SOUTH WALES COLLIERY MANAGrEKS. ANNUAL DINNER AT CARDIFF. 0 t Saturday evening the annual dinner of ae South Wales and Monmouthshire Coll'jry Managers Association was held at the Angel Hotel, Cardiff. Mr John Evans, D.C (Abertysswg) the president of the as- sociation), presided, supported by Mr J. P. Gib ;ou, Maesteg (retiring president), Col. Pea so" and Mr T. Greenland Davies (H.. i. luspeotors of Mines), Alderman J. T. ards (Cardiff), Mr Evan Owen, J.P. (Oat ail), and others. Ai lefmau J. T. Richards submitted "The Soma Wales and Monm juthshire Branch of the National Association of Colliery Man- ager Having referred to the Senghonydd explosion, he expressed a hope that what- ever new legislation with regard to mining might be contemplated the authorities would not fail to seek the assistance and advice of the South Wales colliery man- agers and others whose duties and experi- ence entitled them to a hearing. (Hear, heav.) Councillor John Evans (president), said that whatever might be said of their legis- lator, he feared that the principal mistake consisted in having the wrong people on Committees of the Hou-ie of Commons in charge of Mining Billi. He recounted a visit, paid by him to the Committee having charge of the 1911 Mines Bill, and said that he was sorry to find that with the exception of Sir Arthur Markham notie of the other mc ubors knew anything of the subject with I which they were called upon to deal. The object of that Association was to ad vance tir knowledge of colliery managers, to in- ert se their efficiency, and to make them in evt. y way better fitted to carry out their duties. In so doing the Association were als advancing the interests of the colliery ow Jers, and no manager could be loyal to I his employers unless he made himself thoroughly acquainted with all mat,ters ap- pertaining to present day conditions of mining. (Hear, hear.) The Association, he added, had been in existence for several years, and its influence was such as could not be ignored in the framing of mining legislation, even by the Home Office itself Tl,y would be shortly faced with new leg- islation relating particularly to coal dust, and he urged all colliery managers to join the Association with a view of having this question thoroughly discussed and ventila- toL (Hear, hear.) Ivif J. P. Gibbon, che retiring president of wie Association, who also responded, said th /j if colliery managers were as bad as some people wished to paint them, they were a body of men who cared nothing for tho lives of those in their charge, and were thoiefore ready to commit suicide because .tbi-,y themselves spent most of their time underground. He asked them whether they looked like men who were bent on se'f-destruction. (Laughter.) They un- doubtedly had their difficulties. As long as a colliery manager kept his colliery safe and mde it pay he was a first-class man, but no sooner did an accident occur at the colliery than there was nothing too bad to say about him, and that everything which he should have done had been left undone. He was sorry having to speak thus, but having re- gard to certain inquiries that had been held within the past few months he felt perfectly justified in doing so. (Hear, hear.) Per- soaally, he was very sorry that such a stIgma had been cast upon a body of men whom he considered as conscientious in the discharge of their duties as any in the whole of the United Kingdom. (Cheers.) Notwithstanding that, they were not going to relax their endeavours in doing every- thing they possibly could in making the imnes as safe as it was possible to make them. The City and Trade of Cardiff" was proposed by Mr Thomas Williams (Nixon's) who said that with the present number of sinkings contemplated there was likely to a great increase in the coal output of South Wales, and the time was not far distant hen they would find the facilities for ship- MMMMM 1 ping the coal were insufficient and would seriously impede the working of the col- lieries. Mr Evan Owen, responding, as- sured the gathering that as far as it lay in the power of the Lord Mayor and the Cor- poration of Cardiff they would do all they could to facilitate the shipment of coal raised at the collieries. Mr Hedley Clarke (Cambrian Combine) submitted H.M. Inspectors of Mines," and Colonel Pearson and Mr Greenland Davies responded. The former said that while the colliery managers of South Wales bad been faced with great difficulties they were over- coming them remarkably well and as an Inspector he could tell them that less trouble was experienced with the colliery managers of South Wales than those of any other coalfield in the kingdom, the reason being that what had now been made com- pulsorily in other coalfields had been done voluntarily in South Wales for many years. (Applause).
