There was a good attendance. The subjects comprised in the window are representa- tive of the objects, life and character of the Christian priests. The top light has a picture of the Lamb &1I.it,ba-i been aldia." The three large circular lights have figures of angels bearing shields severally emblazoned with the emblems of faith, hope, and charity. The upper portion of the six greater lights are divided into three pioturss of two lights each, intended to exemplify the Crat proclamation and gradual spread of the gospel. su further carrying on tutgene,al design of the window,the lower portions of the ais: .great liehts are filled with tbe figuies of the twelve apostles.

The same journal adds :_u Passing into the second room we come upon some remsrkably fine drawing. by Elias Bancroft, as to which there can be no mistake about the excellency of the workmanship. The artist is tnaking grest strides, and it it not too much to say that his works are an ornament to the exhibition.

Mr Samuel Robert presided.-The Rsv. J. Raymond gave a detailed report of the proceedings of a committee appointed by the Jllllt public meeting, and stated that the Conservatives, or tbe Church party had cam. to no definite arrangements, but hat only nominated two members. Consequently it rested with that meeting to say what should be done.—Mr T. W. Griffith observed that the persons nominated were willing to withdraw in favour of the present members uf the Board if the Church party had only nominated two (applause).—Mr Samuel Edwards was quite willing to fall in with this arrangement. It should, however, be remembered, that if another vacancy occurred on tbe Boari, there was one religious body unrepresented.^—Mr C. R.

Griffith also agre9d to the arrange- ments for this time,—Mr Roger Williams, in conse- quence of tbe uncalled for insinuations thrown out by Mr R. Roberta, said he would resign ill favour of Mr Spinther James.—Mr Spinther James ssid that lie did not want anyone to put upbisplace for him. He dil not wish to be on the Llandudno School Board, and there was no better man on that Board thau Mr Roger Wil- liams (applau.a).N] r John Jones, The Cedars, said he believed they could hot, with honour, deviate from the resolution come to at the last meeting. Whatever they did, let things be done honourably (hear, hear, and cheers).—Mr E. H. Williams rose to, proposa that the ininuteaof the last meeting be confirmed.—Mr W. O. Parry tbetl withdrew his amendlDeat.- The Chairman observed amidst much laughter that he wae sure there was no bstter Turkish bath than to be a chairman of a School Bond meeting.—In seconding the motion of Mr Williams, Mr Woodcock remarked that when he acceded to the request that be should become a member of the School Board, he distinctly stated at a public meeting that he would not represent any political party, or any religious body (cheers). When Mr Davies (Bapti.t) resigned, Mr Edge, who happened t. be a fellow-worshipper of tbe samo congregation as he (the Chairman) waa nominated by the Liberal party.

Sale of Intoxicating Liquors on Sundays.—A. petition in favour of Mr Stevenson's motiou in Parliament was presented.-The Chairman said tbat, owing to the di.. solution, the motion would not be put to the present House, and therefore the Guardians need not at present take any steps in the matter.-This view was concurred iu by the Board. UNION EXFHNDITURK AN UNFAVOURABLE CONTRAST. ? Mr Yorke wished to call the attention of the Board to the fact that the house was full, in fact there were more inmates than it ought,contll.in. The building was erected for one purpose and converted )to another. It was the intention that the wockbouee should act as a test to dis- criminate between sham and real poverty. How could they offer the house now to anyone applying for relief 1 They had only two eoursee to pursue—add to their building at a greai cost, or else get rid of the old people, those who were in health, by giving them outHoor rolief, and be more cireful in tbe future. Now they act the part of baby farmers, thereby enabling them to use that house ts a test. Tbe fact was the union workhouEe was nothing but act almshouse for the aged, a hoapitii fir the sick, and a Bcboolhouse for children. We are rually, continued Mr Yorke. now as regards this union, under the old law. We must give out of door elief, as weoannot offer the house to one single pauper in tbe whole union. I must read what Mr Murray Browne said here two or three months since If tiio Guardians (St. Asapb) looked at the common charges they would find that out of £5501) odd spent in the half-year £a2CO odd went in out relief. It they wanted to effect economy that was, the point they should lo(,k at. Ail ,real destitution wss only to be relieved in the house. His experience taught him that outdoor relief was not Rood for the pour, as it only led