The Man About Town. I If old ftge be not denied to me, I shall retire in the evening of life to some sylvan retreat, where daily papers are unknown, and prepare for publication in one huge volume Some Epistolary Correspondence of the Man About Town. When that monumental work leaves the printing press a big fortune will await the publisher if he should succeed in persuading every con- tributor to purchase a copy. I Solomon has said there is nothing new under the sun. There will be few things left untouched in that great compilation, should it ever see the light and face the criticism of my readers. It will be as com- plete and comprehensive as Shakespeare's view of life in the Seven Ages. What an agglomeration of subjects it will be I The serious, the gay, treated in prose and verse-with and without rhyme —approbation and reprobation. Those sweeteners of life--usic, painting, and literature, will have a place. The whole Art of Scolding a Town Council will be fully represented, and will undoubtedly be appreciated by some journalist yet unborn, who will find in it an armoury replete with every weapon of gentle raillery, sarcasm, scathing criticism, and honest apprecia- tion, all ready forged for his use I But need I expand for readers so very familiar with the wares of this column ? I propose to sample a few pages of corre- spondence, fresh from the postman's bag, and prepare them for that great tome which shall be a modern Inquire Within" upon many subjects. The weather is always uppermost in the minds of the inhabitants of these islands; and very fittingly the first communication that meeta my eye this fmorning is on the mildness of the season 1 In Breconshire at the beginning of the week ripe strawberriee were picked. Gooseberries it seems are quite out of season, despite the mildness of the weather," Straw- berries of quite & good size this corre- spondent picked, and had the snow of Tuesday last deferred its visit just a little longer, I have no doubt I should have been able to have partaken of strawberries and cream in October. Rosebuds I do not con- sider very unusual. I have a good many, and only to-day picked half-blown roses for my table." Who would not live in Brecon- shire, where roses bloom in October 1 Straggling blooms of such hardy annuals as Nasturtium and Sweet Pea are all that are left to some mortals of the summer's wealth of flowers. » From Navigation comes the next com- munication in feminine form Dear Man About Town,—You enjoy joke. Your Echo is always a recreation form [Here follows an amplication of an Echo story.] Many a time I would like to write to you, and I have no courage, but from some things you say I fancy you are a Liverpool man. Did you live there about 20 years ago ? for I think I knew you.— M.A. "P.S.-In any Echo during the week Ullder Personal, put ELDERLY WOMAN—yes or no.And please, sir, do not be offended." Strange requests reach me occasionally, but this Is the first time I have been asked to participate in the questionable delights of the Agony Column I There's many a romance,comedy, and tragedy hidden behind those two and three line paragraphs which occasionally adorn the ad vertisement columns of the daily paper, and to which the readers turn with interest and curiosity. But this is as prosy as a receipt for removing wrong impressions :— Turn we now to more serious things — Dear Man About Towti.-Above all other questions, the question of the Exhibition next year must take precedence. We have asked Lord Windsor to be the chief magistrate simply because we shall have such a function. Lord Bute has been asked to entertain the Prince of Wales should H.R.H. consent to visit the Princi. pality so that we really arc endeavouring to (once more) advocate the claims of Cardiff to be the Metropolis of Wales. The Exhibition scheme has gone through many vicissitudes and has had a great deal of opposition to contend with. According to what has lately transpired it has not yet developed into a perfectly successful ideal. For some reason or other there appears to be a want of enthusiasm on the part of the public generally. Th? point is, What is the cause of this ? I may be wrong, and I hope I shall be proved to be so, but I cannot disguise from myself the fact that the Executive Committee are responsible for this condition of affairs. It will be within the recollection of the guarantors that this said Committee practically nominated and elected themselves that since that election they have executed work which really be. longed to other Committees that they have got themselves nominated and elected on other Committees and Sections and really have so interfered with and domineered over these Committees that the members do not know what power they have. But above all —and this is a matter for the serious con- sideration of the guarantors-this Executive have made arrangements with a firm which seriously threatens the financial success of the Exhibition. The tender for the supply cf refreshments has been muddled up with a lot of side shows,' and it is impossible to say how much Messrs Culley and Shoolbred are paying for the privilege of supplying refreshments to the visitors. That there are caterers who are I ready to pay a very handsome sum for this privilege is well known, but why they are excluded from the competition is only known to that august body the Executive Committee. These matters are of such vital importance to the success of the Exhibition that I offer no apology for bringing them betore your notice.