He consulted with Mr Davies, the president of the Aberdare Liberal Associa- tion, n order that committee meetings might be nailed Concurrently on each side of the hill. He **as sorry it had eoma to this. They were losing a *ery faithful member in Mr James. He (Mr "3#snes) hail been their representative for the last 9^ght years. He was sure he had given entire Satisfaction in his votes at ail tunes, (Hear, 'iear.) He was a very faithful and attentive Imemher, than whom ha believed no member l-'f the House was more attentive to his duties. tie believed, however, they had no alternative but to accept his resignation, as he was going to give Vip his parliamentary duties. He (the chairman) had been speaking to Mr James more than once tjpon this matter, and he (Mr James) felt very much his position because or his family i<fH'Ction •ind troubles. It was, he thought, quite useless '»or them to try and get him to withdraw the 'resignation. It was a matter they would have to lace, and they would have to look out tor a proper man to represent them. As he had indicated, he had already conversed with Mr •levies, at Aberdare, where a committee Vas also called for that uight. To further mutual co-operation, it was understood that a joint com- mittee would be c»'ied._ Mr James had no inten- tion of going to Parliament any inure, but he I, "Would not apply f°r the Chiltern Hundreds until ftbey bad selected their candidate. Mr RBTS DAVIEB said it waa with profound ■astonishment thev had received such intelligence that evening. They were wholly unprepared fi r I ;1t. They could fully endorse the sentiments of their respected chairman as to the past actions of their juuior member. Certainly his votes had been quite up to theexpectatiouof the constituency, and whoever would te their future member, it "^vould be difficult for him to be so faithful in the discharge of his duties. Mr LLOYD, Penydarren, having been appointed "Sec, pro teni. in place of the late ilev Rees Evans, the letter of Mr James was further discussed. It 'Was eventually agree to call a joint committee on -F riday evening at Nazareth, Aberdare. The Rev 1). C. Jones was then appointed secretary of the Merthyr committee.
