WOMEN & THE LAW. Lampeter Lady to be the First Barrister. I i f The first woman student to 00 admit- ted to Lincoln's Inn with a view to being called to the Bar is Mrs. Gwyneth Mar- jory Thomson, daughter of the late Prin- cipal Bebb, of Lampeter, and before her marriage plaintiff in the case of Bebb v. the Law Society, which was heard in If 13, wlrtn it was decided that women were disqualified for admission to the junior branch of the legal profession. She now is likely to become the first woman lnemlier of the senior branch of the profession in England. The Sex Disqualification (Removal) Bill, which will enable women to become barristers and solicitors, only received Uie .y rece i N-,? d tlio. Royal Assent on Tuesday, and the benchers of Lincoln's Inn agreed next day to enter Mrs. Thomson as a student. Mrs. Thomson took a first class m law at Oxford. A FAMOUS ACTION. I In her action against the Law society1 she asked for a declaration that she was a person within the meaning 'of the Solicitors' Act, 1813. Mr; Justice Joyce decided against her, and she then took the case to the Court of Appeal, but with no better luck. No woman, said the then Master of the Bolls, had ever been an attorney-at-law, and there had thus been a long and un- interrupted uscge of what was the common law. No double added his Lordship. many women, and parti- cularly Miss Bebb, are in education, in- telligence, and competence superior to many candidates who would go up for the Law Society's examination, but with that, of course, the court has nothing whatever to do." By legislation Mrs. Thomson has gained the rights she so pluckily fought for, and ¡' the benchers of Lincoln's Inn have grace- fully howed, to the decision. I
The death took place Sunday at Bryn7 hyfrvd of a worthy resident in the person of Mrs. Margaret Price, wife of Mr. Tom. Price. The deceased the mother of the late Master Phil Price and Miss, Arianwen Price, the well-known vocalists, and sister-in-law to the Hcy. P. B. Price, Glandwr, Pem. The funeral iiiliei place on Thursday for Myn\ddbach, for men only. Tlie deceased was a faithful Mem- ber at New Siloh, Landore.

I BUNGALOW SACKED.] ————— ————— Children's Wanton Havoc at Mumbles. The astonishing destructiveness of three small Mumbles boys provided a story at the Swansea JuveYiile Police Court on Tuesday, when they were charged with breaking and entering a I bungalow at Mumbles and maliciously damaging some of the contents, and stealing six tins of preserved pears and a cricket bat. Mr. Rupert Lewis ap- peared to prosecute, and Mr. J. Evan Rowlands appeared for the owner of the property. Thomas George England, coal trim- mer, said he occupied his bungalow at Thistleboo-ii, Mumbles, up to Sept. this year. On November 24th, he saw that everything was correct and secure, and on December 17th he visited the bun- galow with the police. He found the shutter of the window forced down, and glass broken. From the interior of the bungalow six tins of preserved pears and a cricket bat were missing. The bed- I ding had been thrown from the window into the field; two chairs, th? camp bed and a quantity of crockery was broken. Cutlery was picked up in various parts I of the field outside, and also a smashed oil lamp. The doors of tho two out- houses had been broken into, and from there, jugs, teapots, and saucepans broken. He estimated the damage at £ 20. INCONCEIVABLE. I When charged by P.O. Squires, one of the boys said. "When we got into the bungalow there was one cliair broken already, and another one slightly broken and that one I fell through; that's all." In answer to Mr. Evan Rowlands, P.C. Squires said that the primus stove and the field stove were damaged; the I bungalow was in a filthy state. I Mr. Rowlands addressing the Bench, said it was almost inconceivable that the three lads could commit this gross I damage to the bungaloV. It was atenost incredible, but they admitted it. I; was in his opinion a case in which there was lack of parental control. One of the parents said he had served three years and eight months in the firing line. and in 1916 had to come home to fetch his boy from the Workhouse. The boy had no mother to' looki after him. • DIRTY LITTLE BEASTS." I The Chairman described the case as all exceedingly disagreeable one. It "was incredible that such devilry should be carried on by little children. Speak- ing to the boys, the Chairman remarked that they were dirty little beasts to go and foul the house after doing all the damage. The boys and the parents were each bound over for two years in £10 each, and the parents were ordered to pay £10 towards the damage.
