Cardiff Rope Works, Penarth-road, Grangetown, Cardiff, Jan. 8, 1885. Dear Sir,—For this last 2S years I have been a great sufferer from the above-mentioned com- plaints, and I wish to express my greatest satisfac- tion, and to testify to the benefit that I have derived from your -Magnetaire" appliances which I purchased from you some weeks back, and I must say that since I have had the pleasure of wearing it I have not been troubled with myoId and inconvenient complaints. I can eat and digest my food with comfort, and as regards my strength it is about double. You are at liberty to make this statement public for the benefit of others who may be similarly afflicted.—Respectfully your-, Mr R. Lonsdale. SAMUEL WAUGfl. IMPORTANT TESTIMONY BRONCHITIS AND HEART DISEASE. 28, Windsor-road, Cardiff, Dec. 17, 188-1. Dear Sir,—For many years I have been suffering from Lronchitis and Heart Disease, and although I have consulted with several physicians, and tried many remedies, I have received very little benefit from them. I few weeks ago I bought one of your "Magnetaire" appliances, and ain glad to tell you that I have derived much benetit from it.-I a.,ii, yours respectfully, JOHN EVANS. Mr R. Lonsdale. INDIGESTION. 39, Croft-street, Baath. Cardiff. Dec. 18, 1884. Dear Sir,—A short time ago I purchased from you an appliance fur Indigestion and pain in the back I am very pleased to inform you that I have derived great benefit from it. Can now eat any- thing I fancy, and am quite free from the pain and inconvenience I felt before purchasing the Mag. netaire."—Yours truly, Mrs C. WARREN. ° Mr R. Lonsdale. IESTDIONIAL FROM THE REV. R. H. DIGNUM. Neville Cottage, Pearl-street, Roath, Cardiff, November 24, 1834. My Dear Sir,—For the thir, I time I have great pleasure in bearing testimony to the continued benefit I receive from wearing your admirable Magnetaire Belt. To me its effects are simply comforting and delightful. I can eat and digest my food with comfort. That terrible nervous action with which I was troubled for years has been sub- dued. For months together I have been free from it. I also find the Magnetaire" Soles a perfect luxury. The appliances are a blessing indeed to me for the last two years. I wish you success in your efforts to benefit suffering humanity. I shall be glad to answer any questions which anyone may desire toasitme upon the matter. With gratitude for the good I have myself received, with very kind regards, I remain, Dear .Mr Lonsda'e, yours most faithfully, ROBT. HAYDON DIGNUM. To Mr Lonsdale. WEAK LEGS, NUMB FEET, SWOLLEN ANKLE, AND WEAKNESS OF THE VOICE. 214, Pearl-street, Roath, Nov. 17th, 1884. Dear Sir,—Some years ago I had an attack of eholera, which left a thorough weakness in my legs, numbness in feet, and swollen ankle, causing pain and greatly inconveniencing me in getting about. I am pleased to ted you that after wearing the Belt and Soles I purchased of you during your last visit a few hours I began to feel an improve- ment, and afcer a week's trial the change was won- derful my legs were altogether stronger, the swell- ing of ankle had gone down, feet free from numb- ness, and the circulation restored through my body. I found a great improvement also in my voice, which was very weak; can now speak stronger, although it is ten years since my voice broke down. I am highly satisfied with what your Appliances have done, and shall always recommend them with confidence in any similar case.—Yours truly JOHN TAYLOR Builder. Mr R' Lonsdale. CRAMP AND RHEUMATISM. 157. Bute-road. Cardiff, Nov. 1 1884. ir.-ln answer to your inquiry about the Magnetaire that I purchased of you during your last visit to Cardiff, I am glad to say it has doneme great good, especially in removingRheumatismaml Cramp, and soothing the several complaints that come with age. I also have known several who have worn the Magnetaire," and in every case it has relieved or cured them. If a rich person or two were to club a few stray sovereigns together and purchase some of your appliances, and give them to the poor and nee >y, who cannot buy such earthly blessings, they could say hereafter, "They weresick, and I visited them."

