LOCAL FOOTBALL. BARRY RAILWAY TRAFFIC v. LOCO. TRAINMEN. On Good Friday teams representing the above met at Castle Farm Field, Barry, in splendid weather, and I bifore a good number of spectators, the proceeds being in aid of the willows' and orphans' fund of the A.S R.S. The following were the teams :-Loco- Back, George Raines three-quarter back, J. Russell, R. German, D. Miles, and C. Sanders halfback, George Davies and Bart Hobbs forward, W. Henchell, J. Evans, R. Morgan, IS. Pairv, W. Thomas, R. Smiles, F. Cox, and D. Davies. Traffic— Back, R Cook three-quarter back, W. Greatrex, J. Sheen, T. Great- rex, and E. Kirby: half-back, W. Chick and Davies; forward. T. Williams, H. Shepherd, T. Shepherd. E. James, D. L. Lewis, J. Cook, E. Davies, and R. Pritchard. The Traffic team started the game, and play remained equal for a few minutes, a series of serums being waged at the centre. Kirby, for the Traffic men, altered the position by a good kick, which was well stopped by G. Rains, and the Loco forwards played up grandly, but the Traffic "pack "soon after reached their opponents' 25, where two or three scrums were formed near goal, and R. German saved disaster by running round the po«ts and up the field. Play re- mained even after this for a bit, when Kirby passed to T. Greatrex, who kicked over the Loco goal line, a minor resulting. The kick-out brought some relief to the Loco players, and their forwards played up in good style, when Kirby managed to secure the ball, and ¡ passed, but the same was not taken, and a serum was formed, Cook, for the Traffic, being called upon to save to stop a rush by the opposing forwards. The Loco's were near scoring several times after this, R. German, for that team. making a splendid attempt to score, but was hauled in touch by W. Greatrex close to the goal line. Kirby afterwards received, and, amidst applause, scored for the Traffic team, the same player failing to convert. German was again near scoring for the Loco just before half time, when the score stood :—Traffic, one try Loco, nil. During the second half the Traffic men had the best of the game, Kirby dropping a splendid goal from half-way and scoring a try. Chick also scored for the Traffic team, the Loco men failing to score a point. The game was a pleasant one throughout, and although the scoring was so unequal, there was not much to chose between either team. The Loco team was well captained by A. Hohbs, and R. Cook did this duty for the other side. Mr A. J. Medcroft, B.R.F.C., was referee. PENARTH v. HIBERNIANS. Played at Penarth on Good Friday, in gloriously fine weather, and before 5 000 spectators. The teams were as follows :—PeMar<A.- Back—C. T. Kirby three- quarter back-R. M. Garrett, H. Kirby, H. E. Mor- gan (captain), and J. Alexander; half-back—T. H. Hutchicgsand G. W. Shepherd; forward-G. Brown, E. Ellis, D. Evans, W. B. Gibbs, Peter Jackson, J. L. Lawday, G Matthews, and Tom Morris.— Hibernians: Back—G. Clements (Barry); three- quarter—W. Harris, D. Fitzgerald, Spillane, and W. Flynn; half-backs—U. J. Godwin and A. M'Carthy forward—W. Walsh (Yorkshire), W. Walsh (Cardiff Harlequins), S. Cravos, R. Guinea, J. Burke (Cardiff), B. Driscoll, E. M'Carthy (Grangetown), and M. M'Carthy (Cardiff Northern). Referee, Mr W. M. Douglas. Time was called with the score standing -Hibernians, three minors Penarth, two minors.- The match was, undoubtedly, one of the most keenly fought games ever seen on Penarth ground, although the play was not so pretty as it might have been. The Hibernians certainly had the bett of the game, for they were attacking for quite three parts flf the time. Gibbs for Penarth, as usual, stood out head and shoulders above his confreres in the open, but it is questionable whether he does his fair share of the work in the tight. Shepherd played a fine game at half, and brought off some good runs. Garrett was about the best of the home three-quarters, but at times was rather selfish. J Alexander, who turned out for his brother on the right wing, played a fairly good game, and did not make any serious