PENARTH SCHOOL BOARD.
PENARTH SCHOOL BOARD. ANNUAL REPORT OF GOVERNMENT INSPECTION. The members of the Penarth School Board held their monthly meeting at the Local Board Offices on Thursday evening last, present-Mr G. Carslake Thompson (chairman), Mr J. Llewellyn (vice- chairman), Rev W. Sweet-Escott, Messrs T. S. Lloyd, A. Holman, and S. Thomas, with Mr D. Rees (cltrk). THE GOVERNMENT REPORT. The report of the Education Department with reference to the recent annual examinations at the schools was read, the following being the principal points of interest :-Bo?ls' Department: Discipline is satisfactory singing is good, except in some of the modulator and ear tests. Grammar may be marked good, but falls to fair in one of the stan- dards. Geography is well taught, but falls off a little with the first class. The elementary work is generally creditable, and presents many good points. Reading should be slower, and more modu- lation in the first class. Recitation is satisfactory. I am glad to recommend the higher principal grant. Girls' Department: A cookery kitchen and a piano are strongly recommended. The discipline and tone are, as usual, excellent; the classification, however, needs a little more care. As a whole, the elementary work is decidedly creditable, and the higher principal grant is recommended. The composition in the fifth standard and the oral arithmetic generally need attention. The weak- ness in oral arithmetic has a little endangered the grant. The metric system should be taught. Needlework, singing, and grammar are very well taught; and recitation is a good subject. Infants: This scheol is in a very creditable condition of discipline and efficiency, and the highest grant is gladly recommended. The work of the first standard, while distinctly good, did not reach the high level of the work of the best classes of the infants. The effective musical drill is greatly aided by the piano generously presented by Mr Forrest.—My Lords expect to receive plans for the additional cloak room accommodation without delay. THE GRANTS. The following are statistical particulars from the report for the year ended 30th April, in con- nection with the schools :-Boys' average attend- ance, 309-7 average attendance on which grant is payable, 310. Girls' average attendance, 2()-7 attendance on which grant is payable, 265. Infants' average attendance, 386-5 attendance on which grant is payable, 387.

Grant on the average attendance of children over three and under fifteen years of age, namely, 960, £ 480 deduct instalments, £344\ 5s final payment of fee grant, £ 135 15s total sum payable, £1,074 Is 6d. TEACHERS TO BE CONGRATULATED. The members of the Board :expressed great satisfaction at the reports, and on the motion of Mr S. Thomas, seconded by the Rev W. Sweet- Escott, it was decided to tender a communication of congratulation to the head-master, head- mistress, and the teaching staffs on the report. FINANCE COMMITTEE'S REPORT. The Finance Committee reported a balance in hands of the treasurer in favour of the board of £19H 12s 6d. Bills amounting to £ 351 2s 10d were submitted and recommended to be paid.- The report was adopted on the motion of Mr S. Thomas.—The reports of the other committees of the board were received and passed. PRESENTATION BOOKS TO SCHOOL CHILDREN. With regard to the expenditure of £ 12 for the purchase of books, &c., for presentation to children at the schools for regular attendance and good behaviour, it was thought the auditor would not pass the amount in the Board's accounts.- The Chairman remarked the presentation would be in connection with the past half-year, and if the Board was surcharged the amount he thought the sum could be raised amongst the members, or, if not, he would meet the amount himself. This was all the business.
A COUPLE OF BAD BOYS AT PENARTH.
A COUPLE OF BAD BOYS AT PENARTH. MISCHIEVOUS DAMAGE TO BAKER'S GOODS. Two thirteen-year-old boys, named Wallis and Christelow, belonging to local labourers, were placed in the dock at Penarth Police Court on Monday last charged with doing damage to a quantity of baker's goods, belonging to Mr W. G. Warner, 23, Glebe-street, Penarth. The boys entered prosecutor's bakehouse through the roof of the building, and damaged wedding cakes and other confectionery goods.-The Bench considered the boys had been very badly brought up, and rebuked the parents for their neglect. The boys ought to be severely whipped, but they would have one more chance, and be bound over in 45 each to come up for judgment when called upon.
EXCITING INCIDENT AT PENARTH.
EXCITING INCIDENT AT PENARTH. A BOY AND PONY NEARLY DROWNED. An exciting scene was witnessed on Penarth Beach on Saturday morning last. A youth named William Boland took a pony and cart belonging to Mr Speed, builder, into the water, but went out too far. When he attempted to return the ebb tide had set in and the cart quickly filled. The tail board being up, the water could not run out, and there was imminent danger of both the horse and the boy losing their lives. Two boatmen, named Thomas Case and William Ellis, put off to the rescue, and whilst Case held the pony's head above the water Ellis rowed the boat, and by this means the horse was enabled to regain his footing, and eventually reached shore. The poor animal had, however, swallowed a considerable quantity of water, and but for the timely aid of Mr James Buckland, hackney carriage proprietor, would by this time have been ready for cat and dog meat." Mr Buckland, through the courtesy of the Es- planade manager, Mr Albert Nott, administered an emetic of mustard and water, and subsequently a gin drench. Even after this the pony looked very groggy, and but for continued attention in the shape of friction and walking up and down the beach could not have possibly recovered.

