At the Barry Dock Police-court on Monday Samuel Avery (of Cadoxton) and Samuel Kingsley (Barry Dock) were charged with permitting a horse to be worked whilst in an unfit condition.- Police-constable William Phillips deposed that on the Tuesday previous, at quarter past six in the evening, he saw the defendant Avery in charge of an old bay horse, which was in a low condition, attached to a cart in Gueret-street. He stopped the cart, and, on examining the horse, found an old wound on the withers three inches long and two inches wide. It was bleeding. He asked Avery how he could work the horse in that condition, and defendant said he knew nothing about it. It was Mr. Kingsley's horse, and he brought it to him at four o'clock that day, as his master, Mr. Lever, I had hired it for a couple of hours. In consequence of that witness went to Kingsley about it, and that defendant said he thought it was no harm to try to earn a shilling or so. The horse was right when he took it to Avery, and the wound must have been caused by the friction.—The Bench fined each defendant 7s. 6d. and costs. A JUVENILE THIEF AT BARRY DOCK GETS A FLOGGING. At the Barry Dock Police Court on Thursday, 30th ult., a youth, 12 years of age, named William Bryant, residing at Barry Dock, was charged on the information of George Corn well with stealing £ 1 7s.. the property of Edward Poole, butcher, of Holton-road, Barry Dock, on the previous Monday. —Mr. Cornwell said he was manager for Mr. Ed- ward Poole, and on Saturday he was suspicious that money was being taken from the till in the shop, and he, on Monday afternoon, marked a 2s. piece, which he put into the till about 2.15. There were two sovereigns and two half-sovereigns in the gold bowl, and in the silver bowl, in addition to the marked 2s. piece, three shillings and sixteen sixpences. After tea he went across to Messrs. Davies and Sherwood's opposite, and whilst standing there saw defendant at the till. He went back and found a sovereign, the marked two shilling piece, three shillings, and four sixpences gone. He asked the boy for the money, and the boy denied taking it. He then searched him, and found the marked 2s. piece in his waistcoat pocket, some coppers, four sixpences in one boot, and the sovereign and 3s. in the other boot. He then sent for a constable, and handed the money and the boy over to him.—Police-con- stable Shillam proved the arrest of the prisoner on a charge of stealing £ 1 7s. 2 £ d. At the police- station prisoner said he had not taken the money from the till, but picked it up from the floor.- Prisoner now acknowledged the theft, and his father said if the Bench would let the boy off he would take better care of him.-The Bench sentenced prisoner to received a flogging. DANGEROUS PRACTICES ON THE BARRY RAILWAY. At the Barry Dock Police Court on Thursday -before General Lee, Mr. John Cory, and Major Thornley—H. J. Rawledge, builder, Cadoxton, was charged at the instance of the Barry Railway Company, with unlawfully enter- ing a carriage at Cadoxton, on the 18th March, whilst the train was in motion.-Charles Butler, traffic inspector on the Barry Railway, said he was on duty on the 18th ult., and he saw defendant coming up the slope on to the platform at the west end of the Cadoxton station. He (the inspector) told defendant he was trespassing, and and that he might prevent him getting into the train. Defendant told him to try to do so. The train then started, and defendant passed him and got into a carriage.—General Lee And you got in afterwards ?-The Inspector: No, sir. I was in before the train started.—The Bench was of opinion that a technical offence has been comJ mitted, which would he met by their cautioning defendant. This was done, and defendant left the court. FORTHCOMING ANNUAL MEETINGS.

On Sunday last he appeared to be quite well, but expired on Mon- day.-Dr. Livingstone, after examining the body, gave a certificate, and the deceased was buried on Thursday. j. • VARIETY ENTERTAINMENT. Mr. Konrad Leigh was very successful with his variety entertainment at the Cadoxton Theatre on Wednesday ,Thursdc y,and Saturday of last week, and the performance well-merited a far better patronage than it received. Little Miss Fox was well re- ceived, and loudly applauded for her singing and dancing, while Miss Vera Rosini sang several ballads in a very taking manner, and was the receipient of repeated plaudits at the close of each song. She also appeared in the laughable sketch, A kiss in the dark," and took the part of the wife in a splendid manner. Mr. Harry Austin took the part of the eccentric comedian very suc- cessfully, while Mr. Benson Davies gave recita- tions in good style. Mons. de Verdi gave a conjur- ing entertainment, and was equally succesful as a lightning cartoonist. The entertainment was admirably conducted, and was such that no one could take exception. Mr. Leigh provides a good entertainment at a reasonable price. EASTER DAY SERVICES AT BARRY PARISH CHURCH.

