WILL THE RAILWAYMEN STRIKE? This is the question of the hour in in- dustrial circles. The disaster that a railway strike would involve may well be imagined. Traffic would be dislocated, and local industries would be paralysed. The wave of prosperity which now floods the land would suffer a serious set back. Presumably the chief point at issue be- tween the conflicting parties is the re- cognition of the leaders of the A.S.R.S., which this Society demands, and which the Railway Directors refuse, on the grounds, apparently, that the A.S.R.S. ie not considered to be sufficiently repre- sentative of the railway workers. The fact that the Society represents but a minority of the workers would doubtless militate against the success of a, suspen- sion of operat;ons which the workmen might bring about with the view of en- forcing their demands. Besides, we are told that the Associated Society of Enginemen and Firemen will not help the Amalgamated Society should a crisis occur. If the men at the wheel will continue to work, the stoppage will be but partial, and the policy of the strikers a half-hearted affair. Under these cir- ei-instances, a stoppage would not be to the railwayrnen such an effectual method oi securing' their demands as it would be —for instaiicc--to the miners, whose or- ganisation is so complete and general in its application. The voice of the poll on the advisability of striking is now anxiously awaited. It would be well if, in the meantime, efforts were made to bring about a better understanding be- tween the Amalgamated and the Associ- ated, and alsol if the ranks of the men s organisation were strengthened by a very large incursion of recruits from all grades of the service; Before rushing into war-even all industrial war-it is well for one to count the cost first, and consult whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand."
?i.. —. m 11 A" Blackguard." MR. TRAILER AND MR. TOM RICHARDS, M.P. Mr. Trainer, organiser under the aus pices of the I.L.P., held an al fresco meeting near the Co-operative Stores in Park-road, Aberaman, on Monday even- ing test. Mr. Tom Bowen, Mount Hill- street, occupied the chair, and he was supported by Mr. W. W. Price, general secretary of the I.L.P. Branch at A ber dar,e. Mr. Trainer took chiefly as his subjects the question of landlordism and the nationalisation of the land. He re- ferred to the large interests of the Mar- quis of Bute in South Wales, and said that landlords had no desire to induce men to cultivate agricultural lands, be- cause under the present state of things competition was kept up in the inius- trial centres. He pointed out the scarcity of land for burial purposes at Aberdare, and explained how this would be remedied if the control of the land in general was in the hands of the Govern- ment. At the close a number of ques- tions were asked Mr. Trainer, which he answered in vigorous fashion. One mem- ber of the audience asked him Was it true that he (Mr. Trainer) had made an unmanly attack upon Mr. T. Richards, the general secretary of the S.W.M.F., and if so, what were his reasons for it?" In reply Mr. Trainer stated that it was perfectly true that he had criticised Mr T. Richards's action rather severely, but he claimed that he was fully justified in doing so. Mr. Richards did a mean action in referring1 to Socialists as irre- sponsible politicians who touted for cop- pers at the street corners. Mr. Richards himself had been touting in the very same way during strike times, and it was not right for any leader of labour to receive his wages and at the same time speak in such a fashion of men of his own olftss. He (Mr. Trainer) had exer- cised considerable restraint in speaking of that man—nay, he could not call him a man, he was a blackguard'. He would also continue to speak of him and criticise him until he made an abject apology for his words. Another question asked the lecturer was: How can we get the land into the possession of the people p" By compensating the present landowners to the extent of = £ 52,000,000 per annum, which sum they received in ground rents now, and paying rent direct to the Government. This would prevent the exploitation of the land and the people, and help to develop the agricul- tural resources of the country. The final question asked was: What can be done to prevent unemployment, in view of the introduction of machinery P" This question could easily be settled by giving the people more leisure hours, and not allowing machines to be considered as individuals. It was not right that the wealthy people, representing only 17 per cent. of the population, should wallow in filth and luxury upon the money screwed (rat of the people, whilst. 31 per cent, of the people were continually on the vorge of starvation. The only way to remedy this was by the efforts of the I.L.P, and S.D.F. to alter the state of affairs. It would eventually come to a ctage when either the landlords or the advocates of labour would reign supreme, and each side knew that no quarter was to be ex- pected from the other. A meeting was also addressed by Mr. Irainer in the^ open-air at Cwmaman on luesday evening, and he wíl continue his campaign next week at Aberdare.

Kenshole appeared for the former and Mr. W, Thomas defended Mrs. Knight. Mrs. Canning said that she had had an illegitimate child, which had unfortun- ately been fatally burned. Since then the defendant and other persons had made images of a baby and had publicly burned the image, at the same time taunting her that she could have more bastards and dispose of them easily by burning them. On August 20th, when she was walking down Penrhiwceiber- road, Mrs. Knight stood in front of her and prevented her passing, and at last struck her (witness) with her elbow. There was a cross-summons issued by Mrs. Knight against Miss Canning. Mrs. Knight alleged that Miss Canning struck her on the arm, causing a bruise, which she showed to the doctor. A witness named Fanny Smith, 130, Penrhiwceiber-road, gave evidence for Mrs. Knight, but it transpired that witness was in service with Mrs Kni&h brother, Mr. Bennett. Both parties were bound over to the peace for 6 months. PENRHIWCEIBEB THEFTS- d Michael Crowley, Daniel Boweu, E"ua John Sullivan, Penrhiwceiber, velj, charged at the instance of P.S.
