I · TENDERING. (Tol theeditor of thie irbers' .Advocate.) :.i;,--n your iasuo'of TVWednesday las3t I see "A 'Vbrking Man" enquiring ' 'Whether it is' within the rules of the'Association to allow the members of the Miners' Union to. tender. for. and do ]a bourers' work,.-that. is,. not' getting coal,-and while the pits are in full worlk ?" 'Io Which you reply, "That there is nothing in tlhe Union rules to prevent a member from tendering, provided that it is not coal getting, or work connected therewith." If I ulderstand you aright," a miner has no right to tender for any sort of work at all. Coal getting he cannot tender for and remain in the Union,-to drive a tunnel in clay, or a drift in stone, or get a prop in the busl, he must not, under any circum stances; neddle with, as they are connected with coal getting. TI'his is' positively stating. if a mari once gets coal, he mustremain it minoer to the end of time,-no more open air work for him. Nonw, Mr. Editor, I am a " working miner...

The Working Classes and the Coal Trade in England. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 12 August 1874
The Working Clasaes aiii the Coal Trade ln Mngland. RECENT advices from home give us fuller in the coal. trade in England and Wales, and the consequently high prices which have alarmed consumers and oaralised trade, than the' meagre intelligence conveyed by tel grams. It is remarkable, however, that notwithstanding .the national interest and ,anxiety created on the subject, no satisfac tory solution appears to have been arrived at by any of the numerous people who have given their attention to the anomaly. That it is an anomaly is beyond doubt, indeed it reaches a higher grade in the scale of social. problems, leading us to the conclusion that cause.sare in operation entirely beyond our fcapabilities of detection as they probably are. beondl human control. • aonmists and other thoughtful pee?ea have endea voured but in' v*la to aeount for the convulsion in tlh .prioe .ad: production of .the great stple, end after having exhausted the range orf njectue are forced to invoke the aid of...

SINGULAR STORY OF A MINE. [Newspaper Article] — Miners' Advocate and Northumberland Recorder — 12 August 1874
SINGULAR STORY OF A MINE. THE Western Morning Ntews Bsays :-Boscas well Downs is one of the oldest mines in the St. Just district, has returned within a com paratively recent,period ores to the valne of about a quarter of a million ; and is reported at present to be looking exceedingly well. Yet this mine has been recently the scene of one of the most extraordinary collapses on record. It is now worked by a limited liability company, divided into 18,000 shares, on which £3. each is recorded to have been.paid. This company was formed about three years since, and: not long after operations were commenced, the mine passed into the dividend list. This did not, however, last long. The total dividends only reached 5s. 6d. and the last dividend, one of 2s., was paid in October, 1871. Since then the operations have been vigorously con ducted, upwards of 300 hands being employed, and the monthly pay amounting to something like £1,000. From what has now transpired it would seem that the mine ...