—I am, &c., H A WELL-WISHER." of A Student is in a sarcastic humour this morning. He sends me a complaint and a suggestion When on my bike last night in front of the Town Hall, the front wheel went into such a great hollow that I was nearly thrown. Having balanced the shock by a curt but modest expression, I got off and examined the place, and found a dangerous hole in the wood pavement of the tramway I i-ack, deep enough to throw a horse. Ruskin once led his students at Oxford on a road- making experiment. Our Principal is reported to have expressed his opinion on the Municipal elections. Can't he be per- suaded to lead the engineering students down to the front of the Town Hall to repair the road? That would be much better. They could find sufficient election challenges and printed addresses to fill up the hollows which the Corporation neither fill them- selves nor compel the Tramways Company to do." My young friend is in too big a hurry. Months ago the Borough Engineer reported on the dilapidated condition of the tramway tracks, and notices were served (once more) on the Tramways Company to make good the roads according to their agreement. And after these months of waiting the principal street of the borough is a discredit to the Corporation and a posi- tive danger to pedestrians and users of vehicles. Probably—it is unwise to be rash —there is an intention to repair St. Mary- street after the Town Hall has been built. For which we must rest and be thank- ful." unless the Engineering Students at the College, with true Ruskinian ardour, sweep down upon the street with a few barrow-loads of rubble or crushed bricks from the testing machine and fill up the dangerous hollows. The last letter I take up bears on the meeting which is held to-day to arrange the 'I prop )sed Welsh Musical Festival in 1896. 44 Welshman still believes in the absolute necessity of a competition and a big prize of £ 600 to act as a stimulus to singers and audience alike. This is what he says I agree with you and the committee that if it is possible to bring about the Festival to a successful issue without competitions it would be all the better, but will you succeed ? I venture to say that you will not. I am acquainted enough with the Welsh people, and have had sufficient experience to satisfy myself that you can't get them to take the same interest to prepare for oratorio singing as if preparing for competition, and you can't create and infuse the same inspiring influence into the people to come and listen to oratorio singing a.* if to competition so I feel sure if they adopb my suggestion it would prove the greatest success that Wales has ever seen. It would bring the people down from the Hills and neighbouring towns to the Exhibition to the extent of 25,000 to 30,000 people. » I also flatter myself that I know some- thing of the Welsh people. That Musical Festival will be a big success, "a great thing," 14 magnificent triumph "-adjec- tives fail me-r. what-you-will, signi- fying something superb and great There will be no money prizes to create local jealousies-no competing for money bags. You shake your head, 44 Welshman V Then if I must, I must, and here is the reason for my confidence. The competitive spirit must be there. I grant it. The spirit is there. The Welsh singers are going to show the Cardiff Choir and the Cardiff Festival what Wales can do with choral singing. National jealousy and the competitive spirit have been aroused by the musical success of the Cardiff Festival. What other competition is needed ? National pride has been touched In its tenderest part, and we shall see an exceedingly fine Welsh Musical Festival in 1896. I hope the Committee will decide in favour of two days and four performances instead of two. Music will be advanced in Wales by the Festival and I hail the spirit of competition which has been aroused with the greatest pleasure and confidence. It will be a great accomplishment to silence local jealousies and unite Welsh vocalists for once, and to bring them under wider and broader in. fluences.
DEFAULTING NEWPORT ROAD SURVEYOR. Mr Horace Lyne, solicitor, made application to the magistrates at Newport County Police Court this afternoon, for the committal of Mr Thomas Davies, late road surveyor for the Newport Highway District, who, be explained, had been contumacious in the matter of attending the audit, and had not produced his books. On the 5th inst. the magistrates fined defendant 10s for each of four offences, and the costs, but there were no effects on which a distress could be levied, and Mr Lyne asked for defendant's com- mittal to gaol. The Magistrates' Clerk read a letter from defendant's sister, residing at Aber- gavenny, in which she promised to raise the money ( £ 7 13.,) if Riven time.—Mr Lyne said the defendant could dress well and get drink, and was not a person entitled to sympathy.—The Bench made an order committing defendant for It days, but desired the police to suspend their action for a week.—Mr Lyne, replying to the magistrates, said further proceedings would have to be taken against defendant, as the audit could not be completed withoub the production of the books.

