WHEN the Chairman of the Swansea Harbour Trust goes so far as to seriously declare that with judicious and economical management the Harbour Trust has sufficient income without demanding from the ratepayers the £3,750 which they have in the past had to pay as the price of the abolition of the bridge tolls, one might naturally conclude that there is a reasonable chance of the impost being soon withdrawn. Sir JOHN JENKINS' reason for this state- ment is the increasing revenue of the port, which he hopes and sees reason to believe will, with careful management, so continue to increase as to place the Trust beyond the necessity for making this call on the ratepayers. But judicious man«ffe- ment has of late resulted in the finances of the Trust getting into an improved and an improving state is a fact which everybody is glad to observe. Bnt Sir JOHN, when he made this statement, must surely have lost sight of a very important obligation on the part of the Trust. Alderman TUTTON pointed out at the council meeting that there are to be heavyjexpenditures made on a new bridge, extending the Prince of Wales Dock, and improving the North and South Docks. These expenditures may, of course, come out of capital account, and then the only charge on the revenue will be the necessary interest payable on the borrowed money. But there is another charge which will have to be met directly the revenue'of the port begins to show a surplus, and that is the provision of a sinking fund. We believe the Harbour Trust has for several years been under an obligation to create this sinking fund, and that this is an obligation which will have to be met in the near future. In the face of this it is difficult to see, how- ever satisfactorily the revenue of the port may increase, that the Trust can reasonably be expected to dispense with the assistance of the £3,750 a year for some time to come. Indeed, the late chairman, as well as Lord SWANSEA, never hesitated to say that the contribution would always be required.

Already there are over 60 acceptances, and the invitations have been con- fined to working journalists and a few personal friends of the chairman. Roberts's full string band has been engaged to play during the banquet, and a capital programme of light operatic and classical music lias been arranged. Mr Lewellen Wood will give the toast of the evening, "The Institute of Journalists," to which Mr David.Davies. of Swansea, will respond. The only other toast (with the exception uf the Royal Family) will be that of The Chairman of the District, Mr David Duncan," which will be pro- posed by Mr Lasoelles Carr. Dr. Joseph Parry, who has the musical arrangements in hand, has engaged a quartette party consisting of Mrs E. Ellis, soprano, Cardiff; Miss Llewelyn, con- tralto, Bridgend Mr A. E. Turner, tnQr, Penarth and Mr Lewis Morgan, bass, Penarth. The manager of the Royal Hotel is to do bis best in tho art of catering, a novel arrangement of the tables has been designed, and there is every promise of a successful and very pleasant reunion of the journalists of South Wales.
CARDIFF EXHIBITION OF 1870 SURPLUS OF £1,017. Recently the museum and art gallery committee have taken active steps to secure the application of this surplus to its original intended purposes. To this end the committee invited the co-opera- tion of the committees of the free libraries, infirmary, and technical instruction college, as representing the only bodies presumably inter. ested in the fund. This was heartily reciprocated, each committee appointing three representatives. The first conference of these representatives took plac9 at the Town-hall on Friday afternoon, the mayor being chairman, and Mr J. Ward, curator of the museum, acting as secretary. The follow- ing gentlemen, representing the above institutions, were present—Councillors Trounce (the mayor), F. J. Beavan, White, Crosaman, and W. Lewis; Rev. Canon Thompson, D.D., Drs. C. T. Vachell and Edwards, and Messrs T. N. Stephens and J. L. Wheatley (town clerk).—After a brief address by Mr Councillor F. J. Beavan, as chairman of the museum and art gallery committee, in which he expressed the reasons why his committee had taken the present steps, and expressed his own hopes of an early settle- ment of the matter, Mr Councillor White was called upon to give a history of the surplus. This he did, tracing the history from the early steps which led up to the exhibition to the present position of affairs.—A resolution was passed thanking him for the very lucid and complete way in which he had put the whole matter.— Dr. Vachell next gave a resuind of several personal interviews he had bad with Mr Waller Mr Whiffen, Dr. Taylor, and others closely interested in the exhibition and its surplus fund. —The matter was considered from various points of view, and satisfactory progress was made towards a settlement.
