BARRY AND/DISTRICT TRADES' COUNCIL, ¡ LIVEI/f MEETINGS. WHOHA8. wlFfTEN TO THE PRESS ? [FROM A CORRESPONDENT.] In our last issue we stated that a meeting of the Barry District Trades Council had been held, but in consequence of the matter under discussion no detailed report was furnished the Press. We are now able to give our readers a report of each of the meetings. THE 'FIRST MEETING. On Friday, 12th inst, an ordinary meeting of the above Council was keld at the Victoria Hotel, Holtea, the President and Vice-President occuping their respective positions. MT. Ivor Thomas proposed, and Mr. Griffiths (Carriage Guilders' Society) seconded, that the namutes of the previous meeting, as read, be eon- firmed anfl. signed. An amendment feat the minutes be not con- firmed until a discussion had taken place was moved by Mr. Harrison, atr.d seconded by Mr. bobbins, btit the Council rejected it and confirmed tihe minutes. WHY ? Mr. 'T. S. Thomas asked the reason *hy the inames of the delegates attending the 'Council meetings had been omitted from the reports furnished to the Press. Tite Secretary and his assistant explained that -several of the members had asked them not to mention their names in the reports as it would tend to injure them, and consequently they had 'decided not to mention. any names at all. To ;publish an incompleted list of those would tend, -in their opinion, to make the representation on the 'Council appear very weak. The replies of the Secretaries gave rise to some disonssioa,,several members remarking that those persons who were afraid of their names appearing in the Press should resign their position in order to enable those who were willing to have their names published to take their places. Mr. Copp proposed, and Mr. Dtlflsford seconded, that the names of the societies represented, and not that of the delegates, should be published but, after some discussion, it was withdrawn, nothing further being done in the matter. WHO M OBSERVER ? The only business dealt with during the re- mainder of the evening was iaa connection with ri the statements made by an individual writing under the name of Observer in the South II ales Labour Times (anorgan now called Tocsin). Mr. Copp openly charged a member with being Observer," and said he could prove that the mem- ber and Observer were one and the same. The proof he adduced was that the remarks of Observer were written in the same strain as that in which the member generally penned his letters. Mr. Copp said Observer wrote only on the work of the Council and nautical matters. He maintained that as Observer" knew so much about shipping-and only shipping—it was only natural to suppose that that member had written the notes under discussion. Mr. Copp further stated that the member referred to had never com- plained at any of their meetings that the Council had neglected its work. That member had never brought anything before the Council without due consideration being given to the same. The Council, the speaker knew, was not perfect, but, whatever REFORM WAS NEEDED, it would not be brought abeut by rushing to the Press. The member accused, if he desired the welfare of the Council-of which he was an officer —should have brought any complaint he had before that body, and thereby spared the Council public ridicule in the Press. In conclusion, Mr. Copp moved that the Council pass a vote of censure on the individual as the writer of -1 Observer's notes. Mr. Rees seconded, and said he thought Ob- server's reference to the place-seekers was intended to stigmatise him as a member of the School Board. If the notes had been signed 41 A Traitor to a Trade," instead of 41 Observer," it would be more in accord with the tone of the notes. The speaker charged a particular member with doing nothing inside the Council chamber, and with rushing to the Press to ventilate his would-be grievances. He should be the last to make damaging statements about that body, especially so considering the worry, anxiety, and also the expense the Council had undertaken when -endeavouring to make his candidature at an elec- tion a success. The above resolution upon being put to the vote was negatived. An amendment proposed by Mr. T. S. Thomas seconded by Mr. T. Thomas, to the effect that as the charge had not been conclusively proved it be not entertained, was then passed. Mr. Harper (president) who said he felt keenly the stigma which being over the good name of the Council, was also of opinion that member referred was responsible for 44 Observer's notes. The accused Relegate refused to pledge himself that he was not 44 Observer," and went on to state