Bangor Junior Reform Club. REJECTION, OF HOME RULE. The -del),oto on'the Home Rule Bill, in- troduced by the "opposition," was re- sumed on I'Viday evening by Mr Stephen Jones, the "hon. member" for Rosseudale, 1 who said that Ireland was'one- of the most distressed countries that anyone who studied history could point out. They had appealed to the "House," time after time, for redress, but in vain. They were not asking for any doles, but merely for justice to the Irish nation In 1800 a promise was made that Ireland should no longer be a stranger to the liberties which Englishmen enjoyed, and that the religion of the coun- try should be respected. It had been as- sorted that they were given the same pri- vileges as any other subject of the British Empire. That was not true. They had been repeatedly taunted with the allega- tion that Irishmen were traitors (cries of "Shame"). Were the brave Irishmen, fight- ing in South Africa, traitors; men who had shed their blood and had responded gal- lantly to the can of the Empire ? If they could do deeds of this kind in bondage, what could they do if given their freedom ? (loud "opposition" cheers). No country ever rose so rapidly in wealth, agriculture and general prosperity as Ireland in 1772 and 1780, in which year the rebellion broke out, and destroyed the prosperity of the country. Under the Act of Union Irishmen were promised that their religion should be respected, and they had knocked at the door of Parliament for the emancipation of Catholics 'in Ireland, but they were met with a; blank refusal. The "First Lord of the Admiralty" had spoken of massacres in Ireland. Had the Oatholics ever persecu- ted the Protestants ? On the contrary, Ire- land had been a haven, of rest for the Pro- testants. But what did they see in Bel- fast? In that place. there was no open door for the Catholics. Ireland had dso sent several prominent Protestants to »e- present it in Parliament. Sir Gavin Duff, I one of the brightest jewels of the country, was convicted as a tra.itor to his country, and was sentenced to be hanged, drawn, and quartered. Certain measures had been granted to Ireland, but, he was sorry to say, at a time when the sore had gone tco deep to remedy, when the disease had taken root, and when the patient was dying (hear, hear). In conclusion be hoped that His Majesty King Edward would attach his signature to one of the greatest measures ever brought forward, and which would give liberty to the down-trodden people of Ireland (loud "opposition" cheers). Mr J. Henry Jones ("East Manchester") did not complain of the length of the speeches of the promoters of the Bill, but he expected sound argument in its favour, and had been disappointed. He did not attribute that to the "hen. members'' themselves, but to the weakness of their cause ("ministerial" cheers). In bringing the Bill before the "House," the ''hon. members" were incurring a grave responsi- bility, and people who, no doubt, were suffering to some extent from pat wrorgs were encouraged by their leaders to dis- obey what they regarded as unjust laws (hear, hear). After severely criticising the action of "the member for Bradford," the "hon. gentleman" proceeded to say that no true friend of Ireland would have submit- ted such a Bill. The state of Ireland had been critical, but the Irish people were re- markable for their obedience to the law at ordinary times. However, they were an excitable people, and at times they broke out 'in violence and disorder (A voice: "The result of bad laws"). He submitted that it was because of the nature of the people. If Coercion Acts had been passed, it was the duty of every man. to obey those laws. Mr Grey Owen ("Monmouth"), in support- ing the Bill, commented upon the statement that the Irishmen were a rebellious people. He contended that an attempt by white slaves to be liberated could not fce termed rebellion. If Ireland was allowed Home Rule, instead of being a thon in the side of this country, it would be a white rose in its breast. What right had they to say that Irishmen rebelled against a Government whose rule they never accepted.. Mr 0. T. Owen said that during the dis- cussion re?,son had been conspicuous by :ts absence, and sentiment, had been very freely expounded. They should leave sen- timent for mothers' meetings (laughter). Was there, he asked, any grievances at pre- sent existing in Ireland which could not be settled by tho Imperial Government (cheers). At present, their brave soldiers were fighting m South Africa for a united Epieo, and the members opposite were bringing forward a measure