FORTHCOMING LABOUR DE- MONSTRATION AT BARRY. SEVERAL PROMINENT MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT TO BE INVITED. At the meeting of the Barry Trades and Labour Council, held on Friday evening last, Mr F. Walls (the vice-president) moved that a monster labour meeting be held in the Barry district during the second week in May, and that labour members of Parliament and others be asked to attend the same. -The President (Mr T. S. Thomas) seconded, and said he felt very strongly in favour of the pro- posal.—Mr W. W. Fookes heartily supported the motion, and said he hoped a most successful gathering may be the result, so that the working- men generally of the district may be educated in the principles of trade unionism.-The President remarked that the second week in May would be a most important period for the carpenters and joiners of the district, for the period of notice would then have expired for an advance in wages, although he did not anticipate opposition on the part of the employers.—Other members supported, and the resolution was carried unanimously, the gentlemen to be invited including Messrs Keir Hardie, M.P., John Barns, M.P., J. H. Wilson, M P.. A. J. Willliams, M.P., Tom Mann, J. Harford (Railway Servants Society), W. Abraham, M.P. (Mabon), W. C. Tunley, F. Fox, G. S. Thomas, A. G. Slater, J.P.

ASSAULTS ON THE POLICE AT BARRY. SEVERAL CASES TRIED AT PENARTH. Thomas Mack was charged on Monday last— before Major Thornley and Colonel Guthrie-at Penarth Police-court with being drunk and assaulting Police-constable Thomas Thorburn (384) at Cadoxton on Easter Monday evening. The constable said the accused was very drunk and riotous, and in attempting to take him to the police station defendant struck and kicked him several times.—Fined 20s and costs, or 14 days' hard labour. THEY WERE MET BY "POLICEMEN IN DISGUISE." William Cameron and Charles Baker were charged with being drunk and riotous in Weston- road, Barry Dock, on the previous Tuesday night. P.C.'s William Smith and W. Williams gave evidence that they were in plain clothes in Weston- road on Tuesday night, when they saw Cameron who was behaving like a madman and very drunk, challenging anyone in the district to fight. He ordered him off, when defendant became very abusive, and kicked Constable Smith in the stomach and leg repeatedly, and tore his uniform trousers. Baker then came to Cameron's assist- ance, and struck Williams with his fist, Cameron stating he would do for any constable in the place. -The first-named was fined 92 5s 6d, or 21 days, and Baker was fined 25s and costs, or 21 days. Enoch Williams, a rigger, of 7, Spencer-street, Barry Dock, was brought up in custody charged with assaulting P.C. Thomas Harris on Sunday afternoon last. Constables Rarris and W. Williams stated they raided a shebeen at prisoner's house on the previous day, and were in the act of carrying off a cask of beer when he struck Harris in the mouth and seized him by the throat.—Fined 10s and eosts, or fourteen days' hard labour.
REVIEW OF .PUBLICATIONS. FOOTBALL THE RUGBY UNION GAME." Part 7 of Football: The Rugby Union Game, illustrated, edited by the Rev F. Marshall, con- tinues to be issued by Messrs Casaell and Company, Limited, La Belle Sanvage, London, E.C., at the price of sixpence. Part seven describes Rugby football at Oxford and Cambridge, as well as metropolitan-football. The series arc thoroughly entertaining in everything dealt with. and the reader's interest is promptly aroused in perusal. Dealing with the commencement of the Rugby game at Cambridge, the writer states that In 1861 a few old Rugby boys started their favourite game at Cambridge, and were looked upon as little less than mad qxJn by the majority of Can tabs of that day. The great athletic revival was then beginning to spread over the kingdom, and in spite of the ridicule bestowal on i;, at Cambridge, football made considerable headway and the players increased." In the article oa Metropolitan Football." the contributor gives it as his (.pinion that the of the failure of conuty i'aattiall in. the. metr-ipoUs is not difficult to ritaguo.ee. It is. he says," simply that Middlesex, Kent, and Murray aiv }i*>t from a. football point of view coiliities bur, that the three form an aggregate Loader, th.- three counties having become merged in the metropolis." Part seven is complete with fuil-msred excellent photographs of different teams connected \v i t'n the articles, together with scenes from tlv game and portraits of different players. Footb dl may be obtained of Messrs Outsell and Company, or per order of any bookseller. wonK," The April number of the illustrated journal for mechanics, tV(I" iEt before the public, and contains detailed instructions in a large variety of useful subjects. How to make a blacksmith's apron, coal gas, camera stand, electric stand, hanging cabinet, to improve plain chimney pieces, to make the harmonograph pattern for short leg, sheep troughs, ventriloquial dolls, and Madeira open- work baskets are some of the branches of mechanical art dealt with. Lessons are also given in wood-turning and in mounting rock sections, together with notes on the work world and a second-year's course in wood-work. No one who has a taste for mechanism of any kind should be without Cassell and Company's deservedly popular monthly edition of Work, price sixpence, obtain- able of all booksellers and stationers.

