THE VAGRANT AND UNEMPLOYABLE. GENERAL BOOTH, the venerable head of the Salvation Army, has forwarded to us a copy of a most interesting and important handbook which he has just issued, con- veying a proposal for the extension of the Land and Industrial Colony System, whereby vagrants may be detained under suitable conditions and compelled to work. General Booth is of opinion, with the late Cardinal Manning, that "the worthless are what they are, because the Society of to-day has wrecked them." The General believes, and very rightly so, that some definite provision should be made by the community for dealing effectively with that class of vagrant known as "the tramp." We agree with the illustrious head of the great redemp- tive movement, that most of the efforts made to check the existing evil are rendered abortive by the fact that there is no method of keeping the tramp in one place and compelling him to work. If an effective system of State control were established under reasonable and bene- volent conditions; he believes that a considerable proportion of these wander- ing vagrants would reform, and become useful and profitable members of the community. Municipal and Poor Law authorities should be empowered to establish Labour Colonies for Vagrants, the cost of maintaining such Colonies to be provided by a contribution from the Treasury and from the local rates. No such proposal, however, would be effective unless attended by the influences of kindness and sympathy as well as the methods of religion. The proposal of General Booth is accompanied by a report by Colonel Lamb, late governor of the Salvation Army Land and Industrial Colony at Essex, with contri- butions on the subject by Mr Bramwell Booth and others. Colonel Lamb believes that if Labour Colonies were established throughout the country, the inefficients would be absorbed, and the way cleared for closing in on the "won't works." The underlying and governing principle of these Colonies should be the encourage- ment of the willing, industrious, and well-behaved, and the compulsion of the lazy and indifferent. Mr Bramwell Booth gives his opinion in pointed, but none too pointed, terms. "The workless man," he says, is the whole social problem in the concrete. He is the- coming pauper; he is the potential criminal he is the would-be suicide. And more than this, he is the scion of a miserable house he and his children after him, even to the third and fourth generation, will, under existing condi- tions, eat the bread which has been earned by the sweat of somebody else's brow, and he will die twenty years before he ought to die, leaving behind him a legacy of misery and shame in the children who will follow his example, and do their part to impoverish the world they might have done some- thing to enrich and improve." The little book which General Booth has issued deals with a complex and difficult subject in a comprehensive and practical manner, and the proposal which he sets forward should receive the careful and serious attention of the local authorities-Poor Law Guardians in particular—throughout the country, thus focussing public opinion upon a subject which so urgently calls for solution, and thus again bring the whole question seriously and pointedly before the notice of Parliament-
LOCAL AND GENERAL NOTES. At the conclusion of the hearing of the THE POLICE Barry Dock Unionist AND THE BARRY DOCK Working Men's Club CLUB CASE. case on Tuesday last, the presiding magistrate (Mr T. R. Thompson), complimented the police upon the excellent manner in which they had prepared the case for the prosecution. Such remarks of commend- ation were never more fully warranted, and we are sure even those who are wont to criticise the police cannot but admire the manner in which the case had been worked up. This compli- ment is specially applicable to Sergeant R. H. Thomas (203), who, for a period of nearly three months after the raid, with the aid of P.C. South, made a careful scrutiny of the huge pile of books and documents which were seized on the day of the raid. One can plainly see that the work behind the scenes was by no means small, and the preciseness and intelli- gence displayed by Sergeant Thomas in the witness box is worthy of approval and congratulation.
BARRY COUNCILLORS AND A LOCAL THEATRE. NEED OF A GOOD PERMANENT BUILDING. A special meeting of the Barry Urban District Council was held on Friday evening last, when there were present — Mr J. C. Meggitb, J.P. (chairman), Mr J. A. Manaton (vice-chairman), Rev B. Evans, Rev T. Pandy John, Dr P. J. O'Donnell, Messrs James Jones, D. Lloyd, S. R. Jones, D. Morgan, 0. McCann, W. R Lee, T. Davies, John Williams, J. E. Levers, and J. D. Watson. APPLICATION FOR THEATRE LICENSE. A recommendation was made by the Licensing Committee that the application of Mr Herbert Johnson, of the Prince of Wales Theatre, Tredegar, for a license for the performance of stage plays in a portable theatre, proposed to be erected on land opposite or near the Gas and Water Offices be granted. Mr Morgan enquired whether they had any guarantee as to the form of structure and the kind of plays which would be given. He thought it had been the custom to reject such applications in the past. The Chairman felt very strongly that it was not wise to grant such applications. For a number of years the local authority had set its face against the erection of buildings of this kind in the town, and he would strongly urge the Council to reject the application. These people would come to the town, and leave after taking hundreds of pounds, without being properly rated, There were per- manent buildings both at Cadoxton and Barry which were rated for poor and district rate purposes, and to allow the recommendation of the Committee to pass was not, in his opinion, a mark of progress, but rather a retrograde step. Such buildings were not healthy, and in case of fire they were difficult and dangerous to cope with. To allow such buildings to be put up would not be worthy of a self-respecting town. Rev T. Pandy John was thankful that the Chairman had stated these objections. To accept such a building would not, he believed, improve the morals of the town, and he strongly opposed the application. There was no enthusiasm in the decision of the Committee, remarked the Rev B. Evans. The applicant presented a number of testimonials trom clergymen and others that the plays were of a moral character, and he thought it was because of these testimonials that the majority of the Committee agreed to the recommendation. Dr O'Donnell heartily supported the recom- mendation, remarking that the applicant had given a good deal to charity, and something was greatly needed in this district to keep sailors and others from the hotel bars and going to Cardiff to spend their money in various ways. He did not believe in these goody-goody principles against attending a theatre. All the sanitary require- ments would be complied with, and the structure would be such that it could be emptied in a few minutes. If they could not have a good per- manent theatre in the centre of the town, which was very desirable, they should provide other places of amusement for the people. Every member of the Licensing Committee, with the exception of the Rev B. Evans, the chairman, voted for the recommendation. Mr W. R. Lee said the summer was coming and doctors told them that fresh air was the best thing possible. He never frequented these places at home or abroad, and he was accordingly free to vote as he thought proper. Preference should be given, he thought, to the permanent buildings at Barry and Cadoxton. At the same time, the farthest they kept from such places, he thought the better. & Mr McCann spoke as to the need of some innocent and rational entertainment in the town. Mr Manaton said three or four years ago a similar application was made from Neath or Bridgend, and was refused. When they had a theatre it should be a permanent one. On being put to the vote, only Dr O'Donnell and Mr McCann voted for the recommendation, the other members named, with the exception of Messrs Lloyd and Watson, who entered later being against. Private business was then entered UPON*
