RUFFIANISM AT BARRY. THE POLICE ASSAULTED. FOUR CASES BEFORE THE MAGISTRATES As an indication of the increase of ruffianism in the district, no fewer than four cases have been dealt with at the local police-court in which persons were charged with assaulting members of the police force. On Friday (before Mr J. S.

The officer saw prisoner creating a disturbance, and when asked to move away be became abusive. After repeated efforts to get the man away the constable took prisoner into custody, when he was kicked about the legs and body, and behaved in such a wild manner that three other constables were found necessary to remove him to the police station. Prisoner's mother gave evidence on her son's behalf. The latter was fined 20s and costs, or in default 14 days with hard labour.— Morris Fitzgerald, a seaman, was also charged with assaulting Police-constable Welsby on the previous evening opposite the Windsor Hotel.

The chief item there dealt with, he said, was the Trade Union Clauses, and they all knew the stand the members had taken. They could also see by the tone of the arguments of the mem- bers that they still maintained that steam joinery done by any person other than the contractor, was sub-letting. They, as Labour representatives, did what they could to convince them to the contrary, but the other members offered opposition to what he stated, and he simply replied that they would have a test case shortly. They would be considering tenders for new schools on the following Monday evening, but he did know whether the contractors would tender under these conditions or not. One of the members of the Master Builders' Associa- tion had told him distinctly that it would make no difference to him whether the new clauses were adopted, so it was evident that some of the contractors did not think them unfair.— Mr J. Ward asked Mr Jones to explain honestly and impartially the position of those members who could not see that sending joinery to be done at Cardiff or elsewhere, was not sub- letting. Mr Jones would probably be able to give them some idea of the mental gymnastics by which these peculiar gentlemen arrived at that conclusion.—Mr Jones replied that the members maintained, as far as he could see, that joinery work done by any steam joiner for a contractor was not sub-letting. He said at the meeting that the contractor invited so many steam joiners to examine his specification, and informed them of the amount of joinery to be done, and asked for their prices. This was given, and the work let to the lowest He believed tuat when they tested the members on the point, however, they w.ould still hold very fast to the opinion that steam joinery done by a second person was not sub-letting.—Mr J. Ward said it seemed so clear to anyone that if a man contracted to do work, and he let a portion to some one else, that he could never imagine that a School Board would dispute as to its being sub-letting. One would think that they understood the meaning of words. As to the discussion as reported in the Press, he understood thereby, but he hoped it was not the case, that Mr Jones objected to steam joinery as joinery in preference to handwork. —Mr Jones No; I did not object. The ques- tion was asked which did I prefer ? and I said I would prefer hand work.—Mr Ward said he accepted the correction. One of the members of the Board had informed him that that was the impression left. Their position as Trades Unionists was this when a school was going to be built in the district and paid for by the district, that the whole of the labour should be executed in the district. Steam joinery was part or an ordinary builder's business, and if he could not do it he ought not to accept the contract. He believed, however, that if the Board made thorough inquiries into the matter and insisted upon proper trade regulations being observed in the shops, and that the work was done by men instead of apprentices, they would find that this fad for steam joinery being made by persons outside the district was more for the purpose of getting it done by sweated labour. But he believed that very soon steam joinery would be a thing of the past. The only thing was that the Trades Council, and especially any representatives they might have on the Board, must see that those clauses were not merely put into the contract, but whenever an application was made by a contractor to sub-let any of his work, to make thorough investigation in order to see that it was done under proper conditions. He then belleveci that eventually they would have very few applications to sub-let steam joine,y, cr any kind of work.—There was no iurther discussion, but Mr Ward, in proposing a vote of thanks to Mr Jones for his report, said he was beginning to think that the School Board were a more peculiar lot to deal with than even the District Council. They did not seem to have any of the rough-and-ready common- sense of the District Council about them. The majority of the members of the School Board were doctors, scientific men—too scientific in his opinion—and he believed they would explode if they, as Trade Unionists, got an extra man returned at the next election. SCHOOL BOARD CANDIDATES. The Council then considered in private the question of selecting candidates to contest the School Board election in November, and we have been informed by the secretary that as the result of replies recived from the affiliated branches to circulars sent out on the matter, it was unanimously decided to nominate Mr John Rees and Mr Evan Jones (the retiring members) for re-election.
