LOCAL AND GENERAL NOTES. I PROPOSED SWIMMING CLUB AT PHXARTH. An application of an opportune and commendable character has been made this week to the Penarth Local Board. It is for permission to establish a swimming club in the town in connection with the public baths. In the latter respect Penarth is ahead of many places of similar character, and gentlemen having been found enterprising enough to initiate a project for the formation of a swimming club, we hope they will receive every encouragement at the hands of the local authority. RESIGNATION OF ONE OF THE LABOUR MEMBERS OF THE BURIAL BOARD. In face of the recent allegations of the president of the local Railwaymen's Society at the last meeting of the Barry Trades' Council, Mr Morgan Nicholas has taken a very wise step in resigning his seat on the Burial Board, for until the stigma created by the statement made by Mr Makepeace is thoroughly removed public confidence} could not be expected to contin e repose in the accredited representatives of labour in the district. We hope now the Trades' Council will lose no time in considering the new phase of things, and we venture to believe they will have no qualms whatever in recommending Mr Nicholas, after the manly step he has taken, for re-election upon the Burial Board. EXTENSION OF THE BARRY AND CADOXTON DISTRICT. At the quarterly meeting of the Glam- organ Local Govern- ment Committee, held at Cardiff last Thurs- day, under the chair- manship of Alderman Walter H. Morgan, the following order was 11 t5 made, under the provisions of the Local Government Act, 1804 :—(1) The part of the parish of Sully which is in the Barry and Cadoxton Local Government district shall be united with the parish of Cadoxton-juxta- Barry. (2) The area known as Sheeping Moors shall be united with and form part of the parish of Cadoxton-juxta-Barry. (3) The parish or extra parochial place, Highlight, shall be united with the parish of Wenvoe. (4) The order of the Local Government Board, dated February 28th, 1878, uniting the said place of Highlight to the parish of Merthyr I Dovan for representative purposes, is rescinded. HARRY TEMPERANCE CUOIR. For some time past a pressing need has been felt in the Barry district for an united choir which shall adequately voice forth the sentiment and musical talent of the Temperance party. Such a choir has at last been formed, and is now under special training for the important work which lies before it. Curiosity has been mani- fested as to the purpose for which the choir has been brought into existence, in consequence of which the committee have thought that an explanation should be offered as to the real object in view. The formation of the Barry Temperance Choir is due to the influence of a committee which met some time ago in Cardiff for the purpose of extending the National Temperance Choral Union. After due enquiries in Barry, a few suitable gentlemen (some of whom had been previously connected with the Cardiff and Newport Blue Ribbon Choirs, and all enthusiastic temperance musicians) were found who were willing to undertake the work, and so far the result has altogether exceeded their expectations, a large choir having come together, the choir being now in training for the National Temperance Festival to be held at the Crystal Palace on July 10th. Though late in entering, Barry has the privilege of sending fifty voices towards the five thousand that will take part in the first concert on that occasion. On Wednesday, July 4th, as announced by us last week, it is intended to give a grand concert in the Market Hall, Barry, when the pieces to be sung in London will be rendered by the choir, and it is hoped that all friends of temperance will prove their sympathy with the movement by their presence at the concert, and their hearty support of the work of the choir. After the visit to London, the nex; great event for which preparation will be made will be the South Wales Temperance Festival at Cardiff in September. Those temperance singers who have not yet joined the choir, but have expressed their desire of doing so, will then have the opportunity of availing themselves of the capital musical training which preparation for the festival will entail. It is not intended to hold Saturday evening enter- tainments, but temperance meetings being arranged by already existing organisations, the choir will be pleased to render all assistance in its power to further the cause of temperance generally. Some influential gentlemen of the I neighbourhood have already promised their patronage and help, and friends connected with various places of worship have willingly lent their buildings for practices. While acknow- ledging this, we would like to remind our friends that in order to make the choir as representative as possible of all denominations, and to establish it on a thoroughly permanent basis, the sympathy of all temperance workers is required, and when this is enlisted, with the strong temperance party of Barry behind them, and the able leadership of Mr John Hicks, there is every prospect that, ere long, Barry will be able to boast of one of the finest temperance choirs in the county.

