I JOTTINGS OX POLITICS. Too late too late Yon lingered on the roarl too long, You lingered at the gate. The successor of St. Augustine, his Grace of Canterbury, has visited Xorth Wales, and told the Rhyl Congress that Canterbury will not suffer its ecclesiastical province to be dismembered with impunity. Well would it have been for Wales and Canterbury if the successors of St. Augustine had paid the same attention to the religious interests of Wales that they have ever shown in asserting their metropolitan rights. Prtrcssc non prod!re (to boss it. not to serve us) was the policy of Canter- bury in the thirteenth century, as the Welsh princes complained to Rome. The very same com- plaint the Pontypridd conference made last month. In the thirteenth century the Archbishop of Can- terbury took action in Wales, riding over the country with Norman knights, and celebrating the Mass at the High Altars of our cathedrals to assert their supremacy. The work was done, the old Celtic Church abolished, the four Welsh bishoprics were reduced to the position of four dioceses of the See of Canterbury. The Primate came in 1284 to witness the extinction of our nationality, and then he let us alone—left the people to darkness and heathendom—left us alone for centuries. In the seventeenth century Wales, rightly or wrongly, fought the brittle of the Established Church. It was the passive resistance of Wales that paralysed the Puritanism of the Crom- wellian days. and put the Bishops and Archbishops of England back in the palaces from which their predecessors had been driven. But Canterbury had no gratitude. Englishmen were often ap- pointed to Welsh sees before the seventeenth century. From the seventeenth century to our own time they were always appointed. Canter- bury did nothing to aid our great religious revival, but over the drunken person and the absentee bishops it threw the shield of its protection. Canterbury has no future in Wales. Disestab- lishment will soon prove that the Welsh parson is now a Welshman. Almost in spite of himself he is growing a democrat. After disestablishment those who pay the piper will call the tune. The connection between the Episcopal Church and Canterbury will be purely nominal whether it will be even nominal depends a good deal on the behaviour of Canterbury. One thing at least is certain the Welsh Episcopal Church v will require a head. It will require a national synod or convocation. It will not take long even to convince the honest Ritualist that an Archbishop of St. Davi'ds and a National Con- vocation will not be too dearly bought at the expense of the tithe rent charge. Canterbury, let Welsh Churchmen remember, is not fighting for them. The successor of St. Au- gustin. as such, can have little love for the descend- ants of the British bishops who rejected the founder of his see so what the Archbishop wants in Wales is supremacy, a supremacy that has been a curse to the Welsh people, and a even greater curse to the Welsh Church. The Welsh Methodist of the future may say. I was born free but it will be a prouder boast for a future Archbishop of a free Welsh Episcopal Church, a successor of whom Giraldus would have been proud, to say, !1 With a great price obtained I this freedom." ALIQUIUS.
IN AND AROUND BARHY. I congratulate Mr. Higman on his well-deserved appointment as head-master of the Holton School. Some weeks ago I referred to the matter before, and urged that carter is paribus a Welshman ought to be appointed. At the time I was unaware that Mr. Higman was applying for the post. When I heard he was. I felt that no one could have such a claim as an old well-tried servant who applied for pro- motion. I congratulate both Mr. Higman and the Board on his appointment. I am glad, too, that Mr. Higman's appointment does not deprive the Board of the chance of engaging the services of Mr. Rees, Llanarth, a Welshman, a scholar, and one of the most successful teachers in the whole of the principality. The chairman's remarks were not a bit too flattering, and both as a Welshman, and one interested in education, I hail with pleasure the appointment of Mr. Rees to the Barry Dock School. The boilermakers' dinner, on Tuesday night at the Barry Hotel, was a most jolly one. The catering of Mr. Ditvies was most excellent, and my mouth still wate-s at the remembrance of that luscious Underdone beef. The memory of that has prevented my eating a square meal ever since a chop is such a poor substitute. The officers of the society were most kind and attentive, and inquired with such tender care whether one wanted more to eat or drink that no one, unless he had a heart of stone, could refuse them. Mr. Morris Jones, the president, deserves special mention. The aLter-dinner p o- ceedings were most enjoyable. The best speech was made bv Mr. Fox. who possesses the gift of eloquence and an Irish accent; and the best song Was Dr. Gore's Kil'alloe," which was loudly, not to say boisterously, encored. Very funny, too, it must have been to see the president and the only member of the press present standing up. alone among the Saxons, enthusiastically joining in the cvdo-an" of IV n Wlad fy Xhadau," which was ■splendidly rendered bv Mr. Dan Phillips. A new feature—and a very good one—was the printed programme. The Wenvoe ploughing match was a great suc- 'cess in spite of the weather and the roads. I should say that fully 1.500 were present on the -aeld. and I