Weekly Notes by Quirkpepip. The Editor does not hold himself responsible for the opinions expressed in these notes. Politics Politics Politics to the exclu- sion of nearly everything else, is the talk and the all. absorbing topic Even the School Board convened an extraordinary meeting for Wednesday evening-, and summarily adjourned it to go spouting and stumping- What matters it that the defaulting school managers met to consider the advisability of resigning before they were invested wit-i the order of Chtick ? The political rabies is epidemical, and ■willy nilly every one is affected. 0 0 0 And 'tis good it were so. May the time speed when the illiterate voter is disenfranchised. Our irode of Imperial government is of vital moment, and every true son of the Commonwealth ought to feel a keen interest in, and study the—Science of Govern- ment. For this reason one must feel pleased to see the .Clergy and Ministers taking an active part. The former prominently identified themselves last week, this week the latter were en evidence on Weduesday night in Andrews' small hall. And why not ? Of what avail are our forefathers' efforts if we shitk our duty politic which is preeminently the first and fore- most of a real citizen. Without compromising myself in this matter it would not be trial a propos to quote Macaulay lie says If, rejecting all that is merely y I, accidental, we look at the essential characteristics of the Whig and the Tory, we may consider each of them as the representative of a great principle, essential to the welfaie of nations. One is. in an especial manner, the guardian of liberty, and the other, of order. One is the moving power, and the other the steadying power of the state- One is the sail, without which society would make no progress, the other the ballast, without which there would be small safety in a tempest." 0 0 0 A much vexed question is what to do with our ooys. Make school board attendance officers of them, of course. « £ 75 a year is what we ratepayers pay I Sergt. Matthews—or at least the school managers do —for his (shall I say) sinecure? I Next to this comes a school caretaker. The Penarth School Board pays Mr Walker 28/- a week, besides giving him a house rent free, gas, coal, fire- wood, and a garden in which to grow his own vegetables. Oh for a vacancy Added to this, a uniform, made at Davien and Sherwood's (costing X4 15s) is thrown in. 0 0 0 It is said a member has given notice that Sergt. Matthews be also provided with a suitable uniform, the cost of which will be defiayed privately amongst the members. 0 As a set-off it must not be forgotten that the Board is altogether reckless financially. Retrenchment and reform must come in somewhere- Just so. Dock the teachers' salaries- £ 80 a year is quite enough, or ought to be. for a cert.ific.ited assistant master. The idea of his wanting more .000 So hard up has the School Board become that unlike past actions, (perhaps fearful of the interest on that overdraft) the cheque for the teachers'salaries for July will not be paid them till the expiration of that month. And yet the school ''breaks up" on the 19th inst. Oh ye gods ard little fishes. Haste, November, haste. 'Tis' time this Board was interred. ooo Mr Mortimer liave "a to thank for the initiation of the series of weekly promenade concerts which are being .given in the Windsor Gardens of a Wednesday evening. The ends have certainly justified the means. () o. o The Divine Sarah" drove over to Fenarth last Sunday and took tea at the Esplanade Hotel. Mr Kerpen is so proud of the fact that he has had her autograph excised from the visitors' booK. mounted and framed. This may be seen among the penates of the genial proprietor. m =-=:=-=- It is noteworthy that Joe Chamberlain is the best abused and best hated public man of the day. Scarcely a political meeting is held where that talis. manic name is not mentioned, Scarcely a day passes without the Press having a go at him one way or the other. Verily, his name is one to conjure with! These facts, however, are the greatest tribute to his magnificent genius and personality. ooo At the Liberals' private meeting on Wednesday night, presided over by Mr Pyke Thompson, there was a veiy moot point raised as to who should occupy the chair on Friday night on the occasion of Mr A. J; Williams' first meeting in Penarth. Mr Clifford Cory was suggested by one, and Mr Lewis Williams by another. A rare compliment to local Rads, forsooth! If yours truly—Q.Q.Q.—were approached in the right spirit, and—ahem !—squared, well, he might capitu- late-and the trick would be done with universal satisfaction, and with quite another 500 majority secured. Verb sap- ooo Mr T. J. Hughes, Bridgend, speaking at the Liberal meeting on Wednesday, made a capital hit about the naked truth. In spraking of the Tories being so fond of telling the naked truth, he illustra- ted his meaning by referring to an Irishmau, who, to avoid being taken by the police, took to a boat in a nude condition, under the impression that he was thus disguising himself. Paddy's attempt at disguise was quite in consonance with the origin of the phrase "naked truth, The fable says Truth and Falsehood went bathing. Falsehood came firl:lt out of the water, and dressed herself in Truth's garments, Truth, unwilling to take those of falsehood, went naked. Mr Hughes went on to show, ex parte, of course, that the Tory garb still clothed old Falsehood. 0 0 0 Apropos of Party strength in Penarth, I have since learnt that in 1892, this portion of South Glamorgan polled 55 per cent for the Radicals.
