THE REPRESENTATION OF I MONMOUTHSHIRE. I Great Liberal Meeting at Chepstow. A crowded Liberal meeting was held at Chap.- stow on Wednesday evening. Dr Yeats pre- sided, and was supported by Sir Henry Jackson, MrT. C. Prioe, and Mr C. M. Warmington (the Liberal candidates for the county). Mr Moer- fridge, the Revs J. B. Quaid, and A- T. )avies, Mr H. Gilham, and others. Mr Sergent proposed the following resolution s— That this meeting of Liberal electors desires to express its unabated confidence in the liberal Govern- went, and its grateful appreciation of the patriotic exertions of the Right Hon.Mr Gladstone, (Applause). Mr BATLHACHE (Newport) seconded the motion. Sir HENTtT JACKSON, ia supporting the resolu- tion, said there could be no doubt about the action of Mr Gladstone in coming to a compro- mise which the Tories asserted was in their favour being a thoroughly patriotic one. It had given an additional member to Monmouthshire, and had resulted m the creation of a new area to which Chepstow gave its name. He congratu- lated the town upon this fact, and from what he had seen be felt sure there was a strong Liberal feeling in the district, which he believed extended far beyond the boundaries of the town, and that, in having Cnepstow as a centre, the Liberal oarty had nothing to complain of, but, on the contrary, something to be very grateful for. (Applause.) Family ties were very well for a member to possess, but he could conceive topics such as the enfranchisement of leaseholds, when gentlemen who represented family connec- tions of the large landowning class would find their interest and that of their constituencies at variance, and it wouid booowie a question whether such members would support the interests of their constituents or allow family interest to be paramount. Personally, be was not at all afraid of the way in which the ag-ricultrral labotirer would vote. He should have liked to see a good county government scheme introduced before the Fran- chise Bill was passed, because by that means the electors would have been educated in smaller matters first. (Applause.) Mr WARMIKGTON referred to the struggle in which he assisted in the year 1880, and said it foreshadowJad the triumph which, he believed, would result from the enfranchisement of 16,000 to 17,000 voters in Mom>iouth>hjre. In tllat county the extension of the iranchise had never been advocated as a party measure. The new electors had a splendid inheritance. There was not a single benefit the wording man enjoyed The resolution was carried unanimously. Mr JOSEPH LLLis (Chepstow) proposed a reso- lution pledging the meeting to promote the return of a Liberal candidate for the newly-created division of the county. Mr PlucE, ia seconding the resolution, spoke of the hopefulness of the circumstances under which they met, aad adverted to the land question, advocating, as a remedy for the present agricul- tura! depression, free trade inland, better security for the tenant, and a. rnomequitable readjustment of rent. He denounced the proposed corn tax an insidious attempt to enrich 500,000 landowners and farmers r-t the expense of 30,000,000 of consumers, and said fair trade was only protection under another name. Mr Price also referred to the county boards, which the Government proposed to deal with, and said the measure was a good democratic measure which would imDrove the public spirit in counties, and enable people to control their own affairs. Resolutions approving of the princiyAes ex- pressed by Sir Henry Jackson, and thanking Messrs Wanningbon and Prioe for their addresser, were passed. Mr MoeesiDGE complimented the meeting upon its orderly character, and said if Liberals would succeed in returning their three candidates, they must work hard, especially in the Chepstow division.
