Both in Montreal and all over the line re- ports indicated that the through trains were running without iater- ruption and that the local trains were in good condition. A further sign that the company is able -to handle its business was given by the fact that suburban passenger business was resumed this afternoon. Further trains also will be put on to-day. With regard to freight traffic the con- ditions were naturally not so good, but several 'freight trains were sent out to-day and it is stated that more j will be put on to-day, while within a few days it anticipated that the freight service will be got into some- thing like normal conditions.

SUPPRESS LAWLESSNESS Montreal, July feature of the strike is based on the early out- break of lawlessness both in the United t States and Canada. The main scene of the outbreaks was at Island Pond, Vt., where such serious trouble was experienced that Governor Prou- ley and his adjutant-general went there yesterday to take control of the situation. Disturbances also have taken place at Richmond and Sher- brooke in this province, and a force of special officers left yesterday under Chief Provincial Detective Officer Caskill to take care of this. It is stated by Grand Trunk offic- j ials that" the governments on both sides of the line have early appreci- ated the gravity of the situation and are taking every possible precaution to preserve order.
