EASTBROOK-PENARTH FOOTPATH. DISTRICT COUNCIL INQUIRY. OVERWHELMING TESTIMONY OF ITS EXISTENCE. MR D. R. MORGAN AND THE COMMITTEE. The questiom of the existence or non-existence of a footpath between Eastbrook and Cogan- road over the Barry Railway, in the parish of St Andrew's, was inquired into by a committee of the Llandaff and Dinas Powis Rural District Council on Monday at Tower House, Elm- grove, Dinas Powis, when evidence was ad- duced in reference to the matter by residents and others interested. The members of the committee present were:-Mr Evan Watkins, Pentyrch (chairman); Mr David Evans, Llan daff; and th Rev H. Williams, vicar of Pen- tyrch. Officials of the Council present were Mr Warren (clerk) and Mr James Holden, sur- veyor, while among those watching the pro- ceedings were Mr Claude Thompson (on behalf of the Wenvoe Castle Estate) and Mr 3-. W. Chambers (on behalf of the Bute Estate). The attendance was not large at the opening, but witnesses arrived on the scene in quick succes- sion from 3 to 6, when it was declared closed, Mr D. R. Morgan claiming that a number of others were ready to afford their testimony if the committee would listen to them. Mr Chambers, at the outset, stated that with- out b<>ing in any way discourteous to the com mittee be did not intend to take any part in the proceedings. Lord Bute's agents were perfectly satisfied that there was no legal footpath this way, and bad persisted in this, and whatever the result of the inquiry they reserved to them- selves the right to prosecute any trespassers. Mr Claude Thompson said be endorsed the views expressed by Mr Chambers entirely. The owners of the Wenvoe Castle Estate never had any idea that a footpath existed at the place, and they would certainly "top people going there. They were doing that now. The Chairman Rf cently ? Mr Thompson The tenant told me that at different times he has stopped people going that way. Mr D. R. Morgan desired to ask Mr Thomp- son which tenant be referred to, but the Chair- man interposed and declared that it was right for Mr Thompson to reserve to himself the power to make a statement or not. Mr Henry Barrett, a member of the Parih Council, who came to the district to live 17 years ago, said the Parish Council had had the question of this path before them often, and at every election it was brought forward. He had traversed the path many times, and had never been stopped. Other people had done so, and they were desirous of having the matter cleared up as to whether this was a public footpath or not. Mr D. R. Morgan said he bad just been in- formed that Mr R. O. Cram had used the path, and he desired him to give evidence. Mr Cram I don't wish to have anything to say on the matter. The Chairman I must ask that the witnesses de dealt with in their own way, and not be in- terfered with. Councillor Heury Naldrett said he had used the path weekly for 12 years in coming from and going to Penartb. When at the latter place 12 years ago he was directed to Eastbrook by that route, which he described on the map hung up in the room. He had never been stopped, and bad travelled it once at least in every week for several years past. William Vincent, Paget Cottage, Grange- town, formerly of Eastbrook, deposed to having travelled the path in question many years ago, when he went to school at Cogan and fenartb. He crossed into the fields by a cattle gate just opposite the Swan Hotel. Edward John said he had lived in Dinas Powis si ce 1822. There was no path across the fields opposite to the Swann Inn prior to the hotel being built, but he believed that there had since been a path made there by the people of Eastbrook. Witness was the second oldest inhabitant of Dinas Powis, one man being 14 days older. (Loud laughter.) He thought the people of Dinas Powis certainly ought to have a path across the field in question. Mr D. R. Morgan desired here to put a question to witness as to the nature of his evidence in a trespass case heard at Penarth a few years ago, when it was dismissed, but the committee decided that Mr Morgan should not interfere with the witnesses. Thomas Bennett said he had lived in Llan- dough 44 years, before that two years in Pen- artb, and prior to that a year in Eastbrook. The path that witness had occasion-illy used started from the Dinas Powis side of the Swan Inn nd led across the first field into the old road. Wit- ness saw other people using it, and was never stopped. At this point Mr D. R. Morgan asked the chairman if he would feel inclined to call upon ex-Councillor Thomas Cram, of Dinas Powis, who was in the room, to give evidence. The Chairman said he would be glad to hear Mr Cram if he were inclined to give evidence. Mr Morgan said that his reaso* for suggest- ing was that Mr Cram bad already given evi- dence on the point in a court of law. Mr Cram not responding, Mr Morgan asked the chairman if he might ask a question of Mr Cram. The Chairman said that would hardly do. Mr Morgan Now can you hear me, Mr Cram ? Mr Cram I'll have nothing to do with you. The Chairman I did not give you permis- sion to ask the questions. Mr Morgan Oh, I beg your pardon, sir; I thought you did. After a brief cessation, Mr D. R. Morgan asked if it would be possible for the committee to order a conveyance to fetch the old people, as th day was wet. The Chairman, on