Mr Stead and Russia. BIRTH THROES OF A MIGHTY STATE. Striking Communication. Mr W. T. Stead saya in a letter to the Times Here in St. Petersburg swe are witDeBflinv the birth throes of a mighty State whose fntore promissn to cast into the sbade all the glories of the old Empire of which it is the heir. It is a nation that is in labonr. Since tbe riaya of the emancipation of the serfs, when, in Wbittier's magniloquent phrase, Alexander II., ovith the pencil of the Northern Star wrote freedom o'er his land,' there has been no legislative enactment so far-reaching, so fall offatare promise, as the institution of the u in a. The decision to prohibit an assembly of the nature of the Zemstvo Congress is under any circumstances a very serions matter. The attempt to forbid a banquet in Paris coat one French KtDg hii crown. Everything was left to be decided at the last moment by General Tre- pofif, Minister of Police. General Trepoff wss one of those who, when the Eoaperor pnt the question to the members of the Coaneil of the Empire, Does the establish- ment of the Dama limit my autocratic power ?' answered, with soldier-like frankness, The establishment of the Dama is self-limitation by the Aatoerat of his own autocracy, and I think the time has come when it is necessary to be done.' When I ealled noon General Trepoff recently he had not even then made np his mind whether to permit tbe congress to meet or to prohibit it. Those who would fain continue in the old coarse find their path barred, not by the fair angel with the aword ot flame who guarded the gates of Paradise lost, bat by avenging fnries who threaten to drench with petroleum and blast with dynamite the foundations not only of the Throne bat of all organised society. Of the possibility of the coming of anarchy there are many portents flaming in the darkening sky. The blaze of Bakn casts a lurid glare athwart the land, a menacing forecast of what is to come when the red cock crowa elsewhere than in the distant Caucasas. "Bat the coming of the Dama heralds an end of all these absurdities and crimes. The Ditma is the Magna Chalta of the liberties of Bussia."
CARDIFF HEALTH DEPARTMENT CARDIFF ENGINEER'S SUGGESTIONS. Mr W. llarpur, the borough engineer, has, in accordance with the recent instructions of the Cardiff Health Committee, prepared a supple- mentary report to the one previously submitted to the committee, and pablished in onr columns. He points oat that he had in no way nongbt to have the control of the cleansing department, and that it was from no personal or selfish motive that be baj suggested that it would be more economical for the Corporation if the department were placed under his control. Mr Uarpar says:- In my previous report I stated that I had not attempted to make any great alteration in the organisation of the department. I believe, how- ever, that I hive succeeded in generally im- proving the conditions and working arrange- ments all round, and that much better results are at present beirl, obtained from all branches of the department than vohen at your request I took temporary charge on the 11th April last. The particulars are difficult to enumerate, and individually are not great, but the aggregate lesults are considerable. The chief alteration has been the closing of the Canton Depot and the saving of the expense of that establishment. The official staff previous to the date of my being asked to take temporary charge was as follows :—Superintendent, E306 per annnm liorsebeepor (with bouae, coal, and gRe), 1136 10s Bookkeeper, £117; clerk, X104 do., EI06 311 4d do. 432 109 do., f57 45 do. (jonior), JE26 storekeeper, JE99 108-11,008 17s 4d. On my taking charge I found thai there was no timekeeper or proper system of keepiDg the time o! the men and hired horses employed, and 1 therefore found it necessary to at once transfer n man (vVilliam Jenkins) from the Public Works Department lor this work, and he has Bince been employed in that capacity at a wage of £ 2 pex week at Trade-street depot. I am of opinion that the engagement of a sorsekseper in the capacity recently occupied by Newton is unnecessary. The work of keeping the returns of hired howea and of team work ,r other departments being much better, more ;(tisfactorily and accurately done, foS daring the pint few months, by Jenkins, the timekeeper at Trade-street, with the asaiptance of the junior clerk at that 3epot. A clerk at Slcper-road and another at Canton, at present, are in my opinion quite anneces- sary, aq also a clerk and so-called timekeeper at Trade-street workshops. If yon decide to place the department nnder ruy charge, I would therefore make the following rucommendationa as to the general staff (i( In case of an ailment to any horse, it be at once reported by the stableman and the vet. called in to attend to the case, as has lately been done. The stablemen are all well used to borBes and able to detect any illness, or to kdminieter a simple drench, which is supplied by the vet., and always kept in readiness at the utables but I am of opinion that no sick horse fchoald be treated (except tempoiarily) by any- one in the capacity of horsekeeper, as was pre- viously the habit, bat only by the vet., or under his directions. (2)0 That the employment of a paraon in tha capacity of horsekeeper be discon- tinued. (3^ That the only persons employed in a clerical capacity off the Town Hall premises be t tie timekesuer (Jenkins) and junior, and a store- keeper at Trade-street, and that all returns of work, materials, etc., be made daily on proper sheets to the Town Hall for entry. (4} That the clerical work and accounts be kept under the supervision of my chief clerk, Mr Thome. (5) That the storekeeper be employed to keep the stoies of both the cleansing and public works departments, and that the Public Worka Com- mittee be respectfully asked to agree to this pro- posal and to refund to your committee a moiety of his wages. To carry out this suggestion it woald be necessary to remove the store to the northern side of the depot, and construct a door- way into the public works