The Sleeping Four.
Paris. - A delightful story went
the rounds of Paris official circles
during the week of Aug. 3. It runs
At a meeting of the inter-allied
committee last week there was a
question what time they would re
sume in the afternoon. Signor Tit
toni did not want it too early, be
cause he liked to have his siesta earl}
in the afternoon. \ Mr. Lansing diC
iot want it too late, for he wante(
to have his drive in the Bois and thel
his siesta before dinner. M. . Clem
enceau then summnnied up. "The meet
ing will be at 3," he said. "Sig
nor Tittoni can sleep before it, Mr
Lansing can sleep after it, and Mr.
Balfour and I can sleep during it."-

i lThe congress further passed a res
v tolution, by 131 votes to 50, accordingi
inc:reased powers to the national
u- executive, to ensure joint action in
industrial and political matters. Mr.
O'Lehane (drapers' assistants), who
proposed the motion, said it was pro

tthe ultimate object of having a single
all-inclusive Irish Workers' union,
(lione authority to be responsible forI
financing and controlling all the;
