BARRY SCHOOL BOARD. THE CLERK'S POSITION. PRIVATE DELIBERATIONS. INTENTIONS OF THE APPOINTMENT. The Barry School Board met on Thursday evening in last week n*: li-,r the presidency of Mr John Lowdon, J.P., J cliail-ti-i III, when nil the members were in attend mice, viz., Captain n. Da>'i"S (vice-chairtiian), Revs. F. J. Byrne aid W. Williams, Drs. J. Livingstone and W. Li >yd Edwards, Messrs D. Lloyd, Peter W l ight, and J. Rees. THE EVENING SCHOOLS. Upon the minutes of the last meeting coming up for adoption, Dr W. Lloyd Edwards asked what was their portion in reference to evening schools ? The Chairman We have none. Those we have are under the County Council, and, con- sequently, not within the jurisdiction of the School Board. Under those circumstances I think this Board ought to direct that this com- mittee should keep a separate banking account. Dr W. Lloyd Edwards: We shall have perfect home rule then. The Chairman Yes, and full responsibility. Dr Edwards I move that, then. [ This was agreed to nern con. COAL TENDER. Mr D. Pauiett, wrote in reference to the coal contract secured by him that he did not under- take to supply best International" at 22s 6d a ton, but what was known as the International six-foot seam. A discussion took place upon the difference in quality of the 2ft, 9in. seam coal and that of the 6ft,, and eventually the matter was left in the hands of Captain Davies, Mr John Rees, and the Rav W. Williams. THE ESTIMATES. The Chairman referred to the estimates of receipts and expenditure submitted in the re- port of the Finance Committee. He pointed out that on the receipt side they would find that there had been no sum set down for the amount they expected to get under the Neces- sitous School Boards' Act. They were abso- lut ly certain to get something, and they believed they would get £ 600 for the year just ended. They would sign their application im mediately their accounts had been made up, but the Government would not pay until the audit was over. The sum of S300 could be safely put down, and he believed they would safely get S600 within the half-year. It was agreed to include this amount. Captain Davies asked about the amount set down for grant, viz,, £ 2,550. Was it not low ? The Chairman The Clerk points out that under the new regulations in respect of block grants, they would lose in round figures £100. Still, I think it is low. It might go if you are agreeable ? Captain Davies I am quite agreeable, but I thought it would be nearly £ 2,750. The Chairman: Suppose we increase it fo £ 2,650, and £ 300 with the increase will reduce the amount required from the rates by £400. This was also silently agreed to. IS IT FAVOURITISM ? The Salaries' Committee decided to make recommendations to increase the salaries of some head-teachers JE5 per annum, but in one case that of a hpadmaster-the amount re- commended was £ 10. In reply to Mr Peter Wright, it was stated that the headmaster in question was getting JE160, and the increase usually made was £ 5. The Rev Father Byrne I am always pleased when good teachers meet with just rewnrd, but in this case I must certainly say it is extra- ordinary that one man should be singled out above all others < qually capable, and some much more capable,. and the bulk of them longer in the service of the Board. To do a thing of this kind wftuld, in my opinion, De first of all odious. It is certainly a new de- parture. Then it would be most unfair to other teachers whom we have under us, and, surely, it is very unjust to the ratepayers to gtve away any amount of money in this manner without good and sufficient reason. I, there- fore; propose that all our teachers be treated equally alike. The Chairman That means that the sum recommended be reduced from £10 to f5, Dr W. Lloyd Edwards Father Byrne has not mentioned any particular case. Rev F. J. Byrne Oh, yes, I have. It is the one before us. Dr J. Livingstone Of course, that is plain enough. The Chairman asked that the name of the person be not bronght into the discussion. Dr W. Lloyd Edwards said in the case referred to the master had been appointed at an extraordinary low salary for a headmaster, seeing that they had an assistant getting within Sio of what he was getting. The same person had also been receiving the same salary for 18 months. He did not like the strong expres- sions which Father Byrne made use of. The Chairman Father Byrne's motion has not been seconded. Dr J. Livingstone I beg to second it. The Rev W. Williams also affirmed that the person in question had received no advance in salary, although he was properly entitled to it last year. Mr Peter Wright said he agreed with Father Byrne that it would be very unfair to deal with this person as an exception, provided