Pirrie's Election as Lord Mayor Assured

The unanimous nomination of Alderman Pirrie to be Lord Mayor of Belfast for next year has increased the hope that, as one of the most energetic members of the firm of Messrs. Harland and Wolff, he may be able to do something to bring the dispute to an end. Mr. Pirrie's unanimous nomination, of course, insures his unanimous election at the public meeting of the corporation to be held next Monday.

G. W. Wolff, M. P., has returned to Belfast, but it is understood that he will remain only a few days, and that his visit has no connexion with the dispute.
