PORTER'S THEFTS. LLANELLY YOUTH FINED FOR STEALING SPOONS. Henry Sutton, Field House. St. Peter's, Llanelly, was charged on remand at the Llanelly Police Court, on Wednesday with stealing two dozen electro-plated spoons, a quantity of chocolates and soap, and a tie, the property of the G.W.R. Company. Mr. T. R. Ludford, who appeared for the prosecution, said that the defendant was a goods porter, 22 years of age. He did not wish to paint the case blacker tha n it was. but he was bound to point out that cases of employes thieving from their employers whq paid them weekly wages, were fre- quently occurring. Detective Webber stated that he saw the defendant at the Llanelly goods station on May 2nd, and informed him that he was making inquiries about goods that he (de- fendant) had recently loaded, and which had been tampered with. Defendant aeked, "What do you mean?" Lnd witness replied. 4, Some spoons; and I have reason to believe you know something about them." Defen- dant then said, "I took them; I am sorry I did it. If you come with me you can have them. They are at 21, Swansea-road." When defendant placed his overcoat on witness asked, What have you got in your pockets?" and he replied, "There are two packets of powder there. I picked them up on. the 'deck' this morning." They pro- ceeded to 21, Swansea-rood, from which house defendant brought out two packets of Nevada silver spoons. Inspector Nicholas said that in his reply to the charge defendant said, This is the first time for me to steal anything, and it will be the last." Defendant, who pleaded guilty, said he had previously borne a good character. Mr. J. Wesley Jones, dentist, gave the do, fendant an excellent character. Defendant was fined £2

SUNDAY REFRESHMENTS. I r TWO FINES AND ONE ADJOURNMENT I AT LLANELLY. Morlais Jones, Penrheol, Gorseinon; I W. George, Bryn-road, Upper Loughor, and Richard Day, of the s.s. Cedarwood, North Dock, were summoned at the Llanelly Police Court on Wednesday for falsely representing themselves to be boria-nde travellers at the Prince of Wales Inn, Llanelly, on April 20th. Ben Davies, licensee, said that the defendants stated they were from Gor- seinon, and had come to the town on business. They added that P.C. Evans had recommended them to call at the Prince of Wales 'Inn for refreshments, and on the strength of their statements he served them. Supt. S. Jones explained that thb summons against Day had not been served. Jones and George, who pleaded guilty, were fined 10s. and costs. Daniel Roberts, The Mill, Ponty- berem, was summoned for a similar offence at the Red Lion Inn, Llannon, on April 20th. Defendant, who pleaded not guilty, applied for an adjournment for a fort- night, which was granted.
SUNDAY POSTAL DELIVERIES I AMMANFORD COUNCIL FAIL TO GET SATISFACTION. With reference to the Sunday delivery ok letters for which the Ammanford Urban Council have asked the Post- master-General, a letter has been re- ceived stating that applications for the establishment of Sunday deliveries could be entertained only if satisfactory evidence could be afforded that the town was unanimous in desiring it. If the Council was prepared to furnish an assurance to this effect further inquiry would be made into the matter. Mr. B. R. Evans said the only way the assurance could be given was by taking a petition around. The Council might be one way, and the majority outside the other way. Mr. D. G. Davies suggested public meetings should be held at four differ- ent centres. Mr. Hewlett remembered when this question came on ten years ago, he himself got a petition and sent it up to thu Postmaster-General and the reply he got was that a petition was not good enough, but if the Council would pass it then the authority would sanc- tion a delivery of letters on Sunday. Now here was a gentleman who threw that back in their faces, and said the Council passing it was no good at all. One began to wonder where thev were. He thought the best reply would be to ask the Postmaster-General what means he would take if the Council were not, the people's representatives. Mr. John Morgan suggested they wait until the Bill was brought in Parliament dealing with Sunday labour. No doubt it wou ld pa." very s(,on. It was decided to hold public meet- ings, to be arranged by the chairman and clerk.
AMMANFORD RATES. I At the Ammanford Urban Council I meeting on Wednesday evening, the Finance Committee recommended a general district rate be levied for the half-year of 2s. 7d. in the jB, ajid one i,)(, -i N-In the t for water. This, it was stated, was 2d. in the £ less than the previous half-year, but the poor rate had gone up 2d., so that really the total rate remained the same.