mistakes. PENARTH v. BARNSTAPLE. Played at Barnstaple before a good gate on Satur- day last, Penarth winning by three goals (one dropped) one try, to one goal one try. H. Alexander was absent owing to an injury. M. Toller and Thomas were out of the home team. The game was fast and open from beginning to end. The scorers for Penarth ware Shepherd (2), Gibbs (1), and Garrett dropped the goal. PENARTH V. DEVONPORT ALBION. This attraction took place at Plymouth on Easter Monday, the Albions winning by a goal and a try to two tries. Each team had a strong combination in the field, the only notable absentee being H G Alexander, the right wing flyer of the visitors. Quite 10,000 spectators were present. The Penarth men were :— Back-C T Kirby; three-quarter back-H Kirby, R M Garrett, H E Morgan (captain), and W G Lambert; half-back—G W Shepherd and T H Hutchings; forward-G Brown, E Ellis, P Jackson, T Morris, D Evans, J L Lawday, G Matthews, and W B Gibbs. CATHAYS v. BARRY. CARDIFF AND DISTRICT UNION, MALLETT CUP, FIRST ROUND. Played before a large crowd of spectators at Barry on Saturday last. Cathays won the toss, and elected to play with the wind. Hughes kicked off against a strong wind at 4.20. A shotatgoal by Smith (Cathays) went wide, a minor being the result. Some give-and- take play, in which the Barry and Cathays halves were very prominent, was confined in the Barry 25 for the next ten minutes. Hamlyn here ran in with a easy try, which was converted. Play was now trans- ferred to the Cathays 25, when some very fast play was witnessed. Half-time score—Cathays, one goal one minor; Barry, nil. Phillips kicked off, and for a few minutes play settled down in neutral ground. Some good play by the Barry forwards brought operations to the Cathays 25. Here it remained for the next few minutes. A mark by J. Davies resulted in a minor. Good play by the Catbays forwards brought operations to the centre, which were again trans- ferred to the Cathays 25. with some very near chances of scoring. Final score—Cathays, one goal three minors Barry, one minor. BARRY V. FERNDALE. Teams representing these Rugby clubs met at the Buttrills Field, Barry, on East.r Monday, and had a spirited match, with a result that Barry scored a try and the visitors three minors. OTHER MATCHES. T.V.R. LOCOMOTIVE v TRAFFIC.—Played at Penarth on Good Friday morning, and after an in- teresting game, ended in favour of the Locomotive by one goal, one try, to two tries. The tries were obtained by Griffiths and Joe Angove for the Locomotive, and Joe Williams and Sidford for the Traffic. Beasley,for the latter, played a sterling game. The proceeds of the gate will be devoted to the funds of the Railway Servants' Orphanage. INTERESTING FANCY DRESS FOOTBALL MATCH AT BARRY. LADIES V. GENTLEMEN." On Easter Monday the members of the Barry Town Association Football Club held a "Ladies" v. Gentle- men Fancy Dress Match at the Castle Field, Barry. The affair was excellently managed, and a great deal of public interest being, of course, attached to the match, the event was a great success, not only in re- gard to the attendance but also as regards the players, and the game throughout caused much amusement. The teams were as fol lows -I- La(lies- Goal -keeper, Ethel." H. Lorrimer. Back-" Daisy Bell," C. Munn; and May," D. Thursby. Half-back—" Oh Eliza I" E. Holmes; Nancy Lee," E. Griffiths; and Martha," G. Blackwell. Forward—Right wing, "Dorothy," W. Walters, and Louisa," J. Taylor; left wing, Mary," H. Roberts, and "Judy," E Dayies; centre, "Mrs Grundy," J. Jenkins (captain). Geiatlem,-ti -Goal- keeper — C. Trathen, Sailor boy," Back — J. Barratt, "Clown;' and G. Williams, "Football Costume." Half-back—R. Davies. Mephistopheles W. Griffiths, "Clown; and D. Lester, "Country Joskin." Forward — right wing, A. Lester, "Country Joskin," and W. Buckland, "Nigger"; centre, P. Howarth, "Nigger II left wing, W. Hood, "Sailor Boy," andrW. Beddoe, "Football Costume." The referee was Mr H. Pearce, and the linesmen Messrs J. Parry and J. Woodward (Barry District A.F.C.) About eleven o'clock