I SIR HOWELL DAYIES, M.P. Sir William Howell Davies, V P., who was re- ceived with applause, sai d he was glad to visit the peaceful town of Builth in this very stormy time in our national history. Since he visited Builth many yeass ago the town had grown, and he hoped the larger Builth would provide many men for His Majesty's forces. The time had long gone by when they had any need to apologise for the part they had to play in this great war. They had found out during the last nine or ten months the true character of the German people. They did not want German methods and German militarism in this country. They Wanted to preserve the liberty which had been handed down to them from past generations, and, unless they were victorious in this struggle, the privilige8 they now enjoyed could not be handed on. to their children. (Hear, hear.) Having referred to Germany's long pre- parations for this war and her hatred for Eng- land, Sir William said it was for them to show that British spirit and British valour were equal to the great crisis. He asked whether they had ever read in the history of their country any more glorious page than the landing, in the face of al- most insuperable difficulties, of our troqps in the Dardanelles. (Applause.) Such a story alone should make them as Britishers thrill with pride, and every young man who had not yet enlisted should take his place in the ranks. (Hear, hear.) If it had not been for the valour of their sons who had gone out, and for our heroic Navy—(cheers)— we, to-day, would Wive been suffering as the men and women of Belgium had suffered. If they wanted to preserve our shores inviolate, it could only be done by the valour of our men. It was not for the young men who had not gone out to rest upon the laurels gained by others, but they must take their share in the conflict and play their part, so that when the time came they would feel the pride of having done something towards achieving the great Aid glorious victory which must be ours. (Cheers.) Addresses were also delivered by Mr Williains- Vaughan and others, and the meeting concluded with the "Marseillaise" and the National An- them. Llanaammarch Wells Meeting. I The meeting held in the village at Llangam- march Wells, on Tuesday evening, was very well attended, and the speeches listened to with great interest. The chair was taken by Rev. Evan Evans, Cefngorwydd. and he was supported by Sir Wm. Howell Davies, M.P., Mr Sidney Robinson, M.P., Major Sir George Forestier- Walker and Mr G. Paton. An extended report of the meeting will appear next week. To-night (Wednesday) a meeting is being held at Llanafan-fawr.
