[r>ER PRESS ASSOCIATION.]
Cgristchurch, August 13. The refusal of Whitconibe and Tombs fco accept arbitration has had the effect of reviving apprehension as to possible consequences. It his also had the effect of embittering the feeling .of antagonism to the firm whteh' the labor l party generally entertain. The conclusion to which the latest phase of the trouble leads—viz., that it should nob be m the power of & disputant m trade matters to refuse to submit to arbitration—has been drawn by many persons. The opinion 'is pretty freely expressed amongst men who have to do with mercantile concerns, that the decision of last night's meeting of the firm's shareholders'represents th 6 feelings and sympathies of the bulk of the mercantile community here. j DtJNEDIX, A\lgtlßt 13. There is absolutely nothing to be got from the leaders of the Labor movement as to the next step to be taken m the dispute with Whitcombe and Tombs. Mr. Millar, Secretary of the MaritimeJCouncil, states that everything now will be m. came-a, and nothing will be divulged until the Council take whatever action is decided on.