to divide the Empire, ("ministerial" cheers). Mr Morgan, Independent College* ("Morthvr'') directed attention to the fact that £56,000 was paid, out of a rate col- lected from the Irish people, in support of an alien Chnrcn. In 1823 Irishmen suffered great hardships, in the attempt of the sold- iers to collect the tithe, the same hardship having also been suffered by Welsh farmers. He reminded them that £ 10,000 a. year was collected from the Irish people to carry on a college which was foreign to their reli- gious feelings, and the country had to maintain Trinity College, Dublin, thereby sustaining a cause which was agninst their spirit as a nation. The secretaryship of Ireland cost the Government something like £ 40,000 a year, whilst the Lord Lieutenant, who, in the name .of the Gov- ernment, ruled the country, was paid £ 7000 a year. Mr Cleaton Jones ("Orkney and Shet- Slands") stated that it was one of the sad- dest thingp that the, "House" had to meet this subject again. To have their feelings touched was one thing, but to have their reason converted was another (hear, hear). The "Government" had admitted that grievances did exist in Ireland, and they had, with the view to their reduction, passed special land measures, but it did not mean that they were going to give the country Home Rule simply because it fancied that it had grievances. Coercion Acts had been passed, and perhaps failed in their object. He favoured administrative independence for Ireland, but not legisla- tive independence. It was necessary for Ireland to be attached to this country be. cause the interest of both were mutual, and, if grq-nted, Ttuirto Rule, Ireland would pro- bably pass laws to suit their own purpose, the effect of which might be adverse to this country. The "leader of the opposition" (Mr Dud- ley Morgan), who was received with loud cheers) from 'the "opposition" benches, declared that persons crying that there was no reason in their opponents' speeches were covering a sad deficiency in their own ("opposition" cheers). He wished to dispute one point which the "hen. gen- tlemen" had made considerable capital of. Obedience to the law was virtue, and dis- obedience to the law was not a virtue, sa:id the gentlemen opposite. He would remind them of what Edmund Burke aid-tha.t there was a, limit when even forbearance ceased to be a virtue '(hear, hear). Dis- obedience to an unjust laTT war; sometimes a virtue. If a law was introduced under which Englishmen suffered a great injustice, the man that did not then revolt was not
Crown Rights in Foreshores. At the Carnarvon County Council, oil Thursday, the Board of Trade submitted three proposed grants of Crown rights in foreshores for the observations of the Council—namely, to the Bangor Cor- poration for the improvement of the Slhven Baths on the Menai Straits, to Mr T. G. Williams, Criccieth, for the pur- pose of reclaiming foreshore at the mouth of the Dwyfor by an embankment, and t t Mr M. J. Regan, sub-lessee of the Tany- graig Quarry, Uanaelhaiarn, for the pur- poses of a contemplated p'ier. It was re- solved that the Board of Trade be informed that the Council have no observations to make as to the applications, that the Board of Trade be thanked for the communications £ ,nd for the opportunity of expressing opin- ions thereon, and that the Dwyfor Fishery Board be Lotified of the application by Mr T. G. Williams, Oriocieth. Mr E. R. Da vies, Pwllheli, took strong exception to the Committee's recommenda- tion as to the proposed grants of foreshore. He was strongly of opinion that not an inch of Crown .Linds should be sold to any individual person or private company. Any transference of Crown rights in foreshores and other Crown lands should be to the local authority of the district where such property was situated. He bad no ob- jection to tho Bangor application, which was made by the- Town Council with the object of establishing public baths under the control of the Town Council. In the case of Criccieth and Llanaelhaiarn, how- ever, it was different, the application beinc I made by private individuals. He knew of instances where Crown property had been sold some time ago for £ 76, which could not now be bought for £ 2000. This ought not to be tolerated under any circumstances. He moved as an amendment to the Com-: niittee'f, report thrt the Council inform tho Board of Trade that the Council W[I.5 strongly opposed' to the sale of Crown Lands to irdividuals under any circumstances, but tha'o they do not oppose the application from Bangor.—After some discussion the amendment was unanimously adopted.