COACHMAN'S CRUSHING RETORT. A correspondent writes :-A token of the widespread popularity of Mr Punch's sketches which came uudor my notice yesterday seems worth a record. Journeying outside an omnibus westward in the direction of Brompton, my vehicle got into a temporary block in the narrow part of Knightsbri ]ge, and here I became the witness of a violent altercation going on between hhe coachman of a landau aud the driver of a newspaper distributing cart. How the quarrel originated I did not discover, but I heard the angry cart drivei say, l'iti man enough for you any way, if you'll get off your box."

The Strange Nullity Suit. MARRIAGE DECLARED VOID. The hearing of the case in which Ella Stier, otherwise Clarke, sought a declaration of the nullity of her marriage with William Stier on the ground that she went through the ceremony against her will, was resumed to-day. Arthur Clarke, petitioner's brother, said that when Stier went to South Africa he accompanied him to Cape Town. There Stier told him thab he had been married to his sisaer, and that the mother was present, but that the father know nothing about it. When witness returned home in 1890 he spoke to his mother concerning the matter, and she wished him to say nothing about it. Replying to the Judge, he said he thought his sister and the respondent seemed fond of each other. He did not, however, see them pay attentions to each other such as would indicate an approaching marriage. Mr Brewer produced the register of marriage, and the Judge said the petitioner's signature was an extremely good one with no signs of tremor about it. Henry Cotton, a local tailor, said he witnessed the marriage, but did not remember the circumstances. He had been called in on other occasions to act as witness. The Judge declared the marriage null and void with costs against the respondent
BURGLARS CHASED ON HOUSETOPS. At Clerlcenwell Police Court yesterday Frank Humblestone (22) and Arthur Alladey (19), both giving addresses in Clerkenwell, were charged with burglary at No. 18, Pentonville road. Constable Laing said that on Thursday night he received information that two men were on the top of the house, and went after them. Alladey went as fast as he could along the roofs of the adjoining houses. The coustable followed, and on the roof of No. 36 found AHadey lying in the gutter. The prisoner sprang up and made his way along three more housetops until he reached thc: Claremont Chapel, on to the roof of which he dimbed. then proceeded along the cliapol till he reached the next house on the other side, the top of which was 14ft. below. Alladey slid down a. gutter from the chapel until he reached the roof of that house. The officer followed him as far as the top of the chapel, where in a few seconds Constable 156 G joined him. The prisoner made a hole in the roof on reaching it, and Laing (the constable) jumped into the same hole. Alladey threw a tile at the officer, and Laing struck him with his truncheon. At the same moment the other man, Humblestone, appeared from behind a chimney. Constable 156 took off his b91t, and from the top of the chapel drew up both prisoners, one after another. They ) submitted quietly, and were at length got to the I street. Mr Had an Corser said this was a very dangerous chase, and a smart capture by tho I constables. Ho committed the prisoners for trial, ]
CARrilAGEOF COAL, I AN IMPORTANT DECISION. Great jubilation was manifested upon the Coil Exchange yesterday when the result of a jndg. ment given in the Court of Queen'r. Bench by the Railway and Canal Commissioners was made known, The cise was virtually one in which the coal trade sought to test the legality of the railway companies' charges in so far as they have been operative since 1893. Coal merchants have always objected to tho change which was then introduced, whereby 21 cwt. were to longer carried at the rate of I ton. Leading firms estimate that the decision now given is equivalent to the enforcement of a reduction in the cost of carriage of 2d per ton, and, inasmuoh as the coalownere claim the repayment of the excess which has been unlawfully oharged during the past two years. those railway companies that have carried coat under the conditions set forth may be mulcted in A huge sum. One merchant alone estimates that he will require JS5,000 from the companies who brought his coal to London.
NOTABLE MINISTER GONE, A COLLECTOR OF CROMWELL RELICS. the riess Association announces the death, at the age of 80, of the Rev. J. do Kewer Williams, who for so many years laboured at the Old Gravel Pit Church, Hackney. Trained for the Congre. gational ministry, he successively held pastorates at Limerick, Tottenham, Kensington, Camber. well, and Horsley Down, and in 1874 he settled at Hackney, where his personality will be greatly missed. Mr Williams was a great admirer of Oliver Crowwell, and for many years devoted considerable time and research to a collection of Cromwell relics. These were offered to the nation, but owing, it appears, to the want of space at the Britisli Museum, were not accepted. The splendid collection was afterwards secured by Sir Richard Tangye, of Birmingham, Mr Williams was one of the oldest vice-presidents of the Evangelical Alliance.

