NANTYMOEL. MEETING OF THE OCEAN AND WYNDHAM WORKMEN.—On Monday a mass meeting of the workmen of the above collieries was held. Mr. Wm. Jones was in the chair, Mr. Arthur Whiting in the vice-chair. There were also present Mr. W. Thomas, secretary of the Federation, who went into the finan- cial condition of this district, and Mr. George Howells, check-weigher of the Ocean, treasurer of the federation. It was passed that two lodges be formed — one in Tynewydd, the other in Nantymoel. It was also proposed that the Ogmore district join with the Garw dsstrict At this point in the proceedings, Mr. John Thomas, of the Garw, who represented the Federation, addressed the meeting on the objects of the Federation. He pointed out that organisdotion was most essential to maintain their rights against the tyranny of colliery officials. It helped them to send representatives to watch over proceedings at inquests after explosions of gas. The Federation were now agitating for reform in the system of selecting jurymen for coroners' inquests on accidents in mines. None but practical colliers should act in this capacity. They wanted to reform the clauses of the Coal Mines Act re monthly examinations of mines. In the Em- ployers' Liability Act the limit of time for bringing the action should be done away with, and there should be no restriction in the amount of damage claimed. Mr Thomas complained that employers could now escape their liability with the greasest ease. The Federation had for one of its objects the representation on public boards of the working class by workmen themselves. Reform was required in the non-experienced labour clause. Employers now took advantage of the word- ing of Rule 39 in the Mines Act, which frustrated the spirit of the Act. The words No person should be made to read "No persons." The efforts of the Federation were exerted in restricting the amount of labour in face of the glutted market.
CLYDACH VALE. FATAL ACCIDENT.—On Sunday morning, about 5 o'clock, a young man named Lewis Roberts, living at 53, Morton-terrace, met with a fatal accident at the Clydach Vale Colliery. He was engaged clearing the bottom of the shaft, when the carriage descended and crushed him. Although severely injured, several ribs smashed, and a fearful gash of 10 inches on his head, he was brought out alive, but died about 6.30 on Sun- day evening. He leaves a widowed mother, three brothers, and a sister. He was the main support oe the family. PASSENGER TRAINS.—It is rumoured that the Taff Vale Company are making arrangements for the and running of passenger trains between Clydach Vale theRhondda, and it is to be hoped that this step will be taken at once in order to do away with the great in- convenience to which the inhabitants ara at present subjected in being obliged to walk or drive to Llwynypia or Dinas as the case may b2. It has been felt that a station at Trealaw would meet the require- ments of the public much better than the stations at present situated at Dinas and Llwynypia, and as pro- bably the junction of the Clydach Vale branch will be at Trealaw, the people of Tonypaady and Penygraig hope that the management wiil see the advisability of erecting a new station thereat.
YSTRAD. THE CYMMRODORION.—The monthly meeting of the Rhondda Valley Cymrodorion Society was held on Tuesday evening list, when the members were ad- dressed by Mr. R. Iwan Jenkyn on Language." It is; a pleasant duty to be able to chronicle the fact that this society is in a most flourishing condition, and has rendered great help to the Welsh cause in this part of the principality.

PROPERTY SALE.—An important sale of valuable public houses, viz.—the Castell Coch Inn, Tongwyn- lais, and the New Inn, Llantwit, was held by Mr. Morgan Morgan (Morgan, Bustcn, and Matthews) at the New Inn, Pontypridd, on Wednesday afternoon last. N# offer was forthcoming for the first house. The New Inn, Llantwit, however, was knocked down to Mr. W. Jenkins, of the Cilfynydd Inn. Pontypridd, for £500. The shop and premises adjoining the amblie-honae were also sold to the aama gentleman for £ 180.
