I Cardiff Exhibition. I Meeting of the Executive Council. A meeting of the Exhibition Executive Council was held yesterday in Shakespeare's House, presided over by Mr S. A. Brain (vice- chairman). Lord Windsor was present during a part of the prooe.>din and was made the recipient of a gold badge as a memento of the Exhibition. Mr Brain presented the gift on behalf of the Executive Council, and Lord Windsor returned thanks. It was decided to ask the Taff Vale Railway Company to run a train from Oardiff to Penarth at 9.45 p.m., and also to ask that monthly tickets should be issued on the same basis as season tickets. Mr T. H. RICKBS said there was an impression abroad that the Exhibition could not be visited under a cost of 5s per head. The sooner this idea was dispelled the better. Something ought to be done to let the peopip know that they could see the whole of the Exhibition, the illuminated gardens, the Santiago spectacle, and bear the banda for the one shilling which they paid on admission. It was quite optional whether the visitors went into the various side shows. The Chairman suggested that the Press should give publicity to the timely state- ment of Mr Riches. An application from the Rev. Canon Thompson to allow hib school children to attend the Exhibi- tion in three batches of 400 each at 3d per bead was acceded to, Mr R. P. Culley undertaking, on behalf of the concessionaires, to make a reduction, in the charges to the side shows for school children. The Council agreed to consider applica. tions from other local schools. I A Notable Visitor. I During Monday, Admiral and Mrs Fremantle I visited the Exhibition, and expressed their delight with what they saw. I The Presentation Key. On Monday evening the members of the Free Library Committee met at the Central Library, under the presidency of Mr E. W, Shackell. There was a good attendance. The meeting was convened to consider designs of tenders for the gold key to be presented to H.R H. the Prince of Wales, on the occasion of the opening of the new Library building. Fourteen firms sent designs, which were sub- mitted to the inspection of the committee. Ultimately design No. 4, which proved to be that of Messrs Spiridion and Son, Duke-street, Cardiff, was selected. I Description of Key. In the successful design the head of the key is formed by the arms, supporters, motto, crests, etc., of the Prince of Wales, the plumes appear- ing immediately underneath with the Tudor rose, the common seal of the town on each side, the whole resting on the shaft of the key, which is composed of one of the town maces, attached to which is the "Cardiff arms" supported by the emblematical "leek," jewelled with finesb emeralds. Underneath on an entwined scroll is the motto of the Cardiff Free Library, Ni Bydd Doeth na Ddarlleno." The wards of the key are formed of the letetrs A. E. the monogram of H.R.H. the Prince of Wales, and are set with pearls and turquoises. The shield for inscrip- tion will be provided on reverse of the Prince of Wales's arms,which will be supported by richly enamelled Welsh red dragons. On the reverse of Cardiff arms will apjiear the: head of Minerva, goddess of learning. The whole ot the work will be of the highest class in artistio finish, and the enamels anti gems of the best quality. The gold will be 18 carat, and will weigh about three ounces, the total cost, including red morocco case with white satin lining, being 230.
