Rector's Thank-offering Withdrawn. The Rev. W. LI. Nicholas (Rector of Flint) has written to the Flintshire Educa- tion Authority cancelling his offer to provide an elementary school to accommodate forty children in standard I. and II., in place of the present Flint Common Church School, which tho Board of Education had intimated would cease to be recognised after July 31st next. At the last meeting of the Education Committee the offer was accepted with thanks by 22 votes against 14. In his letter cancelling the offer, the Rector states he was grieved to read the account of the reception by as many as 14 members accorded to his offer to build a new school as a thank-offering on the com- pletion of his thirtieth year as Rector of Flint He had hoped the offer would have been welcomed the present juncture. However, he found that any school built by. him would be merely provocative of political strife and sectarian bitterness, and as he could not associate the idea of a thank- offering with feelings of hatred and un- charitableness, he now informed the Author- ity that his offer was canceled. He hast- ened to acquaint the authorities with this resolve, so that no one might attribute any delay to political reasons.
