They made .speeehes all along the route.
When the party reached Pass-aic it met
with violent opposition. An enormous crowd
of mill workers listened for awr.ile and
then became angry. It is of no use to tell
a Passaic mill hand that his dinner-pail Is
full, bee':iue he looks Into it every elav.
The rough and ready workmen bought
eggs and surrounded th-- car. A very rips
