THAT ETERNAL TANK. THE Guardians of the Machynlleth Union never seem to weary of having a more or less unedifying discussion on the eternal tank. It is their perennial topic and, true as a meeting comes round, it is sure to pop up, either through some influence from out- side, or through something akin to qualms of conscience from within or it might be, by this time, through sheer force of habit. To Mr EDWARD HUGHES, the chairman, it is evidently a joy for ever," for he cannot bear the idea of its removal, and seems never tired of doing his best to prolong its existence. It is really hard to understand the attitude of men of the standing and reputation of Mr HUGHES on a question of such vital importance to the community. Is it due to educated ignorance," or has the conservative element permeated every fibre of the constitution, and tainted every department of life to such an extent, that a struggle must be made to the last for the preservation of what is admitted to be the greatest abomination in the place. At Machynlleth, to-day, the word tank covers the greatest nuisance in the town for the "tank," be it remembered, is only an euphemism for the receptacle of all that is foul and filthy, and dangerous to public health it is the laager of the invisible hosts of Disease and Death, whence they will issue some day in all their virulence, and short will be the shrift they will make of the inhabitants, unless a timely frontal attack be made upon their encampment at the tank."
NOTES AND COMMENTS. A Footman quoth Punch has been recently appointed Headmaster of S. David's College School. May he be successful as was a Butler at Harrow" It will be seen from a report in another part of the paper that the attendance at the Cross Inn School, under the fLlansantffraed O „1_ 1 T» 1 • 11 1 T "L ounooi jtfoara, is aepioramy low—only 68 per cent. Somebody should be made to account for this. There is gross negligence somewhere, negligence which must prove disheartening to the teachers and fatal to the success of the school. In his annual report, presented at the last meeting of the Aberayron Board of Guard- ians, Dr. Jenkyn Lewis, the Medical Officer of Health, dwelt at length upon the urgent need for improvement in the sanitary condition of the rural districts; the import- ance of introducing reforms to prevent the growth of contagious diseases; and the advantages of adopting effective promutiorl- ary measures such as isolation hospitals. The report upon the whole, was not weighed down with discouraging pessimism but we should like to know what authority has Dr. Jenkyn Lewis for saying that "owing to a looser grip on certain elementary, but very important, hygienic laws, a process of physical degradation has been steadily going or for the last hundred years or more." We thought that, in the matter of health, we were far better off than our ancestors and that statistics prove that the average length of life is increasing at such a satisfactory "te that every child born into the world in this country, has now a reasonable expec- tation of living a longer life by eight years </Km if he or she, as the cafe may be, had fu st seen the light a hundred years ago. The next lialf-yearly horse fair at Aber- ystwyth will be held on the first Monday in May.

When the Northampton Town Council decided to provide a new -cemeterv, it was understood that the Churchmen had no desire that any part should be consecrated. since however, the passing of the new JDurial Act the corporation has been peti- tioned to apply for consecration on the ground that it is not now open to the objec- tions formerly urged against it, and that'the expense will be voluntarily contributed. After a lengthened debate, the town council has decided, without a division, to decline to comply with the request. Their reasons are that no distinctions should exist in parochial burial places, and that the complete cQntrol of the cemetery should be in the bands of the corporation, as would not be the case if part were consecrated. With the object of assisting teachers in rural elementary schools to give efteet to the proposals of the Board of Education, the County Council of Northumberland has secured the services of Professor Miall, for the organisation of a summer course of nature-study at Berwick-on-Tweed. The instruction will consist of object-lessons, lessons on the structure and functions of a green leaf, systematic practical work, and daily excursions. During the excursions attention will be paid to particular topics of natural history, such as the pollination of flowers by insects, the special adaptions of water plants, maritime plants, and moorland plants, the structure and range of the local sea-weeds, the animals of the seashore, the animals of a brook, wings and feathers,'the flight of