England has been wracked by strikes in the past few years as groups of workers previously unrepresented have organized and fight for better working conditions. A transportation strike in London, England affecting dock workers began May 24th. Some work continued at the docks but things generally were at a standstill. Many ships are delayed and unable to discharge cargo. Much meat and other perishable foodstuffs will be a total loss. The police are at the docks inspecting idle cargo and keeping order.
On May 31, 1912 these London police found a live monkey in a cargo hold.
