_0 FOREST OF DEAN COLLIERS r AND THE CROWN. On Wednesday, at noon, a meeting of delegates of the Forest of Dean Freeminers' Protection Society was held at the Speech House, Mr Sydney Elsome, chairman of the committee, presiding. An amount of routine business was transacted, including the reading of rep rts from the 15 lodges which h ive been formed for the purpose of a joint representation of miners and their rights, at the hearing of the question, which will come on before a royal commission recently promised by the Crown. It was elicited that there are a total of about 900 miners registered as free miners, and these with others not yet qualified have established a protection society. It was unanimously agreed to pay 3d each per month to a fund, which will be used in obtaining evidence to lay before the commissioners, urging that it is through no fault of themselves that the present trade depression exists, as is alleged by the galees who possess seams of coal either in work, worked out, or not yet won. With regard to the presentation of the com- mission, a resolution, moved by Mr Amos Williams, seconded by William Aston, and carried, "That a letter be forwarded to the Prime Minister urging the claims of the foresters to a 11, fair proportion of the number composing the commission, and also that one of them should be working free miner," was carried unanimously. It was also decided to proceed forthwith in the col- lection of evidence for the defence, to be sub- mitted when the commissioners are appointed. The meeting also expressed their opinion upon the Seats Bill, and determined to support no candi- date, of whatever politics, who would not pledge himself to defend in Parliament the existing rights and privileges of the Foresters of Dean.
