CHESHIRE FEDERATION OF TRADES COUNCILS. ♦ MEETING AT CHESTER. A meeting of the recently-formed Cheshire Federation of Trades and Labour Councils was held at Chester on Saturday, Mr. J. Rowlands (Birkenhead) presiding, and representatives attending from Crewe, Northwicn, Macclesfield, and Chester.—The Chairman, in referring to the inauguration of the federation, said two of its objects were to obtain better labour repre- sentation upon town and county councils and to bring the various trades councils into closer unity, and thereby strengthen the position of labour in the county.—Mr. W. Carr (Chester) expressed the hope that the federation would bring all its influence to bear upon the Cheshire County Council with regard to their adoption of the fair wage clause.' He also hoped an effort would be made to organise those towns where there were no trades councils.—On the proposition of Mr. Bachuss (Crewe), seconded by Mr. Astley (Northwich), a resolution ex- pressing regret at the action of those members of the Cheshire County Council who thought it consonant with their position as the public rep- resentatives to vote against the interests and claims of labour, and a determination to oppose them at the next election was unanimously carried, the meeting at the same time recording its appreciation of the services of Mr. Tomkin- son and those members who supported the fair wage clause. The following resolution, moved by Mr. Astley, and seconded by Mr. Compston (Macclesfield), was also carried: That this meeting of the Federal Council, comprising the whole of the Trades and Labour Councils of Cheshire, observes with surprise, and also with sincere regret, that a place is not given on the agenda of the Trades Congress, to be held in Birmingham next week, for the discussion or consideration of the present severe struggle through which trades unions, and especially the Amalgamated Society of Engineers, are passing at the present time, and prays that the congress during the present sitting will give the question some consideration." A hope was also expressed that a national scheme of trade union federation would also be debated.
