BARRY FREE CHURCH COUNCIL AND THE EDUCATION ACT. LOCAL ADMINISTRATION TO BE j VIGOROUSLY RESISTED. CONSIDERATION OF A PLAN OF CAMPAIGN. WILL NOT PAY THE RATE FOR DENOMI- NATIONAL PURPOSES. DISTRAINT OR IMPRISONMENT IN PREFERENCE. STRONG VIEWS BY A CARDIFF MINISTER. Judging from the tone of feeling which pre- vailed at the quarterly meeting of the Barry Free Church Council, held at Bethel Presbyterian Chapel. Court-road, Cadoxton, on Friday evening last, a period of excitement will shortly be entered upon in connection with the local administration of the new Education Act, many of the leading Nonconformists of the town, pledged to a policy of passive resistance, being determined to refuse payment of any portion of the Poor Rate which may be utilised towards the maintenance of the local Roman Catholic School. There was a repre- sentative attendance at the meeting, and the Rev Aaron Davies, D,D., the president of the Council, occupied the chair, the principal item on the agenda being an address on Passive Resistance," delivered by the Rev G. Cooper Hawken, of Cardiff, EDITORSHIP OF THE MAGAZINE. The Rev D. Lee Cann having resigned the editorship of the Barry Free Church Magazine, in consequence of his forthcoming departure from the district, a hearty vote of thanks was acoorded to the rev. gentleman for the valuable services which he had rendered, and the Rev W. Williams was appointed to fill the vacancy. THE BIBLE CHRISTIAN DISTRICT MEETING. The President, Rev J. Mydyr Evans (secretary), Rev T. Pandy John, Rev J. Ibbotson, Rev J. Jeffrey, and the Rev Peter Kay were appointed as deputation to welcome the District Meeting of the Bible Christian Connexion to the town on the 25th of June. FINANCE. Mr J. Meikle, the treasurer, intimated that there were several accounts to meet, and he asked the churches to send in their subscriptions. Mr J. Hayes, the magazine treasurer, also appealed to the churches to take a deeper interest in the sale of the magazine, and endeavour to increase its circulation. THE PROPOSED GIRLS' GUILD. Rev J. Mydyr Evans reported that a strong committee of ladies had met and considered the question of starting a Girls' Guild in the town. To inaugurate the movement in a fitting manner they would require about £15 to procure furniture, and a shop or house in Holton-road, at a rental of not more than £20 per annum. The Executive and the Ladies' Committee were appointed to consider ways and means of raising funds for the successful carrying out of the proposed work. OPEN-AIR MEETINGS. It was announced that the Sunday Evening Open-Air Meetings under the auspices of the Council would commence on the 14th instant. PASSIVE RESISTANCE OF THE EDUCATION ACT. The Rev G. Cooper Hawken then proceeded to deliver a 'stirring and impassioned address on the subject of "Passive Resistance," in the hope, he said, of inspiring the members of the Free Churches of the town to act, and to act with determination, in the matter of the Education Act. The time for action had arrived. The key note had been struck at the Convention held last week at Cardiff. The conference was the finest that had ever been held in Wales, and for Wales to be at its best meant that the conference was deeply and intensely religious. Action was necessary and urgent; in fact, it had already begun. Mr Holt, one of Manchester's finest sons, had resigned his position on the Manchester City Council as a p-oce^t "gain t the administration of the Act, a course however which he considered was not a prudent one. The Isle of Wight Board of Guardians had also refused to levy that portion of the rate required for the administration of the Act. Becknor and Wordsworth too were towns that would go down in history for their action in the matter. Passive resistance was no longer merely in the air it had already gone into the law courts, but whether justice would be administered there or not would be quite another thing. He knew the grit and stuff of which Welshmen were character- istic, and he knew too that they, would not forsake their country or their God in the fight before them. Nonconformists on the Barry District Council would have an opportunity of resigning their positions rather than administer an Act which they did not conscientiously agree with. These were the first-fruits of an abundant harvest which was in store, and he hoped Mr Balfour and his friends would enjoy the reaping of that harvest. Mr Balfour did not seem to relish the sowing of the seed, and he believed he would have less cause for enjoying the reaping. Mr Balfour would, he thought, soon be wishing he went to the South African veldt instead of Joseph, and remained there. Theirs was a deliberate and conscientious rebellion against a pernicious Act of the Govern- ment. and it was now for every man and woman- for it was a question for both sexes-to determine what action they should take to resist its opera- tions. They must be on one side or the other in the fray. This fight, for this was what it had come to be, was not a fight of their own choosing or liking. They did not want to fight, but it had been forced upon them for the same reason that made Archbishop Laud cut off the ears and slit open the noses of their protesting forefathers. The very life and breath of Noncon- formity, it seemed, polluted the incensed atmos- phere of the Anglican Communion. For them to cross the threshold of an Evangelical Church, be it even the City Temple, was for them to pollute themselves, and it