NOTES AND COMMENTS. Snow fell on Monday afternoon in York- shire. The twenty-third annual show of the Lampeter Agricultural Society will be held on Wednesday next. Tenders for provisions, etc., are invited in our advertising columns this week by the Guardians of the Aberystwyth, and the Tre- garon Unions, and the Aberystwyth In- firmary. Cromwell's statue at Westminster is to be unveiled on October 31. A committee is being formed to make preparations for a national demonstration on the same evening. The Earl of Rosebery has consented to speak on this occasion. The Council of the Cardiff University College has appointed Professor Thompson to discharge the duties of the principalship during the illness of Principal Viriamu Jones, who is at present abroad. The latest reports state that Principal Jones is making satisfactory progress. It is announced that, in addition to the University of Wales, the General Medical Council and the Education Department have recognised the senior certificate of the Cen- tral Welsh Board of Education. The Educa- tion Department has also recognised the junior certificate of the Board. Mr. David Evans, Traethgwyn, New Quay, has been presented with the certificate of itlie Royal Humane Society, for his bravery in saving from drowning at the risk of his own life, a few weeks ago, Mr. William Morgan, of Pontyberem, Carmar- thenshire. Signs of a widespread revolt against President M'Kinley's policy of the forcible subjugation of the Filipinos are multiplying. Intense dissatisfaction is shown in the States, even in stiff Republican quarters, at the false position in which the President is placing the country. Mr. J. Bryn Roberts, M.P., speaking at the re-opening of Bottwnog Intermediate School, Carnarvonshire, last week, said he at one time secretly thought that too many Intermediate schools were being erected, but having seen the results he gladly confessed his error, and ;admitted that the policy adopted had turned out the most beneficial. Special educational classes for the benefit of the police were inaugurated at Manchester last week. In his address to the members of the force, Chief Constable Peacock laid stress on the usefulness of such classes, and hinted they should have been started long ago. The ideals which he commended to the force under his control were sobriety, good conduct and intelligence. At a meeting of the Montgomeryshire County Council, on Friday, Lord Powis, Mr. Humphreys-Owen, M.P., Colonel Pryce- Jones, M.P., Mr. A. W. Williams Wynn, Mr. R. Jones, Pertheirin, and others, took part in a long and animated discussion on the Tithe Rent Charge Act. On a division a resolution condemning the Act was passed by 26 votes against 13. The Liverpool Annual Licensing Sessions were concluded at the end of last week, having lasted eight days. The magistrates have refused to renew 13 full licenses. In four other cases of full licences there were no applications. Two 1869 beer licences were refused, and in one case there was no application. For the renewal of six off licences there was no application, making a total reduction in the number of licences in the city of 26. The Executive Committee of the Amalga- mated Society of Railway Servants, who are now holding their autumn session in London passed the following resolution, That this Executive Committee of the Amalgamated Society of Railway Servants, representing 60,000 working men, strongly urges upon the Government the great necessity of using every possible effort to settle the dispute with the Transvaal Government by peaceful methods. We are of opinion that if war occurs it will inflict great suffering and privation on the workpeople of both countries. We think the real motive is to strike a blow at the independence of the Boers, so that new fields of capitalistic exploitation can be opened up; and we hereby register our strongest disapproval of such a policy. Mr. Thomas Darlington. H.M.I. of Schools sailed for Russia, last week. For successful advertising at moderate charges send to the" Welsh Gazette. This week 11 Philip Sydney contributes some interesting notes on the work of the Advanced Dairy School at the University College, Aberystwyth. Mr. Goscombe John, to whom the com- mission for the monument to be erected to the late Daniel Owen, the Welsh novelist, has been entrusted, has completed his clay model of the memorial statue, and next week it is to be viewed by representatives of the Committee who have charge of the matter. The statue is to be in bronze, and it is ex- pected that it will be erected at Mold, either on the Bailey Hill Recreation Ground or at the 11 Cross at the bottom of the town. The secretary of the Royal Botanic Society of London writes that attention has for some been given to the training of gardeners, for whom there is an increasing sphere of remunerative employment. A practical gardening school, officially recog- I zn nised by the Technical Education Board, is held in the society's gardens, R3gent's Park. There is a three-year course of thorough I zn instruction, certificates are granted, and the society makes every effort to obtain situa- tions for its pupils. "It is a melancholy fact," says the Spectator, that while the great religious papers of Rome exult in the conviction of Dreyfus, and while no bishop or leading cleric in. France has stepped forward to defend the innocent or preach the sacredness of