In the Court of Session, Edinburgh, on Wednesday, Lord Kyllachv heard proof in the action in which Mr. Charles Orr-Ewing, Newark Castle, Avr. sues the Hon. Beatrice Ruthven, his wife, for divorce on the ground of infidelity. The plaintirf said hi3 wife had admitted to him in writing and orally that she had been unfaithful with Mr.

Malcolm, and that she went abroad with him. In further evidence it was Bhown that Mrs. Orr-Ewing visited Lieutenant Malcolm at his private room3, and that she admitted to a lady's maid and her medical attendant that 3he had committed adulterv with Malcolm. It was also stated that Mrs. Orr-Ewing had missed her train on purpose at Leicester, and was ton A i a tn art amv with "TV MaWJm HOME NEWS.

He went to see his wife, and asked her if he wa3 too late to save her. She said she had deceived him, that Mr. Malcolm had been Worthing both times she had been there with the children, and that she had gone wrong with him.

Mrs. Orr-Ewmg went to Margate with friends on the 4th August. He went down to see her the nf-xt day, and she renewed her promise CO him that she would not see this man. After leaving her he got a letter from his wife, in which she said. 1 think now that you can realise that I cot Id never come back to and is ended, Gol bles3 you.

You are the best and nobles: man." He wa3 distressed at this letter, and he at once travelled south to see her. He wen: again to Margate and saw his wife, and again urged her to give up this man. He offered to take her back. He told her that he had no evidence against her except her own i admission. She would not retam.

Various accounts have reached Varna regarding a massacre of Armenians, alleged to have occurred in the samoun district near Moosh, Asia Minor. Nothing Of an authentic Character is, however, yet known, although it would appear that there is no question of an attack by regular troops, but rather that the villages were raided by Bashi-Bazouk volunteers, who killed or wounded a very large number of the inhabitants. The British Embassy at Constantinople has sent officials to the district to ascertain the facts. FRANCE. SENSATIONAL SUICIDE.

A curious case of suicide through jealousy is reported from Chasille. It appears that some six months ago M. Paul Cellerier, a gardener of this town, lost his sight after an illness. How ever, nis young wite set herselt to earn their living, and continued the cultivation of their plot of land, with the help of a cousin, Isidore Blanc, who undertook the rougher portions of iaoour. The husband became lealous of his relative, and a nisht or two aso.

while all three were sitting at table, the husband suddenly rose and said, I see that I hinder you. I am in the way. iou love eacn otner, ana i am out an obstacle to your happiness." With these words he seized a knife which was before him and stabbed himself to the heart. PERU. BATTLE AT LIMA.

(Janon bcott-Holland, who intro- duced- the deputation, said the present gambling laws, while acting with stringency on the poorer classes who engaged in gambling exonerated the upper classes, and so, in his opinion, brought the law into disrepute.

The Home Secretary, in reply, said he was enure agreement witn tne view that it ought to be within the power of the local authority where any racecourse was situated to place restrictions on the licence on such places if so desired. Gambling in the way it was now carried on was unfortunate because of an enormous amount of crime, but when dealing with questions of this kind where the border of mnUt.v A nu ki EI i I r-j r.

He was prepared to enforce that law equally, only before he put the law into operation it was absolutely necessary that the power of the law should be clearly defined.

As yet there had been no decision by a supreme court that betting in those places which the league now complained of was illegal. If any decision were given he would see that it was carried out impartially. The suggestions of the deputation, however, would be considered. MR. LABOUCHERE AND LORD ROSEBERY.

In Truth Mr. Labouchere writes We have convinced Lord Rosebery that his sole chance of remaining in office is to submit the question of the House of Lords to the country it is our Dresent business to make it manifest to him that the reference must be such that the constituency will be able to vote aye or nay on the constitutional change 1 for mv hnninP I witness if she would remain in her service if she 1 did something wicked.

WEST RIDING RIVERS BOARD. Tne West Riding of Yorkshire Rivers Board will meet at the Town Hall. Wakefield, on Friday next. The chief business will be to receive a report and i consider the recommendations of the Pollutions and Obstructions Committee. The first recommenda-' tion is that copies of the West Riding of Yorkshire Rivers Act, 1894, with a brief summary of it3 chief provisions, shall be sent to each sanitary authority in the Riding.

