THE INTENTIONS OF THE BARRY RAILWAY COMPANY. In our news columns this week we publish a fall report of the half-yearly meeting of the Barry Dock and Railways Company, held at Cardiff, on Friday last, when speeches were delivered expressing complete assurance at the fact that the company's great undertaking is at present in a state of efficiency and prosperity equalled by no previous year. As we have already indicated on former occasions, the deputy chairman an- nounced to the satisfaction of the large body of proprietors present that the directors had determined to proceed with the construction of the first section of the new dock forthwith. The deep water lock works, Mr Hood explained, were not proceeding as satisfactorily as the directors might wish, but when completed, he was confident the deep lock would exercise a very considerable influence indeed upon the continued growth of the trade of the port. With regard to the labour conditions of the Com- pany, the deputy chairman strongly advocated a principle which is gradually becoming more popular in the county, viz., to formulate a scheme for the division of profits in rightful proportion between capital and labour, a scheme which would contribute as largely as any towards the subjugation of labour dis- putes and the eventual abolition of strikes. For our own part, we cannot but think that such a course as this would ] prove a very important factor in the furtherance of the general welfare of the company's undertaking. No reference, we are sorry to state, was made to the proposed Vale of Glamorgan Railway, but the directors are fully bent upon assisting to the utmost of their power in the pro- motion of a bill in the present session of Parliament for the construction of an im- portant new line of railway, known as the East Glamorgan Railway, which will place Barry Dock in direct communica- tion with several important sections of the Welsh coalfields which, hitherto, have been all but inaccessible. The further development of Barry Island and the carrying out of extension and other works on the existing railway system, were questions which likewise received careful attention on the part of the shareholders, and, viewed as a whole, coupled with the fact that a dividend of nine per cent. was declared upon the profits of the last six months, the half-yearly meeting of the Barry Company just held may be characterised as one of the most interest- ing and noteworthy of the entire series. THE NEED OF A PUBLIC RECREATION GROUND FOR BARRY. THIS is not the first occasion upon which we have advanced the claims of the people of Barry to a public recreation and athletic ground. At the annual dinner of the Barry Cyclists' Club, held last week, a very sensible suggestion was made. It was to the effect that represen- tatives of the athletic clubs in the town should unite in an appeal to the local landowners asking that a suitable piece of land should be placed at their disposal for the purposes named. We need hardly point out the moral responsibility which devolves upon the land owners to make reasonable provision for the needs of the towns- people in this respect. Land is rapidly being taken up for building and other purposes, and unless some definite course is taken it is probable that in the course of two or three months it will be too late, for the whole of the remaining land may I at any moment be caught up by specula- tors for the continued extension of the town. No time, therefore, should be lost in approaching the proper authorities, and we hope that the appeal for a gift of land to the town will not be made in vain. BARRY PORT SANITARY AUTHOR- ITY AND A FEVER HOSPITAL. THERE can be no doubt that the Barry Port Sanitary Authority scored a decided moral victory over the Cardiff Corpora- tion as a result of the Local Government Board inquiry held at Cadoxton on Wednesday last. For some time past, as our readers are aware, the Local Board, in its capacity as Port Sanitary Authority, has done its utmost to secure a piece of land on the Flat Holms for utilisation as the site of a fever hospital for port cases, but not only have the Cardiff Corportion rejected the application, but they also insultingly ignored the advances of the Barry authorities. The members of the Local Board, therefore-much against their natural will, we have no doubt—then turned their attention in the direction of scheduling Sully Island for the purposes named, and in the course of the proceed- ings on Wednesday, Mr J. Arthur Hughes, the clerk and solicitor to the Local Board, informed the Government inspectors that the Local Board were prepared to withdraw the application for a provisional order with regard to Sully Island if the Cardiff Cor- poration would grant a site on the Flat Holms. Mr E. W. M. Corbett speaking on behalf of the Marquess of Bute, the owner of the Flat Holms, went so far as to state it was his opinion that Lord Bute would grant a lease of a site on Flat Holms to the Barry Local Board. This assurance has taken the wind com- pletely out of the sails of the Cardiff Cor- poration, and we shall be exceedingly surprised if, after the result of the inquiry this week, the Local Government Board, instead of empowering the Local Board to schedule Sully Island, will take steps to prevail upon the Cardiff Corporation to sub-let a suitable site on the Flat Holms for the erection of an infectious hospital I for the port.
