DOWN TO THE WASP. I ♦ IN THE DEPTHS OF THE SEA. THE DIVERS REPORT. TUG STRUCK ON THE STARBOARD [OUR dp E CU,L WITH THB S*4KCH PARLY. | A faint suggestion of dawa revealed the outline of iCilvey A 11 when MR. Edward Stroud, the diver of the Swansea Harbour Trust, stood on the wharf at the South Dock early this (Saturday) morning to set out on his fourth attempt to descend to the wreck of the ill-fated Wasp. Daybreak had become more marked Mr. Mr. Stroud accompanied by Mr. Bob Jones, one of the part-owners OF the Wasp, and a number ei Harbour Trust employes had got aboard the pilot boat Mary, uuder the cejsimaud of Captain Sevan, and were I scudding merrily before a crisp north wind towards the Mumbles Head. Amidships was piled the gear which would be used by Mr btroud to descend to the channel, including. the air-pump and the well-known, grini- lookinjj helmet, with its large discs of glass* Two pressmen who were amcng the party had, after infinite labour in arranging ropes, lenders, and other deck furniture, succeeded in making for themselves the most uncom- fortable resting-place on board, but were compensated by the exquisite picture which the rising sun had begun to paint across the heavens. By the time the Mumbles Head was reached the distant lights of Swansea were altogether robbed of ¡ their brilliancy by the flood of light which had filled the whole horizon. Tha day was by no means an unsuit- able one for the diving operations. The high north wind, which had for the last three or four days converted May into March, had dropped down to a useful breeze, TAKBN IN TOW. While passing ever the Mixen Sands the tug Fawn, which had by now taken us in tow, joined us in a somewhat vigorous dance over a strong swell; otherwise the sea was practically calm, and when at last, after a couple of hours sailing, we get near the site of the wreck, almost directly opposite Laug- land Bay, there was but little agitation of the waters. Tiie tug, Cambrian, which had preceded us. was sailing around in A circle, searching for the buoys, which had been affixed by grappling irons to the wreck. Owing to the tide not being as yet at its lowest ebb the buoys were submerged and it took an hour's look-out to find them. Once one of the men on the Mary drew attention to what looked hke the body of a man, but which eventually turned out to be a sailor's mattress. A few minutes later another small blacli object was sighted, but was afterwards discovered to be a sea fowl bobbing up and down In the sea. At last, however, the buoys were found, and after about another hour of mauu vei ing with I anchors and much hauling and slacking of roper, the Mary was moved directly OVER THE SITE OF THE WKECK, with a rattling rope communicating in a perpendicular line between it and a stay on board the Mary. It was now nearing seven o'clock, and Mr. Stroud, after satisfying him- self that all arrangements were com- ^JIETE, commenced to don the curious diving cestume, a process which was bv no means uninteresting. At five minutes to seven. He stood at the side of the Mary, a buiky, shapeless iigure, with a head like that of some weird prehistoric aiiimal, and connected by a rubber pipe with the pumping machine, which was now in motipn. The genial Mr. Edwards of the Harbour Trust, who always superin- tends Mr. Stroud's diving operations, stood leaning over the side holding what was practically the key of the divers life—the airpipeand life-line. In response toa. sharp command every man extinguished his pipeand
BURNING FATALITY AT LLANELLY. I SERVANT GIRL SUCCUMBS TO I LOCK-JAW. The death occurred on Thursdav afternoon at the Llanelly Hospital, of Esther Davies, 28 years, of Llanelly. The deceased woman I. was a servant in the employ of Mrs. A. J. Davies, 12, (,i-conficid-tei-raoe, Llanelly, and it will lie remembered by our readers that i she was most seriously burnt by her el,stlies igniting whilst she was lighting a fire. Frank Davies, son of Mrs. Davies, smothered the flames, but wa.s himself severely burnt. The woman was taken immediately to the hospital in a most critical condition, which culminated on Thursday in her death from lock-jaw and the burns which she sustained THE INQUEST, I Tha inquest on the body of the servant girl, Esther Davies. whose death took placo on the 16th of May, was held at the vestry of Capei Als on Friday. — Walter Davies, Llanelly, said he was the brother of the I deceased, who was a servant of Mrs Davies, 12, Greenfield-street, Llanelly. Alice Blanche Davies, 12, Greenfield-terrace, said deceased I resided at the house of her mother. OI, the 10 th May she heard screams from the kitchen, and rushing down she saw the deceased enveloped in Hamea. Hhe was rushing towards the stairs with her arms uplifteJ. "Witness asked her to lie on the ground, and endeavoured to extinguish the tiames by wrapping a towel round her. The 1 towel, however, soon was in flames, anci when she turned round to find some other article, I tha girl jumped up and ran out inlo the garden. The verdict returned was that death was due to lock-jaw and severe burns ¡ sustained. The coroner commended Mr. Davies for his courage in trying to stifle the flames.

