Lowdon presided, and there were also present Mr. Benjamin Lewis. Dr. Lloyd Edwards. Capt. Davies, Dr. Treharne, Rev. J. Price, Mr. Lewis (clerk), Mr. Treharne Rees (assistant clerk). THE FINANCE COMMITTEE'S REPORT. The report of the Finance Committee was read by the Clerk as follows Letters were read from the secretary tn the" For- midable and from Bishop Brown's Industrial School, stating that no payments were received by them from tfte parents of boys on account of their maintenance, as these payments were enforced by the Treasury, and received by them. That in future tenders be asked for the supply ot firewood from local firms, stating price per cwt. That the question of the increase of salaries cf teachers be considered by the Board at the next; meet- ing. and not by this committee. That 'local firms tendering for the printing of minutes be asked to tender in the same manner as tenders were asked by the Local Board for similar kinds of work. The estimates for requisitions from head teacners were considered, and it was resolved to recommend that the Board advertise for tenders in the local papers for the supply of books, stationery, etc., and also obtain prices from. a few large firms. That sundry accounts and salaries, amounting to £ 502 10s., be paid. The following list of the accounts were submitted for consideration and recommended to the Board for payment :—F. E.

Price) proposed, and Dr. Edwards seconded the adoption of the report, and this was agreed to. THE SCHOOL MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE. IMPORTANT DECISION AS TO CORPORAL PUNISH- MiSNT. The report of the School Management Committee was read as follows The following report of the sub-committee, consist- ing of Mr. J. Lowdon, Dr. Edwards, Dr. Livingstone, Captain Davies, and Mr. R.T. Rees (deputy clerk), as to corporal punishment was adopted The com- mittee recommend that power to inflict corporal punish- ment be extended to the certificated assistants, but that the head teachers in each sthools so for as possible see that this power is not abused, and if in their opinion an assistant appears to be using this power unwisely or unjustly they may withdraw it and report the fact to the School Management Committee. That the instrument used may either be a light cane, or leather strap, or tawse (the latter preferred.) That under no circumstances shall a teacher strike a, child on any part of the head, either with the hand or any instrument whatever. The Sub-committee also considered the question as to whether some of the uncertificated assistants who by reason of length of service and steadiness of character rmight be recommended by their head teachers, should -also have punishment powers, but did not come to any decision on this point. If the School Management Committee agree with these views the Chairman suggests the following circulars might be printed and circulated among the .school staff:- Barry (U.D.) School Board. Circular to Teachers as to Corporal Punishment. The Board have decided to extend the power to -inflict corporal punishment to the certificated assistants on their staff. They earnestly hope that this privilege will not be abused, and that the assistants to whom this Dower is now giveu will bear in mind that an efficient teacher who has carefully prepared his or her work should and will, as a rule, so interest their pupils that discipline and attention will be easily maintained, and that the rod should not be considered the single panacea for every difficulty which arises, but should be the last resort of a really good teacher, and that a care- ful and intelligent study of each member of their class should be .made, so when punishment has to be administered it may only be given to those who are fit to bear it. It is well understood that at the present day there are in every school some children who from the nervous excitability of their temperament are physically unfit for any form of punishment, and who Buffer even more from a harsh word than others do from a severe caning. Many complaints reach the Board from time to time of children beino- struek on the head or their ears boxed, both of which are most dangerous and utterly wrong modes of punishment. Henceforth no teachers shall under any circumstances be permitted to strike any child on any part of the head either with the hand or any instru- ment whatever, and it is to be distinctly understood that the breaking of this regulation renders the teacher liable to instant dismissal. The instrument to be used for punishment may be .either the leather etrap or a light cane, the former pre- ferred. „ The head teachers taust approve of the instrument uiled, and may withdraw the power of punishment from .a.ny assistant who may use it unwisely or unjustly. That all complaints by parents should in the first instance be made to the head teacher, and investigated by him