to drunk- eetess and thriftleasons. Ali long as men knew tftey could come to tne bouse and get out relief they .11d spend money in "rin". Why on earth should a man save money if he knew that wen be got old lie oould out relief I They tsad industrious people to support thevagibond who spends his money at the public house. Outdoor re'ief was not really for the benefit of the poor. The humanitarian argument was all very well in some esses, but would not apply as a gentral principle. Th,y heard a good deal about de- pression in tritde-foreign competition. He (tr M. Browne) thought tbegreat thing England had to grapple with was the drunken habits of the lower classes. Coo. sidering the way in which the working cla«se« are weighted with drink it would be difficult for this country to maintain her grousd and compete with foreign coun- tries. The amount of pauperism throughout England Was a heavy buiden, but it was comparatively light when one considered the enormous amount of wages of working men spent spent in drunkenness, and giving outdoor relief simply encouraged drunkenness if tbey made the drnofcen man a recipient as well as the eowrmac. It was the crutllest kindness to I he poir to goon with the system of out lelief v-ry mub." Mr Yorke entirely agreed with Mr Murrsy Biowue, A6 there was no doubt that drink was the father of pauperism. In Locdou and other large towns masons, bricklayers, olssterere, and others earning 35s a week and more, as 00D AS a frost cime, and ihey were out of work, tbey bad n-ithing to fall back n pon, and they were half starved or went to the pawntroker, or else sought ralief at the expense of the community at large the ssne »tnoni!et labourers here, ns soon as they are out of work they apply fur relief iUlUolley or kind, whertas if they would only save the mnne, they spend in the public hoase it would enabli them to tide over the evil day, and to weather the at-nrm. Ther. is no doubt tbat drink and pauperism are the two darkest blots liD our national escutcheon. He was once chaffing with a I'renohjoiB io Parii about the constant change of their national emblems, their crowned heeds, republics, white flags, red fiigs, and so forth, and said we have adhered for more than two hundred years to the crown, tbe lion, and the unicorn, and our national motto. The Frenchman said, Oh, yes, true that is all very well, but you ought to have depicted behind your national armit the drunkard and the pauper, yonr national siu as, rsgards tbe former, and your want of thrift a. regards the latter." There is no such wait of thrift in Europe ae in these realms, and as long as we give outdoor relief almost indiscriminately it must and will continue. Th. Scotch say that the poor law has been the death knell of every provident habit. A few dsys after Mr Murray Browne spoke as aforementioned be attended at Ruthin Board of Guardians. He (Mr H. Browne) said "he had been looking over tbe master's books, and noticed that there was no increase in tbe number of paupers in the house." This was a contrast to some of the neighbouring unions, where thtf beuse was getting inconveniently full. There seemed to be a general impression abroad that by reducing the amount given in out relief the number of indoor paupere would be considerably increased, but the condition of things at Ruthin showed tbat such was not the esse. In some other unions althougl1 there was no decrease, and poe. sibly in some, esses .an increase in out relief, there was nc decrease in the number of indoor paupers. Having these things in mind, one could not help thinking that strict rules with regard to giving relief were beginning to train people in some sort to cultivate habits of thrift, and te be provident. The chairman (the Rev. the Warden) said that four years ago, who, the guardians at Kuthin inaugurated a reform iuithe manner of giving out relief, and struck of fsome £ 900 or £ 1000, they observed that there really had been no increase of in- door paupers. How comes all this at Ruthin ? There must be fir bett r management there than here. Mr Yot ke had looked into the two half-yearly statements of St. Asaph Union and that of Rutbia from Lady Day, 1878, to Lady Day, 1879. (He bad no more recent data to go by.) Ruthin levied in the twelve months lid and fifteen-sixteenths of a penny, we 28.1, which would appear at first sight about one-half; but in fact we raise 14U per cent, more thau Ruthin from the rate- payers as regards the poor rate proper, all the county rate must be eliminated in both casts. To save trouble as regards fractions or decimals let us say that Ruthin levies 12d in the 1;, and we 23d. Now our county rato, police rate, &c., nouies to 4&,1 per annum. Say that Ruthin is the same. Rutbin 12i—4Jd—7Jd for poor rate proper. At St. Asaph 23d-4id for county rate, police rate, &e, IBid or 140 per cent., in round num- bers, more