Announced 01 February 1898
Mr H V Powell, chief elected officer of the Order of Railway Telegraphers, has announced that the dispute with regards to the salaries of the men who operate the telegraph circuits for the Canadian Pacific Railway and Telegraph Company [sic] has been satisfactorily arranged. Also in attendance at the conference held 12 Janaury in Montreal were Messrs. T G Shaughnessy, Vice-President of the Canadian Pacific Railway, and Thos, Tait, and Managers of the circuits in the Maritimes. The points in dispute were carried from the Superintendent up to the highest authority and now that the matter has been resolved satisfactorily, the telegraphers and operating agents will resume their negotiations with the Superintendents with regard to the other points remaining until the more vital question of the minimum wage can be settled.
