[Peb United Press Association.! PALMERSTON NORTH, October 25. The hitch which occurred in connection with the Palmerston-Ashurst railway contract has not been settled, and the work still remains stopped. The workmen are protected under the Workman's Wages Act, and may obtain an injunction to prevent the Government from paying over any money due 1o the contractor. The Government have in hand about LSOO due to the contractor for last month's work, and it is understood that several workmen have already taken steps to have this impounded. The seven days' notice required by law has been served on the contractor to proceed with the work, and unless he accedes it is probable that the Government will step in and call for fresh tenders.
