GENERAL ELECTION, 1910. To the Electors OF THE Western Division of the County of Carmarthen. GENTLEMEN, Having represented you in the Home of Commons for o\er twenty years, I have the honour once more to seek re-election at your hands. The Members of the House of Lords, after destroying the Education, Licensing, and other important Liberal measures, have now refuse! to pass the Budget, and have ohus forced a General Election, and disorganised the inarces of the Country You have, therefore, to de! io one dominating issue, namely, Whether.foll wish to be governed by your own freely-chosen Re- presentatives, or by the aristocratic and irre- sponsible flotlo of Peers, who derive their authority by descent, and not by coamissi-n from the People. The Peers, ty their refusal to grant the supplies for tarrying on the Govern- ment. have brought about a contest which must once and for all determine their constitutional position. I art fully in agreement with the Prime Minister's declaration that legislation should at once be passed to prevent the House of Lords from ever ag-tin interfering with finance, and that their absolute veto on legislation must go for ever. I regard the Budget as a just measure, and for this reason I supported it in the House of Com mons It aims at putting the chief burden oe taxation upon those who are best able to bear it. While I regard the land taxes as fair, I wish to point out that these taxes do not relate to agricultural land, and that they impose no burden cn Farmers. They will, on the contrary, be found to lighten their burdens I am and always have been a Free Trader, and I am opposed to all protection taxes. The House- of Lords have succeeded in defeat ing the efforts made by the Government to secure Religious Equality, and in voting in my favour you will he furthering one of the causes which you and I have always had at heart namely, the Disestablishment and Disendowlltellt of the Church of England in Wales. The House of Lords is the only obstacle to the success of this just measure I am opposed to Religious Teaching in Puhhc Elementary Schools, and I regard the secular solution as the right settlement of the Education controversy I believe that the Agricultural Holding-, Act, the Development and Roads Act, as well as other Acts passed by the Government, will be found to be beneficial to Farmers, and I shall conti mo to support measures which will in my judgment prove helpful to the Agricultural Classes. As I have expressed my views on these an;1 many other quastions from time to time during the long period of my representation, it is I think unnecessary for me to dwell upon them now at any length. I will. therefore, only add that if I have the honour of again serving you in Parlin- ment, I shall do everything in my power to fur- ther the best interests of the Constituency in which I was born and have lived all the years of my life j I have the honour to be, Gentlemen, I Your faithful Servant, JOHN LLOYD MORGAN.

