A Conservative Candidate for the Carnarvon Boroughs. On Saturday, December 29th, at a crowded meeting held at the Assembly-rooms of the Carnarvon Conservative Workingmen's Club, when delegates and other representatives from each of the six Boroughs attended to meet Mr Ellis Nanney, and to learn from him his decision with regard to his acceptance or otherwise of the unanimous invitation given him to do battle for the cause in the Carnarvon Boroughs at the forth- coming election, Mr Issard Davies presided and those present included the following from the easternmost portion of the constituency:—Major the Hon. H. Lloyd Mostyn, J.P.; Councillors Charles Drover and Arthur W. Jones; and Messrs J. E. Fincham, J. W. Mason, and Joseph Williams. The Chairman, in opening the proceedings, said that the result of the Selection Committee's work was that each of the six contributive Boroughs had invited and had promised unanimous support to Mr Ellis Nanney [Cheers], and he need not add how joyous the Committee were to receive such an intimation from the various districts. I Hear, hear]. He desired now to call upon Mr George Owen (Secretary of the Carnarvonshire Constitu- tional Association) to read the replies received from the Borough Associations. Mr George Owen then read communications from the Secretaries of the Associations at Nevin, Pwllheli, Bangor, Criccieth, Carnarvon, and Conway, in which it was stated that resolutions had been unanimously adopted cordially inviting Mr Nanney, and promising his candidature the most loyal support. Letters of apology for non- attendance at this meeting were also read from Lord Mostyn, the Hon. C. H. Wynn (Rug), the Mayor of Con wav (Councillor R. Arthur-Prichard), Mr R. H. Prichard (Bangor), Councillor Wallace (Conway), Mr Kneeshaw, Mr Jonathan (Car- narvon), &c. Mr Assheton Smith moved, and Sir Llewelyn Turner seconded, the following resolution :— That this meeting begs of Mr Ellis Nanney to come forward as the Conservative candidate for the Carnarvon Boroughs at the coming election, and that we all pledge ourselves individually and collectively to do our very utmost to secure his return." [Loud cheers]. Mr Richard Morgan (Carnarvon) thought that he could pledge the working classes to support Mr Nanney's candidature to the utmost. Mr J. W. Mason (Conway) supported the resolu- tion, and expressed his gladness that in Mr Nanney they had a gentleman who understood the Welsh language, which was an essential qualification in any candidate seeking to represent the Carnarvon Boroughs. He (the speaker) had not all his life been a Conservative, but he should consider it a disgrace if he allied himself with the Radical Party of the present day. [Hear, hear]. He urged that they should all give their unani- mous and energetic support to Mr Nanney's candidature. [Hear, hear]. The resolution having also been supported by Alderman Richard Thomas (Carnarvon), Mr Hughes (Nevin), Dr Grey Edwards (Bangor), Mr Cledwyn Owen (Pwllheli), and Mr W. Humphreys (Aberkin), the meeting was addressed briefly by Professor Alfred Hughes, the Unionist candidate for the Arvon Division of the county, who assured them that no one rejoiced more than himself at the prospect of Mr Nanney's candidature. He hoped that the electors of the Boroughs would, in the proper time, unite with the electors of the Arvon Division, and, if they could but return both candidates in double harness, they would drive a very smart tandem to the House of Commons. [Laughter and cheers]. It ought to be felt an honour by any man to take part in the political life of Carnarvonshire. Both the Carnarvon Boroughs and the Arvon Division were in a district which formed the stronghold of the old independent princes of Wales. Although it could not be said that there would be fighting for the cause of the freedom of Wales at the present time, still they were fighting the cause of the freedom of Wales from false principles. [Loud cheers). The resolution was put to the meeting and carried with the utmost enthusiasm. Mr H. J. Ellis Nanney, who was received with cheers, again and again renewed, said that it gave him very great pleasure to be present at such an influential meeting. Before proceeding further he wished to say that he came forward on the present occasion as nobody's nominee. [Cheers]. He did not want anybody to go between him and the electors [Hear, hear], because in coming forward he believed that he was simply doing his duty to his Queen and country. [Cheers]. His friends in that constituency knew that