There svas a quarrel over con- i iUtions between the company and the mill in- March a strike was call- ed, and the mine has been closed or crippled ever since, and now, when jts normal output nt this season 1 would reach tlwj figure of to and 300 only. When the men j went on strike there were 580 work- ing in'the mine; this week there were about 235 at work, but many of them an; grec-n and the output is hardly in proportion even to the dimin-.sh.Mi number. The protracted nature of '.he strike has resulted 'in many of the mc-n going off. Many of them at the tiuw of departure had accounts and drew out before Leaving, imaginary matter, but the bank books. It i would be absurd, of course, to sug: gest that this was the rule, or that. the mc-n did not_ set'forth u list of grievances which they felt to be genuins enough; but in these grievances tlie .question of. wages played a part, only, and probably not the'.chief part. i It Js a ditlicuft roaiter to analyze and :if them.
