PROPOSED WELSH COUNCIL j DISCUSSED BY THE LORDS AND REJECTED. j BISHOP OWEN'S UNPATRIOTIC SPEECH. The House of 'Lords' consideration of the Education Bill progressed another stage on Wednesday, and at the evening sitting clause 26 was reached, this being the proposal to form a special Council for Wales. Earl CawdJor moved the rejection of the clause, which, he said, meant not this educational independence alone, but Home Rule also. OLoid Rendel scouted the Home Rule idea, and said the great questions; in Wales were disestablishment, complete national education, and temperance reform.

The Bishop of Hereford, I whose diocese includes part of two Welsh coun- ties, botli spoke and voted for the clause. The iBiisihop of St. Asaph and the Bishop of Ches- ter were conspicuously absent, so that the Welsh I epaiaoopate was divided.
