LATEST CABLEGRAMS. London, Thursday. The great coal strike has virtually begun, although conferences aiming at a settlement have not completed their efforts. One hundred and fifteen thousand miners are now idle, including 32,000 in Nottinghamshire and Tyne. y.. The export trade is practically at a standstill. The Government has submitted. four propositions to the two sides, of which the miners have accepted two and rejected the others, insisting upon the minimum wage rate demanded in the beginning. ; A grave feature of the situation is said to be the miners' insistence on a definite scale taking the place of the system of conferences suggested by the Government. ■ The "Times" states that there is no doubt the solution of the problem lies in conceding a minimum wage rate, with safeguards. (r Ten thousand South Wales engine- f men have decided to strike immediately for a minimum wage. It is stated semi-offlcially that R(is- ; sia has asked Italy on what terms " she will make peace, wi...
