BRILLIANT SCENES IN THE ABBEY. A MEMORABLE PAGEANT. ENTHUSIASTIC CROWDS. i. A NATION'S REJOICING. The Coronation of Knifr Edward VII. and his Consort was hanpi-y .womplished on Saturday, Amid a display of popular rejoicing. The morning of the Coronation opened dull, but the sun soon shone through the clouds, and although during the d¡:y there was more shade than sunshine, the weather was on the whole suited to the crowds who gathered to acclaim their Majesties. At half-past four the first indication of a day Of ceremonials was given by the guns in Hyde Park and at the Tower, which announced sunrise Of the Coronation Day of King Edward and Queen Alexandra and right through the hours of morning, vxcirjii-. and night the streets of London were the scene of proceedings which have not before been witnessed by this generation. In every respect it was a gala day, and the pomp and pageantry left nothing to be desired from a spectacular point of view. Mediaeval splendour, combined with modern military magnificence and the gorgeous colour and picturesqueness of the East, made up a display the grandeur of which has never been sin-passed. OUTSIDE BUCKINGHAM PALAOE. Early in the morning men and women began to take their places in front of Buckingham Palace, where the King had rested since his return from Cowes on Wednesday. The time was not Wasted, for right on from early morning till the hour at which the Royal coach left the Palace there was a serif;, of processions of armed men -now New Zealandi-v: now Australians, again Woolwich and b:m;-nmut cadets, and at another time gorgeously in: formed Guardsmen, Yeomen of the Guard, I 'oyal Princes, Lord Kitchener, and other well- known figures were cheered to the echo as they passed to take up their positions on the line of route or in the procession. NIC UT THE ABBEY. The route trom Whitehall and along past Parliament-sqi!' re was tastefully decorated with streamers and bunting: a few of the public buildings were covered with flags and decorative devices of various shapes and sizes, while the stands which had been erected by the Office of Works, by the Westminster City Council, and the Hospital authorities, were from an early hour alive with spectators, most of whom were ladies, attired in light and dainty summer dresses. By eight o'clock the military had taken up their positions on either side of the roadway. The Grenadiers were stationed immediately facing the Abbey, while the Royal Fusiliers guarded the route in Parliament-square. Shortly after eight o'clock the Duke cf Connaught drove up in his motor-car. He was accompanied by General Trotter, and he gave a few final directions regarding the disposition of the troops. ARRIVALS AT THE ABBEY. Meanwhile, the Peers and Peeresses were ini«<n>ni.«0 They most of them drove up in their gorgeous State coaches-equipages of many colours drawn by richly caparisoned horses. Among the dis- tinguished guests who arrived about nine o'clock were the Lord Mayor, who came in his sumptuous State coach, and Mr. Balfour, who drove up in a brougham accompanied by Miss Balfour. The Prime Minister, however, passed into the Abbey unrecognised by the spectators. An interesting incident was the arrival in a Royal carriage of the Prince and Princess of Wales's children. They were heartily welcomed, and, in response to the cheers which greeted them, both Princes gravely saluted. Another burst of cheering Sreeted the two nurses who attended the King uring his illness. They had been specially invited by his Majesty. Onwards until 9.30, when the doors closed to all except the Royal participants in the day's ceremony, carriages rolled up in one unbroken stream. Here, through the closed window, one detected a learned Judge of the High Court in scarlet and ermine; there an Earl, in his official robes, his Countess, resplendent in white satin and jewels, by his side. Here came an Indian Maharajah, in turban and the picturesque costume of the East, accompanied by the Maharanee, also in native dress and alike resplendent in jewels. THE ROYAL PROCESSIONS. By half-past ten all was in readiness for the reception of the Royal processions. At last the booming of the guns in Hyde Park heralded the departure of the King and Queen from Bucking- ham Palace. A few minutes later the first procession came into view. It was composed of the members of the Royal Family, including the sisters and the daughters of the King, as well as some of the foreign guests, notably the Crown Prince of Denmark, the Duke of Sparta, Prince and Princess Henry of Prussia, and the Grand Duke of Hesse. The seven dress carriages and pairs were preceded by a glittering escort of Life Guards and Royal Horse Guards. The