L' or °. WHO ARE THE SCHOOL BOARD? FURNISHING ORDERS FOR THE NEW SCHOOLS. HOW ARE THEY SERVED OUT? Another remarkable incident showing the Tooley-street methods of conducting the Barry School Board business was disclosed at the last meeting, on Thursday in last week, held under the Wresidency of Captain R. Davids, the others present being the Rev W, Williams, Dr P. J. O'Donnell, Messrs John Reea and Peter Wright—a bare quorum. The following report was preaeuted by the "Furnishing Sub-Committee Present—Mr John Lowdoo (in the chair), aud Dr W. Lloyd-Edwards. (1) ''The requisitions for furnishing Hannah-1 street Schools were examined and passed, and the clerk was given the necessary orders to supply. (2) Dr Edwards and the clerk were authorised to order pictures for the schools, to the value of not exceeding 96 for each Department." Dr O'Donnell Besides wanting to know why the information given in the Sub-Committee's report was so very meagre, also wanted to know when such a committee was appointed. Captain Davies This is a very old committee. It was appointed before the fnrniahiug of Romilly- road Schools. Dr O'Donnell: I understand there was only one member present with the clerk, while there" ere six members on the former committee. Captain Davies: No, no. Dr 0 Donnell Well, sir, I have looked up a minute of this Committee, and I find that they are not emp >v:ered to spend any money or give any order, and I also looked up the minute of the last Furnishing Sub-committee, and then we invited tenders from various firms before making the selection. Captain Davies All the furniture ? Dr O'Donnell Yes. Captain Davies Have you any record of it ? Dr 0 Donnell: Yes, it is in the minutes. Mr John Rees said the tenders were examined by The Committee and afterwards submitted to the Board, who confirmed their recommendations. Dr 0 Donnell: We have ne account to whom these orders are given to, and there was a great difference between the prices last time. I claim that these orders have been given without any confirmation of the Committee's action. Mr John Rees and yourself are members of the Committee, besides Air David Lloyd and Mr Peter Wright. Captain Davies: Did they all have notice to attend ? « Mr John Rees I had notice, but could not attend. The Rev W. Williams said by the Standing Orders two members formed a quorum conse- quently, be did not see how they could do anything in the matter. For his own part, he happ> n-d t » be at the offices one day in the previous week whe he met Mr Legard, and he toll him they must Imv.■ two class-rooms furnished in the new schools at once. In fact, the inspector had even goue so far as to enter it on the log-book, and lie wanted to b., 1 satisfied that the Board had done, or attempted to do, all that he required of it. As for the Fu. roll- ing Committee, he believed, as a member < f ti e Board, he had had no voice in the question of furnishing the other schools. Dr 0 Donnell You are referring to Palmers. town-road Schools. There was a committee then. Captain Davies: The Committee has done all th work of selection, and it is the fitult (,f the members if they do not attend. Dr 0 Donnell: W hat Mr Williams says is allright, but this committee is appointed for several months, and now within three weeks or a month of openit g the schools they are in a harry and sprend tl-e whole thing over several furnishing firms. I don't know what is ordered, or from what firms. I have no information in the report. The Clerk said the Chairman asked him to call a meeting of the Committtee to make arrangenies.ts for furnishing. The Rev W. Williams asked if this Committee bad been appointed a 1< ng time ago, why they hai not gone into the Matter before ? Dr O'Donnell What I object to is that a Com- mittee of one should have power to purchase the whole of the requirements for a large school like Hannah-street, and after having do e so to men- tion it to the Board, without the requisition- beIng examined by the Board and assented to. This i» done, too, in the face of the face that thf 1-ist time we saved a lot of money in connection wi'h Palmerstown-road Schools. Th-n what I Is. object to is that a committee appointed to select furniture, with