fath ysgwyd ar unrhyw genedl erioed o'r blaen. Y mae y tafarndai wedi cau yn y Gogledd. Dywedai un gwraig ty tafarn na ddarfu iddi dderbyn ond dwy geiniog trwy yr Wythnos, a'r rhai hynny oddiwrth bolisman. Yr oedd bechgyn dysgedig o goleg Rhydychen wedi llosgi llyfrau y Rationalistic Press. Yr oedd yna ddegau wedi eu hachub mewn cyfarfodydd gweddi yn y trens. Beth oedd y Diwygiad ? Dynion wedi dod i siarad a Duw ac a'u gilydd trwy eu calon. Yr oedd yna ormod o siarad trwy y pen wedi bod. Mewn un cyfarfod yr oedd yna saith cenedl yn cael eu cynrychioli, a phob un yn deal] iaith y galon. Dywedai merch leuanc yn Llandudno Junction y buasai y merched wedi dweyd llawer am yr Iesu oni bai yr Apostol Paul. Credai ef (Dr. Phillips) fod yr Apostol wedi cael ei gamddeall, ac mai cyfeirio at wragedd oedd yn cweryla yn yr eglwys yr oedd. Nid oedd ond dydd y farn ddangosai y Daioni Wnaed Gan y Merched. Ganddynt hwy yr oedd wedi clywed y gweddiau mwyaf cyfoethog. Onid oeddynt hwy yn Llun- dain yn teimlo yn falch fod cenedl fach fel cenedl y Cymry yn debyg o siglo y byd, os daliant atti. Ar derfyn anerchiad Dr. Phillips torrodd y gynnulleidfa allan i ganu "Dyma gariad fel y moroedd" ac emynau eraill, a chanwyd gyda dwysder mawr am beth amser. a llais menyw oedd yn arwain y dyblu gan mwyaf. Y Parch. J. Howell Hughes, Bala, a ddywedai fod yn amlwg fod y peth" wedi cyrhaedd Llundain. Vr oedd ef yn cofio Diwygiad 1859, a gwelodd rai oedd wedi aros yn edrychwyr ac yn feirniaid trwy yr amser yn marw yn yr un cyflwr. Fe aeth y llifeiriant heibio heb gyffwrdd a hwy. Hoffai ein gweled fel cenedl yn cael em sefydlu ar ein huchelfanau. Y Parch. T. Davies, Treorci, a ddywedai fod dyddiau wedi gwawrio pan nad oedd cyfrif amser. Yr oedd ef wedi cael y pum' mis goreu gafodd erioed. Yr oedd gwerth dyn yn cael ei deimlo, a'i achubiaeth yn cael ei brisio. Yr oedd arno ofn colli y peth wrth siarad am dano; anghofio gweddio Duw wrth feddwl am y geiriau. Annogai i'r swyddogion cael ei ysgwtio o'r neilldu pan ddeuai yr Adfywiad. Diweddwyd y cyfarfod gan y Parch. Justin Evans.
CHURCHMEN AND THE SCHOOLS.
CHURCHMEN AND THE SCHOOLS. Activity at Carnarvon. An influential section of Church people at Carnarvon are displaying a courageous spirit in Meeting the demands of the local education authority in respect to repairs to the Voluntary schools in the town. The requirements of the county authority involved an expenditure of about £ %oo. Last Monday, the day upon hich the final notice of the authority expired, Und the managers short of something like £600 to complete the work. That evening they to discuss the situation, when it appeared at Mr. Lloyd Carter had, in the course of a day or two, secured promises of close upon ^200 to meet the outlay. Testing the feeling of the supporters of the schools as to the fate ^hich threatened the schools, Mr. Carter found r- Lloyd VV. G. Hughes prepared with a sub- caption of £ 50, while Mr. Councillor Newton, an anonymous donor, and Mr. Carter himself Jj;Ch promised £ 25. Mr. Morgan Lloyd ^21, j^rs- Roberts (Maesinala) ^20, Mr. G. R, ^ees and other smaller sums. Lady urner and Mr. Charles A. Jones have also J^niised their assistance. Mrs. Watkin hams, the wife of the Bishop of Bangor, will t00rtly convene a meeting of Carnarvon ladies £ i (Lr^an^se a bazaar towards the schools, and the fro ^as Promised a substantial contribution str^ ^entral Diocesan Fund. On the t rength of these promises the managers decided to COlirnunicate to the local education authority m 11 thingness to comply with their require- not 'S aS earty as possible. The managers are abl'ln an^ Wa^ disposed to question the reason- less of the requirements.
Notes from South Wales.
