"Y Gwir yn erbyn y Eyd. 'I-Kymris Proverb. "Give me, above all other liberties, the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely. according to conscience."—John Milton.
WHAT with the Compensation Act, Contracting Out, No. 2 book, Mabon's Day prosecutions, Amendeil Coal Mines Regulation Act, and new organisation scheme with its bear- ings on the Sliding Scale, the bewilderment into which the South Wales CQllier has tallen in his efforts to unravel all the mysteries surrounding him legally, socially, and philan- thropically is pardonable. Despair, defiance, humility, and boldness seem to reign alternately amongst the mining masses. Occasionally local influences predominate, which are difficult to understand and explain. That the workmen are not followi-og the advice of their accredited leaders and advisOO is palpable. Nothing but this ,.iJ1 explain the peculiar proceedings have occurred during the past fef days. Many times has the illegalit1 and the futility of a 48 hours notice to cease operations been proven, atlJ whilst we have very strong sympatbieØ with the workmen in any efforts may put forth for freedom, adv00# of wages, and Organisation, we iwor regret, in common with all frieO^ the Welsh collier, that money sb° be frittered away in fighting a que9^0* definitely decided in our law cO' The fines imposed by our magistrateS many years ago have given P conclusive that a cessation of operatious after a notice of this kind can only be by "mutual arrangemant."Surel1 there can be xip mutual agreement when one side refuses to accept tpø notice. We offer no opinion as tO the advisability of keeping MaboDs Day or otherwise. The lack of attention to the voice of the leader is also amply demonstrated in the line of action taken in some districts Olor the Permanent Relief .Fund amended scheme. A vote by ballot is takeJJ as to whether the workmen of certain colliery should join or not. The ballot declares conclusively strong majority against, but in couple of hours a mass meeting declare6 most emphatically that a large majority of the same workmen are in favour of joining. To the uninitiated this would appear mysterious. But what are the facts ? Simply that before- and after the ballot is takela all desirous of contracting out" have signed No. 2 Book and the ballot is therefore an useless foroofthty. Again, whilst the rank and file are in these awkward dilemmas, waiting the pro- clamation of a definite policy, and the hoisting of a common standard around whieh to rally, the leaders themselves in some cases are railing at each other, and anxiously awaiting developments on the men's side before adopting a course of action likely to cause further friction. We could in- stance a case where one of the most generous, efficient, and loyal of our colliery medical officers, who attended the whole of the men gratuitously during the late disastrous strike, is uow paid by only one third of the workmen. In other cases even the checkweighers themselves are unpaid. Our natural advice therefore to the leaders under these galling conditions is Educate! Educate Edueate!
