CORRESPONDENCE. U- CONFLICTING IDEAS. To the Editor Sir,-With the General Eleotion near at band and the possibility of candidates and other people oommit- ing a political somersault, it is necessary and advisable that we should know their true position. For the time being we can only deal with one person who seeks the support of the electorate the other person may come into the field later on. During the war, it has been understood that Mr Alfred Ouions was in favour of sup- porting the Coalition Government in prosecuting the war. "It was also taken for granted, that the members of the I.L.P., were in favour of stop- ping the war at any time, and enter. ing into what was oalled a premature peace." In the opinion of the former, the prosecution of the war was essential to safeguard and preserve democracy. In the opinion of the latter, war at any time and at all times was folly, and would not, and could not preserve, and safeguard democracy. This rested in their be- lief in the sacredness of human life and possessing the idea that advance- ment would not come by using humtn beings as CI common fodder." In theory, I am giving my beat as far as the two are concerned, but in praotiee I am not going to say that either of them come up to what is hold theo- retically. It is quite true that the war is pract-icaliv over, but that fact, surely, is not the cause of P.-inciples-if there are atiy-being sunk, and hands being joined for the moment. Such a thing, apparently, may appear so, hut at the bottom it is not feasible. Yen may have people who appear to work unless they have forgotten ideals and altered their opinions. At a meeting at G ilfacb to further the candidature of Mr Onions, there were four or five I.L.P. members on the platform. How they got there, and who was i-esponsible for their presence, is another point that should hø known. Wire-puUing may be use- I, mi to the few, but it is a hindrance to the many. In order to and out the met position ooovpied by the ""T't man who stands as Labour candidate, will someone say whether or not he endorses the action of the I.L.P. people in the past ? As there are two sides to most questions, and not in any way wishing to do th; Labour candidate an injustice, will someone say whether or not the I L P. people endorse the position of Mr Onions in the past ? In answering these two questions to anything like satisfaction, the air may become c!ear and the path made clean.- I am, etc M. J. FITZGIBBON, 7, Llancayo-street, Bargoed November 23rd, 1919.
