FREE TRADE v. PROTECTION. The American papers have this week been publishing some interesting contributions which the Xew York Associated Press has received from a special correspondent, who has been pursuing an independent investigation as to the effects of the McKinley Tariff upon the export trade of European countries. The returns quoted are most instructive, and the effect of the Tariff will soon prove so oppressive to the poor classes in America that it is certain a change in the law will be made After the next Presidential election. It has been ascertained that the totals of English exports to the United States for the last three months of 1891, for which figures are obtainable, show an actual increase over the figures of the same months of the previous year. The Protection- ist Consul-General of the United States at London, the Hon. J. C. Xew, contends that the exports of the materials for manufactur- ing the cheaper grades of goods which are used by the working men have not decreased, but have increased, while the exports of such goods as silks, fine worsted, dress goods, fine woollen and goats' hair, have fallen off, which goes to show that the effect of the Tariff Act has been a benefit rather than a hardship to labourers in the United States." From an analysis of the returns it will appear that this statement is in- correct. While the trade in the lower qualities of woollen gooch," says the report, ,-will perhaps cease, high-class woollen goods will always be exported, as rich Americans will insist on having them." Again, speak- ing of the She Sell manufactures, the correspondent says, Recently there has been a perceptible improvement in their condition, as far as the more valuable kinds of goods are concerned. The lower priced articles are affected, however, very greatly. High-cl ass goods always find a ready market in the States, or elsewhere, and it is believed that the tariff in force in the States at the present time has had a more disastrous effect upon German wares than upon the Shef- field cutlery. Upon the lower priced goods, Sheffield as well as German, the tariff has operated prejudicially." At Dundee the general opinion expressed was that the effect of the McKinley tariff in that city and the sur- rounding district had been in the linen trade to cause manufacturers to use much smaller sized yarns, and to send to America much higher oriced goods. The new tariff falls with pro- hibitive force upon the more useful ordinary domestic linens." These extracts seem to us to prove conclusively that it will be the work- ing men of America that the tariff will affect, while it will but\lightl}" touch the wealthy. The object of the McKinley Tariff Act was supposed to be to prCitJct and nurse the home industries of the States. It was found im- possible by the Americans to compete with the cheap labour market of Europe. For instance, a penknife made in Sheffield and sold in England for sixpence, could be exported to the States and sold there for seven pence. A penknife of similar design anI quality could not be manu- factured in America for less than ninepence. Ko American, however patriotic, would be willing to pay ninepence for an Amercan pen- knife, when he could buy an equally good one of English make for seven- pence. What the McKinley Tariff did was to put a tariii 011 every imported article. Thus a duty of threepence would be placed on every Sheffield penknife, and the English manufacturer, who could before sell it for sevenpence, could not now sell it for less than tcnpenoe. As the American manufacturer does not pay the tariff, he can still sell it for ninenence, and thus undersell the English manufacturer. The benefits of the system seem so obvious that at first one is apt to wonder how we in this country ever became Free Traders. Mr. Xcw. however, admits that there is a difference between this country and the States in this matter. This (/.< England) is a free (trade) country, he says," "because the the English arc manufacturers, and not pro- ducers, ° and they necessarily have to get their supplies from other countries. Manufacturers here must sell everything they make, and the adverse interest of our country is only because of a desire to protect home mannfactureo and develope home mar- kets, and because a home market means for America mouths to feed g,nd bodies to clothe." This is the American protectionists' argument in a nutshell. -Security is better than opu- lence," said Adam Smith, and it is well, says the American, to make sacrifices in order to protect home manufactures and develope home markets." This sounds very well, but there are two things that must be taken into con- sideration. First, it may be impossible, even with a protective tariff, to develope home markets." A leading tinplate manufacturer told the correspondent that it would never pay the Americans to manufacture their own tinplates. Another told him that it had been ascertained by a deputation, who went out there to inquire, that they cannot possibly establish profitable tinplate works, unless they put on such prices for their manufactures as would be burdensome to their customers." The cor- respondent is also told in Dundee that to erect works in America (to manufacture jute goods), in the opinion of the Dundee manufacturers, would be a risky enterprise." It is not at all certain, therefore, that the Tariff will help to ■' develope home markets." In the second place, it should be remembered that protection costs something. In the case of the imaginary pen- knife, it will cost twopence, that is, the differ- ence between the English and the American selling price. The question now comes, Who pays this difference ? It is not the English manufacturer, for if he pays threepence tariff he will charge threepence more for the pen- knife. It is not, therefore, the manufacturer but the consumer that has eventually to pay the difference. Nor will the tariff affect English trade, except temporarily. We find from the returns which we have been quoting that only certain localities and certain industries will be -affected. For instance, we find that though the Welsh tinplate trade and the Glasgow manufac- tures will be very much impaired, the trade of the country generally shows an increase. Nor need our tinplate manufacturers be alarmed. They had, as a large Liverpool exporter said, "sufficient fore- sight to get twelve months' stock landed before July 1st," and, therefore, they can afford to wait this year and do little or nothing else," aud by that time he feels confident that the Bill will be revised, even if not rescinded. Even if the Bill be not rescinded, the tinplate exporters will find, as the Leeds manufacturers have, that there are other markets which arc open to -English goods. In Leeds," so the report says, 41 at the beginning of the year, trade was greatly depressed by the tariff, but the Leeds manu- facturers say they have built up a trade with their own Colonies and with Italy, which com- pensates them for the loss in the United States." We feel confident that this will be the experi- ence of every enterprising manufacturer. The American consumer, then, will have finally to pay the tariff, and this explains why it is that the Protectionist Consul-General seeks to prove that the" Tariff Act has been a benefit rather than a hardship to labourers in tte United States." We have already shewn that the Act will affect the working man more acutely than any. England will continue to supply America with high-priced luxuries, but the cheap German wares and domestic goods will now be supplied by American producers. If such goods could be supplied as cheaply by the American as the English manufacturer, the consumer would have no cause to grumble. But, as a matter of fact and experience, this is not the case, and the consumer will have to suffer from the difference of price. Granted that the protection of native industries means for America mouths to feed and bodies to clothe," are the Americans willing to pay the price ? The recent elections show that they are not. The elections were fought on the Tariff Act, and the protectionists were beaten all along the line. Even the farmers, who had hitherto been the main supporters of protection, discarded it now that it affected their own pockets. The Americans are unwilling that nine-tenths of the population should be taxed for the benefit of the remaining one-tenth. The protectionists may talk of public spirit and of the glory of sacrificing the individual for the common good, but the average citizen will see that his self-sacrifice means the enrich- ment of his manufacturing neighbour. The Act will not, therefore, be long endured, and it is almost certain that after the next pre- sidential election it will, at all events, be con- siderably modified. Even in a self-sustaining country like the United States, protection must necessarily be an evil. The present prosper.ty of the States is in spite of, not on account of, protective tariffs, and only affords another proof of the vast resources of that great country. Were its trade freed from the crutches, which impede the progress of every healthy state, the prosperity of the States would increase by leaps and bounds, with a vapidity unoarallelled in modern times.

