ELECTION CAMPAIGN CAERPHILLY AND GKLLIGAKB DIVISION. MR A. ONIONS'CANDtOAT?RH j ContiHuin bis tour of t he c'msdtn. I ency, County Councillor Aifrcti I Onions, J. P., the L?bo?r candidate, addre??d a we!! attended meeting ?n Wednesday evening at the Presby- terian Church, Giifach, Burgoed, pre- sided over by Mr Moses Price, who whs supported by a number of promi- nent. workers in the L«boar move- ment. In the course of an interesting address, Mr Onions said he had been selected by a la'ge majorit y of miners of the constituency tu contest the seat on behalf of Labour. II-s hid from I he beginning been a strong supporter of the w-ir. believing that th- i't,ittitry a* in honour bound to participate in it. It it mid t ot dOlle so instead of democracy govtrning the world in future miliaria :> would bt) dominant, stud therefore liberty, freedom and justice would be ptactically not- existent. An Armistice having been arras ged, and hostilities having ceased the first thinif to do was to remove t*t-s!t it tiorts that had been placed on their liberties, such as free speech and a free Press, in the interests of the war. Free speech and a free Press were absolutely essential to a healthy democracy. The next task would be to obtain terms of peace which wonld bring about the destruction of militar- ism, 'wherever found, and every coun- t'y that would be a party to the pcaoe treaty. It should be a just, Ifighteons and permanent peuc., pro- viding security for sm-til nations to (tatermine theii- owii ntid full compensation for tfeosp coautiies that had been devastated by the operations of the war. The onteo-tio of the peace terms should also be a League of Nation4 for the defence and m no- tenance of the peace of the future. Mr Onions explained that the fact of the Labour Party having decided to withdraw from the Coalition did not mean that they wotnd not take part in the reconstructing and rebuild- ing of the nation. The Labour Party would always support whatever Government was in power so loug as the aims and objects of the Labour Party were carried out. The workers had done their share towards winning the war, and were, therefore, entitled to take part in the rebuilding of society. Some 3,000,000 munition workers would return almost immedi- ately to civilian life, aud would want to engage in peaceful occupat,ionp, and it would be the nation's duty to see that these people were properly looked after until they found profit- able employment in civil life. The Labour Party stood for this which is included in its scheme of recoustruc- tion. m: —
