CHURCH COMMISSION I ARRAN'G'EMEOTS FOR FUTURE ) EVIDENCE. Mr William Jones, M.P., attended, as a de- putation from the Welsh. members and the (Jentrai National Committee at a special meet- ing of the Oamia.rvonahire Disestablishment Evidence Committee on Saturday. He gave an account of what has already been done in ¡' the way of preparing evidence tor the effective .presentation of the case for UiiseetabLishment. etIe had personally visited all the county com- mitters in South Wales, ajid most of them were in a forward state of preparedness. The jrea-t Nonconformist denominations had now nominated for the greater part their official witnesses, each deniomination preparing and presenting its own cas.e quite independently of the national case and of the C;as.e for each, county. It was now understood that the Commission on resuming its sittings in December would take at least a couple of days in considering documentary evidence, and that consequently witnesses would not be called before the second week in December. The first witnesses now proposed to be called are the official witnes&es on behalf of the Calvmistic Methodist As- sembly, whose evidence is practically "ready for presentation. The Methodist case will be presented by eigiht or nine different witnesses, each taking a separate portion of the field pro- posed to be covered. Following these- prob- ably early in the now year would be the Con- gregatiional witnesses, wlhose ca&e, it was pre- suimed, would by that time be ready for pre- sentation. Like the Methodists, the Oongre- nationalists have divided their cases between a small numiber of expert witnesses. It was intimated that the Baptists proposed sulbnut- ting evidence by co%ity associations. Mr W. Jones thouigtht it desirable it should be gene- rally understood that denominational evidence as such should be presented by and on be- ■ half of the Central organisation of each de- nomination and not by county associations, as the latter course would too largely multiply tine number of witnesses n/nd unduly prolong the inquiry. The Wesleyan witnesses, it waG 1jnldierstood, 'h\a.d' alsq been nominated, and would be prepared at an early date to appear before the Commission. A number of wit- nesses would also be required from eaoh county, and half-a-dloaen would probably be allotted to Carnarvonshire and other counties in proportion. Mr W. Jones expressed him- self as very well satisfied with the progress made sp far throughout the Principality.