than Rutbin as regards all union charges for tbe poor. He held the printed statements in his hands to sustain his arguments and assertions. We are the most extravagant and worst-managed ii.7(ia between the Conway and the Dte. He did net allude to Conway and LJaarw.t, as be fancied a large portion of those unions include parishes in Carnarvonshire. He referred V-t Ruthin, Corwen, Wrexham, Hawarden, and Holy- well. At Ruthin they are in the forefront of the battle, contending maufully with this caucereus plague while we are hiding.in the rear, taking our ease, seeking peace and tranquillity instead of putting our shoulders to the "heel to mount up the hill of retrenchment and reform. He admitted that St. Asaph waeeomewbat more urban than Rutbin; but how comes it that St. Asaph is so beaten in economy by Wrexham, which include. Ruabon, Rhosymedre, and other populous places 1 Still, if an allowance on this score was made of 25 per cent., we should then be spending fully 115 percent, more tbau Ruthin. The half-yearly statements of all the six unions afore-mentioned are so differently drawn out that it would require a Chancellor of the Exchequer or Messrs Coleman, the accountants, to thoroughly uuipvel them. We suffer from too much red tape as a rule, but aurely there ought to be some uniform method of comparing one union with another. He then quoted a paragraph out of a London newspaper. It is pro- bable that no one crumb of bread ceusumed is otherwise than good, and not one single crumb is wastad; the waste is in the system, and a gigantic waste it is. Of every £100 paid by the ratepayers how mucla is absorbed in the maintenance of the icetitution aad its ramifications, and how very little reach: poor Hodge The undeserving and mean spirited, of whom there are pleoty in every village, who eadeavour to live upon the parish, receive relief twice as long and to thrice the amount as the hard-working, honest labourer, who keeps out to the very last momeut." Economy is courted and practised in the unions bordering on England, but at St. Asaph it is scouted and scorned. To use a homely phrase, "the proof of the pudding is io the eating." The way business is slurred over here by dividing into committees will ever be a preventive of any reform or reduction in our rates. Mr John Roborts (Geiam) said he quite concurred and supported a good deal of what Mr Yorke had said, They wanted a little more economy in conducting the business oC that union, a nHlumeut be had agitated some time since. He should be sorry to show any disrespect to tbeir chairman, who was captain 4f the ship, if he might be allowed such a comparison. The chairtnau was ciptain of that Board, and they were ia bis hands to a great extent. He was very sorry to bear Rutbin Union continually thrown into their fices as a model. He did not like it, and could not bear to beu it. He hoped it would not be done in future, or perhaps his Welsh blood might get up, and he might not be able to keep himself in order (laughter). Their Board was squal to Ruthin Board, or any other Board ill North Wales, They ought to show as mushfeonomy as Ruthin, Bangor, or Conway Union. He quite agreed with Mr Yorke that they wanted more economy at St. AMph, and he hoped they should soon turn over a new leaf in that direction (spplause). The Chairman alluded to tbe earn.etue81 Mr Yorke felt upon tbe question of economy, and he had that day presented to the guardians a very unpleasant con- ,trost. Mr Wynne went on to refer ti what he coasi- dered was at the bottom of their unnecessary large expenditure. They might call themselves a board of Guardians actiaguuder the poor law, but he maintained that in spirit they were no, hing of the 80rt-they were granting relief under tbe old parochial system. The action of the Board in going through the relief lists was no guide to the relieving officers, as under the present arrangements the guardians took no interest in a case except it came from their own parish. Cou- lequantly in some cases improvident persons obtained relief, and it was impossible to practice economy. That was the fundtmental weakness -of the Board. The business of the relief lists could not be properly and economically disposed of in two hours and a half once a fortnight. They ought to meet once a week to con aider the cases. With regard to the workhouse test, he would have that bouse only used for three purposes. For those bedridden and aged paupers who needed constant attention; and he would give no relief to any person of doubtful character unless in that house. With reference to the baby farming Mr Yorke had alluded to, he thought in many cases it was a necestily to use the house for lying-in" purposes. But still he agreed with a good deal Mr Yorke had said. Mr Yorke Money goes out of this union like water out of a sieve (laughter). The meeting then closed.
