Welsh Liberal Council. THE CHURCH BILL. The annual meeting, of the Welsh National Liberal Council was held at Llandrindod on Saturday. Lord St. David's (senior vice- president) presided and proposed that the amended scheme of organisation recom- mended by the Executive Committee be adopted. Representatives from East Rhondda, wished to rescind a. clause providing for representa- tion of Labour, Free Church, and temper- ance organisations at special conventions. An amendment was also proposed that the National Council shall meet twice in each year. Other speakers advocated quarterly meetings of tho Council, and Mr. J. Hugh Edwards, M.P., supported a compromise by having two meetings each year, one in Aug- ust and one in the winter, a great public meeting to be held in connection with the latter.—Tho amendment in favour of two meetings of the Council each year was car- ried. co Officers were elected as follows:—President, the Right Hon. D. Lloyd George. M.P.; vice- presidents. Lord St. Davids, Sir Francis Ed- wards, and Lord Clwyd; hon. treasurer, Major Breese, M.P. Lord St. Davids (in acknowledging his re- election as senior vice-president) said his desire was to unite aJl sections. He had seen a good deal in the papers lately about a Centre Party. He did not believe in centre parties. It was necessary to have a coalition to wind up the war, but in the long run the count-y would divide in tho middle. He did not know how they would divide in the future, but whicheer way the Tories went he would go the other way. (Applause.) The Executive Committeo was re-elected on the following basis:—36 representatives from the constituencies; the Chairman and Secre- tary of the Welsh Liberal Parliamentary Party; and 22 elected by ballot (twelve of the latter being women). Mr. J. Hugh Edwards, M.P., proposed the following resolution:—" In View of the great patent s.nd high prospective values of the Crown lands in Walea, and especially bearing in mind the doubtful character -of alleged manorial and similar rights claimed and ex- ercised by private individuals, this Council urges the necessity of completing the work of the Welsh Land Commission by pursuing fur- ther enquiry and promoting the necessary legislation."—The proposition was carried. Major Breese proposed a resolution express- ing profound gratitude to the President, the Prime Minister, for his immense services as the leading representative of the British Empire at the Peace Conference, congratu- lating him on the successful issue of his tiro- less efforts, and pledging earnest support in his endeavours to secure better, happier, and more cordial relations between tho several classes of neople at home.—The proposition was carried. Mr. Llewelyn Williams proposed a. resolu- tion -strongly disapproving of le Welsh Church Temporalities Act, passed into law last week. It was, ho said, a betrayal of the best interest of Wales. It was a re-endowment of thtj Church in Wales by a Government pro- posal, with a Prime Minister from Wales, and the agreement had been accepted by the majority of the Welsh members. It gave the lie to everything they had heard on Welsh Liberal platforms since 1868. It told the world that majority of the Welsh mem- bers, with three shining exceptions—Haydn Jono3, David Davies, and Sidney Robinson- knew better thnn their old leaders. Mr. Aeron Thomas (Swan50a), another ex- Welsh M.P., ,.r)conded the prorosition. He said he had always been taught, and reason told him, that any money given by the State to support religion was an endowment. That appealed to him as a boy on the Cardigan- shire hills, a.nd it was a creed he had never yet seen anything to controvert. H would have preferred the question to have been left for Wales to fight out. Lord St. Davids said the question was settled, whether they liked it Or not. It was settled either rightly or wrongly, and they would hear no more about disestablishment and disendowment, so far as it had gone. That being so. was it not their business to pull the Liberal Party in Wales together and get ahead? From that point of view would it not be wi.se.r to let the dead past bury its dead? Mr. -T. Hugh Enwards-I want to speak. Lord St. Davids—I know you do, and no dcubt you have a very able and complete answer which you would Jike to deliver, and then we shall a lot more speeches. No, I move the previous question. That was at once seconded in several places, and carried with only two dissentients. Mr. J. Hugh Edwards, M.P., who had no opportunity of replying to Mr Llewelyn Wil- liams, has made the following statement:—I strongly feel that Lord St. David's per- mitted Mr Llewelyn Williams to make his attack on the Welsh members he ought to h:1."e given the Welsh membftra who were present an opportunity to renl A full and erfectivo reply could easily hafre been made. The Welsh 'Church Act, T914, is to 00 put ;nto force without any organic change of any kind in its structure. True. the Welsh Church wil) gain financially; but it. must not be for- gotten that she is legally entitled to such gain under the provisions of the original Act, which sneeifically provided for the commutation of the life interests of tho Welsh clergy on the basis of the value of tithe as determinod by the septennial average at the time when the Act should come into force. The late Parlia- ment fixed the value of tithe for purposes of redemption at £109 per cent., but unfortun- ately it did not bring the commutation of tithe as directed in the Welsh Church Act within the scope of the measure for fixing the monetary value of tithe. Consequently, the Welsh Commissioners will 'be required to commute the life interests at the rate of JE136 per cent. Had they been able to commute on fie of C109 instead of £136 per cent., Mr. Williams and his friends would have