The Shares for our steamship.Anne Thomas were taken up so rapidly that we have contracted for another, to be ready for sea it December, 1883. The cost of the steamship being .627,600. 2. This steamship will be of the best construction,by the celebrated ship builders Messrs Palmer and Co., Jarrow-on-Tyne. It is of great importance to the shareholders who are the builders of a ship, because the true value of a ship, like that of a house, depends upon its constuction. The name of this steamship will be Kata Thomas. 3. We can promise with the greatest confidence that this steamship will pay about X20 per cent., perhaps more. Whilst sailing vessels to a great degree are oat of date, asd pay little or scarcely any interest, steam- ships pay better than ever. Even when trade was very dull, the steamships of Cardiff were paying, as a rule, about X20 per cent. per annum. We paid our f hare- holders the last-half year, ending December, 1882, at the rate of .624 10s per cent. 4. The boeks are open at the office at all times for the inspection of shareholders, and the Policy of Insu- rance may always be seen, to prove that there can be no loss through a shipwreck. 5. The shares will .be 4100 each, and to be paid as follows:— £ a. d. 10 0 on application for share. 49 0 0 December 1st, 1883. 12 10 0 in another six months. 12 10 0 ditto do. 12 10 0 ditto do. 12 10 0 ditto do Thus the share will be paid up in two years. But the interest will be paid on the whole from the com- mencement, viz., December, 1883. Thus making it convenient for all who have little mcney to invest. 6. It is understood that we do not charge any com- mission for the building of the vessel,which is the usual custom. The vessel will cost the shareholders the same amount as we are obliged to pay the builders, viz., £ 27,600 This will be an immense advantage to the shareholders to commence. The payment to us after this will be £ 2 10s per cent. upon all the profits of the brokerage, &c. going to the shareholders We espec- ially wish to draw the attention of the shareholders to these conditions, and compare them with the conditions of other firms. 7. The interest will be divided after every voyage, so that the shareholders will know from month to month what the profits of the vessel are. 8. The vessel will be on the principle of the Limited Liability Company, and we shall be the principal shareholders in it. FURTHER ADVANTAGES. 1. Every information will be found in the prospectus, or by writing to us, sach as the names of the builders, cost of the vessel, the construction of the vessel, &c., &c., which usually is not fovad in prospectuses. We are desirous for all to know the whole particulars. 2. Another great advantage is that the payment for management is so ¡')W, whilst we charge no commission on the building of the vessel. All who are "onversant with these things know that this is an immense ad- vantage, 3. No one need fear losing their money, because the ship will be insured to its full value, in case of ship- wreck, all accid nts, and also any negluot on the part of the captain. Sometimes these are neglected, but for the sake of strong security to the shareholders, the policy willlalways be shown in the office, 4 We are fully conversant with shipping affairs,and know all the principal ports and many of the principal traders in England and on the Continent have taken shares in our vessels, and send daily for shares in the Kate Thomas. 5. All are welcome to make inquiries as to our character in Cardiff, or at the National Provincial Bank of England, Cardiff, Brigend, and Dolgelley. 6. Anyone desiring for one or more shares, should write te us as below. Write soon for shares. EVAN THOMAS, RADCLIFFE & CO., BUTE CHAMBERS, CABDIFP. A LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION.

