THE BARROW ELECTION. Unquestionably the leading and all- absorbing topic in the political world during the last few days has been the Barrow election, rendered necessary by the acceptance of the Chiltern Hundreds by Mr W. S. Caine, the Unionist member for the division. The Poll took place on Wednesday last, and the result, as reported in our columns, was declared late that night. That the Unionist party has lost one of its seats we do not think anybody will seriously care to deny,, but we confess ourselves utterly unable to see any legitimate cause for the wild exultation indulged in by the Gladstonians, over what they have temporarily gained through the misfortune of their opponents, unless it be that they are thankful for so small a mercy as a false victory. We contend that Barrow to-day, to all intents and purposes, is as decisively Unionist as it was in the General Election of 1886. That the contending forces were moved in the direction of Home Rule and anti- Home Rule is sufficiently established by the fact that Mr Gladstone himself urged in his letter all his followers at Barrow to support Mr Duncan's candidature, while Mr Caine, to the last, refused to be baited by the Home ¡ Rulers, aud in answer to the various questions put to him by wire, by letter, and by depu- tations, emphatically declined to espouse their cause, and went before the electors as in 1886, a supporter of the Union between Great Britain and Ireland. Mr Wainwright fought as an out and out Conservative, and secured no less than 1,862 votes, which, added to the 1,280. recorded in favour of the Liberal Unionist candidate, shows a force of 3,142 in favour of the Union, or a majority of 1,148 over the successful Gladstonian candidate. We do not affect surprise at the result of this election. It is generally the case that when one party, however strong and however positive its majority may be in a particular district, has the ill fortune of being divided in its sympathies and in its actions, the minority succeed in snatching a victory. Of such a nature was the accident at Barrow on Wed- nesday last. We C( nfklently believe that when the next gene-Mi election comes, the voice of Bai i-ow wil o ace mo *e be h<»ard in the councils of the nation ranged on the side of the Union.
THE PRIMROSE LEAG UE. All members of the Primrose League and our readers in general, will learn with deep regret that Capt. Jones-Parry, the able and indefati- gable agent of that powerful organisation in West Gwalia, has this week relinquished his appointment as such. Capt. Parry espoused the cause of the League in Wales at the time when its objects were but imperfectly under- stood, and interpreted with no small amount of scepticism, if not open hostility by the Conser- vative party itself. Not only had Capt. Parry to cope with this, but the aims of the Primrose League were selfishly and un- generously discarded, under the specious excuse that the success of the League would necessarily prove detrimental to the success of all then existing Conservative organisations. These, with many other objections, Capt Jones Parry, with his uniform affability, his clear understanding and lucid exposition of its principles, and his eloquent address, managed to surmount to such a degree that to-day, the Primrose League is decidedly one of the most powerful, representative, and popular of all nolitical organisations known in om* district: X o — We sincerely congratulate him upon the large measure of success that has crowned his determination to uphold and to assiduously disseminate knowledge of the true principles of the League. This he did not by passionately appealing to the sordid instincts of the credulous, the uninstructed or unidated, but by courting inquiries, arousing the enthusiasm and intensifying the earnestness of his fellow countrymen, by quickening within them the spirit of patriotism, and inculcating a sense and an appreciation of their duties and their privileges as citizens of their vast empire, such as he was well calculated to do. The League was started some seven years ago and then it numbered only ten members. But so rapid has been its growth since, that now it boasts of a membership of over a million. Its habita- tions are. to be met with in every city, town, village and hamlet in the land—some all powerful in their districts, others necessarily iiot so well ofl'. Wherever a branch has been established it has proved a unique success, ever on the increase. This success is not so marked and so satisfactory in those districts where the officers are earless and indifferent, or at any rate not so very active. These, how- ever, are few and are fast diminishing. In Carmarthenshire we have the Emlyn, Carmarthen District, Llanybyther, Llan- dovery, the Picton, St. Clean's and the Neweastle-Emlyn Habitations, all well organised, strong in numbers, and united and Z!5 enthusiastic in their proceedings. Cardigan- shire and Pembrokeshire are well to the fore, while in Glamorganshire the League has been eminently successful. Capt. Jones-Parry, during his four years of office, has travelled and delivered hundreds of addresses in no less than nine counties. It is impossible to gainsay the importance of organisation, and all sensible and well-defined additions should be received and encouraged as the only effective means of furthering those principles they have at heart. Organisations are the vantage ground upon which we disci- pline, fight our battles, and gain our victories. They are the sole means of systematically, and therefore effectively educating the masses, the centre around which politics turn, and the institutions which come into direct and whole- some contact with the constituents at large. The Primrose League was started as an auxiliary to other Conservative organisations —as a means of bringing to bear upon Z3 zn elections the irici-easing and active influence of females, hitherto unjustifiably ignored. We are gratified to note that with the aid of these voluntary bands of canvassers, who also dis- seminate useful literature, the political educa- tion of the electorate has received a marked impetus in the right direction. The Primrose League aims at the maintenance of Religion, the Estates of the Realm, and the Imperial Ascendency of the British Empire, and it may be regarded as the forerunner of complete woman suffrage. It has already accomplished much, is now doing more, and is yet capable of further development. Should its efforts have ceased with its noble and educating influence and power, its rendering narrower and narrower the gulf that unhappily divides various grades of society and prohibits t iat mutual intercourse and confidence between the comparatively affluent and poor, it would have accomplished a noble and lasting work, and would have more than justified its existence.

