THE CHESHIRE FEDERATION OF TRADES AND LABOUR COUNCILS. The first official meeting of the above Federation was held at Northwich on Saturday. The president (Mr. J. Rowlands, of Birkenhead) occupied the chair, and delegates were present from Crewe, Northwich, Chester, Birkenhead, and Runcorn. The president delivered an address, in which he referred to the abolition of the class distinction which had formerly existed among trades unionists, and contended that tradesmen and unskilled labourers should all band together for the common good. He thought the trades unions of this country should at once set about to utilise their power to engage the legislative machinery in their interests, and not be governed exclusively by plutocracy. (Applause.) Mr. Tolley, Birkenhead, called attention to a letter which the matron of the Clatterbridge Workhouse (Wirral Union) had addressed to a non-society engineer out of work, whom she advised to apply to Messrs. Lairds, at Birken- head. He regarded it as a great shame that public officials should utilise ratepayers' pro- perty (workhouse note paper) to bring black- leg engineers into a firm, the employes of which had been locked out. The conference debated the question of piece- work on the river Weaver, and it was resolved to represent to the trustees that piece-work was contrary to trades union rules, and to ask them to receive a deputation on the subject.
