￼ THE PEACE TREATY. t ? ?a—? & J??AJ&???'?rM ? I Preliminaries To-day. fit GERMANS TO HEAR TO-MORROW. A Reuter's Paris message received by the Cambria Daily Leader this morn- ing says: It is officially announced that the pre- liminaries of the treaty of peace with Germany will be communicated to- morrow (Tuesday) afterncon'to the dele- gates of the belligerent powers assembled at the Quai D'Orsay. The document will be handed to the 'German Plenipotentiaries at 3 on Wed- nesday afternoon, at the Trianon Palace. ITALIANS RETURNING. As we announced overnight, Signor Orlando and Baron Sonnino, the Italian delegates to the Peace Conference, are due to arrive in Paris to-morrow morn- ing. A Paris message says that both sides are showing the utmost goodwill, and there is every hope of a speedy solution of the Fiume-Dalmatian question, which now is the only serious obstacle on the Allied side in the way of peace -Reuter. According to an Exchange message from Paris, the Fiume question has been settled in full agreement with the Italian Government, on the basis that Fiume is to remain an autonomous port for two years, 'at the end of which time it will be assigned to Italy. •ITALIAN COLONY OVERJOYED PARIS, Monday (received Tuesclay). J News of the return to Paris of Signor Orlando and Baron Sonnino has been received with keen satisfaction by Italian colony in Paris. The impression gathered 1 after conversation with several members of Italian delegation is that Signor Orlando and Baron Sonnino decided to return because of their desire not to cause any embarrasment to the Allies as regards Germany. They did not wish the latter to be able to have any excuse whatever for delaying their signing of the Peace Treaty. Finally, Italy felt that it was necessary at the present moment that the Allies should form an united block in order to facilitate and accelerate the conclusion of Peace which was so earnestly desired by the Nations. Furthermore, conversations exchanged betwèen the Chancelleries within the last I few days have proved to Italy that there I' are possibilities of a just and satisfactory eolution of the Adriatic problem. ———— RHINE OCCUPATION. I PARIS, Tuesday. Contrary to the rumours which have been prevalent for some time it is now stated that American and British con- tingents will participate for two years in the military occupation of the left bank of the Rhine for determination and economic purposes. The left bank will during that period remain part of the rsst of Germany. l 15 DAYS FOR COUNTER- I PROPOSALS. PARIS, Tuesday. M.

I FIRST WEEK IN JUNE. I I The signature of the Treaty will take I place between June 3rd and 5th.
MORE MAD DOGS. ————— I Suspected Animals in Welsh l Area. I Five more cases of dog-madnesfi were 1 confirmed on Monday, including two in I the London area—at East Molesey and Shepherd's Bufh. The others, were at Cardiff (2) and Bridgend. Glam. There l have now been seven confirmed cast's in I the London area. Reports of suspected cases were re- ceived on Monday from Cricklewood, N.W. (where a cat and three kittens are alleged to have the disease), Hammer- smith, Plumstead, S.E., East Dulwich, Peckham, Bromley (Kent), Grimsby, Cardiff, and Pontyclun (Glam.). The case of the Ebbw Vale cat, reported on Monday, is still under investigation. An insurance company has initiated a scheme of insurance against hydro- phobia.
STALE BREAD BEST. I Doctor's Advice at Govern- ment Inquiry. Dr. Sturge, a Paddington practitioner; giving evidence on Monday before the Government Commit-tee which is con- sidering the question of night baking, said that from the health point of view he favoured stale bread, and said that he would like to see a continuation of t4e Bread Order prohibiting the sale of bread lees than 12 hours tld. It would make JÜght work unnecessary for bakers, and ,-would be better for the community, as it made a happier family life. "One baker's -if! told me," he said, that since her husband went off night *ork the place wa6 like heaven compared Vith what it was before." (Laughter). Stale bread was beneficial. In his opinion a large amount of ill-health was due to chronic indigestion and faulty teeth. In his home bread was AS hours pld. • I go to the shop to get it," he added, because I realise it is f-o hnpurtant not that it to have fresh bread. He ad<led that it kept fresh in earthenware pans. The chairman: When does it get stale? —I liavp had it sometimes three or fbur days old. Witness stated that new bread, fre- quently caueed indigestion, and aplr eitis followed. >. I
DURING THE RETREAT. I I How 150 Huts With Equipment I and Stores Were Lost. The Y.M.C.A. have during the past five years proved to be the church at work. Never has it had such an opportunity, and it may be truly said to have grasped the situation in a masterly way. Under the superb directorship of Sir Arthur K. Yapp, K.B.E., secretary of the National Y.M.C.A., men have rallied to cater for each army in the field. The gross profits to an outsider may iippear to represent a large sum; net profits is another phase, and the free gifts of stores, writing paper, etc., together with the working expenses more than absorbed the total, but enabled a magni- ficent result to be made for God and humanity* During March, 1918, the writer, with 4iany others, suffered heavily in his camp, all having to be abandoned. At this time 150 huts were lost with equip- ment and stores* which were left to the Tommies to demolish. Yet the Y.M.C.A. held on, and then pushed forward with the OccupttionAflnles, To this Jubilee Fund all are asked to subscribe, so enabling the Y.M.C.A., by securing the to train for Swansea a strong and vigorous nwhliood.

