DISESTABLISHMENT MEETINGS AT PONTYPRIDD. Br B. X. C.j On Thursday, Sept. 11th. a new epoch in the his- tory of Welsh Disestablishment was inaugurated at Pontypridd. Welshmen have hitherto been con- tent with knowing' that they themselves are united on the Disestablishment question, and have neglected to inform Englishmen what the strength of the feeling for the disestablishment of the English Church in Wales really is. Now. however they have determined to carry the war into Eng- land. Welsh bishops acd church dignitaries have hitherto done and said what they pleased in Eng- land about the position of the Church in Wales, and a people that is in the main loyal to the Church of England have been too eager to believe .them. It will be the work of the Campaigners to disillusion the English masses on the subject, and show them what exactly is the position of affairs in Wales. The conference at Pontypridd was im- portant in another sense. It was in more than name a Welsh National Council. Every county in Wales was represented, and represented by its aristocracy—not only by its aristocracy of wealth and culture, but of worth, merit, and honesty and earnestness. There was a refreshing newness about the arguments which the several speakers advanced, a newness, if not in every case of matter. at all events of treatment. Major Jones, the late American Consul at Cardiff, and shortly a member for a Welsh constituency, received his baptism of fire as a Disestablisher—in Wales at all events. Years ago he had moved the masses of Newcastle by his eloquent statement of the case acrainst the Church, and it is no exaggeration to say that at Ponty- pridd he electrified his audience. He did not look the question from a political point cf view. but from a religious. It was difficult to understand," he said. why the religion of Nazareth, founded in simplicity and poverty—founded on broad charity—should have developed into an engine for persecution." He took up the same position as another great American, Roger Williams, whom he quoted, when he went on to say that the State had no concern with the opinions of men. and no right to interfere even in the slightest degree with the form of worship they might choose." And one could almost imagine that he was listening to the words of one of the early Christians, when it was said that Christianity was a kingdom of the soul and of the affections." and that it was the failure to acknowledge and to act upon that principle that had filled the world with tyrants and sycophants. Mr. Lloyd Morgan, the youthful M.P. for West Carmarthenshire, came in for a most flattering re- ception. and undoubtedly added to his growing re- putation. It was, not. he said, a question of counting noses. It was true that the Church was the Church of the minority. Ó. But that was not of importance. The principle of an Established Church was a wrong one to adopt, acd it did not matter whether it was the Church of the minority or the Church of the majority—there oucrht to be no connection between Church and State." Many other Welsh M.P. s spoke in the morning and afternoon conferences, but space will not admit my doing anything but barely to chronicle their names. In the morning Messrs. A. Spicer (the candidate for the Monmouth boroughs). R. D. Burnie (Swansea). Rev. W. Thomas Whitland). S. T. Evans, M.P.. Thomas Williams (Gwaelodv- g-arthi. Llewellyn Jones (secretary of the Cam- paign Committee), and Alderman W. H. Morgan (Pontypridd) spoke. In the afternoon addresses were delivered by Messrs. Stuart Rendel. M.P.. John Cory, Sir Hussey Vivian. M.P.. Alder- man R. Cory. D. A. Thomas" M.P.. C. Humphreys- Owen (candidate for the Denbigh boroughs). S."C. Evans-Williams (Rhayader). D. E. Davies (Pwll- heli), D. Lloyd George. M.P.. Mabon. M.P.. and the Rev. Aaron Davies. Never has it been my lot to attend a more enthusiastic meeting than the evening meeting at Pontypridd. On the way in. an enthusiastic Tory—if a Tory could be enthusiastic at Ponty- pridd on such a day—jeeringly pointed out to me the tricolor of the Union Jack. 'which ..Seated outside the Market-hall. Not being skilled in such matters I asked him what was wrong with it. Don't you see, he said, "that the tricolor is on the inside—a sign of distress:" He had. however, mistaken the significance of the omen. The Campaigners within were not in distress, as was evidenced by the crowded hall, and the liberal donations that kept flowing in. and I con- cluded that it wan a Churchman that must have hanged the Union Jack. Even the mottoes on the wall spoke of buoyant hope and assured success. I thought it most appropriate that above the plat- form where Young Wales figured prominently for about the fiist time in our political history, were the words Cymru Fydd," in gigantic letters. Here and there were other mottoes, Success to the Campaign." "England blocks the way." "Crefydd Rydd." •• Y Degwm i'r Genedl." -■ Cvd- wybod Rydd heh drais na gorme. C ad was I to see that the sturdy Liberals of Pontypridd had the courage of their convictions, and had put up a motto. Home Rule for Wales,' in one of the most conspicuous places. It reminded me of mother Welsh Parhameat-about the only one ever held when Owen v^lyrv.