"SECRET DOCUMENTS."j ) The London Daily News ap I pears glad to be publicly perturbed over alie latest revelation af tht* to Daily Herald," which on Tues- day published what it described as a teeret dtx-uir.ent issued in the Air Ministry Weekly Orders..111 tbes3 orders, says the Daily j Kews," there are ela.borate instru3- abotit tl,.e use cr military j (presumably the air force) in connec- | tior. with riots. From the various pamgraphs our contemporary takes the following: 985. It is undesirable that firing I sloufd take place over the heads of the rioters, or that blank should be used. ani gœ on to say that it can only read this instruction in one We hope we are mistaken; bu-, in the light of the symptoms to j "'hioh we have referred, and with the knowledge of the levity and folly which are now dominant m public liie it is urgent that the mawr should be thoroughly probed. axe also glad to be able to say that the matter has been thoroughly 1 probed; and the result is the dis- covery of a mare's nest. The co,7c,r y c i a iyi,, 1 Iornlng Pest" has done more chin express hopes and fears; it has done its own probing. It finds that the matter in the case is from Air Ministry Weekly Orders, and Orders Nos. 961, 962, and 9(55 are j quoted, giving instructions as to the action of troops in the case of riot. Only malice against the law -or ex- inm-e ignorance can be the reason I for describing these as secret or as a la.test example of mili- tirism. They are as old as the Common Law of England, and the mailer of them has been threshed out often, the most recent OC'1. sions being before a Select Com- mittee on Employment of Military in case of Disturbance, in lOOfj, j and, previously to that, before a Select Committee in 1893-4. In structions to the military on the subject of riots are founded largely on the reports of those two Parlia- mentary Committees. (The Air Force, being a recent creation, has to have the existing military law proclaimed to it). There is nothing either secret or new in the orders quoted. -—————. With regard to the revelations" I about firing, to show how new," ["secret." and "militarist" they are, references is made to Parlia- mentary Paper 1908 H.C. 236, I which gives the evidence of the I Right Hon. R. B. Haldane, then t Secretary of State for War (now (Lord Haldane), before a SeleJt Committee on Employment of Military in Cases of Disturbance." Mr .Devlin—Do not you think it de- sirable to use blank cartridge first of r all after the Riot Act is read? Mr. Haldano-I think it is most un- j lesir&ble, because the mob get it into their minds that yon have nothing but blank cartridge, and they come on and get killed. The military authorities say We are here, and if we use our firearms it is to kill. That is whv wa demur at being called out except in the last and most perilous necessity. If the mob get the impression we are there with only blank cartridge, the result will he bloodshed galore. Ignorant readers of the Daily Herald may be misled into believ- ing that something secret, new, and terrible has been formulated to use the military in caso of riots. The truth is, as the Morning Poot" declares, that the law on the sub- ject is of very old standing, and provides better safeguards against rash use of military force to sup-1 press disorder than exist in any; I other part of the world. We give the matter prominence I here because, in the local election campaign against the National Gov- ernment, which commences next. Monday, this revelation" is sure to be used as a proof of the perfidy or the Coalition against the workers; and it i lust as well that the citi- zens cf Swansea should know tin exact truth.
SWANSEA AND THE JOY I LOAN. Next week, we take it, Swansea j will settle seriously to the task of I seeing what it can do for the Vh- j tory Loan: it has much to divel its mind this week; and -it is be.-s I' to have a clear start. We cannot use words that are too grave to emphasise the importance of th.!> loan. It may be difficult to realise II ¡ that the taking up of the loan is not- I less a duty now than at the height of the war. The greatest service that could be rendered the country at this moment is to free it from short- term indebtedness. The effects, as one authority has said, would be felt immediately in every field of I II daily life- Industry an d commerce II would revive, as they cannot while this weight of obligation bangs over 1 the market; prices would fall; liv- ing would be cheaper, and a V-S amount of unrest would be quelled. All these results would follow auto- matically on a huge subscription. The appeal then is to every class, and is a call not 1?5 to those who can only buy War Savings Certi?- cates than to those who can sub scribe their millions.
JOY LOAN. I I i I I Swansea Business Men's: i I Views. 1 J Following Wednesday's meeting of the j Swansea Chamber of Commerce, a meet- 1 ing in support of the new War Loan was j held. The president of the chamber (Mr. Arthur Andrews) occupied the chair, supported by the Mavo-r (Councillor W. H. Miles). A letter was read from Sir Robert Kinsley urging the Chambers of Com- j merce to assist in the loan. The public had been invited, and the Chairman said he was glad to t<ec jolr. C. C. Vivian and Mr. C. J. G. ash Leibrandt present. We weie near peace, but were left A,ii i a hugo debt. TUB present loan would b.J ) a difficult one to iloat. Tho enthusiasm that had prevailed during the war uj being followed by the inevitable lassitude, The terms of the Icun were very attrac- tive, and in some financial circles were looked upon as too generous. Our duty was to lift the overwhelming debt, and j to convcrt short date liabilities -into lony date onoif. Now that the war was over, j he hop-cfui that extravagances would be much curtailed, it they did not dis- appear. There was no investment that offered such a yield, compatible with safety. THE MAYOR. i The Mayor appealed for the lean first on patriotic lines. The response to every j war appeal of every description had been J uiagniiicent, and by no section had it j been more ready tlian on the part of members of the Chambers of Commerce— at Swansea no less than in other parts of the country. The resources of the British iumpire were behind the loan. The Chan- j cellor had eaid there would never be better tcrnig offered. Another reason for support was the necessity for stabilisin., the national finances and commerce. The President moved a resolution in j favour of giving the loan their hearty fcupport, pointing out that unlets the Rational were put on a more satisfactory footing osr trade could not rfof-par. PATRIOTIC DUTY. j Mr. C .C. Vivian, in seconding, said it was a patriotic duty to support this loan. If Swansea could only carry on as in the past. the town would be doing good for itself as well as for the nation. in our sihort leans we were pawning j what was already pawned. They were indebted to the president for the oppor- tunity of showing once more Swansea's patriotism. i Mr W. Turpin (vice-president) said the question was a big one and must be faced in a big way. There were signs cf a slackening of enthusiasm since peace had come within sight. We could not j afford to begin our old quarrels anew. Swansea had raked in twenty millions sterling for war loans, whieh could not be done every day. There was a limit, but we must do what we could. The finances of the country were causing alarm in high places. The problem tf rove us to-uay waa as grave as that cf winning the war. i AMERICAN COMPETITION. Mr. A. W. E. Wynne, ex-president, regretted the absence of Mr. Roger l Beok, chairman of the War Savings s- soeiation, but as a member, he trusted Ii the Chamber of Commerce would sup- I port the appeal. The country ne^dec! all the money she could lay her ba,,s I on. The United States had issu«xi h subsidy of two hundred million pounds as a subsidy for the 5nco'ing} ut «t f I American trade in Europe. America was in a very favourable ifnancial yosi- tion. It was up to all who could to in- i vest in the loan from a national, com- r mercial and indiistrial point oi view. llg I had no doubt the citizens of Swansea j would do all they oould to make the loan I a success. ABSOLUTE NECESSITY. I Mr. W. T. Farr also supported, and alluded to the serious times before the nation's finances. The loan was an ab- solute necessity, and we alr-o had before us serious industrial problems. He felt t sure the loan would roceivo the level- j headed consideration of the nation. j Mr. Trevor Matthews said there was j no stock in the country which would j command a better market than the Founding Loan. It was true they needed money for their businesses, but it was desirable to put all they could into the loan. The new loan's. market- ability made it practically equal to cash. j By investing in it they would be stabilis- ing not only the national finances but the labour position. The resolution was then put and car- ried unanimously.
SHOT IN PANTRY. I —————————————— West Wales Malaria Patient's j Suicide. I Mr. Thomas Walters, coroner, held an irquest on Wednesday on Thomas James Thomas ('!■), stonemason, Park Cwm, Xewchurch, Carmarthen, who was found allot in the pantry. Hannah Thomas, the widowed mother, said the dece-ased, who livod with her, joined the Army in February. 1316, and returned in March lost, having served in Salonika. Owing to bad health he had not been able to work Óncê his return, tie suffered from headache, and for the last ineek- had been very depressed. ) Dr. D. Donzil Harries said a month ago he treated deceased for malaria. He com- plained of sleeplessness, aiid feared the night coming. On being summoned to the place, witness found deceased in the pantry with a one barrel gun by his side, and half his skull blown ofT. Witness had no doubt tho injuries were eelf- infiicied when the man wae not in his right mind. J Th? Coroner r?orded a verdict of ( suicide whilst temporarily insane. I

