THE NEW TREVECCA. .Å Inauguration at Aberystwyth. Inspiring Proceedings. (SPECIAL FOR THE « HERALD.") Alberystwyth is making great strides. On a hillside between the town and Uauibadam | rises, the stately Liandinam Laboratory gradu- ally lifts its pmmoips. Higher up, before long, the National Library of Wales will find a stately home. On the sea front, nearly opposite the pier, a. palatial buying, erected for the pur- poses of a hotcl, has been converted to be a theologica-t college. Whether, it is to be called Lla,u.&in= College or Trevecca. College is not yet settle. It has been suggested that the in- stiiution should be called AfrWa Ddinam. That might mean that it a College named after the Plas Dinam family; or that it is in- tended to be a "faultiest." college, according to the etymology of "dinam." Either deriva- tion might be accepted—taie one to denote a an idea.1. The Theological College at Trevecca was es- tablished sixty-four years ago. It was not -without a keen and a prolonged controversy that the removal has been brought about. Two -wears a«o Mr David Davies, of Llandinam (now M P. for Montgomeryshire). his mother and sis- ters, offered to provide £ 12,500 towards the cost-of erectly college buildings at Abersyt- •wyth wherein the two theological colleges of the connexion at Bala (for North W^es) and at Trevecca (for South Wales) could bo amalga- mated in one institution, The offer evoked no enthusiasm. Last spring Mr David Davies and his family helped the movement materially with a munificent offer. They purchased for W,5,0001 the magnificent building on the Aber- ystwyth sea front previously used as the Hotel Camlbriac, and offered to hand it over, fully equipped, either to the South Wales Associa- tion for the purposes of the Trevecca College or to the North Wales Association for the pur- poses of the Bala College, or to both associa- tions joinitly for the purposes of establishing therein one united theological college for North and South Wales. The- North Wales churches "found their attachment to Bala too great to permit of a severance at present, but the, offer was definitely accepted by the South Wales "Association at its NawtymoeJ meeting in June last. It is understood that if the North Wales Association should, reconsider its decision it -will be permitted to remove Bala to the new institution at Aberystwyth. Tihe new college is an excellently built struc- ture with a good aspect, ample roominess, and pre-eminently lends itself to grouping, as a. residential college, in respect to the mutual re- lation of the various departments. On the ground floor is a dining hall capaJble of accom- modating 80 persons; a spacious entrance hall, -with porter's, office large reception and wait- ing-room principal's private room; two class- rooms, each seating 24 students: matron s vste room: students' common room; assembly ball, cap-ible of accommodating 100; and lava- tory and cloakroom accommodation. On the first floor are libra.ry and reading- room, classrooms, registrar's office, professors" common room, study accommodation, resident professors' house, etc. The second floor has fftildy accommodation for 45 students. The third floor has study and bedroom accommoda- tion, and other bedrooms for officials. There is bedroom accommodation for 22 students on the attic floor. There are thus .provided bedroom and studies for 60 students. Since the inauguration, of the University of "Wales in 1894, the curriculum of Trevecca., Jiib that of other Welsh theological colleges, ww considerably modified by the institution of the schemes of study for the degree of B.D. Amendments were made from time to time in the schemes and methods of ministerial educa- tion, and the arts courses, which had previouslv covered the first hlalf of the student s gtav at the college, were wholly done away, these being taken entarely at Aberystwyth or Cardiff Uni- versity Oollege. The stucfents, who ha.ve al- ready been in residence at Aberystwyth a fort- iMiglht, now have quarters which many men in the older Universities may well envy..Mr D&- vies's liberality in furnishing the interior for living and studying has been on the sa.me scale as the munificence thait effected the purchase of the edifice. Provided steps can be taken to relieve the Aberystwyth students, of financial -anmiety, the removal will result in greater physical, intellectual, and moral vigour on the part of the students and professors. OPENING CEREMONIES. The opening ceremonies consisted of a recep- tion of delegates; and inaugural lecture by Dr Orr, of Glasgow; a public luncheon, and two religious services. The Teoepftiorn, given bv the church of the town, was held on Wednesday. It was at- tended by about 600 persons, and the sjuesto •were representative of every county in Wades. Mr Da-vid Davies, M.P.. Llandmam, with his mother, Mrs Davies, and his sisters, the Misses Davies, the donor of. t'he new college buildings, were among the numiber. Speeches of welcome having l:-ea ma.de by Mr Evan Evans and Rev