THE NEW VACCINATION ACT. DECLARATION BEFORE THE BARRY BENCH. Mr John Ward (the general secretary of the Navvies' Union) appeared at the Barry Dock Police Court on Monday—before Mr John Low don ;md Mr W. W. Nell-and wished to make a declaration under the provision.; of the new Vaccination Act.—The Clerk How old is your child ?—Mr Ward One year arid two weel,-s.-E-Ave you a certificate of birth ?-I have no certificate.—Why don't you believe in vaccination ?—Because I believe it is injurious to the health of the children, and probably more children have died through vaccination than any other — The Clerk Have you a conscientious objectiod ?-Yes, I have and i have successfully resisted it in two cases before.—You think it will be injurious to the health of the child ? Certainly. The magistrates eventually decided that the certifi- Cltto of birth should be produced, and Mr Ward said he would again appear on Friday next to renew the application.

DESCRIPTIVE PAPER BY MR R. C. H. DAVISON. SOME FEATURES OF THE NEW WORKS. VISIT OF THE MECHANICAL SECTION. As briefly reported in the BARRY HERALD, Mr ;R. C. H. Davison, Minsk. C.E., read an iuterestir g paper before the mechanical section of the Britis.i Association—otherwise known as Section G.-en Thursday in last week on Barry Docks, with especial reference to the new works. The president of the section is Sir John Wolfe Barry, K.C.B.. who is the designer of the docks at Bany and consulting engineer to the Barry Railway Com- pany, and Mr Davison is Sir John's resident engineer. MR R. C. H. DAVISON, M.INST. C.E. The paper, which attracted considerable atten- tion, was illustrated by 34 lantern slides. It briefly described the first dock, opened for traffic nine years ago, and then dealt in some detail with the Deep Sea Lock (Lady Windsor Lock), the Island Railway, Graving Docks, Dock No. 2, and additional dock equipment. Some of the largest vessels that have entered Barry Dock are the s s. European, of 8,194 gross tonnage, 475.9ft long, 55.2ft broad, and 35.9ft deep the s.s. Milwaukee, of 7,317 gross tonnage. The average tonnage, however, of vessels frequenting the dock is about 1,500 tons, and the average cargo about 2,500 tons. Describing Dock No. 2, the author of the paper mentions that it has an area of 34 acres. That of the main dock is 73 acres. The site has been almost entirely re-claimed from the foreshore. The northern side of the dock is for coal export, and will have 10 high-level fixed tips and two high-level traversers; the southern and western walls are for imports, and will have 21 movable hydraulic pedestal cranes, and a quay space behind them of over 600ft in depth. The eastern wall has an 80ft entrance built in it, the lower portion being temporarily built up, leaving a depth of 5ft at high water on neap tides. This entrance leads into a timber pond of six acres, and by passing by a 20ft opening through the railway eaibaukinent that encircles it another TIMBER POND of 35 acres is entered. xo provide for locking at neap tides the latter can be used as a reservoir of water for the docks, as the 20ft passage will be fitted with wooden gates. The tip towers on which the tips stand are 300ft apart and of masonry. Those at the western end have pitched slopes between them, and those at the eastern end, where the foundation is good, have walls. Th. object of projecting the tips beyond the line of the dock side is to enable vessels to acarf, that is, the bow of a vessel at one tip can lie inside the stern of the vessel at the next tip, and so on. The dock walls, excepting those between the tip towers, are vertical and of rubble masonry, the top 20ft having a punched face projecting forward so as to coyer the rock face-work of the lower portion. The height of the walls from dock bottom to coping is 46ft 6in. The southern wall is 3,338ft long and straight. The hydraulic pipes aud maiuil are carried at the back of the walls under the crane roads. The foundations are on msrl, or mag- nesium limestone, and no difficulties we?e experienced in the dock, excepting in making the slopes and getting in the ° DEEP FOUNDATIO-NS, when some slips took place. The junction cut joining the two docks is 1,000ft. long, the width jo at the main dock being 130ft,, whieh narrows to 80ft. as it enters Dock No 2 through a masonry passage. At this passage there is a sliding wrought- iron box caisson