The Man About Town. Now that it is clear the Corporation ot Cardiff can do nothing to retrace the false step taken by their Sub-committee, it is urgent that a new plan of action should be formed. The tolls must certainly not be permitted, and although the Bute authori- ties are said to be devising a method whereby passengers will not be taxed, so gra^e an infliction should not be left even to doubt and uncertainty. The mere possi- bility of an injustice like this is enough to band all thinking ratepayer:) in a common cause. One chance only is left. The Bute Bill should be opposed in the Commons. There is a method fortunately still left to us, de- spite strict Parliamentary regulations. It has not altogether a pleasing name, for in- discretion and bigotry and personal animus have brought odium in no small degree upon it. And yet it is plain to see that, used wisely and for proper ends, its existence is a useful safeguard against the rushing through of selfish measures not calculated to benefit the general interests of the public. I mean that the Bute Bill should be blocked. It needs only that Sir Edward Reed, who can scarcely feel other than sympathetic with the universal opinion of his constituents, should use this effective engine, and the desired end may without much difficulty be attained. If he or some other member blocks the Bill it will, in all probability, force the promoters to withdraw the obnoxious clause. If they do not do this, it will then become necessary to I move its rejection and there is small like- lihood of the Commons disregarding the voice of the town and of its member. Of course, such voice should be clear and unmistakeable. It must not be a quavering, uncertain sound. There is only one way in which it may make its strength and sincerity felt. Petitions should at once be signed by all classes of the community. I should suggest that those who have done such admirable public service by public speech and action against the conduct of the Sub- committee should add to the indebtedness of their fellows by speedily printing forms of petition and seeing that they are properly circulated and signed. Armed with a sanc- tion so clear and pronounced, Sir Edward Reed would regard the battle with complete assurance of success. It must not be for- gotten that, if the Bill be wholly with- drawn, Cardiff will not be the losers. Many specious arguments have been used to cloud the issue but it must never be lost to sight that the Bute Docks Company is compelled, for its own interest, to construct a large dock. Cardiff is falling behind the time, and she will not be much longer able to compete with her ampler. Is it possible, then, that the Bate Company will be able, in a huff, to throw up their undertaking ? Are they philanthropists seeking to spend three-quarters of a million simply to add to the prosperity of the town ? Or are they not a simple commercial body of men who aim at a business end for the benefit of themselves 1 Indeed, the present, Bill does not in any way provide for the building of a new dock. That must be kept clearly in mind. All that it seeks is poiver to build it within a period of ten years. Practically it is a pro- hibitive measure intended to prevent any rival company from anticipating its pro- moters within that period of time. Even if the Bill passed, the dock might not be built and if it is, it might not be started for a decade. I do not, of course, suggest that the dock will not be built. It must be. But what I wish to point out is that there is no obvious intention of starting at once, and a delay of one or two years in the passing of the Bill will, in all likelihood, have no practical effect in injuring the final prospects of the proposed undertaking. For such a shadowy gain it is sheer madness to throw away so important a principle. The Bute Company get all their money from the trade of the town and its district. It is un- fair that they should seek to tax the pleasures of those by whose industry and labour they profit. Is this new step to be taken ? If so, to action at once 1 It will be a new-and in some respects a startling-development if this matter be taken up and carried through successfully by the Trades Council; if the individuals whom the steady stay-at-home rate- payer has become accustomed to as- sociate with bands and processions, strikes, and threatened tumult, should appear in the entirely new and original" character of rate-savers. They will assuredly go up at a bound in the esteem of good folk whose consciences are perilously near the breeches pocket. For my own part, I am most struck with the fact that here we have a new social power in process of evolution upon novel lines. It is only recently that the Trades Councils have acquired so much influence in relation to electoral work, and now, already, Cardiff organisation goes a step farther, and is to be utilised as a safeguard against the consequences of mistakes by the constituted municipal authorities. Will the next stage be admission of reporters to their meet- ings and didactic discourse to those unfortunate