FIVE LONG YEARS OF RHEUMATISM. Release from Torture gained by the purifying influence of Dr. WiHiams* Pink Pills. Every spell of chilly or damp weather is liable to excite Rheumatism* in those who are subject to this painful disorder, which originates in the blood, accumulates there, fl.anetimcs for years, before it matees its presence felt. Liniments and emibrocoitions cannot cure Rheumatism because they do not the blood of the poisons that cause Rheumatism, whereas Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure because they purify and erfrjch the blood. To quote one instance among many, Mrs. E. Chillier,, of 13, Field How, Stoke, Coventry, mentions: "For five years I suffered more than words can tell from Rheumatism. D'ay and night my tortures were intense, and every change to bad weather excited worse sufferimn1. Kheu .nua- tism began after I caught a chill, -it first severe p,ains seiized my aims and leg" and I began to feel a soreness in my flesh. Soon I could not mo ve without! causing; sharp pain along my limb". I had medical treatment, and was told jhat my trouble was I Mrs. E. Collier. se vere KineuniaM&m. x applied iomenta- tions and liniments, and took different physics. Sometimes the tortures seemed to be easing, but just when I grew hopeful of a cure the agony grew worse than ever. 'After an active life I could not hroir the thought of being so crippled and kept a pirii'tner. But all the treatments failed, and in time I Wis bedrid den. dependent upon friends for every help. I could not turn in bed, nor raise myself, ixxr take a mouthful of nourishment without eonTeone to help me. After much meckcine my limbs remained useless and all my strength seemed gone. "One day I was persuaded by a friend to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pi^s. The first change was an improved appetite. Before long the Rheumatism was easier, and 1 went on steadily improving till every trace was gone. I gained new blood and grew stronger, and soon could get about quite happily. In time I was completely cured by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People.

INI the attempt a few years ago to stop 20,000 j papers being sold a.b Swansea on tie S.1ib- bath. This attempt to deprive people of wha.t they wanted to read was unreasonable and breathed of the intolerance of the 17th century—one of the worst periods in history, Other people had their libraries and books— some Sunday schools sold their magazines on the it not intolerant to force one's opinion on others? He had not any selfoli interest in Sunday papers, for if those were stopped the people would more largely buy those of the night before. But i ho "spoke froin 4tbe. coint of view ..of free- dom, as one who wa.nted freedom not only for himself, but others. To many thousands of working men Sunday papers were the only things they had to read, and surely it was f.-i,r better than spending the day out of their homes to the detriment often of them selves and their family. Personally, lie be- lieved too many shops were open on the Sabbath, but the fact, of nearly '400 being opened demonstrated clearly one fact, that, there was a large demand foT them, and it argued that by closure they were going to interfere with a large proportion of the neople. Many women, too. could not by force of their husbands' negligence purchase their good on Saturday night. Swansea i a large seaport town vessels arrived at every tide at all times; a large trawling fic-et was attached to the harbour. Let them CLOSE THE OBJECTIONABLE SHOPS by all means. Taking his own ward, thou- sands of neople came to the sands on a Sunday. Were these visitors to be de- prived of a meal or refreshments, and compelling them to frequent the public- house, which they could not close to bona- fides, and which separated husband, wife and child, for the last named could not cuter licensed premises. There were, in c(-nc l zl, i on, said -N l r i conclusion, said Mr. D. Davies. only a few t-owns where the obsolete t-Qr. rather a portion of it—was enf Mr. Laugharne Morgan seconded thd amendment. Mr. )lolynŒx criticised the secti<ms of the recent deputation to the Watch Committee and said that the sum and substance of their arguments wa.s that the Council allowed some tradNS to trade on seven days whilst 1 other traders only opened on six days. He thought that the Council ought not to decide as between traders and traders. His im- pression was that the deputation were more interested in the trade point of view than the Sabbatarian point of view, and he thought they should as a Council stand by the guns and not take up a matter that was really ona for the Government to tackle. It would be much safer to leave things as they were. Mr. Powlesland asked Mr. Davies to go further and move that the Council do not put the Act into force, otherwise he himself would have to submit a.nother amendment. Ald. Davies said he must abide by his amendment, as he wanted more information on the