THE COWBRIDGE SCHOOL. In the House of Commons on Monday, Mr. Maclean snored that a. humble address be presented to Her Majesty to exclude the Cowbridge Grammar School from the intermediate and technical education scheme of the Glamorgan Town Council. Ho said the objection to the scheme was that it proposed to confiscate the revenue of a school which was regarded as a distinctively Church of England School. He did not propose to go into the details of the history of the school. It stretched back over a great many centuries. If the scheme became law it would prevent the school from remaining under the Church of England. Leoline Jenkins, who filled various public positions in the reign of Charles II., died in 1685 and left the bulk of his property to Jesus College, Oxford, subject to a charge of B450 a year for the benefit of the Cowbridge Grammar School. There could bo no doubt from the terms of the will that Jenkius, who in life was a staunch Churchman, intended that the school hould be exclusively a Church School. The history of this school showed that it hadalways belonged to the. Church of England, and it ought not to be torn away from that Church in order to be absorbed in thin now scheme for intermediate education in Wales. The Church of England was now in such a position that it naturally sought to retain what was its own. Church- men paid the bulk of the cost of the Board Schools, and for conscience' sake they taxed themselves to support their voluntary school- Under the guise of promoting national education violent hands were being laid upon Church endowments. He appealed with confidence to the House to take care that this valuable educationarcharity should not be snatched from the Church of England. Major Wyndham Qnin seconded the motion. He thought that the fact that there was and had been a close bond of union between this school and the Church in Wales had been fully established. It was most probabb that the foundation deed was lost or destroyed at the time of the Commonwealth, but without that, he contended, the actions and indentions of the founder and the terms of his bequest were sufficient to show the connexion between the Church and this school. Mr. D. A. Thomas contended tint this was not a Church school on the authority of the Rev. Edward Jenkins, who, he believed, was the prime mover in the agitation for the exclusion of Cowbiidge from this scheme. The opposition to the scheme really came from the Church brigade, a mere handful of elegy it was the creation of the joint Education Committee and had been prepared with the assistance of the Charity Commission and approved by tho Education Department. The locality were thoroughly in favour of the scheme, by which it wot.ld be immensely bene- fitted. The scheme made it obligatory on Jesus College, Oxford, to giN-e;0500 a year to this grammar school, and. in addition, it wculd receive JE600 from the general fund of the county- He appealed to the House not to throw over a scheme which had taken yews of the time of competent men to frame. Mr. Brynmor Jones (Swansea District) opposed the resolution. The House divided, and the numbers were For the motion 160 Against 45 Majority for 115
