Carmen laid off
A reduction in the staff of carmen at Allandale on the C.N.R. was made on Wednesday, March 16th, when Chas. McFarland and W. Cullen were laid off. The case of Mr. Cullen is indeed unfortunate. After twenty-two-years of faithful service to his employers, he was forced to leave the railroad with just one more year to put in to become eligible for a pension. No doubt this is a great disappointment to Mr. Cullen, who has probably had vision of a comfortable income to live upon after retirement only to be deprived of it at the last moment.
