THE COLLIERS' WAGE REDUCTION. Once more the colliers of South Wales and Monmouthshire have submitted to a reduction of 10 per cent, in their wago rates. And, what is more, they have yielded to the demand of the employers in the most complete and uncompro- mising way, for the reduction, as it has now been agreed tu, included the dissolution of the Con- ciliation Board, so that next week if they think proper the employers, who are now all poworful in the strength of their own union and the scheme of anything like organisation among the men, may give notice for the sacrifice of an- other 20 per cent, in wages. In comparing present circumstances with the slate of the case, say a little more than a year ago, when viyidly descriptive articles of thfl distress in South Wales wereappearing in the Loiwlon daily newspapers, we are now incomparably worse off, and we may almost venture to say that if this is to go on, tho next inquiry will not be the special correspondent of a daily newspaper but a Royal Commission. To thoroughly appreciate what was done last Monday, by the steam coal delegates at Merthyr, when they agreed to accept the reduction, it will be necessary to take a rapid glance at the last strike and what has since occurred. It will be remembered that on May 1st., 1875, tho general strike and lock-out ended after an ex- istence of something like live month? The men struck against a proposed drop of 10 per ce-it but they returned at a reduction of I2g per cent, on condition that thu employers wotltd agree to establish with them a Board of Con- ciliation with a sliding scale of wages and a .tixed minimum. his Board, alter'spending some montns m airiving at a basis upon which to found this scale, at last agreed on terms which in many instances still further reduced the men —say 2.j per cent all round. After a consider- able amount of grumbling this total sacrifice —which with the 12 J per cent, already mentioned, amounted to 15 per cent—was agreed to. But it involved a wise proviso. Under the terms upon which the ( onciliation Board existed no reduction beyond the mi imum could be made—thus the minimum was admitted by both masters and men to represent the lowest wages on which the men could be supposed to ex.iöt -while the selling prices were considered every six months, with a view to giving the men every chance of advancement. Behind this > barrier, provided by common seuce and fair play, the industry progressed for something like three years, 1875-8. But the employers pursued a wrong policy" ow the markets of the world. Although they could undersell every other coal producing district in England or Scotland, in proof of which we have the fact that the outputs have been on the increase, they persistently undersold each other to the general detriment of the whole trade. Consequently last year they had to ask the men to concede them another 5 per cent., which the latter, though legally tho employers were bound to keep at present rates for six months even after notice, nooly yielded. We were in doubt as to the wisdom of this course at the time, for wo were afraid it would open the door to further disregard of the integrity of the Sliding Scale. And we are sorry to say that this fear of ours has-been realised. Last December the employers asked the men to concede a still further 10 per cent., which the latter declined to do. The masters then gave six months notice of the dis- solution of the Conciliation Board, with an in- timation that they would enforce the reduction afterwards. On Monday last this notice ex- pired, the Board coa,ell to exist—and the men accepted the The question now is, first, what will be tho effect of the, drop on this locality and the country generally secondly, how long will it be before thu South Wales coalowners ask for a further concession ? Weregrettosaythat, locally, the reduction and the collapse of the Arbitration Hoard must have the worst possible results. In the aggregate the men are now 30 per cent, worse off than when they struck work in December 1874. 