THREATENED EXTENSION TO WHOLE OF YORKSHIRE. There is a growing fear that the miners' strike at Rotherham may become much more serious than was at first supposed. No sign of a settlement is yet observ- able, but. on the other hand there are rumours that the local colliery owners are only acting in accord with the agree- ment oorae to by the masters' association, and cannot give way without the consent of that body. The minimum wage offered at Rotherham is the same as that which is paid at other collieries in Yorkshire, and this circumstance makes the danger of a county strike greater. Interviewed during the week-end one of the men's local leaders expressed the opinion that b"t far the advice given by Mr Herbert Smith, president of the Yorkshire Miners' Association, many other pits in Yorkshire would already have been set down. He described a county strike as inevitable unless the men's demands are granted next week, and said that the men may then either tender their notices or come out imme- diately. At the meeting held on Saturday, the men employed at Dinllingtoll Main Col- liery, near Rotherham. expressed sym- pathy with Rotherham strikers, and de- cided to support the movement for taking county action on their behalf. —————— 9 8 0
