When asked on what linos the con tinuation of the strike would be fought, he answered that so far as he knew on the same plan which had boon fol lowed since its inauguration. He ad mitted there was still over 1,000 knights in tho Central road's employ, but in what branches of work bo refused to say. He would give no opinion as to when, or .whether at all, those knights would be ordered out. Ho added that the JJrotherhood of Locomotive Firemen had decided to refuse to tire an engine run by a Brotherhood engineer who should allow his engine to bo attached to either passenger or freight trains bv a scab employe. 1'imili'i l v SutlKllo 1 unit onflm-nt.