the merriment commenced, "Mrs Grundy," starting the ball. "Louisa" received, but G. Williams returned it up- field, and Howarth secured and gave to Hood, and after some give-and-take play Howarth scored. The Ladies did not give way to tears, but started the ball again, Martha receiving. That lady centred, and Dorothy scored with a shot, which she described as too lovely for anything," this goal being scored about five minutes after the one by the gentlemen. Fol- lowing the re-start. Hood registered another goal for the Gentlemen," half-time arriving with the score— Gentlemen, two goals Ladies, one goal. After the customary and welcome rest, during which the Ladies" were vigorously fanned by their sterner friends, Howarth commenced the play by kicking the ball to Hood, but, owing to a mis "-kick, Louisa took advantage and secured it, and passed to Martha," who scored with a fine shot. Howarth started the ball again, and the play was decidedly in favour^ of the petticoats," Mrs Grundy,' May," and Judy in turn adding to the Ladies' score. The Ladies" had the best of the play, but the Gentlemen" also played a nice game, a hope being expressed all round that a similar match would again be held at no distant date. Final score:— Ladies," five goals If Gentlemen," two goals.
¡ THE CONTINUITY QUESTION To the Editor of the "BARRY DOCK NEWS." DEAR SIR,—" A. E. P. Ross and his co- religionists are quite welcome to sneer at me as the Undivided" gentleman, if it so pleases them regarded as an argument in support of their case, this expression is no worse than their poor attempts to mislead your unwary readers. Before the correspondence closes, it is my inten- tion, with your kind permission, to write a general review of the controversy so far as it has proceeded, but at present I just wish to notice a point or two alleged against the Church of England. It does not in the least help A. E. P. Ross when he remarks that his Grace the Archbishop of Canter- bury qay-v he ix successor to St Augustine the 1; syllogism," all the same, remains vicious and bad. Of course. I knew that Romanists pretend that Dr Benson is not Archbishop of Canterbury. Indeed, it gives me great pleasure to be able to admit that even one statement of A. E. P. Ross'" is true. I can say this of the one in which he states that at the Reformation" priests became ministers it was full time that they should do so, and acknowledge their duty to God's heritage, no longer fleecing, but feeding, the flock. Next in order, let me say that" A. E. P. Ross'" notion about papal infallibility becomes more and more amusing. No doubt Peter, to whom our Lord said Get thee behind Me, Satan," and who also denied our Lord thrice, needed a special praver for his evidently weak faith. So. too, Mr Editor; I believe that our Lord now prays that" A. E. P. Ross may be converted, and that his faith may not fail in the end, and that He also intercedes with the Father for each of us, according to our needs. If Dr Salmon is well-known to Catholics as a misrepresenter of their religion, why are their mighty men unable to point" out the alleged misrepresentations ? I beg to say that the law of God's Church becomes the law of God and remains such until rightly and duly altered by a general council of the whole church. A. E P. Ross'" explanation of the proceedings of the general council at Jerusalem is not very ingenious and certainly not ingenuous. It seems to the that the average Romanist will go any length out of his way to twist truth into falsehood. I don't see what the fact that the Anglican branch of the true Vine observes the festival of The Conception of the Virgin" has to do with the Romish error of "The Immaculate Conception." We honour the blessed virgin as the mother of our Lord, but we know well that she was never more than a woman. although a chosen vessel of God. My parochial duties prevent me writing more to-day. Permit me to thank the gentleman who so kindly sent me information respecting the evil effects of Romanism in Mexico.—Yours in the One Faith, A PRIEST OF THE UNDIVIDED CHURCH.
