GWELO, 14 Jan­uary 1919. We are not at all sure that the meet­ing of the Coun­cil of the Re­spon­si­ble Gov­ern­ment As­so­ci­a­tion held at Gwelo on Satur­day car­ries the coun­try very much fur­ther in re­gard to the vi­tal po­lit­i­cal is­sues which are now oc­cu­py­ing some mea­sure of pub­lic at­ten­tion.

We ven­tured to sug­gest a day or two ago that, as an as­so­ci­a­tion, the mem­bers were not com­pletely united in their de­sire to se­cure the ob­ject for which the as­so­ci­a­tion was formed and we in­di­cated the pos­si­bil­ity of trou­ble ahead.

Un­for­tu­nately for the peace of mind of those who are strong ad­vo­cates of re­spon­si­ble gov­ern­ment, our pre­dic­tion has been am­ply proved to be true.