justice, Zola, the naturalistic'' novelist whose writings good people in this country bov- cott, has twice risked his fortune and his liberty on behalf of the powerless victim." We believe a parallel to this melancholy fact will be found in the life of Voltaire/when that famous infidel made a noble effort to redress the cruel wrongs which the Protestant brothers Callas suflered at the hands of a Popish faction. The thirty-second annual show of the Merionethshire Agricultural Society was held at Dolgelley last Thursday. "Taken altogether the show showed an improvement on previous years. The Welsh cattle were particularly good, and the horses showed considerable improvement, especially among the youjiger animals. This the judges considered a promising sign as it showed the introduction of a better breed of horses. The secretary this year again was Mr. E. M. Roberts, Cefntreforisa, and it is acknowledged that the continued prosperity of the Society is due in no mean degree to the sustained and active interest he takes in its success. The-preliminary meeting of the Federa- tion of Welsh School Boards will be held at Llandrindod to-day, and the following is one of the principal motions for discussion "That this Conference draws attention to the fact that there is at present no direct repre- sentation of School Boards on the Welsh Central Board and on most of the Governing Bodies of the Intermediate and Technical Schools in Wales and Monmouthshire, and is strongly of opinion that steps should be at once taken to secure such representation; and that the Federation of School Boards be requested to give the matter their early consideration." Last Saturday, Lipton Limited were fined £50 and costs for having in their possession at their Jam Factory, a quantity of unsound strawberries, black currants, and raspberries intended for preparation for the food of man. The Daily Chronicle says that the verdict against Liptons in the great jam case is something to the good in the com- munity's long and expensive account with unwholesome food. For the moral of the case is not that Liptons are sinners above all others, but that the community is getting wiser, better informed, and more careful of its health. Those who think that in jam and other things it is only the flavour that counts should take note of the verdict. Nor is the verdict a warning to manufacturers only-it is just as much counsel for con- sumers, and as much needed. If consumers were not so ignorant and indifferent about the soundness of what they eat provided it tastes all right, such cases could not occur. 0 Olive Schreiner sends a stirring appeal to the people of this country to support by meetings held throughout the British Isles the position taken up by Mr. John Morley in his Arbroath speech" if a national disaster is to be avoided." She speaks of the Transvaal offer in regard to the franchise as a generous arrangement," and alludes to the conviction being forced upon the Boers that 11 the men for the hour in authority in England have determined to goad them into war and take their land from them." She pictures war and its consequences in South Africa in lurid colours, saying We may take the land and lower the little flag so dear to the Boer, but we shall have placed a stain upon our own that the centuries will not wash out. South Africa will be left torn and bleeding in every part, con- sumed by bitterness, till such time as she is strong enough to rise and work out her own redemption." Only the international speculator will benefit. It is true, she says, that the bulk of the English nation have no desire to take land and independence from the Boers, but there are times when silence and inaction are as criminal as active par- ticipation in crime. In conclusion, it is desired that the principles that animated the action of General Dundas, Sir George Grey, Sir William Butler, and such men be reverted to, and the bond of sympathy and affection binding South Africa to England will never be broken." An exhibition of Welsh industries was opened at Welshpool on Thursday by the Countess of Powis, who has taken an active part in the movement for encouraarinff trade in the Principality. The exhibition included a capitil lot of tweeds, yarns, wood carving, &e. Among those present were Earl Powis, Sir Watkin Wynn, Lady Pryce-Jones, Mr. Humphreys-Owen, M.P., Colonel Pryce- Jones, M.P., Mrs. Remington Wilson, Lady Osborne Morgan, the Hon. Mrs. West, the Hon. W. Hill Trevor, the Hon. Mrs. Buckley Owen, and Lord Henry Vane Tempest. Mr. Humphreys-Owen, M.P., in proposing a vote of thanks to the Countess of Powis, said he was glad to see so very extensive a collection of articles of home produce, and also to know that they had received the approbation of very good judges. It seemed to him that the workers of Montgomeryshire had a very good oppor- tunity before them of producing a special class of goods which carried on the face of them the mark of the individual intelligence and artistic sense of the worker. He felt that not only commercially but socially the diffusion of taste and skill would bring about an extremely valuable improvement in their daily life, and speaking on behalf of the educational institutions with which he had something to do, he might say it was their great aim not merely to make the school literary nurseries, but to make the hand and eye of the pupil to work together.
