ORGANISATION OF BARRY 1 LABOURERS. MR. BEN TILLETT ON THE BENE- FITS OF THE DuCKERS' UNION. The two branches at Barry have, during the past two months, found it expedient to secede from the National Amalgamated Labourers' Union, but Mr Harry Rogers, the secretary, has succeeded ia re-organising the men with a view to their becom- ing affiliated to some other society. For this purpose a mass meeting of the men was held at St. Mary's Hall, Barry Docks, on Thursday evening, the 1st instant, when the claims of the Dockers and General Workers' Union were advanced. Councillor J. H. Jose presided over a crowded attendance. The method of working and the benefits of the Union were explained by Mr James Wignall, of Swansea, one of the organisers, and Mr G. H. -Lock, district delegate, Cardiff, the former stating that if the two branches at Barry were received into the Dockers' Union, it was pro- posed to appoint Mr Harry Rogers as district delegate, and elect a local secretary to fill the vacancy that would thus be created. The chief speaker during the evening was Mr Ben Tillett, of London, the general secretary of the Dockers and General Workers' Union, who was accorded a very hearty reception. Mr Tillett has been seriously indisposed for the last eight months, but he does not appear to have lost any of his former energy and enthusiasm for industrial organisation. When a young man, Mr Tillett said, the British Press and many of the preachers in the pulpit had been pleased to designate him as a dangerous agitator. His worst reception had been at Swansea, but he prided himself upon the fact that during the last seventeen years he had been able to accomplish good and useful work. (Applause.) His union had been the directjmeans of obtaining many of the trades union advantages of recent years, and the coaltrimmers of South Wales were responsible tu the society the repre- sentedifor their shortened Saturdayiand'increased rate of wages. The Union started with a credit balance at the bank of 7s 6d—(laughter)—but to- day they possessed 420,000, with a membership of 100,000. He had become this so-called dangerous agitator as the result of reading of the terrible struggles of the workers of past generations, when better men than himself had run such risks, and endured suffering and privations in order that their fellows might benefit in time to come. He looked back upon his work with greater pride than a king or emperor surveying his vast domains, because he had seen humanity stirred and moved, and when the leaders of to-day were dead and buried, other men, young in brain, heart, and soul, would spring up to take their places. A great ichange had passed over the workers of this country during recent years. The Dockers' Union had striven to play its part in the evolution and change that was constantly taking place, and he was glad to see the mighty organisation of miners at last waking up to their responsibilities and duties. The workers craved not for philanthropy and sympathy, but asked for simple justice, and the right to live under the best possible conditions. (Cheers.) No man had ever discovered any kind of labour but what yielded profit to the employer, and yet labour had a soul, a body, brains, hom.es, and wives and families and if labour only valued itself in all its censured being, they, as workers, would never be content to grovel in the mire, and bow to the dictates of capitalists, (Cheers.) Unions should be national rather than local. There was no"set of employers to whom he had failed to gain access, with perhaps the exception of Sir William Thomas Lewis, of Cardiff, and this gentleman would never see him. (Laughter.) On one occasion, however, he was represented by two lawyers, who informed him (Mr Tillett) that he would be put in gaol. They were living in the days when brains were more valuable than money. Their hope and aim was a world movement, and a trades union was the best investment they could have. He was happy to be associated with principles which had been formed link by link with past 'generations of humanity, who were proud to do their duty in their day, who would have scorned to have stooped to an act of cowardice or injustice, and who had faced the soldiers' guns, the gallows, and death rather than surrender the cause they had so much at heart. (Applause.) Several questions were afterwards asked, in reply to which Mr Wignall said they were prepared to take over the local branches as a going con- cern, every man's membership to date from the time he joined the local association. They would pay Mr Rogers the recognised Trade Union wages and all district expenses. A district office would be established, and he suggested that they, as a body of men, should form themselves into a por- tion of the district, so that they would have absolute control over their own work, subject to the rules of the Executive Council, and they would be allowed to elect one man from themselves upon the executive. No entrance fee would be required, but after the cost of the establishment of the dis- trict office, any surplus remaining of their funds would be handed over to Lhe general fund. The moment the transfer took place the Union he represented took charge of the compensation cases, and looked after the interests of the tneu just as if they were their members when the accidents happened. A cordial vote of thanks was passed to the speakers and