Notes and Comments. SCHOOL BOARD ELECTION, THE eighth triennial election of the Penarth School n Board took place last Friday. For eighteen *)• o years in succession Mr Llewellyn has sat at the Board table, and now he has been ejected for another period. The election in itself was fought.under extra- ordinary circumstances. For the first time in the his- tory of the Board politics were introduced, whilst there was a division in the ranks of the Undenomiua- tionalists, occasioned by the unsatisfactoiy position taken up by Mr G C. Thompson. Then it was so late when the attempt was made to run new candi- dates, that it was felt by many that it would be better to make an effort to heal the breach. It was evident, however, to all who took any active part m tne contest, that this could not be effectively done, I and ali ft-It that the position of the Undenomina- tionalists was exceedingly shaky and the result veiy doubtful. In the end there was not much to com- plain of. for although Mr Thompson was deserted, one of the churcb party, viz., Mr Snell, fared even worse, snowing- that there was a lack of unity, even between Churchmen Jlnd Conservatives. It was almost every- where confidently anticipated that Mr Sam Thomas would heaci trie poll, and that Mr Llewellyn, Mr j Lloydj and tne Rector, would run him very close for I ) second place, but few expected that Dr Aitken would obtain third honours. and seme went so far as to pre- t diet for him a crushing defeat, a regular extinguisher. I Mr Riches was known to be a strong' candidate forhil party, but on the other hand, as Mr Emlyn Jones had not previously interssted himself in public iiiattersi- it was not known what his influence was. There is no doubt that Mr Llewellyn and Mr Sam Thomas would have been very much higher on the list of the elected had it not been that, for the sake of their weaken brethren, they had asked many of the electors to poll | entirely for Messrs Jones and Thompson. A com* I parison of figures show that whilst the four Undea nommationalists, Messrs Thomas, LlewelJvn, Jones and Thompson, received together 3.272 votes, the three Churchmen, Messrs Sweet-Escott Snell and Riches, with Mr Lloyd, who ran separately, and who received more votes than either of the Church party, only obtained 3,190 votes. Of the three Unsectarians and the three Ghurohmeu elected, the former received a total of 2,603 votes, .and the latter, 2,592. Dr Aitken, it is stated, has to thank the plumpers for his position on the Board, for it appears that in this way he received over 420 votes. Now that the election is over, workers will be able calmly and quietly to review the work of the past few weeks, and probably a few lessons will be gathered which will be helpful in time that is to come. \Ve hope the new Board will work amicably together, and that their first study will be the good of the children.

W. J. Rogers Limited, Jacob Street Brewery, Bristol. We are informed by the Secretary to this Company that, subject to audit, the accounts for the year ended 30th September, 189;), show that after providing for all outgoings such as Depreciations, Reserves and Debenture interest, and paying substantial dividends on the Ordinaiy and Preference Shares (the whole of both of 'which are held by the Chairman and his lamily) a Cash Bonus of no less than 8 per cent will be at once paid to the share-holding customers calculated upon their business done witl/dw btewery during the year. this Scheme, any publican or wholesale beer dealer hnvinir paid say X200 will get one having paid £300 will get, £24., while anyone whose payments have been £10uO will get f80, aud so on, from the smallest to the largest customer in proportion for beer bought and paid for during the Company's financial year from the 1st October, 1894. to 30th September, 1 895, in each case by reason of his holding- Ten One Pound Traders Shares, to which number he is limited, and on which he has a separate and fixed dividend of Five Per Cent Per Antrum, as provided by the Articl-iS of Association, so that it is to the interest l of every share-holding customer to trade-as largely a? possible with the Brewery and to intioduce as mauy I new share-holding customers as he can, and thereby ~ive tne Mi-dcm tinit support which its liberality justifies. The conviceraoie enlargements of the Biewery during the last few years enable inct eased tirade to be earned on at Very more expense, and conse, quentiy applications for these snares from license* holders will be favourably entertained until the output capacity of the Btewery has been reached,
