_4-- Two Barry Brothers Graduated. Mr. S. J. Evans and Mr E. P. Evans, sons of the late Capt. Evans, of 22, Windsor-road, Barry, have both during the present month graduated, the former obtaining his B.A. with honours in the final school of theology at St. John's College, Oxford, and the latter has secured his B.Sc. at the University College, Cardiff. These University succdSses reflect considerable credit upon the brothers, the first-named of whom is 22 years of age and the other 21 years. Mr S. J. Evans proceeded to Oxford from St. David's College, Lampeter, where he won an exhibition in theology. The honours school of Oxford has a pre-eminent standing, and Mr S. J.

BARRY'S NEW TOWN CLERK. VALUABLE EXPERIENCE IN HALIFAX. SPLENDID ATTAINMENTS. Mr T. B. Tordoff, Barry's new town clerk, is 35 years of age, and a gentleman whose appearance suggests reserve, with practical ability of no common order. At the Council meeting on Monday he created a favourable impression by the natural, unassuming confident attitude which he displayed, together with his courteous and truly gentlemanly demeanour. About 5ft- llin. in height, Mr Tordoff served his articles as clerk in Leeds, and subsequently became managing clerk to a firm of solicitors in the City of London. For the past eight years he has been assistant town clerk of Halifax, but as the deputy town clerk is not a lawyer the legal work connected with the Council has naturally devolved upon Mr Tordoff. It is an instance worth re-calling, too, that during the time he has been -at Halifax the borough boundaries have been twice extended, and in view of the future the experience gained by him in the estab- lishment of tramways in the town will prove invaluable in his new sphere. Water works and gas works have been secured by the borough during his tenure of office, and street improvements of considerable magni- tude undertaken. His special work has been conveyancing, the conduct of litiga- tion, in the county court, prosecutions under the Public Health Acts, Weights and Measures Acts, Sale of Food and Drugs Acts, all local Acts and Bye-laws, and all proceedings for the recovery of private im- provement expenses, and all proceedings taken at the instance of the Corporation before Justices of the Peace. Mr Tordoff has also acted as prosecuting solicitor in police cases and assisted the town clerk in actions in the High Court, Local Govern- ment Board enquiries, the preparation of bye-laws for various purposes, conduct of Parliamentary, municipal, and School Board elections, and occasionally attended and .taken jninutes of the proceedings of the committees of the Council. During the past six years Halifax Corporation have pro- moted four Bills in Parliament and obtained Provisional Orders for Tramways, Water Works, Gas Works, Street Improvements, Extensions of Borough and other purposes. The area of the Borough of Halifax is [13,634 acres; population, 104,000; rate- able value, ,6477,446. The Corporation conduct the following properties :—Water Works, Gas Works, Electricity Works, Tramways, Markets, Public Libraries, Tech- nical School, Public Baths, Fever Hospital, Parks, Cemetery, and Bonding Warehouse. Quite recently Mr Tordoff was in the running for the town clerkship of Nelson. We feel certain that, with his splendid qualifications, Mr Tordoff will be greatly welcomed as the chief official of the town, in which it is the wish and hope that he may live long and happily.
CORONATION FESTIVITIES. TOWN TO REJOICE ON AUGUST 9. FURTHER GRANT OF MONEY. At Monday's meeting of the Barry District Council it was reported that up to that time ^262 had been spent on the Coronation festivities in the town. The Council had voted £350 for the purpose, and an estimate had been prepared showing that if the original programme was again carried out it would cost another £ i 10. The Chairman said it was probably the wish of the inhabitants that as far as possible what was intended the other day should again be carried out. Councillor Manaton moved that they allow the Coronation Committee another £50 to complete such a programme. The Chairman seconded it. Councillor Jose moved an amendment that the Coronation Committee be allowed a sum not exceeding £100. They had a lot to regret over the last affair, and unless they wanted to do the thing well he would prefer that the whole thing be dropped. Alderman Meggitt was opposed to the children's treat being again introduced, seeing that the day school teachers would be away on holidays, and there would be no one to take care of them. He moved this. Councillor Smith-Jones seconded, and de- clared that the children would be as dis- appointed this time as they were on the first occasion. There was already very great dis- satisfaction at the way in which the children had been treated. Councillor Manaton said he would sacrifice everything for the sake of the children be- cause they were still looking forward to their treat. Sunday school teachers could take care of the children in the same way as they did at the time 'of the diamond jubilee of Queen Victoria. The amendment moved by Alderman Meggitt was only supported by the mover and seconder, and eventually Councillor Milward seconded Councillor Jose's resolu- tion which was carried. The Coronation Committee, on which Councillor Milward was selected to replace Alderman Meggitt, were asked to take charge of the arrangements again.