^r welcomed representatives irom ail pa its of Wales at ItaciivnlW^ ion,»iV(l centuries ago. All the spiers spoke'well. mu-t be s.:ud Lnat it was the Welsh speakers that stirred the multitude. Mr. Spicer. Mr. Frank Edwards. Mr. Humphrevs- Owen, and Mr. Randell spoke well and to the point, and the speech of Mr. Stuart Rendel was as full of matter as an egg is of meat. "Mabon" only paid the chairman of the Campaign Com- mittee a weli-deserved compliment when "he said that his speech would furnish them with matter for many speeches in the future. But truth com- pels me to say that it was the Welsh speakino- of Lloyd George and Mabon that roused the audience to enthusiasm. And no wonder. It is but seldom that Welshmen have bad the chance of hearing their M.P.'s speak their own tongue without the semblance of an English accent. I had never heard Lloyd George before, and I freely confess that I was disappointed in him—on the rig-ht side. I had pictured to myself a red-haired, freckled, uncouth young man. with a certain gift of speech, with intense earnestness, and with a voice as shrill as a washerwoman's, and as inexhaustible as a cheapjacks. I was, therefore, very pleasantly surprised when. instead of the interesting young man I have pictured. I beheld a youth of pleasant face and intelligent look, not marked out from the common herd except by a certain gentlemanliness and culture which could be felt but not described. My surprise was accentuated when I heard him speak. Where was the rough, shrill voice I had expected, the uncouth gestures and the awkward gesticulationsThus I thought when, for the first time. I experienced the magic of his silvery voice, and beheld his graceful and appro- priate gestures, and listened to his words of burning eloquence, relieved bv a true vein of Welsh humour. What pleased me more than all was the fact that this young orator was a thorough product of Welsh education and bringing-up. Now and then vou detected a charming touch of the Welsh accent. The cadence of his voice reminded one of the old Welsh pulpit orators, and his Biblical illustrations showed that here was a true sun of the Sunday School and the society. Xo wonder, then. we all felt proud of our young compatriot. I have alluded to his Biblical illustrations. Let me give two examples. After referring to the noble donations of the wealthier of those present, he went on to say in the words of the Apostles, Gold and silver have I not. but whac I have—earnestness and energy • that I freely give." Equally happy, also, was "his reference to the leper Gehazi. It was EJisha that cured Xaaman of his leprosy, but it was Gehazi who received the c'othes and fine linen. It is Nonconformity that has cured the moral leprosy of Wale". but it i, the Church that receives the tithes. I couldn t help carrying the illustration a little further in my mind. and sav that. as the leprosy of Naaman clung to Gehazi and his de- scendants for ever, so has it been with the Church m Wales. His peroration fairly brought down the house. His sweet voice had a warlike ring in it. his quiet presence seemed to be inspired for the time with the martial spirit of hi" ancestors who marched into Saxonland—not peacefully as the present c impaigners but to do or die to "the tune of Hariech, when with flashing eves and de- termined men he recited Ceiriog's lines— •• Cledd yn erbyn cledd a chwerv Dur yn erbyn d- • a derv RhyäÓd aiif a hi." "Sword 'gainst sword will play, Steel 'gainst steel will clash Liberty will win the day." The rising of Mabon was the signal for tremen- dous applause that reminded one of Thomas Davies' poem— W hen Mabon ro-e none dar ■d o e The claim he made for freedom.1 A different style of speaker is Mabon to Lloyd George. George has the rapier thrust, the irony. the dry humour of the oratorical expert. Mabon has the sledge hammer stroke, the rollicking humour, the two-handed sword, of one who has always gone straight to the point. If one could imagine the two engaged in a contest one would be reminded of the duel ir Scott's Anne of Geierstein." George, like Arthur de Vere. relies more on skill, and quick ness Mabon, like Rudolf, on strength and direct- ness of aim. I have heard Mabon many and many a time before, but it was only on Thursday night that I saw the secret of his power. The hall. whose largeness oppressed even experienced speakers, was filled with his resonant tenor voice Add