MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1391 NOTES & COMMENTS The organ of the Liberation Society is more hearty in its defonre of Welsh Non- conformity than Welsh Nonconformists are generous in their support of the society. Some weeks ago the fact that the sum total subscribed to the funds of the lalter from all Wales in a month w::s less than a sovereign gave the KCoffers a chance to make sport of the unremitting zeal of Welsh disestablishes. This seems to have hurt and moitiiic J the editor of the Liberator, who, in the current issue evades the real p-jint by directing the attention of •' th se too hasty journalists to the fact t Lhat the Welsh JD'sestablishmenfe rartv, I having exhausted one campaign fun l, have now commenced raising another for I carrying on the war both in England and I Wales, and that it is reported that sub- scriptions are flowing in." This statement of the Liberator raises two points of interest apart from that which originated the controversy. It is an undeniable fact that one campaign fund has been exhausted. But how, where, and by Mrhom ? Some JE1,700 was collected in I South Wales. Every sou of it has gone apparently, but up to the present the pre- cise destination of the money is unknown even to those who subscribed. N" balance- sheet has been furnished to them, and no balance-sheet is likely to be ever seen. Appeals have been made for it in private and in public without producing the slightest effect. In ordinary business aii'-tirs such conduct would be regarded as intolerable, but commercial laws are, it I would neem, suspended in polities, and the only alternative left to reasonable subscribers is to profit by expetience and tighten the necks of their money-bags when the party send ithe hat around. Closely connected with the administra- tion of the first fund is the failure to float the second with any degree of success. We may have no sympathy with the objects inteuded to to. served by the fund, and may feel. no particular anxiety as to the disposal of the tolls levied on the wealthier members of he party who have to pay in meal or malf for distinctions given to or I, Loped for b^ them. But it does seem a J ahajae tiij^ be zeal of men who can ill- spare their shillings and sovereigns should be exploited in this fashion, and that the subscribers in the end should be denied even the satisfaction of knowing how their money has been spent. The Liberator has somewhere found it reported that subscrip- tions are "flowing in." Not in the Welsh press, where more than one writer is now wrestling with the problem why the fund has failed to catch on. Since the 24th August the organ of Welsh Liberalism has been making daily appeals to Welsh Nonconformists to take "prompt and instant action by subscribing. What has been the result up to date ? Less than JE800 has been promised, though each subscriber is offered the daily adver- tising of his generosity—no small considera- tion to the aspiring solicitor or enterprising tradesman. Of the JE800 Messrs. Cory Bros, giveJE200 and Mr. D. A. Thomas £100; there are three subscribers of £50 and four of £25. So that £550, or nearly three-fourths of the total sum, has been given by ten persons, and about 70 persons contribute the remaining £250. This, then, is (the practical response to an appeal to Welsh Nonconformity for help in pushing forward Dis- establishment. Over half the t.m has been contributed by English, Scotch, and Irish people, and three only of the Welsh Liberal members have sent a penny. What inference are we to draw from these figures r Is the failure to raise a respectable fund due to distrust of the party organization or to wÎnt of genuine feeling in favour of Dises- tablishment. or is failure the effect of both factors working together P When Mr. Asquith's Welsh Bill came to be examined, observes the Pall Mall Gazette, some of the Welsh patriots found certain grievous inequalities which at once proclaimed themselves as a decided weak- ness in the measure. The Natimal Church is at some pains this month to rub in the facts and assist Welsh electors to understand that many of them will get nothing from the Dili. The seizure of the Church tithe may by welcome enough in rural districts, but what will the busy towns fay when they fully understand that they will get little or nothing ? Cardiff, for example, will have to squander an additional income of £l3G: Swansea will get £J4: and Aberdaru will not on £ 68; Lianelly and Aberystwith will take not a farthing of these spoils. The Libera- tionist lecturers and writers revel in des- cribing the beneficent purposes to which the alienated tithe will be put, and in de- fending that alienation as a boon to the poor. With admirable caution they refrain from pointing out that the places where hospitals, libraries, and other insti- tutions are most needed have littie or no tithe to seize." The parties to the dispute at the Fox- hole Works have given effect to a sugges- tion mads on Wednesday last by the Post in splitting the difference." A sum of I £200 is to be paid to the employers—pre- sumably by the Tinplaters' Union—and the works are to restart as soon as possible with the standard rate of wages. So thaf, after all, tho negotiations which we announced eight or nine days ago have resulted in a compromise which recognises the breach of con tract by the men, but does not penalise them to the extent covered by the magisterial decision. We are sincerely glad the sore has been healed. This is not the time to have disputes in the tin-plate trade, when it is slowly emerging from the wilderness after sojourning there ] many trying days. Gooilluck-whlch is generally another name for good management-Is helping the Lianelly National Eisteddfod in a marked degreo. The chief choral competition will probably establish a record. Choirs from Swansea, Cardie, Carmarthen, Merthyr, Dowhiis, Rhymney, and the Rhondda are already entering upon the preliminary work, and an intimation has just loen received that the famous Carnarvon combination is determined to be there. A choir from Scranton is a possibility—almost a cer- tainty. The objection urged to the test pieces by Mr. Dan Davies as too similar in character and affording little scope for delicacy and refinement in singing does not meet with general support in musical circles. One competent musician—his name would carry weight if disclos2d- assured a representative of the Posi a day or two ago that Mr. Dan Davies's criticism was founded on an imperfect knowledge of the circumstances. The Eisteddfod authorities hadt make their selection with due regard to the fa-t that each choir was to sing tc an orchestral accompaniment. Such an accompaniment would not suit a glee cr part song. Far from departing I" from utagc in excluding the latter and selecting three choruses, the Lianelly Com- mittee are repeating what was done at the highiy-successful Swansea National Eisteddfod.
