TRISVISARAN. I With sincere regret I announce the death I of Mr. Charles Morgan, Parklewis, which sad event took place on Monday of last week, at the age of 68 years. The deceased was most highly estreemed and respited. The family are the objects of deep and widespread sym- pathy. Mr Morgan was a most faithful mem- ber of Llandurry Church. The interment took place on Thursday at Llandurry, the Rev. Hugh Rees, B.A. ,oiffciating. Among those present were Mr Anthony, Mr Stephens (Kid- welly), Mr. Beynon (Aberystwyth University), etc. -0- On Friday last Mr. Thomas Williams, Pen- liwyn-isaf Farm, passed away at the age of 77 years. Mr. Williams, who was highly es- teemed in the neighbourhood, had been as- sistant overseer for the parish of Pembrey. The interment took place on Tuesday at Peru- brey Church. -0- — o — l MINERS' EIGHT HOURS ACT. I Mr. W. Abraham, M.P. the men's leader, said: "The position is almost hopeless, but while the door of negotiation its open there is hope. A stoppage would involve 200,000 miliars and thousands of others. I I d? say that peace must be preserved, and —o— lic- preserv(,.(I all(! that every possible factor in conciliation and arbitration must be called into force. The interests of the community are involved, nd a way out lias to be found. I P, 'Ilas to I)e i J STRIKES AND LOCK-OUTS. I Workmen are said to strike, that is, to strike work, when a number of them agree together to cease working on a certain tiay for certain employers, in order to compel these employers j to pay them better wages, or in some way to yield to their demands. When one or more employers suddenly dismiss their workpeople altogether, in order to compel them to take lower wages, or agree to some alteration of work, it is called a lock-out, and a' lock-out is nearly the same as a strike of the em- ployers. --Jevons. -0- Mr. J. Pointer, M.P., said in the House of Commons on June 16th that the working of overtime was responsible for a great deal of unemployed labour, and no system of labour: exchanges could be successful unless an at- tempt was made to mitigate that. evil. Ho had known a large shop in which 300 men, by working overtime, prevented the employ- ment of an additional 75 men for each work- ing day during live or six years. t From July 15th to 25th, lodger claims for Parliamentary votes must be renewed. In a report UpOE a vi?r to H)e Westphalian Coalfield bv Or. J. H. H<)[<?ne. Mr. Henrv Hall, H.8.J.M., and Mr. W. N. Atkinson, the South Wales superintending mine inspector, it is pointed out, that bv the mining regula- tions every colliery has to provide a proper building witli suitable arrangements toy all the men employed underground to change their clothes going to and coming from ¡ work, and such, a sight as a miner covered with coal dust, and black from head to foot, is never to be iseon outside a colliery in ¡ Westphalia. Every colliery is plentifully sup- plied with, baths and hot water for the use of í the mine officials, visitors, mine inspectors, j etc., clean over-alls being provided for visi- tors. "At very few English collieries." we are told, "is such a thing as a bath to be had either for colliers or for anyone else, and we heartily commend, the more cleanly and com- fortable German arrangements to the atten- tion of colliery owners at home." —&— Gwynfe declared at ;he Eisteddfod that the purest Welsh of the day was to be found in Carmarthenshire in South Wales, and Merion- ethshire: in North Wales. -0- France and Germany have in the last- tens years spent. approximately the same sums of money on their respect ive navies. The two countries have in ihi>s period exactly changed their places as nava-l powers. Germany has come up from fourth, to second, and France lias sunk from second to fourth.
