rpHE APPROACHING MARRIAGE OF H.S.H. 1 PRINCESS VICTORIA MARY of Teck with H.R.H. the DUKE of YORK affords an opportunity of giving expression to the affectionate loyalty of the Principality. We deem it our duty, as holding official positions in the County of Glamorgan, 1 > take such steps as seem necessary to enable tl i inhabitants of our County to join in presenting suitable WEDDING GIFT, either in coujuntion with the other Counties Wales, or on their own behalf only, whichever course may be considered best. As the value of such a gift should not be measured by its cost, but rather by the goodwill of which it is the proof, we desire to say that we invite contributions, however small, to this fund. An Account, called the "Welsh Presentation (Glamorganshire) Account," has been opened at Metropolian, Birmingham, and South Wales Bank at Cardiff and Swansea, to which subscriptions may be paid, and which will be acknowledged in the Press.

Martin McGrath, 7, Morel-street, Barry Dock, was charged at the Police-court by Mrs. Jane McCarthy, of 9, Mcrel-street, with assaulting her on the 3rd inst. From what complainant said, it .appears that up to the previous Saturday defen- ilant had lodged with her. but on that day he came home drunk. He wanted her to fetch drink, but she refused to do so, and he then beat her daughter. Complainant received a black-eye from defendant, for which she now summoned him.—Defendant was fined jEland costs or 14 days, which will, no doubt, -serve as a warning to him.

(id. for being drunk at Cadoxton. Katherine Kemble and Kate Russell also answered to the Bench on similar charges, and were fined. 5s. each. IT IS A PARENT'S DUTY TO MAINTAIN HIS OFFSPRING. Edward Adams, of Cadoxton, discovered at the Barry Dock Police-court on Thursday last that one of the first principles of the law of England is that a parent is bound to maintain his offspring. He was summoned at the instance of the Home Office for not contributing to the support of his son, e is at present on board the reformatory ship, j.ue Havanna," and the Bench ordered him to pay 2s. per week. A HAPPY DAY AT BARRY ISLAND. Last Wednesday witnessed a large number of the poor of Cardiff enjoying themselves on Barry Island. It was the day of the Cardiff Town Mission outing. Leaving the G.W.R. Station between ten and eleven in the morning, the com- pany arrived at Barry about half-past) eleven. They proceeded to the Island, where they partook of the lunch provided for them. Dispersing after- wards, the younger element wandered in different directions over the Island the aged ones sat con- tentedly here and there enjoying the animated scene whilst all inhaled with grateful hearts the seaside air. At four o'clock in the afternoon tea was ready, and about 140 were entertained. Before leaving the Island in the evening a meeting was held, which was conducted by the town missionary, Mr. John Trask, assisted by the Rev. J. Morris (of Star-street Congregational Church), and others. Several addresses were delivered and hymns were sung. The return journey was successfully accomplished, and" thus a very pleasant day was brought to a close. The hearty thanks of the Cardiff Town Mission are given to all the kind friends who contributed to the expenses of the outing.

At the Cardiff County Court, before his Henour Deputy Judge Amphlett on Friday, an action was brought by Mr. Gordon, late manager of the Barry and Cadoxton Coal Company, against that com- pany, to recover certain sums due to him as .salary. Mr. Jackson appeared for plaintiff, and Mr. Jones Lloyd defended. It was stated on behalf of the plaintiff that in March, 1892, whilst he was acting as manager of the company, the then secretary of the company resigned, and plaintiff was appointed secretary pro tern. His appointment as secretary was confirmed on the 26th of May, whilst he was ptill acting as manager, but no salary was then fixed for these additional services, the company Ihaving passed a resolution that it should be fixed at a future time. Plaintiff saw the directors, and it was partly understood that his remuneration as secretary should take the form of an allotment of -shares. This was not done, however, and in October last year another secretary was appointed. Plaintiff applied for shares, and shortly afterwards received notice to quit the company's employ. His claim was for £ 16 10s. (three weeks' wages and a month's commission). The defence was that -plaintiff was appointed secretary pro torn., the understanding being that he was to discharge the duties in addition to his duties as manager with- out any increase of salary. Defendants also put in a counter claim of between £ 6 and £ 7, which ,plaintiff stated had already been deducted.