ANNUAL MEETING OF THE BARRY TRADES' AND LABOUR COUNCIL. The annual meeting of the Barry Trades' and Labour Council was held on Friday evening last at the Victoria Hotel, Barry Dock, when the members present were:—Messrs T. S. Thomas (president), in the chair, and F. Walls (vice- president), Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and Joiners; T. J. Chamberlain and Ivor LI. Thomas (provisional), Typographical Association; J. Murray, Smiths' Hammermen's Society; T. Griffiths, Carriage and Wagon Builders' Society W. Copp and A. Brown, National Society of Operative Plasterers G. Motton, F. Da vies, and H. S. Rendell, Operative Stone Masons' Society W. Harper, W. Burns, and J. Dunn (provisional), National Amalgamated Labourers' Union J. Rees, M. Nicholas, M. Shepherd, J. McGill, and C. A. Makepeace, Amalgamated Society of Railway Servants and W. P. Clark. A COMMITTEE WILL INQUIRE. A good deal of time was spent upon a discussion as to an allegation by a retiring official that he was dismissed from his last employment in conse- quence of his connection with the Trades' Council. The charge was given a complete and unqualified denial by representatives present of the firm whose spirit of unionism was thus challenged, and, eventually, it was decided to delegate Messrs T. S. Thomas, J. Rees, and W. Harper as a committee to inquire into the matter, and report thereon at the next meeting. NO ANNUAL REPORT FORTHCOMING. In reply to a question, Mr W. P. Clark, the retiring secretary, said that inasmuch as his books and those of the treasurer had not been audited, the annual report of the work of the Council had not been prepared.-The President said he must be candid, and say that the secretary for some time had been simply playing with the Council, and he would strongly urge that the Council obtain possession of the books and funds forthwith.—Mr Chamberlain concurred with the president and the auditors (Messrs Rendell and Shepherd) having stated that they had received no notice to conduct the audit, a warm discussion ensued, and it was decided to take immediate steps to secure possession of the books and funds lying in the hands of the outgoing officials. THE CREDENTIALS OF NEW MEMBERS. The credentials of the members of the Council for the coming year were received as follows :— Amalgamated Society of Railway Servants-Messrs J. McGill, M. Shepherd, M. Nicholas, and J. Rees Typographical Association — Messrs T. J. Chamberlain and Ivor LI. Thomas (provisional) National Amalgamated Labourers' Union-Messrs W. Harper, J. Wheaton, W. Burns, and J. Dunn (provisional) Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and Joiners-Messrs T. S. Thomas and F. Walls Operative Stone Masons' Society—Messrs George Motton and Frank Davies National Association of Operative Plasterers-Messrs A. Brown and W. Copp (provisional)—Mr J. Murray and Mr T. Griffiths explained that they had not yet received their credentials, but would submit the same at the next meeting. ELECTION OF OFFICERS. The following officers were appointed for the coming twelve months:—President, Mr John Rees. the labour member of the Council on the School and Burial Boards vice-president. Mr W. Burns secretary, Mr T. S. Thomas, the retiring president; assistant secretary, Mr W. Harper treasurer, Mr J. McGill; trustees, Messrs G. Motton and M. Nicholas tyler, Mr A. Brown and executive, Messrs F. Walls, J. Murray, F. Davies, M. Shepherd, and T. J. Chamberlain. INVITATION TO THE SHIPWRIGHTS. It was resolved that the secretary write to the local branch of the Shipwrights' Society inviting them to become affiliated with the Council. LABOUR POLITICAL ORGANISATION. Mr T. S. Thomas submitted circulars he had received from the Labour Electoral Association inviting the Council to become affiliated therewith, and also asking that two delegates be sent from the Council to attend the congress of the Associa- tion, to be held at Bradford.—Mr Fi-ed Walls did not consider the Council could t.ike up an inde- pendent position so long as members identified themselves with the Liberal Hundred.—The Presi- dent said the Council could not govern the conduct of individual members.—Mr Nicholas suggested that the advice of the branches should be t.iken with respect to the invitation received.