CHAT WITH A SWANSEA DIVER, A DANGEROUS CALLING. DIVING FOR DEAD BODIES. The attempts that have already been made te GET to the wreck ef the Wasp has caused everybody in Swansea at the present time to be talking about diving. And natur- ally enough Stroud, the harbour diver, is therefore one of the lions of the hour, He is a genial and cheerful soui" writes a Post reporter, and a« familiar a figure as is to be found around the Swansea docks. The other day he teld me of his experiences, full fathom deep."—" I was born at Whitstable, he said in reply to a question frem me," and started diving in the open sea to wrecks when I was 18 years of age. 1 spent about tis: years in my native place and came to Swansea in January, 1875 so you see my experience under water extends over a period of a quarter of a century." "Wbitstable is the oyster place, isn't it ?" I interposed. 1 "Yes but it is just as famous for divers. 'Tis a curious fact that more divers hail from Whitsta.ble than anywhere else: and if a very great depth has to be descended they almost always send for a Whitstable man. During the six years that I spent there I went to wrecks all rouud the British coast. The first wreek 1 ever went down to in the open sea was efT Dungeness, in 14 fathoms of water. Then L went down off the coast of Scotland to the wreck of a barque eailed the Kensington, to get up the cargo or railway iron. Then I went cargo or railway iron. Then I went down to the Teaehcart, which had been sunk oft the>iore. She WAS a very big boat and we spent months in getting up her cargo. She lay about ten fathoms down. We worked at her for about four hour*A day, and stopped down about two hours at a time." lhat depth would be about equal to that in which the Wasp lies," 1 urged. Just about," responded Strond," but the current at the Mixou Sands is about twice er three times as strong as it was at the Nore. Among the other wrecks 1 went to were those of the Star of Ceylon in 12 fathoms, the Mendora in 24 fathoms, and a wreck off the Norfolk coast supposed to be the Seagull at I 25 fathoms. This, by the way, is the greatest depth L have ever been down, ana i only stayed there for twenty minutes-It was quite long enough." I Do ever feel bad going down to these I great depths." 1 never felt bad in the open sea at any depth, but once I went down a flooded pit some miles beyond Pontardulais. 1 was then dew u at a. depth or 154fi., aud stayed down for an hour and threequartees, I got very hot, bilt didn t feel how queer [ was till I got up again. As soon as 1 get up in the air 1 began TO FEEL as TN»IPLOTS a.1I a baby. I cuuh..ln.t use my limbs. There was a terrible HEAVINESS in INY body and head. My blood all seemed to have gone stagnant—it was a month or so before I thoroughly got well again," What is the longest TIME that you ever ¡ stayed below water In the North Dock I once stayed down I for seven honrs repairing the dock gate, and, of course, during that time I didn't have any- thing to eat or drink." You must have a goodly constitution," I uttered. "Well, yes; I suppose I have. With the exception of a slight attack of quinsy, I hardly ever had a day's sickness in my life. By the way, ou one occasion 1 was asked to go out to the Canary Islands to dive. The sunken steamer, Aifonse XII., lay in 160ft. I of water. Still she had 10 boxes of gold specie on board, eacb worth £10,000. Nme of these were recovered, but one remained below. IN the attempt to get this last blltx up one or tvva divers lost thair lives, and another was pulied up stark mad. They offered £5üO to any man who would get up the other boy, and I was asked to go, if I'd been unmarried J would have taken the job on but my wi:e and family didn't like the idoa of my going, so 1 could hardly Jo otherwise than stay at home. So far as 1 know that £ 10.0.0 box still remains attbe bottom of the sea.' A diver raving mad," 1 exclaimed. ,L From what cause From the terrible pressure. I mvself have helped to hold a diver down en the deck of a. ship because the pressure had affected his brain, it took six of us to heid him, but he got alright again in the course of a few hours. You see at 160ft, the pressure on the body is 671bs. on every square inch of body, and at half that depth it is over 30lb. On the square inch." Diving pays well, I suppose ?'' It does, certainly, and sometimes a man that has luck will be able to earn very large amounts in a very few weeks. In the matter of raising cargoes, divers are paid by com- mission, so much per cent. on the value of the cargo raised, according to the depth of the water. It's very often 30 or 40 per cent., but in very deep water as much as 50 per cent. will sometimes be paid. But say what ysu wii], we haven't easy lives, and the risks we run are otten terrible." Have you had any personal experiences of this sort ? ''The worst squeak I ever had WAS in the North DocL, Swanoea, when clearing out the road sluice. The water suddenly rushed in and forced me into the culvert and jam bed me in tight. I eouldjo i: move, for my head was shored down to the ground, and it took all tbe strength of the men on the quay above, by holding en to my lines, to keep me from being washed through tbe culvert. At length another sluice was closed, and I was released and brought up half conscious. I thought it waS all U P with me that time.' ï ou have often got up dead bodies, 1 expect V Eh, but that's a nasty job. Yes, I've done plenty of it. 1. went down to a barque called the Spirit of the Ocean, which lav oil" the Start Point in thn English Channel. Wet pulled 28 bodies out oithut wreck. But the most terrible wreck 1 ever went down to WAS that of THE Isorthfleet. a British sailing ship, that was run down off Dungenness SOME years ago. A frightful catastrophe was that, 400 lives being lost, and the way tho*E bodies were found in the cabins of that ship was most painful. We put cords round them for them to be hauled up to the surface."

