The Education Bill.

The Education Bill. Whatever may be the merits of this great measure which passed its first reading on Monday night, there can be but one opinion as to the speech delivered by Mr Birrell in introducing it, and that is that it will rank among the very finest speeches ever delivered in the House of Commons on such an occa- sion. The Bill dealt with some thorny and difficult problems, and Mr Birrell proved himself to be thorough mister of his subject. The Bill is an honest, skilful, and pains- taking endeavour to solve a difficult problem. The main proposals are that no public money is to be spent on denominational instruction, and that attendance will be compulsory oIly during the hours of secular teaching. Other features of the Bill are that it adopts the system of devolution, abolishes religious tests for teachers, and will give full opportunity in all the schools of the country to teach the children the religion of their parents. It also provides for a Council of Education in Wales. It may be strongly opposed, but there is very little doubt it will be carried through the House with large majorities. Vesuvius Ablaze.
