Hi.nln.-0-HTm-l r- 11 I,|j j WALES AN D CRETE. At an enthusiastic meeting of the people of Bala, held on Thursday, Dr. Hughes occupying the chair, the following resolution was uriani iriously adopted:— 'That this meeting heartily sympathises with the efforts of Greece on behalf of the op- pressed Cretans, and protests against the use of British forces to coerce them, and their defenders, the Greeks. That this meeting de elares it is contrary to all justice and humanitv to make the integrity of the Turkish Empiro any longer an object of British policy.' A copy of the above was addressed to Lord Salisbury, Sir W. Harcourt, and Mr. Thomas E. Ellis, the member for the county of Merion- eth. The following speakers took part in the meeting:-Profe,ssors Hugh Williams, G. O. F. Graeie, and Ellis Edwards, the Rev. Talwyn Phillips, and Mr. A. P. Roberts (Liverpool). The following is a copy of a message sent to the people of Greece by the Welsh Union of Women's Liberal Association:— We, the members of the W elsh Union re- presenting ten thousand Liberal women, desire to eonrey to you, the people of Greece, our symupathy with your magnificent effort to secure the lives and liberties of the oppressed Cretans. We, whose countrymen have strug- gled and triumphed in the past in the cause of civil and religious liberty, share your aspira- ti«ns, and rejoice in the remembrance that our own country in the days of Navarino was identified with the Greek struggle for freedom. We feel convinced that the high destiny of civilisation is to bring to both men and women of all nations the right of self-government, and of personal liberty, and we trust that, by the union and practical endeavour of all who de- sire this end, the awakened conscience of Europe may yet force her to turn her arms from their present threatening attitude, and place them on the side of the defenders of human rights. We pledge ourselves to do what we can to attain this result by rousing pnblie opinion in our own land, and we wish yon God-speed in your heroic struggle against tyranny and in your splendid endeavour to obtain just government a presecuteu people.'
