CARELESS/JESS IN THE MIPE. ..#" Renlarkable fyhondda Case. A MATCH TL.-T COST A SOVEREIGN. If there is any workman who is a source of danger to his fellow workers, that man is the careless miner. Carelessness in Rhondda mines has been responsible for many a dark page in the history of the premier Welsh coal-field, and for that the local magistrates are bringing home to the miners of this district the fact that care- lessness and negligence, which may possibly re- sult in serious loss of life, are to be met with severe penalties. It seems strange that there should be any necessity for penalising a man in order to make him have regard for his own safety; but, sad to say, such a necessity does exist even in this enlightened age. Mr Ignatius Williams (stipendiary) and odiei justices, had before them on Thursday, at Porth Police Court, a case in which Edward John Rando, labourer, Tylorstown, was summoned for committing a breach of the 240th special rule of the Ferndale Collieries. John Evans, manager of No. 1 Ferndale Col- lieries, said defendant was employed as a night labourer at the No. 7 Colliery Evan Lewis, ripper, said that on a recent morning the defendant was in the locking station in the (pih, and drew a match out of his pocket and burnt it in the lamp. Alfred Clarke, a collier, gave evidence that the defendant drew a match out of his pocket and burnt it in the lamp. In answer to the Bench defendant said that he was not aware that he had a match in his pocket, but thought that he had a nail to clean the wick. On finding the match he burnt it for safety. The Stipendiary thought the defendant had taken the match to the pit through carelessness, and fined him 91.
