P. Nicholas, Pontypridd, the legal representative of the work- men, to the effect that the company were quite prepared to withdraw the summonses if an undertaking were given by the men that any future dispute would be referred to the re- presentatives of the two sides and then, failing a settlement, to the company's agent and the miners' agent.-In intimating that the men had accepted his .advice to entertain the proposal of the company, Mr. Nicholas explained that his clients reciprocated the good and kindly feeling which inspired the company, and which they would endeavour to foster in the future.—The Stipen- diary I congratulate the parties on having arrived at suchVa satisfactory settlement, and I sincerely hope that this happy spirit will always prevail between the employers and their employes.