GREAT Loss or LIFK BY FIRS.—On the night of the 5th iust., a terrible fire broke out in a cotton- weaving factory »t Moscow, resulting in the death of a large number of the operatives. The fire broke out in ooe of the lower storits, and spread rapidly over so large an area before it was noticed by the men dwell- ing in the upper storirs, tenanted by some 200 persons, that descent inside the building was impossible. A rush to the safety staircase outside the building ended in its giving way and depriving the inmates of their only means of escape. Only thirtylivee were saved.

HOUSE OF COMMONS. FRIDAY.—The Irish University.— Mr Lowther said the Chancellor and Senate of the new Irish University had been appointed, but owing to tb. electione it might not be possible for the Senate ti meet for oeme time.—Mr Bourke, in reply to Mr Maclvtr, eaid there was reason to believe that the Prince of Bulgnria was actuated by the eincerest desire to give full effect to the stipulations of the Berlin Tre.tJ.- The Chancellor of the Exchequer being interrogated as to the appointment of a Minister of Commerce and Agriculture, said the matUr bad been under consideration since the passing of the resolution of last session, but the difficulties and objections to the chaflge had rather grown than diminished. The Government, however, hoped to make some improvements in the direction indicated by the resolution, although they could not g.) to its fall length. The right boo. geatleman further stated that the coat of bringing the ludian troops to Europe and back was Z796,670, the wholo of which was English expenditure, and that a further sum of £ 50,000 was in di.ptite.-Mr Fawcett subsequently moved a resolution expressing the opinion that, it was unjust to defray out of the In. dian revenues the whole of the coat incurred in the renewal of hostilities in Afghanistan. -After some discussion, in which Mr Gladstone, Mr Rathbone, Mr Mad ver, and other gentlemen took part, the amendment was rejected without a division.

I(YESDAY.-The second reading of the Parliamentary Corrupt Practices Bill was vigorously opposed by Mr Anderson, who declared that for the G)vernment to push forward such a measure in a Parliament which was practically dissolved was nothing lesi than an electioneering Vick." He moved the rejection of the bill. Sir George Campbell secoadtd the motion, and a lively debate f.ilowed.-Tho Chancellor of the Exche. qutr defended the bill; and he was followed by the Marquis of Hartingt m, who condemned the attempt to rush the treasure through, when practically there was no House to discuss it,—Ultimately the Ho.-o divided, when it was agreed by 82 to 55 to go en with the bill. The House then Ocxt into committee on the measure, and on the motiou of Mr W. Holm*, decided that the bill should not apply to Scotland or Ireland.