yards adjoining, making the store of thitt department on the opposite side of the wall. I mibt here say that tne public works department has not at present a proper stores system, the establishment of which, however, has for some time past been in con- templation, but putting it into operation has been delayed pending the findings of the Depart- mental Committee. (6) That Chief Inspector Locke, of the public works department, continue to act aa he has done under me during the past few months (and sabject to the instructions of your committee) in superintending the work- shops and street cleansing, and generally the outdoor work of the department, in addition to bis datiea under the Publia Works Committee, and that She two ponies and conveyance formerly ased by the late superintendent be continued for his use. (7) The correspondence of the depart- ment woald be conducted by myself or my deputy. The remuneration I would suggest to the mem- beta of my fctaff, and cost of staff, all fore- shadowed by the foregoing recommendations would therefore be as follow --For my own per- sonal services, such sum all the committee may decide deputy borough engineer (Mr Greenhill), 150 Inspector Locke (making his salary A:230 per annum, and two annnal increments of ;EIO to follow making hia maximum E250 per annum), iE48 Mr Thorne (chief clerk), S25 timekeeper Jenkins, and two clerks, each at £ 104, £ 312; junior clerk, iL26 moiety of storekeeper's wages at 37s 6d per week, £4815s. I beg to make the following recommendations aa to the workshops :-1. That the workshops at Sloper-roftd he closed down, and all the work transferred to Trade-street. 2. That the snpply of firewood of aU depart ments of the Corporation as at present be dincontinned, as I am satisfied this is being done at a conaidernbte loss to tbe department. If, however, the committee decide to continue the supply of firewood, this should he prepared and unpolled from Trade-street, 3. That the manufacture of waggons, etc., by Cor- poration employees be discontinued, but that in fature these be obtained as and when required under contract, to specifications to be prepared by myself. The wages of the men employed in the work- shops in March last amounted to iE2,780 14a per annum. If the committee approve of bis sug- gestion to discontinue manufacturing waggonsand the snpply of firewood, he would recommend that the staff of workshop hands be reiaced on cer- tain lines, thus reducing the wages toLl,392 6s. He bad not recommended a redaction in the number of painters for the reason that the waggons, carts, vans, etc., of the department are inaveiy bad condition for want of painting. There were at present three men employed in the fodder loft, tbe work of which he was of opinion might he done by two men. There was also a man employed about the premises in sweeping out the office and workshops, etc., whose services he did not consider neceaaarv. The wages of these two men amounted to a17 per annum. Mr Harpur adds I am not able to give the saving likely to result in the coat of materials, etc., but it follows as a matter of course that it would be in proportion to the re- daction in the cost of labour, and 1 must leave the committee to draw ther own inferences."

Montgomeryshire Crisis. MINORITY APPEAL TO WHITEHALL. Progress of the Campaign. 0 EMERGENCY SCHOOL OPENED. The first emergency school in Montgomeryshire was opened at 9 a,m. cn Monday, the Vi(eish Calvinistic Methodist schoolroom, one and a half miles on the Carno side of Pontdolgocb, being nsed for the purpose. Sixty-one children attended the school, more than 50 being drawn from Llanwnog Church School, neariy three miles away. A photograph was taken of the children and those attending the public meeting held in the afternoon. Mr William Jones, who presided, said it was high time Nonconformity in Montgomeryshire made the stand it was taking that day. He hoped it was the thin end of the wedge for obtaining a Council school, Mr Hngb Lewis, acting chairman of the County Council and Education Committee, said some 200 or 300 years ago things were different to what they were now. Men and woman conld not worship nnlesa they used the Book of Com- mon Prayer, and it was really a crime to be a Nonconformist. Things were changed now be. cause of the patience and Buffering of our Non- conformist forefatheis. Although a Church- man be bad enough Nonconformist blood in bim to boil with indignation against this iniquitous Education Act. Alderman Ashton said they wonld-certainly now succeed in establishing their rights 2a citi- zens and free their children from the claws of priestcraft. A letter was read from Mr Humphreys Owen, M.P., saying that the Government had appealed to the letter of the law, and their response was to make good to their fellow countrymen the educational provision of which the action of' the Government woald deprive them. Sectarians' Report to the Board. The sectarian minority of the Montgomeryshire Education Committee met at Welshpool on Monday to continue the work of the committee. After a quorum had been got together Mr Richard Lloyd, the Liberal who has all along offered the stoutest objection to the Welsh National policy, was voted to tbechiir. He said possibly the seeeders woald come to realise that they had adopted neither the right nor the proper course, for their action would reboand not on the party whom they were hoping to bit, but the helpless children of the county. There remained on the committee a sufficient number to carry on the work of education in the future. He read the following manifento sent out by Mr Richard Jones, the virtual leader of the Liberal party in the county Montgomeryshire Education Campaign." Pandinaa, Caersws, September 19th, 1905. Dear Sir or Madam.