TO THE ELECTORS OF THE COUNTY OF MONTGOMERY.. GENTLEMEN :— GENTLEMEN :— THREE TIMES YOU HAVE RETURNED ME T to Parliament. For the fourth time I invite your suffrages. Profeesions on my part are superfluous. You know my principles, you have watched my actions. I abide your judgment founded uptn your experi- ence. But the real issue at this Election is not one of my personal claims or of your consistency. We are bearing our part in the great General Inquest of the four Nations. And never did more depend upon the verdict now to be given by the people of Great Britain and Ireland. For Ireland six years cf cruel probation are over. Irish long-suffering and patriotism have achieved their fiiial coiiquert, and so won the respect and confidence of the British people as to ensure the speedy triumph of Irish Home Rule. Six years of Tory government have consolidated the Liberalism of Wales, have nourished and disciplined its forces both in and out of Parliament, and have led to the wide and fruitful recognition of the people of Wales as once more a Welsh Nation. That Wales should stand upon its own feet, that wht-ther in regard to religious freedom, to land reforms or to education, it should puisue its own ends with its own resources at its own disposal, and that it should do so independently, if need be, of the interests and fortunes of English as distinct from Imperial politics, has been the aim of all my humble endeavour in the service of Wales, and I thankfully recognize the auspicious emergence into public life of men sprung from the Welsh people, true and powerful representatives of the genius and aspirations of their race and faith. Gentlemen,—When I first addressed you more than twelve years ago, I rested my case upon the name of Mr. Gladstone, his priceless services to the State, and the national and imperishable treasure of his pure and lofty character." I rest my case now where it rested then, with no less faith and with far more knowledge. Mr Gladstone and the English Liberal Party, although well knowing that at this moment English Disestablishment would once more wreck their fortunes have, nevertheless, undertaken at Welsh demand to disestablish and disendow in Wales an integral portion of the English Church. But they have pledged themselves solely on the faith and ground of our assurances tbat we represent in our demand the overwhelming majority of the Welsh people. I call therefore for your votes in the interests of Welsh Disestablishment. For Wales that is the paramount question at this Election. Lord Salisbury, Mr Balfour, and Lord R. Churchill have in the sight of all men nailed the Tory colours to the mast of Establishment. The Duke of Devon- shire, as leader of the Dissentient Liberal Party, oted against Welsh Disestablishment. Unless, therefore, at this General Election Wales rftoords a decisive majority for the Liberal Party the cause of Welsh Disestablishment is undone. English Tories and Ergliih Liberals will alike recognize that the Welsh ppople have failed to redeem the declarations of their Press, their Platform and their Parliamentary Party, and the very foundation of the case for Welsh Disestablishment will fall from under it. Gentlemen,—You, through my voice, have con- sistently declared that English Establishment is the Dublin Castle of Wales, and that to Wales Disestab- lishment is little less than Home Rule is to Ireland. To your decision at the Polls, even more than to that of other Welsh Constituencies, England and the Liberal Party will turn for a final test of the true sense and mind of Wales. Hitherto hundreds of Welsh Nonconformists have heedlessly voted Tory. I ask you respectfully to consider that every Nonconformist who now records a Tory vote at this momentous Election deliberately casts in his lot with the Establishment, takes the course, which can alone preserve it, and thus at the very crisis of the struggle betrays the sacred causes of Religious Freedom and of Welsh Nationality. I am, Your very faithful Servant, STUART RNDEL. Berthddu, June 25th, 1892. c740 — —.—,—. TO THE PARLIAMENTARY ELECTORS OF THE COUNTY OF MONTGOMERY. GENTLEMEN,— IN A FEW DAYS PARLIAMENT WILL BE DISSOLVED. The calling of a new Parliament will immediately follow. I have the honour of offering myself as a Candidate for your suffrages in the Eleetion of a Member for this County. The last appeal to the Country resulted in the return of a Unionist Government with Lord Salisbury as Prime Minister. Their successful administration of all Imperial and Domestic affairs is a solid guarantee that they will do as well in the future as they have done in the past, should they be returned to power, and I should be prepared to give them an independent support. The Union of Great Britain and Ireland has been, and must be, maintained. Ulster, that thriving province in the North of Ireland, has spoken-" We will not have Home Rule and appeals to you for help. I am ready at all times to advance the interests of the Principality of Wales. The promotion by Government of Light Railways in Ireland having proved so successful, I am in favour of similar measures for Wales, where private enterpise is inadequate to secure the necessary communications for the developement of Agriculture, Trade, and Minerals. As an Agriculturist I am most anxious to assist in I passing such measures as would promote the welfare of the farmers and labourers, knowing how nobly they have struggled to cultivate the land notwithstanding the low prices which prevail for Stock and Grain. Living amongst you I have for a long period worked hard for the benefit of the county, and I am anxious to render you further service. Welshmen! support your own countryman, and let me not appeal to you in vain. I have the honour to be, Gentlemen, Your obedient Servant, DEYEREUX HERBERT MYTTON Garth, 24th June, 1892. c747 MR. KERSHAW, SXXEGt-EOJSJ" DENTIST, ATTENDS DAILY AT 38, BROAD STREET, NEWTOWN. HOUFA-10 to 6. A ELECTION ADDRESSES. TO THE ELECTORS OF THE COUNTY OF RADNOR. GENTLEMEN,— THE TIME HAS COME when the Tory Govern- -L ment of Lord Salisbury can no longer put it au appeal to the Country, and a General Election, the issue of which will be aioinentoud to our Conutrv, is now upon us. I have had the honour of being cho-en as the LIBERAL CANDIDATE for the reprefentatio < i this County in Parliament, and I venture t.) Lvl" that Radnorshire wiil follow the