Strike Not Que tion fop South Wales Only. Mr. Wm. Abraham (Mabon), M.P., made an important statement at the monthly meeting of the Rhondda Miners at Porth on Tuesday. Referring to the proposal of the Coalowners' Association to tender notices on October 1st on the question of the payment of a bonus turn for the afternoon shift, he said that the South Wales miners' leaders had not re- ceived a single word officially from the employers as to what they contemplated doing, and all they knew was what ap- peared in the Press. It had been asserted, he said, that when the Eight Hours Bill was under discussion, the coalowners and the public had been told over and over again by the men's leaders that its pass- ing would not mean any difference in the output of coal. That statement was only in part, and as such was incorrect and misleading. What the leaders of the men had said from the very commencement, and what they still continued to say, was that after the lapse of some time to make the necessary changes for the employers to bring coal from the face to the surface, there would be no diminution, and they believed that the workmen would be able to produce quite the same number of tons of coal as they did pre- viously, provided they were given clear- ances and facilities for working. The miners' leaders were anxious to give the Act a fair trial, but he maintained that the objection to the arrangement by which could have been put into force, and still maintain the output, had come not from, the men, but from the employers. This attitude, he was afraid, was actuated by a desire to try and prove that the Mines Eight Hour's Act was impracticable and that it should be repealed. But it might as well be said once and for all that the Act had come to stay (hear, hear). If any change were made it would not, they could depend upon it, be in the direction of lengthening the hours of working (hear, hear). He was glad of the oppor- tunity to be able to tell the workmen that, notwithstanding the present diffi- culties and loss of wages that some of them were suffering, time and justice would see that the wages question would be adjusted. He wanted the employers to understand that while they were suffering for the moment, they were re- solved that there would be no increase in the number of hours worked under- ground (applause). It would never come about with his consent that the South Wales district would work one minute longer than any other district in the United Kingdom (hear, hear). Dealing with the payment of bonus turns and overtime, which was provided for in Clause 3 of the provisional agree- ment, and which vested in a committee of the Conciliation Board power to settle these matters, and, in the event of a failure to agree, made provision for the tendering of notices on either side, what had happened, he declared, was that the employers, instead of discussing the various items arising with the workmen as specifically provided for in the agree- ment, took the first opportunity of knock- ing off all payments made, not only for overtime, but for overtime allowances hitherto granted the men as part pay- ment of their wages, notwithstanding that it was agreed that such payments were to continue. In fact., the employers had over-ridden the provisions contained in the agreement. That sort of thing went on until the 21st of August, when the employers found out their mistake, and they then agreed to the clause being renewed. This was two months after the settlement on the 30th of June, and the whole misunderstanding in connection therewith was due to the contravention of Clause 3 by the employers, and it was they who were therefore the responsible parties in the matter. Efforts were made in the meantime to adjust the position, and in some cases the disputes were dis- posed of and order restored. The out- puts at those places where matters had been adjusted had reached their normal level. In some cases Mi". Watts Morgan had informed them that the outputs had actually improved on the corresponding period of last year. What had happened was that on the 20th July the employers met and passed a resolution, which was sent out in circular form, prohibiting colliery managers making any arrange- ments in regard to these payments with- out coming before the sub-committee. The result was to prevent all attempts being made to bring, about order. At the Albion Colliery, Cilrynydd, an arrangement had been come to with the management with reference to the working of the afternoon shift, the men deciding to 'work: con- ditionally upon their being paid the rate agreed upon by the Overtime Sub-Com- mittee, but the resolution agreed to by the owners on the 20th July deciding not to pay any bonus in connection with the afternoon shift rendered this arrange- ment null and void, and the men naturally refused: to work any longer. The work- men's side was therefore in this position. The Coalowners' Association had set aside the machinery of the Conciliation Board to settle both the ordinary disputes with regard to the traffic men and the bonus turn, and had taken everything into their own hands. Mr. Watts Morgan, the chair- man of the workmen's side of the Over- time Committee, had told them that at the last meeting of the committee objec- tions were raised which were frivolous in their character, so that the committee were unable to do anything except mark time. The whole issue upon which the pro- posal to give notices turned was upon the payment of the bonus turn to the men engaged on the afternoon shifts, so that it really resolved itself into one of pay- ment. This was a question that ought to be settled without this threat—(hear, hear)—without this Dreadnought being prepared to set on the workers of the coalfield (hear, hear). It was this which constituted the seriousness of the situa- tion. The owners had refused to accept the services of the conciliatory peace men of the General Federation. In the face of present circumstances, it was only right to ask the owners' representatives on the Conciliation Board what powers they possessed to settle disputes in future. The Coalowners' Association had taken matters into their own hands, and it would appear that the owners' represen- tatives on the Conciliation Board would have no power to settle. It was not his wish to create any ill feeling if it could be avoided, and all he could say was that, having taken the course which they now proposed of having either a general or a partial lock-out—if either was brought about, the question would be settled very easily as to whether it should be left a South Wales question or a general one. He was not then alluding: to the 20th Rule and so forth, but either a general or partial lock-out would become a matter for the M.F.G.B., and not for South Wales alone to deal with (applause). The annual conference of the M.F.G.B. would take place early next month, so that there would be an opportunity and ample time given to discuss the question and decide upon a general line of policy (applause).