A. F. Mills, of Neath. The collections amounted to over £ 40 a much larger sum than the average for the last ten years being about £ 14 more than last year, and about 1:20 more than the previous year. THE BISHOP OF ST. DAVIDS' has left England for a holiday, and purposes to return to Abergwili Palace, about August 8th. His letters will not he forwarded. Clergy and others are requested to keep back till his return, any matter which may admit of such delay and to communicate (if nece ssary) on any formal business with Mr J. H. Barker (D ocesan Registry, Carmarthen), and on any other really pressing subject with the Arcli- deacons of the several Archdeaconries. I I ST. PETER'S CUCNEIR.— The members of the Sunday Schools in connection with this Church had their annual outing yesterday, when they proceeded by special train to Tenby. Abrut 800 turned up. The weather was gloriously ti"e after the recent rain, and all spent a pleasant and joyful day. Ample refreshments were supplied to all. Great credit is due to the superintendents and teachers of the several schools for thei: indefatigable efforts towards making the trip so great a success. TRINITY COLLEGE LOCAL MUSICAL EXAMINA- TK;X'—CARMARTHEN- CKNTRK.—The following is a list of the successful candidates at the annual practical examination, together with the teacher or school at which each candidate was prepared.

The weekly meeting was held on Sunday evening last, at the Salvation Army Barracks, when there were between 500 and GOO present. The chair was taken by Mr James, Barn's Row. Addresses were delivered by Mr Maclean, Mr Henry Howell, and the Rev. D. S. Davies, Union-street Chapel. The latter speaker made some very strung remarks, which do not speak very highly of a minister of the Gospel. In the course of the evening, Miss Hooper, Blue- street, gave a solo with credit to herself, and a party of Babell Chapel, Pensarn, also favoured the meeting with two songs, and were admirably rendered. The meeting was closed with prayer. A PRAISEWORTHY ACT. Yesterday, Alderman John Lewis, Commerce House, gave his employees a trip to Pendine. About 8.30. a.m. they started, numbering about 43, in two four-in- hand vehicles from the Ivy Bush Hotel, closely followed by a carriage with refreshments. The weather was beautifully tine, and it is needless to say that they returned home having spent a happy time, and with warmer hearts if possible than before towards their genial employer, Mr Lewis, whose praiseworthy example deserves the consideration of other tradesmen in the town.

