IN THE INTERESTS OF LABOUR. Of late so much has been written respecting the Barry District Trades Council and the manner in which it conducts its business that we consider it will be well in the interests of labour if the whole affair is thrashed out. Com- plaints have been made that the true interests of the organisation have been abandoned, place and party taking the position labour should occupy, and that the Council is at the mercy of political and private wirepullers. It is also asserted that there is a downgrade tendency in connection with the affairs of the Council. Such a charge is sufficient to break up any body representing the Labour Party in a district were there any truth in such assertions. But who makes the charge ? A member of the Barry District Trades Council—at least he says so through the Press. That alone we consider is sufficient answer to his charge. As a member of the Council it is his duty to those who send him there in their interests to bring the matter before the Trades Council and to have it properly discussed, and then if that body of labour representatives fail in their duty it would be his place to report the matter to the lodge or trade which he represents. Instead of doing so he quietly ignores the body of which he is a member, and at once rushes into an anomymous correspondence in the public press. He has not the courage to place his name after what he has written, but under an norn de plume, and from behind the scenes hurls shafts at his colleagues. Is that Trade Unionism,? We con- sider that any man who would do such a thing is far from being a Trade Unionist, and the sooner he drops that cloak the better it will be for all parties concerned. Why does he not endeavour to pull the Council round into the proper course or resign. By making the 0 assertions, out of sight so to speak, he acts the part of the spy, and not that of the reformer. He says the Council should be reformed. There is no doubt as to that fact. Is there any body .that is perfect ? But it is not the way to bring about reforms by attending the meetings of those charged, and then strike at them from outside. If anyone has the feeling of manliness which should fill the breast of every true friend of Labour and Trade Unionism he would not seek to drag through the mire the very party he desires to reform. He should en- deavour to lift them up, and, by example, do all in his power to abolish that which is not right and just. But we don't think there is much in the words and charges which have been levelled. They are empty. It is all bark and no bite, and the Trade Council, we believe, will be even more strong after the storm has passed than before. The Trades Council has laboured under great difficulties, and endeavoured to fight the battle for Labour in a straightforward and honest manner, and we believe that they will continue to do so in the future, but at the same time it will be far better that they should once for all settle the enemy in their camp. We scarcely know whether it would not be better to treat' him' with silern; contempt. He would certainly feel the blow more, because it is evident that he aims at causing a dis- turbance, and by so doing hopes to split up the Labour Party. To the working classes at large we would say that they should exercise the greatest care as to who they returned to the Trades Council. It is not always the men who have the loudest voice and delight in." tub- thumping who are the best friends of Labour -often they are the greatest enemies, and have an axe to grind or barrow to wheel. It is well to see that the men are what they repre- sent themselves to be, and indeed working honest men. If the individual who makes the charges against the Trades Council has at heart the welfare of that body let him stand up boldy and state his case. He will be heard and people will believe that he has some cause for complaint; but so long as he hides his identity he will be looked upon as a coward and a spy.
LOCAL NOTES. THE ADVANTAGES OF BARRY. The exceptionally fine weather of the last few months has brought into prominence the ques- tion of local amusements. There are, of course, several local cricket clubs. Wherever the Briton goes, cricket exists, and Barry is no ex- ception to the rule. There is a flourishing lawn tennis club at Barry and another at Palmerstown, while the name of the cyclists of Barry is legion. There is also a very good boat club with a club-house at Coldknap Point. Barry Harbour forms a very excellent place for boating, and we must admit that we are sur- prised that a larger number of persons do not take advantage of it. We heartily recommend our readers, who are not already members, to join the-Barry Rowing Club. We think that not only should those join it who are able to take advantage of the opportunity it affords <af boating, but also all those who are interested in the success of the town. In August next there will be through trains to Cardiff, and Barry will at once enter into competition with Penarth as a place of residence for Cardiff men of business. There is no doubt Barry has a great advantage over Penarth in the way of natural beauty, and and we should see that in the matter of oppor- tunities for healthy amusement (which is a very important factor in a residential suburb) we do not lag behind. BARRY AS A SEASIDE RESORT. There are few people in Barry-and they are few—who cannot be convinced that Barry is destined to become a seaside resort. Those persons who had any doubts upon this subject would have had all their doubts and fears dis- pelled had they paid a visit to Barry Island on Whit-Monday. We might say that thousands of persons embraced the opportunity, and spent a very pleasant holiday by visiting Barry Island. It is admitted that there is not a better stretch of sand in the Bristol Channel than that which is found at Barry Island, and in the near future there is no doubt but