The Man About Town. A harrowing story is going the rounds that several obese Channel trippers have been jammed in the turnstiles and become fixed. This delayed the embarking so seriously, even according to the slow methods preferred by Bute officials, that extra police officers have been placed on duty in the vicinity to lend a friendly hand in clearing the turnstiles when these unex- pected accidents occur This is one of those playful rumours which the wags de- light to tell. The game of stupid obstruction, mis- called regulation, is in full operation. It appears that the public are to be made to feel, once more, the power of a strong Cor. poration. Some sort of regulation was needed badly enough for holiday and especially Bank Holiday crowds, but here we have the ridiculous spectacle of the most, elaborate and totally unnecessary precautions rigidly enforced when there is no crowding, and all the excursionists are respectable people, conducting themselves with the utmost decorum. A Whitechapel excursion crowd for a cheap trip to the sea- side were never yet subjected to such humiliation at the caprice of the Great Eastern Railway Company as the Bute officials consider gracious enough for Cardiff citizens. Bristolians also have a grievance this year. The Docks Committee of the Corporation are collecting a toll on pas- sengers at the Hotwells. It is purely a town's affair and the receipts will go into the Corporation coffers. No humiliating regulations are inflicted on passengers, who are objecting to the toll and talking'of forming an association to protect the interests of passengers. We need an association on this side of the Channel to protect the dignity of passengers and to save them from the humiliation of being cooped up in cattle lairs.. 4 The present week will see the commence- ment of the regular season's sailings. The Weston daily services are being patronised by largernumbersthanin any previousseason, and during tba week the steamers of both companies are running a number of special trips. The Ravenswood commences the Ilfracombe sailings on Friday, and no doubt the Lorna Doone will appear at the same time. The Cambria, Messrs Oampbell's new steamer, which is claimed to be larger and faster than anything in the Channel, is expected on the station in a fortnight's time, and the patrons of Messrs Edwards, Robertson, and Co. are looking forward with lively interest to the appearance of the new and fast Lady Margaret. But for those cattle lairs and turnstiles it would be as easy to take a Channel trip as to board a tramcar. If people could be got to realise the harm they do by late shopping it would be quite unnecessary for the Cardiff Shop Assistants to keep a man trundling about the streets a legend on wheels asking the pedestrian not to shop after 7 o'clock, and to support only those tradesmen who close early. Selfishness and want of thought on the one hand, and avarice on the other, keeps in force a system of industrial slavery as reprehensible as that carried on under sugar canes and cotton trees in the slavery days. The cruelty is more refined, but it is there. Thousands of girls and young women suffer from ill-health caused by excessively long hours of tedious work in frowsy, stuffy shops, where the most elementary principles of ventilation are disregarded. For this the public, who would cry out against slavery if carried on in British dominions, are almost entirely to blame. They insist upon shop- ping late in the evening, and competition and selfishness, singly or combined, meet their wishes and punish the assistants. The early closing movement has been suc- cessful in Cardiff; it has succeeded in Newport, though it was threatened during the experimental stage, and to-morrow the Swansea shop assistants are to demonstrate, .in force in its favour. The fate of the shop assistants is entirely in the hands of the public, who, alas, require so much educating to recognise a palpable truth. It is a cause that ought to be pleaded from every Christian pulpit •in the country. As the greater proportion of a congregation is usually composed of ladies the minister has an exceptionally favourable field in which to exert his nfluence. The cause of the shop girl is worthier the eloquence of every preacher iand Christian teacher than the finest expository sermon ever penned or delivered from the rostrum. If the preachers would fling their crabbed expository sermons through the study window, forget for a time their theology, and dwell on the life and the social teaching of Christ for a time, what might not be accomplished. There are already ¡ signs that Christian f-,Ac.,iers are quitting the Temple devoted to word-splitting Exposition and the sophistry of Theology for the more satisfactory consideration of the social conditions and the daily life of the people. As witness the meeting of the newly-formed socialistic body in the Church of England in Cardiff this week. But I am digressing, and the topic is an alluring one. I need hardly write to-day that I wish the Swansea shop assistants complete success. Here is a letter bearing on the subject, which I have received from a follower of St. Crispin :— Dear Man About Town,—Knowing that you like to hear of anything that appertains to freedom I drop you this line to let you know that the master shoemakers of the I central part of the town of Cardiff have decided to close their shops on Wednesdays at 2 o'clock instead of 5 as hitherto. I hope this will be an incentive to employers in the suburbs to do likewise, and give their employees that time for recreation that they so much need.