ELECTION ITEMS. We stated in our last issue that the Ron G. S. Douglas Pennant had not contributed a penny towards the University College of Wales. We arc now informed by Mr J. Henry Thomas, of this town, that during the period he (Mr Thomas) was local secretary of the movement he received from Mr Pennant the sum of £ 25 towards that institution. Owing to the disgraceful attacks which have been made upon Mr Watkin Williams at Bethesda, and on Mr Pennant at Ebenezer, Major Clayton, the Chief Constable, has determined to keep a vigilant watch with a view of bringing the rioters to justice. We are informed that one man has been arrested and several others summoned, and their cases will be heard on Saturday at Carnarvon. Messrs Mundella and Waddy, the sitting mem- bers for Sheffield, attempted to hold a meeting in Paradise-square on Saturday afternoon, but the supporters of Mr Wortley erected rival platforms, and gave rival speeches. The consequence was so great an uproar that the members failed to obtain a hearing, but a resolution in their favour was declared by the chairman to have been car- ried by a majority of two to one. It is calcu- lated that there were from 12,000 to 16,000 persons present. Lord R. Grosvenor, the Liberal member for Flintshire county, has issued his address. He says he is opposed to the foreign policy of the Govern- ment, and that he is not less jealous of the honour of the country than the Conservatives pretend to be. He thinks that the result of the financial measures of the Government is one which will hardly commend itself to the interests of the work- ing or any other class in the country. He will support such measures as the assimilation of the county to the borough franchise, reforms in the land laws and licensing, expansion of local self- government. The Denbighshire Congregationalists on Friday held a series of conferences at Wrexham. The Rev H. Hughes, of Cefn Mawr, presided, and amongst the resolutions passed was the following, on the motion of Mr Charles Rocke, seconded by Mr Wilson Edwards, J.P.:—" That the delegates representing the churches of this association record their emphatic condemnation of the foreign policy of the present Government. They are of opinion that it has been as feeble as it has been fussy and as wicked as it has been cowardly. Major Cornwallis West, the Liberal candidate for West Cheshire, addressed a meeting of tenant farmers in Birkenkead on Tuesday, and was most cordially received. Later in the day he spoke at Chester, and was again enthusiastically welcomed. Meetings have been held throughout the division, and great confidence is felt by the party.
