UNITED IRISH LEAGUE, MOUNTAIN ASH. At the meeting of the O'Connell ] branch (U.I.L.), Mountain Ash, held on Sunday last, at Miskin Schools, the chief topic of discussion was the result of the recent election. The chairman (Mr. Joseph Keating) said that by unworthy methods the Coali- tion had destroyed the principle of free speech and free assembly, and it was wrong to say that the success- ful candidate was chosen by the voters. Until the next election, the Aberdare constituency would, there- fore, be misrepresented in Parlia- ment. The Chairman doubted whether that mattered much. He be- lieved that the shady tactics of the Coalition had angered working people all over the country, and had driven them to the verge" of ignoring Par- liament and they were looking to in- dustrial action as a means of obtain- ing just treatment. Mr. Keating said that he, personally, was opposed to violence in any shape or form, and he hoped that calm counsels would pre- vail. Several members drew attention to the fact that there were only three teachers left in the Catholic schools. The proper staff should be nearly three times as large. The children were receiving scarcely any instruc- tion, and the position seemed to be a hopeless one.âMr. Jeremiah Murphy (vice-president) declared that the foundation managers; had completely failed in their duty and ought to re- sign for very shame. He was for get- Lion ting a full explanation of the disas- trous state of things. He proposed that a special meeting of the branch hould be held to deal with the mat- ter.âThe motion was carried unani- measly.