to this, that he was in excellent spirits, and had evidently been aroused by the telling speech L of Stuart Rendel, who preceded him. and anyone who has heard Mabon will understand how hugely he was appreciated. There was no attempt at • argumentative treatment of the subject, and nc endeavour to display dialectical skill. There was no pretence of polished wit or rounded periods, It was simply a homely, irresistible appeal to an audience whose humour and whose every turn of thought were familiar to him. His hwyl was that of a Methodist preacher, awl his speech was interlarded—penetrated—saturated with biblical quotations, phrases, and illustrations. But for the shrieks of laughter, which interrupted the speaker now and then, one would have thought one was listening to a sermon. So much was this the case, that one druidical reporter, carried away by a too vivid imagination, was mentally tran- sported to some little hillside Bethel, and dissolved into tears. Mabon dealt with the past, present, and the future of the Church in Wales. "I he pa,.t." Y Gorphenol Ay. that's a fruitful subject. You have heard of a certain man who went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and who fell among thieves. The proud priest passed him by without heeding his groans or bathing his wounds the haughty Levite left him in his agony. But a good Samaritan-a stranger, a heretic—came by. and saw him lying in his blood, and took compassion on him. lie poured balm into his wounds, and took him and housed and sheltered him. That is the history of Wales in the past. The priests and prelates of the Church left her groaning in her agony, but the heretic healed her bleeding wounds, and gave her home and sh:ltcr-" The present of the Church had been described by the Standard-. Her mission was to proselytise. The future of the Church depended on her Disestablishment, on the severance of her connection with the State. Once the Church is disestablished she will be in a different position with regard to Wales and Welshmen than now. It is then that Nonconformity will be put on its trial. The great wealth, culture, and education of the Church will make themse'ves felt then, and not before. It is said that the Nonconformists will return to the Church, as the bees to the old hive. But why did the bees leave the hive in rhe first instance ? It was because there were too manv wasps (' cacwn') there. And they would not return until the cacwn had gone out. What would become of the clergymen when the Church was disestablished.' He (Mabon) neither knew nor cared—for the clergymen. But he would sav that as long as he preached the gospel of Christ. no clergyman would be uncared for in religious Wales." Excellent, i' faith, in tone and mattery I was very much surprised and disgusted that the speech of Mr. Stuart Rendel—the very best speecn on Disestablishment I have ever heard—was not published verbatim in the dailies. I was look- ing forward with pleasure to an opportuuitv of reading carefully the closely argued and woiirhty speech that he delivered. I hope that steps will be taken to get it published in pamphlet form. Lloyd George and Mabon were far happier as plat- form speakers, but in substance Stuart Renders speech outweighed them all. It was a grave, moderate, convincing indictment against the Church in Wales and her "militant" supporters. There was a touch of oratory about his way of ex- posing the Bishop of St. Asaph's remarks at Exeter. His pamphlet.' he said, is called, The Truth about the Church in Wales." Let us look at the headings of this pamphlet. Here we have ó The decline of Nonconformity.' Tho decay of spiritual life among Nonconfor- mists. "The political character of Dissent,' &c. But this, he added, after a pause, and holding up the bishop s pamphlet. ó. is the truth about the < hurch in Wales." Very amusing, as well as in- structive, was the manner in which he exposed the anomaly of the Queen's position as head of the Church of England. "The mission of the Estab- lished Church is to proselytise, so says the Standard. and of this proselytising Church the Queen is the head. When, therefore, she steps across the borders into-Scotland, she ought to proselytise. But what does the head of the Church do Once she is in Scotland she becomes a Presbyterian." He was equally happy in his exhortations to per- severe in the campaign. The English have acted nnjustlyinthismatter. What they havc given to Presbyterian Scotland and to Catholic Ireland they refuse to Wales. Why have they treated differently towards Wales It was because Wales had been quiet, and Scotland and Ireland restless under the English Episcopacy." The meetings were throughout a brilliant suc- cess, both in the matter of attendance and in the amount of subscriptions, which, during the day. amounted to over £2,000.
