NOTES AND COMMENTS. IN THE last of the series of letters contri- buted by Dr Clifford to the Daily News on the subject of the Education Bill, he brought a serious charge against Lord Halifax and the English Church Union. Practically it amounted to this-that he and those mem- bers of the Church of England who worked with him had made deliberate attempts to subject their Church to the domination of the Pope and the Church of Rome. Lord Halifax and Mr Hill, the lay secretary of the English Church Union, repudiated the charge as absolutely untrue," and chal- lenged Dr Clifford to produce proofs of the accuracy of his statement. This the Doctor found r.9 "'ifficulty in doing, for he was able t o A." .from speeches delivered by Wich, if interpreted in the plain ,a.z:- neir words, could mean that and nothilig else. They were passages in which Lord Halifax expressed his earnest desire for the union of Christendom and the restoration of unity with the members of the Church abroad, East and West alike, but above all with the great Apostolic See of the West and asked whether there is a single instructed Christian who would not prefer Leo XIII. to the Privy Council," and welcome with his whole heart any advance on the part of Leo XIII. which might facili- tate the renewal of those relations between England and Rome which bound St Augus- tine, the first Archbishop of Canterbury, to St Gregory the Great and the venerable traditions of the Roman Church." Lord Halifax may give what explanation he likes to these words of his, but plain Englishmen will interpret tham to mean that he would like to subject the English Church to the Papacy, and that is a thing they will not submit to. If a large section, as is alleged, of the Church of England agree with Lord Halifax, then Englishmen who value their freedom and prize their liberty are bound to resist a measure like the Education Bill, which will give opportunity and power to those clergymen to train the minds of the children of the country in these pernicious doctrines, IN THE absence of a reply from Lord Hali- fax to Dr Clifford s vindication, Mr Hill wrote a icLcr in which, finding himself unable to contradict or disprove the specific charges made against his patron, he sought to minimise their effect by abusing Dr Clifford and praising Lord Halifax. In this letter he spoke of the large-hearted tolerance" of Lord Halifax for such men as Dr Clifford." What impertinence Who is Lcrd Halifax that he should exercise tolerance towards Dr Clifford ? If Great Britain were polled it would be found that for one man or woman who knows and respects the former there are a thousand by whom the latter is loved and revered. Within the narrow bounds of the English Church Union Lord Halifax may be wor- shipped as a little Pope. But Dr Clifford's name and reputation as an eloquent advo- cate of political and religious liberty and justice, as a champion of the weak and op- pressed, as a fearless foe to tyranny and wrong, are known all over the Empire. BUT even if it were not so-if Lord Halifax were famous and Dr Clifford obscure-where is the ground for tolerance on the part of the one towards the other ? Dr Clifford is checked by no bonds such as the Establish- ment enables the State to impose on the Church of which Lord Halifax is a member. In his large freedom he can pity the President of the English Church Union' whose aspirations for union with Rome are baulked by the decrees of Parliament. From Lord Halifax and his followers he has nothing to ask andnothing to gain. His rights and his liberties were won for him more than a century ago by men who repudiated the tenets and resisted the pretensions of the Lord Halifaxes of their day. It is not, there- fore, tolerance or toleration that he asks that is already his legal and unchallengeable right. It is justice, or, rather, the preven- tion of flagrant Injustice, such as the passing of the Education Bill would inflict on him and c J ?r TsoncoiVormists. It is for thefull freedom, tlf-- "Smplete equality, which the bigotry and selfishness of the Church have checked and mutilated, that he is fighting so bravely and he claims and demands them, not "with bated breath and whispered humbleness as a concession or a boon, but as a right. Let all true Britons, all God's Englishmen," as Milton called the stalwarts of his day, rally to his side! We are a rich nation, a very rich nation, but it would be well if we paid some atten- tion to our present financial position as exhibited in the Parliamentary Return just published. From that we learn that our expenditure in the year 1901-2 was £ 179,675,830, our revenue Y,127,152,614 which shews that we spent X52,524,216 more than we raised by taxation. Again, the National Debt on March 31st, 1901, stood at Y,705,723,878, while on March 31st, 1902, it was Y,768,443,386 so our national in- debtedness has increased in the past year by £ 6,719,508. Of course, the South African war is responsible for the larger part of these increases, but not for the whole of them. There has been general extravagance during recent years, and whereas in Mr Gladstone's golden days it was the revenue, nowadays it is the expenditure that increases by leaps and bounds." Fortunately, the nation has been very prosperous, and has been able to bear the vastly-increased burdens imposed upon it with comparative ease. But lean years may follow the fat years, and it is a much more difficult task to retrench than to increase expenditure. With a falling trade and a shrinking yield from Customs and Excise, the credit of the nation will also diminish; but the debt will not grow smaller, and we shall have to raise more money by taxes and pay off less of the debt, or we shall have to borrow more to meet current expenses, and so increase the debt and the interest to be paid on it. It is a gloomy outlook, and it is not easy to see a way of escape. Certainly, there will be no improvement under Tory Governments, to whom extravagance is as natural as it is to the members of that aristocratic class from which those Governments are usually formed.
