I A6 was anucrpiitcd, the unpiave Con- j epilation Board e-kowcd ilt uiuai wisdom, and at the joint meeting of the represen- < UnheN oi employers and workpeople, at j bivanseu Metal iischange, on Monday, found a way out ox tile diilicult situation cheated uy the demands and ofiera sub- mitted a boat ten uays previously. The give and lake methods adopted j resulted in another triumph ior concilia-: tory methods, and all is well. It was fcoinewkdt mysUiying at the close of tlie-i procvHxliags to hear one of the workman's representatives, wliiut expressing satis- factlon. SdÜe-d-the more you earn, the leas you get and yet, this was an instance of putting the crux of the whole I matter in a nutshell. But to come to details. The Board met, under the presidency of Mr. W. Gib- Ivtts (chairman of the Welsh Plate and fcJicet Manufacturers' Association), sup- ported by Mr. F. W. GiYbertson (vice- precident), and a large number of em- I ployers. The men were represented by Messrs. Ben Tillett. M.P., Tom Griffiths. M.P., officials of the various Unions, and I a considerable number of delegates. As a "qiiel to the ur? IDhDg held la3t Friday week, at which the original demand of the men was put forward, and I the employers put in a counter-proposal, this adjourned meeting was important. It j vas to discuss and d.al with the e1n-1 ployers' counter-proposal that the wage bonus be increased and paid on the prin- ciple adopted by the Steel Works Concili- j i .HoD .Board. whereby the i?crea?e of war j bcnus is ba?&d en the pcrc?nta?e system. The men's committee submitted counter- proposals bated on that principle, and the employers retired to consider it. On re- suming an amended list en the saire basin was submitted by the employers showing ( varying increases up to 29 per cent., and ) this was accepted by the men. I < AGREED PERCENTAGES. I These earning up to 20s. and paid 80 per 1 cent. war bonujs formerly will now be paid I 100 per cent, war bonus. Those earning 20s. Id. to 30s. and paid 9) per cent, will now receive 115 per cent. Those earning 30s. Id. up to tXte. will i jeaeive 114 per cent., subject to a drop I of one per cent. on every shilling; and ] j from 60s. upward a drop, relatively, of ¡ per cent, on each shilling. I GRADUATED INCREASES. I t, Thus it will be seen that the new list, ,wlkich becomes operative on Monday next, Actually puts into concrete shape the Jttrae description gtiren above-" The more "they earn, the leas the men will get in t extn bonuses In other words the per- f oeutago increase, which seems complicated '• *«> those outside the mysteries of tinplate waking, will be in favour of the iower- «"l>aid men, but all get an increase, and, be- fyond thia, certain anomalies (by which, J%vhen a given number of boxes were j Worked, a man stood to lose mo?y by an H f additional output up to a given point) |i 1 ?Mve now bf?en remDvoo. i A committee was appointed to deal with | f | I the conditioDa of the process men, such ? f &s picklers and annealers, and another to Dóider conditions of miUmen. I 1 I On the hours question, the committee's j | 1 »aport, which we last week quoted, giving -17-iiourli week to day shift men and an j re.ight.hour shift to those who work day t and night,alternately, was approved of, and will become operative on the 3rd of March. It is an important ooucessidn to I ..? the men's demands. J NIGHT MEN'S POSITION. I To make it clear let me explain that the I eight-hour shifts combined will not mean, as-some of the general readers might sup- ? pose, a 48-hours week to night men. First I $ of all. while the day men have fixed meal times, which, of course, they are not paid for. the night workers have to snatch a half hour for a meal when convenient, and they get their wages paid for the time occupied at that meal Then. also, the feet that the night worke get paid six ni?hte* wagea for working five &hifta must be borne in mind.
THE "Q" SHIP. The Q or mystery ship, Hyderabad,' which has been lying in the North Dock Basin, Swamoa, since Saturday, has not been attended by the large number of people that it was anticipated would have visited her. The unfavourable weather in a large measure has been accountable for this, but it is expected that to-day the, attendance will be very large. The Hyd- erabad leaves Swansea sometime on Wed- nesday morning.