SWANSEA'S TRADE. How War Shrinkage Was Arrested. There are many interesting- statistics in the Swajisea Harbour Trust's Return of Trade for 1918. That the war shrinkage b!m-; been arrested is shown by the follow- in c figures:—■ -0 Decrease on Trade-Tons, previous year. 1916 5,150,093 720,384 1917 4,232,730 923,363 1918 4,183,202 49,528 The principal increase was in tin and terne plates (35,000- tons), and the prin- cipal increase in coal (137,000 tone). Imports decreased 82,009 tone and exports 32,481 tons a percentage decrease on both heads of 1.1. The manager (Mr. P. W. Phillips) reports that with the important develop- ments now under consideration it is .con-I fidently expected that, with the pacing of the war conditions, the tendency of trad-a will revert to that of prior to 1914. The effect of the war is eloquently shown in a table showing the trade since 1852. Tonnage of vessels was in 1852, 283,338; the rise was consistent (with one small exception) to 1913, when it was 3,407,355 tons; then figures fell consis- tently to 1,801.623 in 1917. Last year, there was an improvement to 1,820,902 tons.
STOLEN BICYCLE. B/ishopston Postman Bound Over. The tale of the disappearance of a. bicycle was unfolded before the Gower Bench of magistrates on Tuesday, when Andrew Williams, postman, Bieh^pston, was summoned for the theft nf a bicycle belonging to Edward Janes Barrett, Cwm-road, Pentre, Swansea. Mr. C. H. Newcombe appeared for Williams, and evidence was given to the effect that on June 8th last year a bicycle was left in a shed attached to Fairwood Cottage, Parkmill, wher,- .,il- liams was in the habit of waiting fpr the mail.. Mrs. Pulford, occupant of the cottage, said that on several occasions defendant spoke of hte bike, and 6he mieeed it on the morning of June 25th. Vii I SSI cG. BAIL BEAR! NQS.^ I, Ti.e machine was identraod by Tne brother-in-law of prosecucr, who said a I few days before Easter Monday he lisir the machine outside the Bishopeton Poat Otiic £ and spoke to Williams about it. Defendant said in reply that he pur- chased it from a man in the Mumbles for JE2. Witness said he was a sport, I and that if thee were seven ball bearings missing in that machine it wa6 not ours." On examination the ball bear- ings were found to be missing. When charged by P.C. Parry defen- 1 dam replied that he did not steal the machine, as he had too much at stake. Defendant pleaded not guilty. Mr. Newcombe said that if he had taken the bicycle from the shed he would not have taken it there for many months after- wards. Certainly it was not discreet for the man to buy a bicycle from an un- known man. The Bench held that Williams was guilty, but in view of his good character he was bound over for 12 months.

WINDING-UP ORDER .1 DECISION IN MGRRISTON MONEY I i SOCIETY CASE The matter of the Morriston and Dis- trict Permanent Money Society came on again for consideration at Swansea County Court on Monday. Mr. H. W. Samuel represented the petitioner, and Mr. Clarke Williams the society. Mr. Clarke Williams said their position was that they would prefer an order being made. They were ready to place the whole of the facts before his Honour hnd accept an order, which would mean, in ordinary circumstances, the winding up of the society. PAYMENT OF DEBTS, I His Honour said he thought the society ought to be wound up. Thus all aotionc, against them could be stayed. As thing6 were- at present they would simply be shot at all the time, and they were insol- vent. Mr. Clarke Williams: I think not, sir. His Honour: Oh. yes; you cannot pay your debts. Mr. Williams: We can at the moment, sir. 'I His Honour: Why haven't you paid plaintiff ? 1 Mr. Williams: I don't know that we |I could when the action was taken. I His, Honour: There. are. others, and if you pay others will suffer. 1* INCOME TAX. I Mr. samuel handed up a notice that; income tax had not been paid. I His Honour: I am not very much im- pressed by the non-payment of income tax. (Laughter.) But I am impressed that they cannot pay you and the other members of the society. If this money is paid now, somebody will get undue pre- ference. Mr. Clarke Williams said the position was rapidly improving. They had money in hand now to pay off all prior share- holders, and have 9,25 in hand. Their position was improving by S120 per month. WINDING-UP ORDER. I lits Honour said that if the Society were wound up, the liquidator would get in the money, and debts would be paid rateably. The Official I Receiver would become liquidator in accord with the usual cus- tom .unless another liquidator were ap- pointed An order for winding up was made by consent.