The committee express the opinion that after the long-continued neglect of certain authorities, aggravated as it is by comparison with work done during the past three or four years by other sanitary authorities, the Board should indi-' cate that any further delay will evoke the exercise 1 of the Board's extreme powers. It is accordingly recommended that a communication be addressed to certain scheduled authorities, asking what steps i they propose to take to prevent the pollution of i rivers and stream3 by discharging untreated sewage into them, and stating that the Board will, at an early date, consider the course to be adopted against such places in the event of the replies not being to the Board's satisfaction. The authorities scheduled are those of Moriey, Haworth, Oxen hope, Hebden Bridge, Sowerby Bridge, Warley, Midglev, Sowerby, Hecrimondwike, Cleckheaton. Brighouse, Marsden, Slaithwaite, Rotherham, Handsworth, Stocksbridge, Penistone. and Monk Bretton.

The Pollutions and Obstructions Committee will seek the authority of the Board to communicate and confer, if thought fit, with the county boroughs with regard to the disposal of their sewage and liquid refuse. It will I further recommend that the Leeds and District Leather Trades Association be invited to meet the committee to discuss an arrangement for dealing with the refuse from tanneries and leather works before its discharge from the works. THE FRENCH NATION AND THE DEAD EMPEROR. Crowds have gathered all day in front of the florists' and jewellers' shops, where wreaths and coronals that are to be sent to St. Petersburg are exhibited.

The greatest interest continues to be taken here in all the details connected with the obsequies of Alexander and with the deputation which is to represent the French Government on that occasion. Nothing more, however, is said about the despatch of other delegates to the Russian capital. General Le Mouton de Boisdeffre. Admiral Gervais, and the other officers who are to compose I the special mission, will discharge their duties in a I manner which will give universafsatisfaction. Thev have been carefully selected, and may be described as all picked men.

The appearance of a troupe of motlev delegations at the obsequies at St. Petersburg miht have cancelled the impression that thev are expected to make. As a matter of fact, no little importance 1 is attached to this. In spite of the interchange of cordial telegrams between France and Russia, some 1 anxiety is still felt as to the policy which the new Czar may pursue. Public opinion is greatly re- aaaurea, DUt, nevertheless, the Parisians are dis- playins much eaeerness for intT the character, proclivities, and tastes of Nicholas i i hbkj ui xx.

Lanson, one of the professors at the University acted for 30me time as tutor to the then Czare-! vitch. and he has just thrown some interesting lioht on this matter.

A largely attended meeting of the Central Branch of the National Federation was held on Wednesday afternoon in Dublin. The secretary announced that over 100 had been received for the national fund i since the last meeting. Mr. Justin McCarthy. M.P..

i 8a Were met Qnder the mosfe encouraging had set before the country a 1 clear and definite programme, which was the result I Qf the unanimous decision of the Irish party. He! believed the country would cordiallv aoorove of that programme. The people should not be led away for a moment by the idea that the Irish party had ever pledged themselves, body and soul, to any English Government. They were as free now as ever to declare their va terms to any English Government, and as free as ever to Kn e. Mr i h-x-J i.v,J the immortal achievement of bringing together the people of Great Britain and Ireland.

Whoever went out or came into office the success of Home Rule was certain in the immediate future if they were united and would stand together, and no Government, however strong, could stand against them. As long a3 the struggle went on the Irish party should hold the balance of power. The i condition of things in which the Irish members would wuuesi, imagination couia scarcely conceive not have that balance, and it would alwavs be used for the good of the Irish cause and the Irish people. The present Parliament could not last Ions. He did not think it would la3t longer than next session, but they would put in the present Government again if in the meantime it did for the Irish people all that the Irish members wanted.

They did not at present pledge themselves to put any Government either in or out. If by any chance, which he scarcely thought possible, the Tory Government was returned to nower. the Iriah mfimhsra wonld reduce that Government to failure if it did not listen to the demands of the Irish peonle. Several i other momlrq alo addroaAd th merino CUTTINGS FROM TRUTH." I thought the question why people don't go to church had been discussed until it was threadbare, but the Sanitary Engineer has contrived to give a new turn to it. Instead of guessing why people don't go, my contemporary suggests a practical and powerful reason why they shouldn't go.

