LAMPETER AND SECONDARY EDUCATION WE know of no better testimony to the value and excellence of the work and influence of our county intermediate schools than the fact that many places which once looked askance upon them are already. anxious to adopt them—and that when the majority of them have as yet hardly emerged from their experimental stage. This fact affords a striking object lesson on the wisdom of falling into line with all great movements that make for progress—and what can equal education as a compelling force in the general advancement of humanity. The county schools are not only proving inestimable .boons in themselves, but it is already apparent that many minor advantages follow in their train; and it is but natural to expect that those districts which did not avail themselves of the opportunities to establish such schools now regret to find themselves deprived of the benefits which accrue from them. The other districts which had more faith-although not having received the promise, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them —now enjoy the fruits of their labour and resent any attempt on the part of the faith- less to enter the Promised Land. Such is the attitude of those neighbourhoods which undertook the burden and responsibilities of establishing intermediate schools in their midst a few years ago towards those other neighbourhoods which then shirked the undertaking but are now, having seen the error of their ways, willing and eager to bear it. These evidently were the con- siderations which impelled the representa- tives of the Tregaron and the Llandy?sul school districts to enter a protest at the Inquiry held by the Board of Education at Lampeter on Thursday against the proposal to establish a higher grade school for girls at that town. On another page we give a full and exclusive report of this important Inquiry, and we believe that a careful con- sideration of the evidence will do much to enable all interested to find a common ground, and to disarm the opposers of some, at least, of the fears entertained as to the prejudicial effect of a new and additional school at Lampeter upon those J of the peighbouring towns of Tregaron and Llan- dyssul. That the establishment of a new school at Lampeter will disturb the existing arrangement there can be no doubt; but it might be argued that that is not sufficient reason why Lampeter should not be allowed to correct its past errors at its own expense —errors chiefly due, we believe, to the ill- advised policy of a former personelle of the Cabinet of St. David's College. One thing is to be deeply regretted, and that is, that the present enlightened policy did not pre- vail at Lampeter when the scheme for providing secondary education for the county was in its formative stage. Had Lampeter the benefit of the wise counsels of Principal BEBB and of the energy of Vice-Principal WALKER at that time, we feel sure that that town could to-day boast of a mixed or dual intermediate school second to none in the whole county. It must be admitted that Lampeter lends itself admirably in every respect for the purposes of a higher grade school for girls, and the marvel is that such an institution has not long ago found a home at that town. The building in which it is proposed to lodge the school may not be quite an ideal one; but it is, we think, much superior in point of architecture and accom- modation tojjmany a "more recent structure built specifically for the purpose. A higher grade school for girls would be a fitting com- plement to the other educational institutions at that town; and there can be no doubt but that the one would materially aid the success of the other. Bearing in mind the continuous growth of the town, and the fact that it has certain associations which would attract pupils from afar, it is very question- able whether the provisions contemplated by the promoters are adequate. There is an impression upon some minds that the school is promoted solely or mainly in the interests of the Church of England. This, of course, is a purely erroneous idea, and the names of some of the persons who interest themselves I in the movement, and the constitution of the School Board should be a sufficient guarantee against any taint of denomma- tionalism. Education has made great and rapid strides of late, and, like all organisms, it becomes more complex as it rises from I scale to scale. Questions that a few years ago did not enter the heads of our educa- tional authorities have by to-day ripened to such a degree that they can no longer brook any delay; and of these questions the one that engages the public mind most seriously at present is that of the better training of pupil teachers, and the determination to grapple with this problem has much to do with the movement in favour of a secondary school at Lampeter-so far as the School Board is concerned, at any rate. The assurances given to Mr. LEFROY at the Inquiry will, no doubt, to some extent modify the views of the County Governing Body as expressed at its meeting at Aber- ystwyth on the previous day and reported in another column. In any case, pending further developments, let us hope that the question will be not only discussed fairly and dispassionately, but also given the full and thorough consideration which it merits.
