Success of a Barry Student. ANOTHER HONOUR FOR MISS ETHEL JONES. Miss Ethel Jones, of the Barry County School, one of the first seven scholars in Wales, has gained another great success. Her name appears in the list of successful candidates in the Cambridge Higher Local Examinations. She passed in all the subjects she took up, and gained a First Class in Group B (French and Latin), and a Second Class in Group A (English Language and Literature, History of Literature, Anglo Saxon, and Middle English). She also passed in the compulsory paper in arithmetic. Six pupils from the school also passed the London Matriculation examination this year, and this later success of Miss Jones refl<cts the highest possible credit upon the headmaster and staff.
An Officer s Offence at Barry. At a special meeting of the Local Marine Board at Cardiff on Tuesday, before Messrs P. Turnbull, M. Angel, and T. W. Lewis (stipen- diary magistrate), Thomas E. Davies, late second mate of the s.s. Queen, oi Glasgow, was charged with being drunk and absenting him- self from duty on the 14th inst., while the ship \.was at Barry. The accused admitted the oflVnc's aiiii the Board, taking into considera- tion his previous good conduct, suspended his ioat8 for one month only.
NOTES AND COMMENTS. Cardiff Exchange has been the scene of many a panic over Barry Stock, and a week ago another stir was created over a large parcel which it was said had been placed on the market through some" disagreement among the directors ft: ;¡ n "approaching resignation of a number of the Hoard," and other reasons ot a more or less disquieting character. It will he well within recollection how Barry was ruined "—at least on Car- diff Exchange-by the accident at the low water entrance, and events of much less im- portance have served the countless enemies of Barry in order to create a panic, and thus run down the price of Stock. A couple of days have sufficed to put matters right, and now all the world and Cardiff Exchange is awaiting anxiously for the dividend an- nouncement. Already 8 per cent. has been predicted, but to say 7 per cent. would pro- bably have been nearer the mark. Report states that the new low-water pier at Birnbeck, Weston-super-Mare, is getting into deep water. After several years' waiting foi better pier accommodation at that Bristol Channel resort, this is pleasing news; but seeing that the time for completion is lost in a mist of uncertainty, it is satisfactory to learn that a new company has been formed, and the much-talked-about Regent-street Pier will be commenced forthwith, and be com- pleted before next season. This new scheme will involve an outlay of ^"100,000. The structure will be on screw piles, and electric cars will run the whole length of the Pier- about 2,000 yards. The rapid development of Minehead and the increasing influx of visitors to that place afford striking proof of the necessity for more pier accommodation on the other side of the Channel, and unless Weston is more alive to its interests by providing a low-water pier it will lose a great deal. With piers as a sub- ject, the question occurs to many why the municipalities on the other side do not con- struct these, and thereby assist the town by declaring them free for visitors. In these days of extortion, such a place would be very attractive to thousands of visitors, for it is well known that the price of a boat trip to Weston from Penarth is increased by 4d owing to the necessity for using these piers. Barry District Council are being asked to evince some interest in the attractive features of the town with a view to securing more visitors. Lately Barry Island has been blessed beyond its deserts, but the provision of a few seats, bathing-houses, and the cloak- rooms and lavatories will suffice until the noble lord who will derive the greatest benefit from its development deems fit to make further concessions and the Barry Company release the roadway they now hold. within their grasp, in order that the public may claim free access to that cherished spot. Looking ahead, however, what about the projected promenade to Cold Knap from near the Ship Hotel ? At present land on the immediate sea front is of little value, and the outlay of a couple of thousands would provide a charming sheltered promenade, and would be another inducement to strangers to spend their holidays at Barry by the sea. Mr D. A. Thomas, the senior member for Merthyr, has succeeded in eliciting facts from the President of the Local Govern- ment Board having a peculiar interest for Barry, which one day hopes to become incorporated. Mr Long states that the number of municipal boroughs other than county boroughs in England and Wales, according to the last census, was as follows Under 2,000 inhabitants, 12 between 2,000 and 5,000, 57; between 5,000 and 10,000, 44; between 10,000 and 30,000, 90; over 30,000 inhabitants, 48. Recently Barry has been included in the 100 largest towns in England and Wales," and that, surely, is another step towards incorporation, The admirably-organised effort to remove the debt remaining on the Nursing Associa- tion as a means for celebrating the Corona- tion of King Edward VII. has, considering the circumstances under which the town has struggled for some time past, been very successful. A temporary check was sus- tained on account of the festivities being sus- pended, and on this account, doubtless, a large sum of money has not been received. The renewal of these festivities in a few weeks' time re-kindles public interest in the movement, and a grand united effort is all that is now required to clear the institution of the deficit It is very essential, in the interests of the sick poor, that the splendid work done by the Association should not