District Officials Vindicated. Mr. DL Watts Morgan (agent and secre- tary) drew attention to a letter which had appeared in the Rhondda Leader and another paper criticising the action of the district officials, and suggesting that the men employed at the Tynybedw Colliery, Pentre, had been induced to accept a reduction in their wages. Mr. Morgan then went on to explain in detail the circumstances attending the negotia- tions at the Tynybedw Colliery. He was, he said, not altogether pleased at the prospect. The management appeared to be desirous of doing away with the system of the payments of bonuses to the night- men, and it was suggested that the bonus should be merged in the standard rate of wages to be paid to the men. They, however, contended that this equivalent I should be a little lower than the previous rate of wages, plus one-fifth of the bonus, per day.. In the case of the timbermen, the compromise rate was fixed at 5s. 5d. per day. The previous rate was 4s. 8-|d., which, with the proportionate part of the bonus—lid.—would make 5s. 7td. The previous wage of the assistant timbermen was 3s. lid., and the bonus portion for the day would be 7.1d., making 3s. 9d. The management consented to pay 3s. 7d. The wages of the ripners were previously 4s. 3d. per day, and the proportionate bonus would be 10d., making 5s. Id. The, management offered 4s. 8d. per day as a compromise, but as the result of the nego- tiations thev agreed to the payment of 4s. lOd. per day. In the case of the labourers, their wages were 2s. 10s., one- fifth bonus 7d., making a total of 3s. 5d. In this, case 3s. 4d. per day was secured for the men, while 3s. 2d. per day was the offer made. With regard to the hauliers, they had been in receipt of 3s. lO^d. per day, which, with a day's proportion of tine bonus of 9d., would total 4s. 7*d. In this instance the management consented to the payment of 4s. 6d. So that in each instance the management, as the result of the nego- tiations, agreed to advances being made on their first offers to each grade of workmen. These amended proposals, which had been secured after he (Mr. Morgan) had personally taken a great deal of trouble in the matter with the view of ensuring the best possible terms, were submitted to the men, who were at perfect liberty either to accept or reject the terms, which were the best that could be secured as a compromise and the abolition of the bonus turn. It was not. therefore, fair to suggest that the men had in any way been coerced to accept these terms, as there was absolutely no obligation upon them to accept these alternative proposals unless they chose to do so in their own interests. A strong feeling of resentment was manifest in the meeting at the attack made upon Mr. D. Watts Morgan and his colleagues. A delegate remarked that although he personally never spared the officials of the district any criticism whenever he thought circumstances called for such criticism, he deplored the fact that such unjustified reflections were cast upon Mr. Morgan and also his colleagues. They were at the present juncture 'in very straitened circumstances as workmen, and he thought that the district should place on record its absolute confidence m what Mr. Morgan had done. Other delegates also expressed strong resentment at the scurrilous reports which had been circulated, and a resolution was unanimously agreed to expressing absolute confidence in Mr. Morgan, strongly depre- cating as being absolutely baseless the letter in question, and requesting the Rhondda Leader to give publicity to the terms of the resolution.
