THE WELSH PRESS. [BY GWYLIEDYDD.] The Prospects of the Government. The speech of Mr, John Moriey at Newcastle has revived, the drooping spirits of the con- ductors of the Ra<iicui vermicular papers. It is said that a drowning man clutches at a straw, and the assurance of the Irisn Secretary that both the Weish and Irish Bills will pass the tmrd reading before the end of July has given them much comfort. The statement is received uy some of the papers with a certain degree of doubt, but the "Bauer" hits. no hesitation in enaorsing, not only the words of Mr. Moriey, but in boasting that the Government will be likely to hold office until next year. "We hope, it says, "that they will stiok to office to the end of the session, whatever may be said of the next." It then goes. on to show that the present situation is not different to tint of other Governments that have been in office for three years. The Denbigh oracle is so sanguine as to expect that Mr. Asquith will yieid to the demand of Mr. Lloyd-George rather than risk a defeat. The other papers hope against hope. The "Tyst" questions the wisdom of Mr. Lloyd-George persisting in his amendment at the risk of wrecking the Govern- ment. The "ISeren" sees rocks ahead, and con- siders the result of the recent elections, the sign- of an early dissolution. The "Werin" quotes Mr. Chamberlain, who said:—"Never was there a more rotten and shaky Govern- ment. It has only succeeded in killing time, and its. dav of defeat is at the door. Self-inte- iest is its moving principle, and it is governed by party Interests. By attempting to please th.e Irish, the Welsh, the Scotch, and the teetotallers, it has lost the confidence of Eng- land." Mr. Moriey stated at Newcastle that "it is not the fault of the Government that the business of Parliament is proceeding slowly it is deiayea by the obstructive ta.ctics of the Op- position and the folly of the House of Lords. But, notwithstanding, we shall not despond whilst we have a majority in the House of Commons." The "Tarian" expresses itself as follows:—"We must admit-it would be no advantage to shut one's eyes to the fact—that the present condition of the Government is such as to cause anxiety to its supporters. Its majority at first was comparatively small, but is now much reduced. One reason is that the Parnellites have joined the Tories-one of the most extraordinary actions of the day. Besides, a disloyal spirit has come in, everybody playing for his hobby, without regard to the interests of the party. Take the Welsh members, for example. They show a disposition to rebel -some of them, at least—unless they have their own way. One of the tilings that may upset tiie Government is the amendment of Mr. Lloyd-George. Our duty now is to sup- port the Government. The quarrels of the Welsh members are childish, arid the sooner they abandon them the better." The "Llan" is of opinion that the measures intro- duced by the Government are for the purpose of quelling the clamour of the faddists who support it, and that they are not expected to become law. The "Tyst" asks:—"Is it wise to risk the defeat of the Government by persisting with Mr. Llovd- George's amendment? Mr John Morley said at Newcastle—and we have more faith in him than in anv other member of the House—that the Disestablishment and Irish Land Bills will pass before the end of July. The Liberal party complain that the Government does not put a stop to the disgraceful obstruction that prevails. It is feared that Harcourt is not sound. He is an able leader, but we have more confidence in the honestv of the Prime Minister." The "Genedl" says that the success of Lord Rosebery's horse in the Derby is a favourable augury of the continuance of his Government in office. The "GwvlitcJvdd" is delighted with the statement of Mr. John Morlev. It is a matte'- of astonishment that professedly Puritanic Wales •should allow the racing proclivities of the Premier to pass with- out a word of remonst rance: The Cymru Fydd Fad. Another move of the irresponsible persons who assume to themselves the representation of Welsh political opinion was executed at Chester last week. Their high-handed action at the Aberystwitli Conference was resented by by the South Wales Federation., and by a. section of the Northern oiganisation. That of the South wrote to the secretary of the Northern Federation suggesting the appointment of a joint committee to discuss the present situa- tion. A meeting of the latter was summoned to meet at Chester last week. There were 26 members present—chiefly from Carnarvon- shire and Denbighshire. Mr. Gee was the chairman, and played the role of an autocrat. When