THE UlNAS POWIS HIGHWAY HOARD. -+-- A monthly meeting of the Dinas Powis High- way Board was held on Wednesday at the Barry Dock Police-station. General Lee presided, and there were also present Mr. D. T. Alexander, Mr. W. Thomas (Sully), Mr. Thomas Williams, Mr. Oliver, Mr. J. Thomas (Michaelstone-le-pit), Mr. -J. M. Savours, Mr. Morris (clerk), and Mr. F. Laurens (surveyor). The minutes of the last meeting were read and confirmed. A RATE OF NIXEPEXCE IX THE )'<)[ XD. The Surveyor presented his estimate of expendi- ture for year ending March 25th, 18!>3. It was £3,179 5s.. which sum did not include main read repairs. He also produced a general balance -sheet of the finance of the district, and recom- mended that a rate of lOd in the £ be made to meet the current expenses. He begged to draw .attention to the very bad state of the roads, which would necessitate extra material and labour I during the coming winter. Added to that. the fact of a large increase in the price of labour and material in this year's contracts over that of the preceding year—no doubt caused by the reduced guage of the stones—they would not be surprised to find his estimate above that of former years. He need scarcely remind them that in April last, -owing to the Eastbrook-road in St. Andrew's Parish being in such a bad condition, the County Council only paid half the cost of maintainanee. £36, saying at the same time that if the road was not better kept up in future they would with- draw their contribution altogether. He also wished to draw attention to the present method of laying metalliug- which was dune by simply tipping the material for mending the road over, and allow it to work in as best it could. The roads ought first to be picked open.—Mr. Williams asked whether the surveyor would recommend that in all places where stones should be laid, the road should be opened first.—The Surveyor replied in %the affirmative.—General Lee thought that it was the best way to do so.—Mr. Alexander thought it was better to face the difficulty, pay the money, -and have the roads put in thorough order.—The Surveyor said that: when the road was picked open the ■metalling went in whole, and the material was saved.—-The Chairman said the surveyor had shuvvu he knew his work, and they must trust to ■him.—Mr. Alexander said they must have things done properly, and face the difficulty.—Mr. j Thomas said with farming at such a low ebb they were unable to do these things without a pinch to the farmers.—Mr. Alexander said he look at it from a public poltiu of view. He knew things were bad for agriculturists, and he was sorry for the fact.—The Chairman said they must face the circumstances of the case.—Mr. Oliver asked how would they do if the farmers could not pay.—Mr. Alexander said in that case the landlords must pay. j —Mr. Williams suggested a Sd. rate, but the Chairman said it was bet ter to have the thing done in one call. Practically it would only be 9d. in the £ — Mr. Morris said, in answer to Mr. Alexander, that a 8d. rate would only bring in £ 1.531.—Mr. Thomas asked if the rate for the half-year following would be the same—lOd. in the v£.- The Chairman said very possibly it would be. He advised them to have the lOd. rate, and have the thing done.- Mr. Thomas proposed that a 8d. rate be made.— Mr. Lougher seconded.—-Mr. Alexander said the ratepayers were not all farmers.—The Chairman said the railway company paid a great part, quite a third of the rate.—Mr. Alexander said supposing they paid a rental of £ 100, it would only mean a difference of 16s. gd.—The Chairman said it would be a wise policy to have the roads put in order.— Mr. Williams said he objected to day work. It was impossible for a surveyor, however good, to look after a lot of men. He thought the work ought to be done by contract.—The Chairman said he J felt sure Mr. Laurens would not waste their money, and it was wise to carry out this recom- mendation. Dinas Powis and Wenvoe were the parishes that would suffer most. He pressed upon them to pay the heaviest part of the rate now, and know what they had before then.—Mr. Alexander said in view of the opinions expressed, he would propose that a 9d. rate be made.—Carried unanimously.—-It was decided to leave the business in the hands of the Chairman, Mr. Alexander, and Mr. Jones to appoint a referee in accordance with the request of the authorities. --It was decided that all the members should go over the road to see the way in which the con- j tractor had carried out his contract, so that in future they would be prepared to express an opinion on the matter.—It was left to Mr. Morris to inform the members of the Board when the visit 'would take place. J THE WENVOE ROAD. The Surveyor reported that the widening and ^diversion of the old parish road at Wenvoe. had not yet been commenced owing to a difficulty in filling up the old road. The permanent improve- ment could not be carried out without obtaining permission of Quarter Sessions. Until this was obtained, the surveyor recommended that the road be left open, and the other work proceeded with whilst the fine weather lasted.