EXCITING FIRES AT BARRY. TWO HOUSES COMPLETELY GUTTED. Two fires occurred in the Barry district in the early hours of this (Thursday) morning. About 2.30 a m. the Central Station received the alarm of an outbreak having taken place at No. 180, Holton-road, a shop and premises occupied by Mr A. F. Thorning, hairdresser and tobacconist. The fire was first seen by I Thomas Farrington, living next door, and on the police arriving they found a back sitting- room on the down floor well ablaze. Thorn- ing had made his escape through the back bedroom window, but Mrs Bateman, the occupant, was screaming for help from the front widow, to the ledge of which she clung. Police-sergeant Phillips, by means of a ladder, rescued the woman, and in about 20 minutes after a copious supply of water had been used from the hydrants near the fire was extinguished. The conflagration was confined to the sitting-room, all the furniture in which was destroyed. Within a couple of hours afterwards a flre alarm was received from Palmerstown, where a house-No. 15, Palmer-street—occupied by Mr George Henry Musgrave, was re- ported to be ablaze. The Cadoxton police, under Sergeant Davies, were joined by a strong contingent from the Central Station, including Deputy Chief-constable Giddings, Inspector Morris, and Sergeants R. H. Thomas and Phillips. The occupants had a narrow escape, and there appeared very little hope of saving the house, which is situate at the corner. The house adjoining, which is unoccuDied. also caught fire, and the efforts J.- of the police were required to prevent the flames spreading along the row, the residents removing their furniture owing to the danger. The greatest excitement consequently pre- vailed, but the police succeeded in their efforts. The damage amounted to several hundred pounds, and in both cases tne losses are covered by insurance.

BARRY DOCK WELSH METHODIST ANNIVERSARY. The anniversary services of the Jerusalem Welsh Calvinistic Methodist, Barry Dock, were held on Sunday and Monday last. The services held on both days were well-attended, the Revs W. Lewis, Pontypridd, and R. R. Davies,Aberaman, delivered stirring sermons,
WESLEYAN CHURCH FOR DINAS POWIS. STONE LAYING CEREMONY. INFLUENTIAL ASSEMBLAGE. In bright sumuier weather and in the pre- sence of a numerous and influential assembly memorial stones were laid on Wednesday afternoon in last week of a new Wesleyan Methodist Church building at Dinas Powis. The cause of Wesley at the village has a history of little more than a quarter of a century, but it was 25 years ago, on the nth July, that the foundation stone was laid by Mrs Carr, wife of the Rev James Carr, of the building, which has done admirable service, and will in future be used as a schoolroom. Upon a site adjoining, recently purchased from Major-General H. rl. Lee, the proposed new chapel will be erected, at a cost of about L2,000, the accommodation being for 300 worshippers, the contract being let to Mr. Britton, builder, Barry Dock, while the archi- tect is Mr Budgen, Cardiff. Prior to the erection of the former chapel worship was conducted in the parlour of the Rev J. Carr, father of Mr Lascelles Carr, late of the Western Mail, and also in the club room of the Cross Keys Inn. The minister at pre- sent in charge is the Rev Thomas May, M.A., of Cadoxton, and is connected with the Penarth and Barry Circuit, of which the Rev Thomas Hind (Penarth) is superintendent minister. The cause is likely to he sup- ported -by influential Wesleyans residing in locality, inasmuch as Sir Thomas Morel lives at St. Andrew's in the summer; Mr Arthur Hibbert, as is publicly known, has also pur- chased Settrington, a deligthful residence a few hundred yards away and Mr and Mrs R. Gibbs, and Mr and Mrs Humphrey Wallis are already faithful attendants. The building fund has already received very substantial support. Approximately, the amount required will be £ 2,00o, and already some three or four very large sums have been promised by Mr and Mrs Humphrey Wallis, Mr and Mrs R. Gibbs, and Sir Thomas and Lady Morel and others, the aggregate amount being over Zi,ooo. At the ceremony there were among others present Mrs and Miss R. Gibbs; Mr, Mrs. and the Misses H. Rad- cliffe, Penarth Revs Thomas Hind, W. D. Pellatt, John Jeffreys, Thomas May, M.A., Mrs and Miss Cory, Penarth Mr Tom and Mrs Morel, Mrs Moxey, Mr John Lowdon, J.P., Barry; Mr and Mrs Naldrett, Dinas Powis Dr T. F. Roche, Mr