LABOUR PARTY AND THE LIBERALS. KEIR HARDIE'S SPEECH AT HIRWAIN Mr. Keir Hardie, M.P., further addressed meetings at Hirwajn and Aberdare on Wed- nesday, urging that the Eight Hours' Bill ought to be forced upon the Government next Session. This was in anticipation of an adverse report by the Departmental Com- mittee. Dealing with Cocketrmouth election, he controverted the attampt to create the im- pression that it was only the Socialistic party that contested the election. It was not only Socialists that Winston Churchill was at war against, but the entire Trades Union movement. In a speech at Dowlais on Tuesday night, 1113 referred to the Government threats, and said: — "Retaliation is a game at which two can play. If it is assumed that Labour is going to rest content with thirty representatives in the House of Commons, that assumption will receive a severe shock." MACDONALD AND THE LIBERAL THREAT. "We are an independent party," said Mr. I J. Ramsey Macdonald to a "Daily Express" reporter, "and we shall retain the right of contesting seats whenever we choose. It is simply absurd to imagine that the Labour party will remain content with thirty mem- bers of Parliament. "I hope we are not going to be unreason- able, but we are not going to hold our hands because some one may be offended if we fight. If the Government thinks to frighten us it is very much mistaken. We can re- taliate as effectively as they can. "They will probably now oppose us in one or two constituencies, but I hope they will fight like men and not like schoolboys. "I am very sorry that these three-cornered fights should occur, and thus strengthen the Opposition. But the blame lies as much with the Liberals as v^ith us."
