GENERAL ELECTION, 1910 To the Electors OF THE County 23 Pembroke Gentlemen, You are again called on to select a Repre- sentative for the County of Pembroke in Par- liament. Having been adopted as the Conser- vative Candidate by the Conservative Council of this County, 1 have the honour to ask for your support at this Election. You have to consider a large number of questions of great potitical importance before you determine npon your representative, and I beg to place before you my viewa upon them. The House of Lords. I am opposed to the abolition of the Second Chamber or to such limitation of Power as will reduce us to Government by a Single Chamber. I favour such Reform of the House of Lords as shall limit the present hereditary right of a Peer to sit therein. I would support the extension to England and Wales of the representative system of the Peerage now in practice for Scotland and Ire- land. I desire to see the Second Chamber strengthened by the addition of Representa- tives, nominated by the Crown on the advice of the Government in Office, from those whcot in any class in life, have rendered eminent public service. Parliamentary Reform. I am in favour of the reduction of the dura- tion of Parliaments to five years of a Redis- tribution of the present Parliamentary Elec- torate, so as to secure a more accurate repre- sentation in the House of Commons of the will of the Country of a Reform of our Regls- I tration Laws and the removal of some Fran- chise Disabilities. The Church in Wales. I am opposed to the proposed Disestablish- ment and Disendowment of the Ancient Welsh Church. To disendow the Church is to take from her the funds now being properly used for the spiritual welfare of a large part of the Welsh people, and to devote them to worldly purposes. This would weaken the forces, at present inadequate, that are working for good in our land. I believe that the com- bined forces of Christianity are insufficient to make the nation as religious as thoughtful men desire to see it, and that to weaken one of them by taking away its funds will be an injustice to the Church and no real benefit to Nonconformity, or to Wales as a nation. Education. I am in favour of the right of the Parent to decide the daily Religious Instruction to be given to children I am in favour of such in- struction being given by teachers who hold the faith that they teach. The Budget and Tariff Reform. The action of the House of Lords has given the country the opportunity of deciding which of the two methods it will choose for raising the necessary Revenue. I think that the Budget will, if it become law, tend to increase Unemployment, to add to the burden of taxation of the Working Class, without benefiting them, and be in- jurious to the industrial prosperity of the Nation, and, far from reducing, wfll increase the difficulties in the development and acquisi- tion of land. I would support, in preference, the policy of Tariff Reform, because I believe that (1) It will increase our Industries by enabling us to make better terms with Foreign Nations for the entry of our Goods into Foreign Markets; (2) it will obtain the necessary Revenue from the Foreign Manufactured goods that come into this country: (3) it will, in so far as it does not obtain revenue, increase the demand for labour to supply the Home Market, and therefore reduce the extent of Unemployment in Great Britain. Colonial Preference. I believe that our Industrial Classes are benefited by the advantage which the Colon- ies are now giving to us by letting our Manu- factured Goods into twbir Markets at a lower duty than those of Foreign Countries. I be- lieve that these Markets will, in the future, become the great Markets of the World, and that it is of the utmost importance to us to retain that advantage. I would support any proposal for the re- arrangement of the existing Duties on Food, Drink, and Tobacco that would enable us to give a preference in return to our Colonies, provided that it does not increase the cost to the working man of the necessaries of life. I believe this to be possible, under the system of Tariff Reform, and that the people of Great Britain would be the gainers in the develop- ment of our Commerce to the Dominions beyond the Seas. I believe that this will unite all these Dominions more closely to the Mother Country, and that :it is vital to the future greatness and maintenance of the Brit!sh Empire. The Navy, The Maintenance of our Navy at a strength sufficient to make it impoasibie for the com- bination of any two European Powers to be superior in sea power to Great Britain is the. first duty of our Government. The Radical Government have failed to maintain this stan- dard and have thereby jeopardised our Naval Supremacy. If elected to Parliament, I should make the supremacy and efficiency of our Naval Forces my first duty. Old Age Pensions and Relief of the Poor. The continued payment of these is as cer- tain whichever Party returns to Office, as the payment of the Salaries of the Ministers of the Crown. I think that pensions should be extended to those persons, at present deprived of them, on account of Poor Relief, however small it may have been. I support the proposal to this effect, voted for by members of the Con- sertive Party on June 28th, 1908, and opposed by the Ridical Party in the House of Com- mons. A complete Reform of our Poor Law System is required, so that the afflicted and deserving poor may no longer feel that there is no remedy but the