BARRY A X I) C'ADOXTOX LOCAL BOARD. MEETING OF THE HEALTH COMMITTEE. A meeting1 of the Health Committee of the above Board was held at Cadoxton on Friday night last. Dr. O'Donnell in the chair. There were present besides, Dr. Treharne, Messrs. W. Thomas (Vere- screet), J. Barstow. Dr. Neale (medical officer), J. A. Hughes (clerk), J. C. Pardoe (surveyor), and W. Lsyshon (inspector of nuisances). After the minutes of the previous meeting had been discussed and confirmed, Dr. Neale read the inspector of nuisances' report. This showed that after a house-to-house visitation four nuisances had been found to exist in Richards-street, three Newland-street, five in Evans-street, four in Regent-street, seven in Lombard-street, eight in Brook-terrace, <Scc. The number had greatly diminished since last year. when nuisances existed in one out of every two houses visited. The number of nuisances inspected was 63 of these 57 had been complained about, and in 42 cases the inspector's orders had been complied with. It was mentioned that nuisances existed in Merthyr-street, Court-road, and Courtenay-road.— The Surveyor remarked that until the sewer was extended in Courtenay-road nothing could be done. —The Clerk said that in Thompson-street the syndicate refused to allow the Board to join the sewer, because the street isn't a public highway. The Barry Company were willing to proceed with the private improvements in Dock View-road if the syndicate would do their part of the work. The inspector's report went on to show that the scavenging of the district had been much im- proved. The sanitary condition of the two new cowsheds which he had inspected was satisfactory, and the utensils were clean. He had found the 12 bakehouses which he had seen satisfactory, and IS of them had been disinfected. Of the 28 ships lie had visited, he had to send notices of nuisances to five.—It was decided to extend the sewer along Court-road, to send out notices of nuisances to such owners as had not complied with the orders of the Board, and to call Mr. Forrest's attention to the serious nuisances that existed at the back of Main-street.—It was determined to place a gas lamp at the corner of Coign-terrace. —Dr. Treharne proposed, and Mr. W. Thomas seconded, and it was carried, that the Weston-road should be lighted as soon as practicable. A letter was read from Miss Leicester, complaining of the want of gaslamps and a footpath on the road leading to the Ship Hotel, Barry, which mode it dangerous for any of her staff to go out after flark,' It was decided to place lights there when lanterns were procured, and the question of the footpath was referred to the Public Works' Com- mittee.—Mr. Baratow's scheme that the Board should take all work into their own hands was also referred to the same committee.—The Clerk was requested, on the motion of Dr. O'Donnell, seconded by Mr. W. Thomas, to write to the engi- neer of the Gas Company to complain of the quality of the gas. and to prepare a report for the Board as to the manner in which the gas was tested in other towns. The following tenders for scavenging were read :—Cadoxton Thomas Paulett. £18 10s.; W. Osborne, £20: Rucklev. £ 22 Charles Eyles. JE29 10s.: F. Griffiths, 30 Ellis and Allen. £ 24. Barry Dock Charlea Eyles, £15; F. Griffiths. £15 10s: Ruckley. £16: Elli:andAllen,£18; Osborne. £20: Burton and Morgan. £ 30. Barry: Burton and Morgan, £ 12 F. Griffiths, £ 14 10s.; C. Eyles, £ 15. It was stated that the Board at present pay for scavenging Cadoxton, £ 24 10s.; Barry Dock, £ 24 and Barry £ 7.—Mr. Barstow. in proposing that Ruckley s tender for scavenging Cadoxton be accepted, said that Ruckley would take the manure out of the district.—Dr. Treharne seconded.—Mr. W. Thomas proposed that Paulet-t's tender be accepted, but this finding no seconder, the com- mittee accepted the former. For Barry Dock. Mr. Barstow proposed, Dr. Treharne seconded, and it was unanimously carried, that the tender of C. Eyles be accepted. For Barry. Dr. O'Donnell proposed, and Mr. Barstow seconded, that the tender of Mr. F. Griffiths be accepted.—Dr. Tre- harne proposed Burton and Morgan, but, as they had not furnished securities, the tender of the former was accepted. After a lengthened discussion it was decided to erect public urinals at the following places :—At the corner of the Common opposite the Royal Hotel, at the bottom of Yere-strbet, and near the Wenvoe Arms Hotel in Cadoxton one near the Police-station, and one near the Victoria Hotel in Holton and one at the junct;on of the Barry and Barry Dock roads in Barry. A letter was read from Mr. R. Evans, the general manager of the Barry Railway, asking for the Board's co-operation in clearing the refuse from the ships near the dock.—Mr. W. Thomas Will they allow our scavenging: cart to pass through the tollgate they are erecting- without paying —The Chairman The Board will, of course, charge the company for the work done.