THE VALE OF GLAMORGAN RAILWAY. # EXTRAORDINARY RUSH FOR SHARE CAPITAL. SUBSTANTIAL PREMIUM ALREADY OFFERED. CONSIDERABLE satisfaction has been felt this week in the Barry district at the fact that the prospectus of the Vale of Glamorgan Railway Company has been issued, the list opening on Tuesday and closing on Thursday, the number of applications, it is understood, far exceeding the amount of authorised capital, namely, £360,000, distributed over 36,000 shares of £10 each, a third of which, re- presenting £ 120,000, has been applied for by the directors, who comprise Mr Archi- bald Hood, Cardiff, deputy-chairman of the Barry Railway Company, and managing- director of the Glamorgan Coal Company (chairman); Mr Edward Davies, Llandinam, managing-director of the Barry Railway Com- pany, and chairman of the Ocean Coal Company (deputy-chairman) and the follow- ing directors of the Barry Railway Company —Messrs John Cory, Cardiff; Robert Forrest, St. Fagan's; T. R. Thompson, Cardiff; and F. L. Davis, Ferndale; together with Mr E. L. Evan-Thomas, The Gnoll, Neath, one of the directors of North's Navigation Colliery Company. The bankers, as announced in our last issue, are the Metropolitan Bank of I England and Wales, Barry Docks branch; Mr J. Wolfe-Barry, C.B., M.C.Inst.C.E., London, being the consulting engineer; and Messrs Forster Brown and Rees, Cardiff, and J. W. Szlumper, C.E., London, the engineers; with Messrs Downing and Handcock, Cardiff, as solicitors and Mr W. Mein, Barry Docks, secretary. As our readers are already fully aware, the proposed Vale of Glamorgan Rail- way will run from Bridgend to Barry Docks, providing a new and more direct access to the sea-board from the Llynvi, Garw, and Ogmore coal districts. The line will be worked in perpetuity by the Barry Railway Company for 60 per cent. of the gross receipts, the shareholders of the new company to be guaranteed a dividend of four per cent. upon the ordinary capital. The Company have entered into contracts, mostly based upon output, with owners of collieries guaranteeing j to the Vale of Glamorgan Railway a mineral traffic, which, together with the arrangement entered into with the Barry Company, in the opinion of the directors make the present issue of capital a most desirable investment. In ¡ addition to the export mineral traffic, the import traffic in pitwood, iron ore, and general merchandise in connection with the collieries and ironworks is expected to be very con- siderable. The line, which is twenty miles in length, and extends from the town of Bridgend to Barry, passes through a rich agricultural district, and now that the Barry Company exercises its running powers into Cardiff, will become the main line between Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan. The j local traffic also promises to be important. Means of communication by railway between Cardiff, Barry, and the Vale of Glamorgan are greatly needed, and the directors feel confident that a considerable passenger traffic will be carried on the railway of the Company. The coalfield with which the Vale of Glamorgan Railway communicates is reported by Mr Forster Brown to- Contain upwards of 1,500 million tons of coal, and, therefore, more coal than the Rhondda Valley district, out of which, at the present time, between 7,000,000 and 8,000,000 tons of coal are produced annually, chiefly for export. The district, being further away from a good port, has not as yet been developed to the same extent as the Rhondda Valley district, and until within the last few years the upper bituminous seams of this district were chiefly worked for ironworks and local purposes. Latterly, however, the steam coals, which lie deeper, have begun to be de. veloped, and the outputs last year were about 2,000 tons, showing an increase in output of over 60 per cent. in the last seven years, whilst further large developments are in progress, comprising two new pits in die Afan Valley, three new steam coal openings upon North's Navigation property, approaching completion, and a new steam coal colliery at Garth, and, when the new develop- ments which are now in progress are completed, the output of steam coal will be increased by up- wards of three-fourths of a million tons per annum, and practically the whole of this increase will require to be exported. After a further period of years the output will probably be in- creased by about another two millions a year, bringing up the ultimate approximate estimated output to about five million tons per annum. The Prospectus Association states that the importance of Barry as a place of shipment for Welsh coal has been fully established by the results of the first five years of the Barry Railway Company's working, coal being now shipped at the rate of between 4 £ and five million tons per annum. Barry Dock is 73 acres in extent, with deep water, and its existing value will shortly be much enhanced by the deep water lock which has been con- structed and is rapidly approaching com- pletion. This lock will enable vessels to enter and leave the dock at all states of tide, and will thus afford facilities for despatch r. which are not possessed by any other dock in the Bristol Channel. The Barry Railway Company are about entering into a contract for the construction of a new dock, and it is believed, with the additional accommodation and facilities afforded, the trade will be largely increased. The directors are advised that the line, which presents no engineering difficulties, can be completed and opened for traffic in about two years. It is gratifying to add that I the whole of the available capital was ap- plied for at the bankers of the company before noon on Tuesday, and it is reported that in some instances a premium has been offered upon the shares at par value. Up to Thursday afternoon the applications, it is stated, amounted to two-fold the available II capital.
