FLINTSHIRE CONTESTS. UNIONISTS CONFIDENT OF VICTORY. The "Chester Courant" states:—Some- thing in the nature of a political transforma- tiou is being effected in Flintshire, wbere Mr Lloyd Price and the representatives of Colonel Howard are wooing the con- stituencies with an ardour worthy of the great cause they represent, Without a doubt the Unionists are making headway, both in Flint Boroughs and Flint County, reports of a most encouraging character coming from all parts of the constituencies. For his part, Mr Lloyd Price has thrown himself into the contest with remarkable spirit. His energy is surprising, and with such a worthy champion, it is no wonder that his workers are also engaging in the fight with marked keeness, and that as a result Radical prejudice is being overcome and erstwhile supporters of Mr Herbert Lewis are seceding in considerable numbers to th.1 Unionist ranks. As an instance if the piogiess which Mr Lloyd Price is making in the boroughs, we may mention that at Flint, where there is an extraordinary strong feeling in favour of Mr Price, a meeting of workers was so enormously attended that, when the canvass was appor- tioned, each canvasser had only six or seven houses to call at. "I am confident of success," were the words Mr Price used to our representative on Monday evening in the course of a conversation as to his prospects, and we believe he had good grounds for holding such an opinion. His activity certainly indicates a determination to carry the Unionist flag to victory. And while the electors of the Boroughs will have an opportueity of deciding whether a Pro- Boer or a Imperialist shall represent them in the new Parliament, those of the countv will have the choice betwean one who is serving his country in South Africa at the head of a contingent of gallant sons of Wales, and one who is allied to a party which can boast of neither a leader nor a policy. The selection should not be difficult to make.
