THLRSDAY, FEURUARY 13. 1896. I NOTES &_OOMMENTS It is possible—nay, pvol-a-bie—that the complication created by the Tramway Company will develop cu linos wholly unexpected by the public. That is, assum- ing the company does not accept tlw agreement as modified in its favour by tiie Corporation. When all the facts su-e nuuio known, we predict that there will be IJnt one feoiing in the town respecting the coiiduct of the company, and that, despite the impression of excessive trustfulness on the p:irt of the committor produced by the first a'i>io!incen)out of the siuldett char.ge, the ultimate verdict will hoitl tiie com- mittee practicaliy blameless. _.n The defenr-e of the latter will not con- sist in the contention that a binding agreement v. a; imnosrfibie unt:i Parlia- mentary salt lion of the Bid had been obtained, fur that, is obviously absuvit.. Binding agreements contingent noon powers being obiaine-.i fron: Fa: uament cr sanction front ratepayer^ or, m the case of companies, from siiareh /iders, are made j nearly tn try day. It wouid be a line state c; f things if tr^visiona! agreements ui himling force could not be made. The case of the committee rrsts upon firmer ground than this technical absurdity thai i tiie fcatgain struck needed parliamentary saiict'Oi, to g-^ It vaifdity. Far from plead:' that there was a 1"r to an agreement binding on both parties until the Tramway Bdi had b«eu pudsed the committee will, we have reason to boiiave, contend tMat in a: living at a settlement at a c-oiiterenc*, and in foruially corouiunicating the terms 01 the satin* to the directors of the tramway, aud in leceiving a. written acceptance of such terms, they effected an agreement which, ii not signed lA^ci s«al«d, ie yet a binding agreement -is understood in Jaw. It is troe that on j one side the sanction of the shareholders was au essential condition, as the approval of the council, tlw burgesses, and Parlia- ment was on the other, but since the repudiation emanates from no one of those part'es it remains an open question whether the agreement in its original form cannot be enforced against the comp-tny. The question is deemed sufficiently open, at ail events, to justify the Electric Light- ing Committee in submitting it to counsel in view of the conUngenoies that may arise. The Electric Lighting Committee, if they vindicate themselves, as they arc likely to do, from the imputation or short- sightedness, v/ill do so at the expense of theTramway Company's honour. It would appear as if the compatiy had treated the negotiations in a spirit so smart "—as the tjrm is understood in its less praise- worthy sense—that henceforward the Cor- poration will have to be exceptionally careful in dealing with it. Should the agreement fail through and tild Biii he withdrawn, and assuming that the matter does not culminate in an action to enforce the repudiated bargain, we may expect a struggle commenced in which the absence of sentiment will be as marked on the one side as on the other. The possibilities oi this has probably not wholly escaped the attention of the company, which we gather from inquiry is not in quite the helpless position generally imagined. The Corporation can compel it to place the tramway in a state oi efficiency, and t j enforce penalties of £;j per day against it in respect of every section deemed separate in the legal sense for unrtasonable delay in com- plying with the requirements. It has been a ruined that the company is not in a j position to carry out tiie necessary lepa.rs, j and that failure to do so will place tne tramway at the mercy cf the corporation. But is this so l" vYou!d the company be entitled before complying with the require- menls. to demand from the corporation an undertaking that the lease shall be renewed whett it expires, or the property purchased by the oorotigii ? Is it the fact that the r.rivace Act ci Parliament gives ilia com- i pauy the option of re-leasing the tram- j ways for at least :21 years alter sale has bcea effected, compulsory or other- wise, on such terms—should mutual j agreement prove impossible—as may be determined by a referee selected by the Board ui Trade h These are points certain to arise should the Bill be withdrawn. Sow, granting that the company is in possession of the privileges outlined in the foregoing, it is not difficult to foresee how it can avoid some ot the consequences of evading a bargain made in good faith by the Electric Lighting Committee. The necessary capital for restoring efficiency lo the Tramways can be obtained by the sale to the Mumbles Railway Company of the valuable running powers now enjoyed over the liue of the latter. The gross receipts j derived by the Tramway Company from their Mumbles traffic amounts to over £4,000 a year it is the most remunerative of their traffic, since the royalty paid to the Mumbles Company would scarcely suffice to pay the cost of maintaining the line. The rumours which