BARRY ORDINARY AND PREFERENCE STOCKS. The ring of Barry stock is still a cheerful one. Mr Lyddon's notes in last week's South Wales Investment Circular state Barry Dock and Railways ordinary and preference stocks have continued in favour, the former being bought up to 191 per cent., and the third 5 per cent. preference stock, which was lately issued at 120, having been freely taken at 127-L, at which an investment will yield £3 2 18s 6d per cent., or 10s per cent. more than is obtained from Taff Vale or Rhymney Rail- way preference stocks."
OUR SCHOOL BOARD AND THE TEACHERS' SALARIES. There will doubtless be a good deal of un- friendly criticism pronounced over the mem- bers of the Cadoxton and Merthyr Dovan School Board for having presumed to suggest, at their last meeting, that their staff of teachers is an inadequately paid one, but we are inclined to believe that the admission, when properly investigated, will be found to be perfectly justifiable, and that the niggardly salaries paid at present to some of the teachers, ranging from J350 to J360 a year (the latter, we believe, being the paltry pittance given by way of remuneration to some of the head teachers) are utterly incompatible with the large furure in store for the Board. We heartily agree, then, with the remark made by Mr Blackmore that the Board expect good results from the schools, and they should con- sequently pay their teachers good salaries. The matter needs nothing, by way of argu- ment, to commend it to the dictates °of reason and common sense, for it is palpably preposterous to expect a young man or woman, fairly well educated at the outset, to serve an apprenticeship of at least four years as a school teacher, then spend a course of two years at a training college, qualify for his or her certificate as a fully competent master or mistress of an elementary school, and then settle down to a life of educational worry and anxiety for the miserable consideration of less than 25s per week What labouring man (with no educational qualifications whatever) can be had to work even for 25s perweek? Then how can the School Board expect to employ a highly competent staff of teachers the services of several members of which are so parsimoni- ously compensated ?
THE BARRY DOCK DISTRICT AND THE LORD LIEUTENANCY OF GLAMORGANSHIRE. We cordially congratulate Lord Windsor, the esteemed chairman of the Barry Dock and Railways Company, upon his appointment as Lord Lieutenant for the County of Glamorgan, and fully believe that, closely and largely identified as his lordship is with the political, commercial, and general life of the county, a worthier appointment could not possibly have been conferred, by her Majesty the Queen, upon any subject in Glamorganshire. Lord Windsor has a very large stake in the great undertaking of the Barry Company, and we liope that no time will be lost in drawing the tttention of his Lordship to the fact that here is not a single resident magistrate in the 3arry and Cadoxton district. The serious- less of this want, as we have before repeatedly itated, is urgently felt almost daily, and we hope amongst the earliest recommendations which Lord Windsor will make to the Lord Chancellor will be for the appointment, as magistrate, of a gentleman resident in the district, whose services in that capacity will be available whenever required, for it is cer- tainly a great' anomaly that at present, amongst a population of 10,000 or 12,000 persons, resort has constantly to be made to magistrates living at Penarth, Cardiff, and other places. There are gentlemen in the dis- trict fully qualified to accept magisterial honours, and we trust Lord Windsor will promptly be requisitioned in the matter, so that an early and judicious selection may be made.
PROPOSED STIPENDIARY MAGISTRATE FOR 0 PENARTH AND CADOXTON. Reference is made in our last note to the want of a resident magistrate for the Barry and Cadoxton district, but Mr George Thomas, one of the members of the Local Board, goes a step further, and expresses his opinion that the time is not far distant when the appoint- ment of a stipendiary magistrate will have to be made for Penarth and Cadoxton, a district involving a collective population of between 20,000 and 30,000. However, there can be no doubt that in a very short time important advances in this direction will have J bo be made, and the sooner public opinion is h natured to the fact the better. I
TRANSVAAL RAILROADS. The Transvaalers are definitely committed to a policy of railroads. It appears that the line recently sanctioned by the Volksraad is to run from Pretoria 35 miles to Johannes- burg, and then southward about 80 miles to a point on the Vaal river, where it will meet the railway now in process of construction in the free state, and upon which Mr G. W. Smith, late inspector of works at Barry Dock, is now engaged as inspector. A Durban telegram announces that the Free State Volksraad has agreed, by a large majority, to extend the Bloemfontein railway to the Vaal, and that it is expected the Natal line will join near Senckal. With tBese works complete there would be a choice of routes to the inland republics by Algoa Bay, Natal, or Delagoa Bay, a prospect upon which the communities that will benefit by the improvements are to be heartily congratulated. South Africa is quite enthusiastic, and predicts the develop- ment alike of all gold mines and golden dividends, at a speed which will justify most sanguine language.