or her, and. reported to the Bye-laws Com- mittee, and a record of such complaint kept. That a pupil teacher be appointed for each depart- ment of the schools (General Lee and Mr. Rees voting against on the ground of the method of training pupil teachers without the necessary training classes). That the question of establishing central classes for pupil teachers be considered at the next meeting. Requisitions for books, stationery, &c., were con- sidered and allowed. That the requisition for cookery utensils for Barry Schools when ready ba submitted to Capt. Davies for ^Tha^a piano be ordered for Barry Girls' School. That the application of Miss Wilcox for an assistant 'in the place of Miss S. A. Evans be referred to the Visiting Committee. That the salary of Miss M. J. Morgan be increased "bv Y,5 on account of her havingiher D certificate. That the application of Miss A. M. Wood for additional staff for the new girls' school be deferred for ■further consideration. Miss J. S. Fleming reported that Miss Phillips, an assistant in her department, had met with an accident during her holiday which would unfit her for duties for the next three weeks. L Mr. Lowdon moved the adoption or tne report.— sDr. Treharne seconded, and the motion was agreed to. THE BYE-LAWS COMMITTEE. The Bye-Laws Committee reported as follows :— That Captain Davies has been elected Chairman of the Committee. i The committee have had before them three parents, and have authorised six prosecutions. The Attendance Officer's report was considered. That a month's notice be given to the caretaker of Cadoxton Board School. That the Board advertise in the local papers for a new caretaker for the same. That Mrs. Goode. of Barxv, be appointed temporary caretaker of the new Girls' School, Barry, at 12s. per That the architects be directed to provide a coal- house for the new girls' school, and to put right fthe neW chimney of the master's house, which does not draw. That the committee recommend the Board to pro- vide a coalhouse for the master's house at Barry SCThat the opening from the girls' playground of the Barry School to the laundry side be railed. That it be instructions to the head teachers that no pictures or papers of any kind be pasted to the walls of the schoolrooms, Ac. The report was adopted on the motion of Capt. Davies, seconded by the Rev. J. Price. Dr. Treharne moved that Mrs. Goode be appointed the permanent caretaker of the Barry Girls' School. Dr. Edwards seconded, and the motion was a~Th<f Chairman suggested that the matter of the appointment of a caretaker for the Cadoxton School should be left in the hands of the Cadoxton members as they lived on the spot, and knew the Cadoxton people better than they did. They had had a caretaker who was paid 8s. per week, and the work was done terribly bad. It had been suggested that there was too much worn for one person, and the members should be given power to appoint two caretakers if necessary. He would moved a resolution to that effect.-Rev. J. Price seconded.—Dr. Treharne thought it would be advisable to leave the matter in the hands of the Bye-laws Committee. It was a. matter that came within their province.-Ultimately it was decided on the proposition of the Chairman that the matter should be referred to the Bye-laws' Com- mittee. The question of the coalhouse for the master's house was considered.—Captain Davies thought it was a very small matter to have an architect for.—- Dr. Treharne said the plans must be passed by the Local Board.—The Chairman said they had a list of people who were willing to work for them, and they could ask them to send in a plan and state- ment, then they could submit the plan they most approved of to the Board, and thus get over the difficulty. He would propose that this be done.- Dr. Edwards said there were no masons on their list.-Dr. Treharne seconded, and this was agreed to. THE INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL SCHEME. The Chairman remarked that, as he had said before, he had no.objection to it with one excep- tion. The educational authorities were not suffi- ciently represented. He thought the School Board should have a larger representation than they had. Some of the Boards in the Aberdare district had met together, and formulated a series of objections, and they asked that Board to co- operate with them, and send two delegates to a meeting shortly to be held. The Clerk then read the letter received, which was as follows Town Hall, Aberdare, 28th January, 1893 Dear Sir.