A London contemporary says:—The creation of a Conciliation Board for the settlement.of labor disputes is one of the most useful works initiated by the London Chamber of Commerce. At the meeting of working men delegates, held at Botolph House, EfistehP.tp, ou the evening of July 4th, considerable progress was made with the acheme, which has been drawn up by Mr S. B. Boulton, a. member of the Council, who, although a capitalist, seems to enjoy the complete confidence of the representatives of London Trade Unions. fihe object of the Conciliation Committee is to get all the organised trades represented on the Central Board, and for this purpose they have been formed into twelve groups. Each of these groups of trades will appoint one representative, and, m addition to the twelve labor delegates, there will be twelve representatives of capital, and a few ex officio members. It is also.intended that each trade shall have a Conciliation Committee of its own, composed equally of the representatives of labor and capital, and only m the event of these Committees being unable to agree will, the good offices of the Central Board be called into requisition.
