THREATEN TO CLOSE THE PORT WOULD BE PROTEST AGAINST DISORGANIZED STATE OF THE COURTS London, June is learned that an important, move is Sunder consid- eration that may lead to the transfer- ring to Plymouth of all the trans-At- lantic steamers, which now sail from Southampton. All 1ne shipping com- panies, using Southampton as a port, have buen so seriously hampered by a series of vexatious strikes, promot- ed by the Seafarers' Union, that they have ,heen consulting about closing. When the Seafarers' Union was start- ed as a rival to the and Firemen's Union, the original organi- zation was supported by lbe shipping companies, because it became all- powerful about Southampton, caus- ing immense loss and damage to both the port and the shipping by its reck- less proceedings. If fire statement-to close the port is put Southampton will, be practically ruined. GLASGOW GIVES WOMAN B. P.
