GERMANS IN A HURRY. GOUNTER-PROPOSALS Due Thursday Afternoon. PARIS, Tuesday. The Council of Four yesterday examined Dr. Renner's courteously worded Note of protest against the delay in communica- ting the peace tenus' to the Austrian Dr-ipgation. The Council is desirious of futisfying. as far as possible, the legiti- mate demand of the Austrians, so that it likely that the terms may be delivered .,L,out the end of the week, at any rate in part, but no definite decision was re- ceived regarding the German counter-pro- IDOSalg. WITHIN THE TIME LIMIT. I It is anticipated, in French Conference circles, that Count Brockdorff-Rantzau will communicate these this evening, and consequently within the time limit fixco by the Allies, which expires at three o'clock on Thursday. The German printing plant, which ar- rived at Versailles on Sunday, has been v-orking day and night, to finish the text of the German document, which will be delivered to the Conference in three lan- guages—English, French and German. It is stated in French diplomatic circles that, contrary to what had. been announced, the Council of Four did not yesterday discuss the question of Admiral Koitchak's Government, as the Council are awaiting the results of the inquiry into the subject before according its offi- cial sanction. THE BLOCKADE OF HUNGARY. I Finally the Council ratified the impor- tant measure of the Supreme Economic Council which raised the blockade of Hungary about two months ago, and then imposed it again upon the advent of Bela Kun's Communistic Government. This blockade will be maintained until the stable government has been' set up in Hungary, in accordance with the freely emphasised will of the people.
H.R.H. I I ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE VISIT. The general principle6 of the arrange- ment for the Prince of Wales' visit to Swansea on June 27th were considered and decided on in camera by the Parlia- mentary Committee on Monday, Mr. Dd. Williams, St. Thomas (vice-chairman) presiding. The arrangement, it was stated, is that (he Princo will arrive in Swansea shortly before 11 a.m., visit the docks, and a works to be decided on, be entertained at a small informal luncheon at the Guildhall, and leave Swansea for London at 3.25 p.m., in consequence of a very im- portal engagement in town next morn- ing. It as emphasised that it was the de- eire of the Prince that the arrangements should be as informal as possible, and that in consequence the number of in- vitations to the lunch would be strictly limited. Arrangements were made for the Council's representation at this function. The question of presenting the freedom of the borough was also discussed, but in view of the little time available, and H.R.H.'s express desire for informality, it was decided not to include this in the pro- gramme. Detailed arrangements were left with the Mayor. It is probable that the luncheon invi- tations will not exceed 50, and that the Council's representation will be on the basis of each section selecting a definite number. It can be taken for granted, of course, that the town will do all that is necessary in the matter of decorations.
KING'S DOCK JETTY. J Lease Recommended by I Harbour Trust. We Are informed that the management of the Swansea Harbour Trust have recommended the granting of a lemse of a jet-ty at the King's Dock to Messrs. T. W. Ward, the well known shipbreaiers. for shopbreaking purposes. The application is for a term of 99 years.
FOOTPRINT CLUE. I I Swansea Boy Who Stepped I on a Newspaper. .U Swansea Juvenil Court on Tu",? j day, three boys and a girl were charged j ith breaking and en?-ring Mr. Ham* eon's Fruit Stores, Strand, 6wances, stealing a quantity of grapes, nuts and orangee. Detective O'Brien stated that he ex- amined one of the defendant's boot6 and found it to be identical with a footprint on a newspaper on a table in Mr. Har- rison's office. When he visited the defen- dants' homes the parents were very hostile, and would not allow the children to be taken to the Police Station. There were previous convictions against the hovlS. One of the defendants was ordered to a reformatory until 18 years of age, two others to an industrial school until 16 years of age, and the parent of the little girl was bound over to see that the child was of good behaviour.
PONTARDAWE MAN. I Foreman at World's Largest Tin. I works. Bearding the competition for orders between the American and Welsh tinplate manufacturers, it is interesting to men- tion that at the Chenango Tinplate Mills at Newcastle, U.S.A., the largest in the world, the output last year was over three million boxes, while the average output per week this year is 72,000 boxes. There are 68 tin pots in use at the works .at present. The superintendent of the finisV-ng department is Mr. Llewellyn Jones, who was formerly a foreman at Messrs. Gil- fofrtson's, Pontardawe.

