Dr. Edwards then addressed the gathering, and expressed the pride he felt, as one who had taken a deep interest in the furtherance of educational facilities in Cardiff, in being asked to open that fine new school. In saying that Cardiff was second to.no town in the kingdom in the provision it had made for the educa- tion of the children, he was merely repeating what had been said by Mr. Mundella, M,I' and Sir John Gorst on the occasion of their ,i.it? to Cardiff.