MR WALKER'S ALLEGED CLAIM AGAINST THE BARRY COMPANY. We were informed on most reliable author- ity on Thursday (yesterday) morning that no notice whatever, nor even the slightest intimation of such notice, had then been received by the solicitors of the Barry Dock and Railways Company with regard to the alleged claim, estimated to amount to about B150,000, from the execcters of the late Mr T. A. Walker, with reference to extras in connection with the contract for the construction of the dock works at Barry. Consequently the rumours that have this week been circulated in this direction are entirely unfounded.
BARRY DOCK TOWN, (CADOXTOX. ) CORRECTION.—In our last issue we stated that a lawn tennis ground was about being opened at the Old Village, on land let* by Mr L. Hughes, draper, and that Mr W. R, Hopkins, cheTni-t.' was one of the promoters of the movement. We haveeiiice boon informal that t 1:0 staleuient is in- correct. NEW BUILDING PKOFERTY.—We are informed that nearly twenty new houses aie being built in Quarella-strcet, Harry Dock Town, by a building club composed principally of industrious and enterprising working men from the Rhondda Valley. The architects of th" props, riy are Messrs Seward and Thomas, of C.u Jili' and Barrv Dock Town. THE PrBLir LAMPS.—It is most trratifving to the public of Barry Dock Town to realise tha"the nocturnal darkne.-s in their midst has a, last been dispelled by means of the new street lamps, which were lit for the first time on Wednesday evening last. MR U. W. SMITH.—We note in the liloemfonttin DaUy Express of JOay 7th, just to hand, that Mr j, G. W. Smith, late ot Barry Dock, was amongst a large and influential company present at the Town Hall, Bloenfontein, at a banquet given to Sir Henry Brougham Loch, Her Majesty's High Commissioner for South Africa, and Governor of the Cape Colony. ERRATA.—In oui report last week of the opening services of the English Congregational Chapel at East Barry, we should have stated that the tea, cake, &e., were supplied by Mrs Howe, of the Commercial and Temperance Hotel, Barry Dock Town, whose catering on the occasion gave un- qualified satisfaction. THE PROPOSED WELSH CHURCH.—We arc very pleased to learn that Major General Lee, J.P., of The Mount, Vina" Powis, has subscribed JB10 towards the building fund of the proposed Welsh Church for the parish of Cadoxton. Mr O. H. Jones, J.P., Fonmon Castle, has also kindly con- tributed £ 2 2s towards the same fund. A con- venient site near the Police-station is, we believe, I about being secured for the Church, ncgociations to this end at present proceeding between the promoters and Messrs Seward and Thomas, the .architects of the estate on which the site is situated. ACCIDENT.—On Saturday afternoon last, a little girl named Fanny Spratt, aged about seven years, was taking a tea kettle of boiling water off the fire in her parents' house at 7, Beverley-street, in this town, when her apron caught fire, and her clothes were much burnt and her side injured. FORTHCOMING CHURCH CHORAL FESTIVAL AT LLAXDAFF CATHEDRAL.—On Wednesday evening last Mr W. Seaton, the general conductor of the choirs which will take part in the Diocesan Church Choral Festival to be held at Llandaff Cathedral on Thursday, the 26th of June, paid a visit to this town, and conducted a rehearsal of the local choir at the Parish Church. Mr Seaton will pay another visit to Barry Dock Town for the same purpose in the course of two or three weeks.. A MONSTER DUCKS EGG.—On Wednesday last a duck belonging to Mr Samuel Blake, living at Brook-terrace, in this town, "gave birth" to a monster egg. It measured eight inches by six inches in circumference, and weighed five ounces. MASONS.—Messrs John James and Son, builders, are ereeting a large number of villas in Graving Dock-street, Barry and Dock, are advertising for twenty good walling masons. A PRACTICAL VIEW OF GOSPEL TEMI-ERAXCE. -At a very successful meeting of the Gospel Tem- perance movement, held at Barry Dock Town on Saturday evening last, several new pledges were taken, and a collection was made in behalf of a cer- tain poor family in the town. A similar collection will be made in aid of another deserving sufferer at the same meeting to-morrow (Saturday) even- in sr. THE MERTHYK BUILDING SOCIETY are prepared to advance sums of 21CO to JB2,000 on Leasehold Properties in Cadoxton, Barry Dock, and Barry. Forms of application and full particalars may be obtained on application to Lewis Lewis, District Agent, Barry Dock Chambers, Vere-street, Cadoxton. (Add.) HEARTS OF OAK MEDICAL AGENCY.—All mem- bers of the Hearts of Oak Benefit Society wishing to join the above agency are respectfully requested to attend a meeting to be held at the Royal Hotel, Barry Dock Town, on Wednesday next, at 8 p.m., for the purpose of passing rules and enrolling members. Any information can be ob- tained from the secretary, Mr H. Fisher, 4, Northcote-terrace, Barry Dock Town.
