BARRY DISTRICT COUNCIL BOYCOTT OF THE VOLUNTARY HOSPITAL. To the Editor of the BARRY DOCK NEWS." SIR,-On the 17th of May, 1900, an employee of the Barry Urban District Council fell from the roof of the Gas Works, where he was working and fractured his skull, &c. Their own rate-supported hospital was full, and he was refused admission. The man in an unconscious condition, and unable to bear the journey into Cardiff, was taken to the Voluntary Hospital, which was also full, but in order to do what it could for such an urgent case, a patient convalescing was removed from one of the wards to the dining room, and his bed made up fresh for the injured man. When the Voluntary Hospital appealed to the Council for space on the sands for a few refreshment stalls in aid of its funds the Council refused the permission, which would have cost them neither trouble nor money. —Yours, &c., A RATEPAYER.
