JURY S RIDER. I More Powerful Headlight on I Engine. An inquest was held' at the Coroner's Court on Saturday morning by Mr. David 1 Clark, Deputy Coroner, on the body of Carl Christen Jusstan. a Norwegian I sailor, who met his death as 'the result of being run over by an engine shunting between Victoria Sidings and the South Dock just before midnight last Wednes- day. The driver, Mr Thomas Fox, said the bell .,it the engine was ringing all the time while crossing the road, and the whistle was blown twice. The engine was going at four miles an hour. The Coroner, in summing up, suggested I that if an effective head light had been I on tho engine .the driver might have i seen the body, and the accident possibly ) been averted. The jury returned a verdict of acci- dental death, but recommended that a more powerful headlight; should be car- ried on the engine. Mr. Bull, on behalf of Messrs. Powles- land and Mason, promised that this should be done.

Miles) said he had as yet received no message from the Prince, but that on Leaving his Royal Highness told him, with obvious sincerity, he was both surprised and delighted with his reception and, with what he had seen in Swansea. The Mayor added that he wished to eay how indebted he felt to the townspeople for the magnificent way they responded to the occasion. Notwithstanding doubts as to whether what was attempted was toe much for the time available, the pro- gramme went through with a swing, and the public did all the rest that was neces- sary. He hoped to thank personally all who rendered special assistance, but if he omitted any he would be glad jf they would believe that this was not from de. sire but because of oversight. Limitations of time and accommoda- j tion made the arrangements rather diffi- cult, but the kindness of everyone assisted greatly in making the visit such a success, i A WORD FOR THE "LEADER." ] Lastly, the Mayor said he was very glad J at the splendid way in which the visit had been reported in the Press, and especially at the promptitude with which j the Leader gave the luncheon speechee j in full and the farewell in its last edition, j COMMANDANT MAGGS. Commandant Maggs' establishment in Wind-etreet yesterday closed in responee to the Mayor's request to Swansea busi- ns.

BUNCH OF ROSES. Royal Story From I Biackpill. I The best story of the day in connection with the visit of the Prince o.L Wal,& to Swansea comes from Blackpill, When the Prince's car passed along Mumbles road on the way to Langland, somehow or othtr the little maiden who was waiting to present a beautiful bouquet of flowers for the Prince was over- looked. But on the return journey she was seen and the car was stopped, and the little maid had the delight of presenting her lovely gift to the Prince. I The car restarted, and then a bunch of ordinary garden roee, was thrown into i the car. One of th* Prince's attendants I picked it up, and found it was bound with a handkerchief, and also surrounded by bits of paper, on which waa written in very uncertain lines, God bless the Prince." The Price's attcgiants were examin- ing this co; 'ribution vhe-n the Prince had his attenti, j drawn t- it, and he was so moved by t story, e. ecial.y by the in- scription, t' ?t he took 'he smp}e little j bonnet v.' him. in.?