J. Dimond, B.T., proved the case.—For the defence, Mr Jones-Lloyd contended the consent of the captain had been obtained.-Bllckley was fined 40s and costs, and the two others 20s each and costs, in default 14 days' hard labour.

BARRY PARISH EASTER VESTRY. THE OWNERSHIP OF THE PARISH HALL. The annual vestry meeting for the parish of Barry was held at the Church Hall on Thursday evening, the 29th ultimo, when the Rev Canon Allen. M.A., rector, presided, and there was a good attendance. Amongst those present were Rev J. Du Heaume, Mr J. Lowdon, J P., Mr R. S. Robin- son, Mr E. S. Johnson, Captain Whall. Messrs A. Jackson (solicitor). W. H. Miller, W. Waddell, F. Small, J. Johnson. C. J. Vaughan, fe. J. George. E. F. Blackmore (assistant overseer). M. Nicholas, &c. Mr Blackmore reported it would be necessary to appoint an auditor representing Barry parish for the Burial Board, because such official had not been elected at the last vestry meeting owing to a mis-apprehension.—Several persons were suggested to fill the vacancy, but they declined, Mr A. Jack- son at length accepting the office.-The Rector stated he would appoint Mr R. S. Robinson as his warden. (Hear, hear.)—Two names were put for- ward as parishioners' warden, namely. Mr E. Si. Johnson, The Parade, and Mr F. Lewis, Vale-street. The voting was by ballot, the former gentleman being elected by a majority of three.—Mr Waddell a,ked for the accounts of the Church.—Canon Allen sail that during the year they had been able to meet several important parish expenses, and also contribute towards some very good objects. The offertories showed a sum of J678 78 2 £ d, the expenditure amounting to 969 Is 8d, leaving a balance in hand of A 9 5s 6!d. The Easter Sunday offerings last year amounted to £6 6s Oid. which was given to the lunds of the Parish Hall. In aid of the Pontypridd disaster relief fund, £2 5s 5d was contributed, and to the Cardiff Infirmary, f.1 13s qd; to the Church of England 2 Temperance Society, £1 7s; and to the S.P.G., £11586d. The sum handed over for the building fund of the Parish Hall was £ 10, and a contribu- tion of d62 3s 3d was given for poor and sick persons in the parish.—Mr Waddell said he was gratified to see an increase in the offertories and a balance on the right side, and he proposed a hearty vote of thanks to the churchwardens for the manner in which they had carried out their duties during the past year.—Mr J. Williams seconded, and the vote was accorded unanimously.-The following were appointed sidesmen :—Messrs R. J. George, W. Herbert, A. Phillips, F. Lewis, Hawkins (Barry Cottage), and D. Wilson.—On the motion of Mr Johnson, seconded by Mr J. Williams, Mr W. J. Greig was elected lay-elector to represent Barry pariah at the diocesan conference at Llandaff. THE TAKING OVER BY THE CHURCH OF THE PARISH HALL. Captain Whall stated be had obtained advice with regard to the Parish Hall and its ownership, and he had gathered that unless the hall was taken over by the church the Parish Council, which would come into force in November next; could do so. The building at present was not under the church, but in the hands of trustees, and that being so, either the church should take charge of it, or the Parish Council would. There was a debt remaining of about AIOO, and he (Captain Whall) did not intend to continue his responsibility in the matter after November, because he saw no signs of any action being taken. -Mr Robinson considered something would be done before November, for, now that the matter had been ventilated, he thought the churchwardens and sidesmen could take the question into con- sideration.—The Chairman said he could not see any just grounds for the Parish Council taking the hall over.—Mr Johnson said the building was erected as a Sunday school, and not as a parish hall, and merely out of courtesy parish meetings were allowed to be held therein.—Captain Whall remarked it could not be a Sunday school unless the church took it over.—Mr Johnson If the trustees give up their responsibility, there are other gentlemen who would fill their places.-The Chairman thanked Captain Wball for bringing the matter forward, and the discussion dropped, it being understood that the position would be con- sidered by the church authorities.
