EDUCATIONAL PROGRESS IN WALES. DR AARON DA VIES REMINISCENT. The Rev Aaron Da vies, D.D., in the course of a letter to the secretary of the Barry Free Church Council in reply to the congratulations of that body upon the recent honour bestowed upon him' thus refers to the progress of education in the Principality When I look back to the state of things in 1847, 1848, and 1849, when I entered the Normal College under Dr Evan Davies, and compare such with the state of things at present -if, indeed, we come nearer than that and com- pare it with what it was in 1880, there is an extraordinary advance. In 1880 there were 57 students at Aberystwith College, then the only University College we had, and that almost sink- ing for want of funds. Now we have three Univer- sity Colleges with proper funds and equipments, and a charter with power to grant degrees and over 1,200 students. We had in 1880 about 150 scholars in intermediate schools, but now we have 94 intermediate schools with 7,400 scholars, and at the last examination we found that 285 passed the senior certificate examination, which was harder than the matriculation examination. I was at Bangor University College on the 2nd inst, to witness the granting of degrees to 45 in arts and 24 in science, makiBg^ for the years 71. This is marvellous indeed.

BARRY DISTRICT COUNCIL. I BARRY PLACE NAMES. THE NEW WORKS' COMMITTEE. X* raWN'S RELIEF FUND. p The monthly meeting of the Barry Urban District Council was held in the Council Chamber, Gas and Water Offices, Barry Dock, on Wednesday evening last, Mr J. H. Jose, J.P., in the chair, the other members present being Messrs W. Paterson, E. B. Smith-Jones, D. Morgan, Evan Jones, A. T. White, and Alderman J. C. Mfggitt. RECOGNITION OF BRAVERY. Before the opening of the usual business of the Council, the Chairman rose and presented to Mr Thomas Taylor, a sewerman in the employ of the Council, the certificate of the Royal Humane Society as a recognition of the bravery displayed by him, in company with Alfred Dickens, some time ago, in rescuing from a perilous position three boys who bad got on to the Bend rick Rocks, and were in danger of losing their lives. The Cbairmanexpresled the pleasure it gave him to make the presentation, and also his regret that Dickens was too ill to appear, he also having been presented with a certificate by the Society.—Mr Taylor thanked the Council for their efforts on their behalf, and withdrew. PLENTY OF WORK. Councillor White, referring to the list of tenders accepted for the curbing and channelling of various roads, asked why the Council had not followed what he understood to be their prin- ciple, and accepted the lowest tenders. Councillor Nmith-Jones said that the items were correct. The reasons which led the com- mittee to recommend those which had been accepted was that the others bad more work under the Council than they were able to accomplish. The difference in the amount of tenders was very small, and the work would be straightway put in hand. Mr White expressed himself as not satisfied with the explanation, when the Chairman pointed out that it was a resolution of the Council they were discussing, and that it would need rescinding. EXPERTS' OPINION. The resolution, "That a plant be obtained for the testing of cement, at an estimated cost of S25, such plant to be for the use ot the Council generally," was next referred to by Mr Manaton, who said it was his impression that the Council decided a month ago that the plant was not necessary.—The Chairman explained that the Gas and Water Committee had again considered the matter, when the arguments pat forward by several experts had led them to recommend the Council to adopt it. THE WATER SUPPLY. Mr Smith-Jones asked what would be the estimated cost of the well the Gas and Water Committee proposed, on the recommehdation of the Water Engineer (Mr E. W. Waite), to sink at Biglis, and for what purpose it was wanted. The Water Engineer reported that it was generally for the convenience of Messrs Vickers and Co., and that it would be to their own advantage. Mr Smith-Jones proposed thnt the resolution be eliminated, and that the Engineer report in full at the next meeting of the Gas and Water Committee, so that the matter could bs laid before the next meeting of the Council. Mr Manaton seconded. Mr Evan Jones said that Mr Meggitt and himself had visited the place, and that they were of opinion it would be to the interest of the district and Council to allow Messrs Vickers and Co. to remove their plant. Mr Meggitt: The new well will save night work, and will prevent the possibility of the discolouration of the water supply. There will be no further expense to the Council. Mr Smith-Jones The work ought to be