The Boilermakers' Executive have determined to suspend the London Committee owing to the refusal of their members to return to work-when ordered by the union. " THE EIGHT HOURS PRINCIPLE. The Right Hon. R. J. Seddon, addressing the Eight Hours' Union sports gathering on the Basin Reserve at Wellington yesterday, said that from the position he held it was not for him to express an opinion one way or the other upon the Home engineering question, but we would like to see the workers at Home enjoying the game boon as did those of New Zsaland. There had been some opposition to the Eight Hours Bill, but they were gradually overcoming the objection, and he thought that at any rate they should affirm the principle, at least aa to the matter of overtime. He was satisfied it should be paid for at the rate of time and a-half. He hoped that some day a Minister of the Crown would be able to announce at the E'ght Hours Demonstration that a complete Eight Hours Bill had found a place on the Statute Book.