be curtailed in the slightest degree on account of its financial resources, and it is the universal wish of the townspeople that the desired amount will be realised. Mr Lloyd George has made a manful effort to save the more vigorous School Boards from utter extinction by proposing that the County Councils should be empowered to delegate their powers to them in their own areas. In this he failed, but he did contrive to extract from Mr Balfour a substantial concession. The School Board has gone for ever. But Mr Balfour is graciously pleased to allow that a locality may properly have some little interest in the education of its own children. Parish Councils will be per- mitted to appoint a minority of the members of the local boards of management, which are to be nominated by the new county autho- rity. Mr Balfour went on to qualify his generosity by explaining that he did not contemplate that there should be a majority of locally-elected representatives on the boards of management." Why? one asks in amazement. Let us put aside for the moment the case of Voluntary Schools, and con- sider only localities which previously had Board Schools and rated themselves. Why must they suddenly be deprived of all direct control over education ? And why, when their legitimate interest is admitted, are they at once told that they may send only a minority to sit on the board of management ? This is the very spirit of reaction. It might be applied with equal logic to any local body whatever. County Councils might be re- quired to nominate the majority on Parish Councils. The Government in turn might name the majority of members of a County Council and finally, as happens in Crown Colonies the King might nominate the majority In Parliament, graciously allowing the people to choose an impotent Opposi- tion. This Education Bill is not merely the fine flower of clericalism it is an assault on the democratic principle. The intention is to kill the popular interest- in education which has flourished in those fortunate districts which have established School Boards.
SNAP SHOTS. B rryDock was opened thii U en years ago last Friday. The Pontypridd County School Cadet Corps will again camp on Barry Island this summer. Then; will be no alteraticii in the Barry or Taff Vule Railway trains for the ensuing month. Glamorgan Assizes open next week at Cardiff the calender of both civil and crimiual cases being very heavy. Miss Rice, of Rip-)tl, has b"f'n appointed lady superintendent of the Birry District Nursing Association. Both the Lords Bishop of Llan-laff and Bangor wf-re in Barry last week, and were conducted around the docks by Captain Davies. T. Gr, atrox aud D.

Mr Edmund Lewis, of the Star Inn, Dinas Powis, was granted an occasional license by the magistrates on Thursday in connection with the Dinas Powis Flower Show. Major-General Lee, took several prizes in the fruit section of the Cardiff Flower Show, while Mr J. Mote, Cadoxton, in the vegetable classes, also secured a large proportion of prizes, and also a second prize in the honey classes. Having completed the task of translating Stoplietis's Welshmen into the Welsh language, Mr Bodfan Anwyl is now engaged in writing a Welsh novel, entitled "Myfanwy Wynne," in which the present day religious life among the Congregatioualists in South Wales is described. It is but little known that the new cloak-rooms and lavatories on Barry Island afford excellent accom modation for the storage of cycles and per- ambulators, and afford facilities for a refreshing wash and brush-up, at a very small fee, besides other conveniences usually found in cloak-rooms. The Mackintosh and Mrs Mackintosh, of Cot- terell, St Nicholas, have left town for Moy Ilall, Inverness-shire, for the season. The Mackintosh will have a party about the middle of August for the annual grouse drives over the celebrated Moy moors. Moy Hall occupies a beautiful situation on the shore of Loch Moy, in which are two very pretty islands, and on one of them is the ruins of the ancient castle of the Mackintoshes. The Cardiff and District Dairymen's Association held their first annual picnic to Barry Island ou Wednesday, when about 150 members and friends sat down to an excellent dinner and tea at the Murine Hotel. Mr R. Templeton presided, sup- ported by Mr F. Green, chairman of the society. After dinner Mr J. Milne, Cheddar Valley Dairy Company, proposed The Cardiff and District Dairymen's Association," Messrs F. Green and H. R. Cypher suitably responding. The Submarine Miners of Cardiff will go into camp at Barry on Saturday, and a strong muster of men is expected. Well paid as their branch of the service is for loss of time, the attendances on parade have been remarkably good, some of tlltl men having exceeded 150 drills since last camp. The camping ground has undergone considerable improvement since last year. Modern sanitary conveniences have been constructed, and the liues are enclosed. Miss Maggie Lindsay Williams, of Barry, who took first prize at the Cardiff Flower Show this w eek for the best painting in oil or water colours of flowers, fruit, or plants, age limited to 16, is a rising artist whose beautiful work has been pre- viously noticed in these columns in connection with ths WiJsor-road Congregational Church baziar a short time ago. Mias Williams, who is the daughter of Mr S. A. Williams, shipowner, Windsor-road, has thus early in life shown a con- siderable degree of cleverness with the brush. The subject of her painting for the Cardiff show was Lilies," and the picture formed quite a feature of admiration among adult connoisseurs. Miss Williams is to be highly congratulated on the result of her first competition, which is an en- couragement to her to continue in the world of art.

