Conflict broke out in Barcelona on May 4 between the Government supporters and labour syndicalists.

Senor Vasquez, representing the paper Solidaridad Obrera (Workmen's Solidarity) admitted that the Government were responsible for the riots in Malaga in May last year. He told them that his paper had then asked them to stop, and they had obeyed. Today nobody listened to him, he said.

A special article dealing with the history of Minster Abbey will appear in the Catholic Herald next week.