Tritta the eioeplion of Mr Aesheton Smith's were only j working two or three daya per week (applause). Mr Duulop advised Mr Oakeley not to forsake the men, Although be Ulight lone money by it (applause). He the speaker) considered that this alone waa a feature to be proud of. But further, Mr Dunlop was by no mean. uukcown in tbe agricultural world. He had been informed that not only was Mr Dunlop agent for Mr Oakelty's large quarry, but also managed the pro- perties of varioua large lauded proprietorl-nrloul Dublemen and other gentlemen, to the extent ef a rent- roll of half a mil ion uf money a year. The farmers preeent knew very well that whit was good for the tenant waa good for the landlord; and wee it likely that thnae gent lemea would have entrusted such a vast amouat of r, "neibility into the handa of one man unlets they knew tLut he would do justice both to the landlord aud the tenant (applause). Having said so much in the way of introducing Mr Uunlop to them, he would mentiun that the other day Mr DUDlop waa chosen by the Duke of Richmond to give his opinion on the Royal Commission to inquire into the agricultural depression. He should Dever have introduced Mr Dunlop had ho no felt heartily convinced that be would support their interest* as veil or better than any mm be knew (ihtcre). lIo felt bure they would all work heartily, becau-e be believed in Parliament Mr Duulop would be tbe ribt man in the right place (cheers). He would now tell them that their csudidate, although if elected he would sit on the Conaervatiye side of the Hous', still he would go to Parliament as a free-thinking, independent Conserva- tive. He (the speaker) liked that word" independent" better thai Liberal-Oooservative, because he hardly knew what Liberal-Conservative meant (hear, hear) An independent Conservative weuld go to the House of Commons tied to no particular party. Although Mr Dunlop would sit on the Conservative side, yet should the Conervatiy, b bring forward a me wure which did not meet with bis entire approval, be would not votn for that measure. There were some people who believed that nobody could bring forward a good measure ex- the Conservatives, and others that nothing oould be Wt 11 done unless it be carried out by the Liberals. They were none of the. infallible; they all made mis- takes. In a large realm like theirs, how could any Government go through six or seven years of office without occasionally making a slip (hear, hear). Their opponents might say—We do not like wars. He would reply that nobody liked wars, but they must remember thin England is a very small island contain- iug an enormous population, and if the people were to be hemmed in, if they could not get foreign ports open te their commerce, tbey would be soen shut in their little island! They must luterfero with foreign po'icy, but not more than they could poafibly help (applause). Those people who insiouated that the Government had been meddlirg, must recollect tint that great Crimeau war, which added 72 millions to tbe national debt, took place under a Liberal Government. But though that was the cite, and undertaken without sufficient con- sideration and thought, yet as soon as the couotry was ,e.g.g.d in it, Conservatives and Liberals joined io one to defend their country to the honour and glory of their Qieen (cheers). That treaty cost the country some of it, beat blood, and what happened during the Liberal Administration since that time • They knew very well oi the wars between Ger- many and Francs. Then the Russians took our treaty and tore it to ribbons. Our Government remained passive spectators. He maintained that owing ti that eùuduct uf tbe Government, during the last few years the Conservative Government had to interfere and tell the Russians that they might go so far, but not an atllm further (cheers) Mr Wynn went on to speak of the large majority the Liberals got in 1S68, which majority turned into a miuoiity in 1874 (laughter). There were stupid remarks going about that the "acrew" was violently applied by the U jaservatives. But to make their election doubly sure, tin Liberals borrowed a little trick from the Yankees, and broujht to England the ballot-box. What was the result of the ballot-box ? The Literal* hatched an egg which turned out to be a very different, kind of ckicken to what they expected (laugliter). That ckicken assumed Biich remarkable proportions that in a vtrYllhort time it turned the old bird ou of the neat (laughter). One would almost fancy that such an egi had been lad by the Conserva- tives (renewed laughter). 