SNAP SHOTS. The building of the new church by the Windsor- road Congregationalists is on the tapis. Barry United have been drawn to play Caerphilly in the third round of the Welsh Cup. The dissolution of Parliament is in the air. It was stated by a Manchester evening paper. A Barry passenger train knocked down a T.V.R. guard near Penarth Dock on Wednesday morning. It will be welcome news to all lovers of animals that the muzzling order has been revoked in South Wales The Lord Bishop of Llandaff has licensed the Rev Cyril Moffatt Barker as curate of Llandough with Leek with and C)gan. A daily paper states that one of the ruuuers at the spurts last Saturday won by a head." What a head! On Saturday next there will be a shooting match on the Waycock iidnge between Barry and New- port. About E25 will, it is stated, be handed over to the Nursing Association fund as a result of last Saturday's reports. Mr Will Thorne (London), of the Gasworkers' Union, will address at meeting at Barry next week tinder the auspices of the newly-formed branch of the Gas worker's Union. During the year 1901 Barry was the only town under the jurisdiction of the Glamorgan County Council where there was small-pox. It was intro- duced here by seamen, and was effectually stamped out. It is a glowing tribute to the voluntary principle in Nonconformity that Barry Wesleyans have paid £ 5,000 in buildings alone during the comparatively few years the cause has been established at that end of the town. Barry Wednesday A.F.C. opened the season with a match against Bridgend on Wednesday, and suffered defeat to the tune of 7 goals to 1. Smith scored Barry's only goal. By-the-way, Barry Wednesday Rugby team has not yet been re-started We are authoritatively informed that there is no foundation for the report that Messrs Bolckow, Vaughau & Co. intend establishing works in South Wales. A few years ago there were persistent rumours that the firm had taken land for that purpose near Barry, and at that time we were enabled to give definite and authentic information on the subject. Our many readers will be sorry to hear of the illness of the Rev D. H. Rees, M.A., formerly of Windsor-road Congregational Church, Barry, and now of Fareham. The rev gentleman has been at Broadstairs recuperating, and after returning to his work suffered another breakdown, his medical advisers having ordered complete rest for three months. The late Mr Thomas Morris, C.C., the Breoon- shira councillor who died under distressing circum- stances near Merthyr last week, was a relative through marriage of Mr J. A. Hughes, chairman of the Barry District Council, and the latter repre- sented the family at the inquest. The Merthyr guardians on Saturday passed a vote of condolence with the family, who are held in high regard. Our readers will be pleased to hear that Mr T. Vivian Rees, of Dinas Powis, who is perhaps better known as the son of the late Alderman Thomas Rees, of Cardiff, is making satisfactory progress towards recovery from the severe illness which has caused him to be laid up for some time. Mr Rees is well-known at Barry, and has figured prominently in Protestant meetings in the town. The Glamorgan County Council at its mee ing oh Thursday in last week at Pontypridd decided to urge upon the Barry Railway Company to carry out their obligations to run passenger trains between Caerphilly and Barry over the new Rhymney branch. It now appears, however, that there are only conditional statutory obligations existing, and the question of "necessity" will be a big obstacle which the Council cinnot overcome. Mr E. E. Fournier, the Irish hon. secretary of the Pan-Celtic Association, has written to the Press on a matter previously referred to in these columns of Anglicising the Eisteddfod, and declares that the requirement of Welsh singers using English wcrds is a decided disadvantage to the choristers, and means the surreptitious fostering of a lower- grade language." That is decidedly hard oil English, but of the Gorsedd he says Here we may listen to the melodious Welsh tongue as it rolls from th% lips of its ablest orators. Occa- sionally, it is true, we are rudely awakened by the harsh and drab-coloured English of some ignorant lord ling who is too grand to speak the language of the people."
