1 CONSERVATIVE MEETING NEAR SWANSEA. Speech by a Probable Tory Candidate. A meeting of the Morriston branch of the Gla- morganshire Conservative Association was held on Thursday evening, in a room at the village of Llangefelaeii. about six miles from Swansea. Dr Morgan presided, and there were also present Mr J. T. D. Llewelyn (a probable candidate for one of the seats which will be given to Glamorgan- shire by the Redistribution Bill), Dr. Paddon, Mr J. C. Vye Parminter, and a number oi farmers and others. The CHAIRMAM having opened the proceedings, Mr LLEWELYN, who was very heartily r-cej I delivered an address. Having described th j cause of the introduction of a Redistribution BiÃJ. and expressed his satisfaction at the comproniu* which had been arrived at between trie t\v parties, he pointed out the considerations v.'hion had led the Government to take members fron: the thinly populated districts of Wales and give:; them to Glamorganshire. The one point (;1. which there seemed to be a difference of opmio;; "n s with respect to Kilvbebyll, which Sir Hmscv Vivian suggested should be given to the l'i"u district. That question even would not afiect those present. The only thing for them to do was to remain quietly in an attitude of observation, and merely prepare to act at the right time. He proceeded You know my relations to Mr Talbot, the older of the two members for the county who has represented us for over fifty years, and during which time he has gained such great experience, and occupies -so peculiar a position both in the county and in the Parliament of England as will, I think, almost entitle him to a seat for whichever part of the county he may choose to sitâ(applause)âand I feel personally that I would not oppose himâ(hear, hear)âand I would use influence to see him returned unopposed for any portion of the county he may choose to select. (Applause.) But, having held this opinion for some time, and having said I would not oppose him, it becomes a very different thing when there are five seats. Other people will come forward, and I don't pledge myself at present as to what I shall do. I am: as I advise you to be, in a position of watchfulness as to what course events will take and as to what decisions the commissioners will come (_4 1 .v..) Having expressed his political o. ir.ouo, he bid lie bad lived amongst them all hi; de, aDd. he was sure they had seen he had tried t bis rlnty n his neighbours. (Applause.) He h, ri E< ver been in any way dictatorial or oppress"?,; and his one hope was to do his best to maint: r. the constitu tion of the country, because he it Lad made England a great nation, i- r-iu_, iiud envied by all other nations. (Hear, hear.) Speaking of the disendowment of the Church of England in Wales, he said at the right time he should be prepared to show to any politician that disendowment would be impolitic, a wrong, and a distinct violation of the principles of religious freedom, and, moreover, very prejudicial to the interests of religion generally. Dr PADDON next delivered an address, and dur- ing it there were expressions of dissent which snowed that all present were not of the same way of thinking. Mr RICHARDS followed in Welsh, after which it was resolved to form a branch of the association at Llangyfelach, and to appoint Air John Thomas, of Clase, hon. secretary.