Lester Jones, Cogan Mrs and Misses J. H Jose, Barry, &c., &c. Miss Cory laid the first stone, and was presented with an edition de luxe of the work, "Wesley his own Biographer," Mr Humphrey Wallis making the presentation referring to the great work done for Method- ism by the grandparents and parents of that lady. Miss Morel who laid the next stone was likewise presented with a similar work by Mr John Lowdon, J.P. Miss Radcliffe laid the third stone, and was presented by Mr Tom Morel, who referred to the charitable disposition of Mr H. Radcliffe and the con- nection of the family with the district. Mr Henry Wright who laid the other stone on behalf of the Sunday School was presented with a volume, Mrs R. Gibbs handing over the gift. Then the Sunday School children laid purses containing the money collected by them towards the fund on the stone, the whole amounting to ^17, the purses having been generously provided by Mrs R. Gibbs, who also augmented the collection with a £5 note. The Rev Vaughan Jones subsequently delivered an address, and at the close it was announced amid cheers that the total sum collected that afternoon was ^115. The visitors and friends then partook of tea hospitably provided beneath the shades of the clump of trees leading on to the Common, and in the evening a public meeting was held at the Welsh Methodist Chapel, when there was a crowded audience, the whole of the proceedings of the day being very suc- cessful.

ECHO OF THE ELECTIONS. PRESENTATION TO EX-COUNCI l-LOR WHITE. TESTIMONIAL BY HIS FRIENDS On Tuesday evening, at the Regent Hall, Barry Dock, there was a goodly number of persons present on the occasion of an in- teresting presentation to ex-Councillor A. T. White of a purse of gold and an illuminated address. The chair was occupied by Mr S. R. Jones, ex-president of the Barry District Ratepayers' Association The Chairman, after opening the meeting, declared that the gathering of ratepayers that evening was to demonstrate their attachment for Mr White, who had ren- dered them service for which they must all have felt grateful. Mr White had shown himself to be a man capable of occupying important public positions. (Hear, hear.) Without hesitation, he could declare that he had proved himself to be an able and efficient councillor, and had shown them by his action upon our public body that he had at heart, true honesty of purpose. (Cheers.) His great honesty of purpose, perseverance, strength of character, and sound adherence to principle were prominent characteristics lof Mr White, who had exhibited rare British pluck. This was a trait that real Britishers were not slow in recognising. Then Mr White had been thoroughly con- scientious in the discharge of his public duties, and had, in his faithfulness to con- science, sacrificed a great deal in the in- terests of fellow-men (Cheers.) For this reason Friendly Society work had become a second nature to him, and the time, he believed, was not far distant when Mr White would be re-called to public life in the town. At any rate, Mr White was worthy of the best that working men and ratepayers in the town could give him, and the presentation, though good, was not so great as he (the speaker) could have wished. In conclusion, he presented Mr White with a beautiful illuminated address and a purse of gold. The address read as follows :— ALFRED THOMAS WHITE, ESQ. On behalf of a large number of ratepayers iu Barry, we dtsire your acceptance of this address, together with a purse of gold, as a token of our esteem and respect, and in appreciation of yuur work on the Barry Urban District Council for the past three years. As a member, your conduct com- mends itself to the town generally. Your independent action and force of character have been powers in the public interest. You have fought for efficiency and economy against vested interests and extravagance, and the personal sacrifice you had made is evidence of the sterling quality you have so generously devoted to the public service. "As a representative, yuur watchful care over labour interests has secured just recogni- tion from the Council, and earned for you the esteem and gratitude of working men. We know of your excellent Friendly Society work, with the gratifying result of your election as vice-president of the United Ancient Order of Druids. "That you may long be spared to enj-y the confidence imposed in you by your many friends, on whose behalf we