On Monday evening last, about 8.30, a coal- trimmer in the employ of the Ocean Coal Company, named Thomas Taylor, aged 65, living at 15, Adamsdown-square, Cardiff, was leaving a ship lying under No. 11 tip at Barry Docks, and was attempting to pass between some empty trucks lying on the line close by, when the engine was suddenly started, and the train moving Taylor was crushed between two trucks, sustaining shocking injuries to the abdomen and ribs. The poor fellow was taken by Dock-constable Edwards to the Barry Police Station, but notwithstanding the prompt and skilful exertions of Dr Powell he succumbed within an hour. Much sympathy is felt for the widow and family of the deceased in their sudden bereavement. FIRE ON BOARD SHIP AT BARRY DOCKS. A fire broke out on board the steamer Cameo lying in Barry Docks on Thursday evening last, and a large amount of damage was done before the outbreak could be got under.

BARRY AND SOUTH GLAMORGAN. A PROBABLE CONSERVATIVE CAN- DIDATE. CAPTAIN HAMILTON MURRELL RECEIVES A CORDIAL INVITATION. AND WILL CONSIDER THE MATTER. ENTHUSIASTIC MEETING AT BARRY DOCKS. The members of the new Barry and Cadoxton Conservative Club and Institute, Holton-road, Barry Docks, who already number about 500, held a crowded meeting in the large Reading-room of the Institute for the purpose of presenting Captain Hamilton Murrell, of Barry, the famous hero of the Danmark rescue, with a petition, which measured three or four yards in length, and was signed, it was pointed out at the meeting, by nearly four hundred Conservatives, Unionists, and Liberals of the Barry polling districts and others, with a view of prevailing upon that gentleman to offer himself as candidate in the Conservative and Unionist interests for South Glamorgan at the next general election. The proceedings were distinguished by considerable enthusiasm, and Captain Murrell was repeatedly accorded quite an ovation during the evening, and was strongly urged by his many friends present to accept the honour offered by means of the petition. I CAPTAIN HAMILTON MURRELL. 1- The chair was occupied by Dr E. Treharne, of Cadoxton, and amongst those present were—Messrs B. G. Davies (solicitor), D. Lloyd Lougher (organising agent of the South Glamorgan Conservative Association), 1. T. Dando, sen. and jun., H. C. Griffin, sen. and jun., D. W. Howell, G. Willett, Rees Jones, D. Clark, T. Buckler, W. Griffin (Cadoxtou), E. Lloyd, W. Minnis, W. Fowler, T. P. Thomas (Barry), J. W. Davies, J. Russell (secretary), J. Jones, B. T. Pomeroy, J. Williams (Windsor-road), C. Christian, P. T. Holmes, T. Parry, L. Price, R. Percival, E. W. Willey, &c. In opening, Dr Treharne explained the object of the meeting, and said a deputation, consisting of himself (as chairman), Messrs B. G. Davies, H. C. Griffin, R. S. Robinson, F. J. Colyer, I. T. Dando, D. W. Howell, J. Arnold, G. Willett, W. Fowler, G. H. Handcock, T. Buckler, W. Minnis, E. Jenkins, J. W. Davies, and the secretary, was in attendance to present Captain Hamilton Murrell with a numerously- signed and influential petition to contest South Glamorgan as a Conservative at the next general election. (Loud applause.) The petition, he said, had been readily signed by the Conservatives and Unionists of the district, as well as by many active Liberals, and he felt the enthusiasm which was displayed all round was a sufficient justifica- tion of the important step taken by the members of the institute. (Loud applause.) At this stage, Captain Murrell entered the room, and was received with deafening applause, inter- spersed with cries of Our future M.P." The Chairman then read the petition, which was as follows:— To CAPTAIN HAMILTON MUKRBLI,, OF BAURY. We, the undersigned, being ratepayers of the polling districts of Barry, Barry Docks, and Cadox- ton, of the Southern Division of the county of Glany)rgan, respectfully request you to allow your- self to be nominated as the Conservative and Liberal Unionist candidate for this electoral division, at the next Parliamentary election, and we pledge ourselves to do all in our power to successfully return you at the head of the poll. We feel deeply the great honour you would do us by fighting for the good old cause in our interest, but we are fully assured that we have chosen the most popular and well-known gentleman in the whole district, one whose name has become a household word in all parts of the civilised world, and whose great renown, together with such eminent personal qualifications, must, in the event of your consenting to contest the seat, render the position a perfectly safe one, and that your candidature will carry all opposition before it. Continuing his remarks, Dr Treharne said there were many supporters of the present Government who would vote for the Conservative cause at the next election in the event of Captain Murrell being put forward, for they were heartily sick of the present constitution of the legislature. (Cheers.) At the last election there was practically no organisation in the Barry district, but through the influence of this powerful and popular club, they hoped to secure the return of a gentleman of their own choice at the next