-Now that the Liberal members of tha Education Committee have with- drawn from that body as a protest against the coercive measures adopted by the Government towards that body, it is desired that all members of oar party shall cease to take part in any administrative work noder the Education Act, either on the District Edacation Committees or as school managers, until farther notice. Yours faithfully, Richard Jones." Colonel Pryce-Jones, M.P., referred to the difficulty which the committee would experience in having to carry on with a quorum of 14, and suggested that steps should be taken to get the number reduced. Proceeding to criticise the action of the majority, he said he was not at all sorry that they should have taken the coarse they had taken inasmuch as it was more straight- forwaid in bia opinion than the policy they had been adopting for r-tbo past two years. For a considerable time after the Act came into opera- tion it was manifest that it was the intention of all parties in the county to administer the Act properly, and be believed that if Montgomery- shire bad been left alone, and had not been bothered by wire-pnllersfrom outside the county, it would have been pursuing the same conree that day. The Chairman suggested that the Board of Education should be made cognisant of all that had taken place. Early in the year, he said, the County Council adopted the Finance Com- mittee's estimates providing for an education ra.te of 6Jd in the £ for tbe whole, but at a sub- sequent meeting they went back on their word and decided by a majority to levy an cdacation rate of only 2id, which they intended for tbe pro- vided schools only. It was decided to inform the Board of Educa- tion tbattbeminority membershrwing considered the position of the Education Committee in its relation to the withdrawal from their delibera- tions of the majority, the rescission of the resolatioc delegating all the powers of the County Council under the Act to the Education Committee and the circular issued by Mr Richard Jones, Liberal agent for the connty, on September 19th, they thought that the only way of maintaining the efficiency of the sehools was by the Board of Education aaanming the powers given by the Defalting Athoritiea Act, and en- trusting the managers with tbe powers that they possessed before the passing of the Act of 1902. It wss also decided to forward to the Board of Edncation printed copies of the estimates for the year March, 1905, to March, 1906, together with a copy of the minutes of the County Council meeting held in March, where a rate of 6d for education purposes was recommended, and of the minutes of the subsequent meeing, when a rate of only 21ct was adopted. At the close Colonel Pryce-Jones gave notice of bis intention to move at the next meeting a resolution lecommending reduction of the quorum. Whitehall and Montgomeryshire. Mr Morant, Permanent Secretary of the Board of Education, has not yet returned to Whitehall from his vacation, and the important issues raised by tbe revolt of Montgomeryshire have not yet come under consideration. In educa- tional circles, however, our London representa- tive learns, the opinion prevails that it is a fore- gone conclusion that thelDefanlting Act will be put in force. At one with whom our representa- tive conversed on the subject put it, The minority of the Education Committee are asking for it to be pat iu force, and there is no reason why they should not be obliged." Certain it is that as far as can be gauged the Board of Edu- cation shows no signs of yielding in the slightest deyree.
BARRY AND THE BOARD. It is probable that a meeting of the Barry Education Authority will be held this week to consider a report from the committee who have mot and dealt with the recent communications from the Board of Education. As far as can be ascertained, there is no indication that the demands of the Board will be complied with. They are generally considered unreasonable, especially the requirement to pay a higher rate per head for the staff at St. Helen's School than any other town in the kingdom is paying,
MERTHYR COMMITTEE. Non-Provided Managers' Procrastination- A special meeting of the Merthyr Education Committee was held on Monday evening to con- sider what action should be taken with regard to St. David's Non-provided Schools. Mr Swilym C, James presided. The Board of Education wrote on the 20th inat. asking whether thay were to understand that the plans had not been ap- proted of becaaBa of the oontravention of bye. laws in the district and, if so. whether the managers had been told of such violations. They also referred to a previous letter, in wbich they praotically stated that they approved of the plans, and that with the evidence before them tbey did not feel justified in removing the scboo1 from the grant list. The Chairman read a report made by the surveyor (Mr Hatvsy), who, In reply to a query, said that if he was asked specifically for any broken bye-law he could not state that there was one. What he took exception to was that certain recommendations had not been adopted. The Chairman suggested that n reply be ten stating that inasmuch as the Board had ap- proved of the plans the Council did not raise any further objection, reserving to themselves the right of seeing that the bye-laws were strictly enforced when the baildings were erected. This was agreed to, with the addition that the Board shoald be asked to fix a date for the work to be started. Mr David Evans contended that tha manage- msnt of the schools, as fat as the ecclesiastical aide was concerned, was non est. No committee had been appointed by the subscribers. There were only the two representatives. it was deeioea It) pay tne salaries one tor tne pr- month, it being pointed out that if no -tatiefse- tory reply should be received from the Board of Education as to binding the managers to do the work in a given time, tbeConncil could then decide upon a definite coarse of action. Catholics Alarmed. The annupl conference of the Catholic Truth Society was opened on Monday if Blackburn. The Archbishop of Westminster delivered an address on the Catholic attitude towards tbe education question. He said if it was true that the prospective Liberal Government were to repeal or manipulate the Edacation Acts in & manner caJoalated to destpy the Catholic char- acter of the Catholic schools, then they were in the presance cf a crisis more serious than any they had hitherto had to face. They must in that event adhere to tha principles of the past and insist on definite religions instruction in their schools without let or hindrance. Then must be eaual treatment for all denominations. Glamorganshire's Prospect. Speaking at the annual mooting of tha Ponty- pooi sab-branch of the Monmouthshire Liboral Social Council on Taeaday, Councillor VV. L, Hughes, secretary of the Welsh National Liberal Coaneil, referred to the Welsh education cam- paign. The revolt had broken out in Mont- gomery and Merionethshire, and in a few days they would be face to face with the fight in Glamoigau. They would have to fight for their I principles aa Nonconformists, and they were going to figbt to win and would have to depend to a large extent upon the help of the ladies, (Cheers.)
