With regard to under - manning and overwork the report recommended the adoption of the eight - hour system as an effective check on both. The report was adopted, and afterwards - Jlr. W.

Mr. M'Gregor, Glasgow, moved as follows : " That in the opinion of this meeting, tbe present system of deck - loading i tbe direct and indirect cause of great loss 01 ine amongst our seafaring community, and it is resolved that steps be taken to bring before I'arlia - tnent the nrgrnt necessity of so amending the Acts re lating to deck - loading as to prt nibit the dangerous practice and to make it a penal oOenco on the part of shipowners and captains engagirg in it."

Mr. Flay, Liverpool, moved : "That in the opinion of this meeting of delegates from branches throughout England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, tbe almost universal practice of under - manning vessels, both in the stokeholes and on deck, is a fruitful source of loss of life and property, and It is resolved that the executive committee of this union be instructed to take such steps as may be deemed necessary to bring before l'arl lament the fact regarding this pernicious practice on tbe part of shipowners, and to prevail on the Legislature to put a stop to it by legal enactments."

THE LONDON COUNTY COUNCIL The usual weekly meeting of the Council of the Administrative County of London was held yesterday afternoon at the County - hall, Spring - garden. Sir John Lubbock, if. P., tho chairman, presiding. The Financo Committee reported that Treasury. Bills for the amount of 100,000 ami maturing in three months had been purchased by the treasurer, at a discount rate of 4 9 - 16 per cent, per annum, subject to a charge of t per cent, per annum for commission. It was agreed to lend the Vestry of St. Pancra of C625d., which had been the rata for the preceding half - year. You will sea that, taking the difference of charge and differences of receipt together, on tbe whole there is an increased charge of 107,566 and an increased receipt of 129,750, leaving that balance WBlCCl a MTV JWt UXmiVIKU V, .,11 . . . WW h vw sidur only the working of tbe Council on the estimates of April last, there is an increase of outgoings on our be felt some of tfcoee obfoertoos bjjDsatf, aad faaHv we came to tsxis basis of understand inf. that if aay sum was to be set aside at all It must be oat of the balasjee which wo had to our aeeount, and aot af set any assets that were la the future, and whisa already had their own destination. Well, I consider teat that amendment is a very great Improvement trpoa the lrtt which was proposed, and If there is ts ha any amend, ment at all of that kind I do aot think that It ean be put ia a less objectionable form. Bat, a I told Mr Spicer so I must tell the Council now, I an entirely, as far as my own opinion go, against tarrying any portion nf our funds to a suspense aeeount on the ground of technical edaeation. What I wast to pat before the Council is this Is technical education oee of the most argent subjects with which we have to deal ? (Cries of " No') I woald venture to suggest to the Couneil some few things which loom before as. in the near future. The Couneil have decided to set the whole world rolling to acquire the water monopoly ; we have not laid tha ghost of tbe Thajnes tunnel (laughter): there are farther txpn - s la no verr distant future at Barking (hear, hear) ; the outfall of is creating a bar Its re it Udolat - more the sewage than that, it ia rjnlsoninir all the water h - lnw V estimate of 41,599 and a decrease of receipt of : bear), and I cannot help thinking that we shall a bo 1,000, making an increased charge of 43.699 ; but, j distent date have to deal with it. Well then, if 1 14 on the other hand, we hare increased receipts and de - ! to pick out an urgent question, one that we should creased payment to the extent of 34,166. leaving j address ourselves to in preference to all others, I should on the whole of our own estimates a decreased balance nrefar to baein with imnrnvinrr tha rfnlila. r of expenditure of 8,443. Eutthi on the total account working - classes. (Hear, bear.) When we look at these is covered by tb balance which I have just read to subject water, tunnel. Barking, open space, and yon between 107.566 of increased charge and dwellings for the artisan classes, I am struck with 129,750 of increased receipts. Now, on the increased this, that there is an elective body la London, and a receipts, ami cipcciaujso mum 01 mem aa coawiai very poweripi body, dealing - witn very large foraU, the balances, the Council would no doubt expect me to say something, and it is very difficult indeed forme to make a clear statement on the subject. However, I will trr and do my best. In the first instance we must bear in mind this, that - when we talk of deficits, deficit is an odious word. I hope it will always be so in this Couneil, but the word deficit here does not exercising very large powers the School Board. New is it not toleraniy evident teat until we bad this legislation of the - last Session, throwing out this random suggestion, Yon may apply this money to technical education," i it not qaite plain that tbe functions of this Couneil were intended to deal with health ar4 urban convenience, making the city more healthy, ami mean that we had not money to go on with, because if D0t education ? (Cheers.) It may be that ultimately you look at the cash paper of the week yon will find , we may make grants for technical education ; I d mat we nave goa a creuit at mis time 01 ntw,w not wisn at all to close tnat question, but I do say it with our treasurer. But the word deficit means this, i is not among the subject which the legislation of that when we Come to spend our money and also re - I the last Session imposed upon this Couneil. (Hear eeire our money there is a considerable number of I bear.) Now let me just say we expect to re accounts to which we have to carry these receipt and eeire from these new wine and spirit duties 140.000 these payments. As between tho general county j this ,ear. We have got the random offer of 140.000. but we have not the very slightest - pledge of its continuance next year. Now supposing we Impound a very considerable sum of money this year, while we are considering the subject of technical education ; tne only reason why I could swallow that rather unwelcome account and the special county aeeount there are differences I think very unfortunately, so far I see no necessity for the rrt there are differences between 7,500 to defray the cost of paving with wood the j the exchequer contribution account and the general .niijTheir of Tolt,r.1,,n...n.i.,A,.i . ! . - county acsonnt. of whieh the exchequer aeeount is a 3J per cent., the principal to be repaid by equal ""YV"1 . .

