THE LANDLORD SCREW IN CARNARVONSHIRE. Cringing under the fear of defeat the majority of the landlords of this county ;y are putting on every effort to force their tenants to vote in fanour of Mr Pennant. We do not for a moment suppose that that gentleman specially directs that any unjust compulsion should be used; but the way in which his adulators exceed the desired use of their influence in the Tory behalf is likely not only to bring about a well-merited defeat but to expose these respectable law- breakers to the charge of a gross violation of justice. Mr Watkin Williams has carried the whole county by surprise, and he has spoken with such force to vast Audiences that the Tory attempts at oratory have been deluged; the people have been taught to grasp the questions at issue, and to pass their verdict upon the doings of a govern- ment which has set for itself a motto of glory to St. Jingo, on earth war, and ill-will towards men. The sons of Arfon have sufficient intelligence and sympathy to look over the minor considerations of doing a favour to the landlords," and we imagine the historic spirit of freedom and peace which has always teen a characteristic of our hills and vales will instil into them a courage to denounce emphatically the minis- try which has sowed the seeds of/destruction and injustice, and which is guilty of neglect at home and wrongs abroad. The represen- tation of this county had been Conservative for generations prior to 1868, when Mr Jones-Parry attacked the stronghold and carried the seat with a majority of 168. The Tory screw has been in operation since, and Mr Pennant's return in 1874 was undeniably owing to its tyrannical influence. The legal element, which is retained entirely on the side of wealthy Conservatism, goes hand in hand with the landed interest, and this com- bined power is brought to bear heavily on the ordinary tenant voter. As it was the case in the last election these zealous de- votes of the House of Penrhyn go about the country and warn tenants and workmen they must not vote contrary to their land- lords and employers. This is gross intimi- dation in itself, but they do not let matters stop at that point; they tell the innocent farmer that owing toLordPenrhyn's influence in London he can find out how any elector will vote. That is how Mr Pennant was elected in 1874, and that is the way in which he will secure a number of votes at the present election. And still Mr Pennant has the coolness to come forward and address himself to the free and indepen- dent electors of Carnarvonshire," knowing they are not free, and that the most shame- ful tyranny is brought to bear upon them It is said there are scores of farmers in Lleyn who are watched daily by the agents of their landlords, and told that they must not be misled by the Liberals as to the Ballot, that their votes can be found out and that they will be doomed if they do not vote for the Tory candidate. Now it would behove the other side to enquire into these matters, not only to extricate the innocent farmers r who are thoroughly Liberal at heart from the entanglements of these unprincipled flunkeys, but also to bring their scandalous misdeeds to the light of justice. There is not talent enough on the staff of workers to expound and advocate the principles of Toryism, and in the absence of reasoning this screw" is brought into operation. We observe that Mr H. J. Ellis Nanney has in his zeal for the success of Mr Pennant invited his tenantry to Gwynfryn, where Mr Douglas Pennant will be there to address them. This is another form of one of the oppressive wrongs which the Ballot Act was designed to remove, and we are not a little surprised that a man who holds such a high position in the administration of justice in the county should take a step which is in direct contravention to the spirit of electoral I justice. He would scarcely accord a similar favour to Mr Watkin Williams, even if that gentleman desired it, but he must imagine his tenantry are a lot of geese if he believes they can swallow the political small- talk which Mr Pennant will inflict upon them. For a man in Mr Nanney's position it would have been more becoming, and more gratifying to the farmers if he exer- cised his influence to extend their under- standing, and to teach them to think for themselves, and decide for themselves upon the principles of the two men put forward at this election. The electors, however, will not, altogether, be so easily hoodwinked as in 1874, and it is more than probable that Mr Watkin Williams will defeat all these dodges. The Tories are by no means san- guine of success, and this may account for their adopting courses which are neither just nor generous. The Hon. George Pennant must feel acutely from the very unfavourable com- parison he makes with his opponent, for he has to face a man of strong and deep rooted convictions, and who has the full courage of his convictions; he has to face a man who can enter thoroughly into the details on which the