At Etholwyr Gorllewinol Sir I Gaerfyrddin. BONEDDIGION, Y mae dadgorfforiad y Senedd yn fy ngalluogi i dderbyn y blaid Undebol yn Ngorllewin Sir Gaerfyrddin i fod yn ymgeisydd ar eu rhan yn yr Etholiad presenol. Ni chefais fy arwain i'r penderfyniad hwn gan un- rhyw deimlad personol na digter yn erbyn yr aelod Rhyddfrydol presenol-Mr. Lloyd Morgan, K.C. Y mae yn eithaf possibl a chyson i edmygu a pharchu gwrthwyuebydd gwleidyddol, tra ar yr un pryd yn llwyr wabaniaethu oddiwrtho ar faterion sydd yn dal perthynas a llywodraeth ein gwlad. Fy mam i yw nad ydyw y gyfathrach gymysglyd Ryddfrydol-Sosialaidd-Wyddelig yn dueddol i hyr- wyddo llesad yr etholaeth hon nag undeb a chryfder Ymerodraeth fyd eang. Y mae Mr. Balfour wedi dweyd mai Diwygiad y Tollau (Tariff Reform) yw y peth pwysicaf yn nghynyg- ion y Blaid Undebol. Nid ydyw Masnach Rydd yn bodoli ond yn nychymmyg y Radicaliaid. Y mae per- ffaith ryddid i chwi brynu. Ond os dymunwch werthu eich nwyddau, ceuir chwi allan o farchnadoedd gwled- ydd tramor gan furiau uchel y Tollau. Y mae y gyfun- drefn hon yn ddinystriol i'n gwlad. Rhaid symud i ffwrdd neu ostwng y glwyd hon. Prinder gwaith, angen, a thlodi parhaus yw y canlyniad uniongyrchol os caniateir i'r tramorwr lanw ein marchnadoedd ni yma a'i nwyddau a'i gynyrchion, tra nid yw ef yn caniatau yr un rbagorfraint i ni ond ar ei delerau ei bun. Nid oes un gwaith wedi dirywio i'r fath raddau ag amaethyddiaeth. Mewn deng mlynedd ar hugain y mae £ 2,000,000,000 wedi ei golli i amaethyddiaeth. Ni wrteithir y tir fel cynt. Y mae dros 1,000,000 wedi eu taflu allan o waith. Oddiar 1873 y mae dros bedair miliwn o erwau, a arferai fod dan driniaeth, bellach wedi ei droi yn dir dori. Y mae y Gyllideb yn gosod trethi trymion yn ychwanegol ar y tir-feddianwyr sydd yn rhwym o ddylanwadu yn niweickol ar bawb sydd yn ymwneyd a'r tir. Codir rhenti y ffermwr. Bydd cynyrchion amaethyddiaeth yn ddrutach. Gan y goddefir i nwydd. an gwledydd tramor i gystadlu yn ddirwystr yn ein marcbnad gartrefol, GORFODIR Y FFERMWYR HWYTHAU I GYNILO TRWY LEIHAU NIFER EU GWEITHWYR A. GOSTWNG EU CYFLOGAU. Y mae baich y trethi a ddygir yn awr gan y tir yn fwy nag y medr y tir ei ddwyn. Dygir mwy na gwerth £50,0000 nwyddau amaetbyddol a ffrwythau i fewn i'r ;C50,000 o nwyddan amiel, wlad hon bob blwyddyn yn ddidoll. Gellid cynyrchu rhan fawr o'r cyfanswm hwn ar ein tir ein hunain. Pleidleisiwch gan hyny dros ddiwygio'r Tollau, er mantais i'n ffermwyr a'n llafurwyr ein hunain, ac er lies i'r wlad yn gyffredinol. Peidiwch cymeryd eich dychrynu gan yr hyn a ddywedir ynghylch bwyd drud. Yn sicr, ni chymer- wch eich twyllo eto fel o'r blaen gan y twyll a'r celwydd ynghylch y dorth fach. Pan yn ceisio eich pleidleisiau yn y flwyddyn 1906, addawodd y Rhyddfrydwyr fwyd rhad a boreufwyd rhydd i chwi. Ni ddaeth y gwlcddocdd hyny eto. Y mae eich bwyd yn costio mwy i chwi heddyw nag a wnai o dan lywodraeth Undebol yn 1905. Ni wna cynlluniau arianol y Sosialwyr ostwng pris angen- rheidiau bywyd yr un ffyrling. Y mae y ffaith ein bod yn bresenol yn ymddibynu yn llwyr ar wledydd estronol am ein bwydydd yn rhoddi y gallu iddynt hwy i benderfynu'r pris. Agorwch eich llygaid i weled yr hyn sydd oreu er eich lies. 'Does dim yn y Gyllideb a ddyga yr un erw o dir dan wrtaith, neu a'ch cefnoga i gymeryd mewn Haw eto y gwaith o fagu ceffylau a gwartheg. Ein meddyginiaeth ni yw, cynnyrchu yn y wlad hon j yr hyn a brynwn yn awr oddiwrth wledydd tramor; i gynorthwyo pobl i bryuu eu tir eu hunain,—i ddyfod yn berchenogion yn hytrach nag yn ddeiliaid Cynghorau. Y mae hyn wedi ei ddwyn oddiamgylch yn llwyddianus yn yr Iwerddon gan y Land Purchase Act. Os gellir rhoddi benthyg miliynau i Wyddelod gwrthryfelgar, yn sicr y mae genych chwi hawl i ofyn yr un telerau fel Cymry teyrngarol, duwiolfrydig. Pleidleisiwch