OGMORE AND GILFACH MINERS. LABOUR REPRESENTATION. The monthly meeting of the above District was held at Blackmili on Saturday. Mr. Hopkin Evans, Gilfach Goch, presided. The Chairman referred to the honour con- ferred upon him by his fellow-workmen, and trusted that he would have the assistance and co-operation of the district officers and dele- gates in carrying out his duties. Mr. D. J. Harris, Gilfacn Goch, was ap- pointed teller. Mr. Fred! Jones, senior auditor, reported that they had examined the books and ac- counts of the district and found them correct, and kept in a very satisfactory manner. The Chairman and treasurer were ap- pointed to make inquiries with a view to re- forming the Caradog Vale Lodge, which was dissolved some time ago in consequence of the colliery closing. The colliery has now been re-opened. A lengthy discussion took place in reference to the action of the Executive Council in re- fusing to call the adjourned conference to consider the advisability of adopting a Labour candidate for Mid-Glamorgan.—Several dele- gates complained that the Executive had ex- ceeded their authority by their action, but inasmuch as some of the lodges had not dis- cussed the matter, it was decided to refer the question back to the lodges, cmd also to ascer- tain their views as to the action to be taken in future, should a vacancy occur. The Agent, in his report, stated that the resolution of the last meeting re printing the shorthand notes of the Conciliation Board proceedings was under consideration by the Central Executive, they had also ruled (in reply to an appeal by the Wvndham lodge) that it was illegal to pay delegates from dis- trict funds. The Agent also referred at length to local disputes at the various collieries, and the settlement at the Glamorgan Colliery. In reply to a question, it was stated that the Ocean Colliery 2ft. 9in. seam dispute had been referred to Messrs. F. L. Davies and Mabon, M.P., but they had not yet met. It was 'hoped that they will meet at an early date. A deputation attended to solicit support on behalf of the Risca miners, and it was decided to place this matter on the next agenda, as well as the appeal of Gilfach Goch lodge for those who are still idle. The receipts amounted to JE189 5s. Oid. 2
