RESIDENT MAGISTRATE AND WEEKLY POLICE COURT FOR BARRY. We have it on what may be regarded as reliable authority that steps will shortly be taken (if not actually in progress) for the appointment of a resident magistrate for the Barry and Cadoxton district. We are not yet at liberty to give par- ticulars, but we are informed that the names of two or three suitable resident gentlemen will be submitted to the Lord Lieutenant (the Right Hon. Lord Windsor) for selection by the Lord Chancellor, and it is felt that the selection will be one which will give satisfaction to the general public of the district. Arrangements will also shortly be made to hold a weekly police court for the Barry Dock district.
BARRY SCHOOL BOARD AND THE RATEPAYERS. We understand that a deputation, representing a large section of the ratepayers, will attend the next meeting of the Barry District School Board in reference to the application made by the Very Rev Mgr. Williams at the last meeting to the effect that the new Roman Catholic School in Court-road bedeclared a public elementary school. The object of the deputation, we hear, will be to oppose the application.
THE NEW DOCK FOR BARRY. PURCHASE OF LAND BY THE COMPANY. LORD WIMBORNE IN SYMPATHY WITH THE MOVEMENT. It is to us a source of the greatest satisfaction to be able to announce this week, the important fact that for some time past the directors of the Barry Railway Company have been negociating with the Right Hon. Lord Wimborne for the purchase of a sufficient quantity of land on Cad- oxton Moors for the purpose of conversion into the site of a new dock, and the inhabitants of the district will, no doubt, be highly gratified to know that the negotiations have been attended with success, for the Barry Company have this week purchased a sufficient quantity of land from Lord Wimborne for the object referred to, so that whenever a con- venient opportunity occurs, the company will not be in any difficulty whatever as to obtaining land for the purpose of carrying out the proposed new dock. LORD WINDSOR. The Right Hon. Lord Windsor, of St. Fagan's Castle, and chairman of the Barry Company, will preside at the morning meeting of Cadoxton Eisteddfod on Whit-Monday. The demonstration of friendly societies, trade unionists, and others, having paraded the 0 district, headed by the 2nd Glamorgan Artillery Volunteer Brass Band from head- quarters, will meet his Lordship on Cadoxton Common about half-past ten o'clock, and the noble president, who will be accompanied by Mr R. Forrest, J.P., will be escorted by the procession, and a guard of honour composed of the Cadoxton Volunteers, to the Market Hall. Further references to the Eisfeddfod are made in our editorial columns this week.

TEMPERANCE MEETING.—On Friday evening last, at the Baptist Mission Hall, Aberthaw, a public meeting was held under the presidency of Mr D. Howell, Cwmbarry Farm. The meeting having been opened by prayer, offered by the Rev W. Daniels, Penmark, a powerful address on temperance was delivered by the Rev L.

THEFT FROM A SHIP'S CABIN.—At Cow- bridge Police Court on Tuesday last, Thomas Murray, farm labourer, 16 years cf age, living at East Aberthaw, was charged by Police-constable Evans (St. Athan's) with breaking and entering the cabin of the Union vessel, lying at Aberthaw, on the night of the 16th instant, and stealing therefrom one cap of the value of 6d, the pro- perty of Samuel Saunders, mate of the vessel. It is stated that many complaints of theft from small vessels lying at Aberthaw have been made to the police, but in no previous case has the offender been traced, and it is hoped the present prosecution will have the desii ul effect.

LLANTWIT MAJOR. DEATH OF A WELSH MISSIONER.—We regret to record the death of the Rev William Williams, who died at the house of Dr Griffiths, Mawpliti- Lay, Khassia Hills, on April 22nd, of typhoid fever, at the early age of 30 years. Mr Williams was the son of Captain Williams, New Quay, Cardiganshire, and after studying for the ministry was invited to take charge of the Calvinistic Methodist Church at Llantwit Major, where he laboured with success until September, 1887, making many friends amongst the inhabitants of the town, and endearing himself to all the mem- bers and hearers at the Tabernacle Chapel. When his friends found that he was determined to enter the missionary field, though sorry to lose I y him from Llantwit Major, they resolved to show their appreciation of him by presenting him with a valuable testimonial, which was presented to him in the Tabernacle Chapel in August, 1887. The chapel was crowded, every one present being very much moved with sorrow at parting with a kind, genial friend. Great sympathy is felt towards his aged parents in their bereavement.