he was under the same conditions as other teachers under the Board but, as far as he could see, the teacher in question was receiving the smallest pay of any head-teacher under the Board. True, it was the smallest school, but be was now receiving the minimum, and they wanted him to have X20 at any rate above the ordinary assistants' maximum. Captain Davies considered there had been some little misunderstanding about the matter somehow or other. A temporary salary was fixed at the start in this case, and he himself expected that under the Scale he would have had an increase of £5 last year. Mr John Rees considered that no disparity should be made, and seeing that this teacher had equal responsibilities to the other head- masters, he should be treated in a similar manner. On being put Father Byrne's motion was lost, only the mover and seconder voting in its favour. NEW OFFICES COST OF THE BUILDING. Mr George Thomas, F.S.A., attended the meeting, and laid before the members a final statement of the cost of the office buildings. The contract price was S2,415, and the extras ordered by the Board amounted to X3-) 14s, while the adjustment account of general extras amounted to S24 los 3d, the total cost being £ 2,477 9s 3d. Certificates bad been granted for £2,200 in favour of the contractor, and there still remained due JE277 9b 3d. Dr W. Lloyd Edwards As you are aware we have spent E2,400 on these new offices. It must be remembered that the Board has given up its room in the school to meet with the accommodation, and if this had to be done separately it would have cost X600. That cer- tainly was a matter that should not be over- looked. Besides that, they had to rent offices for the attendance officials, and, in round figures, they bad saved £ 1,000, so that the cost of the offices was in reality £ 1,477. Mr John Rees asked about the delay that had been occasioned in carrying out the contract ? In reply Mr George Thomas said the time specified in the contract itself was at least three months less than it should have been. In view of this the contractor had only been 13 weeks behind-hand, and as he was anxious to do it properly, and had by no means a "fat" price, this was slightly exousable. A discussion ensue"1 as to how much the Board should require from the contractor by way of penalty for the delay. Mr John Rees favoured procuring the amount it cost the Board in rent, viz., £10 8s. Others suggested more and others h ss.> It was eventually decided to impose a penalty of S10, and deduct it from the amount due to the contractor. ILLNESS OF MR HIGMAN. The Chairman said he had to formally notify the Board of what they already knew — that the headmaster of Holton-road Boys'School (Mr Higman) was very ill indeed, and he proposed that the clerk write expressing the sympathy of the Board and the earnest hope that he may soon recover and return. Rev Father Byrne seconded the motion, which was carried. It, was also decided to grant Mr Higman three months' leave of absence. APPOINTMENT. Miss Mary Elizabeth Jones, of Kingeraig- sbreet, Cardiff, was appointed to a vacancy as assistant at Holton-road Girls' School. PAINTING TENDERS. Tenders were opened as followi1 for the paint- ing of the outside of Hamilly-road and Cadoxton SCL)OUIS: £ s. d. A. Corbin, 104, Barry-road. 45 0 0 A XT D) i 'J 5 10 0 A. H. Bletso j j- 10 0 H. R. Paul and Sons. 65 0 0 T. Evans, 197, Court-road. 95 0 0 The estimate of the Clerk of Works was £ 52, and it was decided to accept the lowest tender. RESIGNATIONS-PRESENT AND PROSPECTIVE. Miss Bronwen Jones, one of the teachers, sent in her resignation, which was accepted, and Miss Merriman, Cadoxton, wrote asking for a testimonial, which it was agreed to give. 11 EPIDEMIC MONEY, OR MONEY EPIDEMIC ? The Chairman said that in Article 101 A of the Code, conditions were set out for getting money from the Board of Education in case of epidemics, and seeing that measles had at one time been very prevalent in one part of the district, and the attendance had been affected thereby, he moved that they ask the clerk to try and get some money. They might possibly get £ 10 or £ 20 in that way. It was worth trying. -Agreed. At this juncture the Chairman asked the Press to retire, and intim; d that that was all the public" business. THE CLERK'S POSITION. The Board went into committee to discuss certain matters, among which were their inten- tions when they engaged Mr Morris as their clerk; and to prevent future misconception, weaie officially informed the following reso- lution was p sse(i That tLr li rk's engagement be an annual one, and subject to six months' nctice on either side, to he given at the expiration of any year of service, unless where otherwise mutually agreed."
PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, CADOXTON, SUCCESSFUL SALE OF WORK. A two-days sale of work for the benefit of the funds of Bethel Presbyterian Church, Court- road, Cadoxton, was held on Wednesday hnd Thursday, under very propitious auspieces. On Wednesday the sale was opened by Alderman J. C. Meggitt, J.P., who was commendably brief in his remarks; and on Thursday, by Mr W. J. Williams, Parkside, Barry. The cere- monies were conducted by the pastor, the Rev J. Lewis Jenkins, and votes of thanks were accorded each of these gentleman for their attendance. There was a goodly number pre- sent on each day, but on Wednesday evening the chapel in which the sale took place was filled to its utmost capacity. The stalls were arranged in a very decorative fashion, and were laden with useful and pretty articles, while, in addition to drnperies, there where choice refec- tions, dairy produce, groceries, fruit aud vege- tables on sale, most of which were readily purchased. -Several side shows were arranged, and extensively patronised. A programme of music was arranged each day. The proceeds are to be devoted towards the Church funds, and it is hoped that a substantial amount will be realised. The following were the stall-holders No. 1. Drapery Stall—Mrs Morgan, Miss C. Rees, and Miss M. Rees. No. 2. Drapery Stall-Mrs Ben Davies, Miss R. Howe, and Miss F. Howe. No. 3. Drapery Stall—Miss Chapman, Miss Bell, Miss Tassel], and Mrs Pearson. Refreshment Stall—Mrs C. Howe and Mrs Hilcy. Fruit and Flower Stall —Mrs Clarke and Mrs A. Evans. Grocery and Dairy Stall-Mrs Meikle and Mrs J. L. Davies Vegetable Stall—Mr and Mrs Beynon. Bovril Stall—Mrs Donaldson and Mrs Lewis. A gramaphone, which was also well favoured, was in charge of Mr Donaldson, while an "art" gallery was also extensively visited. The hon. secretaries of the sale of work are Mrs Pearson and Mr J. Meikle.
Barry Technical Instruction Com- mittee. This Committee met at the School Board Offices on Tuesday evening, when there were present the Rev W. Williams, in the chair, Messrs J. Lowdon, J.P., D. Lloyd, J. O. Davies, D. Roberts, Dr O'Donnell, and the Rev Father Byrne. Mr Treharne Rees (the clerk) reported the number enrolled in each class were as follows :—Art, 2 machine construction. 40 mathematics, 21 chemistry (advanced), 14 physiolsgy, 6 botany, 7; shorthand, 24; French, 27; German, 25; theoretical music, 29 plumbing, 18 wood carv- ing. 12. It was pointed out that, inasmuch as a sufficient number had not attended the classes in botany and physiology, it was decided to leave these classes open for another fortnight, in order to see whether more would turn up. A wood-carving class has also been formed at Hannah-street Schooi in connection with the London City and Guilds. It was also reported that the County Council had given authority to form classes in ooekery, Welsh, book-keeping, commercial correspondence, office routine, and needlework, but it was decided not to undertake any classes in these subjects until next session.
Dinas Powis 'Residents Deceased. 1 OLD INHABITANTS PASS AWAY. t On Friday last one of the oldest and uiose respected inhabitant of Diuas Powis, in thr person of Elizabeth, the beloved wife of M Edward John, Church House, passed away after a long illness, at the advanced age of 74 years. The funeral took place on Wednesday, at St Andrew's, and was laigely attended. The Rev J R Williams, rector of the parish, was the officiating minister. Much sympathy is felt for Mr Edward John in his bereavement Also on the same day the village lost another of its oldest and respected inhabitants, in the person of Mr James 11 all, at the ripe age of 81 years. The funeral, which was largely attended by relatives and friends, took place at St Andrew's, the rector of the parish officiating at, the church and also at the graveside. The funeral arrange- ments in both cases weie carried out under the personal supervision of Mr James Jones, 67, Holton-road, Barry Dock, and afforded every satisfaction.
