THE LATE REV. D. CHARLES DAVIES. It is not only the denomination to which he belonged, but Wales generally, that has suffered by the death of the Rev. D. Charles Davies." So said the Vicar of Bangor in his sermon last Sunday, and the words will find an echo in the heart of every Welshman. By his death Wales has lost a profound theologian, a deep thinker, and a good Christian. There have been many more popular preachers in our country, but never anyone who has shown such a thorou h grasp of his subject, or one who has shown more power and knowledge in its treatment. Dr. Charles Davies came of an historic family. He was the grandson of David Charles, of Carmarthen, the brother of the great Charles o'r Bala, and lie worthily maintained the traditions of his family. When the late Dr. Lewis Edwards opened a school at Bala in 1837, his young kinsman, David Charles Davies, then eleven years old, was the first to be enrolled on the books. And now, when Dr. Lewis Edwards' son is about inaugurating a new era in theolo- gical study in Wales, by throwing Bala College open to all denominations, without regard to sect; or sex," as Charles Davies cnce said, it was but natural that David Charles Davies should have been asked to preach at the open- ing services. Death's fell hand, however, has prevented that from taking place, and now when the new students are beginning their work at Bala College, Charles Davies is lying in his honoured grave at Aberystwith. H;" was not a life of many incidents. He lived t-le life of a scholar and .a student, con- scientiously doing his work as a pastor, but doing the work more from a sense of duty than from any inclination. He disliked visiting his members, but he never neglected this portion of his work. He was much more at home, how- ever, in the work to which he devoted the last two years of his life, viz., teaching. He was always a great reader, and was one who di- gested well all that he read. He was not a reader who shirked difficulties, but he con- quered by facing them. The articles that appeared from his pen in the -troc Welsh reviews were not written in a popular style, but he was always clear and intelligible to the thinking reader. His sermons could never be understood without an effort, but their substance was good enough to deserve a great effort to understand. His death at the age of G5 will probably introduce great changes within his denomination. For some years the Methodists have been speaking of amalgamating the two colleges of Bala and Trevecca the antagonism between North and South Wales has hitherto been too strong to effect this amalgamation, and the personality of Chas. Davies has been too much felt to allow the college of which he was principal to be merged into the other. Now, however, that this great personality is removed, it seems probable that. the amalgamation of the two colleges will be effected.
THE PROPOSED INCORPORATION.—At the next ( meeting of the Pontypridd Local Hoard. a l.rge and influential deputation from the Chamber of Trade will wait upon the members and ask their help in fur- tliedng the p :oposed scheme for the incorporation oE the town. the town.
LOCAL NOTES. The meeting of the Health- Committee of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Boctrd: last Friday even- ing was an important as well as an exciting one. The committee very wisely decided to take pro- f ceedings in the case of an alleged exposure of a child suffering from an infectious disease. It can- not be too generally knowa that it is a criminal offence to endanger the lives of the inhabitants of any locality by exposing any person who is suffer- ing from an infectious disease. This is the second case that has cropped up in the neighbourhood of Cadoxton within a comparatively short time. It, was also decided to take proceedings in a consider- able number of cases where the inspector of nuisances' notices had not been complied wit: There is probably no committee of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board which is so really impor- tant as the Health Committee. If they do their duty without fear or favour they will be enabled to make the new town a thoroughly healthy and a thoroughly sanitary one. The fact of the town being a new one saves it from a great many of the evils which are generally inseparably connected with any old town, such as narrow thoroughfares, kc. In the district of Barry there is a good system of drainage, a good watei supply, and the town is very healthily situated, being built largely on the side of a hill overlooking the Channel. In spite of the many unsanitary con- ditions that have existed the death rato has been very low. and there is every reason to hope that with proper care the death rate should be particularly low in the future. The magistrates on Monday, at the adjourned Licensing Sessions at Penarth, decided to refuse z, every new application for licences. This has been a source of much regret to some and unqualified satisfaction to others. There has been of late years a strong reaction in favour of diminishing the number of licensed premises. Most districts have too many licensed houses. We are, therefore, very glad to see that the local magistrates are not eager to flood a new locality with public-houses at what may fairly be called the commencement of its existence. It is very much easier to refuse to grant a licence than it is to take away a licence from an existing public-house. In the latter case there is always a certain amount of hardship on the person who loses the licence. There were alto- gether nine applications, including the application for the Barry Refreshment-room licence, from the district of Barry. All the important applications were from Barry, the Penarth cases being simply transfers. We hope that next year the magistrates will'arrange for an adjourned licensing meeting to be held in the new- police-court at Barry Dock- There is no reason why applicants and their solicitors and witnesses should be put to the trouble and inconvenience of attending at St. Nicholas or Penarth for the purpose of supporting' applications which apply exclusively to Barry,and which could be heard just as well, if not under better circumstances, locally.
IN AND AROUND BARltY. It must be said that the Doctor scored over Messrs. Garnett and Barstow at the Health Com- mittee on Friday. When did you see this nuisance in front of my stable?" he asked. "RepeatedlY," said Mr. Barstow. Mention a date ?" But the date was not forthcoming. Mr. Barstow tried to score by observing that the stable was too near bakehouse, but it was rather crushing to be re- minded that the stable was built before the bake- house, and that the plans of the bakehouse had been submitted to and approved of by Mr. BarstoW when he was surveyor to the Rural Sanitary Authority Oh, the miseries of the School Board Nearly 300 applicants for masterships I hear strange tales of the doings of the sub-committee elected to boil down the 300 into 40. I am told that the Board-room is being- crammed with refreshments of all sorts, that each member is to bring in a pillow on Friday night, that the local washerwomen are busy preparing- clean nightcaps, and, more than alL that one member of the sub-committee has pre- vailed on his wife to go r.nd visit a friend-so- afraid he was of an inevitable curtain lecture. May unerring wisdom direct their minds, and may their choice be good I am very pleased to hear that the Penny Savings Bank established at the Cadoxton Board Schools since the adoption of the Free Education Act is proving a sig-nal success. But parents are dissatisfied with one thing—and that is, that the children are not supplied with cards; conse- quently, there is practically no check whatever upon the amounts paid in. However, this littlo matter will easily be remedied by Mr. Ewebank, t<f\ it will be a very easy thing to have cards pruned, and in order to defray the expense they c&R bÇ
