BARRY AND CADOXTON HEALTH COMMITTEE. The monthly meeting of the Health Committee of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board wag held on Friday evening last at Cadoxton, present—Dr P. J. O'Donnell (chairman), Mr J. J. Williams, Dr Neale (medical officer), Mr J. C. Pardoe (surveyor). Mr J. Arthur Hughes (clerk), and Inspector A. j E. Leyshon. THE INSPECTOR'S REPORT. The report of the sanitary inspector for the past month was read, the principal features of the same being as follows :— Inspector Leyshon drew attention to the fact that there was no tipping depot for scavenging in the Barry district, and a discussion which followed showed that there was a difficulty to secure a suitable site for the purpose.—It was resolved that the surveyor report upon the matter by the next meeting. The registered cowsheds, dairies. &c., in the dis- trict were reported to be in a satisfactory condi- tion, and attention was drawn by the chairman to a case in Churchill-terrace, Cadoxton, in which an unregistered cowshed was not in a proper state, the inspector remarking that he had served notice upon the owner. i There was only one infected house in the district during the past month. The number of nuisances inspected and notices served during the month was 52 complied with, 42. The report of house to house inspection showed that 200 houses had been visited, 32 defects and nuisances being discovered, and there were 54 houses without water. In connection with port sanitary duties, 90 vessels had been visited, on six of which nuisances were discovered. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS ORDERED. The Surveyor reported upon a large number of cases in which drain pipes were not of the required dbpth, and there being several in which the Board's L% nbtice had been disregarded for several months, it was resolved to take legal proceedings against the offenders. SEAMEN'S BOARDING-HOUSES. Application was made by a householder in Wood-street. Barry Dock, for a boarding-house license, but after a remark by the clerk it was felt that no further license be granted till the new bye- laws came into operation. NIGHT SCAVENGING. A discussion took place on the subject of night scavenging, the inspector stating there were still several houses in the Cadoxton end of the district which had to be scavenged, but the clerk suggested that the Board should give notice not to do the work after a certain date.
SERIOUS CHARGE AGAINST A BARRY SAILOR. A CHILD DETAINED FOR TWO DAYS AND OUTRAGED IN A STABLE. On Thursday evening last a German sailor named Robert Miller was arrested by Inspector Rees and Acting-sergeant Ben Davies and con- veyed to the Central Police Station on the serious charge of indecently assaulting a little girl under the age of sixteen at Cadoxton. The circumstances of the case were most extraordinary. On the previous Tuesday the girl, Alice Webb, aged 15, daughter of Mr James Webb, boarding-house keeper, Vere-street, Cadoxton. mysteriously dis- appeared from home, and no tidings of her where- abouts were gleaned till Thursday afternoon, when it was found that she had boen kept by the prisoner in a disused stable at Barry Dock, where the oeence with which he was charged was alleged to have been committed. The accused, who was arrested at a boarding-house kept by a Mrs Phillips, in Courtenay-road, Cadoxton. in replying to the charge said the girl told him she was over seventeen years of age. lHiHer was detained in custody. PRISONER BEFORE THE MAGISTRATES. Ajb the office of the clerk to the Penarth magis- trates on Saturday last, a seaman named Robert Miller was remanded to Barry Dock Police-court on Thursday next on a charge of criminally assaulting the girl named Alice Webb on the pre- vious Wednesday evening. The magistrates present were Mr O. H. Jones and General Lee.
A POLICE OFFICER ROBBED AT BARRY DOCK. On Saturday last the premises occupied by Dock Police-sergeant Pugh, at, Mill Cottage, Barry Dock. were burglariously visited, and a. robbery of poultry took place. Two prime ducks were killed, with the intention of being carried away, but the household being disturbed by some noise about the place, the thieves took to their heels and dis- appeared, leaving the lifeless birds lying on the ground close by. Sergeant, Pugh has not yet been able to trace the u a welcome visitors, who ran away across the Moors.

The editor, whose pencilled line I've lately read with certain shrinking, Has caused this curious mood of mine- In fact, I'm thinking And troubles of a schoolboy life My brooding thought recalls again, When every passing day was rife With Latin pain. When my all piteous eye would watch, With anguish lively and intense, a Cane, which seemed alive to catch My slips in menxa. And if in domhius I failed, And stammered through a list of errors, A Dominic my hand assailed With penal terrors. Or fixed me with a stony gaze That gave my nerves a frightful shock, While doubt attacked me in the maze Of Hie, IIau., Hoc.