—A resolution was agreed to leave the matter in the hands of the surveyor, he not to spend more than £ 10 on keep- ing the present road open. MISCELLANEOUS. The Surveyor reported that a bridge in Sully parish, near the company's road, required repairing. The approaches should be raised, so as to allow an easy gradient over the bridge.—Mr. Thomas said the bridge was not in Sully but St. Andrew's.—Mr. Alexander proposed, and Mr. Thomas (Sully) seconded, that the improvement be carried out. The Surveyor asked for a sum of £ 60 to meet expenses, and a sum to pay bills, the whole amounting to nearly .-OOO.-Thc Chairman asked .how the balance at the bank stood,—The Clerk said it amounted to £ 89, and t50 had been paid in -during the week. j The Surveyor said that fencing should be erected at St. Lythan's, around a quarry used by the Board there. The quarry is at present in a ■dangerous condition.—This was agreed should be •done.—Mr. Sheppard, of Dinas Powis, had written asking that the royalty due on stones from his quarry at St. Andrew's this half-year be paid at once, as the money is due to his landlord. The "Sum -wai £ 4 3s. 4d.—This was agreed to. The Surveyor reported that he had visited and in- spected the place near Cattwg-glas in Welsh St. Donat's parish to see if a bridge was required. He did not recommend the construction of the bridge, as the road there was not frequented. On the motion of Mr. Alexander, seconded by Williams, it was decided that the Surveyor should get a typographic machine for the copying out of circulars for the use of the members. THE LATE SURVpYOJtJ. The question of the audit, of the: late surveyor's books was considered. Mr. Alexander presided, as General Lee had been obliged to leave to fulfil an appointment. The late surveyor-refused to finish his books for presentation for the audit, and a magisterial order would have to be obtained to compel him to do so.—The Clerk said that if the hooks were not made. up by Monday week the magistrates would make an order on him to do so, on the non-fulfilment of which he would be fined. -The Chairman remarked that this was the result of engaging a non-efficient surveyor.
GOVERNMENT INSPECTION OF POLICE. VISIT TO BARRY. On Wednesday the usual inspection of the constabulary of the district took place at Canton. After the inspection of books, &c. the Government inspector of constabulary drove down and in- spected the police-stations at Barry and Barry Dock. After a thorough examination Captain Parrv expressed his satisfaction with the condition Hjf the two police-stations.

LLANTWIT-MAJOR NOTES. fBy PELAGIUS.] -+- That versatile column in the II- Mail, which is a compound of wit, humour, banter, facts, fiction, and scurrility, I- Wales Day by Day," informed its readers that Nonconformity was on one leg at Llantwit-Major, and that there was but one Nonconformist minister in the place. It is to be hoped that the readers of the Mail take a large quantity of salt with their news, otherwise the Tory knowledge of Nonconformity here and else- where in South Wales will some day receive a rude shock, and the llWerw Moil will he flooded with correspondence enquiring how it is that the Church does not make progress in Wales. Your readers will well remember how. day after day, the Mail informed its poor dupes that Conservatism was going to sweep the Liberals in Wales but. after the election, what a falling off was there. The Mail was flinging its poisoned arrows here, there, and everywhere, laying the blame on every shoulder but its own. If for one moment it had stopped and asked itself the ques- tion, Have the way we have ridiculed the Welsh and abused Nonconformity anything to do with the defeat of Conservatism and its com placement, in South Wales." they would have said with Burns— 0 wad some pow'r the giftie gie us To see our sols as ithers see us It wad fine monie a blunder free us And foolish notion. Instead of one pastor we iiud at Limtwii- j Major four Nonconformist bodies Alritll three pastors, and two young men preparing for the ministry whose services are at the disposal of their churches, together with other local preachers, while the fourth Church has given a call to a very promising yuung preacher, and will be very shortly blessed with a resident minister. Judging by the offertories of the Established Church at Llan- twit-Major in past years. now that the Church is within measurable distance of having to support its own ministers, one sermon a year will be as much as Churchmen can expect, if the clergymen of the future will require the sum per sermon as they now receive by way of tithe unless some Liberal wave will open the purse strings of the Church-going people of Llantwit- Major. The Rev. Cynddalan Jones does not enjoy the confidence of the Nonconformist bodies of this neighbourhood. What a meagre attendance was that at our Town-hall at the annual meeting of the Bible Society. Man cannot serve two masters. The Non. Con. quill of the IVnxtrni Mail cannot expect those lie has been lampooning' to receive him with warmth. No. sir. as you make your bed j so you must lie. i
