A BRUTAL FATHER JN THE ) RHONDDA. SHOCKING ILI^TRE ATMENT OF A CHILD. At Cymmer Police-court on Wednesday—before Dr. 'Parry and Mr. Thomas Jones — Stephen Thomas, collier, residing m Winslade-terrace, Trealaw, was charged with cruelty to his child, ■five years of age.—Mr. Spowart, of the firm of Messrs. Morgan and Rhys, Pontypridd, defended. It appeared from the evidence of the prisoner's wife that she had been carried to the prisoner about eight years, and that they had led a most unhappy life, prisoner having on numerous occa- sions beaten her unmercifully. She-had had four children by him. About three years ago prisoner sold all the household effects and most of her and the littte children's wearing apparel, and went to America, leaving his family behind absolutely destitute and homeless. Having lived for some time in the United States,1 he wrote to his wife stating that he had got married there, and as he would never return to Wales, she could take what course title pleased regarding her future life. About fifteen months ago he altered his mind and came, .back to the Rhondda, but did not return to his wife, who: had lived,since his departure with her parents in the locality. He rented a house in the immediate vicinity .and took away the little boy from the custody of his mother to live with him and the housekeeper he had engaged. The little child was, however, habituallyiineglecfced by the .ptisoner, who spent most of Ms leisure time in public-houses in the district, reclaming there frequently until eleven o'clock at night. The little child .was practically homeless, and sometimes watering about the roads as late as eleven o'clock in the evening. On Tuesday evening prisoner retu&s4d.;home drunk, and finding fthe child absent vant to the little boy's grandmother's residence whore the child,hai-, gone for foodand shelter. He immediately seized the child, polled him violently off the stool whereon he wta seated, and administered a furious kick on the cold's leg, hurling hip: off the ground through the kitchen door several yards away, j He also beat tito child savagely QL the back, and struck him besitally with his fUi on the head, causing the dial I to fall heavily ^against some railings outside, and a wound ve the eye, which bled precisely. The prisoner was soon afterwards arreted by Sergeant •>? £ ayle, Tony- pandy, and tak$? to the lock-up. The little boy having been partially divested cf-iiis clothing and the bruises tn his back exhibited to the ^magistrates, the B**iich remarked that the injuries iadictcd upon the child's body were enough to make any humane person shudder.—Bii^oner was eej&ienced to two mosiths' imprisonment with hard lab&ar, and ordered fcc pay the costs, aud-Sergeant Hayie was instructed to place the child V^^orarily Ui> tic custody of thetsnindmother.

The evidence showed that the .parties were d racking together on WediiKuds/y oswuing in the hit' of a public-house in the vicinity, and a dispute .s.ose between them in regard to tiii-ktiestioii of GOkrnment, Edwards contending that workmen invariably received higher wfigos wften a Tory Government was in power, and Daily maintaining -that a Liberal Government was si ways the bet^.r one for the people. Daily's tesaper eventually became uncon- I trollable, and he struck his oppon-t on the ear j with a sharp instrument, inflicting .-h nasty cut, which bled freely.—Police-constable J%ms appre- hended prisoner, and found upon hict a clasped k&ife.—Prisoner was sentenced to tw," months' imprisonment with hard labour.

CHARGES AGAINST TON- GWYNLAIS PUBLICANS. At Llandaiff Polise-court on Monday-before Mr. Henry Lewia, ehairman, Mr. Evan Lewis, and Colonel Woods—Charles Crandon, landlord of the Haulier's ANUS, Tongwynlais, was charged with selling beer to other than bona-fide travellers, on Sunday, the 10th inst. Mr. Spencer (Spencer, Corbett, and Evans) .defended.-Poliae-constable Evan Jones, Whitchurch, who preferred the charge, stated that on the day in question he visited de- fendant's premises and found four men sitting down with ajugcontaining beer on the table. On examining "the travellers' book, witness failed to fiiad the names of these men, who subsequently gave addresses in St. Mary-street, Cardiff-road, and High-street, iLlaadaff. In several cases the men's homes^were proved to be nearer defendant's house than the three miles allowed by the Sunday Closing Act.—Mr. tiolden, surveyor to the Local Highway Board, -was called for the defence, and stated that according to his measurements the dis- tance over the nearest public footway was more than three miles.—Superintendent Wake poimted out that the. distance limit was really immaterial in a case of that sort, as the men admittedly only went to Tongwynlais for the purpose of obtaining intoxicating drink, and they were therefore not bona-fide travellers. As the point had been raised, however, he-would .ask for an adjournment in order that theiiieasurBments might be fnllytested. The case was then adjourned for a fortnight. Defendant -.JFJIS also summoned for allowing drunkenness 0.0 ihis premises on the same date.- Police-constabte. i Jones and Police-constable Lane supported the information, which was to the effect that a man wasrtound: lying in the back kitchen drunk. When taxed he gave various addresses, and was taken dlttO. custody, and subsequently fined at that coytc fc.—The magistrates stated their determination te^do all in their power to step Sunday drinking. a.nd nnedtdefcHdant £ 5 and costs, or a months impsifionnaent in default of payment.

