I The Baby Claimant. A REMARKABLE TRIAL, SUMMARY OF THE MAIN FACTS. A remarkable vindication of the truth of the proverb that It's a wise child that knows its own father is to be found in the fact that it has taken the twelve good men and true who com- posed the special jury in what has been called wdiscriminately "The strange maternity case 11 and The strange paternity case," just 19 days to arrive at the conclusion that the fair-haired and blue-eyed baby of 15 months, which has hitherto rejoiced in the name of Georgina Henrietta Han. nah Lydia Priestly Salisbury, is not the Postbu- mous child of George Henry Salisbury, who died on January 7th, 1894. It was, as will be remem- bered, in order to decide this issue that the case in question was referred from the Chancery Court, by Mr Justice North, to the arbitrament of SirHenry Hawkins—a judge eminently quail- tied by his great knowledge of the world to deal with such a complicated web of fact and fiction and a picked jury. The baby, who has been present in person during the greater part of the trial, has constantly exhibited I A Levity Extremely Beplerable in so grave a case, coming from one so young. It has at times made remarks and uttered noises to the jury, which, if incoherent, were apparently of an uncomplimentary nature on one occasion it did not hesitate to kick over the receptacle which held its food right under the stern eyes of the Judge; and altogether it seemed utterly indiffer. ent as to what might be the result of the trial. Upon proof of the paternity of this callous entity turned the right of its inheritance to the Halifax estate, valued at between P,800 and £ 1,000 a year, of the late George Kirkman Priestly, who, in default of issue being born to George Henry Salisbury, left his property to other relatives. Hence it was that Mrs Mary Ann Salisbury, relict of the said George Henry, sought, as "next friend" of the infant with many names, to prove that that young person wa3 the chiid of herself and her late husband, and ought consequently, on attaining full age, to succeed to the Priestly estate in Yorkshire. The defendants, who have beeu throughout the case described shortly by the name of Rawson, son- tended, on the contrary, that Mrs Salisbury, with her sister, Mrs Pike, and a ftliv. Crabbe, were conspiring to palm off upon the world as the child of Mr and Mrs Salisbury an infant which had for obvious reasons been procured from its real mother, a girl named Florence Wright. Although the sword of justice still hangs over the judgment seat, and the rival mothers were confronted with the Judge, the case was one which naturally, in these days, did not lend itself to the Solomonesque method. Hence the more prosaic procedure of Trial by Jury. After an extremely partial summing-up by Sir Henry, the middle-aged and highly respectable jury, who could not have been more circumspect in such a delicate matter if they had been a jury of matrons, retired to consider what answer they should return to the question, simple enough in its directness, put by the learned judge Do you find that Georgin Ja Henrietta Hannah Lydia Priestly Salisbury is the child of George Henry Salisbury, who died on January 7th, 1894 ?" After deliberating for nearly two hours they returned into court with a finding which de- cided the fate of one who above all others in the crowded courb appeared least concerned, and made answer, "We do not." This was equivalent to a verdict for the defend- ants, and Mrs Salisbury contented herself by ejaculating It's a cruel verdict." Mr Spokes, who, since the retirement of Mr Jelf, Q.C., has been admirably conducting the plaintiff's case, hazarded the supposition that it would now be remitted to the Court of Chancery, a question which Sir Henry Hawkins was unable to answer, as he had now done with the case." The Judge, before leaving the bench, complimented the jury, and excused them from serving again for a con- siderable time, which was but fair. Bat still the public lingered, apparently in the expectation of witnessing the arrest of the authors of what Sir Edward Clarke, in summing up the case for the defendants, had characterised as "an obvious and wicked fraud.Daily Telegraph.