1 hey are, further. la per cent. poorer than they were at the time the masters themselves took part in fixing their minimum. Furthermore, as there is now no Arbitration Board, they are completely and en- tilely at the mercy of their employers. As to the country generally, although the men in Durham and South Yorkshire have through arbitration been preserved from reductions, the drastic influences of Welsh underselling will find them out, and once more the curse of over competition will breathe its malaria breath from its hotbed, South Wales. With regard to tho second consideration, wo hope none of our readers are possessed with the idea that wages cannot come much lower. Who would ever have dreamt of what has taken place ? The fact of the matter is simply thi., the reduction has al ready been discounted by the wages, in fact this was aunounced by our contemporary the South fVules Daily News of Monday last, which stated that the large buyers had already given notice that any drop gained from the men would have to be considered in the contracts We are afraid the employers' chief concern is not what the well can atfurd to lose, but what they, the employers, hope to screw out or them, and with an ever increasing trade at lessening prices and diminutive profits, this little garao promises to be carried on for some time yet. Under the circumstances we can hardly find it in our hearts to reproach the men, though they own their present position to their own folly. Tho tradesmen of this locality, too, are now learning that a properly conducted Trades Union is a blessing, not a curse, to a district like this. It was the union which gave the district the Conciliation Board, and Mr. Halliday and his confreres, in spite of all the calumnies heaped upon them by the selfish and the ignorant, when they brought about the establishment of that body, gave the district three years of com- parative peace. It was the lack of an union which caused the men to fritter away the six months notice now just expired, without taking- steps to ensure their Conciliation Board or to resist a reduction wheh wo have not the slightest hesitation in describing as infamous and pregnant of evil. The employers have retained their union, and on Saturday last, they could sit in conclave and listen to the heart- breaking appeals of the men, who said, truly enough, as most of our trademen could testify, that they were already short of the necessities of life But we are brought to this pass, and we must make the best of it. If the reduction had been submitted to open arbitration, it would never have been admitted. To obtain such fair inquiries in the future wo hope the men will try and rouse themselves, secureleaders in whom they can trust, who are not creatures of sus- picion, tale bearers and incompetent hypocrites and there may be a day when the mass of the South Wales colliers will be a power in the land, instead of being, as we fear they are looked upon now, a crowd of helpless starving wretches.
LOCAL NOTES. TWO ITEMS. To show how much the South Wales coal- owner is benefited by the slightest reduction in the items of cost, VIr D. Davies, M.P., of Ocean collieries, says that Id per ton carriage of his coal means a difference to him of £400 a year, although his pits are only a short distance from Cardiff. Thus if even half the 10 per cent re- duction obtained from the men went into the owners' pockets—but every farthing will be secured by the buyers! Mr Wales, II.M. In- spector, reports that during 1878 the ouput of coal for Glamorgan, Pembroke, Carmarthen, and Brecon, amounted to 12,000,000 tons. Pity this coal was placed on the markets without an ade- quate return to master or man! Notices to cease contracts have been issued by the Ebbw Vale Coal and Iron Company. It is expected that a reduction is iminent here. The company lost in all £ 80,000 last year and attribute this to the local conditions of trade and partly to the Abercarue explosion. THE C'WMAF 'N ACCIDENT. We are glad to say that our appeal on behalf of the six men who were killed at the above, place last week has not been in vain. Mr Shaw, heads the subscription list with E20 and Mr. Jenkins, the manager, with £ 5. A COLLIERY ON FIRE. Another fire broke out in the South pit, Plymouth, on Thursday night, last week, and is burning yet for aught we know. This is the same place in which fire broke out some months 8°"0. MERTHYR GUARDIANS. There was no business of much public interest transacted at the above board last Saturday. The tenders were passed however, and our readers will find our report of the prices some- what instructive.