was time for Nonconformists to face these facts. Anglicans could not tolerate Nonconformists, and if they were true to their faith they dared not. They were acting according to their consciences, and may God help them both. They had tried to work side by side with the Church, but their views as to the relations of the State so widely and essentially differed. The battle before them, therefore, must be fought out vigorously, and the sooner it was done the better. vigorously, and the sooner it was done the better. They must look at themselves as others saw them. The true Anglican sought to get rid of Nonconfor- mity at whatever cost. Their duty, therefore, was plain. It was a great pity that they found themselves obliged to fight against the Church, with her scholars and saintly men, when they remembered that they had long stood side by side with one another in fighting such common foes as drink and gambling. It was a great pity that some concordat could not be arrived at whereby they could work harmoniously together again But now, at the beginning of the twentieth century, Nonconformists were called upon to fight for their liberties, the same as they had done during the reign of the Stewarts, and when Laud was Archbishop of Canterbury, for this Act was similar to the Schism Act which almost plunged England into a civil war, which was only averted by the death of Queen Anne. That was an Act intended to prevent Nonconformists from being tutors and teachers. He hoped all realised the deep gravity of the New Education Act. It was an alliance between the Tories and the Romanists similar to the alliance which took place between them when Philip of Spain sought the band of Mary of England. It was a monstrous and intolerable alliance. They had no desire to raise the cry of No Popery "without due cause, but it was his firm conviction that Protestantism was being- menaced, and its existence endangered. (Cheers.) The Pope, Mr Hawken said, would have a, new lease of life when he saw the homes of the Protestants of England being sold up by Protestants. The Romanists had strange friends when they had men like Dr Reid and Dr Wallace, of the Wesleyan Con- nexion, singing praises over the passing of the Education Act. Their position as Free Church- men, however, was not as grave as it was hoped by some it was. In London it was thought that the strength of Nonconformists was inconsiderable because they had been unable to prevent the passing of the Education Act. Now it was for the Free Churches to demonstrate their strength. He should like to remind the meeting of the principal objections to the Act. They objected to the Act because it gave the Anglican and Roman priests control over schools the money for the manage- ment of which was provided by the whole body of ratepayers. Why should the Roman Catholics have a voice in the control of the seven Board Schools in the district ? The Roman Catholic priest had been appointed on the Barry Education Authority, and why should he have been appointed? Why did he not go to the poll? Was not a stronger Roman Catholic than he beaten at the poll ? Why did they not elect a Methodist minister on the body ? Surely he had the same right to be elected as the Roman Catholic priest. When the clerical party contested a seat they always came out at the bottom of the poll, and he considered the Educa- tion Act of 1902 was a cleverly devised scheme to give the Romanists seats on the authority. At Widnes the authority, which was composed of twenty members, could only boast of two Non- conformists, for there the Church party, the Roman Catholics, and the brewers agreed together to defeat the Nonconformists. The peoples' schools were being made to pass more and more under priestly control. He (Mr Hawken) would suggest the appointment of a Vigilance Com- mittee to watch the work of the Education Com- mittee. By the passing of this Act 15,000 appoint- ments would be closed against Nonconformists. Out of 45 training colleges, 37 were sectarian. The Act compelled the people to pay for the teach- ing of doctrines to which they conscien- tiously objected. All the ratepayers of Barry were contributing something towards the promulgation of Roman Catholic teaching, and in matters of principle there was no difference between a pound and a penny. It was a system of teaching the young which had brought this country down to the lowest level of the countries of Europe. In Wales alone there were 700 schools belonging to Roman Catholics and the Church of England, to which Nonconformists would be com- pelled to send their children. The reason for this was that the people had accepted these schools instead of fighting for the continuance of Board Schools. Mr Balfour had said that there had been but little proslefcysing in these schools, and that they were wrong when they said they were making little Catholics of Nonconformists. But some of them had only to look to their own families for many such instances. The Education Act, he trusted, would as a force be brought to the front, and made a test question at every election. At Barry they had been too fast for the Lloyd George scheme, though perhaps they had not gone too fast for the Roman Catholics. As Nonconformists they would refuse to pay that portion of the Education Rate which was applied towards the support of voluntary schools. They did not intend to stand behind the door with a big stick to meet the bailiff. To him it was rather a question of what could