THE ROADS IN DOWLAIS COLLIERIES. I A general meeting of the South Wales Institute of Engineers took place at Park-plaoe, Cardiff, on Thurs- day afternoon, under the presidency of Mr. Arthur J. Stevens. A discussion took place on Jordan's tipping coal screen," and Mr. Robert Jordan replied to some of the criticism made on his paper at the last meeting. In the course of the discussion Mr. H. W. Martin, of Dowlais, stated that he proposed to increase the width of the roads in the colliery. The probabil- ity was that the hours of working might get shorter, and what they had to consider was how to get up a very largo quantity in a short time. At present the underground roads at Dowlais were 2ft. llin. in width, and he proposed increasing the width to width, and he proposed increasing the width to 3ft. 2in., and have suitable trams made for carrying Oil an average at least two tons. The discussion was adjourned.