aged Duke of Cambridge, the Duchess of Albany, Princesses Victoria, Maud, and Louise-the three daughters of their Majesties riding together in one carriage-and Princess Beatrice were speedily noted, and cordially cheered. After an interval of a few minutes only the Prince and Princess of Wales, driving from York House in a procession composed of only three carriages, passed towards the Abbey, amid am outburst of demonstrative loyalty. THE KING'S PROCESSION. Then, with Royal punctuality, came the King's procession. The booming of the guns at the Tower and Hyde Park had intimated to the assembled thousands that their Majesties had left Buckingham Palace; and presently the head of the procession was seen coming from the direc- tion of Whitehall. At its head rode Lieutenant- Colonel J. S. Cowans, of the Headquarters' Staff, brilliant in uniform, leading an equally brilliant Sovereign's escort of the Royal Horse Guards. Behind these, affording a striking con- trast in colour, came the King's Bargemaster and a dozen watermen in their quaintly picturesque garb. Four dress carriages and pairs followed, conveying the household of their Majesties. After these carriages rode the personal staff of the Commander-in-Chief, and close behind came the Honorary Indian Aides- de-Camp to the Prince of Wales. Following them were the King's Aides-de-Camp, drawn from every branch of the Imperial Forces, and including amongst them the Maharajah of Cooch Behar, Sir Pertab Singh, Maharajah of Idar, and the Maharajah of Gwalior. Then came Lord Kitchener and Major-General Gaselee and Admiral Seymour, followed by the Headquarters' Staff of the Army. Lord Roberts, dignified and stately, rode next, carrying his Field-Marshal's baton, and then his Majesty's extra equerries and Prince Albert of Schleswig-Holstein and Prince Charles of Denmark. Escorts of Indian Cavalry, Colonials, and Household troops preceded the magnificent State^ coach in which appeared their Majesties, the iimg ann Yul-en, clothed in their Royal robes. The outburst of cheering and enthusiasm that greeted them was one which London has rarely witnessed, spectators on the stands rising from their seats and cheering vociferously, and waving hats and handkerchiefs frantically, as the great coach, drawn by eight cream palfreys with elaborate trappings, passed along. The King, though somewhat pale, seemed to be in excellent health and spirits, and he readily responded to the greeting of his people. The Queen, looking radiantly beautiful as over, was not less active in her responses to the cheers. Amid the shouts of the people and the playing of the National Anthem, the King and Queen entered the Abbey.
THE CROWNING IN THE ABBEY. Inside the Abbey the scene which presented itself to the fortunate spectators was one of magnificence. The nave and transepts were filled with tier upon tier of seats, draped in blue and amber. The Peers, in their crimson robes, occupied the south transept, with the Peeresses, in robes of similar colour, facing them in the north transept., Overhead, on either side, were stands set apart for members of the House of Commons, their families and friends, the men in every case appearing either in uniform or levee dress. Between the transepts and the altar the Royal boxes had been constructed on either side, that on the south for the King's guests and that on the north for the Queen's. In the nave were accommodated his Majesty's judges, knights of various Orders, representatives of the Universi- ties, the London and provincial Mayors, and a mixed assembly of English, Indian, and Colonial guests, who were not among those whose privilege it was to have seats within the choir screen. Between the tiaiis, was placed the "theatre," a raised platform on which the two thrones were placed on different levels, that of the King being reached by five steps, and the Queen's by three. On the south side of the altar were placed the Recognition chairs, with faldstools for both of their Majesties, and round about, between this and the transept, were grouped many of the high officers of State, Ambassadors, and others of distinction. Shortly before eleven a brilliant pro- cession of foreign Princes and Princesses entered and paced slowly up the nave to their places within the clioir, and a little later the Prince and Princess of Wales, richly apparelled and fully attended, proceeded to their respective positions—the Princess to the Royal box, and the Prince to one of three gilded chairs set in front of the Peers. The Duke of Connaught and the Duke of Cambridge, who were the centre of the next procession, took up their places on either side of the Prince. Just before half-past eleven the