POSTHUMOUS CHILD IN THE WAY.

The Paris police are trying to trace the kidnappers of a baby boy who is the heir to the fortune of a millionaire. The child was spirited away from the Tuileries Gardens in a very mysterious fashion. His mother, who lives opposite the gardens, sent the nurse out with the child for an airing. Some time after she went to the window, and to her horror saw the nurse asleep on a bench, but no sign of the baby. She rushed over to the gardens, and with considerable difficulty aroused the nurse. The girl said that a man had come up behind her as she held the baby in her arms and put a chloroformed handkerchief over her face, after which she remembered no more. The mother suspects her late husband's relatives, who live in Algeria. Her husband died intestate, and if it had not been for the birth of his posthumous child they would have shared his fortune. - "Daily Express."

MOTOR 'BUS COMBINE.

For some time past there has been a feeling that important developments were likely to occur in regard to the motor omnibus companies of London. According to information received by the "Tribune's" City correspondent, from a usually trustworthy source, the development is likely to take the form of an amalgamation of the leading companies. This will include the London Motor Omnibus Company (Vanguard service), the London and District (Arrow service), the Motor 'Bus Company, and the London and Provincial Motor Omnibus Company. At present the matter is only in the negotiation stage, but if it is carried through the combination will have a capital of two millions. The correspondent further learns that the London Motor Omnibus Company has been approached by the London General Omnibus Company and Tillings (Ltd.) with a view to the formation of a big undertaking, with a capital of four millions, the amalgamation, apparently, to take effect after the first "combine" has been carried through.

WALKING EMERALD SHOP.

A passenger who arrived by the Oceanic at New York on Wednesday afternoon proved to be a walking emerald mine. He is a Spaniard named Manuel Saurez. On his arrival he declared that he had nothing dutiable in his baggage. The first discovery made was that of a small parcel of gems sewn in the lining of the Spaniard's coat. Then another was found sewn in the waistband of his trousers, then a small package carried under each armpit. Other stones were discovered in the lining of his hat. Every garment he was wearing proved to be richly gemiferous, and as far as at present mined Saurez has yielded 300 emeralds of the first quality valued at 5,000. Saurez is being detained until it is certain that the mine has been thoroughly exhausted. The emeralds have been confiscated. - "Daily Mail."

QUEER STORY FROM NICE.

A robbery, attended with violence, was committed in a house on the Boulevard Victor Hugo, Nice, on Wednesday. In the fourth storey of the house resides Mme. Luna Samama, a lady of independent means. In the afternoon the doorbell rang. The door was opened by the servant, and two men wearing masks rushed in and knocked her down. They gagged her and thrust her into the lobby, where she lost consciousness. The thieves then entered the room where Mme. Samama sat trembling in every limb. She was unable to utter a cry for help. One of the thieves attacked her, striking her on the head five times with the butt of a revolver. She fell unconscious, and the thieves began to ransack the rooms. They left with a quantity of valuable articles, and an iron box containing some bank notes of a thousand francs. The police believe they are on the track of the thieves. - "Morning Advertiser."

LOVE STORY OF TO-DAY.

A romantic story has been brought to light by the attempted suicide in Budapest of Mdlle. Galgoczy, niece of Field-Marshal Galgoczy, of the Hungarian Army. Mdlle. Galgoczy is twenty. For some time she has been living alone at Budapest studying for the opera. She became engaged to the son of Professor Ketly, and was shortly to have been married. One day, however, the girl received a letter from Ketly breaking off the engagement, and she afterwards learned that he had cast her off in order to marry a richer girl. The rejected girl made up her mind to frustrate the marriage, and she entered the service of her rival's parents as housemaid. At the first opportunity she exposed Ketly's faithlessness by showing her old love-letters to the girl and her mother, but in spite of these STORY INCOMPLETE - NO IMAGES

MAJOR-GENERAL M'CALMONT

Retires from the Army.

DISTINGUISHED ULSTER OFFICER.

The army has lost a distinguished officer in the person of Major-General Sir Hugh M'Calmont, K.C.B., C.V.O., who has been placed on retired pay. He was M.P. for North Antrim, from 1893 till 1899, and formerly resided at Abbeylands, Whiteabbey, where on two occasions he had the honour of entertaining H. R. H. the Duke of Connaught when he was Commander-in-Chief in Ireland. His career in the army dated from 1865, when he joined the 9th Lancers, in which he received his captaincy in 1869; next year he was transferred to the 7th Hussars, and in 1886 he was specially promoted to command the 4th Royal Irish Dragoon Guards. In 1892 he went on half-pay, and in 1896 he was made a Major-General, and two years later he was given command of the 8th Division with headquarters in Cork. During his military career he saw much fighting. He was aide-de-camp to Lord Wolselsey in the Ashanti Expedition, 1873 (medal), and prior to that was with the Red River Expedition under the same chief; was attache to the Turkish Army in Armenia during the campaign of 1877-78, including the siege of Kars (Turkish medal, brevet majority); served on the staff as aide-de-camp to Lord Wolseley in the Kaffir war of 1879, and took part in the operations against Sekukuni (mentioned in despatches, medal with clasp, brevet lieutenant-colonelcy); saw service in the Afgan war, 1879-80 mentioned in despatches); was brigade-major of the 1st Cavalry Brigade in the Egyptian was 1882, participated in the capture of Mahsameth, both actions of Kassassin, the battle of Tel-el-Kebir, and the pursuit to Cairo (mentioned twice in despatches, medal with clasp, Khedive star, third class Mejidie); and in the Soudan campaign, 1884-85, he commanded the Light Camel Corps with marked ability up the Nile (mentioned twice in despatches, C.B., promoted colonel).

He was created a K.C.B. in 1900.

Dealing with Major-General M'Calmont's retirement, a London correspondent says that two years ago when he was senior major-general he was superseded for promotion by several men much younger in the service, and so were half a dozen officers of similar rank, including General Wynne and Sir Reginald Pole-Carew. There was no justification for this supersession in the merits of those who benefited by it. After serving his country with recognised credit in seven campaigns, Sir Hugh not unnaturally felt that he had been slighted, and it is stated he dared to appeal to the Duke of Connaught, who is Inspector-General of the army, in favour of some reconsideration of his case. Apparently this has proved an unpardonable offence to the little tin gods in Pall Mall, and so an excellent officer, who has still many years' good work in him, is thrust into private life.

===========================

DEATH OF MR. T.C. SWEENEY.

PROMINENT DERRY MAN PASSES AWAY.

We regret to announce the death of Mr. Thos. C. Sweeney, assistant agent of the Belfast Steamship Company in Londonderry, which sad event occurred on Wednesday at his residence, 10 Clarendon Street, Derry, after a lingering illness. The late Mr. Sweeney was widely known and respected, his business position bringing him into close touch with the public day by day. His connection with the Belfast Steamship Company dates back to about thirty years ago, the entire of the deceased gentleman's business career being spent in the service of the company in Derry, of which city he was a native. Mr. Sweeney was married to a Miss Ayton, of Derry, daughter of Mr. Ayton, photographer. He was an adherent of the Presbyterian Church, and was a member of the Masonic Order. Up till a month ago Mr. Sweeney was at his office, but was unable to return to his duties from that time, death supervening on Wednesday afternoon. The intimation of his demise will be received with deep regret by a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. The interment will take place in Derry on Friday at eleven o'clock. As a mark of respect the flags at the Liverpool boat and offices in Belfast and Derry are flying at half-mast to-day.

===========================

WIFE'S EXTRAVAGANCE.

