BARRY AND CADOXTON BURIAL…
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.

The Committee are also pre- pared to form clashes in any subject included in the Science and Art Directory, provided I that a sufficient number of students enrol them selves,, so as to secure a fair remunerationn to the teacher. The charges will be 5s. per subject, but half of the fee will be returned to every student presenting him or herself at the examination. £ 55 was re- ceived from the County Council for attendance, and the local expenses of 4.25 were also paid by the Council. Parliamentary Grants are expected to amount to about C 50. Cookery classes are also frrmed, which are well attended. Great credit is due to the local committee for the exceptionally good results obtained, and the Secretary, Mr. M. D. Price, ought to be specially complimented for his indefatigable services.
I CORRESPONDENCE. THE FEDERATION AXD THE SHIPPING OF SAILORS AT BARRY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "SOUTH WALES STAR." SIR,-—Certain faces having come under my notice in reference to the engagement of a crew i of a vessel named the John Ena, of Honolulu, allow me, through the medium of your valuable columns, to ask the Shipping Federation (Limited") whether it is correct that such crew were signed by one of their prominent officials at night in a boarding lious? at Barry Dock, without the presence of a Board of Trade officer, notwithstand- ing the fact of the vessel having the British Jack in the corner of her ensign Also whether they are aware that it is reported that such official charged the sum of L')S. to men directly supplied by him to such ship, and £1 to others who were supplied by boarding masters, as shipping fees —a polite chrase for blood i-Loney Also whether it is correct that a seaman was declined employment in the said ship, after signing articles, because he objected to pay this official the sum of £ 1 as shipping fees for the chance of obtaining such employment.' I would also ask the Shipping Federation whether certain board- ing masters in their employ received instructions to steal men from other boarding- houses in Cardiff to supply the said ship, knowing full well the men were considerably indebted where they had been staying Also, why the master of the John Ena, together with their official, could only produce thirteen seamen out of a possible sixteen at the time of sailing Upon an inspection of his crew being requested, a certain part of the house 011 deck being locked, the officers refusing to open same. If the Federation officials are able to give a satisfactory reply to the above queries, I trust they will at once do so, in order to convince the public, if possible, that they are the saints they profess to be in place of being em- ployed for the purpose of not only robbing seamen by reducing their wages, but extracting blood money from their earnings after such reduction j is enforced. I may state that one month and a half's advance at £ 3 5s. per month was given, amounting co t4 17s. 6d.. yet the amount of the mens notes was only £ 3 17s. 6d., it being, of course, understood as regards th^ remaining £ 1. Yet this is applauded as a free country." and faddists cry out Britons never shall be slaves." Trusting you will give this insertion in the in- terests of justice.—I am. &c., J. HARRISOX. Sailors' and Firemen's Union, Barry Dock. P.S. — Upon application being made to the superintendent of the Board of Trade, I am in- formed he had no jurisdiction in the matter. LLEW LLWYFO. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR.—In common with my countrymen I felt a pang of sorrow when I read" last week that the ibove great man is at a financial low ebb. He had no right be in the workhouse sufficient patronage has been conferred upon him to have made him independent. But alas he is now dependent upon charity, and chanty in its most terrible and degra- ding form. Cannot something be done to "get Llew from the workhouse could not some patriotic Welsh Statesmen apply and secure a grant of money from the public purse for our able countryman! One measure could be adopted at once. viz., that some of the many loyal and patriotic Welshmen northwards should put themselves in communication one with another to have Llew removed at once. Let them secure him decent lodgings and board we have sympathy sufficient for this lying dormant in Wales yet. I have known him as a public entertainer for the past 30 years, a good writer, a sweet singer, a