LOCAL CRICKET. CADOXTON-BARRY 1st XI V. CANTON (CARDIFF.) This match was played at Cardiff on Saturday afternoon last, resulting in a draw. Garnett bowled out four of the Cantonians, while Thorn and Yorath returned the compliment to the same number of Cadoxton's six fallen heroes. Garnett scored 21 runs for Cadoxton, and Yorath 33, Evans 16, and Forman 13 for Canton. The following were the scores :— CANTON. J. Yorath b Garnett 8 L. Forman, b Garnett 13 B.

Cogan were assisted by the Rev S. Adams, (Ross), while Penarth were minus the Rev C. Brown, T. Higman, A. James, H. Field, and H. E. Morgan. Cogan were also short of two men-E. Lewis and J. Carpenter. Owing to the heavy rains the ground was very dead, and the wicket was essentially one for the bowlers, as will be seen from the scores. Fred. Morgan and R. C. Sill, for Penarth, and Alec. Stephenson for Cogan, bowled very successfully. With the bat, John Llewellyn, Spiby, (pro.) and R. Jenkins were most successful. The scores were:— COGAN. J. Ingleson, b Morgan 6 T. Lewis, b Sill 1 A.

LOCAL AND GENERAL NOTES. For I am nothing if not critical."— Ibid, Othello. SINGULAR INFANTILE MORTALITY AT CADOXTON-BARRY. Our obituary this week contains the names of five children, whose united ages only reach a period of two years and four months. There has been no adult death whatever, and this singular fact, we think, is one which calls for the notice of our medical authorities. Surely there must be some reason for these infant deaths. Is there any particular fever about ? 'BUS TRAFFIC TO AND FROM BARRY DOCK. That was a remarkably happy hit on the part of those local gentlemen who have conspired together to establish an omnibus traffic between Cadoxton and Barry and Barry Dock. The only difficulty in the way of a full reali- sation of the scheme is that the permission of the Barry Dock and Railways Company must be obtained for the use of the new private road by means of which Barry Dock can be reached from the places named, but the most sanguine hopes are indulged in that the com- pany will yield this concession when it is clearly explained to them that the movement is intended for the common weal of the neighbourhood. A petition, numerously and influentially signed, was presented to the company, at their meeting, held yesterday, and the result was anxiously awaited by all who have at heart the welfare of the district. Unless some means (like this project has in view) will be adopted to reach the sailors who come into Barry Dock, it is feared that the magnetic influence of Cardiff will continue to be a powerful one. Mr David Jones (of the firm of Messrs D. Jones and Company, Vere- street, Cadoxton-Barry), has been very active and successful in obtaining signatures for the petition. A TIMELY HINT FOR LOCAL TRADESMEN. There was much practical common-sense in the remarks made by Mr T. Higman, master of Barry Schools, at the meeting of the De- monstration Committee held last week, when he so strongly urged the desirability of adopt- ing some special means of inducing master mariners, &c., trading to Barry Dock to patronise the different trades of the district. The suggestion is a most comprehensive one— so much so, perhaps, that we cannot, owing to the exigencies of space, do it anything like justice this week-but much can be done, in- dividually and collectively, by the tradesmen themselves. We, therefore, commend the matter to their early and most serious atten- tion, for those who would be prosperous in the future of Darry Dock district—themselves must strike the blow." THE LEGO-MEDICO OUTLOOK OF OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD. Cadoxton and Barry will certainly not want for legal and medical talent. In addition to the different gentlemen who already adorn those professions in this district, we have, Messrs Parker and Company, of Newport (Mon.), who have just opened a branch office at Vere-street, Cadoxton-Barry and amongst the latter, Dr. Powell has come to reside and practise at Barry, while Dr. Lloyd Edwards (both of the latter gentlemen coming from Carmarthen with sterling credentials), swells the ranks of the medical profession at Cadox- ton, having taken convenient premises in Iddesleigh-street. Other solicitors and doctors are spoken of as being about to follow the example of the three gentlemen we have named. LOADING FACILITIES AT BARRY DOCK. It is a source of gratification to us to be in- formed that there are at present eight tips in a complete state at Barry Dock, and these are in full swing" of occupation every day. Several others are being rapidly pushed for- ward towards completion. HORTICULTURAL ARRANGEMENT OF LOCAL RAILWAY STATIONS. Anyone who is in the habit of travelling along the Barry Railway line cannot but be impressed with the noticeable taste with which the little floral plot in connection with the station premises at Dinas Powis has been laid out, and the skill displayed by the station- master, Mr G. Taylor, in its arrangement, is such as to invite emulation from the officials of other stations along the line. Besides being pleasing to the eye of passengers, it is an agreeable pastime to those in the employ of the company, and it affords means for the display of