The Hague Conference. The Peace Conference has made some advances which are both definite and satisfactory, aud with regard to the larger issues it is something to know what are the differences which stand in the way of formally pledging the nations to peace. Not much more than this preliminary clearing of the air was expected from the discussion at the Hague, and with time it is quite possible that the difficulties, which now appear insurmountable, may gradually be found capable of adjustment. The Conference will probably conclude its present labours in the course of a week or two, when an adjournment will be made, in order to allow the several Governments to consider the resolutions passed, and the report of the proceedings. Afterwards it may be found practicable to make further advances in the right direction, before the delegates re-assemble at the Hague for the ratification of the work accomplished. The general expectation was that the Conference would prove more or less of a failure, but the last word has not been said, and it would be altogether premature to judge its results by present appearances. THE LABOURS OF THE CONFERENCE have been principally undertaken by three Commissions. The first of these has dealt with the subject of disarmament, and of weapons of war. On the larger question it has been chiefly concerned with the Russian proposals, which suggested that the Powers should agree for five years not to raise their military strength either by numbers or financial preparations. That is the effective peace footing, and the war budget of each Power would be fixed by a kind of mutual agreement. An exception was to be made with regardjto Colonial troops," and this would seem to be specially designed to meet any British objections. So long as present conditions are maintained, we have no need or desire to increase our home forces, but we could not so easily bind ourselves in India, and other parts of the Empire. It would, however, be impossible to draw a hard and fast distinction between Colonial and other troops, and there would be no guarantee against an underhand increase by a little prevarication. It seems clear that the Conference will make no definite progress with the question of a reduction or limitation of either military or naval armaments. That of course was ITS CHIEF OBJECT, and it remains to be seen whether any after developments are possible. As regards the establishment of a permanent Tribunal of Arbitration, to which the British and American representatives have mainly devoted their efforts, the outlook is more promising. The German Emperor is not kindly disposed to any system of organised arbitration. It is not in accordance with his special character as War Lord, and any limitation of the size of armies, or of Germany's right to appeal to arms, is opposed to his ideas of the divine right of monarchs. Yet in spite of this discouragement we are promised a permanent Bureau, which, at least, will make a start in providing the necessary machinery for the adjustment of international disputes. The remaining sectiou of the Conference, which has dealt with various modifications and extensions of the Geneva and Brussels Conventions, has made several practical recommendations. It has been decided that THE RED CROSS IS TO BE HELD SACRED in naval ns well as in military warfare. Its objection to our soft-nosed Diiin Dum bullet seems a little out of the way, because any such objections would equally apply to all bullets. It has a softened head, which causes the lead to spread ou striking, but it is said to be no more, even if it isas destruct ive,than the missiles most-' ly in the Continental armies. The Conference proposes to prohibit certain horrible forms of destruction, such as the use of explosive bullets, asphyxiating-gases, the dropping of explosives from balloons, and other engines of warfare. Altogether the Conference appears to entertain I a lively dread of the future developments of the higher chemistry and genius now being devoted to the science of destruction. This feeling will not be without its influence in the after considerations of the proceedings of the Conference. It ought at least to emphasise the ¡ necessity for arriving at some international agreement which will practically assure the blessings of peace to the world.

I Barnum & Bailey's at Newport. 50,000 PEOPLE WITNESS THE STREET PEOCESSION. Barnum and Bailey's "Greatest Show on Earth" duly arrived at Shaftesbury Park, Newport, and caused such a furore as was never witnessed before, even in the memory of the oldest inhabitant. The wonderful combination was evidently on Monday, well appreciated, for as soon as daylight dawned crowds of people were in the street, and thousands more continued to arrive up to nine o'clock, the time fixed for the starting of the procession. Newport was absolutely choke- full of people, the route of the procession, although it was a long one, being absolutely unable to hold all who wanted to see, free of charge, more than very often comprises the whole of the attractions of the usual circus. What the crowds saw must have well whetted their appetites for seeing the show under canvas, for at the time of opening for the afternoon performance just after ten o'clock there was a rush for the open space in front of the main entrance. The weather was splendid, and excursions from all parts deposited multitudes at High-street Station all the morning up to one o'clock. The number of visitors in the town was unprecedented, and the tradesmen who supplied refreshments reaped a- golden harvest. The greatest show on earth was evidently the cause of more money being spent in the town than it took away. Shop windows, watis, and everything which placed observers above the heads of those in the street were let out at prices ranging from 3d. upwards. Walls which were decidedly uncom- fortable had a monetary value for the time being, and trams and vehicles of all kinds filled up the side streets, all crammed with sightseers. The route of the Barnum and Bailey free street parade on Monday was as follows:—Evans-street, Shaftembury- street, Dock-street, Bolt-street, Commercial-street, High-street, Shaftesbury- street, Evans-street, return. The eulogistic notices in the press relative to the show must have prepared everyone for some- thing extraordinary in the circus line. The collection of freaks baffles description, and with the acrobatic displays, splendid horsemanship, and other attractions, nobody who went to the show coulq be disappointed. The arrangements made for the reception of the enormous crowds were splendid. The huge volume of people were managed in a wonderfully clever manner, being kept amused hours before the circus opened, by free performances, and tours around the splendid side show, which had been provided. There were fifteen thousand tickets on sale, and inside the main tent there were as many seats, so that once the pleasure-seeker obtained the paste-board he had the satisfaction of knowing that no matter what the crowd did, a seat was awaiting him. The marvellous celerity and despatch which characterised every operation was a valuable object lesson to anyone. As to the attractions of the show, there is no need to dilate upon them at length. The splendid acrobatic feat known as the Japanese slide for life is worth going miles to see. At the afternoon performance there was not a vacant seat in the circus tent, and the heat was was almost unbearable. In the evening the crush was not quite so bad, plenty of space being obtainable in seats from 2s. upwards. At night the show removed to Gloucester.