had no word of criticism. The Treasury has made good the difference by a monetary grant, so that the Welsh County Councils will not be required to bear the loss. The bulk of the members and of the representatives of the Welsh Free Church Council agreed to accept the proffered grant. Mr. Aeron Thomas publicly confessed that in the Hrcnmstanees he preferred to see the Welsh Church Act dropped altogether, and the long st-uggle for disestablishment fought out again. In that statement he has crystallised the issue as it presented itself to Welsh mem- bers, but thev decided it was in the highest interests of Wales to effect a settlement of a controversy which has embittered the life of Wales for more than half a century. WELSH M.P.'s PROTEST. Majior David Davien, Mr Haydn .Tonps and Mr. Sidney Robinson have published the fol- lowing letter: — Nothing can be gained by prolonging a controversy on the Welsh Church Bill bu-, some comment is due from us on the reply from the Chairman and Secretary of' Vhe Party t-o (JIUr communication of the II h inst. Ycur correspondents challenge us to assort that either of the two fundamental principles of the W6l»h Church Act, 1914-viz., ,3.) that the Church in Wales should be dis- established, a.nd (b) that its endowment pre- vious to a eerta. n date should be secularised— are violated by the amending Bill. Surely the answer is obvious. The arHiciaJ compensation of the Church out of the Brit'sh Treasury for the loss of :.110 secularised endowments is a clear violation of the fundamental principles of the original Ao\ It also involves the prin- ciple. of State endowment cf religion, to which Ncnoo<nform's:,s have always' been resolutely opposed. They further assert that thd real of the situation is that the Act of 1914 must be put into operation or it must not. We agree; but our contention is that it can- not be, and is not put into operation without I fundamental change, and ihei new Bill makes mos) important changes in it—e.g., by amend- ing the provisions of the Fifth Schedule, and thus providing a reserve fund for tho Church against which there are no charge T~. would have been in coscrnance with the spirit and the lefe er of the original Act, and politically more decent to have applied the Tithe Act, 1918. and to have changed the rate of interest to five per cent., than to have burdened the British taxpayer to the extant of a million pounds merely to ease an inconvenient political siuation. The taunt- that we voted in the same Lobby as Lord Hugh Cecil and Lord Robert Cecil does not disturb us. There are only two Lobbies—and on this occasion one of them was fcr the supporters of an unjust com- promise the other for thor.e who adhered to a. fair and reasonable set'Jement based tLUOD. firmly established principles. We are content to leave our actions and our motives :0 the judgment of the Welsh people.

Training of Nurses. I I OPPORTUNITY FOR THE WELSH UNIVER- SITY. A correspondent in a Cardiff paper writes:- The work of health visiting promises to become a definitely recognised profession for women, with a new and enhanced status resting on a foundation of thoiOugh and careful training: The work in its ultimate results will be of immense social importance, for in ten years' time one can foresee that the diffusion by well-trained and intelligent nurses of scientific knowledge applied to the well-being of mothers and children and the health of the home will bear abundant fruit, not only in the preven- tion of sickness and the saving of infant life, but in dispersing ignorance and superstition in matters of health. Women who are at pre- sent in receipt of salaries for doing he? work for public authorities will be undis- turbed, except that it will be urged that they should be granted facilities for further train- ing. The training of nurses up to the present has been directed to the relief of pain. The num- ber of women who have had their training directed to the prevention of disease is negli- gible, and now, when it is well known that tuberculosis, venereal diseases, and many of the most widely aet;ng causes leadinp to the death of ycung children Pre preventive the Ministry of Health proceeds to organise and train a large section of the future nursing class of this country to prevent disease and to bring into most of the homes of the land know- ledge and skilled helt>. The trained nurse will in future have to add to her general training a knowledge of hygiene, infectious and com- munable di-eases, household management, and public health law and regulations. After complet;on of this further training, she may then, gi"pn the necessary ta/rt and enthusiasm, be considered as a valuable instrument for the work of preventive medicine and social edu- cation. I The other class of woman to bo recruited will be obtained from among those over eighteen years of age, possessing a good secondary education or a university degree. She will spend two years' training in physio- logy. anatomy, hygiene, infectious diseases, artisan cookery, and household management, maternity and child welfare, organ'sat'on, ele- mentary economics, and social problem*. Tralf of her time will be soent in practical work in schools, clinics. day nurseries, infant welfare centres, and tuberculosis diqrw-nsaries, and in association with trained health visitors. When sufficient time has elapsed to nOW of the training oF a sufficient number of such w-omerv public authorities will cease to emolov health visitors w'^d hs>:Tr» not had this training. It is Ia'd down that any training school proposed to be established will have to be associated with a university centre. Here is a fitting enrortunitv for the Welsh University to establish at Cardiff, in conjunction with thn School of Preventive Medicine, such a training department.

