WHO'S Tl,!iE LADY P'l ■■■ i ■— i ■ LONDON SOCIETY SENSATION. ALLEGED BLACKMAIL: ACCUSED DISCHARGED. At Westminster Poiice Court on Friday, fc::e further hearing of the case was continued in which James Henry Maur, of Drydcn London, was charge- vith demanding moncy with men- aces from ';wphine. Princess of Thurn and Taxis, hving Westmiuster. On Thursday it WJ..s urged by counsel that a lady living at Hamp&ic-ad was seek- ing an in junction to restrain the prosecu- trix from using the title, and that this lady had no oonuectiori wil,h the case. On Friday counsel for the defence sub- mitted that there was nothing to show that a ktter of menace sent to r he prosecutrix was inspired by the accused, nnd there was not a rag of evidence against him. No attempt had been made to show that th" leiter was in the handwriting of IaU", and there was no motive for the oilence as the defendant was a man of meai s. Counsel charged Mr. j Brims, who had figured in the ca?e, with TELLING AN ABSOLUTE LIE in saving that the prisoner sent him to the post-office for replies to the letters. The magistrate said 'hat he thought the evidence was entirely inadequate to shov. that defendant had anything to do with the letters. The facts of the case showing that the let tens were written seemed to justify further consideration, and he would place the notes and documents before the Public Prosecutor for further consideration and in- vestigation. The prisoner in the meantime would be discharged. The decision was recei ved with some ap- plause, and the accused was released.
MR. BENTON S BODY j U.S.A. SECRETARY'S* QEMAND TO VILLA. SIR EDWARD GREY'S OFFICIAL STATEMENT. Sir Edward Grey stated in the House of Commons on Monday that, according to a. dispatch from the United States Consul at Juarez to Mr. Secretary Bryan, Mr. Benton was executed by Villa, the leader of the Mexicau revolutionists, after a court-martial (m the charge of having plotted to assassin- ate Villa and of having come to his house armed. Sir Edward added that the fact that he was communicating on the subject with the United States Government did not imply that the latter was held responsible for the incident. It only meant that the United States Government was alone able to exercise any influence in discovering the truth of the matter. Mr. Bryan has requested the Consuls at Juarez and Chihuaha to demand from Gen- eral Villa- the body of Mr. Benton. An au- topsy will disclose whether he died from a single bullet or at the hands of a firing squad. So far no reply has been received. WHERE ARE THE OTHER TWO? Sir Cecil Spring-Rice conferred with Mr. Bryan on Monday, and impressed on him the necessity of sparing no pains to ascertain the fate of the missing Englishmen Messrs. Lawrence and Curtis. They are stated to have been present at the fateful interview between Mr. Benton and General Villa.

￼ ￼ I 0l,u""TGRS. ■ i ■■ ■ CARELESS SWANSEA. 11.000 NEGLECTFUL FAMILIES. I In view of the large number of people on ) the Swanaea Insurance Panel it is nt,reA- ing to ascertain lo what extent the doctors themselves are benefitting. There are 35,000 paople on the Swansea doctors' panel. 7s. a year is paid in respect of each. Consequently £ 12,250 is disburse* arnoug the medical men. There are 33 doctors on the panel. Working out the amount, by the numbei paiticipating the average works out at £ jo~ a head, but some doctors have far more patients than others, and consequently tlic incomes under the Insurance Act vary greatly. There are four doctors who between then- have 10.000 patients. They have assistance, it is true. Thus there is Bc.500 to be di vided roughly ¡bv four. A "Daily Post -jr. A I reporter, in talking with a well-known Swar clea medical man en the panel, learnt tha' in the majority of cases the Act had playef great Jiavoc with the doctors' private pra( tises. This relates allmoat wholly to th, working where now all th previous male patients come on the Act. It was put clldidlv to the doctor in que- .lz p ut c- a,, tion as to whether men had the same fait) in the healing powers as when they paid fr. the doctors services direct. The answer wa- in tie affirmative. "You see," said the medics 1 s'entleman, '^everyone has a fn choice of doctor, and if thev do not act satifc faction from on? thev will transfer to an other, consequently it is to a medical mar'' best interest to do all he possibly can for h; ppt-irnts in every rearject. Besides, nat'.ent; satisfied recommend others. An idea wa' mooted a little time ago to restrict the num- her of patients a doctor should have b' this would certainly not be fair, for indi vidua] choice woul d be restricted. It re t- with the doctors to know what number the\ can deal with, "A thousand rriVhi'srit one and CAA other. No medical wants to overwor' himself.

