    WELCOOME HOME ..TO M R. W. D. -. BENNESSY. Mr. W. M. Hennessy, the' well known bread manufacturer of Bruns wick, who has just returned from a trip to Europe, was tendered a welcome home by his employes and a number of friends at the Mechanics' Institute, Sydney road, on Tuesday evening, when there was a good attendance. iMr. Barrett (the managing foreman) presided, supported by Mr. -D. V. Hennessy, M.L.A., Mr. J. J. Hennessy and Mr. N. Hennessy. After Mr. Brookes. Peters had shaken things up by singing " While we were marching to Georgia," Mr. W M. Hennessy, the guest, of the evening, entered the hall-amiid loud: cheering, those present rising from their. seats and singing "For; he's a jolly good fellow," with hurrahs which were again and again renewed. The Chairman then rose and,. pro posed " The King," which was well re ceived.. The Chairman said the next toast he had to propose was the toast' of 'the evening-" The health of. their ,guest, Mr. W. -M. Hennessy.''. (Applause.) In proposing the toast of his health he was very pleased to see him, in good health on his return from Europe, after being seven months away. Mr. Hen nessy had well-earned his trip, and no doubt after. seeing the sights of the world he would be able to, tell them what be.had seen, for he was a keen observer. Mr. Hennessy was .a young man, and he was glad he had beeh able to see the wide wide world. On beJalf of the employes who had met .tiere thiat night to do him honor, he wished Mr. W. M. Hennessy and his wife health and prosperity. (Applause.) Speaking for himhself, he was pleased to be there that evening and presides over that meeting, and see *so many of- thie asso. ciates and employes, and so many of the friends attached to Mr. fHennessy. The business was a live concern, and no doubt Mr.- Hennessy had come back withnew ideas. He hoped the holiday had done him good. (Applause.) Mir. Cosney then read an address to Mr. - W. M. - Hennessy from. his em ployes,' congratulatin'g him upon-. his safe return, and wishing him .and - Mrs. Hennessy happiness and prosperity.. Mr.. W. dl, Hennessy, who ivas loudly cheered, in replying, thanked the chair man and the employes for their kind wishes towards himself. He considered that any man with any progressiveness at all should see something of the world,.even if he only went as far as London. Besides England, Ireland aid Scotland, he had been to Italy, Ger many and Sweden, parts of Belgium, and America, but he must say he had been somewhat, disappointed as regards his own trade. In machinery one uight learn much, but as regArds the baking trade he considered that Mel bourne held its own with any part of the world. There were establishments adinig a greater business, but the trade' was different altogether, and was mostly in the wholesale trade, supplying nothing else but shops. A man might do the same in Melbourne, but he thought Melbourne was- not ripe for that yet, He could not say the bread in the old country was any better than it was in Melbourne and Sydney; and they had the same trouble with the yeast there as here. The best bread he came across was in Germany and Italy ; but the reason of this was that it was made in such small loaves. With regard to machinery, he did not approve of it for bread making, and considered it tookt the life out of it, and lie would not care to introdece it into Melbourne. Of course, one could only get a bird's-eye view of such places in the time at his disposal. As regards the Continent, he should certainly say London, and would put it before the world as regards its style, its business, and the marvellous way the traffic was carried out. Then there were the underground railways and two penny tubes; and he had felt proud to say that he was a Britisher. They could have America for him; and lihe would put Paris next to London. In con clusion, Mr Hennessy said he knew his business was safe in the hands of his brother when he handed him the keys, and it never struck him about business until he got to Sydney. The Chairman next proposed ' The health of 3ir D. V. Hennessy, Ml.L.A." Mr D. V. Hennessy, M.L.A., in re plying, returned the compliment by pro. posing the health of " The Employes," coupled with the name of Mr Barrett. He said his brother knew when depart ing that every man had his post, and that hlie would do his duty. (Applause.) As far as the Hiennessys were con cerned, froil the father downwardsj no man except a malcontent could say he had not been fairly treated as between man and man. His brother, he believed, would find the whole of the business within his grasp in an hour or so. As regards legislation, the State Parliament was still the Parlianiment of ithe people, and had to make the lot of the masses bettei if it could, and they would shortly have the Factories Act before them. As an employer of labour, if they searched the country through they would not find a fairer advocate than himself. The Factories Act aas on its trial-all new legislation was and any man who wanted to be fair to his employes would have to give and take. \With regard to the baking trade, they knew the way things were cut up, but the great curse was that some of the employers were trying to grind the men down. fhowever, they knew that his brother would do a fair thing towards the men. (hear, hear.) HLIe trusted every employe would do his duty in the future ashe had done in the past. (Ap plause.) The Chairnoan then gave the " Dis tinguisled Visitcrs," to wlich Mr Jor dani, Mr Inglis, Mr lHarris, and iMr Brookes Peters, of theVictria Pottery, responded.. iMr Peters said he had known three generations of the Hen stesy.family, and they were all good friends; Mir D. V. Hennersy, in par ticular, was an adrodate of the old-age pensions, and he intended to go for one. (Laughter and applause.) During the evening songs were sung by - Messrs E, Makin, Brookes Peters, 1

    Mahon, P. Hines, McMahon, Mackay. 'Ncrman Hennessy, ard Taylor; an ac 'robatic song and dance was given by M~r. Conlan; while recitations were given by Messrs. Hart, Marks, and Gerald Massey (encored). The proceedings terminated with " Auld Lang Syne." Mr AM. Gargan supplied refreshments in his well-known style.

    AN IMPUDENT BURGLAR.
    James Campbell, 28 years of age,
    was charged with having been on the
    premises of William M. Heniiessy
    without lawful exense.
    'William Morris Hennessy, baker,
    living at Marine Parade, said his
    house was a two-story brick building,
    and was isolated from other houses by
    vacant land.
    i Robert, -Booth, the occupier :6f th6 '
    nearest house to Mr. Hennessy, said
    he saw: accused at about 8 o'clock on
    the evening of. 2Sth inst., .place a
    ladder against the front, balcony of
    J)r. Hennessy's house and climb up.
    Wjtness' ran , over, and stood at the
    foot of the ladder.. When accused
    saw witness he came down the ladder
    and was seized and held on the
    ground. One of Mr... Hennessy's
    drivers came to witness's 'assistances
    and together they held the man until
    the police arrived.' ' Accused had a
    revolver in his* pocket, which was
    taken from him.
    Patrick Power, a driver for Mr:
    Hennessy, gave similar evidence. Ac
    cused said it was hard luck being
    caught after he had carried the ladder
    nearly a mile.
    . Senior - constable Lockhart, who
    with Plain-clothes Constable White
    took accused in charge, gave evidence
    that the latter said he had carried the
    ladder so far because he was looking
    for a.' likely ' house. '
    I Plain-clothes Constable White said
    that ?when questioned as to where he :
    had been living, accused said 'No,
    X opep air.' - A picklock arid- khife
    were in his possession as well as the
    revolver. '
    In answer to the bench accused said
    he had entered the house ' as he had
    to live somehow.'
    A sentence of six months' imprison
    ment 'was imposed.
