Cardiganshire Liberal Association. PROTRACTED MEETING AT LAMPETER. THE COUNTY MEMBER CRITICISED. WALES AND DISESTABLISHMENT. Cardiganshire Liberal Association sat for four hours on Thursday at Brondeify, Lam- peter, and had before it a programme provid- ing scope for discussion for a couple of days. The Rev. Dan Evans, D.D., Hawen; the pre- sident, took the chair until his successor was appointed. There was a large and representa- tive attendance. In commencing the meeting, Dr. Evans said considering the length of the agenda and the number of topics to be discussed the Association could dispense with the Presi- dent's address. ("No, No. Last year the Association was in hopes that the war would be over this year, but it was still raging and raging worse than ever. He hoped, however, that during his term of office his successor would be able to give better news. The Secretary (Mr. Harry Rees) read letters from delegates from St. Dogmaels which had been added to Cardiganshire expressing loyalty to Liberalism and appreciation of the Parlia- mentary services of Mr. Vaughan Davies. The Rev. Towyn Jones, the Welsh whip, wrote that he hoped Cardiganshire would in these days of stress and strife stand by the Welsh Prime Minister and his Government. Mr. Vaughan Davies the letter added, has been a great sup- porter of every war Government we have had since the commencement of hostilities. He can always be relied on to do his level best for his country and Cardiganshire in particular. I did not realise his worth until I became a member of Parliament. I consider him one of the best representatives of Wales in the House of Com- mons and there is no sacrifice too much for him to make in the interest of the county of Cardigan. (Cheers.) Mr. Lloyd George wrote— I recognise the loyal support which Cardigan- shire through its member has given me in the very terrible and trying task resting on my shoulders. These are days when help, co-opera- tion, and encouragement are needed to enable those who are carrying the burdens of the nation in every sphere to discharge their duties successfully. If we work together in the spirit of comradeship we shall surely win. Mr. Timothy Richards, Lampeter, vice-pre- sident, was unanimously elected president of the Association for the year and took the chair vacated by Dr. Dan Evans. and Mr. Charles Evans was elected vice-chairman of Lampeter district. In proceeding to the election of Executive Committee, Mrs. T. Z. Jones proposed that three women should be elected for each dis- trict, remarking that now women were en- franchised they should be given opportunities of showing their faithfulness to Liberal prin- ciples and ability to worthily take their part in political affairs. The- proposition having been agreed to, the Committee was elected as follows Aberystwyth district—Mrs. Loxdale, Mrs. Griffiths, Mrs. Jane James, Messrs. C. M. WiLiaros, D. C. Roberts, T. J. Samuel, J. Barclay Jenkins, and Prof. Levi. Aberayron—Mrs. T. Z. Jones, Mrs Evans, Ffosffin; Mrs. Jones, Pensarn; Messrs J M Howell, Lima Jones, Griffith Davies, Rosemount, the Rev.

Under the direction of that Committee no fewer than fifty public meetings had been held. Since the passing of the Reform Act political work had been renewed with much activity and he re- jo:ced at tlfe fact that the franchise had been extended to women. The Act had also given the county new territory by the inclusion of St. D-gmaels municipal with over 400 voters, 85 per cent. of whom might be regarded as Liberals. b Mr. Vaughan Davies was cheered as he rose to give the Treasurer's report, which stated th.nt there was £76 in the bank with the ex- pectation of a further sum in a short time. During his treasurership he had been able to present no more satisfactory report which he thought showed the Asseciation's appreciation of the work done by the Secretary on whom organisation largely depended. 7 An address was givEfl by Mrs Vaughan Davies, North Wales, of the Women's Liberal Federa- tion, in which she urged all qualified women to claim the vote, hoping that, the women voters of Great Britain, as was the case in all other countries, would work for the extension of the Kingdom of God and the uplifting of humanity. A vote of thanks was acco- r1 1 the sneaker on the proposition of Mrs. Tt; Jones," seconded bv Mrs Morgan, Cribyn. Mrs. Griffith, Aherystwyth, moved That this meeting recognises the importance of en- listing the great new force of women voters in the ranks of Liberalism and pledges itself to enrol as many women as possible in the consti- tuency which will include women on equal terms with men." She said that for the past twenty-three years she felt that she was an I intruder at the Association meetings: but was now present as of right. (Applause) Women to- day knew their industrial value. They hoped to he able to end war for ever. Men had been pretty Siow and undecided. Had women' the vote they would have settled the drink ques- tion years ago. What about the land ques- tion? Women's vote wou;d be given thought- fully for the uplifting of the