THE RESIGNATION OF A WELSH MEMBER. THE announcement that Mr. David Eandell, the member for the Gower division of Gla- morganshire, is about to apply forthwith for the Chiltern Hundreds, in order to become a candidate for certain public offices at Llan- eily, will not come as a surprise to those who know at what sacrifice Mr. Randell has performed his Parliamentary duties. Mr. Randeil is a solicitor in good practice at Llanelly. He has acted for years as solicitor to the Tinplaters' Union of South Wales, and when a vacancy occurred in the repre- sentation of the Gower division by the death of Mr. Yeo, the constituency, which ;s largely composed of workers in the tinplate indus- try, fell to Mr. Randeil. His special know- ledge of industrial questions has secured for him a respectful hearing in the House, while his sympathy with labour has not dimin- ished his loyalty to the cause of Liberalism. He has outlived the opposition that was at one time felt to his candidature among the leading Liberals in hissconstifctrency, and he was returned at the last election by a few votes short of 4,000. His seat is an abso- lutely safe one to the Liberals, though his sudden resignation finds the Liberal party unprepared with a candidate. There are several eligible local men who would worth- ily represent the constituency in Parlia ment, and it is not likely that with excellent local material the Liberal Association will repeat the old policy of selecting an out- sider.
