Yours faithfulily, Dr. J. H. WILLIAMS. Snowden House, Burry Port, 4th November, 1918. Why you should Support THE LABOUR CANDIDATE. Because he has given his whole life to the cause of Labour. Because he is not the Puppet Candidate of a Political Kaiser. Because he is not a commodity to be rationed out like sugar or jam. Because he will add Political Power to your Industrial Power. Because he is in favour of honourable main- tenance for all. Because he is free to vote for any good Measure, whilst the Coalition Candidate has to vote for the Coalition-right or wrong.
