Played the Referee. Treherbert Lineman's Game of Football. Considerable interest was centred in a case heard at Llandaff on Monday, in which Philip H. Baxter, a linesman, of the Post Office, Treherbert, was sum- moned by Thomas Williarn Rees, a referee under the Cardiff and District Rugby Union, for an assault on January 23rd. Mr. A. F. Hill was for complainant, and Mr. Morgan Rees) defended.- Mi". Hill stated that on the date men- tioned a match was played at Llandaff Fields between Garth Rangers and the Canton Harlequins, in which Mr. Rees acted as referee. What happened during; the game* was described by the complainant, who said he was a traveller, of Donald Street, Car- diff. Things went all right till Garth scored a try about seven minutes from the end, when the Harlequins' captain (so complainant alleged) made use of an objectionable observation. Then, wheti the Harlequins were penalised, Baxter, who played on that slde, used abusive language and was ordered off. A couple of minutes later the crowd closed in, and witness stopped the game. He was hustled, and received a blow with a fist hehind ear, and. turning, round, saw defendant withdrawing his arm. As lie turned he was hit on the jaw by someone else and fell, having to be carried off the ground. Three witnesses said the man who struck complainant from behind looked like defendant. Mr. Morgan Rees suggested that com- plainant had made a mistake. Defendant denied the allegations made against him, but admitted writing a letter to the Cardiff and District Rugby Union, on January 28th, in which he stated that the way Mr. Rees refereed was a disgrace to football, and he should be reported to the Union. He also stated that he thought Mr. Rees justly deserved what he had, as lie had fairly robbed the 'Quins of the match. A number of witnesses stated that defendant did not assault complainant. The Bench, however, imposed a fine of £ 3 and costs, with the option of twenty- one days' imprisonment.
Our Library Table. Hints to Coal Buyers. The Business Statistics Publishing Co., Cardiff (the publishers of the well-known "South Wales Coal Annual") are nothing !if noti enteifprisijnjg. This Company's "Coal Annual" has had a, remarkable suc- cess, such as a publication of that excel- lence deserves, and the publication now before us, ''Hints to Coal Buyers," affords another l-mmple: to what an extent modem business; is; carried to the direc- tion of a, science. While the Coal Annual devotes its attention mainly to the production side of the great South Wales, industry, the present book deals mainly with the transport of the commo- dity. The book treats, in a most compre- hensive manner, with Welsh coal, coke, and patent fuel, from nit to port, and the contents including maps and diagrams effectively illustrate the docks and coll- ieries, and their apparatus. There ar'e also analyses, modes of description, spec- ial uses, treatment, and methods of weigh- ing and shipment of every variety of coal, full particulars are given of owners*, trimming and dock charges, text of charter parties, bills of lading and Colliery guarantees, whilst there are also sections dealing with pit props, fire-bricks, and a mass of other detail, constituting an unique and valuable work, indispens- able to everyone, both in this country and abroad, whether as buyers or otherwise, ill the great Welsh coal and shipping in- dustries, and the coal and kindred trades in general. The book is admirably prin- ted, the maps are carefully drawn and accurate, while the whole work reflects the greatest credit on the compiler, Mr. Chas. E. Evans, and publishers alike. We are informed that one half of the pro- ceeds of the first edition will be divided between the following; charities. The Royal Lifeboat Institution, the Cardiff Seamen's Hospital, and the Cardiff In- firmary. Such a notable work deserves a wide circulation.

I have faith in Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, therefore it is a pleasure for me to recommend them," says Mr. Evan Jones, 127, Primrose Street, Tony- pandy. Being a miner, I have a lot of bending and stooping, and at times I found it difficult to straighten myself, owing to the severe pains in my back; these were sharp and stab-like, and seized me while I was working..1 was so stiff in all my joints that I could hardly get up in the mornings. It was certainly a good day for me when I heard of and tried Doan's Back- ache Pills, for they gave me ease almost from the first. I was encouraged at this, so I went on with the pills, and in due time I was better in everyway. I do not suffer with my back now like I used to, and I shall not fail to, speak in favour of the medicine that has done me so much good. (Signed) Evan Jones."

