m, Norfolk, having failed to the proper time, the county 0 the deadlock by conferring lOwers and duties of a parish N CONGREGATIONAL CON- FERENCES at WELSHPOOL. A meeting of delegates of the Montgomeryshire Con- gregational Churches was held at Weishpool on Thurs- day. Mr O. R. Jones, Llanfyllin. presided in the absence of the President of the Union, Mr Ellis Roberts, of Llanfyllin. At the morning meeting a discussion took place on the question of localising a magazine for the county, and in the afternoon the meeting was devoted to the consideration of establishing a Sunday School Union. In the evening a public meeting was held in the Chapel, presided over by Mr Robert Thompson, who was sup- ported by the Rev E. M. Edmunds, Rev T. Powell Williams, Rev T. Bowson, and Mr D. Hamer. There was a fairly good attendance, The meeting opened with singing of a hymn, after which the Rev T. Rowson read a portion of scripture and prayed. The CHAIRMAN extended a hearty welcome to the ministers and delegates who had met there that day for the transaction of the business of the Union. They had met there that evening to discuss one of the most im- portant subjects connected with the Christian Church, namely, the religious training of the young and Sunday School work. It was a question in which they were all very much interested. Some of those present could boast of a record of 10, 20, or 30 years' experience as school teachers, and during that time some hundreds of scholars must have passed through their hands. But where had they passed ? He feared that a great number had passed into the world and not into the Church, which showed t at the truths they had endeavoured to instil into their minds had bee ) unavailing. They might well pause and inquire the cause. The subject of a Sunday School Union was to be brought before them, and, like the Llanfair Railway, was a thing they required. If a Union could be started that night it would give them greater power (cheers). Rev E. M. EDMUNDS said they lived in the age of forward movement, and when they remembered that there were six millions of children in the Sunday Sohools of the United Kingdom he ventured to say there was no forward movement in any branch of Christian work that would prove so beneficial as one in connection with Sunday School work. There had been a great awakening in the Churches in regard to the training of the young. This awakening had not come an hour to soon. He never liked to assume the role of a pessimist, but one could not be blind to the fact that the greatness of their country was being threatened, not by outside enemies, but by its inward foes. There was a tendency in every age to over estimate its own importance, but he did not think they would consider him guilty of over estimating the importance of the age when he said that never since the establishment of Christianity had any age possessed such claims on the earnestness and enthusiastic interest of the Christian Church, and yet her part would be pro- ductive of bad results. It was bound to leave a deeper impression upon society either for good or evil. This was not a time for the Christian Church to be indifferent to the claims of the children. They were told to train the children up in the way they should go, and upon the salvation of the children depended the salvation of the nation. The strength and stability of a nation depended not upon its wealth and commerce, not its army and navy, but upon the character of the people, and it was for this purpose that Christ established His Church upon earth. This should be the test in connection with every Church-not the size of the congregation or the length of membership, but of the kind of character; if the people who attended the services became better men and women, and the children taught in the Sunday School and Band of Hope grew up in the way they should go. It was by virtue of such character that the Church was the salt of the earth, to purify civilization Fo as to make religion a blessing instead of a curse. However wide civilization might extend its influence it would never attain perman- ence unless grounded on the principles of Christ. This was the special function of the Church of the present day through its Sunday School. The Sunday School was really the Church in its teaching capacity, to teach the rising generation how to apply the principles taught by Christ to daily life. The Christian Church was the moral university of the world, to teach its rulers to live spiritually and religiously. The greatest enemy to Christianity was its professed frit:nds, people who took the Bible as their guiding star, who never tried to teach the Bible to the children or to show any interest in the Sunday School work. It was really appalling to think of the grave ignorance in which the young people grew up. The 1 hief Constable of Denbighshire, in a lecture not long ago on the result of crime and criminals, stated that the best criminals were those who had been best educated -educated from a secular point of view. It was appal- ling to think what would be the result of secular educa- tion. He was afraid it would be giving the children more power to do harm unless they instilled into their minds the principles which they were to follow. Still they