HAS BARRY BENEFITTED CARDIFF? VIEWS OF THE MAYOR OF CARDIFF. Desire to Embrace Barry. In connection with the visit of the Grimsby Town Council deputation to Barry, reported elsewhere, an interesting discussion took place at Cardiff on Tuesday after the luncheon to which the members of the deputation were entertained by the Mayor (Alderman F. J. Beavan). Alderman Doughty, M.P., explained that the desire of the deputation was to ascertain what, in the judgment of the Cardiff authori- ties, was the effect upon Cardiff in respect of trade and in other material respects of the construction of the Barry docks at so short a distance from Cardiff. They inquired whether the Mayor and his colleagues were prepared to expres; an opinion (based upon their experience with regard to Barry) as to whether docks constructed at a distance of six miles from a town would create a rivalry in trade detrimental to that town. The Mayor of Cardiff expressed the opinion that docks constructed even at a distance of only six miles from the town, the inevitable effect would in his judgment be that a new township would arise around the docks, and although the great bulk of trade might remain to the larger town, considerable trade would necessarily be diverted. Of course, it might be different if the new township became part and parcel of the old municipality. In the latter case it would not prejudice their rights so much, but it was inevitable otherwise, as he had already said that certain trade would be diverted. In the case of Barry it was not part and parcel of Cardiff municipality, and therefore the rivalry between the two places became all the keener, and in proportion as Barry suc- ceeded from one aspect of the question Cardiff suffered. The Mayor was careful to point out that, notwithstanding the enter- prise at Barry, Cardiff had progressed, but he and his colleagues were of opinion that Cardiff would have progressed vastly more if the interests now at Barry had been set down within their municipality. Members of the deputation asked a num- ber of questions with regard to matters of detail, as, for exampte, whether there were any ship-repairing establishments at Barry, and whether, if there were, they detracted from that description of trade at Cardiff. The Mayor replied that there were such establishments at Barry, and although some ships came from Barry to Cardiff to be re- paired, no doubt trade of this description had been diverted from Cardiff. DISCUSSION AT THE BARRY LUNCHEON. 1, After luncheon at the Barry Railway Offices Mr Rees Jones, who presided, pro- duced irrefutable proof in support of his contention that the existence of Barry had benefitted Cardiff very considerably. Were it not for the enterprise shown by the Barry Company trade would have been diverted to a greater distance from Cardiff, and the latter town would thus have lost much of the support it gained. Shipbrokers and agents, all had their offices at Cardiff, and in all respects the ports were as united as they were in name. It was evident," said Alderman Doughty to one of our reporters after the return of the party to town, that eminent engi- neers had been employed to design the docks, and that there were thoroughly practical men on the board of directors Some members of the deputation, who have a knowledge of what has been done in America in the way of dock works, expressed the opinion that nothing so substantial as the Barry Dock had been brought into existence on the other side of the Atlantic in so short a period. We all come to the conclusion that Barry must have a very great future, but, at the same time, we could not help being impressed with the wonderful development of Cardiff, and there cannot be the slightest doubt that whatever Barry may take from it, Cardiff will become one of the most important towns in the country. In addition to a great export, it has a consider- able import trade."