strains of the National Anthem from the band of the Life Guards outside announced their Majesties' arrival at the Abbey. Some time, however, was spent in the annexe, and it was not until nearly twelve o'clock that, the first of the three main processions passed through the west door, to the strains of a stately march played by the orchestra, under Sir Frederick Bridge. THE PROCESSION OF STATE. This procession was headed by the Chaplains- in-Ordinary to his Majesty, in scarlet robes, and there followed the Sub-Dean of the Chapels Royal, the Prebendaries of Westminster, the aged Dean of Westminster, Pursuivants, Officers of the Orders of Knighthood, Heralds, the Comp- troller and Treasurer of the Household, the Standards of Ireland, Scotland, and England; the Union Standard, carried by the Duke of Welling- ton the Keeper of the Crown Jewels bearing the two Ruby Rings and Sword of State; the four Knights of the Garter (Earls Cadogan, Rosebery, Derby, and Spencer), who were subsequently to hold the Canopy for the King's anointing; the acting Lord Chamber lain the Lord Steward; the new Premier (Mr. Balfour, attended by Mr. Robert Cecil) the Duke of Devonshire (whose coronet was carried by Mr. Edward Cavendish) the Archbishop of York, wearing a Gothic brocade coat of gold, yellow, and white, with bands and hood of crimson damask; the Lord High Chancellor; the Archbishop of Canterbury, in a cream brocaded damask coat edged with blue and gold, and ornamented with fleur-de-lis. THE QUEEN'S PROCESSION. A brief interval, and then Portcullis Pur- suivant, Windsor Herald, and Rouge Dragon Pursuivant headed the Queen's procession, and were immediately followed by the bearers of the Ivory Rod, the Sceptre, and Crown, behind whom walked the Queen, looking as beautiful as ever, and bearing herself with splendid dignity. Her Majesty's dress was magnificent. With the underdress of Indian embroidery, having a design of leaves and flowers of gold, there was a train of embroidery lined with cloth of gold. Over this was a robe of ruby velvet, with a cape of ermine lined with miniver and embroidered with various shaded golds. The magnificent embroidery included a rose tree and fleur-de-lis, a thistle and shamrock, the Star of India, and the Imperial Crown, and the whole was infinitely brilliant. Her Majesty's train was borne by the DWOLICSB "XJI OF TILRC— assisted by eight gentlemen. Immediately behind came the Ladies of the Bedchamber in waiting 5 Women of the Bedchamber and Maids of Honour, all beautifully apparelled. An equerry and Earl de Grey (her Majesty's Treasurer) brought up the rear of the procession, which moved on to the altar, where the Queen took her seat on the south side of the altar on a chair placed by the side of the King's Recognition chair. THE KING'S PROCESSION. Again there was a pause, and then, to the strains of the anthem, "I was glad when they said unto me we will go unto the House of the Lord," the King's procession advanced. Pre- ceded by heralds it was headed by the bearers of the King v ."alia—Earl Carri nylon, bearing St. Edward the Duke of Argyll, carrying the Sc( he Cross Lord Grey de Ruthin and the i m 1 of Loudoun, each carrying a golden spur; the Duke of Grafton, with the Curtana, flanked by Earl Roberts and Viscount Wolseley, carrying respectively the second and third swords. There immediately followed Norroy King-of-Arms, Ulster King-of-Arms, Lyon King-of-Arms, Clarenceux King-of-Arms, and Deputy Garter King-of-Arms, all in their tabards and collars the Lord Mayor of London in hiB robe, collar and jewel, bearing the City mace, the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod, the Lord Great Chamberlain of England, the High Constables of Ireland and Scotland, and Lord High Stewards of Ireland and Scotland, the Earl-Marshal and the Lord High Constable of England flanking the Marquis of Londonderry, bearing the Sword of State; the Duke of Marl- borough, carrying St. Edward's Crown; the Earl of Lucan, carrying the Sceptre with the Dove and the Duke of Somerset, bearing the Orb. Then the King appeared, preceded by the Bishop of Ely, canying the Patina; the Bishop of London, with the Bible and the Bishop of Winchester, with the Chalice. His Majesty had 011 cither side of him the Bishop of Bath and Wells and the Bishop of Durham. That he was still but convalescent was evident from the exceedingly slow pace at which he moved up the nave. Nevertheless, his step was firm, and unaided he walked the long distance from the west doors to the altar, bowing slightly to the left and right. The King wore the crimson robe of State, the cap of State, and the collar of the Garter. His Majesty's train was carried by the Earl