EPISCOPAL VISIONS. Everybody will rejoice at the progress made by the Bishop of Bangor towards tl.e recovery of his health. But there is s;11 something the matter, apparently, with h:s lordship's eyesight. He fails to see the true inwardness, the actual meaning of "nation- alism." So he told his clergy, assembled in diocesan conference at Dolgelley the other day. Cymric bishops have never been noted for keenness of vision; episcopal optics are frequently subject to that pecul- iar malady known as colour-blindness. 'If the Welsh Church," said Dr Lloyd, 'fails in consulting the best interest of all classes of people on truly Welsh lines, I am free to confess that it is a failure.' We had always thought that the very existence of Noncon- formity was fair'y decisive proof of the rail- ur of the Latin,Anglican,Norman;or Estab- lished Church in Wales. An institution on which the vast majority of the people have turned their backs cannot lationally be called a success. The Bishop said the Church "was worked on truly national lines." But the awkward part of the busi- ness is that the Church itself is not national to begin with. That is the initial difficulty which, in the nature of thingr can never be surmounted. In one respect only is the Church national it is maintained by national funds. To apply to it the epithet nation; 1 in any other connection is a wicked abuse of terms. But Bishop Lloyd does not understand what nationalism means, as re^u-ds mat- ters ecclesiastic. We will tell him in a few plain and simple word°. A church may be said to be national, in the first place, when it is of national origin The Anglican Church in Wales is not of Welsh origin. Our ancestors, from' about the 2nd century J to the 11th or 12th, had their own Celtic Church, which was as Celtic in its origin as any system of Christianity could not be of nation?.] origin at all. The seed came from Asia Minor; not from or "via" Rome, but the plant grew a Celtic plant in the Celtic soil of Ireland and Wales. In the sixth century the Latin Church was carried from Rome to the South of England. For centuries there was a fierce battle between the Latin Church in England and the Celtic Church in Wales. The Latins were held at bay for a long time. At last, the Normans helped them, by means of their castles and their soldiers, to conquer the Celtic Church, and reduce Wales to ecclesiastical servitude. The English Church in Wales dates from, and owes its supremacy to, the Norman castles that disfigure the hills and valleys of our beautiful country. The line of continu- ity! was broken by the Norman bullies. Be- fore their appearance, the Church of Wales was Celtic and national; after their ap- pearance, it was Latin and alien. The Celtic Church, both in Ireland and Wales, was a success. It was fashioned b ythe people in accordance with their own ideas and ideals; it therefore suited their genius, and was in sympathy with their aspirations. The Celtic Church was an intellectual and a moral power thai made itself felt all over the west of Europe. When it was beaten down by N orman; spears, and the Church of the Latins thrust on the people by military methods in substitution for it, then began the period of religious apathy. The Latin Church, not adapted to the Celtic tempera- ment, sank into the mire of indifference, lassitude, and corruption. At length the people deliberately went away from it, abandoned it to its own devices, and set up religious systems of their own. They dis- sented, they non-conformed. The Latin Church was a deadweight, dragging them down to all manner of depravity and bar- barism. Therefore, they shook it away from them, and betook themselves to their own Bethels and Ebenezers and Shilohs. Every chapel in Wales -is a rebuke and a reproach to the Latin Church imposed on the Welsh people, and a, concrete, palpable proof, for all eyes to see, of the failure of that Church in the country. What is the use of talking about working "on national lines" an institution which is anti-national in its inward core, and hopelessly foreign to the temperament of the people? Both in the Bangor and St. Asaph dio- cesan conferences there was some talk, we note with peculiar interest, about the de- sirability of establishing Boards of Patron- age. That is a distinctively Celtic note. It argues a feeling of revolt against episcopal territorial government, a feature of eccles- iastical life absolutely unknown in the an- cient Celtic Church. There were bishops in that Church, it is true; yes, there were bis- hops, hundreds of them. But of real power they possessed rather less than an ordinary curate of our day; they had no territorial control. No official, high or low, had ter- ritorial control over anybody or anything. It was universal home rule then. The Celtic Church was fundamentally democratic. The conception of an official ruling the churches of one-fourth, more or less, of the Princip- ality, drawing the salary of a prime minis- etr, living in a magnificent mansion, and controlling the destinies of a large number of clerics, is