[By Electric Telegraph. Copyright.]

[Per Press Association. |

LONDON, November 2. (Rocoivcd November i, 1889, at noon.)

The Dockers' Union is strong enough to virtually exclude non-unionists from the docks. Out of the council of nine a majority of seven will have power to declare a strike. The formation of unions of unskilled laborers is increasing throughout the United Kingdom. The tram strikers at Shields and the London 'bus and tramway men are gradually securing concessions. The London 'bus men demand that the day's labor be restricted to twelve hours, including two of relief, and the abolition of fines.

The wharfingers and lightermen arc disputing about the meaning of Lord Brassey's award as to night-work. The men insist on a settlement at once, and have decided that night-work shall consist of one job only. The masters refuse to agree, and Lord Brasgey supports them. Blacklegs are not allowed to join the Union, and the latter has decided to call the men out on strike on Monday if their demands are not agreed to. ANTWERP, November 3. (Reoeived November 4, 1889, at 1 p m.j The dock laborers have struck in consequence of being called on to do two hours' extra work without pay.
