TRAMWAY LIFE IN BIR- MINGHAM. So much has been said and written on the suibjeot of the electric tramways of Birmingham since their successful municipalization that a glimpse of their- innex working by one. who has seen consideraible, service both with the Company and the Corporation may not be wiithouit. interest to cur readers, partacularly as such a largenJUmlber of visitors to Llaiidudno ,are drawn from the Birmingham district. Viewed from the standpoint of the coniduqtor the, lilfe is not all roses, easy though the work may seem; and light as may appear his duties as he stands in the rear patform looking out for poissiblo fares as the dark blue car speeds past you standing on the pavement. To obtain the position of conductor a man's character must be like that of Caesar's wife, "above. suspicion," because when he has pass- ed the Rubicon and been accepted as proba- tioner he has to fill up an application farm for his license, which contains the most search- ing queries, and which when duly filled and signed by him is handed over to the Hackney Carriage Department, the officers of which verify most closely his answers and ascertain beyonu the shadow of doubt whether he is a fit. and proper person to be licensed t,o "act as a conductor off any carriage licensed to use any of the tramiways, by the Local Authioxity within the City," etc., etc. In the meantime whilst these enquiries are going our neophyte* is placed by the road mas- ter, a chief inspector, on a car, with a trust- worthy and reliable conductor, who at otice- invests him with the order oif the "ba,g and punch, and initiates him into the mysteries of rstag, faxes and tickets, impressing upon him the difference' between exchange and ordinary tickets, and if he has "been there before" mak- ing an arrangement, with the learner that he shall make goad ,all "shorts," which means all deficiencies in cash when the tickets and cash are checked before paying .at. night, which shorts are too baiae, of a conductor's life,, be- cause they are all stopped from his wages when he is paid the following week, and point- ing cut to him that his exchange tickets issued must tally with those, workmen's re- turns received from the passengers, otherwise the difference- in value will also be stopped from his wages as well as the shortage in cash. 11 The embryo conductor then starts collecting his fares, being careful to punch each ticket in the section for which it is issued, otherwise the Nemesis in the form and uniform of an in- spector will drop upon the mistake and have what his soul delights, in, a "case for report," which always i-neans a journey tk), the office "in his spare time," and after a protracted and needless delay in the waiting room, along with numerous other unfortunates under .report he is ushered into the presence of the official who has the charge of this department, and after being duly "carpeted" is either handed a paper setting out that "Conductor Smith has now attended office and may now return to his own ,clar," or politely told that the manager has decided to make him "an inspector of Public Buildings," which is the way tramway men describe what is commonly called the sack in common, or garden circles. However, should all go' well the conductor does his stated number of journeys and gladly bands over the .car to his relief, and gathering up his box and alaie way bill, takes another trrum to the depot, where seated in the mess room he proceeds to what I always con- sidered the most interesting part of a con- ductor's duties, the counting -the money and comparing it with the tickets. This- is a anioment -of great interest, because sometimes, talasl too sefldom, you find an overplus, but more often- a deficiency, and after counting and recounting, checking and re-checking, you -decide that you must pay in shout and have whatevor the amount may happen to. be, de- ducted, as I said before, from your wages. On one or two occasions, however, I have found myseillf very much to the good, on one at least by someone giving me a florin in mistake for a penny, and which on a dark night ouitsMie is not noticed by ,either passenger or guard, and subsequently found by the conductor in the copper portion of his bag, .and goes to reduce the .amo-unt he has lost iby "shorts." But c)olleicting fares is not the whole of a conductor's duties. He has to manage the trolley pole at the same time to see the trolley does not jump the wire- at frogs and switches, far if it does it may pull down yards of wire and upset tihe entire traffic or pulil its own head off and thus block the road until another ,ear comes and shoves his car back to the depot; either of these occurences will neces- sitate a "maiuvas quart d'heure" in Corpor- ation Sltrerelt, with very probably the order to pay for the diamage, another deduction from his already depleted wages. He has further to change the trolley at the end of the journey, so as to. enable the motor- man to drive the car from the- xeverse end on its return jo-urney, pull the- automatic switches at the junctions when they are out of order, as they most frequently are, and a new rule is he has to change the destination signs every trip, -which is so much needless extra work. To next touch on the- passengers. 