FROM THE PAPERS. "t Sir Jolin Eldon Bankes, one of the recently-appointed judges and formerly on the North Wales circuit, was a guest. at the annual dinner of the ~S@eiety of, Cymmrodoripn at the Whitehall Rooms..

Responding to 'the toast to his health, Mr Justice Bankes -attributed his membership of the Society 'to the fact that in the year 17, hi-, great- irreat--orrandfa-thet- married Miss "Margaret Wynne, daughter of Bishop Wynne, ^nd that he had succeeded to their Welsh estates.

He had been extremely touched by the great kindness with which his appointment had been received by those whom he had the pleasure of calling This fellow-Welshmen. An attempt, it is said. is to be made to get the report of the Welsh Church Com- mission withdrawn from circulation on the ground that alterations are alleged to have been made in Sir John report after it was signed, and that Archdeacon Evans's protest against Sir John Williams and Mr. J.

THE GENERAL ELKO i ION THE MONTGOMERY BOROUGHS. MR. LLOYD GEORGE AT MACHYLFLLETH. The nomination of candidates in the Montgomery Boroughs took place at Montgomery on Friday. Mr. A. Humphreys Owen, attended by his agent, Mr. Martin Woosnam, was nominated as the Liberal candidate, and Colonel Pryce Jones as the Conservative. Two nomina- tion papers were handed in for the Liberal candidate, both being from LlanfyllTn, and two papers handed in for the Conserva- tive were from Machynlleth and Llan- fyllin. After the nomination ceremony, both candidates resumed their canvass Mr. Humphreys Owen being accompanied -in a motor car by Mr David Davies who was returned unopposed for the county on the previous Monday by Lord Herbert Vane Tempest, high sheriff, and Mr. Edmund Gillart, Machynlleth, under- sheriff. Newtown, the largest of the six contributory boroughs, has been the centre of special attention and both candidates spent a great deal of time there. In addition to a. deputation from Ireland protesting against Home Rule, Colonel Pryce Jones was supported this week by a host of speakers. Liberals, however, proved not only superior as far as public speaking was concerned, but have also worked strenuously, thoroughly, and quietly. A public meeting was announced in support of Colonel Pryce Jones at Machynlleth on Tuesday night, admission being by -ticket. Among the speakers expected on the Conser- vative side during the week were Lord Willoughby de Broke, Viscount Castlereagh, ibrd Ninian Stuart, Mr .Griffith Roscawen, and Mr. Ormsby Gore, who are members of the new Parliament. It is stated that Llanidloes was left alone by the -Conservative organ- isers, a tribute to ths sturdy Liberalism of the place. Mr. ttumpnreyis Uwen is a popular candidate and has been received with enthusiasm throughout the constituency. Feeling that the whole of Wales expected Montgomery Boroughs to retain the seat, the Liberals were generally confident, not^ standing that the constituency has been alternately Liberal and Conservative. Mr John Burns, who was invited to speak on Wednesday night, has telegraphed to Mr.' Humphreys Owen wishing •' success to the worthy son of a worthy father" and ex- pressing regret that he was not able to speak on his behalf. Other prominent speakers expected on the Liberal platform were Mr. J. Herbert Lewis (junior lord of the Treasury), Mr. C. F. Masterman (under secretary of the Home Depart- ment), Mr. J. W Benn (under secretary of the Local Government Board). On Monday evening there ^-as a great Liberal rally in Newtown, addressed by Mr. Lloyd George, Mr. G. R. XliorUe (the Liberal member for East Wolverhampton who ha.s close associations with the toiin),, Sir Alfred Thomas, Sir Francis Edwards (who has restored Radnor to Liberalism), and Mr David Davies, M.P. The chair- man was Mr. Hugh Lewis. On his way to Newtown, Mr. Llovd George, after motoring from, Criccieth i arrived in Machynlleth shortly after one o'clock on Monday afternoon and was the guest of Mrs. Foulkes Jones, at Bodlondeb, where he had lunch. News of Mr. George's visit had spread far and near and there was alarge gather- ing of people from the neighbouring dis- tricts in the three counties, with a con- tingent of young Liberals from Aberyst- wyth. A platform had been improvised by the side of the Clock Tower which Was erected to commemorate the coming of age of the present Marquis 01 Londonderry. When Mr. Lloyd George and party arrived on the platform, he was greeted With tumultuous cheering and cries of "I/l°yd George for ever." On the plAtform a number of old age pensioners displayed anxiety to recognise their hero. They were not very enthusiastic, lout their faces bore a cheerful appearance as Mr. Lloyd George shook hands with them before leaving. Among the pensioners