SIR,—Owing to the kindness and hospitality of Dr Kelly, I was present at a priva e dinner at the Barry Hotel on the 17th of March, which has been the object of an inspired sneer emanating from the usual source. In contradiction of the falsehood referred to, will you let me state that there was neither an Orangeman nor yet an Orange. woman present and although there was a sumptuous dessert after an excellent repa-t, there wasn't even an orange on the tahle. Wishing your respeclable and decently-conducted paper continued success. -I am, &c., C. F. G. SIXSMITH. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "BARRY HERALD." DEAR SIR,-A paragraph appeared in the witty column (?) of your contemporary's last issue relative to a pi ivate dinner which was held at the Barry Hotel on the 17th of March. I wish to inform your numerous readers that th< re was neither wit nor truth in the said para- grapli.-Yours truly, P. A. KELLY. Avoca, Barry. DISTRICT COUNCIL CONTEST IN THE EAST WARD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRY HERALD." DEAR SIR, -As one who actively and earnestly supports the HERALD from week to week, permit me to refer to the ab,ve c,iitest-a contest, I mav say, the resu't of which will materially affect the interests of East Ward ratepayers. The numb," of candidates seeking the electors' suffrages is now confined to two the Labour man ( ? )-who, ;.t the time of his nomination, rtceivt d promises of support from, amongst others, several well-knotn residents who at all times act adversely t" plogrfSs and enlighten meit t-havin g very wi.-ely withdrawn. Mr \¡\ alls' withdrawal, in a measure, atones for his unscrupulous advent. Finding that a complexity and multiplicity of candidates would lessen the chances of Dr 0 Dpn- Dell, another gentleman also had everything prepat ed to enter the fray-even his ca'ds, I am informed, had been print. d-but upon being told by a level-headed Datriet Councillor that hi chances would only equal tho-e of a black man, he paused, maturely deliberated on his prospect* of success—(or rather noti-succesi)-and plac- d his cards, not in the ratepayers' hands, but in the fire A series of calamitous events having thus erde the ratepayers have now before them two get tie- men to select Ir om-Mr Solomon Barnett and Dr O'Donnel. Mr Barnett, who is an Hetive Conse vative aud resides at Cardiff, entertd the Council nearly th:ee years ago by a majority of 8 votes over the Labour candidate, Mr T. S. Thomas. Iii I the pre-ent contest Mr Barnett is opfose 1, not by a Labour leader, but by a professional gentleman whose sympathies with labour are almost equal and uniform to those of Mr T. S. Thomas. Mr Barnett's even temper, cheerful disposition, and unswerving adherence to Conservative prin- cipled will doubtless command considerab'e sup- port but, s'r, allow me to appeal to ti,e ntepayer- to well consider, before recording thtir vots, the qualifications and past achievements of Di O'Donnell, who has served the Cadoxton rate payers for over ten yeate with efficiency and faithfulness. He has, sir, truly represented all the progressive forces in our midst. To Liberalism and Labour he has been faithful, cons ant, yea, a martyr and to the tradespe >ple he has ever been a watchful guardian, their interests, as large rate- payers, always receiving his closest attention and assistance. As a public man, it has fallen to my lot to seek Dr O'Donnell's advice as to the best course to pursue on matters not directly affecting labour. Such advice was freely given by the doctor, and after-eventa have clearly demonstrated the wisdom of his counsel and the purity of his motive. In conclusion, sir, allow me to appeal to my brother Nonconformists to exhibit the same loyalty on Monday next as they did during the recent County Council election, and thereby place Dr O'Donnell once again on our local parliament with a handsome majority. Wishing you and the HERALD'every prosperity in your endeavour to amend municipal matters, I remain, faithiully youra, p BARRY DISTRICT COUNCIL ELECTION. THE CONTEST IN THE NORTH WARD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "BARRY HERALD." SIR,-Being of the opinion that the future wel- fare of the District Council are to a great extent hound up in the coming contests for seats on the Barry District Council, I venture to take this opportunity of giving expression of strong dissent to the opposition to Mr David Morgan in the North Ward by a self-styled LaLour candidate, iu the person of Mr E. S. Phillips. A similar position was taken up by Mr Fred Wails in the East Ward, hut very fortunately for him, "Fred "has withdrawn, and now there is a clear issue between progress and reaction, and I have no hesitation in prophecying a decisive victory for Dr O'Donnell. In the North Ward there is a three-cornered fight, and, as is the case in a great majority of these fights, an attempt is being made to spit the Progres, i ve vote, thereby giving the opportunity to the third party to slip in. The organised workers will have an opportunity on Monday next of saying whether they "ill repeat the great mistake of last yar, wi.en, by running » Labour candidate, they were the means of not only defeating themselves, but also one of the mos' consistent supporters of the workers interests we have had on the District Council, and replacing him by a member whose position on the Council is very difficult to describe. The opposition to Mr David Morgan by Mr E. S. Phillips (the apostle of Labour and Liberalism on the Trades Council; and his friends I have no hesitation in saying is one sr solid lump of inconsistency, providing Mr