of Portarlington, Marquess of Conying- ham, the Duke of Leinster, the Earl of Caledon, Lord Vemon, Lord Somers, Mr. H. E. Festinge, and the Hon. V. A. Spencer, assisted by Lord Suffield, the Master of the Robes. Immediately following the King came the Duke of Portland, Master of the Horse; Admiral Sir Michael Cuhne-Seymour, General Lord Chelmsford, Gold Stick in Waiting; the Duke of Buccleuch, Captain-General of the Royal Archer Guard of Scotland and Gold Stick of Scotland; Lord Kitchener, General Gaselee, and Lord Knollys, the King's private secretary, and a number of Household officials. The rear of the procession Was brought up by Yeomen of the Guard. His Majesty moved slowly to his Recognition Chair, placed on the south side of the altar bowing to the Queen before taking his seat. As the King moved up the nave he was 11 greeted by repeated shouts of "Vivat Edwardus" from the Westminster boys. THE CEREMONY. Then the ceremony began. The King, rising from his chair, the Archbishop of Canterbury I presented his Majesty to the congregation, who, ed by the choristers, acclaimed him with repeated shouts of "God Save King Edward," while the trumpets in 'the choir loft blew a fanfare. The Litany being omitted, to further shorten the service, the Archbishop proceeded immediately to the Communion Service. The sermon also being omitted, his Majesty was next .called upon to take the oath, and this solemnity was specially interesting, inasmuch as the King Was required to answer certain uucxtions lint to L him by the Archbishop. The King's replies were heard with the greatest clearness, being given deliberately and in a loud voice. Especially was this noticeable when at the last his Majesty laid his right hand upon the open Bible and said: "The things which 1 have here before promised I will perform, and keep. So help me, God." Having kissed the Book and signed the Oath, 'he King was conducted to King Edward's chur, where four Knights of the Garter-Earl Cadogan, Earl of Rosebery, Earl of Derby, and Earl Spencer-held over his head a canopy of pure cloth-of-gold. His Majesty was also relieved of his crimson robes by the Lord Great Chamberlain, after which Canon Duckworth, acting for the aged Dean of Westminster, took the Ampulla and Spoon from the altar, and, pouring some noly orrrmro TTre sptwrn, nanaea re to the Archbishop, who anointed the King on the crown of the head, the breast, and the palms of both hands, the choir meanwhile singing Handel's anthem, "Zadok the Priest." The Sail having been removed, the King rose from is chair, and was clothed in a tight-fitting tunic of cloth of gold, with a girdle of the same material. This was followed by a number of minor ceremonies of presentation. Following this the King was robed in the Imperial Mantle of cloth of gold, the clasps being fastened by the Lord Great Chamberlain. The King having again seated himself, the Orb, with the Cross, Was brought from the altar and placed in his hand, and the King's ring was placed upon the fourth finger of his right hand by the Archbishop. Now came the most impressive moment In the whole day's proceedings—the placing of the Crown of England upon the King's head, a prayer being first offered up. The Archbishop, assisted by other Bishops, advanced from the altar to King Edward's chair, and took from Canon Duckworth the Crown, Which he placed upon his Majesty's head. This Was the signal for loud and repeated shouts of KGod Save the King. The Peers and Kings of Arms all placed their coronets upon their heads, and, amid a triumphal fanfare of trumpets, an electric signal was despatched, and the guns at the Tower and in Hyde Park boomed forth the message that at last Edward the Seventh had been crowned King of England. At the moment of the Crown being placed on his Majesty's head the electric lights in the choir were turned on, and a brilliant flood of light illumined the spot where the King was seated. The incident was a most thrilling one. The Bible having been pre- sented to the King, and returned, the solemnity of the homage was next enacted. The Arch- bishop and the Bishops were the first to Dav homagg. The Prince of Wales also paid homage, kissed the King, and shook hands with him effusively. The representative Peers each filed before the King, touched his Majesty's crown, kissing him on the left cheek, and the comple- tion of the solemnity was greeted by a blare of trumpets and the cry of God Save King Edward. Long Live King Edward. May the King Live for Ever," by the people. This concluded the ceremony in so far as the King was concerned, and his Majesty was then conducted to his throne on the theatre, where he sat while his Royal Consort was crowned.
