THE LATE MR. SWETENHAM, M.P. As was briefly announced in our telegraphic news last week, Mr. Edmund Swetenham, the Conserva- tive member for the Carnarvon Boroughs, died at his residence, Cam-yr-Alyn, Rossett, on Wednesday night. He had been ill for some weeks from Russian influenza,but had apparently recovered. On Wednes- day he came down to dinner and afterwards played a game at cards. He went into an adjoining room for a book, and immediately rang the bell. The butler entered and found him lying on the sofa dying. Death was caused by failure of the heart's action. The deceased member was born in 1820, and belonged to a Cheshire family. He was educated at Macclesfield Grammar School and Brazenose College, Oxford. He was called to the bar in 1848, and became a Q.C. in 1880. Although a Conserva- tive, he was in favour of "giving Ireland the same rights, liberties, and laws as England, Wales, and Scotland enjoy," and of giving her a national council of her own. In 1885 Mr. Swetenham was defeated when he contested the Carnarvon boroughs by 65 votes, but he turned the tables at the general election in the following year, when he beat Mr. Love Jones-Parry (L), who sought re-election, by a majority of 136. The funeral took place at Hope, near Wrexham, on Saturday. Mr. Lloyd George, solicitor, Criccieth, has issued his address as a Liberal candidate for the vacancy.
