SUDDEN DEATH OF A SEAMAN. ALCOHOLIC POISONING. James Cotton (38), a steward on board the ship Dunblane, lying beneath No. 29 tip at Barry new dock, was found dead in his bunk on Saturday morning. When he retired on the previous night he was apparently in his usual Mate ef health, and owing to his absence the cook (John Mardy) proceeded to his bunk, where he found the steward lif slose. The body was removed to the Mortuary, and on Monday morning an inquest was held before Mr E. B. Reece, cerener.—Evidence of identification was given by Mi Jenkin Evans, chief officer of the lÀip. Deceased came ou board on Friday sight about 11.30 in a very drunken state. When witness went to his bed, about two o'clock in the morning, deceased was lying on a settee, snoring aloud. At six o'clock the cook tried to wake deceased, who was then alive, but he failed to do, and at seven o'clock deceased was still in a deep slumber. An hour after- wards the chief engineer went below, and finding deceased cold, called witness, who discovered that he was dead. Cotton had only just joined the ship, but witness had known itiza for years as a very healthy man. addicted to drink.—John Moodie, the cook, gave evidence of his attempts to awaken deceased.— Dr Bray said, from an examination of the body, he was of opinion that death was due to eollapse from alcoholic poisoning.
ILL-TREATING AND TORTURING HORSES. THE FATE OF A "BLACKBIRD." WELL-MERITED PUNISHMENT. Fred Pearce, a middle-aged man, living in Daniel-street, Cadoxton, and a haulier by trade, was charged at the local police-court on Monday with causing a horse to suffer un- necessarily. -Police- constable Welsby deposed that on the let inst. he saw a black gelding in the wood at the top of Woodland-road, Barry Dock. It was lying on the ground, eating the bushes, and groaning. Although he had the aid of three men, witness failed to raise the horse up. He did his best to feed the animal, which was in a very poor condition. On the following day witness visited the spot in com- pany with Inspector Benford, R.S.P.C.A. The horse was still there and unable to get up. Ultimately, on the adviee of Mr R. W. Hall, veterinary surgeon, witness shot the animal.— Inspector Benford said that when he visited the animal it was unable to rise. He procured it some food, and made inquiries respecting the owner. The defendant Pearce was present when the animal was shot. A difficulty about the case was the ownership of the horse. A man named Smith, a travelling vanman, was summoned to appear before the court from Neath. A transaction transferring the horse from Smith to Pearee was alleged t ) have taken place but a short time before. Mr F. P. Jones-Lloyd represented Smith, and Mr A. Jackson the defendant.—Mr Jackson ques- tioned the last witness at some length regarding the ownership of the horse. According to witness, the horse was suffering from starvation and old age. Mr Reginald W. Hall, M.R.C.Y.S., deposed that when he saw the horse it was quite incapable, and suffering more or less all over the body. It would, in his opinion, have died in about four days' time. The horse had a shoe off, which, he presumed, was the cause of its falling down. The foot was diseased.—A boy named Charles Manley, of unkempt appear- ance, living at 33, Richard-street, Barry Dock, spoke of the business transaction between Pearce and Smith. He overheard a conversa- tion between them to the effect that Smith was to give 7s 6d and a "blackbird for a chesnut horse. Poarco told Smith to "swap" the ehesnut for the blackbird. Having done this, Smith then went away to Neath. -A bol named John Lappy, 17, Richard-street; Edward Poaroe, son of the defendant; and Jane Mollington also gave evidence, and Henry Smith, the man who had sold the horse, gave his statement of the transaction. The defendant: Yes, as soon as he knew the inspector had examined the blackbird he sent me the 7s 6d. (Laughter.) Mr Jones-Lloyd, on behalf of his client, asked for costs. He said it was the duty of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to have ascertained the owner of the horse. His client bad come from Neath. Mr Jones-Lloyd asked also for the solicitor's fee, but the magistrates oaly allowed the costs. Three previous convictions were proved against defendant, and one in Cardiff, and he was now fined L3, or a month's hard labour. Upon leaving the oourt prisoner looked round threateningly, and addressing somebody, presumably Police-constable Welsby, said I got that month from you." A man named John Rees, of respectable appearance, was also, on the evidence prin- cipally of Police-constable Welsby, convicted of ill-treating a horse, attached to a spring cart in Holton-road, on the 31st ult.-Inspector Ben- ford certified that the animal suffered badly, and this being his first offence, Rees was let off with a fine of 7 s 6d.
