DEATH OF MR HAYDN PARRY. A BRILLIANT WELSHMAN SUD- DENLY PASSES AWAY. HIS FATHER IS DR PARRY, OF PENARTH. It is with profound regret that we have this week to chronicle the death of Mr Haydn Parry. The sad event took place at 2.30 on Thursday morning at his residence, 87, Broadhurst-gardens, Finchley-road, N.W., after a comparatively brief and sudden illness. On Friday last the young musician returned home from a friend's house complaining of chill, which he thought he had caught on the way home. No serions effects were anticipated, but the next morning, after a restless night, he was seized with severe shivering attacks, and in consequence Dr Waite was sent for. He gave it as his opinion that his patient was suffering from a recurrence of an old complaint-American ague-which Mr Parry caught in 1884 in the States and pre- scribed accordingly. The invalid would have liked to have gone downstairs, but his wife and mother (Mrs Joseph Parry), who had come up from Penarth to spend the Easter, prevailed upon him to keep to his room. Mr Parry, however, got up, but did not leave his apartment. During the day he was seized with a nasty cough, and on Sunday it would seem that pleurisy and pneumonia were complicating the original attack. On Monday about five o'clock poor Parry's cough became so dis- tressing, almost shaking him to pieces, that it was deemed advisable to call in Dr Hardwicke. But, though considering their patient's cundition somewhat serious, no danger was apprehended. On Tuesday, how- ever, Mr Parry began to be delirious, and it was at once recognised that his condition was critical. Dr Hardwicke, in fact, paid six visits that day, so alarmed had he become. At this time Mrs Hydn Parry was assisted not only by her husband's mother, but also by Mr and Mrs Mendelssohn Parry, and every care and attention that man could have was given. On Wednesday, as the delirium appeared to increase, Dr Sir Frederick Roberts was called in. After examination and consultation with his colleagues, he could offer the anxious relations but little hope. The sufferer, he ieared, had not the strength to cope with such a complication of diseases as had seized hold of him. But effort was Dot relaxed, and physicians with coats off fairly fought with death all the day and into the greater part of the night. Poor Parry, though at times recognising those around him, was in the throes of delirium. In one of his calm moments he kissed his sorrowing wife and children and spoke cheerfully to the other members of the family, but it was for a brief period only. The physicians, knowing that delirium would attack him again, administered a sleeping draught. The poor suffering form was calmed he slumbered for a couple of hours, and at half-past two gently passed away. BIOGRAPHY OF THR DECEASED. Wherever the fact of Mr Parry's death has be- come known, the sincerest regret was expressed. All classes felt that a young life full of brightest promise had been cut down, they felt, too, of the young widow's loss, of the mother's sorrow, and of the blighted hopes of the father who had dreamed of brilliant achievements which he knew the future had in store for his eldest son. From baby- hood Mr Haydn Parry was a musician, and, under the guidance, or. shall we eay, with the inherited enthusiasm ? of his father he soon developed a gift given but to a few. Born at Danvil, Pensylvania, U.S.A.. on April 8, 1864, the early part of his education was received in America, where his father lived for many years. On their return to this country Mr Parry completed his course at the University College, Aberystwith. He early showed an aptitude for composition, and at the Liverpool Eisteddfod in 1884 he took the JE20 prize for a sonata. Two years later Mr Parry, out of 300 candidates, was appointed assistant-master at HAITOW, q,nd a year later received the apoint- saent of organist at the parish church. In 1890 he was also elected a professor at the Guild-hall. The same year his cantata, Gwen," was produced at the St. James's-hall, where it met with great success. His most important venture, however, was the production of a comic opera, Cigarette." The experiment was watched with some anxiety, both by the young composer and his wide circle of friends. Undoubted success was attained both in Cardiff and in London, critics and public com- bining in praising the piece and believing -that the author of such melodious and stirring music would produce really great work later on. In August, 1892, "Cigarette" was produced at the Cardiff Theatre Royal. 'The next worn was on somewhat similar lines. Miami" was produced in the Princess Theatre, London, in 1893, and failed, according to the unanimous opinion of the critics, through no fault of the composer. On the contrary, it was predicted that a man who could create the music found in "Cigarette" and Miami was worth watching. This now is finished. Death has laid its hand on the life that seemed fated to be great, and the work that might have been done is left undone, or done by others. Part of this is a piece ,on which Mr Parry was at work for the next musical festival at Cardiff. All Wales will grieve at the loss of its brilliant son. The deceased, who was assistant professor at the Musical College of Wales, was a successful song writer, his best known being Strive, Wait, and Pray (words by Adelaide Procter). Regret," and Abide with me."
