THE WELSH SUSPENSORY BILL. MR STUART REN DEL ON "THE DUBLIN CASTLE OF WALE." On ^"■one-day night at c. Martin's Town Hall. Charing Cross; London, a crowded and enthusiastic meeting was held in favour of Welsh Difccstab!ishment. The chair was occupied by Mr Stuart Ki.-iid?l, M.P. "Tim Men of Harlech having been lmtgmticontiy rendered by the Ca.ru iu Nation. Choir, under the direction 01 Mr C. Emlyn Jones, 11. A.M., letters were read from several puolic gentlemen regretting their inability to be present and expressing their approval of the agitation ior the D.sestab'.isbnient of the Welsh Church. The CHAIHMAN* said tliey had reason to congratulate each other at the pro- gress they were making m that light which was nearest and dearest to their heart- (Applause.) Young Wales had -poken emphatically on the subject, and they and :1. decided majority in Parliament in favour .'if Welsh Disestablishment. (Cheers.) Still the | Ecclesiastical drum was being beaten very strongly by those who were always strongly moved by the question of "loaves and fishes." The Bishop of Manchester and the Bishop of Rochester had respectively called the Suspensory Bui as "in,;oLnt," unconstitutional," and cowardly. These were big words, but the Yemarkabio thing was that it was a right and necessary preliminary to the Disestablishment or the Church in Wales. At present the Church "CC:lll,id1 thi pü>,¡tic>n-that as soon as :1. m'in was invested in any office in jr, be had by law a freehold life-interest in it.. In other churches the eh-rgyman was treated in the same way as members of other professions. If through incom- petence or old age he was unable to do his work, or he was not wanted by the public, he took the consequences, and was not employed. (Hear, near,) The tocsin had been sounded, and notice was about to be given that the Welsh people were not going to allow these extravagant interests to continue much longer. (Loud cheers.) He pointed to the scandais that were daily takiifc place in the Church, the scandals of bankrupt vectors and drunken clergy. (Cheers, and dissent, accompanied by cries of "Turn him out.") He asked whether these scandals would )>• permitted in any other denomination ? | (No. no.) Welsh Disestablishment would do good to the English Church because the first rhmg its members would do after the settlement <'f tue_questi.m would be to look alter its own discipline. No church that could not support itself without State nursing was worthy of being called a true church. (Applause) The WeJsh had the oldest Church, the oldest language, and the oldest literature in these islands, and they had the intelligence, too. (Cheers,) Wales in- tended to have its own will in the matter of Welsh D establishment. (Loud and prolonged -heer.ng.) 1 he Church at present was nothing nor the Dublin Castle of Wales. (Applause.) Resolutions in support of Disestablishment and urging the Government to press forward the Suspe.sory Bill this session were enthusiastically adopted.
