Mr. William George on the Political Situation. Mr. William^George, brother of the Chan- cellor of the ivxchequer, who presided at a Liberal meeting at Criccieth cn Friday night, said this was a bad time to hold a political meeting. Some men whom they would like to hear dared not say anything—(laughter) because they knew too much others, like himself, dared not say anything because they knew too little and might cause mischief by talking too mnch-(laughter) ;-and so there was a sort of conspiracy of silence going on all round about a subject which had been uppermost in the minds of all of them since they met in that hall last at the General Election. Most of them perhaps were long- ing for the time when the period of restraint was over one way or the other. In fact, they were feeling like the Scotch farmer on bright Sunday during a bad harvest—long- ing for Monday morning. (Laughter.) That would come no doubt in due time, and mean- while there were several matters pertaining to the country at large as well as to Wales in particular which they could openly dis- cuss. One of the most notable features in the programme of the Government was the social legislation they were promoting. It was they who had introduced the old-age pensioner—(applause),—who had come to stay and whose appearance in reality was that of a messenger telling of the good times that were coming for the toiling massea throughout the land, for whose benefit they now saw a scheme of insurance looming ml large in the horizon. It looked as if the people were realising where their true in- terests lay. Both South Shields and Wal- thamstow spoke in this strain. (Cheers.) There was no doubt if the working classes remained steady and true to themselves a few years would effect a revolution in their status and prospects, and Wales would share in the benefits of this new conception of bread-and-butter politics," whilst at the same time preserving higher ideals and working steadily for their realisation. (Cheers.) An address by Mr. Edgar Jones, M.P., followed. <
