THE ANCIENT BENEFIT FRIENDLY SOCIETY. — ANNUAL MEETING OF DELEGATES AT CADOXTON. The annual meeting of the delegates of the above order, representing lodges in South Wales and the West of England, was held at the Royal Hotel. Cadoxton, on Wednesday. The chair was taken by Mr. G. 0. Reed, Grand Master, who was supported by Mr. E. Thomas, D.G,M., and Mr. D. Rowlands, general secretary. THE DELEGATES WERE Bros. B. Maggs, Cardiff L. Huxtable, Maindy; W. Brown, Cogan T. King, Severn W. H. Barri, Cardiff; W. Morrison, Bristol; J. M. Day, Abercarn; J. Kingston, Bristol; R. G. Clark, Bristol; G. Woodlands, Radstock; T.

Vaughan, Cardiff; Phillips, Dinas Powis; J. G. Whittle, Cadoxton; Morgan, Cardiff; H. Riggs, Cardiff: W. Morgan, Risca J. H. Davies. Cadoxton and Rhys Williams, Cadoxton. The proceedings opened at 10.30 a.m. by an address from the Grand Master, after which the General Secretary read his annual report and statement of accounts, which showed that there were now in existence 42Lodges of the Society, and there were upwards of 1840 members. The total re- ceipts in the Benefit Fund of the Lodges including that from the Central Fund was £2,083 4s. 7;Jd. The amount in the hands of the Lodge at the 'Central Fund was £1,146 18s. 7d. The society rkad paid out in sick pay during the year £ l,52(i 4s. 3d. funeral claims of members, 4-132 ditto members' wives, £76; and to the general fund £218 Os. ljd., making a total of £ 1,952. The 2 Central Fund had received from the lodges £ 218, and had sent to the lodges no less than £ 480. The total management income was £ 323, and ex- penditure £ 229. THE BALANCE SHEET showed that there was to the credit of the Benefit Fund £ 425. The report of the auditors (Messrs. J. H. Davies, 22, Barry-road, Cadoxton, and Air. G. T. Hooper, Pontypool) stated that the BOOKS HAD BEEN CLEARLY KEPT, and that everything was of a most satisfactory character. The meeting next proceeded to ballot members for the central body, the result being that Messrs. Wookey, Monmouth Town Clark, Bristol Wil- liams, Monmouth Town and Collins, Cardiff, were declared elected. AUDITORS. Messrs. James, Abercarne, and — Williams, Monmouth Town, were elected general-auditors for the ensuing year. THE NEXT ANNUAL MEETING was fixed to be holden at Monmouth Town. THE OBJECTS OF THE SOCIETY readily commend themselves to every working man. The funds are under the direct control of the members, and all business is transacted by the lodges through the central office, which is situate in Cardiff. The members pay into the funds according to their age, and in sickness receive 12s. per week. The funeral benefit is £ 12 at the death ,of a member, and L8 at the death of a member's wife. In the past the whole affairs of the society had been conducted upon the amalgamation principle, but at Wednesday's meeting it was decided that each lodge should have a separate fund under its own control, and that no money be paid out by the treasurers, ex- cept upon a written order from the secretary. THE DINNER. was held at five o'clock, at the Royal Hotel, Cadoxton, the catering being carried out in an excellent manner by Mr. Williams, A LETTER OF APOLOGY was read from Dr. Treharne, medical officer of the Cadoxton Royal Lodge, regretting that he was unable to be present. The Grand Master, who occupied the chair, made a brief speech in opening the after dinner meeting; and urged upon the members to do all in their power to further the objects of the Society, which he said readily commended itself to all who had a desire to help themselves. He was pleased to say that the spirit of co-operation was rapidly spreading throughout the land. Mr. D. Rowlands was pleased to see so many delegates attending the annual meeting of the Society, and he was glad to see the course which things had taken. It had been said that there would. have been great alterations, but he con- gratulated them upon the turn things had taken. Although they had held six or seven annual meet- ings he was bound to say that THIS YEAR'S HAD BEEN THE MOST SUCCESSFUL. He hoped that the alteration which had been made would benefit the Society. lie hoped every member would do what he could, and they should all re- member that there was a certain amount of Home Rule with each of their Lodges. They could con- gratulate themselves that they had been able to get rid of a few of the sharks which had devoured the funds of their Society. That certainly did not apply to the Cadoxton Royal Lodge, whose members had done all they could to help the Society, which he trusted, was destined to become a mighty power. (Applause.) CADOXTON ROYAL LODGE. The Grand Master, in giving The Health of the Cadoxton Royal Lodge." wished its members every succes and prosperity. Mr. Davies said they had only done their duty to the brothers who had visited them that day. He was pleased to remind them that the Cadoxton Royal Lodge was the premier Lodge of the whole Unity-(applause)-and he was sure that its mem- bers would be pleased with the report