could not expect the blind to lead the blind. The more he thought the more he felt what a splendid instru- ment the Church was for the evangelisation of the whole nation. It was stated at a Sunday School Conference that only one out of the ten taught in the Sunday School ever became Church members. He could not help asking what had become of the nine ? What a great thing it would be if every Sunday School teacher made it their one aim to lead their scholars to Christ, and considered their work unfinished until they bad accomplished that aim. In the ordinary affairs of life they were not satis- fied to leave their duties unfinished. What was worth beginning was worth completing, and Sunday School work was worth doing and doing well. It was tho duty of every Sunday School teacher to realise the transcendent importance of the work upon which he was engaged, and ho should not be satisfied until he had finished the good work he had undertaken so that the scholars might be placed as an adornment to the temple of which Christ was the chief corner stone (cheers). Rev THOMAS JONES, Berriew, asked whether the game was worth the candle. Looking at it from one point of view it was not, but from another it was. Taking the first view, they said that the attention given to the children would not pay them directly for their labours. They were educating the next generation, and they would not receive the benefit. But taking the larger view, they certainly received handsome returns for their work. He was afraid they were apt to treat the Bible too much as the Book of God, and forget that it was the Book of man as well. They should train the children from the Church, and not to do the devil's work. They should try to get them to be Church members. The children now received a course of training in the Sunday School, but they drifted out into the world. It was their duty to see that they did not drift into the world, but become members of the Church. They should ask the children if they had an inclination to join the Church, and if so receive them. They should not catechise them severely. A child on entering a day school did nothing to pass a hard examina- tion until it had gone through a certain course of training. Therefore they could not expect too much from a child. They should study the psychological nature of the I children. He never stood before children without a care- ful preparation, because he knew they would believe what he said. Children took it all in and acted upon it. They had confidence. Therefore let them not betray the confidence and faith the children reposed in them (cheers). Mr DAVID HAMER, Newtown, said they had been the pioneers of religion for the last 300 years. Some Congregationalists had been the fathers of that glorious Republic the other side the Atlantic, and to them they owed the first principle of religious and civil liberty as founded in that nation. He noticed that the Vicar of Welshpool had been speaking the previous week upon Church reform. They had been Church reformers for 300 years, therefore the Vicar of Welshpool was 300 years behind the time. It was often thrown into their teeth that they were a denomination founded in the 15th century, but they could trace their descent back to the Sermon on the Mount. For the last 300 years they had upheld certain principles, which they upheld to-day--Independ- ency. What did Independency mean r It meant that they were independent of State control. They did not allow the State to control them in any way. They bad no king but Jesus. They would not allow any Driest, bishop, cardinal, or pope to have any dominion over them, and they permitted no presbytery to control them. Every individual Church was a complete Church in itself. They upheld these principles before the whole world. Religion was a principle of life, which must be carried on and borne out in every day life. These principles they had to teach to their young. They should not believe the state- ments continually dinned in their ears that they were indifferent. That was not so, they were rather the pioneers of religion.. What was the state of things during the past century, and how were the children brought up then, and how was the Sabbath observed? Every parish had its games on the Sabbath day, and there was no peace to conduct the services in the Church. They found that as soon as the Church service was over the Clerk would rush out first, and standing upon a stone would proclaim the events of the week, the sales, fairs, games, and wakes (laughter). Their forefathers protested against that, and came out from the Church of Eugland and built their own place of worship, and they existed in contra-distinction to the Church of England. They must therefore instil into the minds of the young those princi- ples which their forefathers established. This could be done by spiritual men alone, and he trusted they would do in the future what they had done in the past (cheers) Rev T. POWELL WILLIAMS also spoke. On the motion of Mr W. JONES, seconded by Mr R. POWELL, a hearty vote of thanks was accorded the Chairman, and the ministers, and delegates. The meet- ing concluded with the singing of a hymn. During the meeting the choir, conducted by Mr Maurice Jehu, J.P., rendered several hymns.
