Political Notes. The final meeting for the purpose of selecting a Liberal candidate for Swansea District in the place of Mr. Wm. Williams who will not seek re-election, was held at Neath on Saturday last. Meetings had been previously held throughout the district, and resolutions had been passed by the various sections. The returns received from those meetings showed that Mr. Llewelyn Williams, one of the assistant- editors of the South Wales Daily News had received 57 votes, and Mr. Brynmor Jones, Q.C., 114. Upon this fact being made known Mr. Llewelyn Williams expressed his desire to retire from the contest, and Mr. Jones was thereupon unanimously adopted candidate. Mr. Brynmor Jones is the son of the late Rev. Thomas Jones the poet-preacher of Wales, and was born at Morriston, within the Swansea District Div- ision, 43 years ago. He has represented the Stroud Division of Gloucestershire in Parliament since 1892. He will not of course fight that division again, and it is rumoured in South Wales that Llewelyn Williams, his rival for the Swansea District will do so. The meetings of the National Liberal Federation were held at Cardiff yesterday, and are continued to-day. Lord Rosebery is present, and will be the principal speaker at the public meeting to be held this evening. This is the first occasion for a Prime Minster to take part in the proceedings of the National Liberal Federation. The Cardiff Town Council have resolved not to present the freedom of the borough to Lord Rosebery. The Conservatives of the Denbigh Boroughs at Wrexham on Monday last, initiated a movement for presenting a testimonial to the Hon. George T. Kenyon, member for the boroughs, who is retiring at the forth-coming general election. The Liberal Publication Department has just issued an interesting pamphlet by Sir George Osborne Morgan on The Church of England and the people of Wales." The Daily News says it is written with great vigour, it contains most pertinent statistics, and it appears exactly at the right moment.
