LOCAL NOTES, -o T I IE.Cf.E OR PUBMC LAM VS. In another column our readers will notice a report of a discussion that took place last Tuesday at the Local Board meeting with regard .to permitting the Y.M.C.A. to place ihe letters Y.M.C.A. on a public lamp •wgiich happens to be just outside their premises. It by all parties in the State alike viz., that public money must go to public purposes. We consider that Mr. Jewel Williams was perfectly in the right in objecting to have a public lamp used for ad- vertising purposes. The Working Men's Club jit Holton may, with equal right and propriety, ask the Board to allow them to advertise the club on a public lamp, for that also is an institution to which all may belong- It is no excuse to say that the Y.M.C.A. is a religious institution and the club is not, for the Local Board has no more to do with the success of religion than it has with the success of a club. THE IIOLTON DEPUTATION. On Tuesday a deputation from Holton waited on the Local Board to ask them to leave in abeyance one of their bye-laws. The bye- law in question provides that a tank and proper flushing apparatus should be attached to every water-closet in the district. The deputation complained (i.) that the bye-law was being enforced, (il.) that it was enforced unfairly and unequally, and (iii.) that it was enforced against the wish of the ratepayers. We were sorry to see that several members of the Board seemed disposed to truckle to the deputation, and to allow the bye-law to remain in abeyance. This is a very serious matter, and we can not believe that it lies within the power of the Board not to enforce their bye-laws. The bye-law of a local authority is a private law, which is as binding within the Local Board :y,rea as ail Act of Parliament is in her Majesty s dominions. We vpry much doubt whether the Board can legally allow the bye-law to remain in abeyance, and we feel sure that it will be out of order for the Board to discuss the matter at the next meeting. RESCIND THE BYE-LAW OR ENFORCE IT. There are only two courses open to the Board, In our opinion they can either rescind the bye- law in question or they must make up their minds to enforce it. Some of the members, as we have said, seem inclined to adopt a policy of funk" while others have always frankly opposed the bye-law, as it presses too hard, ac- cording to them, on the property-owners. But the remedy lies, not in refusing to enforce the bye- law, but in rescinding fit. But before the bye-law can be rescinded, the consent of the Local Government Board must be obtained and whatever the faults of the Board may be, it cannot be laid to its charge that it will prefer the interests of the property owners to the interests of sanitation. It is because they recognise the impossibility of ridding the pro- perty owners of their just and legal obligations with the aid of the Local Government Board, that the representatives of the property owners on the Board propose that the bye law should remain among the Board's bye-laws, but that it should not be enforced. THE I!YE-LAW NOT UNFAIRLY JCN RCED. ( The bve-law has not been unl T enforce, It has been in existence since w .?oard ftas been in existence exery propert./ owner built his houses knowing, or having the means of knowing, that such a by<3-law did exist. It is absurd to say that Holton has been picked out specially by the Board for the enforcement of that bye-law for notices similar to those which have been served in Holton. have been served or will shortly be served all over the district. It is equally untrue to say that Mr. Phillips has been unfairly dealt with in being picked out for prosecution by the Board. The Board wished to make an example, which would have a good effect on other property owners therefore they had to get a man who would fight his case. Mr. Phillips was said to be willing to tight the Board and Mr. Phillips 1 11 was, therefore, threatened with legal pro- ceedings. WHERE THE UNFAIRNESS COMES IN. The unfairness, nay the injustice, would come in if the Board were to refuse to enforce the bye-law. All over the district property owners have been compelled to put up proper flushing apparatus in consequence of the bye- law. Why should some owners be compelled to do this. while others arc let olV, simply bccaus e they have possessed more hardihood to defy the Board, and to jeopardise the health of the district ? There is no manner of unfairness or injustice in compelling property owners to put up proper Hashing apparatus. There is no class of people who have done better at Barry than the owners of property, and we question whether there are any who arc doing so well at the present time. We believe we are right in saying that few of them get less than f> per cent, on their investments rents are even yet higher at Barry than they are at Cardiff and by asking the property owners to spend some money in providing proper sanitation for the district, the Local Board are only asking those who are best able to do it, and those who as a class, have reaped the greatest benefit out of the district. AIIE THE i; VTKl'AYKItS (C'PU.