SWITCHMEN STKIKE. The Burlington Railroad Again Tied Up by a Strike of the Switchmen. 'The Men Claim That Their Lives Are in Jeopardy Owing: to Incompe- tent Engineers. A Non-Brotherhood Man Assaulted Strikers Strika of Switchmen oa the Erie Boad. 7 Chicago, March 24. At exactly twelve o'clock last night a stride was inaugurated among the switchmen employed by the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy railway. Whispers of such a move had been heard ever since the beginning of the strike of the Burlington engineers and firemen, but not until the past few days did the rumors assume tangible shape. Verification of the reports was lacking and yesterday the im portance at first attached to the matter had dwindled almost to nothing. The inactiv ity at the headquarters of the cngiueers and firemen all day and evening was so no ticeable as to cause the remark that it was studied, but no outsider, it is safe to say, suspected the surprise that was in store. Owing to the unexpectedness of the even...
