Labour Topics. [From Our Labour Correspondent.] The outlook in the South Wales Coal- field is both gloomy and disquieting. There are at present 10,000 unemployed, and the action of the P.D. Company 'is to add to that number. Here we find a powerful Company, reaping a profit of P-1,750,000 during the last five years, now endeavouring to force an unjust price list upon 100 men at the point of starvation, by locking out 2,0007 men at Aberamaii. Capitalism shows no mercy. Dealing with the local magistracy and its absence of Labour J.P.s, it is well to recall the fact that the Lord-Lieutenant of Glamorgan (Earl of Plymouth) is Chairman of the Conservative Workmen's Association, and has more to do than anyone in making the necessary addi- tions to the Bench, apart from the Lord Chancellor. Yet we find that his inter- est in the working classes is such that lie has not yet thought them intelligent enough to qualify for the Bench. I hope Tom Jones, and other Conservative work- ing men, who are playing into the hands of their enemies, will realize how thin is the sympathy existing between the present Tory Lord Lieutenant and their own class. A well-attended meeting, under the Ystrad Rhondda Branch of the I.L.P., was held at Bodringallt Chapel (kindly lent) on Wednesday, March 3rd, when the speaker, Rev. J. Tilyn Roberts, M.A., Calvinistic Methodist Minister, "Blaenau Festiniog, gave an address upon The Prophet Amos and his Social Problemsâ A message from a far' off past." The ad-1 dress was followed with great interest. The speaker is a crowned bard, and a promising young minister. It js pleasing to record the continued accession of min- isters of the Gospel to the Labour and Socialist movement. Their presence will assi-st in keeping it towards the Christ ideal. For the Church at this time of day to hold aloof from this great move- ment is to court disaster. Let us hope that better judgment will prevail, and that prejudice will give way to reason. I find that the Councillors of No. 2 Ward have followed No. 1 Ward, and have addressed the ratepayers unon the Auditor's Report. What about the other Wards. So far a.s the Labour Councillor for No. 3 Ward is concerned, it is expect- ed that he will come before the Electors about the end of the month, seeking a renewal of confidence for the next three years, as the selected candidate of the Trades and Labour Council. It is being arranged bv the Miners' Federation for a series of meetings to be held throughout the Valley in the interest of Labour. The machinery- in connection with Registration is being set up. The L.R.C. Constitution takes effect at the General Election, when the candi- date must appear before the electors as Labour only.
