GENERAL ELECTION, 1900. TO THE ELECTORS OF THE COUNTY OF FLINT. BROTHER ELECTORS, -Colonel Howard -D has consented to allow himself to be dominated at the pending General Election as Unionist Candidate, in support of the Govern- ment of Lord Salisbury. As you are aware, he is, at present, serving his Queen and country with the Army under Lord Roberts in South Africa, and as the Election will take place somewhat earlier than expected, it is inipossible that he should address you in the Usual manner. However, as we have had recent communication with him, and are well acquainted with his political opinions on all subjects of interest, we are able to speak to you on his behalf. The very gallant fight which he made in the County at the last Election, when the majority of our opponents was reduced by more than a 1000 votes, entitles him to our full confidence as a Candidate, but at the present time lie specially deserves our most active and earnest support. The first and most important question with which the Electors have to deal is the settle- ment of the extremely important portion of our Colonial Empire which lies in South Africa. The War there has now practically come to an end, thanks to the gallant efforts of our Army, and not least to those who like Colonel Howard and so many others from our neighbourhood, have given up the peace and quiet of their home life, to encounter the hardships and dangers of War. Colonel Howard, we know, will heartily support the Government in their declared aim of securing for these countries the following conditions, so completely absent Under Boer rule :— 1.—Equal freedom for all white men. 2.—Justice and equity for the native races. 3. -Security and fair play for trade, mining, t, and agriculture. 4.-Absolute prevention of the recurrence of the troubles of the last year. Military rule must prevail for a time until the passions aroused by the War have subsided, when the same local Government, which prevails in all our Colonies, may be expected to weld the population of these provinces into a loyal, united, and prosperous people. It will be a great advantage to send to Parliament a representative who has studied this difficult problem on the spot, as Colonel Howard has done. Colonel Howard will also warmly support the Government in their general Colonial Policy, which in the past four years has done So much to bind together the mother and daughter countries in bonds of both affection and interest, a policy which has already pro- duced Confederation in Australia, and in Canada an alteration of Tariff in favour of Great Britain, whilst in South Africa it has given Lord Roberts from all parts of the Empire some of the best soldiers that he has had. At the present time we are engaged with the most troublesome and perplexing questions ill China, which will greatly tax the skill and Judgment of our statesmen, who have to exact reparation for evils in the past, and secure Prevention of their recurrence in the future, Maintaining the while an open door for our Commerce. This has to be effected without hreaking-up the Concert of the Powers engaged ith us as Allies, whose aims are not all in a Uniform direction. It is little that individuals can do in this Matter, but it is much that constituencies can 4° towards the promotion of peace and the lriterest of this country. There is during this election, by returning supporters of Lord Salisbury's Government, an opportunity of speaking directly both to the Chinese and to pur Allies, and telling them that Lord Salisbury Is the mouthpiece as well as the guide of a Suited country. Although Colonial and Foreign questions are the most urgent, domestic affairs will have their place, and here it is satisfactory to know that in Colonel Howard we have one who thinks "tir institutions should be improved and not re-made, in fact that he is prepared to act in the spirit which gave to Ireland County ^ouncils, and which has placed 'on the Statute ^ook during the last five years a number of Acts dealing with Education, Local Govern- ment, Artizans' Dwellings, Compensation for "^ccidents, the Protection of Workmen in -lines and Factories, the Safety of Railway ^ervants, and many others, which contrast IaVourably with the absolutely barren efforts of the predecessors of the present Government. In conclusion, we confidently appeal to you, brother Electors, to give, by your votes to Colonel Howard, that support to the Govern- ment, which is so important on the present °ccasion, not merely for the purpose of secur- lng for them a majority in Parliament, but that the Marquis of Salisbury may speak to the Boer, the Chinese, and all the Powers of the world as the trusted leader of a united and JeSolute Country.

