SOOTH WORCESTERSHIRE. [ The Prospective Liberal Candidate and I Agrioulture. A special meeting of the General Council of the South Worcestershire Liberal Associa- tion was held at the Town Hall, Evesham, on Friday, to meet Mr W Pearce Ellis, who was recommended as prospective candidate. Mr Ellis, who was born at Hampton Bishop, Hereford, in 1867, is a tenant farmer at Maisemore, Gloucester. He is a chairman of the Gloucestershire branch of the National Farmers' Union, a member of the Gloucester- shire Light Horse Breeding Committee, and vice-chairman of the Gloucester Milk Depot. Mr J E Newman presided at the meeting. Mr Pearce Ellis said he should fight the division on strong Liberal principles, and on the question of agriculture he should be entirely free of any party whip. He was out for the benefit of agriculture and for the people generally. He wanted to see agri- culture pot in such a position that every farmer had secqrity of tenure and the labourer also had security in his home. He did not think Mr Lloyd George at Bedford went far enough when speaking of security of tenure. He was in favour of a minimum wage for agricultural labourers, and he thought there should be wages boards in different districts. He was in favour of the disestablishment of the Church. He spoke against Tariff Reform, and said there would be no civil war in Ulster. Home Rule would make the Irish a happy people. Replying to questions, Mr Ellis said he f should like to see an elective Second Chamber. He was opposed to conscription, and in favour of the nationalisation of rail- ways. I f f..