were ^rs Mari Lewis, Dovev View; Mrs. Betty Thomas, Bentrehedyn-street; Mrs Jones, Doldderwen: Mrs. Rowlands, Llynlleoedd- lane: Mr. ,Î!Evan Rowlands, Garshiwn. and Mr Isaac Evans, who was a blacksmith i°r many years at Abergynolwyn. The school children, having a half-holiday, were present in force and their hero worship was rather ^boisterous. They mot only shouted "Lloyd George for Ever;" but seemed particularly anxious to shake hands with him. I nfortunately, the pro- ceedings were marred by ram, and while "Mr. Lloyd George was speaking in the open air a heavy shower fell- but when t when someone in the large crowd- piut up an umbrella, there were cries, "Down with the iimbrellak.. We want 4 see 2Mr. Lloyd George. Never mind the rain." •Mr. Lloyd George's comment was "Per- haps it will be -good for trade." Mr. H Meredith Roberts, solicitor, presided, and in his opening remarks well comed Mr. Llcnd George on behalf of the Liberals of the town and expressed 'heart- felt gratitude to him for visiting Mach- ynlleth in support of Mr. Humphreys Owen's candidature. (Cheers.) Lloyd George was the most famous Welsh- mac of "Cymru Sydd." Machynlleth was the parliament-place of a famous Welshman of "Cymru Fu." (Cheers.) The sword of Owen Glyndwr had 'beer, sheatiied for a long time, but his spirit was alive and would still go marching (on af long,us Mr. Lloyd tteorge llveu. sneers.) He was not only" a famous Welshman, but ti famous statesman known to all the world and ready to fight in future as in flie past for the truth yn erbyn y byd." (Cheers.) Although his fame and influ- ence were so great, he 'had not forgotten his native land. That was why he held a warm place in the heart of Wales. While the river Dovey ran tc,, the sea, Mr Lloyd George's name would ever be blessed as "nil o oronon Gwalia." Their prayer wns that he would long be spared and strength- ened to lead the people to liberty and (Meers.) I AT-r. Lloyd George was again received with loud cheering on rising to speak, which he <\3id in Welsh. Alluding to the College yell of Aberystwyth Students, he aId he understood the language of his fellow countrymen, but the language be had jtas&t 'heard was unknown to him. During the previous election he visited Machynlleth to support the 'Liberal candL date who had a majority of fourteen. (A Voice: "Too much.") It was quite as much as he deserved. (Laughter:) This time they had a man to. represent then,, a man with lrtmest Liberalism in his veins, and one of themselves..(Cheers.) Let them put a third figure in the majority this time. The Liberal candidate deserved it of them. His father had been one of the best workers Wales ever had, working quietly and unostentatiously—the. sort of worker which a (f,.otinti-y required in build- ing her temples. (Cheers.) Marry of the columns in the splendid temple of AVels-h education had been raised by the labourc of Mr. Humphreys Owen and his name would be carved on them in marble. (Cheers.) They ought to elect -Ir. Humphreys Dwen not because lie was -the son of his father,! but because he was a worthy son. (Cheers.)! He (Mr George) did not believe very much in heredity. (Laughter and cheers.) He did not want them to elect anyone simply because he was the eldest son. In Mr Humphreys Owen they had a. son who was as good as his father. (Cheers.) The election was one of the most import- ant ever fought in Wales. It was an ejection to settle the greatest enemy of Wales, -(Cheers.) They should forget all their little personal differences and local prejudices, whatever they might be, and. unite in one grand cause which would leave its mark en the history of the nation. (Cheers.) The House of Lords had always sneered and snarled at those who were too weak to stand up to it. Its history showed that no good measure was ever passed except through fear; and the only hope of dealing with the House of Lords was by putting fear in its soul. (Cheers.) They could put nothing else there. (Laughter.) Liberals had already com- menced to do so. They had a majoiity o over fifty, and before the end of the week lit would be doubled. That was quite enough to bury the House of Lords. (Cheers.) Let the Montgomery Boroughs take care that they were in the fojd. When the greatest victory ever won by the people was being recorded, let it not be said that the people of theMontgomery Boroughs were in favour of oppression and that Machynlleth was against liberty. (Cries of "Nn.") Were they sure? (Cries of "Yes.") They were not all sure, Some people at the back did not shouts (A voice: "They live across the river.") Mr tJcyd George asked every one who was on the side cf liberty to hold up his hand and every one did so with loud cheers. Look at the history of