TRAINS HELD UP. 1 -0- Derailed Coach Causes Delay Ii at Lianelly. Shortly after 7 o'clock on Tuesday morning, an accident occurred near the I up line of the Great Western railway near the Llanelly goods shed. a passen- ger coach becoming derailed during shunting operations, with the result that I the Irish Express, due to pass up at I 10.30, was delayed for over an hour. I the express tram was held up near the Old Castle crossing, and, after all hour's delay, it was taken from the scene of the accident on the down, line. Several other trains wore also delayed. I The line was cleared about 11 o'clock.

I RETIRING. ] O Mr. Matt Jenkins, Swan- sea's Telegraph Supt. After nearly 48 years of faithful [,nd loyal service in the telegraphic depart- ment of Swansea Post Office. Mr. Mat Jenkins, the chief telegraphic superinten- dent, retires on Wednesday. Coming to Swansea when very young, I and joining the service as a learner early in 1872, Mr. Jenkins, by sheer hard work and attention to duty, rose through the I. posts of first-class clerk, overseer, assis- tant superintendent, to his present post, to which he was promoted about fight yeans ago. Normally he would have re- tired twelve months ago, but was asked to continue in the service in consequence I of -war conditions. TELEGRAPH CLERKS' ASSOCIATION. Alr% JenKins occupancy of his respon- sible post was characterised by great in- terest in the welfare of the staff for which he was rcsponsibk. He was one of the founders of the Postal Telegraph Clerks' Association, formed in 1880. Later ho was chairman of the n-ssociation for six years, and, retiring in consequence>of his pro- motion, he received a presentation. Telegraph work in Swansea has been, of course, revolutionised during the time that Mr. Jenkins has been associate.d with it, and in hulk it has increased nearly a hundredfold. The local Press, and through it the town itself, has had much to thank him for the attention and celerity with which tlie staff under his direction has always handled important messages, political, legal, ecclesiastical, and sporting, which have emanated I or been sent to Swansea. # A NOTABLE FEAT. I As an instance of what has been accom- plished, it may be mentioned that the 50,000 Press words per day which the Church Congress produced when held in Swansea some years ago was handled entirely by the local &tan'. tMr. Jcukins. who, with his wife, "m obably live in retirement in Swansea, f"S a eon (Lieut. T. C. Jenkins, 5th Gloucesters) still in Palestine. In his retirement his numerous friends will wish him/every lioppiness.

TRANSPORT MEN. Accept Court of Enquiry Delegates from the thirty-five Unions affiliated to the National Transport Work- ers Federation, met in London on Vrue, day, to consider the proposal of the em- ployers that the claim for the national standard minimum of ]6s. per day for Dock and Waterside workers should form i:he subject of enquiry under the Indus- trial courts Act. The issues as to wages and l'orking conditions are recognised as of a ditiea? nature, invoh-ing over 100,000 meu and all the ports of the country. It was decided to accept the proposal that the question should be dealt with by a Court of Inquiry. >
ONLY MY BOY." i 6 1 U^. NLY MY BOY. 9 9 i Sunday Drinking at A Mumbles Hotel. I At Swansea on Tuesday, Thomas John Thomas, the licensee of the Mermaid Hotel, Mumbles, was summoned for sell- ing, or exposing for sale, intoxicating liquors during illegal hours on Sunday, December 7th, 1919, contrary to the Licensing Consolidation Act, 1910. Harry Michael, fuel worker; William Parsons, and Harry Claypit, masons, were summoned for bemg found on the pre- ¡ mises during illegal hours. I Mr. Rupert Lewis prosecuted, and Mr. Trevor Hunter (instructed by Mr. C. H. Newcombe) defended. Ne,=t(?r Williams said that in com- pany with Sergt. Williams, he visited ?tlie Mermaid at 8.20 p.m.. The bar was locked and a door leading to a small room at the back of the bar was also locked. Witness tried the door, and then was about to proceed to another part of the house when the door was opened, and Miss Bo veil, the barmaid, came in. ONLY MY BOY." Witness asked her who was in the room, and she eaid: "Only my boy." When the inspector went in lie saw the boy in question and three other men, with three pint measures in front of them. The barmaid said Miss Cole, the manageress, knew nothing about the matter, and eventually it was stated that the barmaid had had instructions not to serve intoxicants to anyone on any con- dition. In answer to Mr. Trevor Hunter, the inspector said the Mermaid was a resi- dential hotel, and, after the harm had been done Miss Bowen did all she could to prove that Miss Cole ^as not to blame. Mr. Trevor Hunter described the case as a very unfortunate one, and very hard on the licensee, who, in law, was held re- sponsible for the act of his1* server.' house, of which Mr. Thomas was the owner, was held on a lease under very stringent conditions as to its conduct, and he had done his very best to see that the house was conducted properly, and with- out any offence. It was a case in which the offence had been committed clan- destinely by the barmaid, and quite against the orders of the licensee. BENCH RETIRE. No evidence was called by the defence, and the BcncL retired to consider the case, and returned after 20 minutes, when the chairman announced that, after due I consideration, the Bench held the land- lord responsible, and imposed a fine of .5. The three other defendants were each fined 30s.