THE "WELSH PULPIT." ACTION FOR LIBEL. It appears that an action for libel is being taken against certain Welsh journals by Mr D. Edwards, of Nottingham, for associating his name with the authorship of the Welsh Pulpit," which they described as an atheistical work. The offending paragraph first appeared in the Dryck, an American paper, from which it was copied into some of our Welsh contemporaries. Mr Edwards, before he went to Nottingham to manage the Daily Express, oocupied a similar post iu the Genedl office, Carnarvon. Though an mtimate personal friend of the authors ot the "Welsh Pulpit," he is understood not to be responsible for the book or any portion thereof.
CYMRU FYDD LEAGUE. ADDRESS BY PRINCIPAL EDWARDS, D.D. If the majority of the people of Wales were members of the Church of Enatfand to-morrow, we should still plead for Disestablishment, because it is not a question of noses but of principle." Thus Principal Edwards, in an address to the Cardiff branch of the Cytnru Fydd League, in the Caxton-hall, Working-street, last night. It was a singularly able address on Disestablishment, every aspect of which question the earnest and practical doctor effectively dealt with before a crowded audience. Turning to the politieal aspect of i., he said the next two or three years would be fraught with great results, and he asked all Welsh Nonconformists to cherish brotherly love to their brethren of the Church of England, because the fight was not with persons but with a system which had oppressed the country and divided the people. Referring to the Cymru Fydd League, Principal Edwards said the aim of the league was to bring to a focus the views and sentiments of Welsh people all over Wales, and to give effective expression to them. Branches were being organised all over the country and, if he was not mistaken, the Cymru Fydd League in a short time would be a large and an influential and effective body, which would make its voice beard not only in the Principality but throughovt the empire (AppluuaeJ
WELSH GOSSIP. Sir Marfceine and Lady Lloyd, Bronwydd, are on a visit to Inverness, the capital of the High. lands. The Bishop of Sfc. David's and Mrs Jones have returned from the Continent, and are now residing at Abergwili. Mr E. R. Moxey, J.P., who has been absent from business at Cardiff for two or three weeks, returns to-day. Sir John Llewelyn is one of the besb entomolo- gists in Wales, and he has a fine collection of butterflies at Penllergare. r Mr T. Morel is at Llandrindod Wells; and there are not a few other representatives of Cardiff still in those higher regions. Nearly 50 branches of the Women's Liberal Union have been formed in Wales during the last two years with a membership of 10,000. Mr H. Radcliffe, Cardiff, for two or three months has been unable to devote himself fully to business. His health is now, however, said to be improving. The first Lord Overstone was the grandson of a tenant farmer near Llandovery, and many of his relations, who are small farmers in the district, benefited by his will. Rev. E. Rowland, of the Glamorgan misston to the deaf and dumb, who met with an accident last month, is getting on favourably, and is at present in the Rest at Porthcawl. "Gwyneth Vaughan has returned to Cardiff to attempt invigoration of the British Women's Temperance Association branches. Grangetown is the first field of action. Councillor Brain will duly note the fact. It is hoped that Mr Herbert Cory will have so far recovered from his sad accident to-day as to permit Mr Clifford Cory presiding at the smoking concert in tho Principality Club this evening. The programme arranged is an excellent one. The Bishop of St. Asaph was the last to submit to the Metropolitan authority of Canterbury in 1172. One of his successors a century later I refused to excommunicate Prince Llewelyn. Bishop Morgan, the translator of the Bible into Welsh, was also bishop of tins see. The Lienor, Mr Owen M. Edwards's new quarterly, is announced to appear in the first week in January. The new venture will be all the more interesting as it will be the first time that Mr Edwards will have to compete against another periodical of the same class. Cardiff's new public library has so far advanced that already there have been intruding visitors to the unfinished building; and great admiration of the new reference-room. The present reading- room, where visitors sit packed like herrings in a barrel, looks very dark and dingy beside the fine new edifice. The Peninsular and Oriental Company are not plaoing their contract at lis 3d. They have not closed upon an offer of 10a 91, or another of 11s per ton. This does not offer bright prospect for next year's prices; and as lower prices entail lowered wages, and lower wages occasion discon- tent with the slidmg-scale system, the outlook for industrial peace is clouded. Sir James Clarke Lawrence, Bart., formerly Lord Mayor of London and M.P. for Lambeth, has just presented a life-sized portrait; of himself