London, September 16

The strikers who have been reengaged are, contrary to the guarantee given, molesting the blacklegs engaged by tho Dock Companies, especially those at tho Surrey and Albert Docks. Many ot tho blacklegs were stoned and ducked. The Mansion House Committee and Burns had a conference, at which it was agreed to uso influence to obtain a rigid observance of the terms of the agreement. Many of the strikers repudiate the right of their leaders to pledge them to the amicable treatment of the blacklegs. Burns, m addressing tho men, advised a patient policy, and ho threatened, if the Dock Companies violated the agreement, to organise another strike, which would paralyse the trade of London. It is reported that tho object of Burns' visit to Australia is to organise m the colonies tho preliminary of a strike on a more extensive scale. There is a general depression m business circles with regard to the future. It is stated that tho railway employes are organising a Btrike for ten and a half hours. The strikers complain that many of the Dock officials are treating them vindictively and unfairly. A large number of stevedores have refused to work except with members of the Union.