After the Llandilo glee party had finished rendering the subject for the male voice competition at the Llanelly eisteddfod, Major Bythway, one of the, presidents approached the accompanist of the party (Miss Constance E. Lockycr, "County Press," Llandilo), and said that Signor Rindegger, one of the musical adjudicators had requested him to convey his congratulations to her for the excellent manner in which she had accompanied the Llandilo party.

May it please yjur Lordship to accept from us your tenants, through the medium of this address, our deep and heartfelt sympathy with your Lordship and your Lordship's family in your present bereavement by the death of your beloved wife and our highly respected Lady—Lady Dynevor.

Thy words have upholden him that was falling, and thou hast strengthened the feeble knees and often delivered the poor that crieth and the father- less, and him tlieni that had none to help him, 'and the cause which you" knew not" you have searched out in order to be eyes to the blind "and feet to the I;tiiie." And can assure your Lordship that "the blessing of him that was ready to perish has come upon you, and that you have often made" the widow's heart to sing for joy. In these sentiments, we express not only our own sincere opinions and thankful feelings, as your tenants, in relation to your noble self and your late beloved and praiseworthy Lady, but also the opinions: feelings of the public at large.

LOCAI, BOARD. The ordinary monthly meeting was held on Tuesday evening, when Major Thomas occupied the chair. The other members present were Messrs T. < Williams, W m. nritliths, Gritiith Williams, and Junkin Jones.- The surveyor pre- =- sentcd a return made by him of ratepayers using water for other than domestic purposes.—The Clerk read the list, and remarked that it con- tained a few names of persons who should not be strictly considered as using water for other than domestic purposes.—The Chairman asked the clerk to show him what the Act said.—The Clerk A supply of water for domestic purposes shall not include a supply of water for cattle, or for horses, or for washing carriages where such horses or carriages are kept for sale or hire or by a common carrier, or a supply fur any trade manufacture or business, or for watering gardens, or for fountains or for any ornamental purpose." —Mr T. G. Williams spoke strongly against the idea of taxing a manufacturing company (alluding to the South Wales brewery) to a great extent while not charging others, because they used a much less quantity. He would suggest that the surveyor should make out the approximate sum each ratepayer using water for other than domestic purposes should be charged, taking the brewery a" a has is, He did ii"t care whether it was only Is a year, but it was right to do so. -The Chairman I approve of what you say.— Mr T. C. Williams said that his object was not to cramp people in trade, but would rather give them all faciiit v. HDWPVPV the Board should cbaroi> I] "b' other people pro rata with the brewery. They paid more than anybody The Chairman observed that the question should be discussed seriatim after the bye-laws were prepared.—The Cle: k reiterated that the matter would net be altectid by the bye-laNN-. -Ali, T. G. Williams formally repeated his proposition. After some further discussion, Mr (xiifhth Williams remarked that the brewery had used the water before the Board had any knowledge of it. -The Chairman said that parties belonging to the brewery had spoken to him before putting the pipe down. There was no consent, but the Company were willing to pay—A Member (ad- dressing the surveyor) Did any member of the brewery company speak to you about the pipe before it was brought before the Board !—The Surveyor Yes they did, but they did not speak of the size of the pipe.—The Chairman said lie should like to have the reply received from the Local ("ovcrnment Board with respect to the town clock read.—The reply was then read, the terms of which we have already published.—The Local GovernmentBoard had by that letter decided that the Local Board could not in future pay costs of repairing, lighting, or maintaining the rate- payers' clock, or town clock. Now that the de- cision as to the rates had been settled he (the speaker) hoped that all bad feeling would die away, A; until something more definite was fixed upon as to the future of the clock, he propused to find the money for any repairs, tfce., that may be incurred as long as he would be chairman of that Board. He daredsay he would have s-uppoit. t-iidcl- the circumstances, they (the Board) did not deserve the treatment they had received outside. Mr Crillith Williams proposed that the clock should not be maintained in future out of the rates. He twitted the clerk for not having given the law upon the matter before the Board had undertaken its control, &-c. -The Clerk said that he had read it 20 times, and in his letter to Mr copy of which lie produced, he said that the Board could not legally take over the clock with- (),[It I faculty. This was a few months before the Board resolved to maintain the clock, which they did on the 7th June following. An irregular discussion followed, when ultimately Mr U. W illianis's motion was agreed to without any amendment.
I I PER I ALP A H L I A 1\1 E NT. In the House of Lords on Thursday, Lord Jersey, in answer to Lord Sidmouth, said it was not the intention of the Government to impose quarantine on vessels from Spanish and other ports at which there might be an outbreak of cholera but vessels from foreign countries would be bnarrled before they reached the land, and if there was any suspicion of any infectious disease they would be detained, and sanitary precaution taken to prevent the disease from spreading. In the House of Commons the London Over- head Wires Bill was, after an animated discussion, rejected by O;) to 200. Mr W. H. Smith, in replying to Mr Summers, said the Government had come to the conclusion that they had no alternative but to withdraw from the Local Taxation Bill all the clauses relating to he purchase and extinction of licences. The Allotments Bill was considered and read a iiiii,ti litile. The Barracks Bill passed through Committee. The Western Australia Constitution Bill was being considered in committee when the debate was, by rule, suspended. Tn the House of Lords on Friday, the Marquess of Kipon advocated the abolition of the comllJand in chief of the Madras and Bombay Armies and the concentration of these commands in the Commandership in Chief for India. The Duke of Cambridge thought it would not be desirable to concentrate the military administration of so large a country as India under one command. In the House of Commons, Mr W. H. Smith moved the appointment of a select committee to consider the desirableness of carrying over partly- considered Bills flom ono Session to mother Session of the same Parliament. The names proposed were agreed to. The Home Secretary, in moving the second reading of the Police Bill, urged the House to pass it with the least possible delay. The difference between the two-thirds desired by the men after twenty-five years' service and the three-fifths pro- posed by the Bill came to forty-thousand pounds a year, and represented between a farthing and a j halfpenny rate. The Bill was subsequently read a second time without a division. In the House of Lords on Monday, the Marquess of Salisbury, replying to Lord Rosebery, did not think that any measure for tettling Heligolanders in other parts of the British Empire would be in conformity with the wishes of the islanders. Every security would be taken for the protection of their interests. In the House of Commons, Mr W. H. Smith, in reply to Mr Gladstone, expressed a hope that he would be able to make a statement as to the course of business on Thursday.