to the Presbyterian College, Carmarthen. Ho has been a member of the governing body of the college for nearly forty years, and. has always taken great interest in the institution. The oriel window on the east side of the building is an earlier gift of his. When the history of Nonconformity in Wales in the 19th century comes to be written." says the Gwyliedydd, the Welsh Wesleyan organ, "the first half will be described as the period of the enthusiastic 'cymanfas,' the full grey chapels, and the powerful preaching; while the second half will b- described as being marked by orderly 'cymanfas,' large and handsome chapels, and pastoral visitings." Mr Brynmor Jones, Q.C., M.P., is the eldest son of the poet-preacher, the Into Rev. Thomas Jouea, of Walter-road, Congregational, Church, Swansea. Mr Jones was born at Morriston when his father was pastor of Tabernacle Independent Church, and he has, therefore, an intimate connection with the Parliamentary district in connection with the vacancy in whose representa- tion his name is mentioned. Mr J. Pugli Davies, editor of the Journal, Carmarthen, has sailed from London in the Hawarden Castle for South Africa, where he intends to winter. Last winter, it will be remembered, another JWelshman, Mr Lleufer Thomas, went to South Africa for the sake of his health, and has returned completely restored. Mr T. E. Ellis, M.P., spent some time in the same salubrious climate some years ago. Liberal Welshwomen do not do things by half. At Llandrindod this week the members of the Executive of the Welsh Union of Women's Liberal Associations, not only delivered eloquent spetjehes, but on discovering that there was no branch association at Llandrindod, formed them- selves into parties of twos and threes, canvassed the town, and before the sun set a branch Associa- tion was formed, with Mrs Frank Edwards as president. It is extremely probable that Dr. J. Griffiths, Cambridge University, will be appointed assistant surgeon at Addenbrook's Hospital, in the place of Dr. Deighton, who will follow Sir George Humphrey, recently resigned through ill-health. In tho circular letter announcing his resignation to the governors ot the hospital. SIr George highly recommends Dr. Griffiths for the assistantship. Dr. Griffiths is a native of Pony. berem, near Llanelly. Mr Lewis Davies, Mountain Ash, late senior scholar, doubleexhibrtioner, and bachelor of arts of Lampeter College, has just won the Demansel open exhibition, of the yearly value of £40, at St. John's College, Oxford. This exhibition is sup. plemented by another of the value of £40 a year from the Lampeter Affiliation Fund. Mr Davies provides another insfcanoe of the enthusiasm of the democracy in Wales for culture, for a few years ago he was a working man. Mr Tom Ellis would do well," says a corres- respondent, if he would try and restore not enly the old Welsh judicature, but also the old Administrative Council of Ludlow, which was done away with in 1688, at the beginning of the era which witnessed the most persistent attempts to Anglicise Wales. One of the provisions of the County Councils Act states that the county councils of any number of shires can elect a committee, to which can be delegated certain powers of the county councils. Would it not be possible to develop this idea ?" The group of 22 "Little Welsh BeautIes" in this week's Gentlewoman are all photographed by Mr H. H. Chapman, of Swansea. The portraits, which are beautifully reproduced, represent Miss Knox, Mis3 Morris (daughter of Sir Robert Morris), Master and Miss Yeo, Miss Gwynne- Vaughan, Miss Morris, Miss Beor, Miss Nora Richards, Miss V. E. Morris, Master Morris, Miss Hill, Miss M. L. Morris, Miss Knecht, Master MeClellon, Miss G. Hershaw, Miss George, Miss and Master Matthews, Miss Cavil, Miss and Master Kirby, and Miss Godwin. Is the irrepressible modern Brython trying to regain possession of the Clyde? Last July there were, on the same day, elections to two chairs in the Glasgow University. It is now ancient history that Pro- fessor Henry Jones captured one it is not so well known that another old Merioneth- shire boy was generally thought, even by the mem- bers of the council which elected, to be the best man for the chair of Modern History. Buc to elect two Welshmen was too much for Scottish equanimity. The historian of Modern Europe was taken, and the genial and versatile editor of Cymru left. Now Glasgow is looking for a logician to succeed the late Professor Veitch, and rumour has it that he will be found in Wales. An excellent specimen of Young Wales, not nearly so well known as he deserves to be, is Dr. Evan Evans, one of the medical inspectors employed for the last two years by the Local Government Board for peripatetic work. Dr. Evans, who is about 32 years of age, is a son of Mr Thomas Evans, Tynant, Aberayron, and is a member of an old Cardiganshire Unitarian family, being related on his mother's side to the well-known Daniel Ddu o Geredigion. Educated at Llandovery, Aberystwyth College, and St. Bartholomew's Hospital, Dr. Evans was for a time in practice at Brighton, and was afterwards engaged in sanitation work at Bethnal-green. Ho took his D.P.H. diploma with almost unprece- dented distinction, and is very high in the estima- tion of Dr. Thorne Thornp. the chief medical faspector of the Local Government Board. I