CROWNING THE QUEEN. The solemnity of crowning the Queen was conducted by the Archbishop of York, and while in its main features it resembled that performed over the King, it was much briefer and marked by much less incidental ceremony. Her Majesty was anointed and crowned at a footstool set before the steps of the altar, and, having received her Ring and Sceptres, she took her seat on her throne, beside, but lower than, the King's. No sooner was she seated than the Communion began, and their Majesties, relieving themselves of Crowns and Sceptres, again left their thrones to kneel before the altar. There they offered their oblations, and there, after the Archbishops ana me uean of Westminster had communicated, they received the Holy Eucharist. The Service concluded with an anthem and the Benediction, and then the King and Queen Sassed into St. Edward's Chapel, in order to isrobe and resume their robes of State. The interval which followed was very long.. The Te Deum and the National Anthem were sung, and then at last the Queen's procession appeared and passed through the choir and the nave to the annexe. Fully a quarter of an hour later the King's procession followed. His Majesty was now wearing that glittering diadem the Imperial Crown, and carrying in either hand the Sceptre with the Cross and the Sceptre with the Dove. Preceded by the great obles bearing the Regalia, and followed by the Officers of State, he passed down the Abbey, and as he reached the nave a scene of spontaneous and touching enthusiasm was presented. Ringing shouts of God save the King," "God bless the King," were raised on every hand, and this ovation his Majesty graciously acknowledged by bowing to left and right. Thus at last the great ceremony ended- some two hours after the first words of the Service had been spoken. From every point of View it was an imqtxalifled success.
THE RETURN FROM THE ABBEY. The return of the Royal procession from the Abbey to Buckingham Palace was a repetition of their Majesties' outward triumphal progress, the only difference being that the enthusiastic plaudits were more pronounced. The long delay in the time of his Majesty's departure from the Abbey was the cause of much speculation, anxiety growing into alarm when it was noticed that the King was more than an hour late. When the signal boomed out from Hyde Park that the King was crowned there was much cheering by the crowds waiting along the line of route, and the National Anthem was sung. The rest of the time until his Majesty's arrival was passed in listening to the music played by the various bands. When at last the King's proces- sion emerged into Piccadilly the cheering became almost delirious in its intensity. Lord Roberts was greatly applauded, and Viscount Kitchener received a positive ovation. His Majesty ancf Queen Alexandra were greeted along the return route via Piccadilly and Constitution-hill with tremendous enthusiasm, and such a loyal welcome as they can never forget. It was 2.48 when the Royal coach turned into Constitution-hill, and a few minutes later the front of the Palace was reached. Here a scene of indescribable enthu- siasm was witnessed. The great space was packed with cheering multitudes, and their Majesties, with smiling faces, bowed their acknowledgments of the ovation. But the crowd would not desist from demonstrating their loyalty, and even after their Majesties had entered the great square the people shouted and sang, handkerchiefs and hats. being waved enthu- siastically. To the intense joy of the thousands the King was seen a few minutes later on the balcony wearing his Crown and stately Corona- tion robes, and there was another rapturous burst of cheering. Again this demonstration was renewed when his Majesty was seen beckoning the Queen to come on the balcony, and when the Sovereign and his Consort stood facing their subjects round upon round of rousing cheers were raised. For two or three minutes the King and, Queen stood on the balcony, and the pleasure which they felt was clearly depicted on their faces.
