[per press association.] London, July 10. The police are forming a Council to advocate their demands. Bow street is quiet. It is rumored the Prince of Wales is interceding with the Home Secretary m favor of the force. A hundred postmen belonging to the parcel department at Mount Pleasant were dismissed for attacking blacklegs. A meeting of two thousand postmen at Clerkenwell resolved to strike before the first delivery to day unless blacklegs are withdrawn. The Department is willing to do so if the men will promise not to strike, but they decline. Sir Arthur Blackwood, Secretary to tbe Post-office, personally discharged the riotous hands at Mount Pleasant, and afterwards proceeded to the central office, where the blacklegs were working alongside the regular postmen, guarded by policemen. Owing to his influence with the men they succumbed and delivered the mails. At a meeting of a thousand sorters a resolution was passed condemning any concession on the part of the Union unless the contingent demands were conceded as well as the main points m the dispute. In accordance with a resolution passed at a meeting of Unionists, 100 postmen of the Eastern and Northern districts have struck, and a procession comprising 300 postmen will march to the West End with a view of gaining adherents. Melbourne, July 11. The Associated Steamship owners are organising mutual support m view of possible trouble with the Marine Officers' Association.