Saral Jutellirjnu*. THE DOG Snow.—We would romind our readers that the entries for the Aberdare Dog, Poultry, Pigeon, and Cage Birds Show close on Saturday, the 5th inst. MEDICAL.—Mr Thomas William Scale, son of Mr Edward Watkin Scale, late pupil of Dr. Evan Jones, has passed the final examination at the Apothecaries' Hall, London, held on the 25th and 2oth ultimo, and has received the diploma to practise medicine. COLLIEY ENTERPRISE.— Messrs Shepherd & Co., of Cwmaman, have lately sunk a new pit, and found the coal desired. Within the last few days coal-winning has begun. At Werfa, also, a new pit is being sunk. The two-feet-six seam has been reached, and it is hoped that the larger seams will be reached in a short time. ABERDARE HIFLE COMPETITION.—On Satur- day afternoon last, at Glan Dare range, the Hth G.R.V., held their usual monthly com- petition for the Challenge Cup, presented by Capt. Howells and Capt. Phillips, when Sergt. John James was declared the winner, with a score of 71 points, jranges200, 500, andtiOO yards, 7 rounds at each range. The weather was very unfavourable for good shooting. THE limes considers that it is a remarkable tribute to the stability and soundness of our position as a manufacturing people that in the severest and most protracted industrial crisis the world has ever known we should continue to consume, within the four corners of the United Kingdom, and in our shipping trade together, more than a hundred and timteeu million tons of eOil I-a consumption exceeding the united production of all the other countries of Europe. It is not less remarkable that when Germany, France. America, and other nations are doing their utmost, not only to exclude us from their own, but to beat us in neutral markets, our coal exports should continue to increase as they have done during the past year. SCHOOL BOARD.—This Board met on Thurs- day, there being present Messrs 11. II. Rh}-s (chairman), D. P. Davies, D- Davies, J. Williams, J. Snape, Revs. E. W. Lloyd, and T. Jones. An implication was read from >t r Hodgson for a holiday during the time the schools would be closed. He was allowed from the 11th inst. till the oth August. The follow- ing report of the Schools Management Com- mittee was read and adopted ihe committee have examined and signed the schedule of salaries and other accounts, amounting to £ 407 2s. and recommended that the same be paid. The committee recommend that monitors when engaged by the Board be paid I the following salaries, viz., during first year of service, £2 per annum; during second year, £ 4. Recommendedthat tho summer holidays be In on Friday evening, July 11th, and that the schools be reopened on Monday evening, August llth, 1879. Recommended that leave of absence to Pupil and Ex-Pupil Teachers who intend sitting for tho scholarship examination, commencing on Wednesday next, the 8th inst. The Cummitke recommend the Board to con- sider the expediency of substituting at the Ponj wain School an Ex-Pupil Teacher qualified under article GO in lieu of the present certificated teacher, at a salary not exceeding £ f » per annum. The committoe having considered t lO question of commission due to the Superintend- ent of Schools up in government grants received for the year ended January ;ibt, 1879, recom- mend that the sum of £;)9 4s. (3d. bo now paid. The committee also recommend that the arrangement with respect to the Superin- tendent's commission shall bo determined and calculated as follows, viz., one and 1 one-half per cent. upon the aggregate amount of the Government grant accru- ing from day schools alone, together with a further one per cent, upon the grants of those schools which shall pass 87 per cent, of the children presented, and that this scale of pay- mcut continue in force till Jan. 31st, 1882. The other terms of the engagement, except as mentioned above, to remain as heretofore. In lien. of the commission upon the drawing grant. the Superintendent to receive the examination expenses allowed by the Science and Art De- partment. No commission to bo allowed on night school grants." The attendance officer presented his report, in which allusion was made to the refusal of the medical men of the neigh- bourhood to sign certificates iu cases of children being unable to attend school through illness A member remarked that they expected the Board to pay for signing such certificates. The Chairman said the board would not do so. It was a monstrous thing that medical men who received poundage from the parents should re- fuse to sign certificates, Poor people were now liable tc be summoned before the Police Court and put to extra expense on this account. The Superintendent of schools reported the iiijmber of children on the books last week as being 4195 present at all, 3429 in average attend- ance, 2791. Miss James was appointed mistress. of the Llwvdcoed school at a salary of 4:75. There was no other business of public interest. BOARD OF GUARDIANS.— ihe Merthyr Boards of Guardians met on Saturdav, Mr R ti. Rhvs presiding. The committee specially appointed now recommended the acceptance of the follow- ing tenders for the ensuing quarter: A berdare School: Flour (Reynolds and Alleu), 33s. per sack of 280lbs.; oatmeal (Irish), 35s., per sack bread 41b. loaf, 4|d.; third Cork butter, 8d.; 2 Canadian butter, lOd single Gloucester cheese, 5d.; bacon (Stratford cut), 3-jd.; American cheese 4d. per lb., Mr L.