THE GIRL I" I THEY II By Madge Ambrose. I The Lovers. T'M sorry for you, Peg. You've given A Jim Snell the go-by, and you've set your haarf on young Master John. I wish good may come of it, my lass and I hope for your own sweet sake that you won't regret it." I. was with these rough kindly words still ringing in her ears like a benediction that Peg Miudleton. having kissed both her parents, wen., out for her even ng walk. She had no conscious object as she set out, bu, somehow her footsteps led her up a side street over a stile agid across a meadow, and out again into a lane where -the treev, met over- head. At the top of the lane surrounded by acres of park and wood, s'ood the Hall, where John Drummond, tho millowner, lived with his wife and only son. Pe^ walked on until she reached a spot where a little stream came gurgling under the bridge. Clo-e by was the small wicket gate which gave entrance to the Hall grounds. She sat down on the- low stone coping of the bridge and here near to the house w:iere lived the man she loved-tho spo, where often she had met him before—she gave herself up to reverie. Peg's thoughts were troubled. That even- ing, when walking home with lier from t)iq mill, J m Snell had proposed to her, and much aa she knew it hurt him, she had to refuse him. A truer friend than honest Jim Snell Peg knew she would never find, and she was well aware that all his love was given to her. But it could never be. Somecne else had won Peg's heart. John Drummond, the son of her employer, was the man she loved, and although her parents warned her thaA. only trouble would coma of it, she knew that her heart was his, a<nd would always be. The fain, click of the wicket ga.te and the sound of footsteps broke in upon her thoughts. She knew who was coming, but for an instanco she found i ■ impcss blo to turn and meet him, or even to lift her oyes. from the contempla- tion of the flowing wa'-or. She felt suddenly self-conscious and tongue-tied. John Drummond had seen her, and for a moment he stood watching her struck bv the unaccustomed pensiveness of her attitude- revelling in the joy of her beau'iy. Then, with the consciousness of something new—something imperious atnd unsubdued in his attitude towards her, he walked quickly to her slide. "Peggy, Peggy, my dear little Peggy." The words burst ftom his lips involuntarily, and going to her, he possessed himself with sudden masterfulness of both her hands. He fels that they were trembling in his clasp, and tha passion of tenderness that welled up in his heart swept the last barrier away. "Peggy, my little love-my dear—my dearest dear. I love you, Peggy-love you bet'er than anything else in the world. Oh, Peggy-will you—can you-do yott care for me enough to be my wife?" Oh the wonder of it! This man who had won her hearL, really loved her. Gone were all doubts. She forgot that she was only one of his father's employees. Noth ng counted but their love. With perLe-at simplicity she lif'<ed a dimpling face to his, and their l:ps met in a perfect ki% of love. Then gravely Peg releal-ed herself from his arms, a troubled frown on her smooth brow. "I'm not;, thy class, John. I know nought of the things thy wife ought 'o know. But I'll y and learn and I'll love you a,3 no one else could love you; but you rnunt be patient with me a, first." "A fig for the things you don's know, Peg; my darling!" John retorted. "Not my cl&ss1 indeed! As if I cared a jo-t. "You're Peg-my precious, wonderful girl-and belong to no class except yur own My Peg is in a class all by herself, I'd have you know, because there's no one in the world like her. So there!" Asl he Sipoke Miere came from round the bend of the lane the sound of carriage wheels, and almost immediately a brougham with a pair of honoes, driven by a man in faded livery, swept cn to the bridge. Peg had a vision of a young lady of her own age in evening dress who was lean ng languidly against the window. She saw her look curiously a-, her, and then bow with a smile to John Drummond, who had taken off his cap. The next moment the carriage ha.d disappeared down -.ho lane, and John turned to Peg. "Now, darling," he said, "that carriage has just reminded me "Shat I've got to leave you, Peg, my dear. I promised mother faithfully to be back in time for :-he visitors who are «m»:ng. To-morrow. rfis heart singing within him, John left Peg on ,he bridge, and made his way back to the Hall. A servant in livery was serving coffee on the veranda to his mother and Miss Edith Gascoigna. "Ah, John, I thought you'd forgotten your promise," his mother exclaimed, ris.ng. "You must please entertain Edith whiie I aitend to something indoors." John Drummond took the seat his mother had vacated by the side of the -all, fair-haired, aristocratic looking girl whom it was an open secret Mrs. Drummond, a.t leae,, wished h m to marry. "I didn't think we should have the pleasure of seeing you at all to-nigh\ Edith Capccigne retmarked in a frigid tone of Voice. "Why?" ho asked quietly. She lay back in her chair with an air of haughty disgust. "In future Mr. Drummond, I should be glad if, when