WEST MONMOUTH LIBERALISM. ORGANISATION RESUSCITATED. A well-attended meeting in connection with the movement for the resuscitation of the Liberal 500 for West Monmouthshire was held at Nantyglo on Thursday evening, Mr Robert Thomas, New Tredegar, presiding. After reports of meetings held in various parts of the constituency had been given, Mr E. C. Grylls, Abertillery, moved that a Liberal 500 be formed for the division.—Alderman G. R. Harris, Nantyglo, in seconding, said there was a desire in the constituency for a new Five Hundred. In reviewing the past, they had to apologise for the nothing policy." When the present member for the division was selected it was as Liberal- Labour, but a change had taken place, although the Liberals had been faithful to the pledge. Almost the last words the late Sir William Har- court uttered to him were, Let us work as long as we can for the old cause, which is the legacy left to us." Alderman Harris said he hoped they would decide at that meeting to support the strongest Liberal Government that had ever been in power. Mrs D. J. Vaughan, Tredegar, said she was not a militant or of the volunteer army, but a con- verted Ulster woman. As she had lived in Ulster for many years they would understand that her ideas of English Liberalism were not very high while she remained there. Since she had been in South Wales, however, she had found that Liberalism had been grossly misrepresented, and she had to confess when visiting her old Ulster home that for bigotry and intolerance they had to go to the Orangemen. She btlieved that if Mr Asquith held firm to his policy everything would be right in the end. Speaking of the con- stituency she said West Monmouth was in her opinion, a Liberal seat handed over to Labour. They had to work for success, as victory came to those who worked and not to those who waited. The resolution was carried unanimously. It was decided to;invite Major-General Sir Ivor Herbert, Bart., M.P., to become president; Mr T. F. Salt, Abertillery, was elected chairman Mr Ebenezer Thomas, Tredegar, hon. secretary and Mr Alfred Jones, J.P., Ebbw Vale, treasurer. A sub-committee was also appointed to con- sider the draft constitution.
