Outhwaite, the Hanley, M.P., who addressed a public meeting at YstradgynLais the other day, was re- fused a hearing at the Brotherhood Church, Southgate-road, London, on Sunday, where he intended to speak on "Finances of the War." Rev. F. R. Shaw, pastor, ajinounced Hymn 23 of the Brotherhood, sung to the tune of "Auld Lang Syne. While the organist played it the great majority of the audience sang "God Save the King. Meanwhile a soldier with his back to the wall in a corner of the church was fight- ing two pacifists. The appearance of Mr. Outhwaite on the platform was the signal for an out- burst of booing. He stood with his hands clasped, waiting to say something, while others, more resolute, attempted to gain a hearing for him. At one period four were standing in front of the platform shouting at the top of their voices. Mr. Outhwaite had an argument with an armleted man, who said that Mr. Outhwaite had called him "a traitor." A little later a wounded soldier climbed with difficulty on to a table and tried to take off his greatcoat but failed. Ready hands removed it for him and he then addressed to Mr. Outhwaite some words which could not be heard Almost simul- taneously Mr. Outhwaite and Mr. Shaw exclaimed "The meeting is closed." Cheers were raised and the soldier was lifted from the table. Mr. Outhwaite had been on the platform for half an hour. The National Antham and Rule.