power- ful speaker, an excellent all-round man for public work. Wales owes him much, and it will be a national disgrace to allow this erratic son of genius to pine away in the poor man's hell. If a good working committee took the case in their own hands, and formulated some scheme to succour this poor man. they would be well supported. I'll guarantee a few sovereigns to that purpose, on one condition only, viz., that the committee administer whatever funds they may gather themselves. Now is the time at once, lest he should die in that accursed spot. I am not going to hold him up to } public ridicule. He has his faults, but the love of money is not one of them. Wishing speedy action, —I am, fcc., VULCAN. Porthcawl, August 22. i BARRY DOCK AND BURNHAM REGATTAS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. Sift—"Will you allow me a short space in your valuable paper on the above I observe that out of the many pilots who hold a Barrv license, only one entered, viz.. Mr. Woodward, with his excellent little boat '• Excel," and I think he may well be be proud of her after her creditable behaviour 011 Wednesday, against the yacht Bride," of New- port. But what I wish to point out is this I noticed more than one Newport and Barry pilot boat at Barry 011 the day of the reg-atta with their flags flying, but on looking at the programme found that none of them had entered, and when it is taken into consideration that such a great racing man as Mr. Davies. of the li J. K. Knapp fame was there, with his fast boat in the Basin flying his flags to rrake a show on his own account, and leaving it to others who were outsiders. as far as Barry Dock is concerned, to give the spectators a day's sport, it seems almost incredible to me, and I think the onlookers are greatly indebted to Messrs. Phillips. Tucker. Francis, and Richards for entering their boats for this occasion, knowing at the same time they were standing a chance of, perhaps, losing a good ship. Now, Sir. the least thing Mr. Davies could have done was to have entered and run his boat, especially as he derives great benefit from the Barry Dock, when the outsiders I have mentioned do not derive a single penny from it, but. on the contrary, are losing by it. But I do not wish to blame Mr. Davies more than the rest. I only mention his name, as he he better known to the racing public than the others. Now we can plainly see how far some people's sporting pro- pensities will carry them. They may certainly have been afraid of the Bride with her immense ray of canvas, but still they would have had the same chance as the others. So much for Barry. Now I must say that there was very great dis- appointment felt by all who went to Burnham Regatta on Thursday, at the non-appearance of the Bride. This was a race under different rules. For while the Barry allowed any sail, with the exception of racing mainsail, the Burnham allowed any sails without exception, and I, among others with whom I have been speaking, am of the opinion that if the Bride had turned up the Excel would have given her such a doing as would never be forgotten by those who saw and took part in it, and yet the Newport folks are gloating over their Barry victory. But I claim that it is a victory without credit, as the sails of the Bride were those of a yatch, while the others had sails, of a real pilot cutter. What I should like to see is for the Newport and Cardiff public to pick out their fancy boat and dress her free of cost to the owners, and subscribe also a decent some of money as a prize, and we shall soon see the sailing qualities of the ports. I hope this matter will not be allowed to drop, but that some- one will take the initiative in it and lead it to a successful issue. Thanking you in anticipation. I am. &c., A FRIEXD OF PILOTS. Cardiff, Aug. 23rd, 1892.

The whole arrangements went off without a hitch, and reflect the greatest credit on the energetic and capable secretary. Mr. J. B. Mockford. In one in- stance only was there no entry at all, and in most the competition was very keen. An enormous crowd of people paid for admission, and the s!»o\v. there seems no doubt, was a financial success. Mr. Gay, of the Glamorganshire Beekeepers's Associa- tion, was present, and gave practical demonstra- tions and advice on bee culture. Refreshments were provided on the ground by the Misses Harry, of Harry's Temperance Hotel and Restaur- ant, Barry Dock, their efforts at catering for the large number of visitors being most successful.

