LIBERAL CONVENTION AT RHYL. Many prominent Prcstatyn Liberals jour- neyed to Rhyl on Tuesday and Wednesday to take part in the meetings held in connection with the Welsh National Convention. Thou- sands of delegates from all parts of Wales were present. At the Queen's Palace, Rhyl, on Tuesday night, a reception was given to the delegates of the Welsh National Convention by Mr J. Herbert Lewis, M.P., and Mr J. Herbert Roberts, M.P. Some fifteen hundred ladies and gentlemen attended. The guests were received by Mr and Mrs Herbert Lewis, Mr and Mrs Herbert Roberts, Miss Roberts of Bryngwenallt, and Mrs Lloyd Roberts, Sir Alfred Thomas, M.P., arrived early, and, as the Chairman of the Welsh Parliamentary party was presented to many of the local leaders who were present. The other mem- bers of Parliament at the reception were Colonel Sir Ivor Herbert, Mr Ellis Griffith, Mr Wynforil Phillips, Mr W. Jones, Mr Jonu Williams, and Mr J. D. Rees. The prospec- tive Liberal candidate for the Flint Boroughs (Mr J. W. Summers) was also present, and was heartily congratulated. In the course of the evening the roof gardens and balcony, as well as the Palace hall, were available for promenading by the guests, who were enter- tained with music. On Wednesday afternoon Mr Lloyd George addressed a great meeting, every inch of the available accommodation at the Palace being occupied. He spoke of the grave crisis now before the country, and appealed to ail classes of the community to support him in every fair step he would take to put an end to it (applause). Continuing, the right hou. gentleman called attention to the comprehensiveness of the pro- gramme. It covered the whole ground of current political controversity. The three first resolution—dealing with the House of Lords, Disestablishment, and education questions- would be those on which most of their at- tention would be concentrated. They were probably more controversial and on that account they would appeal to every Welsh- mail (laughter and applause). With regard to the disestablishment resolution they would observe they had adopted bodily the resolu- tion carried unanimously at the great Cardiff' Convention. It represented the unanimous desire and unanimous demand of Welsh Liberalism, and they could not possibly recede from it (loud applause). By that reso- lution they stood or fell. Mr Haldane, Minister of War, addressed the evening meeting.
