Considerable Excitement in Altany
The Knights Holding
ALnANY, N. Y., August 18.-The switch
men and laborers employed in the upper
Delaware and Hudson freight yards near
Lumber street, quit work this afternoon.
Railroad men say they do not know the
cause. A report that the brakemen had
also gone out is pronounced untrue. One
of the company's officers says the number
of strikers will not exceed 280. The men
say they have detected Delaware and
Hudson officials endeavoring to move
Central freight in violation of a promise.
They said they did not strike without
due awarning, and that the strike will ex
tend til whole length of the road before
night. Passenger trains are all running
and the strikers say they will not disturb
them. There is a large amount of per
ishible freight here consigned to Sara
toga hotels, which was all ready to go up
this afternoon.
The Knights assert that the action of
the CentraLpeople in bringing in a large
number of switchmen from the Michigan
Central yards in Chicago will at once ex
tend the strike to the western lines of the
Vanderbilt system, as a result. At noon
the Delaware & Hudson Canal company
freight and yardmen, except engineers
and firemen, quit work as though a sig
nal had been given on that road. It is
sasti that the Boston & Albany and Fitch
burg freight departments will strike be
fore night. Trouble is feared here now.