which the delegates would take back. What had been done was for the good of the whole Unity, and also the central body. Although the Cadoxton Royal had paid more into the funds of the central body than any other Lodge he was pleased to say they had drawn less in proportion. In conclusion he hoped that the society would continue to grow amazingly. Mr. Rowlands complimented the secretary of the Cadoxton Lodge upon what he had done in the past. Mr. Rhys Williams said he had got into hot water often, but had always come out of it well. He really believed that their Society was one of the best in the district. Although they had suffered by members leaving the district still he hoped, that they had joined other Lodges. They had a good balance in hand, and their money was well in vested. Mr. Williams concluded by urging upon the members the desirability of locating the annual meeting, considering it an unnecessary expense. Mr. Wittle also returned thanks, and spoke of the excellent way in which things had been conducted. THANKING THE HOST. The Grand Master in moving a hearty vote of thanks co Mr. Williams for the excellent way in which he had catered, Mr. Rowlands endorsed the remarks, and re- ferred to the fact that Mr. Williams had always served them well. Mr, Williams (junior) responded, and assured the Masters that they were always ready to do what they could to please their customers. A VOTE OF THANKS to the Grand Master, moved in a very neat speech by Mr. Thomas, then carried. During the evening a capital programme was contributed by Messrs. Thomas, Vaughan, Wookey, Katherens, S. Jones, Jeremiah, J. Jewel Williams, and F. C. Rees (junior). Mons De Verdi presided at the pianoforte, and gave every satisfaction. The officers of the Cadoxton Royal Lodge are Messrs. Sidney Heskett, noble grand W. Pater man, vice-grand Rhys Williams, secretary; J. H Davies, treasurer.
THE ST. JOHN'S AMBULANCE CLASSES. INTERESTING PRESENTATIONS AT BARRY. t On Wednesday evening a most interesting meet- ing took place at the Welsh Congregational Church, Barry, the occasion being the presentation of certificates to the members of Dr. Kelly's Ambulance Class, all the members of which. passed creditably at the recent examination. Mr. D. Roberts presided, there being also present :-Dr. Kelly, Police-constable J. O. Davies (hon. sec.), Mr, Fourd, Mr. Rees (Barry Schools), Sergeant and Mrs. Evans, Mr. Griffith, Mr. Ralph, Mr. Lewis, Mr. Collins, Mr. Lucas, Mr. Arthur G. Collins, Mr. Albert Adams, Mr. H. Crocker, Mr. Samuel Trop, Police-constable Samuel Hockings, -Ir. Ed. H. Jenkins, Mr. Alfred Wright, Mr. John Halford, Mr. J. J. Mitchell, Mr. George Cole, Mr. Charles Hockley, &c. The Chairman, in a neat opening address, ex- pressed the pleasure it afforded him to be present on such an auspicious occasion. He was entirely in sympathy- with the object of the St. John's Ambulance Class. In times of accidents, before the medical gentleman could arrive, he was sure it was a great deal of interest to the comrades of the injured persons looked around to see if there were any persons who had received lessons in first aid. Mr. Rob rts then related cases where, by the aid of a knowl ige of dealing with accidents, LIVES HAD BEEN SAVED, and where, through a lack of knowledge, lives had been lost. He also instanced the case of a young lady who, by rendering assistance to amold gentle- man, was afterwards benefited to the extent of £ 150,000. He was sure they would not require any incentive of that kind to render any assistance to their fellow-men. (Hear, hear.) What was, a greater honour to a man than knowing he had saved lives (Hear, hear.) They had been very successful at the last examination, and he hoped they would continue to persevere and go in for another examination still higher. (Hear, hear.) It was singular how ignorant' they were of their own constitutions. It was, a most interesting study, and he trusted it would be of great interest to them in the acquirement of knowledge. (Applause.) The Chairman then distributed the certificates as follows:— Alfred Found Samuel Heckings Arthur G. Collins David O. Davies Thomas Lewis Edward H. Jenkins Charles Hockley Walter William Lucas Archibald Smith Alfred Wright George Cole John Edwin Halford Samuel Trop James John Mitchell Harry Crocker Albert Adams AFTER THE DISTRIBUTION T of certificates, Mr. Found, on behalf of the class presented Dr. Kelly with a handsome silver fruit dish. It afforded him great pleasure, said Mr. Found, to undertake that duty that evening. It was a pleasure in a double sense, first, because the class had brought about a great benefit to them- selves, and secondly because of the doctor's great kindnes with which he. had instructed them. They by no metils wished him to regard that as a guage of their appreciation of his services, but other than its intrinsic value. (Hear, hear.) All the members of the class felt very grateful to Dr. Kelly for the kindness and courtesy which he had always displayed towards them. (Hear, hear.) There