Margaret Ana Lewis, a little servant giol, summoned her late employer, Mrs James Jenkins, 123, Holton-road, for 16s, wages due. The girl explained that she gave notice on the 25th Septem- ber, and on that date in November she agreed to day on, in order to oblige her mistress.—Mrs Jenkins explained that although she agreed to stay on, she did not do so, but suddenly hit one Sunday evening, and never returned.—Mr Jenkins made a counter claim for a month's wages in lieu of notice, but judgment was given for plaintiff for the 16s. claimed, payment forthwith, and counter claiir, was not allowed.

Defendant contended that, the shop being his wife's, and she having a tracfe account of her own at Penarth, where she had a grocery business, he was not liable. He had managed the business some five weeks ago, before he took over the Masons' Arms at Monmouth. The Judge ordered the money to be paid.

Woodham to transport it to Bristol from Barry Island. Arrived at Bristol, the addressee could not be found, and the furniture was taken back and lodged in clefen- j dant's storerooms. Defendant had been approached I by the firm, and offered £1 10s to settle the account I of his expenses in the matter, but he refused to do ao, as he had spent more than that in carriage alone.—His Honour: You ought to know that the valno of furniture purchased on the hire system is j ttuch less than is paid for it.—Judgment for plain- j for f8 with Solicitor's feei í AN AUCTIONEER'S CLAIM.

BARRY LIBERAL AND RADICAL ASSOCIATION. THE QUESTION OF CONTESTING LOCAL ELECTIONS ON PARTY LINES. RECOMMENDATION OF EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. The general meeting of the Barry Liberal and Radical Association was held at the Dolphin Restaurant, Barry Dock, on Saturday evening last, Mr G. S. Travtrs (the president) in the chair. There were also present the Rev W. Williams, Councillor David Morgan, and Messrs W. Graham, J. Beynon, J. E. Wensley (sec- retary), T. Thomas, K. T. Evans, Tom Evans, F. Stephens, W. Tame, W. J. Flowers, Griffiths, &c. The principal matter for discussion on the agenda was a recommendation from the Execu- tive Committee re the Standing Orders:- "That a special meeting of the Association be called at least two months prior to any local election to consider the aspect and take what steps they consider necessary for such election." The Executive Committee also recommended the Association, in contesting elections, "to nominate a fair proportion of bona fide working men candidates." The President, in introducing these recom- mendations, said they weie not the result of any hurried decision on the part of the Executive. Two Executive meetings bad been held, and a considerable time spent in consider- ing them. Councillor D. Morgan proposed that the recommendations be adopted. Mr Tom Evans seconded. Rev W. Williams asked if the recommenda- tions could be adopted without rescinding the resolution which was passed at the last meeting to the effect that they were not to fight local elections on party lines ? The Chairman said that in moving the reso- lution it was not the intention of the committee to debar the Association at any time from running a candidate if they thought necessary. Mr Tom Evans said the resolution that was carried at the last general meeting put the Executive in a very peculiar hole. The pro- poser of that resolution was also in a hole at the Executive meeting, and failed to see his way out of ih. The resolution, as passed, would leave it an open question, and the Association could take what steps they thought it. He thought the Association would find they bad made a great mistake, and would be glad of an opportunity to re-trace their steps at the next general meeting. The Chairman said Mr Evans bad given a wrong impression. The principal idea in forming the recommendation was that, if the meeting was called two months before any election, they could then determine upon what steps to take. Mr T. Thomas said he failed to see the utility of adopting a recommendation which practically contained, only a less democratic Ir,anner, all the elements embodied in the Standing Order rescinded at the previous meeting. The re- commendation appeared to him retrogressive in character, inasmuch as no mention was made of .Ward Committees-the committees empowered, under the Standing Order just eliminated, to first select candidates for approval to the Asso- ciation. Regarding the time for calling a special meeting to select candidates, he con- sidered two months too limited, as in most cases gentlemen who intended seeking public honours made known their intentions for a period ex- tending over two months; hence the probability of the nominee of the- Association having: to oppose a Liberal already known to be in the field. He therefore suggested, if the recommendation was adopted, that the words two months be substituted by the words "Early in January." Mr T. Evans was of opinion that the most democratic principle was for the Association to put forward its own candidates, and not for candidates to come into the field themselves. Mr Beynon (Barry Island) asked whether the Conservatives bad expressed any opinion as to the