LSScEKAL MEETING AT GLAN CONWAY. SIR J. HERBERT ROBERTS' SIMILE. Sir J. Herbert. Roh-ert-s addressed a meet- ing of his c&ii.vtitutnv3 at the Bryn Eben^er Welsh C.M. Schcolrocon, Glan Conway, on Wednesday week, when ho was accompanied by Mr J. tionier Robcits, J.P., of Dsnb:gh. There was a good attendance, and at tho outecib, Dr. M. J. Morgan, of Conway, who occupied the chair, epcaiing a. few words in W OI, paid a warm tribute to the personal character of Sir Herbert. Eh Herbeit who was cordially wcl- oonned, spoke alternately in Welsh and Eng- i-VCt. In dealing ¥.'i:t.b. the Tariff proposals of the Conservative Party, and the ijudgett proposed by Mr Lloyd George, Sir Herbeiifc remarked that agricultural land was exempt under Lhe land ta.xes imposed by the BuOrct flhrown out by the Ilouce of Lords. Ret erring to the action c-f the Lords, Sir Herbert said that the other day he had had the experience of being snowed up in a. SDOW- drift. rlho Upper House was something like a snowdrift: they were in the V.-ay of all pro- gressive movements (laughter). There was something more in Libenaliszn than was at first evident. Liberalism meant the upli £ tiv.g of the vast masccs of humanity to a higher level of happiness and prosperity (cheers), like constituency which he had represented was an agricultural one, and he assured them that he would do all in his power in the intercuts of the farmers. Concluding, Sir Herbert- appealed to them to support .him at the forthcoming election aa whole-heartedly as they had done in the pact (loud chcers). Mr Gofficr Roberts, who followed, spoke in Welsh, and said the policy advocated by the Conservative Party, namely, Tariff Reform, had changed its name on several occasions. First it k d been known as Fair Trade, but it had since changed its name twice, which he contended was not a good omcn for any policy (applause). A resolution of confidence in Sir Herbert Roberts was proposed by Mr D. Evans, and seconded by the Rev. Robert Williams. On the resolution being put to the meet- ing, two voted against it. "e second resolution, proposed by Mr J. W. Clayton, and seconded by Mr Jenkinson, Cif the Bungalow, pledged the meeting to support •the House of Commons in their light against thB House of Lords. ;) This was carried unanimously. A letter was read from a Manchester mer- chant, who resides at overside, apologising for his inability to "attend, and expressing this intention ot coming down to record his vote- for Sir J. Herbert Roberts. I
