THE CONTINUITY QUESTION.
THE CONTINUITY QUESTION. ANOTHER LETTER FROM "A PRIEST OF THE UNDIVIDED CHURCH." To the Editor of the BARRY DOCK NEWS." DEAR SIR.—" A. E. P. Ross generally manages to write a long letter, but that is about all that can be said of his contributions on the subject under discussion, unless one wishes to be unusually frank. Let me just give a list of the authorities he quotes in his last effusion :—(1), The South Wales Argus; (2)," The Comedy of Convocation (3), The Dublin Review (a well-known ultramon- tanemagazine) (4), Father (•?«•) Gasquet (a Roman special pleader (5), Per A. J. Saxton (another of the same kidney). This shows plainly enough that your correspondent is either totally ignorant of the usages of honest controversy, or else that he altogether disregards them. Why does he not bring forward some writer of repute and impar- tiality to support his views ? Because it is not in his power. On the other hand, your correspond- ents of the opposite opinion have quoted many authors, claimed by the Romanists as their very own, to show that the present position of the Roman church is false and uncatholic. There are two other specimens of A. E. P. Ross'unreason to which I wish to call attention. (1) He claims, as a Catholic, to be better informed than I am. Does he then think that I must meekly accept his dread sentence, as that of an infallible judge, that I am no Catholic ? (2) Again, he says that a priest may be a minister, but a minister cannot be a priest" (italics my own). He does not seem to perceive that this statement (if it affects anybody) condemns himself and corroborates me, as anyone may see who looks over the corre- spondence. I wonder is this gentleman so very obtuse as Me pretends to be I Further, I would ask did the South Wales Argus assert that the Bishop in question made the alleged pronouncement ex-cathedra A. E. P. Ross" again displays a singular ignorance of scripture history, and also shows an almost incredible absence of knowledge in regard to the Catholic (in its true sense) doctrines of the incarnation and divinity of our most blessed Saviour, Who is "Very God and very Man." As a child He was subject to the B.V.M. and to St. Joseph, because He was in truth a human child—living and moving and having His being as such. We read that He increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man." (Luke ii., 52.) But when Jesus began His ministry it is plain that all subjection to Mary ceased. He even said to her on one oecasion Woman, what have I to do with thee ?" ( Quid milti et tibi est, mulier ?) And to the woman who said "Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked," He re- plied" Yea, rather blessed are they that hear the word of God and keep it." The Christ in whom Catholics of the Church of England trust is He of Whom it is written, Being made perfect. He became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey Him," who is also able to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them," Who is the Ii one intercessor between God and Man." Moreover, A. E. P. Ross" practically affirms that Dr Lingard is no longer a trustworthy historian, and yet, for many years, his book was a standard work in many Romanist schools, and, I believe, is still used. But this condemnation of Lingard goes farther than probably your weak- sighted correspondent intends, for if the historical research of to-day proves that of yesterday to be false, may it not happen, too, that to-morrow or next day it will be found that all A. E. P. Ross's historical studies have been worse than useless This is merely a hint, however. The truth is, Rome and the Romanists are desirous of forging history in their own supposed interests. Will A. E. P. Ross cease for a while from quoting newspapers, magazines, and epheme- ral.authors, and show us what new light has been shed upon the annals of Britain, when, by whom, their eSecta ? of course, quotiug his authorities. If he will do this then we may presume to think that he is a seeker after truth. But let him remember that the public of Britain have in the main always shown themselves lovers of truth, willing to sacrifioe peace and comfort for its sake that they are the least slavish of all races, and will never be duped nor betrayed into folly by the hearsay or mythology of self-interested deceivers. Leaving M.A. (Cantab)" to settle his own little account,—I remain, dear sir, yours in the One Faith, A PRIEST OF THE UNDIVIDED CHURCH.