FREE CHURCHES' ATTITUDE. Speeches by Dr. Clifford and the Rev. F. B. Meyer. At Cheltenham on Saturday, in continuation i of tha Midland Conference lor Deepening '^Spiritual Life, a testimony weesidg was hold" Dr. Clifford presiding. He discussed passive resistance, declarinll tbat it; was a matter of 'conscience alone. The Welsh revolt against the ,Edacation Acts was the revolt of awakened con- sciences, and naturally preceded the Walsh, 'revival, a religious movement which had brought- and would bring a blessing to the whole world. A sale of passive resistors' goods took place at Cheltenham on Saturday, and a great demon- stration was held at night, The Rev. F. B. Meyer said that their fight-one of the greatest in which the Free Churches bad ever angagei- I 'woald be fought by the solid body of Free Churchmen until victory came. They would have: freedom. Dr. Clifford argued that tbe-origin on the strife was not with Free Churchmen, bat with Anglicans and Romans. Free Churchmen were the victims, not the aggressors. Neither was it a battle of Chapel versus Charch, but a battle fought by Free Cbnrchmen for the rights of citizenship for all, and it was because they were deedv amdous for tbe religious education of their children that they desired that religious instruction shonld be presented to their children "in an atmosphere that should not alienate them, bat attract thsm. Carmarthen's Charge Against Whitehall- At a meeting of the Carmarthen Borough Eda- cation Committee on Tuesday evening, the Kev. E. D. Thomas presiding, the Board of Edaca- tion wrote stating that the suggestion that the question of the overdae salaries earned by cer- tain teachers be deferred until the end of the montb. appeared to them to involve a delay which, in the inttiresis of both the schools and the teachers, was hardly justifiable. The letter continued The Board can only consent to the date suggested on the clear understanding that a full and definite reply will be received im- mediately after the meeting of the authority re- ferred to (September 26th). In defanlt of Buoh a reply it may become necessary for the Board to proceed in the matter without farther refer- ence to your committee. The Bard are com- municating with the managers with regard to the exact amount of salaries owing to the teachers in question." On the motion of Mr A. Soppitt, seconded by the chairman, it was decided to pay all the salaries due forthwith. The Rev. Josenh Harry moved :— That this meeting of the Carmarthen Borough Edacation Committee desires to enter its strong protest against the arbitrary and partisan spirit in which the Board of Educa- tion administers the Education Act of 1902 within the area of the Carmarthen borough education authority." Mr H^rry mads a lengthy speech iu sapport of the motion, deprecating the promptitude with which the Board attended:to private, clandestine, and unofficial communications, and the dilatori- ness with which the official letters of tbeir clerk were dealt with. The Board had enunciated the good principle that it was cheaper to work a large school than a small one, and yet it refused to allow the committee to convert the Priory-street School into a mixed department, which would make the school larger. For the current year the estimate of the committee. was £ 1,500, but owing to tbe imperious and tyrannical inter- ference of the Board of Edacation tbe liability on tbe rates would mean abont £ 1,900, notwith- standing that the Town Coaneil bad limited the spending power of the committee to £ 1,500. Mr H. E. B. Richards seconded, and the motion was carried. It was decided to press for an answer from the Board as to the proposed conversion o the Priory-street departments into a mixed school. The correspondent of the Koman Catholic school managers applied for an increase of tbe salary of Miss Winbery, tha headmistress, who received S90 per annum, and had entered the service on the understanding that her salary would be increased by £ 5]attho end of 12 months, which had now elapsed. In reply to The Chair- man, the Clerk said the understanding referred was between Miss Winbery and the managers. Mr H. E. B. Richards remarked that the com- mitttee had nothing to do with that, and the Chairman called foe the next item. The corres- pondent of the National Practising School managers forwarded a copy of a letter qent to the Board of Edacation complaining of the inade- quate staffing of the boys' department. The Clerk stated that an 'Ppointment of an assistant was made some time ago, but the teacher only remained a week. It waa decided to again adver- tise for an assistant, and to await a communica- tion from the Board of Education. Appointments were made to vacancies in the Priory-street and National Practising Non-provided Schools. These vacancies bad arisen as the result of the committee's resolution to reduce the staff by dismissing eight teachers, a resolve which the Board of Education refuse to approve. Newport R.C. Schools. The Newport Education Committee on Taes- day will consider the position which has arisen by the non-compliance of the managers of (he non-provided R.C. schools with all the require- ments of .the committee and pass such resolutions. aa may be deemed expedient.
