HOPE OF BARRY LODGE OF ROYAL HEARTS OF OAK. AxxrAL DIXXER AT THE BARRY HOTEL. The annual dinner in connection with the Hope of Barry Lodge. Royal Hearts of Oak Yearly Dividing Friendly Society was held on Saturday evening last at the Barry Hotel, when Dr Xeale, J.P.. the surgeon of the lodge, presided over a respectable and well-ordered company numbering about a hundred members and friends. The chairman was supported at the cross table by Major-General Lee. J.P. (who presided during the greater portion of the evening. Dr Neale being called away). Mr D. T. Alexander, Dr Kelly. Dr King. Mr W. Peterson, Mr J. Watts. Mr E. King (Clifton-street). Mr Robert Griffiths (secretary of the dinner committee), and amongst those present were Messrs F. Walls. LI. Thomas, C. Gilbert. J. Wade. Talhot. T. Kathrens (X.G. of the Cadoxton Lodsre). Clarke, T. Wilson. Mueford, P.C. Mugford, W. T. Xicholls. L. John, Rees Williams. J. Botting, F. Clarke. D. Pugh, kc. The room had been very tastefully decorated for the occasion by Mr King with light bunting. Chinese lanterns, streamers, flowers, plants, suitable mottoes, &c., lending a most pleasing effect to the interior. Mr J. A. Davies, the respected host, also provided a capital dinner. which was thoroughly enjoyed by the company, after which an appropriate toast list. interspersed with songs. &c.. was gone through. The Chairman having submitted the Royal toast, it was received with enthusiastic loyalty.—After a song by Mr J. Evans, the toast of the evening was proposed by General Lee. who. in the course of an interesting address, said gatherings of this kind brought all cla sses of society together, so that they might know each other more intimately and practically than could be possible otherwise. He believed the more society knew each other the more they would realise that all were actuated by the same aim, that of the greatest good for the greatest number. (Cheers.) The esteemed General then spoke of the advantages of the friendly society system, and deprecated the idea of granting State aid as an old age pension, believing, he said, that English- men might be rplied upon to look to themselves to help themselves. He wished the Hope of Barry Lodsrs continued success. (Applause.)- Mr T. Wilson. secretary of the lodge, in responding. said the total income last year amounted to £ 247 14s 9jd, aud the expenditure. €216 lis Id. the balance in hand at the end of 18.93 being JE60 17s Oid. In connection with the sick fund, the expenditure amounted to £ 1.">9 odd. leaving the total value of the lodge at the end of 1893 at de92 Os 9d. Since the establish- ment of the lodge in 1S89. the total amount of ex- penditure was £ 593 18s 5d, of which £244 8s 4d was spent in sick pay alone. The prospects for the present year were hopeful, the balance in hand upon this year's receipts being 7C21 Is 7d, and the total strength of the lodge at present was 169 members. (Cheers.)—Mr J. Hicks gave a song, and Mr Mugford submitted the toast of the trade of the district, with which was coupled the name of Mr D. T. Alexander, who replied with a warm speech, during which he said the Barry district last year had fared as well in matters of trade as any commercial community in the whole country. (Hear. hear.) Having referred to the enterprising spirit which animated the directors of the Barry Dock and Railways Company, Mr Alexander said if those gentlemen carried out all they had pro- jected Barry would undoubtedly developer in a few years into one of the largest ports in the country. (Cheers.) It behoved, therefore, those who were responsible for the carrying out of local administration and the government of the town to maintain the efficiency of the past. and it was the daty of the ratepayers to place on that body the best business men that could be found in their midst to administer their local affairs. and do th-ir wtmost to promote the interests of the community a.nd the place. (Applause).-Song (encored), Mr B. Robins.—At this stage, letters i.f apology for absence were read from Messrs R. Evans, D. Roberts. F. M. Harris, the Rev Canon Allen, E. W. Waite, and S. S. Bedingfield, 5cc.—Mr F. Walls proposed, in graceful terms, the toast of 4. The Visitors," and spoke of Mr D. T. Alexander as member-elect ot the west ward of the Barry district on the Local Board, although he must meanwhile issue a manifesto acceptable to the labour party. (Laughter.) The speaker, in speaking in complimentary terms of each of the visitors, referred to the fidelity with which Mr W. Paterson fulfilled his obligations to the working-classes and the ratepayers on the principal local public body. He also said Dr King stood high, as gentleman and profes- sional man. in the estimation of those present, and especially amongst the members of the Hope of Barry Lodge of Hearts of Oak. Dr Kelly, he added, had also greatly distinguished himself as ceaductor of the ladies and gentlemen's ambu- lance classes in the district. (Cheers.)