was at the present time an idea amongst the members of the class that thby should not lose the knowledge they had gained. The possession of those certificates was highly satisfactory, but their value was nothing to his mind, compared with the knowledge they had attained. It was necessary, from time to time, they should ha,ve an opportunity of refreshing their memories and keeping in mind what they had learnt. It had been suggested that the members of that class, and members of other classes, of the first, second, and third stages, should join together and form a brigade, which would meet periodi- cally, and so refresh their memories and keep their drills up. Mr. Fourd then read the report of the Cardiff Brigade, showing the good which had been done by the brigade, and, in conclusion, said he should like t8 know whether DR. KELLY WOULD UNDERTAKE THE CONDUCTOR- SHIP OF THE BRIGADE. He hoped he would be kind enough to take them as a brigade, and that would stimulate them. (Applause.) Dr. Kelly, who met with a most hearty recep- tion, thanked the class for their very kind present. After giving a resume of the origin and progress of ambulance classes, which were first originated through the war of Austria and Prussia against Denmark in 1771, and called the Red Cross Asso- ciation of Geneva, and which had been acknow- ledged by all the great European Powers, and he (Dr. Kelly) had had the high honour of having the cross awarded to him at the conclusion of a war, by the French Government. (Hear, hear.) Of course the contingencies of war there in Barry Dock was a very unlikely to arise, and he did not think they need be at all buoyed up by the idea that they were going to march out to the field of battle, but still as the Chairman had observed they would find a field of usefulness, and, perhaps some very necessary work to do there in their little town., (Hear, hear.) Dr. Kelly then gave some instances of superstition in the dealing with burns, cuts, &c., which they must work to brush away. With regard to the brigade, it was a very excellent idea. (Applause.) They would be astonished to know how quickly they would forget the knowledge they had acquired, and perhaps through no fault of their own. There was a great necessity to keep up their reading, and, above all, KEEP UP, THEIR DRILLS. Also where there were works with water machinery it was especially incumbent upon everyone of them holding these certificates to keep themselves well posted well. They must always keep them- selves in readiness, because when an accident took place they could not run home and consult their books to see what was required. This was so, especially with cases of hemorrhage. If they wisely contemplated the formation of a brigade with heart and soul he would be with them. (Ap- plause.) In conclusion, Dr. Kelly again thanked the class for their great kindnets to him. He should always re-call their kindness to him when he looked at that date. (Applause.) Mr. Rees then presented Police-constable David O. Davies, the hon. sec. of the class, with a hand- some black thorn walking-stick, around which was a silver band, with a suitable inscription, as a mark of their appreciation of the very valuable services he had rendered the class. He bad been a teacher of science classes for the last 20 years, and had to do with many different secretaries, and he was sure that after the teacher the secretary came next in value. (Applause.) In a few words of eulogy of the work of the class, Mr. Rees said there was nothing more elevating in the human character than in assisting to alleviate pain. Mr. Davies thanked the class for the honour they had conferred upon him. He could only say that if any one of them had been selected in his place they would have done the same. He could assure them it would be a great source of pleasure to him if his little services to the class had been appreciated. (Applause.) Mr. Thomas Lewis proposed a vote of thanks to Sergeant Davies for his kind assistance, for the use of the room, and acting on the com- mittee. Mr. Thomas seconded. Sergeant Evans in response, said he was pleased to have been of any little service to the class What he had done had been done from a sense of duty in furthering those young men and teaching them to relieve the pain of their fellow human beings. (Applause.) It was the duty of every citizen to give his aid to these classes. Mr. Lucas proposed a vote of thanks to Mr. Rees for the use of the skeleton. Mr. Collins seconded. Mr. Rees was very pleased to be of service to the class, and they were welcome to the use of the skeleton. The Chairman remarked upon the number of Barry policemen in the class, a fact which was very creditable to them. (Hear, hear.) A vote of thanks was proposed to the Chairman. by Mr. Found, seconded by Dr. KelJy, and the public proceedings terminated. At a private meeting held afterwards it was decided to have a supper at Harry's Restaurant, Barry Dock, on May 19, when it is probable a brigade wll1..be formed.

