In reply to the representations of Messrs Lomas and Newton, Government have offered to appoint a Commission to enquire into all the circumstances connected with the Greymouth coal difficulty. The delegates said they had no objection, but the Commissiori must not interfere with the miners' wages. The Premier sent a further reply, pointing out that he had no intention to meddle with wages, which was a question between employers andthemen, butthe Commission would certainly take have to cognisance of the matter, because wages really lay at the root of the whole difficulty. No answer has been received from the delegates but it is probable the Commission will be appointed, m any case, as the dispute is regarded as seriously affecting the harbor on which so much money has been spent.