Football. t. Rugby. TREORCHY OLD BOYS 4pts., TRS- HERBERT ATHLETICS 0. On the New Athletic Grounds, Treorchy, on Monday, the first round for the medals in the knock-out competition of the Old Boy*' League was played between the above two teams. Each team fielded a strong side, and as neither had played a previous match this season, no opinion was expressed as to who would be the probable victors. From the kick-off until half-time honours were divided, and no score resulted, although Treorchy had the wind to their advantage. After the interval the home team attacked, and a mark was made by them right under the Treherbert posts, but three points were lost for Treorchy through a very poor kick for goal. Then the visitors, with the wind in their favour, set up a hot attack. Nothing, however, was scored. The issue was still in doubt, and just as the spectators were anticipating a pointless draw, the home forwards brought off a great rush, and D. Williams, picking up at top speed, dropped a goal in a most astonishing manner. This decided the game almost at the last moment, and it was generally felt that Treherbert experienced the hardest of luck in just losing by a kick. The teams could not have been more evenly matched, and in considering the merits of both sides a draw would have been a fairer result. The visiting pack— a good one, by the way—played up to top form, and it was admirably led by, J. Culverhouse. Emrys Davies, the Tre- herbert outside half, was a tower of strength to his side. The Treherbert i quartet could have done better in attack. Salisbury, at full-back, was a splendid tackier, and W. Jones, the Treorchy custodian, was really great, especially in fielding and touch finding. HULL KINGSTON ROVERS 22pts., TREHERBERT (N.U.) 10. The football season was opened at Tre- herbort on Saturday by a visit from Hull Kingston Rovers, the crack team of York- shire. The Rovers had defeated Oldham on the previous Saturday, and after this feat it was hardly expected that Treher- bert would win the first match of the season. The homesters were, however, well represented, and capable of making a, good fight against their formidable oppo- nents. The weather was fine, and a good crowd of spectators was present when the Rovers kicked off. The visitors attacked strongly, and within a few minutes they had almost scored, good tackling by Edwards and Abe Evans averting a try. Furman, the Rovers' half, was injured and had to leave the field. Barron took his place, and soon after nearly got over after a strong; run from mid-field. Phil Thomas then made a burst and gave the ball up to Mann who scored under the posts. Carmichael easily converted. The visitors continued to have the better of the: play, but the home defence was very keen, and the Rovers were well kept out, until, by combined play between Sand- ham, Huglies, and Huskins, the latter notched the visitors' second try, which Carmichael again converted. Treherbert now invaded the Hull territory. A free- kick was awarded them in a good posi- tion, from which Fitzgerald placed a goal. The interval was signalled shortly after- wards. Treherbert roused themselves wonder- fully in the second half and some brilliant football ensued. After some very exciting play, of which Treherbert had the better, I Francis received the ball from Abbey Thomas, and raced over the line with the finest try of the match. Fitzgerald failed to add the extras." This was quickly followed by another try for Treherbert. From a scrum on the Rovers' line the ball was kicked over the line, and J. Thomas dashing in between two of the visitors, pounced on the ball and scored. Fitz- gerald converted amidst great enthusiasm. Treherbert's form seemed to fall off after this, and Hull scored two more tries, which Carmichael converted. Carmichael also added a penalty goal to the score. LLWYNYPIA 27pts., ADAMSD0WN 0. Llwynypia opened their season on Satur- day last under very favourable conditions. The homesters bombarded the visitors' line from the outset, and after some ex- cellent passing Brychan Jones, the cap- tain, got over with the first try of the season. No goal resulted. This was fol- lowed by some pretty handling, and it was early apparent that Llwynypia had taken full measure of their opponents. Mark Lewis got over with a pretty try, and D. 0. John, a new centre, followed close on his heels with a third, which Richards converted. A penalty goal from an awkward angle was kicked by Richards, the home custodian, amidst applause. In the second half, Richards kicked another penalty goal, and the score was further added to by B. Jones and D. O. John (converted). PENYGRAIG 24pts., PENCOED 0. At the Mid-Rhondda Athletic Grounds, Tonypandy, before a moderate gate. Ike Thomas opened the scoring by dropping a fine goal in the visitors' 25. A smart opening by the Rev. S. Jones put D. R. Davies in with the first try, which was subsequently followed by a forward rush, T. Ponsford and Beasant being prominent, the latter scoring. At the interval Penygraig led by 10 r points, and Hemmings by smart play scored two tries, Evan Evans and Ponsford also contributing a try apiece. There was an improvement all round in the team, but the players have a lot to do to come up to class form. However, it is early yet to complain, and with training there will probably be an improvement shortly. B. Williams and Chatterton were the pick of the visitors. TREORCHY OLD BOYS 8pts., MACHEN 0. Treorchy Old Boys defeated Machen on Saturday at Machen by 8 points to nil. George Evans converted the try scored by Edward Knapgate, and Will (Lyon) Jones kicked a penalty goal. This match has been described as a shambles." Tom Lewis cut a finger badly, and Charles Vaughan received a nasty kick above the eye, whilst a Machenite received severe injuries. Mr. T. Owen, Porth, referee'd.