SEIUOL'S ACCIDENT AT SWANSEA. I A man named Tiiomas Pugsiey, a.ged 47, of Caswell-aire?!, walked over the )-ca, wall .<, the back of the South Dock last (Sunday) nql.t, and was severely injured, li s thigh bein^ iractured. He is now in the hcswUal. Pugs.'ey, it seems, w.:s in tha company of some friends, and was calling their aUentioi) to the ligblhouse, at the same time pointing In that direction, when he disappeared over tho wall, i'i e tide was receding at the lime, and it is believed, bis fall was par;ly broken by the water. Hts trends quickly i us' eJ to his assistance, and prceurcd a stretcher. P.C. Williams and Carter conveyed the poor fellow to the Hospital, where we learn he is doing as well as can Ie expected.
THECONDITIONOF LANDOKE. A MUNICIPAL CANDIDATE COMPLAINS. I "I have made it a. point during the last] week, said Mr. Hopkln John t I a Posi re- porter, to go over the Landore Ward. Ld I any impartial couneil'or do the same and he will inevitably come to the conclusion that ¡ Landore is one o the most n^.le. ted wa> ds intho town. In fr.et, the condition of the Landore streets an i roads at the presen: niomentarein themselves a danger '0 the health of the whole community. It is true ¡ that Landore is altogether inhabited by wok- men, bat many of these have made splendid use of the building societies and, through thrift, become the possessors of their own houses. Now, not ing lias been done in the way of making loads; consequently the workiiu men have had to p vy rases without getting any advantage v/liatever for their pav- ments. In other wards, even if r'lo:.d,; aro not made, light is placed wherever there is I danger. But in Landore, workmen ) ave to tramp on dauc winter mornings through pkces in which a stranger would certainly break his neck—places without light,but with large pools of water impossible to avoid. Many tin-platt-rs, who have to stand the groat heat of the mills, and the close atmosphere o the tinhouses, linve ofttimes to pass eight or twelve hours in their wet doihes. Is not that in itself a rearou why the workingmen of Landore should use their powerand amelio- .1 rate theso things in the interest of tbem- wives and of the coauaunltv ? v >e — —

THE FOXHOLE DISFUTE. A SETTLEMENT ARRIVED AT. The Foxhole dispute has at last been settled. It will be remembered that 49 men I had signed an undertaking to work for six months at the Foxhole Tin-plate Works at 15 per cent. below the standard. When the men found the mistake they had made tney repudiated the agreement, and the result' was that the owners of the works claimed damages to the extent of, with costs, nearly £,0::>. With respect to twelve, the magistrates gave damages on the proportion; aud the remaining sum- monses were to be hoard next Wednesday. In the meantime the directors offered to accept £250 in payment of their claims, and the executive of the men's union offered £150. On Saturday a representative of the Union met the directors and agreed to split the dif» fei ence, and so the remaining summonses will bo withdrawn and £200 paid in full settlement.