—The Clerk pointed out that in Cardiff the Corporation do not do the scavenging on the dock properly, though they can prosecute for nuisances.—It was erentualiy de- cided to write to the company pointing out that they were outside the Local Board scavenging dis- trict, and asking them to take steps themselves to clear the refuse. A bill had been received from the Gas and Water Company for street watering at the rate of Is. 6d. per 1,000 gallons.—TTie clerk was instructed to write to point out to the secretary that accord- ing to tha contract only 8d. per 1,000 gallons could be charged. On the motion of Mr. W. Thomas, a return of the amount spent by the Board on the scavenging of streets during the last month was ordered to be printed in the minutes of the committee. A long discussioh followed on the times of lighting the gas lamps.—It was eventually decided, on the motion of Dr. O'Donnell, seconded by Dr. Treharne. that the lamps be put out five nights a months—during full moon—after midnight.—The Surveyor having complained of the breaking and extinguishing of lamps in the district, Dr. O'Donnell proposed, and W. Thomas seconded, and it was carried that a reward of £ 1 be offere 3 to any who would give such information as would lead to the conviction of offenders.—This was the principal business.

H. Charteris, wages and petty cash, :£ 12 17s. 8d. — The collector's accounts were ex- amined. and it was found that over £1,500 was outstanding from the last rate. — The Chairman urged that steps should be taken to collect this amount at once —The Chair- man called attention to the fact that the collector had a large! amount in hand which he had not banked.—The collector said he had been collecting up to the very minute before the meeting, and had not had time to bank it.—The Chairman, looking baek through the collector's books, pointed out that large balances had been in hand for several past meetings, and he thouarht it would be well for the collector to make his books up to two o'clock before the Finance Committee meetings, and to bank everything up to that time.—The Collector promised to do so.—It was stated that the sum of £3.000 was now due for private im- provements. — The Clerk, in drawing the attention of the committee to this, said that besides the je3,000 for private improvements, and £ 1.500 the balance of the rate, the sum of £200 or £300 for drainage work carried out by the Board, and which would have to be paid for by the owners of the property affected, remained to be paid. It was a question fJt the committee to consider whether it would not be wise to appoint special assistants to collect these amounts.—After some discussion, during which the collector stated that he did not require any special assistance, it was determined to pro- ceed as at present.—This being the principal business the committee rose.
BARRY TRADES' COUNCIL AND THE LOCAL BOARD. At a meeting of the Barry and District Trades' Council held at the Victoria Hotel, Barry Dock. on Friday evening last, Mr. W. Copp presiding, a letter was read from Mr. J. A. Hughes, clerk to the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board, enclosing the resolutions come to by the Board with refer- ence to the letting of contracts, &c. On the motion of Mr. Harper (vice-president), seconded by Mr. Margerie, it was resolved, that the thanks of this Council be tended to the Local Board for the readiness with which they conceded to the wishes of the Trades' Council. The following are the resolutions arrived at by the Local Board— llesolved—That the recommendations of the Trades' Council be adopted, and that a form of contract be drawn up which would include the following recom- men (lations- 1. That all contractors shall be required to pay their workmen the recognised or Trade Union rate of wages, and the working hours to be in accordance with the rules and customs of trade. 2. That sub-contracts for labour only be not allowed, and that no sub-contracts for labour and materials be allowed except with the approval of the Board. 3. That as far as practicable, other things being equal, all work to be done in the town. 4. Local appointments to be filled by local men, other things being equal. Dr. O'Donnell proposed, and Mr. Meggitt seconded, that the following recommendation be also included- namely—That any of the contracts to be accepted in the town the contractor shall be required to conform to the recognised works, rules and customs of the various trades. — Mr. J. Barstow proposed as an amendment, and Mr. J. Robinson seconded, that this recommendation be not accepted,-The amendment was put to the meeting, ane1 the voting was as follows :-For amendment: J, Barstow. J. Robinson, H. H. Lee, E. Treharne, J. J. Wiliinms. W. Thomas (Hayes), W. Thomas (Vere- street), G. Thomas. Against amendment: J. C. Meggitt, P. J. O'Donnell.—The Chairman declared the amendment c3.rried,-Thc amendment was then put to the meeting as a substantive resolution and carried.