—At the meetings of the Local Board and School Board for the district of the parish of Aberdare, held on the 27th January, 1893, a series of resolutions were passed respecting the draft scheme of the Charity Commissioners for intermediate and technical instruc- tion for the county of Glamorgan, a copy of which we beg to enclose you herewith:- It was also unanimously agreed that a.ll public boards in the county, interested in the scheme, be asked to support the above amendments, and that they be invited tol a conference of all the said Boards, to be held at the Gwyn-hall, Neath, on Wednesday, the 15th February, 1893, at 11.30 a.m. Each Board to appoint two members to attend the conference. Our Boards feel that a united action will be far more effective with the commissioners than an individual resolution or suggestions. Will you kindly lay these before your Board at the earliest passible date, and inform us whether you will nominate two representatives to attend ths above suggested conference. As time is pressing we trust you wili give us an ea.rly date. We are, dear Sir, Yours faithfully, THOMAS PHILLIPS, Clerk to the Aberdare Local Board. JOHN MOURIS. Clerk to the Aberdare School Board, The Clerk also read out several sections and clauses which ths Abedare conference would seek to alter. The Chairman faid there was one matter he strongly objected to alter the clause with reference to the power given the head niascers in the scheme. He did not for one moment agree with the Aber- dare Board that the power should be taken away from the headmasters. Dr. Treharne' agreed wi £ h the Chairman with reference to the power of the headmasters. Dr. Edwardo did not agree with the recom- mendations of the Aberdare Board. The master should have entire control, as intermediate schools were different from elementary schools in their constitution. The master should have entire con- trol. He did not agree with a fixed sum being given, as it was usual for the capitation grant to be given to the master. lie agreed with the chairman that the educational authority ought to have more than one-sixth part of the representa- tion, they being the only educational body in this district. He could not agree with-the limit of age to 17 years. In their scheme for Barry it was par- ticularly mentioned that they should teach naviga- tion and mathematics. Captain Davies would, he knew, agree with him that some boy might want to learn that after the age of 17 years; and, therefore, that was one point why they ought not to limit the age to 17. The boys were rather backward there, owing to not having many scholastic advantages, and they ought to have a little more latitude. There was another thing they were not allowed to teach Greek. The scheme distinctly stated that Greek should be taught in the Bridgend, Penarth, and Neath district. To teach Greek at Barry they must have the word Ba.rry before Penarth in the scheme. The Chairman said there was this to be said: this was a small school, and they could not go in for a very wide range of subjects—that was the difficulty. He agreed, however, that the limit of age was to low. That and the representation of the School Board were the only points to which he took exception. Captain Davies agreed with the Chairman's re- marks. Dr. Treharne thought they ought to have power over the head-teachers. Dr. Edwards said they had that power. Dr. Treharne thought not; the former rested with the County Council. Dr. Edwards remarked that according to the Charity Commissioners' scheme the headmasters. were appointed, and dismissed by their committtee, the only difference being there must be a six months' notice given by a majority of two-thirds of the committee, and that notice confirmed at another meeting by a majority of two-thirds. Captain Davies moved that the Board approve of the scheme, with the exception of the limit of age and the number of representatives allowed the School Board. Dr. Edwards seconded. The Chairman suggested that the limit of age should be raised to 20 years. Rev. J. Price asked why they should settle things definitely and tie themselves down as to how far they agreed ? Dr. Treharne thought it would be advisable to appoint a deputation to represent the Board at the Conference. He took it there would be no diffi- culty about the amount of expenses. The Chairman said it was outside the limits of the School Board. Dr. Treharne moved that the Rev. J. Price and Dr. Lloyd Edwards be appointed the deputation. This was agreed to. It was also decided to suspend further discus- sion until after they had heard the report of the deputation. THE GOVERNMENT REPORTS. The report of H.M. Inspector was futher dis- cussed. but it was decided to ask the Press not to publish the discussion. Several motions were proposed with regard to the advance to be made the headteachers, but ultimately on the proposi- tion of Capt. Davies, seconded by Dr. Lloyd Edwards, it was decided that no extra advance be made only the automatic one stated in the scheme. ADVANCES FOR THIS ASSISTANTS. The Chairman read an application from Mr. Whitehouse for an advance. Mr. Whitehouse was one of the ablest teachers they had, and he was thoroughly entitled to this advance.