no power to spend money, shoul come here with this meagre report after Ilavi, I exceeded those powers. Captain Davies Dosn't; it amount to this these two members attended and the others did not and now you object. I think it haroly fair to blame them for doing their work afterwards. Dr O'Donnell I don't blame them. I object to the minutes. Captain Davies: You want detailed lists of prices. Dr O'Donnell: Certainly. The Clerk said he had distributed the orders, as the responsibility was thrown upon him of picking out the best prices. It was regarded as an nl gent matter, and he spent a good many days in the interests of the Board and in the interests of economy, and he claimed to have done his best under the circumstances. Mr Legard came to him personally and gave him to understand that they must proceed at once with the opening of Hannah- street Schools. He had copies of correspondence with the various firms. aal their prices were stated on the duplicate orders for every article. Captain Davies: The Committee made the selection. Dr 0 Donnell: No, sir. The Clerk tells us now that he has had to use his discretion in the matter. Captain Davies put the matter as to whether the Board were in favour of adopting the minutes, and three voted in its favour, viz., Captain Davies, Rev W. Williams, and Mr John Rees. Dr 0 Donnell: I object to this, air. They should be referred back for re-consideration. Captain Davios (to the clerk): Take a note of Dr O'Donnell's objection. Mr Peter Wright I must agree with Dr O'Donnell. Captain Davies. You are out of order. We have passed the minutes. Mr Wright I am against it. I don't like to criticise the action of the committee, as only tw, attended. I agree that these two are perf. ctly honest in the transaction, but at the same time you must admit with Dr O'Donnell that there is not sufficient information in these minutes to justit) the Board in passing them. And if (as Dr O'DoDneil says) there was only one member present, it makes matters still worse. Captain Davies That is wrong. I have it ou the authority of the Chairman that there wen; two there. Dr O'Donnell Where was the meeting held ? The Clerk I can explain the circumstanc. a Dr O'Donnell: Can't the clerk say where the meeting was held ? I cl Captain Davies (to the clerk) Where was the meeting h^ld ? The ( ierlj In Mr Lowdon's offices. Dr O'Donnell I thought so. Captain Davies: There is nothing wrong in that. Dr O'Donnell What took place was this A eommittte meeting was called. Dr Edwards and the clerk" ere present, and they went afterwards to Mr Lowdon's office, and they got him to consider n' the business with them. The Clerk •. Dr O'Dounell's statement i. not correct. Dr O'Doiziell: I accept the clerk's statement. The Williams desired to speak, but the Chairman ruled bim out.of order, and the motion was then put for the adoption of the Sub. Committee's report, the. sam three memb ra vntiug in its favour as before, Dr U Bom,ell and Mr Pettr Wright-constituting the minority.of two.

Dewis, in charge of the arrangements, now wrote asking for the payment I f the* amount to cover the iame, iz., L225. This was desired by the trustees. —Dt O'Donnell: Only yesterday one of the trullt. eg asked me how matters were standing?—It was agreed to pay the amount to finish the matter. THE NEW SCHOOLS. The Clerk stated that Mr I egard, H.M. In- spector, had recently pliid the BIJHrd a visit, and asked him whether such arrangements <;>>uhi be made to provide two or three cl»ss-r<'onis ready for use by Cbristmastide. The Clerk of Works considered this quite possible, and, with the contractor, were duing their best. THE COMMITTEES. The whole cf the Standing Committees of the Board were, on the motion of Dr O'Donn. ll, unanimously re-elected for the enduing yenr. CARETAKERS. It was agreed to consider the question of caretakers for Hannah-street Schools at the next meeting of the School Management Com- mittee. COOKERY. Mrs Findlay, of Caroiff, wrote fixing upon De< •ember 14th and 16th for holding the exami- I na'ion ot teacheis in kindergarten. There are only six teachers to be presented. BARRY BOYS AND INFANTS' SCHOOLS. The report of H.M. In pei tors were read UJ on these t'cbools, an'J described the work as generally satisfactory. 