MERCHANT REDUCED TO POVERTY.

A sad domestic story was told in the City of London Court.

Mrs. Braithwaite, a Court dressmaker, of Windsor, sued Mr. William Riley, merchant, Great St. Helens Street, E.C., to recover 22 8s for dresses supplied to his wife while they were living together at Datchet. Mrs. Braithwaite said that in November last the defendant, accompanied by his wife, ordered a dress, and, handing her his card, said he would pay for what she ordered. Mrs. Riley ordered several other dresses and hats, and they were duly supplied. The accounts had been sent in to the wife, although they looked to the husband for payment.

In cross-examination, the plaintiff said she did not know that Mrs. Riley was a notorious drunkard. It was not true that the defendant told her to supply only such clothes as he approved.

Mr. Riley, in evidence, said that for forty years his firm had carried on a very large business as timber merchants, with an annual turnover of 250,000. A fall in the timber market caused them to lose 6,000 last year. They paid their creditors 15s in the , and he became bankrupt, and was still undischarged.

For some years his wife had been a confirmed drunkard, and owing to her continued extravagance he was now reduced to pauperism, and

"THE CHURCH OF IRELAND GAZETTE."

The current issue of "The Church of Ireland Gazette," which has just reached us, is full of interest for all Irish Churchmen. The "Gazette" has sent a special correspondent to the English Church Congress, and his five columns of personal impressions are very bright and interesting reading. Managers and teachers will find much useful information and suggestion in an article on the new rules of national education, and there is a strong leading article on the recent charges made in the Dublin Corporation against the Hibernian Bible Society.

===========================

BELFAST POLICE COURTS.

CUSTODY.
(Before Mr. Garrett Nagle, R. M.)

SOLICITOR'S HOUSE BURGLED.

John M'Stravick was charged on remand with breaking and entering the dwelling-house of Mr. J. I. Donaghy, solicitor, Holywood Road, on 18th July last, and stealing therefrom a coat, two vests, and four razors. It appeared from the evidence that only one razor had been recovered, and the accused said he had been given that by a man to pawn, and did so. That was all he knew about it. A further remand was ordered.

GUILTY STEP-DAUGHTER.

Catherine Ward was charged with having stolen a quilt, a bed tick, and a clock from her step-father, John Gilpin, 24 Kildare Street, on 5th inst. The evidence was that the woman took the things out of the house and pawned them in the absence of the owner, whose house she had lived in for forty years. She had been convicted four times previously of stealing her step-father's property, and on a plea of guilty being entered she was sent to prison for two months.

ASSAULT CHARGE.

Mary Ann Robinson, who appeared with a child in her arms, was sent to jail for a month, and ordered to find bail, or, in default, another month, for having been drunk and disorderly, and assaulted two young ladies in Great George's Street yesterday. Mr. A. A. Macaulay defended.

SUMMONS.

(Before Mr. F. G. Hodder, R. M., and Mr. John Gault.)
Mr. A. J. Lewis was the prosecuting solicitor in this court.

DISMISSED.

John Ritchie was summoned for employing John Stirling, the latter being under age. The case had been before the Court previously, and the defence then was that the lad employed was the elder brother of William Stirling, who was of age. An inspector gave evidence, and in answer to Mr. B. P. M'Erlean, who defended, said he did not see any other boy working in the shop. For the defence, Wm. Stirling said he was employed by Mr. Ritchie since Christmas last. His brother did not work in the shop, but he sometimes assisted witness in his messages. The case was dismissed.

AN ALTERED CERTIFICATE.

Robert O'Prey was summoned at the instance of School-attendance-officer Hugh Watson that being the father of Hugh O'Prey, a boy under the age of 14 years, he did on 2nd October, knowingly make use of a false certificate of age of the said child, contrary to the Irish Education Act, 1892, Section 14. Mr. John S. Osborne (for Mr. J. Donnelly) defended. Mr. A. J. Lewis produced two certificates, and pointed out that in one there had been an erasure of a Christian name and another name substituted. The defence was that the certificate had been tendered by mistake, and that defendant had not committed any offence knowingly. It was further denied that defendant knew the certificate was wrong. Mr. Hodder said there was no doubt a serious offence had been committed, but he did not like to send the defendant to jail. His Worship was informed there had been several similar cases recently, and that terms of imprisonment had been inflicted on the offenders. Mr. Osborne -- There are sufficient grounds for exercising clemency in this case. -- The case was adjourned for a fortnight.

===========================

"NED" IN TROUBLE AGAIN.

At Belfast Recorder's Court to-day, before his Honour Judge Fitzgibbon, K.C., Dr. Wm. Burns, 85 Ravenhill Road, sued Messrs. Maguire & Edwards, Arthur Street, to recover 9, loss and damage sustained by the plaintiff, through the alleged negligence of the defendantes' servants.

Mr. T. J. Campbell (instructed by Mr. T.E. Alexander) appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. George Hill Smith (instructed by Mr. Frank Kerr) represented the defendants.

Counsel, in opening the case for the plaintiff, said the plaintiff was cycling in Victoria Square, when a horse and van, driven by a servant of the defendants, turned round Montgomery Street and collided with the plaintiff, with the result that the plaintiff's bicycle was damaged, the plaintiff himself narrowly escaping injury. Counsel contended that the driver had not the horse under proper control. He understood that the driver's name was O'Donnell, but he was better known as "Ned" -- (laughter) -- and at the present time every wall and building throughout the city was claimed as "Ned's" property. (More laughter.)

Mr. Smith -- O'Donnell has nothing to do with that "Ned." (Renewed laughter.)

Proceeding, Mr. Campbell said it was not the first occasion that "Ned" had been guilty of furious driving, and he (counsel) asked his Honour to say that this was the cause of the accident.

Plaintiff, in reply to Mr. Campbell, said he was on his proper side of the road. In his opinion the driver did not seem to have the horse under proper control, and did not attempt to pull up.

Dr. Joseph Martin stated that he saw the van coming at a furious rate round the corner of Montgomery Street, and he jumped off his bicycle to save himself. There was nothing to prevent the driver seeing them.

Mr.Wm. Anderson proved that the plaintiff paid 9 for the bicycle last April.

Cross-examined by Mr. Smith -- It would take 6 to repair the machine.

Re-examined by Mr. Campbell -- The bicycle was wrecked, and plaintiff had got another machine. Witness was repairing the damaged bicycle for re-selling.

Edward O'Donnell, for the defence, denied that he was driving at a furious rate, and stated that he was going about five miles an hour. Plaintiff was on the wrong side of the road. Plaintiff dismounted, and the bicycle fell at the feet of the horse, with the result that the animal increased its speed.

Mr. Campbell -- Are you the "Ned" that was fined in the Summons Court in September? (Laughter.)

Witness -- Yes.

Are you the only and original "Ned?" (More laughter.)

Mr. Smith (intervening) -- Don't answer that question. It is ridiculous in a case like this to try and make matter out of these impertinent questions.

Mr. Campbell -- My friend is very sensitive to-day.

Mr. Smith -- I am.

Robert M'Clelland said the van was not being driven at a furious rate. Plaintiff dismounted, and threw his bicycle in front of the horse, and the van went over it.

His Honour held that the accident was due to the furious driving of O'Donnell, and gave a decree for 6.

===========================

SALE OF LAND AT CHERRYVALLEY, COMBER.