On its showing the church-goer is encompassed by dangere. He may contract some deadly disease through the passing of the Communion cup from mouth to mouth, or he may fall a victim to the insanitarv condition of the building. An alarming example of the latter peril was recently furnished by a church in the Paddington district, "it was discovered that in the cellar under the sacred edifice there were two pipes that went direct into the public sewer without the intervention of any trap whatever and, as the bellows of the organ were situated in this cellar, every time the instrument was played the contaminated air was drawn up and blown out into the body of the church. As the Sanitary Engineer says. music tempered with sewer-gas was on tap for the devotees of this church several time3 per week." Clearly a sanitary inspector's certificate as to the state of the building ouaht to be amonest the notices on church doors.

i The Queen has been in much anxiety lately about the illness of her close and trusted friend, the Dowager Lady Churchill, who ha3 been for many years one of Her Majesty's Ladies-in-Wait-; ing, and always a great favourite. Lady Churchill has been very seriously ill at her residence at Iver, Bucks, but she is now recovering and it is hoped that she will be well enough to spend the Christmas holidays at Osborne with the Queen. I In the Liverpool Mercury appeared last week a gem of an advertisement, addressed (in capital letters) To those Christians possessing the Lord's money." The advertiser was a young Christian i Jew," who stated that he had received a call to enter the study for missionary work," but was impeded by want of cash and outstanding liabilities to the amount of 53 and odd shillings." He therefore proposed that those possessing the Lord's money should make payments out of it to him sumcient to cover these amounts. In the Morning Post last week, a correspondent gave a long list of sums of monev standing" to the credit of deceased soldiers, and unclaimed bv next-of-kin, the amount in one case exceeding 200. It seems that since 1863, the enormous sum of made up of unclaimed balances of thi W1.

accnmu-lations, has been handed over to tne. Patriotic Fund Commissioners. This is chiefly i owD t0 the War Office not having troubled itself, as ouob-t fco have done, to discover the next-of-kin, ani Particularly to the absence of an effectual I system of advertising. For this neglect there can I no excase for there is not the slightest reason I wn3f the advertisements should not be charged against the fund, and deducted from the navment each case where the next-of-kin are eventually THE VILLAGE HAMPDEN OF THE WASH TUB. Mary Sprake has justly earned a right to the title of the Village Hampden of the Wash Tub.

Sir William Jones says in a well-known sonnet that what constitutes a State are not armies and navies and all that sort of thing, but Men. hiah-minded men, who knew their rights, and knowing dare poet uvea in a benighted age. I he enjoyed the privilege of re-writing his excellent verses to-day, and the pleasure of Mary Sprake's acquaintance, he would undoubtedly have introduced women somehow into the line, and would also have become an enthusiastic member of the Ladies' Enfranchisement Society. Why Because Mary boldly went before Judge French "at the Bow County Court and declared, I only stand up for my rights." Among them she included a month's wages in lieu of notice from Mrs. Wilson, of South Hackney, her former employer, who declared that the girl was dismissed because she refused to obey orders.

Is that so asked" the Judge. No legal orders, sir," replied Mary. She asked me to wring out a lot of washing in the yard on p. very wet day, and I only stood up for mv rights." What are you?" demanded his Honour. general," replied the maid with pride.

"A what? I tj -n -i i Wflo seemea to mm that tne answer had something to do with a budding Field-Marshall. A general servant," explained the plaintiff for a month's wages, "and nothing was said about washing when I was pnoacrpH. It n-nc Qo part of my duty to wash, and I am only standing i up for my rights." The mistress admits thof irl this respect the servant wa3 correct, but contended that the word general included washing." udge French held that as nothing was said about wringing and washing at the time the girl was engaged, she could not be dismissed peremptorily for refusing to perform these functions of household economy. Tell the next girl you engage," said he what you expect her to do, and then vou will be all right." Judgment for the plaintiff for the month's wages claimed. CUMBERWORTH UNITED CRICKET CLUB.

THE LOSS OF LIFE. Telegrams received on Wednesday indicate that the continued gale was both general and verv destructive. On the south coast of England the storm appears to have been exceptionally severe.

From Monmouth, Carmarthen, and many parts of Sooth Wales telegrams state that the floods are verv heavy, and great damage has been done. From many places on the north-east coast wrecks and casualties are reported owing to the rnns 8ale which prevails. A Brighton te legram states that the sea there is terrific, and the railway between Steyning and Henfield is covered with gea water cauging mach traffic. Devizes telegram states that the rainfa ii luusui uaic uwii Kicviv QamaSeQ. The Eton district is considerably flooded.

