MRS. GRUNDY'S JOTTINGS A resident of Barry Dock last week stated his intention of visiting the tables at Monte Carlo. He reached Cardiff, where he spent all his money —a Jubilee two-shilling piece-and on the follow- ing morning he was in his place at the dooks. Thousands of people visited Barry Island on Sunday last for the purpose of seeing the ship 'Tanduara, which still lies on the rocks." The first annual dinner in connection with the Cadoxton-Barry Section of the Typographical Association will be held at the Royal Hotel, Cadoxton, on Friday evening, the 6th proximo, when Mr J. Jewel Williams, Tynewydd, will (preside. ♦ It was stated in this column last week that 15,000 children die annually from tight-lacing. Of course, I should have said women. ± Mr Morgan B. Williams, of Killay, Swansea, is the high sheriff of Glamorganshire for the coming year. It is now considered well nigh certain that the Lord Chancellor will appoint one or two new magistrates for the Barry district within the next few days. ■* Police-inspector John F. Giddings, of the Neath Division, has just been appointed superintendent, and will be stationed at the new headquarters at Barry Dock. What next ? The two men, one blind and the other with one-leg, seen nearly every day near the railway station at Barry Dock attempted recently to fight each other, but the squabble ended amicably, as the one-legged man would not agree to catch hold of each other's collars so as to make the fight more telling." Mr David Morgan, Woodland House, Penarth, has a thrilling story to tell. There's a gorilla in it. » Over 3.400 tons of pitwood were imported to Barry Dock last week. I was quite shocked to see a young couple-boy and girl-smoking cigarettes near the Buttrills, Barry, recently. The export and import shipments at Barry Dock last week amounted to the splendid total of 102,947 tons 11 cwts. There is at least one awful would-be punster at Barry Dock. And people wonder why trade is so bad. One of the clerks of work in the Barry district is seldom seen without his gamp." an article which, I hear, has been faithful to about three generations. Mr E. W. Waite, of the Barry and Cadoxton Gas and Water Company's offices, is a member of the Cardiff Technical Instruction Committee, and he bAs succeeded in securing for music a place amongst the list of subjects to be taught in the technical school of the county borough. The same may be said of the reading public of Barry. A leading Melbourne publisher says that 90 per cent. of the women frequenters of the circulat- ing libraries in the Colonies read novels almost exclusively, and 75 per cent of the men. Mr Gwilym Evans, J.P., the enterprising pro- prietor of the celebrated quinine bitters known by his name, has just erected new business and club premises which are an acquisition to the town of Llauelly/ The Barry Trades and Labour Council succeeded in placing five additional Labour nominees on the Burial Board at the annual election last Thursday evening. # » Another of the foibles of fickle fashion. The Prince of Wales, by eating toast at dinner instead of bread, has set a fashion which is becoming the rule in society and at leading clubs. X We are sorry to state that Major-General H. H.

The largest and finest tennis court in the Barry -district is one which has been made by Mr J. -Jewel Williams at Tynewydd, Cadoxton. It measures 85ft. in length. r. The Rev Canon Allen, the genial rector of Barry, said at a meeting the other day that it got his monkey up when he tried to discover to whom the Parish Church was dedicated, whether to Nicolas, the patron saint of sailors and children, and commonly called Santa Claus," or to a Nicholas of Myria, or to David, the patrom saint -of Wales. A distinct novelty will be witnessed in the Barry district on Easter Monday, when a fancy dress football match will take place at the Castle Field "between teams of ladies v. gentlemen, under the auspices of the Barry Town A.F.C. Mr F. E. P. Haieh is the hon. secretary, and in his hands the arrangements will be well carried out. Many at Barry will read this with interest. There is not (says the Seamen's Chronicle), a better or more hard-working official in the Sailors' and Firemen's Union than our old and esteemed organiser, Mr J. Cathery. The Rev D. Henry Rees, of Broadstairs, Kent, the new pastor of the English Congregational ',Church, Barry, will commence his ministry on Sunday, the 8th prorlmo. At a meeting of the Llandaff Diocesan Society, held last Friday at Cardiff, under the presidency of the Lord Bishop of the diocese, a grant of £20 towards the building fund of the new church at Cogan was made, together with a grant of £10 towards the renovation fund of Penmark Church. In the comments upon the marvellous operations of the Prudential Assurance Company, pub- lished in the Barry Dock News last week, the writer omitted to refer to the good work done in the Barry district under the direction of the excellent local superintendent, Mr Attwood, of Rectory-road, Cadoxton. Pathetic scenes are sometimes witnessed on the platform at Barry Dock railway station. A young swain from Cogan having become smitten of the charms of a little fifteen-year-old lackin from Barry Dock, he regularly visits her once or twice a week, and the touching manner in which the parting is effected makes the passengers smack their lips with envy, while the guard turns on the green light" with paternal indignation. Noisy shoes are not pleasant. It is a very easy matter to remedy the creaking. Pour an ounce or so of linseed oil or melted lard into a shallow dish place the shoe in it, and allow the sole to become saturated. This absorption will not only render the shoe noiseless, but waterproof. The principal speakers at the forthcoming opening of the Barry and Cadoxton Conservative Club and Institute will probably be Lord Windsor, Mr J. M. Maclean (ex-M.P. for Oldham, and Con- servative candidate for Cardiff boroughs), Mr Robert Forrest, J.P., the high sheriff, and others. # The Barry Railway Company's bills before Parliament shall be introduced in the House of Commons this year.

