BtandiDR at tbe curb, and drove to a
secluded place in tbe southern suburbs
of tbe city and repes edly outiaged

Cunningham was too far gone to be
able to speak, and when seen
today neither of them would
talk. Maber, however, lavt night said
that Cunningham was tbe one who
com mi Hod tbe deed, and that he saw
him dolt. Mrs. Gutting was enceinte
and Is in a precarious condition today.
It is thought, however, that she will
survive he) Injuries. She said today
that aha was sitting in a room facing
the street when she saw two men
drive up in a peddler's wagon. Tbey
came to the door and offered to sell
to her their wares. A short conversa
tion followed, and at its termination
tbey both seised her and carritd her
out to the wagon, warning her in the
meantime to make no move or resist
ance. Tbey drove her some distance
from the house and into the suburbs,
where she says they both repeatedly
outraged her.

mittee of the Whole and attend the
Trades Union conference and that in
the meantime the congress commit

to this manner of forming an amalga

suggestions were adopted end the

J. R. Scott, of Toronto, wai elected

made a motion that the prees be ex

ference. This point was discussed the greitor
part of the a'ternoon, being presented
in itsvariouj pbasis, and finally the
motion was agreed to by a vote of 18
to 10. The adoption of the motion
created considerable ill feeling, aud
suggested the inquiry on the part of a
delegate whether thore delegates who
represented papers snd were making
reports for the eame should be allowed
to remain. The secretary aaggested
that all who could show credentials of
membership in any trades union
should be allowed on the floor. Tbe
re potters began to present working
cards and other certificates of mem
bership, seeing which, the president
suggested that the motion adopted
would not porsibly exclude any one.
It wai finally agreed to adm't all mem
