NOTES AND COMMENTS. On Wednesday afternoon a meeting was held at Aberayron for the purpose of con- sidering the advisability Qf extending the Vale of Rheidol Light Railway from Aber- ystwyth to that town. Mr A. J. Hughes, town clerk, Aberystwyth, explained the scheme, the meeting pledged its support. Recent elections have brought into strong relief the well known fact that Aberayron is a veritable hotbed of sectarianism the flame of which, unfortunately, is continually being fanned by people who pose as leaders of the public. of the public. The most significant point in connection with the Bill to Prevent the Sale of In- toxicating Liquor to Children under 16 years of age was the overwhelming majority by which it passed its second reading. When Crombie, who was in charge of the bill, and who moved its second reading in a most admirable and effective speech, moved the closure at about five o'clock, there was a full House, and the closure was carried by 407 to 31, and then second reading was carried by 372 to 54. In view of this consensus of opinion the Government is not likely to refuse to give facilities for a bill supported with so overwhelming a majority in the House, and by nearly every decent- miiided majj aud woraau in the country, It was suggSisted at Croydon last week tltat William Lindsay, 18, who was com- miiy for trial oti a burglary charge, had sufficed morally frrm reading cheap sensa- tional OOoks, a pile oÐ which, 3ft. higiI" was found k* his bedroom. At the* Rhyl Police' Court on Monfftsy three young: men were fisiad Z2 12s 4d eacb, including costs, for being drunk and dis- orderly on Sunday evening. The justices stated that the question of Sunday drinking' was becoming's serious one for the county, aed they wers; determined to enforce the law. At the annual' aateeting of tliv Manchester Salferd, and District Temperanee TUnion, on Saturday, the Rev Canon Hicks- said there was no ultimate solution of Uhe- liquor difficulty except that of placing tho matter in the hands of the' people. That was the outcome of Lord Peer; suggestions, aXID they should receive the support of all whoswere- working to that end. The London correspondent of the Man- chester Guardian --zays:-The brief account which has been allowed to appear of the private meeting of inspectors of schools at the Offices of the Board ei Education on. Friday excites some comment. It is staged that Sir John Gorst explained the working- of the block grant. There was no need fbr him to explain this to the inspectors, wha knew already quite as much about the- matter as the Vice-President could tell* them. It is rather suspected that this private meeting marks the beginning of a«j effort on the part of the Department to keep- down the grants to schools. For more than three years the Treasury refused to consent- to the block grant principle, which meant an addition to the total annual Education Vote;: and from what I now hear the system proves to be more generous to the schools than the Treasury is disposed to allow. On the other hand, I should mention that a, meeting of inspectors is held at the Board of Education every year, but hitherto the rule has been for the gathering to consist of chief inspectors only. I should not be surprised if the meeting had reference also to impend iug changes in the iectorate: itself. I The Earl of Rosebery gave an address f last week at a meeting in connection with the London School of Economics and Political Science. He explained the objects and the lines of study adopted in connection with the school, and expressed the hope that they would add to their lectures a course on the effect of the gigantic combinations of capital which were being organised into offensive and defensive trusts in the United States. He pointed out the degree in which the policy of the Gi-e-tt Powers was dictated I by commercial considerations both in the Far and Near East and in Africa. They were not, he said, actuated so much by the desire for territorial extension on the map as by the hope of commercial progress. The London School he regarded as a practical step in the movement that many of them had ^keenly in view at the present moment towards training the nation in the competition of the world. We were justly proud of our valour and adventure, but in the systematised competition of the world more was needed than these raw qualities. He repeated the advice that he had given in previous speeches—that it was necessary for us as a nation to put our affairs on a business footing. The Clerical party, who obtained a majority upon the Birmingham School Board at the last election, propose to reverse p the policy of their predecessors, the "Liberal Eight," upon the subject of religous education From 1873 until the end of last year the Liberals controlled the Board, and under their direction the teachers read the Bible without note or comment each morning and afternoon, and on Tuesday and Friday mornings the schools were let for half an hour to voluntary teachers for the purpose of giving religous instruction. The new Board, of which the Bishop of Coventry is chairman, propose that, except in the case of schools which are let for voluntary religous instruction, the children assembled for school opening shall sing a hymn and repeat the,. Lord's Prayer; afterwards they shall be formed into classes (except infants) and ac- cording to a time-table shall read and learn portions of Scripture by heart, and receive from the head and assistant teachers of the school, in, each class, lessons on scriptural subjects of a simple character, as well as the moral lessons prescribed by the regulations of the Board. The new regulations, which will come into force in June, are to be pro- posed for adoption on Friday.