birds, the surface life of the sea. Miscellaneous collecting and desultory obser- vation will be made strictly subordinate to, the main object of the excursion. To put questions and:find out the answers," says Professor Miall, is the best form of nature.. study." Lampeter School Board, as will be seen from our local news, has adopted the same method, with a success that has justified and encouraged the Board and its staff to continue, and even to extend their operations.. j. Considerable dissatisfaction has been caused Ii in Manchester by the issue of the report j. of the City Justices' Committee on the recent magisterial scandal. Two of the incriminated, magistrates resigned during the inquiry. After some correspondence with the- Chancellor of the Duchy, it was expected, in view of the general charges, made by Chief Constable Peacock, the superintendents, of police, and certain justices, of undue influence being exercised by members Xlcanswc Bench in favour of publicans, a number of other names would have been mentioned in the report. The committee, however, merely endorsed the allegations of the Chief Cons- table-that the number of dismissals in public-house cases is greatly out of proportion to those in other classes of offences,. and finds that some magistrates (names un- mentioned) have displayed exceptional inter- est in these cases by their attendance at courts, sometimes to oppose applications of the police, and sometimes to reverse decisions of the licensing justices. The. committee concludes by recommending that the special attention of magistrates should be called to that section of the Licensing Act which pre- cludes anyone interested in the liquor traffic from adjudicating under'the Act under a penalty of .£100 for each offence. Further, that a record be kept in future of the names of magistrates who vote for the renewal or refusal of licenses.
CARDIGAN DISTRICT LETTER. THE CENSUS. The following comparative return of the Census for the Borough of Cardigan is now made available by the courtesy of Mr Griffith Hugh Mathias, the Deputy Registrar 1881 1891 1901 Parish of St Mary's 2671 2596 2666 Bridgend & Abbey Hamlets 942 836 835 3633 3432 3501 It will thus be seen that the loss of population in 1891 as compared with 1881 was 181 whereas in 1901 there is an increase of 69 as compared with 1891. HONOURS DIVIDED. Mr. Augustus Brigstocke (L.), of Blaen- pant, won by a single vote in the contest against Major Webley Parry Pryse (C.), of Noyadd Trefawr, for the representation of Llandugwydd on the Cardigan County Council. Under the circumstances it seems a pity that the ratepayers were under the 1 ø te 1 unpleasant necessity or making a selection. However, whether as a test of personal popularity, or of political strength, the resnlt must have been highly pleasing to both gentlemen, for the scale was only just turned in Mr Brigstocke's favotll--150 as against 149 votes. This spirited contest for public office, carrying with it little, if any, personal advantage, is most gratifying; but confessedly it is very rare for two gentlemen endowed with every qualification to exhibit such a break-neck anxiety to sacrifice their time and energy in the public service. The contest was fought between the candidates and their supporters with the best grace possible* and the result has left no trace of bitterness. The returning officer was Mr. W. Evans George, of Newcastle Emlyn. SUICIDE. Daniel Donoghue, the keeper of the Tivy- side Kennels, on Wednesday last week committed suicide by cutting his throat in his bedroom. The deceased man had been a heavy drinker, and this coupled with domestic worries—the death of a child, and the consequent collapse of his wife, must have unhinged his mind, with the sad and awful result. It is believed that being a Roman Catho'ic, the interment of his child without the last rites of his Church, preyed on his mind, and contributed largely to his insane act. TELEPATH,
THE EDUCATION CODE. THE present Government seems bent on undermining our present system of democratic education. The Education Code for 1901, which has now been presented to both Houses of Parliament, contains a large number of small changes from that of last year, but these are generally mere verbal alterations due to the change of reigning monarch, the supersession of the Education Department by the Board of Educa- tion, or a desire for more convenient arrangement of the articles. One cr two little alterations show a desire to extend the usefulness of the Education Acts, such as the permission to teach cookery to boys in seaport towns, and needlework to boys in special circumstances. The general result of the revision of the Code, however, is distinctly reactionary, though the whittling down of the benefits of our educational system is so minute as