Full reports of the grand performance of the musical work Samson (Handel) by the Barry Dock Wesleyan Choir, at the Romilly Hall, Barry, on Wednesday evening last, together with the annual dinner of the Barry Butcher's Association, held at the Castle Hotel the same evening, have been crowded out through pressure of space, but will appear in the Barry Dock News next week. Mr W. Brace. M.P. "for South Glamorgan, delivered his maiden speech in the House of Commons last Monday. •» It is the intention of Mr F. W. Poole, of Messrs Joseph Rank, Limited, Atlantic Flour Mills, Barry, to pay a visit to the United States of America during the coming summer. 4- Mr J.

At a meeting of the Glamorgan County Council Local Government Committee last Thursday, Alderman Morgan Williams and Councillor Gwyn Morris (Barry) deprecated the small penalties imposed by the Barry magistrates in cases of milk adulteration. Mr Morris stated that the matter was all the more serious in view of the large child population at Barry.

The Barry Railway Parliamentary Bill, for the construction ot new railways into the Sirhowy Valley, came before the examiners for compliance with standing orders last Thursday.
