Dr. Ridding, in his presidential address, alluded to the present industrial con- flict which was falling heavily upon the city- He had seen their conflicts with neither liberty nor betterment of any kind, and he thought their best contribution to the dispute might be their Congress principle itself. The differences were best settled by free discussion in a spirit of co-operation.