Police-inspector Rees, Barry Dock, has not decided upon tendering his resignation, notwithstanding a rumour in circulation that he will probably do so almost immediately. A distribution of St. John ambulance certificates to the police classes will take place on Monday morning next, at Penarth Police-court, and on Tuesday evening at Barry Dock Police-court. m The good folk of Dinas Powis will be provided with a treat at the annual concert of the football club at the schoolroom next Wednesday evening. ♦ Smoker is a bit rough on rats," but he is a decided favourite with the members of the county police at Barry Dock.

BARRY AND NOTTINGHAM MODES OF WORKING COAL. IMPORTANT MINERS' CONFERENCE AT PONTYPRIDD. On Wednesday last a conference of miners representing the collieries in the two Rhondda Valleys and surrounding districts was held at Pontypridd in reference to the Barry and Notting- ham mode of working, Mr John Williams, Ynysybwl, presiding.-The Chairman wished it to be understood that it was not the intention of the conference to abolish the present list of prices or to make any alteration in them, but a general feeling existed that the workmen subjected to the Barry system should arrive at some understanding as to the mode of working and the remuneration for the same.—Mr John Williams (Clydach Vale) emphasised the statement that in convening the conference there was not the slightest intention of undermining the agents of the Rhondda Dis- trict.—The following resolution was adopted:- That this conference of representatives of collieries in the Rhondda Valleys and sur- rounding districts hereby expresses its opinion that it would be advisable to select a deputation to wait on Mr Abraham, M.P., the vice-chairman of the sliding-scale committee, as such, pointing out to him the urgency of taking immediate steps to deal with the Barry and Nottingham systems of coal working, nowadays so extensively adopted at the collieries of the above districts, and that he be kindly asked, without prejudice to any existing associations propagating the principles of Unionism, to convene an open conference of the whole of the South Wales and Monmouthshire workmen to deal as soon as possible with the aforesaid matter."—Mr Eben Davies (Clydach Vale) and Mr Thomas Evans (Naval Colliery) were appointed a deputation to wait on the hon. member.

WENVOE AND THE NIGGERS I jNITH BANJOES. MISS GERTRUDE JENNER APPLIES TO THE SANITARY AUTHORITY. Miss J°.nner appeared at the meeting of the Llandaff Rural Sanitary Authority in Cardiff on Wednesday afternoon last, to ask the assistance of members in stamping out what she considered a nuisance at Wenvoe. The peace of the latter village was, the lady went on to remark, frequently disturbed by" niggers armed with banjoes," who came from all parts of the world to stay at the local post-office. The latter place, she considered, should be placed under supervision, as although it contained only four bedrooms, as many as thirteen people had been staying there, and at the present time it contained no less than nine lodgers. Miss Jenner, having received an assurance that the matter should be looked into, retired.^
DEATH OF LAPY WYATT, THE DIMLANDS, 'COWBEI'MK It is with regret that we have to record the death, which occurred on Wednesday last, of Lady Wyatt, of The Dimlands, Cowhridge, in her eighty- second year. Of late years the deceased lady had been a great sufferer. She was the widow of the late Sir Higby Wyatt, of London, an architect to her Majesty the Queen. He retired from his profes- sion nearly twenty years ago, and lived until his death at The Dimlands. The poor of the neigh- bourhood and her ladyship's employes will lose in her a benefactress. Her remains will be interred at Usk.

