Battle of the Wards. COUNCLLLOR JKNKINS ON DARKEST CARDIFF.* Un the delivery of Mr Grant's lecture on tho above subject to a crowded audience, on Saturday evening, at the Grangetown Hall, Mr Samuel Mildon, who presided, said that Mr Grant had turned his bull's eye upon a very daik spot, and he hoped would keep it there until other people had seen the circumstances in like manner. He felt sure that when the evil was seen in all its hideonsness and the conscience of Cardiff was roused, it would not be long before this question was dealt with, He had no hesitation in saying—and he was nob saying it without experience, for he had sat three years on the Board of Guardians—thab 80 per cent. of the pauperism was due to drink. Councillor John Jenkins, in proposing a vote of thanks to the lecturer, said that the gratitude of all right. thinking people was due to Mr Grant for his courageous denouncement of vice and crime, and he could corroborate all that the lecturer ha.d said that evening. The evils which existed could not be exaggerated, and he appealed strongly to the parents of children present to send men on the Council who would purify the town and so make it possible for the children to gcutv up pure and manly, The lecturer, in acknowledging thanks, said they were tired of appealing to the people who had the power to stop these evils, but wouldn't; and now they had turned to the citizens, the voters, the Council-makers" of Cardiff; and he earnestly aalced them, whatever their party or whatever their creed, to return men who have the moral and sanitary welfare of the town at heart. If the man put forth by their own party would. not go in for reforms, let them support the opposite candidate TEMPERANCE WORKERS' RESOLU- TION. At the ordinary Blue Ribbon Meeting held in Wood-street Chapel, on Saturday evening, Mr George Shephord presided, and there was a large attendance. The Rev. Charles Ayliffe, of New- port, delivered a very stirring address, full of good advice to. workers and private members. During the meeting a resolution relating to the fortli. coming municipal election was unanimously passed calling the attention of members of Cliristian Churches and of the various sections of the temperance party in Cirdiff to the municipal contests now being fought, in which the friends of the liquor traffic n.nd the opponents of Sunday closing especially # were endeavouring to gain supremacy in the Town Council, and strongly urgmg noon all friends of the oause of temperance and purity to rally round those candidates in the various wards who were prepared to oppose any interference with the bein-ficent advantages of the Sunday Closing Act;, as we, !I;Ls to support all efforts made to reduce the tern potions to intemperance, and urging all to work to prevent the return Oil Friday next of any candidate who is either (hrectly or indirectly interested in the Liquor Tr.ifEc.
