THE date of the Coronation is still the subject of a good deal of rash speculation. It has been per- sistently stated that the event will take place on a Saturday, one date being given as May 24th and another as June 28th. Neither is likely to be correct, for there are many objections to a Saturday ceremony. It is said the KinloC favours Wednesday, and it is expected that June 25th will be selected as the date,—" Daily Chronicle."
Casualties in the War. The War Office have issued with commendable promptitude, a statement shewing the number of casualties reported from South Africa during the month of May, and also the total casualties recorded since the beginning of the War. Such a return not only enables us to see pretty uearly what the loss of life has been, but,wheu-cornpared with other tables, shows us to what extent the war is less fatal than it was. There is a feature which strikes one particularly upon examination of these returns, viz., the very much larger number of deaths from disease than from wounds. Thus, at the end of last year, the number of deaths in South Africa, from known causes was 12,1-58, and by May 31st, this toul had been increased to 15,713. It is also reported that since the War began 97 officers and men have died in captivity from causes which are not stated, and 343 have died of those who have been pent home as invalids. The total number of known deaths is therefore 16,153. There are also 723 reported as "missing," which means, with regard to many of them, that the War Office does not know what has become of them. Many are dead, sotne have re-joined, without their return having been yet notified to the War Office, others are alive and in the hands of the enemy. But, reverting to the question of the LARGE NUMBER OF BEATHS FROM DISEASE, we find that to December 31st, the number of those who were killed in action, died cf wounds, or met their death accidentally, was 426 officers, and 4,451 men. Of deaths from disease, there were 174 officers, 7,011 non-commissioned officers and men. By the eud of May. th« number of deaths from wounds, etc., was 494 officers, 5,455 men, and the deaths from disease had increased to 241 officer*, 9,426 men. We therefore find in this, as in all other wars, a confirmation of the remark of Sir William Howard Russell concerning the campaign in the Crimea. "Heaven" he said, lets loose all its plagues on those who shed men's blood, even in the holiest causes." The pestilence by day and night, 11 deadly fever, cholera, dysentery, strategical error! incompetence, and apathy of chieftains, culpable inactivity, fatal sudicity-all these follow in the train of armies, and kill more than bullet or sword," Another thing which strikes one, is the LARGE PROPORTION OF OFFICERS among the killed. Of the total number of deaths from disease, the officers furnished Jess than 2-J per 2 cent., but when we come to deaths from violence, we find that the proportion is more than 8 per cent. Of the wounded also, the officers furnished close upon 8 per cent. It is evident, therefore, that the officers have provided very much more than their share of kille(I and wounded, as they do in nearly all campaigns. The instructions which they received at the beginning of the campaign left them no option in this respect, and it is evident that the lives of a large number of officers have been thrown away by unnecessary aud useless exposure to danger.
Judge Owen and Horse Dealing. Judge Owen heard a ease at Tredegar, on Tuesday, in which Joseph Partridge, green-grocer, Abertillerv, claimed 1;11 10s. from E. Hodge, horse-dealer, Newport. Plaintiff bought a mare from defendant at Pontypool Fair for Y,12, but afterwards exchanged it for another, and paid ar additional £ 2 10s. The horse was not seven years' old and sound as warranted, and when sold by auction brought X-5 2s. 6d. Mr. Watkins, veterin- ary surgeon, Tredegar, said the animal was about 15 years' old and broken-winded of long standing. In reply to his Honour, defendant admitted that he did represent the horse as seven years' old, but remarked that --he did not say how much more." Judge Owen Ob, that's one of your little tricks. I have been in a horse-dealing yard myself." The claim was for the money paid and expensas, less the result of the auction, and judgment was given for plaintiff with costs.