LOCAL AND GENERAL V THE NURSING ASSOCI- ATION AT BARRY. The nursing stal this popular institution continue to do excellent work. Brought forward from December were 70 cases on the books under treatment applications received during January, 62 convalescent during the same period, 50 died, 3 removed for various causes, 5 attended during the month, 132 passed on to February, 74 number of visits paid during January, 1,509. I BARRY AND THE LIFE-BOAT SATURDAY MOVEMENT. In view of the re- markable success at- tending and resulting from the introduction of the Life-boat Satur- day movement, and the formation of ladies' committees initiated in Manchester and Sal- ford in 1891, and so strongly advocated last year by H.R.H. the Prince of Wales, the committee of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution have decided to take steps to develop the movement in all the principal centres of industry and population throughout the country. With this end in view they have appointed, in the first instance the organising secretaries-Mr William Martin, of Glasgow, for Scotland, &c., and Messrs A. J. Boyle and J. Reginald Roberts for districts in England and Wales. These gentlemen are to enter on their duties at once, and one will visit Barry on a date which will be announced. THE FORTHCOMING LOCAL nOARD ELECTION AT BARRY. The air will in future be full of rumours of candi- dates and intending candidates for the forthcoming Local Board election in the Barry district. In our last issue we announced that Mr E. S. Johnson had determined to con- test the west ward, and Mr D. T. Alexander the south ward. The announcement in the case of the former gentleman is, we find, quite correct, but, with regard to the division of the district which Mr Alexander will champion, misapprehension seems to have arisen on our part. It is true that Mr Alexander last year received an influential deputation of ratepayers from the south ward asking him to offer him- self for election, but in deference to the wishes of a strong deputation representing the west ward, which had previously waited upon him, urging the prior claims of that division upon his attention, Mr Alexander has not yet given the electors of the south ward any assurance that he will come forward, but rather, for the present, his inclinations are in favour of the west ward, one of the seats in which will become vacant in April, when Mr Robert Forrest, J.P., St. Fagan'S, will retire by rotation. It is premature to anticipate whether Mr Forrest or any other member of the board of directors of the Barry Company will come forward for this seat, but in the event of either of these gentlemen doing so Mr Alexander will probably retire in his favour, and then the invitation to contest the south ward will, no doubt, be reputed. As president of the Chamber of Trade, Mr Alexander enjoys an extensive range of popularity in the district, and we are fully persuaded that his candidature for the suffrages of the electors will secure for him an easy victory. THE PROPOSED 1THLIC OFFICES FOR BARRY. The members of the Barry Local Board are trifling away •, valuable opportunity in connec- tion with the matter of securing a site for the erection of central public oSces for Barry. As stated by Mr Gaorge Thomas at the last meeting, the question of site is a much vexed one, for although it has occupied the attention of the Board, off and on, for fully three years, the members are in exactly the same position as when they originally ook the matter up. Several schemes have ueen under consideration, but they have all, more or less, collapsed. Mr Benjamin Lewis urges that the public offices should be built in Court-road, Cadoxton, where the Board have about seven acres of land on a long lease at a rental of f25 per acre. Dr O'Donnell and other members believe that the favoured site should be near the police-court in Holton-road; whereas Mr Meggitt strenuously advocates an extension of the Gas and Water Company's offices for the various purposes alluded to. There seem to be no two members, however, who are agreed as to either of the schemes set for- ward, and the matter has, therefore, been prac- tically shelved, so that there is reason to fear nothing final will be arrived at until the con- stitution of the Board will undergo a change, or the members, by sheer force of circumstances, will be irresistibly led to a crisis, and public offices will have to be built upon a site which, compared with many now available, may prove extremely inconvenient.
