CHESTER WOMEN UNIONISTS. [ TRlSiTI WARD GATHERING. I On Tuesday eveniiig in coniuction with the Trinity Ward branch e-f the- Chester Women's I Unionist. Association a lec,turc and entertain- ment were given at the1 Newgate-street Assem- bly Rc«om«; There v-as an exce).lent attendance, the chair being taken by Mr. John Dodd, who wai- supported by Messrs. D, L. Hewitt. E. S Meredith. Arthur Wall, R. T. B. Atcherlcy, W. V. J. Walliey, C. II. Giassey (secretary and agent), etc. I The Chairman said he was convinced t-hat in the near future th.; ladies would have to be J reckoned with both at Parliamentary and munijipil elections. The work done by women Unionists at viie municipal elections during the last two Yh,r hHl been of inestimable value to the party, and wh n wo fieri f-ecured the vote for which they were now a.gitating, the majority of their votes would no doitbt be I given on the Unionist «?ide. The lecturer was Mr. Henry Harrison, of the Nation; Union of Conservative and Con- stitutional Associations, London, who ma.rle a comprehensive review of the political sd nation, | shewing how lamentably the pr, c-iit Govern- 1 ment had failed to legislate in conformity wit-h j Ú1J wishes of the pocvple. '1'h(')' we're returned to power upon false pretences, and had been found out. I'pon the Government's own con- feajion the electors had been dcCtided by the cry of Chinese slavery in South Africa, and while it, was now admitted that- the Chinese were not. working mider c'(}]1{htion" of slavery, their dishonest taotics had recoiled upon their own he.'t(,l:" by tlie subsequent, revelations of the kind of identured labour they had them- eelves sanctioned in the New Hebrides a-;rninst the wish of our Colonial Governments. A com patison between the terms of indentured labour in P?uth Africa and those under wL?h men, and even women and children, were employed | in the. New Hebrides .shewed that it was the j present. Government and not the Unionist [ party who had laid themselves open to t.he charge cf permitting slavery. Air. Harrison denounced the Education Bill as having been framed practically at the dictation of a small section of tho Nonconformist parry who wished to attack the voluntary school syutemt and the interests of the Church. In opposing that measure the Unionist party were fighting for religious liberty, and they were determined not to allow Parliament to determine what form of rdigiol1s te¡whing hou[(1 be given to their children. A.s to the Radical attack upon the House of Lords, Mr. Ilirrieon pointed out its absurdity in view of the fact that, they had made three t imes as many poors as the Union- ist. party, the latest promotion to the Upper Chamber being that of t.he gentleman who wa<; the- author of --lie well-known phrase "ending or mending" that tribunal. In the whole oour of political history the Hou, of Lords had never opposed the wisher of the people. Dealing with tho 1 Irish question, the lecturer said that notwith- standing that the Radical party were pledged to Home Rule, the interests and welfare of Ireland had always been best served under Unionist rule. Instead of "Peace, retrench- ment and reform," the Radical pol-icy of to- day wouild be best summed up in the motto, "Muddle, false economy and robbery." (Ap- plause.) Mr. D. L. Hewitt, in moving a votc, of thanks to Mr. Harrison, said there was no doubt that the present Gov0rnnJoent appealed to the coun- try mainly on the questions of Chinese labour and education. They got into power by false- hood, by using those political arts to which they- had been so long accustomed. Legalised rob- bery of licensees was indefensible on all grounds, and the result. of the Peckham elec- tion indicated a great upheaval against the righteousness of a Bill which, while sanction- ing the grossest injustice, was utterly useless in promoting temperance. The Government's muddling with the defensive fores was s hewn locally by the fact that. bpfore Mr. Jlafidane' s .scheme came into operation there were 000 Volunteers in ("heeler, whilj there were new only 75. (ApplauK.,) Mr. Arthur Wall seconded, and the ixhsoiu tion was carried. At line enjoyable entertainment which fol- lowed, songs, etc., were given by Miss Ford. Mrs. Sidney Sharpe, Mrs. John Simon, Miss W alley, and Messrs Whitelev, Coveney and Sullivan, Mr. R. flewiek accompanying.