Phillips is running as a Labour candidate and I suppose he is, or the Trades Council would not endorse his candidature. I had some difficulty in getting at the address of Mr Phillips, but I ultimately fished it out hidden away in the columns of your contemporary. Mr Phillips is coming out as the direct nominee of the Coal Trimmers' Union, and is seeking the suffrages of the electors on the grounds that the members of his society have a considerable interest as Owners and Ratepayers in this part of the dis- trict." This is his strong point, and I commend it to the Trade Union electors of the North Ward, and also to the Lobour leaders of the district for their consideration. -For the first time, to my knowledge, in this or any other district we have a Labour candidate brought out in the interests of proper y and that T 1.J lie should be supported by. certalD i^a. uui is beyond my comprehension. I have heard one of these Labour leaders say repeatedly on the plat- form and in conversation that the candidate trlat, above all others, shall at all times receive his most strenuous opposition is the one that comes out in the interests of property. Is consistency thrown to the winds in this election ? If not, why make this exception ? But perhaps consistency is only sus- pended over the election after that, go on again. When the much talked of Manifesto 1 appears, we shall know all about it. But even conceding the right of property to be represented, surely there are other interests in the district that have at least an equal claim, even to that of the coal trimmers. The Barry Company, for example, have considerable interests iu the district, but even they have not thought it necessary to put forward a can. didate in their behalf. There is one other new feature in this contest from a Labour point of view, and that is one trade society taking isolated action and bringing out a candidate in their own particular interests, and this after the Trades Council had decided, with the full approval of the affiliated societies, only to cou- test the South Ward. Yet in the face of this de- cision, a wrecking candidate is brought into the field by one society, and receives the blessing and approval of the Trades" Council. What ould be the position of affairs if every affiliated society act in the same spirit and manner as the Coal Trimmer^ • Why, all would become confusion and cha.o. A; (i yet these societies have, in my humble opinio! equal rights with the Coal Tiimmers that is. providing heads are counted, and not house.. Mr Pr illips winds up his address by Faving that "his ideas of economic principles are well known, such as is for the mutual interests of every working man—Progressive Liberty." That sounds all right, but I maintain tht Mr Phillips has plost;tuted these principles in the action he has taken, aud that I will endeavour to Provo. Mr David Morgan, the candidate whom the Coal Trimmers are to anxious to see displaced by tlelr nominee, has been a member of the District Council from its formation, having been retui n. d three years ago at the head of the poll, running ahead of such popular candidates as Dr O'D nntll and Mr William Saunders. The Trades Council at that time considered Mr Morgan, to all intents and purposes, as representing Labour, so much so that he was invited to attend the meetings of the Traces Council in the same manner as the direct repre- sentatives were invited. Although Mr Morgan did not accept the invitation, yet during the wb, Ie of his term of service he has ahrays been ready to support the demands of organi-ed labour, and in very di\ision on pure l-bour questions he tas always beln on the right side. I venture to say that there is not a single item in Mr Phillips's addr* ss that can be reduced to practice but hltt Mr Morgan has given evidence of his approval in a practical manner, always excepting the consider- able interests." Then, again, we should n t forget that Mr Morgan is a practical man, and his know- ledge as a builder has always been at the service f the Council. Take Mr Morgan away and you will remove the only member th t bus any prac'ical knowledge of the construction of buildings or drains and, surely, it is nt cessary, in these days of jerry-building and scamp-work, that there should be at least one member that understands such tilings, and not allow such matters to be alto- gether iu tne hands of the offiyta s. Experience is a dear school, but it seems there are those yet t' at will learn in no other. Have we not had sufficient experience to prove that a wrecking policy on the part of Labour must eventually recoil on the WI eckers ? How can we ever hope of getting a majl rity on the District Ci'Unci! that will be in favour of Trade Union legislation if we cany on this indiscriminate oppo- sition, and oppose our beat friends when they come to us with a cl-an record and ask for a renewal of our confidence and support. 10 conclusion, the evid nee of so many prominent Trade Unionists nominating Mr rg>n proves that the vote according supp> rt to Mr Phillips by the Trades Council is not endorsed by their con- stituents, and there is no < oubt that, on the day d eckonmg, if ihe Tiad a UDi, n sts do tlvir duty, Mr Morgan" iil be returned by a triumphant ruajori i y. -Yours truly, T. S. THOMAS, Past President and late Secretary of the Barry Trades and Labour Council. COUNTY COUNCIL ELECTION.—MR JOHN CORY'S RECORD. TO THE EDITOk OF THE "BARRY HERALD." STP.A low me to call atten ion to f c s in conn cti n with Mr Jol n Cory's work upon the Coun y Council, as I hear that attempts are being made to adversly ir fluence the pledors thereon.