Mr. John Russell, auctioneer, of the firm of Russell & Niblock, Comber, put up for sale a small farm for the administrator of the late James M'Morran, consisting of 4 acres and 30 perches, in the townland of Cherryvalley, Comber. The following were the biddings: -- Mr. D. M'Morran, 100, 150, 160, 180, 200, 210, 220, 230; Mr. Houston, 120; Mr. Galway, 155, 175, 205, 215, 225, 235, 250, 260, 270; Mrs. Wightman, 170, 185; Mr. M'Burney, 255, 265, 2275. Mr. M'Burney was declared the purchaser at 275. Mr. Alex Stewart, solicitor, Newtownards, had carriage of sale.

===========================

BELFAST WARD VACANCY.

A meeting of the Central Council of the Belfast Citizens' Association, Ltd., was held on Monday evening in the Association Offices, 35 Royal Avenue, when a deputation of the Victoria Ward Committee attended with reference to the existing vacancy. It was decided to promote Mr. M'Mordie's candidature by all energetic measures possible, and Mr. M'Mordie's address will appear in due course. It was arranged to hold a special meeting of the members of the association about 22nd or 23rd of the present month, of which due notice will be given, the object being to arouse interest in the work of the association, and to discuss public matters generally. It was felt by the meeting that the present juncture affords a special opportunity for bringing about a decided change in the personnel of the Corporation, and some influential citizens were mentioned as possible candidates.

===========================

BELFAST RECORDER'S COURT.

The October civil bill sessions for the jurisdiction of the city of Belfast were opened in the Crown Court of the County Courthouse, Crumlin Road, to-day by the Recorder of Belfast, his Honour Judge Fitzgibbon, K.C. Mr. H. McNeile McCormick, clerk of the Crown and Peace, was in attendance. The undefended civil bills occupied the attention of the Court for an hour and a half.

"A GROSS FRAUD."

During the hearing of the undefended cases, an action brought by Kare Berman, draper, 116 Peter's Hill, against James Duncan, 136 M'Tier Street, described as an artisan, was called. Mr. Wm. Harper appeared for the plaintiff.

Plaintiff said he saw the defendant in his house on Thursday last, but defendant's wife, Jane Duncan, denied this, and swore that her husband was not at home on that date, but was in the Union hospital. He had been in that institution three times since Christmas, owing to an injury he had sustained.

His Honour then struck out the case.

Subsequently, Mr. Harper said a gross fraud had been perpetrated on his Honour. The defendant was actually in the court, and the statement made by the wife had been a gross misrepresentation of fact.

Defendant's wife was again called forward.

His Honour -- What made you say your husband was in the hospital?

The Wife -- So he was.

Sure, he is here? -- He was in the hospital three times before Christmas I said.

Mr. Harper said he had observed that in some of the London courts the judges there had made remarks that some slight legislation would have to take place for the purpose of having a summary means of dealing with the cases of perjury that came before the court from time to time.

The debt was again proved, and his Honour granted a decree for the full amount.

BLACK v. JOHNSTON.

This was an ordinary civil bill action, in which Mary Black, 9 Exchange Street, sued Samuel Johnson, dyer and cleaner, 82 York Street, for the sum of 2 10s for damages to a silk corded cape, plaintiff's property. Mr. Joseph Donnelly (for Mr. J. S. Osborne) was for the plaintiff, and the defendant was represented by Mr. W. Tughan.

His Honour dismissed the case on the merits.

BELFAST CARTER INJURED.

About 8.40 this morning a carter named Peter Mason, who resides at 7 Blythe Street, and is employed by Messrs. John Harkness & Co., sustained somewhat serious injuries while engaged at his work. He was loading angle irons at the Queen's Bridge for Messrs. Harland & Wolff, and the iron was being lowered from a crane on to the lorry. One of the angle irons swung round, when its end was resting on the vehicle, and struck the unfortunate man on the shoulder. Assistance was promptly rendered, and he was conveyed to the Royal Victoria Hospital in the ambulance. His shoulder was found to be dislocated, and he was also suffering from shock.

===========================

FOUNTAINVILLE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH.

Special reopening services were conducted on Sunday last by the Rev. Professor Petticrew, D.D., D.Lit., in above church, when large congregations assembled to listen to the eloquent expositions of divine truth. The renovations and additions to the church consist of a beautifully-designed gallery, which has been erected with panelled and carved front of pitch pine. As the former plaster ceiling had become defective, a wood one has been substituted, formed in small panels with sheeting of simple design. The flooring of the church had also become defective, and consequently a large portion had to be renewed. This portion of the work was executed in a most satisfactory manner by Messrs. Robert Corry, Limited. The interior of the church has been artistically painted and decorated and the joinery cleaned and varnished by Mr. Martin Wallace, who has evidenced great taste in the execution of the work, which is most creditable to his firm. The windows of the church have been filled with cathedral glass and lead lights, satisfactorily executed by Messrs. Campbell Bros., while the large windows in the gable have been put in by Messrs. Ward & Partners, with the burning bush and the lighted torch placed in a conspicuous position, giving a fine effect, and finished in a most becoming and artistic manner. Electric light has also been introduced by Messrs. William Dowling & Son, the fittings being of beautiful design and finish, and the work executed in first-rate style. Mr. John Woodside was the consulting electrical engineer. The contractors, who carried out the work to the entire satisfaction of the committee of the church, were Messrs. Robert Corry, Limited, and the architects were Messrs. Young & M'Kenzie. The church presents a magnificent appearance, especially when lighted throughout, and should prove a great attraction to worshippers in that end of Belfast.

===========================

FOURTH RIVER SATURDAY CONCERTS.

The opening concert of the winter series was most successful. The hall was packed from floor to ceiling, and hundreds were turned away. The programme submitted was sufficient to meet the most critical in every detail. Mr. George Howard played the opening selection in his own capable manner. Mr. Bob Ritchie sang with a freshness and power which show he has progressed since his last appearance. A coming element in local comedy is Mr. Dan Ellis. That dainty little soubrette, Miss Laurie Jones, caught on at once, and had the house speedily at her feet. Mr. W. J. Anderson was very successful in song and dance. Mr. Elliott, in coon songs, took very well. Mr. Bert Simpson got his usual cordial reception. Mr. Burns gave a jiu-jitsu demonstration, his opponent being Mr. Connolly, the exhibition being warmly applauded. The comic sketch, "The Colleen Bawn," was one of the best of its sort yet seen in Belfast.

LATEST COMMERCIAL NEWS

LONDON STOCK EXCHANGE.

MONDAY EVENING (after official hours). -- There was an increased amount of business in one or two directions to-day, viz. -- in Copper and Nitrate shares -- otherwise markets were quiet. Consols, after various fluctuations, leave off unchanged. The very favourable Board of Trade returns had a hardening influence upon Home Rails, but best prices were not held, Scotch stocks being particularly dull. Business in Foreign stocks was interfered with by difficulties in the telephonic communication with Paris. Russian and Turkish Bonds were, however, distinctly better. Japanese Bonds were firm, and Brazilian Bonds rose on bear closing. Trunks show little alteration at the close, after being better, and Buenos Ayres Great Southern stock was offered on the impending large new creations of capital. Nitrates, which were very strong, eased off on profit-taking. Americans were quiet but steady, remaining firm up to the close, when Unions were nearly 194. Steels were only 50 ¾, though sanguine bulls talk them up to 60 within a month. The Abosso monthly statement was considered satisfactory, and Broomassies are harder. Kaffirs were idle, and leading shares are a shade lower on the day. Boulders and Perseverance rose on bear covering, and Kalgurlis were a good market at 11¾ buyers. De Beers were bought on rumours of a possible 15s dividend against 10s. Copper shares rose under the lead of Tintos on a rise in the metal to 96¼.

