WORK AND WORKERS. t ILt tBo .quarterly meeting of the Coal Con- II ciliation Board for the federated mining dis- tricts in England and North Wales held in London, Mr. F. J. Jones (Yorkshire), who presided, said -at the outset- that the proposals which the men had prepared for a new wage basis and a new agreement were published in the Press on July 10th, a week before they were received by the secretary to the coal- owners. The vice-chairman, Mr. Stephen Walsh, M.P., said they were in no way re- sponsible for the premature publication. The Chairman stated that the coalownera would be prepared to give careful considera- tion to the new wage proposals made to them by the representatives of the men on the Con- ciliation Board, and then meet the men s sec- tion of the Board for the full discussion of the proposals, together with any counter-pro- posals prepared by the, coalowners' side of the Board. Tiie pziooaeclings w«r» of. ooodingly brief -duration, occupying less than a quarter of an tour. It is likely to be some time, according to the Manchester Guardian, before the new agreement is finally completed. The men's proposals have to be first considered by the coalowners in the various districts, and they will formulate any amendments which they may consider to be necessary, and then they have to be discussed by the parties in the Con- ciliation Board. The main proposals sub- mitted to the coalowners as the basis of a new agreement lor a further period of three years provide for a new wage standard of 50 per eent. above the present wage standard of 1888, and & higher maximum wage. At the present moment wages in the English federated area stand at the maximum of 65 per cent. on the JB88 standard. According to ,a Labour correspondent the miners throughout the British coalfields have been warned by their officials to be prepared for another national strike, which may have to be declared at very short notice in support of the Scottish miners, and to obtain a settle- ment of all outstanding questions between miners and coalowners. In arbitrations in which employers arrange to redeem their liability to pay weekly com- pensation under the Workmen's Acts, it has been usual in Manchester for a separate sum -to be specified as costs for the workman s solicitor. At the Manchester County Court the other day, Judge Mellor, K.C., said that his attention had been drawn by members of the profession and others to the somewhat large scale of fees allowed in these cases. Some of them had been out of all proportion to the amount of work done in obtaining the awards, and in future he intended to disallow any costs which exceeded the B scale unless "the Registrar gave a certificate to the effect that there had been extra work which justified a higher remuneration. Attempts to introduce female labour into the Lancashire cloth warehouses, one of the few branches of the cotton and woollen trade up to now exclusively reserved for males, is meeting with a determined resistance by the branches of the Textile Warehousemen's Amalgamation. Nearly 200 operative bakers at Blackburn have presented notices because the masters refused their demand for improved pay. The men demand £2 weekly for foremen, 36s. for aecond hands, 34s. for adults, and improved pay for juniors. Four thousand engineering trades' labourers decided on Sunday at a meeting at Sheffield to accept the terms offered by the Employers' federation for a settlement of the wages de- mand made five months ago. The men now getting under 25s. weekly will receive 6d. advance instead of the shilling for which they asked, and those now receiving 25s. weekly will receive a shilling advance if they did not get an advance in July last. A special conces- sion of a shilling advance to cranedrivers, alingers, and engine-tenters is made. All the increases are to date from August 3rd. The fifty-three hours per week demand is left in abeyance. Further advances to North-Eastern Rail- way employees notified are the raising of locomotive timekeepers' wages from 25s. a week to a scale commencing at 26s. and rising to 30s., together with the concession of time and a-half for Sunday duty. Shed turners also receive an advance of Is. per week, and have their hours reduced from ten to nine. The advances date back to April 1st. By the end of the week there will be a good many farm labourers in Herefordshire out on strike in connection with the demand for higher wages, says a correspondent. The farmers in many cases state that they refuse to be dictated to, and many of them think that the labourer, with his cottage and garden, and his unlimited supply of cider, is better off than the labourer or the lower-class