PRESBYTERIAN CONFERENCE AT COLWYN BAY. ATTACK ON ROMAN CATHOLICISM. A large number of delegates and others I., ZD who are attending the annual Conference at Colwyn Bay this week of the English churches of the Presbyterian Church of Wales arrived at Colwyn Bay on Mon- day, where the local Reception Committee had made arrangements for their enter- tainment. The Committee, is presided over by the Rev. John Edwards, the treasurer being Mr R. Hughes Jones, and the hon. secretary Mr S. Glynne Jones. The reception of some 200 delegates took place in the afternoon at the Public Hall by Mr David Lewis. Deputations attend- ed from the Urban District Council, the English and Welsh Free Church Councils, and the Vale of Conway monthly meeting of the Welsh Calvinistic Methodist Church to offer a hearty welcome to Col- wyn Bay. Dr. Cousins, the president of the Eng- lish section of the Free Church Council, said the occasion was one in which thej- could emphasise their unity in the faith. They represented the warp and woof of Nonconformity (though which was the warp and which they woof was not for him to determine). The pattern they were trying to weave was in acordance with New Testament instructions. They were an important and indispensible part of the bulwarks of Protestantism, and they recognised the need for the closest vigil- ance to prevent the threatened inroads of Roman Catholicism in their beloved land. The hydra-headed monster had been most bold of late and had evidently thrown aside all reserve. When the chief Romanist organ in this country informed them that the Eucharistic Congress just held was "the public and official return of our Lord to England," and that by this Con- gress Jesus "will t&.ke formal and solemn possession of the nation and will once more reign over the length and breadth of the land and waits to receive the homage of the English," it was vain for men to talk and write in that fashion and expect to be regarded as ordinary citizens, especially in view of the dark and ominous interpretation their own past .supplied to such utterances. The. claims of Rome stopped short of nothing but complete domination over all authorities. Wales was not exempt from Rome's machina- tions. Some Romish religious orders had been dumped down in the very heart of the Principality in spite of the rightful boast that Wales was the strongest fort of Nonconformity. The danger lay in the Nonconformists' own indifference, and therefore the Presbyterian Church was welcomed to Colwyn Bay with gratitude because of its influence. Many of its members were, honoured members of Par- liament. The Rev. Edward Lewis, New- town, president of" the Conference, re- sponded, and Mr David Lewis replied to a vote of thanks to himself. The Rev. G. Campbell Morgan preached to a, large congregation in the Pier Pavilion.
