WELSH AND THE FUTURE OF WALES. THE book, which has just been published by Mr. SOUTHALL of Newport, and which is re- viewed in another column, raises once more the old question of the. relation of the Welsh language to the future of Wales. For centuries English statesmen and learned Welshmen have looked upon the Welsh language as an obstacle in the path of every Welshman, and out of a perverted love of uniformity or a mistaken idea of patriotism have vainly endeavoured to crush the old language out of existence. It has been excluded from the law courts its use hat* been forbidden in our administrative system its existence has been scorned and ignored in our schools at one time many opposed the translation of the Bible into Welsh lest it might help to perpetuate the despised language and for some generations the so-called National Church was filled with ministers who knew not the vulgar tongue of tho people. For very many years, we might almost say for centuries, its use has been forsworn by our gentry and our great men. Everything has been done to make it despised of men to reduce the noble language from its high literary position to the level of a patois and to make it first scorned, and then forgotten Until our own times its very existence has hardly been recognised by the English Govern- ment. Still, to-day, the Welsh language has a firmer hold on Welshmen all the world over than it ever had before, the pride that is taken in it is greater and more intelligent, its literary z, position is, at least, as high as ever it was, and never probably since the time when the whole of the Isle of Britain was held by the Cymry has it been spoken by as great a number of people. When these facts come calmly to be considered, it will be seen how stupid and how senseless it is to ignore a language of such surprising vitality in our legal, administrative, and educational systems. We have un- fortunately been compelled only too often to insist on its recognition in our legal and ad- ministrative systems. We are glad to think that public opinion is ripening on the matter, and that "jobs" such as those we have had occasion to denounce-the providing for the WoonvALLS and BERESEOKDS, and BULLENS at the expense of the Welsh people—will before long become impossible. Much more will re- main to be done before the recognition of the Welsh language will be as complete as it should 9 be in our law courts. At present, however we wish more particularly to draw attention to the place of Welsh in our educational system. The aim of statesmen and educationists has hitherto been to stamp out Welsh. It was seen that a monoglot Welshman had no chance in the race of life. The fault was, therefore, laid on the Welsh language, and the only remedy that suggested itself was to extir- .9 pate that language. It never seemed to have entered into the heads of these men that it was possible to teach English through the medium of Welsh. That great man, THOMAS CHARLES o'r Bala, did indeed foresee the right solution, as far back as the early days of this century. Learning our language first," he wrote to a It, friend, is the most expeditious way to come to the knowledge of another else why are not your youths in England, designed for scholars, set to Latin and Greek before they are taught English ?" Subsequent to the Report of the Education Commissioners in 1888 certain con- cessions were made by the Government with regard to the teaching of Welsh in elemen- tary schools. The most important were the promise of a grant of 4s. for each child passing- in Welsh grammar as a specific subject iu Standards 5, (5, and 7, and of 2s. per child in the average of the whole school for passes in translation from Welsh to English, and per- mission to use bilingual reading books in all standards and in all subjects. Hitherto the result has been, it must be confessed, a failure, and H.M. Chief Inspector of Schools for Wales says that he has been surprised and disap- pointed at the lethargy and indifference of the teachers and managers of schools in the matter. Very few of the 1,425 elementary schools in Wales have taken advantage of the concession, though the few schools that did take up Welsh as a specific subject did well, the Gelligaer School—which has a large admixture of English-speaking children—passing 82 per cent. in the first examination. The reasons for this partial failure are not far to seek. (1) There are no adequate text books for teaching Welsh. The Welsh Utilisa- tion Society has long promised to supply the want, but the promise has only been as yet very partially fulfilled, and Welsh cannot prac- tically be taught as yet as a class subject. (2) The fact that in Standards 4, 5, and (! Welsh has been treated as a specific subject (that is, an optional subject on the same level as Algebra, Latin, &c.) has placed it out of tbe reach of many schools, as very many children are compelled to leave school before entering Standard 5. (3) Schoolmasters have been afraid to tackle a new subject for the teaching of which they have had no training and no text-books. (4) School managers in rural Wales have not yet got rid of the old delusion that teaching Welsh would prevent the acquisition of a knowledge of English. (5) In bilingual districts, even where Welsh is pre- dominant, school managers have feared to inflict on English children the task of learning Welsh, and in some places there are no teachers capable of teaching Welsh. Welsh education- ists must be prepared to face the difficulties of the position. If the Utilisation Society does not issue the Bilingual Text-books which it has so long promised, the Government should