As two little children, a brother and sister, were playing tog3ther in an empty house in Gueret-street. Barry Dock. on Monday morning, the former, named Ernest Powell, aged four years, discovered a bottle of impure carbolic acid which had been used by the previous occupiers of the house for disinfecting purposes, and before he could be prevented from the rash act he drank the contents of the bottle. The little girl carried the boy to the surgery of Dr. Sixsmith, in Holton- road, who applied the usual remedies, which. after a time, proved successful. On inquiry in the evening the child was in a very weak state, but progressing slowly. COLLISION IN BARRY ROADS. The schooner Anne, of Arendal, from Barry to Rio Grande, has returned to Barry with bul- warks and planks on starboard bow damaged, having collided with an unknown steamer in Barry Roads. OUR WATER SUPPLY. Mr. F. M. Harris, the engineer and secretary of the Barry and Cadoxton Gas and Water Company .has stated that, notwithstanding the long- continued drought, the public supply of water in the Barry district has proved ample in every respect. Consumers have not been asked to exercise economy, and Mr. Harris has every reason to believe that the normal yield at the springs will coutinue unabated for months to come, even if no rain falls meanwhile. Up to the present time there has been no falling off in the supply to the well. No doubt, the showers which have fallen during the past week will add materially to the water sheds. NO OPPOSITION TO THE GAS AND WATER BILL. The Bill promoted by the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board for power to acquire the gas and water undertaking of the Barry and Cadoxton Gas and Water Company will pass unopposed through its remaining stages in the House of Lords, no petitions having been lodged against it within the time limited by the Standing Orders. The Bill has already been sanctioned by the House of Commons. NOT TO BE PLAYED WITH. On Friday a boy, aged twelve, son of a milk vendor named William Carroll, living at Peny- coitre, Cadoxton-Barry, had a dynamite cap in his hands and was playing with it, when he struck it against a hard substance and the dynamite exploded, blowing the lad's right hand to pieces. Dr. E. Treharne, of Cadoxton, who was passing, dressed the shattered hand, which was bleeding freely, and found the injury sc- great that he was obliged to amputate the thumb and two of the fingers. The lad was in a very exhausted state, but is pro- gressing as well as can be expected. A VESSEL DAMAGED. On Saturday last the steamship Amoor, of London, struck against the quay wall at Barry Dock as she was leaving the basin with a cargo of coal. She damaged several plates on the port bow, and had to return for repairs. HOW IS TRADE > It is stated that at Barry Dock during the past week the coal trade has been fairly brisk, the ship- ments for the six days ended Friday morning being 88,018 tons 10 ewt., and the coke shipments and import trade have been equally proportional. The erection of several new hydraulic cranes along the western side of the dock and basin is being proceeded with. KNOCKED DOWN IN HOLTON-ROAD. Mary Kennard, the three-year-old daughter of Mr. Kennard, of 22, Gueret-street, Barry Dock, was playing in Holton-road with other children, when a passing cart, which was being driven somewhat rapidly, knocked the child down and seriously injured her head. The little girl was carried home in a state of unconsciousness, and Dr. Sixsmith was sent for, and the injuries were attended to. It was found that not only had the child received severe scalp injuries, but that, the brain had also been effected by the accident, so that the little one has continued ever since in a complete state of insensibility. WITH THE BUFFALOES. A select dance, promoted by the members of the Buffalo Institute, situate in Thompson-street, was held on Monday night, when there was an attendance of fully 150 ladies and gentlemen. The proceeds were in aid of thtf widows and orphans of those who met their death through the Great Western Colliery disaster. The proceedings, which were interspersed with songs and a theatrical sketch, performed by the Amateur Dramatic Society, were very enjoyable. Mr. J. Edwards was M.C., and the Buffalo Brass Band discoursed musical selections. THE HORSE AND TRAP DISAPPEARED. A traveller named Posson, in the employ of Mr. John Biggs, of Canton Brewery, reported to the police on Tuesday that while transacting business at the Wenvoe Hotel, he left his horse and trap in charge of a man whose name he did not know. On coming out of the hotel, he found that the horse and trap and man had disappeared, and no trace was left of them. It transpired late on Tuesday evening that the Newport police had found the horse and trap with a man walking in front of it. THE INDEPENDENT ORDER OF FORESTERS.