-His 'Honour gave a verdict for the plaintiff for £10, with costs on the claim. TRVSTGNATION OF A BARRY DOCK POST- MASTER. We understand that Mr. Molineaux, postmaster, Holton-road, Barry Dock, has just sent in his -A9i<rnation Mr. Molineaux has held the post for upwards of three years. The Holton-road Post Office will now be removed to other premises. A DIVER PICKS SOVEREIGNS OUT OF THE DOCK. An eccurance of a remarkable character took -place on Friday last at Barry Dock. The wife of the captain of the sailing ship, Sainsby (which was lying in the dock), was coming ashore to -make some purchases at Cardiff. She had in her hand a small satchel, the clasp of which slipped -open just as she was stepping on to the quay, and no less than five sovereigns fell to the bottom of the dock. The woman was much distressed at Tier loss, but the Barry Railway Company's diver was sent for, and having gone down, he succeeded in a comparatively short time in recovering the whole of the coins. The lady suitably rewarded the --diver. WELL-DESERVED PROMOTION FOR SERGEANT EVANS. I The Chief-constable of Glamorganshire has just promoted Police-sergeant John Evans, of the Barry Police District, to the charge of the Llandaff I District, embracing an extensive and important area of supervision. Sergeant Evans, who holds the different grade certificates for ambulance knowledge, during his residence at Barry has won the respect and approbation of the general body of the public, and his promotion to Llandaff is a source of satisfaction to his many friends. DR. LIVINGSTONE, BARRY DOCK, GETS A GOVERNMENT APPOINTMENT. We are pleased to understand that Dr. J. Living- stone, M.D., M.B., of Holton-road, Barry Dock. has just been appointed, under the provisions of the Merchant Shipping Act, medical inspector of sea- men by the Board of Trade for the port and district of Barry. ACCIDENT TO A BOY THROUGH TREE- CLIMBING. A twelve-year-old lad named David Morgan, son Mr. T. Morgan, boot manufacturer, Holton-road, Barry Dock, was playing on Monday evening last with some companions in a wood not far from the house, when he accidentally fell from a tree, and sustained a painful gash on the head. The inj ured lad was taken to Dr. Livingstone's surgery, and the wound was stitched. When picked up the boy was unconscious, and continued in a very weak state for some time. THE BARRY DOCK CHURCH. We understand that the appointment of organist at the Sc. Mary's Church, Barry Dock, vacant by thq resignation of Mr. W. H. Miller, has been offered and accepted by Mr. W. Llewellyn,of Barry. Mr. Llewellyn has already made a name for him- self in Cardiff (where he acted as organist for six years) as a musician of more than ordinary capa- bilities. THE HAY HARVEST NEAR BARRY. A field of hay was mown on the Cole- brook Farm, near Cadoxton, last Friday. Mr. Morgan Howell, the owner, considers the crop a fairly good one, under the circumstances of the long period of dry weather. There are also two or three heavy crops of gleaning corn between Cadox- ton and Dinas Powis. BARRY DISTRICT BILL-POSTING COM- PANY. Mr. T. Chatterton Thomas, son of Mr. W. Thomas, auctioneer, Cadoxton-Barry, has been appointed secretary to the Barry District Bill- posting Company, Limited, in succession to Mr. Lewis Lewis. ACCIDENT TO A SAILOR AT BARRY DOCK. On Tuesday afternoon last a seaman on board the ship, Craig Bouly, lying at Barry Dock, met with a painful accident, whereby two fingers of the right hand were smashed, one, according to surgical opinion, being permanently disabled. TABERNACLE WELSH CONGREGATIONAL CHAPEL, BARRY DOCK. Anniversary meetings in connection with the above chapel were held on Sunday and Monday last when the Rev. D. S. Davies, of Carmarthen, formerly of Bangor, and the Rev. D. M. Jenkins, of Liverpool, ably and infiuentially officiated. Amongst the popular preachers of Wales, Mr. Davies is considered a most eloquent one. He is rapid and clear in his mental operations, of an active imagination, and a warm temperment. His sermons are, as a rule, very practical, and pours -out his thoughts and feelings with im- passioned fluency and pathos, and he very often rises his congregation to a pitch of excitement. Mr. Jenkins is also a very popular preacher, amongst the Welsh Independents, and he delivered very powerful land effective sermons. The attendances was exceedingly good throughout, and collections were made at each service towards the building fund which amounted to £ 62. MAY THEY ENJOY THEMSELVES. The workmen employed at the Barry Graving Dock have decided to hold their annual outing shortly, the place selected being Ilfracombe. A committee of the men are making the arrange- ments, and one of the fastest steamboats in the channel will be chartered. The outing takes place on the 15th July, and it is very possible that the public may have an opportunity of going by the boat. The boat will probably leave Barry Dock about eight in the morning, thus affording all a good opportunity of spending a longer time at ilfracombe. WEDDING—REES—HOWELL. On Wednesday, the 14th inst., at Cardiff, Mr. John Rees, of the County Chief Constables' Offices, Canton, Cardiff, and eldest son of Inspector Rees, Central Police-station, Barry Dock, was married to Miss Howell, youngest daughter of Mr. Rees Howell, Gilbert-street, Barry-road, Cadoxton- Barry. We wish the young couple every happi- ness.
