Randolph became aware that a strike was In effect on the Central Vermont rail way wben tbe night express from tbe tout h. due at 1:55 a. m.. did not arrive until six hours later, or about 7 o'clock Tuesdsy morning and was tben manned by a new conductor and brakemen. Other passenger trains continued to ar rive not more than half an bour behind schedule time, and mail and express serv ice was not Interrupted. Aside from engineers and firemen, tbe old familiar train crewt are missed and in tbeir placet appear men from tba rail road 't office force and other departments, who wear no uniform except tbe regula tion caps, but seem to know bow to move trains aa well as to handle more clerical matters. One of tbe traveling pauenger agents of the road "substituted" for Con ductor Mike Powers on tbe north-bound local yesterday morning and bad aboard three carload! of men, presumably strike breakers. Not a freight train moved Monday or Tuesday, but at tbe teed and grain dealers bava a stock on band tbat will last sever al weeks, and fruit comes by express any wsy, lack of freight service will cause no local suffering to man or beast at present. Salisbury Brothers and Sargent, Uegcod & Roundy have aufflcient stock on band to run factory and foundry and have no particular shipping to do t bia week; bnt tbe E. F. Emerson company has bad to send some orders by express and bas oth ers that are wanted In a bnrry. Cream and butter are sent to Boston by express. Tbis morning one freight train bas been started out of St. Albant aoutbbound and another out of White River Junc tion going north, and tbeir progress is being watched witb interest. Tbe south bound, witb a string of 25 refrigerator cart and three coal cars, passed through tbit place just before 10 a. m. at express tpeed. A strike of tbe conductors and train men of the Grand Trunk railway began at 9:30 Monday night, because President Hayea refused to accede to the demands of tbe men tbe conductors and brakemen asking for an increase in pay amounting to approximately 40 per cent, and tbe yardmen for an Increase amounting to ap proximately 100 per cent. The president advised the men tbat tbe road was not in a position to do more then bsd been offered in a former proposition, giving tbe men an Increase of approximately 18 per cent, with tbe further promise tbat tbey should be given tbe earn standard rate of pay at the Canadian Pacific as soon as tbe Grand Trunk, through its re lation witb the Grand Trunk Pacific, is in a position to participate in tbe higher rates obtaining on tratile in tbe north west, by reasou of the completion of tbat road and tbe obtaining of through rail connections between tbe Grand Trunk and tbe Grand Trunk Pacific, which should be accomplished within two years, or not later than Jan. 1, 1B13. Tbis not being satisfactory, tbe strike was declared automatically, and trains which began tbeir runs before 9:30 p. m. Monday were taken through to division terminals and left. Tbe total mileage of tbe Grand Trunk system is 4705. The mileage of tbe Cen tral Vermont, a controlled road, is B3K. Tbe Grand Trunk chiefly is owned by English shareholders and most of tbe di rectors live in London. The company is now engaged in tbe construction of a great trans-continental railroad which is known aa tbe Grand Trunk Pacific, ex tending from Moncton, N. B., to tbe i'a citlo coast. The number of trainmen on strike on tbe New London and Northern and Cen tral Vermont branches is about 350. An otber hundred may be added on tbe main road between Portland and Montreal. Because of tbe strike, the railroad shops in St. Albans, where 350 men were em ployed, are closed, and 10,000 men are thrown out of employment, by tb.clo.ing of the shops in Montreal. John E. mont railway, and ia stationed at Mon treal in charge of the Interests of bis constituents there. A great factor to tbe dispute, which will have a wide effect, is tbe decision of the Grand Trunk company to close ail its shopa at Montreal, Toronto, London, Stratford, Port Huron, Battle Creek, Portland, Ibicago, and ill over the sys tem (ending the settlement of tbe dis pute. Tbis will mean that many thou sands of men in thesecitiee will bethron out of employment through no fault of their own, perhaps for -an indefinite pe riod. It is stated that tbis is not tbrcugb sny desire on the part of tne Grand Trunk to hurt its employes, but because if they have so tremendous an industrial dispute to light, it will take all tbe availa ble funds, and they will have io concen trate tbeir energies on this end cf tbe matter, leaving the work of tiie ebopt as a secondary consideration. ' General Pesseueer Agent, John W. Ilanlcy bas informed tbe Canadian office that all pasaengers will be handled ithout any inconvenience and that there ia no reason why tbey should be seut southward by any other route. Another o flics I would make no prediction as to bow long it would be before' the road would again be handling freight, but as confident that if it were necessary every single car ot freight delivered to the rad could be forwarded without any serious delay. The strike breaker! have encountered nothing worse than hard words and boots wfcen starting out from SI. Alcana w ith psssengcr trains and have co far found everything qoiet all along the line.

At lilaiil Pond Tuesday evening some boy svtnf. at hirers of tbe sinkers hollered snd booted sod threw rotten ee at the trains but there was no real trcutle. The train wst stalled for a while but no attempt at injury was made aud there was no riot.
