AUCKLAND;, April 15. The Niagara is still held up so far as the discharge of 'her cargo is concerned, and the Auckland Waterside Workers' Union is adamant in its decision not to -work the vessel until the period of seven days after the development of the last case on board the vessel has run its course. This period expires to-morrow, and according to officials of the union it is probable tho men will commence the unloading of the vessel .some time to-morrow.

Meantime the ltakanoa, in regard to which a similar course of action was taken, is being worked, the period of seven days having elapsed this morning. Not a little resentment is felt on the part of officials of 'the union at what they regards as an attempt of the Public Health Department to suggest that the precautionary measures the union has adopted are in excess of the requirements of the case. Humours having gone the rounds that new cases of disease were being discovered, in Auckland, Dr. Maguire, medical superintendent of the hospital, stated that the only cases that • had been admitted to the hospital were occasional patients suffering from the disease in a mild form and that there had been" nothing to indicate that these were increasing in number.