A DANGER TO BRITISH FREEDOM- ONE of the most important educational deliverances which have appeared in recent years is the notable Manifesto of the minority section of the London School Board, which was published yesterday morning. It is a noble and dignified and most telling appeal to the London electorate against the rampant and insolent intolerance of the sectarian majority on the School Board, who, intoxicated by the un- wonted and unexpected possession of power at the Board, are unscrupu- lously using that power to teach their own ereeds and dogmas to the nation's children at the expense of the national ratepayer. To teach the religion of some with money forcibly taken out of the pockets of all is a crying sin against righteousness, and the flimsy plea offered in arrest of judgment by some of the subtler apologists, for teaching sectarian creeds at the cost of the public, that similar anomaliaa are to be found in other departments of our national life, are pre- sented in the very worst style of the ecclesi- astical polemic. We are told that thousands of people in Great Britain object, on religious grounds, to have their children vaccinated, nevertheless in numberless cases they are vaccinated contrary to the wish of the parents, and in other cases the parents are fined for disobedience to the law and that the Quakers object on the score of conscience to pay taxes for the support of an Army and a Navy, and yet they are com- pelled to pay these taxes. But the cases are not in the least analogous, in- deed they are utterly diverse and we should be paying a very poor compli- ment to the intelligence of the sectarian advocates who cite these cases as pleas of justification for the aggressive intolerance of a rampant sectarian majority, if we could believe that they them- selves had the slightest faith in the validity of their own plea. Surely the end for which a thing is done determines the principle involved in the doing. Children are not vaccinated, and an Army and a Navy are not maintained for a religious end, but for a purely secular end. The State is the ultimate guardian of the health and lives of the citizens of the State and the ultimate defender of the nation's safety. To preserve the health and lives of the subjects of the State children are vaccinated; and to protect the nation against outside foes an Army and a Navy are kept in being. Neither of these acts is for the religious advantage of the people, but for their secular well-being. The end for which the State exacts duty and taxes is purely and solely a secular end. Is that the end for which the masterful sectarian majority upon the London School Board peremptorily insists that dogmatic sectarian teaching shall be given to the children ? Is it for a secular end that they demand this teaching 1 Or is it not for some religious, or rather some ecclesiastical end—for religion turns Away in sorrow and reproof from the temper and spirit exhibited by the majority—that the teaching is to be given 1 To benefit the children religiously it is said to be given, but really and practically it is to teach them the ecclesiastical creeds and dogmas of the majority of members of the Board. At all events, it is not for a secular end that this teaching is given, and therefore there ia not the shadow of an analogy between this case and the insistance upon vaccination or the maintenance of an Army and a Navy. The sophistical apologists for the sectarian intolerance of the London School Board majority must endeavour to discover some other plea. Should the policy of the sectarian majority on the Board unhappily prevail, and sectarianism become a dominant factor in Board School teaching generally, the last end of public elementary education in England and Wales will be deplorable, and a deadly blow will be struck at the very foundation principle of civil and religious freedom. The Manifesto of the unsectarian minority mem- bers recognises this danger—and it is a perilous danger—to social freedom and religious liberty. They say, We are satis- fied that should the theological policy of the present Board be maintained it will be a danger to religious liberty and fatal to religious sincerity. But we also condemn the theological activity of the present Board because it has hindered the due discharge of our work in developing and improving education. The majority are the partisans and champions of the Denominational system. They seek election in the interest of the Denominational schools, and they vote against necessary school provision, or necessary school improvement, in the interest of the rival system which they support." It has always