PENARTH CONSERVATIVE CLUB. A largely-attended meeting of the shareholders -of the Clive Conservative Club, Penarth, was held at the club premises on Thursday evening last. Mr Thome, chairman of the directors, presided. The popular manager. Mr Jeffries, gave an account of the working of the club from its commence- ment, which was considered highly satisfactory. Owing to the nominal amount necessary for pro- curing a share, Mr Jeffries submitted for the con- sideration of the shareholders a scheme whereby, if subscriptions can be obtained from the share- holders and others, it should be divided as follows :—One-third to be given to political pur- poses, one-third to charity, and the remaining one- third to go towards paying the expenses of management of the club. This scheme was heartily approved of, and the shareholders expressed their determination to assist Mr Jeffries in carrying it out.
LORD BUTE AND BARRY HARBOUR. THE PROPOSED OPPOSITION TO THE BARRY COMPANY'S BILLS. Acting on behalf of Lord Bute and the Bute Docks Company, Mr Lewis Thomas, of the survey- ing department, Bute Offices, Cardiff; Mr John Thomas, The Leys and another gentlemen repre- senting the Bate interests, visited Barry Harbour on Friday last, and took surveys and soundings for the purposes of the opposition on behalf of the Bute authorities to the Barry Company's bills now before Parliament. A numerous party, headed by Captain Pomeroy, will also visit Barry Harbour this week for a similar purpose.
HECHABITISM AT PENARTH. The annual meeting in connection with the Loyal Briton Tent of llechabites was held in the 'Tent Room, Arcot-street, Penarth, on Thursday evening last. The proceedings commenced with a social tea, provided hy Mr and Mrs Love, assisted :by other ladies, ather which an entertainment was 'helrl, being ably managed by Mr Ellis Roberts, at vwhieh some good songs and recitations were given.
PENARTH LOCAL BOARD. The monthly meeting of the Penarth Local Board was held on Monday evening last at Penarth, present-Messrs T. Bevan (chairman). D. Morgan, L. Purnell, H. Snell, Councillor W. B. Shepherd, G. Pile, and R. Bevan, with Mr J. W. Morris (clerk), E. I. Evans (surveyor). T. Mazey (in- spector), and J. Llewellyn (collector). THE PROPOSED ROAD IMPROVEMENT AT COGAN. The Surveyor submitted plans and estimates for the widening and improvement of the road from the bottom of Cogan to Cogan Hill, land being required from the Taff Vale Railway. and Mr Corbett to accomplish the same. It was stated that Mr Corbett would not transfer the land until the Board carried out certain improvements on the same to the extent of about £ 462. it being also pointed out that the land was valuable for build- ing purposes.—Mr D. Morgan considered the argument should be put forward that Mr Corbett's father promised the land provided the fencing of the same was erected by the Board.—It was at length resolved to improve the thoroughfare for pedestrian traffic from Cogan Station to Cogan, and abandon the improvement of that part of the road over the bridge to the top of Cogan Hill. PLANS. The following plans were passed :—Printing premises in Hicktr an-road, for Mr C. W. Williams additions to 31, Grove-terrace, for Mrs Evans; alterations to 30 and 31, Arcot-street, for Mr W. J. Jones. SHOWING THE NEED OF A PUBLIC SLAUGHTER- HOUSE. The Surveyor stated he had been asked if part of the bakehouse at 29, Windsor-road, might be converted into a slaughter-house. The air space did not comply with the bye-laws, as there should be 15ft. open space, whereas there were only 12ft.-Councillor Shepherd considered the bye-laws should be adhered to.—Mr Morgan Adjoining these premises is a back lane, and the animals going to slaughter might prove dangerous to children passing.—Mr Pile Seeing there is an infringement of the bye-laws, the application should not be granted.—Mr Morgan We have no slaughter-house in Penarth, but certainly the board can refuse to comply with this request.-It was decided that the applicant, a Mrs Jones, be asked to make formal application to the Board, submitting plans, &c. INFRINGEMENT OF THE BYE-LAWS. With regard to a nuisance at Hill's-terrace, the Surveyor reported two additional houses had been occupied since notice had been served to carry out certain alterations thereat, and no steps had been taken to remedy the defects. He (the surveyor) had seen Mrs Smith, and warned her that the board would immediately take proceedings against her husband in the matter. One of the new occu- pants had already complained of bad smells emanating from the drains.