THE SUGAR BOUNTIES. Lord St inmore presided on Monday over a meet- mg of tha Anti-Bounty League,, held in London. Letters sympathising with the general objects of the league were read from Sir H. Norman and Sir T. Sutherland, M.P. The chairman said it was becoming more and more recognised that, they were lighting the battle of free trade, and not, lighting agiinst free Grade. Naturally, they felt disappointed at; the joniplete failure of the Brussels Conference, regard- ing which some big promises had been made, The Giovernuient had taken up a verj half-hearted position in regard to the question. Sir Nevile Lubbock, in moving a resolution recording dis- appointment and regret at the failure of the Brussels Conference, contended that the people of this-country were not gainers, but heavy losers, by the bounty- system. Sir H. Tozer, Agent-General for Queensland, seconded the resolution, which was unanimously carried. Mr. Arthur Eades, secretary of the Bir- mingham Trades Council, moved a resolution de- claring the failure of the Brussels Conference to be due to the attitude of reserve enjoined by the Government on the British delegates, which was inconsistent with the previous declarations of Ministers on the subject. The resolution was seconded by Sir J. Commerell and carried. Sir M. Bhownaggree, M-l., lUored a resolution calling on the Government to enter without further delay into A convention with Germany, Austria, Belgium, and Holland for the abolition of the bounties, with security against State-aided competition in the open markets of the Empire by such bounty-giving countries as may refuse to become parties to the con- vention. General Laurie, M.P., Sir F. Young, and Mr. R. G. Webster, M.P., supported the resolution, which was agreed to.