LLANDINAM. SUDDEN DEATH.—A fearfully sudden death occurred on Monday. Mr Edward Savage, rural postman, had gone his round as usual that morning, and called on persons in the village on his return. He did not complain of illness to anyone, and walked to his lodgings at Upper Ffinnant about 11 o'clock, where he had breakfast. He then said he did not feel very well. Mrs Price told him he had better lie down a little, but he went out in the garden, and soon re- turned. Mrs Price asked him if he felt better. Oh, no," he said, take hold of me or I shall fall." She ran towards him, and just got hold of him when z, he fell on his back. She called her son to her aid, and got Savage in the kitchen, where he drew three or four breaths and then expired. The deceased had been a shop-keeper in the village for many years, and also farmed the Walkmill farm near the village. For some years he drove the royal mail cart from Caersws to Llanidloes, and up to the day of his death he was a postman in the district. There was no inquest, as Dr Snow had been attending him, and gave as his opinion that he died from failure of the heart's action. The deceased was 66 years of age. The funeral took place on Thursday. A GRAND CONCERT was given in the Board School, on Wednesday evening, in aid of reducing the debt on the Wesleyan Chapel. There was a very large attendance, all the gentry of the neighbourhood being present. The Rev D. D. Davies, superintendent minister of Llanidloes, occupied the chair in the un- avoidable absence of Mr E. Davies, of Plas Dinam. The programme commenced with a quartet, I Oh, hush thee, my baby,' Misses Morgan and Hughes, and Messrs Jenkins and Davies solo,' Comfort ye my people,' Mr Edward Jones, of Hopbrook; song, The valley of snowdrops,' Miss Morgan song, Oh that summer smil'd for aye,' Mr D. Davies, and was loudly encored song, The three fishers,' Miss B laker. This was most beautifully rendered, and was encored. Duet, Fair Wales,' Messrs Jones and Lewis; solo, < Oh, rest in the Lord,' Miss E. Hughes; duet, The Army and Navy,' Messrs Davies and Jenkins. This brought down the house, and The larboard watch' was given in response to the protracted calls. Song, Llewelyn's valley,' Mr E. B. Jenkins (encored) song, 'The Swanee river,' Miss M. A. Hamer; violin soly, 'Tarantella,' Miss G. E. Davies. This was loudly encored, and continued until Miss Davies kindly complied, when she gave Italienische romanze,' and was again encored. Song, The land of the harp,' Mr D. Davies song,' Flee as a bird,' Miss E. Hughes. This was most beautifully sang, every word distinct, and was loudly encored. Trio, God be merciful,' Miss Morgan, Messrs Jenkins and Davies; song, Nancy Lee,' Mr Lewis (loudly encored, and in response gave the 'Longshoreman'); song,' The lost chord,' Miss P. Morgan song,' The wishing cap.' Miss M. A. Hamer (encored, and repeated last verse) duet, Flow gently, Deva,' Messrs Davies and Jenkins; song, 'Loch Lomond,' Miss Blaker (encored, but not complied with). The Chairman thanked the audience for their kind help, and pro- posed a vote of thanks to those who assisted in helping to make it a success. In particular he wished to thank Miss G. E. Davies and Miss Blaker for their kind help, and also the singers who came from Llan- idloes, and to Miss Jones, of Gorn View, who so ably accompanied on the piano. This was seconded by Mr George Waite, who thought that in another year, with the help of concerts, the chapel would be free of debt, which statement was received with cheers. The last piece on the programme was the quartet, 'Profundo basso,' by the Quartet party, but the aneore was so prolonged that they had to sing it ] •gain. )
KERRY. AN IMPORTANT DEBATE took place in the Reading Room on Tuesday, in connection with the Mutual Improvement Association. The subject for debate being of interest, it had been decided to invite the public. There was a large attendance of farmers and villagers, the fair sex being well represented. After some preliminary business had been con- cluded, Mr T. Jones, Brynllywarch, (chairman), requested Mr Proudfoot to read his paper, which advocated the holding Kerry Ewe Fair upon a field. The essayist had carefully prepared his paper, which pictured Kerry as having its village green, light railway, and being a summer tourist resort. Mr Proudfoot was supported by the Rev. O. A. Nares, Mr D. Humphreys, and Mr Lewis Owen. Mr J. Edward Venablee read a paper in favour of the fair being held on the street as usual. His remarks were at times amusing, and were received with applause. He was ably supported by Messrs T. Jones, Gilfach, William Chandler, junr., David Owens, J. Fred Evans, William Joseph, T. Alderson, R. Pryce, Man- Uwyn, J. Bowen, G. Pryce, and others. Upon the vote being taken, there was an overwhelming majority in favour of the fair being held on the street. The result was greeted with loud applause.
