ANNUAL ARTILLERY BALL AT j CADOXTON-BARRY. The members of the 11th Company (Cadoxton) 2nd Glamorgan Artillery Volunteers, together with a large number of ladies, in all about 180, were again entertained at the annual ball held through the kindness of the esteemed command- ing officer of the company, Captain J. J. Hand- cock, on Friday evening last, at the Public Hall, Cadoxton. The affair was a brilliant success, promoted in a great measure by the energy and skill displayed by Sergeant-Major Atkins, R.A., of the 11th Company, who superintended the entire arrangements, praise also being due to other mem- bers for their valuable assistance. The dancing room was complete with artistic decorations composed of armoury, Indian trophies (lent by Sergeant-Major Atkins), flags, mottoes, ever- greens, &c. the floor was in excellent con- dition, and Sergeant-Major Atkins, Sergeant-Major Wakeham, and Quarter-master-sergeant Dykes were complimented upon their decorative abilities. The mottoev were as follow Long live our Queen," -1 Success to Colonel Hill, X.C.B., M.P., Colonel H. O. Fisher, and the Officers of the 2nd Glamorgan Artillery," Health to Captain Hand- cock," Welcome to all," and Success to the 11th Company." The officers present were-Captain Eyre, R.A., Adjutant; Major Thomas, Penarth Captain Handcock Captain Stallybrass, Bridgend Lieutenants Vivian. Tweedy, and Bradley, Cardiff. Non commissioned officers — Sergeant Major Atwill, R.A., Cardiff; Sergeant-Major Atkins, R.A., Cadoxton Quarter-master-sergeant Wil- kins, Cardiff Sergeant Major Wakeham, Cadoxton Sergeant-Major Carty, Armourer- sergeant Gould, Quarter master sergeant Dykes, and Sergeants Lewis, Meazey, Holland, Whitburn, OBrien, and H. De Boer (medi- cal staff). Amongst others present were Mr Shepherd (Penarth), Mr Wallace W. Davies, Mr R. Pardoe, Mrs and Miss Atwill, Mrs Atkins, Mrs Wakeham, Mrs Wilkins, Mrs Dykes, Mrs Marsh, Miss Hedges (Cardiff), Miss Richards, Misses Burbidge, Misses Pearce, Misses Griffiths, Misses Bilson, Miss Wil- liams, Miss Macdonald, Miss Frost, Miss Sydenham, See. Captain Handcock led off with Mrs Wakeham, the company joining in the many dances with much vigour and appreciation until the dawn of the following day, and during the proceedings the scarlet of the uniforms of officers and men inter- mingling with the colours of the ladies' dresses produced a very pretty effect. Sergeant Holland filled the position of M.C. to the satis- faction of all, and Messrs Johnston and Roberts' Band, of Cardiff, rendered pleasant dance music. Mrs Lewis, Shaftesbury Hotel, catered very satisfactorily. In the sergeants' and privates' rooms Quartermaster-sergeant Dykes and Corporal Ellis respectively attended to every want with assiduity, and under the care of Sergeant-major Atkins the proceedings from beginning to end passed off to a nicety, and without the slightest hitch, no pains being spared to promote the comfort and enjoyment of all present.
