LOCAL NOTES. — THE PURCHASE OF THE GAS AND WATER WO-iKS. We are able to announce this week the .sum which the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board have offered the Gas and Water Company for their undertaking. It is £ 130,000 and, moreover, it is made without prejudice. The amount is at the first blush a larger one than some people expected. Still it must be remem- bered that businesses of this description are not bought for a trifle, and that the tendency is when a public body acquires them to increase the cost as much as possible. From the fact that the Board have decided to offer this sum it is evident that the works are worth it. The Board had the assistance of skilled advisers, and it is evident that the proposed purchase has been viewed from every point of the compass. The amount so confidently stated at the last ratepayers' meeting, viz., £ 150,00(7, was I certainly preposterous. A reduction of more than one-seventh brings it within reasonable bounds, and the ratepayers generally will not cavil at it. Those who have the interests of the district at heart will consequently assist the members all they can by getting signatures to the petition in favour of the Bill which is now being circulated. The more signatures there are the better will be its chances of success, even though it is unopposed, in its progress 11 p through the House of Commons. THE LOCAL BOARD AND ITS EMPLOYEES. The admonishing of the steam-road rollerman caused a little sensation at the meeting of the Board. The real cause of the trouble was that Palmer accidentally, or otherwise, took the engine into another street, and on his return smashed a portion of the granolithic pave- ment in Castle-street. The Public Works Committee being satisfied that this was done- carelessly, severely admonished him, and it was thought that. the rfntfcer would drop. But no The question of the cost bad to be considered, and to which account should it be charged. That, on the face of it, is an easy query. The damage being done by one of the Board's workmen, the Board, of course, would have to pay it, seeing that they were the responsible parties. The Committee decided that it should be credited to the private improvements account, and hence there was a short and sharp discussion. Mr. George Thomas objected that it was illegal. That was fair criticism but did he not trangress the limits of debate by saying that the. proposition was "dishonest?" However, the matter was amicably settled, and another storm in a tea- cup'' ended, satisfactorily. The ratepayers, however, will-be glad tj learn from Mr. Thomas that the roller, unless there are accidents, will pay for itself. There have been some captious critics who have urged that it was a "white elephant." Why, it is hard to see because it is a necessity in the first place and, secondly, the amount raised by lending it promises to be not inconsiderable. THE PROPOSED CATTLE MARKET. Mr. Williams Thomas (Barry) deserves the thanks of the community for h is endeavours to establish a weekly cattle market at Cadoxton. The case he put before the Board was not marred by promising too much he wisely refrained from this, a by no means unusual proceeding. The cattle market if it is held should be a decided success, i.e. if the promoters set to work in the right manner. Cadoxton is within easy range of the agricultural districts, and it would inevitably be an easy matter for farmers and others to bring their stock here. In other centres these markets have been an unalloyed success. Mistakes have' been made in charging too high rents, but the committee who has been appointed by the Local Board are not the men to strand a barque on that rock. They will do all they can to make it a success, and the scheme when propounded should meet with the earnest approval of those mostly interested. It would seem that the proposal may be contested, viewed by the remarks of the President of the Barry Chamber of Trade. Mr. Alexander is naturally anxious to keep down the expenses of a public body in the present depressed state of trade, but we have yet to find that the market will be a failure. Until the Committee report upon it, it is injudicious to criticise. THE TECHNICAL EDUCATION SCHEME. Both the School Board and the Local Board have decided to postpone the consideration of the scheme of the Charity Commissioners until w- their next meeting. A careful consideration of the proposed Act shows that there are not many loopholes for criticism. The most important of all is certainly the representation of the two bodies named. The School Board are entitled to two members, and the Local Board to only one. This re- presentation is scarcely adequate. The Barry School Board, as the people most vitally inte- rested, deserve, nay should command, an extra member. In the discussion which will take place at the various meetings of the two bodies, we trust that this point will be fully considered. The more members the Boards have the better it will be for the educational needs of the district. Barry will undoubtedly reap great advantages from the Welsh Intermediate Edu- cation Act, and now is the time to secure