CON\VAY IUNICIPAL ELECTION. t i (From a Correspondent ) The day before the recent Conway municipal election a circular signed by the four se called "ProgroeEUve" Canidieiiatcs ywas distributed in- sinuat.ng that the Conservative C< jkI;dates were practically responsible for the absence of tho Territorials, and that the address arid extracts from tho minutes were in fact false suggestions. .C, "i M-ay wh,.cdi -zzred I he- a,rt'do f tit, 14 t al)i) in a local paper, and mentioned in the above circular, referred to Militia encampments and not to Territorials at all. A reference to the minutes shows this at once. At a Camp Committee on the 50th Mereh, 1909 the Borough Surveyor's report coninei-ces as follows:- "Camps 1909: I am in receipt cf the of camps for 1909 by which you will fee that it is proposed! to send) Militia heio during August ard Sentoinber." A ccrr-esl)crLdmc-c then took place between the Council and military authorities. At a Council meeting held on the 7th April the minutes of the Camp Committee were adopted. On the 20th April the Camp Committee met to consider the proposed militia oamp in August and September when it was unanimously re- ceived, upon the propŒíY.10n of Councillor Porter, seconded by Councillor Ilenry Jones, that a reply be serat to the military authorities pointing out that the Council had spent a con- siclorab.e sum of money in restoring the surfaoo of the Morfa and that whilst they were most anxious to encourage camps here they did not think it would bo wine to extend t'he period this year as it would destroy the surface of the reclaimed ground and cause considerable damage. At a Council meeting 'held on the 12th May the minutes of the Oamp Committee were adopted. It< will thus be seen that the suggestions oon- tained in the circular referred to were falsa for three distinct reasons-:— 1. That the discussion referred' to in the local: paper referred to was in res- pect of Militia Camps and had "nothing whatever to do with tho Territorials." 2. In 1909 the Liberals were in a majority as they are now, so that the Conservatives could not in any event be directlvrespoIIsible for the doinga ol tihe CouociL 3. The reply from the War Office t distinctly stated that the reason the Territorials did not e.ene to Oonway in 1910 was "in no way due to any action or want of action on the part of tho Council or its officials." These facts were known to the authors of the leaflets, but they had mo more scruple in dis- tributing these k,ail.etn than they bad in cl-eseend ing to perstcnaii abuso of at least one of their opponents at meetings both reported and unre- ported. It would lie well for the ratepayers to cons'der these matters at. their leisure to that they may know how to deal with tactics of this sort if and when they are attempted i:1. future.
