THIRK were not as many young men in the educa- JWB meeting at Zoar Chapel, Merthyr, on Monday have been expected. The fact is the younger generation have not been per- ^•*ted with the principles of Liberalism as regards his question. A quarter Of a century- has passed 5 eince the Education problem has occupied the ?ri°u* attention of the country. There was a *fce struggle in 1870, when the Forster Act was j?*sed. Since then the question has not held a j^ioent place in the public mind. „ 'B forcing itself, however, to the front once ro^'i ^em&nds of the clerical party have Tl?"J country from one end to the other, tliif *ie Liberal Party now is to educate Th ^.c 'n tlie elementsof the education question, is (K ^'n8 fundamental principle we contend for Mi M *ver-v institution maintained bv public funds tie* i. •Ejected to public control. Representa- m*n "houW go with taxation. According to this scho°ls established for sectarian purposes J">ttld be supported by the sects controlling them. he eUcatioti of the children is one of those duties fttiU the State should discharge, untrammelled ? unhampered bv any sect whatsoever. This in other words, universal school boards, br VUimate g°al of Liberal policy. Such is the taW healthv platform on which all Liberals bv\e,U'eir stand.* The demands now put forward e«d t^er'ca^ Pal'ty must be resisted to the bitter C.l»iricai education, as the Rev. Hirst. Hollowell !ted out on Mondav, lias always and every- ,been R ^ilure. \ln Italy nnd Spain the °ols are in the hands of the priests, and those the only two Continental countries which do Push us hard in commercial competition. In r ? ,n<l I lye same shite of things prevails, with the ill?, that one clector out of every five is an eiate. Schools flourish most under popular "trol. The Established Church claims to have to the rescue of education when the State p *8 apathetic. Mr. Hollowell proved that the iu\erSe this was the case, and that the Church, AS it could, had hampered the State in it s to improve and develop the educational ginnery. "P. Daniel, in a verv impressive»speech, regretted present attitude of the Irish Nationalist mem- fs. Their action, he said, was ungrateful and Ju<*>nsistent. The Liberals of this country, at ^rrihle cost, had stood faithfully by them in their i'Atriotie efforts. But now when we require their they desert us, and go over to our eleri- j*1 opponents. Mr. Daniel deprecated rctalia- U.°u- We must continue to advocate the princi- Home Kuie because it is a just and reason- principle. Still the fact remains, as we have 'n°i'e than oncc pointed out, that the Irish members '3 doing all they can to alienate the sympathy of ^f'"erals and Nonconformists, aud to paralyse Rule enthusiasm.
