THE NORTH WALES SLATE TRADE. 0 ALLEGED PERMANENT INJURY. Mr. A. B. Partridge, president of the National Association of Slate Merchants, in a letter to the Times, discusses some points raised in the recent speech of Mr. W. Jones, M.P., on the Penrhyn Quarry dispute. Mr. Partridge declares that the slate trade of North Wales has been permanently injured by the dispute, and adds:—Great Britain and Ireland, Germany and Australia have learnt to do with a greatly reduced quantity of Welsh slates, and this reduction has been more than met by the vast imports of American and other foreign slates. The contracts made and the per- manent arrangements entered into will lead to a restricted output in Wales, and it will probably not be long after the resumption of work that the men will find themselves com- pelled to exchange full time for three or four days a week as a result of following the lead of mistaken guides. I think it will be admitted that Lord Penrhyn has gone as far as any of the quarrymen's advocates would go if they were placed in his position. He has reserved to himself the inherent right to retain the management of the quarries, which the men profess they do not wish to usurp. Unfor- tunately the men accepted unwholesome advice and rejected these terms in May last. But how were they refused ? Not by a secret ballot of the entire number, but in open meeting, where a small portion only of the men were gathered, and that portion largely composed of irrecon- cilables. These points are net generally known to the public, and many similar facts have not received the publicity they deserved.