Opening of Cardiff Sanatorium. INTERESTING CEREMONY TO-DAY. This afternoon the Mayor of Cardiff (Alderman Carey), in the presence of a large number of members of the Corporation and other persons interested, formally opened the new Sanatorium, which has been built by the Cardiff Corporation on the Canton Moors, near the western boundary of the borough. The building is a large one, and weU appointed for the special purposes tor which it was erected, there being two large wards in each main block, and two small wards for special cases. The number of beds thus provided is 44, besides those in the isolation wards. The rooms for the working stall have been sub- stantially and artistically furnished by Messrs Perkins Bros. and Co., Cardiff, in all the latest styles and with many improvements in design, and Messrs Trapnell and Gane supplied the beds. The machinery and appliances put in are modern and of the most efficient types. The contractors for the work were Messrs Turner and Sons, Cardiff, and the cost of the buildings and furnish- ing will amount to about L37,000, exclusive of the cost of the land. In celebration of the open. ing to-day the Mayor and Mayoress hold an At Home at the institution, and in the course of the afternoon the Mayoress was presented with a pretty silver salver. The Mayor received a silver key as a souvenir of the event.

CYCLING IN THE ISLE OF MAN. Death of a General. General Parsons, who has been staying at Peel, Isle ot Man, for some weeks past, died suddenly yesterday on the high mountain road between Peel and Port Erin.

TERRIBLE ATROCITI ES Chinese Massacre. I MURDEROUS ATTACKS ON LADIES AND CHILDREN, I SPEARING & THROAT-CUTTING. AMERICAN DOCTOR INTERVIEWED, I A SICKENING STORY. NEW YORK, Thursday.—The World publishes a telegram from Foocbow giving an account of an interview with Dr, Gregory, an American missionary, who was at Kucheng, near Hwasang, when he massacre at the latter place occurred. Dr. Gregory is represented to have said ;—" On Thursday a native Christiaryrushed into my study 1 saying, 'The foreign ladies at Hwasang have been kiilde.' I went at once to the Yamen, in which I found hundreds of excited natives. In half an hour Magistrate Wong started for Hwasang, escorted by sixty soldiers. The Coolies refused to carry the chairs, and thus delayed us. When I arrived I set about caring for the injured ladies. Miss Codrington had a sword cut seven inches long on her face, and ( other wounds on the head and limbs. Miss Hartford, an American lady, was only slightly wounded. Her servant, Hellis, succeeded- in getting bidden and escaped with a shock. Of the three children Mildred Stewarb bad cuts on her limbs, and her sister, Kathleen, had also received some wounds, but they were not serious. Herbert Stewart had his skull cut open, and soon after- wards died on the road. Evan Stewart had received a stab, but not of a serious character. A baby had an eye and its head cut, and the wounds will probably prove fatal. The bodies of Mr and Mrs Stewart, Miss Nellie Saunders, and that of the children's nurse, named Pellow, were burned iu the house. Kathleen Stewarb removed the baby from under the nurse's body. Miss Hessie Newcombe was speared and ftbrovvn over an embankment. Her body was subsequently recovered. Miss Marshall bad her throat cut. Miss Lena Stewart had received no serious wound but died of shock. Miss Gordon had three spear wounds in the head. Miss Topsy Saunders had her brain pierced. The last three were found lying together in a heap. The post-mortem examination of the bodies disclosed no evidence of mutilation. The band who attacked the station numbered about 80. The ladies, who were first seized, pleaded with their assailants to spare them, and for a short time the latter appeared to waver. The leader thereupon shouted, You know your orders; kill them.' Dr. Phillips and myself worked all night, and placed the dead in coffins. We arrived at Suikow on the 3rd inst. in company with a magistrate and his escort, who impressed boats for the tourney. On the 4th inst. we met the Sub-Prefect in a launch, and he insisted on taking us in tow. We afterwards met Mr Hixson, the American Consul at Foochow, and Mr Gibbs, who bestowed on us every possible care. The Vegetarians are responsible for the attack, and there is no doubt that the provincial authorities were implicated in the disorders. Last month the Viceroy sent to Kucheng 200 soldiers to cope with several thousand savages. This was a mere farce. The Viceroy criminally failed to respond to a demand for reinforcements. The system hitherto observed of accepting a money indemnity for the blood of foreigners has encouraged China to neglect their safety.—Renter." ATTACK ON BRITISH AND AMERICAN MISSIONS. Rioting and LoeUng. HONG KONG, Thursday.—The British and American Missions at Fatshau, near Canton, were attacked yesterday afternoon by a large and infuriated mob. The hospitals were completely demolished. Some of the missionaries fled to Shameen, but others remained at Fatshau. A Chinese gunboat has been sent to quell the riot. It is reported that the anti-foreign agitators intend that all the missions in the Kwan-Tung Province shall be destroyed and the missionaries driven into the Treaty Ports. According to a telegram from Foochow, Archdeacon Wolfe states that the Chinese soldiers despatched to Ku-Cheng looted the mission house,-Reitter.

