SIn J. J. JENKINS, M.P., ON CURRENT AFFAIRS. SIR J. J. JENKINS, M.P. for the Carmarthen Boroughs, has eventually broken his long silence on political affairs. We have wondered, time and againâand the wonderment has found expression in these columnsâwhen the borough member intended to give us anything in the nature of a political retrospect of the time covered by his parliamentary representation of this constituency. At last, in response to [ certain resolutions submitted to him by the Llanelly Liberal Executive, he has said some- thing in relation to two important questions. The "said something" is included advisedly. This pronouncement should, no doubt, be received on the principle that we ought to be thankful for small mercies. Since Sir JOHN persistently refuses the reason- ably and just application of his constituents for an account of his stewardship at a properly- convened public meeting, there is a grain of satisfaction in the fact that in response to the healthy and vibrant Liberalism of the resolutions forwarded to him by the Liberal Executive, he is prepared t. say something in letter form. Unfortunately, the something" is not well said and even as short letters go, the communica- tion is siagularly arid and valuelessâexcept as an exposition of the hopelessly Tory and reac- tionary principles of the member who repre- sents Radical Llanelly in Parliament. A large portion of the letter is occupied with the statement of a few elementary axioms, such as that The Cretan question is a difficult and very important one, and the Education Bill is, as you are aware, one proposed for assisting necessitous voluntary schools." It is very kind of Sir JOHN to let his constituents know this, This declaration serves a double purpose. It is an interesting revelation to his constituents and likewise a gratifying and conspicuous proof of the fact that Sir JOHN gets his information first hand from the government. After the letter which the borough member has been kind enough to forward to the Liberal Executive none of his constituents can offer any excuse for not knowing" something" about the im- portance of the Cretan questi on and the objects of the Education Bill.
