PROBABLE "WALK-OVER" FOR MR. S. T. EVANS. NO FEDERATION CANDIDATE. LLYNVI AND GARW MINERS DISSATISFIED. THE CONTEST IN SOUTH GLAMORGAN. COLONEL QUIN AND MR. BRACE BUSY. Events moved rapidly in regard to Mid- Glamorgan last week-end. On Friday the Miners' Federation gave their veto to the Labour candidate idea, and their decision was immediately followed by the withdrawal of Mr. Boyd Harvey's name in the Conservative interest, and a letter of "congratulation and gratification" from the sitting Member. With this resolution of the Miners' Federation, the prospect of a Labour candidate vanishes, and it is quite unlikely that a Conservative will be nominated without the prospect of a three- cornered fight. Mr. S. T. Evans comes to this conclusion in his letter to Mabon. We understand that at least one Conservative is prepared to contest the seai, but the Execu- tive Committee of the Mid-Glamorgan Con- servative Association have practically decided not to adopt a candidate. It goes without saying that a Conservative would have no chance of success in fighting Mr. S. T. Evans, though he would be doing his party some good by keeping that Member at home during the campaigns, and he would also be keeping the local Associations in trim. On the other hand, a majority of 5,000 is a hopeless task to be faced, and an uncontested election is probably better than a hopeless defeat. At any rate Mr. S. T. Evans is rejoicing.
