THE COLLIERS' WAGES QUESTION. ADJOURNED CONFERENCE AT ABERDARE. THE WORKMEN TO BE CONSULTED. The adjourned general meeting of house and steam coal workmen's delegates of Monmouth- shire and South Wales was held on Tuesday at the Bute Arms, Aberdare, Mr J. Williams, C'tydach, in the chair, and Mr David Lewis, Brynmawr, in the vice-chair. Mr Lewis Miles and Mr J. Lewis, Aberaman, again acted as secretaries to the conference. QUESTIONS BEFORE THE MEETING. The points to consider which the meeting had been called by the sliding-scale committee (work- men's representatives) were as follows:—(1) To receive the report of the deputation that has waited upon the employers on the question of advance in wages. (2) To receive the accountants' report for the four months ending December 31st, 1888. (3) To consider the question of weekly payments in our collieries. (4) To further consider the question of the eight hours' move- ment. (5) To consider seriously our financial position with reference to the sliding-scale fund for house and steam coal. CHAIRMAN'S OPENING SPEECH. The CHAIRMAN said they bad got very important subjects before them that day, and of great interest to them. In the first place, they had to consider the questions arising from the report of the deputation to the employers in regard to the proposed increase of wages, and th e report of the accountants. Those questions must be thoroughly discussed in the meeting that morning, and they must come to some conclusion as to what they would do in the future. In addition, they had to deal with a subject which was of great interest to them, viz., tue weekly payment of wages. He believed that that weekly payment of wages would be a 10 per cent. advance ta the poor collier. Having referred to the eight hours' movement, he said then there was also the question of the financial affairs of the sliding- scale. Whether the sliding-scale had been good or bad to them as workmen ill the past, they must pay their debts-(bear, hear)—and they would not act as honourable men without paying their dues. He was sure everyone present would carry back this to his fellow-workmen, and do all he could to show the advisability of their paying their share of what was due from them. TELLERS. Mr P. Rees and Mr Thomas Williams, Cwm. bach, were appointed tellers. VISITORS. By a majority of one the meeting was declared open to vialtort3 as on the previous day. THE PRESS REPRESENTATIVES. A Delegate propped, a. vote of thanks to the South Wales Daily News for the way in which the meeting had been reported that day. Another delegate suggested that thanks should be accorded to all the representatives of the press, and this was agreed to. THE WAGES QUESTION. A Monmoutbshire Delegate complained that although the average prices were so low-accord. ing to the auditor's report-he could nowhere find house coal being sold in the district at less than B per ton. Mr PHILIP REKS (Aberaman) observed that they were quite satisfied with the manner ia which Mr Parsons had audited the books, but they did not, in passing a resolution on the previous day to that effect, mean that the scale itself did not require to be revised. He believed the present sliding-scale was not what it ought to have been. If they took into considera- tion the wages of Welsh, English, and Scotch miners, they would find a vast differeuce.. They had been complimented that the people of Wales wero a quiet people, religious, and took all that they were offered. He believed the day bad come when they were going in for the higher wages which they ought to get. Taking the wages, for instance, of the North, the sliding-scale men, they would find that the members, or the men governed by the scale, were earning something like 10 per cent. under those who were fighting without a sliding-scale. He quite agreed that all workmen should have some scale to govern them, but it should be one that would work both ways, and give the same fair play to the men as to the employers. It had been proved their scale did not. He was not a striker. He had suffered from his father being a striker. But if they could not get their wages by fair means, it was time for them to go in for other means. (Hear, hear.) He referred to authoritative pronouncements on the superior excellence of Welsh coal, and inoved :— That if the employers will not advance us 10 per cent. in our wages, we will join our friends in the Ocean Collieries to give a month's notice on the 1st of March, and demand our rights. He claimed, in regard to the scale and the agree- ment which was iu operation, that they were equally as entitled to the Hper cent, advances 6 when the average prices were 83 2d as when they g wero Di 21 or 9* &i. 3 A Delegate rose to order. He bogged to propose t that they should receive the report of the I accountants. Auother Delegate said they ought to act in conjunction with the Ocean Collieries and demand 12 per cent, advance. 12 per cent. advance. A third Delegate asked whether it was to be understood that that meeting passed by the offer of the employers to give 5 per cent. They ought to settle that question. Mr ISAAC EVANS said tho question they really had to discuss was the receivingof the accountants' report. The result of the audit they wanted to consider, and not the auditor. The result of that audit was that there was no advance. The advance that had been proposed to them was an advance conditionally, and what they would want to consider was whether they would accept the conditions or not, He reviewed the conditions, and on the point of having a fourth audit in the year he explained a further expense of £ 63 would be incurred. A variety of propositions and counter- propositions were put before the meeting, and it was eventually agreed unanimously to accept the report of the last audit, but to express great dissatisfaction at the result. The CHAIRMAN: The next thing is, what about the offer of 5 per cent, ou condition that we give up the monthly holiday! Mr PHILIP KXES I propose that we treat the employers' proposition with contempt. This was at once seconded, Mr Rees adding that "the matter should go back to the collieries." Mr W. ABRAHAM, M.P., asked, if they were going to treat the employers with contempt, what after? A Dogate: Strike. Mr W, ABRAHAM suggested that it was, perhaps, premature to express "contempt," although they might all be disappointed. He thought the workmen should have an opportunity of expressing themselves upon the question. Mr P. REltS, with due regard to Mr Abraham as a wise man, and one who looked before he leapt, thought the Welsh miners had been treated with more contempt than the masters were being treated in this. He considered that no people had been treated with greater contempt than the people in that part of the country. Look at the prices of coal He coutended that upon those prices they wars entitled to an advance of 30 per cent. rather than of 7. Rather than bo trodden under foot they should