€OL. FRED. MORGAN, M.P., ON AGRICULTURE. At the annual dinner of the ploughing match promoted by the Llantarnam Farmers' Club on Thursday evening, the Hon. Col. Morgan, M.P., presided, and congratulated the farmers upon having bad a very good season. Monmouthshire bad been exceptionally favoisred with the best harvest known for many years, and the hay crop bad also been extraordinarily good. Live stock, too, had been favoured, and there was less disease than had been the case for some years. It showed what a successful distriat Monmouthshire was when it could attract such firms as Messrs Nettle- folds. When trade went up agriculture progressed. Prices for produce were rising, and although wheat proved tan exception, be did not think America and other (countries would be able to send eo much wheat in the future as they bad done in the past. With steady industry on the part of English farmers he thought they would be able to grow sufficient wheat for our own wants, and sret better prices for it. In tho reariug of stock the English farmer had not, after all, done so badly. It was true that enormous quantities of cattle had been imported from other countries but he believed home-grown Btock done so badly. It was true that enormous quantities of cattle had been imported from other countries but he believed home-grown Btock made the best meat and would command the highest prices. Beef now brought a fair average return, and if farmers raised good stock they 'could dispose of it readily. The appointment of a Minister of Agriculture was then enlarged upon, and far- mers were promised that they would hence- forth be able to place their wants and wishes be fore a responsible department, and would receive attention such as had not hitherto been vouch- safed. Subsequently, Colonel Morgan, referring • to the Welsh Intermediate Education proposals, said he desired to see the Monmouthshire endow- ments remain in the county, and not be placed in a hotch-potch for the whole of Wales. With regard to to the trade of Newport, he thought it a lamentable thing that Icoal should be sent to Cardiff cheaper from the Western Valleys than from those valleys to Newport but he believed this oue-sided arrangement would soon be remedied. So far as ha and the otbor members of the Tredegar family were concerned, he thought they had always done their beat for the welfare of Newport. (Hear, hear.) -a..Io.