THE TENDERS FOR BARRY NEW DOCK. A GOODLY NUMBER TO HAND. A large number of tenders having been re- ceived from the leading engineering firms of the country for the contract for the construc- tion of the initial section of the new dock at Barry, it is understood that the directors of the company will hold a meeting in a day or two to consider and decide upon the same, but it is doubtful whether any official announcement in the matter will be made until after the next monthly meeting of the directors.

COMBINATION AMONGST BARRY RATEPAYERS. As will be seen by a report published in our news columns this week, a meeting of rate- payers, composed of residents of Cadoxton and Barry Docks; was held on Friday evening last in a building in course of erection in Holton-road, for the purpose of considering the desirability of forming a Ratepayers' Association for the 'district. Mr George Garnett, of Barry-road, was the chairman, and Mr David Jones, of the Pyke-street Post Office, we understand, performed the duties of secretary. The proceedings were con- ducted in private, a representative of the Barry Dock News who presented himself at the meeting—although himself a rate- payer—being asked to retire. From informa- tion which has subsequently reached us, however, we are informed that the members of the Local Board came in for a warm slating at the hands of some of the t, speakers, the Board being strongly condemned for alleged extravagant and reckless expendi- 0 9 ture of public money upon what was described as entirely needless objects. We have not a word to say against the idea of combination on the part of the ratepayers of the district, but the present instance, we feel, is one in which combination is calculated to prove suicidal rather than conducive to the interests of the general public. Those present at the meeting on Friday evening must be fully aware that the Chamber of Trade is to all intents and purposes a ratepayers' association, and we venture to state that that body has been the means of doing far greater public good than either of the memorable ratepayers' associations which previously existed in the district. To form an opposition organisation must, therefore, prove mutually detrimental, and we trust the promoters of the present movement will consider before they lend their aid to the formation of a body the operations of which must prove a source of needless friction with a like body already in existence. What we would, rather, suggest is this, that the agrieved ratepayers in the present instance should become members of the Chamber of Trade, where their opinions could be ventilated, and any suggestions they may have to make could be carried into effect. In the case of the ratepayers of Barry, like everything else, the old adage of United we stand, divided we f all," is equally applic- able.
THE ALLEGED CHILD MURDER AT PENARTH. THE ACCUSED COMMITTED FOR TRIAL AT THE ASSIZES. At Barry Docks Police Court on Thursday (before Dr Neale and Mr John Lowdon), Emily Culliford, aged 19, ot Glebe-street, Penarth, was brought up in custody charged on remand with the murder of her male child. The court was crowded during the hearing with residents both of Barry and Penarth. Prisoner looked composed, and watched the proceedings minutely. At the request of Mr T. H. Belcher, solicitor for the defence, the accused was allowed to be seated. Mr Belcher stated that before th& inquiry he should make a respectful protest* against the scandalous manner in which the defendant had been brought to the court. Her position, which was a very painful one, had been aggravated by being conveyed to the court by the most public paths, and at the most publie time. This state of things should not exist in these days. Miss Gertrude Jenner, The Typica, said she was present to watch the case on behalf of the prisoner. Arthur Wellington, son of Mr Walter Welling- ton, 22, Harriett-street, Cogan, gave firsfc. evidence. He was in the dingle at Penarth on the 13th instant at 6.45 in the morning, when he saw a parcel lying about tive yards from the road- way. He did not open the bundle, but gave in- formation to the police.—Under examination by Mr Belcher, witness said he was picking up sticks- when he found the parcel. He was in the dingle on the previous Friday, but did not see the parcel. If it had been there he would have seen ik The parcel had brown paper outside, and it was quite dry. It was not wet on the morning of the 13th, but it had been raining the night before. He went to the dingle at six o'clock, and during the three-quart,ers-of-an-hour he was in there he could not see the road. During about five min- utes he could see the road, and he noticed one man on the road. His (witness') brother was with him in the dingle, but he did not notice anyone else. The nettles in which the parcel was found was not trampled down. Anyone could enter the dingle near the place where the parcel was found. The string round the parcel had not been broken. Walter Wellington, father of the last witness, deposed to visiting the dingle at the instigation of his son. He opened the parcel, and found it con- tained the dead body of an infant, and he then gave information to the police.