chairman at the close, on the pro- position of Mr E. Curtis, seconded by Mr W. Reeves. THE NATIONAL AMALGAMATED UNION OF LABOUR. Another mass meeting was held under the same auspices and at the same plaee on Monday evening, when Mr J. N. Bell (general secretary), Newcastle, ,and Mr Owen Wade (district delegate). Shields, delivered addresses on the claims of the National Amalgamated Union of Labour. Councillor J. H. Jose again presided, and intimated that the mem- bership of the local branches now reached 574. Mr Owen Wade, who spoke first, referred chiefly to the Union's large district on the north-east coast, where there were twenty-two graving docks alone, and a large number of small repairing shops. The platers' helpers, chippers, painters, fitters' labourers, and general labourers all belonged to this Union, and Mr Wade briefly detailed the working advantages and increased rates of wages that had been obtained for these men. Mr J. N. Bell said he had nothing to complain of against Mr Besi Tillett's society (the Dockers' Union), for they had always been on the friendliest terms possible. (Hear, hear.) Unfor- tunately there were some men who fell away from trades unionism, but it was gratifying to observe that the large majority stood by their union, and he was there that evening to invite them to join a thoroughly stable society, that especially catered for the class of men belonging to the Barry branches. His union paid funeral, accident, lock- out, and victimisation benefits, and was, in addi- tion, affiliated to the General Federation of Trades Unions. The weekly contribution was 3d, but most branches had a separate fund of their own, to which the members contributed one-halfpenny per week. Mr Harry Rogers, the local secretary, had rightly refused to disclose to him the terms offered by the Dockers' Union, but the union he (Mr Bell) represented were prepared to receive the Barry branches into benefit in three months clear of entrance fees. Naturally they would want Mr Rogers to continue to act as their official, but unless Cardiff became affiliated as well, and the membership raised to at least 1,500, he was afraid this would be impracticable. He understood that of late the employers at Barry had got something of the upper hand, and he would frankly tell those present that it would be no easy matter for them to regain what they had lost. Still he had no doubt but that his union would be prepared to negotiate with the firms. (Applause.) Mr Harry Rogers issued instructions to the men with respect to the ballot, which is taking place this week, and said that as soon as Barry became affiliated, Cardiff and Penarth would follow. (Applause). A vote of thanks to the Chairman concluded the meeting.
BARRY FINANCE COMMITTEE. COST OF RATJS COLLECTION. RATEPAYERS' ASSOCIATION CRITICISED. Mr O. McCann (chairman) presided at the monthly meeting of the Finance Committee of Barry District Council on Friday evening last, the members present in addition being Messrs J. A. Manaton, J.P., James Jones, J. Milward, J. E. Levers, and W. J. Williams. At the suggestion of Mr Milward, it was decided to recommend the Council to advise their employees to join some friendly society, Mr C. B. Brown, accountant, reported that after paying all accounts for the month there was a balance of nearly £ 10.000 in hand. A letter was read from Mr G. Speke, the secretary of the Barry Ratepayers' Association, complaining that the cost of collecting the gas rate at Barry was very high compared with the collection of electricity charges at Newport.- Several members considered the comparison to be an unfair one, and the Chairman said at Newport the cost of collection was 20s, whilst at Barry it was only 19s lOd.—Mr Milward It is queer that these people spring up on the eve of an election. I suppose they want the members to go to the Regent Hall Academy and empty themselves.—Mr James Jones moved that they proceed to the next business.—Mr Manaton: If we discuss, this the Ratepayers' Association will have achieved their end.-Mr Williams What is it 2-mr Manaton: They want to be noticed. There are only a few of them.—Mr Williams As this matter appeared prominently in the Barry Dock News I think we should reply to it.—Mr Manaton Go and meet them in the Regent Hall, Mr Williams. I remember going once, and they blest mE. (Laughter.) I move that Mr Williams and the Chairman meet them at the Regent Hall.—Mr Williams: I have never been there. Mr Manaton Oh, so you have not had an academic training. (Laughter.)—Mr Williams They are ratepayers, and are entitled to a reply.—Mr T. W. Lewis (superintendent collector) said Barry could not be compared with Newport in this matter. It should also be considered that 4,000 slots had to be collected twice a quarter at Barry.—Mr Manaton Every member of the Council is satisfied that we are doing right; we are not keeping anything back. Several motions were proposed—that a representative of the Association be invited before the Committee, that the letter be replied to, and that they be directed to the minutes in the Public Library-but each was defeated.—Mr Manaton suggested that Mr Stapleton and Mr Speke should endeavour to get on the Council and try their hands, A Voice: Yes, in the Park Ward. (Laughter.)—Mr Manaton Mr Speke spoke very feebly in High-street Ward. (Renewed laughter.) -No decision was arrived at. This was the principal business.