Mr. Bryn Roberts proposed that the press, hould be admitted the voting was equal, and An Gee gave his casting vote against it A member of Mie council gives the following account of the proceedings in "Cymro" -"The press was excluded by the vote and action of pressmen! One thing was noticed at the start, viz., that several members who had not attended for several years were present—the supporters of the Cymru Fydd policy had evi- dently left no stoToe unturned to secure the at- tendance of every person who would vote for them. Remarks" were passed during the meet- ing. and afterwards, at the prominent part taken in the proceedings by Mr. Beriah G. Evan's, the organising secretary of the Cymru Fydd movement. This gentleman evidently has a very slight store of the decencies which should regulate the conduct of public men. but voted and spoke as if he were the most independent man on the executive. Several interesting encounters took place between "ihe chairman and other members of the executive. Even those who agree with the chairman feel 'o that throughout the proceedings he acted < as a, one-sided partisan. This led to an exciting scene. One mem her got up and said that evi- dently the chairman was resolved only to give fair play to those with whom lie agreed. The editor of "Cymro" writes tlms: -Ve have given the subject our most .serious considera- tion, and are perfectly convinced that this unfortunate gathering will cost the Liberals hundreds, if not thousands, of votes.. and a seat or two into the bargain." The "Baner" sees nothing but sunshine and peace in the future and congratulates its readers on the succes« of the Chester meeting. The Llan- drindod meeting nn Thursday, however, is a sad commentary upon these sanguine hopes. The meeting was held in Whitsuu week, when members of Parliament are at liberty: but what are the fact<? Only four out ot the >51. Radical Welfh members put in an appearance Where were Sir G. O. Morgan and Air. Ellis and the remainder? The "Genertl" is ad so in a. satisfactory mood. "The North Wales it "j" buried." But seven out of the 23 who voted did Dot believe that it is ,d :>,mi the>- re inlluentia-1 n'en'witli a .arcre following. There is a debt of £ 165. and the treasurer will have to go begging for its liquidation. Miscellaneous. The "Baner," "Tarian," and "Gwalia refer to another scandal in connexion with Bansor College. There is a rule, it appears, forbidding any association between the male and female students outside the walls of the college, and two students have broken that rule. The papers condemn the rule, and advise the authorities to annul it, and trust to the honour and common sense of the students. „ „ Several papers express their fears that the Welsh Radical party will suffer reverses at the next general election. The "Baner says that the split in the Radical camp in Car- digansliire is widening, and earnestly counsels peace. The "Celt" is afraid that Cardiff will be lost to the Radicals. "The Liberal party in the town is not too strong at anj time, and, "unless the old member stands, there would be no chance for any other. The "Goleuad" is much exercised over the statistics of the Bishop of St. Asaph, and devotes a long leading article to an attempt to answer his lordship. The bishop is charged with deliberate misrepresentation, and of entertaining the theory of the Jesuits—that the end justifies the means. The Carnarvon correspondent of the "Baner" states that commercial morality is at a low ebb in that county, and advises the monthly meeting of the Welsh Metho- dists to take the matter up. "Bankruptcies are rife," he says, "and their dubious character has greatly wounded public morals. They prevail among deacons and preachers. Is it possible that the worship of the golden image will destroy the religion of Welsh Nonconformity "Gwalia" refers to the great change that has come over the Welsh Methodists, as exemplified at the recent association meet- ing at Treorky. "One speaker called John Elias a rank Torv," it says, "and the associa- tion agreed with him. The old preachers always mentioned the name of John Elias with respect, but the- preachers of the pre- sent day have no respect for anybody who cannot pronounce their political shibboleth." "Cvmro" is re-printing "Hiraethog's" "Life of an Old Tailor," written fiftv years ago. As the knight of the thimble was proceed- ing one fine morning in May to work at a farmhouse, the author puts the following beautiful verses in his mouth: — "Mae'r adar fry ar goed v fron Yn canu'n lion i'w Lluniwr, Mae'n naws eu llais o fynwes llwyn Hudoliaeth fwyn i deiliwr Ei alw wnant i eilia 'n iawn Gan hylawn i'w