18 eunclusiou, he would ssy that they had wmmenced the campaign that night in it friendly way. Thvy had invited Conservalivti and Liberals to meet together there. They wished t, have DO hole aud corner meetings. He should like to give tbeau a hearty good shake of the band all round. Let the. fight tbe contest A8 t'aey would ride a. good TJCS across couutry (applausi). lie was not going to say a word agjinst Mr Holland., but considered Mr Dunl(,p the man who would beat represent the interest* ol the couuty (cheers). Their candidate had s^otit eo much time in looking into local taxation and th" abuse of putting all taxation on the land aid allowing large Liverpool merchants not to bear a farthing towards the IIlÜntDaUC<t of the poor, &c. He hoped tiey would nat allow the election to interfere with any of their pereonal friendships (1Pplauae). Mr A. M. Dunlop then lose tJ address the meeting. He was greeted with most enthusiastic cheering and shouts of "Donlop for ever." When silence agaiu en. sued, Mr Dllolop commenced by saying that he was 4eeply sensible of the hOD our e,.nfone,1 upon him by bringing him forward t'< contest the county, and he hoped to repres;nt it in Parlnmeut (cheers). Speaking of the foreign policy of the present G<,vernmd¡Jt, he honestly believe I that policy to be the right one for everybody conuectsd with Great Britain (cheers). 1 h--ir friends on the ocner side might tbiok the reverse, but his opinion was that if it had not been for tbe Govern- ment puttlng'their foot down when they (lid, there would hsve been a European war at the present mIl, anent (applause) Mr Duulop referred to the action of Russia in Afghanistan to distract at'e:iti n from affairs in Kurope, and said that without doubt the late Ameer was bribed by Russia. Britiebsubjètl knew that Alier must defend their pofs^ssions in whate, er part of the world those pwiessioES were (cheers). If it were not far England's extensive foreign dominions, what would becomo of her immense population 1 Their island was email, but stiil great, and they held the first plsce in the world as a commercial and gleat country. There- fore the f ireigu policy of the Government should be eupported by both Conservatives and Liberals (cheers). Take the cue of South Africa. Many from the old eojntry had glne there to settle and tbey had gone un- dr the underhndiog that the f.th-,Ialod would protect -them from the immense tribes in tbe iuterior. Those at home would have been a set of cowards if they had not ,ot,ut troops to their aid when on the point of being overrun by the blaok neighbour. He had travelled extensively in Africa, and knew the natives well. He could understand exactly how the poor Prince Imperial lost his life. The natives came upon him by stealth. Tne English must eudeavour to introduce civilisation into that country, must not allow the natives to spoil her nossessions (ch.er), They must an be pleased that the wars had ended, and must try iniitureto keep out 01 .ar. but never lH them forget that if any country insulted Et gland, she would ulways be ready to defend her rights (cheers). Leaviug the question of foreign policy, be considered that the question of greatest itnpo tanre tJ tbiecountry before the next Parliament would be the agricultural question <be*r, hear). Tbey Jinew that it was pro. posed by a Conierrative and seconded by a Liberal that a committee of ioquirg should be appointed to see how the question of depression could be dealt with. That commission was sitting, and the president, the Duke of Richmond, had invited Itiin to give evideace, but of ojurse .owing to the dissolution no; bing would now be done until tbe assembling a! Parliament, aDd .h hoped he should be able to say eowlthiog on the queotion in tbe House 01 Commons (cheers). He had the management of large landed properties in e*ery part of England and Wales, aud therefore was able to look at any .question brought forward aa oae affecting both the landed pro. prietor and the tenant farmer. They knew ii-try well tint if the iarming industries of the country suffered .enry utbr industry in the world must suffer too. After .all a1(rieultu,e was the main staple of the country (ap. plause). Whether they were townetum or lived iu the ■country they an at bave the prcluee from tbo .oil to live upon. Uslessths tenant farma? was prup-rly pro- tected with liberal covenant* either in leases or agree- ments be could Dot,cultivate tbe land to the beneit i f his fellow crd"I'.8Iin.1 to the bijiufct of himself ii, par- Ocular (hear, hear). The