The Duke of Westminster, presiding on Monday night at a Unionist demon- stration at Chester, observed that, con- cerning the importance of the navy and the unity of the empire, there was noth- ing in the Chancellor oi the Excheqer's recent speeches which led them to believe that he realised their importance. Was there in Mr Lloyd George's record, par- ticularly during the Boer War, anything to show that he cared in any small degree for the vital questions such as the navy and other important matters. In that war Mr Lloyd George said that money had gone in lyddire shells and in burning homes in South Africa. The Chancellor of the Exchequer had said many bitter things about him, but his Grace did not wish to retaliate. "LET WALES LEAD THE VAN." Tqe "Genedl Gymreig" (Carnarvon) publishes a message from Mr Lloyd George to his fellow countrymen intended for the election war cry. The foHowing is a translatic,n- We are on the eve of the most im- portant battle for the British and Irish democracy since the days of the Reform Bill, and unquestionably the most im- portant Wales has ever seen. The House ot Lords blocks every pathway between Wales and its National aspirations—re- ligious liberty, control of the people's schools, temperance, land reform, and local self-government. The Lords ob- struct every legislative proposals deemed by Welsh reformers to be essential for the country's progress. Every true Welshman should arm and fight with all his forefathers' spirit.