GOVERNMENT AND PAUPER ALIENS. Mr C. A. Alberga, secretary of the Anti-Alien Immigration Society, recently wrote to the Duke of Devonshire asking if it were true that the Government did not intend to legislate on the subject of pauper alien immigration. The Duke of Devonshire has caused the folluwing reply to be sent Sir,—I am^directed by the I>uke of Devonshire to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 5th inst., and to state in reply that lie I as no reason to suppose the question to which you refer will be lost sight, of by the Government, but it will be impossible for them to introduce legislation upon the subject in the short session about to open.—I am, sir. your obedient servant, ALMION FITZRQY Charles Albei-ga,
I HANGEL) IN A POLICE CELL Yesterday afternoon the Coroner for North Lambeth received information of the death of a labourer named White, a resident of South London. It appeared that the deceased on the previous day was charged at the Kennington-road Police Station with being drank and disorderly. At 2 a.m. he was visited in his cell by a police. sergeant and found to be all right. The police afterwards found a pookethandkerchief tied to the perforated holes of the cell door. The deceased it was found had hanged himself with his pocket. handkerchief.
->- LICENCES FOR RACECOURSES. At Salford Council yesterday Alderman M'Kerrow proposed to memorialise the Govern- ment to introduce a Bill to give the local authorities power to license racecourses. He did so to mitigate the evils of gambling. At Salford, I he said, 180 policemen were required on the race- course at a meeting, an indication that dangerous people frequented the place. The proposal WM denounced as an effort to interfere with the liberty of the people, and was defeated by a large majority. M
TO-DAY'S CRICKET. THE CANTERBURY WEEK, I Kent v. Verkshire, I CANTERBURY, Tliursday.-After a terribly long ( journey from Manchester the Yorkahiremen com- mecof-G their reiurn match against Kent.

Owing to illness Peel stood out from the Yorkshire side, and Foster appeared for the tirst time this season. Kentdepencledon the same side that had defeated Warwickshire. The g ound was still slow and rather soft, but Kent, on winning the toss, went in first. The start was disastrous, Mason being out in Wain- Wright's first over and Easby being bowled at 5. After slowly scoring six, Patterson was brilliantly caught and bowled low down with the right hand, the third wicket failing at 17. Hearne and Mordaant then played Tery steadily, and caused Hirst and Foster to so on for Jackson and Wainwright.

Each county made one change in the team playing; earlier in the week, Bray displacing Macgregor for Middlesex and Champain Sewell for Gloucestershire. Middlesex won the toss and made a disastrous start against the bowling of Townsend and Jessop, Douglas being stumped m the former's first over and Warner bowled in the tatter's first. Two for two. Stoddart and Lucas raised the total to 25, when Lucas was caught at backward point. The bowlers still held the mastery, for the fourth wicket fell at 38 and the fifth at 40.

Somerset batted first with Lionel Palairet and Fowler on a low wicket. Tate, after being hit for a single and a four, dismissed Fowler. Palairet was batting half an hour for two run-, but afterwards hit out well, and 50 was telegraphed when the innings had lasted 45 minutes. Fry and Hartley took up the bowling, but did not stop the run-getting, Roe and Palairet both making many capital strokes. Having assisted to add 70 for the third wicket in an hour, Roe was taken at slip at 91. 1,.