essentially a non-Celtic and an anti-Celtic conception. The Bishop of Bangor does not understand Celtic nation- alism. This need cause no wonder, for the office he so worthily fills is a Latin institu- tion right through. And even a bishop is human. Some bishops are very human in- deed. That was the reason, perhaps, why the Celtic Church confined their power with- in such very narrow limits. In that Church the clergy had no special privileges of any sort. They were subject to all the laws that regulated the affairs and customs of the tribes. They were tribesmen first, and clergymen afterwards. There was no com. pulsory tithe to support them. In the Latin Church, the clergy held a thick end of the stick in their own hands. They en- joyed many privileges; enormous powers were vested in them; tyrants over the peo- ple were they, not religious ministers. The Irish priest that wallops the peasants with his shillelagh is a Latinist. We know what the Celtic Church did for Ireland in the early ages, and what the Latin Church did for that unhappy country afterwards. The Bishop of Bangor does not understand Welsh nationalism. The stock-brokers of Berlin do not understand Greek national- ism. How can they ? The Bishop should bear in mind that the people of Wales are Celts, that the Established Church is an Anglican institution, of Roman origin, and thrust on the people of Wales at the point of Norman spears. Let him also remember that the ancient Church of Wales is repre- sented now, not by the Anglican Church, but by Nonconformity. Possibly he will be loth to take our word for it. Very well then; we have no right to complain of that. We refer his lordship to Mr Willis Bund's marvellously interest- ing book, "The Celtic Church of Wales." There he will find a vast amount of informa- tion on the subject. The reading of the vlume will not be a pleasant task for him; still, like bitter physic, it may do him a world of good. And we need not tell him, a Cardi as he is, that Mr Willis Bund is a I Tory, an Englishman, and a Churchman. So we are referring him to one of his own friends, not to any wicked Dlissenter or audacious Liberatiortist. We will also quote for him the dictum of a well-known Anglican cleric, the Rev S. Baring Gould, the novelist and historian. Mr Gould paid a visit to Wales last week, and he told a pressman that "the development of the gen- ius of the Welsh people was arrested by the invasion of the Norman." This may not be true of Welsh literature; but it is only too terribly true of Welsh religion. The St. Asaph clergymen also met in dio- cesan conference last week. The question they chiefly discussed was: how to get more money? Bishop Edwards told them that Disestablishment will never more be heard of; but they are preparing for the worst.
NOTES AND COMMENTS. The Liberals of East Denbighshire hav) gained a stunning victory; they have clearly shown that the Bishop of St Aseph and his brother clerics were labouring un- der a delusion when they said that Dises- tablishment "as dead. The question of re- ligious equality will still occupy the fore- most place in the programme of the Welsh Liberal Party, and the Nonconformists of Wales will not rest until they have gained what their forefathers have been struggling for for generations. The announcement through the public press this week of the fact that a number of Penrhyn men have been refused employ- ment at the quarry has taken the whole country by surprise. It is generally looked upon as a glaring instance of the violation of both the letter and the spirit of the terms of settlement under which the men returned to work. Nothing could have been more precise or definite than the un- derstanding and stipulation that "all the late employes" would be re-engaged. There can be no" only no justification but no excuse for breaking this definite pledge. We have said some, hard things at times of Lord Penrhyn, and have said them because we believed them. But we emphatically refuse to believe that he will either be a party to or for a moment countenance an act which would make the agreement under which his men returned to work just so much waste paper. Lord Penrhyn's hon- our is involved in this matter, and we rest implicit beief in his pledged word that "all the late empoyes" shall be re-engaged, ay, if all the quarry officials in Christendom stood in the way! We are sure all our readers will join with us in extending heartiest sympathy toMajor Ap Hugh Williams in the unfortunate acci- dent which befel him on Saturday iast, and which at one time seriously endangered his life. The accident was i nail probability one which could neither be foreseen nor avoided. At the same time it seems to em- phasise the necessity for exercising every possible precaution in conncolion with such works as the Carnarvon Sea Wall. The ac- cident which ecessitated the amputation of Major Ap Hugh Williams's foot m¡lt have cost him his life—and what happened to him might have happened to anybody. The mention of the place and the circum- stances under which Major Ap Hugh Wil- liams