THE "GROUP" AND COUNCILLOR GRIFFITHS. Sir,—I quite agree with "J. H." that my letter was amusing, but I am alio under the impression (rightly or wrongly) that it was more mortifying than amusing tc those persons more directly concerned than either "J. H." or "A Sociaiist." For that reason, those particu- lar persons have deemed it prudent to abstain from entering the lists, oonidring that in this particular instance, discretion is the better part of valour, thus leaving the field open to the above to champion their cause. If I am van- quished in this encounter, I shall be a gainer, for I shall have learnt something, and that is, I presume, the main object of debate In the first place, I have to deal with the letter of "J. H. in which he askod me a question which he deemed to be very pertinent and of paramount importance to the point at issue; also that it would be more to the point if I was able to deny that Councillor Griffiths had put his pnnoiples into the Catholic melting-pot. Councillor Griffiths has not done this, for his action on the Voluntary School question is purely one of equity; considering that inasmuch as religious instruction is "iven in our schools, it is but fair to allow others to give the relig- ious instruction in their own particular way. Putting principles in the melting-pot applies to those persons who refuse to do that which they were sent into the Council Chamber to do. Again, I am perfectly aware that the Merthyr I.L.P. discussed Coun. Griffiths's action, and that they invited him to attend, and being aware alro of what passed there, allow me to aek '\T H." by what power could the Merthyr I.L.P. form themselves into an Executive Com- mittee to discuss the action of Coun. Griffiths when there were other organizations in the Boronc;h who had don" more to return Coun. Griffiths to tlie Council chamber than the I.L.P.? Can anyone wonder that Couo. Grif- fiths did not attend? The Merthyr I.L.P. did not move in the proper mannetr; when they do move in t way that they sh<-»ild, I hn.ve not a particle of doubt but that Coun. Griffith* will he tbiTo to --xp' ,1 iP h,< ^TV.n "J.
