'be composed of men who are in touch with Radical demands, and 14 love what they know." We have had enough of men who are Liberals ,only because their fathers were so, or because they look uponpolitica as a game and the Liberal card the safest card to play. We must have Tmen who are Liberals by conviction, men who know and feel the inequalities and injustices that still exist in our politic-il and socia) systems, men who are thorough reformers at tieart, plain russet-coated men and not gentle- men of plush. The Tories, and some weak-kneed Liberals and such Whigs of little faith that have not yet left us, say that Home Rule must be 11 hung up." When we hear such rumours we thank heaven that we have a man of courage and of honour at the head of the Liberal party. Mr. whatever may be his faults, has cever proved false to his word, and by every principle of honour and good faith he is pledged, as far as words can pledge any man, to bring in a Home Rule Bill. If Mr. GLADSTONE does not wish to be discredited for ever, and if the Liberal party ever wish to command the confidence of the country, a wise iind generous measure of Home Rule will have to be introduced in the first days of the Session whioh will satisfy the national aspirations of Ireland, and which will be" acceptable to the Liberal members of Great Britain. It is mero idle babble to talk of hanging up Home
8AD DROWNING FATALITY AT BARRY DOCK. NARRATIVES? THE SURVIVOR. STRANGE CONDUCT OF A SHIP'S CREW. On Thursday morning a sad drowning fatality took place at Rarry Dock. From the information gathered, it would appear that at. 6.30 a..m. a pilot named Evans, of the "Lizzie," accompanied by two young boatmen named Wm. Guffy and — Ainslie, went out from the d-ock to a sailing vessel lying in the røads called the" Este," frem. Hamburg. The pilot went on board, and. the yomng boatmen turned to bring the boat back to the Docks. When about three hundred yards from the- Este, a heavy wave overtook the beat, swamping it. What took place afterwards may best be gathered from the narrative of William Guffy, who was interviewed by a ST AR reporter after the occurrence. William Guffy said that on Thursday morning, at 6.30, in company with Ainslie and the pilat, he left Barry Dock and went out to the barque Este, from Hamburg, which was waiting to come into the Dock. They put the pilot on the ship, and were returning to the Dock, and when about 300 yards off a heavy wave overturned the boat. Guffy and Ainslie both managed to get on the boat which was upside down. They stayed there for a little while, until Ainslie, presumably tired of the position, swam for the oars, which were floating about a short dis- tance away. He managed to get the oars under his arms and kept afloat for a little time. Sud- denly the boat to which Guffy was clinging again overturned, and when he came up again he could not see Ainslie anywhere, but saw the oars still floating about. Witness managed to retain his hold of the boat for a little time, until feelitg unable to hold on any longer wa .tnd s about to let go in despair, for although within 300 yards of the ship no one made any efforts to lower a boat, when a small dandy or trawl, the Julia of Bridgwater, came by and with renewed energy he managed to keep his hold on the boat until the men in the Julia came to his rescue. He could see nothing of;Ainslie anywhere, and there can be but little doubt that he was un- able to hold to the oars any longer and was drowned. The deceased was a married man with a wife and family of four children, and he was much re- spected by his mates. Mueh sympathy is felt on all sides tor the bereaved widow and children. I ——————

Mr. Walter Smythe- Olerthyr) then proposed "The Barry Chamber of Trade." Some few weeks ago, he said, his friend, Mr. Alexander, had written to him to say that the peopHe of Barry were in, a great strait. They wished to start a Chamber of Trade, but were afraid to try. (Laughter.) They wanted more light and more knowledge how to proceed, so he and the two friends on his right (Mr. Tom John and Mr. Richard Lewis) had come down to Barry as missionaries. (Laughter). He supposed that it was that as they lived in a Mghel atmosphere, they derived from that a better, in- spiration, and that the material light in which they lived cast an inner and a mental light which was not so marked elsewhere. (Renewed laughter), He (the speaker) and his two friends had come and addressed them on the formation of the Chamber. He considered it a great comp)iment that they had been asked to come down for that purpose, and it gave them the livliest satisfaction to see by the large gathering they saw in that hall that their efforts had been attended with so much success. (Hear. hear). He thought a Chamber of Trade, and especially an outing such as they had that day, was the best thing possible for a district. It helped to unite the inhabitants. and to upset and destroy that which was the curse of many districts in the kingdom, Snobocracy. (Loud cheers). He believed also that the establishment of a Chamber of Trade would be of much material benefit to the district. By united and concerted action much could be effected. If isolated they could do little or nothing; united they could do almost anything. (Loud applause.) He had much pleasure in proposing" The Barry Chamber of Trade." After the toast had been enthusiastically drunk, 1tlr. Lewis Lewis rose to respond. He thanked Mr. Smythe. he said, for all he had done for the Chamber, and for the kind way in which he had proposed the toast. He objected to one thing, however. in Mr. Smythe's speech. He (the speaker) thought that the Barry district was as civilised as any other part of South Wales, and they did not require missionaries (laughter)- and :ijarry was probably more enter- prising than any other nook in the Prin- cipality. (Laughter and cheers.)