—Dr Kelly was the first to respond, and in a felicitous speech, said in the event of Mr Alexander being elected on the Local Board, he would be a decided acquisition to the public men of the district. (Applause.)— Mr W. Paterson also responded, and paid a high tribute to the public and private worth of General Lee. (Cheers.)—Mr Gilbert contributed a song.— Mr Mogford proposed a vote of thanks to Mr C. King for his kindness in providing the tasteful decorations of the room.—Mr F. Clarke seconded the compliment, which was cheerfully accorded, and Mr King neatly acknowledged.—Mr Roger Jenkins was the next singer, and he was encored.— Mr W. T. Nicholls then gave the toast of The Chairman (General Lee), and spoke of the kind readiness with which the gallant gentleman had taken the place of Dr Neale upon being unexpectedly called away upon professional duties on that occasion. The toast was received with 1 liearty enthusiasm and musical honours. General Lee, in replying, expressed the pleasure he felt at the good greeting extended to him by the company and spoke a word of praise of Mr King upon the taste displayed in the admirable class of decora- ) tionj which graced the room. (Cheers.)—Song, Mr J. Evan? (encored).—Mr F. Clarke submitted "The Press," and Mr J. R. Llewellyn (Barry 1 Dock News), in response, referred to the fact that «nder the new Local Government Act an unpre- cedented opportunity would be afforded the work- iag classes of securing for themselves direct repre- santation upon the new district and parish councils. (Cheers.)-Song. Mr J. Chivers, who was also encored.—Duet, Messrs J. Evans and B. Robins.—Mr F. Clarke submitted the toast of the Host and Hostess and Mr Mogford urged the a duty on the part of all young men to join a j friendly society, and remarked that in most instances where charitable collections were made Ir the recipients were persons who had not availed c themselves of the advantages offered by friendly aocieties.-Song, Mr John Evans.-Other toasts followed; and it should be added that Mr Ivor Thomas was an efficient and obliging accompanist during the evening..

BARRY DISTRICT CHAMBER OF TRADE. PUBLIC OFFICES AXD COUNTY COURT FOR THE DISTRICT. PROPOSED VISIT OF THE GLAMORGAN AGRICULTURAL SHOW. HOLIDAY CHANNEL TRIPS FROM BARRY. The monthly meeting of the members of the Barry District Chamber of Trade was held on Thursday evening. the 15th instant, at Harry's Restaurant, Barry Dock. the president. Mr D. T. Alexander, in the chair, and amongst those present were Captain H. Murrell, Messrs E. S. Johnson, H. C. Griffiin (senr.), G. Garnett, B. T. Pomerov, .T. L. Davies, E. Gould, B. Lewis. T. P. Thomas. L. Y. Owen, R. Treharne Rees (secretary), J. R. Llewellyn. H. Lindsay. J. E. Jones, J. Phillips. E. Hughes, H. C. Grifnn (junr.), J. E. Levers, &:c. PROPOSED PUBLIC OFFICES FOR BARRY. In accordance with notice given at the previous meeting, Mr E. S. Johnson moved that the chamber advocate the establishment of public offices for the district on the land taken over at the ga3 works with as little expenditure as possible. In the course of his remarks, Mr Johnson said he had re- ferred to this question at the previous meeting from one or two standpoints. One was that the new offices were urgently needed, because from experience he had found it very inconvenient and a waste of time in obtaining the assistance of the officials at any time through not being housed in one block of buildings, and being out of the centre of the district. (Hear, hear.) Now that the scheme was being launched, they should look at it also was being launched, they should look at it also from an economical point of view. He did nut support a seltish view for the whole of the offices I to be established at the Birry end. If he did, he would urge that the ratable value of the Barry- Dock and Barry portions was the most important. In launching this scheme they were incurring very heavy expense, and that was a thing he (Mr Johnson) was endeavouring to urge upon the chamber to disapprove of. (Hear, hear.) The question to him was the necessity of buildings. It would, he believed, be accepted that new offices to house all the public officials, including those con- nected with the gas and water works, were required. It had been urged that all the land in connection with the gas works would be required for future extension. That might be so, but the scheme he (the speaker) held was not a large one. If they urged the members of the Local Board to adopt a scheme of simply enlarging the present gas offices instead of going to an expenditure of £5,000 or £10,000, which could easily be spent on this class of building, he considered it would prove more satisfactory. The offices of the Gas Company seemed to be fully occupied at present. In a short time it would, no doubt, be necessary to increase the plant, and they would then have to increase the officials. That being so it would also be necessary to provide rooms for their accommodation, and, therefore, from that standpoint alone, he urged that the present