BRIDGEND. BI-MONTKLY MARKET.—This market was well attended on Monday. There was an abundant supply of milch cows of the Irish breed, and a fairly large number of fat cattle on sale. A large number of sheep were also sent, and found much attention by buyers generally. Pigs were not in such demand. TABERNACLE MUTUAL IMPROVEMENT CLASS. —This class was opened under favourable auspices last Monday evening at the schoolroom. There was a good attendance. Mr. W. Francis (Fair Lawn Villa) was voted to the chair. Mr. W. Jenkins (Coedwigfab), Coity, read an excellent and appropriate paper on the subject, Y mae yn myn'd," delineating the evolutions around us. An edifying discussion ensued, and the usual votes of thanks closed the proceedings. All young men who feel an interest in their nationality are desired to attend. Next week Eryr Morganwg will read a paper. SCHOOL BOARD.—The moathly meeting of this Board was held on Tuesday last, when there were pre- sent, Mr. T. Stockwood (chairman), Revs. F. W. Edmonds and W. John, Messrs. T. T. Lewis, W. Buckley, John Evans.and W. Cooke (clerk).—The fine imposed in the case of Mr. William Thomas, Nolton- street. Bridgend, was ordered not to be enforced, the man attending the Board.—The Attendance Officer (Mr. G. W. Richards) reported the attendance as being very low, some families being down with colds. —The overseers of the parish of Coity Lower had paid £151 17s. 3d. to the treasurer, and the balance reported at the bank was £230 —There were no applications for the post of assistant master in the place of Mr. John George, who had entered college, and it was decided to advertise in the Schoolmaster, the applications to be considered at a special meeting.—The following tenders were read for the supply of coal:—Thomas Rowe, large, 2ft. 9in. or 4ft. vein, 16s. 8d. per ton; Jonah Chappell, best No. 3 large, 16s. James Humphreys, Garth, Merthyr, 4ft. large, or Ffaldau large, 18s."per ton.—Rev.F. W. Edmondes moved that Mr. Rowe's tender be accepted for the next three months.—This was seconded and carried.—This con- cluded the business of importance. PROPOSED UNITED CHOIR.—On Tuesday evening last, several gentlemen, musically disposed, held a meeting at Hermon (C.M.) Vestry for the purpose of taking steps to form an united choir for the town. It was decided that the choir be formed, and the names of three persons in the town were submitted as a com- mittee, and we understand that most of those named have consented to act. A further meeting will be held to-night (Friday). Mr. Samuel, who has had ex- perience in similar oaganizations in Llanelly and Dowlais, is one of the most enthusiastic of the pro- moter8.

COITY. HARVEST THANKSGIVING SERVICES.—Gilead Independent Church at this place held their usual ser- vices of thanksgiving for the recent harvest on Monday last. A prayer meeting was held in the morning, and I the Rev. E. Davies, Aberkeniig preached an appro- priate sermon in the afternoon. In the evening both this latter rev. gentleman and the Rev. W. Morris, Llangynwyd, preached. All the services were well attended, and were characterised as being of a highly successful char ad er.
ST. BRIDE'S-SUPER-ELY. HARVEST THANKSGIVING SERVICES.—The Con- gregational Church worshipping at Ebenezer in this place, held its thanksgiving services on Monday, the 2nd inst., at half-past ten, half-past two, and half-past six o'clock. A number of brethren led in prayer, and the Rev. J. R. Davies (Cardiff) preached two eloquent sermons. The attendance at each service was very good, and the offerings liberal, and as usual will be divided between over colleges.
OGMORE VALLEY. ACCIDENT.—On Thurv/uv, October 29th, whilst two colliers, named Davii J or.kins and Lot. Ham, were at work at the Wyndham Pit, a large portion of the roof gave way in their working piace. It occurred so sud- denly that they had no time to retreat before it came down, nearly burying them out of sight, and it was feared that they had lost their lives. It took a long time to extricate them from under the debris. For- tunately their injuries proved to be not so serious as anticipated. We are glad to state that they are pro- gressing favourably under the able treatment of Dr. Williams. An incident connected with this accident gives another proof of the risks and dangers a collier will undergo to render aid to a felloe-workman. Whilst the poor fellows named above were held fast by the fall, a large stone could be seen hanging right overhead Ham, and, by all appearance, would in a few seconds fall right on him and crush him to death. Mr. Frederick Smith, without a moment's hesitation, in a most heroic manner, jumped in under the stone, put his back to it, and diverted the direction of its fall, thus saving Ham's life at the risk of his own. Had Smith performed such a heroic deed on the field of battle he would be recommended for a Victoria Cross. INTERMEDIATE EDUCATION. — The Wyndham workmen have decided to continue paying the school pence up to the end of the year, and to hand over the sum to the authorities towards establishing an inter- mediate school at Bridgend. CONCERT.—Monday evening last a concert in con- nection with the English Baptist Church at Tynewydd was held at the Weslevan schoolroom. Rev. W. E. Robinson presided, the artistos being Mr. W. Davies (Eos Myrnach), Mr. T. Llewellyn, Mr. E. Howe, Mr. F. Pivot, Miss Cassie Rees, Mr. Fred Slocombe, Miss Jessie Evans, Mr. Scott Chilton, Miss E. Davies, and Miss M. A. Davies. The artistes did their work exceedingly well. The choir, under the conductorship of Mr. Fred Pivot, also sang several anthems very nicely. COLLIERS' MEETING.—On Mabon's day a meeting was held by the colliers at the Wyndham Arms to consider some questions relating to their organisation. Mr. D. Beynon, a member of the Sliding-scale Com- mittee, was expected to attend, but he did not turn up. Mr. John Thomas, miners' agent, Garw Valley, was present, and addressed the meeting in Welsh and English. It was ultimately resolved to amalgamate the Ogmore Valley District of Miners with the Garw District. MINING CLASS.—A splendid start was made last Monday with the mining class at Tynewydd. This augurs well for its success.
