A couple 01 dog rights in the suburbs yes- terday seemed to in.dic.atc that it has been relaxed at any rave. —o: — If the number of cases of drunkenness at the local Police Court on Tuesday is anything to go by, the anniversary of the Armistice was nght royally kept up by many people. -:0:- Is the cult of thy upper lip decoration coming back into general ifshion again:' At the Go we. i' Council on Tuesday, amongst V all the members and utticiah there was only one gentleman clean shaven. -:0;- Two girls dressed as Jack Tars held a celebration of their own on Tuesday nisrhr, as they marched up and down High-street. But they wore" whitlit ducks "-not very warm for the winter. -;0;- A gentleman coming out of a local res- taurant yesterday seemed to be on good terms with liimself. He had had a good meal, he said, something new, but he could not say what it was,. Couki it have been butter ? — :0:— A rare bird vL*sitol- a golden-crested wren—after a perilous flight across tne North Sea. from its home m Scandinavia, bus arrived in a London city garden. to toy not one of our e-portfi- men shot iti — :0:— A young lady assistant in chop yesterday, not noticing the had ceaeed work for two minutes, sud- denly shouted out "sign pleaseTho other assistants c-oald not restrain thetn- tclves from laughing. -0:- This is the weather for livening up everybody. Tassers-by near Fulton's Cot- tage, at the l'arkuull end of f'airwoui Common could have been highly amused at the gambolling of two big stoats in th* centre of the road yesterday. —. • • — i A correspondent writes complin/jig that in a roconr ton of coal he received nearly half ot it is .-lag. Yet I was charged the extra six shillings" h« add. Judging by this compla/iit, we should say that nowadays coal is no. what it seamj 1 -;0:- SOBle. hardy individuals did their best :-ua l s clid th-Ir bt, t la-st night to ma.ko a noist to oeiebrata the anniversary of the ajniis'ice. But the fireworks display was vorv anarnno compared w:h twelve months ago. io fact, in ill* language of the Army, it A-ai a washout 1" ￼ —.0:— I A Townhill man, who 18,t night con- s»;antly hashes of fight over tn« town, and explosions all over the town below, thou gat; at first to at. the town wa.s b;v.rtg bemoardeu J}y jomf unexpected foe. Then he suddenly remembered cnat it w,ts Aravtf.uce nigTit.

And ♦iiero was no prouder kiddie in tho acli--oi, although. soniQ were very weil I. dressed in characteristic costumes. 06. A Swansea choral society, winch is practising the opera Blodwen," had a freezing" reception last night, who* they got to tho schoolroom, where they bold rehearsals. There was no fire, and alter a brave, hours' attempt, the party adjourned. Now they are looking for a place with a fire in, -:0:- Resolvenites are still patting themselves on the back over their display against Neath. At several times during the game the outlook appeared quite black for the All Blacks. It is an open secret that their opponents' supporters had banded themselves together and put their shirts (to the tune of a few hundred Br.,II, on their favourites. A little circle of Swansea friends were discussing economies in a certain centie last night. "Take coal, for instance," paid one of the debaters, pressing his argu- i ment. I' wish I could," interrupted another membor of the party. I eoold do wt.h a bit during this Arctic weather." And he was evidently speaking feelingly. -:0:- Touching on the desirability of booming Swansea, as a port, a well-known local business man said yesterday that if the men at the Docks went on winning com- pliments from shipowners they appear to have done in one notable case last week, an amount of good would be done which would result in incalculable benefits accruing to the town. — :<J A Swansea schoolboy, when he was told hv his teacher the programme for Armis- tice Day anniversary and. at first, that it did not include a h ok day, askeo how, without, one, they were going to remember I the day. Hk mother would probably have rep« ed that holidays were so usual on the occasions that he would better 1 remember the day it. for once, he lmd-tj remain at school. -'0'- Erom a correspond;?!—A statistician makes tho Llanellv people out to be very wasteful with their water. He sayi they use 1,637 gallons every year, mL which 0-i-1 gallons were sold to tha various works. This leayes 693 gallons for household use in a year by about 2.:5.000 people. That is, they use nearly a pint of water each iu four yearb! No wonder so many works have been closed down when water has been squandered at that rate! A Swansea ex-soldier declared yester- day that. he would rather he undertaking hifcks and obligations of a ratepayer in good old Abevtawe than be where he was" twelve jnonths ago. On November 11, 1918, he as a. prisoner of war. attached to a working party in Rtrassbnrg, where numhl'r of German roldiers, turning on their officer?, had caused a riot. And although, p a spectator, bo eninym il,'o fun, yet h'- orefers being, as he put it,. in the dorf old place where the rates are high and the laverbread it plentiful." — :0 He was an old Welshman appro-,ic-liinit the oentury. To what 4o you attribute, your long life and good health, Mr. Mor- gan?" asked a gentleman (v,-ho knew him already by repute). Well, I don't know, indeed, sir," said Sir. Morgan, but I do think I had a beitey chance than most of you younger people had. For the first fifty rears of my l.f? there was no germs, eir; there was no microlies then. They cnnii" in in the fifties, sir, ro far a* I ie- rieml>pr. So I had very near thirty or forty free from that. whatever!