'They are of so many dispositions and characters that a conductor needs the temper of an angel, and the patience of Joib, to treat them all with un- varying civility and courtesy, as the least sym- tom of temper will with a, touchy passenger lead to a report and- another visat to- the "office." Passengers to my mind seldom or never make allowanoes for a conductor's annoyances and worries. I have always been a little bit of a student of human nature, and I have fre- quently -oibsei'ved that some of them try to^give the conductor as much annoyance as possible, where a little tJhought would save him trouble. Some genCieimen try to save his legs by offer ing him the fare before going on. top; ethers TUsh up the sltairs as if their liveis, depended on it, whilst he is inside never thinks that if he has been on top and has not. seen them go up it means a "miss fare" for him, and anothei report and possibly visit to the. office. Then there are the- passengers who offer a crown or a half sovereign for a penny fare, stoutly de- claring they have nothing smaller. I remem- ber one gentleman who day after day tendered me a sovereign for a two-penny fare. It hap- pened so- oifiten that I came to the concluisaon he did it on purpose, and I resolved to cure him, so I accordingly prepared for him. The next time he happened to o,-ii-iie, in my car he tendered the pound. I said nothing, but took it, punched his ticket and then handed him three bags of coppers, each containing five shillings, four sixpences, eleven, three-penny ,bits and penny. He remonstrated, and the other passengers laughed. Next day he had twopence ready in copper, and never offered me a sio-vereign again. Solne, never take the: trouble to tell you where, they are going, which is very (awkward when as on Bearwood cars there is a twopenny fa-re to Bearwood and three halfpence- to Windmill Lane, but simply hand, you twopence and say ",al1 the way," You naturally punch a twopenny ticket and hand iit them, to be indignantly told, "I want a halfpenny change, I am only going to the Seven Stars." Then I consistently r,efus.ed to alter what I had done, telling them I would not change the tiekeit, as they had distinctly told, me the way." The majority of pas- sengers, moreover, do not tell you as they ought to where, they wish to' alight when talk- ,ing their tickets. The result is, if you happen to be on top when they reach their destination you carry them too faT, and consequently get abuse and frequently curses for what has really been their -own. negligence. Next I should wish Itotouch on. some. of the many f-aullts in the management, which, let us hope will be remedied as the official staff learn their business better, and perhaps they will take, a note, of what one who has had practical experience would suggest as wise re- forms. One great, annoyance to Bearwood passengers waiting at the Parade and Monu- ment Road is to And themselves passed by a full car, chiefly containing passengers for local penny fares. This could be obviated by charg- ing a minimum fare of twopence on through Bearwood cars, between twelve and two, and after five in the, afternoon. 'This has beleni satisfactorily tried in the King's Norton cars, and may be .confidently recommended to the Corporation. Next give, thei conductors back their whistles, which have been taken away, why I don't kniow, ,except to please some grumblers who oibject to the noiise, and who- d-o-n't care how much extra stair work is done by the con- ductors, who have to; come down to start the car every time any one wishes, to get off. "Never mind, he's paid for it," is the general remark,, but what is he paid, fivepeiice, an hour for -acting as conductor, accountant, etc., whilst most workmen get nearly double pay without half the anxiety and responsibility of the conductor. Further, why not work the men half-day shifts instead of reliefs. Nine-tenths of the men would prefer to go and do. their work straight off and be done instead of fooling around on two- and sometimes three. shifts a day. Do away with half the number of tickets; the exchangers could easily be abolished by a simple methed. When the passengers hands a conductor his workman's return it is punched; one side only; allow the ecinducto-r to punch the other side and hand it back; the little coloured "jilt" in the punch would be the check instead of the tiicket, and this would save ais carrying five tickets on the Bearwood route, reducing his packs from sixteen, tickets to eleven, which would be a great help to the conductor and minimize his trouble to a cer- tain extent, hat as I have saw belfo,rel neither employers nor passengers consider him very much, the moitormiam has a very much easier time, as long as he drives carefully, keeps time-, and meets with no accidents. There are no reports for him; he is slightly better paid, and a bonus of £ 1 a quarter for a clean sheet. No sucih luck for the conductor, though it might be easily given for no. reports during the quarter. 'This has run to a greater length than. I anticipated, but I think I have sketched out .enoiugh of .a. conductor's life and. duties to. shew his life like that of a po-licem-ani is not, "a happy one," and if my article will induce a few passengers- to exercise, a little miow-e con- sideration for the conductor I shall feel I have not written it, in vain.

FURNESS, WITHY, & CO., LTD. A HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL YEAR. This Company, which is generally known 118 the proprietors of the "Furness Line of Bteamers, is not only a shipping company, but owns dry docks, and also engages in ship-build- ing ship repairing, and salvage work, of which latter it makes a speciality. The Company's in- terests in collieries, marine engine works, and innumerable industries in the North of England and abroad are sources of very considerable re- venue. The balance sheet just issued discloses a very strong position, and dividends, which in the past have ranged from 10 per cent. to 20 per cent., have very bright prospects for the future, as the Company is admirably managed. Briefly, the position is that during the past year the whole of the Debentures have been paid off plus a bonus of £10 per debenture. The Insurance Fund has been increased by C70,000, and the reserve fund stands at £500,000, which is sepa- rately invested. The profits are £ 572,936: an increase on the previous year of over £ 30.000. Such results as these point to financial business acumen of the highest order, and Sir Christo- pher Furness, M.P., as the head of this great North Country Company, is to be congratulated on the result of his labours. The other directors are all practical men devoting their entire ener- gies to the business in the various departments of this huge concern, and the shares of the Com- pany appear a most attractive investment. The Company will be enabled to reap a substantial profit by doing part of its own underwriting, having, as above stated, transferred £ 70,000 ouf. of profits to the Insurance Fund.
