SELECTION OF MR C. R. M. TALBOT. A meeting of the executive of the Mid-Glamor- gan Liberal Association was held at the Indepen- dent Chapel, Briton Ferry, on Monday last, to finally decide upon a candidate to represent that division. Dr Davies, the president of the associa- tion, occupied the chair. There were fnearly 100 delegates present, but none attended from Ogmore Valley or Tondu. Mr Pon. darves Vivian, the president of the Aber- avon Association, was among those present. The Secretary read the minutes,, and then tho replies of the various gentlemen who had been selected as candidates, viz. Mr Talbot. Mr Abel Thomas, Mr R. Ã. Burnie, Mr Thomas Wil- liams (Merthyr), Mr John Cory, and Mr Cyril Flower. All declined to stand except Mr Talbot. Mr Talbot's letter (which we published yesterday) having been read, Mr LLEWELLYN HOWELL (Aberavon) proposed, "That Mr C, R. M. Talbot be accepted as the Liberal candidate for Mid-Glamorgan." Ho pointed out that that gentleman had made great progress towards the views they, as an associar- tion, held. During a long political career Mr Talbot had supported the Liberal party with one option and he was glad to find that he had made concessions on that one pointâHome Ruleâwhich would bring him more in unison with their views. (Applause.) After a long parliamentary career this last act would redound to his lasting credit. (Applause.) had found siucetho formation of their association many who had expressed advanced views had lagged behind. That being so, they ought to extend their sympathy to Mr Talbot, who bad seen sixty years of public life, and had at the close expressed such advanced views. He was glad to find that they had now only one candidate to choose from and he was one of the brightest and most matured intellects of the House of Com- mons. (Applause.) Alderman DAVID (Aberavon) seconded the, proposition. Mr Talbot had seen many changes m the House of Commons, but through aU those changes the pledges he gave to the electors had been faithfully carried out. The Rev. JOlIN DAVDtS (Glyn Neath) thought Mr Talbot, by his recent vote on Home Rule, was more of a Paper Unionist than a Gladstonian supporter. Considerable discussion took place on this point and on the views of Mr Talbot on other matters before the country, bat the resolution was eventually carried unanimously. Further discussion ensued on a motion pro- posed by a Briton Ferry delegate that Mr Talbot should be called upon to support Mr Gladstone's general Irish policy unreservedly. The motion was carried after expunging the word" unre- servedly," A sum of ten guineas was voted to Mr W. R. Thomas, the secretary of the association, for his arduous services during the past 18 months. On the motion of Mr PENDARVES VIVYAN (who promised every help he could give to the associa- tion), a vote of thanks to the chairman for pre- siding was carried by acclamation.