—I am, etc., ST. CRISPIN." T hope they will adhere to their decision as tenaciously as they stick to their lasts l Let me wind up the Volunteer discussion in as few words as possible. In stating the case from the officers' point of view-so far as I have been able to gather the facts-I should say that because a few of the rank and file are dissatisfied with what is being done for-them, the inference is not that the officers lack interest in the service. Among so large a body of men as the Cardiff Detachment of the 3rd V.B. Welsh Regiment many grumblers could be found. It would not be difficult to find a grumbler in any dozen men taken hap- hazard from any rank or walk of life. The correspondents desire more exhibition marches and manoeuvres. That, I gather, is the principal grievance. There is much to be said for military exhibitions. I re- member hearing Sir Evelyn Wood, when he was commanding the Eastern District at j Colchester, wax eloquent in favour of i bright, showy uniforms for Volunteers, and plenty of marches and manoeuvres. That sort of thing," he said, turning to his wife and daughter and a little party who had been watching experiments conducted by Volunteers with smokeless powder on machine guns, "pleases the ladies, and they count for a .good deal in considering the popularity of the Volunteers." Our local Volunteers crave for marches and Whitsun- tide manoeuvres on Penylan Hill or Penarth Cliff, just to let the townspeople see what the local Volunteer is made of." As to the popularity of the 3rd V.B. Welsh that is shown by the increasing numbers of the rank and file, and by the general improvement in efficiency. It compares favourably with the Artillery Volunteers and the Submarine Miners in Cardiff. The men are better equipped, bet- ter clothed, and in a better condition than they ever have been. The officers who are responsible for the efficiency of the Volun- teers and the earning of the Capitation Grant look to meeting the Government requirements before exhibition marches, and the early part of the Volunteer year is devoted to drill. Naturally they don't consult the men as to the year's programme, and perhaps if they attempted to please all there would be more than a handful of dissatisfied ones. The 3rd V.B. Welsh appear to have in their ranks one or two men who desire every minute of their spare time occupied with soldiering. They are suitable men for the Regulars. As en- thusiastic soldiers with a love of nrms and martial music, they would unquestionably rise to positions of trust and reSponsi- bility. The average Citizen Soldier looks upon it more as an occasional pas- time. He is only concerned to become efficient. The Cardiff Detachment, as already mentioned, increases in numbers the new field service caps are being served out in place of the old Glengarry the ordinary work is going forward and a Brigade Camp is being arranged at Porth- cawl this year, where the most ardent enthusiast will be able to get plenty of work. All this points to the fact that the 3rd V.B. Welsh are not what some of the letter- writers implied by suggestion and inference. If a handful of the rank and file are consumed with the desire to outshine the crack London regiments their disap- pointment with the performances of the local Volunteers can hardly be read as a failure on the part of the officers to appre- ciate (he desires of the rank and file, or th?t they Lck interest in the service.
I ON DEVIL'S ISLAND. I Bstraying Military Secrets. Further information about ex-Captain Dreyfus, who was tried and condemned for having b9- trayed military secrets, has now reached Paris from French Guiana. He is stnH on Devil's Island, which before his arrival was reserved for the lepers, whose huts have been burned. Extraordinary precautions continue to be taken in order to prevent the prisoner from escaping, like the Communists and so many others. There are only a few trepti on the sun-baked I!e du Diable, and Dteyfus, in taking exercise, is limited to a small space of ground. His every move- ment is observed by the governor of the convict settlement, who watches him from the IleRoyale. The ex-offik--r is guarded night and day by two warders. He has not been called upon to do any work, and is stiU prohibited from writing. In the matter of food and drink he enjoys excep- tional privileges. His meals are exactly the same as those of soldiers serving in the Cojonies, but be has to pay for his wine. His friends placed a snm of JS200 for his use 'in the hands of the captain of the ship in which Dreyfus was convoy 1 -to the penal settlement.

