GERMANS AND KIDWELLY COAL. POWERFUL SYNDICATE MOVE. Hamburg, Satuiday.—I have made careful inquiries regarding the negotiations, which are rapidly proceeding, for the purchase by a. German syndicate of the Gwendraeth aai- thracite field in Carmarthenshire. The firm of De Freitas, which bought the Whitworth field, is not concerned tnl-he present deal, but the shareholders include ti.e powerful Rhemisch-Westphalische Koh- len Syndicate, and the Kohlen Depot Gesell- schaft. The latter has already established coaling stations at numerous strategic points, and Ú; about to build a vast depot at Hamburg. The desire for Welsh mines, which will render them independent of the British markets in supplying these depots, is natur- ally keen. Some English capital has been invested in the new syndicate.—"Daily Mail." PRIME MINISTER AND THE RE- PORTED KIDWELLY DEAL.

Sir H. Campbell-Bannerman: The Gov- ernment have no information at their dis- posal. A similar question was addressed to the late Prime Minister on more than one occasion towards the close of the last ses- sion, and I can only repeat what he said on August 1, viz., that we have no reason to believe that there is a German syndicate in treaty for any area of the same coal which is used by the Navy. With respect to the second part of the question, the Ad- miralty aTe satisfied that there is no neces- sity for taking any steps in the matter, and in that view the Government generally con- cur.