INTERESTING TO BARRY DOCK ROMAN CATHOLIC SCHOOL. Apropos of the recent application to the Educa- tional Department for the recognition of the Roman Catholic School, at Barry Dock, as a public elementary school, it may be stated that the Catholic Archbishop and the Bishops of the Province of Westminster at their last annual meeting in Low Week discussed the important question of the position of Catholics in this country in respect to matters concerning public elementary education, and unanimously adopted a series of resolutions enforcing the principle that Catholic public elementary schools satisfying the demands of the Education Department have a tight to as full a share of public money, whether from the rates or from the taxes, as any other elementary schools, and that it is unjust to deprive them of it because of the religious instruction required by the parents that the State ought to observe a consistent and strict impartiality in respect to religious education, whether given in voluntary or in board schools that com- pulsory State education is an intolerable tyranny unless due regard be paid by the State to the education of the children in their own religion, and that it is of urgent moment to abolish the unjust anomaly whereby the Legislature has placed the schools used by the majority in a position of glaring financial inferiority to the schools used by the minority of the population, the standard of in- struction being the same in both. The resolutions further assert the j u?t claim of Catholics to a full share of the public money raised for the purposes of public elementary education, and finally, the bishops express their determination to promote legislative measures for the protection of her Majesty's Roman Catholic subjects in the con- scientious discharge of their parental duties under the present system of compulsory education. A committee has accordingly been appointed, under the presidency of the Cardinal Archbishop, to con- sider the draft of a Bill, which may be presented to Parliament at the fitting time.
COUNTY COUNCIL AND THE BARRY COMPANY. OPPOSITION TO THE EAST GLAMORGAN BILL. The Glamorganshire County Council will appear in opposition to the East Glamorgan Railway Bill when it comes for consideration before the select committee of the House of Commons to which it is referred. The petition upon which the county council will base their opposition, after reciting that the county council represents large agricul- tural. manufacturing, and trading interests in the county, states that no passenger trains are run on the main line of the Barry Railway, which is a great inconvenience. The railways proposed by the Bill are practically extensions of the Barry Railway, and it appears from the Bill not to be intended to run passenger trains on those exten- sions. Rates and fares for the conveyance of passengers are prescribed in clause 44, but these, they allege, are only misleading, for, on referring to clause 36, it appears to be intended that the deposit money may be re-paid on the opening of the railway for public traffic, whereas the standing orders of Parliament provide that the deposit shall only be re-paid on the opening of the railway for the public conveyance of passengers. They, therefore, contend that no public railway, with power to take land compulsorily, should be sanctioned by Parliament, unless on condition that they are adapted at the outset as regards stations, platforms, and otherwise, for the public conveyance of passengers, as is no doubt intended by the standing orders, and that the deposit should not be re-paid until passenger trains are run at reasonable hours and reasonable fares.

THE FRAUDULENT PENARTH "CAPTAIN" AGAIN REMANDED. At Penarth Police Court on Monday last— before Mr Llewellen Wood and Mr Gibbs-George Albert Adams, alias" Captain Hall," a man of ship's officer appearance, and who is wanted by the police in several seaport towns in the country on similar accounts, was again placed in the dock on two charges of fraud by obtaining goods by false pretences from Mr Jack James, Ship Hotel, Penarth, and Mr H. J. Aubrey, chemist, Penarth. The evidence of Police-constable Hill, Barry, who smartly captured the accused, was read over, and the prisoner was again remanded for a week, so that inquiries might he made as to whether Adams bad any connection with the muampship Buteshire.
REVIEW OF PUBLICATIONS. GREAT THOUGHTS." The monthly part of the popular Great Thoughts has reached us, and on perusal we find its excel- lence of character and constitution has been fully maintained. A capital coloured plate, entitled Sisterly Sympathy," is included in the current issue, and the whole contents are selected with evident great thought to interest and instruct. Great Thoughts equals kindred periodicals in every point, and is truly entitled to the high position it at present holds in English literature.

Conan Doyle, the celebrated writer, and we are sure the contributions will be read with great interest, equal to that attending Dr Conan Doyle's Adventures of Sherlock Holmes."

Undoubtedly one of the most valuable periodicals published by Messrs Cassell and Company, Lon- don, is Work, and its worth to mechanics and others cannot be over-estimated. In addition to the ordinary contents, the latest monthly part contains an instructive wood and wood-working supplement by Paul N. Haslock.

Hall, Great Thoughts Office, 28 to 32, Hutton-street, Fleet-street, London.

