Lsst night's train went only as far as Crookatoo, and the road from Grand Koi ke west is reported tied up com pletely. The triangular nature o( the contest is exciting much boumenl among both railway officials and strikers. It is considered somewhat in tin na ture of a tight for existence on tUO jnrt of the brotherhoods: for if defeated and comp-dled to join the American Railway union, the present members of that nnion, having a large majority, would control its affairs, and engi neers, Bremen, conductors and train men or the brotherhood would have to submit to the greater voting power of tile lower paid employes. A local leader in Hie union said to day that when the first cut was mad,- last ran their organisation was too weak to fight, but now tney bate ') per cent, of the men in their memher snip, and will fight the cut. President Hill and Qeneral Manager Case were todey in coaference with the local chiefs of the Brotherhoods ol Eugineers and Firemen. Mr. Case stated that as far as (iraud Forks ev erything is running us usual, but be yond that point he was entirely with out informstiou.

Arrangements are about com pleted for the inauguration of list gle with Paeifla coast lines, which is expected to result in tbe settlement for some time to coins of the di Hereout existing. The contest will DS the more inter esting in that it will involve all the ex isting brotherhoods after the manner of n three-cornered nght, in which the older organizations wiil seek to aunilii l.ite the American It.ilway union.