CHAMBER OF TRADE FOR THE BARRY DISTRICT. PUBLIC MEETING AT BARRY DOCK. UNANIMOUS RESOLUTION TO FORM A CHAMBER. A public meeting of the leading business men of Barry and Cadoxton was held on Wednesday evening last at the Public Hall, Thompson-street, Barry Dock, for the purpose of taking into con- sideration the desirability of forming a Chamber of Trade for the district. There was a fairly representative attendance of the public, amongst those present being Mr D. T. Alexander, Bryn- eithen (who occupied the chair), Rev G. LI. Williams, County Councillor Richard Lewis, Tonypandy; Mr Tom John, Llwynpia and Mr Walter Smyth, J.P. (the two former gentlemen being members of the Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade, and the latter of the Merthyr Chamber); A. Jackson (solicitor), Dr Livingstone, F. P. Jones-Lloyd, W. H. Morgan (Lloyd's Bank), Dr Neale, G. Garnett, J. Jones (draper), E. Ray, T. Jenkins (Jenkins and Arnold), E. Gould, W. R. Hopkins, A. W. Newman, J. Baker (jeweller), J. Cruise, W. Miller, Lewis Evans, Rees Jones, J. E. Rees, M. Macgregor, Smith Jones, D. J. Greig, L. Y. Owen, T. Williams, C. Watkins, J. Millward, D. W. Thomas, D. Hole, J. Lloyd (East Barry), J. Lloyd (Cadoxton), J. M. Young, D. Davies (Barry-road), J. Savours (Rhoose), J. Beckworth, E. Jones, F. Edmunds, T. J. Rad- cliffe, J. Molineaux, S. Franklin, R. Curtis, A. Weston, T. Lewis, J. Cockram, J. R. Llewellyn, Ac. In the course of his opening remarks the Chair- man said he desired particularly to explain that the Chamber of Trade was intended to promote the welfare of the public generally of the district, and he hoped young tradespeople would not labour under a misapprehension in this respect, because it was of vital importance that perfect harmony and unity should be experienced in connection with the movement, otherwise it could not possibly be a success. (Cheers.) The Secretary pro tem (Mr A. Jackson) then explained the objects of a Chamber of Trade, which are as follow :-To promote and protect the trading and commercial interests of the neigh- bourhood to promote friendly feeling amongst the different trades; to facilitate interchange of views and opinions among the members, so as to secure unity in co-operation, and harmony of action in all matters concerning the trade of the district; and generally to unite in endeavouring to develope tne commercial importance of the neighbourhood in every available way. The Chairman then called upon Mr Tom John, of Llwynpia, the secretary of the Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade, to address the meeting. Mr John rose amid loud applause, and for nearly three-quarters of an hour be secured the rapt attention of the audience while he delivered a masterly address on the various advantages of a Chamber of Trade, detailing some of the benefits which had accrued to the public in the Rhondda through the in- strumentality of the Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade. The objects of a Chamber of Trade, he said, were to promote and protect trading, com- mercial, manufacturing, and the mining interests of the district; to consider, originate, and support legislative or other measures affecting the in- terest and the welfare of the public to collect and circulate statistical and other information to fa- cilitate interchange among the members, and to se- cure common understanding and co-operation and harmonious action in matters of local interest. Referring to the welfare of the public accruing from the action of the Chamber of Trade, Mr John referred at length to postal facilities in their various forms including, local post offices, frequent deliveries and despatches, the provision of pillar boxes, &c. He also dealt fully with advantages to be gained from the Local Board, such as providing urinals, removal of street nuisances, regular service of scavenger carts, street num- bering, road improvements, the quality and position of fire hose and reel, the erection at populous centres of the town of Bray's three- burner lamps, protection of dangerous parts, road watering, &c. Dealing with the Gas and Water Company, which he characterised as a private monopoly whose object was the augmentation of dividends, and not the con- venience of the public, this company, he said, could be approached by two means — either directly or indirectly-directly by appealing to them for additional conveniences, and indirectly by taking up the question of the promotion of an electric light company, a