THE VACANCIES IN THE COUNCILS. Tho Hon. Colonel Morgan, M.P., has issued his address for the St. Mellons division, vecant by the selection of Lord Tredegar as alderman. At a large gathering of ratepayers at Newport, Mr Councillor T. Jones was selected as the Liberal candidate to contest the seat rendered vacant in the Central Ward by the election of Mr D. A: Vaughan as alderman. The three Newport seats have now each aLiberal candidate, the other two gentlemen being Mr Mark Mordey and Mr Greenland. Much misapprehension prevails as to Mr Greenland's opponent in tho East Ward. It is not Dr Garrod Thomas, but Dr John Thomas, of Ctiepstow-road, who is in the field. ABSRDARE. In the Hirwain Division the Rev Richard Morgau, Aberdare, who contested the seat against Sir William Thomas Lewis, is again in the field. Dr Evan Jones, Aberdare, will oppose Mr Morgan. In the Cwmaman division—by reason uf the elevation of Mr White to the aldermanic bench—Mr Tuomas Davies, Abercwmboy, will contest the seat in the Liberal interest, and will in all probability be opposed by Mr William Thomas, J.P., Brynawel, Aberdare. BABBY AND CADOXTON. General H. Herbert Lee, of Dinas Powis, has been invited to contest this division as non- political candidate, and has consented to stand, PEMBROKE DOOK, The following have been nominated to fill the vacancy in the Pater Ward, caused by the election of Mr W. E. Seccombe (mayor) as alder- man, viz. :—Mr Thomas George Seccombe (L.), retired dockyard officer; Mr William Henry Gibby (C.), hotel keeper; and Mr Albert Edward Owen (L.), hairdresser. The election takes place on Friday next in the Albion-square Board Schoolroom, ABEBAITAN, A deputation, consisting of electors from the four divisions of No. 4 Ward, waited on Mr Thomas Davies, Abercwmboy J?arm, on Tuesday evening, inviting him to contest the seat rendered vacant by the selection of Mr T. P. White as alderman. Mr Davies consented to contest the seat in the Liberal interest, and will issue his address in a few days. AeBRISTWTTH. Alderman D. C. Roberts (ex-mayor of the borough) is the Liberal candidate for the seat at Aberystwyth rendered vacant on the election of Mr C. M. Williams (mayor) county alderman. BARRT. We are informed that General Lee, of Dinas Powis, has withdrawn his candidature for this division. It ia now probable that Mr J. C. Meggitt, the Liberal candidate, will be returned unopposed. His candidature has received almost unanimous support from all parts of the district, CTMMER. A meeting of representatives from all parts of th* above ward was held at the Cymmer Old Chapel on Wednesday evening, under the presidency of Mr J. P. Williams (Cilely), to select a candidate to fill the vacancy caused by the elevation 8f jjr Davies to the aldermanic chair. The final voting resulted as follows Mr T. Griffiths, 23 Mr T. P. Jenkins, 2. PONTABDULAI9. A public meeting of the ratepayers of Llandilo- Talybont was held at the Board Schools, Pontar- dulais, on Tuesday evening, to select a candidate, Mr Rees Harries, Bolgoed, having been made an alderman. Air Harries presided. The Chair- man, after thanking the ratepayers present for returning him to the council, called upon Mr Freeman to address the meeting. Mr Freeman stated that he came out as a candidate in response to a large deputation that had waited npoa him. He then gave a full account of the work to be done by the county councils, and described the present act as the skeleton of a bill to be brought in by the next Liberal Government, which would fill in the sinews and muscles. Mr Henry Griffiths then proposed, and Mr Davies (Cambrian) seconded, "That this meeting, having heard Mr Freeman's: views, considers him a fit and proper person^ fro represent this district in the county ccuncit" This was carried unanimously, A hearty vote ot thanks to the chairman (Alderman Harries) terminated the meeting. BBSOLTEN. Mr J. Edwards Vaughan, of Rhodla, has issued his address as a candidate for Wits division. It is stated that Mr S. T. Evantfj M Neath, has been requested by the different Liberal Associations in the division to stand in the Liberal interest. STBATA FLORIDA. Two candidates are in the 6eld for the seat vacated on the election of the Earl of Lisburne as county alderman, viz.. Mr David Jenkins, Black Lion Hotel, Pontrbydfeudigaid (Liberal), and the I Rev John Jones, head-master of Ystradmeurjg ) School (Conservative). a L,. YSTBAD. A ..public meeting of the electors of this ward* including Pentre, Ton, Cwmpark, and Heolfach, was held on Tuesday evening, for the purpose of selecting a candidate in place of Mr W. Jenkins (Ystradfechan House), who has been appointed alderman. Three names were submitted, viz., Mr David Thomas, checkweigher, Ton Mr E. H. Davies, Fentre and Mr John Rees, Ton. Mr Davies withdrew before the question went to a ballot. After a good deal of discussion, Mr Thomas was selected by a large majority. ABERAVON. In consequence of the election of Mr Richard Jdnkina as a county alderman, it will be necessary to hold another election of councillor for the Aberavon Electoral Division. Already Mr R. Cook Jenkins (L), the son of the before-named gentleman, has issued bis address to the electors. The defeated candidate at the former election, Mr J. M. Smith (I), the present mayor of the borough, will again contest the seat. COWBRIDGE. Mr Rees Thomas, of Boverton, farmer, has been accepted as the Liberal candidate by the Cowbridge Liberal Association, to fill the divisional vacancy on the Glamorgan County Council caused by the election of Mr Thomas Rees, mayor, as an alderman. CARDIGAN. Mr Levi James, one of the members for this division, having been made an alderman, the Rav John Williams, Baptist minister, one of the unsuccessful candidates at the last election, has 'i^mfied his intention of again coming; forward. It is probable that Mr Williams will have a walk over." LOWER PENYDARREN WARD. A meeting of Mr David Daviea's supporters was held on Monday night at Horeb Chapel, Penydarren, the Rev J. Thomas in the chair. Among the speakers was Alderman Thomas Williams. A vote of confidence in the candidate was carried unanimously. A public meeting was addressed on Friday night at Penydarren Board Schools by Mr C. Henry James. Mr C. Henry James, High-constable of Merthyr, gave an exposition of his views at a public meeting at Penydarren Schools on Tuesday night, Mr J. Jones (Manchester House) presiding. A hearty vote of confidence was passed in Mr James. PONTYPRIDD. Several Liberal gentlemen are named as probable candidates for the vacancy caused in the Townabd Rhondda Ward by be elevation of Mr Walter H. Morgan to tbe aldermanic bench, but so far there has been no sign of any movement in the Conservative camp, and it is pretty generally rumoured that Mr Gordon Lenox will not again offer his services to the electorate. Provided, therefore, the Liberal party in the division will be fairly unanimous in their selec- tion of candidatej a contest can be avoided. This (Wednesday) evening the respective qualifications of the candidates who are already named will be discussed at three public meetings of the voters, held simultaneously in Gyfeillon, Pontypridd, and Coedpenmaen, who will elect tea per cent, of their number to meet ou a subsequent day at the Pontypridd Town-hall, where a final selection will be made. Those now nam»;d are Messrs David Cule, Henry Hopkins, H. T. Wales, W. Jones (who retired on the last occasion in favour of Mr Walter H. Morgan), Hopkin Smith Davies, and Thomas Morgan (Vron).
