It has been definitely decided that all the hotels must close at 6.30 pm, Apart from the augmentation of the local police, over a hundred specials, oompriaing ' commercial men of the town, have been sworn in for duty, and it is hoped that in view of tbe preparations made to cope with the trouble, there will riot be any further demonstrations. Many Germans, as well as 'Scotchmeni Englishman and Irishmen whose names appear a bit foreign, continue to receive anonymous letters. WARNING TO FLAXMILLERS. It is at Palmerston North, however, where trouble is anticipated, on Saturday night, and so tense is the feeting that Mr Robinson eeoretary of the Flf»zmillers' Union, bas cir cularised all the flaxmillers in Manawatu, urging the men in their own interests to refrain from ooming to Palmerston on Saturday evening, or to religiously avoid being drawn into such an affair.