treat the offer with contempt by all means. Mr W. ABRAHAM, M.P., said he was not going to enter into a dificuscion with Mr Rees. But he proceeded to point out that Mr Rees evidently based his remarks upon a fallacy. As be thought it was distinctly elicited on the day previous, current prices, as reported in the newspapers, were not average prices at which tho whole of the coal of various sorts was sold. He repeated the result of an investigation lie had made at six Cardiff offices, the effect of which went to show that the average prices upon contract (two- thirds) and current sales (one-third) were much lower than might be supposed from a perusal of reported prices in the market current. Mr DAVID MORGAN (Aberdare) spoke at length with regard to the contracts. He did not believe all that he had beard about the extended con- tracts. If all the longest contracts were made at poor prices, it showed the coalowners an sailers were not such sharp men as a body as the buyers. He also protested against the use of the word 41 contempt as sought to be applied by Mr Rees, and did not think the employers' offer should necessarily be disposed of straightway in such a manner. It was proposed as an amendment—" That the delegates present should return to their different collieries and slate the offers of the employers to the workmen, and obtain their opinion thereon." A delegate suggested the withdrawal by Mr Rees of the word contempt." Mr REES concurred, and said he was willing for it to bA expressed as a matter of disappointment. Mr ABRAHAM, M.P., then submitted the fol- lowing resolution to meet the difficulty, and it was unanimously agreed to :_u That this meeting regreta it cannot see its way clear to accept the employers' conditional offer, but that the proposition shall be sent to our fellow work. men at the various collieries, whose final opinions will ba received at a future day," With regard to this part of the business, it was, nfter some discussion, agreed to adjourn until Saturday, and then to consider the replies from the different collieries. The conference then adjourned for dinner. WEEKLY PAYMENT OF WAGES. Upon resuming, after lengthy discussion, Mr ISAAC EVANS (Neath) proposed That in the opinionof this meeting the time has arrived when the wages of the minors of South Wales and Mon- mouthshire should be paid weekly in full and clear account, and in current coin of the realm, and that the workmen of every district and colliery do all in their power to bring this about at once. MrEvans thought it would be most advantageous to the men and their families wero they paid weekly. (Cheers.) It would do away to a great ex- tent with the pernicious system of old account." The reason why he mentioned current coin of the realm in his proposition was that even at present the truck system was in vogue. (Cries of "Shame.") He thought it was monstrous that the accounts should go on from eight to ten weeks, and sometimes more, without any reckoning. The masters argued that with weekly payments an additional clerical staff would be required, whereas wages already are paid weekly in toins cases, and if managers can make up a month's account, and often more, in three or four days, surely they could prepare a week's account in less time, and at less expense. The motion bavipg been seconded, and BUns, M.P., and others having spoken, when pqt to the meeting it was carried unanimously. EIGHT HOURS MOVEMENT. MABON, M.P., reported that nothing had been done in this direction, and suggested that the matter should be left in abeyance until the wages question had been settled. It was well known, or ought to' be, that when the agitation for a redaction of hours in 1882 was brought before the sliding-scale committee, every contract was their based upon the nine hours system. It was decided to postpone the further' consideration of the subject. FINANCIAL POSITION OF THK SLIDING-SCALE. MABON, M.P., promised that a full financial statement would be prepared by Saturday next, when this subject would be fully discussed. The meeting then adjourned until next Saturday, at 10.30 a.m., at the same place, when all delegates will be expected to be present.

CARDIFF v. LLANELLY. The honorary secretary of the Cardiff Club (Mr W. H. Treatt) has bean informed that Llanelly are full up to the end of the season, and consequently cannot offer Cardiff a date for their postponed match till well on in April. It is not improbable, however, that the teams will meet on March 23rd, supposing. that is, the Cardiff Harlequins cau be induced to give up their return with Llanelly at the Stradey Field oa that day. CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY V. MAORIS.-Playe(I on Leys School Ground, Cambridge, before several thousand spectators. After ten minutes' play Todd secured a try.

NORTHUMBERLAND COAL TRADE. A STRIKE AVOIDED. ADVANCE SECURED BY THE MEN. The Northumberland miners, by & large majority, have accepted an advance offered by the employers, so that no strike will take place.
DESPERATE PRIZE FIGHT. A DISGUSTING SPECTACLE. Two Danaby Main colliers on Monday had a desperate encounter with each other on the Pastures," not far from the colliery premises. They bad hoped to keep the proceedings a secret, but early in the morning the news was circulated, and when tbe combat occurred in a field off the Melton road several huadred spectators had gathered. It was only at a late hour the previous night that the men decided to resort to a pugilistic contest. Half a sovereign was the sum to be awarded to the "champion." The ferocity of the affair may be surmised when it is stated that there were no fewer than 25 rounds. Both men were pretty much of the same build, and when they stripped to the waist in the customary professional fashion it was difficult to decide which wouid come off victorious. At the outset both men received some smart taps on the face and ribs, and it was not long before one of the belligerents drew blood, After a while one of the pugilists lost his self control somewhat, and struck out angrily, and without the necessary professional skill. The opponent, who stood on the defensive, took the opportunity to send home some tremendous blows at this juncture, and the face of his adversary soon became much disfigured. Both men repeatedly feii, and there was a good deal of what is known in sporting circles as 44 running round the ring." When the 20tb round was completed both men were very much exhausted, and showed signs of severe punishment, but it was evident that one had more determination and physical power than the other, and after five more rounds, the one who got worsted was too weak to continue the contest. He presented a most abject appearance; his eyes were both "closed," and his face was shockingly cut and swollen—quite past recognition. Great indignation was expressed amongst the more respectable inhabitants at the disgusting proceedings, and it is expected that legal action will follow.