1 "» ■■■ 'T|—JBfc—BBggW— WELSH CHURCH BILL. I The Fight in Committee, I The Inclusiaii of Monmouthshire, In the House of Commons yesterday the House went into Committee on the Established Church (Wales) Bill, and proceeded with the considera- tion of Clause 1, which related to. disestablishmenb and prohibition of fubure appointments. An amendment submitted by Mr Jasper More with the object of excluding from the scope of the Bill that part of Montgomeryshire which was in the diocese of Hereford was resisted by Mr Asquith on behalf of the Government, and on a division was negatived by 234 to 206. Mr Rankin nexb moved that these portions of I Radnorshire which were iir the,diocese of Here- i ford should not come within the operation of the Bill. This amendment was negatived by 237 to I 209, the latter number being afterwards corrected to 211. A simitar amendment, moved by Colonel Kenyon-Slaney for the purpose of. exempting from the opereation of -he measure that portion of Flintshire called the Hundred of Maelor, was negatived by 191 to 168. Mr Grifhth-Boscawen moved to exempt Monmouthshire from the operation of the Welsh Church Bill, on the ground that it ought to be regarded as an English and not as a Welsh county. This amendment gave rise to a long discussion, in the course of which Sir E. Ashmead-Bartlett strongly objected to a county being filched from England for the purpose of Welsh Disestablishment, and described this as part of the anti-English policy of the Government. Mr G. Russell declared that the Government were unable to accept a proposal which was opposed to the almost universal sentiment of the in- habitants of the county of Monmouth. Sir J. 'Gorst, in supporting the amendment, said it was now quite clear that the Government having brought in a Bill to please a section of their j followers, who werenob Li nglishmen, w,,re.iflehing a county from England and giving it to Wales. The Solicitor-Gdneral explained that the view of the t Government was- that in national feeling, senti- ment, and religious spirit Monmouthshire was a part of the Principality. Sir R. Webster disputed the correctness of the view of the hon. and learned gentleman with regard to the con- nexion between Wales and Monmouthshire. Mr Balfour pointed out that sinoe the time of 4 Henry VIII. Monmouthshire had unquestion. ably been part of England, and insisted that on every principle the Government were bound to exclude that county from the purview of their Bill. This provision in the measure aimed a distinct blow at the Church of England generally, and if her Majesty's Government wished to maintain their consistency and their logic they would limit the operation of the Bill to the country to which its title primarily referred. Mr Asquith sought to show that from the earliest period of our history by far the larger portion of the districts now Included in Monmouthshire was ecclesiastically a part of Wales. The passing of the Act of Henry VIII. did not alter the fact that in point of race, ♦ziadibion, and language all the districts called the Marches were essentially Welsh. Moreover, there was no county in Wales which had pronounced a more emphatic opinion than Monmouthshire in favour of Disestablish- ment. After some remarks from Colonel Kcnyon- Slaney and Mr Austen Chamberlain in support of the amendment, A division was taken, and the aroamiment was negatived by 201 to 176.
