THE REPRESENTATION OF TIIB I CARMARTHEN BOROUGHS. (nOli ooi OWN EWOBTM) .1 The meeting held at Llanelly, OIL Monday even- lot, to adopt Hr. Arthur Stepney u the Radical candidate for the representation of these boroughs, was a muoh larger and better meeting than that which had taken place at Carmarthen In the earlier put of the dfy. The result was a foregone oon- eloslon after what had taken plaoe at Carmarthen, and the steps taken by Hr. Stepney to monopolise the position. There was seme talk of opposition, and Mr, IJ. T. WiWsirt van expeated at Llanelly Indeed, he telegraphed that he should be there, but on aooount of the premature aotlon taken by Mr Stepney, he absented himself rather than oreats disunion In the ranks of his party. This is no, doubt very creditable to Mr. Williams, bat there are many who regret that his claims should again have been overlooked. Another gentleman who It has been thought by some would bb a candidate Is Hr. Lewis Morris, of the Be- form Club, the author of the celebrated letter to Mr. Ripley, the member for Bradford, and of the volume of poems known as the Song of two Worlds." Mr. Morris Is a native of Carmarthen, and was very anxious to became a candidate for the seat in 1868; but he was passed over la favour of Sir John Stepney, and ever slnoe has oonsldered that be has a claim ppon the boroughs. The meeting in question was held at the Athenwum, Lis nelly, and, although open to members of the Radical press, was of oonne elosed to anybodywho happened to differ In opinion. It was called by the liberal Association at a very short Inotloe, and Mr. John Randell, chairman of the local board of health, presided. Hr. Stepney was present, and a resolution declaring bIÎI. to be a fit and proper person to represent the t»>onghs was moved by Kr David Edwards, the mayor of Carmarthen, and seconded by Mr. Benjamin Jones, Caeffair. A long discussion then occurred, the deputation from Car- marthen calling upon the Rsdioals of Llanelly to be more resolute and Arm In their determination to support Hr. Stepney on this occasion than they had been In 1874. In reply, the gentlemen belonging to Llanelly, Including Mr. Wm. Thomas (Messrs. Thomas and Lester), Messrs. H. J. Howell, Bees Harries, Jenkin Williams, David Bvans, John Morgan,and others, made promises of their heartiest allegiance, The members of the Carmarthen depu. tation who spoke hidadeN the Mayor, the ex. Mavor (Mr. D. M. Morga\$Ald«m*n Thomas, Alderman Norton, and others. The resolution accepting Mr. Stepney's candidature was eventually unanimously agreed upon.