CORRESPONDENCE. MR. W. THOMAS (VERE-STREET) AND THI LOCAL BOARD OFFICIALS' SALARIES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR,—In your last week's issue" A Reader' asks me to apologise for making wild statement! at the Local Board meeting, when tho salaries oi our officials was being discussed. I will leave thE public to judge whether I am right or wrong The figures I quoted were given to me by Mr Howe. the district rate collector, for the year end ing March 25th, 1891. As to tha salaries, at oui last Public Works Committee I moved for a returr of the salaries of all the officials of the Board which was supplied to me by Mr. Hughes, the clerk, the total amount being £1,712. Figures speak for themselves.—I am, &c., Vere-street, Cadoxton. WM. THOMAS, CONSERVATISM AT LLANTWIT-MAJOR. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR,—The dual secretary gives a very apt description of Conservatism at Llantwit equal to none. Nothing equals nothing. Inimitable. If the gentleman would purchase a cheap English grammar and devote the time he gives to advising the Liberal party to the study of the English lar" guage, his literary effusions would perchanc? some day gain him the position to which he aspires— namely, a star amongst press men. The writer's bare-faced assertion that tho Standard, (Iraphic, Judu, kc., are still taken by the Conservative reading-room makes one say." Mr. Deere, you are lucky tha.t you are not living in Ceylon."—I am, YOUR CORRESPONDENT. ♦ MOON VERSUS GAS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR,-1 was walking along the road one night this week about ten o'clock when the moon shone beautifully, and I was very much amused at the species of competition in public lighting that was going on. Each gas lamp was alight in spite of the fact that the full moon gave ample light. Oh why does not our Local Board man?ge things differently. There is such a. thing as a calendar, which gives the times of full moon, and during such times we can save up the gas and use it later on other evenings. Tho Local Board, first of all. ordered th. lamps to be alight all through the night, and then this was altered to 12 o'clock. The consequence is that those poor benighted people who wait for the last train from Cardiff on Saturday nights often have to trudge home through pitch darkness. I hope someone will soe this letter who will remedy all this, Just think of the economy. Why actually we might be able to afford to put some gas lamps along some of the dark parts of the much frequented Holton- road.—For I am, ONE WHO LIVES IN THAT NEGLECTED SPOT. ♦ MABON'S DAY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR,—Once a month this day comes, and though we have work in plenty before it, we find slack times after it. This is because the Rhondda colliers stop working, not only on the holiday, but for some couple cf days afterwards—it is because they stop in public-houses drinking and I think what a Welsh minister once told me is very true :— Gwyl Mabon, pa ddaioni—i Wralia A wclwvd o honi Anfuddiol wvl i feddwi, A gwyl y fall, goeliaf fi. It is a pity we should suffer through the miners' holiday.—I am, &c., BILLY FAIRPLAY. —■ PUBLIC LAMPS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR.—May I make use of your valuable columns to call attention to the great want of public lamps between Holton and Barry, and also between Holton and Cadoxton. As things are now, in order to pass from either end of the district to the centre, it is necessary to pass through a belt of darkness, which is a grave inconvenience to the general public.—I am, &c., RATEPAYER. PASSENGER TRAINS TO PONTYPRIDD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR, I see by last week's copy of your really estimable paper the question of backing up the Pontypridd Local Board ;'1 taking steps to compel the Barry Company to run passenger trains between Barry and Pontypridd. Now what does this mean That the railway betwoen these two places is to be utilized for both passenger and mineral traffic, but as the hitter traffic now already is as heavy as can be managod on this route, it is bound to suffer if passenger trains are run. Unless the lines are increased I don't see how passenger trains can be run without very seriously inter- ferring with the coal traffic. Do people realise that the success of Barry Town is intimately bound up with that of the Dock Company, and that if the latter suffer the district will as well. If so I should look with a jealous eye upon any- thing done to hamper the Dock Company in the present time of keen competition when the best claim our dock has in preference to others is that coal can Lo brought down from the pits. and shipped more expeditiously than elsewhere—I am, &.c., NEUTRAL. Cadoxton. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR,—I see that the question of railway com- munication from Pontypridd to Barry Dock is to be considered at the next mc-ithly meeting of the Local Board. I am as anxious as anyone to see a through communication between Pontypridd and Barry Dock, but cannot forget that the through services of passenger trairs between Pontypridd and Barry would necessitate a diminution of mineral traffic. Let us wait until we see the position of Barry as a coal exporter thoroughly established before we interfere in any way which may hamper the Barry Company in competing with their rivals.—Thanking you in anticipation. I am, kc., A READER. TEMPERANCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. Silt.—I should like to write a word to compli- ment one of your contributors upon his excellent article on total abstinence. I allude, of course, to Mr. Ton Evans. There are just one or two things which I cannot understand. Alcohol is no more the good creature of God than chalk is cheese." Why Because it's an artificial product. Well, sir, what about cheese ? What about sugar and lots of other things ? Then. again, surely good work is done by moderate drinkers. What about Gladstone, Disraeli, Bismarck. Carlyle. and, in fact, most people Then is it not a fact that the late well-known temperance reformer, Dr. Car- penter, in his later days, anandoned total ab stinence and partook in his old days a little wine, perhaps for his stomach's sake. Drunkenness is such a curse to our land that every means should be taken to lessen it, but arguments in favour of total abstinence must consist of the proven and nothing but the proven. Excuse just a hurried note.—Yours. &c., C. Cardiff.
THEATRE ROYAL, CADOXTON.