WAR: A MONSTROUS CALAMITY. ELSEWHERE we print a resume of Mr. JOliN MORLEY'S great speech at Manchester on Friday night on the present crisis and the dangers of war. Mr. MORLEY declared that to wage war with the Boers would be a monstrous calamity. Such a war, of the strongest Government in the world against a weak little Republic the strongest Government in the world, with untold wealth and inexhaustible resources against a small nation of peasant farmers—will bring no glory, no profit; but endless mischief. Victory may be assured, and a new pro- vince may be added to the Empire, but it would be an unutterable wrong, and would lead to a national catastrophe. We sincerely hope that even yet it is not too late for the counsels of peace to prevail, and that Britons will not forfeit their place among the nations of the earth as a truthful, brave and generous people, and place a stain upon their flag, as Olive Schreiner says in her stirring letter,—a stain that the centuries will not wash out. "There is no more fatal error in human affairs," said M r MORLEY, than to mistake a fraction of a case for the whole and there is no more fatal error in politics than only to be able to see one thing at once." Two or three years ago the people of the United States were clamouring for naval and military expedi- tions. They saw only one aspect of the cause, and to-day they are repenting and in a few years this country also, said Mr. Morley, would surely repent of the attitude it is now taking. At the same meeting, Mr. Courtney, with telling effect, pointed to the calamities which military jingoism has brought upon France. Un- bounded militarism has degraded France to the lowest depths of moral squalor; and the war fever which is raging in our own country at the present time is fraught with the germs of the same disease.
THE ABERYSTWYI H COLLEGE. FACTORS OF SUCCESS. Two vacancies on the staff of the Aberyst- wyth College are soon to be filled up. One post is vacant owing to the departure of Mr. MIDDLETON, the lecturer in agriculture, and the other to that of Mr. MCINTYEE, the lecturer in philosophy, It is not our busi- ness or intention to dictate to the College Authorities whom to elect to the vacant posts, and we have no means of knowing who the likely candidates are, but we have a right to state a proposition which should guide the Council in their choice of candi- dates, and we propose to do it in the course of this article. The prosperity of the Col- lege is of vital interest to the town, that may be a small matter, but it is also of vital interest to Wales and to the future of the Welsh people, and that is a very important issue. The prosperity of the College has been largely due to two factors in the past; it is a college built through the efforts of the poor people of Wales, and it has always been very near to the heart of Wales and the Welsh people. Presided over at its in- ception by a Principal who was loved and revered by the masses of the people, it im- mediately took hold of their imagination; and no act of the present PRINCIPAL has tended in any way to slacken that hold. But though the PRINCIPAL may have the full confidence of the Welsh people, it is quite possible that owing to an inj udicious selection of teachers the warm feelings of the people may be- come cool and eventually even hostile. Now we think this is a real danger, and one that ought to be carefully guarded against, and we propose to show one way at any rate in which this danger may be avoided. An- other factor in the success of the College has undoubtedly been the fact that the pro- fessors and lecturers have done their duty so nobly in the past. They have worked for small salaries and they have stood by the institution in its hardest days. Many of them have not been from the first in sym- pathy with the new life around them. Aberystwyth had no old traditions for them, and the self-sacrificing generosity of the poor people of Wales conveyed little to them; but the names of Professors ANGUS and ETHI, of Dr. IIUMPIDGE and Professor MACCULLUM will not be readily forgotten. Now we maintain that the two chief factors in the present success of the College are: a generous nation, and a sympathetic and hard- working staff. How are these conditions to be maintained ? We believe that as far as the electian of new members of the staff is concerned a general rule should be laid down, not necessarily a hard and fast rule, that, all things being equal, Welshmen should have the preference. We do not doubt that most people who have had any experience of public life in Wales, and of the injustices daily committed through the appointment of monoglot Englishmen to official posts in Wales, will agree with us. The reasons for this are evident. Life in Wales is a very different matter from life in England, and habits of thought and custom are different. Then there is the difference of language. It takes a non-Welshman a considerable time to fix his bearings amongst a number of Welsh students, and Englishmen as a rule care next to nothing for the habits and ways of other nations, as they are so convinced of their own superiority in every direction. We can imagine that an Englishman un- versed in the theological strife and religious life of Wales would find considerable diffi- culty in instilling the teachings of Philosophy into the mind of a Welsh youth, while that very knowledge which most Welshmen pos- sess would be invaluable to him as a teacher. We can also imagine that an Englishman or Scotchman elected to a chair in agriculture would encounter great difficulties in teaching the sons of Welsh farmers, but the son of a Welsh farmer, provided he has the requisite training, would know instinctively how to proceed. The difficulties his students would encounter are the very same difficulties he had to conquer himself. Surely this is a logical conclusion, and one which should appeal to all who have knowledge of rural life in Wales. In the matter of agriculture one would almost go so far as to say that a well qualified Welshman should have the preference over an excellently qualified Englishman or Scotchman. There is also another side to the question. Every appoint- ment of a Welshman to a post in one of the National Colleges draws tighter the bond of sympathy between them and the Welsh people generally. This is a very real truth and, unfortunately, one which is often lost sight of, for the very success of the College depends upon the respect and esteem felt for them by the people who have subscribed so generously to their support. We do not want a staff of inefficient Welshmen, but better even that than a staff of Englishmen com- pletely out of touch with the aspirations and ideals of the Welsh people.
