I PROFESSIONAL "CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTION." I "redo not know whether the latebt idea. which haa nhonin?ted the coum-?Is of the leaders of the pro-German moYemtut in thi? I country has a directly German origin, but- it certainly has marked German features. Our I readers arc aware that among the c-iasses of (single men of military age exempt from ser- vice under the Act which conies into opera- tion next mouth are the "conscientious ob- ic,ctom" For men to whom the description rightly applies even t.h062> who think their attitude mistaken have sincere respect. But the "person to whom we may allude as the "faggot" conscientious objector, on the analogy of "faggot" voters, is a portent which must, we think, have been designed in Berlin even it is to be fashioned in Britain. There are abundant indications in recent manifestos. and other imnouncemeuts of the principal pro- German organisation in England-which epeaks for the subordinate a.-twiation.s since all these bodies consist largely of the eame members grouped under different designations —that persons who have fcome histrionic ability and prefer a life of ease and self- advertisement to the fatigues of military drill and the risks of war are to bo gathered together in suitable biMr.ber in all the re- cruiting di-tricis in the kingdom and edu- cated in the delicate art of professional "con- fjcientious objection." They will then appear before the local tribunal and we may assume, since these pupils are not likely to ✓ offer their services without remuneration, and since all the pro-Germain associations are sup- plied with ample funde, whether they do or not profess to seek and find their members among tho working-class, that the earnings of the artist in conscientious scruple will be settled on a system of "payment by results." If he can suceced in obtaining from the local tribunal a colourable halo ad a "martyr," if he can manage iso to work matters when he attempts to entrap the civilians who hear his deftly fabricated c-aeo that ho can be cited by the expectant pro-German prompters as an instance of "victimisation," he will pro- bably find that his solatium from the right quarter is substantial. We quote the following extracts from the current issue of the leading pro-German jour- nal publjfeh-ed in these islands. "The Act must be repealed.. 1 The driving f-orce of a repeal agitation will be the anomalies and injustice that must arise in the course of the administration of such a law. We can intensify that force. "Every tribunal in the country must be watched. The work must consist in providing advisers for those who ap- pear, and in securing—particularly among women and men who will sacrifice their leisure—many persons to- watch day by day all cases before the tribunals. Their object must be to expose injustice and lack of uniformity in treatment of different appli- cants. Reports of all these 'watchers' must be collected and co-ordinated in every district, mid persons must be ready to tako tho results and use them in every possible way for local and national agitation. All grave cas-cs must be reported to the central office, so that they may secure national attention, and thus our agitation against the Act be intensified and made irresistible." The italics appear in the original, and we need not dwelL on their significance. The genuine conscientious dbjector would refuse to knd himself to theatrical display for a political purpose. The "victims" who will be paraded through the local recruiting tri- bunals and the COUTTS of appeal will be per- sons of adapta?c conscience. German and I pro-German intrigue is often clumsily con- ducted, but in this matter the promoters of the manoeuvre are not likely to advertise openly for "martyrs." Manifestly the "ncd and wink must suffice. We can all imagine the uso which will be made in Parliament and throughout the whole fcphero of pro- German operations of these "victims" whose stock-in-trade- will be rehearsed moral suffer- ing with a material silver lining behind it. We are glad of an opportunity to put the members of recruiting tribunals in this dis- trict on guard against imposture devised to waste their time and bring them into wholly unmerited disrepute.