SHEBEENING IN THE BA.RRY DISTRICT. PUBLIC MEETING AT BARRY DOCK. THE MAGISTRATES AND THE POLICE. RESOLUTIONS OF ADMONITION AND ENCOURAGEMENT. A public meeting, which was fairly well attended, was held at the Bible Christian Chapel, Barry Dock, on Thursday evening last. for the purpose of dealing with the question of the shebeening evil in the district. The chair was occupied by County Councillor W. B. Shepherd. Penarth, and amongst those present were the Revs J. Honey, W. Williams, Christmas J. Lewis, and T. P. John, Messrs J. Pearce (Navvies' Mis- sion), J. O. Davies, F. Inglis (secretary of the Barry District Temperance Council, under whose auspices the meeting was convened), J. Cruise. &c. -The Chairman, in opening, said he was con- vinced that those in authority in that district did Hot always put the law into execution, and that in certain recent cases there had been a fearful mis- carriage of justice. If the magistrates failed in their duty it behoved Christians to see that illegali- ties were not committed with impunity. (Hear, hear.) They had now a different type of police omcer instead of men who could be bribed with a bottle of beer, they had constables and officers with backbone. (Applause.) He considered that the public would be neglecting their duty if they did not support the police. Magistrates were too often interested in the liquor traffic, and he would like to see the day when no man interested would be eligible for appointment as a justice of the peace. (Applause.)-The Rev Christmas J. Lewis was deputed to propose the first [resolution, which was as follows That this meeting, being of opinion that recent cases of shebeening in the locality have not received the attention and punishment they deserved, desires to urge upon the magistrates the necessity of prompt and effective dealing with offenders, and also encourag- ing the police in bringing ca.ses of illicit drinking under their notice. Speaking to the resolution, Mr Lewis referred to a recent case of alleged shebeening at Barry, in which the defendant was dismissed in face of the police evidence forthcoming, and said he was pleased to perceive in the edi- torial comments of the Barry Dock News of the 9th ultimo comments condemning the action of the magistrates in the matter. (Cheers.) It was. therefore, incumbent that all interested in the moral well-being of the district should protest against what appeared to be an attitude of laxity and undue leniency on the part of the police. (Hear. hear.)-The Rev W. Williams, in seconding, spoke in strong terms of the prevailing evil in the district, and said. viewing the fact that drunken- ness was rampant, it should be borne in mind that the magistracy were largely responsible for the morality of the country, and if the magistrates were lax and careless it was not to be wondered at that shebeening and other sources of social corrup- tion were so rife. He hoped, therefore, that the resolution submitted to the meeting would bring forth good fruit in the district. The question of shebeening was one which must be faced, and he hoped the magistrates would strengthen the hands of the police as much as possible in the direction of stamping out the evil. (Cheers.)—Mr J. O. Davies, who supported, said he was there that evening in the interests of public morality. He regretted they had been obliged to ask a gentleman from Penarth to come to preside over that meeting. but he trusted that the result of the meeting would be a source of satisfaction and recompense to Mr Shepherd for the trouble he had taken in the matter. (Hear, hear.) There had been a great cry for working-men magistrates, and he hoped that cry would be continued till they succeeded, for he had the highest possible opinion of the integrity and good judgment of all the labour magistrates he had the pleasure of knowing. (Hear, hear.) He fully approved of the comments made in the Barry Dock New* on the subject of shebeening a fortnight ago. Magistrates were responsible to God and the public for their actions, and he felt it was time for the public to assume a bold front on this question, and show by this and similar meetings that the public were fully alive to their own interests, and were determined that morality should have the highest place in the minds of those who administered justice in their midst. (Cheers.)-The resolution was then put to the meeting and carried with acclamation.-The Rev. T. P. John was the mover of the next resolution as follows That this meeting heartily thanks the police for the energy they have displayed of late in dealing with shebeening cases in the district, and pledges itself to support and assist them to the utmost of its power in the effort to bring to justice those who evade the law and indulge in this demoralising traffic. The mover said it was a very pleasant thing to render thanks when thanks were due, and went on to refer to the difficulties which the police fre- quently had to encounter, so that they were entitled to the encouragement and prayers of the public in the direction of doing their duty.