GRAND DISPLAY OF FIREWORKS. 4- FORECAST—SOME LIBERAL RED PUTS IN THE SHADE THE TORY BLUE. Soon after twelve o'clock, last Saturday morning, Crowds of people began to assemble in the vicinity of the Bus office, and in Windsor Road. It was a Cc weary waiting," but the time was wiled away in good humoured banter and political argument. The pros. and coms. of the great measures placed before the country by the late Liberal Government were dis- cussed, and the ordinary intelligent man was able to gain much useful information. The Local Veto Bill Was one of the principle topics of conversation, and it was surprising to find what ignorance prevails as to the object of the proposed treasure, and the machinery by which it would have been worked had it. become law. But whilst these arguments were going on there were others waiting for the verdict," who looked almost as though it were to them a question of life or death. They were too excited to enter into dis- cussion, and when the first news arrived, although no gnres were given, a pang of sorrow shot through their very frame. ° «nS"OU8 ™essages were received giving reported .hnwlrb' T^1Ch Varied from a majo»'ty of 125 to 640, en e actual and official declaration was made QUIN (C) 5747 V\ ILLIAMS (L) 4922 Conservative majority 825 fon,ted' and the Liberals calmly over thl-r rl ?*at t0 their homes to Pouder over their le.erse not, however, to say die but to arise,into newness of lite. It soon got whispered round, that the "gallant" Major vvas coming over to Ppn»rtk A m ■ a, Br 10 ^enaitn. to congratulate 4he lones upon their great victory. A few of the leading men of the party were whipped up. Noticea ■were poMed on the windows of the Committee room, and the magic-lantern house in Windsor Road, and when the carriage arrived with Major Quin, Lady Eva and little Tommy Atkins'" with Mr Cousins, there were about 500 persons present. It was amusing to watch one man for some time previous to the arrival of the party, in his frantic efforts to get a number of men idiotic enough to go down the road, and drag the carriage up. At length, just as the carriage came In I sight, he emerged from the St. Fagans, and then with his" dumb-driven catte," proceeded to the foot of Arcot Street, where the carriage was stopped, the horses taken out, and these men donned the harness, and brought the party to the place of meeting, where they were received by the leaders of the party amid the cheering crowd. One old lady looking on the scene, said, có Look, they have taken out the horses, and put a dozen asses in instead," The balcony over Mr King's shop was set apart for the use of ladies only, whilst peering out of the window over the Committee Room, were a number of gentlemen, including our inimitable friend with the white hat- One of the crowd cried out Oh where did he get that hat ? whilst another characterised the scene as a "Punch and Judy Show." When the Major was trying to speak, from one part of the bew window, the hat was being waved at another part, and the owner was shouting out for cheers. At length Mr Milburn peebed round the corner, and then putting out his hand, checked the frantic gestures of the man with the white hat, whilst, apparently some- one from behind, pulled him inside. At all events he suddenly disappeared. The Major made a short speech, in which he declared that his election was entirely due to Penartb. Other speakers were Messrs Cousins, Riches, Millburn and Jennings. The Major then introduced his wife, Lady Eva, and his son, whom be designated little Tommy Atkins." After more cheering, the company withdrew, but before leaving the building they joined in singing "Rule Britannia," and the National Anthem. In the evening a crowd assembled in Windsor Road when there was a "grand pyrotechnic display," which consisted of blue lights, crackers, sky rockets, and Roman candles- One of the crowd got a large quantity of red powder and set fire to it. This had the effect of brilliantly illuminating the whole district, and though the Tories lit blue powder, it only reflected a distance of two or three yards. This brilliant red light was declared to be a forecast of the future of South Glamorgan, when the present Tory win will be as only one little dark speck in the history of a great constituency.

