Dowlais District Sued. I POLITICAL LEVY CASES ADJOURNED. I At the Merthyr County Court on Wednesday, I two cases weise mentioned in which Coun. John Davies, as District Agent to the S.W.M..F. was the defendant, and in which the plaintiffs, Alec Lewis and, Thomas Jenkins—both mem- bers of the organisation—were represented by Mr F. S. Simons.—Mr Roberts, for the defend- ants, questioned the jurisdiction of the Court, and in asking for an adjournment said that the ease was one of more than local interest. It affected the funds of the M.F.Cr.B.—Mr. Si- mons claimed that the defendants knew on May 30 that the proceedings were going to be taken, but they had taken no steps to bring the matter to a. head, which was what the plaintiffs wan- ted. They were, however, prepared to consent to an adjournment on the terms that the Par- liamentary levy made by the Dowlais district was made in accordance with law.—Mr Roberts said that there was no Parliamentary levy made. The matter affected the MkFGr.B. under rules made under the Trades Union Act of 1913. —Mr Simons said that in the early months of 1915 they had a, separate levy of 3d every three months. for Parliamentary and political purposes, but some difficulty seemed to arise in collecting that money, and then, from Febru- ary on, instead of having a separate levy of 3d fo:* political levy, the levy was merged in a genera l levy of 2/ and they drew from that fund for the payment of the Parliamentary levy. Mr Roberts consented to the terms named with- out prejudice to his case.
