THE FORESHORE. DUKE OF BEAUFORT PREPARED TO SEll. Speaking at the Duke of Beaufort's Court Leet luncheon at Swansea on Mon- day, Mr. Hobbs, replying to a toast, re- ferred to the courtesy attending all the deliberations he had had with the Town Clerk and the Corporation officials. Any- thing he could do to forward any improve- ment in Swansea. he would do as the agent of the Duke. He was confident that it was the desire of the Duke to further the interests of the town and port. It was quite possible for the Corporation to make an excellent use of the foreshore between Swansea Pier and Mumbles. There could be reclaimed more than one hundred acres by enclos- ing that portion. There were tons and tons of &lag at Landore, and the people concerned would pay any amount of money to be allowed to tip that slag and the wastethe foreshore. The railway lines ran right down to the sea, and it would be comparatively easy to arrange to tip the waste there. PREPARED TO SELL. The Duko of Beaufort was prepared to sell the foreshore, and, in fact, he was prepared to do anything to improve Swan- sea both as a town and as a port. It was possible to make Swansea Bay the tinest bay in the Kingdom beyond all doubt. The people who were willing to pay for tipping slag there would also be prepared to hell) to imnrove the DEVELOPING MUMBLES. L He, personally, was nopeiut tnac llP would live long enough to see the Mumbles developed into a first-rato seaside rescfrt. There 'wa? a most magnificent stretch of co?st line, and it was for Swansea to take her opportunity. (Applause.)
,BUSINESS AS USUAL. Swansea Docks Activity Resumed. After five weeks inactivity at the Swan- sea docks by reason of the lock-out, the men resumed operations on Monday. Everything is proceeding apace, and in a few days the docks will assume their former normality.
MUSTARD GAS. Dangerous Drums Removed From Gower Coast. On eeveral occasions 4runis of mustard gas have been washed up at certain points of the Welsh coast. In one or two instan- ces the result of meddling with them has been very serious » Warning has been ifefned by the ( Ad- miralty pointing out the dap-gvr to pel- sons tampeu ng or meddling with any of theea drums. All the drums have now"been collected and removed by men of the United States Navy, who used rubber gloves and maks. The drums will be taken out to sea and euTlk in deep water.
210 MILK FINE. At Swansea on Monday Llewellyn Bevies (29) was summoned for selling milk 16 per cent, deficient in butter fat, and fined £10. The defence put forward by Mr. Henry Tliompsan was that the milk was sold as it was received.
UNREAD BIBLES. In the course of his sermon at New Siloh, Landore, on Sunday night, the Rev. W. James (Ebenezer) said that the tendency of the age was to drift away from the Bible. Much had been said with regard to this subject, and he felt there was a great deal of truth in the allegation. There were more Bibles in Welsh homes to-day than there had ever been, but it was a regrettable fact that at the same time there was far less Bible reading. The nation was drifting. WESLEY CHAPEL. In a simple, beautiful programme on Sunday afternoon, Swansea Wesley child ren's service celebrated its first anniver- sary. The children who individually contribu- ted by reading, singing prayers and solos and reciting Evelyn Thomas, Clifford Lewis, Cissie McVeigh, Ethel Finch, May Taylor and Olwen Mustan. Mr. Trevor J. Hurn presided, and tht Rev. W..T. Morgan gave a very appro- priate address.

HAWKER ON THE WAY. HAWKER ON THE WAY. British Airman's Daring Flight U.S. SEAPLANE AT AZORES Interest in the flight across the Atlantic has been stimulated this morning by the news that Mr. Hawker in his Sop wit h. left St. John's last evening at 6.48 p.m. British time. Mr. Raynham had the mis fortune to wreck his Martineyde in try- ing to rise. Of the three American Navy seaplanes which started from Trepaeeey Bay for the Azores on Friday only one-- the NC4 (Commander Read) reached the island. N.C. 1 (Commander JBuIlinger) came down in the fog 200 miles north of its destination, and N.C. 3 (Commander Tow era, leader of the expedition) hae lost her way. Nothing has been heard of her since early Saturday morning, an3 deGtroyen; are gcourinf the seas in search. The crew of the N.C. 1 have been res cued by a steamer and the machine iteeif towed to llorta. The N.C. 4's proper destination had a replenishing base in Ponta Dalgada, the largest town of the Azores. He will fly thence when weather permits and then proceed on the next stage of 1,100 miles to Lisbon. I I DISTANCES. < Miles.