FINANCE IN THE NEW SESSION. it is oc-rtam that the Session of Parlia- ment which opened this week will be largely occupied 'by the financiial exigencies of the war. The taxpayer is ready to shoulder his additional burdtn with cheery resolution and a good courage in proof of the fact that Britain's jiuit pride in her staying-power will not fail through want- of mettle—we intend no pun—in him. But there are reasons prompted by judicious Exchequer policy which render it unlitkely tha.t the full extent of the taxpayer's new liabilities will be dis- closed in the immediate future. There is much routine financial business to bo tran- sacted before the end of the financial year on March 31st, and Parliament must clear the way for further money-raising operations, whether by loan or taxation, by passing a vote of credit, which will no doubt plate the continuance of the war till the end of the extended term now allotted to the existence of the present Parliament. The Government is not yet in a position to mea- sure the success of the scheme formulated by the Montagu Committee as an appeal to the small investor for t'he loan of his saving s to the nation and the provisions of the next Budget are likely to be shaped in some de- gree at least by the extent of the small in- vestor's practical response. The taxpayer cannot be reminded too often that the more he lends at interest to the State the less lie will have to pay to the tax-collector and vice versa. And whereas by subscribing to the national war loans he will preserve his capital and receive a very satisfactory rate of interest upon if. while it is lent for the State's use, by hoarding his saving's infruc- tuously now he is forming a reserve for the tax-gatherer who does not borrow but takes. The next Vote of Credit will supply a very important occasion for Parliamentary discus- sion of the progress of the war on the basis of the Government's state-mcnit, and the view then giveai of our prospects is likely to be a matter concerning the- taxpayer quite as closely as the details of the- means next to be employed to meet our vast liabilities in the oncoming pha-e of the war.
EDITORIAL NOTES. The Gwynedd Battalion. Brigadier-General Owen Thomas and Colonel Lloyd Evans, who commands the Gwynedd Bat- talion of the Royal Welsh Fuiliers, have lost no time in dispelling the mistake: notions which im- pelled the LIeyn Rural Counc il, at, a recent meet- ing, to make complaint that English-speaking officers were appointed to this distinctively Welsh battalion. It is difficult to trace the origin of such mischievous reports, but it will be easily realised that unless at once contradicted they are like!y to discourage many Welsh recruits who are recommended to join the Gwynedd Battalion in order to be amongst their own fellow-countrymen. In his communication to the LleYIl Council, this week, General Owen Thomas points out that there is not a shadow of truth in the statements which formed the subject of the Council's complaint. We feel sure that the confidence of the public in Colonel Lloyd Evans is too firmly established to be shaken by mere idle reports of anomalies which exist only in the imagination of irresponsible per- 601 is. Cockery Lessons for lIoys. The Carnarvonshire Education Committee are to be congratulated 011 their decision to provide classes for training Llandudno boys as cooks. The Board of Education have declined to give a grant for this form of instruction, but the committee have agreed to authorise Llandudno School managers to engage a teacher who will give lessons for two hours a week, and to make a strong representation to the Board on the question of grants. As the cost is only 7s weekly it will not be a very serious matter if the grants are not forthcoming. It is stated that about 120 foreign chefs and waiters are imported to Llandudno hotels and boarding houses each summer, and that they earn anything from JE4 to S7 a week. This money might well be going to the pockets of Llandudno men, and the committee are doing the right thing to encourage its diversion there from the pockets of possible alien spies. Health of Munition Workers. An important report on Hours of Work" just issued by the Health of Munition Workerx* Committee concludes with a paragraph of special interest to North Wales health and holiday re- srrts. It reads: "The ccmmittee consider it most important that the ordinary factory holidays should not be interf ered with. They afford a definite break in a long period of strain, and a favourable opportunity