A COUNTY MAGISTRATE SUMMONED…
A COUNTY MAGISTRATE SUMMONED AT PENARTH, Mr T. R. Thompson, J.P., Erw'r Delyn, Penarth, one of the directors of the Barry Dock and Rail- ways Company, was summoned to appear at Pen- arth Police Court on Monday last on a charge of allowing his donkey to stray on the highway on the 20th ultimo. Colonel Guthrie. Mr S. Bachelor, and Mr J. H. Cory occupied the Bench, and they expressed themselves of opinion that inasmuch as Mr Thompson had been away from home it was possible he had not been apprised of the summons. The case was, therefore, adjourned for a week.- Peter Jackson, the well-known football player at Penarth, was fined 2s 6d for the same offence, de- fendant remarking he did not think he had been up on a similar charge before. HONOURING A BARRY DIRECTOR. PRESENTATION TO MR ROBERT FORREST, ELHIGH SHERIFF OF THE COUNTY. There was a. large and influential gathering af countylgentlemen at the Park Hotel, Cardiff, on Saturday afternoon last, the occasion being the presentatian to Mr Robert Forrest of a beautifully illuminated address in album form and a massive and chastely designed service of plate as a momento of his year of office as high- sheriff of the county. When Mr Forrest under- took the responsibilities of the office it was generally felt that the duties and the position would be performed thoroughly and well. And public anticipations were realised, for Mr Forrest carried himself through with dignity and earnest- ness. Mr Archibald Hood, J.P., deputy-chairman of the Barry Company, presided at the presentation meeting, and amongst those present were Messrs H. B. Cory, St Mellsn's Graham Dornford, Llan- daff J. Duncan, Llandough; Rev W. Dovey, Llanishen; T. Evans, Vishwell; John Gunn, Llandaff H. R. Homfray, Lenllyne General H. H. Lee, Dinas Powis; Evan Lewis, Llandaff; Henry Lewis, Greenmeadow W. H. Lewis, Cardiff (hon. sec.); T. W. Lewis, Bonvilstone; E. P. Martin, Dowlais John Mackay, Hereford W. W. Nell. Wenvoe Rev Theophilus Rees, St Mellon's E. Bernard Rees, Cardiff; Ithel T. Rees, S. W. Richards, J. Treharne Rees, Cardiff J. L. Shirley, Cardiff; Walter Shirley, Cardiff J. W. A. Stevens, Cardiff; Edward Seward, F.R.I.B.A.; Captain Williams, Pontypridd; C. H. Williams, Roath Court E. Ivor Williams, Duffryn Ffrwd T. Hamlen Williams, Fairfield J. Ignatius Williams, Whitchurch R. W. Williams, Car- diff and Lawrence G. Williams, Cardiff. Letters of apology for non-attendance were read from his Honour Judge Gwilym Williams, the Mackintosh of Mackintosh (Cotterell), Mr F. G. Evans, Mr R. T. Bassett, S;r W. T. Lewis, Mr W. H. Massey, Sir Morgan Morgan, Mr Osborne Sheppard, Mr H. O. Fisher, Mr W. H. Morgan, Mr F. L. Davis, Mr A. J. Williams, M.P., Sir John Jones Jenkins, Mr E. R. Moxey, Mr T. R. Thompson, Mr T. Forster Brown, Mr Walter Insole, Mr T. Webb, Mr E. Davies, &c. The testimonial consisted of a handsome service of plate, comprising a centre bowl and two side bowls, each with handles and rococco bases, four shelled boats, and two cups, the stands of which are beautifully-modelled Cupidon figures. The rims of the bowls are perforated with shell and flower patterns, in keeping with the general design, which is of the Georgian period. The cartouches bear the monogram of Mr Forrest and his coat-of-arms and crest. On the centre bowl is the inscription This bowl, together with a service of plate, was presented to Robert Forrest, Esq., High Sheriff of the county of Glamorgan, 1893-4, by some of his numerous friends." Accom- panying the pieces of plate was a chaste album, setting out the signatures of the subscribers. On the frontispiece is an illuminated representation of Mr Forrest's coat-of-arms, underneath which is the scroll, Ió Presented, with a service of plate, to Robert Forrest, Esq., Rigoh Sheriff of the county of Glamorgan, 1893-4, by some of his numerous friends." The Chairman, in opening, remarked that it I would have been better if some gentleman mote associated with their guest in the duties which he had recently been called upon to perform had been elected to the position of chairman of that meet- ing. There was also another reason why he (Mr Hood) should not have occupied the chair, and it was this that he was too much of the same family as their guest from a commercial and national standpoint. He had a lurking pleasure in seeing Caledonians coming to the front and receiving the right hand of fellowship in the land of their adoption. (Applause.) It was their wish he would live long to enjoy the presents, and when he could no longer enjoy them that they would be handed down to generations yet unborn to remind them that they had once an ancestor who was highly appreciated by his fellow-men. (Applause.)—The Chairman then handed over the album and plate, whilst the company enthusiasti- cally drunk the health of the guest in champagne. The album, which was executed in the office of Messrs Daniel Owen and Company. Cardiff, and was a veritable work of art, contained the signa- tures of a large number of subscribers, amongst whom were the Rev Canon Allen, Porthkerry Messrs D. T. Alexander, Dinas Powis J. Wolfe Barry, London; R. T. Bassett, Crossways: T. Forster Brown, Cardiff James Bell, Barry John Cory, Porthkerry Clifford J. Cory, Cardiff John Cory, Penarth Lascelles Carr, Cardiff; Rev W.