GLOVE FIGHT IN LONDON. EXTRAORDINARY AND DISGRACE- FUL SCENE. One of the most important glova fights that has been witnessed in the metropolitan district for a considerable time was fought at Lambeth School of Arms on Tuesday evening. The combatants were Ted Pritchard and Jem Hayes. The stake was £100 a-side, and the figilt was to be to the finish, with small gloves. Pritchard is 5 feet 8 inches in height, Hayes 5 feet 7 inches, and both men scaled 10 stone 4 lbs. Pritchard forced the fighting, and Hayes DA' nothing loth, there was pleuty of hard hitting. Prichard punished Hayes very severely, and ten seconds before time seut him down with a right- hander on the chin, which, judging by after apptarance, must have dislucated or broken the jaw. When time for the round to terminate W;(3 called, Hayes was still prostrate in the 12-feet ring. His seconds got him up, but he had no chance of continuing the combat. This fact became apparent to a number of ruffians, who, to save their man's defeat, broke into the ring and started a series of froe fights, which necessitated the interference of the police. Hayes's party were unable to send their man up ^again, but pressed Mr Angle, the referee, to declare a draw, This he declined to do, but gave the men notice he would require them to meet again at his discretion.

ANTICIPATIONS. The racing at Sandown Park to-day, if not so good as might have been anticipated, was still very interesting. Dull though not unpleasant I weather favoured the meeting, and there was a fairly good ccmpany present. The sport will be found fully set out elsewhere, and there is no need to comment upon it here. With respect to the Waterloo Cup, for which the draw took place this afternoon, the wagering at Sandown showed Mr Hale's nomination in better demand than ever, while Col. North's, Mr Pilkingtou's, Mr Sidney's, Mr Hornby's, and Mr Tyier's nominations were all supported. THe draw is a pretty even one, the most fancied dogs being a little closer together at the bottom than at the top. Colonel North's half-dozen representatives cannot in any case meet each other until Thursday morning, so that he should have a good chance of receiving the prize. Townend must meet in the second round Fulierton if they win their first ties, and Happy Rendelie is not well placed. At Sandown Park to-morrow I shall vote as under:— Selling Handicap Hurdle Race—HOLLYOAX. Selling Hunters' Steeplechase—EAUL ROSAS. Sandown Grand Prize—Mr Cannon's best or TONANS.

EAST PERTHSHIRE ELECTION POLLING YESTERDAY. ARREST OF AN IRISH MEMBER. MAGNIFICENT LIBERAL VICTORY. The polling for East Perthshire to fill the seat lately held by Mr R. S. Menzies, deceased, took place on Tuesday, the candidates being Sir John Kiuiocii (G,adstonitti Liberal) and Mr W. A. Boase (Conservative). The number of electors on the register is 7,790, and at the last election Mr Menzies obtained a majority of 1,309 over Mr Holland, Liberal Unionist. There was an absence of excitement in Perth, although a heavy poll is expected. It transpired during the day that Mr J. L. Carew, member for Kildar?, who for the past week has been assisting the Liberal candidate by addressings meetings, had been arrested in the morning at Kinloch House. It seoms that on Monday night Mr Carew, who spoke at Blairgowrie in support of Sir John Kinloch, went to liinloch House to stay the night. About seven o'clock on Tuesday morning the chief. constable of Perthshire, accompanied by detective officer*, called and asked to see Sir John Kinloch. Sir John aroused Mr Carew before he saw the officers. Mr Carew expressed his willingness to accompany the officers. It was then arranged that the police should see Mr Carew at breakfast, and afterwards he was taken prisoner. Sir John Kinloch placed a carriage at his disposal, and accompanied by Mr Sinclair, the member for Ayr Burghs, the party drove to Meigle Junction to catch the mail tor the south. On the way the party called at Belmont Castle, and saw Mr Campbell Bannerinan, M.P., who expressed surprise at the time and circumstances of the arrest. Sir John Kinloch telegraphed the fact of the arrest to all the polling centre?, and the in. telligence produced considerable excitement among the voters throughout the entire division. Mr Carew arrived on Tuesday afternoon by train at Glasgow. There were about half-a-dozau extra police present at the station, but very few civilians, the news of Mr Carew's arrest not having become known. The prisoner, with Mr Sinclair, M.P., Chief Constable Macpherson, of Perthshire, and Sergeant Robb, of the Irish Constabulary, travelled in a first-class compart- ment. On aliffhting, Mr Carew, who was peifectly unmoved, and Mr Sinclair shook hands heartily with Chief Constable Macpherson, and entered a cab with Inspector Carniichael, of Glasgow, and Seigeant Robb. The hon member was conveyed to Dublin by steamer. The result of the election was made known at Perth on Tuesday night at 11.30 o'clock. The 3Rures were:- Sir J. Kinloch (L) 4,005 Mr Boase (U) 2,289 Liberal majority 1,716 It will be seen that the Liberal majority has been substantially increased since thelastelection. The arrest of Mr Carew caused a good deal of stir throughout the division, and it is expected that it will favourably influence the prospects of of Sir John Kinloch. At the last election the Voting was as follows Mr R. S. Menzies (L) 3,504 Mr J. R. Holland (U L) 2,195 Liberal majority 1,309 I Population, 46,933. Electorate 1884, 2,550 1885, 7.851. 1885 poil Menzies (L), 4,222 Murray (0), 2,421 Liberal majority, 1801. At a meeting of the general council of the Scottish Liberal Association at Edinburgh a resolution was unanimously agreed to, expressing indignation at Mr Carew's arrest as an outrage by he Irish Government on civil liberty and an Insult to the Scottish people.