Gynhaliwr. "Dyrchafaf gyda'r adar man Bereiddiaf gan o'm genau, Am fwyd, a dillad, a phob dawn, 0 rwyddiawn drugareddau, Am edau dda a nodwydd ddur, Ac awel bur y borau." The "Celt" announces, with pride, that the only three bards who have won chairs and crowns at the Eisteddfod—representing the awdl and pryddest-are "Hwfa Mon," "Watcy* Wyn," and "Elfed," three Inde- pendent ministers, and that "Ben Davies will soon be added to the list." The "Baner" is not over particular in the weapons it uses to damage the Church. For instance:—"The friends of the Church can scarcely put their fingers on ten persons who have joined it from conviction during the last ten years The additions are due to gifts of money, coal, flannel, a day's work smiles, and frowns." (< A notice appears in the "Genedl," signed Beriah Gwynfe Evans," to the effect that he is the author of the articles that have appeared in that paper under the title of 'Helyntion Dafydd Dafis." The "Tarian" has the following:—"Shwd idea fydda fa i gal 'Syr Visto' lawr i 'Steddfed Llanelli yn lie y Prins of Wales? Fe fydda yn siwr ° dynu lot idd i weld a. a. fe nela r Comitee docins net. Trw ta Major Jones ywr membar dros Llanelli, dim ond iddo fa weid gair yn nghhist Lord perchan y ceffyl, fe gaiff i fentig a os dim cTowt, a"fe gaiff Wmffra Huws i rido fa rownd i'r orsadd fel joci, a Hwfa Alon' weid pishin o ganu wrtho fa fel Ityn: — "'Visto' anw'l, ma' dy enw Wedi cyrha'dd gwir fawrhad, Erys dy gymeriad gloew Fyth yn uchel gan dy wlad; Er nad wyt ond ceffyl tena\ Ma shwd son am danot ti, Fe alii di wneud mwy o'th goesa' Lawar iawn, na'n pena' ni." A correspondent of the "Goleuad" states that one-half of the time of the Sunday fchool at a Welsh Methodist chapel on a given Sunday was spent in selling and hawk- ing books, and^ that a profit of 12s. was made bv it—and he asks whether playing golf or making shops of the chapels is the worst method of desecrating the Sabbatli.
MAGNETIC HOCKS. MR. PHIL PHILLIPS'S RHEUMATIC CURE. Rheumatism is a compla-m t with which few elderly peop.e are altogether unacquainted, and upon its cure depends the future comfort and physical well-being of the unfortunate sufferer Much has been written resisting Mr. Phil Phillips's rheumatic appliances, but fresh otones are to bt heard daily of the marvellous cures which have been wrought by the energetic Caruittiun s socks, wristbands, &c. On Satur- day one of our representatives made a casual call at the shop of Mr. J. n.i JI^ in St. Alary- street, luud there met Air. Lewis William Lewis, of Bryn Gias Villa, Brithdir. Mr- Lewis was telling the story of his cure to Air. 1 hillips. He had pulled the socks out of his boots for Air. Phillips's examination. '.Ah! 1 see, said AXr. Phi..lips, "titty are doing you good." "Yes, that they are," said Air. Lewis, his face beaming with smiles- "They'll com- pletely cure you," said Air- Phillips and, con- tinuing, said, After you have worn this pair an- other couple of weeks come to see me again, and, in order to show you how much I am interested in your recovery, I wul let you have a, new pair ot socks at hall-price. The re- porter here chimed in" "How ion? have you been troubled with rheumatism, Air. Lewis?" "Since January," was the reply. "Were you ever troubled with it before,?" "No. I am employed at the White Rose Colliery of the. Powell Duffrvn Company at Brithdir, and at Limes 1 am obliged to go through water. and T t is in con- sequence of my getting wet that, 1 believe. I have got rheumatism." "Have you sutfored muAT' "Yest considerably. At times the pains were excruciating." "I presume you have \ried several specilice to get rid of it?" Yes, a large number, but nothing seemed to do me good, At hist I determined to try Air. 00 Phillips's appliances, and I am now right glad I did so." "When did you first weir the socks?" "Last Saturday week. I started from home on that day,and it was with great diffieu\*y that I reached Cardiff. I could not walk pro- perly. I, however, managed to limp along. and I eventually readied JVLr. Phillips s shop, and I had the socks and wore them. I con- tinned to keep them in my boots and stock- ings night and day for some time. At li"t I did not receive any benefit, but I did not desist, and now, as you see, I can walk pro- perly, and. what is more, I am free from pains. Indeed, my friends and neighbours are surprised to see me walking so soon." At this point Mr. Lew-is nut his boots on, and said. "Do vou see this. He had his hot on a dhair- "Do vou see this?" lie again shouted. "A fortnight ago I could not 'lossiblv lift mv foot vi>- I had losfc all use of it—animation seemed to have oeen suspended.