• LOCAL GOVERNMENT. In the March number of the Nine- teentk Century there appears Mr Rath- bone's concluding article on "Local Government in England and Wales." The ri s ht honourable gentleman, it is evident, has made this subject a special study, his observations on the present defective local government being clear and well sustained by ar- guments. Although the question of Local Government may not occupy the attention of Parliament at an early date, public opinion in the country is certainly ripe on the subject, and the necessity for a thorough change in the present system of county administra- tion cannot be denied. The glaring blunders which are continually being committed by our present county ad- ministrators in Wales especially- loudly proclaim the inefficiency of the system, and it is more than gratifying -it is even a relief-to think that the days of aristocratic rule in regard to county ad ministration will be numbered by the interference-of Parliament. Crea- tion of county magistrates by partial politicians holding lord-lieutenantcies will, in future, be of little avail, as the county boards will take from the hands of the present county authorities all the work on which abuse may possibly be exercised. Mr Rathbone must have been fully aware of the utter failure of magistrates to conduct county affairs when he pointed. out that the county board, if it is to be of any bene- fit, must take over all the" ad- ministrative work of the quarter ses- sions. It should control and direct the valuation of property, not only for the purpose of levying the future county rate, but also for the purpose of all rates and contributions. We shall see hereafter that our local finance cannot te placed on a proper footing unless we establish a single universal valua- tion, and consolidate the numerous rates now levied. For reasons already hinted at, the county boards should I take charge of the wcrknouses, and ad- minister in-door relief. To it should belong the management of asylums I and the maintenance of the county buildings. It should have the respon- sibility of granting licenses to sell in- toxicating liquors. The county bridges and such highways as are not intrusted to the inferior local authorities would naturally be under its care. It should exercise powers of approving, and in some degree controlling, the annual budgets of these authorities. It might watch and occasionally inter- vene in inquiries and legislation affect- ing watersheds, drainage, and rivers Time and the change of things would continually bring increasing business to the county boards." Mr Rathbone further suggests that personal as well as real pror,erty should be made to contribute directly to the expenses of Local Government; also that owners as well as occupiers should be made to contribute to the rates and lastly, that those who are specially benefitted by certain local improvements should be charged in a special manner with their cost. In closing his valuable observa- tions, Mr Rathbone says that a strong and efficient self-government, together with a just system of local and imperial taxation, is probably the strongest and most defensible bulwark against a violent or aggressive demo- cracy. It would bring that class which enjoys most wealth and leisure to unite with other classes in performing their fair share of public duty. In this way, the only way now possible, it would preserve to them a large share of the power and pre-eminence which they have hitherto enjoyed. It would secure to every class as much of the leadership as that class deserved, which is all that any class can retain in an age of demo- cracy. That he and his Government should achieve this double task would indeed be to Mr Gladstone the glorious crown of a glorious life."
The contemptuous reception given to Mr Parnell on both sides of the house on Monday night strengthened the suspicion that from the first he has been a vastly overrated man. There are even not wanting a good many people who have satisfied themselves as to a way in which he may be said to] res enable his Satanic, majesty himself. We do not mean the theological devil, nor the grotesque devil of German legend, nor the comic devil of Southey, nor the evangelical devil of Robert Montgomery, but the devil of Milton. He is "by merit raised to a bad eminence amongst M.P.'s fallen from loyalty. He shares the Satanic passion of Home Rule, and prefers reigning in the hell of Irish dis affection to serving iu the comparative heaven of British constitutional quietude. The bitter- ness, the malignity, the hauteur, and the scorn of his speech on Friday night would have be- fitted the lips of the Miltonic hero in one of the weird conclaves of Paradise Lost. Mr Forster acts the part as nearly as an elderly and not very graceful Yorkshireman can of an epic archangel. His speech was like the spear of Ithuriel. He is, of course, more bitterly hated by the malcoutented Irish than ever. He has escaped the assassins in Ire- land almost by miracle; but every one knows that he spoke out the other night as he did at the peril of his life. Ever since, he has been carefully guarded by the police, for it is very well understood that London as well as Dublin is invested with "invincibles." In all loyal circles the ex Secretary is more popular than he ever was in his life. He is regarded as a typical Englishman, honest, outspoken, and plucky, more of a patriot than a partisan. Throngs of peers and other dignitaries were present in the galleries of the House of Commons to hear Parne l's expected explanation. The Prince of Wales was an attentive listener. On all sides the opinion is expressed that the Home Rule leader's answer to the grave accusations made against him, though undeniably clever, wa evasive and unsatisfactory. The judgment of the lower classess may be gathered from a current query and reply which may be heard in the streets, in omnibuses, and in railway trains. "Who is No. 1 F" says someone. "Why Parnell of course," is the uniform answer to the conundrum. This grim jest shows the popular view of the matter. Behind the No. 1" from whom Carey tuok his orders, everyone suspects that there was another No. 1 still more careful to keep in the background, not commanding but concurring, not organizing crime but con- niving at it.