BANK HOLIDAY ROWDYISM AT CADOXTON-BARRY. A WOMAN BELABOURED WITH A ROLLING PIN. A well-known house in Holmes-street, Cadoxton- Barry, was the scene of a gross and cowardly outrage on Easter Monday, when a woman named Annie James, a boarding-house keeper, was dangerously assaulted by a marine fireman who lodged there. During the evening a row broke out in the house, and William Stevenson, a burly young fellow, picking up a rolling pin, belaboured Annie James on the head with the heavy weapon. Mrs James, who was severely wounded, fell to the ground in a state of unconsciousness, but was picked up and taken to Dr O'Donnell's surgery, where the injuries were attended to. Information of the occurrence was given to the police, and, Acting-sergeant Ben Davies arrested the man at the Wenvoe Arms Hotel, and had him conveyed to the police station, where he lies awaiting trial on Monday next at Penarth, there being no sitting whatever of the magistrates of the district this week.
OPENING OF BARRY AND CADOXTON CONSERVATIVE CLUB AND INSTITUTE. The formal opening of the Barry and Cadoxton Conservative Club and Institute took place on Thursday afternoon, the 22nd instant, the premises, which consist of two commodious build- ings in Holton-road, Barry Dock, having been most conveniently and elaborately fitted up for the purpose.

Marsh, J. Evans, .See. The premises consist of reading and assembly rooms, billiard room, card rooms, refreshment rooms, etc.. each of which has been fitted up in a manner which testifies to the degree of liberality and enterprise which have distinguished the energetic services of the committee, and the number of members already exceeding 300 shows that the club and institute have been inaugurated under very favourable conditions. The actual opening will take place about a month hence, when the following noblemen and gentlemen are expected to be present and deliver addresses :—The Right Hon. Lord Dunraven, the Right Hon. Lord Windsor (the lord-lieutenant of the county), Mr R. Forrest, J.P. (the ex-high-sheriff), Mr J. M. Maclean (the Conservative candidate for Cardiff Boroughs), Sir Morgan Morgan, and others.

I THE BARRY BURGLAR ON HIS TRIAL. SEVERAL CHARGES AGAINST THE ACCUSED. PRISONER COMMITTED FOR TRIAL. Considerable public interest was centered in the trial of the notorious Barry burglar at the Barry Dock Police Court on Thursday last. when William Henry Lewis, engine driver on the Barry Railway, and residing at Park-crescent. Barry, was charged on remand—before Major-General Lee and Dr Neale — with breaking and entering No. 22, Windsor-road, Barry, and stealing therefrom a gold watch and chain, value Z8. on the evening of Sunday, the 8th instant, the property of Edward Jenkins, engine driver. The evidence of Ann Jenkins, the wife of the prosecutor, and Sergeant David Weeks was read over.-Harry Walford Thomas, hairdresser, said he lodged with the prosecutor. On the 18th instant he remembered Mrs Jenkins going to chapel about 6.20. There was no one else left in the house, and when he went out he locked the door. He came back about ten o'clock. There was another lodger, but he went to Ferndale on the previous Saturday !.nd returned on Monday.—Sergeant Weeks repeated his evidence given at Penarth.-Prisoner asked Sergeant Weeks if he took the chisel produced from the box on the engine he was driving, and on receiving a reply in the affirmative, said every engine on the Barry Railway was supplied with one. He picked up the watch and chain, he said, near the Wesleyan Chapel.-Sergeant Weeks said the impression on the drawer which was forced open corresponded with the chisel in question. The chisel also fitted with other impressions on the door. The right boot of defendant corresponded with the impres- sion found in the garden, and of which a. plaster of Paris caste had been taken. When arrested defendant said II I don't know anything about breaking and entering.' I found the watch and chain by the Wesleyan Chapel, and that daft' Jack was going down the road at the same time, but I don't know whether he saw me do so.-In answer to the charge defendant said he knew nothlncr of the affair. The second charge was that in which rhomas Brown, of 12, York-place, Barry, lost on the 4th December last a pair of field glasses from his house. The burglary, it was stated, was com- mitted early in the morning, and the glasses were then taken. The field glass produced and identi- fied by Mr Thomas Brown as his, was found at prisoner's house.-Henry Mole, foreman on the Riorry Railway, said on December 4th last defen- dant was working on the Barry Railway as engine driver, and at 5.30 on that morning he drove a train to St. Fagan's. Defendant was then living at 21, Park-crescent, Barry.