DEVELOPMENT OF THE WESTERN SEA FISHERIES. LAST week Mr. JOHN FELL, of Preston, pre- sided over a Conference of Fishermen and others at Aberystwyth, which was one of a series of sittings conducted under the Lan- cashire and Western Sea Fisheries Associa- tion for the purpose of considering the new bye-laws regulating the industry in the Amalgamated District of the Board. The Conference, it was stated by those best qualified to judge, was one of the most successful yet held in the district; but the only thing in the proceedings to which we would briefly invite attention at present, was the memorial of the Council of the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, in favour of the establishment of an investigation station for fishery, purposes in connection with the College. The memorial waf ably supported by Principal ROBERTS, and it is to be hoped that the favourable impressions created by him that day upon one and all will not be allowed to pass away before some lasting good will have been yielded. The PRINCIPAL pointed out that it was in the interests of the fisheries of Wales that there should be at least one investigation station in connec- tion with the Western Sea Fishery District. In connection with this project the College at Aberystwyth was suitably situated on the margin of the sea, and possessed Ja zoological department. The matter was one which the College unaided could not carry out, as it would require the services of an expert. He suggested that an effective way would be by co-operation between the various county authorities for establishing a general fund for this purpose. It was clear that they could not limit fisheries by hard and fast lines, for the whole fisheries of the Irish Sea were really one question, and Cardigan Bay was really a contiguous part of the Irish Sea. Behind that there was the larger question of Government aid. At the present time the Fishery Board of Scotland, largely subsidised by the Government, hid rendered and was rendering most admirable service in developing all the fisheries of that area. It was natural to their minds, that Wales should be regarded in some respects as having claims for consideration. The present claim was not made from any narrow point of view, but in order that Welsh Fisheries might have the benefit of careful consideration and investigation. On behalf of the Town Council Mr Alderman PETER JONES said that the Council were prepared to consider the question of the erection of an aquarium in connection with the College, on the Promenade. The Town Council would do all they possibly could to supplement the efforts of the College authorities. A.ny expense incidental to that phase of the matter would be borne by the Town Council, which would in a tangible way co-operate with other authorities.

The fairest action of our human life Is scorning to revenge an injury For who forgives without a further strife His adversary's heart to him doth tie: And 'tis a firmer conquest truly said To win the heart, than overthrow the head. LADT ELIZABETH CAREW. (16th—17 Centuries). You must, have the good-will and assent of the people you govern. These are the only conditions on which you: can hope to hold South Africa. What shall be the temper and attitude of our im- perial Government towards the people of those States against which we have been in arms, and towards their kinsmen amongst our fellow-subjects in the colonies? Upon this I say solemnly that I firmly believe the future fate of British South Africa depends. I trust the Government will not hastily give an unfavourable answer to my appeal. I would implore them-indeed, I would implore the House in every part-to sink every motive of party dignity and triumph, to forget the prejudices and interests of party, in dealing with this momentous issue. If this actual moment is inopportune- which it may be, for of that an outsider cannot judge,—at least let nothing be said to prevent the very earliest opportunity being seized.—We need never be afraid that evil will come to our Empire by listening to the dictates of prudence, generosity, and humanity. SIR HENRY CAMPELL-BANNERMAN. (House of Commons last Thursday) m. 1I The Prison Commissioners have written to Mr W. W. T. Fiosser, clerk to the visiting fustices, stating tb.t there is no truth in the report that Carmarthen Prison is to be' closed. Plague is again raging in Bombay, and over 900 deaths from the disease occurred List week. The Government remedial mea- sures, it is stated, are now limited, and tend more towards providing succour for the sick than preventing the spread of the disease. Admiral Field, late1 M.P. for the East- bourne Division, and chairman of the Gosport Bench, was summoned at Gosp&rt for riding a bicycle on the footway of the Fareham-road. The Admiral pleaded guilty and urged that the road was very muddy and sticky. To avoid the possibility of a fall he got on the footway. He was fined 5s and 2s Gd costs. Nine directors of the Farmers' Brewery Company, Everton, near Bawtry, were fined 10 each and costs at Retford last week, under the Food and Drugs Act, for per- mitting to be used in the manufacture of beer ingredients injurious to public health. The County Councir of Nottingham were the prosecutors. The triennial elections of County Councils and Parish Councils will take place on Saturday, March 2nd, and arrangements for contests are in progress in various narts of the district. Up to the present, however, but little interest is manifested in Cardigan- shire generally. Keen contests are anti- cipated in several districts in Montgomeiy and Merioneth. We are frequently reminded nowadays that the great wars of the future will be industrial rather than military and that they will have to be fought with brains much more than with muscle but the managers of the Brecon Intermediate School evidently think otherwise, for at their meeting last Friday, it was resolved to form a cadet corps in connection with the boys' school. The uniforms and rifles to be. provided by public subscriptions. Mr Justice Bigham, in his charge to the grand jury at the Liverpool Assizes,. briefly touched on somp of the causes which had tended to bring about the great reduction in crime which had been seen during the past century. Among these causes were education, work, and