COLLIEP. SICK AND DISABLEMENT FUND. —The adjourned meeting of the committee of management of the above fund was held on Friday evening, at the Forge Hammer Inn. In the absence of the president, Mr. David Jones, one of the vice-presidents, in the i person of Mr. William Lewis, was voted to the chair, and there were also present—Mr. Isaac Lewis, Mr. Thomas Davies (Gellifaelog), Mr. Richard Thomas, Sir. Alfred Williams, Mr. William Rogers, Mr. John (Jones, Mr. Abraham Jones (treasurer), and Mr. David Thomas (secretary). The principal business of the evening was the consideration of application for relief from persons whose cases had been investi- goated by the stewards since the last meeting. The first was that of a man who had sustained what was feared would be a permanent disablement, and who had applied for assistance to start him in business as an oil seller. The man, it transpired, was a member of the Permanent Provident fund, and it was pointed out that if he were set up in business either by the Disablement Fund Committee or by the act of a generous individual he would lose his weekly allow- ance of 8s. from the Permanent Fund. On the other hand the Permanent Fund would be only too glad to set up one of its members in business, and could, for the purpose of doing so, contribute ten times more money than the Disablement Fund could afford. This l>eing the state of things it was decide th.it Mr. -Thomas Da\ies and the treasurer wait upon the man, pointing out the petition to him, and offering to see what could be done for him by the Permanent Fund. The second case was pionounced to be outside the scope of the committee, and the application was ordered to lie on the table until such time as it could l>e dealt with without violating the rules. The third case was that of a man who had been idle for nearly a year, and whose family were in a condition of abjecct poverty. There being no doubt as to the "Ollft ■ of the ca-e a sum of L-5 was unanimously \oted for the man's assistance. A fourth case was less serious than the preceding one, and a grant of £ 2 10s. was made. Mr. Edwin g, O'Neill and Mr..Tame* Collins again attended as a deputation from the North American Indian Minstrels, who had offered to give two thirds of the proceeds of an entertainment for the fund if the committee undertook to carry out all the j arrangements. In the course of discussion it wa-< jiointed out that the committee would be making their annual appeal to the tradesmen in March, and at the same time a lev y of sixpence per head would be made upon the colliers for the new branch of the Disablement Fund, the branch out of which moneys would be granted in cases where the applicant should have been disabled for a period of less than six j months. Under these circumstances the committee could not see their way to accept the offer of the minstrels for a performance, unless the latter were prepared to keep the offer open uncil after the annual collection of subscriptions shall have been made. The Secretary said that he had received a cheque for £ 5 from their worthy chairman of that night's meet- ing (Mr, W illiam Lewis), which was his contribution to the establishment of the new branch of the society to whijh reference has already been made. A ^te of thanks uas heartily accorded Mr. Lewis for his handsome subscription, and the proceedings shortly aiierwiuus lerimuaieu.
