BARRY AND CADOXTON BURIAL BOARD. A special meeting of the above Board was held at the Chairman's house. Barry, on Tuesday even- ing last to consider the contract-agreement for the erection of the new chapel at Merthyrdovan Ceme- tery. The members present were Mr. J. Robinson (in the chair), Revs. Canon Allen and J. Price, Mr. William Thomas (auctioneer), Mr. J. Brock, Mr. B. G. Davies, and Mr. J. A. Hughes (clerk). With a few slight alterations the agreement, as read by the Clerk, was agreed to. The time of erection is not to exceed nine months, unless delayed by some cause over which the builder has no control, such as strikes or inclement weather.—Mr. Brock thought nine months too long a. time to be dangling over it, but the Chairman pointed out that it would not be advisable to give the contractor too short a time to do the work or it was certain it would not be as well done as they would like. At the con- clusion of the reading the Chairman said he had spoken to the contractor, and he expressed his willingness to face the chapel with Pennant stone without any extra charge. All the work of dress- ing, and all work except the getting of the Bath and Pennant stone will be done in the locality. The foundation 01 the chapel will be formed of concrete, which in the opinion of the members is more suitable to its position. A question arose whether funerals would be allowed to take place on Sunday, and the Clerk stated it was only in cases of suecial urgency that that would be allow- able. That matter was always left to his discretion. —Canon Allen said no minister was compelled to attend a funeral on Sunday.—Referring to the erection of the chapel, the Clerk stated the agree- ment would be signed on Wednesday, and the contractor would be advised to commence work at once.—This was all the business.