subject. Mr. Clancy said that whilst he sympath- ised with Mr. Tutton's motion, yet he was going to vote for the amendment, as he wanted more information on the subject. If they could cloce the refreshment houses, that were simply dens of gambling, he would support it, but in his ward there were sev- eral traders who if they closed on Sundays would have to come upon the rates. They would therefore see that he was in a very difficult position. Mr. Sinclair said that personally he would close every shop that was not absolutely required to be opened on Sundays, but he could not agree to do so under an Act which wa.s to all intents and purposes obsolete, and which would BRING ABOUT PERSECUTION and would not produce the desired results. Ald. Colwill asked if the Act were put into force whether the Council would have the power to discriminate. The Town Clerk: No. I think the Act gives no such power. Ald. Merrells Gives no power, but you can use your own discretion. Aid. Tutton. speaking to the amendment, appealed to the Council to have the courage of their convictions and deal with their own wants and requirements without calling upon the Government to do it. Mr. David Williams also supported the amendment and said that if they put into force all the powers they possessed it meant under the Act of Charles II. the clos- ing of all things which destroyed the Sab- bath, and it might be that they would see Ald. Ben Jones marched off to St. Thomas or St. Mary's Church once on the Sun- day-- Ald. Jones I would rather go there than nowhere at all. Mr. Williams said that when the Act was put into operation the least harip|ul,jwere j closed and THE MOST PERNICIOUS REMAINED < OPENED all the time as they did to-day, whilst in any event they would still have the refresh- ment houses to contend with. It was from the refreshment houses that they got the rowdy lad and the rowdy girl. He did not buy a newspaper on Sunday, but he read papers and he L wanted to have the right to read the literature that was suitable to his purpose. The danger of the thins: was that if they put tihs Act into force the next thing ? would be no ]j<?tcal mect'm.?s, no Trades, Union meetings on Sundays, with the result that 670,000 raihvavmen in the country would be debarred from meeting to discuss their Union business because they cold not meet on any other day. Ald. Merrells said that Mr. Molyneux had struck the real keynote when he said the agitation was an economic one, and not a sentimental or, a Sabbatarian one. He sug- gested seriously that the Town Clerk should obtain a list of the sha-heholders of the local works to see who were the people who ca.r- ried on Sunday labour. In this connection ne explained that the Labour representative on the recent deputation really represented a movement to suppress Sunday labour, j meaning thereby the employment of no eer- Ùmts on Sundays. He would be prepared to PROSECUTE ANYONE WHO EM- PLOYED AN ASSISTANT on the Sabbath, but it was not fair to put into operation a part of the Act and not the whole of it. Mr. J. Lewis said he Nvas a Sabbatarian from has youngest days, and though it was advisable to take things as they are it was the more admirable to try and improve things. Years ago things were better on the Sabbath than to-day. Apart from the religious side Sunday was of the highest value. What about the inspectors? Were they inspecting the food on Sunday? And if not was there any guarantee people were getting proper food? And with shops open- ing did thcv relish drapers and others fol- lowing suit? If he had his way he would stop golfers and motorists on Sundays, and he would stop doctors—they would per- haps have fewer people dying (laughter)— and some preachers. Aid. Colwill spoke of the time when ships and engineering shops were loaoed and working on Sundays, BUT WHO STOPPED IT- religious influence? No; but public opin- ion. "Thou shalt keep holy the Sabbath Day," applied not only to the small shop- keepers but to manufacturers and everything else. Would capitalists advocate that and be satisfied with decreased dividends? Men were being wiped out by the capitalistic sys- tem, and unless the franchise was extended to women there would eoon be no men to vote. (Laughter.) Reference had been made to the widows. There were many who could only make both ends meet by what they were doing when the Act was enforced. One man who kept five sweet shops and one who kept six tobacco shops were fined, but they only paid one fine-the same as the poor widow. If lie had his way there would be no Sunday labour at all and some of those who kept people working on Sunday occu- pied the seats of the mighty on the Sabbath. Mr. F. Parker said the question was gcod government of the town, and he was pleased with Aid. Dan Jones s attitude. Foreigners—not in an unl;:md sense-4r" largely responsible for Sunday trading, and it was time something was done. He sug- gested every Sunday trader should bo asked to close in the