The Spirit of Dowlais I.U.H. I VIGOROUS PROTESTS AT BRANCH I MEETING. The Dowlais Branch of t,he National Union of Railwaymen had many important matters be- fore it at its last meeting, and amongst the resolutions passed and ordered to be transmitted to the Premier, the Home Secretary, and various sources were the following: THE C.D. ACTS. I That this meeting of the Dowlais Branch of the National Union of Railwaymen condemns the return to the policy of the discredited C.D. Acts embodied in the Regulation 40d of the De- fence of the Realm Act, protesta against com- pulsory medical examination as a futile and abominable practice, and demands the imme- diate withdrawal of the said Regulation." THE RIGHT OF TRIAL. I Tha.t this meeting of the Dowlais Branch of the National Union of Railwaymen strongly protests against the action of the Government in deporting and interning persons without trial. We assert that such mode of procedure constitutes a grave menace to Trade Union interests. We therefore call upon our M.P.'s and Executive Committee to take such steps as be in their power to abolish this practice." BERTRAND RUSSELL SENTENCE. I "That this meeting of the Dowlais Branch of the National Union of Railwaymen expresses its strongest protest against the heavy sentence passed upon Mr. Bertrand Russell, F.R.R., for having exprpssed in an article on the German Peaoe Offer, that should the war continue in- definitely, an American garrison might be used to intimidate strikers in this country. We fur- ther call for the immediate release of Mr. Rus- sell as the sentence is in our opinion extremely unjust. THE LIBERTY OF THE PRESS. I "That this meeting of the Dowlais Branch 01 the National Union of Railway-men protests against the action of the authorities in destroy- ing the printing plant of Mr. S. H. Street, -of 4 Blegborough-road, Streatham as a wanton violation of the freedom of the press and the rights of the printing trade. It further de- mands that adequate compensation should be made to Mr. S. H. Street and that a full public enquiry should be instituted into the methods recently adopted by the Home Office to prevent criticism of the Government."
