THE ANNUAL MUNICIPAL STRUGGLE. Not in the whole annals of local muni- cipal conflicts have we witnessed such a quiet encounter as the present District Council Election in Aberdare. The only contested ward is the Gadlys or No. 2 Ward, where the old member, Mr. James H. James, is opposed by Mr. W. Harper, the nominee of the Aberdare Trades and Labour Council. This will doubtless prove to be a close fight, and neither can- didate is likely to register a very large majority over his opponent. But al- though the conflict is keen it is not as yet attendant with great excitement. Moun- tain Ash beats Aberdare. this time in electioneering enthusiasm. There will be two figlits at Mountain Ash. In the Dar- renlas Ward, Mr. W. Da vies, the old member an-d a Labourite, will be opposed by Mr. Gwilym Jones, solicitor. In the Duffryn Ward Mr. W. S. Davies retires. and there is a struggle for his seat hc- tween Mr. David Williams, the Labour Candidate, and Mr. Gwilym A. Evan", J.P. As may be gleaned from our corres- pondence columns the battle rages fur- iously at the Mount. In both contests the Labour issue seems to be predomin- ant. The same may be said of the single contest in Aberdare. Year by year muni- cipal elections are resolving themselves more and more into economic encounters between the forces of Labour and Cani- t&lism.
