THE LABOR TROUBLES.

[Br Eleotbio Teleobaph.—GOPlTßiaHT.l TPeb Pbkss Association, i

LONDON, September 17.

(Received September 18, 1889, at 5 p.m.)

The strikers continue to molest the " blacklegs," and to-day 250 of tho latter were chased from Bhed to shed at the Albert docks, finally being penned in a corner ; but b. posse of policemen prevented actual violence taking place, although the aggressors numbered 1,000. In consequence of this disturbance a deputation from the directors of the dock companies waited on Mr J. Monro, C.8., Chief Commissioner of Police, requesting him to disperse the rioters. Mr Monro declined to take action, on the grounds that his subordinates had reported that matters were going on as smoothly as could possibly be expected. The molesting has occurred at other docks as well as the Albert, but the disturbers of the peace were promptly paid off. It is believed that loafers and not genuine dock hands are responsible for the outrages, At one of the docks to-day thirty "blacklegs," who were hotly pursued by 150 strikers, narrowly escaped being killed by the dock engine. Many of the " blacklegs " are terrified at the hostile action of the strikers and have abandoned their work.

Two thousand fresh men from the provinces are already competing for work at the docks.

Tho leaders of the strikers are using every endeavor to induce men to adhere to the terms agreed on between them and the dock companies.