GREAT FIGHT. -h_ BILLY SAMUELS V. PATSY PERKINS. A CONTEST FOR NO PRIZE. DETERMINED SET-TO. STOPPED BY THE POLICE. RESULT :—CLARET—LOCKED UP-A DRAW. The people who pay fer admission to the Swansea boxing salooDE have a genuine1 grievance against the propneters, who had the stupidity to engage in an encounter with tbe raw 'una in the open street, where all was visible to a crowd free, gratis, and for nothing without giving their regular patrons notice of the event! It is only the truth to say that the unrehearsed bout, if properly advertised and arranged, would have drawn together an assembly compared with which the admirers of Hooligan, Morgans, Sullivan, MKJarthy and Co. would have been a mere handful. It happened this way. Bill Samuels' boetb had been located in Swansea for some time, when Patsy Perkins set up his opposition show. This seems to have engendered bad feeling, which has been smouldering lor weeks. It was about eight o'clock last eight when the dangerous stuff burst into flame in High- ttreet; and as there were many people about it was only a few seconds' work for a decent, aized crewd to assemble. The affray took place in front of the photographic establishment of Mr. H. A. Chapman, and with such a prominent locale it was impos sible for the incident to escape observation. From what we can gather it appears that Perkins was talking to Hooligan, the local boxer, when Samuels came up. A dispute between Perkins and Samuels took place, the disagree- ment being of such an unpleasant nature that almost immediate recourse to nature's weapons followed. Fortunately for the peace, but unfortunately for the hopes of anyone who desired to see the combat pro- ceed to a finish, and thus afford a free demonstration of which was the better man, the pelice arrived on the scene when only two or three blows had been exchanged, and the combatants were taken into custody. Polica-eonstable Rosser was in the position of seeing the "seraph and lie at once took steps to put an end to it. This he did by seizing Perkins and Samuels was taken care of by Superintendent JAnes and Inspector Davies, whe also were close by. The natural consequence of all this was that Perkins and Samuels were escorted to the Goat-street Police-station, where they were detained, and informed that they could net be liberated until eleven o'clock. Their career to the lock-up was watched by a large crowd. Perkins did not appear to be any the worse for the encounter, but Samuels lost a slight quantity of "claret." They were accommodated with separate cells, and there awaited with equanimity the time fixed for their release. HOOLIGAN TELLS HIS YARN OF THE EVENT. The Swansea champion slogger Hooligan, who was an eye-witness .f a portion of the set-to, says:-—"1 was in High-street with Billy Sr..muel3 last evening. There had been a telegram on show in Billy's window, and it had mysteriously disappeared. Billy Samuels seemed to think, as it had reference to Pordy McCarthy, that it had been taken away by Patsy Perkins. The latter was going down street, and Billy, who seemed greatly annoyed, followed PaKy Perkins down High-street. When opposite Mr. Chapman's place he caught him up. 'Gí\'8 me that telegram,' cried Billy. Patsy retorted that lie wouldn't. By this time the men were clo&e together and seeing a row was imminent a big crowd quickly assembled. Samuels finding that Perkins wouldn't give up the telegram declared that he would make him, and rushing at him struck him a blow. Patsy squared up and then a fight ensued and Samuels got pretty well hit about I think from what I could see afterwards but as 1 wasn t close up I couldn't see the latter port of the affray very plainly, but I know that they were going at it pretty hotly when three "slops" came up and stopped them. Before that I don't think that any attempt was made to separate the men. A J.P. DESCRIBES THE FIGHT. Aid. H. A. Chapman might have viewed the fight from the summit of his verandah if he had been warned of the event coming off; but as it. was, his judicial eyesight was offended bv only a very brief spell of the encounter. In fact, from what the genial J.P-says the contest must have been of a very touch-and-go character, for directly his attention was attracted by the noise of the rumpus in the street be rushed to the door and the preservation of the peace, and saw the ether officially-robed guardians of that same abstract condition breaking into j the ring and parting the panting combatants. "And it took placr. just epposite your door?'' queried one of our staff, who spoke to the Alderman. !