ITYNE WORKS EMPLOYEES OUTING- PLEASANT DAY AT CHEPSTOW AND TINTERN The annual outing of the employees of the Tyne Engineering Works, Barry Dock, owned by that enterprising gentleman, Mr C. H. Bailey, is about the most enjoyable that is undertaken year after year from fhe place. All the men, who throughout the working days are found busily engaged vieing with each other in the performance of their respective duties, on this One day revel in ease and enjoyment. Chepstow and Tintern, through old association, were once again selected as the venue, and fcbither the party journeye d on Saturday morn- ing last. There wi-rn altogether about 300 trippers, niany of th,, men being joined by their wives. The weather was really tropical, and thi W Yt Valley looked in its best dress as a cool breeze sped through the winding valley running from Chepstow down to Tinteru. Starting with 8 a.m. train from Barry Dock, Chepstow was reached ai/out 10.30, and after a couple of hours spent in the historic town, with its ruined fortress and castle and qu aint buildings, dinner was partaken of at the White Hart Temperance Hotel. Mr J. H. Brough, the popular secretary of the local works, occupied the chair, and, studying the enjoyment of the assembled workmen, gave out the mandate that the speeches were to be brief, in older that the party might enjoy themselves in the fresh, open air. A splendid dinner had been prepared, and it is needless to say that digestion waited on appetite, the choice pro- visions vanishing with a rapidity characteristic of sound, healthy constitutions. Mr Tom Williams (foreman smith) and Mr Lawson (foreman tinsmith), who were chief organisers of the trip, were actively engaged in superin- tending the arrangements, which worked smoothly and satisfactorily throughout. The toast list was, like the speeches, brief. Mr Tom Wiiliams proposed the toast of "Mr C. H. Bailey," the respected head of the firm, which was drunk with great enthusiasm. Mr Williams referred to the gt nefosity of Mr Bailey towards his employees in defraying most of the cost of the outing. Th staff was rapidly increasing year by year, and he feared that next year the workmen would have to be divided into two companies, for they ex- perienced great difficulty in getting hotel pro- prietors to cater for so large a gathering at the same time, but he hoped this would not mar the enjoyment of future outings. (Cheers.)— The Chairman, in responding on behalf of Mr Bailey, aid that that gentleman would have been very pleased to be with them that day, but he was on the Continent seeing to the transaction of important business. In referring to Mr Bailey's business enterprise, the Chair- man declared him to be one of the best ship- repairers in the whole country. (Cheers.) Vessels which were formerly sent to Liverpool, London, and the North of England were sent to the Bristol Channel, and Mr Bailey received a very large share of that work. (Cheers.) He was, without a dpubt, the best ship repairer in the district. (Cheers.) Mr Bailey believed in work while he was at work, and enjoying him- self while at play. (Cheers.) If it were not for the workmen, he would not be in the posi- tion he occupied that day, and no one more fully appreciated that fact than Mr Bailey himself. (Cheers.)—Mr Clissett then moved a vote of thanks to the Chairman for occupy- ing that position so well.—Mr H. Osborne seconded, and the vote was carried amid accla- mation. After departing from the banquetting chamber the party took train for Tintern, the run along the course of the Wye being one of the pleasant incidents of the trip. An inspection of the famous Abbey was made, and enjoyment was found in several directions in that delightful locality. Returning to Chepstow afterwards, tea was partaken of at the White Hart Hotel, and one of the most pleasant and enjoyable of a long series of enjoyable outings concluded with the return journey, Barry being reached about 11 p.m.