—Mr Walls stated he also had received circulars from the Independent Labour Party, but had forgotten to bring them to the meeting that evening.— Mr Rees felt this was a matter which could not be re- ferred to the lodges until the Council had first con- sidered the conteuts of the circular.—Mr Harper thought it was very desirable that labour should be thoroughly organised, so that they might be able to send representatives to the Imperial Parliament and the various local public bodies.- It was resolved to send copies of both circulars to the different societies in the district affiliated with the Council. A IF POvnrvTT A C AW xrj?\tDVVQ "1 Mr C. A. Makepeace, president of the Barry Branch of the Railway Servants' Society, in the course of a. lengthy address (which we comment upon in our editorial columns this week), brought forward a serions allegation affecting the constitu- tion of the Council, and stated that bogus repre- sentatives of his society had been sent to the Council by means of letters written by the secre- tary (Mr M. Shepherd) without the knowledge or consent of the branch. One of the members thus introduced into the Council bad since been elected upon the Burial Board, and he considered that such a rotten state of thinsrs was one which the Council should take seriously into consideration. otherwise they would be treated with contempt by the public at large. Mr Makepeace added that this condition of things had been going on in connection with his society for sometime. Such dealings as these were rotten to the core, and should not be tolerated at all by a respectable body of working- men. The matter had been before his branch at the last meeting, and the secretary admitted the truth of the allegation he (Mr Makepeace) was then making and he might state that owing to such a disreputable state of affairs he had repeatedly declined to allow his name to be put forward as a delegate to the Trades' Council.— Mr W. P. Clark replied that the fault possibly lay upon himself, for he undertook the responsi- bility of requesting Mr Shepherd sometime ago to see that the names of delegates were sent to the Council from the Rail way men's Society so that they might be directly represented on the Burial Board.—The President strongly protested against the remarks made by Mr Makepeace, and said the question should first of all have been thrashed out by the society before it was made public property in this manner by bringing it before the Trades' Council.—Mr Makepeace repeated that it had already been discussed by the society, and it would again be brought forward at the next meeting.—Mr Frank Davies agreed with the president that Mr Makepeace was entirely out of place in raising the subject at the Council meeting. He also felt indignant that reflections had been cast upon members of the Council by allegations that they had been elected by means of bogus credentials and he would suggest that the matter be allowed to drop until the Council heard officially thereon from the Society.—Mr Nicholas denied that he had been in collusion with any two or three members of the Railwaymen's Society in order to secure his election as member of the burial board, and he was prepared, if it could be proved that he had been in collusion in this way, to hand over a donation of £ ."> to the Nursing Association. He would also state that Mr Make- peace himself had received one of these bogus credentials, and would have attended a certain meeting if he had been able to. The reason why Mr Makepeace had brought this matter forward was because of his meanness, narrow-mindedness, bigotry, and spleen, and if he (Mr Nicholas) had done anything wrong he was willing to resign his seat on the Burial Board.—Mr Harper suggested that the Council should proceed with the next business.—Mr Makepeace, however, rose to reply to Mr Nicholas, but the president declined to hear him, and said they had heard quite sufficient wrangling that subject—After a few further remarks, tho cssoussiou was Cloned to drop. LABOUR REPRESENTATIOX ON THE NURSING ASSOCIATION. Mr Ivor Thom:>3 said that inasmuch as he was now only a provisional delegate he was quite prepared to resign his seat as representative of the Council on the Nursing Association in order to make room for another member.—The matter was deferred till the next meeting. This was all the public business.
