MINERS' MEETING AT ABERDARE. DESIRABILITY OF FEDERATION. A meeting of miners was held at Saron-hall, Aberaman, Aberdarc, on Monday night. Mr D. Morgan (agent) presided, and there were present Messrs W. Abraham, M.P., Isaac Evans (Neath), Henry Davies, John Lewis, and a large number of miners. The CHAIRMAN explained that tho meeting bad been called for the purpose of iiearing addresses from Mabon and Mr Evans, and to place before tho m etiug the necessity of federation and organization. Mr ISAAC EVANS regretted that the miners wero not organised to the extent they ought to be. It was true that they had their association-like the employers and the officials-but theirs (the wns not sufficiently united and gaining in strength. He believed that their position would improve by combination. It would improve financially, socially, and politically. The speaker criticised the third clause in the Employers' Liability Act, and expressed the opiniou that Mr Bradiaugh, and not the Govern- ment, was responsible for it. Had they been properly amalgamated, a sufficient number of h'b 'ur representatives might have been sent to Parliament to assist Mabon and others in op- posing the clause. He (the speaker) did not believe that the employers were antagonistic to combination on the part of the n:eo as long as they did not overstep their rights, I'ud agitated in a fair way fnr improvement. The following resolution WaM then pruposed and c:.rried:- That this meeting approves of the action taken by the labour representatives in the House of Commons in protesting against the third cluusS of the Employers' Liability Bill, as we believe t.hat clause to be detri- mental to the independence of the workmen. There- fore we are jflful to find that the miners of South Wales and Monmoutlisi'ire are detetmined to hold a series of meetings for the purpose of organising the minet" in order to prot,ect the iiuere>t of labour in the district and to promote their political rights as well. Mr W. ABKAHAH, M.P., who was enthu- siastically received, said ha believed that trade unity was a valuable force in securing for the workmen better hours Itnd better pay. The industries which workmen had built. up showed a higher rate of wages and less fluctuation in employment. He dwelt at considerable length upon the necessity of joining the federation, for without doing so they would certainly fall, and be under the feet of the masters. At the close of his address the following resolution was proposed and carried — That this meeting, after hearing the vigorous and efficient speeches delivered here to-night, is of opinion that every colJiery in this valley should sup- port the federation, and pledges itself to do its utmost to reach tint etid. Mr HENRY IUVIKS proposed a vote of thanks to the f.peakcr.% and spoke very highly of Mabon's and Mr Evans' efforts on behalf ot the workmen and Mr JOHN KKKS seconded.