WESTRALIAN IMPROVEMENT. -- "FINANCIAL TIMES" COMMENT. -- COPPER RISE PREDICTED. -- BROKEN HILL BUYING. -- C.P.R. & SEATTLE.

TUESDAY, 11.30 a.m. -- Referring to the improvement in Westralian shares, the "Financial Times" says:-- The lengthy period of wandering in the wilderness which the market has undergone has seen the weeding out of most of the weaker elements, both in the mines themselves and in the markets. The market is bare of stock, and is in a condition to respond to the good developments in Kalgoorli.

A rise in copper to 100 a ton is confidently predicted. Indeed, the Tinto Company is said to be getting that price for forward delivery.

The continued buying of Broken Hill shares was stimulated yesterday by a rise of 3s 9d in the price of lead.

The "Financial News" cable says that the Canadian Pacific Company have decided to extend to Seattle, thus becoming a powerful rival of the Northern Pacific and Great Northern Roads.

The following is from the article on the stock markets, dated Monday evening, in the "Times" of to-day: -- The tendency was inclined to be dull in most departments this morning owing to the weakness of Consols, which felt the full effect of Saturday's big gold withdrawal, and were also depressed by early rumours that the Bank would not get any of the gold offered for sale to-day. Before long, however, unexpected strength was shown in several quarters, especially in Consols, and in the home railway and foreign markets the rise was especially marked in Russian scrip, and Copper shares continued to attract attention, the price of the metal having advanced considerably. The American market, after showing strength for the greater part of the day, relapsed. On the whole the markets generally may be said to have shown a fairly cheerful tone in not very encouraging circumstances, for at the moment the most powerful general influences are the fear of dearer money and the near approach of the settlement, which begins to-morrow for mining shares.

TUESDAY, 2.30 p.m. -- The stock markets are not cheerful. Consols, which opened better, have gone back to 86½ for the account, and Home Rails are lower all round. Middies being only 63¾ on rumours of threatened labour trouble in the Sheffield district. American railway shares are under the best, but they are better than last night, Steels being 50 5-16, and Southern Pacific nearly 98¼. Canadas are a good market at 185 buyers. Trunks are irregular, senior preferences being better, and the junior securities worse. Mexican Rails have more than lost an early improvement, and foreign rails generally are weak. Guayaquail and Quito Bonds are particularly a bad market on the circulation of very unfavourable rumours. They were dealt in at 68½, and are now quoted 60 to 65. Kaffir shares which are carried over at about 7 per cent. as a rule, and 5½ for the leading shares, are now steadier after a weak opening. Siberian shares are strong again, some attention being given to Siberian mines, in which it is said Glasgow is taking an interest. They are 1 9-16 bid. Siberian Props are within a fraction of 9. Rio quotes higher at 15 19-32.

===========================

BELFAST RECORDER'S COURT.

His Honour Judge Fitzgibbon, K.C., sat again to-day in the Crown Court of the County Courthouse, and resumed the business of the above court.

JUDGE AND SOLICITOR.
UNSUCCESSFUL APPLICATION.

At the sitting of the Court,

Mr. James Stewart, solicitor, said that earlier in the week Mr. Harper had drawn his Honour's attention to a case wherein the facts had been mis-stated. He had another case somewhat similar to-day.

Mr. W. Tughan -- Before Mr. Stewart mentions this case I have to ask him in pursuance of his undertaking to pay me 3s 7d costs of the day, an undertaking given to Mr. M'Cormick.

Mr. Stewart -- And I have to ask him to pay me 2s 9d. (Laughter.) In this case the wife came up and swore that her husband knew nothing about the matter, and that he had been ill since April, whereas --

His Honour -- Was there a decree made?

The Clerk -- No, your Honour. It was nilled on service.

His Honour -- I heard it before, and I won't hear it again.

Mr. Stewart -- The wife swore her husband was ill in Templepatrick.

His Honour (intervening) -- if you want to bring the case before me you must serve notice. I am not going to listen to any ex-parte applications.

Mr. Tughan -- What the wife swore was true.

Mr. Stewart -- I can give you evidence it is not. The man is working in Belfast.

His Honour -- You need not go into a discussion of this kind. I have decided the case.

Mr. Stewart -- You granted an application to Mr. Harper, and this is just the same.

Mr. Tughan -- This is different altogether.

His Honour -- It's a different matter altogether.

The defended cases were then heard.

KITCHEN v. KITCHEN.

Patrick Kitchen brought an action against his brother, William Kitchen, to recover 2 10s 6d, alleged to have been due on foot of a promissory note.

Mr. M'Master (for Mr P. Donnelly) appeared for plaintiff, and Mr. T. E. Alexander (for Mr. J. S. Osborne) for the defendant.

Mr. M'Master said there had been litigation in the police court between the parties, but the case was settled out of court. Plaintiff had summoned his brother William for assault, but the case was settled, the defendant undertaking to pay 2 10s 6d. A promissory note for the amount was signed, but the money, although demanded, was never paid.

Mr. Alexander said that the reason the note was signed was that undue influence and false representation was made to bear on William Kitchen, to whom it was represented that he would likely receive a term of imprisonment if the case were not settled.

Defendant said he signed the note through fear. He never assaulted his brother on the occasion.

His Honour gave a decree for the amount Claimed.

===========================

BELFAST POLICE COURTS.

CUSTODY.

(Before Mr. Garrett Nagle, R. M.)

Mr. D. F. Spiller prosecuted for the police to-day.

FIGHTING ON THE STREET.

Two men named W. J. Keamey and James Halliday were charged with fighting on the public street on Wednesday evening. It was stated that Keamey was the principal offender, and that Halliday was only defending himself. A fine of 5s and costs was imposed on Keamey, while Halliday was discharged.

BLIND MAN IN THE DOCK.

A blind man named Henry Cairns was charged with having been drunk and disorderly, and with having assaulted Constable Lockhart. Sarah Cairns, his wife, was charged with indecent behaviour at the same time and place. It appeared that the male prisoner was shouting and making use of filthy language in Millfield on Wednesday night after eleven o'clock. When requested to go home he made a violent blow at Constable Lockhart, and afterwards made several attempts to bite that officer. The female prisoner was discharged, and her blind partner was mulcted in 10s and costs.

"SURE, DICK, I WASN'T DRUNK."

Constable Richard Lawless charged Teresa O'Hara with having been drunk and disorderly on the public street on Wednesday. The constable stated that she was very disorderly.

Prisoner -- "Sure, Dick, I wasn't drunk." (Laughter.) His Worship inflicted a fine of 40s.

HARBOUR BOARD PROSECUTION.

Harbour-constable William Armstrong charged John M'Cormack, a bread-server, and William Moffet, described as a clerk, with indecent behaviour at the Canal Quay at ten minutes past twelve this morning. From the evidence it appeared that, owing to the conduct of the prisoners, the constable requested them to go home. M'Cormack said he would go when it suited himself, as he could fight any harbour-constable on the quay; and Moffet defied the constable to arrest them. M'Cormack was fined 10s and costs, and Moffet was mulcted in 5s and costs. Mr. Ivan Young prosecuted for the Harbour Commissioners.

"I'LL DENY EVERYTHING."

Detective-Sergeant Wm. Eakins charged Jas. Patterson with the larceny of two bags and a quantity of flour, the property of Messrs. Isaac Andrews & Sons, on 8th inst. The detective stated that he arrested the prisoner in York Street on Wednesday. In reply to the caution, he said, "I'll deny everything." (Laughter.) A remand till Tuesday was granted.