WOMEN POOR-LAW GUARDIANS. CHE return of Mrs E. H. JAMES at the top )f the poll, in her ward, at last week's election of Guardians at Aberystwyth is a striking object lesson of the well known truth that many a good cause has to suffer at the hands of its advocates. That the cause of women has suffered in this manner at Aberystwyth is a fact too trite for comment. Mrs ELIZABETH JAMES, as is well known at that town, tried twice, but was unsuccessful on each occasion. The fact that the public refused to elect Mrs ELIZABETH JAMES was in no way a proof of prejudice against woman generally, as the present result shows., We do not pretend to understand the attitude of those women who pout," and decline to give any assistance at elections on the pretext that men should take no part in the selection of women as candidates. One woman guardian cannot be expected to do much; but the election of Mrs E. H. JAMES has prepared the way for others. In the meantime it is to be hoped the Aberystwyth Guardians will at once exercise the powers rested in them by the Poor Law Act, and co-opt two women guardians to co-operate with Mrs JAMES. It would be well to know what part, if any, the Secretary of the Women's Liberal Association took in this election; we shall await her next report with interest.
WILL IT WORK. THE details of the scheme adopted by the Merioneth County Council for the mainten- ance and repair of their main roads by con- tract cover eleven pages of foolscap. The drafting of such an exhaustive proposal must have cost its authors considerable time and labour. The minuteness of the knowledge which they have had to acquire, and the admirable manner in which they have mar- shalled together their facts and figures is an eloquent testimony to that devotion to the public service which is, unfortunately, too often overlooked and too easily forgotten. But after a careful perusal of the whole scheme, with its formidable array of sections and clauses, one is driven to the conclusion that it is far too involved to be workable. The process of analysing the work and the endeavour to provide for all contingencies has, as was almost inevitable, led to endless intricacies, with the result that the very completeness of the scheme makes it quite bewildering. But, these considerations apart, it is, we believe, open to question whether the scheme can be made to work with advantage to all concerned without undergoing considerable improvement in the way of simplification. Each contractor is to append to his tender a schedule of prices for materials, labour, and other requirements, such as (1) macadam of the specified size, at per ton delivered on any parts of the roads as directed by the agents of the Council; (2) sifting or binding of specified size and quality at per ton delivered in like manner; (3) price for laying macadam on the roads at per ton; (4) stubbing roads and laying on macadam at per ton; (5) stubbing roads, laying on of macadam, and rolling at per ton, to include cost of necessary binding and laying of same (6) laying on of macadam "only" at per ton (7) cleaning channels at per yard (8) labour at per day (9) mason at per day; (10) masonry suitable for re- taining, protecting, and parapet walls at per cube yard. Now, all these specifications may be necessary, but it is very doubtful whether any contractor will care to bind himself to conditions which make him res- ponsible even for the elements. It is true that Clause 5 ill the conditions provides for extl a. payment for any exceptional repairs" necessitated by damage from storms. But does not Clause 19 nullify it? This olansn provides that "any damage that may be done to the load by water owing to a drain, gulley, watercourse, or ditch being blocked or defective shall be forthwith made good by the contractor." Who is to sit in judgment on t: the Acts of Providence" and to deter- mine wnat snail or shail not be considered exception; 1" repairs utider Clause 5? CIa lI, U D ;:l.