HOLTON (BARRY DOCK). SUDDEN DEATH.—On WednesdajT evening last the death took place, in a remarkably sudden manner, of a man named Samuel Counter, at 87, Richard-street, Holton, Deceased was at work up till six o'clock the same evening, and died shortly after reaching home. An inquest will be held on the body at the Victoria Hotel to-day (Friday) at, five o'clock. ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL POLICE RAID.—A squad of local police (under the direction of P.S. Gill) made a raid upon a certain house at Holton on Sunday afternoon last, and during their clandestine visit obtained sufficient evidence to justify proceedings being taken against the worthy host for keep- ing a shebeen. The thanks of the public are due to the police for their shrewdness and activity in making these periodical raids.
EAST BARRY. THE NEW CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH. — The opening services at the above place of worship were continued on Sunday last, when sermons were preached by the Rev Principal Allen, of Bristol Theological Institute, to large congrega- tions. The chapel is now entirely free from debt. On Sunday next the Rev F. Herbert Stead, of Oxford, will preach, and, on the following Sunday (June 15th), the church will be formed after the evening service by the Rev J. Williamson, M.A., Cardiff. THE PRIMROSE LEAGUF.Last evening (Thurs- day) a public meeting was held at East Barry in connection with the Windsor Habitation of the Primrose League. The chair was occupied by Mr J. Robinson, C.E., East Barry House, and an eloquent address was delivered on the constitution and princiDles of the League by Mr Booth-Barry, an Irish political orator of considerable distinction. At the close of the address, on the motion of the chairman, an enthusiastic vote of thanks was ac- corded Mr Booth-Barry, followed,, on the motion of the Rev J. Price, by a similar compliment to the chairman. We will refer at greater length to the lecture in our next issue.
PENARTH, PASSENGER TRAFFIC TO CADOXTON.— NOM- that passenger trains run from Penarth to Cadoxton, the increase in the number of passengers booked at Penarth Station will be considerable, and the it necessity for a second booking office becomes more and more apparent.—Argus. ORDINATION.—Amongst those ordained by the Lord Bishop of St. David's, at the Parish Church, Abergwili, on Sunday last, on letters of request from the Bishop of Llandaff, was Mr John Thomas Tones, of Wadham College, Oxford, and B.A. of 3t. David's College, Lampeter. Mr Jones was subsequently licensed to the curacy of Penarth.
BARRY DOCK. THE SECRETARYSHIP OF THE RIGGERS AND BOAT- MEN'S UNION.—We learn that Mr Eustace T. Curtis, of Barry Dock and Cardiff, has been ap- pointed secretary of the Barry Dock Riggers and Boatmen's Union in succession to Mr J. Sam- brook, resigned.
COGAN. SCHOOL BOARD.-The monthly meeting of the School Board was held at the Cogan Schools on Tuesday evening last, when there were present— Messrs J. S. Corbett (chairman), H. O. Fisher, F. Kastell, W. Brown, and J. Pavey. The teachers' reports were read, and cheques signed as follow —Mrs Ives (caretaker), £2 12s Mr Powell (for coal), 9s Mr Aylward (bye-law officer), £3 5s teachers' salaries, JMO 10s 4d.—The annual exam- ination of Cogan Schools was held last month, and the Inspector expressed himself highly pleased with the tone, discipline, and general work. The report is expected in a few days.