was glad to see, down among the refreshment tent, the active form of Mr. Arthur Williams. I must say I never was treated more kindly in my Efe than by the committee that day, and IhoTJO that other will lake a leaf out of their book. The dinner in the evening was also a huge -success, and the catering of Mr. Noah Jenkins was all that could be desired The secretary desserves the utmost credit for the excellent; arrangements. Wednesday night I journeyed down to Llancar- fan to hear Mr. Arthur Williams speak. I don't think he was in such good fettle as he was at Barry Dock some time ago, but the way he demolished the mean subterfuges'' of Chamberlain and Clarke was a treat to hear. The member is great when indignant and the sophistries and misrepresenta- tionof the Tory champions had evidently, as he •said," stirred his heart to its depth." Mn Price made an excellent chairman, and his allusion to the change of the name of Wales from poor little "Wales to Gallant little Wales was most happy. Mr. Griffiths is the licensed joker of the village. Mr. Williams," he said. comes of a good family. He had an uncle, his name was Coffin. And in it the' Cardiff Tories were buried they were not 'quite dead, for they are still kicking, but they'll never be of any account again. So it was with Air. Williams. Sir John opposed him, and Sir John is politically buried. A stripling opposed him. and the stripling is no more. The Jubilee Knight will opposed him. and his coffin is ready."—Mr. Lewis and Mr. Jenkins, of Rhoose, also made some timelv remarks. I am told it was the best political meeting ever held in Llancarfan.
BARRY. WE understand that Mr. R. Linscombc, of Cwm- harry Farm, near Barry, is about leaving that holding, to remove to the neighbourhood of Haucarfan.

SHIPPING FACILITIES.—As evidence of the com- plete facilities now offered at Barry Dock for dealing with all kinds of cargo, it is noteworthy that this week the s.s. Wuiidaenth arrived from Gefle with a heavy cargo of deal, comprising in all 658 standards, and that she was discharged in 45^ hours. The cargo was for Mr F. E. Aitken, timber merchant. BARRY FOOTBALL CLUB ACCOMMODATION — Replying to a statement made in a Cardiff con- tempofary complaining of the accommodation at the disposal of visiting clubs, Mr. F. John, the secretary of the Barry Club, writes: "Referring to the report re dressing-room provided at Barry, in which it was stated that the Cardiff Stars were accommodated with a coal cellar, &c, I beg to state on behalf of our club and proprietor, that it was a most erroneous report, and that they were supplied with plenty of baths, soar), toivels, seats. &c. The room that they were accommodated with is 18ft. by 14ft., and is fitted out with gas. ventilators, fireplace, water taps. &c., and not a coal cellar 12ft. square,' as stated in the report. Our club's usual room was occupied on Saturday by the 'Alpine Choir.' The only room unoccupied and convenient to hold both the teams was the said coal cellar.' This room has never been used as a coal cellar, but was intended for a kitchen. I think it would have been more of a manly action if the aboye club's correspondent would have complained to me first on the matter instead of trying to disgrace our club and worthy proprietor." HARVEST 'THANKSGIVING SERVICES. The annual harvest festival of the Barry Congregational Church was held on Sunday last, and was attended with a success that far exceeded the mosu sanguine expectations of the friends worshipping there. The morning and evening services were conducted by the Rev. J. Williamson, M.A., of Charles-street Chapel, Cardiff, and that in the after won bv Mr. Herbert Stowell. M.A., of Glasgow University, brother of the Rev. J. H. Stowell, pastor of the Church. Large con- gregations attended, particularly in the evening, when every part of the building was crowded to its utmost capacity by attentive worshippers. J Jie singing, which was exceedingly good, consisted of special harvest hymns and anthems, and was led by a very efficient choir, ablv conducted by Mr. J. C. Meggitt. The church was beautifully decorated for the occasion with all kinds of field and garden produce, and a very pretty effect was produced, much credit reflecting on the ladies who carded out this work, notably Mrs. Sibbcr- ing Jones, Mrs. Meggitt, Mrs. Paraoe, Miss Waldron, &c. A great improvement has been made in the chapel by the decoration of a large wood screen at the back of the pulpit. The decorations consist of a centre tablet, with a Lincusta Walton border, with "bosses" as the corners and centres, painted with a ground colour of a pale bluish green, the hor,ler" bei ig picked in gold and terra cotta. and the Lord's Prayer in the same colours written in "German te-t" hand. with ornamental capitals. Above the tab'et is a highly- finished scroll, with the words, "Worship the Lord," written on. and surrounding the whole is a painted architrave of fine, so "t colors, of various tints, well blended together, the whole work forming a very hand- some improvement. This work has been carried out by a member of the permanent staff of Messrs. F. W. Taylor and Co., by whom it has been presented to the Church. The lower part of the screen has been draped with crimson carta"ns, suspended on polished brass rods, and is the gift of a friend. A generous response was made by the congregation to the appeal made to them, the collecting lealising £13153.