(Original ftorg. MY OWN DEAR HOME IN WALES. I care not for the sunny south, Where palms and myrtles grow, Nor do I want the Iceland hills Where rests perpetual snow Give me the land that's always free, The land of hills and dales, It is the sweetest spot to me, My own dear home in Wales Though many wander far away, Far from their childhood's home, Expecting to return some day, No more abroad to roam Those that for love of gain or change To foreign countries sail, They oft will sigh once more to range Around their home in Wales. In summer by the woodland side, Or by the rippling rill, The little primrose in its pride Our hearts with joy would fill; In winter nights around the hearth We told our fairy tales, There is no spot I love on earth Like my dear home in Wales. How many on a distant shore Sit brooding o'er the past, And wishing they were home once more To spend their days at last; And hear the songs they used to hear, To listen to the Sabbath bells, tSee friends and scenes they love so dear Around their home in Wales. If I by fate or fortune sent To distant lands away, The happy hours I here have spent Will cheer me many a day And when I'm called to leave all dear, A call that never fails, May my last resting-place be near My Dear Old Home in Wales MAC.

THE AMALGAMATED SOCIETY OF…
THE AMALGAMATED SOCIETY OF CARPENTERS AND JOINERS. I I The last annual report of the Amalgamated I Society of Carpenters and Joiners has just been issued. The society was established in June, 1860, with headquarters in Manchester. An idea of the workings of the society during this interval may be gleaned from the remarks of the general secretary, Mr F. Chandler, prefacing the report. At the commencement of last year," Mr Chandler states, we had to encounter one of those waves of depression which appears to overtake all branches of industry, with singular regularity, every four or five years, the effect of which was most keenly felt by those of our members engaged in shipbuilding." With regard to the members in the housebuilding industry, the conditions under which the men worked were more satisfactory, securing in numerous instances increased wages and improved working rules, although determined opposition was offered in several localities. During the year several locks-out took place, and it was also found necessary to render financial aid to members in Australia, the remittances amounting to £ 3,000, and dg950 was given in support of the demands of the miners recently on strike in the North of England. During 1893, 56 new branches were opened, the net increase for the year making a total of 629 branches and 40,996 members. The income amounted to £109.722 12s 9d, the expendi- ture being £109,441 13 10!d, or £18,596 13s lid in excess of the previous year. The cash balance was increased to £ 72,920 11s 3d. In connection with unemployed benefit-given to members when thrown out of work-£30,508 12s 51d, or 19s 5d per member, had been expended during the year in replacing tools lost by fire, water, and theft, £2,620 118 IOd sick benefit, £ 24,511 7s lid, or 15s 3d per member; spent in funeral allowances, £ 4,553 benevolent grants, £1,279 12s grants to other trades, £ 1,154. The sum of £ 15,904 18s 10kd had also been distributed under the head of trade privileges, and the expenses in trade management amounted to £2,134 13s 10id. In superannuation the society expended -67,810 6s 2td, and in connec- tion with the last item, Mr Chandler says this branch of the expenditure should be seriously con- sidered, and the society should bear in mind that whilst almost every other liability incurred is subject to fluctuation, this one increases without intermission year by year. The expansion would be provided for by means of general levies imposed from time to time in order to keep up the funds to the requisite amount per member. The sum of d61,730 was distributed in accident benefit. Referring to the Employers' Liability Bill, Mr Chandler expresses the opinion that it is a most serious loss to millions of workers that the measure should be abandoned through the aotion of the House of Lords, and it was, he adds, the duty of the working-classes to insist upon the re- introduction of the Bill at the earliest possible moment. The funds and property of the society at the end of 1893 amounted to upwards of £ 79,449, and over £ 1,100,000 has been expended in benefits to its members. The deaths during the year numbered 344 men and 201 women. Above all," says the general secretary, let there be no division in our ranks, but let each strive to accom- plish the objects our society is designed to pro- mote, and in time we shall read with increasing interest the reports of our operations, and feel proud that we are members of the Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and Joiners." In connection with the Cadoxton-Barry branch, of which Mr Fred Walls, of 18, Burlington-street, is the secretary, there are 64 members, the expen- diture last year amounting to 1234 6s lid, and the balance in hand is £ 183 7s Id.