-The Chairman re- marked the matter was a serious one, and it was decided that legal proceedings be taken against the owner. THE SITE ON THE PROPOSED DISINFECTING APPARATUS. In reference to the above, the health committee recommended the board to adopt the site off Dock- road.—The Chairman asked if the sub-committee had gone into the matter of cost.—Mr Snell re- plied in the negative, adding that the committee were as yet about writing to Mr Forrest asking the cost of the land.—The Chairman remarked that he was of the same opinion with regard to this question as he was some months ago. Con- sidering it was proposed to erect the disinfecting apparatus near buildings, and as there were many suitable acres of land still unbuilt upon, it was manifestly unfair to the population of this particular spot in erecting the apparatus in their midst. It was all very well for medical experts to say there was no risk attached to th" disinfecting apparatus; of course, they all held different opinions, but if there was no particular risk attached he could not see for one moment why they wanted to erect the apparatus at all. His view was that the apparatus should be erected on land where the infectious diseases hospital for the district would in future be established. Consider- ing the matter thoroughly he thought it unfair to the north side of Penarth, and especially to the people of that ward, to make the erection thereat. —Mr Pile considered it was premature yet to go on with the question, and he was of opinion it should lie in abeyance.-Councillor Shepherd held that it was not two near the house.—Mr R. Bevan said as a member of the north ward he was instructed to oppose tha erection thereat He opposed it because it was two near the houses already built close by the lime kiln, and also because it would be adjoining the main thoroughfare to the docks. If there was danger to a small degree he wanted to know why they should risk the lives and health of the inhabitants when there was no necessity to do so. —Mr Snell remarked that the medical officer had assured the Board there was no danger. There was a resolution, he said. to erect a disinfecting apparatus, and if this was not done they must rescind that resolution, and. as a member of the committee, he proposed that the recommendation of that body be adopted.—Mr Pile As we have no terms to hand as to the cost of the land why adopt anything at all ?—Mr Snell added to his proposition And that the clerk be instructed to ascertain the cost of site," which was duly seconded.—Mr R. Bevan moved, as an amendment, that the question of site be referred back, and Mr Pile seconded.-The proposition of Mr Snell was carried by four votes to three. DEFECTIVE HOUSE DRAINAGE IN 8TANWELL- ROAD. It was reported that the drainage to the house, No. 29, Stanwell-road, was defective, the matter being left in the hands of the surveyor. THE T.V.R. AND THE LEVEL CROSSING AT PENARTH. A letter was read from Mr Beasley. general manager of the Taff Vale Railway, stating the company had decided not to contribute towards the erection of a bridge over their crossing at Penarth, not being responsible for any accidents occurring thereat.—Mr R. Bevan asked whether the Government inspector had not considered this crossing to be a dangerous one.—The Clerk answered in the affirmative.—Mr D. Morgan If the company is not liable why should they employ a man at this crossing for five or six years ? I think the Board might venture to pass a resolution asking the Taff Vale Railway to protect the cross- ing.—Mr Purnell remarked the company had refused to contribute towards a bridge, and he did not think they would agree to protect the crossing. -Mr Pile said the arrangement was very unsatis- factory. The crossing was in the centre of the town, and no one could get across from one side to the other only by this way.—Mr Purnell thought the Board should communicate with the Board of Trade.