Gas & Water Chairmanship. -0: Tributes to Councillor Hogg. That Idle Sun Recorder. REVENUE FOR THE YEAR. Councillor W. R. Lee occupied the chair pro. tern., at the first meeting of the new ] Barry Gas and Water Committee on Mon- day evening, when there were also present Councillors G Wareham, J Felix Williams, John Williams, W Fowler, S R Jonas, J D .Watson, J T flagg, C B Griffiths, and John Jones. THE CHAIRMANSHIP. At the outset Councillor C. B. Griffiths said he had great pleasure in proposing that the retiring chairman, Mr J. T. Hogg, be asked to occupy the chair again for the ensuing year. He did so for several reasons. One of the chief reasons at this moment was that in the near luture, be hoped,—in fact, he was aimost led to believe,they should be called upon to deal with that very important question of soft water for Barry, and he thought the time was ripe tha the gentleman who occupied the chair of the Water Board Committee should also be the Chairman of the Gas and Water Committee. Mr Hogg had had the chairmanship of the Water Board Committee up to date, and he saw no reason to doubt that he would enjoy that also in the future. Councillor J. D. Watson, in seconding,! said he did so with great pleasure. Mr Hogg had filled the post with tact and ability. Councillor J. F. Williams, S. R. Jones, and G. Wareham supported. Councillor Fowlei, however, said that although he did not wish to sit under a better chairman than Mr Hogg, he was against the re-election, because he believed the chairmanship should go round. If Councillor Watson, as Mr S. R. Jones suggested, was by service entitled to it, he proposed Councillor Watson's election. Councillor J. D. Watson, however, de- clined, and Councillors John Jones and W. R. Lee, J.P., having supported Mr Hogg, the latter was elected, Councillor W. Fowier voting against, POLITE, BUT FIRM. Councillor J. T. Hogg, on occupying the chair, returned thanks for the honour, and hoped that the harmony which had during the past year characterised their proceedings would continue, and that as it was proposed to spend a good deal of money, he hoped every member of the Committee would feel their individual responsibility about the spending of every penny. COKE. It was reported that this was being bought as rapidly as it was made; there as only a very small surplus in stock. WHERE IS THE SUN? Councillor J. D. Watson said he had read in the HERALD that the sun record Was not being kept, or if it had been kept, the result was not published in the annual report of the Medical Officer of Health, as usual ? As Barry was a seaside resort, this was an important matter. Mr Franklin said they did take the record sometimes, but the instruments wanted re- setting. Whilst he had other things to attend to, he did not trouble about it. The Chairman When you get time, you do it ? Mr Franklin Yes. Councillor Watson Most other places do it, and publish the result in the daily papers. Mr Franklin I have considered it from a holiday point of view, but we cannot guarantee that the sun will be here when the visitors come. (Laughter.) The daily papers always charged for publishing the information. Councillor Watson moved that the record be kept, and Councillor Wareham seconded. Councillor Griffiths I support it, and if Mr Franklin has no time, I will go over and take it. (Laughter.) The motion was carried. WATER CONSUMPTION. A statement, issued by the Manager, showed that the consumption of water last year was at the average rate of 191- gallons per head per day, this being as low as it was in 1901. REVENUE RETURNS. Mr T. W. Lewis, brought forward his statement of the revenue for the year ended March 31st last, which showed an aggregate increase of SIL27. The revenue for ordin- ary gas meters had increased by £200, and for slot meters by L6oo, but there was a decrease of ,C400 in the sale of products, and a decrease of Zio5 in water receipts. In the gas receipts there was an increase of over 30 per cent. within ten years. ANNUAL CONTRACTS. Councillor C. B. Griffiths, in connection with these contracts, brought up a grievance. At present the hauliers engaged in work for the Council were paid at the rate of is 6d per week each less than the labourers, the former receiving 26s, and the latter 275 and an allowance ot 6d a week for oilskins. Considering the extra hours put in attend- ing to their horses, and the fact that they were also called upon to do Sunday work, this was unfair to the hauliers, and he moved that in the new contracts provision be made for this increase. Personally, he often felt that it was worth 30s to drive a good horse and jQ2 to drive a bad one. (Laughter.) Councillor J. Felix Williams seconded the proposition, and the motion was agreed to nem. con