MR. ALFRED THOMAS AND HIS CONSTITUENTS. We understand that Mr. Alfred Thomas. M.P.. is now making arrangements with Mr. Charles Morgan, Pontypridd, the Liberal agent for the East Glamorganshire Division, to make a tour of his constituency, and address meetings at Ponty- pridd, Mountain Ash. Ynysybwl, Taffs Well, and other places. The hon. gentlermm also intends bringing to the district some of his colleagues at Westminster, and amongst others Mr. D. Lloyd George, M.P., who made such a favourable impres- sion at the Disestablishment meetings held re- cently at Pontypridd.
NEW THEATRE FOR BARRY. We understand that a well-attended and repre- sentative meeting of the leading inhabitants and tradesmen of Barry was held at the Barry Market on Monday night for the purpose of considering the advisability of forming a limited liability com- pany to erect a new theat~° for Barry. After some discussion the compary v, ;.s formed, Mr. G. F. Willett being appointed secretary. It was decided that the capital of the company should be £5,000, and that the sum of dE25 should be subscribed to qualify a director. The chief argument, we under- stand, in favour of erecting a theatre was that that there was no place of amusement at Barry, conse- quently the inhabitants went to Cardiff to spend their money, with the result that the Barry tradesmen suffered. We hope to be in a position to give further particulars of the proposed new theatre in our next issue.
PENCOED NOTES. [BY ROVER.] THE RESULT OF THE WEATHER. If proof were required of the recent heavy rain- falls which we have experienced in this district. it is to be had at Cribbwr Main Colliery, Coychurch Higher. There the water in the workings has in- creased to such an extent that it is with the greatest difficulty the pumps can keep it low enough to admit of the men carrying on their operations. The work is comparatively near the surface, and the rain water forces itself into it, a circumstance, it is said, which never occurred at the colliery before. On the side of the hill there is still much hay uncut, and it is more than pro- bable that much of it, if not all, will remain uncut. The out-look is by no means a pleasant one for the farmers. WATCHMAN, WHAT OF THE XIGHT ? In all conscience, we have been under a Tory regime long enough, and the voices that cry Watchman, what of the night," are by no means few and far between. The country blundered in 1883. and it has had to bear the consequence of its blundering and grin since. The night, however, is now of necessity nearly over, and the time must soon come when the electors of this division shall shall once more have the opportunity to trium- phantly return Mr. Arthur Williams, who has already served them so well. The recent meetings held in the southern end of the division demon- strate the ever-growing popularity of the honour- able member in that part of his constituency, and here, in the neighbourhood of his home, the elec- tors will poll for him almost to a man. Even if we had occasion to part with Mr. Williams, people justly feel that it is an insult to offer them the rejected of a Cardiff ward. If men possesses not the qualifications of a. town council, surely they would be out of the run entirely at St. Stephens. A LOCAL STRIKE. Though strikes are common in some parts, they rarely occur in the neighbourhood of Pencoed, and therefore when one occurs here it attracts con- siderable attention. We have a strike here just now true, it is not a big one, but it is very inter- esting nevertheless. Two small boys have for some time been engaged on Sunday nights to follow, at a respectable distance, a young man who courts at a farmhouse some distance outside the village. The young man is afraid of the night, and under the circumstances I don't think any one will blame him for empoying two small boys to follow him to the house of his adored, nd accompany him closely on the return journey. The employer, however, is accused of being a sweater"; that is, he does not pay his employees a just remuneration for their labours. The wage is one penny per boy on