only to be perceptible on close inspection. In Article 17, for instance, following upon the list of subjects to be taught, the words "other secular subjects approved by the Department" have been cancelled, thus rigidly confining managers within the four corners cf the official subject-list. By Article 18 an inspector is to "inquire whether grant conditions have been fulfilled, instead of to Cc examine," as formerly, the change of wording, if it has any meaning, pointing to greater laxity in the requirements as to efficient teaching. Small schools are allowed to be taught by a teacher possessing only am assistant teacher's 'certificate, but whereas only schools of less than 30 average attend- ance came within this provision the number is now increased by Article 82 to 40. Article 90 provides that the income of a school shall be applied "only for the purpose of public elementary schools." There was a provision in the Article that this was held to include expenditure on a school library, or towards the expense of a jointly em- ployed organizing teacher or teacher of some special subject, but these words have been cancelled. By Article 101 grants on account of dairy work, laundry work, gardening, manual instruction, cookery, and other subjects are limited to children over eleven years of age, and notice is given that next year the age limit will be raised to twelve. Thus, while the Cockerton decision cuts short the school career at its end, the Board of Education is engaged in nibbling away at the beginning. Finally, Article 102 for the first time allows gi-art te be paid on account of a pupil teacher who has been excused the prescribed examination, but has obtained a good or fair report from the Inspector"—thus following up the past policy of the present Government by encouraging an increased proportion of pupil teachers, by a loweringt even of the standard of efficiency of the pupil teachers themselves.
WELSH DISESTABLISH- MENT. The Practical task before Liberals. [BY LLEWELYN WILLIAMS.] ( Continuation.) ONE word on the practical aspect of the question. It is not enough to show that Wales has pre-eminent claims to religious equality, that the existence of an Established Church is an obstacle in the way of her progress, that it produces a festering sore in her social life, and that the agitation for its removal absorbs her national energies and makes it impossible for her to concentrate her full strength on matters of urgent national concern. Politics—and especially Parliamentary politics-are practical things, directed by practical men. Politicians are opportunists, and will always take the line of least resistance. That was the case even with Mr GLADSTOXE how much more is it true of Lord ROSEBERY ? If Wales is as I believe-ill stern earnest over Disestablish- ment, she must bestir herself in time. She must set about to convince the unsentimental creature, the practical politician," that she means business, that she won't be happy- and won't allow anybody else to be happy- until she gets it. I confess that I am disposed to view the existing situation with some measure of alarm. The Bishop of ST. ASAPH told a Young vVales" interviewer the other day that Welsh Disestablishment would never again be resurrected, but that the Welsh demand would be merged in the larger demand for Disestablishment all round." The Bishop possesses a happy faculty of believing what he wants to be true. He never sees facts, except through the mirage of his own fancy. But he is a shrewd man j of the world, and he is accustomed to observe the signs of the time. There is no doubt that Welsh Disestablishment has receded from its old position, and no Welsh Nationalist can regard the present attitude of the- Liberal Party towards it without a feeling of uneasiness. The Chairman of the Welsh Parliamentary Party attended a meeting of the Liberation Society at the City Temple a year or two ago. He was reported to have spoken in favour of a resolution pledging the gathering to Dis- establishment All Round." Lord ROSEBERY the other day attended a dinner given by Mr ALFRED THOMAS to the Welsh members. In the course of a short speech, he is said to have warned his fellow-guests against a display of too much enthusiasm for Welsh questions. The day of enthusiasm is past, and Welsh members, who never had too large a store of that unfashionable com- modity, had better be rid of the last remnants. Lord ROSEBERY was listened to in silence. Some of his hearers, I believe, resented his ominous warning but there are others who are not of the same calibre. The debate on the Catholic University for Ireland, for instance, has shown the fibre of some of the so-called Nationalists of the Welsh Party. Some members are ready to sacrifice everything except their own personal interests in order