«. Mr. A. T. WRIGHT will have a lively time of it at the next meeting of the Cheshire County Council. In our issue to-day Mr. JOHN THOMPSON follows up the attack opened by the Rev. C. WOLLEY DOD in last week's Courant on the member for New Brighton in respect to his extraordinary speech at Preston on the Sea Fisheries question. Mr. THOMPSON states that Mr. WRIGHT misled the Council as to the inten- tions of Lancashire, when the question of amalgamation of sea fisheries was under con- sideration last November. According to Mr. WRIGHT, Lancashire had then no idea of annex- ing the Dee estuary, and with singular inconsistency, in the following February he attempted to cripple the Dee Fishery Board by withholding the usual grant till the report on the amalgamation scheme had been received. Mr. THOMPSON'S leter is opportune, for, as he says, Mr. WRIGHT'S misleading asser- tions have got the start, and there will be no other opportunity of correcting them till the November meeting of the County Council. Meantime Mr. WRIGHT is allowing judgment to go by default by maintaining silence in face of the challenge of Mr. WOLLEY DOD, and we are driven to the conclusion that he has no answer to the critieism3 that have been passed upon his inexplicable action as the representa- tive of a division of Cheshire in this matter.