-== AMIR'S PLOT I PEACE OFFER-TRICK TO CAIN TIME All explanation was issued by the India Offico on Monday night respecting the letter from the Afghan Commander-in- Chief to the Political Agent for the Khyber. The letter accused the British of beginning an unlawful wa.r," and said that in consequence of the receipt by the Amir of a communication from the Vice- roy the writer had been ordered to sus- pend war. This insolent message," says the Gov- ernment of India was obviously designed to gain time. The Amir's reply to the Viceroy's communication has now been received. It is defiant in tone, and leaves no doubt as to Amanullah's personal com- I plicity in the attack on the Indian frontier.
I LLANSAMLET WELCOME. I At Seion Vestry, Llansamlet, a social in I honour of the demobilised members was presided over by Mr. Wm. John. During I' the evening Treasury notes were presented by Mr. John Thomas.
TINPLATE CRISIS. I t .——— 8- I Prospects of Negotiations. I (BY OUR TRADE CORRESPONDENT!. I The present week will undoubtedly be reckoned one of the most momentous in I the history of the second staple industr. of South Wales and its Industrial Coun- cil. The meeting fixed for Friday next is the iiret meeting of the new Industrial Council, which will deal with wage claims on precisely similar line6 to that I of the defunct Tinplate Trade Concilia- tion Board. I As stated in yesterday's iseue, the trade j is threatened just at present with serious I «x>n\r*jtfrom even in our, home markets which makers find difficult j to cope with, even with their preeeni I wage bill. 134 CLAIMS. I I Against this we and lat claims on the employes side to be discussed, each oi which will mean a large or small addi tion to the cost of placing a finished box of tinplates on the market in competition with that. of our competitors. It should be stated that advances granted in war bonuses and shortened hours during re- cent years have increased the cost of pro- duction to the Welsh maker by at. least 3s. per box, that is from 2s. 6d. to 5s. 6d. DIFFICULTY IN CARRYING ON. Discussing the position with a promin- ent employer to-day, I am inforemo that at present there is a decided difficulty in keeping their works going, ;1." the men, especially the younger section, find better .conditions outside, and ht anticipates a great exodus from the trnd-r during the summer months. This is a serious outlook, especially for works pos- sessing modern plant and up-to-date machinery. Both employers and workmen will hole' meetings during the week to discuss the various proposals from each side, and it is to be hoped that with a generous use of the tact, sound common oon6t". and the mutual forbearance tinplate people are g,enera,ily accredited with, the problems facing them this week will be overoomc successfully.

HAFOD TRAGEDY BOOTMAKER FOUND WITH THROATCUT I News of yet another Swansea tragedy comes from Neath-road, Hafod, the victim being a bootmaker named John Grandon. For many years Grandon has carried on business in the north end of the town, but he had been unwell of late. He resided in Neath-road, about two doors from the Hafod Inn. On Monday morning he got up and complained to his wife of feeling very unwell, remarking that his brain was on fire. About 9 o'clock he went to the back yard and did not return, so that his wife, becoming alarmed, called in a neighbour named John Davies, who went into a shed in the back yard to make a gruesome dis- covery. „ Grandon was found with his throat cut, near by being a cobbler's knife, with which he had inflicted the wound. Dr. Powell was immediately sent fbr, but the man was beyond medical aid.