that this locality will attract, by its natural gifts, if nothing else, thousands of pleasure-seekers. We do not say that Barry will immediately become a fashion- j able seaside resort, but we do think that we have every reason to believe that, as the great advantages of Barry Island become more 'i widely known, and the railway company im- prove the facilities for reaching that health- giving spot, that large numbers of people-and particulaely excursionists-will be attracted here. Much depends upon the Barry Railway Company, but we feel sure that they will do all in their power to help Barry to become a seaside resort. THE FEDERATED CHAMBERS OF TRADE AT BARRY. On Thursday next, June 1st., the Federated Chambers of Trade will meet in the Barry district, and we are but re-echoing the senti- ments of the President of the Barry Dock and District Chamber of Trade (Mr. D. T. Alexander) when we ask not only every member of the local Chamber of Trade but everybody who can to assist in making the meeting a success. There has been so much said and written in the past respecting the great and rapid strides which the Barry district has made that the outside world are looking forward for further developments, and the people of the locality have now a grand opportunity of doing something to help the neighbourhood. Much can be done individually, and if everyone who has the interest of the locality at heart will but back up the President of the Chamber of Trade, we feel sure that the visit will be a success, and that the name of Barry will go forth to the world with even greater weight than heretofore. It is the duty of every tradesman to give the visitors a hearty welcome, and by their presence at the meetings of the Federated Chambers of Trade show that they too have an interest in the welfare of that body, and that they are anxious to see trade in South Wales reach a much higher standard than at present. Barry is distained to become a prominent corner on the map of Wales, and every facility that can should be afforded it to help it in its upward march. The meeting of the Chambers will be held at the Royal Hotel, Cadoxton. There are several important questions down for discussion, and we can only hope that the members of the local bodies will put in an appearance in strong force. The visitors will be taken round the dock works in a special train, kindly placed at their disposal by the directors of the Barry Railway Company, and at six o'clock the visitors. with the members- and friends of the Barry Chambers, will assemble at the Barry Hotel, and adjourn to the Market-hall for the banquet, which will be held under the presidency of Mr. D. T. Alexander. A commendable feature in connection with the banquet proceedings will be a comparative veto placed upon the num- ber and extent of toasts and speeches, the programme being, therefore, mainly composed of superior musical selections, for which the services of Mrs. A. M. Morgan, of Cadoxton, and the Barry Male Voice Party have been placed at the disposal of the promoters. A number of distinguished gentlemen from Car- diff and elsewhere, together with leading members and friends of the Barry Company and other prominent local interests, will be specially invited to attend the banquet, and at the close of the proceeding those from a distance will be able to return to their homes by means of specially arranged trains. SHOULD WELSH BE TAUGHT IN OUR SCHOOLS ? We would direct the attention of our readers to the letter which appears in the Welsh column this week upon the subject of the teaching of Welsh in the day schools.. The writer has set forth his arguments, we think, in a very forcible manner, and we feel sure that many will ap- preciate and re-echo his sentiments. The interest taken in the study of the Welsh language in this district is increasing, and we are pleased to announce that Professor Powell, of the University College of South Wales, Cardiff, has, at the Invitation of the Rev. W. Williams, kiudly consented to conduct ^ex- aminations periodically, and grant certificates of merit, in connection with the latter gentle- men's Welsh class at Cadoxton. This will, no doubt, serve to encourage the members of the class to aim at proficiency in their studies meanwhile. SELLING BREAD OTHER THAN BY WEIGHT. The public of the Barry district are under a distinct obligation to the local police authori- ties for the decided steps they have just taken in bringing to justice those local tradespeople who, with such persistence and impunity, infringe the law by selling bread to their customers other than by weight. More par- ticularly is this the case owing to the fact that in frequent instances the raid has resulted in a discovery that the bread thus sold is not of the prescribed weight. This being the case, it follows that not only are the requirements of the law disregarded, but the public also are robbed in the purchase of that article of con- sumption which is essentially the staff of life. It is, too, satisfactory to find that in the cases brought before the magistrates during the past week or so exemplary penalties have been im- posed, which, we trust, will have a salutary effect upon offending tradespeople for the future. THE WELSH PEOPLE OF BARRY AND THE TEMPERANCE CAUSE. It is very gratifying to perceive that the Welsh people of the Welsh people of the Barry district are at last awakening to the fact that they have a duty to perform, alike with their English neighbours, to render assistance in the direction of promoting the cause of temperance in our midst, A Welsh Good Templar Lodge (the first of the kind ever formed for the dis- trict) has been established at Barry Dock, and judging from the influential and representative character of the list of officers (which is pub- lished in another column of our present issue, as well as in our Gofofri y Cymry), it augurs boldly and encouragingly a successful future