BARRY AND THE QUESTION OF A SEPARATE POOR LAW UNION. LIKE a giant refreshed with wine, the question of the establishment of a sepa- rate Poor Law Union for the Barry district and adjoining parishes has been revived with increased energy and vigour. Notice was given by Alderman Meggitt to bring under the notice of the Local Board, at its last meeting, the question of the desirability of forming a separate Poor Law Union for the Barry district, and Mr Meggitt, in doing so, explained that the Local Government Committee of the County Council, with the view of putting into operation in November next the provisions of the Parish Councils Act, were considering a scheme for the re- arrangement of Poor Law Unions in the County, and in order to bring the claims of the Barry district prominently before the county authorities, Mr Meggitt urged hat a committee be appointed to prepare facts and figures to lay before that body. Mr Meggitt' likewise introduced a sugges- tion for increased representation in the Barry district. It is a singular fact that the parishes of Barry, Cadoxton, and Merthyr Dovan, with a population of about 15,000, have only the samelnumber of guardians as they had years ago when the population was scarcely bfilf that number. The ratable value of th.6 district also has advanced three or four-fold, so that the claims set forth both for a separate Union and for increased repre- sentation are justified to the utmost' possible degree. Mr J. Jewel Williams, one of the guardians of Cadoxton parish, in seconding Mr Meggitt's; motion, advanced additional arguments of a powerful character in support of the movement. If, Mr Williams stated, the ratepayers of the Barry district two years ago contributed an enormous sum per annum towards the Union fund more than they received in return, the same argument could at present be made use of more forcibly than ever, for at least six- pence-halfpenny in every shilling was paid by way of poor rate for which no return whatever was received. Our readers will fully concur with Mr Williams that the Cardiff Union, as at present constituted, is altogether an un- wieldy institution, and the sooner the county parishes are separated from those of the town the better for the interests of all. We believe Mr William Thomas was right when he stated, in the course of the discussion, that the movement for the formation of a separate Union at Barry will receive little or no opposition at the hands of the town guardians, and a golden opportunity is, therefore, now afforded the public of Barry and the surrounding I districts, to take advantage of the present interposition of County Council, and aid the Local Government Committee in for- mulating a scheme for the establishment of the Barry Poor Law Union, which will unquestionably prove more economical arid efficient in operation than has been the case under existing arrangements. This week we simply" open the ball." In future issues we will deal more ex- haustively with the question, jind we invite correspondents to interest them- selves in the movement, and avail them- selves of the medium which our columns afford to promote one of the most impor- tant schemes which, from a local govern- ing point of view, has ever affected Barry. <0. v' ■■ '.>' ,'4 «V K-' i HOW THE CARDIFF CORPORATION MAY MONOPOLISE BARRY. THE proverbial "sour fruit''still make their appearance in the attitude of opposition continually taken up by the Corporation of Cardiff towards Barry interests. What the Cardiff Council really require is to monopolise the staple industry of Barry and make Barry to all intents and purposes a handmaid to Car- diff. This the Corporation are now endeav- ouring to accomplish by means of the pro- posed formation of a Harbour Trust for the entire district. Mr Archibald Hood has stated the Barry directors are willing to assist any scheme that has for its object the uniting of interests calculated to aid in the development of the trade and port, whereby the antagonism of the past would be abolished, provided the interests of the Barry shareholders were safeguarded. It is pointed out by the Cardiff Corporation that difficulties might arise if Cardiff were asked to pledge the rates of Cardiff for property at Barry, but the committee appointed in the matter suggest that the borough be extended to take in Barry, together with a portion of the land lying between the two places, which land would carry with it the fore- shore. The Barry directors may offer no serious objection to this proposal, but the Local Board have yet to be taken into confidence, and before any legislative powers can be obtained by the promoters of the scheme, the local authority at Barry will fully satisfy itself that the public interests of Barry shall not be interfered with.