LORD WINDSOR.—The time of Lord Windsor, tin chairman of the Barry Company, was pretty well occupied last Saturday, and he got through more work than an ordinary man would ca-e to go in for. He was engaged deep in private business up to four o'c'ock: he then opened the Cardiff Art Exhibition, delivering an able discourse on art, and afterwards drove off to open a new Conservative Club at Cathays. The last act' was all the more commendable, seeing that his lordship had less than an hour's notice. Sir Edward Clarke was to have opened the club, but was called away to attend the funeral of the lute First Lord of the Treasury. FOLLICK'S is the Genuine Shop for all kinds of Clothing. Corner of Barry-road and Mail street.—Advt.

Stowell, M.A., pastor of the Barry Congregational Church, preached on Sunday morning and evening last at the English Congregational Mission-room, Cadoxton. Mr. Stowell created a remarkably favourable impres- sion. BURGLARY AT BIGLIS.—A burglary of a daring character has oeen committed on premises belonging to the Barry and Cadoxton Gas and Water Company. It appears that some person or perilOUS broke into the company 's pumping-station at Biglis, near Cac1oxton, and stole therefrom a valuable clock. In addition to this considerable damage was wilfully done to the pumping plant at the station, and a reward of £10 has been offered by the directors of the company for any information which may lead to the arrest and con- viction of the guilty parties. STILL IT GOES ON.—At Cadoxton police-court on Thursday last, Robert Smith, of Commercial-road, Cadoxton, was charged with selling beer without a licence on Sunday, the 27th September. Evidence was giyen by Police-constables Roberts and Stephen Davies that a number of persons visited the house on that date, and that a quantity of beer and empty casks was found on the premises. After some argu- ment s, fire of,.£5 and costs was imposed.—Mr. Lloyd Meyrick, Cardiff, appeared for the police.

SULLY. LORD WIMBORNK'S IRON ORE SEARCH. Lord Wimborne and those who were associated with him in sinking for iron ore on Lord De Ramsey's estate at Abbot's Ripton. Huntingdonshire, have at last aban- doned their efforts. The trial shaft, which was sunk by a Rhondda Valley contractor, had reached a depth of 218 feet, and with a three-inch drill an additional 45 feet had been penetrated, making 2G3 feet alto- gether. There being no sign of any paying quantity of the ore at this depth, it was decided not to proceed any further. The progress of the work had been watched with interest by the county generally; and great regret is felt at the failure of a venture from which so much had been hoped. The shaft has entailed an expenditure of about £600. It is under- stood that the promoters are still sanguine of finding iron ore in the neighbourhood, and that they will shortly set about sinking another experimental shaft at Ramsey.
DYXAS POWYS. AUCTION SALE.—On Tuesday next Mr. D. T. Alexander will let by auction, at Malt House Farm, Dinas Powis, in convenient lots, the pasture lands now in the occupation of Mr. John Greatrex, and known as the Malt House Lands.

The concert room was beautifully decorated, choice pictures being hung along the walls. Another similar concert will take place in a short time. SUPPOSED SUICIDE.—On Friday evening a body was found on the mud of the Ely River, Penarth, im- mediately opposite the Victoria Wharf. The body was immediately recovered and conveyed to the Police-station, Penarth. It was recognised as that of Robert Waddle,rigger, residing at Maughan-street, Penarth. The body had only been in the water a very short time. It is believed to have been a case of sui- cide. The man was dressed in heavy clothes, oilskins, and thick boots. A number of large stones were found on the body. One halfpenny and a small piece of tobacco were the only articles found on him.
