BARRY SHOP ASSISTANTS' UNION. PROGRESS OF THE EARLY CLOSING MOVEMENT. The monthly general meeting of the Barry branch of the National Amalgamated Shop Assistants' Union was held on Tuesday evening last at the Glamorgan Restaurant, Barry Dock, Mr W. J. Cousins presiding.—The Secretary (Mr E. K. Honey) read the monthly report from head-rffice, which showed that the income for January was X166 Is lOd—an increase of L44 2a as compared with the income in January, 1898; provident expenditure, JE79 7s lid—an increase of X23 158; and management expenses, JE86 178 2d—an increase of JEo3 Is 8d, while 201 and 60 affiliated members were also enrolled during J anuary.-Mr A. S. Snelling was elected representative of the branch on the South Wales District Council, in place of Mr E. K. Honey. Messrs W. S. Lewis, D. Jones, A. S. Snelling, and Miss Hodges were also appointed collectors.—Reports of the proceedings of the Trades Council were given by the representa- tives, Messrs D. Jones and W. S. Lewis. The former also gave a report of the quarterly meeting of the South Wales District Council, and announced that arrangements were to be made for a visit to the various branches in South Wales by the Union organiser in Sep- tember next.—The progress of the early closing movement came up for discussion, Mr W. S. Lewis believing that the boot and shoe estab- lishments in Holton-road should again be visited, as he had noticed that night some of these shops open till nine o'clock. He would propose that the three ministers be asked to wait upon the proprietors and managers of thesejshops again, asking them to abide by the recognised hours for closing.—Mr D. Jones seconded the resolution, and referred to the fact that the majority of the trade societies in the district had expressed their approval of the agitation for earlier closing, and had promised their support. But, unfortunately, it was not the men who did the shopping. The men, no doubt, felt conscientious in passing the resolu- tions of sympathy, but the women would go into the shops if they saw a light there.—After further discussion Mr W. S. Lewis' resolution was carried unanimously. FORTHCOMING ANNUAL CONFERENCE AT BRADFORD. The eighth annual conference of the Shop Assistants' Union will be held at Bradford on Easter Sunday and Monday next. The con- ference will be invited to express its opinion on the following resolution That, after two years' trial, the Truck Act of 1896 has failed to materially affect the system of fines in shops." Resolutions dealing with "Agreements," Sun- day Trading," Living-in System," and "Over- time," will be submitted. In this latter respect it may be interesting to note that the Savoy Hotel, Limited, were summoned on Monday last for failing to comply with the Shop Hours Act, 1892, by employing persons under the age of 18 for more than 74 hours a week, and for failing to exhibit a notice.