"RHYS LEWIS." Welsh Drama: Performance at Morriston. An excellent performance of the dramatis- ed version of "Rhys Lewis" was given by the Plasmarl Dramatic Society (under the oonductorship of Mr. J. P. Walters) at the Forward Movement Hall, Morriston, on Sat urday night. The acting throughout reached a high standard, and especially was this the case with Mr. J. P. Walters, whose impersona- tion of Thomas Bartley left nothing to be desired. Mr. Walters was the life and soul of the production. During the intervals be- tween the acts Miss M. H. Davies gave selec- tions on the harp. The additional characters were imperson- ated by Mr. W. Phillips, Mr. E. Johns, Mr. Jen^in Thomas, Mr. Henry King, Mr. Thos. Davies, Mr. J. Evans, Mr. J.

IN STORM'S TEETH. I CRIPPLED STEAMER'S PLIGHT. REFUGE FOUND AT SWANSEA. Thrilling Experiences The coasting steamer Hayle, of Hayle (Cornwall), which anived at the North Dock Basin, Swansea, on Sunday afternoon's tide, had some exciting experiences earlier in the day when in the height of a hurricane she had to abandon the s.s. Seaforth, of Bristol, which she was towing. The Hayie sighted the Seaforth, which had had her engines broken down, about 15 miles off Padstow. This was a.t half-past five on Saturday evening. The Seaforth was taken in tow after considerable difficulty had been experienced in getting the tow-rope aboard, on account of the gale blowing. For twelve miles she was towed in the teeth of the storm, when THE TO W-ROPE PARTED. I In the darkness the Hayle, after three- quarters of an hour's manoeuvring, managed to get another rope aboard, the sea running high and threatening both vessels. When the tow-rope had bee.n again secured the Hayie, which was bound for Swansea, brought the Seaforth up Channel another 13 miles, when the rupe agall-i parted. The conditions at this time—half-past one o'clock Oil Sunday morning-were such that it was impossible to get another rope aboard or launch the ship s boats. Consequently the Hayle had to abandou the Soaforth in Lundy Race. Captain Clemence, of the Hayle, put into Ilfracombe and told them of the Seaforth's position. Seen subsequently at Swansea, Captain Clemence said it was the WORST NIGHT IN HIS EXPERIENCE, I
and he never wished to have another like it. The seas washed over both vessels, and it wau as much as he could do to breast the gale. "The Seaforth," he said, "was helpless with her brokan-dovwi engines, and it was with the greatest difficulty that they could .secure her. The ropes parted twice, and it would have been madness to have tried to launch a boat." LIFTED OUT OF WATER. RESCUING STEAMER'S HEROIC STRUGGLE. When the Hayle left the Seaforth in Lundy Race, the lattci was at the mercy 01 tic waves for hours, being builctted by the stÜdU with heavy stas washing her from and to end. Her distress signals were ai cigh o o'clock on Sunday morning sigiitea by the s.s. Mayflower, of Harwich, bound ;ight ior Burry Port from Plymouth for coal. i'he Maytiower THREW A LIFEBUOY LINE overboard, and though this was missed by -he Seaforth, a second attempt was moix- cucoesafui. The Seaforth now secure was towed along in the direction of Swansea, bu;. Uie rope parted as in the case of the Hayle. Fortunately another rope and chain were secured, and this hel(I fast to the Swansea port. Capt. Palmer, :n command of the May- flower, a small coasting steamer, said his boat WAS LIKE A CORK I io the gale, and he describt.d the latter as terrible in its fores. "At times," he said to a "Post" reporter, "the Mayflower was .fuel bodily right out of the water, and the Seaforth's crew stated they could see rignt -iiiderneath her." Instead of running for Burry Port with tow she came to Swansea. The Sea. tuith was bound Jor Fowey, it, Cornwall. Capt. Sanders, of the Seaforth, said the s. ier they experienced raneed SET WEEN A GALE AND HURRICANE I ,Iltcl considering nis ship's breakdown, he ■\as very pleased that his vessel had come through it in the way she had. The seas ooured over her in the darkness (he told a Daily Post reporter), and lie could do lothing wkh her circulating pump and steer- ig gear