TRIAL OF MR W. O'BRIEN, M.P. AN INDIGNANT REMONSTRANCE. SENTENCED TO SIX MONTHS' IMPRISONMENT. The trial of Mr Wm. O'Brien, under the Crimes Act, was resumed at Tralee on Tuesday. The defendant was brought from the gaol to the court- house two hours before the time fixed for the com- mencement of the proceedings,and a demonstration was therefore avoided. Mr Healy had another long interview with Mr O'Brien in the waiting room at the court-house, but made no attempt to take further part in the trial. Mr O'Brien, who looked very haggard, took his place in court *• tv.v warden-. At the sitting of the coiict Mr O'Brien, ia reply to Mr Cecil Roche, said that since yesterday evening he had considered very carefully the position he had been placed in by the outrage offered to his devoted friend and counsel Mr Healy, and he regretted to say that be could not depart from his determination not to take any further voluntary part in these proceedings. He could not possibly ask Mr Healy to return to that court. Mr Healy had done nothing whatever that did not deserve his (Mr O'Brien's) gratitude and affection. It seemed to him (Mr O'Brien) ihat during the whole of yesterday Mr Healy had displayed the most astonishing forbearance—he might say conciliation—towards the bench in the face of sneers and the exhibition of evil temper and of indecency, and he cculd not ask Mr Healy to expose himself again to the risk of outrage until at all events some reparation had been made to him for the treatment he had received. Under other circumstances Mr O'Brien said he should have desired to say something in explanation of the character of this prosecution, but he was now quite unequal to the task, and he wished the magistrateti joy of their work. Mr Cecil Roche said that as the defendant had intimated that ho would not cross-examine the witness he thought they should proceed in the ordinary way, Mr Healy having been guilty of outrageous and scandalous language in the court was ejected, and be would continue to be ejected until he withdrew an expression that was giogg contempt of court, Evidence was then gone on with. At the close of the case for the Crown Mr O'Brien asked for the speeches to be read inextenso. This slaving been done the defendant declined either to call evidence or address the court, and he was sentenced to six months' imprisonment without bard labour from the present dace, Mr Carson said that lie was instructed not to press /or any punishment if defendant would give an undertaking to take no further part in the Plan." Mr O'Brien indignantly refused.
ANDREW KNOWLE & SONS, LIMITED. ANNUAL AIEETING. The annual meeting of shareholders in this company was held on Tuesday in the Memorial- hall, Manchester, Mr Andrew Knowle, sen., presiding. The Chairman said that, speaking generally, the prospects of the coal trade were more favourable than they had been for some years past, and when good trade came the company would be quite prepared to get its share of it, for the collieries and every. thing connected with them were never in better order, and wherever new openings had been made the coal was of first-class quality. With regard to the debentures, an arraugement was concluded for the payment some fi ve years ago, wheu it was expected that better trade would come. This had not been the case, and the draw on the company had been heavier than was expected. In reply to questions, he said the company bad been labouring under considerable liabilities, which had to be met. They now owed £200,000 less, and the collieries were in first-rate order.—Mr R. Neill said they had paid too much for the concern at the beginning. (Hear, hear.)— Eventually the report and accounts were adopted, and Messrs John Chadwick and John Knowles were appointed trustees of the debenture redemp- tion fund.
CENTRAL SUNDAY CLOSING ASSOCIATION. The annual conference of the friends of the Central Association for Stopping the Sale of Intoxicating Liqu,)r on Sundays was held in Manchester on Tuesday afternoon, the Mayor of Manchester presiding. In the report it wis stated that the agitation for legislation bad eutered on a new phase of its history, and although the licensing clauses of the Local Government Bill were dropped, the proposals of the Government and the discussion which took place left the Sunday-closing movement in a favourable position, from which there was good reason to hope it would advance to complete success. Resolutions were adopted in support of the movement, and expressing the hope that in the ensuing session a measure for Sunday closing throughout England would be carried.
BARRY AND CADOXTON. BARRY WORKMEN GRACIOUSLY PER- MITTED TO VOTE AS THEY LIKE." A largely-attended moeting in support of the candidature of General Lee was held at Barry Board Schools on Tuesday evening, Mr John Robinson (tesident engineer) presiding. Amongst others present were Revs E. Morris, E. E. Allen, G. Price, W. Price, Messrs O. H. Jones, Richard Cory, A. Hood, W. Insole, G. C. Dawning, Higman, E. Hughes, C. Morgan, R. G. Morris, G. Jones, D. Griffith", and Doctors Gore and Treharue.—The Chairman, in opening the meeting, said the action he was taking in the present election was in bis private capacity, and he mentioned that he had received a telegram from Mr Walters, chief agent, statmg that the workmen could vote in any way they liked whichever way they voted they would neither offend nor favour him. General Lse, referring to the past government of the counties, said the magistrates were fairly distributed throughout the country, and referring to an objection raised against him that be was a magistrate, and that magistrates had not managed the counties well in the past, said they had only got to see what the councils would do. The magistrates had done their best, and no doubt the councils would do their best. But he did not know that they, as ratepayers and electors, would be benefitted very much by them. A resolution of confidence in the candidate was spoken to by Messrs Finch, Chandler, A. Hood, R. Cory, Woodham, and W. Insole, and was carried amid cheers, with a few dissentients. The customary thanks concluded the meeting. A crowded and enthusiastic meeting in support of Mr J. C. Meggitt was held at Cadoxton Board Schools on Tuesday night, Dr O'Donuell presiding. Tho Chairman said, in reference to circulars sent out by Mr J. Robinson, on paper headed Barry Dock and Railways," and delivered by the com- pany's policemen to voters, that the emergency committee of the Liberal Association had lodged a protest with the directors, and that reply bad been received from the secretary of the company stating that Mr Robinson was not a servant of the company, aud that if any dock official had delivered such letters, the directors would take steps to prevent such a thing occurring again. Mr M6ggitt thanked the meeting for the hearty support shown, and said ha was confident of, being returned if but a proportion of those who had [promised voted. He impressed upon them the absolute secrecy of the ballot. He mentioned that General Lee was a prominent opposer of the larger local board area, which would hava included part of the parish of St Andrew's, and which, sif included, would have added to the rateabla value to the extent of about 21,000. They did not want a landlord rep resen- tative on the council, but one who would look after the interest of the working class. There had been gross misrepresentation3 of himself during the contest, but he claimed that his actions would bear scrutiny. He asked them to go to the poll and vote for their own interests.— A resolution expressing a determination to support Mr Meggitt was carried without a single dissentient amidst great enthusiasm.

