BARRY "PROGRESSIVES" AND « PRINCIPLE." To the Editor of the "BARRY DOCK NEWS." DEAR SIR,-Nuttall says that" Principle" is the source or origin of anything: element, con- stituent, or component part. I am inclined to admit that most "Progressives" have quite a monopoly of it, so much so that some of them have it on the brain. Better they had a little less, :and a bit more common sense and common decency to go with it; then we might swallow it with a little more ease, and not taste quite so nasty. Do they treat their opponents with common fairness to commence with 2 If they did they would personally bear the expenses incurred whilst indulging in this grand battle of persecuting helpless women and children. "Oh," they are wont to say, "we are not wilfully striking ab the women and children, it is the priest and the doctrines of Rome that we are hitting at; the misfortune is that our visions are faulty owing to our Principles being so high, so much so that we are hitting right over the head of the priest, and falling helplessly on to the women and children. Certainly they are being crushed; not one of our side has been seriously injured in the fray, only one poor brother, and had he not been loafing,' no barm would have come his way I am afraid I cannot trace much of the so much vaunted principle in this crushing story. Maybe my vision is spiritually blurred by the stain of sectarian sin if so, pray for my speedy redemp- tion, I must be a terrible sinner. Last Tuesday week the Gas and Water Com- mittee met to elect a chairman. Mr Milward, though absent through his recent accident, was -duly proposed and seconded, and one would have thought that the members present would have kept in touch with the vote of sympathy so heartily accorded him the previous night, and would have agreed to his election without dissent; but 'twas not to be. Messrs W. J. Williams and T. Walters were determined to leave no stone unturned to keep him out of the chair. After exhausting every means ab their disposal, Mr Walters proposed his "esteemed friend," Mr W. J. Williams, for the post. There being nobody forthcoming to second this, nothing daunted Mr Williams very coolly took upon himself the honour of doing so, remarking thab it was some- what unusual, but as a principle was at stake, he would second himself. This was followed by a lot of giggling and laughter, and finally Mr Milward was elected unanimously. If the vote bad been unanimous from the outseb, they could nob have trotted out their well-flogged hobby-horse of principle in full gaze of the public.-Yours -faithfully, A. E. LUEN. 83, High-street, Barry.