VICAR'S INCOME. I Only X100 for Food and I Clothing. In his parish magazine the Rev. J .j Prank Summers, M.A., vicar of St. John the Baptist Church, Newport, says if he ( were entirely dependent upon the in- come of the living his family and him- self would not only go bootless, but be < almost entirely without food. TLttc in- come of the living is 2250 a yM and a house. He shows the following items which had to come out of the £250 last year ge. d. Income-tax on living and vic.trage 46 17 6 Inhabited house duty. 2 16 3 Insurance of vicarage 1 10 0 Bates 30 16 1 One servant, wages. & board 64 0 0 Coal 20 0 0 Electric light. 14 2 8 Laundry 26 0 0 IS II; 0 Garden 2 0 0 Total 2223 2 6 Î So that, apart from the Easter offer- ings (this year amounting to £73 So.), he would be left with S36 17s. 6d. to provide himself and family with food, clothing, and all other necessary expense6 for the year. If be had no private income he would get some of his income-tax repaid i to him. But by the time it was, done he I probably would have died of starvation. Mr. Summers says that when the Dises- tablisbui-ent Act is in force tho large and I expensive vicarage house should be sold I and a similar house bought.

SELFRIDGES AND SWANSEA. It has been stated with some amount of assurance in Swansea this week that the great krm of Selfridges had intentions of opening a big store in Swansea. The Cambria Daily Leader sent a telegraphic enqhiry to Mr. Gordon Self- fidge on Tuesday, and in the afternoon we received the following reply:— U We have no plans for doing so at present." Perhaps the at present must be em- phasised in the reading of this telegram.
Thomas Diaries (17), tinplater, and George I Alexander Srpitji (19). labourer, were sum- moned at Swansea on Tuesday for tres- passing on the Great Western Railway, and so exposing themselves to dfcngwr, and were I each fined 10.. <
TO LAST BREATH. SOVIETS TO DEFEND BUDAPEST PARIS, Monday (Received Tuesday). The Hungarian Soviet Government an- nounces in a wireless message of May 3rd that Bela Kun and others ot the People's Conjmissaries are resolved to resist the Rumanians. At a meeting of the Central jsoviets Bela Kun announced that the Hungarian troops were in retreat, and that troops which were well established on the Gomi Bridge had fled, taking with them others who had been fighting loyally. At Budapest, he added, there was sufficient equipment for 15 battalions of workmen. He asked the Soviets whether Budapest was to be abandoned or whether the proletariat was willing to tight to its last breath for the dictator- ship of the Soviets, whereupon those pre- sent raised enthusiastic shouts of We will fight." If the Entente," Bela Kun continued, wants to crush us, and thus bring about the end of Bolshevism, they will only be able to do it for a very short time. The possibility of peace would give us a breathing space. The minority is willing to defend Budapest. The People's Commissary, Haubrich, ''States that 16 battalions have been called I up.for to-morrow, and he proposes that 50 members of the Soviet place them- I lves at th,) head of each battalion. In such-a caee we will move our front, not I at Budapest, but on Theiss." BUDAPEST ENTERED. I PARIS, Monday (Received Tuesday). The Rumanian Press Bureau learns from Vienna that the Rumanian troops have entered Budapest. I ENVOYS AS HOSTAGES. I COPENHAGEN, Tuesday. A Vienna dispatch says that the police investigation into the Hungarian Lega- tion. episode has shown that the Hun- garian envoys, Bolgar and Balant, were carried off by officials and taken to a Franciscan monastery. Both envoys were immediately released by the police. A number of persons have been arrested. GAVE THEMSELVES UP. I Surrender of Hungarian Govern- t I I ment. PARIS, Tuesday. A teJegram from Toulon, says that a Japanese squadron, under Admiral Salo, arrived there from Venice, and confirms the news of the unconditional surrender of the Hungarian Government. A message from Basle says that the Agency Woolf announces that a French torpedo destroyer wpnt up the New Fahr Waiiser as ftlr ae the port of Danzig and there anchored.—Exchange.

I At Swansea County Court Judge Row- land Rowlands gave judgment in the case of Sarah Ann Denziqp, Danvgraig-road, v. .the Engiith Crown Spelter Co., a compen- sation case heard at the last murt. His Honour reached the decision that deceased was suffering from a certain amount of plumbism, but lie also agreed with Dr. Lancaster that plumbism was .not the dause of death. A pos-t mortem by Dr. G. Arbour Stephens had revealed in- flammation of the lungs and old pleurisy, and that the cause f death was pleuro- pneumonia. He. therefore; found in favour of res- pondent With the usual coets.

