THE STRIKERS' PROCESSION

FURTHER CONCESSIONS WANTED.

ONLY A TEMPORARY SETTLEMENT.

[By Eleotbio Telegraph—Copyright.] [Per Press Association. |

LONDON, September 16,

(Reoeived September 17,1889, at noon.;

At a meeting of the strikers at Hyde Park an Australian flag was waved from the platform, and surrounded by flowers. It preceded all the flags in the procession. Four thousand were working in the docks when the strike ended.

Though Mr Burns denies that the strike is connected with the Socialists, the organs of the latter claim the result as a triumph for their principles.

The leaders make no concealment of their intention to organise the different kinds of labor in preparation general strike next summer, unless further concessions are made. It is asserted that a number of strikers were kept on good pay, and that Mr Burns did not give his services without remuneration. In support of the latter statement it is alleged he was able to spend money lavishly during the time of the strike.

The dock owners assert that the London papers published garbled accounts of the strike, which were cabled to Australia in order to court popularity, while the correspondents of the American papers sent both sides of the question. Mr Burns boasts that the result cf the movement is the deathblow to the domination of capital over labor.