-o brittle/ with difficulties, and will, i'ear, to interminable disputes. A question of supervision seems to OJ from satisfjiotoi y. The Council pro- to employ a qualified person during the i mont'-s to inspect the roads and ••k quantity and quality of materials, pei son to devote the whole of hjs time to the work and to make s^pHse v.w'ts for the purposes of inspection. The J'Ai-y, including travelling and other expenses;. bo be at the rate of X3 10s per week. Fi on the end of March to the end of September j this inspector will be employed only one week" in each mouth, and that at the same salary. Roads are used and worn at all seasons, and the wisdom of suspending such, an irnpol-bant branch of the work as super- vision is one that cannot be commended. Even granting that a competent person can be fou,nd undertake the work on the terms prescribed,, the duties of his office will at best be discharged only intermittently moreover, the work of supervision will lose that continuity which is so indispensable to thoroughness. The position of the county surveyor in relation to the new official requires further explanation. The services of the surveyor as far as main roads are concerned are to be dispensed with, but it is not stated on what terms he is to discharge the remaining duties of the office. We have already on other occasions dwelt upon the merits of the policy of devolving such im- portant public work as- the maintenance of roads upon others than the officials and servants in the direct employ of the public bodies themselves, and we cannot find suffi- cient reasons in the scheme of the Merioneth County Council for changing our views The Council is certainly running quite counter to the trend of the age, and one would have expected that all the lessons of the London County Council would not have fallen on stony ground, even among the hills of Mer- ioneth. Divide and conquer is an excel- lent motto, and we believe that the Mer- ioneth Council would have done well to adopt it in dealing with the difficult question of the maintenance of their roads. The system in vogue on the railways works to perfection. Here the work is divided into so many "lengths" or sections, and each ganger or foreman is responsible for his own section, and so many gangers and lengths are under the supervision of an inspector. In this manner the largest amount of work compatible with efficiency is secured. The inspector, by being placed over so many lengths, has the advantage of comparative knowledge, and is afforded a kind of standard of quality and amount of work he may reasonably expect. If the inspector finds the work of certain sections falling below the mark he has, in order to get the re- quired efficiency, either to add more men or curtail the length. The Merioneth Coun- cil would do well to consider the merits of this system.
WELSH DISESTABLISII- MENT. The Historical Case against The Church. [BY LLEWELYN WILLIAMS.] MAXT years ago Mr GLADSTONE made a speech on Welsh Disestablishment in the House of Commons. He was said to have been carefully coached for the occasion by Dean, now Bishop, OWEN. The speech was a defence of the Church of England in Wales;—indeed, the G.O.M. said that we "might as well speak of the Church of Wales in England as of the Church of England in Wales." The present writer ventured some time after to send to Mr GLADSTONE a copy of an article in which it was sought to prove that so far from the present Establishment being able to claim continuity from the Ancient British Church, the historian could put his finger on definite dates—in the 12th century-and say, Before this time there was no Church of England in Wales." It is of interest to note that Mr GLADSTONE authorised his Secretary to write to say that he agreed with the historical statement laid before him—and the letter and the article were published at the time. Of late years Dis- establishment has receded into the back- ground, and the Bishop of ST. ASAPH assumes that the agitation for a separate Disestablishment Bill for Wales has been shattered for ever. The Welsh members and the Welsh people will not be found to agree with his lordship's view. Next week si resolution in favour of Welsh Dis- Bstablishment will be moved in the Rouse of Commons, and it is to be hoped that the historical case against the Church will be clearly laid before the House. It is all very well to declaim against the connection of Church and State but such arguments are equally good in England and Scotland as in Wales. If Wales wants a separate measure, she must make out a case for preferential treatment. It is not sufficient to say that the Church is in a minority every Welsh- man knows that that is so, but the Bishop of ST. ASAPH can juggle with figures, and nothing is so fallacious as statistics. The strength of the Welsh case against the tD Church lies in the history of the Establish- ment,. and it is for that reason tfqt I ask indulgt 'jwje in putting fctward the fc&wing somewhat j*oi»gh and iiicotaplete- ARGUMEI'W STROM THAT OF VIEW. When AueSTSTiXE first c,-tim to Englatfcd L found in Wales a Church that was eve than ancient anJ historic. With an arro- | gance worthy of Sis proudest s\sccessor, he claimed homage from the prelates