CHILL CAUSES SKIN DISEASE. YOUNG WIFE'S TROUBLE COM- MUNICATED TO BABY-ZAM-BUK CURES BOTH. Blood-chills are often responsible for the out- break of irritating rashes or feverish eruptions, which may develope into a chronic skin disease. Mrs Joyce, of Alfred Street, Westbury (Wiltshire), has proved the reliability of Zam-Buk in such cases. Mrs Joyce writes About fifteen months ago a rash appeared all over my body. It seemed to be under the skin, and the irritation was almost unbearable. In some places it was like little watery pimples, which broke. I went to the doctor, and he told me it was due to a chill in the blood. I had two or three bottles of medicine, but it did not do me much good. I tried several boxes of ordinary ointment, which I got at the chemist's. It eased the irritation a little, but the rash did not get any better. My baby was born in June, and when she was six weeks old a similar rash broke out all over her. I took her to the doctor, and had several bottles of medicine, but it did not get better. The doctor told me there was nothing to be alarmed about. I kept the places dry by powdering on his iustructions, and for a few days she seemed a little better, but then it all came out again. Her hands and feet got covered with running sores. They commenced like little gatherings, and afterwards broke. My own disease got very bad, too, and I did not know what to do. It was just about this time that I read of Zam-Buk and sent for some. The places covered by the first applications showed some improvident, so I sent for proper supplies, and persevered with the treatment. I used Zam-Buk regularly for some time, and am thankful to say that we are both well now. The diseases is completely expelled, and new akin has been grown over all the sore places. Zam-Buk cures inflammation of the akin, rashes and eruptions due to chills, cold sores, chafing, chaps and cracks, blotches, pimples, acne, eczema, ulcers, psoriasis, scalp diseases, abscesses, boils, poisoned wounds, festering sores, bad legs, sore backs, diseased ankles, ringworm, itch, tea. Also invaluable for cuts, bruises, piles, deep-seated pains, colds and chills, sore throats, &e.
DINAS POvVIS ORPHEUS SOCIETY. A thoroughly successful concert was given at the National Schoolroom, Dinas Powis, on Wednesday week last under the auspices of the Dinas Powis Orpheus Society, when there was a large attend- ance. Major-General H. H. Lee, R.E., J.P., occupied the chair, and the singing of the male voice party, under the able leadership of Councillor John Howells, was heartily applauded. The artistes, all of whom acquitted themselves very creditably, were Miss S. Bell (soprano), Messrs H. Morgan and J. Howells (tenors), and the Rev D. Glanmor Jenkins (baritone). Mr T. Morgan and Mr Hughes efficiently acted as accompanists. The programme, which was a very enjoyable one, was as follows :-Pttrt I.: March, "Cheer up Com- panions (Beeker), Choir; pianofarte solo, Mr T.

FOOTBALL. BARRY v. ROGERSTONE. .1 Great interest was taken in this re-played tie ior the Llanbradach Charity Cup at Llanbradach between Barry and Rogerstone on Saturday last, the sides having drawn their previous match with a score of two goals each. In beautiful weather, before a large crowd of spectators, Barry set the ball rolling. Picken took possession, and the Rogerstone forwards commenced a warm attack. Green cleared, and some desultory midfield play followed. Rogerstone had the better of matters for some time. From a line-out at half-way Gardiner got possession, and transferred to Poole, who took a long shob at the Rogerstone goal, which went wide. Barry warmed up. and some ding-dong work ensued. Rogerstone drew first blood by netting the ball, Barry equalising two minutes after. Half-time score Rogerstone, one goal; Barry, one goal. In the second half, Barry for some time had the better of matters, and forced two corners, but no score resulted. Rogerstone netted the ball, but were given off-side. Poole shot on the 25, but Dixon saved by lifting it over the bar. After a quarter of an hour's play Barry scored, James heading the ball through his own goal. Roger- stone played up well, Green saving time after time. Radcliffe and Watts hotly bombarded Bowen, but James brought relief to his side. Roggy forced a corner. Jones dropped the ball inco the goal's mouth, and Garnet Williams sent it in. When the final