step which seldom failed to have the desired effect at the hands of the Gas Company. (Laughter and applause.) He strongly advocated the purchase by the local authority of the public water system, and said if this had been done in the Rhondda fifteen years ago there would not have been that great defi- ciency of water which at present was the case. Mr John dealt next with the agitation for the appoint- ment of a registrar, and the establishment of a County Court for the Rhondda Valley, and said that in connection witn the uoara ot liuarcflans, the annual abstracts once showed a sum of JB5,250, paid under the county rate heading, whereas the rate issued on the demand note (halfpenny in the E) would only realize £ 506. This matter was brought under the notice of the Board of Guardians, and the result was that the demand note had been so altered that it was now self-explanatory. Dealing with county finance, Mr John said the county ex- chequer delighted in rich harvests. The Rhondda Valley paid about JB5,000 a year to the county fund, whereas the district received in return scarcely JB400, but through the vigilance of the Chamber, special facilities in this direction had been granted by the Technical Instruction Com- mittee, so that the Valley had been placed in a fair position in this respect. The Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade had also been the means of strengthening the local police force when re- quired, and in connection with the periodical examination of weights and measures, important concessions had been granted by the authorities by the shortening of delays, and the appointment of a representative of the Chamber to be present while the examination was proceed- ing. Further, the speaker alluded to the iniquities and inequalities of the income tax system, specially mentioning Schedule D. He next referred to the concessions granted by the Great Western and Taff Vale Railway Com- panies, and explained the splendid victory of the federated chambers, through their opposition to the Bills. Referring to the appointment of magistrates in the Rhondda, Mr John said at one fame a magistrate was seldom to be seen in the district, but now resident justices were as thick as blackberries. (Laughter.) He next re- ferred to the early closing movement, the Gil- christ Lectures, and other subjects, which bad engaged the attention of the Mid-Rhondda Chamber of Trade, and con- cluded by expressing a hope that a Chamber of Trade would be formed for the Barry and Cadox- ton district. It was absolutely necessary, how- over, that the public should hang together unitedly, otherwise it was quite certain they would hang separately. In unity there was strength, and to the residents of the new district of Barry, he would say they could not keep pace with the for- ward march of the tithes unless they had a Chamber of Trade established for the district. (Loud applause.) Councillor R. Lewis, Tonypandy, was the next speaker, and he delivered a similarly effective speech, in the course of which he said the Mid- Rhondda Chamber of Trade, although it had carefully avoided being meddlesome, still had been the means of conferring a very large amount of good upon the public of the Rhondda Valley. They had not unduly interfered with the Local Boards. At the same time they found there were times when they were obliged to interfere in the public interest. (Cheers.) The Mid-Rhondda Chamber was com- posed not only of tradesmen, but of colliery pro- prietors and managers, doctors, architects, &c., so that they had been fortunate enough to com- bine the whole of the interests of the Valley into one effective organisation. (Hear, hear.) In meet- ing together periodically, the members of the Chamber would effectually remove all tendencies to bad feeling and petty jealousy between the trading community. Referring to the early closing movement, Mr Lewis said he considered tradespeople injured themselves very much in keeping their places of business open up to a late hour, and it was nothing less than a source of cruelty to the assistants, for it kept them confined indoors during the time when facilities should be afforded them of enjoying a little out-door recrea- tion and exercise. Trade should be raised to a higher level than it had been, and he considered this could be done very effectually without affecting the interests of trade in the least. In one way this could be accomplished by tradesmen keeping their shops open only during reasonable hours. The