'r h. maximum amount of grant was earned, viz., E701 17s 8d. CHARITY FROM THE CHILDREN. Miss Wood, headmistress of Noinilly Schools, wrote asking permission to mahe a collectio among tne children on behalf of the Children's Cot in the Cardiff Infirmary. Miss Amy Evans also applied that permission be givtn to the teachers to sell prize-drawii g tickets at one pHnny each among the children for the benefit- of the Voluntary Hospital. Captain Davies pointed out that the ittit was a dai gerou- precedent to enter upon, and it was agreed thai the application be rt-tused.-Wiih regard to Miss Wood's application, the Kev W. VVilliam- tuoved that they refuse to accede to the request. The object was Doubtless pood, and it might teach children by this means to respect such It noble institution..At the same time, it placed poor children, who could cot get pennies from their parents, in a very humiliating and uc- desirable position. C'ipfain Davies I feel th* we should not grant it on that account alone. —The request was refused. WELCOME HOLIDAYS. It was greed that the suboolt4 should break up on the 21st inst. for the Christmas holidays, and continue closed until January 8th. CHANGES. The members resolved to allow Miss Fraz r to be released of her prt sent position after the Christmas holidays ill order to take ur th important duties of headmistress at Hannah- street Schouls and make the necessary arrange- ments connected with the opening of ttios, schools. APPOINTMENTS. Miss Perkins. late of Radnor-road B. ar Schools, and now (,f I ansdowne-road Schools, Cardiff, and Miss Lizzie Vaughan Williams, Llanberis, North Wales, were appointed on th. teaching staff of the Board as assistant mis tresses. Miss Catherine Worsley, Clifto, Bristol, was also appointed as ex-P.T. DISLOYALTY TO A TEACHER. Miss A. Lilian Hallett wrote tendering her resignation as chief assistant at Hollon-road Girls' Schools, a post she had held for the past six years, Miss Hallett having been appointed out of a very large number of applicants to the position of head-uiistress of a school at Brdf>rd. Miss Williams Also wrote desiring to be pro- moted to the position formally occupied by M i. Hallett.—With regard to the resignation Mr John Rees moved that it be accepted with regret." Personally, he felt sorry that such a highly-capable and efficient teacher was about to sever her conneetion with the Hoard. The reason why he moved this resolution was that the Board bad made a certain r-gulation re- cently with regard to a teacher's qualifications. and when convenient had discarded them in order to decline promotion to their faithful and efficient servant. Captain Davies: I think it hardly fair to hit out in such a way at the Board.—The resolution was, however, agreed to.—Miss Williams was appointed to the vacant position. APPLICATION BY TEACHERS. Miss Dopgett and Miss BH. ingfield wrot,. asking to tie a.lom-d to r main in toe service of the Board until they bid au opportunity f sitting for a Queen's Scholarship xam nation, their term of apprentice-hip bsvii-g t'xpr d. Their request was granted. COOKERY. Mist Hester Davies, Cardiff, wrote giving elj• results of the recent examination in cook rv. Out of 425 girls who prewsnted themselves, 390 obtained certificates. 204 in the first class and 186 in the second class. The work was of a hish standard, the girls preparing h- co' k r\ dishes with considerable ability, ,howitio, th;,t the instruction bad been of a most practical character. -The results at the schools were* Barry, 50 first class, 41 second class; Holt.n- road, 103 first class, 98 second class; Cad. xton, 49 first class, and 47 second class. SHARING THE PRIVILEGES. The next item on tb*- ag-i-dk was theselectioi of two representatives on the Welsh Fe., i, ration of School Boards.—The Clerk explained that it it could be shown that they had M. p. (pulation of 30,000 they would be entitled to an additional representative.—It was agreed, on the sugges- tion (,f the Chairman, to "rite o1¡o.kin r: be I" ruiitted the t, lid rei r. -en ativt p'o.- e, <j t. the el eti, <.f the pr<-ent s It tli"t f ould e out- f Willi'<n a' moved bv the Rev W.