-The matter was referred back to the sub- committee, the clerk being also requested to correspond with the Board of Trade on the question. CONTRACTS FOR THE SUPPLY OF STONE. The seal of the Board was affixed to the contracts for the supply of stone as follows :-St. Ive's Company, 500 tons at 8s per ton Mr W. Key, 500 tons at 5s per ton. APPOINTMENT OF INSPECTOR OF PLEASURE BOATS. The Chairman stated that at the last meeting of the baths committee the question of the ap- pointment of an inspector of pleasure boats was raised, and as the Easter holidays intervened between that meeting and the next meeting of the board, the committee instructed the surveyor and himself to make temporary appointment, and they selected Mr George Morgan, of Salop-place, Penarth.—The applications for the permanency, at jtH5 for the season, were then handed in from three persons, and on the motion of Councillor Shepherd, seconded by Mr D. Morgan, Mr G. Morgan was re-appointed.—Agreed. COMPLAINT BY BOATMEN. A complaint was received by the board from several boatmen with regard to unlicensed youths being allowed to take out passengers in boats, thus interfering with the business of licensed boatmen. The letter was signed by Messrs S. Guppy, A. Vincent, D. Vincent, Lendon, Penberthy, Wilson, and A. Ellis.-A deputation also attended in connection with the same complaint,-Mr. Lendon, the spokesman, stating children were sent out with boats containing* passengers by men having in their possession five or six boats. It was not fair nor safe to allow children the management in this way, and they would ask the board to take steps to put a stop to the practice.-The Chairman informed the deputation that the inspector would thoroughly investigate the matter. A BAND STAND REQUIRED ON THE PROMENADE. A communication was read from the Cardiff Military Band asking that a band stand should be erected on the Promenade, Penarth.—The Clerk did not think that the board had power to erect a band stand thereat, and the matter dropped. A COMPLAINT. Mrs M. A. Vickery wrote informing the board that since the private improvements to her pro- perty in Dock-road had been carried out water ran under the boards of one of the houses, and the floor was rotting.-Referred to the Public Works Committee. THE FREE LIBRARIES ACT. In connection with the coming into force on the 31st ult. of the Public Libraries Act at Penarth. the following committee of members of the board and outside gentlemen was appointed to consider the matter further, and make recom- mendations to thf board :-Messrs J. Y. Strawson, H. Snell, Councillor Shepherd, G. Pile, and T. Bevan, members of the board, and Messrs J. M. Jennings, G. Carslake Thomas, Councillor F. Jotham. and J. Ballinger (librarian, Cardiff), the committee having power to add to their number. THE PROPOSED CARDIFF EXHIBITION. The hon. secretaries (Messrs W. J. Trounce and Walter Cook) of the proposed Cardiff exhibition wrote asking for the co-operation of the Board in connection with the proposed exhibition to be held in Cardiff, also enclosing circulars soliciting guarantees. CONSIDERATION OF TENDERS. The following tenders were accepted for different supplies to the Board for six months :-Hay and straw. Mr Langley, Penarth coal, the Penarth Coal Company, at 13s 9d per ton. For the reparing of highways seven tenders were received, viz. Thomas, 10. Pill-street, Cogan, JS59 George Vicarage, £ 60 W. Jones, Cogan, :£60; Bagley, Penarth, :£60; E. Lewis, Dinas Powis, £ 65; D. John, £ 67 Millard, Eastbrook. £ 70. On the pro- position of Mr Pile. Mr Thomas' tender, at :£i9, being the lowest, was accepted Mr R. Bevan's motion, seconded by Mr Purnell, that Mr D. John's tender (:£67) be selected, was lost.—Mr T. Emlyn Jones' tender for the supply of iron- mongery, &c., was accepted. EXTENSION OF THE OUTFALL SEWEB. The following tenders were received for the carrying out of the extension of the outfall sewer :—W. Chaplin, JE920 Rogers, :£852 6s 6d Thomas Rees, JB836 John McICay, £ 766 3s and Messrs Bachelor and Saunders, :£682.-0n the, motion of Mr D. Morgan, the lowest tender, that of Messrs Bachelor and Saunders, was accepted. THE NEW RATE. Mr D. Morgan moved, and Councillor Shepherd seconded, that the general district rate for the coming half-year be Is in the £ .—Agreed. APPOINTMENT OF MEDICAL OFFICER. His ordinary period of office having expired, Dr. Nell was formally re-appointed medical officer of health, on the motion of the Chairman, seconded by Councillor Shepherd. SCHOOL CHILDREN AND BATHING. Mr R. Bevan brought forward the desirability of-1 allowing the school children to bathe at the baths during week days, the girls in the morning and the boys in the afternoon, to be accompanied by their respective teachers.-No resolution was passed, the matter being deferred. This concluded the public business of the Board.