A DIVORCE SUIT. 1 PETITIONER AND RESPONDENT WELL- KNOWN AT LLANDUDNO. "I am a bad woman, and love another man. So wrote the wife of Mr George Arthur Lcrxi- man, formerly a cotton manufacturer, living at St. Margare-t's-xoad, Bo-wdon, who, in the Div-ortce Court, w-as granted a decree nisi be- cause of her misconduct with a young French- man, M. Charles Claire.. There was no de- fence. Mr and Mrs Loirin-iaa-i, have frequently stayed at Llandudno- for periods extending over many months. Mr Lorriman said he married the respondent on September 9th, 1891, at St. Margaiet's- Whalley Range. They went to reside at St. Margaret's-roiad, Bowdon, Mrs Lorriman hav- ing considerable means. Mr Barnard, K.C. (counsel) for the husband): She has iP,30,,000 at the present time?- Yes. And also had a re,version to over zP,100,000?- She has 930,000. I do not know exaotCy as to the £ 100,000. Well, a very large sum?—Yes. Witness went on to say that he and his wife lived happily together far some years, a child being born. In 1897 1-ie, gave up his business as a cotton manufacturer at his wife's request, and travelled about with her: "I LOVE ANOTHER." In 1906 they went to London. There he, was introduced to the. co-respondent, a young Frenchman, and they became very friendly. In September, 1906, while staying at East- y- bourne, the ico-respondent paid them week- end visits. One- day witness and a friend aranged to walk to Bexhill, where; Mrs Loxri- man and another lady were to meet them. They did not meet, and on returning home witness fbund his wife had gone away. She left behind a letter saying that she loved another man. The, letter., from which onil-y extracts were- read by the judge-, said: Dear George,—You have said lately I have not ibeen, the, siame to you. I am a bad w-o-man. I love another man, and after weeks of a,gony I have decided to go to him. I quite realise what I am doing. I am very, very sorry. I know what a dreadful woman I am, I canlt help it. Nothing (alters it. I must go. Thank you for trying to be kind to me. I h-ope you will for get me. Another letter the wife, wrote her mother, who was residing in Southport, contained a postcript in the handwriting of the co- respondent. Inquiries were made, and witness found his wife was in Nice with the co-respondent. Thereupon he instructed his solicitor, Mr George Ball, of Manchester, to see the re- spondent, at the same time handing Mr Ball, of Manchester, to see, the respondent, at the same time handing Mr Balll a letter which he was to: give to Mrs Lorriman. THE WEDDING RING REFUSED. Mrs Augusta Lehman spoke to the incidents on the day Mrs Lorriman left her home. When witness went to pick her up to go on, the drive to Bexhill, she found Mrs Lorriman packing up in order to go away with Mr Claire. Wi-tnesis tried to> dissuade her, but in vain Mr George Shoreland Ball, .solicitor, of Man- chester, gave coiioboiative evidence. Speak- ing of his visits to Nice, he said he met the respondent and co-respondent, in a restaurant. He handed her the husband's letters, having also wiith him the wedding ring, which was to be given to the wife as a token off reconcilia- tion. "I offered it to her," said Mr Ball, "asking, 'Will you take it r She answered 'No,' adding 'It is no use, because I shall never come back.' A decree nisi, with the custody of the child, was granted, with costs against both the re- spondent antd co-respondent.
TOURING IN WEST AUSTRALIA. MR. LESLIE HARRIS'S EXPERIENCE. Writing to a friend from Kalgoorlie, West Australia, Mr Leslie Harris, the popular en- tertainer, who has a, large circle of friends at Llandudno1, says:— You can have no conception of the weird- looking places we've performed at. Arrived at the station, one sees a few scattered shan- ties, one hotel, and hidden away somewhere a home of draughts, called Mechanics' In- stitute, or Town Hall, or Municipal Hall, built mostly of tin. The- piano would be minus some half-dozen notes, .and the other notes would mostly be out of tune. Then the audience! Decently dressed in front mostly in shirt sleeves and smoiking. pipes at the back—and playing tin trumpets, whistling, shouting, and making personal remarks about any well-known person entering the all, etc. And so very sociable, too—cries of "Come on, I Legs'—'Urry up, Leslie," and so forth. Tken most of them bring their dogs, and we have dee fights between the items I You .can easily imagine that some of these blokes fail to understand my show. As an instance, I was saying something about Mendelssohn one night, and a voice from the back demanded to know—"Who the -is 'Men-delsun' any- how ?"