Carnarvon Consty Council; This Council held its quarterly meeting at Carnarvon on Thursday, the Chairman (Mr J. Jones-Morris) presiding.—The Chairman, before proceeding to the ordi- nary business, referred to the irreparable loss which the country has sustained in the death of her Majesty the Qnc-en, and said it was with the greatest delight that the subjects of this vast Empire learnt cf the King's first public declaration that it would be his endeavour to follow in the steps of his mother. He moved a resolution ex- pressing grief at the death of the Queen, sympathy with the Roya.l Family, and offer- ing congratulations to the King on his ac- cession. The Lord Lieutenant (Mr J. r" Greaves) seconded the motion, which was carried in s-Ience.-I%lx J. R. Pritchard pro- posed a vote of condolence with the family of the late Mr J. J. Evans, who was 3, faith- ful and valuable member OftllClo Council. Mr W. J. Parry briefly seconded, and the motion was agreed to in. silence, all the members standing.—The Asylum Com- mittee had held a meeting th,\t morning, at which returns of the number of jmtienca from Carnarvonshire and Anglesey in. tao Asylum were produced, and as a result the following resolution was adopted: -"Th.. in view of the prospect that the pre-ent buildings will 'in the near future be inade- quate to provide accommodation for all the patients, a joint conference be held te- tween representatives of this Council and Anglesey County Council to consider the i matter generally, and to report thereon to the respective Cbuncils." Mr Issard Davies, in moving the adoption of the fore- going, said that at the present rate the Asylum would fill in two years. It was high t'ime that Carnarvonshire and Angle- sey should move in the direction of having a separate asylum, as neither county had any control whatever over the institution owing to the predominance of the Denbigh element and the fact that the Den- bigh Town Council placed even- obstacle in the way of having improvements carried out in the Asylum. Mr Henry Parry sec- onded the resolution, which was carried.— Llandegai parish was diviaed into two wards, and it was agreed that the whole of the members of Bettwsyeced Urban Dis- trict Council should retire together every three years.—The Clerk was directed to attend an inquiry to be held by the County Council of Denbighshire to support the pro- posal that the township of Eirias, Colwyn Bay, should be separated from the urban district of Colwyn Bay, with the view cf it being joined with the parish of Lly-faen to form an urban district in the county of Carnarvon.
THE 20th CENTURY. Do you noW' that it has often been said that great events happen at the end and at the beginning of a Century? No doubt we shall have the usual prophets forecasting the probabilities of all sorts of startling oc- currences to mark the commencement of the 20th Century, but there is no one bold enough to predict that there will be less of pain and suffering, less of human in ise ry, and disease in the World. The lot of human kind is to suffer, and the greatest benefac- tor is he who doea something to mitigate pa:i.n and affliction. "Never prophesy till you know" is a wise saying, and we adopt this maxim when we say that Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters is destined to occupy a greatly extended sphere of use- fulness in the new Century. It has been proved by thousands of sufferers to be the one safe and certain remedy for all Nervous Disorders, Low Spirits, DepressiSh, Liver Complaints, Indigestion, 1Mld General Weakness.

Death ot Vice-Principalk John Tfiomas, Bangor. The death occurred at his residence, tpper Bangor, cn Saturday afternoon, of Mr John Thomas, Vice-Principal of the Normal College, Bangor. Mr Thomas was a native of Festiniog, and began his edu- cational career as a pupil-teacher in the- old British School at BbcnH1 Festiniog, whence he went to the Borough-road Training Col- lege, London. He subsequently took a school at Llan Ffestiniog, but only re- mained there a short time, and then be- came head master at the school in Blaenau Festiniog, where he had formerly been pupil tea.chor. After a short time there he re- turned to London to istudy for his degree, after taking which he was asked to under- take the mathematical tutorship at the Bangor Normal College. This was in 1864, and his success in this particular depart- ment of tuition was. very successful, Mr Thomas being considered one of the ablest and most successful mathematical tutors in the United Kingdom. Tea years ago he was appointed Vice-Principal of the college, Si post which he held up to the time of hi* death, though two years ago, on account of his failing health, the committee granted him a deputy. Symptoms of incipient paralysia became apparent about this time, nd though he rallied on several occasions, his health was really broken, and ho died peacefully about fire o'clolck on Saturday from syncope. He was sixty-seven vears of age, and leaves a widow and three children. Mr Thcmas ho.ppily "blended the strict dis- ciplinarian in the kindly friend and helper, and hundreds of students of the Normal Coillpge, as well as many friends, will- feel his death as a personal loss. Though not in the general sense of fTie woTd a. public man, Mr Thomas was an important factor in the various educational movements in Wales, many of which owed their inception to him. By his death the cause of educa- tion in \Va.Ít>,q is distinctly the poorer. The funeral took place on Tuesday morn- ing. The coffin was borne by college stu- dents from the house to the Prinze's road Presbyterian Chapel, of which deceased had for many years been an officer.

