OUR NEW DEPARTURE. This week we present to our readers the "Pembroke County Guardian" in a more con- venient form than the somewhat unwieldly sheet with which they have become familiar. This step had long been contemplated, but could not be effected until we were in a posi- tion to carry it out without seriously diminish- ing the supply of news. That time has now arrived. The constantly increasing circulation of the paper brings such a demand upon our advertising space that we have been able, as old contracts expired, to increase our scale of charges, and at the same time reduce the space devoted to the cheaper class of advertise- ments. In this way and by setting our news in a more compact form we shall be able to con- tinue to give our readers that full and com- plete service of county and local news which has made the "County Guardian" what it is to-day, the recognised County Paper for Pem- brokeshire. Moreover, as time goes on we hope to add new and interesting features to the paper and thus fully maintain its reputation as one of the best country weekly papers in South Wales.
OUR WELSH COLUMN. We are pleased to be able to announce that our Welsh Column will be revived next week under the able editorship of a distinguished Welsh scholar and one time journalist, now re- siding in Pembrokeshire. Adequate space will be devoted to this department, which will be- come, we feel sure, one of the most important features of the paper under the guidance of ite new editor. Special attention will be given to subjects relating to Welsh literature and Welsh Nationalistic movements. All who wish to send contributions to this department are requested to address their communications to The Welsh Editor, "County Guardian" Office, Haverford- west.
PROFESSOR REES ON THE LAND QUESTION. EVILS OF PRIVATE OWNERSHIP. "To the Editor of the "County Guardian." Sir, .Those who, like myself, follow events in Pembrokeshire through the medium of the Press, must have been puzzled and confused by an incident which attracted considerable attention in the county some' weeks ago: The caprice or interests of the paper which reached me at Bangor prevented me from obtaining a consistent account of what actually happened. Now that Mr. Davies is not in the county, perhaps you will allow me (however inade- quately) to support him in his protest-against the evils of landlordism. And this I am able to dft on the two-fold ground that my own experience corroborates all that Mr, Davies has said and that the question is one of vital im- portance in this County. I am not sure how far Mr. Davies would go in his condemnation of landlordism. I un. derstand that he made many exceptions in favour of our great County landlords in his speech at Haverfordwest. For my own part, I am more concerned about the possibilities for exercising a tyranny than about the benevol- ence displayed in some quarters. If a great number of landlords did not recognise that ownership involved obligations as well as rights our present system could not last a day. But the case Mr. Davies appears to have in mind is of this lmd :-A man has made a fortune in business and has invested it in land as a safe and profitable security. He finds that ownership of land gives him extensive powers over the lives of the tenants. He exacts such a high rent that the tenant is inevitably ground down. He takes advantage of "land hunger" and enters into sordid bargainings with men anxious to rent land. He uses his prerogative right of serving a notice to quit when he has completed his bargain with his prospective tenant. And so the process goes on-the ten- ant in possession is in constant fear of notice, his abject position before the landlord is only equalled by the fawning of the person who wishes to supplant him. The picture is a dark one, but we should be wrong if we supposed that it only presents us with the unedifying spectacle of a tyrant and a slave. This is much more than a personal question and a study of character. What of the land itself on which our lives depend? The tenant can- not do his duty by it; he is forced to get what he can out of it while he is in possession. Mr. W. J. Roberts described the effect in his lec- ture at Haverfordwest last week: "The agricul- tural produce of this country had a tendency to grow dearer and dearer, thus showing that our country is inadequately cultivated, or cul- tivated by too few hands." This, then, is a question which ought to occupy our minds. We should not rest until the agricultural lab- our has all enlightened interest in the problem of the land. He may owe everything to the agitation which Mr. Davies has so nobly started. The moral sense of the community is on the side of this protest. The day is gone when a landlord can reiterate the old creed of anarchy that a man can do what he likes with his own. It should be remembered that the private ownership of land can only be recognised by a healthy state as long as it has some justifica- tion. The chief plea in favour of private pro- perty is that an owner is more likely to exert himself to get the best out of the land than a mere employe of the state would be. But the arugment is meaningless when the owner is a mere receiver of a rack rent. This introduction of 'sweating' methods into rural society is one of the greatest curses of the time. Land is deteriorating, produce is becoming dearer, and the comparative permanence of country life is disturbed. It is by facing this problem that we shall get the people back to the land and do something to remedy overcrowding in cities and crying evils of unemployment. Again, I acknowledge my indebtness to Mr. Gwilym Davies, and appeal to the people of this county to remember his message, I am Sir, Yours sincerely, J. T. REES. 46, Dewsland Street, Milford Haven.