He wanted to know whether that fact was clear, because, if so, it wa no credit to their financial ability. (Hear, hear.) They had got their finances new into that state that unless they took money which was intended' for another object they must put another penny oa tha rate. He was not satisfied with the report, he was not satisfied with the way the rates were going np, and he was not satisfied with the rates being kept aa they were by money which had nothing to do with them. Mr. Cahtbill at considerable length criticised the financial arrangements of the council, maintaining that Lord Lingen had been disloyal to a resolution of the council that the system should be altered. Tha way in whieh the accounts had been presented was, ia his opinion, dishonest finance. Mr. Fou congratulated Lord Lingen and the eonr mittee on the very able report which ther had submitted.

There are two documents which I must assume that the Council are generally acquainted with. One is the original estimate which was presented in April last, and the other is the revised estimate which we have now got before us. It is that alteration of the estimate, - and that alteration of the estimate only, which is the subject - matter before us. Now, among some things which complicate these accounts, I think one of the first, and which is an enduring cause, i. the distinction between the general and the special county rate. The Administrative County of London ia one, and the Administrative County of London includes tue city, ine estimate ior tne year includes the 151,439, whieh leaves us a balance from that aeeount of 93.327. We expect this year to receive, besides, that balance of 112.932 which became doe to cs in 1889, and we expect to receive net from the united sources of licence and probate duties in tbe same year 237,068, anl we eipeet to receive through the beer and wine duties, net. within the same period, 140,000. making together 490,000, which, with payments that the meantime the amount received should be carried to a suspense account." Mr. BcACHCKorr seconded. Loud Liscrs thought the Couneil should aot forget that if they put this money to a suspense aeeount they would reduce the estimate to a deficit of AUb.uuu or 17.000 j that if they bad not received this 140,000 they should have had to raise tbe rate aggregate number of services for which we .have got to account amounting to 158,405, leaves transferable provide and the aggeaato estimated cost of them. This fc the general aeeount and in aid of tbe rates aggregate estimated cost must be raised somewhere in I 331,595, which, added to the' talanee, of 93,327, its locality, but the incidence of it varies a between I makes available to tbe rates 424,922. But this is the county outsjde the City and the county inside the j somewhat redaeed by an adverse balance which we City, and the special rate which yon might think, and . have to redress of 18,000, and if we add receipts wmcu a aiwaja taxi njjrcu - prone to uiiax, woma relate to the smaller area of the City does" not do so. The special rate is that which affects tha whole county, the general rate is tnat which aJIects the City only, and to which the City; along with our - .a h. .,v. ,u,e af thi T,'h.r 1 1 ' tor the six months which thev were now eaumiwiiTM m.j a" wacipairaai piece OI 1UCK Oa 110,600 he could not help feeling tempted "to say. Why in the world should they not give tha ratepayers the benefit of it ? ' selves, has to contribute. The total of all those outside the City have to pay to. Of that total rate the people inside the City do not pay for certain purposes, because for those purposes they rate themselves, but we have to pay an additional rate for those same purposes becsuse we have got to provide for them. If that is clearly borne in mind I think a good deal of the complication whieh we may have before us will prove more clear than perhaps it does at first sight. The estimate for the year, whieh ended in April last, made the general rate, which includes the City, 1250 per cent, of the pound, the special rate, which excludes the City, "75 per cent., and it made the total rate, which we outside the City have all got to pay, 13 - 25 per eent. The estimate therefore in the first six months tn April last was the halt of those percentages, and. then for the general rate 6250d. in the pound, for tbe special rate 375d. in the pound, and for the total rate 6'625d. in tha nnnTki. Now I do not propose on the r re sent aeration tn un tawand the estimates of April last I able to assure roe. and I wa very rlad to hear it. further than to make plain tbe reasons for such change and I aa quite sure that this Council woald not wish as we have now to consider.