out of order off Padstow. If we had tried to work the engines," tif stated,, we should soon have been flooded fut. As it was, we were inches down when we were towed into port." Considerable damage had been done to the boat by the storm. Before the Hayle reached her, the Sea- forth had been in cow of two trawlers from Lowestoft. One of the latter had got her steering fouled by the rope, with the result that she had to be towed into Pad- tow by thtt other trawler. TRAWLER'S ROUGH EXPERIENCE. I The Swansea steam trawler Roche Castle, "hich arrived at the South Dock on Monday norning, reported having had a rou gh, time :1 the gale, shipping a good deal of water, which extinguished the boiler fires. One of the crew got washed overboard, but managed to scramble back again. The crew had a busy time baling the little craft out.

ji Mysterious Signal runs through your system every time your blood is invaded by one of the innumerable microbes of disease. It is a call to arms.' It summons to your defence the millions of white "soldier" cells which are the invisible garrison of your body. If you are in good health, these living white cells instantly seize upon the invading microbes and destroy them. But when your power of resistance is impaired, the garrison of soldier cells may be too weak or too few for a successful defence, and the invading microbes win the day. You must strengthen your garrison by taking Virol. An elaborate series of investigations recently conducted at a well- known sanatorium has definitely proved that, after twelve weeks' Virol diet, the power of the white cells of the blood to destroy microbes was four times as great as that of the average blood of those who had not been fed on Virol. Everyone-men, women and children—especially those who are delicate, wasting or run down, should take Virol regularly in order to replenish the blood with the white cells that defend the body. A tea- rpoonful should be taken thrice daily after meals-in a little warm milk if preferred. Feed your baby on Virol. It builds its tissues and defends it from the illnesses of childhood.

EXILES LAND. DAY OF SURPRISES. I HOME LEADERS' EFFORTS SUCCEED. "Under Protest" After a day full of surprises, the nine deported Labour leaders are now In Lorsaan, oorntortabiy housed in a Tottenham'oourt-road hotel. After some parley wiih the English Labour leaders, they reconsidered their position, and came ashore. Following is a diary of the events of the day:— 8 a.m.-Arrival of the Umgeni. Ex- iles refuse to land, notwithstanding advice of Reception CcmmiUao, who were refused permission to go on board. Noon.—deception Committee put out in tug again, and hand up letter renewing auvice. 1 p.rh.-Exiies hand out statement for Press, and suggest Recaption Com- mittee should get permission from owners to come on board. 2 p.m.-Perniission granted, and two Labour M. P. 's go on board. 3 p.m.—After hour's conference, ex- lies land at Cravesend, after making a formal written protest that they landed without pi-ejudict to their iegai posi- tion, and proceeded to London by train. A "Daily Mail reporter, taking up the thread irom tile eany refusal 01 uli-e de- portees to land, writes:—For long after the committee's second expedition to the L m- ge-ni the issues hung in the balance. Ar- rived at the side of the Umgeni agam they exIicrted, they pleaded, th,ev reasoned, they offered again the licit banquet; they tempted with the green fields and demonstration of Hyde ParK. Even the ship s officers were moved to pity. They haua-ed down to ilr. Seddon, with their best wish/as for his success, a bottle of whisky. But the exiles were adamant. The most that they would promise was a further con- ference on the point" at the luncheon table." Mr. Henderson and Ca.-an un- happy Co.