THEATRE ROYAL, CADOXTON. For good. clever acting the company that now occupies the stage at the New Theatre Roval, Cadoxton. this week have not been surpassed, even if equaPed, in this district. The piece that is played is Mr. Rass Challis' splendid drama -The Curate." Mr. E. Parker-Royston. p, the muscular Curate, played a difficult part extremely well Mr. Roy Fortescue played the villain u Westwooel" so effectively that he was heartily hissed—as every good villain is at provincial theatres Mr. New- man Maurice was very clever as Simon Peter Maggs," with piccolo solo, eliciting a tremendous encore and a word of p.iise is due to Messrs Cheetham, Conway, and Vane for their delineation of George Verner," a fine old English gentleman Sergeant Snipe." and 11 Benjamin Bendlebow," respectively. "'May Verner" was nobly and pathetically represented by Miss Loyal Ferre while Miss Gray and Miss Everitt gave a most faithful representation of •• Florctte" and Katina Voelski." To hear such a good imitation of the French and Russian accents and character- istics was a liberal education in itself Miss Aggie Emerson as 11 Dick the TrumpoteiJ"' \Vas simply delicious, and the dying scene—the son dying at his father s hands, the curate's denuncia- tions, tho remorse and agony of the father and tho last words and song of the dying boys, who sees bright visions of his mother and the better land far. far away"—touched the hearts of the vast audience. Everyone should see the » Curate which is about the best thing all round that has ever appeared in this district.

MOUNTAIN ASH LOCAL ROAltD.
MOUNTAIN ASH LOCAL ROAltD. The fortnightly meeting of the Mountain Ash Local Board was held on Menclay last. Mr. Alder- man G. Jones in the chair. There were also pre- sent—Messrs. G. Evans, James Davies, J. W. Jones, W. R. Beith, W. P. Bowden, W. Little, and lr >r. -morgan. THE NEW WATER WORK". ¡ The Chairman reported that the Board had visited the new water works at Ynysybwl. and found that the works progressed satisfactorily. PROPOSED NEW MARTCET. Mr. W. P. Bowden said thut the Market Sub- Committee b id considered and selected a site for the proposed market, but it was thought that it would be better to convene a public meeting be- fore proceeding further with the scheme.—The Clerk said that the matter might go to the vote if anyone challenged the action of the Board.—It was therefore decided that Mr. Bowden be in- structed to call a public meeting to discuss the question. XEW COUNTY COUNCIL MEMBER. The Clerk read a special report with reference to this matter, in the course of which he said that it was premature to apply for more representation en the County Council at present, at least until the alteration of the boundary question had been settled, for he found that at present thev had a representation of one councillor to every 8.747 inhabitants: whilst the representation of Ponty- pridd and Ystradyfodvvg was considerably less than this and even if they decided to move in the matter, it would now he too late to have more re- presentation at the next election.—On the motion of the Chairman, it was decided to act upon tha clerk's advice. A DANGER AT ABERDARE JUNCTION. The Clerk read a letter from Mr. James Bell, C.E.. with reference to certain dangerous spots On the road near Aberdare Junction, and it was re- solved that a deputation consisting cf the Chair- man and Mr. Morgan should wait upon the Chair- man with the plans and report of the Board's engineer, and explain the position of matter to that gentleman, and also that the deputation be authorised to obtain photographs of the danger- ous places in order to lay the same before the Chairman of the Council. PERIPATETIC LECTURES. The Clerk reported that the town of Mountain Ash had been included in the list in which peri- patetic lectures should be delivered, and it was resolved that the use of tho Assembly-rooms of the Town-liall should be allowed, free ef cost, for any public gathering called together to further the cause of technical and intermediate education. SURVEYOR'S REPORT. The Surveyor reported that the culvert at Ynysybwl had been examined, and he recommended that the narrow portion of the same should bo abandoned, and be substituted by a culvert- three feet in diameter in a direction which would- form a more obtuse angle.—The drain from Ffrwd to Davanlas had been partly completed, and the work would have progressed with greater rapidity had it noj been for the detention in transil of the pipes. The thre, inch main at Cacgarw was also being satisfactorily proceeded with. and 350 feet of the gas main at Cefnpennar had been completed. —Plans were also submitted for tho approval of the Board.—The report, as read, was then adopted. SCARLET FEVER. The Medical Officer reported that 20 more new cases of scarlet fever had come under his notice— three more than the previous foitnight; also one of diphtheria and one of membranous croup. He had also ordered a case of diseased ham belonging to Messrs. Davies. of Penrhiw, to be destroyed, as Leing unfit for fcoo. The Inspector of Nuisances' report was also read.
ANNIVERSARY SERVICES were he'd in connection with the Rhos Baptist Chapel, Mountain Arh, on Sun- day and Monday la.->t, when the pulpit was occupied by t'-ie Revs. Aaron Morgan, Maesteg D. Davies, Porth; and H. Avon Roberts, "Abera von. Powerful sermons were delivered to crowded congregations, and collec- tions towards defraying the debt of the chapel amoun- ted to a considerable sum.