the House of Lords during the past few years, he added. Wales was only a small nation, and every measure for Wales was important to them. I How were those measures treated by the House of Lords? In 1906 provision was made for a Wrelsh national council. The Welsh people had shown themselves capable of managing their secondary and higher education Why could they not be allowed to manage their elementary educat-'on P When the Education Bill was gent to the House of Lords, with a majority cf 200, it was thrown out. Anything with an Irish brogue or a Welsh accent—out it goes. Then out with the House of Lords. (Cheers.) Mr. Tom Ellis had carried measures dealing with Welsh education through the House of Commons, but they were thrown out by the House of Lords, ftven under a Tory government. They made a dinner of every lamb from the Welsh mountains. The Parliament Bill was an instrument to draw out their teeth. (Cheers, and a Voice: "They have only false teeth.") Then out with them. He had one word to sav-not to the people of Machynlleth, or the people of Montgomery Boroughs, but to every individual. He wanted to tell them as a Welshman, as one who, was fighting for Wales, and as one who by the help of providence would fight for them again- (cheers)—let ,them not betray Wales. (Cheers.) On the polling day, let every- one see to it that the responsibility of doing injustice to Wales did not rest on him. (Cheers.) Speaking in Fnglish, the right hon gentlemlan appealed to every Liberal to do his duty by the democracy- It was a most momentous election. There had not been a struggle in the country for three centuries which portended f30 much for the people, and it depended entirely on the people whether -their answer would be so emphatic as to put an end once for ever to the pretensions of 600 people who, without authority from anyone, arrogated to themselves the power of rejecting measures passed by the will of the people. (Cheers.) He appealed to them each and all to do their duty, so that it would be a. matter of pride to them and to their children that they took _1_ ..LL- -1..+ part on tne rignt siae ana unuer uie ngui banner in that struggle. (Applause.) Sir Francis Edwards, who was greeted with three cheers for Radnor, hoped that every Liberal would respond to the stir- ring appeal of the Chancellor. He saw ,men before him who were not afraid of hard work. He uirged them not to slacken in their efforts to return Mr. Humphreys Owen. They were fighting against a party that was crushing the liberties of the country. (Cheers.) Now or never was the time to strike for free- dom. He was sure that Montgomery. Boroughs could do as well as Radnor. It was one of the greatest struggles since the time of Owen Glyndwr, of whom Mrs. Llovd George was a descendant. (Cheers.) When they read of the heroism of their forefathers, their hearts glowed with enthusiasm. Let them so act now that future generations would be proud of the day when Mr. Lloyd George led Wales to victory. (Applause.) Mrs. Lloyd George was also greeted with rounds of cheering, and in few words said if everyone did his part she had no doubt they would have a glorious vitoi;y. Professor Levi, Aberystwyth, who had a splendid reception, usaid they had faith in' -Mr. Astjuith" hope in Mr. Churchill, and charity in lr. Lloyd George. It was a proud thing to belong to Great Britain, but it was a prouder thing to belong to Wales. When Mr. Lloyd George became prime minister, Wales would be in her proper place among the nations. (Cheers.) "The Parliament Bill was introduced by the late Prime Minister. It was carried by the present Prime Minister, and its fruit would be reaped by the future Prime Minister, Mr. Lloyd George. (Cheers.) If they voted for Colonel Pryce Jones— (booing—they voted for 600 peers who were elected at their birth and nominated after- ward. (Laughter.) "Liberals claimed the right to rule by the same qualification as the peers. They were the sonsi of their fathers. (Cheens.) As they valued the future government of Great Britain, let them have nothing 'to do with the refer- endum. (Cheers.) It was one of the most deceptive proposals ever put before the country. In fact, it added another veto to the House of Lords. Liberals asked for fair government. Their charge against the House of Lords was that they did not play the game of politics fairly. (Cheers.)" When a Tory government was Jn power, the Lord Chancellor sang alone W7here is my wandering boy, to-night?" (Laughter and cheers.) The few shall not for ever sway, The many toil in sorrow-; The House of Lords has had its day, It's the people's day tomorrow. After further cheering,, !Mr. Lloyd e°rge anc] party left the" platform and a erward motored to Newtown.

