Ir Chamberlain on Welsh Disestablishment. Mr John Morgan, Editor of the Aberystwyth Obberver, has received the following- important ex- pression of the views of the Liberal Unionist leader with respect to Welsh Disestablishment Highbury, Moor Green, Birmingham, 31st January, 1895. Sir,âI am directed by Mr Chamberlain tu acknow- ledge with thanks the receipt of your letter of the 25t\} int., and to say that he entirely agrees with the spirit of your article in the Aberystwyth Observer. Disestablishment in Wales must come, and the only question is whether it shall be accompanied by a just treatment of the Church in regard to its funds. This can be secured now by the Unionist Party, and Churchmen would be wise if they were to urge their leaders to devote themselves to this part of the subject. If, on the contrary, they meet the present agitation with an absolute non possummus, they may probably find that when it is next brought forward the opportunity of a compromise will have been lost. The Welsh Church is entitled to liberal, and even g-enerous terms, and if, under these circumstances, it is freed from the connection with the State, it will, iu Mr Chamberlain's belief, rise to a position of influence and usefulness that it bclS never yet enjoyed. I am, Sir, Yours obediently, J tT JOHN WILSON. John Morgan, Eeq.