BARRY AND CADOXTOff XURS--1 ING ASSOCIATION. MEETING OF THE COMMITTEE. The committee of the Nursing Association held a meeting at the residence of Mr. John Cory, Porthkerry Park. on Wednesday afternoon. Dr. Neale presided. Among those present were Mrs. J. Cory. Mrs. Jenner (Wenvoe Castle), Mrs. Daniels (Sully). Mrs. Maxwell, the Misses Allen. Miss Savours (Rhoose). Mrs. Robinson (Barry), Mrs. Richard Robinson. Dr. and Mrs. Powell, and Dr. Livingstone. The minutes of the last meeting were read and confirmed. The Chairman explained that from the 1st of January up to the 1st of Sept. there had been 273 fresh cases which had been visited by the nurses 7,048 times. Out of this number of cases 22 had died, 188 were convalescent, and 41 had been taken off the books from other causes three cases had been sent to Cardiff Infirmary, and there now remained on the books 52 cases. The expenditure up to August 31st had been £ 254 13s. 2id., and the total amount of receipts was £ 237 14s. Id., leaving a deficit of £ 16 19s. Ud. To carry on the work in a thoroughly efficient manner, it was stated that another lady nurse was wanted in addition to the present three lady nurses, and the four nurse helps, as well as £ 200 a year assured subscriptions. Owing to the absence of the treasurer, Major-General Lee, who was unable to attend until later in the afternoon, the handing in of the money already collected by the members of the committees was deferred to the executive meeting, which will be held at the Home, Barry Dock, on Thursday next at three p.m.—In answer to a question of Dr. Livingstone the Chairman said the deficit would in a measure, be covered by the collection to be made by the District Trades Council tm the 10th and 1.7th of this month.—Dr. Powell suggested, in order to strengthen the funds, that each patient attended by the nurses should contribute some- thing, but in answer to this it was stated that the nurses—especially Nurse Evans—were averse to that method.—It was decided to re-arrange the streets for collecting purposes, as so many new streets had been built since the first arrangement. —This was all$he business of the committee.— After the meeting the members of the committee, together with several other ladies and gentlemen, partook of tea kindly prepared for them by Mrs. Cory, and a most pleasant evening followed.
STOPPAGE OF A KHONDDA COLLIERY. | SDH COLLIERS THROWN OUT OF WORK. On Thursday the workmen employed in the No. 6 Colliery, the property of the Glamorgan Coal Company, LIwynpia, brought out their tools, the notices to terminate contracts, received by them at the beginning of last month, having expired. It ) is stated that about 800 men were employed in and about the colliery, and that no more than 200 of the workmen will find work in the other pits belonging to the company. The workmen are quite in the dark as to the cause of the stoppage but it is stated in official circles that the colliery has been adandoned owing to its being unprofitable to work. It is rumoured that the company intend sinking a lower seam, which would be reached in about twelve mouths. In consequence of the [ abandonment of the double shift system on the coal in the Clydach Vale Colliery a number of workmen have been thrown out of work temporarily in that district, situate not far from Llwynypia. It is stated that operations will be suspended at the two other large collieries in the valley at the end of the present month owing to the slackness of trade. A number of the Ocean Collieries have been idle for a day or two last week in consequence of the depression in the coal trade, and slackness of trade is experienced in other collieries in the valleys.
LORD BUTE v. THE BARRY j RAILWAY COMPANY. This action, attached to the court of Mr. Justice Kekewich. which has been instituted for the pur- pose of restraining proceedings under a notice to treat, on the ground that the land the company j were proposing to take was not comprised in the notice, nor within the limits of deviation, came on Wednesday before Mr. Justice Bruce (sitting as a vacation judge), upon an application for an in- terim injunction. His Lordship was. however, informed by Mr. Marten, Q.C., that the parties had arranged for the postponement of the application for a fortnight, the company undertaking not to take any further action in the matter in the mean- time.