BARRY Deep Water Lock. LAYING OF THE MEMORIAL STONE BY LADY WINDSOR, THE PROSPECT OF THE NEW DOCK, MR. T. R. THOMPSON SPEAKS OUT. ¡ Amid every circumstance tInt goiik' son tribute f towards the success ox the occasion, the memorial stone of the new deep-water entrance to the Barry Dock was laid on Friday afternoon, the interesting ceremony being gracefully performed by Lady Windsor in the presence of the directors of the company and a large number of their friends. The weather was simply 'superb, and in every respect the function was a most interesting and successful one. It is hoped that the new lock, which will admit of the entrance of vessels into the dock at any state of the tide, will be com- pleted in the course of the ensuing 12 months, the work being already well advanced. THE DESIGXS of the new undertaking have been prepared by Mr. J. Wolfe-Barry, M.C.Inst., C.E., of London, consulting Engineer to the company, and the con- tract for the excavation, masonry, &c., has been let to Mr. John Jackson, of Westminster, con- tractor for the Manchester Ship Canal. Lord and Lady Windsor (who on Thursday evening had entertained the directors and principal officials of the Barry Company to dinner at St. Fagan's) met the directors and their friends at Cadoxton station shortly before one on Friday, and there a special train of brand new cars was in readiness to con- vey the party to the dock. The locomotives at each end of the train were gaily dressed with flags and evergreens, and on the vessels in dock there was a plentiful display of bunting so that THE GREAT CENTRE OF COMMERCIAL ACTIVITY wore for the time being quite a holiday aspect. At the head of the new dry dock, which runs parallel with the deep sea lock, a temporary wooden platform had been erected, and here the party alighted. They were conducted by the officials of the company to the side of the great cutting where, round the huge block of granite forming the memorial stone, a plat- form had been constructed. Lord and Lady Windsor were received by the crowds of spec- tators on the adjacent wharves with the most cordial and respectful salutations. There were among those present the following :—Mr. Archi- bald Hood (vice-chairman of the Barry Company), Mr. Edward Davies (managing director), Mr. L. Gueret and Mrs. G-ueret, Mr. T. R. Thompson. Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Insole, Mr. John Cory, J.P., and Miss Cory, Mr. H. C. Roberts. Mr. T. Wolfe Barry, M.Inst. of Civil Engineers, Mrs. Walter Shirley, Miss Carey. Mr. and Mrs. Llewellyn Wood, Mr. and Mrs. G-. C. Downing, Miss Carr, Mrs. C. Evans, Miss Bell, Mr. and Misses R. Evans, Miss Dyer, Mr. and Mrs. Radford, Miss C. E. Evans, Mr. A. J. Lusty, Mr. C. L. Clay, Mr. and Mrs. J. Jackson, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Insole, Miss Gueret, Mr..and Mrs. Callaghan, Mr. A. Bell, Mr. E. B. Reece, Sir. John Duncan, Mr. Lewis Williams, Mr. Rees Jones, Mr. E. S.

Sprent, Mrs. E. S. Hale, Mr. J. Brereten, M.I.C.E., Mr. T. G-. Duncan, kc. THE HONOUR. Mr. J. Wolfe-Barry, addressing those assembled, said he had the honour to have been requested by the directors to atk Lady Windsor to be good enough to lay the memorial stone of that new undertaking-, and thus to celebrate her coming amongst them on that occasion and showing her interest in this new work, which, he hoped, would perpetuate her name for all time with that very useful addition to the Barry Dock. (Hear, hear.) The new lock formed more or less always a part of the original proposal of the enterprise. It was always felt both by the directors and by their officers that a single entrance to so important a dock ought not to remain for all time—that there ought to be a second entrance, so that if anything went wrong with the other one the traffic of the dock might go on without interruption. Apart, however, from that, the directors had always felt that the Barry Dock should be in the forefront in the accommodation to be given to shipping, and they, therefore, determined to make the deep-water entrance, which would be a convenience afforded bv no other dock on the Bristol Channel. In under- taking this work they entered upon an entirely new departure. A FEW PARTICULARS OF THE LOCK, which were such as to make it almost un- precedented in this country, mightbe given. The length of the lock was 647 feet, and the width 65 feet. These dimensions were not anything more than was common, but what was very uncommon was that a tide of the range which existed in the Bristol Channel should give no accommodation for vessels to enter at low water. The depth at neap tides in the new entrance would be 14 feet at low water, and the depth on spring tides at low water would be 22 feet. He might accentuate the importance of this depth by reminding the company that the depth at the present entrance at low water on spring tides was only 1ft. 7in., so that the increase in this accommodation was very remarkable. He had had extracted the number of hours in the year during which the different depths of water would be available at this lock. The total number of hours in the year was 8,760, but of that number for three-fourths there would be a depth of 24 feet in the new lock. For ten-elevenths of the whole number there would be a depth of 18 feet, and for the whole year there would always be a available 12 feet. Something like from 12 to 15 feet was quite sufficient for the entry of all light vessels and therefore they might say that light vessels coming