slaves of the pen, administered by irate gentlemen in a condition of care- fully-cultivated indignation ? Before this disaster, though, we may expect to see I beneficial intervention in local affairs carried further. No local M.P. can afford to disregard a Trades Council resolution. No municipal representative would venture to set that body at naught and as a result of any action taken this evening, we must expect considerable enhancement of the power which the Trades Council will exer- cise in the 1st of November contests. Platonic friendship The learned counsel in the recent sensational case spoke of it and observed that a great philosopher had held it possible. What philosopher 7' asked the Judge. Whereupon Counsel stammered and stuttered, and could not say. Well, the question is not settled. Who, then, was the philosopher who advocated' Platonic friendship ? And why is it called ¡ Platonic friendship ? I pause for a reply I The Corpus Christi Procession is a touch- ing and beautiful spectacle young girls in I immaculate white, tripping I merrily along with hearts aflame in bright anticipation of the coming feast, not yet on the threshold of life, gazing still afar and with not clearest eye upon the future. It makes one pause a moment to reflect what the future has in store for them—these bright-eyed children —when years shall have rolled over them, and they, perhaps with wistful tear-stained face, regard this solemn festival from the bitter altitude of experience. It is by such beautiful and impressive ceremonies that the Catholic Church has kept itself in proud pre-eminence. Aye, ear and soul alike are awed by such a gathering. There is no separation in that magnificent old Church of the elements of man's life; each contributes its share. Is there its like to this Cor- pus Christi Procession in any other faith, one so attractve to young people, so solemn to the old, so fascinating to all alike ? The Catholic Faith teaches still the world how magnificently useful ceremonials can be made, how instructive and impressive and inspiring. Life would be more beauti- ful if some of these lessons were better earned and the external was not so much neglected.
IS MARRIAGE A FAILURE. Further Deoline in the nate. The fifty-fourth annual report of the Registrar- General of Births, Deaths, and Marjfiages in EIIlana was issued to-day. The estimated popu- lation of England in the middle of the year 1892 was 29,405,054, consisting of 14,247,943 males and 15,157,111 females. The numberiof marriages regis- tered in the yearjwas 227,135,showing 15.4 persons married per thousand living, compared with 15.6 in the previous year. Taking the returns from 1886 the Registrar-General rem arks that if the marriage rate is an index of prosperity the condi- tion of the country has, on the whole, been improving in recent years. The births registered in the year were 897,975, and were in proportion of .30.5 to each 1,000 persons living, this rate being lower than in any previous year on record, with the one exception.1870, The number of deaths was 559,684, and they were in the proportion of 19.0 to each thousand persons living. This rate was lower by 1.2 per thousand than the excep- tionally high rate of 1891.

Amusing Breach of Promise Case. THE PUBLICAN AND HIS INAMORATA. Fascinated by a Rival. In the Queen's Bench Division, yesterday before Mr Justice Lawrance and a common jury, an action for breach of promise of marriage, Sailing v. De Pape, came on for hearing, in winch damages for £ 1,000 were claimed. The plaintiff is Lily Sailing, a young lady of comely appear- ance, residing with her father at High-road, Tottenham and the defendant, H. C. D. Pape, proprietor of the British Queen public-house, Gateshead-on-Tyne, and the owner of consider- able landed property, valued at £11,000, situated in Hull, where his relatives reside. Defendant denied the promise. Walked Out Together. Mr Abinger, in opening the case, said thab the plaintiff was a young lady of 22 years, and she lived with her father, who was an iroumonger carrying on a large business at Tottenham. The defendant was the proprietor of a large public- house, the British Queen, at Gateshead-on-Tyne, and was also a racing man. The parties were acquainted from childhood, and the defendant had enlisted in the army, bub upon the death of his father the mother, who was left with sufficient means, secured his discharge in July, 1892. Shortly after this the acquaintance between the two ripened into friendship, and they walked out together for 18 months, with the permission of the plaintiff's father and mother, and in the month of April, 1393, it culminated in a proposal for marriage, which his client accepted. Continued on Affectionate Terms. Defendant promised her an engagement ring, and they continued upon affectionate terms. The defendant told the plaintiff not to let his mother know of the engagement, as his mother was anxious that he should stop with her, but the plaintiff had already acquainted her parents with the engagement. In the month of June the defen- dant's mother somehow came