artistic taste. At Dinas Powis the little station presents a pretty appearance, and the flowers are well assorted and arranged. THE CONTRACTOR OF BARRY DOCK AND THE PANAMA CANAL. It is stated that Mr T. A. Walker, the emi- nent contractor of Barry Dock, has been offered a contract for the completion of the Panama Canal, but that the large undertak- ings which he already has in hand at Man- chester, Buenos Ayres, &c., have prevented his acceptance of the offer. This speaks well for the efficiency with which Mr Walker carries out the various gigantic concerns entrusted to him. A MARKET PLACE FOR CADOXTON AND BARRY. Many suggestions have reached us lately urging the advisability of a movement being set on foot for the erection of a market place for the Barry and Cadoxton district. Could not a limited liability company be formed with this object in view ? We think the scheme not only a practicable one, but we have no doubt that it would prove a profitable investment and a great convenience to the many thousands of inhabitants who are rapidly forming themselves intp the settled population of this neighbourhood. If this scheme were carried out, it would tend to localise the many hundreds, if not thousands, of pounds which find their way annually into other markets. This is particularly the case as regards Cardiff, and the more persistent we are in loving our neighbours better than our- selves, the more tardy will be the real progress which Barry Dock will be the means of effect- ing in relation to the immediate locality with which its welfare is so identical. A THREE-MINUTE BELL FOR LOCAL RAILWAY STATIONS. Inconvenience is often felt at the short space of time which the trains on the Barry line remain in each station, and as an amelio- ration of this difficulty it is suggested that a bell be rung three minutes before each train is due. This would be an evident advantage to those travelling along the line, and there is no reason to doubt that, if a request to this effect were made to the directors, they would supplement their present numerous facilities to the public by this desirable boon. At pre- sent, as a rule, unless intending passengers are at the station at the precise moment, their chances of catching the train are inevitably lost. The ringing of a three-minute bell is a practice on many lines, and there is no appar- ent reason why it should not be adopted by the Barry Company as well. BARRY HOSPITAL. The hospital which has been so successful at Barry for some years has just been closed, but two rooms in a house in Princess-street have been engaged, whereat persons injured at the dock works may be treated. This tem- porary hospital is again under the superintend- ence of Dr. Gore. OUR GROWING POPULATION. The population of Cadoxton-Barry is per- ceptibly growing. Houses are being tenanted as quickly as they can be built, business pre- mises are being occupied, and sites for addi- tional building property are being taken up with rapidity. If this agreeable state of things continues we shall have a very large and settled population in the great town to be "1 in a short time. THE COGAN DIFFICULTY. What has hitherto been described as the Cogan Railway difficulty will by-and-bye be known only amongst recollections of the past. As we have already stated, the through ticket grievance has beeto-' effectually overcome, and Mr John Cory, J.P. (the chairman of Barry and Cadoxton Local Board, and also one of the directors of the Barry Company), said only this week that through communication will ere long also be granted. We may take this as a certain indication of the sincere in- tentions of the directors towards the public. Recently, another convenience was granted in connection with the same line. Formerly passengers had to cross the road from one station to the other at Cogan and Penarth Dock, but this has now been obviated, for passengers may proceed along the platform at either station, via a footway which has been formed to facilitate communication between the two places. This is a sterling and appre- ciable boon, and only an earnest of more favours to come. THE LOCAL BOARD AND THE PUBLIC. It is evident that the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board is determined to withhold from the public certain information connected with the proposed infectious diseases hospital. In our correspondence column this week a rate- payer substantiates a suggestion made by us last week, that the press should be admitted into the committee meetings of the Board. As a contrast to this, what does the Board do? Why, even in the course of the public business last Tuesday, they ostracise the representatives of the press, and, as a consequence, withhold from the public information which is, to all intents and purposes, the property of the ratepayers THE SCAVENGER'S TUMBLE CART. Following up our suggestion last week, the medical officer of health (Dr. Neale) brought before the Local Board last Tuesday the matter of the horrid nuisance caused by the tumble cart being taken about the streets at an early hour in the evening, and it is hoped the board will now do their part, by fair means or foul, to insist upon the scavenger obeying the instructions of the surveyor.
