This Grows but Otherwise There Is Small Change in T. & G. TONOPAH, April 6.—There have been few changes in the local strike situation during the past 24 hours. The strikers and their sympathisers gather at all trains but. no violence has been offered. A number of arrests have been made of men brought in by the rail road company, claiming to be offi cers but without proper credentials to bear out their claims. They are being tried this afternoon on charges of carrying concealed weapons. Corrigan and Phillips, represent ing the railway brotherhoods, are this afternoon explaining to the press the position of the railroad men and the alleged refusal of the company to accept the arbitration offered them Sunday. There is some talk of local business men routing all their shipments over the Tonopah and Tidewater railroad and cutting out the Tonopah and Goldfield railroad. Citizens generally favor the strik ers in this controversy. It Is pos sible that this sympathy will take a practical form. One strikp breaker was rotten-egged as he was coming out of a local barber shop this after noon and only protection of the chief of police saved the barber shop from being wrecked. DAMAGE OX CUT-OFF. How the Wind and Wat«‘r Have Got ten in Their Work. The Ogden Examiner tells of the storm damage suffered by the S. P. on the Lucin cut-off as follows: The two storms within the past eight days have been very similar in character and in the amount of dom age done in that practically the same districts have been ofTected each time. In the last storm the damage be tween Little Mountain and Bagley, a distance of five miles, is more exten sive than the former one. It is the first time in the history of the cut-ofT that the east side of the cut-off has been damaged by the lake storms. From the east end of the trestle to Salina and from Rambo to the west end of the trestle the fills were again undermined and weakened. The wind reached a velocity of 7 2 miles an hour and sent great waves against the railroad embankments. The total distance damaged in the recent storm is placed at ten miles. To repair the damage, the company has eight work trains hauling bal last and rock from the Lakeside quarries, the longest haul of the work trains being about thirty miles. All the available work trains from various points upon the division have been pressed into service for the re pairing of the damage. Two shifts of men are working night and day. The gravel pit at Lakeside is lighted by electricity. Two steam shovels of the most modern type are gradually eating into the sides of small moun tains of rock to get material to empty into the lake. The announcement was made at the local offices of the Southern Pa cific company yesterday that the line will be opened this afternoon. Dur ing the temporary suspension of traffic across the lake, the old Cen tral Pacific line around the head of the lake is again in use. Beginning Sunday afternoon, passenger trains were sent over the old line. The fact that the rails are lighter and the roadbed Is not in the best of shape between Kelton and Umbria Junction, a schedule of not exceeding twenty miles per hour Is maintained. The trains are hauled by the light englneB of the old class between Ogden and Montello. At the latter point tbe trains are given the heavier or Pa cific type engine. The running time of trains be tween Ogden and Montello by the way of the o’d line, 164 miles, is eight hours, while the distance by the cut-off is 120 miles and the time Is three hours and twenty-one min utes of the fast mall to four hours and forty minutes for the local train. The line across the lake does not have a one per cent grade while that on the old line reaches about three per cent on Promontory hill. Following the storm of last Mon day, General Manager Bancroft is sued orders for the improving and building up of the old line around the head of the lake, to be ready for use in cases of emergency. The an nouncement Is made that a coal shute and water tank will be placed at Kelton, water tanks and telegraph offices will be placed at other points, new Bidetracks will be put in and the old line practically rebuilt. In order to rush the work upon the old line, a work train will leave Og den this evening with carpenters and “HOLEPROOF HOSIERY" KNOX HATS HAN AN and WALKOVER SHOES—Sole Agency Graham’s Quality Shop track men, to be joined by another I work train and men from the west end of the division.