I The Gleaner. WHOLESALE SHEEP STEALING IN HEREFORD- SHIRE.—At Herefordshire Quarter Sessions on Monday, William Perks, 19, labourer, and Walter Cornwall, 22, groom, pleaded guilty to charges of stealing nine sheep and thirteen lambs from Mr. T. W. Dent's farm, at Much Cowarne, on May 10th, and nine sheep and three lambs from the farm of Mr. T. F. Benbow, at Ocle Pitchard, on May 31st.-Prisoners were sentenced to eighteen months' hard labour for each offence, the sentences to run concurrently.—The sum of 19 was found on the prisoners, and the justices ordered this to be divided among perions who had paid the prisoners money, and who made application for that money to be refunded. ESCAPE OF WOLVEs.-Lord George Sanger's circus visited Abertillery on Thursday, and on Friday morning it was discovered that two wolves had escaped from their cage. Men going to work saw the animals at large and gave information, and ac 6.30 one of them was found in an outhouse at Brynteg. Several men tried to get it out by means of ropes, &c., but it was not until nine o'clock that they secured their captive and took it to the van. The other one escaped to the mountain district between Pontypool and Abertillery, and then crossed the valley to the Arael Mountain. On Sunday afternoon it was shot by a farmer on a mountain near Crumlin. It had killed two sheep and was becoming a terror to farmers. NOT OUT 628. —At the Clifton College match between Clarke's House and North Town (junior), the lad Collins made 509 runs on Friday, not out. This exceeded the highest score on record, viz., 485 which Stoddart made for Hampstead in 1886. On Monday Collins ran his score up to 598 not out, and on Tuesday carried his bat through the innings for 628. Dr. Grace, commenting on Collin's performance, says:—"Though the game was only a junior house match, the performance is something wonderful. I wonder the youngster had strength to do it." THE CHANDOS-POLE DIVORCE CASE.—In the Divorce Court on Tuesday the suit of Mrs. Kathleen Annie Chandos-Pole, of Kiddiugton Hall, Woodstock, for a dissolution of her marriage with Mr. Samuel Chandos-Pole was concluded, but the jury were unable to agree as to a verdict, and the case, consequently, stands over for the consideration whether the petitioner apply for a judicial separation.

The Riglii Kind of Lamps. Z5 If we cannot get good oil it is the more necessary that we should have good lamps. Any regulations, however, that may be made by statute with this'object can affect only the lamps made in the future, not those in use at present, unless, indeed, an anxious Government will give us new lamps for old. But it is a good thing in any case to know what is the best lamp to use for safety. Dr. Stephenson Macadam, lecturer in chemistry at the Edinburgh College of Surgeons, has published a pamphlet which incidentally touches on the question of lamps. Contrary, as it might seem, to expectation, Dr. Macadam prefers one with a glass fount, in which you can see how the oil is diminishing. He objects to founts which have any special opening for the purpose of filliug. He protests, too, against the use of the popular standard lamps. "Many of the founts in these lamps become very highly heated from imperfectly aired burners and from the large shades which are placed above them, and which are often heavily ornamented with coloured muslin or tissue paper of the flimsiest and most inflammable nature. With any oil, but more especially with the low-flash oils, these standard lamps are most dangerous, not only from the possibility of explosion within the lamp fount, but from the facility with which such a tall lamp can be upset by a push, or by an article falling against it. These standard lamps are most unsafe in houses, and should only be tolerated when the base of each is sufficiently weighted or is securely bolted to the floor or wall, and when the top-heavy combustible shade is discarded." The standard lamp is so precious to the soul of the would be sesthetic house-mistress, and the shade to the bazaar worker, that we fear it may be difficult to get rid of them. But it is well to recognise the dangers attendant on their use, so that, even if they are not totally abolished, they may be guarded with the utmost care. After all, they are not much of a success as illuminating agents. Would it not be quite as satisfactory to keep them purely for ornament, with no oil in the founts, and never try to light them ?-" The Hospital."
