DEATH OF A POPULAR WELSH SOPRANO

We regret to announce the death of Mrs Maggie Jones-Morewood, the well-known Welsh soprano. The sad event took place early on Tuesday morning, at 5, Coldstream-terrace, Cardiff, and was the culmination of a short illness which commenced on Sunday, the cause of death being syncope. Dr. M'Gregor and Dr. Greener were in constant attendance on the sufferer, but their efforts proved unavailing. The deceased was the daughter of the late Mr David Jones, manager of the Swansea and South Wales Tin-plate Work, Llanelly, and her mother survives her. Her husband is Mr J. Jones, manager for Messrs Walker and Hall, wholesale silversmith, St. Mary-street, Cardiff, and she leaves a family of two young children. Mrs Jones-Morewood had had a most successful career and occupied a prominent position in Welsh musical circles. She studied under Mr William Shakspeare at the Royal Academy where she took her degrees and medal. She fulfilled engagements in some of the principal musical events in the Principality, and for some time played leading parts in the Turner Opera Company. The interment will take place at the New Cemetery, Cardiff, to-day (Friday), at three o'clock.

FIRES IN LONDON

A fire broke out in Shoe-lane, City, at 9.30 on Monday night, and soon resulted in the complete destruction of the six-floored warehouse of Messrs Walker and Hall, silversmiths, platers, and cutlers, whose premises extend to the Holborn-viaduct, and have a frontage in that thoroughfare. It is supposed that the fire was preceded by an explosion of gas. At the hour mentioned the entire lower portion of the warehouse enveloped in flames. The warehouse was filled with property of value, and one of the earliest efforts of members of the brigade assisted by the members of the London Salvage Corps under Captain Fox was to remove from danger stocks of silver plate from the floors which had so far been unattacked, and to pile these masses of glistening wealth in the narrow roadway. There was no chance of tho property being purloined, for there was in attendance a very strong force of the City police. Commander Wells, early apprised of the fire, hurried in evening dress from the Southward headquarters to the scene of the disaster in a hose-van. The chief officer, in a pitiless storm of rain, changed from dinner attire to the garb of a fireman, under the walls of the blazing building with the rapidity of a lightning artiste, and was drenched to the skin in the process. It was obvious from the first that the main building, belonging to Messrs Walker and Hall, was doomed; but under admirable direction, tho brigade succeeded in a measure In defeating extension. The warehouse of Messrs Walker and Hall has been completely gutted, and there is other serious damage to neighbouring structures.
