LIVING IN THE CLOUDS." I NEATH REGISTRAR AND I CLYDACH GROCER. At Neath Bankruptcy Court on Tuesday, J. T. Jones, grocer, Civdaeh, appeared for his adjourned examination. The Official Receiver said that debtor had submitted amended accounts and he had no further questions to ask. Mr. R. T. Jones asked that the examina- tion ba closed. Debtor, he said, had dis- closed the whole of his affairs as far as he possibly coiild. Registrar I am glad you said As far as possible." It has beeu very unsatisfactory. Apparently this gentleman, wbilst going on with his business, has been living m the clouds. He was no more fit for business than a boy in the streets, and if he comes 'before the judge for his discharge I hope it will be suspended for several years. The examination was closed.

lCHIEF OF THE MINE SWEEPERSI
CHIEF OF THE MINE- SWEEPERS. CAPT. HENEAGE MEN- TiOhicD ï J\J | "FREQUENTLY UNDER HEAVY FIRE." Captain A. W. Heneage, M. V. O., of Park L Breos, near Swansea, is amongst the ofifcers who have been commended for ser- vice in action by Vice-Admiral de Robeck, commanding the British Fleet in the opera- tions against the Dardanelles, who has sent to his Majesty's Government a stirring ac- count of the landing of the troops. Captain Keneage has been. specially commended fori organising and training the mine-sweepers. He joined his ship, H. M.S. Albion, when the Grand Fleet was mobilised en the out- break of the war, and the next Swansea heard of him -was that his ship was at the! Dardanelles engaged with others in deeds that will live in history, for the landing of i the troops on the peninsula of Gallipoli has never been surpassed for courage and dar- ing. The mine-sweeping, especially in the Narrows, lias been arduous and dangerous work. Capt. Keneage, Special reference is made in Vice-Admiral de Robeek's report to Captain Heneage in the following passage — On the 25th and 26th, Wolverine (Com- mander 0. J. Prentis) (killed in action), Scorpion (Lieutenant-Commander, now. Commander, A. B. Cunningham), Renard (Lieutenant-Commander L. G. B. A. Campbell), Grampus (Lieutenant-Comman- der R. Bacchus), Pinchcr (Lieutenant- Commander H. kV. Wyld), and Rattle- ¡ snake (Lieutenant-Commander P. G. ) Wodehouse) carried out mine-sweeping i operations under Caption Heneage inside J the Dardanelles in a most satisfactory manner, being frequently under heavy fire. Captain Algernon Walker Heneac<- P. X., M.V.O., is 44 years of age and the nephew of the late Mr. Graham Vivian, the bulk of whose fortune he inherited a few years ago when he and his family came to reside in this cliskict. Entering the Royal Navy in 1886 he was second in command of the Naval Division in defence of Ladysmith and war; mentioned in dispatches. During his residence at Park le Breos, Captain Hene- aze has proved immensely popular in Swan- ea, and at the last annual meeting of the Swansea Conservative Association was ap- pointed chairman of the Swansea Conser- vative Association. Mrs. Heneage, during her husband's absence on active service, has devoted her energies for the successful issue rf the war, especially by collecting litera- ture, etc., for the mine-sweepers.

