ASSOCIATION OF COLLIERY OFFICIALS. MEETING AT ABERDARE. At the invitation of Mr J. L. Thomas, Bryn- awel, abous 130 managers, overmen, firemen, and other officials, chiefly from the Aberdare Valley, met at the Queen's Hotel, Aberdare, on Saturday evening for the purpose of appointing a chairman and the other officers of the association also to consider the time and place of meeting, and the amount of yearly subscription.—Mr J. L. Thomas, who presided pro tern., stated that at the preliminary meeting, held a fortnight ago, it was resolved that the association should be formed and that the Merthyr officials should be asked to co-operate.—Mr D. E. Davies (Dewi Mabon) said that he would give the association every support in his power. He thought that the overmen and. firoman would derive great benefit from joiuinc it, more so, perhaps, than by becom- ing members of the South Wales Association of Mining Engineers, where theoretical papers were mostly read by gentlemen of great ability, but lacking the practical experience in mining matters which was possessed by many present that evening. Mr John Jones (Cyfarthfa) spoke in favourable terms of the association, and regretted the absence of the Merthyr men from the meeting.—"Messrs D. E. Davies, Hughes (Abernant),land Llewelyn (Bwllfa) having spoken, it was resolved that the Mertbyr officials should again be asked to attend the next meeting.—The appointment of chairman and other officers was then proceeded with. The meeting unanimously elected Mr J. L. Thomas to be chairman, but feeling that he could be more useful in another capacity be declined, Mr D. E. Davies was then appointed chairman. Messrs Llewelyn (Bwllfa) and Howel Davies (Gadlys) were elected vice- chairmen, Mr J, L. 'Thomas was appointed secretary, and Mr W. Hughes (Abernant) treasurer. After considerable discussion the subscriptions were fixed. as followsFiremen, surveyors, book-clerks, and working mechanics, 5s per annum, payable half-yearly overmen, 7 6d per annum and managers, 10s 6d per annum. With reference to the workmen who have gained the certificate of service under the new Act, as to whether they were eligible for membership, the matter was left in the bands of the committee.
