THE GENERAL ELECTION. ANGLESEY.âCaptain Rayner, the Conservative candidate for the county, addressed a meeting at Holyhead on Saturday. ANGLESEY (BOROUGH).âMr. Fanning Evans, of Amlwch, Government inspector of mines, has been induced to contest the borough of Anglesey in the Liberal interest, in opposition to Mr. Morgan Lloyd. On Saturday afternoon, the Conservative candidate for the boroughs, Capt. Pritchard Rayner, addressed an open-air meeting at Holyhead. Mr. T. F. Evans addressed a meeting at Holyhead on Wednesday night. CARDIFF.â-Mr. E. J. Reed, Liberal, issued his address on Saturday, seeking re-election. CARNARVON BOROUGHS.âThe Liberal Associ- ation have decided to support the candidature of Mr. Bulkeley Hughes, who comes forward for the tenth time, and have passed a resolution condemn- ing the action of Mr. Sorton Parry in trying to divide the party. Mr. Sorton Parry, who was high sheriff of Carnarvonshire in 1868, and resides at Bala, has met with no support, and his candi- dature is ridiculed. No Conservative opposition is threatened to Mr. Bulkeley Hughes, who is likely to enjoy for the second time in succession, an unopposed return. CARNARVONSHIRE.âTaking advantage of its being one of the principal fairs of the year, Mr. Watkin Williams, Q.C., the popular Liberal candidate for Carnarvonshire, on Monday visited Pwllheli. He received a hearty welcome at the railway station, and the carriage in which he, Mrs. Watkin Williams, and Mr. Roberts, chief agent of the Newsborougli estate, were seated, was dragged through the crowded streets. In the .9 afternoon he addressed a large open-air meeting. DENBIGH BOROUGHS.âA large and enthusiastic meeting of the supporters of the candidature of Sir Robert Cuncliffe was held at Wrexham on Monday evening. The chair was occupied by Mr. Charles Hughes, and the numerous speakers included Sir Robert Cuncliffe, Messrs., W. Low, W. H. Darby, W. Thomas, Lewis Ashworth, Charles Rooke, Revs. H. J. Haffer, David Roberts, E. Jerman, H. B. Williams, W. Tiller, and Rhys Jenkins. A vote pledging the meeting to do its utmost to secure the return of the honourable baronet was' carried amidst great applause.âA large and enthusiastic meeting in support of the'bandidature of Sir R. A. Cunliffe, Liberal, was held at Holt, on Saturday evening. The meeting Was addressed by Sir Robert in a very felicitous speech, and by several influential residents of the neighbourhood. On Monday night, under the presidency of Dr. lurnour, the Hon. G. T. Kenyon addressed his supporters at Denbigh. Mr. Kenyon contended that the Government, by a determined policy, prevented the Russian aggression in Europe. The Zulu war was necessary for the protection of the settlers, and the Afghan war to prevent Russia advancing on our Indian Empire. Notwith- standing the cost, no new taxation was added this year. He praised the Irish University Bills, and promised to support the claims of Wales for a Government grant for education. He believed the independent electors would by their verdict ratify the past actions of the Government. Sir R. Cunliffe met with a grand reception atDenbigh, on Tuesday night, a torchlight procession escorting him from the station to the Crown Hotel. He addressed the crowd.-The Hon. G. Kenyon addressed a meeting at Hellllan. DENBIGHSHIRE.âAt an influential meeting of the Liberal party in Denbighshire, at Wrexham, on Saturday, it was unanimously resolved that Mr. Osborne Morgan, the sitting member, be adopted as the Liberal candidate; and that under existing circumstances, Sir Watkin Wynn being the only candidate brought out by the Conservatives, no second Liberal candidate be brought forward. The meeting enthusiastically and unanimously pledged itself to support the candidature of Mr. Osborne Morgan in the event of a contest, and passed a cordial vote of thanks to him for his past services.-The Wrexham, Advertiser says: Sir Watkin Williams Wynn has issued his address to the electors of Denbighshire. In it he pointsâas point with pride he mayâto the connection which has existed between him and his constituents for eight parliaments. Sir Watkin also promises that, if re-elected, he will give his earnest and best attention to the interests of the electors both general and local. Though Sir Watkin has been a consistent supporter of the Tory party and the present Government, his politics are known to be of a mild order, and moreover the social connection of the hon. baronet is such as to secure to him a support and confidence far higher than that of pure party politics, and while Sir Watkin recognises this influence the Liberal party in the county will recognise and respect it also. The traditions of Wynnstay have not always been Conservative, any more than those of Knowsley, and we shall always hope to see Sir Watkin appreciating the cool judgment and following thewise policy of Lord Derby. Mr.Osborne Morgan's address is also to be found in our columns, and he appeals-as with confidence he mayâto the work he has done as a politician since first entrusted by the Liberal party in 1868 with the representation of this county. Mr. Morgan has eminently justified the choice of the electors, and we feel sure that the constituency electing him twelve years ago, as an unknown and untried candidate, will repeat their former verdict on this occasion, even should the threatened opposition come to anything more than threats. Such a position would arouse the united power of the whole Liberal party into enthusiastic auction in support of their foremost member in North Wales. FLINT BOROUGHS.âA meeting of Conservatives connected with these boroughs was held at the Queen's Hotel, Chester, on Tuesday, when Mr. P. P. Pennant decided to stand for the representation, in opposition to Mr. John Roberts. Mr. John Roberts addressed a meetins: at Flint, on Wednesday. MERIONETHSHIRE.âMr. Dunlop, of Tan-y- bwlch, has consented to contest this county in the Conservative interest, against Mr. Holland, the present member. PETERBOROUGH.âCaptain Whalley is the adopted candidate of the advanced Liberal Association of Peterborough. SHREWSBURY.âThe announcement that Lord Newry, son of the Earl of Kilmorrey, a Shropshire landowner, and Mr. Scoble, Q.C., a barrister, would contest in the Conservative interest the seats now held by Messrs. Cotes and Robertson (whose address is now advertised) has thrown the town into a state of excitement. Shrewsbury is always a very lively place at election times, and the present contest promises to prove one of the warmest on record. DASTARDLY OUTRAGE. After a very successful meeting on Wednesday at Bethesda, Mr. Pennant's stronghold, the carriage containing Mr. and Mrs. Watkin Williams and Mr. and Miss Gee, of Denbigh, was stoned. Mr. Williams was wounded in the eye, and Miss Gee in the face.