Williams, Q.C., London J. Ignatius Williams, Whitchurch &c. I In acknowledging the presentation, Mr Rotert Forrest said he rose with the greatest diffidence to thank them in a few words for the honour they had done him, first by the far )o kind and flattering remarks they had ,de of him personally, and for the handso and splendid service of plate that they and ot gentlemen had been good enough to subscribe to. Why he should have been singled out as the recipient of those encomiums he did not know. It had been his pleasure to carry out the duties of the office of high sheriff of the county in a. way that was con- sistent with the traditions of the office. (Hear, hear.) A "rote of thanks to the chairman terminated the proceedings.

SERIOUS CHARGE AGAINST A PENARTH GENTLEMAN. WHOLESALE DISOBEDIENCE OF THE EXCISE LAWS IN THE DISTRICT. Several cases were heard at Penarth Police Court on Monday last against persons in the dis- trict for keeping dogs without licences. Mr J. Beer, the superintendent of inland revenue in the district, stating there was a large number of cases of evasion of the excise at Penarth and the neigh- bourhood, which was infested with unlicensed bourhood, which was infested with unlicensed dogs. One of the summonses heard was against Mr Richard Wayne, Plymouth-road, and late of the Penarth Hotel, who had neglected to take out licences for three dogs in his possession.—Mr Wayne, jun., appeared, and admitted the offence, stating there was no intention on his father's part to defraud the revenue.—ColoDel Guthrie There is no excuse whatever for a gentleman like Mr Wayne he ought to have known better.—Fined 7s 6d and costs.