—Captain Davies had great pleasure in proposing that the advance be made. Much of the success of the school was due to Mr. Whitehouse.—Dr. Treharne protested against any comparison being made be- tween the teachers; they had all worked-exceed- ingly well.—It was decided that Mr. Whitehouse should be granted the advance asked for. An application from Miss Morgan was referred to the School Management Committee. An application from Mr. Siidmerson was also referred to the School Management Committee. Mr. Ewbank wrote, saying that he had passed his "D" examination last Octobor, and applying for an increase accordingly.—Rev. J. Price pro- posed, and Dr. Edward seconded, that the applica- tion be granted, and this was agreed to. NEW MOTION. Captain Davies said he had been requested by Dr. Livingstone to move a motion of which he had given notice at the last meeting :-That if any vacancies should occur in their teaching staff the Board should consider the advisability of pro- moting any one on their own staff, but that if application be advertised for, all the applicants should stand on the same footing.—Mr. Lewis seconded, and this was agreed to. THE PRINTING OF THE MINUTES. Tenders were opened for the printing of the the minutes of the Board, and Mr. Lewis Evans was found to be the lowest.-Dr. Treharne moved that Mr. Evans' tender be accepted.—Mr. Benjamin Lewis seconded, and this was agreed to. THE BOARD'S TRADESPEOPLE. The Clerk read a list of persons who had sent in their names to do work for the Board.—The list was adopted. MISCELLANEOUS. The Chairman mentioned that Mr. Rees was very pressed for an ex-P.T. in the Barry Boys' School. F. Stock was able to come at once, and he engaged him, and he now asked the Board to con- firm his action.—This was done.—Mr. Higman needed a teacher for Standard I., and he had sanctioned Miss Williams, of the Barry School, going to Holton Schools.—This action was con- firmed.-A communication was read from the Educational Department approving of the plans of the Romilly-road Infant School, which will pro- vide accommodation for 257 infants.-As several teachers and ex-P.T's are required shortly, it was decided that the headteachers should discuss the matter with the Chairman, who should report to a special meeting of the Board to be held on the 18th, when the deputation to the Aberdare Con- ference will also report on the result of the con- ference. NOTICES OF MOTION. Dr. Lloyd Edwards gave notice that at the next z, meeting of the Board he would move that Welsh be adopted as a Specific Subject in the schools of the Board, and that steps be taken, to teach this subject where practicable. Dr. Lloyd Edwards also gave notice of motion, on behalf of Mr. J. Rees, that the Clerk be in- structed to make a return of all trained and un- trained assistant teachers employed in each school under the Board.
"BARRY AND DISTRICT TRADES…
"BARRY AND DISTRICT TRADES COUNCIL. THE RATEPAYERS' INTERESTS CONSIDERED. The ordinary fortnightly meeting of the above Council was held at the Victoria Hotel, Barry Dock, last Friday evening-. Mr. Ivor Thomas (President of the Barry Typographical Section) in the chair. There were also present :—Mr. T. S. Thomas, H. Davies, R. Dunsford, T. Henson, T. Dyke, S. Rendell, J. C. Prince, T. Hale, J. Murray, J. Wheaton, J. Lovering, C. Tutton, and J. Rees (secretary).—The roll having been. called, and the minutes of the previous meeting confirmed, a letter was read from Mr. J. Murray (secretary of the Smiths-Hammermen Society) stating that Mr. C. Tutton had been appointed one of the represen- tatives on the Council, in place of Mr. H. Hunt, who had resigned. <, SCHOOL BOARD. Mr. Rees was then called upon to give his School Board report. The worthy member con- sulted the Council as to the attitude he should take with regard to Dr. Livingstone's motion on the agenda, which was to the effect that all School Board servants would, when applying for positions under the Board, have preference over outsiders. —The Council, considering that tried servants were preferable to strangers, instructed its member to support it.—Mr. H. Davies asked Mr. Rees whether it was correct that the site for the pro- posed new schools at Barry had been changed also when would the building be proceeded with ? —To the former query, the member stated that he was not aware that any change of site had taken place. With regard to Dr. O'Donnell's motion that no member be allowed to sit on more than two committees of the Board, it was decided to allow Mr. Rees freedom of action in the matter.—The Secretary then read a list of employers seeking work under the Board.—The Council classified them as follows :— CARPENTERS AND JOINERS. Fair.—Mr. Gilead Brock, Morel-street Mr. Charles Davies, Barry-road Mr. David Griffiths, Hill Top Mr. David Hamer, Newland-etreet Mr W. C. James, Treharne-road. SMITHS. Fair.