Correspondence. THE LIBERAL "T WO HUNDRED." To the Editor of the Penarth Chronicle. Sir,-I was present at the meeting of the Liberal "Two Hundred" held on Saturday night last, and was surprised to learn that it had been considered ad- visable to elect a secretary and also an assistant-sec- retary. The question of paying- the secretary was referred to, and I quite agree with what was said, that services rendered should be paid for. I do not know whether it is intended to fix a salary for the assistant-secretary as well as for the one who occupies the more responsible position, but I hope not. In the interests of the association I think it vrould be far better to elect one officer,and hold him responsible for the due performance of all secretarial duties, paying him a proper salary, but if he should find an assist- ant necessary, that he (the secretary) employ one, and pay him out of his own fees. It would be better to pay one maD. well than to inadequately pay two, and find the work only half done. I have nothing against the gentleman elected as assistant-secretary lie may be as good or better than the secretary for aught I know, but I am anxious that the work should be done thoroughly, and that no chance shall be given, in case of neglect, for the blame to be saddled upon the one or the other's shoulders as an excuse. If it be pos- sible let us pay one man sufficiently well to enable him to look upon this work as his chief occupation, other engagements or employment to be subservient. I feel sure this must be done if we ever hope to regain our lost position. This" Two Hundred" must be prepared for other work than Parliamentary elections. District Council, County Council, and School Board elections will have to be fought on politicallineEl. We must always have our armour bright, and it will be the secretary who, to a great extent, will have to do. tEe polishing. i Yours truly, LIBERAL.

Prevention of Cruelty to Children. EFFORTS TO RAISE £ 40,000. LADY WINDSOR AND A PROPOSED BAZAAR. On Monday, a meeting of ladies and gentlemen, convened by Lady Windsor, was held in the Park Hall, Cardiff, for the purpose of considering he ad. visability of holding a bazaar at Cardiff in aid of the funds of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. Lord Windsor presided, and amongst those also present were Lady Windsor. Lady Hill, Lady Leeds, the Mayoress of Cardiff (Mrs Carey), Mrs Grover Clydach Court, Pontypridd, and the Misses Grover, Mrs W. Morgan (Cardiff), Mrs Sweet-Escott and Miss M. Sweet-Escott (Penarth), Mrs Gwilym Williams (Miskin Manor), Mrs W. H. Morgan (Pontypridi), Mrs David (St. Fagan's), Mrs Jones-Powell (Pontypridd), Mrs Spickett (Pontypridd), Mrs Taylor, Mrs Franklen Evans (Castleton), Mrs Seargeaunt (Cardiff), Mrs Arthur (Penarth), Mrs C. T. Vachell, Mrs Nell and Miss Nell, Mrs Fredk. Edwards, Mrs Kemeys-Tynte, Mrs F. Evans, Mra L. Forrest, Miss A. Evans, MidS Maclean. Mrs H. Rees Jones, Miss Maud Rees,Jones, Mrs Handford, Miss Lipscomb, Mrs Insole, Mr Walter Insole, Mrs God- frey Clark, Mrs Powell-Morgan, Mrs Brocking (Frome). Miss Singleton, Miss Tregeiles (Penarth), Mrs C. W. H. Browne (Penarth), Mrs Beasley and Miss Beasley (Penarth), Mrs P. Morel (Penarth), Mrs Hibbert (Penarth), Mr Mark Whitwell (Bristol), Mr H. M. Thompson (Cardiff), Mr R. R, Chalk (sec- retary of the Pontypridd Branch), and Mr Donald Maclean (secretary of the Cardiff Branch). The Chairman, in opening the proceedings, ex- pressed regret that Miss England, who represented the head society, could not be present, by reason of a breakdown on the railway, and explained that there was now a movement to get up bazaars in every single county, if possible, and obtain the interest of all influential people in order to make those bazaars a success. He believed bazaais would be held in York- shire and in London. There was no limit as to the time. but he thought it would be more helpful if all the bazaars were held throughout the country at the same time, or as near as possible. What they would have to decide was whether they, repre- senting the very important County of Glamor- gan, and he believed a wider area, should hold a bazaar' so as to raise a substantial sum from the district. He hoped the bazaar would be held so that it would not clash with the proposed Infirmary bazaor. Mr Donald Maclean stated that the reason for hold- ing bazaars in various parts of the country was that owing to the financial difhculties of the society there was likelihood of some of the branches being with- drawn unless aid were given. The idea was to estab- lish a reserve fund of £ 40,000, and it bad been con- sidered that the best way to do no was to hold a series of bazaars to complete that worthy object. He had received letters fiom Lady Aberdare, Mrs Mackin- tosh of Mackintosh, Mrs Crawsbay Bailey, Mrs Jex Blake, Mrs J. H. Brain, Mrs Bage, Mrs John Duncan, Mrs Lascelles Carr, Mrs R. Cory, Mrs John Gunn, Mrs Marcus Gunn, Mrs Heathcote, Mrs Ingle- dew, Mrs Morgan Lindsay, Mrs Moxey, Mrs Thomp- son (St. John's Vicarage), Mrs T. Wallace, Mrs D. L Duncan, Mrs F. Evans, &c., all of whom sympathised with the object in view; and he noticed there were present also representatives from Bristol and other places in the West of England. So, as Lord Windsor bad remarked, the meeting was representative of more than Glamorgan. He did not think there could be very much difficulty in holding a very good bazaar in Cardiff. Mr Mark Whit will, Bristol, stated, in reply to the noble Chairman and the Secretary, that he could not hold any hope of the Bristolians giving any help to Cardiff, and that, besides, Cheltenham would be hold- ing a bazaar this year. Mr Chalk, hon. secretary of the Pontypridd branch, 1 promised support on behalf of Pontypridd and Mountain Ash, and he believed Newport would also cissist It was then decided, on the proposition of the Chairman, that a bazaar be held, provided a date could be fixed convenient to the snpportsrs of the society in Glamorganshire, Monmouthshire, and Somersetshire. A committee, comprising most of the ladies present, was appointed to fix a convenient date ib February, March, or April, 1896, and Mr Donald Maclean agreed to act as the hon. secretary. It was announced that promises to take up stalls had already been received from Lady Windsor, Lady Hill, Mrs Godfrey Clark, Mrs Gwilym Williams, Mrs Kemeva-Tynte, and Mrs Beasley; and also that Somerset would act along with Glamorgan in this matter. A vote of thanks to L )rd and Lady Windsor con- cluded the p. oseedings.