SCENE AT ARTHUR SQUARE.

Mabel Lucas and Annie Knowles were charged with fighting on the public street at eleven o'clock on Wednesday night. It appeared that the scene took place in Arthur Square, when a great many people were making their way home from the theatre. Prisoners were fined 2s 6d each.

AN UNSATISFACTORY CASE.

James Scott, 47 Cooke Street, was charged with having assaulted Frederick Sprott, 5 Melrose Street, on Wednesday. Mr. R. Leighton defended. Prosecutor stated that he was passing along Montgomery Street about half-past eight o'clock, when he was assaulted by five young men, who attempted to rob him. He followed and caught one of them. Prisoner came up and got hold of witness's wrist, and put him up against the wall. Witness had to allow the man he was holding to get free. The other man betted witness, and struck him with his clenched fists. Witness had had about five drinks, but he was perfectly sober. A brother-in-law of the prisoner swore that Sprott was helplessly drunk. It was also alleged that he assaulted a boy, and the prisoner had then to interfere. Constable Mooney said prisoner was one of a gang of hooligans that collected about Arthur Square every evening. Mr. Nagle said he was not altogether satisfied about the case, and put the prisoner under a rule of bail.

"A MINIATURE HELL."

A young man named William Henry Church was charged with having assaulted his father -- Joseph Church, 34 M'Clure Street -- on 29th September . Mr. D. F. Spiller prosecuted. Prosecutor stated that the prisoner was a drunken fellow, and gave no money towards the support of the house. On the date in question he came in drunk, burst open a press, and then seized a knife, and swore he would take the lives of some of the members of the family. He made a blow at one of witness's daughters, but she managed to get out of the way. Witness had undergone an operation through a rupture, and the prisoner threatened to "rupture him again." "In fact," concluded witness "we are all in terror, and the place is a miniature hell." Prisoner, in reply to a question as to how he earned his living, said he worked "at the golf." (Laughter.) The case was adjourned for a fortnight, the prisoner undertaking not to go near his father's house.

SUMMONS.

(Before Mr. F. G. Hodder, R.M.)

Mr. A. J. Lewis was the prosecuting solicitor in this Court to-day.

HOLYWOOD MAN'S NEGLECT.

Robert Magilton, of Holywood, was summoned at the instance of the Belfast Poor Law Guardians for neglecting to support and maintain his three children, who had, in consequence become chargeable to the Union. Mr. Wm. Harper appeared for the complainants, and defendant was sent to jail for two months.

SHEBEENING.

Elizabeth Mulhall, of 43 Boyd Street, was summoned for selling intoxicating liquor without a licence. Sergeant Whyte gave evidence to the effect that he visited the house early on Sunday, 30th September, and found traces of a shebeen being conducted. On the premises witness found twenty-one bottles of porter. Fined 20s

SPIRIT GROCER FINED.

Detective-Sergeant Cusack summoned Michael Killin, 86 and 88 Cosgrove Street, spirit grocer, for selling liquor for consumption on the premises. The alleged offence was committed on 29th September. Mr. P. M'Ginn, who defended, said the drink was given to a customer in the nature of a "treat." Evidence was called to this effect. A fine of 10s was inflicted.

STREET BETTING.

Jas. Lawless, for whom Mr. Brian P. M'Erlean appeared, was summoned by Sergeant J. C. Menary for using Court Street for the purposes of betting on 5th October. The officer deposed to having defendant under observation between the hours of one and two o'clock, during which time he conducted eight betting transactions. The facts were admitted, and Mr. Hodder imposed a fine of 40s.

===========================

MILITARY NOTES

The Army Council has decided that bicycles, which have not been issued for training purposes, are not to accompany the unit on change of station, but to be handed over to the incoming relief, or, if this is impossible, to be returned to Army Ordinance Department store.

An Irish Command Order has been issued regulating the maximum weights of baggage and stores which may be taken by batteries of Royal Horse and Royal Field Artillery in Ireland when proceeding to camps for annual gun practice and returning to stations.

Fifty Colonial pattern saddles are being despatched from Woolwich to the Curragh for experiment as to their suitability for use by drivers in the Army Service Corps.

A system of interchanging officers between the British and Indian Armies and the Colonial military forces has now been established and largely taken advantage of by the Australian Commonwealth Government. It is proposed to extend it to non-commissioned officers.

The Judge Advocate-General has ruled that the section of the Army Act under which a soldier sentenced by a Court-martial to a punishment not less than imprisonment for three months becomes liable to be transferred to general service does not apply to a sentence of detention.

Major B. H. M. Fox, Royal Irish Rifles, who has just been promoted specially to that rank, is at present employed as adjutant of the 2nd Volunteer Battalion Norfolk Regiment, Great Yarmouth. He gets his "crown" at rather less than eighteen years service, having got his first commission in the Rifles in December, 1888.

Second-Lieutenant C. Norman and Sergeant J. Murphy, B. Squadron (Derry) North of Ireland Imperial Yeomanry, qualified at the recent examination at the School of Musketry, Hythe, and received the usual certificate. Sergeant Murphy shot in the regimental team at Bisley in July last.

Captain the Hon. B. J. Russell, adjutant of the 48th Brigade Royal Field Artillery, Dundalk, has passed the examination at the School of Signalling, and obtained a special certificate. Captain Russell is a son of the late Lord Russell of Killowen.

CORPORAL TO OFFICER.

All ranks of the 5th Royal Irish Lancers now stationed at Aldershot are very proud of the achievement of one of their number, a Corporal Ridley, who has just passed the qualifying examination for the rank of lieutenant, and is to be given his commission shortly. This young soldier has only been in the army a few years, but saw much fighting in South Africa. His promotion has not been unduly rapid up to now, but he has long been known to those about him as one likely to make great strides in his profession. He is said to be of good family, and to be in every way well qualified for the society in which he will shortly find himself. It is almost without precedent in our army for a soldier to jump from the rank of corporal to a commission, especially in time of peace.

The troopship Dongola has arrived at Bombay.

BELFAST CORPORATION.

COMMITTEE MEETINGS.

PUBLIC HEALTH.

This committee met to-day -- Alderman Dr. King-Kerr presiding. The other members present were -- Alderman Sir Otto Jaffe, Wm. M'Cormick, J. P.; Councillors Dr. D. S. Browne, J.P.; Dr. O'Neill, J.P.; P. Laverty, D. Laurie, R. Gageby, J.P.; Wm. M'Clure, S. T. Mercier, Dr. A. V. Browne

Mr. Moneypenny, M.V.O., city cashier, submitted accounts amounting to 443 14s 6d, and these being in order cheques were signed accordingly.

Mr. Dyer, the city accountant, attended and submitted a return for the six months ending 30th September, 1906, of the expenditure as compared with the estimates for the Sanitary Department, and it was found that the expenditure was 545 within estimates.

The report of the executive sanitary officer showed that the death rate for the week ending 6th October had been from all causes 20.5, and from the principal zymotic diseases 3.4.

There were 15 cases of typhoid fever, 36 of scarlet fever, and 8 of diptheria notified during the week, as compared with 20, 39, and 5 respectively in the previous week, and 15, 15, and 4 in the corresponding period of last year.

MILK SUPPLY IN WINDSOR DISTRICT.

The Chief Clerk read a letter from a solicitor acting on behalf of the dairyman whose milk had been subjected to the tests as already reported, stating that his client had stopped supplying the milk, and asking that copies of the analysis which had been taken be supplied to him. It also mentioned that the dairyman denied there was anything wrong with the milk, and complained that owing to the action taken by the public health authorities his business had been ruined. Mr. Scott was instructed to supply copies of the analysis.