PRESENTATION AT CADOXTON. DEPARTURE OF THE MISSES MORRIS. AN INTERESTING GATHERING. On Tuesday evening there was a numerous attendance of Church-people at the Missi it Room, I dde sleigh-street, Cadoxton, on tL; occasion of presentations io the Misses Morris, of The Rectory, who are about to depart from the district in consequence of the death of their father, the late revere i rector (Rev Ebenezer Morris, B.A.) Mr Evan Lloyd, a member of the Board of Guardians, presided in his usual genial and affable manner, and in opening the proceedings said the parishioners felt that the services of the Misses Morris at the Parish Church were so great that they must not re- main unappreciated any longer, hence the presentations. In departing from the parish, the remembrance of which must remain with them for many years to come, they carried with them the hearty good wishes of the people for their future happiness and prosperity. In all sincerity it could be said that they were sorry that the recipients of the presentations were abouf, to leave them. (Cheers.) Miss A. L. Jenkius then sang a solo, and was heartily cheered. Then Mr Martin (draper), one of the church- wardens, presented Miss Morris with a dressing case mounted in silver, and Mrs Evau Lloyd handed to Miss Molly Morris a writing case, Miss A. Jenkins likewise presenting Miss Peggie Morris with a purse, all briefly but appositely wishing them long life to cherish the gifts. The Rev I. Humphreys, curate of St. John's Welsh Church, who was called upon to speak, expressed his sense of appreciation at the tangible recongnition of the faithfulness and devoted service by the Misses Morris in the gifts just handed them. No one regretted their de- parture more than himself. It was the severance of a link which connected the family with the parish extending over a lengthy period in the history of the Church. In conclusion, he heartily wished them all happiness and success in the future. (Cheers.) Mr Bond, another parishioner, also spoke, and after referring to the splendid example afforded the Misses Morris by their late father, said he hoped they would follow that gentle- man's lofty example, and emulate his many Christian traits. Mr Martin (draper) also addressed the meet- ing, and expressed profound regret at the im- pending departure of the Misses Morris, who occupied useful spheres of work in the parish. Miss A. Mends, Miss Davies, Miss A. Jenkins, and others contributed to the entertainment of those present, the interesting and enjoyable meeting concluding with the singing of "Auld Lang Syne."
GRIMSBY DEPUTATION AT BARRY. A large deputation, representative of the dock and railway interests at Grimsby, are noW touring the chief ports of the United Kingdom with the object of gathering information to guide them in the construction of a projected new dock. The deputation arrived at Cardiff on Tuesday morning from Bristol and proceeded to the Town Hall, where the Mayor received them. Later the deputation proceeded to Barry. The deputation included the Mayor of Grimsby (Councillor Abrahams), Alderman Doughty, M.P., Alderman Madd, Alderman Smethurst, Alderman Wright, Councillor Alward, Councillor Bannister, Mr Wyatt (borough surveyor), Mr Gedge (deputy town clerk), Mr Samuel Fry (general manager G.C.R.), Mr Davies (solicitor G.C.R.), Captain Barwick (port master, Grimsby), and about a dozen others. At Barry the deputation were met by Mr Rees Jones (Cardiff) representing the directorate, Mr R. Evans (general manager), Captain R. Davies (dockmaster), Mr D. W. Roberts (shipping superintendent), Mr J. H. Hosgood (mechanical engineer), &c., &c. The party were first of all taken to Barry Island, but owing to the drenching downpour of rain they all repaired to the new offices, where lunch was served. Mr Rees Jones occupied the chair, and was supported by the Mayor and Alderman Doughty, M.P. The toasts of "The Barry Railway Company," "The Mayor and Corporation of Grimsby were drunk, and subsequently when the weather cleared the party were conveyed round the docks.

SEAWEED AS A TONIC. ITS MARVELLOUS EFFECT UPON THE STOMACH, LIVER, KIDNEYS & BOWELS. SEAWEED possesses a natural strengthening, healing ane purifying power, far greater than other known remedies. This is now conceded by im- portant authorities. It was first introduced by Mr Veno, and Veno's Seaweed Tonic is the only remedy in the world containing seaweed, for that reason Veno's Seaweed Tonic is used in hospitals and by doctors themselves because of its superior curative properties. Its most brilliant effect is produced in stomach, liver and kidney diseases, and the extraordinary cures it performs, even in the worse cases, is positive proof of its efficacy. It is a god-send to sufferers from indigestion, wind, headache, geueral weakness, kidney trouble, weak and painful back, torpid liver, femal" troubles, poorness of blood and HABITUAL CONSTIPATION.

The de- ceased lady, who had been ill for a long time, was only 36, and she leaves several young children to mourn her loss. The numerous friends who attended the funeral attested the esteem in which she had been held and the sympathy which was felt towards her husband and littie ones in their sore trial. Several wreaths covered the coffin, which was of polished elm with massive brass furniture, and at the cemetery the Rev W. Tibbott officiated. All the arrangements, which were entrusted to Messrs Jones and Son, 1, Charles-street, Cardiff, and 153, Holton-road, Barry Dock, were carried out with their usual completeness and efficiency. TROUBLE ON A BARRY-LADEN BOAT. At Belfast on Thursday in last week nine firemen belonging to the steamer Rathlin Head were charged with- wilful disobedience of the lawful command of their superior officer while on a voyage from Barry Dock to Montreal, and were sentenced each to seven days' imprison- ment. On reaching the Canadian port they were ordered by the second engineer to clean the engines, but positively declined to do so, con- tending that such a task formed no part of the work for which they were engaged.

