Lbot the p"t year had been a most successful oneâone of the best they had ever had. Referring to the campaign which had been carried on for Sunday closing in the hairdressing trade, he said that the local Union had given every assistance possible to Mr. Dowson, who was carrying on a similar campaign in London. The local Union, though a small society, had during the year banked £ 5 2s., and they had an account in the bank of -0248 18M. The Benevolent Fund had no calls upon it during the pa.It. year. Everyone seemed to be successful in business, but they had contributed JB25 towards opening a saloon to combat Sunday opening which was carried on by five people in the town. THE CLOSING HOURS. They as masters, he pointed out, had sacrificed an extra half-hour in order to ob- tain earlier closing, tnd he had a letter from the Town Clerk to say that in the course of a few weeks the Closing Ordei would come into operation, providing for closing at 7.30 on Monday and Tuesday, and 11.0 on Saturday. If they had compulsory closing of all businesses on Sundav, th-ey would be able to close at 10 o'clock on Saturdays, but whilst hairdressers in the town were able to open all day Sunday without any liability of prosecution, they oould not expect the local hairdressers to close at 10 o'clock. and so throw trade into the arms of the Sunday openers. (Hear, hear.) He alluded to the fact that the president had fcr six years filled the office of secre- t-I IIY. He took that opportunity of pre- senting him with a scarf of regalia. (Ap- plause. ) The President (Mr. T. D. Harries) briefly thanked the secretary for his gift. Mr. Geo. Harris gave the toast of Aindred Societies," and the president responded. A PRESENTATION.
