One of tho largest meetings held in Christchurch took place last night under the auspices of the Tailors' Union, when the following resolutions were carried unanimously :—Expressing the fullest sympathy with the newly-formed Union, and wishing it every success in carrying out its aims and objects as contained in a circular issued to employers ; expressing thankfulness to those employers who had sent favorable replies, and calling attention to those firms which are manufacturing in a hostile attitude to the Union's action; also expressing the fullest sympathy with any legitimate action which may be taken by the Union to put down the pernicious system of sweating. Apologies with expressions of sympathy with tho movement were read from Bishop Grimes, Father Lemenant De Chesnais, J. Joyce (M.H.R.), and Rev. L. M. Isitt. A very large percentage of those present were youDg women. At the close of the meeting an attempt was made to contradict the statement that girls were informed that the log was of a lower class than they had thought it, and were accordingly paid less than they expected. The meeting met the contradiction with expressions of indignant dissent, and would not listen to the speaker. In other respects the proceedings were most orderly.
