To the Electors of the South I Glamorgan Parliamentary Di^ion. QiEXTLEMEN,— Just six years ago you returned m&aL second time to Parliament with a majority of 1:3ro, more than doubling the substantial majority of close upon 600 with which you first elected m& I now for the third time, at the unanimous request of thie Liberal Three Hundred of the BJvasion. ask yon to send me back as your representative. Like LAbe rest of Wales, you were in 1886, tsae to your national instincts, your national aspirations, and your sense of justice. You did not -m.V'er when aor illustrious leader, Mr. Gladstone, proposed that great act of reparation, which will give- to Ireland a legislative body for the management of her own affairs, under the control of the Imperial Parlia- ment, and which will create a rea^ and enduring Union. The hesitation of England has., deferred Home Rule for six yaars. But the ti¡pe. has not been wasted so far a# Wales is concerned-. During that period her Litoral members, by a^T«is» and patriotic policy of concerted, determined;, and judicious action, hav^ obtained evsa. from a Con- servative Government, legislation for Wales and a recognition of her grievances and needs, of which the liberal party i-i, WaLes may well be proud. W^een that Govenypewt* in spite of its repeated ^somises, had foe. Session after Session neglected* to bring in a Bill- for giving Wales a proper system of Intermediate Education, the Welsh members brought in- a Bill of their own. By thei> protests and 5.$E$istent appeals to public opinion they compelled, the- Government to allow ¡ that Bill to be read, a, secotfcd time. Their united; ¡: efforts, well conside«?d; in, many conferences, and; successfully carried; into, effect by the ability, energy, and resouaee of individual members, pi»- verjsed the administration of Lord Salisbury frosa msjeing alterations, which under the disguise of amendments, would have-rendered our Bill wwsc t'aan useless, liy, depriving the Joint Edumtion committee of its. representative character, vMoh would have excluded- Monmouthshire frcvoa its blessings, anj;w,hichi would have greatly narrowed its scope anj^value in other ways. In the same way the Welsh Liberal members forced the. Tory and dissentient Liberal party, with a great majority at its back, to. withdraw ignolqiwoqsly two Tithe Bills and to x*odify their third "eithe Bill,, whilst they obtained in the in- terest of Wales -important amendwnts of the Loc&J) Government Bill and of otlfce-r Bills. And lastly they have brought the question of Welsh Bisestablishment and Disendowmeat so effectively before the Country, that it has been accepted as second only to Home Rule for Ireland, on tbla programme of the Liberal party. I have been amply rewarded for such part I have been able to, take in this important and responsible work, by finding that these years of trial and anxiety have only strengthened your faith in my earncatness and sincerity, a.nd have tmly increased »\vtual symp^^f regard, I therefore repeat the significant words with which I concluded my address six years ago. I am sure you will send me back with a still larger majority, to assist Mr. Gladstone in Completing the noble work of Justice to Ireland which he has begun. When that? is done we may fairly put forward an irresistible demand for justice to Wales, for religious equity, and a broad alld com- prehensive measure of ioeal government, which will enable us to managw our own .affairs in accordance with our National wants and wis heir.* I am, Gentlemenr Your faithfuf Servant, ARTHUR A- WILLIAMS.
