A LABOUR CANDIDATE. ACTION OF THE TIN-PLATE WORKERS. I An important meeting of tin-plate workmen, colliers, and spelters, was held at Morriston on Saturday, for the purpose of considering what action should be taken with regard to the vacancy in the representation of Gower. The chairman of the Tin-plate Workers' Umon presided, and dele- gates were present from 29 works in the division. Speeches were delivered by Mr Isaac Evans (miners' agent) and other representative men, urging the necessity of direct representation of labour in Parliament. The conduct of the Liberal Association in entirely ignoring the working men was strongly condemned. Mr Isaac Evans said it was an easy matter if the workmen were united to have a labour candidate for that division. In his opinion they could not have a better man to [represent them than Mr David Randell, solicitor, Llanelly, who had worked most unceasingly and unselfishly in the labour cause for the last fifteen J years. If the workmen of the United Kingdom III m weuld only contribute Is per year they could maintain 350 men in Parliament, and if the work- men of South Wales would only contribute ld per week they could maintain ten members in the House. Until they hadasufticieiitnumberof labour representatives they could not expect justice. The meeting enthusiastically decide i to ask Mr Randell to come forward. A deputation was then appointed to wait upon Mr Randell, who was at Swansea.—Mr Randell said he reluctantly acceded to their wishes, on the strict understand- ing that they would stand by him. He would be simply fightiug for the principle of labour repre- sentation and he would only be too pleased, if he were the successful candidate, to hand over the seat to a still more close representative of the working classes.—Upon Mr Randeli's reply being known, committees were at once formed to make arrange- ments for contesting the seat. A mass meeting of electors is announced to be held at Morristou this evening, at which Mr D. Randell will deliver au address.
