of his neighbourhood, and is an experienced and practical gentleman. It is alleged that the Nonconformist pulpit was once more eligaged,in this fight at Cwmamman. No sooner is a religious service over in these chapels than an active canvass is set on foot for a School Board Election. Nonconformist p aces of worship are indiscriminately used for a manner of meetings, from a solemn prayer meeting to the rowdy penny reading and political clap trap. Too often do we see congregations treated to a seemingly earnest and fervent appeal for brotherly love and meekness, with a prayer uttered with profound feeling of reverence only to be rudely followed with all the vehe. mence of political partisanship. The minister and the deacon, while engaged in their reli- gious observances, impress one with the belief that they are quite incapable of taking any part in party wrangles and fights for supre- macy on School Boards and County Councils. But no sooner are the few minutes devoted to this outward show of religion over than the same men enter, if possibl er 6 earnestness into these fights, and besmear their opponents with all manner of dishonour- actions and motives. It is gratifying to find that the most intelligent amongst them gra- dually begin to realise these facts, and leave p.eir tormer assooiates to join the Established ^ourch. We sincerely congratulate the Con- servatives of Llandilo for their successful efforts in returning their able and esteemed candidates, despite the fierce opposition of their Radical friends.
