Union and Non-Union. THE local branch of the Miners' Asso- &nbsp; ciation recently asked the mine managers whether they were agreeable that the mines on the Barrier should be worked under Union rules. This question was debated by the managers ; and their re- ply to the Association will be that they &nbsp; will not interfere in the matter. They see no reason why they should discharge any man because he is a non-unionist ; neither do they feel disposed to take a man on simply because he is a unionist. This matter is to be further discussed at the next meeting of the Association.
