REV. D. 3. DAVIES, CARMARTHEN, AND THE TEMPERANCE CAUSE. To the Editor of THE JOURNAL. SIR,-At the request of the indefatigable secretary of the blue ribbon movement (who is a Churchman), I attended their meeting on Sunday evening last, and was pleased to see sush a vast gathering. I succeeded also in having a good few of the members of the Church of England Temperance Society along with me, who have not attended once these Suuday evening meetings ever since we (Church- men) were boycotted" in February of last year. The meeting was being conducted with decorum and decency, when, suddenly, without being called upon, the Rev D. S. Davies, of Union-st., (C) jumped upon his feet, and made such personal and abusive remarks, never to be equalled on an election plat- form, and appeared more of a mountebank than a minister of the Gospel, and of a clown than a peacemaker. He spoke in the most abusive terms of Churchmen, Conservatives, and publicans, and said that he thanked God he had no publicans in his Church. He did not want them, but the Church of England were proud of them." What induced the reverend gentleman to make such remarks on a temperance platform was the Licensing Bill brought forward by Mr Ritchie in the House of Commons. I am as much in favour of sobriety as any one in Carmarthen, and wish all temperance societies every success, but I firmly believe that such remarks as were made on Sunday evening by the Rev. D. S. Davies do more harm to the cause than we can imagine, and the sooner the committee put down such i diotic addresses, the better.—W.M
