IT CAMBRIAN ASSOCIATION-OF MINERS. MONTHLY MEETING AT TON. THE PARLIAMENTARY FUND TO BE STRENGTHENED. The monthly racing of delegate.* in connection with the Cambrian Association of Minrir- was held on Saturday at the Windsor Hotel. Ton, Ystrad, under the presidency of Mr. Benjamin Morgan. Mr. Evan Jones, Mountain Ash, occupied the vice- chair, and 34 collieries were represented. Mr. W. Abraham, M.P. (Mabon), and Mr. W. Evans, the agent, and Councillor T. Daronwy Isaac (represen- tative on the Sliding-scale Committee) were also present. Considerable discussion took place with reference to the Parliamentary fund. A proposal was received from the Navigation Colliery, Mountain Ash, that instead of adopting the suggestion of the Albion Colliery, viz., that all workmen should pay Is. per annum, they should pay the Parliamentary expenses as workmen con- nected with the division and district, the same to be levied on all collieries in proportion to their numerical strength, subscriptions to be solicited as before from tradesmen and others residing in the district who are of the same political views." Ultimately the following resolution was adopted with unanimity :— That this meeting affirms the principles that the Labour representative of this district in Parliament should be supported by a fund provided by the work- men within the district, assisted by locai tradesmen and friends holding Liberal principles; that the amount per head to be contributed shall be fixed at the annual meeting of the Rbondda Labour and Liberal Association and that the workmen's contri- butions shall be collected by the Miners' Association and transferred to the Labour and Liberal Association. Further, inasmuch as the annual meeting of the Labour and Liberal Association has just been held, this meeting agrees that the first contribution be three- pence per man. to be paid within the next six months. The annual meeting of the South Wales and Monmouthshire Colliery Workmen's Federation, fixed for Monday, was postponed until the 15th of August. It was resolved to support the re-election of all the retiring officers, and to nominate the following for seats on the Executive Committee —Messrs. Henry Bowen, North Navigation W. D. Owen. Tylorstown Archibald Galloway; Evan Jones, Mountain Ash and W. Evans, miners. agent.