you find it necessary to parade your common mill-girl sweetheart, you will not think it necessary to salute me." The colour surged up into John Drummond's cheeks. "Miss Middleton is one of my father's mill- hands," he answered furiously. "Neverthe- less, to-night I want everyone to know that she has consented to become my wife. I am gong to my father, now to tell him, ho said, "If my engagement has his approval I shall be all the better pleased. If it hasn't, well, Peg and I love one another aaid that is enough." He turned on his heel as he spoke and making his way into -.he house, sought out his fatrer in the b.lliard-room. Finding him alone. John at once plunged into his subject:— "I love Peg Middlaton, and I mean to marry her," he said defiantly. "I've asked her to- night. to be my wife, and she's consented." By not even the tremor of an eyelid did old Mr Drummond evince his surprise. He under- stood his son too well to openly oppose this majtioh. So he answered gravely:— "Peg Middletcn—le«'a see? I don't rightly remember having set eyes on her? She works; in the card room I believe, the daughter of Josiah Middlei-on ?" John broke into a long rhapsody of Peg, and the unalterable love he had for her. The old man crossed the room, and put the cue back in the rack. "I'll not say one way or the o'.her, John. till I've seen the lass. That's straiglil enough. And my boy, trust the old man that if he thinks weH of your choice he'll do the right by you and her." Next day the millowner carried out his pur- pose. Choosing an hour when he knew Peg would be at home, he set out for the homely .Y cordage. Peg was alone, and although she feit oonfused to find herself face to face with her employer, with real Lancashire pride sho tried not to show i •. With simple courtesy she invited him in, and before he quite knew what had happened Mr Drummond found himself seated with a s'oeaming cup of tea in front of him. "So you're Peg—the lass that my lad has asked to mary him?" A smile broke out on her lips dimpling her cheeks. "That's right, master," she answered. Ho gazed' at her grimly. "Now, you're a mill hand, my lass—we'll call a spade a spade if you don', mind. You have nothing but what you earn and if I were to say that you were no fit wife for my sen, and ye. you married him, net a penny of my. bra.<:¡> would go into his pocket, and where would you be then?" I J Suddenly Peg's expression changed to one almost of alarm. "Y«U surely don't think, Mr Drummond, tha; I wouldn't gladly work my fingers to the bone for the lad I lovei?'' Th old mijlowner looked at her ton? atnd siearohingly. There was no minto king hQ ,enuno-" of what she said. And in that moment of time he made up his mind. That's the spiri >, lasg," he said. "I came hero to see the sort of girl you were, and 1 think my John's a lucky lad. You have my approval lass "There's just one thing-, Peg. You're going to be John's wife, and it's only right that you should got into the ways and manners of foiks among whom you'll have to live. Now, I want you to leave here and come up ^o the Hail. And we'll have a governess for you, and teach you the wayis of your husband's folk. We'll make a fine lady of you. Peg." Peg started from her chair in terror. "NV, Mir Drummond," she said, 'I'd a deal er be "Ae Peg your John loved first." He patted her hand encouragingly. "My deW, I don't propose to-' change your sweetheart. You needn't be frightened. The frills being put op. you won't change my Jo.hn's Peg. if I'm not mistajkan." A few moments la-er Mr Drummond took his leave, and Peg was left to break the news f his visit and all he had said, to1, her par- ents. Much to her surprise they both agreed that the millowner's suggestion was a wise one. "Mr. Drummcnd's right, Mrs Midd'eton declared with practical good sonse. "It'll be bpird for m all-the losing of you, and all ,hat but it'll save you no' end o' trouble later." A week later Peg., having bade good-bye, to her fathetr and mother, made her way up to the Hall. John met her at the Lodgo, and Jogether they waiked t-owards the house, where they ware me, by Mrs. Drummond. "This is my mother, Peg," John broke in rrfther hastily, and Peg held out a friendiy hand, and half raised her face for the expected kiss. But t-lit- elder woman drew back chil- lingly, and after saying that she'd show Peg to her room she deigned no further remark, but led 'he girl up the wide staircase, and into a bright pretty room, with small pink roseq apid white muslin. "We dine late here of course," she hen said, as the girl looked round in wonder- ing admiration at her new surroundings, "but you doubtless do not feel sufficiently at home to care to join us as yet. Perhaps, later, when the governess my husband is en- gaging for you has given you a little training and shown you how to beha.ve like a lady, we may find it;, possible to receive you in the dining room. Till then I suggest you d'.ne by yourself in the little room we have set apar» for your studies." Peg drew in a quick breath, and (b- her blue eyes met those of the elder woman in an unmistakable challenge. Poor little Peg!

