I RAILWAY SERVANTS' PARADES. Service at St. John's, Cardiff. Ib is only fitting that when such a deserving body of men as railway servants mr.ke an effort to augment the funds of their benevolent institutions that the public should second them with hearty support. This supporb was received in a marked oegree on Sunday afternoon by the Great Weeiern Railway servants, whose local committee arrnng-id church parade, the Vicar (Canon Thomi«,:ni having with his usual kindliness promised to hoio a special service at St, John's Church. 1" railway servants mustered in lartre numbers .u ■ Great Western Station, the fact thar. i-Li necessity for extra duty alone preventing a reeok.i attendance. The men formed into a and walked to the church, headed by the Station Band (under the leadership of Mr Loman). There were in the procession, which was preceded by a detachment of mounted police and a jxisse of constables on foot, the following geutlenien The Deputy Mayor (Alderman J. W. Jacobs) (the Mayor being unavoidably absent), Councillors Gerhold, R. Husrhes, Crossman, J. iuckar. Henry White, R. Johnstone, and J. Jenkins. Mr F. C. Gooch, J.P., who succeeds Sir Morgan Morgan as president of the Local Committee of the Great Western Railway Widows' and Orphans' Benevolent Fond Mr W. Mackenzie (chief constable), Mr H. Richard (Cardiff stationnoister and chairman of the Local Committee), Mr D. T. Gregory (one of the inde- fatigable lion, sees.), Chief Inspector Ward (the station staff), Mr Adye (divisional superintendent), Mr A. H. Aldridge (district goods manager), Mr Bradshaw (assistant goods manager), Mr Hart, Mr J. P. Burt (Bute Docks Company), and otiterm, T .(,a ivere (, fi others, There were officials and representatives of the Tuff Vale, Rnymney, aud Barry Railways in the procession, s well as mên from the Bute Docks Company. There was a large muster of the station staff, which was under the manage- ment of Mr Richards. The chairman of the Local Committee has received numerous sums III aid of the funds, and he put in the collection-bag cheques from the following gentlemen :—Mr F. C. Cory, Bl; AldPf. man David Jones, El Is; Sir E, Hill, M.P., Ll Is; General Lee, £1 Is Mr R. P. Culley, £1 h; and Mr J. M. Maclean, M.P., £ 2. — The Vicar, in preachmg on true religion, made an etoqu?nt appeal oil bi-, h .,t l f M. P., i-,i I of the benevolent fund, and, "peaking of brotherliness, said if it were only to show that the working men without exception were banded together in one heart and aim to relieve their necessities, he believed ttie, day of trade disputes would be at an end. They would be so strong in the favour of their feilow-mnn, and they would win such golden opinions from the best placed in the land, they would earn for themselves such an amount of real affection and true respect that they would be a power far greater than they had any conception of to-day, and he believed the day of trade dtsputes and embitter- ment between class and class wouid speedily •ome to an end. After th" service the men returned to't.ll(\ Great Western Station, headed by the band. Although there is a sum of ovor £ 7,000 required above and beyond the men's annual contributions to keep 'he fund in a working order, it by no liiPiMix follows that the men do not hel p them- selves. Oae instance is enongu to show that they do. The Cardiff Station staff have formed a hand, in which all join without distinction. It includes members of the staff from the deputy station master (Mr Osborne) down to the office boy, and they are invaluable as a means of raising money for the funds. A word of praise is certainly due I toithem or their unstinted labours. Sunday Demonstration at Ebhw Vale, The Lobw Vale branch of the Amalgamated Society of Rulway SM-vants organised a demon- stration on Sunday in aid of the Orphan Fund in connection with their society. The members congregated on the Market-square, and were joined by sections of the Colliers' Association and the Steel and Ironworkers' Association, together with the ministers of the town and several of the leading tradesmen. The procession was led by the J5.L bw ;ile Town Band, under the leadership of Bandmaster Geo. Tern pieman, after which was carried the beautiful banner of the society (No. 1 Liverpool Branch), followed by the members of thcA.S.RS. from Ebbw Vale, Brynmawr, Blaina, Nantyglo, Aberbillery, Crumliu, Abeibeeg, iNewbridge, &c,, and tho section representative of the colliers find Inn and Steel Workers' Association. i At tht- Central Public H>.II a service was con- ducted. The spacious building was crowded, fully 2500 being pteseut. The Rev. EV:l BBynon cundllcted the serv ice, and a powerful sermon was preached by tiie Rev. Thomas Richards (Libanus, Ebbw Vale). As a result of the appeal made by Mr Richards 216 was col- lected in the hali.