ANOTHER DOCTOR FOR CADOXTON. This week another member of the medical fra- ternity has fixed upon Cadoxton as a place to establish himself in practice. Thejgentleman re- ferred to is Mr W. Lloyd Edwards, L.R.C.P., Lond., M.R.C.S., Eng. Dr. Edwards is a native of Carmarthen, being the son of County Alder- man Edwards, J.P,, who has also been a member of Carmarthen Town Council for upwards of 20 years, being Mayor in the year of her Majesty's jubilee. Dr. Edwards received his medical educa- tion at the London Hospital. At the commence- ment of 1884 he was appointed resident medical officer to the Carmarthenshire County Infirmary, and was subsequently elected one of the honorary physicians. Dr. Edwards' surgery at Cadoxton-Barry is situated in Iddesleigh-street. We wish him, and every new comer, great success and pros- perity.
A LARGE STEAMER IN BARRY GRAVING DOCK. On Tuesday the s.s. "Indramayo," with a carrying capacity of 6,400 tons, and 450 horse power, owned by Messrs MacVicar, Marshall, and Company, Liverpool, entered the Barry Graving Dock for the purpose of being coated with compo- sition, and general repairs. She is supposed to be one of the largest vessels that has been inside the Bristol Channel. She left the Graving Dock this morning to be loaded with ceal. It mnst be extremely gratifying to the directors of the Barry Dock to find that the owners of large steamers are so quickly recognising the superior advantages obtained for shipping at their dock.
ADMIRALTY APPOINTMENTS AT BARRY DOCK. The Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty have been pleased to grant commissions in the Royal Naval Reserve, as Honorary Assistant Pay- masters, to Mr Charles Baker, Mr H. J. Pockett, and Mr Charles Radcliffe, of the Board of Trade at Cardiff and Barry Dock, seniority to date from the 30th June last.

BARRY DOCK BUILDING SOCIETY. We desire to call the attention of our readers to an advertisement in another column announcing a public meeting to be held, next Thursday, at Cadoxton-Barry, to make known the advantages of joining a building society. The directors of this society have for more than a year been drawing up rules, getting them registered, and appointing a secretary, and they are now in a fair way to commence business in earnest. We note that the board of directors is a parti- cularly influential one, and the secretary (Mr William Thomas, auctioneer,) is a gentleman well fitted for the post, and one that will be sure to make the society a great success.