to know of the engagement. They continued upon affectionate terms. In June the defendant's great aunt died intestate, and lie, being the rightful heir. became entitle! to a considerable estate at Hull, consist- ing of large freehold property and houses, and all sorts of th;ngs—(laughter)—the value of the estate being something liko 211,000. The coun- sel read various letters with the object of proving the affectionate terms upon which the parties were. Gave her a Back Seat. Matters so weut on till the 13th August, when the defendant's brother died, and the plaintiff was invited to attend the funeral. This was to take place from the house of Mrs Smith, and there was living with Mrs Smith her daughter They went to tho funeral, but on the way plain- tiff found that the defendant was absolutely making eyes at Miss Rose. (Laughter.) On returning the usual felst-a high tea-(laughter) -followed, and n the course of it things were said which made tin; plaintiff still more anxious, particularly as it was discovered that Rose had a bit of money upon her own account. (Laughter.) Subsequently a trip was taken to Epping Forest, in which plaintiff and the Smiths took part, but defendant put the plaintiff in a back seat and placed Rose on the box UfJxt himself. He Married the Rival. He refused to speak to her, and two days alter- wards, after meeting the defendant and Rose walking out together, his client demanded an explanation in private, but he refused. On the same evening he went to Hull, from where he wrote to plaintiff, saying that Ins estate there was of very great value, that he bad purchased a pinir of horses for £ 300, was going on the turf with his uncle as his private secretary, and that he had just won £150. Further, he said that his client should ride about in her carriage and pair. He also sent her a kitten in a basket, the first step towards furnishing a house The jury might imagine the feelings of the plain- tiff when, on the 29th January, she saw a carriage and a pair of white horses drive up to defendant's lodgings immediately opposite the plaintiff's residence, a favour being prominently displayed in the coachman's buttonhole, the defendant and the best man in white kid gloves, &c., jump in, away they drove to church, where defendant was married to Rose Smith. A Doubtful Good Turn. Miss Lily Sailing, a pleasant-looking young lady, dressed in black, was here examined in corroboration of counsel's statement. Among the witnesses called by the plaintiff was Chas. Hoare, of Tottenham, an acquaintance of defenda.nt. The defendant asked witness to do him a good turn—to take Miss Sailing out, and go into court and swear he (witness) was going to marry her, but witness refused, and said that defendant must be mad to think of such a thing. The de- fence was that the promise was never made. A verdict was given tor plaintiff, damages L135. Judgment accordingly with costs.
GROSS IMMORALITY, Alleged Abduction and Procuration. Ab the Lambeth Police-court, yesterday, Richard Williams, described as a labourer, cf Hindon-street, Pimlico, was charged on remand with an offence under the Criminal Law Amend- ment Act. He was further charged with unlaw- folly taking Matilda Jones, a girl under the age of 16, out of the possession, and against the will, of her father, Geore Thomas Jones. The prisoner was further charged with procuration. Matilda Jones, who said she would be 16 years old next June, but who looked older, sa;d the prisoner formerly lctlged at her father's house. Upon one occasion he askfd whether she was only 15, and she told him" Yes." On the 4th March she obtained a, situation in the Kennington-road as a servant, and left home to go to it. The prisoner met her on the way, and told her ifc was no good her going to the situation, but if she went and lived with him he would marry her when he got work. She agreed to go with him, and they took a room at Horseferry-road as man and wife. On the following Thursday the prisoner told her she would have to earn money by immorality, as he had no money, and that night be took her and placed her outside St. George's Hospital. She received several sums in this way and gave them to prisoner. The prisoner was committed for trial.
FIRE AT CARDIFF. Between five and six o'clock this morning a fire was discovered to have broken out at the premises of Mr W. J. Chudleigh, greengrocer and potato merchant, 50, Sophia-street, Docks. An alarm was at once raised, and the reel from the Bute-street fire station was despatched in charge of Fireman Moger and P.C.'s Dredge and Green. It was found that the fire had originated on the ground floor of the shop, which was full of smoke but a plentiful supply of water being obtainable, it was soon got under. A part of the flooring boards was burnt through, while a basket, batter-cask, and a quantity of papers were also destroyed. Chief-eugineer Geen wa present, and rendered assistance in extinguishing the fire. The stock, which on the previous night had been packed up by Mr Chudleigh, who in- tended removing to another shop iu George- street, was insured.