AT the present time Clothing so much de- notes the position of the wearer that to be iJ1 clad or clothed in garments that are badly made and fitted at once conveys an im- pression unfavourable to the wearer. It is, therefore, of great importance that all who study appearance should be careful to make their purchases only from such houses as make Style, Fit, and Quality, combined with economy, their leading features. Winter especially requires that change in our attire which is so necessary for the due protection of our health and comfort. It is, therefore, of great importance that we should be supplied with overcoats and other warm clothing, not only at a moderate charge, but also fashion- able and well made, as well as being selected from materials of modern design and durable character. To these important requisites MASTERS and COMPANY have especially devoted their attention, and the reader may depend upon being supplied with all he re- quires at either of their establishments. Every person to whom economy is an object should certainly inspect their stock before purchasing elsewhere. The position occupied by this firm in the markets as the largest buyers of clothing m Wales or the West of England enables them fre- quently to secure goods at such prices as defy competition, it being an indisputable fact that the tradesman who can buy largest must buy on more favourable terms than the smaller buyer. There can be no surer indi- cation than an increased trade that the public duly appreciate fair dealing, and that the efforts of MASTERS and COMPANY to supply goods of sterling value at the lowest remunerative profit have been fully recognised is proved by the result. 102e
South Wales Notes. THE Cardiff cabs are wonderful pieces of mechanical rickeuneaa, and considering their average condition, the manner in which some of them refuse to fall to pieces is simply mar- vellous. I was not surprised to hear the Corporation, yesterday, making somewhat merry over the subject. But for those who have to ride in these spring conveyances as one councillor called them—the matter becomes a sorry jest. To be driven along in the constant fear that one is about to part company with some portion of the vehicle is trying in the extreme. The wonder is that they ever pass the in- spection, which, I am afraid, can hardly argue much for the keen-siglitedness of those who make it. It is, indeed, nothing short of the fact that the Cardiff cabs are, as a rule, a disgrace to the town. AT the same time, the work of the Cabs Committee may sometimes be puzzling, while it must be confessed that in some respects the result of it seems to out- siders to be equally Starting from a confessed inability to please everybody, they end, not infrequently, in pleasing nobody. The constant increase in the number of stands is one source of com- plaint, but a Cardiff cabman suggested to me what I would call a natural reason for this-so many cabstands are wanted because neither the cab horses nor cabs are able to travel any great distance. MR COUNCILLOR CAREY did a graceful act in proposing a vote of thanks to Mr Councillor Sanders for his work in connection with the redistribution scheme. Coming from a political opponent the compliment is more emphasized, although, for one, I am quite prepared to say that it could not be more deserved. What was done was for the real benefit of Cardiff, and there is no one who has seen the work who could fail to recognise the value of the services so ren- dered. No one felt more pleased at Swansea's suc- cess in obtaining at the hands of the Government a second member than I, and I am sure you also joined in congratulating Swansea, for I remember it was through your instrumentality that the people of Swansea first heard the good tidings. But there is one thing in connection with the addition of a member to Swansea which has been generally overlooked. According to the plan of division adopted by the general purposes committee of the Swansea Town Council (and even according to the scheme approved of by the inhabitants of Neath and Aberavon), one division of the bnrough will be Swansea proper, and the other the outlying districts of Morriston, Neath, Aberavon, &c. The idea has been to call one division Swansea West and the other Swansea East. Now, last Friday the Boundary Commissioner, while sitting at Bridgend, distinctly stated that the commissioners had been directed to name every division from some town or locality, and therefore it was of no use to press upon him the desirability of adopting such names as western' or eastern,' or anything of that kind." Thus it will be seen that such an idea a3 that entertained by the Swansea Corporation is out of the question. I point this out that steps may be at once taken to maintain the import- ance of Swansea, for should the Morriston or Neath people press for their division being named, from some town or locality," and the eastern division should thus be called Neath or Morriston, Swansea wil suffer, for instead of being a parliamentary borough of 104,000 inhabitants, it will, by losing the eastern division, be a parlia- mentary borough of only 50,000. THE shipping trade between Swansea and America is being very rapidly developed, and however much our Liverpool friends may ridicule the idea of Swansea being made the point of departure for mail steamships between England and America, experience has shewn that the claims of Swansea are not so slight as was some time ago believed. It has been proved beyond dispute that a letter sent from London via Swansea to America can reach its destina- tion several hours earlier than one sent via Liverpool. Alderman Yeo, yesterday, gave a still more forcible illustration of what Swansea can do when she tries. In 1883 Liverpool was the port of departure of nearly all steamers laden with tin-plates for America, while none were despatched from Swansea. During the past year, however, sixty steamers have left Swansea, carrying 107,000 tons of tin-plates and 20,000 tons of bunker coal, and the trade has been almost entirely taken from Liver- pool. Another statement I was glad to hear made at the meeting of the harbour trusteeil z, was that the tonnage of steamers trading with Swansea has increased during the year by 63,000. WH £ N will the Newport authorities acknowledge that the post-offlce is too small for the town ? I mean practically acknowledge it, by having a building erected that is large enough for th3 needs of the town. Ground they have, plans they have, architects they have, and builders they could easily find. What is it they lack ? I will not say what first occurs to me. I know what the officials have—too much work and what the public have—too little convenience. Five- and-twenty people, all crowding at the same desk and at the same time, may be a capital sight for any man who has no need to make one of them, and is not in a hurry to catch a post. An amiable cynic might perhaps find such a sight a subject for congenial medita- tion as a modern illustration of the "Vanity of Human Wishes;" but when one wants to buy stamps, the process is somewhat exas- perating. Speaking seriously where is the need for so long a delay in the erection of the proposed new building IT is one thing to be short of money, and quite another to try and get it from people who don't owe it. The Newport guardians have not, or had not up to Saturday, mas- tered what is really quite an elementary financial proposition. They felt a tempo- rary pressure, and sent out summonses in a perfectly lavish manner to the various over- seers. As these gentlemen had, with only one exception, paid the amounts some time previously, and were able to produce at the court bankers' receipts for them, the guardians were placed in a rather ridiculous j, position. Who was the originator of this ingenious, if rather embarassing, piece of financial policy, was not made quite clear but it seemed to have been the result of collaobration among two or more of the offi- cials. Perhaps it would be as well, on a future occasion when any such official plea- santries are intended, that some impartial person who knows the law and will inves- tigate the facts should be consulted. The frequent occurrence of such cases might grow wearisome.