nation and the betterment of the world. Housing and health, motherhood and children were women's ques- tions in which if they banded themselves together they could effect great changes for the better. Mrs. T. Z. Jonrs seconded the proposition, re- marking that on entering into their new poli- tical life women would take hold of their duties with courage and stund side by side with.men in fighting the battle of progress. Hitherto women had been the power behind the men in times of election. Having the vote women henceforth would be able to do better work in winning elect;ons. The proposition was agreed to. Disestablishment Act. Professor Levi moved "That this meeting pro- tests against the proposal made at the annual meeting of the Central Church Council on May 7fli to postpone the date of disestablishment demands that the Welsh County Councils, hav- ing regard to the fact that the value of tithes is now nine over par and that next vear the official estimate is that it will stand at thirty over par. shall be empowered by Act of Par- liament to commute the life interests of the clergy at the pre-war rate of tithe and glebe or have the option not to commute them at all; seiits the statement of the Archbishop of Canterbury at the same meeting that promises have been secretly made by members of the present. Government even by the foremost of their opponents to recnnsirW tl.o j the Welsh Church Act: and calls unon the Prime Minister to rive a public denial to the declaration which implies that a Government of which he is head has promised to betray the cause of Wales." Tn movin the proposi- tion Professor Levi s.lid lie heard in the pre- vious week from an iut mate friend of Mr. Lloyd George, a distinguished Welsh minister, that the Welsh Disestablishment Act was in great danger. ("Shame.") He said he had a letter from a Welsli bishop proposmg to make a compromise with Welsh, ministers of the gospel and from the conversation he (the speaker) was afraid there was real" danger this time, and therefore he wanted a clear pro- nouncement that afternoon or Cardiganshire's great -question. Continuing, Professor Levi, complained that while Liberati-mists had kept, the truce not to publicly discuss disestablish- ment. the Central Church Committee had again ( and again broken the truce. The conspiracy in the House of Lords in 1915 to postpone the Act had been killed. Welsh bishops were now approaching Welsh ministers for a compromise on the ground that the Church was suffering. He never heard such a fraud. Quoting figures published by Mr. Haydn Jones and Mr. Llewelyn Williams, as to the gain to the Church ..4.. due to appreciation of tithe and increased interest through the war, he observed that the worst profiteers in WAIV was the Anglican Church. Was the Government going to reward the loyalty of Wales by altering the Disestab- lishment Act? If so Wales would show the Government that if Welshmen knew how to fight Germans they would know also how to fight the Government. What were the Welsh Members of Parliament doing? (" Nothing.") What were th Welsh party doing? ("Nothing.") What was Mr. Vaughan Davies doing? ("Noth- ing.") He worked hard for Mr. Vaughan Davies in the last election and heard him say he was going to the House of Commons to win disestablishment: and now he asked "Why does he not let us know of this danger and this conspiracy?" Mr. Lima Jones—Does he know? Professor Levi-Let him tell you what he knows and I know. Continuing,, the speaker stated that the Free Church Council of Wales sent a letter to all the Welsh members asking for a guarantee that the Welsh Disestablish- ment. Act should not be altered. Replies were received from twenty-seven members out of the thirty-four and one of the seven who did not reply was Mr. Vaughan Davies. To a sub- sequent letter replies wese received from three of the seven; but one member who never re- plied was the Member for Cardiganshire He asked Mr. Vaughan Davies why? Was it not fair to ask him that day, "Are you sound on disestablishment?" If not, what was the good of being in the House of Commons for Cardi- ganshire? If Mr. Vaughan Davies would fight to the last ditch for disestablishment he (the speaker) would do his best to fight for him-. but Liberals were tired of all that. sort of fiaud and compromise. (Cheers.) The Rev. J. Green, Twrgwyn, Newcastle Emlyn, seconded the proposition, and it was agreed to. Mr. Vaughan Davies said that Mr. Levi had thought right, without saying a word to him, to charge him with want of loyalty to the people of Cardiganshire, because he did not answer a lot of letters from writers who doubted his loyalty. He never missed an opportunity of voting for disestablishment and he should do exactly the same thing to-day if occasion arose. He did not listen to all the little tittle-tattle which took place at street corners whether by bishops or ministers. Mr. Levi said that disestablishment was law. It was law. Then what was the good of asking what would possibly happen. after the war? Where there was nothing but talk what could he do? Let them