THE CONTINUITY QUESTION. CORRESPONDENTS STILL INTERESTED IN THE SUBJECT. To the Editor of the "BARRY DOCK NEWS." SIR,—I really think the Undivided gentleman should study the commandment Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour." All through this correspondence he has accused me, and Catholics generally, of being untruthful. I am very glad to find that, though calling Iiimself a priest, he agrees with me that at the Reformation priests became ministers," but I hardly think Mr Collette and Ritualistic members of the (according to him) Undivided Church of England would agree with him. They maintain they have true orders, which means a priesthood. A minister does not mean a priest, and the heads of the Church of England under Queen Elizabeth did not believe in the Sacrament of Orders. As to the Catholic clergy "fleecing" their flocks before the Reformation, I had thought that all Protestant historians of standing agreed as to their great charity and liberality to the English poor, who were daily fed at the monasteries, ice., and. educated free by parish priests. Such a charge comes extremely ill from a minister of that State Church whose founders emptied the monasteries, and wrecked them, even stripping the lead from roofs to sell it, confiscated their lands and revenues, and in so doing committed one of the sins crying to heaven for vengeance. i.e., oppression of the poor, besides all the sacrileges involved. Even the poor dead were deprived of the charity funds left for masses for their souls. Whatever of the spoils did not go to the Crown, nobles, and hangers-on, went to endow the Church of England. Meanwhile the poor, who certainly had no cause to bless the Reformation, wandered about homeless and starving, till things came to such a pass that the workhouse and the poor-rate had to be invented to replace the free Christian charity of Catholic England. Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones." In the very first letter I addressed to your paper I pointed out how the Church of England parsons, while receiving the stipends of Welsh livings, neglected the Welsh people till they became dissenters, and, in these days, while Wales is mainly dissenting, the successors of those same parsons hold those same livings. I would advise your correspondent to study the Protestant Cobbett's History of the Reformation." I have not a copy by me, but, if I remember rightly, he gives some very interesting details as to the money-collecting powers of certain of the higher clergy of the Church of England. I have never read his Legacy to Parsons," but I believe that is very forcible also. The fear of disestablishment and disendowment is at the bottom of all the Church of England fuss about continuity. We should not hear so much of it but for that scare. A certain parson, in the course of a discussion with a priest of my acquaintance, confessed he knew we Catho- lics had the truth, but the Church of England had the money, and that was what he wanted for his family. As to St Peter, it is only the old distinction between infallibility and impeccability. Our Lord never said, 1, Thou shalt be impeccable." but foretold Peter would thrice deny Him, which he did through fear, not through want of faith. This did not prevent our Lord appointing him to the headship of the Church, and saying to him, Feed my sheep, feed my lambs." Your correspondent states good Catholic doctrine when he says that he honours our blessed lady as mother of our Lord, and a chosen vessel of God, though never more than woman." If he means to imply Catholics do more, and make a goddess of her, he is mistaken. He is quite wrong in assuming that a law made by the Church for special reasons becomes the law of God. A law of the Church can be dispensed at any time by the Pope. This is continually done with regard to the law of the Church on fasting. Twice, during recent years, Catholics in England have had the Lenten fast abrogated by the Pope on account of the infiuenza.I remain. Sir, faith- fully yours, A. E. P. ROSS.

