Mr. Sam Thompson at Glan Conway.


Mr. Sam Thompson at Glan Conway. THE CANDIDATE FREELY HECKLED. A meeting in support of the candidature of Mr Sam Thompson was held at the National Schools last night (Wednesday). Mr C. B. Jones-Mortimer, J.P., in the chair. lhere was a large attendance of men, and two ladies, and contingents had arrived from Llandudno Junction, Conway and Colwyn Bay. Mr Thompson was supported by Mr David Rhys, the candidate for East Denbighshire. Mr Thompson spoke in English and Welsh for long over an hour upon current topics, the Lords and the Budget being the chief. He was continually heckled. Upon the party entering the room, three cheers were raised for Lloyd George. Mr. Thomas Owen, Llandudno Junction, and Mr Robert Jones (son of Councillor Robt. Jones), Conway, repeatedly brought the candidate to book, and created much enthusiasm amongst their followers, who were more than three parts of the audience. When the candidate tried to explain Liberalism he was asked "What does Toryism mean?" Much amusement was caused when the candidate amidst a volley of heckling and demands for answers stated that he had only got one mouth, and the rejoinder of Mr rlom Owen was "We give you credit for that." A Tariff Reformer was seated amongst the hecklers, and in a voice of despair he cried, Oh you worry me." When the candidate called for water to drink, someone suggested beer, and when Mr Thompson lifted the glass of water to his lips a stentorian voice invited Mr Thompson to drink the health of Mr Lloyd George, and the candidate, amidst much mirth, drank the health of everybody, including the Chancellor. The interruptions were innumer- able, but they were mostly made in good spirit. 8
