Dowlais Railwaymens Meeting
Dowlais Railwaymen's Meeting. PRESENTATION TO MR. COLLINS. A well-attended meeting of the Merthyr and Dowlais branches of the N.U.R. was held on Sunday afternoon at the Wimborne Hall, Dowlais, for the purpose of hearing an address by Mr. S. A.

Fourteen million people were always on the verge of starvation. Discontentment had arisen, and the question was, how oould it be har- nessed r The reply was. by getting all the railwaymen inside their organisa- tion. There were 300.0000 members still without. Moral persuasion would have to be employed against the spirit of non-unionism, but 'that failing, the time would come when they would re- fuse to work beside non-unionists. The Government had the right to tax all for the provision of things necessary foi the w