THE CASE OF THE REV W. 0. JONES, B.A. MASS MEETIG AT CARNABVON. On Saturday a mass meeting was held at Carnarvon in support of the agitation for a re-hearing of the case against the Rev. W. O. Jones, late of Chatham street. Liver- pool. In the afternoon a conference was held to discuss ways and means, and after a, long discussion it was resolved that the committee which had summoned the meet- ing, with pewer to add to its number, should remain in charge of the movement and make all necessary arrangements to press for a. re-hearing of the whole case under conditions which the committee should deem to be fair. At the close of the conference a public meeting was held at the Pavilion. By the time the proceedings commenced the build- ing was mofj than three-fourths full. When the Rev. W O. Jones, accompanied by his solicitor, Mr Griffith Caradoc Rees, appeared on the pla.tf-.rm, ho was heartily cheered. The chair was taken hy Mr G. J. Hughes, county councilor, Llanberis. He said that many asked vhat this gathering portended, and what the object of the whole agitation was. It had. been said that their object was to attack the ministers of the Connex- ion, to create discord in. churches, to des- troy connexion, to produce a loose, inver- tebrate profession of religion, and to make the, guilty appear innocent. He denied ail these allegations. That meeting might he- lieve Mr W. O. Jones to be innocent—(ap- plause)—but they had no right to say that he was; for they had no evidence to prove him eithrr guilty or innocent. All the meeting demanded was to. bring to the light of day what had hitherto been kept carefully hidden in this matter. What en- dangered the unity of the Connexion was not the action of those who demanded jus- tice, but rather the action of committees who insisted on keeping in the dark things ihat should be brought to the light of day. Si uch as he respected the ministers of the Connexion, he admiffed he could not un- derstand their action in this matter. The best preachers were not always the best committeemen, or the men possessed of the most- judicial minds (applause). Mr G. Williams, Waeufawr, a member of Mr Jones's eld church, moved the following resolution —"That this meeting, consisi- ing for a great part of Walsh Calvinistic Methodists, protests again&t the Liverpool Monthly Meeting in refusing to grant the Rev. W. Ü, Jones a copy of the evidence against him; that we erdorse the two re- quests made by Mr Jones, viz. (1) to be supplied with a written cupv of all the charges and evidence against him, and (2) for an open trial sucji as he has described. That we are strongly of opinion th '.t HO- thing less than the granting of quests can new serve to satisfy the public and Calvinistic churches, and that we pic-age ourselves to do all in our power to assist in securing for Mr Jones what he now seoiss." The mover of the resolution said he had known Mr Jonts for twenty-two )f;a.S" and could from personal experience testify to the beneficia1 influence exerc-i;ed by lis friendship and teaching. He had found him at all times a faithful friend, a tlorcugh gentleman, and a worthy minister of the Gospel (applause). Mr W. W. Jones (Cyrus), Llanllyfni, ex- president- of the North Wales Quarrymen'' Umor, seconded. He failed to see any- thing in the rules of the Connexion to pre- vent the Association granting Mr Jones what he asked for (applause). It was diffi- cult at present to say who wero the prose- cuto-s and who the judges in the case (laughter). Had the church at Chatham stret, through its diaconate, prosecuted Mi Jonas they could understand the situation, but they had not done so. If the com- mi'.tee of investigation had sought evidence thoy were evidently disqualified to act a judges (applause). They should have placed the evidence they had collected before an- other committee, who would sift and weign ti e evidence thus collected, but the same persons should not act both as prosecutors a id judges (applause). If Mr W. 0. Jones were guilty, let the truth be made known, and let the Monthly Meeting's verdict be justified; but let them have none of these h«*cret> proceedings. Let them do away with every vestige of Popish customs in their de- nomiaation (applause). He regretted to say it, but it was his duty to say it, that a rift was being made between the pulpit and the people, between the ministry and the masses (cries of "Quite true," and ap- plause). It was alleged, and with truth, thai. a distinction was being made between the rich and the poor by the ministry, and the result was that the churches were in danger of being emptied (applause). Mr R. O. Glyn Roberts, a member of the church at Chatham street, said the matter wuuld nerer have been heard of had there not oeen some disagreement in Chatham street. The deacons there had forgotten they were only the servants of the church, and tried to