buildings could be enlarged at an expendi- ture of certainly not more that sE 2,000 at the present time, and that amount would provide accommodation for the whole of the officials. At the present time. rates amounted to Is 6d in the Z, and he was afraid that. with the necessary ex- penditure that the members of the board would see it their duty to incur, to say nothing of the outside expenditure, instead of Is 6d in the jS, the rates would be considerably increased, and he (Mr Johnson) maintained the district was not in a position to have the rates augmented by even one penny in the j6. He could give good reasons for that, but he did not wish to unnecessarily enlarge upon it. One reason, however, why he would oppose a large scheme was because that for some years he had no doubt they could go on in the present way. (Hear, hear.) In future years some of them would think they should endeavour to obtain incorporation, &c., and it was only reason- able for the people at that time to bear their portion of the great expenditure necessary. Another objection was that the proposed site near Holton-road Board Schools was quite out of the centre, and by examining the map they would agree that the gas works was in the centre, or very near it. One of the objections raised was that the greater portion of the population was on the Barry Dock side of the gas works. That might be the case at the present time, but there was a growing tendency for the whole district to unite at no distant period. The next point he would put forward was that the Board had already several large contracts in hand. There was the Coldknap sewerage scheme, for instance. He had nothing to say against these matters, but it should be understood that a large sum of money was re- quired to carry out these large works, and the ratepayers of the district would have to provide money in connection with the capital and interest. There were other schemes in formation, one of the latest being a new road to the cemetery. All these things were needed, but the expense in con- nection with them should be carefully considered. The largest scheme was the purchase of the gas and water works. It had been put forth that these would pay for themselves in the end. but he (Mr Johnson) believed they would find that the rate- payers would have to provide a certain sum of money every year for these purposes, and. seeing these points, they would agree that the district could not afford to pay for an extended scheme of this class. He urged that the land that would be required could not be used for anything in connec- tion with the gas and water works, with the exception of storage rooms, or something of that kind. Then, why not utilise the corner piece of land, at a cost of not more than je2,000, and at the same time look out for a sight that might be available for future years (Hear, hear.) The President remarked that Mr Johnson had not discussed the question of site as much as he should. Mr Johnson said he had referred to the advisa- bility of erecting the new offices on the ground of the gas works, and he had also referred to the matter of expenditure. The President said he only called Mr Johnson's attention to the limits of the motion. Mr Johnson With regard to the question of site. I think I have made it fairly clear that I advocate the advisability of approaching the Local Board to adopt this site instead of going into much more expense. At the end of the meeting I will give notice to discuss the matter from the other standpoint. Mr E. Hughes said he did not think the Board had decided which site they would adopt yet. The President said he should not like this meeting to influence the sub-committee appointed by the Local Board to go into the matter, as they had not yet come to any conclusion. When the decision had been arrived at, Mr Johnson could give notice of motion, and the chamber could then take up the matter fully and give their opinion. Mr Johnson said he had no objection whatever to allow the matter to stand over. but the reason why he brought it forward was because the members of the Local Board seemed to be divided, very nearly equally divided, on this question, and he thought if an expression of feeling from the chamber had been given it might assist the Board, not, however, with the intention of dictating to them by any means. He would, therefore, with- draw his motion for the present. The President reminded the members that the District Councils Election would take place in November next, and said he had no doubt the Local Board would not consider the question finally until ofter that election. He (Mr Alexander) also assumed that the pros and cons. of this question would not only be discussed by the chamber but also by the outside public, and that the candidates for the election would be canvassed on the matter. Mr B. Lewis, after expressing regret at his absence during Mr Johnson's remarks, said he was of opinion that every inch of land connected with ihe gas works would be required within