Mothers and daughters should regularly purchase this paper dedicated to them, being an useful and instructive periodical for the home. AMERICA." "America, a Gweledigaethau Bywyd," by Mr William D. Davies, of Scranton, Pa., author of The Paths of Life (Llwybrau Bywyd); price 2s 6d, published by Mr Joseph Williams, Tyst a'r Dydd Office, Merthyr Tydfil. The author has, no doubt, succeeded in placing within reach of the Welsh-reading public one of the most modern, comprehensive, and best works on America which has issued from the Press for some years. Mr Davies (who is a brother to Mr J. D. Davies, of Holton-road. Barry Dock) has been resident in the New World for over a quarter of a century, and during that period has enjoyed exceptional advantages and facilities for obtaining informa- tion which his readers are now enjoying the full benefit of in fact, the author claims, after his lengthy experience as representative of the Drych in America, and his extensive travels through the continent, te be one of the best-known residents of America. The work, which is elaborately compiled and well got up, deals with the subject of America from various points of view, showing the remarkable growth of population and wealth of the country, and the unique position it occupies at the present time amongst the nations of the world. The United States of America four years ago possessed an area of 2,634,500 square miles, with a population of 61,908,906. We cannot, however, persuade our- selves to agree with Mr Davies that there are superior mechanics in the United States to those in any other country, nor that the manufactures of those provinces are better than those of neighbour- ing countries. Having become, to a great extent, a naturalised American, Mr Davies has evidently thus allowed his enthusiasm to lead him somewhat astray. Dealing with the subject in political, social, industrial, and religious aspects, the volume is one which should be carefully perused by all who feel an interest in that remarkably progressive continent discovered more than five centuries ago by the famous Columbus. More particularly should the work prove of service to those who contemplate emigrating to America, for, con- sidering the fact that there are probably M many Welsh people in America as there are in the old country itself, Mr Davies has exercised special paini-and, we believe, most successfully-to give in interesting detail the history and movements of the most notable Welshmen in their adopted home in the Far West. The second part of the volume gives an epitome of the works of the author both in poetry and prose and an interesting description appears of the World's Great Fair at Chicago last year, more particularly the Welsh festivals in connection t here- with, together with a racy account of Mr Davies' journeys from New York to Baltimore, Washing- ton, Philadelphia, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, California, Oregon. Montana, Minneapolis. Ne- braska, Illinois, and the principal parts of Penn- sylvania, extending over a period of more than three years. FOOTBALL THE RUGBY UNION GAME." Part 8 of Football: The Rugby Union Game to hand, and now that the football season has come to an end, enthusiasts of the game cannot do better than peruse the monthly publication named above, which is published at sixpence, and edited by the Rev F. Marshall. In the latest issue is a continua- tion of the interesting article on Metropolitan Football," in the course of which there has appeared excellent portraits of players, supporters of the game, and scenes from different matches in connection with Metropolitan football. In the current number commences another entertaining and instructive contributien on County Foot- ball," the remarks of the writer being of special interest, and several full-page portraits are given of different county teams, and a record of matches played. A better periodical devoted entirely to football cannot very easily be obtained, and should be very popular amongst the members of the different clubs wherever the game is played.- Published by Messrs Cassell and Co., Limited, La Belle Sauvage, London, E.C. "HELPING WORDS." Helping Words is an acceptable little volume of first-class reading, published by A. W. Hall, Great IVioughts office, 28 to 32, Hutton-street, London, E.C. Helping Words is a periodical which will accomplish all that its title implies, and is a valuable addition to Christian house- holds. The current number contains, amongst other articles the continuation of the interesting story by C. E. C. Weigall, entitled The doctor's household," Advice of a successful man," Manners at home," A voice from the land of diamonds," Mother's page, Lessons from Nature," Young Folk's page, "Helping words for every day," The flower party," Miss M. Woods," &c. Helping Words is issued monthly, price one penny. price one penny. "Y GENINEN." Of special interest to the Barry district is