Letters to the Editor. THE PEACE MEETING. Mr. Editor.—I attended a most in- teresting meeting last Tuesday evening at Ebcncz/cr, Trecynon, under the aus- pices of the Aberdare Propaganda Peace Society. The Rev. James Jones, E!im, Cwmdare, took the chair, one of the most sincere men, with whom J. deeplv symoathi.se in his martyrdom. Dr. Peter Price, Rhos, one of the most popular miniaters in Wales since the Revival, who was placarded to speak on the "Kingdom of Heaven," had one of the finest audiences. But allow me to state here that I was greatly disappointed in the meet- ing. As it was a Peace Meeting why not a few prayers to heaven for peace ? Surely God has the last word to sav in the destinies of nations. And why not send a strong resolution in favour of peace to the War Council, and another to the Kaiser, who by now is a sadder if not a saner man? i Dr. Price's address was a treat of hot hash, made up of bits of old ser- mons and lectures, seasoned with strong spices and gravies to suit the palate of his audience, who cheered him to the echo. He emphazised very excellent truths, lie committed very in- genious inconsistencies, and offered S2me i.grave compromises. Al- though the meeting was held under the A.P.P.S. to Advocate peace and brotherhood, Dr. Price preached the most virulent class hatred. Some poor mortal, who happened to he a ,J.P.. was dubbed a "Big Hug"; some deac ons at Bethania, Dowlais, termed "rack- renters"; "scoundrels'v was hurled at others, and "Royalty" was spat upon. Of course, all this was for gallery con- sumption. and was greatly reiished. Revolution" was passionately advo- cated to bring about the Kingdom of Heaven, if "Reformation" was further delayed. Now I am a Pacifist, "a man of peace," as "he chairman said. I pray for peace; I publish the glad tidings of peace, and I am anxious to do anything and everything in my power to bring, about "Peace on earth and good-wiH among men." So will you allow me to ask the Rev. J. Jones, Cwmdare, to state clearly what is the programme of the A.P.P. Society? What do they propagate and fight for, and hope to- attain? Tuesday evening's meetincr brought peace no "forrarder." Dr. Price's solution of the present terrible problem was verv comical and highly amusing. He advocated bring- ing say 6 of the leading personalities connected with the war, from everv belligerent country, pack them into- some backyard, and let them fight the matter between them to a finish.0 Now that would be jolly fun, but I feel sure the Kaiser, for one, would not enter the cock-pit; lie would be a conscientious objector to that easy way of fighting tc a finish. Perhaps little Willie would enjoy the game. But surely that is not what you, Mr. Jones, advocate. So what is the Society's programme of peace? Is it peace of victory for the allies, or the peace of victory for Germany r Or do you advocate the duty of the Allies to throw up the sponge to-morrow, and leave Belgium, Serbia, Rumania, ew., under the bloody heels of the German hordes? I ask the Rev. J. Jones because I feel sure of a sincere, straightforward answer; and if what the Society aims at is within the bounds of possibility, vou will have to "put my name down" also. I am with you heart and soul.—Yours sincerelv, CYNOG WILLIAMS.