EDUCATION IN WALES. Mr T. Morgan Owen, M.A., one of her Majesty's inspectors of schools, on Friday evening delivered an address at the Pen-y-gelli Board Schools, Wrexham. on "A National Scheme of Education for Wales." He said that for some time past the most important question affecting Wales had been that of education. This subject had been prominently before the public mind of Wales for several years. After a certain amount of tinkering on the part of both parties in the State, Conservatives and Liberals alike, the latter, all praise to them for doing so, at last approached the question in a practical way by appointing a committee to inquire;into it in various parts of the country. He never read a more ponderous, exhaustive, confusing, and he might even say a more disappointing, mass of evidence thin that contained in the report of that com- mittee appointed to inquire into the condition of intermediate and higher education in Wales and Monmouthshire. Having referred to the con- clusions of the report and the recent conference at Chester, and touched in a lightsome vein upon the claims of the various North Wales towns to the honour of being the seat of a college, Mr Owen said:—"After mature consid '.tion, aud after years of practical acquaintance witu ele- mentary, grammar schools, and university educa- tion, I arnjaltogether opposed to the proposal of the Departmental t ommittee, inasmuch as their pro- posed colleges and their I proposed grant will not satisfy the wants ef Wales—they will have no foundation, and no crowning Btone (hear, hear). By found t on I mean the masses of society and by "crowning stone" I mean a university; degree (applause). These colleges will help the so;> of the well-to-do man, but tbey will be of no help to*the son of the working man aDd they will hive no power to confer degrees upon their students. The Departmental Committee asked the Government to give them £ 8,000 a year towards Welsh education, but they said that the whole of this m^raey, as well as the college fees, would be eaten up bj the college ploteas jrs aLd tatora, so I that not a single penny would be given to help poor Welsh youths. As far as the sons of tne sons of toil are concerned, these proposed colleges might as well be ttaek in the moon, if they are to receive I none of their funds. What we want is an edu- cational ladder up which the a 's <A any man may climb so as to afford him a chunce to improve his educational condition, and to better his poai- ton in life (hear, hear). What we want iu Wales is a university having for its foundation our elementary schools, and for its cro ?ning stone a university degree (applause). But how is this to be djue ? In my opinion this can bo easily done by connecting our ele eutary soh OJ • with our ijiamm r schools, and by co nect-ng our grammar schools with our exist ng colleges; bv utilizing the buildings, funds, al.Od the profession .i staff of the latter, and by placi g over them a senate with powr. r to confer oegrees (applause). There are in North Wales the following grammar schoools —Beaum.ris, Bangor, Bottwnog. Den- bigh, Llanrwat, Ru bon, Ruth n, liawarden, St Asaph, Bala, D dgelley, and Detheur. If Bottwn- og GrammarSohool were removed to Carnarvon and HawardenGra marSchoo to M Id; i St Thomas's Knd Hepworth colleges were ut lized at Rhyl, and if new schools were built at Llangefni, Wrexh im, Ffestin og, and Newtown, North Wdes w. uld b amply and conveniently supplied with g ammar schools. In South Wales there arj the following grammar schools:—Be on, Cardigan, Lampeter, Ystrad Meurig, Caraiarth n LLudovt17, Cow- bridge, Swanse!, Gel igaer, Haverfordwest, an Presteign. If the propriet ry school at Cardiff were utilized, and if new schools were l uilt at Pembroke, Llanelly, Brynmawr, and Merthyr Tydvil, then South Wales would be amply and conveniently supplied with grammar schools With Monmouthshire we have nohing to do as that county has educational endowments with £ 4,000 a year. Then the question arise, how are the,, e Lew grammar schools to be built? I fully believe that necessary funds to bui d them would soon be raised. Lord Penrhyn and Mr John Roberts, M. P., would no doubt give theJClOOO they so munificently and kindly promised the North Wales College, towards the erection of the new schools at Carnarvon and Mold respectively. Other noblemen and gentlemen would, doubtless, be most eager to follow their noble example in favour of the proposed new schools (hear, hear). We may therefore take it for granted that there will be no difficulty upon this head. Naturally, thejquestion adses to your :ipfl-are the elementary, are the grammar schools of Wales worthy of this support and connection ? I unhesitatingly assert that they are. As regards our elementary schools, it affords me great pleasure to be able to say that the percentage and quality of ti-e passes in them is better in Wales than in England. I may go even further than thie, and inform you that while in England I