An effectual Remedy for that most distressing pain Neuralgia. It often happens that most persons mistake Toothache for Neuralgia, It is important to guard against this. Neuralgia consists of excruciating pains parting over the cheek, upper lip, and over the brows, or it may be confined to the lower lip, the teeth and chin; distinguishable from Toothache by the suddenness of the attack, by the pain being more generally diffused, and by its occurring more in paroxysms. Then again, it is unlike Toothache which indiscriminately has the strong and weak for its victims. ONE DOSE immediately stops the pain.

MR. KEIR HARDIE ON THE LABOUR ALLIANCE. ADDRESSING a meeting at Blackburn a few days ago, Mr. Keir Hardie, M.P., said that he was more than gratified at the progress which the I.L.P. movement had made during the past five or six years. He proceeded to refer to the alliance that existed in the House of Commons between the members of the I.L.P. and the Trade Union Group. The two sections had, he maintained, worked in harmony and unison. And he pre- dicted a continuation of those friendly relations, Mr. Keir Hardie said further that when the fulness of time would come Trades Unionists throughout the country would declaim for Socialism." Doubtless some members of the Trade Union Group will feel inclined to dis- agree with Mr. Keir Hardie on the question of the Trades Union movement being absorbed by Socialism. So far many of them have shown little inclina- tion to declaim or declare for the whole policy of the I.L.P. If the I.L.P. were to endeavour to enforce the absorption referred to it would probably jeopardise the friendly relations of which Mr. Keir Hardie speaks. The leader of the British Labour Party is, however, far more tolerant than Socialist leaders on the Continent, for they will have no covenant with any except out-and-out supporters of their Socialistic policy. They scoff at the British coalition of Trades Unionism and Socialism, and for that reason are inclined to look askance at the Labour Party as it stands in the British House of Commons. Mr. Keir Hardie and his confreres probably understand British national needs and British politics better than our foreign critics, and, as he remarked, the allied party has worked with tolerable harmony and smoothness, which is certainly an argument in favour of retainin g the coalition. Whether, as Mr. Keir Hardie predicts, political evolution will eventu- ally bring about a complete absorption of Labour by Socialism, it is not safe to prophesy.

MORIAH AMAN SUPPORTS BETHLEHEM. INTERVIEW WITH THE PASTOR. At the church meeting held at Moriah Aman Cong. Church, Cwmaman, on Sunday evening1, Nov. 8, the Rev. H. A. Davies, pastor, placed before the meet- ing the situation in the sister church at Bethlehem, Abercwmboi, where a num- ber of members had been expelled be- cause they entertained New Theology views. Thereupon it was proposed and seconded: That we pass a vote of sym- pathy with the church at Abercwmboi and of approval with the action of the pastor in dealing summarily with the New Theologians in the church." The minister asked all who were in favour of the resolution to rise to their feet, and every member present stood. Interviewed by a Leader representa- tive on this matter, the Rev. H. A. Davies immediately dropped into a re- miniscent but not by any means a pessi- mistic mood.. "I have been young and am now old," said he in effect. (Mr. Davies, it should be remembered, is the oldest Congrega- tional minister in the Aberdare Valley.) He remembered similar schisms which threatened the integrity of the orthodox church, but they had all come to nought." He well remembered the time when the Latter Day Saints found many converts and much sympathy in the ranks of local churches. Between 35 and 40 years ago the heresy of the Rev. Edward White caught on in many Congregational Churches, but eventually it vanished like smoke. Mr. Davies had vivid recollec- tions of the sensation caused when Dr. John Young, author of "The Christ of History," changed his views and aban- doned his denomination. « (Ne.w Theology,' indeed;" said Mr. Davies. It is as old as Sooiny*s, at any rate." Mr. Davies was perrrotly confi- dent with regard to the future' peace of our local churches. The storm of the present controversy would soon pass away. He was not the least alarmed when the breakers of scepticism assailed ^he impregnable rock," for it was only the "raging waves of the sea foaming out their own shame." out their own shame." Asked if he approved of the attitude of the Rev. J. B. Davies and Bethlehem. Church towards the New Theologians, the venerable rev. gentleman said that he did with all his heart. If other ministers and churches found themselves similarly situated it was their duty to take similar action. "I believe," said he, "in' every man having perfect liberty to hold any views, however heterodox, but it is but fair and honest on the part of these heterodox thinkers to sever their connection with the orthodox church. It is a violation of our Trust Deeds to allow people who deny the Trinity, for instance, to re- main in our churches."
