MOTHVEY NATIONAL SCHOOL REPORT. The report of H.M/s Inspector in connec- tion with the Mothvey National School has just been received. It certifies that the work throughout the school shows that the teaching is thorough and intelligent. The records of the scholars' progress had been well kent. Some chairs should be nrovided. and the walls require colouring." Theachool has been excused from examination for the coming year. and has been awarded the high- est want. We congratulate Mr. G. H. Hovle1 (the headmaster) on the manner in which his energetic scho^^ic efforts have been so suo- cessfully rewarded. CRICKET NOTES. Cricket is once more in full swing here. The Collegians have played two matches and unfortunately have been defeated on each occasion. Wp trnrt. however, there is better luck in store for them. What the town eleven will be like is at present a mystery, as we have not yet had an exhibition of their prowess. Undoubtedly uome of last year's players will be again available, and these with the addition ot some new blood should make things hum ior some of our South W f\ les teams. t., LLANDOVERY COLLEGE v. ST. DAVID'S COLLEGE. LAMPETER. CRUSHING DEFEAT FOR THE LLANDOVERIANS. Elevens representing these rival colleges .met at Llandovery on Saturday last, in ideal cricket weather. The visitors won the toss, and elected to go in first to the wickets. Wm. Roberts and Alcwyn Jones (of football fame) opened the innings, and immediately pun- ished the bowling severely. Alcwyn Jones hit vigorously, but with the total at 36, Roberts' "sticks were disturbed by C. M. Davies. The remaining batsmen, without ex- ception, treated the home trundling roost mercilessly, and thanks to brilliant batting by AtcWIn Jones, LI. Griffiths, T. Price, W, T. Phillips, and T. P. Btea, the admirable flcore of 201 runs was registered for the loss of only 9 wickets, when the visiting captain declared their innings at a close. The Llan- doveri&ns followed but gave a most feeble display. Rees' fast deliveries being too good for them. Lockyer and Green were the only batsmen to get into double figures, lhe innings closed for 45 runs, the Lamp inna thus gaining an easy win by 156 runs. Appended are the respective scores:- 8t.

Williams, grocers, King's-road, applied for an increase of 4sv 2d. per cwt. on their contract for suppling sugar to the House on account of the advance in the duty on sugar.—The Clerk stated that the applicants were quite within their rights in making the application, and cited a section of the Act dealing on the point.—The Board thereupon acceded to the request. —, Revaluation of Railways.—Mr. Thomas Jones gave notice that he would move at the next meeting: "That the time had arrived in the opinion of this Board that the Assess- aiLnt Committee of the Union should take steps to re-value the railways in the Union. Proposed Change of Honrs.—Mr. Tudor I*wis gave notice that he would move at the orxt meeting that the hours of the meetings dUling the summer be changed from 11 o'clock to 10.30 a.m. Rate Collector's Salary.—Mr. W. M. Da- lies gave notice that he would also move that the salary of Mr. John James, the col- lector of poor rates for Llandingat-within and without, be increased. It should be stated that this notice arose through an ap- plication from Mr. James for an advance in "is salary to £40; namely, £20 for Lland- ingat within, and £ 20 Llandingat without. The reason for the anolication it appears was \nat in consequence of the Agricultural Rates Act. the salary had decreased £ 15 ayeax. Appointment of Deputy Medical Officer.— A certificate was placed before the Hoard, ^rtifying the sanction of the Local Govern- ment Board to Dr. Berryman's appointment medical officer for the No. 1 district. Dr. «erryman submitted the name of Dr. James for the approval of the Board as his jjeputy, remarking that he (Dr. Evans) was a Welsh-sneaking Welshman, whose Welsh y".a8 above impeachment."—The Board sano- "oned the appointment. DISTRICT COUNCIL. Thii Council met at the Town-hall at the ^nclusion of the business of the Board, un- 2,er the presidency of Mr. James Rees, of Sarth. The Cefncerrig Bridge.—Mr. Gwvnne-Hol- ord's Subscription.—Mr. B. P. T-'ovd in- f?rined the Board that in answer to his let- Mr. Gwynne-Lolford. of BucVland, had h:s cheque for £ 50. beine his sub- towards the erection of th° bridge Ver the Ydw Brook, near Cefncerrig, Mydd- fai.—Mr. Gwynne-Holford also stated that he had inspected it when last down in the vicinity, and pronounced it to be a good, strong structvjre. He was, however, of opin- ion tnat the bridge could have been built at less cost. He referred to the fact that it had been designed and carried olt under the su- pervision of Mr. David Isaac, of Brecon, an old county survevor of Brecon, and an old Mothvey boy. (Hear, hear.) He also in- quired the total cost of the bridge, and urged them to try and get the County Council to take it over.—Mr. Tudor Lewis considered that the County Council ought to take over the bridge.—Mr. David Davies (Rhyblid) stated that the County Council had already taken over several—Mr. E. P. Lloyd stated that the total cost of the erection of the bridge was about £ 900.—The Council directed the Clerk to write to Mr. Gwynne-Halford expressing their thanks for his cheque, and to furnish him with the information asked for.