have bean in circula- tion the last day or two pointing to a desire on the part of the Tramway Com- pany to break away altogether from the Corpoiatiou scheme doubless owe their origin in some measure to the belief current in some well-informed circles that the Corporation io not the only body disposed to treat for the purchase of the tramways, and especially of the run- ning powei 3 possessed over the Mumbles Rai iwav. We might ge, further, and. say that some people are convinced that, the 1 running powers, if not already bartered, are well on the way of passing away from the Tramway Company—for ;■ substantial consideration, of course. However this may be, the members of the Council wiil have a solid backing if they firmly resist the fresh demands of the Tramway Company, especially if they adopt the course of frankly disclosing to the public the events which led up to this unexpected complication. The disappoint- ment, inseparable from the temporary j abandonment of the scheme after the stout1 fight made for it, will naturally be keen, j but better that than capitulation to demands which ought never to have been J made. -+-
j At the Queen A Hall meeting Mr. Asquith | wa-% expected to deliver it formidable assault upon the voluntary schools, but the force of facts constrained him to temper I his cutves with blessings, lie cundhlly oonfes.-ed the services v/itich the voluntary system has rendered to ihc country in the past and the importance of preserving its work in the future. i entirely disclaim, the said, any spirit ot hostihty to the work of the voluntary schools. They include, after all, the majority of the e.emoutaiy schools of the country, and they have in attendance within their walls a majority, uoz a large one, of tlie children. They have been erected and maintained at a very considerable expci.so of money, and by a large devot.on of time and zeal for which no tribute of gratitude and of praise could be too high. The educational work that has been chcie. aud that is b^ing done to-dnv. by our voluntary schools, is work wis.li which it is almost, imposs.b'e lor os, ass < nation, to <lispeu.>e.' No'- did 1\1" Asquith deny, in express j terms, that tiie voluntary seuools are entitled to furthcr-linanciai aid. He con- j tented himself with ins.Sv:ng un-t.he tw i j conditions that the new subsidy shad lead to a raising and not to a lowering of the standard of educational effic.ency, aud j that the rmciole oi "local control" Hhdt be introduced. The supporters of the non-boam schools will readily j accept the first of t';c-.e conditions. They have already, in spite of the disabilities under which they labour as compared, with their rate-aided rivals, succeeded in giving i oractuaily as sound au education as the average Sell- o! Hoard, and the concession of their pr ibent demands v, id enable them to extend and improve their methods. iTho whole history of elementaty ulnca- | cation in England shows that, as a Liberal j Vice-President of the Committee of Council admitted, the clergy are the best j friends of education, and jir Asquith may rast assured that the managers of the voluntary s^hool-i wiil use auy increase f the Government grant wisely and well. It requires sonte audacity to suggest that a clergy led by men with the record of ilie j Archbishop of Canterbury and the Bishop of London are leas anxious for the spread' of education than nndenoraiiiationalists! of the type of Dr. J G. Itogers and Mr. H. P. Hughes. On the other aand, Mr. Asquith's demand for the trocluction of local control" must be aet; with unswerving opposition. It mug- be resisted not only on financial grounds, since local instead of imperial control cannot propeiiy accom- pany a Parliamentary grant, and on educational grounds, since our experience of small school b0:t:ds has shown that "lccal controls disastrous to educa- tional progress, but, above ail, because it strikes at tho very heart of the voluntary system. Tiie schools nave been built and administered, and to a. large extent maintained by the voluntary efforts of those who wish to secure definite religion^ teaching for the children, and to hand vhem I over to the control of persons of any religion or none wouid be to take away the reason of their existence. Churchmen, si iman Catholics, and Jews will alike tell Mr. Asquith that the acceptance of a I subsidy on this condition would be propter vitom vicendi perderc. caustts, and that it would destroy the system with whose work he liiraseli says that it is at most impossible for us as a. at most impossible for us as a nation to t'ispcnse. Mr Asquith, being a Scottish member, must know that in Scotland denominational education is, as Mr Baifour pointed out in his speech at Bristol last Monday, practicaliy universal, and he will hnd it no easy tasktc convince Parliament that his own countrymen should he deprived of rights which are cheerfully accorded to his constituents .North oi the Tweed.

