THE LOCAL PAINTERS' STRIKE.—Towards the nd of last week the members of the Barry District Trades' Council issued a circular in connection with the painters' strike in the Barry and Cadoxton die trict, in which they say that the Trades' Council are of opinion that the dispute has now arrived at such a stage as to render it imperative on the part of all friends of Trades Unionism in the district to come to the assistance of the painters who are still out in cou- sequence of some of the master painters of this dis- trict refusing to take back all the workmen who came out on strike six weeks ago, thereby endeavouring to throw the Union men out of employment. In order to do this the Council ask and recommend that all painting work be given to certain firms, who recognise the Painters' Union and the working hours as agreed upon between employers and workmen. The firms of Messrs. Dando and Sons.and Morgan Brothers. Cadox- ton, are the only two not mentioned in the cirtular. MINISTERIAL GALL.-The members of Philadel- phia Welsh Baptist Chapel have unanimously decided to ask the Rev. Morris Isaac, of Llanfaircaereinion (Welshpool), to become their pastor. We trust that Mr. Isaac will consider the matter favourably, but as yet no reply has been received. We are informed that Mr. Is aac possesses some excellent qualities as a minister, and we believe in the event of his accepting the above pastorate he will be an acquisition, not only to the church, but also to the locality. Our friends are making strenuous efforts in collecting funds towards the erection of a new chapel, and we trust the public will assist them literally in their endeavours.

WELSH DIXXER-At the close of the meeting of the Eisteddfod Committee, who met last Tuesday at the Shaftesbury. Mr. W. Llewellyn Williams (Sonth Wales Star) suggested the desirability of holding, a Welsh dinner at Barry on St. David's Day next. The proposal was warmly accepted by those present, and it was unanimously resolved to hold a Welsh dinner at the Barry Hotel on March 1st. Mr. W. Llewellyn Williams (South Wales Star) and Mr. J. R. Llewellyn (Barry Deck JVeics) were appointed secretaries, and were requestad to write to his Honour Judge Gwilym Williams, inviting him to take the chair. It was fur- thermore determined that the price of the tickets should be half-a-crown, and that ladies be admitted. It is uncertain at what time in the evening the dinner will commence, but it is hoped that the Barry Com- pany will make arrangements to run a late train to Cadoxton. This is the first attempt at holding a Welsh dinner in the district, and when we consider the cheap- ness of the tickets, nncl the excellence of the programme (for the services of several excellent singers have been already secured) the attempt will be certain to be crowned with success.