a just1 fair, and proper representation. AFTER THE STORM A CALM. The meeting of the School Board this week was as unruffled as the sea after a storm. The previous meeting appeared to have used up all the energies of the members, and they had evi- dently determined that, for the present, there should be a suspension of hostilities. There was a great deal to be said in favour of this policy. It is not., always wise to be quar- relling, or else the public might term it the bickering Board." Then there was the gratify- ing intelligence to be announced, that the report of the Government inspector was decidedly favourable to the schools, and that the grant was exceedingly good. The only breeze that did occur was on the question of contracts, but it was of such a slight nature that there were no possible grounds for a long debate. THE EFFICIENCY OF THE SCHOOLS. Considering the large amount of money which has been expended upon the various schools in the Barry district, it would be heartrending to all who wish them success if there were any grave causes for complaint. The Government Inspector's report is on the whole decidedly gratifying. The grant earned is no less a sum than f 1,595, and this has been gained by the scholars winning the excellent grant in- several departments. The boys in each of the schools appear to have been the best scholars, their of "excellent" being larger than that of the girls. But this does not prove that the girls are backward. The experience of those who have been pupil teachers is that as a general rule the girls are the most apt scholars, and that with the exercise of a little care and patience wonders can be worked. It would be invidious to say that the headmistresses and the teachers have been behindhand in their efforts,, seeing, especially that the health of one has suffered from hard work. But that generous, rivalry which we know actuates all the masters and mistresses of each school in the kingdom, and in Wales especially, is certain to make them continue to strive in the future. And the more likely is this bo be the case now that the Board have practically committed themselves to a proposal that their ,own teachers shall have the preference whenever a vacancy arises. That the schools will rank amongst the highest of their class in the kingdom is the earnest wish of the Board and its friends, and the masters and mistresses and teachers are just the servants to help them in their laudable endeavour. PRINTING- CONTRACTS.—WHY PER FOLIO ? Dr. Treharne deserves the thanks of his fellow-members. That the minutes should be printed prior to the meeting of the Board is a, postulate which even the most rigid upholder of economy by public bodies would scarcely deny. The advantages, as Dr. O'Donnell pertinently pointed out, are obvious. It is impossible to keep in the head the proceedings of a committee which are rapidly, though distinctly, read by the Clerk, unless each member has been taught a memory system. And even these systems are not infallible Then there is the danger that the Board may render themselves ridiculous by discussing again a subject which has already been disposed of. To do this is doubtless the source of much enjoyment to the outside publi6, but it is scarcely fair to the members of the Board, whose duties are by no means so light as some people think they are. But now that the Board have come to this decision it is somewhat strange that they should have 'decided that the printing should be contracted for per folio. A jobbing office is not regulated by the same rules as a legal office neither are the costs. The Barry and Cadoxton Local Board have their work done per sheet, and it would have been better if the School Board had followed suit. If the School Board adhere to their resolution, we are afraid that they will find the cost heavier than they anticipate- unless, indeed, the firms in the district are worked on philanthropic lines. A BOMBSHELL (?) Dr. Livingstone's notice of motion will not cause much surprise in the district. Ugly rumours have been floating around during the past few days relative to the appointments made by the Boar 1, and it has been distinctly asserted that it was nonsensical to advertise for candi- dates when the majority had made up their minds who was to be the lucky candidate. Whether there is any foundation for these assertions it is impossible to say, as the meetings of the School Management Committee are held in camera. But if the assertion be correct, there is certainly no need to advertise, for it means a. waste of money. Dr. Livingstone's motion, therefore, if it be passed, would put an end to these tales of my grandfather which are so frequently circulated. That the Board will refuse to sanction it is unlikely, seeing that now they are practically pledged to the spirit, if not to the exact language of the resolution. BARRY TRADES' COUNCIL. It is gratifying to find that the Trades" Council for Barry and the district are moving with the times. They have now decided that in future their meetings shall be repo-ted, and that the old policy of keeping everything to themselves shall be abandoned. The Council # i