Surrey, who were without Key and Richardson, batted first, and a capital start was made by Abel and Maurice It-ad, 50 being registered in less than 30 minutes. In 65 minutes the pair put on 91 runs, when Itead was bowled. Abel, who was missed at 5Z, and Hayward stayed together until lunch, when the score was 129 for one wicket. sURitEl'.—1st Inning's.

HEREFORD, wis beautifully fine when at 11.30 a start was made in the concluding days I play. Overnight Hereford had lost 5 wickets in con- tributing but 4b of the 377 which was required to beat the Glamorganshire score with the first innings. Shep- herd was joined by Woodward, the bowler-, being Eldridge and E. L. Rees, who did so well yesterday. The new wicket-keeper disposed of Woodward by a smart catch off Rees when but a couple had been added to the score. 48-6-0. With the ad vent of Ware play brightened up a little, but still it took half-an- liour to compile 16, the captain making the only boundary hit. Rees then secured a wicket. Ware mis. judging the wace of a hard ball and making a poor stroke, which enabled Brain to catch him in the slips. 62—7—8. Five runs had only baen produced by the partnership of Shepherd with T. O. Thomas when the pro's inning,4 was concluded all the result of a good; catch in the slips by Barlow again off Rees. 67-8-13. It now seemed certain that Hereford would have to follow on, and there was every prospect that Glamor- gan-hire would gain the first win against a county side by an innings with runs to spare. Pugh and Thomas resisted the attack for some time, but, the score was only slowly added to. Binch relieved Eldridge. A single was hit off (he Penavthian by the last batsman in his first over, and Pngh cut him for three in his next. Pugti was very nearly caught off Binch by Barlow 111 the slips, a splendid attempt being made for a catch, which would have been a remarkable one. The 100 was registered at 11.30, it having taken a minute or two off an hour to core 54 runs. Captain lirain I made the most of his field, several times rearranging the players, but 110 chances came, and 41 runs had resulted from the partnership before Binch caused a separation by faking Pugh's off-stump. 108—9—24. The last man was the lob-bowler,Owens, and he seemed to be going strong when Thomas was given out leg before wicket to Rees, the innings closing at 12.40 for 117, thus leaving Herefordshire 259 behind on the first innings.nnd compelling them to return t the wickets. Eldridge's analysis to date read three wickets for 26, and Rees had taken two for 18. Pullen and Bancroft changed positions in the field. GLAMORGAN.—Jstlnniu?s. J. H.

I SOCIETY LIFE. i Anonymous Letters and Alleged Slander. LADY COWLEY DEFENDANT. I ATTEMPTED SETTLEMENT A fAILURE. I [SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO TEN ECHO."] I The case of Jacoby v. Cowley was opened to-day in the Queen's Bench Division of the High Court, before Mr Justice Hawkins and a special jury, and created an immense amount of interest, as it was understood to involve a somewhat interesting incident in society life in connection with anonymous letters. The plaintiff is the wife of a Mr Jacoby, and the defendant is Lady.Cow. ley,widow of the late Earl Cowley, and the cour*- was crowded long before the usual hour with members of the aristocracy and others interested in the hearing. Sir Geo. Lewis appeared, instruct- f ing the defendant's counsel. Sir E. Clarke, Q.C-, Mr Cock, Q.C., Mr Dickens, Q.O., Mr C- F, I Gill, and Mr Hextall appeared for the plaintiff. j and Mr Darling, Q.C.. and Mr J. E. Bankes fyt the defendant. The Judge did not take his seat till after eleven j 0 clock, and then Sir E. Clarke was not present. Unsuccessful Efforts to Agree. Mr Darling said if his Lordship would give I them a little indulgence a settlement might be arrived M. The Judge complained that in that case a day would be wasted. However, he did not wish to pay the costs. (Laughter.) At a quarter-past eleven Sir E. Clarke came into court, and intimated that the efforts to agrep had failed. Case for the Plaintiff, The jury having been sworn, Sir E. Clarke said the actual issue which would be for decision in the case was very simple, but the case itself was of much importance and great gravity to the lady he