ME. HUMPH RE YS-OWEN AND THE WELSH- POOL AND DISTRICT TEACHERS- ASSOCIATION. To the Editor of the COUNTY TIMES AND POST. Sir,—I was much amused at the promises given by Mr Humphreys-Owen to the deputation of the Welshpool and District Teachers' Association. It is stated that he was in favour of better payment of teachers, less work, and best of all, protection from wrongful dismissal. Mr Humphreys-Owen is a director of the Cambrian Railways Company, and according to the evidence of numbers of witnesses given before the Select Committee on hours of labour of railway servants, numbers of men worked on the Cambrian Railways for 20, 30, 40 and one 48 hours at a stretch, and secondly that they received the most miserable wages, 8s a week being considered a good wage for men in charge of signals. The secretary (Mr J. Conacher) stated that this system had gone on for 20 years. I self had a porter at Montgomery station in cbarj? of the signals and on regular duty for 12 t° hours a day, and who received 5s a week. wrongful dismissal everybody knows that I a"J. living example of that, for according to the veT of the Select Committee I was dismissed main^If :1 consequence of the evidence 1 gave before committee, and yet here is Mr promising this deputation to vote against w1 three things he himself was at least a party to, ao who never lifted his finger to prevent such w'r(\vL ful doings. The most amusing thing is that Teachers' Association being aware of the faC stated should hava waited on Mr Humphreys-O^6 for such a purpose. I am afraid they will live long time before they get what they want if tb< £ have no one to defend their cause better than Humphreys-Owen. I deeply sympathise with them, Yours itc., Harford House, Ellesmere, JOHN HoOD, June 3rd, 1896. ♦- n-
