THE NEW BARRY DOCK HOTEL —close to Barry Dock Station-will be shortly opened by Messrs. R. P. Culley and Co., of Cardiff, and from its exceptionally advantageous position will doubtless prove a great convenience to those engaged in Barry Dock shipping. Judging from the success that has hitherto attended the various undertakings of Messrs. R. P. Culley and Co., there is no doubt that the management of the new hotel will be all that can be desired.
CHURCH EXTENSION. meeting of those in- terested in the erection of an Anglican church in the Holton district, was held last night, at 7.30, in a room kindly lent for the purpose by Mr. Bray, Holton-road. The Rev. E. Morris presided. The plan of the pro- posed church was laid before the meeting, and it was decided to write the ccntractor (Mr. Harbrow) asking him what would be the cost of having a schoolroom built alongside the church. A committee was also appointed to arrange a concert in aid of the funds, and the secretary was instructed to write to the School Board for permission to hold a concert at the Cadoxton School. A further meeting in connection with the erection of the Holton Church will be held at the Rectory, Cadoxton, at 7.30 p.m. on Thursday week.

REMARKABLE INCIDENT. rather curious inci- dent in connection with the recent snowstorm has come under our notice. Mr. Morgan Howell, of Colebrook Farm, lost one of his lambs last Monday night week in the terrible snowfall. The lamb was found yesterday half hidden by a snow-drift, and as life did not appear to be quite extinct, it was taken to the house and some milk given to it. The lamb is now to all appearances quite well: and is not a bit the worse for its 10 days withdrawal from the outer world.
THE PROPOSED PUBLIC LIBRARY. —By adopting the Free Libraries Act (says the versatile writer "Spinnaker Boon" the Barryites have set a noble example to Penarth. It is to be hoped, however, that the supporters of the movement will not be in too great a hurry to start their lending and reference library, or swallow up their necessarily limited income in the erection of a building which may in a few years prove inadequate for its purpose. Let them conserve their funds, and once they have sufficient means to purchase a good collection of books the success of the venture is certain.
TRADE UNIONISM. meeting of the Cadoxton Federated Trades' Unionists was held at the Picnic Hall, Cadoxton, Tuesday evening at eight o'clock. The proceedings were entirely of a private nature.

We trust that this enterprise will be duly rewarded by the general public largely extending their patronage to Mr. Martin.

THE LATE STORM. —Of the four roadways leading to the viUage three were completely blocked up with < he drifting snow, especially those that are transverse to the direction in which the storm swept its course. Great inconvenience was felt by the inhabitants in not being supplied with the usual commodities that are weekly vended throughout the neighbourhood, as all approach to the village by vehicular conveyance was an utter impossibility until the latter part of the week, when a means of ingress was made from the direction of Barry by a paAy of men selected for the purpose of clearing the snow. Considerable losses were sustained by farmers in this locality by this sudden and extreme change in the weather, the exposure of the ewes and tender lambs causing many to succumb to its almost Arctic severity. Several cases of severe sickness can be traced to the same cause.
OUR POSTMAN. word for our postman may not be out of place. Through storm and sunshine, heat and cold, frost and snow, the postman is always at his post of duty, bravely contending with the elements, when unpropitious, to carry the precious missives of joy and sorrow to our homes. Our postman did his duty right gallantly well. Perhaps more forbearance exercised on his being occasionally a little after time, which is a very rare occurrence, and more consideration for his welfare at the festive sceson, which comes but once a year," would be better recognition of his ser- vices than could possibly be done by any eulogistic terms of praise in the columns of THE STAR.
A NEW ROAD. correspondent informs us that on Friday, the 13th iust., Major-General Lee, Messrs. W. W. Nell (Wenvoe), P. Evans, land agent (Wenvoe), T. Smith, New Wallace Farm (guardian of Wenvoe), O. Williams (St. Lythan's), R. E. Lewis (surveyor), and O. Thomas (Wenvoe) met to consider the necessity of repairing the old road or of making a new road from Wenvoe village to the new siding on the Barry Rail- way. It was decided to lay the matter before the highway board meeting at St. Nicholas.

THE ILLNESS OF Mn. JOHN MORRIS. — On enquiry at Penarth on Monday a reporter of the SOUTH WALES STAR was informed that Mr. John Morris, the magistrates' clerk, who has been seriously ill for some little time, was gradually regaining strength, although it is improbable that he will be able to leave his bed for two or three months.
SALE OF A WRECK. —On Monday Messrs. Short and Dunn offered for public competition on the Penarth beach the wrecked hull of the French schooner Anne, together with her spars and material, after which the cargo, consisting of about 150 tons of Mon- mouthshire coal, shipped by Messrs. John Vipond and Co., was disposed of. The schooner was purchased by Mr. Lane, of Roath, for 158. and the coal realised the high price of 9s.

D. Evans, Duffryn Villa, being appointed secretary, and Mr. S. F. Lewis, Bronllwyn Villa, treasurer.

TEMPERANCE MEETING. —An entertainment in connection with the temperance cause was held at the Wesleyan Chapel on Thursday evening, when the Rev. J. Roberts, Cardiff, presided.