LAMP EXAMINATIONS. TO TUTC EDITOR. SIR,-In your report of to-day you state that the testing apparatus was brought from Woolwich Arsenal. In fairness to Mr Hood and Mr Griffiths, who have been deputed by those con- cerned, the apparatus has been constructed according to their design in a most efficient manner. They seem to know thoroughly what they are about, and have been recognised as having accomplished the testing to the satisfection of all concerned. But I would suggest that a report of the various lamps should be published in the columns of your valuable paper, as it would be very acceptablo information to those connected with mining in South Wales,—I am. & Feb. 13.

ABERDARE DISTRICT.—COUNTY COUNCIL ELECTION.—WARO NO. 4. TO THE EDITOR. Silt,-This election is now approaching, owing to the elevation of Mr T. P. White, Owmamau, to the aldormanic bench. Mr E. M. Hann, manager, Powell Dyffryn Collieries, a gentleman of the Conservative faith, who was beaten by a majority of nearly 300 in the last election, is still entering the contest, and bis opponent this time is Mr Thomas Davies, farmer, Abercwmboy—a sturdy Liberal, and a Gladstonian to tho core. Mr Davies is a native of Llanilltyd Fardre, and is well known here, as well as at Abercwmboy. His father before him was a very worthy man and a practical land valuer. So is his son, Mr Davies, Abercwmboy, and I consider that to be a special qualification for a member on the council. We want more farmers of Mr Davies's Rtamp to represent us. Now, let the Liberals of Ward N". 4 think the matter over well. Mr Davies is a genial, kind neighbour, and always ready to assist in any good cause for the welfare of the community at large. It is not likely that the electors will in so short a time change their-opinion of Mr Hann after his late severe defeat. It will givo us at Llanilltyd very great pleasure to find Mr Davies heading the poll. —I am, &c., A NATIVE OF LLANILLTYD.
PENYDARREN UPPER WARD ELECTION. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,—There are three candidates in the field- a Tory, one Liberal, and one so-called LiberaJ, who pointedly refused to withdraw in favour of another Liberal to avoid a contest. One of the candidates being a Tory, we need have no truck" with him. The so-called Liberal, Mr John Thomas, should also have a wide birth. He is not able to speak even in tho vernacular correctly, and as for Eng. lisb, be is totally ignorant of that language. Moreover, he has not one qualification to back him. Mr David Jones, on the other hand, is a thorough Liberal, a good speaker in both languages, and a well-educated man. He bad the courage at tbo late election to fight the most powerful Tory gentleman in Dowlais, and was defeated by only 26 votes. He deserves every support next Thursday fromallfhades of Liberals. —I am, &c., DAVID DAVIES. 13, Russell-street, Dowlais.

COLLIERY ENTERPRISE IN MONMOUTHSHIRE. TWO NEW PITS FOR ABERTILLERY. Tuesday morning broke wet, dull, and unpro- mising of any improvement in the wretched weather residents in South V/.iles have lately had to endure, and at 10 a.m. by the clock there was, so far as Cardiff was-concerned, every prospect of a day which should not fall behind any of those immediately preceding it in the race for a record of days long to be catalogued in the memory of the oldest inhabitant among those of the dampest and most miserable within bis recollection. Unpropitious as was the weather at that hour, however, it failed to deter a goodly number of folk from complying with an invitation proffered them by Messrs Hacqnoil Brothers (Cardiff) to run up to Cwmtillery, a thriving township in the neighbouring Monmouth* shire valleys. and there witness the ceremonies attending the inauguration of what promises to be a most successful commercial adventure. The Messrs Hacquoil, it should be stated, are the Cardiff agents of the Tillery Coal Company, and the ceremony to which their friends were invited was that of cutting the first sods of two new pits the company are about to sink in the neighbourhood of Abertillery. For the convenience of those invited to be present several spacious saloon carriages were bitched on to the 10.20 a.m. train leaving Cardiff for Newport, amcng those who boarded the cars being:— Messrs E. C. P. Hull, chairman (Hull, Blyth, and Co.), London J. P. Hacquoil (Hacquoil Bros.), Car- diff Miss Hacquoil. Miss .Alice Hacquoil, Mrs T. Dawson, Mrs M. Dawson, Miss Dawson; Captain Pomeroy, Dockmaster, Cardiff; Messrs E. C. Fry (Fry, Holman, and Fry), Cardiff F. S. Trayes (Trayes and Co.), Cardiff F. Widowfielu and A.