Thirty-seven samples of food, it was reported, had been submitted to the City Analyst for examination, and these were all found to be up to the standard.

Councillor M'Entee introduced a representative deputation with reference to the condition of Millfield dam.

Captain Crawford said they were there on behalf of the owners and occupiers of property in the neighbourhood, to press upon the committee the desirability of doing something to improve the condition of the dam. The smell arising therefrom was most offensive, and it was in a very filthy state. At present workmen were engaged in cleaning it out, and the material taken out of it was as bad, if not worse, than that discharged at the pumping station.

The Superintendent of Works, Mr. Gullan, reported that when he visited the dam there were no offensive smells, and that no sewage had been discharged into the river that flowed into the dam, nor were there any dead animals found therein. It was moved by Alderman William M'Cormick, seconded by Councillor M'Clure, and resolved -- "That Mr. Scott prepare a report upon this matter, and submit it this day week."

The Chairman brought before the committee the necessity of taking some steps to persuade the Government to take up and pass into law the Public Health Bill which was introduced into Parliament last Session, but was withdrawn. He read several of the most important amendments in the Bill, which, if passed, would assist the public health authorities in Ireland in promoting the health of its inhabitants. It was moved by Councillor Mercier, seconded by Councillor Dr. O'Neill, and adopted -- "That a sub-committee, consisting of the Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Sir Otto Jaffi, Wm. M'Cormick, Dr. O'Neill, and P. Laverty, be appointed to consider the Bill, and to bring the matter under the notice of the Chief Secretary for Ireland."

LIBRARY AND TECHNICAL INSTRUCTION.

This committee met in the City Hall to-day at 12 o'clock noon. Councillor P. J. Magee presided, the other members present being -- Councillor Wm. Macartney, Messrs. John Horner, B. Devine, James Corr, Alex. Taylor, Councillors David Laurie, S. T. Mercier, and James Mackin. Apologies were received for non-attendance from the Chairman and Councillor John Thompson, J.P. There were also in attendance -- The Principal Technical Institute, the City Accountant, the Curator of the Art Gallery and Museum, and the Assistant Librarian.

The minutes of the Art Sub-Committee of the 10th inst. were read and adopted, on the motion of Councillor MMacartney, seconded by Mr. Alexander Taylor. These minutes contained the folowing recommendation:-- That a painting, entitled, "Where the white foam kissed my feet," by the late Samuel M'Cloy, an old Belfast artist, be purchased.

The Curator of the Art Gallery and Museum (Mr. Arthur Deane) mentioned that Mr. M'Cloy was born in Lisburn, and was apprenticed when a lad to an engraver in Belfast. During the period of his apprenticeship he studied art at the old Belfast Academy, and afterwards at the School of Art where he gained several prizes. He afterwards studied and received an art teacher's certificate at South Kensington, and was master of the Waterford School of Art for several years. On his retirement from the School of Art at Waterford he resided in Belfast for a number of years, and left Belfast for London about twenty years ago, where he was very successful in painting portraits of children. The picture above referred to was painted previous to his leaving Belfast.

The Curator reported the receipt of the following donations:- Shells -- Helix Pisana, only found in Ireland on the coast dunes of Meath and Louth, from Mr. R. Welch, M.R.I.A.; shells -- rare vertigo, only found in a small area of Connemara, from Dr. K. W. Chartres; shells -- helix memoralis, local form, from Mr. C. E. Wright, per Mr. R. Welch.

The following letter was read:-- "Dear Sir -- In accordance with the resolution passed at the annual industrial conference held in Cork ??? November, 1905, the Council of the D.I.D. Association are making arrangements for this years conference in Dublin, and have the consent of the Right Honourable Lord Mayor, [--?--] to hold it in the Mansion House, Dawson Street, on the 14th and 15th November 1906, commencing each day at eleven a.m. My Council earnestly request the co-operation of your body, and would be glad if you would appoint two delegates to represent you, and so contribute to the advancement of the important work which this and other kindred associations are engaged in. Most satisfactory results followed from last year's conference and we still hope to further consolidate the industrial movement, and to advance it on definite practical lines. As this is a work to which Ireland as a whole is concerned, I feel confident that I shall hear from you at an early date, sending me the names of the gentlemen appointed to represent your body. -- ours faithfully, for the Industrial Development Association -- W.J. Branaghan, secretary."

It was decided that the Chairman (Alderman Sir James Henderson) and Councillor P.J. Magee be appointed to represent the Council.

The Principal submitted a copy of the report of the Board of Education Consultive Committee upon Questions affecting Higher Elementary Schools, and he was instructed to obtain a number of copies for members.

A statement was submitted showing that 5,053 course tickets had been issued up to date in connection with the Municipal Technical Institute, and 1,383 2s 11d received in fees.

The Principal referred to the Department of Agriculture and Technical Instruction commercial and industrial scholarships and as to the possibilities of these being held in Belfast, and he was instructed to communicatte with the Department relative thereto.

Other matters were submitted for the committee's consideration, and dealt with.

POLICE.

Councillor John M'Caughey, J. P., presided at the meeting of this committee held in the City Hall to-day, the other members present being -- Alderman Wm. Tougher, Councillors Dr. James D. Williamson, J. P.; John S. Shaw, J.P.; James N. M'Cammond, James Makin, James M'Entee, Brice M'Ilroy, Robert Dunlop, and Francis Curley. The Town Clerk (Sir Samuel Black) was also present.

The cashier (Mr. F. W. Moneypenny, M.V.O.), submitted accounts amounting to 142 13s 2d, which were approved of and passed for payment.

Councillor James A. Doran, J. P., attended regarding the "corner boy" nuisance in the city, and stated that he had lately been receiving so many letters of complaint and personal applications regarding this growing evil that he considered it his duty to bring the question under the committee's notice. He also referred to the well-dressed hooligans who frequent suburban roads and insult respectable citizens, more especially unprotected young women and children. The Chairman informed him that the committee were quite in sympathy with him in this matter, and had frequently been in communication with the Commissioner of Police on the subject. During the discussion the opinion was expressed that the police should, if possible, have additional powers to deal with this nuisance, and the Town Clerk was requested to look into the question and report.

He Superintendent of the Fire Brigade (Mr. Geo. Smith) reported that during the week one call of fire and 46 ambulance cases had been attended to, and 13 factories and work-shops inspected.

Councillor M'Clure attended and asked that the lighting of Ormeau Road from Rosetta Park to Hampton Park be improved, and he was informed that this would be duly considered.

The Superintendent of the Fire Brigade was requested to report at next meeting as to the ordering of the additional ambulance carriage authorised by the Council.

The street inspector (Mr. Mahood) reported, and Councillor Mackin was requested to bring before the Tramways and Electricity Committee the desirability of having the portion of the tram roads at Andersontown and Cregagh, which are outside the city boundary, properly lighted.

Mr. Mahood, as directed at last meeting, reported on the lighting of Ross Street and Raglan Street, and certain improvements therein were ordered to be carried out. Councillor Mackin asked that the lighting of Ward Street be improved, and that a large lamp be placed on one of the existing lights opposite Drew Memorial Church, and Mr. Mahood was instructed to report on both these applications.

Three tenders only having been received in response to the Committee's advertisement for contractors for the proposed underground convenience to be constructed in Donegall Square North. And a fourth firm having asked for an extension of time to tender in, it was decided to extend the time by four weeks and to re-advertise, the three tenders received remaining unopened. The committee had before them reports from the Car Inspector as to offences against the street trading bylaws, and directed that summonses be taken out against those boys who do not wear their badges.