met with his unfortunate accident, brings up the question of the Harbour Trust. The constitution of this body is a remark- able one. Practically self-elected it exer- cises great powers and to an appreciable ex- tent influences the destines of Carnarvon. Now and again the question suggests itself to the burgess mind whether the connec- tion and relation between the Harbour Trust and the Town Council is altogether what it should be. Iti s Gilbert's Mikado, i sit not, that pour- trays the trials and troubles of poor Pooh Bah who holds offices not only different in character, but the duties of which are ab- solutely antagonistic. In one capacity Pooh Bah has to issue orders which in an- other capacity his duty demands he should oppose. The complications incident to such a situation are endless. Is it not possible that we may have Pooh Bahs at Carnar- ? r. For instance, the same gentlemen occupy seats on the Harbour Trust and the Town Council. The interests of these two bodies so far from being always identical, not fre- quently clash. Now when the Carnarvon Pooh Bah sits on the Harbour Trust it is right and proper that he should have inter- ests of the Trust at heart, and when at the Council Board the interests of the Corpora- tion should have the first place. Now when these interests clash what should poor Pooh Bah do? When he sits, say, at the Coun- cil Board, is it the Corporation side of his conscience or the Trust side of his interests which sway him?, This opens up an inter- esting field of enquiry to which the rate- esting field of enquiry to which the rate- payers might with benefit pay some atten- tion. Some facts and figures which are begin- ning to leak out from the Corporation offices point to the fact that the town has bene- fited immensely by the change which took place in the Mnuicipal Government of the town some three or four years ago. We were then in a financial muddle which would have disgraced any town in the country. It was a Herculean task, first of all to get at the root of the evil, then to get rid of it. The "Observer and Express" did its share of the first; the Reform majority on the Coun- cil have done their share of the second. But why not make the facts public ?Why not give the Ratepayers the figures in a rrell digested and easily understood form, so that he who runs may read of the splendid work which has been done in the Council duriny the past few years? ° I f The November elections are almost upon us. We are glad to see that the Liberals do not propose to be caught napping this time. If they have not taken time exactly by the forelock, they have not, at all events, let the opportunity altogether pass by. TIle standard bearers of the party have been se- lected, an dto the credit alike of their cour- age and their wisdom, the Liberals have de- cided to run a full ticket of candidates for each of the two wards. In the Western Ward most people, what- ever their political views, will regret the re- tirement of Councillor Pierce. Mr Pierce has proved himself a capable man of busi- ness not only in his own firm, but on the Council, and it is matter for general regret that he has decided to retire from the Coun- I cil. He need have feared no foe in an elec- tion, as his past record clearly shows. The four Liberal candidates are: The Mayor (Mr Edward Hughes), Dr Parry (both mem- bers of the Council), and Mr Owen Jones, Green Bank, and Mr Thomas Hughes, Bar- ranco (new candidates). This is hardly the time to sound the praises of individual candidates, but we fetl sure all who are not blinded by party p-e-, judice will unite in according the Mayor the highest meed of praise. Under peculiarly trying circumstances he has discharged tte duties of chief magistrate of the town with an ability, a devotion, and a dignity which have commanded universal esteem. Dr. Parry has not been so much in the public eye as the Mayor, but the work he has done on behalf of the town since he has sat on the Council is such as should entitle him :iot only to the support of his own party but to the good will of his opponents. In the Eastern Ward, the Liberals have paid both Mr Gregory and Mr John Ress the compliment of offering them a walk over. If the Conservatives be equally wise and equally magnanimous these two triod and faithful public servants will be return unopposed. Should, however, the Tories clast in the apple of discord by running a se- cond candidate, the Liberals are prepared with a colleaque for Mr John Rees in the person of Mr Griffith Owen, who would prove a valuable acquisition to the Council. The question may be asked, Are the Liberals acting wisely in running four can- (lidates for the Western Ward, and two for the Eastern ? Can they hope to carry their men in? Let the result of East Denbigh election furnish the answer. There, under peculiarly unfavourable eirc-imstances the Liberals have scored a bigger majority than ever. Careful enquiry establishes the fact that this result has been obtained purely and solely by the fidelity of the wot king classes. Let the working men of Carnar- von be as thoughtful of their own interests as have those of East Denbigh, and a Liberal municipal victory at Carnarvon in November will be as possible—and as credi- table—as the Liberal Parliamentary victory in East Denbigh in September. ¡:¡; "'4¿:,