done at the expense of the contractors, and not of the Council. The resolution was lost. THE HARBOUR ROAD. Mr Meggitt took exception to several para- graphs in the Public Works Committee's report. The first bad reference to the Harbour-road, it having been decided by the committee that the question of having a proper footpath be deferred. Mr Meggitt pointed out that the road was a highway largely used by working men. Mr Smith-Jones: It was recommended some time ago that the work be done, when the Surveyor (Mr J. C. Pardoe) reported that it would cost about £ 500. Mr Meggitt: Has a resolution been passed that the Council pave Harbour-road ? The Surveyor No. It was then moved by Mr Meggitt that Harbour-road be paved, and that powers be applied for to borrow the necessary money. Mr White seconded. Mr Manaton moved an amendment that the matter be referred back to the Public Works Committee, and this was agreed to. WHERE DO WE LIVE ? Mr Meggitt's next suggestion was that the future name of Cadoxtou be Barry East, instead of East Barry, as proposed by the Public Works Committee; and Barry, Barry West. He pointed out that the name of the town in its different divisions ought to be under B, so that in referring to it in the time tables, such as Bradshaw's," one would not have to look under three different letters, as would be the case if the Council adopted the suggestions of the committee. To this the Council readily agreed to. THE GLADSTONE-ROAD. Mr Meggitt's third objection was to the effect that in the course the Gladstone-road took from Barry Dock to Barry East, the pavement would be obstructed by part of a building which abutted on the Gladstone-road. Mr Smith-Jones said the building was per- fectly clear of the rood. THE GRAVE-DIGGERS. Mr White asked if the committee, when considering the report in reference to the grave- diggers, &c., at the cemetery, took into con- sideration the exceptional conditions under which the men worked; and if they did, did they consider the rate of wages sufficient ? Mr Smith-Jones answered that the report itself was a reply to the question, and proved that the men at the cemetery were treated mueh more liberally then were by many other public bodies. Mr White said the men had to keep a change of clothes at the cemetery, and he believed they were insufficiently paid, and moved that the matter be referred back. Mr Paterson seconded, but it was lost. OUR GARDEN. The surveyor was ordered at the last Public Works Committee meeting to see if something could not be done as regards placing railings round the allotments at Barry. Mr Manaton now said he had visited the place and found that they had not yet been commenced, and the Clerk (Mr J. A. Hughes) said the estate anthonties, who bad be.-n written ro on tbe sub had repli d and sai.l it was not their uui to place r»iilii,gs there. THE COUNCIL'S OFFICIALS' AND OTHERS. The mengre r^jKjrt of the Officials' Committee prompted Mr Evan Jones to ask if the case of Mr Blackaiore bad been fully gone into. Mr Jones further a^k'd th-t a r-pot t should be laid b. f, ,re the Council of the claims made by that official. Mr Pttterson Mr Blackmore has been shab- bily treated. Mr Evan Jones This report does not satisfy me. Tbe Clerk The resolution terminating Mr Blackmore's appointment was passed four or five months ago by the Council. The Chairman: And not a single objection taken to it at the time. Mr White: When that report was brought in the members were just leaving. I myself was lraviug. The Chairman: The report was fully and properly passed by the Council. Nothing had been done to my knowledge in the least degree improper. And if members were so anxious tc get home, that was their fault. Mr White then asked if the Committee jad interviewed Mr Crocket, who bad been iniared some time ago while in the employ of tiie Giis and Water Committee. The Chairman said that Mr Crockett ha made his own claim and signed it in the usuul way under the Compensation Act, Whereupon Mr White moved that the matter be referred back to the Officials' Committee. He thought, in fairness, that they should have the workman's opinion. His]: version of the case differed considerably from that of the committee. Mr Morgan seconded. Mr Evan Jones, not knowing it, asked for the committees' version. Mr Smith-Jonea said the matter was referred to the Officials' Committee from the beginning, and ought to have gone before the Gas and Water Committee. • 'ihe discussion then dropped. COMPLAINT FROM THE POSTMASTER. Mr Manaton called attention to the letter of Mr Price, the postmaster, complaining of the way Dock View-road was lighted, and he now moved that additional lamps be put in the road. The Chairman said they had not lost sight of the letter. The incandescent lamp was being tried, and that giving satisfaction, it was pro- posed to place a number along the principal thoroughfares of the town. COMPETITION IN BUSINESS. Mr Evan Jones L should like the Health Committee to explain the cause for the enor- mous reduction—nearly 50 per cent.