gate, 88ft. 6in. long and 2oft. broad, with a lifting deck to carry the road and railway traffic. When not in use the deck is lowered and the caisson slid into a recess under the quay. The caisson gate has two faces and can take the pressure on either side, so that the level of Dock NIit 2 may be kept either higher or lower than the main dock at tide time. The caisson gate has three large sluice-ways through it, giving an area of 330 square feet. The weight on the sill is regulated by air-chambers. The sides of the junction cut have pitched slopes passing under timber jetties, which extend along each side, with gangways from them to the shore. It was origin- ally intended to use two sections of timbering, one to be built in the dry and the other after the DAM WAS REMOVED. But the ground proved to be extremely bad and full of water, want of space rendered it impossible to take out the mud to a flatter slope than 1 to 1, and the proximity to the main dock required the most absolute caution. The seetion in the dry was not carried towards the main dock as far as it was at first intended, but an intermediate section was decided upon, which was built with the junction cut flooded to a depth of 16ft between the dam and the caisson gate. As the pitching and slopes were brought up, the water was raised by means of a 15iik syphon from the main dock. Dock No. 2 on its completion was also filled by the same means, the water passing through the caisson gate sluices from the junction cut. The dam next the main dock having been thinned down as far as it was deemed safe, by means of winch handcart bogey roads, the water in the junction cut was raised to the same level as that in the main dock, and the top of the dam worked off into waggons and dredg- ing started. AX INTERESTING DISCUSSION followed, and several members expressed their views in eulogistic terms of the modern character of the whole of the works. Subsequently a hearty vote of thanks was tendered Mr Davison for his able, interesting, and instructive paper.
OPENING OF THE NEW DOCK. A SURPRISE FOR THE PARTY. The members of the mechanical section on Saturday visited Barry to inspeet its modern clocks and railway works. The party, numbering about 100 ladies and gentlem. n, were conveyed ta Barry in Gre,¡,1, Weatern Railway saloon carriages via Cardiff, and were met by Mr Richard Evans, the general manager of the company Captain R Da vies, harbour master Mr J. H. Hosgood, loco- motive superintendent Mr D. W. Roberts, shipping superintendent Mr Butler, traffic superintendent; Mr R. C. H. Davison, M.Inst C.k., the engineer and representative of Sir Wolfe Barry A-Jr R. Hollow-day, agent of Messrs Price and W ills, the contractors for the new docks and other officials. The carriages were first taken along the siainga of the new dock, where the sub- stautial character of the work was observed and generally commented upon in very favourable terms. A halt was made at THE CAISSON, which carries the railway across the entrance of the dock. This W6S worked by means of hydraulic power on Tuesday last, and access to the dock was gained for the first time on that day. The im- mense structure, which is 80ft in length and of considerable weight, w is very easily man^pulati d aud in a couple of minutes it was removed from the entrance into the chamber prepared for its reception on the no; them side. The party then inspected the ballast cranes now being erected on the south side of the dock, a- d which, with the 7,000ft of quayage space available, will shortly be covered with warehouses, built for the purpose of developing the impost trade of the port. The low water pier, landing stage, deep water lock, and the entrance channel were next viewed, together with the new works in course of construction in con- nection with the Island Railway and Commercial dry dock extensions. A GENTLE SURPRISE.