Revivalist's Personality. HUGE CROWD AT CARMARTHEN. Mr Evan Roberta, revivalist, paid a visit on Monday to his friend, the Rev. John Williams, of Prince's road, Liverpool, who had been preaching at the anniversary meetings of the Priory-streat Methodist Cbapel, Carmarthen. Mr Roberts' appearance in the borough had been anticipated for many days, andon Sunday crowds of people came in from the district. Though they were disappointed on that occasion, they came again on Monday afternoon, and at 5 o'clock Water-street was rendered almost im- paasable. Before 6 o'clock she gates of the Calvinistic Methodist Charch, situated in the thoroughfare, were opened, and the crowd poured into the sacred edifice, irhich was filled in a few minutes. This was more than an hour before the time announced for commencing the meet. ing. The interval was taken np with prayer, the reading of the Scriptures, and singing, and a deep religious feeling prevailed. At 7 o'clock the revivalist, accompanied by the Rev. John Williams, Rev. Karl Evans, and Mr Wheldon (manager of the National and Provincial Bank), entered tha building, and made their way to the front, the first three entering the pulpit. Mr Williams delivered an inspiring sermon, and afterwards Mr Roberts rose to speak. He laid stress on the importance of obedience to the promptings of the Spirit, and in testing the meeting at the close several conversions were announced, each conversion being received with the familiar Diolch Iddo." During the meet- ing the revivalist appeared to be in excellent spirits. For those who failed to gain admittance an overflow meeting was held in the vestry. Impressions of the Service. A special contributor writes :-One of the most remarkable religions meetings ever held in Carmarthen took place at Water- street Chapel on Monday igbt, the occasion being a service in the anniversary seriss of the new Priory-street Chapel, at which the Rev. John Williams, of Piinces-road, Liverpool, was the officiating minister. For the sake of greater space the larger edifice bad been requisitioned, and especially because there was a persistent ramour that Mr Evan Roberts would visit the meeting. For a long time before the service commenced an eager throng besieged the chapel gates, and on the latter being opened the large chapel waa quickly filled. There being still a full hour to wait before the announced time for opening the proceedings an impromptn service was held. and the Rev. M. B. Jones, the pastor of the ebnrch, appealed to all to seek power to look beyond personalities, and to strive upward to the spiritual. "Daw Mawr y rhyfeddodau maith was in fall swing wheu the Rev.

