In view of the disturbances which took place in the town of Carnarvon on the poll- ing day for the Boroughs at the last election the Mayor of the town, who is the returning officer, caused the following appeal to be addressed to all places of worship in the im. mediate district on Sunday:—"You are aware that a political contest is in progress in the Carnarvon Boroughs, the result of which will be declared next Saturday. On a similar occasion in January last there was some disturbance in this town, accompanied by damage to property, and whatever might have been the cause of those unfortunate occrrences it is generally agreed that the conduct of those responsible for the disorder was unwise. My object in directing this letter to you is to ask you in your congrega- tion on Sunday night to earnestly request all who may come to the town on the polling day to behave with propriety so as not to cause offence to anybody. This is surely not to much to ask for the sake of the honour and the good name of our country and nation." MR. LLOYD GEORGE'S MEETINGS. Among the speakers who will support the candidature of Mr. Lloyd George in one or other of the Carnarvon constituent boroughs during this week axe Lord Morley, Dr. Macnamara, Mr. Masterman, Mr. Ellis J. Griffith, Mr. Sylvester Home, and Mr. Her- bert Lewis. Mrs. Lloyd C'eorge, accompanied by the Rev. John Williams, Brynsiencyn, visited each of the constituent boroughs on Satur- day. Mr. Austin Jones also went round the con- stituency, paying a short visit to the Bangor football ground, where a match between Pwllheli and Bangor Reserves was in pro- gress. There was no demonstration. The Liberals are determined to give Mr. Lloyd George an increased majority. C, WOMEN'S SUFFRAGE. A number of Mr. Lloyd George's constitu- ents, who had formed a Men's Society for Women's Suffrage, wrote to the Chancellor and his opponent for their views on the Conciliation Bill in order to guide them in their voting, and at a meeting of the Society at Bangor on Saturday the following telegram was read from Mr. Lloyd George" Have nothing to add to lengthy exposition of my views given to deputation of women of my constituency at Criccieth in September Mr. Austin Jones, the Chancellor's oppon- ent, wrote:—"The divergence of opinion that prevails on any suffragists unfortunately renders the drafting of the Conciliation Bill a very difficult task, and it is undeniable that the present bill is not perfect, and I know its promoters welcome amendments to it. After these amendments I have no doubt i* will be so far perfect as to make me give it my cordial support. The Society decided to take no action.