good government of the town, and that the Mayor, chairman of the Watch Committee, and Chief Constable should see the old Sunday traders, and impress upon them the necessity of Sunday closing for good government. Mr. Evan Jones said he should like to1 sa y 62 bonafide grocers did not open on Sunday, but the most were general dealers. VERY FEW WIDOWS OPENED I T 1 -L. I on feunoays in izrcioi-e Miopia WOCle openea bv wives whose husbands worked all the week. Mr. 1. Gwvnne said there was a chance of improving Swansea, on a Sunday, and why shouldn't they ? To hear some of the sounds coming out of Oxford-Street shops at 8 and 8.30 on Sunday nights were not, cr-edit.ahle. In the upper part of the town the widow was far better off under the oid conditions than she was to-dav. The Chief Constable, in reply to the Mayor, said the licensed refreshment houses were the chief offenders The Mayor said he was not in favour of subsidising wealthy men who made capital when the Act was enforced. It was not right to' make flesh of one and fowl of an- other previously the rich men did well, and the poor widow had to close. He agreed to. Ald. D. David's suggestion he approved of as I the best course. Aid. D. Davies's amendment was carried I by 17 votes to 14. The voting was as fol- I j lows :— For (17): The Mayor, Aldermen Colwill, I D. Davies, Merrells, Messrs. Clancy, Hem- mjngs, Holmes, L-ee, Mucdonnell, Molyneux, L. Mor gan, Powlesland, Pretheroe, Rich- ards. Sinclair, D. Williams and Wilson. Against (14) Aldermen Devonald, B. Jones, D. JonM. TuMon, Messrs. D. J. P. -Joiie-,4. TAittijii, ? \lessrq. D. J. I E\an Jones, j. ]?lo-d, Matthews, ard Miller. Mr. F. Parker was neutral A FURTHER AMENDMENT I-A F'URTH-F',R AAIE'D?%IE'T I I Mr. Powlesland moved a further amendment that lfo further action be taken, and said that it was waste of time to defer the matter, as every member knew the position. Very often open shops militated against rowdyism in the streets. The real fact was that they wanted to he compulsorily driven into I the churches and chapels. (Cries of « No, no.") Ald. David Davies opposed, and said j that he thought his amendment offered some means of improvement. With re- gard to some sneering remarks by Mr. Tutton (discrediting a statement that 20,000 newspapers were sold in Swansea on Sundays) Mr. Davies said that he had not spoken without knowing the facts, but Mr. Tutton evolved conclusions with- out the slightest attempt at knowledge. One newsagent alone in Swansea received every Sunday 11,000 papers. Mr. ])(1. Williams said that Mr. Ivor Gwynne had stated that he was shocked when he passed up High-street and Ox- ford-street, but they were the very shops that the Council could not touch. Eventually ?tr. Powlesland withdrew his amendment, and the matter therefore stands deferred.

DREAD OF THE NIGHT. Ii ————— SWANSEA SKIPPERS' I STORY. THE SALVING OF THE LUDWIG GROEDELø- A Post" reporter had an oppor- tunity on Thursday of chatting with Ca.pt. Fletcher, of the trawler Picton Castle, who&s wonderful towing of the Ludwig Groedel from Cape Finist.-erre to Falmouth has already been recorded in these columns. Captain Fletcher—a typical son of the sea —told the reporter- that he had by no means recovered from the effects of his recent oidc,al. I have a great deal of difficulty in obtaining sufficient rest, and the crew are suffering in the same, way," he said. You had no sleep between Friday and Monday?" remarked the interviewer. Sleep!" he retorted; I was practi- cally FETTERED TO THE WHEEL I and the chart-house all the time. No one can realise the awful experiences we have been through except ourselves. The night- I Capt. Fletcher. time was a period of awful dread. We were | running through a heavy gak. and there was always tlia danger of the great ship that was looming in the darkness behind us running us down. It she once bore on us or overrun us, she would have dragged our little steamer underneath like a cork. We PRAYED FOR THE DAYLIGHT, !id we were very glad also to sight the English coast. It is a remarkable coinci- dence that only the Friday morning I hap- pened to remark to the mate, We are off Cape Finisterre izc-ép a good look-out for the lame duclis,' a!jd in glancing round to the leeward I sighted an object which after- wards transpired to be the Ludwig Groedel. That was about eleven o'clock, and about three o'clock we had her in tow." Captain Fletcher added that when he got off Falmouth, a large number of tugs sought to relieve him of his charge, but he refused, although they re duced their offers from JB60 to Lio. The value of the salvage is a matter of speculation, and the underwriters have the affair in hanrJ. IZAAK WALTON LOSES HEP "TOW." A Lloyd s message statoz that the swan- sea, trawler Izaak Walton has arrived at Queenstown and reports that the Dutch ta-nk steamer Rotterdam is south-east of 6 rock and drifting in an easterly di- j rection. A Government tug has gone to render as- I sistance.