CAUTION TO GROCERS. From time to time our attention has been drawn to several impudent attempts at obtaining money from local tradesmen by sharp practice, and we wish to warn our readers against being taken in by the swindling travellers of bogus firms. The latest novelty in the line passes himself off as the representative of a firm of tobacconists, and offers advantageous terms for cigarettes and other tobaccos with euphonious names. The price for the cigarettes themselves is rather high, but the glig-tongued traveller promises a compensation in the shape of exceptional advantages. One poor woman in Barry-road, who has only just taken to business. was persuaded to spend e4 on perfectly wretched stuff on the promise of an automatic cigarette machine which would be placed outside her door, and which would make her fortune. The k4, the traveller, the automatic machine, and the fortune have never since been seen or heard of. Another was promised enough paper bags (on which there would be an advertisement of the cigarettes with the euphonious name) for nothing. Another was promised a liberal price for allowing a card with an advertisement of the cigarette with the Euphonious name to be placed in a good corner of the shop. One of the hoaxed, however, became suspicious, and followed the traveller to Cardiff. There she found him, but he, of course, refused to return the money alleging that it had been sent up to the London office, and that the goods would be sent at once. The cigarettes have been delivered, some have been smoked, and could be smelt half a mile away. But the other promises have not, and in all likelihood will not, be carried out. The Car- diff police are 011 the track, and say that they know the interesting traveller, who has not, hew- ever, made his appearance in this locality for the last two years.
Some men are never happy unless. they have a grievance. These men were happy at the dinner at Ilfracombe, for Mr. Alexander jokingly promised everybody abundance of Devonshire cream, but the cream never appeared. They didn't know it was was only the chairman's little joke. An Irishman in the party said, That cream has rankled in my bosom ever since, because I didn't sret it." At the Oddfellow's dinner on Monday Mr. Ivans said the water supply of the Cadoxton Water Company was a very poor one. The doctors," he said, had condemned all the good water aroand the place," and he was going still further when Dr. O'Donnell, who sat near Mr. Ivans, politically changed the course of the conversation by rising and proposing a toast. The artful doctor :I< We are pleased to note that our well-known townsman-Mr. Will Douglas-bas been nomi- nated for the post of hon. secretary to the cele- brated Cardiff Football Club. Suffice it to state that in him the club will possess a most valuable hon. sec. should he be appointed at the ballot. He has also heen selected as one of the members of the General Committee. ok The Burial Board on Tuesday expressed the sense of the solemnity of the work they were about to undertake. Several piously remarked that the proposed chapel would be a memorial of the present Board years after the members of the Board have turned their toes up to the daisies. We presume the Board to mean the chapel to be a memorial of the great )-usiness capacities displayed by some of the members. Are you supposed to wait asked a doctor of one of the Ilfracombe waiters with his most tru- culent sneer. "I partly wait," was the calm answer. "I wait altogether," said the doctor. The editor of a. local paper then tried it on with another. Are you supposed to wait he asked a sanctimonious-looking individual. "Yes I. be," Then, why don't you?" I am and I'll wait as long as yon please." There wasn't much" pairing" at the Wednesday outing to Ilfracombe. A prominent Barry Tory mated wilih the daughter of a well known Liberal the most inveterate bachelor of Cadoxton was captured by a local beauty when the mother was hot-t cnmbnt and the nicest of all the couples came from Cadoxton. and started for it drive in a victoria, but turned back as so many nasty married people were grinning at them. Certain visitors