-r The Man in the Street. Aldermen and councilors can do worse than enjoy their holidays when they may. Anyhow, this is the lesson that strikes one on reading about the adven- tures of the mayor and corporation of Bufton-on-Trent when they recently took thelx lives into their hands and visited the borough sewage farm to inspect a large prize bull bearing the appropriate cognomen of "Little Willie. It is pos- sible tl.t this gentle name was respon- sible 'for the false hopes that swelled to the summit of their proud civic breasts. Theyt. were cruelly disillusioned when the animal was driven into a ring. where there was barely room for "Little Wilie," much less anybody else. It appears that the bull was not im pressed by the appearance of the representatives of municipal dignity. He bent his head and proceeded to make a closer inspection of the party. This might have been satisfactory from his point of view, but the leaders of municipal life are more used to admira- tion from a distance. At any rate, the mayor led his aldermen and councillors in a race to a prosaic stable; and while four or five of the corporate heads were squeezing past cart wheels a-nof crushing behind the door, "Lrttle Willie" was re- captured. The mayor and corporation then adjourned for tea. Ott the whole, better delights. if less exciting, are to be obtained at the seaside and va the Continent. British members of Plaa-fiament might find the wheels of life running in smoother places if they cotild enjoy some of the little luxuries that sweeten exist- ence in other parte of the world. In the Australian Parliaments, for in-stance, when all-night sittings weire frequent, it was hospitable practice for the Govern- ment to pay few suppers and cabs for all members, irrespective of party. How- ever, the protracted series of midnight gatherings in the Commonwealth Farlia- ment, organised by the Labour party with a view to forcing a diaeokrtion, have caused a breach of suspension of this custom. This stoppage of free suppers and ca bs waa referred to by Mr. Fisher, the late Labour Printer USaister, as "a contemptible incident." But it. wasf justified by the WMp of the D?tkm Government on the ground t] ??t '-the Labour members had abandoned aoll the ordinary courtesies of Parliamentary warfare." All the same, this is no reason why something of the same kind should not be attempted by our representatives at Westminster, and improvements could be effected. It would not be a bad idea for the Local Government Board to confiscate a few workhouse billiard tables, and Poor-law guardians might -method, < submit to a surcharge. Of course, it ,N-ould have its disadvantages. Members aright feel disinclined to desert an inte- resting game of Snooker pool to obey the Division bell. Like Drake and his game of bowls, they would want to pot the last bail. There can be no doubt that the War Office does not do all within its power to make the Territorial Army scheme as .successful as it might be. There are too many derelict riflo ranges about, and money could be extracted from the authorities in a way that resembles less an attempt to draw blood from a post. And there are those who hold that Mr. Haldane would approach more nearly the \"hole duty of man if he advertised the attractions of the Territorial Army more energetically. He would have little need to do more than adopt and modify the methods that have been tried already with more or less success. In France, before the Re-volution, for instance, it was advertised that soldiers in a certain regiment danced three times a week, played rackets twice in the same period, and devoted the remainder of their time to skittfes, ancf fencing. The advertisement proceeded: "Pleasure prevails, and all the men are well paid. ihey have a chance of picking up good appointments in addition, and a hand- some reward will be paid to anyone intro- n i s was the reg i ducing a recruit." Tiss was the regi- nent (Regiment de la Fere) in which Napoleon held the commission of lieu- .enant. Possibly these attractions suggest too thoroughly tbe wholesale reduction of adipose tissue, and perhaps uhe gentle pastimes of marbles and diavolo might with advantage take the place of rackets .and baseball. However, (he idea is worth trying. Having got safely over the semi-final stile with Notts II., Glamorgan will meet vViltshire next w?ek, commencing Mon- day, to decide the championship of the second-class counties. The meeting is iraught with more than is apparent on the face of it. If Glamorgan wins, it will be left with the executive to take steps to obtain recognition in the higher circles, and to arrange fixtures with other first- class counties. There is no doubt that South Wales can well support first-class j Ticket. The district can boast of a much larger population than places like Derby, Leicester, and Northampton, and, what is more, the people are of a superior sporting quality than is the case in several parts of England where the game thrives. Those who never think of moving far to look at second-class games would come down from the hills and from all points of the.compass to witness better and more serious cricket. fhere would be more ambition among players to get in the county eleven, and l an improvement in actual play in the, best company w-ould soon be forthcoming. It is to be hoped that the Wiltshire game will be blessed with better weather con- ditions, and that each side will be able LO gy twice to the wicket. Captain ■jibson's first duty is to win the toss.