WENVOE. ASSAULTING A GIRL.—At the Penarth Police- court on Monday, before Mr. James Ware (in the chair), and Colonel Guthrie, Wiirfred Moore, a servant girl at Shop Fa -m. Wenvoe, summoned Sarah Jane Thomas, daughter of Thomas Thomas, for an assault on the 10th ult. Mr. A. W. Moivis (instructed by Miss Gertrude Jenrer, Typica, Wenvoe) appeared for the prosecution, and Mr. W. L. Yorath, Cardiff, for the defendant. It appeared from the evidence on both sides that the prosecutrix had neglected her house- hold duties whilst the defendant was away, and on the day following her return home soi-.ie cross words endued between them, wirch res,"t" 1 ?" ""8,Jefenèant striking the complainant on the ride of the head and pushiug her against the wall. This the defendant denied, but the Bench imposed a fine of Is., including costs.

A verbatim report of the hon. member's speech will in the next issue of the South Wales Star. THE ANNUAL THANCSGIVING MEETING was held at Carmel on Monday, October 12th, at 2 and 7 p. 111, No preacher had been engaged. It was It service of prayer and praise. The tendency of the present age b to do away with prayer meetings, and to have preach- ing services insvead but we prefer the old wav. It was veey refreshing to hear those who har1 heen actually toiling on the harvest field, and whose faith and patience had been tried by the inclemency of the weather, so sincere and fervent in their thanks to God for His great goodness and mercy, and emphatically declaring that, notwithstanding the many mysteries of Providence, their faith was so strong as ever in God as the Great Ruler of the world. Collections were made for the lIissionary Society.
A LARGE PASSENGER STEAMER AT PENARTH. There is at Penarth Dock at the present time one of the finest passenger steamers which has ever entered a Bristol Channel port—viz.. the Norham Castle, belonging to Messrs. Donald Currie and Ca. She is 380ft. 6in. long by 48ffc. 2in. in breadth. Her gross tonnage is 4,392, and she has accommodation for 120 passengers. The Norham Castle was launched eight years ago, but has recently been fitted with triple engines of 5,000-horse power. The deck arrangements have been improved, and the saloons, &c., have been re-furnished and deco- rated, the whole of the work costing £60,000. She now presents the appearance of a perfectly new boat, and the accommodation which is provided for passengers is of the most modern and approved kind. The Norham Castle came round from Glas- gow to Penarth in 60 hours, an average of seventeen knots per hour, and is now taking in 1,200 tons cf bunker c)al preparatory to her voyage from London to the Cape, but Captain Winchester, of the Norham Castle, is going to make a good bid for the position when he sails from London on the 1st of next month. The Cardiff agents are Messrs William Collings, jun., and Co., who are also agents of the Red Cross Line from Liverpool to Brazil, and of the Booth Steamship Company.
ATTEMPTED SUICIDE AT BARRY. On Friday morning, at the Penarth Magistrates' Clerk's Office, Cardiff, Thomas Hopkins (19), a fine, strapping young fellow, said to belong to Swansea, was charged—before Mr. J. S. Corbett—with attempting to commit suicide on Thursday night by taking laudanum.—David Watts, 6, Holton- road, Barry Dock, said that he was a labourer and kept a cook-shop. The prisoner had lodged with him since Monday, the 5th inst. On Thursday night after tea prisoner asked to come and have a drink with him. They both went to the Victoria Hotel. Witness had a pint of beer, the prisoner taking some whisky. Prisoner then went out and returned in a few minutes with a bottle which witness saw, by the label, contained laudanum. They then went back to the house, where the prisoner asked for a glass of water, which was given him. After getting th? water the prisoner palled the bottle out of his pocket and commenced to pour the contents into the glass. Witness at once went towards him. and, after a struggle, succeeded in obtaining the bottle from him. He then went out of the house and ran in the direc- tion of Cadoxton. Witness having put on his shoes (he was in his slippers) followed him. He found that he had gone to a druggist's shop, and had bought a second bottle. Witness found him sitting on a doorstep in a comatose condition. Witness attempted to rouse him, and, with assist- ance, carried him back to the druggist's shop, where he was attended to.—John Powell. surgeon, practising at Barry, said that he was called on the previous evening to Mr. Hopkins', the druggist's shop in High-street, where he found the prisoner in a semi-comatose condition. He immediately administered an emetic, and. seeing that it did not have the desired effect, he applied the stomach pump. His pulse was very slow and feeble, and his pupils began to contract, a symptom of opium poisoning. He could find no traces of poison in the contents of the stomach, but there was a strong smell of spirits. After injecting ether, and apply- ing ammonia to the nostrils, he gradually got better. He was of opinion that had not medical assistance been procured the man would have died. —Evan T. Owen said he was a chemist's assistant. He remembered prisoner coming into the shop (Mr. Hopkins', High-street), and asking for three- pennyworth of laudanum. He said he wanted it for the toothache, and it was supplied. Ten minutes afterwards he was brought back to the shop by two men in an unconscious condition. He had never seen him before.—This was all the evi dence taken, and the prisoner was remanded until Monday at Penarth.
