WELSH SUNDAY-SPH00L UNI0N The fifth annual musical festival of tbe Cardiff Welsh Sunday-school Union «aa held Wednesday at the Tabernacle Chapel, the Hayes. His Honour Judge Gwilym Williams, pfee had been an- nounced to presIde, being unavoidably detained at Swansea by quarter sessions businesa, tbe Rev O. L. Roberts, Cardiff, was vetted to the chair. There were present Professoif jRoberts, chairman ot the union The Revs T. T j Jones, W. Francis E. Thomas (Cochfarf). Captain Hughes, Mr William Davies, Mr W.jjjaea (treasurer), Mr Beriah G. Evans (bon. sec.), and a large number of prominent Cardiff WelsbnHua. The chapel— the largest Welsh place of wombip in the town- was crowded. Mr J, Price Powell acted as con- ductor,and Mr Roderick Williams as accompanist to the united choirs, numbering some 40C voices. The CHAIBICAN gave a ISTOORT R&utn< of the excellent work tbe Union had done in the past. He pointed out that in Cardiff the bilingual difficulty was experienced in tbe Sunday Schools **8 »o was in the aay schoclsof the Welsh-speaking districts, for here tbe children wbo were ac- customed to speak English were taught in the Sunday Schools in Welsh. Be impressed upon parents the duty of employiog Welsh as the home language in a town bke Cardiff, where the surroundings were so essentially English. It was only by maintaining Welsh Sunday Schools that Welsh Churches could hope to hold their own in districts subject to Saxonizing influences, and the use of the Welsh as the home language would materially facilitate the work of the Sunday-schools. (Applause.) At a later stage of the proceedings the Chairman incidentally referred to the wøfk done in connec- tion with Sunday-schoois by Mr Edward Thomas (Cochfarf), and be (the Chairman) hoped that at their next meeting they could address him as Mr Councillor Cochfarf. (Applause.) He would say that if Welch electors properly appreciated the services rendered by Mr Thomas in the past, they would do what lay in their power within the next few weeks to realize this hope. (Applause.) Rev W. FSANOIS JONES, in an earnest appeal, impressed upon Sunday School teachers the importance of inculcating the fundamental principles of Nonconformity. Some people either forgot or ignored the fact that there were principles, important and eternal principles, under- lying their Nonconformity. The Welsh people were essentially a nation of Nonconformists— (apptanse)-and he, as a Welshman, regretted deeply that in the course of the Church Congress recently held in this town there could be found a Welsh clergyman of tbe Established Church who had hurt the tenderest feelings of many con- scientious Christians, by an extreme display of Ritualism in connection with the religious services of his church. He (the speaker) wished it to be understood that Ritualism was foreign to the deep religious convictions of the Welsh people. (Applause.) The SECABTABT announced that at the forth- coming annual examinations to be held on Saturday, Dec. 14, and Wednesday, Dec. 18, the Executive Committee of the Union would present each successful candidate with a copy of the new Welsh-English Testament recently issued by the British and Foreign Bible Society as a result of the movement initiated by the union. A long programme of music, including two anthems, was effectively rendered. BErnsH AND FOREIGN BIBLE SOCIETY.-The annual services and meetings in connection with the Merthyr auxiliary of this society took piace on Sunday.
