CARDIFF COLOURED MEN Temperance Hotel Opened in "Tiger Bay." The coloured seamen who come to Cardiff are as frequently to be met with in unsavoury "Tiger Bay" as their whrte-oomplexioned com- rades who wander about the streets of Cosmo- politan Cardiff. On Monday afternoon scarcely a white man was to be seen in Maria-street and adjacent thoroughfares, and nearly every one of the blacks carried a gilt "C" upon his breast as the sign and symbol of his con- nection with the Coloured Associ ation-atarted in Cardiff just over a year ago by the Rev. J. H. Boudier, founder of the "Moon and Stars" Temperance Hotel, who is president of the association, and has enrolled upwards of 250 members, each of whom he knows personally and by name. The association has been the means of doing a great work for the stranger in a strange land. The commotion on Monday afternoon centred in the opening by Mr. Boudier, of "The Jolly Sailor," 4, Maria-street. Thus for the first time the coloured man has a home exclusively his own, where he can enter at all times, partake of refresh- ments, discuss the questions of the hour, play games, and sing his national plantation songs. The opening was preceded by a service in St. Mary s Church, the like of which for novelty has not been seen in Cardiff since the Rev. Father Daniele Radmilovich, a Dalmatian, addressed a congregation of Sclavs in St. David's Roman Catholic Church, Cardiff, some twelve years ago. The congregation was composed almost entirely of coloured men, who wera conducted to the front eeate. The service opened with the singing of !?tii people that on earth do dwell," and closed with the well-known "Rescue the perishing," Mr. Boudier accompanying on the har- monium. The vicar (the Rev. Gilbert Heaton) preached. After the service an adjourn- ment was made to "The Jolly Sailor," where in a stuffy room, crowded by coloured men, Mr. Boudier, as president, expressed regret at the absence of his worship the mayor, Lord Tredegar, the bishop of Llandaff, Mr. F. J. Beavan, and others, all of whom had written expressing sympathy with, and promising to support the movement. Mrs. Fletcher (Windsor-place) performed the opening ceremony. Omitting the press representatives, the only white men present were Mr. Leonard Phillips (solicitor), and Mr. J. S. Taylor.
