THE COAL CRISIS. While there is no sign as yet of any agreement be- ing come to between the coal-owners and the miners generally, the outlook for the public appears slightly more promising. It is reported in trade union quarters that a number of the Federated pits will be restarted this week at the old rate of wages. The Coalowners' Federation, however, de not, it is stated, fear any secession. At the adjourned conference of members of Parliament at the National Liberal Club, Mr Woods, M.P,, said that if nothing unforeseen occurred he in- tended to move the adjournment of the House of Com- mons in order to draw attention to the coal trade dis- pute. A resolution was passed expressing sympathy with the colliers. Mr Bainbridge, a Derbyshire col- liery proprietor, took part in the discussion. He said the employers had been compelled by the fall in prices to call for a reduction, and he gave instances where the collier's average earnings were 7s lid per day.