—in the price of the fire escape and hose cart which is to be supplied by Messrs Shand, Mason and Co. to the Council ? The Chairman It is a matter of competition between the firms who supply those articles. Mr Manaton There is a principle involved here. I gather that they have been told the amount of the tender of another firm, and have, consequently, cut them out. Mr Meggitt: I move that the paragraph be eliminated, and that we advertise for the same goods, and that the tenders come before the committee. These things have not been adver- tised for in the usual way. Mr White seconded. Mr Paterson suggested that the matter be considered in private, but the resolution, being put to the vote, was lost, Messrs Meggitt, White, Jones, and Manaton voting for, and Messrs the Chairman, Paterson, and Smith- Jones against. LARGE PERCENTAGE OF INFANTS HERE. Referring to the Medical Officer's report, Mr Smitb-Jones asked if the figures were correct which gave the death-rate from infantile diarrhoea as 11-2 in Barry and 4-1 for England and Wales. The Medical Officer (Dr Neale) said that that was correct, and that the death-rate for Barry was very high. NURSING ASSOCIATION. It was decided to pay the subscription of jEooO per annum to the Nursing Association quarterly, instead of monthly. PORTHKERRY FOOTPATHS. A letter was read from the Trades' Council asking that the Council be informed of what had been done with reference to the above, and the Clerk was instructed to write that nothing decisive had yet been done, but that the rights of the public had been upheld. THE HOSPITAL SITE. The question of the hospital site came up. The committee recommended that the site of the hospital consist of five acres of land at the the corner of Colcot-road, and the road leading from the Holton Farm. Mr White moved that the report be not adopted, and that they agree to a previous re- solution moved by him. He now moved that £ 500 an acre be offered to the Wenvoe Estate authorities for land near the Woodland Hotel. Mr Evan Jones seconded. The Chairman said it was well known to the Council that it was practically impossible to get land in Court-road, as Mr White bad suggested, and he asked for the opinion of Dr Neale. The Medical Officer affirmed that the site suggested was better than that near the Wood- !and Hotel, but that a site about half-way up the Buttrills would be more favourable than either. In Liverpool, Manchester, and other large towns, the hospital was many miles out of town. Mr White's suggestion was not carried. THE WORKS COMMITTEE. The Council having decided that a Works Committee be formed for the purpose of dealing with the public works of the town, Mr White moved, in the first place, that the committee consist of the whole Council. Mr Manaton seconded this. Mr Paterson How is it to be begun ? Alderman Meggitt: I suggest that a smaller committee be appointed to prepare a scheme which they can submit before the Council. I propose that the committee consist of the Chairman, Mr Paterson, and Mr Smith-Jones. The Chairman: I seem to be selected for every committee. (Laughter.) I propose Aid. Meggitt, Mr Smith Jones, and Mr Paterson. Mr Paterson seconded the Chairman. This was carried, and Mr White's suggestion was over-ruled. THE SOLDIERS' FAMILIES. The Chairman said it was well known that a town fund had been established for the aiding of the families of those reservists who had been called out to the front. Appeals had been sent out to about 700 people. There was. another organisation which bad commenced work, and it was suggested that the town fund be amal- gamated with that, and that the funds of both be distributed by the town fund committee. It was evident that they would have a fair amount of money coming in. He had ascer- tained that there were only about five of the reservists' families in the town, and the object of the fund was to keep the families of the reservists in the town in the same position as they had been left by their husbands or fathers previous to being called upon for service. If a reservist earned 30s a week he (the chairman) considered that the family ought to have about JE1 a week out of the fund. At any rate, it would be their object to make the change in the families' circumstances be as little affected as possible by the supporters' absence. The Council readily concurred in the opinions expressed by the Chairman, and shortly after the public business of the meeting terminated.

