NEW FACTORIES IN BELFAST.

RATES EXEMPTION DISCUSSED IN COUNCIL.

The exemption of two new factories in Belfast from rates was raised at Belfast Corporation meeting to-day on the minutes of the Finance Committee by Councillor E. Thompson, who asked the amount of money involved, and whether injustice was not being done to other manufacturers.

Councillor Lavery congratulated the Finance Committee on their action, and said that one of the new factories would fill a great want in the provision of perambulators. Ashbins were very scarce in Belfast and elsewhere, and he thought the opportunity presented itself for the establishment of a factory to manufacture these articles. He went on to refer to industrial development.

Councillor Clark Scott said the matter of industrial development had been before the Labour Party's Conference on Saturday, when reference was made to the many new industries in Eire. Any new industries started in Belfast should have all encouragement.

The minutes were passed.

He added that every man was needed in the struggle, and he urged them if their job was not essential to leave it and give the armed forces the benefit of their service.

THE ARMY CADET FORCE.

WAR CERTIFICATE "A."

Major-General Viscount Bridgeman, D.S.O., M.C., Director-General of the Home Guard and Territorial Army who visited Northern Ireland last week, commented very favourably on the value of War Certificate "A" when he inspected R.U.R. units of the Army Cadet Force in Belfast.

Since the summer camping season, during which about 2,000 cadets were in camp under service conditions, winter training programmes have been commenced in A.C.F. units all over N. Ireland.

Already more than 200 members of the Force in Northern Ireland have passed the examination for Part 1 (Individual) of War Certificate "A" and 26 have passed Part II (Section Leading).

In the near future it is proposed to arrange courses of instruction for officers and cadets under Army supervision, and further examinations for the two parts of War Certificate "A" will be held at suitable intervals The military object of the A.C.F. is pre-entry training and Part 1 of the certificate is laid down as the basic training.

In short space of time the Army Cadet Force has achieved an enormous expansion and its strength is now about 200,000 cadets in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. All Army Cadet units in the North are now open to receive more recruits.

PRESS GALA AT PORTADOWN.

TURN HUNDREDS AWAY

Hundreds of people were unable to gain admission to the Regal Cinema, Portadown, on Friday night when Press Gala was presented at a midnight matinee.

The success was largely due to the excellent arrangements of the manager of the cinema, Mr S. Montgomery, and his staff, who had the co-operation of the managers and staffs of the other cinemas in the town.

The stage programme was presented by "Kenny and his Ulster Beauties," who gave another of their delightful shows in which Kenny, Lila, Eva, Yvonne, Joan, Myrna, Melba, Doris, Ethel, Barbara and the Rea Twins took part.

General Film Distributors presented the film "Hold That Ghost," featuring Abbott and Costello. The thanks of the Gala Committee are due to the directors of the Regal for having placed the theatre at their disposal

VIEWS ON SPECIAL POWERS ACT.

LABOUR DISCUSSION.

A resolution calling for the setting up by the Executive Council of a Northern Ireland Council of Civil Liberties to investigate the application of the Special Powers Act conditions in Northern Ireland jails, and "other cases of the restriction of freedom of speech, association assembly, and of the Press," was before the Northern Ireland Labour Party's conference in Belfast on Sunday.

Mr. J. Miller (South Belfast Labour Party), moving the resolution, said it had come before the conference in various forms for many years. They demanded the bringing to trial of all arrested people.

Mr. J. Boyle (South Belfast Labour Party), seconding, said it was a quite practicable resolution. Nothing could excuse the continuance of the Special Powers Act.

The Chairman said the Executive could not be responsible for the setting up of a Council of Civil Liberties, but they were prepared to investigate individual cases. It would be a physical impossibility to carry out the resolution.

Mr. J. M'Keown (A.T. and G.W.U.) said he was unable to support the resolution. They were faced in Northern Ireland with people with the avowed purpose of upsetting the Constitution, and if they had a Labour Government they would have to pass a Special Powers Act. Policemen had been assassinated in the streets of Belfast, and there was no great outcry against that.

Mr. J. Anderson (East Belfast Labour Party) said the Special Powers Act had turned Catholics into rebels.

The Chairman said the setting up of a Council of Civil Liberties was not a job for the Executive Council, and the resolution would not be implemented if passed.

The resolution was carried by a majority.

