THE CHURCHES. WELSH EDUCATION POLICY. The Bishop of St. Asaph has, in answer to a correspondent, made a statement on the present educational deadlock in Wales. After a reference to the abortive attempt to secure a durable com- promise in the diocese, his lordship contends that the illegality of the no rate" resolution passed by the Welsh County Councils is beyond question He says that while in the St. Asaph diocese there are several thousands more children in the Church schools than in any other in Wales, his experience was that not a single school in the diocese wtmld be lost for want of funds. In many of th» mriohps there was at present only a National school 3 yet the County Councils now asked th, ratepayers of those parishes, whose schools they were soinK deliberately to starve, to pay an e^eationafratf of which those parishes were not to receive, a penny and this in the name of conscience and freedom "Our position brie-fly is this," he proceeds "We are ready to make every concession which the law allows. We are ready to promote legislation which will give legal sanction to those mutual concessions which we beheve equity and the best interest of education demand as essential to any permanent settlement. Until that is done we shall hold our schools. To uphold the cause of religious instruc- tion in elementary schools Churchmen in this diocese have given more than EoCO.WO to the building and the maintenance of our Church schools during the last forty years.