- and then tor good scores, cheap wickets, and a handsome victory. If the game runs into the third day, it will be found that by the time the Second Class Counties' Championship is decided we shall be right into the foot- ball season. The kicking codes com- mence so early and lag so long on the stage that it is invariably the experience that the two seasons merge into each other. One of the most important indi- cations of the near approach of football was the annual meeting of the Cardiff club last night, when J. L. Williams was elected captain for the season. One can- not wish for a more popular leader than Percy Bush, whose heady play has often had much to do in settling matches, I as well as his wonderful "drops" at goal. But Percy has had the honour several times, and there is much to be said for sending the compliments round. And, as J. L. Williams is just as popular as the champion half- back and one of the very best wingers who ever donned jersey and boots, it is a pleasure to congratulate this clever player on the distinction which has overtaken him. He may rely on the loyalty of his colleagues to make the coming season one of the most successful m the history of the club; and <1& for efarless, dashing, speedy Reggie Gibbs, has time will come if he will only contrive to iteer clear of those little accidental which have hitherto been the f n<ly, of his enthusiastic impetuosity, j CardtfFs ranks contain a distinguished group of men who are all capable cap- tains, but, as only one peg can fill the hole, let us all take off our caps to •'J.

Wild Peers of Backwoods I MR. LLOYD CEORCE ON THE BUDGET Mr. Lloyd George considers that the Budget will have passed through the House of Commons by a-bout the first week in October. In the course of an interview with the Lobby correspondent of the "Daily Telegraph the Chancellor said :—" You must have a Budget passed before the end of the financial year-that is, March 31 next—and I venture to say that that Budget will be mine." I think you have disclosed the whole of your policy with regard to the land-taxes.7 Yes, practically. There are amendments with regard to minerals and other things which I must put down, but they are entirely in redemption of promises which were made from time to time in the course of debate." England, of course, has her national games. Do the public Quite understand what the position is with regard to cricket grounds? They are free from undeveloped land ?duty. but not from increment duty. ihe people ?ntere?ted in these grounds are press- ing to be free from increment duty also. We promised to exempt grounds which are open I for the purpose of these-games. I think it is desirable-most desirable—that the national games should be encouraged, and I for one should be exceedingly sorry to impose taxa- tion which would hamper or close grounds which are for the recreation of the public. I think they are put to the very best possible use that you can put land to, either in towns or outside towns." Are football grounds in the same posi- tion? "They are on the same footing." "And are golf links exempt?" "That depends. By our amendments, golf links are exempt as undeveloped land, if they conform to our conditions. They are in exactly the same category as any other recreation grouiicl," When do you think that the Budget will b, through the House of Commons?" "I think the Opposition can tell you that much better than I can. It depends upon them entirely, but I think the Bill will be through by the first or second week of October." What do you think lÜ.'use of Lords will do?" I have no notio.). I am not sure that anyone else has any idea. I suppose it depend upon the backwoodsmen—the wild peers who take no actual part in the work of Parliament, and only come when anything is brought forward which especially affects their interests." i Money for Development Bill Is there anytuing you would like to say respecting the Development Bill?" "I should like to say that, whatever may be thought of the Budget Bill, the Develop- ment Bill should certainly be treated as non. controversial. Both parties expressed them- selves gratified with the general character of the proposals which I outlined iu my Budget ipee-ch with reference to the econo- mic development of the United Kingdom. Therefore, I do not anticipate