A PLEA FOR RELIGIOUS UNITY. BROAD-MINDED VIEWS OF THE REV. J. G. GREENHOUGH, M.A. WOULD BE WILLING TO USE VINEGAR AT THE LORD'S TABLE. The Rev. J. G. Greenhough, M.A., of Lei- cester, the President of the National Coun- cil of Free Churches, filled the pulpit at the anniversary services of Mount Pleasant Chapel, Swansea, on Sunday last, and preached morning and evening before crowded congregations. The evening discourse was especially appreciated for the broad-minded and outspoken views expressed. Taking his text from Romans x.-l and 2: "Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they might be saved, for I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge," the preacher said that St. Paul, as everyone knew, was himself an Israelite—a Jew-and he remained one to the last. That was to say. he did not cease to become a patriot when he became a Christian, though there were some people in the present day who styled themselves "Cosmopolitan," and yet when they came to be analysed it generally amounted to this: that they loved every other country and peo- ple better than their own. St. Paul was no cosmopolitan in that sense. Though he had little to love the Jews for after his conver- sion, he believed if they could only be won to Christ they would be the mightiest agent in winning the world to God. They might almost believe that now. The preacher meant that if the Jews, aa a race, were to accept the blessed Lord as their Messiah—if they were to become earnest Christians—he thought they would settle the greatest war the) world had ever seen, for whatever things might be said of that people they had always been a brave, determined, strong, and long-suffering people, "for I bear them record they have a aeal of God, but not according to knowledge." From the text, the rev. gentleman went on, they got two things which were needed-zeal and knowledge. Or. as they might put it, fire and light. St. Paul always put zeal or earnestness next to charity as a Christian qualification. He was himself a zealot. He admired the earnestness of the Greek run- ners and the Roman wrestlers. and a religion without passion-a faith without fervour- was well nigh intolerable to him. It seemed to be a contradiction. He could not under- stand a people placing their religion as a sort of side dish in the banquet of life, or a sort of Sunday ornament, or something to be touohed with cold lips as though it had to be kept at a convenient distance. There were people to day who treated religion too much in that manner, and the preacher almost thought it was better to be zealous in a bad cause than to be indifferent in a good one. All the world admired zeal. He fancied the great majority of people were not so much convinced by logic or even led by principles, but they were mightily impressed by zeal, and sometimes convinced and carried away by it. They seemed to think that if there was zeal there must be truth, but it did not follow. The more the mischief if the zeal was for error. He admired the zeal of the Romish Church, though he abominated its errors. One never entered that church with- out setting the deplorable idolatory, and yet you could not help feeling the whole-hearted, sincerity and earnestless which were often exhibited theie. On the Continent, where the Church of Rome had no competitor, men with their daily burdens went into the churches to spend an hour in silent prayer, while women borne down with sorrow and sad metmories could be seen spending their last penny they had in the world on a candle for vsome irresponsive altar, and yet one could not help being touohed by such ear- nestness, and many a time as he had watched it he had prayed and wished that all evan- gelical Christians at home had as much fire as those people had. They (the Proteetants) had a great deal more light, but they wanted the fire as well. The old Latin proverb was often quoted, "Truth is mighty and must prevail." Certainly, but error awake was mightier than truth asleep, and error with his loins girded for action was mightier than truth reclining self-indulgently on couches. It was con- fidently stated that every department of lift now belonged to men of earnest purposo and the realm of faith in the Kingdom of God mots of all demanded such men. Therefore, zeal was the first thing needed. The second indispensable was knowledge, so that there might not be zeal which reminded him of those terrible bombardments of Mafeking that resulted, as reported, in one stray dog lamed, and one ooffee-pot cracked. He thought of the zeal which had been put forth by their bishops during the last two years in putting down what they called Romanising practices, incense, candles and the rest. The zeal had been tremendous—searching inves- tigation and explanation