SEQUEL TO THE VISIT OF LORD…
SEQUEL TO THE VISIT OF LORD STALBRIDGE TO BARRY. A BARRY COMPANY'S OFFICIAL ROBBED. IMPUDENT DECEPTION BY AN UNKNOWN. It will be remembered that on Wednesday week last the morning opened with beautiful bright sunshine, and the Barry Railway Company's prin- cipal officials, with the deputy chairman and one of the directors, were early astir preparing for the reception at Barry Dock of the Right Hon. Lord Stalbridge and his party of gentlemen connected with the London and North Western Railway Company. About noon, however, a heavy storm broke over the district, and during the run round the docks the distinguished party confined them- selves as much as possible to the interior of the special saloon provided. The rain continuing, it was natural to anticipate that the members of the compauy needed additional clothing; so a man, described as of middle height, between 30 and 40 years of age, of rather respectable working-man appearance, wearing a dark blue coat, with dun- garee trousers, and apparently of the seafaring or mechanical engineering class, proceeded to the house of Mr J. H. Hosgood, locomotive superin- tendent of the Barry Company, who lives at Barry, and asked Mrs Hosgood for her husband's overcoat, as he was accompanying Lord Stalbridge over the district, and could not, therefore, come home. Mrs Hosgood, naturally regarding the man's story as a probable one, and, of course, wishing her husband to appear in as favourable a light as possible in the presence of the noble chairman of the L. and N. W., handed to the man Mr Hosgood's best overcoat. The man, however, has not since been heard of, and, so far, the where- abouts of the coat is an equal mystery. The police are making active inquiries into the matter, and have searched high and low amongst the pawnshops of the district, with Penarth and Car- diff, for the missing article.
"IT TOUCHES THE SPOT."
"IT TOUCHES THE SPOT." Aye, that is what HOKOCBA" doea. And dooi it quickly, too-whether it's a toothache or neuralgia, with all their shooting pains, or eczema, with its painful and distressing irritation—or piles, that make thousands of lives wretched. Rheuma- tism in the joints or muscles has been cured even of jean' standing-while for cuts, burns, and bruises ifn far, very far, ahead of any ointment that has ever been put before the public. LORD CARRICK says HOHOCBA cured him of bleeding piles, when all else failed; that he gave some to a labourer who was lamed by a stone falling upon him, whom it cured. A woman had a pa £ n in the elbow and could not bend it for a year, and it cured her, and another used it for scurvy on her leg, and it was doing her good—one letter closes from him with the words, It is the most wonderful ttaS that I ever came across." LORD COMBERMERE says HOXOCXA did him more good than any embrocation he had ever and for rheumatism. TESTIMONIAL FROM THE GREAT AFRICAN EXPLORER, HENRY M. STANLEY. Whitehall, London. "Dear Sir,-Your oint- ment, called HOKOCBA, was found to be the most sooth- ing and efficacious unguent that I could possibly h&ve for my fractured limb, as it seems to retain longer than vany other, that oleaginous- ness 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 inflammation.-Yonrs faithfully, HBITBT M. STANLEY." Remember that HOMOCEA subdues inflammation and allays irritation ahnost as soon as applied. All wholesale houses stock HOKOCBA. It can be obtained from Chemists and others at Is. lid. or 2s. 9d. per box, or will be sent by post for Is. 3d. and 3s. from the wholesale agency, 2i, Hamilton Square, Birkenhead.