for cargo to Barry Dock would be able to enter ac all times of the tide. The cost of the new works would be about £ 210,000. They had not yet arrived at pay- in f the bills, but that was the anticipation. (Laughter.) He ventured to think that this expen- diture, though very large, would be amply remu- nerative. It would be seen by a very small calcu- lation that if only about 200,000 tons of extra shipping were sent into the dock in consequence of the extra accommodation given by the low- water entrance that it would pay for itself. But it would pay far more, he thought, in the great advantage which the second entrance would give I to the traffic generally, and in the great security which it would afford to the enormous capital which had been embarked in the dock and rail- I way. (Applause.) In conclusion, Mr. Wolfe- Barry requested Lady Windsor to be good enough to perform the ceremony of laying the stone. I THE LAYING OF THE STOXE. Mr. Jackson, the contractor, then presented Lady Windsor with a handsome silver trowel, with ivory handle, and bearing a suitable inscription, I and with this her ladyship spread the cement under the stone. In a small cavity in the masonry below a sealed bottle, containing copies of the local papers, particlars of the new lock, and the current coins of the realm was deposited. The stone-an immense piece of granite measuring 6ft. Sin. by 4ft. 4in. by 2ft 3in., and weighiRg about six tons-was. then lowered ^from the crane on which it had been suspended into its new place. Her ladyship tapped it three times with the handle of th& trowel, and declared it: well and truly laid," the cheers of the company as this was don.(. proclaiming to the more distant crowds a? spectators that the stone had been placed in position. In large black letters cut in the fa50 of the stone were the follcwing words :—- THIS STONS WAS LAID by LADY WINDSOR During the Construction of this Lock, April 7th, 1893, TBE LATA" WiNDSOU Locg. Mr, Wclfe-Barrv said he was going to make a revest to Lady Windsor, on behalf of the directors of the company, and that was that she would allow' the new lock to be called bv her name. so that in future It might be known as the Lady Windsor Lock. (Loud applause.) VOTE OF TII.4NFCSL. Mr. Archibald Hood. in moving a vote of thanks to Lady Windsor, said among the many duties he had had to perform in connection with the Barry Dock, none gave him greater pleasure than that one. It was impossible to under-rate the advantage which that lock would be. not only to the shareholders of the company, but to all engaged in shipping-. The poor mariner would, at all times be able to seek shelter there from the racing storm outside, and to find a happy and safe haven of rest. The directors, however, were not wholly philan- thropists. and they had not gone into this expensive undertaking without some ulterior object in!view. He agreed with Mr. Wolfe-Barry that the advantages to Barry Dock would be so much greater thr>.t they would repay the expense that was being incurred. No one could have performed the ceremony of laying the stone more gracefully than Lady Windsor had done, and he hoped that her presence there that day. and her hand having been laid upon that stone, would for ever cast a halo of charm round the whole of the Barry Dock interest. (Applause.) The sun had smiled upon them that day, and he hoped that this might be taken as an augury of good for the future of the undertaking. (Applause.) He was but echoing the sentiments of the directors and their friend:; when he said that they gave Lord and Lady Windsor their most grateful and heartfelt thanks. (Loud applause.) GOOD NEW- FOR BARRY. Mr. T. R. Thompson, in seconding the propo- sition, said they welcomed Lady Windsor all the more heartily now because a sad bereavement pre- vented her from performing the ceremony at the laying of the foundation stone of the dock. That district, though vounyr, was of vigorous growth, but they still looked forward to other ceremonies of that description. He might venture to express the hope of meeting Lord and Lady Windsor there on another occasion, when they hoped to lay the foundation stone of the new dock, which be believed it was the intention of the directors should be proceeded with as soon as circumstances warranted. (Applause.) The proposition having been carried amid much cheering and waving of hate. Lord Windsor, who was very heartily received, said Lady Windsor had requested him to convey to them her deep appreciation of, and her sincere thanks for, the way in which she had been re- ceived that afternoon. She fully appreciated Mr. Wolfe-Barry's suggestion that the lock should bear her name and should be called the Lady Windsor Lock. It would be a matter for great congratulation to them both to feel that her name was perpetuated in connection with that work. One's recollection naturally went back across that great span of time when there was hardly a house and nothing in the way of a great industry in that district or on Barry Island. Only the previous day he was looking at a record which reminded him of having walked the best part of a day over Barry Island and brought home, he thought, five brace of partridges and a certain number of rabbits. Well. he believed that was not the last occasion upon which a sportsman was found upon. Barry Island. But, at any rate, he would wager his own bag on that occasion against the bag of the later sportsman. (Renewed laughter.) THE IMPORTANCE OF THE NEW LOCK was so