PRESENTATION TO AIR J. LOWDON, J.P. LARGE AND INFLUENTIAL GATHERING. A Zealous & Enthusiastic Educationist INTERESTING PROCEEDINGS. The testimonial to Mr John Lowdon, J.P., who for 12 years was at the head of affairs connected with education in the town-during the most eventful days of the School Board, and in the capacity of chairman of the County School Governors, took place on Wednesday evening. There was a gathering which was very large in its proportion and thoroughly representative in its character The meeting was held in the Holton-road Girls' School, which had been prettily decorated by Miss Fleming and her staff for the occasion. The chair was occupied by Mr J. Arthur Hughes, chairman of the District Council, and among those present, in addi- tion to Mr and Miss Lowdon, were the Rev Aaron Davies, D.D., Capt. F. and Mrs Murrell, Alderman J. C. Meggitt, Mr W. Graham, Dr W. Lloyd Edwards (chairman of the Barry School Board), Professor Anwyl, M.A. (Aberystwith College), Mr and Mrs H. J. Vincent, Mr Edgar Jones, M.A. (headmaster of the County Schools) and Mrs Jones, Miss J. S. Fleming, Miss E. V. Llewellyn, Miss Fraser, Dr P. J. O'Donnell, Mr and Mrs John Davies (St. Nicholas-road, Barry), Mr and Mrs Sam Griffiths, Mr and Mrs W. J. Dailey, Mr J. O. Davies, Mr George Wareham, Mr E. W. Waite, Mr W. J. Flowers (president of the Free Church Council) and Mrs Flowers, Mr Whitehouse (Barry), Mr and Mrs J. E. Rees, Mr T. Ewebank, &c., &c., while messages expressing regret at inability to be present were received from Mr D. W. Roberts (Barry), and Mr C. B. Brown (acting-clerk to the Barry District Council). The Chairman, in opening the proceedings, said Barry had been wanting in the British characteristic of being able to govern itself in the exercise of that freedom which was a credit to the Empire. They had had difficulties to contend with. They had no traditions they had come there from all parts of the country, and there were no ties of friendship to assist very greatly the life of the town. In spite of that, when they looked back upon the past ten or fifteen years they could refer to it without shame. There was no part of public life, in his opinion, which is more creditable than the work in connection with education in the town. (Hear, hear). And he was, he believed, ex- pressing the opinion of the people residing here, that the high position which Barry holds iu elementary education was owmg chiefly to the efforts of Mr Lowdou, whom they had met that evening to honour. (Cheers) Of the particular qualities which Mr Lowdon has brought into public life for the benefit of the town, three things stand out. First of all, he has been, in a way which cannot be said of public men in this town, thoroughly dis- interested. (Hear, hear.) He was happy to say that there had been no corruption in the way of pecuniary benefits in the town. They had been wonderfully free from that, but the desire for power had been the chief inducement to come into public life; but as far as Mr Lowdon was concerned, he has been free from that, and in regard to the position he held on the School Board, it did not add to his social position—it simply gave him an opportunity of doing good in the town. (Hear, hear.) An- other quality which he had brought into public life was that of being a good business man. Mr Lowdon had made a wonderful success of that undertaking of which he had been manager, and was now managing director, and it had been a fortunate thing for the School Board, which had been spending a lot of money, that it had a man at the head who was a thoroughly good business man. Mr Lowdon had travelled in different parts of the world, and was a man of affairs, who had had great experience in different countries and in big concerns. Such a man was always most useful in public life. Another quality which he bad brought into the public life of the town was one greatly required in all Welsh towns. As Celts, they were in- clined to be hot-headed, and full of enthusiasm, and perhaps go too fast. They got hold of ideas which were very good ideas, and be- came enthusiastic over them, and Mr Lowdon bad brought his cold, calm, calculating, hard- headed sense of a North-countryman and attempered this-excessive element, and thereby had done great service to the town. (Cheers.) Mr Lowdon would doubtless feel that evening that he had earned and was receiving the good- will and thanks of the people of the town, but his best reward would lie in the, fact that be must know that the town of Barry is to-day, and still more would be in the future, a better and wiser town because he had lived, here. (Cheers.) Mr T. Ewbank, the hon. secretary to the testimonial fund, then announced the manner iu which the testimonial bad been first mooted by the teachers, and subsequently joined by all classes in the town, there being over 300 sub- scribes to the fundfi. Mr W. C. Howe then rendered a pleasing solo. Captain F. Murrell, the next speaker, de- clared