A piece of cord tied with a slip-knot was fastened round he infant's neck. The body ttow lies at the Dentil- street MortatuVi I Bute-Rhymney Scheme. I TO-DAY'S PROCEEDINGS. PREAMBLE PASSED; EQUAL FACILITIES WKSTKINSTKR, Tuesday.—The Committee of the House of Lords, of which Lord Ciinton is chairman, to-day resnmed the consideration of the Bill, which proposes to effect a fusion between the Bute Dock Company and the Rhymney Company. Mr Beeseley, the general manager of the Taff Vale Railway Company, who was giving evidence when the committee adjourned lsst night, again went into the witness-box and denied that there bad been any breaches of faith on the part of his company, and alleged on the other haad that the Bute people had apset the en- gagements and agreements between the the two companies. No sooner was an Act passed than the Bute attempted to upset it, or render its provisions inoperative. In the past, and apart from amalgamation, the Rhymney Company had been preferentially treated as against the Taff Vale. The requirements of the Bute officials bad been becoming more and more stringent every year, and it was In their power to make their requirements stringent as against any particular interest. In the interest of the public, as well as in that of his own county alone, he was convinced that all the railway companies at the Docks should be on the same footing. Under this amalgamation a company would be placed ab a considerable disadvantage. Witness was cross-examined by Mr Pember, Q.C., for the promoters, who endeavoured to show that the Taff Vale Railway Company was already in a position which the promoters sought to be in, the Taff having a railway and a dock. Witness replied that the circumstances were different. Mr Pope, Q. C., thenaddressed bheir Lordships on behalf of the Taff Vale Railway Company, and p rgued that there must be some publio ground for this scheme before it was sanctioned. He denied that there was any, and furthermore argued that the effect would be to give the Rhymney line preferential treatment as against other railway companies shipping at the Bute Docks. If the committee gave Lord Bate the control of the Rhymney Railway they would be putting an overwhelming power into his hands which ought not to be allowed. Mr Pember, Q C., then proceeded to reply on the whole case for the promoters of the Bill, and argued that the position which he took up at the outset as,to the desirability and necessity for this amalgamation had not been materially disturbed. A later telegram says the preamble was passed, olauses to be Introduced giving all companies running to the Bute Docks equal facilities. I IMPROVED VALUE OF RHYMNEY STOCK. I Sudden Rise. This morning a private deal in Rhymney Stock took place at nearly yesterday's prioe-namely, 257 but this afternoon, as soon as the news arrived, no stock was obtainable under 273.