THE BARRY COMPANY AND COAL…
THE BARRY COMPANY AND COAL FREIGHTAGE FROM HAFOD AND TREFOREST. A correspondent writes:—"I find some mis- conception prevails respecting the effect which the alteration of Clause 23 of the Barry Railway and Dock Act of 1888, as sanctioned by the Lords' Committee, will have upon the rates to be charged in future to the Barry freighters for the carriage of coal from their collieries to Hafod and Treforest. When the news was telegraphed to Cardiff on Thursday it was stated that, as the Barry Com- pany are confident of carrying their Bill through the Commons' Committee now it has received the sanction of the Lords, an increased charge must be made for coal carried by the Taff to Penarth, the great rival to Barry, or a reduction must be made in the charge to the Barry freighters from their collieries to Hafod and Treforest, and then the Barry Company can increase their rates from Hafod to Barry, or carry coal at a less rate than it can be conveyed to Cardiff and Penarth, either of which courses would be highly injurious to the Taff Vale Company. The Barry freighters are now so confident that they are right that, under legal advice, they will not pay more than the lowest rate,' according to their view, which means dividing the total sum charged by the Taff Vale Railway Company by the number of miles between Hafod and Penarth, and not, as now, between Hafod and Cardiff, in order to get at the rate per mile. This is the bone of contention between the two railway companies. As the alteration is not made retrospective, the sum now due by the Barry freighters to the Taff Vale Railway Company must be paid, but, as the Barry freighters have resolved to refuse to pay it in future, legal proceedings will in a short time be commenced again by the Taff Company to recover the balances arising from the difference in distance between Cardiff and Penarth, and these proceedings will be defended by the Barry freighters, which they have now power to do under the altered clause. To the Taff Vale Com- pany the point is one of almost vital importance, and the Barry Company may use an adverse decision to them as a lever to put into operation their running powers over the Taff Vale line. Should the decision be against the Taff Vale Company they can put in force their running powers at once. The point in dispute, therefote, becomes one of great importance to both com- panies." The Railway Times, referring to the same matter, states that tha decision of the Lords' Committee is something very like a legislative absurdity. Specific rights which were given to a specific railway company six years ago, in lieu of certain running powers which were demanded; are now interpreted as the heritage of the whol community, and although the Taff Vale Railwa Company, as against the Barry, has, under the latter company's Act, the right of cancelling these rates regulations by granting running powers, it will have no such protection against the Barry freighters, who, after all, are only the Barry Railway Company under another name."

A WOUNDING CASE AT CADOXTON-BARRY.
A WOUNDING CASE AT CAD- OXTON-BARRY. On Tuesday afternoon last, Acting-sergeant Ben Davies succeeded in effecting the arrest of a marine fireman named John Patch, lodging at Mrs Fowler's boarding house, Courtenay-road, Cadoxton, on a charge of stabbing with a knife James Atkins, a sailor, living in Travis-street, Barry Dock. The men, it appears, were drinking together at Cadoxton on Monday, and towards evening they fought, and during the fight Patch is alleged to have stabbed Atkins. Another man named Matthew Mark was badly kicked on the right leg, in the fray, both injured men being attended to by Dr. Livingstone. Prisoner was- detained in custody pending his trial.

TO THE GENTLE SOUTH. Welcome, breath of Springtide From the realms of sun, Blow abroad your tidings, Dull old Winter's gone ? For now earth awakens From her leafless dreams, Into greener glory, Born again she seems. For the gems of Flora Open starry eyes, Making all the country Seem a Paradise. Primrose pale and cowslip Violets, blue and white Daffodils and wild flowers Daisies all a-dight. Lo, in every thorn-bush, Up in every tree, Builds the airy song-bird And all day sings he. For now earth awakens, From her songless sleep, Wakens into music Hill and valley deep. Skylark gay and blackbird Thrushes in the dale Sparrows in the hedgeways Wren and nightingale. Gone, the Winter's sadness, Tears now where are they T Man, in life rejoicing, Throws all cares away. Come then, breath life-giving. From the realms of sun, Bringing joy and Spring days, Winters days lilt done I