ALLEGED GROSS CRUELTY TO A DOG AT EASTBROOK. A CARDIFF YOUTH CHARGED WITH KNOCKING THE ANIMAL'S EYE OUT. MINNIE ST. CLAIR AN INTERESTING PROSECUTRIX. Before the Penarth magistrates (Col. Guthrie and Major Thornley) on Monday last, a young man named Frederick Lucas, in the employ of the Capper tea merchants, Cardiff, was charged with cruelty to a. dog, belonging to Minnie St. Clair, 5, Spring-bank, Eastbrook, Dinas Powis. on the 5th ultimo. The prosecution was conducted by Mr R. Warr, Cardiff, inspector to the R.S.P.C.Aiifcand the prosecutrix stated that on the 5th of March defendant came to her house seeking orders, when her dog, a little fox terrier, eleven months old. snarled at him. The dog was quite innocent, and would not bite. Defendant drove the dog away, and then hissed the animal. Lucas picked up two stones, and the second stone knocked the dog's eye out, the animal slunk off whining pitifully.- Mary Ann Robins, living at 3, Spring-bank, East- brook, gave corroborative evidence, and defendant asked for an adjournment of the case for the production of evidence, the defendant not having been served with a summons till Friday.-The bench granted an adjournment for a fortnight.
"IT TOUCHES THE SPOT." Aye, tli-it is what HOMOCEA" does. A"d dees it quickly, t<x>—whether it's a toothache or neuralgia, with all theii shooting pains', or eczema, with its painful and distressing in"itation -or piles, that make thousands of lives wretehee.. Rheuma- tism in the joints or muscles has been cured even of years' standing—while for cute, burns, and bruises it's far, very far, ahead of any ointment that has ever been put before the public. LORD C iRRICK says HOUOCEA. cured him of bleeding piles, when all else failed; that he sjave some to a labourer who was lamed by a stone falling upon him, whom it cuved. A woman had a pain in the elbow and could not bend it for a year, and it cured her, and another used it for ecurvy 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 COMB ERMERE says HOMOCEA did him more good than any embrocation he had ever used for rheumatism. TESTIMONIAL FROM THE GREAT AFRICAN EXPLORER, HENRY M. STANLEY. Whitehall, London. Dear Rir, -Your oint- ment, called HOMOCEA, 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- ncss so requisite for perfect and efficient massage. The fault of embrocations, gene- rally, is that they harden and require warmth, where as yours, besides being particularly aromatic, is as soft as oil, and almost instantly mollifying in the case of severe inHammation.—YoujM faithfully, HENET M. STANLEY." Remember that HOJICCEA subdues inflammation and allays irritation almost as soon as applied. All wholesale houses stock HOMOCEA. It can be ebtained from Chemists and others at Is. 1M. or 2s. 9d. per box, or will be sent by post for Is. 3d. and 38. from the wholesale agency, 21, Hamilton Square, Birkenhead.
BARRY LOCAL BOARD AGAIN DISCUSS THE SITES' QUESTION. SUITABLE LAND NOW SECURED OFF HOLTON-ROAD. BUT THE OFFICES QUESTION HAS ONCE MORE BEEN SHELVED. At the monthly meeting of the Barry and Cad- oxton Local Board, held on Tuesday afternoon last, Dr P. J. O'Donnell in the chair, Alderman J, C. Meggitt moved the adoption of a recommenda- tion by the Sites Committee that an acre of land be leased for a period of 99 years, for the purposes of site for the proposed permanent public offices for the district, from the Barry Dock Town Syndicate, at the junction of Crossways-street and Tynewydd-street, at a rental of J660 per acre, the rent for the first year to be £ 20 second year, :£30; third year, 440 fourth year, £ 50 and all succeeding years, jESO per year. Several offers. Mr Meggitt said, had been made to the Board of sites in the district, but the committee felt that the land in question was the most suitable and economic&L The lease of the present offices at Cadoxton wonld expire next year. and the only offices which the Board would then have in their own right were the gas and water offices at Barry DocK. For a. public library the Board had no land available, so that the committee recommended that an acre of land, as described, be secured by the Local board, upon which to erect permanent public offices and a public library. The site, he considered, was a central one.—Mr B. Lewis No, certainly not.- Mr Meggitt, continuing, remarked that practically the whole of the committee were agreed that the land in question was centrally situated, but he would add, in connection with his motion, a sug- gestion that the road leading thereto be widened from 40ft., as proposed to be constructed, to 50ft. -Mr W. Thomas (Cadoxton) seconded.