bring in a Bill to do away with the Disestablishment Act. That would be the time to put him to the test and not, when there was nothing but tittle-tattle. If he was in the House of Commons and failed them when a Bill dealing with disestablishment came before the House he would resign his seat and let them say whether he had failed them or not. He had never failed them in the twenty-three years lie had been their member and he was not going to fail them at the end of his career. (Cheers.) Mr. J. Barclay Jenkins, Aberystwyth, next moved "That this meeting declares its adhesion to the principle of home rule all round and calls upon the Welsh Members to press at once for the establishment of the office of Sec- retary for Wales as a step in the direction of Welsh home rule." Home rule, added Mr Jen- kins, was a principle now admitted to be the only way of properly governing an empire. Wales asked for a Parliament of its own and not to be governed by a body alien to its instincts. Women voters were going to do something. Men had failed. ("No, no.") Men had failed to govern Ireland and Wales was governed against its own distinct desires by another nation. There never yet existed a nation that ruled another nation well. Home iule for Wales, Ireland, Scotland, and England was to-day a practical question which the added votes of women would settle. (Cheers.) Mr. Stephen Jones, Blaenanerch, seconded the proposition and it was agreed to. Mr. J. M. Howell, Aberayron, chairman of the County Council, moved "This Association, convinced that the future security of the world and of civilisation depends upon the overthrow of Prussian miiitarism and the institution of a league of nations under which the law of public right will replace the exercise of force, heartily approves the statement of the allied war aims made by the Prime Minister on Jan- uary 5th and endorsed by Mr. Asquith; also the declaration made by the President of the. United States, and pledges itself to support the King's Government in the effective prosecu- tion of the war." It was, added Mr Howell, hardly worth while considering what to do in this case and that case after the war. Their business to-day was to resist and overcome the domination of a merciless military caste. Unless they did that there was no room for liberty: no room for conscience. They all realised that the country was engaged in a life and death struggle on the side of freedom with the reactionary powers of the world. It was therefore of vital interest that they should pre- sent an undivided front. The pressure of the war was such that it was essential they should combine in supporting that only Government he thought possible until after a general election. He feared it had been their besetting fault to count the virtues of Mr. Asquith and to magnify any errors of procedure that might have characterised Mr. Lloyd George's adminis- tration. They might with advantage support with more explicit enthusiasm the Government of their own fellow countryman-Mr. Lloyd George. (Cheers.) Mr. T. H. Edwards, Aberystwvth, seconded the proposition and said that although he had been Military and National Service Represen- tative for two and a half years he was none the less anti-mihtarian than he had ever been, because they were fighting Prussian miiitarism, and It would be a serious thing for the country if they were ever governed by militarism. A few sentences should be added to the resolution deprecating the attempts made to interfere and delay the work of the Government. They should support the Government to the best of their ability, and see that the men at the helm were not interfered with. He was afraid they did iiot realise the seriousness of the situation. They were living in very critical times and it was quite possible that the Germans would be in the channel -ports before the end of next week. It behoved them to support the Govern- ment in every possible way. (Che-ers.) The proposition having been carried, the Rev. K. J. Rees, Aberystwyth, in a lengthy speech said they were united in support of the Govern- ment in being; but at the same time could not put Liberalism ;n commission. They could not shut up liberty in contending for liberty. Should Liberalism be swallowed up in assent to anything and everything the Government did? Was disestablishment the only question that Wales, loving liberty, loving conscience, the only point on which they could express their views without being accused of disloyalty?' A re t ji f;nee to peace by negotiation was cheered by some members of the Association. Mr Rees moved "That this meeting expresses its com- plete confidence in Mr. Asquith and regards is policy of the league of nations as the only step to guard -the world against future wars and urges him to put that question forthwith in the forefront of Liberal policy. This Asso- ciation is of opinion that it would be dis- astrous for Liberal policy if a clearly-defined policy is not put forward by the Liberal leaders in sufficient time to enable it to be explained, and propounded before a general election.