much difficulty in adding that Bill to tiie statute-book, what- ever may happen to the Budget." But how will you obtain the fund.3 for carrying cut the proposals of the Develop- ment Bill unies-; the Budget goes through?" "There will be no fnnds, and, therefore, it is of the first importance that the Budget Bill should get throug-li also. For instance, my scheme for the improvement of the main roads of the country depends entirely upon the Treasury getting this year the money this -ear the mciev which we propose to raise by taxing motors and petrol." And as to the other pa.rt of the Bill?" I snail have no funds for the purpose of encouraging agriculture unless the Budget goes through. So you see how the matter alandc." Lord Rosebery and Anti-Budget Meeting. A Glasgow telegram states that provisional arrangements are authoritatively stated to be going forward for Lord Rosebery's anti- Budget meeting. It would appear that his lordship was approached on th.e subject, and favourably entertained the suggeetion to speak. A numerously-signed requisition is now ooin.g prepared for presentation toO his lordahip. An importam t step was taken on Friday night by the Glasgow promoters of the meet- ing which it is hoped will be addressed by Lord Rosebery in opposition to the finance olauses of the Budget, A requisi tion was circulated among the bueinese men of the City for signatures requesting the ex-Premie- to visit Glasgow and express the views held I by the originators of the movement. The requisition, which secured as signatories many we-ll-known citizens, is in the follow- ing termis:- [ To the Right Hon. the Earl of Rosebery. My Lord.-We. the undeirsigned, engag' ed in business in Glasgow, being unable to approve of many of the proposals container in the Budget now under discussion in the House of Commons, respectfully request, your lordship to address a meeting of busi- ness men in the city on the swbjecfc a.t an early date. It is admitted by the promoters that Lord Rosebery has given a provisional consent to speak in Glasgow, the condition being that he receives a requisition to do so. Arrange- ments are being hurried on, and the inten- tion is to have an afternoon meeting of a non-party nature for business men only within a fortnight or three weeks. Mr. Runciman's Wapntng to the I Trade. 14r. R-dneiman, speaking at Rhyl on Friday nifht, urged that the Budget was a fair one, and that where the pain fell there was the best solace to heal it. The Government had really been too moderate in its demands, and the trade would find it better to accept the offer made. He urged that it was fairer to tax the luxuries of life. and next year they would go on improving the present Budget proposals. It was not a Socialistic Budget, but gave the State control of the land. The Government would now go on to social legislation for aU classes. Reprimand for the Chancellor Speaking at Stroud on Friday, Mr. Chaplin dealt with the Chancellor of the Exchequer's action in pasaiBg the new Developmeait Bill to the press before members of Parliament, and stated that he trusted the Speaker's reprimand would have the effect of putting an end to this intolerable abruse of privilege which had grown up of late among Ministers of State. He described the Budget as Socialistic in principle, and whilst, it was unjust in its levying of taxes it made no adequate provision for the defence of the nation, annj did not deal with the grave evil of unemployment, which could only be remedied by a revision of the fiscal system.
BENCH DISAGREE. I Leo Bhish, Gaetie-street, Aberavon, and Joseph, Pollock, 25. King-street, Canton, Cardiff, surrendered to their bail at Port laloot on Friday charged with stealing a quantity of pictures and picture frames value £13, the property of the Atlas Fine Art Compa,ny of America, by whom defendants had been employed as canvassers at Port Talbot and elsewhere. The court-room ptre- eented the apipearanoe of a picture shop with the numerous pictures and frames exhibited. Mr. Lewis M. Thomas appeared for defen- dants. Samuel Barnett, Cardiff, temporarily reading at Eagle-street, Port Talbot, said he was a picture-frame deaJer, and eoMcited orders for enlargements of photos. Both prisoners were in his employ for about four months. Prisoners were employed to canvass or-dara and deliver goods. Mr. Lie wis M Thomas: You trade as a com- pany?—Yes, as the Atlas Fine Art Company. Mr. Thomas: Is there anyone else in the company?—No one but myself. Mr. Thomas: Then it is a one man com- pa.n:y?- Yes. Mr. Thomas, for prisoners, submitted that no prima facie oaee had been made out, and that prisoners were partners with prosecutor. After a retirement. Mr. II. A. Burgees intimated that the bench were unable to come to a decision, and the case would have to be tried before amother rota of magistrates later in the day. After being re-tried in the evening, the case was dismissed.