BARRY DISTRICT COUNCIL. ¡ CORONATION PROPOSALS. MORE MONEY VOTED. A POPULAR MISCONCEP nON. The Barry District Council met on Monday afternoon, under the presidency of Councillor J. A. Hughes, when the other members present were Councillors J. H. Jose, J. A. Manjt(,ii, E. B. Smith-J ones, W. Pater-on, J. C. Meggitt, J. Milward, Evan Willin,, and James Jones, and Drs E. Treharne, inid P. J. O'Dounell. FRESH APPOINTMENT. The Health Committer recommended the appointment of a man to take charge of the trees in the district, at a salary of 30s a week. The recommendation was streuously resisted by Councillor Smith-Jon* s and Councillor Milward, but was carried. SEWERMEN AND II OLID AYS. Councillor Miiward moved that the sewer men, by reason of the character of their work, be given a week's holiday. There was no seconder to the motion, however, which fell through. PREPARING FOR THE CLOUD. Councillor Manatou, as chairman of the Gas and Water Committee, said that Lbe committee bad recommended the purchase of 6,000 tons of Broughton Plas coal. In view of the trouble foreshadowed in connection with the coal trade, it was desirable that this contract should be in- creased to 10,000. Councillor Jose said there was no doubt that the coal trade would be in an unsettled state at the end of the year, and he, therefore, moved the addition of 4,000 tons, because he didn't believe they would be able to get the coal at a cheaper rate. Councillor Paterson seconded the motion, which was carried. SOLICITOR. It was recommended by the Health Com- mittee that Mr Alfred Jackson be engaged to do some legal work specified. Councillor Smith-Jones moved the elimina- tion ot this report, but the motion was lost. Councillor Manaton moved that Mr Jones- Lloyd be employed. Councillor James Jones seconded. This was supported by four members, the remainder being in opposition. THE RETORT HOUSES. The Gas and Water Committee were given full powers iu regard to proceeding with the erection of the new system of inciiued retorts. BOARD OF TRADE AND POST OFFICES. It was decided that the recommendation of the Health Committee that no further con- cessions be made in these matters be referred back to the committee for reconsideration. SPORTS FIELD AND THE NEW HOSPITAL. Mr Knapman, asked to report, stated that he considered that the sports field being laid out would interfere with the proposed site of the hospital. A COMPLAINT. Councillor Jose said he wished te investigate a complaint in connection with the Accident Hospital about an accident case taken there early on Friday morning, and in which it was stated that no doctor had attended the man at the hospital uutil middle-day. Dr O'Donnell did not think it fair that Mr Jose should bring it up in that way and make an ex-parte statement. The man was attended by a'medical man just before being brought to the hospital. Councillor Manaton TCiov"ct--thab GmttteiHor Jose be asked to attend the next meeting of the Hospital Committee, and this was seconded by Councillor Milward and carried. Dr O'Dounell That has been arranged. THE ATTRACTIONS OF THE TOWN. Councillor Jose opposed the purchase of new seats contemplated by the Health Committee, and said there were a number of old seats in possession of the Council, which should be first used. Alderman Meggitt pointed out that in all seaside places to which they were able to go by means of the boats they were doing all they could to attract visitors. At Barry they had a beautiful beach and picturesque scenery, and he wished Councillor Jose could st-e the number of persons who were on the Island that day who were unable to get seats to sit down upon. Councillor Paterson also expressed surprise at any objection to the proposal. The motion of Councillor Jose to eliminate the recommendation was lost, only the three South Ward members voting in its favour. SUNDAY OPENING. Councillor Jose called the attention to the <8 decision of the Health Committee in recom- mending that the cloak-rooms and lavatories on Barry Island be opened from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays. Personally, he did not think such Sunday labour as the caretaker would be called upon to perform was either essential or neces- sary. He, therefore, moved that it be eliminated. Councillor Paterson said the conveniences they provided were absolutely necessary on Sundays as well as other days. The Chairman said he was net an advocate of Sunday labour, but the view the committee took was that it was in this instance absolutely necessary. Alderman Meggitt seconded Councillor Jose's amendment, but only these two voted in its favour, the remainder being against. PIGSTYES. Councillor Smith-Jones contested the re- commendation of the Allotments Committee that -10 pigstye be permitted on the allotment grounds after the and of the present year, and that those there at present be removed by that time. This, he contended, was a great hard- ship on those who desired to keep a pig. The Surveyor, in reply to a question, said there were only two pigstyes on the gardens. The Chairman So the hardship will not be very great. Councillor Smith-Jones said he knew for a fact there were more. It would be well to make enquiries on that