Railroad Shops Close
^Winnipeg, Man., Aug. 6.—Tonight
all the Canadian Pacific railway
shops are in darkness owing to the
lelectricdans, operating the light
plant, declining to work with non
union labor. Today three coaches
loaded with strike-breakers reached
here from St. Paul and Chicago.
These, added to the Japanese used
in the round houses, and the Ital
ians and Galicians at work in other
parts of the yards, add somewhat to
the usual activity around the build
ings.
The porters on cars are now com
pelled to clean out their own cars
and every extra laborer that can be
utilized by the company is being
pressed into service. Several hun
dred mechanics are expected from
the Pacific Coast states, while the
eastern shops will draw their sup
ply from the New England states.
Sixty union pickets have been
placed on duty at the local shops. At
some shops in the far western, cit
ies, armed police are on gaurd but
this is not considered necessary here.
All day at the shops everything -yras
quiet. 'gi
The most striking feature of the
situation was the placing of be
tween fifty and sixty pickets at vari
ous railroad terminals and in the
vicinity of the shops to meet all me
chanics coming into the: city and dis
suade them from going to work for
the company, if they have any such
intention. J. H. McVery, local chair