U hit-Chat. BY RAMBLING TOMMY. Let me call the attention of my readers to the Penartb, Cogan and Llandough Working Men's Horticultural Society's Exhibition which will take place on the 21st of August, in the Cogan Board Schools, and the playground adjoining. Seven years ago this Society was started, and it has done excellent work, and I am glad to be able to record that each year the Committee has been able to add a little to the fund which stands to their credit at the bank. ooo Each year the Show has increased in importance and the prize list has grown larger and larger, until now it announces prizes to the value of £ 100. Last year the Committee ventured to include in its pro- gramme, homt industries, and cage birds, and so successful were these departments, that it was not only resolved to continue to offer prizes for these special features, but it was determined to increase the ¡ classes, and to open one section of the bird show to 'I the United Kingdom, and we understand that applica- tions are being made from all parts of the countfy for I Schedules- 0 0 0 During the afternoon there will be an interesting ambulance competition. I hope this will direct the attention of the public to the various ambulance classes which are held in the district, and I feel sure it will do more to show the necessity of every man and woman becoming acquainted with the first steps which ought to be adopted in the case of accident, than any number of speeches. OOO The object of the Horticultural Society, with tbe Allotments Society, is the elevation of working men, j and I know of some who bless tbe day when both j were established. Mr R. A. Lewis, who was practi- j cally the founder of the Horticultural Society, and who officiated for six years as Secretary, resigned that position lnet year, but a most energetic succe-sor was found in Mr Jno. H, Hall, and he is patting forth every effort to make this year's Show a greater success than any of its predecessors. May he meet with the success he desires and deserves. o J A meeting of Liberals will be held in Andrewsi n Lessp.r Hall at 7.30. next Wednesday. o 0 < The Cogan Methodist Church Anniversary will be held next Sunday week. The preachers will be the Rev C. J. Butcher and Mr Robert Bird, motnmgand evemrg respectively, whilst in tbe afternoon, at a popular service, the Rev W. G. Davies will give an address. Th popular choir, conducted by Mr J. Ff Proud, will render anthems at each service. o 0 0 The Rev G. C. Percival has been appointed to the charge of the Cogan and Grangetown Methodist Churches. 0 0 9 The annual report of the B.W.T.A. has just been issued. It tells of last year's work, and shows a satisfactory balance sheet. ooo 11 Morning Concerts on the Pier have been started, in addition to the evening programme. 004» Within five minutes after the official result of the South Glamorgan Election was whispered through the telephone last Saturday morning, copies of the second edition of the Penarth Chronicle were on sale in the streets, and so great was the demand that in a short space of time it became necessary to print a third edition. » o o Penarth has aptly been termed a nursery for police* men. On Wednesday morning, at its police court, two infants named Bolton and Langford, aged respec- tively, 5 and 6, were arraigned on a charge of wilful damage. With due solemnity they were put into the box, but subsequently had to be elevated considerable 'ere the magisterial eye could focus them. "Take them home and correct them yourselves," said Major Thornlev to the maternal guardians of these terrible specimens ol juvenile depravity. V 0 0 Any enthusiastic Welsh bacteriologist wishing to explore "fresh woods and pastures né'w," in the realms of germs and baccilii would do well to apply for the Bible used at the Penarth Police Station. Not only the book itself, but also its paper covering fg hoary with bald antiquity," and—ahem! ■i <

Whilst we have been resting on our oars. and sleepirg, the foe has bs3n at work, find faking advantage of our weakness has struck the blow which has laid us in the dust. But we will not say die. We shall arise again, and scatter those who, to-day, gloat over the temporary victory they have won. A meeting will be held in Andrews' Lesser Hall, next Wednes- day, to which all true-hearted Liberals are invited The sack-cloth willbe thrown off, and then we shall lift up our heada, feeling thankful that there area few valiant soldiers left who, though they may have Tories to the right of them, Unionists to the left of them, and faithless Liberals in front of them, will nevertheless be prepared when the proper day arrives, to make a gallant charge, sweeping down the foe and riding on to a great and glorious victory.
