The resolution was supported by the Rev. Thomas Richards, Newport, at some length: He said that the rivalry of old among the Free Nonconformist Denominations1 had been to great extent removed through the influence of the Free Church Council in South Wales and Monmouthshire. He spoke of the importance 01 making a strenuous united effort to release the Anglican Church from its distressed position owing to its connection with Parliament. The connection between Church and State was faW to the genuiness of religious life and to the loftiness of religious achievement. It was not a just thing to have in Wales a Church that was a. favourite of Parliament. The disestab- lishment question had been before the country! for the last 64 years. The justice of the demand of the Welsh people for Disestablishment had long been recognised by the whole Liberal Party, and the present Government were pledged to redress this long-standing griev- ance during the life time of the present Parlia- ment. Not a few Conservatives in Wales desir- ed that religious equality should be attained. Col. Prvce Jones, the late Tory member for Montgomery Borough, declared that until the question was definitely settled there never would be peace and contentment in WalesL Let every lover of justice support the Welsh claim. A hearty vote of thanks to the speaker terminated an enthusiastic meeting. 'LINSEKD COMPOUND' for Coughs and Colds. 01 proven efficacy. Of Chemists only. 9Jd. 1/H, 3/9