sign, are the sincere wishes of S. R. Jones (chairman), W. R. Lee (vice-chairman), J. Price (treasurer), E. B. Smith-Jones, W. Harpur, D. Hamer, D. Herbert, LI. Hughes, A. J. Hobbs, T. Greatrex, and W. Walters, hon, sec." Mr A. T. White, in reply, declared that his feelings could not find adequate expression in words under such circumstances. While he did not deserve all that had been said of bim, still it was true that he had acted conscientiously in all his public work, with no desire of gain or of appreciation beyond the esteem and regard of his fellow-men as acting iu their true interests. Instead of preventing him from going forward, it was a strong incentive for him to do what he could on behalf of the town. The speaker paid a warm tribute to his election committee and the noble work they had done on his behalf. (Cheers.) Personally, he was in no way dismayed, but, like them, was pre- pared for the fray whenever they called him into the arena. (Cheers.) In conclusion, he returned them his heartfelt thanks, and pro- mised to treasure the testimonial as one of the family heirlooms to be banded down to pos- terity, and thus encourage others to follow in his footsteps. (Cheers.) Mr W. R. Lee said that for 18 years he took no active interest in municipal or political elec- tions, but owing to the circumstances connected with Mr White, and in order to express his appreciation of the work which Mr White was doing, he came out into the contest to assist him. Then, again, he found a lack of British fair-play in dealing with him, and this made him enthusiastic to fight for him. As a friendly society man, ha testified to the just and pre- cise manner in which Mr White did his work, and as one with Labour interest deeply at heart, he had shown others what were the grievances from which labouring men most desired redress. (Cheers.) What gave him satisfaction, too, was the candid and honest way in which his late opponent had said that after a heated battle, in which every gun was brought to bear, he had not a word to say against Mr White. (Cheers.) If Mr White wished to contest again, he would go with him iuto the fight. (Cheers.) Mr Harpur, Mr James Price, and others also bore testimony to the sterling qualities Mr White had always exhibited both in public and private. Councillor E. B. Smith-Jones declared that Mr White had ttood the ordeal to the satisfac- tion of the ratepayers and of the rown in general. The need of Barry was men, and they must yet secure such men before they could declare that local self-government iu the town was upon that ground on which Csasar's wife stood. The present combination on the Dis- trict Council, which had succeeded by its machinations in putting Mr White for a short time from office, had also boycotted the only person that was in active sympathy and co- operation with Mr White. (Cheers.) Mr Jenkins (Cadoxton) followed with his testimony during the 10 years in the interests of Druidism, and said that justice was the chief thing wanting in the last election. In the words of a Welsh regiment, they were van- quished, but not disgraced. Mr Wm. Oliver, who next spoke, said he believed thoroughly that the town had lost a fearless and thoroughly conscientious repre- sentative. Mr W. Walters (the hon. sec.), Mr R. F. Brent, and Mr A. J. Hobbs also spoke, and on I the motion of Mr White, seconded by Councillor E. B. Smith-Jones, the chairman, the hon. sec., and hon. treasurer were also thanked.
DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT BARRY DOCK. ENGINEERING WORKS DESTROYED OTHER WORKS THREATENED. A large foundry and works at Barry Dock belonging to Messrs Gould and Wheeler were destroyed by fire in the early hours of Wednesday morning, the damage done amounting to several thousand pounds, and a number of men will be temporarily thrown out of employment. The works are situate between Nos. 5 and 6 tips, near the No. I dock, and adjoining the extensive works of Mr C. H. Bailey running back into the cul-de-sac created by the tip roads. Shortly before 1.30 some men from a signal cabin on the railway above observed an unusually bright light in the iron foundry, but, believ- ing that the workmen were engaged inside, took little notice of it. Presently, however, a huge flame shot through the corrugated iron roofing, and then it was unmistakable that a fire had broken out and had taken a firm hold of the building. The dock police were summoned, and with