posei as its masters. He be- lieycd that given the opportunity, Mr Jones votiid prove his innocence. He adsiircu the; pulpit oratory of the ministers wliu composed the investigation committee, but r.3 had no respect for their judicial capa- nty. The committee was appointed as a ;emmittee of investigation only; they then became prosecutors; and now postd as judges. The Rev. W. O. Jones, who was receivee: with great enthusiasm, next addressed, the meeting, and expressed his heartfelt grati- tude for the attendance of so great a multi- tude of his friends. The Liverpool Montn- ly Meeting had declared him guilty of offences too shocking to be mentioned and if they had believed that that verdict was a just one, instead of assembling there in their thousands they might have been aToiding him as they would a leper. It had been said that only the dregs of so- ciety attended these meetings—(laughter) but he must say that he was not ashamed of his company (a. Voice: "And we are not ashamed of you, either, and applause). That great concourse, brought together from distant places, showed to him that his fellow-countrymen had not al- together despaired of him—(hear, hear)— and that they were not entirely convinced that the Liverpool Monthly Meeting were infallible (applause). The great body of the public did not know whether he was guilty or innopeiit; but some of his closest friends believed) he was innocent, and there was one, and that was himself, who knew that he waja innocent (loud applause). He be- lieved that the motto of that great meeting was "Fairplay." He desired nothing more. He only asked for the evidence and for an open trial; and he was not afraid that any fair-minded man would say that he was ask- ing for what was unreasonable (applause). He wanted all secrecy to be. dissipated, and he trusted that that meeting would send lorth a. clear, unanimous voice that would be ringing in the ears of the Liverpool Monthly Meeting for weeks to come (loud applause). It would serve no useful pur- pose to reiterate the facts of the case, bui he was prepared to stand by everything he had stated. He was accused cf having madei misstatements. He did not ask them to believe his word as against that of the Monthly Meeting; all he asked them was to k-ee a record of the case, and to read it ■

Mr. William Leonard Ansell is a smith ty trade, agd 30, and married, living at 8, Queen-street, Hemel Hempstead, Herts. To a reporter of the Hernel Hempstead Gazette, he made the following statement In 1899 I was working in the Armstrong big gun factory at Openshaw, Manchester,, but after I had been there a few months I felt a loss of nerve power, and was attacked with fainting fits. Time passed and I got no better. More than once I almost fell down at my work. My head became dizzy and my eyesight weak. But worse than that were cold perspirations. I could sit in front of a roaring fire with streams of sweat running down my face and yet feel cold the whole time. At last I had to give up work and come home, but I hadn't been in Hempstead very long before the pains returned more violently than before. So bad did I get that I couldn't st stilllon enough to eat my meals. I tried doctors' medicine, and a public institution, but felt no better. I couldn't understand what was the matter with me, though one doctor described it as nervous debility. This state of affairs went on for several months, until I thought I had gone past recovery, when one day a friend said, Why don't you try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People ? I believe they would do you good.' By this time I was beginning to lose faith in the medicine I had been taking, so I agreed to try a box of the pills and bought some. Before 1 had taken six pills I felt a change for the better. I continued taking them, and before I had finished the box they had pulled me round splendidly. Since then I have had more, and am now in as good health as ever I was, which I believe to be due entirely to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I can honestly say they did me a world of good." Mrs. Ansell remarked in corroboration: "He used to walk the room for hours in the night, being unable to sleep. It was a very anxious time, but now he is quite well again. We shall nevoc be able to say too much for what Dr. Williams' Pink Piflp have done for us." Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People have cured Enumerable cases of various forms of nervous disorders, including Paralysis, Locomotor Ataxy, St. Vitus' Dance, Rheumatism, Sciatica, Neuralgia, and Early Decay; also all diseases arising from impoverishment of the blood, such as Scrofula, Rickets, Consumption, Anaemia, Pale and Sallow Complexion, General Muscular Weakness, Ijf ss of Appetite, Palpitations, Pains in the Back, and all forms o( female weakness. 0 A Tonie, not a Purgative. They give Strength.
