THE BOTHWELL CASTLE DISPUTE.
THE COMPROMISE ACCEPTED,
It is our agreeable duty to announce that the dispute between the Federated Seamen’s Union and those connected with the steamer Bothwell Castle, said dispute being in regard to the employment of Asiatic labor on the vessel, has terminated peacefully. The executive of the Seamen’s Union gave full consideration to the compromise offered by the Union Steam Ship Company, tho terms of which were stated in yesterday’s issue, and being satisfied that the offer made by the company was a fair and reasonable one, and as full a concession as could be expected, it was resolved to accept it. The Union Company have been apprised of this acceptance, and there is an end of the trouble.
The arrangement is that the Bothwell Castle is to proceed from Lyttelton to Sydney with the coolies at work—we believe that she has already sailed—and that the coolies are to be knocked o(T on the return of the vessel to Lyttelton in about seventeen day’s time. Most of the coolies are Lascars, and we understand that they will be taken back to Calcutta when the steamer returns there at the expiration of the term of her charter in September,
