The Rhondda Collier; Enginemei's Dispite. AN IMPORTANT MEETING. A well-attended meeting of the colliery enginemen and stokers of the Rhondda and Ogmore districts was held on Wednesday evening, at the Windsor Castle Hotel, Ton-Ystrad, to consider the step to be taken in regard to the notices to terminate contracts. It will be remembered that, the employers having given notices ef a reduetien of 21 per eent., the men objected and gave notices to terminate contracts un- less the employera withdraw the 2! per cent. redac- tion, and further, a 2, per cent. not granted at the proper time was now claimed by the men. These notices expired on Wednesday night, and, no settle- ment oaring been arrived at, the question was what should be done.—After discussing the matter carefully the meeting decided to offer to go on from day to day pending a settlement. Each delegate was to tase this offer to the colliery he represented, and upon the acceptance of it depends the question of stoppage or otherwise of a large number of collieriea. It is stated that pits outside the Coalowners' Associ- ation are affected by the dispute, some of them pay- ing even lower wagea than the asaeeiated employers. Tne Ocean Company's collieriea, however, are not affected by it. We understand that, among employers who accede to the men's suggested "day to day" COB- tract are tbe owners of Pentre, Gelli, Tynybedw, and Mardy collieries, represented by Mr W. Thomas, Brynawel.
