RAILWAY STRIKES IN AMERICA.
New York, August 12. The Railway strike is spreading and police are guarding the lines. The position at Syracuse, Albany and Buffalo is serious. Troops of detectives are being massed, and the Companies have refused to arbitrate. The Knights of Labor threaten to bring about a general railway strike in the United States in revenge for the dis-' missal of members. Traffic has been partially stopped. Blacklegs are now at work on the railway lines in the State of New York, and the strike is collapsing elsewhere. New York, August 12. A struggle is imminent between the Vanderbilts and Knights of Labor, who have ordered a strike on the New York Central, which will affect all freight trains in the States. The strikers number 18,000. (Received August 13, noon.) New York, August 12. The strike on the New York Central Railway is virtually ended, the men refusing to assist the Knights of Labor.
(Received August 13, 12.30 p.m.) Sydney, August 13. All hope of averting a struggle between employers and the labor bodies has evidently been abandoned, &nd both sides are actively preparing for a conflict.