that be bad known Mr Lowdon for 35 years past. After first knowing each other, they lost sight of each other for a time, and 15 or 20 years ago they again met in Cardiff. About 10 years afterwards, they both found themselves in Barry. During the whole period of their acquaintance Mr Lowdon had been respected and beloved by all with whom be came in contact. With the speaker, Mr Low- don had worked hard to secure the establish- ment of the Intermediate School in the town, and in that matter, as also his connection with School Board matters, his labours had been crowned with success. In wishing Mr Lowdon continued health and success, the speaker ex- pressed the hope that he would again be found working for the benefit of the town and the people in it. (Cheers.) The Rev Aaron Davies, D.D., as a Welsh educationist of over 30 years' standing, spoke of his knowledge of Mr Lowdon since he appeared with others from Barry before the County Council Committee, of which he (the speaker) was c! airman, pleading for a grant to build a school here. The work done by Mr Lowdon at that time would tell for many future genera- tions, and his self-sacrifice in the interests of the public was receiving slight recognition by that testimonial. Mr Lowdon, however, valued the good fueling of the people as being greater than i li, Hud inasmuch as they were to have a Ideational authority, he hoped to see Mr Lowdon come once again to the rescue. (Cheers.) Mr J. E. Rees, headmaster of Hannah-street Schools, declared he bad known Mr Lowdon long enough to appreciate him. Mr Lowdon always possessed a true proportion of men and things, and while admiring his unfailing courtesy and appreciating his arduous labours in the in- terests of education, he testified to the great knowledge which Mr Lowdon had of all educa- tional matters. (Cheers.) Miss Rachel Evans then sang The Lost Chord:" and was deservedly applauded. Mr J. O. Davies (Barry), who next spoke, said as one taking part in a side-show of educational work, he bad had sufficient ex- perience of Mr Lowdon to know his moral force and dignity of purpose. Mr Isaac Davies (Barry), as a working man, declared it to be the opinion of every man on the dockside that Mr Lowdon had done a great and noble work in the interests of their children when he occupied the position of chairman of the School Board. (Cheers.) They also hoped that if any new committee were formed he would be re-enlisted in the service. (Cheers.) Mr Digby kswith, as president of the local branch of the N.U.T., also testified to the great confidence which had existed between the teachers and the Board, without which progress in education WP impossible. Although largely concerned with professional interests, the N.U.T. held up Barry as a specimen of what a Board should be, and this was largely due to the guidance given it by Mr Lowdon. (Cheers.) Mr F. Biss then sang an interesting solo. Major-General Lee was then called upon to make the presentation amid cheers. In doing so the speaker said it gave him great pleasuie to be present and have the honour of making the presentation of the handsome album address, which, he felt sure, would be a heir- loom in Mr Lowdon's family for many genera- tions. If one thing gave satisfaction, beyond the knowledge of bis own conscience telling him that be bad done bis best, it was the fact that his work had been appreciated by his fellow- citizens. Personally, he didn't want to labour Mr Lowdou's good qualities, for to a man of bis humble, retiring nature it must almost be a pain to him. He wished to endorse every word in the admirable address, which he read as fol- lows DEAR SIR,-Upon your enforced retirement, through pressure of business, from active work on the Barry School Board, it was thought by many residents of the district that the occasion ought not to be allowed to pass without some recognition being tendered to you of the educational work done by you during your membership of that Board. Whrn you were elected a member of the Cadoxton and Merthyr Duvan School Board in Novemb r, 1889, tht re were four departments, and 948 child- ren upon the books of those departments. At your retirement, November, 1901, from the Barry School Buard, there were 16 departments, and 6,000 children upon the books. These somewhat bare facts merely show the educational growth of the Barry district, but those who have subscribed to this address feel that a very large measure of the credit on account of the educational advancement here is due to you. No better memorial to your unflagging zeal in matters educational is to be seen than in the buildings and equipments of the schools of the district. As Chairman of the Board—a position you occu- pied with so much credit during the whole of your menibersliip-your aims were efficiency and pro- gressiveness, and the Education Department has testified to the accomplishment thereof on more than more occasion. As a further testimony to the excellent work done by