P Morris presided over a large gathering at the Ship Cafe on Friday evening, when excellent papers were read by Messrs Thos. Owen Roberts, Bodgwilym; T. Llewelyn Williams, Yale View and Win Davies, Brynffynon. The Chairman said he was prouder of the honour of occupying the chair that evening than he would have been of listening to a speech by Sir Herbert Roberts even. And for this reason, that three young members of the club were for the first time in their lives going to speak in public. (Applause). His advice to young men was, Don't be dictated to by anyone on religious, political, or social matters. Read, study, and think for your- selves. Train your memory to such an extent that you will always have the right answer ready when a question is asked you. Stick to your principles and hang the con- sequences. (Applause). The young men then proceeded with the reading of their papers. Mr T. O. Roberts took "The abuse of British politics." Candidly, I have never listened to anything finer than this by a young man of twenty. With the Editor's permission the paper will find its way to the columns of the Weekly Nervs one of these next days. Mr Thos. Llewellyn Williams's paper was a humorous one on Law Mr Bullem v. Boatem," while Mr William Davies's paper on "The culture of the affections" was extremely interesting. Others who spoke were the Rev J. H. Davies, Rev David Morris, and Mr David Thomas. On the motion of the Rev J. H. Davies, seconded by Mr J. R. Ellis, the three budding geniuses were accorded a hearty vote of thanks.