he was not one given to shirking his duty once it was shown him what that duty was. The country was now passing through a great crisis, and as he was not a person who could stand quietly aside, he un- reservedly and with great pleasure placed himself at the service of the Party. [Loud and long continued cheering]. He unreservedly, and with pleasure, placed himself at their service in this matter. [Cheers]. He was not new to them, and they would remember how, some four and a half years ago, at very short notice, upon the death of the late Mr Edmund Swetenham, he contested the Boroughs, with the result that he nearly gained a victory. He wished to come forward as their candidate, and it would be a pleasure to him to give general support to the Conservative and Unionist Government. [Cheers]. At the same he reserved to himself the independence to support any measure which he might think would be good for the country and people in general. [Hear, hear]. After dealing at some length with the threatened attack on the House of Lords, the speaker advised the democracy to well consider before they consented to tamper with such :a Constitution as that of Britain, and so interfere with the very foundation of the freedom and prosperity of the country. Proceeding, Mr Nanney said that he was opposed to Home-rule for Ireland [Cheers], but thought it just that Ireland, being a part of the United Kingdom, should have much the same power of local government as England and Wales enjoyed. [Applause]. He was also opposed to Disestab- lishment and Disendowment, and he would continue to support the Church as long as she ministered faithfully to the requirements of the rich and poor. [Applause]. He thorougly wished God-speed to all denominations who were striving to spread the light of the Gospel, and who were doing so much to raise the tone of morality throughout the nation. [Cheers]. He was in favour of religion being taught in the Schools. In these days of competition and high pressure, surely young people did not require less religion than they formerly did to enable them successfully to battle against the temptations which beset them on their journey through life. [Hear, hear]. It was his opinion that Voluntary Schools should be encouraged and helped, and not thwarted as they sometimes were from head quarters. Another subject in which he was interested, was that of the maintenance of old people. He considered that people of sixty-five or so, who had led respectable lives and had contributed a fair sum, say one-half of the amount required, to meet emergencies, should be treated with" every consideration and should not be housed with characters of another description. [Hear, hear]. They might have a separate wing of a building, and might be allowed as much liberty as was consistent with discipline. But he would not support any measure that wonld detract from self-respect and self-reliance, which was one of the finest characteristics of the Welsh nation. [Cheers]. Much had also been done, particularly in large towns, to improve the dwellings of the working classes, through the instrumentality of the Artisans Dwellings Act. He hoped that legislators would continue to work in that direction and extend the provisions of the Act if necessary. As already stated, he would support the Unionist Government which had passed such excellent and useful measures when last in power, and who would legislate again for the general welfare and happiness of all classes and for the greatness and prosperity of this great Empire. [Cheers]. Lord Penrhyn, who moved a vote of thanks to the chairman, expressed the extreme pleasure it gave him to beat the meeting, and to understand that Mr Nanney was prepared to come forward as the candidate of the Party. [Cheers]. He felt sure that it was the feeling of everybody present, and of the country generally, that it was necessary to bring about such a state of things as would ensure greater prosperity and lower rates. [Cheers]. But so long as they had a Liberal Government of the sort now in power there would be no chance of arriving at that state of things. It was, therefore, with the object of improving the condition of the country that all earnest, thought- ful business men were setting themselves to work in order to place in power a superior Govern- ment. [Cheers]. The motion was seconded by Mr Lloyd Hughes (President of the Carnarvon Club), supported by Dr Jones Morris (Portmadoc) and unanimously passed, the proceedings being closed with the singing of God Save the Queen."