be done when he knew that his money would go towards the teaching of that which was absolutely false. Luther did not say I will," or I won't." He said I can no other and it was the same with them. Knowing as they did they could not conscientiously pay this rate. He would not coerce anyone. If they could conscientiously pay the rate let them do so. By refusing to pay the Education Rate they would be perhaps breaking the law. So had Mr Balfour for furiously riding his motor car, and he was encouraging others to do likewise. John Bunyan did not think he was breaking the law by resisting the law. If they were breaking the law they were in good company. They should consider whether they were breaking the law of God by breaking a law which compeiled the enforcement of an obnoxious Education Act. There were many in the churches who would rather die than deny their God, and this being so they should seriously consider whether the law of the land violated the law of God. He prayed that God would rightly guide the Council in their deliberations. (Cheers). Mr S. R. Jones proposed, and the Rev T. Pandy John seconded, a vote of thanks to the Rev Cooper Hawken for his address, The Chairman suggested that the Council should pass a resolution similar to the following That inasmuch as the Education Act of 1902 violates the principles of public control and public expenditure, subjects teachers in elementary schools, supported out of the public funds, to I sectarian tests before appointment, and imposes upon Councils and Education Authorities the duties of maintaining and keeping efficient the voluntary schools, whilst denying to such authorities the means whereby such efficiency in each school can be maintained, this Council of the Free Churches of Barry rejoices in the policy adopted by the Welsh National Convention held at Cardiff on June 5th, 1903, and urges the Barry Urban District Council and Education Committee, in the administration of the Act and in fulfilment of their duties to the ratepayers, not to levy or apply in future any rate over which they do not exercise full control." Rev T. Pandy John agreed they should pass a strong resolution. In that suggested by the Chairman they had gone as far they could possibly go. If the rate had not been levied they could have worded a still stronger resolution. They did not wish to create disturb- ance, and assume a pugilistic attitude, but they were prepared, rather than pay the rate to go to Cardiff at the King's expense. There were, how- ever, many Nonconformists in this district who were wishy-washy." He was delighted with the letter written by Alderman J. C. Meggitt, which had appeared in the Barry Dock News, but he was sorry for the part played by the Chairman of the Barry Education Authority in denouncing his fellow Liberals in the way he did. He was also convinced that the Rev Father Byrne had not only captured a seat on the authority, but also the chairman of the committee. He was sorry the chairman did not use his casting-vote at the last meeting, but he trusted Miss Meredith would vote at the next meeting as a true Nonconformist. (Cheers.) Rev D. H, Williams, M.A., enquired whether it was absolutely necessary to spend the rate after it was levied ? The Chairman They are not bound to spend any money. On being put to the meeting, the resolution was unanimously agreed to. Mr S. R. Jones next moved that an open-air meeting be held, so that they could educate the people, many of whom did not know what was the meaning of the education rate. He had not paid his rate, neither did he intend to do so. This suggestion was also agreed to. and it was suggested to ask Mr W. Llewelyn Williams, B.A.L., and Mr Robert Bird to address the meeting. Rev Ben Evans suggested that a deputation wait upon the overseers of Barry and endeavour to induce them to accept the poor rate minus the amount levied for the up-keep of the Roman Catholic School. This recommendation the Council accepted, and the President, Rev D. H. Williams, Mr E. J. Thomas, and Mr James Cruise were appointed a deputation to wait upon the overseers (Mr J. A. Manaton, J.P., and Mr W, P. Phillips) on the following day. Rev William Williams asked if the action of the Education Committee at their last meeting, in refusing to fix the scale of salary for a teacher at the Roman Catholic School, was to pass unnoticed ? He had great pleasure in proposing the following resolution That we, the members of the Free Church Council of the Barry district, deeply regret the course followed by the Chairman of the Education Committee for this district in connection with putting in force the Education Act of 1902 and we emphatically condemn his action at the last meeting of the said committee, and the unjust and unwarrantable reflection he cast on Free Churchmen in suggesting persecution. We also thank the Free Churchmen on the Education Committee who defended our rights. Mr J. H. Edwards, secretary of the Barry Pro- testant 500, seconded, and the resolution, on being put to the meeting, was carried. Rev D. H. Williams considered that the Council should promote a Passive Resistance League." Rev Cooper Hawken and the Rev T. Pandy John pointed o^t that by doing this they would be placing themselves within the reach of the law of conspiracy. Rev D. H. Williams We should not be afraid of doing what is done in London and elsewhere. It was, however, decided to refer the matter to the executive for consideration. This concluded the meeting.
