EDUCATION BILL CRITICISED.—At a meeting of the South Cheshire and District Association of Sunday Schools and congregations held in Matthew Henry s Chapel on Thursday, the following resolu- tion, proposed by the Rev. J. K. Montgomery seconded by the Rev. G. A. Payne (Knutsford), was unanimously adopted" That while rejoicing atanv proposal to improve the education of the country and to co-ordinate all its branches under onA authority we are of opinion that the Bill submitted by the Government in its destruction of school boards directly elected by the ratepayers—in its increased support to denominational schools without giving controlling power to those who pay rates and taxes, in its failure to provide proper training schools for teachers of all denominations in the increased power it gives to the clergy, and in its diminution of the powers of the people, is not worthy of support, and should be radically amended or rejected by Parliament." Copies were ordered to be sent to the Government, to the leader of the Opposition, and to the Press.