LOCAL AND GENERAL NOTES Now that the Barry Local Board have in SHOULD SEWER MEN their employ constant SMOKE WHILE AT handa engaged upon WORK. sewer-work, it would, perhaps, be well if consideration were given to an idea which is gaining popularity in I different populous parts of the country. It is that the men be allowed to have an occasional "whiff' while so employed. The Bermondsey vestry have just issued instructions to their surveyors to permit men to smoke whilst employed on sewer-work and similar jobs where the surrounding air is not of the freshest. On the Continent, workmen generally "blow a cloud" whenever they think fit, and would doubtless think prohibition a hardship yet Britons have to be content with a chew of the cudat most. The Local Board have at last been suc- A SITE SECURED FOR cessful in obtaining land BARRY PERMANENT for the erection of per- PUBLIC OFFICES. manent public offices for the district. The posi- tion of the property, so far as the populative area is concerned, is un- questionably central, lying at a convenient distance off the main road at Barry Dock, and easily accessible from all points. Another argument in favour of the transaction is the fact that the rental, commencing at £ 20 a year, finds its maximum at the moderate figure of jE60 a year. The site is an acre in extent, and will be utilised for a public library as well as public offices. It is not intended to undertake the work of erection at once, the object of the Boar<? being to secure land before the oppor- tunity, passed out of their hands, and to con- struct the proposed buildings when they felt- justified by circumstances. One of the most in fluential organs of the PENARTir ESPLANADE Press of the Principality AND THE has taken up the case HAWKING NUISANCE, of the freedom of the Esplanade at Penarth for visitors on holiday occasions especially, and has denounced the practice on the part of hawkers making use of the same to the inconvenience of the public. The Western Mail of Tuesday stated :—There was a. case heard at Penarth Police Court yesterday which had far more public interest than petty sessional issues usually have. It was the prose- cution of a man for hawking on Penarth Esplanade in contravention of the Local Board bye-laws. If there were only one such offender at Penarth on bright and sunny days nobody would complain, but when their number and the persistency of their attentions become in- tolerable the nuisance they create must be sup- pressed with a strong hand. f The report pub- I lished in the Barry BARRY SCHOOL BOARD Dock News last. AND THE week of the pro- ROMAN CATHOLIC SCHOOL, ceedings of a pri- I V vate meeting of the Barry U.D School Board, held a few days previously, to again consider the question of an application made to the Education Department for the recognition of the Roman Catholic School at Barry Dock as a public elementary school, has aroused a considerable amount of interest, and even dissatisfaction, in the district. There seems to be a growing feeling that the Roman Catholic authorities are being harshly dealt with in the matter. It will be admitted, even by the School Board, that the Roman Catholic School was built as a bona fide public elementary school at a time when school accommodation in the Barry district was very deficient indeed, and it is maintained that a great hardship is being thrust upon the school now through the action of the local education authorities in regard to with-holding therefrom the neces- sary qualification entitling it to an annual Governmental grant. When the matter was first brought before the public about two years ago, local feeling was passive, even indifferent but now, seeing that the school continuedto be maintained, oid that efficiently so far as cir- cumstances permit, there is manifestly a grow- ing desire that the case of the Roman Catholic School managers should be heard fairly and impartially. It is felt that, whereas in Cardiff no opposition is offered to applications made to the Education Department for the classifying of denominational schools in the category of public elemetary schools, it seems hard to deal arbitrarily with an institution at Barry which was brought into existence, as we have stated, at a time when the rapidly-growing population of the district so greatly needed adequate school accommodation. The question will be raised at the next meeting of the Barry Trades* Council, wheh the conduct of the Labour member will be taken into account on the matter and we learn that steps are being1 taken to convene a ratepayers' meeting to fully consider the question.
BARRY AND THE OPHTHALMIA CASES. DR. TREHARNE TAKES ALDERMAN JACOBS TO TASK. AND GIVES HIM A LESSON IN ELEMENTARY PATHOLOGY. To the Editor of the BARRY DOCK NEW. DEAR SIR,—I have read a report of certain remarks made by Alderman Jacobs at a meeting of the Cardiff Guardians last Saturday, with reference to the proposal to send a number of ophthalmia. cases to Barry. I was interviewed on the subject by a local pressman, and, as member of the local board, health committee, and school board at Barry, I was naturally greatly concerned. at the attempt alleged to have been made to so seriously jeopardise the public health of the district. I, therefore, felt it1 my duty to protest against the intentions of the guardians unless proper provision were made to isolate the cases. This, judging from the endeavour to secure premises in the centre of population, it was evident they did not intend doing, and I consider the local Press has been the means of doing genuine public service for Barry by its timely and active interference in the matter. I am accused by Alderman Jacobs of having declared ophthalmia to be an infectious disease. I am quite willing to be fairly criticised, but I must object to my opinion being wilfully misconstrued. What I said was that ophthalmia is a contagious disease, and if Alderman Jacoba possesses even an. elementary knowledge of pathology he will, of Ily course, readily concur with me.—Yours, fee., EDWARD TREHARNE. Cadoxton, April 5, 1894.
