MR. A. J. WILLIAMS, M.P., AT PENYGRAIG. ENTHUSIASTIC PROCEEDINGS. On Tuesday evening a crowded meeting of the electors of the South Glamorganshire Division was held at Tai Schools, Penygraig, under the presidency of Councillor Idris Williams (Porth), to hear an address by Mr. A. J. Williams, M P. Alderman Moses moved a. resolution in favour of the Suspensory Bill, and it was supported by Mr. W. Mayne and the Rev. Mr. Davies, Williams- town. Mr, Arthur J. Williams, M.P., in supporting the resolution, explained the provisions of the Bill, and remarked that he had very little doubt that the Second Chamber would reject first of all the Government of Ireland Bill, and also the Sus- pensory Bill, if they passed through the Houae of Commons. Personally, he was glad they were APPROACHING THE GREAT ISSUE between the people and the hereditary body. (Cheers.) He wanted to have that matter settled one way or another; and he knew how it would be settled and the sooner it was settled the better for the country. (Loud cheers.) It would be better for Wales and better for the future of the Liberal party. (Cheers.) He had received a num- ber of letters from different parties stating that the Suspensory Bill, if it became law, would injure religion but he did not believe that. The Church of Ireland sustained a great strain when it was disestablished, but, from all accounts, it after- wards regained its vitality and its vigour, and its power increased considerably. (Cheers.) The Church in Wales had his entire sympathy. It had been in swaddling clothes for centuries, and the Liberal party asked her to cast aside the support to which she was not entitled and sustain herself. (Cheers.) THE 31 WELSH LIBERAL MEMBERS HAD MADE UP THEIR MINDS to render most cordial support to the Bill, and he ventured to state that the Liberal Government had not a more sturdy lot of Radicals than these Welsh members. (Loud cheers.) It was scarcely to be credited that any Nonconformists had signed a petition against the Suspensory Bill, which was only a preliminary act of justice to themselves. Their opponents might obtain thousands upon thousands of signatures, but his answer to them was—he had thirty determined colleagues out of the thirty-four members representing Wales. (Cheers.) He believed that the Government would live for several years, and before the dissolution it would have achieved greater <vork. more enduring and monumental work, than any known in the his- tory of this country, and in the history of man- kind. (Loud cheers.)