Workhouse for their misfor- tunes; honest poverty must be saved from association with the vagrant and worthless, as happens under our present Workhouse System. Agriculture. I would support any proposals that woulp increase the number of agricultural freeholders of land and that would enable occupiers of land to improve and develop their houses and land. The decline of agriculture and the popu- lation of the rural districts requires the im- mediate attention of Parliament the credit of the State, as has been the case in Ireland, should be employed to make advances to per- sons desirous of acquiring their holdings and for providing the necessary capital to improve land when acquired. Ireland. I am opposed to the grant of a separate Parliament to Ireland. Nothing that has occurred in recent years has altered the hostility of the Irish Nationalists to Great Britain and the Empire, or made it less disas- trous to entrust the Government of the loyal Protestants of Ireland to the control of a hostile Roman Catholic majority. Wales. The development and prosperity of Wales the growth and development of her towns, the success of her University, the improvement of higher Education, the cultivation of. her lan- guage and literature-with all those elements in Welsh National life, I am fully in sympathy. I do not think they would bo furthered by any movement that tends to create a political separation between her and the other Nations that form the Union. Having spent almost all my life in Pembroke- shire, I believe that I am in sympathy with the thoughts and ideas of Pembrokeshire men, and I welcome this opportunity of trying to serve them. Whether it be in Parliament or elsewhere, it will always be my desire to do whah I can for the good of those among whom I live, and if returned to Parliament, I should make that my chief aim. Trusting that you will favour me with your support. I remain, your obedient Servant, E. MARLAY SAMSON. Scotchwell, Haverfordwest, January 11th, 1910
TO LET, with immediate possession, all that House, Garden, and Premises, situated in Hill Road, Lower Fishguard, lately in the occupation of Mrs Thomas, who is leaving for the United States.—For further particulars apply to Mr W. Evans, solicitor, Tower Hill, Fishguard.
GENERAL ELECTION, 1910. 1 To the Electors OF THE County i3 Pembroke. Gentlemen,— Having been adopted as Candidate by the Liberal Association, I appeal to you again for renewal of the support so generously given me only 18 months ago. We have two plain and direct tasks before us. We have to force Mr Lloyd George's Budget through, we have to end for ever the veto of the House of Lords. The Budget is the answer to Tariff Reform. It provides the money to maintain the supre- macy of our Navy, and to pay for Old Age Pensions. It taxes each citizen according to the depth of his pocket and not according to the depth of his need. It taxes monopolies like Land and Licenses, and not necessaries like Bread and Meat. It asks the poor man to con- tribute by taxing his smaller luxuries, it asks the rich man to pay by graduating his Income Tax and Death Duties and taxing the Unearned Increment in his Land. The Taxes, which this year yield 12- mill- 1 ions, will yield over 16 millions next, year and over 17t millions the year after. Pensions can then be extended to those now in receipt of Poor Law Relief. Clubs, Friendly Societies and Trade Unions can then be assis- ted to make it possible for every worker to pro- vide for sickness. It provides £ 600,000 per annum to be spent annually on our roads; it provides £ 200,000 per annum to be spent for the benefit of the Farmer and Rural Industries. It relieves the Rates by giving half the growing revenue of the Land Taxes to the Ratepayers. It is a Budget for Defence and not for Defi- ance for Defence of our Shores for Defence of our Old and our Sick to develop not only our Navy, but the resources of our own coun- try. The House of Lords is a Hereditary Cham- ber. Five out of six of its members seldom attend its business and only come there to vote down Liberal measures. It is a House of Wealth and not a House of Work. Its members have rendered useless one-fourth of the time given by the House of Commons to Liberal measures during the past four years. They have made it impossible to establish a national in place of a denominational system of Education. I They have refused even a hearing to a Tem- perance measure, which was supported by all religious denominations and social workers of every party. f They have denied the doctrine of One Man One Vote. They stand in the way of the claim which the Welsh people have made for two genera- tions for Religious Equality. They now wish to wreck the Constitution and have added a claim to stand in the way of just taxation. These claims must not be allowed to impede the progress of an educated people. They Must Go. The House of Lords has a past. It must be denied a future. I would, if returned, spare no effort to main- tain the steady progress of the last four years in developing our Welsh Dockyard. I am in favour of Leasehold Enfranchise- ment, which would be rendered practicable bv the Land Valuation provided by the Budget. I am in favour of an extension of the Suffrage on a short residential qualification, and of Votes for Women. I appeal to all who believe in Free Govern- ment, Religious Equality and Just Taxation to support me at the Poll. Your obedient Servant, WALTER FRANCIS ROCH. Plas-y-Bridell, Pembrokeshire, 15th January, 191 o.