Sergeant Light and a strong posse came Mr Blainey, one of the berthing masters. Dock workmen at once got a hose attached to the nearest standpipe, about roo yards from the works, and operated with a jet of water. Inspector D. Morris, together with Sergeants R. H. Thomas and Phillips, arrived shortly after- wards with appliances and a number of men from the Central Station, and these were joined by Sergeant Abraham and the men from the Barry Station. The horses had been removed from the stables shortly after the discovery of the outbreak, but all efforts were concentrated upon preventing the flames spreading to the oil and paint stores connected with Mr C. H. Bailey's works, which are attached to the main workshops. Notwithstanding repeated interruptions through the necessity to keep the traffic of the dock going on the railway over which the hose-pipes were laid, the police stuck to their work and succeeded admirably. Subse- quently the water supply was supplemented by the aid of one of the Barry Company's steam tugs pumping from the docks. Both the iron and brass foundries, the pattern shop and the stores belonging to the firm were, however, completely destroyed, the fire not be extinguished until after six o'clock. Mr Gould was on the scene, and Mr Graham, manager of the Tyne Engineering Works, also arrived early with Mr Sanderson and a number of employees in view of the serious jeopardy to which their buildings were ex- posed. The damage is covered by insurance, but its exact extent cannot yet be ascertained. Valuable machinery and plant have been destroyed, the buildings burnt, and in the pattern shop in addition to the expensive collection of casting patterns were the tools of the workmen. Great inconvenience will doubtless be caused in consequence of the outbreak, the foundry being the most im- portant in the district, supplying with one or two exceptions the whole of the ship-repair- ing firms on the dock-side at Barry. -H __0_-
BARRY COUNTY COURT. TUESDAY.—Before His Honour JUDGE OWEN. GANG SHARING. The practice of sharing in a gang of coal- trimmers was explained in a case in which William Jenkin Lpwis sued James Morgan, a fellow ganger, for 10s, money which defendant had collecied on his behalf, but had failed to hand over. A similar action was also brought against Morgan by another coaltrimmer named J. Pook. Morgan was empowered to receive their money from the leading trimmer at Cardiff, and he acknowledged receiving 12s 6d due to each plaintiff, but had only paid them 2s 6d.— Judge Owen (to defendant): I suppose you went on the spree with it ?—Defendant: Yes, sir.—Judge Owen: Is this the way you treat one another? It is very much like stealing. You go and receive money for a man, and the rest you spend on the spree. You must pay the 10s at once, and also pay the costs of the men coming hear to-day. IGNORED HIS SUBP(ENA. An action was brought against Edward Woodham, a tradesman, by Henry Cooper. Defendant did not appear, and Mr J. Arthur Hughes stated that there was a note in Court to the effect that defendant had lost the train at Cardiff. It was proved that tw o subpoenas and 15s conduct money bad been paid Wood- ham, who was fined £1 for non-attendance, and ordered to forfeit the conduct money, the case being adjourned. COMPENSATION AWARD. Judge Owen granted an award under the Workmen's Compensation Act to Archibald Maclean, a mechanic, who was injured on the 25th January last by falling down the fore peak of a vessel, while in the employ of Messrs Hodges and Walliker, Barry Dock. Mr John Sankev (instructed by Mr Harry Williams, solicitor, Neath) appeared for the applicant, who, it was stated, had been paid compensa- tion up to April 5tb, but it then ceased. On the previous day, however, they had paid the man, and now admitted liability. An order was made for the payment of Sl a week while defendant was physically unable to follow his employment, and costs were awarded on Scale C. A FAMILY AFFAIR. David Rees, of White Farm, Mertbyr Do van, for whom Mr J. A. Hughes, solicitor, appeared, sued his step-daughter, C. Powell, a married woman, who formerly resided on Barry Island, for Y,2 10s alleged to be due to him. Plaintiff said he had supplied poultry, and bad paid for removing their furniture to Stumpy Hall. Judge Owen: That's a fine name, Stumpy Hall. (Laughter.)—In order to prove that plaintiff had paid the bill for removing the furniture the case was adjourned.