THE MIND OF A BISHOP. The Bishop of St. Davids has been good .enough to sen,i us a copy of his Statement to the St. Davids Diocese on the acceptance of the Welsh Church Temporalities Act, 1919." It covers over fifty closely-printed pages, and we can-1 not hope to deal, here, with all its arguments and figures; but we are 'I ,ir,y u m e n t,, ambitious to show from it, if we can, how tho mind of a bishop worked during a great crisis, and bovv it carne to a great decision. The statement of course go back to the original controversy and to the passage into law of the first Act. Is it too difficult for our readers t-o re-construct those turbu- j lent days in Wales, the favoured days when a Welsh Church Bill wa.s the most, exciting business before the nation:) v, e have passed through deep waters since, through tem- pests that have rocked the founda- tion of our being. We have a new perspective. But with an effort we can recall the heated air, the cries toy repeal, the positive as- surances of dignitaries and poli- ticians that the Act could never re- main among the statutes of the country. The war came, and changed everything. The cries of 1914 were one with Nineveh and tyre. We tried, often, in these columns to assure the nervous among the disestablishment, party tbat the .at to deal with tho issues arising after the war would be in mood, and would have no time, to turn to the ques- tiln of repeal. So, we find from the Statement, the Bishop of St. David's decided for himself. The filiation Lile writes] now is not it was in 1911. It is a new world after the War, and other great questions occupy the mmds of the people. The situation fit the last General Ejection, in tJu: judgment, of experienced friends will quahfiod to judgf, made it quite imprac- hcab?c to make the Welsh Church Act a decisive issue. The great and jrrowin<c kiei-isive I'lie gr(,at ,inr-l i:,u(' upon which the General Election would turn, whether it would come before the j date of Disestablishment or not, would have put it quite out of the question ill ,Iiy i r I my judgment to expect that the attention of the people could be sufficiently con- centrated upon the principle of Disen- dowment to make it anything like one of the decisive issues at t he polis. Tho Bishop is n. fighter, but he :s more, than a fighter, he is a Christia.n statesman; and we are proud to think that, during the hottest phases of the battle, the Loader" never lo-st and never failed to express, its admiration d Dr. Owen as a leader of the flock. And thus we arc not surprised to see tbat. he accepts the fact of disestab- lishment—always to us the supreme abject of the Welsh struggle—with Christian grace—and shall we say courage ? We say with courage," with a Gladstonian anecdote quoted by-the Bishop in our thoughts. At one of several conversations which it was my great privilege to have with Mr. Gladstone, through his kindness during j the three years I once asked him what would he flif, of Welsh Disestablishment. He said with great solemnity, Death, but after death, R«v fcurrrction. Welshmen outside the Establish- ment who knew the filial feeling that filled many breasts towards "the old mother always declared that Dis establishment would mean not death, but increased life, to the, Church: and we are glad to see that, the Bishop is alive to the advan- tage a free church will exercise in Wales: 1 api firmly convinced now that the iohs controversy is over at last, that. the profepoctjj the Church exercising a growing'in»!ue:K-e for gocx1 upon Wales as a wholems more hopeful at the present, tnne than ii has been for many genera- • i.;ns. The Bishop postulates two condi- tions of spiritual life with which we need not deal here; but we believe they are certain of fulfilment. Into the financial issue we have no intention of going, further than to record his arithmetical working out of the position under the Tom. pcralitios Act: I. rde- (hi- Bill the Church in Wales a year in income from its I anojeut endowments. Without tho Bill the corresponding loss would have l*PJ1! at lst £ 102,000 a year. The Bill, there- fore, restores to the Church at tea? C5J.OOO a year of its lost property. This rurely is a substantial mitigation. As far as we are concerned, the long controversy is closed; the next stage is to get the Welsh Free Churches, which will, presently, include the Church in Wales, to work in perfect 'harmony. The Bishop says that It must take time to beaJ the efifeefcs of fifty years of controversy. But I am cer- tain that had we rejected the terms of settlement offered by the Government, tbsrs would have been no hope of any process dt better understanding and greater good-will between Churchmen and Neaeonforraists in Wales 'making much progress in this gene,ration That would have been s great disaster for the whale cause of religion in Wales. It would indeed. Let us thank the I Bishop that he has been brave enough to artrt the disaster.
