BARRY AND CADOXTON LOCAL BOARD.
BARRY AND CADOXTON LOCAL BOARD. — MONTHLY MEETING. The monthly meeting of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board was held at the Board-room, Cadoxton, on Tuesday last. when there were present Mr. J. Robinson 'in the chair). General Lee, Alderman Megcitt, Dr. O'Donnell. Dr. Trehame, and Messrs. J. Barstow. J. J- Williams, George Thomas, \V. Thomas (Barrv). W. Thomas (Sully), Benjamin Lewis, J. A. Hughes (clerk), J. C. Pardoe (sur- veyor), and C. Howe (collector). A DANGE20US PRACTICE. Mr. David Griffiths waited on the Board to point out the damages that resulted from the practice of blasting near public roads without effectual protec- tion in the way of a chain net or some other safe- guard, and instanced an accident that had occurred at the lower end of the Barry-road on August 23rd, the particulars of which have already appeared in the South Wale* Star. After a long discussion the suggestion of General Lee was adopted that "the surveyor be asked to report on the matter to the next Public Works Committee, and that full powers be given to the committee to safeguard the lives and property of those living near the quarry. The blasting operations in the quarry were in the meantime ordered to be stopped. FINANCE COMMITTEE. The report of the Finance Committee wns confirmed, -General Lee explaining that the tender of Messrs. fiagnall and Co. for a loan of £ 6,915 to the Board though not the lowest, being accepted, because the committee thought Messrs. Dagnall could best be trusted to supply the money at the required time. PRIVATE IMPROVEMENTS. It was stated tha,t a mistake had been made in adding up the figures of certain tenders which had been sent in to the Public Works Committee- Mr. lace had sent in the lowest tender for Sydenham- street and Fryatt-street, Barry Dock, and Mr. Love for Kin,rsland-crescent. The contract for the two former streets was, therefore, given to Mr. Ince, and for Kingsland-crescent to Mr. Love. There were some minor mistakes made in other tenders, but theso were comroaritivelv immaterial and the recommendation of the Public Works Committee was in other instances accepted. OPENING- OF TENDERS. Mr Benjamin Lewis asked by what authority had the Public Works Committee, opened the tenders. Hitherto no committee had been allowed to open tenders except after a resolution to that effect by the Board, and he was not aware that such a resolution had been passed in the present instance—Mr. J. C. Meggitt proposed, and Mr. B. Lewis seconded that no tenders should be opened except by order of the Board.—After a discursive conversation, in the course of which it was pointed out that the committee had opened and tabulated the tenders in order to save time, and that on pre- vious occasions when tenders w<e opened by the Board, they had been referred back to the com- mittee, the motion was agreed to. PASSBNGER TRAFFIC TO PONTYPRIDD. A letter was read from the Pontypridd Local. Board to say that Mr. Leyshon, the chairman of that Board, p.nd Mr. Gordon Lenox, one of the members. had buen appointed to wait on the directors of the Barry Company on Friday, Oct. 7, with regard to having the line between Barry and Pontypridd opened for passenger traffic and to ask the Board to appoint representatives to act with Mr. Leyshon and Mr. Lenox—General Lee, Mr. Jewel Williams, and Mr. W. Thomas (Barry) were appointed. THE PATH PERILOUS. A letter was read from the School Board asking the Local Board to take measures to render a path that led up from Main-street to the Cadoxton. Board Schools more safe for passengers.—The Surveyor said it would be necessary to blast the rock before steps could be put there, and it was doubtful whether steps would be less dangerous than the present path.—The question was referred to the Public Works Committee. THE HOSPITAL ON THE FLAT HOLM. In reply to a letter from the Board asking the Cardiff Corporation to agree to the establishment of a joint hospital for infectious diseases on the Flat Holm, with joint nurses and doctors, a letter was read from the Clerk of the Corporation to the effect that the Corporation was not prepared to fall in with the suggestion, but strongly objected to doing so.-The whole matter was referred back to the Health Committee. THE PROPOSED ACQUISITION OF GAS AND WATER. Messrs. J. Robinson. J. C. Meggitt, General Lee, aad Benjamin Lewis were appointed to attend the public meeting of ratepayers on Friday night at the Public-hall, Thompson-street, Barry Dock, to represent the Board, and to lay before the meeting the reasons that had induced the Board to propose to acquire the undertaking of the Gas and Water Company. „ -r. I Mr. Benjamin Lewis The members of the Board had better attend the meeting of the Young Wales Society to-night to prepare for it. (Laughter). RESIGNATION OF MR. W. E. DAVIES. A letter was read from Mr. W. E. Davies, the surveyor's clerk, giving the Board four weeks' notice, and asking for a testimonial.