IMPORTANT ANNEXATION OF AREA TO THE BARRY DISTRICT. PUBLIC INQUIRY AT CARDIFF. A public inquiry was held at the Union Work- house, Cardiff, on Saturday last into proposals made for the undermentioned alterations of parishes and places in the Cardiff Union and Rural Sanitary District:— | 1. That the area known as Sheeping Moors, situate between and reputed to form part of the parishes of Cadoxton and St. Andrews, be united to the parish of Cadoxton-juxta-Barry. 2. That Barry Island in the parish of Sully be united with the parish of Barry. 3. That the residue of the parish of Sully within the district of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board be united with the parish of Cadoxton. 4. That the parish or extra Parochial place Highlight be united for all civil purposes with the parish of Wenvoe. The inquiry was held by County Councillor John Blandy Jenkins, J.P., appointed by the Glamorgan County Council, and the following persons interested attended:—Messrs J. Arthur Hughes, solicitor, representing the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board; W. H. Lewis, for the Barry (U.D.) School Board W. Thomas, guardian for Sully and Lavernock parishes W. Lougher, overseer of Wenvoe parish E. F. Blackmore, assistant overseer of Barry parish T. Mansel Franklen, clerk to the County Council; A. J. Harris, clerk to the Cardiff Union Board of Guardians: and Miss Jenner, The Typica, Wenvoe. Mr Franklen read the notice conven- ing the inquiry which had been posted in accord- ance with the requirements of the Local Govern- ment Board in the districts concerned. Proposal No. 1 was then taken into considera- tion, Mr Franklen stating that the proposal came to the County Council from the Board of Guardians. -Mr J. Arthur Hughes stated his Board heartily approved of the proposal.—The Chairman Does this alter the Local Board area?—Mr Hughes replied in the negative.—There was, therefore, no opposition to this proposal. Proposals No. 3 and 4 were next taken. Mr Harris describing the same as satisfactory, Barry Island especially being appropriate for addition to Barry. There was one guardian for Lavernock and Sully, and if a small portion of the latter parish was transferred to the parishes of Barry and Cadoxton care should be taken that the area of representation was defined.-The Chairman Is Barry Island in the Barry Local Board district?— Mr Harris replied in the aiffrmative.—MrFranklen: These proposals do not affect the Local Board area in any way, only with regard to parish.— The Chairman I take it that the guardians agree with the proposals ?—No objectiuü" were raised.—Mr Harris Some day it will be oetet to form one parish of the Local Board area of Barry.—Mr Franklen One set of offices in the Local Board district seems to me an admirable reform.—Mr W. H. Lewis, representing the Barry School Board, remarked his Board approved of the proposals.—Mr J. A. Hughes also stated his Board were in favour of the annexation, adding that the Barry Burial Board, of which he was clerk, had likewise expressed approval of the re- arrangement.—The Chairman In proposals two and three ?—Mr Hughes Yes, sir. With regard to proposal No. 4, Mr Franklen stated one Catherine Morgan, Highlight, did not j apDrove of the change.—The Chairman asked if anyone appeared on behalf of Catherine Morgan, but received a reply in the negative.—Mr Harris said it had been felt for some time past that Highlight should be united with Wenvoe, or some other parish, for the purposes of full representa- tion. It had not had a guardian of its own for some time.—In reply to the chairman, Mr Frank- len said that the guardians agreed with the scheme. Miss Jenner, who had just entered the room, said she had seen the notice calling the meeting in the Church porch at Wenvoe, stating the inquiry would commence at half-past nine. She had arrived at the workhouse at twenty minutes w ten, and had been looking for the room up till then. (Laughter.) There was, she thought.no one else there from Wenvoe, but she could not see very well. Miss Jenner then remarked she noticed Mr Lougher, the overseer of Wenvoe, v.as present, and afterwards said she had had to walk six miles to get there. (Continued laughter.) With regard to the Sheeping Moors, the whole of that land was included in the Wenvoe Castle estate, which was in Chancery, and in connection with that estate she was a heavy claimant. She wished to know whether the arrangement would make any difference with regard to the estate if she could produce the family deeds that the moors were in the parish of St. Andrew's.—The Chairman did not think it would affect the estate in the least. Miss Jenner would be able to explain why the Sheep- ing Moors happened to be in the parish of Cadox- ton.-Miss Jenner then asked if the annexation of Highlight to Wenvoe would affect the rates of the latter parish, as Wenvoe was already a very forlorn sort of place. (Laughter.)—The Chairman replied he did not think it would affect the rates. —Miss Jenner (continuing): Why was this un- earthly hour arranged for holding the meeting? (Laughter.)—The Chairman: This work has got to be completed by a certain time, as another inquiry is following :—Mr Jenner Of course, sir. In connection with the Glamorgan County Council (Miss Jenner continued) we have not been un- accustomed to the name of Mr T. Mansel Franklen, and the name is a surety for the notice of the meeting being correct; but I would suggest that the notices be posted If ur on the walls, so that I shall not have to climb up in future to read the bottom part of them. (Laughter.) I have not, I think, walked 8;( irilos to do no business. (Con- tinued laughter.) — Mr Franklen: When the Church is disestablished the councils will have the authority to look after those things. (Laughter.) -After asking a question with regard to Barry Island, and having been told that the alteration would nob injure her interests in that direction, Miss Jenner gracefully retired, and the inquiry concluded.