Women Can Be Too UNSELFISH. THERE is urgent need for women to think -*L of themselves more. From a health point of view, it isn't good sense to neglect their own aches and pains whilst mothering everyone else in the home. So many make-this one mistake. Backache, pains in the loins and sides, dizziness and nervousness are early signs of kidney strain, and a woman needs to alter her unselfish ways, or serious kidney disease may follow. She can safeguard her health by getting more rest, more sleep, more outdoor relaxation. To revive and strengthen the kidneys use Doan s Backache Kidney Pills. This treatment cleanses the urinary system. Tea; coffee, and alcohol, if too much used, do not help; neither do heavy meals or too much meat. It is easier to prevent tiian cure dropsy, bladder troubles, rheumatism, .and serious kidney complaint. i'joanJs Tills have succeeded certainly, and in many advanced cases, but early treatment is always best. Doan's Backache Kilney Pills are obtiinabl' at all dealers, or at 2s. 9d. a bottle direct from Foster-McClellan Co., 8, Wells-street, Oxford-street, London, W. 1.

Association is strongly of opinion that; under the leadership of Mr. Asquith there should be a really active Parliamentary criticism free frojK the spirit of faction and that the present Government should not receive the mechanical support of the Liberal leaders." Mr. Teify Jones seconded the proposition which was agreed to, Mr. MQrgan, Cefnbangor, saying he could not vote for it. 0 Mr. Vaughan Davies's Address. Conscientious Objectors. In a lengthy address, Mr. Vaughan Davies said he left the House of Commons to attend that meeting because he thought it one of the most important during the twenty-three years he had been their member They had never met before in so serious eircumsli-i.es. In former days their enemies were he lories and the Liberals of the county k!.ew how t-) cia, with them. To-day they assembled in the shadow of the most terrible war the world had ever experienced and must not regard that war in a party spirit; not as Liberals and Tories, but as British citizens. They were not fight- ing now for party politics, but for their lives and their homes and for everything that made life worth living. There was nothing between the fate of Belgium and this country but the brave sailors and soldiers who were sacrificing their lives on the field of battle. (Hear, hear.) Reference had been made to Mr. Asquith. When Mr. Asquith was prime minister he (Mr. Vaughan Davies) never budged one iota from following him and as long as Mr. Lloyd George was leader of the country he was bound in honour to support the Government in prosecut- ing the war. That, however, did not mean that he was to follow the Go-rnment in all questions that were not connected with the war. When, Mr. Asquith resigned he said in his (the speaker's) presence that he was going to stand by the Government for the war and for the war only. They were bound to stick up for their country. He believed in his country next to his God and nobody would get him to betray it when, the Government was fighting for their homes and their very existence. (Hear, hear.) With regard to peace by negotiation, how coulee they expect to come to a lasting settlement with a nation to whom treaties were nothing but waste paper? When a man treated them badly and treacherously to-day could they treat him well and trust him on the morrow? Could they blame the Government when it said it could not come to terms with Germany which treated treaties as scraps of paper and sneered at and set at, nought the laws of God and man? Unless they could beat the Germans on the field of battle they would have what they would hate all their lives—the burden of militarism. No one was less a Jingo than he was. Anything he could do to bring the war to a right issue he would do; but in suggesting a patched-up peace, as some people did, he should only be acting as a traitor to his country. A lasting peace could only be ob- tained by a mastery of the enemy. A league of nations would be a grand thing; but how was it to be accomplished? They could not come to terms with a man-eating tiger. (Hear, hear.) He congratulated Cardiganshire on the acquisi- tion of St. Dogmaels who had never failed to give him a true and hearty welcome and he also congratulated women on the extension to them of the franchise for which he had always voted. They had won the vote by their own conduct during the war. (Hear, hear.) The Education Bill would open out a great and new vista to the boys and girls of this country. Continuance in school for a longer period would be a great advantage. He hoped the teachers would feel that the importance of their work had now been recognised. When Mr. Thomas and Mr. Jenkin James sent him a statement of what the schoolmasters and others had done in collecting E288,000 in war savings he could hardly believe it. (Cheers.) With re- gard to that question of vital Interestr-the drink question—4ve believed in temperance and would to the utmost of his power support a Bill putting control more in the hands of the people. With regard to