VISIT OF MR. HERBERT LEWIS, M.P. Enthusiastic Public Meeting. Suggested Library for the Village. A Generous Offer. There was an overflowing audience at the Wesleyan Schoolroom on Saturday night last week in response to the announcement that Mr Herbert Lewis, M.P. for Flintshire, would address his constituents. The chair was taken by Rev John Lloyd Hughes. The other speakers were Mr Griffiths (Chester) and Mr Hughes (Flint). The chairman, in according a welcome to Mr Lewis, spoke very highly of his Parlia- mentary labours. Referring to the Govern- ment itself, Mr Lloyd Hughes delivered a, stirring address, rousing considerable enthu- siasm amongst the audience. Mr Lewis, who was received with loud cheers, said it was his intention to review briefly the work done in Parliament during the past term. He referred to the Small Holdings of Scotland and Trades Disputes Bills, also the Education Bill. The Disestab- lishment and Disendowment question for Wales had received the attention of prominent Welsh members of late, said Mr Lewis. Since the Cardiff conference of the Welsh members this matter had been placed on the agenda. The Prime Minister would be sure to bring it before the House in the 4th session next year, and he (Mr Lewis) was confident the Bill would pass in that session. Should the Lords reject these Bills the Premier had said that the will of the people must prevail." (Applause). Mr Griffiths (Chester) in a short speech, moved a vote of confidence in the Government. This was seconded by Mr Hughes (Flint), the new Liberal agent for the County. Dr Lloyd Owen moved a vote of confidence in our Member (Mr Lewis), who, he said, was worthy of the highest confidence of his constituents. This was seconded by Mr Thomas Roberts (Sea View). Both motions were carried unanimously. Mr Lewis acknowledged, after which he said he would like to see a library opened in Ffynnongroew for the benefit of the young men. He advocated a library supported by voluntary subscriptions, and promised to subscribe to it to the extent of half the cost. Mr Arthur Hughes thanked Mr Lewis for his interest in the welfare of Ffynnongroew. and for his generosity in regard to the pro- posed library, feeling sure he was voicing the opinions of other young men in what he said. They were greatly in need of an in- stitution of this character at Ffynnongroew, but the question of means had baffled them in the past. There was a class of men in the village worthy of interest being taken in them. They were notable for sobriety, and were persevering and anxious to attain a wider knowledge in literature, being also fully conscious of the use of books in the making of good men and good citizens. Dr Owen and Mr Thomas Roberts (Sea View) supported all Mr Hughes had said. The matter was submitted to the meeting, and it was carried unanimously that they have a library as mentioned by Mr Lewis. A committee was formed consisting of mem- bers from all the local places of worship. Dr E. Lloyd Owen was appointed chairman and Mr Arthur Hughes, Secretary. The com- mittee decided to meet next Saturday for discussion.