advisability of contesting elections on party lines. The Chairman: They generally do so, but never admit it. Mr W. Graham: I do not see how the Association can possibly adopt these recom- mendations. They are both a flat contradic- tion to the resolution passed at the last meeting. I am giving no secret away when ) say that at the last meeting of the Executive Mr Tom Evans said the Association had adopted a wrong policy. Mr Evans has told us to-night that this proposition is put forward to enable the Association to re-trace its steps. If they desired to contest auy ward, the wards were to be called together to nominate any candidatn, and it is for the Association to confit-ua the minutes of the last meeting or otherwise. If we adopt these recommendations, what differ- ence is there in our position now to what it was before ? I move, as an amendment, that the Association refer the whole matter back to the committee for re-considpratinin Rev W. Williams I second it. The resolu- tion is a little lax in its wording, and according to it nominations which were in the hands of the Association can be in anyone's hands. I think we are opening the way to putting our- selves in a similar predicament to that in which we were about six years ago. I am quite prepared to rescind the last resolution. Councillor Morgan proposed that both re- commendation and amendment be withdrawn, but after a little further discussion Mr Graham's amendment was carried.

MEN OF MARK. IN SOUTH GLAMORGAN. [BY DAVID LEWIS.] ARTICLE 1. MR COUNCILLOR ANDREWS, J.P., CARDIFF. There are few public men in Cardiff more generally esteemed by all sections of the com- munity than the gentleman whose name is at the head of this sketch. Mr Thomas Andrews has been a member of the Cardiff County Council for upwards of nine years, and con- tinues to retain with increasing esteem the confidence of the constituency that first elected him. And this is not to be wondered at, for he is one of that type of men who win their way by force of character, sterling ability, aDd hearty, genial good humour. Mr Councillor Andrews, who is a Somerset man by birth, is an honoured member of the Wesleyan body, and in politics he is a pro- nounced Liberal. But he is not a violent partisap. He is an imperialist of the Rosebery order, aud it may be said of him that he is one of the backbone, in Cardiff, of sound and sensible Liberalism. To judge Mr Andrews as a whole it would be fair to say of him that he is a large-minded, broad-visioned man, who takes a true and sound view of imperial politics generally, and is invariably on the side of all that is best and greatest in our municipal, social, and political life. But, like other public men who dare to act in a way they believe to be right and for the public good, Councillor Andrews has now and again come in conflict with opinions on his own political side in the ward be so ably represents which have been a little hostile to his public policy. But this has been due to no lowering, by the subject of this article, of the Liberal standard, but rather to the small and contracted views of a few men- good and true in their own narrow way, who are to be found in every ward-who are, like the horse-fly, always biting at open sores. Those who know Mr Andrews know how true and loyal and robust is the character of his Liberalism, and how firmly he clings to all that is best and most desirable in the political principles of the party to which he belongs. But, after all, it is not as a party man that Councillor Andrews shows to greatest advan- tage. It is in municipal, social, and industrial life that he appears at his best. On the Cardiff Corporation be has always shown an admirable and commonsense spirit of fairplay and an earnest desire to setove the public advantage. He will always adhere firmly to his convictions, but he will ever be genial and tolerant to those who differ from him. One of the fairest and most considerate of employers, he is yet one of the readiest to speak out his mind when he thinks working men are going on the wrong tack. Whe. Cardiff was suffering so much from the coal strike, over twelve months ago, Councillor Andrews, by his example and ready liberality, did more than any other man to save and avert distress in the ward he represents on the Cardiff Council. And that is only one out of many and oft-rocurring occasions when he has given a bright and practical example of that touch of Nature which makes the whole world kin; and he has again and again shown that, added to strong intellectual parts, he has a sound and a true heart. He is one of the best of our public-spirited man ever seeking to discharge with steady fidelity the duty which appeals most strongly to him. There are, of course, times and occasions in the lives of all our public men when tempta- tions come to try the metal they are made of, and it is pleasant to be able to say of a man, as I can say of Mr Andrews, that he has never, in his public position, sacrificed the public weal a & and the public interest. And yet it has been with Mr Andrews, as with many other repre- sentative men, that when he has been acting most truly for the public good, the strongest