This company has been formed for 'the purpose of acquiring from the New Portable Electric Lamp and Powar Syndicate Company, Limited, tbeir patents and system for the manufacture of (1) an Electric Miners' Lamp, (2) a Lamp for the Electric Lighting of Railway Carriages, (3) a Lamp for Domestic Purposes, and for use in factories and places where a portable and absolutely safe light is required. At the present timo probably no subject has received greater attention frora those engaged in the practical working of mines, factories, and railways, than the production of a lamp, which, for the purposes of those and similar enterpri>!es, shall combine the elements of perfect safety, awl improved illuminating power, with cheapness of manufacture and maintenance, and it has loug Iteen felt that these requirements would have to k furnished through th medium of an electric light, From the exhaustive ex nments both in laboratories and in th coal pits, extending oVr a period of two years, wliich the Vendor Company have carried out, it IS beiievrd that a solution ot the problem is now pre. sented i* the lamp, which will be acquired by this Cmpany. MINERS' LAMPS. For the purposes of a Miners' Lamp the following requirements would a ppear to be essential(1) The lamp sbould be absolutely safe under all circumstances; (2) it<< continuous illuminating power ghould be greater I than that of th oil 1 Pimps now 10 use, and should be maintained for from 10 to 12 honr; (3) its weight must aot exceed b lbs. (4) its cost must not be prohibitive, and (5) the of maintenance must compare favourably with the lamps now in use. It has been the object of the Vendors to produce a Miners' Lmr. which should fultilall these conditions, and the directors are confident that in the present laran they fulfilled. After I), series oi experiments, extending over a period ,f two years, under the superintendence of Messrs J. and P. Higson, the well-known mining engineers, of Manchester, the Directors are enabled to announce tbat the Miners' Limp (1) is absolutely Wife; (2) with a reflector it gives a lisrht much superior "0 the oil lamps generally in use, and can be maintained from 10 to 12 hours '3) its weight is a little over bibs (4) it can be sold for 20s and (5) the expense of main- tenance will not exceed 3d per week. The tests referred to were conducted by the fonowiD Companies and tirmg carrying 011 the business of colliery proprietors and managers, who received sample lamps from the vendors and placed them in the hands of the pitmen and ..uperintendents for lle :— The Wear DALE IRON and COAL COMPANY, LIMITED, I Sptl!1nymoor. The WIGAN COAL and IRON COMPANY, LIMITED, Wigan, The Pkarson and KNOWLKS COAL and I&ON COMPANY, LIMITED, Wigan. Messrs JOHN BROWN and Co., LIMITED, Rotherham. Messrs J. & P. HIUSON, 18, r.ooth-street, Manchester. SHIRE OAKS COLLIERY, near Worksop. And it is satisfactory to know that without exception the verdict of these representative persons is entirely in favour of this lamp as compared with any other electric lamp which has come under their notice. Amongst others, the following testimonials have been received JOHN BIlOWN AND CO., LIMITED (Atlas Steel and Ironworks. Sheffield,), '• Aldwarke Main and Car Houge Collieries, Rotherham. Miners' Electric Lamp. Dear Sir,—in reply to yours asking my opinion of the above for use as a Miners' I-amp, I have to state that. having had numerous opportunities of testing it —not only in an Explosive Current of Gas and Air— but lD actua, work underground, I am of opinion that It i. perfectly safe under all conditions (including ractore of the glasses) in an explosive atmosphere ,hat it gives an ample and sufficient light for mining Operations that it is very portable, and stands the Knocking about that is incidental to mining operations well, and is the best,so far as my knowledge goes, yet introduced as an Electric Miners' Safety Lamp. Faithfully yours, C. E. RHODES." THE PEARSON AND KNOWLES COAL AND IRON COMPANY, LIMITED. Portable. Hiectric Lamp This is to ce; tify thut the Llectric Lamp, which we have held here lor trial, is, in our opinion, suitable in .,ery respect for mining purposes we have given the lamp a fair test, and it burns over 12 hours.—Yours irnly (for the Company), ISRAEL KNOWLES." Crown Buildings, Booth-street, Manchester. I baTe now for some time past had a Tery intimate experience of your Portable Electric Lamp' for mining purposes, and h'ne to report that, in my I opinion, it is the best Electric Miners' Lamp that I have seen, all I believe it affords perfect safety to the miner under all conditions when exposd to the action 9f explosive atml>sphere. Tbe automatic arrangement, which comes into play in the event of the glass protecting the light being brot. at once cuts off the electric current, and se prevents any possible chance of the light igniting the surrounding atmosphere. Experiments have deter- mined this all-important point most satisfactorily. The Lamp is very light, portable, and well adapted to the miners' requirements. The light, as concentrated by the shield, possesses between a half and one candle power. "Yours faithfully, JoHM filOSON, Mem, Jrutt. Civ. Engr. The cost of the Lamp is no doubt more than the cost of the best made oil lamps, but the cost of maintenance Is much leas than 3d per lamp per week, for « The renewal of working parts is less fr The cost of cleaning is less < The charge of charging is incomparably less, be. cause there is practically 110 cost for material, much less laDour