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.)