j GENERAL ELECTION, 1900. TO THE ELECTORS OF FLINTSHIRE. ENTLEMEN,-Having been requested by the Liberal Association of the County of Flint to put my services again at their disposal, I am happy to offer myself once more for re-election to Parliament. I have now represented this County for more than 14 years, and have sat in Parliament nearly IS years, including the first three years when I represented the great Constituency of Liverpool, then undivided. During all that time I have been an active member of the Liberal Party, and my allegiance to Liberal principles remains unshaken. Doubt- less we are passing through a time of severe trial, but sweet are the uses of adversity," and when the tide turns, as it will do ere very long, our Party will again resume its congenial task of improving the social condition of the people by wise legislation and by peaceful and economical administration of our National affairs. We have passed through a period of incessant anxiety and great expenditure during the last five years of Tory Government, and whichever party comes into power after this Election will find itself burdened with heavy taxation and enormous military outlavs. It is fruitless now to discuss the question whether the War in South Africa could or could not have been avoided. I accept the result as final and acquiesce in the annexation of the two Boer Republics, and look forward to the time when the whole of our South African Dominions will be incorporated in a self-governing Confedera- tion like Canada or Australia. I rejoice at the patriotism shewn alike by our own citizens and by our great self-governing Colonies, and view with much satisfaction the happy inauguration of the Commonwealth of Australia. I am in favour of maintaining un- impaired the magnificent inheritance ofj the British Empire, but I feel that it entails enormous responsibilities, and am strongly opposed to further extensions. Surely the time has come to cry halt," when we possess nearly one-quarter of the habitable globe and govern one-fourth of its population I am in favour of maintaining the open door in China, and am opposed to the dismemberment of that huge Empire, but I feel strongly that the Powers must exact reparation for the shameless attacks on the Legations and for the shocking massacres of missionaries, otherwise no Europeans- will be safe in China for ages to come. One result of the war in South Africa has been to excite intense hostility to our country, especially among the great military nations of Europe. We have passed through a time of great peril, especially in the early part of this year, when nearly all our regular army and a large part of the Auxiliary forces were out of the kingdom. Whether we like it or not, we shall be forced by self-preservation to re-organise the defences of the Country, and I look to the expansion of our Militia and Volunteers as the true means of home defence. Above all things we need to regain (if it be pos- sible) international goodwill by scrupulous adher- ance to justice and avoidance of the detestable spirit of boasting and Jingoism-a spirit which has been rampant of late years, and has been fed by a large section of our Press and by some of our most prominent politicians. The country needs rest and quietness after the sacrifices it has made, and nothing but dire necessity should force it into war again. With regard to domestic questions my views are well-known. I entered Parliament as a social reformer, and have adhered to this role for 18 years. My principal aim has been to raise the condition of the people socially and morally, especially that of the poorest and most unfortunate class, and I shall continue to work for this end so long as I have a seat in Parliament. I am in favour of religious equality and of Welsh Dises- tablishment, and I regard with dread the rapid growth of a Romanising Party in the Church of England. I have sought to arouse the Protestant feeling of the country, and am glad to see a strong movement within the National Church to return to the principles of the Reformation. I have repeatedly brought before Parliament the injustice of handing over halt the Elementary Schools in the County to the virtual control of the Anglican Clergy, several of whom use these schools to stamp out the principles of the Re- formation and to Catho!icise the children of the rural districts who have no alternative schools within reach. I regard this as one of the crying evils of the day, which can only be cured by the extension of the [School Board system to the entire country. I am strongly in favour of temperance reform based upon the minority report of the Royal Commission drawn up by its respected Chair- man, Lord Peel. I am in favour of the special taxation of Ground Rents and Mining Royalties. I will support the Eight Hours (Miners) Bill and favour strongly legislation to facilitate the housing of the working classes. I support the principle of "one man, one vote." I advocate the extension of Local Government in Wales and in all parts of the United Kingdom, so as to relieve the congestion of business in the Imperial Parliament. I favour special legisla- tion to protect the farmers of Wales based upon the majority report of the Welsh Land Commis- sion. and in all respects where the condition of Wales differs from that of England I advocate separate treatment. I am entirely opposed to the policy of granting doles of money to favoured classes, whereby the present Government has added £ 3,000,000 a year to the national expenditure—equivalent to a capital sum of more than £ 100,000,000. Should the grant made under the Agricultural Rating Act be withdrawn, I advocate its being paid by the landlords, who will then share with the tenants the burden of rates. I am opposed to putting any further burden on farmers, who have suffered severely during the long period of agricultural depression, In conclusion. I advocate the extension of the Workmen's Compensation Act to all classes of injuries, including those sustained by our brave soldiers and sailors in the service of the State. If you again honour me with your confidence, I shall do my best to retain it by careful attention to your interests, and to the welfare of the great Empire of which we form part. I am, Gentlemen, Your Obedient Servant, SAMUEL SMITH. Election Agent: F. LLEWELLYN-JONES, Solicitor, 122) HOLYWELL.
