee being forward, a very large ooneoutae of buyers and agrtculiurista and shire men from the surrounding1 counties. North Wates, Norfolk, Suffolk, Monmouth and the Fylde district of Lanoaehire, were present, and a great trade was experienced. This important aannal fixture is now looked forward to. and extraordinary interest was centred in the judging, especially when the ehire foals came out for ion, and after great difficulty the judges awarded the championship of the sale to Mr. William Jones, Glanrafon, .1 the sal e to Mr. W41iam Jone?e Uy foal by UamTModwet, for a beautiful filly foal by Knookin Redlynch," which realised 18.

Sir Hubert Parry, Bart., the well-known composer, died on Monday a.t his Sussex home, Knights Croft, Rustington. In a paper read at the annual meeting of the Municipal Waterworks Association at Birmingham, last week (at which Government control of the nation's water supplies was urged), Mr. J. Parry, chief engineer of, the Liverpool Waterworks, dealing with afforesta- tion, said the war, among other loomi, had aroused the country to a full realisation of the serious eonsequenoes of the neglect of forestry. The Liverpool Corporation had planted 3,600,000 trees en 1,383 acres. He gave par- ticulars of the results obtained and the con- clusions arrived at..

I PERSONAL. Congratulations to Mr. J. F. Edisbnry, of Wrexham, who attains his eighty-first birth- day on Sunday next, Oct. 13, Mr. W. M. Hughes, Premier of Australia, was confined to bed, last week, suffering irom a slight return of influenza. Mr. Clement Shorter says in the Sphere that Mr. Harold Spendr8 H, Lif of Mr. L'oyd George is being withheld, at the Prime Minister's request, until victory is assdred. His Honour Judge Bryn Roberts, while motoring to I Janrwst, on Friday, to attend the I County Court, caught cold, and is at present confined to his house. The marriage took place on Wednesday at Hanwood Church, by the Rev. J. C. M. Chittv, rector, between William Blakeway Phillips, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Blakeway Phillips, I of Hanwood, and Margaret Kate, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ellis, of the Bank, Hanwood. The death is reported in action on Sept. 27 I of Lieut. Wm. Herbert Gladstone, Coldstream Guards, aged 30. fourth and youngest son of the Rev. Stephen" Gladstone, Manley Hall, I Helsby. Cheshire, and formerly- Rector: of Hawarden. At a. meeting of the Edinburgh Central Liberal Association, last week, Mr. Charloa E. Price, M.P., was unanimously adopted as prospective Liberal candidate for the Division. Mr. Price gave an address, and Cordially ac- cepted the invitation. The marriage was quietly solemnised on Tuesday week, at Notre 'Dame de France,' London, of Lieut. Charles Armand Marie Jullien, d.u Regiment d'Artillerie, French Army, to Miss Joan Meredyth Chichele Plow- den (second daughter of Sir Henry and Lady Plowden). A-marriage has been arranged, and will shortly take place, between Mr. Henry Beau. clerk Howe, eldest son of the late Thomas Ed. Howe, and Ismay Nesta, second daughter of Mr. E. S. Mostyn Pryce, of Gunley. Mr. Howe's mother was the daughter of Aubrey William Beauclerk, M.P., of Ardglass, and she was a great granddaughter of Mr. Toph-m Beauclerk and Lady Diana Spencer, daughter of the third Duke of Marlborough. The King has promoted Lieut.-General Sir Francis Lloyd, K.C.B., C.V.O., D.S.O., who has relinquished the Command of the London District, to be a Knight Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order. Sir Francis has been placed on the committee appointed by the War Cabinet to consider the regulations deal- ing with the punishment of women suffering from venereal diseases who have intercourse with members of H.M. forces and what modi- fications, if any, should be made in them. Capt. Lord Gerald Grosvenor, Scots Guards, has arrived in this country after being a prisoner in Germany and then intern- ed in Holland. lord Gerald lives at Ash Grange, Whitchurch, and was well-known be- fore the war in the Cheshire hunting field. He is a son of the first Duke of Westminster, and an uncle of the present Duke. He was wounded and taken prisoner early in the war j and his release from Germany and transfer to Holland happened in March last. Lord Gerald served also, and was wounded, in the South African war, and was mentioned in des- patches. The infant daughter of Captain and Mrs. Francis W. Barker, was christened at St. Dinoth's Church, Bangor-Is-y-coed, on Sun- day, September 29. Rev. R. Paterson Morgan officiated, and the child received the names of Dephne, Eveline, Clemency, and her ttod mothers were Lady Eveline Maude and Mrs. B. H. Piercy, and her two uncles, Major Maurice Ormrod, 60th Rifles, B.B.F., usd Capt. Evelyn Barker, M.C., 60tb Rifles, were her godfathers. Owing to the unavoidable ab- sence of the godparents, Miss Ormrod,. of Pen-y-Wi, and Mi. Oliver Ormrod, stood proxy. Those present at the church included Mrs. Charles Owen, Mrs. Rayner and Master Rayner, Mrs. Pitcairn Campbell and Miss Ann Campbell, Mrs. MacAlpine and the Misses MacAlpine, Mrs, Chaplin and Miss and Master Chaplin. The death occurred last week, after a short illness, at Mereworth Castle, Kent, of Lord Falmouth, who, after an active military car- eer, retired from the army in 1902 as & major- general, and devoted himself largely to the training of racehorses. In 1886 he married the Hon. Kathleen Douglas-Pennant, daugh- ter of the second Lord Penrhyn. He is suc- ceeded by his eldest son, the Hon. Evelyn Hugh John Boscawen, Royal Air Force. Two other sons have been killed in the war. It is stated that the only bet Lord Falmouth ever made was f-n* for an even sixpence; but he won the Two Thousand Guineas with Clarissi., mus in 1915 and the Thousand Guineas with Quintessence in 1903. The King was repre^ sen ted at the fubcral on Saturday by Col. gir Douglas Dawson and queen Alexandra by Lieut.-Col. F. Hardy, and among others pres- ent were the Hon. Alice Douglas-Pennant, the Hon. Hilda Douglas-Pennant, the Hon. Violet Douglas-Pennant, Lord and Lady Pen- rhyn, Col. and Mrs. Mostyn, Sir Hy. McKin- non. A memorial service was conducted at St. James's, Piccadilly, by which Preb.