IN AND AROtlXD BARRY. Xow that Mr. D. Farr is training his excellent choir for the performance of Handel's "Judas Maccabceus," I hope he will be encouraged. It behoves the members of the choir to attend punc- tually and regularly the practices. There is one thing I should like particularly to mention. I presume Mr. Farr intends approaching the Barry and Cadoxton Orchestral Society with the view to having their valuable assistance when the oratorio is performed. A small orchestra would be a dis- tinct acquisition, and the introduction and the march in the work will be then all the more worth hearing. Consider, too, what an assistance the band would be to the choir, especially in the heavy chorus, and there arc one or two heavy numbers in Judas Maccab-eus. Of course some instruments will be absolutely necessary. For instance, who would care to listen to the aria, "Sound an alarm," unless it were associated with a grand accompani- ment of trumpets. I happened this week to come in pleasant con- tact with the relative of a former owner of that now pleasant spot—Barry Island-before the age of steam and electricity. He referred with a great amount of interest to the disposal of the same at a public-house at Cardiff. He questioned as to its pleasantness now, and in the course of the conver- sation related the following :-It was well known within our family, when they lived on the Island, that there was situated there a pool of leeches. An old woman acting as the village apothecary at Llantwit-Major used to journey now and again to obtain some of these useful creatures. Not knowing the value of such, the old woman was always welcomed. In a short time, however, the owner and occupier of the Island received an order for a hundred of them, at sixpence each, from Somersetshire, where one of his daughters was being educated. Another order presently arriving, at one shilling each this time, the old woman from Llantwit-Major was not such a welcomed visitor. They told her she would be obliged to pay for them in future, but she refused to do so, and had to go her way. She showered her wrathful reelings upon the once kind family, and said she would have revenge for their refusal. One morn- ing, a short time afterwards, the whole of the leeches in the pool were found dead, having been killed with lime by the irate old apothecary. He asked me about several of our older surroundings, and, after referring to several amusing incidents which he remembered, said several of his ancestors lie enclosed within their narrow bed at Cadoxton churchyard. The Hibernia Lodge dinner at the Witchill on Monday was very good. I have had occasion many times before to commend several dinners that have been given in the district. Indeed, as I write, my mouth waters at the recollection of the ducks and chickens, and lamb and bulls and leather that I have helped to demolish during the last few months. But I must say this for the Witchill dinner. Not only was there plenty to eat, but it was good stuff, well cooked and well served. The service was better than at any dinner I have been at in the district. The absent mem- bers didn't know what they were goiner to miss or they would have turned up. The speeches, to speak tha strict truth, were rather dull. There was a scarcity of topics, and when a hare was started everybody chased it to the death. There was one new feature. For the first time a lady spoke, and I must say many hosts in the district could learn from Miss Hoddinott in the matter of speaking. The only notable thing said was said by Mr. McDonnell. He was thanking Mr. Hoddinott for his generosity in allowing the lodge the use of a room gratis I went at the end of the first quarter," said the sec., to see Mr. Hoddinott about payment." You can see me again about it said Mr. Hoddinott. I never added the secretary naively, even sadly, I never, saw him again." A new way to pay old debts with a vengeance It reminds one of the answer a certain muddled divinity scholar gave in an exam. )fhe question was, What do you know of the good Samaritan ?" The future parson answered. The good Samaritan was a man who travelled from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell down on the wayside, and the thorns grew up and choked him. And a certain man, passing by, saw him, and took compassion on him, and carried him to an inn. And he gave the innkeeper one penny, saying. 'Give unto him all that he needeth, and when I come again I will pay it to thee. even unto the uttermost farthing.' This he said, knowing full well he would see his face no more." I am glad to hear that the Hibernia Lodge is doing so well. I can't under- stand why a Welsh lodge is not started here as well. There are any amount of Welsh people here who would willingly join such a benefit society. Who will take the matter up ? I can remember lots who have done good service to other lodges. Will they start in the matter ? It's rather a ticklish thing to advise public bodies. One generally gets more kicks than half- pence for his trouble, but I feel that I ought to say a word or two of advice, in the friendliest possible spirit, to our School Board. Hitherto, I must say, they have shown themselves to be a very good Board, and I hope they will go on being good. It is very hard, even for a public body, to do so, but, then, what public body can boast such members as our School Board has What I want to tell them is this. It was reported in the Star some time ago that the Board were advertising for teachers for the Holton Schools. (By-the-bye, why don't they advertise in the local papers other School Boards do.) Now, I should like to point out to the Board that Holton is a very Welsh part of the district; indeed, I should say that is is tin- Welshiest part. More than that, Welsh has been accepted as a subject in the new Education Code. Surely it isn't too much, then, to expect that a Welshman, crtrrix paribus, conver- sant with the Welsh language should be ap- pointed ? I don't say it in any disparaging way. but justice compels me to point out also that at Barry and Cadoxton Englishmen have been ap- pointed headmasters. Let us 'Welshmen, then, have one-third of the appointments in our own country." I