—Mr. W. Thomas (Barry) proposed that a very good testi- monial be given to Mr. Davies, whom he knew personally, and knew to be an excellent and model young man. (Hear, hear.)-Dr. Treharne seconded, and it was carried unanimously. LICENSES. The following licences were granted :—Petro- leum, W. Pinchin, Chesterfield-street, and W. Abbot, Main-street. Fireworks C. Gwinnet, Thompson-street C. J. Thomas, Thompson-street; Llewellyn Thomas, Island-road D. Jones, Holton- road Mrs. iCa-rolinc A. Webber, Main-street, Mrs. A. Jones. To STORE POWDER The Barry Com- pany. MISCELLANEOUS. On the proposal of Mr. Meggitt, seconded by Mr. W. Thomas (Barry), the plan of Mr. 8. Hopkins' house in Glamorgan-street, Barry, which had been rejected by the Public Works Committee. was pa.ssed.-It was determined, on the instance of Mr. George, to purchase a beam scale, instead of a steelyard (the use of which was declared to be illegal) for the slaughter-house.—It was also de- cided to open the slaughter-house as soon as possible, and to take the caretaker into the Board's employ forthwith.—The Recreation Ground was granted to the Barry and Cadoxton District Foot- ball Teeiin till May next for £ 5.—A letter was I read from Canon Alien urging the Board to put the public road leading to the Parish Church, Barry, in proper repair.—The matter was referred to a sub- committee, composed of Messrs. Meggitt and Thomas (Barry.)—The seal of the Board was affixed to a. loan of £ 100 from the Foresters' Friendly Society, Ramsgate. OL--

SANITATION AT BARRY.
SANITATION AT BARRY. @ LIVELY MEETING OF THE LOCAL BOARD. PROPERTY OWNERS AND THE STAR." COLLAPSE OF THE OPPOSITION. At the meeting of the Local Board, which was held on Tuesday at the Local Board Room, Cadox- ton. Mr. George Thomas moved the resolution of which he had given notice, l; That the resolution passed as to watercloset cisterns be enforced only in such buildings erected since the date of the pass- ing of the said resolution." Before discussing the resolution, another depu- tation of property-owners, consisting of Messrs. D. Gibbon, E. 0. Evans, W. H. Hutchinson, the Rev. G. LI. Williams, and others.-An infiuentially signed memorial had been previously presented, asking the Board to rescind the bye-law compelling all property-owners to put up flushing apparatus in water-closets, on the ground that the bye-law had been adopted when it could not have been enforced, that it had not been enforced when tho Board could have enforced it. and that the old system of flushing was preferable to that proposed by the Board. After a few words from Mr. Gibbon and Mr. E. O. Evans, Dr. O'Donnell asked for the date. or an approximate date, when it had been possible to enforce the bye-law and the Board had not done so.—The deputation were unable to give a precise answer, and the Rev. Griffith Williams said th%t they knew the facts to be as they were stated but could specify no definite date. General Lee otsked what powers the Board had with regard to allowing the law to remain in abeyance for a time. The Clerk answered that the bye-law could be enforced as much against as by the Board, for the Board was expected to deal with the bye-laws ministerially, and not judicially. The Chairman said that the Board had no wish to press unduly on the property-owners, and tho memorial would be duly considered, 'ihe result of the Board's discussion would be communicated to the deputation.—The deputation then withdrew. Mr. George Thomas then formally moved his resolution. He said that most of them were agreed that it was desirable to have the water- closets properly flushed by means of flushing apparatus, but that there were peculiar circum- stances around the question at Barry which called for special treatment. At the time that the bye-law J was adopted, it was im- possible to enforce it, and they had either to drain into cesspools or use earth-closets. The majority of the houses in tho first instance had been sup- plied with earth-closets, which had all been built at the bottom of the gardens. When a proper drainage system had been prepared, tho property- owners made no opposition—though it was within their power—to prevent the turning of the earth-closets into water-closets. The Board at that time, so far from insisting on enforcing their bye-law, joined the iclosets to the mains without I enforcing the putting up of cisterns. No other town in South Wales had dared to attempt to enforce such a bye-law. Neither Cardiff, nor Merthyr, nor Abertlare, B.or Pontypridd—though Cardiff had lately had a new water supply—had ventured to propose the enforcement of such a I bye-law. The Board, in enforcing it, would be but putting up a plaything for every child in a house, and would not improve the drainage system. Was their water service sufficient for the present needs