—went ash.ore at Groveserid and tried a new .nove. They asked the owners of the I' mgeni for permission to board her. This was granted in respect of Mr. Hender- son and Mr Bowerman Amid many appeals to "Do your best, old men," and DON'T FORET. ABOUT THE DIXNER." they set oil on the last appeal. They were the first men, apart from officials, to gain admission to the Urrrgerd. This was at 12.45 p.m. They met the South Africans, and Mr. Bain and Mr Pontsma f>igain declared that they would not leave the Uingeni until forcibly ejected. Mr. Henderson arg-ued that their protest would be just as ef- fective legallv if .they made it formally and 1 retired gracefully. beeide,. tll-,e were the dinner, the hospitality, the hotel awaiting them. These were good words, and the nine decided to think the matter over. For an hour Mr. Henderson and I r. Bowenmn paced the quaxter-deck. Then Mr. Poutsmm stooped up and whispered j something. We in the lannotu\s below could not hear it But from the h''(;(' and happy smile that err braced all the comers of Mr. Hend erson's face and spawd in happy rip- pies till his clothes quivered, we knew what the message was "TIlEY WTTTi LAND I Tt was shouted a moment later to the waiting boat.

I In the matter of luc^asre also thev natu- 1 rally travelled extremely light. Mr. Craw- j ford, for example, had ALL I-US GOODS TN A CTG W. BOX. and Mr. Livingstone declared that he was wearing a Government overcoat. Grave send all through seemed to take the great events very calmly, but the sabse- quent procession to the station would have stirred the heart of a Caesar. It was Mr. Henderson's proud and martial bearing that did it (continued the "Daily Mail" man). He walked at the bead of the exiles liVe a Roman general bringing gladiators to the Colosseum. It was a great, an imposing siaht. A butcher paused in the act of trim- ming a chop; two milliners ra.n to their shop door to gaze. The exiles themselves were very, very human, broii7<d, and for the moment, at any rate, obviously happy. Then, and dar- ing the train journey to "f^oridon later, I had man-, opportunities of tnl'drc to them, and whetVrT their motives be sinister, as General Smuts declares, or not, they could hardly be less unlike fb,, conception of them induced by his recorded descriptions. Mr. Bain and Mr. Poutsma are the com- manding figures, physically as well as in- tellectually. Mr. Bain is the more silent and rugged type, Mr. Poutsma a CLEVER THINKER AND FACILE I TALKER, whose views are well put and command con iideration. These two men seem to be at least the equals in intellect of any English strike lea- ders thrown to the surface in recent years. The rest of the exiles are less interesting- Scotsmen, for the most part, of a type and speech so common in the north that on wondered to believe they were from South Africa. ADMIRATION OF BOTHA'S METHODS! Two or three of the exiles expressed quite (pen and unstinted admiration for the or- ganisation by General Botha of the details of theiT deportation. They were all full of stories of the vov- age. Two South African detectives accom- panied them from Johannesburg right to Gravesend, and the exiles declined to sit at table or converse with them. They never exchanged a sangle word. Several of the exiles were very short of clothes, and a passenger gave several of them collars. Several had only one shirt a piece, which they washed themselves at suit- able intervals, retiring to privacy mean- while. WHY THEY WANTED TO I STAY? The Menu of the Deportees on I Board. I The following was the exiles' menu on the voyage:— Breakfast, at 8.30.-Quak-er oats, fried Dover soles, grilled rump steak and onions, broiled bacon, fried eggs, American dry hash, curry and rice, rice cakes and syrup, snow and chip potatoes, cold roast mutton, toast and rolls, preserves, tea, coffee, and cocoa. Luncheon, at one o'clock.—Thick gravy wrap, fricassee of tripe, curried vegetable and rice, snow and jacket potatoes, cold sal- mon, braised beef, York ham, Bologna sau- sage, veal and ham pie, roast mutton, cheese, pickles, tomato salad, stewed apricots and rice, assorted pastry, vanilla ices, bananas. Dinner, at 6.,30.-Hors d'ceuvres; puree Chasseur; boiled salmon, sauce Ravigote: asparagus au beurre; roast turkey; roast sirloin of beef, braised York ham and Ma- deira sauce; French beans, baked and boiled potatoes; plum-pudding and brandy sauce, red currant jelly, pastry pineapple, I grenadillas rices cheese coffee.

