County Council Politics. To the Editor of the "County Guardian." Sir,—With referenco to the recent meeting at Ambleston, at which the Rev. John Rees, of Letterston, is quoted to have given The assembled voters some scriptural ad- vice cn electioneering, admonishing them that when they promised their votes to Mr. Higgon they must not break their word, I agree with the latter remark, and I will not dwell on the priestly despotism exhibited in this clerical piece of advice to the voters, because all voters know full well that the ballot is an absolute secret, and even if a voter cannot record his vote through inability to and read the presiding officer will do so for him as directed, and this officer is bound to secrecy on oath. But it is upon the crafti- ness of this braggadocio that I wish to dilate. Would it not be better if he moved along with present day times, and studied (or read up) something of the more up-to-date burning questions connected with this old theology, and not keep on dishing up the same 6ternal fossilised twaddle which we unfortunate parishioners have to listen to year in year Out? I maintain that the old historic struggle for religious liberty is still very much alive, and when we see a parson introducing any elec- tioneering dodge under the cloak of religion it means that we workers must buckle on our armour and look after our dearly bought rights. The cleric must know, unless he is absolutely optimistic, that the power of the clergy over the masses is gone for over, and to introduce anything of one-sided scriptural colouring into a political meeting is morally wrong and degrading to any rational mind.- Yours, etc.,