staying at the Runnacleave Hotel were admitted to one of the Hall Galleries in order to see the Barryites feed. They were greatly disappointed when they found it was such an orderly crowd, and when Mr. Lewis Lewis said that Barry was as civilised as any place in the world they "skidaddled" in disgust. They had come to see barbarians, but they saw instead the best-looking, best-dressed, best-mannered crowd that ever visited Ilfracombe >It Mr. Pardoe has, it seems, copied Major General Lee's example, and has shrouded the scene of his leisure with mystery. Our worthy surveyer is reported, we are pleased to s:iy, to be enjoying his holiday immensely. It is generally rumoured that he is deeply engage-i in astronomical studies. The Lighting Committee has not yet succeeded in re- ducing the moon to order, for the lunar luminary will perversely hide her light when the gas lamps are put out. Mr. Pardoe is determined to land the committee out of the difficulty. A rather amusing incident occurred at the meet- ing of the Burial Board on Tuesday. Rev. J. Price was ad vocating the use of Bath stone for the proposed cemetery chapel at Merthyrdovan. Canon Allen, who sat next to Mr. Price. remarked upon the condition of the Bath stone facings of the Old parish church of Barry. Resaid thefadngs were showing signs of decay but Mr. Price misunder- stood him and turned to Mr. R. S. Robinson, and in rather a triumphant tone, spoke of the evidence of Canon Allen as ending to show the durability of the Bath s.one. He collapsed, though, when Canon Allen quietly said the stone was decaying not lasting. < The members of the Board who drove round to inspect and report on the most desirable site of the proposed new hospital were Major-General Lee, Dr. O'Donnell, Mr. Thomas (The Hayes), Mr. Benjamin Lewis, Dr. Neile, and Mr. Alderman Meggitt. The start of the conveyance from the Board Offices brought very forcibly to the minds of the onlookers Cowper's story of "John Gilpins' Ride :"— Crack went the whip, round went the wheels, Were ever folks 80 glarf The stonefi did rattle underneath As if Cheauside were mad. Perhaps the jolting the party had experience over the rough newly-laid stones in aomt) of the public thoroughfares will lead them in common pity of the rest of the inhabitants to lend new vigour to the doings of the steam roller. An amusing episode occurred at Holton on Friday evening last, the centre of attraction being a street "galley," or restaurant. A distraint had been effected upon the occupier of the above, and a local bailiff was placed in possession. On this evening the services of oiir Ideal i)fr. 0 yes, 0 f yes. armed with his bell, and of a well-known auctioneer-the former to announce the sale and the other todiapose of the contents of the cookshop by publier alletioll__IIL, d. it lar,e .td beea secure crowd of would-be buyers assembled outside, and upon the knight of the hammer making his appearance he- found, to. his amazement, that he wasunabletogainadmission, and that the lady had the local bailiff a prisoner inside. The police ulti- matelycameuponthe scene, but did: not improve matters, as she was "not taking any," and showed how jubilant she was by placing, the tip of her thumb to her proboscis in defiance of the gents in blue. This occupied the space of a few hours, and in the final scene our genial inspector was reqtiisitioned to release the imprisoned btiliff from the lady's clutches. This little pantomime caused much amusement to those congregated outside, but sorrow was expreRsedi on all hands that the wily auctioneer had unfortunately been thrown out of a Job.. < w COSMOPOLITAN writes us- in. the following strain The root of all evil (according to dis- tingnisbed authorities) appeared to be in great abundance at one of our principal hotels a few evenings ago. A few representatives of the press, rent bailiffs, bakers, butchers, &c., were quiffing the sweet brown draught in a right 4 royal' fashion After a quantity of small I Bass" had disappeared the general conversation became somewhat lively, a well-known figure startling the assembly by declaring that he could carry on his back fi. ve cwt.
