ANNUAL OUTING OF MESSRS. C. H. BAILEY'S EMPLOYEES. On Saturday last the employees of Messrs C. H. Bailey and Son, of the Tyne Engineering Works, Barry Docks, had their annual outing to Minehead, when a company numbering about 150, including several ladies, proceeded by boat from Penarth to Minehead. The day was a most delightful one, and the trip to and fro was thoroughly enjoyed. Dinner was served at the Pier Hotel, when the chair was occupied by Mr D. Roberts, superinten- dent engineer, Barry Docks, and he was supported by Messrs A. Clissett, T. R. Williams, W. Price, P. A. Lawson. H. Osborn, etc. After dinner a brief toast list was gone through. The Chairman proposed The King and Royal Family," which was loyally received. The toast of the day, that of Mr C. H. Bailey, was entrusted to Mr W. Price, who said the name of Mr Bailey was world-wide known to-day. All the latest machinery had been fixed at their works, both at Barry and Newport, for carrying out all branches of ship-repairing. The rapid growth of the firm was due to the devotion and energy of its principal and staff.— -The toast was received with musical honours, and in responding Mr H. Saunderson read a telegram which had been received from Mr Bailey, expressing a hope that all would enjoy themselves. (Cheers).—The Chairman gave The Staff," nnd said he had always found them an excellent lot from the manager down to the smallest boy in the works.—Mr 'f.- Williams suitably responded.— The Ladies was proposed, and the toast was acknowledged by Mr A, Clissett.—The health of the Chairman was also heartily drank. A telegram regretting his inability to attend was also received from Mr W. Graham, the respected manager of the firm.-After dinner the party were driven to Porlock and Pcrlock Weir, where a most enjoyable afternoon was spent, the return journey being entered upon about eight o'clock, and Barry was reached about 9.30, every- one being highly delighted with the trip. We should add that the secretarial arrangements of the outing were carried out by Mr P. A. Lawson, with a committee consisting of Messrs T, Williams, A. Clissett, and W. Price.
