THE RUMOUR DISCREDITED. (By Telegraph.—Press Association.) WELLINGTON, this day. A telegram from Wanganui regarding the possibility of a strike of coalminers is discredited in official circles here. It was pointed out to a "Post" reporter that, even if the rumour had any foundation in, fact, the present would-be most inopportune for a strike from a miner's point of view, as there must be fully 400 men out of work at Millerton. The Minister for Mines states that, as far as he knows, good relations exist at the mines. - , . A CABMAN KILLED. CHBISTCHURCH, this day.