FOOTBALL KOTES. -4- [BY I THE KELT."] "The Brothers .Tatties will have a turn later on," SurfmarkedouecitheCouuty Club men after Tuesday night's meeting. Let us hope so. A member of the County Committer remarked at the close of Tuesday :i- ht's meeting that it was a great mistake to have picked Pearson for the county. TheCita.morgan pac-k picked to play against Lancashire are a heavy lot. There a man amongst them who cannot turn the scale at twelve and a-half stone. The qualification ef Clitf Bowen to ploy for G lamorgans:; i re is stated to rest on the assumption that the brilliant Scarlet three- quarter was born at Moiriston. But was Chii born at Morriston ? One of the first duties of the .Swansea, club ought to be to secure proper representation on the County Club Committee, it is most absurd to suppose that the An Whites will receive justice until this is done. The departure of Mr Bryant aud the indisposition of Mr Gwyuu has rendered the situation very awkward now that teams are being selected a:;ainst Lancashire, Yorkshire, and Devonshire. Why Pearson was selected in front Of such a sterling player as Cordon is one of those thicks a t'eiiov, can't understand. "Forward writes:—Some allusion was made '.ii this column yesterday by the "Kelt" to Badger's injury in the Aberavon match last Saturday and also to myself, I now vvafft to make myself clearly understood on the pi.int. Ifc is not a very pleasant subject to write about, and what, makes it really unpleasant is the firm conviction I hold that the accident was ¡' caused by rough play, to put. it mildly. There is not an atom of justilieation for two men rushing at an opposing player from a distunes of 10 vards after he had kicked tiie hull. Anyhow, it was hard lines on poor, unforcuuate Badger, and when I met him on the Aberavon platiVrm on Saturday evening -almost doubled up with tbe terrible pain of his injury, I asked myself, What, other man is there who would put up with halt' the number of accidents which this man has received during the lust half-dozen this iiiai has received during the lust half-dozen seasons! And ail for the sake of maintaining jhe fuütinll traditions of his native town. HI: is a bLen, little fellow, and no mistake about it. That cruel mauiiug n Saturday, however, seemed to have knocked all the sprit out of him,'>ar.d he looked downright sad aud dejected when 1 spoke to him on Saturday night about piayiug football again. "No, I shall never play atjaiu." he said with a signilicoiit shake of the head, and in a manner which left no doubt as to the meaniug ot hi" words. Reverting to the actual accident I may say that Badger is convinced that he was the victim of rough piav, and I know the Llanellv man well enough to vouch for this-ile is too good a sportsman to make false accusations against another player unless he stauds en a lirm footing ami is satisfied that he has right on his ¡/ side. So much for Badger. A few of the other players have to be reckcmed with as well. Tiie majority of them make no secret of their determination never to play at Aberavon attain. The reasous are obvious. The players say that they were handled with a lot 0l unnecessary roughness, and to that they very naturally object. What gives point to their objection is the kind and, considerate way m winch Aberavon has been treated by the Llarieliy Club. 1 am told by a Llaneliy committee man that, in granting Aberavon two fixtures on their own ground this season, they were animated solely by a desire to help Aberavon to clear away I the debt which, is weighing so heavily on their shoulders. Tttere should be no roughness after that, eh

Alderman David Harris is one of those optimists who believe that there is a greater future in store for Swansea than there is foC Cardiff. May his shadow never grow less. Swansea Canal, which is J7 miles Ictil and has 36 ioclts, was commenced by the Duke of deaufort in 1794. It was first opened as far as TycenoI, Morriston in 1788 and higher up the ai ley aboui 1801, Mr Elliott, ef the Cottage Homes, was congratulated ail round when the charge of assault against him was dismissed. A con- viction wouid have been a very serious thing for a mau in his position. The Llangyfelach District Council decided to have the water of a analysed. Just as the motion was being put one member was heard to murmur that whisk v was an excel- lerii thing for killing microbes. As an instance of rapid telocrranhing it may bo mentioned that Air W. H. j/reece-- the gentleman who has just reported on the Swansea scheme—-once sent atalegram from London to the Cape and received an answer in 24 hours, Ex-A!der.MQ Chapman is a dark horse in municipal matters at present. But you wait a bit. He says he is going to look after his business for a year. That seems to mean that there will bo ructions some time uear the next November election. Madame Paiti, during her round of engage- ments iu the United btates, was in receipt of £ 800 for every concert placed upon her programme.

One of the Llangyielach district councillors was sketched pt the last meeting, and the picture handed round. It was remarked that no one need wait for photographs from South Africa in order to sea what President Kruger was like, for the resemblance to Oom Paul was marvellous. This is the third anniversary of the Daily Post's b'rthday. The paper cnHse out with a dirty face en that memorable occasion, it liaa washed its physiognomy since that time, and is believed now to be in its right wind and exercising some influence for the public weal.
