THE GOVERNMENT'S BREACH OF AGREEMENT WITH MUNITION WORKERS. I The creation of the new depart ment of the Government for the supply of munitions was a conse- quence of the recognition of the immense importance of thorough- ly equipping the huge army suddenly called into being because Df the war. To-day, the numbers in the standing army are thirty times those of the peace organisa- tion but apart from this enor- mous increase in personnel, there had to be. met the immense demand for munitions to meet the modern conditions of war- fare, so that no comparison is possible in rpspwefc of the needs for war munitions now and in t peace time. It was consequently recognised that the maximum service must be exacted from the nation's workers, male and < female, and it became imperative that such trade-union regula- tions and restrictions as were im- posed in peace time should be discontinued. Such concession by the workers, required that there shouid be limitation to the possibilty of excess profits conse- quent upon any concession made by labour. The employers were as willing to admit the justice of this as the Minister of Munitions and bis colleagues, so that no objection whatever was made to the proposed limitation of profits on war munitions. Thus, in the Act establishing the Ministry of Munitions, there was embodied not only the conditions enforced upon trade-unions and employers but the decision of the Govern- ment. and Parliament regarding profits. The Act laid down specifically what profit the employers were to take, the balance going to the Treasury: it did nofc define the proportion the State was to have. There en ii be no question of the splendid ♦worn done under the Act. It is true (hat a fuller measure of compliance with its conditions wns uosRible irr some cases and at some periods on the part of the workers, but so far as employers are-concerned there has never been i he slightest suggestion of anything but the highest patriot- ism and the fullest determination to use every available means for meei ing the requirements of the Navy and the Army.

THE WELSH HOSPITAL, NETLEY. I FLAG DAY AT BARMOUTH. Next Saturday, the 15th instant, has been appointed as a Flag Day at Bar- mouth in aid of one of the best philan- thropic movements ever instituted in the principality of Wales, viz., the Welsh Hospital at Netley. When so many institutions are voluntarily maintained, and when so many worthy objects are calling for public support, a word or two of the history of the Welsh Hospital would not be amiss. The institution has ^ow been in exis- tence for fifteen months. It was presented as a worthy gift by the princi- pality of Wales to the War Office and accepted by them for service with the Expeditionary Force in August, 1914. The offer was first made on behalf of the Welsh people to provide and main- tain a hospital of 100 beds with the necessary staff for a period of six months. By November, 1914, the hospital was fully equipped to accomo- date 100 patients, and on the 3rd of that month the first convoy of wounded ,arrived. Since then it has been extensively enlarged, and to-day con- tains 200 beds for men and 12 for oiffcers. Towards tbe end of 1915 a request was made by the War Office that Wales would staff a 1040 bedded hospital for overseas service and to maintain the hospital at Netley aa heretofore. In December, 1915, it was decided to undertake the responsibility to carry out the request of the War Office. The number of patients who have recei'ved the best of treatment at the Welsh Hospital since its opening is 2216. The average cost of maintaining the Hospital as it now stands is 91,100 per month. In view of the ever increasing necessity at the present time and the pressing need for further hospital accommodation, the Welsh Hospital Committee has undertaken this fresh responsibility in the fullest confidence that the Welsh people will not hesitate to find sufficient money to carry on the Hospital at Netley, which has done such excellent work, and, in addition provide comforts for the Overseas Unit. Barmouth people have already in- terested themselves in this most excel. lent Institution, a number of kind- hearted friends have joined together and endowed a bed which is designatpd as the Barmouth Bed, for the duration of the war at the rate of twenty-six shillings a week. On Saturday next, a special opporr tunity will be given 'to everyone-t-ich and poor, young and od-to do their share in this work of mercy, the sole object of which is to alleviate the pain, and help to keep alive our brave men who have sacrificed their ALL to pro- tect us from the inhumanity of a ruthless and cruel, foe. The arrangements for Saturday are in the able bands of Miss Do] i Richards, Greenhill, who has on many occasions proved herself a capable organizer. She is assisted by a number of willing friends. If any kind visitors ot- ot-hers would like to assist in spiling the flags, Miss Richards would only be too pleased to riinke arrangoments if consulted fri good time The need for funds is pressing, the opportunity of assisting in a Cause so worthy is a pri- vilege, and we hope and believe that Barmouth will respond generously.
