RHONDDA VALLEYS MINERS' ASSOCIATION. MEETING OF DELEGATES AT TON. THE RUPTURE WITH THE GREAT WESTERN COLLIERS. Tbe monthly delegate meeting of tbe Rbondda Valleys District Steam Coal Miners' Association was held at the Windsor Hotel, Ton, on Monday, it having been decided that these meetings be held in future on the last instead of the first Monday in each month, so as not to clash with the monthly holidays. With reference to the dispute at the National Colliery, Wattstown, as to the refusal of colliers te do hauliers' work for four shillings per day, the agent (Mr W. Abraham, M.P.) was requested to see the manager with the view of arriving at an amicable settlement. A resolution was passed to the effect that in future every colliery shall send a notice to the district meeting of any important matter they wish to have discussed thereat, but that this should not interfere with the consideration of any lccal dispute. The announcement of the agent that tbe "sponging" system at the Blaenrbondda Colliery was at an end was received with ap- plause.—The following resolutions were also agreed to :— That the question of retaining the extra turn to the night men at Llwynpia Colliery be deputed to the district agent and the workmen's committee, who are to use their bes', endeavours to get the matter amicably settled, and should they fail to retain that turn, that we give the deputation aurhority to finally deal with the matter, an,1 that the district will support the men in their struggle if necessary. That the Dare dispute be left in abeyance for another month That this meeting shall not consider anything that will crop up in regard to the Albion Arbitration dispute, as we think it is time this matter should be finished with. It was reported that the workmen of the Albion Colliary bad determined upon a list of prices, and that that list would be at once submitted to the colliery manager. The workmen were advised by the meeting to adhere to the list, and settle the prices with the master themselves, as far as possible and if they could not agree, that they be at liberty to call in the aid ofMcW. Abraham, M P., and that their cfise be again considered at the next meeting.—A letter was read from the secretary of the Great Western Colliery Commit- tee, stating that at a meeting of the workmen held on the 22nd inst. their position with regard to the district, was discussed, and the following resolution passed :—"That we withdraw from the Rbondda district entirely, and have nothin more to do with it." The c-tuse of the rupture did not transpire, and a committee was appointed to visit the colliery with a view of inquiring into the dispute which at present exists thereat,