election. (Cheers.) He, therefore, earnestly hoped that Captain Murrell would give the invitation extended to him that evening his most serious consideration, and felt confident that with unity and energetic effort he would be triumphantly returned. (Loud ap- plause.) Mr H. C. Griffin was the first member of the deputation to address the meeting. He cordially endorsed every word and sentiment contained in the petitiop, and trusted Captain Murrell would give them a favourable reply. When he (Mr Griffin) first came to Barry, he felt all,. alone, believing that he was about the only Conservative in the whole district. (Laughter.) But looking round the room that evening, surrounded as he was by a crowd of respectable working-men-and all Conservatives were respectable (applause)-his fears had been dispelled, and he was now satisfied that there was in Barry a large and growing constitutional element. (Cheers.) Mr Griffin said he did not know how the majority of the Welsh members could expect the support of the people any longer. Personally he was simply ashamed of their conduct. (Applause.) He was confident that the Conservative party had the honour, integrity, and consolidation of the Empire at heart, and would not allow, as the present Government did, the country to be frittered away piecemeal. (Applause.) He might be desc/ibed as a Tory of the old school, but he was satisfied that they had yet to find a. political party that had done, or would do, more genuine good for the people than the Conservatives. (Cheers.) Captain Murrell was a gentleman whom they all well knew and respected, and he, in return, was intimately acquainted with the wants of the general classes of the public, and be felt they could not possibly find a better member than in the person of Barry's nominee. (Applause.) Mr B. G. Davies was the next speaker, and said that Captain Murrell possessed three eminent qualifications for a member of Parliament. First, a good presence; second, ability third, a strong connection. (Cheers.) Captain Murrell might think it was premature to allow his name to be submitted as candidate for the division, but he (Mr Davies) felt if they waited until another redistribution of seats took place they might then be confronted by a stranger who knew nothing of the wants of the constituency. (Cheers). Mr W. Minnis addressed the meeting as a. Con- servative working-man, and stated he felt that the petition did not contain the names of even a third of the working-men of the district who were pre- pared to vote for Captain Murrell. (Cheers.) Captain Murrell was an upright, honest, and able man of business, and he looked forward with con- fidence to his return at the head of the poll at the next election. (Applause.) Mr John Williams, Windsor-road, Barry, also spoke in favour of the nomination of Captain Murrell, and promised to do all in his power to secure his return. (Cheers). Mr D. Lloyd Lougher spoke at some length, and evoked a good deal of enthusiasm in the course of his remarks. He said he would be able to tell the executive of the Conservative Associa- tion in South Glamorgan of the marvellous degree of enthusiasm which existed in connection with that institute, and especially in connection with the proceedings that evening. (Cheers.) Intelligent working men, he was convinced, would support a Conservative Government, but somehow or other the unthinking, indifferent, and the ignorant voter generally cast his lot in favour of Radicalism. (Cheers.) He should like to know what the Liberal Government had done during the past two years-A voice Lord Rosebery has won the Derby." (Laughter.)—Continuing, Mr Lougher claimed that the Conservative party had been the means of passing several useful measures during the past few years, and attributed the existing stagnation of trade in the country to the retro- gressive policy of the Government. Speaking of Unionism, Mr Lougher said he considered the noble and self-denying step taken by such eminent Unionists as the Duke of Devonshire, Sir Henry James, Mr Goschen, and Mr Joseph Chamberlain had been the means of saving Ireland from bloodshed and the country generally from civil warfare. (Applause.) The Disestablishment Bill he characterised as a damnable measure, and said unless religion was the first consideration of every true British subjeet the prosperity of the nation would soon be on the wane. Concluding, Mr Lougher said Captain Murrell was undoubtedly one of the people, and hoped that gentleman would carefully consider the important invitation extended to him, and trusted he would determine to place his services at the disposal of his Queen and the Conservative cause. (Applause.) Mr J. Russell referred to the remarkable pro- gress made by Conservatism in the Barry district during the past few months, and expressed a hope that with strenuous efforts they would be able to return Captain Murrell at the first opportunity. (Cheers.) ADDRESS BY CAPTAIN MURRELL. Captain Murrell, who was again accorded a gtatifying reception, addressed the meeting at length in exposition of his views as a Conservative Nonconformist. He approved of the principle of disestablishment of the Church in Wales, but stoutly opposed