—Mr B. Lewis opposed the motion. The position, he said, was not a central one. neither was it on the main road. The public offices, he considered, should be placed off the main road, and not in a back street, as was mow intended. Within a few hundred yards of the proposed site the Board already held about five acres—in Court-road—upon which they could erect permanent offices-a plot, he said, which was not only centrally situated, but abutted upon one of the most favourable roads in the district. Holton-road in the future, he considered, would be the Bute-road of Barry, and he certainly urged that, whatever they did, they should place the public offices in a respectable position so far as the future was concerned. He would, therefore, propose, as an amendment, that the offer be not entertained for the present.—Mr W. Thomas C'he Hayes), seconded, and said he fully concurred with Mr Lewis' remarks.—Mr Mr George Thomas reminded the Board that the difficulty of securing suitable land in the district increased year by year. and in a very short time it would be almost impossible to secure a square acre in any suitable position.—Mr W.Thomas (Cadox- ton), replying to Mr Lewis' remarks as to the Court-road land, said that if they built the public offices near the slaughter-house they would be placing them upon the main sewer.—Mr Meggitt said they should certainly secure land at once, although he did not suggest for a moment that they should build offices for some time. because he did not think the district was in a position at present that they could afford to erect permanent offices,-On the amendment being put to the meet- ing, Dr Treharne, Mr B. Lewis, and Mr W. Thomas (The Hayes) supported the same, the recommend- ation of the committee being voted for by the Chairman, Messrs J. C. Meggitt, W. Paterson, and W. Thomas (auctioneer), Mr George Thomas and Mr J. Jewel Williams remaining neutral, being interested in the land in question. The com- mittee's recommendation was accordingly declared adopted.-A somewhat lengt hy discussion followed, upon a proposal by Mr Meggitt that the surveyor be instructed to prepare rough plans and estimate of offices on the gas works site for the accommo- dation of the officials of the Board at a cost, he suggested, of about :£2,000, an arrangement which would prove more economical and convenient than the present system, and would meet the requirements of the Board for some time. This extension, he explained, would not interfere with the ultimate erection of the permanent offices, and the extended buildings could then be utilised for the growing requirements of the gas works.— Mr W. Paterson seconded the proposal; but Mr B.Lewis,determined, he said, to act conscientiously, stated he was astonished that Mr Meggitt should attempt to saddle the ratepayers with the cost of an extension of offices on the gas works site as well as having to pay for land for permanent buildings. To spend je2,000 upon such a scheme, he considered, was simply madness, and a disgrace to them as a body of public men. He consequently moved that no additional offices be provided on the gas works site.—The Chairman said this was. not an amendment, but a direct negative.—Mr W. Thomas (Cadoxton) then proposed, as an amend- ment, that the surveyor prepare plans for temporary offices on the land just secured for the permanent buildings, the more elaborate structure to be erected at a future time,—Mr J. J. William*^ formally seconded the amendment, and reminded the board that any extension made to the gae works offices ceuld eventually be utilised for gas and water purposes alone.—Mr Meggitt said if Mr Thomas' amendment was agreed to they would still have their official staff separated, and he should like to know what would be the difference in the co-t between Mr Thomas' jt-heme and the one he proposed. The amendment he maintained would involve a much larger expendi- ture.—Mr George Thomas considered the board should be supplied with a statement showing the aetual accommodation required. — The Chair- man said he had been the means of per- suading Mr Meggitt from his original scheme, to establish the permanent offices- on the gas works site, on the ground that, as a Board, they were pledged to establish the public library on the same land as that secured for the permanent offices. He hoped now they would be able to further persuade Mr Meggitt to refer the entire question to the sites committee of the board and the public libraries committee, sa that a definite scheme might be formulated.—At this stage the amendment was put to the meeting, but the mover only voted in its favour against- the Chairman, Dr Treharne, Mess-rs J. C. Meggitt, W. Thomas (The Hayes), and B. Lewis.—Mr W. Thomas (Cadoxton) Y8u better say I stand alone against the board. (Laughter. )-TheCha.irman then proposed, as counter amendment, that the matter be referred to the sites committee of the board and the public libraries committee, but Mr George Thomas objected on the ground that the public libraries committees was not directly responsible to the ratepayers, being simply managers of a fund transferred to them by the Loctl Loard.—There was no seconder to the latter amendment, and it consequently fell through. — For the original motion, Mr Meggitt and Mr Paterson only vdted against—the Chairman, Dr Treharne, Messrs W. Thomas (The Hayes;, and VV. Thomas (Cadoxton).
