Caplej in the- chair, tfir; P.Rowiug re-'.-Jutinn was submitted by Mr E. Cox and seconded by Mr J'. Woodhat;! - That Ibis union decide to no longer lewd their meetings at the Trades Hail in view of the decision of the Board of 1 nr-/. re ilie Drivers' liuon net to allow a serial evening Uj be held at which other than tea, coffee, and ginger-pops are- indulged in. In our opinion such ;:janiiiiK.L.teriy restrictions arc hardly in keeiiiiie with our idea ;- la steady. sober, industrious workers, and withal free men of the world. Therefore, as it is this union’s intentions to hold from time to i:a:e this class of social evening (a smoke night), wo naturally yearn for permanent Quarter?, where reasonable latitude is allowed for the purpose, mentioned. With this end in view the secretary ia instructed to secure premises for our future raac-ting place, etc. An amendment was moved by Mr J. Herd in favor of deferring the matter for a month, but on hearing argument* in support of the resolution, he withdrew his amendment and s[>oke in support of the resolution. He condemned auch an interference with the liberty of the union in their power of discrimination as to what -•a-, and ptoper for the entertainment and general organisation of their members. ihie resolution was* carried unauiTho mooting, we are advised, was the largest ever field <j£ ih« tmioo.