MR. S. F. EDGE AND HIS WONDERFUL SIX-CYLINDER CAR. Mr. Edge's name is so well known in motor circles that it only need be mentioned in con- nection with any project to command immediate attention. His "Napier" is the pioneer of the six-cylinder motor, and although a few years ago the car was practically unknown it is now in the very front rank, and ever since it was placed upon the market, and the business was practic- ally in the development stage, each year's work has shewn a profit. These facts denote not only a good article, but great business capacity on the part of the management. Latterly the de- mand for the six-cylinder car has beéii rapidly growing, until now it is undoubtedly the most popular make, and Messrs. S. F. Edge, Limited, are the only firm in the position to be able to meet such demand, the other motor-car com- panies having devised their plant, &c., for the four-cylinder car. This places Messrs. S. F. Edge, Limited, in a most enviable position, and we understand that in order to meet the enor- mous business resulting therefrom they are about to make an issue of £ 75,000 in Ordinary shares. Two exceptionally strong points in the prospectus are the facts that the vendors take the whole of the purchase price in Ordinary shares, thus being exactly in the same position as the public, and that Messrs. Edge and Napier will be on the Board of the Company. There were no charges to be heard at the West Ham P,clice Count on Wednesday last. Dr. W. G.

LLANDUDNO FIELD CLUB. VISIT TO THE GREAT ORME'S HEAD. ARCHITECTURAL HISTORY OF ST. TUDNO'S CHURCH. On Saturday the members of the, Llandudno Field Club paid a visit to' the Great Orme's Head, under the leadership of Mr R. J. Gresley Jones. On Pen Dinas the circular dwellings and entrenchments were- inspected. Mean-bens who had previously visited Bryn Euryn, near L-landrillo Church, Conway Mountain,, and Pen-maeiumawT pointed out the similarity of the remains at Pen Dinas. On the west side, where the old road turns to Wyddfyd, a mass of ancient concrete- has been,, discovered in the line of the old fortification wall. This may have -been the work of a later race of people.. At St. Tudno's Church, to which the party next proceeded, the Rector -of Llandudno- (the Rev. Ll. R. Hughes) gave an interesting account of the architectural history of the edifice. The age of a church, said the Rector, may be dis- covered by a study of its .characteristics. The old churches of Wales are either of the Latin or the Oriental type. St. T'udnd s is of the latter order. Conway Church, like Conway Castle, on the other hand, is of the Laitin type. The Celtic or Eastern church is square or oblong in form., wiith four plain walls and no chaincel. The west door of St. 'T'udno's is of the early English style—a halfncdrcle arch, and the .chancel was built after the fifteenth cen- tury. A rounded arch window on the north side is the oldest opening. The porch has a roof of chestnut, with seats used in the old days, when the festival of the Welsh "eve" or vigil was held. At that festival fairs were arranged land hunting iappointments were made. In the odder days the church porch was bound up with the life of all the people. The points of special interest inside the church are the font. the carving upon which proves its ex- treme age; the other coffin lids (placed on the north side), which are from the tombs of the Lords of Gogiarth; and the s-creen at the, chan- cel steps with the gallery above on which the musicians stood. The Rector expressed his re- gret that the fiddle, viols, bassoons, and other instruments had disappeared from the churches, and said he would like to see an orchestra at the. side of the chancel opposite the organ,, with choir and stalls- for the ladies to assist in the musical service. The very best results might be. obtained according to the talent at command. The Rector's address was listened to with interest. After tea, at the Summit Hotel, a visit was paid to the Crom- Q lech. by Lord M-o-styn's permission, and to the Old Bishop's Quarry, where Mr Bezant Lowe, the geologist, spoke of the geological formation and history of the headland. By permission of Mr M'ason the ruins of the Gogarth Abbey were inspected, the party proceeding thither by way of the- old Monk's Path.

GREAT HAUL OF MACKEREL AT RHOS-ON- SEA. During this week large catches of mackerel have been made at the ancient fishing weir at Rhos-on-Sea. On Thursday the proprietor ('Mr F. Meier, of the Rhos Abbey Hotel) was over- whelmed by the quantity of fish, so much so that he wa.s at a loss to know how to, remove them before the tide returned. On hearing of the big catch large numbers of visitors and residents hastened to the weir, and for a nominal sum were allowed to carry away as many fish as they could. The number wias not appreciably diminished, though two carts were hard at work moving the mackerel out of the reach of the tide-, and large numbers of live fi.sh" were thrown over the- weir into the sela.