I Land Purchase in Ireland I CLOSE OF COMMITTEE STAGE, The House of Commons again went into Committee on the Irish Land Bill on Friday, this being the last allotted day, when the Committee stage was to be concluded. On Clause 61, which proposes to give "pre- sent tenants" who were converted into future tenants since the 1st of January, 1879. the right to get a fair rent fixed for their holdings, Mr. MAURICE HEALY (N., Cork) contended that in its present form the clause would exclude leaseholders whose leases were deter- mined between 1831 and 1887, and moved the insertion of words to include them. Mr. CHERRY (Attorney-General for Ireland) "aid the point raised had been fully con- sidered, and the amendment was entirely unnecessary. The amendment was withdrawn. On the motion that the clause stand part of the Bill, Mr. CAMPBELL (U., Dublin University) pointed out that the future" tenant, although he could not get a, fair rent fixed, had many advantages over a tenant in England or Scotland. He could purchase his holding under any of the Land Acts; he coald sell his tenancy to the highest bidder, and he had practically security of tenure. Why, he asked, was not this clause confined to the case of persons who had lost their "present" tenancies owing to non-payment of rent. Mr. DILLON (N., Mayo, E.) supported the clause. Mr. WINDHAM (U.. Dover) was opposed to the clause because it was run in competition with land purchase. He would not vote 1 against it, however, if the Government would make it clear that a man who had knowingly bought a "future" tenancy should not be. able to apply to the Land Court to fix his rent, and, secondly, that a man who had lost his" present" tenancy for reasons other than non-payment of rent should not be allowed the possibility of litigation. Mr. CHEERY, while declining to give any pledge whatever, promised that suggestions made as to limiting or extending the effect of the clause should be fully considered. The clause was agreed to without a division. Clauses 62. 63, 64, and 65, which a purely forma 1. were passed without opposition PUBLIC TRUSTEE AND INVESTMENTS. Mr. BIRRELL (Irish Secretary) moved a new clause providing for a relaxation lof the con- trol of the Public Trustee over investments authorised under the Act of 1903, except as regards investments in railway stocks. Mr. WYNE'HAIvT pointed out that, while the Chief Secretary thought it still necessary to preserve the sanction of the Public Trustee for investments in railway debentures, he proposed to exempt ground rents, but who would be prepared to say that if the present policy of the Government Were carried out ground rents would be a safer investment ten years hence than railway debentures? (Opposition cheers.) After some discussion. Mr. BIRRELL with- drew the clause, promising to consider the whole matter before the Report stage, and then to substitute a new clause. Mr. BIRRELL moved a new clause modify- ing Clauses 6 and 8 of the Act of 1903 by empowering- the Estates Commissioners to originate proceedings for the purchase by them of estates or untenanted land not situate within a district coming under the jurisdiction of the Congested Districts Board. Mr. WYNDHAM said he was bound to oppose the clause, which was the initial stage in the compulsory proceedings which the Bill involved. On a division the clause was carried by 160 to 28. The guillotine then came into operation. %nd a new clause giving power to the Con- gested Districts Board to inspect land with a view to purchase was agreed to without a division. A new schedule providing for a revised sliding-scale of bonus was carried on a division by 160 to 27. This completed the Committee stage, and the Bill as amended was reported to the House.
DOWNING STREET INCIDENT I Batch of Suffragettes in Court The adjourned police-court proceedings against the eight suffragettes who were arrested on Thursday week in connection with the picketing of tthe residence of the Premier in Downing-street created unusual interest at Bow-street on Friday. The defendants before the court were:— Edith Cranstoun, Irene Tillard, Charlotte Deopard, Anne Cobden Sanderson, Lilian Martha Hicks, Lillie Boileau, Marian C. Carrington Hyde, and Janet Legate Butler, and they were charged before Mr. Curtis Bennett with obstructing the police in the execution of their duty. Mr. T. M. Healy, K.C., M.P., appeared with Mr. D. Owen Evans for the defendants, and Mr. Gervoise Rentoul for the Women's Freedom League. Superintendent WeIlt5 said that on the after- noon of Thursday week he went to Downing- street, in company with Inspector Jarvis, and there saw the defendants Cranstoun and Til- lard standing near No. 10. He asked the defen- dants if they were pickets for the Women's Freedom League, and upon being answered in the affirmative he to-Id then they would