opposition kas coma upon him from those whose professed principles he was upholding Most. Of all the members of the Cardiff Corporation, there is no one who holds his convictions with greater firmness, vigour, and toleration than Mr Andrews; and no matter how you disagree with him, you are always impressed by his fair aid moderate spirit and his never-failing bonhwnic and kindly and charming personalty. For I know few men more consistent to all the principles of a right rule of public conduct. It requires a discreet and finely-balanced mind to guide a man safely and judiciously through all the manifold intricacies of daily public life, and ill this respect Councillor Andrews has suc- ceeded well. Mr Andrews, who is a well-read man of high intelligence, with strong and clear views on many public questions, has never posed as an orator; yet he has an excellent command of pointed and telling language, and seldom fails to carry his audienca with him. Though he is one of the most competent and efficient members of the Cardiff Town Coun .cil,l it is not only as a municipal representative that he has discharged his duty well. For six years he has been on the Commission of the Peace for the borough, and in the righteous and merciful administration of the law he has won golden opinions. His failings lean to virtue's side." His first considerations are always for the weak and erring. On the Bench he is regarded as an eminently fair and upright man, jealous alike for the majesty of the law and for the defects of our social system which sin against the better nature of weak-willed persons for like all men of the right quality, Mr Andrews shows that, even against the best intellectual gifts, the heart is greater than the head, and in no stress or adversity of life will he ever be found wanting. I could give in detail numerous instances when Mr Andrews has come to the help of public causes and nobly assisted private needs, and I only refrain from doing so because of his well-known aversion to parage and display of that kind. But he who runs may read. Take him all in all, Mr Andrews is a man of whom we are all proud. He has risen by his industry and ability to a solid and flourishing commercial position and, amid all his progress and success, he still remains the same kind-hearted, well- cOlldilioued wan. Though Mr Andrews is always guided in his pun ,i.: actions more by principle than the fluctuations of circumstance, it must not be in- ferred that he is careless of the public feeling ami aspiration. There are few men who are tuor- concerned for the public right and who strive more consistently (where 110 sacrifice of principle and conscience are involved) to favour and advance the public desire. But it can be said of him that in his public work he will always follow the course which he believes to be right, apart altogether from transitory and per- sonal consideration. Whatever may be adversely aid of Mr Andrews, it can never be truthfully reproached against him that he is in any sense a trimmer and a time-server; for he is a good, honest, clear-sighted, and competent public representative; and when the day comes for adjusting the value of his public work and service, he will, I am confident, receive the highest mark. I may say that Councillor Andrews, in addition to his other magisterial and municipal work, has for some time been chairman of the Tramways Committee on the Council, and has also, for some time, acted as deputy-chairman of the Parliamentary Committee of the same body and in all his public work he has shown loyalty of purpose and almost a total absence of any sort of fads such as hinder the usefulness of many otherwise good men. Mr Andrews is a member of the Mechanical Institute of Engineers, a Freemason of high standard, and a member of all the local friendly societies. In closing this article on Mr Thomas Andrews a score of things crowd upon me, all of which deserve honourable mention in a character sketch of this kind. But I am compelled to exclude them, so that I can only add that Councillor Andrews is a man still in the vigour and prime of life, and we may expect him to play a still more considerable part in the expan- sion of the district. The possibilities of greater public work still lie before him, and I am confident, if health and strength continue to be his portion, be will more fully justify the high esteem in which he is so deservedly held. Of one thing we may all be certain. Councillor Andrews will always be found on the side of justice and right, and that no occasion will arise when he will not be a true-hearted, patriotic, public man. I may just be permitted to mention the fact that Mrs Andrews, who has won such an admirable and envied position as a member of the Cardiff Board of Guardians, is the wife of the gentleman whose character I have been portraying; and it can be said of Mrs Andrews, as I have said of her husband, that she adorns her public position, and in all her public work and actions she retains our esteem and truest regard. Of all the lady members of the Cardiff Board of Guardians there is no other who has so rightly interpreted the duties of the position and discharged them so well.
