-.or BUCKLEY. TREAT TO WORKMEN OF MESSRS. G. WATKINSON & SONS, LIMITED. — Mr. John Watkinson, J.P., principal partner in this firm, gave a knife and fork tea to the whole of his workmen (about 600) in St. Matthew's Schools, in celebration of his daughter's wedding with Mr. Kershaw. Mr. Watkinson presided, and he was supported by Master Fred Watkinson, the Rev. Harry Drew, and the officials of the collieries. After an excellent tea, Mr. Peter Hall pro- posed a hearty vote of thanks be given to Mr. Watkinson for his kindness. which was seconded by Mr. Isaac Edwards, and carried with enthusiasm. In reply, Mr. Watkinson remarked that it was about 22 years since he had the pleasure of meeting his workmen under similar pleasing circumstances on the occasion of his own marriage, when he gave a dinner at the Black Horse, and he con- sidered that on the whole the interval had been a very smooth course between them.—In the evening a free-and-easy entertainment was held, under the presidency of Mr. William Hopwood (head manager), and among those who contributed to the harmony were Messrs. J. Davies, J. D. Morris, Charles Iball, Thomas Stanley, Wm. Edwards (under manager), Wm. Hopwood (manager), Joseph Taylor, Ernest Davies, and Messrs. Fisher (Wrexham).
