Evans, late Congregational minister at Llanbradach, who now lives at Car- marthen, delivered two stirring sermons at Highland Place Unitarian Church on Sunday. He took as his subject in the morning, The Atonement," and in the course of his discourse he con- demned the idea that God remained in- flexible and inexorable to the terrible sufferings of the world until His wrath had been appeased and His dignity re- established by means of full and sufficient compensation. Orthodoxy had tried to tone the harshness of this position by verbosity and quibbling, but in the language of common-sense that is what it amounted to. Man was free by right and not by grace, and consequently he had a claim upon God independent of moral and religious obligations. The theory of atonement dealt an unkind blow to morality. Sin was not pardoned because God was love, but because the external equivalent had been paid for it. Really, he had seen better and higher morality taught in many a Welsh home, and the author of Where is my wan- dering boy to-night" could have framed infinitely better theology than that. Did not the son of man ask us to for- give our brother 70 times 7, and that spontaneously without the slightest compensation at all? THE ANNUAL DINNER of the Aber- dare and District Master Bakers' and Millers' Association was held at the Cafe Mona on Wednesday last. The chairman was Mr E. J. Harris, presi- dent of the association, and he was sup- ported by Mr W. H. Palmer, Swansea; Mr R. J. Brind, Cardiff, vice-president of the South Wales Federation of Mas- ter Bakers' and Millers' Association; Mr C. R. Vicary, president of the Aber- dare Chamber of Trade, and Mr F. W.

Burn (Messrs Joseph Rank, Ltd), Mr Joulson (Messrs Weaver and Co.), Mr Jones (Messrs Leethhams). Mr Huntley (Cardiff and Channel Mills, Ltd.), Messrs T. Lloyd, T. M. Miles, T. Daniel, W. Richards, T. Phillips (treasurer), D. Rees Jones, T. F. Hay- ter, and Ivor Bryant, Aberdare; J. Donoghue, Mountain Ash; G. John and T. Davies, Hirwain, and the secretary, Mr J. D. James, Aberdare. The Royal toast was proposed by the chairman. Mr T. Lloyd proposed The South Wales and West of England Master Bakers and Millers' Federation," and spoke of the excellent work done by the Federation in cementing the as- sociations together and in assisting the associations in their negotiations. He further commented upon the work done in the Federation by some members of the Aberdare Association.—Mr R. J. Brind, in responding, apologised for the absence of the Federation Presi- dent, Mr T. Goslin, who was engaged in Federation business in London. He spoke of the movement on foot to make the model bakery of the Cardiff Techni- cal Classes the centre for South Wales, and hoped that Aberdare would not be backward in sending pupils to that cen- tre.—The next toast, The Master Baker Members of the Association, was proposed by Mr W. H. Palmer, Swansea. He very feelingly referred to his long friendship with the late Mr F. W. Caunt, ex-president of the Aber- dare Association, and also of the South Wales Federation. Me missed Mr Caunt that evening, but he was glad to know that in Mr F. W. Caunt, lunr., the Association and Federation had a worthy successor to his late father. Mr Harris, president, responded. The Miller Members of the Association" was proposed by Mr T. M. Miles in a very racy speech, though he regretted, his inability to use" Howry n language.—Mr D. W. Jones responded. —" The Toast of the Town and Trade of Aberdare" was proposed by Mr Huntley, and responded to by Mr C. R. Vicary, who felt proud as a representa- tive and president of the Chamber of Trade to respond on their behalf to that toast. He regretted the fact that owing to the continual strikes and disputes in these valleys we had been unable to participate in the properous trade which encircled our country.—" The Chair- man was proposed by Mr T. Phillips, and Mr Harris responded.—" The Visitors" was proposed by Mr F. W. Caunt, and responded to by Mr Ivor Bryant.—A vote of thanks to the cater- er, proposed by the secretary, termin- ated a splendid evening.