IT CAMBRIAN ASSOCIATION-OF MINERS. MONTHLY MEETING AT TON. THE PARLIAMENTARY FUND TO BE STRENGTHENED. The monthly racing of delegate.* in connection with the Cambrian Association of Minrir- was held on Saturday at the Windsor Hotel. Ton, Ystrad, under the presidency of Mr. Benjamin Morgan. Mr. Evan Jones, Mountain Ash, occupied the vice- chair, and 34 collieries were represented. Mr. W. Abraham, M.P. (Mabon), and Mr. W. Evans, the agent, and Councillor T. Daronwy Isaac (represen- tative on the Sliding-scale Committee) were also present. Considerable discussion took place with reference to the Parliamentary fund. A proposal was received from the Navigation Colliery, Mountain Ash, that instead of adopting the suggestion of the Albion Colliery, viz., that all workmen should pay Is. per annum, they should pay the Parliamentary expenses as workmen con- nected with the division and district, the same to be levied on all collieries in proportion to their numerical strength, subscriptions to be solicited as before from tradesmen and others residing in the district who are of the same political views." Ultimately the following resolution was adopted with unanimity :— That this meeting affirms the principles that the Labour representative of this district in Parliament should be supported by a fund provided by the work- men within the district, assisted by locai tradesmen and friends holding Liberal principles; that the amount per head to be contributed shall be fixed at the annual meeting of the Rbondda Labour and Liberal Association and that the workmen's contri- butions shall be collected by the Miners' Association and transferred to the Labour and Liberal Association. Further, inasmuch as the annual meeting of the Labour and Liberal Association has just been held, this meeting agrees that the first contribution be three- pence per man. to be paid within the next six months. The annual meeting of the South Wales and Monmouthshire Colliery Workmen's Federation, fixed for Monday, was postponed until the 15th of August. It was resolved to support the re-election of all the retiring officers, and to nominate the following for seats on the Executive Committee —Messrs. Henry Bowen, North Navigation W. D. Owen. Tylorstown Archibald Galloway; Evan Jones, Mountain Ash and W. Evans, miners. agent.

VOLUNTEER INTELLIGENCE. GLAMORGAN ARTILLERY CORPS IN CAMP. The annual regimental c imp of the 2nd Jlamor- gan Artillery Volunteers opened 011 Saturday at Lavernoek. The headquarter companies paraded at the Drill-hal!, Dumfries-place. at four o'clock, and half HIl hour later left the T.L+f Vale Railway Station for the cimpin-r ground, travelling by special train. At the Great Western Station they were joined by 4"> men from Bridgend, while the Penarth and Barry detachments preceded them into camp earlier in the afternoon. An advance party, under Captain Tozer and Quartermaster- Sergeant Wilkins, had gone out on Monday last to pitch tents and make the necessary arrangements, so that when the regiment arrived on the Government ground they found every- thing prepared and in excellent order. Lavernoek Point, the locale of the camp, is pleasantly situated on an elevated piece of ground, and in the bright sunshine of Saturday the white bell-shaped tents, dotting the green turf, gave to the encampment a most picturesque appearance, and made camp life look the very counterpart of what it really is — prosaic and monotonous. Everything which could be done to augment the comfort of the men, and facilitate the carrying out of their duties was done. The rank and file were supplied with blankets, waterproof sheets and bedding for their tents, while the mess-room was spacious and comfortable, a portion being divided off for an ante-room. The officers' quarters have been admirably fitted up with every con- venience by Messrs. Culley and Sons, of Cardiff. A large and admirably situated tent has been set apart for the sergeants' mess, while a recreation tent for the men and a large canteen are also provided. Recognising the fact that the royal road to an Englishman's heart is through his stomach, a set of modern cooking apparatus has been installed, capable of providing for the wants of the whole of the brigade. The men's tents and the whole of the camping ground are lighted by electricity, the plant of which has been lent by Messrs. Nicholson and Tyler, of London and it may be interesting