BARRY AND CADOXTON LOCAL BOARD. nfo — THE PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE. A monthly meeting of the Public Works Com- mittee of the Local Board was held last Friday at the Local Board Offices, Vere-street. Mr. George Thomas presided, and there were also present :— Dr. O'Donnell, Mr. William Thomas (Barry), Mr. Barstow. Alderman Moggitt, Mr. John Robinson, Mr. Walker (the Board's engineer), Mr. Pardoe .(surveyor), and Mr. J. A. Hughes (clerk). THE ISLAND SEWERAGE AND THE BARRY HARBOUR SEWER. Mr. Walker reported on the matter of the Barry Island sewer, a question having been raised by Mr. Thomas at the last Board meeting as to whether it would be possible to take the main sewer across the Island and do away with the necessity of a separate sewer for the Island. Mr. Walker illus- trated his plan by means of carefully-drawn plans. He estimated one scheme wculd cost £ 11,500 to carry out, and another £ 14,668, or to carry it out across the Island £ 16.150. He recommended the Board to proceed with the scheme for Barry which had been before the Board.—After a long and rather animated debate, Mr. Alderman Meggitt proposed, and Mr. Barstow seconded, that the Com- mittee recommend the Board to proceed with the scheme recommended by Mr. Walker, as previously adopted. — This was agreed to unanimously. -The Committee next went through the conditions agreed upon between the Barry Co., Lord Windsor, and the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board.—Mr. George Thomas proposed that they recommend the Board to agree to the terms laid down by Mr. Hughes and Mr. C. R. Walker on behalf the of Local Board, and Mr. Forrest and Mr. Downing on behalf of the Barry Co.—This was agreed to.—Mr. Meggitt asked if the Board had control of the Barry Co.'s sewer. The Clerk 0 replied in the negative.—Mr. Meggitt said there ,was a large number of worhshops on the docks, and he questioned whether they were connected with the sewer.—The Clerk said they had had -enough difficulty already.—Mr. Meggitt said he thought it very important that the cesspools con- nected with the workshops should be joined to the •sewer. At the Graving Dock for instance, a large number of men were employed. These men lived in the town, and paid rates and he thought it was their duty to look after the men's health. He begged to move that the Board -should ask the Barry Company to give them con- trol over the Company's sewer.—Mr. Meggitt stipulated that this request should not delay the present agreement.—This was carried unanimously. MISCELLANEOUS. The surveyor's report was read, and on his re- commendation it was decided to pay the Board contractors in future monthly. It was decided to serve notice on the owners in Glamorgan-street and Vale-street to carry out the private im- provements. The Surveyor reported that the fixin"- of the iron work of the slaughter- house was going on satisfactory ly, and would probably be finished this week, and the slaughter house would no doubt be ready for use in a short time. He recommended that the Slaughter-house Committee should now fix a scale of charges.—It was decided that the Slaughter-house Committee should hold a meeting on Tuesday next.—The boiler of the steam-roller had been forwarded to Messrs. Aveling and Porter, and those erentlemen advised that it should be Tepaired at once.-Ag-reed to.—The Surveyor sub- mitted plans of improvements in a lane in the Holton-road. which was agreed to.-A letter was read from the Rev. Aaron Davies, of Pontllctyn, in reference to the arrangements of his houses in the Court-road. He had orderad the requirements -of the Board to be complied with in the houses. With regard to the drainage in his field he asked that, as the Board had laid down pipes in it without asking his permission that they would do the necessary work.—The Clerk said that Mr. Davies had done work that he was not compelled to do, and which, if he had not done, the Board would have been compelled to do, and the cost of so doing had been "IIlore than of that which he asked the Board to do, which was about £ 12.—The Committee decided to do the work. if the cost of it could be included in Mr. Rutter's loan.—Messrs. Richards and Gethin wrote to say that Mr. Forrest consented to the -alteration of the name of Gwenthine-street to Flora-street.—The Surveyor asked for instructions as to whether he should build a permanent or a temporary building in which to place the disin- fecting apparatus.—Mr. Barstow proposed, and Dr. O'Donnell seconded, that a temporary shed should be built. This was agreed to.—The Chairman ex- plained. at the surveyor s request, the jointure of the Dock View-road and the Holton-road, and the sewer connected with it. He announced that, instead of making a road 40 feet wide, the owners had determined to make one 60 feet.—The Sur- veyor submitted plans of houses on Barry Island for Messrs. Pile and Bass.—At the instance of the Surveyor, the drainage of Barry-road and Gilbert- street, and the houses behind the Witchill was -again considered.—The committee decided that the work should be carried out if a loan could be ob- tained for the purpose. A ROUND OF INSPECTION. The Surveyor read a list of the streets in which -private improvements should be carried out.—The Chairman said he thought that the committee should go over the district and see where private improvements were required, before ordering them to be done.—This the committee decided to do, and the district was divided up as follows :—Cadoxton, Mr. Barstow and Mr. Robinson; Barry Dock, Dr. O'DonnelI and Mr. George Thomas; Barry, Mr. Alderman Meggitt and Mr. William Thomas. THE CARRYING OUT OF THE BYE-LAWS. The Surveyor having submitted plans of villas in Court-road for Mr. J. Davies, Dr. O'Donnell said it was one of the Board's bye-laws that before any buildings were erected plans should be sub- mitted and approved by the committee. This was not done. The buildings were put up, and when -half finished plans were submitted. He proposed that in future the Board require plans to be sent in before any building be done.—Mr. W. Thomas seconded.—The Clerk said that as this was one of the bye-laws of the Board, no resolution was -wanted in the matter. They only needed to insist upon a strict fulfilment of the bye-law in question. THE OPEN PITS. Dr. O'Donnell drew attention to the many open -pits half filled with stagnant water in the district. On a hot day these pits smelt very badly, and caused a nuisance.—Mr. Thomas moved that the attention of owners of property be called to the matter.—After some further discussion it was de- cided, on the Clerk's recommendation, to leave the matter to the Health Committee.

