1: THE REPRESENTATION QF MONMOUTHSHIRE. Great Liberal Meeting at Chepstow. A crowded Liberal meeting was held at Chep- stow oil Wednesday evening. Dr Yeats pre- sided-, and was supported by Sir Henry Jaofeeon, MrT. C. Price, and Mr C. M. Warmington (the Liberal candidates for the county). Mr Mog- gridge, the ilevs J. B. Quaid, and A. T. Davies, Mr H. Gilliam, and others. Mr Sergent proposed the following resolution « That this meeting of Libers electors desires to express its unabated confidence in the Liberal Govern- ment, aud its grateful appreciation of the patriotic exertions of the Right Hon.Mr Gladstone. (Applause). Mr BAILHACHE (Newport) seconded the motion. Sir HENRY JACKSON, in supporting the resolu- tion, said there could be no doubt about the acsion of Mr Gladstone in coming to a compro- mise which the Tories asserted was in their favour being a thoroughly patriotic one. It had given an additional member to Monmouthshire, and had resulted in the creai-ioii of a. new area to which Chepstow gave its name. He congratu- lated the town upon this fact, and from what be had seen he felt sure t;iere was a strong Liberal feeling in the district, which he beiieved extended far beyond the boundaries or the town, and that, in having Cnepstow as a. centre, the Liberal warty had nothing to complain of, but, on the contrary, something to ba very grateful for. (Applause.) iV.m'y ties were very well for a member to possess, but he could conceive topics such as the enfranchisement of leaseholds, when gentlemen who represented family connec- tions of the large landowning class wd bad their interest and that of their constituencies at variance, and it would become a question whether such members would suppoit the interests of their constituents or allow family interest to be paramount. Personally, he was not at all afraid of the way in which the agricultural labourer would vote. He should have nked to see a good county government scheme introduced before the Fran- chise Bill was passed, because by that means the electors would have been educated in smaller mattes first. (Applause.) Mr WASHINGTON referred to the struggle in which be assisted in the year 1880, and said it foreshadowed the triumph which, he believed, would result from the enfranchisement of 16*000 to 17,000 voters in Monmouthshire. In that county the extension of the iranchise had never been advocated a- a party measure- The new electors bad a splendid inheritance. There was not a single beneht the working man enjoyed The resolution was carried unanimously. Mr JOSEPH KLLIS (Chey»s o\v) proposed a reso- lution pledg-illg" the meeting to promote the return of a Liberal candidate for the newly-created division of the county. Mr FRIOE, in seconding the resolution, rpoke of the hopefulness of the circumstances under which they met, and adverted to the land question, advocating, as a remedy for the present agricul- tural depression, free trade in jaiaci, batter security for the tenant, and a more equitable readjustment of rent. Me aeneuneed the proposed corn tax as an insidiuu-i attempt to enrich 500,000 landowners aud farmers at the expense of 30,000,000 of consumers, and said fair trade was only protection under another name. Mr Price also referred to the county boards, which the Government proposed to deal with, and said the measure was a good democratic measure which would improve the public spirit ita counties, and enable people to control their awn affairs. Resolutions approving of the principles ex- pressed by Sir Henry Jackson, and thanking Messrs Waru-iugton and Price for their addresses, passed. Mr MOGGRIDGE complimented the meeting upon its orderly character, and said if Liberals would succeed in returning their three candidates, they must work hard, especially in the Chepstow division.