Have you a good appetite ? Good appetite means more than the mere desire for food. Generally speaking, it may be taken as a sign that you are in a state of good health, with your digestive system in good tone, active, and doing its daily work of extracting nourishment from the food you eat. If you can't eat, or don't want to eat, teu to one something is amiss with the stomach, liver, or bowels. Try the effect of taking Mother Seigel's Syrup after your meals for a time Then watch how this splen- did herbal remedy sharpens the appetite, and tones up the digestive system. It enables you to cut with a relish, and when you have eaten, the food enriches your blood and increases your strength and vitality, Tens of thousands have proved this to be true.
EAST GLAMORGAN LIBERALISM. The annual meeting of the East Glamor- gan Liberal Association was held at Ponty- pridd on Friday, when delegates were pre- sent from every polling district in the con- stituency. Councillor D. Roberts, Ynysy- bwl, who presided, alluding to the Ulster crisis, said that officers holding high rank were being encouraged by responsible mem- bers of the Opposition to refuse to do their duty. He was afraid those officers were politicians fitst and soldiers afterwards, and if that were so the sooner the better they got rid of them. (Applause.) The following officers were elected:— President, Lord Pontypridd treasurer, Mr Hopkin Alorcian bon. secretary, Mr Huw T. Richards; auditors, Messrs E. Richards (Hengoed) and J. T. Jones (Porth) while Dr. Edwards (Aberfan) was added to the list of vice-presidents. Mr Clement Edwards, M.P., proposed a resolution protesting against the organised attempt of the Tory party to incite the Army and Navy to mutiny, welcoming the strong declaration of the Premier, and pledging support to the Government in vin- dicating the principles of civil liberty by resisting dictation to Parliament from offi- cers in the Army or any other quarter than the electors of the United Kingdom. The hon. member said that Ulster was being used as a pawn in the Tory game to defeat the democracy and to wipe out the Parlia- ment Act. The Tory party were prepared to take any risks rather than the democracy should control the whole machinery of government in this country. It was quite possible, after passing the Home Rule and Disestablishment Bills, they would have to go to tho country for a renewed mandate so that tho Government could get at death grips with this monster of reaction. If the fight was to be within the next few weeks or next year, he was confident that the democratic forces would again triumph. (Applause). The resolution was carried with enthusiasm.

THE WEST MON. CONFLICT. COUNCILLOR E. DAVIES AT RHYMNEY. It was a very sparse attendance that met at the Workmen's Institute on Monday evening to wel- come Mr Evan Davies, D.C., Ebbw Vale, as one of the labour candidates for the parliamentary seat in the West Monmouthshire constituency. Mr George Jones, who presided, outlined the object of the meeting, pointing out that a ballot would take place on Thursday and Friday amongst the electors in the West Monmouthshire constituency. Four names were being submitted to the electorate, and each of the candidates had permission to address one meeting in each local- ity. Mr Davies was present in accordance with that agreement. Councillor W. C. Williams, a member of the Executive Committee of the West Monmouthshire Labour Party, said he was surprised that Mr Davies was the only one of the four nominees who had come to Rhymney. At the meeting at New- port it had been decided that Messrs Evan Davies, Edward Gill, Alfred Onions, and William Brace should be ballotted upon as to who was the most desirable candidate to represent the working classes in the constituency, each being allowed to go around the district to hold one meeting in each place to lay their views before the electors. He was sorry to see such a sparsely attended meet- ing, but hoped that each one would distribute amongst their fellow electors the statements that would be made. He had met Mr Davies upon several occasions as the secretary for the Associ. ation of Friendly Societies of Monmouthshire. He was also a member of the Ebbw Vale Urban Council. He (Mr Williams) asked those present to assist in the ballot by seeing that only electors on the West Monmouthshire side would vote, ag a resident at Pontlottyn or in the East Glarmor- gan division were not entitled to vote in this ballot. Mr Evan Davies, who received a splendid ova- tion on rising, said he was pleased that the pre- vious speakers had not referred to one candidate mure t'aau another. lie