Lord Coleridge thought the Bill should have originated in the Commons, as it imposed charges on the county rates, and he further objected to it on the ground that regulations for the reception of the Judges ought not to be made without consulting them. Ultimately the Bill was read a second time, and referred to the Standing Committee on Law. In the House of Commons, Lord G. Hamilton, replying to Mr Gourley, said it was intended during the Autumn to mobilise the Channel and Reserve Squadrons on a larger scale than last year for the Naval Manceuvres, In the House of Commons on Wednesday, Mr Wariuington moved the third reading of the Dit,ect(,I.s' l,i,LI)illty Bill, ;tiid stated that lie liad no objection to the bUt coining into operation at the earliest possible moment, aud would undertake that view should be represented in the House of Lords in order that amendments might be introduced there, providing that the bill should operate as soon as it bad received the L'oyal assent. He acknowledged the valuable asssistance he had received from the President of the Local Govern- ment Board (Sir Michael Hicks-Beach) and others. Sir W. Harcourt thought that course was the one that would be adopted by everyone who desired to see the success of the bill. What they had to consider was wheter they were to carry the bill or to lose it and he hoped that no one who was friendly to it would peisist in motions which must have a tendency to destroy it. Mr Ciemer, in support of the bill gave his experi- ence of the inducements offered to members of that House to join boards of director?. The third reading was carried by 224 to 50.