dros ddiwygio'r tollau, dros greu tyddin-feddianwyr drwy'r holl wlad, dros chwareu teg ac nid ffafriaeth. Diogelir gan y Radicaliaid berchenog cyfoethog llongau, pob un sydd yn dal patent, a chwmnioedd cyfoethog cocoa a thybaco. Sefwch dros delerau cyffelyb i chwi eich hunain. Bydd dosbarth gweithiol Cymru yn twyllo eu hunain os gwrthodant gefnogi dynion sydd yn awyddus i roddi i'r gweithiwr safle o sicrwydd ac annibyniaeth nas gall y Wladwriaeth a Sosialaeth byth roddi iddo, ond yn unig a fydd yn bosibl pan y bydd y gweithiwr yn berchen ar y tir a wrteithia. Nis gellir mewn anerchiad fel hon gyffwrdd ag ymylon, heb son am fyned i fewn i fanylion maes helaetb gweithgarweb yrUndebwyr. Digon yw dweyd. y bydd iddynt nid yn unig barhau rhoddi Old Age Pensions, ond gwnant eu goreu hefyd i alluogi hen bobl a dderbyniant dal tlodi i gael Pensions, a hyny pan yn 65 oed ac nid 70. Yn sicr, nis gall unrhyw Ryddfrydwr rhesymol a chymmedrol o'r fath a ddilynai Mr. Gladstone, dderbyn cynygion arianol sydd yn hollol wrthwynebol i'r egwyddor sylfaenol ar ba un y gosododd seiliau trethyddiaeth genedlaothol sef darparu ar gyfer anghenion y flwyddyn, gosod y trethi yn deg a chyfiawn yn ol y gallu i dalu, ac nid yn ol y ffynhonell o ba un y derbynir yr arian. Prif ddiffygion y Gyllideb ydynt- Y bydd yn foddion i greu llai yn lie mwy o waith. Nid yw yn carfarfod a'r diffyg arianol yn y gyllid. Nid Cyllideb yw mewn gwirionedd. 0 dan rith mesur arianol-y mae yn cynwys mesurau nad ydynt arianol. Y mae yn dihysbyddu adnoddau y wlad-a ddylent gael eu cadw gyferbyn ag amser Rhyfel. Nid yw yn gwneyd darpariaeth ddigonol yn y fyddin a'r llynges ar gyfer amddiffyn y wlad. Y mae addewid y Radioaliaid o roddi Llywodraeth Gartrefol i'r Iwerddon, fel breib i enill pleidleisiau y Gwyddelod, nid yn unig yn ddinystriol i anrhydedd a sefyllfa y Deymas Gyfunol, ond yn golygu hefyd I fradychiad y Protestaniaid teymgarol yn yr Iwerddon ar orchymyn y blaid Genedlaethol, yr hon sydd ar bob argyfwng pwysig yn hanes ein, gwlad wedi cydym- deimlo a'i gelynion. Bydd pob Ymneillduwr yn Nghymru a rydd ei bleidia a dros Lywodraetb Gartrefol i'r Iwerddon yn pleidleisio dros fradychu ei frawd Protestanaidd i ddwylaw y Pabyddion sydd yn y mwyafrif. Y mae yr ymosodiad presenol ar Dy'r Arglwyddi wedi ei fwriadu i guddio hawliau anghyfreithlawn mwyafrif damweiniol yn Nhy'r Cyffredin. Egwyddor sylfaenol ein cyfansoddiad gwleidyddol yn y wlad hon ydyw, na ddyled trethu heb gydsyniad y wlad, ac mai'r bobl eu hunain yn y pen draw sydd i benderfynu. Ffol ac afresymol yw dweyd fod y Llywodraeth bresenol wedi cael gorchymyn oddiwrth y bobl mewn perthynas i gynllun hollol newydd o drethi, na chlywid j un gair o son am dano ar adeg yr Etholiad Cyffredinol diweddaf. Tra yn awyddus i symud unrhyw gam o ddyoddefir gan Ymneillduwyr mewn rhanau o'r wlad lie nad oes ond un ysgol, fy marn benderfynol i yw y dylid dysgu plant yn ffydd eu rhieni gan athrawon sydd yn credu yr hyn a ddysgant, Gwrthwynebaf hyd yr eithaf unrhyw ymdrech a wneir i ddadgygylltu yr Eglwys yn Lloegr neu yn Nghymru. Y mae ohwareu teg i ffermwyr ac i les goreu amaethyddiaeth dyogelwch masnach a llafur yn ngwyneb cystadleuaeth annheg-amddiffyniad rhyddid crefyddol a gwladol-cyfanrwydd y Deyrnas Gyfunol a goruchafiaeth y Fyddin a'r Llynges. yn dibynu yn hollol ar ddychweliad i'r Senedd plaid Undebol gref a democrataidd.

