SYDNEY, February 9
Householders in the city and suburbs had a short supply of meat to-day. The employees in most butchers' and small goods shops ■ failed to turn to, demanding a 48-hours' week, and an increase of 10s weekly. In a few cases the demands were conceded, but in others the butchers are making shift, with
assistance of members of their families/ The unusual sight of, girls and women carving joints was common. Altogether 400 butchers, including carters, are out. ..
Some city shops are closed. The secretary of tne Master Butchers' Association claims, that, the men have committed a' deliberate breach of the Industrial Act, and says all will be prosecuted. i
