Disturbances at Henner. Conservative Meeting Broken Up. Scenes of great disorder characterised a meeting held by Mr Marley Samson in Henner Schools, Llanwnda, immediately preceding the one at Fishguard. Mr Edward Perkins, of Penysgwarne, presided over a crowded attendance, which accorded a very good hearing to the candidates' exposition of his views and argumeuts, and even during question time the criticism to which he was subjected was of a good-humoured (character. As further evidence of the friendly spirit which at this period of the proceedings prevaled it should be mentioned that the vote of thanks for his address which was proposed by Mr T James, of Caerlem, was seconded by Councillor W Evans, a prominent Goodwick Liberal and heartily endorsed. No sooner, however, had the candidate de- parted for Fishguard than pandemonium was let loose, shouts being raised outside the Build- ing, and stones being thrown through the win- dows, one of the missles narrowly grazing Mr Evan Anthony's head. Those present climbed on the desks, and Mr Anthony had to appeal to them to respect pub- lic property, it being with great difficulty that the school-room was ultimately cleared of the refractory section of the audience, which had assumed entire control of the proceedings. Subsequently some of the most prominent Conservative adherents were pelted, whilst others had to be accorded police protection upon their homewaid journey.
