TO-DAY'S PROCEEDINGS. A GENERAL POOL. The Trades Union Congress resumed to-day, the presidential address being delivered by Councillor Stevens. After welcoming the delegates to Birmingham, he referred to the engineers' dispute, contending that that was another illustration of the attempt of -com- bined capital to weaken and cripple the forces of labour. If the struggle were prolonged, the engineers would have to appeal throughout the country to their fellow trades unionists for help, and that help must be given, as under no circumstances could they allow the engineers to be defeated. He advocated the establishment of a grand federation of all trades throughout the United Kingdom, which would create a pool to which all might contribute and dip into in times of need, not as a charity but as a right. As a man of peace he trusted, however, matters would not be pushed to extremities, but that reason would in the end prevail. He spoke of the necessity of obtaining a legal eight hours day and larger representation of the working classes in Parliament, so that they might hold the balance of power between the two great political parties. The workers, how- ever, must be prepared to pay and support their representatives. On the motion of Mr. Pete Curran, London, a resolution was unani- mously adopted expressing sympathy with the engineers and promising moral and financial support. He said the struggle for an eight hour day bad become one for all trades. Mr. Pickard, M.P., said if necessary all trades unionists would tender notices. ——————<——————