fine Sunday nights and three-halfpence on wet ones. The youngsters have given notice to terminate their contracts on next Sunday night week. That some means of mutual agreement between employer and em- ployees may be found, and thus avoid a catastrophe in the labour market, is a consummation devoutly wished by all in Pencoed. A SCOLD'S VOCABULARY. The following is the curtain lecture which a Pencoed wife delivered to her lord and master the other night:—You are an abhorred, barbarous, capricious, detestable, envious, festidious, hard- hearted, ill-liberal, ill-natured, jealous, keen, loath- some, malevolent, nauseous, obstinate, passionate, quarrelsome, raging, saucy, tantalising, uncom- fortable, vexatious, abominable, bitter, captious, disagreeable, execrable, fierce, grating, gross, hasty malicious, nefarious, obstreperous, peevish, rest-, less, savage, tart, unpleasant, violent, waspish, worrying, acrimonious, blustering, careless, dis- contented, fretful, growling, hateful, inattentive, malignant, noisy, odious, perverse, rigid, severe, teasing, unsuitable, angry, boisterous, choleric, disgusting, gruff, hectoring, incorrigible, mis- chievous, negligent, offensive, pettish, roar- ing, sharp, sluggish, snapping, snarling, sneaking, sour. testy, tiresome, tormenting, touchy, arrogant, austere, awkward, boorish, brawling, brutal, bullying, churlish, clamorous, crabbed, cross, currish, dismal, dull, dry, drowsy, grumbling, horrid, huffish, injurious, insolent, in- tractable, irrascible, ireful, morose, murmuring, opinionated, oppressive, outrageous, overbearing, petulant, plaguy, rough, rude, rugged, spiteful, splenetic, stern, stubborn, stupid, sulky, sullen, surly, suspicious, treacherous, troublesome, turbu- lent, tyrannical, virulent, wrangling, yelping dog in a manger!

A Coychurch gentleman, who is well known and much respected at Pencoed, and who is afflicted with the aristocratic but painful gout, was asked the other day what difference there was between that and rheumatism. A considerable difference, indeed," replied the gentleman. Suppose you take a vice, you put your finger in, you turn the tcrew till you can bear it no tighter—that is rheumatism. Then suppose you give the screw one turn more—that is the gout!"

ALLEGED BURGLARY AT PENARTH. PRISONER COMMITTED FOR TRIAL. At Penarth Police-court on Monday (before Mr. J. Ware, in the chair, and Mr. J. Duncan), Alfred Thomas, a sailor, of Penarth, was brought up in custody charged with burglariously enter- ing the house of Thomas Goodman, a pilot, living at 7. Albert-road, Penarth, on the night of the 22nd inst.—Mr. A. W. Morris appeared on behalf of the police, and Mr. T. H. Belcher defended.— Elizabeth Goodman said she retired to bed on the night named about 10.30. her husband being away from home that night. She locked both the doors and windows securely before retiring. On the following morning she got up at 7.30, and found the back door and window wide open. The first thing she noticed missing was her purse, which she had left on the kitchen table, containing money, but she did not know the amount. She also lost a gold brooch, an overcoat from the pas- sage, and other wearing apparel, which she valued at aJ out £ 5.-Police-sergeant John Samson de- posed to being in the Penarth Hotel grounds on the followfng morning about 12.30. and saw the prisoner go to a hedge where the clothes were hid. He approached him, and, in reply to a question, prisoner stated that he knew nothing at all about the burglary. He detained him until Inspector King came up, and on the way to the police-station prisoner asked permission to sit down, as he (witness) thought he was in a fainting condition. However, the prisoner admitt-ui having stolen the whole of the articles produced, and said he had been out of work for some time, and had lost clothes of his own to the value of £16.-Inspector King said he found the purse, which contained 7s. 11d. in money and some cheques. He exam- ined the prosecutrix's house, and found footmarks inside and outside of the window.—Prisoner was committed to the assizes.