that Mr. Copp was responsible for THE QUADRUPLE ALLIANCE which took place at a former election when he (the speaker) was defeated. It was also, he said, an open secret that Mr. Copp when president was ,entirely in the hands of an outsider. Mr. Copp denied in toto the accusations, and that he was ever in the hands of an outsider but said had always endeavoured to do his utmost for the welfare of the Council. The statements, he said, were both ungracious and ungrateful as he (Mr. Copp) had worked most assiduously to get him returned, and had on many days utilised his dinner hour to further his accuser's candidature, and he alone was responsible for the alliance inasmuch as he was eager to join other candidates, and thereby sharing those gentlemen's property and other votes. Mr. Copp remarked on the readiness with which the accused delegate had got up to deny that he was not44 Trade Unionist," and that he had utterly failed to deny that he was M Observer." Mr. Burgess proposed, and Mr. Copp seconded a. motion, that the Council express implicit confidence in its officers, but the motion was de- feated. Mr. T. Thomas said it appeared to him to be very inconsistent to endeavour to pass a vote of confidence in their officers, while one of them was suspected of being 14 Observer." With a view to proving whether" Observer" was a member of the Council. Mr. T. Thomas proposed, and Mr. Henson seconded, the following resolution That we, the undersigned, hereby testify that we have not on any occasion written under the nom. de plume of Observer to the South Wales Labour Times. The following signed the above -Messrs. W. Copp, T. S. Thomas, J. Rees, Burgess, Dunsford, Sutton, Griffiths, Henson, Ivor II. Thomas, Mooray, and T. Thomas. Messrs. Harrison and Robbins refused to sign, whilst Messrs. Harper and Morris remained neutral. Mr. Harrison described that mode of obtaining signatures as coercion. Mr. Harrison intimated to the Council his inten- tion of withdrawing, and Mr. Harper .also said he intended seceding from the Council, but upon 'being remonstrated with he withdrew that state- ment. Mr. Dunsford, who took considerable part in the discussion, said that unless 44 Observer," was found out and ousted from the Council he would advise his branch to secede from the Council, as he thought it was useless their meeting while an -enemy was in the camp. Mr. Harrison gave notice of his intention to move at the next meeting that the Press reports be discontinued. Upon the motion of Mr. Burgess, seconded by Mr. Robbins, it was unanimously decided to adjourn the meeting for a week, THE SECOND MEETING wac held at the Victoria Hotel on Friday evening last, NOT FULL ENOUGH. The minutes of the previous meeting having keen read by the Assistant Seciefcary, it was con- sidered that they did not deal. minutely with the proceedings of the previous meeting, find upon the motion of Mr. Robbins, seconded by Mr. Morris, it was decided that they should be held over until the following meeting, in order that a more detailed account should be handed in. THE HCLL STRIKE. The Chairman read over some letters bearing reference to the Hull strike, and upon the motion of Mr. T. Thomas, seconded by Mr. Robbins, it was decided to defer theii- considet-ation until the next meeting. THE PROPOSED PRI22S DRAWING. As no information as te the of Mr. Harry Da-ties was forthcoming, it was decided to allow the question of the proposed piifce draw- ing to stand over for the present. TO AUDIT TFFIS ACCOUNTS. The meeting then proeeeded to the anointment auditors, and upon the motion of Mr. T. Thomas, seconded by Mr. Griffiths, Mr. Ivor Thomas was unanimously elected as one of the auditors. Mr. Ha.Frisons' nam'e was also mentioned, but as he declined to allow to be voted upon, some difficulty was experienced in the selection of another auditor. On the motion of Mr. Dunsford, seconded by Mr. Ivor Thomas, Mc. Morris was nominated. Although Mr. Morris slightly demurred, the Chairman proceeded with the voting, and; Mr. Morris was declared elected. Mr. Harrison took exception to the election, and as a co-delegate of Mr. Morris, protested against it. The Chairman told Mr. Harrison that such remarks, if needed, ought to be left to Mr. Morris himself. Ultimately, upon the motion of Mr. T. Thomas, seconded by Mr. Robbins, Mr. T. S. Thomas wa3 elected as an auditor. RAILWAY SERVANTS REPRESENTED. Mr. Makepeace then entered the room, and handed to the chairman his credentials as the daly-elected representative of the Railway Ser- vants, in place of Mr. H. Davies. The delegate having retired, a vote was taken as to whether he should be