THE ALLEGED PRIZE FIGHT AT PENARTH. THE PRINCIPALS BEFORE THE MAGISTRATES. INSPECTOR RUTTER DID NOT DON THE GLOVES. HOW POLICE RECRUITS WHILE AWAY LEISURE. The prosecution at Penarth Police Court on Monday last, of the two principals, John Williams. described as a butcher, and Albert Jones, a coal trimmer, both of Cardiff, for being concerned in the intended prize fight at No. 1, Salop-street, Penarth, on the 22nd ultimo, was after all bereft of any associations of an exciting character. The presiding magistrates were Colonel Guthrie and Major Thornley. and the defendants were re- presented by Mr T. H. Belcher, solicitor, Cardiff.- One or two amusing incidents distinguished the evidence of the police (Inspector Rutter and Police- constable Ebenezer Rees), whose interference on the occasion was the means of bursting the bubble.In the course of cross-examination Inspector Rntter admitted the crowd asked him to try on the gloves and have a spar, but he declined. (Laughter.) Some of the police recruits had a friendly encounter with gloves in the station-yard occasionally, but this was not a fight for money. (Renewed laughter.)—Mr Belcher proceeded to open for the defence, contending that there was no .intention on the part of those engaged to take part in a prize fight, but simply to have an innocent glove fight for a medal. the best man to be sent to London in view of another boxing match.—Before Mr Belcher con- cluded his address, the Bench stopped the case and dismissed the defendants.
EASTER VESTRY AT PENARTH. The annual vestry was held at St Augustine's Church, Penarth, on Friday evening last, under the presidency of the rector (Rev W. Sweet- Escott). There was a good attendance of parish- ioners. The statement of accounts presented by the churchwardens (Messrs H. Snell and D. Rees) showed a total revenue of d6319 18a 5d, and expen- diture and liabilities of j6330 15s 4d, a deficit of J610 16s lid.—The accounts for All Saints' Church, submitted by the treasurer (Mr S. A. Brain) gave receipts of 4248 15s, and expenses amounting to £ 298 10s 7d, leaving a balance due to the treasurer of £ 47 15s 7d.-The Rector explained that the expenses of St Paul's Church were borne this year by St Augustine's. The offertories amounted to A 15, which he thought highly satisfactory, and the balance of expenditure payable by St Augustine's was 417 19s 8d.-The accounts were approved and adopted.-The Rector, acting on the suggestion of a previous vestry that the church wardens should be appointed two years in succession and then retire, chose Mr Snell as his warden for a second year. By the same arrangement Mr D. Rees was unanimously re-elected parish warden. Mr Brain was again appointed treasurer of All Saints. He expressed a hope that something might be done to clear off the building debt of £ 1.000.—The Rector thought something might be done for All Saints* in the present year, especially as they had to contemplate the provision of another church in Lower Penarth if- it continued to extend as at present.—Mr C. Tonkin suggested a subscription in aid of All Saints', and offered to commence it.— As warden of All Saints', Mr Curthoys was elected. Sidesmen were appointed, and thanks expressed to the'wardens and church officers, the hon. auditor (Mr A. T. Taverner), the organist, and choirs of both churches for their services in the past year, and to the rector for presiding over the vestry.— Mr Bissett asked if the time had yet come when they could have services twice daily in the church. The direction of the Book of Common Prayer was, he thought, very precise on the point. —The Rector said he had not the slightest objection, provided the services were attended, but he did not believe in unattended services.- Among the parishioners present at the meeting were Messrs S. A. Brain, H. Snell, D. Rees, T. S. Lloyd. L.PurneH.H.J.Vellacott, Singer, Morgan, Curthoys, and Jenkins.—The statement of accounts of All Saints' Church, after being read by Mr S. A. Brain, were, on the motion of Mr Hern, and seconded by Mr Macintosh, adopted.—Mr Brain was unanimously re-elected churchwarden, as was also Mr L. Purnell.-On the motion of Mr C. White, seconded by Mr Vellacott, it was resolved to draw the local board's attention to the unsatis- factory state of Church-avenue, one of the approaches to the Parish Church.