federation and home rule he had been in favour of home rule ever since he had been in Parliament and was not likely to oppose it when the principle was applied to Wales. The Imperial Parliament could not do the work and he believed it was only a. matter of time when Ireland, Scotland, and Wales would have an opportunity of man. aging their own affairs by their own people. (Cheers.) Saying he was prepared to answer any question, The Rev. R. J. Rees Oked what about the disenfranchisement of the conscientious ob- jector ? Mr. Vaughan Davies replied that he was glail the subject had been mentioned as he was anxious to have the matter cleared up. He was not going to sail under false colours and say one thing and do another, but act rightly and honestly by his constituents and according to his pledges. The question was, what was the "con- scientious objector? Some people in Cardigan- shire thought he voted against the conscientious objector to military service. He knew that con- scientious objection was part of the Nonconform- ist creed. Was it likely he should vote against one of the most acute questions of Noncon- formity? When the Bill came before the House and the question arose how were conscientious objectors to be met, Sir George Cave said he was sure no member wished to do anything against the conscientious obiector to military service. Under the old procedure a conscienti- ous objector had to go before one magistrate and if he could prove Ms case that IWIg-is- trate could grant him release. Under the Bill for which he voted the conscientious objector could go before a tribunal and if he satisfied the tribunal he got his discharge from military ser- vice and did not lose his vote. The man he lute(* a £ ainst was the man who was asked by the Government, "Will you do something to help your country during the crisis of this "w-n man rePiied> "No. I will not." Will you go to the woods and heln to cut down trees?" "No, I will not." "Will you go on to the railway or on to a farm or work on anything to show that you have done some- thing for the good of your country?" It there- fore did nat bring in the question of conscienti- ous objection to military service, but the ques- tion of a man who would not do to help his country. He said that if a man would not heip his country by doing something for it he did not deserve the vote. (Cheers.) Many people misunderstood the Act. They thought when he voted against the old law of goin« before a mag strate that he voted against the con- scientious objector. No man living could read the papers without seeing that the conscientious objector to-military service was in a stronger position than ever before. If Nonconformists were going to protect every lazy man who said' hIS conscience would not allow him to fell a tree or plant potatoes when his country wanted those things done there was an end to it- Mr. T. J. Samuel, Aberystwyth, said he was not going to champion the conscientious ob- jector; but Mr. Vaughan Davies voted for the di>enfranchisevnent clause and the vote was only granted by subsequent provisos. Mr. Lima Jones, Aberayron, said that if those who criticised Mr Vaughan Davies thought they were right let them test it at the next election and he promised them that he would be returned with a more triumphant ma.joritv than ever before. Aberystwyth was not the whoje county He had as many facilities of judging the feeling of the countv as Aberyst- v.jth and Mr Vaughan Davies could never feelin*1 f ier "ht,Lhan on ^at question The Sted nri.lv Tf X .WaS f*1 iU member had acted noWy.

Sir William Robertson Sticking it out" is largely a question of nerves—so if your nerves are war-weary you should help them by taking Sariatogen. ■ I felt I couldn't stick it out much longer"— writes Sergt. T. Robertson 275 Field Battery. R.G.A., France)-" but my wife thoughtfully sent me a tin of Sanatogen, and it has. bucked me up no end f Men and women in civil life are no less appreciative of Sanatogen for example, Viscountess French says she "finds it most excellent," and Sir Edward Marshall Hall. M.P., writes I purpose taking a course of Sanatogen in this nerve-trying period." And Sanatogen is not only a true nerve restorative—it is also a true food, ensuring perfect nutrition of the whole body. Thus, two doses of it give you as much nourishing proteid as a pint of whole milk-though of course it is not made from whole milk, only the proteid being used-and it costs you only twopence per dose. It is not, therefore, a question of Can I afford Sanatogen ? but Can I afford to be without it ? I Determine to try II SANATOGEN THE GENUINE FOOD-TONIC. Your chemist may be unable to supply you with Sanatogen at once, for the great demand from military r • hospitals, etc., has caused a temporary shortage. But our Penzance factory is rapidly increasing its output, so don't put up with imitations or counterfeits, but wait till you can get genuine Sanat- ogen. It is still sold at its original prices- from 1/9 to 9/6 per tin- and the sole manufacturers are Genatoran, Ltd. (British Purchasers of Sanatogen Co.), 12, Chenies Street, London, W.C.