DEFENCE, NOT DEFIANCE. WE have not the smallest possible wish to avoid our share of public criticism, or even rebuke. We are a public organ-subject to the same ills as man in general is heir to, and liable to the same errors and inefficiencies as those in like situations to ourselves—there- fore, those who look upon us with a watchful eye-the keen perceptive eye of a guardian angel-have a perfect right to scrutinise our movements and expressions, and commend us for any merits we may possess, or blame us when at fault. The ring of applause en- circling the shouts of our many admirers had almost thrown us off our guard-we were beginning to feel that we belonged to the immaculate throng. However, evidently we are not. The reaction has come, and we are to-day bent low 'neath the gloom of des- pondency. Full of youth, of hope, of aspirations, and of dreams of ultimate success as we were, we are now prostrate with dis- appointment—a fell stroke from the mighty hand of Dr. P. J. O'Donnell has completely vanguished us, and not even the skill and genius of that medical gentleman can restore us to anything like our former selves. Then, as Cowper would say- Toll for the brave! The brave that are no more All sunk beneath the wave, Fast by their native shore Dr. O'Donnell is indeed a fault-finder "—he finds them even where they do not exist. Then-le brave des braves-acknowledging this, let us presume for a moment, if only for the sake of argument, to make an attempt, in return, at finding fault with Dr. O'Donnell for finding fault with us. Of course his remark at the meeting of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board, last Tuesday, that— The press had accused Mr Chappell of with- drawing from his offer, and he felt it very keenly "-we took to refer to the Barry Dock News, and the observation came, as Cousin Jonathan once said, Full smack in our face." We are not sorry that the Barry Dock News exercises so agitative an influence upon the minds of the Local Board members (as it manifestly didin connection with more than one subject on Tuesday), but we are sorry, and certainly do object, that Dr. O'Donnell should have been careless enough to so completely misrepresent the remarks we made in our issue of the 2nd instant, and unless he possesses some unique mode of logicising which we have never before heard of, he will, to say the very least of it, give us credit for being able to explain away the hallucination which he at present most unquestionably labours under. Dr. O'Donnell seeks to befriend Mr Chappell. We fancy we hear Mr Chappell say, in reply, 0, save me from my friends." What does Dr. O'Donnell say ? Let us repeat his remark: The press have accused Mr Chappell of withdrawing from his offer." Then comes the question, "What press Well, speaking locally, at any rate, the Barry Dock News is the only paper that has taken any trouble to look up the matter, and, as a consequence, we have no alternative but to don the tunic," and endeavour to defend ourselves against the rash assertion of Dr. O'Donnell. We have heartily applauded Mr Chappell's benevolent offer from the first, and felt that that philanthropic gentleman is deserving of the, best thanks of the public for his thoughtful gift, and so far from wishing to thwart his intentions, in our issue of the 2nd instant, we asked the question as to "what had become of the matter connected with the proposed erec- tion of seats on Cadoxton-Barry Common ? Did this typify any insinuation on our part of withdrawal by Mr Chappell ? We fail to see it. Then we said-" Have the philanthropic intentions of Mr Chappell been vetoed by the powers that be V This is explicit enough, in all conscience, to everybody (except Dr. O'Donnell) as referring to the powers that be" (meaning the lady of the manor), and not in the least to Mr Chappell. Is there any accusation of withdrawal here ? We trow not. If Dr. O'Donnell can point out to us more specifically as to what he is aiming at- presuming that he is not deluded by mis- apprehension --then we will unreservedly and unqualifyingly withdraw any remarks we may have made. On the other hand, if Dr. O'Donnell speaks in ignorance of fact, then we claim from him the same degree of frank- ness and courtesy as he may demand at our hands if he is able to satisfy us that we have thus erred from the path of prudence. Let the matter, therefore, stand sub judice. We are prepared to enter the fire, and fear not its effects, no, not even when stirred by Dr. O'Donnell
SOUTH WALES UNION BANK. As will be seen from our advertising columns, promoters of the above bank have decided to open a branch at Cadoxton-Barry. This is the third bank that has been opened here, and we trust it will meet with the same rfteasure of success that the other two have met. There is undoubtedly a marvellous future before the district, and banking faciities are as necessary in a neighbourhood as other businesses.

