This Compmy is formed to buy and take over two contracts, to purchase eighteen freehold quit rent, agricultural Farms or Estates, and certain undivided parts or shares in other farms believed to comprise auriferous lands in the Traiuvaal, formerly the pro- perty of the Oriental Bant Corporation (now in liquidation), and of Luuwig Julius Lippert, Esq., of Hamburg, of an estimated area of 90,300 acres or there- abouts, and to work or re-sell the properties. Five of the properties are situate within the well- known pod producing district of Lydei.berg, one of the most important South Africau Goldtieids, and four or such Farms have been surveyed. Twelve other of the Farms are "ituate in Waterberg, three in Middel- bunr, and two in Rusteuburi;. Mr A. Havelock Smith, in a report made to the late owners of the property called Bot..clifonteiii, says, "CoiU discoveries of considerable value are being made in this District." Several of the Farms are reported to be rich in other minerals, and the whole are valuable as agricultural land. The Company also acquire twelve mining claims situate oil the bhebJ. Hill de Kaap Goldtieids, in the Barberton District of South Africa, and known as the Pandora. Block. Mr William Wilcox. M.I.C.E., in speaking of the Pandora property, states It is in a diiect line wHh all the best gold properties on the Sheba ran¡:;e, having nIl the east the noted 'Golden Quarry,' 'Oriental,' Nil Desperanaum,' Annies Fortune,' and The Hercules'; to the west the lqufa: Butterfly,' Blue Rock,' and the renowned Kimberley Sheba,' one ot the latest discoveries. All these claims run on the same line of reef. 011 its south it is joined by the 'United,' while to the north lie 'ateyna Block,' 'New Chum,' and the Victory Hill,' claims in close proximity. As a matter of fact, the Pandora property is surrounded by a network of good gold- bearing properties." The price agreed to be paid for the whole of the Estates or Farms, and shares of Farms aforesaid, ill- cluding the minerals and 12 mining claims, is E81,600, which is payable in cash and shares in manner pro- vided by the agreements. After providing payment of the purchase money to the Vendor, ■ £ 28,'i00 of working capital has been allowed for in tixing the capital of the Company. Apart from the mineral value of the Estates, it is considered that the Farms, when sub-let for the culti- vation of articles of Colonial pioduce, such as tobacco, conee, cotton, sugar, etc. (all of which are stated to grow well in the districts where tiie estatei are situatt.), a very handsome income should result to the Company. The revenue of the Transvaal in 1835 was £ 161,600. In 1888 it had increased to the enormous total of The gold exports (as reported in the Cape Argus") from Cape Colony and Natal for tho year ending December, 1888, amounted to and up to August 31st, lcki9, were £ 939,616. It is, therefore, fair to assume there will be a further increase of one- third more by December, making a grand total of 1;1,262,821 for the year 18139. It is scarcely practicable to estimate with any cer- tainty ths profits which may result from an invest- ment in tho Company's shares but judging by the present prices of other Land and Exploration Com- panies in the Transvaal, this undertaking should prove remunerative. Prospectuses and forms of application can be ob- tained from the Bankers, Brokers, Solicitors, and at the Company's Offices. September 28th, 1889. The National Provincial Bank of England.

