[dy telegraph.] (From our otot Correspondent.) Timaru, To-day. A private detective has been employed for some time past on the Christchurch-Timaru section of the railways, and the action of the department has erected a general feeling of uneasiness and disgust among the railway operatives. This matter has culminated in a fracas between Mr. Back, the traffic manager, and Mr. Galbraith, station master at the Washdyke, who, from information received, had been suspended on the ground of alleged irregularities in his books. Mr. Galbraith, who has been many years in the Railway employ, threatened to be the death of Mr. Back, and Mr. Back prosecuted him before the Bench today. Mr. Galbraith pleaded that he had been subjected to the surveillance of Mr. Back's detectives. The information was dismissed through an informality, but Mr. Back intimates that he will take fresh proceedings.
