BARRY DISTRICT TRADES' COUNCIL. The fortnightly meeting of the Barry and D's trict Trades' Council was held at the Victoria Hotel, Holton-road, Barry Dock, on Friday even- ing last, the President (Mr W. Harper) in the chair. Roll having been called, the minutes of an ordinary and special meeting were read and passed.—At the request of a member of the Coun- cil, a gentleman (a member of the Swansea Trades' Council) was allowed to remain during the proceedings. THE BURIAL BOARD ELECTIONS.—CANON ALLEN CENSURED. Reports from the various delegates of the vestry meetings held during the previous fortnight were received. Several members who had attended the Barry vestry meeting reported that Mr W. \V r Adams had been elected by 12 votes to Mr Patterson's 5 votes. Complaints were made of the haste with which the proceedings were con- ducted, and the chairman (the Rev Canon Allen) came in for a good share of censure. A delegate put a question to the meeting, and, in reply, it was stated that Mr Patterson was a pilot, and a firm trade unionist. The President also thought Mr Patterson a very suitable person for the post. -The School Board representative (Mr J. Rees) then gave his report, which was lucid and clear. LABOUR CANDIDATE FOR THE LOCAL BOARD ELECTION. It was proposed, seconded, and carried unani- mously, that Mr Gilead Brock be adopted as the labour candidate for the east ward for the Local Board election, the Council warmly pledging itself to do all in its power to ensure his return. A working committee of six members was then ap- pointed to meet on Saturday evening to draft Mr Brock's address. MR PATTERSON AND THE WEST WARD. A lively discussion took place as to whether the Council should adopt Mr Patterson as the labour candidate for the West Ward at the forthcoming Local Board election. Two motions wete placed before the meetings, one advocating Mr Patterson, the other being in favour of interviewing the whole of the candidates in order to ascertain their views, and then issue a manifesto. The former resolution was carried. DISGRACEFUL WANT OF ACTIVITY AMONGST UNIONISTS." Several members spoke of the disgraceful want of activity which had been shown on the part of Unionists at the vestry meeting recently held at Cadoxton. Each delegate who had not presented himself at the meeting endeavoured to show the reason why he so failed. A if APPLICATION. A request was made by a member that the Council would grant him permission to use the name of the Council in his address, several mem- bers spoke on the matter, but eventually it was decided to let the matter lie on the table. THE PROPOSED PRIZE DRAWING. Regarding the proposed prize drawing, it was stated that contributions had been promised by the following: -Messrs G. Garnett, W. Townsend, J. Williams (Cash Stores), W. L. Hughes (boy's suit of clothes value 10s.), J. Phillips, ironmon- ger (lamp), A. W. Newman, jeweller (clock or watch), R. O. Jones, Westminster Stores (2s. 6d. lb. of tea), J. A. Williams, grocer (Is.), Abbott, ironmonger (case of tea spoons and sugar tongs value 6P. ) Mr J. C. Meggitt promised to assist, but could not take part in a prize drawing, as he did not agree with the principle. Dr O'Donnell also promised to contribute, but had not decided whether to give a prize or a sum of money. ADIEU Great regret was expressed at the departure of one of the strongest members of the Council from the locality. This terminated a spirited meet- ing.