FRIDA Y, OCTOBER 4, 1889. STRONG DOSES OF DOGMA. THE papers read at the Park Hall, Cardiff, yesterday morning, were, on the whole, flat, stale, and unprofitable. They were far below the average of Wednesday's produc- tions. Not, we presume, because the readers were inferior in education or intelli- gence, but rather because the subject was one in which the clergy persistently cling to a fallacy, and refuse to let it go. Free education and religious instruction in day- schools were the leading topics. Lord NORTON led off with a paper which proved him to be a teacher or a disciple of the Rev J. R. DIGGLE, who is now equally well known with his lordship in school work. Free education is strongly objected to by both these authorities, but for reasons which will hardly bear examina- tion. They seem to think that where parents are able to pay they should be com- pelled to pay fees, but they overlook the fact that the parents who can pay are more heavily taxed and rated than poorer persons are. Besides, they forget that while the fee is exacted, many of those who are really too poor to pay them will, from a spirit of pride and self-respect, struggle to do so rather than beg in forma pauperis for relief. When will the clergy learn that it is downright humiliation to be forced to accept of alms and doles ? Every person has a right to free education for his children in a State which makes education compulsory. But the whole secret of tbe opposition to free education seems to be that it will ultimately and necessarily place all schools on the same footing, place them all under public control, and, in the end, reduce all to the one com- mon system under school-board supervision. The clergy understand very well that the ratepayers will never consent to allow schools supported cut of public funds to be managed and controlled by private irresponsible committees and cliques. Mr DIGGLE objected yesterday to a board of ratepayers being substi. tuted for a board or committee of parents, but who are the ratepayers if they are not the parents of the children 1 Or, again, is it not a well-known fact that the committees or managers of Church schools consist mostly of the parson and some of his richer friends, and that the parents of the children attending the school have almost no voice whatever in the school management But it is when we come to what may be described as the doggerel of Canon Ev A DANIEL that we see the real in- firmity of the clergy's idea of day-school teach- ing. The National Society wa3 not formed for the purpose of giving the prominent place to those subjects which demand first attention in the board schools. The schools of the National Society, that is to say, Church schools, were established, according to the express provision of their own charter, to educate the children of the poor into the principles of the Church of England. That is their main task. Every- thing else must be subordinated to that. But does not every one know that that never was the chief object or aim of the board school system ? The aim of the latter is to fit children for life and its occupations as citizens of a great, free, industrial, and commercial country. The Church of England, with its catechism and dogmas, was never taken into account. In all that Canon EvAJ. DANIEL said about the value of religious teaching, and the obligation to impart it to children, we entirely concur. We also believe that it is necessary for children to have food and clothing. Edu- cation without the necessaries of life would be worth nothing; but when we want meat and potatoes for our children, or a new dress or pair of boots, we do not expect the Government to provide these things, nor do we go to the day-school to purchase them, It is no part of the duty of the State to provide spiritual training for the children. Besides, we cannot agree about the re- ligious instruction to be given, Canon DANIEL wishes the dogmas of his own Church to be taught in all their fulness; but if a parent object to the doctrines of the Church of England, he will tell him that the child will be protected by the Conscience Clause, that is to say, he will not be taught any religion. Now, why so 1 Why should the choice lie between Canon DANIEL'S religion and no religion at all ? This is manifestly unfair but it is here precisely that the arrogance of the State Church comes out. The clergy act as if no religious teaching but their own is worth giving. This is indescribable inso- lence. There are many religious persons who hold some of the dogmas of the Church of England in utter abhorrence, and yet the clergy would tell such persona that their religion is not worth teaching. In fact, Canon DANIEL objected to the religion taught in board schools as being in theory a religion of residues, and in practice an allotropic religion, varying with each ex- pounder. He still further objected to it on the ground that it was a religion without a creed, without a church, without sacra- ments, and takes no cognisance of what a baptised child is or what he is not to believe. All this shows that these clergymen are impractical men. These subjects cannot possibly be taught in a school supported out of a common fund. As for the Conscience Clause, it may protect the child from Church teaching, but it subjects both parent and child to the persecutionand the idle tittle- tattle of the tongues of religious slanderers. Some of Canon GREGORY'S notions must have sounded rather odd in the ears of many who heard him. His object was to point out what might be effected in the way of organis- ing definite religious teaching in school board districts. For this purpose he sug- gested systematic catechising in church. It is astonishing how incapable these clergy are of distinguishing between religious teaching and their own catechism, which, after all, has very little religion in it. But the most singular proposition that he advanced was the institution of night schools which children should be bribed to attend, the bribes for boys being cricket clubs for summer and football clubs for winter. How this would do in Wales, where so many religious people look with some degree of horror on football, we cannot say, but surely it is a reflection upon the spiritual gifts of the clergy of the Church of England if they have to call in the aid of such handmaidens as these to enable them to do their work. Fancy cricket and football clubs set up as induce- ments to listen to prosy prelections on religious dogmas.