CARNARVON LIBERAL ASSOCIATION. The annual meeting of the Carnarvon Liberal Association was held at the Reform Club, Carnarvon, on Tuesday night, under the presidency of Dr R. Parry (chairman), to arrange for the coming visit of Mr As- quith, and to make preparations for the municipal elections.—With regard to the Liberal demonstration, it was reported that a date had not yet been fixed for the visit of the right hon. gentleman, an dit was re- solved to let him chose any date between October 20th and 28th. In addition to the gentlemen already appointed by the Boroughs Liberal Association as a commit- tee to carry out the final arrangements, the following gentlemen from the local asso- ciation were elected: —The Chairman, Messrs B. G. Evans, Peter Hughes, J. Owen, H. Parry, Thomas, and Williams.— Messrs R. O. Roberts (secretary of the Boroughs Liberal Association), and Mr B. G. Evans were elected to represent the local association at the Convention of Welsh Liberals to be heM at Cardiff at the end of next month, and it was understood that another delegates would be appointed by the executive committee.—A long dis- cussion took place relative to the forthcom- ing municipal election. It was announced that the Mayor (Mr E. Hughes), Dr R. Parry, and Mr D.Pierce (Liberals), and Mr W. Hamer (Conservative) retired in the Western Ward. The Mayor and Dr Parry had expressed their readiness to seek re- election, but Mr Pierce, who would be a strong candidate, has signified his intention of retiring. The meeting adopted tho Mayor and Dr Parry as candidates, and dis- cussion ensued as to whether the Liberal party should contest two, three, or four seats in the ward.—Mr D. Morris proposed that they should contest only two, but on the motion of Mr Beriah Evans it was re- solved to contest the four seats, Messrs O. Jones (Green Bank) and Thomas Hughes (Barranco) being nominated in addition to rra T the gentlemen already named.—The chair- man thanked the meeting for hav- ing again selected him fis a candidate, and he promised to do all in his power to carry out the wishes of the elect- ors. Speaking on behalf of the Mayor he said that that gentleman would have been present that night but for the fact that he did not think it would be right on his part to attend whilst he still hold the position of Mayor, an office which he had filled totthe satisfaction of all (hear, bear).- A resolution by Mr Beriah Evans that all the candidates should pledge themselves to support the Liberal party on the Council if returned was carried unanimously With regard to the Eastern Ward, it was resolved to support the candidature of Mr John Rees, the retiring Liberal councillor, and in the event of the Conservatives nomi- nating only Mr Gregory, that he be allowed a walk over. Should the Conservatives, however, select another candidate, either with cr instead of Mr Gregory, then the Liberals would contest both seats, and in that case Mr Griffith Owen, Biyndina?, was selected to champion the Liberal cause,

This is not quite so bad as the man, who, having kept too close a friendship with Sir John Barley. corn, inserted an advertisement in a news- paper offering a reward for ioformation as to his whereabouts. THE RETURN OF THE VICTORS.- On Saturday the news spread rapidly that the local Rifle Volunteer Corps had been eminently successful in the shootig com- petition at Conway, and upon their return at night, they were met at the railway station by a large crowd of people who escorted them through the streets, the baud meanwhile playing the stirring "March of the Men of Harlech." THE HEALTH OF THE TOWN.-At a meeting of the Sanitary Committee on Tuesday night, Mr R. E. Owen drew atten- tion to a paragraph which appeared in a daily contemporary stating: thnt an epidemic or scarlet itvur uau Giv-H-r. out III tiistown, and that the authorities contemplated closing the schools. Dr Fraser, the medical officer of health, and Mr E. Roberts, the sanitary inspector, explained that the state- ments contained in the paragraph in question were highly exaggerated. Dr Fraser was asked to publish a contradiction, pointing out that the authorities did not see the slightest necessity for closing the schools. CHASED BY AN INFURIATED BULL —The other day two young women went to gather blackberries in a field off Llanberis road, and whilst they were busy picking the berries they heard the bellowing of a bull, and turning suddenly in the direction whence the noise came they were terribly alarmed to find the animal rushing head- long towards them. They screamed and ran but knew not whither. A number of cyclists saw the intensely exciting chase, but could render no assistance beyond urging the girls to run towards them. Fortunately they did so, and ware helped over the fence, which was rather high. Not a whit too soon did they reach the safe side of the hedge for the infuriated bull was almost at their bee's. v WEDDING.