I WHO'S THE PRIN- BESS ? AMAZING CASE. AINIAZING CASE. LONDON SOCIETY SENSATION. I At the Westminster Police Court on Thursday James Henry Maur, alias Ernest no occupation, living at Diyaen Chambers, Oxford-street, was again charged on remand with demanding money with menaces from Josephine Princess of Thurn and Taxis. The allegation was that the prisoner, being introduced to the Princess, induced her to accept him as a friend, and that he subse- quently, under the assumed name of Eventt, I demanded money frum her. Mr. Maurice Barrett prosecuted, and Mr. Francis Humi>h;rey^ defended. Mr. Wild, K. C., watched the case on behalf of a third, party. The court was thronged, and the projweutrix, stylishly dressed in blue, wa-, accompanied by several lady friends. Replying to the observations ofcouns-el, Mr. Ba,rrett said that the client fcr whom Nljr. Wild appeared claimed to be the Princess of Thurn and Taxis, tnd -th.t LITIGATION AS TO THE TITLE n I WM prooeodi oat ween tlie two ladies, tie (Mr. Barrett) in opening last week described the prosecutrix as Josephine, Princess of Thurn and Taxis." Mr. Wild replied that his client resided at Hampetead aaid on the date of the hear- ing the Princess was with her' husband in Switzerland The case had received great publicity in the English and American newspapers, and It. was due to the honour of the lady to staite that she had nothing | to do with these proceedings.
INHABITANT OF MARS! SOMETHING LIKE ONE AT THE POLICE COURT. A queer triangular object of wood and iron—resembling the tripod masts of a Dreadnought, a gipsy's cooking apparatus, or an inhabitant of Mars, as illustrated in "The War of the World S"-re po.ed in an ante-room at the Swansea Police Court on Thursday. It figured in a charge (in which Mr IT--irold King, assistant solicitor to Swansea Corpora- tion, 'prosecuted) brought against John Warner of having an unjust weighing ma- chine and a false and unjust weight. Inspector Hiscocks gave evidence in what the Bench described as a very bad case, and deposed that he found the weight of the old curiosity over 71bs. out of balance; and a loose piece of lead-filled tube, a loose piece of iron. a 71b. weight tied on with tape, and a 561b. weight 4ozs. light, were other "pro- perties" that were alluded to. | Defendant was lined 40s. in each case.
Crushing. I The tale is told of one of our leading actor-managers. He had snatched an "hour from the cares of management to enjoy a little of the welcome sunshine one morning last week. His peaceful stroll was inter- rnpted. A wild-eyed acquaintance—a hope- ful playwright—rnshed up to him in a state of intense excitement. "HaYo you heard of my misfortune?" he wailed. "No," said the great man sympathisingly, "not a loss in the family, I trust?" "Worse," sobbed the playwright, "my four-year-old son got hold of my new play and tore it to pieces." "Didn't know the child could read," said the actor-manager—and continued his stroU. .—("Daily Alirror."I

VISITORS SCORE FIRST. SWANS V. ABER- TiLLERY. SOUTHERN LEAGUE GAME AT VETCH FIELD. Far the tirst time this season the Swans Plat Abertillcry at the Vetch Field on Thursday afternoon under Southern League auspices. The visitors haw, rl1!3Id;e an excel- lent impression in their first season in the Second Division, a.nd they were expected to make the Swans go all the way to obtain the two points. The homesters Viad. a strong team out. Anderson, who was so successful as centre forward last Saturday, was given another triai in tha,t position, and --Nlayo was tried at inside left. Bassett ■was selected as centre half, but, unfortun- ately, lie had a painful boil on his leg, and Hamilton, therefore, came into the team. The teams were— SWA-NSEA TOWN.—Goal. Fisihefr; backs, Cleverley and Sutharland halves, Williams, Hamilton and Cubbea'ley; for- wards, Messer, Coleman, Anderson, Mayo and Greer. ABERTILLERY.