BARRY RATEPAYERS DISCUSS THE COUNCIL, CROWDED INDIGNATION MEETING A meeting, convened under the auspices of the local Ratepayers' Association, took place at the Regent Hall, Barry Dock, on Tuesday evening, called for the purpose of considering the present state of the District Council, and also what remedies might be applied. There was an exceptionally good attendance of ratepayers, the hall being crowded before th hour of commencing. Mr S. R. Jone. president of the Rate payers' Association, said the meeting was called under the auspices of that body, and, under the circumstances, he asked the meeting to choose a chairman. The names of Messrs W. J. Flowers, Fred Walls, and R. T. Evans were suggested, and finally Mr Jones was unanimously asked to take the chair. In doing so, the Chairman said he did not wish to shirk any duty, and they would bear with him. It had been his lot to occupy a similar position several years past, but he never felt a greater responsibi- lity in the chair than he did on that occasion. They would need their best, soundest, and most temperate judgment in the matters they were to discuss, and they did not come there with the object of bringing coals to the fire. Things on their District Council were not what they desired as citizens He hoped no ratepayer had come there with any other object in view but the good of the town, and that personalities would not be indulged in. They knew that certain charges had been made by members of the Council one against another recently, and he thought it was their duty that evening to weigh matters carefully and deliberately, so that they may come to right conclusions. They would have to consider whether they believed those accusa- tions or not; and there htd been from certain quarters suggestions as to a remedy. They wished the whole of the wrangling to be dispensed with, so that the councillors could give to the town that attention which its business demanded. Mr Abbott, Holton-road, proposed the following resolution :— "That this meeting respectfully urges upon the DUtrict Council the necessity of at once applying to the County Council for jiowei to increase its nurnbt r of representatives to 24, the same to come into force at the next election, 1902." He moved this resolution for two reasons- 1, that unless something was done shortly there would be no District Council left, as one would eat up the other- (laughter) 2, it was time for the real affairs of the town to be considered. The time had been given up to personal recrimination, and he thought the time had now come when something should be done. Mr W. L. Hughes seconded this. Mr 1). Bevan asked if the County Count; Council had power to deal with the matter. Rev Pandy John asked on what ground the Council were aked to apply to the County Council. On the ground of the troubles within the Council, or on the ground that the increase of population demanded it ? Mr W. Cruise said if he understood rightly, some few months ngo the same resolution was proposed and carried. A deputation from the Ratepayers' Association appeared before the District Council, which said the time was in- opportune. Mr H. Collier gave as his reason why the Council should be extpllded-lhe fact that there were not sufficient members on the committees to carry on the wurk properly. ome of tbem were on two or three committees. He bad attended the Council, and had heard proposi- tions that it" be referred back to the Health Committee. The very one who proposed it. They could see there were thousands of pounds expended by the town by two members only. They bad read of a commissioner being sent to Colwyn Bay to inquire into the state of bank- ruptcy of the town, and inasmuch as I have had my fill of it in Barry, I am g-ing to clear out of it I've bad enough of it. (Laughter.) What does Shakespeare say Which is the villain let me see his eyes, That when I note another like him, I may avoid him. (Loud laughter.) When a man aspires to serve on the District Council-and it should be an honour and not a disgrace—when he assumes to himself to stand up in the Council Chamber and say to the public who were there, It is all very well to get these ignorant people here to applaud and do nothing," he rose as a protest against it. He was one of those ignorant men. Mr J. Kelly proposed that, taking into consider- ation the increase of population, the members of the Council should be increased in proportion. It had been urgeH that the increase of membership should he obtained simply because those who are present are creating such a terrible disturbance, but the logical conclusion was that if a few made a row, a greater number made a bigger row. (Applause). Mr D. Bevan seconded. Mr Abbott, answering a question asked by the Rev Pandy John, said the reason he asked for an increase was because he thought that a man hould be on one committee only. After some further discussiou the meeting voted. when six were iu favour of the amendment and the rest in favour of the resolution, which was carried Mr H. Collier moved that the Council be c"ll..d upon, in applying to the County Council for an extension of members, to apply for that alone. The last time the Council applied they also asked for an extension of the Urban district, which caused the failure of the application.-This was at once accepted. The next resolution was moved by Mr T. Evans (Holton-road), in favour of an inquiry by the Local Government Board. He did not move his resolu- tion in any vindictive spirit. To his mind the doinga of councillors were no better than taproom talk. With regard to the inquiry, they saw four members voting the last time in favour of it, and on a previous occasion they voted the other wuy. There was some reason for it One gentleman who belonged to the firm implicated, refrained from voting on one occasion. It was what one would expect from a justice of the peace. But on the last, occasion this gentleman comes a distance of 100 miles to vote on his 0" D case. From that they were able to draw conclusions. He believed that member to be an ornament to the Council, but at the same time he was surprised at his adl JO in voting. He ought to court inquiry, and he hoped v\ hen he did he would come out of it guiltless. (Applause.) They did not want people rattling papers in other member's faces, saying: Here is something here." They warned to see what it was. He hoped everyone present would give the whole question impartial consideration This was seconded by Mr White. Mr Medhurtt supported the resolution, and Mr H. Coilier put forward as a justification for the inquiry the evidence which was produced at the last mee'ing of the Council. Mr Fred Walls used geneially the arguments he had advanced at the Trade*' Council meeting (reported on the fourth page). With regard to the alleged trading, he maintained that it wis all through a mi-take. (Cries of dissent). The order had been handed over to another firm, and the man who had been making the charges had execu- ted it and charged an adoitional 40 per cent-, on it. He it was who h .d done the wrong. With the permission of the chairman. Councill r Wiufitewas allowed to answer this personal charge. Hetkniied tnat he had put 40 per cent. on to the bitf himself, this being done at Newport, and not ,lIy himself. (Applause) Mr Magga did not think au enquiry was ne. ned for a transaction amounting to only £ 5, which had befn g-n^ and p^st. Mr W. L. Hughes, who next spoke, went nrst of all to deal with the resolution, as framed by the Executive, as being different to what « as submitted that tv< ning, but was peremptory call d tc erder by the Chairmau, who declared the statement to bw untrue, Mr Hughes, continuing after some further talk, declared that the w hole object of the meeiing was to try and push into tht mud two gentlemen who had honessly and conscientiously represented the ratepayers since the first 1 eal hoard was formed in the ditrict. Mr Husrhes, pr ceeding, went to dye what he declared tu be facts in referellce to some timber tranwlCtion at Cadoxton, whereupon Councillor Smith-Jones rose and appealed to the Chairman that, w hen direct f <ls; hoods were given, they should not go unchallenged ? (Hear, hear.) Mr Wiitkitis, Mr Evans, and Mr J. Cruise appealed that the resoluti n should be passed, in order that the honest e s should be lifted above the suspicion that bung over them at the nr. spnt timp. Mr W. Cruise sii the diversity of opinion at that rr.ee ing only sho <. ed that there was need to clear up the doubts. Mr Hooper, who also spoke, considered it to be t) ne;itli tlit-m t,) I-nqtiir, it,to a trumpery matter, which was only a t' clinical breach, and took place in the year 1897, and about which it had b'en candidly admitted there was a mistake made. The resolution was put to the meefi g shortly • ft< r 10 30 p.m., when t' ere v,-e>e abmit 12 hands raised against it, the remainder being in favour of it. l'he Chairman then declared the resolution carried by an over A helming majoiity. and an-! 1 otmced that on Tuesday next a public meeting '\Iuld be held iu tvfeieuce to Sohool B jard matters