COWBRIDGE. NOTICE OF DIVIDEND.—Gilead Spencer, Gile- stone, near Cowbridge, Glamorganshire, farmer, a bankrupt, composition dividend, 6s 8d in the L, payable May 30th, at the Official Receiver's, Cardiff.

Williams deposed to finding several men in the house, some living within the prescribed dis- tance.-Fined £1 including costs.Two men named William Hopkin and John Mordecai, for being on the aforesaid premises, had to pay a fine of 5s each and costs. MONTHLY MARKET.— There was a very limited supply of fat cattle at Cowbridge market on Tues- ,.day last. Prices were rather against the seller, being from 6d to 6id per lb. Fat calves realised 4 from 8^d to 9 £ d per lb. Cows and calves (in large supply) ranged at from £ 15 to £ 20. Fat sheep were in good supply, but not equal to the demand', and all on offer changed hands at quite lOd per lb. Ewes and lambs sold at from 56s to 80s per couple. Fat lambs, from lO-^d to lid per lb. Pigs were in average supply, and sold well at from 17s to 42, each, according to age and quality.
LLANTWIT MAJOR. THE S'-iiooi. BOARD.—The tenure of the present School Board has almost come to a close, and notices are already posted for the election to take place on the 22nd instant. Of the old Board only two now remain, viz., Mr D. J. Jenkins (Gnat Frampton) and Mr John Thomas (Tile Hor.^e, Boverton.) Messrs G. W. Nicholl and W. Davies have been taken away by death. Mr J. Garsed, the late clerk, lias removed to Porthcawl. In place of Mr Garsed, Mr Winwood, excise officer, was? elected, and instead of the late Mr Nicholl, his eldest son was elected. It is to be hoped the new board will discharge its duties as efficiently and painstaking as the old board.
# HONOUR TO THE RESIDENT ENGINEER OF THE BARRY COMPANY. MR. ROBINSON AWARDED THE TELFORD MEDAL. DESERVING RECOGNITION ON THE PART OF THE SOCIETY OF CIVIL ENGINEERS.

MUSICAL FESTIVAL AT EAST BARRY. SUCCESSFUL PROCEEDINGS. A most successful choral festival was held on Wednesday last at the Public Hall, East Barry, in connection with the Calvinistic Methodists of the district. The voices numbered nearly 300, and consisted of choirs from the churches at the following places :—Cowbridge, Soar (Bonvilstone), St. Athan, East Barry, Barry Dock Town (English and Welsh), Penmark, Pendeulwyn, and Trehill. The conductor of the proceedings during the day was Mr D. Jenkins, .\lus. Bac. Aberystwith, whose exceptional ability and popularity constitute a sufficient assurance of the high degree of success which attended the festival throughout. The Chairman of the morning meeting was the Rev J. Daniels, Penmark ;intheafternoon, Mr J. Lloyd, East Barry; and in the evening, the RevJ. W. Matthews, Barry Dock Town, each of whom delivered addresses suitable to the occasion. Addresses were also delivered by the Rev T. R. Lloyd, Dinas Powis, and Mr D. Jenkins. The attendance at each meeting was a large one, especially in the eveninf, meeting, when the hall was densely crowded, and all present seemed highly pleased with the excellent rendering of the various pieces by the choirs. During the intervals between the meet- ings refreshments were provided by Mrs Howe, proprietress of Howe's Comnercial and Tem- perance Hotel, Barry Dock Town, whose efforts to satisfy the inner wants of the hundreds of persons who participated in her bountiful spreads were abundantly successful.

Davies, Ebbw Vale). The accompanists were—Morning, Miss Davies, Llan- bethery; afternoon, Miss Howe, Barry Dock Town and in the evening, Miss Thomas, St. Athan.