No record f attendai ces has been published for the past twelve m nths, but ouring my connectioi with the Council, iL is a fact that Mr C. ry, for nin years past, has attended most of the principal meetings of the Council. It should be borne in mind that each meeting means the h ss of a wh, I dry, for the Council meet a teimtely at Neath and Pontypridd. It is qn. sti nable whether Captain Hami ton Murrell, if he were elected, wonbi show a better record, as I undeistand he is away fron Bairy a large portion d his time engaged in business pursuits elsewhere.

BARRY TRADES' COUNCIL. COUNTY COUNCIL VACANCY. MR J. H. JOSE DECLINES TO BE NOMINATED. WHO ARE THE FRIENDS OF THE WORKERS ? INTERESTING LETTER FROM MR SAM WOODS, M.P. The fornigbtly meeting of the Barry Trades and Labour Council was held on Friday evening last at the Glamorgan Restaurant, Barry Dock, Mr J. Thomas (vice-president) in the chair, and there was only a small attendance of members. ADDITIONAL DELEGATES. The credentials of Messrs P. Turner and J. Ducklis, as representatives of the Barry Dock branch of the Navvies' Union, were read and accepted. THE COUNTY COUNCIL VACANCY. With reference to the appointment of Conn cillor J. H. Jose as the nominee ot the Council to contest the West and South Wards at the forthcoming County Council bye-electionj the Chairman said a communication had been re- ceived from that gentleman The letter was read, which was to the effect that, having heard that Mr John Cory was a candidate for the election, he (Mr Jose) had taken no steps to secure his nomination as a candidate. So far as he bad been able to gar ht-r, there was no desire on the purt of the worker- to oppose Mr Cory, and, person ally, he thought it would be wise for the Trades and Labour Council to offer no opposition to one who was so well known and respected by all sections and residents of the town.—The Chairman said be did nor think the communication was exactly a withdrawal on the part of Mr Jose.-Mr E. Hughes: Are we not to have a deputation from the Liberal and Radical Association asking us to withdraw our candidate ?- Ihe Chairman I don't know. What I suggest is that a deputation wait, upon Mr Jose and ask him his intentions in refer- nee to contesting the election.—Mr T. Evans moved that a deputation wait upon Mr Jotle.-This WHS seconded Hnd carried, the persons appointed being the President, Mr J. Thomas, and Mr J. Hill. THE RAILWAY SERVANTS WITHDRAW. The Secretary read a communication from the Barry branch of the Amalgamated Society of Railway Servants stating their decision not to affiliate with the Council for the present term. —AJT T. Evans said he was extremely sorry to hear this communication, and moved that a deputation wait upon that body to endeavour to induce them to re-join the Council.-Mr J. Wills seconded, and the resolution was carried unanimously. MR SAM WOODS, M.P., AND THE TORIES. The following letter was read from Mr Sam Woods, M.P. :— House of Commons, March 14, 1898. My Dear Sir, In reply to yours, with enclosed copies of correspondence between Mr Gosc en and your member, Major VVyndham-Quin, M.P., allow rat to inform you that ou Tuesday last, March 7th, I had my motion down for dicussion cal ing atten- tion to the discharged workmen at Portsmouth Dockyard by the First Lord of the Admiralty. My motion would have been reached about 10.30 p.m. had it not been for a scandalous plot got up by the Tories just behind the Front Bench, who, in order to keep my motion from coming on, com- menced moving frivolous amendments, and causing unnecessary divisions, to kill the time. They were giggling and laughing all the time, and the stiatagem succeeded. My motion was prevented, and this after I had got the Irish and Radical M.P.'s to help me to keep a House, and three separate whips sent out for the purpose. Of course, this was all done to save the Government from an awkward position and, I think, goes to show the great lack of sympathy of the Tories with Labour difficulties. On Frid iy night I, however, got the question under discussion for one-and-a-i.alf hours, but I was i-ot able to get a iiiv sion. The rules of the House prevented me. I got as,istance from Sir John Baker, 11 K, arl, y, Mr Havelock Wilson, and Mr Maddison, but not a single Tory cpened his month a til Mr Go&chen got up to reply, ba.