IBARHY RAILWAY COMPANY. MEETING OF DIRECTORS. RESIGNATION OF MR. JOHN ROBINSON. NEGOTIATIONS FOR THE ACQUIRE- MENT OF CADOXTON MOORS. The monthly meeting of the directors of the Barry Dock and Railways Company was held on Friday at the Board-room, General Offices, Barry Dock. Mr. Archibald Hood, J.P., deputy-chairman, presiding. There were also present Mr. T. R. 1 4- Thompson, J.P., Mr. Robert Forrest. J.P.. and other directors Mr. Richard Evans, general manager Mr. G. C. Downing, solicitor and Mr. W. Mein, secretary. The proceedings of the meeting', as usual. were conducted in private, but we are in- formed that the directors have definitely determined to acquire the whole of Cadoxton Moors, for which they have purchasing powers under the company's Act of 1S86, and have, accordingly taken, steps to open negotiations with the lady of .the manor (Mrs. Jenner. Wenvoe Castle) and the Cadoxton commoners for this purpose. It is not yet, we believe, decided whether this land will be utilised for dock extension works at once. or whether a portion will be reserved for this purpose and the remainder placed in the market as sites for the erection of manufactories and other industries. It was reported that the deep water entrance and new graving dock contract works at Barry were proceeding satisfactorily, and some of the direc- tors inspected the same after the meeting. Mr. John Robinson. M.Inst.C.E.. the company's resident j engineer, handed in his resignation, that gentleman having been in the company's service from the outset, and under his personal superintendence the whole of the docks and railway works were, not only successfully constrncted, but since maintained in a most efficient condition. The intimation of Mr. Robinson's resignation (which was sent in owing to the completion of the company's prin- cipal works) was received with regret, the direc- tors present referring in gratifying terms to the eminent abilities which had been displayed from the outset by Mr. Robinson as engineer. The resignation was accepted.—Other business was transacted. At the close of the meeting the direc- tors and officials present lunched at the Barry Dock Hotel.