EDITORIAL NOTES. THE evidence given at an inquest held at Carmarthen yesterday illustrates the extreme danger attendant upon the administering of deleterious drugs to children. Paregoric, soothing syrups, sleeping powders, and so called cough mixtures usually contain drugs which are of a highly poisonous nature if given in too large quantities. The inquest I z, referred to was on the body of a child only six months old. The child had been suffer- ing from a cold and cough, and its father states that he went to a local chemist, and giving the age of the child and other particu- lars, obtained a bottle of mixture. This mixture contained laudanum in the pro- portion of one part in 30. The father says the chemist directed him to give the child five or six drops three times a day; whilst the chemist states that if he had known the age of the child he would not have recommended that mixture, for it was not generally given to children of that q age. We believe there is always some danger attendant upon supplying medicine of an anaesthetic character for very young children for the mother finding that the medicine soothes it off to sleep, is in many instances too apt to quieten the child by giving it more of the medicine than she ought. The coroner recommended the chemist not to cell such strong medicine for children so young, remarking that it was improper to give laudanum at that age, and if lie continued to sell the mixture he should put a label on the bottle stating that it must not be given to children under a certain number of months old. This caution is very appropriate under the cir- cumstances but the coroner might have gone a step further, and recommended that the poison label be put on bottles when cough mixture, containing a dangerous pro- portion of laudanum, is sold. o
AT Ystrad police-court, on Monday, two cases were heard which show the dangers to which colliers are often exposed by the care- lessness or recklessness of their fellow-work- men. Two colliers named HODDER, father and son, were charged with unramming a shot which had missed fire at the eastern pit, Ocean Collieries; and two other collieries named MORGAN and RICH- ARDS, charged with being cognisant of the offence committed by the HODDERS, and not immediately reporting the fact to the authorities. The fines inflicted in both cases were the same, which certainly seems rather hard upon MORGAN and RICHARDS. It is well-known that the unramming of a missed shot is a dangerous operation, especially if there be any ga3 in the pit, and therefore. the punishment meted out to the HODDERS is by no means too severe. But in the other case, if MORGAN or RICHARDS, or both; had immediately gone to the manager, or under manager, and reported the breach of colliery rules, they would have been dubbed "tell-tales" by their comrades, and it was probably this mistaken sense of honour which kept them from divulging tho offence of their fellow- workmen. To fine them in a simi- lar penalty to that inflicted on the really guilty parties, is like hanging a man guilty of concealing the crime of a mur- derer and a lesser fine than that imposed upon the principal offenders might have met the circumstances of the case.
COUGH MIXTURE FOR CHILDREN The Carmarthen Coroner and the Chemist. The Carmarthen borough coroner, Mr J. Hughes, F.R.C.S., held an inquest on Mon- day afternoon on a child aged six months, named Stephen Henry Dent, son of Wm. Dent, a horse dealer, living on the Quay, Carmarthen. The child had been suffering from a cold and cough, and the father obtained a bottle of cough mixture from Mr J. P. Richards, chemist, Lammas-street, to whom he gave the age of the child and other particulars. Mr Richards directed that five or six drops of the mixture should be given to the child two or three times a day. —Mr Richards said he recollected seJliner the mixture to Dent, but did not remember he told the age of the child nor his directing that the dose should be five or six drops two or three times a day. He thought that if he had known the age oj the child he would not have recommended that mixture, for it was not generally given to children of that age-tugh a dose of five drops twice a day would not be too strong. There was laudanum in the mixture in the proportion of one part in 30. The jury returned a verdict of death from natural caues.The Coroner,addressing the witness Richards, recommended him not to sell such strong medicine for children so young. It was improper to give laudanum at that age, and if he continued to sell the mixture he should put a label on the bottles stating that it must not be given to children under a certain number of months old.