-ing his arguments upon the (X parte s atements received from the permanent ffitials. He beg n, not so much to answer the arguments in my stat ment as to pour out the i Js of his wrath on the head of these unfo^tui ate men—caLing them drmoralisiug agitators, dis- Uont*t in ovarchargiug for their work* ko. Then j the Tories began to cheer. I wish the working men d the country had been there to have wit- nesi-ed the see ne. T do not know your m>mbe r. I certainly got no help fiom him. I cannot say whether he was with the shameful gang above referred to. If I have the opportunity, when the proper timp arrives, I shall call attention again to his matter by moving to reduce the salary of the First Lord of the Admiralty by £ 1.000. I wish this could be done in reality. I fancy we should have mire" Vi lent agitutois" than there are in ■ he dockyards. Trusting this explanation will be considered by you a suihci, nt reply to your letter, I am, &c., S. WOODS. P-S.—You can make what use you like of this. Mr H. Hughes said he regretted the fact that Mr Sum Woods' efforts in bringii g the question forward hud not proved successful. He proposed that the secretary write to Mr Woods, thanking him for his letter and the action he had taken in the wattt-r.On being put to the meeting the motion was carried with unanimity. LABOUR DAY DEMONSTRATION. The following names were selected, with whom the secretary was directed to communi- cate, asking them if they would take part in the annual Labour Day demonstration of the Council, to be held on the second Saturday in May :—Sir Charles Dilke, M.P., and Mrs Dilk Mr T. Mann, M.P., Mr S. Woods, M.P., MrF. Maddison, M.P., Mr Wynford Phillips, M.P., and Mrs Phillips, Mr J. Burns, M.P., Mr W. Thorne, and Mr W. M. Thompson (editor of Lieynolds).

===::===- -= ATHLETIC NOTES. [BY ATHLETE.] Barry visited Pontnewydd last Saturday, and suffered a rather decisive defeat to toe tune of one goal three tries to nil. Barry were handi- capped as usual through being unable to tnrn out a full team, and several substitutes bad to be picked up. When Pontnewydd visited Barry a fortilight previously they weredef-ated by one try. During the first half of the game last Saturday Barry, assis'ed by a strong wind, forced the homesters to concede seven minors. Try as they would, however, they were una; le to score, tbe chi. f reason being, lack of com- bination in attack. The second half, however, was entirely in favour of Pontnewydd, who easily pierced the Barry defence, crossing the line four times. he game could not be c< n-i lered Iln interel-t- ing one from a spectators' point of view, the l igh wind blowing militating Hgainst accurate play. Barry had decidedly hard luck during the first half in not scoring on two or three occasions, but taken on the whole they giive the homesters a very good game. At the last meeting of the Welsh Rugby Union, held at Cardiff, the Barry Club sought reduction in the sentence of suspension for the season passed on one of their plasers (A. Jenkins) for fouling an opponent, but the appeal was not entertained, The Barry District "Socker" Club were without a fixture last Saturday. A match had been arranged with St. Margaret's (Cardiff), but on Fiidny this was cancelled, owing to the Association having ordered the latter team to play Rogerstone. Next Saturday Batry Dis- trict journey to Porth, where they will have to bul;kle up" or suffer defeat. The following is the portion of the teams in the ;outh Wales Association League up to Saturday last:— Goals Pld.

