End of the Printing Stoppage

The resumption of full working, after the settlement 'of the dispute between the London Society of Compositors and the London Master Printers' Association, came too late to enable • the Spectator to appear in completely normal form this week. Thus, in its end as in its beginning, the effect of the dispute has been to inflict inconvenience and loss on the weekly journals and their readers, who are not parties to it but only sufferers from it. But this week's Spectator, although still 'below normal size, contains nearly all the usual features, and the first copies will be on sale at the usual time. It is still unfortunately possipe that some readers will receive their copies a few hours late, and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. Next week all these troubles will be over.