have to go away. One of them said, It was legal to stand there yesterday, why not to- day?" Witness replied, "It was illegal yes- terday and is illegal tc-d>ay' and you migat please go away. Unless yDU do so, I shall have to arrest you." The two defendants said they would not go away unless they were arrested. They refused to go away, and they were taken into custody. Mr. Healy raised the question as to whether the defendants, who had no intention of obstructing the police, could be held respon- sible for any obstruction that oocurred. He contended that they did not go there to obstruct, and that, therefore, the intention was material. Mr. Curtis Bennett said that intention had certainly something to do with the matter. "These ladies got to Downing-efcreet day by day, they are warned by the police that they are creating an obstruction, and, therefore, if they insist, it is intentional obstruction." After evidence as to other arrests, Super- intendent Wells was cross-examined by Mr. Healy. He could not say whether they would be allowed to stand if they declared they were there to serve a writ upon the Prime Minister. The police had the right to prevent the Prime Minister being molested. The defendants had no document entitling them to stay. Other evidence of arrest was given, and it was stated that at one time there was a cordon of police across the end of Downing- street. A constable described the incident of the cardboard box. As the Prime Minister drove up in a cab, he stated, Miss Boileau said, ".Nlr. Asquith, Mr. Asquith, we have been waiting six weeks. Take this." She raised her arm in the act of throwing the case, which was dropped, and it rolled into the gutter. Witness had secured the lady, but released her on the instructions of the in- spector. MR. HEALY AND CRINOLINES. I For the defence Mr. Healy said that even in more aucient days the right of the dis- franchised subject to voice his grievaneee or complaints was firmly established. What, was now contested was the right of policemen to come between the subject and Sovereign's chief officers, and he claimed they had no such .power. Counsel assured the magistrate that the ladies were not waiting iu Downing-street for the Prime Minister to take tea with them. They did not want him to pass judgment on the shape of their crinoline. He admitted that Mr. Asquith had been inconvenienced, but if the police ca*9e was right then Mr. AsquiJh should repeal the Bill of Rights, and say that nothing in petticoats should approach within a hundred yards of Downing-street. Mr. HeoaJY said that if the magistrate ruled against him he would ask him to state a case, so that the King's Bench Division should be able to say whether the rights of millions of English subjects should be swept aside by a casual and epthemeral Prime Minister. The magistrate adjouirned has decision for a week.
LADY SWIMMER SAVED. I An exciting scene was witnessed at Fal- mouth Bathing Beach on Friday.

I The Record Flight i I M. LATHAM RELATES HIS IMPRESSIONS PARIS, 'Friday. Describing his sensations during his record-breaking' flight yesterday, M. Latham says that he was not greatly astonished at his success, having absolute confidence in the stability and regularity in working his monoplane. It was true that M. Paulham's record was a difficult one to beat, and a strong wind that was blowing at first caused him some r isgivingg. The rain that lashed his machine prevented him from seeing the signposts, and this involved an appreciable loss of time. The motor, happily, worked marvellously, and the monoplane, though drenched with rain, was not in the least affected, flying straight and without the slightest fl uctua- tion. He then felt quite re-assured. A little later the weather cleared, and the wind moderated, and on passing the gand-stands at the moment when M. Paulham's record had been beaten, he could see handkerchiefs waving, and hear the "bravos" of the spec- tators, which afforded him a joy impossible to describe. From that instant his monoplane seemed to share his exultation and to participate I in his triumph. It appeared t? Sy of its own accord, and so fixed was this idea in his mind that, without apprehension, he let go the stearins-gear, and put on his spectacles, which he had forgotten to do before start- ing. It was only the fact that his petrol ran out which forced him to descend, but he kept going as long as a drop remained. It was the most curious impression to find himself down on a level with the dust again, after soaring so long at lofty altitudes with the speed of an express train. The distance flown was equivalent to a flight Irom Rheims to Paris.