THE POLICE STRIKE.
THE EXCITEMENtf SUBSIDING.
[per pkess association.] London, July 9. Twenty-one constables have been suspended and others sullenly proceed to duty. The dismissed constables have petitioned the Commissioiner to be reinstated. On Change, all stocks are depressed owing to the strike among the policemen. , . The approaches to Bow street are guarded ,by old and tried c6nstables, and a strong detachment of mounted police patrol m the vicinity. There is an immence crowd m the streets, aud the mob is noisy and aggressive, but less criminal than yesterday. Since commencement of the strike some of the troopers have been roughly handled, j and several were injured by stones and bottles thrown from among the crowd. The police used their batons freely, and numerous arrests; were made. The constables are obedient to command, and the excitement is quieting down. To-day's work shows a complete failure of organisation on the part of the police.