ENTRE NOUS. NEITHER Samson nor Arm-stong has been able to withstand the valiant prowess of the courageous lads of Fishguard I • WE would remind exuberant politicians that, in tne event or damage being done to proper- ty during the course of a demonstration," the Urban Council is liable, and that there will necessarily be an increase in the rates. « THE Oaths Acts is appropriately designated, for if even a measure were calculated to place a premium upon profanity it is this well- intentioned. but hopelessly impracticable piece of legislation, which has evoked empha- tic protests from all having business in the various courts of the Realm. We shall have more to say about the matter next week meanwhile we will content ourself by asking what authority the Home Office has to render confusion worse confounded by altering the provisions of a statute which has received the assent of the Three Estates. • • » • • PRECISELY what effect the proposal to abolish the direct passenger service to Waterford would, if carried out, exercise locally it is difficult to foresee. Naturally there would be no dimiution in the number of passengers— merely a diversion of traffic via Rosslare—and consequently we need not anticipate any decrease in the station staff. The quay hands would also lemain at the same strength as heretofore, for cargo boats will continue to run, and these craft wili require practically the same crews as do the present passenger vessels. Apparently the only department which is likely to be adversely affected by such a change is that responsible for the catering. On the other hand the alteration would place the Great Southern and the Great Western unreservedly at the dis- posal of the company as tenders for the Atlantic service and also as reserve boats for the Rosslare route, thereby obviating the un- satisfactory system of working double journeys which is necessitated whenever—as is at pre- sent the case—one of the turbiners is under- going her annual survey. -X- ? THE procrastination of the County Council has resulted in the withdrawal of the offer by Mr. J. C. YORKE of land in respect of the ,pro- posed diversion of Dinas Hill. Whilst all will rejoice at the prospects of a development of Parkymorfa upon a scale which cannot fail to react beneficially upon both the commer- cial prosperity and the assessable value of the locality, one cannot but view with regret the obstacle thus placed in the way of a public improvement which at present debars many motorists for making Fishguard a touring base. Doubtlfess, the hill will ultimately be diverted and the gradient modified, but it would be futile now to look for such favour- able terms as have been lost, through the folly of an authority which .imagines that a few hours quarterly are all that it is requisite to devote to the control and repair of the roads of Wales' Primier County.

The bride, who was given away by her brother, Mr W 0 Harries, was charmingiy attired in a tailor-made costume of amethyst hue, and wore a hat to match. She was at- tended by Miss Bessie Narbett, who was at- tractively gowned in blue, surmounted by a hat to match. Both bride and bridesmaid wore gold bangles, the gifts of the groom.