to note that a search light will be in use several evenings during the week, the engine having been supplied by Mr. Kyte, of Car- diff. The total strength of the regiment is 897 rank artf file, and up to Monday there were under canvas ibovt 400 men. Colonel C. H. Page is in command, the other officers being as follows Lieutenant- Colonel H. O. Fisher, Lieutenant-! Colonel Ingram, Captain and Adjutant Eyre, R.A.; Major Fry, Captains Regg, Crawshay, Thomas Dalziel, Handcock, Spencer, Taylor, and Brain Lieutenants Cooke, R. Ingram, M. Ingram, Price, Stallybrass. "Tellefsen, Lewis, Vivian, and Tweed Surgeon-Major Vachell, and Surgeon Griffiths. The camp was joined on Monday by Colonel Sir Edward Stockhill, K.C.B., M.P. There is also en- camped a battery of Royal Artillery. The head-quarters band of the 2nd Glamorgan Regiment is in attendance, under the conductor- ship of Mr. Paul Draper, and will remain through- out the week. A cyclist section and ambulance corps are also attached. On Sunday morning, at 11 o'clock, the Church parade was held. The service was conducted by the Acting Chaplain, the Rev. W. Sweet-Escott, B.A., in the open air, under the most propitious metereological auspices. The 250 Volunteers were augmented by a large contingent of civilians, and a goodly number of the gentler sex, including many of the officers' wives. The Chaplain delivered a pertinent homily from the 2nd Epistle of Timothy, 2, 3v.Thon, therefore, endure hard- ness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ." The vocal part of the service was accompanied by the Cardiff Headquarters' Band, under their bandmaster, Mr. Paul Draper, the opening voluntary, The Pilgrim's Song of Hope," by Baptiste, and the concluding one-the grand march. The Saxon," by Boggetti, being exquisitely rendered.—Col. Sir E. S. Hill then briefly addressed the corps, enjoining upon them the paramount importance of implicit obedience and discipline. The inspection of the camp by Sir E. S. Hill followed, and in commending the men for their efficiency, he took the opportunity of stating that in consequence of the wet weather last Saturday the report of the previous camp had been delayed. He, however, would give it nowinsayiagthat it was as highly satisfactory as the present one. During the afternoon and evening the band discoursed a selection of sacred music.
HIGHWAY ROBBERY AT PONTYPRIDD. At the Ystrad Police-court on Monday, before Mr. Ignatius Williams, Thomas Morris, lodging at 38, Rhondda-road, Pontypridd, was charged with highway robbery with violence on Friday last. Prosecutor, (John Hemer, Mason), living ait Blaengaiw, near Bridgend, deposed that on Fri- day afternoon last'he arrived at Pontypridd, and went to the Wheat Sheaf Hotel, where he met the prisoner, ^yhom ho had never seen before. They entered into a conversation, witness paying for some drufee. About nine o'clock in the eveniv-g they quitted the public-house, prisoner telling him he should sleep with him that night. While they were walking up along Graig- Wen road prisoner conducted him into a field through which ran a path and, having proceeded about a hundred yards over it, prrescer -struck him down violently. Wit- ness, tuning got up, asked why he had been knocked down. Prisoner instantly dealt him another blow, causing him to fall down heavily again. While on the ground witness was kicked by the prisoner on the head and about his eyes and meuth, and several times on the breast. Prisoner,-seeing the witness now in an almost helpless and*exhausted state, bent over him em. the gceucd and .wrenched from his pocket fee watck find chain and proloined his purse, contain- ing hilf^a-aovereign and 10s. in silver. Close by was a fiteep embankment, and the night being dark witness-esttceeded in making his escape down the slope. 8&e could! hear prisoner's footsteps about the sp.K -where the affair had taken place, and fee concluded that the ruffian was searching for him. He missaaTiiiisihat and coat, and shortlyafterwani., he gave keforaiation to Police-constable Evans.— Margaret tfofies, with whom prisoner lodged, deposed l&at-the prisoner asked her for the key of an ou-Aeuse at the rear of her residence <st Saturday merging, where it appeared a constable, later in ibe day, discovered the stolen watch. Superinten&i'* .Jones. Pontypridd, deposed thai; prisoner, ■& £ 'bemg formally charged with the offence, staited that he had picked up the watch, found in tke outhouse, on the road near Ponty-- pridd. Wituass had know the prisoner for some time past, and there were several con- victions roesrded against him.