I Sh S IShaws Superman
I Sh S I S haw s S uperman. I ADDRESS AT MERTHYR f BROTH-ERHOOD. Before the Merthyr Central Brother- hood last Sunday afternoon, at the Temperance HAJI -1 Mr. D. R. Prosser delivered an address upon The Super- man." Mr. Langford was in the chair. The conception of the Superman." said the speaker, was in most minds linked up with the name of Mr. George Bernard Shaw. It was well that the philosophy of this genius from Ireland should be examined in a treatment of the subject in hand, for out of his conception of the" Superman Bernard, Shaw had evolved his experi- mentalist interpretation of the Creative -Foi-ce or God. This idea of a some- thing to be still higher in the creative scheme than man, and nobler, held an important position in the rxhilosophy of the ancients. From time to time it had been revived, with various trimmings, and all that Shaw was doing was to weave around the central idea the Shavian robe of unorthodoxy. His con- ceits of style, or rather dialectics, were a heavy handicap upon Shaw's interpre- tation of life becoming popular. Nevertheless, the impartial would dis- cover many basic truths in his writings, not to say many baseless assertions. And the latest of these was that God was a mere experimenter, whose know- ledge must be built up piece-meal, as was that of the trained researcher. And in the succession of trials in peopling the planet, God would ultimately achieve the superman for which the world—and Shaw—were looking. Was it not poor reasoning which, purporting to be based on the evolutionary prin- ciple, brought in the experimental idea of creation ? For experiment admitted the liability to failure, partial or com- plete; and if the latter, then an en- tirely new, humanly inconceivable order of things would succeed the present— an order of things bearing no relation to the existing, having no antecedents, a fresh beginning, and therefore unin- fluenced by laws of evolution. And it sbouiu Lo marked that, Man and Superman" was "expressly intended to be a revelation of the modern re- ligion of evolution." But the speaker held, the ground of all hope for the human race lay in the inevitability of the superman. Not in an after-life spirit man, nor in the coming of an- other creature higher than man, but in the unfolding of the soul's poten- tialities, would be discovered the superman over which all ages had philosophised and strained the process of reasoning. Before he speculated upon the superman to be, Bernard Shaw should have defined" man." Which was the man in the personality which, at different periods in its exist- ence. descended to the basest lust and savagery, and rose to the levels of purity, honour, and integrity To the speaker, it seemed there was a poten- tial superman in each of us, most nearly approximated the closer became our relationship to Jesus Christ. And by personal rectitude the fathering and mothering of the race held great pro- mise of improving the species, each suc- ceeding generation, under such condi- tions of parenthood, being better placed for carrying on human pro- gress, until the man of the ages to come should be the superman which we see in our visions of the future, they in their turn being the precursors of still higher developed races—their superman.
Barry Refuses Merthyrs Terms for Water
Barry Refuses Merthyr's Terms for Water. KEPT THEM ABOUT A LONG TIME." The Water Committee of the Barry Urban District Council (Mr. J. E. Levers presiding) held a special meet- ing 011 Monday evening to consider an offer from Merthyr to supply one million gallons of water per day at the southern boundary of the Corporation's area at 3}d. per 1.000. The Committee felt that the revised terms were un- favourable, compared with the original offer, when the price was fixed at 3d. per 1,000 gallons. The Chairman was of opinion that water could be obtained cheaper from their neighbours at Cardiff. It tan spired in course of discussion that a million gallons per day would cost- the ratepayers a shilling in the £ on the half-year. Coun. T. Davies, J.P., the chairman of the Council, said he did not blame the Merthyr Corporation for the re- vised terms, because Barry had" kept them about a long time." and had made no definite offer. On the proposition of Mr. G. Ware- ham. seconded by Mr. S. R. Jones, the Committee agreed—and it was subse- quently ratified by the Council—that they could not see their way to accept the amended terms. Merthyr Electric Theatre.
