LOCAL AND GENERAL NOTES. It is gratifying to us to find that the sug- PROPOSED EXTENSION gestion made in these OF THE columns two or throe POSTAL DISTRICT OF weeks ago, to the effect BARRY. that steps should be taken by the Barry Chamber of Trade to secure the extension of the postal district of Barry, has already been taken up by that body, for at a meeting of the Chamber, held on Tuesday evening last at Harry's Restaurant, Barry Docks, under the chairmanship of Mr E. S. Johnson, a resolution was unanimously passed approving of the Chamber taking steps to secure the proposed extension in the direction of the Vale of Glamorgan. With the view, therefore, of securing the inclusion of Pen- mark, Llancarfan, Moulton, Aberthaw, &c., as sub-offices to Barry, it is understood that I meetings for the furtherance of the object will be convened in the places nanaed on early dates. Following immedi- ately upon our re- THE LICENSING OF marks last week on BOARDING-HOUSES AT this subject, the London BARRY. Gazette of Friday last contained anannounce- ment that the Queen had granted an Order in Council approving of the bye-laws submitted by the Port Sanitary Authority for the licensing and regulation of seamen's boarding-houses in the district. Xh$ 1 bye-laws, therefore, are how in Complete operation, and the local authority, so far from allowing any time to be lust in the matter, has already appointed a committee to assume jurisdiction and to see that the laws affecting so important a phase of local public life are carried out in a proper manner, thus conferring an unmeasured boon, not only upon the rank and file of the seafaring community themselves, but upon the well-being of the population in general. I Several letters have I reached us during THE LATE BARRY the past few weeks DISTRICT STAR-BOWKETT from members of the BUILDING SOCIETY. late Barry Dock and District Star Bow kett Building So- ciety, in each case inquiring when the promised statement of accounts of the society may be expected to be published. Each member who has applied to the solicitor acting as liquidator has received his proportion of the proceeds, but there is a feeling that if some of the members have neglected to apply for their share, a balance-sheet should be prepared, and the remaining proceeds should be dealt with, so that the entire matter might be disposed of without further delay. We are sure the gentle- men interested in the society, when their attention is drawn thereto, will take the necessary steps to comply with the feeling thus expressed. On lines of morality, even the Rhondda, Aberdare, and SUNDAY TRADING Merthyr Valleys point an IN THE example to Barry. Speak- BARRY DISTRICT, ing the other day to a minister of the gospel and a police officer, both for years resident in the coal districts, we were assured that there is not a tithe of drinking going on in those thickly-populated parts of the county compared with that which disgraces the Barry district, by means of shebeening, every Sabbath, whereas the Sunday trading which is carried on by tobacconists, refreshment-house keepers, &c., at Barry is almost unknown amongst the colliers. Surely, the hands of the police authorities ought to be materially strengthened to crush out this evil from our midst. The appointment of inspector of bath- BATHING ANB PLEASURE- ing and pleasure BOATING IN boats at Whitmore WHITMORE BAY'. Bay (Barry Island) by the Local Board this week affords an earnest of the intention of the authorities to spare no effort towards making Barry, what it deserves to be, an attractive and popular water- ing-place. It remains for the public of the district, and the owner of the island in particular, to strengthen the hands of the authority, and provide facilities calculated to secure the desirable purposes in view. Mr William Thomas (of Vere street, Cadox- MISERABLE TACTICS OF ton), one of the mem- A BARRY bers of the Barry and LOCAL BOARD MEMBER. Cadoxton Local Board, seems to be utterly innocent of a know- ledge even of the most elementary princi- ples of behaviour in public life. Failing, therefore, the capacity .for fair argument and I logical reasoning, he never seems to miss an opportunity of descending to Whitechapeldom, I and hurls mean and irrelevant insinuations at I fellow members whenever" the delicate serenity of his imperial majesty is in the least dis- turbed. This is no common occurrence, but, happily, the Barry Local Board is composed mainly of a body of gentlemen who are, even on the most unsuspecting occasions, fully competent of dealing very effectually