BIG STRIKE BEGINS
Canadian Pactfic Railroad and
Machinists in Struggle.
.TWELVE THOUSAND HEN QUIT
Every Union Mechanic on Road from
Ocean to Ocean Slops Work
Winnipeg, Man., Aug. 6. Trades
unionism in Canada has given its defy
to the Canadian Pacific railway. With
out any untoward incident or ostenta
tious show, the mechanics and kindred
workmen yesterday quit work nnd nil
shops, big and little, on this great sys
tem arc idle.
It Is estimated that 12,000 men went
out, tho largest number being 2,200
in Montreal and 1,500 here. Two
thousand men left work between Fort
William nnd Vancouver, all nt the dic
tates of the executive board. Even
old workmen in line 'for pensions went
home, and it seems to be the most
complete tie-up in the history of rail
way shops in Canada. All the work
men employed around the trainsheds at
tho depots went out and conductors
and engineers caused somo delay In
the service, by insisting on trains be
ing properly made up before they
would take trains out. Every wheel
in the shops stopped and every fire
died out when the whistle blew several
short blasts, caretakers and shop fore
men alonei being left to put the places
in shape for the period of idleness
bound to follow.
The Canadian Pacific railway's view
is that tho Anding of the board ap
pointed at the request oi the men
should, in the company's opinion, bo
binding on the men. Tho Canadian
Pacific railway not only did not seek
arbitration, but, believing tho board
to bo hostile to its interests, withdrew
its representatives and the government
appointed another arbitrator to repre
sent tho company, who therefor was
not accepted by the company. Despite
these facts the board so constituted
gave a finding which was accepted by
the Canadian Pacific under protest.

Interstate Commerce Commission to
Meet In San Francisco.
San Francisco, Aug. 7.- It was an
nounced hero today that tho Interstate
Commerce commission will meet in San
Francisco August IS, to tako up mat
ters relating to tho freight rate contro
versy between the commission nnd tho
railroads that havu grown out of tho
new freight tnrilT order by tho com
mission on shipments of lumber from
points In tho Willamette valley to Snn
Francisco nnd Bay point.
It is likely that the commission will
also hear complaint from tho trans
continental railroads regarding the
new ruling on Oriental tnritTs, nt its
Snn Francisco meeting, which will be
one of tho most Important sessions of
The government officials here pro
fess to bo ignorant of the commis
sion's program, but admit thnt the
lumber rate controversy is to bo con
sidered. The commission has been subpoena
ed to answer In Federal Judge Mor
row's court to show why nn injunction
should not bo issued restraining the
enforcement of the new lumber rates.
The officials of tho Pacific Mail com
pany nro preparing to submit their ob
jections to tho lato ruling of tho com
mission regarding tho publication of
overland tariffs on Oriental shipments.
The new rule requires the publication
of overland taritTs nnd tho steamship
people say they would be forced to go
out of business because competition on
tho Pacific ocean forces them to give
tho Oriental shipper n lower rate than
they give the American shipper. A
strong protest is to bo made.
