LONDON WOMEN'S TEMPERANCE UNION. Recently the General Committee of the above Union decided to take advantage of the wave of revivalism which has spread so effectually over London, by inviting Miss Pritchard, Birmingham, up to re-organize our Society. Miss Pritchard, who is well known to all Welsh people as the Secretary of the North Wales Temperance Union, accepted the invitation with her usual zeal, and devoted two weeks of her valuable time together with Miss Katie Roberts (Secretary of the Society) to real hard work. frequently holding two meetings in one day. Miss Pritchard held in all fourteen meetings, starting new branches in most of the churches, whilst re-organizing old ones in others. Very enthusiastic meetings were held, and Miss Pritchard's earnest appeals have been the means of strengthening the temperance cause consider- ably there are, however, a few churches left that Miss Pritchard had not time to visit, these are being worked up by the .most prominent members of the Society. The General Committee consists of Mrs. D. Lloyd-George, President; Miss Katie Roberts, Honorary Secretary Mrs. Timothy Davies, Treasurer. The General Committee is also attended by representatives of each branch, that is, President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Thus we are able to promote the temperance cause in all our Welsh Churches, and to show the young women coming up from Wales that they are not alone in the Metropolis, that they have a home and interested friends welcoming them. The meetings in the various churches are open to all, but the members must be total abstainers, and can purchase the pretty white enamelled badges from any of the Secretaries.
