CHEPSTOW FARMERS' ASSOCIATION THE ANNUAL DINNER. SPEECH BY COLONEL MORGAN, M.P. The annual ploughing match and dinner in con- nection with the Chepstow Farmers' Associa.t ion were held on Tuesday. Colonel the Hon. F. C Morgan, M.P., who is the president for the year, received a most hearty reception on presenting himself amongst his constituents. The annual dinner was held in the evening at the George Hotel. Colonel Morgan, M.P., took the chair as president, and was supported by Mr. Henry Clay, Major Lowe, Dr. Lawrence, Mr. G. Dewdney, Mr. Fislie, Mr. Francis. Mr. Talbot, Dr. E. P. King, Mr. Fothergill Evans, Mr. Lindon, Mr. U, Rymer, Mr. J. Rymer, and others. The loyal and patriotic toasts having been given, Dr. King submitted "Tlit Health of the Members for the County and the Boroughs." He could speak personally for both the members for the county, but he did not know the member for the boroughs. Colonei Morgan and Mr. Rolls had both endeared themselves to the electors, and he hoped they would be again re- turned to Parliament. (Hear, hear.) Colonel MORGAN, who was received with loud cheering, said that might be the last time—("No, no "}—that he would be able to stand before then in the proud position of their representative it Parliament. (Renewed cries of No, no.") Well it depended entirely upon themselves. He was glad that politics were put on one side at then meetings, for, what with all the politics whici were being talked now, no one more hated fix name of politics than himself. But he imasjinet that he would have to net, in some very different manner to what he had during the past eleven years before they would turn him out of his posi- tion. (Loud cheers.) The gallant Colonel after wards gave "Success to the Chepstow Farmers' Club," which was coupled with the names of Mr Parsons and Mr. Rymer, who responded. Dr. LA. w liENCE gave" The Health of the Presi- dent (Colonel Morgan; The fiON, MEMBER, who was received with much cheering, said he was very happy to give up his time and <?o amongst the farmers at this period of the year. He was sure that these associations contributed to the welfare of the tcnan; and not only to them, but also to the agricultural labourers. Ho did not believe that the schemes which had been propounded for dividing t.he land would benefit any farmer in the room, but would, or. the other hand, add most grievously to tiie heavy burden of local taxa- tion with which they were already oppressed 'Hear, hear.) It was all very well for gentlemen in towns to come amongst them and tell them what was best, but he fancied if landlords could sell their land and put the money in stocks thev would see a much better return. But he liked t( see landlords sticking to their county and sticking to their tenants, and then the tenants sticking tc their labourers. He knew that agriculture waf very much depressed. It could not be other- wise with wheat and bailey and oats at the low prices they were. But still the farmers were not so much disposed to grumble as some of the town gentlemen were ready to grumble for them. (Hear, hear.) Then as to the position of the agri- cultural labourer, whom Mr. Chamberlain had described in language winch they could not understand. How could such a description be true when they had an instance that day of a labourer who baa been on the same farm 40 years and six months ? (Hear, hear.) But when small proprietors got their three acres they would have to work with it harder than any labourer had to work or they would very soon find themselves in the hands of the money lenders. (Hear, hear.) Some other toasts were also given.
