-111 THE TAILORS' STRIKE. The seventh week of the strike was entered upon on the 3rd of June, without any prospect of its early ter- mination, both parties remaining firm in their respective positions. The men express themselves as highly pleased and gratified at the liberal way in which remit- tances are being sent to them from all parts of the country and they attribute this in a great measure to the avowed determifiation of the masters to break up their union if possible, and also to their refusal of arbi- tration, as it is well known many of the trades' unions have from the above cause contributed much larger sums than they would have done if it had been merely ir-, support of the strike. The committee on Saturday, although the number on the funds .had been increased from the previous week, owing to the strike of the military tailors, were again enabled to pay the full strike allowance to every man and Nyomen entitled to receive it. The picketing system is carried on as actively as ever, and as fast as the masters succeed in obtaining the services of non-unionists from the country, the great majority of them are drawn out again by the union. On Saturday out of a dozen men obtained by a leading member of the masters' association, no less than eight were drawn out, enrolled in the union, and placed upon picket over other shops and this is being repeated day after day. It is stated that another attempt to bring the committees of the masters and men together, with the view to a settlement, is about to be made in an influential quarter. A project is also in contemplation by several gentlemen who take an interest in co-operative movements, to subscribe £ 500 each for the purpose of selecting a number of the best workmen on strike, and opening several co-operative tailoring establishments in the metropolis.