Numerous recitations, dialogues, solos, duets, trios, quartettes, and choruses, under the leadership of Mr. Lougher, were admirably given. The proceedings were very interesting and exceedingly lively through- out, thanks to the witty and pithy remarks of the chairman. A hearty vote of thanks was accorded to Mr. Roberts for coming all the way from Cardiff through such weather in order to be present on the occasion. A similar compliment was paid to the friends from Penmark, Lambethery, and all those who had helped in making the meeting a success. Miss C. Lougher acted as accompanist.

AN ENGINEER DROWNED —On Thursday night of last week, between twelve and one o'clock, a man named James Hedley, of Belfast, who had been third engineer of the steamship Millwall, loading at Penarth Dock, was drowned. It appears that the unfortunate man had been to Cardiff, and was returning on board at the time above stated, and by some means fell into the dock. The body was recovered at 2.20 a.m. on Friday by Police-constable Saunders, and conveyed to the dead-house. Subsequently an inquest was held, before Mr. E. B.

Hughes, vicar, presiding.—The Chair- man mentioned that the chief business of the meeting was to nominate five candidates for the five vacant seats on the School Board for the ensuing three years. Before proceeding to form a new board, Mr. Lougher, Ga rnlhvyd. begged to propose a hearty vote of thanks to the retiring members for their services during the past three years.—Mr. Lougher, Llanvithyn, seconded, and it was carried with acclamation.—After a brief consultation with the retiring members as to their willingness to prolong their services in the good and noble cause of education, it was unanimously resolved that the members of the old Board be re-elected, except Mr. Oliver Thomas, formerly of Flexland, who has left for Wenvoe.—On the motion of the Rev. A. T. Hughes, seconded by Mr. W. Lougher, Llanvithyn, it was unanimously resolved that Mr. Evan S.

THE FORTHCOMING LOCAL BOARD ELECTION. DECISION TO RUN LABOUR CANDIDATES. A representative and enthusiastic meeting of dele- gates of local Trades Union societies was held at the Picnic-hall, Cadoxton, on Tuesday night. The repre- sentatives of the press were excluded from the pro- ceedings, but continued enquiry has elicited the follow- ing information :—There were present, Messrs. Love and T. Scott, Barry Branch of the Labourers' Union W. Harper, secretary of the Cadoxton Branch of the National Amalgamated Labourers' Union Fisher and Loring, Amalgamated Joiners' and Carpenters' Union Bagard, secretary Carpenters' Union Price (secretary) and Edward Rivers, Plumbers' Union Hughes (secretary), and Frank Edmunds, Painters' Union; J. Crisp, Riggers' and Boatmen's Union; Fowler, Bristol and West of England Trades' Union, Barry Dock Branchy Rees, secretary of the Barry Coal Tippers' Union W. Copp (secretary) and J. Wright, and J. Dyke, Masons' Union. We understand that the Barry Branch of the Amalgamated Railway Servants' Society did not receive any notice of the meeting, and that Mr. H. Inch, secretary of the Barry Branch of the Engineers' Society, was unable to be present. All other Trades' Unions were represented. A very long and animated discussion ensued on the forthcoming Local Board election at Barry and Cadox- ton. and eventually the following resolution was car- ried: with unanimity and enthusiasm:—"That it is expedient that we as trades unionists should take active steps to obtain direct labour representation on the Barry and Cadoxton Local Boird." It was deci- ded to run a labour candidate, so that the federated union will be able to instruct him to vote from a labour point of view, on all matters that come before the board. A deputation, consisting of Messrs. Copp, Rivers, and Rees, was appointed to wait upon the several gentlemen who have expressed their intention to stand as candidates at the forthcoming election, with the object of eliciting their views on labour questions generally. It was decided that the union of local societies should not be abandoned after the election, but that it should continue in existence to defend local labour interests. Mr. Fisher was appointed secretary of the union. We further understand, that if the union fail to secure satisfactory assurances from at least three of the candidates, additional labour candi- dates will be run. This witnesses the formation of an exceedingly important local labour movement.

Having found that the charge at this Asylum was below thair of some Asylum,s he had no desire to press the matter further.—Dr. Fringe suggested that the house committee should be authorised to make re- ductions in the charges for private patients on appli- etaion being made to them in certain cases in the c< unty of i Halllurgan.-Councillor K.

PORTHCAWL NOTES. In taking my pen up to write a few lines for your first number, you will allow me to welcome THE STAR. We needed it: we have been a long time waiting and watching for a something to turn up that would awaken men from the lethargy that has overtaken them and the field is ready, and I have not the least doubt as to the ultimate success of the efforts to be put forth to bring it to a good state. The state of both political parties at the present moment is that of quietude. The Conservatives have but little faith in the success of their present candidate's campaign. The Liberals on the other hand are so cocksure of their success that they are doing nothing to enlighten nor to strengthen their weak members. I would personally be glad if the leaders of both parties formed a debating class and worked the members a little, so as to drill them ready for the general election. Death has been busy amongst us during the past few weeks. The latest victim was Mr. Wm. Wilson, (junior), a prominicnt man in all local affairs. H" was buried last Saturday amid every mark ol respect. Buildings are still going on, and Porthcawl people are bent upon finding sufficient accommodation for r, visitors during the coming season. There are many things required yet to make the place as attractive as it should be, viz.. public lamps, public conveniences—a few cabs—a reading room, and a good public hall. May they all come.
