Petone Woollen Mills.
[per press association.] Wellington, May 21. The long standing dispute between the Woollen Company and their hands was settled to-day. At a conference between the Directors, the Trades and Labor Council, and the Maritime Council, the Directoi's agreed to take back at once 40 or 50 of the operatives now out, mostly young people, and make room for others by discharging hands, where there are several members of one family engaged, married with husbands in full work, etc. This is to be done in favor of the operatives now out, who are badly in want of work. Both Unions are to be disbanded, and a new one formed. The arrangement was accepted as satisfactory by all parties.