Cardiff Municipal Muddle MEETING OF THE "SPECIAL" COMMITTEE. Attempt to Evoke Order out of Chaos HOW FAR IS THE CORPORATION commiTrED P, A Conflict (tf Expert Opinion. The Mayor (Councillor W. J. Trounce) pM sided over a largely-attended meeting of tht "special committee held this morning, whell matters pending with Lord Bute were reported upon. There were present Aldermen D. Lewis, Sanders, and Jacobs, and Councillors F. J. Beavan, Wm. Lewis, T. H. Riches, E. Thomas, and J, Ramsdale, with the town clerk (Mr J. L. Wheat- ley) and the borough pngineer (Mr W. Harpurl A long and frequently confused conver.-atio", discussion took place as to the position of affairl between the corporation and the Bute authorities. From what transpired, it would seem that tht following matters remain unsettled, or (as it wat called) stand in abeyance :-Retaining wallt Glamorgan Canal, North-road the carrying of the water main over Penarth road bridge; the bridge over the canal into Hili's-terrace claim by the Bute for lack ot water compensation the silting of the bed of the Taff Glamorgan Canal Company and the oore poration; proposed clauses and amendments inserted in the Bute Docks Bill; right of way between the Taff Vale wall and the feedert re baths; Roath sewer outfall enlargement^ and land wanted for widening Albany* road near Roath Church. Anollhet matter was reported upon, namely, the new police-station at the Docks. The corporation have here only the reversion of the lease. As tc) the water mam over the Penarth-road bridge, it was stated that the deputation committee had been promised" by Sir W. T. Lewis that alL other matters arranged, we shall not stand in your way in this matter." With regard to the silting of the bed of the Taff, the Mayor said the notice to apply for an injunction against the COIN poration was still pending it had not beev withdrawn; Councillor Thomas likening it trattf I THE SWOED OP DAMOCLES. Councillor F. J. Beavan thought the property and markets committee should cause the action to be proceeded with as soon as the corporation were prepared with their evidence. In the course of the meeting the question arose as to how far the corporation were committed in supporting the Bute Docks Bill. While Councillor Ramsdale I denied that they were committed to the approval of the Bill in its entirety, the Mayor declared that they supported the Bill cn bloc all that it contained.1* Again, other members said the Parliamentary sub-committee bad only a. sented to the diversion of the Taff. Councillor W. Lewis naturally ex- pressed hiipself as utterly befogged by theso conflicting statements of members of the deputa- tion committee itself.One member (AldermanSan- ders) had asserted that they bad only assented to the Taff diversion, whereas another declared they had committed themselves to the whole Bill, and that two members were to be selected by the Bute Decks Co. to give evidence in its support! Alderman Jacobs gave it as his opinion, as an old Parliamentary band," that they oonld not petition in favour of a Bill piecemeal but Coun- cillor Riches challenged this pronouncement, say- ing that it was a common practice to lodge wha* was styled A BENEVOLENT PETITION," I in which right was reserved to oppose any indivi- dual items :11 the Bill while giving support to its general principles. Councillor F. J. Beaven threw more light upon the tangled skein by stating that ib was dis- tinctly understood that while the corporation agreed nob to oppose the Bill, or any part of it, they would not support the tolls' clauses, to which observation Councillor W. Lewis rejoined, Yet you did not go in opposition to it Alderman Jacobs declared that if they had been asked whether they were in favour of the tolls, they would have replied emphatically in the negative. It had been pointed out by Councillor Riches that it was desirable the Parliamentary sub-committee should have power not only to settle matters specifically set out in the Bill, but other matters pending between Lord Bute and the corporation, so as to enable the committee to adopt 13ir W. T. Lewis's favourite course, and PLAY OFF ONE MATTER AGAINST ANOTHER, whether in the Bill or not, in order to secure as favourable terms of sattlemenb as possible. In the end it WM resolved, on the motion of Councillor Riches, seconded by Councillor Thomas, to recommend the council to authorise the Parliamentary sub-committee, whilst negotia- ting with Lord Bute, the Bute Docks Company, and the Glamorgan Canal Company re the Cardiff Corporation Bill, to take into consideration other matters affecting the corporation, and determine a settlement of the same, and that a special meet- ing of the council be caUed to consider this proposi tion. Inasmuch, too, as it had been found in practice that the work of the sub- committee of the special committee and that of the Parliamentary sub-committee had clashed, it was further resolved, on the motion of the Mayor, seconded by Councillor F. J. Beavan, to dissolve the sub-committee of the special" committee; and the proceedings closed somewhat abruptly, to make way for the waterworks cony mittee.
