Birthday Gift from Wales STIRRING DEMONSTRATION. A Hungerless Land. "UUR MAJORITY IS SECURE." The visit of Mr Lloyd Qeorge to Lfendrtndod evoked the most cordial enthusiasm, not only for the Chancellor himself, but for the Lib^al cause, which is being championed by his fn«nd, Sir Francis Edwards. A great crowd assemtd^ from various parts of the county, filling o 1- nary trains, and making necessary the em- ployment of more than one I special train. Enthusiasts poured into Ll^nndod eaxfy in the afternoon and crowded round the nul- way station, and gave the Cha^eOor a voci- ferous reception when he arrrved from London at 4 O'clock, accompanied by Sir Frank Edwards, after a triumphal journey J^w^Sh Welsh stations, where the crowds gathered cheering. Radnor Liberals, koen and bravely confident, expre^ed J»Yat visit in view of the activity of landlords and Th^Albert Hall and the Baptist Tabernacle were both crowded out hours before meeting time. Mr Jeffrey Jones presided at the Albert Hall meeting, supported by Alderman E. But- ton Revs. Wynne Evans, Stephen George, William Williams, W. G. Mansfield, Messrs John Stephens, Evan Morgan, J. O. Button (president Young Liberals' League), J. R. Boge, Edward Jenkins, Philip Davies, J. O- Jenkins, and John Parce. Tumultuous enthusiasm greeted the Chancellor's arrival, and For he.is ajolly good fellow was song. Sir Francis Edwards. Sir Francis Edwards, who had with him Lady Edwards, was also received with great enthusi- asm. He read a letter of support from Mr Corrie Carter, chairman of the Quarter Ses- sions, who said that although only a Moderate Liberal he felt bound to do everything to resist attacks upon Free Trade and the Commons management of the national finances. Sir Francis asked for.support of the Government because of their pledges fulfilled, and advised farmers /not to fear a com- bination between Balfour and Blatch- ford, and expect a German airship to alight on Llandrindod Common. (Ap- plause and laughter.) He asked them -to remember that the Government had looked after the interests of agricul fcnre, having given the Agricultural HOldings Act and the Small Holdings Act, and would do more. A very disgraceful story had been circulated byTories that Sir Herbert Lewis would have to leave Harpton Court if the Bud- get were passed. This caused consternation in New Radnor, and the story was sent to Sir H. Lewis. His reply to the Liberal agent was if such a rumour was being spread there was not the slightest ground for it, and Sir Herbert gave his authority to contradict the rumour. (Cheers.) Sir Francis refuted Mr Venables Llewelyn's assertion that the Budget-differentiated between rich men. and said it did not tax any agricul- tural land. Farmers had nothing to fear from the Liberals. He was confident of what the result would be. He was confident Radnorshire Would (Cheers.) Birthday Present A pretty ceremony took place before the Chancellor spoke. Miss Myfartwy Edwards, daughter of Sir Francis, on behalf of LLandrm- jJod Liberals, made him a birthday presentof a diamond scarfpin and gold matchbox. Most enthusiastic cheering greeted Miss Edwards on mating the presentation and wishing the ChancSlor many happy retarns-of his birthday. The Chancellor paid a fine tribute to the Liberal candidate. The Chancellor said Sir Francis had given the best of his life to the service of Radnorshire. If loyal service counted in a constituency, and hard work counted to the value of a hair, then Sir Francis Edwards would not merely be returned, but returned by ■ fk staggering majority. (Great cheers.),