7: A FOWL ROBBERY. Mary Ann Sharp, a married woman, living a' 20, Tydfll-gfcreet, Barry Dock, was placed in the dock at the local police-court on M-nda? last charged with stealing a fowl, value 2B 9d, from the shop of Mr J. Webb, Holron- road, where she had gone on Saturday morning to purchase some carrots. The fowl was missel, and found by Polioe-constnble Gill in her house. Prisoner expressed her guilt, and de- clared that she had had some drink at the time. —The Bench sentenced her to H days' im- prisonment with hard labour on account of her previous bad character.

YR AELWYD GYMREIG. [DAW OLTOIAITH ALLTUD.] Rhai o Brif Ryfeloedd y Ganrif. Yn ystod y ganrif hon yr ydym yn cael hanes rhai o'r brwydrau mwyaf gwaedlyd a dinystriol a ymladdwyd erioed. Mor fuan ag 1806, ar y 14eg o Hydref, yr oedd tua chant a deg o filoedd ar faes brwydr Jena, a lladdwyd dros un fil ar ddeg ar hugain, pryd y gorchfygwyd y Prwsiaid gan y Ffrancod. Ar y 18fed o Mehefin, 1815, yn mrwydr Waterloo, yr oedd cant a deugain mil yn ymladd, a lladdwyd dros naw mil a deugain y diwrn,)d hwnw. Yn mrwydr Magenta, Mebefin 4, 1859, yr oedd cant a deg ar bugain o filoedd yn ymladd, pryd y gorchfygwyd yr Awstriaid gan y Ffrancod n'r Sardiniaid, ac y lladdwyd un fil ar hugain. Wedi hyny, yn mrwydr Sadowa, Gorphenaf 3, 1866, pan y gorcbfygwyd yr AwstriaiJ gan y Prwsiaid, lladdwyd tair mil ar ddeg ar hugain, a dywedir fod agos tri chan' mil yn ymladd. Eto, yn mrwydr Ffrainc a Germani. ar y 18fed o Awat, 1870, yr oedd agos pedwar can' mil yn ymladd yn Gravelotte, a Iladdwyd tri ugain a dwy o filoedd; ac eto yn Sedan, ar Meai laf, yr UD flwyddyn, yr oedd tri chant a pbedair ar ddeg o filoedd yn ymladd, a lladdwyd saith mil a deugain. Gallwn befyd alw sylw at frwydrau ofnadwy Bull Run yn y wlad hon, Gorpbenaf 21, 1861. Yr oedd tua tbri ugain mil yn ymladd; a lladdwyd pedair mil chwech chant a tbri ugain a phumtheg. Wedi hyny, Medi 17, 1862, yn mrwydr Antietam, lladdwyd un in ar ddeg ar hugain; ac yn mrwydr Gettyburc, Gorphensf 1-3, 1863, yr oedd cant a haner o filbedd yn yr ymdrechfa, a lladdwyd yn ymyl tn ugain mil. Er cynifer gofnodwyd uchod, nid ydynt ond rhan fechan o'r byn ellid gofnodi yn yatod y ganrif. Fa bryd y daw heddwch fel yr afon a chyfiawnder fel tonau'r mor ?