—Police-constable John Evans stated that when prosecutor gave I him information of the alleged assault and robbery the informant's face was covered with I blood and bload;oozed from his ears and trickled from his nose. ;Prisoner's clothing was also blood- stained in varusni-vparts. On the following day the officer arrested ibk-e, prisoner at the Ivy Bush Hotel tji the town, an.i be was at once conducted to the lock-up, where prosecutor instantly identified him, esoiaiming, '• Yom ought to he ashamed of yourself to beat me as yoei .did last night." Prisoner re- turned, I didn't fiee you last night after we left the Wheat Sheaf together. You ate trying to get me into trouble." The officer having exhibited to the prisoner the watch he had found in the out- hoosc at the back of prisoner's lodgings, the latter ejacc-lated, li You have been h- Clever." Sub- sequently the police officer inspected -the scene of the souffle between the .prosecutor audfcis assailant, and fo^ind congealed btLosd all about the place and upon some bushes nesar the spot. Seme of the blood-stained leaves wece produced in .court and exhibited to the Beneh.Prisoner resi^rked, in reply to -he Bench, that he had no recoKoction of of what iad occurred thait evening after he and the pro^outor had emerged from the public- house.—Pi's oner was committed for trisL.atthe assizes. r-

CORRESPONDENCE. THI 10 RULE MAJORITY. or,) fHE ED" O" VK" « s;;TfT -V U,E3 STAR," Si:—I be/ > tit .-ikyou t >• vuii- most pointed article of last w >e'c t, 1 n th" v-Vo.ible hostility to be expected fr .»ri ill • 1 •> tJitii't Unionists. It is ridi- culous to he.: r them, protest that Ill) majority that is not entirely KngiiVii has a right to control the legislature fur England. It is, more th m any- thing else. a direct vote of censure upon the method of legislation to which Ireland has always been subjected. Up to the present Ireland has always returned an overwhelming majority of her representatives in favour of self-government, and she has been compelled to accept the disgraceful legislation of people utterly ignorant of her real needs. And the moment there is a probability of this power being crushed, the Tories, like all cowards and tyrants, cry out against the very course they have hicherto held to be infallible. If any further incentive to Englishmen be needed to allow Ireland to be governed by her people, the present miserable attitude of this mongrel minority ought to be decisive. The United Kingdom has declared against the Tories who, true to the to their natural instincts, declare they will not be ruled by the voice of the people. The more their conduct is considered the dispicable it appears. For years poor Ireland has had the misfortune to be unable to reach the sym- pathy of the English people, in conse- quence of the most gross misrepresentation, and calumny with which her enemies have hidden her real condition but all extremes, of whatever character, have a contrary effect to what may be intended, and so with Ireland, the over-heaping of Coercion and oppression, combined with the un- daunted efforts of her Glorious Sons, have made public her wrongs, and thereby engaged the sympathies of the whole world. The Irish ques- tion occupies a position to-day that Young Ire- land's highest hopes never anticipated, it is the IrLh people who must be conciliated before a step can be taken in any other direction in the approaching Parliamentary session. This is as it should be. Ireland has long been compelled to wait (but, thank Heaven, she has not done so patiently), and the time has now come when it is absolutely ncoessary attention should be paid her. Mr. Glad- stone, in the waning time of his life, has felt this, and, like an honourable man, strives to repair the injury he acknowledges has been done to Ireland Ireland will regain her freedom and prove her equality with the whole world. Home Rule will bring prosperity to Ireland and revive her industries, and will, in some degree, restore her national characteristics. A long system of oppression has stamped out the little interesting traits which exist now only in memory but while an Irishman lives the recollection of what Ireland once was will have its due effect.— I am, &c..