Visitor Drowned at Barry Island. SEIZED WITH CRAMP. LACK OF LIFE-SAVING APPLIANCES. Mr William Thomas (29), rollerman, Wynd- ham-street, Tongwynlais, was drowned in Whitmore Bay on Monday evening. Deceased engaged a bathing machine, and entered the water, but he had not been enjoying his bath more than five minutes when a companion of his (Mr J. Onsel Jenkins) saw him throw up his arms twice and sink out of sight without utter- ing a cry. Efforts to find the body were futile, but it was washed ashore at Nell's Point and recovered by Mr James Hyamsen, boatman, and Beach-inspector Medlin, about. seven o'clock, and removed to the Marine Hotel, where the inquest will be held. It is supposed that the deceased—who leaves a widow and one child- was seized with cramp when in the water. This is the first fatality that has occurred during the season, and, considering that several thousand persons have indulged in a bath during the I season, it speaks volumes for the safety of the bay. INQUEST. Mr E. LI. Rees, deputy-coroner, held an enquiry respecting the occurrence at the Mal ine Hotel on Wednesday, Mr F. J. Loyns being foreman of the jury. Evidence was given that everything possible bad been done to attempt the rescue of deceased, and Dr Billups having declared that death was due to drowning, a verdict, was returned accordingly. Comment was made on the fact that no life-saving ap paratus was placed near the spot, and it was decided to rpquest the coroner to communicate with the District Council asking them to cause bathing machine pioprietors to have life-belts hung outside the machines and life-lines attached.