is necessary, and at a colliery the cost of the power required for charging is inappreciable. There is an imperative demand for such a lamp, and the aeenU of the Company can secure orders for large aumbers of the Lamp at a price which yields, after saying all expenses, a proiit of as per Lamp. Large orders for lamps await completion and these as they stand will be transferred by the Vendors of the Com- .y.. la addition to colliery requirements, the lamp as a safety lamp will bo found iuvaiuable in all factories whore the nature of the industry creates an inflamma- ble atmosphere, sucu as cotton mills, corn mills, JIOwr factories, and the like. And as a portable lam? tur domestic use, the Directors aeiieve that for price and efficiency it is without a rival. Ag«wu> its application to railway lighting, as herein- iftei- explained, shoud prove a most extensive source of 3iupioymeai for tae .-ysteni. in addition the protit on Teuewal work must oe cousidered this is a lare source of protit to existing lamp manufacturers, and (here can be no doubt that the profit 011 necessary re- pairs and renewal char&ea would amount to a cou- jiderable sum. Again, as the comply acquire ail the foreign patents of the vendors for the invention,a considerable from licenses to use these on royalty, or by sale them outright, should be made. In naming JQba as the price of the miners lamp, ail g for manufacture have been taken into account. It is not. however, at- present intended to erect costly 'actories for this purpose, but to enter into contracts with existing safety lamp manufacturers to supply ihe orders the company receives. Negotiations with view and of a favourable nature have alreauy been vueredupou. RAILWAY LAMPS; Besides their application to the fcwteries and lamps of the company will be suitable for lighting railway trains, whether block trains or single coaches, and whetner running at speed or at rerhe mileage per annum on the principal railways in this Kingdom ot the passenger trains is computed to be from 22 to 40 millions of miles, and. the cost 01 oil, where oil lamps are used, with such a mileage, very great, 'liie breakages are very heavy, anu1 tne ceMot labour in tiding, cleaning, aad hxing lhe lamps and removing them is also considerable. The cost 01 ligutmg by g;ts is beyond all douDt iar cheaper than oil, but the cost of lighting a train by alectncity on the present system would compare most favonrably with either gas or oil. There can be no doubt that the light Riven on the trains which already been lit by electricity is far superior to that ot any gas or oil system, and it is equally certain that the eiectric lighting ot trains would ere this have become far mure general but ior the fact that it has been impossible to light any trains except those known ac omnibus trains, or those which are never broken up. By the present system it is believed ail the previous difficulty of lighting through traffic has beeu met. The ditliculty has been to discover a plan, under which each ¡ coach should possess an arrangement enabling the lamp to remain burning in each coach, whether tne coach bit nart of or deiached from tne train, and whether sta- tionary or in motion. Here a battery is used In each carriage, and whether a ca riage be detached from a train or not. it makes no diffeience to the light, as tlfh coach possesses in itself the machinery necessary to Maintain the light. The Company propose to offer parties 111 tending to UM the lamps and batteries the cnoice of one of two courses they will be able to purchase them outright and provide their own re-charging piant, or r,his Com- pany will supply and maintain the lamps required, at a fixed charge per annum. Estimating the income to be derived from ad sources, the Directors believe the volume of business that may be anticipated will, be large and very remunerative. basing a calculation on an estimated annual sale ot oiny b0,o„0 Lamps amongst ail the collieries factories and Railway Companies of the Umfcea Kingdom (and including, •nor -uvei ,11 this estimate the torej-n user ot toe Patents as wei ). a protit of 10 per cent, per annum on the capital of tne Company Would be forthcoming. In order to test their vahdi.y as fin- as possible, the Patents CO be acquired have been ^.oroughiy examined by Messrs Jobiioon and Co.. tbe well-known P^eiit Agents, and submitted to counsel, Mi* **loulton, with a result which is entirely satisfactory.

The cash payment ia made to repay tha amount the V endors Lve spent and the liabilities rliey have nxurrsd in l purchasing patents and perfecting the system during the past two years. In additiou, for this sura, all expenses of the present Company up to allotmenr. will be (.ei rayed.

Higson, 18, B joth-tieet, Manchester and a Model of a Railway Carriage lit by this system can be seen ai tne Office of the Company. The only contract entered into by ihe Company is one dated ,,4th November, 1888, and made between the Company of the one part and ihe Vendor Syndicate Company of the ottier pari. Ibis contract, with a copy of the memorandum and articles 01 'ssociation, can be seen at the ofli es of the Company. Arrangements for guaranteeing a subscription to the capital have been made by the Vendors, and under the above contract the Company will take over the business of the Syndicate Company, and with it certain contracts for leasing premises, purcnase of material, nire of workmen, these arrangements may technically constitute contracts within Section 38 of the Companies Act. 1867.

