• ABERGWYNFI. Arrangements have been made for re- opening of the Great Western Colliery, t)erg wvnfit, which has be/n close since December 18, 1908. This colliery formerly belonged to the Great Western Railway Co., who closed it on the ground that it did not pay. A-few years ago it was acquired by the OcSC_n Coal Company, but remained closed bccause of the failure of t'he new owners and the workmen to come to an understanding with regard to a price list. The matter was recently referred by the Conciliation Board to Mr. Evan Williams. representing the coaltvwners, and Mr..W. Brace. M.P., representing the Miners' Federation and a price list was provision- ally agreed npou between them subject to the approval cf the workmen. Mr. Vernon HarUhorn, miners* agent, reported upon the new price list at a meeting of the workmen held at Aber- gwynfi on Saturday night and the list wa" approved. The colliery will be re-opened in the first week of the new year. At the time- the pit was closed in 1908 it was employing flnn men. Probably more than that number of workmen will be required when the col- liery is re-opened, as it is understood to oo the intention of the Ocean Coal Company to considerably develop the workings. The stoppage of the pti was a serious blow to Abergwynfi, causing a jrreat deal of destitution, as it was a long time be- fore the majority of the workmen obtained employment in other collieries. Aber- gwynfi may now look forward to a pros- perous new year. s^—