whistle was given the score was two goals each. The referee ordered an extra quarter of an hour's play, as previously arranged between the captains, but Rogerstone refused, having only nine men. Barry then walked down the field and scored a third goal. It is understood that Rogerstone will appeal. Final score :— Barry District, three goals; Rogerstone, two goals. BARRY DISTRICT RESERVES v. TON PENTRE. In lovely weather the above teams played a Cardiff and District League match at the Buttrills, Barry, on Saturday afternoon last. Mr Perrin, Cardiff, was referee. Playing with the slope in the initial half, the visitors did most of the attacking and scored through Fletcher, Winder, and Price. In the second half, Beddoe registered for the homesters, the game resulting in a victory for Ton Pentre by three goals to one. SOUTH WALES JUNIOR CUP. BARRY DOCK ALBIONS v. MERTHYR VALE. These teams met in the semi-final round for the South Wales Junior Cup at Newport on Saturday last, and the chances of the Albions looked rosy. However, the Valians gave a display which created surprise. The first half was stubbornly fought, but neither side succeeded in scoring. In the second half J. Evans beat Connor with a shot, and T. Thomas added a second goal soon after. Such a reverse disorganised the Albions, who fell away, and Owen added another goal against them. The Barry team were thus defeated by three goals to nil. BARRY RAILWAY OFFICES v. CATHEDRAL VILLA (CARDIFF).—The winners of the medals of the Fourth Division, Cardiff and District League, depended upon the result of this match, which was played at the Buttrills, Barry, on Saturday last. The Offices maintained their fine form of the last few seasons, and despite the fact that their, opponents were much the heavier team, Barry won by three goals to nil, and consequently will, in any case, obtain second place in the League. A. Griffiths (2) and L. Jenkins were the scorers. DINAS POWIS V. MACKINTOSH.—These teams met at Cardiff on Saturday last, when Mackintosh won by a goal and three tries to nil. BARRY ISLAND V. WOOD-STREET OLD BOYS.— This match, played at Cardiff on Saturday last, resulted in a win for the Islanders by three goals to two. COURT UNITED (BARRY DOCKS) V. PENARTH VILLA.-This match, played at the Buttrills, Barry, on Saturday afternoon last, resulted in a win for the visitors by two goals to one. PYKE-STREET OLD Boys (BARRY DOCKS) v, BARRY ROVIIRS.-A tight struggle between these teams at the Recreation Ground, Barry, on Satur- day last, resulted in the Old Boys' favour by a goal to nil. COURT ROVERS V. TYDVIL STREET (BARRY T)OCKS).-Played-at Cadoxton last Saturday, the Rovers winning by one goal to nil. Howell Harris obtained the point. TYDVIL RovEps v. COURT RGVERS (BARRY DOCKS).-Played at Cadoxton on Wednesday last, when Tydfil Rovers were successful by two goals to nil. Scorers-W. Shaughnessy and Arthur Fox. RECTOHY ALBIOKS V. COMMERCIAL STARS (CADOXTON).—Played on Saturday last, when the Albions won by two goals to nil. The scorers were A. Bryant and Howell Harris. BARRY AND PENARTH SCHOOLS' LEAGUE. BARRY v. DINAS Powis. -Fine weather favoured the matches in connection with the above league on Saturday last, and some good games were witnessed. At Dinas Powis Common, the boys of the village beat Barry rather soundly, by five goals to two. The game was an interesting one to witness, but hardly as one-sided as the score would indicate. PYKE STREET (BARRY DOCKS) V. HANNAH-STREET (CADOXTON).—As the result of their win over Hannah-street at the Buttrills, Barry, by two goals to nil, Pyke-street again secures first place in the league for the third season in succession. Hannah-street gave a good display, but they never looked like winners, Pyke-street forwards being continually on the attack. Saunders and Arnold scored the goals. Mr R. T. Williams was referee. BARRY COUNTY SCHOOL V. CADOXTON.—A totally different game ensued between these teams, the County School doing just what they liked, and won in the easiest possible manner by five goals to two. PENARTH V. HOLTON-ROAD (BARRY DOCKS).— After having all the best of this game at the Buttrills, Holton-road were unfortunately beaten by a goal to nil. Penarth only attacked on one occasion, when they scored, Holton being unable to penetrate after several fruitless attempts. NEXT SATURDAY'S FIXTURES. CADOXTON RADICAL INSTITUTE v.