DISESTABLISHMENT MEETING AT LLANCARFAN. THE CHAIRMAN CROSS-EXAMINED BY A YOUNG WORKING COLLIER. A public meeting in support of the disestablish- ment question was held on Monday evening last at the Board Schools, Llancarfan, and, notwith- standing the inclemency of the Weather, the room was crowded with an attentive and well-behaved audience. The chair was occupied by Alderman Edward John, of Cowbridge, who read a letter of apology for absence from the Rev Mr Matthews, of Swansea, the Liberationist lecturer, who was unable to be present in consequence of indisposition. The proceedings opened with a powerful address in support of disestablishment by the Chairman, who said Nonconformists had no desire whatever to show an unfriendly spirit towards the Church. All they sought was that the Church, by being disestablished, should be made an institution working harmoniously for the common good. Mr John also read an extract from a speech delivered by the late Dean of Rochester, strongly condemning the system of non-resident clergy which prevailed in many parishes throughout the country, and asked whether it was strange that the sheep should wander when the fold was unguarded and the pasture bare.-The Chairman was followed by the Rev Mr Lewis, Baptist minister, Llancarfan, who spoke at some length and with ability upon the burning question of the hour, dwelling, in the course of his remarks, upon the remarkable success of the voluntary principle in connection with Nonconformity in Wales. — The Rev W. E. Evans, C.M., Bonvilstone, also spoke, and said he much regretted the fact that a prominent dignitary of the Church, the Bishop of St. Asaph, had said in Liverpool the other day that the Welsh nation had not produced any man of note, and that the poetry of the Welsh people was trash. If this was so he (Mr Evans) would like to ask what became of the poetry of such men as Dyfed, Gwilym Hiraethog, and other prominent bards. (Loud applause.) The rev. speaker, dealing with the past history of the Church, said the Church of England in Wales had done comparatively nothing to support the Welsh language and Welsh nationality. (Hear, hear.) — Mr W. Griffiths (Wesleyan), Llancarfan, likewise addressed the meeting, and said while he would never speak or vote for a movement to deprive the Church of property which was legitimately hers he would say that one of the best results of Disestablishment would be that the Church would be free from the shackles of State Government, and be made a great influence for good.—In response to an invitation from the chairman for questions from the audience, Mr Davies, of Mountain Ash, a young man, who described himself as a working collier, ascended the platform, and amid, considerable interest on the part of the audience, endeavoured, by a long series of carefully conceived questions, to refute many of the arguments advanced by the speakers during the evening, and claimed that the voluntary principle was not more prominently displayed by any section of the Christian Church than it was by the Church of England, and last year alone, he said, the Church had been the means of raising no less than £ 5,401,982 8s lid by means of the voluntary contributions of her people. (Cheers.) He also claimed that a marked revival had taken place in Church life in the most populous districts in the county, notably Cardiff, Pontypridd, Aberdare, Mountain Ash, &c. At length, however, the Chairman described Mr Davies' questions as impertinent and irrelative, and declined to answer any more. A vote of thanks was then accorded the speakers, and a similar compliment having been bestowed upon the chairman, the meeting closed but not before Mr Davies, the young leader of the Church party present, had announced that a reply meeting would be held at the same place at an early date. J
'1' TRADES' UNIONISM AT BARRY DOCK. A. meeting was held on Tuesday evening last in connection with the Barry Dock Branch of the National Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and Joiners, at the Victoria Hotel, Barry Dock, for the purpose of hearing an address on organisation by Mr W. Tonley, a delegate from the parent society. John Lynham presided, and a resolution pledging those present to work towards the bringing of all non-members into fellowship was proposed by Mr T. S. Thomas (chairman of the Trades Council), seconded by Mr Charles Davies, and supported by Messrs John Rees, Wm. Harper &c., and carried with unanimity.—Subsequently the subjeet of the notice given to the master builders for an increase of a half-penny per hour in the wages of journeymen carpenters and joiners from the 1st of May was discussed, a difficulty having arisen owing to the announcement of the birth of a master builders' association which, apparently, is not yet in a positition to act on behalf of the masters generally.
THE RUMOURED RESIGNATION OF INSPECTOR REES, BARRY DOCK. A Barry Dock News representative waited on Wednesday last upon Inspector E. Rees, of the Central Police Station, Barry Dock, with reference to his rumoured intention to resign his connection with the county police force. Asked whether the announcement was correct, Inspector Rees said he was considering the matter, but he had not yet determined what course to adopt. Superintendent Giddings will, he added, be stationed at Barry Dock, and a sergeant will eventually be placed in charge of the central station, but probably the latter arrangement will not take place for some time. He (Inspector Rees) had experienced 29 years' service, and rather than be removed from the Barry district now he would resign. He hoped, however, to see the chief constable before the end of the week, and after that interview he would make up his mind what step to take.