—Mr. Thomas Evans, Old Village, Cadox- ton and Mr. W. Leaker, Morel-street. PAINTERS AND DECORATORS. Fair.—Mr. A. H. Bletzo, Robert-street; Mr. W. Kerslake, High-street, Barry; Messrs. Morgan. Brothers, Vere-street, Cadoxton Mr. George Speke, Sea View-crescent, Barry; and Mr. F. W. Taylor, Aberthaw-terrace, Barry. PLUMBERS. Fair.—Mr. H. P. Jones, Travis-street, Barry Dock, and Messrs. Morgan Brothers, Cadoxton. Messrs. Morgan Brothers were classified as fair employers only on condition that they would be able to prove to Mr. T. S. Thomas (whom the Council deputed to wait upon them) that they paid fair wages, and observed Trades' Union customs. A spirited discussion took place on the merits and demerits of the various applicants for work. BURIAL BOARD. A detailed account was given by Mr. Rees of the work of the last Burial Board meeting. The pro- posed purchase of land by the Board, as well as the registration fees, were minutely dealt with, and it was decided that the matter be left to the discre- tion of the four Labour members of the Board. THE SUPPER. All details in connection with the suppsr to commemorate Mr. Rees' return to the School Board were made known. It was stated that the number of tickets sold had net. been up to the Council's anticipation. Undoubtedly, the severe depression in trade mainly accounted for this fact. The toast list was then arranged, which occupied considerable time. Mr. England (of Cardiff) arranged to represent the Cardiff Trades' Council on the occasion. BROTHERS IN DISTRESS. A communication was read from the Bristol Trades' Council seeking financial help during the unpleasant striks now waging.-The matter was deferred. This brought to a close a lively and exceptionally long meeting.

THE INFLUENCE OF DRINK.—At the Penarth Police Court on Monday, George Baker, seaman, was charged with stealing a reefer coat, value 108., the property of Messrs. Samuel Bros., of Barry Dock, on Saturday evening last.—Phillip Mewmark, manager for Samuel Bros., Barry Dock, said about seven o'clock on Saturday evening, the boy came into the shop, and said that someone was meddling with a coat. He looked out and missed a coat. The coat which had been stolen was a reefer, and hung outside the shop, and the coat produced was the one missed. From what he was told, he went into the dock. He saw prisoner there walking along quietly with the coat on his back. He charged him with stealing the coat, which he said he bought at Liverpool. He gave prisoner into custody. In the breast pocket he found a price ticket he put there.—Sergeant Evans, stationed at Barry, said that about 7.30 the prosecutor brought the prisoner to the station,' in company with Dock- constable Light, and charged him with stealing the coat. which prisoner was wearing. He searched the coat, and found a ticket in the pocket. He charged prisoner with stealing the coat, and cautioned him, and prisoner then said he had bought the coat in Liver- pool. Prisoner was under the influence of drink, but could talk all right, and knew what he was doing.- Prisoner was fined 25s., or fourteen days' imprison- ment.

The order was made at that court in 1833, and defendant had paid into the court since nearly £ 150. Rees was a man in a. good position, and his average earnings as a first- class Channel pilot were about £ 250 orf,300 a. year. The father was now dead.—Order made for the amount claimed with costs.
REVIEWS. ■" 0. THE POLITICAL CALENDAR, 1893, is the very appropriate title given to an exceedingly pretty almanac published by The Meisenbach Company (Limited) West Norwood, London, S.E. In the centre is a magnificent engraving from the coloured supplement to the Lady's Pictorial Christmas number, entitled" Queen, of Flowers." It is a fine example of Monochrome re-production from paintings, and gives a most accurate repre- sentation of the picture- as regards the colour value in light and shade. The border consists of over 600 portraits of the members of the present Parliament, and, although six portraits could be covered wito a threepenny bit, the features of our legislators are remarkably distinct and clear. At each of the corners of the calendar, which is an unique specimen of the process of engraving, appears a portrait of the leaders of the Liberal and Conservative Party. The Right Hon. W. E. Gladstone occupies the left hand top corner, while Lord Salisbury the right hand. Lord Rosebury is favoured with the left hand bottom corner, and faces the Right Hon. A. J. Balfour, M.P. In addition to the above we have received from the same firm a beautifully finished reproduction of the picture Rival Belles," from the coloitred supplement of the Illustrated, London Neios," together with an engraving from a wash drawing black and white, which also appeared in that journal. In both instances the fine grain quality of the Meirsenbach process of engraving is apparent to all, and are really works of art.

