Speech by Mabon, M.P. THE COMPENSATION BILL. A mass meeting of the workmen of the Pen- rhiwceiber Colliery was held on Saturday, under the presidency of Mr James Benboe, to consider grievances which had arisen among the surface men and to hear an address by Mr W. Abraham, M.P. The hon. member said he, like many others, was very sorry that the Compensation Bill had been impaired by the House of Lords. But, notwithstanding that, the Bill would give many benefits which had not been enjoyed before (cheers). With regard to his remarks at the Cambrian Association monthly meeting at Pontypridd, which had been so severely criti- cised by some people, the hon. member observed that though there was no time then to fully explain the reason he recommended, he was certain the meeting would agree with him if they knew fully the real facts of the case (ap- plause). However, since that time the Bill had passed. The obstacles he had in his mind and the danger he conceived of losing the Bill had been removed. So that with regard to the agitation respecting the coatrolling of the out- put they were exactly on the same ground as they were prior to the day on which he made that speech (.cheers). Mr Abraham concluded by remarking that he would give an explanatory statement of his position in regard to the out- put scheme at the miners' conference to be held at Cardiff this week (cheers). After further references by Mabon in respect to the surface men's grievances, the meeting decided to recon- struct the Works' Committee and give a larger representation to them. A cordial vote of thanks to Mr Abraham brought the proceedings to a close.