Mr Lloyd veogr thought he should be in the HollSe of Commons to do something for Wales. I lIe (Mr Edwards) hoped to prove a worthy successor to Sir S. T. Efaus and Mr F. W. Gibbins. He was the ate of one party, but was going to be the member for all. (Cheers.) Mr E'.ch!rBil S afterward made a trium- phal tour tai ough the constituency.. On learning ""suit of the election, Mr Lloyd G.e01 g>e wired "Heartiest con- gratulatiollS npon your splendid victory. Your presence will be an acquisition to the Welsh Pfrty- Sir Alt' ii Lind, M.

The poll totalled 13,753, whereas the ,.Il early in the year reached 16,160, this being a decrease of 1 '^7• Considering the aavers^ climatic condi- tions <nd "'the hurried manner. in ,hieh the contest ffaS c°nducted, it was con- sidered a fairly good poll. The succses or Mr Edwards wasT 'ceived with cheering at Aheiyst^'yth -Wral Club on Friday and his brother, Mr J) Edwards, fit- tingly resrvopded. Mr Hugh Edwaids was heartily. wel- comed when he returned to his duties at Peckham on Sunday in connection with Hanover Cong!'e £ itlonal Chapel, or which he is pastor. In response to a rote of collgl.atulatioli, he said he had long had a desire to enter Parliament, and honed that nQ'" he had been elected he would be able to do something, it only a little for the democracy of the country. One thing that contributed to his victory was tha-t tben of all parties were on his Election Committee. During his campaign he had t0 make many P«j; unisex and was ^at he would not obey the party Whip if he thought the party Whip was not right. One matter that impresesd him deeply was that the people of Mid-Glamorgan would not have a Godless materialism. Even at Gilfach Goch, where the strike was in progress, and where the people were suffering from privation, a man in the meeting that he addressed shouted out that their best friend was the Man of Nazareth. He (the hon. member) felt proud he was a preacher of the Gospel and his experience would give him in- spiration and strength in his work as member of Parliament.
CHELTENHAM. Tile Liberal victory of Mr Richard Mathias, of Aberystwyth and Cardiff, in Cheltenham was celebrated on Wed- nesday night. A torchlight procession, headed by the Member and local Liberal leaders, visited every part of the town. Mr Mathias had an enthusiastic recep- tion, both in the streets and the Central Committee rooms, where the procession, which was nearly a mile long, ended. Mr Kessell, the agent, who onty came into the division two months ago, was also well received. Mr Mathias said the re- sult of the election proved that Liberal- ism in Cheltenham had turned the corner. He hoped to be their candi- date in future fights. (Applause.) The people were determined to' settle the question of the House of Lords. The Government was assured of a strong majority, which meant the maintenance of freedom of government, freedom of trade, and freedom to carry through those measures of social reform the Lib- eral party had so long advocated. (Ap- plause.) Mr MatIiias is a prosperous shipowner I in Cardiff. In his earlier days he was connected with the banking profession and was admitted to the Bar at Lincoln's Inn in 1896, but has not practised. He is a brother of Major Mathias, Aberystwyth.