present long hours, system was a very per- nicious one, but he was glad that in the Rhondda Valley at any rate the old system was gradually dying away, and that shopkeepers had grown to recognise the advantage of closing at an early hour in the evening both summer and winter. (Cheers.) He fully agreed that the public gas and water system should be in the hands of the Local Board, and che sooner the private companies who held these sources of supply were bought up the better for the welfare of the community. (Hear, hear.) Re- ferring to the Llanarth and Morfa colliery explo- sions, Mr Lewis said that the Mid-Rhondda Cham- ber of Trade, being the only responsible body in the district, took up the matter of a local relief fund, and, he was glad to say. with the most sub- stantial results. (Cheers.) Regarding the Gil- christ lectures, the Chamber of Trade were the first to take up the movement, and, with the co- operation of the Ystradyfodwg School Board, they had been the means of having in the Rhondda Valley this excellent series of lectures, which had been well patronised. With reference to the matter of railway rates, through the instrumentality of the federated chambers, marvellous reductions had been secured, a fact which operated to the advantage of the customer as much as the tradesman. (Hear, hear.) He hoped the Chamber of Trade at Barry would have the effect of stimulating trade to a considerable degree. The objects of the Chamber were wide and far-reaching, and if they were successful in establishing a Chamber upon a good solid basis, they would assuredly find that it would prove a great boon to the locality, and certainly a great advantage to the public generally. (Cheers.) Mr Walter Smyth, J.P., Merthyr, said with united action a Chamber of Trade would prove a source of great benefit to the Barry district. Through united and determined action the Mer- thyr Chamber had been the means of securing through booking and other conveniences over the Taff Vale and Great Wes- tern Railways from Merthyr. Banking facilities had also been increased there- by, social intercourse was promoted amongst the members, and an elevating tendency was exer- cised all round. These results, however, could not be obtained without complete unity amongst the members. He strongly deprecated the intro- duction of politics-either imperial or local-into the deliberations of the Chamber, for if they did it would inevitably have the result of breaking up the institution. (Applause.) The Chairman said, after the excellent speeches they had heard from the gentlemen who had addressed the meeting, he thought they could not do better than form a Chamber of Trade for the district. If they had a chamber the streets of Barry and Cadoxton would not have been in such a deplorable condition as they had been during the past two or three winters. He also believed they should bring pressure to bear upon the Barry and Great Western Railway Companies to run through passenger trains between Barry and Cardiff. This could easily be accomplished with united action, and any assistance in his power he would gladly render to the movement for the for- mation of a Chamber of Trade for the Barry and Cadoxton district. (Applause.) Mr Smith Jones, after offering a few pithy re- marks in support of the movement, said he had great pleasure in proposing that it was expedient to form a Chamber of Trade for the Barry and Cadoxton district. Being a young community they should not try to accomplish different objects for the public welfare by individual effort, but by united effort make it possible for the fittest to survive. He was convinced that the movement which was being inaugurated that evening would form a basis to work upon for the mutual welfare of the district. (Cheers.) Mr A. W. Newman, in seconding, said there could be no doubt as to the desirability of the chamber, the advantages of which were so numerous that it would be invidious on his part to attempt to enumerate them. Mr J. Lloyd, Barry, said, as an old member of the Chamber of Trade, he regarded it as one of the necessary appliances of modern civilsation. (Cheers). Mr Jones-Lloyd, as secretary of the Ratepayers' Association, supported the resolution, and wished the Chamber every success. (Applause). The motion was then put to the meeting and carried unanimously. Mr G. Gould next proposed that this meeting form itself into a Chamber of Trade. Mr W. Miller seconded, and after an observa- tion by Mr W. R. Hopkins, the