BARRY DISTRICT COUNCIL BURIAL WITHOUT CERTIFICATES. PROPOSED NEW OFFICIAL. The monthly meeting of the Barry Urban District Council was held in the Council Chamber, Gas and Water Offices, Barry Dock, on Monday evening last, under the presidency of Councillor J. H. Jose, J.P., the other members present being Councillor D. Morgan, W. Paterson, Alderman J. C. Meggitt, E. B. Smith-Jones, J. L. Davies, S. Barnett, Evan Jones, A. T. White, and J. A. Manaton. PRICE OF COKL. Councillor Barnett spoke on the price of coke. He referred to the resolution of the last Council meeting that the price of coke be raised Is 8d per ton, and said that it was a great shame poor people should be saddled with this new burden during the cold weather. The Chairman here called Mr Barnett to order, as the resolution he referred to was not a resolution of a committee, but of the Council, and, therefore, could not be rescinded without a notice of motion. THB BURIAL SCANDAL. Mr E. B. Smith-Jones called attention to the question which recently came up before the Council rt burying corpses without a certificate. He said that the Burial Board had fully enquired into the statement made by Mr James Jones, and that they were of opinion that the explanations were substantially correct. Mr Smith-Jones wished that the same publicity be given to the finding of the Burial Board as was given to the charge against Mr James Jones. GAS AND WATER COMMITTEE. Council Barnett proposed that the minutes of the Gas and Water Committee be referred back. He did so for the reason that the com- mittee had proposed raising the price of coke Is 8d per ton. He was quite in order in moving that the minutes be referred back. The Chairman: I will not rule you out of order. I am quite prepared to receive an amendment. I cannot, however, be expected to receive any adverse criticism on the minutes of the last Council meeting. Mr Barnett: I can't be out of order, as the minutes are not passed yet. The Chairman You have not given a reason yet why they should be rescinded. The refer- ence to coke is not in the Gas and Water Committee's minutes. Councillor White asked, with reference to the resolution that the tender of Mr A. H. Bletso be accepted for painting and other work to be carried out at the Gas and Water Offices, how it was that there was a difference of about S30 in the amounts of the tenders. He would like to look at a specification of the contracts. The accountant (Mr C. B. Brown) said that the principal item in the material was the new encruster. Mr White said it seemed to him to be a very large sum to pay for that material. It was a waste of £ 7 101 or £10. Mr Manaton asked how it would be if they accepted Mr Eletso's tender, and showed a specimen of the stuff to those who tendered for the work. Two shillings a yard was a lot of money to pay for an encruster. The Chairman pointed out that the Council knew that a sub-committee bad been appointed, who went into the matter. Mr White I was on the sub-committee, but I have no recollection of recommending 2s a yard. Mr Meggitt suggested that it would be wiser to get a better encruster. The Chairman said it would save time if they accepted Mr Bletso's tender, subject to the approval of the sub-committee. Mr Smith-Jones said it was outrageous to aek £ 15 or JE20 for doing four rooms. He thought it best that the sub-committee should meet Mr Bletso and come to some understanding. The report was passed subject to this. GAS AND WATER OFFICIALS. Councillor Smith-Jones referred to the minute that the committee considered the question of having one head of the gas and water undertakings referred to them by the Council, and said it was very opportune to consider any such change as had been referred to the committee in connection with their department. There was no reason, as the committee had done, for saying that the subject was not opportune. They ought especially to take into account the whole of the management when they were increasing their expenditure to mch an extent. It would be greatly to the interests of the town if the whole management was under one bead. This would prevent the utinecesgary overlapping which existed. They were not only duplicating officials, but staffs, and a great deal of the loss which occurred in that department was dub to the system of management. If there was less overlapping, he thought there would be less unnecessary expense, and he was of opinion tbst the com- mittee's reason for not considering the question was no reason at all. He, therefore, moved that the committee again consider the matter, and give them a fuller report. Mr D. Morgan seconded, but the motion was not carried. MOXON-STREET IMPROVEMENT. Councillor Barnett moved for the elimination of the minute of the surveyor reporting the result of his interview with Mr Dando as to the improvement of Moxon-street, Cadoxton, which the committee, owing to the high price amkod by Mr Dando — £ 220 — recommended should be abandoned. Mr Barnett asked if they had had a special valuer to value the land. He suggested that the negotiations be left to arbitrators outside the Council. Mr J. L. Davies seconded the motion, which the Council decided to adopt. ANTIQUE FIRE ESCAPE. Councillor Barnett proposed a slight addition to a minute of the Public Works Committee, in which the surveyor submitted repairs to street water vans and carts, and asked that the fire- escape at Cadoxton undergo a renovating process. This was agreed to. INCANDZGCENT V. OA8 LIGHT. The following resolution appears in the Health Committee's minutes: — That the sur- veyor be instructed to place 90 incandescent burners on the lamps asor.ginally intended, the lanterns bting similar to the one ot-vosite the District Council Offices in Holton-road." Th elimination of this resolution Councillor Barnett next moved. He said that for six months the light had been tried in Charles-street, Cardiff, and bad failed The light was very pale, and the mantles fragile. He was confident that the Council would be wasting the money of the ratepayers if they adopted that light generally. Mr Manaton asked what would be the cost of putting the lamp up. The Chairman said there would be a saving of at least 50 per cent in gas. Councillors Manaton, Barnett, and Davies spoke against the newer light, the former seconding Mr Barnett's motion. Mr bmith-Jones proposed, as an amendment, that the report be sent back to the committee, and that the lamp be given another trial. This was resolved, and it was decided to decide upon the comparative merits of the old and new lights at the April meeting, after the lamp had experienced the violent opposition of the March blabtg. INSPECTORS' SALARIES. At the last Health Committee meeting, Inspector Summerfield applied for an increasa of ralary, but the Committee instructed him to prepare a return of the salaries paid to the in- spectors in different parts of the aguntry. Alderman Meggitt now said it was the usual custom for the clerk to obtain those figures. It seemed to him a rather undignified position for the Council, and he moved that the clerk make the necessary inquiries. This was decided on. THE MUNICIPALISED ACCIDENT WARD. The Hospital Committee met on Wednesday afternoon, when it was resolved that Miss Blanche Sykes, the superintendent of the Nursing Institute, be offered the post of charge nurse at the Accident Ward, Kingsland-crescent, which will be taken over by the Council on the 1st March next. Two assistant nurses were also allowed at a salary of JE25 per annum each and uniform.—Mr Edward Rees' valuation of the furniture of the Ward was jC231 lô. 7d, and Dr King's valuation of the surgical instru- ments L30.-These recommendations of the committee were adopted. SMALL-POX HOSPITAL. The Chairman next moved the following resolution "That the resolutioa passed some time age as to abandoning the erection of the small-pox hospital be rescinded." Mr Jose said it had come to their knowledge that it was practically impossible for them to remove the present small-pox building which was situate near the sanatorium. They had now found that it was absolutely necessary, if they were to move with the times, that they have a building much superior to the present one. The want of greater accommodation was, and had been, felt within the last two or three months, and he trusted the Council would rescind the resolution and take into considera- tion the construction of a new one. A more permanent building would be more creditable to the town than the unsightly structure which at present adorned it. Councillor Paterson seconded the resolution, and condemned a wooden structure as danger- ous to Invalids. Alderman Meggitt suggested an iron building for the present, for the sake of economy. The building, if proceeded with, would cost about £10,000, besides a large sum for other things. The Chairman said there aeemed to be differences of opinion as to whether they could build a portion of the building. The Clerk said the County Council would not pay their portion of the cost if only a portion of the building was erected. Ultimately it was decided to refer the subjoot back to the Health Committee. READING-ROOM ACCOMMODATION. On the motion of Mr W. Paterson, seconded by Mr Evan Jones, it was decided that Messrs D. Morgan and J. A Manaton be a sub- committee to make additional reading-room accommodation at Barry Dock and make the necessary arrangements with the Libraries Committee as to rent, &c. ARE MARIONETTES THEATRICALS? Mr D'Arc. the celebrated marionette show proprietor, wrote asking for permission to con- duct his "show" in the Old Empire Hall, Thompson-street, which was not licensed for theatrical plays. The Chairman averred that it was a danger- ous precedent to treat with anyone but the owners of theae places, and he moved that the application be refused. Mr D. Morgan seconded. -Carried.