LINCOLNSHIRE. At Louth (Line.), where the Government secured a gain, the successful Liberal candidate was Mr Timothy Davies, who had a majority of seventy-two over the former Conservative member. The seat was previously held by Sir R. W. Perks. i*ir uavios is a native ot Llanpump- saint, Carmarthenshire and well known in Aberystwyth. He is related to the Rev Gwynoro Davies of Barmouth. He was apprenticed to the drapery trade at Liverpool, but removed to London in 1885. He started business on his own account at Fulham, and became mayor of that borough in 1900. He represented Fulham in the 1906 Parliament and un- successfully contested Louth at the Janu- ary election. Disgraceful scenes followed the result at Louth, which is the Con- serative candidate's home. Mrs Timothy Davies was struck near the eye by a sharp :Hint stone causing a painful wound. Two doctors attended her promptly, and she was conveyed to a residence :near by. Mr Davies had to be escorted by the police and his supporters from the Town Hall to the Liberal Club. The mob indulged in stone-throwing and hooting. Mrs Davies was not seriously injured. The election of Mr Timothy Davies cto-incided with the non-election of Mr Timothy Healy in another Louth.
MID-DERBY. Mr David Rhys, a native of Llanarth, Cardiganshire, who was inaccurately des- cribed in many papers as Sir David Rhys, was the Conservative candidate for Mid-Derbyshire and was defeated by .Mr J. C. Hancock, the former Labour member, by a majority of 2,270. The JLabour majority was reduced by 1,019. At the previous election, Mr Rhys was defeated in Denbighshire.
CARNARVON BOROUGHS. CHANCELLOR INCREASES HIS MAJORITY. ROUSING RECEPTION AT CIRIOCTETH ROWDY SCENES IN PWLLHELI. -Polling took place in Carnarvon Bor- oughs on Saturday. The result, which was declared at Carnarvon shortly after eleven o'clock on Saturday night, was as follows:— D. Lloyd George (L.) 3,112 Austen LI. Jones (C.) 1,904 Liberal majority 1,208 The majority is 130 more than Mr Lloyd George secured against Mr Vincent last January and is within sixteen of his re- cord majority secured in 1906 against the late -Air N ayl^cir. Relatively, however, the majority this time is the biggest he has ever had for the total poll this time was only b,016, a decrease of 262 as com- pared with last January and of 202 as compared with the 1906 election. The register this time bore nominally 1,926 voters in Bangor. 1,689 in Car- narvon; 827 in Conway and Deganwy; 647 in Pwllheli; 371 in Nevin; and 251 in Criccieth; a total of 5,917, so that as com- pared with the register and the poll there is a difference of 901. This is to some extent due to deaths and removals and absence from home, but mainly to abstentions. In the matter of deaths and removals, the Liberals were even proportionately hit .much more severely than the Tories. Mr Austin Jones polled 201 fewer votes than Mr Vincent and ninety-three less than the late Mr rv aylor. It was Bangor that was mainly re- sponsible for the increase in Mr Lloyd George's majority this time. Bangor gave the Chancellor a -majority of about 200 as compared with fewer than forty in the January election. The other towns maintained their customary maj- orities more or less. The decrease, where there was a decrease, was due to deaths, removals, or absence from home. Mr and Mrs Lloyd George '\who stayed at Carnarvon on Friday night, visited the Carnarvon nollfeg booths on- Satur- day morning and were given a T^usinf reception. Mr Lloyd George afterward left for Criccieth where he remained un- til the evening, returning in time for the declaration. Mr Austin Jones also put in an appearance at Carnarvon during the polling and was given a hearty re- cention by his supporters. In the evening the crowd in Car- narvon subjected a suffragette to. rough treatment and later endeavoured to terrorise some license holders to put out their lights, but an appeal by the Mayor (Alderman J. T. Roberts), had due effect and the licensing premises were given peace. Several panes of glass at Car- narvon Police Station were broken and a police sergeant who was standing out- side the Station was struck with a stone above his left eye and sustained severe inii.jr- There were about forty police at the Police Station ready for emer- gencies. All of a sudden they rushed out, and in a moment the crowd were in full retreat. The result of the poll was declared by the Mayor of Carnarvon at quarter past eleven. Mr Lloyd George moved a vote of thanks to the returning officer for the efficient manner in which the