BARRY DOCK STEAM LAUNDRY COMPANY. On Tuesday last a meeting of the creditors of the Barry Dock Sanitary Steam Laundry'Com- pany (Limited) was held at the Official Receiver's office at Cardiff.—The statement of affairs showed that the company was formed in 1890 for the purpose of establishing a steam laundry for the Barry district. The nominal capital of the com- pany was £ 4,000, divided into 4,000 shares of £1 each. The company commenced working without capital, and when not in a position to meet its liabilities, and afterwards incurred liabilities amounting to £ 1.010 10s.—As the number of creditors present did not constitute a quorum, the meeting was adjourned for a week without any resolution being passed. The Official Receiver remains trustee.

ODDFELLOWSHIP AT DINAS POWIS. ANNIVERSARY OF THE DINAS POWIS CASTLE LODGE. The anniversary of the Dinas Powis Castle Lodge of the Manchester Unity of Oddfellows, No. 2,532, was held on Monday last, and notwithstanding tke inclemency of the weather the proceedings were attended with conspicuous success. The Dinas Powis Castle Lodge numbers upwards of ninety members, the majority of whom participated in the demonstration. The funds of the lodge are in a satisfactory condition, the nett balance at the close of last year being about £472. In the morn- ing, the members formed themselves into a pro- cession, headed by the Cardiff Post Office Band (Cathays branch), and the following places were visited :—St. Andrew's Rectory, Westra, Bryn- eithyn. The Mount, Eastbrook, &c., the most cordial welcome being accorded the brethren at the different places called at. Returning to the Cross Keys Inn (the headquarters of the lodge) about three o'clock, the members sat down to a capital dinner, provided in first-class style by the respected host and hostess, Mr W. Barnett and Mrs Barnett, the com- pany thoroughly enjoying the capital repast. The chair was occupied by the Rev Canon Edwards, rector of the parish, and the vice-chair by Major- General H. H. Lee, R.E., J.P., one of the honorary members of the lodge, and amongst those present were the officers of the lodge, including Messrs W. Rees, N.G., J. Collins, V.G., J. Edwards, G.M., Francis John (secretary), and Thomas John (treasurer), as well as Messrs J. B. Mockford, W. Francis, J. Howell, T. Greatrex. E. Greatrex, E. Garmond T. Thomas, W. Powell, &c. After dinner, the Chairman, in submitting the toast of the Queen and Royal Family." said the beneficent reign of Queen Victoria would be written down to posterity as the golden era iR English history. (Cheers.)—Mr E. Garmond proposed The ministers of religion"; and the Rev Canon Edwards, in response, spoke of the good feeling which had existed between the parishioners of St. Andrew's and himself during the nine years he had been their clergjman, and he hoped he would continue to have the prayers of the parishioners for Divine blessing upon the good work which he en- deavoured to perform. (Cheers.)—General Lee pro- posed the toast of the evening, that of Success to the loyal Dinas Powis Castle Lodge," which, he said, had been in existence for fifty-seven years. (Cheers.) He was pleased to see so many young men in the ranks of the lodge. It spoke of a noble spirit of self-deaial, and in this way tended to make themselves better men and better citizens. By their action they also helped to solve the great question as to what should be done with the aged poor. (Applause.) The effort, he believed, must come from within, and this being so he was delighted to find that the unity of the officers and members of the lodge was being attended with such success. (Cheers.)—Mr T. John, the treasurer of the lodge, in responding, said the receipts of the lodge last year amounted to £ 158 15s O.'d, and the total payments to £ 106 9s ] Id, showing a saving upon the year of £ 52 11s 1-Jd, bringing the balance in hand of the members up to £ 472 6s l^d. (Cheers.) This being the most successful meeting of the year in con- nection with the lodge, he (Mr John) strongly advocated a proposal that the Dinas Powis Castle Lodge should cease their connection with the Cardiff district. Last year, he said. the lodge paid a quota of £129178 7d towards the Cardiff district, whereas they received only £50 in return by way of death