'.1 Resignation of Sir W. T. Lewis. n Sir William Thomas Lewis has written to Mr. W. Gascoyne Dalziel, secretary of the Monmouthshire and South Wales Coalowners' Association, resigning his position as chairman of the sliding-scale committee, and expressing a desire to withdraw altogether from the association. The letter was read to the members at their meeting on Monday, and was received with amazement. There wag a unanimous desire on the part of the members present that he should be asked to re-consider his decision, and a resolution was passed instructing Mr. Dalziel to write to him to that effect. It is only a few weeks ago that the Coal- owners' Association expressed their appreciation of Sir W. T. Lewis's services by presenting him with an address in which they bore testimony to the service he had rendered by introducing into the district the principle of the sliding-scale for regulating wages. This system was the means of averting any serious stoppage of work for 23 years—a period quite unexampled in any other industry in the kingdom. For twenty years feir W llllam has acted as- chairman of the joint- committee of employers and workmen, and throughout, according to the address, he has always had the confidence, approval, and support of his colleagues. .1 v*5