PATENTS FOR 1919. j i As expected the closing year has proved I a record in respect to the number of applications tor patents filed. Messrs Hughes and Young, patent agents, of Chancery Lane, report that the number of patents taken out for 1919 exceed 32.000 which constiute3 a record. Bet ore the war the average number of patents taken out were between 30,00 to 32.000. nlld during the war they averaged 20.600. Motor ear's and building constructions head the list as regards numbers. Labour saving devices also show a big increase. This year shows a great increase in Women's inventions which include dom- estic labour saving dedce. toys. building construction, typewriters, sewing mac-, hines. games, life saving appliances, farm- ing implements, scooters, treating textile's I electrical cooking apparatus.

I PEMBROKE DOCK DISASTER. Six Lives Lost in Boat Accident. • ONE SURVIVOR. A disastrous boating accident in which six men lost their lives took place in the Milford Haven on Saturday. There was only one survivor. A rowing boat with seven men left the main lauding at Pembroke Dockyard at 11 p.m. for H.M.S. Wistaria and Fran- col. As far as caA be ascertained, an altercation took place between two of the occupants, one of whoi after a few words, got to his feet and rushed at the other. This caused others to rise, and during the melee the boat capsized, the occupants being thrown into the sea, when the craft was about 100 yards from the shore. The six who lost their lives were:- J. Campbell, Mercantile Marine Res. J. Tyler, Mercantile Marine Reserve. C. Sheerman, Mercantile Marine Res. P. Romavne, Mercantile Marine Res. F. W. Pattison, Engineer Officer. A. How, Stoker Petty Officer. The seventh man, Trudgeon, who was the only one saved, being a strong swim- mer, endeavoured to rescue one of his comrades, but was compelled to release his hold and strike out for himself, be- ing eventually rescued by members of the crew ot the trailer Ao. U. I Romavne clung t the upturned boat and drifted across the haven to Haz^l- beach shore, where his cri were heard by two brothers named Rouse, who t rushed into the sea, and after great difficulty succeeded in bringing the un- fortunate man ashore. Meaical aid was immediately summoned, but he expired an hour later. The other five bodies have not yet v been recovered. It is stated that the whole of the occupants of the ill-fated boat were sober. The inquest on Romavne will be held I on Tuesday.
PRAISE OF ALE. I I U i Brewer on "Pussyfoot"! Danger. I Sir William Barclay Peat, presiding I yesterday at the annual meeting of Messrs Samuel Allsopp and Son, Ltd., said a gentleman. called Johnson, and known fl- Pussyfoot had invited them to beebme dry. Pussyfoot John- sOon wa- not a danger to be ignored. He believed that in his agitation and pro- paganda he was supported with probably unlimited finance. He would ii;5e his arguments with the voters who were not drinkers, and who might be prepared to revolt in support of the dry condition of this country. If the brewing trade did nothing Mr. Pussyfoot's" propaganda I must advance to an enormous extent, and the brewing trade would be allowing it- self to be attacked unarmed and unde- fended without a word being said in its favour. GOOD ALE, SUITABLE. Gpod English ale was a suitable drink I for our people, and if the case for it were fairly put forward Mr. "Pussyfoot's" efforts would end in failure. The Chairman said the company wished I to assist the temperance party by having public houses so built that a man might take his wife iii(I family in with- out disgrace. Their attitude, therefore, towards Pussyfoot should be a fighting lon('. to ddoa. the attempt to make Eng- land a, dn-" country. Good food and » good drink had I)mi the backbone of our I people in the past. and wo must not go to sleep and allow the propaganda of Mr. Johnson to overwhelm Iii,, with its conse- quent legislation before we know wherei we are.