IMPORTANT REMARKS BY MR. D. JENKINS, MUS.BAC. At the close of the evening's programme, Mr D. Jenkins, Mus. Bac., delivered an address of an important character to the choirs, dealing largely and forcibly with the ne- cessity for the introduction of Welsh tunes, clothed in English words, into English services. It would be a great advantage to English churches, and to the development of Welsh music, if this suggestion was adopted. He would urge that the best Welsh tunes should be made use of in this way, and any inferior Welsh tunes at present in use should be done away with. There was a great lack of variety in congregational singing in Wales. The Welsh M*ere prone to use Welsh minor tunes rather than the more valuable major tunes. There was nothing, he added, grander than the simple minor tunes in their way, but congregations found a more fully developed outlet for their religious feelings in the splendid major tunes of some of the most prominent Welsh composers. If Welsh congregations thus adopted the works of the best Welsh musicians into their English services they would greatly improve the character and effect of congregational music. Mr Jenkins proceeded to quote the instance afforded by Dr Parry's tune "Aberystwyth," which most admirably suited the English words Lord, remove the veil to-day," the effect of which was so clearly noticed that day.
SERIOUS TRAP ACCIDENT TO MR JENKIN THOMAS, BONVILSTONE. On Wednesday evening last, while Mr Jenkin Thomas, Liliput Farm, Bonvilstone, and some friends were returning from the Musical Festival at East Barry, along the Colcot-road, in a trap, the convey- ance was upset, and all the occupants were thrown out. The party escaped unhurt, with the exception of Mr Thomas, who, we are sorry to find, has had one of his legs broken. He was conveyed to the house of his sister (Mrs D. John, boot shop, Main-street, Barry Dock Town), where he was attended to by Dr Neale. Mr Thomas is a promising preacher in the Calvinistic Methodist connection, and is well known and respected in this neighbourhood and throughout the Vale of Glamorgan,

COLLECTOR'S STATEMENT. The Collector's account was read, showing that the balance of the last rate recoverable at the previous meeting was £ 68 2s l^d, and after making allowance for the amount since received, together with other items of credit, that sum had now been reduced to;025 16s 6lct. The remaining list of arrears was considered, amongst which wers found the names of several persons who were in receipt of parochial relief, and it was felt that the rates should not be demanded from such persons. It w;1, s consequently agreed, on the rvr*1011 ,-v'r Thomas,' seconded by Dr O Lonnell, that all cases of exemption be dealt with separately, the Chairman pointing out that a difficulty might arise if landlords claimed exemp- tion with reyra-d to their houses occupied by [>auper tenants.-In reply to Dr O'Donnell, Mr Howe said the new assessment had been passed, but no .-ippnu whatever had been lodcred pioceedings were ordered to be taken against several persons who had neglected to pay up their arrears of ratts and final notices were ordered to be rerved upon others.

It was resolved, at the suggestion of the Chair- man, that a second class season ticket for six months be obtained for the surveyor to travel over the Barry Railway between Barry and Cadoxton. WHO ARE THE HARBOUR AUTHORITIES? Some remarks were made as to who were the Barry Harbour authorities, the Clerk being of opinion that the Barry Company were not such authorities, and said the Board of Trade officials felt they possessed a jurisdiction over Barry Har- bour.—Mr Thomas believed that the Barry Com- pany were the harbour authorities. THE_ BOARD AND THE POOR RATE ASSESSMENT. Dr O'Donnell suggested that they should see to the poor rate assessment of the district, tor there Wi\s a 8rea^ deal of inequality in the present list. —Mr Howe "I know one case at Barry Dock in which a reduction was made in the assessment from £ 43 10s to JB15 10s.—Mr Thomas said the attention of the assessment committee of the Union should be drawn to the existing anomalies. -The Chairman We ought to have a special meeting to consider the matter, and a special valuation of the district should be made, so as to place the assessment on a solid foundation.—Mr Howe: Nothing can be done now for th;s half- year.—The Chairman No, but it will affect the future.-Dr O'Donnell moved that a special meet- ing of the committee be held on Monday week next for the consideration of the whole matter.- Mr Barstow seconded, and it was carried. PROPOSED STIPENDIARYSHIP FOR PENARTH AND CADOXTON. Mr Thomas remarked that the time was not far distant when it would be necessary for them to petition for the appointment of a stipendiary magistrate for Penarth and Cadoxton, as the population of the district was increasing to an extraordinary extent.—The committee agreed. THE CLERK'S ESTIMATE FOR NEXT HALF-YEAR. The Clerk submitted an estimate of expenses for next half-year, amounting to JB1841 14s 8d, some of the leading items being as follow :—Sur- veyor's salary, £ 100; clerk's salary, R30 in- spector's salary, JB50 medical officer's salary, L12 10s collector's salary, JB25 assistant surveyor's salary, JB26 establishment charges, £ 50; two lamp lighters, £ 10; limestone for roads, JB500 haulage, £ 20; two tumbler carts, B57 water cart, £ 56 widening the road at Commonside, Barry Dock Town, £ 47; road diversion at East Barry, JB147 (the latter item, however, was omitted from the estimate, and transferred to the loan account) gas lighting in the district, J691 fire extinguishing appliances, J6150 street water- ing, £ 50; Dinas Powis Highway Board, JB85 scavenging, JB364 estimated cost of forthcoming public inquiry as to the new roads, J330 legal expenses, £ 50 office rent, rates, and taxes, £ 25 • du^e pVoa^eXp¥"fl ^at a 10d ™te would pro- duce £ 2,283; and Mr Thomas felt that the rate should be at least 10d in the L, so that they might have a little money in hand, there being no loan to meet during the coming half-year, whereas there M'ould be for future half-years.—The Com- mittee agreed that a lOd rate was advisable. The remainder of the business was of minor im- portance.
PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE MEETING. A meeting of the Public Works Committee of the Local Board Mras held on Monday evening last, at the Board's Offices, Barry Dock Town, M'hen there were presentMr J. Robinson, C.E., (chairman), Messrs J- C. Meggitt, G. Thomas B Lewis, J. J. Williams, E Hughes, Dr O'DonAelh O. Jenkins, J. Barstow, J. A. Hughes (clerks Dr Neale (medical officer), J. C. Pardoe (surveyor) and G. Lightfoot (inspector). MISCELLANEOUS. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed; and a discussion took place regarding the supply of water for flushing, sanitary, and road purposes, a deputation (con- sisting of Messrs G. Thomas, E. Hughes, and the Surveyor) being subsequently appointed to wait upon the directors of the Water Company with reference to the matter of terms, &c. The Board's yard and stable in Norwich-road, Barry Dock Town, was let to Mr W. Osborne, the scavenger, at 3s 6d per week. The Surveyor (in reply to Mr Meggitt) said Messrs Shand, Mason, and Company were getting the hydrants and stand pipes ready, and they would be delivered shortly. The Surveyor reported that 38 street lamps had been duly erected at Barry Dock Town, and were ready to be lighted.—On the motion of Mr Meggitt, seconded by Mr Hughes, it was resolved that the lamps be lighted at once, Mr Lewis re- marking that they were sadly needed. It was reported by the Surveyor that the stream near the Old Court, Barry Dock Town, had been contaminated by the scavenger depositing a quantity of night soil therein, which, if repeated, would create a serious nuisance.-The Inspector of Nuisances said the scavenger M'as doing his work very unsatisiaetorily, and he had seen him fclPPing the soil into the surface drains.— The Clerk said unless the Board's officials observed f irn'8' afc C0UW fchey expect the public to ao ine scavenger had undertaken to find proper depots himself. —The Chairman Cannot we do. something to assist the scavenger in the matter of finding depots ?—After some further observations, Mr Hughes moved that the scavenger be summoned to appear before the Board on Wednesday. — Seconded by Mr Jenkins, and carried. The Surveyor stated that Messrs Seward and Thomas' piece of diverted road near the Police Station had been completed and opened to the public for general traffic, so that the old portion of parish road could now be closed. A complaint was made by the Surveyor that children were in the habit of climbino- tl10 i„ pillars in the district, and l,e £ notices be issued prohibiting the same P The Surveyor also complained thaf u built by Mr Adams at Barry Dock had h? pied before the drainage connected ihlbee" 0<?cu: been constructed.—It was therewith had proceedings be taken ae-ainst fl f .Aafc. le"al matter, the Clerk beinf inS f er in the the Board in the action mstrucfced t0 represent ro^wavCU1tnmvn°°^ P^ace relative to a certain beinjr hie-her H as ^ueret-street, Barry Dock, along the same 'and a st levelf ofrthe houses buil,fc th-it nn bniu- A strong feeling M'as expressed until th« r Plans should be passed in future Thoma« .been ProPerty formed, Mr in fiio • f opinion that it would be better, shn.ilri ln. e,sts of fche public, that a test case ar,18e therefrom rather than that the present of things should continue. THE PRIVATE IMPROVEMENTS AT BARRY DOCK TOWN. ,1 Surveyor submitted plans and estimates of the proposed private improvements in the principal streets of Barry Dock Town, the cost of which was laid at JB2,977 lls 3d. — In reply to Mr Meggitt, the Surveyor said no drainage connec- tions had been provided for in his plans and in reply to Mr Hughes, the Surveyor remarked that he had made allowance for pavements already made.—Mr Thomas said he was determined to move at the Board meeting, on Wednesday, that the work be proceeded with at once. The matter was a very important one, and did not admit of moment's delay. Notice should, therefore, be served upon the parties interested forthwith. The plans included the formation of an 18-inch inain sewer, which would be a portion of the general drainage scheme, but no connection would at the outset be made between the proposed neM* sewer and the existing temporary drains, surface water only being admitted thereto until the outfall sewer had been constructed.