resolution was agreed to without a single dissentient. At this stage the visiting gentlemen were obliged to leave, and on the motion of Mr J. R. Llewellyn, seconded by Mr J. Milward, it was resolved that a hearty vote of thanks be accorded these gentlemen for their attendance that evening and their excellent addresses, the vote being suit- ably acknowledged by Mr Smyth, who said his friends and himself would be glad to again assist in the establishment of a Chamber at Barry. (Ap- plause.) Mr J. Lloyd then proposed that Mr D. T. Alexander be the first president of the Chamber, this being seconded by Mr D. J. Greig, and re- ceived with enthusiasm. Mr Alexander, however, remarked that he could not see his way clear to accept the presidency just at present. He would advise the promoters to get as many members as possible first, and then, when the Chamber was properly formed, if it was the unanimous feeling of the members that he should be appointed as their president, he would be very pleased to consider the invitation. (Cheers.) Mr W. Smyth suggested that in any case they should appoint a temporary secretary to act as convener of another meeting. It would be also necessary for them to appoint a council, and he would advise that the president, whoever he might be, should only occupy that position for one year, and that the vice-presidents pass up to the chair in order of seniority. (Hear, hear.) Mr Hopkins said Mr Jackson had been ap- pointed secretary pro tem. A discussion followed, and it was at length decided, on the motion of Mr Smith-Jones, seconded by Mr W. H. Morgan, that the meeting confine itself that evening to the appointment of a sub-committee for the consideration of rules, &c., the following gentlemen being accordingly appointed :—Messrs E. Hughes, A. W. Newman, J. R. Llewellyn, and G. Garnett for Cadoxton Messrs E. Gould, W. H. Morgan, W. R. Hopkins, and J. Lloyd for Barry and Messrs Smith Jones, F. P. Jones-Lloyd, T. Morgan, and J. Milward for Barry Dock. The meeting, which was of a successful and enthusiastic character, then terminated with a vote of thanks to the esteemed chairman for presiding.

Barry, of London, light, bound for Penarth, ran into the schooner Swan, of Jersey, inward bound, and laden with a cargo of potatoes. The schooner, when the accident occurred, was lying at anchor on the Car- diff Sands, and, as she was badly holed below water, sank. The crew, five in number, took to their boat, and subsequently landed at the pier- head. The F. T. Barry was uninjured, and docked the same tide at Penarth. Mr Lang, of Collingdon- road, raised the schooner during the day, and placed her in the Glamorganshire Canal to dis- charge cargo for further survey. THE TENNIS CLUB.—The members of the Pen- arth Club are among the favoured devotees of the sport of tennis. Many experienced players have expressed the opinion that this club has the most beautifully situated courts of any in the kingdom. Laid out on the hillside which slopes down to the beach a magnificent view of the channel is presented, and this, taken in conjunc- tion with the many picturesque villa residences on either side, presents a picture charming in the ex- tieme. The club has been in existence since 1885, when a suggestion having been made that a club should be formed, Mr W. G. Dalziel, who may be rightly termed its founder, headed the movement with his usual energy and spirit, and Lord Windsor (now the President of. the Club), who is the owner of the freehold, generously responded by sustain- ing the whole of the expenditure in the laying out of the courts, ten in number, including three of asphalte and seven of grass, and also in erecting the very handsome pavilion, the cost altogether amounting to upwards of £1,200. His lordship, it may be mentioned, is very much devoted to the game, and is a practised player of the old game of tennis, being the possessor of one of the very few existing courts at first introduced so far back as the thirteenth century. The holding of the national tournament will this year take place on the Penarth grounds, the meeting having been arranged to take place on the 4th, 6th, 7th, and 8th of June next. The Penarth Club plays very few matches, except with clubs outside the dis- trict, owing to the fact that many of its principal players are also members of other local clubs. The present hon. sec. of the club is Mr F. P. Adey, a gentleman well known in tennis circles, and who is also a prominent member of the Penarth Boating Club.