FROX" a report which the Local Government Board issued on Monday it would seem that England is growing a more and more healthy place to live in a- the years go on. Some diseases, like the once dreaded typhus are almost totally extinct, while small-pox too has been practically stamped out but. for a few outbreaks that have occurred at long intervals in Bristol and a few other seaport tow us. Pulmonary tuberculosis continues to be one of the chief scourges of the nation. In 1903 the average death-rate in England and Wales was as low as 14.7 pet thousand. In seventy-eight great towns, including London, it was, on the average, 15.8, wlillo it was only 14.7 in 142 smaller towns, and 13.8 in urban and rural dis- tricts. Of the rural districts two per cent, had a doith-rate of from 10 to 12.5. In others the figure went up to 17, and even 20 per 1,000. More than one-fifth of the deaths were these of infants in their first year. This means a death-rate- of 121 per 1,000. Abnormal infant mortality is the g roat disgrace of this country. The medical offi. cers of the Local Government Board are making inquiries into this sad state of things, and also with regard to tuberculosis in order to see whether some ueans of k-rjsening such evils can- not be suggester. Foreign diseases, like plague and cholera, were kept out during the year 1908, and there was an improvement in J ndia ,as well. Tn the province of Punjab alone 640,00'; fewer deaths occurred than in the previous jear. [ The more people learn to appreciate the import- ance of good sanitary arrangements, the faster wi I! our death-iate go on diminishing.
By this time most of us are growing rathor weary of certain election topics, but it may be inst ruc- tive to some, readers if we add a few remarks to what has already been said in this column on the subject of black bread. One may touch on the. matter without any fear of exciting political ani mosity, for every reasonable ipan in England knows that not a single vote will be influenced by what people eat or do rot eat in Germany. Rye bread is largely used in Yorkshire and other places in the northern parts of our own island- Some months ago a friend of ours was offered some rye bread as a favour by an obliging heal waiter in one of the best hotels in York City. J Protected Germar-y uses chiefly black bread, whtl\. in protected France people prefer to have it white. Again, in Free Trade Holland, as in Ger- many, almost al! classes insist on having their Llack bread, while in protected Switzerland al- most everyone prefers it white. So it is pretty clear that Frae Trade and Protection have no very intimate connection with the colour of the bread used in the countries where one cr the ot her pre/ails. It is ,3S we have said, a. matter ofltaste. li may also be repeated that with most people the love of ryo bread is more or less an acquired taste, as few of those who have eatea. wheat all their lives like the taste of lye at first trial. In ft-ct, rye bread is rot black it is scarcely as dark as what is here called Hovis bread. The black bread exhibited at certain election, meetings is a different article, and. one which the Germans regar d as a positive luxury. Workmen do not get the chance of eating it. It is called Pumpernickel As the latter is ex- pensive, and quite out of the reach of the Ger- man working man it is right that we should con- fine our attetition; to rye bread. Now the Lan- cet," our leading medical paper, has jusb been writing on this ery matter, and from its remarks. one may conclude that leading doctors in Eng- land, as well as in Denmark, Holland, and Ger- many, attach a high value to black (rye) bread. A curious falh.cy," says the" Lancet," has been going the rounds of certain political squab- Ming this w eek to the effect that the term black bread implies a kind of famine food, whereas in several civilised countries it is just as much tha stiple and normal article of diet as is our white loaf.' The article then goes on to enumerate some of the useful qualities of rye bread. It keeps fresh longer than white head, and when once the favour of rye broad is appreciated, or- dinary white I read seems 'nonotorous because of its comparative tastelessness, and so it is com- mon to find the rye bread eater demand blaci-z breid wheiever he can get it, and in whatever country he may happen to be. We are further assured that in the event of a shortage in the whaat supply the breach could be repaired by the use cf rye without hardship," and without any offence necessarily to gustatory susceptibili- ties." The general election will cost the country a good deal, and probably bring few advantages such as the political leaders talk about, but if it should be the means of teaching us to eat rye broad it v ill not have boen fought in vain.