Small binding coal, 6s. 3d. per ton large steam coal, 8s Gd bituminous through and through, 8s. 3d., Mr Jenkins. Milk, 2^d. per quart, Mr H. E David. The report of the committee was adopted—The out- door relief given during the week was as follows :—Aberdare, £7:3 lHs°8d; Gelligaer, £ 24 I 7s. 2d.; MerthyrUppor, £ 67 8s. 5d Merthyr Lower, £ 55 16s. 10d.; not-settled, 4:1 las.-total, 4:223 14s. Id. The chairman observed that tho rolief at Aberdare was going up very considerably to which Mr D. Davies replied that, from the jjbook, he observed that this increase was in tho relief givin in k.nd, and not that given ill money. Mr Middle, one of the medical officers, came before the board to explain why he bad recommended that a pauper named Patrick Croney should be given ad- ditional relief in consequence of suffering from a disease of the hip, owing to which he required better sustenance than he could obtain. The Chairman observed that if they were necessary for the man's welfare he should have these things. Ho did not object to uxtias except when he saw medical men endeavouring to supplement the relief given by that means.— The Master reported that there had been 11 admitted and 13 discharged, leaving in the house 264, against 228 in the corresponding week of last year. There had been 19 applica- tions, making 62 ordered in by the board on the previous Saturday, but only four came in dur- ing the week from that order. In the Indus- trial School were 123 children, a comparative increase- of 19, there being 77 children under industrial training. 11

P.C. James James stated that at ten minutes past 8, on tho morning in question, he saw the two defendants como into the yard at tiie back of the Com- mercial Inn. Isaac entered the house through the back door and ill four or five minutes Gay followed. In a short time he (witness) went in after then. James left but Gay he found turn- ing from the counter. The latter refused his name for some time, but at last gave it. Gay in defence, denied having had anything to drink and stated that he called for the purpose of informing the landlady that a flower-pot had fallen down on the porch above the front entrance. Isaac said he went in for a pint of beer but did not get it He was waiting for tho train, and it was a wet morning. The Bench said they did not believe their story now any more than they did last week. Isaac admitted that he had gone there for beer but said he did not get it. That did not mattei1, he was on the premises for that purpose, and was therefore liable. They were each fined ¡j;3 and costs, or seven days in default. SIMILAR OFFENCE. — Henry John and Eleazer Gravell weie charged with being at the Wayne's Arms, on the 15th ult, during illegal hours. Tho same constable said that at twenty minutes past 11, on Sunday morning, the 15th ult. he visited the "Wayno's Arms, entering through a back door, and in a back room found the two defendants. There was a pint vessel containing beer near Gravell on the window and another full of bec-r under the settle near John. Gravell said be was a lodger, and John sai.l he was from Oxford-street. The landlord had previously stated that both were from Ferndale. Gravell, in defence, said the pint of beer on the window did not belong to him, and that it had been 1 drawn since the previous night. John sta'el! that he had been invited to dinner there that i day. He never tasted the beer; the constable drunk out at it first. They were each fined 5s. and costs. ENDORSEMENT.