with the eccentricities which notoriously are Mr Thomas' prevailing weakness. We would not have descended to make any reference whatever to such conduct had it not been for the utterly unwarranted attack which he made upon our- selves at the last meeting of the Board with which he is connected. This member accused us of being tools in the hands of Mr Jewel Williams. Once and for all we give this miserable accusation a positive and unqualified denial. Mr Jewel Williams, Mr Thomas may be reminded, is a gentleman whose present connection with the Local Board is the result of the unanimous desire anc1 approval of that body, and in this and various other capacities in the district he possesses an unsullied reputa- tion for the strictest integrity and uprightness, and on no occasion whatever has Mr Williams -nor. other members of the Board-taken advantage ef their proprietorial connection with the Barry Dock Neics to make this organ an instrument whereby to serve their own ends in any conceivable form. We trust we are quite explicit, and the challenge having been thrown down Mr William Thomas is welcome -if he dares-to take it up. We would prefer treating Mr Thomas' contemptible conduct with the indifference it deserves, but we feel that the different charges of which, from time to time, he is the vaunted hero should not be allowed to go by without a protest and we are convinced that such undignified and uir gentlemanly behaviour on the part of a member of any public body must be resented, as it deserves, by every intelligent and self-respect- ing ratepayer in thp district,
CHURCH DEFENCE MEETING I AT BARRY. 1 RESOLUTION IN CONDEMNATION OF DISESTABLISHMENT. THE GOVERNMENT THOROUGHLY" ASHAMED OF THE MATTER. r A meeting of parishioners was held at the Church Hall, Barry, on Wednesday evening last, for the purpose of passing a resolution in con- demnation of the Bill for the Disestablishment and Disendowment of the Church in Wales. The chair was occupied by Mr E. S. Johnson (one of the churchwardens), and those present included the Rev Canon Allen, M-4 (rector), Rev J. Le Du Heaume, B.A. (curate), Messrs H. C. Griffin, E. Makepeace, C. A. Makepeace, R. J. George, &c. The Chairman, in opening, spoke of the impera- tive duty on the part of Churchpeople to resist the present attempt to rob the Church of her endow- ments and her inalienoble rights. (Cheers.) The Rev Canon Allen proposed the following resolutions :— -1 That this meeting regards the proposal to disestablish and disendow the Church in Wales as cruel, unjust, and mischievous, and as utterly incompetent to attain the end it has in view, that is to say, the casting down of the Church from its histuric position. Canon Allen supported his motion with a power- ful address, quoting in the course of his remarks the emphatic pronouncements on the question in a manifesto issued by the archbishops and bishops of England, with the exception of the Bishop of Worcester, who withheld his signature solely on the significant ground of belief that the present movement on the part of the Government was not seriously meant. The venerable Canon continued his address by pointing out the serious results of taking property away from God and applying it to the secular purposes of the nation." (Loud applause.) Mr H. C. Griffin Beconded, and having referred to the ancient title of the Church in the Principa- lity, he described the attempt made in the Bill to pro^titnte the uses of the cathedrals and tithes as cruel and unholy. (Cheers.) The motion was supported by Mr E. Makepeace, who said the Bill was only brought forward to gratify the whimsical and fanatical aspirations of agitators and place seekers. (Cheers.) Mr C. A. Makepeace also supported, remarking that the measure had as its object the handing of a bribe to the holders of an unprincipled Welsh vote in Parliament. (Cheers.) The Chairman having spoken of the progress made in Church work in the Barry district, the resolution was put to the meeting and carried unanimously, it being also decided to send a edpy of the same to the Home Secretary and other quarters. Canon Allen further observed that the great outcry raised by the Church people of Wales, and England as well, against the present iniquitous measure had considerably tamed down the enthusiasm of the Government, and those who were responsible for bringing it forward were getting thoroughly ashamed of themselves for their part in such an unholy attack. (Loud cheers.) A committee will be appointed to undertake an organised system of Church defence in the Barry district.

