Aliens on the Canada Atlantic.
An Ottawa dispatch says:The locomotive engineers of the Canada Atlantic & Ottawa, Arnprior &; Parry Sound railways are waging a war against aliens. Some time ago these companies leased a number of locomotives from the Central Vermont Ry. for aiding in the hauling of the extensive lake grain trade from Parry Sound. At the same time a number of men were imported to run the locomotives, thus giving to aliens the work which should have belonged to Canadians. At present the engineers are provided with pilots, but these will shortly be removed, & with their removal the old employes of the lines state they will insist on the new men being sent back. It is stated the C.V.Ry. refused to lease the engines to the C.A. unless C.V. men were employed.
Railways: C.A.Ry., C.V.Ry., O.A. & P.S.Ry.