CARDIFF POLICE- ,I ♦ :1 A Serious Reflection, j AN INQUIRY DEMANDED. The hearing of the summons against Mrs I Mary James, of the Rothosay Castle, Bute-street, for harbouring women of ill-reonte, was resumed:'S before the Deputy-Stipendiary (Mr MilnecTones) at Uardiff on Wednesday. Mr F. W. Ensor i ffrom the Town Clerk's office) prosecuted on be- half of tbe police, aDd Mr Lewis Morgan (Lewis J Morgan and Box) defended. At the previous hearing Sergeant John Davian ] (8A) stated that, in conjunction with P.C. Giles, he watched the Rothesay Castle, and saw a nam- j ber of disorderly women enter, 'some of whom j stopped there a considerable time. The officers were subjected to a searching ex- amination by Mr Lewis Morgan, who insisted that it was impossible for them to have eeen what they alleged they IOaw from the railway on the opposite side of the road, where they said they were concealed. Mr Morgan further emphasised bis disbelief in the ability of the police to see, as they alleged they saw, what took place through passing tramsara. The Depnty Stipendiary thereupon adjourned the case, Btating ha woald visit the placa. His Worship now said that when he first visited the neighbourhood of the Rothesay Castle, and stood where the police officers said they conducted their observations, he thought he had made a mistake. He therefore paid a second visit. I will tell yoa theresult of my observations," went on the Depnty Stipendiary. I believe I have eMettenteyeB, but I could not tell whether it was a man or woman who went to the door (in South Church-street) of the Rothesay Castle.and if any perisons passed up the street to go away you lost sight of them absolutely and entirely. I saw people go close against the door, but I could not see whether they went in or not. Now I shall dismiss this summons, and I think this evidence ought to be thoroughly inquired into." Mr Lewis Morgan said be had four indepen- dent witnesses in court, and he waa going to call them. The Deputy-Stipendiary I have been there myself, and I say this ins,ease which Linat be in. quired into. Mr Lewis Morgan I have 20 witnesses. I think it a serious case, and 1 don't know, yoar Worship, whether or not you will make an order for eosts. I think it is unusual in police cases. The Deputy-Stipendiary said he could not make such an order. The police watched the Rothesay Calitla between 8.30 and 10.30 in the evening from the Taff Vale Railway. SPOT VIEWED BY PRESSMEN. The opinion expressed by the Deputy Stipen- diary that the police evidence should form the subject of inguiry- presumably because he had on two occasions visited the pJaco from which the police stated they bad kept watch, and that the result of his observation was to warrant his conclOsionIthat at that distance, and from that position it was impossible to differentiate between men and women entering or leaving the hotel by the side entrance -ban excited much comment in the town, We understand that the police will also take steps to insist, noon an inquiry on those points. The number of persons alleged by the police to have entered or left the hotel daring their watching, or the character of those persons does not affect the issue raised by the Deputy Stipendiary in dismissing the summons, On Wednesday night six of our representatives were detailed to make independent inspection, They did not know—neither do tbe police, even now- from what spot the Deputy-Stipendiary made his observations, but the reporters were taken to the precise place from which the police watched the hotel. Their conclusion is emphatic that from the position where the police were stationed there was no difficulty whatever in dis- tinguisbing between men and women entering or I leaving the side door of the hotel. As far as the front bar was concerned, this was brilliantly illuminated, and though the portion of South Church-street beyond the side entrance is in deep shadow, the whole (of the pavement from Bute-street corner to the side door is wol I lighted, the many electric lights in the bar illuminating the pavement and actually making it possible to read the advertisement signs in the window frame. The side bar, too, has a swing door with glass panels, and the only difficulty in distinguishing between the sexes when beyond the side door is removed by the light through the panel of the door reflecting light upon every person passing through it either way, or passing the door from either direction. The question arises, Did the Deputy-Stipen- diary make his observation from tbe same posi- tion as the police ? No one doubts but that Mr Milner Jones acted with the best of motives and in the pure interests of justice, but is it not possible that he may have mistaken the exact spot from which the police watched ? Whether an inquiry is initiated as the result of a report by either Mt Milner Jones or the head jooBtable to the Watch Committee, it is unlikely that the public will bo content that a matter of such importance should be allowed to pass by without the most searching investigation. Of course, we are not for one moment dealing in any way with the m6rits of this particular case, or questioning the decision in the slightest degrse. We are only concerned with the Deputy- Stipendiary's observations, which undoubtedly cast a serious aspersion upon the veracity of the police officers who gave evidence, and in the in- terests of the public as well as themselves this point should be definitely settled.
ALLEGED ASSAULT IN A STUDIO Pontypridd Photographer Committed for Trial. A case which evoked much interest came be fore the Pontypridd Stipendiary on Wednesday, when Theo. P. Morgan, photographer, Taff- street, Pontypridd, was charged with indecently assaulting DorotSy Mabel George (7) on Monday last. Mr Donald Maclean, Cardiff, appeared to prosecute, and Mr D. Rees (of Messrs W. R. Davies and Co.) defendde. In opening, the prosecuting solicitor described bow the litile girl, in company with her mother and younger sister, went by appointment to the defendant's shop to have her photograph taken. Defendant suggested that the little girl should go to the studio alone, as she would pose much better in the absence of the mother. When in the studio defendant raised ber upon a stool and assaulted ber. When outside the shop the little girl complained to her mother and the parent returned and charged the defendant with in- decent assault, which he promptly denied. Tbe little girl displayed much intelligence for one of her age. and answered all questions calmly and distinctly. In her evidence she spoke of entering the studio with her younger sister, her mother staying in the chop downstairs. She could uot say whether the defendant interfered with her before or after he took her photo. Ho lifted her on a stool, and