THE DISCHARGE NOTES QUESTION. THREATENED GENERAL STOPPAGE. A meeting of the workmen's eido of the Sliding- scale Joint Committee, with the addition of members appointed at the last conference, was held at Cardiff, on Tuesday. Mr. D. Morgan presided over the earlier part of the proceedings, in the absence of Mr. W. Abraham, M.P., who was in attendance at the Tyloretown inqutst. Among other matters discussed was the system of discliarge dotes lately introduced by the coal:>wner?. There was an intense feeling of opposition displayed to the system by the representa- tives. It was reported by the Secretary that having received various complaints respecting the discharge note from the workmen of several districts he had consulted with Mr. Abraham, and had endeavoured to arrange for » meeting of the Sliding-scale Joint Committee for Saturday, the 29th inst. Mr. Dalziel's reply to this communication was to the effect that it was impossIble for the owners' side of the committee to arrange a meeting at so early a date, owing to the absence of the chairman and several of the employers' representatives. The meeting then unanimously passed this resolution :—"That Mr. Miles be in- structed to inform Mr. Dalziel that unless a meeting of the Joint Committee be held next Satuiday to dis- cuss the introduction of the discharge note, we feel it our duty to call a general conference of the workmen early next week to consider whether more stringent measures shall be adopted." Mr. Dalziel being pre- sent in the building, Mr. Miles conveyed to him the decision of the meeting, and that gentleman's reply was similar to the former one, after he had communi- cated with Mr. Edward Jones and Mr. Archibald Hood, who had said it was impossible to have a meet- ing of the Joint Committee by Saturday next. The workmen's representatives then resolved to have a general conference on Monday, March 9, at Cardiff, the chairman, vice-chairman, and secretary being in- structed to draw up the agenda for this conference.