the advice of the clerk, said he thought they had no power to fetch people from outside their own parish. Mr Morgan It was doue on a previous occa- sion. and I find that the auditor allowed the payment. That is a precedent already estab- lished. The Chairman, however, still persisted in the df cisioii not to send for anyone. A large number f witnesses were called, including Thomas Bennett, Llandougb, aged 1)7, who had known the path for 44 years John Taylor, aged 74, who had known the path for over 50 years, even before the roadway was constructed in front of the Swan Hotel, and as he declared it, before the chairman was born"; Wm Trenchard, Cogan, aged 69, who had known it since 1859 Charles Redwood, Cogan, who could remember it distinctly 22 years ago; George Frederick Spear, who had knowledge of it for 20years past; Jno Vincent, aged 67, had known it 37 years Jas Vincent (32), who had known it all his life, and wmt to school thatwsy; Joseph House (52), recollected it fir>t 15 y< ars ago and always since; George Hartlond, for 25 years; Mr Vizard, aged 73, known it for over 50 years; Thomas Wright (64), who bad known it 32 years, and John Berry, 10 years. These witnesses declared that they had unin- terrupted use of the path, the route of which all w-re agreed upon. When Mr Driseoil lived at G reen-"I-, one of the witnesses said he that he ploughed the field but left the path way. The inquiry clos.<I at six o'clock, there not bein^ time to hear all the evidence that was fortlic jrning. The Chairman said that tho committee could not see their way to sitting longer, and in reply o Mr Morgan, who said that there were a largt number of other witnesses expected in a fpw minutes, said that if intending witnesses had wanted to give vide nee, thpy should have been t'nei e in time. Mr Morgan Well, great injustice is being done if you do not hear them.

BARRY REVISION COURT. Last Friday Mr D. Den man Benson attended Barry Dock Police-Court for the revision of the lists of voters for the parishes of St Andrews, Leckwitb, St Lytban, Michaelstone-le-Pit, Sully, Wenvoe, Pen mark, Portbkerry, and Barry, in South Glamorgan Division. M, r. Morgan Thomas, agent, appeared for the Liberals, Mr U. C. Griffiths for the Conserva- tives. Mr J. A. Lovat Frazer and Mr J. Littiejohns were also present. There were no objections raised in the smaller outlying parishes, and in connection with several owners having property in St. Andrew's (Dinas Powis) ar.d residing at Cardiff, these were marked te vote in those places, while others residing at Penarth were also empowered to vote there, both sides agreeing to the altera- tion as being more convenient for the voters. The Revising Barrister commented upon the new form of the lists in urban districts, which are now made out in streets, instead of in general alphabetical order as hitherto. Suppose a man gave only his name to the polling clerk as William Edwards," a great confusion must necessarily arise. Mr Lovat Frazer: It is horribly inconvenient.—The Revising Barrister Who ordered the cbaoge ?-Mr W. C. Howe (the overseer): The County Council. They have ordered it to be done in all urban districts. -Mr Morgan Thomas It is a great con- venience for canvassing purposes, I believe representations have been made to the County Council from time to time to get the registers in this form, and it has now been done. The Conservatives claimed a net gain of 70 on the claims and objections presented, but Mr Morgan Thomas contests this. In St. Andrew's Parish there were 13 old lodgers claims allowed, 8 Conservatives, 2 new Liberal lodgers, 4 new Conservative lodgers, and 1 Liberal occupier. In Wenvoe there were 2 old and 7 new Con- servative lodgers claims. In Sully 3 old and 2 new Conservative lodgers claims. In Porthkerry 2 new Conservative lodgers claims. In Barry 74 Liberal owners claims were al- lowed, 38 Tory owners, 39 Liberal old lodgers, 36 Conservative old lodgers, 26 Liberal new lodgers, and 42 Conservative new lodgers. Mr Morgan Thomas asked the Revising Barrister to star all the out-voted owners in the respective parishes to vote at the place next their residence. This is made in view of the fact that at elections owners who may be down in more than one parish record more than one vote in the Parliamentary elections. This pro- vision will prevent this happening. At Penarth the Liberals had a net gain of 30. 6 _+-
A NIGHT IN A DITCH. ADVENTURE ON BARRY ISLAND. John Foley, a Cardiff man, lies at the Acci- dent Hospital at Barry suffering from exhaus- tion and exposure, as a re,.ult of a night adventure on Barry Island. Foley, who gives his address as 35, Field-street, Bute-terrace, from what he has been able to state at the hospital, was looking for a ship, and wandered about he knew not whither. On Saturday, about noon, he was found in a ditch near the switchback on the island, in a very weak and exhausted state, as if he had lain there during the whole night, exposed to the very heavy raiii which fell during several hours. He was re- moved to the hospital and attended to by Dr Bray and Dr King, and on Sunday was pro- gressing favourably. Foley frankly admitted that he bad bad a drop too much, hence the reason for his being unable to recount with any accuracy the events of the night. The only in- jury Foley received wap a bruise on the upper lip.
