PECULIAR STATE OF AFFAIRS.

Sr. Paul, Minn., April 10.—The
strike on the (ireat Northern railway-
is gradually working East, having
taken in (iranil Forks, N. 1)..
last midnight, and if not
settled will probably reach this
end of the line in about
two or three days. It is developing a
peculiar state of affairs. The strike
was ordered by the American railway
union, and is being more actively an-
tagonized by the railroad employes
and brotherhoods than by the rail-
road company itself. There can be
no doubt thut the individuals of the
various brotherhoods are privately
>oinewhat dissatisfied, but they re*

and are standing by their agreement
with the company.
