Conway Municipal Election.


Conway Municipal Election. STIFF CONTESTS ANTICIPATED. At last the political parties in the borough have awakened to the fact that a municipal election is near at hand. After the next Council meeting three Conservatives and one .Liberal will retire after giving three years' service to the ratepayers. They are Messrs. James Porter, Edward Jones, and Fred J. Jones, representing the Conservatives, and the Liberal is Mr. Hugh Owen. During the week, there has been con siderable talk--a great deal of it idle talk-as to what is going to be done with the candidates. The chief question that will be put to the candi- dates, whoever they may be, will undoubtedly be whether they are in favour of the Territorials encamping on the Morfa. If not, that candi- date's chances of success are hopeless. Both the Liberal and Conservative parties have been reticent until this week, when the Liberals held a meeting at the Liberal Club, presided over by Mr. T. C. Lewis, the Chairman of the Liberal Association. There was a large attendance of influential Liberals, and the meet- ing turned out to be very enthusiastic, although one section attended purposelv for hustling one of the members of the Council, who was unfor- tunate in his remarks some months ago about the Territorials and the Golfers. The majority of the Liberal Councillors were present, and each one of them delivered a lucid address on the work of the Council, and gave an outline of what is to be done in the future. After some discussion it was resolved to elect three candidates to contest the three seats held by the Conservative party, and to allow De- ganwy to select their candidate to hold the seat which is now filled by Mr. Hugh Owen. Several names were suggested as probable starters," and it was ultimately decided to approach the three following gentlemen, with the view of their allowing their names to be nominated for the vacancies :-Messrs. J. P. Griffiths, Regent House J. W. Hughes, solici- tor, and John Jones, Berry-street. The final selection will be made this (Thurs- day) evening, when the deputation to see the gentlemen named will present their report. The Conservative party have laid low for some time, but at an informal meeting on Monday night at the Club. the agent (Mr. R. O. Pritchard) mentioned the question of the municipal elec- tion. A discussion ensued among those present, after which it was unanimously decided to ap- proach Mr. James Porter, with the view of his seeking re-election. It was also decided that the same deputation should approach another prominent Conservative gentleman, whose name was not disclosed. Messrs. Edward Jones and Fred Jones, who were present at the meeting, agreed to seek re election. Further meetings of the parties will be held during the course of this week.
