LIBERAL MEETING AT MONTGOMERY. Mr David Davies, M.P., presided over a largely attended meeting at Montgomery Town Hall on Thursday evening. The Chairman described Mr Humphreys-Owen as an ideal candidate, who would make an excellent member. He stood for the right cause, for justice and fair play in the affairs of this country, and for the su- premacy of the House of Commons. He asked them to give him a good majority of over IOO, and concluded by moving a vote of confidence in the candidate. Mr Clement Davies, Llanfyllin, Alderman Morgan Thomas, Cardiff, Mr Jones, of the Free Trade Union, also spoke. The Liberal candidate said that if he had to pay tariffs on the things he used to repair his property, he would need higher rents, and the workmen would get lower wages. He had been in America, and he could tell them it was a serious matter. Let them vote for Colonel Pryce-Jones as often as they liked, but do not do so when he wanted to put a tax on bread. Colonel Pryce-Jones, at Newtown, some time ago, said he did not budge a bit from his opin- ions on Tariff Reform. Mr Balfour said at Nottingham that he meant to put 2s on flour and corn. At this election Tariff Re- form would turn its head for ever. So long as a Lord, from the day of his birth to the day of his death, could pass laws in defi- ance of the House of Commons, he would insist that they should come before the country, as he had to do, and they would be better men for it. Most of the Lords had never served their country, and would never be able to do so. Let them have a House of Lords that would assist the country. He was a two-chamber man, and not a destructionist. Whatever legislation came forward, he would always think what benefitted the Montgomery Boroughs. Rating was extremely unfair, and he in- tended to see that put upon a fair and level basis. After several questions had been an- swered, the vote of confidence was put and declared carried.