BRIGHTEN PAUPERS' LIVES BARRY GLEE SOCIETY AT CARDIFF WORKHOUSE. On Saturday evening last the Barry Glee Society, under the able conductorship of Mr David Farr, who acquitted themselves so well at the National Eisteddfod held at Cardiff some months ago, gave a concert, with the assistance of several volunteers, in the large dining-hall of the Cardiff URion Workhouse, for the benefit of the inmates, The hall was filled with the old, infirm, and young members of the institution, as well as with the nursing and general staff, from the master (Mr Greenhill) and Mrs Greenhill, downwards. Councillor R. Hughes occupied the chair, and Mr Sam Griffiths had charge of the arrangement. About 50 members of the Society took part. Professor E. P. Mills accompanied, and opened the concert with a difficult and well-exeeuted pianoforte solo, followed by the Soldiers' Chorus," Mr Tom Farr, brother of the conductor, next sung in a suitably gloating manner, Revenge," the chorus of which, some- thing after the style of the villain on the stage, was immensely relished by the greater part of the old ladies of the audience. Mr Tom Farr also gave A hundred fathoms deep." During the evening Mr Arthur Roberts, so well known in Barry, con- tributed two violin solos, "II Trovatore and Last Rose of Summer," the exquisite rendering of which were very heartily appreciated. Master Edgar David sang Tom Thumb very prettily, for which he was loudly encored, and then gave Grace Darling. The sailor's grave and Alice, where art thou?" by Mr Trouchard-a favourite in this district—gave the greatest satis- faction. In response to an encore, Mr Trenchard rendered Margarette." Mr Roger Jenkins greatly amused his audience in That was enough for me," and I know where to find them." Interspersed among the foregoing the Glee Society gave their favourites, moat of which they rendered to perfection. They were "The Crusaders," "Comrades' Song of Hope," The Destruction of Gaza," Beleagured," and Where is He ?" A particularly fine duett, the music of which the dullest understanding must appreciate, namely, Excelsior," was admirably givea by Messrs Trenchard and Farr.—At the conclusion of the programme Councilloi Hughes rose and proposed a vote ot thanks to Mr Farr and his party. It was a great kindness on their part, he said, to come at their own expense to entertain them that evening. It showed that they had warm hearts, and God bad blest them also with fine voices, and he was sure that all had been highly pleased with the magnificent singing.—Mr Haynes seconded the vote of thanks.—Mr Brown supported, and in the course of a few remarks said that he never spent a more pleasant evening, and that they were greatly indebted to Mr Farr and his party.—Mr Hall also spoke.—Mr Farr briefly responded to the vote of thanks, aa also did Mr Sam Griffiths, who proposed a vote of thanks to Mr Hughes for his kindness in presiding.—Mr Hughes then called for three cheers for the party, which was heartily given by the inmates, both old and young, some of the poor old women waving their handkerchiefs as the party filed from the platform.—Subsequently the party was entertained by Mr Hughes to light refreshments at the Wynd- ham Hotel, and arrived home about 11 o'clock, highly pleased with their evening's work.
"LOOKING BACKWARD." I stood on the threshold of manhood, 4 The future is veiled to my eye, The present alone is n»y portion, The past is for ever gone by. Soon, soon will this present" be vanished, As other bright moments have sped Futurity open its volume, And yet other paths shall 1 tread. The past, like a vast panorama, Is lying stretch'd out at my feet; I can trace with my finger the blotches I've left on my life's record sheet. Full many an eyesore I see there, Full many an error behold The number of sins I've committed Is more than can ever be told. And on through the years of unfolding I see the dank stains ot neglect, And outbursts of passion unholy How seldom I e'er walked erect I And now, when fighting life's battle Alone and unaided I stand, It eomes home to me keenly,—the folly Of building my house on the sand The bright opportunities pass'd by, The chances that slipp'd from my hold, The obstinate choosing of tinsel And glitter, instead of the gold. And yet, though my sins have been many, My heart is not cheerless nor cold, For e'en now there's a way for redemption Still open for young and for old. 0 come, all ye weary and wretched Ye bruised and maimed by the foe Your sins shall be hurled to oblivion, And your records made whiter than snow."

