and, in reply, he delivered a rousing call to ^ms, and said he had now attended four of hese conventions, and he would say that never "I the history of Wales had there been conven- tIons so representative, so enormous, so national, ^nd so thoroughly practical in their results. He had seen in Merioneth one of the finest in the history of that plucky little county, and there ^ere, many plucky things in the history of Merioneth. He had also been to Carnarvon, ^nd had seen a crowded convention of delegates r°m all parts of the recesses of Snowdon from all parts of the hills they crowded to Carnarvon, in the old days, to fight for the freedom and he independence of their native hills. He had ravelled to Gwent, and Gwent and Gwynedd ^ere in perfect accord. Now he came to ^organwg, and found the men of Morganwg as ready to fight as any part of the country. He hoped to go on to Dyfed, and there the people jyould be as zealous as they were here, and as determined. Wales had something to do—to give Vlsible signs of their spiritual grace. They had a Sood start, for Mr. John Cory had promised j^25° if Cardiff collected ^"1,000. Merioneth ad been struck, and now they said Glamorgan ^as going to be, but it was a long way off. 0 ey generally started with the smallest, and hey would probably go round to Radnor. If hey were going to tackle Glamorgan it would e the biggest bite they had ever tried to fallow. He rejoiced when he read of it, for he hew it would be the worst day's work—well, Perhaps they had better not encourage the Board of Education-the worst day's work they had e^er attempted. Let them do it by all manner °* means. Wales would not Change One Iota In her plans. I said," continued the hon. member, "of our plans. I have seen plans Promulgated, set up like Aunt Sallies, in the lory newspapers, just for the pleasure of hocking them down again. Those are not our Plans. We have got our own copyright. We wIll not have our patents infringed. Those plans that you see in the Tory papers that are not carried out, are just the plans of some forbid brains they have at their disposal. They are not ours. If you want to get our plans, you ^eek the resolutions of the various Cardiff Con- ations, and we will stick to them, the letter hat killeth and the spirit that maketh alive. is a great fight. We are fighting to remove a §reat wrong. It has been here for generations, luckily, the Government have given us the opportunity, and I feel grateful to them for what ey have done. They knew not what they ere doing. One would have thought their ^mcts would have saved them there. They in a gjji t0 buttress up sectarianism in the in to give a new lease of life to priestcraft education. They did even that so badly that ney put an end to the dominion of the priest jor ever. We'll have no more of it. This job yas got to be done no more 1870 compromises. °u cannot keep nations standing on tip toe, aft. § forth all their muscle and strength, time er time. You must get this done once for all your lifetime. The Government," he con- hed, "was now electioneering for the Liberal y- It was busy supporting Liberal can- le a^eS' Piping to return them, providing object ^Ssons in Toryism better than any speaker, owever eloquent, could give on the platform, a ,Crete facts that were burning into the brains the consciences of the nation. Ten or
fifteen years ago it was a favourite phrase, There is no difference at all between your Tory and your Liberal.' Fifteen years of Tory govern- ment had destroyed that chimera for ever. The time had now come for Wales to show the stuff she was made of. Mr. Brynmor Jones talked something about the Marquis of Londonderry banging his despatch box. Well," continued the speaker, I'll guarantee it was a pretty empty one. The Marquis of Londonderry teaching Wales how to manage education! Why, do you know that he failed to pass his own examinations at Oxford? Is Wales to be taught by this plucked Marquis what she has to do with education? No fear! There was always," he continued, "a cercain Luck following Wales in History. Some of her greatest achievements had been due to one of two things either she had been fighting against a weak monarchy, and by mon- archy he meant government, or she had been absolutely united. Wales was now united, and united in a great cause. They were fighting for fair play for the faith that had done all for Wales that was worth looking at. Nonconformity," he continued, picked Wales up from the quag- mire, helped to plant the feet of Wales on the rock, helped it, encouraged it, guided it up, and up, and up, and when from the heat of the day and the ruggedness of the path, or from the danger of the crags, Wales, like everything human, faltered. Nonconformity came there with its gentle arm to help it up, and said, 'Climb on, little Wales, climb on.' And when it showed a-tendency to go down, and down, and down, back into the morass, it was Nonconformity that came there and said, 'Turn back, my little land, turn back, my little land.' And now that Wales is ascending the brow of the hill, and the rays of the dawn are breaking on her, this is not the time, at the dictates of any Government, for us to thrust our greatest friend down the precipice. And we won't MR. WILLIAM JONES, M.P., AT LLANDRINDOD. At the Radnorshire Convention Mr. William Jones, M.P., was the chief speaker, and in the course of an eloquent speech recalled the fact that Vavasour Powell was a Radnorshire man, who nobly stood up for religious equality in benighted days; he was but a voice crying in the wilderness but to-day his plea had been taken up by the whole nation, and there were 50,000 passive resisters in England who stood on the same ground. Little Merionethshire had to face the brunt of the battle, but they could depend upon it the shells of the Government would fall wide of the mark, and would find lodgment, not in that little county, but some- where in Cardigan Bay. The Education Act, 1902, gave the maximum of public money to denominational schools, and the minimum amount of public control, plus sectarian tests, whereas there should be but two tests for teachers, namely, character and capacity. The Defaulting Authorities Act withheld grants earned by scholars in Council schools in order to use the money to help the non-provided schools. He called it petty larceny. In striking Merioneth the Government had struck the strongest Nonconformist county in Wales, and the county which had sacrificed more for educa- tion than any other county in this realm. There were 23 Church schools in that county, but the withdrawal of Nonconformist children would close half of these in a few days' time. They were told that Board schools were godless schools, but Merioneth had no county gaol, and it had the finest of Sunday schools.
