MR, HARMED VOTES IN THE COMMONS. Sir,âPlease allow me a small space of your valuable paper to draw attention to the utter- ance of Mr. Keir Hardie at Carmel Hall, Aberdare. He gave Army estimates from the time he firs* entered Parliament until the year 1915â-what they probably will be then â and criticised the Government unmercifully, and said that thev were unable to satisfy the peo- ple with sufficient reason for the increase. If Mr. Keir Hardie represented a constituency where there was a dockyard, we should not have heard this criticism. The Cabinet, he says, are not in unison, as though the party he represents are in perfect harmony. He pre- dicts an immediate dissolution unless a truco can be arranged between the Whigs and Tories. This constituency may as well bs unrepresent- ed just because his vote was neutralised by the Senior Member on the Navy estimates. It would be interesting to know how Mr. Keir Hardie voted upon the Army Bill when Mr. Barnes moved an amendment. It would reveal some inconsistency of those who pretend to do the right thing always. Did he and his col- leagues make a truce at the eleventh hour, lest the Government be defeated ? The record of the voting shows some confusion. Mr. Keir Hardie is anxious to get a Labour colleague to contest this constituency at the next election. The Liberals are quite as anxious, and feel cer- tain that the victory will not, be for Socialism, but for pure Labour and Liooraliem. ELECTOR.
