Mr. Owen M. Edwards. THE SOUL OF WELSH LITERATURE." A well-merited tribute was paid, at the Cal- vinistic Methodist Sassiwn held at Llan- idloes, to the splendid services of Mr O. M. Ed- wards tin the cause of Welsh literature and patriotism. The Rev. John Williams, Brynsiencvn, called special attention to the invaluable services ren- dered to Welsh literature by Mr. O. M. Edwards, chief inspector of schools for Wales. In the midst of important and multifarious duties Mr. Edwards had found time to publish a series of valuable books dealing with Welsh subjects, with very little prospect of being re- couped for the expense. Yet, so far as he knew, Mr. Edwards's services had never been publicly recognised. (Hear, hear.) He had hoped that the Uni/ersity of Wales would have found suf- ficient merit in Mr. Edwards's services to acknowledge them in some form. (Applause.) They had done so in other directions, but the man of all others who had done the most for Wales had not been so recognised. He moved that the Association -should now do so. (Hear hear.) The Rev. Evan Jones seconded. In his opinion Mr. O. M. Edwards was the soul of Welsh literature—(applause),—and long might he live to serve his country. As for the University of Wales,—well, that institution was born blind-- (laughtet ),and so far no one seemed to have applied clay and spittle to remove the blind- ness. (Hear, bear, and laughter.) There was no need of an aeroplane to take this institution out of sight. (Laughter.) The motion was carried unanimously.