don't want a Welshman to be appoin- ted simply because he if a Welshman, but if two equally competent men apply, one an Elglishman, the other a Welshman, I contend that the Welsh- man should have the preference. As a matter of fact, I believe that several good Welsh Welshmen have or are going to apply. I hope, therefore, the board will bear in mind when making the appointment that very many of the children will be Welsh, that Welsh as a subject can and will be taught, that there are plenty of eligible Welshmen applying, and that it is only just that Welshmen should get some of the plums in hen wlad fy nhadau." Now that I am on the subject of schools, I can- not refrain from telling a story I heard of a certain bright boy in a certain school in this neighbour- hood. He was in the fifth standard, and was bright and lazy. He was given some arithmetic to do, but the afternoon was sultry and oppres- sive, and Jack was too clever a boy to think of puzzling his head about things when nature called on him to sleep. The hour came to an end, the master came round to see the bright boy's an- swer, but he found none. How is this, John Jones ?" asked the master, in a terrible voice. An hour gone and no sums." Please sir," said Jack, in an insinuating tone, they're on strike." Visions of schoolboy strikes floated through the horrified mind of the dominee. •' Who's on strike, sir ?" he asked. "'Please sir, the sums are, sir," answered Jack. "Please sir, the sums are, sir," answered Jack. The sums repeated the master, angrily. The sums, what do you meün?" Please, sir," an- ,;v swered the boy. they won't work." And the dominie turned his back. I hear that the district cricket club are going to celebrate the finish of a very successful season by having a dinner. I think it an excellent idea. I always think a good dinner an excellent idea, and I generally put the excellent idea into a still more excellent practical use. It would be much better were all the local cricket clubs-the Barry, Barry Dock, and Cadoxton cricket clubs and any others that may be in existence—to join and have one good glorious spread. Of course the number of dinners would be less, and that is certainly a consideration, but then the bliss of one big dinner of cricket clubs I am glad, too. to hear such good reports of the district football clul)." The jersey which the committee has selected is a very nice thing—navy blue with a yellow saeh. I hear rumours that there are some splendid footballers in our midst, and I think the club has been most lucky in getting Mr. Nelines to act as secretary. A correspondent writes me :—Please allow me a small space in your valuable paper to draw the attention of your readers to a subject worthy of th3 attention of all of us. All of us like to be at liberty to enjoy our freedom, but as things are at present in Barry district we are not safe on the streets, nor even at our homes, and it is a good job for us that we have cons tabes to defend us and our homes, and all sorts of men won't do as con- stables in this district. We must have men with pluck and game, the same as the young hero that caught the burglars at Cadoxton. The grand work of this young man is worthy of -special notice, and I believe that we as inhabitants ought to make him a good testimonial, just to show him that we appreciated his work, and to encourage him and all the other constables to more bravery in defending our lives and homes in future. Trusting that some others more capable will come out on the same subject again, and that it will end in a good testimonial to Mr. B. Phillips,— Yours truly, WELSHMAN.
BARRY. CORRECTION.—In our report of the proceedings of the School Board we inad vert only mentioned the name of Mr. E. F. Blackmore as being paid an amount for goods supplied. It should have read "Miss S. M. Blackmore." ENGLISH BAPTISTS.—We hear that steps are being taken to erect an English Baptist Chapel at Barry. Several sites have been mentioned, but we understand the site has not yet been finally decided on. The pro- bability is that a site will be secured on Barry-on-Hill. DISTRICT TRADES' COUNCIL.—On Saturday even- ing last, at a meeting of the Docker's Union, held at Holton, Mr. W. M'Giil presided. An address was delivered by Mr. Tom McCarthy on the necessity of unity among labouring classes. The speaker dwelt very lucidly with the subject, and was most enthusias- tically received. WE understand the Barry Market will be opened again on Saturday next, it having been closed the last two weeks on account of several important alterations and additions to the premises having been carried out. The whole of the rooms above the front shops have been now arranged as separate offices, and will be ready for occupation in a few days. A new floor has also been put down in the market. SUCCESSFUL TEA MEETING AXD ENTERTAIN- MENT.—The Barry Co-operative and Industrial held a very successful tea meeting and entertainment at the Public Hall on Monday evening last. Over 300 persons availed themselves of the opportunity of a checrful cup of tea, .and they were unanimous in pro- nouncing it both pleasant and enjoyable. An enter- tainment was held later in the evening, over which Air. J. Lowdon presided. The room was well fiiled, and the proceedings thoughout were most enthusiastic. Addresses were delivered by the Chairman, Captain Davies (harbour master), Mr. Clay (Gloucester), Messrs. J. Moon (Barry), H. Inch, — Davies, and others. Amongst the artistes were Miss Emery, N.L.E.C., whose elocutionary abilities, displayed in her two recitations, were very appreciable; Mr. Tom Jones, Cardiff, tenor Mr. Tom Price, Cardiff Choral Society, bass Misses A. and C. Clement; Miss Lewis and Mr. Lewis, vocal duet: and Miss Lewis and Miss Inglis, pianoforte duet. The Barry Male Voice Party (conducted admirably by D. Farr) rendered the favourite glees, Little church," t, The sailor's chorus," and "Laugh and grow fat," much to the admiration of the audience, who gave a practical display of it by their vociferous applause. It must not be omitted that Mr. Moon and Mrs. Williams were very energetic- ally engaged throughout the day in assisting to carry out the arrangements successfully.