FOOTBALL. — Reports for this column must be received- not later than Tuesday afternoon to appear in the current week's issue. PENARTH V. ABERAVON. This match was played at Penarth before a small number of spectators in dull, raw weather. The following were the teams:—Penarth: Back. J. Tanner three-quarterbacks, H. Kirby, R. M. Garrett, H. E. Morgan, and H. G. Alexander half-backs, G. W. Shepherd and W. G. Lambert forwards, G-. Matthews, 43. Ellis, P. Jackson, J. Lawday, W. Gibbs, R. W. Stoddart, G. Brown, and T. Hutchings. Aber- avon Back, Rees Lewis three-quarter bocks, T. S. Roberts, D. S. James, Rees Howeiis, and J. Hey wood: half-backs, R. D. Seaway and R. H. John; for- wards: Ivor C. Bansey, W. Howeiis, T. Jones, T. Rees, D. Rowlands, E. Evans, and E. A. Thomas. Referee, Mr. W. E. Jarman, Cardiff F.C. Abcravon kicked off against the wind, and, no return being, made, scrambling play at once took place in the Pcnal.th half. By dint of hard work the visitors took the ball up to the home line, but the home forwards broke away and somewhat relieved the pressure. Abcravon ob- tained a free, and Lewis made an excellent attempt at- goal. Garrett got away, and, passing to Alexander, the latter placed the visitors on the defensive in their own 25 by kicking into touch. Exciting loose play followed, in which the Aberavon boys worked back to the centre. Penarth here obtained a free, and the return having failed, the bail was sent into touch at the Aberavon 25. Kirkby, after some give-and-take play, got well away, but a forward pass spoiled the home teams chance of scoring. After a smart run by Alexander. Penarth was awarded another free. Lewis returned into the hands of Garrett, who passed Kirby. The latter handed back again to Garrett, but Garrett was unable to get through. A series of marks enabled Aberavon to place their opponents once more on the defensive, but Kirby got away in fine style and the game was resumed in the visitors' 25. Half-time was shortly afterwards called, neither side having scored. After changing ends play for some time settled down in the .Penarth quarters. Kirby got away, but he was promptly grarsed, and John saved ar. ugly rush by punting into touch. Penarth worked back to the centre, and here for some time scrambling play ensued. The ball once more drifted to the Penarth 25. Lewis made a free, which Shepherd smartly returned past the centre. A rush by the Aberavon forwards transferred the venue to the home 25, but Kirby relieved by a. brief sprint to the centre. Several long kicks were exchanged, and the Aberavon custodian failing in one of his attempts the bail went out of play at the visitors' 25. Shortly afterwards Selway relieved by a well-judged kick down the line, and scrimmages were once more the order of the day near the centre. Lewis, from a mark by Selway, attempted a drop at goal, but the ball was too heavy to rise, and the return of Alexander sent the leather out of play at the half way. Shortly after- wards Tanner having failed, Alexander stopped an ugly rush by some of the visitors' forwards. Shep- herd handed to Garrett, and the latter looked like scoring, but the excellent defensive play of the visitors proved too much for him, and he was grassed at the Aberavon 25. The game ended in a draw, neither side having scored. PONTYPRIDD V. PBNYGRAIG. The third encounter this season between these old rivals came off on the Taff Vale Grounds, Pontypridd, before a fair crowd. Aek Llewellyn started operations for the home team, and, no return being made, play settled down before the visitors' posts, whera, a few moments afterwards, Jimmy Lewis emerged with the leather in his possession, and crossed the line amid ap- plause. In crossing, however, Lewis knocked down the corner flag, and the visitors claimed a foul, which the referee disallowed, the kick at goal being abortive. Lloyd kicked off for the visitors, who at once invaded the Pontypridd territory. Their sojourn here was but of a ehort duration, for the homesters, contesting ground iuch by inch, forced play into the visitors' quarters, where the ball was confined for the next ten minutes, a free kick' conceded the visitors bringing them no relief. A splendid kick put in by Davies, one of the visiting three-quarters, preceded a rush to the home territory, but the return was prompt and