The new Betting Laws will probably give greater powers for the extermination of the street corner punter than at present exist The Bishop of Llandaff has offered the curacy-iu- charge of the new ecclesiastical district situate between Beaufort and Ebbw Vale to the Rev H F. S. Williams, B.A., curate of St. Mary's, Barry Dock, but it is not yet known whether the rev. g' ntleman has accepted the offer. That august body, the local Medical Association, is carrying on a policy of expulsion, and at the present rate, considering how many are outside its pale, there will be ooly two or three left to bear that dignified and high-sounding title. Mias Gertrude Jenner, of Typica, Wenvoe, has been canvassed freely by Cardiff photographers for the hoiiour of a sitting, but that lady has assured thpni that her time is so much occupied with legal matters recently that she cannot at present con- sent. Amongst "Coronation" numbers issued in the provinces that of the Welsh Gazette, published at Aberystwith, is worthy of spf cial mention. It is turned out in really first-iate style, and the por- traits and illustrations, of which a number are local, are excellent. The Welsh Qaxette are to be sincerely congratulated upon the production. The Spanish blail steamer Alphonso XIII. was last week attacked by thieves while aground near Cape Cariaford, in Florida. The robbers were natives. There were no fewer than 80 boat loads of them, and to keep them off the ship it was necessary to open fire upon them. The steamer had 806 passengers aboard The Alphonso XIII., which afterwards sailed away, was a short time ago undergoing repairs in the Barry Graving Dock, where she was visited by hundreds of persons. The Severn Division of the Submarine Miners go to camp on July 26th, and it is expected that between 200 and 230 men will this year undergo the annual fortnight's training. Two squads of the Cardiff detachment, numbering about 37, have been at Plymouth during the past few weeks for a course of training in electric light work, and it is now optional for these particular men to attend camp. The first equad was under the command of Capt. Caple, and the second under that of Capt. Edwards. The prospectus of the new Year Book for 1903 to be published by the Literature Committee of the Welsh Congregationalists has just been issued. It is to be called Y Blwyddiadur Cynulleidfaol (" The Congregational Year Book "), and will be edited by the Revs Dr E. Pan Jones, of Mostyn D. Avan Griffiths, of Troedrhiwdalar and W. Parri Huws, B.D., of Dolgelley. The committee paid E220 to the publishers of the two denominational diaries hitherto published for the copyright of these Year Books.
BARRY TEMPERANCE CHOIR. NATIONAL EISTEDDFOD COMPETITION. THE ONLY WELSH CHOIR ENTERED. The members of the Barry Temperance Choir on Friday last decided unanimously to proceed to Bangor and compete for the chief choral prize. About 120 members were present when the decision was arrived at The Barry Railway 00mplny intend running a special excursion train via Pen- rhis, leaving Barry Monday morning, September 8th, returning on Tuesday night. The Mvnical Herald states that only one choir from Wales has entered in the competition, and as Barry had entered before the publication of that report it is an obvious deduction that that is the local choir. Now that that there is a splendid chance of Barry securing the coveted honour, it is hoped the beat choir possible will be sent up to try and uphold the reputation of Wales, and members are urged on this account of making every sacrifice in their power. If there are any tenors in the district they are earnestly invited to help, and thus assist to enhance the musical reputation of the district.

BARRY JEWELLERY HAUL THE LONDON ARRESTS. PRISONERS COMMITTED FOR TRIAL. At Barry Dock Police Court on Thursday the two men arrested the previous Monday in London were brought up in custody before Mr John Duncan and Mr J. W. Pyman, charged together with breaking and entering the pawn- broker's shop of Mr Coleman Follick, 44, Holton-road, Barry Dock, on the 18th June, and stealing therefrom jewellery to the amount of JE350 and L3 10s in coppers. The men were named James Reardon (42), fireman, 59, Cathren-street, Canning Town, London, and Alfred Sergeant (35), alias John Sullivan. Mr Alfred Jackson, solicitor, appeared for the prosecution. Alexander Follick, son of the prosecutor, gave evidence of leaving the premises safely locked on the night of the 17th June, and on the following morning finding the premises had been entered by a back window, the iron bars inside being bent. He identified a gold watch, a gold brooch, and a pair of gold earrings as part of the missing property. D. Slade Purchase, manager of a Workmen's Hotel, Barry Dock, deposed that Sergeant stayed at the place for about a month cr five weeks, and Reardon for a briefer period. While there they were friendly, and one made joint payments occasionally for the other. They both left the night prior to the robbery. Police-constable Alfred Clarke, of Cardiff, deposed that he saw the two prisoners walking together along the G.W.R. Approach on the 14th June about 8.30 in the evening. Reardon was carrying a small