THE CANDIDATURE OF THE REV. T. PANDY JOHN. To the Editor of the "BARRY DOCK NEWS." DEAR SIR.—Allow me, through your valuable paper, to congratulate Mr Crates on his straight- forward letters with regard to the Rev T. Pandy John's candidature, and the alleged consent of the members of his church to the violation of IliS" promise to devote for the future his energies to ministerial work, and to leave public work to others. I am of opinion that ministers of the gospel are paid by the members of their churches to apply themselves to ministerial work, and not to act as delegates on public bodies. But it gives to some a t-tanding, and a small amount of patron- age and a good deal of advertisement; though the opinion of many is that when these things are followed too closely the church interest suffers. The members of Mr John's church have not been canvassed on the matter, and I, as an old member, quite agree with Mr Crates that many, very many, totally disapprove of Mr John's candidature after having promised to leave public matters alone. How can Mr John, as a pastor, now wish to with- draw his promise ? The late Tory Government has got its desserts, and is now out of power, and we are safe in the hands of the present Government. Why does Mr John, therefore, cling to office ? It cannot be for any but personal reasons. I enclose my name, Mr Editor, but prefer to sign this letter— A MEMBER.