CORRESPONDENCE. A CORRECTION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR SIR.—I shall feel greatly obliged if you would kindly insert this in the next issue of your well- circulated and much read paper. An erroneous statement concerning me appeared in your contemporary last week under the heading of Mrs. Grundy's Jottings" to the effect that I intended giving the whole of the proceeds taken at my business establishment between the hours of six and ten o'clock on Thursday evening, 15th inst., towards the Nursing Association Fund. As this is likely to create a wrong impression upon the minds of the whole of the residents of Cadoxton and district, I wish to state' that this is a mistake. I informed a prominent member of the Trades Council that I was prepared on the date above mentioned, between the hours of five and nine o'clock p.m., to present the whole of the receipts taken in my liaircutting and shaving room to such a deserving cause as the Nursing Association, such monies to be placed in a collec- tion box provided me for the occasion. Thanking you in anticipation, I am, itc., 37. Yere-street, W. H. CLEVERDON, Cadoxton, Sept. 12th, 1892. CADOXTON THEATRE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR,—On Saturday night last I thought I would patronise the local theatre, instead of going up, as is my usual custom, to Cardiff. I did not expect, of course, to see anything so good as I could see at :Cardiff. but I did expect a moderately good thing for my modest shilling. When I went in I found a fair number present, the gallery being well patronised, and a fair sprinkling sitting in the stalls. The first item on the programme was a song from a lady whom I won't name. I never heard anything so ridicu- lously bad in my life, and I could not in my heart blame the audience for hooting her off the stage, as they did. I was sorry for the lady, but I had to admit that if the public have to pay for admission to hear a professional singer they have the right to express the(r approval or disapproval, and they have the right to expect to be treated as people who know the difference between good and bad singing. Then we had a gentleman who sang of getting drunk. Then we had a lady whom I won't criticise at all. Suffice to say that she was wt-11 cheered, and even encored by the audience. There followed after that a farce—the most farcical and ridiculous farce it has ever been my lot to witness. In this also it was shown what good effects follow getting -blind, speechless, paralytic drunk" (as one of the characters said). We had then the first young lady once more. singing some doleful dirge about •' She winked the other eye." After helping to hoot her off the stage, I left in disgust. I con- sider it a shame, Sir. that we cannot get something better than utter rot at our local theatre. We want a singer who can sing as well as the average amateur, and we want a song and farce about something better than the glory of getting blind, speechless, and paralytic drunk."—I am. &c.. Cadoxton. HISTRIOMASTIX. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR,-l write to your valuable paper to protest against the rowdyism that prevails at the Royal Theatre, Cadoxton, especially on a Saturday night. I am foud of turning in on a Saturday night to hear a song or to see the grand spectacular effects of a blood and thunder melodrama, and to smoke a quiet pipe withal. The theatre is a very com- fortable one, and if properly looked after it could be made into a splendid place for a working man to spend his Saturday night without having to resort for comfort or company to the publichouse. But as the place is carried on now, it can pever be successfully worked, and if no change is made, soon no decent working man will attend any of the performances. Last Saturday night the dis- order and rowdyism was something disgraceful. Shouts, and whistles, and yells, shrieks of "ginger beer," and stamping of feet, and small boys fight- ing in the gallery—all conspired to make me thoroughly uncomfortable and unhappy. Cannot the Local Board, or the police, or somebody, inter- fere to keep order ? I think, sir, the Local Board should tell the lessee that unless the place is looked after in a more satisfactory way his license will not be renewed next year.-I am, yours truly, Cadoxton. PLAY-GOER. IIALE VOICE PARTY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR,—Will you kindly insert a few lines in the next issue of the SOUTH WALES STAR to the effect that, commencing on the 18th inst., the Barry Male Voice Party will hold practices on Sunday evenings at the Welsh Baptist Chapel, Holton- road. The practice on Sunday next will commence at 8.0 p.m., and I should be much obliged if you would impress upon persons wishing to become members of the party the necessity of at once making appli- cation.—Yours faithfully, Barry, Sept. 13. D. FARR (Conductor.) = THE CHOLERA AND INFECTED LETTERS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR.—Will you kindly allow me a small space in your. intellectual and instructive paper? It is very satisfactory to note the excellent precautions taken by the local sanitary authorities to prevent the introduction of cholera into the district; but while so much attention is given to examining the incoming vessels, the fact that great numbers of letters continue to arrive from infected ports is completely overlooked. Now. there is nothing so certain to carry desease of whatever kind as paper and. I think, a great share of attention should be paid to the postal department, and every care be taken to do away with the possibility of the cholera being introduced into this or any other place through the delivery cf infected letters arriving from a cholera-stricken port. With the hope that the local sanitary people may give this point their consideration, and take steps to have all letters of this kind disinfected before coming here.—I am, &c., POSTMAN. Barry Dock. THE QUARANTINE TUG. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ''SOUTH WALES STAR," SIR,-Will you kindly insert this letter in your valuable paper. The crew of the Pelaw, doing duty in the Barry Roads, engaged to work about six hours at tide time. but on some days they have had to work 17 and 18 hours. If they work like this who is to pay them for the extra labour? As yet no mention has been made to either the captain on the others that is they should be paid for the extra hours, nnd it is out of all consideration that they shoud do it for nothing. A public body should be last to sweat" men in their employ.—I am. &c., Barry Dock. DOCKMAN.