the opening contribution in Y Geninen for April, com- prising an article on Roger Williams, Ynya Rhode ai Cvmro oedd ?" by Mr W. Llewelyn Williams, B.A., of Swansea, and late editor of the South Wales Star, Cadoxton-Barry. Pedr Hir is the author of an instructive paper on Y Cymry yn Genedl," read before the Rhondda Cymmro- dorion Society last year. Y Parch. Thomas Aubrey" is the subject of an address by Cynfaen and Eos Llechyd renders good service to the cause of congregational worship with his masterly article on Ii Lie a dylanwad cerddoriaeth yn yr Addoliad Cyhoeddus." R. LI. O.'s Llythyrau ar Athroniaeth are valuable and Michael D. Jones is particularly happy in Cymru fu, a Chymru fydd," showing the strides made by Wales in politics, education, and religion. The continuation of Y Diwygiad Methodistaidd," by "Goleufryn," is given; and Tremwyllt's open letters are as interesting as ever. Cwm Rhondda," by M. O. Jones. Treherbert, is full of information for thousands; and the selections from Pedrog, Ellis Wyn o Wyrfai, Hwfa Mon, Clwydfardd, Gwilym Eryri, Cynddelw, Ceiriog, &c., lend richness and embellishment to the whole. Y Geninen, sixpence monthly, published by W. Gwenlyn Evans, Carnarvon.
THE BARRY BILLS IN t PARLIAMENT. SOME INTERESTING COMMENTS. The committee-room corridors of both Houses of Parliament are just now alive with old familiar faces from South Wales. Several Welsh Bills have been dragging their weary length along in adjoining committee-rooms, one of the measures at any rate being pushed forward in the identical character in which the great Barry Dock Bill, after its varying fortunes, finally became law, amidst a scene of excitement enly equalled by that which was witnessed when the Manchester Ship Canal Bill received the imprimatur of Parliament. Barry Luck used to be a common phrase in the committee, but this time the enterprising men who some years ago came forward and rescued Cardiff from a great monopoly have not had it altogether their own way. The coveted line between Hafod and Porth has been lost, but I have reason to know that it is not dead. Sooner or later the project will rise again, in spite of all the Taff may do to keep it down with such alluring bait as an offer of running powers for passengers to Havod. The opposition of the pilots and smack owners to that part of the Omnibus Bill which proposes to connect Barry Island with the main line was resumed on Wednesday. The effect of the evidence on behalf of this interest may be summed up in a few words, for it consists in this, that the proposed new line will destroy Barry as a harbour of refuge. An interesting feature of the opposition of the small craft owners was the class of witness called in support of it. The brawny, sun-burnt pilot, in his jersey and peaked cap, looked around him in wonder as he entered the gilded chamber with its crimsoned upholstery. But he was by no means abashed, thanks, in a large measure, to the persuasive manner in which Mr L. M. Richards led the evidence. A conspicuous witness in the Barry Dock inquiry was the eminent authority, Vice-Admiral Sir George Nares, who was not required to go into the witness-box, bat gave his evidence while sitting at the Peers' table. There can be no doubt that the testimony of Sir George had considerable weight with the committee, a circumstance of which Mr Pember, Q.C., appeared fully aware when he replied on behalf of the promoters. It was somewhat novel at the outset to see this eminent counsel, who on so many previous occasions has carried the Barry Company to victory, arrayed on the side of its enemies. However, it was an Omnibus Bill, and he would, of course, have to accept the first brief which came along. In the end he returned to his first love, for even Parliamentary barristers are human, and again fought as good a fight for Barry as circumstances permitted. The committee show by their decision that they are fully alive to the importance of Barry as a harbour of refuge, whatever may be said to its detriment in that respect. Thus the embankment is to be con- structed as far up the harbour as the limits of de- viation will allow, and as to the breakwater, the Board of Trade are to have a word to say as to how and where it is to be made. In a case like this a great deal depends upon the clauses they become as important as the preamble, and the probability is that when the clause giving effect to the com- mittee's decision is brought up later on it will be very closely scrutinised, though, of course, those interests which intend to carry their opposition further will not take part in the adjustment of details. Barry being over, there was a little transformation scene. A few strings were pulled, and the expansive and highly-embellished maps showing Barry and its adjuncts in all their flourishing prosperity gave way to the pictorial plans of her great rival, the Bute Docks, which all the time had been quietly awaiting their turn.