Melrose-street, Llanover-street, Oban-street, and Kenilworth-road be advertised for. — Dr. O Donnell seconded. After some discussion. Coun- cillor Meggitt/noved, and Mr. J. Robinson seconded, that the owners of Kenilworth-road be placed on the same footing as the owners of High-street, Barry, that is to say, that they be asked to finish the private improvements at once where houses have been erected, and that they shall be prepared to enter into an agreement to do the rest when called upon by the Board.—Plans for private improvements in Llewellyn road and Davies- street were submitted and approved.—It was de- cided to give Mr. Osborne notice to relinguish his tenancy in Quarella-stre^t, and to utilise the site in Barry-road for storage and slaughter-house purposes, the surveyor being instructed to pre- pare a report and plan for the next meeting.—A letter was read from Mr. Grimes in reference to the plan of the premises being built for the National Provincial Bank at Barry Dock. After some discussion it was decided, on the motion of Mr. George Thomas, to pass the plan. The Surveyor reported that Mr. Barstow and him- self had seen Messrs. Buckle and Norman, who had agreed to pull down their back boundary wall and rebuild it 3ft. farther back, and of brick instead of stone, on receipt of ;£ 15. It was resolved to pay this amount. The Surveyor also reported that the Barry Es- tate Company were willing to give the necessary land for widening the road leading from Windsor- road to Harbour Cottage, but that they were not prepared to build the repairing walls. A letter was read from Messrs. Evans and Phillips asking the Board to extend the widening of the road towards Barry Church. It was re- solved that the surveyor should report on the whole matter to the next Public Works Committee. Plans for private improvements in Porthkerry Road were submitted, but no resolution was ar- rived at.—A letter was read from Messrs. Morgan Brothers, Vere-street, complaining of the dilatory manner in which the Board proceeded with Church-road, between Colebrook-road and Cadox- ton Common, and asking the Board to expedite the improvements. Dr. O'Donnell pointed out that the Board had commissioned the surveyor to do the work.—It was decided that the Board should do che cleansing, &c.. in Northcote-street, Lower Harvey-street. Holme-street. Foster-street, Courtenay-street. Jenner-street, Moxon-street. and Weston-street, and those be declared public high- ways.—A letter was read from Mr. Garnet com- plaining of the want of light in Daniel-street and Beverley-street.—The Surveyor reported that gas lamps were up long ago, but that the Gas Com- pany had not yet laid their main, and it was im- possible to light the streets until they did.—Plans for the extension of Newland-street, showing access to Evan-street and Richard-street, were sub- mitted and approved.—Plans for the construction of new streets on the Porthkerry Estate were submitted and approved. Mr. Cawsey appeared before the com- mittee with a view to coming to some agreement as to Mr. Cawsey's land on Weston-hill. It will be remembered that the Board determined to make a 50ft. instead of a 40ft. read, as was first intended over Weston-hill. They applied, .there- fore, to Mr. Cawsey for an additional five feet, which they were promised unconditionally, accor- ding to the Board, but on certain conditions accor- ding to Mr. Cawsey. Mr. Cawsey now wanted £220 compensation for the injury done to his property. —Mr. George Thomas moved, and Mr. W. Thomas seconded, that a sum of £20 be paid to Mr. Cawsey as compensation for each of the four houses built, and -1.:20 for each of the two houses which were intended to be built, when they had been erected. —Mr. Barstow moved, and Dr. O'Donnell seconded, an amendment that the sum be reduced to £ 10. —The motion was carried.—The Chairman then informed Mr. Cawsey of the offer of the committee, which was made without prejudice, and subject to the confirmation of the Board, but Mr. Cawsey refused the terms. It was decided to do the cleansing, &c., in Daniel- street, Beverley-street, and Abingdon-street, and to take them over by the Board. An extension of time was granted to Mr. David Love to finish his contract on the Holton-road until the next Board meeting, but the notice that had been given him was withdrawn.—On the recommendation of the Surveyor, the committee approved of the altera- tions in a house in Moxon-street, and of plans for houses in Forster-street and Harvey-street.—The plans for Lloyds Bank, in Thompson-street, though not conforming in one detail with the bye-laws, were passed.—It was decided to recom- mend the Board to appoint a valuer to fix tho amount of compensation due to Mr. Gecrge Thomas and Son for damage do-ie at Biglis Farm. —A letter was read from Mr. O. G. Fern, High- street. Barry, complaining of damage done to his furniture on the 28th of August by the overflow of water from the Board's sewers.—The Clerk was directed to wrue to Mr. Fern, stating that the sewer pipes had been enlarged, which would pre- vent a edition of the nuisance.—The Clerk was ¡ instructed to supply the Royal Commission oil Labour with the information which was required. —The Clerk was instructed to forward Mr. Pirn's letter as to the state of Cadoxton brook (which has already appeared in the Star} to Mr. Forrest.