election had been conducted. He also expressed his appreciation of the good temper shown in the contest, and of the honourable manner in which his opponent had car- ried on the campaign. (Cheers.) Mr W. Lloyd Griffith, the Conservative agent, seconded the vote of thanks. It had been arranged that Mr. Lloyd George should after the declaration ad- dress his supporters in Castle-square and on his arrival the right hon. gentleman's car was surrounded by a cheering crowd, whose enthusiasm made it quite im- possible for Mr George to deliver more than a few fragmentary words of thanks. "My dear fellow-countrymen," said Mr Lloyd George after "The Land of my Fathers" had been sung, "twenty years ago I was thanking you for giving me a majority of eighteen Times have im- proved wonderfully since then, for to- night the majority has reached 1,208." (Loud cheers.) He went on to say that he was proud to have taken a part once more in the great fight in a righteous cause to which their dear nation had already contributed so much. Wales had proved true to the banner of liberty—(cheers)— and in a few months more they and he wolt!d see the old enemy of democratic freedom laid pros- trate. (Loud cheers.) Mr Herbert Lewis, M.P., and Mr E. W. Davies, M.P., who accompanied Mr Lloyd George, also added a few congratu- lations to the men of the Carnarvon Boroughs, and subsequently the newly- elected member, now looking back upon his seventh contest, drove back to Cric- cieth amidst tremendous cheering. ENTHUSIASM AT CRICCIETR. C'riccieth Town Hall was densely packed on Saturday night awaiting the result of the poll. Songs, recitations, and gramophone selections were given, and when the Chancellor's victory was announced the audience burst into tre- mendous enthusiasm. The meeting formed into a procession which marched to the Chancellor's residence to await his return. They congregated on the lawn and sang election songs with Celtic fervour. At half-past one, Mr and Mrs Lloyd George, accompanied by Mr Herbert Lewis, M.P., and Mr William George ar- rived in Criccieth and before proceeding home the Chancellor, as is his custom after every contest, called upon his uncle, Mr Richard Lloyd, at Gartlicelyn. It was about two o'clock when Mr and Mrs Lloyd George and Mr Herbert Lewis arrived at Brynawelon, where they were greeted by Sir Francis Edwards, M.P., the victor of Radnor, and by the crowd assembled outside the Chancellor's resi- dence. The crowd, when the motor ap- peared, gave vent to ringing cheers and then sang the National Anthem, after which they called upon Mr Lloyd George for a speech. In a short address from the doorstep, the Chancellor thanked his neighbours for their unflinching loyalty to him and for the handsome majority they had ac- corded him. The crowd then gave the Chancellor three rousing cheers and bade him good night. The singing of election stanzas continued until nearly three o'clock. DISORDER IN PWLLHELI. CONSERVATIVE CLUB ATTACKED. The result of the poll reached Pwllheli by telephone shortly before half-past eleven and was communicated by Mr Cradoc Davies to a crowd of from two. to three thousand people who packed the Town Hall, hundreds having come to town for the result from different parts of Lleyn Peninsula. The crowd enthu- siastic over the increased majority, par- aded the streets cheering and singing election songs. The main body went along High-street; but a section went down Penlan-street and stopped outside the Conservative Club Rooms hooting and shouting "Lloyd George for ever." There was a large number of members at the Conservative Club. Some of them came out and threatened the Liberal enthusiasts. Immediately the latter ,1. _1- I' 1out nappny the police were able to repel the attack. In the mean- time, the main body of the Liberal crowd had arrived and there were close upon three thousand people outside the Con- servative Club. Members of the latter Club kept within the railings of the pre- mises and struck out at anyone who came near, one of the Conservatives hit- ting them with a stick which was eventu- ally wrested from him. Several of the Liberal supporters were injured. This roused the ire of the crowd to a high pitch. Several ugly rushes were mae, and matters were looking serious, for Superintendent Jones ajid Sergeant Lloyd had only a staff of seven con- stables, the other policemen being on duty in Carnarvon. They succeeded however, in keeping the crowd at bay'. They would not have been able to repel them, however, were it not for the ap- peals of Alderman