RUMOURS CAUSE STAMFORD LABOUR SENSATION PARTY'S CONFIDENCE IN CANDIDATE -OFFICIAL STATEMENT A SENSATION has been caused in Labour circles in the Rutland and Stamford Division this week by the circulation of reports that the Divisional Executive Commtttee recently unanimously passed a resolution expressing a lack et confidence in the prospects of the prospective candidate, Mr. Arnold Gray, of winning the seat, but rescinded the resolution a fortnight later. The Leicez4ter Mail approached Divisional Party officials and was handed the following statement by Mr. J. Dunford, of Morcott, Divisional chairman, and Mr.

A. E. Naylor, of Ryhall, Divisional secretary. "Our attention having been drawn to reports of what is alleged to have taken place at our private meetings. we think, in order to clear the public mind, it perhaps is advisable to the facts as to what actually transpired mously that the resolution of the Executive Committee be not confirmed, and that the General Committee has the fullest confidence in Mr.

Arnold t.rav, our present prospective candidate. 'The Labcur Party, when it has any problems, faces up to them, and, being a democratic organisation, the Executive Committee abides by the majority decision, and will give Mr. Arnold Gray their fullest support. Our hopes of winning thc scat for Labour have not, as stated, undergone a change. hut we are as conftdeit as ever that this seat can and will be wrested from the forces of reaction which now hold it." ELECTORS' CONFIDENCE At an Executive Committee held in November a letter was read from Mr.

Gray apologising for non-attendance due to bad weather. This led to a discussion on his non-attendance at some advertised meetings. It was eventually decided to call a special meeting of the General Coinmittee on peeember 12, and ask Mr. Gray to attend to discuss this matter, as it was felt that by his non-attendance at public meetings he was in danger of losing the confidence of the electors through the Division, and a resolution to this effect was carried. As Mr.

Gray had a previous engagement on this date. the meeting was held on December 19, when, after a full, frank and amicable discussion, it was moved and carried TWO CAMPAIGNS Mr. Gray has twice opposed the return of the Member, Lord Willoughby de at the by-election in 1933, when he reduced the Conservative majority to 1,787, and again at the General Election in 1933, when the Conservative majority jumped to 5.5161. Mr. Gray lives at lngleby.

All have involved the keepers in a large amount of work and trouble, but there has -always been the final triumph of capture. But Trim, a ratel from Hadhramaut, South Arabia, has discovered a new and most provoking "escape," one that can never end with the ignominy of capture and cannot give the keepers any feeling of triumph. She escapes, and then when the keepers are busy trying to catch her, when they have assembled all their apparatus and are ready for the "chase," she calmly and most exasperatingly walks back into her cage. About a year ago Trim escaped in the orthodox manner, made straight for the keeper's kitchen and had a fine time until she was caught and taken back to her cage.

boxes, and while they were deciding on the best method of approach, Trim slipped back through the hole in the root and lay down quietly in her cage. The hole was quickly repaired, but the same thing occurred the next day and the next. In a few days' time, practicolly all the wire of the cage had been replaced. Finding that she could make no Impression on the tough new wire. Trim turned her attentions to the keeper, and now refuses to let him enter the cage Having foiled the little animal in her "escape" act the keepers are now considering a way in which friendly relations can be re-established.

CLAWS AND TEETH Her new method is delightfully simple. lintels belong to the badger species, and are active and vigorous little animals. Trim's long claws enable her to flit about her cage with perfect ease, and she soon found that her claws and teeth could make a considerable impression on the wire of her cage. A workman arrived to repair the damage and the keeper went back to his kitchen. He had hardly turned round when the cry was raised, Trim has escaped." and there she was silting on the root of the cage surveying the gardens.

Keepers arrived with nets and LEICESTER GIRL'S FRUIT FRAUD ON A GROCER In a case heard at Leicester Juvenile Court, yesterday, a a-year-old girl was charged with obtaining ilb. of apples, two oranges, and a bar of chocolate from a Braunstone-gate grocer.