been a matter of profound surprise and astonishment to us that at School Board contests any consider- able number of electors can be found to vote for sectarian candidates. These electors, at least, those of them who are parents, presumably desire a good, sound, healthy, and national education for their children, and yet they can vote for candidates who, putting the most charitable construction upon their intentions, cannot be possessed by any very consuming desire to see that good, sound, healthy, national education given in the Board School. They have a rival system of Elementary Education of their own to maintain in being and to make flourishing and prosperous and there is a good deal of human nature in men, even in the best of men. It is but natural, therefore, that they should desire to witness thei own National Schools take precedence in success and earnings of the Board Schools. This is to state the case in the very mildest form. But their own National Schools ought surely to be important enough to' occupy all the spare time that can they give to the furtherance of Elementary Education. Why, then, do these gentlemen seek to become members of a School Board ? Surely not for the purpose of so improving Board School teaching as to make it superior to the teaching in their own National Schools. And why do the electors—at least those of them who are parents —vote for putting these sectarian candidates on the School Board ? It seems an act of crass stupidity to those who endeavour to view the question of national Elementary Education from the standpoint of methods and results. If these voters had a pecuniary interest in the success of a large Co-operative Stores, would they be so benighted as to appoint as Managers and Directors persons who had a private business of the same kind on the other side of the street ? They have more than a pecuniary interest in their children's educational welfare, never- theless they will elect as the managers of the Board Schools in which their children are taught, gentlemen who have a rival school on the opposite side of the way. The sectarian majority on the London School Board hay. during their three years of office absolutely paralysed education in its Board Schools, and have so culpably neglected making adequate provision for a rapidly increasing child population that it will take years under an efficient School Board to overtake the pressing requirements of the now neglected children. It is not the Unsectarian mem- bers of the Board, whose dignified and judicial remonstrance was published yesterday, who alone say this, but Her MAJESTY'S Inspectors of Elementary Schools. Several quotatioas from the reports of the Inspectors concerning the London Schools are published in the Manifesto of the Unsectarian minority, but the following condensed summary will give the gravamen of the charges against the intolerant sectarian I majority made by the Government In- spectors. There has been unnecessary delay in every stage in the process of building, delay in recognising the need for building, further delay in getting out plans for buildings, and yet more and more delay in completing the buildings themselves. In ] the infants' department there are over- crowded rooms, and classes of seventy, eighty, and a hundred little children between seven and nine years of age, or even between three and five, huddled together, with only a single teacher, and with neither space enough for comfort, nor air enough for health. In other departments three scholars are crowded at desks only fitted for two, or additional desks are crushed into a class- room too small to hold them with any degree of comfort or convenience. This is the result of giving the control of Board Schools to a sectarian majority. The London electors were warned three years ago that this would be the result if they entrusted the care of the children in the Board Schools to the supporters of sectarian schools, who would be oertain to handicap the Board Schools in the interest of their own schools. The electors have had a grievous awakening, and they are asked once more to place the London Board Schools in the hands of the friends and not of the enemies of Board School Education. The new London School Board will be elected next month, and the Mani- festo appeals to the electors to return supporters of the School Board system and not its enemies to manage the schools. On questions of detail," says the Manifesto, "it is easy to puzzle outsiders, but this broad principle must be evident—that those who are put forward by the Denominationalists in the interest of their own schools, and who proclaim everywhere their preference for denominational schools, are not the proper per80ns to have the preponderating voice in managing the Board Schools." Common sense and logical reasoning will endorse this dictum to the utmost. They are not the proper persons, any more than a Buddhist priest would bo the proper person to expound the verities of the Christian faith.