—The committee agreed unanimously to suppjrt Mr Thomas' intended motion, excepting only the latter portion, dealing with the early invitation for tenders for the execution of the work, a suggestion being made that this might be dealt M'ith by a committee, and that the Board should consider the question of whether the contractor of the general drainage M'ork could charge for such portion of,the sewerage M'ork as was included in this scheme, inasmuch as he had tendered for the entire undertaking. PLANS. The following plans were, amongst others, sub- mitted by the Surveyor: -Two stables in Barry Dock-road, East Barry, for Mr Morris four houses in High-street, East Barry 16 semi-de- tached villas in Kingsland-crescent, Barry Dock, the latter being desciibed as wholly preventing means of acccss from Llantwit-street to Holton- road, and it was felt that the public convenience was thus completely frustrated.—A conversation ensued, and Mr Hughes suggested that the Barry Company and the different syndicates connected with the land in that locality be written to asking them to endeavour to arrange that all the roads should have direct access to the intended new bridge at Barry Dock.—Mr Meggitt agreed, and urged that the bridge should be built wider than 30 feet. It would have to be done some day, and they might as well make it wide enough now in building it" even if the Local Board had to pay a share of the cost.—The Chairman said the ap- proaches to the bridge would be very small.—Mr Thomas concurred with Mr Meggitt that a 30 feet 1, bridge would not be sufficient, because most of the trailic at that point would go to the dock, and within twelve months a 30 feet bridge would be found to be far too small.—Mr Meggitt: I move that a committee be appointed to wait upon Mr w Edward Davies, the managing director of the company, in the matter.—The Chairman It will be useless- to have a b'ig bridge unless it has good .approaches a? M'ell.—Mr Meggitt: It would be better for us to pay part of the cost rather than have a narrow bridge. —Dr O'Donnell: That would give us a locus standi in the matter of insisting upon having proper roads thereto.-A committee (consisting of Mr Meggittr, Dr O'Donnell, and the Surveyor) was then appointed to wait upon Mr Edward Davies with the view of urging the necessity of forming a 50 feet road.-Plans con- tinued :-Six shops in Barry-road, East Barry, for Messrs Jenkins and Arnold shop in Barry Dock- road, East Barry, for Mr Rees Jones six houses in Glamorgan-terrace, East Barry, for Mr Hopkins six houses in Glamorgan-terrace, for Mr Davies; one house in Glamorgan-terrace, for Mr Martin stable at East Barry, for Mr Howell; and an oven and bakehouse in Main-street, Barry Dock Town, for the Co-operative Stores. SITE OF A SLAUGHTER HOUSE. A letter was read from Mr R. Forrest, J.P., as representative of the Wenvoe Castle Estate, to the effect that the Board's application for a site for the erection of a slaughter house near the gas works was receiving attention, and a reply thereto would be forwarded soon. THE ROADS QUESTION. It was agreed, at the suggestion of Mr Thomas, that the district roads question be deferred for the present, the attention of the Surveyor being so fully occupied just now. APPLICATION FOR INCREASE OF SALARY. A lengthy letter was read from the Surveyor (Mr J. C. Pardoe) applying for an increase of salary, and pointing out the extraordinary increase which had taken place in his duties during nearly two years which he had held the appointment, besides which he had largely assisted the en- gineer in connection with the main sewerage scheme, having prepared nearly 16 miles of sec- tions, and attended 114 meetings of the Board and committees.—The discussion which took place thereupon was in effect that Mr Pardoe M as en- titled to an increase, and Mr Thomas said the Surveyor had done a large amount of work, giving overtime for which he had made no charge what- ever.—Mr Hughes suggested that the application be deferred until some of the new streets had been formed, so that the public might see some results of the Surveyor's services.