artisan in the towns. In some instances far- mers openly state that the men who have given notice will have to leave whether they wish to or not, and this has caused consider- • able consternation, as it is a development the men were not in the least prepared for. In many districts farmers have already raised the wages, and there the Workers' Unioo will not call upon the men to leave. A great grievance with a large number of civil servants whose permanent or established 8ervice was preceded by temporary or it4n tabligh,ed service is that now they are o?' the establishment the whole of the time of their temporary service is not allowed to eount for pension. Under the Superannuation Act of 1887, Section 3, power was given to the Treasury to recognise the whole of such tem- porary or unestablished service for pension, and this has been done in many instances. A petition is now being prepared by the All Ser- Tioe Pension Association of Civil Servants asking the Treasury to remove the disqualifi- cation entirely, especially as the non-recogni- tion of all unestablished service tends to throw many Civil servants in their old age upon the open labour market owing to their inability to live on their curtailed pensions. The dissatisfaction that exists among the sma of the Laudoa Eirm Biriiuul* am,. httiarm BUT; AJOIIUOU county council meeting tnis wetfk, a petition, signed by 1,069 members of the fire brigade, asking for increased wages and various other improvements in the condi- tions of their service, having been received. The firemen suggest that in future negotia- tions may be conducted on their behalf by the National Union of Corporation Workers. In this connection, however, the Fire Brigade Committee says that it has recently had under consideration the case of a fireman who three times refused to obey an order at a fire, and the man resigned when the Committee recom- mended his dismissal. The trade union has since demanded the man's reinstatement. Upon this point the .Committee states the action of the union must be considered as a formal effort of an outside union, which in- cludes among its members employees in ser- vices other than fire brigades, to induce the Council to accept their demand in a matter of disciplinary punishment, and therefore in- directly to.) acknowledge that the Council re- cognises in respect of its fire brigade service* the right of the men to use their trade union for official purposes. The 'Council has there- fore again to consider much the same problem that was presented to it last year and was not definitely answered. Six of the eight labourers; on strike at Alth- don, who were fined, with costs, £23 7s. at Saffron Walden Petty Sessions a month ago for assaulting and intimidating non-union men, were apprehended on Friday on war- rants and taken to Cambridge Gaol in de- fault of payment, two of them for two months, and four for fourteen days' hard labour. A large number of their fellow- strikers accompanied them to Bartiow Station and cheered them off.
FRENCH NAVAL AVIATOR KILLED. I Lieutenant Valensi, a nzival aviator, when flying a waterplane at a height of 500ft. at Juvisy on Monday, entered an air-pocket," and the machine fell to the earfch.

Surrey, the country branch of the Battersea tempor- aiJ- home for lost dogs. A JUDGE'S DISGUST AT BOXING. I Mr. Justice Joyce on Monday reiusea to facilitate a motion for an injunction against Carpentier, on the ground that boxing con- tests were so disgraceful that no assistance should be granted on either side. The matter was at once taken to the Court of Appeal, but without success. MOTHER OF NINETEEN. I Mary Ann Seiklon, of Darwen, charged with being drunk and disorderly, was stated to be the mother of nineteen children. She was fined 9s., and told if she appeared again I durmg the next twelve months she wo-ild have to go to an inebriates' home. MILL BREAKER SENTENCED. I At Salford Hundred Quarter Sessions John Green, twenty nine, labourer, was sentenced to three years' penal servitude on three charges of breaking into mills, two at Roch- dale and one at Bacup.

I Two baskets of strawberries, the berries averaging 3in. in circumference, were pre- sented to the Duke of Connaught at Dorion on the occasion of the Duchess's birthday, says Reuter. AUSTRIAN DOCTORS LEAVE LONDON. I A number of Austrian doctors who had come to London to attend the International Clinical Congress have had to curtail their visit. Large numbers of delegates from Russia, Germany, and Italy are included in the 600 medical men from the Continent, and they are much perturbed at the possibility of having to leave for their respective countries before the close of the Congress.

