Some time after tbe t?rminti"u of the great tie-up of all tbo w mk and llrook lvn horse rar line?, the eniploven of th Hrooklvn city company noticed that eradu- ail v their hours of latwr were Iteing length ened. They wore comprilefl to work more than twelve hours as had been agreed npon and tad never received any extra pay for for the extra work. The number of "swing1 trips was soon increased to more than one fourth of the total numlw of the car run. The men expressed much dissatisfaction at this deviation 1 from the agreement The new president of the comiwiny, David F. Iewis, told his men three days apo tbat a new time table 1 would be made and pasted on tbe first week 1 oi January. At the samo time be refused to confer with the members of the executive committee or the Knipire Protective associa tion. Wednesday the committee called on Presi dent Lewis and made a final demand upon him to consider the grievances of his em ployea. Mr. Lewis again refused to recog nize the committee, declaring that he would deal with his own men only. Tho commit tee thereupon withdrew and hastily sum moned a conference of representatives from the different lines controlled by the company to consider what acti on should be taken in the matter. Tbe delegates promptly responded to the call and remained in executive session until 3:00 Thursday morning when an order was issued to all the employes of the city railroad company to re frain from assisting in the taking out of cars Thursday morning. The order was obeyed though somewhat reluctantly by a number of the men. It L believed that the strike is more a demand for recognition than for anything elsft. Trouble is feared as both sides are deter mined and will not yield a single point Tbe strike has raused a serious injury to business in Brooklyn, not to speak of the inconven ience to travelers. At the various stables the greatest confusion ensued as soon as tbe news of the tie-up liecauie known. President Lewis was quickly informed of the trouble and was at bis office bright and early pre pared for business. Hethtm sent out tbe fol lowing instructions to bavs potod in every depot: "Notice is hereby given to the employes of the Brooklyn City Kail road company that their services are required and to report for work at once at tboir respective depots. Any failure to so report the company will take immediate steps to find substitutes for their places. J be city nutdonties nave been noti fied to protect men wbo remain and engage in the company's service. Men engaged to till vacancies will not be discharged tu make places for old employes w ho leave the service in the present tie-tip." 'D. F. Lewis, president." He then wrote a letter to tbe railroad com missioners of the state of New York notify ing them of tbe trouble and also letters to Mayor Whitney, Sheriff Farley, and Com missioner of Police Carroll, auk ing for pro tection in the emergency.
