SLINGS AND ARROWS. IBY A YEOMAN OF THE GUARD Although the Church and Tory party in the Ruthin Board of Guardians have not succeeded in preventing the Local Govern- ment Board from. sanctioning the appoint- ment of Dr. David Lloyd, Denbigh, as medical officer for, the Llanrhaiadf district of the Union, they have, apparently, been busily wirepulling behind the scenes. The fact that Dr. Lloyd has only been appointed for a year, and not for three years, as is customary, proves that influences have been at work. Although I should not think of stating that Tories as men, are underhanded, I have no hesitation in fsaying that as a party they are so. The most upright and concientious gentleman in his private life, will agree to most unworthy proceedings, when he acts with the Tory party. There is a distinct and separate code of morality for the Tory gentleman and the Tory poli- tician. What a man would not for the world do in his private capacity, he will readily acquiesce in, as a member of their party.' The remarks of Mr. Justice Grantham at the Ruthin Assizes, have brought to light some more wirepulling on the part of Tory and Church people, who seek with avidity any and every occasion to fill their otherwise comparatively empty Churches. Why should the Mayor of Ruthin, who is a Nonconformist, and the members of the Ruthin Town Council, the majority of whom are also Nonconformists, voluntarily perform an act of obeinance to the Church of England? For be it remembered, it is because it is the state church that some of the Judges attend it at Assize times. It is one of the attempts still made to prove that the state law and state religion are connec- ted. Welsh Nonconformists do not believe in a State Church. They ask that the church should be disestablished. And I venture to say, that when the Church of England in Wales is disestablished, then the great objection of Welshmen to attend this Church on State occasions will vanish. No one knows better than the Welshman the real connection that there ought to by between law and the gospel-a connection and unity of principles and objects, both striving, although by different ways, to benefit the human race.