A NOVEL LANDLORD, Under the above heading Cosmcs" writes :— Mr. Blandy Jenkins, the chairman of the Garw and Ogmore Local Board, is a landlord whose ex- ample could he followed by other landlords with advantage. A short time ago he handed the Board of which he is chairman £ 400 towards widening the roads in the district, besides giving the land necessary for the widening free. He has also laid out the whole of the sewerage on his estate at the Garw Valley at his own expense, and last Saturday he made the Bor-rd a gift of two plots of ground, one at Tynewydd and the other at Nantymoel, measuring three acres each, for re- creation purposes, free. If other landlords fol- lowed the example of Mr. Jenkins. there would be less heard of the tyranny of landlords."—This is not the first, by a long series, of the kindness that the Squire of Llanharran has shown to the in- habitants of the valleys." His generosity to the English Baptists of Pontycymmer has been beyond all praise.
OBITUARY.—We regret this week having te record the death of Mr. Charles Matthews, brother to ex- Superintendent Jabez Matthews, which took place at Pontypridd on Wednesday last. The deceased was employed under the Great Western Railway Com- pany for forty years, and was an earnest temperance advocate. Mr. Matthews had been ailing for the last two yoa*s, and for six months had been unable to leave his room. He leaves a widow and daughter, for whom much sympathy is ^pressed.
MR. A. J. WILLIAMS, M.P., AT LLANCARFAN. The largest political meeting ever held at IJan- carfan was the one which took place on Wednesday evening at the Llancarfan Board Schools, when Mr. A. J. Williams, M.P., the popular member for the division, attended to deliver an address to his constituents. Mr. W. Price p-esided, and the schoolroom was crowded in every part. —Mr. Williams, M.P., who was accorded a very enthusiastic reception, proceeded to refer to current political topics,.all of which he ably dealt with. Referring to the recent visit of Sir Edward Clarke and Mr. Chamberlain to Wales, the hon. member said that these two statesmen had claimed credit for the Government for having given local govern- ment and free education to Wales. But these measures had been refused time after time by the Conservatives, and it wis only by great pressure from the Liberals that the Government were in- duced to pass them. and then they only did so in a mangled form. Sir Edward Clarke had also claimed credit for the Tories for having passed the Mines' Act and the Emplojers' Liability Act. Tru?, they had been passed bp them, but it was only after fifteen vea"s' persistent effort on the part of Mr. B-irt and others in the teetrh of the most strenuous opposition by the Tory party that half-heartred imitations of them were made law. (Hear, hear.) The hon. member then proceeded to deal with Mr. Chamberlain's speech and other topics. At the conclusion of his speech, Mr. William Jenkins (Rhoose) moved a vote of confidence in the hon. member, which was supported by Mr. W. Griffiths and the Rev. — Lewis (Baptist Minister). The resolution was enthusiastically carried, and after a similar compli- ment had been given the chairman, on the motion of Mr. Williams, M.P., seconded by Mr. Jenkins. the proceedings, which had been most successful throughout, concluded.
BOILERMAKERS", IRON, AN D STEEL SHIP-PLATERS SOCIETY. ANNIVERSARY DINNER AT BARRY. On Tuesday night the Barry branch of the Boilermakers' Society held a most successful first anniversary dinner at the Barry Hotel. Barry. Mr. J. Williams (Graving Dock) presided, and among those present we noticed besides — Drs. Neale and Gore. Messrs. Fox (district delegate), J.