BARRY DOCK. ACCIDEXT AT IiARRV DOCK.—On Monday, a dock labourer, named John Burnett (28), living at 3, Little- ton-street, Canton, was admitted to the Cardiff Infirm- ary suffering from a fractured leg. The man was employed by Messrs. Watts, Ward and Co., at the Barry Docks, and while following his employment a rope connected with a hydraulic capstan slipped off a roller and struck him on the leg, causing a serious injury. He was conveyed to the infirmary Barry, on a sretchcr, and detained in the infirmary. COAL TRIMMERS' DEè,rOXSTRATlOx.-The first demonstration in connection with the Cardiff, Pen- arth, and Barry Coal Trimmers' Association was held at Cardiff on Monday, when 500 members, accom- panied by brass bands, &c., marched through the principal streets to Canton Market, where a public meeting was held. Mr. Rees Jones, J.P., took the chair, and was supported by Mr. D. A. Thomas, M.P., Mr. F. J. Bcavan, Mr. John Stephens (chairman of the association), Mr. J. H. Payne, and Mr. Joseph Robertson. EXPORTS AND IMPORTS.—The shipments of coal and coke at Barry Dock for the week ending Saturday last amounted to to 86,853 tons 18 cwt. This was shipped on board 41 steamers and 16 sailing vessels. The imports during the week consisted of 2,200 tons of pitwood. 200 tons of pig iron, 166 tons of bricks, and 136 tons of gravel.

CADOXTOX. TO-MORROW (Saturday) there will be exhibited in the window of Mr. Follick's outfitting shop, 23, Main- street, the presentation cricket bat for the highest average during the season. NEW SOLICITOR.—Mr. A. Jackson, solicitor, of Barry Dock, who had two cases at the police-court yesterday, appeared for the first time as an advocate at Cadoxton, and created a very good impression. ENGLISH COXGREGATIOXALISTS. — We under- stand that it is intended-to build a chapel in connec- tion with this cause shortly. We are glad to hear that, though services were only started a few months ago, the progress made has been most satisfactory. PIGEOX SHOOTING.—We beg to draw the attention of the sporting section of our readers to the fact that the second round for the members' challenge cup of the Cardiff Gun Club will take place at the Witchell Athlectic Grounds on Monday next at 12 o'clock. Sweepstakes will follow. NICE, ISX' IT ?—Alluding to the paper which Mr. Iwan Jenkyn read at the Baptist Union last week, the Ti/tf a' r Di/dil says, "Excellent was the leading article of the South Wale* Daily New.* on it the day after, and better still was that of the South Wale.. Star at the end of the week." WE see that Mr. Alfred Rogers, solicitor, has joined his brother, Mr. Hywel L. Rogers, solicitor, and they have opened offices at 5. Vere-street, Cadoxton, and intend practising under the name of Rogers and Rogers." They will also, we believe, open offices at Barry Dock and Barry. CRICKET MATCH.—"EAST LYXXE CO. V. CA- DOXTOX CRICKET Cn;H.—This match was played 011 the Witchill Grounds on Wednesday in delightful weather, when the former won by 59 to 26. The bat- ting of Messrs. Masters and Welch for East Lynne was excellent and tended to the victory. DISGRACEFUL SCEXE. — On Monday evening a couple of inebriated men. encouraged by several other men with whom they had been drinking, proceeded down.the Cadoxton Moors road, to settle their differ- ences on a piece of unused land between Cadoxton station, and the hacks of the houses in Churchill- terrace. A long and desperately fought encounter ensued, both men being badly knocked about. There 'was a very large crowd present, and the disgraceful exhibition lasted some considerable time, much to the annoyance of the inhabitants of houses close by. For- tunately for the combatans no policeman put in an appearance. It is to be hoped that this kind of thing, .7 which has become very common in Cadoxton, will very soon cease, and that the police authorietes will keep an eye on such offenders. FOOTBALL.—A meeting of the committee of the District Football Club was held at the Witchill Hotel, on Tuesday last. It was decided that the colours be navy blue with a yellow sash, which can be obtained from Mr. Colemau Follick, outfitler, Barry-road. To- morrow (Saturday) a trial match will be played, and all who wish to play should send in their names at once to Mr. J. H. Nctines. the secretary. An excellent list of fixtures has been secured, and a second fifteen will be formed. We hope that all lovers of the game will join the club, and help to make it a thorough success. A GOOD SHOW OF CARRIAGES.—On Tuesday, in this week, Mr. D. W. Lewis, our enterprising coach and carriage builder, Ac., exhibited several of his latest executions opposite the Picnic-hall. They com- prise four-wheel spring and other waggons, gigs of very neat workmanship, also one or two strong cans, made with extra strong bodies to suit the rough 1 dis- tricts. As these are chiefly ordered it speaks well of the attention which Mr. Lewis' establishment com- mands.

