Mr. Hy. Owen, in proposing the toast of < »e' Judges," expressed regret that the judges with the exception of Mr. Rogers, had been obliged to leave the town earlier in the even- ing. All who had attended the show would agree that the judges had had a very onerous duty to perform. It was really a. laborious duty, because the entries in the various classes had multiplied. The committee were determin- ed to raise the status of the show. They did not want Merthyr to take her hat off to any other town; they intended being on top of the poll. They were going up by degrees, and he trusted the townspeople would rally round the committee, and support them (applause).—Mr. Geo. Rogers, in responding, said the other judges told him that the show that day was the finest. May Show they had ever attended. The quality of the exhibits was excellent; the judges agreed that it was not a May Show, but a high quality horse show (applause). They also said that they had very great difficulty in iudging owing to the quality of the animals, because owing to the rules of the Society, they had to take defects—especially soundness—into consideration. He agreed it was time that Mer- thyr held a larger show, because it would be difficult to find a better quality horse than was to be found in the borough applause). Mr. Dd. Jones, Wellfield, Dowlais. proposed "Success to the May Show." He said he took the credit of being one of the founders of the Merthyr May Show. H had attended nearly all the meetings, and he was pleased to find' that the show was so ably conducted to-day (applause). He hoped to be of much sei-vice to the show in future years (applause). He coupled with the toast the names of Mr. Hy Owen, the secretary (Mr W. T. Jones), and Mr T. Powell. Mr. Henry Owen first responded, and he re- ferred as a lover of horseflesh to the quality of the horses they had seen in the show. He prophesied that future shows would be a credit to South Wales. He thanked the president for the work lie had done, referred to the interest taken in the exhibition by Mr. Dd. Jones, and the work done by the secretary.- -These crentle- men responded, as did also Mr. T. Powell. During the evening songs were suns: by Mr. Reece Price, Mr. Mat Delacey, and others, and Mr. Dai Davies, the whistler, also delighted the company.