THE CHURCH AND INTERMEDIATE EDUCATION, THE Hon. G. T. KENYON must have had a very uncomfortable time of it at the Colonial Hall yesterday. Having read a paper—a sensible and instructive one—on the Welsh Intermediate Education Bill, in the passing of which he played so prominent a part, and having indirectly appealed for some recognition of the services of those who had i } taken care to "safeguard the interests of the Church," what must have been his surprise to find himself made the object of attack for not having taken care to secure far more than he had actually done for the Church Well might he say, as shaft after shaft was levelled at him, "Save me from my friends We will ven- ture to say that seldom has Mr KENYON received at the hands of Nonconformists much worse treatment than that to which he was subjected by his own sect and his own party at the Colonial Hall. The discourse of Archdeacon EMERY was a long tirade against the secular character of the He prayed that its operation should never be extended to England. Now, whatever may be the abilities of Arch- deacon EMERY, and whatever the special qualifications he possessed to speak with authority on the general question of Inter- mediate Education, we unhesitatingly say that a more injudicious speech could, under the circumstances, hardly have been de- livered. If Churchmen in Wales were to act in connection with the administration ot the new Act in the spirit of Archdeacon EMERY'S speech, we venture to say there would soon be a more serious rupture and a more bitter quarrel between Noncon- formists and Churchmen than we have yet seen, and that the inevitable result would be either that the Act would become practi- cally a dead letter, or the Nonconformist majority in Wales would perforce in self-defence be compelled to subject Churchmen to such indignities and disabilities as the?o Nonconformists themselves have so long suffered. Dean VAUGHAN'S note of warning could appropriately have been uttered before the Archdeacon commenced his tirade. The Dean reminded the Congress that Noncon- formists were in these matters very' much what Churchmen chose to make them. Dean OWEN justified the confidence which many Nonconformists have placed in him by declaring it as his conviction, based upon personal knowledge and experience, that Nonconformists were quite as anxious as Churchmen could be to make the Act a Bnccess by administering it in a just and liberal spirit. The speech of Archdeacon EMERY, on the other hand, was practically a challenge and a warning, and was of such a character as will induce the Nonconformist members of the County Councils to be very careful indeed in making their selection of members to serve upon the Joint Education Committees. It is well that the issue should be placed clearly before the Church Congress disperses. Taking the speeches delivered yesterday afternoon as our authority, we say that the Clergy of the Church of England hope to secure for Intermediate Schools carried on on Church of England principles an equal share of Government Grants towards their maintenance as will be devoted to those under the authority of the County Councils. That principle was clearly enunciated. In reply, we say that so far as the Liberal party is concerned, so far as Protest- ant Nonconformists of all denominations are concerned, so far as the vast majority of the Welsh people are concerned, no grants from rates or public funds can for the future be given in aid of any institution on whose governing bodies the ratepayers are not adequately represented. More than that, money derived from public sources must not be allowed to be utilised for the teaching of the doctrines of any particular church. Archdeacon EMERY wanted Church of England Intermediate Schools, with Church of England religious teaching, where the interests of Nonconformist children would be efficiently" sfeguarded by a con- "science clause. Would Archdeacon EMERY wish to see his children compelled to attend a Baptist, or a Methodist, or a Congrega- tional Intermediate School, where the pecu- liar doctrines of those sects would be taught, and feel satisfied in knowing that the inte- rests of his children were "safeguarded by "a conscience clause?" Neither do we think that Dean OWEN was quite as honest as he generally is when he said that the re- ligious difficulty in Wales is nothing but the ghost of a dead past, that there have been no religious grievances in connection with the schools of Wales. It may be true that the