parcel under his left arm. Police-sergeant Andrew Foster, K Division of the Metropolitan Police Force, deposed to arresting both men in company with another constable in Canning Town. After placing them inside the police station witness searched Reardon's house. Inside a clock on the mantel- piece of a bedroom he found the jewellery pro- duced, which had been identified by Alexander Follick. Besides that some skeleton and safe keys, a purse, a magnifying glass, a stone used for scratching out names on jewellery, and also a very large clasp knife were discovered. When arrested and charged they denied having ever been at Cardiff. Sergeant's discharge book was v also found. He knew both men well. The police found a crowbar, a saw, and a carpenter's bit concealed in the chimney of a house at the rear of the entered premises, and these, it was shown, were the instruments with which an entrance had been effected. John. Coleman, 59, Thompson-street, Barry Dock, said that Reardon lodged with him a few days, and while there accompanied witness to a blacksmith's shop to sharpen and turn an iron bar. That bar he directly afterwards missed, but he identified it now when produced in court. Police-sergeant R. H. Thomas described the state of the premises on the morning following the burglary. Marks on the window corre- sponded with the iron bar lost by Coleman. On searching No. 1, Greenwood-street, an empty house immediately behind these pre- mises, he found in the chimney of an upstairs room a saw, a bit (produced), and the iron bar. Comparing the bit with a mark on a part of the broken panelling, they were found to corre- spond, and on the doors were marks correspond- ing with the large clasp knife, one end ef which bad a large iron spike fixed to it. On the night of the 13th June he saw both prisoners at 11.20 in company with two others standing on the corner of Thompson-street. Witness and Police-constable Poolman received prisoners into custody at Canning Town, where he charged them. They made no reply. At Paddington Station Reardon's wife entered the compartment, and in conversation with her Reardon asked how and where the police had found the" stuff." The wife replied, On the mantelpiece and in the clock." Both rejoined, "That open enough, anyhow." Reardon also said, That's good enough for me." Sergeant also said, If I knew they were coming they would never have found it there. She gave us away, that's a moral cert." Detective Stephens, of the Cardiff Police Force, said he had been at 44, Holton-road, that morning, and had compared the marks, which corresponded with those now on the woodwork, as already described by Sergeant Thomas. Prisoners were committed for trial at the Assizes. THE GHJJLGE OF RECEIVING. Charles Lindsay, who had been three times remanded by the magistrates in connection with the affair, was charged with receiving a diamond ring, value ten guineas, well knowing it to have been stolen. Mr Alfred Jackson also prosecuted in this case. Mrs Hornblow, licensee of the Greyhound Hotel, Bridge-street, Cardiff, deposed that prisoner came to her house on Saturday, June 14th, and left a gold buckle diamond ring. That same afternoon Detective Stephens saw the ring, and on Monday morning prisoner came to fetch it. Police-constable Bolton was at the house in plain clothes waiting for him. Detective-Sergeant John Stephens, Cardiff, described the ring, which was identified by Mr Graham Follick at Cardiff as one of the articles which had been missed from the branch at Barry Dock. It had a private mark upon it, and had been sent down from Cardiff for sale at the Barry shop in October last. Police-constable Bolton, stationed at Maindy, said he was at the Greyhound Hotel, when prisoner came in and was handed the ring. Witness followed him out for about 50 yards and arrested him. When crossing over Custom House-street Bridge prisoner jumped towards the parapet, and he leaned over until witness pulled him from there. Witness did not notice him drop anything into the water, but on arrival at the police station and searching prisoner the ring was missing. Prisoner, however, now declared that the ring had fallen out of his pockat during the scuffle with Police-eonstable Boltou. Police-sergeant R. H. Thomas charged prisoner, who in reply said he bought the ring for 2s from a man in Culley's Hotel, Barry Dock. Prisoner was committed for trial at the Assizes.
WEAK MILK. Rees Lewis, of Cross Farm, Dinas Powis, was summoned at the local Police-court on Thursday last for selling milk adulterated to the extent of 13 per cent. Inspector D. Morris proved purchasing some milk from a man in defendant's employ, who was carrying it to a retailer in Woodland-road, Barry Dock. Mr Alfred Jackson appeared for the defendant, and urged in mitigation that Lewis had been in the milk trade for over 20 years, and although samples of his milk had been taken scores of times no single complaint had been made as to its quality except on the present occasion. Within the past two months three samples had been taken. Defendant attributed the poor quality of the milk to the coldness of the season. The Bench considered that this was rather a bad case, and fined defendant 20s and costs.