—Mr Thomas paid the Surveyor a high tribute for the efficient manner In which he had prepared the plans for the private improvements' scheme.—Mr B. Lewis pointed out that when Mr Pardoe was appointed he undertook the dual duties of surveyor and inspector of nuisances. Recently, however, a separate inspec- tor was appointed, but Mr Pardoe's salary re- mained the same, and he was permitted to retain office assistance.—Mr Thomas said he would move that the Surveyor's salary be increased to JB200, and that he be retained, if possible, for two years at least.Dr O'Donnell seconded.—Mr Jenkins agreed that the application had b^n mftd.e quil" prematurely, and Mr Hughes moved, and Mr Jenkins seconded, that the matter be deferred for six months.—The amendment was voted for by Messrs Lewis, Jenkins, and Hughes; original motion, the Chairman, Messrs Thomas, Meggitt, and O'Donnell; Mr Williams remained neutral; and Mr Barstow, not being a member, did not vote.-The motion was then agreed to, and Mr Pardoe, upon being re-admitted to the room, thanked the committee for the generosity with M'hich they had entertained his ^application, find hoped he would be able to give the same satisfac- tion in discharge of his duties in future as in the past. MR. JENKIN JONES AND A FLOCK OF TRESPASSING DUCKS. A letter was read from Mr Jenkin Jones* Wes- ton Farm, drew attention to a pond used for flush- ing purposes in a field opposite Daniel-street, Barry Dock Town, and 50 or 60 ducks were in the habit of frequenting this pond, and going to h'8 fields, so that he could not lay the damageJ9T trespass at less than £ 10. (Laughter.) — Chairman: Whose ducks are they ? laughter.)—The Surveyor I don't know.—r Thomas suggested that the Surveyor should see Mr Jones, and endeavour to come to an under- standing with him in the matter.—This was agreed to. SPECIAL MEETING. The meeting was then adjourned till two o'clock on Wednesday, at the same place, for the consi- deration of the engineer's report as to the main sewerage tenders, &c. ADJOURNED MEETING. An adjourned meeting of the Public Works Committee was held on Wednesday afternoon at the Board's Offices, Barry Dock Town nrespnt— Mr J. Robinson, C. E., (chairman), Messrl G. Thomas, P J. O'Donnell, J. J. Williams, E. (clefk^'and jT'p ,Me £ gitb> J- A- Hughes stow was also present. THE MAIN SEWERAGE CONTRACT. f TL6 reported he had received the sanction 01 the Local Government Board for the borrowing of £ 23,000 for the construction of the main sewer- age of the district, repayable in 30 years, the letter being as follows :— SANCTION TO LOAN.

Acting on behalf of the Local Government Secretary, Board under the authority of their general order dated the 26th day of May, 1877. -Mr Meggitt felt the term of 30 years in which the money was to be repaid was very small.—Mr Lewis suggested that they should write to the Local Government Board asking for an extension of that period.—Mr Thomas agreed, and urged that the Board should point out that whereas the rateable value of the district was only £22,000 when the public inquiry was held, it was now over £ 60,000.—Mr Meggitt moved that they should apply for 40 years.—A conversation ensued, and the motion was seconded by Mr Lewis and carried, Mr Meggitt being asked to co-operate with the clerk in the preparation of a letter to the Local Government Board. The report of the Board's sewerage engineer (Mr C. R. Walker, C.E.,) was read and considered at length, and, after making recommendations with regard to the contract, suggested that Air Robert Chartoris, of Leicester, be appointed aS clerk of the works.-Dr O'Donnell moved that the tender of Messrs W. R. Parker and Company, Penarth, at JB17,000, be accepted for the carrying, out of the main sewerage contract.—Mr J. Williams seconded, and it was carried unani- mously subject to the acceptance of satisfactory sureties.—On the motion of Mr Thomas, seconded by Mr Hughes, it was resolved that a letter 0 written to each firm who had tendered, thanking them for their tenders, and regretting that t same had not been accepted.—A long discuesi