—Goal. Huret; .backs, Adams. Bullen; halves, Langster, Jordan and Flock; forwards, Bridgett, Proeser, Ratoliffe, Griffiths, Baddeley. Referee: J. G. Havard (Aberdare). Lines- men Mie-ssrs. C. J. Morgan (R-hymney), and E. C. Gaccon (Trefarris). The rain had transformed the ground into something approaching a quagmire, especi- ally on the grand stand side. There was a, prospect of the gate being very small. The visitors- were not at full strength and in- cluded three ressrver;. VISITORS OPEN SCORING. lhere was scarcely a thousand present, the., Sw- nsea Kicked off against the freeze. The home- sters commenced prettily, and passed from v-ing to wing. Messer "sent over the bar with a first time shot. Anderson got away from a goal kick, but his transfer to Messer I was intercepted by Flook. Nice play on the right saw Anderson send out wide to Greer, and he, centreing, enabled the centre for- ward to trap again, but he was ruled off- side before he could shoot. Mayo showed fine form at inside left, and his passing with Greer ended in him securing a good position. Lot the ball stuck in the mud. Capital work by Anderson left Mayo superbly placed, but Adams paved. The visitors worked up the held for the first time by long punting, and with a centre in the goal- mouth came an unfortunate misunderstand- ing between Cleverley and Fisher, which enabled Pressor to dash up and score the first goal for Abertiileiy. The score was wholly undeserved on the Tun of play. Stung by the reverse the Swans kept up the pressure. The eondi- tions were all against good football. Adams and Bullen were a capable pair of backs. Hamilton came awav near the mark with a long drive, and the next moment Hurst imt managed to clear from a centre bv Greer. The visiting forwards played the T.ght game in slinging the ball about, and Sutherland did good work in pulling them up. Mayo was going throne1 h superblv when he was fouled, and the referee awarded a penalty. Greer took the kick, but Hurst, the goalIe. brought off a fine save at the expense of a corner. From the flag kick )t looked as if Coleman had gcaled, but to the general astcjnsnment the referee did rot allow the scow. THE SWANS EQUALISE I The visitors goalie was certainly keeping his charge well, and saved a certain ooal from a shot by Anderson. The visitors were playing good football, and their defence was sound. Sutherland was badly winded in st-oppillg an Abertillerv rush, and the game was delav-oo. The Swans were missing v/ns deinyed. The S'wan.s wprp missing chances, and once when Hamilton beat a rising ball down at the goal-mouth there was no one there to take his pass, and a good chance went astray. A couple of corners Were luckily cleared ,by the visitors, who were outclassed at this stage. A goal scon came to the Swans. Mayo, with suburb dribbling, put Anderson in possession with an open goal in front of him. The centre- forward made no mistake in boating Hurst with a shot that went into the corner of the net. The Swans took the lead after a per- feet movement, initiated by Anderson. He > placed Coleman nicely, and the inside-light with a great phot beat Hurst. Coleman made a brilliant clearing dribble on the restart, and Messer narrowly missed a fter clever placing by Cubberley. The interval came with Swansea leading by a ccal. HALF-TIME SCORE I SWANSEA—2 goals. I ABERTILLERY-l goal I SECOND HALF. I A feature of the hirst half was the superb (goal-keeping of Hurst and the brilliance of Mayo and Coleman, the home inside men. On the resumption play was very even foir lcil,g t i riie, .1,1, d a?L. ],-2111 long time, and at length., Messer, receiv- ing from Coleman, had liaird lines with a fast, rising shot Then Anderson had hard hick in sendin- to the wrong side of the upright. AbertilLery followed this up by an attack whirh culminated, in Fishm- SRT. oil his knees. Hurst brought off a bril- bamt siave with a deceptive back flip. It ferried odds on a goal and Anderson grazed t'lle cross-bar after receiving from Mayo. The Swans' third goal came after an ex- eitilig melee.