FOILED AGAIN. The grocer was weighing some sugar for the woman in the dyed blue bonnet, when the man in the black frock coat and yellowish white tie, who had been standing in the door for some minutes, came inside and laid a silver Quarter on the counter. I picked it up on the floor, just at the edge of the steps," he said. It must belong to you. .L L. A quarter or a thousand dollars, sir—ic is me principle of the thing that 1 look at. I want nothing that is not mine. There is the money. The grocer laid a large forefinger on the quarter and shoved it back across the counter. "You put dot money in your pocket, mein friend," he said. But sir, you or one of your clerks must have dropped it, and it rolled over there.

While a boy of fourteen was fishing for trout in a deep brook, a stout darky commenced teasing the lad by throwing mud at him. The boy, although little, was smart, and, swinging the butt of his fishing-rod round, Cuffee found himself in deep water, struggling in which our friend left him, and ran home. His dirty appearance attracted the attention of his mother, who was highly indignant to think that her son had been so treated by a black boy, and demanded "Did you brook the outrage? "No, mother," he replied; "but I brooked the iiigger." V FOR EXTERNAL USE. Customer: "I want 10 cents' worth of zinc for sistêr." Drug Clerk: What kind of zinc? There are about forty kinds.

One of the surprizes of the Liverpool National Eisteddfod was the fact that there was but one competitor for a prize of £50 for the chief essay on the life and -work of Thomas Ellis, M.P. No man in Wales has been boomed more than Tom Ellis, and yet but one person can be induced by a prize of £ 50 to perpetuate his "life and work," and even that was not deemed worthy of t.le money lloddster: "I say, old fellow, can you lend" us a pair of scales for n. few days ? Married Chum: "We have a pair, but I'm sorry to say they are out of order; they weigh heavy." lioddster (excitedly): "The very thing; we're going fishing." An Irishman once worked all day on the promise of getting a glass of grog. At night the employer brought out the grog to him, and the Irishman tasted it, and said "Winch did you put in first—the whisKy or the water?" "011," said the employer, the whisky."