T. E. Roberts, M.A. Principal Owen Prys responded on behalf of the College in an address of great eloauence. During the 16 years he had spent at Trevecca 200 stnidenrts had passed through the College. Nowadays the University Colleges prepared students far the theological colleges, and one- third of their students at the new Trevecca. CJoilerre at Aberystwyth were graduates. He hoped" soon to see the proportion raised to one- balf. Already there were over a hundred men being prepared for admission to the new college (cheers). When men had thus spent years in equipping themselves for the ministry he hoped the churches would see that they were ade- quately remunerated. The need of tihe hour was intellectual men filled with the spirit of God. THE INAUGURAL LECTURE. The inaugural lecture of the College was given in Shiloh Chapel. The spacious building was well filled by the students, the delegates and the townspeople. Principal Roberts, of the University 'College, occupied a seat in the •deacon's pew, and many other members of the fitaft of the University (C-oilege were present. The introductory service was taken by the Rev Daniel Rowlands, M.A.. Bangor, avate-ran promoter of education in Wales. (Mr David Davies, M.P., then took the chaiT, and briefly introduced the lecturer. Dt Orr, a £ iamt bofh physically and mentally took as his subject: Xhrist in the thought of to-day." There was no subject, he declared, more opportune for their consideration^ r&e question, "What think ye of Christ? was discussed on all hands; 'and on the amswer depended the world' hope*. It was impos- øilble not to recognise that the historical faith of the Church was being assaulted on all sides bv the new scholarship on th» Continent, in England, and in America. The crisis was far graver than many people appreciated. The storm of criticism that had assailed the Old Testament was now asrwling the New: tend not even the Synoptic Gospels were left ton- assailed..To expect/ anything eise was a de- lusion which was passing away. The ideas of God an(I of revelation which underlay the radical criticism of the Old Testament could not but lead up,to an attack on the doctrine of the Incarnation. Now they found that critics like Schmiedet, Revise Siabatier, lHarnack, Wrede, We'mel,'Oscar Holtzmann, Percy (Gard- ner, Professor Foster, of Chicago, and others wrote books and articles in which they assumed that the mode.m idea was established. That -view, below a surface diversity, exhibited a singular unity. Jesus was strapped of every distinctively supernatural power. It was not -exactly Unitarian, foT tha.t was a view opposed to the Trinitarian. Bather, it was humani- tarian and it aimed at deifvi-g humnrty rathjr tomanismz'Deity It thus wresence of a Divme element in -Je-.us as in fji mm though iti did not- subscribe to the Hegelian doctrine of the identity of the end"" human. The modern teachers progressed a reverence for Jesus, hut they held themselves, at liberty to criticise His teaching. AH else they regarded as "aberglaiibe" and snpersti- N<rr, th« question wai: Could Chrw tianiiy survive without something niffifre ? There were many to whom the Christ of the new theology wore a plausible aspect. He attarted. them as the Christ of 'the creecfe did not at- | tract them. This Christ seemed more human, more brotherly more lovable-fitter to be the leader and guide of humanity than the supra- mundane Christ of the historical church. People ask: Is not everything really vital preserved T The lecturer gave a decided nega- tive answer to this question. He argued that this "new" view was in reality but an old heresy. It was a decisive break with historic Christianity. No existing Church was based on such an attenuated creed. It would be fatal t)o the hope of the 'Church and paralyse her efforts for the uplifting of humanity. It let the sinful world without a Redeemer. Sir Oliver Lodge had recently declared that the modern world had "given up worrying albout sin." But sin reminded a terrible fact; and when men ought a savilour, they musttseek not a humani- tarian Christ, .but the 'Son of God. The re- sults of the new criticism was not due- to a true historical method, but to a fals philo- sophical assumptions. The cri'ticism was the work of closeted recluses, of men of philo- sophical and speculative bent. They belonged to coterie#, and were not in the least fitted, to take hold of or bring help to the mass of the people. They produced condiments. for the few, not a Gospel for the many. Christianity, in the simplest statement of it, was a religion of redemption. It was the religion which pro- duced the Welsh revival. The humanitarian view destroyed the basis of certainty in Te- ligion, and the step was a short one logically, Mnd was bound to (be taken sooner or later, and was being taken, from the mere humani- tarian Christ to a pure agnosticism. Dr Cynddylan Jones (Cardiff) followed on the topic q.f "The Place of Christ in the IBilble," and afterwards proposed a vote of thanks to Dr Orr for his address. This was seconded