you, it may be mentioned that the sub- scribers to this testimonial include, not only those actively engaged in education, but representatives of every profession tnd branch of employment in the district, who, one and all, most heartily wish that your life may yet be prolonged to see the finish of that work, in the inception of which you took such an active part. Signed, on behalf of the Subscribers, D W Roberts, Digby Smith, James Byrne, John E Rues, J S Fleming, R T Evans, J A Jones, A M Joues, M M Frazer, C E Strachen, A M Bloomfield, Eliza Morgan, Gertrude Masterman, Ruth Laws, Beatrice A James, H Whitehouse, S J Lowther, M E Evans, Gertrude Jenkins, T S Thomas, Isaac Davies, J L Davies, John Webb, Felix Kingston, J 0 Davies, Mabel Brown, Aaron Davies, Evan Jones, Edith Jones, Thomas Williams, Leonora G Court, Sarah Williams, Thomas Ewebank, Hon. Sec; Miss Fleming then, in a neat speech, handed to Miss Lowdon a beautifully-designed silver epergne, to be given Mrs Lowdon, who was unable to be present through indisposition. In the course of her rema.ks, Miss Fleming ex- pressed sincere regret for the absence of Mrs Lowdon, who she hoped would long be spared to cherieh that beautiful gift and the good wishes of the many donors. It had been a gre t loss to them to lose Mr Lowdon, and although Mrs Lowdon was in some measure responsible for that, still they would bear her no malice on that account. (Laughter). She hoped both Mr and Mrs Lowdon would long be spared to each other. (Cheers). Mrs Williams here sang a solo. Mr John Lowdon, who on rising to return thanks, was loudly cheered, said he felt he had no language at his command which would in any sense express the feeling of deep gratitude he had to all of them for the presentations. He r felt that he had done nothing to deserve it. (Rev Aaron Davies Yes, yes.") It had been a great pleasure to him to be associated with the educational work of that district for so many years. It had been to him a work of love always, and it was with the deepest possible regret that he had to lay down. He looked back upon it with great pleasure, and greater pleasure because of the association over all these years with the people to whom they owed more than him for the position which Barry held to- day-he meant the splendid band of teachers. He had always been deeply impressed with the single-minded devotion and the noble-hearted way in which they carried on thetr work. The pay they bad received would in no way recom- pense some of the teachers for the work they had done in the schools. (Cheers). He felt glad to be supported on the platform by au army of old friends, like Captain Murrell and Dr Aaron Davies, and the speaker referred to the effort to get an Intermediate School at Barry. Barry (he declared amid laughter) was never backward, but it was difficult to get the County Council to see that Barry should not be linked with Penarth, or that it was ever going to be a big town. Referring to elementary edu- cation, Mr Lowdon said the whole system was just now in the melting-pot, and those of them who cared anything for a high standard in edu- j cation 'Verp looking very anxiously to see in whatfem it won id come out from the pot. They earnestly hope that whateverform it took, and whatever authority they had at Barry, that there would be no lower:, i g of the high standard they bad had in that district in the past. (Cheers.) Personally, he felt sure that that would be the case. After what his friends had said, if be could bf- of any assistance to them in shaping their new authority, he would be glad to do it- (cheers) --but that must not be con- strued into a promi-e to go back into harness. (Laughter). On behalf of Mrs Lowdon, he thanked them also for the beautiful epergne. She deeply regretted that she could not he present, and she desired it to be known that if she could she would have been. It was true as Miss Fleming had stated, to some extert that Mrs Lowdon was the cause of his retire- ment, but seeing that for many years she saw little of him in the evenings, and nothing at all of him in the day time, she rightly considered that the time had come when she should at leapt see something of him. In conclusion, he again thanked them. (Cheers). Mr Herbert Leet then sang a solo. Dr W. Lloyd Edwards, in proposing a vote of thanks to General Lee, took advantage of the opportunity to refer to the valuable work dona by Mr Lowdon, to whom was due chiefly the credit for the splendid position of the Board. Mr Whitehouse, Barry, seconded the vote of thanks to General Lee. Mr Lowdon, in supporting the vote, said that General Lee was vice-chairman of the old Barry and Cadoxton School Board, of which he was chairman, not one of the members of which had the advantage of any previous experience, and were, therefore, quite untrammelled. (Cheers.) The vote wss carried, and General Lee then proposed a similar vote to the Chairman, the proceedings concluding with the National Anthem,