I AGRICULTURAL NOTES. I BY A PRACTICAL FARMER* I ABERDEEN-ANGUS. No breed has been so successful as tins in recent years at the leading fat stock shows, and none gives a higher percentage of carcase in proportion to live weight. It is not surpris- ing, therefore, that the black-polled breed enjoys such a great reputation in many parts of the world, and especially in Canada and the United States. In the Argentine also, where hitherto the Shorthorn has been almost 'supreme, it is rapidly making headway, and there was never greater interest in the valuable economic qualities of the breed. A trophy is contri- buted from this country by the breed society for competition at the great national show in the Republic, and having been won outright, is to be followed by the offer of another. At the recent thirty-fifth annual general meeting of the Aberdeen-Angus Cattle Society it was mentioned that the society's member- ship had been increased by forty-two, and that -they had received Royal patronage, the Prince of Wales having joined the society. Their finances were in a very satisfactory condition, and entries in the society's "Herd Book" were practically 3.700, which was the largest in the history of the society, the next largest being in Vol. 27, when there were 3,358 entries. The export certificates were very satisfactory: last vear they were 148. com- pared with 131 in the previous year. Although last year the exports continued to be relatively few on account of the restrictions, the hope was expressed that in a short time these re- strictions wouM be removed, and that the pro- sperity to which breeders had been looking forward might become a matter of fact.. » » AN ACTIVE FERTILISER. I notice with interest that nitrate of am- monia, as an artificial manure, was tried on the Royal Agricultural Society's experimental farm at Woburn last season, against nitrate of soda and sulphate of ammonia. When em- ployed as a top-dressing on wheat, the quan- tities of these manures were so regulated as to supply 301b. of ammonia per acre, for which only 711b. of the new manure was required, M compared with 1191b. of sulphate of ammonia and 1531b. of nitrate of soda. The yield of wheat was about a bushel per acre more where the new manure was applied than where nitrate of soda was used, though the bulk of straw was smaller, and sulphate of ammonia gave about one and a-half bushel of wheat less than nitrate of soda. The advan- tage of using nitrate of ammonia depends, of course, upon its price, as compared with the prices of nitrate of soda and sulphate of am- monia. The fact that its price is normally very high explains why it is not used as a fertiliser though its value for the purpose has long been appreciated. Its effect on vegetation is so strong that a difference will be noticed in three days if plants are watered with a gallon of water containing only half an ounce of the salt. It is a pity it cannot be more cheaply produced. It is, I believe, a good deal used in the manufacture of explosives, but is also of great importance as the usual source of the anaesthetic gas (nitrous oxide), which is ad- ministered by dentists. It gives off this gas on being heated. <* I INSTRUCTING FARM LADS. I A small but important experiment was tried last winter in Kent, twenty farm lade between sixteen and twenty years of age being given a month's instruction in various kinds of practical farm work. The results were thoroughly satisfactory, and the experi- ment is to be repeated next winter. A very interesting account of it is given in the cur- rent Journal of the Board of Agriculture by Mr. G. H. Garrad, Agricultural Organiser for Kent. Kent, he says, is already provided with a large and well-equipped agricultural college, at which both long and short courses for farmers' sons are held periodically. But the object of the experiment was to cater for a claas of agriculturist which has so far received very little recognition. The instruction of the farm labourer is only now beginning to be considered. It is true that his work is mainly manual, but it must be remembered that whatever may be the piece of work in hand, there is always a cor- rect and an incorrect way of doing it. A really first-class farmer will see that his young labourers, when they first come on to his farm, are instructed in the proper way of doing their work, but it more often happens that he has not the time, or possibly the ability, to show them himself, and does not ensure that some capable person teaches them. The result is that they have to learn for themselves. A sharp lad will usually dis- cover the correct way after more or less waste of time and expense to his master, whilst a less bright boy may never learn at all. The result is that the latter's work is badly and slowly done, he breaks his tools, and when he is put on to piecework he finds hi is incapable of earning a living wage. A boy should be taught the right way to set about the task allotted to him when nb first takes up farm work, and, furthermore, it is very desirable that his interest should be stimulated by having explained to him the reason why the work is done, and why one method of doing it is better than another. Farmers would do well to read the article referred to, and, having