NATIONAL UNION OF TEACHERS. MEETING OF THE BARRY BRANCH. PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS. The monthly meeting of the Barry branch of the National Union of Teacliers took place on (Saturday aflernooll last nt Holton-road School, Barry Dock, the new prei-ident, Mr J. E. Thorpe, occupying the cbair. The President delivered his presidential ad- dress, in the course of which he said that although the Union was still on the same ground, fighting the same battles, and striving for the same things that their predecessors fought for years ago, the present issue of the Code proved that thtir labours bad not alto- gether been nnfruitfui. Mr Thorpe referred in gratifying terms to the fact that the South Kensington Sconce and Art Department now ceased to have control of diawins: in technical instruction, and was of opinion that they were well rid of that body with its surfeit of red tapeixtn. This,* he. said, forged the last link in the chain of inspection instead of examination. Referring to the suggestions in the Code in regard to the P.T.'s, Mr Tborpe pointed out that they were on a ba-is of the scheme recently adopted by the Barry School Board, and he was of opinion that their Board had certainly b'-conie pioneers in the matter of the conditions of P.T. s. As a P.T. under the old regime, he rather envied the P.T.'s of the present da\ for the splendid chances before them. As to edu- cational reform, be considered that no one set of regulations issued from Whitenall cvuld adequately meet the requirement-, of diff r nt localities. He, therefore, advocated fur the establishment of district educational boards, who could adopt a curriculum applicable to the needs of their districts and see that every ele- mentary school child was afforded facilities for taking full advantage of secondaiy education, and proceed still further, if desired, to the Uuiversi y. Also to form evening and manual schools, and take steps to secure better attend- ance nt school; or, summarising, the Education Board would have to provide a good sound education for every child on commercial, technical, or other desirable lines. He did not advocate the abolition of the Education Depart- ment, which would still remain the paramount authority, minus it present burden of detail. He also con-idered that the cost of education should be national and uot local, andsugg sted the abolition of the present method of raising the revenue, and the creation in its stead of a new tax placed somewhat on the s-ame basis as the present income tax. In conclusion, he thought they would all agree that for the sake of the child, the teacher, and the ratepayer, and lastly for the sake of the commercial in- terests of their nttion, the changes he bad advocated would be an advance on the system of education at present enjoyed in this country. -On the motion of Mr E. T. Williams, second- ed by Mr R. T. Evans, a hearty vote of thanks was accorded the President fur his able address The agenda of the forthcoming annual con- ference of the Union was considered, and Mr J. Bennett proposed that they instruct their repre- sentatives to support the resolution in favour of admitting ex-P.T's. to membership of the N.U.T.—This waS secflndpd; butanalllendlllent was submitted by Mr D. Smith, seconded by Mr J. E. Wensley. that ex-P T's. be ad m i i ted to the Uniun aft, r passing their scholarship ex- amination, but if after five years they had not qualified to be certificated teachers they would nut be considered members.—On being put to the meeting the amendment w%s carried. Mr J. E. Wensley proposed the following resolution: Seeii,g thtt the N. U T. is a constitution of various of teachers, it is advisa- ble that all matters apertaining to the welfare of any one class should be discussed in the N.U.T. meetings before any action be taken." Mr Wensley said that in reading the local papers some time ago he saw a notification that the ex-P.T.'s under the Barry Board bad petitioned for an advance of salaries. As an ex-P.T. he never saw the petition, neither did many others, but afr,-r making enquiries he found that the dissatisfaction did not rer-t with the ex-P.T. but with the certificated-untrained teachers. Mr Wensley said he bad recently received a report giving the salaries ptid by ô2 different boards in the country. According to this Barry paid their trained teachers £ 8 per annum ah"ve the avernge maximum for the whole country, whilst they pud their untr-i;,e(i teachers £ 30 lielow the average. He admitted that the untrained certificated teachers had cause to be dissatisfied, but contended that anything appertaining to the welfare of the profession ought to be discussed at the meeting of the Union in the fir-t place, and where a fair request was made they would all be able to put forth their efforts in support thereof. -The Chairman seconded the resolution, and said he considered the petition r-ferred to would have received better consideration had it been brought before the N.U.T., or the Assistants' Union. As it was it seemed to be a hole-and- corner affair, and they had got something which would have to stand them in good stead for some time -Mr T. Higman pointed out that the Union, by its constitution, excluded the ex- P.T.'s from its ranks, and they, tneiefore, could not ask them to submit their grievances bo a body which did not acknowledge them. He moved as an amendment that the matter be referred to the Class Teachers' Association.— Mr J. Bennett seconded, and the amendment was adopted. The secretary (Mr J. Lloyd Jones) reported ibat the sum of £ 13 12s 8d had been received 11 aid of ttie Union charities, collected solely rom the staffs of the varions scbuols, without jutside assistance of any kind, and it was de- eded that the amount be devoted to the )rpwwago fund.
