Capital Punishment APPEAL TO CHRISTIAN PEOPLE. To the Editor of the Llanelly Mercury." Sir,—I cannot refrain from writing you a letter to-day expressing, my feeling in regard to capital punishment, now again so promi- j nently brought before us in the case- of executed to-day at Swansea Gaol. To t thoughtful and Christian people, the reading in this morning's papers of the arrival of the executioners and the testing of the lows i. fo say the- least, abominable. In ijjood to deliberately kill a yuuiig 1 man of 25 years, that he may be punished for his misdeeds, brings to those who are respon- sible a terrible responsibility I am not going to discuss the question for or against capital punishment in your columns, Mr. Editor, but I suggest that all those who are opposed to this method should again petition the Government, with a vicnill to getting a change of this most inhuman practice. I cannot for the life me see, why Christian people do not stir in a matter of this kind, and compel our erepresentativec, in Parlia- ment to use their influence for a reform in this respect. I believe that if a few leaders in municipal life and ministers and clergy in Wales were to put their heads together, and arrange one or two conventions in Wales, capital punish- ment would soon be & thing of the past. Is there anyone sufficiently interested to take the matter u p 3—T am .etc.. J. ROBERTS-POWELL, Y.H.C.A. Secretary. Coldstream Street, Licaeliy, May 8th.
