Jones, Rhos.âThe Chairman referred to the late explosion at the Rhosllantwit Colliery, which had brought gloom into several households in the districts, and the Secretary thought it desirable that the meeting should take some notice of the occurrence.-Mr. Richard-Jenkins said that the relatives of their members were amongst the sufferers, and he proposedâ"That this meeting desires to express its profound regret at the recent calamity at the Rhosllantwit Pit. and its deep SYMPATHY with the sorrowing relatives; and that an appeal be made on their behalf to the workmen of the district and the public in general.MriFrank Talbot seconded the resolu- tion, and remarked that. they must be thankful that the accident did not occur iwhile the whole of the MENU were at work, for had it happened when there was a full shift yety probably manv more- IROULD HO-R-CR TWIESEL^- tion was carried. A report was given by the representatives of the- Rhosllantwit Colliery of the appeal made toMr.ForsterBrown (managing director of the company) for a certain amount of advance for the introduction of safety lamps, instead of naked lights. Without the least hesitation, Mr. Brown had granted a 7* per cent. rdvance under the rock, and 10 per cent. under the clod, for all colliers and piecework workmen in this section of the colliery that required such change in the mode of working. The meeting passed a unanimous vote of thanks to Mr. Brown for his readiness at all times to meet the work- men for the purpose of investigating and settling questions in dispute.âThe financial claim of the executive council of the South Wales and Monmouthshire Colliery Workmen's Federation was considered, and it was resolved to support the cases in dispute at Taff Llantwit and Nixon's Mountain Ash Collieries.âThe time having arrived for calling another levy for the support of the sliding-scale fund, it was decided that the collieries should collect the subscriptions at once. âThe usual vote of thanks to the officials terminated the proceedings.