In our report of the grand concert at the Barry Market-hall we inadvertently omitted to rften-tion the excellent performance of Mr. John Thomas, of Barry. Mr. Thomas, although the only non- professional soloist, acquitted himself remarkably well, his duet with Mr. Hopkin Hill, Excelsior," being much enjoyed, as was also his songs, The Long Shoreman" and "The Storm Fiend." We trust to have the pleasure of again listening to Mr. Thomas at some of the local concerts. SMOKING CONCERT AT BARRY DOCK HOTEL. The third smoking concert was held at the Barry Dock Hotel on Thursday, the 27th ult., when a very select and appreciative number of gentlemen were present. An excellent programme had been provided, which was testified by the numerous encores given. The whistling solo by Mr. R. E.-j Reyd was a treat, and it is to be regretted that this gentleman with his peculiar gift is so very backward in coming forward. Another speciality was the bone solo and step dance, given by Mr. Juner Brooks, which well deserved the applause accorded. Mr. David Culley was in good form, and his two songs, ó. Kiss me (o¡ Princess Ida ") and Lass of Richmond Hill," were well received. The comic songs (in character) were very good, and we doubt very much whether they would' have been gi/en in better style at the Tivoli," which is saying a good deal for amateurs. Mr. Handcock, as chairman, appeared to be very popular, and he performed his duties admirably. The accompanist was Mr. Kelly, of Cardiff and a better musician it would be diffi- cult to find. The following is the programme :— Comic song, "Shop-walker," Mr. T. W. Elliott; song. Lass of Richmond Hill." Mr. D. Culley whistling solo, "Killarney," Mr. R. E. Reyd; comic song, "Pimple," Mr. Harry Smith comic sons, "i know," Mr. Harry Smith duet, The moon has raised her lamp above." Messrs. Brooks and Culley comic songs, Nasty way he said it," and Extra special," Mr. George Brandon comic song, We wore a worried look," Mr. T. W. Elliott comic song, I'll give him Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-aye." Mr. Willie Rednose comic song, I took it," Mr. Harry Smith comic song, English as she is spoken," Mr. George Brandon; song, "Kiss me," Mr. D. Culley song, "Vagabond." Mr. Brooks song, Hunting we will go," Mr. R. E. Reyd f bone solo, and step dance, Mr. Juner Brooks (of Brisbane). BARRY QUOIT CLUB.

_0- THE SANITARY CONDITION OF BARRY AND CADOXTON. The Health Committee of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board met for the first time on Friday last after the election, and at that meet- ing Dr. Neale, the Medical Officer of Health, presented his quarterly report, details of which we have pleasure in placing before our readers 'in another column. There were one or two matters which Dr. Neale brought before the notice of the Committees which will require -attention. In the first place reference was made to the escaping of dangerous sewer gas from the manholes of the sewers, and the com- mittee at once decided that Mr. C. R. Walker, the Drainage Engineer of the Local Board be requested to report immediately on what steps -can be taken to properly ventilate and flush the sewers. The Medical Officer of Health also called attention to the unsanitary condition of Cadox- ion Brook from Daniel-street to the Three Bells, and with the determination to make things safe before the summer the committee .gave orders that the Brook should be thoroughly cleaned out. The back-Jane between Holton-road and Wood-street was also complained of as being in an unsanitary condition, and it was decided to give instructions that the private improvements in this lane should be proceeded with at the earliest possible date. In Thompson-street the pool of stagnant water covering the vacant piece of land was ,reported as a nuisance and :injurious to the health of the public. This was ordered to be filled up, and the inspector of nuisances will 'forthwith proceed to carry out the work. 1 A I I I iuiotner very important question nas also been dealt with. The consent of the Local (Government Board has been obtained to the construction of the Barry Harbour Drainage, which will carry the sewerage to Coldknap Point instead of intOjBarry Harbour. Tenders for carrying out the work will be received. It will thus be seen that the Medical Officer of Health had no very serious nuisance to report, and that all of them are capable of being remedied almost immediately, also that the Health Committee took prompt steps to put the matters right. Dr. Williams, the Medical Officer of Health 'for the County of Glamorgan has also recently ^presented a report on the sanitary condition of the county. We are pleased to notice that the Barry District comes first in the whole county from a sanitary point of view. The only difficulty reported by Dr. Williams is, that this district is without permanent Infectious Diseases and Cholera Hospitals. As far as these matters are concerned our readers will be ■ pleased to learn that the Local Board have ,already take steps in this direction, having purchased one acre of land not far from Colcot Farm, and have also agreed to take over a -second acre," the purchase of which will be completed within one month's time. The Board will then be in a position to provide the dis- trict with a permanent Infectious Diseases Hospital according to the most approved plans of the Local Government Board. The site and position is excellent; it is a considerable dis- tance from the town and being on high ground, very healthy. There will then remain the securing of a suitable site for the erection of a Cholera Hospital. At the present time the Board have an hospital at the end of the timber pond, which is a far better Cholera Hospital than that possessed by most sanitary authorities in the United Kingdom. At the same time it would be much better if the Board could erect a hospital on an island, where greater isolation <;ould be secured for a hospital than on the main land. We consider the Local Authority for the Barry and Cadoxton district is to be heartily -congratulated upon its sanitary condition. Six years ago there were few places, if any, in the county in a worse sanitary condition than this district, but to-day there are none better than it. We trust, therefore, that the Local Board will be determined to maintain for the district the position it has acquired of being in the best sanitary condition of any in the county. Not only has Barry advanced in a commercial .sense, but it has led the way in sanitation.
