At Lyttelton yesterday the wharf laborers refused to discharge cargo from the Tekapo. The vessel was discharged by permanent railway hands. Enquiries are being anxiously made by shipbrokers and others for carriage of produce to Australia. The Lyttelton wharf laborers have resolved to call all hands out on strike, and at 8.15 p.m. yesterday the whole of the wharf laborers on the steamers Wakatipu (discharging coals to the Mamari) and the Penguin (receiving cargo for Wellington) were called out on strike. Last night the wharves m Lyttelton were clear of all cargo workers and the town was quiet. At 7.30 p.m. yesterday, the officers m the employ of the Union Company's steamers Beautiful Star 2, Tekapo 4, Penguin 3, Wakatipu 3, Dingadeu 2; total 14, met on board the s.a. Penguin to consider what action they would take, and they unanimously agreed to go out on strike when the first of the non-union labor was put on to work the ships.