effective. The home backs soon afterwards secufed poossession, and gave a pretty specimen of pas- sing in front of the visitors' citadel. Jack Murray, how- ever, was collared when on the point of crossing, when half-time was called, Pontypridd leading by a try to nil. On the change of ends the home team continued their aggressive tactics, and, but for the splendid defence of D. Lloyd at goal, the line would often have been crossed. Alun Morgan once looked like scoring, but, being tackled, transferred to Ben Lewis, who un- happily missed the ball. Dan Lloyd relieved with a. long punt, landing the leather in touch, but a second afterwards the pressure was renewed, and the visitors' back was compelled to touch down. From a line out at the 25 flag Harry Williams picksd up, and the leather was smartly transferred to Ben Lewis, Stead eventually securing and planting the oval between the posts. H. Williams took the kick, but failed to con- vert. A rush from the home forwards was neutralised by Reynolds, who gallantly saved almost on the line. Here a stubborn assault on the visiting citadel was witnessed, Penygraig eventually rushing the ball to neutral ground. Benny Lewis started a dribble, but was effectively stopped by Tom Morgan but with a determined rush the home team again invaded the hill- siders' territory, and Alun Morgan, with a couple of opponents collaring him, scored what appeared to the spectaton to be a try. The ball, however, was brought five yards out, and a series of scrums ensued in front of the Penygraig goal, where play remained until the call of time. Final score:—Pontypridd, 2 tries 1 minor Penygraig, nil. CADOXTON v. CARDIFF CREST. Tire Cadoxten team journeyed to Cardiff on Satur- day last to try conclusions with the Cardiff Crest. Cadoxton were four men short, and had to pick from "subs" on the ground. Only three were available, and therefore they had to play one short. The match was played on the East Moors, which was in a very sloppy condition. The crest won the toss, and kicked off, the ball being returned well into their 25 by Morgan, where a scrum was formed. Tylor passed out to Lane, and he in turn passed to Morgan, who put in a good kick over the line, which resulted in a minor. After the drop out the visitors' forwards worked the ball back on the line, and experienced hard lines in not scoring on many occasions. Two minors more were got before half-time. The score being—Cadox- ton, 3 minors; Crest, nil. After the re-start tae home team tried hard to break through the defence of the visitors, but it proved to. be too good, although only playing three three-quarters agninst four. Just about two minutes before the call of time one of the home. backs scored a corner try, which was not converted Final sCJre :-Cardiff Crest, 1 try Cadoxton, 3 minor. BARRY v. CANTON. Played on the Buttrills, Barry, in grand weather, and in the presence of a large attendance of spectators. Barry commenced play, a return being made to mid- way. Play was waging near the centre when M. Cheek, securing a pass from Jones, notched a try, the Barry men being apparently asleep at the time. The point was not improved upon. Barry dropped out, Jack Rees and J. Jones darting away, the latter trans- ferring the ball. Brown missed a certain chance of scoring. Afterwards the homesters rushed over the line, and a minor was allowed Barry. On the restart Canton pressed severely, and made repeated incursions into the home territory. Two frees were allowed Barry in succession, and Johnnie Davies kicking far into touch near the Canton citadel, Tommy did the trick, Rees failing to improve matters, the score now being equal. The battle was very evenly fought, Medcroft saving dangerous rushes on two occasions. Ernest Jones shortly afterwards made a splendid run, and had extremely hard lines in not dropping a goal. From this point Bennett had to retire, and call of time was announced in a minute or two afterwards, the final score reading :-Ba.rry, 1 try 1 minor Canton, 1 try. COGAN v. CWMBRAN. This match was played at Cogan on muddy ground. The teams were pretty evenly matched, although the forwards of the Cogan team were perhaps a little weaker than their opponents. The play in the first half was of a very uncertain nature, the visitors per- haps getting the best of matters. The fact that