and expostulation and interminable pronouncenmenta upon con- ftubstantiation, transubstantiation and re- servation, the unearthing of documents, and quoting of ancient precedents—a display of inexhaustible learning burning with ve- hemence and indignation, warnings and promises, beseeohings and employing, of tears for two years. And the total result, as re- ported so far, one candle snuffed out, one incense can overturned, one confessional box slightly shaken, and one meek curate driven through fright into a nunnery. Zeal enough had been wasted in the Churoh of Christ to win His final victory, if all the energy had instead been expended on really divine things things for which God cared and not offices and dignities, dogmas and petty sectarian differences. There had been much lament- table waste—a little went on still, but not so much, as they had learned more grace and wisdom at their Master's feet. He said that because there had been a book ("The Master Christian," by Marie Corelli) .which was be- ing widely read, written by a very popular authoress. It was a book on this subject, and was dedicated to the churches who were I spending their time in quarrelling in the name of Christ. Though it was mainly di- rected against the Romish Church, all the thurches were included in that terrible in- dictment, and it made one wish that those writers, like other people, would try to un- derstand the thirgs they wrote about, and make sure of their facts before they uttered their cruel charges. For he testified, in the presence of God, that that was untrue of the Evangelical Churches in this land to-day. They were not wasting their strength in a senseless fashion, but employing it for the real battle for Christ. At the same time, they all needed to learn more perfectly what things were worth fighting foi-what things should call forth their righteous indignation. It was pitiable, for example, to see what snail matters men and women wrangled about in life—private life and even church life. There were quarrels in the church over atoms of dust-no more. Things divided the church at times, and divided good men and women in the church, which were not worth a grain of sand, or a moment of thought. See what furious contention Was stirred up in the church at times by a word, hastily dropped, and perhaps hastily recalled, or about the rendering of an anthem or the singing of "Amen," or the wine at the Lord's table—especially that. And, he said in pass- ing, on the question of the use of w:nf> that he would y;f1]d, without a moment's hesita- tion, to the conscience which was in the least decree offen^d. and would TIS" water, syrupy lime juice, vinegar and almost vitriol rather than divide a church on that question, and make the Lord's table a table of strife and contention. Such little questions of personal conduct and preferences he characterised as mere soap bubbles, so feeble that the faintest trace of love breathing on them would dis- solve them into vapour. He heard Christian men say at times—sometimes Christian min- isters, which was worse—"I am in the right, and I will fight this matter out." And he answered, "Yes, but what if you are, your right is a hideous wrong if you push it to the bitter end." For himself, though he had learned in school that two and two made four, and had it confirmed in college, he would be willing to concede to some earnest brother that two and two made four and a fraction-even four and a half-if, by so do- ing, he could bring him into the fold. He believed a good deal in Baptist and in Con- gregationalisrJi and a good deal in Metho- dism, and he believed in a few other isms, but really there was not one single ism that was worth the least bit of consecrated fury. Those were things to be talked about calmly and discussed with charity. Naturally, he thought the Baptists and the Congregation- alists the best "people in the world—especially the Baptists-but he had no burning eager- ness to make all the world Baptists, though they (the Baptists) needed inferior types if only to fill up the measure of their own civil- isation. There were, however, truths of the Gospel for which he believed he could die, and he could he thought, fight to maintain Protestantism, as he believed that was worth all their zeal and worth dying for. In conclu- sion, the preacher emphasised the striving after higher things, and leaving what he called "infinitesimal trifling" alone. Special hymns and anthems were sung dur- ing the day, led bv the Mount Pleasant choir, Mr. D. Thomas (Castle-street), conductor and organist' and the collections, which amoun- ted to between JB160 and JB170, are to be de- voted towards liouidating the chapel debt incurred principally on account of the Gorse- lane and Madoc-street buildings.