SOME people fear racing, some motoring, some football-playing, some dancing, and so on, be- cause of the evils which are liable to accompany these frivolous forms of recreation. Indeed. there are men who would suppress then, alto- gether as carnal pleasures." One individual has a horror of one thing, ind another of some c"liferent thing. To us the general election has been a source of anxiety ever since it was first talked about; for the oiating," the scheming. the drinking, the lying, and the general topsy- turve\ don of the thing arc more than the weak heads of average men can bear without serious danger to their moral tnd mental well-being, In order to ward off such dangers from our read- er; wo have charitably endeavoured to occupy their minds with other than ejection n alters. The election thty cannot Giiito avoid it is always with them and around them. Ne\ ertholess, it. occurred to us that much good iright be done if they could he induced to spare only part of their thoughts for things which had no very obvious bearing on the political situation. There wou!] st,rely be less tendency to monomania. Accord- ingly while their guiles ir. temporal and spiritual n attars were, picturing to then tho downfall of the House of Lord, the possible colla,pse of the British Empire, the cruelty of h-ndowners and publicans, the villany of the .lumping foreigner, et hoc genus omne, we have been trespassing on a higher domain, which seemed temporarily vac- ant. and have been preaching in our humble way about, the end of the world. If the world were in fact corni ig to an end in a few months, certainly the thought of small debacles, like the dissolution of the House of Lords,, or the dumpers, or even the British Empire, would not prey so severely on people's intellects as to endanger their sanity. How far our well-meant efforts have borne fruit it would be difficult to judge, but we are deter- mined to persevere. Now if inyone thinks that the early consummation of the uiiiversa is too improbable to make a serious appeal to a prac- tical nian's reflections in the pre-sent" crisis," there is yet another lofty question which may be worthy of our consideration. It is a rather old question, namely, Is there life .n Mars ? Lately some eminent British astronomers have been ridiculing this notion as being quite improbable, or at least not proven "—very far from proven. In fact, they would have us believe that the canals on Mars are like those visions, which cana l s on Mars are I-L "youthful poets dream on summer eve by haunted stream." Professor Lowell, though an Ameri- can; is not a mere sensationalist. He has made notable discoveries in astronomy, and proved that he is very deeply versed in that noble science. Now Professor Lowell maintains, not only that there are already, or have been, canals on Mars, but also that the Martian3 are digging tvo addi- tional canals. What a bombshell to drop down into a coterie of old-fashioned astronomers I The ffJroo which is producing the nov phenomena can I only be described, he declares, as animate will." fhe Professor seems to be in no way .sur- prised at this discovery, which, he tells us, several besides himself have observed, because new can- aili on Mars are no novelty at Flagstaff Obser- vatory, inasmuch as at least 400 have been dis- covered there in the past fifteen years. To ob- serve, however, a canal now in tlio sense that it had never existed njitcrlorly, & to provo the fact, is an astronomic detection of a different order. and one the significance of which speaks for it self." Well, certainly, yes; we cordially agree in accepting it as significant. Professor Lowell is good enough to explain what took place at his great observatory on Sept. 30. When, on that date, the region of the Syrtis Major came into \iew, after its periodic hiding of six weeks, two striking canals were evident to the east of the Syrtis in places where no canals l'ad ever pre- viously been seen. Not only was their appearance unprecedented, but the canals themselves were the most conspicuous ones on that part of the disc." Ho examined all previous records, and established the fact that no human eye had ever seen these two canals previously. The canals are not simply new to us, but canals now to Mars. Vow, what do they imply? The Professor an- swers In form they are like all the other canals —narrow, regular lines of even width throughout, running with geometrical precision from definite points to another point, where an oasis is located. The oasis resembles all other oases. They par- take therefore of all the peculiar features of the canal system, features which make it impossible of natural creation—that is, of being the result of any purely physical forces of which we have cog- nisance." It is very wonderful, though not a question of practical politics. If so great a man as Goethe let himself be so deeply engrossed in an important chendcal experiment that his friends could not induce him to listen to news of the French Revolution, then at its most excitinp, stage, surely it is not unreasonable +hat some of us should pause in the midst of the general elec- tion to consider this evidence of the existence of animate will in Mars, our nearest neighbour in the solar system. It will possibly be a comfort to Tariff Reformers to realise the improbability of either German airships or Yankee dumpers over reaching the banks of the Martian canals.
