LONDON', Oct. first annual con- gress of the dockers' union met yesterday with sixty delegates present. Tom Mann presided, and in his opening address- boasted that the union had obtained an advance of 7s. per week for half its and 3s. and 6d. per week for the other half, besides forcing the aboli- tion of the old contract system. Mann declared that the Ship Owners' Federa- tion would not succeed in crushing the dockets' union. The congress, he said, would be called upon to consider a further extension of the scope of the union in the shape of a scheme to take over all the dock workers of London on a co-operative Imsis. When several delegates rose to inquire whether the union should unload the Australian, vessels soon to arrive, which were loaded by non-union men, Manu evaded the question. This matter is causing great anxiety among the dockers. The knowledge that the Ship Owners' fed- eration is ready and deteuniued to chal- lenge a trial of strength in the shape of a strike inclines the leaders of the dockers to advise that the vessels be un- loaded in regular co ,rse.

About 10 o'clock, while standing in front of the Scovllle house, conversing with two gentlemen friends, a gang of half a dozen roughs came along and attacked him, knocking him down and kicking him brutally. The roughs then fled and Mr. Joslyn was picked up by his friends and taken into a livery office, where he died within a few momenls.

It is the first murder ever committed in Mt.