WEXVOE, JUBILEE WEDDING REJOICINGS.—Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Thomas, Burden Hall Farm, Wenvoe, cele- brated their jubilee wedding on Friday last. This venerable couple are well known throughout the country, and are deservedly highly respected. They have reside I at Wenvoe for the past twelve years, and previously farmed for many years at Monknash, near Bridgend. Mr. Thomas is "seventy-nine years, and is still hale and hearty, as is indeed Mrs. Thomas, who is seventy-three years of age. The proceedings on Friday last were very interesting. All the members of the family—to the number of thirty and who all resided in Glamorganshire—were present, includ- ing the following eleven children of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas :—Mr. W. Thomas auctioneer. Cadoxton Mr. R. Thomas. Great Western Hotel, Gyfcillion, near Pontypridd; Mrs. Williams, Tredegar Arms, Pontypridd; Mr. Daniel Thomas and Miss Thomas, Bute Hotel, Treherbert; Mrs. Thomas, Llanbrain Farm, Llantwit-Fardre Mrs. Gabriei'e, Canton Mr. John Thomas, hay merchant, Pontypridd Mr. Joseph Thomas, Brecon House, Dinas Povvis; Mr. Evan Thomas, hay merchant. Treherbert; and Miss Thomas. Burden Hall Farm, Wenvoe. During the day Mr. and Mrs. Thomas were the recipients of many con- gratulations, and were presented with a very handsome Welsh Bible as well as a nairof gold rimmed spectacles each. The whole party were photographed during the afternoon. FOLLICK'S is the Genuine Shop for all kinds of Clothing. Corner of Barry-road and Main- street.—Advt.
RHOOSE. RELIGIOUS MEETINGS.—"Captain" Edith Raines and Lieutenant" Ella Isdell, of the Salvation Army, and both engaged in slum work in London, have been staying here for the last fortnight, and have held meetings on Sundays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at the Jubilee Hall. The services were well attended on each occasion. SUNDAY LABOUR.—A correspondent writes:— Anyone going in the direction of Rhoose on Sunday might have seen some of the farmers busy harvesting. In one field adjoining the main road a patent cutter and self-binder could be seen and heard rattling around, drawn by three horses, and owned by a leading Rhoose farmer, while in a field exactly opposite some ten or twelve men were busily engaged carrying for a well-known Penmark farmer. These gentlemen evi- dently believe in making hay while the sun shines, even though it 1)) on Sunday. LUCKY RECOVERY OF LOST MONEY.—On Satur- day morning last, Mr. Hammond, the cashier, whilst driving from Cowbridge via St. Hilary with money to pay the men working on the Co wbridge and Aber- thaw Line, now In course of construction, discovered on reaching the top of Tregriff-hill, the tailboard of the vehicle ill which he rode unfastened and swinging on its hinges, and a bag containing between £2°.0 and £300 missing out of the trap. He immediately turned back, and met a gentleman at the foot of the hill, who replied in the negative in answer to his en- quiries as to whether he had found anything, and on being told of the nature of the loss proceeded some distance further back, and fortunately found the bag intaet in the road. The gentleman whose timely a.s- sistance proved so valuable to Mr. Hammond is Mr. Giles, landlord of the Aubray Arms," Bonvilstonc.

OPENING OF A BIBLE CHRISTIAN CHAPEL AT BARRY DOCK. On Wednesday last the chapel which has been in course of erection for some time past for the denomination of Bible Christians was formally opened, under very auspicious circumstances. For some time past the cause has been carried on at the new hotel on the Holton-road, kindly placed at their disposal bv Mr. J. J. Williams, Royal Hotel, and subsequently at a tent erected on a portion of the waste ground near. The new building, which is situate on the new road recently completed between Cadoxton and Holton Police-station, is of a very imposing design. From its structural arrangements, it was originally intended by the Bible Christian friends as a Sunday School, but, pending funds for the erection of a chapel adjoin- ing (land for which is being reserved) they utilise the same as a place of worship. The stones used were chiefly the native limestone, with light bright dressings. In the front of the building, however. the embellishments are of Bath stone, neatly planed. The usual lobby is provided with an entire second floor. The ground room is con- structed suitably to match the stained-deal seats and pulpit, the whole looking neat and comfort- able. The pulpit is more of the modern platform style, with a square opposite for communion table, organ, kc. The foundation stones (six in number) were laid in April this year, and the work was under the architectural supervision of Messrs. Seward and Thomas, already weli known in the district, was carried out by Messrs. E. R. Evans and Brothers, contractors. Holton-road. This build- ing, together with the new schools almost adjoin- ing, tend to form yet another link towards con- necting the districts of Holton with that of Cadoxton. The services were commenced at 3.30 by a preaching service, at which the Rev. J. O. Keen, D.D., of Cardiff, eloquently discoursed to a large congregation. Subsequently a public tea was held, at which a large number congregated. These were all lavish in their expressions of commenda- tion at ihe inimitable provision. A public meeting followed, at which there was a crowded atten- dance. The chair was occupied by Mr. John Cory, who was supported on the platform by the nevI". Canon Allen, J. H. Stowell, M.A. (Barry). J. Tre- melling, and J. W. Matthews. A choir from Diamond-street Chapel, Cardiff, and led by Mr. Burns, attended, and proved a source of much interest. The Chairman, after giving out a hymn and interest. The Chairman, after giving out a hymn and calling for prayer for a reverend divine, in the course of a lengthy speech, felt confident that the object in erecting that building was not as an in- ducement to people from other churches to join them, but in order to get those who did not-know anything of Christ to come there and worship the true God, and get them saved. (Hear, hear.) There was plenty of room in this vast district for encouragement in this respect by the members of that church. After reading an extract of the speech delivered by the Rev. — Higman at the laying of the foundation stone, the speaker dwelt at length upon the desirability of proportionate giving amongst the church. He did not think it was sufficiently enforced upon