NOTES BY ATHLETE. ASSOCIATION. Saturday was a miserable day for football. Jupiter Pluvias poured down the rain in drenching showers, ani next to the players, the spectators were objects of commiseration. The Unionists were unfortunate in going off the y I I field without a victory in the game against Porth, the match ending in a draw—two goals each. ♦ Barry District weathered the storm md dff-ated the Old Higher Grade (Cardiff) by 3 goals to 2; Cadoxton Rovers ov "rune the Cardiff All Saints very PHsily by 5 to 1 at Canton, Cadoxton Juniors met defeat by 2 goals to nil while honour* were even L 'tween Barry Parish Church and Court Rovers; and the County School team, which has been doing well of late, added another victory to thi-ir credit in a match against the Island United. • Tkerf was one circumstance connected with a match on the Moors which is very touching, for at the critical moment the bH 11 bust," and there was no more football. This took place, too, before the game had progressed towards a decision. All this is sad—very sad. # ♦ The Unionists have no reason to be dolorous over the result of the Porth match. It was a friendly game, and ended in a manner that is likely to inspire a better feeling between the players in the stiff contest for the Cup on Saturday. # # Barry suffered through refereeism. Gregory, of Forth, was acting with the whistle, and it was not before Barry had found the net for the net for the third time that a score was allowed, and in the case when one was scored by Mitchell, Picken's foul was so palpable that he could give nothing less than a penall y. Then the homesters had a second goal, Williams, the centre, footing this through very prettily. With two goals ahead people considered the •natch lost-and won. It was not so, in the result, however, for after a little remissness on the part of three or four Barry men, the ball went past Sutton. Then within a minute of timQ- SOrtie declare it was after the time had expired-Porth managed to score by a fluke, and the whistle ended the game. Criticism on the form of players is withheld in view of the circumstances—drenching rail., stormy wind, and greasy turf and ball-with no proper footing for the men. Jt will suffice to say that all look forward with absolute confi- dence against the same team on Saturday. If our m"n exhibit anything like true form they will win, at least dem's my sentiments." ♦ It is to the question of the selection of referees that I would revert. There is absolutely no reason in the system of selecting a man from the same town as the teams on the field. As the referee is in a position of supreme power over spectators and players alike, it is obviously wrong to select a Porth man to referee at Barry, and a Barry man to act at Porth, for if the individual judgment of the referee is affected by bias, it must inevitably prejudice one club or the other. • ♦ Referee's decisions are very frequently the cause of unseemly conduct on the part of the spectators, and they affect the interests of the game to such a remarkable extent that this question might be discussed with considerable benefit by the South Wales and Monmouthshire Association, and Barry would do well to take the initiative in the introduction of some more satisfactory method. The match between the Cadoxton Rovers and Cardiff All Saints (in connection with the 1st Division League, Cardiff), attracted a large crowd to the Witchiil ground. In the first half, with the wind and rain at their backs, the Rovers put on four goals, the scoreis being: G. Burbidge (2), F. Johnson and Walter Winch one each. # The visitors then opened the second half with the climatic conditions in their favour but exhibited poor football, there being a lack of understanding amongst them. The Rovers added one more goal to their score, Albert Lewis cleverly beating the opposing back and obtaining a grand goal. Towards the close the All Saints secured a goal through one of the homesters heading through his own goal. Score: Rovers, five goals; All Saints, one. The Barry Dock Albions and Eastbourne (Car- diff) played a match in connection with the Cardiff and District League Fourth Division. The game was played on the East Mjors, Cardiff, in a dristzling rain, and resulted in a win for the Albions by the prodigious total of twelve goals to nil. Considering the conditions under which the match was played the Albions' combination was perfect in every department, and in our opinion they will top the League and capture those medals, or we are very much mistaken. # t This League match, between the Barry County School and Barry Island United, was played on the Schooi ground in unfavourable weather. In the first half of the game the School, although playing against the wind, soon showed their superiority, and scored two grand goals through T. Lewis and L. Rees, by which they led at half-time. In the scond half Evan Jones, by a smart bit of play, scored the third for the school, and Flint put one through for the Island. The Island, who were by far the heavier team, were well beaten at all points by their smaller opponents. The best display for the United was made by B. Lewis, a late member of the School's Second Eleven, who plays for the Island this season. ♦ » Barry Boys Brigade and Penartb Parish Church Juniors met at Ptnarth on Saturday last, and after a very one- sided game the home team retired defeated to the tune of eleven Soals to nil. A match was played between the Gladstone Villa and Witchell All Whites on the ground of the latter, and after a capital game resulted in favour of the Villas by five goals to three.