good wages And there was. he thought, one other cause-the diminution in the rigour with which the law was administered. The sentences meted out to men, women, and children a hundred years ago were appalling in their severity, and one could not help recognising that they had failed to deter people from committing crime. The moie humane system of to. day kept open to those who had strayed away from honesty the door of hope, and had materially contributed to the present state of things. Mr Thomas Edwards who was elected the other week to succeed Mrs Holland as chairman of the Governors of Dr Williams' School, Dolgelley, is a well-known and prosperous Liverpool merchant doing ex- tensive business in the wholesale woollen trade. He is a staunch Nonconformist and a deacon with the Calvinistic Methodists worshipping at Princess-road. Although Mr Edwards has not se/ered his connection with the city mart, he spends the greater part of his time in comparative retirement among his native hills of Merioneth, and lives at Blaenau, about two miles outside the county town on the Bala road. He has given much-needed material support to the Dolgelley County School, and now that he is interesting himself in the cause of educa- tion generally a wide neighbourhood wish him a long life. The Watch Committee of the Manchester Corporation have issued to the Press the result of an investigation into the extraordinary charges made by the Chief Constable against two magistrates. A publican having been reported for serving a drunken woman the two magistrates endeavoured to induce the superintendent of the police division, and subsequently the Chief Constable of the Manchester Police Force to withdraw the case. Upon this proving unsuccessful they adjudicated upon the case. The Chief Constable entered a protest, and applied for an adjournment, which was agreed to, the magistrates immediately leaving the bench, although there were other cases to try. The Chief Constable brought the case forward with a view to showing the difficulty the police experienced in dealing with the licensing cases. The Watch Committee decided to report the circumstances to the Chancellor of the Duchy and the Home Office. It is confidently expected by various financial authorities that further supplies for the war will be necessary before the er.d of the current financial year. If so, the expenditure will probably reach a figure un- paralleled in English history. The despatch of the 30,000 mounted men is one source of special expenditure for February and March.. The great efforts made in Cape Colony to equip volunteers to resist the Boer invasion will doubtless now lead to a very lavish outlay. It is pointed, out also that the equipment of the five columns- which, are attempting to "net" Botha must have involved great expense. It may be pointed out that all these signs are likely to be heralds not only of a bigger deficit for the current year, but also of a very heavy addition to taxation in that which is to come. How the new burdens will be dis- tributed nobody seems to have the faintest notion, but one should not be surprised if cocoa and coffee suffered even more than, the a a tea which is being so eagerly taken out of bond. The growth of expenditure will make it very difficult for Sir Michael Hicks- Beach to resist the demand for the repeal of the Agricultural Rates Act. Will it incline him to listen to, the Protectionists ?: The King has already shown, on more than one occasion, that he is no worshipper of precedent,, but can make a precedent for himself when necessary. It is to be hoped (says the "Morning Leader") that he will see fit to put down that debased form of alleged sport, dear to Cockney tradesmen learning to ride, known as 11, stag-hunting." A more correct description is tame deer hunting, and the quarry has often to be pushed or dragged along the road before its pursuers can induce it to spike itself on some fence or railings. The Rev J. Stratton, of Wokingham, who has con- sistently, and persistently, denounced this cowardly barbarity, states that he knows positively that the late Quen was strongly opposed to "stag-hiintirg." We can well believe it—and we cannot imagine that the King can look with approval on this vulgar parody of sport. Queen Alexandra's love of animals has been known and read of all men for many a year, and surely she must regard the performances of the followers of the Royal Buckhounds with scornand detestation, A word from the throne would end the miserable and disgraceful business. Mr David Davies, of Plas Dinam, grand- son of the late Mr David Davies, M.P. for Cardiganshire, attains his majority shortly, and a committer has been formed to cele- brate the event. The Llanbrvnmair Parish Council has decided to send to tl1 landowners of the parish a letter pointing out that the decrease in the population of the parish is due, not to scarcity of work, but of workmen's dwellings, especially in the Lower Ward, and the difficulty of gettieg freehold or leasehold sites for building. In his annual report to the Aberystwyth Town Council on Tuesday, Dr Thomas, the medical officei- of health, reviewed the satis- factory progress which had been made by the town during the past ten years, and referred to the need of an isolation hospital. There were 500 more houses in the Borough now than at the commencement of the decade. At the Lampeter Petty Sessions last week, Lieut. Colonel Da vies-Evans, lord-lieutenant of Cardiganshire, was summoned by the Surveyor of the Lampeter Rural Council, for neglecting to comply with a notice requiring him to prune hedges.. The lord-lieutenant who conducted his defence personally, stated that he was-not the occupier of many of the hedges, and the surveyor had failed to specify what hedges required cutting, al- though he had been requesed to do so. He also submitted that as the trees were on his demense and ornamental trees, the surveyor should have specifically. informed defendant what was needed to be done. Mr. Pryse, Bwlchbychan, who was defendant in a similar case, wrote stating that he was not the occupier of hedgea,speeified in the summons. The case was adjftrned for the attendance of the defendant of his representative. Four similar cases against farmeis, were dismissed on defendants paying their own costs.
