WORK AND WAGES.

Per Press Association.—Copyright.]

LONDON, September 10. A resolution was carried by the Trades Union Congress at Birmingham demanding an amendment of the Conspiracy Act m the direction of placing workmen and employers in a similar position, and punishing employers issuing black lists.

A HANDSOME BONUS TO MINERS. The Kaitangata Railway and Coal Company, as the outcome of the twenty-second year of their operations, pay the usual dividend, carry forward £2,000 for the prosecution of new works, and give the hands at the mine the substantial bonus of £6OO, this sum to be divided amongst the men and boys according to a calculation, the equitable principle of which is that those who have worked the greatest number of days receive the largest share, the maximum being £5. The company have in the past made similar recognition of the men’s services, and it is pleasant to be able to record that continued prosperity enables the company to pay the miners this bonus, thus further proving the good feeling, that exists as between employers and employed in this extensive, well-managed, and generous concern.