children of Nonconformist parents were freely entrusted to his charge in the fullest confidence that nothing would be done directly or indirectly to proselytize them. But we would ask him, what of the chances of these children when they grow up to manhood ? Would their Nonconformity then be no bar whatever to their election to I the posts of honour and emolument in the endowed schools of the Principality ? And if the Intermediate Education Act had been passed on the lines laid down by Archdeacon EMERY, how many of the Headmasters of the new schools called into existence by that Act would be selected from among Noncon- formists in proportion to the number chosen from among Churchmen ? The religious difficulty" in connection with these schools extends beyond the pupils. There were other and more practical points in the discussion which space forbids our dealing with in the present article, but which deserve the most careful, and in some cases the most favour- able, consideration. Among these we may briefly note the proposal to bring the ad- vantages of Intermediate Education within reach of our rural population by permitting, in the case of suitable Elementary Schools, a certain extension of the curriculum by the addition of an Eighth Standard j the sugges- tion that evening schools might be allowed greater latitude in the choice of a syllabus and in the arrangements for exami- nation that rural districts should not be robbed of their endowments to enrich the towns; and that endowments intended for the benefit of the poor should be preserved for the poor in the form of Exhibitions from elementary schools, and not be expended in bricks and mortar. These are among the valuable grains which may be discovered among a considerable quantity of useless chaff in the discussion on Intermediate Education at the Church Congress yester- day.
AN ATLANTIC LINER IN COL" LIS I ON. SERIOUS LOSS OF LIFE. [CENTRAL NKWS TELEGRAM.] NEW YORK, Thursday.—A terrible collision* resulting iu the los of 15 lives, occurred early yesterday morning off the coast of New- foundland. The Transatlantic stus-mw Geographique, belonging to the Bossiere Loia, of Montreal, and commanded by Captain Pousuet, left Sydney (Cape Breton) on Tuesday for Southampton with a cargo and a number of cattt" and sheep on board. All went well untii the ftcainor was about forty miles off St Pierre, at two o'clock on Wednesday morning, when tbe big staamer collided with the Nova Scotian sailing ship Minuie Swift. The latter vessel rc?eiv;d such liamage that she immediately began to settia down, and she foundered two minutes of the collision. The Minnie Swift had nn board an unusual number of persons fur a vlI¡;61 of her bize, as she had some days previously herself saved and taken on board part of the crew of a Norwegian vessel. All on board went down with the vessel, but a number managed to get on board the Geogra- phique but two women, three chil- dren, and ten men were never again seen, and were undoubtedly drowned. Meanwhile it was found that the steamer had her- self sustained serious damage, and despite the sustained efforts of the crew she sank between eight and nine hours after the collision. There was, however, ample timo to get out the three largest boats, and in these some 35 persons left the sinking steamer about seven o'clock yesterday morning. These boats have not since been heard of, but it is hoped that they have succeeded in reaching land. The third boat, containing Captain Poussct and 15 men, was picked up at sea by the schooner Sister Bs and were landed at St. Pierre.
THE CHANNEL SQUADRON, [REUTEE'S TELEG HAM. I COPENHAGEN, Thursday.—A dinner was given yesterday evening by Mr M'Donnell, the British Minister, to all the officers of the British Channel Squadron now here. The two admirals and the superior officers of the squadron will be entertained at dinner at Fredensborg to-day. To morrow, or on Saturday, the P.-ince of Wales, probably ac- companied by the King and the other princely guests, will pay a visit to the fleet.
QUEEN NATALIE, [ROTTER'S TEI.EGRAM.J BELGRADE, Thursday.—It is stated that in the event of Queen Natalie's persisting in her present unyielding attitude, the Government has resolved to introduce in the Skupshtina a bill prohibiting her Majesty from staying in Servia.
EDITORS ARRESTED FOR TREASON. IRKUTER'S TELEGRAM.] PRETOBIA, Thursday.—The editors of the Johannesburg Standard and Barberton New, have been arrested for high treason contained in newspaper articles.