read it, should see whether something cannot be done to provide a similar course for boys in their own district. A POSSIBLE NEW FARMING INDUSTRY. I The proposal made by the Imperial Motor Transport Council, through its chairman, the Hon. Arthur Stanley, to raise a fund to in- vestigate the possibilities of the general and economic employment of alcohol as a fuel for internal combustion engines, had a great in- terest for farmers. As is well known to all who have anything to do with motors, the price of petrol has this year reached a record high price, and in spite of temporary reduc- tions, will probably become still dearer, while the demand grows ever greater. As I stated recently, I believe that internal combustion engines would be a great deal more used than they are on farms if fuel were cheaper, and their greater use would be all to the advan- tage of the farmer. The supply of petrol is necessarily limited, and is now being drawn upon without the slightest regard for the future. Various substitutes for it have been suggested and tried, but the only one that hns any prospect of proving a satisfactory substi- tute is alcohol. j Undoubtedly alcohol has its. drawbacks, so j far as the present types of motor engines are joncerned; but it would probably be no diffi- cult matter for engineers to adapt them satis- factorily. For stationary engines it is already an efficient though expensive fuel, and the reason why hitherto engineers have not troubled much about trying to adapt the motor-car to the consumption of alcohol is chiefly because of its cost, which we are told is as high as it is on account of the great cost of maintaining Government inspectors in the factories. These and other difficulties can probably be overcome, and that is the object rill the iorannsiai.fund- w ny wie suDjeei nas so much interest for farmers and landowners is that whereas we import petrol, we could produce all our own alcohol from any plant material containing starch or sugar. The materials at present used in this country for the production of alcohol are malt, maize, barley, oats, rice, and molasses. In the United States maize, rye, and molasses are mostly used; in Ger- many potato starch and in France beet- sugar and molasses. The probability is that for in- dustrial alcohol the crops that would be chiefly extended here would be potatoes and sugar beet, if a regular and extensive demand grew tip, and it must be remembered that a considerable residue is left, which is of value as a stock food. Spoilt cereal crops and potatoes are well suited for alcohol produc- tion, and would, therefore, increase in value, while peat and wood waste can also be used, enabling much land at present almost or quite unproductive to be made capable oj earning some return.

SPORTS AND PASTIMES. At the Manchester Athletic Club's sports at Fallow fie Id, which .were witnessed by upwards of 3,000 persons, the .sprint champion, W. R. Applegwth, in an attempt to beat the 138 yards record of 12 3-5sec. made by the 1908 Olympic champion R. E. Walker in 1909, won the race by ,a yard from C. W. Taylor, of the Surrey A.C., hot. recorded exactly a second more than the South African's best. V. H. A. d'Arcy was third a few inches be- hind the Surrey man. Applegarth was oon- -eerned in another attempt on record, which Also failed. The Polytechnic team, consist- ing of Applegarth, D'Arcy, J. J. Barker (the Midland Counties champion)., and J. Rooney, set out to beat the 42 6-10see. for 400 metres held by the German team (Bohr, Kern, Her- man, and Raw), but, although beating the Surrey A.C. by four yards, tocJk 43 4-5600. for the ..distance. J C. English, the 440 yards ihurdles cham- pion and steeplechase ex-champion, won the half-mile county championship of Lancashire by serpen yards from the mile ex-champion, E. Owen, in 2min. 4 2-5see.; and in a two miles team sjtce G. W. Hutson, holder :of the one and four miles championships, w«i by five yards from his fellow club member, A. H. Nicholls, the international cross-country champion, in 9min. 51 1 -5sec, Surrey A.C., with the lowy score of seven points, won the team contest. Many ecack cyclists also competed at the meeting, and in a five miles scratch race for the 100 guineas Rhodes Coronation Gold Vase, the Essex champion, D. G. J. Elliott, won by half a length from A. J. Denny, of the Rover Racing Club, in 13min. 29 l-5sec. W, A. Ormiston, the holder of the quarter-mile, mile, and five miles N.C.U. championships. fell at the bell and brought several others down with him. An inter-city cycle team race of four laps was won by Liverpool, Man- chester being second, The handicaps, for which enormous entries were received, were all well contested. R. S. Burley, of the Polytechnic H., won the 300 yards from the back mark by two yards in 32 l-5sec.; another Polytechnian, E. C. Pierey, with thirty-eight yards start, won the half-mile cycle handicap; and W. Wood, of the Salford Police, with the assistance of 110 yards start, won the mile flat (for which a record entry of 180 was received) in 4min. 24 3-5sec. The Northern Counties road walking cham- pionship, held over twenty miles at Blackley, Manchester, was won by the Lancashire W C. The Yorkshire W.C. was second, and North Manchester