NATIONAL CONSERVATIVE LEACUE. I Ledbury Members Visit Woroeeter. The members, of the Sir Richard Temple Lodge of the National Conservative League, who visited the Ledbury Lodge of the League last November, received a visit from the members of that Lodge on Thursday evening in last week, when an enjoyable smoking concert was held at the Golden Hart, Sansome-street. Mr W E Baynham (Deputy-Master) presided, and among those present were-Alderman A H Constance, Deputy Provincial Grand Master; Ledbury brethren-Bros W L Pritchett (Master of the Ledbury and District Lodge), H Cotton (Chairman of the Executive Committee), W Mansell (secretary), W Brookes (treasurer), T E Hewins, C Jakeman, J Partridge, H Curnock, C Smart, H B Whyld, G H Henner, C Locke, J Godwin, L Devereaux, J Smith, W Williams, F Parsons and A Short. Wor- cester brethren Bros E T Bennett, H Yoxall (secretary), J Sewell (Conservative Agent), A 0 Needham, C F Brown, R Howard, P Watson, F H Cooper, W Carey, F H Wilding, W Elcock, P O'Rourke, R T Lewis, G Maeon, W Lee, Forman, T B Hunt, Winzer, H Morriss, G Cooper, W Hunter, R H Viner, H Lawson, W R Wing- field, C H Brown, J Jones. Apologies were received from Councillors A Carlton and A A Maund. Alderman Constance proposed The Visitors." He said they were delighted to welcome their Ledbury friends. They had a very enjoyable evening last year when the Ledbury friends visited them, and that gathering was equally enjoyable. They were glad to know that the League was doing such excellent work in Ledbury. He understood that their respected Member, Captain Clive, was to be opposed at the next election, but he felt certain that their opponent would never defeat their Member. The Conservative League were .fighting for what they considered to be the interests of the Empire. (Hear, hear). The Government did not tell the electors when they were returned that they would pass a Home Rule Bill, and, therefore, they had the right to demand that there should be an appeal to the country before that measure was passed. Sir Edward Carson was taking up a very strong attitude, but he was perfectly justi- fied. (Applause). He had made enormous sacrifices in the great effort he was making to save the people of Ulster from this tyrannical measure. The Government re- mained in power because of the fact that they voted Z400 a year to each of their supporters. The Unionist Party objected to the principle of payment of Members, and he hoped that they would stop that payment. Mr Pritchett, in reply, said the Worcester brethren had given them a capital entertain- ment, and had also been most hospitable. It gave them great pleasure to welcome the Worcester members to Ledbury, and he hoped that the cordial relations between the two lodges would continue for many years. He believed that the great strength and the increasing popularity of the League were due to the fact that it was a great brother- hood, and he regarded it as the greatest organisation ever founded in support of the Conservative cause. In Herefordshire their leaders, and particularly Captain Clive, were awake to the fact that the success of the Party was in the hands of the League. They had no doubt in Ledbury but, that they would be able to return their excellent Member with an increasing majority. The following contributed to a very enjoyable musical programme :-Messrs. Elcock, Wilding, senior and junior, W Machell, W Brookes, Forman, C Lock, H B Whyld (Ledbury), and H Lawson. Mr Elcock acted as accompanist.