represented, who was the wife of Mr Charle" Jacoby. The ackion was against the Dowager Lady Cowley, for slander spoken of Mrs Jacoby. The utterance of the slander was denied by the defendant, so that the issue,apart from the consequences, was whether the words were spoken or not. Mr and Mrs Jacoby some 14 or 15 years ago w. nt to live at a house in Gloucestershire near th" Badminton residence of the Duke of Beaufort, and shortly afterwards they became members of the Badminton Hun, They received the invitation, which was much prized, to becom" members of the hunt, and wore the uniform and buttons of the hunt the last few years. They had always been on terms of friend. ship and intimacy with the family of the Duke of Beaufort, and with all tho best people of the society that gathered round that house, and had at their own house received all the best peop'p in society in the neighbourhood. Down to 1883 they were well received in the county, and occupied a very pleasant position of influence with regard to their neighbourhood. In the autumn of 1893. during the month of October, Mrs Jacoby received two infamous anonymous letters. At the time many letters of the kind were passing about in the neighbourhood. These letters were destroyed, as indeed were the two letters firsfc received in October. He believed that of the many letters received by different persons in the neighbourhood all had been destroyed with one exception, and that one was delivered by li--fl to Mrs JzAcoby in the month of December. 1893. 'l'hp still remained, but lie did not think it 13- read or referred to except that he might say the (statements in it and the other letters seriously affected the character of persons living in the neighbourhood, and the letters were couched in the most offensive and filthy terms. It would be sufficient for him to make the statement what further explanation. During the latter part of October. 1893, certain letters of that kind had been delivered in various places. Attempts were made to find out the authors and communications were made to the Post Office which prevented the forwarding of a letter in one instance, the Post Office not being available. In December, when Mrs Jacoby was walking in her grounds, a boy came up and handed her a letter. This was found to be of a similar character to the others: Now, in 1894 Mr and Mrs Jacoby found their position in the company becoming a difficult one, and he should be in a position to call three witnesses who on three separate occasions heard Lady Cowley state that Mrs Jacoby was the authoress of the infamous letters. There was no suggestion on the reoord that that statement was true, and he did not know where this statement) was made for some reason of personal dislike, but the fact remained and he should prove that Lady Cowley had put about the statement that Mrs Jacoby was the authoress of those filthy and abominable letters. The result of this was extremely serious. Mrs Jacoby had not only suffered in her position in the county, but her health had seriously broken and for the time the slanders had full effect in the county her health had been I in a precarious condition. The results were I so serious that when at the end of the case he would have to ask the jury to consider the ques- tion of damages they would have very important matters in their minds. He would see when the witnesses were cross-examined whether there would be other matters to which attention would have to be directed and other names mentioned. In the early part of the year 1894, when the utterance of the slanders became known to Mr Jacoby, he communicated with Lord Cowley on the matter and instituted proceedings. these proceedings were dropped for purely personal reasons, which perhaps might have to be explained, and a reward of J3100 was then offered for the discovery of the author on the infamous letters. Not only did that reward fail of result, but another letter was delivered to Mrs Jacoby. That letter was sent to Lord Worcester in the hope that his Lordship might assist in the discovery of the author, and he was sorry to say that letter had not been forthcoming. He was sure when the jury came to consider the case they would recognise the great gravity of the issue to the lady he represented. The First Witness. Mr John