Among other things, they had helped to bring about Sunday Closing in Wales and Ireland, and had also helped to make it illegal to pay wages in public-lioucea, or to hold meetings in public-houses during ejection time. They hoped also to make it illegal to hold inquests in public-houses, when other buildinsrs were available, as was the case at present- Mr. Roes then made an eloquent appeal for all to help on the temperance move- ment by joining the Order of Good Templary. Samuel Stanton, from the Grand Lodge of Good Templar,?, dealt at some Length with the action of the of Lords in rejecting the Licensing Bill. He said he thought that the work done last year was not a]tog-ether lost, for it had brought the temperanoe question to I the front, and a part of the Licensing Bill bad been taken out asi it stood and inserted into the Children's Act, which was now law. At- tempts were being made in London and other place-; to defeat the objects of the Children's Act by engaging nurses to stand outside of pub- lic-houses to take care of young children, while their parents went in to have their drink. But ilotwithstanding this, the Act was a good one, even if it made it only more difficult for the women to obtain drink.—Dr. Arthur Jones also -j_-