BARRY DISTRICT COUNCIL. HEALTH COMMITTEE, Councillor W. Paterson presided over a meeting of the Health Committee of the above Council on Thursday evening in last week, the other members present being Messrs J. H. Jose and D. Morgan. INCREASE OF SALARY. Mr Leyshon, jun. (a clerk in the Inspector of Nuisances' Office) was given an increase of 2s 6d per w eek in his salary. MEDICAL OFFICER'S RE-APPOINTMENT. ThA Local Government Board wrote acknow- ledging the receipt of Lhe letter notifying that the Council had decided to re-appoint the Medical Officer of Health (Dr Neale) for a further period of three years, and also stating that they would now be prepared in the case of such an officer to grant the re-appointment for an unlimited period.-On the motion of Councillor Jose, it was agreed that this sug- gestion be accepted.

VAIN REGRET. Mr A. Williams, an assistant in the surveyor's office, wrote stating that inasmuch as he bad been appointed architectural assistant in the office of a surveyor at Coventry, he resigned his present position. Mr Williams added that had his application for an increase of salary been formally considered when previously made he would not have had reason to leave the Council's service.—As it was regarded that this was a matter for the surveyor himself, the letter was referred to that official. FINANCE COMMITTEE. The monthly meeting of the Finance Com- mittee of the District Council was held at the Clerk's Office, Holton-road, Barry Dock, on evening last, Mr J. H. Jose, J.P., presiding. There were also present Mr E. B. Smith-Jones and Mr A. T. White.—At the outset Mr James Cruise and Mr William Palmer attended, and asked for a rebatement on the amount rated them for private improvements. They both complained that when they built the property so rated, they had not been aware that thsy would have to pay so large a sum.—The Clerk was instructed to reply to them by letter, although they were given to understand that no reduction could be made in the amount claimed. TREASURER 8 REPORT. The District Council treasurer reported that the total overdraft at the bank was £ 28,533, of which the Gas and Water Committee had overdrawn 14,384, and there was a credit balance of £ 3,430.

BARRY DOCK POLICE FRIDAY. Before Mr J. S. BATCHELOR and Mr J. LOWDON. LITTLE BOYS IN TROUBLE. David Webb, a minute but mischevioua school- boy, on the 27ch ult conceived the glorious idea of going on the rampage, in the house of a man named Wm Garlaud Williams, who, at the time, was engaged in moving" into 300, Holton-road, Barry Dock. Having "moved" into the house, Mr Williams left the place for a time, but shortly returned, and found the youngster in possession of a melodion, prosecutor's property, while he himself was in possession of a few broken windows, the result of little boy Webb going on the rampage.— It was asserted that Webb was not the only boy on the premises, and that he did not break the win- dows, the damage done to whfch was 8s 6d, but the magistrates did not hold this view, and he was cautioned and discharged, having the damage to pay-Two more little boys, quite as mischevious, named Henry Marshman (9) and John Thomas (7), on the 12th ult decided to have a little joke, re- gardless of expense, on much the same lines as those pursued by the bucks and dickies ef 50 years ago, who revelled in wrenching knockers and smashing policemen's tall hats. These young- sters decided to each smash the windows of a street lamp, and did so.—The Surveyor to the local District Council, said the damage done was 2s 3d, and that the amount the Council spent yearly in that way was about 95.-The Bench very severely rebuked the boys, and fined Marshman 2s 6d for breaking the lamps, and 7s 6d for breaking the law, and the other boy 5s for doing both. QUIKTiriG DOWN. The unmuzzled-dog charges are becoming less and less, though only gradually so, and not as d. the quotations on the Stock Exchange. Fines of 5s were paid by many people, respectable and otherwise, for neglecting to observe the law re dogs. These are they :-George Lloyd, Fred Bracey, George Wynn, John Pearce, Thomas Wir. Thomas, and Partridge. An old gent named Wm Wilcock gave his dog a run on the sands by the sea, and also gave him a swim. He did not think he was doing any harm, and would not do it again. He was cautioned, but George Williams was fined 10s, it being his second offence in this respect. MORE MINOR OFFENCES. Thomas Barris, on the 22nd of last month, sold coke in Jewel-street without a name on his cart, and was mulcted in 2s 6d, as was George Harry for the same offenoo.