for the movement. It is to be hoped, therefore, the new Lodge will be strongly supported by the public generally, and that neither denomina- tional or other considerations will stand in the way of a most prosperous career for the new Lodge. OUR MEMBER IN PARLIAMENT. The respected Parliamentary representative for South Glamorgan, Mr. Arthur J. Williams, continues to discharge his duty towards his constituency with unerring faithfulness and assiduity, for during the half session just con- eluded it is shown that his attendances in the House of Commons have been so regular that out of a total number of ninety-five divisions which have taken place, the hon. gentleman has been in his place sixty-one times, and on every occasion he has vote straight" on the great questions of principle and equity which have engaged attention. The temporary repose which, therefore, Mr. Williams is now enjoying, 11 in common with the remainder of the House, is a well-merited one. CHARACTERISTIC GALLANTRY OF BARRY BOATMEN. The unfortunate mishap which befel the two licensed boatmen, Howsden and Booker, and which nearly cost them their lives, by the up- setting of their boat off Barry Dock last Saturday night, called forth an opportunity for another display of distinguished gallantry on the part of two other Barry boatmen, Thomas Chappell and James Taylor, who, through their praiseworthy and timely conduct in leaping into their small boat from the Pier-head, and rushing to the rescue, were able to pick up the imperilled men ere it was two late. This is not the first time that Chappell and Taylor have, in consort, displayed plucky conduct of a similar nature, for they have, on a previous occasion, together saved the lives of comrades in a like position of danger, and when the three poor dockers were drowned in Barry Roads during a heavy storm last year, it was with great difficulty that Taylor and Chappel were prevailed upon by those on shore not to place themselves in a position of immediate danger by proceeding in their boat on the raging sea, which was running mountains high at the time, in the hope of rendering assistance on that occasion. In addition to these instances, Chappell has likewise been instrumental in saving live on more than one other occasion. Conduct such as that by which these brave men have so distinguished themselves is such, therefore, as to be richly deserving of tangible recognition at the hands of our admiring public. In these circumstanccs, we trust the matter will come under the notice of Captain Davias, the dockmaster at Barry, who we feel confident, will communicate the circumstances to the authorities of the Royal Humane Society. We might also suggest that a small fund might be raised by the public of the district for the purpose of presenting a suitable testimonial to these brave fellows. MR. BLACKMORE AND THE BARRY PUBLIC LIBRARIES COMMITTEE. The Secretary and Librarian has not, we think, treated the Public Libraries Committee of the Barry district with anything like courtesy upon their decision with regard to his application for an increase of salary. When Mr. Blackmore took office a little more, we think, than twelve months ago, he very readily did so at a salary of C 30 a year (£5 more than it was originally intended to pay for the office). Last week, when it was deter- mined to increase the duties to some extent, the question of augmentation of salary was readily taken into account, and all the members having spoken highly of the manner in which Mr. Blackmore had discharged his duties hitherto, it was unanimously agreed to grant an increase for the present at the rate of flO a year. Mr. Blackmore, however, received the decision of the Committee in a very thankless manner to say the least, and he now declines, we understand, to undertake the new duties until the matter of salary has again been considered. The ratepayers are naturally averse to the salaries of officers being augmented by inordinate leaps and bounds, and while we must express an opinion that the decision of the Libraries' Committee last week was a most reasonable one, under all circum- stances, we think it is a pity Mr. Blackmore did not accept the suggestion thrown out that he should be content with an advance of JE10 for the present, and apply for a further increse when the new work had come well under weigh a few months hence. Taking all thing into con- sideration, we thiuk that the salary offered by the Committee was exceedingly good, especially as the librarian has ample opportunity for discharging other duties and attending to business. THE LOYAL LORD WINDSOR LODGE OF ODDFELLOWS, BARRY. The action which the members of the Loyal "Lord Windsor" Lodge of Oddfellows, N.U., Barry, have so successfully taken in their relation with the St. Nicholas district indicates their determination to make progress in the healthiest and most legitimate manner, and that they will not be a willing party to the attitude of "suspended animation" which characterises their parentage of St. Nicholas, for they have been fortunate enough to secure permission from the A.M.C. Convention at Southampton this week to transfer the lodge to the jurisdic- i tion of the Cardiff district. Representations of the Barry Lodge to the corresponding 0 secretary some time ago enabled the new Districts' Committee of the Order to report to the A.M.C. the utter inactivity of the St. Nicholas district, and the contravention by the latter of the 36th general rule by charging initiation fees varying from 7s. 6d. to 14 10s. per member. The matter was fully discussed by the convention with the result that the necessary sanction was granted to the Lord Windsor Lodge to transfer itself to the Cardiff district. The change will, no doubt, prove a beneficial one, until, at least, such time at the lodge will be able to propagate its influence losally to such an extent that a separate district may be formed for Barry.
