TOWYN'S SELECTION. To the Editor, Amman Valley Chronicle. Sir,-May I, through the medium of your extensively read paper, offer my sincere con- gratulations to Mr. Towyn Jones, M.P., on h:s selection with such overwhelming majority by the Liberal Council of the Division? All my life I have been a whole-hearted supporter of Tariff Reform, a large Navy, and a Germano-Phobe, and have advocated these policies more than once against Mr. Towyn Jones in days when he was an out-and-out Free Trader, Little Navyite, and t a Germano- phile. Thus our politics have been worlds apart, and yet I would give him to-day my unstinting support, for two reasons:â( 1) The need of the times, as it appears to me, is a Coalition Government so overwhelmingly strong that the nation as a whole will speak at the Peace Conference. (2) I consider that Mr. Towyn Jones as a man and politician is infinitely preferable to Mr. Llewelyn Williams, who is condigned, and deservedly so, to plough his lonely furrow in the desert waste of no man's land. I have always regarded and found Towyn to be a man of excellent principle, but who harboured very short-sighted ideas of public politics. In other words, a good man with bad politics. Now that he is pledged to sup- port the Coalition Government to treat every question of Social and Tariff Reform on its merits, I am sure he thas the full confidence not only of the Liberals in the Division, but of the overwhelming majority of the Unionists as well. Whether he will be forced to con- test the election remains to be seen, but as for his being returned to Parliament there can be not the slightest doubt. I wish him every success.âYours, &c., LIFE-LONG UNIONIST. November 20th, 1918.