by Professor Hugh Wil- liams (Rala), and unanimously carried. Mr Roger W. Jones i(Pengam) proposed a vote of thanks' to the Plasdinam family for their munificient gift of the College, fully equipped, to the Connexion. Mr J. R. Davies, J.P., CVIenai Bridge, chair- man of the Bala College Committee, who se- conded, said there was no man in Wales who } did not estimate at its right value the effo-rts of the Llandinam family in the directions of promoting t'he union of the connexion iMr David Davies, in acknowledging, sa:d it was to them a great pleasure to have had the was to them a great pleasure to have had the privilege of giving that college. He, however, thought that It was only the beginning of a ejlill greater work, and that was the estab- lishment of a theological faculty which would lishment of a theological faculty which would embrace all the denominations in Wales (ap- plause). PUBLIC LUNCHEON. About four hundred guests afterwards sat down to luncheon at the Pier Pavilion at the invitation of ,Mr [Davies. Supporting IMr Davies, who presided, were Dr Orr, Principal (Prys, Sir John Williams, Principal Roberts, and Principal iBebb, (Lampeter. Sir John Williams submitted the toast, of "The National Colleges." He urged that other denominations should .group 'their colleges around the national (College at Aberystwyth. Principal T. !F. Rdlberts responding, wel- corned the new college to the town. He comed the new college to the town. He considered that the University College and the Theological College would be mutually 'bene- fited. In the past the University College had; held the flag higih. Henceforth they would hold it still higher. ) .The 'Rev 'R. R. Roberts gave The Theo- logical Collegea of Wales in a very humorous speech, in which he made fun of the reluctance of 'North Wales to move Bala to Aberystwyth. He ^Cated in conclusion that a member of his congregation had established a scholarship at the college. Principal .Ellis .Edwards, IBala, responded in a very effective speech. Responses were also made for the Congrega- tional Colleges by Professor Anwyl, and for the Baptist College by Professor J. M. Davies. Principal BeJtvb, who had been expected to respond on behalf of (Lampeter, had to leave to catch his traia. The Rev J. Pryce Davies ,Chester, proposed "Success to the new college" in a vigorous Welsh speech. He declared that if some of (tiheiil friends in (North Wales had onfy seen the building many criticisms would never have Ibeen mutteied. Principal Prys briefly responded. The Rev Rees Evans, iLlanwrtyd, proposed the Health of the iChairman." Mr Davies, as he rose to respond, 'was loudly cheered for some minutes. He first thanked the guests for coming to the inaugurate of the college, and in particular he thanked the repre- sentaties of other colleges and denominations. The college, however, was not a new one, but a continuation of the old one. They proposed to carry on the memory and traditions of the founder. Howel Harris was. far too great a man to be tied down to one place. Hewas a I product and a representative of the nation. The college would go on animated by his spirit. Be trusted that the college, though managed by the "Hen Gorph, would be thrown open to students of any denomination who desired to study theology. :,More funds I were wanted so that the endowments should be placed on a more satisfactory basis than at present. The great aim of the college would be to try to uplift the spiritual life of Wales. Though the students came in the main from one de- nomination, their influence would be left in- directly throughout the Country. He considered that religious men put far too tnuch stress upon the differences "which separated them, They all aimed at going .to the same place. He failed to see why they should not, like Alpine- climjbers, all hang on to the same rope and reach the top together (cheers). He was glad! climjbers, all hang on to the same rope and climjbers, all hang on to the same rope and reach the top together (cheers). He was glad! to see the principal, staff, and (students of the University College present. He hoped there would be many more of such reunions, and that something would be done to diminish the feel- ing between North and South Wales. The students, by mingling w'ith the University [College student could do much to ensure that result. In South (Wales there was no anta- I goniem whatever to Bala. He was afraid .there was some misunderstaneding in the North. There Vas no antagonism at all in the South. They were simply anxious for union they thought it would be the best thing for the denomination as a whole. Although the question had been settled for some time to come, he was still in hopes that the future would bring some change with it. Union must come in the long run, and when their Baila friends charged their minds he was sure they woulod be only too glad to open their arms amd receive them into the College at Abe-rystwyth. Torces were at work throughout the country which made for union in the long run. In