COUNTY COUNCIL ELECTIONS ABERCABN.—There does not appear on the part of the Abercarn district any disposition to oppose the re-election of Councillor Tom Howe, the sitting member and this feeling appears also to prevail in the Newbridge and Crunilin district, although it is stated thab as far as the Celynen workmen are concerned, they have decided to nominate Mr George Barnfield, one of their workmen, as a. candidate. A meetmg of the Newbridge and Crumlin Liberal Association was, however, held at the English Baptist Chapel on Wednesday night, at which a resolution was adopted pledging itself to support the re-election of Councillor Tom Howe. The nominations are to he in on Monday next, 25th inst. BRIDGEND.—At a numerously-attended meeting of Conservatives, held at the Conservative Club on Thursday night, it was resolved that the party should run a candidate on party lines for the forthming county coullcil election, and after a discussion Mr W. McGaul was unanimously adopted as the candidate. MORBJSTON.—Mr Wm. Williams. M.P., as announced on Friday,- does not intend offering himself for reflection at the forthcoming county council election. Mr Llewellyn Davies, Bryngelly, will in all probability contest the vacancy. Mr Davies is now a member of the county council for the Morriston district, but under new conditions only one member will now be returned for the districb in place of two. RADNORSHIRE.—A correspondent writes :— Your contemporary of Tuesday published a statement praising the present Conservative majority, but it contains several inaccuracies which should be exposed. It is untrue that politics have been entirely subordinated," or how, with five Conservatives to three Liberal councillors, are there seven Conservative alder- men to one Liberal ? Three or four appoint- ments to offices have been made, and in every case young hangera-on of the party have been chosen over the heads of the older and more ex- perienced men. AT tho last meeting the council had to appoint eight county governors for inter- mediate sohools, and every one was a Church- man, the only Liberal being the county member, who could not well be omitted, especially as he subscribed largely. Moreover, there are six local governing bodies, who each elect one county governor, and these have been jerrymandered," so that everyone is certain to appoint a Church- man and a Conservative, making 14 Churchmen out of 17 elected county governors, and that in a county of Nonconformists with a Liberal M.P., aud where Liberal victories were won in almost every instance at the parish and district council elections. This packing of the governing body with one side has closed the pockets of Noncon- formists to subscribe to schools. Yet the Radicals are blamed for crying" fiKQt all along the line." Unfortunately they are only fighting in a few divisions, and it is a pity more energy is not shown in the matter. Your contemporary charges the Nonconformists of Llandrindod Wells with being uncompromisingly bitter on the elementary school question. Small wonder if they were, seeing that the voluntary (?) school (subscriptions last year were not one-sixth of the grant, about £30 in nIl) is managed by tho rector and the members of his household. His co- managers are treated as cyphers, and publicly state that they do not approve of the present management. There is not a word to be said in favour of this precious voluntary school, the only answer being that should a board be formed, the rector will on no terms hand over the present school buildings—although built by the subscrip- tions of the locality before his presence was seen among the people—and that new buildings and maintenance will cost at least 2s 6d in the £ rate annually. This is used against the Liberal candidate for the county council, although the two things have nothing to do with each other. Returning to the county council question, there is no doubt) that but for the impetuosity of certain reckless Conservatives, the asylum difficulty would have been postponed, at aU events, for a few years. As to general administration, the present council has considerably increased the county rate as compared with the first council, when the Liberals were stronger. ABERAMAN.—We are given to understand that the Reyv. H. P. Jenkins, Congregational minister, has befen asked to stand as county councillor for No. 4 Ward, and that lie has consented to come out in the LIber:\1 interest. ABERDABE.—ABKRAMAN WABD.—Mr T. Davies, the retiring councillor in this ward, has expressed his intention of offering himself for re-election at the forthcoming election. He will bo opposed by Mr T. Rees.™ CWMAVON.—Ib was thought that no election would tako place at Cwmavon, and that the present county councillor, Mr Thomas Davies, would be returned unopposed. However, it has transpired that Mr LI. Griffiths (overseer) has already declared his intention to oppose Coun- cillor Davies consequently, a sharp tussle can be expected. Both candidates are stnunoh Noncon- formists, and both are deacons at Penuel Baptist Chapel. At the request of an influential and representative body of ratepayers. District Coun- cillor Mr S. Bamford Davies has consented to conthlt the seat. OGMORE DIVISION.—A meeting in support of the candidature of Mr Councillor Evan Evans was held at the Congregational Schoolroom ab Fforddgyfraith on Thursday eveniug. The Rev. Dan Williams presided, and addresses were de- livered by Messrs John Grace, J.P., Thomas James, Anthony Lewis, Thomas Evans, and T. D. Williams. The Rev. D. Williams moved, and Mr Hopkin Thomas seconded, a vote of confidence in Mr Evanc, which was carried.