kept on kissing her and saying, What a pretty little girl you are." Her brother went back to the shop, and defendant said, I didn't hurt you, did 11" and witness said No." Cross-examined by Mr Rees There were other persons staying in the same hoose as her mother and father lodged. She had been speaking to one of the men on Monday. She only com- menced to cry when she got outside the shop. Her mother asked htr if she had sat on Mr Morgan's knee, and witness said No. I sat on the stool." She aid not see a lady assistant in the studio when she was there. Mrs George, who said she was the wife of a theatrical advertising agent, spoke to examining the child's clothes and going to see the defendant. Tbo child bad not been an unusually long time in the studio. Cross-examined by Mr Rees Her name was Parsons, George being a professional name. They had been in Pontypridd since Saturday week. She was not aware that a Miss Falconer was in the studio when the alleged offence took place. Witness denied having ever been connected with a similar case before. P.C. Griffin spoke to defendant's arrest, and his reply to the allegation that he had done nothing to the child and that there was a young laay passing through the studio continually. On the way to the station defendant said, I hope you will do year best for me, officer. They are only theatricals, you know." when charged he said, I am not guilty. I don't know what else to say in the matter." Medical evidence was then given by Dr. Howard Davies, who said there were no marks of violence on the child, and by Dr. Scbolberg, of the Glamorgan County Laboratory. Prisoner was committed for trial, bail being allowed. Defendant Suggested Blackmail. Defendant gave an emphatic denial to having kissed or hurt tha little girl. "In fast," said defendant, I never kiss any children. I cannot doit." He never interfered with the child at all. There was a skylight to his studio. When the girl's mother made tbe accusation against him iiheicaugbt hold of the cover of the counter oase alnidamashed it, and ¡(AVe me a couple of thumpings myself," added the witness. His lady apprentice was present the whole of the time the, children were in the studio. Cross-examined, defendant said that he was of the opiuion that the charge was made against him with the hope of getting some money oat of him. The Stipendiary Waa anything said about money ? u uefendaut Mo. Mr Maclean That is what you suggest. Defendant Yes or they have been paid by someone else to do it. Do you know of any enemy 1-o, I do not. For some reason which ycu do not know they have been pat up to make this charge agajnst yon i-Yes. Mips falconer, apprentice to the defendant, said it was part of her business to see ber em- ployer posing the children, and on this occasion she watched the proceedings, and nothing im- proper tccarred. Revs. E. G. Evans and R. G. Betry.Gwaalody- garth, gave evidence of defendant's exemplary character. Prisoner was committed to take his trial at the next Quarter Sessions, bail being aJlowed, him- self in £100 and two sureties of R50 each.

Trotman, of Ham- mersmith, cured of I ndiges- tiOD, Biliousness and Head- ache-Wonderful Testimony -Benefits received from Iron- Ox Tablets. The following interview with Mr R. J. Trot- man, a District Railway signalman, residing at i 43, Lochalin-street, Hammersmith, must prove II of intense interest to every unfortunate man and woman who suffers from indigestion, biliousness, nausea, distress after eating, nervousness, anasmla, and constipation. Mr Trotman's wife ? was the first to experience benefit from Iron-Ox Tablets. She was inclined to be anaemia and suffered from general weakness. She took Iron- I Ox Tablets with such wonderful beneficial Iresults that she advised her husband, a martyr to indigestion, to give them a trial. I I have never spent a sovereign to greater advantage." This remark was made by Mr R. J. Trotman to a Press representative. About 20 years ago I was ser\ing in India in the 2nd Batt. Middlesex Regiment, end there had a touch of fever and ague. Whsther it was in- duced by the climate or the rough meals we need to get, I don't know, bnt I never got the disease thoroughly out of my system, and riht away from that time until a few months ago I have been a martyr to indigestion and all its attend- ans ii Its-constipation, biliousness, headaches. For years I never knew what it was to get up in the morning without having a severe headache, just aa if my head was being split into pieces. j When I ten you that more than once the water has run from my eyes almost in a stream, yoa will understand what sort of headaches I used to endure. No man has Buffered more than I have, as my friends and fellow,workmen know. I have been absolutely curled up with agony and have gone four days at a stretch without food. Many j a time I have been hardly able to walk along, my whole system seemed to break down temporar- ily under the attacks, and I felt as If I did not want to see anything or anybody. The mere thought of food almost made me sick, and often during one of my bilious attacks I have vomited nothing bat water. I tried all sorts of advertised cbmedief; -tnrned m-vf!elf into a regular chemist's thop in fact—but although I got relief for a day or two at a time, 1 derived no real benefit until I commenced taking Iron-Ox Tonic Tablets. My wife, who was run down and inclined to ba, anaemic, had tried them with excellent results. They pulled her together wonderfully, and noth- iniz would satisfy her until I gave them a trial, j With the first two or three boxes I did not feel any appreciable change, so I wrote to the Com- pany for farther advice. They told me to in- crease tbe dose, which I did and from that time i rapidly began to mend. I dareaay I have spent a pound on Iron-Ox Tablets altogether, bit have never spent a sovereign to greater advaD' age in my life. It has been worth fifty poofi to me, for at the present time I feel as well as '•> j 'is possible for anyone to feel. I have not had *i touch of beadacne or biliousness for fully months, and after twenty years' unceasing ing, I think that is as good as saying I am 1 can enjoy my food and my whole Bystem is thorough working order. The one thing I like a boat Iron-Ox Tablets is that they do their work so delicately, which is more than can be said for | some other remadies I have tried. They nevet caused me the slighteet discomfort. I still taka the Tablets occasionally as a safeguard, becaasa they are such a fine tonic, and have recOØli mended them to a great many people, who know have derived benefit from them." MR R. J. TROTMAN. The importance of tbietestimoniaJcominrrro/Ø a man who has been cured by Iron-Ox T&bJsw j after twenty years of suffering, cannot ba too strongly emphasised.