LOCAL AND DISTRICT. The 3ierthyr School Board at their monthly meeting, held under the presidency OF MI. W. L. Daniel, Official Receiver, on Friday iasut d a precept upon the overseers for £ 2,300, payablo on the 20th inst. AT the Holsworchy and Stratton Agricul- tural Association's Show last week Mr. A. Alason, of Swansea, took first prize for a horse between 12 and 14 hands and first prize for single harness horse of the same height. A petition from the certificated assistant teachers under the Merthyr School Board was are at the board meeting on Friday asking that the question ef their salaries might be cou- sidered, with a view te an increased rate of pay. The communication was referred to the schools management eommittse. During the last schooj year there were under the Msrthyr School Irarci seventeen schools, with 37 departments, prsvidiny accommodation for 9,951 children. There were 9.759 children" on the registers, the average attendance being 7.587. Tho grant earned amounted to £7,648 12s. 5d. The committee of the Barry Dock R.A.O.B. Club and Institute have decided to hand over the whole of the gate money in connection with the Whit-Monday fete iwid athletic sports at Cadoxton for the benefit of the funds of the Barry District Nursing Association and Acci- dent Hospital. The amount thus realised is about J653. On Monday evening Air. W. L. Morris, J.P., chairman of the Penarth District Ceuncu, was presented with a silver key in commemoration of the opening of the Penarth Free Library. Mr. George Carslake Thompson, LL.M., made the presentation, and Mr. Morris felicitously responded. A vote of thanks, moved by Mr. Purnell, and m jonded by Professor Tanner, was accorded Mr. Thompson. The hopes and fears of certain Cardiffians who have aspirations to the magisterial bench will shortly be resolved, for a. letter was re- ceived from the Lord Chancellor an Monday asking that the commission of the peace should be sent him. In all probability this document, bearing the names of those who will have secured the coveted honour, will be returned to Cardiff in a few days. A't tho Cardiff Board of Guardians meeting on Saturday the report of the gener 1 purposes committee, recommending fortnightly meet- nigs of the board and the printing of the agendas and minutes of meetings, was read.— It was felt, however, that the questions were too importagt to be dealt with off hand, and, on the motion of the Rev. J. R. Buckley, the con- sideration of the report was deferred for a mcnth. It has been already intimated 'that the Rev. D. Jones, At.A., vicar of Lampeter, is a candi- date for the vacant proctorship in Convocation, in consequence of the elevation of the Rev. Canon Bevan to the Archdeaconry of Brecon. We also understand that, a't the request of a large number of clergy, the Rev. T. R. Walters, AI.A., vicar of St. David's, Carmarthen, has also signified his willingness to be nominated- Louisa Lane, a married woman, of Cardiff was charged at Plymouth on Monday with stealing over E12 from Thomas Borne, a seaman belonging to the New Zealand Shipping Com- pany's steamer Tongariro, lying in the harbour. Prosecutor stated that on Thursday evening last he met the prisoner, and went with her to private Jr-ouse, wune he stayed the night. Hi) had then about £ 12 11s. in his purse, but when he awoke next morning the prisoner was gone and his purse also. She was arrested at Exeter, and the purse, containing X3 19s. 6d., three gold rings, and a pair of ear-rings, was delivered up by her to an officer. Prisoner pleaded guilty, and was sent to prison fcr six months. An outbreak f fire WAS reported at Cardiff Police Station on Friday morning to have occurred at No. 29, Bute-street, promises occupied by Airs. Jones, an", utilised as a cook shop. Before the steamer had been put in motion, however, the re-assuring news that the fire had been extin- guished wa.s telephoned to the contralstation, and. it then transpired that a small oil stove, which had been standing in the window of the cook shop, had somehow or other tippud over,and had only just begun to set fire to the skirting, whon the girl in charge of the shop succeeded in smothering the lamp and flames with some shawls. At a meeting of the technical instruction com- mittee of the Glamorganshire County Council held on Alonday at the county offices, Cardiff, Aldferman the Reiv. Aaron Daviea in the eh sir, Dr. W. Williams, medical officer of health, on behalf of the senate of the Cardiff University College, reported upon the advisa- bility of instituting a department of public health at the college. Dr. Williams was strongly in favour of the proposal, and thought such a department would be of great service J in supplying instruction to medical officers of health, and also afford imuclh assistance to sanitary inspectors and to medical men in obtaining diplomas in public health- The natter was favourably considered, and de- ferred. At the meeting of the Cardiff Board of Guardians on Saturday the Clerk reported having received a letter from Mrs. Evans, Pentre, in reference to the boy. William Young, who had been in her service, and who had complained to the guardians that he bad to do servants' work from about live in the morning until eleven at night. She said that the boy had made the guardians believe things that were not quite true. He got up at from 5.30 to six, and was always in bed by nine. A girl came to clean and wash, and the lad assisted a little in housework.