Notes and News. MESSRS. Lloyd-George, Vincent Evans, and party, are due back from the continent at the end of this week. THE great Nonconformist conference is to be held at Cardiff on October 10th. Dele- gates from all parts of the country are ex- pected to be present. MR. McKENNA promises that the next Education Bill .will be a strong one. Well, we shall see, we had similar promises from Mr. Birrell, but it soon fizzled out. THE last session of Parliament, with all its disappointments, was one of the most fruitful within living memory. The number of small but much needed reforms it accom- plished was simply marvellous. IT is admitted by all critics that the two persons who have created a record for work, and have been the most successful during the session are Mr. D. Lloyd-George and Mr. John Burns. OWING to summer not arriving before the middle of September, several of the leading Welsh watering places are petitioning the railway companies to extend their holiday excursions for another month. THE Rev. Dr. Cynddylan Jones once de- scribed the white man as God's image in Ivory," and the black man as God's image in Ebony." BOTH of Wales's most talked of men are in Switzerland just now, viz., Mr. Lloyd-George and Mr. Evan Roberts. MR. LLOYD-GEORGE is described in T.P.'s Weekly as a born administrator and orator combined. THE Swansea Eisteddfod Pavilion is being well utilised. In addition to the Welsh National Eisteddfod, the Baptist Gymanfa Ganu, as well as the Calvinistic Methodist Gymanfa Ganu, have been held in the spacious building, and last week it was the locale of the South Wales Grocers Exhibition. THE Nonconformist denomination, which has the largest number of Welsh churches in Cardiff, is the Calvinistic Methodist. It has also the largest number in London. THE most popular man with the majority of the South Wales masses just now is the one who can best kick a football! IN reading the report of Cardigan Town Council," remarks a correspondent, "one might imagine that the future destiny of the British Empire is being considered, so grandiose are the deliberations." CARDIFF and Swansea are the two biggest and most important places in Wales. Never- theless they have the two poorest Parliamen- tary representatives in the Principality. A CORRESPONDENT writes "It is extremely amusing to notice how Welsh lodging-house keepers at Aberystwyth, Llandudno, Bar- mouth, and other seaside resorts, call their houses by such penny novelette names as the Lilacs, the Hollies, Ivy Holme, Grassville, &c. Oh Die Shon Dafydd, thy home is on the Cambrian coast! THE Vicar of Llanidloes, who is a very gifted Welshman, gives the following English translation of one of Ceiriog's stanzas on Cerddi Cymru :— co Songs of Wales live in our ears Through the swiftly passing years; Moaning stormwinds as they blow, Murmur songs of long ago." THE Rev. D. J. Hiley, who has just ac- cepted the pastorate of Chatsworth Road Baptist Church, London, as successor to the late Rev. Archibald Brown, is a Welshman. Mr. Riley, who is the son of a Welsh tin- plate worker, has been pastor of Broadmead Baptist Church, Bristol, for the last 14 years, and is considered to be one of the leading Baptist preachers of the day. IT is exceedingly incongruous to see an- nouncements of Christmas clubs and Christ- mas cards in our shop-windows these sultry days. ALDERMAN ROBERT HUGHES, J.P., Ex-Lord Mayor of Cardiff, and President of the Cardiff Cymmrodorion Society, has taken a beautiful residence at Sully. True to his patriotic feelings this doughty champion of the Welsh language and Welsh national interests generally has decided to call his new residence Gorphwysfa." ONE of the most unassuming of men is the Archdruid Dyfed. There is far more side in the little amateur poet who has won eighteen pence at some competitive meeting than there is in Dyfed. Thus writes a KELT observer from Llandrindod.
