THE REPRESENTATION OF SWANSEA TOWN. MR BURNIE'S WITHDRAWAL ACCEPTED. On Monday It meeting of the Council of the Five Hundred of the Swansea. Town Liberal Associa- tion was held at the Albert Minor Hall for the purpose of receiving a, communication from Mr R. D. Barnie, in which be withdrew his candidature; and a recommendation thereon from the execu- tive. There was a large attendance. In the absence of Mr Cory Yeo, the pre- sident, the chair was taken by Mr R. L. Sails, the vice-chairman of the Execn- tive who said that as it was clear from the letter and as he had satisfied himself that the step Mr Burnie had taken was definite the executive had paesed the following motion :— That this meeting of the Executive of the Swan- sea Liberal Association. having heard Mr Burnie's letter of resignation of his candidature, regretsthat it has no alternative but to recom- mend its acceptance to the Council, and at the same time desires to place on record its high appreciation of the imaluable services Mr Burnie, both as a member of Parliament for several years and as a, worker generally during a. much longer series of year3, has rendered to the party, and its deep regret that the services of so loyal a Liberal may as a candi- date no longer be available." The Chairman, after paying a very high per- aonal" tribute to Mr Burnie, proposed the adoption of the motion, which Mr 0-. W. Morgan seconded. Mr David Harris proposed that a deputation wait upon Mr Burnie and ask if there was any possibility of him withdrawing his resignation bat after discussion it was withdrawn and the Chairman's motion adopted. The Chairman then said the president had written strongly advocating tbe appointment of a new Council co deal with so important a question as a candidate, especially as the present one had been in office six months beyond its term. After discussion it was resolved that immediate steps be taken to select a, new Council, and that in the meantime the Executive be empowered to obtain the names of tuitable candidates for submission to the new Council. LETTER FROM MR BURNLE. LIBERAL TRADITIONS AND IM- PERIALISM. In a letter to the Morning Leader on 4iis desire to withdraw from the position of Liberal candidate for Swansea (Town Division) Mr Barnie srvs :—" I have all dong feared that noth- ing .but discredit to the Empire could re'scls* from the debased type of Im- perialism adopted from the first as the Government's foreign policy, and it is now seen that amongst other disasters it has landed us in a deplorable war in South Africa, with all its terrible bloodshed, the dishonouring of the nation's prestige, and the squandering of the. nation's wealth. Where farther it may lead is not pleasant to contemplate, but it 111 tending in the direction of an aggressive militarism, with all its consequent crushing taxation and the prospect of poverty amongst the masses becoming more chronic than ever. The promotion of progressive, social, and political reforms and a fairer system of taxation, together with commercial questions, were to me the attractions of public work, and to the House of Commons, whilst absorbed in militarism, I have but little desire to return, even if the personal considerations had not arisen. In conclusion, I can only express the hope that the Liberal party will not allow itself to be tempted away frcm its proud traditions, to coquet with a paltry and I will o'-the wisp 1m. perialism.