PAINFUL DEATH AT GOWERTON. A DEACON EXPIRES IN CHAPEL. A painful sensation was caused on Sunday last at Bethel Calvinistic Methodist Chapel. Mr. David Morgan, of Penfoday Fach. a dea- con, greatly respected and widely known ag the founder of the cause at Gowerton, en- tered the chapel a little late, and took his usual place just as a prayer was being said. At the conclusion of the prayer, it was no- tioed that he did not raise his head, and upon going to his assistance, he was found to be in an unconscious condition. He was at once removed to the vestry, and Dr. Da- vies was sent for. Upon his arrival life was found to be extinct. The deceased was 86 years old last Christmas Day, and although old in years was a very active member, hav- ing been choir leader to many choirs in the district. He led the singing at Bethel up to quite recently, and his death has caused pro- found regret. A verdict of death from na- tural causes was returned at the inquest held before Mr. F. H. Glynn-Price on Tuesday. -i
A curious request has been ruade to the Chatham Board of Guardians by a man of 23 years of age, who asked that he might be provided with a wife. The applicant stated that he desired to enter the matrimonial state, but he did not want to err by making a bad selection. He should, he added, have every confidence in a bride recommended by the guardians. The board decided that it was not within their province to act in the matter. Thtirsday was "Barge Day" at Neweastle- on-Tyne, and, following ancient custom, the Mayor and Corporation sailed in a procession of four gsilv-decorated steamers and two old state barges to claim the coil oT". the River Tyne. A largr crowd attended the landing. and after reading the customary proclama- tion. the Mayor selecled a young lady from the crowd, and. standing on the boundary stone, kissed her and presented her with a sovereign. Anofber young !;ldy was kissed on th° sirr-e tørplS bv the sheriff, pnd the Mavorecs—showing t^er0 w>s no i'l-wi1!— presented the Mayor's kissee with a handsome satchel.
CENTRAL WELSH BOARD. ANNUAL REPORT.—SATISFACTORY PROGRESS. The eighth half-yearly conference of the Central Welsh Board opened at Llangollen, North Wales, at noon on Friday, before an influential and representative assembly of members. Mr. Humphreys Owen was elected chairman. Principal Veriamu Jones (Cardiff) resigned the vice-chairmanship through illness. Pro- fessor Anwyl: Aberystwvth University Col- lege, was elected to fill the vacancy. The Chairman reported with satisfaction that King Edward had graciously accepted the Chancellorship of the University of Wales, and the board conveyed their best wishes, trusting his Maiesty would always endeavour to further Welsh education.

The Chairman announced that the Cardiff Corporation had generously offered the board a valuable plot of ground in Cathays Park. Cardiff, for the site of the new Central Board offices. The donors trussed the site would be a direct advantage to Wales. The Board, through the chairman, expressed thanks for the munificent gift, and the matter was re- ferred to, the Executive-Committee. In a letter from the Cardiff Cvmmrodorion Societv emnhaais was laid on the bonrd en- couraging the Welsh language and Welsh his- torv and literature throughout Wales. Even- tuallv it was resolved to refer the matter to the Executive Committee. Considerable discmesion took place on the nronosal to transmit to county governing bodies of Wales and Monmouthshire charges recentlv introduced rrf-o the Board of Educa- tion directory. The Hon.

The annual renort orf the Board expresses regret at the sevran^e of relations between the board and the Charitv Commissioners, nlthousrh welcoming the change effected under the Order in Council of August last as a Aten towards the entab'ishmerit of a comnletelv organ'Ofd system of education in Enerland and Wales. During last vear the number of students attending the 94 schools in con- nection with he board was 7,445. of whom 3,799 were bovs and 3 646 were cirls. Tin's was an increase as compared with the 7.390 attending P3 schools in 1^99 and the 6.912 attending 89 schools in 18P8. The numbers included 3.877 bovs and 5513 girla in IPQQ. and 3 6*7 bovs JlTlll 3.275 girls in 1K98.