whole political fabric is based, whereas Mr Pennant cannot be accused of being an orator, and has not, that we are aware, displayed anything which would indicate that he has ever troubled himself much about politics. He could not attempt to take up any of the numerous subjects on which Mr Watkin Williams has spoken, and he has himself said very little, right or wrong, which would be worth taking up in argu- ment. In Parliament he has been a kind of Conservative dummy who could be reckoned upon to vote whenever required, and the time has come when the electors of Car- narvonshire shall decide whether their voice in the councils of the nation shall be mis- represented by a political nonentity who knows not the sentiments of his constituents nor is bold enough to form any for himself. Did it ever occur to the electors of this im- portant county that their voice was given in approval of the continuation of flogging in the army, against the Burials Bill of Mr Osborne Morgan, in support of the warlike policy of the Government in the East, and in justification of the wars in Afghanistan and in Zululand ? Is the voice of the people of Carnarvonshire favourable to a Government which would encourage slavery, and which would deny to Englishmen their Liberties ? Would the quarrymen of Bethesda and Llanberis conscientiously vote against the county franchise ? Most assuredly not, and with the aid of fearless outspoken men it is certain the county will suffer no longer that its true sentiments shall be misrepresented, notwithstanding the lying perversions of some rabid Conservatives, who go about the country to preach the most senseless trash in the interests-or rather to the detriment of the interests-of the Con servative candidate.
THE BALLOT-IS IT SECRET? We propose to demonstrate in this article that it is utterly impossible for the keenest Tory agent to discover, either at the booth or at the reckoning of the ballot papers for what candidate any elector had recorded his vote. It is as impossible to do so as it would be to pick up a grain of sand after having mixed it undiscriminately with a heap of sand. The secret is known to the voter alone, and is for ever concealed from every other person and no man can enter into that secret if the voter will only keep his own counsel. To prove our assertions we will draw our readers' attention to the follow- ing simple explanation of the Ballot Act. Indeed, if the Act had not been so extraor- dinarily simple it is probable that voters would not have been so ready to believe the threats of Tory canvassers that they would be able to ascertain how the electors had disposed of their votes. The polling booth is divided into two distinct compartments. At one end of the booth, with a table before him, on which is placed the locked ballot box sits the presiding officer, and on either hand of him are seated the agents of the respec- tive candidates. At the other end of the polling booth are several compartments, each containing a small table or desk, with a pencil for the use of the voter to mark the ballot paper. When a voter enters the booth he will receive from the presiding officer a ballot paper, on which is printed the names of the candidates. We will select the names of the two gentlemen contesting the county of Carnarvon, in order to illus- trate our meaning; the names of the can- didates are always placed in alphabetical order, thus (The Ballot Paper when not filled.) Pennant, Hon. G. S. D. I 1 Williams, Watkin .1 f F Having received the ballot paper—which will be in the above form-the voter will proceed to one of the private compartments, # and with no human eye looking upon him, will put a cross (X) opposite the name of Mr Watkin Williams, the Liberal candidate. When the voter has done this, the paper will appear thus I Pennant, Hon. G. S. D. I Williams, Watkin X The voter having done this he must fold up the paper, taking care to leave the official j mark visible. The official mari is simply a stamp mark put on by the presiding officer, and which is affixed to every ballot paper alike. Its only object is like the stamp mark on letters, that the officer may know it is the paper which he has given out, so that the voter shall not be able to pat in a wrong paper. Having shown that part of the paper with the official mark on, the voter puts it into the ballot box, ichieh is- locked, and the key in the possession of the presiding officer. The ballot box is not to be opened on any consideration. We warn the voters against doing any more than placing the X against the name of Mr Watkin Wil- limns. Let no voter scratch our Mr Pennant's name or in any way interfere with it. We will now proceed to show how impos- sible it is to find out how a voter has voted: Hugh Humphreys, we will supposeT had recorded his vote for Mr Watkin Williams by putting his X against Mr Williams's name but as there will be thousands of papers similarly marked with a X for Mr Williams, and a few, no doubt, for Mr Pennant, and as there