THE LOCK-OUT AT BRUNNERTON.
Geeymouth, August 11. The coal difficulty is unchanged. Intense public feeling is being rapidly developed. Scores of men are lounging about the wharf, as there is nothing for them to do. The Midland Railway deviai tion at Lake Brunner is also exciting keen interest up ,the Grey Valley. Weixington, August 11. | People here, m view of the difficulty at the Grey mines and m fear of a coal famine, are laying m extensive supplies for household purposes, while some have : srone to the extent of telegraphing to ! Dunedin for coal. As ifc was found that an expense of £6000 was necessary to effect improvements at the Wallsend mines, and m view of the labor difficulties
that mine has t been practically permanently closed. I learn that so far as the Coalpit Heath and Brunner mines are concerned, all work with the exception of pumping has been stopped for the past three weeks. Should the strike extend to Westport, the harbor works will most probably be closed, and this will mean throwing out of employment three or four hundred additional hands.