—The marriage of Miss Theiesa Vaugban and Mr S. W. Parnham was solemnized on Tuesday morning at Llanbeblig Church. Both bride and bride- groom are very well-known in the town. A large DunAwr of relatives and friends witnessed the interesting ceremony, which was performed by the Rev J. W. Wynne Jones, vicar. The bride, who was given away by her father, was attended by Miss Florence Moore, Mr Alfred Thomas the best man. Mr J. Williams (organist of Christ Church) played the Wedding March" as the wedding party left the church. In the course of the day Mr and Mrs Parnham left for Rbyl, where the honeymoon will be spent. Both bride and bridegroom were 1h3 recipients of numerous and costly presents. A number of the I bridegroom's friends have decided to present him upon his return with an address acknowledging the valuable services he has rendered to charitable causes in the town. REGA1TAS PAST AND PRESENT.— It is surprising what a greit change the whirligig of time has made in the regattas I held under the auspices of the Royal Welsh Yacht Club. In the window of the estab- lishment of Mr Hagh Williams, cabinet maker, there is shown a programme of events of a two days' regatta held in August, 1847. Each day a chief prize of JE40 was offered, but now, with only a oue- day regatta, tte chief prize only amounts to half that sum. Then there were magni- ficent fireworks, together with grand balls, at which the representative county families were tripping it on the light fantastic toe, but now, alas we must be content with a few stray crackers, the smell of chip pota- toes, and the throwing of bits of coloured paper called confetti. POOLE'S MYRIORAMA.—During last week Mr Joseph Poole's Myriorama occu- pied the boards at the Pavilion. Needless to say that such a well-known and highly interesting entertainment attracted large audience nightly. In addition to being shewn the principal sights of the world, com- mencing with a magnificent view of Princess street, Edinburgh, one of the most handsome streets in Europe, the audience were given a glimpse of the blockade of Crete, the Turko-Greek war, and the China and Japan war. The exhibition of pictures was supple- mented by a variety entertainment, amongs the artistes being Engist and Orsa, musical grotesques; West and Selby, i na comic con- juring sketch; Herr Vogeler, tight wire artiste; Miss May Finch, serio-comic song and dance artiste. The performing cocka- toos of Mdlle. Aladina were truly wonder- ful, and remarkably well-trained, whilst Mr Felix Somers, the facial king, amused the audience with a unique performance of "People we know." M. De Henan painted with his feet better than many can with their nimble fingers, and the Saletos father and children gymnasts, gave an excellent turn. The living pictures portrayed by the im- proved cinematograph were exceedingly good. ._r. THE NURSES' INSTITUTE.—The lal- ance-sheet of the local branch of the Dis- trict Nursing Society shows that the total receipts for 1896-97 amounted to JE176, in- cluding £ 85 proceeds of the bazaar, £ T2 subscriptions, &c. The expenses included E30 salary for the nurse apartments, £ 26; board and laundry, zC34, &c., and there re- mained at the close of the financial year a balance in the bank of L77. An appeal is now made for subscriptions for the current year. Any sum will be gratefully received yb the nurse, who will pass it over to the committee; and subscriptions are also re- ceived at Lloyd's Bank. Miss Pugh, :3ryn. menai, North road, is the energetic secre- tray. The good work done through this branch will appeal strongly to subscribers the work is steadily increasing and there is no doubt that the nurse is being more and more appreciated in the town.

Afterwards it was found that the girl had never been in service at Fodol Ganol, and a warrant was issued for her apprehension. P.C. Jones (31) said that he went to Penygroes on the 22nd inst., and found the prisoner in the house with her mother. When charged, she denied that she was at Portdinorwic on the day in question, and said that she had never a watch and chain in her possession. Dur- ing the conversation between witness and prisoner, the irther went to a drawer and produced a watch and chain, which the con- stable identified as the property of Mr Bankes. On the application of D.C.C. Harris she was remanded until Saturday, bail being allowed. BOROUGH MAGISTRATES' COURT.— Pritchard, J. Davies (Gwyneddon), R. Ro- On Monday, before the Mayor, Messrs J.

This he refused to take, and, accord- ing to the rules of the society to which he belonged, he gave the defendant 14 days' notice to leave. This notice was received by the defeidant about eight o'clock on a Mon- L'aj morning, and when witness went to v/ork about half-past nine on that mornine, a note was handed him from the defendant stfting that there was no need for him to jv e a fortnight's notice, as he would not want his services after the following Sab ii"- d;iy.