—OPENING OF THE NEW DOCK. A pleasant run round the old dock in steam and electric launches preceded a surprise which Capt. R. Davies, the harbourmaster, had prepared for the whole party, who were now joined by Sir Wolfe Barry, the consulting engineer of the Barry Railway Company, and Mr Archibald Hood, the deputy chairman of the company. The launches had gone round the dock when the dredgers at work in removing the dam that remains between that and the new dock were towed out of position, and the launches steamed into the No. 2 dock for the first time. The harbour- master's l'unch I. d the way, and yiutual congiatu- htions were exchanged as the vessel steamed up the huge dock with its 34 acres of water area. THE LUNCHEON. Subsequently the whole party repaired to Culley's Hotel, Barry Dock, where they were entertained at a sumptuous luncheon by the directors of the Barry Railway Company. Mr Archibald Hood presided, and the usual loyal toast having been honoured, The Chairman 'submitted the toast Success to the Mechanical Section of the British Association," and remarked that they could not have visited Barry under more auspicious eircumitances than they did that day with Sir John Wolfe Barry as their president. That eminent gentleman had been closely connected with the Barry tailways and docks since theirjinitiation, and as a company they felt very grateful to him for his excellent services. (Hear, hear.) It would not be necessary to say a word of Sir John Wolfe Barry, because they were surrounded by his works but skilful and ab!e though he was, he could not have carried out those works without money, and that had been freely granted him. It was pleasing to find from their president's speech that he occasionally talked about the staff and life and the supply of wheat. It was particularly encouraging to think that even if they were to live by bread alone they should not starve, and that SCIENCE WOULD COME TO THEIR AID. In Scotland they knew what it was to subsist on oatmeal, and in olden times men went to battle carrying a sack of oatmeal on their backs. (Laughter.) As to the Barry Docks, they would find them detailed in the able paper read by Mr Davison—(cheers)—but what distinguished it from other ports in the Bristol Channel was their low water entrance. On behalf of his co-directors he extended them all a hearty welcome. (Cheers.) Sir Wolfe Barry responded to the toast as president of the mechanical section. Mr Hood nad told them of the inter* st which he desired them all to feel- in the new docks, but in the many- sided works of the British Association all the sections had more or less contributed to the works which they had seen. They had their mechanical parts of the works, the geographical and the anthropological. With regard to the latter he greatly EULOGISED THE DIRECTORS for the indomitab'e peiseverance, firm grasp of detail, as well as of generalities which they had evinced from the first ill connection with their many undertakings, and in conclusion he declaied that no man could have been treated with greater consideration and greater confidence than he had during the twelve years of his connection with the company. (Applause.) Sir Truman Wood, secretary of the Society of Arts, submitted the toast Success to the Barry Company," and wished them as great prosperity in connection with the new dock as with the old. The Chairman replied, and in the course of his remarks, said that while they all put their shoulders to the wheel in order to achieve success, they had been nevertheless under a cloud, and were now, he hoped, emerging once more into pleasant sunshine. Personally, he very much deplored the recent terrible coal dispute. He had no doubt, however, that the Barry Company would before long be able to resume their 10 per cent. dividend. (Cheers.) Subsequently the party were conveyed to Barry Island, and a few pleasaut hours were spent on the golden sands of Whitmore Bay prior to the return to Bristol.
NEW SCHOOL FOR CADOXTON. THE CONTRACT LET. A special meeting of the Barry School Board was held on Monday evening last at Holton- road School, Barry Dock. Mr J. Lowdon, J.P., presided, and the other members present were Captain R. Davies (vice-chairman), Mr E. Jones, Mr J. Rees, Mr D. Lloyd, Rev W. Williams, Dr W. Lloyd Edwards, Dr O'Donnell, and Dr Livingstone, with Mr W. H. Lewis (clerk) and MrR. Treharne Rees (deputy-clerk). PROPOSED HANNAH- STREET SCHOOL. The meeting had been called for the purpose of considering the tenders for the construction of the proposed Hannah street School, Cadoxton, for which the following had been received:— £ s. d William Britton, Barry Dock 14,694 14 9 Samuel Slieptoti & Son, Cardiff. 15,365 10 0 Watkin Williams, Pontypridd. 14,535 0 0 Maiuwaring & Davies, Llanbradach 12,905 0 0 John Linton, Newport. 14,700 0 0 Alban Richards, Barry Dock 13,500 0 0 James Allen, Cardiff 15,460 0 0 E.