COAL INQUIRY. DISTRIBUTION, SALARIES, HOUSING LONDON, Tuesday. The Coal Commission resumed to-day at Westminster, Mr. Justice Sankey pre- siding. Sir Leo Money asked permission to point out that the evidence given be- fore the Commission by Mr. Harold Cox had been printed in pamphlet form- either by Mr. Cox or somebody els,witb oertain additions and corrections. Then he quoted the report of a committee of which he (the speaker) and Mr. J. H. Thomas were members, and did it as if they had approved. It seemed very unfair .to publish evi- dence given before the Coal Commission and add things taken from another com- mittee report, and to represent a Commis- sioner as agreeing with the report when, as a matter of fact, the report as a whole was only signed by the members becauee it was war time. DISTRIBUTION SCHEME. Mr. J. Gibson, a Seotch colliery man- ager, who gave evidence, considered that the Government might follow the example of the oo-operative movement and tackle the distribution problem before attempt- ing the nationalisation of the productive process. Witness suggested a scheme under which each colliery would be a separate ooonomie entity. When the great increases took place dur- ing the war, frequently the miner w paid more money than the manager. MANAGER'S CLAIMS. ) The questions at issue at present were I claims by the Scottish managers for (I) a minmium salary of £ -500; (2) a super- annuation scheme; and (3) an increase of £100 on the present war wage of J6125. These questions were likely to be amio- ably settled. HOUSING. I With reference to housing, Mr. Gibson said his association were of opinion that it was not the business of coalowners to house the miners any more than it was the business of the postal authorities to house the postmen. WELSH SURVEYORS. Mr. Austin Hughes, head surveyor of I the Powell Duffrvn Steam Coal Co., I Ltd., submitted a precis showing the standard of education, training, and ex- perience required to produce an efficient mine surveyor. The comparisons, paid witness, showed the present inadequate j remuneration of a certified mine sur- veyor. The foUowing scale was requested for immediate adoption: L300 first year's certificated service, afterwards ,£26 an- nual increment until a maximum of MM j be reached. A minimum salary of S600 for head surveyors.
MILK PRICES. | I Food Control Committee's j Decision Re-affirmed. The Swansea Food Control Committee. further discussed the milk prices for the forthcoming four months at a meeting on j Jlbndav evening. Air. David Griffiths pre- sided, and Mr. Walters Williams, of the Divisional Office of the Ministry of Food, repeated his arguments for an average of 2s. 7d. peT gallon, which would bring Swansea into line with other big Welsh authorities. The committee, however, found no suf- ficient reason for increasing the average, which is at present 2s. 6d., and re-affirmed their previous decision. The prices now proposed are: June and July, 2s. 4d. per gallon; August and September, 3s. 8d. per gallon. It should be added that the Food Con- I troller in London has the last word in the I matter. < — I
i NEATH WAR TANK. I The war tan-k-, the gift of the War I Office to the Neath War Savings Com- mittee, has arrived at Neath, but will not be removed to its permanent position in the Victoria Gardens until the 7th of June, on which occasion there will be a public demonstration.
NEATH MYSTERY. I The post-mortem on the body of the female child that was, found on the canal bank on Sunday afternoon has revealed the fact that the dhild had a separate existence. The inquest will be held on Tuesday evening. The police are still making investiga- tions.
BURIAL OF EX-SERVICEMEN. I The N.F.D. and D.S.S. has buried two ex-Servicemen during the past week-end, both of whom had served with distinction in H.M. Forces. Comrade Thomas Fisher, 1, Albert-row, Swansea, died suddenly on Saturday, May 17th. Ho served through the Egyptian campaign (1882-6), and won the Egyptian Star, etc. An application was made to the Federa- tion for burial, and they carried out all I the arrangements. Pte. F. Parsons, late 6tli Welsh Regi- ment, was buried with full military j honours yesterday by his comrades of the I i ^deration. j t

