MR CHAMBERLAIN. AN ADDRESS ON THE JEWELLERY TRADE. Mr J. Chamberlain, M.P., was on Monday pvenmg the guest at the annual dinner of the Birmingham Jewellers' and Silversmiths' Asso- ciation. In proposing prosperity to that organisation he dwelt upon Hie development of the jeweller's industry in Birmingham, which. although a modern introduction, afforded employment in 1860 to about 7,500 persons, while the consumption of precious metals amounted to more than a million sterling per annum. With regard to matters of legislation affecting the trade, he remarked that theirs wall one of the few remaining protected trades in the country, for they had a heavy duty on a large part of their production, and they were subject to a statutory law with respect to ball marking in order to protect the public ugainst possible frauds by members of the trade. Ho hoped the protective nuty upon silver and gtild plate was on the eve of aboiition, as he was certain that its imposition tended to the injury of the trade it was intended to protect. As regarded hall marking the question was not quite so simple, but his personal opinion was that the object intended would be secured by a voluntary instead of a coicpulgory marking. Ancient and modern history showed that jewellery was not an article ot luxury, but a necessity of human nature, and that men and women- especially women—could do without most things else. But even the most savage tribes must have their nose rings and lip rings, and, therefore,there was no fear ot the jewellery trade ever dying uut.
