' * ; Auckland,- June 2. The Bakers' Union have resolved to assist the tailoresses on strike. The master ironworkers and farriers have formed an Association, Mr J. Patterson being appointed President.

The master ironworkers and farriers have agreed to adopt the eight hours system.

A curious difficulty has arisen in regard to the dispute between Garrett Bros, and the Bootmakers' Union. Garrett Bros. recently informed their hands that, in future they would employ none but Unionists.. ■ The hands, were advised to join the Union without delay, and.they expressed their willingness to do so.l- X seems, however, that five of Garrett's men are liable to fines amounting to.-nearly £10 each, and cannot pay this money, whilst Garrett Bros, cannotj discharge them, as they are under agreement with them for a certain period. j Wellington, June 2. . The ironmasters have expressed their : willingness to give .the men the advance asked for, provided it is general throughout the colony.

from the Lyttelton Branch of the Federate Wharf Laborers' Union and the 'Executive of the Canterbury Branch of Railway Servants' Society it was agreed that the latter should strongly urge that all casual laborers at seaports join the Wharf Laborers Union, as that body can afford better protection than railway servants do at present.