—Mr J. Pearce seconded in an amusing and effecti ve speech, in the course of which he said there had been a great deal of improvement in the conduct of the police in the district lately, and he hoped they would be further encouraged by the magistrates. (Cheers.)—The Chairman in supporting, expressed a hope that the law dealing with the drunkard- maker would be set in m tion as well as that dealing with the poor drunkard himself. The temperance party were now appealing to the high tribunal of public opinion — they had appealed to Cassar and to Cassar they would go. (Cheers.) — The motion was agreed to unanimously. — Mr F. Inglis proposed a vote of thanks to the chairman for presiding, and the Rev J. Honey, in seconding, expressed the pleasure he felt at the decided improvement shown in the conduct of the local police lately. (Hear, hear).—Acknowledging the vote of thanks, Mr Shepherd said the County Council were ripe on the temperance question, a fact which was evidenced by the resolution passed by a large majority some time ago in favour of the Local Veto Bill. They must not, however, be satisfied until they had absolute control of the police. (Applause.)—The meeting terminated with the singing of a hymn. PUBLIC MEETING AT BARRY. Another public meeting in connection with the prevalence of shebeening in the district was held on Friday evening last at the Welsh Congrega- tional Chapel, Hitrh-street, East Barry, when Mrs Inglis occupied the chair, being supported by the Revs H. G. Payn. W. W. Williams, J. Honey, Mr F. Inglis. and Mr G. Rutter. There was not a good attendance. Mrs Inglis, opening the meeting, referred to the difficulty in securing a local gentle- man to preside at that meeting, and then went on to explain the great advance made by British women in the endeavour to place themselves on an equality with men. Mrs Inglis described several miserable homes she had visited in Barry, where the husband invariably attended shebeens. She was in favour of heavy fines being imposed upon shebeeners,and they were holding public meetings to influence those who had this power in their hands. (Hear, hear.) It was gratifying to know that the police were doing their best to put down the evil.—The Rev J. Honey was then called upon to propose the first resolution given above. After doing so, Mr Honey said this matter was both important and pressing. With the view of altering the state of things in the district, there had been much anxiety experienced, and sometimes opposi- tion was shown, but he was sure the promoters of this movement had not laboured in vain, for shebeening and other forms of drunkenness were not so prevalent now as was the case some time ago. (Hear, hear.) It was well understood by those in a position to judge that the police had been stimulated to action in the matter, and circumstances had certainly justified a change in this respect. The police were. now acting vigour- ously, but, unfortunately, the magistrates threw the cases brought before them overboard. These meetings would be misunderstood by some per- sons, but that was always the case when vested interests were concerned. He (Mr Honey) thought they had a true grievance with regard to the action of the magistrates, the speaker then referring to the decision of the bench at Barry Dock Police Court in connection with several cases of alleged glaring cases of shebeening. and said that if pity influenced the decisions of the magistrates it was certainly misguided pity. (Hear, hear.) From all points of view it was full time to act in the matter, and. he would challenge the magistrates in question to come forward and listen to facts, and he (the speaker) was sure it would do them good. (Laughter and applause.) -The Rev W. W. Williams seconded the resolu- tion, and said he was sorry these meetings were bound to be held to show the proper way to those who should be leading the people. It was felt that something should be done, and he trusted the result of these meetings would be that the magis- trates would not dream of acting otherwise than what would be consistent with law and reason. (Cheers.) He couid not agree with the present custom of appointing magistrates, for many now acting on the bench were not fit to administer the law. (Hear, hear.)—Mr G. Rutter supported, and referred in particular to the recent shebeening case in Barry which the magistrates dismissed. and which he considered to be a clear instance of miscarriage of justice. By the bench acting in this manner, he said, the police were disheartened, for they would not trouble to expose cases which were to be dismissed, or only a small fine im- posed.-The resolution was then carried unani- mously, and the Rev H. G. Payn moved the next resolution, which was seconded in a practical speech by Mr W. Davies, and also adopted with unanimity.-The meeting closed with prayer and the singing of the Doxology.