THE HEADLESS FIRE BRIGADE. POSITION OF MATTERS NOW. AN UNPLEASANT PROSPECT. At the monthly meeting of the Barry District Council on Monday evening the Chairman reported on the position of matters in relation to the Barry Volunteer Fire Brigade. He said that the Council had received letters from Mr J. G. Walliker and Mr P. P. Jones-Lloyd, in which these gentlemen tendered their resigna- tions as captain and secretary of the Volunteer Fire Brigade respectively. As requested by the Health Committee, he (the chairman) had seen Mr Walliker at the docks, and nothing would induce him to resume his position. Mr Jones- Lloyd was also determined, and on the whole he (the chairman) felt that it was practically impossible for them to start a Volunteer Fire Brigade. It was for the Council and Health Committee to consider and do what it thought advisable should be done under the circum- stances. Mr E. B. Smith. Jones asked if the Council were committed to the elaboration of the scheme, for which Mr Walliker was principally responsible. The Chairman said that, as far as the uni- forms contract went, the Council would not get them before they had given the order foi them. The contracts had been signed. Mr Evan Jones wished to know what reasons the captain and secretary had for resigning, but the Chairman said that those had better not be gone into in public. The reading of the letters would not tend to harmonious feeling. The actions of councillors would always be criti- cised, however they tried to do their duty. Councillor Smith-Jones thereupon proposed that the matter be referred to the Health Committee, who had hitherto dealt with it. Mr A. T. White seconded. Mr S. Barnett proposedg as an amendment, that a special meeting of the Health Committee be called, but the resolution was carried.
==:= Barry District Nursing Association and Accident Hospital. GENERAL CHANGES. The monthly meeting of the Barry District Nursing Asiociation and Accident Hospital was held in the latter place on Tuesday afternoon, Dr Neale, J.P., presiding. There were also present Major-General Lee, J.P., Mr J. A. Hughes, Dr. Kelly, Mr J. Spargo, Mr C. Wiberg, and Mr Davies. The Secretary (Mr J. Arthur Hughes) roported that the overdraft at the bank was £1,106 16a 8d. The monthly report of the work of the in- stitutions was as follows :-Aceident Ward: remaining on books in December, 3 admissions during January, 9; discharged convalescent, 6; remaining in in January, 6; out-patients, 9. In the Nursing Association there had been 48 cases dealt with, and applications, 36-samely: convalescent, 26; removed for other cases, 1; deaths, 4; sent to hospital, 2; remaining on books, 51. Visits, 1,195. The total number of visits paid during an extension of work from November 30 to February 12, was 184.

BlRltY DOCK POLICE MONDAY. Before Celenel GUTHBII and Councillor J. H. Joss. me CANI. Mr A. Jaekson appeared for complainant in a case in which Mrs William Glavss sued for a separation erder from her husband on the greund of persistent cruelty. Mr F. P. Jones-Lloyd appeared for the defendant, who is an iron ship caulker at the decks.—Mr A. Jackson stated his case, but the magistrates dismissed it, on the ground that it did not eeme within the meaning of the Act, to de which the eemplainant would have to leave her husband. OHAROB OF THRIATS. Berita Phipps summoned her hnsband, Com Phippa, a riveter, for uiing threats againat her. Mr A. Jackson defended Phipps.It appeared from the evidence of complainant that on Friday, the 2nd inst, she was assaulted by defendant and driven oat of the house, to which she returned for the sake ef the children. She admitted that her husband had found a bettle of gin, which she had bought, not feeling well.—The husband went into the box and denied that he assaulted his wife. On one occassion he suspected that his wife was in- toxicated, and bad found a dezen empty bottles in her box.—The magistrates beund Phipps ever ia the sum of £10 for six months. A 8HAMWD BERGRANT. Mary McKenley, an apparently respectable woman, was charged with stealing three glasses, the property of Mr E. Williams, Vieteria Hotel, on Batarday night. Police-sergeant Gill said he was in Westell's confectionery shop about 11.30 p.m. the same time as prisoner. When the latter was leaving a glasi fell from her basket, and en exam- ining the pieces on .the floor, found the stamp ef the hotel upon one of them. This was suspicious, and on searching her house in George-street, wit- ness found a glass, also belonging to the hotel, and another was discovered beneath some groceries in the woman's banket. The glasses were together valued at le.