Raia is still falling at Windsor, and bad floods are reared. A yuribscaurcn, xianis, wsiegrarn, reports that the river3 Avon and Stour are rising so rapidly that the main bridge at If ord, between Bournemouth and Christchurch, will, it is feared, be destroyed, Many streets in Christchurch are impassable, and inundations are unprecedented. Some thousands of tons of the Cliff east of Bournemouth Pier fell away owing to continuous rainfall. In conse queues ui me swveriLy ui ini uommunica- tion between Portsmouth and the ships at Spit- head is cut on. xne cruiser venules is waiting outside the harbour until the weather abates.

At Axminster the gale has increased. A number of cattle have been washed away, and many houses are inundated. At Newbridge, Monmouthshire, the bridge over the Ebbro, together with the gas and water mains, was carried away by the flood, which has stopped all foot and vehicular traffic. At Carmarthenshire the mountain torrents are carrying all before them. 1 rathe on tne Taa Valley Railway between Aberdare and Cardiff is stopped by floods.

The North mail, due at Aber stopped by floods. Ihe ISorth mail, due at Aber- dare at nine on Wednesday morning, had not arrived at half-past II. Passengers from Cardiff are blocked between Mountain Ash and Aberaman owing to serious landslips on the Great Western Railway near Mountain Ash. At Blakeney, Forest of Dean, 20 houses are submerged, and many slips are reported on the Great Western line. Lloyd's state that the Newcastle steamer Resolute, for Middles-borough, has been wrecked at the mouth of the Tees.

The crew and passengers were landed by the rocket apparatus. The sloop Hull packet, of Lynd, has gone ashore at Skegness and will be a total wreck. The crew were saved. The Cork steamer, Scott Harley, has gone ashore on Tramore Strand. The crew were saved by the lifeboat.

The Jeune Albert, Rochester to Bristol, drove ashore on Wednesday morning at Plymouth under the Citadel, and is fast breaking ap. The Norwegian schooner, Alf Hernosund. for Rio Janeiro, with deals, has gone ashore on Newcombe Sands, Lowestoft, and it is feared will become a total wreck. Both the masts are gone. Tne crew were landed by the lifeboat.

A Ramsgate telegram states that a southwesterly gale of extraordinary violence prevails there. The yacht Quinque, which foundered on Tuesday, was dashed against the pier and completely broken up. The watch-house of the harbour police was wrecked. In the afternoon a Boulogne hshins boat was observed drivine before the oalo anH she appeared to be in imminent danger of stranding on West Rocks a tug and lifeboat prepared to go out to her, but happily the Frenchman made the harbour in safety. Telegrams from Dorchester, Totnes, Trowbridge, and Camborne report continued heavy rains and floods, with loss of cattle and general interruption of railway and other traffic.

At Buckfastleigh the railway traffic was suspended. A later telegram from Axminster states that the floods are subsiding, but the mills in the town are still idle. A Sandgate message states that the South Eastern Railway sea wall was carried away for a distance of 60 yards by the gale on Wednesday. The train lines have been undermined, and the lifeboat house have been cut through, and" the tne traffic stopped. The roads to within 3ft.

of structure is in great danger. The foam from the sea fell in High-street like snow. A Tavistock telegram says that 2in. of rain ha3 fallen in 12 hours, and some districts are under water. The people have had to be rescued from the top windows vvma, neavy losses oi catue nave been experienced A Dover correspondent telegraphed on eveninf that a fierce snuhh-icpatorU- rro 1 has prevailed in the Channel all dav.

and the "full force of it has been felt at Dover. The greatest excitement has prevailed throughout the day in consequence of a fatal wreck which occurred in the morning, at the eastern end of the promenade, bv which two lives were lost, the captain of the vessel and an able seaman, the remainder of the crew being rescued by means of the rocket apparatus and life-lines. The doomed vessel was the Lief, a Norwegian crft with a nrew rf She was bound for Teignmouth with timber, and" nel on ednesday morning in the teeth of the terrible gale. Being unable to make headway her captain endeavoured to put into Dover for shelter. The vesssl would not answer to her anchors, and drifted rapidly on to the rocks at East Cliff.