admitted, and it was decided, by seven votes to two, that he be accepted. Mr. Makepeace then took his place at the table as a delegate. WORKMEN'S TICKETS WANTED. Mr. Copp had given notice of motion respecting the appointment of a deputation to wait upon the General Manager of the Barry Railway Company with a view to having cheap weekly tickets issued to working men, but, as Mr. Copp was not present, the question was not discussed. A letter was read from the General Union of Carpenters, and Mr. T. Thomas proposed, and Mr. Dunsford seconded, that it be held over to the next meeting. Mr. Harrison proposed, and Mr. Ivor Thomas seconded, that the letter should be discussed. It was decided to allow the letter to remain over until the next meeting. THE OLD QUESTION. Mr. Makepeace asked whether the special meet- ing had not been called to consider the communi- cations to the Press of Observer and 44 Trade Unionist." The Chairman said it was not so, but Mr. Makepeace was at liberty to bring the matter forward. Mr. Harrison having stated that he sympathised with some of the views of Observer and 44 Trade Unionist," Mr. Makepeace asked him with what portions he sympathised. Mr. Harrison said he thought the same as Observer and Trade Unionist" with regard to the Council lacking in organisation, and also in paying too much attention to sectional policy. By sectional policy he meant matters not apper- taining to labour, but to the ratepayers generally. Mr. Makepeace again asked Mr. Harrison to define what he meant. Mr. Harrison thereupon charged Mr. Makepeace with being no Trade Unionist, and said he had opposed the labour candidate at the last Local Board election. Mr. Makepeace complained of the way Mr. Harrison had insulted him by saying he was not a Trade Unionist, and that upon his first appear- ance at the Council's meetings. He had always understood that courtesy and fair-play were dealt out at Trade Council meetings, and Mr. Harrison's behaviour had seriously pained him. Mr. Robbins then gave notice that at the next meeting he would bring 44 Observer" and 44 Trade Unionist's" commuuications again before the Council. Mr. Harrison gave notice of his intention to resign his position of vice-president. It was decided to furnish the Coal Trimmers' Association upon their application, with a copy of the Council's rules.
TRADES UNIONISM AT BARRY. A FLUTTER IN THE TRADES COUNCIL. The following appeared in the Western Mail of Friday last :— 44 Trades Unionist" (Barry) writes :—" You were kind enough to publish in the Western Mail a week or two ago a letter from me with refe- rence to the downgrade tendency of Trades Unionism at Barry, more particularly, however, as it affects the Trades' Council of the district, of which body I am a member. A special meet- ing of the Trades' Council was held last Friday, when there was a larger attendance than there has been for a long time. The entire evening was devoted to a furious condemnation of my letter in the Western Mail, and that of 'Observer,' both of us being described as traitors to the cause of labour. So far as I am concerned, at any rate, I give place to none of my fellow-members of the Council either for experience or enthusiasm in the great cause of Unionism, but when I could so plainly see—as has been the case in connection with our Trades' Council for a long time-the interests of labour sacrificed utterly at the altar of personal ambition and greed for public honours, I thought it was full time to draw the line.' We are blamed for having exposed these matters, but what else could we possibly have done when reasonable remonstration and gentle protest indoors were of no avail ?"
AT PORTHCA WL. TWO UNFORTUNATE ACCIDENTS occurred on Monday evening, when two young men, hailing from Pontycymmer, met with nasty accidents. One had his head injured by a blow with a quart jug, The other young man fell out of a high-flyer, breaking his arm in two places. Dr. Williams was called in, and both patients were able to go home by a late train after having their respective wounds attended to. CARRIAGE ACCIDENT. On Monday morning a child was knocked down in the street by a carriage driven by Mrs. Riley and a lady friend, but, with the exception of a slight abrasion on the shoulder and the shock, the youngster escaped uninjured.
THE ALLEGED ASSAULT ON MISS JENNER. Miss Jenner writes :—" Editor Barry Dock Star, -Allow me to say that the last paragraph in your report of the above proceedings is not only mis- leading but conveys a totally wrong impression. 4 Comparisons are odious,' and flattery is out of place anywhere, and never indulged in by myself.