Mr. Norton, Mr. Ralph Crossling, General Lee, Mr. F. Case, and Mr. Treseder. Mr. D. T. Alexander placed the beautiful grounds of Bryn- eithin at the disposal of the committee, and kept open house during the day. "Ap Pearce, of Treherbert, played several Welsh airs on the harp, and sang topical songs which delighted the com- pany. The services of the Barry Male Voice Party bad also been secured by Mr. Alexander, and the Welsh glees snag by them were quite one of the features of the day. The conductor, Mr. D. Farr. added to the enjoyment by singing" Pe Cawn i hon." and other Welsh airs. At <30 p.m. the marquee was filled to overflow- ing with a large crowd to witness the distribution of the prises for the best stocked allotments and gardens.—Miss Lee gave away the prizes. After the distribution. Major-General Lee, who was received with loud cheers, said that they could justly be congratu- lated on the very great success 01 the show that day. (Hear, hear.) They had been most fortunate in having a fine day, notwithstanding the fact that a celebrated fair was being held just at that time in the neighbourhood, which was said always to bring down rain. (Laughter.) He congratulated the ,:7 committee, not only on the success of the show that day, but also in the institution of something which he trusted would follow year after year, and keep on improving and giving greater interest to those who wished to have some out-of-door em- ployment when their day's work was done. (Hear, hear.) The cleverest and most revered of thorough English statesmen had recently presided over a similar gathering in his own park. and he (the speaker) only wished he had one-millionth part of Mr. Gladstone's eloquence to say what he would like to say to them. He thought the institution of such a society was of very great use, as it pro- vided them with a pleasant and healthy employ- ment, and helped to keep a working man still out of doors at the day's end. (Hear, hear.) The cultivation cottage and allotment gardens was a very good thing, as it made life more bearable for all. All such institutions were educational efforts to give something wholesome to the people to do. and to enlist thorough interest and attention. (Applause.) He (the speaker) thought they would all admit the judg- ing was extremely good. (Hear, hear.) Of course, they could not all get prizes, and he would say a word or two to those who were not prize-winners. The next best thing to winning a prize oneself was to have the courage and the good temper to congratulate those who had wen. (Loud cheers.) He (General Lee) wished also, on behalf of the committee, to thank those who had sent those beautiful flovrers which had helped to give such a lovely appearance to the show, especially Mrs. Jenner, Miss Rous, and Mr. Alexander. He wished also to thank Mr. Alexander for his great kindness in letting the committee have the use of his grounds, and for arranging and managing the show so well. (Loud cheers.) He also wished to thank the committee for the excellent arrange- ments throughout, which must have been the result of great care and work. He had been told mat tne commit-ee nan commenced to carry things y I into the tent at five o'clock that morning, and had been hard at it till just before the time for opening the show. He would take the liberty to couple with the vote of thanks the name of Mr. Mockford. their indefatigable secretary. (Loud applause.) They all knew Mr. Mockford, and they all went to him whenever they wanted somebody to do some really hard work. (Laughter and cheers.) Mr. Lockyer. of Pontypool Park,one of the judges, was then asked to. say a few words. Mr. Lockyer said that he had been pleasantly surprised. He had been told that after making the awards known he ought to take the first train home. (Laughter.) However, he had not done so, and his life was still perfectly safe. (Renewed laughter.) He must compliment the committee on the excellent way in which the show had been conducted. (Hear, hear.) He would, however, make one suggestion as to the cropping of their gardens and allotments. The cottagers at present seemed to relv on potatoes alone; they should make better provision for the late season by growing more winter vegetables, Of course, this was their first show, and possibly it had taken most of them by surprise. As it was. they had had a very good start for a young society. and he had visited many shows that year which were far inferior. If the enthusiasm which had been manifested that day was maintained, they would have a great future before them. (Ap- plause.) He wished them, in conclusion, every success. (Loud applause.) Mr. D. T. Alexander proposed a vote of thanks to the "Judges." He felt quite sure that the Judges had done their very best, and bad acted in the fairest and most impartial manner. (Hear, hear.) He thought they should be well satisfied with that, their first result. He had been especially pleased with the show of vegetables and the collection of wild flowers. There was no more pleasant employment, and he hoped that there would be still larger collections and a better show next year than this. (Hear, hear.) He wished also to thank Miss Lee for kindly coming forward to distribute the prizes. (Hear, hear.) For himself, he was glad to put the grounds at their disposal. He thought the more they came into personal contact with one another the better it would be for all of them. (Hear, hear.) For his own part, he never was more happy than when he had his friends and neighbours around him. He would only be too glad to place the grounds at their disposal as long as the people behaved with orderliness. (Loud cheers.) He was very pleased to testify to the kindness and liberality with which subscriptions had flowed in, and he trusted that by next year the prize list would be greatly augmented and the prizes them- selves increased in value. (Loud applause.) Mr. Mockford, who was very heartily received, seconded the vote of thanks to the judges, and said that he had never spent a