At Brighton on Monday, Frank Merrix, rate collector, pleaded guilty to embezzlement from the corporation, and received twelve months' hard labour.
LORD BUTE IN SCOTLAND. The Marquis of Bute has been prominently before the Scottish public during the past week. On Wednesday night last his lordship opened a handsome new town-hall at Cumnock, towards the cost of which he gave £ 500; on the following day (Thursday) he opened the College of St. Aloy- sius, Garnethill, an institution for the secondary education of Roman Catholic boys, and delivered an address on the results of the Protestant Refor- mation, which we have already published while on Thursday night he presided at the annual reunion of the natives of Bute in Glasgow. About 900 persons Were present. After tea thanks were returned by singing two verses of the 100th Psalm. Lord BUTE, who was decorated with the ribbon and star of the Order of the Thistle, on rising to address the assemblage was received with loud and prolonged cheers again and again renewed. His lordship said-Ladies and gentlemen—or rather I suppose I ought to say on this occasion, fellow countrymen—it gives me great pleasure to bid you welcome here this evening, not only be- cause I trust that you are assembled with a very pleasant evening before you, but because I hope we have in such a meeting an occasion for the preservation of old friendships and acquaintance- ships and the renewal of the memories of home. These memories can bring little but good, even when they are over- shadowed by the consciousness of things which have for ever passed away. (Hear, hear.) I believe a French writer has been known to ex- press thankfulness that his countrymen, placed between the northern and the southern nations of Europe, had escaped the heaviness of the one and the frivolity of the other. This summary disposal of the intelligence of Germany, the energy of Italy, and the gravity of Spain, is certainly not an example which I shall fallow by saying that we combine in Bute all the merits of both the Highlands and the Lowlands, but I may be forgiven for hoping that in our position, through which the Highland line runs with the main stream of the Ciyde, we partake of some of the advantages of both. (Applause.) It is to this peculiar position that I conceive we owe a good deal of our history, which is at least interesting and curious, and I suspect it has a good deal to do with the dignity of our separate political existence. Sodor is often regarded as a mysterious if not an impalpable comrade of Man. I fancy our claims to form at least the best part of Sodor are very respectable. And at oue of the ivitist interesting points in our history—I mean theiiine of the invasion which culminated in the battle of Largs-we find the Norwegian Government supporting one branch of the family of the local chiefs against the claims of the other, represented, through alliance, by the family of the High Stewards of Scotland, settled in these lowlands to which the islands still marked by the name of Cymric, as opposed to the Gaelic Celts, then, as now, belonged. (Applause.) The triumph of our national cause se- secured the triumph in our island of the direct line of the house of Stewarts. It was with a scion of that house that the men of our contingent gloriously remained at Falkirk. (Applause.) It was not, I conceive, without the feeling of family affection, although doubtless availing himself of past political history, that Robert II., exactly five hundred years ago, in 1385, created our county as such. (Applause.) I confess that when we lately heard the word redistribution' so often, some fears crossed my mind that the idea might be regarded as more or less of a royal fad, and hardly deserving at the present day as much recognition as 1 am sure every one here agrees with me that it deserves. Such ideas might even have been supported on the ground of the arrangements trom which we suffered after the Union, against which we pro- tested. However, as things stand at present, we are undisturbed, unless it be by the prospect of a struggle for the office of representing us. (Hear, hear.) In looking upon our own history, I think it must be acknowledged that, if we have shared in the misfortunes of Scotland, we have shared at least equally with other places in the measure of prosperity which it has in later times been given her to enjoy. Our local idiosyncrasy may indeed be said to be exposed to wme risks from the very reason of our own attractions. Our climate used"to draw an alien population of invalids until the increased facilities of travel opened regions where the sea which spreads e before the eye is not the Firth of Clyde, but the Mediterranean, and with whose atmosphere I fear no amount of love of home will enable us to compare our own. Then we are, as we may very frankly admit, so attractive in many ways that Glasgow and l'aisley, when they are in search of enjoyment, are drawn to turn us into a kind of suburb—(a laugh) —but if we finll in that with which natiu i has clothed our home, causes which may effect, at least in the summer months, onr exclusiyeness, we find there also one of the cause. which pro- bably binds us still more to tiie snot, it has been remarked as a pschological phenomenon that home-sickness is a feeling far more developed among those whose homes are picturesque. The flats of Lincolnshire do not give rise to the same feelings as the mountains of Switzerland and when we are away our minds and our hearts turn tenderly away towards the beautiful archipelago of Clyde, the woods and lochs of the Kyles, and the sublime outline of Arran. To cherish not such feelings only, but the more important ties of kindliness, of friendship, and of kindship we meet on such an occasion as the present and it is in the hope that it may serve to that end as well as to pleasure that I now renew the welcome which I began by offering you. (Loud applause.)