-A fine of 6s was imposed. DISNONZXT VOYAQIK. Benjamin Kirk, a fireman, who served on board the < Munificent, was placed in the dock charged with stealing clothes belonging to two other mem- bers of the crew, by whom he was entrusted with the articles to take to a laundry. Prisoner, who could not be found for a time after leaving the ship, signed meanwhile 08 board the 8. 9 Pinemore, the .raD.por.Pelice-coa.Ultlo William Bvans (415) feand the clothes on board the Pinomore.- Prisoner fras sonteneed to 14 days' imprisonment with hard labour. OLLA PODRIDA. The law is made to keep people in order, other- wise we should have everybody talking about his own virtue. One or two appearances in a Police- court take this form of conceit out of a man very rapidly. In fact it ought to be held accessary that before a man is properly seasoned to act as sucb, he should make one or two appearances in a Police- court. Unfortunately, there are certain people in this district who consider it necessary to renew their manhood every week or no. Bight little pigs, contemned by Jews, were ■trolling on the highway tbe other day and enjoying the prospect. The owner, John David, was now floed 8" or Is a pig—Jehn MoKinlsy, distantly related to the American President, committed a nuisance, and Evan James ao obstruction, and both were now fined 61 each.-Dogm unmuzzled ia the district were not a few but few, we are glad to say, were caught. Of the latter George Butler, George Britton, Charles James, Henry Newman, James Hannon, William Henry Cex, Chas Jones. and James Cutter, were fined the usual penalty, namely, 5s for the first offence, and 7. 6d for the second. Chimney on are is not a very grave offence, and John Roberts willingly paid Is 6d as the price of the pleasure of seeing a little blaze up this woather. People who were at such a distance from their vehicles as not to have control over their horses were more numerous than tienal. A venerable man of the milkman order-a man who is a tremendous favourite with children, than which there is no more pleasant sharacteriatio-was charged on two eounts with offending in the above manner. On the 31st ult. and 5th inst Mr Browat, while delivering his milk, indiscreetly left his horse, which is an animal that would be aahamed to come before the court as a drunk and disorderly hor.e.-Ilr Brown left his ancient friend whilst serving his customers. He was fined 5s. in each case.-William Hill, Barry Island, was also fined 2a Od Charles Hardy, 7. 6d.—Charles Manley was fined 2s 6d for driving without lights. The most disgraceful mess which is part and parcel of olla pvdrida it, of course, that provided by those people who, through indiscretion or weakness of will, allow themselves to become no better in any respect than the dog without a muzzle, or the pigs straying ou the highway. The Turks abhor a drunken man, and the Jew abhors pigs, but we, enlightened Christians, pity the mil- guiaed individual who shuffles into the dook on Monday mornings. Alf. Davies was drunk in the Barry Hotiel on the 2nd inst, and was fined 5s. The Patrick Fitzgerald, a half-wit, was dumiaaeQ. The Chairman remarked to the defendant tnat e hoped he would refuse to take any more, ana tnat he would remember that who gave or offered him liquor were not his friends, frank Watkios and Joan Mausell wore fined 6s oaoh, Robert Lloyd was charged with the offence. Defendant, a young married man, was ejected from the Royal Hotel on the 3rd inst. H. said that, having been before the court once or twice before, the police had a grudge against him, and were continually waiting an opportunity to catch him slipping, as it were. Police-constables Hamlstt and Clinch gave evidence, after which a Mary Gibson, 15, Quarella- street, Cadoxton, said that when defendant left her hoase he was quite sober, and had only had two pints of beer. She could easily tell when he was druuk, because he kicked up such a row. Fined 5s.-Annia Huntley and Louisa Lane were also fined that amount, and Dan Healy and Alf Davies 71 6d. Fred Davies was fined 4s for hawkiag lavender in Holton-road without a license on Saturday night last.