TREFCARN OWEN. A very successful oncert was held at Treff- garn Owen Schoolroom on December 30th, and was well attended. The concert had been got up entirely by Miss Roch, of Llethr, the pro- ceeds to be devoted towards Brawdy Church Fund. Miss Roeli had got together a splendid array of artistes, with a capital programme, and th? success of the concert to a great mea- sure must be attributed to her. The duties of chairman were efficiently carried out by Col. Roch, Llethr, who heartily thanked the per. formers and all present for their support, wish. ing them all a very happy New Year. The Rev. J. T. Griffiths, B.D., vicar, proposed a hearty vote of thanks to the chairman, and to Miss Roch for getting up such a pleasant en- tertainment. The accompanists for the even- ing were Mrs. Webb, Mrs. Lewis, Miss Roch, and Mr. Arthur Griffiths. The contributors to the programe were:—Miss Webb, Miss S. Evans, Miss Watts, Mr. and Mrs. Lewis, Mrs. Watts Williams, Mr. Gough Lewis, Mrs. Evans, Miss Hilda Thomas, Mr. R. Massy. Mr. Emlyn Thomas, the Penycwm Party and the Troedy- Thiw Party.
THE LIBERAL THREE HUN! RED. To the Editor of the "County Guardian," Sir,—The speeches of my fellow deacona fit the meeting of the Three Hundred in Bethda. Schoolroom last week sent me to our minister to ask him if to wish to injure and to rob waa a phrase of the New Theology and a new doc- trine of the Free Churches. He asked me what I meant. "Tell me," said I, "what exactly is meant by calling the Church of England & State Church?" "They don't understand what- they mean," said he. And he took down from his library shelf, Freeman, J. R. Green, and. Duschne. and one or two other histories. This is what he read: "The Church of England wa'. not founded by the State; it is not a political creation; it does not derive its e-ssential laws, from the State. It was not established by Act of Parliament. It was in existence in Wales* and in England before there ever was a Par- liament. Its organisation was in full worki order before the Heptarchy was united unden one King." That is a true statement of facts as given by the best historians. "But," said I, "why is the King called the Head of the Churchy" In 1534 an Act was passed by which the King was recognised "p. the only supreme Head on earth next and immediately under God." It does not mean that the King claimed any spiritual office of any power over the Church of England. By the 39 Articles the Church of England' claims to have a spiritual mission and author- ity, neither derived from nor commencable to the State. She acknowledges in the head of the State that power only over ecclesiastical persons and causes which she believes to be within the rightful province of all Christian Governments.—Note this :—We Nonconformist ministers and our chapels are as much subject to the supremacy of the King as the clergy and-, their churches. The King is Head of the State over all persons and in all causes within the realm; and in no other sense is the King the Head of the Church of England. That means that Nonconformist chapels and minis- ters are as much under State authority and control as churches and clergy. The Book of Common Prayer was not drawn up by the State but by the Church. The 39' Articles were not drawn up by the State but by the Church, just as the formularies of faith of the Calvinistic Methodist have been drawn up by the founders of Methodism. The "Cyffes Fydd" is as binding upon Methodists as the- 39 Articles are binding upon Churchmen, and there is nothing in the constitution of the Established Church to compel it when the law of the realm differs from the divine law to accept the former as its rule, any more than there is in the constitution of the Calvinistic body. If a Nonconformist minister disobeyed, the rules of his particular denomination and it was necessary to deprive or suspend him-it could only be enforced by the Civil Courts. So- that the Nonconformist ministers like the clergy are under the rule of the State. "Is it," I asked, 'love for the Church that makes the delegates of the Three Hundred so wishful for Disestablishment?" "Nonsense! You don't harm, and injure, and misrepresent those you love," said our minister. The real cause of opposition to the Church of England is political. I am ashamed to say that Nonconformist ministers and deacons are daily becoming more political: they prostitute re- ligion for political ends. Hardly a Free Church meeting is held but what political subjects are discussed. The majority of delegates on the Liberal Three Hundred are deacons and minis- ters. They wish to cripple the Church for un- worthy mottoes. We Nonconformists know that our Sunday Schools are empty of young men, and once the Sunday School was the pride of the Welshman. We find the greatest difficulty in getting young men to pray at our week night prayer meetings. Prayer meetings, in fact, have ceased to exist in scores of our chapels. Our chapels are in debt. Our ministers are badly paid. Ag- nosticism is increasing. Hundreds of our young men in Haverfordwest and Milford never enter a place of worship. And yet we squabble and fight, and under the cloak of religion wish to injure the work of a Church to which we owe our parish churches, our churchyards, our Cathedrals, and our Schools. Disestablishment in Ireland has been a bitter failure. It has strengthened Romanism in Ireland and has created the bitterest antagonism between class and class, and sect and sect. DEACON JOHN.

AFTER A SHARE OUT. Five country youths were, at Holt (Norfolk) Petty Sessions recently, sent to prison for varying terms of hard labour for an aggravated assault on a policeman. All five men had been to a goose club sharing out, and on meeting the constable one of them attempted to knock the officer's lamp out of his hand. In a struggle which ensued the constable fell and the other defendants kicked and otherwise aided in the attack.

THE BEAR AND THE BOY. Some years ago (says a writer) I was in the Zoological Gardens, when an urgent message was received that a pet bear, that had just mauled a stable boy, should be at once re- moved from some neighbouring barracks. The old bear-keeper said to me: 'I know bears and I know boys-nasty little beasts. No one will ever know what that poor bear suffered before he turned on the boy. I'm all for the bear!" There is no work so tirin' as danglin' about, and starin' and not rightly knowin' what you're goin' to do next, and keepin' your face in smilin' order like a grocer on market day.- George Eliott.