Tonypandy Fruiterer's Child. Paternity Case at Barry. Ivy Morgan, a young woman, residing with her parents at 19, Kingsland Crescent, Barry Dock, summoned Daniel Jones, Tonypandy, at Barry on Monday, to show cause, &c. Mr. J. Phillips, soli- citor, Pontypridd, appeared for the com- plainant, and Mr. Harold M. Lloyd, solicitor, Cardiff, defended. Mr. Phillips said the only question to determine was one of amount. The defendant had offered the girl's father £ 45 in settlement, but this was refused, and since then the defendant had paid over various small sums. The ques- tion of settlement was again discussed. Defendant had paid £ 33, and lie had offered to make it £100 altogether. Thomas Morgan, the girl's father, gave evidence that the defendant was a mem- ber of a firm of wholesale fruiterers, who did a large business. Cross-examined, lie admitted that he was awaiting trial at the Quarter Sessions in a criminal charge preferred against him by the firm in whose employ he had been, but denied that these proceedings were taken because, of that charge. Defendant denied that he was a partner in the firm. He received 23s. a week wages, 1C(5. of which lie gave to his mother. The girl had offered to settle for £45, and nothing was said about £ 100. An order for 3s. 6d. a week was made, each party to pay their own costs,

Workers Educational Association. Meeting at Porth. Councillor W. T. Davies presided on Wednesday evening last over a meeting held at Salem (W.B.) Chapel, Porth, under the auspices of the W. E. A., with a view of establishing a branch of the Association at Porth. The attendance was not so well as anticipated, yet there had assembled some independent thinkers, who feared not to express adverse opin- ions. Mr. A. Mansbridge (general sec- retary of the Association) addressed the meeting. Speaking of the organisation^ he stated that its prominence had led Trade Union- ists to askJ. "What is it?" Not an un- natural question, he continued, when remembered that the Association began its campaign with no direct mandate from the Trades Union Cbngress, but as the result of the enthusiasm of a, small group of Trade Unionists and Co-operators, who having endeavoured for years to solve the problem Jof education ,ifor, work-people, were convinced that their advancement depended upon the construction of a body deriving its motive power from work- people, and their organisation, but in- cluding within it, scholars and, educa- tional institutions, a body non-party, un- sectarian, and democratic. In such a bodyJ. labour and education were to be unified, because the inspira- tion of labour must inevitably be the direct result of an educational system, which is in sympathy with labour as a dominating force in national life; more- over, the efficiency of education depends upon its having drawn to itself the rich mental influence which! labour, under! right conditions, can impart. In -Augusi 1903, a representative conference of Trade Unions, Co-operative Societies, and othtvr bodies, approved the idea. and started the Association upon its difficult way. From that time to this, they had steered a straight course, had helped workers and scholars, and rallied many to the wars against the ignorance and evil forces of our time. It never dealt directly with economic or political re- form, but sought to equip its members, and others, with increased mental power, and the spirit of comradeship, thus in a great measure, solving the problems of social betterment, either in their capa- city as units, or as members of industrial, political, or other bodies. The great factors in its success, continued the speak- er, was the ever ready support of the Parliamentary Committee of the Trades Union Congress, and the continued affilia- tion of large Unions, such as the Amal- gamated; Society of Engineers, whilst Trade Unionists, such as Mr. Shackleton and Mr Henderson, Socialists, such as Mr Philip Snowden, and Mr. J. Ramsay Mac- clonald, always held out their helping hands. At the present time, over 400 Trade Unions, branches and councils, are connected with the Association, chiefly through its 50 branches, paying annual subscriptions and sharing in its govern- ment. Connected to these were 1,000 other organisations that. yielded financial and other aid to their association, such as Ruskin College, and the National Union of Teachers, etc. Their great aim and ambition was to arouse interest among the workers; to present their needs to educational bodies, from which it hopes to secure facilities, and publishes or secures, the publication of reports and books. These things being accomplished automatically, because the experts in educational demand (the work- people), and the experts in educational supply (the scholars) are unified in the association. Mr. Mansbridge continued at great length, treating eloquently with various other points of advantages' to be obtained through the medium of the Workers Education Association. Questions were asked by members of the I.L.P., which were very ably answered bv the speaker- Councillor Moses Jones and Dr. R. D. Chalke, also addressed the meeting. A motion in favour of Establishing a brancli at Portli, was moved by. the Councillor, and was carried with but five dissentients,. all of whom were members of the I.L.P. Councillor W. T. Davies expressed his approval of the motion, and promised to give it his hearty support. A vote of thanks to Mr. Mansbridge and also the chairman, moved by Dr. Chalke, tormina- ted a very enjoyable and edifying meet- ing.