Im- perial politics, forces made for union. The union of the Scottish, Canadian, and American chmrdhee was a sign of the times. The snirit of unity was at work, and it must penetrate the Oalvtinistic connexion. He urged that uniotv was good for reasons of economy. It. would enable them to remunerate the staff more ade- quately. He considered that the College would benefit also by being placed near the, Univer- sity College. Some people thought it would be a good plan to place the College in a place where the students would not come in contact with active life. That was one of the reasons urged for not removing Bala College to Aber- ystwyth. That was a perfectly honest view, but he thought it was quite wrong. Tn other countries, theololgical colleges were r-rouped irou'nld University centres. t That was so at Toronto and Montreal in Canada. The same thing was seen at Oxford, Cambridge. Glascrmv. a.nd Ediribursrh. That was one of the reasons which impelled them to move Trevecca Col- lege • and he believed their Bala friends would some dav come round to the same view. the National Colleges were founded, theology was excluded. Therp never was any reason for this except, sectarian friction. The defect could be supplied by placing the theolo-girvt oollepes alongside the national colleges. He trusted the influence of the College upon the academic life of Aberysitwyth would be an in- fluence for trood. The students should be the nit of the intellectual life of Aberystwyth: and he trusted there would be a ;mingling-and mixing from the very first. As to the future, he looked forwa-rd to the time when an undenominational theological college would be possible. Such insbitutions were to be found in other countries. Such a College could secure a great staff and a great number of students. A better-and fuller education wouJd be given than was now pos- sible. They would be able to pay the pro- fessors good salaries instead of the miserable stipends now paid. He sincerely hoped that such a College would be established; and he believed that they that day were layung the cor- ner stone of the structure. In such a College. the professors and student would commingle in one brotherhood, and so achieve results far more splendid than those which they won among the petty differences that now separated the Christian churches of Wales. If the new Tre- vecca College should contribute something to- wards realising his ideal, they would be amply repaid for any troiable and, expense that they had incurred (Iloud cheeTs). The singing of "Hen Wlad fy. Nhadau" and the Doxolqgy terminated the proceedings. OTHER MEETINGS. At the Welsh service, the preachers were the Revs W. Prydderch, Swansea, and John Wil- liams, Anglesey. At a meeting held in the evening, Mr D. Da- vies, M.P., presided, and. addresses were de- livered by the Rev J. J. Roberts, Portmadoc; J. Pugh, Cardiff; J. M. Jones, Cardiff; Prin- cipals Ellis Edwards, Bala, and J. Roberts, K'hassia- The Revs Benjamin Hughes, St. As- aph, and Rees Evans, Llanwrtyd, also took part.
A SCENE AT CRICCIETH COUNCIL TWO DEACONS QUARREL. A REGRETTABLE INCIDENT. A scene took place at the Criccieth Town Council on Monday evening between Mr J. W. Roberts, fishmonger, and Captain Hugh Grif- fith, grocer, both of whom are deacons at Zion C.M. Chapel. At a previous meeting of the Council Captain Griffith, supporting a petition, stated that though Mr J. W. Roberts had done his utmost to prevent the fowls, the manure, the pony, the offal, decayed vegetables, etc., which he kept in his back premises from creat- ing a nuisance, yet they caused such an awful smell to rise from there that it was impossible to open the windows of adjoining houses with- out the rnoms being filled with the effluvium. C-i.pt. Griffith was of opiivon that 1 lie nuisance harmed the town, and said that he and others had lost visitors on its account. When his niece was on her deathbed and grasping for breath, they dared not open the windows, be- cause the offensive smell from Mr Roberts's yard would fill.the room. Mr Roberts demanded from Captain Grif- fith that these serious allegations should he substantiated or withdrawn. They were ab- solutely untrue, and had been made from a feeling of malice and enmity. Captain Griffith repeated the charges even in stronger terms, and said that Dr Peiter Fraser, the medical officer, had condemned the place. He had no grudge whatever against Mr Roberts or any other person. Mr Roberts then made a statement that re- flected: unfavourably on Captain Griffith, and the Chairman (Mr J. T. Jones, J.P.) called him to order. Both Mr Roberts and Captain Griffith were on their feet gesticulating in a menacing manner towards one another. Mr Roberts suddenly left the table and opened the door, and at the same time asked Captain Griffith to come outside. Captain Griffith was astonished that a young man should want to fight a man who was old enough to be his father. The Chairman at this juncture put a stop to the soene, and the next business was proceeded with.

