The North Wales Coal Owners' Association. A joint conference of the North Wales Coal Owners' Association and the Denbigh- shire and Flintshire Miners' Federation was held at Wrexham on Friday to consider the question of charging Is 8d' per ton extra for colliers' cottage coal. It was said that the workmen considered that the proposal in- volved a breach of contract on the part of the employers, as the colliers had been get- ting this coal at a reduced price for -years past. Since the Conciliation Board had been formed the wages had been advanced by 7! per cent., but the extra charges for colliers' coal brought this down to 6 per cent. Considerable discussion ensued, and the decision arrived at was that the extra charge should be lOd instead of Is 8d, that those who had been chargedls 8d should have the amount refunded to them, and that with the view of avoiding a strike the miners should be granted a fortnight in which to consider these terms.—A special meeting of the workmert at Hafod Colliery, Ruabon, was held in the evening. The agent and the other delegates explained the decision ar- rived at by the ccalowners in the afternoon. The action of the coalowners was strongly condemned, and the meeting pledged itself to stand by a former resolution to come out on strike unless the coal is supplied to them at the old rate—viz., 6s per ton.