St. John's Sunday.—The long-awaited start for the Atlantic flight by British airmen took place this afternoon, Mr. Hawker's Sopwith machine getting off at 3 o'clock local time, or 5.51 p.m. Green- wich time. Great crowds witnessed the departure of the aeroplaise. Thousands of people were assembled for the ascent of the Martinsyde machine at Quidividi, which is quite near St. John's, and is easily reached on foot or by vehicle, while small gatherings of more closely interested observers watched the start of the Sop- with machine from Mount Pearl, six miles west of the city. The weather was favourable, cold, clear and sunny, with cloudless skies, and the Sopwith machine made an extremely ttatisfactory beginning, flying eastwards over the city and past the Quidividi ground, whore she signalled farewell to the rival airmen. Then, flying about 2,000 feet above the sea, she crossed the range of hills en- circling the town, and then flew out over the Atlantis, 3.35 p.m.—The signalman at the marine look-out on the hills above St. John's reports that the Sopwith machine is now out of sight. One is flying in a south- easterly direction, making for Ireland, about 8,000 feet up. and is making about SO miles an hour. Hawker dropped the wheels of his machine just before leaving land.- lleuter. A "Daily Mail" telegram states that Hawker started at 6.40 p.m. (British summer time). I MARTINSYDE WRECKED. I St. John's, Sunday.—The Martmsyde machine has been smashed in atttempting to start and is a total wreck. St. John's, 4.15"p.m.—In a third attempt to rise by racing in a westerly direction along the Quidividi ground the Martin-l eyde machme dug her nose in the earth and wrecked her engines. Mr.' Raynham and Captain Morgan es- caped with but slight injuries. Several airmen present had previously expressed doubts as to the ability of the aeroplane to rise with such heavy weights as she carried, ag the wind was str6ng and side- wise. I The presumption is that she was canted | over by the wind, and her equilibrium being disturbed, struck the ground agfu) 60 í wrecked herpelf.

I Washington, Sunday.—According to a telegram from Horta (Azores), Lieut.-Com- mander Read, of the United States sea- plane N .CA. says that his machine flew over the Atlantic at an average speed of 90 miles per liour, making the journey in 13 hours 18 minutes. The three American seaplanes, for a considerable time after leaving Trepassey, flew close together. Finally the N.C.4 drew away. During the early part of the flight the seaplanes were favoured by moonlight. The weather, too, was good until within 200 miles of Corvo Island, when they began to encounter fog. The N.C.4 was in per- fect condition, and there was no mishap or any untoward occurrence. Most of the flight was made at an altitude of 3,000ft., until the mist compelled the seaplane to descend Lieut.-Commander Read, the telegram adds, looked fit, as did the entire crew. None of them had slept, but had eaten sandwiches as they sat. Three steamers were seen during the flight.- llenter. HAWKER'S RIVAL SURPRISED j ST. JOHN'S (Newfoundland), Monday. Nothing has been heard of Mr. Hawker since be started. It was not until Mr. Rnynham heard the roar of Mr. Hawker's machine, and saw him drop his under- carriage, that he realised that the Aus- traliall was on his way. The injuries sustained by Mr. Raynham and Capt. Morgan in the accident to their machine are not serious. Mr. Hawker started in face of weather conditions which he characterised as not yet favourable, but possible. CREW OF N.C.3 SAFE. The American naval headquarters in London have received a message to lie effect that the crew of the seaplane N.C.3 are safe on board the U.S.S. Columbia. No mention is made of the locality. THE WEATHER CONDITIONS. i The Air Ministry reports that the con ditions are still far from favourable for the direct flight. Landing conditions in Ireland, however, are at present favour- able. The conditions have improved some- what at the Azores, reports showing a partially clouded sky with fresh westerly winds. i CONFIDENT OF SUCCESS. ST. JOHN'S, Monday. Mr. Hawker considered weight of the utmost importance, and lifting Com- mander Grieve's bag before starting, he inquired solicitously whether he could not dispense with, his pyjamas, declaring he would have a long sleep at the end of the trip. The airmen were quite calm, and boarded the craft without the slightest nervousness. Mr. Hawker expressed confidence in lifs navigator and engines. If forced into the sea they have little hope of rescue. Both wore watertight suits to keep them afloat many hours.

