THE PEMBROKE BOROUGHS. To the Editor of the Tenby Observer. SIR,—I noticed that letters are beginning to appear in the Pembrokeshire papers with regard to the Conservative candidate for the Pembroke Boroughs at the next election but would it not be better if the Tory Party in the constituency let well alone ? At present we have an excellent member in Sir Owen Philipps, a gentleman, who, I have every reason to believe, was returned by the votes of both sides, thus showing that a good local man is appreciated.. As to Sir Owen's use- fulness at Westminster, his past record speaks for itself, and the Pembroke Boroughs have never been more ably and more satisfactorily represented than they are just now. The Conservatives have made several attempts—all ineffectual—to unseat Sir Owen, but as long as they have to import out- siders at the eleventh hour they will never make an alteration in the political colouring of the representation of this constituency. Nor is it altogether fair to the sitting member that he should have to be called upon to guard his seat against these "aliens." They come without a six- penny stake in the constituency, fathered by the Tory Caucus, and although they cannot win the seat, in fact, have not the faintest chance of doing so, they cause needless expense and turmoil. If the Conservatives were to run a genuine local man—a man resident in the County, with a prac- tical interest in it—and a man who, if returned, would give his constituents as good service as Sir Owen Philipps, then there would be some excuse for an election. But as things have been arranged the last few years, the Conservatives have had no chance of winning. Their candidates have all been rank outsiders, carpet-baggers." I believe is the correct, if somewhat vulgar term, for these gentry. If they are thinking of securing yet another alien to contest the seat at the next General Election, let them pause before fixing up another political farce." Yours truly, October 24th, 1910.