—Press Association Foreign Special. Yesterday's Flights BETHENY, Friday. This morning the weather was hazy and sultry and the sky overcast, the wind blow- ing at th-3 rate of two to three metres a second. The red flag, was hoisted, and the aviators busied themselves in their sheds to get ready for the eitart, for which the con- ditions were favourable. M. Brequet brought his machine, but did not ascend. M. Bleriot flew twice round the course, and then camo to earth in front of his shed, where his monoplane which was broken yesterday was being repaired. At eight o'clock M. Sommer made a flight lasting 45 minutes. To-day the final of the Grand Prix de Campasne and the sixth day of the lap competition were entered upon at t"n o'clock, M. Paulhan taking wit.h him 97 litres of with hira 97 litreg of petrol with a view to beating the worLd's record for the distance now held by M. Latham. The start was difficult. He managed to turn at the first pylo.n at a height of twenty metres, but eamo to earth at the second. At 10.50 M. Banau Varilla ascended, out did not remain long in the air. M. Brequet then flew a distance of 300 metres. 7 p.m. M. Paulhan was the victim of an unfor- tunate accident at mid-day to-day. Though he, himself was uninjured, hifi biplane was badly damaged, and his hopes of winning the Prix de Campagne are small. While rising near his shed he was caught in a sudden gust of wind, and the aeroplane was dashed violently to the ground. The propeller and left wing were smashed, and the body bent. M. Paulhan was much down- cast at. the misadventure, as he was hoping to beat M. Latham's record in the Grand Prix. The necessary repairs cannot be carried out before to-morrow. 8 p.m. Fa rman has beaten all records for the dis- tance by covering 100 kilometres (111.85 miles) in 3hrs. 4min. 56 2-5s3c. 8.30 p.m. Explaining his accident in an interview, M. Paulhan said he had just started, when he saw M. Delegrange coming tow aro s him Fearing the latter was not high enough to pass over him, M. Paulhan moved his lever in order to drop, when he was caught by the wind. Even then he said he could have regained his equilibrium, but the current caused by M. De leg range's aeroplane finished matters M. Delegrange is naturally much upset at the accident. The position of competitors for the 'Grand Prix de Campagne is now as follows: — 1st. M. Farm an, 180 kilometres. 2nd, M. Latham, 154 kilometres. 3rd. M. Paulhan, 131 kilometres. 4th, M, Tiss&ndier, 120 kilometres. 5th, Comte de Lambert, 116 kilometres, —Renter. New World's Record I BETHENY. Friday Night- Wonderful though the flight performed ley M. Hubert Latham yesterday was it was sur- passed this evening by M. Henri Farman, who with his biplane covered a distance of 180 kilometres in 3h. 4min. 56sec, thus winning the Grand Prix de la Campagne for the greatest distance covered without renewal of fuel. Continuing his flight M. Farman did not descend until he had travelled 180 kilometres (nearly 120 miles), thus establishing a new world's record.—Central News. BETHENY, Friday. M. Farman, who to-day covered 180 kilos (112 miles), should, according to rules, be the winner of the first prize ( £ 2,000), M. Latham, with 154 kilometres, winning the second prize ( £ 1,000), and M. Paulhan, with 131 kilometres, the third ( £ 800). After the accident to M. Paulhan's machine, however, M. Delegrange, who considered he was solely to blame for the mishap, and that he had thus deprived M. Paulhan of his last chance of regaining first place, asked the committee for an extension of time for this competition till to-morrow. The decision of, the confmittee has not yet been announced. Besides the prizes mentioned above, there are fourth, fifth, and sixth prizes of L200 each. The Gordon-Bennett Cup, which will be com- peted for to-morrow, goes to the aviator who flies twenty kilometres in the shortest time. The prize is £ 1,000 and a trophy worth £ 500. The following have qualified to enter:-M. Coekburft (England), MM. Lefeibrvre, Bleriot] aJ;d Latham (Fvance), and Mr. Ourtise (U.S.A ).—Renter.
RUSSIAN GIRL BRIDE. I At a meeting of the Alien Immigration Board on Friday a Russian girl, only four- teen years old, applied for admission. The Chief Immigration Officer stated that the man in whose care the girl had journeyed from Bremen told him that he was taking her to a sister, whose name and address he did not know. When the official called on the man's wife he learnt that her husband had written to say that he was bringing a girl over for hi,s son, a barber, to marry. The son, when visited, stated that he knew that his father had selected a bride for him, and he was willing to wed her. although he had not the faintest idea who she was, as he had never seen her. Inquiries resulted in the girl's married sister being located, and when asked if she had heard of the projected matrimonial match she replied: "He (the man) may have said so, but I know better." The sister promised to look after the girl, and she was allowed to land.