there was no scoring in the ifirst half will, however, shew that there was very little difference. Cogan was in very great danger twine or three times in the first half, as the visitors pressed 'them very closely. In the second half Cogan seemed to get the upper hand for a time, but this continued only for a brief period, for the visitors brought the ball up to the line, and in a scramble which took place almost on the line touched the ball behind. Cwmbran failed to convert their try. A minor only was scored after the try. Final score Cwmbran, 1 try and 3 minors to 2 minors. BARRY 2ND V. CADOXTON 2XD. The above teams met at the Sophia Gardens on Saturday last. As both teams hold a clean sheet so far this season, a. good game was witnessed, and ended in a draw, neither side scoring. Barry were minus five of their men, and hud to make up a team on the field, PENARTH HARLEQUINS V. CATHAYS JUNIOFIS. There teams met at Penarth on Saturday, and a very- interesting game ended in a win for the Harlequins by three tries to nil. COUNTY POLICE V. DINAS POWIS. These teams faced one another on the Dinas Powis Ground on Wednesday afternoon, the ground being in a sloppy condition. The number of spectators was quite satisfactory. Dinas Powis kicked off sgainst the wind, and desultory played ensued in mid-field for a. considerable time, after which play waged in the County's 25. From here the Police forwards, owing- to their superiority in strength, rushed matters up to the home goal-line, where a scrum was formed. From this stage till the call of half-time miserable play was witnessed on the part of the County, two minors being exacted by them. In the second half the home men, with the wind in their favour, showed up grandly, the whole pack doing credit to the club. About five minutes from the call of time Sam Hussey scored a try, which was unconverted, thus leaving Dinas Powis victors by three points to nil, ASSOCIATION. SOUTH WALES ILEAGUE. NORTH v. SOUTH GLAMORGAN. A match between representatives of the North and South portions of the county of Glamorgan wa,s played at Mountain Ash on Monday afternoon in aid of the South Wales League Fund. The Northern team had been selected from the Mountain Ash, Trelevvis. Cwm- bach, and Treharris Clubs, but the latter club was not represented owing to the clashing another fixture. The Southern players had been chosen from Cardiff, Barry District, Biaina, and Pontypridd, and were cap- tained by W. Walker, of Cardiff, the North team being skippered by i1'. Miller, of Mountain Ash. The South won the toss, and North kicked oS. It was soon seen that both sides were very evenly matehed, and for some time no material advantage was obtained by either team but eventually the South succeeded in forcing a corner, from which Parry, of Barry, rushed the ball between the posts. No further scoring was done up to half-time and on resuming after the interval the play was characterised by kicking and rushing, but the defence of both sides was too good to allow of scoring, and the game ended witn a win for the South by the goal obtained in the first half. The game throughout was of a very pleasant character. CARDIFF V. BARRY. These rival teams met in a rricndlv match on the Witchill Ground, Cadoxton. The game proved fast and exciting. The visitors obtained the first goal got by Thackeray. Soon afterwards Davies scored far the homesters. Cardiff obtained another point, and just before the call of "No Side" Barry equalised. Crichton, Deiney, Thackeray, and Farthing were hard working for Cardiff, and Sheldon, the brothers Wood- field, Roberts, and Jenkins were undoubtedly the most useful of the home crowd. Final score: Barry, 2 goals; Cardin, 2 goals. CARDIFF RESERVES v. PENARTH SWIFTS. These teams met on the Cardiff Association ground, Tynycoed, to try conclusions under the Association code. The Swifts won the toss. Play w.s very evenly balanced, and at half-time neither side had evenly balanced, and at half-time neither side had scoreU. On resuming both sides seemed fagged—aa- doubtly a little out 0 £ form. If anything the Swifts were on the aggressive, but Cardiff defended fairly well. Sessions piayed a good game, but not up to his usual form, owing to a sprained ankle. Tiie ma toil was most pleasant throughout, and ended in a draw, neither side having scored.