I THE STRIKES. I j Tinplate Trouble. I I EFFORTS TO SETTLE. I I The rtrile amongst th-s annealers at "Janelly has caused the cessation of opera- tions at all the tinplate work6; with the result that some thousands of people are idle. The annealers have decided to take no further action until they have been addressed by their leaders. Last week their leaders advised them to remain at work pending the decision of the Indue- trial Council regarding tfieir claim, but this advice was not accepted. It will be interesting to watch develop- ments, as the decision of the men amounts to an indication to their leaders to address them once more. I THE POSITION AT SWANSEA. I I At Swansea the trouble has, fortunately, I not extended beyond the Cwmbwrla and I Cwmfelin Works, whose annealers are I out in sympathy with the Llanelly men I in consequence mainly of their works be- longing to the same owners as two of the I principal ones at Llanelly. EFFORTS TO SETTLE. t The Leader learns that efforts will be made by both the unions involved— the General Workers' (Mr. Victor Morgan) and the tinplate section of the Dockers' Union (Mr. W. Pugh)—to in- duce the men to return to work. The conference was a joint one between both these sedion6, and the minority of 19 votes, which refuses to accept the deci- sio of the majority of 29 to agree to the owners' terms, comprises the Llanelly men. IMPOSSIBLE POSITION. I How impossible the position is can best bt. shown by the statement that even if some of the Llanelly works, pushed for output, felt like conceding the men's de- mands, they could not do 80, because they are bound by the decision of the majority of the ownors. By competent observers it is regarded aa a great pity that this action should now have been taktn when the first meet- ing of the new Industrial Council, with its promise of admirable facilities for amicably settling all possible grievances, is fast approaching. FIREMAN OR DRIVER. Llanelly Galvanising Works Trouble. The settlement of the strike at the Well- field Galvanising Works, Llanelly, will probably be arrived at in a day or two. The trouble aroeo over the, reinstate- ment of an ex-iireman who, before joining the colours was temporarily engaged as a driver. Since his demobilisation the man r had been offered his old position as fireman, but this he had declined to ac- cept, his contention being that he is en- titled to reinstatement as a driver, on the grounds that 6ince he had been on active service, the shifts had been in- creased from two to three. His contention is supported by his fel- low workmen. THE CARGO WORKERS. i No Settlement of Swansea Lock- i out. An informal meeting of the men's re- j presentatives and the Employers' Associa- tion, and at which, it is expected, Mr. Radcliffe, from the Investigating. Depart- ment of the Ministry of Labour, will be held at the Bush Hotel some time this (Tuesday) afternoon. THE COAL-TRIMMERS. I I South Wales Demand for 20 per cent Increase. The coal trimmers at South "Wales ports have put forward a leimuid for 40 per cent. increase in wages It ik net tong since they received 20 per .nt advance upon total earnings, so that at I the present time they are getting 116 1 ?sr cent, above the?r pre-war wages, he matter will come before the South Wales Central Trimming Board at a I mcetmg at Carditf to-day-, when other questions concerning their pooling schemes will be discussed Representatives of Admiralty contrac- tors held a meeting Festerday, and it is undeistood that they are strongly op- posed to the coal trimmers' pooling scheme, on the ground that the coal trimmers would not. under the scheme, remain directly in the employment of firms. PIT EXAMINERS. I Coalawners and the Recent I 1. Notices. At a joint meeting or representatives of the South Wales Coalowners and the Colliery Examiners' Association held at Cardiff on Monday reference was made by the owners to the question of the members of the Examiners' Association having tendered notices simultaneously with the miners in March last, this pro- cedure being contrary to the terms of the agreement with the examiners. Mr. Finiay A. Gibson, the coalowners' secretary .in his official report, stated that the examiners admitted that the notices had been tendered without suffi- cient consideration, and thev gave the owners an assurance that in future they would abide by the terms of the agree- ment The question of the re-instatement of a fireman was referred for investigation to Mr. W. Johuson and Mr. Tom Mor- gan. COLLIERY CLERKS. I A joint'conference of the representa- tives of th j South Wales coalowners and of the National union of Clerks was held at.Car,diff on,.Nionday, when the owners intimated that the Coalowners' Associa- tion had decided to set up a joint board to deal with the wages of derb em- ployed at the collieries. A sub-committee was appointed to prepare the agreement establishing the board, and it was understood that a further meeting would be held shortly. AMONG THEMSELVES. I Trouble has arisen between two sections of the workmen at Gleision Colliery, Tar- rtihi, over the election of a checkweigher, and the result was a stoppage on Mon- day, while the contending sections of workmen are trying to compromise their1 differences. 1