—On tho application of Mr. Thos Phillips, tho license of the BuoLivè [1111, llirwain, was endorsed hon John Carrie to David Williams (builder.; i^cuooL BOALD CASES.Daniel Cochrane, of llirwain, was summoned for neglecting to cause his child to attend school regularly. Mr Gery, who prosecuted on behalf of tho Board, stated that the boy had passed liD standard and had onlv attended 31 times out of 113. Defendant Said his boy loft the house regularly to go to school, but ho supposed he was in the habit of mitching. He had called the attention of the polico constable to it. His Worship said a policeman had nothing to do with it. Defend- ant: If I wore to beat him, I should get pun shed myself. His Worship said no one could inter- fere with him for punishing his son properly. He was ordered to send his boy to the ilirwain Schools and to pay 4s. (ill. costs. Evan Davies, collier, Mount pleasant-street, Trecynon, was summoned for a similar offence. Defendant s girl had attended only 19 tiinea out of li-:1. The school fees weie paid by the Board of Guardians. 1 he defence was that the girl had no shoes. His Worship considered that no excuse, and made an order for her attendance at St. Fagan's Schools with costs. Llewellyn Hopkins, collier, was summoned for a 3imilar offence. Defend- ant's child had only attended school 31 times out of 114 and had passed no standard Order- ed to attcicl St.Fe.ait's scilooi:au(i to pay costs.- Richard James, collier, was summoned for a similar oflence. Mr. Gery stated that the excuse given to tho attendence officer was that the child had no shoes. His Worship said the child must go to school without shoes. Ordered to attend St Fagan's schools and pay the usual costs.—Fanny Griffiths, widow, was summoned for a similar offence. It appeared that in this case defendant was ill and had six children, being in great poverty. Summons withdrawn. —Thomas Wigley, charged with a similar offence, adjourned from last week to enable him to produce a medical certificate of his child's inability to attend school. The wife appeared and produced a certificate that the child wassuficr- from whooping cough but as the dates did not tally with the attendance officer's books, the bench ordered her to pay 4s (3d costs. David Davies was charged with a similar offence, I he case was adjoured to enable him to apply to the guardians for payment of school fees. XIFFLLIATION CASE.—Thomas Webber, land- lord of Lile Castle Inn, Aberaman, was charged with being the father of the illegitimate child of Elizabeth Edwards, formerly a servant at his house. Hr. Beddoe appeared for complainant and Mr Phillips in defence. It appeared that the case had been heard before in June, 1878, and dismissed for want of corroborative evidence. Complainant alleged that defendant was the father of her child born on the 3rd May, 1878. She left his service without notice not for his wife to know." On leaving defendant gave her 30s and other sums subsequently amounting to £ 8. One 10s was given her by defendant on Cap Coch road in tne presence of Mary James. In cross-examination, complainant admitted that she had had two illegitimate children previously. She came out of the union in con- sequence of a message received from Mrs Waiden. Had it not been for her she would not have moved in this case. Mary James was poorly and unable to attend. Mrs M. Waiden, a widow, living at Aberaman, stated that defendant had admitted to her that he had given complainant jC8, which, he thought, would keep her quiet for a long time. In oross examination, Mrs Waiden said defendant did not tell her he was the father of the child, only that he had givon complainant £ 8. In January last defendant levied a distress upon her (witness) for rent. Sho also removed a counter which ho claimed and obtained judgement against her for in the County Court. Did not say publicly on the road that she would serve him out and would toll about the £ 8. Mr Phillips contended that there was no material corrobora- tion of tho complainant's evidence, and that Mrs Waldon's evidence was not entitled to credence. The case w as dismissed. (SIMILAR CHARGE. David Davies, labourer, had an order made upon him to pay 2s 6d por week towards the support of the illegitimate child of Mary Jones, St John's court, Trecynon. The paternity was admitted.