better day than last Monday, when he had attended the judges to see the gardens and allotments. General Lee had spoken much too flatteringly of his work—(" No, no ")-and he (the speaker) wished to thank every member of the committee for the very energetic way in which they had helped him. (Applause.) Miss Lee thanked them very much for coupling her name with the vote of thanks, but she had done so little that she did not deserve any thanks (" Yes you do, miss," and loud cheers.) Mr. W. R. Parker proposed a hearty vote of thanks to "Our Gallant General," and General Lee, in responding, said that no share of the credit was due to him. for he had done nothing. (Laughter.) He was in a similar position to a relative of his in India from whom he had heard that week. His relative had lately received considerable honour at the hands of the Queen, and in his letter he said, You'll be sur- prised to hear that I have received this honour. I don't think I deserve it, and many people will say I don't deserve it. But I accept it all the same." (Laughter.) In the same way he (General Lee) did not deserve the honour, but he accepted it with thanks all the same. (Laughter and cheers.) The company then separated, and dancing, kiss- in-the-ring and other games presently commenced, and continued till nightfall, the crowd finally leaving about nine o'clock. AT THE FLOWER SHOW. [BY MR. GAD-AHOUT.] I had received such a very pressing and flatter- ing invitation from Mr. Mockford, the secretary, last week, that I felt bound to go to Dinas Powis on Wednesday. I went early, for fear the show couldn't get on without me—and I heard there was a very good lunch provided. And so there was Mr. Mockford was about the first man I met. He didn't know me, but he saw I was a stranger within his gates, and he took me in-inside the committee's tent. We discussed the weather and cognate subjects there over a ginger beer for a good half-hour. I then went to see the show, which was held in a large marquee a little higher up the field. The sight I saw was a gorgeous one. The whole place was ablaze with wild and tame flowers, with geraniums, and orchids, and roses, and potatoes, and beans. Some were exhibited for prizes and some for show and they all looked as if they came from Paradise. There was some delicious fruit exhibited at the far end of the marquee. I believe they were the genuine article at all events, they smelt as if they were. I didn't get a chance to taste any, as there were too many people about. After "doing" the show, I heard the familiar strains of Hen wlad fy nliadau," and on enquiry I found that Mr. Alexander had prepared a pleasant little surprise for us. He had engaged the Barry Male Voice Party for the day to sing to the harp accompaniment of Ap Pearce." Besides the party's glees we had songs from Mr. Farr, and some very funny Shorn Hoi sonjs from 11 Ap Pearce." His song, The Rhondda M.P. was a treat and no mistake. I saw the ex- Sage of Palmerstown positively beaming with delight over Mr. Barstow's white straw hat. Some of the more active persons played tennis till a local limb of the law came into violent con- tact with the wire netting. Needless to say the netting stood as little chance against him as a policeman in a witness box. >Jot I them met an old friend of mine—a member of our local police force. He told me a funny story. There was a publican and a beer barrel in it. The publican s wife was not in it, for she was away from home. -r- I must also thank here Mr. and Mrs. Alexander for the grand way in which they entertained a poor lorn wayfarer. In wishing them long life and many years of happiness I am only echoing the expressions of good-will that were floating thickly around Bryneithen after that lovely tea and delicious rock-cakes and other sweet dainties with which we were regaled. :): After tea some of the prizes were distributed by Miss Lee. I need not say that the value of the prizes was very much enhanced by the fact that they were given away by Miss Lee and when the prize winner happened to be absent, as was fre- quently the case. there was quite a rush of volun- teers to act as substitutes, and to receive the card and Miss Lee's Kindly smile. By-the-bye, Miss Lee's little speech in response to a vote of thanks was a gem. There will no longer be an opponent to Women's Suffrage after that in Dinas Powis. A I have said it several times before, but I must say it again.: I do like General Lee so much. He is always so kind and so easily interested quite a Roger de Coverley without his eccentricities. =:: Between everything the feelings of the crowd at the distribution of the prizes were so overcharged that they could only find relief in singing For they are jolly good fellows to the accompani- ment of a. Welsh harp. Mr. Alexander deserves every body's best thanks for giving the ground, and for promising the ground, if necessary, for next year. I was very glad to see such an orderly crowd there very few, if any, took a mean advantage of Mr. Alexander's kindness. # jfc I only wish I oc..Id describe the ladies dresses. But I am only a poor male creature, who knows no difference between puice and heliotrope, and so I dare not discuss the arcana sacred only to t'other sex. I only know they all looked like butterflies flitting about from flower to flower, or Peris that had been tempted by the loveliness of the day from Paradise. V :k [ only remembar one "goak" that I heard. There were pots of honey exhibited in the show tied with a band of blue ribbon. A Barry Dock man, on seeing this, was heard to exclaim, Dear me! Here's Honey with his badge." (With apologies to the respacted pastor of the Bible Christians.) We are getting quite great at enjoying our Wed- nesdays. The other day at Ilfracombe, last week at the Regatta, and this week at the Flower Show This whirl of gaiety is almost too much, How- ever, as long as I meet wish such kindness as I had at Dinas Powis. I'm game for anything. I con- gmtulate the committee and Mr. Mockford on their great success.