I Cuban Revolt. I SPANISH ARMY AMBUSHED. I 800 MEN KILLED AND WOUNDED. NEW YOEK, Saturday.—The New York Times correspondent at Key West says :-Ckibanad. vices state that whilst Maceo, with 3,000 rebels, were making forced marches towards Matanzas they formed an ambuscade in the forest in the San Juan valley in order to intercept the advance of a force of 2,800 Spaniards. The ambuscade was a success. The Spaniards made a brave fight, but were forced to retreat, leaving arms and ammunition and 800 killed and wounded upon the Bald.-Central Nevis.
I I CURIOUS INCIDENT AT THE OLD BAILEY. JUDGE OPENS FOR THE PROSECUTION. Many surprises have been witnessed from time to time at the Old Bailey, bub George Beek, who found himself in the dock charged with manslaughter, was hardly prepared for the opening speech for the prosecution to be delivered by the learned Judge who, with the assistance of a jury, was to try his case. By some curious oversight, no oae had been briefed on behalf of the police, and after Beek had gone through the formality of pleading Not guilty, the representatives of the law were with. out an advocate. Mr Justice Grantham at once entrusted the prosecution to Mr Kenrick, but, to the astonishment of the prisoner, intimated at the same time that as he could not expect counsel to open the case at such short notice, he would do so himself. From the Judicial Bench there then proceeded a sort of preliminary summing-up, at the conclusion of which Mr Justice Grantham's junior examined the witnesses. A coroner's jury had previously investigated the matter, and arrived at the conclusion that the deceased's death was due to misadventure. The same view was taken by the gentlemen sitting at tho Central Criminal Court, and the prisoner was acquitted. In this particular instance the charge was the result merely of a street fight, in which one of the combatants had slipped and received mortal injury.

WIFE'S AWFUL AWAKENING. I i Laab night a young collier named Joseph Rhodes committed suicide in Leeds under extra- ordinary circumstances.

I Players and Officials. I I A Youthful Veteran. I Few forwards ha vo done so mucb genuine workfoC tho Cardiff Club and attained such general popularity as Mr Augustus (" Gus ") Lewis, who this week has tendered his resignation aa player. Though he has never had the honour 01 representing his country he has taken part in every International trial match during the past six seasons. On several occasions h< has come very near to gaining the coveted cap, but his excellence as a scrummager and clever headed man in the open was con* sidered to bo counterbalanced by his lack 01 inches and avoirdupois." However, public opinion resented his exclusion from the Welsh team in 1892 93, and certain it is that many caps have been given sinoe to vastly inferior mefl } than was the Cardiff forward in thfl < memorable Pearson's year. This year Lewit has not shown his old form, though he played a rattling game againsb Newport. Pressing busi* ness cares, however, will prevent him continuing to devote so much time to training, and this is the reason for his retirement fyom the arena. I GUS LEWIS. I I It is to be hoped that Lewis will see his way tffe » keep up his close connection with the club, for tht I value of his advice and experience in dealing with players cannot be measured, and that he will tak( to ref ereei ng, for a bl e referees are none too numerous, Lewis is 26 years of age, being born at Bristol is 1869. He has been playing football since ha was I eleven. His first game was Association, he being centre halt-back of the Sheobear (Devon) College team, soon afterwards playing in the Rugby team I' as three-quarter back. When he left school ha joined the Roath team, playing as full back, and for them he did exceedingly well. In a cup com- petition on one occasion he scored a grand try from one line to the other when playing in that ( position, nnd this point won the match. In 1887-8 t the Ro?th team broke up, &nd Cus joined the Cardiff 2nd, and he has been connected with the club ever since, this making his ninth season. His t record is one of which he may justly be proud. In [ 182 matche." for the first team and 52 for the I second—a total of over 230-tias he played, I and during the whole period ho has missed very few, For the last thretl I or four seasons he has been the leader of the forwards, a duty he has done admirably, notably in Pearson's year then he was vice-captain, and the way the forwards set about their opponent! I in the Hospitals and Rlaekheath matches, when in each they had scored 10 points at half-time,was in a great measure due to his generalship. Many judges considered Pearson's team the best that has ever represented Cardiff, Lewis's first big match was against Newport in 1889 90, when he was full back, and lie gave a splendid exposi- tion. Cardiff wou hy seven points to four. Last Saturday was his 27th game against Newport alone. He has gained his Gloucester County cap. lie has been a prolific try getter, and in four seasons has headed the list of forwards, and those who recollect his tries against Runcorn, Blackheath, Llanelly, and Moseley know hie prowess in that direction. Well liked and re- spected by everyone who know him, a more jovial, good hearted fellow never played. He has well merited the rest he anSicipates, and his name will stand as one of the best all round forwards the Cardiff Club has ever had.