for recuperation. This opportunity could be used to fuller advantage if adequate travelling accommodation and railway. facilities were provided for conveying large num- bers of workers to convenient health resorts and holiday centres. In all probability this sugges- tion will be acted upon by the Ministry of Munitions; at all events most people would like to ee-e it acted upon. It will be interesting to watch developments over the "railway facilities" recommendation, having regard to the futility of the representations recently made on that score by local authorities. Sir Henry Lewis and Army Reform. Sir Henry Lewis, in a letter to the Frees, urges reforms in certain directions in the Welsh Army. He says it is reported that "some of the principal and non-commissioned officers exercise their brief authority in an arbitrary manner. Some, it is said, know less about their work than the Territorial officers who are placed under them. Some are thirsty and lead young officers to slippery places. Some use language which is as gall and wormwood to young Welshmen who are unaccustomed to that dialects Some fail to conceal their proud contempt for Welshmen." All these things are "reported to be, but, Sir Henry adds, "Let me state at once that these complaints apply to a comparatively few of those who are responsible. But it is impossible for civilians like myself to refrain from protesting against the abuse of power, the vanity, and the temper of some of those in authority when we see around us so many who suffer and deny themselves uncomplainingly in order to contribute in men and money to the defence of the country." Another Protest. The Calvinistio Methodists of the Valo of Con- way, at their monthly meeting, also discussed this week a phase of Army reform to which Sir Henry Lewis likewise alludes. They have passed a resolution protesting against what was stated to be "almost a general practice" .among Army officers of swearing at their men. As will be seen from our report of the meeting, strong al-" legations were made and instances were cited of the use of language more forcible than elegant. A writer in this week's Welsh Coast Pioneer asserts that "a refined, well-educated young offic- er found the language and conduct of fellow officers in mess and elsewhere so objectionable that he rented a sitting-room out of camp, where he might spend hie leisure hours beyond reach of their voices." As Sir Henry Lewis remarks, these things arc not characteristic of the Welsh Army as a whole.

THE USE OF SLATES IN SCHOOLS. IMPORTANT FACTOR IN EDUCATIONAL I ECONOMY. The question of returning to the use of elates in schools is being considered by several educa- tion committees. It is perhaps not generally realised that in the majority of schools slates have been banished even from the i'niant de- partments, and during the last 15 years practical- ly all the written work of pupils from the age ot five .ycar has been done oil paper, enormous quantities of stationery, ink, pens, and black- leads being consumed ii-i the proce". Slates were originally excluded from sc hools on hygienic grounds, the contention of medical offic- ers being that the use of slates tended to en- courage the spiead of epidemic diseases, though, as a matter of fact, the introduction of paper m substitution appears to have had no influence in retarding the prevalence of such sickncss. From the educational point of view many teachers have regretted the disuse of slates, especially among the younger pupils. Slates can be ueed with con- siderable economy of time, since there is no necessity for preparing pens, inks, and rulers, while the marking of exeercises is a far simpler process than when they are done on paper. The reintroduetion of slates would have some influ- ence in reviving the home slate-quarrying ;11- dustry.
I I SLATE TRADE REVIVAL. I FORTHCOMING CONFERENCE AT PORTMADOC. Fortmtvdoc Urban Council has dec;ded !o convene a conference at. Port ma doc on March 17th of representatives of the county, town, and rural councils representative ot quarry employers and employees and the Parliamen- tary members of the quarry dis-tricts in North Wales to consider what fcteps to take to re- vive the North Wales slate trade, and thus re- lieve the acute distress prevailing in com- munities dejiendant on the industry, which has been in a state of atngnat-ion for ten years. It is felt that the Government depirtni-enta have not dealt equitably with the Welsh quar- ries in placing orders for rooling material for Government buildings.