-Sergeant Weeks said he remembered the 4th December, when a com- plaint of the burglary in question was made to him. Last Sunday night he searched defendant's house, in connection with the other burglary, and found the field glasses produced. He charged defendant with stealing them, and he replied he bought them for 3s .,d of a sailor.—Prisoner said in answer to this charge that he was not guilty. The third charge was that of breaking and entering 30, Castle-street, Barry, and stealing therefrom a gold scarf pin, £ 1 2s lid from a purse, with a silver bracelet, pearl handle knife, Jubilee shilling, and a silver coin, and white silk tie on the 5th ult.-Elizabeth Makepeace, wife of Evan Makepeace, said she left the house on the date named, at 4.30 p.m., when she locked the door, but the window was slightly open. On returning she found the house had been broken into, and the articles in question stolen.—Mr E. Makepeace, engine driver, 30, Castle-street, the husband of the previous witness, also gave evidence.—Police-constable Henry Hill deposed to receiving intimation of the burglary. He ex- amined the house, and found it had been ransacked. On Sunday last he was at the house of prisoner, and on one of the landings, hidden in a ventilator, he found the brooch, bracelet, and knife, which were identified by Mrs Makepeace as her property. -Sergeant Weeks stated he assisted in searching the house, and found the scarf-pin in a drawer. Prisoner stated to witness that he did not steal the articlas, nor placed them where they were found. On Monday, prisoner admitted to witness of breaking into the house of Makepeace, but not the other places. The accused was then committed for trial at the Quarter Sessions on the first and third charges, the other charge being dismissed. Prisoner was removed in custody. The Quarter Sessions will be held next week.
PENARTH AS A MARINE SIGNALLING STATION. THE INTENTIONS OF LLOYD'S REGISTRY AND THE PENARTH PIER COMPANY. At a meeting of the Cardiff Chamber of Com- merce held on Wednesday last, Mr J. B. Ferrier presiding, a letter was read from Mr H. Hozier, secretary of Lloyd's Registry of Shipping, stating that his committee would be most happy to *zsist in any way to establish at Penarth a system for receiving signals of wind bound vessel in the roads in order that the same might be reported by tele- graph to the Cardiff Chamber of Commerce. He presumed the Cardiff Chamber would be prepared to pay the cost of the telegrams, and also a small charge for this service. He also asked whether it was the desire of the Cardiff Chamber that the Barry Dock authorities should also have telegraphic informa- tion of vessels lying in the Penarth Roads. In a letter, dated March 13. Mr Hozier wrote that the committee of Lloyd's had already approached the Admiralty with the view of obtaining permission for the coastguard at Penarth and Barry to signal wind-bound vessels. He suggested an annual subscription of £ 10, besides the cost of telegrams, in order to pay expenses. On the 14th of March, Mr Hozier wrote :— I beg to inform you that since I wrote to you upon the subject of signalling at Penarth I have received a communication from the Admiralty in which I am informed that the Admiralty regrets they are unable to meet our wishes in this respect, and the coastguard could not be allowed to signal at Penarth. Under these circumstances it appears to me that the only course we could pursue would be to establish a Lloyd's signal station there, but before bringing this matter forward for consideration I should be grateful if you would be so good as to move the chamber of commerce to allow me to be informed of 1 he amount they could contribute towards the maintenance of such a station if Lloyd's were to establish one. -The President said he was afraid they would be unable to do what Lloyd's suggested with regard to any contribution. They had no moneys to vote for work of that kind. It was a matter more particularly for the shipowners.—Mr Bisset thought the local members of Parliament should be requested to ask why the coast- guard could not be used to signal wind-bound vessel. He moved a resolution to that effect.- Colonel Guthrie. in supporting the motion, referred to a case recently, where he received a report of a vessel being damaged in the roads, and it took him twelve hours to find out whether the report was correct. He should like to know what the coast guards did for the public—Mr J. N. Kesitell thought the proposition did not go far enough. He believed it would be better to adopt a system whereby all vessels arriving in the roads might be signalled.—Mr E. Handcock, junr., said the Penarth Peir Company intend erecting a signalling station at the end of the new pier, which would be com- pleted by June, and, if arrangements could be made, it was their intention to signal all vessels.- The proposition was then agreed to.