is nothing whatever to show which amongst all the papers in the box was marked by Hugh Humphreys, it will be impossible to discover for whom Hugh Humphreys had voted. The ballot paper given to the voter by the presiding officer has been torn out of a book, leaving a counterfoil behind. On this counterfoil the number of the voter on the register is marked by the presiding officer, and the register is also ticked, show- ing that the voter had voted, so that no one again at that election could vote in his name. At the close of the poll the book containing the counterfoils is carefully packed up into a parcel and sealed with the seal of the presiding officer and the seals of the candidates' agents; and the par- cel is not upon any pretext whatever to be opened again. The marked copy of the register is also sealed up in a similar way. The ballot-box is also sealed up with the seals of the presiding officer and the agents to the candidates and the whole conveyed by the presiding officer, without delay, to the returning officer, who, in this county, is the High Sheriff. Before opening the boxes they are carefully examined by the candidates' agents to see that none of the seals have been broken. The boxes are then opened and all the papers, from all parts of the county, are mixed indiscrimin- ately in a heap, and the counting begins. We will take up a ballot paper from the heap. Against the name of Mr Pennant there is no mark, but there is a X against Mr Williams' name. The vote has been given for Mr Williams, but who gave it ? There is nothing on the paper to show who made the mark. Here is a fine opportunity for our Tory friends to prove that the Ballot is not absolutely secret. We invite them to try the experiment.. After the ballot papers have been all counted, and the successful candidate known, all the papers are again sealed upjin a bundle, and sent by the returning Jofficer to the Clerk of the Crown in Chancery. This official is on no account to break the seals, or allow any of the parcels to go out of his custody, ex- cept under an order of the House of Com- mons, or one of the judges of the higher courts, and at the end of twelve months they are destroyed. We have, we believe, proved enough to show that it is barefaced impertinence to attempt to delude people into a belief that the Ballot is not perfectly safe. No one but the Omniscient and the voter know how the vote has been given. When an agent or canvasser asserts that it is possible to discover how a voter has voted, let the electors only ask what means he would adopt to discover the votes, and they will see that these pretenders are utterly ignorant of the whole Ballot process, or else utterly mendacious.
THE ELECTIONS- Battle along the whole line may be said to describe correctly the political outlook from John o' Groat's to Land's End. What Lord Granville, speaking of the Premier's manifesto, designates the beat o £ the big drum has called forces into action. which Lord Beaconsfield could scarcely have estimated at their relative strengh at the time he penned his letter to Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, or he certainly would have written with more careful consideration for facts and less affection for fancies. It cannot be denied that Lord Beaconsfield posing as the Saviour of society so far as Ireland is con- cerned, and the Preserver of Peace- abroad and Prosperity at home, has been a little too much for the intelligence of his own party. On the other hand, the longer that this, precious. piece of bunkum has been under criticism the stronger has grown the resentment of even moderate-minded Liber- als. Every ill-considered alliteration which finished the key-note to the subsequent addresses of his followers was calculated to increase the asperities of formidable oppon- ents, who, little pleased with some of the vagaries of, their party, might without this- audacious attempt to impose upon their credulity, have been disposed to look upon the Election as the mere struggle of Party for Place and Power, unworthy of very strong personal activity. This was the cue of the London Press, to which, with all the evidence of strong susceptibilities roused in the country, with singular fatuity it has ad- hered. The Times, Telegraph, Standard, and such handicapped journals as the Saturday Review present a pitiable spectacle amidst the great conflict which will not cease until the last poll has been taken. It is not too much to say that these reputed leaders of opinion have stultified their position, and that the prestige of the London Press has sacrificed itself without any sufficient motive. The speeches of Gladstone and Bright and the sober, statesmanlike utterances of Lords Hartington and Granville have been alike dismissed as a waste of words, and day after day we have been told that the torrent of long pent-up feeling making its way with an irresistible force through the country is a mere idle display of forensic eloquence, no more calculated to affect the minds