He was greatly afraid that even without this additional tax on its resources it would be inadequate to the requirements of the district. There was at that time a bit of a panic on account of some of the drains but if the drains wanted Hushing they ought to be flushed in the manholes. Tha Board would remedy no defect by enforcing the bye-law. It was not his (Mr. Thomas') custom to allude to what appeared in print, but he thought he ought to make an exception with regard to what had appeared in the South Wales Star on this question. The Star had taken up this question with great warmth, and wan especially wrath that it had been stated that it was the representative of a certain sectiou of the Board. The Star was, of course, entitled to its opinion, like everybody else and its wrath had been roused by the allegation that it was a "mouthpiecG to a certain section of the Board," and it had gone" at every one in consequence. He (the speaker) had been mentioned, among others, as one who represented property-owners on the Board. He saw no sin in advocating the rights of pro- perty-owners, who were voters and electors as well as others. He had. however, tried to consider the interests of the district as well as those of the property-owners. It seemed that the ownership of property was a crime in the eyes of some peoplo, whether the property be a. house or a dock. The Star should be careful before stigmatising men as subordinating the interest of the district to their own selfish interests. (Mr. W. Thomas, Barry, "Hear, hear.") By so doing it cast an aspersion on the whole Board, and it was disgraceful that such a thing should be said. Mr. W. Thomas (Barry) said that he would echo overy word that had been spoken by Mr. Thomas had ho included both local papers. (Laughter.) Mr. J. J. Williams, in seconding Mr. Georgo Thomas' resolution, said that he had. among others, been accused by the Star of having used his position on tha Local Board to further his own interests. He was, however, happy to say—or rather sorry to say—that whatever sin might be laid to his charge, it could not be said of him that he was a large property-owner in the district. With regard to the allegation that he had used his position in tho Board to further his own interests, the words were entirely false. It was not true either to say that ha was an opponent of the bye- law. He had never advocated the repeal of the bye-law, but he was opposed to its arbitrary en- • forcement. It had not been enforced when it might hava been enforced. Dr. O'Donnell: Give tho date. Mr. Williams It could have been enforced in 1891. During the last few years hundreds of houses had changed hands. People had bought houses after seeing the surveyor's certificate, and had thought that nothing more was required to be done to the houses. If the bye-law was to be enforced, it should be enforced irrespective of men or localities and one man should not ba made a acape-goat for -others. The expense in complyinz with the bye-law would be much greater now that the houses had been built, and would press very heavily on owners at the present time. The Chairman said that it was only in February last that the Board could have enforced the bye- law all through the district, but that, at the same time, the Board did not wish to press heavily on property-owners. Mr. J. C. Meggitt said that when it was carried last year that the bye-law should be enforced, the Board had no intention to enforce it harshly. Pro- perty-owners had lately met with very heavy expenses in joining closets to the main sewers and in changing earth into water-closets. He wa.s not prepared either to say or vote that every property- owner should be forced to comply with the bye- law. The Board ought to give them time, especially as it had been said that the water supply might not be sufficient. Mr. Barstow said that all the plans had been passed subject to an understanding that the houses would be built in accordance with the requirements of the bye-law. As the same time, it would be well to give th3 owners time to comply with the bye-law. Mr. Benjamin Lewis said that it was a somewhat remarkable fact that the very peoplo who had put up a flushing apparatus in their houses were the people whose names were first on the memorial. (Laughter.) It had been said that the expenses on the owners had lately been heavy. He remembered the time when the rants as well had been very heavy—-(laughter)—and the owners of the old' houses were bettor able to comply with the bye- law than the owners of new houses that had never had a tenant in them. He was sorry that Mr. Thomas had muddled up the Board and the Press in the way he did. If one part of the Board was connected with one paper, another part of the Board was connected with the other paper. The question, he considered, was an urgent one, as the highest medical authorities had said that it was probable