-A little pig, abhorred of Jews, went out on the highway at Llancarfan on the 14th ult., and the owner, Watkin Lewis, was fined 2s 6d. Quite another kind of minor offence was that committed by Thomas Rosser, whose energetic chimney cost him Is. THE STRANGE WOMAN." A warrant was issued for the arrest of Annie Piddell, a notorious local person, whose appearance at the court creates no surprise. The charge against Piddell was that she kept a brothel at 35, Daniel-street, Cadoxton, which charge Police- constable Hawkins will be called upon to prove when she makes her appearance. THE DISGUSTING PEOPLE. Persons who by their deeds done in the flesh which, unfortunately for them, have been discovered by the police, and who may be said to belong to that class of people which is no class at all, were pretty numerous. A warrant was issued for the appearauce of Richard Greig for committing a nuisance, and Thomas Laskin was fined 7s 6d for the same offence.-The (irunk and disorderly people were many, and Elizabeth Williams, who now made her 39th appearance, was dispatched to the tront for a month. Fines of 5s were meted out to William Austin, Thomas Evans, Martha Evans, Elisha Waite, Charles Knight, and Frank Miller. A 7s 6d fine was imposed on Joseph Robertson, John Leyshon, T. Barker, Thomas Roath, Henry Hayes, Herman Ticeler, John Johnson, Samuel Samuelson, and John Long, and 10s on Charles Harris. Warrants were sent out for the appear- ance of Elizabeth Pritchard, Wilcox, and Charles Ciisp. MONDAY. Before Mr J. S. BATCHELOR and Major-General LEE. EXEMPTION PLEA. Geo. Alfred Samuel Booker, a gentleman who haq ahown, his appreciation of his parents de- cio^atiug him with a long name by calling bis first offspring merely: Alfred, applied to the magistrates for an order exempting him from com- t pliance with the law in respect to vaccination. General Lee remarked, as a kind of damper to Mr Booker's theory that vaccination was harmful, that lately 300 or 400 cases of small-pox had occurred as the result of people having a conscience. Mr Booker, however, persisted, and trotted out the fact that his wife had never been vaccinated, and that many of his relatives in Hull had escaped the one-time common disfigurement, although they had never undergone the operation. Application granted. WORKMEN'S CLAIMS. Five working men, named Richard Burnett, William Henry Lucas, John Brown, Robert Bowen, and Phillip Ttigg, all of Barry Dock, sought to recover, five separate sums as wages, which totalled 11 I up to f.10 9a 9id, from their whilom employers, Cox and Lewis, contractors, 83, Stacey-road, Barry IDock. Mr Alfred Jackson appeared for complainants, and said that the employers had agreed to pay the men at the end of the week.— Judgment accordingly. SCHOOL ATTENDANCE. The general average of school attendances in Wales is not so good as in England, and with the purpose of making matters more brisk all round Mr Seig, the officer of the School board, who looks after truant children, prosecuted several parents for negligence to their children's welfare. The first case was that against Wm Protheroe, a labourer, whose boy Richard was now sent te Dinas Powis Industrial School for twelve months. Protheroe had two boys in the Industrial School at the present time.—The case against James Tallboy was adjourned for a week in order to enable the indignant parent to get a medical certificate.- Orders to attend one of the several schools in the district were made on Wm Richards, Henry Lyles, Charles Bateman, William Evans, and Jno Wilson, and John Kilminster aLd Charles Webb were fined 5s each.—A bad case was that of Humphrey Harris, who was fined in respect of his children James George and Elizabeth, 5s each, aud orders were made for Joseph and Howell to attend Cadoxton School. NEARING THE END. The votaries of the muzzling order-which ought to be the subject of a grand epic-are few, and even the magistrates are not giving out fined 5s in such a cruelly gloating tone as they did some weeks back. Mrs Mary Silverthorne, who ap- peared with a minute doggie in her arms, is a lady who roused a gleam of pity in the savage breast. Police-sergeant Abrahams told a sad story. The other day he saw the doggie nestling lovingly in the lady's lap, where it bad taken refuge. It had no muzzle on. He interrogated the lady, took her name and address, and doubtless, with the best intention, generally terrified the lady, as well as the dog.