Custom or Central Mills and Reduction W rka in. Witwatersrandt to meet an urgent want in that dis- trict of the South African Goldnelds, and h,»s, among others, the following subsidiary objects :— 1.—To establish Custom Mills and Reduction Works in other districts of these fields where desirable. 2.—To crush ores and treat concentrates for all comers. acquire auriferous properties, with a now of developing and working the same, or selling them to gub-companie3, or other parties. 4.-To prospect lands for gold, silver. Ac., on terms carrying the nght of negotiating such properties, and to form or take part in Syndicates for these purposes. 5.—To buy up concentrated taiBngs from the various Mining Companies, with a view of extracting the Gold by chlorination. 6.—To establish, in connection with the Works, & complete Laboratory, and .0 act as Assayers and Analysts. 7-—To act as Agents for the examination, sale, and purchase of Mining properties in South Africa. The establishment of Central Mills is Witwaters- randt has become a pressing necessity in order to acoommodae the many Mining Companies wch are unable to mill their own ore for want of capital, and the vast number of private Claim Holders and Syndi- cates who at present find it impossible to procure test crushings of their Ore. Some of them have been able occasionally to obtain trial crushings at mills belonging to other Companies, and the high prices paid for this service show a very large margin of protit. Owing to the presence of Pyrites and other dele- terious substances which make amalgamation in the Mill impracticable, the tailings from the Mill in. variably contain a large proportion of the aesay value of the ore—sometimes larger than is actually yielded in the MilL There are no reduction Works on the Witwatersrandt at these tailings can be treated. With proper appliances these tailings could be concen- trated from 50 to 100 tons into one. Following what has become a flourishing and profitable industry m America, this Company proposes to buy up these con- centrates, or to treat them in this works at a fixed chaige per ton. This should be a source of great profit to this Company, and means increased dividends wall the Minin" CompMlies whIch cOQICentrate tbelr disconnection with the Milling and Reduction Works a laboratory will be at once established, and the com- pany will be in the best position to conduct assays and analyses of ores cheaply, which in if will yield a good revenue. „ The official returns lor October from/ the district of Witwatersrandt show a gold production of 27,773 ounces. The average loss in nulling naay be safely put at 25 per cent., which shows how much the actual richness of these fields is under-estimated by the returns, owing t defective milling. It is proposed to erect 100 Stamps on suitable and central 8ires. with amalgamating and concentrating I appliances of the most approved typo. It is estimated that these 100 stamps will crush, at least, one and a-haif ton per day per stamp head, or 150 tons per day- The following figures snow the amount of busi- ness wllich may be ÙOIlt: on this basis, 26s pr ton being taken as the charge for milling, although 30s can be obtained, and much higher price's have been frequently charged 150 tons per 24 hours at £1 5s per ton £187 10 0 Cost of milling at 13s per ton 97 lo 0 Profit per diem £ QQ Q Q equal to per annum of 300 working days, or 27 per cent. per annum upon the capital of the Company A small preliminary plant capable of treating only 25 tons per week, either by the American amalgama- tion grinding process or by Chlorination of concen- trates, will cost about £1,000. The cost of treating 25 tons per week will not exceed E2 per ton, or £ 50 per week. Assuming that the tailings contain only 5 dwts. per ton (and it is well known that for the most part they contain more), a concentration of 50 tons into one would mean a value of 12i oz. per ton of concentrates. To the Mining Companies m Witwatersrandt this would mean an increase in their revenues of £:0,000 per annum on a supply of only 25 COD" of concentrates per week. A charge of £5 per ton for treatment would be moderate, and would yield a protit of £75 per week, or :£3,750 per annum. The total profit fnoio Milling and Reduction Works may be estimated at about £ 33,000 per aunum, equal to 33 per cent. 011 the capital ui "he Company. The Directors do not make any estimates of the probable returns from the prospecting and exploitation of properties, but it is well known that large profits are made in thÜt kind of business. <> The only contract entered into is one dated the 21st November, 18S8, between Alfred Archibald Gould of the one part, and the Company of the otb2r part, a copy of which can bu seen at the offices of the Company's Solicitors. It is intended to apply for a settlement and quotation on the Stock Exchange. If tbe namber of shares applied tar exceeds the amount of the issue, the allotment will be made strictly pro rata. and the 8Urplu1\ money paid on application will be credited towards the amount due on allotment, Prospectuses and forms of application for shares may be had at the Company's banners, brokers, solicitors, and at the offices of the company. 23rd November, 1888.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,— I ber; to offer myself as candidate to repre. sent you on the County Council of Glamorganshire. The transfer of power to the County Council, a body popularly elected, will doubtless add fresh strength and life to the principle of self-government, which has educated the inhabitants of the British Isles to the practice of ordered freedom, and the wise exercise of political power. In order that the new Act may be turned to the best account, it will be advisable to introduce some fresh blood, but at the same time it is most important to retain a sufficient number of those who have been conversant with the affairs of the County. I have had twelve years' experience of the manage- ment of County business, and have served on some of the most hnportaut committees.
