To the Editor. Sin,-—I would feci obliged for a small space in your valuable paper to call the attention of your readers to one or two points in connection with our Treharris candidates. First of all we have Mr. W. M. Evans, a young gentleman who was at one time a pupil teacher, but for some reason best known to himself he gave up scholastic work and became a grocer. On one occa- sion a public meeting was held at Treharris to select a candidate for the School Board. The Rev. W. Jonea was "elected by a very large majority, hut Mr. W. M. Evans, notwithstanding this, hecame a candidate, as the Independents voted for him. In threo years the Independent-1, disgusted with the narrow sectarian actions of Mr. Evans, withdrew their support, and he was amongst the unsuccessful. But again he appeals to the same people for their support. On what grounds I cannot tell. Then we have Mr. Henry Davies, a workman's son who has succeeded bv energy and perseverance to come to the foremost rank in the teaching profession. Hii school gained the much-coveted distinction of lieing exempted from examination one year, receiving at the same time the excelbnt merit grant. No greater honour could bo gained for a school. For years he acted as secretary to many of our local insti- tutions, refusing at all times to accept any fee for so doing. His salary, as secretary to the "Library, he handed to the funds of tho Cardiff Infirmary. Although not desirous of public honours, he was returned unopposed to the Board of Guardians, but afterwards retired in favour of a Labour candidate and now, at the express wish of the labouring classes, he has consented to become a candidate tor the Merthyr School Board. This Board was never more in need of experienced practical men at its deliberations, and now, w hilst all sections of the community are crying for a reduction of rates, what can be more desirable than to return one conversant with every detail of educational work to the Board ? I do not wish to say a word against ministers or tradesmen being on the Board, but I really believe that one of the travelling staff of our South Wales University College would be a distinct gain in the direction of efficiency with economy. He refuses to pledge himself to any political lines, but it is hoped that he will, at an early opportunity, publicly express his views on educational questions. Yours, &c., EDCCATIONItST.