Are we agreed upon them, and are we all satisfied with the affairs of our country as they are at present ? The voice of Wales and Welsh people is unanimous upon one thing or question only, i.e. the question of Disestablishment and Disendowment. We see in the defeat of some of the strongest Church champions that the English constituencies are willing to grant ns, the measure of reform we have so long asked for. Our representatives have had tremendous majorities in all places, and where a Tory has got in it is by a lessened majority. Mr. T. J. Hughes, Bridgend, has suggested a grand demonstration to celebrate the marked victory at the polls in South Wales. Such a demonstration would have some little influence for good if something could be done to concentrate the energies of the people to the attainment of some of the desired objects now in view. I often fear that our representatives do not get the support they require and deserve in their efforts to obtain the desired reforms they are doing their best to secure for us. The new ministry should not be allowed to put off anything that we require with a vague promise to have it settled later on-take for instance, the Places of Worship Enfranchisement Bill of Mr. 8. T. Evans. I think, Sir, that one ought to have a petition sent up from every Chapel, large and small in the country in favour of that Bill, such petitions we think, would be a certain amount of pressure upon the Government. There are other Bills that need the universal support we could give by pro- per and systematic petitioning of the Government. It is an open question whether all who clamour for an improvement of the law of registration are in accord as to the improvement. We hear people say, One man one vote but there are others who say, And every man a vote," in addition. I think, Sir, that we Welsh people should make large demands upon the Government and persist in them. We trust that the same zeal will be shewn by our members in the House as was shown by the three members who so valiently fought against the Church Discipline Bill. Our Welsh members will compare very favourably with the members of any other part of the kingdom as to ability in speaking, thinking, and legislating. If the election was one of the most momentous that has had to be decided. the forthcoming session will be equally so. Let our members make their influence felt in the House it will be very wholesome.—Yours. Porthcawl. VULCAN.
YOUNG WALES IN PARLIAMENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR,—Nothing that I have read in your columns has caused me greater pain thau your leader of last week, in which you say that the Young Wales Party" in Parliament ought to hold themselves aloof from the rest of the Liberal party. If they pursue that policy—which I, for one, do not believe -they will be showing gross ingratitude to the authors of their being. The Liberal party, and especially the G.O.M., have been the men who have made the claims of the minor nationalities of the United Kingdom possible. The G.O.M. is known as the friend of oppressed nationalities all the world over., and has done more than any one single man to strengthen and support ó; Nations rightly struggling to be free."

EX-P.T.. Barry. A SUGGESTION. j TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAE. DEAR SIJV-A few days ago I was at Barry Dock, and was very niueh struck by the number of private houses and business premies st.anding empty, I enquired after the manufacturing in- dustries of the pLace, and found that all of them were comparatively insignificant. This should not be. You at Barry Dock have advantages far superior to many places which have been made famous by the manufacturing industries carried on therein. I have in my mind industries requiring a good supply of coal. easy access to the sea coast for export and import purposes, and I can but marvel that the tradespeople j of Barry Dock have not preferred their claims to some of the large capitalists for their support. I know a comparatively unimportant town where t factories for the manufacture of collars have been [ erected at an outlay of many thousands, and to- j day tho^e factories are employing over five I thousand females alone. I think, Sir, Barry Dock did a very good thiP £ in starting the Cham- j her of Trade, and speaking from personal exper- ieucc.of the president's business capacities, I think the Council are to be congratulated on the choice they made in selecting Mr. D. T. Alexander for their President. The Chamber of Trade include, I pre- sume, most of the business talent of the district, and I would recommend to them the advisability of endeavouring to get some of the large manufac- turers to honour Barry Dock by selecting it to y 11 build manufactories upon. There are many manufacturers who would be glad to utilise the advantages of Barry Dock if only those advantages were put before them in a proper light. I shall await with considerable interest the doings of the Chamber of Trade, and if they take up my sugges- tion I am sure Barry Dock will not lose by it.—I am, See., JOHN HEWS. Cardiff. THE YOUNG MEN OF BARRY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR,—Will you allow me through the medium of your columns to call the attention of the ministers, and those gentlemen who have the wel- fare of the young men at heart to the need of a Young Men's Christian Association for Barry Dock and Cadoxton. I think every one will agree with me that it is of the utmost importance that such an institution should exist. I know several efforts have been, and are being gallantly made by individuals to meet the wants and supply refining influences, notably the Young Wales Society," of which I am pleased to see, Sir, that you are the president; and I.O.G.T. lodges of the district. No doubt, the societies accomplish good but how little can be seen when one counts the drinking clubs and the public-houses always thronged by the young men of the district. In- dividual efforts are practically useless, but if ail the heads of the Christian Churches of the place will consort in one common effort, I have no doubt a Young Men's Christian Association could be formed that would accomplish a splendid work for young men in the place.—I am. &c., Cadoxton.