PLAYERS FOR SEASON 1901-2. NOTES BY ATHLETE. In a brief review of local football clubs and their prospects last week, I dwelt particularly on officials and their characteristics. My notes on players I have reserved so that I can deal fully with the subject—and correctly. It is a difficult matter to buttonhole players, even when you have caught them, but with the assistance of one of the secretaries, my work his been made comparatively easy. • BARRY UNIONIST CLUB. Correct information about the Unionist Club's men is desirable, and for such information one must go to the fountain head—the secretary. I lid so, and found Mr Davies surrounded by work"—writing paper, with weapons of pen and ink, correspondence, and with it a look of worry (In his face. He informed me that I should be furnished with particulars as soon i-s they were ready, but that such statements as bad already been made were unofficinl and in correct. The club is not goin? to play its trial match on August 31st, it has not secured the Witch ill ground, but will play on tht- orouitli on th> Butfrills as in the past. It would be ridiculous to expect a paying gate on the Witchill ground unless it was boarded 10. Correct information regarding this club may not, therefore, be expected for at least a week. CADOXTON ROVERS. T. Buckler is this season's captain of the R.ivpra, an experienced man who has but lately developed good qualities as a back. He is a powerful kick, has good speed, and is generally a sure player. He is. I believe, a promising man. George Burbidge has been described as the best junior goalkeeper the district hrts ever produced he is perserving and cool. Wm Winch plays left back in the team, and has the advantage of never knowing whfii he is beaten. Morgan Lowrie was an interest ing figure last season. He is outside right, perhaps the fleetest man in the team, and with the ball at his feet seldom misses his murk. Albert Ev sns is another swift player, a reliabl- right-half, and k,'eu on the game; both he and Wm Gould are hard-working halves. Albert Lewis, late of the Barry Church Athletic Club, and Walter Winch, are b >th plucky players, and can take a d» al of gruelling. The secretary's opinion is thit the team is a strong one, and iikely to prove a winner in one of the League competitions it has entered. t CADOXTON JUNIORS. Among the Juniors Harry Sheppard has played in many clubs as goalkeaper almost since his adoption of breaches. He shines particularly whpn dealing with penalty kicks. Victor Moss, Bert Cox, Wm May, and others are promising members, and may be relied on to do their bi-st in the interests of the team. The captain and best man is Albert Witchard, 17 summers, who is sure of foot and a fine sprinter. He is out- side right, and one uf the best scorers in the district. C. BOWIPS, the smallest man in the team, will attack a giant with all ti,e coi-fidenct, of the terrier attacking a mastiff. He is a hardy player. If I am not mistaken, this team was not once beaten on its own ground last season. Wm Thomas is one of the new members of the Junior team. He is a smart centre-half, and is an altogether valuable player. • • BARRY COUNTY SCHOOL. Hewi Andrews is the captain of the County School team this season, and last year was a good exhibition as goalkeeper. He is a prom- ising youngster. Evan Jones is well known among the J unior as the hardest shot in the district, and Ben Bunford has a reputation as a tricky player. The County School players have great advantages over others, and ought to profit accordingly. BARRY DISTRICT. Fred Connor, secretary to the club, is acting as goalkeeper this year. and is esteemed a good player. Acko Pearce has always bpn connected with the Juniors, and Joe Yarr, the captain, is a popular leader. Other tried players arc id Glanville, Gomar James, Tom Gyles, and Eruest Melvin. • ft BARRY DOCK ALBIONS. This team has as its captain Tom Davies, a graduate of Holton School, a man (,f experience uid a coming centre. He is smart with his feet, and irritates his opponents. Other players are Albert Haywood, right back and a good dribbler; Wm English, left-back and tackier; and Fred Davies, brother of Tom, who holds with his brother the distinction of being the highest scorer. He is centre-half. ft c CADOXTON MOORS. This team had a good record last year. The principal players in it are G. Hurford and C. Trenchard. Hurford is a safe player as g al- keeper, while as inside left Trenchard is always at his post and seldom fails. » » ft FRED. MILLAR GONE TO HUL Fred Millar, the old International Welsh for- ward, and captain of the Mountain Ash team, has at last decided to join the Hull team.

