We have tak- en occasion to deny this charge in tlie most formal and most specific terms to the proper authorities; and this denial has been widely circulat- ed. In spite, however, of bur denials, which we are prepared to. establish either by affidavit or through ah m- vefitigstion of any kind; the ridicu- lous charge, is being constantly re- peated.

However, you can easily get this through the Secretary of the Typographical Union. The reason why we had the type set for the Alexandra Readers by J. S. Gushing Co., is that they are, without any exception, the best school book plate-makers in the world today. When we undertook to bring out a new set of Readers, we went to ihe very best place in which we could get the books set, and, lo be perfectly frank, we did not as to whether or not the shop was Union shop, and we do not know a the present minute.

Several members spoke in an able manner on. the. good fight the me-" chahics are making against the C. P. R. and several good schemes were formulated to assist headquarters fi- nancially. The Sports committee were empowered to devise some scheme whereby they could procure funds for the local strikers on Labor Day. The Legislative Committee brought in. a recommendation to the effect that the placing of a candidate in the field be. left over until after the meeting of the Trades and Labor Congress at Halifax. This brought about the debate of the evening the meeting finally adopting the com- mitee's recommendation. The other was routine.
