MR JOHN DILLON AT MERTHYR, A large political meeting was held on Monday night at the Drill Hall, Merthyr, principally for the purpose of hearmg an address from Mr John Dillon. Mr Gwilym James, in the unavoidable absence of Mr D. A. Thomas, occupied the chair. The atteudance on the platform included Mrs Gwilym James, Alderman D. Davies, Mr Rhys Davies, Mr Griffith George, J.P. (Aberdare), Mr Patrick Mansfield, Mr W. Morgan, J.P., Mr J. Bowen, Mr J. M. Berry, Mr H. W. S"uMiey, Mr Edmunds, Mr John Vaughan, Mr T. Callaghan, Cardiff Mr J. Williams, London House; Mr D. W. Jones, Mr Valentine Watson, Mr Joseph Williams. The Chair- man having given a brief introductory addnH", Mr PATRICK MANSFIKLD moved an expression of unabated confidence in the present Home Rule Government, aud the belief that the time had come when an effort should be made to deprive the House of Lords of the power to veto the wishes of the people. Mr ALFRED EDMONDS seconded the motion, which was carried unanimously. Mr JOHN DILLON, upon rising to acknowledge the resolution, met with a hearty reception. He said the National party should ramain bound together in the bonds of union until the National cause was brought to a successful issue, because if there was one lesson which the student of Irish history must draw it was this, that so long as the nation was united so long the Irish cause advanced to triumph. (Applause.) The only cause—the main cause—that had brought suffering to Ireland in the past had been úivisions among her sons. He reviewed the historical position of the Liberal Unionists during the past 10 years, and said Ireland could never be peaceful, and he wAs going to say it never ought to be peaceful, until It was tro/erned by Irishmen on Irish principles, on Irish ground. (Applause.) They were peace- ful and quiet now, because hope bad been given ttiem of the best medicine that had ever been applied to the dis. turbances and troubles of a people The Irish people could be led, at all events they would not be driven by coercion. They would all work in be hope that the sad coercion that had marked the union of their country was drawing to a close. They trusted the verdict at the next election would go upon right lines, but even if by some local circumstances or any change in the tide of public opinion in the country the Tories were to win the next election, that would not check their efforts to advance the Irish cause. They would only be in for another period of storm. Alderman D. DAVIKS moved a hearty vote of thanks to Mr D Hon. The motion was seconded Ii by Mr JOHN VALKSTINK, and carried. Air Dillon briefly responded.
