REPRESENTATION OF EAST CARMARTHENSHIRE. MEETING OF LIBERALS AT AMMANFORD. A meeting of Liberals, connected with the Eastern Division of Carmarthenshire, was held at the Ivorites'-hall, Ammanford, on Wednesday afternoon, for the purpose of forming the new association for the division. The hall was well filled, and the proceedings commenced by the election of Dr. Howell Rees, Cwmamman, to the chair. Messrs D. Pugh, Lewis Morris, and J. Lloyd Morgan, who had accepted an invitation to be present, were received with applause on entering the room. Mr W. THOMAS, Llanelly, moved— That this inaugural meeting of the East Carmarthen- shire Liberal Association declares its continued confidence in the Right Hon. W. E. Gladstone and his colleagues, and desires to thank them for the bene- ficial measures passed durmg theIr term of office, and for their efforts on behalf of higher education in Wales; and believes and trusts that they will be triumphantly returned to power as a. result of the next general election. Mr T. POWELL, Carregcennin, seconded. Mr D. PUGH, Manoravon, who was received with enthusiastic applause, supported the motion, and in doing so said he had long had a great affection for Mr Gladstone. (Applause.) He believed that disestablishment and disendow- ment lay at the heart of all of them, and he was prepared to heartily support that measure. (Cheers.) The enfranchisement of leaseholds was another much-needed reform, and he thought Mr Broadhurst's proposals were most just and fair. (Applause.) The process of conveyancing land should be simplified. A new system of county government, so as to secure the direct represen- tation of the ratepayers, was very generally needed, and the queston of providing better dwellings for the working classes must be dealt with shortly. (Cheers.) Mr LEWIS MORRIS, M.A., who was very cordially received, next addressed the meeting, and, in doing so, declared himself in favour of charging the cost of elections upon the rates; county government the simplification of the land laws, so as to make the transfer of land easy and to remove the dead hand in leases. He favoured Mr Jesse Collings's bill to provide allotpients and when the working man had his house and his bit of land he certainly ought to have the power of protecting himself against that great enemy of drink by some system of local option. The disestablishment of the Church in Wales was imperative, and the question should not be mixed up with disestablishment in England, or that would have the effect of greatly delaying it. He was in favour of the Burials Bill now before the House. (Cheers.) As to the Welsh Interme- diate Bill he was never in love with it, and he was glad it was dead. He was not sure that it was really alive. He believed it was still-born, and unless it had been materially altered it could not have lived. (Laughter and applause.) He might tell them now that he had himself struck out the obnoxious clauses from the draft of the bill, but when introduced they all appeared again. They might ask how it was possible that such a bill should be introduced for Wales, and he would tell them. It was because the Welsh members, good and estimable as they were in- dividually, were not alive to the wants of Wales. They had no common action amongst themselves and their leader. He advised that association to select a candidate who, when elected, would help to form a national party for Wales in Parliament—a party like that for Scotland, which got what it wanted, while Wales couid get nothing. (Cheers.) As to himself per- sonally, he was not very much in the political field. There was a time when he was very, anxjous to get into Parliament; but he believed that time was now passed. He had had what he desired in- another way; but if it could.be shown that he could serve his native country by going into Parliament, he" might consent to stand for some constituency. (Cheers.) Mr J. LLOYD MORGAN, barrister, next spoke. He proceeded at some length to deal with various political questions of the day, and was very much applauded throughout the whole of his speech. The resolution was carried with applause, and after a few questions had been put to the other gentlemen who spoke, the proceedings terminated, .S & f
