THE GIRL, THE MOTHER, AND THE MAN. MORALITY QUESTION BEFORE GUARDIANS. INTERESTING DISCUSSION AT LLANELLY. An application was received at the, meet- ing of the LianeLiy Guardians from a woman no? resident in M?rthyr for the custody of her daughter, who is an inmate of the Work house. The relieving officer of the Merthyr Union, .vho had been asked to report as to the suitability lIt the home, stated that the house was and woLi-kept, but the mother cohabited with a man siflice her husband left her. On that account he could not recommend the Guardians to send the girl there. Mr. Elias Da vies: The only objection is tha,t the mot-her cohabits with a man. In other respects the home is all right' The Chairman (Mr. Wm. Neviil) Is not that a fatal objection? Mr. E. Davids Not, Lil my )I)j D) ori- Mr. T. Jones: Certainly it is. Rev. D. Davies: We should consid,er the question of morality. VI r. E. Da vies Is this a more immoral art than the living with the first man, who was the legal husband. He abused her shamefully. The man who at present main- t a "g her looks after her properly and treats her as a man should treat a woman. She cannot, legally go through a | form of marriage with hjn. In my opinion th first was the more immoral union. Thp Chairman: It is against the law of the la-nd. fr. E. Davies: Tt, may he. Rev. D. navies: It is also immoral. "FLIPPANT AND IRRELIGIOUS." Rev. Trevor Jones Hear, hear. Rev*. D. Davids pro-Fading. characterised <]? statement of ??' Elias D?vies a? nipp?nt. a.nd irrfI,Ri(,tis Tl- ?oa-rd should not for a rn.?m?nt I.OleTat such MJiti- ments. For i man to coba-bit with a woman WHS against the laws of the country and against morality. Mr Elias Dal, e-, I am quite unmoved. If it is against the law of the land it is use less moving a resolution. The husband lived with the woman and used her shamefully and was allowed to go OJ], There, was no objec- tion to that. Now that the woman ha« met i roan who treats h,,r well she is considered immoral. In other words because the womsn ha s not the means tf) apply for a. divorce a.nd marry the man who cares for her they a,re both, dubbed dirty blackguards. Rev. D. Davies â We have nothing to do with wha.t occurred before. Their present state is immoral. Rev. Trevor Jones: Hear. hear. Rev. I). Davies You cannot condone. Mr. W. B. Jines I agree with the Rev. D. Davies The conduct of the woman is immoral. Rev. D. Davies Quite. Rev. Tro\or Jones moved that the girl be not allowe d to go to her mother, and the Rev. D. Davies seconded. Mr. E. Davies I am sorry that the few words of mine should have raised such a storm. The Vicar may have made a nasty gibe at me. I consider I have as much right to express my views in this room as the Vicar or anyone else. He accuses me of being flippant, hut I differ from him. This is a matter tha,t will oome before the country more in the future. This poor woman can- not take advantage of the law of the land because she is unable to get the money for a divorce. Rev. D. Davies It is no use dis-i ussing the matter. Mr. E. Davies When I get up and give my vibwg I expect to be treated properly. He did not jump up when anyone attempted to give an opinion which he disagreed with. He was as much an upholder of morality a,1I any prea-cher. or anyone else in the room. It was decided not to allow the girl to go and live with her mother.
