ANTHRACITE HAULIERS' DEMANDS. At the Anthracite miners' delegate meeting on Saturday it was reported the chairman had received a letter in- timating on behalf of the Coal Con- troller, that the proposal to send Welsh miners out to work in oollieries in France had. after minute considera- tion, been abandoned. As a matter of fact, no Welshmen have been sent to France under that scheme. The question of supporting the de- mands Ci the colliery hauhers for cer- tain improved terms of employment was considered, and it was decided to support its submission to the council of the Federation at Cardiff. Although termed for brevity's sake, "the hauliers' demands," the claims put forward are on behalf of riders, hauliers, shacklers, and trammers. The main points put forward are-:—(a) To claim not less than 7s. 6d. per day standard and current percentages; (b) where two hauliers working to the same parting, half a shift per week to be paid for dividing iffie turn where there are more than two haul- iers driving to the same parting, one turn per week to be paid, etc. (c) whom riders, hauliers, trammers, and shacklers have to work in water, a turn extra per week shall be paid; (d) a lump sum of £1 to be paid for breaking horse in; (e) turn a week to be paid for a horse that is a kicker.