THE LIBERATION SOCIETY AND THE NEXT GENERAL ELECTION. The following circular has been issued by the Liberation Society 2, Sergeants' Inn Fleet-street, E.C. Dear Sir,—The approaching settlement of the question of parliamentary reform will enable the friends of religious equality to effectually press upon the constituencies arid ou Parliament the question of disestablishment, as one demand- ing early legislative attention. The extension of the franchise, the redistribution of seats, and the Corrupt Practices Act will, it is believed, largely increase the political power of that portion of the community in which the strength of the move- ment mainly lies. A bold and decisive electoral policy may therefore be adopted in many con- stituencies with a degree of success which previously could not be hoped for. But to ensure success, there must be prompt action, and more especially in the matter of Liberal organisation and of the choice of Liberal candidates. Early and careful prepara- tion is especially needed in the metropolis and the adjacent counties, where the Redistribution of Seats Bill will effect the most important changes. The London and suburban consti- tuencies will be increased from 10 to 61, and will return 62 instead of 22 members. The home counties will also send 33 instead of 23 members. These 95 members should include a large con- tingent of earnest supporters of disestablishment. To consider the best means for securing that im- portant object the committee of this society earnestly request your attendance at a conference, t,) be held on Tuesday evening next, the 13th of January, at the Memorial-hall, Farringdon-street. The Hon. E. Lyulph Stanley, M.P., will take the chair at seven o'clock. If you are unable to be present, we shall be much obliged by receiving from you any practical suggestions or information bearing on the object of the conference.—We are vours faithfullv. I HENRY R.

SAD SUICIDE OF A YOUNG LADY. The Result of Disappointed Love. A terrible occurrence created consternation and distress amid a wide circle in Devon and Corn- wall on Monday. Mr A. B. Collier, an artist of some note, lives at Carnamartha, an estate seven miles from Callington, Cornwall. Lilian, the second of his two daughters, was engaged to be married shortly, but a circumstance, the nature of which has not transpired, has caused the post- ponement of the wedding. In the morning she saw her sister off to join a huv-t in the neighbour- hood, and then went to her father's studio, her parents having gone out for a walk. On theirreturn they were told that a report as of firearms had been heard in the studio, and on causing the door to be broken open the dead body of their daughter was seen on the floor with a rifle by her side, and a bullet wound through her heart. She had left letters, the contents of which have not yet been disclosed. The deceased was 25 years of age, an amiable and highly accomplished young lady, much respected in the neighbourhood for her kindness and benevolence. Her father is major of the volunteers, and one of her uncles is Sir Robert Collier, Judge of Appeal, and another is colonel of the Second Devon Battalion of Volun- teers.
A man named Richard Winder, said to belong to Queenstown, was found lying in a stable in Liverpool on Monday with terrible wounds in the stomach. A four-pronged fork, covered with blood, lay near him. He was removed in a delirious state. I

THE OUTBREAK OF MEASLES AT CARDIFF. At the meeting of the chairman and vice- chairman of the Cardiff School Board, and the managers of the voluntary schools at Cardiff, on Sunday, to which reference was made in our issue of Monday, the importance of the question laid before them by the medical officer of health for Cardiff was not under-estimated but the proposition of closing the schools, even for two or three weeks, involved a large pecuniary loss, as well as to the children not affected or not living in affected houses. The disease has, to a certain extent, died out at Grangetown, where it first appealed, although two deaths from measles occurred last week on board the Havannah ship, where the disease is still very prevalent and at Canton it exists in its last stage. At the Dccks, Cardiff, and in that neighbourhood, fears of its spread still prevails, and measures are required to check it. The statement that the disease exists, or has been the cause of any mortality at Cathays, is entirely without foundation. The disease is confined to the northern parts of the town, and at Splotlands. The mortality in Splotlands last week, from measles, was alarming. Fifteen in a population, residing to the south of Newport-road, might well cause the medical officer to summon the school authorities at once, as the mortality in Cardiff would,in all probability, in a short time exceed that at Grangetown, which was 60 per 1,000 per annum. On Monday morning all the school attendance officers and the sanitary inspectors were sent to the Splotlands district, where the disease is beginning to spread. A house-to-house visitation was commenced, and this will be continued until every family has been visited. Strict instructions were given in every case, where disease existed in the house, not to send any of the children in the house to school, but the result will be in a few days to reduce the number of children attending these schools to one-half of the average. How- ever, the medical officer and the school board authorities and managers are taking every mea- sure they can to prevent the disease being carried to the schools, thus preventing them from becom- ing the centres of infection.
