[by telegraph.] Tjmaru, To-day. The adjourned meeting of the unemployed was held to-day. The men proceeded in a body to interview his Worship the Mayor re laying the waterpipes. The Mayor said he could not proceed with this work until fittings arrived from Home, but in the meantime any man could have a job at stone-breaking if he liked. A list was then prepared of those unemployed, stating whether married or single, and number of family, if any, and how long out of work. This list Mr Turnbull, the member for the district, promised to take to Wellington with him to-day, and to urge upon the Government the necessity of taking immediate steps to relieve the distress. The unemployed meet again to-morrow.