disendowment, and felt convinced the majority of the Welsh people were of the same opinion. (Cheers.) Referring to the new Local Government Act, Captain Murrell said in Glamor- ganshire alone an expenditure of at least JB5,000 would be u<tce<seary to carry out the proposed alteration of boundaries. He approved of Mr Chamberlain's forecast of the conservative pro- gramme of the next Government; and maintained that it was a great hardship that there was 9,000 shipmasters in the country who at present were denied the privilege of franchise and citizenship. With reference to the flattering invitation which had been extended to him, he said he would give it his earnest consideration, but he L::lt, before any definite step was taken, the feeling of the Conservatives in the division should be consulted in the matter, for without unity and active support the efforts which might be put forward to wrest the seat from Radical- ism would prove fruitless. (Loud applause.) He was naturally very gratified to feel that he had been so highly honoured on that occasion by so many respectable Conservatives in the Barry district, and felt it was one of the most flattering testimonials he had ever received in his life. He confessed he was one of those Conservatives who felt it was still a honour to sit in the House of Parliament, but, unfortunately for him, he feared his business would prevent him devoting the necessary amount of time to the important duties which a member for so large a division as South Glamorgan would be required to discharge. At the same time, he thanked them for the enthusias- tic demonstration extended to him that evening, and the cordial terms in which the petition was couched. He would ask the indulgence of the meeting, and promised to re-consider the position before giving a definite reply to the invitation of his friends. (Great cheering.) The present Government, he felt, had done practically no good to the country, their efforts having been directed towards dragging the country down and mixing the same up in quarrels with our neighbours, and he thought, therefore, it was the duty of every Conservative and Unionist throughout the country to endeavour to the utmost to return once more to power a Government in whom every true British subject would have complete confidence. (Cheers.) In connection with the Church there were disabilities which required removal. In other countries the Church towered far above all other sections of the Christian community, and he did not see why the disestablished Church in England and Wales could not do the same. Still he protested most strongly against the scheme of disendowment and spoliation which had been propounded by a member of the Government, and felt if the opinion- of the Welsh people was taken on the matter the large majority would ex- press its opposition to the proposal of disendow- ment of the mother Church. (Cheers.) Dealing with the cry for the abolition of the House of Lords, Captain Murrell said that two years ago the Liberal party threatened to overthrow the Upper Chamber if its members dared to throw out the Home Rule Bill. The Home Rule Bill had been thrown out, but the House of Lords was still in existence, and he felt that they held a firmer sway upon the confidence of the country than they ever held before. (Applause.) Having spoken in warm sympathy of the healthy aspirations of the work- ing classes of the country, Captain Murrell went on to refer to the salutary programme of reform which Mr Chamberlain had given a forecast of as the intentions of the next Conservative Gov- ernment, and trusted that in this programme measures would be adopted to place the aged poor of the country in a position of greater security, and do away with the abominable work- house system. (Cheers.) Of the 9,000 ship- masters in Great Britain, who at present were not entitled to vote, at least 8,000 were Conservatives, and it behoved the Conservative party in its own interest to avail themselves of the first opportunity of conceding this measure of justice, and give such a large section of the British community their rightful place in the body politic. (Cheers.) On resuming his seat, Captain Murrell was deafeningly applauded, and the audience rose and gave him three hearty cheers. On the motion of the Chairman, seconded by Mr W. Fowler, who spoke in spirited terms as a Conservative working-man, the following resolu- tion was unanimously adopted :— That, in the opinion oi this meeting of Conserva- tives, Captain Hamilton Murrell is a fit and proper gerson to represent this division in the House of ommons, and we pledge ourselves to do our utmost to further his candidature, if he consents to contest the seat at the next election. This meeting is also of opinion that the executive council of this electoral division cannot do better than give their hearty support to Captain Hamilton Murrell, and we recommend his candidature to the executive of th& Southern Division of the Glamorgan Conservative Association. The meeting closed with a vote of thanks to the- chairman for presiding, the Secretary earnestly impressing upon the working-men of the district the desirability of registration.