ST. MARY HILL.
ST. MARY HILL. FIRE.—On Monday last a rick of hay, situate near St. Mary Hill Court Farm, was destroyed by fire. The cause of the fire is stated to be the result of a boy's playfulness with matches.

PONTYCYMMER. NODDFA CHOIR.—This choir was amongt the un- successful^competitors at the Pontypridd Eisteddfod on Monday last. Mr. T. Richards, A.C., was the adjudicator of preliminary contests only at this eisteddfod, and his recognition as an adjudicator of repute was generally accepted.
LOCAL LEGAL APPOINTMENT.
LOCAL LEGAL APPOINTMENT. We understand that Mr. T. J. Hughes, solicitor, Bridgend, has this week received an intimation that the Lord Chancellor has been pleased to appoint him to be a Commissioner to administer oaths in the Supreme Court of Judicature in Eng- land. Mr. Hughes was admitted in 1885, a.nd holds tho offices of clerk to the Bridgend Urban Sanitary Authority, and hon. secretary of the South Glamorgan Liberal Association. We desire to congratulate Mr. Hughes upon his fresh appoint- ment.
ST. JOHN'S AMBULANCE CLASSES.—Dr. Alfred Evans, who so successfully conducted the St. John's Ambulance Classes at Pontypridd last winter, will re- open the same for students of the first stage on Monday evening next in order that an examination may take place before Christmas, when it is intended to open classe i for students of the second stage. The school- room of the Congregational Chapel has been kindly placed at the disposal of Dr. Evans.
TREHERBERT. PERFECT THRIFT.—On Tuesday evening last a meeting was held at the Board Schools, Treherbert, Mr. Evans in the chair, under the auspices of the Per- fect Thrift Building Society. A splended lecture on the advantages to be derived therefrom was delivered to a large audience by Mr. William Horsley, Harrow Gate, Leeds. Mr. E. P. Davies, the secretary of the Treorky branch, said that the society in that town was in a prosperous condition, and although it had been in existence but a few months had a membership roll of 390. Several ballots had taken place, and hundreds of pounds had been paid out to the successful members.
PONTYPRIDD. PERFECT THRIFT.—It is intended to start a Per- fect Thrift Building Society at Pontypridd, and arrangements are already being made to hold a public meeting for the purpose of showing the advantages to be derived from such a society. A PROPOSED EISTEDDFOD.—Messrs. Poole and James, the energetic proprietors of tee People's Park, are making arrangements for the holding of an eistedd- fod on a grand scale at the above-named place of amusement at an early date. The eisteddfod will probably be musical throughout, and the prizes will be perhaps the largest ever offered outside the national institution. LICENSED VICTUALLERS' ASSOCIATION. — On Friday (to-day) the annual dinner of the Pontypridd and the Rhondda Valleys Licensed Victuallers'Associ- ation will be held at the Butcher's Arms, Pontypridd. A full report will appear in our next issue. BILLIARD HANDICAP. — The final heat of the billiard handicap, which took place at the Liberal Club, came off on Friday evening last the first prize (I5s.) was carried away by Mr. Harry Oliver who beat Mr. J. Mackintosh by 17 points. The second prize (10s.) was awarded to Mr. Mackintosh, and the third (5s.) to Mr. F J. Harris, Pontypridd Chronicle. The games committee of the club are making arrangements for another handicap, which will shortly take place. CHAMBER OF TRADE.—On Tuesday evening last the ordinary meeting was held at the Restaurant, Market-square, Mr. H. S. Davies, president, in the ch1.ir.-A long discussion took place upon the question of the incorporation of Pontypridd, and it was resolved to collect further evidence with reference to the move- ment, and the committee already appointed to take the matter up was supplemented by Messrs. David Row- lands, J. Snape, W. H. Key, A. O. Evans, W. Spickett, and W. Jones. It was also decided to hold public meetings in the town, and submit the statistics and information collected to their consideration.—It was also fesolved to communicate with the Taff Vale Rail- way Company, requesting them to run a train from Ynysybwl to meet the 11 p.m. at Aberdare Junction. PROPOSED COTTAGE HOSPITAL.—A meeting of the various trades' societies was held on Tuesday evening last at the Malster's Arms, Mr. J. Gaze (Chain Makers Union) in the chair, for the purpose of discussing the advisability of establishing a cottage hospital at Pontypridd. After a long discussion it was resolved to wait upon Mr. Lennox at his residence on Saturday next in order to discuss the best means of carrying out this project. A letter was read from Mr. Lennox stating that he would be pleased to meet the deputation. THE COUNTY COUNCIL ELECTION.