CATHOLICISM OR ROMAN CATHOLICISM. MR ROSS AGAIN REPLIES TO THE PRIEST." SIR,-Permit me to remark, anent your heading' "Catholicism or Roman Catholicism," that they are the same thing. Your correspondent need not imagine I regret entering on this discussion. I began it in conse- quence of his mis-statements against the Catholic Church, and I shall continue to tell the truth on these matters as long as you keep your columns open to me. The Huguenots did not suffer merely because they were sectaries, as he would make out, but brought on their own doom through the re- bellious and atrocious cruelties which I have shown they practised. I have replied one by one to the many side issues your correspondent has raised, but the main question in this controversy is whether no breach was made at the Reformation in Catholic unity, as he asserts, or whether, I assert, a new religion was set up. A Pope, St. Gregory the Great, founded the ancient Church of England; a Pope, St. Pius V., condemned the modern Church of England. It is an oft-exploded fable that any Pope ever offered to recognise it as part of the Catholic Church. As to your corres- pondent's statement that the Council of Trent. promulgated new articles of faith, the doctrines he mentions had been held for a thousand years throughout Catholic England previous to the Reformation. The Council only re-affirmed doctrines which had been called in question by heretics. There is a passage in Breen'a "Church of Old England" which I will quote. The author speaks of Elizabeth's accession, to a throne to which, as an illegitimate, she had no right, as the true heir was Mary Queen of Scots, and to Mary the English Datholics, who were three-fourths of the natiou, were inclined to turn, so Elizabeth looked to the Protestants for support. She found the Catholic hierarchy, which had been restored under her half-sister Mary I., in. possession, and she began to impose a new rule of faith, the 39 Articles, a new liturgy, the Book of Common Prayer, which were made compulsory by law, the liturgy of the Mass being forbidden under pain of fine and imprisonment. A new rite for consecrating bishops and ministers, devised by Cranmer according to his Calvinistic notions, was adopted, which had to be altered in 1662, because even from an Anglican point of view it was con- sidered insufficient to make a bishop. The supremacy over the Church was again transferred. from the Pope to the Crown by a Parliament packed for the purpose, the Act passing the Lords by a majority of three only, in spite of bribes and threats, all the bishops voting against it. On January 24th, 1559, the clergy in Convocation drew up an act of faith as a preliminary protest,. in which they declared the belief of the Catholic Church of England (1) in the real presence of Christ's body and blood in the eucharist, (2) tran- substantiation, (3) the sacrifice of the mass, (4)- the divinely-appointed supremacy of Peter and his successors over the Church, (5) that the authority to deal with matters of faith and discipline belonged to the rectors of the Church and not to laymen. On the 22nd March, Archbishop Heath spoke strongly against the Act of Supremacy, in the name of the whole episcopate. As all the bishops, except Kitchen, of Llandaff, refused to take the oath of supremacy, they were summoned before the Couneil, imprisoned and deposed by the civil power, with the heads of the clergy." With the deposition and imprisonment of the old English hierarchy, the old Church of England came to an end. Observe that several of tke points cited by the Catholic bishops as belonging to the faith of old England are precisely what your correspondent; cites as innovations of the Council of Trent. If Baptist ministers, for example, were now to be placed in the Church of England livings, Angli- cans would not consider themselves members of their flock, neither would Catholics under ^"iza- beth receive the new religion with its married ministers, so recourse was had to penal laws, fine, imprisonment, and death. These laws increased in severity till the climax was reached-in 1588, when an Act of Parliament made it high treason, that (|s, death, to be in England after having been made priest by Roman authority after the accession of the Queen. The same Act made it death for the laity to harbour a priest, but before 1586 it was death to have asked for or received absolution from a priest, and priests and laymen had been executed for denying the spiritual supremacy of the Queen. Despite all these cruelties, the old faith lives and grows in England, yet, not in the Church of Eng- land, but in the Catholic community here. The Church of England can only show broken and desecrated altar stones and holy water stoups, which witness how she destroyed the ancient faith. The Catholic Church in England can show the exact performance of the ancient rites, such as at the recent consecration of the Bishop of Clifton, where the ceremonies were the same as were once performed in every Cathedral in England. Your correspondent takes up my mention of Fisher and More. They most certainly died for the old faith, which proves the new is not the old. As to the attendance of Catholics, at first under Elizabeth, at her Church service, the Emperor Charles V. pleaded that Catholics might be allowed one Church in every city. Catholics meanwhile appealed to the Council of Trent, through the Cardinal of Toledo, to know if, to save the fines for non-attendance at the Protestant worship, they might be present. A negative answer was given by the committee appointed to, consider this question in 1568, not ten. but two years after Elizabeth's accession. This was under Pope Pius IX. St Pius V did not begin to reign till 1566, and died in 1572. In our own days, a. weak or ignorant Catholic has been known to attend the Church of England service, but that did not make the attendance a right action, or the Catholic into an Anglican, unless he formally apostalised.-I remain, faithfully yours, A. E. P. ROSS.
DARING BURGLARY AT BARRY DOCKS. Another burglary has been committed at the offices of Messrs Meggitt and Jones, timber and builders' merchants, Dock-side, Barry Docks. The eircumstance.s connected with the forcible entry were similar to those of the previous occasion* The office safe was carried some distance away, and vigorous efforts were mnde to force it open, but fortunately without avail. Other things in the office were carried off. The safe has since been restored, but up to the present no trace of the robbers has been discovered.