CARDIFF PILOTS AND BARRY. A LETTER TO THE BARRY PILOTAGE BOARD. To the Editor of the" BARRY DOCK NEWS." SIR,-I have read with interest the letter in your issue of the 9th inst., signed by the representa- tives of the pilots on the above board. It is the opinion of many persons interested in the trade of Barry, myself included, that the Barry Pilotage Board have made a great mistake by giving Barry licences to Cardiff pilots. The Cardiff pilots are, with few exceptions, strong partisans of Cardiff in the competition for trade between Barry and Cardiff. The bulk of the Cardiff pilots who hold Barry licences are always ready and eager to sign and encourage the petitions to Parliament against any Bill for the advancement of Barry, which are persistently got up and engineered by the Bute interest in Cardiff. I am informed that even at the present moment there is to be observed the spectacle of a Cardiff pilot who holds a Barry licence travelling from port to port urging upon persons to sign a petition to Parliament against the Bill of the Barry Company, which is now before Parliament, and if I am correctly informed this Card if pilot is actually one of the pilots' representatives on the Barry Pilotage Board. This man may be, and doubtless is, work- ing in the interests of Cardiff pilots, but those who are Barry pilots alone, with no Cardiff license, have no interests in Cardiff. Their representative, while using the name and trade mark of Barry, is working dead against their interests, and. if I mistake not, dead against the wishes of Barry pilots pure and simple. It would be ridiculous to assume that a pilot is going to travel about the country on such a mission at his own expense, devoting his time and money to such a purpose, and the Barry people will not be slow to draw their own conclusions on this point. If the Cardiff pilots who hold Barry licenses disapprove of such treachery to Barry, let them stand up like men and say so. If they fail to do so I say (to use the mildest term) that they are no friends of Barry, and that the Barry Pilotage Board will, in my humble opinion, fail in its duty to Barry if it gives a Barry license in future to any Cardiff pilot or Cardiff apprentice.-I am, dear sir, yours truly, ONE DEEPLY INTERESTED IN BARRY." Cardiff, March 14,1894.
A GRIM VISITATION AT PENARTH. INHABITANTS ALARMED BY A GORILLA. During the past week or two Penarth has been visited by a strange animal which seems to have struck terror into the very hearts of the people, many of whom are afraid to go out of doors at night lest they should be waylaid and attacked by the monster visitant. A reporter called upon Mr David Morgan, a member of the Penarth Local Board, on Wednesday evening last, and that gentleman stated the animal, which he saw between nine and ten o'clock one night last week, represented in appearance a huge gorilla, and is generally seen prow- ling about in the neighbourhood of the Rogmora Woods after, dark and plays havoc with the produce of the gardens in the vicinity. The animal has also been seen wandering about Mr Lascelles Carr's residence, and the inhabitants of that part of Penarth, fearing disastrous conse- quences which may result from the creature continuing at large, have determined to set a watch, and endeavour to effect either the capture or the slaughter of the animal, which, it is sup- posed, has escaped from a travelling menagerie or vessel.
ORIGINAL POETRY. THE FISHERMAN'S GUIDING 13TAR. Black was the night, the waves were black, And blapk the gloom of heaven; Loud bl&w the fctorm, and fast the rack By the swift winds was driven. 'Twaa tKen a veil came o'r the isle Of green and level lea, Which lies full many a heaving mile Out in the western sea. A veil that round its every bay. With deepening darkness sped, And Spread where lone and far away One boat the tempest fled. Her rowers' strength was well nigh spent, Nor yet their port they knew, For not a star its lustre lent Unto the toiling crew. And not a headland they descried, Nor rock nor guiding light, While round them sank the darkness wide, Of black and rayless night. Out then and spoke a mariner, A hardy man was he, Who'd faced full many a wintry year The storms upon the sea. My trust is yet, in Him Who sent About my mates and me. This strong and fearful element- This gloom in which we be." My trust is yet in Him," he said, Who knows to guide our way, We have not from His mercy strayed Though on these waters grey." Be firm and strong, don't fear nor cow, Though wind and waves o'erwhelm We'll breathe our prayers o'er the bow, And put faith upon the helm." He who holds the wind and waves In the hollow of His hand Can save us from deep ocean graves, And send us save to land. I He walked the sea at Galilee When His disciples' boat did reel, And calmed the waves as smooth as glass As He said-" Peace, be still This storm as yet can't be compared, To Jonah's storm of old, When the mariner told him to arise, And call upon his God Although his storm throughout was wild, And awful to be seen It could not be compared to that, Which fired his soul within. Besides, a monster round the ship, With open mouth and jaws Was yawning for to swaUow him, Alive without a pause Thus said from out the darkness broke, A fair and starlike gleam, The word of hope was scarcely spoke, Ere rose its brightening beam. And straight the mariners' strength returned, The rowers' hearts were cheered Strong with hope's flame again they burned, When e'er yon star appeared. For well their pilot knew who raised Its far-flung beacon-light He knew near whose home it blazed To cheer the howling night. He knew whose care had placed it there, Amid the tempest wild, The whilst she breathed her simple prayer— His poor and lonely child. 'Twas she who guarded well that flame From the fierce wind and spray, Alone, until her father came, And kissed her tears away. Thus, on the waters wild, I ween, On which life's barque is driven II The Book of God has ever been The beacon-light of Heaven Cardiff. MACMOUNTAIN,