——— BARRY RAILWAYMEN. COMPLAINTS TO THE BOARD OF TRADE. Sir Francis J. S. Hopwood, in a report to the Board of Trade of the proceedings which have t&keu place under representations made to the Department under the Railway Regulation Act, 1893, during the year ended 27th July, 1903, states a series of complaints from local railways. The paragraph in relation to the Barry Com- pany reads as follows:—"Complaints of long hours of locomotive men and goods guards at places between Barry Island and Porth had been inquired into, and were still under con- sideration." __dO.

WITHIN X300 OF THE MARK. SHALL THERE BE ANOTHER RUSH? WHO WILL GIVE A HAND? MANY SOURCES UNTAPPED. The fund is now within 6,000 shillings of the mark. Will Barry be beaten on the tape ? A very small effort will be sufficient to clear the debt, and it seems such a pity to give up when the goal is in sight. Let the watchward be Eureka." After a short spell townspeople who have not contributed must be reminded that the fund is still open, while others who feel that they have not given enough have yet a chance of showing the extent of their liberality. A whisper comes from the Temperance Societies that they are going to do some- thing licensed victuallers must help as well. Clubs can find the fund a worthy object for the disposal of a few pounds. Trades' Unions are earnestly desired to give the matter consideration, while the approach of winter suggests the necessity of entertainments in aid of the movement. Remember, another L300 and all will be cleared.

Barry Nursing Association. MEETING OF THE EXECUTIVE. A meeting of the Executive Committee of the Barry Nursing Association was held on Tuesday evening, under the presidency of Mr John Davies. the other members present being Mrs Alfred Jackson, Mr W. J. Blainey, Mr Evan Jones, Mr Tom Williams, Mr E. J. Llewellin, and Mr J. Arthur Hughes. The Finance Committee, which met prior to the meeting, reported that during the last month the average cost of living of the staff per week was 8s 3d, but the committee decided that the nurses should be restricted to 10s per head. It was also stated that S700 had been paid to the credit of the Association from the town fund, the overdraft remaining at present being JE386, which will be materially reduced. A discussion arose as to the advisability of organising a hospital Sunday, and the Rev C. J. Clarke intends bringing the matter forward at the next meeting.
LATE RECTOR OF CADOXTON. PROPOSED MEMORIAL TABLET. It has been suggested-and a meeting will shortly be held of the parishioners of Cadoxton to consider the matter—that a brass tablet to the memory of the late Rev E. Morris, B.A., who for many years was rector of Cadoxton, should be:placed in the old Parish Church. The movement is at present only in its inception, but when once properly organised it will doubtless be taken up and carried out in a manner worthy of the late rev. gentleman, who was dearly beloved by Churchmen and Nonconformists alike.

Death of Mrs J. Jenkins, Court Road. THE FUNERAL. As an end to a long and painful illness the death occurred on Sunday last of Mrs J. Jenkins, the beloved wife of Mr John Jenkins, of the Collector's Department of the Barry District Council, at the early age of 25 years. The event was the termination of a married life of not 12 months' duration, and Mr Jenkins is accorded profound sympathy on all hands. Mrs Jenkins was taken ill in a very short time after her marriage, and at a time when her mother, Mrs Phillips, widow of the late Mr White Phillips, and the family had removed from Hafod to reside in the town. All the remedies that medical skill could devise were utilid in the interest of the patient, but these were unavailing, and she passed peacefully away into the sleep that is called death.'i The funeral, which took place on Wednesday was very large, and indicated very clearly the profound sorrow and sympathy that existed with Mr Jenkins and Mrs Jenkins' family. Prior to the cortege leaving for Merthyr Dovan Cemetery the mournful strains of that grand old hymn- Beth sydd i mi yn y byd Ond gorthrymder mawr o hyd "— were sung to the tune Aberystwith. In the chapel house the Rev T. P. Thomas (Hafod) and the Rev Walter Daniel (Cardiff) took part in an impressive service, and at the graveside the Rev Aaron Davies, D.D., and the Rev W. Williams officiated, the hymn— Bydd myrdd o ryfeddodau, Ar doriad boreu wawr "— was also sung. The funeral arrangements were entrusted to Messrs James Jones & Co., Barry Dock, the well-known undertakers, and gave entire satisfaction.