-ED TO THE liYE-LAM" 'i We were told over and over again by the deputation that the ratepayers were against the enforcement of the bye-- law, and that the Board knew it. But is that so ? If the ratepayers are opposed to it, they should have made it. as General Lee said, the test question at the last election. Since that w not done. we may be pcrmittc.1 to express our disbelief in any such opposition on the part of the ratepayers. No one who knows the state of our sewers, after a week's fine weather, can deny that something must bo done if we are to make Barry a healthy town. The deputation suggested that it would be cheaper if the Board would thi.sh the sewers, instead of insisting that each water- closet should be flushed. We quite agree with the deputation it would be eheaper-for the property-owners. But would it be cheaper for the ratepayers V In the first place, the Local Board, <.>■. the ratepayers, would have to provide proper apparatus for flushing the Board s men and the Board s horses would be used and the Board would have to pay the Company for the water used. At present every householder has to pay the water company for water for a flushing appara- tus which, in inaMy cases, lie never gets. If the suggestion of the deputation were adopted, the water would be paid for twice—by the Board and by the householder—and the only pocket saved would be that of the pro- perty owner. HEALTH HEFORE WILil.T fi. It is by this time a truism to say that there is a great future in store for Barry. But the greatest legacy of all that we can hand down to our successors is a healthy town. whose sanita- tation is as perfect as possible. It is far better that the percentage of the owners of property should be a little less than that the town should be rendered unhealthy through defective sani- tary arrangements. It is said that the cholera has saved more people than it has kiiled, because it has compelled our Govern- ment and our local authorities to pay more attention to sanitation. The near approach of the cholera will, we trust, outweigh even the selfish grumblings of our property ownors. We hope that we shall hear no more of the cholera at this time: and if we do not have a return of hot weather, it may be taken for granted ,) ::> that there will be little fear of an outbreak of choiera in England this year. But we jnust look to the future. THE <iOi.Ei;a. Eugene Sue, in his once popular novel, The Wandering Jew." imagined that the cobbler, who refused to. allow Christ to rest on his windowsill on the way to Calvary, was cursed with a fatal immortality, and that wherever an irresistible impulse took him, the dread sco«rge j of the cholera would follow. Though this, of course, was but a phantom of a novelist's imagi- nation, it is curious to observe how slowly the cholera epidemic does travel, exactly as if i^ fol- lowed the leisurelv movements of an immortal. In 1847-8 and 181)4-5 its route was something like this. One year it would be heard of in Persia or some country still farther j east next year it would have travelled to the seaport towns of Western Europe: and the following year it would devastate our own country. The present epidemic has hitherto followed the same course. Last year it was in the east, this year it is in Hamburg, Havre, and the continental towns if the precedents of former years will be followed, next year we will have it in our midst. It is, therefore, of the most vital importance that we should make the sanitary arrangements of the district as perfect as possible. Dr. Thompson, the Local Government Board inspector, laid the greatest stress on the enforcement of the bye-law which has proved such a rock of offence to property owners. We would advise the Board to hearken to the disinterested advice of a *■■a.ntnt. rather than to the grumblings of a pampered j ;lass.