Silt,—-My attention has been called to the polite and gentlemanly remarks contained in a letter which appeared in Saturday's Post over the signature of A Temperance (?) Ad- vocate." The letter is headed, 'A reply to I Alderman Freeman's Attack." What i, really eppears to be is a one-sirip.d re-statement of an application made to the Licensing Com- mit'. ee ut the last Brcwt-ter Ses-ions. 1 am not concerned with the defence of Mr. Alderman Freeman; he is able to defend himself when the necessity arises. As the temperance barrister, advocate, solicitor, &c., all rolled into one," I cannot refrain from calling the attention of another "tem- perance advocate' to two state- ments made by him which bappjn to be true. ilpretheyarc. First, that the letter was written bv him, and read, sir, by the great host of Post readers, whilst t e case referred to wag sub judice secondly, that h.id the learned "teulpera:1co (P) advocate so dealt with a case pending in the High Court, in tea-d of the court belcw, he would have rendered himself open to a charge of contempt of court. I thank "T A.' for teaching me those words Let him read, for his own benefit, the advice he has so readily offered to others; then he will perhaps realise the full measure of the indecency of publishing such an cx-parle statement cf r. case which is yet sub judice. One other point, if you will allow me, sir. and then I w, Ii have finished, at all events whilst tho case is sub judu-e. T.

Freeman and Co.).and one at the Incorporated L "w Soc etv. Were 1 inclined, and did the law nljow, I should refrain d'cm appearing on behalf of that learm d and well-able-to-t ike-care-of- i self body. It can answer any question put to it for itse f. But as bar- lris!er, aJvocate, solicitor, etc., all roiled i'to one,' and seeing that the qucs- j jtion address 1 to the temperance party isi I associated with my name. 1 dare venture to j answer it—when the ca e referred to is no louder sub jiidic> II In the meanwhiic, may I respectfully ask T.

1 SUPPOSED MAN- SLAUGHTER. -+. PAUPERS QUARREL AT NEATH. DEATH OF ONE OF THE COMBATANTS. On Thursday last an incident happened in the casual ward of the Neath Workhouse, j which at first was considered but a trivial < affair. Since, however, one of the parties has died, the circumstances connected with I his death are such as to arouse suspicions. Accurate det iils of the quarrel which took place between James Prichard (whe has I since died) and Robert ltiehards are pro- bably not obtainable at this stage. Our Neath representative learns that the porter sent deceased for a teuciiet, and it appears that Richards was using the, artiele at the time. An altercation arose, and it is stated that Itichards struck the deceased a blow above the right eye, and blood flowed from the wound. Richards was at once taken to task. and Mrs Mills assistant matron, dressed the wound, which was not apparently of a very teri< us nature. The matron gave the olHender the opt-on of leaving the House or being given in charge. He chose the former, and left, Prichard, after the wound had been attended to, seemed in bis usual spirits, lie ate his meals during the day, but in the evening he had an attack of fits. He recovered Irom one, only to [ be quickly struck down by a second.I r~ui the lat er he never recovered, but died cn S\turday morning, his ago being G3. To- nio row altemooH an i.djourned inquest will be held, when the resn,t of a post mortem examination will be made known. Mrs. Mills says she knows very little respecting the quarrel. Neither, in her t elief, did the porter, who was rsponsiblc for the events which transpired in the casual ward. No one saw the biow struck, and no one beLev d that the wouhd was scriouf. 1:e cased was she addeJ, a polite inoliensive old iiuii). lie was \er> deaf and offered no explanation of the circumstances which culminated in the lolow. Of Richards's temper and conduct she has had occasion to oiten complain to the Board. The lh,dy of the deceased bears a discolourat.oa in the region of the right e\e, and there is a wound imn-jediateiy ovu' the eye. Tee left eye and b:de of the !uco were alto disr oiouied, and saggers that the deceased fell heavily after reeeiviug the blow. THE INQUEST. Mi1, llowel Cuthisci tson, coroner, held an inquest 0.\ the body at ti a .Neath Workhouse t is (Monday) afternoon. Mis. Mills stated that Prichard came to the Workhouse two years ago. He came from Gh ncorr>vg, and was a farm labourer, aged 63. On Saturday la.^t at one o'clock he expired. On the Thursday morning previous he was pushed down by Robert Richards, au inmate in the tramp wards. She had >iaee turned Richards out of the Wor house. A'ter I the occurrence Prichard appeared to be well. The cut above the right eye which he sustained was a siicht one. Twelve hours alter he received the How lie had a fit, i to which he was subject. He had not had one for 13 months previous, when he recovered on Tour.-day last he drank apintofmiib. A few minutes later he had a second fit, from which he did not recover. Five minutes eforo death he threw up a quantity of bio id. Mr. ifowel Cuthlertson then stated that it was necessary to have a post mortem ex- amination. A Jurjmai! suggested that it would be better that the examination shouid be contra- dicted by un independent doctor. Toe Coroner then requested P.S. Price to ask Dr. Lewis to conduct the post-mortem examination and the inquest was adjourned until Tuesday afternoon.
