END OF THE LLANELLY BORDER DISPUTE NEW SCHOOLS TO BE BUILT. COUNTY COUNCIL DECIDE TO PURCHASE SITES. A special meeting of the Carmarthenshire County Council was held at the County Offices, Carmarthen, on Saturday for the purpose of considering tho question of tho purchase ot sites for the building of new schools at Furnace and Dafen, near Llanelly, the Board of Education having intimated that after August next, when the revised regulation with re- gard -to accommodation will come into force, there will not be sufficient in the present county provided schools for the children residing in the county area, and who were some time ago turned out of the Llanelly Urban Schools because the County Educa- tion Authority would not agree to pay 17s. 6d. per head in respect of their education, in addition to the grants earned, and which, of course, were lost by the county. Mr. T. Jones, Llanelly (chairman), presided, and there were also present: Mr. John Johns, Parc- eithyn (vice-chairman); Mr. J. Lloyd, Penybank; Mr. T. E. Greville, Llannon; Mr. D. Evans, Manor- daf; Mr. Ben Evans, Gwastod Abbot; Rev. R. H. Jones, Llangendeirne; Mr. W. B. Jones .Llanelly; Mr. T. Barrett, Giynwalis; Mr. J. Lewis, Meiros Hall; Rev. A. Fuller Mills, Carmarthen; Mr. S. H. Anthony, Kidwelly; Mr. C. E. Morris, Penrhos, Carmarthen; Mr. Benj. John, Llandissilio; Mr. Jas. Phillips, St. Clears; Rev. T. Johns, Capel Als; Mr. J. Rees, Dolgwm; Mr. J. LI. Thomas, Pontar- dulais; Mr. W. Thomas, Trelech; Rev. J. H. Rees, Burry Port; Mr. H. E. Blagdon-Richards, Carmar<- then; Mr. W. David, Llanelly; Mr. W. H. Demp- ster, Cliff House, Laugharne; Mr. J. Harry, Bynea; Mr. H. Jones Thomas, Penrhos, Llanfynydd; Mr. T. Thomas, Llangennech; Mr. W. Griffiths, Llan- elly; Mr. T. Jones, Penronw; Mr. W. Mabon Davies, Glansawdde, and Mr. Jones, Pontardulais; together with the clerk (Mr. J. W. Nicholas). The Clerk stated that Mr. Ma.nsel Lewis would sell the Council a site on the Stradey Estate, situated near Penyfai, for £550. A sub-committee of the Education Committee had recommended tho site for furnace district. Mr. John Lloyd moved that the site be purchased. They were compelled by the Board of Education to build, and it was the best site obtainable. It waa centrally situated, and would servo a large district. Mr. Mabon Davies seconded. Mr. W. B. Jones moved an amendment that the site be not purchased. The site was far too expen- sive, and they could make better terms with Llanelly Urban Education Committee, who would educate the children for about JB50. To build a new school would cost far more than that. The Rev. T. Johns, in seconding, appealed to the Council to show a Christian spirit. Let them bury the hatchet, and he hoped ho would not appeal to them in vain. Let the feeling between the East and West die out, and he was willing to do anything he could to bring about peace, instead of perpetuating that bad feeling. Let the County Council come in between the two Education Committees and make peace. Mr. David Evans, in supporting the motion, paid that the site was in the centre of Furnace. Mr. W. B. Jones complained of not being on the selec- tion committee, but how could they help it when he had done all he possibly could to bring the difficulty about. Mr. Jones denied this, and said he only acted as the representative of the district. Mr. Dd. Evans said that Mr. Jones stated before the commissioner that there was no accommodation For the children in the county schools in that dis- trict. That being so they were going to provide sufficient accommodation, but every possible ob- stacle had been put in the way of the Commttee to carry out its work (hear, hear). Yet complaint was made by persons, who, in their public capacity, thwarted the County Education Committee in every direction. As regards the distance the Furnace children had to walk, they had children in the county walking a far greater distance, and over very much worse roads. Llanelly had even asked for payment in respect of children attending non-pro- vuled schools, towards which they never paid. farthing in rates. Mr. W. David—I deny that at once. Wo never asked payment for thoso children. Mr. John Lloyd rose to a point or order. Me David, representing an autonomous area, could not speak or vote on the question. The Chairman upheld the point raised. Mr. David Evans said that the Llanelly Com- mittee asked 17s. 6d. per head for all children at- tending the town schools, and they included chiliL-en educated at no cost to tho Committee. Mr. David—They would not be charged for. Mr. Dd. Evana said that it was not a question of East, and West, but simply a question between a certain number of parents and tho County Educa- tion Committee. In reply to a qeustion, it was stated that in Car- marthen schools the county children were educated for the grants earned. Mr. J. Phillips said there was an idea abroad that Llanelly children should be treated differently to other children in the county (laughter). Mr. WB. Jones stated that the position was different in Carmarthen, because tho county chil- dren attending thoso schools passed a county school on their way, Mr. H: E. B. Richards rose to speak, but the Chairman ruled him out of order, saying, amidst laughter, "You can't speak." Mr. Richards—I liave yet to learn that Carmar- then Borough members are gagged (laughter). Mr. David-I have been. The Chairman—Sit down. I can't hear you: Mr. C. E. Morria thought £550 an acre was a stiff price. Mr. John Johns said that the Committee had no other course, as they were hemmed