An embargo on tho delivery and re ceipt of all freight was announced yesterday by the railway and express companies-on account of the railroad strike, and unless tho trouble ends or the situation Improves within a short time New York will be confronted with the most serious situation the city ever has known with regard to food supplies.

Representatives here of the packing houses were agreed that tho difficulty would be Ironed out before famine con ditions resulted.

The strike Is likely to be worse to-diiy. There are Indications, however, thut It may end as quickly and in as mysterious a fashion as it began. The enthusiasm, of the throngs of strikers that choked a half dozen halls In Jersey City lust nltjlit was chilled effectively Ivy news from Chi cago that the strike Is waning there. A strike vote was taken by the em ployees of the Hudson and Manhattan tube service at a meeting last night in ' Hancock Hall, Jersey City. Tho meeting ended at midnight, when the men del a red In favor of walking out at "i o'clock this morning. It was said that the decision to quit work was unanimous. The outlook for the New Jersey commuter was not encouraging Inst night. The various roads across the Hudson Issued statements la which they nssured the public that they would do their best but not to ex Iiect too much. Some of the rail roads admitting that their passenger service was almost If not quite dead, declared that they would uo nil switchmen they could muster to move food trains. Further than that they expect lo do little. The strlko has spread to other rail road workers. Tho flremon on tho Krle Railroad went out In largo num bers last night.