Conway Board of Guardians. At the newly-elected Conway Board of Guar- dains' first meeting, on Friday, December 28th, at Plas Bach, Conway, there were present the elected representatives of all the parishes except three, namely, Llanelian (where no valid nomin- ation was received), Eirias, and Gyffin. Pending the election of Chairman, the Returning Officer (Mr T. E. Parry, Clerk to the Board) was elected chairman for that meeting, and informed the Board that they could (if they pleased) elect from outside a Chairman, a Vice-Chairman, and two additional members. County-Councillor John Porter said that he had the greatest possible pleasure in proposing that their formerChairman (Rev W. Venables-Williams) be elected Chairman of the new Board. The speaker had been on the Board for many years, and had always admired the great trouble and pains their Chairman took to see that the business of the Board was conducted in a fair and proper manner. He seemed to know the circumstances of every pauper in the Union and the BoArd could not possibly get a better Chairman. Mr Allanson Picton, J.P., as a comparative new-comer, had pleasure in seconding the pro- posal. From what he had heard, Mr Venables- Williams was kind to the deserving poor, but to those who tried to impose on the Board he was as hard as nails." The resolution was carried by acclamation. The reverend gentleman was not present to acknowledge the honour conferred upon him, he being one of the former ex-officio members of the Board. On the motion of Mr John Roberts, seconded by Mr G. O. Jones, the Board elected as their Vice-Chairman County-Councillor John Davies, Senior Vice-Chairman of the old Board, who, responding, said that it would be his pleasure to assist in carrying-on the business of the Board. Mr W. F. Jones moved, and County-Councillor Hugh Owen seconded, a proposition to appoint Councillor Morris Jones, J.P., C.C., one of two additional members the Board were empowered to co-optate. Mr Allanson Picton protested against over- riding the decision of the ratepayers by electing additional guardians from outside, when there were so manv experienced Guardians re-elected. He objected to the appointment of additional Guardians except as introducing a deficient element into the Board, say two ladies. [Hear, hear.]. The Rev David Davies thought that the appointment might well be postponed. Mr John Roberts said that he quite agreed with postponing the question, as the question of additional members according to population, was a future question for the Board. Alderman Hugh Hughes supported the election of Councillor Morris Jones, who was a gentleman well-versed in Poor-Law business. Eventually, on the question being put, Councillor Morris Jones was declared elected by nine votes to six. County-Councillor John Porter moved, and Mr W. F. Jones seconded, the co-optation of County- Alderman Edward Jones (the former Guardian for Conway). Mr Picton again protested, thinking it unfair to bring in three non-elected Guardians, thus over- riding the voice of the people. t- Mr Caraher also protested against this appoint- ment, but on a different ground. Llandudno, according to its rateable value, was the most under-represented portion of the Union, and if would be grossly unfair therefore to appoint both additional Guardians from Conway. He therefore moved, as an amendment, the co-optation ot County-Alderman Elias Jones, J.P., who was resident in Llandudno. Mr G. O. Jones supported the appointment 01 Alderman Edward Jones, and the Clerk, replymg to a question, said that Alderman Elias Jones had not actually served on the old Board. Eventually the matter was postponed, on the motion of Mr John Roberts, seconded by Mr Picton. The Committees were then appointed as 'follow:- Assessment Committee (11 members): Rev W- Venables-Williams County-Councillors John Davies, John Porter, and Hugh Owen Alderman Hugh Hughes and Messrs John Roberts, Richard Williams, Hugh Caraher, W. F. Jones, Daniel Phillips, and David Jones. Finance and Workhouse- Visiting Committee (9): The Chairman and Vice-Chairman, ex-officios, Councillor Morris Jones; Rev David Davies Alderman Hugh Hughes and Messrs J. A. Picton, G. O. Jones, and Hugh Caraher. School Attendance Committee (g) The Guardians for those parishes under this Committee's juris- diction, namely, Dwygyfylchi, Llangelynin, Llech- wedd, Llysfaen, Llanelian, Llansantffraid, Pen- rhyn, and Eglwsrhos. While the Finance and Workliouse-visiting Committee was in course of being selected, Alderman Hugh Hughes wanted to know whether ladies from outside the Board could be put on the Visiting Committee. The Clerk said that a Ladies Visiting Committee could be appointed, but it should be after notice of motion. Mr Picton supported the suggestion, and a member said that ladies were now in the habit o visiting the House, whereupon Alderman Hugh Hughes said that he wanted ladies to visit the House as a matter of right, and not as a matter of favour, and he should therefore give notice o motion as to appointing a Ladies Visiting Com- mittee, which should be requested to report to the Board. Mr John Roberts proposed a vote of thanks to the Returning Officer for his able services in that capacity, and also in the duties appertaining the Board's Clerkship throughout a period ° rIlore than a quarter ofa century. The Chairman* had he been present, would have probably tolo the Board that Mr T. E. Parry was the very best Clerk possible. Mr Fincham seconded the vote, which was carried by acclamation, and Mr T. E. Parry' responding, hoped that he would get on as wel with the new Board as with its predecessors.
Llechwedd Rural District Council- On Friday, December 28th, at the first meeting' at Plas Bach, Conway, of the Rural Districf Council of Llechwedd, all the elected Councillor,, of the Districts of Llechwedd and Glan-conway being present, the Returning Officer (Mr T. Parry), who presided, announced that the Loca Government Board had made an Order, merging the Glanconway Rural District in that of Lley^ wedd, subject, however, to the finances being kept separately. The Council adjourned 2.0 p.m.on January 4th, when the Counctllor, meet for the election of Chairman.