SERFOUS A<CD>ENT TO COL. K. AP KU WILLIAMS. On Saturday afternoon a serious accident befell Col. R. Pp Hu Williams, whilst he, together with Mr C. A. Jones, was inspect- ing the new sea wall now in course of erec- tiontion by the low-water landing stage. Both gentlemen as members of the Har- I bour Trust, took deep interest in the pro- gress of the works, an din order to have a better view of the portion already con- structed, Col. Williams stepped on the end cf the plank, but no sooner had he done so, than the timber topped over with the re- sult that he was precipitated to the depths below. The plank also fell upon his leg, smashing it a few inches above the ankle. Several persons went to the assistance of the unfortunate gentleman, who, after hav- ing being seen by Dr W. G.Owen, was car- ried under Mr Charles Jones's direction to teh Cottage Hospital, where an amput non of the iimb was effected by Dr Owen and John Williams. A telegram was also sent to Dr Bickersteth, of Liverpool, who is an intimate friend of the Colonel, and i now staying in Anglesey, and he arrived oon after the operation had been completed. The Dean of St. Asaph, who is a brother of 0 Colonel Williams, also arrived in the town during the night. Though Colonel AVil- liams was reported to be doing well on Sun- r, day, on Monday he had a relapse, andtrave fears were entertained as to his recovery. Tc-day (Thursday), however, he is reported to be slightly better.
EAST DENBIGHSHIRE ELECTION. MAGNIFICENT LIBERAL TRIUT>ffH. The result of the polling in East Denbigh- shire was declared on Wednesday, and shewed a magnificent victory for the Li beral candidate. The numbers weTe :Mr Moss (L.), 5,175; MdKenyon (C.), 2,848: ma- jority, 2,326. These figures are a great advance cn anv previous record in the division. In 1895 the Liberal majority was 1.7S1, while in 1892 it was only 765. PRESS OPINIONS. "Manchester Guardian" says:— The. completeness of the Conservative rout in East Denbighshire has greatly exceeded expectation. In 1895 the late Sir G. Osborne Morgan, who had held the seat for many years and was exceptionally well known and liked in the division, defeated Mr Raikes by a msjority cf 1,784. On Tuesday Mr Moss, a new man, who was expected to fight at some disadvantage, beat Mr Keoyor, a popular Conservative- candidate, by the huge majority of 2 827. The Liberal poll was higher, a-d the Conservative poll lower than at anv previous election in the constituency. T, v elections ever since 1895 have Shown a steady and pretty quick decay in the Government s popularity, but this vear the pace has quickened wonderfully, to iudee by Romford, Walthamstow, ard East Denbigh It may fairly, we think, be inferred that the eountry is turning with, difgust from the spiritless foreiga polxev of the last two years. The Liverpool Mercury says The magnificent success of Mr Moss in East Denbighshire proves in an indisputable manner that the Welsh people are faithful to the old programme of Disestablishment and Reform of the Land Laws. Though Mr Kenyon endeavoured to pose as a Liberal upon many other questions, he was pledged to the support of the Anglican EsMhlish- ment and to the maintenance of the 1,1 system of land tenure, and he has been emphatically rejected by the electors. Those who imagined that the great Noaconfurnjist majority had reconciled themselves to the ecclesiastical system of which the Bishop of St. Asaph is the choicest flower must admit that they were the victims of a pleasing self-delusion. The only explanation which can be suggested of the unexpected growth, of the Liberal majority, and the szill more surprising diminution of the Tory minority, is that the rocent domestic legislation and foreign policy of the Government huve not met with the approval of public opinion. Lord Salisbury's weakness and Mr Bahour's anxiety to appropriate public money for hif landed and clerical supporters have noc been forgotteu, and will cost many votes. The "Liverpool Daily Post" says- The stunning victory' in East Denbigh shire w-ill probably call into request a favourite modern slang word, for it is a u- cord.' Of course, there have been majori- ties as great or greater, but it is indeed in unprecedented circumstsncc for a candi- date to be returned by a majority oi 2327, when his supporters have not counted upon his having a larger majority thai. 50) Liberal principles have not fallen b^ek n public esteem in East Denbighshire. Wh it is true of East Denbighshire is protú y true of Wales, and the circumstan ,ea which have contributed to give a cnmpa a- tively unknown aspirant a more splei lid triumph than was ever achieved by his veteran predecessor, Sir George Osb .rue Morgan, are likely enough to inc ease Liberal majorities, and to multiply L; ieral majorities in England."
