Danbigh Young Liberal League. MEETING AT THE DRILL HALL. A mating under the suppc!s of the Young Liberal League was held at the D.id Hill on Monday evening, when the p^inc'pil speakers were Mr Ciradcc Bees, the L'baral candidate for the Denbigh B,r-ugbo, acd Mr T W Dobson, t'ie prospec ive L;.b3ral candidate for Plymouth. Air A 0 Lvins, the president of the League, occupied lh1 chair, and was supported on the platform by Miss Gee, Mrs J R Evans, Mrs Morris Davies, M'a J Ellis Jones, Councillor J R O.ven, Mr J HolLnd Robarts, Mr William Parry, J.P., &nd Mr E J Roberts. The Chairman, in opening the pro- ceedidge, said it was evident from what was transpiring these days that there was ia the United Kingdom one law for the rich and other for the poDr. One law for the officers of the Army and another for the rank and file. He, for one, would not submit to being ruled by a certain section of tfficrra who were disloyal to their Kiog and country (hear, hear). Thity_ heard people talking nowadsys ab-mt the failure of the voluntary principle in matters of religion. That might bs so in England bat it was not so in Wales. They bad a Nonconformist Chapel not so far away where X800 a year was raised in voluntary contributions, and, as far as Denbigh was concerned, that went to prove that the voluntary principle was not a failcrj. Havcg referred to the Nonconformist petition against the Welsh Church Bill, the Chairman said he fully believed that the disestablishment of ten Welsh Church would soon become law. Weles hr-d clamoured for this great reform for many long years, and they were at last acout to realize their aspiiations (applauEe). Tbe meeting was then addressed by Mr T W Dcbson, who devoted his remarks to certain measures passed by the present Liberal Government, end emphasizad the good results wbicb, he said, bad been attained by the Insurance Act, and the Government's action in promoting the public health of the country. He also dealt with the land question. r Mr Caradcc Raes, who was given a very cordial reception, referred in eulogis- tic terms to the membars of the cabinet, and said that Mr Asqatith was a worthy I successor to Sir Henry Campbell-Binner- man and Mr Gladstone. Dealing with the Home Rule and Welsh Church questiois he said that although a crisis seemed iminent he maintained that the people after all were the rulers, and not a jmta of officers in the army. Ireland had been clamouring for Home Rule for msny years. Wales had also been asking for religious equality. He was one of those who believed that a general election was overdue, but he did not blame the Government for this. They had sacrificed a grest deal of time to PH!S two great measures- nom-ly, Home Rule for Ire- land and Welsh Dieendowment. Now they were near the goal, it was net for the Government to endager these great measures, and therefore they were justified in remaining in office until they had realised the fruits of their great labours (applause). What be did blame was the House of Lords in holding up measures for which the people of this country had | loudly called for. Had the Home Role I Bill been passed three yeara ago, the the Welsh Disestablishment Bill two years ago, and the plural voting bill twelve months ago, the Tories would now have what they are at present erying for, namely a general election (applause). The Rev J Kelley, Wesleyan minieter, Abergele, also addressed the meeting on the Welsh Church question. A vote of confidence was pasred with the Government, and a vote of thanks was accorded the speakers on the motion of Mr Holland Robertp, Eeeond(d by I Councillor J R Owen.

THROUGH TUNIS BY CAR. Here, in ttoried Carthage, we must visit the museum to pay homage to fehab mirvtl of mazveli the statue, in the Hall of the White Fathire-, of the Pdestess Arisatbaal in her robe of vulture's wing?, a sight alone which repays the long j urcey ti Tunis. Then, leaving the museum, leb us rait a long while to admire the Bay cf Carthage stretched out at our feet. ° When ab las; wi must tear outfelves away, give a turn to our modern starting-handle and run down the august h it where once on a time Uami'car's ohariot performed its evolu- tiont-, we feel almost ashamed that the sound cf our motor Lh^uld trouble the eternal dream of the sacred ashes, and that our petrol fumes should pollute this air which h-xa known the smoke of tsaer fice. Bat what a joy and delight it is when we reach the road at the foob ot the lIiJJ, to speed along beneath the eucalyptus trees which shade us all through the Puaio isthmus. And the surface of the highway has no cl neealcd enemies, nothing to haiass your Micheiia tyres in the performance of their duty, We are at the Gculette, where the Jews found a refuge when they were expelled from Spain, and where tc-day their women still wear the sorceress costume imposed upon thsm by Isabella the C&tholio, to distinguioh them from the Christion3. We crois to the other bank on a fafry-boat ttwad by a donkey or camel and land where Rados, the Romau Maxoule, raises its white cupolas and its golden miilare. We may even go as far as Hemmanlif, a sort of African Dinard, where there are tennis- I I courts, and go>i-nna8, tea-oathing, theatnes, j ar.d a very comfortable French restaurant, before returning to Turns after a day well occupifd. ] Denbighshire ogcnts P.:e-,oea' Motor end Cycle Gavagr, Market-street, Atergele, H D D Walthall and Co, Motor Garage, Greenfield- road, Colwyo B y.