Barry Trades Council and Local Hairdressers. BARBERS WHO WON'T CLOSE ON THURSDAYS. At the fortnightly meeting of the Barry Trades and Labour Council on Thursday even- ing a letter was read from the local branch of the Hairdressers' Association with regard to the opening of certain members of the Associa- tion on Thursday afternoons, in opposition to the wish of the majority. It further stated that one of the barbers had threatened to open on Sundays if the Association" billed" tne town as threatened.—Mr T. E. Dunn said the early closing movement in the trade was threatened by two or three "blacklegs" in the branch. He thought it would be a good idea to bring the question before their branches.— Mr R. Hughes concurred. The hours worked were quite long enough, without working on Thursday afternoons and Sundays.—It was decided to bring the matter before the branches, and also to ask the Hairdressers' Association to affiliate with the Council. THE DECISION OF THE LAW LORDS. At this stage of the proceedings Mr John Thomas gave notice of motion that they discuss at the next meeting of the Council the decision of the Law Lords on the Taff Yale Railway- OMB.

"In every instance he found the old injury neatly dressed with down plucked from the stem of feathers and skilfully ariaDged over the wound, evidently by the loig beak of the bird. In some cases a solid plaster was thus formed, al:d in others ligatures had been applied to wounded or broken limbs." We have not mtt with any of these birds ourselves.

An Irishman Thrice Tried for Murder. A Limerick correspondent states that the authorities have decided to liberate the prisoner, John Sullivan, who has been three times tried without the jury agreeing upon a verdict, for the alleged wilful murder of Michael Clifford at Kil- bane, near Limerick, on September 12th last. Both men were labourers on the holding of James Nolan, and on the morning in question Clifford was found dead in bed with his throat cut. Sullivan was lying beside him with a self-inflicted wound in the neck. The men bad quarrelled, and the prosecution contended that Clifford was murdered by Sullivan with the latter's razor, which was found in the room. The condition of Sullivan's release is that he leaves the country, and be was removed on Friday night from Limerick Gaol for transpor- tation to the Color ies.

I lost appetite and when I did eat, a sense of fulness and a sinkmg feeling in- variably f' llowed. So low and eak iid I get t, at often I would sit down and cry bitteriy. My limbs aehpd in the morn- ing. and I had pains in the head (Juring the dav. I was very aispirited, and often wished I were dead. There was also a gnawing pain in my chest, ai d I felt fit for no house work at all Besides thi,, I as ti ou- bled with a form of ic- z ma, my skiu coming off off in places, and btiut; rough and raw. All sorts of m, ans I tried so as to get relief, but patent medicines only seemed t" make me worse. Then a few mouths i-go Dr Slater's Blood Tonic T, ble s were brought '0 my notice. I resolved to try them, and the medici e has proved a priceless treasure. Such waR the effect of the fhst few boxes that I went on with a proper course. I got better by degrees, and DOW, after p- rsevering with the treatment, I am once more ih capital health.