—Already the Conservatives of the Graig Ward, Pontypridd, have selected a champion for the coming contest for County Council honours in the ward in the person of Mr. Dd. Leyshon, chairman of the Local Board. Two gentle- men—prominent amongst the Liberals of the town— are spoken of as probable candidates in theLiberal in- terest. Bnt pending the decision of Me. Councillor James Roberts, the present representative, who has not yet given a decided answer as to whether he will contest the ward, no decision has been arrived at. No time is to be lost, as the ward is perhaps the most Conservative of the three at Pontypridd. TEMPERANCE ENTERTAINMENT.—On Saturday evening last a temperance entertainment was held at Sardis Chapel, Pontypridd, Mr. Stephen Davies in the chair. The attendance was, as is usual at these monthly entertainments, very good. The meeting opened with an address from the chairman, followed by an overture by Master T. Edwards, Pwllgwaun, after which Mr. John Williams favoured the meeting with a song. Miss Parry, who followed with a recita- tion, was loudly applauded. For singing at first sight, the party led by Mr. D. Williams (Llew Llan) was awarded the prize. An address on the Effect of alcohol on the nervous system," was delivered by Mr. Evan R. Evans (South Wales Star), after which followed a song by Miss Jones and a recitation, That piece of blue ribbon," by Master Emrys Lewis. Messrs. D. and R. J. Williams (Llew Llan) and his son simply charmed the audience with a well-rendered duet, and the reading of Mr. James Davies was most pathetically given. Two songs by Messrs. Griffith and David Wiliams preceded an impromptu competi- tion, the prize for which was divided between Messrs. J. Bussell and E. R. Evans, and Messrs. James Davies and Elias Jones. And a quartette by Mr. G. Morgan and party brought a most enioyabie entertainment to a close. The adjudicators were Messrs. George Wil- liams, John Thompson, and W. Thompson.

YNYSYBWL. THANKSGIVING SERVICES.—On Tuesday thanks- giving services were held at Christ Church, upon which occasion a very large congregation was present. The Church was nicely decorated with fruit, and the different produce from the soil for the occasion. The resident curate, Rev. John Jones conducted the ser- vices. Rev. S. Rowland Jones, vicar of Glvntaff, preached in English, and the Rev. Peter Williams, vicar of Troedyrhiw, in Welsh. The following Sun- day, November 1st, special thanksgiving services were held, at which the Rev. Llewellyn Davies, vicar of Llanwonno, preached throughout. DEBATING SOCIETY. — The Ynysybwl Mutual Improvement Society held their first debate at the English Wesleyan Chapel on Wednesday evening, the 28th October. There was a good attendance, and the plaudits given the different speakers manifested great enthusiasm amongst those assembled. The Rev. W. B. Jones, Noddfa Baptist Chapel, was the president, and amongst others we noticed Alderman Gwilym Jones, Mr. J. T. Davies. cashier, and Mr. Edgar A. Lewis, the secretaries. The subject discussed was-" Is Sec- tarianism beneficial or injurious to Religion." Mr. Henry James (Trefinfab) took the affirmative, and Mr. David Rogers, news agent, the negative. A capi- tal debate followed, in which the following took part: —Messrs. — Maunde, Mynachdy Colliery Benjamin Edwards, grocer; David James, Edwin Tanner, Joseph Howells, and John Lewis (Ap Gwalia). The next debate takes place on Wednesday, the 11th inst., when it is exoected there will be a strong muster.

PENTRE. CONCERT.—Two grand concerts were given at the Drill-hall on Thursday and Saturday. The artistes were Miss Mattie Davies, soprano; Miss Annie Davies, contralto; Mr. R. W. Evan3, tenor. The violinist was Mr. Arthur Angle (who was erroneously advertised on the bills as" leader," instead of "mem- ber of the Cardiff Orchestral Society), and Ap Pearce performed on the harp. The Pentre Temper- ance Brass Band played two pieces, with capital in- tonation and execution. Miss Mattie Davies's excel- lent voice and fine appearance made her a great favourite. Miss Annie Davies is a very acceptable contralto, and the two victorious artistes fresh from Swansea did their work well. Mr. Angle, accompanied by Mrs. Angle, charmed the Pentreites with his violin.