—The Rev. J- R. Buckley said he had heard a, confirmation of this statement from another source, and other members also spoke respecting the gocd character of the house at which the boy had been living. A meeting of the Provincial Committee of the Institution for South WiiZes and Alonmouthsh re was held at tlhe Royal Hotel, Cardiff, on Fri- day evening, when Mr. R. Forrest, J.P., D.I: F.S.I., president for the year, presided, and amongst tho-E present were the following: — Alessrs. T. Forster Brown, W. J. ReeF (Swan- sea), T. Rule Owen (Haverfordwest), E. F. Lynch Blosse, George Thomas, CHARLES R:g'i;, J. Treharne Rees, W. Hitc-hcox (Ntwport), W. Harpur, W. Tanner (Newport), E. U. David, and C. E. Waring.—The mual buciness was disposed 01, and Air. It. J-'orr-cst was unani- mously re-elected president for the ENSUING year.—The president afterwards entertains} the committee and a. few >f his private friend; to dinner, which was of the MOST yeoherehe uec-ciip- tion and served in Air. Jixk-H's bes* stvle, ani the wine was excellent. There were LIE FORMAL speecthes, the Chairman remarking that he would be glad if the committee discussed eubjwb of interest to the profession round the social hoard, and a hearty vote of thanks to the president ocn- oluded a most enjoyable evening. A meeting for the purpose of selecting an- thems. tunes, &0., for the Welsh Baptist Fes- tival, to be held in ilie Roselxvry-hall, Cardiff, on the 2nd of September next, was held at Pontypridd on Saturday. There was a large number of delegates present, and it was an- nounced that about 100 Churches had acqui- esced in tlm proposal. A circular hncl been sent to the churches with a request ttiatthev should choose the congregational anthems, tinier. &r" with the name of the person who should act as musical conductor on the dav of the festival, for final selection at the meet- ing on Saturday. The meeting proved that ATr. Dau Davies was the choice of the majority, and he ii- unanimously selected to wield the baton. Eleven tunes, two compositions for children's voices, and two anthems were after- wards selected. It, was announced that over ten thousand programim s had been applied for, and about 120 instrumentalists had volun- teered their services. There is every prospect that the gathering will prove a great success. Air. Evan Owen íC'ard;q') is the hon. secre- tarv. and spveral committees have been ITI- pointed to aid him in carrying out the arrange- ments.
POISONOUS BAKTNO POWI)E R. -CAUTION TO GROCERS AND THE PUBLIC.—It, is a fact that quantities of Baking' Powder containing: over 20 per cent, of alum (which means that 150 to 160 grains are eaten in a 41b. loaf) are now bein«r sold loose by weight in large packets and tempting fancy boxes of various kinds; such rubbish, according to eminent medical testimony, is highly injurious to health, .,f and shenld he car- ully avoided.

GLAMORGAN POLICE. From an offieiail source we Me inform^ tttiat the fads having reference to the Gla- morgan County Police Force introduced by Mr. Walter Morgan at the meeting of the joint standing police committee 011 Alonday are misleading. At the meeting nearly 1he whole of the assertions made by Air. Alortraiii as to the deterioration of the physique of 'Ílê men in the force, and also with regard to -lie alleged increased expenditure, were refuted by Mr. Frauklen, clerk of the peace. Air. Franklen quoted from the Government re- turns figures which conclusively proved tl;AT not only is the average height of the men in the Glamorgan county force grea-ter than die average of other forces, but the expense ;s, on the other hand, considerably less than the average. Further, the trouble ha.s been taken to ascertain the average height at the present time of the county force, which is found to be 5ft. llgin.. while the average chest mea- surement as 40in. Again, another point wlhieih speaks well for the physique of tlio locail ibrce is that. whereas in the London County Police Force, 14,000 men strong, there are only about 105 men standing over hft. in height, in the Glamorgan For^e. consisting of only 400 men, there are actually some dozen more men who exceed 6ft. than there are in the London County Police. It is also a fact that economics have been effected in nearly every department, but tnis has not decreased the expenditure, owintr both to the increased pay given to the men and also the additions to the strength of the force. These facts, with others, which prove the assertions made by Air.
