IF HE GETS IN. Mr. Miles Talks of Dark Influences." JJie advent of the Postmaster General into to:- a Lena of Swansea Municipal affaiij*. jIll- lit the (I tti;l,lc t(, -Ail'. Milts that the assumption of (I. Pllblic pOi-lition would irterfe.ro with lii#» official d.uties. has 'ironsed a, great deal of feeling in Labour cireles. It. is felt that the difficulties Mr. Miles is experiencing will prove the one thing needful to popularise the election and Necure success for the postman candidate. "ion can. take it from me. and put it in your paper if you like—Miles is a candidate." So l'eu:rkc.d" Councillor Merrells. Mr. Miles, he explained, will assure the department that the ork ellta iled upon him as iI. Councillor would not interfere with his official duties, but in no event will he withdraw. i-iiit to earth in t, Higii- street hotel, was equally confident. He. said the statement in the "Post" as to the official communication*! was substantially accurate, ulllJ- it was not true that there had been any correspondence between Mr. Williams, secre- tary of the Postmen's Federation, and the Postmaster-General. All communication was being held through the Swansea postmaster— | the usual channel. Letters had to pass nrany hands before they reached the Postniaster- General. "The postmaster lure Lc favourable to your candidature V" "He has not objected to it at all in anv way." "Then he is with you' "The postmaster expresses no opinion— having regard for hi*, position, it would not be right for him to. "But you th: that ])eison;iliy lie is fa- vourable to "So far a-s I am able to judge, he is pro- bably quite io my favour; but of course he would take no part in the election. Wait till you see the 'Post' to-morrow. The matter wiil be brought on in the Coucioil. And I have just seen Sir George Newnes." "What did he say?" The candidate smiled knowingly. "I'd rather not divulge anything while negotia- tions are in progress," was hif» diplomatic re- joinder. "Sir George will help you'?" "No. I mustn't, say. Wait till to-mor- i.nv "When replies to communiaitioiiM will have arrived?" "Probably r don't know for certain. But (this with another knowing smile) there will be something to-niorrow. "You have no thought of withdrawing?" "None whatever: not in the least." ''The [lost office would not. in any case, go to extremes "r" "No. If they did the whole body of post- men would support It jw>¡t shows what in- fluences there are against me—in Lonèüll and down here," Mr. Miles darkly added. "What influences?" "1 nnii-tii'i say now, but I think we have a clue; a e'd if so. it will all come out pre- sently. It so. it'll be an eye-opener to Swan. sea." L ]it Meanwhile nothing more is to be done in the way of meetings till the pivsuit negotia- tions have ended and the matter has bee.i discu.s-.sed by the Trades Council. The pressman ventured a. question: as to a meeting which -,i-ao talked of at Philadelphia, Cliapel. llafod, on Monday evening, but which did not come off. He had been told that j. •emission to use the schoolroom had I been cann lied. Mr. Miles was very cautious. "Y\ e eeiild not have the room because the friends there had a meeting." he said. "That was the reason.?" "Well, it's not for me to say..ul, u''? the reason given. 1 know that the 1 ° tli t! ehapel is one of Odo*" men.
