Welsh Disestablishment Close By. 10 the Editor of the Carmarthen Weekly Reporter, SIR,To me, as a Welsh Churchman, the Disestablishment aud Disendowmeut of the Welsh Church is close at hand, if we are to read the signs of the times. Let us take a glance to the diocese of St. Asaph. What do we see there ? Do we see the Person of the Prince of Peace prevailing in the hearts I of Welsh Churchmen ? No, I say, but wars and rumours of war. Christianity has inspired mankind with glorious anticipations of its ultimate moral achievements, but all of it has fallen on barren ground in the above diocese. Nothing has pained me more than the assertions and, contradictions, by." ministers of the Gospel in the dailies of Cardiff! If a poor layman had a finger in the pie, what an object of pity he would be with these servants of God If laymen had a voice in the government of the Church (which they ought to have), this wrangling would soon be put down, and it is high time that the Archbishop of Canterbury stepped in, and put down these disgraceful proceedings. When the editor of the Standard reads the Cardiff dailies for this week, he will not be so bouncy as he was on Saturday, and say "that NVales has risen to the occasion/' and that the Church of England in Wales is not likely to be exposed to any further attack just at present of a serious nature but, if she were, she would have a position to fall back upon which is growing stronger every day." What is her position to-day in the diocese of St. Asaph ? The very persons who gets the loaves and fishes of the endowments wrangling ar.d quarrelling What a pity that the great printing establish- ment of the Welsh Church at Lampeter hath not its door open If the fight at St. Asaph is severe, we shall, sooner or later, have a fiercer one-" Laity versus Cleric âanent the Church Press in Wales. There again there is nothing but rumours of war. Yours, &c., A DISGUSTED CHURCHMAN.