the next :en years. One of the first things to be done, after paying the cost of purchase, was to obtain another gasholder, for the district was not safe with only I one, and other works could be erected thereat for the supply of different products from which to ob- tain additional revenue. Besides, the site was not central. Mr Meggitt introduced his motion at the I board for the offices to be on the gas works lands, and pressed it for some time, but he eventually withdrew it. It was also said that the place was not healthy. The centre of the district, in his opinion, was near the board schools at Holton- road. Mr Johnson At present. Mr Lewis said the district could not extend past the railway on the one hand, but there was plenty of room on the other. In regard to the offices being in Court-road, it was said that was his pet scheme." (Laughter.) There, the Board had seven acres of land at a cheap rate, and it was central. They could obtain a splendid frontage on the Court-road, and as it was leased why spend a } large sum of money in purchasing another site Therefore, he considered the most economical course would be to build the offices on the land in Court-road, for in ten years it would undoubtedly be the centre of the district. Mr Gould, referring to the purchase of the gas works, said with regard to the expense the rate- payers were told they would have an opportunity in discussing it, but they had been sold, and members of the Local Board themselves thought an exorbitant price was being paid for the under- takings. The ratepayers did not wish to he saddled with any extra expense, rie agreed with the chairman as to waiting till the decision of the sub-committee of the Local Board had become known with regard to the offices, and he hoped the matter would come up again at tin chamber before any money was spent. In connection with Mr Lewis' argument he (Mr Gould) thought it would be an extreme mixture to have the slaughter-house and public offices together. (Hear, hear.) The question was then deferred. THE INVITATION TO THE GLAMORGAN' AGRICUL- lTRAL SOCIETY TO VISIT BARRY. The President, dealing with the matter of send- ing an invitation to the Glamorgan Agricultural Society to hold their show of 1895 in the Barry district, said it would be advisable to ascertain definitely, in the event of the show being held in this district, what l:md was available. The chamber, so far. had been proceeding on the as- sumption that there were two sites, namely, on Cadoxton Moors and at Cold Knap. He was afraid nothing had been done to ascertain if either of these sites could be had, and he should like that evening to obtain from the meeting whether they should deal with the matter from a public point of view, or whether they thought it desirable to make inquiries as to a site. If they thought either of the places named could be secured they could call a public meeting to consider the matter at an early date. Mr Lewis said since the last meeting he had spoken to several gentlemen on this question, and from what he could gather, he did not think there could be the least difficulty in securing what, in his opinion, was the most suitable site in the district, namely, Cadoxton Moors, where sports had been held for two or three years. It was within easy distance of the railway station, and in every way a most convenint spot.- Mr Johnson thought it desirable for the committee to try to arrange for one or two other sites for the consideration of the society, but, on the other hand, he thought the secretary would consider, other matters being equal, that the Barry end of the district would be preferable from one or two points for instance, the beach, park, &c., would be a great consideration to many people.—The President said the chamber need not go into the matter of site to any extent, as the society would decide that. and tho public meeting to be held would strengthen the hands of the chamber. In a matter of this character, it would be desirable that the public bodies in the district should take an interest in the affair. and thus give satisfaction allround. (Hear, hear.)—Mr Hughes thought the chamber should approach the Local Board, and moved that a committee from the chamber wait on the Local Board, asking their co-operation in the convening of a public meeting for the purpose of sending an invitation to the Glamorgan Agricultural Society to hold their annual show for 1895 in the Barry district.—Mr H. C. Griffin, senr., seconded, and suggested that the President, Captain Hamilton Murrell, and Mr Hughes form the committee.