TEMPERANCE DEMONSTRATION AT PORT TALBOT. Principal Edwards on Socialism. MR T. RICHARDS, M.P., CRITICISES THE PREMIER. The Aberavon and Port Talbot United Temperance Associations held their annual demonstration on Saturday. Headed by the Port Talbot and Taibach Temperance Band, they paraded the principal streets and marched to the Port Talbot Park, where a meeting was held. The Rev. E. R. Harris (Bethany) pre- sided. Mr Tom Richards, Al.p., was the prin- eipal speaker. In the evening a meeting was held at the Public Hall, Aberavon, the Rev. A. J. Edwards, curate, st. Theodore's, presiding. Principal Edwards said he would welcome the day when Sunday closing would be extended to Monmouthshire, and also to England. He would also like to see the early closing of shops on Saturday nights be regretted that in this connection some of the workers in the churches were the greatest sinners they remained open because others kept open- Why could they not close and show others a good example ? Allud- ing to the fact that the Marquis of Bute desired to sell his interest in the Bute Docks, the speaker said the Marquis derived a vast in. come from ground rents in Cardiff. Was it right that one man should receive such wealth whilst in Cardiff alone there were hundreds of people almost starving ? The laws of England had been made by the landlords, and it was for the people to alter them. We had come to the parting of the ways, and the opportunity must not be lost. The people seemed to be afraid of the word Socialism the Church of Christ bad kept too far awa.v from this great movement. (Cheers.) The Church would have-to take a part. Between the Churches of Christ and Socialism there was no gu-f. It was the teach- ing and the example of Christ which they were following. Mr Tom Richards said in one of the streets of Aberavon there were several public- houses side by side. If there were any of the local councillors present be would cry shame to them for allowing such a thing. Mr Richards urged that the control of the liquor traffic should be with localitirs he believed Sir Henry Campbell- Bannermau was going to wreck the Government by handing the control of the liquor t,raffic to County Councils.