AN APPiAL FOR FUNDS. The Freeman's Journal says an appeal has been issued by ahe Irish Parliamentary Party to the Irish people, calling for subscriptions, as it has become impossilbe to withhold from the country the fact that without immediate and generous helptbey cannot hope to keep up during the remainder of this session the constant attendance of Irish members at Westminster. Owing to industria1 depression in America, Canada, and Australia, and other causes, they cannot count upon assist. ance from abroad, and must appeal to Ireland.

His Lordship having summed up, the jury re- turned a verdict for the defendant.

I Corpus Christi. -1 Impressive Ceremonial in Cardiff. Regarded as one of the greatest feasts of the Roman Church, the festival of Corpus Christi is celebrated by the Catholics of Cardiff with signal zeal and earnestness, whilst the Protestant majority of the townspeople recognise the event as one of no little importance —if only from a spectatorial point of view. Its antiquity alone has a hold upon the sympathies of those who view with regreb the latter-day decline of honoured institutions, the ghosts alone of which are flitting through the gloomy shades of time, while the solemn grandeur of its observance earns for it a marked regard and honour. The feast was instituted by Pope Urban IV., so far back as 1264 in honour of the doctrine of the Eucharist, and annually on the appointed day have the vast mass of Roman Catholics through- out the world maintained its oelebration. Rarely is there shown such a widespread unanimity of observance as that practised by the Roman Church in her feasts. Nations and tongues and the spacious stretch of ocean and land retarcl not the least their methodical and simultaneous practice, whilst the wise injunctions of the Vatican pre- vent the obsolescenca which is now-a-days so noticeable in social Tn", Yesterday was a gloriously bright day and admirably suited for the alfresco performance of the significant rites. It, is a singular fact that throughout the number of years the Fete Dieu has been observed in Cardiff with such public ostenta- tions the atmospherical conaitions have always been of the most agreeablecharacter. Following, as it did, a spell of typical March weather, the welcome sunshine induced thousands of people to turn out and view the procession of children. The function would seem to be eminently a juvenile festival, though, of course, the adult societies connected with the different churches took prominent part in the proceedings. The St. Peter's contingent, with that of St. Paul's, Tyndall-street (tho girls from this mission wear- ing black sashes in memory of the late Father Butler), joined St. David's at Bute- terrace St. Patrick's (Grangetown) and St. Joseph's (Penarth) joined at the Bute Monu- ment, St. Mary's at Westgate-street, and the Nazareth House children in Duke-street. Headed by the priests of their congregation, and accompanied by their teachers, each contingent marched to a point of conjunction near the Bute Monument, and thence traversed the thorough- fares of the town between there and Cardiff Castle. It was estimated that there were at least 5,000 children in the procession, and the sight was an exceedingly pretty one. The girls of each school were given priority of the boys, and naturally, as regards display, their costumes lent a far better efftcb. Dressed in pure white, tastefully relieved with sashes of lIght blue or scar lot, and wearing each a muslin veil and a garland of whitelfowers, the girls —many of whom were mere dot?,toddling along in white socks and anklebancls—looked charming to a degree. The boys wore badges of green or red rosettes; whilst almost every alternate child carried a gaily decorated banner inscribed wit.h 0n:)(' ):"r' i: (0'" ic' In the vicinity of the churches were Tcrowds of mothers or friends watching with jealoua pride their own "little ones in the gathering but as the procession neared the centre of the town the crowds of spectators were dense, and demon- strated the intense interest manifest in the festival. Women with splenetic children, men content to forego for a time the call of business, perfunctory nursemaids