HUMAN REMAINS ON BARRY ISLAND. The discovery of human remains on Barry Island has led to the belief by authorities that at one time it was used as a burial place for some of the prehistoric dwellers on the land. The remains have been found deposited in the old cist form, the bodies being placed in a sitting posture with stone slat,it fixed at the back and two sides, as if the (I e,, dwere intended to look back along the path they had once walked. Looking back along life's p th, not infrequently teaches us many a lesson. The lesson taught Mrs T. Watts, of Channel View Restaurant, Redbrink-crescent, Barry Island, was that Dr Slater's Blood Tonic Tablets were always to be relied upon as a remedy for extreme debility, insumnia, and nerve trouble. Take her own actu tl experience. Soon after leaving Hereford six years ago," she said, I got com- pletely out of soite, and a prolonged attack of extreme nervous and general debility made my state very critical. I always had a feeling of lassi- tude, I could not sleep, suffered shooting pains first in my head, and then in my sile and back. Some one had to come and do my housework. The least least thing exhausted me if I walked upstairs I was obliged to sit down and rest-ehalf-way. People noticed my pale sunken cheeks, and said I was slowly but surely wasting away. Nothing would do me the least good until I tried Dr Slater's Blood Tablets. The first b"x of these led me to realise that I had got the right thing at last As I per sevtred, full of new hope my appetitite,which bad vanished completely, leturned my weary skep- less nights were no more, and that old feeling of lassitude gave way to one of renewed strength and vigour. I took several boxes of the tablets, and they have effected a complete cure. I now have no more headaches or pains in the back, or shortness of breath. The nervous feeling and the washing are also ended. It is simply wonderful. Dr Slater's Tablets are the sole cause of my recovery,and 1 un- hesitatingly recommend them." Dr Slater's Blood Tonic Tablets are at once a blood-purifier, blood- forrmr, and a general tonic, thus curing the most extreme cases of debility and wasting. They are also unequalled for sleeplessness, headache, neu- ralgia, baciache, sidtj pains, that rflri feeling, n,.t-ve trouble, I- summei-end fag," snoitness of breath, palpitation, anaemia, all female ailment-, oi..odles* and tallow complexions, St Vitus dance, locomotor ataxia, paralysis, skin eruptions, the early stuges of consumption, rheumatism, sciatica, and gout.