:p.1m at the close ot the open trial (ap- plause) It had now been admitted that there wore no shocking charges against c!y him; and 'if there was no explanation of this extraordinary change of frcnt, then he said it was not conduct worthy of honour- able men, to say nothing of leaders in the Church of Christ. He had been asked why he vas agitating, and why he did not ap- peal to the- Quarterly Association. His reply was that the moment a responsible pledge was given that his demands would be granted he would do his best to stop the agitation (hear, hear). "'You are imperil- ling the integrity of the Connexion, he b.Cl been told. There might be some danger, but what were the facts ? Six months ago he was denounced as unfit to n.;x in decent society, and now it was said there was a danger of his stealing the allegiance of half the Connexion (laughter and applause). He asked for the evidence. Was that fair P (cries of "Yes"). He would say this much-it must be obtained (ap- plause). As long as he oculd use his tongue or his pen he would not cease his demand for it; and he believed he could convince the body of the Welsh people of one or two tlnIigs-namely, that either there was no evidence worth showing in the possession of the committee, or that it was not suffi- cient to uphold their verdict (applause). He absolutely declined to submit himself to another secret committee, and he trusted that secrecy in such cases would end for ever. He was asked why ho did not trust the Quarterly Association. That was one of his greatest sins, and the only unpardon- able one. He had had already a somewhat bitter experience, and having once burnt his fingers he did not intend to do so again (applause). But why should there be any question of confidence? This was a matter br the open daylight. The committee must be open for the sake of the committee it- self and he believed that no man who had any regard for his reputation would dare to sit on this matter in secret again (loud applause). He had been charged with shirking an inquiry. He had tried to bring the matter into a civil court he had asked the Monthly Meeting to make the evidence public, and he was asking for an open in- quiry. All these things had been refused, and it was said that he was shirking the matter. It wa& ".aid that he would never appeal because the case against him was too black. He had asked his friend, Mr G. C. Rees, to draw up the! notice of appeal, and as soon as that was ready it would be for- warded (applause). Tliere was a great de- to stop the agitation the whole energy | of Liverpool officialism had been directe d to- wards quelling the storm. Some of the Liverpool ministers had, since his dismissal, been using every opportunity both in that city and on their journeys in Wales to blacken his character by retailing the ugliest tales about him, which they knew, or ought to know, were naked untruths .(ap- plause). His supporters were, even threat- ened with Church discipline (loud-laughter). There was fear of an explosion, and the method adopted to prevent it was to sit on the safety valve (hear, hear). As illustrat- ing the methods adopted to silenco him, he read a letter, dated Liverpool, February 8th, and signed "Torn Jones," which he had received on the previotis night. The writer stated that he had been one of Mr Jones's supporters "throughout this awful ordeal." He had been told by an Englishman of high standing in the town that he and three others had seen Mr Junes "reeling drunk on that voyage," and that gentleman had promised not to communicate with the Presbytery on condition .that Mr Jones would not go to the Carnarvon or any ether meeting. "Now, my dear sir," added the writer, "don't go to Carnarvon; get 1'i or .scmeth"ig. Mind you, this letter is no hoax or dodge, but is as true as God is in heaven." He (Mr Jones) challenged that gentleman, if be exited, to come forward and, more than that, he challenged nny man to eoin&i forward in his presence and siv that he had seen him drunk or under the influence of drink (loud applause). Mr G. C. Rees (Mr Jones's solicitor) liexi- sroke. He