Adamsthwaito was then examined by ¡ Mr Cock. He said he lived at Siddington Lodger, Cirencester, and hunted with the Bodmington hounds. He knew both Mr and Mrs Jacoby. In the winter of 1893 he first heard of these aaonymous letters and knew something of the nature of them. Mr Darling objectee to any evidence of the contents unless the letters were produced. I Witness, continuing, said early in 1894 he met Lady Cowley when they were out hunting, but he could not say where Lady Cowley spoke to him on the subject of the anonymous letters, and said Mrs Jacoby had written the letters. Mr Cock Did she give any reason for making that statement ?—No. Cross-examined by Mr Ditrling This occurred at a meet of the Duke of Beaufort's hounds, aud he was talking on that day to a good many people. Can you tell me at what meet this conversation took place ?—No, I cannot. I Nor the day ?—Nor the day. You said you had heard before this of the circulation of anonymous letters ?—Yes. How long was that before this conversation ? I think a month or two before. Did you first bear of them in the year 1893 Yes. What part of 1883?-Quite the end. During the hunting season ?-~Yes. I I believe that begins November 1st 1- Yes. And when you heard of the circulation of anonymous letters was that at the meets of the Duke of Beaufort's hounds ?-'y ts. When there was a "oheck" 1-1 heard it at different times. How many people had you hearg talking about it before this conversation ?—I could not say. About how many?—It might be 20 or it might be 50. Before this did you hear people discussing as to who was the author of the letters ?—Yes. I Did you hear any of these 20 or 50 people expressing any curiosity as to who could have writtan the anonymous letters ?—Yes. Were any names suggested ?-No, I think not. What was said ?-They talked about it io a general sort of way. Did none of the people suggest any person as the possible writer ?—I don't remember. I suppose you were careful not to express any opinion yourself ?—No I did not express any opinion. Were all these people members of the Beaufort Hunt ?—Not all.fl Can you tell me any of bheir names ?—No, I cannot. Hovv'ong were you and L.,iy Cowley talking to one ano'her on this occasion ?—I don't know. "()t tllii, w,i:tt Ltdy C)wley said, IflSlrs Jowby has written the letters it is a serious matter," or words so that effect No. You swear that ?—Yeg. Re-examined: Before Lady Oawley spoke he never heard anyone express aø opinion as to who had 'Written the letters. A Gleucester Major in the Box. I Major Frank Giss, of Kingcote, Gloucester, said be was a member of the Beaufort Hunt, and hunted with them in the winter of 1893 and 1894. During that time he heard of these annonymous letters, At the beginning of 1894 he remembered meeting Lady Cowley out with the hounds and having some conversation with her. Lady Cowley said. I suppose you have heard something about the annoymous letters that have been circulated," or words to that effect. Witnesa did not remember his answer, but believed be asked what letters she referred to. She replied to the best of his knowledge, Letters written, or supposed to be written, by Mrs Jacoby," Mr Darling said he had no question. The Hon. E. D. Paik said early in August. 1894, he lived in the neigh. bonrhood of the Badminton Hunt, of which he was a member. He saw Lady Cowley nearly every day they were hunting. Did you have a conversation with her about anonymous letters ?—Very possibly. Do you remember any particular occasion 1- No. Cannot you remember at all ?—No not with :ley accuracy. Can you remember the substance of any con- versation with Lady Cowley ?-Not accurately. Do you remember any occasion when you met her at Summerford Common ?—Not accurately. Tre you able to remember any part of the con. versation ?—Not accurately. Was anything said about anonymous letters, Mr Darling objected. Mr Justice Hawkins said he certainly thought that question ought not to be put. ) Sir E. Clarke Do you remember if you said anything about anonymous letters ?-I may have, but I cannot remen.ber. I Do you remember wnat wss said by Lady Cowley or yourself ?-Not with any accuracy. What did you say ?—WeU, possibly- The Judge No. that won't do. (Laughter.) The Witness Well, I daresay-- The Judge: No, that won't do. (Renewed aughter.) Ine Witness I believe Lady Cowley said, If Mrs Jacoby has written these letters some notice ought to be taken of it," or words to that effect. Sir E. Clarke What did you say ?-No doubt I agreed witn her. (Laughter.) Examination continued: Previous to this matter witness had been on terms of intimacy with both Mrs Jacoby and Lady Cowley. Have you eve- spoken to Mrs Jacoby since then ?—Yes. (Alts Jacoby, who sat below Sir E. Clarke, here said audibly with evident feeling, Never, "J (For continuation see next edition I
