THE ASSESSMENT OF COLLIERIES IN THE MERTHYR UNION. A REDUCTION OF 5 PER CENT. GRANTED. Representatives of the proprietors of the various collieries situated within the Merthyr Union waited upon the Assessment Committee on Saturday for the purpose of appealing for a reduction in the valuation of their several properties. The follow- ing is a list of the gentlemen constituting the deputation and the interests on behalf of which they appeared Mr. Rees Jones, Harris's Naviga- tion Mr. Evans, Cyfarthfa Mr. Bailey, Plymouth; Mr. James, Dowlais Mr. Bell, Nixon's Navigation Mr. Thomas, Gadlys; Mr. Evens, Werfa; Mr. Harris, Brogden and Co.; Mr. Matthews, Rhyinney; and Mr. James Lewis, Aberdare. Mr. REES JONES, addressing the committee, said they were there because they thought the time had come when it was the bounden duty of all of them, as representatives of the various interests with which they were identified, to place before the committee with the greatest respect, but at the same time with the greatest force, their claim to a review of the general situation as regarded their assessment to the relief of the poor. The com- mittee were good enough last year to put them up 7J per cent. Whether it was right or whether it was wrong.it was acquiesced in by the trade at large. Why the coal trade should be singled out for ex- ceptional actior when the committee thought fit tore-adjust the incidence of taxation was to him— here he spoke for himself alone-an inscrutable mystery. There were other interests that ought to be dealt with in the same way. After some discussion, those members of the deputation who were not guardians and like- wise the members of the press were requested to retire, and, after a short ronsultation in camera, the committee, upon the motion of Mr. David Davies, seconded by Mr. Thomas Jenkins, passed the follow- ing resolution:—" That the valuation of the col- liery properties of this union be reduced by 5 per cent."