INTERVIEW WITH THE REV. D. SILYN EVANS. This is the substance of an interview which the Leader representative had with the Rev. D. Silyn Evans: — This is my third time to approach you, Mr. Evans, for your opinion as to the unpleasantness (shall I call it so?) at Abercwmboi. And what will you say now? "I think I better say something now, or I'll be called again a 'spiritual coward' and one guilty of 'silent contempt,' a re- mark as noted for its impulsiveness as it is for its wrong interpretation of per- sons." Will you give me your opinion of the excommunication of the men from Beth- lehem ? I think that the men who were so dismissed from the church are keen enough and fair enough to see and even to acknowledge that their dismissal was not exactly an excommunication from the church, but a gradual withdrawal of their own." Then you mean to say that these men deliberately left the church? What I mean to say is, that these men are, at least I give them credit to be, sensible enough to see' that it was their duty, to bring to an end their mem- bership at Bethlehem, inasmuch as by so doing1, they would act kindly and justly not only towards the pastor and church, but also towards themselves." Do you say then that these men had forfeited their rights to membership at Bethlehem ? I don't understand very well the limits of the word 'forfeited' you have used; but I understand this: as long as these men held different theological views to the church, and as long as they insisted on advocating these views, con- trary to the mission and history and will of the church, I mean to say that they thus disqualified themselves for church membership at Bethlehem. To say that the Congregational Churches have no Creed or Theology betrays either in- different ignorance or provoking stupidi- ty and when men of learning make such a statement, I pity their learning more than I pity them, and when this is being repeated in Wales, so soon after the Re- vival, it makes any sober man think of the words of Paul that God 'had sent them strong delusions,' that they should believe a lie." Then you say that the Congregational Churches have their Creed? "Well, I give you credit that you ask it in the capacity of a journalist. Then I can understand you. Yes, the Congre- gational Churches have their Creed; and anyone who interprets Congregationalism differently, has a misleading vision and is a blind leader." But these men who wer? turned out were and are Independents? And wouldn't the Independency of the church safeguard them? "Yes, every individual has his inde- pendency but there is a very important difference between the independency of the individual and the independency of the church. When we say the Independ- ent Church at Bethlehem we mean the church and not the individuals in the church. The church is Independent, and not individual members in the church. Then the difference is great between Ccngi egationalism and Individualism." I see that you give a stronger emphasis on the church than on the individual. "Yes, I do; and I have a great liking for the words of Dr. Forsyth, that 'Theology is the trust and property of the church and not of irresponsible in- dividuals.' Possibly the terms 'church' and irresponsible' Jiere ask for explan- ation; nevertheless, the saying has its message to the present time." I think I see now that you are of opin- ion that the "dismissal," as you call it, of these men from the church was right and even necessary? I mean to say that it was inevitable, and I am bound to believe that the dis- missed members approve of the dis- missal. They knew very well that the members of Bethlehem had their Christ- ian convictions. They knew that the pastor is a man of distinctness in his Theology, as well as strong in his will and enthusiasm. They knew that the church had done all in her power to up- hold the Christian Faith, and that the church continue faithfully to believe in these doctrines; and knowing this, even eemmon. sense and common honesty would tell them that it would be cruel on their part to interfere with the happi- ness and peace of the majority." Mr Evans balanced carefully his words as he went on. I could read between lines that his religious sympathies are very broad, and that his toleration and forbearance go far. Many a tiine he has been heard to say in his Communion Services, that all were allowed to join in the Lord's Supper, and that any mem- ber of any other denomination was wel- come, if he wished, to join them. At the same time he seemed to speak with dis- gust of those who teach that the Congre- gational Churches have no Theological Creed.
Theological Friction. TROUBLE AT BETHEL, GADLYS. A conflict between the Old and the New Theologians has been proceeding apace for some time at Bethel Welsh Congre- gational Chapel, Gadlys, though matters have not reached the stage arrived at in Bethlehem, Aberowmboi. The active New Theologians in Bethel number about 24, but together with their fami- lies this number would possibly be trebled. The feeling entertained by some of the deacons towards the Campbellites may be gathered from the following re- mark, made by one of the former:- Their teaching' is so rotten that I can- not possibly sit down in the same chapel as them." It is .interesting to note also that this winter the Unsectarian Class were re- fused the loan of the Vestry for meet- ings. This class was started by the Rev. J. Richards, then pastor of Bethel, and last winter the Rev. J. Morgan Jones, M.A., Aberdare, was invited to take Mr. Richards' place. The reason given for refusing was that the Trust Deeds would not allow such gatherings to be held there. Feeling that a re-election of deacons would clear the air, as it were, seven of the deacons decided last Sunday week to tender their resignations. This was in the afternoon, but when the evening came, four only handed in their papers. The four were Messrs. R..A. Davies, T. D. Williams, David Morris, and D. J. Williams. On the Monday evening a church meeting refused to accept Mr. T. D. Williams' resignation, but accepted the others. Furthermore, on the Wed- nesday evening, another church meeting proceeded to elect a treasurer in the place of Mr. Davies. The new officer is Mr. Wm. Bowen. It is doubted by several members whether this is consti- tutional., for the rules specify that there must be a notice given extending over two Sundays, before any such matter can be dealt with. A Bible Class meets every Sunday morning at 9.30, but owing to the strain- ed relations, the attendance is almost confined to those who lean towards the Rev. R. J. Campbell's views. One of the New Theologians, in con- versation with our correspondent, com- plained that whenever anything was pro- posed by a member of the "advanced wing," it was immediately condemned by the other side. They would like to throw us out," he continued, but they cannot muster sufficient courage."
Conductor Crowned. Last Monday, at a Swansea concert, the ceremony of crowning Mr Llew R. Bowen, the well-known soloist and conductor, took place. He is the talented conductor of the Swansea Male Voice Choir, who have re- cently won laurels at Carmarthen, Cardiff and Tonypandy. At the last named place a crown was awarded the successful con- ductor. The ceremony on Monday evening was carried out in Gorsedd fashion, an oak chair and a sword being lent for the occa- sion. Mr A. H. Thomas, J.P. (' Crymlyn'), was the officiating bard. Mr Llew R. Bowen is a son of Mr J. L. Bowen, of the Windsor Aerated Water Works, Aberdare.