The Riots in China. j DIARY No. 2. KiA-TlNG Fu, June 15th, 1895, Dear Friends,-In my first eiary I gave you a de. tailed account of the riot. Now I must teU you how we fared afterwards- We had nice quarters in the magistrate's office. He did his very best to make us comfortable, and went to great expense in purchasing things for our comfort. On Saturday, at midnight, we were escorted out of the city. It was a strange scene. First of all the chair Coolies came for our twenty chairs, and the usual pushing, shouting, &c., went on as though we wanted to lettbe peopleknowwa were escaping. After we all were seated the order was given to start, and away we went out of our friendly quarters. Each chair had two runners and two soldiers in front. As we passed along the streets we observed men standing on guard at all the wooded barriers (I counted 10 barriers); on an average 12 men at each barrier. When we arrived the barriers were immediately thrown open, and we marched through without a question. When we arrived at the great east gate it was opened immediately, and we were carried on and on for about five li to a temple (the "God of Thunder") wheie our boats were anchored. What a strange sight it was—about 500 soldiers, yamen, runners, &c., with our chairs slowly wending our way along the river bank in the still- ness of the night. Every now and then the soldiers bayonets would flash in the moonlight, and the in. numerable paper lanterns added beauty to the scene. Thus we were turned out" of the city of Chen-ta, where the witnesses of Christ bad worked for about 13 years but we all realised that it was only for a short time, aud then we should be able to go again to that city, and we had faith to believe that still greater blessing was in store for that city, notwith- standing the darkness of the outlook now. I had hoped to stay at Chen-tu, but the officials objected, so I thought I would ask the Consul about it, and sent the following telegram:— British Consul, Ching-Chung. "BuiinesB rpquires one remain. Officials objéCt, Do you order me go ? Reply immediately. "VALE." We waited till next day expecting a reply, but none came. Just after the official sent for me. I went, and met the director of the telegraph office with my telegram in his band. He said he was very sorry he could not send my telegram as he had got orders from the Viceroy not to send any foreign tele- grams as war had again broken out between China and Japan. Of course, this was only a plan of theirs not to send it, so I said I did not mind as I had already decided to leave for Kia-ting. Now to re- turn to the river side. What a sight! Eleven boats were prepared for us, one large four-roomed boat, one three-roomed, two smaller, and seven ordinary boats for soldiers. As soon as we were on board, the Mandarin (who had escorted us) gave orders for the boats to start, so we slowly moved away from the shore, and then anchored below in a quiet spot to wait for the morning light. At dawn the next morn- ing we started on our journey for Kia-ting. Of course we badto keep very quiet on the way down, lest, as we passed the villages, the people should use up and cause trouble. After a very quiet journey of three days, we arrived here in peace. I got off here, and found Mr and Mrs Ririe and Miss Bridgwater in the magistrate's office also Mr and Mrs Squire. The rest of our party all went on their way to Ch'ong- Ch'ing, escorted by the soldiers from Ch'en-tu. I must not let this pass without saying a good word for the Eua Yang Rsiai mandarin. He acted a g«od part to us, providing us with all we needed, and paid for all the boats to Ch'ong-Ch'ing also provided us with 80,000 cash for our expenses; thus we have lacked nothing, and we have had much cause to praise the L-)td for all his tender love towards us. June 15th, Mr Waring, the K'iong Cheo evangelist, arrived, with Mrs Liol, Miss Naess, and Miss Nilson. We were glad to welcome them after all their danger- ous experiences. We are all very happy and quiet here at present. We do not know what we shall do in the future. We trust after a few days we shall be able to get back into our house again. The officials have had strict injunctions from the Viceroy to pro- tect all foreigners and punish all evil doers, so we trust the worst part is over now. Surely we can praise Him for all His wondrous care and love. Join with us in prayer and praise. Yours in Christ, JOSHUA VALE.