BARRY DISTRICT COUNCIL. DAY OR HOUR WORK? EXTENSION OF GAS WORKS. The monthly meeting of the Barry Urban District Council was held on Monday evening at the Council Chambeis, Gas tnd Wtttt-r Office. Barry Dock, Mr J. H. Jose, J.P., presiding, the other Tueeliber-- present being Alderman J. C Meggitt, J.P., Councillors D. Morgan, W. Pater-on, K. B w i t h Jones, Evan Jones, J. J. Davies, J. A. Manaton, and A. T. White. GAS WORKS EXTENSION. Tenders were received for an additional gas holder, with a capacity for holding 600,000 feet 1 gas, and in recommending that the tender submitted by Messrs C. and W. Walker, Ltd, be accepted, Alderuian Meggitt said he did so because the specification was much better than in the lowest tender. Tht following were the t. nders received:- R. ind J. Dempster £ 8,690 C. aiid W. Walker 8,965 A-,bniore, Beiisoii Peaso, &Co., Ltd. 9,245 Uutter an,i Sons. 9,384 Westwood and Wright 9,654 Wb. 8vt Foundry Company, Ltd. 9,499 do. do. (with spiral guides).. 10,162 Alderman MeggiM a'so pointed out that tbf, new pumping engine was nearly finished, which was b. ing erected at Bigiis, and it was recom- mended that a patent oil separator be obtained at a. cost of S29 7s 6d. —This was agreed to. MAIN-LAYING WORKMEN. Mr D. Morgan objected to the resolution of the Gas and Water Committee that the main- layers f. r t'le future be paid by the day, a week to be 54 hours, and that in the winter time they start working as soon as it is light. The men should continue work until 5 p.m., overtime not to commence until such men have worke 54 hours. Mr Mergan said it was the custom in the town for workmen to work by the hour, and he moved that the men be paid by the hour. The Chairman said that at the- last meeting of the Gas and Water Committee the question ctimg up in reference to the men having to lose so much time during the winter months, owing to the fact that they did not start till daylight. The Committee thought it unjust that the men should take only 47 hours' pay instead of 54. He thought they ought to be equal with other luployers, and that was why the recommenda- tion was made to the Council. Mr Smith-Jones seconded the motion that the matter be referred back. He did so because they bad a great number of men doing similar work. He thought they should, with other societies, appoint an hour for starting work, seeing that they bad a large number of men in the employ of the Council who would expect to be treated in a similar way. Mr Meggitt thought it best that the matter be referred back, so that as much light as pos- sible be thrown on the subject. Mr Jose trusted that the Council would not refer the matter back to the Committee. Th, largest portion of the men were paid fully every we- k, and those ought to be taken into account. The resolution was put to vote and carried. THE BURIAL SCANDAL. The Clerk read a letter from the caretaker of the cemetery with reference to the recent dis- ci sures affect ing the irregularity in the proce- dure of burying the dead at the cemetery. The Caretaker said that on one or two occasions he t -d allowed a burial to proceed because the o-, rtificate had been forgotten, but he kept an ce uut of all certificates, whether they were registrar's, coroner's, or notification. THE BUTTRILLS SITE. Wi. h reference to the land acquired by the C uncil nHllr the Buttrills for h. spital and other purposes, the extent of which was 38 acres, 1 rood and 28 perches, a Jonst -tis(-ussloii túoJ, place and it wa* finwllv r,solved to reier the matter back for consideration. THE SMALL-POX HOSPITAL. Kefering to the resolution of the Public W tks Committee t at an additional loan of £ 700 be applied tor for the small pox hospital, Alderman M, ggi I t timke, t if there was anything to pi event their movu g the present small-pox hospital from the sanatotium, and placing it ot the land acquired at the Buttrillg. The otn mittee bad found the tenders f. r the new small-pox hospital much in eX'-ess of the surveyor's e.-timate, which was owing to the abnormal cost ,f the material, and he suggested tl-at the old hospital be removed to the new site. The cost of retnovingit would be about £ 200. He moved that that be done.— Councillot White secoi'ded. -'the Surveyor said tht the structure would hardly bear removing.—The prol.ofsitioti, however, was carried. A CONTRACTS' OFFICIAL. Councillor Smith Jones, ref. rring to a reso- lution that an < fficial be appointed to deal with the contracts, at a salary vf £ 200, moved that the matter be deferred. Enough consideration had not been given the matter, and it would b* well if the Work* D. partment, before appoint- ing a special official, was to do the work it had to do. Mr J. A. Manaton seconded, but the resolu- tion was lost. THE WORKS' COMMITTEE. The following were appointed a new Works' CommitteeCouncillors D. Morgan, J. C. Meggitt, J. A. Manaton, W. Paterson, and A. T. White. FIRE ESCAPE TENDERS. R, ypr,¡} tenders were received for the new fire escape, but the prices varied so greatly that the Chairman tin ught it would be unwise to accept ar y one of them. 1 he following were the amount* Merry weatln r and Son 11,58 Haih-y »i,d Co 165 W. Hose ano Co. UJO Shand, Mason, and Co. 267 Alderman Meggitt suggested that the matter be r,-f.,rr, d to the Health Committee, with full i-ower to act. Councillor Manaton seconded. Councillor Pnterson moveu an amendment that the Councii settle the business at that meeting. Mr A. T. White seconded hut the amend- ment WHS lost, and the matter referred to the Henlth Coinuii tee. CORRESPONDEVCE A letter was read troni the Barry Railway Company with reference to the changing of the CtLdoxton a no Barry stations to Barry E. and Barry W., and the clerk was instructed to give the C uncil's reason for the change.—Major Wsndham Qum, M.F wrote stating tblit, in Accord a ce with the wish f the Council, tie ba lc,,Feii with the Po>ttiia-.u i-General w th ref r. n to tslablishing a t, legrapi, office nt Pjke-street Poft-< ffice, and th t the De- pHitui-nt piomised to consider the matter.

