Mr. Rhys at Brynteg. Mr. David Rhys, the Conservative can- didate for East Denbighshire, addressed a meeting at Brynteg, on Thursday night. A large par t of the audience was hostile, and he was frequently interrupted. At the close of his speech numerous questions were put to him. In reply to the question, If we adopted tariff reform, could this country raise the extra revenue required ?" Mr. Rhys s^id, I don't see why it could not. If the imports of Germany are two-thirds of the imports of this country, and Germany I derives revenue 37 millions, we only want 16 millions." A Voice Don't you think it possible for the Budget to raise the 16 millions ? Mr. Rhys I think it perfectly possible. The Voice: Well, let us have it then. (Cheers.) When asked what the royalties in Germany amounted to, as compared with those paid in this country, Mr. Rhys was unable to say. "Well, I can tell you," responded the questioner, It is is. 8d., as compared with 6s. 8d. in this country."
