JAMES, J.P., in a letter published in another column, calls attention to a matter of the greatest importance connected with the School Board election. He compares the proportion between the rateable value and the number of school children in Merthyr, Aberdare. and Car- diff. These figures are very interesting, and should be considered by all critics of the Board's financial record. Ianto Goch" discusses the rate question in a very lucid manner, and his dialogue puts the subject in a form that will be under. standed of the people. The Sectarians' trump card is the cry of economy. But that is only a pretext to bamboozle the electors. The real point is the maintenance of the present standard of efficiency. The champions of the sectarian schools seek to diminish that efficiency, to bring the Board Schools down to the level of their schools. The Unsec- tarians should strain every nerve to defeat this policy, and to make a determined fight for the educational welfare of the children of the working classes.