I I expect you feel a.> I do Mi at it is a bit of riy. p n. sibility to be a father c.f a boy. The lad mav bo working all right at school, yet one feels that schooling does not defini .ely teach him ( as an individual -me things that are neoes- I ary fd succes. I mean such things as (1) charao "er, tha:t is a sense of humour and fair play, steadfastness and pluck, self-reliance and cheery unselfishness, etc. (2) Handicraft and skill through hobbies which keep a boy inter- ested and usefully occupied. (3) Physical ilcyelopmont and hcahh kn,-AVedge including avo dance of sex dangers etc. (4) Ho'pfulness to others and senso of duty to the community. These are t.hihgs that are left to the father to impairt, or, what is tao generally the case if he is a busy man, to the boy to pick up as bcs1 be can in his out-of-school or out-of- workshcrp time. It oft-en results in his not doing ,Vo at all and thereby boe,ming a fail- ure. A boy's out-of-school play time runs to a big amount when one comes to tot it up. In these play houra he may learn what is good, bu% as often as not what is bad. This dmends on his surroundings and companions. Whether he is wild or slack, wayward or back- ward, there is generally something that his father wou',d like to see corrected. The pa<ren-, feels that it is not playing the game to let the boy drift into being a slacker, yet what is ho to do? Well here is one way. In order to help the paren.- in this matter and to save the boy, the Boy Scout Move- ment has been devised. We endeavour to supply a good environment with healthy activ- ities which appeal to the boy and at the same t'me develop in him the attributes that go to make a man of him. The sole aim of the movement is to make hapoy, efficient citizens. We dio not go in for military drill, we make no distinction as to what religious belief or social standing tho boy has, and we have no political bias. If you approve the organisa- tion, the a. ms and methods of the movement., you might do well to encourage your boy to yo join the nearer, troop of Scouts. He will no doubt be glad to join that jolly brotherhood, and will have t-he satisfaction of feeling that he is no longer wasting his out-of-school time but is p'cking up practical knowledge and forming character that will »end to make him a hoaltny. haippy, and successful man.

Writing on 15th April, 1919. Mrs Fairbrass, r,aid :Seventeen years ago Doan's Backache Kidney Pills; gave me a new lease of life, by ridding me absolutely of advanced kidney disease. I am even yot in very good health.'5 Told Two Years To Live! On 21st January, 1905, Mrs Fairbrass made the statement which caused so many enquiries: —"Not only my present good health," she said, "but even the fact tha-, I am al ve, must be credited to Doan's Pills. In 1902 I was told I had only two years to live. I had advanced kidney disease, and was wheeled from place to place in a bathchair. Dropsy nearly suffocated mo. Backache, nervousness and depression added to my wrotchedness. Bladder action almost erased a1, timeg.-on one occasion, filotu&Uy, for 30 hours. I nearly lost my reascn. "But I treated eventually, with Dean's Backache Kidney Pill.-i- -and I saved my 1 fe. Within three months I was walking about, calling on friends, and doing my shopping, just as I did before I became an invalid. 91 "The bath-chair is done with forever, I hope. At a.nv rato, I have no sign of kidney trouble now. I gratefully recommend Doan's Pills to any who may be subject to kidney or bladder weakness. (Signed) E. S. F. irbrs."