that next year the cholera might visit this country. He thought, therefore, that they ought to have no defect in their sanitary arrange- ments. He would, therefore, move that The owners bo allowed till May, 1893, to put in flush- ing- apparatus." Dr. O'Donnell, in seconding, said that he was surprised to find that one of the first names on the memorial was that of a firm which the LocalEoarù had gone to some extra expense in order to connect, their closets with the main sewers. It had been overlooked what had brought the bye-law pronii- nently before the notice of the Board, viz., the Medical Officer's report in October of last year, which had been subsequently confirmed by Mr. Walker. The Health Committee had from the first time possible insisted on the enforcement of the bye-law. In August, 1891, it had recommended the Board to do this, but it was only in November that it had succeeded in carrying' its point with the Board. The Health Committee, however, had no wish to enforce the bye-law harshly or arbi- trarily, and, indeed, the very fact that it had moved so gradually in the matter since last November proved that it had no wish to be unduly severe. If, however, as had been said, the water supply was insufficient, then the Company should not charge for water in those houses where it was not at present used for flushing cisterns. In order to show that the Health Committee had no wish to act harshly in the matter, he begged to second Mr. Lewis' amendment. General Lee said he would vote both against the resolution and the amendment, because the Board had no power to pass such a resolution. The Board had no option but to enforce its bye-laws, though it was within their power to deal with individual cases. Dr. Treharne I think the Board should not go against the bye-laws, though I am of opinion that time should be granted. That could be done with- out a formal resolution. Mr. George Thomas said he had no desire to divide the Board on the matter if a reasonable con- cession were made. Dr. O'Donnell: May I ask your indulgence to deal with a personal matter. It has been hinted that I am connected with the Star. I wish to say that I exercise no manner of control The Chairman Order, order. Dr. O'Donnell Mr. George Thomas was allowed to speak on the matter, and I wish-- The Chairman I call you to order. Mr. B. Lewis That's the other paper. (Laughter.) Dr. O'Donnell: Very well, sir. All I wished to say was that Mr. George Thomas exercises much more control over the JJarry Dock New-? than I do over the Mr. W. Thomas (Barry) I'm glad to see some- body else having it now. I am generally the scape- goat. (Laughter.) In answer to a question, the Chairman said that the bye-law had been strictly enforced in all houses built during the last two or three months. Mr. B. Lewis' amendment was then put, and carried, General Lee alone voting against it. The following voted for it J. Robinson, Meggitt, Benjamin Lewis, O'Donnell, J. J. Wil- liams. J. Barstow. and W. Thomas (Sully). Messrs. George Thomas, Treharne, and W. Thomas (Barry) did not voce.—On the amendment being put as a substantive motion, it was carried, the voting being the same as before. <>
LOSS OF A BARRY-LADEN STEAMER.
LOSS OF A BARRY-LADEN STEAMER. The crew of twenty-four of the large steamship Camiola. of Newcastle, bound from Barry to Malta, with 3,400 tons of coal, were landed at Penzance on Saturday evening, their vessel having founded after striking a reef of rocks olf the Seven Stones Light- ship the same morning. The Camiola, which belongs to Messrs. Chapman aud Miller, of Newcastle, left Barry on Friday morning, and shortly before six on Saturday morning, when in charge of the first officer, Mr. Davidson, and in clear weather, she struck the Seven Stones, and a tremendous rent was made in the bows. In a short time the fore part filled with water, and orders were given by Captain Storey to lower the two lifeboats, but' it was found that the fittings had be0011.1e rusty. The ropes and blocks would not work, and the chains and ropes had to be severed by sheer brute force before the boats could be got off. This operation took from half to three- quarters of an hour, and before the boats had got a hundred yards the crew saw the stern of the vessel rear up on end, and she sank immediately. One of the crew jumped overboard and was rescued with difficulty. The crew were taken on board the lightship, and subsequently removed to Penzance by the Trinity steamer. Tho crew and officora have lost all their effects. On arriving at Penzanco the crew were taken charge of by M r. Ludlow, agent of the Shipwrecked Mariners' Society. A number of men who formed the craw of the ill- fated steamer Camiola (Captain Storey), belonging to Messrs. Chapman aud Miller, of Newcastle, and which foundered after striking a reef of rocks off the Seven Stones Lightship, near Penzance on Saturday morning, arrived at