SATURDAY SCENES Outside Echo Offices. Declaration of First Polls. How Ireland Received the News. Scenes unprecedented since the days of the Boer War were witnessed outside our head offices in High-street, Fishguard, on Saturday night, when we were enabled exclusively to announce to the impatient public the result of 69 polls which had taken place that day —the first of the memorable contest now in full swing. Our recently enlarged premises assumed the aspect of a club in which were assembled persons of all ages, every social grade, and ( many divergent forms of political thought, whilst large numbers who were unable 10 obtain admittance had to be content with assembling in the thoroughfare, which was packed with a dense mass of humanity which cheered or groaned lustily according to the manner in which the several results appealed to its corporate view of the situation. The first results were received at about 11.40 and, having been announced to the waiting crowd, were posted in the window, whence they were eagerly copied by the more enthusiastic partisans. Thenceforth tele- gram followed telegram with great rapidity, until by one o'clock no less than 63 results had been made known. It had not been anticipated that, at that hour, any further messages would come through, but during the next hour three sup- plementary wires were received, and even then the number of enthusiasts who made careful note of the figures must have run into at least a couple of score, and it was just on 3.30 on Sunday morning when the crowd left our front shop. Simultaneously with the enthusiasm which prevailed in the front portion of our premises a scene of strenuous activity might have been witnessed at our printing works, where, as fast as the results were received, they were set in triplicate type, and at one o'clock printing operations were commenced. During the ensuing hour no less than 4,500 copies were worked oil, and these were conveyed promptly to the Harbour Station, whence at 2.20 a.m. they were despatched aboard the Rosslare boat en route for the Emerald Isle, the time which had elapsed between the receipt of the first telegram and the sailing of the vessel having been but two hours and forty minutes. The motive actuating this unique journal- istic feat was to enable readers of Lloyd's Weekly News in Ireland to peruse the elec- toral results by seven o'clock on Sunday morning, a feat which would have been im- possible had the printing taken place in London. It speaks volumes for the enter- prise of one of London's greatest newspaper firms that it should have conceived so ingen- ious a project as entrusting the printing of supplements to the Echo," and the fact may be accepted as evidence of the remarkably expeditious manner in which the new port is establishing herself in the public confidence as a starting-point for Ireland, for Lloyds Weekly News," together with its Fishguard- printed supplements, were speedily dissemin- ated from Rosslare throughout the whole of Erin. Furthermore, an additional five hun- dred copies met with a ready sale in Fish- guard and her evirons. o Apropos of Saturday's journalistic "scoop it is interesting to learn—as we do authorit- atively—that 1,500 copies of our" Mauretan- ia Special Edition have been dispatched by the Great Western Railway 'Company to America for distribution.

Atlantic Traffic.On Wednesday of last week the Booth liner Anthony" was to have called at Fishguard for the purpose of debarking passengers, but, inasmuch as only two signified a desire to land here, procee- ded direct to Liverpool instead. — The Cun- ard liner Umbria was, on the same date to have paid her initial visit to the port, and also to have inaugurated the direct New York-Fishguard service, but, having been considerably delayed by heavy weather in mid-Atlantic, would have been unable to have reached the port until an hour on Thurs- day morning exceedingly inconvenient to passengers, with the result that the call was abandoned. No Cunarder is due this week, but the "Lusitania is expected to arrive direct from New York at about six o'clock on Monday evening. Pastoral.—The pastorate which has been accepted by the Rev S A Evans, minister of the local Congregational Church is situate at Wem, in Shropshire, whither he will proceed at the end of March. — The Revs Cynon Jones and George Thomas have already settled down to their ministerial duties in connection with Bethesda and Berachah Chapels respectively.

Economy.—The Porteur was on Mon- day actively engaged in dredging the har- bour-bed for derelict coal. Harbour Station.— The extension of the telegraphic department at the Harbour Station by the incorporation of the Superin- intendent's office — long foretold in these columns—was last week effected, and proves a very decided improvement. Mr Bowen and his clerk have been accommodated in one of the superfluous waiting-rooms, which has been adapted to the purpose. Parrog Bridge.—The temporary structure spanning the Parrog road having been care- fully shored up, a travelling steam crane was on Monday utilised for the purpose of raising into position the heavy concrete blockshich are intended to form the coping stones of permanent structure. Already tipping on the Parrog side of the buttressess has commenced, and the embankment is now beginning to make its way seawards across the historic sands. Personal.—We are pleased to learn that Mr Bowen's (Station and Quay Superinten- dant's) son Clifford is progressing rapidly, but it will be some time before he will be in his usual condition, as he had a very bad attack of pneumonia which he contracted at Park Royal.