We would direct the attention of all interested in our scheme for the renovation of the Maglone memorial in the City Cemetery to the fact that the subscription list will be closed in the course of a few days, this step being rendered imperative by the near approach of the winter season. As a few pounds are still required to enable the work to be satisfactorily executed, it is to be hoped that all who have entertained thoughts of contributing will now lose no time in carrying out their laudable intention.

THE BELFAST SENSATION.

Our representative had an interview to-day with the solicitor for the next-of-kin of the deceased Mrs. Hearst, and with the constabulary authorities, and learned that letters of administration have been taken out, the lady not having made a will. In addition to the deposit receipt for 600, the savings bank book showing a credit balance of 60 odd, and a sum of 465 10s in cash, there was little of any value but ordinary household furniture found in the house. The police handed everything over to the solicitor for the next-of-kin.

===========================

SIR A. MACDONNELL,

LORD LANSDOWNE'S DEFENCE.

LATE GOVERNMENT AND DEVOLUTION.

EMPHATIC PRONOUNCEMENT.

Irish affairs loomed large in a speech delivered in Nottingham on Friday night by the Marquis of Lansdowne. The gathering was under the auspices of the Notts Liberal Unionist Association, and was attended by 4,500 people.

The part of the speech devoted to Ireland was as follows:-- You all know that for some time past a rumour has been freely circulated that Mr. Balfour and his late colleagues are precluded from opposing Home Rule, because they themselves have been coquetting with Home Rule. It has been said that there is documentary evidence connecting us with such an intrigue. It has been further said that the knowledge that the evidence exists has influenced our action in the past, and might influence it again in the future. Such charges are best met in Parliament, where you can focus them, and where you can extricate yourself from the atmosphere of suspicion and innuendo which has surrounded this question. But as I stand here, having the honour of addressing you as one of your vice-presidents, I think it is my duty now to say to you as emphatically as I can that neither Mr. Balfour nor his colleagues ever promoted or took part in promoting proposals either for Home Rule or for measures of Devolution leading up to the larger policy. (Loud cheers.) Nor have they, by committing themselves to such measures, impaired their liberty of action or compromised the liberty of the action of their party. (More cheers.) As for documents, we are not aware of any such documents; and we say if anybody thinks they have them let them be produced, and let us see what they are. (Renewed cheers.) This under ordinary circumstances should suffice, but so much has been said on this subject and in so much detail that if you will give me your patience I should like to pursue that matter a little more fully. I am going to imagine that some member of my audience asks me two or three pertinent questions upon this subject. In the first place, I may be asked why was I that in 1902 Mr. Balfour's Government appointed Sir Antony MacDonnell to be Under Secretary to the Governor of Ireland. Let me remind you that Sir Antony MacDonnell was one of the most experienced and most brilliantly successful of Indian administrators, and had had experience of a very special kind in connection with two great questions, both of which were familiar with us in Ireland. I mean the question of land tenure and of recurrent periods of scarcity. We knew him to be an Irishman of warm Irish sympathies, and we also knew that owing to his long career in India he had been completely cut off from party agitator at home. Now a man of this sort seemed to us to be a man worthy of being consulted with regard to Irish affairs, and as such I take my

FULL RESPONSIBILITY

for having recommended him to the attention of the then Chief Secretary, Mr. George Wyndham. At the moment the office of Under Secretary was not vacant, but it became vacant soon after owing to the resignation of the distinguished official who then filled the post. Therefore, the Chief Secretary mentioned Sir A. MacDonnell's name to the Prime Minister as a suitable candidate for the Under Secretaryship. Now as Mr. Balfour's name has been so frequently mentioned in connection with this affair, it is due to him that I should tell you that Mr. Balfour was fully alive to the criticisms which the...

UNIONISTS IN COUNCIL.

IMPORTANT SPEECHES.

NO TAMPERING WITH UNION.

The Liberal Unionist Council held its annual meeting at Nottingham on Friday under the presidency of Sir Saville Crowley, and about 800 delegates attended from various constituencies.

The Chairman brought up a resolution declaring that the Council learnt with the greatest satisfaction of the continued improvement in the health of Mr. Chamberlain.

Lord Amphill, in seconding, said Unionists could not do without the greatest living Englishman, and where he led they would follow.

The resolution was adopted.

Mr. Austen Chamberlain, M.P., in seconding a motion for the adoption of the report of the Executive Committee, thanked the Council for its resolution which he promised to convey to his father. The real causes for the defeat of the party at the polls, Mr. Austen Chamberlain thought, were to be found in the fact that the late Government exhausted its mandate, and had no time to prepare the further development of its principles. The party would resent any attempts to tamper with the Union. They had had no part or lot in any such proposals, great or small, and if any man thought he could convict them of insincerity he (Mr. A. Chamberlain) could only join himself to Mr. Walter Long in the challenge he had made, that the man should produce the proofs and let the country judge. He pointed to the self-enforced silence of the late Government on what was to be the first constructive work of the Unionist

NATIONAL EDUCATION IN IRELAND.

PUBLIC MEETING IN BELFAST.

"REVOLUTION, NOT REFORM, WANTED."

Vigorous Speech by Alderman M'Cormick.

A largely attended public meeting was held this afternoon in the Ulster Minor Hall, Belfast, in the interests of primary education, and was presided over by Alderman John M'Cormick.

Apologies were intimated from Sir Hugh H. Smiley, Bart.; Colonel M'Calmont, M.P.; Right Hon. Robert O'Neill, M.P.; Captain Craig, M.P.; T. H. Sloan, M.P.; Jeremiah M'Veagh, M.P.; Alderman Sir Jas. Henderson, D. L.; Dr. King-Kerr, J. P.; Jas. Johnston, J.P.; and Henry Hutton.

The Chairman, who was cordially received, said he accepted his position as chairman that day without the slightest hesitation. (Hear, hear.) He did so because he was strongly of the opinion that in the present state of Ireland it was the duty of every public man to expend his time and to freely express his views upon that great national question. He regretted to think that the question had been too long relegated to the special charge of the teachers and clergymen of the community, as if it were their special and peculiar province, whereas, in his opinion, properly considered, it was a question of supreme national importance, affecting every individual unit in the community. (Applause.) There were a series of proposals to be submitted to the meeting, to be spoken to by competent speakers. He did not intend to

ANTICIPATE THE VIEWS

that would be laid before them by these various speakers, but possibly, as chairman of the meeting, they might naturally expect that he should briefly indicate in general terms his views in regard to the solution of the problems before them. He did not expect, nor did he ask, everybody's acquiescence in his views. Having regard to the great difficulties surrounding the question, more particularly the religious element that had been imported into it, it was not possible to expect at least unanimity. But he did think that an honest and explicit expression of views in regard to the question as to what was expected from a meeting of that kind would conduce to the solution of the problem. In his view, the first need of Ireland was a well-defined and definite policy in respect to the question of national education. At the present time he thought it was obvious to every person that the

MILLIONS FOR CHARITY.

MONEYLENDERS' WILL

ASTONISHING BEQUESTS.

The will set out the following, among other, sums for charities at the death of Mrs. Lewis:--
400,000 for dwellings for the poor;

BELFAST RECORDER'S COURT.

The Belfast Recorder sat in the Crown Court of the County Courthouse to-day, and resumed the business of the above court. Mr. J. Wilson (registrar) was in attendance.

Undefended civil cases were at hearing for ninety minutes after the sitting of the court.

ROWAN v. WIENER.