ROUND THE TOWNS. [BY MR. &AD-ABOUT.J The tenant of Flat Holm is a man named Harris. I ok The Local Board's overdraft at the bank is over £12,000. Mr. John Robinson has resigned his office under the Barry Company. 3: •? The interest in football seems to be on the increase. Another new club has been started this week. It may interest some of my readers to know that there is a barracks and a •• pub." on the Flat Holm. Three Cadoxton men have been temporarily lamed Dr. Treharne, Mr. R. G. Morris, and Mr. Percival. S: A member of the Local Board on Tuesday was of opinion that the omission ought to be eliminated." Mr. Pereival, the Cadoxton sprinter, won the second prize for the hurdle race at Penarth sports on Saturday. The Loyal Victoria Lodge of Buffaloes have started a minstrel troupe, which promises to be a great success. A motto for speculators at Barry •• Blessed is he that expectetti nothing-, for verily he shall not be.t disappointed." At the Penarth Police-court on Monday a man asked the magistrates to grant him an applica- tion for a summons." Ma jor-Gencral Lee was unsparing at the High- way Board meeting on Wednesday in his praises of the Board's surveyor. Two members of tho Local Board were absent from Tuesday's meeting-, Mr. W. Thomas (Sully) and Mr. Benjamin Lewis. Messrs. Cruise and Mrs. Murphv were some years ago. members of rhe Rev. ,J. Clevordon Honey's Sunday School at Cardiff. Acting-sergeant Ben Davies was sufficiently recovered to he present and give evidence at the Penarth Police-court on Monday. A defending solicitor in an assault case the other day said that boarding-house keepers robbed the poor sailors something frightful. The Young Wales Society will hold their first meeting at the English Methodist Chapel in Court-road 011 Tuesday night next. Mr. Lewis Lewis, though a temperance man, said that no licence should be refused by the magistrates at Barry Dock on Thursday. ■4 At the Dinas Powis Highway Board on Wednes- day. loud and prolonged were the growls when the surveyor asked that a rate of lOd. in the £ be made. It was with a wicked smile that General Lee asked at the licensing sessions if Mr.. George Thomas intended living in the Bassett Arms Hotel. Mr. William Thomas, of Barry and Vere-street. Cadoxton. thinks that Sully Island would be a much better place for a Cholera. Hospital than the Flat Holm. Farmers say this is one of the worst seasons they have experienced for sometime. Wheat stands at 3s. 3d. per bushel, and butchers IHY but very poor prices for cattle. The music supplied at the dance Oil Mabon's -Day at the Buffalo Institute was in exctllent time and tune. I expect to hear further of the per- formances of the band. t Si At the Bible Christian Chapel on Wednesday evening speeches were delivered by two ministers, one of whom had been married exactly 28 years, and the other 28 days. General Lee call* that dismal passage where deputations and candidates are left to cool their heels, while waiting the pleasure of the Local Board, the •' ante-rocm." The Rev. J. C. Horsey said on Wednesday night that he and his brother, the pastor of the Bible Christian Chapel, had never used one cross word towards each other. Mr. W. L. Hughes still recounts the doings of the Wednesday District Football Team with much zest. He was well (io eridenc- at the football meeting' on Monday night. The Science and Art Classes will begin on Mon- day week. Intending pupils should communicate with Mr. E. F. Blackraore, Barry. The fee is 5s. per subject for the session. The moonlighting tendency of the Irishman is ineradicable. Dr. ornonuell took the District footballers on Monday night to examine the foot- ball ground by moonlight. The Rev. E. L. Jstfmer. curate of St. Mary's. Cardiff, and brother of the Rev. G. Jenner, of Wenvoe, uses neither manuscript or notes, and is the fastest preacher in Cardiff. I trust that the dissatisfaction which was. ac- cording to a member of the Science and Art Com- mittee, felt with the way one of the teachers last session did his work, will no longer exist. r :¡( How strangely .men are thrown together. At the licensing sessions, Mr. Ton Evans appeared) t in the prisoner's dock between Mr. Albert. Chappelil and Mr. Hoddinott. When shall we three meet again. Prosser Bach" made an excellent conductor at the Welsh Musical Festival ou Monday. He was of opinion that. the hymns of Wales represented all that was best in the fiery Welsh preaching of long ago. There was great waste of gas in the dreary Board-rooin at the Barry Dock Board School on Tuesday night. Xo wonder one of the Science and Art Committee said that we paid for being poisoned. & I tasted the apples stolen by a young man who, for the offence, was fined at the Penarth Police- court, and I am of opinion that he would have been amply punished had he been made to eat half-a-dozen of them. £ Lucky man the tenant of Flat Holm is If a. case of cholera is taken there, he and his family will be given a free trip to Cardiff, and his ex- penses there will be paid till he can return once more to his Juan Fernandez. £ When Dr. Neale was