with perambu- lators, and the many various descriptions of man- kind that constitute a British crowd, contumaci- ously held possession of every coign of 'vantage while the retinue passed. The scholars gained admittance to the Castle grounds by the smaller gate m Cattle-street, while those of the general public who were fortunate enough to be possessed of tickets were admitted at the Canton bridge lodge gate. The scene in the grounds was one of reverent anima- tion and lovely yerdure. Two altars had been erected on the ground, in which floral offerings and candelabra formed an imposing sight. and candelabra formed an imposing sight. Some little time elapsed before the procession round the park was arranged. The sound of slow music, however, announced its advent, and the assembled people arranged themselves in order along the feeder and in the centre of the ground. The children came first and marched far down the grounds to a point whence they were marshalled so as to form three sides of a spacious square, the large concourse of people forming the fourth side. Then carne the band of the 3rd Welsh Regiment, the acolytes and the choristers singing the opening hymn of the Sacrament, 0, Salutam Hostia." The Bishop of Newport and Menevia and attendant priest3 followed next under a canopy, and the train being brought up by the local members of the League of the Cross. The bishop carried a gold monstrense, beautifully jewelled, and the attendant priests (Father Van Den Heuvel and McC'emiai) were in gorgeous cloth of gold vestments, with rich embroidery. Father Hayde was assistant priest, and Mon- signor Williams led the chants, with Father Gibbons as master of the ceremonies. The other I priests present wore Father J. Bailey, Father Matthews (Canton), Father Parker, Father Nolan, Canon Wado (Merthyr), Dr. Saunders (Swansea), Father Bray (Treforssfc), Father Fitzgerald, Father Cambran, Franciscan Father Bernardino, O.S.F., Father Francis Mooro (Brecon), Father Driffield (St. Paul's), Father D'Hulst (Barry), and Father Brady (Grangetown). The canopy- bearers were Dr. Buist, Dr. Kelly (Barry), Messrs Frank Bright, Augustus Stone, Supt. O'Gorman, T. Callaghan, sen., Holtham, Dearlove, Hobson. Matthews, and others. As the procession wended its way along the green sward the Litany of Loretto was sung, and tho Tantum Ergo and Laudl Sion. The spectacle h^.re WHS piotui-t-sque <uirl singu- larly impressive. The lines of white stretched far way over the mead of virgin green, and the vari-coloured baunerettes scintillating on high in tiie brilliant sunshine was a scene striking for its beauty and arrangement. But there was,also a scene profoundly impressive and affecting. It was the aspect of sincer(k, reverence maintained by the vasterowd. T/ironghoutthewhoIeof theproceedings fchero was evinced a decorous, dignified demeanour, but as the Tabernacle passed in its way down the avenue of people the piety and full- hearted veneration of the devout adherents to the Catholic faith was for a moment witnessed in its best phase. Every head was bared and every knee was bended. The harsh, relentless man of business paid his attribute, and the haughty dame her homage to the sanctity of the Eucharist. The sight was one of lasting impression. lu fpok,3, of peace and worldly quiettide-a brier interval in the struggle of life, when Intestine war no more our passions wage, And giddy factions here away their rage. The Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament was pronounced at each of the altars, after which the multitude dispersed-many to wander for a brief time round the beautifully-wooded ground, bu the children to partake of an appetising tea at convenient quarters. It may be mentioned that many of the ad. joining towns sent contingents to join in the ceremony. Father O'Hare came with 2'0 people from Swansea, 120 being members of the League of the Cross, and the rest representatives of the St. Patrick's Society F at her Scannell brought 200 from Maesteg, with drum and fife band while Newport was represented by 150 people, headed by Fathers Bailey, Willcox, and Bath. Father Matthews, of Canton, had the charge and arrangement of the ground.
