HAFOD MINERS AND THE EIGHT HOURS ACT.-A general meeting of the miners of the Hafod Colliery, was held in the Pub- lic Hall, on Friday evening, when the work of the Hafod Committee respecting the Eight Hours Act arrangements was confirmed. The working arrangements of the Hafod Colliery are less affected by the new Act, than other collieries in North Wales, owing to the work of the Miners' Committee in anticipating the various changes. Whilst many collieries in North Wales have had to arrange for the half hour breakfast time each day, the Hafod Colliery has for a cbnsiderable number of years had in force an arrangement where- by each man and boy engaged in the mine receives ample time for a meal, and that without having to stop the winding and hauling engines, or in any way interfer- I ing with the continuous working of the mine.—In reply to enquiries, we find that so far, the working of the new Act has I gone on very satisfactorily, and no out- standing cause for complaint on either side is felt. The Hafod Committee and Mr Dennis, some little time before the coming of the new Act into force, arrang- ed that any cause for complaint under the new conditions should be discussed by both sides with a view to an amicable settlement. The satisfactory and smooth running of the Colliery's affairs, speaks very creditably for the efficient way in which the Hafod Committee have worked in the past, and of the masters' willing- ness and readiness to adjust grievances.