DO YOU W £ IflH YOUR BF»EAD? CHARGES AGAINST LOCAL BAKERS. NEGLECTING TO WEIGH BREAD. -)rAtrrBar-ry Dock Police-court on Thursday (before Mr. T. Morel and Mr. J. Duncan) John Toppins, grocer. and provision dealer, Thompson-street, Barry Dock, was charged with selling bread to the public other than by weight. Defendaat, who conducted his own case, refused to go into the box. Poliee-constable William Williams stated that he visited defendant's premises on the evening of the 12th inst., and asked for a quartern loaf. Defendant's wife told him she had none, but gave him two half-quarters. He then complained that -she had served him with the loaves with- out previously weighing them, and said he would report the case. Defendant said the constable ought to have asked to have the bread weighed if he wanted it. The loaves, which he afterwards weighed were 31b. 9-^oz., 61-oz. less than the proper weight. Defendant now pleaded he was not bound to weigh the bread except a customer requested it, and maintained there was no penalty in law for the omission in the circumstances. He only kept bread in his shop as a convenience for people coming from the dock late at night, and he made very little by it. He only commenced selling bread eight weeks ago, and during that time he had received two letters from the police, a fact which looked to him very much like prosecu- tion. The Bench said defendant was guilty of an illegal act, and imposed a penalty of 5s., including costs, with a caution. Henry Burbridge, grocer, &c., Barry-road, Cadoxten, was then charged by the same constable with the same offence on the 15th inst. The officer said he visited defendant's shop about 5.30 on Monday evening, and was supplied on request with a quartern loaf by defendant's daughter. The loaf was afterwards weighed, and found to be l-Joz. under weight. 4 Mrs. Burbridge (who appeared for her husband) said she sold the bread without weighing, as she bought it. She did not known the law on the matter, but her daughter offered to weigh the loaf as soon as the constable complained. Mr. Morel said there were a great deal of com- plaints about this offence in the district, and the public must be .protected against deception by tradespeople. Defendant must pay a fine of 5s., including costs. — .IF

DEAR SIR,-At a meeting of the members of the" Garrick Society held Friday evening last, a vote of thanks was unanimously passed to those ladies and gentlemen who so kindly lent articles, furniture, &c., for the performance on the 10th inst., thus adding very materially to the unquali- fied success of the performance. As the number of friends who helped us makes it impossible for us to write individually to each. We shall feel obliged by you publishing this communication, which I hope each will see, and ercept in lieu of a direct communication. — Believe us, dear sir, yours, &c. F. W. CORNISH, ) Hon. Sees. "Garrick" ALEX. S. HOLMES, f Histrionic Society. A HOLTON ROAD NUISANCE. TO THE EDITOR. DEAR SIR,-As a resident tradesman of Holton- road, will you allow me through the medium of your widely-circulated paper to protest against what is rapidly becoming an unbearable nuisance on the Holton-road, I allude to the street singing and music. No one could be more eager than myself for the promotion of the spiritual interests of Barry Dock, but, Sir, I think such noises as we, on the Holton-road, have been compelled to put up with lately ought to be abandoned at once. Take Sunday evening last for example, just as things were quieting down a little a party of persons, walking in procession, serenaded my house, their vocal efforts being ably supported by three concertinas. One of the tunes played, I believe, was 44 Rescue the Perishing J" save the mark, if this kind of thing continue, I am sure we shall all have perished far beyond all hope or chance of rescue. Then of a week night what witk the everlasting Miner's Dream," Maggie Murphy's Home," and the crowds of youngsters who congregate on our doorsteps, I cannot wonder that shops remain vacant on thel Holton-road,— I am, &c., A POOR HOLTON-ROAD TRADESMAN. Holton-road, May 21st, 1893. LOCAL GROCERS AND BREAD-SELLING. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,—I read with satisfaction the report of the eases in which loeal tradespeople were fined for selling bread other than by weight. In exposing these offences the police are only doing their duty, and I think the public ought to be thankful to them for doing so, for it is simply disgraceful that, in a small quartern loaf, we should be robbed in some instances to the extent of six or seven ounces. I hope the next move of the police will be in the direction of watching the movements of our coal dealers who, I fear, seldom throw the coal they sell in the scales in the presence of their customers.—I am, &c., CONSUMER. TEACHING OF WELSH IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,—I shall feel obliged if you will kindly allow me to give some reasons for what I said at the Cadoxton teachers' meeting. 1. With our present curriculum of elementary, obligatory, and two-optional class subjects, which are taught throughout the section, we have as much as we can do to meet the requirements. 2. English is our commercial language, and a key to a vast amount of useful knowledge, such as agriculture, engineering, chemistry, electricity, &c. Cheap text-books on all these subjects are abundant. 3. Welsb. is necessary only in speaking to Welsh people who do not know English. At present these form a fraction of the rural population of a portion of Wales, and in 50 years the numerical value of this fraction will be 0. Practically speaking there are no text books in the Welsh language. 4. If a language should be taken as a "specinc subject" in Standards V., VI., and VII., it should be French or German, Each of them is the language of millions. The child would reap some benefit from this instruction in continuing his studies at an Intermediate School or in passing a preliminary examination for a profession.-Yours, &c., JOHN DAVIES.