THEFT OF MONEY.—Mr. W. B. Venn, an old man, was charged by Police-constable David with stealing a purse containing 30s. from a house in Cadoxton where he waS staying.

The Chairman said the case had been dealt with, and she must summon him again before they could interfere. The woman said she had no money to pay for a second sum- mons, and the magistrates, considering she had paid for one, granted her a free summons, to be r called on at Barry Dock on the following Thursday.
CRUSHED TO DEATH AT PENARTH…
CRUSHED TO DEATH AT PENARTH DOCK. < An inquest was held on Tuesday morning by Mr. LI. G rover, deputy coroner, in the Penarth Police- court. on the body of David Jones, aged six years, son of Benjamin Jones, berthing man, in Penarth Dock.-Francis James, 28, John-street, a messenger on the T.V.R., said he was walking alongside the trucks when he saw a boy between the wheels and two trucks pass over him. He called the guard, who, after the train stopped, pulled him from underneath. John Cook, guard on the T.V.R., said that James stopped, and said. Whoa, Jack, you've run over a boy." Witness went to the spot where the boy was, and got him out. He died immediately afterwards. The jury returned a verdict that deceased met his death from pure accident, and that no blame was attached to anyone.
It is observed'that the Princess of Wales and her daughters, who have been on a visit to the Queen, have given up their very deep mourning for the Duke of Clarence, the prevailing hue of the young Princesses' dresses being white or grey. This is sensible. The depth of sorrow for the lost is not indicated by the continual wearing of sombre garments. |
BLASTING ACCIDENT AT CADOXTON.
BLASTING ACCIDENT AT CADOXTON. GREAT DAMAGE DONE. THE LOCAL BOARD AGAIN. A serious blasting accident occurred on Wednesday at Barry-road, Cadoxton. It appears that some workmen employed by the Local Board at the quarry at the bottom of Barry-road to procuae stones for the roads in the district. On Wednes- day afternoon, while engaged in blasting some rock. an accident occurred either through an over- charge or some other cause. In any case about 2.30 p.m. a piece of rock was blasted with such force as to inflict very great damage on the pre- mises on the opposite side of the road. The window in Mr. D. Griffiths' premises, of the value of C8, was broken, as well as the windows of Mr. Jeremiah, the butcher. The plateglass window of Mr. Below, Laircutter, was also smashed, and hugh pieces of stone were hurled with such violence through his upstair windows as to reach the beds at the other end of the room. Though the workmen are em- ployed by the Local Board, the Board, it seems, is not liable for the damage done, as the men are paid so much for every yard of stone. The injured parties say that they cannot proceed against the workmen, and that they are therefore in want of a remedy. It is freely urged that the Local Board is greatly to blame in not using a chain net such as is usually used by Local Boards and Corporations when blasting operations are being conducted. The present system is not only dangerous to adjoining premises, but retards business by compelling busy travellers to wait sometimes for several minutes till a charge has exploded. If by any chance an excessive charge is used, the danger is great, not only to property, but to life. On Wednesday one of the masons employed at a neighbouring house, being warned that a charge was being let off. sought refuge under the scaffold- ing, but the stones were hurled with such force that, though he stood some 30 or 40 yards away, he was rendered insensible by the force of a blow he received. It may be remembered that last year another serious blasting accident occurred at nearly identically the same place. It is hoped that the Lcoal Board will take immediate steps to prevent the recurrence of these dangerous accidents. It is felt that such a perilous thing as using dynamite or powder near a public highway should not be left uncontrolled or unprotected in the hands of possibly careless, and probably ignorant, men.
