SIR WILLIAM HOWELL DAYIES, M.P. I Sir Wm. Howell Davies, M.P., said he had spoken in that village before, but as a party politi- cian. They were all politicians to-day, but their politics had one object, namely, that of finishing the war. (Hear, hear.) They were as one people, throughout the Empire, resolved to bring this war to a satisfactory conclusion, and to retain the liberties which had been handed down to them from their fathers. (Hear, hear.) Recalling the events of the past eleven months, Sir William said they must never forget the debt they owed to Belgium. (Applause.) There was no more glorious page in the history of the world than that which records how a small armv of 200,000 Bel- gians dared to throw themselves across the path of the German army. (Cheers.) In years to come, epics and poems would be written of the valour of Belgium, and of how they attempted to resist the onslaught of the German hordes. (Renewed cheers.) Those people, of whom Mr Robinson spoke, who would dare to contrast British and Ger- man rule, should consult the Belgian refugees, and ask them what they thought. Did they think that thousands of Belgians would leave their homes and rush into foreign territory if they thought they would be just as well off under the German flag? ("No.") Then he asked everyone to play their part in this great conflict. A cry once came from Macedonia to "come over and help us." There had been many such cries from the trenches in France from their own kith and kin. Where was the man who would refuse to answer to that cry? Was he of British blood? Was he of Welsh blood? No, he felt confident that thousands vet of brave hearts would beat, and thousands would respond to the nation's call in this her hour of peril. (Cheers.) Although they were living in such a peaceful village, all was not well. It was not well until every man of British blood said, "I have done my duty in this great national crisis." (Cheers.) Mr G. Paton and Major Sir. Geo. Forestier Walker also addressed the meeting. •v i *j
