iTHE MANGHESTEB GTJABDIAN, THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 16. 1915. STOP THE SALE OF M PORTED CIGARETTES An open letter to Mr. Asquith . .. '- S6, Piccadilly, ) the Right Honv H. H. AsQuiTH, K.C., M.P., ' r ; 10, DOWNLN'G STREET, W. - Sir' Your attention lias no doubt beon directed to the fact that the sale of "a certain. weH;knotvn brand of imported. Egyptian Cigarettes in the United Kingdom has caused money to be forwarded from London to Germany via. a neutral State. This fact, placed in juxtaposition -with .vour own statement in reply to the deputation which recently -waited upon you at the . House of Commons, that " we must diminish our consumption of imports," is, I submit, sufficient reason for the "introduction "of a statute prohibiting the sale of imported cigarettes into the United Kingdom. .... Moreover, as one of the leading menibers-of the Trade, I am in a position to state that British-Biadc cigarettes are, like the British Army and Navy, superior to all others; My Company's product, "De Reszke" Cigarettes, to-day commands about three-fourths of the whole trade in cigarettes of its class. This overwhelming demand is the outcome wholly and solely of the British - smoker's recognition of the superiority of the Home product. I appeal to you, Sir, as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, to take the necessary steps for the protection of British interests without delav. Permit me", also, to draw your; attention to-the. fact that " De Reszke " Cigarettes (the invention of the undersigned, a Russian, by birth) are made in London by a British Company employing British Capital, and that my Company has no factory or branch whatsover in any enemy country. The smoker who buys " De Reszke " Cigarettes therefore has the satisfaction of knowing that the money he spends stays in this Country, to provide those silver bullets so emphatically described by the Minister of Munitions as essential to the attainment of the ultimate victory of the Allies. . I am, Sir, ' Your obedient , Servant, COOPERATIVE EMPLOYEES' WAGES. STRIKE NOTICES SIGNED IN SOME DISTRICTS. Meetings of "the employees o the Burnley, Kelson, Colne, Brierfiald, and Padiham' Co operative Societies are1 being held this' week" in connection with' the agitation for an increase of Avages.

' At the mass -meetings of the men. held up. to yesterday the action of the Amalgamated Union ci Lio-operative Employees has . been unanimously approved, and members signed the strike notices to be tendered unless the advance in wages ie conceded.

At the Munitions Tribunal for the district of Blackburn yesterday a Blackburn : firm com plained that two turners went to their work late on August 27, and also that they returned under the influence- of drink.

The representative of the firm who filled in the form of complaint said the foreman told him the men looked " rough," and he concluded they had been drinking. . Mr. T. E. Mansfield (chairman) : You have no right to do that. It is a serious charge, as a workman will find when it is proved.