DO NOT USE MOTOR CARS FOR PLEASURE. The National Organising Committee for War Saving s issued a protect lust night through the Press Bureau against the use of motor cars and motor cycles for pleasure, and says if this form of extravagance were stopped millions of money- would be saved and much work could be trans- ferred to more useful channels. ♦
[THE GWYNEDD BATTALION I ALLEGED DRAFTING OF WELSHMEN TO U N' I T S OTHER UNITS. I (From Our Reporter ) At a meeting of the Lleyn Rural Cour.cil. held a.t Pwllheli, Brigadier-General Owen Thomas, through his private secretary, wrote stating that all units must join the battalions decided upon by the War Office. The General regretted this very much. As regard the Gwynedd Battalion all the officers spoke Welsh, the commander being Colonel Lloya Evans. This ought to be published well abroad. Mr R. O. Roberts said that young Welshmen in that district ought to be allowed to join the Gwynedd Battalion, and not be drafted to Eng- lish or any other battalion. The Clerk: That is what the letter means to convey. But at. present there is no certainty that the Welsh Units will be sent to join the Gwynedd Battalion. All intending recruits should stipulate that they want to join the Gwyn. edd Battalion. Mr Richard Jones: A young man from Nevin enlisted, and then found that he would be attached to an English Battalion. He wrote home in a very despondent tone. Mr R. O. Roberts: I should much rather our men join an English battalion to joining a Glamorganshire one. It would be more difficult to understand the Welsh spoken in the Glamor- ganshire battalion than the English in an English battalion. Captain Stanley Davief, Supervisory Recruiting Officer for the County, wrote stating that mora recruiting opportunities and better facilities would be available now in Lleyn, though it was a most difficult district to work. A recruiting officer had been in Sarn for three weeks, but had only succeeded in getting two recruits. An officer would also be stationed at Nevin. Rev. T. E. Owen asked where the men were to be finally tested. The Clerk said that it would be at Wrexham. Mr Owen condemned such a system. A man would have to go all the way from Aberdaron to Wrexham before his case was finally tested. Mr R. O. Roberts: It is oliiv another instance of the shocking waste of public money practised by the War Office. Why not save money by attesting at Bangor? The Cletk said that taking all the country generally it would not be a saving to take men to Bangor. The Army authorities knew best what to do. We quote the following from the Manchester Guardian, some of the statements in which are more emphatic than in our own reporter's account of the meeting:- At the LJeyn Rural Council Brigadier-General Owen Thomas, in reply to the Council's com- plaint that English-speaking officers were ap- pointed to the Gwynedd Battalion contrary to the spirit of its formation, wrote that he much re- sented the spreading of reports of that natuie about the country at present. There was not a shadow of truth in thenl. Not a single English officer had been appointed to the battalion. Colonel Lloyd Evans, the commanding officer, was a thorough Welshman, and the ten men who had been recommended for commissions in the battalion were all Wclsh-epeaking Welshmen from the Principalitv. COLONEL LLOYD EVANS' LETTER TO MAYOR OF PWLLHELI. The Mayor of Pwllheli has received a letter from Colonel Lloyd Evans, the commander of the Gwynedd Battalion, saying that he had done his best to get Welshmen into his battalion. There was ground for the comptaints that men were being sent to other battalions, but he hoped that all the complaints would be removed in future, It would delight him to see ah Puiiheh and otJ¡e local men in fll is battauon.
WELSH APPOINTMENTS BOARD. Sir Herbert- Roberts, M.P., ;<! ( > I. over the annual meeting of the Welsh Appointments Hoard yesterday in London. Others present were Lord Kenyon, Sir John Prichard-Jones, Sir E. Vincent Evans, Colonel Pryce-Jones, M.P., Sir Harry Reichel, Mrs Mary fravies, Mr. W. N. Bruce, and Mr E. T. John, M.P. The report submitted by Mr Silyn Ho- berts (secretary) stated that during the first year the war interfered very considerably with the normal activities of the Board, and all their energies were put at the disposal of the various authorities directly responsible for the piosei utioi) of the war. At the outbreak 01 the war scores of graduates alld undergraduates from the Welsh colleges enlisted, some joining Welsh and other:; English units. Those v.ho joined the Welsh units were much better ofl", as most of those who had joined the Royal Fusiliers were to-day fighting in the trenches as privates, and yet most of them had been offered commissions in Welsh formations more than once, but had been prevent.ed from taking them by the refusal of their commanding officers to gi\e them their discharge. Having alluded to the assistance the Board hacT been able to render in connection with the manufacture of munitions, and mentioning that many of the engineering students at the Welsh colleges were taken into munition factories the report, stated that the Board had supplied many explosive fadories with experts.