DESECRATION OFTHESABBATH AT PENARTH. TIMELY PROTEST BY A LOCAL MINISTER. A WELL.DESERVED REBUKE FOR SUNDAY GOLF PLAYERS. The Rev Isaac O. Stalberg, at the Stanwell-road Baptist Chapel, Penarth, on Sunday evening last took for his text Galatians iv.. 16. Am I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth ? The reverend gentleman, in his strictures upon the golfers, said that the interrogation in his text opened up a wide and very important phase of a great question. It was high time to leave off garnishing and varnishing, and to deal plainly and outspokenly; albeit actuated by the purest motives and in the spirit of love. Evil might change its forms, but must be dealt with nnflinch- ingly. The previous Sunday he witnessed some- thing of which he had only recently heard-the gentlemen of Penarth playing golf, at least they wore the garb of gentlemen. Now. he asked seriously and anxiously, was this kind of thing to go on without protest, without denunciation? Such doings would cause Penarth to stink in the nostrils of the Principality. They must, therefore, protest, and that with earnestness. He contended that departures such as this were the outcome of the doctrine propounded by Canon Thompson, and those of his school who hob-nobbed with the members of the Sunday Society. If Canon Thompson was gratified by the development or evolution of this germ, then let him remember that God was dishonoured, and that a stone of stumbling was placed in the path of many. He did not charge Vicar Thompson directly with this breach of decency, which was a disgrace to that suburb but with all possible emphasis, he declared that the tendency of the canon's teaching was in the dixection of Sunday disorder, demoralf- sation, and desecration. If Sunday picture galleries, why not Sunday golf ? And if not golf, why not cricket ? Why not football ? Why not coursing ? Why not hunting ? Why not open the flood gates and let in the full tide of pleasure now ? Someone would answer, Well, why not ? His reply was, because they wanted to liberate men from the devil's clutch and help them to live a nobler and higher life than that of the self-seeker and pleasure hunter. How does this Sunday golfing bear upon the question of the influence of the classes upon the masses ? Last Sunday their children, on leaving Sunday school, saw some of their neighbours and townsmen returning from the golf ground. They had been engaged in teaching them to prize the Sunday and use it aright, and these players, by their example, told them to sell it for a game of golf, or whatever they might fancy. INTERVIEW WITH MR BTALBERG. On Monday a Press representative waited upon the Rev Isaac O. Stalberg in reference to his sermon the previous evening. Asked what prompted him to take the course he did, the rev. gentlemen replied, "Because the occasion de- mands it. I said distinctly last night I do not charge Canon Thompson or anybody else with this, but I think the teaching of the doctrines of the Sunday Afternoon Society tends to irreligion." Then you are a believer in Sunday observance in all respects ? Yes, certainly." How long has Sunday golf playing been going on at Penarth ? I should think about six weeks. It was going on for some weeks before I heard anything about it." Do you disapprove of the game ? No, I don't disapprove of golf generally. The game is right enough, but it is the time and place and influence. That is the point of view from which I look at the matter. I would not even object to play golf myself, but certainly not on Sunday." Do you attribute Sunday golf playing to the action of the Cardiff Sunday Society All I say on that point is, the tendency of that teaching is in this direction, and any develop- ment I look upon as the outcome of it." Then you don't believe in picture galleries being open on a Sunday ? "No. I look upon a movement of that sort as decidedly anti-Christian, and, getting a little lower, anti-religious. It is a substitute for that which should tend to the elevating and uplifting of men. I am very fond of pictures. I suppose I draw upon them for illustrations