point, but as there were so few, why did the Council interfere ? He moved the elimination of the recommendation. Councillor Milward seconded the motion, and hoped the Council would not rob working-men of their only chance to keep a pig, since they I were not permitted to have one near their dwell- ings. Councillor Jose aid he did not see why some should have this privilege to the detriment of others. For the amendment five voted, and a similar number against, the Chairman giving his cast- ing-vote in favour of the committee's recom- mendation. Councillor Jose then moved that the matter be referred back to the committee to ascertain the views of the other allotment holders. The Chairman seconded this seeing that the Council were so closely divided on the matter, and this was agreed upon. MUD IN THE BAY. Councillor Manaton said in reference to the letter from Mr Richard Evans stating that the dredger did not deposit mud inside the Bay, as alleged, that there were still a lot of complaints about it. JOBBING GARDENERS. Councillor Jose said, in reference to the ques- tion of lamplighters doing other work during spare time, that he noticed that the Health Com- mittee adhered to its former recommendation. There had been another resolution passed some time ago in reference to this matter, but he had been unable to nnd it. ¡ Mr Brown (acting clerk): It is three years ago. Where it is I don't remember. Councillor Jose If this is to be carried out, it simply means that a man could not earn 6d or a shilling during his spare moments even if he had the opportunity to do so, in order to support himself and his family. He bad objected to officials keeping business houses, which was altogether a different matter, but t'ertainly nothing o drastic as the present re commendation was contemplated. He hope'] the committee would take a different view of the matter, and moved that it be referred back in order that the resolution passed some ye-trs ago he inserted. Co.:Mci!ior Milward seconded. Council or Manaton said be considered the recommendation of the committee nothing but right. If they did not pay a man a living wage, it was another matter. Dr O'Donnell said the principle involved in the resolution was that this man was earning a- living wage from the Council, and having this assured lie went about doing odd jobs in cutting grass and doing people's gardens about the place at he didn't know what price, an 1 thereby put other men doing this class of work fairly out from earning a livelihood. There were plenty of men about soliciting such jobs, and this man did the work to the disadvantage of such. Besides this, they had had bills at the Hospital Committee twice in succession from this pi an for 5s each time for cutting grass when the Council employed him at a weekly wage. Then in his letter the man said he had ten in family, but he (Dr O'Donnell) had made it his business to enquire into this, and found that he had only four ,-it home, while there was a man in the Gas and Water Department with a family of eight or nine, and only earned 22s a week. Councillor Jose They can't live on it. The Chairman said he hoped Councillor Jose's amendment would be carried to refer the luatter back, seeing that there was so much feeling engendered by it, so that the actual resolution might be discovered. The amendment was carried, only Councillor Manaton and Dr O'Donnell voting against it. SEATS ON THE ISLAND. Councillor Manaton moved the elimination of a recommend a* ion about seats being placed on Barry Island and elsewhere. Councillor Jose seconded, and condemned the policy of the Council in tinkering with such a question by affording only £ 10. They had spent many such sums, and what he desired was to see the thing done once and for all out of the loan account. The resolution was, however, lost. 10 QUESTION OF NOMENCLATURE. The Chairman moved that in place of Colcot Ward the new ward proposed in the western end of the town be called the High-street Ward. Alderman Meggitt seconded. Councillor Paterson, Councillor Manaton, Dr O'Donnell, and Councillor Jose appealed against such a name being placed upon it, and the West Ward members were asked to report upon some suitable name. THE PROPOSED TOWN HOSPITAL. On the motion of Councillor Manaton, it was decided that Mr Knapman be paid for the plans for the new hospital, and that an agreement be come to with that gentleman whereby for the present the whole matter be dropped. TIME OF MEETING. Councillor Jose moved that the Council meet at 2.30 in the afternoon, instead of three o'clock, in order to get home a little earlier to tea. Alderman Meggitt seconded. Councillor Smith-Jones opposed it, and de- clared that the alteration from 7.30 in the even- ting bad-not been favourable to the attendance. j If it was fixed at 2.30, be would not be able to attend. The Chairman said he was anxious to fix a time when everyone could attend. The meeting that afternoon, called for 2.30, was absolute proof of the benefit of such a change. Councillor Evan Williams said be certainly would not be able to attend at 2.30 The voting was equal, the Chairman giving his casting-vote for three o'clock, although personally he would have preferred 2.30.