CRUELTY BY A TRUANT ATTENDANT AT D1NAS POWIS. At the instance of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, a young man named Leopold Tremberth, an attendant at Dinas Powis Truant School, was charged at Penarth Police Court on Wednesday last—before Mr J. W. Pyman and Mr W. Jones-with cruelly ill-treating a lad named Richard Franklin, aged 12, belonging to Cardiff, an inmate of the school, on the 20th ultimo. Mr D. W. Evans, solicitor, Cardiff, appeared for the prosecution, and Mr W. B. Francis, solicitor, Cardiff, defended. The lad named gave evidence that on the night of the 20th of May defendant came into the dormitory occupied by Franklin and other lads, and flogged him with a strap a number of times. On the following day there were several bruises on his back. In cross- examination, he denied that there was any noise in the dormitory when defendant came up. He stripped every morning and evening to be washed after the Wednesday night when he was beaten till he left on Saturday, but the officers present did not notice any marks on his back, neither did he make any complaint till after he left the place, for he feared he should be kept there till he was well.—Christopher Chambers, another lad, corro- borated.—Mr William Davies, the superintendent, heard no disturbance at the school at bed-time on the night in question, neither did he hear anyone crying. No complaint whatever was made to him of ill-treatment on the part of Tremberth, who, during the time he was at the school, was uni- formly kind to the lads. He heard nothing of the alleged assault till the Monday after Franklin left. On the Saturday when the boy left he was asked if he had any complaint to make and he said no.—Richard Franklin, the boy's father, said when the lad came home he complained of pains in the back, and on stripping him he found his back was black and blue with bruises." He took the boy to the police, the cruelty inspector, and the doctor. — Inspector New, N.S.P.C.C., described an interview which he had with the defendant on the 27th of May, and he admitted having given the boy Franklin a couple of blows on the back with a leathern strap.—Dr. C. C. McCall examined the boy on the 25th, and found nine bruises on his back, some of which might have been caused by the strap produced.- Mr Stephens, for the defence, commented upon the fact that defendant, a comparative youth, was left in charge of 89 truant boys in three dormitories on the night in question, and called Thomas Hayman, a boy who occupied the same dormitory as Franklin. The boys, he said, were keeping a noise in the room on the night of the 20th. They were playing and jumping over the beds, and defendant came in and strapped several of the boys who were creating a disturbance. Franklin he strapped three or four times, but the boy did not cry nor say that he was hurt.- Defendant admitted that he struck Franklin twice with the open hand as he was going upstairs to bed on the night in question. The boy was dis- orderly. He continued to be unruly in the dormitory, and he smacked him three times with a strap on the back. — Alexander Black, school- master, and William Washer, drill-master, described the system of examination of the boys at the school every night and morning. Franklin was examined in common with the other boys between the 20tn and 25th of May, and with the exception of a slight mark on his back, which might have been caused in play with the other boys, there was nothing to be seen on his back. neither did the boy make any complaint.-The Bench, after con- sideration, found the case proved, and fined the defendant 43 and costs, in default a month's imprisonment.

Lloyd Edwards, Major-General H. H. Lee, R.E., J.P., Mr J. A. Hughes, Mr T. Price, and Mr O. H. Jones.— The Chairman stated that the Finance Committee had gone into the estimate of receipts and expen- diture. and found they could not see their way to make any increase of salary at present.-Dr O'Donnell remarked that last year's statement showed a balance in hand, but the Clerk (Mr A. Jackson) pointed out that there were then out- standing liabilitie3.-It was decided to have copies of the estimate, and of the yearly accounts, sent to each member of the committee.—The annual accounts having been audited and approved, the Chairman and Mr Hughes were appointed to sign the same.—Several bills for repairs to the Inter- mediate School were submitted for payment, but Dr O'Donnell reminded the committee that these repairs should be done by the County Governing Body, as they allotted part of their income for the purpose.—The Clerk was, therefore, instructed to send these bills to the County Surveyor for pay- ment.

