MlNXEAPOLlS, July 3. - lrains are still running in the Twin Cities although there are sonie bad delays on the Chicago Great Western and Northern Pacific. No road. however. is corn pletely tied up. The strikers spent the day in fortifying their position andsucceeded in getting the firemen on the Milwaukee to go out. The flourmill eituation was still further complicated by calling out the ruen on the Minneapolis and Eastern railway transfer, a road on which inany of the milis are dependent. Few of the milis are now ruiming. The freight tieup is mueh lighter than the passenger, but some of the roads have their arrangements so far perfected that they espect to start their train8 in a day or two. United States cleputy marshals have not been called to any extent nor are the roads ruaking an effort to hire any new men. indicating their belief that the employés will not stand by the American Railway union, or that the boycott will be of short duration.