It being seen that the vessel was doomed the lifeboat was prepared to put off, and the coastguards got the I rocket apparatus to work from the path on the East ntr. uetore tne lueboat was launched, however. the vessel commenced to break up, and the captain aim uue seaman uaa puc on in one or tne snip boats to endeavour to establish communication with the shore. Scarcely had the frail craft been launched when it was overturned by an enormous wave, and the captain was carried away and drowned. The feeling amongst the crowds who now lined the cliffs became dreadfully intense as two powerful-looking young fellows started to swim to shore to fulfil the unaccomplished mission of their captain.

They iui a uuie iime, ana when it was hoped they were succeeding a great roller overpowered one of them and he was drowned, Quite a gloom had now settled over the spectators. for it appeared that the men were to be drowned one by one whilst they stood helpless to assist. Just as the other daring swimmer escaped the rocket apparatus wa3 working, and the remainder of the crew were hauled ashore in the breeches buoy, the apparatus answering well. The mate was the last tu uo ttUU caeers were raisea t-, 1., 4-U a i i crowa as ne, in a very exhausted condition, was drawn ashore. They were conveyed to the Sailor's Home, after receiving temrarv ar.winn frnm Vh! ioTtle ZKnTZiZ the water to swim ashore were brothers named Eleffesen.

The captain's name was Dass. The vessel has been driven further in shore, and is breaking up The gale also did great damage to Dover promenade pier. Ihe heavy sea carried away some of the piles, leaving portions of the pier unsupDortable until some yards of decking fell into the sea" with a crash, the plank3 being torn, one by one, asunder by the force of the sea. The beach was strewn with wreckage. The damage to the pier is estimated at 600.

A number of casualties to shipping are reported, and in the town a carpenter's shop was blown down and other damage done. Late telegrams indicate the renewal of the storm in various parts of the country. THE SOHO MYSTERY. Eugene Robello, who is charged with the murder and robbery in connection with the death of Father Sequi, an Argentine priest, after a searching examination, denies the murder but confesses to the Proof- as far as the former charge is concerned, would be based on the alleged confession, and the forgery of the circular note of Father Sequi took place abroad. The charge, if ultimately gone into in this country, will be for larceny of the circular note mentioned.

THE FIRING ON A MAIL STEAMER. TWENTY-FIVE MEN KILLED. The steamer Ambriz, which was fired on by a Liberian gunboat, is of the registered tonnage of 2,130 tons. She was built in 1873 by Messrs. Royden and Sons, Liverpool, and is employed in the mail service between Liverpool and the West Coast of Africa.

Her crew comprise about 40 English and passengers. In the absence of any report from the captain it is impossible to state whether any of I the crew of the Ambriz are among those killed, but it is thought only the native boatmen were shot. It is believed the natives were killed as they were pro-; ceeding from the Ambriz to the shore. It is considered almost incredible that the Liberian gunboat would fire on the steamer, which at the time would have the majority of her passengers and crew on board. oe a good ifos, hi H- ibhc.

He believed in the political instincts of the British nation, and that nothing but a democratic form of Government would suit modern requirements, but he nevertheless thought it necessary to point out the perils of democracy and the dangers arising from holding a section of the community to be the people. In particular he pointed out the folly of endangering industrial production bv quarrels over the division of the i product of capital ana labour. THE PRIME MINISTER AT GLASGOW. Lord Rosebery, speaking at Glasgow on Wednesday night, said his answer to those who wished all subjects in the Liberal programme to be taken pari passu was that such a course could only result in no legislation being carried out. Next session the Government were pledged to deal with Welsh disestablishment, and he could only promise that when Parliamentary business permitted a similar measure as that introduced by Sir Charles Cameron would be submitted for Scotland.

The Government also intended to introduce the Local Veto Bill, and personally he was in favour of its including a limiting and controlling power in addition to total annihilation, but it was idle to talk of these things so long as the obstacle presented by the Houf of Lords existed. While he could have no part or parcel in leaving this country to the sole disposition of a single Chamber he was altogether opposed to a hereditary and partisan second Chamber. What the Government had at present to deal with was the adjustment of the relations of two Chambers which existed, so that the popular Chamber should be made predominant. They would proceed by resolution, and its efficacy depended almost entirely on the support it might receive from the nation at large. MR.

A. 0 A NOTTINGHAM. Speaking at Nottingham on Wednesday night, Itr. Arnold Morley, Postmaster-General, said he did not believe there was an atom of foundation for the suggestion of the rapid and over-hasty legislation. If the House of Lords was done away with the difficulty would have been to get legislation through the House of Commons at all.

