TIN-PLATE MONEY. Workers Discuss Matters at Aberavon. At the Victoria Institute, Port Talbot, on Friday evening a meeting of the tin-platers of the Aberavon district was held in order that explanations might be given by an official of the Tin-platers' Union upon several matters. Mr. Bedford, chairman of the district, presided. —Mr. T. J. Davies said that at the last meeting of the council held at Cardiff the official reports stated that he was the only dissentient respect- ing the adoption of the balance-sheet. That was incorrect, as there were two others besides himself who voted against its adoption. Since the council meeting he had submitted his action to his branch—Mansel—and they had fully en- dorsed his action. The executive had struck £ 799 13s. 9d. off as a deficiency. Mr. Knoyle had stated that the deficiency was JE560 19s. 9d., so that there was a discrepancy between those two amounts. The Mansel branch, after hear- ing his statement, had decided that an explana- tion was necessary, and he asked Mr. Phillips to give one.—Mr. Phillips, the general secretary, said the deficiency had arisen through money being paid away for which they had no vouchers. He (the speaker) thought it was part and parcel of the blunder at Newport. Since 1891 nothing had gone wrong, as their moneys were now invested in a bank at Llanelly. The balance due in 1891 was £ 238 14s.— Mr. W. A. Williams wished to know if the deficiency did not occur in the space of a few months.—Mr. Phillips said it was between April and December, 1891. The treasurer's cash- book was not audited in 1891. but Messrs. Knoyle and Roberts had audited the book in 1892.—Mr. W. A. Williams suggested that if the moneys had been paid away there should have been acknowledgments. -Mr. William Rees advocated that an inquiry be held on the subject.—Mr. David Francis said that the general secretary should have looked into matters more closely.—Mr. Phillips replied that matters had been gone into thoroughly, and at the Newport meeting it was found that branches had been over-credited. The defi- ciency was £278, and not £ 300.—Mr. W. A. Williams wished to know if the executive had a right to wipe off the balance without consulting the branches.- Mr. Phillips replied that they had.— Councillor Thomas moved that the balance- sheet be accepted.—Mr. Jenkin Pugh seconded the motion, which was carried with three dis- sentients only.—A discussion afterwards took place with reference to the Industrial World, in the course of which it was stated that the paper did not pay, and ultimately it was agreed that a committee of investigation should inquire into the working of the paper.