in preaching more largely than anything else, and I never miss seeing a good collection if I can help it." Then what harm is there in it ?" "Simply because it is keeping people from places of worship and from services they might otherwise attend. The people who visit these picture galleries are, as a rule, those who could see them any other day in the week. I don't think that working people care for them. Where you find a couple of intelligent working men who take an interest in a picture gallery you may find fifty who don't." Who are the people you complain of "Well-known residents of Penarth, who ought to know better. I suppose they are the gentlemen of Penarth—at all events, they are people of posi- tion. Only Sunday week these goiters were coming by with all their kit as the children were coming out of Sunday School. Such proceedings tend to counteract any influence or work we have been doing with the children. They want to know how soon they will be old enough to give up Sunday School and go and play golf. I did not say a word on Sunday night that I want to re- tract, but the result I know will be that I shall be looked upon as a crabbed creature, censurer, puri- tanical, and all the rest of it. They will pile up epithets of that sort, but it is all nonsense, and they know it is nonsense. I object to the game on Sunday because it is Sunday, and the influence is evil distinctly. "Then you don't charge Canon Thompson with being: the cause of all this 2" I look upon Canon Thompson as the leader, as he has given his countenance to the Sunday Society, and he must be prepared to bear the brunt. He is a good man, but I think he is very much mistaken on that point. There is no animus about it, because I don't know him even by sight, and I don't suppose he knows me. It is only the attitude he has taken that made me refer to it." WHAT OFFICIALS OF THE GOLF CLUB THINK OF THE MATTER. Some ot the officials of the Penarth Golf Club have also been seen. and asked if they desired to make any reply to the strictures of Mr Stalherg. While admitting, however, that golf was played on Sundays on the Penarth links, they declined to enter into any controversy with Mr Stalberg. Meeting Mr Arthur Ingledew, the secretary to the golf club, after his return from Porthcawl on Tuesday evening, a Western Jlail reporter entered into conversation with him aboutv the latest Penarth sensation. It is true, I believe, that golf playing has been indulged in on Sundays on your club links 1" remarked the reporter. Yes," replied Mr Ingledew some of the club members play on Sundays." "And do the officials of the club sanction Sun- day golf playing ?" They offer no objection to it, and for this reason, that the gentlemen who play on Sundays are those who are tied up in business all the week, and have very few opportunities of indulging in the pastime except on Sundays." Another official informed our representative that nearly all the Sunday golf players at Penarth were Roman Catholics, who indulged in the re- creation after they had attended the morning services at their churches. In an interview which one of our representatives had with Mr Frank Mason, the captain of the Penarth Golf Club, with reference to Sunday playing, that gentleman, in answer to an inquiry as to whether the club recognised the playing of golf on Sunday, said the committee was small, but the committee, as a committee, and he as captain, did not recognise the Sundayipiaying. There were a small number of members, probably bachelors, who were disposed to spend the Sunday on the links. In all probability they were shut up in offices all the week, and, as a. result, indulged in the pastime on Sundays. If they did, there was no Sunday labour involved, no catering, no professional players, and no "caddies." The members who played went to, the links of their own accord, and, as members, they had a right to go. He (Mr Mason) dis- approved of the Sunday play, and said it was his intention to call a special meeting of the club, within a few days for the purpose of discussing and coming to a desisiou upon the matter.