THIRTY-ONE THOUSAND MILES A MORRISTON MAN'S WALKING RECORD.. Many people, if they calculated the number of miles they walked in the course of a year would be surprised at the result. Mr David Evans, of 4. Tinman's-row, Old Bridge, Morriston, has walked with but one break of two years to and from his work, a distance of five miles, for twenty two DAVID EVANS. ( £ rom a Photograph by Ernest Madge, Morriston). years. At this rate, Mr Evans walked 1,565 miles annually, or would have walked in 22 years, but for an illness, no less than 31,300 miles. I like a good walk—nothing better," said Mr Evans, recently, to a Herald of Wales representative. I have been employed at the Park Tinplate Works at Clydach six years, and up till three weeks ago, walked daily to and from my work. Three years ago I found my health failing, and I was very reluctantly compelled to travel to Clydach by train. However, I was fortunately induced to try Dr Williams' pink pills for pale people, with the result that I rapidly regained my strength, and was enabled to resume my daily walk. -1 It is no wonder." Mr Evans went on, that I was so weak. I had not a drop of healthy blood in my body. My hands were white, and my finger nails and lips colourless. I was medically treated for impoverishment of the blood, but the only thing that seemed to do me any real good was Dr Williams' pink pills for pale people. The way they enriched my blood was astonishing. Before commencing to take them my blood was like water. On several occasions when I accidently cut my finger, a watery fluid oozed out instead of blood. Very soon after I had commenced to take Dr Williams' pink pills I felt an improvement. After the second dose, I could feel the blood coursing through my veins. I took in all five boxes of the pills, but I had recovered my health, strength, and spirits, before I had completed the third box. I am now as sound as a bell, and able to walk to and from my work without feeling in the least bit fatigued. Before taking the pills I had no appetite at all now I look forward to, and relish my meals.

THE BARRY PRIORY. To the Editor of the" BARRY DOCK NEWS." SIR,—In reply to Father Hopkins' letter in your last issue, kindly allow me to say I am prepared to stand by every word I said at the meeting of the Protestant Five Hundred, namely, that the Rector of the parish once took the Holy Communion in the Priory Chapel, and once made his confession to Father Hopkins. The vener. able Bishop of Llandaff is well able to defend himself. The present Archbishop of Canterbury is of the same opinion as to the Rev Father's I position as the Bishop of Llandaff. 1- Thanking you in anticipation, 1 am, yours truly, 37, Broad Street, Barry, J. MACRAE. June 8th, 1903.

CORPORAL PUNISHMENT IN SCHOOLS. To the Editor of the "BARRY DOCK NEWS." SIR,-Such cases as assaults upon Teachers by Parents, and of Teachers upon their Pupils, as have recently been reported in the Press are to be deplored, and are discreditable to the teaching profession. The charge of assault brought against a teacher employed at the Lan Schools, which was heard at the Pontypridd Police court a few days ago, is typical of what is likely to follow the use of corporal punishment in schools. It has been abolished from the schools of every other civilised country, but we continue to plod in the old ruts of custom and brutality." So far the National Union of Teachers has not produced a method of maintaining discipline without the use of corporal punishment, and in this respect the American teachers are forging ahead of us. They are speedily adopting the practice of pupil self- government and the method known as the School City System," which has produced excellent results on the character and conduct of the children. Sir John Gorst has recently stated that one of the two great obstacles to the improve- ment of elementary schools in this country is the use of corporal punishment, and continues- corporal punishment terrifies the children it makes them hate school and escape from it as much as they can it exasperates those parents who do not beat their children themselves, and resent its being done by persons to whom they are compelled by law to entrust them. I think if one of my own little girls bad ever been beaten by a schoolmaster, no fine and no imprisonment would ever have induced me to send her back to ,his school." Certainly something should be done to improve the discipline in our schools.—I am, &c., 22, Battlefield Avenue, RonsRT HENDERSON. Langside, Glasgow.