Passive Resisters. SCENES IN CARDIFF COURT. A Dramatic Declaration. Passive Resisters again assembled in sitong foice in the Crown Court of the Cardiff Tovn Hall on Wednesday. The Rev. James Baillie, watchful as ever, took his accustomed seat in the jury box. Near him sat half a dozen girls, quite in their teens. They, too, were l'assive Resisters, but were present to lend moral anpport to those who had been summoned. Away back in the gallery sat the Rev. J. C. Honey, who enjoys the unique distinction, RO far as Cardiff is concerned, of being the only Passive Resister, who, as yet, has been forcibly, bnt gently, put out of conrt. As usual, the conscientious objectors were sandwiched in between whole-rate defaulters. Many of the latter told, in hurried whispers, sad stories of poverty- of grim struggles for existence. The Deputy-Stipendiary (Mr Milner Jones) granted the grace asked for in each case. Messrs E. Turner and Sons. the well-kndxn contractors, were the first Passive Resisters called upon. They were represented by Mr J. E. Tamer. When will you pay ibis rate?" aaked Mr Milner Jonen. When will I pay it ?" 'Yes, when will you pay it ?"

Because, you see Silence," demanded Court Sergeant Evans. Order," repeated P.C. Thompson. Tbis is a sectarian rate, and Order, order." Court Sergeant Evans's com- mand was peremptory enough this time, and there was a movement of a couple of police towards Mr Holcombe, who, apparently divining what was intendod.reaerved the remainder of bit little speech for the benefit of a few friends. The Rev. J. Williams, Clive-street, was onm- moned for Is 8d. 11 1 suppose I must Acknowledge it," he said, but I cannot willingly pay for sectarian teach- ing in public schools." Warrant." ,,If I thought I owed the rate," declared Alderman S. Mildon, I would pay it at once." Hear, bear," muttered a resister in tbe well of tbo court. Order "ursied Coult-Bergeoot Evans. Alderman Mildon had no questions to ask, and then came the usaal pronouncement: ,¡ Warrant." J am Fb Passive R.Tr. ir," explained W. H. Clarke, Cymmer-street. Then I issue a warrant," promptly an- nounced his Worship. R. Blundell, 21, Cymmer- street, met with a similar fate. Mr W. Harries, Taff Embankment, raised a technical objection, but upon being asked whether be wished the case to be adjourned so that the mistake might be remedied, replied Oh, no. The objection I have is that I am a Passive Resister." The Court laughed heartily, Warrant." James Paisloy, 9, Durham-street, conld not pay without entering his objection. "Warrant." F, Matthews, Brunswick-street, waa very dramatic in his statement and attitude.

ENGLISHMAN'S TRAGIC DEATH. Bologna, Tuesday.-From he neighbouring village of Sasso, says the newspaper Resto Del Parlino," comes the sad news of the death of an engineer of foreign origin, who had been living in Bologna for a long time, and waa very well- known in the local clubs. The engineer. Alfred Helrnano, was of English extraction, ana bad dwelt Sn Bologna since hip youth. Hel- mann, who was 74 years old, had moved in high class circles. For soire time be had been manager of the Maglio Paper Manufactory. Mr Helmann had been BCQUBtomed to spend the summer in the Nalazzo D'Armi, little less than a mile from Sasso, and used to go every morning when he was Robia to take a walk among the hills and woods near his j summer residence. This is what he did yesterday morning whan misfortune befel him. A little torrent called the Rio Verde falls down into tbfl lleco from mountains between two steep cliffs forming a ravine, and Mr Helmann nsed to sit and relft in the chestnut woods which crown these cliffs. Yesterday morning a little girl found a bloodstained corpse, the face of which atiil moved, in the bottom of the Rio Verde n,vine.. The little irl. scared, ran and told some peasants, who with several policemen and a doc- tor proceeded to the spot, where they found Mr Helmann dead. The doctor says death was not instantaneous, but supervened some bonis after the fall from concussion. It is supposed during his morning walk Mr Helmann slipped on some grass wetted by the rain which had fallen the night before. The body is being guarded.by the police until a magistrate arrives ta take the necessary legal mearures, after which it will be sent toeugltxnd. -,Router. j