Barry Dock on Sun- day night. After making inquiries and finding where some of the men resided, a Press representa- tive succeeded in obtaining the following particu- lars from a fireman named James Dempsey, and F. Holmquist, a Swede, the man at the wheel. The former said I was employed as fireman on board the s.s. Camiola when she started from Barry Dock on Friday morning. We were going to Malta with a eargo of coal. She was loaded with 3,394 tons, her register tonnage being 1,459 tons. Everything went on quite smoothly until about ten minutes to six on Saturday morning. I was below following my duties as fireman when I heard the vessel strike, and 1 was thrown for t some yards on my back. I said to my mate, What is the matter and he said, It is all right.' I then got up on deck as quickly as I could, and saw one of my comrades with a buoy round his waist. I looked forward to see what was the matter, and I saw the ship sinking by the head. I stood for a few minutes, when I heard the captain give orders, to lower the boats. The crew then got the star- boat out, and the third engineer, cook, and two A.B.'s got in and cut the painter. She then gradually drifted away, and there were 19 men left on the port side, getting out the lifeboat. With great difficulty we got the lifeboat out. and all the men got in, the captain giving orders to pull off as quickly as possible, in order to get clear of the suction. When we had pulled about 90 or 100 yards away I observed the steamer taking a list" to the starboard, and she sank, head first This was about two and a half miles south-west of the Seven Stones Lightship, and the time was, as "near as possible, ten minutes past six on Saturday morning. We landed at the lightship about three- quarters of an hour later. We were at the light- ship till five in the evening, when the Trinity boat took us ashore. There the Mariners' Shipwreck Society took charge of us, showed us every hospitality, and provided us with means to get home. The steamer, when she struck, was going at the rate of between nine and ten knots an hour." F. Holmquist said he was a native of Sweden, and was 25 years of age. When the boat left Barry Doci on Friday morning he was at the wheal; When they sighted Land's End, about 20 minutes to six, he left the wheel to get some re- freshments, and as he was returning the boat struck the rocks and showed signs of "settling down." In a few minutes afterwards the boilers burst and she sank, forehead first. Several of the men called at the dock office during the day and were attended ty Mr. R. T. Duncan, the local agent of the Mariners' Society. The local agents of the Camiola are Messrs. Robner aud Co., of Bute Docks, Cardiff.

DANGERS OF SPORT.
DANGERS OF SPORT. -— IMPORTANT TO FOOTBALLERS AND CYCLISTS. INSURE AGAINST RISK! Some time ago a 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 will be paid the sum of £ 5, 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 AXD STREET ACCIDENTS. This Coupon Insurance will also cover all accidents which may happen to the owner of the current SOCTH 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 1S30 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 enthusiasm which it invokes in these districts, the circumstance that our insurance coupon pro- vides also for the v I INSURANCE OF PLAYERS of this game cannot fail to command cordial ap- proval. It is noteworthy that football risks have ordi- narily been regarded byrccident 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 anv Accident Company, but is in audition 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 expression only more so," and the same benefits are extended to cyclists as to football players.

Date, rjlONTINE rtSSURANCE. THE great obstacle to the universal adoption of Life Assurance amongst salaried officials is the fact that in most offices premiums remain payable during the whole period of life, long after the productive years have passed, thus becoming a serious burden, whilst, at the same time, the surrender value are so entirely disproportionate K) i.lie t paid as premium that payment can only be discontinued at very serious loss. For instance, persons who are entitled to retire with pensions from their employment constantly find them- selves obliged to remain at their posts, being otherwise unable to provide from their lessened income the neeeseary sum for the maintenance of their whole life policies. These obstacles are overcome by the Tontine I Policies issued at ordinary life rates by the EQUITABLE LIb'E ASSURANCE SOCIETY OF THE UNITED STATES. The Society's Policies, with Twenty Year Tontine Periods now maturing, show (after furnishing protec- tion for twenty years) a return in every case of more than the total amount paid in premiums. All Twenty Year Endowments show a return of the premium paid, with interest at rates between C and 7 per cent. per annum.