informed of a ship flying the quarantine flag, he thought, Well, at last. here's a buna Jidf case of cholera." But it proved to be only an addition to the great number of drowning cases of this year. As General Lee did not attend the Nursing Association meeting on Wednesday, it was decided to wait till he would be present to hand in the subscriptions, Which, said Mrs. Cory, ''General Lee is always most pleased to receive." The Surveyor-Astronomer of the Local Board has failed once more. This week there has been a lovely harvest moon. Still we have every lamp in the place alight, A'r lloer yn lli." :;c I congratulate myoId friend. Mr. Tom Moraran, who prims my immortal works at the STAR office, on his election to the captaincy or the Barry District Football Team. It is a well deserved honour, and I wish him and his team a successful season. Everybody will admit that he generally makes a good impression. Why did the members of the Barry District Football Team trouble their heads on Monday night about the question of insuring themselves against accidents. As they all buy the RTAH, should an accident occur they would be com- pensated for it. Dr. Thompson, the Government inspector, was very pleased with the way the Local Board had taken precautions against the cholera. He was. indeed very pleased with the way the Local Board generally, had done its work. But the grumblers are always with us Mr. Thomas. Sully, like the unselfish man ho is. preserves all his hares for the use and pleasure of those gentlemen who enjoy a coursing match over his farm. During the 12 years he has been at Sully not a single hare has been killed by him for his own private amusement. At the Penarth Police-court on Monday Mr. Jones, who defended a Barry Dock boarding- master charged with assaulting a sailor with a poker, swayed the poker about in a manner which caused the solicitors near him to fear he intended using it on their craniums (or is it crania .') Mr. John Lloyd, of B.irry. believes that no one who sings in a place of worship should sing in a concert, because the captive Israelites refused to sing in the concerts that were held in the t; hanging gardens of Babylon. But then the Israelites did not even sing the songs of Zion. .:= WILD GEF.SE.

M Have a pipe said a Barry man to a friend who had called to see him. •• No. thank you," was the answer, I on]y smoke cigars." After a painful pau.se. the caner pulled out a cigar case, and said, Have a cigar"No, thank you," answered his friend. "I only smoke tobacco." They don't speak now. General Lee justly appreciates the luncheons got up under the direction of Mr. D. T. Alexander. At the Highway Board meeting- on Wednesday, when Mr. Alexander proposed that the Board should visit a certain road to inspect it. the wily General finished it off by suggesting that they should alllullch with Mr. Alexander afterwards. Two Barry men came across a dead creature in Porthkerry Park last Saturday afternoon. One said it was a weasel: the other said it was a stoat, It is a weasel." said one. as you can w-easily see." No," said the other, 4 it's a stoat, which is s-toatallv different.' The two gentlemen are now slowly recovering under the able treatment of Dr. Xee. The interesting lady, who rusticates not a hundred miles from Cadoxton, and who has caused such a fluttering: among the dovecotes of Holme- street and Foster-street, is still pursuing' her fate- ful course, and there are breakers ahead A depu- tation of damsels will shortly wait on her. armed with shovels, pokers, and spits. More atioi t! T,f r. F. W. Taylor writes:—"Referring to my letter in your issue of last week, and the sugges- tion contained therein. I have much pleasure in informing you that I have just received a letter from- Councillor T. J. Hughes, that he has given notice of motion for the next County Council meeting to carry the suggestion into practical efl'eet." Teeichers-should be careful to rub out the work they have been doing on the black-board before leaving the school. At. Barry on Tuesday night, before the opening of the Science and Art Com- mittee's meeting, the members noticed the ill-made figures on the ooar<i. and that astute mathema- t-icioai Mr. Meggitt, detected a mistake in a sub- traction sum. :(: F: C. writes :—" Much comment is caused in the neighbourhood by the fact that Mr. Harrison, the secretary of the Firemen's Union, was one of the sureties of a man who was arrested on a charge of ill-treating n sailor—one of the class Mr. Harrison is so zealous to benefit. Was it because the- seaman in question did not belong to Mr. Harrison's C nioll :r- The curiosity of woman An economical young maa who makes a present of the STAR every week to. a charming lady at Cadoxton, cut out some paragraphs which he wished to send away before making the usual present. The young iady did noi rest till another copy of rhe STAR had been procured, and the first things looked for were the p&ragraphs which had been cut out. At the committee meeting of the Nursing Asso- eiatiou. Dr. Neale asked were there any further suggestions, and Mrs. Cory