THE THREATENED RAILWAY STRIKE. Once more differences have arisen between the railway men and their em- ployers in Cardiff and the. district, and, judging by the tone and attitude of the former at their meetings yesterday, thero i.s trouble ahead. It is very much to be regretted from an points of view that t hese labour troubles should spring up from time to time. If the evil conse- quences attendant upon strikes and lock- outs could be confined to the parties at issue alone it would he easier to bear with them. But that is impossible. The com- munity is one large family, the members being related to and interdependent upon one another, so that a dislocation of labour in one trade or industry affects directly or indirectly all other trades and industries, and this a railway strike does in particu- lar. It touches the community at all points, Modcwn life is so bound up with the rail- way system that a strike is a very serious matter and causes great inconvenience and irritation all round. With one rotable exception the local railwaytrouhles have generally been smoothed over just in the nick of time, and all that the public can do is to hope that a way out of the present difficulty may be discovered without resorting to extreme measures. The issue a.s between parties is definite and clear enough; on that point, at any rate, the men's demands are not weakened by ambiguity. What is equally clear is that this is about as inopportune a time to ask a railway company for better conditions could well be conceived for the great increase in the price of coal has played havoc with railway dividends. This will probably not weigh with the men. They have established their right to sell their labour at the highest price they can get, and that. is what they arc doing. Capital will be no less backward in driv- ing a bargain, and while the fight lasts the unfortunate public, which is compeUed ??o share the disadvantages but not the beneuts nfastrike-if there are any will have to be cuntent with grinning and bearing it.
