MEETING OF THE PASSIVE RESISTANCE LEAGUE. In accordance with an announcement made at the different Nonconformist Churches in the town on Sunday, a largely-attended meeting was held on Tuesday evening last at Tabernacle Vestry, Barry Docks. Mr S. R. Jones presided, and announced that the hon. secretary — Rev D. II. Williams, M.A. — was unable to be present owing to indisposition. The Chairman addressed the meeting on the work and objects of the League. As Nonconformists, he said, they had been wronged by the Government, and they were determined to take their stand and fight the enemy. The Education Act sought to compel people to pay for the teaching of religious dogmas which were contrary to their conscientious beliefs. If the managers of denominational schools wished to have religious instruction imparted they should be prepared to pay for it. By means of the League they sought no favour but fairplay, and they were going to get it. (Cheers.) — It was decided to call the League the Barry Passive Resistance League," Mr S. R. Jones being chairman Mr J. O. Davies, vice-chairman; Rev D. H. Williams, M.A., hon, secretary and the following as executive com- mittee :—Barry—Rev C. J. Clarke, Messrs W. H. Gibby and John Jenkins; Barry Dock-Rev T. Pandy John, Messrs J. Cruise and 1. Bateman Cadoxton—Rev Aaron Davies, Messrs T. Walters and H. H. RusselL-A large number joined the league.