THE ILLUMINATIONS. Although the illuminations in the metropolis at night were brilliant to a degree, they were not possibly on so lavish a scale as they would have been in June. The chief interest, of course, centred round the Bank. The entire facade was outlined in amber and crystal lamps, whilst the front carried a huge crystal panel 34ft. long. Upon it ran the legend, in letters of crystal of a deep ruby colour, "God Save the King and Queen." Below it was the Imperial Crown, on a ruby cushion, with the letters "E. R. whilst the long line of roof was broken at intervals with arches of lamps and with flambeaux, the central pair being 10ft. high. There were, besides, double garlands of crystal lamps, looped with ruby bows. The sole illuminant used was gas, and the curious will be interested to learn that the cost was about a per hour. The banks in the immediate neighbourhood vied with the national institution, and Threadneedle- street and all around was ablaze with light and colour. Cheapside, Queen Victoria street, Princes-street, Lothbury, Cornhill, Lombard- street, Old Broad-street, and Ludgate Hill also preferred special claims to the attention of the sightseer. The peace trophy round the statue of William IV. was strikingly original. Peace, enthroned with an olive branch in one hand, an orb in the other, and eornueopise at her feet, was surrounded with electric lamps. Coming westward to Ludgate-circus, and on through Fleet-street, there was no falling-off in point of interest; in Fleet-street some exceedingly tasteful devices were displayed by the leading newspapers. The Strand, perhaps, scarcely rose in general to the occasion but as one got into the West proper there were abundant compensations. For were there not Marlborough House, York House, and Clarence House, with m»»\y »»ore nesiaes, co gaze at? Piccadilly and St. James's-street made a brave show, tricked out with bunting from end to end, and brightly illuminated. In Pall Mall the clubs, as is usual on occasions of rejoicing, were Well worth seeing-, so was the Haymarket,
A GIANT PINE. A g-j;¡lIt pine has just cocie to grief (says the "Tribune de Geneve") in the Oberland. It was 160 fee; high, bad a diameter of 47 inches at the 1,a,,(- and was about 200 years old.

Holmes A'Court, Mr Robert Forrest, Mr J. Lovat Fraser, Dr and Mrs Treharne, Mr and Mrs Collum, Mr and Mrs F. P. Jones-Lloyd, Mr and Mrs F. W. Hybart, Mr and Mrs E. J. Thorpe, and Mr and Mrs Kemptborne. Col. Wyndham-Quin delivered a short address, in the course of which he referred to the origin and growth of the Primrose League, and hoped the Ely Habitation would do its best towards promoting the Unionist cause in South Glamor- gan. Referring to the Education Bill the bon. member said he felt sorry that such an im- portant matter as education bad been the cause for so much bitterness throughout the country. He had received a number of letters asking him to favour popular control, but he had acceded to none of the requests, because personally he thought the one-third representation was sufficient. On coming before his constituents he was afraid be would meet with hostility on this point, but he believed there would be far greater hostility if he voted for the extinc- tion of Voluntary Schools, and thus cause an expenditure of 20 millions in erecting schools to replace them. The hon. member, referring to the Coronation ceremony, at which he was present, felt sorry that one of the most fertile parts of the kingdom, which had produced a number of orators, lawyers, and bighly respected ladies, was not represented. That country was Ireland—(shame)—but he hoped the people of that country would soon become reconciled and be loyal subjects. Mr Robert Forrest, J.P in proposing a vote of thanks to Colonel Wyndham-Quin, said it was largely due to the valuable political services rendered by members of the Primrose League in the constituency that South Glamorgan had in the last two Parliaments been represented by a Unionist member. (Cheers.) Mr Forrest r, ferred to the valuable aid rendered to the movement by Mrs Jenner, and described Colonel Wyndbam-Quin as an ideal member of Parlia- ment, who, when his country was in danger, came forward, and, having raised a company of brave volunteers in Glamorganshire, proceeded to South Africa to fight their battles. (Cheers). Mr F. W. Hybart seconded, and the resolu- tion was carried. Mr J. A. Lovat Fraser (Barry) proposed a vote of thanks to Mrs Jenner. Mr F. P. Jones-Lloyd, solicitor, Barry, seconded, and the vote was greeted with musi- cal honours. Owing to the continued inclemency of the weather, the remainder of the proceedings- J the musical and other entertainments—were gone through in the mansion. Tea was provided in a marquee on the lawn, the catering being in the bauds of Mr W. Farmer. ot the Castl2 Hotel, Barry Dock. The Cardiff Hungarian Band and a minstrel troupe were present.