THE SOUTH WALES COAL TRADE. DELEGATE MEETING AT MERTHYR. LARGE MAJORITY IN FAVOUR OF THE TEN PER CENT. REDUCTION. One of the largest delegate meetings, as well as one of the longest in duration, and one of the most important which has yet been held, took place on Monday in the Cross Keys Inn, Merthyr. From the various meetings which have previously been held touching the question of what should be done at the termination of the six months' notice to abolish the sliding- scale award, the public will have been made pretty well aware of the condition in which matters stood on this the last day of tho notice given by the associated masters The result of the conference of the men's delegates with the masters at Cardiff, on Saturday, was simply in etfect that 10 per cent. reduction in wagos in the collieries up till now lemaining under the association would be insisted upon, and that nothing short of this would be accepted, so that the associated masters might be put on tho same footing in point of wages with those who never had belonged to or had left the masters' association. The matter, as will be seen by the returns given below, has been settled in au amicable manner, and in favour of the em- ployers, and the anxiety which for the past six months has been felt as to the course which things wauld take has now been practically set at rest for some time to come at least. The number of men represented was 32,000 out of 40,000 steam coal colliers, none of the house "r coal men being represented. The latter branch, 20,000 in number, will settle the matter for themselves but, aftor tho determination of cho present meeting, the result can be looked for- ward to without fear. The first business of the meeting was the ap- pointment of tiie following officers,—Chairman, T. il. Jones, Ferndale vice-chairman, R. Win- stone, Ebbw Vale; socrataries, J. W. Andrews and W. Williams. Llwynypia. The result of the interview with the employers at Cardiff was then considered. One of the men's representa- tives on the sliding-scale committee was re- quested to address the meeting, and inform the delegates of what transpired at Cardiff on Saturday and he, having done so at length, pointed out to the delegates that nothing but a 10 per cent. reduction would satisfy the as- sociatcll employers. After a somewhat warm discussion, it was resolved by a large majority, that the reduction of 10 per cent.,bo conceded to the masters, but that, under the circumstances, an endeavour bo made to get the employers to accept the reduction from what the wages of the men were in 1875 instead of the present wages, which would cause the reduction to come less severely upon some classes of the men who had been reduced moro than others. The following is an analysis of the voting :— For conceding 10 per cent reduction as asked for 12,420 For a conditional concession down to the rates of 1875— 6,000 18,420 Neutral 11,410 Against submitting to reduction 2,001 For continuing conciliation committee 21,300 Against committeo 900 Neutral 9,721 3,921 This point having been settled, it was ar- ranged to make a representation to Mr. Dalziel of the result come to. A discussion next arose as to the duration of the contract under which the men were now working, and it was resolved that the workmen of the various collieries should ask their om- ployers' consent to work upon an open daily contract until such time as a deputation from the colliers had been able to ccme to an under- standing with them upon what ground the ro- duction should be acceptod. It was then agreed that the men's representatives upon the con- ciliation board should form a deputation to the employers on the subject. Subsequently the question of re-uniting the men together again in union was broached and discussed, and it was resolved, "That this meeting agroes to commence an efficient scheme of re-uniting the men together for the purpose of supporting any colliery or colliers that may in future ba asked to take a further reduction of wages considering that if such a request were made it would bring about similar results to what had happened when the Abernant and Plymouth Company's men first accepted the reduction, namely, a general reduction of wages." The meeting passed a further and somewhat similar resolution to the effect that the colliers take into con- sideration the propriety of joining themselves to other large bodies of miners in the United Kingdom, in order that they might have the means of receiving and giving support in time of necessity. The last resolution passed was That this meeting strongly condemns the practice of three men working together in a stall, as at preseat introduced in some of the collieries in the district." This coucluded the business of the meeting, which was conducted entirely in private, and nearly wholly in Welsh. It will be seen that the range of subjects discussed was a very wide one. The meeting was not concluded until six o'clock in the eveni ng. THE HOUSE COAL COLLIERS. At some of the pits in the Rhymney Valley the men have been requested to leave their tools in the workings in order to see what course events take in the next few days. In the event of no settlement being como to they will bo allowed to fetch their tools out. This request has been acceded to by the men, and in no case havo the tools been brought out as far as can be ascertained. It is anticipated that a series of meetings will be held to consider the position and to hear the reports from the delegates who attended the Cardiff meeting on Saturday. It seems generally understood that there will be no work at any of the collieries on Tuesday, and arrangements have been made to hold a general delegate meeting of the house coal colliers at Llancaiach. The result arrived at in Merthyr will have considerable weight in in- fluencing the decision.