BARRY DISTRICT TRADES' AND LABOUR COUNCIL. The fortnightly meeting of the Barry District Trades' and Labour Council was held at the Victoria Hotel, Barry Dock, on Friday evening last, present—Messrs T. S. Thomas (president), in the chair, and Fred Walls (vice-president), Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and Joiners A. Brown, National Society of Operative Plasterers; Ivor LI. Thomas, Typographical Association W. Harper and J. Wheaton, National Amalgamated Labourers' Union; M. Shepherd (provisional) and A. Williams (provisional), Amalgamated Society of Railway Servants J.

Fookes (assistant secretary), Operative Stone Masons' Society and J. Rees, labour representative on the School and Burial Boards. RESIGNATION OP THE SECRETARY. Mr W. P. Clark, of the Typographical Associa- tion, tendered his resignation as secretary of the Council, and on the motion of Mr W. Harper, seconded by Mr J. Wheaton, the same was accepted, with expressions of regret. As the annual meeting of the Council would be held shortly, and the labour demonstration took place on May 7th, it was considered unwise to appoint a new secretary at present, and on the proposition of Mr J. H. Jose, seconded by Mr Wheaton, it was resolved to ask Mr Clark to remain in office until after the two events named had taken place.—Messrs Ivor LI. Thomas and H. S. Rendel were selected to audit the secretary's books, and Mr Fookes acted as secretary pro tern, during the remainder of the meeting, Mr Clark being absent. FURTHER ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE LABOUR DEMONSTRATION. In connection with the labour demonstration to be held under the auspices of the Council on May 7th, the following communication was read from Mr J. Keir Hardie, M.P., in reply to an invitation from the Council to attend the same:—" It so happens that the Whit-week holidays come in the second week in May, and I am anxious to spend them at home. If your demonstration could be held at a time when Parliament is sitting, I would certainly endeavour to make it convenient to attend, especially if it were on a Wednesday.It was agreed to ask the secretary to write Mr Keir Hardie giving the necessary information. — A letter was read from the Barry Male Voice Party stating that, owing to the pressure upon them by rehearsals, concerts, &c., in connection with their visit to Caerphilly Eisteddfod on Whit-Monday, the Party would be unable to accept the invitation from the Council to attend the labour demonstra- tion.-The Secretary wrote stating he had booked the Iddesleigh Hall, Cadoxton, for the public meeting.—It was decided to accept the tender of Mr E. Williams, Victoria Hotel, for a knife and fork tea at Is 6d per head on the demonstration day.—It was also resolved that the eonference in the afternoon be attended by members of the Council and provisional delegates, each being allowed to take a friend and it was further decided to admit the Press to the conference, on the motion of Mr A. Williams, seconded by Mr Ivor LI. Thomas.—Mr Harper moved that Mr Tom Davies, general secretary of the National Amalgamated Labourers' Union, be asked to attend at the demonstration, and it was agreed to. -Other arrangements were considered.
THE SOCIAL EVIL AT BARRY DOCK. On Monday last, at Penarth Police-court—before Messrs LI. Wood and Gibbs-Elizabeth Hall, of Gueret-street, Barry Dock, who was described by Acting-sergeant Herbert Evans as being a notorious prostitute and a desperately bad character, was sent to prison for three weeks, with hard labour, on two charges of drunkenness, with disorderly conduct, and obstructing the thorough- fare in Thompson-street, Barry Dock. The woman was as usual brought up under a warrant.