Griffith (chairman) said that the amount of the call for the period ending 'March next was less by j31210 than it was in 1904. As ? matter of fact, a gradual decrease had taken place since 1904, and that DjO doubt was a. matter that ought to give the ratepayers every satisfaction.—In ans- wer to Mr A. Pochards, the Deputy-clerk (Mr Williams, from the office of Mr J. H. Thomas) said a decrease of lid, had taken, place in the county ra.te.tlfr Griffith said that there was an impression that the rates were increasing, but that was not the case.—iMr G. Williams (Bodychain) It is dhie to the increase in the ratable value.—Mr Pochards-. It is the County 'Council we have to thank, because the county rate has been reduced by ljid. (>UTDOOR-RELUE!F. —The amounts paid in outdoor-relief for the four half-^ears ended March were as follow:—1906, £ &526; 1905, £5371; 1904 £ 5509; 1903, d65148. The great- est increase had taken place in the Llandwrog district. In 1903, the ortdoor-relief in that district amounted to J31601, whilst for the six months ended September last it was JB1848. In the 'Carnarvon district, the increase during the four years was very small; it v. as JE1435 in 1903, and £ 1452 for the last six months. LIST OF PAUPERS.—A letter was read from the Local Government Board, afking the officialis to prepare every year a special list of those in receipt of relief with particulars as to their families, etc.—The letter had been under the consideration of the, (Finance Committee, and it was stated that a report would be sub- mitted to the next meeting. THE MEMBERS AND THEIR PHOTO- GRAPHS.—It was stated that the subscriptions received towards the local expenses of the recent Poor-ffaw Conference held; in the town amounted to B55 9s. The expenses were j326 Is, an' there was a, balance in hanid. of £7 8s. A committee that had had the matter under consideration lecommended that the balance should be divided as follows :—Nurses' District Association, Fbcnezer, £1; do., SLlariberis, £1; do., INantlle "We. L2- do., Rhostryfan, JB1; do., Carnarvon, £ 2; do.. Dwyran, &s.—Mr A. Richards aid it ought to be made clear that the money was subscribed by the guardians, and did not belong to the ratepayers.—The Chair- man explained that the money would go to the associations and not to the nurses themselves.— Mr J. Lloyd Williams The committee were not unanimous.-The Chairman The recommenda- tion is that of the majority.—Mr J. F. Roberts said that he was not of the same opinion as the majority, and -reposed that the money should go towards purchasing copies of the photograph that was taken of the delegates to the confer- ence, including the members of the (Board at Vaynol.—iMr T. Jones (Waenfawr) seconded the motion.—iMr W. M. Roberts gave notice that he would move that the money be divided as fol- lows:—d&l Is to St. Mark's Home, Carnarvon £1 Is +,)1 Orphanage: £1 Is to Caeaithraw Home; and the Test to the Carnar- von Cottage Hospital.—Mr Ingham: All to Carnarvon.—iMr W. M. Roberts: The Cottage 'Hospital is used as illl ch by country people as by townspeople.—On a- division, there was a large majority in favour of buying ph: iocraiphs. —Mr W. M. Roberts then rose to mcfe his re- solution, but it was pointed out that it was not in order, as the'Board had already decided, by a large majority, against dividing the money.— 'Mr T. iG. Jones (relievinsr-officer) said that there was not sufficient money in hand to buy a photo- graph for each member and ofjicial that had sub- scribed. One shilling per head more was ro- an ired.—-Mr W. M. Roberts.: I move that tho.Wo who voted for buying the photographs should' T)1Y the difference. (laughter).—Mr Rees Hughes said thart. the photographer's charge was 3s 3d for the photograph, and he had declined to make a reduction.—A deputation was appoint- ed to wait upon Mr Kinsley, the photographer, in order, if possible, to come to better terms. RESCUE WORK.—,Mrs Darbishire (Mayor- ess) was appointed to represent the Union on a committee to consider various matters con- tained in the oaner read at the Poor-Law Con- ference by Mi-as'Chimpnevs on "The treatment of young mothers in workhouses, including the question of rescue work."

