Ammanford Police Court. Monday, November 18th.-Bfecre Mr. A E. Du Buisson, Glynhir (in the chair) Mr. D. Richards, Tirydail House; and Mr. W Williams, Penygroes. BREACH OF CONTRACT. Thirteen summonses were heard against a similar number of workmen employed at the Rhosamman Colliery, Brynamman, for breach of contract. Mr. Kenshole, solicitor, Aberdare, ap- peared for the Colliery Company, and Mr T. Randell, solicitor, Llanelly, defended. The men, who were described as "helpers had absented themselves from work in conse- quence of their not having been given "places" which they alleged they were entitled to. The Company, on the other hand. said that no new places were available for them, as the old colliers who were out of places were entitled to preference; and further, that thi Company would have opened new parts if they could to accommodate the claims of the helpers." It would be to their interest to do so, but under the circumstances they were not capable of doing so. The Com- pany claimed damages for breach of contract. The Bench made an order that the damages be paid. The respective solicitors agreed that the claim should be a set-off against the wages of the workmen. The amount of damages varied, some work- men being liable to if and others to £ 1 los.