Budgeon, Cardiff, is the architect of the building, and his estimate was stated to be £ 14,G31. DISTRIBUTION OF PRIZES. Mr E. Jones proposed a resolution to the effect that the Board ask the head teachers of the different departments, with their staffs, to arrange entertainments, or something of the same character, in connection with the forth- coming distribution of prizes to the scholars for regular attendance. Mr Jones said his idea was to deepen the interest of parents in the education of their children, and by holding the gathering in a hall or other building, and not in the schools, they would be able to secure a larger attendance.—Mr J. Rees seconded, and referred to the success which had attended similar gatherings arranged by the head-teachers of the Evening Continuation Schools.—Mr Jones' proposition was unanimously agreed to, z, and Dr O'Donnell, Mr D. Lloyd, and the Rev W. Williams were appointed to co-operate with the Cadoxton teachers in carrying out the scheme; Mr Jones, Dr Lloyd Edwards, Mr Rees, aud Dr Livingstone with the Barry Dock teachers; and Mr Lowdon and Captain Davies with the Barry teachers.
EXTENSION OF BARRY BOUNDARIES. DINAS POWIS WILL OPPOSE. A meeting of parishioners of St. Andrew's- a portion of which it is proposed to annex to the Barry District Council area-has been held at the National School-room, Dinas Powis, for the purpose of considering the advisability of opposing the scheme. The room was well filled. Mr J. Isaac (vice-chairuiau of the Parish Council), occupied the -,hair, and several speeches were delivered against the proposal of the Barry District Council, and the chief among the arguments adduced was the fabulous amount of the indebtedness of the Barry Council upon loans, &c. L'pon being put to the meeting, it was decided, with only two dissentients, to strenuously oppose the annexa- tion scheme at the Council inquiry, when the latter will be held.
DETERMINED SUICIDE AT BARRY DOCK, MARRIED WOMAN STRANGLES HERSELF. DRINK AND DEPRESSION THE CAUSE. Last Monday morning, shortly after nine o'clock, a married woman named Elizabeth La very, wife of a boilermaker, named Josiah Lavery, living at No. 3, Evans-street, Barry Dock, committed suicide in a most determined maimer by strangulation. The woman gave birth to a child about a fortnight ago, and her husband, who was away at Barrow-in-Furness working, sent her some money, which, it is alleged, she spent in drink. The husband arrived home last Tuesday and found the home in a very undesirable state. His wife, however, continued drinking, and on Sunday the couple quarrelled about her neglect in not providing proper food for the children. It is not known whether this preyed upon her mind, but after getting downstairs on that morning fhe re- turned, and in the bedroom she tore a blind into shreds, and by means of one of the pieces tied tightly around her neck, she strangled herself. The son—Willie—found his mother shortly afterwards lying on the floor, and the father, rushing up, found his wife apparently lifeless. The cloth was cut from the throat immediately, and Dr. W. Lloyd Edwards, who was sent for, declared on examination that life was extinct. THE INQUEST. This was held before Mr Reece, jun., coroner, at the Police-court on Monday. Evidence was tendered by Josiah Lavery, the husband, and the son, William Lavery, who first found the mother lying on the floor in an upstairs room Police-constable Thomas Harris, and Dr W. Lloyd-Edwards. The jury eventually re- turned a verdict of "Suicide whilst temporarily insane."