BUFFALOISM AT BARRY DOCK, The third annual dinner of the Prince of Wales" lodge of the R.A.O.B., was held on Thurs- day evening, the 22nd ultimo, at the Institute, Thompson-street. Barry Dock, when Sir D. W. Jenkins ably presided, being supported by Primos W. Liles, J. J. Taylor, and other members of the order, amongt those present being Primo C. Marsh m and Mrs Marsh, Mrs D. W. Jenkins, Primos H. H. Cottle, F. J. Melvin, J. J. Melvin, Bros A. Jones, Ravenhill, Radcliffe, J. Williams. &c. The dinner laid out by the genial and competent steward and stewardess, Mr and Mrs G. Guy, was thoroughly enjoyed by all present. After the dinner, the chairman proposed the Royal Toast, which was received with applause. Song Thy face I never see," Bro. A. Guy song. Daddy would nt boy me a bow-wow," Primo W. Liles song. The ship that carries me home," "Sir" D. W. Jenkins; song, Truth I always tell." Bro. A. Guy. The toast of Success to Buffaloism and the Prince of Wales' Lodge," was submitted by the chairman, who first announced that very little notice had been given of the dinner, and, consequently, the attendance was not so large as it might otherwise have been. He concluded by wishing success to the lodge. (Cheers.)-Primo W. Liles, in respond- ing, gave an interesting account of the inception of the Prince of Wales lodge-its adversities and success. Primo Liles stated a large number of charity calls were made upon this branch, which accounted for its funds being rather low at times. The Prince of Wales lodge was secend to the Loyal Victoria lodge. and the latter was second to none in the United Kingdom, and the members endeavoured to do the greatest amount of good for true-hearted Buffaloes. (Applause.)- The Trade of the District" was proposed by Primo C. Marsh, who described trade as being very unsatisfactory at present.—Bros. Ravenhill and Radcliffe responded, and were confident that with the start of the new dock at Barry trade in the district would greatly improve in every depart- ment.—Song, Sweet BellMahone," Mr O. Harris and the chairman afterwards proposed Success to the R.A.O.B. Institute, Barry Dock."—Respond- ing, Primo J. J. Taylor stated that the success attending the movement last year had been quite sufficient to thoroughly gratify the members, and he was sure the institute would prosper still more in the future. (Cheers.) They had been able to accomplish good work during the year in many ways, philanthropy being one of the main objects of the order. (Hear, hear.) He had been pleased to see a letter in the Press against the drinking clubs, and said no one who knew anything of this institute of the R.A.O.B. could truthfully ray that anything occurred, or was carried on, simi'ar to that at the drinking clubs in the district referred to. (Cheers.) Songs having been well rendered by Primo W. Liles, the Chairman, Primo C. R. Ford, Bro. J. Grey, and Messrs J. Johnson, and J. Wisnom, thanks were returned to the steward and stewardess for the excellent manner in which the dinner arrangements had been attended to, and also to Mrs D. W. Jenkins and Mrs Thomas for their valuable assistance.-Otber toasts we-e sub- mitted during the evening, including the Press, Visitors, Ladies, and Chairman, Mrs Marsh re- sponding on behalf of the ladies.-Primo C. R. Ford and A. Guy efficiently accompanied the songs, and flowers for the tables were kindly lent by Mr Radcliffe, Holton-road. The evening was a most enjoyable one, and described as the most pleasant ever held at the institute.
WHY LORD ROMILLY WAS CAST OFF. As stated the other day. the engagement between Lord Romilly. of Porthkerry, Barry, and Miss Violet Grey-Egerton is broken off. Mr Riversdale Walrond. it stems, has been in love with the young lady for the last three years. and only lack of this world's goods prevented the marriage from coming off before. Miss Grey-Egerton fortunately became aware before it was too late (says Woman) that there was only one chance of happiness before her. The young couple, who are overcome with joy, will shortly be married.
"IT TOUCHES THE SPOT." Aye, that is what HOJIOCEA" does. And dost it quickly, too-whether it's a toothache or neuralgia, with all their shooting pains, or eczema, with its painful and distressing irritation—or piles, that make thousands of lives wretched. Rheuma- tism in the joints or muscles has been cured even of years' standing-while for cuts, burns, and bruises it's far, very far, ahead of any ointment that has ever been put before the public. LORD CARRICK says HOXOCKA cured him of bleeding piles, when all else failed that he gave some to a labourer who was lamed by a stone falling upon him, whom it cured. A woman had a pais in the elbow and could not bend it for a year, and it cured her, and another used it for scurvy on her leg, and it was doing her good—one letter closes from him with the words, It is the most wonderful stuff that I ever came across. LORD COMBERMERE says HOMOCEA did him more good than any embrocation he had ever need for rheumatism. TESTIMONIAL FROM THE GREAT AFRICAN EXPLORER, HENRY M. STANLEY. Whitehall, London. "Dear Sir,-Your oint- ment, called HOHOCXA, was found to be the most sooth- ing and efficacious unguent that I could possibly have for my fractured limb, as it seems to retain longer than 'any other, that oleaginous- ness PO requisite for perfect and efficient massage. The fault of embrocations, gene- rally, is that they hardest and require warmth, where- as yours, besides being particularly aromatic, is as soft as oil, and almost instantly mollifying in the case of severe inflammation.—Yours faithfully, HZNKT M. STANLEY." Remember that HOXOCEA subdues inflammation and allays irritation almost as soon as alppliecl. All wholesale houses stock HOMOCKA. It can be obtained from Chemists and others at Is. lid. or 2s. 9d. per box, or will be sent by post for Is. 3d. and 3s. from the wholesale agency, 2i, Hamilton Spare, Birkenhead.