FERNDALE. COUNTY COUNCIL REPRESENTATION.—So well has Councillor Morgan 'l'hom'1s, represented Ferndale and Mardy in the Glamorgan County Council, that strong hopes are entertained that at the end of three years' tenure of office he will 08 returned unopposed. The fact that Mr. T. Bevan, who so strongly opposed his election, spoke at the meeting on Tuesday evening, and supported the vote of confidence in Mr. Thomas, speaks for itself. FATAL ACCIDENT.—On Friday last a sad accident befel a married man, named Evan Morris, residing at Church-street, and a young man, named William Llewellyn, by a fall in the No. 1 pit. It appears that the two men were working together at the time, and that a large piece of earth fell on them killing one on the spot. The other died in a few hours. TECHNICAL INSTRUCTION.—The technical in- struction classes established in this town some weekll arro chiefly througk the instrumentality of Mr. T. Bevan, cashier, are being very well patronised. The members at present number about 80, and the number of students in each subject are pretty equally divided. The largest classes are those dealing with mathematics, mining, and geology. Great interest is manifested in the same, and the committee of which Mr.j D. Hannah is the chairman put forth every effort to com- mand success.
LLWYNYPIA. CRUELTY TO ANIMALS.—It has been ooiuted out J to us that in this part of the district considerable inte- rest is manifested in the cruel sport called shooting matches, at which a large number of poor pigeons are put to death in the most cruel manner. The police are powerless in the matter, and the fact ought to be made known to the Society for the Preventiou of Cruelty to Animals. We trust shat some steps will soon be taken to utilise the Partridge Hotel Recreation Grounds to some better purpose. ANNIVERSARY SERVICES were held on Sunday and Monday in connection with Salem Welsh Congre- gational Chapel, when the pulpit was occupied by Miss Rosina Evans, the evangelist, and Rev. J. W. Price, Troedyrhiw. The chapel during each and all of the meetings was crowded, many being unable to enter the place of worship. The preaching was excellent, and the collections reached a considerable amount.
TONYPANDY. CHAMBER OF TRADE.—On Tuesday evening last the usual monthly meeting of the Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade was held at the Richards' Coffee Tavern, Tonypandy, Mr. J. F. Phillips in the. chair. Amongst other subject discussed were the minutes of the special general meetings held with reference to the Gilchrist Lectures, and the advisability of petitioning the Postmaster-General for a postal office at Coedy- meibion. Three delegates were also appointed to attend a meeting of the Federation at Merthvr. COUNTY COUNCIL ELECTION.—SO far no actual steps have been taken to appoint candidates for the forthcoming County Council Election. Councillors Richard Lewis and W. Williams are the present re- presentatives, and have intimated their intention of contesting the wards again. Messrs. W. W. Hood and. W. Pritchard, Clydach Vale, are spoken of as probable Unionist candidates.
PORTH. EVANGELISTIC MEETINGS.—During the past week evangelistic meetings have been held in connection with the English Congregational Church at Porth, and each evening services were held thereat, amongst the preachers who occupied the pulpit being the Revs. R. Mon Evans, A.T.S., Porth; J. W. Evans, Tre- herbert; J. Cooper, Porth J. Williamson, M.A Cardiff; Owen Owens (B.), Porth and W. S. Charles, Ferndale. The meetings were all well attended.

PENYGRAIG. PASSENGER TRAFFIC ON THE GREAT WESTERN. —A movement is now on foot to have the Great Western Company to run passenger trains from Pont- yclown to Penygraig. Now and then for the last fifteen years efforts have been put forth, but all in vain. It is thought that the change in the manage- ment of the Great Western Company, and that now is an opportune time to restart the movement, especially as thero is a talk of the Taff Vale Company running trains to Clydach Vale. A meeting will be held some time next week, and a committee will be appointed to take the matter up. ACCIDENT.—On Saturday last a fatal accident took place at No, 2 pit owing to which two brothers named Lewis, natives of Bridgend, were badly injured, one of the unfortunate young men had his leg broken in two or three places, and his head was also seriously injured. The accident was rendered more distressing owing to the fact that one of the brothers had only that morn- ing returned to work after a long illness.
THE COUNTY COUNCIL ELECTIONS.