PAINFUL TRAGEDY AT UHOSSILL. A LADY'S MYSTERIOUS END. The delightful summer retreat of Rhossili, Gower, was thrown into a state' of consider- able excitement on Thursday afternoon, in last week, when it became known that Miss Elizabeth Thomas, aged 50, had left home l'nd had not returned. A search party was organised, and Miss Thomas's body was dis- covered on the beach at Fall Bay, but whe- ther she had fallen over the cliffs, some 120 feet in height, or had been shut in by the tide, and thep drowned, could not be said for certain at this time. Miss Thomad, since the death of her father, who died recently and left each of the four members of the family JB300, had lodged with her sister, Mrs. Beynon, of Middletou, and is said to have been subject to fits of depression. THE INQUEST. The inpuest was opened on Monday, before Mr. F. H. Glynn Price, district coroner. William Thomas, farmer, of Rhossili, iden- tified the body as that of his sister, who was fifty years of age, and unmarried. For the past two or three months she had lived with her sister at Middleton. On Thursday night last, when she was missed, witness, with some friends, orjj&nised a search party, and, with the aid of lights, found the body in a creek in the bay sometime after midnight. It was lying face downwards, and was in a com- posed attitude, deceased's dress being neither torn nor disarranged. The tide was at its full about four o'clook, and if deceased had gone straight down to the bay after she left the house about two o'clock, she could have got round the point into Fall Bay before the tide had reached it. If, however, she remained there for any length of time, she would have been shut in. Years ago deceased was in the habit of going down to Rhossili Sands to ga- ther driftwood, but latterly she had not been strong enough to do so, though a week ago she expressed a desire to go down to the beach to collect some. From the appearance of the body, witnesss thought the tide had over- flowed it, and expressed the opinion that de- ceased must have been shut in by the tide in. mediately she reached the creek. She had frequently complained of pains in the head, but witness thought she could have realised the danger of being shut into the bay. Mrs. Beynon, sister of the deceased, said deceased had lived with her since her fa- ther's death a few months ago. It was de- ceased's habit to go out after dinner to the rickyard, but on the day in question she went further. When she did not return to tea as usual, witness thought she had gone to Rhossili. Replying to a juryman, witness said she had noticed nothing in deceased's conduct that would tend her to suppose that deceased would do a. rash act. Ernest Chalk, farm labourer of Middleton, deposed to seeing deceased walking in the di- rection of Fall Bay on the day in question. George Beynon, farmer, of Middleton, said he was with the search party when the body was discovered. The body was lying, witness added, in a composed attitude. The face was bruised slightly, but no limbs were broken. The clothes were wet. Deceased's hat and shawl were missing, but two days later witness found the hat on a ledge of lock about ten feet above the beach, and wit- ness was of the opinion that it had never reached the beach. It was on the east side of the creek. A juror observed that that was very singu- lar, and expressed the opinion that the hat must have fallen from deceased's head, and that she had fallen over the cliff whilst at- tempting to recover it. Replying to the Coroner, witness said the east would be the side on which anyone who found himself shut in by the tide would at- tempt to escape. The shawl was found about forty yards out in the Bay in a line with the body. The Coroner, in summing up, sympathised at the outset with the relatives, and stated that there was no evidence to show how de- ceased came by her death. The theory that the woman had fallen over the cliff was im- probable, for in that case she would have been dashed to pieces among the rocks; the more probable theory was that deceased's hat had fallen off, and that deceased was over- taken by the tide whilst attempting to re- cover it by way of the creek. The jury returned an open verdict of found dead.