> Right against my portico," said Mr Chapman. And vou missed the little scrap?" asked the incredulous reporter. Well, I saw just the tail-end of (it" (with the accent, on the saw to distinguish it from the n'tss.) "There was Samuels with his face covered with blood, grabing at I Perkins; and Perkins with his dukes up, hitting out —- one, two, three; and the officers breaking through the ring of I spectators, and then it was all overdo the twinkling of an eye, and the two were off to the police-station. Pity they didn't manage the affair better the affair better You mean off somewhere in a quiet spot stakes, ropes, towels, sponges, and so on ? uOh, no, 1 mean it's a pity two r, vallhow- mcn can't r/.anage to work up interest in their shows without kicking up such a shine in the main street and running into custody.' Oh," said the reporter, somewhat dis- appointed. Then he started on another tac.. Who had the best of it ? The police, 1 should say. was tiie cute reply of the J.P. AS he winked und walked ot1. AFTER THE BAtl. WAS OVER. As eleven o'clock drew near a good number ot those interested in the affair streiled up to I the police-station, but it was a quarter past the hour before the foraia'.ities in coimer-tion with the taking of bail were commenced. There waS no lack of people ready und willing 13 to consent to forfeit £10 if the two belligerents fniied t-o appear at tbo Police- court at 10 o'clock this (Saturday) morning, to answer a charge of riotous behaviour In High-street." Only one. however, was wanted in each case, and after they and the principals had given the usual consent "to owe the Queen £10," Perkins and Samuels were released, l'erl.ms was conveied out 1 the back way, and Samuels was allowed to depart by way of Goat-street, each being attended homewards by friends who had waited for them. BILL SAMUELS' STORY. Interviewed by a Post reporter as to how the bother arose, Bill Samuels said he had got hold of a telegram that McCarthy was not coming to Swansea to fight in Perkins | shew that night. He had it posted on the I window of £ b» •Id establish meat be used to, i rent in High-street. From that position it disappeared, and Samuels, ou inquiring, was told that Perkins had remeved it. He waS I teld by two or three people that Perkins had been showing the telegram, and he wont in ,cr search of Perkins, whom he came across in frent of Mr. Chapman's establishment* He immediately taxed Perkias with taking tbe telegram, and Perkins contended that it did not belong to him. Then, according to Samuels, Perkins expressed himself in all un- complimentary manner and squared up at turn. Samuels put himself in attitude and let go. Three or four blows were exchanged, and then the police appeared en the seeiie and pit an end to the exhibition. PATSY PERKINS' VERSION. The proprietor of the Old Gloucester I Scheol of Arms, talking to our man, accused Bill Samuels aiidMrs. Samuels of preventing M'Carthy turning up to light Me-gau. He said Mrs. Samuels went to Cardiff ai d used I' her influence there. During Friday evening he was teld Samuels had put up a telegram saying M'Carthy would not come. He saw the telegram, and as it was neither addressed to Samuels nor signed by anyene be pulled it down. A bit later, when he was further down the street, Samuels came up, and catching him by the coilar asked him to "turn up that telegram." He painted out that ha had no telegram of Samuels', asked him to let go his hold, and advised Bill to "tret along." At this Biil seized him by the threat with the left hand a.nd struck him with the right. "Of course, 1 had a bang at him," added Patsy, but the police had us both at once, and that's all." MRS. SAMUELS DENIES GOING TO CARDIFF. I If statements are disposed of by contra- diction, then there is very little in the asser- tion that Mrs. Samaeis went to Cardiff yesterday. When seen by a Post reporter she seemed astonished to hear that there was a rumour to that effect in circulation. I did not go from Swansea all day," she remarked, neither did my husband, and whoever invented the story that I went to Cardiff to see Pordv MICnrthv is childish and nothing else. Many more things are said, but they seem so absurd that it is best only to ridicule them. i;o, Idid not go to Cardiff at all yesterday." SETTLING THE AFFAIR. MAGISTERIAL PROCEEDINGS. At the Swansea Police-court this (Satiu- j day) morning Perkins and Samuels promptly answered to their names when called upon by the Magistrates' Clerk. Both stood at the corner of the advocate's table, Samuels with his elbow on the ledge of the dock and his hand ever his forehead, in the vaiu hope of hiding a black eye. Perkins took up a position by his side, and commenced studying the fittings of the Court as though he were a connoisseur in furniture. The charge was that of committing a breach of the peace by