Radnor Tories and the King. A REPROOF FROM LORD KNOLLYS. A Radnorshire Unionist paper last week issued a poster bearing in bold type the words: The great fight for King am country and Venables-Llewelyn for Rad- norshire (Venables-Venables being the name of the Conservative candidate). A copy of this poster was sent to Lord Knollys, with an inquiry as to whether in his opinion, the King's name should' be brought into party politics. Lord Knollys has written the following letter in reply:- In reply to your letter, I beg to in- form you that in answer to similar in- quiries addressed to me during the 1 reign of King Edward, I invariably stated that His Majesty strongly depre- cated any reference to himself in political posters, and the appearance in them of any emblem relating to His Majesty. The King entirely shares the' views entertained by His late Majesty." The reply of Lord Knollys is being cir- culated throughout the constituency. Montgomeryshire readers will be reminded by this little incident of a similar happen- ing in connection with a Tariff Reform demonstration organised by Mr Sydney R. Heap, where the Royal Arms were em- blazoned on the Protectionist placards, thereby incurring the Royal displeasure.