A MODERN MINISTER. CONFESSIONS OF THE REV CHRISTMAS J. LEWIS. IS r HEy"E NEED FOR REFORM? The F,ev. Christmas J. Lewis delivered an addresf before the members of the Barry Free Chur',h Council on Tuesday evening in last wep, which has a close bearing upon the religious life and work of Free Church ministers and laymen generally. Councillor E. B. Smith- Jones (the president) occupied the chair, and the remarks of the rev gentlemen were listened to with close attention. The Rev Christmas J. Lewis observed, in the course of his address, that he wanted, if possible, to raise a discussion on some ex- periences of his own and elicit somethiug also from them. He wanted to look at certain phases of their Christian work, both as minis- ters and as laymen. One phase which had become serious to them as ministers was visit- ing. The demands made upon ministers in that way were continually increasing, and the duty of visiting had b9come a serious item of their daily programme. Suppose a minister had, between his congregation and members, 200 people. These required to be visited. It could scarcely be maintained that more than 20 days out of each month were available for that purpose, and he found there were many people who expected to be visited at least once in two months. If they required it once a month, ten would have to be visited every day by a minis- ter. For quarterly visits 2i persons would have to be seen daily. A great deal of time must, therefore, be taken up in that way if they complied with the demands and expectations made upon them. In his opinion, these de- mands were getting excessive, and in some way or other ought to be discouraged. It was an encroachment upon their time for meditation, prayer, and study. Besides, it was difficult to make visiing a religious matter. They must not be in oh character of "religious" visits, but were what may be termed complimen- tary visits. It was exceedingly difficult to turn a visit to a religious tendency. Per- sonally, he must confess that he had not been able to find out that any real, spiritual good had been accomplished by these visits, on the contrary he had reason to believe visiting was thoroughly demoralising. Another phase of a minister's work was-" How to make our services attractive ?" In Sunday services he noticed that the thing people wanted —at any rate many people wanted it, a suffi- cient number to call it a tendency of the time —was bright, short services. They must be bright, and they must be short. They tried to give bright services and short services, and to- day some of them advertised their topics. He did not express either approval or disapproval of that practice. His own position was one of doubt, of uncertainty, as to the utility of it. Another thing was that a minister at theclose was expected to slip to the door of his church and meet the people in some handy manner. Per- sonally, he would be quite willing to do that if it would prove a means to their salvation. There, again, this admits of doubt. Then, with regard to singing, it was exceedingly difficult to get singers to take a religious view of their duties. He found plenty of ppople ready to sing solos from Handel and the other great masters, which were difficult, but it was not easy to get a simple solo sung with a pathos that would help to reach the conscience of some indifferent man. No; the singer wanted an opportunity of singing a fine solo that would give him a chance of showing that he had a fine voice and could run the scale. He (the speaker) gave this up, because he found it had a tendency to turn people secular. Then, if he wanted the people to listen, the preacher must be non- doctrinal in his sermons. Even Dr Parker had admitted that he could not get anyone to listen if he preached on the subject of justification by faith. The question should not be How to make our services attractive ? but rather, "How to make our services effective ?" They bad been trying to please and attract people, instead of trying to get at their consciences. It would be far better to maka the people uneasy than to please them. He appealed for more lay help for ministers. He readily admitted that the ministry of the present day was far feebler than it was many years ago in Wales, and his conviction was that their deacons, too, were deteriorating very much—deteriorating not as wise, business men, but as spiritual forces. In conclusion, the rev gentleman said that men like John came from the wilderness to enter upon their great work, and he appealed that a minister of to-day should be permitted to enter the wilderness of seclusion for prayer, meditation, and study before embarking each week upon his work. The President, in inviting discussion upon the addref s, ieclared that never had he heard anything that had had made a deeper impress upon his mind, heart, and life than that which they had just heard. Rev Ben Evans (Tabernacle), who continued the discussion, declined to accept the contention that the preaching of to-day in Wales was far feebler than in former times. Personally, he believed it had reached a very high stan- dard. There was a great deal more spirituality about it now than hitherto. Mr J. Cruise considered that the rich men in the churches to-day were the greatest barrier to its progress. Mr J. O. Davies also spoke, and eventually moved that the debate be adjourned, consider- ing the importance of the question, and he also proposed a vote of thanks to the Rev C. J. Lewis for his timely and outspoken remarks. This was seconded by Mr J. Meikle and carried, the debate being adjourned till Decem- ber 5th next.

