MONDAY, MAY 20, 1895. NOTES & COMMENTS It is an open secret that Messrs. Studt aim at cutting a fresh record with their next hospital fete. Money is being spent on a iaviah scale to ensure a phenomenal success for the event. Considering what has been done by Messrs. Studt in the past. and the excellence of the object sought, it is almost a superfluous procoedmg to bespeak for their efforts the sympathy of! the public. That they must command. But there is asyni} a ;hy which is passive, and a sympathy which is active. It is for the latter quality that we plead in their behalf. The great friendly societies, engaged themselves in a mission practi- cally akin, might do much to assist the efforts put forth for the best of our institu- tions. Could they not for the sake of the hospital — the refuge of many "f their rnembiri—nnd for the sake of such loyal brothers as Messrs. Stivlt have proved themselves to be, lend a helping Hand by making the public procession on the 10th and 11th July their own? Probably the mere suggestion of such a thing will be enough to set the needful maehineiy m motion. If ever- a trade called for serious thought and a strong hand the essentially Welsh one of producing tin-plates does at the present time. It shows no certain signs of recovering from the prolonged depression which has completely demoralized whole districts; the manufacturers as a class have no definite idea. of action, aud the workmen are Hying in batches across the Atlantic. Whatever might be the result of a sagacious plan of campaign conducted with spirit against American competition. there can be no reasonable doubt as to the issue of this policy of drift. Is it not about time that the realities of the situation wcre faced, and ggnnte. definite course decided upon for making the best of it ? The wage-rate has been turned topsy- turvy. At Landore the workmen after many months of enforced idleness, during which they have received practically no help whatever, have been compelled by their necessities to consent to a reduction in wages equal to about 2'2 per cent. They will be blamed for it, but what are men to do when bread for themselves and their families cannot otherwise be obtained. The consequences predicted to follow from isolat3d attempts to enforce the proposals of the Board of Control have been suffered at Pontardulais and Briton Ferry, where the workmen have borne all the hardships of a strike in the henest pursuit of a pian, which required for success a virtually united efiort throughout the trade The present con- dition of things is becoming intolerable. Employers turn to what they consider the remedy nearest at hand—further reduc- tions in wages, and, on the other side, tiie counsel offered by the Union resolves itself into an appeal for subscriptions. I. That further inroads on the wage-list 1 would be permanently beneficial is extremely doubtful. Tu begin with, the possibility of such a:i occurrence is calcu- lated to keep orders out of the market by inducing the dealers to expect another drop in prices. Then if the Americans can with their big wages successfully compete with their Welsh rivals at the prices now ruling it may once for all be conceded that their position is impregnable. To attempt to squeeze them by means of another cut at wages is to invite the re-opening of the wages question in the States, when the rush of Welsh tin-platers has overstocked the American market for this class of skilled labour. Every reduction effected in tillS country tends to increase the volumo of emigration and indirectly strengthens the American employers for the day when they f ihfiy determitru tv reduce their labour bill. I' One of the shrewdest men in the trade used to say-at;ti he had many supporters among his fellow-employers—that, so long as Wales possessed a ruonopoiv of the trade it was really immaterial whether the standard rate of 1874 was maintained or I doubled, providing the wages were uniform. We compete with each other, that's all," he would say, If and while all pay the same wagts it does not matter what the ia:e is within reason." Circumstances have altered siuce then. It is unquestionable that the monopoly has passed away from Wa'ea, The contingency which he regarded as remote is with us, And un- fortunately every man appears to have his own idea how the contingency is to b", met. Hence divided counsels and a policy of drifting. Employers seem to think that all left them to do is a competition in cutting down wages, as if the latter had no limit. I and as if they had only to consider their rivals at home. The situation calls for a more comprehensive and farseeing treat- ment. The first requirement is trust- worthy knowledge respecting the extent and prospects of American compaction. Each firm has its own sources of informa- tion, and if all combined to sift and com- pare that which they have learned it might be possible to form a coriejt judgment. From this point to the adoption of a plan of action adjusted to the requirements, would be a short step. United the employers have really never been in pros- perity. but intadversity they surely can be sufficiently united to make an eiTorc to save the industry from complete disaster, The workmen, as a class, have not shown themselves unreasonable. They have naturally resisted reduction as far as possible no class willingly submits to the loss of money, especially when unconvinced that it is necessary. This il-, not the time for the beit-ng of war-drums, and a strike, by which ever side provoked, would be a crime and a folly since one inevitable result of it would be that an immense impetus would be given to the American industry. Infinitely wiser wouid it be for employers and employed to draw closer togethei as victims of a depression which afflicts them all in com- mon, and see whether out of their com- bined wisdom a plan cannot be produced adapted to the circumstances. One thing not to be ignored is the expediency of every works in the trade being represented if possible eo that whatever be determined upon shall have the necessary moral sup- port essential to success. Whatever the wago3 be, the permanent interests of the trade require that they should h0 uniform, and that an end should 1 e put to the diamond-cut-diamond." process which affords no hope of iinality, and keeps the industry in a state of dangerous fermentatioi