RHONDDA VALLEY. At Pentre Police-court, on Monday (before NJ i- GwIIN-iii William), Thomas Michael, Richard Ormond, Jonathan Jones, Albert Walters, and James Morgan, all of Treorky, wore each fined 5s. including costs, for neglecting to have their children vaccinated.—Mary Jane Fielding, Pontro, was charged with smashing a window, the property of Eliza Northey, a neighbour. the defendant was also charged with being drunk and riotous. It appeared that the parties frequently quarrelled. Both had made use of disgusting language towards each other, and during an affray between them the defend- ant kicked her foot through complainant's window, and her boot coming off it passed into the house, and did damage to a flowor-pot. Defendant was finod 5s. Thomas Davies, Cwin- clydach, was charged by his wife, Margaret Davies. a delicate-looking young woman, with assaulting her. Complainant said, I have never complained when he beat me while he was under the influence of drink, but on this occasion he was perfectly sober. He beat me dreadfully about, the head." A warrant was issued for defendant's apprehension.—William Evans, Treherbert, was adjudged to be the father of the child of Sarah Cleavor, Treorky, and ordered to contribute 3s. 6d. per week to- wards its maintenance, with 26s. costs.—Thomas Watkins, Penygraig, was charged with assault- ing Elizabeth'Watkins, his wife. Complainant said that defendant had left her and had gone to live with his sistor and mother, and because she went to ask him to return home both he and his mother attacked har. It transpnej, however, that the complainant was a most violent woman, and that she, by her prodigal habits, treating neighbours, &c., had run him into debt. The defendant had offered to con- tribute 7s. Gd. out of the 21s. pur week he earned for tho maintenance of herself and two children. Tho case was dismissed. ———————————
I R 0 N A N D COAL T R A D E. ( From the Mining World, j Two reports of local companies have been presented during tho past week. and both indicate iiut too plainly the depression of trade which prevails in tho district. To allude first of all to the Rhymoy Iron Company. The direct- ors allude to the bad state of trade, and then go on to point out tho rapid substitution of steel for iron which has of late taken place. In 1878 the production of iron was 40,065 tons, compared with only 10.144 in the year for which the report is issued, and last year the steel made was 32,81') tons, against 7,757 tons ill 1878. The low prices of stool is also touched upon. but the directors express the belief that the depression in trade has reached its lowest limits. The directors also consider that there is a pros- pect of reopening trade with the United States. 1 he loss on the year would appear to be nearly £ 36,000. The Ebbw Vale Company have sus- tained a heavy loss during the past year by the terrible explosion at Abercaru. The loss on the company's working during the year amounts to £ 8,654 and depreciation in the market value of the stocks held has caused another loss of no loss than £ 39,893. The iron trade of this district has undergone no change of importanco since last report. The demand for iron is, as might be foreshadowed from the above remarks, totally unchanged and very quiet. It appears that Tredegar works are also goiug in for making tin-plates. Clearances of iron during the past weeft. have been rather larger, and chiefly to India. Prices have not in the least degree improved. The bar trade is alsowhat some in- active. Pig iron is very quoit. As for the tin-plate trade, no partioular alteration cau bo notod. Prices are maintained up to recent averages, and there is a fairly good inquiry. The Sliding Scale Committee of the South Wales Conciliation Board. The accountants' report as to the selling; prices of coal for the first four months of this year was read, and shows a gradual falling off. Since the end of 1875 prices have fallen off to the end of over 2s per ton for coal. The colliers soem more dis- posed to adopt conciliatory measures with the masters, and thoy have decided to send a deputation to meet the masters The inquiry for all description of coal has been good during the week, the demand for steam qualities on foreign account being brisk, yet no change can bo noted in quotations. The shipments are quite up to the average. Patent fuel is rather mo'o active. A serious accident has occurred at tho Warne pit, Cwmavon, the property of Messrs. James Shaw & Co. Six colliers were in the cage and descending when the rope broke, and all were precipitated to the bottom and killed. The Milford Docks works are expected to be completed in the course of about eight or nine months. The statutory meeting of the National Bank of Wales has been held at Manchester. Mr Crawshay was in the chair. Three branches have, it was stated, already been started, and the whole of 10,000 shares issued inscribed for. A further issue will be made at no distant date, in order to extend the business.