Six Victoria Crosses are announced as having bsen won by naval men, fiva of them being for the historic landing at V Beach in CaUipoli, and two of these being for midshipmen. awards are based on recommendations contained in a dispatch from Admiral de Robeck, issued rc! the Press Bureau on Monday night, dealing with the operations carried en April 25-26th. Among the many stories of bravery and incomparable courage told in the dispatch the story of the commaJider, two mid- shipmen and two seamen of the River Clyde is the most thrilling. All five have received the Victoria Cross. They are mentioned in the concluding para- graphs of the Admiral's dispatch, in which he sa.ys The great traditions cf his Majesty's N a vv weJl wdl maintained, and the. list of names sulffnitted of necessity lacks those of many officers and men who performed gallant deeds unobserved and therefore unnoted. "This standard was high, and if I sl)c-cally mention one particular action it is that oi Commander Cnwiin and the two young offi- cers and two seamen who assisted him in the work of establishing communication be- tween River Clyde and the beach." These five heroes head the list of the Admiral's "Special Recommendations as follow :— < Commander Edward Unwin, R.N.. While in River Clyde, absfcivnig that the lighters which were to form the bridge to the shore had broken adrift, Commander Unwin left the ship and under a murdetocis fire attempted to get the lighters into posi- tion. He worked on until, suffering from the effects of cold and immersion, be v.as obliged to return to the sJlÎp, where he was wrapped up m blankets. Having in some degree recovered, he returned to his work against the doctor s order and completed it. He was later ugain attended by the doc- tor for three abrasions caused 1 y billets, after which he lonce more left the l ip, tillis time in a liiefooat, to save swue wounded men who were lying in shallow water near the beach. He continued at this heroic labour under continuous fire, until forced to stop through pure physical exhaustion. Midshipman George L. Drewry, R.ft.R. I Assisted Commander UruVin ao the work I of securing tho lighters under heavy nfie and Maxim i r c. He was wounded in the head, but continued his work and twice subse- quently attempt.ed to swim from lighter to lighter with a line. Midshipman Drewry will be 21 years old in November next, and lias previously had many startling adventures. At the age of 13 he was picked up unconscious in the road after being knocked down by a motor-car. Then, at the age of 15, when in the mer- chant service, he fell overboard from aloft into the sea, and was rescued by the ship's mate. Two years later he was shipwrecked off Cape Horn, and was for fourteen day.sa ca«tawav on Hermit Islrnd. Midshipman Wilfred St. A. Mai Jason, R.N. Also assisted Commander Unwin, and after Midshipman Drewry had failed from exhaustion to get a line from lighter to lighter, he swam with it himself and suc- ceeded. The line subsequently broke, and he afterwards made two further but unsuc- cessful attempts at. 'I-ills self-imposed task. Able-Seaman William Charles Williams, O.N. Hekl en to a line in the water for over an hour under heavy fire, until killed. Seaman R.N.R. Csorge McKenzio I Samson. Worked on a lighter all day under fire, attending wounded and getting out lines. Two others who helped in ccunection with the River Clyde are mentioned, and both have been awarded the Distinguished Service Order. One is lieutenant John A. V. Morse, R. N w ho assisted to secure the lighters at the bowB of the River Clyde under a heavy fire, and who was vesi-y throughout the 26th and 2bth at V beach. n H&raic Surgeon. u 1 1 I auiigeon r. i>tveny, JV-N., attacneci to the Royal Naval Air Service, is the other. Although wounded in th? fo-ot on the morn- ing of the 25th in the River Clyde lie re- mained on the ship until the morning of the 27th. During that time he attended 750 wounded men, although in great pain and nimble to walk, during the last twenty-four hours. Four petty officers and an ordinary sea- man have received the Conspicuous Gal- latttry Medal for the dseds iu connection with the liner Clyde. Other Gallant Middies. I Ten other midshipmen are mentioned in the Admiral's dispatch under the heading of "special recommendation," and ten others are recommended for service in action. The first ten have been awarded the Dis- tinguished Service Cross, and their names Rupert Edward Maximilian Bethume, R.X. (Inflexible), Eric Giioff de Wet, R.N. (London), Charles Wilfred Or oxford R.N.R,. (Queen), Cecil Aubrey Lawson Mansergh, R.N. (Queem), Alfred Martyn Williams, R.N. (Fiuryalus), Hubert Mal- colm Wilsou, RuN.

Tn the "London Gazette" it is announced that, for sendees in operations in the 'Dar- danelles prior to April 25-26, the Distin- guished Service Cross has been awarded to the following midshipmen:—J.

"ABSOLUTE CONTEMPT FOR DEATH." GLOWING TRIBUTE TO THE I "ANZAC" MEN. Points uf the Admiral's dispatch are as I follow — "Such actiols as the storming of the Sed dul Bahr position by the 29th Division must live in history for ever; innumerable; (ieeds of heroism and .taring were per- formed; the gallantry and absolute con- tempt of death displayed alone made the operations possible. "At Gaba Tepe the iandi-n, and dash of the Australia^ Brigade for the cliffs was magnificent—nothing could stop such men. j The Australian and New Zealand Army Corp in this their very first battle set a standard as high as that of any army in history, and one of which their country- men have every reason to be prottd. "It is impossible to exalt too highly the service rendered by the 1st Battalion of Lancashire FiirriHers in the storming of the beach (U. W.) the dash and gal- lantry displayed were superb. "The troops on board the Implacable were all landed by 7 a.m. without any casualties.

TO COT THE TIMS I ?? E? ??b 6M??& i, OFF. ■■■ ■ IMPORTANCE OF SUVLA BAY, JUNCTION WITH OUR LEFT WING. ATHENS, August, 15th (Received yesterday). The new successful landing on the Galli- poli Peninsula at Siivia Bay (on the west coast of the peninsula, 20 miles N. of the. entfarice to tha-Dardinelles), and the manner m which it was effected, cannot fail to exer- cise a moral effect on the enemy. The landing took place on the foreshore in front of the Salt Lake. Only a small obser- vation force of Turks was ori the spot, the Tok,s having been led by recent activities and reports to concentrate their forces on the Asiatic side of the Dardanelles and at Smyrna, where they thought attacks were probable. Our whole landing force, with its ammunition, baggage, and artillery, reached the shore practically without opposition, and with only very few casualties. The force immediately advanced, and quickly seized positions which it was planned should be taken. There strong entrenched positions were organised, the right wing was thrown out, and a junction effected with the left wing of our forces established before Sari Bair. Our new positions 1- Threaten the Turks' Communications I by land with the extremity of the peninsula. The enemy eventually brought up forces to attack the -newly-landed troops, but these were easily repuiijed with serious loss.

An official' communique issued in Con- stantinople to-day says:— On the Dardanelles front the enemy, who has landed fresh divisions since August 6th and August 7th, attacked our positions with them. 'i-hanks to the heroic assistance of our troops aind our counter-aitacks tilio enemy achieved no result. In the district of Afiafarta, on Aufust 15th, we repulsed an attack. We captured one captain, some soldiers, two machine- guns, and a quantity of rifles. Off Ari Burnii an enemy torpedo boat was hit by our artillery. Near Seddul Babr (cn our right wing) we exploded a mine two to three metres before the enemy's trenches, by which a. hostile position with-bomb throwers and wire ob- stacles was wrecked. The enemy replied all might with an un- successful waste of ammunition. On the other fronts there is nothing to report.