allowances. This was a question, therefore, which should be taken into considera- tion, and steps resolved upon to form a new district of the lodges in Barry and the district intervening between Dinas Powis aud Cowbridge. (Applause.) The death rate in connection with the Dinas Powis Castle Lodge was nut high, neither had it been high fur the last ten years. He might further say that under the additional restriction imposed by the new 19th general rule of the Unity, limiting the number of delegates to the proportionate number of members of each lodge, the Dinas Powis Castle lodge would in future be completely outvoted at the Cardiff district meetings. Mr John concluded by strongly advocating the establishment of a juvenile branch in connection with the lodge, and said their principal difficulty in this direction had been with the medical officer, who stated he could not under- take to attend juvenile members during sickness at a lower rate than that paid for adult members, whereas the amount charged by the lodge for juveniles would be much smaller than that for adult members. (Applause.)—Mr T. Thomas warmly approved of the secretary's suggestions, and said he questioned very much whether the order was composed of that true spirit of unity which should characterise so important an organ- isation. For instance, the Unity had in hand surplus funds amounting to no Jess than £ 8,000,000 sterling which they could not make use of in any way. If their lodge became insolvent they would have no help from the Cardiff district, and he con- sidered, therefore, it would be a great advantage to the lodge if it severed its connection with the Cardiff district, and took steps to affiliate itself with another district. (Cheers.) — Mr J. B. Mockford, in felicitous terms, proposed The Visitors and Kindred Societies," and spoke of the cordial welcome always extended to strangers by the members of the Dinas Powis Castle lodge. (Applause.)—Mr J. R. Llewellyn (Barry Dock News), in response, referred to the marvellous progress made by the friendly society system throughout the country during late years. Not long ago, he said, friendly societies suffered from an attitude on the part of the Government very much akin to direct antipathy, but the march of democratic progress had been so great that by the present time that spirit of apparent opposition had given way to one oi direct patronage, friendly societies and tjieir funds now being adequately protected by law. Only last week, he added, the Lord Chancellor of England had appointed a member of the lodge with which he (the speaker) was identified to a seat on the magisterial bench mainly on the ground of his valuable connection with the order, the members of the Glantivy lodge of Oddfellows at Cardigan having nominated that gentleman for appointment to the honourable position in his capacity as secretary to the Carningh district of the Unity. (Applause.) Oddfellowship. therefore, was making strenuous headway, and regardless of what might be said of incomprehensible organisms, like Free Masonry and other societies of the kind in existence, the great order of th. Manchester Unity laid just claim to an unparalleled position for genuine large-heartedness and philanthropy. (Cheers.) The paper with which he had for several years been connected in the Barry district had on repeated occasions strongly advocated the forma- tion of a separate district for the lodges in Barry and its neighbourhood, and he ventured to suggest that the Diuas Powis Castle Lodge, one of the veteran sections opthe Order in the district, should take the initial step, and assume parentage of the movement which had received such strong advocacy at the hands of Bros. John and Thomas that afternoon. (Applause.)—Songs and musical selections were given by the popular artiste, Ap Pearce (of Treherbert), Mr J. Hall, Mr C. Hall, Mr W. Powell, and others, and the convivial proceed- ings concluded with the toast of The Chairman and Vice-chairman." which was greeted with musical honours.-The brethren, accompanied by the brass band. then adjourned to the beautiful common, where dancing was indulged in by a numerous company of young folk for some time. The streets of the village were enlivened during the afternoon by se.eral sources of popular enjoy- ment.