BARRY COALTRIMMERS' TONTINE CLUB. THE SECOND ANNUAL DINNER A MARKED SUCCESS. THE ECONOMIC AND INDUSTRIAL VALUE OF TRADES UNIONS. The second annual dinner of the Barry Coal- trimmers' Tontine Club was held on Saturday evening last at the Castle Hotel. Barry Docks, under the presidency of Mr W. J. Lewis, who was supported by Councillor J. Chappell (Cardiff), Messrs Samuel Fisher (secretary of the Cardiff, Barry, and Penarth Coaltrimmers' Union), J. T. Clatworthy (Cardiff), Herbert Harris (secretary of the Barry Trim mers'Ton tine Club), E. A. Howells, J. Pook, H. Griffiths, C. Hill, F. Strickland, J. Dimond, T. Whitehouse, H. Dance, Morgan Jones, T. Jenkins, A. Morgan, J. Thomas, T. James, D. Bowen, J. Lewis, D. Thomas, J. Powell, W. Sitford, W. Scaffell, Llewellyn Rees, Joseph Thomas, James Jones, W. Meyrick, etc. A striking feature was the marked increase in the attendance com- pared with that of last year. Mr and Mrs W. Farmer provided an excellent dinner, and upon the removal of the cloth a number of suitable toasts were submitted. After the Royal toast had been loyally honoured, Mr Samuel Fisher proposed The United Trimmers of the South Wales Ports." He said there was strength in unity and combination, but whilst the trimmers of South Wales were not actually united to their brethren in the North of England, they were on the friendliest terms -possible, working hand in hand, and he hoped this friendship would continue for many years to come. It was melancholy to contemplate what their position would have been during the past ten years if individual bargaining had been prevalent. It would be a sorry thing if individual gangs were allowed to make their own bargains instead of having one distinct tariff for all. Trades Unionism, as a whole, had been under a cloud during the past two or three years, and even the judges in the High Courts appeared to be against them. But the fact that such an encouraging number of Labour men had been returned to Parliament promised a new lease of life for the working men of this country. He hoped the Barry trimmers would be united in their own ranks, because un- rest would creep into every union. There was no tonic like unionism, and their motto, he hoped, would be the greatest good for the greatest number." (Cheers.) In supporting, Mr J. T. Clatworthy. the Union organiser, said there were many interests which ooaltrimmers all the world over had in common, for they were engaged in a trade upon which the development of this country very largely depended. Fortunately, they had been singularly free from any serious disputes. There were many circum- stances which were responsible for this eminently satisfactory state of affairs, but he believed the chief factor was the sound understanding between the masters and men—(applause)—and also the organisation of the men, enabling them to demand a fair and just return for services rendered. In Barry, and South Wales especially, the coaltrim- ming trade had shown remarkable development, and such excellent results had accrued that they were anticipating a time of great prosperity. A depression had passed over the country, but a change for the better was taking place. In order to foster this improvement, it was imperative that the men should safeguard the good feeling which prevailed between themselves and their employers. If they were to accomplish this they should have a perfect organisation to enable them to negotiate with the masters on equal terms, and to secure for the general body of coaltrimmers a fair return for their labour. It would be manifestly unfair for one man to meet an employer and try to arrange his own rate of pay. The trimmers had much in common, and it would not be to their interests to do anything that would tend to dislocate trade. (Applause,) In practical and thorough terms, Councillor J. Chappell submitted the toast of the evening The Barry Trimmers' Tontine Club." He was more particularly pleased, he said, to have the honour of proposing this toast, because it originally emanated from that worthy old Spaniard, Tontine, a man who was scorned in his day, but his idea had been fostered, and had grown to be a mighty power in the land. If men would be so miserably mean as to begrudge the paltry weekly contribu- tion to help their fellow men, they deserved to severely suffer in their own time of need. He was proud that the trimmers at Barry had ,been able materially to help each other. If it were only possible to get the powers that be—perhaps the Imperial Parliament itself to ascertain the amount of good that was done amongst the working classes of this country each year by trades, friendly, and tontine societies, the people would see how unsignificant the so-called philanthropy of the rich really was. (Cheers.) The few days he had spent in the House of Commons the previous week had surprised him, for everyone seemed to listen to the reasonableness of the men's demands, and he could already see Old Age Pensions in the distance. (Applause.) Small clubs could not gain the desired goal by themselves, unless affiliated to some large body, but having a right to association they could continue their good work in the tontine club. They had been too much under the heel of the philanthropists," for where had their wealth come from ? Was it not the workers who had provided it for them ? If so, he failed to see where their philanthropy came in. At the same time they should respect the individual, and the individual would