RUGBY. Dinas Powis visited Stroud on Saturday, and played that town's team. The game ended in a draw, a very creditable peformance for the local village team. F. Davies scored the equal- ising try, and every man Jack of the visiting team maintained the growing reputation of the club. # # Barry Wednesday played their first match of the season on Wednesday last at the Romilly Park, Although the new local organisation shaped well against the Hayts drapers, and in losing by only eleven points, they have much to congratulate themselves upon. The decision in the case of at least one of the tries was deci- dedly questionable, I am told.

FREEMASONRY AT BARRY. INSTALLATION OF THE NEW W.M. SPLENDID ASSEMBLAGE. On Tuesday local Freemasons held their annual high-day, on which the new Worship- ful Master would be duly installed amid all the ceremony of the craft. The gathering was held at the Lodge-room of the Barry Hotel, and was one of the best attended in the history of the Lodge This was probably on account of the popular choice of W.M., Mr J. B. Mockford, upon whom the selec- tion of the brethren fell, being highly esteemed and held in high regard by Free- masons, as well as those outside. For several years Mr Mockford, who is master of the village school at Dinas Powis, has taken a keen interest in affairs connected with the Lodge, and has performed many a task on its behalf in a clerical form. Mr John Williams, the Past Master, duly installed his successor, who was heartily congratulated. Mr Williams was himself made the recipient of a testimonial, a wine casket suitably inscribed being presented him by initiates during the year, who were very numerous. The P.M.'s of the Lodge who were present included Messrs F. P. Adey, J. Jewel Williams, W. Fraser, J. T. Hogg, F. P. Jones-Lloyd, B. D. Jenkins, and O. Horton, while Lieut.-Colonel Quin, M.P., was among those present. The visiting brethren in- cluded Mr Marmaduke Tennant, D.P.G.M. for the Eastern Division of South Wales Messrs W. A. Beer, P.M. Llangattock Lodge; J. P. McGaul, I.P.M. Ogmore Lodge; T. Rodway Hunt, P.M., and Dr Tatham Thompson, W.M., Prince Llewellyn Lodge Messrs A. T. Hopkins, Glamorgan W. H. Williams, Bute Herbert E.

SUCCESS OF A BARRY STUDENT. SECOND SCHOLAR IN LAMPETER COLLEGE. The results of the October examination at St David's College, Lampeter, for scholar- ships, have been announced this week, and it is with considerable gratification that we note the fact that second in the whole college is Mr Alcwyn Jones, St David's College, son of Mr John Jones, Holton-road, Barry Dock, who has been awarded the Traherne Scholarship of £30 and the Barton Scholarship of Z 12 6s 6d in classics. This rapid progress of Mr Alcwyn Jones in his collegiate career is exceedingly encouraging to the young student, who, we understand, is intended for Holy Orders.

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not hold ourselves responsible for the view? expressed by our correspondents.—ED. BARRY BAKERS AND THE PRICE OF BREAD. TO THE IDITOR OF THE "BARRY HERALD." SlR,-I see in the last issue of the HERALD that Mr P. Wride advocates a uniform price of 4d a quarten loaf for bread, and says that the baker gets a good pr fit out of it at that price. I should like to know w here it come from, after the master pays his man from 24* to 30,. a week and expenses for war king oven. "bich cannot be done under Is a day at. and often more. I don't think 5d a quarten a bit extortionate to cover all expenses. I am not a master baker myself, but an operative, and we like to get paid as well as any other Trade Unionist, and it would be impossille for masters to do it if they do not get the price for bread. I hope Mr Wride will go and learn something about baking before he tries to leara others. I expect he thinks the baker's life is easy. Let him try it, and I think he will alter his opiuion.—I am, &c., FAIR PROFIT.

