CLEAVAGE SEEMS TO BE GROWING ENGLISH.'LABOR UNIONISTS CRIT- ICISE' ASQUITH POLICY- SOCIALISTS UNPOPULAR London, Sept. Trade Union Congress, at Newport this week has been a remarkable demonstration of the sobriety, solidarity and growing power of British, trades unionism. While Socialism has been strongly in evidence, it lias been Socialism a constructive and not destructive kind. Syndicalists, who a few years ago seemed triumph completely in English unionism, have had few supporters at Newport The 600 delegates represent trade unions with a memberschip of 000, by far the largest reached. William Thome, M.P., of Congress, was once1 a 'hoy, and was long regarded as'the leading advocate of the revolutionary propaganda. He is the member for West Ham, the most Socialistic bor- ough in England. In his presidential address he was, however, prudent and constructive. The Congress has pronounced a de- cisive verdict against Syndicalism, the delegates declaring that the Syndical- ist propaganda during the past year has nearly ruined unionism. The Congress is equally pronounced ag- ainst compulsory arbitration, and many of the leading delegates de- clared that should the government in- troduce such a> measure', it would be unswervingly opposed. Con- gress revealed many -lines of cleav- age between labor and the present government, delegates paTtioularly protesting the government's employ- ment of force against the strikers during the recent labor disputes. The Congress 1ms proved somewhat critical over the Insurance Act, argu- ing that the act has made things more difficult for irregularly employed workers. Tlie more extreme labor leaders have been heard with ill-concealed im- patience. Their speeches marked their policy of universal atrlke, and were held up to scorn. "Had wo fol- lowed them, and done what they want the delegates, "and called-a general strike because of tho defeat of the unionism would have beon overwhelmed throughout the country." AN ACCIDENTAL SHOOTING Beaudette, Minn., Sept. Youngberg, of Grassy River, Ont.. died last night at Spooner Hospital, as a result of a gunshot wound 're- ceived while hunting in a canoe at Gull Hay.