WORKMEN'S TICKETS ON THE BARRY LINE. LETTER FROM THE GENERAL MANAGER. Every day about 50 working men resident in the Barry district find itnecessary to journey to Cardiff for employment, failing to obtain work locally, and as it has been considered by certain members of the Trades' Council advisable to send a deputa- tion to the General Manager of the Barry Railway, steps were taken with that object. The principal cause of complaint was that working men could ill afford to send 6s. per week in railway fares, and it was hoped that the railway authorities would see their way clear to grant a reduction. The Sec- retary of the Barry Trades' Council, according to instructions, wrote to the General Manager of the Barry Company asking that a deputation might be received to lay the case before him. The following is a copyjof the letter received in reply :— Barry Railway, General Manager's Office, Barry Dock, 29th May, 1893. Dear Sir,- CHEAP TICKETS. I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 27th inst. respecting cheap work- men's tickets. This question is so surrounded with so many difficulties that, with every desire to meet your wishes, I find it impossible to do so. Yours truly, R. EVANS. Mr. J. Rees, Barry and District Trades' Council, Holton-road, Cadoxton.

GREAT INCREASE OF TRADE AND WORK AT BARRY DOCK, ——; TOTAL OF 2,074,999 TONS. I We are pleased to inform our readers that during the past few weeks there has been a great increase of trade at Barry Dock and of work in this port. Those engaged in the shipping trade have been working day and night, while the increase of trade has been very large. During last week no less than 83,269 tons of imports and exports were dealt with at the docks, and from the 1st of January to Saturday last the total was 2,074,999 tons. THE DEEP SEA ENTRANCE, The blasting operations at the deep sea entrance to Barry Dock is being proceeded with satis- factorily; the whole of the work is progress- ,r ing as rapidly as can be expected, and Mr. Joseph Bell, the resident engineer, is superintending the carrying out of the work.
MORE WORKS FOR BARRY. POSSIBILITIES* OF A VERY IM- PORTANT INDUSTRY BEING ESTABLISHED AT BARRY DOCK. It is whispered in a well-informed circle that there is every probability of the establishment of a very large and important Foundry business either at Barry Dock, or on the Moors, Cadoxton. It is said that the venture is contemplated by a well-known firm of iron founders in the Midlands, who yearly export a large number of steam engines to various countries. A representative of the above firm has been down in the district during the last week surveying sites, and he is much struck with the many advantages Barry Dock possess for exporting. The firm employ over 500 men, and we trust that Barry Dock will be selected out of the many places in view for the purposes of establishing the works. The advantages to Barry Dock by the establishment of such a work cannot be over-estimated. We trust in a few weeks to be able to give fuller and more certain information in the matter.
ACTIVITY AT THE T.1-7- GRAYING DOCK. Our many readers will be interested to learn that during the past few weeks trade has been very brisk at the Barry Graving Dock Company's Dry Docks, thus providing a considerable amount of work for a large number of men, upon whom, in many instances, large families are dependent for sustenance. The steamer Atalanta, of West Hartle- pool, owned by Messrs. Alison and Co., arrived in Barry Dock from the Baltic, where she sustained extensive damage through being in collision with icebergs. She is at present in the Dry Dock, and her repairs will probably be completed in a few days. Several other vessels are also undergoing a considerable amount of repairs.