ex m pie set í y other Constituencies, in which the Liberals bar- gained 21 seats as against 1 gained by the Tories, and that it will return to its former allegiance to the Liberal Party. The Tory Government of Lord Salisbury hat, deceived and betrayed the Country. It came into power pledged against Coercion and L'fnd Purchase for Ireland; but it has not only spent millions 1 f British money in buying out Irish Landlords, but ban also passed a severe and unnecessary Coercion Act. The Country was led to believe by the Tories in lSiti that an alternative pian to Home Rule would be produced, but no such plan has appeared for thoush the Government introduced a Local Government B it for Ireland it was abandoned after it had passed its second reading, and it was expressly stated by the Leader of the House of Commons that the measure was not meaut to be an alternative plan to Heme Rule. In face of these facts I am entitled to ay that the Government has broken it pledges and bus forfeited the confidence of the Country. In my opinion there will be no justice for Ireland, or peace for this Country, until we give the Irish a Parliament to manage their own affairs, subject to the main- | tenance of the rights of the minority, and the integrity of the Empire. Next in importance to Home Rule comes theque,ti, n of DISESTABLISHMENT and DISENDOWMENT OF THE CHURCH IN WALES. In the list lew years this reform has made a great advance, aad the Liberal Party has placed it on its programme immediately after HOME RULE FOR IRELAND. There is, therefore, every reason to hope that tais question will soon be settled in accordance with the wishes of the majority of the people of Wales, and I appeal to the Electors of Radnorshit e to return me to Parliament as their Member, that I may assist by my voice and vote in procuring for Wales the justice of religious equality. The Government claims credit for having passed the Free Education and Allotments Acts; but it must not be forgotten that these measures were looked upon with disfavour by the Tories up to the time of their introduction. The is that having been passed reluctantly these measures are defective and incomplete, and it will be the duty of the Liberal Party to amend them. FREE EDUCATION should beplaced under popular control, and the ALLOTMENTS ACTS should be amended so as to make them more eaeily worked. The Small Holdings Bill is, in my opinion, worthless, because it does not contain powers to take lands compulsorily, subject to reasonable compensation to the owners. I am of opinion that the REGISTRATION LAWS should be amended, 80 as to reduce the qualifying period for voters to a few months. At present a householder, under certain circumstances, may be kept for nearly 21 years without having his name placed on the Register. This state of the law presses particu- larly harshly upon voters whose calling necessitates their moving about from one locality to another, and is an injustice which calls for speedy redress. I am in favour of basing the Franchise on the principle of ONE MAN ONE VOTE," and of shortening the duration of Parliaments. The well-being of the Nation requires that the condition of the rural population should receive the immediate attention of Parliament. Any reform in this direction will involve the amending of the LOCAL GOVERNMENT ACT, and creating District and Parish Councils. Looking at the immense importance to this Country of the agricultural interests, a REFORM OF THE LAND LAWS is greatly needed, so as to secure the repeal of the laws of primogeniture and entail, the cheapening of the sale and transfer of land, and generally such other amendments as will make the position of the agricultural tenant more secure. I regret that the WELSH LIQUOR TRAFFIC VETO BILL, which recently passed its second reading, was not carried into law, and if I have the honour to be returned as your Member I shall heartily support any measure which has for its object the placing of the Licensing and control of Licensed premises in the hands of the people. It is claimed by the Tories that Lord Salisbury has distinguished himself above his predecessors by his conduct of Foreign affairs, but the facts do not warrant that claim. Since 1886 the CONDITION OF EUROPE has presented no difficulties for Lord Salisbury to contend with, and it must not be for- gotten that the distinguishing feature of Tory Foreign Policy under Lord Beaconsfield was a tendency to interfere in European disputes which did not concern this Country. This Policy was successfully resisted by the Liberal Party, and Lord Salisbury has had the wisdom to base his Foreign Policy on the lines laid down by his Liberal predecessors. POLITICAL POWER is now in the hands of the people, and it rests with them to decide what use shall be made of that power. In offering myself as a Candidate for the representation of the County of Radnor in Parliament, in the Liberal interest, I trust that the majority of the Electors of this County will show by their votes that they approve of the Policy of the Liberal Party, and are determined to press for those amendments of the law which they can only hope to obtain fally from the Party of PRGGBESS, LIBERTY AND REFORM. I have the honour to remain, Gentlemen, Your obedient Servant, FRANK EDWARDS. Knighton, Radnorshire, 21st June, 1892. c732. TO THE LIBERAL ELECTORS OF THE MONTGOMERY BOROUGHS GBNTLEMEN, THE battle hae been fought and lost; but an JL honourable defeat is better to be endured than any victory achieved by unworthy means. You will do me the justice to allow that I never failed to impress upon you the absolute necessity of fighting the good fight fairly, as well as bravely, and, I am proud to say, that you nobly responded to my appeal. Wo have been defeated but not routed, for though victories be lost principles survive, and we shsll yet ralh around the Old Flag. It i i not for me to question the motives which have led, orne of my former supporters to transfer their vote- to my opponent; but to the men who were staun h to me throughout the struggle, and who did all ip heir power to return me as their representative, I and w liose kindness to me personally was as marked as evric, I return my most sincere and most hearty thanks. In bidding you farewell, believe me I shall always | entertain the warmest wishes for your welfare and happiness. Yours faithfully, F. S. A. HANBURY-TRACY.