Nantymoel s Prospects. The Nantymoel W.U. Rugby Football Club opened its season on Monday iifter- noon last at the Big Field, when a match was played between the Probables and Possibles. The game ended in a win for the Probables after a ragged display by both sides. The new players were of only moderate calibre, there being no one of conspicuous merit. The general opinion is that the club must again this season depend upon its last year's successful team to keep up its reputation. A few alterations may be made in the pack to give it additional weight. Following the natch, the committee met, and the fol- ii.ving were selected to meet Treorchy nt Treorchy on Saturday next: —Full- back, Harry Davies; three-quarter backs, A. Cole, Jack Chilcott (captain), A. Lloyd and J. Beck; half-backs, J. Boobyer and Llew. Griffiths; forwards (selected from), Jim Chilcott, W. Perkins, Mike Cran- stone, Dan Morris, Smith, Floyd, Price Davies, Crocker, Tuss Williams, and Webber.
Association. TREHARRIS 2gls., MARDY 1. The opening score for Treharris came when the first moiety was nigh finished, and was the result of well-conceived play. Wallace Jones secured, and being hemmed in by two or three of his oppo- nents, he dexterously tapped the leather to Abley, who trickily beat Griffiths and with great judgment landed the ball past Williams. The effort was loudly and deservedly applauded. Mardy's equaliser was shot by Tite from among a bunch of forwards in front of the home goal. BrownhilL had no chance to save. The homesters' winning goal came again from Abley, Phillips being responsible for clever work preceding the score. Mardy made strenuous efforts to get on level terms, but the play of the home intermediate line was praiseworthy, Tagg Williams especially being a host in himself, and being well supported by Martin. For Mardy the shining light was un- doubtedly Williams, the custodian, but for whom the score must have reached double figures. Shots rained upon him from the opposing halves and forwards, but his fearless, masterly display was brilliant in the extreme. TON lgl., ABERDARE, 0. This return game, the first of the Southern League games played at the Ynys Ground, was a great attraction. Immediately after the start Ton became aggressive, and play for some time was confined to the visitors1' territory. Lewis made a strong effort to clear, but was nicely stopped by Fyfe. A little after, Tom Davies sent in a shot, but kicked too high. Aberdare soon took the ball to the centre, and then some smart play on the left wing was performed by Evans, one of the home halves. Ton were awarded several free kicks, and the goal was in danger, but some goj f'n. opportunities were lost by Ton. From a corner kick, Tom Davies just misled to send the leather home. Tyler, the visiting goalkeeper, brought off some beautiful saves, which elicited loud applause. Goode and Lewis, for Aber- dare, saved their side time after time. Fyfe, receiving from Parry, sent in a lovely shot, and it was only the wonder- ful save of Tyler that prevented a goal being registered. Ton made many vain efforts to score, but the shooting was poor. At half-time there was no score. After the restart Ton again pressed, and Reed lost a certain goal by hesi tating. Aberdare took the ball right down tne field, and Percival brought off a good save. Some exciting play was next wit- nessed in front of the Aberdare goal, and Will Jones sent in a stinging shot, which only barely missed the net. The visitors' backs again relieved and the Ton half became the venue of play. Parry next succeeded by a beautiful dribble in taking the ball nearly the length of the field, and centred to a nicety to Fyfe, who coolly headed the ball into the net amidst

Eczema for 3 Generations. ZAM-BUK COMPLETELY STAMPS OUT BAD CASE' OF HEREDITARY DISEASE. Another of those wonderful cures of skin-disease that have set the seal on Zam-Buk's fame as a pure herbal healer of unprecedented power has just come to light in London. Eczema had run through three generations of the family of Mrs. E. Cronin., wife of a colour. printer, of 21, Victoria Road, High Street, Plaistow, E., and despite the best endeavours of doctors and hospital specialists the disease could neither be cured nor its growth checked until Zam-Buk completely stamped out the hereditary eczema in Mrs. Cronin, her daughters, and grandchildren. To a London journalist who specially investigated this remarkable case, Mrs. Cronin, who is now 52, said —" When I was 25 I began to suffer from eczema, which I believe I got from a second-hand dress I bought. After the first time I wore the dress I found my forearms itched veiy much, and soon the skin became inflamed. I became positively alarmed when these burning patches spread to my legs, body, head, and face. Some of the inflamed places were as big as a saucer. The skin burned and smarted, and then died away and peeled off. A doctor told me I had contracted a very bad form of skin disease, which