H. third. The winning club also supplied, in J. Sutton and F. Cooper, the first two men home. A. Kidd, of North Manchester, was third. Sutton covered the course in 4hr. lmin. 7s. The feature of the closing stages of the Lawn Tennis Championships of Scotland at the Craiglockhart Courts, Edinburgh, on Saturday, was the triumph of the Irish com- petitors. The final round of the Gentlemen's- Championship saw two Irish representatives fight for the honour, which was ultimately gained by J. F. Stokes. In the concluding round Stokes defeated H. N. Craig in three sets. Two Irish pairs fouajlit out the Doubles' Championship final, which ended in H. M Read and G. F. Stokes defeating H. N. Cr.iig and N. Meldon. The Ladies' Championship resulted in the holder, Mrs. Robin Welsh, re- taining the title by defeating Miss Fergus in three sets in the 'final round. In the final round of the Ladies' Doubles, however, Mrs. Herriott and Miss Fergus won from Mrs. Welsh and Mrs. H. Wilson. In the Thames on Saturday, from the Anglian Boat House, near Kew Railway Bridge, to the gangway opposite Putney Pier, a distance of a little over five miles, the Amateur Swimming Association held its long- distance championship. The event was originally known as the Lords and Commons race, and was swum for from Putney to Westminster. J. G. Hatfield, who won last year, was fully expected to win, because he is in fine training for the Olympic Games at Berlin in 1916. There were twenty-four en- trants for the race, twenty-two of whom started. The competitors included many of the best distance swimmers of the day. The race resulted in an easy win for Hatfield, who led from start to finish, with W. H. Melhuish and P.C. Giles occupying second and third positions-a repetition of last year's race. Among those in the rear, G. W. Leader and G. D. Betts showed the best form, and will doubtless be heard of again in distance races, both swimming easily and well within themselves throughout the race after seeing pursuit of the leaders was hopeless. The Thames Punting Club had a most suc- cessful meeting at Shepperton on Saturday. The championship was won by F. C. Covell, who beat J. H. Seeker in the final by a length in fimin. llsec. J. A. C. Croft, the holder, went overboard in his. heat. In the doubles championship F. C. Covell &nd M. Winstan- ley beat J. H. Seeker and J. A. C. Croft. The Royal Cinque Porte Yacht Club's re- gatta finished at Dover on Saturday, when there was very good racing in a strong west by north wind, a big sea running. It blew so hard that it was thought prudent to shorten the courses to twenty miles for the first and n for the %oeo-nd, rat,-os Creole jmlit mainsail ana 111M1 to retire, arter wnien fiJooO- hound took the lead and won easily from Carib, which took second prize. Sonya, I Camellia., and Ma'oona did not start. In the second race only ;My Lady Maude ax/d j (Guenora. started, and the latter finished ahead of My Lady Iffaude, who had to allow her 15min. 50sec. on the shortened course, ,and won easily, & protest being decided in (Guenora's favour. 'A remarkable mountaineering feat is re- ported from Penrith, a "boy of five years hav- ing climbed Helvellyn. Arthur Flint, son of Mr. J. Flint, Home Farm, Patterdale, went with Mr. William Pattinson, a well-known dalesman, and they travelled by Grisdale Brow and Striding Edge, and the lad tackled the last climb to the ridge very pluckily. After -a. rest at the summit the journey down was made by way of Swirrel Edge, but as the hoy continued very fresh the trip was extended to Red Tarn and Grisdale Brow, home being reached in six hours from the start. There is no local record, says (the Yorkshire Post, of one so young having climbed the mountain by this difficult route. The Risley Rifle Meeting concluded on Saturday with the final stage of the King's Prize. Serg-eant Dewar, 4th Royal Scots, was the winder of the Gold Medal, after shooting off a tie with Private Fulton, Queen's Westminster, who was King's Prize- man two years ago. Private Corrie, 7th H.L.I., took the St. George's Vase, and in shooting off a tie with Sergeant Wood, East Riding Yeomanry, for second place, Cor- poral Omanundsen, H.A.C., won the Silver Cross, the Yorkshireman taking the Bronze. The Roberts Challenge Cup went to H.M.S. Excellent, and the House of Commons eight beat the Lords' team in the contest for the Vizianagram Cup. The boxing match held at Bordeaux on Sunday between Carpentier and Kid Jackson was one-sided and uninteresting. Kid Jack- son devoted himself almost entirely to guard- ing his face, and did not get in a single blow. Carpentier, on the other hand, hit his oppo- nent without interruption, sending him to the ground several times. In the fourth round Kid Jackson was disqualified for a blow which it was claimed struck too low, the Frenchman being declared the victor. Frank McGuinness, the American ^onvv- weight, sustained another defeat at Hull on Saturday, when he was knocked out in the first round by Con O'Kelly, the local man. The contest, which was scheduled to go twenty rounds, was for £ 200 a-side and a purse. McGuinness was down in the first lOsec., and before the bout had progressed 2min. he was sent down with a left to the I .)int, this time to be counted out.