This was an action by John Rowan, 42 Little York Street, against Samuel Weiner, 121 Cliftonpark Avenue, to recover 2 damages for alleged illegal and excessive seizure and trespass.

Mr. William Tughan appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. William Harper for the defendant.

His honour gave a decree for 10s 3d, the amount of the excessive seizure.

===========================

BURGLARIES IN NEWTOWNARDS.

Early this morning it was discovered that the business premises of Mr. John Bailie, grocer and provision merchant, Frances Street, had been broken into. From the indications on the door and the fact that a couple of planks were taken from the neighbouring premises of Mr. Frederick Aicken, cooper, it was evident that the means of seceuring entrance was by forcing the door which is hung in two halves. A large amount of money was in the ctsh-box which was abstracted. In the box were also a number of private documents which are of much more value to the owner. A parcel of silver, amounting to 14, was in a peper bag, quite convenient, but was overlooked by the burglars. Mr. Bailie does a large business with the farmers of the Ards district on a Saturday, and consequently had a large sum of money on hand convenient for payments. The work appears to be that of some one who was well acquainted with the situation of the house, and with a knowledge of the situation of the money receptacle. During the same night the establishment of the Irish Tapestry Company, South Street, was also broken into, but here nothing in the shape of money rewarded the efforts of the burglars, who, however, appropriated a top-coat hanging in the office. The police are making investigations.

DONAGHADEE NOTES.

In connection with the Salvation Army work in Donaghadee, this afternoon the opening of the new hall just erected on the site of the old structure took place at Manor Street, Donaghadee. The opening ceremony was performed by Mr. C. N. Dunbar-Buller, D.L., J.P., who referred to the work being carried out by the Salvation Army, and the necessity for the erection of the new and more commodious building. There was a very large representative attendance. Colonel Rowe, commander of the Salvation Army in Ireland, and Staff-Captain Rich, divisional officer for the North of Ireland, were present.

BELFAST POLICE COURTS.

CUSTODY.

(Before Mr. Garrett Nagle, R. M.; Dr. N. J. M'Donnell, and Mr. R. M. Young, J. P.)

Mr. D. F. Spiller prosecuted for the police.

"I WILL BEGORRAH."

An elderly man, named John Strong, was charged with begging on Friday. Speaking with a delicious brogue, he said he came from Ballina to Belfast to get work, but did not succeed, and he thought he would have to leave it. "I am in the printing line myself, begorrah," he added. "Will you leave Belfast if I give you a chance now?" asked Mr. Nagle, R. M. "I will, begorrah," was the immediate response. Prisoner was then discharged.

HOUSE IN A DEPLORABLE STATE.

Detective-Sergeant Thomas Huston charged Bridget O'Neill, 24 Theresa Street, with the larceny of a boy's suit and pair of boots, the property of Mary Ann Ferran, within the past month. The sergeant stated that the prisoner was slightly under the influence of drink. Her house was in a deplorable state, one small bed having to serve for herself, two of her daughters, aged respectively sixteen and seventeen, and a son aged thirteen, while an elder daughter had to sleep in a neighbour's house. A remand till Tuesday was granted.

DID NOT WANT TO PRESS THE CHARGE.

An old man named Daniel O'Callaghan, who stated that he came from Castletown, admitted having been drunk on Friday night, and stated that he did not want to press the charge - (laughter) - as he would rather go to the Union. The magistrates ordered the discharge of the prisoner, and O'Callaghan, having saluted, then left the dock.

"A PEEP BEHIND THE SCENES."

John Hugh A. Ritchie was charged on a warrant with having assaulted his wife, Agnes Ritchie, 2b Aberdeen Street. Prosecutrix stated that she had been married to the prisoner for fifteen months. He was a sober man, but he was in the habit of brutally assaulting her. He told her to leave the house on the night of the 9th, and later he caught her by the wrists and threw her against the stairs. A young man named Daniel Irwin swore that prosecutrix broke several household articles.

Mr. R. Leighton prosecuted on behalf of Mr. P. Donnelly, and Mr. J. S. Osborne, who defended, stated that the warrant had been granted on a statement by an excited female - the wife. Prisoner was a steady man. On Thursday week he had been to hear one of the greatest intellectual treats ever given in Belfast - to hear him (Mr. Osborne) in the chair, and Mr. Tom Sloan deliver his lecture on "A Peep Behind the Scenes," (Laughter.) The case was eventually adjourned for a fortnight, to enable the parties to come together again.

NOT THE MAINSTAY.

Patrick M'Kee was charged with having committed an aggravated assault on his sister, Kathleen M'Kee, Ann Street, on Friday. Mr. Brian P. M'Erlean defended. It was stated for the prosecution that the prisoner demanded money off his sister, and when she refused to comply with his request he lifted a clothes brush and hit her on the head. For the defence Mr. M'Erlean said the prisoner was the "mainstay of the flourishing establishment in Ann Street for buying and killing fowl." Mr. Spiller said the statement about the business was correct, but the prisoner was by no means its mainstay. The Bench put prisoner under a rule of bail in the sum of 10, with a surety in a similar amount, or in default three calendar months' imprisonment.

THE RATING OF DUNMURRY.

Mr. John Wilkie, J. P., occupied the chair at a meeting of the ratepayers of Malone and Derriaghy, which was held in Trinity Lecture Hall, Dunmurry, on Thursday evening, to protest against those two districts being made to bear the whole of the charges under the new sewerage scheme. Mr. J.S.F. M'Cance (county councillor) and Mr. Isaac Sloan (district councillor) having explained how matters stood, it was unanimously agreed to send a memorial to the Local Government Board protesting against the decision of the Rural District Council, asking that the taxation should be spread all over Lisburn, as eventually the whole district would derive benefit from the increased building likely to result, and that it would be a great injustice to the small farmers, who would derive no benefit from the sewerage scheme, to be taxed an additional 4d or 5d in the , seeing that already the poor rate, which in 1893 was only 2d in the in these two districts, has been increased to over 1s by being spread over the whole district. Those present having signed the petition, it was agreed to canvass the neighbourhood. Mr. Robert M'Kittrick, Sunnyside, Dunmurry, being appointed secretary to the meeting.

AMATEUR THEATRICALS IN BELFAST.

MR. SINCLAIR NEILL AS GARRICK.

The enterprise of Mr. Sinclair Neill in staging "David Garrick" at the Ulster Minor Hall for three nights is, we are delighted to note, meeting with well-merited appreciation. Last evening there was another large audience, and a splendid reception was given to Mr. Neill and the clever amateurs whom he has gathered round him. At the first performance the prompter was rarely called upon, and during the second the players showed less nervousness and far better balance. Muskerry's comedy will be presented again this evening at eight o'clock.

ICEBERGS OFF CAPE HORN.

BELFAST-BOUND VESSEL'S TRYING EXPERIENCE.

The Semantha, a fine, four-masted steel bargue, of 2,280 tons, owned by Messrs. J.R. Haws & Co, of Liverpool, arrived in Belfast early this morning from Seattle, with a cargo of wheat. During the voyage the barque met with tremendous icebergs in the vicinity of Cape Horn. About 26th July, when sixty or seventy miles E.S.E. of the Horn, fifty flat-topped bergs were sighted. Two of them were each fully a mile in length. The captain had to turn on his course, and for two days was in company with the icebergs, a very sharp lookout having to be kept to avoid collision. The Semantha reached Queenstown early this month, and received orders for Belfast on 10th inst., being towed up channel by the Liverpool tug, Jane Joliffe. She was berthed for discharge in the York Dock.