PRISONER COMES HOME ALONE.

Only one repatriated prisoner was on the steamer arriving at Larne this morning -- L./Corporal James Faulkener (25), Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, of Castlemellon, Donemana, Co. Tyrone.

The Mayor of Larne (Councillor John Burton) was at the gangway, and the lance-corporal was also greeted by Army and Navy officers.

L/Corporal James Faulkener, of Tullyard, Donemana, Co. Tyrone, wounded in Belgium, May, 1940, who arrived in Belfast to-day.

L./Corporal Faulkener, who is a regular soldier with six years' service, was taken prisoner in Belgium 3½ years ago. After being surrounded he and several companions tried to make a break for it, but he was hit by machine-gun bullets in the right leg. He had the limb amputated in Belgium.

He is breaking his journey home by a call on cousins at Station House, Whiteabbey.

L./Corporal Faulkener was given tea and cakes in the train before leaving for Belfast.

THE L.M.S. CANTEEN.

The value of the L.M.S. Canteen and Rest Room at York Road, Belfast, was never more evident than in its service to the repatriated prisoners on their arrival at that station. All the returned men have been served there with refreshments, chocolates and cigarettes, and given a cordial welcome.

NO BERTHS.

Ten repatriated prisoners who crossed from Heysham to Belfast had to sit up on the boat throughout the voyage, being unable to get sleeping berths.

An official told the "Belfast Telegraph" that when the men arrived on board they discovered that all the berths had been booked, and that there was a waiting list. Not one of the men could get sleeping accommodation, and eventually they were taken to the first-class lounge and provided with armchairs.

The repatriates, it was pointed out, were regarded by the military authorities as being fit to travel, but they do not have an opportunity of obtaining berths before they embark.

The Chairman said no notification had been received of their return in time to meet them on arrival, but Mr. J. Johnston, M.P., with the town clerk and himself, would visit the men and convey the hearty welcome of the townspeople.

Continuing, the Chairman said he was sure the Council would like to congratulate the father of Capt. A. Herbert, R.A.M.C., who had been posthumously awarded the M.C., whilst at the same time they regretted that Capt. Herbert bravery had cost him his life.

BELFAST PADRE'S WIDE-RANGE JOB

IN U.S. ARMY AIR CORPS.

The many friends in Belfast of Rev. J. Edwin Orr, M.A., B.D., Th.D., will be glad to learn news of his well-being contained in a letter to Mr. J. Herbert Ireland, secretary of the City Y.M.C.A.

Rev. Mr. Orr. since last heard from, has been studying at North-Western University, where he succeeded in obtaining his theological degrees. Now he is chaplain to the U.S. Army Air Corps, and in his letter he states:

"A great deal of my time is taken up with problems which the men bring to me -- marital, family and personal problems and organisational difficulties. A sense of humour is useful, for there is a great deal of comedy mixed with tragedy and much mediocrity mixed with things of absorbing interest.

"I have flown down into the woods to hold a bivouac service for coloured troops; I have broken the news of a pilot's death to his young wife; I have married more couples than I can count; I have listened to more tales of woe than you could imagine, and I have patiently waded through official red-tape of various hues from crimson to scarlet; I have written letters and made out reports and stood inspection times without number; I have laughed myself sore as well as swallowed an occasional lump in the throat. But I like it. I never liked anything better. I would not miss the experience of living for Christ in the Army for all the comforts of civilian society. But I need your prayer help."

He says he has no set plans for the future, but feels led at present to return to England after the war.

Rev. Mr. Orr is a native of Ormeau Road, Belfast.

SMUGGLING RING IN ULSTER.

BOOT NAILS CASE.

That there is in Northern Ireland a smuggling ring, a well organised business with poor people as tools, was the view expressed by Major M'Callum, R.M., at the Belfast Summons Court to-day, when he had before him Kathleen Connolly, Elizabeth Street, and Lily M'Ilhone, Majorca Street, Belfast, described as persistent offenders, were charged with concealing 241bs. of boot tingles (nails), and dealing in prohibited goods.

They were fined 3 each. A further fine of 3 each was imposed for having dealt in 2½ stones of boot tingles. Lily M'Ilhone was fined 3 for having concealed 8lbs. of boot tacks, and Margaret Kane, Baker Street, was fined 3 for having concealed 7lbs. of tacks.
