Notes and News. NEXT Tuesday a new Welsh Liberal Association will be established in London. ITS first work will be to press for the Disestablishment of the Church in Wales. WELSH Liberal M.P.'s are becoming active, and several political meetings have been held in Wales during the past fortnight. NORTH WALES Conservatives are unusu- ally active during these days, and candidates are being selected for every constituency. MR. CLEMENT EDWARDS believes that Dis- establishment is more important for Wales than even the present democratic Budget. WILL Mr. Lloyd George have to amend his Budget proposals, and be forced to "climb down" at the bidding of "The Trade ? We think not. Up Lords and at 'em," is the despairing cry of the Conservative press, but we think that the Upper House will avoid such a con- flict at present.' THE millionaires and the landed gentry were very loud in their demand for more Dreadnoughts," but it is somewhat un- patriotic on their part to allow the poor classes to pay for such luxuries. THE Duke of Norfolk is a typical speci- men of the English "patriot." He is the proud- owner of a rare painting by Holbein, yet he is willing that such an art treasure should be lost to England because a wealthy American has offered a ridiculously high price for it. THE famous steamer Mauretania" has just completed a record journey across the Atlantic. On this voyage she completed the passage in 4 days 17 hours. Captain Pritchard will deserve another Welsh dinner after such a performance SWANSEA Liberals prefer money to brains. Its selection of a wealthy Englishman as a candidate, in succession to Sir George Newnes, should be strenuously opposed by Welsh nationalists. It is to be hoped that the Labour Party will come to the rescue and select a local man who will uphold the dignity of Wales. MR H. G. WELLS has not a high opinion of Mr. Grayson (the Socialist). In the Christian Commonwealth, this week, he writes I do not believe in Grayson. I think he has all the levity of youth added to an instability that will last his lifetime. He may do all sorts of things in the world, but practically he will never be anything but a nuisance to his own side." THE Daily Chronicle says that it cannot be said that all Mr. Lloyd George's interviews put together have contained very much information. He has combined a large number of conversations with a severely limited amount of news. He has told nobody anything of much importance, except that he is going to say something at some other time. AFTER trouncing Mr. Lloyd George severely for several days, because he is the author of the present iniquitous and penal" Budget, the Daily Telegraph appears to have made a discovery, now that the public are beginning to applaud the Chancellor for his bold measure. It is too much for this Fleet Street organ to have to praise this young Welshman, so it hints this week that he is not the author after all Statesmen can never forget the interests of their party as a whole, and are bound to do a certain amount of work for it. They rarely remain long enough in office to get an independent and complete mastery of the business over which they are supposed to preside and the per- manent officials often do the greater part of the work, and furnish the larger number of the ideas, even in connection with measures for which their chiefs receive the fame and blame." ———— MORE Welsh is spoken at Newport, in comparison to the population of the town, than at Cardiff. Of the three big towns of South Wales, Swansea leads in the amount of Welsh speaking, but Newport comes second. At Newport market, on Saturdays, a considerable amount of Welsh can be heard, the speakers being chiefly farmers from the Henllys district-one of the few places in Gwent where the Cambrian tongue is still the language of a great many homes. Moreover, Newport has a particularly vigor- ous Welsh Society, and has three well- attended Welsh chapels. IN the course of a recent speech, at Llan- dudno, Lord Stalbridge said that every facility was given for driving, walking and motoring, and Llandudno, he believed, had got every means of locomotion except the aeroplane (laughter).
