The Coming Fight.

The Coming Fight. Although suddenly bereft of a candidate at the -eleventh hour, the Liberal Party in the Boroughs will have no difficulty in securing a suitable cham- pion. Indeed, the only difficulty likely to con- front the Executive at its meeting on Tuesday is the choice of the best from amongst a number of excellent men. The names of several prominent local Liberals have, of course, found spontaneous mention, and no doubt a local gentleman will command favour. Handicapped by an unfortun- ate situation, the party is, nevertheless, confident of victory. On this occasion Liberals will be thoroughly united in the fight round a candidate of its own heart, which fact represents an immense -advantage over the adverse conditions experienced last January, when many Liberal votes were with- held from the support of a doubtful claimant. The party organisation will require little labour to bring it up to fighting trim, and this will be speedily accomplished after the selection of a candidate. The Tory canvasser is already active in the interests of Col. Pryce Jones, but the silence of County Tories indicates a walk-over for Mr. David Davies. Rumour is rife with the name of Mr. Sidney Heap, of Mellington Hall, but we hardly imagine the Tory party will take the field with a ■candidate less popular than Mr. Arthur Williams Wynn, whose overwhelming defeat enabled them to realise the invincibility of County Liberalism.