Ond, beth bynag, y mae y gyma-nfa gyntaf o'r fath wedi bod yn llwyddiant. Gobeithio 'nawr y ceir undeb a chydweithrediad cyNredinol gyda'r gymanfa nesaf.

DANGERS OF SPORT. — IMPORTANT TO FOOTBALLERS AND CYCLISTS. INSURE AGAINST RISK On Tuesday a week young man named Edwards nearly met with a serious accident near Cadoxton while out cycling. This only illustrates how great is the danger attached to every form of out-door sport and amusement. Even now, when safety bicycles are so much used, a considerable amount of danger is inseparable from the popular pastime of cycling. The danger to which every player of Football -especially under the Rugby rules-is open lends, indeed, attraction and excitement to the game, but it, no doubt, deters many a poor man who can ill afford to be laid up with a fractured arm or leg from indulging in that healthy and invigorating game. In view of this the promoters of the SOUTH WALES STAR have determined to introduce a novel departure which will, we believe, not only com- mend the paper still more to the public, but which will prove of inestimable benefit to our local Cyclists and Footballers. To every person who has sustained an injury which will result in fracture of an arm or leg while engaged in playing football or while cycling t, 9 will be paid the sum of t5, provided the person so injured shall be the owner of the SOUTH WALES STAR for the current week, containing an Insurance Coupon with his usual signature written in ink thereon. RAILWAY AND STREET ACCIDENTS. This Coupon Insurance will also cover all accidents which may happen to the owner of the current SOUTH WALES STAR, while a passenger on any Railway, Steamboat, Tramway, Omnibus Street, or on any Public Road within the United Kingdom as a PRIVATE INDIVIDUAL. This Coupon Insurance, therefore, practically insures the possessor of one copy of the paper against all accidents that may happen to him, except at the time when following his ordinary occupation. Coupons have, however, been hitherto, in general, limited to railway accidents, and that for death only. A recently published Parliamentary return gives the number of persons killed and injured on the railways in the United Kingdom during 1890 as 918 KILLED AND 8,971 INJURED. ,Great as this number is, yet, having regard to the hundreds of thousands who travel upon the vast network^of railway lines in the United Kingdom, it is an obvious reflection that railway travelling, as compared with the dangers of the streets, is by far the safest mode of progression. It has seemed to us and to others that a system of insurance which would give some compensation to those who meet with ACCIDENTS IN THE STREETS, and afford a welcome contribution towards the in- evitable expenses of such mishaps, would be a boon to the public at large. Hundreds of men, week in, week out, from year's end to year's end, travel by railway, 'bus, or tram to and from business, who have not insured their lives or provided in any way against accident. The possibility of how to extend to these some modicum of protection is naturally hedged about by a great many difficulties but at least the benefits which we have now placed within the reach of the purchasers of our paper are such as could only be obtained from the com- pany direct by paying more than the price of the paper. Football, which is a national game, is, by reason of the fervour with which it is played, attended with more danger than any other pastime, if we may judge from the number of accidents from time to time reported. Having regard to the enthut-iasm which it invokes in these districts, the circumstance that our insurance coupon pro- vides also for the INSURANCE OF PLAYERS of this g-ame cannot fail to command cordial ap- proval. It is noteworthy that football risks have ordi- narilybeen regarded byaccident insurance companies as necessitating higher premiums, or indeed as un- desirable, and this has led to the institution of a Football Insurance Union. But while the insur- ance in this journal is limited to one coupon for each holder, it is not invalidated by any insurance, other than coupon, with any Accident Company. but is in addition thereto. It is hardly necessary for us to dwell upon the fact that cycling, like everything else, has its dangers, but to use an Irish exoression only more so," and the same benefits are extended to cyclists as to football players.