NOT THE STAR." LOCAL WINDING-UP ORDER. The London Gazette of Tuesday night contains the following local winding-up order under the Companies Acts — South Wales Advertising Printing, and Publishing Company (Limited) Vere-street, Cadoxton-juxta-Barry, Glamorgan shire. The date of the order of the Cardiff Court is May 4; the date of the presentation of the petition was March 14 last. As some people seem to think that the above notice refers to ourselves, we wish to clearly state that the Company which owns the Star is the South Wales Liberal and Radical Newspaper and Newsagency Company, Limited. The company which is to be wound-up compulsorily owns the Barry Dock JYewx. We think, in justice to our- selves, and especially as the Registered Offices of the two companies are in Vere-street, Cadoxton, and there is a simiiarity in the names, that we should make this statement. We are also glad to be able to assure our readers that the prospects of the Star were never more promising than at the present time.
BARRY THROUGH TRAINS TO CARDIFF. PROBABLE DATE OF THE OPENING. AUGUST BANK HOLIDAY CONTEMPLATED. Although the matter actually lies in the hands of the directors of the Great Western Railway Company, at whose mercy the Barry and Taff Vale Companies lie in this respect for the present, there is hope felt on all hands that passengers trains will commence to run through from Barry to Cardiff town and docks on August Bank Holiday. There has been considerable delay in completing the necessary arrangements on the part of the Great Western Company, but still the terms of agreement between the companies has not been lost sight of, and, although the preliminaries are proceeding slowly on the part of the Great Western Company, the Barry Company are pre- pared and anxious, we are officially informed, to run through at the first possible opportunity. Through trains between Barry and Cardiff, it need scarcely he added, will prove a great con- venience to the travelling public.
FATAL ACCIDENT AT THE DOCKS. On Thursday morning Mr. E. B. Reece, the district coroner, hald an inquest on the body of Charles Robert Orr, who met with his death on Tuesday night at No. 17 tip. Mr. Lloyd was appointed foreman of the jury. Thomas Hatton, of Liverpool, chief officer of the West Glen, identified the body of deceased, and said on the night of the 23rd his vessel was at Barry Dock, and the deceased Charles Orr was acting as chief officer, having brought the ship from Plymouth to Barry, where she arrived on Saturday night. Orr was paid off on the 22nd inst., so that he may send his money to his wife at Plymouth. He was by his certificate 62 years old. He (witness) spoke to him on the night of the 23rd at 9.30 as he was standing on the poop of the West Glen. He was then acting as night watchman. He (witness) heard deceased walking about at 10.25. Witness went on deck just after with orders for deceased for the morniug, but could not find him. The ship, lying close to the jetty, deceased could step off on to the land, having searched for deceased, and not finding him, witness came to the conclusion that the deceased had gone on shore for a drink. Witness waited until mid-night when & man came from a German barque next, and asked if any of his men were ashore. He said the watchman was, and the man told him that an old man had been killed. Witness went with the man to the place, about 300 yards from the vessel, and there found Orr lying on his back dead. Orr had with him two buckets, in one of which was two pieces of coal. Some trimmers had pulled the body back fiom the railway. There was no need of the man going on shore for the coal, as there was plenty of coal in the locker, and, in fact, the Captain had forbidden him to go on shore to pick coal, and told him to saw up' some wood instead. The deceased was quite sober. Eber Lewis, 19. Gane-street, Barry, tipper, said he was working at the 17th tip on the night of the 23rd inst. He finished his work at about 10.30 at the 17th tip, and then went along the empty road to the 18th tip. After going about a distance of a hundred yards from the weigh-house he found the body of the deceased lying right across the left hand rail on his face. Witness called his mate back, and then pulled deceased off the rail. Deceased's left arm was broken to pieces, and witness noticed two buckets near the fore feet, one of which contained two lumps of coal. Witness sent for a policeman. C. Reeves, coal weigher, whe was with the last witness, corroborted. Dock-constable David Griffiths, stationed at Barry Dock, said he received information of the accident at 11.50, when on duty near Cadoxton. He went to the place, and found the body there. He examined the body, and found life was extinct. There were marks where the truck had gone over the body, right across the abdomen and the left arm. He had the body removed to the weigh- y cl house. He searched the body, and found 4s. Hid. on it. Cross-examined by the representatives of the deceased's family, he said he had not seen any postal receipt for any money. After a short consultation, the jury returned a verdict of Accidental Death." The representatives of the deceased's family con- tended that the man would not have gone on shore for coal if there had been any on the vessel, and that the man met with his death whilst in the execution of his duty.
ST. DAVID'S LODGE I.O.G.T. On Thursday last the usual weekly session of the above lodge was' held in the Shaftesbury Tem- perance Hotel, The Chief Templar being absent, Bro. Henry Richards, Lodge Deputy, was voted to the chair. After the business had been disposed of, there was a fruit banquet. A capital assortment of fruit was placed on the table, and much enjoyed. A very pleasant evening was spent, aid the Lodge closed at 9.45.