PRINCE AND CONSTABLE. i One of the members of tho Glamor- gan Constabulary presented to the Prince of Wales during the Rhondda tour was Sergt. Church, of A beravon, who was recently demobilised after four and a half years' service. The Prince chatted genially and was I very interested to know that $erg?ant Church, who wears the $ou6 Atrican Cr b? ? 8 ?ell M ? Mom Mbbos, was in the Grenadiers before he transferred to the newly-formed Weigh Guards. Be also recalled one occasion early in the war Nilien the Prince changed guard at Buckingham Palace. "And a fine young man be is, too," added the police officer when relating the incident, with a fine voice for giv- ing the command." Sergt. Church was photographed while speaking to the Prince.

Let us hope so, anyhow. —!<K The Swansea Transport Co. 's motor trips to the Royal Show at Cardiff have been splendidly patronised. The cry each morning has been like the words of the old song, Jump in the wagon and we'll all take a ride. — o— People in the neighbourhood of tho top end of High-street rubbed their eyes with amazement on Wednesday after- noon. And not without cause. There was a large, staff of mop and boys clean- ing the windows of the G.W.R.

"He, r. if it was the driver who was referred to, was sitting on the box smoking » cigarette and 11 letting the car drive it- self," as the small boy remarked. W. Lovers of Goweriand are sorrv that the Prince has no time to go further afield. They think CasweTl would have been much preferable. But time and tide wait for no man, and the Prince's programme demands that he should catch the 3.30 train back to town. — :y:— A member of our staff who spent some time in the hands of the Huns as a pri- soner of war—and who picked up the language—startled his confreres yester- day by bursting into song in celebra- tion of the German final surrender. The song was the German Hymn of Hate" —: CK — In the past our Royal visitors have left a souvenir of their call in soma change in local place-namero. It ia thus rhat we have our Prince of Wales Dock our King's Dock, King Edward-road, Piid Alexandra-road. The present visit is informal, and there will be no christenings."

The official handbook of the movement, Scouting for Boys," written by Sir Robert Baden Powell, is dedicated, by perm;seioB, to his Royal Highness and his brother, Prince Albert. No wonder the boys are in high feather. -0:- It hag fallen to the lot of Mr. Lloyd George, a Baptist Prime Minister, to fill vacant Episcopal and eanonries in quick succession.