When the company re- assembled, Mr.McCallum was unanimously voted to the chair, and the proceedings took a convivial turn. After the usual loyal toast, Mr. F. W. Chad lock, in proposing" The Trade and Commerce of Barry," said that in barely two and a half years Barry had become one of the leading docks in South Wales, if not in the world. While Cardiff was talking, Barry was doing. (Laughter and cheers.) It was rumoured that the construction of a new dock was in contemplation, and he wished it every success. (Applause.)—Mr J. Williams, in responding, said that they at the dock did as much work as they could' do. After giving a very successful account of the difficulties they hid had to overcome at first-want of men. want of tools, want of machin- ery, and the taunts that used to be levelled against them as being unable to compete with Cardiff, he wer, t on to say that now they could hold their own with all-comers, and in several jobs lately they had beaten Cardiff. (Loud applause.) What was still wanted were more houses where merchants could live at, or at all events they wanted their offices at the dock, and then they would beat Cardiff hollow. (Loud ap- plause.) I Mr. W. Fowler proposed the Boilermakers' Society," and in doing so sa'd that the society was second to none in the benefits it conferred on its members, and had long stood the test of the battle and the breeze. (Loud cheers.)—Mr. Fox (D.D.). in responding-, said that at no time in the history of the society could they drink that toast with greater satisfaction than now. They had every reason to be pleased, and thankful for the increas- ing influence and importance of the society. (Cheers.) Other societies made more show, and a greater flourish, but he questioned if there were a Trades' Union in +'- country which had done more practical good for its members. (Loud applause.) Some Unions made the platform their ground of operation public display was almost their sole wish and desire but the officers of the Boilermakers' Society workel in a quiet and unostentatious manner. The ultimate aim and object of Trades' Unionism was the promotion of tha welfare of its members and in order to attain thv n pcr'oet organisation was needed. If they ec'i^ide-. d the sad labour disputes of the last tv. 1 :-j months, and how the workmen had in many of them been badly beaten, they would see that the cause of the defeat was not the power of wealth and capital or even the combination of capitalists, but the treacherous and traitorous con- duct of workingmen, who had become so untrue to themselves and their cause, as to become "blacklegs." (Applause.) If labour organisation was thorough, there would no longer be any "blackleg-s." What was wanted was a solid organisation of labour, which could explain to the employers the wishes and wants of the employed. (Cheers.) The employers them- selves would respect such a powerful organisation. In this matter of organisation, the Boilmakers' Society would compare very favourably with any other Trades'Union in Great Britain, even if it was not the first in that respect. It controlled 90 per cent. of the men who were engaged in boiler- making, bridge-building, and all constructory iron work. (Loud applause.) What other Union could say that it comprised 90 per cent. of its possible members ? They had srill much work before them, and he would impress on all present that if work- ing men wished to rise in the social scale, they must contribute to their Unions. (Hear, hear.) There was still much to do in the Midlands. They aimed at perfection, though as yet they did not claim it. They not only protected their trade and secured a fair remuneration for their members. but they dispensed a very creditable amount among their out-of-o' k members. (Hear, hear.) Last year the principal items only of their expen- ditu :e amounted to nearly :C,)O,OùO, and for the past seven years their average weekly payments were £ 1.100. Who could tell how much good that money had done, how much penury it had re- moved, how much destitution it had alleviated ? (Loud cheers.) If they examined the society's savings, the result was eqrally encouraging. In 1887 the amount of money in their exchequer was £ 21,000. In that year their members, smarting under the reaction that took place after the bad times between 1879 and 1882. and between 1884 and 1887. resolved that they would provide for the time when adversity set in. In 1891 the amount of money in the society's exchequer was £ 1-" 8.000. (Loud cheers and applause.) This only showed the marvellous recuperative power of Trades Unions. (Hear, hear.) During the first four months of the current year a sum of £ 25,000 had been saved, and if the rest of the year showed up well, at the end of the year the amount in the bank would reach £ 200,000. (Loud cheers.) It was beginning to be seen that Unionism did not deserve the censure of the mighty and the great, but rather their encouragement and patronage. Employ- ers now admitted their ability and their moderation in trades disputes. Strikes were be- coming unusual in their trades, and were looked upon with suspicion and distrust. Employers now sent for the men's representative, for it was begin- ning to be understood that the interests of labour and capital were identical. (Hear, hear.) He (the speaker) was willing to accept gratefully the aid and assistance