—The question of allotments was adjourned to the next meeting of the Board.—Several applications were received for permission to lay down granolithic curb and channelling, but in each case it was re- fused. It was decided not to cement the outside of the house in Moxon-street recently injured by the construction of a. sewer.—Letters were received from Mr. W. Saunders and Messrs. Bruton and Williams. SLAUGHTER-HOUSE COMMITTEE. A meeting of this committee was held at the Local Board offices on Tuesday afternoon at four o'clock. There were present—Mr. Geo. Thomas, chairman of the committee Mr. J. Barstow, Mr. •T. A. Hughes, clerk and Mr. J. C. Pardoe, sur- veyor.—Mr. Barstow stated that Mr. Farrer had purchased some of the timber now standing in the two fields leased by the Local Board from Mr. Nicholas Jenkins, and he was desirous of not cut- ting the trees for the present. He was willing to undertake to cut the trees at any time when re- quested to do so, and also to make good all dam- age. — The Chairman agreed to this, on the understanding that the trees be re- moved in any case before Christmas. The following tenders were received for the erection of a temporary slaughter-house :—Messrs. Glover and Son. Warwick. -C218 5s. Od. Mr. Isaac Dixon. £192 Os. Od. Messrs. Rowell and Co.. £ 155, Os. Od. Mr. Lysaght. BristcL :t139 Os. Od. Messrs. Francis Morton and Co.. ;0 Tl lIs. Od. After going through all the tenders carefully it was decided to recommend Mr. Lysaght's tender to the Board for acceptance, on condition that he satisfied the surveyor as to the thickness of his scantlings.—The Chairman said that he thought that the outer doors ought to be much stronger than shown in the plan, and he proposed that such stronger doors be obtained, and that the contractor be paid extra for them.—This was agreed to.— The Surveyor submitted a pbn :,hewing" the laving out of the whole of the two fields leased from" Mr. Nicholas Jenkins. The plan included a kittle market of about the same size as the Roath cattle market, a large yard with sheds for a depot for the Local Board, a permanent slaughterhouse, and a public mcrtuary.—After considerable dis- cussion. it was resolved to make a 20-foot road across the fields leading from Barry- road to Court-road. such read to bo a private road with gates at each end. It was also decided to recommend the Board to at once erect an open shed for the purpose of keeping the Local Board crats and the steam roller, and also to erect a temporary mortuary.—The Clerk pointed out that a public mortuary was very much needed, and that on two or three occasions, in the cases of dead sailors, the body had to be placed in a shed in the cemetery, which was not at all suited for that purpose.—The Chairman thought it would be wise to have the public mortuary near the dock.—The Clerk agreed, and suggested that when the permanent Infectious Diseases Hospital was erected near Colcot. it might lie possible to use the present site for a public mortuary. It was unanimously agreed that a temporary mortuary should be placed on the fields referred to.—It was also decided that a shed for the fire-extimruishing appliances for Cadoxton should be provided.— This concluded the business, and the committee adjourned at half-past five.

INEW DEPARTURE IN ELEC-3 TRIC…
I NEW DEPARTURE IN ELEC- 3 TRIC LIGHTING AT BARRY, INTERVIEW WITH MR. DAVID LOWDON. Hearing that the Barry Dock Graving Company had their dock lighted up for the first time last Thursday night, a representative of the South Utdrs Star sought an interview on Tuesday last with Mr. David Lowdon, the courteous superin- tendent of the Graving Dock Works. Mr. Lowdon first took the Star representative into the engine 1 rooms, and in that almost stiflng atmosphere ex- plained to him the mysteries of dynamos, and volts, and amperes. The dynamos are driven by a horizontal high-speed engine, fitted with a sensi- tive governor. One dynamo gives 4,500 watts, and the other, which is for lighting one lamp, 750 watts. Conveniently near the engine there is a neatly arranged switch-board, with main cut-outs, voltmjtre, >5>;c., and from this are led off the main circuit to six arc lamps. Both dynamos are of the horseshoe type, with ring armatures, made of thin discs of charcoal iron and wound with -No. 16 B W G wire. When once more they had emerged into the comparatively pure air of the fitters' room, the Star man asked what was new in the new arrangements. It's this," said Mr. Lowdon, the installation- that means," he added, seeing the Star man's puzzled look, the whole lighting apparatus—the installation consists of six arc lamps." I'm very sorry," interrupted the Star repre- sentative, but I'm afraid I am very ignorant of these things. Will you kindly tell me what an arc lamp means ?" With pleasure," said Mr. Lowdon. The ordi- nary lamp the one that is generally seen in shops and houses-is called a glow lamp. The arc lamp, on the other hand, consists of two pieces of carbon, which the current renders incandescent." Do these pieces of carbon wear out ?" Yes each arc lamp will burn out in sixteen hours. I, Well, I suppose that the light they give is much stronger th^n that of the glow lamps Yes