tensut fartters were without o.,l>t .fer;n;: very much from watlOp which had taken place during tne last few years (bear, loar, aivl "pplau1). Many fa.mer. bad spoken to I i01 on the subject during the lat tllfn r three mantha, and bo | Uimrly stated it a8 hie practical view that the question J would have t I be taken up sooner or later by the Legis-^ lature (obeere) The tasatfon of the country was dix- proportionate aliogettwr on real property. It did not matter whether it was on landed ur bouee pwperty all t-xew were put upon property. He did not mean to say be was going to solve (he^uestlon that oipt. But he would ask why should not the people who bad got tbei' mickey quietly invested io conso's, railway, and eanal fcU*r«s pay a proportion ? (fiemr. bearl. He believt-d some such solution as that wo il^ lied the qu-sti 10 It must no d'ubt be roet, and if they en. t. usted their intereeta w hiua iu Parliament he would pledge himself to use all bit influence to see that tax- ation is properly pr-portiooed (cbe, r,). His interests iu thi otier part. of tbe couuty were inioing interests, "f hic'" he would talk to the elects rs in that district. Hø th'ju^ht no mal) could repreeeut. ths quarry interest. tetter than himself. The allusion the chairman bad luide to Mr Oakeley'i quarry being worked ail day* per week was quite correct. That was not done by reducing the number of men, as not a single man left the quarries (applause). The difficulty had now ""0 overcome, and trade was certainly on the revival (aoplause). It was the greatest nonsense in the world to u:1t about the Ooverument in power affecting tl.r state of trade. Trade had been depressed and was r.riviu¡ with a ConNrvatirø Government po. So-i- boo works he re t rwatol in YorksikUv Z J wer b"a &Dl8 bOil 1'o,b b. "J ia YorUåir8 W power. ehut up, but they had started again now, and it had been I the same tbiqg all over the oountry. He believed thsy ¡ had "turned tit., die," and prosperous times were ahead (cheers). If they returned him to Parliament, he would do his beat for the two great interest* ef the ooudty- the mining and agricultural into, ets (cheers). Speaking of Mr 0. Morgan's Burial Bill, personally he thoroughly went into the views of his Noooonformi*t brethren (cheers). If they inquired about him, they would find tbat he never made the slightest difference between a Churchman and a Dissenter oor Roman Catholic, because he did net tbiuk any business man bad a right to inter- fere with religious matters. Let them look at euch matters broadiy; and if be could assist in pauinc a bill acceptable to the country at large he would support it (ohe«r»). There was another question to which he should give bit cordial support-the closing of publiohousts on Sundays (cheers). If any of them Wanted a glass of beer uo Sunday they could buy it on Saturday nigbt. It would not take much harm if put into a bottle, es- pecially if they put a cork in (laughter and applause). Then with regard to that valuable institution at Aber. yo-witka-tbe Oulversity College-be did not see any reason why Wales ahoul I be made an exception to any other part of tbe country (cheers). He did not see why the Goverom-nt should nut give a very baudsomegrant te that University and he would say that, if elected, he would use every meantl he could with a great many members he knew in the House on both sides to get the Government-whichever it may be-to give Wale4 a grant for tbeir Uuiversity Coliege (cheers). He would close by saying that he had had a great experience in the world,and if be oould b8 of use to them in the House of Commons, it would be his earnest desire to work at hard as he could. He came before them as a business man. He did not pretend to be anything else than a business man representing the interests of capital and labour, of the landowner and tenant (cheers). He came forward as a working man (cheers). They had beard his views, and tbose views he should be glad to carry in'o effect, if tbey only gave him the oppor- tunity. Mr Dunlip resumsd bis seat amid loud cheer- ing. The Chairman then caUed upon the Rev. Ellis Ro- berts to give the meeting a rC5wni of the candidate's remarks in Welsh. He was not going to ask the rev. gentleman to make a speech of his own, as he (the chair- man) dil not approve of introducing the clargy on a poiitical platform, and he hoped the other side would ttdopt the same course. Addresses were subsequently delivered by other gen- tlemen, aod resolutions passed approving of Mr Dunlop » candidature. The meeting Wad a d acid ed success.
