GOWER BOROUGH'S CONTRO- VERSY. Mr. John Williams and Aeron Thomas, M.P. Suggested Choice of Another Candidate. "Toiler" writes; —Labour," hi his episfe to t's Dailj_^ost'' 0f iionday, in reference to the Gower Division in the next Parliament- ary election 1 gives room to the outsider to infer that h6 13 110 other than a "Hodgeite," and his interference by offering an advice 10 the mining portion of the division is totally uncalled for. Re:tlil- between the lines one cannot help nOLIClllg the malignant feeling that unfortunately underlies the question of who is to be or not to be th- future represent- ative of thLS important constituency. Evi- dently lir. Jolui Williams, miner's agent- in I the event of s aJIowrig himself to contest the ieat, woula receive but little support from that portwii of the constituency of which "Labour'' defends. (jn the other hand the same danger :ppreheiids the minds of the miners tosV;11"^ Mr. John Hodge. To the minds of all reasonable thinking electors, no- thing could be inoit damaging towards weak- ening the cause of labour representation than the running of Massrs. Williams and Hodge. Since, hovrver, the Unions to which tne gent'emeii referred to have the honour to be at the heúd, cannot fee eye to eye, and until •such differences have been sunk, I would sug- gest that a labour man be chosen from out- ride the folds of Associations, and one cap. able of watching the interests of the workrrg man with tacl and ability within the pale of St. Stephen s- it- need hardly be pointed out that in the mg area of Gower Division, young }:){'l\ of brilliant t al._nt^<, and who have the caiite of the woi^ng man at heart, but owing to circumstances are not members of a.ny par- tu-uLtr uiricit, woul j willingly come forward, provided a pC'irnary consideration is extend- ed as would lieoe.-sanly occur in the case of Messrs. Hodge and Williams. Wil-h the in- cuaie of work now falling upon the shoulders of the he-ads of unlj0.I\s> with prospects of stili increasing resp01^-1 '^ilitie.s, it would be unwrse to fix either )f. the two, as it is impossible to .f I I serve with satisfaction two masters—one or the other must inevitabdy fall Let the elec- tors give this the-r serious consideration
