"Canadian Pacific Railway Train Dispatchers' Join Telegraphers' In Strike"
Announced 07 October 1896

	The strike by Canadian Pacific Railway telegraphers now includes the
	Train Dispatchers for the national railway.  The train dispatchers have
	now added their own grievances to the list generated by the telegraphers,
	station agents and operators.

	The report that the strike had interrupted train and commercial traffic
	across the country is untrue.  Mr EV Skinner, General Eastern Agent of
	the Canadian Pacific Company stated that passenger and freight trains
	were running regularly and keeping to schedule.  Areas where there were
	no railway operators or dispatchers were being filled without incident.