THE QUEEN'S DRESS "The Queen has asked us to submit designs the embroidering of her Coronation dress and train, and we are hoping that the work will be done at the school," explained Lady Smith-Dorrien. "I have been busy getting out designs, and in those for the train we have included in the centre a large with a crown above it. The train itself will be made of royal purple velvet, the texture of which is so perfect that the firm where it is woven can turn it out only at the rate of three yards a week.

The design chosen will be carried out in geld and silver, and perhaps a Mite diamant. the dress to be worn by the Queen," continued Lady Smith-Dorrien, "will be made of white satin and will be embroidered all over in white gold and perhaps also a little diamante.

CALLS THREE TIMES TO DEAD DRIVER LEICESTER RAIL TRAGEDY ORCNER'S COMMENT ON DANGERS A FATALITY on the L.N.E.R. line near Western-road, Leineter, was the subject of an inquiry by the Leicester Coroner, Mr. E. G.

B. Fowler, and a jury at the Town Hall, yesterday. In the case of George Edwin Oakhill, aged 51, railway engine driver, of Ingram-terrace, Bulwell, Nottingham, the jury returned a verdict of "accidental death," attaching no blame to anyone. The Coroner said that about 2.30 a.m. Oakhill was killed by a train.

He was the driver of a goods train that had stopped because the signal was against him. FIREMAN'S STORY He got down from his engine to go across the line to a signal box about 60 yards away. A fast goods train on the other line knocked him down. He died almost at once. John E.

Whitcomhe. engine fireman, of Bulwell, said that when they were held up by a signal in I.eicester goods yard. Oakhill set off to the signal box on the opposite siflg of the line A fast goocta train passed on the other line. CALLED THREE TIMES When the signal went down for the train Lee looked for Oakhill and called three times. He took the train into the loop himself, and then found Oakhill lying on the track.

Oakhill was going to the signal-box to acquaint the signalman of his position. UNAWARE OF ACCIDENT It was stated that the driver and flre-' man of the other train did not know there had been an accident. The Coroner said this was the third fatality on the railway he had had to inquire into in the last few days. "1 am beginning to think," he said, "that, if things go on like this, walking on the railway line will become as dangerous as walking on the road." Australian Minister Criticises Britain The British Government was to-day attacked by Sir R. Parkhill, Australian Commonwealth Minister of Defence in a statement on the Empire Air Mail Scheme, says Reuter from Melbourne.

Although repeated requests." he said, "have been made to the British Government for details of Australian bases and of the air mail flying-boats they have still not been supplied, Delays dealing with the subject are not entirely due to the Commonwealth. "Unfair partisanship has done more to make the British air mail scheme unpopular in Australia than anything else." SINGAPORE DEFENCES The total personnel engaged in the forthcoming manoeuvres to test Singapore's defences will be 8,000, says Reuter. Coronation Needlewomen Begin Their Work THIRTY-FIVE of the finest needlewomen in the country have bben 1 chosen by Lady Smith-Dorrien, Principal of the Royal School of Needlework, for the Coronation work which will be carried out at the school during the next three months All of them are regularly employed there, and most of the work upon which they will be engaged will be exquisite embroidery work on the canopy to be held over the King and Queen during the anointing of the King's robe, and probably on the Queen's dress and train. The King's robe will be that which was made at the school in 1902 for King Edward VII and it is to be sent to the school shortly to be examined and repaired if necessary. It is of cloth of gold embroidered all over with coloured Tudor roses, green shamrocks, purple thistles, and silver eagles.

The first fox sprang out of a hedgerow and with half the pack close at his back, he dashed over the motor. congested Grantham main road. The remainder of the hounds were engaged with another fox, and for several minutes riders were at a less to know which hunt to join. The original I.

however, provided a first-rate gallop lasting nearly an hour, and he was then killed. at Ling's Gorse.