CARNEGIE LIBRARY. DISCUSSION BY THE DISTRICT- COUNCIL. PLANS FOR THE PROPOSED MUNICIPAL BUILDINGS. At a meeting of the Barry District Council on Monday Councillor J. A. Hughes, who presided, referred to the recommendations in reference to selecting the portion of the two acres of land owned by the Council for the Carnegie Free Library building. The com- mittee which had met considered that it would be wiser to prepare a scheme to in- clude the whole of the municipal buildings to cover the whole of the land available. They consider that this would be better, rather than construct the library and then make some alteration afterwards, that plans for the whole block of buildings should be prepared. It is not intended for a moment that any portion should be proceeded with at the present time, except the library. It was simply proposed that a scheme should be prepared. What would this cost? It was intended to get competitive plans and offer ,6300 in prizes, out of which the Library Committee would pay £ I 00, so that instead of doing things piecemeal they would have the design for the whole of the buildings before them at the same time. An example of the foolishness of the piecemeal policy might be found in the erection and alteration of the Intermediate School. The committee had also decided to see Mr Robert Forrest in reference to land adjoining which had now come into the hands of the Wenvoe Castle Estate, but Mr Forrest had since gone abroad and would not be returning for about three weeks. The acquisition of this land was not, however, essential to this scheme. He moved the adoption of the report. Councillor Milward seconded. In reply to Councillor Smith-Jones, the Chairman said the competition of designs was to be open, and it was agreed to add this to the report. Councillor Smith-Jones also suggested, in addition to the prizes, that the work of superintending the erection should also be given to the successful competitor. The Chairman said, in the face of the fact that they would not be undertaking the municipal buildings for several years, perhaps that this was undesirable. It was decided, on the motion of Councillor Jose, that a professional man be selected as arbitrator, and that competing plans should be signed by a nom-de-plume.

The B; rry Dock Y.M.C.A. members have started a s ries of open-air el vices ii, the country villages, and at Ri-oose on Wednesday evening attracted a large crowd. Altogether 3,774 deaths were recorded from enteric in the first year of the South African war, 2,561 in the second year, and 1,656 from October last to May 30th. Mr John Lowdon will be presented with a testimonial at the Holton Board Schools on Wed- nesday evening next in recognition of his valuaable work as chairman of the School Board.

All old aV,d intending members are re- quested to attsnd this meeting. The secretary pro tem is Mr T. E. Davies. There have been more dreams, beliefs, and speculations about the successor (;f the Rev E. Merris to the living of Cadoxton-Barry published (writes a prominent Cadoxton Churchman) than have been probably conjured in the brains of those responsible for the appointment. The old adage must be altered and brought up- to-date. It must now read-" Mules and motors are stubborn things." A Barry car stopped dead in Newport streets, and all the power of mankind could not make it budge until it had remained for some time the demure laughed-at joke of the town. Cardiff Teachers had an outing to Dinas Powis last Saturday, when Mr J. B Mockford acted as their" guide. philosopher, and friend." A visit to Courtyralla, tea at the Truant School, dancing at The Mount, and an abundance of roses from Bryneitheu are enough to make any day fragrant with pleasant recollections. The Rev Owen Jones, pastor of Salem Welsh Baptist Chapel, Barry Dock, has received a hearty and unanimous invitation to become pastor of the church of that denomination at Troedyrhiw, Merthyr. Mr Owen, who was ordained at Salem about two years ago, has not yet decided the nature of the reply to be sent. A return issued by the Board -of Trade shows that during 1901 the terms of employment at Cardiff in engineering and shiprepairing works were :—Patternmakers, 38s per week for 53 hours ironfounders, 36s per week turners, fitters, and smiths, 41s per week of 54 hours boilermakers' platers (heavy), 42 in the shops, 39s in the yards rivetters, 39s in shops, 36s in yards, per week of 53 hours in summer and 47 hours in winter ship- wrights, 40s per week of 47 hours.

The Barry Company ran a special from Cardiff via Cadoxton, depositing the visi ors near the resi- dence, and quite an enjoyable afternoon was spent by several hundred guests, which included Mr and Mrs John Lowdon, Mr and Mrs W.Graham, Mr and Mrs A. S. Jackscu, Mr and Mrs Humphrey Wallis, Mr and Mrs Johnson, Mr and Mrs C. L. Ryder, Mr and Mrs Darling (Lloyd's), and others. One of the rumours on Cardiff Exchange during Tuesday was that there is another change im- pending in the Barry directorate, and that one of directors will shortly sever his connection with the company. The reason for the rumour is that a large parcel of Barry Deferred Stocks have been placed on the market. In view of the £19,000 increase in receipts, and the much talked-about 8 per cent. dividend, the erratic way in which Barry Stock changed bands on Tuesday shows that some- body is in for a big disappointment Let us hope it won't be Barry town.