I CONFESSION OF A CONVICT. Thomas Stevens, alias Bradbury (35), a grocer's assistant, of Kamballa-road, Clapham Junction, was charged on remand at North London Police Court with conspiracy and fraud. Arthur Wells, a convict, was brought up by two prison. warders from Wormwood Scrubbs, where he is undergoing penal servitude for uttering and forg- ing worthless bank orders. He was sworn, and said he had known the prisoner for about three mouths. He met him at Waterloo Station going to a hurdle-race meeting. The prisoner told him he had a plan by which he might live on the fat of the land, that he was a first-class penman, and could imitate male or female handwriting. He gave details of his plan, which was to select a district of London, watch tradespeople's carts, call for orders, take the respective addresses, and then go home and imitate handwritings on bankers' drafts and letters, asking for cash on the drafts. The appli- cation would go from tha customer to the trades- man, and the latter would not demur to cashing the draft, for fear of insulting and losing the cus- tomer. Witness waa then to act as servant or friend of the family, and take the sealed note containing the draft and request to the trades- man and wait for the money. He commenced operations in Stoke Newington on March 16. The prisoner was enabled to show what appeared to be genuine drafts by means of rubber stampi3 pur- chased Fleet-street. The witness identified three drafts for 210 each, which he had cashed in one day, and then they met at night and shared -it. Other evidence was given, identifying the prisoner with frauds committed upon various tradesmen in Stoke Newington and elsewhere, and be was remanded.
KNICKERBOCKER, QUESTION. A Lady's Opinlen. Lady Norreys gives in the Lady Cyclist her opinion on the great ktuckerbocker question, and all women, save those of the advanced type, will agree that ib is a reasonable and sensible one. She asserts that the only lady cyclists who have any rude remarks addressed to them are those who wear what is sometimes called "rational dress," and ehe adds "I hate it. I think it perfectly horrible, and I have never met anyone yet who either liked or wore it. I hear a great many opinions on the subject, and I think there is a strong feeling against it. Lady Dudley, La.dy Wolverton, LAdy Lurgau all cycle, but I am sure not one of chem would ppea.r all her machine without a skirt over her kniokerbookers. The skirt is not at all dangerous I wear mine short. It is not made full, and I have it stiffened with horsehair to just above the knees, which keeps it out of the way and prevents it from clogging. It is lined, btit in order that it shall not catch it is stitched in places all the way round, and I find it most successful, and have never experienced the slightest accident or incon- venience from it. I wear no skirts underneath- only knickerbockers and gaiters to the knees." She concludes "Though I believe all objections to cycling itself will gradually die away, I do not think English ladiea will ever quite reconcile themselves to the divided skirt."
CARDIFF COUNTY COURT. An Indignant Witness. Ab the Cardiff County Court this morning— before his Honour Judge Owen-a rather humorous incident occurred in the examination of a witness named Alfred Boaks. Mr Belcher, who appeared for the other side, blandly aslied Beake whether he had ever been in trouble" in Cardiff. The witness thereupon ooloured up with indignation as he replied, "Oh, ah, and so have you." "But haven't you been convicbed?" asked Mr Belcher, returning tothecharge. This insinumation proved altogether too much for the witness, who in a loud voice angrily told Mr Belcher to shut his mouth," adding, What was J ever con- victed for ?"—Mr Belchw You must not ask me thaL-Witness You said I was convicted. I never have been. I appeal to your Honour.—His Honour remarked that Mr Belcher had no busi- ness to ask such a question, whereupon Brake's equanimity was restored, and he left the court with a smile of triumph.
BIGAMY, A Baptist Minister Sent to Penaf Servitude. At tha Liverpool Assizes to-day—before Justice Hawkins—Wm. Browne (42), described as a Baptist minister, pleaded guilty to two charges of bigamy. In one case the prisoner married a Miss Marcbant, of Acton, Middlesex, on the representation that he was a clergyman of the Church of England. She had ;C500, with which they went to New York, whc-re the prisoner abandoned ber, taking the bulk of the money. Sho had sines become insane in consequence. Mr Justice Hawkins, in sentencing the prisoner to seven years' penal servitude, said the punishment was inadequate, for in addition to the offences to which be bad pleaded guilty he had eloped with a young girl who was his wife's companion, betray- iDg her tinder she guise of a Christian minister.
A POLICE STATION WRECKED, BERLIN, Wednesday.—Intelligence from Trieste estates that a serious disturbance has occurred at Grado. A riotous crowd attacked the Police Station, which they wrecked.