Lve, R.E., J.P., gave an At Honieat i he- Mount on Monday afternoon in connection with the work of the Church Army, a brunch of which was advocated by Captain Hanson (London), to be established in South Wale*.

ONLY A LITTLE MORE HELP. ANOTHER CHANCE FOR THE CONSERVATIVES. Mr J. A. Hughes, the hon. secretary of the Nursing Association, has succeeded in obtaining a second subscription amounting to the handsome sum of 120 from the Barry Dock Liberal Workmen's Club and Insti- tute, bringing the total from this institution to L23. The members and committee of the club are to be highly congratulated upon this fresh evidence of their generosity. The Liberal Club has thus contributed more than the whole of the Conservative and other clubs in the district put together, but we have no doubt that these will follow this splendid example and give a second time. In the same manner all private individuals and local institutions are asked to make another small effort. Less than L300 will now be required, and with a good effort put forth this sum ought to be easily secured. Will you try ?

Church Bazaar at Barry Dock. IN AID OF THE FUNDS OF ST. MARY'S. On Wednesday and Thursday a grand bazaar was organised and held at the Continental Stores, Barry Dock, in aid of the building fuad of the proposed new church of St. Mary. Mrs 0- H. Jones (Fonmon Castle) opened the sale on Wednesday, and Major-General H. H. Lee on Thursday. Owing to numerous counter attractions and exceedingly unpropitious weather, the bazaar was not opened under very auspicious circumstances, the attendance being small. There was quite a gay profusion of articles on the various stalls. Side shows were also provided, Mr W. Cross managing the ping- pong board, the orchestral music being pro- vided by Mr Arthur Roberts. Stallholders in- cluded members of the sewing class, including Mrs Ansell, Mrs Barnett, Mrs Causer, Mrs Coles, Mrs Cottle, Mrs Howell, Miss Minnis, and Mrs Nerman and other ladies included Mrs Bray, Mrs Wilde, Mrs Willett, and Mrs Gray; Miss Budge, Mra Cannell, and Mrs Dix; Mr and Mrs Cutter, Mr and Mrs Morgan, Mrs Leek, Mrs T.

S. Bomash by Messrs J. Jenkins, C. Seward, and George Thomas. Mr John Sankey (instructed by Messrs James aud Co.) appeared for the plain- tiff, whilst Mr B. Francis-Williams (instructed by Mr Cadle) was for defendants.—After hear- ing the arguments from counsel, judgment was given for the plaintiffs with costs.
Submarine Miners' Encampment. The camp this year on Barry Island, which came to a termination on Saturday, has been voted by the men to be one of the best in the history of the corps. All the arrangements being worked to perfection, the cooking being good, and the comfort of the men given every possible consideration. Before breaking-up Major Hughes attended in the mess-tent, and after referring to the admirable training and the splendid behaviour of the men called for three cheers for the King, a. loud response being given. The men then called for three cheers for Major Hughes, their officer in command, the men leaving the camp with happy recollections of a pleasant and profitable time.
Barry Nursing Association. THE OVERDRAFT. The monthly meeting of the Barry Nursing Association was held at the Njirses' Home, Woodland-road, on Tuesday evening last. There were present Mr W. J. Blainey (chair- man), Mrs F. P. Jones-Lloyd, Messrs J. Sharpe, J. H. Brough, John Davies, and Evan Jones. The lady superintendent (Miss Rice) reported that there were 40 cases on the books from last month to which 718 visits bad been paid by the s The new cases last month numbered 18. Coun^iiiur J. A. Hughes re- ported that the overdraft was now £ 558 19s again8t £489 of last month.. Dr Budge, of Cadoxton, was elected on the executive com- mittee in the room of the late Dr Kelly.

