MESSRS. W. BUCKLEY & CO. EMPLOYEES' ANNUAL OUTING. AVcdnescay last was selected for the annual picnic in connection with Messrs Buckley & Co.'s establish- ment. The morning opened with rain, disagreeable and dispiriting, but soon after the departure of the early train from Bridgend, the liquid element lost its way. leaving the heavens but threatening. The journey from Cardiff by boat was very pleasant, the channel being like a mill-pond. The destination was Weston, and the members of the company did not in any wise regret the choice of their rendezvous. A hearty dinner was partaken of at Messrs Huntley and Son's Restaurant, at the conclusion of which the Chairman (Mr W. E. Rogers) called upon Mr W. ■ H. Evans to propose the toast of the 'Employers.' In submitting this toast Mr Evans dwelt on the good feeling which existed between the master? and the men. The masters' interests, he said, were identical with those of the men, and when bot^ parties workel in unison, they were the reapers p,nd not the losers by it. The toast was enthusiastically honoured, and ht this juncture many wfje the expressions of regret at the absence of Mr Buckley, who was unable to attend in consequence of his mother's indisposition. The Rev W. Crouch, MrE. Thorntc,fl) and Mr W. E. Rogers, who accompanied the party, followed with good speeches, and were pleased to understand that such good feeling existed between capital and labour. Mr C. Corbett, orjC of the oldest hands I under the firm, replied. to the toast of The Employees.' The top,st of The Steward' (Mr Ware) was drunk rir nt heartily, he having carried out the arrangements to the satisfaction of all. The company now dispersed until tea. The mighty sun had by thic-, time pierced through the canopy of clouds and shone with enlivening effulgency. Drives Wjre taken in divers directions, and various pilgrimages made to resorts of interest. The asual amusing escapades attending these functions "came off" and the miscellaneous per- formances on the beach were wen patronised. After tea the return journey was taken, the trip across channel being mild. Cardiff was reached at 9.15 and Bridgend about 11. A most enjoyable day was spent, and Mr Buckley was initiated a member of the society of "jolly good felloes.'