fighting and causing a crowd to coilect in High-street on the 17th. Inspector Davies was the only witness deemed necessary, and he stated that about eight o'clock on Friday night he saw both prisoners in High-street, nearly opposite the bank. They were fighting with one another, and a large crowd, numbering between 200 and 300, surrounded them. He separated them, and they were taken to the station and locked up. Neither Perkins nor Samuels had any i question to put, and when asked if they bad anything to say, Samuels replied "No, no," whiist Perkins responded with, It was done in the heat of temper, but 1 don't, suppose it will happen again." To this Samuels gave assent, and the Chairman thereupon an- nounced that they would be bound ever in their own recognisances of Y-20 to keep the peace for six months. ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL. A fair-si zed crowd was waiting their re- appearance in the street, and to the general amusement the late enemies steered a course into the Christopher Hotel, doubtless there to drink success to the six months' embargo,

I SUICIDE AT LLANELLY. A WOMAN HANGS HERSELF. INFLUENCE OF A DREAM. The inhabitants of the village of Dafen, a suburb ef Lianelly, were thrown into con- siderable excitement yesterday morning by the intelligence, which spread abroad with the usual rapidity which attends bad news, that a woman named Ann Jotin. Church- street, Dafen, had committed suicide in their midst. TNE circumstances connected witit the affair are very sad. About a year and a. half ago she lost ber HU^ and, 3. mason, and since then she has had a long struggle to urovtde the necessane; of life for herseif and two boys, one aged six years a.ud the other three years. To earn a livejihood she opened a small shop, but, as may be imagined, this was a very precarious method of getting her and their daily bread. She was very- despondent and often told her neighbours after her husband's deatb, that She was nearly daunting.' She WitS 39 years of age. It is said that bometime ago >she dreamt that bailiffs were selling her furniture, and she became so impressed with this dreaaj thac she implicity believed in it. This, it is believed, had a great deal to do with her taking the unfortunate step she did. She was A regular communicant at Dafen Church. bile committed the deed some time in the MORNING, for a little while before uinner-time her mother. Mrs. Harris, on going into the front kitchen, perceived her suspended by a rope to the ceiling, Mrs. Harris immediately cut her down. It was then seen that deceased had thrown a rope over seme hooks attached to j the rafters, and placed itaround her neck. Llanelly is getting up quite an unenviable reputation for suicides. Within the last six months no less than four persons have made away with their c<vn lives, three of tbem being married women and one a man. It is a very long time since Dafen iias been so violently disturbed before.

CYCLING. The brothers Collard, of St. Thomas, are beginning to get into form, and intend giving a warm lime of it to those who enter bovs' tac«s during tbe coming seasou. It is sur- prising what a collecuon of prizes these youngsters have amassed in previous years. As boys they are a smart couple, and their pater always swells with pride when he f-ees his favouritfcs touching the tape tirst in a race. I A funny little rumour readied me the other day concerning the conduct of a few j Swansea a amateurs at the Cardiff races last. Saturday. 1 have referred to the amateur'gm of one of these men tei'ore as being of a decidedly thin character. The next meeting of the N.C.l\ may produce a little surprise packet to one of these men. I just mention this lest the shock, when it comes. should prove too much for his system. They had better have a care, or they may find themselves in tbo ranks of the unlicensed riders. In these dusty days of peace and quietude it is difficult to find even a little grist for the cycling mill. Under such circumstances the first question that suggests itself is, "What may 1 grumble about r" There is plenty of what Mr. Jrfantalini would call "demnabiet dust" lying and flying abcut every where, and when a man returns on Ins" bike" from the Mumbles or any other foreign port presenting such a ghastly spectacle as a friend of mine did last night, tue sooner some kind genius turns his thoughts towards inventing a. n cilUjl, dust protector the better for the two genders who luove about on wheels, particu- j larly the feminine. I heard two local butterftie¡¡" wasting time and breath I on the Mumbles-road the other day in dis- cussing the relative merits or demerits of dust aitd rain, it was really amusing, though decidedly ludicrous.