NOTES BY ATHLETE. The Barry Unionists played their trial match on Saturday. The ground was very heavy, and that fact, together with the mixed character of the players, told against a good game. # • • Local players and clubmen contested the ground, but a number of last season's Unionists' players were absent. The most prominent men on the field wen- 1. Green, Wtophens, A. Green, and Percy Jones. The kicking of the two latter was of a fine character. • It is a common opiuion that the man with the fairest future is Jones. Green was as strong as ever as a back. Of the game generally little could be said for the reasons already mentioned, but next Saturday week we must expect a decided advance in play if the home men are to defeat Rogerstone. t At night time I. Green, last season's captain, was again chosen to lead the team in their difficult course, with Stephens as vice-captain. Mr W. Minnis is the president of the club. Colonel Quin vice-president, and Mr Hortop the chairman of committee. The South Wales Association League invite through me application for membership of their Referees Society from gentlemen who will act judiciously, and satisfy examiners, that they have an intelligent knowledge of the rules governing the game. Of course the fee for memhership-28 -does not include insurance against mobbing. The Cadoxton Rovers opened their season with a match with Splott Windsors on the Tide Field, Cardiff. The ground was in excellent condition, and a good game was witnessed. The Rovers started play, but it was a long time before either side became dangerous. Then the Rovers exhibited some fine passing, which re- sulted in George Burbidge scoring. This put the Rovers in a scoring mood, and Burbidge again did the netdful, thus proving that he is as good out as in goal. Yet another goal was notched. The Rovers came away with a rush, and Walter Winch put the finishing touch on a good effort, but he got his leg rather badly hurt, and had to leave the field for a few minutes. • « • The Rovers now, with a comfortable lead, slowed down, and it was evident they took their opponents cheaply, with the result that they were caught napping, and before they were aware of the fact Splott bad scored two goals. Half-time arrived with the Rovers leading by three goals to two. • • The Windsor re-started and played like demons, making it very warm for the visitorll, but Percy James was playing a magnificent game, his defence being superb. Wm Gould was also playing a good game, his defence and dribbling being excellent. However, despite efforts of the players, plott again scored. • The Windsors looked like winning now but James, Winch, and Gould, defended in nice style. Tbe Rovers again woke up, ClisHold heading a nice goal from a free kick. Thegume was very exciting towards the close, and ended in a draw of four goals each. I understand that there are only three teams entered for the Unionist Cup and Medals: Cadoxton Rovers, Barry District, and Penarth Villa. There are twelve clubs in the 4th Divi- sion Cardiff League, and of these three are local. • On Monday the Unionist Club took an out- ing to Chepstow. The weather there was most enjoyable, and they spent a pleasant day. They took their band with them, and coming back, on the impartial evidence of an observer, kicked up so much row with songs, accompanied by the band, that the arrival of the train at Barry Dock Station was not known until the band stopped. Perhaps the most promising figure in the district at present, from a football point of view, is Percy Jones. He is closely run, however, in the opinion of many, by Percy James. Both names and men are similar. # The projected football tour of a smart local team next Easter has fallen through. Not on account of funds, mind you, for the team would go without funds, if need be, but because their fixture list won't let them go. A new team is the Dot-and-Carry-One Club. They are little fellows, about 2ft high, with a ball as big as themselves. Their ground is the general highway, and their members frequently appear in the police-court. Last season there were some really good clubs-as fltr as attractive names go. What has become of the Barry Dock Hearts of Oak, with headquarters on the waste ground between Travis-street and Hirwain-street ? Are they lost among the kopjies in that region. Another club on Barry Island had a field in which were prominent kopjies and telegraph poles, and often enough the men came to grief, < < Dinas Powis played their first match this season at Treorchy, and were beaten on points. Neither side put in a full representative team, but plenty of scope was given to recruits to show their quality. Though beaten, Dinas Powis played well together, and looked promis- ing. Davies (captain) and the halves were noticeable for tbeir play, and the forwards and backs did themselves credit. # Dinas Powis is the only Rugby team in the Barry district, and the form displayed on Saturday is indicative of a successful season.

The evidence of the constable and a tradesmen named John Davies was that Tobin deliberately walked up to the former, and after asking him what he wanted and using many missing words signifying his violent demeanour, he aimed a blow at him before Rogers could make any reply. The blow missed its mark, and Rogers then closed with his stalwart assailant. Both fell to the ground, and Tobin here got in a kick, which landed on the constable's body, while a blow with the fist reached his chest. Then Inspector D. Morris and Police-constable Poolman, who were about 30 yards off, got on the scene, and as Tobin continued to behave in the same unreasonably violent manner they bad to assist to get defendant to the police-statioil Tobin's brother also lent a hand. PRISONER'S VERSION was altogether different, and was to the effect that after being told twice to move on, and refusing, he was pushed by the constable, and then struck out. Prisoner's demeanour in court was very boisterous, and caused the interposi- tion of the Bench on several occasions.—Mr F. P. Jones-Lloyd, who appeared for the defen- dant, called a witness named John Jones, 48, High-street, Barry, for the defence. Mr Jones- Ll.yd (to witness): Are you a coffee tavern keeper ?—Witness No, sir, the coffee tavern keeps me. (Laughter.) -This witness, how- ever, did not see the opening cf the affair, and could only detail what transpired after the arrival of assistance.—MrT. R. Thompson, one of the magistrates, said his fellow-justice and himself had tried in vain to find some extenuat- ing citcumstancea in the c,se-some motive or provocation for prisoner's attack on the police. This was the third time he had been up for similar conduct, and he was a very violent person. It was fortunate for him, however, that the policeman had not been more seriously injured or they would have sent him to prison for a long term. Tobin was sentenced to six weeks' imprisonment with hard labour.
