Labor Troubles

[PEK ritESS ASSOCIATION. I Oamabu, September 8. The Wakatipu arrived from Lyttelton at 8 a.m. The lumpers were immediately called out, and came to a man. One hundred and fifty non-union laborers available were persuaded not to work. The carters and storemen also struck. One hatch was worked by three or four non-union laborers and crew, the railway men working the trucks. It is stated the vessel ia inefficiently manned, the majority of the crew being inexperienced farm hands. No disturbances took place save a little jeering from larrikins, the Unionists holding aloof. It is rumored the crew will be persuaded to strike. Arrived—Margaret Galbraith, from Auckland. The Secretary of the Lumpers' Union wired to the Maritime Council to know if the vessel is to be worked.