END OF THE DUTCH STRIKE. [REL'TEE'S TELEGRAM.J ROTTERDAM, Thursday.—At a meeting last night ot men on strike it was, resolved that work should be resumed to-day, evsn by men employed on mineral vessels. The strike may therefor* be considered at an end.
ROWING IN AMERICA. ■; [CENTRAL NJlWS TELKGRAM.) NEW YOBK, Thursday Morning,—Some inteflo esting sculling contests were brought off at Louis- ville yesterday. Hanlan, the Canadian oarsman, beat Hamm (Americ?n) by a length over a mile courso. Hamm then entered a race with Gaudaur and Tenoyck, but was again defeated, Gaudaur running away from both men, and winning -by six lengths on a course of three miles.
ALLEGED MURDER OF A FATHER. At Ilkeston on Thursday J. Jaques was charged on the information of his brother with the murder of their father, at Horsley workhouse, near Derby. The police offered no evidence, but the bench decided to hear the information. Tha brother alleged that some weeks ago the prisoner suggested they should murder tho father. On Saturday the prisoner went out and returned on Sunday, the father afterwards being found in the house, where be lived alone, with his throat cut. One doctor said it was a case of suicide and another stated that a murder had been committed. Prisoner was remanded pending the result of the inquest,
There is no clue yet to the identity of the last Wlutecbapel victim, but tho police are keeping a. close watch oo the railway arch, which has not moved from its position since the crime. All tha men who were eugaged In building it have been arrested, and two of tbe locomotives which run over it are under suspicion, though their previous character has been eood. A wealthy gentleman in the borough has offered for a sight of the body, but he is blind. Important develop- ments are looked for.
A DISQUIETING PROPHESY; For another thirteen months the Whitechapel murders will continue. Not until the end of October, 1890, will "Jack the Ripper" be seized. Such is the decree of the stars, "Old Moore" has read them. His predictions for 1890 'are published, and the planets have told him many wonderful things. They have informed him that cigarettes are injurious to young boys. They have whispered to him that marriage is superior to free love. They have assured him that the weather will ba hot next July. Ho learns from them that Parliament wiil be busy next June, and that next August the old Bath chair will become a thing of the past. But his most startling revelation is that at the end of October" au important clue will be discovered which will ultimately lead to the detection of the villain who committed so many foul murders in the East-end of London." An astrologer must be clever who discovers so much, but he is not clever enough. If the stars are so precise why do they not disclose the very murderer himselfl Then we should not have thirteen months of anxiety. But then we should have no need of "Old Moore."
EXCITING SCENES AT A FIRE. A fire broke out at two a.m. on Thursday at Farnborough-road, Fulham, occupied by Mr Russell, who was from homo. His wife, daughter, two servants, and two lady visitors named Wallis, however, were in the house, and one of the latter raised a a alarm from the balcony. Police-constable Clarke, who first entered the house, was severely burned and was carried away insensible. The inmates were eventually rescued by Constables Jacks and Lawrence. Tbe fire was subsequently extinguished.
,<t TRAGIC^FFAliT AT BRIGHTON. A Brighton correspondent, telegraphing on Thursday eveniug, says that an elderly man named John Bullock shot his wife, Elizabeth, and then attempted to commit suicide. Tha murderer is a retired publican from London, 69 years of age, while his wife was 32. The woman is dead. Tne man is in hospital, and is not pected to recover.
THE STRIKE OF SCHOOL BOYS. The schoolboys' strike in Aberdeen still con-v tinues. The scholars attending various public schools met on Thursday, and demonstrated against the length of school hours, the number of home lessons, and other points. They impro- vised banners, which were carried in procession through the town.
SHOCKING CRUELTY TO A CHILD. At Exeter on Thursday a woman named Pass- more, who has given birth to thirteen children, only two of which are now living, was sentenced to three months' hard labour for outrageous cruelty to herdaughter, nine years old. The child lost tbe door-key, upon which the mother stood her on her head in a bucket of water, then threw water over her, next struck her on the back of the head with a. shovel, finally caught her by the hair, threw her on the ground, kicked her, and after- wards told the child to put the place tidy. Wheo remonstrated with the mother threatened to ki) the" little-devil."