Boatman Drowned. --0 Tragic Affair at Barry Island. LIFEBOAT RESCUE. EXCITING SCENES. A distressing drowning}fatality, recalling, in many of its sad features, the tragic occa- sion on which two Barry Island boatmen, named Hobbs and Holt, lost their lives three years ago, while out seeking," occurred in the Channel on Monday last. A heavy south-westerly gale was blowing in the afternoon, and the sea was very rough. Persons at Whitmore Bay, and the coast- guards at Nell's Point, Barry Island, were watching with bated breath a tiny craft with a lug sail attached, which was evi- dently in difficulties. Suddenly, when off Friar's Point, to the consternation of the coast watchers, the punt was seen to cap- size, and the two men in it temporarily dis- appeared, but were seen to frantically cling to the keel of the upturned boat in the raging sea. In a very short space of time, the lifeboat was manned, under Mr Evan Owen, the coxwain, and towed round Nell's Point. After drifting awhile to the west- ward, the lifeboat approached the punt, but by this time, all were disappointed to find there was only one man clinging to the keel, the other, thoroughly exhausted, having disappeared. In the nick of time, the survivor, George Searle, of Clive road, Barry Island, was hauled into the lifeboat, and landed at the Pierhead in an exhausted I state. The man drowned was Harry Knight, the son of Mr John Knight, boatman, of Dyfrig street, Barry Island. Knight's body was found early the next morning, about two o'clock, after the tide had receded some distance, by a young man named Alexander Taylor, of 247, I Holton-road, Barry Dock, directly opposite the spot where he was last seen clinging to the upturned boat. Knight was well- known in the district, was aSoccer foot- baller, and was a young boatman of 21 I years of age. At the inquest on Wednesday afternoon, Coastguardsman Cullinane related in a thrilling manner how he saw the two men in difficulties in the water. Mr D. Rees, the deputy divisional coro- ner, as George Searle was too unwell to attend, adjourned the inquest until Thurs- day next.
Carmel Chapel Anniversary --o- On Saturday evening, throughout Sunday, and Monday evening last, very successful anniversary services were held in connection with Carmel Welsh Wesleyan Chapel, Barry Dock, when inspiring sermons were preached to very large congregations by Rev Richard Jones, B.A., Criccieth. The collections were substantial.—On Wednesday the annual public tea was largely attended, and this was followed by a successful concert, a feature of the evening being the singing of the Romilly School Boys Choir con- ducted by Mr W. M. Williams.
COMING EVENTS. Forthcoming Entertainment at the Weston Hill Baptist Chapel. On Tuesday evening next, at Weston hill Baptist Church, an entertainment of a varied and interesting character will be given in connection with the Band of Hope. A sketch entitled The Outcast," will be an attractive feature, and there will be, in addition, action songs, solos, recitations and dialogues.
A Diabolical Action. The discovery was made recently that one of the lifebelts at the boathouse of the local lifeboat had been wantonly damaged in a manner that would have led to loss of life in the eyent of it being uted.
Mutual Congratulations. Free Church Council Topics. A meeting of the Barry Free Council was held at the English Baptist Schoolroom on Tuesday evening. Miss Jones (the president) occupied the chair, there being, among o'.hers, present— Re^s Aaron Davies, D.D.^Ben Evans, Jos. A. Dobson, Howell I Davies, B.Sc., and Dr Griffiths (lorwaid Movement), Messrs F. Stephen*, J. O. Davies, E. P. Roberts, -3. Hayes, N. Hughes, T. Jenkins, W. H. James. W. T. Medhurst, Felix Kingston, D. A. Evans, D. Davies (Golden Grove), R. Lewis (Barry Island), and Mr Robert Evans, hon. sec. It was intimated that the opposition to the proposed new licenses, and also the cinematograph Sunday pictures had been successful, the Rev Ben Evans remarking upon the success of the effort, It only proves that if we are united as Free Church- men, nothing could withstand us. The secretary, too, was a host in himself, and, in regard to these matters, was a man scout." (Hear, hear). Mr D. Rees, chief attendance officer, was appointed, in addition to the four already appointed, 0:1 the local Charity Organisa- tion Committee, but in the event of that gentleman being already a member, Mr R. Lewis (Barry Island) was provisionally selected. In reference to the proposed mission of the Rev Seth Joshua from September 17th to 26th, the Rev Aaron Davies, D.D., said that at present the missioner was at Dar- wen, where the converts could be numbered by the hundreds. The mission will take place in a central position-Holton-road Baptist Church being suggested—and the Executive Committee were empowered to make arrangements, and call any special meetings of the Council that are necessary.