CARDIGAN DISTRICT LETTER. LITERARY COMPETITION. A Literary Competition will shortly be announced under the auspices of the Cardi- gan Literary and Debating Society, sub- stantial prizes in books being offered by Mr Augustus Brigstocke, of the value of: First, £3 10s.; second, £1; and third, 10s.; together with minor prizes io meritorious competitors. The competition will be open to Cardigan and district, and will call for the study of three books, viz., Ivanhoe," Westward Ho," and Esmond," with the view to the preparation of an essay upon one of them not exceeding. 4,000 word's an analysis of another not exceeding 1,000 words; and replies to a series of questions on the third book, the books for the sevemi tests being chosen the first week in October. Papers must then reach Mr. Brigstocke by the first post on October 17th,. and the results will be declared, and the prises awarded, at the opening meeting of the Literary Society next session. Full1 parti- culars of the competition will be issued. "THE REIGN OF TERROR." The syllabus of the Cardigan Literary and Debating Society includes several lectures by well-known people. Mr. Morgan- Richardson's reputation as a speaker is not merely local, and it was a stroke of good fortune for the Society to enlist: his assist- ance. Last week he lectured on "The Reign of Terror," a subject which he treated with the precision and exhaustiveness of a master. It is understood that he has made a close study of the French Revolution for many years, and by lecturing he performs a real service in leavening the literary alenaest in town. It was intended to illustrate,, to, some extent, the lecture by means of lantern slides, but the operator discovered at the very last moment that the oxygen cylinder was exhausted, owing to a defective fitting. Nothing disconcerted, however, Mr. Morgan- Richardson proceeded, and held the- platform for nearly two hours, keeping, the attention of his large audience rivetted to-the subject. Later in the session he is to,. liooture on Napoleon," in continuation of his previous lectures. On the 26th inst:, Capt. Jones Parry, .of Tyllwyd, Newcastle Einlyn, will lecture on "The Sikhs and, Silth Wars," a subject of which he has personal knowledge. and he will no doubt receive, as he always I does at Cardigan, a warm reception. HISTORIC PIOTUJEUSi. Those who are interested in Citrdigan may obtain interesting souvenirsfrolllt any of the local photographers of the ProeJamation of King Edward VII. The picture with the best definition is that published by Allen. It is marred, however,, in one detail. With all due respect to the powers that be, it is hardly dignified for the- Town to be represented in its Corporate capacity on ,such an historic occasion, raised above the he ids of the people on beer barrels! A shillingsworth of drapery would have saved such an unsightly arrangement being ,preserved,. pictorially,, for, the edification of posterity. THJI. "ROYAL BED." For some weeks past Mr A. L. Monckton, the Travelling Secretary of the Royal Alfred Aged Merchant Seamen's Institution, has been staying in Cardigan with the view to organizing local committees in the various centres along; the Coast, from Aberystwyth to St. David's, with Honorary Officers, so as to reduce- the working expenses of the Institution. Generally speaking, the greatest difficulty which Mr Monckton has had to face is the apathy of the public, and that where least expected. He has, however, made decided progress, having been very favourably received in Cardigan and the. district, and although the arrangements have not yet been completed, lie has secured the, support of ti i i, Mayor (Mr D. Ivor Evans) Mr MOTgan-Richardson, Mr Beynon Evans Mr William, Woodward, Mr William Lewis* Lloyd's Bank Mr R. E. Jones, N.P. Bank ;• the Rev R. R. Jenkins, Llangoedmore; and the Rev Hugh Jones, St. Dogmell's. Mr Morgan-Jones, town clerk, will continue a& Hon. Sec; and the future should be safe in his hands, The Dean of St. David's ihi reply to an application for his support said. that he could not mix up in "parochial" matters It is surprising that the Dean should be so ill-informed, for" the 1toyal Alfred Institution is the only Institution in the United Kingdom which gives,irres- pective of rank, creed, ports of service, or place of abode—a Home, or Pension, to the British Merchant Sailor when old and destitute." This substantial facs should enlist sympathisers everywhere. Many aged Cardigan Sailors have good reason to bless. the Royal Alfred," as a substantial: amount is paid a way every year to local annuitants. while only a bf-ggarly pittance has hitherto been subscribed to the funds. In corres- ponding with the Customs Officer at Aber- ■ystvvyth, Mr Monckton has been assured that it is impossible to forai a Committee ot Aberystwyth." Fortunately Mr Monckton is not made of the material to take assurances of this kind, and backed as he has been in other places Aberystwyth is not likely to lag behind. Aberystwyth has her poor "\l(\etl if it is only poor old Clayton. TELEPATF,