CHARGE OF ASSAULT AGAINST A CHEPSTOW DOCTOR. Instituting a Small-pox HospitgLLJ A Revenue Officer's Protest At the Chepstow petty sessions on Monday— before Major Lowe, Messrs G. Seys, Henry Clay, R. C. Jenkins, E. Richards, and P. P. Jenkins- Arthur Garland Lawrence, surgeon, practising at Chepstow, was charged with unlawfully assaulting William Bryan, revenue officer, at Crossway- green, on the night of December 16th. It appears from the statement of Mr Bailhache, of Newport, who prosecuted, that Dr.. Lawrence had a page-boy who was suffering from small- pox, and that ne vacated the old 'pike-house at Crossway-green, which is situated in the midst of several houses, intending to use it as an hospital. On the 4th December, about nine o'clock in the evening, he took the boy in an open vehicle to the cottage. Hearing a vehicle and expecting the doctor, Mr Bryan, who happened to be in a neighbour's house conversing on the subject, came out with his friend and went towards the 'pike-house, when Mr Lawrence, who was in the trap, with the horse's head towards the town, asked who was there. Mr Bryan protested against Dr. Lawrence bringing a c.se of small- pox into their midst. After further conversation, the doctor, using a threat, suddenly turned his horse round, and if Mr Bryan and his neighbour, Thomas Carter, had not moved quickly out of the way, they would have been knocked down. Dr. Lawrence then drove back to Chepstow. Mr Bailhache then called his witnesses, who corroborated his opening statement.—William Bryan, T homas Cator, and his wife, Mary Cator, having given evidence, Mr Ensor, of Cardiff, who appeared for Dr. Lawrence, briefly addressed the bench, contend- ing that there had been and could be no assault. he bench retired, and after an interval of about ten minutes, retcrned and announced that there had been an assault committed, but it was of so very slight a nature that they would dis- miss the charge.
A LOCAL COLLISION CASE. In the London Court of Admiralty on Mon- day-before Mr Justice Brett, with Trinity Mas- ters-the case of the owners of the steamer Tintern Abbey v.

The Redistribution Bit!. CARDIFF CORPORATION AND. THE BILL. At the meeting of the Qarditf Town Council, on Monday, the adoption m the report of the Redistribution Bill committee was proposed by the MAYOR and duly seconded. Mr CAREY spoke of the valuable assistance which had been rendered by Mr Sanders in the preparation of statistics for use before the Boun- dary Commissioners. (Hear, hear,) He had de- voted his energies to the work quite irrespective of any prospective advantage to the Liberal cause, and simply for the benefit of Cardiff. Alderman DUNCAN said that as a member of the committee he was struck very forcibly with the amazing amount of ability and talent displayed by Mr Sanders in this matter. He (Alder man Duncan) thought that it was a auost gracious and very pleasing thing that the services of Mr Sanders were acknowledged by Mr Carey, who occupied a representative position in the opposite camp. He went on to say that if the action taken did not ultimately result in securing the object they had in view, one of the greatest injustices that could possibly be inflicted upon any town would be done to Cardiff. (Applause.) He spoke now, not from any desire to place Cardiff in an artificial position, but absolute right and justice demanded that it should occupy the position of having two mem- bers to represent it in Parliament. He had an idea, from the bill introduced by the Government, that the distinction which formerly existed as between county and borough was entirely removed, and there seemed to him to be now no object whatever in keeping up those distinctions as between county and borough. Therefore, he maintained that what was good for the county was good for Cardiff, And that what was good for Cardiff was good for the county. Cardiff formed part of the county"—he ventured to say the most important part-and if the bill should be passed giving the county five seats, and Cardiff had only one, he said that a great injustice would be done not only to Cardiff but also to the county. However, this matter would have to be fought upon the floor of the House of Commons. The question before them was to acknowledge the eminent services rendered to the corporation by the work of Mr Sanders. (Hear, hear.) In reply to Mr Ramsdale, The MAYOK said that the committee would continue their work in Parliament if necessary. Mr CAREY proposed a vote of thanks to Mr Sanders, which was seconded by Mr REYNOLDS, and carried. Mr SANDERS, after remarking that he had acted out of love for Cardiff, said that the ex- clusion of that town from an additional member was the greatest blot that could be put on the Redistribution Bill. Remarking that the com- mittee had not yet done their work, he gave par- ticulars of the action which it would be necessary to take in support of the claims of Cardiff to ad- ditional Parliamentary representation. The report of the committee was adopted. THE ANTHRACITE MINERS AND LABOUR REPRESENTATION. At a monthly meeting of the anthracite miners at C'.ymaman, on Saturday, it was resolved—" That this meeting, after receiving the reports from the various collieries upon this question, is unanimously in favour of supporting a labour candidate in Parliament, and is of opinion that to raise a substantial and