—— -♦ TRALLWN WARD. The contest in the Tralhvn Ward is certain ly interesting, and Mr W. i.kin Williams and his band of "stalwarts" ¡n' putting any amount of energy into the fight, and there is ever\ sign of a glorious termination. It is safe to say that never has Mr Williams been so well supported, und the manner in which his com- mittee has worked must be pleasing to him. --0- Mr Williams' Committee is composed almost entirely of working men, who are determined that the interests of the Trallwn Ward shall not be made the sport of public companies. The issue is being brought home very clearly to the electors, both by tbe candidate and his supporters. Mr Williams, accompanied by Mr Fred Edwards, has made a personal call upon the greater portion of the voters, and our readers may rest assured that these gentlemen are not pealing eggs over the matter. --0- The question at issue is an all important one. The electors are called upon to choose between two candidates. The one (Mr Watkin Williams) has worked in season and out of season for the benefit of the district as a whole and for the Tnallwn Ward in particular. The other has been obliged to confess that during the time lie (Mr Taylor) was on the Council before, he did not scruple to assist the Tafl Vale Railway Company to get up evidence against the Cardiff Railway Bill. The Trallwn Ward does not want a man of this make. A public representative should guard and pro- tect the interests of the public^ or what is the use of hem? -(')- The evidence given by Mr Taylor on the Railway Bill has been circulated throughout the Ward, and a!:hoagh Mr Taylor is attempt- ing to shuffle, and to explain, the more h& attempts to shoflle, the tighter is he pinned down. Wo have no doubt but that Mr Taylor is wishing this "precious evidence" were in Jericho; it is no doubt a source of great worry to him. No matter how he may try to elude it, there it is staring him in the face all over the Ward, a-id we should not wonier if he sees v'.ii^ns oi it in his dreams. -')- Mr raylor can take it f-om us iii.tt t-li that e-.v.ence has f.rove-i his muricipaliy speaking, 11 no natter v.M' he says about Ljing iii i £ vour cf greater railway fcailities. he cannot knon it out of the voters' minds that the evidence against the railway was given on oath, and he must not feel annoyed if the electors of the Trallwn Ward prefer to believe his sworn evidence rather than any other of his many statements. —o— Not only that, but Mr Taylor has to use a common expression, "given the show amav." No one but a beaten man would make such unfounded statements about his opponent as Mr Taylor has done. He accused Mr Watkin Williams of being against the erection of a footbridge at the Berw, To this statement Mr Watkin Williams has given the lie direct. Now he says that Mr Williams did not sup- port the Railway Bill last year. We know Mr Watkin Williams has always supported the Railway Bill, and went to London twice ot throe times in order to give evidence in favour i of it. When a man endeavours to catch the attention of the electorate by misreprseenting his opponent, it is a sorry case indeed.