FOOTBALL. WELSHPOOL.—A friendly match was played at Welsh- pool on Thursday between Welshpool Reserve and Newtown Half-holiday. The visitors scored about ten minutes from the start, and in spite of some good work by Parry and Addie they were leading at the interval by two goals to nothing. Welshpool scored soon after resuming, but Newtown added a splendid goal, and won by three goals to one. WELLINGTON TOWN V. WELSHPOOL.—In the second round of the Welsh Cup, Welshpool played Wellington at Wellington on Saturday last. The first half of tho game was characterized by even play, neither team gaining a point. In the second portion of the game two penalties fell to the lot of the homesters, one of them being success- ful. The strangers however were in capital form, and. soon equalised, and before the whistle sounded the leather was again landed into the net. Welshpool returning home victorious by two goals to one.

NEWTOWN v. ABERYSTWYTH. These teams met at Xewtown on Saturday to playa return Loaguefixture. Playing with tho wind in the first halt" with only ten men the visitors showed good forill with the ball, and were frequently in tho home half. Edwards sln-ed very cleverly on two occasions. Nock and Parry mado a magnificent ran on the left. Parry shot hard, and Rooso san d very eloeerly. The hall travelled from end to end very rapidly, but the wind prevented good football. A good Opening was <rivvn the home twini from 26 foul closo in, and although Tucker placed it beautifully in the goal month it was forced the wroiiff side of tho post. J. F. Jones 011 the riprht wins made one or two good ruus, bnt his centres were but poorly talwn. At last a corner was given the home team, from which Miller scored. This was the only point scored in the first half. Immediately after resuming Swetenham had the hardest of hard lines in not adding another to the home score, his shot glancing along the bar. E. Davies very smartly con- verted a corner into the second goal, and a few minutes later Miller put through number three a beautiful centre by Nook. The play was now confined exclusively to the visitors* half, and every effort on their part to cross the half way line was checked by the Newtown halves. Just before the call of time Swetenham srot possession, and made one of his dashing runs. He was tacklod by W R. but with a neat pass he put tuo ball in front of Nock, who banged it into the net. In the concluding stages thn visitors made one or two runs, but every effort proved futile, and the home team left the ground winners by four goals to none.

Twyford (proaiding), the Rev J. Sawer, Messrs W. Rogers, Lang- ford, Edwards, T. Owen, R. Davies, Hughes, and W. Oldfield, with Mr C. S. Pryce (clerk), the Master, and Relieving Officers. It was stated that an inmate named Richard Cheese, was entitled to 2s 6d per week from the Churohstoke Club, but the Clerk said the rule of the Club was not to pay a member who was in the work- house. Cheese stated that if he left the workhouse he would only receive Is lid weekly as 7d would be retained for Subscription. Mr Edwards suggested that the Union should allow him an additional pension of Is 3d per week, but Cheese said he could not live on this in tha winter, and it was agreed that he should remain in the house where the chairman said he appeared to be happy. SHEHWSBUKT CORN MARKET.—Messrs W. L. Browne and Co. report Wheat has recovered the decline which took place in the early part of the week, but Barley has not improved in value.