The riot was incited by the Slav rural population, from aninio sity to the inhabitants of the town.-Rcutcf-.
I A THREATENING LETTER. I At the North London Police Court Wm. Harris (52), a naval pensioner, of Hillside-road, Stamford Hill, was charged on a warrant with sending a letter threatening to murder Frank Pike, a detective in the W (Brixton) Division of the Metropolitan Police. Chief Inspector Parsons said that in consequence of a letter which he had received from the Home Secretary he obtained a warrant at that court for the prisoner's arrest. When he executed this he showed the threatening letter to the prisoner, and he replied, Yes, I sent it." In this letter he alleged that he had been falsely accused, and the police could clear him. This had affected his Reserve pension, and if his character were not cleared he should do something—either murder somebody or commit suicide, one or the other would have to happen. He solomnly protested his iunocenc.-In reply to the magistrate, the prisoner said that he had been a sergeant-major in the Royal Marine Artil- lery, and he had received war and good conduct medals.—Mr Lane; What was the false accusa- tion ?—The Prisoner That I had received stolen property.—Mr Lane Were you convicted ?—The Prisoner Yes and unless I am cleared I cannot got employment. I am neither one thing nor the other. Pile, the detective, could put me all right if he liked.—Mr Lane said he would remand the prisoner, in order thai* he might be seen by a doctor.—The Prisoner Don't lock me up, tor the sake of my family.—Mr Lane It will be beat for you.—The Prisoner It will drive me to commit some crii-,e.-The prhonfr v;ars n rc- moved to the cells.

I NEWPORT COMMISSION. I I Dirty" Wharves Effacement of 'h? I Gr?vei Patch, „ I At ùø mouthy meeting of the Newport a bour Commissio, held at Newport this mornH? the question of the state of the numerous p? wha;vüs in the river was incidental Yraised by Mr Tapson asking a quet¡on as s slight mishap which occurred to the Leda, of CardiS. as she was 'eaV^ the Great WRst?ra Wharf on the 22nd u? ￼ Tapson said that the owners comp!ainÐd that tb( Leda was detained three days for want of atel at the wharf, and they thought it a duty I. D Oro bent on the Harbour Commissioners to OOIBP^| the owners of wharves to keen them in P??.j condition, so that vessels could get to them at all states of the tide. They had been given to ￼ stand that the depth of water at the ??* the same as at the Alexaidrv Dock siiL ,'?

The Con"? aionerR had no power to cleanse wharves, Wbio the Chairman added were private property. the Commissioners could do was to keep clear tb' navigation of the river. Mr M. Mordey soluj compniRorypowerphad been sought, and '"? very necessary to have such powers. He thou9b, the accumulation of mud outside the second bs'th at wharves interfered with the navigation of tbo river and should be removed. Mr Winn tbougbt the Commissioners might go on dredging b I river until they were black in the face wi*^ doing good if accumulations of mud at wb?, w,?re ,ao\Ved unchecked. Mr Tapson sug?? the employment of the dredger atthewharveSi"6 Mr GoJdworthy said such heavy plant would ￼ damage thGm or render them insecure. AJd. Dal'! said it had been laid down that the subsoil to centre of the river belonged to the whadine and that all the Commissioners could do was keep the navigable channel clear. The ChalrIJ) r. said that the question as to compelling fingers to keep berths clean had often bee 0 discussed, but that the Commissioners had power to interfere, and the diSCuSSIle ended.—Mr Goldsworthy, in bringing up report of the Dredger Committee, said .b: the dredger had been at work on 8 Gravel Patch for three weeks, and had refflOV8 11,550 tons of hard material. The Gravei Pate; itself, he added, was fast becoming a thinff 0 the past. Alderman Jones inquired wh* quantity remained to be removed and the Harbour Master said about 100,000 tons. -)ff Lawrence It will take 10 times as long as wø have been at work to finish it ?-The Harbo'1' Master Yes three weeks this year, and ,be dredger was also at work 11 weeks last year." Mr Wheeler brought up the report of the FJDane Committee, and in reply to Mr Mordey, said ohlll the committee had made arrangements for tIe extra money required for dredging op -rations, whereby the revenue at the end of the dredgiog season would be utilised to recoup what was n0* being spent. (Hear, hear.) Mr A. J. Phillips, tb clerk, read his own application for an increase 0 salary, from 1;250 to £350, and after sever Commissioners had borne tribute to their clerk assiduity and attention to the work,it was unanimously, although Mr Bear predicted eb!l they would get tackled outside about being 1\11 extravagant board.

