Tho second day of tho "lock out"
nmong tho laborers of this city pre
sents uo startling features. There havo
been no demonstrations of any kind
among tho men, nnd so quiet nro their
gatherings that hardly any outsiders
know whero thoy are. Tho number of
men out has been greatly exaggerated,
the number announced In Tun Ciiitic
yesterday being nearly correct. Alarge
number of workmen who wero out of
work yesterday went to work this
morning, their employers having con
ceded tlio eight hours.
Thero Is a prevailing feeling of gen
eral satisfaction over the victories
gained nnd concessions obtained so far,
and they all anticipate an early ami
satisfactory settlement of thu differ
ences existing between themselves and
tnu master mechanics.
The "locked-out" men claim thatuo
non-union men will eomo to this city to
work, as notices havo been sent over
tho couutry lequcsllup; mechanics not
lo eomo hero or intertero with tho men
hero. On the other hnnd, thu master
mechanics claim that when they need
men they can get enough men to fill

ance by the muster mechanics of the
association thcro would still bu a great

Tho situation to-day among tho briek
lay ers Is about as yesterday, over three
fourths of them being at work. The
fact that ono-fourth nro out of employ
ment is not duo to tha strike, for it Is
generally conceded that If thcro wero
plenty of brick to be had, all tho bosses
would put their men to woik ou eight
bonis. Tho btlck work must bo

Mr. A. II. Norton, tho boss brick

nnd employs a number of men, Is
working his wholo forco on tho eight

Downing, who bednngs to the Master

Thee new and younger firms aro

nent real estate dealers, who aro doln
n largo nmount of building this spring,
nnd were ossurcd by Mr. Sherman that
ho was favorablo to the eight-hour plan,

to bieak their obligations to tho union,
and go to work for them nt ton hours a

high as $1.00 n day. Of course all

Savannah, Oa May 4. Considera

night's banquet, given by tho Chatham
Artillery, by an Interruption during
the regular toasts. Captain Saunders
of tho Old Guard of New York City,
llslng, nnd proposing tho health of
.Ji'fTerson Davis, who was present.
The toast was accompanied by appro

pievnitcd. "Dlxlo" and tho "Star

band, and tho guests roso to their feet,
cheer after cheer resounding. At tho
subsidence of the npplauso Captain
Whcaton, commanding tho artillery,
ioso nud called on Mr. Davis to re
spoud. Mr. Davis roso slowly from
his chair. Deafening yells greeted
him. Volunteer soldiers waved their
hats and handkerchiefs, rattled bot
tles, knives and forks on the tnblo and
a tumult indescrlbablo ensued. When
quiet was restored Mr. Davis in u
calm and quiet manner acknowledged
tho compliment of tho gallant soldier
from thu great Cosmopolitan Stato of
New York and suld it was significant
of tho stiength nud popularity of this
great Itepubllc that men brnvu and
gallant, honoring a past, and clinging
lo Iho memories of n heroic struggle
for what they deemed a constitutional
right, should thus mlnglo In social In
tiicoursa nnd glvo free expression to
their love and tcellngs.
It wns an indisputable ovldcuco that
thcro was in this country no necessity
for u standing army, that tho strength,
of the Government lies lu Its citizen
soldiery. This magulllcnt demonstra
tion to day under tho existing Govern
ment showed that whllo tho peoplo of

memories of tho past, thoy wero faith
ful nnd loyal. This graud ovation to
him ho regarded only in tho light of a
peisonnl compllmcut nnd romembranco
of tho cause of which ho was a type.
Thoso who paid him this honor, now
that ho was powerless to reward them,
could be animated by no other tnotlvo