Palm Sunday Scenes. -0- Disgraceful Abuse of the Custom. At a meeting of thejBarry Free Church Council on Tuesday, presided over by Miss Jones (the president), an important subject was discussed, which was initiated by Mr Robert Evans, the hon. secretary. Mr Evans said he had been urged by several persons to bring before the Council the disgraceful scenes which took place outside the Cemetery gates at Barry on Palm Sunday. It was a perfect Bedlam," said the speaker, and I think it is our duty to ask the local authority to close the cemetery on that day unless these scenes are discontinued. There were a number of hawkers, with traps, shouting their wares, and making the whole place like a fair. In the Rhondda, owing to these scenes, the Council decided to close the cemetery on Palm Sunday, with the result that people were, to-day, very pleased that such a step had been taken. Rev Ben Evans, Mr W. T. Medhurst, Mr J. O. Davies, Rev Aaron Davies, Mr F. Stephens, Mr T. %enkins, Rev Howell Davies, B.Sc., and others, took part in a general discussion, it being pointed out that some steps should be taken, in addition to the pulpit protests of the past, to educate public opinion on this matter. Eventually it was decided to make an appeal to the churches, with a view to approaching the District Council to do something to prevent a recurrence of these scenes.
Council at Church. -0 Municipal Sunday at Barry. Municipal Sunday, instituted two years ago in the District, was also observed on Sunday last, when the District Councillors, and chief Local Government officials at Barry, at the invitation of Councillor W. R. Lee, Barry's new Labour Chairman of the Council, attended divine service in ths morning at Trinity Presbyterian Church, Barry, of which place of worship the Chair- man is a member. The Councillors and Officials present were Messrs W. R. Lee, J.P., D. Lloyd, C. B. Griffiths, J. F. Williams, S. R. Jones, J. D. Watson, Jas. Jones. John Williams, J. T. Hogg, J. E. Levers, John Jones, Howell Williams, J. A. Manaton, T. Davies. and M. Nicholas. The officials were Messrs T. B. Tordoff, clerk E. E. Green and R. Treharne Rees, deputy-clerks J. C.

Barry Labour Exchange. ———— 0:0 ———— Opened on Monday. ACTIVITY OF LOCAL STAFF. Promptly at seven o'clock on Monday I morning the newly instilw ed Barry Labour Exchange was opened in the premises1 secured in Dock View-road, Barry Dock Mr F. W. J. Angus, who is in charge of I the premises, is assisted in his work by a junior clerk, and a messenger, and, the Exchange being on the telephone, the use- ful work to be accomplished by the Exchange will therefore be materially added to. At the time of opening, about half-a-dozen men registered themselves for employment, and a steady flow of men continued throughout the day. Although no local firms had notified the Exchange as as being in want of men, Mr Angus has been interviewing the various heads of works at the docks in order to enlist their sympathy with the objects of the Exchange, and doubtless in a few days the dual work of the new insti- tution will be in full swing. During Mon- day notices were posted up of a number of places vacant at Bristol, Birmingham, Southamp-on and other places, and it is to be hoped that the employers of labour will make the fullest and best use of the Exchange. -:0;- APPEAL TO THE GAS AND WATER COMMITTEE. Mr F, W. Angus, manager of the Barry Labour Exchange, which had opened that day, attended the Committee, and requested that as a public body they should set an example to private firms by regulating their labour through the Exchange. This was the only way to make it a success. The operations of the Exchange were lucidly explained, and he added that although Mr E. Lake, the general manager of the Barry Railway Co., was away ili, aL three de- partments every encouragement had been promised, but Mr Lake directed the policy of the Corppany, and would decide the matter upon his return. Councillor Fowler Is it right that men are asked at these Exchanges whether they were Trades' Unionists or not ? Mr Angus It is not my duty as a Board of Trade official to ask any such question. The only question for us is whether the man is unemployed or not. Councillor Fowler Suppose a man was sent" to Gloucester, and when he got there Trades' Unionists refused to work with him, there would be a strike, and all the expense of sending him there would go for nothing. Councillor John Jones Then what is the position—do you send men into a dis- trict where there is a strike amongst organised labour ? Mr Angus That position is being con- sidered by the Board of Trade, but I have a form to fill up in case of labour disputes, but how I am to deal with men in such cases I do not know until I have received instructions. A general discussion ensued, the Chair- man bringing the Committee to the point by remarking that they need not enter into the minutce of the question in deciding whether they should grant this request. In the past, however, they had found employment in the Gas and Water Depart- ment so popular that there was a rush for any vacancy. It was agreed to favour the principle by granting the request, and authorising the Manager to utilise the department in case of need.