On detraining at Abertillery a slight misty rain was falling, but regardless of this the visitors walked through the village, the inhabitants of which were evidently keeping high holiday in honour of the occosiou, until .they had reached the site of the first pit, which lies close to the railway, and a little to the north of Abertillery. Here a temporary platform had been erected, oa which the ladies of the party, escorted by Mr Hull (a director of the company), together with Mr Dawson (manager), Mr John Hacquoil, and others, assembled. The Hungarian Bacd, from Cardiff, having played the March of the Men of Harlech," Mr Hull delivered a brief address, in the course of which he regretted the absence of the chairman of the company, Mr Powell, and expressed a Lope that they were that day inaugurating the commencement of a career of long and continued prosperity not only for themselves, but the inhabitants of Abertillery. -He then called upon Miss Hacquoil to cut the first sod of the new pit, a feat which that lady dexterously performed amid the approving cheers of those assembled. Mr Hull himself afterwards cut another sod, as did Mr Dawson, Mr John Hacquoil, Miss Alice Hac- quoil, and Miss Dawson. Cheers were then given for the company, for Mr Hull,and Mr Hacquoil, after which those present submitted to the ordeal of being photographed. A move was next made through the village to the site of the second pit, distant, like the first, a few yards from the Great Western Railway, and within a stone's throw of Abertillery. Here Mr Dawson again briefly addressed those present, and after- wards proceeded to remove the first sod. The ladies who had so kindly assisted in the commencement of operations at the first pit followed his example, as did a number of the gentlemen among the onlookers, and very soon the space marked out as the top of the shaft was well-nigh bereft of herbage. The Rev Mr Walters (vicar) having added a few words of congratulation, cheers were given for the directors and the Messrs Hacquoil, and the proceedings, in which the inhabitants of the village bad ail through taken the liveliest interest, terminated. THK LUNCHEON. Subsequently those who bad been specially in- vited to take part in the proceedings of the day adjourned to the Reading-room, Abertillery, and there partook "of a luncheon, the catering for which, entrusted to Messrs Culley and Barnett, a Lkti iJxciiaaga in Nothing to be desired. Mr E. C. P. Hull presided, and amongst, those present were the ladies and gentlemen whose names are given above and several local residents. At tha conclusion of the repast, the loyal toasts, given from the chair,were right loyally honoured. -The Chairman next proposed "The Bishop and Clergy of the Diocese and Ministers of all Denominations," coupling the toast with the namA of the Rav Mr Walters (vicar of Abertillery),who replied in appropriate terms.—Mr Dyna Steel (Newport) and Captain Pomeroy (Cardiff dock- 1 master) responded for "The Army, Navy. and Auxiliary Forces," also proposed by the Chair- man. Mr SAMUEL (of the firm of Webb Brothers) then gave what he characterised as the toast of the day, that of Success to the Tillery Coal Company." As a local man he could venture to say that the proceedings of that day might be pregnant with most important issues, not only to the district of which AbertiUery was the centre, but to their friends from Cardiff. (Hear, hear.) First of all, he must congratulate the company upon the possession of agents like the Messrs Hacquoil Brothers, of Cardiff, who, he felt assured, would do their best in their interests. (Applause.) There was ajglorious field before this grand enterprise, and be thought the manage- ment and staff and all concerned in the company deserved the credit of being imbued with the great principles of fair play. They would not demand more than a fair day's work for a fair day's pay, (Loud applause.) It might also be assumed that the company would assist and encourage enter- prise in the locality on which its progress so largely depended. (Hear, bear, and applause.) The company had the hearty good wishes of the community, and he hoped their Cardiff friends would take it that there w're many good things to be found in Abertillery. (Loud applause.) The CHAIRMAN, in responding, said the toast had been drunk with such hearty good will that it made one feel how great a pleasure it was tc be there that day. (Hear, hear.) At the same time he very much regretted that tho chairman of the company-, Powell, was not able to be amongst them. When he mentioned that Mr Powell had gone to Australia to see to the successful prosecu- tion of a work which would open out no less than 250 miles of country in one of our greatest depen- dencies, they would agree with him that his absence was amply atoned for, (Appiause.) As chairman of the Western Australia liaud Com. pany, the work devolved upon Mr Powell of opening up a tremendous tract of country ex. tend intr to about 20,000 acres on each side of a line 250 miles Jong in one of the most enterprising of our colonies, and which would absorb 5,000 of our surplus population. They who knew Mr Powell felt tbM; ho would settle those people to their advantage. (Loud applause.) Mr Powell took the warmest personal interest in every person connected with any of his enterprises, more especially in the welfare and prosperity of everyone associated with the Tillery Colliery Company,; from the managers downwards. (Loud and prolonged applause.) He could assure them Mr Powell took the warmest and heartiest interest in the prosperity and happiness based upon right principles and solid foundations—of every person in that neighbourhood and locality. (Hear, bear, and applausb.) His (the speaker's) visit to the district that day was far more pleasurable than bis last. They were then in very different circumstances. The Tillery Coal Company, in common with many other bimilar concerns, was labouring against great difficulties. They were practically giving away the rich product of the country, sending it far and wide, east and west, and not only not getting from it, but making loss upon loss .upon every ton which was taken away from the neighbourhood. (Hear, hear.) They were in that position that it became a question whether it was worth whi!e any longer to keep this enterprise going, and he could assure them the Tillery Company were not the only men of enterprise in this country who entertained the same feeling with regard to colliery property. (Hear, hear.) The question began to arise whether they were justified in wasting those products with which; nature had endowed them. (Loud applause.) He discussed the question with the chairman, and the latter's reply was characteristic of the man. He said, "How can we leave those people who are living up at Abertillery throw everything into confusion and not know what becomes of them 1" (Loud and prolonged applause.) The question was very often raised of the relations of labour and capital. He (the speaker) was one of those who held that labour and capital were mutually dependent. (Hear, bear, and applause.) If they were mutually dependent, the question came sooner or later whether one side should not make sacrifices for the benefit of the other. That sacrifice bad been made by the Tillery Company — (loud applause)—and on the most disinterested