BRIDGEND LOCAL BOARD. ALLEGED OBSTRUCTIONS INTERESTING DISCUSSION. An ordinary meeting of the Bridgend Local Board was held on Tuesday evening, the chairman (Mr. LI. Wellington) presiding. The others pre- sent were Messrs. M'Gaul, Rich. Lewis, and Francis. —Mr. Stubbs acted as clerk in the absence of Mr. T. J. Hughes. THE NEW OFFICES. Mr. M'Gaul stated that the Building. Paving, and Lighting Committee had inspected two rooms in the Masonic-hall, Adare-street—one was 21ft. by 14ft., with a large recess, and the other was about 12ft. by 9ft. Each room was well lighted, and had a fire-place. There were also the necessary conveniencies, and the rent would be 420 per annum. He suggested that, seeing how few members were present, the further consideration of the matter be deferred, and this was a^re dto. FINANCIAL. It was reported that the balance in the bank was £ 112 lis. 9d. BFFDFLL THE CLERK. The Chairman reported the receipt of a telegram from the Clerk (County Councillor T. J. Hughes), trusting that the Board would forgive his absence at the meeting as he was taking a few days' rest. ALLEGED ENCROACHMENTS. The Surveyor reported that Mr. C. P. Davis had committed an encroachment upon the carriage road leading to the farm occupied by Mr. Rees. Is was also stated that in building a new wall in front of the English Methodist Chapel, Noltoa- road, it was proposed to erect two pillars which would project two inches Oil to the footpath. The Surveyor reported that he had informed Mr. David Jenkins that the pillars must not be built so as to obstruct the path.-The Chairman said that the footpath opposite the English Methodist Chapel in Nolton-street was very narrow, and if the two pillars was erected as proposed they would obstruct the path very much. He told the mason that he had better leave it alone, or see the Surveyor about it.—Mr. McGaul The Surveyor stopped the job.—The Chairman If the Surveyor stopped the job, the man was working at it then.-The Surveyor Well he is working at his own responsibility.—Mr. McGaul said he thought the road upon which it was alleged Mr. C. P. Davis had committed an obstruction was only an accommodation road tothe fields.-The Surveyor The Board insisted upon having it some years age. The Chairman said t at a new road was made by Mr. C. P. Davies which lJ" want d the. public to use, but they would not have an: f'i-.g to do with it, and insisted upon using the preheat road.—Mr. McGaul It was the foot passengers who insisted on it more than the carriage owners.—The Sur- veyor Practically no carriage can pass now.- Z? The Chairman did not think it was right for Mr. C. P. Davis to have done what he had.—Mr. Rich did not think they a< a Board ought to allow that road to be obstructed. especially as it had cost the Board some trouble to ke -p the road open. The owner wanted to make it a private road, and shut it in his green. If th('y allowed thE cart- way to be stopped the footpath would follow. He said do not allow Mr. C. P. Davis to stop the cart- way. They did not know, but that some day that road might be required, and it was only right that the public way should be kept open.—Mr. McGaul said he was merely asking for the opini(n of the Board.—Mr. Rich said that since their predecessors had fought so hard for ir. let them labour to keep it open.—Mr. Lewis said they ought to be very jealous of public rights. There had been much too great an interference with public rights in the town. There were five arches under the old bridge, and two of them were confiscated by private individuals who received rent for them. They actually got rent for public property- a most ridiculous thing. That was the fault of those who were in power at the time. They should be very jealous of public property, and as its custodians they should hand it over to their successors as they received it.—Mr. McGaul If the Board knows that it is a public cart-way.— The Chairman It was fought some years ago.— Mr. Francis said that if it had been proved to be a public way, it did not require, an order from the Board, but any ratepayer could remove the obstruc- tion.—Mr. McGaul There is no interference with the rights of foot-passengers. That is what I mean. I do not see how it can be said that it is the thin end of the wedge, as there is no obstruction at all.—Mr. Rich Oh yes. there is.—The Chairman Mr. Recs, who is the tenant ef the farm, brings his cart ttp twice a year. —Mr. McGaul Well, let him bring up his cart nt once. If it is only for the V>tn.^fit of Mr. Rees let hundo it.— Mr. Lewis We are custodians of public property. It is not for Mr. Rees to fight with Mr. Da.vi".—Th.} Chairman said the matter should be dealt with at once.—Ultimately it was decided that the matter be loft in the hands of the Building, Paviiig, and Lighting Committee.-The Board ex- pressed its approval at the action of the Surveyor with reference to the proposed obstruction at the English Methodist Chapel. THE CHMETEUY QUESTION. Mr. McGaul asked what was being done in the matt er of acquiring land fQr the cemetery, and said that unless something was speedily done they would have winter upon them. He suggested that the Clerk be requested to expediate matters as much as possible.—The suggestion was adopted.
