<I: 1 MR. JOHN WILLIAMS ANSWERS HIS CRITICS. Miners' Association Wants an Understanding. Mr. John, Williams, miners' agent, Xenth. writes:—In reply to the remarks of "La- bour," reported in yonr issue of Monday evening last, I beg to state that "La.bour" is not in possession of the whole of the facts in connection with the resolution passed by the delegates assembled at the district meeting which was held on the preceding Monday. The resolution contains the essence of the ad- vice tendered by "Labour" at the close of his letter. Steps have already been taken to convene a. representative meeting of all Trades Unions in the electorate to discuss the situation, and it is the ardent desire of the Western District Miners' Association to come to an honourable understanding with other Trades Unions re- specting the Gower Division, and a committee will be duly elected to carry out that step. Further, the instructions of the South Wales Miners' Federation in that direction will also be carried out, and steps are already being taken to secure a meeting between Mr. Rodge and myself, and I am sure an amicable ar- rangement will be arrived at, whereby the cause of labour shall not suffer. I am not going to deal with the other re- marks made by Labour" at the present moment, as to do so would no doubt engender bad feeling, but I shall be prepared at the conference to go fully into the action of the Western Miners Association and that of myself, in connection with Mr. Hodge's can- didature at the last General Election. Further, I desire to point out that no steps whatever had reen taken by me personally to secure the passing of the resolution referred to above. So doubt my association are de- sirous that I should run as a direct Labour representative at the next General Election; hence the passing of the recommendatory re- solution. Also, permit me to point out to your readers that mv association is fully aware that I have the cause Of lab-our at heart, and that no man could have done more for the cause of labour, co-operation ;nd socialism in the short time 1 have been 111 +he Western District, and there is no doubt but that the consciousness of this fact instigated them to pass a resolution to the effect that I should be nominated as a direct Labour candidate for the next General Election. This nomination is to be subject to the in- structions gr\e!i by tTies Executive Council of the South v\ ales Miners' Federation in that behalf.