have equal respect for them. There were pensions for the soldiers and sailors who defended the country, and why not the same treatment for the men who built up the trade of the Empire? (Cheers.) Life would not be worth living if each man carried a small dagger in his his breast, ready to thrust it in his fellow by glance, word, or deed. The classes deserved credit for one thing, that of sinking all petty differences of opinion at social gatherings, and he was glad the Barry Coaltrimmers' Tontine had at least one day in the year when they could leave their shovels and disputes at the dockside, and be sociable one towards another. (Cheers.) He had much pleasure in coupling with the toast the name of Mr Herbert Harris, the secretary of the club. (Cheers.) In responding, Mr Harris remarked, amidst applause, that good and useful work had been accomplished by the club. The total receipts for 1905 amounted to J6119 3s lOd, of which £ 69 had been distributed in sick pay alone. After carrying a small balance to the present year, the remainder would be equally divided amongst the members. On an average for five years, the cost represented 12s peip annum per member, a sum that would be required by insurance companies to cover accidents alone. The Tontine Club was not formed with the idea of paying big dividends—its first principle was to help brothers in distress, and to minimise collection appeals on the dockside. (Hear, hear.) Amid much enthusiasm the toast of the health of the President (Mr W. J. Lewis) was drunk, in proposing which Mr C. Hill said they had in Mr Lewis an ideal president, and he was pleased to note the continued confidence which was reposed in him by the Coaltrimmers' Association by re- electing him on the executive council. He hoped Mr Lewis would always retain the high esteem in which he was held by his fellows on the dockside. (Cheers.) Mr Harry Griffiths seconded, and the President feelingly expressed his thanks. The remaining toasts were those of The Press," trnd the Host and Hostess," the former proposed by Mr Harry Dance, and the latter by Mr E. A. Howells, Mr A. G. Waters (Barry Dock News) and Mr W. Farmer respectively acknowledging the same. Songs by the President, Messrs Joseph Thomas, Harry Dance, Ted Hayes, W. Robinson, J. Macdonald, T. Whitehouse, Llewellyn Rees, James Jones, and Master Willie Pook, provided pleasing interludes between the toasts, Mr E. Ryan presid- ing at the piano, By his untiring efforts, Mr Herbert Harris, the popular secretary of the club, has prior claim to credit for the remarkable success which attended the event, which was most pleasant and enjoyable j throughout.

Newport scored early in the game, but just on half-time Pritchard equalised for Barry. From the re-stat t, Barry were unquestionably the superior team, and from a scramble under the Newport goal, D.

CROSS-COUNT RY. BARRY HARRIERS WIN THE JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP. The Barry Harriers are making remarkable pro- gress in every direction, and on Saturday afternoon last, at Ely. a team, representing the club, secured the Welsh Junior Cross-country Championship, T. Bunford occupying the foremost position. Nine clubs were represented, comprising over 100 runners, and passing the grand stand for the first time Barry supplied the two leading men in T. Bunford and D. Garrett. Bunford maintained his position, but Garrett dropped behind, and ulti- mately the former won brilliantly. Barry secured the championship, their positions being — T. Bunford 1, D. Garrett 7, T. Watson 15, S. Davies 17, W. Abbott 24, and G. Pyke 26. total 90. Mr E. B. Waite, the secretary of the Barry Club, was one of the judges. E. W. O'Donnell this year ran with the Roath team (who obtained the second position), and he made a bold bid, having led several times around, but was seized with a stitch," and finished sixth man. The same evening the team to represent Wales next Satur- day was selected, and included E. W. O'Donnell and T. Bunford. COMMENTS. For the Barry team, in their second season, to carry off club and individual honours in the Welsh championship, is no mean performance. That it is consistent with their form throughout the season will be seen from the fact that they have lost only one match—against Roath by two points. This success should spar them on until they win the senior championship. There were some splendid s on Saturday. Watson had a rare tussle with an Abergavenny man, the pair being neck and neck for fifty yards, but the Barry man managed to get home by a foot. & ♦ I. Reece also finished well, beating four men in the last 100 yards, Mcintosh was also loudly applauded for a remarkable finish. As a matter of fact all the Barry men came home with a good sprint, showing that they were not exhausted. The Barry win was also unique, as it was the second season that they were the only team "to complete the whole e-o-ursa to a man. The spectators were loud in their praises of the pluck and enthusiasm of the Barry runners, and predict a splendid future for them. It was the youngest team in the competition, j ■* After the match O'Donnell and Bunford were both chosen to run for Wales in the international contest at Caerleon next Saturday, when all the crack English, Scotch, and Irish runners will be competing, and a fine race is assured. Cheap tickets (2s 3d) may be obtained of Mr E. B. Waite, secretary of Barry Harriers, or any of the club members. Train leaves Barry Docks at 1.34 p.m.