Boy Scout Movement. Attitude of the Free Church Council At a meeting of the Barry Free Church Council on Tuesday evening, the question of appointing a representative on the local Com- mittee in charge of the Boy Scouts was broached on the receipt of a letter from Mr J. A. Hughes, solicitor. The Executive Com- mittee had previously considered the matter, and the Rev Ben Evans said that the attitude adopted was one to the effect that the Council should appoint a representative, and thus care- fully watch that the movement did not develope into militarism. Mr W. M. Davies said that the extent of the representation was quite inadequate, and pointed out that whereas the Ministers' Fraternal Association, composed of less than twenty members, had two representa- tives, the whole of the Churches affiliated with the Free Church Council, totalling several thousands, had only one representative. A discussion ensued, in the course of which the Rev Howell Davies declared that he had looked into the movement and found that it was undoubtedly military in its fundamental basis. Eventually the question was referred to a special meeting to be held on Tuesday week next.
A Successful Business. Mr J. W. RICHARDS, Shoeing and General Smith, at the completion of four years' success- ful business at Lower Guthrie street, Barry Dock (back of Ocean Buildings), desires to thank his numerous patrons for their support in the past, and assures them of his continued attention in future as a practical up-to-date farrier.

J.P., at the outset occupu the chair ai the first meeting of the .-v public Works Committee on Tuesday evening, there being also present Councillors John Williams, J. Marshall, C. B. t.irilfilhs, J. A. Manaton, F. Phillips, Howell Williams. M. Nicholas, G. Ware- hanl. P. J. O Donne! and D. Lloyd. THE NEW CHAIRMAN. At the outset Councillor Lee proposed that Councillor John Williams occupy the chair of the Public Works Committee for the ensuing year. Councillor E. Phillips seconded, and tlii, was car ried nem con. Councillor John Williams, Of. taking the chair, briefly returned thanks for the honour. PLANS SUB-COMMITTEE. Councillors John Williams. W. R. Lee, J. A. Manaton, C. B. Griffiths, and E. Phillips were appointed the Plans Sub- committee for the ensuing year. PLANS. The following plans were considered and passed Motor house, rear house in Romilly Park, for Mr F. W. Poole. Verandah to premises Paget road, Barry Island, for Mr Ri E. Davies. Corrugated iron building on Barry Estate for Town Temperance Band, at top of Trinity street TO MAKE-OR NOT TO MAKE. Mr J. A. Hughes attended on behalf of the Woodland Estate Company, Ltd., objecting to the carrying out of private street works in Byron street and Hanover street-two short roads connecting Glad- stone road to Woodland road. A large number of the owners of houses in Gladstone road had, however, sent a petition to the Council to carry out the making of Byron street and Hanover street, I as, under the present conditions, they were put to a great deal of inconvenience. j Mr J. A. Hughes explained his objection, I and asked the Council to stay the making of these roads, as they were not really necessary. The expense would be great to his clients, who incurred a loss of ^2,000 through the making of Gladstone road, a narrow road with drains having been pre- viously constructed. The objections of the inhabitants could be met by placing a gravel footpath there, but he did not think that, under these circumstances, the rest of the road should be made, with an expense of £220 to the Estate Company. It was generally expressed by the coun- cillors that the roads were really necessary. Councillor Manaton moved, and it was carried, that the Council carry out the private street works, but, if the people con- cerned were prepared to enter into an agreement to put the pavement down when called upon, the Council defer making the pavement. NEW ROAD. Mr J. A. Hughes also applied, on behalf of the Holton Estate, for permission to make a road from Holton Farm to Flora street, near St Paul's Church. It was agreed to allow the Estate to make the road 40ft. wide, and the kerb- ing without the pavement. NEW THEATRE ALTERATIONS. Mr Arthur Carlton, proprietor of the Theatre Royal, who was accompanied by Mr W. E. Knapman, architect, applied to the Committee for power to make certain internal alterations or deviations from the plans of the Theatre now in course of erection principally the omission of the second floor external staircase to the roof garden. The Committee gave the neces- sary permission, with the proviso that should the Committee, when the building was complete, deem the exits insufficient, Mr Carlton should construct the extra staircase. VANDALISM IN PARK. I Owing to the serious damage done by persons and children in Central and Vic- toria Parks, notably the