WALES AND TEMPERANCE j REFORM CONFERENCE AT BANGOR. INTOXICANTS ON BOARD STEAMERS. TRADING IN THE CHURCHES. The annual meetings and cocferenice of the Arvon and Vale of Conway Temperance were held in Bamgor this week. PUBLIC MEETING. On Tuesday evening, a public meeting was held at Twrgwyn Chapel, under the presidency of Dr Evans (Brynkiiiallt). He was supported by the Rev Wynn Davies (pastor of the chapel) and other ministers and laymen. Councillor W. G. Thomas, Carnarvon, in the course of an address, referring to the position of Wales with regard to temperance, said they in Wales were entitled to something more in the way of temperance legislation than they were prepared for in England, for Wales was prepared to go to greater lengths than England in dealing with the evil of intemperance. For example, every member of Parliament repre- senting Wales was pledged, to local option, and was generally understood to be prepared to viq/te for apeciafl temperance legislation for Wales (hear, hear). Under these circumstances he (Mr Thomas) did not see why Wales should wait for England (hear, hear). Other speakers followed. THE CONFERENCE. The conference was held on Wednesday, un- der the presidency of the Rev R. Rowlands ('Bangor), chairman of the Association. INTOXICANTS ON STEAMERS. The Secretary (the Rev Ellis Jones) sub- mitted the annual report of the Executive Committe, who had, among other things, en- deavoured to strengthen the hands of states- men by suggesting amendments in temperance legislation. The committee rejoiced that the committee of the National Eisteddfod at Oar- narvon had shown full readiness to comply with the committee's request to exolude too sale of intoxicants from the Pavilion grounds, Importance was attached to the teaching of temperance in the elementary schools, but up to the present the Carnarvonshire Education Authority had done nothing or next to nothing to promote this object, one reason being that the time taibles of the school swere said to be already overcrowded. During the year the sub-committee appointed to deal with the ques- tion of the sale of intoxicants on board steamers. had worked diligently, and had secured the support of leading men not only in the counties of Carnarvon and Anglesey, but also in Liverpool. The work could not be regarded .as complete until the Bale of intoxicants on board steamers on Sunday had become as illegal as in a public-house ashore. The committee had as- oertained enough to know that in its nresent state the law could not interfere with the traffic on board steamers, even thoujgh it accounted for frequent cases of drunkenness and for ser- ious accidents to drunken persons. It was, therefore, evident that much more work lay ahead, and its accomplishment was not rendered easy by the discouragements which came even from friendly quarters. Following the adoption of the report the Chairman referred to the encouraging prospects of temperance legislation owing to the fact of so many Liberal and Labour leadens having promised to support such legislation. It be- hoved temperance reformers to be wise and not refuse a portion of the loaf if they could not get the whole loaf (hear, hear). The way of salvation, however, lay not in the direction of St. Stephen's. The work must be done by the Church of Christ. CATERING AT SHOWS. Mr H. E. Jones (Talysarn) moved a resolu- tion expressing gratification at the action of the Carnarvonshire and Anglesey Agricultural Society and the growing tendency of temper- ance friends to discourage the sale of intoxi- cants on show grounds. Mr O. W. R f>erts (Llandudno), insecondimg the resolution, ma-intained that if intoxicants were to be excluded from show -rounds and similar public resorts temperance people must be prepared to supply the needs of visitors. Miss Pritchard (Birmingham), organising I secretary of the North Wales Women's Temper- ance Association, gave interesting instances of efforts made 'by ladies to provide temperance luncheons and refreshment on agricultural show grounds and at auction sales, which in* some places, had proved so successful as to pre- vent publicans from catering (cheers). The Rev Ceidiog Roberts commented upon the unsatisfactory nature of the catering too often to be found in temperance houses, and said tfliat such houses ought to be conducted on business