From The Adelaide Advertiser 2 October 1901:-
"London, October 1. The Grimsby fishermen, who have been out on strike for some months against the wages paid by the steam trawling companies, and who lately became so riotous that troops had to be sent to quell the disturbances have gone back to work.
The employers have agreed to submit the dispute to be arbitrated on by the Board of Trade, and the Earl of Yarborough has induced the men to resume their employment pending the decision.
Lord Yarborough is Vice-Admiral of Lincolnshire, and in virtue of his office has much influence with the men.
The strike has been a terrible disaster to Grimsby, which is the greatest fishing town in the United Kingdom, and there is universal satisfaction expressed at the happy result of his lordship's mediation"