THE PENARTH DROWNINGj CASE.…
THE PENARTH DROWNING CASE. THE INQUEST. On Saturday at Penarth Police-station an in- quest was held (before Mr. Grover, deputy- coroner) touching the death of Thomas Royce, a rigger, aged 45 years, belonging to Barry, who was drowned between Cardiff and Barry on the 6th inst. Police-constable Eghen deposed to having taken charge of the bodyt at about seven p.m. on Thurs- day last on the promenade at Penarth. Witness saw a boat towing something, which proved to be the body of a drowned man, found by two young men from Aberdare, who were visiting Penarth. They had that evening hired a boat, and when cruising- towards Lavernock found the body floating in the water, and brought it to the Penarth Beach. In searching the body at the mortuary a purse containing 12s. 6d. with three keys, a whistle, handkerchief, and pencilcase were found in his pockets. George David, of 33, Richards-street. Barry Dock, employed as a fireman by the Barry Dock Company, identified the body. He had lodged with the deceased, and had last seen him alive on the morning of the 6th inst., between six and seven o'clock, and subsequently when accompanied by his sister-in-law, Emma Davies, he left Cardiff in a boat the same evening. Superintendent O'Gorman, of the Cardiff Docks Police, stated that a little after seven p.m. on the 6th inst. he saw a man in company with a young woman leave the pontoon bridge, Cardiff, in a boat, which had a mainsail set and was reefed, appearing to be properly handled. Witness watched it pass through the gut. He had seen the body, and was perfectly satisfied that deceased was the man who left the docks. The jury returned a verdict Found drowned," and consider that the woman Emma Davies has not yet been found.
ANOTHER BURGLARY AT ! BARRY…
ANOTHER BURGLARY AT BARRY DOCK. THE BOARD OF TRADE OFFICES PILLAGED. On Friday night Barry Dock was the scene of another daring burglary, and in the present in- stance again it is probable the guilty parties were disturbed while carrying out their depredations. The burglars gained access to the Board of Trade offices by breaking a panel of one of the doors and forcing themselves inside. The different rooms in the offices were ransacked, and a cash-box had been forcibly opened by breaking the lock, but. fortu- nately, the previous day's takings had been safely removed before the staff left the previous evening. The safe in the Superintendent's office, strange to say, was untouched, and it is believed the thieves were disturbed before they had time to attempt to force open the safe. The police are doing all in their power to work up the affair. and it is hoped in the interests of safety of property, that the authors of these periodical robberies at Barry Dock will be discovered. Great excitement has been caused in the district by these continued attempts at burglary, and the action of the magistrates some time ago in fining instead of imprisoning one who was found guilty of burgling" Mr. Xew- man's premises at Barry is much commented upon. It is said that the imposition of a light fine ha? put a premium on attempts at burglary, by enabling a robber to commit a burglary with impunity for 10s.

INTERESTING PRESENTATION AT PONTYPRIDD, On Saturday last, after the annual inspection of the 3rd V.B. Welsh Regiment at Treforest, the Pontypridd Cyclist Section assembled at the County Hotel for the purpose of making a presen- tation to Sergeant J. A. Thomas upon the occasion of his recent marriage to Miss C. L. McMurray.

The proceedings were interspersed with music, &c., and a thoroughly enjoyable evening was spent.
LOSS OF A BARRY-LADEN STEAMER,
LOSS OF A BARRY-LADEN STEAMER, WRECKED ON SKOlvHOLM ISLAND The s.s. Prospero left Barry Dock on Sunday on the morning tide, bound for Workington with a cargo of coke and made a smart passage down channel during the forenoon, reaching the neigh- bourhood of Milford Haven about mid day. Here she ran into a dense fog, which prevailed for more than an hour, preventing any sight of the coast or surroundings and soon after one o'clock the vessel struck with such force that it was at once seen she must become a total wreck. The captain (Brown) and crew, twelve in number, at once took to the lifeboats and so rapid was the foundering of the steamer that they had time to save only part of their effects. The Prospero sank in deep water within twenty minutes of having struck. It was found that the boats were off Skokholm Island, near Milford Haven, and they were discovered by the tug White Rose, of Cardiff, which picked up the men and brought them on to Cardiff, where they were Luded at half-past seven on Monday morning. The Prospero was owned by Messrs. Gilchrist and Company, and is wel^known as trading be- tween Cardiff and Liverpool. But for the fortu- nate circumstance that the sea was very calm. it is feared that the boats would not have been able to jet away from the dangerous place where the vessel struck and sank. J
