THE resolution of the watch committee yesterday, to erect a new police-station at Cathays, will be hailed with much satisfac- tion by the inhabitants of that popu- lous suburb. Such a resolution ought to have been come to a couple of years ago, but better late than never." The tradespeople especially of Cathays will have reason to rejoice when the new station j completed, for at present they are a constant prey to bands of predatory boys, who lay hands on whatever they can steal. We saw a little crowd of them the other evening; of all ages from nine to fifteen, one of the biggest cutting slices from a large currant cake, which one of the youngest had "nicked" froma confectioner's shop. They took no notice of ordinary passers-by, but one of them, with more than usually sharp ears, detected the slow, heavy tread of a constable coming round the corner noc far off, and the whole lot were out of sight ere the policeman made his appearance. But petty thefts from shopkeepers are not the only inconveniences from which the ratepayers of Cathays have to suffer. At one of the drinking clubs a sort of free and easy is almost nightly carried on, too often till the small hours of the morning, to the great annoyance of the neighbours, who openly talk of summoning +he manager. The presence of a police- station and a larger force of constables may minimise this sort of nuisance.
