Editor of The TninuMS:
in reply to Chairman Powells' communi
cation In your (una of this date I Will say:
First, That it there were any of the mem
bers of tbe executive so remittee who
signed tbe petition and did not mean to
buck it UP in good faith, they should have
applied to tho person or persona who pro
cured their signatures and asked to have
their signatures stricken off, According
to tho chairman's statement he would try
to make the public believe that the sign
ers, or some of them, looked at tho matter
in tbo right Of child's play; but I consider
that it i importuui business, it appears
to me that the individuals who signed the
petition ure iuteiiigjnt enough to havo de
cided before Signing it whether they
wanted the committee called together or
not. 1 certainly could not treat (hem m
the light ihiu they are simpletons.
Second, All the candidates who havo
conversed uith me In regard to culling tun
county committee together, have expressed
their anxiety to havo a meeting of the
committee and fix a time fur holding the
Third, The worthy chairman would like
to make tbe public believe that l and ot her
members of tbe exeontive committee had
fixed in the petition a time for holding the
convention, is not so, neither do the
exeontive committee desire to usurp the
powers or the county of general
lee; but they desire to bo fair, and havo
fair treatment iu return. All llmr. the pe
tition requostod was that the chairman
call iho county committee together for the
purpose of affixing a time and place for
holding tli conatv convention tu nomi
nate a omniy ticket. I am of tho opinion
from all tbe knowlegde that 1 have been
able to obtain that tho chain., an would
not have made a call now had he not found
public opinion so much against him.
Fourth Pour years ago the convention
was held on the 1 7th of June. Two years
ago tho convention was called together ou
the Snd day of July, and the tiuie for hold
ing the convention fixed for the hiih of
Fifth I did till In tho date fixing the
time for culling tho committee together,
which gave the chairman nin days' time
to notify the committee and get them tc-
gotner. Tho Season that such date was not
placed in the petition originally was, as I
have been informed, that not know lug how
long u time it would take to see the differ
ent members, it would be better to leave
that part of the petition blank until a suf
ficient number of signatures had bean pro
Cured, In conclusion, 1 for one, am not trying
to force an issue, bat I want tan- play, as
do the majority of tbe Republican party
iu this county. And thoy number into tho
thousands who will not submit to dicta
tion or subterfuge. There is no ono v. ho
will wnrk harder for tlio party than I
when things are fairly and honorably con
ducted, lily record and tho record oi the
worthy of the Republican party
is somewhat before tbepoblia and if he
wants to go down deeper and into details
I shall bo oleiue I to havo a fair and im
partial committi e app tinted to make such
nn investigation aad then the public can
judge mora fully who is and ha, been the
most loy.-.l to nis purtv.
A part of the Republican party rules,
rule 4. section 1, reads as follows: "That
the executive committee shall have the
Immediate charge, conduct and Control of
all i any details preparatory for and wld'.o
an ell JtiOU is pending," It was under tills
rule that tbe executive committee peti
tioned the chairman to m.iko tbe call.
Public sentiment has, in my opinion, forced
Ihe chairman to make tho call for July 14,
so tbe executive committee bai withdrawn
their call tor .June li I.
Very respectfully,
Jons b. Pillows.

Editor of Tin: Tnuii xr:
Bear Bit! In tonight's Truth thoroisa
statement from mo referring to Mr. Pow
ell's version of what no calls my refusal
to sisn his call for a meeting of the Repub
lican county committee which I wish yon
would print. It is as follows: "The cir
cumstances of that call iih 1 understand
tii6in and on which l acted in obedience to
my duly ns secretary arc, that Mr, Powell
refuted to recognise the petition of six
teen members oi the executive committee,
Iu that event it became my duty (in the
absence fiuiu the county o.' the viio chnir
inuuj tOgoVbead. lui.i so promptly and
sent out tho call. Later iu tbo day
aftor my rail had been mailed
to the committeemen Mr, Powell ap
parently repented his former action and
prepan d cub, fixing tbe lime two weeks
later than staled in the petition of tho
Executive committee, AS 1 have no in
terest In the tall whatever more than to
see that it is made and uo interest iu the
date of the convention, and an I see that
Mr. Powell now shows a disposition to
heed in substance the request of the Ex
ecutive Committee under whom 1 act. 1
gladly rescind tbo call sent out by me. It
is not my wish iu m y way to do injus
tice to any one, nor do I propose that in
justice shall ii,- done to my friends."

Rjv. a p, Williams, pastor of the
largest Congregational church in North
Wales, that of Holyhead, and regarded
as one of the loading proachors of that
donomination, is on a visit to this oily.
Ho is a native of Anglesea and began
preaching when 17 years of age. Hav

present month, his remarks to n Ti:nt

With regard to the Welsh disestablish
ment bill, but at the present tiino Mr.
Williams thinks that the Liberals of
Wales are generally satiofieu with Lord
Etosebery's sssurtnoe, He agrees with
tho sentiments contained in THE Tliih
'nu's Welsh notes of Saturday a to the
into of tho bill in the home of lord,
and just before leaving the old country
he slates that Ellis Joust Griffiths, the
member-elect from At.glisen, informed
him that In all probability the general
election will take place in the forth
coming winter, when the issue will be
fought on tho Irlsb home rnl bill und
tbe Welsh disostablishm-ut bill.
Qnestionsd as to the probable result
of tao election and the return of the
Liberals to power, Mr. Williams oaid
he would not venture mi opinion.
With rvgard to the pending vaoancv
In Carnarvon county, Mr. Williams
itated that William Jones, profesjor
nt Oxford college, had been nominated
bnt it wns not clear that the other
Liberal candidate would withdraw. If
no settlement it arrived at, the seat
will bo won by the Conservatives.
Mr. Williams is dsligbted with the
iiiiiirniOcont Welsh churches iu the
Htatvs and the display of the character
istic energy of tho Welih people in re
ligions matters, and ho is also agreea
bly surprised at tho excellence of Welsh
singing in America, and this coining