of sen- sible people than the strongest reason and logic of Parliamentary oratory the division- list which closes a debate. We are told that everything is a foregone conclusion, that the Government must retain its majority, and that it is almost a piece of impertinence on the part of the constituencies to attempt to modify public opinion or question the lead- ings of such men of light. Such effrontery is equivalent to declaring that our Parlia- ment makers are incapable of forming an opinion for themselves, and are content to act at the Ballot-Box as well as to think Tele- graph or Times. It is not too much to say that from the commencement of the cam- paign such vacillating politicians as Mr Walter of the Times and the Jews of Peter- borough Court have laboured hard to blind the eyes of the electors to the real issues at stake, the simple question to be decided in a few days: Shall the Government of this vast Empire be entrusted for another seven years to the clever political adventurer at the head of affairs, or pass into the hands of men whose character and antecedents are the best answer to the ridiculous changes of conspiring to decompose colonial policy and disintegrate the Empire. It is reassuring, however, to find that the blarney of such newspaper-mongers has not deterred new men of remarkable promise from coming to the front. County seats which have been deemed impregnable, one after the other, are challenged, and even in such a hotbed of Conservatism and snobbery as County Middlesex, a poll is demanded, and a young Achilles, in the shape of Mr Gladstone's fourth son, is found to do battle against the bombasts of Lord George Hamilton, who imputes audacity to the son of the Ex- premier for daring to resent the melo- dramatic pose of a fifth-rate politician. Young Gladstone's simple charge that whereas the Tories came into power with a well-filled Exchequer of some six millions sterling and now leave it with a deficit of some eight millions, they are no longer qualified to control the public purse, is treated with lofty disdain, and against this we are told to be comforted in the thoughts that although domestic legislation has necessarily been sacrificed for the last six years, we have had the glory of such Quixotic enterprises as the war-laurels gathered in ZuJuland and Afghanistan. But for the little bill which, sooner or later, is insepar- able "from such transactions, the "Peace with Honour legend of Lord Beacons- field might pass muster; but, like the glitter of Turnerelli's wreath, which, with grim humour, our new saviour of society would not wear, the glory of these little wars fade out in the unromantic remembrance that the Income Tax from 1874 to 1880 has grown from 3d to 5d,and must be doubled with the next budget unless the bran-new idea to pay old debts out of borrowed capital comes to be regarded as the perfection of latter-day financial wisdom. Unlike our London con- temporaries, we commend to our readers, as far as time and opportunity permit, a survey of the political situation, which can only be obtained by a careful scrutiny of the con- flicting addresses put forth from both sides of the camp. Above all, we commend to the consideration of every loyal and true citizen the weighty words of a great speaker thoroughly impressed with the magnitude of the interest at stake, and keenly sensible of the dignity and importance of electoral rights. Let me tell you," he says, every man of you, that every vote weighs seriously in the scale. You see some fine building raised from its foundation to the roof; but. every brick and every stone is important in that building; and every vote of every man is important in the grand fabric of national freedom which we hope to create and per" manently sustain." This is very different teaching from that we received from indoloat Pall Mall lawyers and idle habituers of luxurious clubs. The strong sentiment ap- peals to the heart of the- manhood of this country and, whatever be the result of the elections, we trust the returns will not show as in 187,4 a deplorable growth of political apathy and indifferencel which can only be interpreted as sure signs of national decay.
ELECTION NOTES. The-polling for the County of Caraarvon is fixed for Tuesday, April 6th, for the Den- bigh Boroughs on. Tuesday, April 5th, and for the Flint Boroughs on Saturday, April 3rd. The polling; for Midlothian, is fixed for the 5th April. The popular voice in the county of Car- narvon is declared with no uncertain sound against the policy which has wrought such evils over thi& country during the past six years, and if the universal feeling of the people is an indication of how, the election will turn, Mr Watkin Williams will be re- turned with a large majoriby. The hon. gentleman has- everywheze been most enthusiastically received. Sinc-e his arrival in the county-, some tan days ago, he has held meetings in. every populous district, and his audiences, have been large and unanimous,. The three- meetings- on