lines. DRINKING HAiRTTS OF CHURCH I MEMBERS. The Rev Rhys J. Huws (Bethesda) felt that- it was the duty of temperance reformers to carry on temperance refreshment-houses even at some sacrefice. Let them not create the inT- pression that the great object was1 to make a dividend. They as temperance people had no moral right to make a 10 per cent. profit on tho sale of food. He was becoming more and more convinced dlaily that the churches were develop- ing into commercial corporations. They had already kililed the bookseller by becoming their own booksellers—-(laughter),—and they were in j dfuruger of doing injury to other businesses. H* also ventured to say that wit. not for the drinking habits of chicrch members the drink trade would very Soon come to an end in many -localities. He thought that in view of the havoc made by strong drink a pledge of total abstinence should be asked of all new mem- bers. The resolution was carried unanimously, and it was decided to draw the special attention of the ladies interested in temperance work to the advisability of catering on temperance lines at agricuilturaJ shows and other public gatherings of a like nature. ga DISINTERESTED MANAGEMENT CONTWIMNED. The Rev John Griffith (Llanfairfechan) read a. paper on "Disinterested management," in I which he offered uncompromising opposition i to placing the drink trade in the hands either of a company or of a municipality. I The Rev Wynn Davies (Bangor) took a simi- lar view. He was convinced that one result of ptacin.s- the trade in the hands of respetcbaible people would be to throw a. clo&k of respecta- ibility over the traffic and so strengthen its position. He moved that the Association en- dorse the repeatedly expressed opposition of j the Temtperance Associations of the country to all proposals to municipalise the liquor traffic | and of any measures, by disinterested manage- ment or otherwise, which would provide for a. system of public monopoly in the sale of intoxi- cating drinks. Mr John Paull (Carnarvon) seconded the re- solution, which was carried, and copies ordered to he sent to the Prime Minister and various members of ParLiament. LEGISLATION FOR WALES. On the motion of Mr H. E. Jones, it was de- cided to urge the Government in their forth- coming temperance legislation to inolude pro- visions prohibiting the holding of public auc- tions in public-houses and controlling the sale of intoxicants on pleasure steamers, especially on Sunday. A resolution was also passed calling tipon the Gbvernment to pass special legislation for Wales. PROPOSED TEMPERANCE SYLLABUS, ) Papers were read by the Rev Ceidio-r Roberts and Mrs Vaughan Dawee (Carnarvon) on the necessity for the systematic teaching of temper- ance in the elementary schooila. The former also moved that the Carnarvonshire Education Committee be urged to adopt a. temperance syl- lalbus for all the sohooJs under their charge, ■ and to appoint a lecturer, who should also act as organiser. The Rev Wvnn Davies seconded the motion, which was adopted- OBLIGATIONS OF THE CHURCHES. The Rev Cy'ndldel'w Williams (fPemygTOes) spoke on "The obligation of the churches in face of the recent revival," and moved a resolu- tion urgain,? the churchies to provide pure ples- snures for young people. The resolution was adopted. A deputation from the local Free Church II Coimeil attended to exit end the Association a welcome. In the evening a public meeting was ?d- dresrved bv the Revs Keinion Thomas, W. R. Owen, and Miw Jones (Hendreforion).

THE MUNICIPAL EILECTIONS. The elections throughout the country gener- ally have apparently not altemd the balance of parties to any great extent. 'Liberal and Con- servative gains have been pretty equally divid- ed. Labour defeats are a feature of the elec- tions.
PORTMADOO SCHOONER WRECKQDD. The portmadoc schooner "ISnaefell," bound from Portmadoc to tMiiddeMort with a cargo of slates;, went ashore at 'Hirtshals, near the Scaw, yesterday morning.

RTVAL MUSSEIL FISHERS. PARKGATE MEN MOBBED AT ABERDOVEY. Aberdovey was thrown into turmoil yester- day, when a number of Parkgate fishermen de- fied the inhabitants by returning there to gather mussels. The presence of a posse of .Merionethshire police, who had been despatched there, fearing another disturbance, tranquil- lized the inhabitants and prevented open hos- tilities.