BARRY INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL. REPORTED GIFT OF £ 1,000. MEMORIAL TO THE LATE illll. DAVID DAVIES. It was reported in a contemporary on Satur- day last that the widow of the late Mr. David Davies and Mr. Edward Davies, of Plas Dinam (his only son) had decided to give, as a memorial to the deceased gentleman, the sum of £ 1,000 for the erection of a reading-room at Barry. We are informed upon the highest authority that the above statements was based upon the original proposal, which has since been modified in" a;ccordance with the wishes of those inter- ested in the district in the direction of utilis- ing the whole amount (f 1,000) for educational purposes. It is reported that Mr. Edward Davies has expressed his willingness to give JE 1,000 to found scholarships for the Barry Intermediate School. Full particulars of the conditions attended to Mr. Davies' offer are not yet to hand, but it is believed that most, if not all, of the scholarships, will be reserved for children of workmen em- ployed by the Barry Railway Company. Another proviso attached to Mr. Davies' offer, it is said, is that the erection of the Barry Inte mediate School commences within three months from this date. There has been very great delay in this matter, but the fault does not lie with the local committee. The site is to be conveyed from the owners of the Wenvoe Castle Estate to the County Council Intermediate Committee, and there has been very great, and we cannot help thinking, very unnecessary delay in the completion of the conveyance.

TEA AND COMPETITIVE MEETINGS AT CADOXTON. On Wednesday afternoon a most successful tea meeting, in connection with the Welsh Baptists, was held at Mount Pleasant English Baptist Chapel. The proceeds of which are to be demoted towards the Building Fund of the proposed new chapel of the Welsh Baptists. We may state that the cake, bread, butter, and milk, and other re- quisites had been supplied gratuitously by' the following persons respectively — Messrs. T. Walters, John Evans, R. S. Thomas (Gibbons' Down), William Jones, D. Williams, David Rees, and several others. The following ladies presided at the tables — Mrs. W. Jones, Miss Jones. Mrs. T. Walters, Miss S. Thomas, Mrs. Spickett, Mrs. James James. Miss D. Evans, Miss George, Miss Rees, Mrs. Humphrey, Mrs. Evans, Mrs. Fido, Miss S. A. Jones, Mrs. John, Mrs. James, Mrs. Thomas, Mrs. Williams. Messrs. B. Davies, David Evans, James James. Rees John, John Humphreys, William Lewis, and several others rendered valuable assistance. The tea was well served and was a decided success. The best thanks are due to the members of the English Baptists for their kindness in placing the chapel at their disposal. Fully 300 partook of the excellent things which had been provided. The tables and chapel had been beautifully deco- rated by the ladies for the occasion. In THE EVENING a thoroughly good competitive meeting, intermixed with various solos was held at the chapel, the same being crowded to its utmost capacity. Mr. Thomas Thomas, agent to the Glamorgan Coal Company, occupied the chair in a fitting manner, and the secretarial duties had been carried out by Mr. D. M. John in an efficient manner. We feel confident that we are expressing the wish of all the members of the chapel by making special mention of Mr. Tom Price, the adjudicator, and Miss Eliza Davies, Cardiff, and the accompanist who accompanied them, all of whom gave their services gratuitously. Miss S. B. Thomas, Cert. R.A.M., Kingsland- crescent, very ably presided at the piano, she also having given her services gratuitously, as also did the Rev. W. Tibbott, who adjudicated on the recitations, &c. Messrs. Morgan Davies, who was the successful competitor on the des- criptive letter competition Thomas B. Thomas, on the baritone solo William Lewis and B. Bumford, on the impromptu dialogue com- petition, very kindly returned their respective prizes to the committee, as did also the choir leader, on behalf of which the secretary briefly acknowledged. The following is the programme —Pianoforte solo, Miss L.'Angove address, Chairman song, Dyna'r dyn a aiif a hi" Mr. Tom Price recitation competition, Pa le- mae'r Amen," six competitors, prize divided between Miss S.