THE "ATHLETE" DID NOT .■■5 PAY. ■■■■ ACTION BY A "SCHOOL- MASTER EDITOR." AN UNPROFITABLE PUBLICATION. At Cardiff County-court on Wednesday (before his Honour Judge Owen), an action was brought by Richard Albert Lewis, headmaster of Cogan Board Schools, against Mr. Lewis Lewis, Rotunda- buildings, Cardiff, and of Cadoxton, late proprietor of the Athlete, a small local weekly newspaper devoted to sport (which is now defunct), to recover the sum of £ 41 (2(5 weeks' salary at £ 2 per week, less £ 11 pa'd into court) for literary work done. Mr. T. J. Hughes, solicitor, Bridyend, appeared for plaintiff, and Mr. Arthur Lewis, barrister-at-law (instructed by Mr. F. E. Hughes, solicitor, Cardiff, for the defendant. The plaintiff was put in the box, and stated that in September defendant signed an agreement appointing him (plaintiff's) editor of the It was his (plaintiff's) duty to supply the literary portion of the paper. His Honour—What is the literary portion of the paper ? (Ltughter.) Mr. T. J. Hughes—All but the advertisements, Mr, A. Lewis-The advertisements form the substantial portion of the paper, and the literary part is the ornamental. (Renewed laughter.) Mr. J. T. Hughes remarked that in this case the advertisements were the unsubstantial portion of the paper. The plaintiff, continuing his evidence, said that the first issue of the Athlete was numbered 122, as the defendant had suggested that by making the paper appear older than it was they would be able to jrefc more advertisements. The first issue took place on the 3rd of October, and it was printed by the South Wales Publishing and Printing Com- pany (which was really Mr. Lewis Lewis) at the Barry I)i*h JYVtc* Office, Cadoxton. In pursuance of the agreement plaintiff employed correspon- dents to supply news from different parts of the neighbourhood. At the end of October there being £ 5 due to him plaintiff wrote to defendant, who sent him fonr cheques for £ 1 5s. each. He cashed one eheque, but had to refund the money to the bank, as the cheque was dishonoured, The other cheques he sent to correspon- dents. He (plaintiff) subsequently saw Mr. Lewis, \roo made good the £ 1 5s. and the balance of the Witness saw Mr. Lewis in December, and told him that if he would give him a reasonable salary he would give up the school. His reply was that the paper was not paying, and that he intended giving it up altogether. He (plaintiff) wrote to the Board saying he had resigned his post as editor of the Athlete. Subsequently defendant told him the thing was to go on, and that he must stick to the agreement. On the HOth of January he received a letter from defen- dent stating that his (plaintiff's) services would not be required, as the Athlete had been sold, and the purchaser would be responsible for the next issue. The letter went on to say that he (the defendant) was not satisfied with the work done in the literary department, and the loss he had sustained he attributed to the unsatisfac- tory manner in whick the work was performed. The only complaint previously made was about some of the correspondents not sending in copy. By Mr. Arthur Lewis The Board pressed me to give my undivided attention to the school. Albert Henry Wiliams, schoolmaster and jour- nalist, having given evidence, Mr. Arthur Lewis conterded that plaintifl had resigned before he received the letter from defen- dant, as shown by his letter to the Cogan Board. His Honour held that the agreement entered in to between the parties was binding for 26 weeks, aid gavd judgment foj plaintifffor j641. with solicitor's fee and costs of witnesses called.