in .on .every side. The law compelled them to provide education for the children, and they were doing it in tho best and cheapest way for tho district. The Christian appeal of Mr. Johns' ho greafiy admired, but the first condition of Christianity was that those who had sinned should repent (laughter). Had Llanelly people repented for driving those little children on to; the roadway and keeping them there. If they had repented there was a chance (laughter). There was no chance without repentance (laughter). How- ever, it was too late now. Why didn't they appeal in that manner at the start. They had every chance at first, but they wanted their own way. They had dropped from 17s. 6d. per head to JB50. It was good for them to admit that they were wrong in asking three times as much as they ought to in the first instance. That was a little repen- tance but not enough—(laughter)—from them to draw back. The parents of those children would be asked to join the urban area shortly, and then they will call on this Council to save them again from the, rates of the urban district (laughter). Ho would have been quite willing to hand over to Llanelly the rates those parents paid towards county education. That would have been quite fair. W. B. Jones—Llanelly will accept it. Mr. Johns—Then why didn't they ask for it at first. I am only speaking for myself Mr. John Lloyd said that as chairman of the much-maligned and misrepresented County Educa- tion Committee, he stated they had never been at loggerheads with Llanelly. They had no quarrel with Llanelly at all. Mr. W. B. Jones—Always. Mr. Lloyd said it wa nothing of the kind. They had never asked Llanelly to educate their children, and they did not want them to. They could edu- eato them in their own area as the law required. Llanelly had quite enough corners of her own to turn without coming to them (laughter). They did not interfere with Da nelly, and why should Llanelly molest them. All they asked Llanelly was to leave them and their children alone (hear, hear). Mr. W. B. Jones—You leaivo us and the rates alone. VINDICATION OF THE EDUCATION COMMITTEE. Mr. Lloyd—We don't touch you at all. We are called by all the bad names you can think of. Wo are told we are persecuting tho children, we are un- christian, inhuman, without any sense—(laughter)— that wo aro neglecting our schools, and starving our schools as regards the staffing. If we are neglecting our schools I may point out wo have, built eight new schools since the appointed day, whilst Pembroke- sliiro had only built one, and Cardiganshire none. As to tho staffing, when we revised our scale of salaries, with one stroke of the pen, we increased our exjjenditure by £5.000 a year. If wo are starving our schools by increasing our salaries, what must have happened before? (laughter). Dr. Johns spoke about showing a Christian spirit What did Llanelly do when they turned 250 children Ott on to the road in the rain, and let them march about. Was that, the kind of Christianity they had in Llan- elly and come here to preach to'us about (laughter). What have we done? Wo have 50 or 60 Llanelly children educated in our schools, but we never turned them out. Wo reward good for evil, and then for these people to preach Christianity to us. W c consider the grants sufficient to educate children when you have the accommodation. Llanellv has thrown away JB500 a year in grants, with the result that the Llanelly education rate went up bang six- pence in the £ (laughter). Have they reduced their staff at the schools. Xo. All this agitation has been got up not in the interest of the children, but of Llanelly. It has an ulterior motive to .get the money of tho county ratepayers to flow into tho exchequer of Llanelly, and extend their boundary area. Rev. 1. Johns—Here you are again knocking Llapelly people(low,n as much as you can. Mr. Llovd-^If they can't stand up they must be knocked down (laughter). Mr. John Johns—They have fallen down, there is no knocking needed (renewed laughter). lr: Lloyd said that they had a conscientious ob- jection to paying the money. They were not going to penalise the ratepayers of the county to save those in Mr. W. B. Jones's division. At Hendv the rate- payers had to bear their share of three-fourths the cost of a new school, and why should not Furnace. Were the.other people to be super-taxed to pay for the education of tho rural children near Llanelly. If Llanellv was paid for educating tho children the f cost would fail on the whole county, but when they built a new school threo-fourths fell on the parish. 1 The roads some of the county children had to travel to school would stagger humanity, and why could not Llanelly children walk a mile and a quarter over a beautiful road. The Rev. T. Johns—We spoke against the spirit you show now. You are going to perpetuate that evil spirit, and you ought not to speak like that against Llanelly. Llanelly ifi a Christian town (laugh- ter). Mr. John Lloyd—It is the spirit we don't like. The population there is increasing by leaps and bounds, and the school was required. The rate- payers at Parkyrhyn (Ammanford) did not shirk their responsibilities and why should Furnace. The Chairman—You must stick to your point. Mr. Lloyd—What else do you want me to tell you? (laughter). On a division five voted for the amendment, and 14 for the motion, which was declared carried. Mr. W. B. Jones—I give notice now we shall appeal against it. The Clerk stated that the Committee recommended a site for a new schol at Halfway, Dafen, and the price was £330 an acife. Mr. Lloyd moved the site be purchased. Dafen School was already overcrowded. Mr. D. Evans seconded. Mr. W. B. Jones supported. He thought a school large enought to accommodate 300 children of Dafen should be built, as the present school was situated behind some works, and the approach to it was very bad and wet. Mr. John Lewis—Does the land belong to a lord ? (laughter). The Chairman—Neither a lord nor a duke (re- newed laughter). The motion was carried unanimously, and the meeting terminated.
