LOCAL MEN. The visit of the Federated Chambers of Trade to this district is an event which should be of the greatest importance to a place which has grown with the rapidity of Barry, and it is only right that those who visit Barry should know that to a great extent its public bodies have helped to make it what it is. We have pleasure in giving- the portraits of the chairmen of the various municipal bodies. Taking THE LOCAL BOARD as the principal authority in the district, its chairman I DR. J. P. O'DONNELL has had the honour of having a seat there from the first year of its existence. and took the chair last April by seniority. Dr. O'Donnell, who was bora at Castel Co.. Tipperary, Ireland, came to Cadoxton in October. 1886. and immediately took a pro- minent part in the public life of the then village. He was selected by the Yestry as a member of the Parochial Committee appointed to act in conjunc- tion with the Rural Sanitary Authority. He was .also member of the committee appointed by the Vestry to watch the interests of the ratepayers when the Barry Company applied to Parliament for powers to acquire part of Cadoxton Common for the eonsLruction of an import dock, and acted as honorary secretary to that committee. On the formation of the Local Board he was elected third on the poll, and was made chairman of the Bye- laws Committee and member of the Public Works Committee. He has discharged the duties as chairman of the Health Committee with consider- able energy, and taken a deep interest in the question of Barry Local Board being made a Port Sanitary Authority. Dr. O'Donnell is also a member of the School Board, being elected at the top of the poll at two contest?. THE SJHOOL BOARD. -7 "1: ME. JOHN LOWDON.. I.N.A., M.I.M.E.. is the chairman of the Barry United District School Board, and is looked upon as a very high authority upon all educational matters. He takes a deep interest in the work of training the young, and never feels more at home than in the chair at a meeting in which the rising generation play an important part. He has rnucli for Barry, and in return commands the respect and esteem of the ratepayers of the district. Mr. Lowdon is of Scotch parentage, and a marine engineer by profession a member of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, and of the Institution of Naval Architects. He is general manager of the Barry Graving Dock. THE BURIAL BOARD --?. Occupies the unique position of being the ouly public body in the district which is not elected by ballot. It is the offspring of the much-abused vestry meetings, of which of t times little is known until after they are held. lln Chairman of the Burial Board in this district is —- — MB, WITLUM THOMAS, Perhaps there is not a geitleman in the district better known, and we micrhfi say morp highly respected, than Mr William Thomas. He has don good work in the the past for the neigUi/L Uinuod He is an auctioneer by profession, and aho member of the Local Board and Public Libraries Committees. At the llst Burial Board election Mr Thomas was returned at the head of the poll in the Cadoxton Parish. Mr Thomas is also chairman of the Public Works Comm ittee of the Loca Board. BARRY DOCK MASTER. One of the most popular and well-known of the officials at Barry Dock is the genial Dockmaster, CAPTAIN DAnEg. Mush has depended upon the way in which Cap- tain Davies Ins received and treated those who; have business at Barry i)ock. arid the members of the Federated Chambers of Trade who meet at Barry Dock will find in Captain Davies one who has always been ready to help around the wheel of fortune for ra;"ry. Captain Davies also takes an interest in yublic matters. and was elected a mem- tier of the School Board at the last two elections. BARRY CHAMBER OF TRADE. To the activity of this body is due the present visit of the Federated Chambers of Trade. The local body has indeed had an up-hill fight, and we are compelled to say that had it not been for the very able and energetic President, Hill I I I I I MM [Mill l.ljljUlll' J' ■■ ■ Mil D- T A r,r.\ wnr-ytr > the Barry Dock District Chamber of Trade would not to-day be in existence. He has been its back- bone from the very start, and has been the means of making it a success. Several attempts were made to start a Chamber of Trade but with no success. until a few tradesmen, and notably Mr. Smith-Jones (the secretary) founded the present one. It has done gcod work in spite of its many difficulties, and will ill the future be looked upon as a powerful body, and especially as it is one of the Federated Chambers of Commerce. Mr. Alexander has worked with a will, and kept the wheel revolving, and the Chamber has been a blessing' to many tradesmen. It took a very active part in the Railway Rates question, and has been the means of securing a return of the over charges made by the Railway Company. Another great work of the Chamber has been the efforts put forward to induce the Barry Railway Company to run through trains, and to secure direct communi- cation with the Rhendda Valley. We are pleased to say that its work is now being crowned with success, and if tradesmen in the district would only take a deeper interest in its doings it would be of still greater benefit- to them. Everyone in the neighbourhood has benefitted by the increased postal facilities brought about by the Chamber of Trade, and we feel sure that when it is found that this body has for its object the bringing of increased prosperity to Barry many who have not hitherto put their shoulder to the wheel will do so. They can rest assured that the President and Secretary, backed up by the Council, will leave no stone unturned to bring this about. There is perhaps no gentleman in our midst who is looked up to by all parties with greater respect and admiration than MAJOK-GENERAL LEE, R.E., J.P. J 'l"mqn is chairman of the Finance Committee of the Local Board, a magistrate, guar- dian, and treasurer of the District Nursing Asso- ciation. He has worked hard for Barry in municipal matters, and is looked upon as a sound representative of the people. Major-General Lee is also a member of the Chamber of Trade, and has taken a prominent part in the question for the establishment of a Poor Law Union for Barry.