PENARTH POLICE COURT. MONDAY. — Before Colonel Guthrie and Major Thornley. APPLICATION ORDER. Mary Gormand, a young woman, summoned James Hutchins, both of Penarth, for an affiliation order. Mr T. H. Belcher, solicitor, Cardiff, appeared for the complainant, and said defendant admitted the paternity, and an order was made for the pay- ment of 2s 6d per week for fourteen years, and costs. IT WAS WASHING DAY AND SHE GOT GIDDY. Jane Dando, a married woman, living in Glebe- street, Penarth, was charged by Police-constable 249 wi h being drunk and disorderly on the 15th instant. The constable having given evidence, defendant denied the offence, and said it was her washing day and she felt giddy, but was not in drink 'at all, neither was she disorderly.—James Dando, husband of defendant, was called for the defence, but he admitted a crowd assembled about the door, and the police were sent for by himself. as crowds were in the habit of collecting about the house. (Laughter.)-Fined 5s, or seven days. OBSTRUCTION ON THE ESPLANADE AT PENARTH. Samuel Matthews, a hawker, was charged with causing an obstruction on the Esplanade at Penarth on Easter Monday. Inspector Rutter said on the morning named he saw several persons hawking oranges on the esplanade. He ordered them away, but defendant would not go. The offence was a violation of the bye-laws of the Local Board, and a considerable nuisance was occasioned by men like the defendant hawking things about.—Defendant was fined 5s and costs. DRUNK DURING THE EASTER HOLIDAY. John Cresswell, a respectable-looking man, was fined 2s 6d for being drunk on the 27th ultimo at Penarth. P.C. 249 proved the case. A DISHONEST BARRY SAILOR SENT TO PRISON. George Stockdade, a sailor, who was arrested by Sergeant Gammon in a house in Gueret-street, Barry Dock, was sent to prison for a fortnight's hard labour, without the option of a fine, for stealing a pair of boots from the shop of Mr G. Couzens, clothier. Thompson-street, on Tuesday night. Prisoner, who wept on hearing the sentence, said he had no felonious intention, and intended returning the boots. SERIOUS CHARGE AGAINST A YOUNG MAN. Henry Heath, a young man of respectable appearance, was charged with stealing three ducks belonging to Jane Lewis, at Leckwith, on the 20th ult.-After bearing preliminary evidence from Mrs Lewis and William Hedges, gamekeeper, the Bench adjourned the case for a week, defendant being admitted to bail in £20, his own recognisances being accepted.

