UNITED KINGDOM ALLIANCE MEETING AT CARDIFF, On Monday evening a. meeting of the Cardiff Branch of the United Kingdom Alliance Associa- tion was hold in the Wood-street Chapel, Cardiff.— Mr. Alfred Thomas, M.P., presided, and was sup- ported by MR. E. BC-avan (secretary of the associa- tion), Mr. W. Sanders, and many local ministers. —The Secretary having stated that ho had received letters of apology for non-attendance from Messrs. J. Cory, Lewis Williams, and R. Bird, and the Revs. G. Havgreaves and J. Williamson, Mr. Alfred Thomas addressed the meeting, and said that it always gave him the greatest pleasure to attend meetings in Wood-street Chapel, a place so well connected with movements tor the welfare of tha people. He said that he HAD attended banquets on many occasions in Cardiff where he had been the only teetotaller present, and not long ago no provision was ever made for teetotallers. But a.t the present time not a banquet, from the Lord Mayor's downwards, was held without preparations being made for abstainers, a class which numbered one-fifth of the population. After a few more remarks, a resolution, which deplored the existence of the liquor traffic and earnestly called ou statesmen to combine for the purpose of prohibiting such a. ruinous traffic was proposed, aijd, ou being put to the meeting, WAS unanimously carried. A second resolution, calling upon the Government to introduce a measure which would enable persons to exclude the liquor traffic in their respective parishes, thus reducing the national expenditure in intoxicants, and securing an effec- tivo diminution of intemperance, and largely in- creasing the home trade throughout the country, was proposed by Mr. W. Sanders.—Mr. J. H. Raper, of London, in seconding the resolution, said that in dealing ,with the liquor traffic they had really only one line of policy to adopt, and that was prohibition. They had already local magisterial option, but what they wanted was local popular option. Let the magis- trates keep all the power they had, but let the public have the right to say whether a public- house should be established near their own houses. Tne magistrates had this power, and it was never known that tha magistrates allowed a public- house to come near their residences. (Laughter.) —The resolution, on being put to tho meeting, was unanimously carried, and a vote of thanks to the chairman concluded the proceedings.