IMPORTANT RATEPAYERS' MEETING AT PENARTH. OPPOSITION TO THE CARDIFF CORPORATION BILL. On Saturday evening last. at Andrews' Lesser Hall, Penarth. a ratepayers' meeting was convened, in order that the local public authority might be- able to assign their reasons for determining to oppose the Cardiff Corporation Bill of 1894. Among those present were Messrs T. Bevaik, (chairman of the Local Board), II. SneB, D. Morgan. Councillor W. B. Shepherd, G. Pile, J. W. Morris. Edgar J. Evans, J. W. Mayne, G. A. Birkenhead. R. Handcock, Evan Ellis Roberts, Geo. Elkington, J. Y. Strawson. T. Wallace, Allen, Andrews, G. W. Norris, C. W. Williams, and Charles Tonkin,—Mr Bevan explained that the Bill proposed the laying down of a sewer varying in diameter from 6ft. to 12ft., from Canton to Penarth, a distance of 2 miles 178 yards. There would be a storage capacity in this sewer of Sf millions, equal to 24,000 tons, and it was proposed at ebbing tide that the sluice or trap-doors be opened, and the crude sewage would flow down- and be deposited on to Penarth beach. With aa easterly wind blowing the danger to the public health would be accentuated, but leaving thatv out of the question, the Bill sought powers which, if granted, would most seriously effect the welfare of Penarth. He, therefore, moved that thet Meeting express itself in favour of the Board's opposing the scheme and permitting the cost of such to be taken out of the general dietriet. rate.—Mr Snell seconded, saying that Lord Windsor also intended opposing. If the Bote Docks Bill passed as well it would be a verv serious thing indeed to them.-Several others sup- ported, and the motion was carried.

W.. is the author of a Popular Guide to the Parish Councils Act" (Local Government Act, 1894, 56 and 57 Vie., chap. 73), and the handy manual being obtainable at the moderate price of three-pence, a copy should be in the hands of all who feel an interest in this new form of municipal government. The publishers are Messrs Farring- don and Co., Fleet House, 39 and 40. Shoe-lane. London, and the work deals explanatorily with the principal features of the Act. rendering it a. serviceable and reliable work of reference on so important a subject. In the introduction the author states The Local Government Act. 1894, piloted through the House of Commons by Mr Fowler, is the second volume of the great system of municipal reform commenced by Mr Ritchie and the late Conservative Administration." Under the new Local Government Act plurality of voting is abolished, and one vote, and no more, will be given to each elector of the new councils. The foundation of the Act is the parisii meeting. From the parish meetings the councils derive all their power, and powers are given to the parish meeting which the councils do not possess. However small a parish may be. the parishioners are endowed with the power of local self-government. If a parish has over one hundred inhabitants, it can petition the County Council that it shall have a council of its own, but whether it has over one hundred inhabitants, or net. it can apply to the County Council to be grouped with other parishes of small size, so that they may have a council between them. A desirable feature of the new law is that an addi- tional class of voters have received the inunicipat franchise. Lodgers, the service franchise, all elections on the Parliamentary register, and women householders of the municipal and county burgess roll, will be the future voters to elect all local representatives. Vicars and churchwardens: cease to have any control by right in secular affairs, and the vicar of a parish will no longer preside by right over vestry meetings. There shall be no ex-officio or nominated guardians. T()- be qualified, a person must be a parochial elector in the Union area, or have resided for the preceding twelve months within it: and no person is to be- disqualified by sex or marriage from being elected or being a guardian. The expression District Council shall include the council of every urban and rural district, and the chairman of Sk district council, unless a woman, or personally disqualified by anv act, shall be, by virtue of his office, a justice of the peace for the county iot which the district is situated.
