Toronto, Ont., Oct 2. The strike of
Canadian Pacific railway telegraphers is
In much the same position so far as t f is
jxiiDt is concerned, but there is believed
to be considerable more danger of a sym
pathetic strike. Grand Trunk officials
are uneasy In regard to the Intentions of
their own dispatchers and telegraphers.
A strike on their part is regarded as not
Improbable. A sympathetic strike on the
part of Canadian Pacific train hands also
1 bring talked of.
Superintendent Leonard Fays he has
received applications from about eighty
telegraphers, some of them from the
Vnlted States, and thirty of these have
been assigned to positions along the
road. Dispatches from Montreal, Que
bec, Ottawa, and other points report
the situation practically unchanged.
Passenger trains are running from one
to eight hours behind time, but freight
trains are almost at a standstill.
Will Other t'ninns Also Strike?
The question now discussed regard
Ins the strike is, will the railway or
ganizations Join the telegraphers in
their tiKht against the Canadian Pacific:
railway? Both the company and the
strikers are awaiting the decision of
the -nKineer3, conductors and train
men as to the policy which they will
adopt. When the train came .in from
North . Bay over five hours late the
conductor told a reporter that the op
erators were out all the way from
North Bay to Port Arthur, and that
during all the time he was waiting
in North Bay, about twenty-nine hours,
only one freight had been sent west
and two east.
Smypathy for the Striker.
The trade and labor unions in the
rlty are in sympathy with the strikers
and the fact that American operators
arc coming into the country to till the
vacant positions intensities the feeling.
It is proposed to urge on the local
members of parliament the necessity of
making without delay such regula
tions as will prohibit the Importation of
No End to the LeadTllIe Strike.
T-iradville, Colo., Oct. 2. Kvery possibil
ity of ending the strike by arbitration or
other nmicable means has disappeared, for
the timo iwing at least, the Cloud City
Miners' Union having voted In regular
meeting to continue indefinitely its fleht,
for tinifurm wages of $3 per day for ail of
the men in all the mines. Two hundred
ineniliers of the union have withdrawn
and will seek work. Tho mine operator

Philadelphia, Oct. 2. The American
rif this week prints an editorial with
the caption: Sewall or Watson Which
or Neithelr?" in which it calls on both
of those gentlemen in the interest of the
election of Bryan to withdraw in order
that Chairman Jones may name a can
didate who will be acceptable to all In
terests. Barker, the famous silver ad
vocate, writes: "Bryan is acceptable to
all. But Sewall is not. Neither is Wat
son . We impugn neither the Ameri
canism of Mr. Sewall nor Mr. Watson,
but neither i3 recognized by all parties
as the man for the crisis. Mr. Sewall
Is not acceptable to the Populists. The
Iemocrats will not take Mr. Watson.
What, then, are we to do? We answer:
Takethem both down. Put up a candi-
Jate aceptable toall Americans.
Ooe Not Nominate a Man.
"Such a man can certainly be found.
Who that man is, is not for us to say.
It is not for Democrats or Populists or
bimetallic Republicans. The man for
the place must not be a candidate of
any party; he must be the candidate of
all. It is for the trusted leaders of our
wage-earninK classes, in unison with
the leaders of the Democratic and Pop
ulist parti; 3 and of the bimetallic Re
publicans, to say who that man shall
Ik. .The election is only five weeks off:
but there is yet time to take down both
Messrs. Sewall and Watson and put U
a new man, who will stand for all
Americans. If this is done, nothing can
prevent the election of Mr. Bryan by
an overwhelming vote."