A LETTER from a WELSH BARD. MR W. E. REES, Barry Dock. Dea' Sir,—I feel it is my duty to let you know the glasses are suiting me. I must tell you that foi- years my sight has been bad, and I had tri'-d all sorts of spectacles but could get no improve- iiie-itin my fight. Whvn I was at Barry my daughter, who has had spectacles from you for herself, and my grandson persuaded m" to come and consult you. I was very doubtful if you could do any- thing for me. But I am very glad now that I came because you were so careful in testing my eyes, and the spectacles I bought from you have made a new man of me. and I am able to see splendid in fact my sight is alright now, and I can assure you I am very grateful, and I am recommending all my friends to coue to you.

BARKY PUBLIC WORKS. WAGES OF LOCAL CARPENTERS. COMMITTEE SUPPORT THE STRIKERS. The monthly meeting of the Barry Public Works Committee w«s held at the Clerk's I )ffiees, Holt"n -road, Barry Dock, on Tue*d^iy Hfternoon last, Mr J. H. Jo-P in the chair. There were also present Councilors J. A. Manaton, P. J. (J'Donnell, and J. L. Davies. CARPENTERS AND JOINERS' WAGES. The question of the rate of wages to be paid by the Council contractors to cari enters nnd joiners came up for consideration, when letters were read from Mr J. Prout, contractor, and from Mr Sanders, secretary to the Joiners' Society, re the rate of w»ge« paid by employer- in the district. The li-t given by Mr Prout showed that over 50 men were employed at the rate of 8ir] an hour, while Mr Sanders gave a long list showing that i latger number of men were working in the district at the rate of 9d an hour. Mr Prout maintained that more than half of the employers named by Mr Sanders were not then employing men.—Mr Manaton said that not half of the meu mentioned were then in the town.-The Clf,rk said if the joiners bad sent a complaint they would have bad to prove their case, but the matter was brought up by the Council members themselves, and it was. therefore, made the more difficult to prove. —The Chairman said each side had made a statement, and each objected to the othpr's f-tatement. Both parties were asked to appear before the committee, and having done so, the committee considered the case as to whether Mr Prout had violated his contract of the Barry Island Reading-room and Library by employing men at 8id an hour. He (the Chairman) said that under the circumstances and evidence heard, he was of opinion that the recognised rate of wages was 9d an hour, and it was decided that, 44 after making inquiries, the committee is of opinion that the recognised rate is 9d an hour. INCREASE OF SALARY. Mr C. Hearder, assistant to the surveyor, was granted an increase in salary of os per week, with a like increase yearly for the next two years.

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not hold ourselves responsible for the viewe expressed by our correspondents.—ED. HAIRDRESSERS' ASSOCIATION AND EARLY CLOSING. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "BARRY HERALD." CIIR,-The Hairdressers' Association has now been in existence for the past twelve months The obj-ct for w hich it was established was to abolish Sui d .y labour aud to have a recognised half-holiday on Thurs(inys, beside a universal hour of closing. namely, nine o'clock the fore-part ot the week, half. «n-iiour later on Friday, and 12 o'clock on Satur. day. But now, through the action of a few of its former members (amongst whom are some of the originator <.f the above Association), the half- h<-lid-)y and Sunday's rest is in danger of being abolished, simply b cause those few state that el .ing means a Joss of trade. I appeal to those pa ronising the hairdressers with the question Do y,;u belit-e that ?" If there is universal closing, how can there possibly be a loss of trade? I ask those who enjoy their half-day once a week and t'.eir Sunday's rest not to support those who vio- late the rules of the above Association. By so doing thty wilJ confer a great boon upon us, and will greatly oblige a body who at present stand to lose their well-earned rest. I may here mention that we alnariy woik about 70 hours per week, not in- cluding the extra hours some are already working on Thursdays. I would here like to thank the public for their sympathy which they have showed, and aLo the active interest some of them displayed on the initial day of cur campaign-Thursday last. Thanking you in anticipation of this being inserted in your most valu-kble paper, so that the public may judge the facts for themselves.—I am, &c. J. J. McCUTCHEON, Chairman. Barry and District Hairdressers, Association.