Only one party com- peted, and the adjudicator, in awarding the prize to the Philadelphia Choir, Cadoxton, under the leadership of Mr. T. Walters, stated that they were well worthy of the prize, the rendering being a very good one throughout. At this stage the Rev. M. Isaac, as chairman of the committee, thanked all (whose names we cannot possibly. in- sert, owing to ithe exigencies of space) who had taken part in the day's proceedings. Mr. Tom Price sang the solo of Cymru Fydd," after which the proceedings closed. We publish the descriptive letter of Mr. Morgan Davies, the successful competitor, below. Although thir was the first appearance of Mr. Tom Price and Miss Eliza Davies, we feel sure they will ere long be amongst us again. We publish the following letter at the special } request of the committee and friends :—Descrip- tive letter of a Prodigal Son to his father for competitive meeting to be held at Mount Pleasant Baptist Chapel, Cadoxton, on 14th June, 189B. Mournful Terrace, The Island of Grief, Cadoxton, 9th June, 1893. My Beloved Father,—The mercy and patience of God to sinners is, that He sets up light after light, and waits year after year, and even invites men to come unto Him, that they may have life. He is in- comparable in forgiving iniquity, transgression and sin, hence I have offered supplications to such merci- ful!God for forgiveness of my transgressions against Him ard you, by being an exile from home for a period of over three years. I admit, my dear father, that I quitted your place without any cause whatever, where I was without any anxiety and care, at which time my sleep was sound, my health firm, and knew not what spleen langour and listlessness were, but rather at the abode of peace and plenty, and mingled with friends and acquaintances. After all I was unsatisfied with the numerous bless- ings I was surrounded with, and in a moment of mad irritations I stripped and deprived myself of a good home and a parental care, and broke through all ties of gratitude and of common humanity, I and trampled upon your most kind and affec- tionate counsels. Now, my dear father, I do not want to break your heart) by conveying to you the pursuits I have attended and the miseries I have been involved in since my unhappy departure from home, suffice it is for me to say, that I have almost sank into oblivion on more than one occasion and now being left penniless and friendless in a decomposed state like a lost sheep in the wilderness, pining under a broken constitution, I thank the Lord that I have, in this miserab'le state, been able to perceive my iniquities, and. in a condition of consciousness, I have made a solemn declaration to bury my old habits and out-worn experience in a deep grave of penitence. Of all the sorrows which I am here doomed to endure, none is so bitter as the recollection of my first departure from my dear home and my native village, and, by re-calling joys that I was there favoured with, it touches in my bosom every spring of painful sensibility. In these agonising moments, how relieving is the thought of a pos- sible reconciliation with you. Therefore, my dear father, I appeal to you in the most penitent and obedient heart, shall I fly to you for refuge By your own virtue, and by all that is sacred and all that is dear to you, Oh receive, receive an un- deserving son back to your house as your own property. Hoping tnat you, my dear mother, and all the other members of the family are enjoying pure health, With best love, From your sorrowing and penitent son, MANASSEH.

Superintendent Jones prosecuted, and Mr. James Phillips appeared for the defence. The evidence for the prosecution was that on Monday evening last the accused went to Mr. Spickett's house to repair a mangle. There was no one in the house at the time but the girl, and she. it was alleged, was thrown on the table in the kitchen by the accused. The girl struggled violently with him, and eventually got free, and went out to the front. Im the evening she told her young man of what had happened, and he, with ner brother, went to the prisoner's house, aad brought him face to face with the girl, who then repeated her story in his presence. Defendant then, it was said, apologised to the girl, and bpgged her brother not to bring the case against him. Mr. Phillips, in cross-examination, sought to show that the incident was merely a "lark, and that no harm was meant. The Bench decided to commit defendant to the Quarter Sessions. The defence was reserved. Mr. Phillips pointed out that the defendant bore an excellent character, and was a member of and a leader of the singing at one of the chapels at Pontypridd. Bail was granted, defendant himself in £ 50 and two sureties of £ 25 each.

BARRY DOCK POLICE COURT. — —♦ THURSDAY, June 15th.-Beiore T. Morel (in the chair), and Mr. T. R. Thompson. THE CLOSING OF BEGGAR'S WELL. Mr. J. A. Hughes, clerk to the Barry and Cadox- ton Local Board, made an applications for the closing of Beggar's Well. Mr. Lloyd Meyrick opposed the application on behalf of the Misses Matthews, who use the well. Mr. J. A. Hughes, having briefly re-stated the facts, said that, as instructed, a further sample of the water had been taken at early morning. This sample had been submitted to the analyst (Mr. Tom Hughes), who stated that it was moderately fit for drinking purposes. Therefore the Local Board did not wish to have the well closed, but as under the Section under which the application was made, the magistrates had power to make any other order, he asked them to make an order as to what they were to do to preserve this well. They proposed laying an iron pipe from the well to the end of the culvert. Mr. Lloyd Meyrick, on behalf of the Misses Matthews, agreed to this as a compromise the work to be carried out at the expense of the Board. For other Police-court proceeding# see papa 3.