THE COUNTY COUNCIL ELECTIONS. COUNCILLOR MORGAN THOMAS AND HIS CONSTITUENTS. On Tuesday evening last a public meeting was held in the Schoolroom, at Ferndale, where County Councillor Morgan Thomas had promised to give a report of his stewardship. The chair was occupied by Mr. Richard Evans, and amongst others present we noticed Alderman J. Jones Griffiths, Rev. D. G. Williams, Mr. Hannah, Mr. T. Bevan, Mr. W. Lewis. &c.—The Chairman having stated the object of the meeting and made a few pithy remarks, proceeded to read letters of apology for absence from Messrs. W. Matthias, W. A. Lloyd, and W. Evans (sub-agent). — Mr. Councillor Morgan Thomas, who was greeted with a loud burst of cheers on rising, said that, like most Bills granted by the Tory Government, the Local Government Act was lacking in many things. They had not the powers which they were supposed to have, and almost all that they did was done subject to the approval of somebody in London. ('- Shame.") After referring to the inadequate control of the police, and of the ap- pointment of a chief-constable, and the political discussions in the County Council, the speaker said he was glad to find that the technical classes at Ferndale were well attended. The Council had decided to grant the sons of working men who might win scholarships at the Cardiff University College an additional sum of jS40, in order that they might live at Cardiff without being a burden to their parents. He went 011 to say that the pre- sent Government had promised District and Parish Councils, but had failed to carry out their promise. When these Councils were established, they would take over the work of the smaller local bodies. He should like to see the property qualifications of the Local Boards and Board of Guardians done away with, and was in favour of voting by ballot in electing members for such bodies. After referring to the gross injustice which was done to Noncon- formists by the provision that a clergyman of the Church of England should be the chaplain at Bridgend Asylum, he said that Mr. Osborne Morgan's Burial Bill had been a failure, not. as the Bishop of St. Asaph had said because Welshmen did not care for it, but because when the minister did the work the parson pocketed the fee. (Ap- plause.)—Alderman J. Jones Griffiths, in the course of an excellent speech, after referring to the splendid work which Councillor Thomas had done at the Council, said that he heartily wished the time was near when parish and district coun- cils were established, and that would be the nearest approach to Home Rule they could ever hope to attain. (Applause.)—Rev. D. G. Williams delivered a strong address in Welsh, in the course of which he said that the people of Ferndale could not do better than select Councillor Thomas as their representative. (Cheers.)—Mr. W. Ellis proposed, and Mr. D. Hannah seconded, a vote of confidence in Councillor Thomas, which was carried amid loud applause. — Councillor Thomas returned thanks, and after a vote of thanks had been ac- corded the chairman for presiding, and to Alder- man Griffiths for being present, a successful meeting concluded.
LLAUGEINOR SCHOOL BOARD.
LLAUGEINOR SCHOOL BOARD. The monthly meeting of this Board was held at the Fox and Hounds, Brvnmenin. on Wednesday evening, present—Mr. W. Llewellyn (chairman), Messrs. Edward Lewis. J. Roberts.

LAUNCH OF IA TUGBOAT AT BARRY.
LAUNCH OF IA TUGBOAT AT BARRY. On Tuesday the Barry Graving Dock and Engineering Company, Limited, launched before a large attendance of spectators at their dry dock a twin-screw iron-tug boat for the Barry Railway Company. On leaving the ways she was named Clive in the usual way, by Mrs. Davies wife of Captain Davies, Dockmaster. The Clive, which is a very handsome model, and intended by taeowncrs for towing vessels in their docks, is 90 feet long between perpendiculars moulded breadth 19ft. 6d.; and moulded depth, 11ft.: and from top of deck beams to top of floor amidships 10ft. 9}in. She has been built of class 100 Al at Lloyd's, and has Lloyd's certificate for engines and boilers, which are of the latest and most approved type. The Clive will be a great acquisi- tion to the towing power at Barry Dock, and the builders may justly be proud of the beautiful craft they have turned out. We may mention the Graving Dock Company are now building a pair of caissons for the Dock Company for their new Commercial Graving Dock, which will be com- pleted in a few months.
GOVERNMENT INQUIRY AT CADOXTON…
GOVERNMENT INQUIRY AT CADOXTON BARRY. THE LOCAL BOARD'S PUBLIC WORKS. OPPOSITION BY MR. EDWARD HUGHES. At the Local Board Offices, Cadoxton, Barry, on Wednesday morning, Mr. Samuel J. Smith, C.E., an inspector of the Local Government Board, held an inquiry into the applications of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board for permission to borrow money for the purpose of carrying out various public works in their district. Mr. J. Arthur Hughes appeared on behalf of the Local Board, and Mr. Downes (instructed by Mr. Jackson) opposed on behalf of Mr. Edward Hughes the applications in reference to the following :— Street improvements in Barry-road, widening of highway near Barry Harbour, and the kerbing and channelling of the Holton and Weston-road. Amongst those present were Messrs. J. C. Meggitt, P. J. O'Donnell, W. Thomas (Cadoxton), J. J. Williams, and J. Barstow (members of tho Board), Dr. G. Neale., L. Lewis, E. Hughes, Smith-Jones, W. B. Shepherd (Barry), Money (Barry), Dr. Milward, F. P. Jones-Lloyd, G. Garrett, — Milward, D. (Griffiths, &c. The first application was to borrow the sum of £300 for street crossings in the district, viz.