CORRESPONDENCE. I THE PROPOSED BARRY DISTRICT MALE VOICE PARTY. j TO THE LDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALKS STAR. Sir.—In reply to the letter which appeared in your correspondence column last week bearing the signatures of Messrs. S. J. Barstow, chairman and W. E. Davies, secretary of the Cadoxton Choral Union, we beg to state that we agree with the sentiments expressed therein, but we differ con- siderably from them in regard to the methods they purpose pursuing to attain their object. While being desirous to form a Male Voice Party that } will be representative of the whole district, we have no objection to see a good choir of mixed voices that will, in a measure, reflect credit to the district; but it is our experience that it is im- possible to serve two masters at the same time. Either a Male Choir or a mixed one will demand the greater share of our attention, and of the two it is our opinion that the Male Choir is the most j likely to succeed, and therefore the most deserving. Our reasons for believing this are :-(1). Owing to the greater proportion of male to female singers in the district, (2) Practical experience has shown us thafe the Male Voice Party of which we are members has been more successful and better patronised than any mixed choirs with which we have been con- nected in this district. We venture to think that j we can speak on this subject with a certain amount of authority, as far as Barry and Holton are concerned. As for Cadoxton. the present de- funct state of the Choral Union and party speaks j for itself. These few remarks are intended to give your readers our reasons for supporting the amendment which was carried at the meeting held on 23rd ult. Not wishing to descend to personalities, we avoid touching upon other subjects referred to in their letter, but would like to remark, Something attempted, something done"' in the past gives us hope that, by perseverence. we can accomplish still more in the future, and, that no opposition from any quarter shall deter us from striving to make our Male Voice Party a success.—We are. &c. A. A. SAWYER, CHAIRMAN*, J. T. ILEES, SKCRKTABV, Barry Male Voice Party.

THE great obstacle to the universal adoption of Life Assurance amongst salaried officials is the fact that in most offices premiums remain payable during the whole period of life, long after the productive years have passed, thus becoming a serious burden, whilst, at the same time, the surrender value are so entirely r disproportionate to the amount paid as premium that payment can only be discontinued at very serious loss. For illst:) neo, persons who) are entitled to retire with pensions from their employment constantly tind them- selves obliged io remain al. their posts, being otherwise unable to provide from their lessened income the necessary sum for the JJ1.liutewl1!C-c of their whole life policies. These obstacles are overcome by the Tontine Policies issued at. ordinary Ii r., rates by the EQUITABLE LIFE ASSURANCE SOCIETY OF THE UNITED STATES. The Society's Policies, with Twenty Year Tontine Periods now maturing, show (after furnishing protec- tion for twenty N eai-s a return in every case of more than the total amount paid in premiums. All Twenty Year Endowments show a return of the premium paid, with interest at rates between 6 and 7 per ceut. per annum.

THE CARDIFF MUSICAL FESTIVAL. Our readers will notice on persuing our ndver- tisment columns that the first Cardiff Triennial Musical Festival will be held at the Park Hall. Cardiff, on Tuesday. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, September 20th to 23rd. The festival is under the patronage of H.R.II. the Duke of Edinburgh. ICG.. and the president is the Marquis of Bute. K.T. The festival promises to those who attend an intellectual treat of the highest order, the committee having paid due regard to the necessity for variety and the maintenance of a high classical standard. As ought to ba the. case, the compositions of English and Welsh composers find a place amongst the programme in addit,ion to the compositions of the great masters of the Continent. The committee are fortunate in being able to present a list of works for the most part new to local circles. Much interest will he centred in the performance of the latest composition of Dr. Parry, the leading Welsh, composer, viz.. Saul of Tarsus," whilst the performance of Berlioz's "Faust'' will no doubt attract an overflowing' audience. The Golden Legend," will be conducted by the composer. Sir Arthur Sullivan, and Dr. A. C. Mackenzie has signified his intention of conducting his Dream 1 of Jubal." Tlie local railway companies announce their intention of running cheap trains for those in the district who intend being present at the festival, and we trust the committee will receive 1 that measure of support which their efforts deserve. This is the first attempt to have a i Musical Festival in Wales, and we trust that, in music-loving Wales a Festival, which is becoming increasinsrlv popular itt the land beyond Offa's Dyke, will find a permanent abiding place.
