LORD WINDSOR APPOINTED LORD-LIEUTENANT OF GLAMORGANSHIRE. Lord Windsor, chairman of the Barry Dock and Railways Company, has been appointed Lord-lieu- tenant and Custos Rotulorum of Glamorganshire, in room of the late Mr Talbot, M.P. The Western Mail of Monday last, referring to the appointment stated :â We sincerely congratulate Lord Windsor upon his appoint- ment to the Lord-lieutenancy of the premier county of Wales. Not the less sincerely "do we congratulate the people of Glamorgan upon their new Lord-lieutenant. Beyond a doubt an excellent choice has been made. The appointment will be popular to classes and masses alike. We stated a week or two ago that the appointment lay between Lord Windsor and Lord Tredegar. The fact that Lord Windsor is more closely identified with then county than Lord Tredegar was questionably deemed a weighty consideration. Many people nursed the hope that Sir John Llewelyn would be chosen. The hope testified to the popularity of the baronet of Penller- gare among his countrymen. But its realisation was from the outset improbable. In addition GO the fact that Sir John has but recently received a mark of his Sovereign's favour in the creation of his baronetcy, it is generally understood that Her Majesty is strongly disposed to the appointing of peers to Lord-lieutenancies when the services of peers are available. Many reasons combine to render the selection of Lord Wind- sor a happy one. A great territorial magnate, upholding the best traditions of the class, lie is a nobleman' of broad and liberal views, especially in relation to the land laws. Lord Windsor is a staunch supporter or the principle of leasehold enfranchisement. Indeed, the current belief in well-informed circles is that his lordship has drafted a measure embodying his views on the subject for introduction into the House of Lords, and has only been restrained from submitting it by the strong representations made by some of the older peers. Lord Wind- sor's services (.0 the Conservative party have been such as to establish a claim which the Government could not possibly overlook. That which the people of the Principality know to have been done by his lordship for the party in Wales forms but a small part of his services to Conservatism. Lord in the cause Windsor is an exceedingly generous and active Conservative in Warwickshire, where tie contributes largely to the financial and literary success of the Birmingham. Gazette, the Constitu- tional organ of the district. When that paper was in financial difficulties it was Lord Windsor who, in his devotion to the cause, came forward to help it with an unstinting hand. Services of this kind may not appeal to the popular imagination, but they are of a kind which do more to advance the interests of a great cause than many others of a more sensational char- acter. The social qualities of Lord Windsor are too widely known and appreciated to call for more than a passing reference. Good wine needs no bush." Nor need no gener- ous instincts be extolled when less than a week ago we ieported the quiet, unostentatious offer of a gift to Penarth worth not less than Bll.OOO. There is scarcely a church within many miles of Cardiff-and scarcely a public institu- tionâwhich does not bear testimony in some form or other to the good heart and ready hand of Lord Windsor. We doubt not that many people in this district will be tempted to link Mr Robert Forrest to Lord Windsor in the Lord-lieutenancy. Mr Forrest has done so much in initiating beneficent schemes in the neighbourhood, has so perseveringly and successfully laboured to develope its resources, has won such general esteem that people will insist upon seeing a part of Lord Windsor's honour reflecting back upon the genial adminis- trator of the Windsor Estate. A Lord-lieutenant of noble and ancient lineage, who is a good landlord, an active and gener- ous philanthropist, a discriminating patron of the arts, who is gifted with a wide knowledge of men, and has broad sympathies and a rare amiability, is as acceptable a gift as a Sovereign can bestow upon a section of her subjects. And such a gift has been bestowed upon the people of Glamorgan -the county, next to Surrey, the most progressive in Great Britain.