ARE THEY NEEDED P I -o ———— SWANSEA'S SUNDAY SHOPS. KEEN DISCUSSION AT COUNCIL. WATCH COMMITTEE TO MAKE INQUIRY. IAt Swansea Town Council on Wednesday,, the Town Clerk read a letter from the Eben- ezer Congregational Church expressing sor- row at the growing tendency towards Sun- day trading, and appealing to the Council to put legislation into lorce to prevent same. Argyle Chapel members also called atten- tion to the question of Sunday trading and asked them to end same by putting, into force their powers. Ald. D. Jones (chairman of the Watch Committee) said personally he hoped the Council would revert to the position they were in in 1909 or 1910. Unfortunately at that time there was a proposal to extend the principle, and when it came before the Council it was defeated, and so the whole thing fell through. Last Sunday in Swansea 318 chops were open, and going round the streets no one could isav many of the places were a necessity, icecream shops and so on. Aid. Merrells You can't close them. Mr. Molyneux asked for the proportion of licensed refreshment houses that were opened? The Chief Constable said he had not got that information. Aid. Dan Jones gave the list of shops opened as follows:—Sweets, 161; refresh- ments, 62 grocers, 62 greengrocers, 32 butchers, 4; bakers, 2; newsagents, 546 to- bacconists, 18; general dealers, 22; dairies, 7; hairdressers, 1; outfitter, 1; studio (opened Sunday week but closed last Sun- day. Mr. Wilson: How many persons were employed in those 398 shops? Aid. Dan Jones said he could not say. THE UNFAIRNESS OF IT. Mr. Laugharne Morgan said that the un- fairness about the proceedings when the old Act was attempted to be put in force was that only the small traders, and especially widows, suffered, whilst those who could afford to pay the fines did really a big trade. Aid. Tutton said he did not agree with that and moved an addition to the minutes to the effect that the old Lord's Day Obfier- vanco Act be put. in operation for the pur- pose of prohibiting Sunday trading. He had heard of the "poor widows" before. He had met some of them. (Laugnter.) Un- less Sunday trading was stoppexl the thing would grow and one trade would be started after another. Mr. Lloyd seconded. Everyone now regretted what then hap- pened. Aid. Merrells: Not everyone. Ald. Ben Jones said it did not speak well of the town to have so many shops open. He had leased a shop in Wind-street but he did not know a then that his lessee was going to open on Sunday, and if that tenant came to him and said he suffered by Sunday closing he would immediately cancel the lea.s,e.. COMPULSORY CHURCH ATTEND- ] I I I Mr. D. VVnhajns aspect it oiie Act cid not provide each one should attend church? The Town Clerk l' think it does. Mr. D. Matthews You don't object to attending a place of worship once every Sunday surely. Mr. D. Williams said if they were putting in force the Act let thorn do so. Ald. Ben Jones supported, and said it was their duty to do all they could to suppress Sunday labour. H-3 remembered the time when the newspapers were brought up and the previous state cf things fell throug-'i. Ald. Dd. Davies moved that the matter be referred back to the Watch Committee with instractions to make further investiga- tion to ascertain the character of the shops, the number of persons employed, and the extent to which the shops served a. useful purpose, if any, or were objectionable. Com- parison with the state of things a few years ago and to-day disclosed in the ifgures given a bit,, difference in the number. of shops open to-day. But there were many s hops opeai 1U the days when a part of the Act was enforced, and which were in addition to the t-en frequently quoted as open. And those shops were iiaensed refreshment room.: which were not years ago counted, ar? ihc closing of which could not be enforrt?. L?: the Council exhaust all their powers, and after all they could only prosecute a certain number, for there would be shops open in spite of everything. Mr. Davies spoke of
£ 8,000 LOST. PONTARDAWE DIS- PUTE. MEN DECIDE TO RETURN TO WORK. The dispute at Messrs. Gilbertson's Works, Pontardawe, in the galvanising de- partment, has been ended, and the men will resume work as early as possible. The decision was come to at the meeting held on Wednesday night at the Victoria Hotel, Pontardawe. The men came out a month ago over a question of seniority, and 14 mills were ren- I acred idle. together with a. thousand men. At the meeting on Wednesday night a letter was received from the company in- timating that they adhered to the conditions laid down at the Swansea conference on Saturday, which was to the effect that the men should resume operations, immediately. The meeting lasted several hours, and eventually it was decided by a majority to return to work. It is estimated that something like L2,000 weekly has been lost in wag es whilst the strike was on. The Dockers' Union Executive ordered the mien to resume work, and on Saturday at a conference held a.t Swansea 15 dele- gates of the men and two of the Dockers' Union officials agreed to recommend the men to ie,-tuine work and utilise the machinery off the board to adjust the disputes over which the strike took place. A meeting of the men on Monday did not accept this recommendation of their Union officials and d,e,lega-t-os. They have now changed their minds and. decided to go back.