COMMERCIAL TRAVELLERS' ASSOCIATION. ANNUAL DINNER OF SWANSEA BRANCH. SPEECHES BY SIR JOHN LLEWELYN MR. AERON THOMAS AND OTHERS. The annual dinner of the South Wales and Monmouthshire Commercial Travellers' Associa- tion (Swansea Division) was held at the Hotel Metropole on Saturday evening. As usual the arrangements were excellent; they included a. brief but appropriate toast list, a splendid pro- gramme of music, and a good menu. Mr. T. Edgar John, the hon. sec., received many congratulations that he thoroughly deserved them thoee who know his thoroughness and energy will readily admit. Sir John T. D. Llewelyn, president of the Swansea Division, occupied the chair, and was supported at the cross table by the Worshipful Mayor (Mr. W. Watkins), Alderman J. Aeron Thomas, M.P.. Mr. Griffith Thomas (chairman Harbour Trust), Aid. M. Tutton, Mr. Joseph Hall, J.P., Mr. W, Weaver, Lt.-Col. J. W. Williams (1st G.V.A.), and Mr. G. P. Davies (chairman of Committee). The dinner was admirably served by the manager of the Hotel Metropole. The Secretary (Mr. T. Edgar John) who was warmly received, read letters regretting unavoid- able absence. The President was heartily applanded on rising to submit "H.M. King Edward VII., and H.M. Queen Alexandra." The toast was received with musical honours, Ald. J. Aeron Thomas M P., who was most cordially received, gave "His Majesty's Forces." He said it was always a pleasure to him to join, he commercial travellers at any of their meet- ing?. They were a class of men of whom Swansea might well be proud, and amongst whom he reckoned a large number of friends. The toast entrusted him had been designated by many names in the past, but never so briefly, significantly, and comprehensively. He supposed "His Majesty's Forces compiised ministers of all denominations, together with the army. navy and auxiliary forces. They all highly appreciated the services of those who were work- ing, zeilously, sincerely and with a single purpose, for the spiritual and moral welfare of the community. (Hear, hear.) There was plenty of room to differ they did not fail to exercise thpir right to differ, and he hoped the day was far off when they would cease to exercise that right. (Applause). They were all proud of the Navy's giand record—from the days of Nelson down to the present day. The "handy-man" was much en evidence during the defence of Lady^mith, and the part he took in preventing the enemy torn over-runt ing and holding Natal was known throughout the world. (Applause). Just now much difference of opinion existed as to the re < rm of the Army, and he had the pleasure and privilege of hearing Mr. Winston Churchill's -pe< ch in the House of Commons. The member for Oldham set forth his views on the vexed Army question with -uch force and eloquence that he (tue speaker) was greatly impressed. The speech was generally pronounced to be worthy of the House of Commons—to be a great speech in .very sense of the word. Winston Chu chill spoke as the worthy son of a worthy sire; he enunciated views which he (Mr. Thomas) hoped would receive very careful consideration at the hands of the people of this country. (Hear, Lear). With regard to the volunteers a great deal more could he Hone for them. Lieut.-Col Williams (1st G.V.A ) responded. He said he was proud of the work done by volunteers. It was very plea*ing to know that they not only took part in the defence, but in the relief, of Mafeking. (Hear, hear.) Mr. Tom P. Parsons, in an interesting speech, submitted "The County Borough and Commerce of Swansea. He said he had been in Swansea 14 yeai s, and he had every reason to be proud of the town of his adoption. One heard nowadays too tnu -h of the croaking criticism which seemed in- capable of seeing any redeeming feature in the town. No town was absolutely perfect; there was always ample room for improvemeut, but < there was no denying the fact that Swansea bud improved of late years, and was still improving. 1\1r. Parsons referred to the widening of Castle- strf-et, the electric tram service, Swansea on the main liue, Cray Water Works, the proposed new duck, the market, &c., and to the splendid ser- vices rendered the town by the Mayor, Mr. Griffith Thomas, aud Mr. Tutton. It was a matter for regret and surprise that Castle-street, wiiich was considered as being too narrow in tbe sixteenth century, was tolerated at tue dawning of the nineteenth century. (Hear, hear.) They were now able to see what the town had lost in allowing the electric tram service to be worked by a private firm. The Mayor, in responding, said he had always regarded commercial travellers as the guardian angels of commerce. For that reason he was glad to be with them that evening. (Applause and laughter.) Mr. Griffith Thomas responded, and at the out- set referred in complimentary terms to the efforts made by the Corporation to better the town. They were told that Mr. Tutton was one of the coterie. Well, Mr. Tutton was an able man of business, and he had always seemed to have the interests of the