BARRY DOCK POLICE. FRIDAY. Before Mr J. S. BATCHELOR and Mr J. DUNCAN. UNMUZZLED. There were again a large number of persons summoned for allowing their canine pets to wander abroad without having muzzles on in the public streets, and fines were inflicted as follows :—Wm. Wallace, ï. 6d Thomas Bennett Rees, clerk, 15s B. Pomeroy, 5s Laura Hart, 5s George James, 7s 6d Wm Bowles, 5s George Cross, 5s Evan David, 5s Alfred Palmer, 5s. OBSTRUCTION NUISANCE AT BARRY. Barry streets have for some time past been occupied at night times by wanton youths who delight in using insults to young ladies aud occupy the pavements to the obstruction of passers-by. Thomas Keohane and John Davies were declared by Police-sergeant Abrahams to be of that class. On the 30th October they attracted quite a crowd in High-street by their loud shouting. Refusing to obey the peremptory order to move on, they were now prosecuted,—Police-constable Savage also gave evidence, and there being no satisfactory defence, Keohane, who had previously been con- victed, was now fined 10s, and the other defendant 5s including costs.—Thomas Neale, Alfred Lane, David Morgan, and Lewis Johnson, three other obstructionists, were fined, on the testimony of Police-constable Poolman, 2s 6d each a lad named Phillips, for not appearing at Court, being ordered to pay 2s 6d extra. HIS wilru HIS Boss. Samuel Blake, wheelwright, summoned for obstructing the pavement and roadway in Jewel- street, pleaded, in answer to the definite evidence of Polize-oonstable Beedles, that carts and wheels seen by him were not his property. They belonged to his 0 boss."—Mr Batchelor: Who is your boss."—Defendant: My wife, sir I am working for her.—The police evidence having been ampli- fied by Inspector Williams, defendant was fined 10s. RULES OF THE ROAD. There were cases of driving without lights, and also of animal straying, besides two-D. James, Llancarvan, and Daniel Macey, Penmark—for riding on a cart while the horse had no reins. They were each fined 2s 6d.-Bartholornew Begley, out early in pursuit of his avocation as a chimney sweep in the country with a mule and trap, was fined half-a-crown for having no lights to warn anyone of his approach.—Albert Netue, whose two horses were found astray, was ordered to pay 5s, and Thomas Jones, Llancarvan, was ordered to pay a crown for allowing three steers to stray, on the roadway. TIPPLIRS. Prior to entering upon the drunk and disorderly list, Jeremiah Sainsbury and Sarah Griffin were dealt with for using obscene language on the high- way, and they were each fined 211 6d including costs. THE DRUNKEN CREW. Patrick Mahoney, known as a keeper of the peace at Culley's Hotel, was fined 10s for breaking the same whilst drunk on the 7th November.— Mary Jane Sheppard, a pale-faced woman, appeared under a warrant for committing the same offence as Maloney on the 8th August, 21st October, and 8th November last. Sheppard bad her nose bandaged, and appeared very penitent. The magistrates were inclined to leniency until the book of records was referred to, when it was seen that Mary Jane Sheppard had appeared before the Bench 39 times previously. This being the case the two latter charges against her were dismissed, and she was sent to Cardiff half-way house for a InOnth.-Most people when they are arrested on the D. D. charge deposit bail to the extent of 7s 6d and fail to turn up. This 7s 6d, of course, is the amount of the fine. Wiser heads plaak down 5s, and supremely wise people only pay half-a-crown. The three degrees are represented in Robert Watkin8, William Toolan, A. J. Armish, William Redhead, Percy Reeves, Patrick McDermot, and Jas. Reenane, who deposited and were fined 7s 6d Thomas Logan, Frank Townsend, and J. Couzens, who deposited 5s and Henry Allen, who con- tributed 2s 6d.-Edward Webb, labourer in peace- ful Bonvilstoue, on the evidence of the local law- keeper, was mulcted in 5s. '1. I; MONDAY. Before Major-General Lzg and Mr W. W. NELL. THE COAL TRADE AT THE DOCKS. Wm Salisbury, a butcher's runner, was charged with stealing about 561bs of coal, value 6d. the property of the Barry Railway Co.. just after midnight on Sunday inorijing.-Police-constable Weeks deposed that he saw defendant on the far side of the dock carrying a bag of coal coming from the direction of the hydrauiic engine-house.— Police-constable 250, of the county police, also gave evidence, and Mr F. P. Jones-Lloyd, speaking in defence of Salisbury, said that while he admitted the coal had been stolen, there had been extenuat- ing circumstances, the defendant having arrived at his lodge at the pier-head on the night in question, wet through and very cold, and finding no fire he went in search of coal, and he (Mr Jones-Lloyd) asked the Bench to take that into consideration and deal leniently with defendant.