THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 3, 1897.
, We are tilcascd to no hat this
effort which Is belnp inu to net
Wales recognized on the lloynl Arms
tintl tho Nntlonal Standard Is recelvIiiR
widespread support. Tho Cardiff Coun
cil has distributed a largo number of
circulars to tho local governing bodies
of tho Principality, nnd there nre ninny
Blgns that the request for support will
bo forthcoming. A very successful
meeting on the question was held dur
ing the week at tho South Wales Uni
versity College, when tho Marquis of
Buto was Invited to become President
of the Committee, and It was decided
to secure the aid o every representa
tive body In Wales to petition the
Privy Council In favor of Including
Wales among the emblems and heral
dic signs representing the British na
tion. In the year when so many grac
ious acts are expected to be performed
by the Queen, It mny fall out that
Wales will receive due recognition as
nn Integrnl nnd nn Important portion
of Great Britain. Wales has been ne
glected too long, but that Is as much
the fault of Wales and her representa
tives ns It Is of the national Govern
ment. Why should Wales alone of the
constituent portions of Great Britain
be neglected? England, Scotland and
Ireland aro duly and fully represented.
Not, surely, because Wales has no na
tional emblems? There is the red
dragon and leek, and there are druldl
cal sign which might be drawn
upon In lieu of anything better. Hut
the neglect Is not duo to any luck of
emblems or of national signs; It Is
rather the consequence of misunder
standing and ignorance of the country
nnd tho people. We need not remind
our readers how AVnles was neglected
by Royalty, how Wales was left with
out any adequate system of education.
These things, happily, belong to. the
past, nnd Wales can afford to let the
past bury Us dead. We live In tho
present and for the future, and we see
how great a change has come over the
spirit of the scene during tho last two
decades. Wales today is not the ne
glected and unknown nation she was
then. She has a fine educational sys
tem, threo University Colleges, and a
a national University to crown the ed
ucational monument. And lower down
than these, but equally Impoitant, Is
the system of Intermediate or Secon
dary education, with a fine network
of schools that are being erected over
the country. The old spirit of exclu
slveness, fostered by the neglect of the
rulers of the country, Is fast disap
pearing, is already dead indeed, nnd
we have the better spirit, the right nt
tltudo for advancement displayed today
in the demand for recognition of Wales
on the Royal Arms and the National
Standard. We are constantly declaring
that Wales Is not understood, and we
have another proof of the fact In a
work from the pen of Sir Walter
Besant on "The Rise of the Empire."
The view which ho holds of Wales,
If at all general, may well account for
the neglect of the country and the-misunderstanding
which exists. For the
benefit of our readers we will produce
the whole paragraph in which he states
his opinion of Wales". The novelist
is writing "history" and not fiction.
nnd this Is what he says after summar
ising the storv of the conquest of
Wales: "Now, what have we done
with AVnles? Althouch we have Im
posed our laws upon the country the
people remain still in their mountains
as they always have done; they main
tain their own language, their customs,
superstitlons.llterature, traditions; they
do not court the friendship of the
Saxon; they do all they can to keep
apart. In other words, extension (of
empire) in the direction of Wales is as
Illusory as In the direction of France."
Such a statement as this is manifestly
absurd on the face of it. A century ago
It would have had some semblance of
truth, but today there Is nothing in it
but fiction. AVnles loves Its traditions,
Its language, and literature still, but
not In the sense In which Sir Walter
Besant Implies. If any nnswer were
needed to this farrago of misrepresen
tation, It is provided in tho unanimous
demand of AVales forrecognltion of the
Principality on the Royal Arms and
the National Standard. This does not
Indicate excluslveness and hatred of
the Saxon, but a desire to be account

In existence. It was written by Aneurin,
who lived in the eurly part of the sixth
century. It contains upwards of 000

heroic poem have been printed In
English. The title of the poem is from
the "Ostadlnl," which was tho name of
that tribe of Britons to which Aneurin
belonged. The original version Is print

The Drych, the National organ of the

grave mistake by stating that the

dence, received his nom de plume from
a source which would be In direct vio
lation of all Bardic rules. But the In
tention of the "squib" had a double
intention like many of the double D's
worn by persons nowadays. Fortunate
ly, however, the "squib" amounted to
nothing. Neither do tho double D's
simply a gravitation kite. Mr. Jehu re
ceived his nom de plume from Thomas
Cilcenln Evans, B. B. D., of Nantlcoke,
Pa., an authorized representative of
the Gorsedd In America, and was as
sisted In the ceremony by Mr. John D.
R. Richards, (Ehedydd Teilo), of the

a public statement. It will be to his In

As illustrating the popularity among
the clergy of the appointment of Dr.
Owen to the bishopric of St. David's,
It Is pointed out that while in 1874 nt

there were only 40 of the clergy of the
diocese present, fully three times that
number assembled to witness the en
thronement of Bishop Owen.
This retort. It appears, has been
called forth by the protest of a Car

assumption of the vicar that Noncom

other religious services, hold a position
of Inferiority of the latest Importation

Conan Doyle lias done nothing bet
ter In fiction than "Uncle Bernao"
(published by the Appletons, New

a revision and enlargement of the story
that ran as the serial In tho Cosmopoli

and this augmentation has very per
ceptibly Improved the symmetry and
fine artistic finish of the work. In "Un
cle Bcrnac" Dr. Doylo continues to
delve In the Napoleonic period, and In
fact makes the little miracle-worker
from Corsica the real center of his
story. As a story the book is not of
great consequence, albeit cleverly
planned and made very Interesting by
the brilliancy of the author's descrip

have hitherto been penned on the "mnn

much distinctness as If we were habi

of the artistic novel as a mode of In

balancing of old scores and a new

particular embodiment of the forego

Mr. Prentice Fry, of Meadvillc, testifies'
"My wife nnd daughter have been fallinff
in health for roinn time and the treatments
of physicians in their cafes have been fruit
less. So much 1ms been inid of Dr. AVilliams'l
Pink Pills for Pale People that I resolved to
try them, nnd myself nnd family will ulwnW
be glnd that Providence threw such a medi
cine in our way. The pnlc faces and wasted
cheeks of my wife nnd daughter have disap
peared, nnd the ruddy plow of health has
reappeared. Pen cannot record my feelings
in the matter, nnd nil I can ray Is that I
trust nil who are bowed down by the heavy
hand of physical infirmity will lesrn that
thrro is a remedy that cures nnd places suf
fering humanity where tliey can enjoy this
enrthlv existence. God bless the maker of
Dr. AVIlllsms' Pink Pills for Pale Teople."
