GLOSSOP MURDERER REPRIEVED. George Alfred Smith, the young Glossop weaver, sentenced to death cjt Derbyshire Assizes for murdering his aunt at Glossop I by belabouring her with a rolling pin, has been reprieved. it was the remark witn regard to rort, xai- bot, and it was an insinuation that he could jiot. do his duty to Swansea because of that position. He begged them to believe that, the considerations of his business would never have militated against his doing any- thing for Swansea. (Hear, hear, and pro- longed enthusiasm.) Colonel Wright, explaining that Sir John had to leave the meeting, proposed a vote of thanks to him tor presiding. He had come a.t very great trouble to himself, and the speaker considered it an honour to re- ceive the presentation at his hands. (Hearj bear.) "Do you all say 'Ave'?" Colonel Wright asked. "Aye! Aye!" every voice thundered with pride, several people springing np to vent their feelings more satisfactorily. Responding, Sir John Llewelyn assured them he appreciated the honour and the thanks. It was always a pleasure and satis- faction to him to come amongst them, and he earnestly wished his health would 'allow him to be m as close touch with his old con- him to be In as close touch with his old con- stituents as he once was. Like a good oak frame to a noble, picture was the music served up. Rousing quar- tettes by the Tawe Glco Party displayed some tip-top talent, and individual sin^in1* of the best order was forthcoming from Messrs. Robert Hughes, J. Stephens 1.,1. Bowen Joan Roberts, John Lewis, An- drew Bell, and Tom Griffiths. Mr. Alf Thomas s drollities were convulsing, and hIS sly references to the colonel were uotthf tf e?,j0y~ by th- gallant gentleman him- self. Mr. Tom Jones was drawn upon to good purpose, and he, with Mr. Syd Ed- wards, evoked no end of fun. Mr W. H. Jones as well—it needs not to say in what manner he contributed. A 'cello" solo was piaved by Mr. F. Hutton, and capable as- sistance at the piano was afforded by Messrs Horace Samue1 and Geo. Lewis. Mr. F. Eden proposed a vote of thanks to ilr. J. R. Davies for filling the chair ifter Sir John had left. nnd Mr. Davies, in reply, hoped that evening's gathering would have good results and en courage them to constant fidelity to the cause, and in placing their guest in Parlia- ment as Swansea s representa-tive. (Cheers ) he sincerely trusted that Colonel Wrigh* would again figh:. their battle. (Hear, hear.) More cheers—"For he's a joIJv good fel- low" ?bcers again, and the proceedings ended.
