By Eleoteio Telegraph,—Copyright,] (Per Press Association.) LONDON, September 7. (Receii ed September 8,1889, at 12.15 p.m.) The additional demands of the men have been conceded, and the dock companies have agreed to pay the casual hands fid an hour after January 1 next if the strikers resume on Monday, and guarantee not to molest the laborers now at work. The companies declare, that owing to the grave assertions made by the Lord Mayor, Cardinal Manning, and Bishop Temple the public peace has been endangered, and that the companies can no longer freely exercise their unfettered judgment. They also complain that they have been obliged to yield to outside pressure, which is a dangerous departure in disputes between employers and workmen. They add that they have been largely influenced in their decision by the assurance of shipowners and merchants that the public are willing to hear increased charges. LONDON, September 8. (Received September 9,1889, at 12.30 p.m.) The strikers have published a manifesto refusing to grant the dock companies better terms than those granted to the wharfingers and stevedores. The sailors and firemen will resume work for anybody granting the laborers their demands. The lightermen will also resume if an advance to 6s per day is conceded.