-In reply to Mr Belcher witness said he did not notice the parcel as he was returning to work in the morning. Anyone could see the parcel from the road. He knew the prisoner by sight, and he did not see her the morning the parcel was found. Mrs Martha Green, wife of Mr Alfred Green, lb2, Cowbridge-road, Cardiff, said prisoner had been with her as domestic servant for fifteen, months, leaving on March 10th last. Since prisoner's father was kiUed, on the 22nd Septem- ber, she had complained of feeling iu. Prl was a very good, industrious, clean servant, zszd was also reserved and modest in her way. Witness had taken great interest in the prisoner, and had noticed no signs of pregnancy with her, and she kept good hours at night. She would, witness said, take prisoner back into her service at any time if there was a vacancy. Mrs Parker, wife of William Parker, 42, Glebe- street, Penarth, stated she had known prisoner from her infancy. She washed the blanket produced twelve months ago for prisoner's sister but she could not say whether the stains at present on the blanket were on it when she returned the same. Just before Palm Sunday, March 18th, prisoner told her she had not left her situation in Cardiff, but had only come home for her health. Shortly afterwards prisoner informed witness she was about fetching her boxes from her situation in Cardiff. Witness had never seen defendant out at night, and knew her to be a quiet modest person, and she always slept with her (prisoner's) sister, a Mrs Screen, whose husband worked at the docks. She (witness) knew a rag and bone dealer visited Pen- arth from Cardiff three times a week, and she had seen this man calling to deal where prisoner lodged. Prisoner had complained to witness of feeling unwell, and she advised her to go to a doctor. She noticed sometime ago she was growing rather stout, but witness put that, down to disorders. Prisoner remarked at the time this was the cause of her stoutness, Prisoner was fatherless and motherless. Mis Stokes, wife of John Stokes, 39, Glebe- street, Penarth, said she saw prisoner about five weeks ago at her sister's house. She noticed prisoner was rather stout, and re- marked "I suppose you have come home to get rid of it, but you will not." Wit- ness had noticed prisoner had got much slighter since she made that remark. By Mr Belcher Witness said she had been on bad termar with prisoner's sister, and added she made the above remark whilst in a temper, otherwise she would not have said it. She had made a similar remark to prisoner's sister some time ago, boh denied making a remark to Mrs Screen aboub twelve months ago to the effect that she would have her revenge. Dr J. H. Rees, Herbert-terrace, Penarth, deposed to making a pogt-mortein examination. and in his opinion deceased had died by strangula- tion, caused by a linen band tied tightly round the neck. The only marks of injury were those on the neck.-By Mr Belcher Witness stated he had ascertained that deceased had had a separate existence by the hydrostatic test, which. was a very good one. The evidence of Inspector Rubber, Penarth,was read over, and has already appeared in the papers. The nightdress produced bore the name Emily Culliford," and prisoner had stated she sold this article to a ragman from Grangetown. Questioned by Mr Belcher, Inspec- tor Rutter said that after a search at the house where defendant lived he had found nothing in connection with a recent birth. The stained blanket (produced) was found in her bedroom. A few minutes after he entered the house for the purpose of thearrest, prisoner admitted she had sold some clothes to a ragman from Grangetown. He (witness) had not made any inquiries in Grangetown with reference to this transaction.—Mr Belcher Why ? Is it because the result would be favourable to the prisoner?— Inspector Rutter: No, I should like to say as much in favour of the prisoner as otherwise, and I am sorry to see her in this position. — Mr Belcher: You have made careful inquiries into this case ?-" Yes."—And thia is all the evi- dence you can bring?—Yes, air. Inspector Rutter also stated a policeman would pass the dingle once every hour during the night time. Mr Belcher, at the close of the evidence, paid if a prima facie case had not been made out he would make an address, bat if it had he would reserve defence. The Chairman: We have decided to commit* the prisoner. Prisoner, in answer to the charge, that of killing her child, said I have nothing to say." Defence was reserved. Prisoner was committed for trial at the Assizes