the people that they ought to give proportionately to their earn- ings a weekly contribution to the Lord. (Hear, hear). The Rev. J. Honey detailed the work accom- plished since the commencement of the movement. It was now about twelve months ago (7th Sept.. last year), since four persons with himself stood just across the road in the open air and began to sing, and as friends gathered round they united in prayer, and also gave a Gospel address. Subse- quently they had a room at the hotel kindly placed at their disposal by Mr. J. J. Williams. For about 11 weeks they worshipped in a tent, the weather being exceptionally favourable in which to meet; it was the cause of much anxiety among them on various stormy nights as to" its safety. He wished to testify with very great heartiness to the services of those friends who had gathered round and assisted in the work by their generous giving and gratuitous aid. He especially referred to one family from whom there had been put into the box on an average Is. 6d. a day, while in several other eases money was forthcoming where they had not much reason to expect it. In this way very heavy claims by way of the expense of the tent, kc., had been met. He took the question of work as well. Two friends had remained up at night, as well as giving other spare time, in making a beautiful desk for the Sunday School. The communion table was begun, and another friend said he would help them, and when they required material Mr. E. R. Evans said, "I will give it, because I like to help friends." (Hear, hear.) In that way they had gone on, and in that way they meant to go on. And this was accompanied without any discord whatever. The price of the contract was & 1,200, but they may judge as to the usefulness of the cause when he told them that last Sunday there were 106 scholars at the Sunday School. If they continued to multiply 10 per cent. as they had done, in another ten. months they would be crying out for increased accommodation. It ought to be mentioned that Messrs. Seward and Thomas, and it was sufficient to mention their names to those acquainted with them. as architects, to the nature of the work done. As to the contract, it had been exceeded by some hundreds more than was at first thought, but he thought he could see £300 before him that night. They would agree that it was not a great amount amongst 600 sittings. After they would get £:250, the speaker said it Jiad been promised that they should get a like amount. Mr. James Crewe (secretary) gave the statement of accounts with the amounts that were laid on the foundation stones when being laid, in all amounting to nearly £ 100. The Rev. Canon Allen referred to ths period 350 years ago when there sat upon the throne of England a man, who if differed from in any of the minutest detail regarding his religion would be hung. If that was the case to-day they would be perforced to hang every man. But they differed at the present time as friends. Were they to quarrel because they read a certain text differently ? (Cheers.) He dwelt upon the liapj.y unions which were being effected between ministers of different bodies. A few years ago such a thing would be almost unknown, he might say 50 years ago. If a clergyman of the Established Church attended such a meeting as that there would be a cry Here's a parson in the room—(laughter)— what is he here for, for mischief lets turn him out." (Continued laughter.) He hoped they had learned something better than that. (Cheers.) He did not think they could be better appellated together than men of Christian, and he hoped they would act up to it. (Hear, hear.) The Rev. J. Tremelling, Rev. II. Howell, and J. Keen, D.D., also further addressed the meeting. A collection was made, and in responding to a vote of thanks accorded the Chairman, the friends who had assisted the choir from Cardiff, and the press for their support, Mr. Cory promised a donation of £10 towards the funds. and a further premise of £ 25 when they secured the balance of the £ 250. The singing of the Doxology and the offering up of prayer terminated the proceedings. A telegram was read at the meeting from Coun- cillor J. C. Meggitt, expressing regret at being unable to attend. The Rev. J. Honey also kindly acknowledged assistance rendered by this gentle- man.
CADOXTOX POLICE COURT. THURSDAY.—Before :Major-Generd Lee (chair- man). Major Thornley. and Mr. Romilly. FURIOUS DRIVING.—William Irwin. of Cadox- ton, was charged by Police-constable J. Phillips with driving a pony and trap furiously through Vere-street on the 4th iu;t. Mr. A. Jackson, Barry Dock, defended.—Fined 5s. and costs. CARELESSNESS.—Robert Thomas, of Sydenham- street, was charged by Sergeant Evans with leaving a horse and trap unattended outside the Barry Hotel. Mr. A. Jackson defended.—Owing to the good character given by the police, the bench let him off with paying costs. ALLEGED RAPE. — The adjourned hearing of the case of George Sherwood, York-place. Cadoxton. who was charged with having feloniously assaulted his step-daughter, Hannah Stewart, in Holton- road, on the 20th August, was proceeded with. Hannah Stewart, Dr. O'Donnell, Margaret Sher- wood, and Acting Police-sergeant Gammond gave evidence, which has been already published ia the Sr>utk Star. The prisoner pleaded not guilty. The Bench committed him to the assizes, accepting bail, however, of £ 50 from two sureties, and £ 53 on his own recognisances. These not being forthcoming, the prisoner was taken into custody. FOOTBALL PLAYING IN THE STREETS. — Two boys, Thomas Jauhan and John Howeiis, were charged by Police-constable William Thomas with playing'football in High-street, Barry. The Bench discharged them with a caution. ILLICIT DRINKING.—Arthur Smith was charged by Police-constable William Solomon with illicit drinking on Mrs. Eliza King's premises at Merthyr Dovan on the 23rd ult. Adam Jones and James Bellamy were charged with _the same offence.— Inspector Rees corroborated.—Smith and Jones were fined 2s. 6d. and costs and Bellamy was discharged. A WAGES CLAIM.—J. Ashcroft sued D. Birchill for wages due. It transpired, however, that Ash- croft had been engaged as runner on commission, and the case was, therefore, outside the magis- trates' jurisdiction.—The case was, therefore dis- missed. ASSAULT.—Sarah Wells charged her lodger, Elizabeth Moat with assault.—A cross-summons was issued.—Both cases were dismissed. DRUNK.—J. Derrick was fined 2s. (id. and costs for being drunk and disorderly. STEALING BOOTS.—J.