said Mr Jones war. prepared to appeal, but he laid down four conditions which they would all agree were emine-ntly fair. These were (1) a copy of the evidence advanced against him before the committee in the first instance (2) that a shorthand rote-taker .should bo present to take down the whole of the evidence; (3) that Mr Jenes should he accompanied by two tr three friends; and finally that nothing should be said affecting the case to the judges or committee except in Mr Jones's presence1. Sir Jones and his committee were prepared to give pledges that no legal proceedings should be taken against any witness who might give evidence, however slanderous, against Mr Jones at this new irvestigation. He undertook to say that the appeal on these conditions would be in the hands of the Connexional authori- ties by Thursday next (applause). He asked that meeting to support the appeal by taking care that when the matter came before the Quarterly Association these reasonable demands were conceded. The Chairman at this stage offered an opportunity for an amendment to be moved, and, none being forthcoming, he put the resolution, which was unanimously carried amid much cheering. Mr E. R. Davies (Pwllheli) afterwards de- livered a forcible speech, in the course of which he said that the great question was whether their Connexion was to be priestly or democratic in its character (applause). Mr R. O. Williams (Liverpool) also re- ferred to the priestly spirit that was creep- ing into the Connexion. The proceedings terminated with a vote of thanks to the chairman, proposed by Mr I'eter Williams (Waenfawr), and seconded by Mr W. 0. Williams. As the meeting was breaking up a great number of people pressed on to the platform to shake hands with Mr Jones, and to heartily wish, him si.cci-ss in his strugglp for a fair trial. We unidprstand that the movement in favcur of Mr Jones is rapidly spreading throughout the whole of North Wales. A public meeting is to be organised almost immediately at Blaenau Festiniog, and it is likely tha. Wrexham, Llangefni, Corwen, and other centres will be selected for simi- iar demonstrations.
worth his liberty. Before the repeal of the Union the state of Ireland justified aM the hopes of those who granted its constitution. He reminded them that the repeal wa.s car- ried by only a few votes, and the Union that was true before became untrue after- wards. Union did not ir-iscessarily mean unity. Before they could have unity they must have people who lived to the higher 'ideals of citizenship, but these ideals of citizenship must be founded upon justice (hear, hebr). The Orangemen in Ireland had fought against several measures, and against liberty, for their own ends. A vote was taken, which resulted in the Bill being defeated.—Mr W. R. Jones (hon. secretary) stated that there was present amongst them, 31 true Liberal—Dr Evans, Brynkynallt, who, he hoped, would make a few remarks. In complying with this request, Dr Evans thanked the secretary for giving him the opportunity to be present, not to speak but to listen to the speeches, with which he was vefy much pleased. Yv itb regard to the question which had been discussed, he might &a.y that he hadi been in Ireland for a very long time, and had been frequently in touch with the Irish people. He had been stationed in Curragh Camp in Ireland for over five years, and was for two years at Dublin. He was once in the oompany of ardent Home Rulers, and he candidly asked one of them whether he wanted Home Rule. He replied, "God forbid that we should have a Parliament in Dublin. Give us a Land Bill, and we shall be happy. Things had been so managed that the Irish bad obtained more than they expected. However, he thought that in the end the Irish would have Home Rule, and the more it was put off the more the Irish would ask for. It was well-known that there W2-<> real refor- mation needed in Ireland. Unless they gave the Irish JA}me Rule, the Government would be forced to give them more.—A vote of thanks to Dr Evans, proposed by Mr Re- bert Pritchard, was carried with acclama- I tion.