No les a sum than £530 13s 3d has been realised by the fete held at Margam Park a short time ago in aid of the Soldiers' and Saliors' Famili s Asso- ciation Fund for the County of Glamorgan, The Hospitals Committee of the District Council has decided that no person under the influence of drink shall be permitted to visit the Accident Ward. All those who have not yet seen the programme of the Cardiff Boxing-Day Eisteddfod will do well by sending for one to Mr C. G. Johnson, Llan- granog House, Miskin-street, Barry. Members of the Cardiff Shipowners' Association are, in the light of recent decisions on questions of payment for trimming coal, going to hold a special meeting on Monday to consider the matter. On Tuesday evening a meeting vas held at Tabemaclt Welsh Independent Chapel in connec- tion with GronÍti," the special fund of the Welsh Congregational Union. At the opening of the Presbyterian Church bazaar at Court-road, Cadoxton, on Wednesday last, a vote of sympathy was passed with Mr John Meikle, Cadoxton, in his illness, Mr Meikle being a prominent member of that Church. A lamb has been born during the past week among the flock of Mr John Thomas, Holton Farm. One of the Holton-road butchers has already got the animal under his eye with a view to selling early lamb. Colonel Wyndham Quiu, M.P., has written to the Barry Libraries Committee stating that he believes he will be able to procure the Parlia- mentary Blue Books for them when the House re-assembles. Barry County School scholars sing an appropriate song. as all who know the Bultrills hill will readily acknowledge:— Up the pathway, school ward together, Comes each morning a cheerful throng." Colonel Kekewich, a brother of Sir George K-kewich, has been slightly wounded in a night attack by the Boers on a British camp. He is the hero of the Kimberley siege. Another brother is the celebrated High Court Judge. Barry trade has been greatly affected this week an account of the equinoctial gales which blew OR Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, as only four steamers "arrived^in port on those days. During the previous.three weeks trade has been unprece- dented. Notwithstanding the preponderance of evidence in favour of the footpath between Eastbrook and Penarth being a public right ef way, the sub. committee of the Llandaff and Dinas Powis District Council have decided that it was not sufficient to establish a case. And that is protecting public rights, forsooth On Wednesday, October 30th, the Barry Free Church Council will hold the annual meeting. The united choir practicing on Sunday evenings at 8.15, in the Holton-road Baptist Chapel, is a gooj sign of a great meeting. About 300 singers assemble. All the members of the choir are expected every Sunday evening. Important meetings in connection with the Presbyterian Church of Wales will be held at Cardiff on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, October 15, 16, and 17, when some of the leading men of the denomination will deliver addresses on such subjects as Temperance," Church Polity," &c. Next Tuesday, at the Barry Literary and Debat. ing Society, Mr Alfred Jackson, the president, will read a paper on Cromwell," from Hume and Carlyle's standpoint. Inasmuch as the question affects Protestantism very closely, why not combat Mr John Morley's measure of the hero of the Commonwealth. The South Wales Tonic-Solfa Conference will be held on Saturday, October 19th, at Bargoed. Mr W. T. Samuel, the secretary, is busy completing the arrangements. Papers will be read, and lessons given by well known musiciar s, and the son of the inventor of the tonic-solia system, MrJ.S Curwen. E.R.A. M, will address the evening meeting, at which Mr Alfred Thomas, M.P., will preside. Very successful meetings are anticipated. The Man Under the Clock," tkat individual who seems to know all worth knowing about local commercial schemes, hints something about an agreement between the Barry and Rhymney Com- panies, by which the former will run just from Aber Valley up to Llar.bradach, aud iustead of making their own new line alongside Rhymney's, the Barry people will run over the Rhymney line, and then cross the valley to Brecon and Merthyr wi h a new bit of railway. Another whisper is that Barry are going to take over the Brecon and Merthyr Company's lines.
Assistant Teachers' Association. Mr J. Kelly, the president, occupied the chai at a meeting of this Association held at Hoiton-road Schools on Saturday last, » hen Mr W. T. Samuel gave an interesting and illustrative address on the methods ef teaching music.
