BARRY DEBATING SOCIETY "FREE EDUCATION." The weekly meeting was held en Monday evening at the Barry Cafe. Councillor Paterson presided. There was a good attendance of members. Mr J. A. Lovatt Frazer read a paper on "Free Education," in which he stated objections to that principle—objections stated more as a stimulus to debate than personal convictions on the question. The first objec- tion dwelt upon was the injustice of compelling one man who has no children to pay for the education of those who have. Mr Frazer's definition of the State was ingenious, it merely meaning majority." Logically, be claimed that there was no distinction between educat- ing, feeding, and clothing the children, and this should be followed by free gymnasia. He passed on to notice that adopting such a programme would weaken soeial life by weak- ening parental responsibility; it encouraged early marriages, and produced a re-action on the parent himeelf, which was bad. In the past technical and commercial education had been neglected. This closed his condemnation of our great system. Having another engagement that evening Mr Frazer could not sit out the debate which followed, and a very hearty vote of thanks was accorded him, after which the following gentlemen took part in a very in- teresting disoussion :-Dr Lloyd Edwards, Dr Percy Smith, Messrs Peter Wright, F. Biss, J. E. Wensley, T. Davies, Aaron Williams, A. Sawyer, J. Jenkins, T. Taylor, and A. S. Williams.—The next meeting will be held on January 6, 1900, when the debate will be upon the question: "Were the Commons justified in beheading Charles 1. ?"