CORRESPONDENCE. The Editor does not hold himself responsible for the opinions of his Correspondents. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,—lie the presentation to the stage-manager of the Barry and Cadoxton Histrionic Society of a Swagger Umbrella by the Barry Dock Church officials. In the penultimate issue of both the local papers appeared what appears to me incomprehensible, viz.. the above statement. As I have seen no cor- rection or explanation in last week's papers of it, I will take the statement and examine its data, and endeavour to discover its significance. For convenience we may consider it under three heads first, the object presented secondly, to whom that object was presented and thirdly, by whom it was presented. (a) The object presented is an umbrella. The known uses to which an umbrella may be put are three (1) As a weapon of offence. (2) As a weapon of defence. (3) As an insignia of royalty, or chiefly dis- tinction. To consider the umbrella as a weapon of offence, we observe that it is useful in that capacity in either extremity. One end is like a knobstick, thick and heavy, and capable of dealing a deathly stroke in the hand of a powerful and skilful administrator, And I ups v\:t i my umbrella, And hits him over the siioutity-toutity-tout." —Old Song. Again, the other extremity or ferule-end of an umbrella is thin and tipped with iron, and is as effective as a boarding-pike or bayonet. For instance, a friend of mine, a coastguardsman, formerly resident in this neighbourhood thus described a little incident So, Sir, with that lie takes his numberella, and 11P he hops, and on the charge, and says he what do you mean a hinsult- insr of me." So far for the offensive capabilities of the umbrella. (b) As a defensive weapon the commonest use to which the umbrella is put it to defend its posses- sor from the watery darts of Jupiter Pluvus. However, in addition it is a powerful defensive weapon against a mad bull. I have a friend who, as long us he has an umberella, will venture into any field tenanted by a mad bull. As soon as the bull charges he opens his umbrella and steps on one side. the bull being utterly taken aback and flustered. I have never seen him do it, but he is a man of veracity, and I have no reason to doubt his word when he avers that he has often done so, sometimes even in sport. (c) The umbrella lastly is used as an insignia of savage royalty or chiefly distinction. In Africa's sunny clime the negroe king wears no diadem or crown upon his woolly head, nor carries lordly sceptre in his dusky hand. His distinctive mark of sovereignity and royal power is the swagger umbrella. The swaggerer, it is the prouder monarch he who walks beneath its gardy shade. Thus having cleared the way by considering the useful and honourable qualities appertaining to the swagger umbrella." we can now turn our attention to the second head. to whom this swagger umbrella was presented—the stage-manager of the Histrionic Society. This gentleman ought to be congratulated upon the fact that a representative Christian body -the officials of the Barry Dock Church—have thus delighted to honour him with a testimonial of such a dignified and manifold use and character. We hear great talk of the church and stage now-a-days. but I think that I may go as far as to say that the stage-manager of the Histrionic Society enjoys the proud distinction of being the only stage-manager in Great Britain who in his official capacity has thus been publicly recognised by the representatives of a Christain Church. If this be the case, he is fairly entitled to be congratulated upon the unique position which he has achieved among stage-managers. To my humble taste, however, he is not a patch upon that excellent actor and most successful stage-manager—him, I mean of the Barry and Cadoxton Garrick" Amateur Dramatic Society, whose trial scene in the Merchant of V (mice" transcends anything that has been seen on the boards of the Cadoxton Theatre. To whom also the testimonial of a swagger umbrella with its significance of honour and readiness for offence and defence would only be a fitting tribute for his numerous admirers to pay. I for one—not as a representative of a Church body, but in my capacity as a humble and admiring individual-would be glad to add my mite towards its cost in the hope that it would be the best and swaggerest of umbrellas-as the recipient would be one of the best and readiest of friends-a perfect actor and incomparable stage manager. I do not see why one stage manager should have a swagger umbrella, and not the other. The officials (so-called) of the Barry Dock Church have presented that swagger umbrella, but this swaggerest umbrella not the jasendo officials of the Barry Dock Church will provide, but every admirer of good honest acting will from every Christian denomination, yes. and particularly from the Barry Dock Church come forward and make the gift. It will be, I trust, such a swaggerest umbrella as stage-manager never before had. I have set the ball rolling, now let the admirers of the Garrick Amateur Dramatic keep it going. ('reseat avibulamlo. Now I come to the 3rd or last head, by whom the swagger umbrella was presented. The statement styles the donors the officials of the Barry Deck Church. Who are they, and why should they as representa- tives of a Church body present a swagger umbrella to the stage manager of the Histrionic Society. I have been looking for a disclaimer, a denial of thisistatement, or an apology for its appearance. I have waited in vain. It goes unchallenged, therefore I may take the statement to be true that a set or budy of people