Celtic National Anthem, i "LAND OF MY FATHERS" ADOPTED. Close of the Congress. The closing ceremonials on Saturday of the Pan-Celtic Congress at Carnarvon were marked by great enthusiasm. The Executive of the association recommended that now that Corn- wall had been formally included in the Union the name of the federation should be changed from Pan-Celtic to merely Celtic Associa- tion, and the recommendation was adonted. Mr Alfred Graves said that never had so royal a welcome been accorded to any such gathering as the Celtic Association had during the week en- joyed at the hands of the Welsh people. 'e. He wished again to urge them. the people "of Wales, to see to it that their national music was preserved in their schools. Mr Theodore Napier said Scotland had learnt valuable lessons from this visit to ancient Wales. ales had lose the dress which Scotland still preserved, but had preserved the tongue which Scotland had been in danger of losing. Let Wales recover her national dress and retain her II national music. Mr Jennet, of Cornwall, said he had been more than gratified by the manner in '¡ which the congress bad received his petition for the inclusion of Cornwall. Britain had re- K established her ancient Gorsedd moulded on the plan of Wales. Ireland had her I Feis and the Highlands its Mod—and Corn- wall would be ready by the time the Archdruid and the Gorsedd of the Bards of the Isle of Britain came to the Boscawen circle to authorise the u xe-esiabliamentof the third of the greatGorseddah of Britain, Mr Carmiciiael said that he had been struck by the innate courtesy of the Welsh people. Lord Castletown, in the course of an imo passioned presidential address, said that when witnessing the raising of the Lia Cineil in the Castle yard he felt that his day's work for Celtia had been done, j (Cxies of "No, no.") Their thanks were due to the Mayor of Carnarvon and the Welsh I people who had made thishappyreunion possible. The Mayor of Carnarvon said the Welsh people would maintain their language and national tra- I ditions, and do what they could to assist their sister nationalities in doing the same. Mr Alfred I Graves said the Executive had decided to recom- mend the adoption of the Welsh National Anthem, The Jand of my fathers," as the National anthem of the whole Celtic race. The anthem would be engroased and illuminated in each of the six Celtic languages, on vellum, by Celtic artists, and then handed over to the safe- keeping of the Mayor and Corporation of Carnarvon. Lord Castletown then called a representative vocalist from each nationality present to sing in his or her own native tongue the solo of the Welsh anthem. This was done by Miss Trsacy, for Ireland: Mr John Jones, Carnarvon, for Wales; Mr Jaffrenou, for Brit- tany; and Mr Jenner, for Cornwall; the whole aodience singing thachorus in Welsh, thus bring- ing the meeting to a close, On Saturday morning the delegates assembled again in the Castle for the purpose of formally releasing their national sections from tho Iija Cineil, or Stone Of the Nation.
