question of wages. The Huntly Coal Miners’ Union have made representations to the Taupiri Coal Mines. Ltd., for a reconsideration of the wages scale owing to the altered conditions of work now prevailing. The men explain that by using the safety lamps and being handicapped "by the. new system of blasting, it is not possible to make a living wage under the terms of tho existing agreement. They claim also that the union which was a party to this agreement was a union of only a few persons, formed for a special purpose, whereas tho union now includes the main body of minors. The .scale proposed by tho union provides for a general increase all round, with provision for a sliding scale in different boards. CHARGE OF MANSLAUGHTER. James Fletcher, who is charged with manslaughter in connection with the recent Huntly colliery disaster, was again brought before tho Court at Huntly yesterday.