answered that the most important suggestion would be how to make up the extra money required, as they were £ 17 on the wrong side. Lh*. Livingstone proposed that the next meeting should be a re,tl business meeting, and—no tea. Dr. Xeale supported that proposition. X A nice bit of scandal is promised us at Cadoxton. A local tradesman has two shops. In one of them he and his family live the rooms above the other he has let to a lady. It is said that he devotes more time and attention to his tenant than to his wife and so irritable have the neighbours become that they threaten to resort to legal proceedings to put a stop to the merry matins of the tradesman and hie lady tenant. J'.i No sooner had the Macedona made fast in Barry Dock on Wednesday night, than the captain's cabin was invaded by a runner on behalf of a local tradesman with the usual importunities for orders. No." said the captain, tossing back the most humbly presented card, "I know you. you've done me before, but not again. Now, get out This had no more effect upon the runner than whisky upon a publican it was his element. ¥ The deputation from Holton which waited on the Local Board on Tuesday must have gone away with a very queer idea of the Bonrd. I never saw anything so like a bear-garden in my life. Mr. George Thomas, with the near prospect of an elec- tion before him, managed to convey to the deputa- tion that he agreed with them. and other members of the Board kept making frantic efforts to enjoy the same advantage. The proceedings throughout were most undignified. and showed the lamentable want of a strong man in the chair. No discussion ought to have been allowed till the deputation had gone away. A correspondent writes It is most unfair that such a fuss should be made over the testi- monial proposed to be given to Police-constable J. Phillips for his so-called Iteroic conduct in cap- turing the Wenvoe bursars. ] don't say but that the constable is capable of heroism, but there was no heroism displayed on the occasion in question. As a matter of fact. Inspector Uses heard of the attempt and stationed the men. Police-constable Phillips was at his post, and captured the first burglar, whose character may be judged 1 from the fact that ho turned Queen's evidence. Acting-sergeant Gammon then captured the other two. Is it fair that Phillips should get the credit for capturing all three, as it is inscribed on the medal to be presented to him.' Inspector Rees and Acting-sergeant Gammon are surely as worthy as Phillips of recognition. Why are they not pre- sented with a public testimonial.' Many are asking- if it is because they go to chapel, and not to church." CORRESPONDENCE. Dear Mr. Gad-About,—I hope you will attend the meetings of the Young Wales Society in the coming winter. Your kindly notes and words of encouragement will be much appreciated by our rising hopes of the Young Wales Party.— Yours, CV-Wlit" FYCD. .:c Dear Mr. Gad-About.—Can't you put a stop to the multiplication of football clubs at Cadoxton Already we have three established, which is two too many.

EDUCATION IN WALES.
"Wales. Dean Owen succeeded him, and white maintaining his predecessor's ideal, gave to the institution something of the Welsh character which it had to some' extent lost. The present warden, the Rev. Owen Evans, has not only reaped what his two predecessors have sown, but by untiring energy and unfailing tact has advanced the school to its present high level. No Welshman need begrudge Llandovery its success. It is the most Welsh -of any public school in Wales, and though it is a Church foundation, and though ■its atmosphere is somewhat "churchy," no ■pressure of any kind is brought to bear on a Nonconformist boy to change his faith. The triumph of Llandovery School is the triumph -of the Welsh over the English boy of Welsh quickness over English training. At the same time, we may be allowed to -aeplore the fact that one of the original inten- sions of the founder, Mr. Thomas Phillips, has of late years been to a great extent lost sight of. The following is an extract from the Trust Deecl :—" The scholars will be instructed in Welsh reading, grammar, and composition. The Welsh language shall be taught exclusively during one hour every school day, and be then the sole medium of communication in the school and shall be used .at all other con- venient periods as the language of the school, so as to familiarise the scholars with its use as a colloquial language. The primary intent and object of the founder (which is instruction and education in the Welsh lan- guage) shall be faithfully observed." It cannot I ) be said that tho" primary intent" of the founder has been altogether ignored but the keen competition with English public schools has caused the primary intent" to occupy a subordinate place. It is not too late to hope that the directors of the school will see their way to carry out the wise and primary intent" .of the founder, and thus help the realisation of the sanguine and glorious dream of the best Welsh educationists—of seeing the people of Wal es a bilingual nation.