The Mexican Federals defeated & body ot followers of General Zapata at Ozumba, a short distance from the capital. Two hundred Zapatistas were killed and wounded. In two cases before the Otley Bench motor- cyclists were ordered to pay the costs for allowing identification plates to be obscured by their coat tails. A flusher in the L.C.C.'s service, named H. C. Cock, who found a brooch-pendant worth about E25 in a sewer last September, is to be allowed to keep the jewel, as the owner can- not be discovered. A threatened strike of tramway em- ployees in Newcastle has been averted at the eleventh hour by the men accepting the con- cessions—stated to amount to £ 3,000 annu- ally—of the Tramways Committee. So strong were the seas on Saturday that two excursion steamers from Ardrossan were unable to enter Portrush Harbour, and had to run to Derrv. The 350 passengers were despatched by train to their destinations. General Sir Horace Smith-Dorrien, in Southern Command orders notifies that the photographing of aircraft is not permissible within a distance of forty yards. Photo- graphers are warned that any infringement will entail prosecution under the Official Secrets Act. About forty men from the railway works at Ashford, Kent, marched to Downing-street on Saturday and lodged a protest with Mr. Asquith's secretary against the Government's attitude on the suffrage question. Captain E. C. Wright, who was killed while playing polo, was buried at Gibraltar on Saturday, representatives from the United States battleship Maine and the French cruiser Cassard being present. Half the police force of Rockville Centre, Long Island, New York (which contains six men), are in prison charged with burglaries which realised £ 15,000. They are stated to have acted frequently as detectives for their own crimes. Learning that there are several pieces of armour at Windsor belonging to suits shown at the Tower of London, the King has com- manded them to be returned to complete the suits, and they can now be seen in the White Tower. Charles Bange, thirty, well dressed, and said to be an actor, was remanded at Maryle- iione on charges of stealing and unlawfully re- ceiving a bronze statue entitled Woundecl Swallow," value £ 10, from the Dore Gallery, New Bond-street. ♦

News from the Balkans has created much concern here, and has had the effect of stopping busi- ness both in combed tops and yarns. Both topmakers and spinners, in fact, are refusing to discuss further business until they see how events turn, and in some cases consignments of yarn for the Continent have been stopped. Meantime, prices are not quotably changed. The home trade is also nnsatisfaptorv

KEVIEW OF THE CORN TRADE. The wheat gradient this week is between North and South, but it is the South which: shows the lowest averages, a feature alto- gether unusual: Manchester, 37s.; Chio Chester, 32s. 9d. range, 4s. 3d. The barley gradient is between two North era towns: Berwick. 26s. 4d.; Manchester, 258.; range, Is. 4d. There are so few markets now with barley to sell that the gradient is more or less farcicaJ. Staples of which there is abundance on spoil are prominently: (1) Canadian flour; (2) hari- cot beans; (3) beet sugar; (4) feeding rice. Buti there is nothing like abundance of any wheats oats, barley, pulse, or meal, and the demand for linseed for retail use is so good that there is not the slightest sense of depression either at Mark Lane or Hull, the two controlling ez¿ changes for the staple. lfark Lane Express- CURRENT PRICES OF BRITISH GRAIN AND FLOUR IN MARK LANE.
