I TWO GREAT STRIKES. I HUNGARIAN RAILWAY EMPLOYEES CAPITULATE. Two strikes of magnitude and importance are proceeding on the Continent, those of the railway workers in Hungary and the French Mercantile Marine. In the case of the former, intercontinental traffic has been seriously impeded, but Count Tisza, the Hungarian Premier, has from the first adopted a strong attitude, reminiscent of Mr. Irving in the case of the labour strike in Victoria recently. One thousand arrests have been made since the middle of last week, and it was proposed to call in reservists of the army and supplant the 60:000 men out on strike. Reuter reports that as a result the strike com- mittee have announced that the men are prepared to accept the terms of the Government and return to work immediately. A deputation was sent to communicate the strikers' decision to the Minister of Commerce. I FRENCH MERCANTILE MARINE. In the case of the French strike it appears that certain officers of the merchant marine having been put ashore at Marseilles, in consequence of a complaint made by the syndicate of maritime conscripts, the association of captains of the mer- chant marine, officers of the coasting trade, and engineer officers of the merchant marine decided to go on strike until the officers who were put on shore have been restored to their commands. .-I-Messages to this effect were sent to all the French ports-Toulon, Havre, Brest, &c.—all of which have expressed sympathy and solidarity. As a result the shipping companies at Mar- seilles have decided o lay up their vessels, and have landed their crews. The naval reservists are ready to return to their ships as soon as arrange- ments can be made for officering the vessels, whether with officers of the navy or with officers of the merchant marine. No untoward incident has occurred on the quays. The Ocean-going Captains' Association and the masters of coasting vessels alike protest against the intention of the Government to place naval officers at the disposal of the companies for the maintenance of the mail services, and threaten that if this is done they will carry the movement to other ports. The tug companies have notified the shipping companies that the officers of their boats have left them.