I ASSOCIATION, r ASSOCIATION, A Noteworthy Team. The 2nd Battalion Devonshire Regiment, which arnved at Pembroke Dock from Plymouth to take the qurrters vacated by the Welsh Regiment, has no Rugby team. There i, however, a regimental Association Club, which was formed at Plymouth during the season 1893-4. Before that the regiment, being abroad, did not play football. During the first "Ieason after the establishment.of the club the regimental team played altogether in 21 matches in various parts of the county of Devon, of which they won 17 and lost 4. In that year they took part in the competition for the Devon County Silver Cup the most valuable football trophy played for in the county but were defeated in ■■■< Ihe linal by 3 go-ds to 1 by the 7th Company" Western Division Royal Artillery, which was a J MWih heavier teani. During the season" 18$4-5 the • Devonshire Regiment competed againsb eight other county teams for the Devon County League Championship, playing altogether 16 matches, of which they won 15 and lost 1. The St. James th,) Less Footbail Club, which was one of the other competitors, had a similar record, and it therefore became necessary for the two teams to play off the tie. In the first match both teams scored 2 goal*, but in a second which was played shortly afterwards the Devons defeated the St. James the Less" team by 3 goals to 2. This was the first competition for tho League Champion. ship. The Devonshire Regiment also won last season the Devon County Cup, dofoating the 2nd .Somersetshire Light Infantry, which was one of a dozen competing clubs, in the final. This vic- tory and their triumph for the League Champion- ship gave the Devdnshire Regiment the righb to claim the premier position amongb the football clubs of the county of Devon. The competition for the Devon County Cup vas instituted in 183990, when ib was won by the Tavistock Football Clnb, thIS succeeding winners of the trophy heing-189091, St. James the Less Football Club; 1891-2, Pi vmouth Football Club 1892 93 and 1893 94, 7th Company Western Division Royal Artillery. The cup is at presenb kept in the sergeants' mess at the Hut Encampment, Pembroke Dock, but as it is one of the conditions that competing clubs must be resident in Devon- shire, the regimental team will not be entitled to compete during the coming season. They will therefore have to hand over the cup to the winning team in April next. The cup, which is composed of solid silver, stands about 18 inches high. and is of considerable weight. It has the name of each winning team, its constituent players, and the dates of the respective victories on separate shields in the central part. At the presenb time one shield only remains plain. At the formation of the regimental club Sergeant-Major King was the secretary, bnt on his transfer to the depot at Plymouth Sergeant T. Jones undertook the secretarial business. Sergeant-Major King was not himself a player, but ho took a great interest in football, and everyone who knew him seems to bo agreed that the regimental club will feel his loss greatly. II. had an exceedingly pleasant disposition and was generally well liked, being always ready to make any personal sacrifice in order to brmg about thu success of any and every undertaking lie was connected with. It was this spirit on his part which largely contributed to make the football club what it eventually became. During last season the regiment took part in 34 matches, of which they won 23, three were drawn, and eight lost. The suggestion is here made that the team be invited to meet the Cardiff Association Club au Grangetowii, if home and home matches oauno." be arranged. The Han. Secretary. Sergeant T. Jones, hon. secretary of the 8nd SERGEANT T. JONSS. Devonshire Regimen- lal Football Club, hat been 15 years in the regiment. He doer not play football, but has taken a great interest in tho game since the regimental club was established. He succeeded Sergfc.- Major King as secre- t-Ary lasr season, hav. ing previously acted a* assistant, He is s native of Tiverton, Devonshire, and is 3' years of age.