—Captain Murrell said he was not inclined to accept the honour for the reason that they should not approach the Local Board before the chamber knew something more definite in the matter. — The President said they would un- doubtedly have competition, as Penarth desired that the show be held there, but he (Mr Alexander) thought the society was in favour of Barry. (Hear, hear.) Barry had two members on the committee of the society, and he believed the in- fluence of these gentlemen would be the means of securing the holding of the show at Barry. A public meeting was now required to be held, because the society would want to know whether, from a public point of view, they were likely to be supported. The district should be unanimous in the matter, and give an expression that would leave no doubt whatever on the minds of the members of the society that if they came to Barry they would be welcomed to the same extent as had been the case during the visits of other bodies to the district. (Cheers.)—Mr Murrell having express his willingness to act on the committee, the motion was carried unanimously. THE NEED OF A COUNTY COURT IN THE DISTRICT. The above matter was again brought forward for consideration. Mr B. Lewis said he was in full sympathy with the movement, as he thought it would be a great saving of time and expense if a county court were established at Barry. The Local Board had already moved in the matter, having authorised the clerk to write to the Lord Chancellor asking for the concession.-The President proposed that as the Local Board had moved in the matter, the chamber write to that body supporting the action taken by them.—Mr G. Garnett seconded.- Mr J. R. Llewellyn, supporting, said he thought the aggressive and unfriendly attitude of Cardiff in this and other important matters should prove the strongest possible incentive to the chamber to assist the Barry district in forming for itself an independent existence. (Hear, hear.) Too long had Cardiff bled the resources of Barry, and it was full time for Barry in return to assert a spirit of independence in view of the grossly mean and selfish position taken up by Cardiff with regard to the progress of Barry. (Hear, hear.) — The Chairman remarked he endorsed everything that Mr Llewellyn had said. At Cardiff there had been a continued exhibition of spleen actuated by selfish motives, and it was quite time for the i present condition of things to be changed. The proposition was then carried. THE DESIRABILITY OF PERIODICAL ASSESSMENT COMMITTEE MEETINGS AT BARRY. With regard to the consideration of the desira- bility of holding periodical meetings of the Cardiff Union Assessment Committee at Barry, Mr Alexander said he did not know whether the committee had the power to hold meetings outside their offices at Cardiff.-Mr Griffin had introduced this matter, and he considered it was a great in- convenience to attend meetings of the assessment committee at Cardiff. He had known the best part of two days being taken up in attending, and it was time, he thought, the convenience of the district was considered. It was not an unusual thing for an assessment committee to hold meetings at different places. The Pontypool Assessment Committee held meetings at Usk, which was eight miles distant, four times a year there- fore, he thought Cardiff could do the same, and an assessment committee might be held at Barry periodically.—Mr Hughes How are you going to do it ?—The President said he did not think at first it could be done, but Mr Griffin had thrown some light on the question, and he (Mr Alexander) would say that if the Cardiff assess- ment committee would not go so far as to hold sittings at Barry they might appoint special days for considering the appeals from Barry, so that people might not be inconvenienced more than necessary. He promised to do all he could to alter the condition of things, and said he would ascertain from the clerk of the Cardiff Union their power in the matter, and then the matter could be considered again by the chamber.—Mr B. Lewis thought that, with the working of the Parish Councils Act, Barry could probably establish a Union for itself. Meanwhile ¡ he hoped Mr Alexander would endeavour to bring about a better arrangement for the district. Mr Alexander being obliged to leave at this stage, Mr H. C. Grifnn occupied the chair for the remainder of the meeting. AN INCONVENIENT CROSSING AT BARRY DOCK. Mr J. R. Llewellyn proposed that a representa- tion be forwarded by the chamber to the authori- ties of the Barry Railway Company asking them to erect a footbridge near the siding opposite Andrew's Coffee Tavern, Barry Dock, for the convenience of the general public. Mr Llewellyn referred to the inconvenience and waste of time experienced by seamen, workers at the dock, tradesmen, and others, through having to wait at the gates till mineral trains passed, especially in the morning and at night, and there were many escapes by men passing over in front of trains.— Mr Harold Lindsay seconded, and Mr Griffin and Mr Pomeroy supported, and the motion was agreed to unanimously. PROPOSED TELEGRAPHIC FACILITIES AT BARRY DOCK. Telegraphic facilities being urgently needed in the vicinity of Holton-road, the chamber has already petitioned the Postmaster-General to establish a receiving office for telegrams at the post-office at the lower end of Holton-road, but the same could not be granted now, and the chamber brought up the matter of establishing these facilities at Pyke- street post-office. — Mr Lewis said he felt the arrangements required at the Pyke-street post- office would be granted, as it was not too near the head oflice at Barry Dock. He, therefore, proposed a resolution in favour of petitioning the Postmaster- General for the establishment of facilities in the direction indicated.