—Mrs Silverthorne now said that she was taking the dog to Cardiff, and thought that if she kept it under eontrol she was following the in- structions of the Board of Agriculture. Taking this and many other things into question, the case was dismissed.—Mr Thomas Foley also told a piteous tale, and swore that the dog was not in the street, but in the garden. His case was adjourned. More outrageous, however, was the conduct of the following :-Thomas Edwards, Phillip Phillips, and George Rosser, who were fined 58 each; Ben Hoddinott, 7s 6d and John Morgan, third offence, 10s. THE COMING MAN. A boy named John Garrett was charged with cruelly ill-treating a donkey by btating the same with a stick on the 13th ult in Court-road.—Police- constable Welsby having proved the charge, the magistrate rebuked the boy, lectured him, and inilicted a fine of 5s. OUR FALLEN NATURE. Although the magistrates did not make the above remark, they, no doubt, thought much of the im- perfections of the human race, and especially the civilised portion, as represented by the few units who lowered their heads in consuming shame at the thought of having uttered words which should not have been spoken, or of having drunken too freely of the flowing bowl. Wm Dobbin is a yonng man who is a decorator by trade, and on the 25th ult he so ornamented his language as to become answerable to the law for the subjection of obscene persons. William's language made free of various portions of the divine anatomy of man, and he was consequently fined 10s.—The drunks were, as usual, those people who could not resist the temptation, even if they would. The magistrates early recognise these characters. Joseph Hicks, Mary Ann Found, who having lost a purse containing f4 16s 6ri, said she was merely excited, Catherine Morgan, Michael O'Neil, John Jackson, Patrick Mahoney, James Hughes, and John Smith, labourer, Maesycwm- street, were each fined 5s. James McCarthy declared in stentorian tones not guilty to the charge alleged to have been committed at the Royal public-'ouse on the 25th ult. James is an Irishman, and fought with another Irishman named Michael O'Neil, He strenuously denied being drunk, and against Police-constable Mendus' evidence brought that of a small boy named Wm Smith, who judged defendant had not had more than three pints, and a female witness, who shall be nameless. Having heard matters fully the Bench cautioned and then dismisaod the man.— A man who had fought more wisely-namely, against the savage Zulu-next answered the charge. The man's name was John Wheeler, and tenderly referred to the fact that his cranium had been trepanned,, and that he could not stand more than half a glass of strong drink. The Bench dismissed the case.-William Llewellyn, who also claimed to have been at one time a soldier of the gallant 24th, disbehaved himself very grossly while drunk on the 9th ult., and, furthermore, assaulted Police-constable Thomas. He was now fined 10s. —A case which aroused magisterial pity was that in which Elizabeth Pritchard, of fairly respectable appearance, surrendered on a warrant.—Bench Is it any good letting you off this time ?—Penitent: Yes, air.-Bench How long will you keep away from the drink ? Are you strong enough te do that ? Yes, iiir.-Bench You ought to be too proud to come here. Sign the pledge. You are cautioned and dismissed.—Jane Jones, though a woman who shid tears, is a much older offender, and was sent down for 14 days.-Fines of 78 6d were inflicted on John Marshall and Patrick Si nnebt, and Ka Od on Alex. Barry, of Penarth.
BARRY SMALL-POX HOSPITAL. TENDER RECOMMENDED FOR ACCEPTANCE. The Health Committee of the Barry Distriot Council at their meeting on Thursday evening in last week, held under the presidency of Councillor W. Paterson, received the following tenders for the erection of a small-pox hospital on a site secured adjoining the Weycock-road :— x s. tl. Alban Richards 7,915 0 0 J.Prout. 7,940 0 0 J one.
