Briefly their ground for action is that!
'llie ministers utterly refused to giv.i us
any pledge that they mean to press the
flisehianlislimeut bill through this session."
As opposed to tins it is interesting to
quote Lord B Mbarjr'ii trenchant reply.
llie prime minister said: ".Ml lean say
is this, that if it is truo that thoy do not
trust our promises in the matter,
if they do not believe that, as 1
confidently assert ou this occa-ion and will
again, I hope, before wo meet the country,
that we shall njeet it with a measure of
Welsh disestablishment passed through
the house of Commons, 1 cannot control
its fato after it haves the house of com
mons, referring to the house of lordsi I say
if they don't believe in that pledge, it they
don't believe in our honor and our honosty,
the sooner they carry their threats inti
effect i he hotter I shall ho pleased." Mr.
Tom Ellis, M, K chief Libel al whip and
the most promioent Welsh member, has
also given most definite pledges on behalf
of tho government, that the measure wili
be pasted through the lowor houso. Wales
is, therefore, for the first time in the hls
torv of the Wtdsb Liberal party, witness
ing a spectsoleof division, which happen
ing at a critical period, may retard the
progress of the greatest Welsh measure of
modern times. The revolting members,
howevor, have enthusiastic supporters and
vehement opponents iu their protest
against tho ministers.
Tho death of the late John Roberts. Now