E. Wensley) wrote asking the Council for a copy of their wards' scheme, but the Clerk could not advise the Council to comply for the present, and this was agreed to.-A letter was read from the Shop Assistants' Association with reference to the Shop Seats' Bill, and the clerk was instructed to state that the inspector of nuisances, who bad charge of the Shop Hours' Act, would also have charge of the Act relating to the supply of seats for shops.—A letter from Mr Geo. Thomas relating to the Gladstone- road was referred to the Public Works' Com- mittee. RESCINDED. Councillor A. T. White moved, in accordance with notice already given, that the resolution arrived at at the last meeting accepting the tender of Messrs Shand, Mason and Co. for clothing and boots for the members of the fire brigade be rescinded.-This was seconded and carried with but three dissentients, and the whole matter was referred back to the Health Committee with power to finally decide the matter.
BARRY ACCIDENT WARD. TAKEN OVER BY THE DISTRICT COUNCIL. THE EXACT POSITION. MEDICAL MEN TO BE APPROACHED. At the ordinary meeting of the Barry District Council, held under the presidency of Councillor J. H. Jose, on Monday evening last, a letter received from Major-Geueral Lee, treasurer of the local Nursing Association and Accident Ward, was submitted from the Finance Com- mittee and read. General Lee wrote stating that he had be, n given to understand that the Council bad been good enough to resolve, in response to his letter of the 12th inst, to con- tribute S550 towards the up-keep of the Accident Ward for the year 1900. The expen- diture had been estimated by him at JE883, and as the Association received £100 annually from the Hamadyrad Committee, this would reduce the necessary income to JE783, or X233 less than his estimate, au amount which, in the present condition of their finances, would mean the ciosing of the Ward. They regretted this decision extremely, and saw no other course open, unless the Council guaranteed the whole of the cost to close it at an early date. The Association only required to be recouped in the matter for their outlay, and this might be safe- guarded by rendering the accounts quarterly. It would cost them this year to maintain the Ward X583 7s lOd, and with seven beds, the expdhditure would be according to his estimate. The Chairman The question is whether this Council is prepared to grant more money to the Accident Hospital-if not, it is to be closed. Alderman Mt-ggitt I can't help but believe that if the Accident Ward in Kin g sland crescent is closed, it will be a standing disgrace to the town. I don't think, sir, that the feeling of the inhabitants of the town with regard to this Ward is that it should be closed. We know it has been the means, undoubtedly, of saving life, and als-i been the means of providing a place where those who are unfortunate enough to meet with an accident can be treated with medical assistance without any very great delay. I am very sorry to find that it has come to this crisis. In common with others, I was hoping -as the Council was hoping-that money would be forthcoming which would beep this Ward in existence. Seeing, however, that the Council has now something in the nature of a final appeal from the Nursing Asso- ciation, I think that the time has come when we should face our responsibility and, I believe, our duty, and at once indicate to the Nursing Association that we are prepared to take over this Ward and maintain it. We have to-night in the minutes of the Health Com- mittee passed a resolution allocating five acres of larid on the higher portion of the town for the purpose of a hospital, and that means that sooner or later—I hope sooner than later—the town will build a hospital and maintain it. If that is the case, and we have power to that effect, we should at once take ¡;te,s to indicate what I have mentioned and take over this Ward in Kingsland-crescent and carry it on ourselves in connection with the Health Com- mittee. There is only one question which can passibly arise of a difficult nature. I don't think that the question of finance will influeuce us largely in this matter. I have not the estimate by me, but it does "em extraordinarily high that to maintain a small Ward like this it co"ts X-IOO or £ 800 per annum. There may be a means of reducing the working