uprooting of plants in both Parks, and the breaking of a small roller lent for the rolling in Central Park, it was decided, on the proposition of Councillor J. A. Manaton, to take drastic steps to bring offenders to book, and also to offer permanently, substantial rewards (about two guineas) for the apprehension of offenders. GLADSTONE-ROAD TENDERS. For the completion of Gladstone-road, through the disused quarry, the following I tenders were received £ Messrs J E Strachan & Co., Cardiff 3125 Mr A Brock, Cadoxton 2760 Messrs W Collins & Co., Barry 2542 Mr Alban Richards, Barry and Pentre 2513 Messrs W Osmond & Sons, Ely 2236 Messrs H Ringham & Sons, Barry 2220 Mr J W Froom, Cadoxton 2184 Mr G Rutter, Barry 2160 Mr H S Rendell, Barry 2097 The tender of Mr H. b. Rendell was accepted, six months being the time stipu- lated to complete the work. BARRY ISLAND SCHEME. During the discussion of the Shelters at the Central Park, Councillor Howell Wil- liams asked for advice as to the submission of a notice of motion to provide several similar shelters along Barry Island. Councillor J. A. Manaton said there was already a scheme in course of preparation for the Island. Councillor Howell Williams then queried when it would come out of preparation. Mr J. C. Pardoe said he hoped to bring the proposals up at the next meeting of the Public Works Committee. "TRAFALGAR SQUARE." It was agreed to level the remainder of the ground in front of the Public Offices similarly to that already done. MINUTIAE. The Barry Romilly Bowling Club wrote applying for the same concession granted Cardiff clubs, of the levying of a uniform charge of 5s 4d for all match games, irres- pectivc of the time taken to play the game of 2r heads. It was agreed to grant thi- to all local bowling clubs. The power of granting permission fo" the holding of public meetings in front of the Public Otlices was, as last year, dele- gatcd to the Cierk (Mr T. U: Tordoff). priority to be given to the hrst applicanf. BARRY PARK GARDENERS. A long and occasionally acrimonious discussion took place on the question of the extra payment of gardeners for Sunday dutv, owing to the complaint of two of them, Messrs Jones and Mills. Statistics relating to the hours, wages paid, and conditions of service at several other towns were considered. Councillor Howell Williams moved that I the gardeners be paid at the rate of time and a half for Sunday work. Councillor M. Nicholas seconded, but this was lost, the mover and secondet only being in favour. Eventually, on the proposition of Coun- cillor C. B. Griffiths, the whole matter was referred to a special meeting of the Public Woiks Committee to consider the whole question of the parks gardeners afresh, and L, to revise the scheme. Dr P. J. O'Donnell seconded, and this was carried.
< Barry at the Academy. -:0: Two Local Artists Represented. Harry will undoubtedly lead the way in Wales in the forthcoming Royal Academy Exhibition. Two local artists will be repre- sented on its walls. The picture Dives and Lazarus "-a photograph of which was re-produced in these columns in December last--has been accepted by the Academy examiners, and is hung in a good position. Prepared for the gold medal competition of the ltoyal Academy, the work represents the first effort of Miss Williams of a subject painting in oil, and in consequence of the encomiums bestowed upon it by artists of repute at the time it was shown in connection with the gold medal competition, she was induced to I submit it to the R.A. examiners as worthy of a place in the 1910 exhibition, with the gratifying results announced. Miss Williams, who will shortly proceed to Paris and Italy for a lengthy period, has been honoured by Mr G. A. Storey, A.R.A., teacher of Perspective at the Royal Academy in that she has prepared a number of illustrations for his work on "Theory and Practice of Perspective," which has just been published. The author acknow- ledges his iiylebtedness to Miss Williams for her valuable aid. Mr F. J. Kerr, of The Colcot, Barry, art teacher under the Glamorgan County Council, has also won distinction by having I a small landscape painting in water colours accepted for the Royal Academy exhibi- tion.
Barry Dock Blaze. or 0:0 Good Watch by the Police. About 10 o'clock on Tuesday evening a tiro was discovered in the outfitter's shop of Mr G. Cousens, Dock View-road, Barry Dock. On the arrival of Police-Superintendent Morris, Police-Inspector Thomas, and others on the scene within a few minutes of the alarm, it was found that a quantity of seamen's bedding bad taken fire at the rear of the shop, and the damage was confined to the clothing and wear- ing apparel stocked on the premises. The chief contents of the shop were greatly damaged or destroyed, but the premises escaped with only slight injury. The outbreak was extin- guished within an hour.