to gain a cheap reputation for culture and broadmindedness. We know what happened seven years ago. Lord ROSEBERY thought he could play fast and loose with the Welsh demand which he has never understood or tried to understand. Four Welsh members, to their eternal credit, determined to bell the cat. They organised the Welsh Revolt," with the result that Lord ROSEBERY, after having a pistol levelled at his head (to quote Sir HENRY FOWLER) incontinently succumbed. Are we going to have the Revolt" repeated? That is what will inevitably happen if things are allowed to go on drifting much 16nger. The present miser- able Government is already tottering. It stands, not because it is strong, but because no one wants it at present to fall. There is just now no possible alternative Govern- ment. Indeed, if anything happened to 0 Lord SALISBURY, it is difficult to see who could take his place—even on the Unionist side. On the Liberal side things are still 1-1 A _1' N. 7_ more iiiggieuy-piggieay. oir YVIJLLIAM IIAK- COURT cannot be brought to meet Lord ROSEBERY. Mr ASQUITH during this Session has openly taken up the Leadership of the Liberal Imperialists," and has flouted the authority of Sir HENRY CAMPBELL-BANNER- MAN on more than one occasion. Mr BUTCE, who is the sanest as well .r;s the most scholarly man on the Front Opposi '<• Bench, agrees with Mr JOHN MORLEY n l denouncing the views of Sir HENRY FOWLER and Sir EDWARD GREY. Even the lawyers are divided Sir ROBERT REID, Mr T. SHAW (the ex-Solicitor-General for Scotland), Sergeant HEMPHILL, Mr ATHERLEY JONES, Mr BRYN ROBERTS, and Mr S. T. EVANS are J pronounced pro-Boers. Mr ROBSON, Mr URE, Mr ELLIS GRIFFITH, Mr BRYNMOR JONES, and Mr HALDANE follow the lead of the" Imperial Perks." Quot homines, tot sententiae. Out of such a motley crew it is impossible to form a Government. I ques- tion whether, even in a year or two, BANNERMAN would be able to form a Ministry. HARCOURT is now 73, and every year lessens his chance. JOHN MORLEY is, in my opinion, the greatest moral and intellectual force in politics. He will always be a tower of strength to his side but he will never form a Government. FOWLER we may dismiss with easy contempt; he is too Tory even for the present-day Liberals. GREY is a wise young man, who never said a foolish thing, and never thought a great oi-le." ASQUITH is a different class of man. He is a man of tremendous intellectual power, and one of the most remorseless debaters in the House. A few years ago everything seemed to point him out as the future Leader. He is, I believe, a genuine Liberal, and lie will always be one of the most notable figures in Parliament. But he lacks passion, enthusiasm, magnetism-all that we have learned to associate with the personality of a great Liberal leader. The one man that remains is ROSEBERY, whose career and character are alike fascinating, O and whose personality is both attractive and powerful. When the Government falls, I think the KING will send for Lord ROSEBERY, and it is with him, therefore, that Wales will have to deal, What she has to expect has been plainly outlined in his speech to the Welsh members. What then should be done ? Are we to allow things to drift till Lord ROSEBERY takes office?. Are we then to expect the Welsh members to "revolt" as they—or some of them-did seven years ago ? I am all for "revolting," if there is nothing else, for it; but a revolt is bad policy, unless, it be inevitable.. But I hold that a rEvolt is no more inevitable in Parliament than a war in South Africa. What is wanted is a clear and. definite policy. Unfortunately, the Welsh Parliamentary Party has become a j, ridiculous farce. It exsists only to dihe- and that it only does once a year. It hardly goes through the form of deliberating on any matter, and as far as any lead to the country is concerned, we might as well expect gem o enau llyflant." The Welsh National Council has indeed met, but it did not discuss the question af Disestablish- ment. It is essential that the Welsh members should make their position clear to the leaders of the Liberal party. Wales will not tolerate any juggling with her national demand. It is time LORD ROSEBERY should be made to understand that unless he is prepared to pledge himself to deal with Welsh Disestablishment, he can expect no support from Wales. If it were made clear to him now, he would be able to steer a different course. He would have constantly that fact in mind when gauging the chances of forming an Administrative. He could not charge the Welsh members with having misled him, and the most patriotic and determined of our representatives would not be driven to the invidious and unpleasant necessity of « revolting." All that is wanted is that we should make up our minds at once and act upon our resolution.