expenses that I know not of; but I certainly don't think that the expenses will be as great as wt, anticipate. The difficult question which may possibly arise will be any action which may be taken by the medical gentlemen in the town. I think it would be wise to consuit them on the question. The Ward being placed entirely for the town, and the cost coming out of the rates, it may be that they will want payment. This question has been raised before, and it will have to be faced. I only express the hope—as has been been done hitherto, that the medical gentlemen will give their services free to this Ward. I mention this now because it is a question which must be considered when we take over this Ward, if we decide to take it over. With a desire to make some provision so that men shall not be sent to Cardiff to be treated after cases of accident, I move that we undertake to the Nursing Association that, as soon as arrangements can be madp, we are prepared to take over the Ward. The Chairman thought the question to ba decided was whether they should not contribute more largely to the funds of the Nursing Association. Councillor D. Morgan asked if the £100 now given the Association by the Hamadryad Com- mittee would still be giveu to the Accident Ward under the control of the Council ? The Chairman I should think so, as long as we continue to treat their patients iu the same way as at present. Councillor D. Morgan thereupon intimated that he would second Alderman Meggitt's pro- position, and believed it best, unde> the cir- cumstances, to take the Ward over. Councillor Smith-Jones asked if it would not be better te refer the matter first of all to the Hospitals Committee? Councillor Manaton supported Alderman Meggitt'» resolution, and said the Council may as well take it over now as later on. He t.elieved it could be worked more cheaply than it Wn8 bci) g worked at the present time, and considered that £ 550 would cover the cost.

Powell was i epres, nted by his wif< who said the dog, although kept at her house, really belonged to another man, and in order that she might have an opportunity of bringing -,ati, factory proof of her rtatements the was permit ed an adjournment t f that case for a week. THE ORDER. What order? There is only one order now outside the Iimifll of the Tratiovaal bo, derg, aiid that is to muzzle, muzzle, muzzle Those who disobfy th»t oider will b" fined like Dr W.

The social system of the Burry district should be rudtlyt-hocked by the knowledge of diseloguie., made by the police in a cas-e in w hich a woman of the fallen class named Annie Jones was chaiged with keeping a br< thel in the erestwhile respect- able locality of Charlotte-place. She occupied a houee which was matched by Police-sergeant Gill at d Police-constable Chilcott in the early morn— 4.30—of the 4th ii.st. They peered into the back kitchen, which was lit up by a 'apenny dip, and there b. held on bedstead, supported by some brickp, two women and three men asleep in oue bed Of course, the noise caused by the entrance of the po ice caused a stampede, ai d when the latter got inside one woman, named Sarah Stephens, declared to be a prostitute also, was found beneath the bed in a half-dressed state. One of the men was in hiding beneath 1 he staircase, and alloU ft in aL empty room, defendant and a man Ilk the bed.

When charged with the offence of keeping a disordeily house prisoner retorted that she could do a month -6 on her head and there is no wonder, after being associated with isuch squalor, filth, and nameless crimes—Sarah Stephens was called, and unblushiugly told a "hamful ti.le of her depraved, immoral life.—The Bench gratified Jones' desire, and sent her fer a month, where she will spend her Christmas. -> JOHN'S JUBILEE AT HAND.

GONE WITH A CLEAN SHEBT. Frank Lane, a Barry painter, celebrated the fact 'hat he had been called out lor service in the Army Resetve, not wisely, but too well. Before parting he had a few glat-ses with his friends, aud these made him to obstreperous that he really became imp' rti, ent and refused to go home when requested by Police constable Welsby to do no. These cir- cumstances were explained to the Beuch, who were also informed that Lalle had actually left for the front, and desiring to see him away with a clean sheet the mugistrates consideiately decided upon dismissing the case.
