BARRY AND PENARTH LOCAL HOARDS AND THE PARISH COUNCILS ACT. THE Official Circular issued last week by thq Local Government Board, explanatory of the provisions of the new Local Government (or Parish Councils) Eng- land and Wales Act is an interesting document, for it is calculated to remove a considerable amount of doubt and mis- understanding which seem to exist in the public mind as to how and when the Act will become operative. The principal feature of the circular, so far as it applies to the Barry and Penarth Local Boards, is that which applies to the annual election of members, which, in ordinary course, would take place in April, but which, under the new order of things, will not take place this year, inasmuch as Urban and Rural District Councils will take the place of all Urban and Rural Sanitary Authorities, and parishes in any rural district will be represented on the Board of Guardians by the persons elected as Rural District Coun- cillors, guardians as such being only elected in parishes in urban districts. The first elections, under the new Act, of Guardians and District Couucillors will be held on the 8th of November next, or on such later date or dates in the year 1894 as the Board may fix, and the persons elected will come into office on the second Thursday next after their election, or such other day not more than seven days earlier or later as may be fixed by or in pursuance of rules made by the Board in relation to their election. Upon the day on which the first guardians or urban or rural district councillors elected under the Act come into office, the persons who are then members of boards of guardians or urban or rural sanitary authorities will cease to hold office but until that day the perso s who, at the passing of the Act, were guardians or members of urban sanitary authorities for districts other than boroughs will continue in office notwithstanding any want of qualification, as if the term of office for which they were elected expired on that day, and except for the purpose of filling casual vacancies, or of electing additional guardians, where the number is increased, no further elections will be held. Hence the guardians and members of urban sanitary authorities who would have gone out of office in April next but for the passing of the Act, will continue in office until November, and will then retire, and the elections which would otherwise have been held in April will not take place. No further steps, therefore, will be taken with a view to any such election, so that a good deal of disappointment is naturally felt amongst intended candidates and others in consequence of the fact that the contests which it was intended should take place in April have been thus in- voluntarily postponed till towards the close or the year.

LOCAL AND GENERAL NOTES The Christian Com- monwealth recently is THE SALVATION ARMY seemed to Buffer a A MOVEMENT OF THE good deal of concern PAST IN WALES? as to whether the Salvation Army movement in the Principality was a thing of the past. In the strictly Welsh-speaking districts we agree with a North Wales contemporary that such is the case, but in localities where Anglicism has taken firm hold upon the language of the people this great revivalistic movement fairly holds its own. Dealing with General Booth's Social Scheme, the Carnarvon and Denbigh, Herald declares the opinion that Wales did its part and did it well considering the way the Principality has been neglected during the past year or two by the Salvation Army. It contends that the leaders of the Salvation Army appear to completely ignore the Welsh work, and states that from reports received from North and South Wales it would seem that the purely Welsh "forward movements" of both Calvinistic Methodist and the Wesleyans will soon supplant the Salvation Army in the Principality unless the local leaders of the Army can manage to show a little more com- mon sense, tact, and enter more into the feelings of the people to whom they have been sent. It appears that of late the Salvation Army has been led in Wales by English officers, who have failed to commend themselves to the Welsh people, and a number of the best corps in North Wales have ceased to exist. Experience has demonstrated over and over again that the English and Welsh work must be carried on separately in Wales, but General Booth has failed to make this discovery, and the Army is rapidly becoming a movement of the past. The members of the Penarth Local PENARTH LOCAL BOARD Board seem deter- AND THE mined to secure for BARRY RAILWAY COMPAXY. their constituency the privileges of through trains and interchange passenger tickets between Penarth and Barry. The board have been agitating in this direction for some time, the negociations with the Barry and Taff Vale Railway Cbm- panies reaching a crisis a fortnight ago, when Mr W. Mein, the secretary of the former com- pany, wrote to the Penarth local authority stating that, in consequence of the fact that only a few passengers availed themselves of the Taff Vale trains between Cadoxton and Penarth, coupled with the fact that fully 20,000 persons were carried over the Barry Railway every week, the Barry directors could not see their way clear to make the arrangement proposed by the Local Board. The latter, however, are not satisfied, and have, consequently, instructed their clerk to prepare a case for submission to the Railway Commissioners, in the hope, it is stated, of forcing the hands of the Barry Company to grant the facilities asked for. I One of our Cardiff contemporaries (seems THE PROPOSED COUNTY inclined to ridicule th, COURT FOR BARRY. idea that Barry needs a County Court. At. I the same time it is candid enough to admit that it would be a convenience to the commercial and trading community to be supplied with an institution of this kind. Sometime last ye.u' application was made in a similar direction by the Local Board, but hitherto without success, and the Chambers of Trade, the Grocers' Association, and other bodies representative of the general public of the district, have now again taken, the matter up, and have determined to urge upon the Local Board to once more resort to an appeal to the proper quarter. But," says the 11 extenr^Mad', "the Lord Chancellor is., likely to be greatly influenced in his decision by the practicability of the proposal without in- creasing expense and without depriving Cardiff of any of that share of attention which it receives from the judge at present. Logical1 we see but very little in this. The idea, tAJ our mind, is practicable if only from the point of view that a community of fifteen thous»" persons has sprung up at Barry within th, few years, and is, therefore, entitled to same consideration as is already paid to localitie; containing even smaller populations. Thr1 arguments set forth by our contemporary wew* surely not those which influenced the Lon6 Chancellor when he granted an occasionJ court from Pontypridd to the Rhondda Valley sometime ago. There are hundreds of plaint from the Barry district, at every, sitting of th8 Cardiff Court, and all that the trading com" munity of Barry ask for is that under tlK circumstances public convenience may be cot e sidered to the extent, at least, of holding l~ sitting of the County Court in their midst, saift 1!1 every two A question has engaged the atte THE MORALITY OF OUR tion of the Miniated ?