There being Ei572 remaining uncollected out of the last rate, £ 110 of which was said to be irrecoverable, the collector of rates was request- ed to recover the money without delay. INSPECTOR'S REPORT. The Inspector of Nuisances reported two fresh cases of typhoid fever since last meeting, being a docrease of one, and one death. There were no cases of scarlet fever. SURVEYOR'S REPORT. The following was read:- Surveyor's Office, Town Hall, Abeidare, July 2th, 1879. To the Chairman and Members oj the Aberdare Local Board of Health. Gentlemen.—Nuisance in Bedford-street.— I have inspected the slop and surface water nuisance at the upper end of Bedford-street, reported by the Inspector at the last meeting of the Board. Under present circumstances it is difficult to suggest a remedy for the nuisance, there being no sewer near tho premises in Regent street from which the water flows Possibly the water would bo less offensive if the surface channel in Bedford-street were improved, so that slops, &c., might be convoyed in the most direct way to the nearest gully. Bwdlfa-road.—I beg to submit a plan and soction of the Bwllfa-road, also an ostimate of the cost of repairing the same. Rainfall, &c.,—The raiiifall at Nauthir during the three months ending June 30th last was as follows :-5th April, total depth inches, 1-94 greatest fall in 24 hours, depth -32 number of days on which rain fell, 20. 28th May, total depth inches, 3-55 greatest fall in 24 hours; depth, 1'02; number of days on which rain fell, 23. 30th June, total depth inches, 7"59 greatest fall in 24 hours, depth, 1 57 number of days on which rain fell, 26.

The Clerk having read the agreement between tho Aberdare and Mountain Ash Boards, with refeience to the disposal of the sewage, it was ordered that the same be sealed with the seal oi the board. The Chairman remarked that it had taken a long time to come to a settlement, but he thought the agreement was now a very satis- factory one. ABERAMAN FOOlBKilJUh. Mr. Snape, in accordance with a notice given at the last meeting, said he thought the bridge over the Talf Valo Railway near the gas works should be repaired at the cost of the board. The Powell Duffryn Company now had very little use for it, but it was a great convenience for foot passengers between Cwmbach and Aberaman, and he therefore thought the board should keep it in repair. The Chairman asked who were to keep the approaches in repair. Mr. Snape said the Powell Company would keep the approach good over tho liver. The Chairman did not think they should expend rnonoy upon the bridge unless there was an undertaking that the approaches would be kept open. Mr. Snape said the road had been open to tho public so_ long that he did not apprehend any difficulty in that matter. The Chairman asked if the company wore aware that he (Mr Snape) was making this proposal. Mr Snape replied in the negative, but added that ho had spoken to the secretary on this subject, who was of opinion that there would bo no difficulty about keeping tho road open. Tho Chairman remarked that if any applica- tion on the subject came from the company ho should entain it favourably. Mr. Snape considered that inasmuch as it was the company's land, the application should come from the board and not from the company. No decision was come to. SEWAGE LOAN. Tho Clerk stated that he had made applica- f;r the sewage loan of £ 25,000, but as yet had nut received any reply. TENDERS FOR SCAVENGING, &C. The Board sat in private to con sidor tho tenders for scavenging and also for tho main out'all sewer. We understand that the tenders for tho latter will be gone into at a special meeting to be hold on Monday next.
