CRISIS IN THE SHIPBUILDING TRADE. Owing to the prospect of a stoppage of the shipbuilding wade of the North- east Coast, Sir W. Gray and Co. and other large shipbuilding firms in Hartlepool and the northern districts have oountermanded all orders for ship plates and shipbuilding material generally. This is likely to seriously affect the steel and iron trades generally- The loag-threatened strike of the unskilled workmen commenced in the shipyards at the Hartlepools on Wednesday, and work generally will in a few days come to a complete stand- still, throwing between 6,000 and 7,000 men out of employment at Hartlepool alone. The present indications poini to & protracted struggle. A later telegram from Hartlepool states that the bulk of the labourers resumed work after breakfast on receipt of a telegram from their secretary stating tha.t the notices must be post- poned for a week pending a fresh ballot. I Mr. Jones, manacrer to Sir W. Gray and Co., states that the dispute as far ae it concerns the drillers, crane men, and engine men, has been settled. The ballot of the Clyde shipwrights shows a large majority against accepting the employers' offer of ad. advance per how, beginning on April 1, acd for adhering to t.he former demand of id. per hour. Should the id. not be coil ceded a strike is expected.