BARRl' RAILWAY COMPANY APPEAL. DECISION OF THE JUDGES. On Tuesday afternoon last, in the Court of Ap- peal, the Master of the Rolls and Lords Justices Kay and A. L. Smith disposed of the appeal of the Barry Railway Company from the judgment of Mr Justice Kennedy at Cardiff, holding that the defendants were liable to pay certain increase of passseger fares an the plaintiffs' line from Penarth Dock Junction to Cardiff. Sir Richard Webster, Q.C. (with Mr Bailhache), contended that the Taff Vale Company were not entitled to recover any higher fares than those in force when theagreement as to running powers was come to between the two parties. Since then the Taff Company had raised the fares Jta., and called upon the Barry Company to pay the increase, which they refused, relying upon the wording of the agreement. Mr. T. E. Bankes, who appeared for the respondents, was. not called upon. The Master of the Rolls said the Barry Company were bound to pay any rise in fare by the Taff Vale Company, and dismissed the appeal with costs. Lords Justices Kay and Smith. concurred. j
BARRY V. TAFF APPEAL CASE. There was down for bearing in the Court of Appeal this week a case in which the Taff Vale Railway Company appeal from a decision given at the last Glamorganshire Assizes. The case is one which refers to the fares charged to the Barry Company on the Taff Vale Railway line between Cardiff and Cogan. The Barry Company allege that when they commenced to run through traina to Cardiff the fare was increased, contrary to an agreement which existed between themselves and the Taff. Judgment went in favour of the latter, hence the appeal.
DESECRATION OF NATURE. Although the Homocea Co. have had one of the greatest schemes in rural advertising put before them, they have declined to entertain it on account of the "widespread disgust existing in the minds of all who love their woods, dales, fields, streams, rocks and hills in tho glory of their natural beauties, undefiled by the modern bill- poster. They (The Homocea Co.), are content with the legitimate channel of the Press, and by Pamphlets containing Testimonials. They can point to cures, far more convincing than mere assertion. 0 TESTIMONIAL FROM BISHOP TAYLOR. HIGH BARNET. My dear old Friend,—I distributed a variety of your remedies among afflicted natives, and among missionaries in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Coast of Guinea, Congo Country, and Angola, South of Congo. I have not been over those different and distant fields since, and have no definite information in regard to their curative power. I have used HOMOCEA and have proved its healing virtue both for severe bruises and flesh wounds, and also to kill the virus of mosquitoes and chiggoes (jiggers). Yours very truly, (Bishop) WM. TAYLOR. American Methodist Episcopal Mission. LORD CARRICK says HOMOCEA cured him of bleeding piles, when all else failed that he gave some to a labourer who was lamed by a stone fall- ing upon him, whom it cured. A woman had a pain in the elbow and could not bend it for a year, and it cured her, and another used it for scurvy on her leg, and it was doing her good-one letter closes from him with the words, "It is the most wonderful stuff that I ever came across." Remember that HOMOCEA subdues inflammation and allays irritation almost as soon as applied, for it "TOUCHES THE SPOT." All wholesale houses stock HOJIOCEA. It can be obtained from Chemists and others at Is. I%d. or 2s. 9d. per box, or will be sent by post for Is. 3d. and 3s. from the wholesale agency, 21, Hamiltoa., feauare. Birkenhead.