—Salisbury was asked to øtalld dow n w hile James Mead, a ship's, cook, WM tried for the some offence, oommitted iI8 the early hours of Saturday. The evidence of Dock-oonstable Rees was very similar to the pre- vious case, Mead, when accosted, offering to buy the coal. Four previous times Mead had appeared before the Bench, and he was now fined f2, or one month's imprisonment.—Salisbury's case bearing a different complexion, and it being his first offence, he was fined 5s. SCHOOL BOARD PROSECUTIONS. Patrick Ryan, a dock hobbler, was ordered to pay 2s a week for the support of his child Kate at the Margaret's Hill Industrial School, and the following were fined for not sending their children to school regularly :—Joseph Taylor, 5s George Hearn, 5s Fred Thomas, 5s. Fred L. Goudour's boy was ordered to be sent to the industrial school, and orders to attend school were made on Thomas Barber, John George Davies, and Fred Smart. MINOR OFFENCES. Frank Marsh and D. Edwards were each fined 2s 6d, the former for driving without lights and the latter for allowing his horse to stray. THE MUZZLING FARCE. Various excuses, ingenious and otherwise, were put forward by the following when brought up charged with allowing their dogs to stray without the necessary ornament on their nose:—Evan Davies, William Jeremiah, William Bowen, James York, Frank Walker, and Edward Gibbs, 5s each and Percival Palmer, 7s 6d. IN HONOUR OF GUIDO FAWKES. A number of juvenile Britons surrendered to the heinous charge of setting of fireworks on the day preceding that of the 294th anniversary of the death of Guy Fawkes, of notable memory. They were all fined Is, with the exception of two damsels named Mary Fury and Martha Gibson, who, in consideration of the fact that they ought to know better, were mulcted in 2s 6d each. The following are the names of the boys :-Henry Adams, William Williams, Frank Piper, Albert Wheeler, Ernest Wilson, Percy Lane, Stoneham, Geo. Evans (warrant), John Burgess, R. Grant, David George Williams, Fred Keen, Mayer, John Garrett, George Williams (warrant), and William Bushton (warrant). DRUKEN PEOPLE. The number of people who came before the Bench for being drunk and disorderly was not great, General Lee remarking to several of them that it would be much more to their credit to kick up a row in the Transvaal than at home by donning Her Majesty's uniform. Robert Lloyd, labourer, who committed the offence on the 4th inst. was fined 10s, or 14 days; John Thomas, William Robinson, Albert Elliott, Pat O'Shea, Thomas Tobin, Henry Axham, and Catherine Kelso 5s each.
HOBSON'S CHOICE. IS THE SAILOR'S LOT. At Barry Dock Police-court on Friday last— before Mr J. S. Batchelor and Mr J. Duncan— Jenkin R. Evans, a seaman, was brought up in custody charged with being drunk and disorderly, and assualting the police at Penarth on 8th October last.-Police-constable James stated that on that evening a fight was proceeding in Maughan-street, Penarth, between prisoner and another man. He, of course, interfered, and requested the combatants to stay, but prisoner refused and closed with the policeman. A stiff tussle ensued, and after receiv- ing a few kicks and other attentions, Police- constable James was assisted by Inspector Hallett, who also gave evidence against prisoner, and asserted that he received a kick which grazed the skin. This was prisoner's first time before the local magistrates, and he was fined 5a for being drunk, and 15s for assaulting the police, with the alternative of 14 days' in gaol. There being none other but Hobson's choice, Evans went to prison.

ILLNESS OF MRS TREHARNE, CADOXTON HOUSE. SYMPATHY OF THE DISTRICT COUNCIL. On Monday evening last at a meeting of the Barry District Council, the Chairman (Councillor J. H. Jose) took advantage of the opportunity te refer to the fact that one of their members (Dr E. Treharne) had been, and was still passiog, through trying circumstances by reason of the critical illness of Mrs Treharne, who, for several days. had been in a condition verging upon death. He felt sure that all members regretted it very much and sym. pathised with their colleague. However much they differed in their views upon political and other matters in life, there was one thing that they eould always agree to do, viz., siuk all differences at the time of trouble and bereavement-U lamentin, with those who lament, and rejoicing with those that rejoice."
FIRE AT BARRY DOCK. OUTFITTER'S SHOP BURNED. On Saturday evening, shortly after 6 o'clock, fire was discerned by Dock-constable O'Neil on the premises of Messrs Smith and Davies, clothiers, Station-road. Sergeant Franks and other members of the force, by means of a hose and standpipc, were quickly coping with the fire, which seemed to have a firm hold on the centre of the building. The structure was of wood, but the outbreak was ex- tinguished within an hour. Considerable damage was done to the stock-in-trade and to the building, but the loss is covered by insurance. The same firm recently suffered from fire at their establish- ment at Cardiff.