The prosecutor said he missed the collar on the 14th inst., but thinking a neighbour had bor- rowed it, he did not give information to the police for two or three days. However, on the day following that he gave information, he saw the collar in the posses- sion of Police-constable Herbert Evans. Defen- dant had been in his employ at the time, and wonld have to go to the stable. When the constable charged him with stealing the collar, he admitted having borrowed it. It appears that he told one of wit- ness's men that he was going to borrow it as the collar for his horse was being mended at Cadoxton, but did not tell him until after the prosecution was commenced.—This was corroborated by other wit- nesses, and the Bench dismissed the case. USING THREATS.—A summons was granted against Mrs. Maria Mooney, boarding-house keeper. Holme-street, Cadoxton, for threatening Mrs. Anne Webber, grocer, on the previous Satur- day.

H. Stockwood appeared for the prosecu- tion as clerk to the Board, and Mr. T. J. Hughes defended.—Mr. Hughes, while admitting the of- fence. urged in mitigation that it was not fla- grantly done, owing to the scarcity of the houses in the district.—H. Dawkin Williams (surveyor to the Local Board) and Christopher John (inspector of nuisances) gave evidence.—Mr. Hughes called Elizabeth Jane Tong, who stated that she, being obliged to leave the International Company's houses at Blaengarw, applied to defendant for the house two months before its completion. He re- fused to grant it to her, but allowed her to remove there a week previous to its completion, she meanwhile living at Blaengarw with the people who moved into her former abode.—Cross-ex- amined. she did not remember any of the officers of the Board coming to the house before the pre- vious week.—Fined £2, including costs.

Hurford also assisted complainant to put defendant out.—For the wilful damage defendant had to pay e 1, and for the assault ordered to go tc gaol for ten days with hard labour.

CHARGE AGAINST A BARRY BOARDING-MASTER. At Cardiff Police-court (Dr. Paine and Alder- man Jacobs being the presiding magistrates) on Friday, Andrew Donovan, a boarding house keeper of Barry, was brought under a warrant charged with obtaining £ 5 15s. 6d. from Hiram Weeks on the 20th inst. by false pretences.—Mr. Morgan Rees prosecuted, and Mr. J. H. Jones defended.-The case for the prosecutor was that the accused had presented two sailors' advance notes. These notes, it was alleged, he knew were bad. Accused had had two men lodging with him, named William Jenkins and Henry Smith, both of whom had shipped on the Java. Both drew advance notes, and handed them to Donovan, he well knowing they were of no value unless the men shipped. The ship sailed, and the Board of Trade officials informed Donovan that the two men had not sailed, and that substitutes had been put on the Java. The accused, however, came to Car diff, and it war, alleged went straight to the shop of Mr.Weeks in James-street, and changed the notes.— Miss Davies stated that she cashed the notes for the accused. He told her the ship had gone out. She never cashed notes until the vessel had gone out. -CrOiis-examined by Mr. Jones She had cashed many notes for the accused. She could not say it was as many as 150 a year. It was the custom when sailors did not go to sea to get the money refunded. Mr. Weeks said three days after re- ceiving the notes he had taken them to Mr. Col- lings, jun., the broker, who refused to pay, as the men had not gone in the ship.—Cross-examined, prosecutor said he was chairman and treasurer of the Boarding Masters' Association. Accused was a member. It was no part of the business of the association to cash notes for members. Prosecutor had received back part of the money in a note previous to the two in question. Re-examined Had failed to learn in that instance that accused had known the men had not sailed when the note was cashed. Herinan Wagner, another Barry boarding-house master, said he had seen Donovan take his two substitutes on board at Java.—Cross- examined He had known the first two men agreed upon. Board of Trade Officer Thomas said he had boarded the Java. Donovan said two of his men were missing, and he had brought two others. Substitutes were then signed on.—Evi- dence was called to show that Donovan had re- ceived advance notes on behalf of the substitutes and had given them in part payment of a horse.- Detective Roddy having given evidence. Mr. Jones contended that there was no case, there being no evidence that the men had not sailed in the ship. —Accused was committed for trial at the quarter sessions, bail being allowed, himself in 450 and two sureties of A 25 each.