A TRAPDOOR. Liability of Landlords and Tenants AN INTERESliNG POINT. A point of some interest to owners of property as well as tenants was decided at the Cardiff County Court this morning by his Honour Judge Owen. The claim was one made on account of personal injuries by Sarah Howell against H. H. Clarke, of Oakfieid-street. as owner of the premises at 39, Salisbury.road, which are in the occupancy of a greengrocer named Press. Mr David was for the plaintiff, and Mr Bailhache defended. The plaintiff,iu walking over the trapdoor outside thi= shop, was precipitated into the cellar on account of the rotten condition of the door. Asked whv the owner was sued, Mr David put in the lease under which he said Mr Clarke was liable to keep the outside walls, woodwork, and iron- work in proper repair. His Honour How can you say the trapdoor is an out- side wall ?—Mr David submitted the door could be termed an outside wall, because it enclosed the cellar.-His Honour; No; the wall is the fabri of the house.—Mr David The mere fact that it is a wooden doorway does not take away its character as a wall.—It was explained that this was not an ordinary case of leaving the trap open. The door gave way on account of its rotten condition. After further argument Mr David asked for an adjournment to include the tenant as a defendant, but his Honour said he was unab'e to do that, and nonsuited the nlaintiff with costs.

SCOTCH HERRINGS FOR SIBERIA. I A new market is being found for Scotch herrings, a consignment of 700 barrels being in transit to Siberia, where they will no doubt be regarded as a luxury. The fish are pickled in Dutch fashion—that is to say, they are closely packed in barrels with a layer of salt over each instalment, while the top of tile barrel is filled with the strongest brine, after the fish below has been subjected to heavy pressure, so as to make them a compact ina-,s.-City Press.

ENCOUNTER WITH A PYTHON. That fearful giant of African reptiles, the python, is rarely met with by human beings in their travels through the Dark Continent. Such an undesirable meeting has. however, occurred near the Namasi military station. Two men in the Administration service encountered one of these monsters the other day. The servants caught sight of him betore coming within reach of danger, when withjthe greatest; excitement they reported their find to a gentleman named Wheeler, who happened to be in the van. Mr Wheeler approached within ten yards of the python and put a bullet through its head, winch, though net killing him outright, rendored him incapable of doing any harm. For half an hour atter this the snake continued to writhe, and the natives would not go n'-a.r him, stating that he was" mkah (Here") still. Ultimately the body was afterwards ta J.;e,¡¡ to Z uiiba, skiined, and found to measure 18 feet 2 inches, fr m the point of the head to the tip of the tail, allowing six inches for the head, which had been cut off.

WRITTEN IN BLOOD. Even some of the inost advanced of American journalists are protesting Bgairnjt the wanton destruction of the Indians in Montana, where, we are told, the latest case of Indians on the war. path has occurred. Listen to what an eulightened writer in Brooklyn says :—" The red population is growing smaller and weaker every year, has less of tribal coherence, and is under menace of the Swiftly increasing white settlements- The war that IS feared will be a war of revengeful assassination on the one side and of extermination on the other and winning "ide. Future historians will look aghast at the record the white man has made for himself in his dealings with the original owners of this land. It is a record that has been wnMen over the plains and moun tains in blood."