LIBERALISM IN THE BOROUGHS.! MEETING OF THE NEWTOWN ASSOCIATION. ADOPTION OF RULES AND ELECTION OF DELEGATES. A. meeting of the Newtown Liberal Association was hiltd on Thursday evening at the Victoria Hall, to adopt the rules of the new Boroughs' Liberal Association and to elect delegates to the Council. Rev T. E. Williams waa elected to the chair. In reply to Mr J. C. Gittins, Mr GRINDLEY (secre- tary) explained that the rules of the new Boroughs' Association were drawn up by a committee representing the various boroughs. They were submitted to the Borough Associations, and subsequently to a meeting of the Borough delegates, who had adopted them subject to adoption by the various local Associations. Mr R. WILLIAMS said it would be very inconvenient if the rules were now altered, because the alterations would have to be submitted to the other Boroughs for approval. Still, if there was anything of vital importance tha Association might take the liberty of altering the rule^. The CHAIRMAN said it shoullbe understood that that meflting was competent to make any alterations it thought proper. It was in a manner an ultimate court of appeal. At the same time the rules had been very fully and carefully considered. Mr A; FORD asked what course would be taken with regard to the appointment of a president of the Associa- tion? Mr GRINDLEY said the first meeting of the Council of the new Association would be held in the Congrega- te ofti I Schoolroom. The business was to consider any amendments to the rnles .of the Association, to elect President, Vice-Presidents, Treasurer, Secretary, etc., and to take steps to select a candidate. At present there we4e no .officers. A temporary committee had been ap- pointed to make arrangements for the first meeting. Mr JOHN HUGHES moved the adoption of the rules.. Air A. FORD asked whether it was open to them to propose soma method with regard to the appointment of President, as a kind of suggestion to the gentlemen who wora to meet the following week. The CHAIRMAN said the meeting had full power to do what it though proper in the way of instructing its delegates. Mr FOBD said he was very anxious, in as much as they wate inaugurating a new system of procedure, that they ,,p inau,- shoftlld adopt one which was likely to interest not only themselves but every other borough in the success of this now venture. He was anxious that the annual meetings shqiald be hehlalternately in the various Boroughs, and tha.t in order to give each borough a particular interest in-Miit would take place during the year, it should be an instruction .to the Council to appoint the President from th borough in which the annual meoting took place. He. thought this would be a means of making the annual mooting a greater success. He did uot anticipate that all the public meetings would be held in Newtown. This woW-d create jealousy. The meetings should be held in the various boroughs alternately. Mr R. WILLIAMS said the very question raised by Mr F had been very fully discussed by the Committee. It was proposed that the annual meetings be held at Nowtown and Welshpool alternately, and another pro- posal was that the meetings be held alternately in all the botocghs. But some members objected, even on behalf of thei<* own boroughs. It was thought, for instance, thirt it would not be wise to hold the meeting at Mont- goppjry ^or various reasons, and eventually it was agreed to-leave the matter to the Executive Committee. The HAIRMAN said the rule bearing upon the point was as follows The annual meeting of the Council ob,tt be held in the month of February or at such time as the. E xeeutive Committee shall determine. Other meetings øtnr.U be called, when and where deemed necessary by the Executive Committee. Mr R. WILLIAMS seconded the motion to adopt the ruled- He attended the meetings of the local Committee whi.t.4 drew them up, and took part in the discussion. All points raised were very thoroughly considered, and for: purpose3 of guidance rules were obtained from a large nettiber of associations throughout the Kingdom. Mr JOHN HUMPHREYS asked what would be their position if other boroughs sent in amendments