that's why they are always used in the open air. They are the lamps that you see round the Barry and Penarth Docks." What is the difference in the light of the two lights—the glow lamp light and this light, "A glow lamp is of 50 candle power, while our arc lamp are 2,000 candle power. This," he added, pressing a button or something in the dim light' so as to illuminate the office with a splendid electric light, li This is the ordinary glow lamp of 50 candle power, and you can just imagine the power of these new arc lamps." Arc these arc lamps of recent invention ?" Oh, no they have been invented sometime ago, but there are several different patents. Ours are the Brokie Pell arc lamps. They are suspended from poles 40ft. from the ground, and are fitted with raising and lowering gear and a platform." What's the use of all that, may I ask ?" in- quired our representative. To enable the lamps being easily attended to. The lamps can also be lowered so as to concentrate the j light on any special work that may be going on." o a Very useful," baldly remarked the Star man, but Mr. Lowdon went on unheeding. When found necessary they can be fixed along the bottom of the dock with a suitable conductor. so that heavy repairs can be erected with e'.espatch." And. of course the light being better the Company will be able to dock and undock vessels with greater safety 01^ certainly. Tho better the light the greater tne safety. lou haven't told me anything cf those machines downstairs that generate the electricity, Mr. Lowdon." J Oh, yea. the dynamos. Well. there are two of them, one for 15 amperes and 300 volts." "Im ashamed to say interrupted the Star man," but I've clean forgotten what you said amperes and volts were." The ampere is the unit of the electric current, and volt is the pressure. Well. one of the dynamos is for 15 amperes and 300 volts, and the other for 15 amperes and 50 volts." W hat was^ the rise of the temperature after the first run inquired our representative. After an eight hours' run," was the answer, the rise was 30 deg. Fahrenheit, and the sparking at the brushes nil. The revolutions were 940, the current density in armature 2,350, and in the magnets 1.050." il Whom were these things supplied by queried our reporter. The lamps and cables were supplied by Wood- house and Ransome, of London, through their Cardiff agent, Mr. Rose, of West Bute-street, but both the machines and the whole of the installa- tiou have been designed by inc. and were con- structed by the company's workmen under my supervision." "That's a rather unusual thing, I should say. Mr. Lowdon," said the reporter. I- Well," said Mr. Lowdon. looking just a little pleased and proud, I don't think it has been done in any other graving dock in the kingdom." I suppose the men had no experience in such work before. None whatever they are simply the company's ordinary workmen." I congratulate you heartily, Mr. Lowdon, and I hope you are satisfied with the working of the new arrargement." Yes everything is working satisfactorily aft yet. The dynamos run cool and sparkless, and the lamps give a steady and brilliant light." After thanking Mr. Lowdon for his courtesy, the Slur man went out into the twilight.
GRIFFITHS, B. G. LIVER PILLS. Why do you suffer from Indigestion; Why do you suffer from Bile Why do you suffer from Depression of Spirits ? I Why do you suffer from Pains between the Shoulder Blades, Wind in the Stomach, Nasty Taste in your Mouth in the Morning, Constipation, Bilious Headaches, Loss of Appetite, and Nervous Affections ? The whole of the above symptoms are caused by a. sluggish and torpid liver, and as a very large number of adults suiter to a more or less extent from a sluggish liver, it becomes to the public generally a matter of great necessity that we should know of some medicine which, by removing the cause, will also remove the .effects produced by a slow or torpid liver. It woulel be necessary that such a medicine would have the power of gently stimulating the liver, opening its clogged passages, and promoting the secretion of healthy bile All those properties are to be found in GRIFFITHS' B. G. LIVER PILLS, which are prepared from purely vegetable ingredients. They will gently regulate the bowels, stimulate the liver, strengthen the stomach, and give tone and vigour to the digestive organs. The following is one of numerous Testimonials that the Proprietor has received as to their efficacy from Mr. W. Williams, Boot Manufacturer, Griffiths Town Pontypool:— Dear Sir,—Having suffereil, from the effect of j sluggish liver for many year.; with pains between the shoulder blades, bile, drowsiness, and indigestion, and having tried several doctors and many different kinds of medicine without avail. I was at last persuaded to take some of your B. G. LIVER PILLS, and am happy to say that they have done me more good than any- 1 thing I have yet taken. I have had great pleasure in recommending them to several of my friends who have i suffered from the same complaints, and they have found them to be almost invaluable.—I beg to remain, 1 dear sir, yours sincerely, W. WILLIAMS." On account of their mild, aperient, and yet most effectual action, they are found to make a wonderfully saccessful Family Pill. ( PREPARED ONLY BY ] B.