self-supporting fund would be the best means of doing so but it pre- ferred to fall in with any practical scheme that may be agreed upon by the majority of those most directly concerned in the'matter." THE DIVISION OF CARMARTHEN- I SHIRE. A private meeting of Liberal delegates from the various districts of Carmarthenshire was held at Carmarthen, on Monday, to consider the scheme proposed by the Boundary Commissioners for the division of "the county under the Redistribution Bill. Mr W. R. H. Powell, M.P., took the chair, and there was a representative attendance of delegates, Sir J. Jones Jenkins, M.P., being present. Considerable discussion took place as to the details of the commissioners' scheme, which was, however, considered, on the whole, to be satisfactory, and no motion was made to amend it in any particular. It was unanimously agreed, on the motion of Mr George Thomas, to urge upon the commissioner on Wednesday the desirability of naming the division the Carmar- then Division. THE BOUNDARY COMMISSION AT BRIDGEND. Our Bridgend reporter writes :—The chairman of the Bridgend Local Board having simply handed in the written statement of the scheme suggested by that body without any explanation, the public know nothing' of the proposals placed in the hands of the commissioner (Major Tullock) on Friday. The area mapped out is almost entirely agricultural, with the exception of the parish of Newcastle-higher, and begins at a poiht near to Cardiff, traversing in a westerly direction as far as Aberavon Bar. Thi3 includes a popula- tion of upwards of 44,000. An objection was raised to Bridgend being annexed to Llandaff or Neath, and a desire was expressed that the town should retain its ancient importance as a chief polling place. There was also a further suggestion that the district should be called Mid Glamorgan or Central Glamorgan. It will thus be seen that the scheme is more comprehensive than the one adopted by the Cowbridge Farmer's Club, and is numerically stronger in point of population. It is worthy of notice that under the proposal of the Government one portion of the town of Bridgend is to be annexed to Llandaff, and the other part (Newcastle) to the Vale of Neath.
BREACHES OF COLLIERY RULES IN THE RHONDDA. At Ystrad police-court on Monday-before Mr J. Ignatus Williama, stipendiary-George Hodder and James Hodder, father and son, col- liers, employed at the Eastern Pit, Ocean Col- lieries, the property of Messrs D. Davies and Sons, were charged with the violation of one of the special rules which 6ays that 4' a charge of powder which has missed fire shall not be un- rammed.—David Hannah, under-manager, de- posad that on tne 31st December, Geo. Hodder came to his house and asked him if he had heard of the accident that had happened to him.—Witness replied he had not.—Defendant informed him that he had unrammed a shot which had missed fire, and while be was in the act of doing so it exploded, occasioning serious injuries to his face, which dis- abled him.—Witness told defendant that he had committed a breach of one of the special rules, and must have known it.—Defendant, although having been engaged underground Over 20 years, pleaded ignorance.—The Stipendiary remarked that although he had been already punished by the injury he had received, yet, from the import- ance of the offence, he could not impose a less fin than £1 and costs. Morgan Williams and Jenkin Richards, comers, employed at the same colliery, were also charged with the violation of the 290th speoial rule, which says that any person employed at the colliery who knows that any other person has neglected or committed a breach of any pro- vision of the act or special rules shall immediately report the fact to the manager or under manager, who shall enter the report in the daily report book, and any person failing to observe this rule shall himself be held responsible as an accessory to the commission of the offence so known to him, and shall be liable to be convicted as a principal." Jacob Ray, manager, s;a;d he went to the de- fendants' stalls on the 29th December, and en- quired if any of them knew that Hodder had unrammed the shot which he had fired on the previous Monday. Both replied that they did not. However, after pressing upon Williams, he ultimately admitted that he knew.—Mr W. Jen- kins, principal manager of the Ocean Collieries, stated that the defendants had been in his em- ploy for a considerable number of years, and had found them very careful. His object in prosecu- ting the defendants was to make an example for others. Each was fined £1 and costs.
CARDIFF CORPORATION AND THE JUDGES' LODGINGS. A meeting of the judge's lodgings' committee was held to-day at the Town-hall. Mr Alderman Jones presided, and there were present the mayor (M. A. Fulton), Sanders, Jacobs, and Morgan.- A letter, dated the 8th inst., was read from Mrs Kelly stating that she had made every endeavour to procure the requisite accommodation for tne clerks, attendants, and other persons constituting the retinut; of the judges, but without suecess, and she was therefore with great reluctance obliged to decline the offer to use her residence for the accommodation of the judges at the ensuing assizes.—It was resolved that the mayor aud Mr Alderman Jones be desired to make inquiries and arrangements for the necessary lodgings for the judges.
