MR S. T. EVANS, M.P. Meeting at Nantymoel. Mr S. T. Evans, M.P., addressed a large meet. ing on Monday night in the Workmen's Hall, Nantymoel. He touched briefly on the Educa- tion Act, expressing his sympathy with the pas- sive resistance nlcveiftent, and pointing out the difficulties which the Irish party and the House w of Lords would present when the Liberals returned to power and desired to remedy the existing state of things. The report of the War Commission was the most painful document anv citizen of this country could read. Mr Chamberlain and other members of the recent Cabinet prided themselves on being business men, but let tbem read that report and then say what sort of business men they were, (Applause.) As to Macedonia, he did not want the Government for the sake of Macedonia or any other country t) rusil and he was sorty to find that Mr Balfour had bad to admit that though he would like to do something for the unhappy country he was novverless. Dealing at consider- able length with- the fiscal question, Mr Evans said it was the working classes who would Buffer If Mr Chamberlain's proposals were carried out. Mr Chamberlain said that his scheme would cement the Empire together, but it would have the opposite effect, because even if Canada could be helped by preferential treatment of her "produce, there was nothing on which equal advantage could be given to Australia, whose oniy export of importance was wool-âa raw material which it was not proposed to tax. Hb maintained, that Mr Chamberlain had not proved that Riitish trade was anything but pro. gressive, and figures showed that ic had constantly increased recently. The iron and steel trade had been mentioned or Mr Chamber- lain, but on the export of iron and steel manufac- factures was four millions sterling more last year than two years ago and Guest, Keen and Co. were paying 10 per cent dividend. As to the tinplate trade the Board of Trade figures showed it bad increased since the imposition of the McKinley tariff. Coming to the effect of Pro- tection on the coal trade he said if a duty was placed on foreign manufactures, and they were considerably restricted the steamers which carried the coal would have no backward, freights, and the consequence would be that they would be withdrawn from the trade, and the coal would remain in the pits. A vote of confidence in Mr Evans was carried unanimously.
