CIVIL SERVICE STRIKES.
PROHIBITED IN FRANCE. GENERAL STRIKE ORGANISED. PARIS, April 5. The proposal of the Premier (M. Clemenceau) to legalise Civil servants' associations, but denying the right to strike, led to a great protest meeting in Paris.
Many of the postal and other State servants are fraternising with the Revolutionary Confederation of Labour, and many subversive speeches have been delivered.
A secret mixed committee of 12, representing Civil servants and ordinary trade unionists, has been formed to organise a general strike, with a view to compelling Parliament to yield to the extreme demands that are being made.