LOCAL FOOTBALL. PENARTH Y. GLOUCESTER. The period of suspension which the Gloucestrians have undergone seems to have done them a deal of good, for since the end of their enforced holiday they have won three good matches in succession, so their tussle with Penarth on Saturday last, was looked forward to with a considerable amount of interest. Alexander, who was advertised to turn out for Penarth, felt unfit at the last moment, his place oeing taken by W. G. Lambert. The teams were finally com- posed as follows :-Pntarth: B.ck—C. T. Kirby three- quarter back— H. Kirby, R. M. Garrett, G. W. Lambert, and H. E. Morgan (captain); half-back— T. Hutchitigs and G. W. Shepherd; forward -E. Ellis, G. Brown, D. Evans, P. Jackson, W. B. Gibbs, G. Matthews, T. Morris and F. Matthews. Gloucester: Back-A. F. Hughes: three-quarter back—W. H. Taylor (captain), Collins, F. E. Miller, and Cumming. half-backs-T. Bagwell and A. Stephens; forwards— Pitt, A. Willings, A. H. Chick, C. Williams. Rose, Mayo, Leighton, and D. Phelps. Referee, Mr W. M. Shepherd (Cardiff F.C.) Final score—Penarth, two goals, one try, two minors Gloucester, one goal, one minor. Gloucester mainly owe their defeat to a lack minor. Gloucester mainly owe their defeat to a lack of combination. The efforts of the backs to pass were throughout, of a very scroggy nature. In the forwards they held their own fairly well. except when they attempted to heel out. and thev then were rushed off their feet, but taken all rouna the play of their front rank was fairly good. At half-back Stephens and Bagwell were completely out-played by Shepherd and Hutchings, the former of whom was in magnificent fettle. The two tries which he scored werd parti- cularly fine efforts, and fully deserved the applause with which they were greeted. At three-quarter Penarth, by reason of their combination, naturally held a big advantage over their opponents. Garrett and Morgan in the centre played their usual safe game, both their defence and attack being very sound. Kirby on the wing made one or two good runs, but should certainly have done more out of the numerous chances given him by Garrett. Taylor, who played in the centre, was a long way the best of the visiting quartette, and accomplished some very smart things, once or twice bringing down Kirby in fine style. Both full backs did well. Some of the returns by C. Kirby being very effective. OTHER MATCHES. DINAS POWIS v.

BARRY DISTRICT SCHOOL BOARD. The monthly meeting of the Barry (U.D.) School Board was held on Monday evening last at Holton- road School, Barry Dock. present—Mr J. Lowdon, J.P. (chairman), Mr J. Rees (deputy-chairman), Captain R. Davies, Dr. P. J. O'Donnell, Dr. W. Lloyd-Edwards, Dr. Livingstone, Mr B. Lewis, Mr Geo. Thomas (architect), Mr W. H. Lewis (clerk), and Mr R. T. Rees (the deputy-clerk). THE BOARD AND THE PRESS, Dr. O'Donnell asked, on submission of the minutes of the special meeting of the board held on the previous Thursday weeJt. whether he would be in order in asking the reason why the Press had not been invited to attend that meeting, as he always understood the reporters were only excluded from committee meetings.—The Chair- man replied notification was sent to the Press of the ordinary meetings of the board, but he was not aware intimations were supplied of special meetings. — Dr. O'Donnell repeated that the reporters had attended the special meetings on all- previous occasions, and he might state that be had been informed that it was at the chairman's special request that the Press were not notified on this occasion. PersonajBy, he protested against. the chairman, in his individual capacity, dictating to the clerk whether the meetings were to be open. or not. Notices should have been sent as usual, and it would then be competent for the members to decide at the opening of the meeting whether the reporters should remain or not.—The Chair- man then observed it was quite competent for Dr O'Donnell to have moved that the Press should attend the meeting in question, and, if carried, the av meeting could have been adjourned for that, purpose.-Dr O'Donnell It was quite understood that the Press received notices of all meetings except committee meetings, and I do not see why an exception should have been created in this instance. The matter for discussion was certainly one which warranted due publicity.—The subject. then temporarily dropped, but after the passing of the minutes of different previous meetings, Dr O'Donnell proposed that in future the Press be invited to all meetings of the board, with the exception of committee meetings, and stated that if at any of these meetings business of a private nature was to be considered, the board could very easily convert itself into a general purposes com- mittee. (Laughter.)-Dr Livingstone seconded, and Mr B. Lewis having supported, the motion was declared by the chairman to be carried unanimously. ROMILLY-ROAD INFANT SCHOOL. The seal of the board was attached to a mortgage deed for £ 275 in connection with Romilly-road Infant School. APPOINTMENT OF TEACHER.