Advance on Khartoum. '1 PANIC IN 0SMAN DIGNA'S CAMP I [EEUTER'S TELEGRAM.] I CAIRO, Monday.-General Grenfell will be ap- pointed to the command of the Egyptian army on the retirement cf Sir Evelyn Wood from that post, at the close of the Soudan campaign. [CENTRAL NEWS TELEGRAM.] CAIRO, Monday Evening.—Telegrams received here to-day from Suakim indicate that, as has all along been expected here, Lord Wolseley's vigorous operations have had a most wholesome effect in that part of the Soudan. There does not appear to have been any truth in the reports that Osman Digna had been reinforced to any con- siderable extent. On the contrary, to-day's advices state that the news of the continuous advance of the British expedition has caused the greatest panic in Osman's camp. l" TIMES" TELEGRAM.] I ALEXAN DRIA, Mond -,iy. Considerable sympathy is expressed with Commander Hammell, who, having rendered invaluable services in navigating the river cataracts, has now been shelved by the appointment of Lord C. Beresford to the com- mand of the naval brigade. Commander Ham- mell has refused to act has second in command, or to succeed Lord C. Beresford as naval aide de Camp to Lord Woiseley. Captain Redfern has also been superseded. r" DAILY NEWS TELEGRAM. 1 [ CAIRO, Monday.—News has been received here from Suakim that Osman Digna, having failed to procure reinforcements from the tribes from which he had expected assistance, had made preparations to retire to the hills as soon as the which he had expected assistance, had made preparations to retire to the hills as soon as the British force is reported at Shendy.. S Four hundred hospital beds are to be provided at Suakim in wooden huts, and increased if necessary on the shortest notice to meet any emergency, on Lord Wolseiey's return, via Berber, or any subsequent movement in that direction. i To-day's Daily News authbritatively contradicts u the statement that Lord Wolseley has asked for a picked force to be sent; to Suakim, and had also requested that another battalion should be sent to Egypt.
ENGLAND, FRANCE, AND EGYPT. I I" MORNING l-'OSTTELEGRAM.] II VIENNA, Monday.—I learn that the French I proposals respecting Egypt will be published to-morrow. They are that a French loan shall be guaranteed by all the Powers interested in the future of the Delta, that the coupon be slightly cut, but any future surplus to be applied to idemnify- I ing the bondholders and that all future conces- f sions to England shall depend on the main ques- tion whether that power is prepared to give a positive guarantee to withdraw from Egypt at the earliest possible date. ["TIMES" TELEGRAM.] I VIENNA, Monday.—The confidential enquiry « addressed to the three Imperial Powers by France. ¡ whether they were disposed to give a guarantee t for the proposed Egyptian loan, has led to no results. It remains to be seen how far this will delay the resuscitation of the counter proposals.
ENGLAND AND GERMAN ( AMBITION. ( To-day's Times referring to the speech of Princ Bismarck in the German Beichstag, says" IT would be out of question to regulate the expansiott of the vast organic mass of the British Empire by; ,1 theories of deference to the susceptibilities, real ors imaginary, of any other nation. We desire tu| remain on friendly terms with all our continental! neighbours, and for reasons apparent to evers| Englishman and every German—with none mo than with Germany. We cannot, however, cout sent to thrust back and humiliate our fellow-sub-) jects in the colonies, who have done more for th8t conquest of barbarism and desolation in the in;' terests of modern and progressive society than alK the other peoples of the civilised world, in com-) pliance with sentimental exigencies, FrenchYoiS- German."
THE FRENCH MONARCHISTS. To-day's Morning Post understands that thflg present leaders of the French Royalists are oirt the point of coming to a decisive resolution upoix., the necessity of recognising universal suffrage as the indispensible basis of Monarchy in France.-? They may seek to avoid an actual repetition of the well-known theory of Imperialism, which also bases the throne upon the universal vote of the nation but in effect it is said that the remodellelt Royalism will reproduce the essential feature of the empire. Most, if not all, of the Monarchical K party are expected to make a complete profession 'j of universal suffrage at the general election in the I iourse of a few months.
THE CONFERENCE AT BERLIN. To-day's Morning Post understands that con- j siderable irritation prevails among Plenipo- f tentiaries at Berlin, in consequence of their being so long unable to meet, owing to Sir E. Malefc being without instructions as to the third point —the neutrality of the territories. Earl Granville has informed Sir E. Malet that the point has been submitted to the law advisers of the Crown, as it involves several complicated points, especially as regards international law.