was there that night in an apologetic manner, and was sorry that the other candidates had not availed themselves of the power granted by the executive committee. He understood that Mr Onions and Mr Brace had decided not to address any meetings. They knew Mr Brace's oratorical powers, but regarded it at unfair that he did not go around the constit- uency, thus placing him (the speaker) at a disad- vantage. It was not so much to him a personal question, but rather that the electors should have an opportunity of seeing each one of the candi- dates, and thus be in a better position to chose who was the most worthy of their vote. (Hear, hear.) He regarded it as a duty that a candidate should shew himself, not for bis own personal aggrandisement, but that the electors should see who they were nominating to the position. No one was more surprised than himself when the Trades' and Labour Council at Ebbw Vale, repre- senting 10,000 member, nominated him for the seat. He was not there that night touting for votes. He was glad that the Labour Party in West Monmouthshire had conducted the proceed- ings in connection with that seat in a perfectly democratic manner, and it was no fault of his or the party that the other nominees had not been to Rhymney and other places in the constituency. In 1906 tne Whip of the Liberal Paity decided that South Glamorgan was a Labour Constit- uency. Mr William Brace fought it and defeated Major Wyndham Quinn by 4,000 votes. He ac- complished what no Liberal could have done. Why, then, should he leave what had been won for the democracy and virtually hand the seat over to the Tory Party ? South Glamorgan Liberal Party had given over their interests to the son of a ii.»rd, ana tue flesh was prone to pan- der to lords and dukes. There will be a three cornered fight in the constituency, that was why he regarded it was a foolhardy game to leave the result to vested interests. (Hear, hear.) Refer- ring to politics, he said that Ireland was made only a pawn in the great game. He agreed that Ireland should control her own affairs. Wales, too, was entitled to Home Rule, and he thought if this was done there would be less drunkenness in Wales than there was at present. He believed in Liberalism, but not the Liberalism of Mr D. A. Thomas, he was prepared to follow Mr Lloyd George. The fearless manner in which the man from Criccieth had, and was tackling vested in- terests put the very soul into politics. There was no better man for the emancipation of the work- ing classes than Mr Lloyd George. (Hear, hear.) If the working classes would only exercise the robustness of the Liberal Party and exorcise the franchise with the same manner, there would be a greater revolution in this country than will ever take place in Ulster. He referred then to the speech of Mr John Ward in the House of Com* me-ns iast week for an exhibition of the powers of the Labour Party. Ainidtt a scene unparallelled in history, the representative of the Navvies stood up in the House of Commons and dared to say that neither the King or the Army was to inter. fere with the politics of this country. He referred to the land question, and denounced the practice of a man having to pay ground rent, and another who nad done nothing to command it. The speaker next referred to the hardships which farm labourers had to endure, and explained why they invariably voted in favour of a Conservative. Polities, he said, should be a tremendous reality. It was a game which was being played by the aris- tocracy in the House of Lords that brought about a revolution of feeling, and the passing of the Parliament Act, which made it no longer possible for the House to balk the desires of the demo- cracy, (Applause). Mr Lewis, gas fitter, did not put any ques* tion to the candidate, but said that the Liberal party in West Monmouthshire were determined to run a candidate. Mr Daniel Thomas said the power of the Labour element was by far the strongest in that constituency. He did not agree with the policy that some desired, that the Labour party in the House of Commons should vote purely upon labour matters. There were other great vital issues Io the Labour party. Mr 1. B. Lewis, in moving a vote of thanks to the speaker, said the brilliant address to which they hiid listened should be an encouragement to the young men because Mr Davies came from the working forces. There had been a tendency on the part of labour to lie down, but they wanted to go ahead. Mr Ben Probert seconded the motion, and eulogised Mr Davies for his address. The motion was carried with acclamation. A vote of thanks to the Chairman terminated the meeting.
