SOUTH WALES MINING NOTES.

SOUTH WALES MINING NOTES. The Rhondda House Coal Miners' Association held their monthly meeting at the Washington Hotel, Porth, on Monday, when the agent, Mr. M. Weeks, gave a lengthy report. He said disputes existed at the Blackgrove and Mynachddu Collieries. These matters were left in the hands of the workmen and agent to try and settle. The dispute at Messrs." Nixon's Collieries, Mountain Ash, which has been of long standing, was put before the Sliding Scale Conimittee, and left in the hands of Sir W. T. Lewis and Mr. Abraham, M.P., but these gentlemen failed to agree upon certain points, and consequently the men again tendered notice to terminate contracts. It is reported that it is only a few of the miners of these collieries who have pressed these matters to the front. Therefore the men have decided to use the ballot so as to test the men as to whether they will strike, if the points in dispute are not conceded. Should a strike be decided upon it will affect a large number of workmen, and teach the management a severe lesson. The South Wales Sliding Scale Committee met at the Angel Hotel, Cardiff, on Monday, when disputes at the Tycoedand Werfa Collieries jpere reported. The Employers' Association met at the ter- mination of the joint meeting, but so far as can be gathered nothing has leaked out as to their deliberations. Not even a word is stated with regard to the approaching end of the sliding scale, notwithstanding the fact that the first half of the notice has nearly expired. The Miners of Monmouthshire and South Wales will be wise on the next monthly holiday to discuss these two important questions, the sliding scale and small coal question, and con- sider the advisability or otherwise of calling a separate general delegate meeting, apart from any federation or association, and decide what action shall be taken.-Cor. jJ 11"1