never met with schools that did the work that is done in Pen.y-gelli Boys' Board School, Wrexham Boys' British Sohool, and in the National Schools at Connah's Quay, Rhos. llanerchrugog, Flint, and elsewhere -(applause) the grammar schools at Bangor, Beaumaris, Ruthin, Brecon, Ccwbridge, Ystrad Meurig, and Llandovery are doing capital work under the tuition of university men. The last named has nine distinguished university men as tutors in it, and, within the last 10 years its pupils have won at Oxford or Cambridge two fellow- ships, six first, five second, and five third classes, 15 scholarships and 21 exhibitions Christ College, Brecon, I see from certain statisticts which I have by me, has done equally well (applause). Now, I am of the opinion that what has been done at Llandovery and Brecon Grammar Schools can be done at other grammar schools in Wales, if these schools have proper support and encouragement (hear, hear). I now come to the supeistructure of my educational edifice. St. David's College has worked for Wales about 60 years, and University College, Aberystwith, for 10 years. St David's College in 1852 was granted a charter, which enabled it to confer the degree of Bachelor of Divinity, and in 1865 a charter was granted which enabled it to confer the degree of Bachelor of Arts At the present time it is a well known fact that the Lampeter ordinary degree is equal to the ordinary degree of Oxford or Cambridge. Since 1880, the Lord Justices have granted special privileges to members of St David's College, who, having passed the second college examination, had become articled to solicitors. The college has also become affiliated to Oxford and Cambridge, so that its students, having gained their degrees with dis- tinction at Lampeter, may proceed to Oxford and Cambridge and tr/ their fortune for honours at these universities (applause). Let us nOR see what are its money advantages. It has one scholarship of the value of j640 a year, six of JE30, two of 25, six of £ 24, and two of JE20. In addition to these there are nine scholarships, ten exhibitions, and nine prizes; their total value is about JE700 a year. These figures proclaim more eloquently than words the patriotic motives and the nation loving feelings of the benefactors, donors, and well-wishers of this institution. We now come to its teaching capa- bilities. Its staff consists of six professors of dis. tinction from the univeraites of Cambridge, Dublin, and Oxford. It is open to all comers, Church people and Nonconformists alike, as there is no religious test. Two of its professors are laymen, and they n-ed not be Churchmen. The college expenses are about zC50 a vear for resideats; so that if a student won the X40 scholarship, his ex- penses would be only about L 10 a year. A non- resident would have to pay JE20 a year, or X60 for the college course of three years. The college ha' a good library which I need scarcely observe, is of vast importance to a body of students (hear, hear). During its existence it has educated some 1110 men, some of whom have helped in the noble work of educating and regenerating Wales. At the present time 107 students attend the college lectures and 85 reside within its walls, evidence of its present vitality, and the good name that it has gained for itself (applause). We now come to the University College, Aberystwith. Its fees are higher than those of St. David's College; a resident student has to pay about X70 a year, and a non-resident student about j635. It has seven professors and two assistant pro. fessors, very distinguished graduates of our leading universities. It will thus be seen that its tutorial staff is a more numerous one than that of St. David's College. It has three scholarships of the value of JE25 a year, nine of JE20, and four exhibi- tions of £25. It has also prizes of the value of £10, JE7, and £5 respectively, given to students who matriculate with honours, or in the first class, or who take their B.A. degree within a prescribed time at the University of London. It will thus be seen that it gives away every year about X300 in scholarships, exhibitions, and prizes. In order to show the hold it has had upon the popular mind of Wales, I shall tell you that upwards of £ 50,000 was voluntary subscribed for its purchase, enlarge. ment, and support (applause). Some of its scholar- ships, the interest of j63,000, were founded by the contributions of some 70,000 people. Two were founded by the commercial travellers of Wales. One was bestowed upon it by Mr Brereton of Mold and as to this last scholarship, I should remark that the friends and acquaintances of Mr Brereton gave him a testimonial consisting ofjE300 This money was nobly handed over to University College by him (applause). Of this you may rest assured that the 70,000 people, nor the com- mercial travellers, nor Mr Brereton would have supported this institution as they have done unless they felt assured that it would become one of the recognized national