NEW THEATRE ROYAL. CADOXTON, This week the two celebrated dramas, East Lynne" and The Battle of Life," occupy the boards at the New Theatre Royal, Cadoxton. East Lynne is a drama founded on Mrs. Henry Wood's world-famed tale, and is so well known that it requires no description of the plot to com- mend it to our readers. Mr. James Elphinstone, the lessee of the theatre, made his first appearance on the Cadoxton stage as Archibald Carlyle" in East Lynne, ahd "Robert Raymond in the Battle of Life..His acting was characterised throughout by excellent taste, delicacy and feeling, and as the injured husband in East Lynne won golden opinions. Mr. Alfred James as "Justice Hare," Mr. Gerald Washington as Lord Mountsevern." Mr. Alfred Evelyn as Bullock." and Mr. Elmsley as Richard Hare did well. Mr. James "Col- lier (Lawyer Dill) and Mr. John Palez" (Capt. Livison) are old favourites at Cadoxton. Miss Burgoyne, who made such a favourable impression in the "New :JIaz0ppa" some time ago. added to her laurels by her charming and womanly representa- tion of tile erring wife, Lady Isabel Carlyle. A word of praise is due also to little Viola Jewys (Willie Carlyle), Miss Jessie Hamilton (Joyce), Mrs. K. Priestly (Cornelia Carlyle). Miss Emily Stevens (Barbara Hare), and Miss Carrie Benson (Sazanne). The "Battle of Life," the great nau- tical drama, occupied the stage last night, and will be on to-night (Friday) and to-morrow night. Each evening is ended with a screaming farce, entitled A day after the wedding." Xext week the celebrated comedy. The Curate." will be played, and should draw crowded houses.
FOOTBALL. THE PEXYGRAIG TOURXAMEXT. The Penygraig football ground was in capital condition on Saturday last, when the season was opened with a football tournament on a grand scale. We cannot too highly commend the services rendered by Mr. W. E. Jarman who officiated as referee during the day, and gave complete satis- faction to all the players and the onlooKers. The following are the results :— BARBARIANS (24 points) Y. WHITCHURCH, CARDIFF (12 points).—At first the Whitchurch team, being much the heavier, had the best of the game. but the youngsters played in capital form, and Harding John, from a punt by one of the visitors, took the ball close to his own goal line and ran in a capital try. The final score was :— Barbarians, 32 Whitchurch, 20. MARITIME (scratch) v. TON RANGERS (10 points). —This was rather a tame affair, the Rangers being evidently completely out of form. The Maritime, playing well together. won easily by 21 points to 13. TREORKY (10 points) Y. PORTH (14 points).— During the first ten minutes this match was capitally contested, but again the heavier team had matters in the second half very much their own way. Treorky won by 21 points to 15. OLD PALS (scratch) v. CLYDACH VALE (14 points).—Much interest was shown in this game, which was hotly contested throughout. Clydach eventually winning by 33 points to 17. The final tie took place on Monday, and the Maritime (Pontypridd) team carried off the prize.