of the political economists, church dignitaries, and statesmen, who figured now so prominently on labour platforms, be their motive sinister or genuine. But he would like to impress on those present that the working men themselves could do more than all to better them- selves. (Cheers.) Their members were second to none in mental capacity and in the amount of their earnings, but they had their failings as well. He would like to see more salt-help and thrift exercised among them. (Hear, hear.) They should be provident and think of the future, for the fine words of these great men who spoke on their hustings would be of little avail in the day of adversity. (Cheers.) He was glad to see so many lemonade-bottles on the table—(laughter)— he did not wish tht-n to preach temperance, but he must say that if more gingerbeer and less beer were drunk, the condition of the workmen would be temperate, sober, and provident. (Loud and continued cheering.) Mr. J. Cann. who also responded, said that in 1885 when the district was formed there were only 800 members, now there were 1.500. (Applause.) Mr. Cann next proposed "The Barry Branch," to which Mr. Morris Jones Che president of the Barry Branch since its formation) and Mr. Howell (secretray) responded.—The Secretary read out the year's accounts, which showed that the balance at the end of the first quartey was E16 10s, 4d.: second quarter, 431 12s. 2d.; third quarter, £ 28 4s. 7s. fourth quarter, £ 39 18s. lOd. The total sick fund payments during the year had been £ 15. travelling expenses Y.1 2s. The total income was £ 18119s. 7d.: the total expenditure zC65 3s. 8d.. leaving a grand total balauce of £116 15s. lid. (Loud applause.) It was significant that no home (or out-of-work) donation had been paid during the year. (Cheers.) Mr. Mclvor proposed ''The Visitors," and Dr. Neale and Mr. Handcock responded.—Mr. Jones proposed The Press," to which Mr. W. Llewellyn Williams (editor South 1J rrle* Star) responded."— Mr. J. Hewitt proposed "The Management-Com- mittee." and Mr. J. H. Jose acknowleged.—Mr. Jose proposed The Chairman in felicitous terms, and the toast was drunk most enthusiastically.— Mr. McCallun briefly responded.—The health of the Host and hostess having been drunk with murical honours, a most enjoyable and pleasant reunion was brought to a finish. Between the toats the folowing musical pro- gramme was srone through Mr. McDonald, overture; Mr. R. Griffiths sang "The noble boy of truth:" Mr. E. Crawley. "I can't make 'em out"; violin solo.

BARRY AND CADOXTON LOCAL BOARD. .MEETING OF THE PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE. The above committee of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board held a meetincr at the" Board Offices, Vere-street. Cadoxton, on Tuesday night-, at seven o clock. There were present — Messrs. J. C. Meggitt (chairman). P. J. O'Donnell. J. Robinson. J. Barstow. W. Thomas (auctioneer). J. A. Hughes (clerk). J. C. Pardoe (surveyor), and C. Wa' er (drainage engineer). JIP.. WALKER'S DRAINAGE KEPOTLT.—IMPORTANT XEW EXTENSION. Mr. C. R. W alker (drainage engineer) repo::ed that he had had information from the Barry Com- pany's engineer that the pipe across Barry Harbour in connection with the proposed new outfall should be arranged so as to avoid a bank. He had seen Mr. Robinson, and it appeared that it would necessitate some additional surveys, as he (Mr. Walker) had his lines practically n11 jhed. The company, it seemed, were likelv to make a bank in the direction of the dock; he (Mr. Walker) could meet their requirements, but of course it would alter the line he had adopted. The extra cost necessitated would be 2C 250. He recommended that an additional sewer should ba placed near the Ship Hotel, to meet the growing lequire- ments of that end of the district. He advised the carrying out of the work at once, and also that the sewer should be extended up to Mr. David Morgan's house. The sewage would be taken from the top of the hill in a more direct line to the sea. The extra cost would be £ 440. Still further to keep up with the re- quirements of the district, he suggested that an additional one should be made near Cjidknap, which would provide for the Cwm lying below Castle Farm. The drainage area would be about 140 acres. He proposed that there should be a 21-inch storm overflow on the fore shore, and a 21-inch sewer on the flat land. It was very shallow at ihat point, and it would have to be protected with concrete. The cost would bex945. but he thought the landowners should be asked to pay a portion of the cost, and to give a free wavleave for the sewer. The growth of the district had been so enormous that he thought it wonld be well to enlarge the pipe in Barry Harbour f-om the Ship Hotel to the proposed outfall by Coldknap from 24 to 27 inches, and from there to the Coldknap outfall to 30 inches. The co.*t would be £ 525, and he thought there would be no difficulty in getting the consent of the Barry Company to that. In reference to the money to be bom.wed, the follow- ing amount he proposed should be expended —Original cost of the Barry Harbour scheme. £ 7,250 extra cost in crder to meet the require- ments of the Barry Company. £ 250 proposed extension by the Ship Hotel, £ 440 proposed ex- tension by Coldknap. £ 8 !5 proposed enlargement, £ 525 total, £ 9.390.