BARRY TRADES AND LABOUR COUNCIL. THE PORTHKERRY FOOTPATHS. A TOWN'S MEETING SUGGESTED. The fortnightly meeting of the Barry Trades and Labour Council was held at the Glamorgan Restaurant, Thompson-street, Barry Dock, the President (Mr J. Hill) occupying the chair. It was decided to write to the various branches of the delegates asking them to subscribo one penny per head for the District Council elec- tion expenses. RAILWATM12C. The following letter was read from Mr Richard Evans, the general manager of the Barry Railway Company, in answer to the resolution passed by the Council that the Company would us* every endeavour to Battle, the dispute:- I am in receipt ef your letter of the 27th inst., and beg to say that that, as far as I am concerned, there has been no difficulty whatever in regard to my seeing the men, and I have no doubt that the interview will be arranged between the men and myeelf sometime this week." HALL FOR TH. PIOPLI. A letter was read from the secretary of the Friendly Societies' Council, stating that the Council was pleased at the manner in which the Trades Council had considered the subject of a friendly societies' hall. A short discussion afterwards took place on the subject of the letter. THE FOOTPATHS QUISTION. Mr J. Spargo said he had been instrmcted by his society to urge the necessity upon the Council of asking the District Council to call a town's meeting with reference to the Perthkerry footpaths question, and proposed the following resolution:— That a requisition, signed by an many rate- payers as possible, be presented by the deputa- tion of this Council to call upon the Chairman of the District Council to convene a town's meeting upon the question." This motion was seconded by Mr W. Lewis, and carried unanimously. T 8CHOOL BOARD. Referring to the recent re-eleetion of the Chairman of the School Board, Mr J. Spargo said that from time to time the Stonemasons' Society had disoussed the question of the Council's representative upon the School Board. They thought it lamentable that Mr Rees should have expressed himself, as he was reported to have done, that Mr Lowdon's resignltiozi would be a public calamity. He (Mr Spargo) was instructed, therefore, to propose That this Council regrets the action and vote ef Mr John Reee in the election of Chairman to the School Board, and propose it as a resolu- tioa." Mr S. C. McCutchin seconded, But after several members had spoken for and against, the resolution was withdrawn. MAY DAY DEMONMRATIoy. It was decided to ask two well-known speakers on labour questions to attend at next May Day demonstration.

WHO'S WHO" FOR 1900. VALUABLE BIOGRAPHICAL WORK. The condensed mass of varied information respecting persons who have come into promin- ence in every sphere of life during recent years, make a detailed review of this excellent work well nigh impossible. "Who's Who" is a work that has come to be regarded as indis- pensable for the man or woman who would know something of the lives and characters of those who play a great part upon the world's stage, whether in religion, politios, letters, war- fare, or peace, scienoe, or in the illimitable field where genius and merit find a place. Informa- tion, which must be obtained if the movemoBts of our time are to be understood, is given in the compendious volume for 1900, a copy of which is before us. The work is published by Kellin Adam and Charles Black, at 311 6d net, and is crammed full of useful data. It contains information respecting many local celebrities, and a careful scrutiny of he biographical particulars of each of these have been fruitless in the direction of finding any mis-statement that needs correction. Most sorupulous care must have been exercised in the compilation of such a mass of material, which is brought year by year quite up to date. The work is prob- ably known to most people at some time or other, and to etate that this year's volume is even more replete with information, ought to be sufficient guarantee that its sphere of useful- ness is thereby extended. By its means every personality that looms on the horizon of the public mind may be traced, and their geneolo- gical history recounted in a terse form very completely. No reader of the events of the day should, therefore, be without it.
