Watkiiis, explained that after the arbitrator made his award a conference of societies was called, and this confe-rence failed to agree to carry out the award.

Some of the employees had taken this advance, but others bad refused. Many members took part in Á the discussion, from which it was obvious that- Abercynon was in favour of honourably carry' ■f 1n.g oilt the award.