CLUB CRUSADE AT BARRY. THE METROPOLITAN CONVICTED. CLOTHES-HORSE FOR ATHLETIC PURPOSES. HOW TO FIT OUT A LIBRARY. Superintendent J. F. Giddings, of Barry Dock, proceeded with his twenty-first prosecution during this year against alleged bogus clubs io this district on Friday, when T. James, the steward of the Metropolitan Club and Institute, was charged with selling liquor without a licence on the premises at Jewel-street, on the 7th August. The magistrates on the bench were Messrs J. S. Bachelor and J. Lowdon. Mr J. H. Jones, solicitor, appeared for the prosecution. Mr Jones, in opening the case, said that an indi- cation of the part which defendant took in the promotion of the club might be gathered from the fact that he was a member of the committee, and had voted in favour of his own election, and re- ceived certain small gratuities. The treasurer was also allowed two pints of beer on each occasion that he visited the bank. Since the opening of the club there was no less a sum than jE60 4s 6d not accounted for in the books, and all the original members had been proposed either by defendant or a member of his family. Police-constable R. H. Thomas stated that in company with P:ice-constable? Harris aud Herbert Evans, he visited the premises on the 7th August, and they found the front r- cm fitted up as a bar, with counter, a piano, and a few chairs. In the room declared to be a reading-room, there were between 20 and 30 volumes of books, purchased from Messrs Howell and Co., the well-known Cardiff drapers, at 32-d each. Twenty men were found en the premises at the time of their visit. A room on the second flo. r was described as the athletic room, but the only things it contained were a couple of clothes' horses. (Laughter.) There were two 36-gallon casks of ale behind the bar, but very little spirits and aerated waters. One man hed beer before him in the reading-room, whilst the greater number of them were drinking in the bar. D fendant, in reply to the magistrates' clerk, said he desired to give evidence 0.1 his own behalf, and deposed that he always understood that the club was an absolutely bona fide institution. He was properly appointed as steward, and received nothing in addition to bis salary. With the ex- ception of a clock and piaiio, everything on the premises belonged to the club. Cross-examined by Mr J. H. Jones The club was started in February, and prior to that time witness was steward of the Victoria Club for a couple of months. This club broke up, and the present club started shortly afterwards. Prior to thac witness was also secretary of the South Glamorgan Club, and the Metropolitan Club was started in the same prelTllses.- He came into the district 12 months ago last November, and before that time he worked on a farm. Some time ago he was the licensee of a public-house at Llantwit, where he was committed more than once for offences against the Licensing Laws. The South Glamorgan Club had also been broken up, and before becoming connected with the Victoria Club, witness owned a beer houses. After the last- named club had ceased to exist witness lived on the premises until the Metropolitan Club was started, but denied that the rent was paid out of his own pocket. The meeting at which the Metro- politan Club was started was not called by himself, but his son proposed many of the resolutions, and among them the one which appointed his father as steward. Edward Yates the secretary, was called by the defendant, but could give no evidence. In the course of cross-examination by Mr J. H. Jones, witness stated that he received 30s a week as salary up to the time of the raid. He acted as secretary on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings in each week, and on Saturday as door-keeper, and on Sunday as door-keeper aud librarian. Witness had previously been. connected with Chapman's club in Splotlauds, Cardiff, and received 10s a week as salary. Mr J. H. Jones Before you came to Cardiff from Manchester, how many clubs were you con- nected with ?-Not one. Didn't you tell Police-constable Thomas that you were connected with clubs in Lancashire and had passed through your apprenticeship ?-I didn't tell him in that way. Several invoices were now shown witness which had been made out in the name of Thomas James, but these had since been altered to the name of the club. The Bench ultimately imposed a fine of 4:50 and costs, or in defauit one month's impiisonment with hard labour. ELEVEN PERSONS CHARGED WITH AIDIXG AND ABETTING. At the close of the above ca-e the following persons were marshalled in the dock before the Bench charged with aiding and abetting Thomas James in the commission of his offence :—Edward Yates, secretary Frederick S. Hobhs, a former treasurer; Joseph Taylor, the chairman of com- mittee and other members of the committee named respectively-Wm. Long, George Garrett, John Wynne, John Wes'acott, Charles Ball, David Evaus, William Tatem, and Charles Godfrey. Mr J. H. Jones explained the connection of each of these persons with the club, and the defendants all pleaded for leniency, and claimed that they considered it a bona fide institution, and conducted on the best possible lines. It was proved that Taylor had been convicted on two occasions for selling beer without a licence and once for ille- gally dealing in beer. The Bench dismissed the case against Hobbs, who had rendered every assistance to the police. Yates and Taylor, wh", they considered, had made money out of the club, were each fined f5 and costs, or in defeault one month with hard labour Long was fined f2 and costs and the others weie all cautioned and discharged. j