PARLIAMENT. I CHANCELLOR AND MR. HEALY'S I ATTACK. ANCRY SCENE. IRISH MEMBER ADVISED TO RE- STRAIN HIMSELF. I (Special to the Leader.") I HOUSE OF COM- I HOUSE OF COMMONS, Thursday. I The Speaker took the chair at noon. A new Writ was ordered to be issued for the election of a member for the Altrincham Division of Cheshire, in the room of Mr. Kebty-Fletcher, I resigned. Congo Annexation. Sir J. D. Rees asked whether the op- position of the Congo Reform Associa- tion had been an obstacle to the formal and long-delayed recognition by Great Britain of Belgium's already accom- plished annexation of the Congo. Sir Edward Grey said the question of recognising the annexation of the Congo by the Belgian Government had been considered by the Government entirely on its merits. Telephone Rates. Mr. Goldman asked when the Post- master-General proposed to announce the revised scale of telephone rates. Captain Norton said his right hon. friend hoped to be able to make an an- nouncement on the subject before the end of June. (Hear, hear.) Aeroplaning to India. Sir J. D. Rees asked the Prime Min- ister whether arrangements were being made for an aeroplane flight from Eng- land to India in October, and whether H.M. Government, or the Government of India, or both Governments, were in any way assisting this project. Mr. E. S. Montagu replied that the Secretary of State for Indm had seen an aunou neement in the Press regarding the proposed flight. The answer to the last part of the question was in the negative. Sir Stuart Samuel's Penalties. The Attorney-General handed in a Bill indemnifying Sir Stuart Samuel, the Member for Whitechapel, against the penalties he unwittingly incurred by voting in the House while his firm stood in a contractual capacity to the Indian Government. It was formally read a first time. Empire Questions. On the motion that the House ad- journ for the Whitsun recess until May 27th, Mr. Page-Croft raised the ques- tion of Imperial Federation. He urged that the Imperial Conference should he made a permanent advisory council, and hoped eventually to see an Imperial Par- liament established for dealing with all Imperial questions. He regretted so many emigrants from the United Kingdom were going to foreign countries, and suggested they should be taxed JM a head, the money thus obtained to be used to divert emi- gration, especially of single women, to our Dominions. Mr. Harcourt, the Colonial Secretary, said he hoped the conclusions of the Royal Commission on the trade and commerce of the Empire would be avail- able in time for the next Imperial Con- ference, which in the natural course would assemble before this Parliament expired. Among the suggestions the Commission was considering was one of an Imperial development fund, and it was also proposed that efforts should be mad o, to secure a greater uniformity of weights and measures and coinage throughout the Empire. There was now stationed in each of the self-governing Dominions a Trade Commissioner whose duty it was to advise merchants and manufacturers at home in regard to trade openings, and especially to watch the movements of the foreign competi- tors. A great deal had been done to divert the stream of emigration to the Colo- nies. whereas eight years ago only fifty- five per cent. of the emigrants from the United Kingdom went to the Dominions, last year the percentage was eighty-two. For the present he thought enough had been done to encourage emigration within the Empire. As for the suggestion of an Imperial Council, there were difficulties in the way of realisation of that proposal. In the matter of defence, however, the Govern- ment already consulted the Dominions. Mr. T. Healy questioned the accuracy of the Treasury estimate as to amount that would be required from Ireland in connection with new and additional taxes imposed by the 1909 Budget. Mr. Noel Buxton urged the need of better conditions for agricultural labourers, The Chancellor. Mr. Lloyd George agreed that argi- cultural labourers were a miserably paid class. The conditions under which many of them lived was a perfect scan- dal. The matter should bo dealt with from a nat.onal point of view. He would like to see real co-operation be- tween all parties for the purpose of re- generating rural life. The matter was now engaging the attention of the Government, which had already been placed in possession of invaluable facts. As for Mr. Healy's complaint, it merely meant that the Treasury had under- estimated the wealth of Ireland. Was that a matter for Nationalist members to regrets' It was a disgraceful thing that in order to please his friends in Ireland the hon. gentleman should use his position to make unjustifiable at- tacks upon Government officials, accus- ing them of fraud. After an angry scene, during which the Chancellov advised Mr. Healy to restrain himself, Mr. Lloyd George said that Ireland got over three millions out of the 1909 Budget in return for an additional revenue of a little over one million. If the whole truth of the matter were told by Mr. Healy, he would not be afraid of the judgment of the hon. gentleman's countrymen. Mr. W. O'Brien speaking in thun- derous tones, protested against the Chancellor's ill-conditioned speech. (Ministerial cheers and cries' of "Oh.") He alleged that the Government had broken their promises to Ireland to the extent of a million a year. For further refort see Next Edition.) SIR STUART SAMUEL. I ACTION HEARD IN THE KING'S I BENCH DIVISION. The action was heard in the King's Bench Division to-dav of Forbes versus Samuel, to recover penalties under a penal statute, the defcndnat being Sir Stuart Samuel, M.P. for Whitechapel. At the outset counsel for Sir Stuart S'amuel u bmitted that the action \a8J not maintainable. He argued that the former should R.revioJy fde mwrb in court before the case could be heard, and this course had not been adopted in the present case. Counsel for the informer then quoted authorities against this contention. Defendant's counsel, dealing with the penalties under the Act, said it pro- vided that there was liability to a fine of £ 500 for every day a disqualified person should sit or vote in the House of Common's. Any person or persons could sue for the same, and the money could be recovered by persons so suing, with full costs of the suit. The effect of the Act was to leave a common informer who desired to maintain his action.