Friday last in Llanberis, district were con- sidered to have been the greatest gatherings ever known in that locality, but the monster gathering at the Carnarvon Pavilion on Monday may be looked upon as. the chief feature in the contest. The audience was immense, and Mr W. Williams delivered one of his finest speeches* He fully expounded the questions upon which the election turns, and laid stress upon the fact that the contest is not a personal one. If the electors are bold enough to wipe off the cob-webs which have been spun around them by Penrhyn spiders, and to vote upon the principles at issue according to their con- sciences, the Liberals have nothing to fear. Mr Pennant is said to have exceeded himself in his speeches. In print they look very like those of the Dean of Bangor, but with less go." We would very mttch to know whether the very rev. had anything to do with Mr Pennant's C°K version to support the Sunday Closing( Bill. It does seem strange that Mr who formerly spoke against this mea^ should now speak in its favour. ♦ In striking contrast with the ovations corded to Mr Watkin Williams is the Co" manner in which Mr Douglas Pennant 0- received wherever he turns. At Llandu the other evening. he held a meeting to ae liver a set exposition of his views to a fe Conservatives who were intermixed with J greater number of Liberals. The gallant gentleman had delivered just the- same h drum speech as he has aired everywhe else, and the usual votes of confidence etØ proposed and seconded. This being done gentleman put up an amendment that JYY Watkin Williams was a more fit and pro person to represent this county in par]jJ ment! There were a number of secon and the amendment was carried by a majority which resulted in the collapse the Conservatives. At Pwllheli on \V^' nesday, Mr Pennant was similarly and the mob entirely prevented Mr P^nna^ Mr Nanney, and others, from speaking, v? do not approve of these tactics, as it is oiw right and fair both sides should be heay and there is sufficient mortification for Pennant in the fact that he cannot cope his opponent without. thus stifHíng JY speech. The Holywell Observer made a stupid mistake the other day in trying to puffof Mr Scott Bankes. Our readers in Holt well may perhaps be aware that thisfamo^ organ, which professes to be neutral jØ politics, in order to catch fish on both si<H of the stream, has always backed up JJOP Richard Grosvenor, M.P., who is a thoroug Liberal, whilst it has been equally veheraeIJ in denouncing Mr John Roberts, who iSj Liberal of just the same stamp, as Lo*r Richard. Inasmuch as the printer of tbiØ paper is a kind of factotum over Capt. Pennant's estate it would hardly be reasov able to expect this gentleman would scratch the back of Mr Rot erfcS; but he shows the most gross inconsistency in heaping praiso on Lord Grosvenor,—for which that noble' man would scarcely thank him. The otbet day this worthy mustered up the coura$ to tell those who see the paper that Lo* Richard Grosvenor might congratulatØ himself that he is a Grosvenor, or he wott^ have to measure swords with Mr J. Scot" Bankes, who would, under other circuo,, stances, have come out as a Couservati-vo. Now, as a matter of fact, Mr Scott Bank0? has no inclination whatever for politic* life, and even if he had he is a thorouglJ going Liberal. We are informed he # very indignant at the gross mLs-represe tation of this keen Observer, and, indeed, it is strange that a man so professedly Wi versed in the secrets of his party sho^ make such a mistake. The chief point of interestin the political campaign will be in Midlothian, where 3^ Gladstone is making progress in his caJ*' didature against the son of bold 3^ cleuch." He is going forth conquering a^ to conquer. Englishmen admire Mr FIIO stone with sufficient ardour., but it takes* Celtic race with fiery blood, to give suitable expression to the love which is felt toward him. Therefore, a more- happy arrange ment could hardly have been made tfr0 sending of Mr Gladstone to contest lbthian. Letting alone the- success whi^ will attend Mr Gladstone's candidature that part of the world, :it will be a centril spot for Liberals to look t.¡) for comfort & the struggle when it proves tryin& and will be a. rallying p.oint around whic political soldiers can gather, and prepo" themselvealor the congests that an befotØ them. +. L_ Public b-uainess is aveiy where tharust asid" to make-way for those who are. bidding.fr* the votes-of the people to be sent up to tbØ new Parliament. In every part of tbØ United. Kingdom the struggle progress^ favourably for the Liberal cause, and there is hope-that not only will the Tory majpritf be neutralized but. that a l iberal Govern' ment, will be the result. In Wales the Liberals are strong enough, to hold< theif own, and they will assuredly carry some Of the eight Tory seats, which, they have at' tacked. Never, perhaps, since the gre*^ Reform conteatr—1831—was any politic agitation entered into with more eathusiasa and vigour.