The War Office Re organisation. A business-like report, covering all the points included in the terms of reference, has been presented by the Committee which was appointed to consider how order might be evolved out of chaos at the War Office. The document fills nine columns of the Times, but the recommendations contained in it could be summed ia a few words, to apply to the work of the department the principles of common sense, and the business-like methods adopted by every firm, which is not on the high road to bankruptcy. So simple is some of the advice contained in the report, that the Committee must surely have smiled when they resolved to tender it. Take for example, the first three recommendations— to abolish the present system of ruling the Army by minute regulations, and elaborate reports, to simplify all such regulations as cannot be dispensed with. and to create a system of supervision which would subject the value received for public expenditure to a practical test. Again, the Committee consider that the Director of Contracts should be a man OF PROVED BUSINESS CAPACITY;" I that frequent and purposeless moving of regiments at home should be avoided, that pay lists should be made simple and intelli- gible, and so on. It may be thought that some of the many well-paid officials might have discovered these things before, and that it could scarcely be necessary for a committee to sit for the purpose of considering such elementary matters. But, however self-evident may be the sugges- tions of the Committee it is clear that there was the most ample need of them. They find the Army governed by a mass of minute and complex regulations," and as regards "central control and direction the present methods of the War Office are conspicuously out of harmony with the best business practice:" "it is impossible to trace any systematic co-ordination in the work of the great departments, and so many other things are described as unsatisfactory that it would be impossible even to enumerate them within the limits of this article. The Committee have mercifully refrained from illustrating their remarks by examples, but they tell us of one practice which obtains, and from that it would probably not be very unfair to judge of all. Questions respecting the allowance of small sums which might easily have been settled locally have led to "enormous correspon- dence," involving an outlay of time, stationery, and postage, often exceeding the amount recovered. One of the instructions of the Committee was to report any amendments which would bring the work of the War Office more into harmony with that of large business undertakings. The Committee have considered this aspect and point out that there are certain well- defined principles of management in all well-conducted business corporations." I- SEVEN OF THESE PRINCIPLES, particularly applicable to the War Office, are detailed, and we are informed that they are all conspicuously absent. We need not refer to these seven points, but speaking generally, we should think that the War Office officials ought to feel thankful that they are managing the military affairs of a 0 n great Empire, and not a small general shop, conducted at their own expense. The most important of all the recommendations of the Committee is the last, wherein they draw attention to the importance of selecting for posts at the War Office, officers who have shown administrative, as well as military capacity, and thoroughly qualified Civil officials. That is pretty well the root of the whole matter. Able men might make something out of a bad system, but the best system that the wit of man can devise must be ineffectual when administered by men who are deficient in intelligence and capacity. —-

The Senghenydd Disaster. It is reported that at last the explorers at Senghenydd have practically fixed the location of probably the whole of the remaining bodies in the pit. Some little time, however, must elapse before they are reached, as they are under very heavy falls in the main road, which have been crossed and re-crossed during the exploration. The decomposi- tion of the remains has led to their discovery. It is believed that the amount that will be paid to the relatives of the victims in compensation will reach between £ 15,000 and £ 16,000. Already S700 has been advanced to several cases by the Federation to meet immediate necessities. Harris has improved greatly during the past few days. He eats and sleeps very well, and is allowed to smoke occasionally. He still complains of severe pains in his head. The burns on his head and hands are almost healed. He is still unaware of the explosion, and thinks that an accident happened to himself alone.

Welsh Industries I A sale and Exhibition of Welsh Industiies was held on the 6th and 7th idat., at Grosvenor House, London. Stalls were held by Lady Windsor, Lady Llangattock, Lady Cawdor, and the Duchess of Westminster. On passing rounJ the rooms the Duchess of Westminster, by whom the stle was opened, invited Mrs. Gruffydd Richards, harpist to the Hon. Mrs. Herbert, of Llanover, to play ou the triple harp, and was interested in the music of the "March of the Men of Glamorgan." As lant year, Mrs. Richards and Mr. Pedr James, also of Llan- over, the ptmilliou singer, were both in native costume, through the courtesy and patriotism of the Hon. Mrn. Herbert. Among those also present were the Duchess of Beaufort, Lady Evit Wynd- harn-Q'iin. and the lien. Mrs. Herbert. The Misses Wiiliams. of A berpergwm, were in Welsh costumu. 011 Friday the Duchess of Beaufort, who opened the sale on that day, purchased most liberaliy. especially from the stalls representing the counties in which she was directly interested. Lady Llan- gattock had very little left—a point to emphasised, because this year her stall was largely male up of the artistic efforts of the boys a d girls of elementary schools in Monmouth; hi re. The pen and pencil drawings, and water colour efforts were very creditable, aud Lady Llangattock is naturally plcaed with the success of the innovation. Old scholars of the schools in a few instances also sent examples.