Both vessels were damaged. H.M. dstroyer Seal has sus- tained damage through colliding with the quay. I Steampipe Burst. I A Liverpool telegram states that two men have since died from injuries sus- tained through the bursting of a st0am- pipe yesterday aboard the Royal George, which is undergoing repairs at Cammell, Laird's Yard at Birkenhead. Harry Fitzgerald, of Rockferry, suc- sumbed to his injurjes few hours after I the accident, and James Waltham, of Birkenhead, another victim, diedl i hortly afterwards. Post Office Secrecy. I At Edinburgh City Police Court to- day Albert Edward Underwood, was round guilty of using an office in Brunswick-road for football betting. The magisti-ate imposed a modified penalty of t50 or thirty days' imprison- ment. Defendant asked for mitigation on the ground that betting was only constructively an offence, and that had the Post Office secrecy been maintained and the envelopes not opened he could not have been found guilty. It was in- timated that there will be an appeal. I Authoress' Death. I I A verdict of death from drowning was returned at the inquest at Reigate to-day on Alice Maud Meadows, authoress, whose body was found in a brook at Earlswood Asylum Grounds on Monday. Sidney Meadows (brother) I said his sister was unmarried. She had had travelled extensively and had evinced no disposition to take her life, and witness stated that deceased's dog was heard howling and deceased was seen in the brook. A doctor said the exertion in reaching the dog in the water might have affected the heart. I Contempt of Court. The Divisional Court to-day disposed of a case in which a week ago counsel moved for a rule nisi directed to Dr. Wharry, of Whitstone Head, near Holsworthy, calling upon him to show <:a[!s<)- wh.f}5lwllld not be committed for contemut of court. Civil proceed- ings had commenced in connection with the destruction by fire of a tea pavilion in Kew Gardens, for which two suf- fragettes—Miss Olive Wharrv and Miss Ida Inkley-ivere convicted, and when a solicitor's clerk went to serve a writ in the action on Miss Wharry at her father's home, it was alleged that he was assaulted and chased out ,f f,]-.e grounds. The court fined Dr. Wharry £ 50 and costs, and ordered him to re- main in custody until the fine was paid. Dr. Wharry left the court in charge of an officer. Before the court rose for luncheon, Dr. Wharry paid the money.
STRANGE DEATH. I LLANCADOCK MAN SAID TO HAVE TAKEN POISON. The death occurred about 12.30 on Thursday of Mr. Daniel Price, builder and contractor, of Llangadock. Mr. Price is alleged to have taken a dose of strychnine in a glass of beer. Deceased was in the habit of carrying the poison in his pocket, having bought the same with the object of killing moles. He died in the presence of his wife and a man named Davies, and it is stated that he said, "I've now killed the mole, and taken a little myself." Mr. Price carried on an extensive business as a contractor and, in, his time, had employed a large number of workmen. He was a noted and success- ful breeder of Welsh pedigree-, mountain ponies. He was 55 years of age. An inquest will be held.

> SUFFRAGISTS. ACCUSED AGAIN BROUGHT BEFORE THE MACISTRATE. "YOUNC HOT BLOODS." The conspiracy charge against suffra- gettes was resumed at Bow-street to- day, the accused being Flora Drum- mond, Annie Kenny, Harriet Roberta Kerr, Agnes Lake, Rachel Barrett, Laura Geraldine Lennox, Beatrice Ellen Sanders and JEdny Godwin Clayton, an analytical chemist. Evidence was called to prove the tenancy of Lincoln's Inn House of the S.P.U. headquarters, where the police seizure was made, and transcripts were put in of shorthand notes taken from time to time at suffragette meerings. Detective-Inspector Hawkins deposed t,hat in rooms occupied by Kenney and Barrett he found a sketch-plan of Loughborough Junction and a detailed plan of a forage stores in that locality. He also found a letter adressed to Mrs. Pankhurst by 'Marianne Cunningham,' urging that something big should be done-some careful night-attack and all gigantic raid on pillar-boxes. Another letter found, and marked "confidential," read that if Miss Chri-g- tabel Pankhurst desired an exceptional opportunity of bringing her cause to the notice of Parliament, let her send an experienced lady shorthand-typist to Ackwortli's staff in the House of Lords. An Ingenius Scheme. The lady should accept any salary, or en give time, "When the police are familiar with her presence she will be passed without question beyond the barriers, During the examination of one of the police witnesses, Mrs. Drummond was seized with a violent fit of coughing and showed signs of collapse; the police matron led her out of court, and it was some moments before the proceedings could be. resumed. Inspector Lawrence deposed that amongst the documents found at the residence of Lennox was one describing a junior branch of the Union as "Y. H. B." These initials meant "Young Hot Bloods." Bottles of Benzine. Fupther police evidence was to the effect that at Lincoln Inn House, proved to have been rented by the W.S.P.U. a satchell was found on a window-sill, and inside the satcheil were eight bottles of benzine, one of which Inspector Hawkins produced, holding about half a pint. A petty cash-book found in the apartments occupied by Sanders contained entries of several sums of money sent to Clayton. (Proceeding)
