In consequence of this disturbance a deputation from tho directors of tho Dock Companies waited on Mr J. Monro, 0.8, Chief Commissioner of Police. Mr Monro declined to take action on the grounds that his subordinates had reported that matters wore going on as smoothly as oould possibly be expected. The molesting has occurred at other docks as well as the Albert, but the disturbers of tho peace were promptly paid off.

Many of the blacklegs are terrified at the hostile action of tho strikers and have abandoned their work.