colleges of W Jes. Four hun- dred and ninety-three students have been iaught at University College since its opening-. At tre present time 82 attend its lectures, and 20 reside within its walls. These students have the great advantage of a library and also a museum. Students from University College have gained since its foundation in 1872 distinctions at Oxford, Cambridge, and London, Edinburgh, and at Glasgow, thus showing the <?ood character of the work done at this college (applause). I may tell you that it is connected with the Methodist, Con- gregational a d Baptist Colleges of Wales. This is a subject for congratulation, because, as Wales is a theological country, the two branches of its university should have professors of Divinity. From tbe-e particulars we may safely conclude that St. David's and Unive sity Colleges deserve the continued recognition of the Principality as the colleges of Wales (hear, hear). This con- clusion is strengthened by t"e following facts: £8,000 a year for two colleges is, as I have already stated, not enough for their support. According to the Departmental Committee, each college was to have £4000 a yeaT, which would be swallowed up iu salaries, and there would be 1 I nothing left for other absolutely necessary expeoses m connection with a college-not to mention such aids, inducements, and encourage- ment us scholarships, exhibitions, and prizes. Moreover, the erection of two colleges will cost about £ 100,000, and where is such l°c^efron? ho answers, e • Thus, Wales is obliged to make use ot Lhe buildings, staff, and endowments of Uni- vers ty and St. David's Colleges, and twill there- fore b" seen tha the r. c ymme dirions of the De- pntmentd c,mm ttee were iU-c^si-e'ed and ill- advised. What I beg to surest is that the Govern-nent should give Wales £ 50,000 down and an annual gra of XIO.000 a rem for Welsh I educational purposes (tieir, hear). The £ 50 000 sh'-uld be utuized for tha foundation of fellowships and prizes at the Welsh University Of the £10_000 a year, £I,SOOcoutd be p!a ed at the dis- po.al ol the authorities of each of its colleges to helpto defray their'tntoriil and other expanses. ?«n ^7 000, £ 4,r,00 should go to found 180 exhib.tions of the auiiual value oi £ 25 and 3 5AV° i0TUr 50s'ips,,f tbe annualv^ue of £ -50. These exruoitions should be open to b,j, -,i from all schools in Wales, and the successful candidates should have the choice of their grammar schools Thus the best grammar schools would have the greater number of pupils, and the in -ifferent grammar schools would be force t to continued exerthn in order to -^rl' A aibif!°?!uh°uId be t' ^blefor three /ears. At the end of this time their holders and all ether comers should have an opportunity of competing for one of the 50 scholarships. And they should have liberty either to carry these schol arships to any other British university, or to h >!d them at either of the two WeLh colleges for three years (applause). A charter should be granted empowering a senate to confer degrees (hear, hear) Tois senate should have authority over bot i colleges, and should consist of sixteen members: Four from the governing body of St. David's College; four from the governing body of University College four from Cambridge and ? 'r<?m Oxford, eight of whom should be elected by Government. This senate should hold office for five years onlv. And to crowa all, the Welsh University should have its representative iJl^r *0OU,8e °f Parljaraeut (hear, hear, and cheers). I trust a cry will be raised through- out the length and breadth of Wales in favour vfn -a Ull!vers1^ of a comprehensive and religious character, of a university in which the son of the peasant and the peer may struggle for the proudest of all coronets-the coronet betaking the aristocracy of intellect, of industry, and of worth (hear, hear). When we bear in mind that a seminary of priests at May- nooth received no less a sum than £26,000 a year, surely a nation's need will not be ignored any longer (hear, hear). And what nation is it that craves for the inestimable boon of a university system of education for its sons ? It is the oldest of civilized nations. Itjis the representatives of a race that struggled, successfully struggled, against a combination of r-ices for centuries. It is a na- tion unique amongst the nations of the earth, for it still retains as its living language that which was spoken by its ancestor at the time that Latin and Greek, now dead, were the living languages of £ fh i- ble,fd.m08t powerful people of the then known world; ID still i cc ipied that cor- ner of the globe which its ancestors occupie?2 000 years ago, and marvellous to relate, the reon*, sentatives of its ancient princes are to be 'found not only in the castles of the nobles and the man- sions of the great, but also under the roof of the homeliest and humblest aboJes of its people It is a nation celebrated for its industry, piety, quietness, and unswerving loyalty (applause)r