to the rotee. The CHAIRMAN said any amendments would come before the Council next Thursday, and this meeting could gr&S the delegates power to deal with them or not, as they tflKlght proper. The motion to adopt the rules was carried unanimously. Tie next business was the appointment of delegates. Mr GRINDLEY explained that the number of delegates to- be elected was 2.1. This number had been decided opga as a kind of compromise. The members of the Cmamittee had felt that one or two delegates per hundred voters would be sufficient. The National Liberal Federation wished them to adopt five or at any rate three FChD nured. As a compromise they agreed to two per flunili'ed voters, but as a concession to the smaller boroughs they agreed to give five representatives for the firafc hundred. There was a feeling that Newtown and Welshpool completely swamped the other boroughs, and the arrangement made helped to give the smaller boroughs & larger proportion of votes, and tended to do away with anjriealousy that might exist amongst them. Aiarge number of delegates were then nominated, and the-election was by ballott. Mr RICHARD LLOYD having been nominated, di-oiined to serve, stating that he strongly disapproved of K-ij nil-ate organisation until the Boroughs had done their duty with regard to the joint Association. He did not object to separate organisation when the proper time came, but he considered that the proper time had not come. Thev were only going to involve themselves in moi £ expenditure before they had fulfilled their obliga- tions to the joint Association. That was the only reason why he felt he could not serve the new Associa- HoSf and must continue to take part with the County Association. T^e following delegates were elected: -Revs T. E. INgBams and Edward Parry, Dr. Palmer, Messrs Alfred S&fL R. Williams. John Hughes, Edward Jones, J. C. OdEns, W. P. Phillips, C. I. Newell, Martin Woo. nam, BUgh Lewis, ,W. R. Grindley. John Humphreys, John Gi^en, George Swain, D. Lewis, T. Edmunds, Cecil Tspor, David Hamer, J. T. C. Gittins. T. Rees, E. Lepras, R. Jones, and A. Wallace. Mr GRINDLEY announced that subscriptions piMjlsed to the new Association would be collected adfet Christmas. Mr Morton. M.P., as they would have in the Montgomeryshire Express' would, besides sptsa&ing at the public meeting next Thursday evening, a<fifre.ss the Delegates' meeting in the afternoon, and a few; tickets would be at the disposal of visitors who wished to attend. Mr T. E.Ellis, M.P., who had been invis&d, was unable to come, but they expected to have anc. important letter from him. They had also com- nranfcated with Captain Pryce who had sent them a very nicfitftftter regretting that he could not be present. They houdd at some future meeting to have Captain Pryce with thein (applause). Mr G. R. Thorne, who was candidate at tjie General Election for one of the divisions of Woi^ehampton, and who was described by those who had beam him as one of the best platform speakers in the Midlands, had promised to address a meeting of the Noown Association, and in a letter which Mr Grindley read JV[r Thorne stated that if a convenient date could be arraa^d it would give him great pleasure to speak in a town, with which so many pleasant memories were con- nected (applause). The local Association had also arraajred with Rev E. Lloyd Jones, of Rhyl. to give them aapaWh on the day following his lecture to the Newtown Weeleyans. He did not think Mr Lloyd Jones needed any recommendation as a political speaker, however, aotnQ of them might differ from his theological opinions (laughter). He was one of the most rousing political speakers in Wales. Mr Grindley expressed the h,JPe' that there would be a verv full house to hear. Mr E. J. C. Morton, M.P., next Thursday oveuJng. He had no doubt that those who heard him soma little time ago would take care to attend themselves acd to. bring their friends with them. Mr Morton wa3 on of the best platform speakers in the party, and had been. secured for them by Mr T. E: Ellis, M.P. The ch.i would be taken by Mr Fairies-Humphreys, of Montgomery, and Mr Humphreys-Owen. M.P., would aJso «i>ea1c (applause).