THE CHURCH AND THE ELECTION PRONOUNCEMENT BY BISHOP OF ST. DAVID'S. A meeting of the St. David's Diocesan Church Defence Board was held in the Assembly Rooms, Carmarthen, oil Friday afternoon last, at which the Bishop of St. David's presided. In the course of his address the Bishop said that in the case of the Irish Church tho question of its disestablishment was placed fairly and squarely be- fore the people of the United Kingdom at the general election of 1868. The only time when the issue of Welsh Disestablishment was ever placed before the country was in 1895, and then the country by a large majority declared against it. Four years ago the Liberal Government of the day deliberately decided not to placc this question a second time before the country, but nevertheless the Prime Minister did not scruple to ask the House of Com- mons this year to pass tho second reading of a Welsh Disestablishment Bill. It was true he put it now after a fashion before the country. But was it not absolutely impossible for the people to give a deliberate and just consideration to Welsh Dises- tablishment, and to declare their mind distinctly by their vote upon it, when they were also asked to declare at the same time by the same vote their minds upon the Budget, the House of Lords, fiscal policy, Home Rule, social reform, as well as a number of other large issues of grave consequence? What their vote would do, if the people returned the Government to power, after Mr. Asquith's speech at the Albert Hall, would be to give this Government during next Parliament a free hand to wreak generally "devastation and much damage, which will not be repaired"—to quote the charac- teristic menace uttered, in another connexion. fivo years ago by the present Chancellor of the Ex- chequer. Thoughful Nonconformists, including many among the younger ministers, were far more doubtful now, he believed, than they used to be 20 years ago, whether Churchmen were not right in thinking that the disendowment. of the Church would cripple most seriously its work in Wales for a geneiation. It was not at all clear to them now that disendowment would do any good at all to the cause of religion among Nonconformists. The bear- ing of the question of the legislative veto of the House of Lords upon Welsh disestablishment was this. The action of the Government in confusing the issues before the country at this general eJec- tion emphasized the necessity of some guarantee for the rights of the people to declare their mind as to the fate of the Church of England and of each of our other national institutions separately, by itself. on its own merits. It was one question whether a reformed House of Lords, or a Second Chamber constituted on a new basis, or the method of referendum or some other method would give the best guarantee for the right of the people to decide some other effective guarantee for national stability It was. however, an entirely different question, a broader and a deeper question bv far, whether be- fore the present guarantee for the rights of the people, afforded, however imperfectly, by the legis- lative veto of the House of Lords," was abolished, some other effective guarantee for national sia .ltitv should first be provided in its place. This was a. question which, on account of the Government's attitude towards the whole position of the Church of Kntrlurid. Churchmen could not but view with special concern, and in doing so they did not place as he understood the matter, the interests of the Church above national welfare. It was his own conYÎcTion that there was no other issue now before the country on account of which anv voter who be. heved that either Welsh disestablishment or disen- dowment would be a far-reaching wrong to the highest welfare of the nation would be" justified in voting for any candidate who was not denmtelv pledged to vote during the next Pariiamcnt against any Bill of Welsh disestablishment and Welsh dis- endowment. The consequences, therefore, of our action or inaction during the next few weeks could not. but be of very grave importance, but it was ot greater importance still whether we as Church- people were enabled to cultivate during this time ot trial a right spirit and a true tone. T)Resolutions were passed protesting against the Prime Minister's action in bringing before The country simultaneously three such great and wholly independent constitutional questions as the position of the Lords. Home Rule. dismemberment of the V-hurch, jn addition to other issues of great national importance, inasmuch as his action made it im- possible in such circumstances to ascertain with anv degree of clearness the minds of the people upon Welsh disestablihment and disondowment. It was further decided to appeal to all electors not to sup- port any candidate who declined to give a satisfac- tory pledge against Welsh disendowment and in support of children receiving religious instruction within school hours by properly qualified teachers in accordance with the wishes of their parents.