did actually give a swagger umbrella to the stage-manager of the Histrionic Society. But for reasons which I gave at the Barry Dock Church meeting I objected to have anything to do with the stage manager of the Histrionic Society. And I did so from no prejudice or dislike, but simply as in duty bound. I did not like his conduct on a platform for a Church purpose. I did not think it quite seemly in word or action, so I expressed to my Church Committee that I would rather he should have nothing to do with any entertainment got up for Church purposes. So when the statement appeared that the Barry Dock Church officials were the donors to him of the swagger umbrella I felt hurt, I may say, insulted. Of course in their private capacity any set of Christians and gentlemen have the right to present what they like and to whom they like. No- body has right to object to gentlemen giving a swagger umbrella to the friend of their bosom. But when they take the name of being representatives of a Christian body—calling themselves officials of the Barry Dock Church, why it alters the case and puts it on a different footing altogether, especially when such conduct is a public snub—a slap in the face-a humiliation for the person whom by the law and the Gospel they are bound to have respect. For is it not an insult when the Rector from a sense of duty ob jects to such a persoii as hardly decorous enough for a Church platform that officials should fly in his face, accept his services, and allow it to be pub- lished in the Press that the officials of the Barry Dock Church despised their Rector's opinion and presented this swagger umbrella to the gentleman objected to. But let us examine a little bit further into who are the Barry Dock Church officials." I suppose that all people will accept what the 49 T>„rif>h Maerazine says on that point, and then I think it will appear a piece of wanton impudence to let it appear that the Barry Dock Church officials made that present as an official recog- Z, nition of their appreciation of the services of the stage-manager of the Histrionic Society. Who are these officials- I Rev. Ebenezer Morris, B.A., The Rectory, Cadox- ton. Rev. Robert Usher, M.A., 56, Newland-street, } Barry Dock. Dr. John Livingstone, M.B., M.D., Clarence Villa, Barry Dock. Mr. F. P. Joner-Lloyd, Pembroke Chambers, Barry Dock. Mr. Alfred Evans, 9, Kingsland-crescent, Barry Dock. Well, here are six gentlemen who—if any can be called officials of the Barry Dock Church-ray) the only title to be called no. The first-named gentleman is the Rector. He had no act or part in giving the swagger umbrella, and was not'even summoned'to a meeting to consider the giving of one. Well, of two other gentlemen-one being the Curate and the ot-her the Rector's Churchwarden -why they, one would fancy, would be so loyal to the Rector that not only would they not oppose him, or a desire of his, in what he con- sidered the interests of seemliness of conduct pub- licly expressed, but surely they would be on his side and, as in duty bound, support to the utmost of their power his wishes. Of the other two one is a solicitor and a gentle- man, and would feel how ungracious a thing it would be to badger his Rector, or to oppose him in a factious manner in anything which he, the Rector, thought his duty. The last-named, Mr. Evans, I feel sure, would also not publicly affront his Rector. Well, I will leave the matter here, only making one remark, that grand spectacular services are not religion. Woe to that Church that leaves out the weightier matters. Truth, purity, and holiness are eternal principles, without which nothing is good, nothing is holy, or well-pleasing to Him whom we profess to serve. E. MORRIS. THE REFUSE FROM STREET GUTTERS. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-Kindly permit me to call the attention of the Local Board to the fact that a quantity of refuse of an offensive odour, was taken out of the gutters in some of the principal streets at Cadoxton last week, and allowed to lie on the road stenching- the atmosphere for days, whereas I think it should have been carted away quickly.—Yours, &o., HEALTH. WHERE ARE OUR POLICE ON SUNDAY ? TO THE EDITOR. I would be interesting to know what the members of our police force do with themselves on the Sabbath. Last Sunday afternoon, as I was passing through the field know as the proposed Public Park, off Holton-road, Barry Dock, I saw a dozen or so young men playing pitch and toss under the very eye of the central police-station.—Yours truly, MORALITY.
SPORTS TO BE HELD AT CADOXTON. A meeting of the Cadoxton Sports Committee was held at the Wenvoe Arms Hotel on Tuesday evening. Mr. W. Thomas (Hayes) occupied the chair, and there were also present Mr. S. Chappell, Mr. Dyer, Mr. A. Chappell, Dr. Treharne, Dr. O'Donnell, Mr. Simpson, Mr. Dando, Mr. Burnett, and Messrs. Morgan Bros. (hon. sees.) It was decided, in consequence of iione of the riders having been weighed in the Tradesman's Trotting Handicap to run the race over again on Wednesday, June 21st, at the Witchill Grounds. On the suggestion of Messrs. Morgan Bros., it was also decided to hold an afternoon sports meet- ing on the same day, the proceeds of which to be given to the funds of the Cadoxton-Barry Annual Whit-Monday Sports. Special prizes will be given by local tradesmen, and the programme (which will appear next week) will include boys', sprint, and pony galloping races. The sports will be managed by a small committee consisting of the Hon. Sees. (Messrs. Morgan Bros.), and Dr. Treharne, Messrs. Chappell, F. Williams, B. Hoddinott, and F. Pomeroy, and Mr. L. W. Jones, treasurer.
