liberals alike and try to prevent tbe
turtles from passing further legislation
before both agreed to placa in the fore
ground proposals to better the condi

crowds watched the procession psss to

in Phoenix park passed the familiar
eight hour resolution, besides calling
for manhood suffrage and the payment
of members of parliament.
The worklngmen'i meeting in
Glasgow, after adopting tho eight honr
resolution, demanded the abolition of
the honse of lords and the nationaliza
tion of the railways.
In other large towns in the United
Kingdom resolutions of a similar tenor
were approved by the working people.
