MARCH TO DONGOLA No one can as yet give any approximate idea of the results of the sad disaster that befel Italian soldiers in Abyssinia. The fan- atic dervishes have been thereby inspired with more fervour to continue their intended work of driving out the Italians altogether from their country. The latest unhappy feature of this terrible defeat is the fact that British soldiers stationed in Egypt have been suddenly ordered to advance towards Dongola, and consequently have another Soudan War star- ing them in the face. The alleged object of this expedition is to release Kassala, wherein an Italian garrison is now hemmed in by the Abyssinians.
CARDIGAN HONOURING L. H.JENKINS Mr. L. H. Jenkins, the newly appointed judge to the High Court at Calcutta, visited last Friday evening his native town of Cardigan, and had such a hearty reception that reflected no small honour on the residents of his native place. The streets were ornamented with all kinds of flags and colours, and in the evening almost every house was brillantly illuminated. Mr. Jenkins was accorded more than an ordin- ary welcome because he is proud of being a Welshman. When he began to speak on the platform, the people cheered so lustily that several minutes elapsed before their feelings of joy subsided. He thanked them very sin- cerely for the honour which they had con- ferred upon him and trusted that the bond existing between them and himself would never be lessened by any distance.
THE SHREWSBURY CONFERENCE The resolution passed last week at the Shrewsbury Conference to the effect that the cause of Welsh Intermediate Education should be controlled by a thoroughly Welsh rep- resentative body is bound to give material satisfaction to all those who have the educa- tional welfare of Wales at heart. It augurs well that the Welsh are already convinced that the success of their national systems must depend on the extent to which they truly respond to the wishes of the majority of the people. The worthy object of this proposal is to prevent the recurrence of any more Welsh institutions being managed by un- representative bodies, and by men often inten- tionally ignorant of the real wants of Wales.
DR. GETHIN DAVIES, BANGOR We regret to announce the death of the Rev. Gethin Davies, D.D., Principal of the North Wales Baptist College at Bangor. He died of cancer last Tuesday. Dr. Davies hailed from the neighbourhood of Morriston. His noble services will be sadly missed by his denomination. He was a great preacher and a good writer in both English and Welsh. He had a large circle of friends who will mourn his loss.
LIBERAL PARTY All devoted to the cause of liberalism should earnestly hope that the Liberal Party as a whole will not suffer through the slight friction that exists at present between the Central Liberal Association and the National Liberal Federation. Now is the time when all Liberals should encourage unity in their ranks and thereby recruit their strength for another future struggle. Let us hope that any present obstacles will soon be dioposed of, in order to pave the way for a better and stronger organ- isation of the whole Liberal Party.
FRANCE AND ENGLAND —— With increased troubles in Northern Africa, it is highly incumbent that this country should be exceedingly careful in not adopting a step that would rashly endanger the European Peace. Of course Egypt is the greatest hind- rance at present to a thorough understanding between France and England, though it is quite feasible that means might be adopted to get rid of that manufactured difficulty, and thus form a salutary form of friendship that would possibly conduce to the whole welfare of Europe. It is hardly necessary to observe that no two European countries have such common interests as France and England. A true alliance between these two Powers would then secure the invaluable co-operation of Russia.
REPRESENTATION OF LABOUR The Trades Unionists at Cardiff are some- what dissatisfied with the manner wherein labour is represented on the Cardiff County Council. They are now trying to remedy this defect. On all our corporate bodies, the working classes, forming the greatest single section of the whole community, should be justly and adequately represented. The special interests of labour cannot be efficiently fur- thered by those who have only a very meagre practical knowledge of this intricate question. All working men must decide upon a more combined form of action with the necessary object of giving a stronger expression to their rights, and of demanding those privileges to which they are entitled on the ground of fair play.
THE GOVERNMENT AND THE WELSH UNIVERSITY Upon giving the increased grant to the Welsh University, it was proposed by the Government that students of the University Colleges in the principality should henceforth matriculate and take their degrees at the Welsh University. There are in Wales some scholastic officials who injudiciously protest against this proposed restriction. However it rests mostly with the Welsh Colleges to make this newly given University a financial success by supporting its examinations in preference to those of any other examining body. Let us hope that the young institution will receive the cordial support, which it justly deserves from all Welsh students.