CORRESPONDENCE. ABERKENFIG FETE. — We can publish your news only as a letter, and then with your name attached, as it imputes motives to persons con- nected with the above. MR. W. TIIOMAS (VERE-STREET) AND THE LOCAL BOARD OFFICIALS' SALARIES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR,—In your last week's issue Mr. William Thomas (auctioneer) is reported to have stated at the last Local Board meeting, in connection with the application of Mr. Wallis for an increase of salary, that the General District Rate of last year amounted to £ 4.527 15s. 3d., and the salaries paid by the Board amounted to £1.712 16s., or equal to 75. 9d. in thc :C, has struck me as a very extra- ordinary statement, and I called at the Local Board Office to examine the accounts for the past year, to which Mr. Thorny refers, and I found that the total amount of General District Rate received amounted to £3.419 IPs. 8d., and that the antount paid to officials, including caretaker and inspector of common lodging-houses, and inspec- tor of nuisances' clerk, amounted to £507 14s. Id. Of this, roughly speaking, I was told about £60 would be returned by the County Council, leaving, therefore, £447 14s. Id. as the amount paid for salaries. This, I think, you will find is equal to about 2s. 7Jd. in the £ instead of 7s. 9d.. as Mr. Thomas states. These facts spoak for themselves, and I hope Mr. Thomas will express his regret at making such wild statements.—I am. icc.. A HEADER. -0 BARRY CHORAL UXIOX ^AXD ITS OBJECTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR-Kindly allow me through the medium of your popular journal to call the attention of the public generally to the above, as well as the desirability of getting their support towards establishing one united choir for the whole of the district. It will be evident to your readers that a more forcible argument in favour of the latter will be the result of the recent competition at Cadoxton Eisteddfod where, if united, we might have been able to prevent the chief prize going away. It is the the intention of the promoters of this choir to take in hand, if properly supported, classical works of our great masters, and they arc now considering the desirability of at once" pro- ceeding to learn the oratorio "Judas Maccabeus." I, therefore, take this opportunity of impressing upon the public of the district to assist us by becoming members. It would be the means of their gaining a knowledge of our favourite stan- dard works, besides treating the same to their fellow citizens. A means of eultivatiing their voices would thus be afforded them. which would materially improve congregational singing throughout the district. Now that the long winter evenings are just at hand, the young people could well afford a short time to this commend able object than wontonly beguiling their time in far worse places. Let it be thoroughly under- stood that it is the earnest wish of the promoters to maintain the choir independently of any party or creed, their object being to render it repress na- tive of the dull musical strength of the district. We have now an orchestral society established, and it would be Tery appreciative if we could as promoters obtain their co-operation in forming an orchestral and choral society combined. By this means the labour of one would be affecting a good impetus to the labour of the other and rt'>K- irrxu It lis only by endeavours of this simple kind that we are enabled to discover hidden talent, and bring it before the public. This has been proved more cases than one, and who knows, Mr. Editor. that we may be the means of bringing out another Ben Davies and Mary Davies from our midst, whose name should ever hereafter be linked in glory with the place where she was first taught the elements of music and voice traiming. It is possible.—I am, kc.. D. FARR. Conductor of the Barry Choral Society. COXSERVATISM AT LLAXTWIT-MAJOR." TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR,—I do not want particularly to enter into a controversy with your correspondent, only merely to place facts, instead of fiction, before your valuable readers. I see by your last week's issue that he attempts to apologise himself (or it may be herself) by admitting that we have a reading-room and Conservative Association at Llantwit-Major. and. to repeat again what I have previously contributed to these columns, Con- servatism far excels Liberalism in this part of the county For the past seven years we have had an excellent association, composed of the very best working committees—equal to none in the United Kingdom, and we are prepared to throw out the challenge to our colleagues, and especially the party in which your correspondent attempts in vain in this part of the constituency to be a leading light, much, I can assure you. to the disgust of his principal followers, who are willing to accept his resignation at an early date. If, for instance, your correspondent gave a fair and just criticism upon his opponents, I should be the first to admit it but when rushing to your columns with such unjustifiable comments, your numerous readers were worthy of Gospel truths laid before them. In conclusion. I wish to inform your penny a liner" that not only the daily leading Conservative organ, the TT'-vrfrrt rMai!, is received, but the Standard, and, as weeklies, the (rraphif. Tit-Bits. J'and two Welsh periodi- cals, which I consider a very fair quantity of literature, by far exceeding the number your cor- respondent is favoured with. This I can vouch for. Trusting, if this correspondence continues, that, whoever the scribe may be, the name will appear for the benefit of your numerous readers as a guarantee of reliance and good faith.— I am. &c.. JOHX DEERE. Jux.. Secretary to the Llantwit-Major and District Association and Reading-room. September 8. 1891. A CORRECTIOX. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES ETAR. SIR,—In your issue of the 4th inst. I am named as a deputation asking the Board to widen the road to Weston siding, whereas it should have been that, Mr. Oliver Thomas, Greave Farm. attended as a deputation asking the Board to widen and improve the road to Wenvoe siding.— Trusting that. in justice to myself and Mr. Thomas, you will kindly insert this in your next issue, and thanking you in anticipation. I am. kc.. OLIVER WILLIAMS. Great Hamston, St. Lytlian's. Q CHURCH EXTEXSIOX AT BARRY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR,—A day or two ago I went to see Barry Docks, and was much struck with the extensive town that appears to have sprung up there within a very recent period. The absence of proportion- ate Church extension seemed remarkable, especially as we often hear that the Church in Wales is advancing by leaps and bounds." I saw several Dissenting chapels of recent erection bills announcing the opening of a new one shortly were conspicuously posted, and I saw that a Canon Allen, presumably a Church dignitary, was to take part. Perhaps some one acquainted with the locality may be willing to afford some infor- mation as to what the Church is doing there.—I am. .See., A STRANGER. Cardiff. TACKLIXG H.M. IXSPECTOR. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR.—I was not astonished to find that n:t last the whims of Mr. Short have called for comment from the Llantwit Vardre School Board. After being accustomed for years to the gentlemanly manner and kind consideration of Mr. Edwards. the head inspector, teachers of Glamorgan find it hard to submit to the abrupt, not to say rude, behaviour of Mr. Short. The writer has known him to act towards a head teacher in a manner which made it absolutely clear that the inspector was a man of little and less breeding. He has a most irritable maniler with children, and from the moment 0fr"«nters school he suspects everyone and everything. On inspection day little or no regard is paid to the usual times cf assembling and dis- missing, and keeping scholars in school up to two o'clock is nothing rare. Qne would imagine that a man who has risen from the ranks would be just the one to sympathise with the teacher in his trying work, but it is impossible to regard Mr. Short as a teacher's friend.—I am. i:c., SCHOOLMASTER. r