—12 at Barry, and eight at Cadoxton, in support of which Mr. J. C. Pardoe (surveyor) gave evidence. Tlitesecond application was for £1,200, for the im- provement of Barry-road, Cadoxton. Mr. J. A. Hughes (clerk to the Board) read the letters which had passed between Mr. E. Hughes and the Local Government Board, and between the latter add the Local Board, and stated that he (the clerk) had advised the Board that there were two courses open to them in reference to Barry—viz., either to regard it as a public highway and to pay for the widening and improving out of the rates, or to regard it as a private street, and to make the owners of property fronting on the road pay for such improvements. The Board had decided that they would adopt the former course—viz., to regard the widening and improvement as the improving of a highway, and to pay for it out of the rates.— Plans and estimates were handed in to the in- spector, also a copy of Mr. J. A. Hughes's report to the Local Boord on the matter. The third application was for permission to borrow money for the widening of the old highway near Barry Harbour. The ori- ginal was for j6625, but this was reduced to £50, because the Board were unable to get a certain portion of the land near Barry Cottage.—Mr. J. A. Hughes said that the Board had not got a definite answer in reference to the piece of land in question, therefore they proposed for the present simply to widen the high- way from Harbour-road to Church-road. The whole of the highway would be 36 feet wide, with the ex- ception of the portion oppposite Harbour Cottage, which would only be 23 feet wide unless the Board could get the necessary consent of land to make it 36 feet. The Board by no means despaired of getting the piece of land referred to, but they had not got it at present. It was the only public highway leading- from Barry to the west of the district. The only other two roads were a private road—viz., Porthkerry-road, and a private road running past the Barry Railway Station belonging to the Barry Railway Co., which had affixed a toll- gate upon it, and which was not available for public use. The next application was for £2,403 for kerbing and channelling the Holton and Weston-road. It may here be mentioned that the inspector was the same inspector who had presided at the inquiry when the Board applied for permission to borrow money to construct the Holton and Court-roads, consequenty it was not necessary to go' into the matter in detail, as he was fully conversant with the thoroughfare referred to.—Mr. J. A. Hughes said it was necessary to kerb and channel the roads as there was no protection for the footpaths, and it was found impossible to keep the footpaths dry and to get the water off the roads unless they were curbed and channelled. The Board had constructed two important public thoroughfares through the centre of the district. and it was, therefore necessary that the whole of the road should be kerbed and channelled in order to keep them in good order, and that there should be a good footpath for people to walk on. The Inspector then proceeded to consider the application of the Board for the permission to borrow £1,200 for private improvements round places of worship. Owing to the fact that the private improvements are not able to be carried out in certain streets, such as in Kennilworth- road, &c., this application had to be amended from £ 1,200 to £300 only. The next application was for the sum of £, 700 for a slaughter-honse and Local Board depot.— Mr. J. A. Hughes stated that there was no licensed or public slaughter-house in the district.—The Inspector said he would require a statement show- ing how many beasts were slaughtered in the district, and the number of butchers residing in the district, &c. — Mr. J. A. Hughes said the Board required a depot shed to keep their steam road roller, carts, &c., and that they were at present paying rent for a yard at Cadoxton. They had recently acquired five acres of land on lease for a term of 99 years at a ground rent of £125 per annum, and they proposed to utilise that land for the purpose of providing a slaughter-house and Local Board depot. It was suggested to make a private road across the field, giving access to the slaughter-house. The Board were of opinion that it was yet premature to attempt to lay out a large sum of money in the erection of a public mortuary, and the present buildings were only intended as a temporary ex- pedient. The buildings were of corrugated iron, and were so constructed that they would be able to be used as stables, &c., in the future. In refe- rence to the mortuary, coroners' juries had on more than one occasion pointed out the desirability of one being provided, and in two or three in- stances dead bodies of sailors had had to be placed in the tool shed at the cemetery, which was not a fit place for ths purpose.—Mr. J. C. Pardoe, the Local Board surveyor, gave evidence in regard to each of the applications. Councillor J. C. Meggitt (Chairman of the Local Board) was called by Mr. Arthur Hughes in sup- port of the application. He defended the action of the Local Board in the matter on account of the urgent necessity for constructing good roads, and the precedent that had been set in the case of the Hoiton-Weston-road. He mentioned that the gentleman who now opposed the application voted in favour of a similar one when he was a member of the Board. Mr. Meggitt, questioned also if the policy of the Board was not cheaper than if they made the property owners incur the expense. The Board now got the land in consideration of the fact that they (the Board) made tho private im- provements. Land on the Holton-road was sold at £1,000 per acre, and property owners would probably want more for frontage.