On Tuesday evening last a very successful temperance meeting was held at Tabernacle Welsh Congregational Church, Barry Duck, under the presidency of the Rev Aaron Davie3, D D Among those present were several ministers of the district, including the Revs. T. Pandy John, L. Ton Evans, J. E. Jenkins, W. D Lee Cann, Ben Evans, (pastor of the Tabernacle), Tertius Phillips (U.K.A., Cardiff), and Messrs J. Cruise, b. B. Jones, W. J. Flowers, and J. P.

Evans after which Rev W. D. Lee Cann delivered a strong and stirring address on the evil surrounding the inhabitants of the district and the best means of combating the same. Mr J. Cruise delivered a report on the late licensing sessions and the work done by the temperance party in the district. After describing in detail the work done, the report snowed that the cost of engl-lging legal assistance to support their cause bad been JE60. The result had been successful, and out of 15 applications for new licenses, only two were granted, and those were quashed at Cardiff. At the cbse of bis report, Mr Cruise proposed the following resolution:- That this meeting rejoices in the fact that no new licence has been granted this year for the gale of driuk and further, that it wishes to ex- its gratitude to God that the district has been mpreifully spared from another and an additional source of misery, poverty, and crime, which are already appal, ing in our midst. The Rev L. Ton Evans seconded this in a lengthy and inspiring address, and the Rev. J. Tertius Phillips supported.—The resolution was then carried unanimously.—Mr S. R. Jones proposed votes of thanks to the chairman, the choir, and the pastor and deacons of Tabernacle for the kind loan of the chapel, which Mr J. P Panniers seconded, and this also was heartily approved.—Finally a hearty vote of thanks was tent to Councillor Henry Robinson, Cardiff, fllr the noble stand made by him before the Cardiff Watch Committee. t',
