[I'KR I'ELSS ASSOCIATION. J The Wentporr Strike. Westpoet, November 1. ; The report that the men intended to take a ballot as to resuming work is unfounded. They are firm in the determination to tight it out to the bitter end. The Unionists admit there is no chance of work for them this year, but consider circumstances are shaping' m their favor. A strike donation of £JOO has been received from the Amalgamated Miners' Association of-Australia. \ irrt»poa««l CA*Op.«ratlv« CoulmtMtiig-.

The Synod sat till an early hour this morning, when, by a large ■: majority, the decision of the' Ihmedin Presbytery was reversed in the "matter of the Rev ,J. Gibb heresy hunt. The decision practically says ' thai, the Rev J. Gibb (of First Church) used language inconsistent with a Ministeris obngation, and sustains the appeal of Mr Begg's party in the 'Presbytery. Great ; intereafe was taken in the matter by the public, of whom there tijas a large attendance. The audience ■ frequently nr.mi ■fested approval of; theremarks of «;nue uneakers by UmdJy applauding, nn rt the Clerk of the Synod threatened, if the interruptions were persisted in,. ■ • to. .■ have strangers ejected. The threat did not. have altogether the desired dfect,, for as the night wore on-the .audience became impatient, and attempted to curtail proceedings by shuttling their feet. When the proposition w.is carried reversing the decision of the Presbytery the visitors received the result with loud applause, several times renewed. Some 'most" vigorous demonstrations of satisfaction emanated from the ladies.