RUTHFN COUNCIL OFFICIALS. At a special meeting of the Ruthin Town Council, Mr Baldwin Griffith, who has acted as deputy town-clerk for many years past, was unanimously appointed to the vacant office. The Council also adopted a recommendation of a committee that Mr John Hughes, the borough surveyor, be called upon to send in within three days notice of his resignation. such notice to take effect in one month. The Surveyor asked for an explanation, and, as none was given, stated that he was about to take proceedings against the Council.
SOUTH WALES COAL STRIKE. .Of fifty pits in the Rhondda Valley, employ- ing approximately 45,000 men, not more than ten stopped work yesterday in virtue of the notices served a month ago on the non-unionist question. At the remaining forty pits, all the non-unionists have joined the federation, ren- derin-g a cessation of work unnecessary. In the case of the remaining ten pits, it is anticipated that the stoppage will be of brief duration, there being few men now outside the federa- tion.

A LLANGEFNI BANKRUPT RISKS OF THE. GREENGROCERY ,TRA:DE.. At the Bangor (Bankruptcy Court, yesterday,, William Owien, ofi IHSglh-sftrjee^' Llangefni, greengrocer and confectioner, returned bis un- secured liabilities at £ 236 lis 5d, and estimatedi his assets at £ 55; alleged causes of failure, "illness and waste of greengrocery stock. Mr D. P. Thomas, Carnarvon, appearedior thet bankrupt, who stated that he formerly resided at Carnarvon, but about 20 years ago he re-* moved to Llangefni. His w^/fe carried on moved to Llangefni. His w¡ilfe carried on business there as dressmaker, in which she was engaged before he married her. In 1898 he began business as a greengrocer. At that time he and his wife had a capital of albout £64.; He was in financial difficulties before he left! Carnarvon, but he believed his debts wer81 paid on that occasion were paid in full. Hfll had been insolvent for the last two years, butj kept hoping that trade would improve. Ha considered he had lost at least £ 200 owing to, fruit and other stock becomiing bad.
PEERS AND THE EDUCATION BILL WARNING OT MR LILOYD -G EORG-E. The President of the Board of Trade, Me Lloyd-George, wms the principal speaker at a largely attended Liberal meeting held last nighti ill the Corn lExchange, Spalding. A communis cation was read from Lord 'Carrington (Presi- dent of the (Board of Agriculture) expressing regret at his inability to attend. 'Mr "Lloyd-'Georee saicL lie had been listening to the debates in the Bouse of Lords during the last two days. He wished he could sav that night all he thought about the House oi Lords. If they asked his opinion three weeks hence he might, be able to tell' this better. The poors were engaged now in bowdlerising the Educa- tion, Bill', in softening down all improper sug- gestions about popular control, about the aboli- tion of tests, and in cutting down all unpleasant hints about the power of municipalities, so that it might be made a nice and proper measure to be put into the hands of the clergy without wounding their susceptibilities. That was the process which was at present going on. There was to be a new and revised edition of the measure. The chief editor was the Archbishop of Canterbury, who was being veiy ably as- sisted by Lord Halifax and the Duke of Nor- folk. They had just beguin tbe work Of grace^ but where it was going to end he did not knowH It would terminate, probably, in a way which would be far from agreeable to the TTouse 01 Lords. Nobody asked for the 'Education Bill of 1902, which had been made ten times worse when it left the House of Lards, and so much ■so that even Mr Balfour could not stema-chi some of the things it contained, and had to cut them out. At the election of 19C6 there was a clear mandate by the country in relation to the matter, and yet the House of Lords, which was responsible to nobody, sought to override the decision of men whom the nation had chosen to do its -work. It was an absol- uteiy intolerable situation (cheers). Concluding a forcible plea for social reform, Mr Lloytf HeorG-e said It was true that they had great, wealthy a greater accumulation of wealth per head of the population than was to be found JI1 a,ny other land, but under such a boasted condition of affairs they ought to be ashamed that there should be even one of their humiblest inhabitants walking thai streets in racs with no prospect, in many cases, but the workhouse and the pauper s grave. Such were the thinga which ought to, aim at putting and end to, and when there was so much talk about religious instruction let it remembered that one of the first lessons of Christianity was to feed the hungry aaid succour the weak (cheers).
