THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 27TH, 1896. ^nk. case for a Welsh museum was laid before the Iloixso of Commons 011 Friday. Mr. Alfred gliomas led the way w ith a rattling good speech. Mr. Herbert Lewis followed then canie Mr. Maclean, throwing in a trood Mord ior Larditi as the locale of the museum when it conies a brace of knights kept the ball rolling, Sir John Llewelyn and Sir Osborne Morgan the man from Shrews- bury au,i \jr. Herbert Roberts came after, and John Gorst replied on behalf of the Govern- ment. Sir William Hareonrt, speaking as a Welsh Illettil)cl., and Sir John Lubbock wound up the d"bate. Not a single speaker questioned the justice of nles* claim to a aliurc of the (*ovcrinncnt» ,nuseuni grant. Scotland receives £ 17;0(Ki a year, .111d Ireland 1:31,000. At present Wales gets nothing. Yet Wales is a country bristling with obJccts which ought to be kept in a national museum. The educational value of such an in- stitution need not be dilated upon. Sir John rorst raised no objccttoJl oil the merits of the case. Ho only 11 leaded for delay because AN ales had uu recognised •Mini* -d. to sill)- «idise a. museum, 1 if locality of which the people "f NN ales had not decided upon. 'L'hat is a difficulty IiQh is not insuperable. When there ig a pros- pect of the grant being obtained it will not take it? long to give the museum a loCal habitation and a Oauic, A GOODLY portion of the time of public bodies is taken up by the reading of the minutes of previous meetings. In order to save this time, the clerk of the Mountain Ash District Council has suggested that the minutes be printed, and a copy supplied to each member. Then the minutes could be taken as read. The suggestion is an excellent one, and all local bodies might give it their consideration.