YOUTHFIFL HO-USE-BREAKERS AT PENARTH. A MEDLEY OF STOLEN ARTICLES. AN INDIGNANT PROTEST EFFECTIVELY REBUKED. THE CASE AGAIN ADJOURNED. The charge sheet at Penarth Police Court on Monday last was a heavy one, and Messrs Corbett and Trayes (as magistrates) had to endure an unusually long sitting. Amongs tthe cases was one in which Michael Carew and Thomas Collins, both aged 13, from Penarth, were charged on remand with feloniously breaking and entering the dwel- ling house of Mr Morgan R. Williams, Park-road, Penarth, and stealing therefrom a large number of artlclesi-Frederick William Dunn said that on t<iiU 31»>t of ♦Jtlly Wo- £ «*A. of Mr M. R. Williams, of East Cliff, Park Road, Penarth. The family were from home. He went to dinner about one o'clock, when the premises were secure. He returned about 2 o'clock. In the course of the afternoon he saw the accused climb a hedge out the garden. Collins was car- rying a bag. He caught them, and on searching the bag, found they had a bottle of claret, pocket inkstand, a bottle of pickled cabbage, blacking brush, a half-crown piece, pair of slippers (which Collins was wearing at the time), chain and whistle, antimacasser, metal bracelet, scissors, &c. He afterwards found that they had broken into the house, and stolen the articles therefrom. He recognised some of the articles as the property of his employer. -Cross examined by Carew: I saw you both getting over the wall.—By Collins: The .gate was locked.—Collins: It was not locked, was it Carew?—Carew: No. -Mr M. R. Williams then gave evidence of identity. He recognised the inkstand as his property and the silver brooch; he also thought the slippers were his, but could not swear to them. Tne house had been thoroughly ransacked, and was in great disorder when he returned on the day after the burglary. The half-crown belonged to the governess, the brooch to one of his children, and the claret bottle was the same as those he used. Most of the articles however, he could not indentify.—Mr Morris (the magistrates' clerk) said if the boys were com- mitted for trial, it would be necessary to be able to clearly identify the articles, especially those found upon the accused, otherwise they would get off. —The Bench consequently decided to further adjourn the case for a week in order to procure the attendance of Mrs Williams.—Collins' father said it was not fair to adjourn the case again, because it was already the third time for them to be before the magistrates on this charge, and he had been put in great expense by leaving his work to come there. -Mr Corbett: Are the boys out on bail?—Superintenent Wake: Yes sir.—Mr Corbett (to senior Collins): If your son gets into these mischievous and disgraceful proceedings he must take the consequences. The case is ad- journed for a week, but the same bail will be accepted.
A BATCH OF ORCHARD LOOTERS AT LLANDOUGH. APPLE-STEALING V ERSUS CHURCH- GOING. A GANG OF RESPECTABLE BOYS IN CUSTODY. Apple-stealing seems to be quite the rage just at present, and it was in a somewhat summary manner that the Penarth magistrates dealt justice out to the offenders last Monday. Messrs J. S. Corbett and V. Trayes had before them a case in which four as fine little British tars (clad in naval costumes) as ever were "clapped eyes" upon, named Sidney Scoff, aged 14; Albert Morris, aged 15; Frank Peters, aged 16 and Henry Gregory, aged 18 (the leader of the gang), appeared in answer to the charge of breaking into the orchard of Great House Farm, on' Sunday morning, and stealing therefrom a number of apples, the property of John Willi-im"P.C. Herbert Evans said on Sunday morning he was watching the orchard in question, and about half-past eleven saw the four prisoners getting into the same. They began picking apples from the trees. He ran in after them, and with the assistance of Mr John Williams, junior, caught three of the offenders (Peters, Morris, and Scoff). He subsequently caught Gregory in Grangetown, Cardiff. In answer to the charge the first three said nothing, but Gregory said he went in with the others, and had two apples, but when he saw the policeman he ran away. On searching them he found on Scoff two apples, on Peters seven, and on Morris fifteen, and they were worth about three pence. The boys got into the orchard over the hedge from the railway. There had been great complaints about apple stealing in the neighbourhood, and one side of this particular orchard had been completely stripped.John Williams, junior, corroborated the evidence of the constable, and added that about half the apples in his father's orchard had been stolen. He knew nothing of these boys.- Mr Corbett said he had seen the prisoners in Llandough the previous day.—Mr William Steener, shipping agent for the Marine Society, said he had shipped these boys, and had arranged to take them to Church on Sunday morning, but when he came to look for them they had gone, being led astray by Gregory. He had shipped many hundreds of boys from Cardiff and Penarth, and had never experienced any trouble with them before. If the Bench would deal leniently with the defendants he would try to ship them away from Cardiff in the course of the week.—The Bench said they were respectable-looking boys, but they must be taught to remember that they were not allowed to steal in this way, and must pay a penalty of 10s and costs each, or go to- prison for 14 days.