CARDIFF PUBLIC WOHKS, 1 Penarth Read Tell, A meeting of the Cardiff Public Works Com- mittee was held this morning under the presidency of Alderman D. Lewis. A letter was received from the Local Government Board sanctioning the borrowing of £ 4,300 for public works depots at Cathays and Saltmead, to be repayable in 30 yeais from date of borrowing. Councillor Robert Johnston wanted to know what was being done with reference to the Penarth-road toll, Mr Harpur said that in the absence of the members of the Corporation the County Council had passed a resolution declining to take further proceedings in the matter. Councillor Johnston then moved that notice be sent to the County Council stating that the Corporation were willing to meet them again after the vacation and further discuss the matter. Mr Ramsdile seconded, and the motion was agreed to. A
HORSE DEALERS MURDERED. Their Liquar Drugged. From Taganrog it is reported that nine horse dealpr3 were murdered the other day at the little village of Arrovrossiefka, near that town. The victims were proceeding to a neighbouring fair, and had put up for the night at the place named. There was some drinking in the evening, and it appears from the post mortem examination that the two murderers succeeded in drugging the horse dealers' liquor with morphia, and after- wards murdered them in co)d blcod with bill- hooks. The murderers were arrested next day with a booty of 48,000 roubles in their possession.
THE GERMAN EMPEROR. The German Emperor has accepted Lord Westbury's invitation to shoot over Wenimergill Moors, Middleton, m Teesdale, on the termina- tion of his visit to Lowther Castle. The inhabitants of the district are preparing to give his Majesty an enthusiastic reception. Troops of Yeomanry and Volunteers will turn out on the occasion.
MADAME ADELINA PATTI. Madame Adelina Patti has definitely arranged to take part, towards the close of the year, in an ultra-faahionable performance at the Renaissance Theatre, Paris. The Renaissance, recently occupied by Sarah Bernhardt, is only a small theatre, but on this occasion it will be sardmed with the fine flower of Parisian society. M. Georges Boyer, an intimate friend of Madame Patti's, has written a little musical piece which was tried recentiy at Craig-y.No?, and which will be given at the Renaissance. M. Boyer is a fashion- able journalist. Amongst other things he does a column of paragraphs, "Courrier des Theatres," every day for the Figaro. He possesses exclusive I channels of information, aud the Figaro pays him I accordingly. On the personnel of the dramatic world of Paris he is admittedly the first authority. Woman. I
Laod'imia, of Stewards' Cup fatn?, is at exercise again. Bad accounts are to hand concerning Sir J. B. Maple's St. Leger pair, Kirkconnel and The Owl. Helm, who was rather unluckily beaten at Goodwood, is due to run in the Astley Stakes at Lewes. Mr McCalmont's 2,000#$purchase, Knight of the Thistle, makes his debut in the Champagne Stakes at Donc-agtgr. At Malton yesterday I'Anson stripped Bed- light, The Docker, and Baano, and gave them a a capital gallop over a mile and a haif. They finished the spin as named, Beano being beaten a long way. A. J. Watson, the one aud five-miles amateur bicycle champion, has left England for Copen- hagen in order to take part in various cycle races at the Danish capita', and also at Antwerp and Cologne. Jewitt's your: apprentice, C. Ward, has been engaged to ride Bedlight in the Lewes Hrmdwap on Saturday, Allsopp is to rido Marco, and Worcester can be put down as a certain siarter for the Lcw-s II m-ncap, lie i« ea.id baveoome Iback to his best form. It is stated that the season at the Naticaal Sporting Club, begins-ou Monday, September 23rd, with the contest between Frank Craig, the Coffee Cooler," and Dart Creadon, of America," for £400. Roquebrune is laid up with thoroughpin on one of her hocks, and she is not likely to run again for a long time. Roquebrnne is heavily engaged as a three year old, being entered for the One Thousand, the Derby, the Oaks, and many, other valuable races, A representative American amateur baseball t team will reach Liverpool on August 20th, and they purpose to play a series of match In this country—in London, Derby, Stockton, Liverpool, and other centres where baseball has a vogue. They will remain in England until the middle of September, and then play exhibition games with an All England team in Paris, and possibly I Berlin. Grig gave a wonderfully smart performance in the Sussex Plate at Brighton yesterday, and she would have been decidedly unlucky to lose,for she ¡ was considerably hampered below the distance, and it -.vas only after patient waiting that Loates dashed through, to win cleverly from Coranto and Potboy. Bentwortb showed speed, but both I Plore and Exnmg BeDe were so badly drawn that their chances were remole from the start.
