THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUN-TELEGRAM, THURSDAY, AUGUST 6, 1903, MONSTER STRIKE MAY END SOON Mechanics of Canadian Pa 7 cific Railroad Believe the Company Will Give In. TWELVE THOUSAND OUT. MOST COMPLETE TIEUP IN HIS TORY OF CANADIAN RAILWAY OPERATION IS NOW ON COM PANY TO STAND BY BOARD. Winnipeg, Man., Aug. 6. Trade un ionism in Canada has given its defy to the Canadian Pacific Railway. With out any untoward incident or ostenta tious show, the mechanics and kindred workmen, Wednesday quit work, and all shop's, big and little, on this great system are idle. . It is estimated that 12,000 men went out, the largest number being 2,200 in Montreal and 1,500 here. Two thous and men left work between Ft. Wil liam and Vancouver. Even old work men, In line for pensions, went home and it seems to be the most complete tie-up in the history of railway shops in Canada. Every wheel in the shops stopped and every fire died out when the whistle blew several Bhort blasts, caretakers and shop foremen alone be ing left to put the places in shape for the period of idleness bound to fol low. Yesterday afternoon the men gath ered at their halls to appoint commit tees to carry on the strike. It was decided not to appoint pickets at pres ent. It is known, however, that the company has several hundred old c Mintry mechanics in "cold storage" -':o will be brought to the scene of .tion at once. Some are optimistic enough to be lieve that all will be over this week and the men back at work on Friday, relying upon the supposed capitulation of the company. The grievance of the Canadian Pa cific men is that the finding of the board appointed at the request of the men should, in the company's opinion, be binding on the men. The Canadian Pacific not only did not seek arbitra tion, but, believing the board to be hostile to their interests, withdrew their representative, and the Govern ment appointed another arbitrator to represent the company, who therefore was not officially accepted by the com pany. Despite these facts, t' " board Bo constituted gave a finding, which was accepted by the Canadian Pacific under protest. They claim that the men must be bound by the finding just cs they are, but they consider that the men's refusal strengthened their posi tion, as the Canadian Pacific is not satisfied itself with the decision. t BOARD'S AWARDS Will Be Upheld by the Railway Of ficials. Montreal, Aug. 6 The officials of the Canadian Pacific Railway refuse to make any statement beyond the declaration that they would stand by the award of the Board of Arbitration and Conciliation appointed under the Lemleux law to consider the matters In dispute between the company and their mechanics. There is but slight probability of Government intervention. HUB'S NEW FURNITURE HAS ARRIVED Jeffersonians Comfortably Lo cated in Colonial Building.
