The Dywysogaeth says that if the bill for the prohibition of canvassing is passed, Mr Wat- kin Williams' seat will be in danger at the next election. ) A Tory print says :—" The other day, 320 ] Radical lambs were conveyed from Newtown to Welshpool to kick up an election row, and they were very successful." The Conservatives of Cardiff, indignant at the result of the election, have decided to un- seat Mr Read, the Liberal member, if they can prove charges of bribery. They are evidently doomed to disappointment. Llais y W7ad is, after all, a truthful print, because it said the other day, "It is unnecessary to conceal the fact that the Tories in Carnarvon- shire have had a thrashing which will not be for- gotten in many respects." Bemoaning the fate of the Conservativc candidate for the representation of Carnarvonshire, a writer in a Tory print says :-L Mr Pennant's great fault is—that his father is one of the peers of the realm. Had he been brought up from the ditch, and became the owner of quarries and other property, he would have been a great man in the eyes of men who are enthralled by ignorance and prejudice." The same writer says :—" Mr Pennant is a Welshman born and bred in Llandegai; and those who have heard speak say that he has a proper Welsh pronunciation." This is really a wonderful, but questionable, discovery." A Voice from Bangor stated that the Conservatives of Anglesey intend "tucking up their sleeve," as they have resolved to change Mr Richard Davies' present majority into a minority in the next contest. In the meantime, says this ineffective "Noice,"they will not remain idle, but will bring forward a candidate whose impor- tance will justify the electors of Anglesey in turn- ing the Liberal members into a pasture where, for a season, they will smooth their political hair On the polling day in Anglesey, a Con- servative proceeded in a Tory jolting-car to vote for Captain Pritchard- Rayner, and thus fulfil his promise honourably. There were other voters in the vehicle, and the conversation during the journey was upon the merits and demerits of the respective candidates. T1 is Conservative, how- ever, having spoken in respectful terms about Mr Richard Davies, the Liberal candidate, was accused by his fellow-passengers of being a "traitor." The accused went to the polling booth, and did his duty. Returning towards the car, he was surprised to hear the driver say I brought you here. but after what I heard, the devil must take yoa home." And the poor Conservative was left behind! Two jolly Tories in Carnarvon were over- sanguine of the return of Mr Douglas Pennant. As they were brothers they expressed their feelings to each other rather freely, and the result was they decided upon signalising the "defeat" of Mr Watkin Williams by making a grand pyrotecnical display, the arrangements being left in the hands of the younger brother. The elder brother, how- ever, knew how to tie a flag to a pole, and he therefore ordered a varied selection of banners to be conveyed to his business establishment in the most central part of the town. The result of the poll was made, and—great was the disappoint- ment of these Tory brothers. Fearing the rockets and blue lights will become damp in the shed wheretheyare now kept, these admirers of gun- powder and glory policy have suggested the ad- visability of holding a Conservative meeting for the purpose of "cheering up" Mr Douglas Pen- nant, and winding up the proceedings with a dis- play of fireworks. This is not a bad idea of Brothers Jones after all.