grounds; How pleasant therefore it was to meet that day under totally different circumstances. (Applause.) Thiugs had changed. They had arrived, after years of dimculty-and labour, at a time when they felt they were about to reap the fruits of their toil. (Renewed applause.) The ship bad gone a long way to leeward, and so near that they were almost upon the rocks, and it was a question whether the noble ship might not be allowed to wreck herself, bat, thanks to the naviga- tion of those at the helm, they bad brought her safe to port. (Loud applause.) They now had before ,;them. a period which he hoped would be one of sustained prosperity. (Applause.) Even if the present prices were not maintained, they had before them, in his opinion, the prospect of improved trade. He based that opinion upon these grounds. In the first place, he recognised the very material improvement which bad taken place in the commerce generally throughout the world. (Hear, bear,) When they compared our condition as commercial people with what it was a few years ago, when we had 600 steamers laid up unemployed, whereas now, notwithstanding the greatly increased tonnage, every steamer was employed, and steamship owners were actually afraid to calculate the profits they were making— (laughter and applause)—and when they looked at the enormous and unprecedented export of coal going on from the Welsh ports during the last few months, and remembered that for several years past the coal trade generally bad been experiencing an unexampled period of depression, they bad reasonable ground for hoping that things bad permanently improved. (Loud applause.) He thought that for a considerable time to come they would see a generally increased demand for steam coal, and that after years cf patience and trial they would reap the reward that enterprise entitled them to. (Applause.) The speaker then went on to allude in eulogistic terms to the services rendered the company by Mr John Hacquoil, whom he described as their controlling influence in Wales, and Mr Dawson, their local manager, and in conclusion announced, amid hearty applause, that arrangements bad been made whereby the men employed at the existing collieries of the company would have an oppor- tunity of celebrating the auspicious events of that day, Mr JOHN HACQUOIL (Hacquoil Bros., Cardiff) next responded, as did Mr DAWSON. Other toasts followed. During the proceedings the Hungarian Band and a local male glee party occupied the gallery of the ball, and rendered a programme of vocal and instrumental music in excellent style.
WALES v. IRELAND. SELECTION OF THE TEAM. THE LLANELLY CLUB AND THE MATCH COMMITTEE. A meeting of the match committee of be Welsh Football Tjnion was held at the Angel Hotel, Cardiff, on Tuesday evening. Mr Carlisle (Swansea) presided, and there were present-Messrs H. S. Lyne (Newport), W. Wilkins (Llanallv), and W. H. Treatt (Cardiff). The meeting had been specially called for the purpose of selecting a team to represent Wales P-gainst Ireland. on March 2ad, at Swansea, but prfor to its doing this it was called upon to receive a deputation from the Llaneliy Football Club in the parsons of Messrs R. L. Sails and J. Allen Williams. Mr SAILS, who acted as spokesman, informed the committee that a great deal of dissatisfaction existed at Lirvolly with regard to the selection of international teams generally, and especially with regard to that chosen to play against Scotland. When that team was originally selected at Bridgend, Llanelly had two places in the team, aud two other Llanelly men were appointed reserves, viz., Stephen Thomas and Gitto Griffiths. Several of the chosen team were unable to play, and in consequence the match committee had to meet again at Cardiff. That second meeting passed over Staohen Thomas, notwith- standing that the Llanelly secretary had telegraphed Mr Mullock (lion, secretary of the union) the man was able to play, and afterwards, when Stadden refused to play, Gitto Griffiths, the reserve half, waa aleo passed over, an intimation having, as in the case of Thomas, been telegraphed to Mr Mullock that Griffiths was available. Llanelly wanted to know whether it was right and proper that their reserves should have been passed over. The dissatisfaction in the Llanelly team was so great that it would be very difficult to keep the men together. They believed, in fact, that there existed in the hearts of the match committee a prejudice against Llanelly players. The deputation having retired, the committee considered the matter privately, and ultimately called the gentlemen from Llanelly, together with the representatives of the press, into the room. The CHAIEMAN then said they had considered the complaint of the deputation very carefully. In the first place, as to the selection of Stephen Thomas, a post card was sent to him to the address given by the Llanelly secretary, and no reply was received, but a telegram was received from Mr Wilkins saying Thomas could play. Having regard to the refusals of o^her Llanelly men who had promised to play, the committee had a suspicion that the Llauelly men never intended to play at all, and, time being short, they chose the best men they could get likely to play. The committee had no prejudice against any club, especially Llanelly, and the only reason for their not choosing the mon referred to was the suspicion that the Llaneliy men did not want to play. It was communicated by an authority to the match com- mittee, or a member or it, that the men from Llanelly were engaged in such work that they could at any time get off. Bearing that in mind, and the strange refusals, they thought their suspicions corroborated, but they wished to say now that they believed those suspicions to be groundless, and had they known all the facts, the Llanelly men would not have been left out. They desired, however, to make it plain that there was ground for suspicion at the time. Mr SAILS thanked the committee tor the consi- deratica they bad givau tiaomattar, but tei*srat.vi his opinion that Llanelly had not been fairly dealt by. If they suspected the men who had refused to play,they should have called upon them to give an explanation of their conduct. The CHAIRMAN: We have given you our opinion. We don't want to argue. Mr SAILS did not want to argue, but bo thought tho committee had done a wrong thing in punish- ing tivo men because they thought other three were eruiltv. n The CHAIBMAN I think the committee suspected more the action of the club. Mr SAILS could assure the committee that the club wore entirely innocent. Mr H. S. LYNE said he would like to impress upon the delegates that it was at the eleventh hour the men would have had to be called upon. He himself was in favour of crying off the Scotch r match altogether when be heard the Llanelly men could not play. Mr Mullock, however, pointed out that that was impossible. Mr WILKINS said that while it seemed Stephen Thomas had not returned his card, Griffiths bad returned bis, and had told Mr Mullock he was willing to play. Mr LYNE Perhaps Mr Mutlock will be able to explain that. Mr SAILS said that if Llaneliy had been suspected, they also had their suspicions of Cardiff when Biggs refused to play. The CHAIUIIAK having reiterated his opinion that the suspicions concerning the Llanelly men were unfounded, the deputation withdrew.