of the I Welsh Church—the Mother Churdh of this island. The story is familiar to readers of English history. The Welsh abbots, led by Dinoth of Bangor, repudiated the preten- sions of the upstart see of Canterbury as scornfully as they would the assumption of DR. BENSON, who stated at Rhyl a few years -igo that lie came from the steps of the throne of ST. AUGUSTINE to assert the one- ness and indivisibility of the Church in England and in Wales. For centuries the ancient British Church remained free and independent, both of English king and English Archbishop. When the princes of Wales went to war in defence of their country and their homes, they were followed by the blessings and the prayers of the National Church. If they were defeated they were mourned, and their souls were prayed for, by the clergy of the Welsh Church if they were successful they re- turned amid the sounds of triumphant Te Deums. In the twelfth century ALL THIS WAS CHANGED. The Normans had found the conquest of Wales a harder task than the conquest of England. One great battle settled the fate of England for all time the character of the country and the hardihood of the people rendered the conquest of Wales less easy. The Normans had therefore to adopt different tactics. They determined to encircle Wales with a chain of castles, so that a line of com- munication should be always free for Norman troops along the coast from Cardiff to Bangor and from Bangor to Chester. Cardiff was the first object of their attack, and it became their first stronghold. Al- most under the shadow of its frowning castle stood the demure little cathedral of Llandaff, and in 11 35-first of the Welsh sees-Llan- daff became subject to the metropolitian authority of Canterbury. Then followed Bangor and St. David's, and last of all St. Asaph in 1172. The subjection of the Welsh sees marks the growing advance of the Norman power in Wales. It was no voluntary amalgamation of two Churches, as we have lately been told, but THE FOISTING OF A YOKE upon the Welsh nation which the Welsh princes, the Welsh clergy and the Welsh people vainly struggled against. Fortunately z,9 this is not a matter that admits of contention. (The fact,' says Bishop Stubbs (Const. History, i. 544) 1 that their bishops received their consecration at Canterbury, and were from the .reign of Henry 1. elected and admitted under the authority of the Kings of England, is sufficient to prove that any- thing like real sovereignty was lost to the so-called Kings of Wales.' What is the inference from this passage? That if the 'so-called Kings of Wales' possessed any real sovereignty, if the Welsh people could have done as they liked, this subjection of the Welsh Church to Canterbury, and its connection with the English State, would never have been permitted. In fact, there are still extant several petitions from Welsh bishops, abbots, chapters and princes to the Popes of Rome praying to be relieved of a yoke which was even then felt to be intoler- able. From that time to this almost every generation has witnessed some protest made by Welshmen against the establish ment of an alien institution which was not intended to give spiritual comfort to the people, but to act as a useful auxiliary to the secular arm in the conquest of Wales. The establishment owes its origin in Wales to a political purpose; and the taint of its origin has coloured all its subsequent history. (To be continued).
CARDIGAN DISTRICT LETTER.. CHORAL DIFFICULTIES. It seems quite evident that no effort will! be made to form a choir to compete in the. chief choral competition at the forthcoming. Cardigan Eisteddfod. This is a deplorable. display of apathy in a district where singers abound, where a letter notation is almost universal, and where there are halt-a-dozen leaders of repute. Cardigan appears to be suffering from a congestion of musical talent, without having anyone sufficiently commanding in ability and experience tc effect a cure. Cardigan will play but an insignificant part in connection with its Eisteddfod if it does not contest its chief prize against all comers. The choir leaders of the district have the matter in their own hands. It is for them to meet and settle- the question by lot, if they cannot do so otherwise, and having thus elected a leader they should loyally kstand by him, acr lieutenants, and do all they can in organizing: and training a representative choir. This iii, the only solution of the present difficulty-- the want of a leader. PUPPIES! I Oar local paper sometimes get exhilar^ —" exhilarated by the exuberance of iW own verbosity."