—Cross-examined When the Holton-road private improvements were carried out by the Board, counsel's opinion had not been obtained. One or two of the Local Board members were property owners in Barry-ro: d. Mr. Geo. Thomas had not been more active in the matter than he (witness). Mr. Edward Hughes gave evidence in opposition to the proposed loan. He said he objected to the loans for Barry-road, Holton. and Court-roads, and the Old Lane. There were 97 shops and houses and two large hotels in Barry-road. It would be a serious thing for the district if the rule that the Local Board wished to apply to Barrry-road were made to apply to the whole district. It would mean an expenditure of something like £40,000. He thought the property owners should bear the cost: and he asserted that there was very little traffic on the Barry-road, and there was a big gra- dient. He opnosed the proposed loan to Canon- street for similar reasons. Cross-examined by Mi-. J. A. Hughes He knew some money had already been spent in Barry-road, and that the contract had been let. He was aware that such liabilities must be discharged, and that they must come out of the current rate if his (witness's) opposition to the scheme proved unsuccessful. It would be better to pay very heavy rates for one year, if a stop could thereby be put to such a scheme of the Local Board. Mr. C. H. Dowrtt opposed the loan for widening the Old Lane. because the inhabitants of the dis- trict, by going round another way, could avoid the narrow road. Tie opposed the loan for kerbing and channelling Holton and Court-roads, because it was premature to kerb and channel these roads until houses had been built, and there were two good raised footpaths there already. He urged that the frontagers in Barry-road and Old Lane should be called upon to make the private improve- ments, under section 50 of the Act. Theirs was the banent, and theirs should be the cost. He dis- claimed any animus against the Local Board, but •he must say that the Board had done the work in Barry-rop-d, where they were told not to do so by the Local Government Board. He had not known when the enquiry opened that the contract for Barry-road had been let. He recognised that the opposition was therefore too late, but he must say that the ratepayers had been most sonndalously deprived of a chance to protest against the Board's action. There was still time, however, to prevent this injustice to the general body of ratepayers being done in Canon-street, and be would urge the inspector to use the discretion in his power to save the ratepayers in that instance. This concluded the inquiry. Mr, Smith drove over the roads in dispute, with Mr. Meggitt, Mr. Arthur Hughes, and Mr. Pardoe, in the afternoon. j

DINAS POWIS HIGHWAY BOARD.
DINAS POWIS HIGHWAY BOARD. The monthly meeting of the Dinas Powis High- way Board was held on Wednesday at the St. Nicholas Police-court. There were present-Mr. O. H. Jones (chairman), General Lee (vice-chairman), and Messrs. J. Smith (New Wallace), T. Thomas (Garw), T. Matthews (Fontigary), D. W. Savours (Rhoose), E. Rees (Peterstone), W. Lougher (Llan- carfan), O. Williams (Hampston), J. W. Williams (clerk), and E. Raymond Lewis (surveyor).-A letter was read from Messrs. Dyne, Steel and Co. in reference to the Pontsarn Bridge contract, stating that the Board's surveyor had given them instruc- tions to commence the work.—The Surveyor, in reply to the Chairman, said he denied positively that he had given them any such instruction.-It was stated, however, that the Llandaff Highway Board had now given their con- sent, and that the company guaranteed that the bridge would bear a moveable weight of 15 tons, Formal consent to commence the work was ordered to be given.—Mr. W. Smith said he had. seen the Wenvoe Siding Company in reference to their contributing towards the cost of widening and improving the road to the Wenvoe siding, and they would only consent to give stone, labour, &c.,to the extent of £10, towards the work.-This was considered exceedingly unsatisfactory, as the Board had been asked to do the work, and the company would materially benefit if the road was improved.—General Lee said he thought the Barry Company and the Siding Company ought to give £ 100 towards the work. (Hear, hear.) The Board could then borrow the remaining £ 300, and the work could be carried out.—The Clerk was deputed to write to the company in reference to the matter.-The Surveyor reported on the various complaints made by Miss Jenner, and made various recommendations, including a sug- gestion that the sum of A6 should be expended on the path from Twynrodin to Wenvoe.-It was decided to expend a sum not exceeding £ 3 on the path.—General Lee's scheme in reference to the bettering of the system of repairing the roads in the Board's district having been printed and cir- culated amongst the members, various questions were asked. The Chairman said the system sug- gested by General Lee would certainly result in the saving of a good deal of money in repairs.- A discussion ensued in reference to the salary proposed to be given to the roadmen, viz., £ 1 per week-one or two of the members think- ing that sum would be too much. — The Chairman and General Lee differed, the latter remarking that the inducement of £ 1 per week would enable them to have a better class of men, and the Board would save money in the long run.—It was decided to consider the whole ques- tion at the next meeting.-At the suggestion of General Lee, the clerk was deputed to write to the Local Board, with the view of the latter repairing Pencoedtre-road at the expense of the highway authority.-The Surveyor having lost two of the parish wages books, he was deputed to procure signed vouchers from the road men.—This was the principal business.
