Notes and Comments. ABOUT the only topic that can be discussed to-day is Politics. It is discussed in public, and in private, and even on the Lawn Tennis ground this week dur- ing one of the most important contests, a heated dis- cussion was going on between two gentlemen respecting the coming election. At a committee meeting held to discuss arrangements for a picnic politico crept in, and for a time the special business •which had brought them together was forgotten. Ladies and gentlemen appear to be vieing with each Other in the interest they are taking in this, the one, great question, and enen little children are beginning to get excited over the coming struggle- But what a pitiable position political parties in Penarth find themselves placed in. No organisation. But this applies more particularly to the Liberals who have always boasted of being the dominant party in our town. The Conservatives have, of late, suffered much through disorganisation, but it is true, they have been more on the alert, more wideawake than their opponents, and they are now getting into proper fettle, and are working with untiring vigour, night and day in support of their caudidate-Major Quin. An open-air meeting was held at Cogan last Saturday Z;) night, another on the Queen's Bench on Wednesday, and a mass meeting is announced for Saturday even- ing. Whilst these meetings are being held in the Conservative interest, the Liberal workers have not even met to consider Mr Williams's candidature. Mr Hughes was in Penarth on Thursday, and we understand a meeting for workers only will be held in the Juhilee Hall next Wednesday, and on the Friday following a meeting will be held in Andrews' hall. The fight so far as Penarth is concerned, will be one of the severest ever known, and it is almost certain thai Mr Williams's majority will be greatly reduced. There are great and important measures in the Liberal programme, but there is one, viz., the Local Veto Bill, which we feel we can openly declare allegiance to, without sacrificing our neutrality upon political questions- This is a matter which affects the morality and well being of the reople, and we hope Major Quin, whose opinions we have not heard on the subject, will be called upon to express his views. The only interest at stake in placing this power in the hands of the people, is the publicans, and we have a right to demand the privilege of saying whether we will have a nuisance in our midst or not. It is not every one who considers that it advisable that all public bouses should be closed-neither do we say so, but we want them purged of that which make them almost intolerable, and made to fulfil the pur- pose for which they were originally intended. But it is not for us to discuss the Local Veto question now. People understand its meaning, and appreciate its provisions, and we only further add that we hope both candidates who will seek our suffrages will de- clare themselves in favour of this one great measure.
PJSMRTH BOAT CLUB. FINAL RACE FOR CHALLENGE CUP. AN EXCITING FINISH. On Saturday afternoon the final race for the club' handsome silver challenge cup was decided, the follow- ing yachts competing:—New Moon owned by Mr A.

Immedi- iately after a thunderstormJcame on which completely hid the crafts from the view of the spectators ashore, The tempest abating; the Thorne was seen to be to the windward and well ahead, with the Querida mak- ing a game effort to get on equal terms.

Stranding of a Yacht at Penarth. On Monday evening Mr Phillip Model's yacht May, while at anchor in Penarth Roads, drifted during a gale from her moorings, and was carried on to the beach near the Kymin. She began to fill, despite the efforts of four men named Tom Senile, Morgan, Phil Searle, and William Parker, who did all they could to lighten her. There is every probability of her becom- ing a wreck.
