ACCIDENTS IN MINES.
(Received May 5,. 1.30 p.m.) LONDON, April 30. . Mr Sidney Webb, on giving evidence before the Coal urged the nationalisation of the coal mines. He
said that tirrv -whole system of profitniaking was now upon trial." There would certainly bo trouble if an attempt were made to revert to' pre-war conditions. It was a cold, incontrovertible fact that it usually cost less to compensate for accidents than to prevent them. This was one fault of the profiteering system, and should not be considered as iiti indictment against the coal-owners.
