OPERATIVE STONE MASONS. I I Pontypridd Lodge. I TO THE EDITOH OF THE "SOUTH WALES ECHO." I SIR,—Permit me to reply to the report of the Master Builders' Association held on Saturday last and reported through the columns of last evening's Echo. The masters say in their resolu- tion that they do not intend to sign any rules connected with our society. How ridiculous to pass such a resolution, knowing full well that they signed them in May, 1893, and all that we require at present is for them to work to them. We feel as a body of men that we are quite justi- fied in adhering to our rules and, to give satis- faction to the public, we may submit that the majority of the builders of our town are not in the association and arc quite satisfied with the present rules and are proceeding with their work, and wa may confidently say that they have jobs that will employ three-fourths of our members. As already published, wo may say for informa.tion that we have only 30 men on the strike roll, the remaining number are all working, a total number of about 300 and those that are working are ably sup- porting those on strike, and remunerate them with very near full wages. We are bound to notice advertisements of master builders— "Wanted, 40 to 50 non-Society men." Have they work for them ? Wo say that theta is only one builder belonging to the association that has any work worth mentioning, and he has freely admitted through the Press that he has handed over tha jobs that he has in construction, viz., the Tonyrefail Board Schools and new Library at Ystrad to the committees but we maintain to say that our statement is correct, and hope that mfisons will not be deluded. Then, with such statements we contend that such action on tho part of the master builders is very absurd, striving to cause a dispute 111 the town where the chief contractors are satisfied with our ruleR.-I am, &e., I JOHN HOOPER, I I Secretary Pontypridd Lod-e O.S.