great, and it conferred such great advan- tages. not alone upon the Barry Company, but upon the trade of the district, that it was with the heartiest satisfaction that Lady Windsor recog- nised the association of her name with the new enterprise. He ventured to say that they would recollect that day the whole of their lives. He would not detain the company further, but agaia thank the mover and seconder of the resolution and those present for the reception they had accorded Lady Windsor and himsslf. (Applause.) This concluded the ceremony. LUXCrlEOX AT CULLEY'S HOTEL. The party, having returned to the train, were conveyed to Barry Dock station, where they alighted and proceeded to the Barry Dock Hotel, where luncheon was prepared. Some of the lady visitors were conducted across the dock in a steam launch, and they greatly enjoyed the trip. About a hundred guests sat down to luncheon, which Mr. R. P. Culley served in his best style. -If, Lord Windsor, who presided, proposed the toast of The Queen." to which there was a loyal response. SUCCESS TO THE NEW UNDERTAKING." Lord Windsor, in giving the toast, said he believed it would add greatly to the equipment of that dock. It was not for him to dwell upon the merits of the directors, but he wished to take the opportunity of saying this-that the directors did endeavour to subordinate their more selfish inte- rests, if he might so call them (those that might appear at the moment to be the interests of the company and the shareholders) to the good of the trade of the district—(applause)—believing, as he thought they did rightly, that in the long run the interests of trade were also the interests of the Barry Dock. (Hear, hear.) Their policy was not an aggressive one, and they did not desire to com- pete with their neighbours in any unfair manner, but only to make use of such advantages as they were possessed of in having a dock that was built within the last ten years with all the improve- ments that modern engineering could put into it. Their chief wish was to promote the interests of the trade in this part of the country. The toast was received with great enthusiasm. THE SHACKLES OF A GREAT INDUSTRY SHAKEN OFF. Mr. L1. Wood. in proposing •• The Health of the Barry Directors," said his lordship had alluded in distinct terms to what was unintelligible to the fairer portion of the audience—the re-taring of empty waggons after shipment—a great departure which was eminently in the interests of the trad- ing community of Cardiff. If the great delay and inconvenience in South Wales coal finding an outlet through Cardiff had been removed, it was due to the existence of the noble dock and con- necting lines to the collieries which the company aad seen that day. Had it not been for the great name, the high place, the untarnished character of Lord Windsor, the promoters would not have been able to get the powers which were required from Parliament to construct the dock. It might not be Lord Windsor privilege to add such another jewel as India to the English Crown, but he had already, by his action, struck off the shackles from a great industry, and afforded the means of liveli- hood and wealth to a vast population. (Applause.) These beneficent achievements were not unworthy of the names of Windsor and Clive. He (Mr. Wood) had great pleasure in coupling with toast the names of Lord Windsor and Mr. Archi- bald Hood. (Applause.) Mr. Hood, in returning thanks, said the direc- tors had already received from the company all tha.t they expected—the high appreciation of the company. (Applause.) Mr. 11. Forrcst proposed the .health of Lady Windsor, to which Lord Windsor brieny responded. This concluded the proceedings.

JOilN CORY. ? I Mr. John Cory has now resigned his seat upon the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board, and we learn that there will now be an extra- ordinaarv election in the Barry Ward. Mr. Cory has not been able to attend the Board meetings regularly, but. he was the first chair- jnan of that body. "rtlfc 'PÖR1' 'SAlslTAYlY At'tfioHtf'V questiqS!. After waiting some time it has at last been -decided by the Local Government Board to hold • a public enquiry on Tuesday next with regard TtO the Local Board's application for the exten- sion of its jurisdiction as a Port Sanitary .Authority from Lavernock to Nash Point. It is -contended, and rightly we think, that the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board are the proper authority to have control over that sea front for sanitary purposes. Not only will it be of benefit to the Local Board but also to the whole district. There are other places anxious to secure the right, and we are certain in the case .of their obtaining it, that it would be detri- mental to the district. The Local Board are determined to fight out the case for Barry, and we are pleased to find that there are other local bodies ready to assist them. BARRY MUST GO AHEAD. The steps which have been taken towards -establishing a Naval Reserve Station at Barry are now becoming more and more prominent, ,and are drawing towards the final effort. The -petition is already prepared and ready for signatures. POOR-LAW UNION FOR BARRY. The- Committee of the Barry Ohamber of "Trade are steadily at work drawing up statistics with regard to the Poor-law Union question. They are determined that they will leave no stone unturned in order to place a good case before the repesentatives of the parishes when they meet together to discuss the question.