BY COSMOS. 6HABB? ACTION. ONE incident in connection with Church Congress amenities calls for mention and it would be wsll if those responsible for the action complained of were, even at the last hour, to suspend their offensive operations. It is to be premised that, at a meeting of Nonconformists held in Cardiff immediately after the decision of the Congress to visit the town had been made known, it was resolved to suspend during tbe sittings all work that has any antagonism to the Establish- ment. No LiberationUt action has consequently been taken; and the voluminous literature of the movement has been kept locked up in the local office during tbe current week. Further, a great number of Nonconformists in Cardiff and Penarth opened their houses, and are entertaining members of tbe Congress. Every effort has been made both to welcome Churchmen and to prevent even the appearance of antagonism or discourtesy. So far, however, from this feeling being reciprocated, an attempt has been made to utilise the Congress week for Church defence work handbills and leaflets have been distributed, and placards posted on the walls, giving reasons for" establishment" and the like. It may be that this is the work of only a section of the Church party, but whoever is responsible has the demerit of making very poor return for the courtesy exhibited by the capital of Noncon- formist Wales. MISSIONARIES AND MISSION WORK. THOSE who were privileged to hear the stirring addresses delivered at the missionary meeting of the Welsh Baptist Union at Llandudno will long remember the exceptional fire that characterized the whole proceedings, and the high tone and confident spirit of the speakers. Tbe opening address of Dr Evans, Ffestiniog, gave a fitting keynote to such experienced platform speakers as Dr Gethin Davies, Revs R. H. Roberts, London, and Charles Davies, Cardiff, and at the conclu- sion of his remarks there was a consensus of opinion that we do not lack laymen that have plenty of religious" backbone" in them. His treble-shafted thrust at Mr W. S. Caine, M.P., was keenly relished by the audience, his words being that we are not followers of Cain(e) in this as well as in some other matters. A NEW DEPARTURE OF THE WELSH BAPTIST UNION. THE rnport of the proceedings of the Welsh Baptist Union meetings, held this week at Llan- dudno, reveals a new departure in the history of the denomination. I refer to their Insurance Trust Fund, which was recently established, and now promises to become a powerful factor in the financial prosperity of the denomination. By insuring their colleges, chapels, and other proper- ties in this society of their own, a good sum of money, which has hitherto gone annually into the coffers ct ether societies, will be saved, and a considerable revenue may be used for denominational purposes. Tbe Welsh Baptists are wise in their generation. For this they should be commended, and not blamed, for, according to their adopted creed, it is their duty to be wise all serpents and innocent as doves. While fervent in spirit they are not slothful in business. PRACTICAL SYMPATHY WITH GLANARAETH. ANOTHER commendable step taken by the Welsh Baptist Union is to be seen in the resolution they adopted in favour ofj befriending and encouraging one of their most promising young ministers, who, in consequence of having broken down in health, is prevented from performing his pastoral duties. The Rav H. Richards, late of Merthyr, who received a cordial invitation to succeed the Rev J. Jones, of Velinvoel, the late editor of the Seren Cymru, was a genius who, bad good health permitted it, would have made bis mark in the principality. Lest these lines may come under his observation at the Mumbles, where, I believe, he is now in calm retreat hoping for recovery, and cause his modesty to blush, I sbaH abstain from saying half of what might be eulogistically predicted of him. Possessed of considerable poetical merits, young though he was, he very worthily edited the poetry columns of the Bcdyddiwr, a Welsh Baptist weekly which for some time was published in the Rliondda Valley. Since his resignation of his pastorate at Mertbyr he has visited Egypt and other regions in quest, 9f,- restoration of health. There is reason to hope that be will yet arise and ehine, and the pioject of a testimonial to him for his past services may materially assist to reattune his harp, which is now silent on the weeping willows.