it would probably be impossible to cure. For two years I attended his surgery twice a week, and used the ointment he"gave me, but there was not the slightest improve- ment. Then I went for a long time to St. Bartholomew's Hospital, and after- wards I attended other hospitals and dispensaries and several private doctors. But at the end of 25 years' careful treat- ment my skin was still covered with the burning and itching disease. What was worse, three out of four of my children born after I had contracted j suffered from the same disease, and two grandchildren, children of dif- ferent daughters, also suffered in the same way immediately after birth. For- tunately, about three years ago I began to use Zam-Buk. To my great surprise, the rough, inflamed patches were cooled by Zam-Buk. Patch after patch of the eczema, was cleared away and always in each place a new skin grew. My daughters seeing Zam-Buk's great success in my case used the balm for themselves and their children. All six who were affected with the eczema have now been completely cured by Zam-Buk, and there is now not a trace of the disease in our family. Zam-Buk has thoroughly cured a 'horrid skin-disease that caused great distress amongst three generations of our family. SiTots for
Percival, Ton's new goalkeeper, hails from Wrexham, and comes with a good reputation. He has a good kick, and no doubt will be a decided acquisition to the team. Evans, the Ton half, played last year for Wrexham. Two seasons before he figured in the ranks of the Chester men. He is a very cool player, has. plenty of confidence, and should make a name for himself in Welsh football. J. H. Jones is an old Rogerstone boy, who has captained Wolverhampton Wan- derers Reserves. Claude Williams, from Weymouth, has youth on his side, and is already a big favourite with the crowd on the Ynys. Perhaps rather young to engage in senior football, he no doubt has a bright future before him. Thompson, London, is also a youngster, and is an ex-international schoolboy. Like his colleague from Weymouth, his play is very promising. Parry (left wing) was in excellent form on Monday last and played a great game against Aberdare. He was the shining light of his side. The Porth Y.M.C.A. are determined to run a good football team this season. They have secured the services of some fine exponents of the code, and no mis- take about it. As a custodian W. Mortimer will take a lot of whacking. He kicks well both right and left, while for agility he is -ar excellence. More will be heard of Mortimer yet awhile. A very fine centre-half is Leyshon. He feeds" his wings and his forwards in first-class style. H. Tipney is no novice. He is a good inside-left. If he maintains his present form, his position will be secure, and we venture to predict that more will yet be heard of him in senior clubs. Mog Evans, the old Porth centre-half. is once more demonstrating his skill as a footballer. Evans has a very good record as centre-half, and could have easily adorned one of the First League clubs had he remained a footballer. He gave a very fine exhibition of the game on Saturday, and was more than responsible for the severe defeat inflicted upon Barry Dock Albions. Trehafod are more than pleased to regain Evans. All football club secretaries should not fail to visit Messrs. Lougher and Sons' establishment, Market Square, Pty- pridd, for very fine value in footballs.

great enthusiasm. Parry next sent a beautiful shot from a very difficult angle and had hard lines in failing to net the ball. Aberdare played up well to the end, but were no longer dangerous. PORTH Y.M.C.A. lgl., FERNDALE 0. A very pretty game was witnessed between the above teams on Saturday last at the Glynfach Field, Cymmer. Ex- ceptionally clever football for juniors was displayed on both sides, Ind the pace was hot from start to finish. The brilliant goalie of Ferndale was, however, very conspicuous and ofttimes saved appa- rently impossible shots. But an excel- lent forward rush, a movement initiated by D. Richards, resulted in a smart goal sent home by Leyshon. Ferndale endea- voured with all their best tactics to equalise, but failed after some very fine efforts. HAFOD JUNIORS 4gls., BARRY DOCK ALBIONS 1. The above teams encountered each other on Saturday last at Trehafod, and gave a very fair exhibition of the Soccer code. The Juniors took up the attack very determinedly at the commencement of the game, and did not relax their pressure until they had very conclusively inflicted a severe defeat upon their oppo- nents by 4 goals to 1. It was feared at first that the Juniors would be found wanting, as they were trying several new men, but though thus handicapped, their combination was almost machine-like in its operation and effect upon the Albions, who were fortunate in escaping a worse defeat. Hugh Jones, Solloway, and D. Griffiths played well, while Mog Evans, the old Porthite, excelled himself, and reminded one of his former days.