THE COLOURS. SWANSEA BATTALION'S MARCH OF TRIUMPH On Monday next the Colours of the -Swansea Battalion will be brought baok to the town and deposited at the Guildhall. This is the laconic message which an- nounces the advent of a great day in the history of the Battalion. It is a difficult task adequately to impress our minds the magnitude of the debt we owe to this gal- lant body, Swansea's Own. Those who will return on Monday are but a remnant of that wonderfully happy band that left these shores at the end of 1915. CIVIC RECEPTION. They will be joined at the station by as I large a muster of ex-members of the bat- talion as can be gathered together, and, headed by the Bit Badge" Band, the party will march to the Guildhall, where the M'ayor (Councillor W. H. Miles) will greet them in the name of Abertawe. i The details connected with the home- coming have not yet been definitely fixed, j but. it i6 intended to accord the batta-lion I I a right royal welcome. < 'MEETING OF SWANSEA BATTALION I MEN. We are asked to state that a meeting I iof ex-Syruizea Battalion inbu will be heki at Mond Buildings on Friday evening at 7.30, and an earnest appeal is made for a full muster, in order that the formation of th-e receiving party can be arranged. We feel sure that the town will give the lberoes the warm welcome they deserve, j
A j-LB. EGG. f Something Big in the Fowl I Line. I I To enjoy an egg. it is necessary to take a pinch of salt. And it is equally neces- ) sary to accept EIOlue of the egg stories which have appeared from time to time j in the Town Talk column with the pro- verhial pinch. But seeing is believing j they say. Not that anyone doubted the veracity of our correspondent, whose hen lays. such eggs-traordinary egglS. How- ever, we venture to produce the picture showing the hen, one of the productions, and the owner. The egg is I inches long, and 7J inches in circumference. And it weighed exactly a quarter of a pound. Like the Daily Leader, thia hen has a l^g'j ro* tation. BRENTRY HOMES.. Its Future Discussed by Swansea Parliamentary Committee. The future of Brentry Home was re-1 ferred to at Monday's meeting of the J Swansea Parliamentary Committee. Aid. W. Owen said the trustees had decided to continue the present institution, to bor- row money for repairs, and to add 80 beds to those there at present, in order to I make provision for mentally defectives. Swansea had the right to twelve beds, and would have to make no further capital contribution. In reply to Mr. F. J. Parker, the Town Clerk said an obligation was placed upon the Council to put the Mental Deficiency Act into operation. The scheme was approved.
FISH WHARF FIRE. I A fire broke out at the Fish Wharf, South Dock, Swansea, on Monday even- ing. A number of empty fish boxes were blazing- freely, hut the fire was got under by the brigade. The damage is estimated at about SIM.

THOUSANDS IDLE. I An industrial dispute in South Staf- ¡ fordshire began to-day, 'where, following a decision of the previous night, the whole of the colliery winding enginemen, -are- men, and mechanics in the employ of the Earl of Dudley, struck work. Ten col- lieries are directly affected, and some I thousands of miners are idle. The Pens- I nett Railway, owned 'by his lordship, which carries fuel to the big iron and steel works blast furnaces and brick manufac- turers, is also idle. The strikers demand the full reinstatement of a winding engine- man, who is alleged to have been wrong- fully dismissed. HAWKER IN- EDINBURGH. I EDINBURGH, Tuesday. 1:r.

Grieve managed to escape the eager attentions of the emati, a.nd got to the hotel practically unnoticed. When the train left for Lon- don, there was another enthusiastic demonstration.

WHY FRENCH REVOLTED. ♦ Amazing Munitions I Revelations. TRAGEDY OF FESTUBERT Lord French in the Daily Telegraph to-day deals with the shortage of muni- tiuns in 1314 and 1915. He says when per- sonal appeals to Kitchener and Cabine:, Ministers failed, he gave interviews to tht Press and authorised public men who visited him to urge the need. The ston he took in May, 1915, he was conscioua, meant the overthrow of the Government and the end of his career in France. Lord French also says that whilst he was a strong advocate of high explosive shell, the Ordnance Board was not m favour of it. On January 19th, he says, the War Offi(-c declined to work up to more than twenty rounds per day, and refused the request for 50 per cent. high explosives—" an amazing attitude." The battle of Neuve Chapelle had to b4: broken off after three days' fighting for want of ammunition. Lord French says when he read Mr. Asquith's famous Newcastle speech, afte- all his public and private appeals,-he lost any hope of receiving help from the Gov- ernment as then constituted. Of the battle of Feetubert, Lord French sans the absence of sufficient artillery support doubled and trebled our losses o.' men. Thereupon he decided to give all the requisite evidence to Col. Repington. and sent his secretary to England to lcy the proofs before Mr. Lloyd George, Mr. Balfour, and Mr. Bonar Law. A Govern- ment crisis followed, and the Coalition Ministry was formed. For his work on munitions we owe Un- measured gratitude to Mr. Lloyd George," he says