FLABBERGASTED Story of a Police Raid INSURANCE SECRETARY CHARGED rf Improper House at St. John's Wood ? Further sensational evidence was given in London on Friday at the resumed prosecu- tion against Mr. Percy Baldwin Smith, assis- tant-secretary of the Law, Car, and General Insurance Corporation (Limited), for the alleged improper management of his residence at St. John's Wood. a highly-respectable resi- dential district. His Italian man servant, Andre Cartellini, was charged with assisting in the management of the house. Defendant entered into occupation on July 16, and almost immediately afterwards complaints were made about the conduct of the place. • The police evidence was to the effect that when observation was kept on the house during the last week of July, between the hours of seven p.m. and two a.m., twenty-two couples were seen to enter and fifteen to leave. Of these two were admitted by Mr. Smith, ten by Cartellini, four admitted them- selves, and the remaining six were let in By someone who could not be seen. In cross-examination, Mr. Smith said the only people who entered his house during that period were himself, his wife, mother, father-in-law, two sisters-in-law (aged 13 and 15), his brother-in-law, and the parlourmaid. Since the case commenced, continued defen- dant, a gentleman upon whose complaint watch was set on the house, had pressed himself upon him (defendant), and now de- sired to give evidence for the defence. Mr. Farmer (for the prosecution): Do you suggest that the whole of the evidence is a concoction?—It is absolutely false. Then you say he has committed perjury?— Yes. My own relatives have been mistaken. The police went to the house expecting that it was full of people, and they were so flabbergasted at what they ti.und that one and all became excited and made mistakes. Prior to going to this house, added defen- dant, he resided in a flat with his wife and mother. His mother's name was Mrs. Fawten. But that is your father-in-law's name," explained counsel with astonishment. "Then is she his wife?"—-That is so. Then yon have married Fa.wten's daughter and Fawten has married your mother?—That is so. And you have married your stepsister ?— Yes. Mr. Smith said his mother was married to Mr. Fawten tweLve years ago in Australia. The Magistrate remarked that it was very strange that hie mother should be living at his house when her own home with Mr. Fawten was only three minutes' walk away. Asked if his father was dead, defendant- replied that he was alive and was in Aus- tralia. "That makes the marriage story still more complicated," observed Mr. Farmer. "Thn are your father and mother divorced?"—I understand so. To this, however, Mr1. Smith would not swear, nor to the marriage between his mother and Fawten. Cortellini, following, denied all the alle- gations made against him, and asked why he did not deny them when charged. retorted, Because I had been taught in Italy always to admit what the police say, and always be kind and respectful." Couns.el: Did Mr. Smith ever have any visitors other than the members of the family and those you have named?—No. What is the latest time you have ever let anyone in the house?—The latest, time was when I let the police in the house. (Laughter.) The case was adjourned.
STRUGGLE ON THE LINE. I John Powell, collier, Maesycwmmer, was summoned at Blackwood on Friday for assaulting David Gwillym, an employe of the Brecon and Merthyr Railway Company, on Aug-ust 21. Mr. Lyndon Cooper, Newport, proseouted, and Mr. A. E. S. Thomas, Pen- gam, defended. Prosecutor stated that defendant was trespassing on the line, 'and as a man was killed at that. spot about twelve months ago by a train he warned him off the line. Defendant refused to go and struck him a violent blow on the head with a water jack, which he was carrying, inflicting a nasty wound. A. scuffle ensued on the six-foot way, and prosecutor got de- fenda.nt off the line shortly before a train came up. Defendant stated that he had per- mission to walk up the railway to fetch drinking water, and complainant ordered him to go back. He took no notice of him, but walked on up the line, and complainant followed him, oaught hold of him by the collar, and struck him several blows on the head with his fist. A scuffle followed, and in order to free himself from Gwillym he I struck him on the head with the waterjack. The bench dismissed the case.

WORKING CLASS HOUSES. Whell the Housing and Town Planning Bill comes before the House of Commons on Mon- day the most controversial subject of discus- sion will be Clause 30, which provides for a quinquennial survey by the local authorities of all working class houses. This clause was inserted in Standing Committee against the wish of the Government, and it is strongly opposed by the Association of Municipal Cor- porations on the score of the expense involved. On the other hand, many members specially interested in the housing question rëgard it as the most valuable provision of the Bill, and are unlikely to acquiesce silently in its abandonment. lunder the guillotine resolution the clause should come on. soon after seven o'clock, when there wilt be ample opportunity for debate.