RolutioI15 o? protests agail the I Neath Town Council granting tbr u..tf I the Gwyn Hall for the boxing tournament were submitted and passed in some of the Nonconformist churches of Neath on Sunday. Seen by our representative, the Rev. W. Degwall Thomas, pastor of Orchard-place Baptist Church, said if the representa- tives of the Free Churches thought there was something wrong with boxing the best weapon they could use was to move among the boxing fraternity and try to purify it. He did not see so much harm in boxing as he did in dancing. If the Council could let the Gwyn Hall for dancing they could let the hall for box- ing without a blush.

NO INCOME TAX. Miners Say They Won't Pay! I TO-DAY'S DECISION. I (Special to the Leader." ( CARDIFF, Monday. A special conference of delegates con- vened by the South Wales .Miners Federa- tion was held at Cardiff to-day. Two hundred and seventy-six delegates repre- sented 164,811 miners. The Chairman (the Right Hon.* W.. Brace) pointed out that the principal items were the recommendations oL the Executive concerning income tax and the question of increasing the compensation for accidents. With regard to income tax, in his opinion that tax was far better without indirect taxation on foodstuffs, but it was a fair demand that the exemp- tion should be raised to E250. Mr. Yernon Hartshorn, M.P., mored the following resolution: "That, having regard to the refusal of the Government to accept the proposal of the Labour Party to raise the income tax payment to S250 per annum, the members of the Federation refuse to pay their income tax upon the present basis from the 5th April. 1919, and ,call upon the Miners' Federation to take similar action." After some discussion, the resolution was carried.

PREMIER AND 38TH. DIVISION, LLOYD GEORGE'S SPEECH IN PAMS The remnants of the 38th Division are still very much to the tore in France. Thece is a strong symphony orchestra in connection with the divicion, and kot week it was taken to l'äris by Lieufc.-Col. I). Brock Williams, 'Qf Killay Houee. They played at the British Jbeave Club on the Saturday and Sunday, and on the Monday a■t the Hotel Majestic, where Mr. Hughes, he Australian Premier, was amongst the audience. On the Tuesday they gave a concert at the Palais de Orlace, a huge building used oy the American Leave Club, wnere a twelvwitem programme included lraü- nlerei (Schumann), an andante by Greig, Suppe's Poet and Peasant," Tscukowsy's Casse Noisette suite, and to Chopin nocturne (violin solo). The event was the more memorable be- cause of the presence of Mr. Lloyd George, who came along at the end and spoke for ten minutes. The speech has rot been reported in the British Press, but we understand that first of all the Premier -*$|x>ke on the formation of the 38tlj (Welsh) Division, and of his con- nection with it, and dwelt on its wonder- ful work in France. Secondly he expressed pleasure at meeting the Americans, and enlarged on the Lelp they gave in the gaining of a sterR but just peace, and, lastly, spoke with great emotion of the sufferings France has endured in the war. It was arranged that Lieut.-Col. Brock Williams should later in the week be Mr. Lloyd George's guide over thef,cene of ) the last advance of the Welsh Division ) írQm the Ancre.
