It has been a aubject of general conjecture why the strlke should be c-onflneri BOlely to the electrlc linea The reaaon is that so far none of the em? ployea on the cable and horsecar llnes have Jolned the new rallroad men's union. and no effort has b.-en made bj John lf, Paraona to garher them into tbe organlzatlon. As tlie strlke is b<-ing foiight on purely organlzatlon linea, It was declded advlaable to call out only thoeo men who are represented In tha union. Another raaaOfl why Mr. Paraona dld not attempt to tie up tbe Broadway line is that tho Metropolltan company would have taken advantage of th.- atoppage Of trafllc to put ln new slota on the Broadway llne. The sl>.ts now In use ar>- con s: lerably worn. and wlil have to be replaced before the uiidi-rground trolley .-ars can bo put ln opera? tlon.
