CANON THOMPSON ON SUNDAY I RADING. A public meeting in connection with the Cardiff Branch of the Christian Social Union was held on Monday evening 111 St. John's Schoolroom, when an address on the relations between the Church and Socialism was delivered by the Rev. C. L. Marson, M.A., vicar- designate of Hambridge. The chair was taken by the Rev. Canon Thompson, and there were also presenis the Revs. F. J. Beck, C. H. Empson, J. F. Summers, R. S. Plant, A. E. H. JJyslop, W. Jones, Ll. Crichton, and George Sinclair, Professor Richards, Dr. Ashley Bird (Penarth), Dr. Rhys Jones, Mr S. Hobson, aud a number of Fab sail Socialists. The CHAIRMAN", in his opening address, said the members of this Union were Socialists in the true sense of the word desiring to bring about the union of man with man, of brother with brother, of neighbour with neighbour. At their very doors numerous questions were crying for the attention of all right-thinking people. In Cardiff, for instance, it was a shame that there should exist houses which ought not to be tenanted by human beings, much less by Christian people—(applause) -in which it was almost impossible for the first principles of morality, and therefore of health and wholesome living, to find anything like exercise or free play. It would be a credit to Cardiff when, either m itn corporate capacity or by the consciences of individuals oeuig aroused, these places were swept away. Cardiff, like many other towns, was possessed by large landowners, who were lords of the soil. What a magnificent power of blessing and benefit to his fellow creatures was the lord of the soil if he would only recognise the responsibility which attached to his property. It was a bounden obligation on the conscience of the individual landowner, and it ought to be an obligation on the governing body to see that such measures as those were carried out. (Applause.) Tiie man in receipt of a large income from ground rents ought to see that the toilers did not suffer in order that he might be rich. This Union further sought to make Sunday a day of entire recreation and rest the best sense, and to bring enlight- eneCl iiDerty to an wno profess to call themselves Christians. It was a pitiable sight to see nearly all the shops closed on Sundays save those that were the least wanted—the tobacconists. Why should they be open when tobacco could so easily be purchased on Saturday or Friday ? Why should the girls employed in those shops be deprived of their Sunday rest and spend the best hours of that day in the elo'-e immurement of the shop ? (Loud applause.) He saw no objection to the upelling- of public-houses in the middle of Sunday for an hour that men might get their dinner beer, but he spoke on the question of Sunday rest rather in the interest of those not alway" able to take care of themselves. (Ap- plause.) The RPV. C. L. MAKSON t)iu delivered a long and keenly reasoned lecture. At t ti(- close of the lecture a discussion followed, Mr A. C. Kirk, Mr Hicks, and other gentlemen taking part. In answer to a question, Mr Marson expressed himself as distinctly opposed to the teaching of religion in elementary day schools, a point upon which the chairman staged ha entirely dtifered from the lecturer 011 the motion of Mr HOBSON, seconded 'by Professor RICHARDS, a cordial vute of thanks was passed to Mr Marson for his address.
