In again coming forward for the division which he represents, if another candidate be forthcoming he will have but a forlorn hope, as Mr Jones is a very strong candidate, and will probably be returned by a largtl majority. Mr T S Price, who again appeals to the electors of Llanerchydol ward, has done yeoman service for the working classes, and in his rough and ready style has brought measures conducive to improving the town, and if again elected he will, as in the past, faithfully serve the ward which he represents. Mr Howell Williams, of the Oross Keys, whose address was issued on Saturday, will be his opponent, and this gentleman will have to be up to concert pitcli if he wishes to be at all near the figures which will place Mr Pryce at the head of the poll. For Buttington ward, which was formerly represented by Mr John Jones (late;, of Bnll Hotel, two candidates are already in the field, Mr Aaron Watkin, builder, and Mr J Cowan, chemist The former is a practical man, and his experience would evi- dently assist materially the ward he wishes to return him, while the latter gentleman, who is a keen bnsiness man, and well up in finance, would also look after the interests of the ratepayers. Mr George Davies, for Castle ward, does not again seek re-election. Mr R P Jones, Fark, farmer, is so far the only candidate for this ward It is necessary that in a municipal borongh there should be a representative on the council who has the welfare of the agriculturists at heart, and willlmard their interests.
