ARTHUR HUMPHREYS-OWEN. LIKE one man the Liberals of the Mont- gomery Boroughs have leaped spontaneously into the great constitutional struggle, and the unexampled enthusiasm with which they have rallied round their popular champion heralds a magnificent victory. The boom of battle finds them ready for a supreme effort. They will fight with splendid unity, loyalty, and determination for the triumph of a great cause, and with an inspiring pride in the gallant and gifted son of Glansevern, who leads them on. Humphreys-Owen is a name which shines upon many a chapter in the modern history of our county, and it will long dwell in the recollection of a com- munity heartily grateful to the noble-minded man who bore it, and who sacrificed him- self for their well-being. That gratitude is deepened and intensified to-day by the coming of the son, who inherits the admir- able traditions of his worthy sire, and is inspired by the democratic principles from which Liberalism draws its strength. More than that, Mr Arthur Humphreys-Owen was obviously born for the heat and turmoil of battle, and finely he is equipped to bear himself throughout this historic campaign. Nature has endowed him with a swift and receptive mind, with the courage of strongly entrenched convictions, with a zest for con- flict in the cause of human betterment, and with a big-hearted ambition to become an officer in the very van of social progress. The "taint of heredity" is set upon him. Grandly he follows in his father's footsteps. Proudly he wears the mantle of an honoured sire. In Parliament he will assuredly add lustre to the family name. Little wonder we at his unanimous selec- tion to fight the battle of Liberalism in this constituency. The brilliant part he played in the party success last January marked him as a future leader of men. No land tax, nor super-tax, could diminish this land- lord's consecrated attachment to Liberalism. As his political principles do not lie in his pocket, the squirearchal screams of despic- able selfishness outraged his keen sense of honourable obligations. With what splendid courage he risked the ties of friendship in a vigorous assault upon the sordid politics of the rich How admirably he exhibited the deep-founded sincerity of his Liberalism and his genuine affection for the advance- ment of the social weal To-day every! working man in these Boroughs recalls with, something more than satisfaction that heroic stand in the interests of the common people, and he is not likely to forget it when within the polling booth he discharges his duty as an intelligent citizen, and at the same time vindicates the titles of his citizenship.
