SYDNEY, February 25,
The ironworkers' dispute was discussed at a Cabinet meeting, but it is entirely overshadowed by the meat strike. The trouble is not only amongst the foundry employees, but the builders, bricklayers, and carters will be involved at the end of the week. The Employers' Association has forwarded a letter to Mr Holme ■to the effect that any proposal for a settlement will have to be made for the whole body of tho strikers,,.as'the masters will .have no piecemeal settlement:
It is estimated that 60. foundries are affected, and that 8000 men are idle.
