Total Abstinence Federation. The weekly meeting of this Society was held in the Windsor Road Congregational School-room, on Wednesday evening. There was only a moderate attendance, doubtless owing to the entertainment at the hal', and a meeting of Sunday School teachers at Stanwell Road Baptist Chapel. The chair was taken by Mr Alfred Holman. The proceedings opened with the singing of a hymn which was followed by Z5 the reading of the 34th Psalm and prayer by Mr Bishop- Another hymn, and the Chairman gave a short but telling address. Miss Gertie Williams very sweetly rendered the solo Flee as a bird," and the Rev. H. Harding delivered a powerful speech, dealing principally with the science of temperance. Prelimin- ary (o his address he referred to the establishment of the Temperance Monthly, which he felt sure had bad something to do with rousing the temperance workers of Penarth. He felt glad the Total Absti- nence Federation had been established, and he most heartily congratulated the Blue Ribbon Choir upon the p: ogress it had made. It was most pleasing to see so many young people banded together, and he thought they would become a great power for good. He was also glad to hear it whispered that a Temper- ance Hall was to be erected (applause.) There was a great need for this, and it would doubtless greatly strengthen the temperance cause. (Mr Harding's address on the Science of Temperance will be published in the Tcmperance Monthly.) During the collection the Choir sang another hymn, and Miss Emily Pearn recited 11 Little Flo," for which she was fery warmly applauded. Mr (ieo. Pike said he should hold over his speech until a occasion, as the time was so far advanced, but he would like to say if we could only get people to ponder over the drink question we should1 very s.)on see a different state of things in the •uniry. He then gave illustrations of what had been ae through pondering, citing the cases of John att, who made the first steam engine, and Richard vesey, who established the first total abstinence ;iety. A v-.te of thinks to the friends for the use of the hoolroom, and the benediction closed the meeting.
Sunday Evening Popular Services. A number of gentlemen in Penarth have, for the o past two or three seasons, bad under consideration, the question of providing Sunday evening popular services for the people, but the great difficulty has been to provide a united choir which could assist in the musical portion of such a service. It was suggested that the various choirs should be asked to give their services in turn, but upon consid- eration, it was thought that this would not be advisable in the interests of the Churches, so it was abandoned, and the question of the services was allowed to drop. Now, however, that the Penarth and District Blue Ribbon Choir has høn organised, the question has been revived, and a deputation has waited upon the conductor, urging him to bring the matter before the Choir. At a meeting of the Choir committee on Tuesday evening it was fully discussed, and it was resolved to recommend the Choir to under- take the services, provided the ministers of the town can be prevailed upon to give in turn, a short gospel address. It is not, intended to make tna services a series of entertainments, for the promoters have something higher in view, but to make them bright and attractive. The Choir will render some simple music, there will be one or two solos, and occasionally a recitation, with an address of about 10 or 15 minutes, and it is hoped there will be some good hearty con- gregational singing. It is well known that there are hundreds ot young people of a Sunday evening, especially, who have nowhere to go after the usual services. These walk our streets, and crowd our promenade in summer, but in the winter, with its wet and cold nights, it is felt they would prefer attending a bright service to walking about, endangering their health. The first service will probably be held on December 1, in Andrews' large hall, commencing at 8.15. Of course there will be expenses—the use of the hall, the hire of an instrument, hymn sheets, &c., and to meet these, collections will be made. Should the expanses be aefrayed, it is anticipated that there will be no difficulty in continuing the services weekly throughout the winter months.
Penarth Police CoiFt. AN EX-CARDIFF CONSTABLE'S TROUBLE. On Wednesday at Penarth Police Court-before Major Thornley and Mr W. B. Gibbs- Thomas Smith, licensee of the Eel Lion Inn, Bonvilstone, was charged with supplying drink to a drunken man on the 11th October last. Mr T. H. Belcher, who appeared in defendant's behalf, admitted a technical offence, but narrated the circumstance under which it occurred, and urged these as an excuse. Defendant had been for many years a very respected member of the Cardiff borough police force. This position he was obliged to resign owing to failing health, and he subsequently went to live at this public-house with his wife- He (Mr Belcher) was sorry to relate, however, that his health continued to break down, and on the day that the present offence was committed his wife, who usually managed the business, was away in Cardiff consulting Dr Wallace, who had been in the habit of attending him for many years past. Mrs Smith's mother was in charge of the premises during her daughter's absence and the old lady failed to notice the man's state before the police entered and drew her attention to him. To indicate the serious state of defendant's health, Mr Belcher stated that Mr Smith had to leave the house the next day and was placed under the care of his friends, and he now alõlked that the licence should be transferred to his wife. The Magistrates, without hearing any evidence, accepted Mr Belcher's frank statement and ordered a penalty of 20s. including costs, and granted th r*