—Mr B. T. Pomeroy seconded the resolution, and said he had no doubt, although the authorities declined to grant a receiving office for telegrams in connection with the Holton road establishment, they would be persuaded to do so at the Pyke-strcet post office.-After a remark or two by members present, the resolution was unani- mously agreed to. HOLIDAY CHANNEL TRIPS FOR BARRY. Mr E. S. Johnson asked permission to bring' forward a matter of some importance to the district now that the summer months were approaching. He said that during previous seasons the people of Barry had not been pro- perly catered for in the matter of holiday channel trips. Pleasure boats had called at Barry, but so irregularly, and at such short notice, that the public had not an opportunity of patronising them. He would, therefore, move that the chamber approach the proprietors of these boats, and ask them to organise special trips from Barry during the coming season.—Mr Pomeroy, in seconding the resolution, remarked there was a great deal of truth in what Mr Johnson had said. On one occa- sion he (the speaker) intended accompanying one of these trips, but found when he reached the dock the boat had left, being almost full of Cardiff people when she arrived at Barry. — Captain Murrell said that the "Earl of Duuraven" had made several trips from Barry last year, but the opportunities had not been properly patronised.- Mr Johnson The fault in most cases lies at the door of the proprietors of these boats in not giving proper notice to the public.—Mr H. C. Griffin, jun., in supporting the motion, expressed concurrence with the remarks of Mr Johnson and Mr Pomeroy, and the resolution on being put to the meeting was adopted. ° U.. I
HOUSEBREAKING AT BARRY A BARRY ENGINE DRIVER IN CUSTODY. CLEVER CAPTURE BY A POLICE OFFICER At Penarth Police Court on Monday last (before Mr V. Trayes and Mr John Duncan) William Henry Lewis, engine driver on the Barry Railway, was charged with burglariously entering the residence of Edward Jenkins, 22, Windsor-road, Barry, and stealing therefrom a gold watch and chain, value £ 8.—Ann Jenkins. wife of the prosecutor, said on the previous day she left her house about 6.30 p.m. to go to chapel, her husband having previously left. When she afterwards got home she found the house had been broken into. Outside her bedroom door was a large iron bar, with which the door had been broken open. A drawer in the room had also been opened, and her gold watch and chain and about £ 13 in gold taken therefrom. The police officer afterwards found the money on the floor. Defendant had lodged with her years before.—Sergeant David Weeks, Barry, deposed that he was called to the house, and after examining it went into the garden, where he found the impression of a boot in the garden soil. There were marks from seven rows of nails, and a tip at the toe, which, it was seeD after the arrest, corresponded with Lewis' right boot. He made inquiries, and went to the Barry Station and called defendant off the engine he was driving, and upon searching the watch and chain were found in the back of his vest. At this stage the evidence was adjourned till the following Thursday at Barry Dock Police Court, defendant stating he had nothing to say.
BARRY AND CADOXTON HEALTH COMMITTEE. A meeting of the Health Committee of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board was held on Friday evening last, at Cadoxton, present-Dr O'Donnell (chairman), Messrs J. Jewel Williams, W. Thomas I (Barry), W. Thomas (The Hayes), J. A. Hughes (clerk), J. C. Pardoe (surveyor), Dr Neale (medical I officer), and S. B. Summerfield (assistant inspector of nuisances).—It was decided, on the motion of Dr O'Donnell, to rent the two fields near the Colcot, Cadoxton, for hospital purposes from the Wenvoe Castle estate, which were about nine acres in extent.-The inspector of nuisances reported that the number of houses visited during the month was 172 defects and nuisances, 25 houses without water, 41. Number of nuisances inspected, 52 notices served, 52 complied with, 22.-The scavenging of the district continued satisfactory. The various cowsheds, dairies, and milkshops had been inspected and found correct. The bakehouses in the district had also been visited and found clean, also the shops kept for the sale of butchers' meat, poultry, game, fish, fruit, etc. The number of infected houses in the district was seven extra visits paid to same, 32. One house was disinfected during the month. There had been 97 vessels inspected on arrival at Barry Dock, of which three were found defective or dirty, and notices to abate the same were served.