A BRUTAL ASSAULT AT SWANSEA. At the Swansea police-court on Tuesday, a labourer named Matthew Sheen, Bryo- naellin-street, was charged on a warrant with committing a brutal assault on Mary Thornton, his sister-in-law. It appeared that on the night of the 15th prisoner met complainant at the back of Ann-street. Words passed between them, the prisoner saying to the complainant, "Your mother killed mine, and now I'll take it out of you. 1 did fourteen days for your mother, and now I'll do three months for you." Prisoner then knocked her down, and, while she remained on the ground, lifted himself up by means of the wall and pitched with his feet on the poor woman's face, which was shockingly cut.—The bench charac- terized the assault as shocking, and sent prisoner to gaol for two months, and bcund him over to keep the peace for six months.

MR PITCHARD MORGAN, M.P. ADDRBS TO HIS CONSTITUENTS AT MERTHYR. STONG CONDEMNATION OF COERCION. Mr Ptchard Morgan, M.P., addressed a public ueting of his constituents on Tuesday night a the Temperance-hall, Merthyr. Mr Joseph even presided, and the hall was crowded in all pas.—Mr J. Vanghan introduced a little boy naoJ Thomas J. Williams, who presented the bon.aember with a portrait which ha had prepareior the occasion.—RevT. Petbian Davies (Aberca;id). in an able speech, moved, "That this metng emphatically condemns the uncon- stitutiorl action of the Government in reference to tbe rimes Act, and protests against the persecute of Mr Wm. O'Brien, Mr E. Harring- toe, an, other Irish leaders now in prison. Mr D. VI. Richards, Aberdare, seconded the motion. Mr RTCHAED MORGAN, M.P., on rising to addresshe meeting in support of the resolution, was reeved with much enthusiasm. He asc-ured them tIt it gave him the liveliest satisfaction to be tberagain amongst them, and to receive such an ovatn. He must be gratified indeed as one who hairepresented them for so short a space of time, ad perhaps not so worthily as their late reverednember, Mr Henry Richard, had done. (Appla,e.) But they must all make a beginnig in politics, as in everything else, and be hopt in the near tuture to earn the approba- tion of le whole of the electors of that bdfough in thesame manner as, their late respected membe (Applause.) He supported the resolu- tion wi1 all bis heart. (Hear, hear.) He assured them lat if a man of ordinary understanding were I enter the House of Commons as a j Coservative or as a Liberal Unionistv he coal not, after hearing the harrowing tales which ere told night after night in the House of Commas, and seeing the great indignity to which leinbers of that House—representatives of the peille-were put by this Tory coercion Go- vernmit,he said that a man,whatever bis politics might 9,when he entered the House of Commons could come to no other conclusion after he hadbeen there a short time than that the Torieawere totally unfit to wield the power. (Applase.) That a man, for exercising the igbt of a British subject the freedoi of speech should be sent to gaol, nd there to suffer every indignity was a urning shame. (Applause.) They would bo gli to see, as he was glad to see, that the anti-cercionists, who were desiring to give Irolan a fair measure of Home Rule, were iucreainv day by day. Tho only hope that the Conservatives had was that Parliament would last some time, ar.d tfct there was a possibility of the Grand Old Man assing away. They would be glad to hear that te Grand Old Man had received a great deal of betfht from his recent sojourn in the sunuy clirne.and that unpropitious though the weather was :hat day, he (Mr Gladstone) would be in is place on the morrow in the House of Comtuns, when on Thursday they might look out for Fualls. (They might rely upon it the Goveament would have a very high time of it, and tfet they would have to look to their laurels if thewisbed to continue in office. They would,be bel.cwd, have a perfect revolt and insurrection throiihout the country if the indignities now heapa upon the representatives of the people went n. Coming to affairs at Merthyr, he said, with egard to the Liberal Association, that it was toir bounden duty to accept the verdict of the mjority of the electors who had sent him to ParHinent, If they did not do so, what was the use of their being allovnd to exercise the liberty of the franchise ? If tie Liberal Association, or the Labour Assoiation-which be would be pleased to see formd when thoy were prepared to establish it-o other body bad any communication to rake, he would he pleased to receive it. Havhg given an account of various measures on wbic the House divided last session, Mr Prit- char< Morgan went on to say that as a matter for the f.ture he proposed to deal with the question whic. affected Wales more than any other Vest.on-royalties. He intended to support Mr Dillvyn in his disestablishment motion. The hon. gentleman also expressed himself in favour of fee education and intermediate schools in Wales, He referred to a paragraph in the Sout! Wales Daily News to the effect that Mr Vaahan had contradicted the rumour that he had an intention of resigning as member for Merhyr, and assured them he had no intention I of giving up his seat unless called upon by the grea; majority of them to do so. (Cheers.) Tie resolution was carried amid cheers.—On the proposition of Mr K. M, Thomas, seconded Mr Williams, a vote of confidence in Mr -loigan was passed with enthusiasm. Mr PBITCHABD MORQAS said he regretted that he would now ba unable to address meetings I elstvhere in the locality, but he intended visiting Methyr again next Easter.