NO SCALES FOR COAL. I I Neath CoiiKcsHor and I Haulier Fined. At Neath on Monday, George Single- toh, haulier, Cecil-street, was summoned for selling coal otherwise than by weight; and Councillor John Davics, coal merchant, Melyn, was jointly charged with aiding and abetting. Mr. j Matthew Arnold appeared for the de- fence, and pleaded not guilty. P.C. Burns said lie saw' Singleton j driving a coal wagon laden with half- j cwt. bags of coal in Windsor-road. He asked him if the coal was for sale, and he replied Yes." When as'ked to weigh one of the bags, he said he could not do so because he had n-; scales. Ii I know nothing about it," he added, Toti must; see John Davies about it. He is in the yard." S?tb?cquently he saw Mr. Davies, who said he had no scale for that wagon. NOT FOR SALE. Mr. Matthew Arnold, for the defence, said the coal was not for sale, and was being conveyed to the yard in bags. Singleton, in evidence, said he had no instructions to sell the coal, and was taking it from the railway sidings to the yard in Melincryt-han. tie did not sell any coal from the wagon. I Councillor John Davies corroborated, an,d said that Singleton had no orders to sell coal. ? BOTH FINED. P.C. W. Perry said he saw Singleton i delivering bags of coal from the wagon in Britonferi-y-road under the super- vision of Mr. Davies. There were nc scales on the wagon, and, when he spoke to Davies about it, he said, P.C. Bi-is has just pulled Singleton about it j in Windsor-roaa." Defendants were each fined 10s. J
SIR WILLIAM 0SLEE Interesting Connections With Swansea HotaI We regret to announce the death of Sir William Osler. Regi us Professor of Medicine at Oxford, and one of tiio greatest medical teachers of his time, which took place at Nor ham-gardens, Oxford, on Monday evening. He was in his 71st year. The sixth son of a Church of England clergyman-a Cornishman and a Cam- bridge graduate—Sir William Osier was horn in the little township of Bond Head, Ontario, to which his father had gone as a missionary., He went to Toronto for his education, and later University College, London, and the Medical Schools of Berlin and Vienna brought him in lin-a with the most advanced medical know- ledge of the day. BRILLIANT CAREER. At the age of 25 he was summoned h) Montreal as Professor of Medicine at McGill University, and the famo of his work there soon spread far beyond tho limits of that city. For five years he held the Professorship of Clinical Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, and was then called to he Professor of Medicine in the Johns-Hopkins University ut Balti- more, which he raised to the first rank ih the world as a medical school. Then camo his call to Oxford in 190i as Regius Professor of iledicine in succes- sion to Sir Burdon Sanderaois, and the re- putation which he brought with him -'f being one of the ablest physicians on the other side of the Atlantic has liteen wonder- fully sustained by his work on this idc-. Sir William Osier was a mlll or wide culture, fond of travel, and a voluminous writer, and was a man of great personal charm. i SWANSEA CONNECTIONS. Si r William Osier's family connections with Swansea date back for over a hun- dred Jéars. In 1819 his uncle, Dr. Edward Osier, a very brilliant man, was resident medical officer at Swansea Hospital. He remained here until 1824, when lw went to Exeter, but returned again to Swansea. Ho took a keen interest in literature, and was a clever man of widely diversified interest. THE PATHOLOGICAL LABORATORY. In 1911 the late Sir William came to Swansea and gave an a4dress on his family connections with Swansea. This visit was of great importance, for during bis address ir illiam urged the estab- lishment of a Pa hological Laboratcry at 'he hospital, pointing out the need and outlining his ideas of the work to be done. Thus originated the idea of the Patho- logical Laboratory, which, thanks to Mr. Roger Beck and Mr. prook, now is in full use. and carries out the work that Siir William Osier thought should be done at all big hospitals. The new laboratory is under the efficient charge of Dr. Sladd«n, j who has a considerable amount of bril- [ liant work to his credit • ( i ■