ratepayers at heart. With respect to placinsr Swansea on the main line, he (Mr. Thomas) considered it was a matter of the g> eate»t importance, and would soon recoup the Great Weston Railway Company for their expenditure in bringing the change about. (Applause.) He maintained, however, that something would have to be effected in order to meet the requirements of the trade when the new dock was opened. The new dock was, to his mind, a neoess ty, and it was only proper that they in Swansea, should make provision for accommodating the extra tonnage that was being built. It was patent to everybody's mind that, unless such provision were made, the trade of the port would become stagnant. (Hear, hear.) They had undoubtedly done the right thing in deciding upon making a dock capable of accommodating any of the great leviathans which were now afloat. (Cheers,) In conclusion. Mr. Thomas expressed the opinion that there was a gieat future for Swansea, and that aU thq twas required now to reduce the rates was to induce manufacturers to come to the district and build their works. (Applause.) Aid. Morgan Tutton also responded, and claimed that, as a Corporation, they were doing all they could in the interests of the ratepayers. With regard to the widening of Castle-street, they were doing their best in the purchasing of property, and only last week acquired a large portion of property on the left side of the street. Referring to the Harbour Bill, he said it was a very rare thing to, get a Biltlike that through a committee unopposed, and he thought it was a performance that would redound to the credit of all concerned. (Applause.) The President gave the toast of the evening, Our Institutions, and the South Wales and Monmouthshire C. T. A. and in doing so said he considered they had conferred an honour upon him in electing him to the position he occupied. He recognised the difficulties of the post, and th« fact that he followed in the footxteps of Mr. B. Evans. The Association had his hearty support; it had done a great deal of good work. They had passed through their jubilee, which took place in 1899. Their efforts then, he trusted, had stimulated many to join the ranks. The Asso- ciation was doing a good work 385 annuitants were supported at an estimated oopt each year of jEl.167, and upwards of £221,000 had already been paid in pensions to 720 annuitants. In 1900 the institution had materially advanced numeri- cally and financially, as he pointed out. He hoped they would continue their efforts and advance in the line of progress, as they were doing. (Applause.) Sir John referred to the education of children at Pinner, and appealed to them all to maintain ft at establishment and the association, which had his thorough support. (Applause.) Mr. G. P. Davies, chairman of committee, responded. He said that branfthes were established at Cardiff and Swansea 12 years ago and at Newport las' year. The membership con- tinned to increase, and last year 28 members were enrolled, raisitg the total to 228 members. Competition in the 'election to the nstitutions was now keener than ever, and for this reason people in South Wales should render support. They were now considering the advisability of a be"* volent fund. Mr. W. G. Davies and Mr. Owen Owen also responded. Mr. Thomas Jones proposed Our President." He said that ao an Association they had been exceptionally fo tunate in securing Sir John Llewelyn as thdr president. He assured Sir John that n" body of men oould be m >re thank- ful for fllvou's received thun the body to wh ch be belonged. He had no speci ■! fitne-s 10 propose the toast, excepting that he as a Libei al and Nonco formist. The virtues of their president's '•haraeter we e entirely apart and above con- sidera'ions of tarty or 3ect. He was tolo that he was a i-ound Cl unihman and a good T ry. He liked a Chu'chman to be sound and a Tory t., be g- od—(cheers)—t>ut personally he would have looked upon hIm as n Christian gentleman. From t'lxt lofty stan poi t all other considerations vanis' ed away like 'bemist bef re the rising sun. He was deserved y one of thA m st popular alld us ful men hl the f'olmty.

As a W. lsbman he must r tV to bis service to Wales Hs a mem er of the Land < ommission, *n he regretted that h- w". not in Parliament to support the Bill thai was "b ut to be introduced, b&Red on the recommendations of that Commission. (Hear, bear.) He wished Sir John and Lady Llewelyn a loner life of usefulness. Whether he would be called in the future to serve his country in connection with local affairs or in the Parliament of the people, or whether he would be called—as he deserved to be called — to the Upper House — (cheers) he was confident of one thing: that that service, wherever it would be rendered, would be inspired by a strong sr-nse of onty, and an ardent desire to do erood. ( Applause.) Other toasts followed, and daring the evening the following programme ot' music was gone through Instrumental trio, "Zwei L»ichte" (Carl Bohn). Messrs. W. H. Hoare, E. Hulle.v and D. T.