Notes from South Wales. (From our Special Correspondent.) Worthy of Record. The present Mayor of Cardiff, Mr. R. Hughes, J.P., has now had the satisfaction of being presented with a pair of white gloves to com- memorate the fact that there were no cases for the magistrates to try, for' the third time, since he has occupied the civic chair. There is no doubt that the morals of the great Welsh port are improving. Still, there is an immense amount of work yet to be done in the same direction, as anyone who knows the place is aware. Quite True. v I notice that the Rev. Ben Evans, Pastor of Tabernacle Welsh Congregational Church, Barry Dock, in the course of a recent sermon, said, while he did not depreciate the desire on the part of persons to decorate the graves of departed friends with flowers, he strongly protested against the custom whereby people utilised the Sabbath to make a show of it, as many were doing on Palm Sunday. All sensible people will agree with the reverend gentleman. The Maid of Llangollen. It may not be generally known amongst the readers of the LONDON WELSHMAN, that the Maid of Llangollen," who inspired Charles Matthew's muse, was the mother of Mr. Frank Edwards, the genial M.P. for Radnorshire. I am reminded of the fact in recording the recent death of Miss Harriet Edwards, pro- prietress of the Hand Hotel at Llangollen, sister of Mr. Frank Edwards, and, therefore, daughter of the Maid of Llangollen." By the way, Miss Edwards, although an hotel pro- prietress, was President of the Women's Temperance League for many years. Horse Racing. Up to the present day, horse racing has not flourished to any great extent in Wales. True, there are a few small racing events in different parts of the Principality, but, the Welsh Derby, or the Welsh Lincoln, and Kempton Park, have still to be established. A desperate effort is being made, however, to establish big annual races at Ely, a suburban district of Cardiff, and amongst the attractions of the present Easter gathering was what was described as "The Welsh National Stakes of 500 sovs." The races are run in the interests of betting pure and simple. Fortunately, they have not been very successful up to now, and it is to be hoped that non-success will continue to dog the gatherings. The Aliens Bill. The Education Act of the Government is almost universally hated in Wales, and the policy of Protection will find very few supporters in our little nation but, there is no doubt that the Government's Alien Bill will be received with a great deal of approval by numbers of Liberals, in addition to Conservatives. In North and Mid Wales there are practically no aliens, but, in Glamorganshire, they are con- siderable, and are rapidly increasing. There can be no objection to the genuine foreign workman who comes over here, but it is about time that there should be restrictions put on the dumping of the lowest class of Polish, Russian, and German wastrels in South Wales. These are the men who do the sweating. In Cardiff, there are scores of these aliens who do tailoring and other work for a mere pittance, whilst a large percentage of the crime-officially

UNO Y BALA A THREFECCA.
UNO Y BALA A THREFECCA. Yng Nghymdeithasfa Chwarterol Gogledd Cymru a gynhaliwyd ym Mrymbo yr wythnos o'r blaen, bu ymdriniaeth ar y pwnc o uno colegau y Bala a. Threfecca. Cyflwynodd pwyllgor a bennodasid i ystyried y mater ei adroddiad, yn yr hwn y dywedid mai barn y bargyfreithiwr, Mr. Bryn Roberts, A.S ydoedd na byddai y draul o gario allan yr uniad ond ychydig. Nid oedd unrhyw rwystr cyfreithiol ychwaith ar ffordd uno. Byddai yn angen- rheidiol gwneyd rhai cyfnewidiadau yn y gweithredoedd, megis tynu allan y geiriau Bala" a'r "Gogledd," ond a thybied fod y Cyfundeb yn cyduno i symud y Coleg o'r Bala i Aberystwyth, ni roddai y cyfnewidiadau hyn fawr o drafferth. Ond wrth gymeryd pobpeth i ystyriaeth, awgrymai y pwyllgor ohirio ystyriaeth bellach o'r mater. Ac a hynny y cytunodd y Gymdeithasfa, gan roddi fel rheswm mai annoeth codi y pwnc i fynu tra y mae brwd- frydedd y Diwygiad mor gr)f yn y wlad.

recorded as Welsh (save the mark !)—is com- mitted by the same class of men. In Swansea, a short time ago, a destitute Polish alien applied for outdoor relief, and the Glamorganshire ratepayers are supporting a number of alien lunatics at the asylums. It is all very well to talk about "free and open England," but this cry is liable to be carried too far. Aberystwyth Town Council. If the ratepayers of Aberystwyth were really aware of the damage that is being done to the reputation of their town owing to the recent disgraceful proceedings at the local Town Council, they would take steps to defeat the obstreperous section of councillors when the next elections take place. The vulgar display of personalities has disgusted hundreds of people interested in the welfare of the town, and the Town Council has now the unenviable reputation of being one of the noisiest public bodies in the British Isles. Welsh Holiday Resorts. There was a large influx ot visitors to the various Welsh holiday resorts at Eastertide; in fact, an old inhabitant of Aberystwyth informs me that it is many years since he remembers so many visitors in the town at Easter, as he has this present year. This is a good augury for a record summer season. There is no doubt that Aberystwyth is much better advertised at present than has been the case. The publication of local items from the town in the holiday column of a paper like the Daily Telegraph is a par- ticularly good advertisement, and the official illustrated souvenir has proved of greatusefulness. At Llandrindod, likewise, there was a large concourse of visitors, and, in this instance, also, a prosperous season can be looked for. I further learn that Barmouth and Aberdovey witnessed good influxes. A Great Welshman. A recent issue of the Daily Mirror contained an appreciative notice of Sir Alfred Jones, a native of Carmarthenshiie. The writer states that Sir Alfred is continuing his career as The Colossus of the West Indies." His latest achievement is to secure the contract to carry the West Indian Mails for his steamships, the Elder-Dempster Line. Every detail of his busi- ness is in his own hands. His Welsh collieries, from which comes the coal for his fleet, his oil mills, from which comes the oil for their machinery, and numberless other undertakings, are guided by him. As for work, he does as much every twenty-four hours as two ordinary men would do in two days A few years ago, Jamaica was on the brink of ruin, now she is a flourishing Colony, with his steamers regularly bringing her produce direct to England. By the way, Sir Alfred offered Mr. Evan Roberts a free holiday at Jamaica.