BARRY TEACHERS AND THE HIGHER EDUCATION OF THE POOR. THE DAVID DAVIES MEMORIAL SCHOLAR- SHIPS AT INTERMEDATE SCHOOL. At a meeting of the Barry District School Teachers' Association, held on Monday evening last at Barry, Mr E. T. Williams, president, in the chair, Mr T. Higman drew attention to the dona- tion promised to the Barry Intermediate School for the endowment of scholarships in memory of the late Mr David Davies, M.P., Llandinam, the deputy-chairman of the Barry Railway Company, and said he hoped these scholarships would be used for the benefit of the working-classes, by means of which the road to the University might be thrown open to the children of the day school. He would, therefore, move :— That this branch of the N.U.T., having observed with pleasure that scholarships are to be founded at the Barry Intermediate School in memory of the late Mr David Davies, urges upon the committee the desirability of any entrance examination for these scholarships being in the subjects and syllabus taught at the elementary day school, thus enabling the children of the working-classes fairly to compete for them. They would further point out that it is highly impor- tant that the scholarship should entirely or nearly cover the school maintenance of the child. -Mr J. E. Rees, in seconding, said he feared that the Intermediate School would fritter down to schools for the children of well-to-do parents, and that the children of the working-classes would not benefit very materially thereby.—Mr R. T. Evans supported the resolution, and said he did not object in any way to children of well-so-do parents com- peting in these scholarship examinations, but he maintained that the money should be applied to successful candidates from amongst children of poor parents. (Hear, hear.)-The resolution was put to the meeting and carried unanimously.* J

ALLEGED SCANDAL ON BOARD A…
ALLEGED SCANDAL ON BOARD A BARRY-BOUND SHIP. There is at present a great outcry (says the Seamen's Chronicle') being raised by the ship- owning fraternity respecting the sobriety. &c., of the average British seaman being at a discount, such contention providing a subterfuge for the employment of alien seamen, yet we find, upon the arrival of a West Hartlepool ship at Barry Dock, that liquor at the rate of two shillings per bottle has been constantly supplied to the crew during the voyage, and that such deductions for value of same have been entered as stores supplied on the men's account of wages. This is a scandalous state of affairs, and cannot be too strongly condemned in the public interest. It would be interesting to learn the person in receipt of the profits on this liquor, and whether such person is liable for the sale thereof. Happily, such cases as these do not appear to be prevalent, otherwise the erreat loss of life at sea would be considerably augmented. How can it be expected that in such cases discipline can be maintained.' Is this another move of the Shipping Federation to fleece Jack of his hard- earned but paltry pittance, in order to keep him without moneys so that his services may be easier obtained at a low rate of wages ?"

SIR,-Seeing in your issue of last week an ex- haustive report given of a dinner to the members of the Barry and Cadoxton Conser- vative Club and Institute. I have since been struck with the idea that in face of the remarkable success of this gathering the present time may be opportune for the formation. of a Conservative Hundred for the district. Especially do I urge this in consideration of Mr Lougher's suggestion that Barry is entitled to re- presentation. Perhaps Captain Murrell, before he retires from the helm of affairs in connection with the new institute, will make this his hobby, and see that a hundred chosen men are selected to constitute themselves the first hundred of Con- servatism for the district of Barry.-Yours, &c..

SERIOUS CARRIAGE ACCIDENT…
SERIOUS CARRIAGE ACCIDENT AT BARRY. THE VICAR OF PENMARK'S TWO DAUGHTERS INJURED AND THE PONY KILLED. A serious carriage accident occurred on Thurs- day afternoon last at Barry. It appears that a. pony trap belonging to the Rev E. Morgan, vicar of Penmark, and containing the two daughters and coachman of that crentleman, was being I' driven into Barry from Penmark, and on proceed- ing in the direction of High-street the coachman pulled up suddenly in order to avoid coming into collision with some children who were playing about, when the animal missed its footing and stumbled to the ground, throwing the three occupants of the vehicle heavily on to the road. When picked up the Misses Morgan were found to have been injured, and Dr Powell was promptly sent for. The pony, however, fared more severely, one of its hind legs having been broken, and the two fore legs considerably cut. The animal was conveyed to the Barry Hotel stables, where it succumbed to the injuries the same night.