YOU MUST HAVE STEADY NERVES i Watch ycur General Health and see how I your Nerves arc Strengthened. However W6 may admire courage, it is ¡ certain that very often bodily health has I much to do with it. Those whose nerves are shattered by illness, or the impoverish- ment of their blood, cannot be blamed ii I they do not show the samp, bravery as a pewson brimming over with full-blooded I health. They deserve sympathy, not blame. Their suil-^rings are greater than I their fltult. Steady, well-toned nerves are a matter j of health, and to have nerves in this stets saves greui suffering—of mind, as well as I body. People who are startliXl by any I sudden noise, jarred by the rattle of j "J.. ffi 1 etreet traffic or factory, irrdtxible in tem- per, easily alarmed. oflÆn tormented by I jicaidache and neuralgia, require a nerve tonic that will feed the blood and Bo in- I vigorate the nerves. I I only wish," said Mrs. Roberts, of 18, Naseby ldaoe, Jieaton Park, llanch^steT, to a representative, Recently4 that I had taken 1.)r. N-V, ill;laws' pink pills years ago, for I should have been spared much bufi.'i'ing. From girlhood I had suffered very much from anaemia, and a few years ago iny health became very bad. I scarcely had strength to get about, I had no appe- titf, and food lay like lead on my chest. C'ruel headaches bothered me day after doy. My nerves went all wrong, and do-rlf, nights 1 scarcely cloae d my eyes at all; I I was terrified of the darkiK-«s and of something dreadful happening. My limbf. ached with weariness, and my back was never free from a dull, aching; misery. I had good medical advice, but medi- cine did me very little good. My blood was 11; thin almost as water. Weaker and weaker I grew, until I began to think I would never be better again. Tor eighteen months I suffered lika this. Then my husband suggested that I should give Dr. Williams' pink pills a trial, and my one regret is that I did not take tlria splendid medicine years ago. Before I had quite finished thD first box of pills my appetite was better. Later, my strength began to return, and I lost the* terrible headaches- Day by day I improved, until I was able to I pay I was in perfect healuii, and that this I perfect health ivas due to Dr. Williams' pink pills. I can never voice my gratitude suf- ficielitly," concluded Mrs. Boberts, and I am ever glad of this oppon lHUty of let- ting other sufferers know of my splendid j cure." ) Dr. Williams' pink pills for pale people have often restored men and women who are mere nervous wrecks to calm, strong workers. If yocr nerves are not all they should be, obtain a supply of Dr. Williams' pink pills locally. With Dr. Williams' name they will be genuine: and write a postcard for a very helpful book, The Nerves and Their Needs," to Post Dept., '6. Eolborn Viaduct, London, E.C.1.

DEMOBILISATION, i I I HOW TO ADDRESS YOUR: APPLICATION MILLS WAITING FOB MEN ) In order to avoid any misunderstanding I on the part of employers, it is nectary to make it quite clear that their applica- tions ahoulci only be addressed to the Appointmeaits Branch of the Ministry of I Labour in causes where they desire the ] lease of officers and also of men of bUper- 1 ior educational attainments. Ali applita- tions by employers fo.r men other than the ( abm'6 should 00 addrc?&d to ti? Local ￼ Advisory Committee oonn('(;t with their nearest Employment Exchange. I It is important that these directions for I procedure should be tstrictly adhered to, as any misdirection of applications for re- lease of men will inevitably lead to some delay in the demobilisation of euch men. j THE TINPLATERS. I A joint meeting of employers, workmen, and prominent officials was held on Mon- day to consider the position of tinplate workmen. We are informed that appli- cation was made maJly weeks ago for the I release of over 1,5vù men, but up to yes- terday very few had been demobilised. The po-sition at present is that there is plenty of steel bars, and employers tire fully booked with orders, whilst mills are standing idle because of the scarcity of hands. Employers take a serious view of the situation, knowing full well that the de- pleted neutral markets will be captured by American makers unless they can be immediately supplied by the Welsh makers. Urgent appeals were again made yesterday for the immediate release of men.

THINGS THAT MATTER. The public have cause for gratification in the fftot that some of our business housos have looked well ahead in the matter of buying. Goods bought 12 or IS months ago are now shown at remarkably low prices compared with present day values. This policy requires capital and judgment. There is no doubc but what the public are the gainers where this policy Jias been carried out. The values shown at tie eetabLishroent oi Messrs. Davi. and Short, especially in their AJhirt and pyjama department, is realty startling. One look at their eate win- dows will convince the most sceptical I that in the saving of money this firm is well to the front in giving sterling value for cash.

Four times he has been men- tioned in despatches. At the time of his demobilisation he was in command of an English battalion- The war with Ger- manv was not his first experience of fighting, for he served with distinction throughout ti^ South African campaign.
