TITHE AGITATION.

TITHE AGITATION. The following letter from Mr W. Pioton Evans solicitor, to the Clergy Defence Association, Cardigan, has appeared in a contemporary. SIR, My attention has just been drawn to the report of the Nonconformist Farmers' Defence Association submitted by Dr. Enoch Davies to the meeting of the South Wales Liberal Federa. tion held at Cardiff on Wednesday, the 16th inst. In this report it is alleged that the passing by the Tory Government of the Tithe-collecting Coercion Act had not the least discouraged the farmers, but, on the contrary, had made them still more determined to resist the unjust tax." For the purpose of dispelling any wrong ideas on this head, I send you the results in tithe- collecting under the new Act in the parishes of Troedyraur and Penbryn, two parishes in Car- diganshire which obtained such a notoriety for lawlessness during the tithe agitation. In the Newcastle Emlyn County-court since the new Act came into operation the number of plaints ei^-etif *rom parish of Penbryn has been 51, which have been disposed of as under.—Paid into court on service of notice of application. 8 Paid Bailiff without distraining. 27 Receiver appointed g Still pending 8 Total 51 From the pariah of Troedyraur the number of plaints entered were 20, which have been disposed of as under .— Paid into court on service of notice of application 6 Paid Bailiff without distraining 11 Receiver appointed 3 Total 20 ml- r* x nese ngures spaak for themselves, and will put the public in a position to judge how far the other allegations set forth in the report can be relied on for accuracy. In further contradiction of the allegation that the farmers "are still more determined to resist the unjust tax," I may say that the farmers who made themselves most conspicuous in resisting the payment of tithes prior to the new Act in these two parishes have since the new Act been the first to recognise its power by paying their tithes immediately upon receipt of the notice of applica- tion through the court. I am, &c.