TRAINED AND UN- TRAINED. I LEYELLING-UP TEACHERS' I SALARIES. At Neath Borough E-ciucation Committee jn Tuesday, Ald. Hopkin Morgan, J.P., pre- siding, the Finance Committee recommended an increase of P,5 a year to the salaries of he staff of St. Joseph's Catholic School. --his was agreed to. Two trained certificated teachers from Ald. Davies' Non-provided Schools applied for am increase in salary, and one of them Miss Snow) pointed out that whereas she was only receiving BIOO, the headmistress at ;,he Melin Schools, who was untrained, re- ceived L110. The applicants had four and five years* service respectively under the committee. The Chairman suggested that the question be referred to the Staffing Committee to be dealt with. Mr. W. E. Rees: I move that we I DEAL WITH IT NOW. I I think that they should be paid at least as I much as untrained teachers, and I move that their salaries be increased to L113 in both cases. Ald. Charles said he understood that re- cently an arrangement was made that the teachers in the non-provided and provided schools should be paid the same scale. Mr. John Rees seconded the resolution to increase the salaries of the applicants to L110, and this was carried. The salary of Dr. J. H. Morris as schoolt doctor was increased from £ 100 to E125.

DOESN'T LIKE THE ACT. SWANSEA MAKES AN INSUR- ANCE RECORD. At Swansea Police Court on Wednesday, Arthur Rinder, fruit merchant, Landore, was charged with a batch of offences under the Insurance Act-failing to pay a contri- bution for the week commencing July 14th in respect to an employe, Myfanwy Davit, failing to return the fifth and sixth quarterly insurance cards of Myfanwy Davies; the sixth quarterly cards of Annie J. Saunders; and failing to pay a contribution in respect to her for the week commencing October 13th. Defendant admitted the charges. Mr. A. T. James (instructed by Mr. J. Haydn Jones, Welsh National Health Com- missioners) prosecuted, and said whilst de t fendant had deducted the money from the girls' wages he had not stamped the cards- The Commissioners took a serious view of the case; he had been written to three or four times, but had taken no notice. In Swansea there had had to be .n MORE PROSECUTIONS THAJN AIM OTHER PLACE in South Wales, added Mr. James, and the Commissioners desired the Bench to make an example of this case. Myfanwy Davies was called and said she had given her cards to her employer and had never had them back, though he deducted 3d. for every week. Annie Satinders said I went to see him last week about my card and he chucked me out." Through the delay in getting her fifth card she had had difficulty in getting sick benefit. Mr. James said that there were 27 weeks' arrears in respect to the girl Davies, and eight weeks in regard to Saunders. Defendant said he had sent stamps for the arrears to the office at Cardiff on Sun- day. The Bench fined defendant J31 on each summons (P,5 in all) and ordered him t. the arrears—13s. 6d. in one case and 4s. in the other, and given a month to pay.
Mr. Mark Hambourg, who was in Swansea recently, had an amusing adventure at Ply- mouth on Saturday. After appearing at a concert with Ada Crossley he sat up rather later than usual, only to find after some time a man's leg poking through the hotel window. He promptly seized the leg and held it till the police came. Interviewed at Cardiff, the famous violinist described the incident as a "stupid affair." A man put his leg through the window," he said. "and ■ tried to get something, but he did not get much for'arder." "Was it a burglar?" he was asked. Yes, I suppose so," replied Mr. Hambourg.
