THE DURHAM COI,LIERS AND THE WAGES QUESTION. The coal owners of the county of Durham have had a second conference with a deputation from the Durham Miners' Association to discuss the question of wages and other matters. The yearly bond is now abolished and after some discussion it was agreed that a fort- night's notice on either side should be sufficient to ter- minate to an agreement. With regard to wages, the men asked for an advance of 35 per cent. on the prices paid in April, 1871; or that an average should be struck between the rates of wages at present in force in South Lancashire and Northumberland, ani that an advance should be made in wages in Durham sufficient to place them on a footing with the rates of remuneration in those two counties. The masters, however, offered to make the advance 20 per cent. on all prices over and above the "consideration money" paid in April last. The mem- bers of the deputation informed the employers that they could not accept the offer made, their instructions from the body of the men they represented being only to accept an advance of 35 per cent. and nothing else. The question of wages not being settled, other subjects, including the hours of labour for boys, &c., were left over.