CYCLING NEWS & GOSSIP. II It is really wonderful that there are so many men who show themselves blind to the interests not only of themselves but of the snort at large, by scorching through parks and grounds in regard to the use of which special permission has been given. A burst of speed upon an unfrequented highway is all very well, but when a man puts his head down and scorches through a lovely park which has been thrown open to the une of cyclists by its owner simply that they may en joy the good road and beautiful scenery, one's feelings may reasonably get somewhat ruffled. On some park gates there are fixed notices which should make an ordinary cyclist almost ashamed of his sport- y notice of warning to scorchers and such-iike. Of course there are black sheep in every flock, but these men who abuse privileges and bring the sport into disrepute are a pest in the society of cyclists. A case in point is that which a lady of title has, in self-defence, had to put down patches of stones on a road leading through her park in North Lon- don, but which road she can apparently only close after certain hours. Cyclists have from time to time made complaint to the N.C.U. in regard to the bad cycling surface in this particular stretch, and the Union in due course took the matter up, only to find that the action of the lady in question was quite justified as the only practical means by which the road could be saved from conversion into a race ground. Of course the innocent have to suffer for the guilty and get through as best they can. There was a meeting of giants at the Pare de Princes track, Paris, on a recent Sunday, when some of the finest professional racing men assembled to compete in a 100 kilometres paced rnce. Amongst the men were Huret, who figured prominently as the recent winner of the 100 kilo- metres world's championship; A. E. Walters, holder of the 24 hours world's record; E. Taylor, ex-holder of the hour world's record, and A. A. Chase, the holder of the world's mile record from ,T standing start, and the British hour record. JInret was the fancied man, but that grand rider Walters, on his Dunlop tyred safety, rode a most careful race and ultimately won amidst great excitement. Judging by the "list of stolen machines" which weekly appears in the columns of the trade papers and similar announcements, bicycle steal- ing seems to be on the increase. This new form of thieving is hardly likely to diminish until the task of disposing of them is made more difficult, and greater care is taken by cyclists themselves in leaving the machines unattended, or insecure out- side shops, inns, private houses etc. No matter how short a time a call mav take, the machine should never be left to the mercy of the cycling thief, for if such a one happens to be on the spot and on the look-out, a few moments suffice for him to make up his mind, mount, and be out of sight, and—what is more—practically secure from pur- suit. Steal on, steal on, cry the members of the cycle- pilfcring fraternity and steal on they do From north to south and east to west come complaints of missing cycles. In this, cyclists themselves are partly to blame for leaving their machines unat- tended by the kerb or places of call, thus practi- cally inviting the miscreant to proceed further in his pernicious profession. When brought to book the cycle thief receives no mercy from the bench, many of the recent sentences given being severe enough, one would have imagined, to act as a warning to restrain others from continuing the practice; but on it goes, and the police seem powerless to stay its progress. There must be many places where thieves may easily dispose of their stolen property, and here it is that the police ought to seek. No doubt many dishonest agents, finding their legitimate business unprofitable, have resorted to buying these machines at a very low figure, altering the frames beyond recognition, and selling them at a considerable profit. Very soon the financial year of many cycle firms will be drawing to a close and managers will l,e concocting the balance sheets so that they may appear favourable in the eyes of their shareholders; but what ingenuity may be exercised in this res- pect will he of little avail. The worm of bad trade will be found winding its way throughout the figures, and shareholders will receive small, if any dividends. This unfortunate state of affairs is ascribed to keen competition, low prices all round, a bad season, and the universal scape-goat, the war. This may be true to a certain extent, but the real cause of the evil may be traced to the phenomenal growth of the cycle trade some six or seven years ago. It may be likened to a grape vine throwing its branches out in all directions with thousands of bunches of grapes as the grapes grow the root proves too weak to withstand the strain, and bunch after bunch fall off until only those which the vine can properly yield remain, but these too will have suffered though they reach maturity. There are too many members of the cycle trade, and until some fall out it will never be in a nourishing condition. Harrv Green, of the Silverdale C.C., well known as one of the best unpaced riders of the day, has, on his Dunlop tyred safety made another success- ful attempt on a place-to-p]ace record, viz., London to Liverpool, which he covered unpaced. in exactly 11 hours. The distance is 202 miles, and it will be seen that Greeu must have moved along at a tidy pace, more especially as the pre- vious record was made with the assistance of motor pacing by W. J. Neason, who occupied 11 hours 43 mins. on the journey. London has a new central electric railway, which runs between Shepherd's Bush, on the out- skirts of the city, and the Bank of England, and cyclists are availing themselves of the new system to a very considerably growing extent. Men who live out in the country beyond Shepherd's Bush now cycle to the station, leave their machines in the cloak room, and go by train up to the city, thus having a comtortaoie, eaSyi ând quick ride over a stretch which was before fraught with considerable danger and discomfort.. It is said that the average number of cycles left at the Shep- herd's Bush station totals no less than fifty, and no doubt when the scheme is raore known the • railway company will have to provide fuller accommodation. Indeed it will be distinctly to their interests to encourage the new departure. )