IA WONDERFUL STEAMSHIP. The White Star steamer Oceanic has arrived at 'Plymouth from Hone: Kong and Singapore. The Oceanic was the pioneer steamer of the White Star fleet. She was launched on the 27th August, 1870, and has therefore been afloat a quarter of a century. It is given to few ocean steamers to do such marvellous work as the Oceanic has done. Coming as an entirrly new ?, as in entirrly new departure—the veritable type of the modem passenger liner, with saloon and state rooms amidships and other innovations-she ran 33 voyages with great success and achieved a high reputation for speed and comfort in the Liverpoo and New York trade. She was then sent out in April, 1875, just twenty years ago, to the Pacific, to run between San Francisco and Hong Kong under charter to the Occidental and Oriental Steamship Company of San Francisco. At the end of 1879 she came home to be reboilered, returning to her station in March, 1880, since when she has not once been taken off, but has continued uninterruptedly performing her work with regularity and efficiency, and has been the most poplar steamer on the Pacific. The Coptic, which until recently was employed in the trade between London and New Zearand, has gone to the Pacific to replace the Oceanic. The other White Star steamers running in the Transpacific trade are the Gallic and Belgic. The Oceanic was designed and built by Messrs Harland and Wolff. Belfast, from whose yard have proceeded the whole of the steamers of the White Star fleet, which have generally been remarkable for their staying power. There is an obvious moral to these records of long-continued running. It is that it is better in the first instance to build a good ship of which the material will last, and by alterations to keep it up to date, than to be continually buy ing new stea.mers which soon become obsolete. How many of our steamship companies have boats 24 years old which can be seriously consi- dered as efficient dividend earning machines ? --<- n
OPERATIVE STONE MASONS. I I Pontypridd Lodge. I TO THE EDITOH OF THE "SOUTH WALES ECHO." I SIR,—Permit me to reply to the report of the Master Builders' Association held on Saturday last and reported through the columns of last evening's Echo. The masters say in their resolu- tion that they do not intend to sign any rules connected with our society. How ridiculous to pass such a resolution, knowing full well that they signed them in May, 1893, and all that we require at present is for them to work to them. We feel as a body of men that we are quite justi- fied in adhering to our rules and, to give satis- faction to the public, we may submit that the majority of the builders of our town are not in the association and arc quite satisfied with the present rules and are proceeding with their work, and wa may confidently say that they have jobs that will employ three-fourths of our members. As already published, wo may say for informa.tion that we have only 30 men on the strike roll, the remaining number are all working, a total number of about 300 and those that are working are ably sup- porting those on strike, and remunerate them with very near full wages. We are bound to notice advertisements of master builders— "Wanted, 40 to 50 non-Society men." Have they work for them ? Wo say that theta is only one builder belonging to the association that has any work worth mentioning, and he has freely admitted through the Press that he has handed over tha jobs that he has in construction, viz., the Tonyrefail Board Schools and new Library at Ystrad to the committees but we maintain to say that our statement is correct, and hope that mfisons will not be deluded. Then, with such statements we contend that such action on tho part of the master builders is very absurd, striving to cause a dispute 111 the town where the chief contractors are satisfied with our ruleR.-I am, &e., I JOHN HOOPER, I I Secretary Pontypridd Lod-e O.S.
