THE STOPPAGE OFv'WELSH Coll LIE RIE IT is stated that the directors of the Wynn- stay Colliery Company, Limited, Ruabon, have also decided to close the Plaskynaston Colliery at Cefn Mawr -where about 600 men are employed—in addition to the Green Pit-at which over 1,300 men are engaged— and the news, therefore, has caused very considerable excitement in East Denbigh- shire. The following is the text of the no- tice in question :— To the surface and underground work- men employed by the Wynnstay Colliery Company, Limited.-—Notice is hereby given to all persons employed by the Wynnstay Colliery Company, Limited, that from and after Saturday next, 20th February, all con- tracts of service will be terminated, and no workmen will be further required.' It is understood that the notice was is- sued as the result of the last meeting of the directors (of whom Mr. A. E. Boyd is chair- man), and owing to the nature of the dis- pute it is feared that the collieries wiH be entirely closed. The inhabitants of the district naturally feel great anxiety in regard to the situation. From past experience they know too well what it means to ihave 1,600 unemployed men in their midst; and more especially do the tradespeople feelithe gravity of affairs, A great many of them have never recovered from the effects of the last lock-out.