Anthony, Alderman Maurice Jones, Mr Evan R. Davies, Mr H. Pritchard, and other Liberal leaders who stood by the police, appealing again and again to the crowd desist and to go home. The appeals had effect eventually and the great majority of the crowd moved on cheering and singing elections songs, whilst the Conservatives retired into the Club. Some hundreds still remained behind, however, and oon- tinued the attack on the Club. Some of them went the length of throwing stones at the windows and sixteen panes were smashed. Some of those inside the Club were struek by the stones and one of them, it is reported, was somewhat severely hurt. The attackers gradually dwindled down, and by half-past two in the morning the place was clear. Alder- man Anthony remained with the police until all the crowd had cleared away and his presence was of invaluable ser- vice to the police in bringing the crowd to reason. The occupants of the Club, numbering between forty and fifty, including Colonel Lloyd Evans, Broom Hall, and Mr. Vaughan Wynn left the Club premises about three o'clock. ALLEGED IMPERSONATION. At Pwllheli there were two cases of alleged impersonation at the polling booth. The Pwllheli Liberal Committee are considering what further steps, if any, should be taken. One case is that of a man who is alleged to have voted in his father's name, the latter being away, and the other case that of a person whose father died recently. CHANCELLOR LEAVES FOR LONDON. Mr and Mrs Lloyd George, who were the guests of Mr David Davies, M.P., at Plasdinam on Monday night, left for London on Tuesday. On Sunday afternoon, the Chancellor attended service at Berea Disciples Church, Criccieth, accompanied by Mr Herbert Lewis, M.P., Mr Ellis W. Davies, M.P..) and Sir Francis Edwards, M.P. Mr Richard Lloyd, the Cnancel- lor's uncle, preached.
A comparative statement for England and Wales of pauperism and the cost of poor relief in certain years from 1848-49 to 1909-10 has been issued by the Local Government Board. For the year ended Lady-day, 1849, the mean number of pau- pers of all classes, including lunatics, was 1,088,659, a ratio of 62.7 per 1,000 of the population. In none of the subsequent years was the figure so high; the next highest being 1,032,800 in 1870, a ratio of 46 -5. In 1910 the mean number for the year ended Lady-day was 923,433, a ratio of 25 -8 per 1,000. On the other hand, while the number of paupers has decreased the expenditure on poor relief has increased enormously. Thus in 1849 it was £ 5,792,963; in 1900, £ 11,567,6(49; and in 1910, £ 14,910,121. The ratable value of property in England and Wales was in i849 £ 67,700,153; in 1900, 9175,622,758; and in 1910, £ 215,309,542. The estimated population in 1849 was 17,357,000, in 1900 it was 31,881,000, and in 1910 it was 35,757,000.
-¡, FOOTBALL. ABERYSTWYTH JUNIOR LEAGUE. TRINITY v PADARN UNITED. Trinity and Padarn teams met on the Smithfield Ground on Saturday and, after an exciting game, ended with honours even. Padarn, who was the heavier team, soon adapted themselves to the muddy state of the ground; and, playing with vigour, their forwards were soon troubling Trinity defence. About twenty minutes after the start, Padarn opened the scoring, J. Williams beating the Trinity goalie with a good shot. It looked as if Trinity were in for a heavy defeat, for before the in- terval r'aaarn again scored two more goals through Thomas and Craig. The score at half-time was in favour of Padarn bv three goals to nil. During the second" half, Trinity had improved and, playing with dogged persistence, they soon reduced Padarn's lead. J. Macpherson wa3 the scorer. Encouraged by their success, Trinity were not long before adding another through T. O. Jones, who soon after put matters on a level amid much cheering. There was no further scoring and the final result was a draw of three goals each. For Padarn, Davies, in goal, and E. Jones, full-back, played well. The halves and forwards were very even. For Trinity A. Griffiths and H Jones were a sound pair of backs. There was not much to eti-aese in the halves, and the same can be said of the forwards, although every credit must be given to T. 0. Jones for pulling the game out of the slough for Trinity. Ir. T. Hughes was the referee. The teams ii-ere-Ti-inity: Goal, A. Williams; backs, A. Griffiths and H. Jones: halves, Shone, B. Owen, J. Scott; forwards, T 0. Jones, A. Thorpe, C. Stephenson, J. Macplierson, and- D R. Davies. Padarn: Goal, A. Davies; backs, E. Jones and D. W^lliamfe; halves. D. Howells. Williams, T.
