On Saturday afternoon a most successful meeting was held in the Haverthwaite Schoolroom, under the presidency of Mr. W. SPEIGHT (Sons of Temperance), supported by vice-president, Mr. M. WILLIAMSON (Mechanics), and practically every Friendly Society in the North Lonsdale area was represented.
 One of the chief matters for arrangement was to properly represent the case of woodcutters at inquiry to be held at Ulverston on Tuesday under section 66 of the National Insurance Act.
 It was further agreed that all members recommend to their tents, lodges or courts the advisability of uniformation in regard to hours to be observed for members when on sick fund. It was arranged to consider at the next meeting a scheme for reciprocal action between societies in visiting brothers when receiving sick allowance.
 A most interesting report of work of the Lancashire Insurance Committee was given by Alderman S. TAYLOR, of Birkdault. On the invitation of Mr. TAYLOR, tea was served by Mr. G. CLARKE, of the Angler’s Arms.
 Votes of thanks were accorded Mr. TAYLOR and the President. The next meeting is to be held at Penny Bridge in October.
