CLEPHAN—WILDE.

A very pretty wedding took place at Holy Saviour's Church, Tynemouth, on Wednesday, the bridge [sic] being Miss Marie Andree Wylde, daughter of Mrs. Wylde and the late Captain Wylde, of Victoria, British Columbia, and the bridegroom, Mr. Hugh Spence Clephan, son of Mr. R.C. Clephan, F.S.A., of Marine House, Tynemouth. The church was tastefully decorated. The service, which was choral, was conducted by Canon Hicks, Vicar of Holy Saviour's, and the Reverend Henry Crawford Armour, Vicar of Christ Church, Newcastle. The bride, who was given away by Mr. W. Pallett Cox, looked charming in white satin and chiffon, her long train being carried by Doris Bell, a pretty little maid of three years. The bride was also attended by three bridesmaids, her sister Miss Tressie Wylde, and Miss Elaine and Miss Dorothy Foster Clephan, sisters of the bridegroom. The duties of best man were performed by Mr. E.J. Watson, of Westover, Low Fell. After the service a reception was held by Mr. Clephan at Marine House. Mr. and Mrs Hugh Spence Clephan left later for Somersetshire, where the honeymoon is to be spend. They were the recipients of a large number of beautiful presents.

1919-03-05 present at a meeting of the Newcastle Chamber of Commerce, in the Mayor's Chamber at the Guildhall:

Mr. Hugh S. Clephan, on behalf of the North-Eastern Produce Exchange, moved the following resolution:—"That every trading organisation, Co-operative or otherwise, should contribute equally, in the form of income tax, to the State, for national purposes." He quoted figures from "The Grocer," showing that the turn-over of the co-operative movement was 180 millions, with profits totalling from 17 to 18 millions. That such a concern should continue to have immunity from the payment of income tax was a crying injustice to traders of the community as a whole. Under real business management the movement was capable of becoming an even greater menace to traders than it was now, and already co-operative societies were opening factories and taking over concerns—even in the coal trade.

Mr. J.T. Steel seconded the resolution.

The resolution was adopted.

Mr. Clephan, speaking for the Produce Section of the Chamber, said that thanks to the co-operation of the shipping agents, the ad valorem duty was not causing any delay. [article continues . . . ]

COLLIERY STRIKE THREAT.

Singular Dispute About Use of Machinery.

NON-UNION POINT.

An extraordinary position has developed at East Holywell Colliery, Northumberland, where, unless a settlement is reached, about 600 men and boys will cease work to-day and the pit will be laid idle, despite the fact that work and good wages are waiting for the miners.

The dispute is essentially a local one, and is due to the desire of the management to introduce a new system of working which, it is stated, will make the pit a profitable one instead of, as at present, a losing concern.

East Holywell Collier, which has been renamed Fenwick Colliery, was recently acquired by the Backworth Coal Company, whose chief agent, Mr. Guy Clephan, a well-known mining engineer in the county has desired to introduce certain mechanical methods of mining such as have been adopted with success in other pits in the Backworth group.

Yorkshire Post and Leeds Intelligencer
1931-11-09

Last minute efforts to bring about a settlement of the dispute at East Holywell Colliery failed yesterday, and in consequence nearly 600 men and lads, acting on the advice of the Northumberland Miners' Association, will be idle to-day.

[ . . . ]

The chief agent of the Backworth Collieries, Mr Guy Clephan, has intimated that the pit will remain open for work, and it is stated that a number of non-union men have signed on to accept the new conditions.

Officials and inspectors investigated the cause of the explosion and, last night, Mr Guy Clephan, agent to the Backworth Collieries, Ltd., the owners of Eccles Pit, officially declared it was due to an ignition of fire damp.

"The reason, however, is, as yet, obscure, and I cannot give any further explanation," he added.

£400 DAMAGES

Decree for Newcastle Draughtsman

Agreed damages against the co-respondent of £400 were awarded to Mr Whitton Christie, draughtsman, of Stannington Road, Newcastle, who was granted a decree nisi by Mr Justice Bucknill in the Divorce Court yesterday, because of the misconduct of his wife, Mrs Lily Christie. Petitioner was also given costs against the co-respondent, Mr Guy Clephan. The suit was undefended.

Mr and Mrs Christie were married at Newcastle Register Office in 1932, and they lived together at Forest Hall and at Newcastle.

According to the case for Mr Christie they were happy at first. They became acquainted with the co-respondent, and in July, 1935, petitioner's wife left him, and early this year he found that she had stayed with the co-respondent at an hotel at Falmouth.

Backworth Heroism

AMONG he latest changes to be reported at collieries in East Northumberland is the appointment of Mr J.S. Carson as agent of the Backworth Collieries Ltd., in succession to Mr Guy Clephan, who has retired. Mr Clephan, however, will continue to act in a consultative capacity.

[ . . . ]

The retirement of Mr Clephan recalls an incident, of which he himself would never speak but which is vouched for by people on whose word reliance can be placed. It concerns the Montague Collier disaster and reveals a degree of heroism seldom equalled in the annals of mine rescue work in this country.

The disaster, it will be recalled, occurred through the flooding of part of the Montague Pit by water accidentally released from an old mine working, the existence of which was not known. The water gather in a "dip," which became filled to the roof, and cut off the escape of the men who were working beyond.

By swimming under water Mr Clephan succeeded in reaching one of the places where men were marooned and effected their rescue. Physical exhaustion and the extension of the flood areas finally put and end to this hazardous rescue work.