—The Chairman said the works proposed by Mr. Walker would have to be done sooner or IaLcr, and, in his opinion, the sooner the better.—Mr. Robinson moved that the whole of Mr. Walker's recommendations shoull be adopted.-This was unanimously agreed to.- Mr. Walker. reporting on Mi. Parker's contract at Cadoxton, kc.. said he thought the cost would be a little over £ 17.800 (the amount of the contract). Altogether it would be about £ 17,900. After care- fully going through the amounts for engineering, damage claims, the purchase of Wenvoe, Barry Island, and Barry sewe"s, lie thought the Beard should ask for an additional £ 3 00 on the lean, unless they had some other surplus loan from which it could be paid. MISCET.LAXEOUS. Plans were submitted for a sewer from Rarry- road to Cou-t-road. on the land where it was pro- posed to erect public slaughter-house, kc., and on the motion of Mr. Thomas, seconded by Dr. O'DmneIj, the work was ordered to be done. The Surveyor drew attention to the fact that several panes of glass in the street lamps had been broken, and that the same offenders were in the habit of extinguishing the lamps. The press were asked to draw attention to the matter, and the surveyor was deputed to inform the police. A letter was read from Mr. J. Montgomery asking the Board to remedy a sewer nuisance at 49, Main-street, which he alleged had been caused by his having carried out. at the instruction of the Board some months back, an alteration to the drain which bad now caused the nuisance com- plained of.—The matter was referred to the sur- veyor. A letter was read from Mr. J. Morris, solicitor, in reference to Mr. Bamett's licence of the Cadox- ten Theatre. He stated that Mr. Barnett had not transferred the licence, and was still responsible to the Board.—The Clerk remarked that the law said that the licence must be in the hands of the responsible and actual manager. If that was not so at Cadoxton. of course it was the duty of the police to take proceedings. It was decided to pay the Barry Estate Co. (when the money for the private improvements had been borrowed) for the improvements which the estate company had carried out outside two places of worship in Porthkerry-road, Barry. A ROADWAY XEAR C4.DOXTON CHURCH. On the motion of Mr. W. Thomas, seconded by Dr. O'Donnell. the surveyor wrs instructed to ad- vertise for tenders for the construction of a small portion of roadway near Cadoxton Church, and the filling up of the existing portion, the tenders to be opened at the next Local Board meeting.—Mr. Barstow gave notice to move thtt the sum stated by the surveyor at the previous meeting—which he alleged to be £ 70—be given to the syndicate to carry out the work. ROLTOX AND COURT ROADS. The next business beingto consider the question of the maintenance of the Court and Holton reads, the Surveyor said the traffic over the Court-road was commenced on the 19th of May last, so that the six months would elapse by the 19th of this month. With regard to the Holton and Weston road. traffic had been going over it pract ically the whole time. He suggested that Mr. Love should put the road in proper repair, and that the board then take it over. -Dr. O'Donnell drew attention to the bad con- dition portions of the road were in, through the laying down of the Barry and Cadoxton Water Com- pany's mains along the road.—The Surveyor agreed, but it was mentioned that in future the Surveyor would repair the defects, the Gas and Water Co. paying the Local Board for doing so.—Mr. J. Bar- stow moved that the maintenance of the roads by the contractor should cease at o.ice, and that the Surveyor should take charge cf ,the roads.—It was, however, decided, on the motion of Dr. O'Donnell. seconded by Mr. W. Thomas, to carry out the Sur- veyor's recoin III end ,-it ioji-viz.. that the contractor put the roads in a proper state of repair, and that the Board then take them over. This was all the business.
ALLEGED UNLAWFUL WOUNDING AT JIAESTEG. Edwin Stone, labourer, of 80, Bethania-street, •Maesteg. was brought up before Cel. Warlow. on Wednesday, on a charge of unlawfully wounding Gomer Griffiths, of the same place, by deliberately thrusting an umbrella into his eye. Sufficient evidence having been given defendant was re- manded in custody till to-morrow (Saturday).
BAnDIT COI'IJSINC.—It has been pointed out to us by Councillor James Roberts that on Mabon's Day and other Kcnern.1 holidays a large number of rabbits are brought to Pontypridd and various railway stations in the immediate vicinity for the purpose of rabbit coursing. The poor animals arc packed no closed in boxes, and when taken out are scarcely able to move. Ttis suggested that the attention of the police and the- Royal Society for the Prevention otf Cruelty to Animals should be called to the fact, with a view to prevent this wanton cruelty, and, if possible, to, put a stop to this inhuman sport,"

Mr. Williams ex- pressed his regret at being unable to a.tend the annual dinner in the evening, a previous engage- ment to address his constituents at Llancarfan preventing him. The annual dinner at the Wenvoe Arms in the evening "was a huge success, over a hundred persons sitting down to Mr. and Mrs. Jenkins's sumptions spread. The mottoes, God Lpeed the Plough" and "Success to Agri- culture." occupied conspicuous positions on the walls, and were as handsome as ihey were appropriate.
