t Value of Labour Exchanges iir Denbighshire. At the quarterly meetfng of the Den- bighshire County Council, held at Den- bigh, on Friday, the Unemployed Work- men Act Committee reported on the num- ber of unemployed ip the various districts in the county, the report stating thjar there were 95 unemployed in Wrexham district, principally labourers, cartels,, and colliery labourers, with a few skilled" workmen. The report also stated that the Committee resolved that in the opin* ion of the members, one of the chief causes of unemployment in this county is • the difficulty of obtaining-laflb, and .the" high price at which it is held, which dis- courages fcuilding operations, although there is a great demand for houses. Mr J. Wilcoxon moved the adoption of the report, and remarked that there was 'a<" total of 413 out of employment in the dish trict, with a population of 135,000. He" considered the proportion was very smalJ, and hoped that with the opening of labour exchanges means would be found of fin4-r ing work for those at present unemploy-" ed.