AN AUSTRALIAN MARVEL. A discovery which was mado a few years ago in Australia by an eminent scientist, Mr Charts Forde, is now gradually revolutionising the old methods of dealing with liver and kidney ailments and disorders of the digestive system. After over- coming apparently insurmountable difficulties, he succeeded in obtaining a purely vegetable sub- stance which has the peculiar prope'ty of acting on the human system in exactly the same way as Nature's animal substance, bile. After much care- ful study he combined this substance with some eight other vegetable ingredients, and then conct n- trated the product so obtained until a suitable dose could be compressed in the space offered by a small bean. This medicine, made up in the form of a bean for the bile," soon became widely known as Biltf Beans." Its effect on long-standing cases of indigestion, loss of appetite, weakness, nervous debility, palpitation, headache, constipation, pileg, and female ailments and irregularities, is so won- derfully satisfactory that in Australia at the present time Charles Forde's Bile Beans for Biliousness is not only a household term, but is tiynonymous with the best home medicines known. For some time now, laboratories have been open in England, and already the power of this medicine has been so well proved that the public confidence in it is daily increasing. No less than 250,000 doses are taken daily in the provinces alone-a fact which of itself is adequate proof of the excellence of this medicine as a household remedy. Charles Forded Bile Beans for Biliousness are not only a certain cure for the disorders mentioned above, but will be found invaluable in all cases of dizziness, bad breath, rheumatism, the weakening effects of influenza, and the numerous ailments which always attend a bad condition of the blood and digea ive orgaua. For female ailments and irregu- larities they are a perfect boon. There are slId by all chemists at tlditeeopence halfpenny and two shillings and uitiepence per box. Should you be in ill-health and in doubt whether or not Bile Beans are suitable to your ease, you may write, giving full particulars cf your condition, to the Bile Bean Manufacturing Co, 119, London Wall, London, E.C., and you will be honestly answered, free of charge, whether or not Bile Beans have ever cured a cise similar to your own.

NEW PASTOR AT BETHEL. BARRY. RECOGNITION SERVICES. The Rev W. Ingli James having become pastor of Bethel English Baptist Chapel, Harbour-road, Barry, a recognition service was held on Wednesday in last week. The proceed- ings opened with a social gathering at 4 p.m., when a large number of ruembers of the church and congregation and other friends sat down to tea. In the evening a service was held, Mr Richard Evans, the respected general manager of the Barry Railway, taking the chair. The chapel was full.—The secretary of the church (Mr G. Llewellyn) gave a history of the church from its commencement. He said the church started in 1891 with a band of eight followers. After a time the membership grew so great that it was found necessary to hire the Market Hall, now known as the Romilly Hall. When they had been there for some time they thought it would be best to have a building of their own. Within 12 months of hiring the Market Hall they entered their present building, with a membership of over 80. In the year 1894 they gave a call to the Rev H. J. Horn to become their first pastor, which he accepted. He laboured there for nearly six years, when he received a call from Teddingtoa. From this time to July, 1901- a period of 14 months—the church was without a pastor. In the meantime a call was sent to the Rev W. Ingli James to beeome their pastor, and this was accepted. Mr James commenced his ministry at Barry on Sunday, August 4tb, 1901.-Messrs David Howells and Joseph Kingston welcomed Mr James on behalf of the church. Two represen- tatives from the church at Ponthir, of which Mr James was pastor for ten years, spoke of his qualities as pastor and preacher, and the sorrow they felt at his departure.—Mr Henry Osborne welcomed Mr James on behalf of the Sunday School, and Mr J. H. Edwards on behalf of the Young People's Society of Christian En- deavour.—The following spoke:-Rev J. D. Liees, representing the Baptist Fraternal of the Eastern And Western Valleys of Monmouth- shire; Rev D. Davies, Pontuewydd, near Pont- hir; Rev J. A. Evans, Ebbw Vale; Rev W. G. Davies, Penarth; Rev T. Pandy John, Barry Dock; Rev Owen Jones, Barry Dock; Rev Morris Isaac, Cadoxton; and Rev L. Ton Evans, Cadoxton. The Rev Christmas J. Lewis welcomed Mr James on behalf of the Barry Ministers' Fraternal Association. -The new pastor replied with a few well chosen and encouraging words.—A vote of thanks to the ehairman concluded a most enjoyable meeting. During the meeting a trio was rendered by Miss J. Howells and Messrs J. J. Clatworthy and F. Trenchard, Mr Trenchard also rendering a solo.