SNAP SHOTS. The 2nd Glamorgan Artillery Vols. start gan practice at Lavernock on Saturday next. The Rev W. Ingli James, of Barry, officiated at a Bapti t anniversary at Caerleon on Sunday last. A second batch of Cardiff children were brought down to Barry and enjoyed themselves on Whit- more Bay last Friday. The Submarine Miners encampment broke up on Saturday, the inspection by Maj,)r Dumbleton on the previous day by very successful. Major Wyndham Quin, M.P., attendpd 149 divisions in the House of Common; last Session out of a ptssible 384. Tnere were no fewer than 84 Divisions on the Education Bill itself. Mr Andrew Carnegie ha-s agreed to make a grant net exceeding f200 in aid of the free library move- ment at Hint. He has d< cliued a similar applica- tion from Holywell. The prize drawing fllr the bei-efit of Mr Jenkins, Kingsland crescent, Barry Dock, has been post- poiied until September 27th. Winning numbers will appear in f e BAKRY HKRALD for October 3rd. A better illustration of the effect of the termina- tion of the war cannot be found than that at Barry Dock, where there are some of the finest transports afloat wailing, like Wilkias' "Macawber" for something to turn up." The men of the 2nd Glamorgan Volunteer Ar- tillery, under Major Brain, helped to line the route in the Mall on Coronation Day. They received high praise for the manner in which they had discharged their duties. Mr Beaumont Morria who recently addressed a meeting at Barry on the Education question is the selected candidate in opposition to Mr H. W. Foster in the Sevenoaks Division of Kent at the approaching bye-election. The Vale of Glamorgan Railway shareholders' meeting on Friday last was one of the shortest on record. It lasted about five minutes and confined to the purely formality of declaring a 3i per cent. dividend. Cadet L. G. Dudley, of the Indian Civil Service, brother of Mrs C. F. G. Sixsmith, Barry Dock, had the distinction of being one of the guard of honour to the King at Buckingham Palace on Coronation Day: Mr Lloyd Mevrick, solicitor, made quite a senti- mental appeal to the magistrates on behalf of Barry Island obstructionists, and won his point by that means. The chief trend of his remarks was that the fruit-sellers who obstruct the roadway on the Island by supplying the innocent wants of the thousands of visitors and by that means were doing a service to the town in providing for visitors. This is hard on poor Cadoxton. The County Medical Officer of Health suggest to the Barry District Council the advisability of fixing all common lodging-houses at that place, and all sea- men's boarding-houses at Barry Dock. This is nearly as bad as an enterprising brake driver at Barry Island who announced to see the ruins of Cadoxton." The unenviable notoriety which Barry Council once gained for unseemly conduct of its members seemed to have affected Cardiff, and at Monday's meeting of the Town Council we read that one member went up to the other and called him Coward," and was about to strike when Alder- man Ramsdale interposed. In Barry's dark days things were more politely conducted. Here it was an invite to settle the matter outside." The following has a loeal signification — No doubt in these days of joint stock companies most justices of the peace (says the "Law Times") have shares in some brewery company or other, but they must bear in mind that such a holding disqualifies them from acting for any purpose under the Licensing Act if such company carries on business in the licensing district, or in the dis- trict or districts adjoining to- that in which such justices usually act. This was brought into pro minence in a case before Mr Justice Phillimore last week, where a justice was sued successfully for penalties, although when sitting he had bona fide forgotten that he was the holder of shares, and so disqualified.
Death of a Barry Tradesman. We regret to announce the death of Mr Edward Hind, proprietor of the Royal Restaurant, Dock View-road, Barry Dock, which took place on Wednesday morning last. Deceased was 45 years of age, and was one of the first to open a place of business in this town. The funeral will take place on Friday, the place of interment being at Merthyr Dovan Cemetery. Deep sympathy is felt with the widow and family.

Assault on the High Seas. At the Barry Police-oourt to-day, Charles Valentiae McCarthy, second mate of the steamer Reynolds" was charged with assaulting on the high seas one James Doherty, a seaman of the same ship. Prosecutor was painting abaft of the en- gineer's house aud was smoking the same time. McCarthy came along and struck him in the face. For the defence it was stated that smoking while on watch was a serious otenee. McCarthy admitted pushing prosecutor, but did not strike him. Evi- dence was called in support of the defence proving that Doherty was not struck. The magistrates decided the offence had been committed, and fined McCarthy 10s and costs.
