WELSH electors assembled to listen to an M.P. evince a. growing desire to be ad- dressed in the vernacular. This is especially the case in Carmarthenshire, and the meetings which were held last week In the eastern division of the county gave striking instances of the fact. Mr ABEL THOMAS did not at all feel disposed to respond to the cries of Cymraeg 'naur ("Welsh now") with which he was occa- sionally interrupted, but he certainly could not resist the temptation, and at each of the meetings complied with the requests, though the results could hardly be regarded as a marked success. The electors present at the Llangadock meeting were most agreeably surprised when Mr J. LLOYD MORGAN, the Member for West Carmarthenshire, turned from English to Welsh, and again and again cheered him as he proceeded in the delivery of a splendid speech in the vernacular. Had the Ammanford meeting known that he was such an excellent speaker in the mother tongue" they would have doubtless in- sisted upon the hon. member complying with the repeated demands for Welsh. On Thursday night, Mr S. T. EVANS received a warm welcome by the colliers and tin- platers in the Amman Valley, who were simply delighted to find one of Wales's sons expressing himself so fluently, and with a lucidity which quite charmed his audience, in the vernacular. Mr S. T. EVANS' constituents will doubtless be glad to learn that his ser- vices and his value are being very highly ap- preciated outside his own constituency, asthe following resolution passed not long since by the Amman Valley Liberal Association will testify We, as an Association, feel it our duty to convey our hearty and thank- "fui acknowledgments to Mr S. T. EVANS, "M.P., for his praiseworthy and successful "services for Wales during his Parliamentary "career, and congratulate the electors of Mid- Glamorgan upon having as its representa- t" tive an advocate so able, eloquent, and 'thorough of the rights of his fellow- -countrymen." Mr LLOYD-GEORGE IS regarded as the brightest speaker in the vernacular amongst the Welsh representa- tives, and the speech which he contemplates delivering at Gwaencaegurwen in support of Mr D. RANDELL'sndidature is looked forward to with no little interest by the industrial classes of the Amman Valley.
