IS THE GROWTH OF BARRY TOWN…
IS THE GROWTH OF BARRY TOWN A HEALTHY ONE ? THE announcement published by us last week of the intention of the Barry Railway Com- pany to proceed with the construction of their new dock will undoubtedly have the effect of giving a material additional impulse to the building trades in the district. Whether this is a desirable effect of the enterprise of the company we do not know. It is, however, unquestionable that there are at present many scores of vacant houses 'within the township of Barry, many of which have never been occupied; and it is equally evident that the number of shops already erected is large enough to accommodate the wants of a population nearly twice the magnitude of that which already exists. Speculators and money-lenders, should, therefore, be carefully on their guard for some time to come not to create a repetition of the folly which was committed about two years ago of permitting the inundation of the district with building property which, being in greater part un- occupied, has never proved productive to investors nor remunerative to the local rates. In offering a word of caution in this way we are confident our motives will not be misinter- preted. We have all along entertained the utmost confidence in the continued growth and prosperity of Barry, but as we have indicated there is the serious danger of over-produc- tion of building property overhanging and threatening what should otherwise prove the 0 healthy growth of the thriving community of which the Barry Docks are the centre. BARRY INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL. THE contract for the erection of an Inter- mediate School for the Barry district has at last been signed, and the work will be commenced as soon as the contractor, Mr H. J. Money, has received instructions from the ) architect. The work which the local com- mittee have had to accomplish in order to arrive at this satisfactory issue has not been altogether plain-sailing. In almost every other instance throughout the county sites for the erection of intermediate schools have been presented by different generous land- owners, but at Barry the land has had to be bought and paid for before arrangements for the construction of the building could be concluded with the county authorities. Not- withstanding this, however, no time has been lost by the Barry committee, and the contract for the building has become an established fact, even in advance of several places in Glamorganshire where similar difficulties had not to be encountered. This speaks well of the business capacity and determination of the Barry local committee, and we hope that the next step which is to be taken will be equally successful, that of securing the services of the Right Hon. Lord Windsor to perform the ceremony of laying the founda- tion stone of the important structure. The success of the Intermediate School for Barry is already practically assured, for the strides which education has made in the district during the past few years has been remark- able, and by way of promise of the nucleus of a scholarship system we are glad to remind our readers that Mr Edward Davies, J.P., the managing director of the Barry Railway Company, has expressed his intention of giving the handsome donation of £ 1,000 for the establishwent of scholarships in connec- tion with the school, as a memorial to his late lamented father, Mr David Davies, M.P., the deputy-chairman of the company, and one of the principal founders of Barry Docks. The valuable services rendered to the movement since its inception, more than two years ago, by the honorary secretary, Mr J. Arthur Hughes, are also entitled to the unqualified appreciation of the public generally, and it must be satisfactory to that gentleman to know that his efforts, in common with those of the members of the committee—performed frequently under very discouraging circum- stances-are now within measurable distance of complete accomplishment, and the local public and others interested in the welfare of Barry cannot testify their sense of apprecia- tion of the services so philanthropically given than by subscribing liberally to the building and establishment funds, which, so far, are not in any way complete.
THE TRAOK OF BARRY DOCK:!…
THE TRAOK OF BARRY DOCK:! IX COMPARISON WITH NEIGHBOURING PORTS. A comparison of the average weekly trade done at. the Barry Docks with thot of other coil ports along the Bristol Channel may not be uninterest- ing reading matter to many of our readers. During last week the trade of Cardiff, it is stated, maintained the average," whatever that may mean. At Barry Docks the coal shipments alone exceeded 127,000 tons at Swansea over 50,000 tons while the trade at Newport registered scarcely 20,000. At Penarth the coal traffic yielded a total of nearly 40,000 tons. BARRY LOCAL BOARD AND THE REGULATION OF SEAMEN'S BOARDING-HOUSES. The Barry and Cadoxton Local Board, acting as Port Sanitary Authority, is the first public body in the entire kingdom to carry into actual practice the Board of Trade bye-laws for the regulation of seamen's boarding-houses, and now that the example has been so worthily set, other authorities in the country-including Cardiff as the only Welsh port so far—follow- ing the advice of the Government authorities, have resolved upon adopting similar measures. These regulations, which are based upon the Merchant Shipping Acts of 1854 and 1883, provide for, amongst other objects, the licensing of seamen's lodging-houses, the inspection and sanitary condition of the same, the prohibition of unlicensed houses, and the exclusion from all licensed houses of persons of improper character. Persons not registered by the Sanitary Authority shall be liable upon con- viction to a penalty not exceeding f20. Anv person who has been convicted of disorderly conduct shall be prohibited from conducting a seaman's lodging-house for three years and amongst the classes of tradespeople who are restricted from conducting such establishments are holders of beer licenses, clothiers, outfitters, and slop dealers. Section 26 provides that X 0 proprietor of a seaman's lodging-house, nor any person managing the same, shall knowingly lodge or harbour any thief, or re- puted thief, or any prostitute or reputed prostitute and a register shall be kept of the name, age, and nationality of every lodger received into the house, with a complete des- cription of the ship with which he was last connected. These regulations are already in force at Barry, with the exception of the clauses- prohibiting unlicensed houses to exist in the district but as soon as the Order in Council, which has been applied for, has been received the Barry Port Sanitary Authority will be able to give full effect to the provisions of their new code, and, considering the desirable results, calculated to promote the well-being of the sea- faring community while in port, which must; necessarily ensue upon the general adoption of these bye-laws, we hope the authorities at such ports as Cardiff, Hull, &c., which have applied to the authorities at Barry for copies of the new bye-laws, will lose no time in following the pro- gressive example which has just been set by those representing the new port on the Bristol Channel.
