The strikers who have been re-engaged are, contrary to the guarantee given, molesting the “ blacklegs ” engaged by the dock companies, especially those at Surrey and Albert docks. Many of the “blacklegs ” were stoned and ducked. The Mansion House Committee and Burns had a conference, at which it was agreed to use influence to obtain a rigid observance of the terms of the agreement. Many of the strikers repudiate the right of their leaders to pledge them to amicable treatment of “ blacklegs.” Bjirns, in addressing the men, advised a patient policy, and he threatened if the dock companies violated the agreement to organise another strike, which would paralyse the trade of London. It is reported that the object of Burns’s visit to Australia is to organise in the colonies the preliminaries of a strike on a more extensive scale, There is generally a depression in business circles with regard to the future.