SWANSEA DIVORCE ACTION. DECREE GRANTED A LOCAL LADY. A Swansea divorce action, Fitness v. Fit- ness, came on for hearing before the Presi- dent of the Divorce Court on Monday. Mrs. Fitness, who resides in Swansea, petitioned for a divorce on the grounds of adultery and cruelty. Mr. Llewelyn Williams (instructed by Messrs. Lloyd and Rowlands, of Swansea) appeared for the petitioner. The parties were married at Fulham, in October, 1893. The respondent at that time was an official in the War Office. Dr. Phillips and Maud Jameson proved acts of cruelty in 1899, when the parties resided in London, and P.C. Brooks gave evidence as to adultery in Swan- sea in August, 1900. The Court granted the petitioner a "decree nisi," together with the custody of the child—the issue of the mar- riage.

TERRIBLE KENT TRAGEDY FOUR CHILDREN MURDERED. The riverside suburb of Charlton, in Kent, was the scene on Sunday evening of a ter- rible crime, the news of which reached Lon- don in a mesage whose curt brevity intensi- fied the horrors of the tragedy. Subsequent inquiries proved conclusively that the report was, unhappily, without exaggeration. Four children had been shot to (leatb-three girls and one youth—and a fourth girl was so se- verely wounded that little hope was enter- tained of her survival. Charlton-lane is one of the principal streets n the residential quar- ter of Old Charlton, and No. 63 was occu- pied by a soldier returned from the front, Sergeant-Major Butler, his wife, and six children, whose ages varied from a lad of eighteen to an infant in arms. It was in this dwelling, a house of eight or nine rooms, that the tragedy occurred. Shortly after seven o'clook a next-door neighbour was startled by the sudden appearance of Mrs. Butler at her back entrance. The poor woman, wild- eyed and terror-stricken, was clutching her baby in her arms. She told in gasps a ter- rible story, to the effect that her husband had turned a loaded revolver on his whole family. So far as could be gathered, Butler had fired successively at his five eldest chil- dren, and his wife only escaped by instant flight. Seizing her infant, she rushed through the passage to the back, fled across the gar- den, and struggled over the dividing wall— some three or four feet high-into the neigh- bour's ground. A few minutes sufficed to ap- prise a policeman on duty close by of what had happened, and he. with two comrades, hastened to the house. Whatever anticipa- tions of a violent resistance may have oc- curred to them were speedily set at rest. Butler, making no attempt either at resis- tance or escane, quietly submitted himself a prisoner. The officers had to face a worse ordeal. Stretched at their feet lay the bodies of five children, four daughters and an older lad, alike bleeding from wounds and giving no sign of life. Examination proved that each one had been shot in the body with such fatal directness that otaly one, the eldest girl Grace, was still breathing. With all speed and care she wag conveyed to hospital; where at a later hour her condition was re- ported to be precarious, the bullet having pentrated the region of the heart. One by one the bodies of the four remaining victims were reverently lifted into the passage, and laid down side by side. Their names were Edric Butler, aged about 18; Lilly Butler, Gladys Butler, and Hilda Butler. Nothing transpired to throw any light on the cause of the tragedy. So far as inquiries in the neighbourhood could go, the Butlers lived quietly and in modest comfort and nothing known of the history of the arrested man.
BETTER BE SAFE THAN SORRY. We may hear of some wonderful cure ef- fected. at a time when the patient's case seemed hopeless, how incredulous we often are at such times, and if overtaken by illness, we are apt to go on in the old hum- drum way, just because of our unbelief, but depend unou it. you had better be safe than sorrv, and if you are suffpring from general weakness, nervousness, and T)rostratio^ with disinclination to work, without being down- right ill. the safest, the surest, and the most Fiitisfactorv remedv is "Gwilvm Evans*" Quinine Bitters.