Ghost Dissection at Barry. SPIRITUALISTS AT WORK. On Tuesday evening Mr Warner Clark, a well known clairvoyant, of Leicester, gave an address under the auspices of the Spiritualists' Lyceum, of Barry Dock, on What ghosts are made of." This interesting subject attracted a fair audience to the Regent Hall, who listened with interest to the matter-of-fact way in which the lecturer handled his subject. Mr Clark claimed that before the public could understand and appreciate the question of ghosts they must be educated, as they would have to be educated before they could be ex- pected to understand the sciences. It was a scientific subject, and required to be dealt with in a scientific way. The dissection of ghosts was proceeded with, the audience being the ghosts. The lecturer's remarks were plausible and appreciated.—Miss Green, of Manchester, a very good trance speaker and clairvoyant, who, as a worker in connection with the move- ment, has given thousands of demonstrations and "spirit returns," will lecture next Sunday at the Regent Hall, and on October 8th an undoubted attraction is beiug provided in securing the presence of Mr G. H. Bishop, one of the most eloquent speakers in connection with the spirituslist cause.
BARRY EVENING CONTINUATION SCHOOLS. I PREVIOUS DECISION CONFIRMED. BY THE CASTING VOTE. A special meeting of the Barry School Board was held on Thursday evening in last week for the consideration of its recent decision on the evening schools question. There were present Mr John Lowdon, J.P. (in the chair), Captain Davies, Dr Livingstone, Mr D. Lloyd, Rev Father Byrne, Dr Lloyd-Edwards, Rev W. Williams, and Mr Peter Wright. Mr owdon, in introducing the business of the meeting, said they were probably aware that last week they considered the matter of evening schools very carefully, and finally decided to close the evening schools. Since then the Technical Instruction Committee of the County Council had sent them a letter asking them to re-consider the matter. He wished to point out what he had said before—their only reason for clositg the schools was the cost, and that in such times of depression he thought they really could not afford it. He was afraid they might cost a considerable sum to the ratepayers, aud it would be better for them to hold their bands. The subjects which could be taught in the evening schools were 17 in number, and of these seven could be taught in the science and art classes under the County Council. The only ones which could not be taught were the ele- mentary subjects reading, writing, and arithmetic. Mr P. Wright wished to ask a question, and wanted to know the reasous which .induced the majority of the members of the Board to stop the evening schools. The Chairman answered that the principal reason was the cost to the ratepayers, and Mr Wright said he was not at all satisfied. If their reason was tbe consideration of the rates, how was it they did not think of it in years past ? He was afraid, if the truth were known, there was something else at the bottom of it. It seemed to him very like a political move. Captain Davies objected to these expressions. They bad been in the habit of conducting meet- ings without imputing motives for their actions. Dr Edwards expressed himself as glad of an opportunity to have the subject re-opened, as it was of such importance. It was no use their exaggerating their idea as to the cost. He had worked out the actual figures, and he felt certain that for ;C170-or, to leave a liberal margin, £ ?00—they could carry on the classes, which, considering the great need there was of the classes, was not large. Mr Lowdon had said that several of the subjects could be taught in the science and art classes, but anyone going into the matter would know at once it was use- less for the great majority of those who wished to attend the evening schools. What most of them wanted was to learn some reading and writing, to brush up their arithmetic, and do a bit of ciphering. He fully sympathised with Mr Lowdon in his ideas of economy. It was necessary for public authorities to be eiltra care- ful in spending money, but there was a danger in being too extravagant in saving rut .s—that is, if they saved them at the expense of the future men and women who, without evening schools, would be found idly roaming the streets. He once more appealed to them to allow the evening schools to be re-opened, safeguarding the expenditure by having a lesser number of subjects and a smaller and more economical staff of teachers. If they had that, he felt sanguine enough that the classes would, if not pay their way, leave a very small deficiency. Mr Peter Wrigbt and the Rev W. Williams spoke in support, Dr Livingstone and Father Byrne opposed, and on the matter bt-ing put to the meeting, there voted for Dr Edwards, and Messrs Williams, Wright, and Lloyd; and against, the Chairman, Captain Davies, and Dr Livingstone. The Chairman thereupon gave his casting vote in favour of closing the schools. Printed and Published for the Proprietor at the "Barry Herald" Offices, 117, Holton Road, 1!