BUFFALO LIFEBOAT FOR BARRY. WE are pleased to be able to announce that there is some probability of the early develop- ment of a movement for providing and en- dowing another lifeboat under the auspices of the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes. The Order has already provided the country with one public lifeboat, and funds are being raised for the construction of another, and there is a strong feeling in official circles that, recognising the fact that Barry has provided the largest quota of membership of the Order in the country, and Barry Docks having sup- plied the first institute ever established in connection therewith, Barry enjoys a pre- eminent claim for the establishment of the proposed second lifeboat. The claims of Barry are accentuated by the fact that most of the members of the local institute are either seafaring men, or are employed in con- nection with the docks, and that there is at present no lifeboat along the coast of the Bristol Channel between Penarth and Porth- cawl. There seems but very small probability of the John Wesley Lifeboat becoming an actual fact, so that we welcome the steps now being taken by the benevolent institution of Buffaloism throughout the country to aid the cause of humanity in this plausible direction. J
COUNTY COUNCIL AND THE RE-ARRANGEMENT OF SULLY PARISH. Too great an emphasis cannot be placed upon the importance of the subject raised by the clerk to the Barry and Cadoxton, Local Board at the last meeting of the Public Works Committee. We do not wish to charge the Glamorgan County Council with being guilty of jobbery in the least, although the circumstances in connection with the late public inquiry with regard to the re-arrange- ment of Sully parish seem very much akin thereto. A certain scheme was drafted with ) the view of annexing to the parish of Barry a I portion of the parish of Sully, to wit, Barry Island, and the annexation of another portion of the same parish, forming part of the Moors, to Cadoxton parish. To secure the necessary sanction, and to give effect to this re-arrangement, a public inquiry was called under the provisions of the Local Government Act, the notice convening the same containing an explicit definition of the Council's proposals. In the meantime, how- ever, for some reason or other, a new scheme was formulated, providing for the inclusion in the parish of Cadoxton of the whole of the parish of Sully proposed to be annexed. Of this no notice whatever was given to I the public, neither was any explanation offered at the inquiry to the gentlemen representing the different public bodies of the Barry district by the commissioner (Mr J. Blandy Jenkins, J.P.) who conducted the proceedings. As Mr Hughes very significantly told the Public Works Committee, the inquiry, therefore, was a mere farce, and was conducted on lines which the Local Govern- ment Board would naturally resent as de- cidedly irregular, and until a proper explana- tion of the circumstances is given the public have a right to question the straightforward- ness atid integrity of the County Council in the matter. The public will also concur with the suggestion of Mr Hughes that, whenever County Council hold an inquiry in future, it should be held in the district directly interested therein, and not, as in the present case, at the Cardiff Workhouse, at the unreasonably early hour of half-past nine in the morning.

He watched the place from 7.30 tO 7.45, in company with Police-constable Griffith Williams, and saw the defendants go to the wirCt' but finding nothing in them they then went towards the seashore.