The Government, notwithstanding the disadvantages, were able to show a very fair record, and the real reason they had been successful was because they were in earnest, and had the programme put forward by Mr. Chamberlain met with a chilling reception from other Unionist leaders it deserved careful consideration. NATIONAL UNION OF CONSERVATIVE ASSOCIATIONS. The National Union of Conservative Associations resumed their conference at Newcastle, on Wednesday. After negativing a proposal that it should henceforth devote two hours of its annual meeting to private discussion of policy and organisation, the union, on the motion of Sir Francis Powell, M.P., and Mr.

Bvrom Reed, strongly condemned the Government's proceedings with reference to volun- i tarv schools. Mr. Maitman Barry moved for a declaration in favour of legislation on the subject of the unemployed. The Chairman, Mr. James Rankin, M.P., thought the Town and County Councils might be empowered to assist emigration.

Colonel Howard incent, M.P., expressed himself strongly against our present toleration of alien pauper emigration. The resolution was carried. Another resolution in favour of the adoption of the referendum on questions of constitutional change was, on the motion of Sir E. Ashmead Bartlett, M.P., 1 adopted with three dissentients. Next, on the motion of Mr.

F. Lowe, Midlands Division, it was affirmed as desirable not only to criticise the Liberal policy, but more definitely to enunciate the Conservative policy more especially against the continuance of Ireland's over-representation. The last resolution carried was in favour of enfranchising widows and unmarried women ratepayers. THE QUEEN'S ARRIVAL AT WINDSOR. Ou Wednesday morning Her Maiesty with Princess Henry of Battenberg and suite arrived at Windsor by special train on the Great Western at 9 10 from Scotland, and were received at the Windsor terminus members of the Corporation.

The Queen, on alighting from the train, was conducted through the Royal wait- ing room, and on entering her carriage immediately I drove to the palace. The Castle guard was drawn up in front of Henry the Eighth's Gateway, and saluted the Royal party as they proceeded up the hill on their i way to the palace Notwithstanding the long and fatiguing journey from the north it was generally rftmark that the Queen, who wa- attired in Am mourning, was looking very well, and seems to be enjoying the best of health. FIRE AT DOUGLAS. At a quarter to two, on Wednesday morning, an alarming fire broke out in the workshop of Mr. T.

E. BLadcliffe, cabinet maker, Victoria-street, Douglas, situate in the midst of a valuable block of buildings. The fire brigade was summoned, and, owing to the fire being at the top of a three-storey building, it was with iT IZlZZa' rs. "a water. All the contents of the workshop were i destroyed, including valuable furniture and part uiiiicuitj Sui uUUCl, kUUuSu a uPijr ui the flooring and roof were damaged, and the water did a great amount of injury.

The origin of the fire is onknown. The damage is covered by insurance. PRESENTATION TO "WARDER EVANS." An interesting presentation was made at the Birmingham Police Court on Wednesday. In the presence of a large company of magistrates and other prominent personages a purse of gold was presented to ex-Warder Brown, who had over 40 years of aervice at Winson Green Gaol. Brown was the original Warder EvanB of Charles Reade's novel, It's Never Too Late to Mend." He often had offers to play the part of Evans in Reade's play, RIGHT OF WAY DISPUTE AT PORT ERIN.

An enthusiastic public meeting has been held at Port Erin to vindicate the public right of road through an estate known as Spaldrick, leading to Bradda Mount, which was closed against the public by the former proprietor, Mr. Adams, some years ago, and is now owned by Mr. Jennison, Belle Vue, Manchester. Speeches were delivered strongly affirming the public right of road, and resolutions vindicating the same were agreed to. STRUGGLE WITH POACHERS.

A large gang of poachers have been surprised near Prestbury, Cheshire, and after a severe struggle three were captured and a large quantity of game and many yards of netting were seized. The other poachers got away with their bags. They were coming in from the direction of Adlington Park, Mrs. Lech's estate. The men hailed from Macclesfield.

Several big gangs have been reported in the district during the past few weeks. AN OLD TRICK AGAIN SUCCESSFUL. Henry Watson was brought up on remand on Wednesday, at Oldham, charged with obtaining 6 5s. by trick from Clara Watkin.

He professed to have been sen rom the bank, and stating that there wan something wrong with the cheque obtained the money from the girl and decamped.
