AN UNFORTUNATE SPEECH. THE workmen's cause must be seriously endangered if it has many attacks upon it after the manner of Mr David Morgan's speech at the Rocking Stone on Monday last. We have read it more than once, we have marked it, underlined it, and searched in vain for anything that will tend to give wisdom to the men in their present frame of mind. The meeting was convened with the purpose of further- ing the new organization movement which is the first effort of the men after the late dispute. Mr D. Morgan was invited to speak in its support. Bat there never was speech and resolution further apart. The North and South poles are, in comparison, very near neighbours indeed. We will first quote the resolution: That we thoroughly ''endorse the action of our. leaders in propagating an efficient Union based upon Trades' Union principles amongst the miners of South Wales, with a view to amalgamation, as soon as possible, with the Miner's Federation of Great Britain, and we recommend to the miners of South Wales the advisability cf electing officers and executive of the new Trades' Union organisation by a ballot vote taken amongst all the members of the new organisation." The motion says that it thoroughly endorses the action of our leaders." Who are these leaders ? Mabon surely is one, and the other eight members of the Pro- visional Committee, who had the unpleasant and unthankful task of making the best settlement at the end of the last strike. These and Mr D. Morgan's following among the leaders are all working in different parts of South Wales to create an organisation worthy of the men. Mr Morgan came to the meeting, and what did he do ? He said little about organisation and a great deal against the leaders. He singled out Mabon for his special wrath. It is said that two of a trade never agree," and it is to be feared that Mr Morgan is not altogether free from the contagious truth of the old adage. Our friend from Aberdare likes the truth, and we delight to give him a dish which suits his appetite. Two of a trade never agree," the trade is leadership, and just to show that it is truth we get the speech of blackguarding Mabon from Mr Morgan on the Rocking Stone. A splendid example of honesty this "that we thoroughly endorse the action of our leaders" supported by Mr Morgan after he has spent three- fourth of the time in denouncing the majority of the leaders in some of the choicest language imaginable. Now let us see what he said about the leaders: that they ought to be ashamed of themselves for making the last settlement," that though he did not say that they were sold; but I that they might be sold for nothing'" that "they had been mis- led into the pit of slavery in which they found themselves." Still we find Mr Morgan allowing that same meeting to pass a resolution with the leading phrase of we throughly endorse the action of our leaders, etc." Why did he not say straightly and honestly that after what he had said about these leaders it was not consistent, until these leaders were sent bag and baggage to the right about, afad particularly Mabon and his party. If our friend claims that his lips tiuthfully express his heart, such would have been the logical conclusion. Take again the libellous statement anent Mabon in which he said that he had found so many deceptions in Mabon that what- ever he now said, he did not believe half of what he said." And still he goes for organisation in which Mabon will be one of its leaders, and in which his party, at any rate, will hold a very strong position. Does Mr Morgan think that speeches of that kind can help the workmen's cause. Does Mr Morgan think some- times that it is possible there are other people as honest as himself, but who do not bluster and hurricane honesty after his fashion. And last of all we will ask him how are the Wellsh colliers to grow into a solid phalanx to fight for the cause of right and justice. It is not by dynamite speeches, s*ch were not. out of harmony with the intelligence of 30 years ago. To-day the workmen read, and we know this, and it is the truth-that hundreds of Rhondda intelligent colliers are deeply digusted with the speech on the Rocking Stone. Mr Morgan, said that he had not been there for 30 years Many of of then think that it is a pity he did not extend the- record.
♦ LLANTRISAMT School Board meetings make lively reading doubtless for the many who are free from the anxiety of tenure under the Board. The report of the last meeting proves beyond any doubt that the ratepayers must seriously take into consideration the temper and fitness of their local administrators of the Education Act,. Workmen must generally sympathise with their fellow men and women who have accepted gafferdom at the hands of some of these truly rural educationists. The personal and not the judicial instinct reigns too supreme. in this area. Rural School Boards have generally been deplored for their ineptitude. This will supply Sir John Gorst with another caustic illus- tration. Education is too precious in its influence upon the welfare of people to be the shuttlecock of passions. When any man finds that he cannot discharge a public trust free from the governing impulse of embittered hostility, he ought, in honesty, to resign, Rural School Boards are always beset with the danger of the dominant sway of personal retaliation. The draw upon sound representative calibre is limited, and too frequently in rural areas we find that the personal element, with its petty minded administration, rules to the detriment of the true principles which should form the attitude of members of local authorities. A School Board demands the finest of men. They should firstly and lastly hold no brief for passions. The welfare of the 1

people, the leeway we have to make in, education, axe too urgent to be fretted away in squabbling deliberations. The report of the last meeting of the Llan- trisant School Board has been to us very painful reading. The practice of hauling up teachers because they have not secured the highest grants obtains only in few instances in this district, and it is not helpful as a cure. The Llantrisant School Board members can easily realise their ambition of higher grants. If they visited the schools and took evidence on the spot, examined the nature and power of their own adminis- trative resources in the quality of staff and equipment of material for teaching, they would soon bring about the con- version of results desired. Let the members of the Llantrisant School Board begin examinations by self- questioning. Let, them supply the schools with a proper staff, qualified in the most efficient way to do the mould- ing of the children of the working men, and not leave it largely to apprentices; then, if they like, let them come down with as much vigour as they like on inefficiency. Pharaoh was condemned for ooercing the Israelite to make bricks without straw. The Llantrisant School Board is not much better when it hauls up an Infant Mistress before it because she cannot earn the higher grants with a Pupil Teacher and a little Menitor. Another teacher is badgered sys- tematically by the constant 11 show-big performances, of the member of the Board in his School. If teachers should be respected anywhere it is in their Schools, and in the presence of the children who are to be educated by them. Any display which reduces the authority of the Teacher, before his or her scholars, is against true educational influence. Happily such swaggerers are few, but one flea has great power of annoyance. It is for the people to see that such folks ame deprived of bheir power. The Llantrisant School Board meetings are too much occupied as the cock-pits of rival dignities of these so- called representatives of the people. The members are in a perpetual state of warfare, and when winded they in- variably devis& schemes of worrying the Schools, and making their success a matter of phenomenal possibility. We certainly feel that the teachers made an unanswerable case in their own defence last Monday. We heartily commend the chairman for running away, as a protest against a motion which was made absolutely untenable by the in- terviews at the meeting. He has allowed too many ridiculous exhibitions in the past, but we trust that the tragedy advertised for last Monday and which ended in comedy, is the last possible of countenance in the parish of Llantrisant.
