MR DAVID DAVIES, M.P., AND THE RADICALS. On Friday, Mr David Daries, M.P., presided at a Foresters' club festival at Caersws, Mont. In re- sponding to the toast of his health, he said be had been threatened about his seat, and they said be was becoming Tory. There were some good points about Tories, but he did not like Radicals, because they would take another man's property. He hoped they would be governed by neither of those parties, but keep in the middle, and have no extreme measures, for nothing ruined the country so much as for the people to lose confidence in the Govern- ment. If they sent a man to the House of Commons he should not be bound to support any clique. No the Liberals did not please him. He voted against them. He had to do so last session, this one, and would do the next also, if he thought proper. If a man would not do that they might as well send a boy to represent them. The Liberal club, of which he was chairman, had threatened him. He did not say it was his constituents. The men who threatened him once would never threaten him a second time, and he should not forget it. He found that there were more Radioals now, and he should have to become a Tory he was a long way off that yet, but he was going very fast in that di- rection. Another correspondent says Mr D. Davies, M.P., said he had no difference with his con- stituents but the Liberal Club had passed a resolu- tion calling upon him to support the Government in the Irish Land Bill. He objectPd to the proposal for dealing with private property in the Bill, aud be would not allow a Liberal Club to threaten him. He should not, therefore, offer himself fur re- election.