CONSERVATIVE INA CTIVITY AT BARRY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE WESTERN MAIL." SIR,-May I ask, through the medium of your influential columns what has become of the Barry and Cadoxton Conservative Association ? I remem- ber the time when this body was full of activity and influence, but since the general election it seems to have 44 ceased to be," and the members are at liberty to cherish political opinions at their own sweet will. Surely this is not the way to promote strength wherewith to secure the election of a constitutional representative in Parliament for South Glamorgan. Where is the president ? Is there a secretary in existence ? What about the committee ? These are considerations which may well engage the attention of the Conservatives of Ba.rry.-I am, &c., ORANGEMAN. Barry Dock, May 20.
THE CADOXTON WESLEYAN SUNDAY SCHOOL TREAT. The members of the Cadoxton Weslayan Sunday School had their annual treat on Monday in a field at Palmerstown.

NARROW ESCAPE FROM DROWNING AT BARRY DOCK. On Saturday night two licensed boatmen were thrown into the sea off Barry Dock and narrowly escaped being drowned. The pleasure steamer Lynton, belonging to Messrs. Edwards, Robertson and Co., of Cardiff, was returning from an after- noon trip to Weston-super-Mare, the boat reaching the entrance to Barry Dock about half-past ten o'clock. As the steamer approached the entrance a boat containing two Barry boatmen named Howsden and Booker, came up, when the tug Sea Prince, coming from another direction, struck the boat and capsized it. Being dark at the time, it was difficult to discern the whereabouts of the two men who had been precipitated into the sea. After some delay another small boat, manned by a couple of boatmen named Chappel and Taylor, came on the scene, and the drowning men were rescued just in time to save their lives. The men were taken ashore and sent to their homes at Barry Dock in an exhausted state. TRADE AT BARRY.

THE SAILORS' WAGES QUESTION. The steamer Trevanion lies blocked at Barry Dock, the captain declining to pay Union wages for a crew. On Tuesday morning an attempt was made to ship a crew of federationists for the steamer Moness, but the Union men who crowded round the shipping offiee resisted the attempt. It is also alleged that the second engineer of the Moness called for foreigners instead of Britishers as firemen, and flourished federation tickets" about his head in doing so. Thia irritated the seamen present to such an extent that one of them sprang forward and gave the officer what his assailant afterwards proudly described as "a good thrashing." The man got off before the police arrived, so that no arrest could be made. A crew was afterwards obtained for the Mones& at Union rates. MEDICAL APPOINTMENT AT BARRY. Dr. Neale, J.P., of Barry, the medical officer to the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board, has ap- pointed Dr. King, of London, as his assistant, in place of Dr. Prosser Evans, who has just resigned. BOAT ACCIDENT OFF BARRY. An alarming boat accident occurred off Barry on Monday. Two young men left Barry Dock in the afternoon in a small pleasure boat. After crossing Whitmore Bay and arriving at Treharne's Pier the occupants landed, and proceeded to the Marine Hotel, presumably for refreshments. One re-embarking one of them fell into the water, but managed to get into the boat. On getting round Nell's the boat was hailed by some boatmen, who urged its occupants to land on the rocks, but they paid no heed to the warning. Presently the sail, which was only half hoisted, got into the water, and the little craft capsized, precipitating both its occupants into the wa jer. One of the men clung to the capsized boat, while his companion seized hold of an oar. By this means they managed to keep afloat until the steam-tug Active bore down and took both men on board in a greatly exhausted condition. Had not the Active come opportunely upon the scene both men would inevitably have been drowned. LOCAL MARRIAGE. The wedding took place on Whit-Monday at the Parish Church, Cadoxton, at 1.30 by the Rev. E Morris, of Mr. Walter Folkes, ornamental free- stone carver, of Barry Dock, to Miss Flossy Ball, formerly of Malmesbury, Wilts, and sister to Master B. W. Ball (Barry Dock S.'ar).
