A Shocking Fatality. I A shocking fatality occurred on the Great Western Railway at Reading. Miss Nancy Butler, a schoolmistress, of Hampstead Norris, Berkshire, had just wished her mother and a friend "Good-bye," when she overbalanced herself and fell on to the rails. At the same moment a London express dashed through the station, and Miss Butler was cut to pieces.

I The Aliens' Bill. This all-important Government measure, which was wrecked by Radical obstruction in Grand Committee last summer, was re- introduced into the House of Commons on Tuesday, and the Prime Minister has given a pledge that the Government will use its. best endeavours to pass it into law this Session. In explaining the urgent need of the Bill, and stating the alarming increase of pauper aliens into the country during the. past year, the Home Secretary said The evils which these aliens bring in- their train-overcrowding, living in in- sanitary conditions, lowering of the general standard of life, immorality and crime- have also unfortunately increased. "There is no doubt about these facts. The criminal statistics show that alien crime has steadily increased in this country, bot4 absolutely and relatively to the total prison population. In 1900 3,138 alien prisoners were received in our prisons, and in 1904 the number was 4,774. I have received complaints, not only from recorders, not only from the London stipendiary magistrates, who have very largely to deal with cases of aliens, but also from judges of the High Courts, as to the large amount of work, and I think un- necessary work, cast upon them by this class of criminal. We are determined to deal with this organised traffic in uudesirable aliens, and we cannot limit it to an expulsion from this country of those who come within the scope of the courts of law in this country. "We do not propose in any way to hamper the bona fide transmigrant. He is, especially exempted from the restrictions imposed upon other alien immigrants. The Bill is intended not only to repel the criminal alien, but to restrict the itnmi- gration into this country of undesirable aliens, whose number has very considerably increased recently, and thus to prevent this country being used as a receptacle for destitute, diseased, and criminal aliens." In the absence of a Front Bench spokes- man on the Opposition side of the House, Sir Charles Dilke promised uncompromising hostility to the Bill, which would, he said, interfere with the right of asylum without proved necessity. It was, nevertheless, read a first time without a division.
I USK. Agent-Mrs. E. K. Jones, Stationer PALM SUNDAY.—The time-honoured custom, irt Wales and the bordering counties, of decorating the graves of the departed with wild or cultivated flowers on Palm Sunday, was duly observed in the various churchyards of Monmouthshire, on Sunday last, but, although flowers were plentiful, the attendance generally was not so numerous as 0» many previous occasions, due, probably, to the inclemency of the weather.
ANGLING. The river was in a state of flood from Friday in last week until Tuesday, in consequence of the recent heavy rains, and angling was at a standstill. The river is now, however, in fine condition, and. given fine weather, anglers should enjoy a consider- able amount of sport during the holidays. Tiier0 are at present more season ticket-holders residing in the town than for some time past. SALMON KILLS. Wednesday, April 12th-Captain Phillips, ones lOlbs.

A correspondent writes:—Great interest was taken in the contest, as Newport possessed an un- broken record with the Morris tube, whilst the home team had shown great improvement of late, and had not been beaten this year. It had been arranged for each team to consist of ten or more men, the eight best scores to count. Unfortu- nately, time did not permit of more than eight men a-side shooting, but Newport's chances were
