banners by the score and United
Sta'es Ugs. Tbe organizations began
gathering on Randolph ttreet in the
old baymarket belore 10 o'clock a.m.,
and the marching scoo bugan. Tbe
line of march was apparently chosen
to cross and recross as many strefct-car
linns as possible. At many places cars
aU od in lines over half a mile in
length. The objective point was the
Luke Front, where a mtss-mccMng of

however, cheered and shouted for
'fight honrs" and ''Down with the
capitalists.' There were hardly
dozen banners in Knglishin the entire
length of the procsjion, and two or
three contained instructions to boycott
certain individuals or their manufac
ture. One was as follows: "J'rivate
capital represents stolon labor." An
other had the words: "Kight hours a
day." Uae banner bore in Uermaa
tho words: "Drink water like cattle,
so says Master Workman l'owderly.''
On the way down Madison street the
driver of a wagon attempted to drive
through the procession. ' His wagon
was quickly overturned and left op
side down in the gutter. When the
procession reached the Like Front the
various organizations, augmented by
throngs of curious people, in all per
haps 10,000, gathered around two
stands and listened to speeches by A.
R. Parsons, Michael Schwab and a Mr.
Uarasach from one stand. Parsons
spoke in English, Schwab in German,
and Harasauh in Bohemian. On tbe
other platform 8am Fielding, August

in Knglish. The speeches were all of
the ' blood and thunder" ordor, and
declared in favor of tbe abolition of
private capital and tbe unification of
all wealth. Parsons declared if star
vation was forced npon the masses
they would raiee the banner of lihurty
and equality and sweep away all their
oppressors. Henry said that hereto
fore all strikes bad been wrong. Tbe
men had struck to walk ont. They
must change front and i strike to
walk in and throw the owners and
managers out. It was better ti throw
out tbe owner of a factory than to
throw ont 200 or 300 workmen. While.
the speaking was in progress all tbe

which Tareona stood were furled and
tucked out of sight, while the red fldg

WHAT LSAD1NCI CAPITALISTS THINK OV
tbb aiuiiT-nocB movkmbnt.
Tbe Tmn published tbe following
yesterday: As time approaches for the
test of the eight-hour labor system in
terest deepons in the movement, and
capital represented in vait and varied
enterprises is taking a more serious
view of the iuture. Heedful of the
strength ol labor unions and alarmed
at the prospects iu itore if the move
ment be confined alone to Chicago
and its immediate vicinity, if the army
o! workingmen in Chicago demand
that eight hours eonatituta a day's
work, and that ten hours' pay be given
for that eervice, it can carry its point,
and perhaps close up the nunimc:o
ries. A reporter of the Tone inter'
vitwed leading capitalists and Imei
noes men on this question.
In an interview with J. Y. Farwell.
oi J. V. Farwell & Co., regarding the
effect of the elc't-hour law on the
production and distribution ot goods
and its Droenective result! on tiade in
general, Mr. Farwell stated that his
house was praotiraily aa eight-hour
houoo at the present time. In the
busy time wholesale houses were
obliged to open early f.ir the accoa
nidation ol country trailers who, bo
ins used to early rising at home, ex
rt'oto 1 to tlnd wholesale houses open
ear lv aio. i o close eany in me Dusy

oy eeh employer, aud unlet all the
b oner a lu the city were to adopt the
eight-hour svetem the tradu of those
who did 60 would eutl'er. Their trade
would go elsewhere. Mr. Farwell
thought the eight h or system wonld
not affect the production of io ids, but
mouI.1 hinder tboir distribution in
, busy eeascni.
Mr. Lvman 3. Gage, vict-pr?ident
ol the F rU National Bask, was asked
for an expywion of opinion on the
subject. ' do not think I am in a
cinnition Ao eav what effect may be
produced' aid he. "It is in advance
of the njvement and to) early to form
a clearopinion upoa it, I will eay
thie.owever, that if the change from
ten r eight hours labor shall become
i-eoeal, and not local, there wonld
oihably be little cMiee Inrdis' urhanre.
the proposition for eight hours work
hould result in an increased cost cl
production in Cbicas?, anil the hours
of labor ebou'd not be geneinl over
tbe country, the manufacturers and
prrvinrers of Chicsco would be placed
at i;a.1vui-' in rnmpnrison with
t h'.r.citieB, If the propo jition should
oecinie general m lue United States
aud not in othtr countries, the people
ot this country would ba at a d:ead
vantae with manufacturers or pro
ducers f f o her countries in which
the eigh'.-hour rule xre not ia force.
The proposition fir eight honrs for a
.lay' work means practically an in
crease in the cost of production. It
A
means 20 per cent les time, tad con
ewqnently 10 per cent, incrtaa in the
cott of production, as far aa labor is
concerned. If e'cUt hours means the
employment of idle laborers ot the
cout try, which I very! much diuM,
and an increase in the induitr3 c
the conntry, it will not ilitturb th
the finances of the country. If eight
hours for a dsv's work means a de
crease cf tho indutiries of the coun- i
try it necessarily means aa injury ti
evrry body, not excepting the laborer
hlaistlf. who would feel it as much as
any one in proportion? "
Air. Jrrar. er, ot the urm oi u. a
Fiak. wholesale millinery, said he
thought it would iacrease the price of
goods and decrease the price ot lanor.
It was a qnestion g vtr aed entirel v by
the laws of supply and demand. Lees
work prodaced less goods and a
scarcity of go -wis increased their
value, and as tbe worxmen wouia
work a less number of bouts as a
natural consequence their services
would be worth If si.
Mr. Warner of Hprague. Warner &
Co. aaid if tbe eight-hoar rule became
general, he would be obliged todouble
Lis force to accomplish the same
amount of work as at pr sent. Should
railway corporations adopt tbe system
wholesalers would be obliged to con
firm to it. Tbe eight-hour question,
be thought, would have to be sottled
by wbo'.esalors.
Mr. George Hturgis, president of tbe
Northwestern National Bank, was
asked wba, if any, would be the effect
of the proposition for eight hours'
work upon nr.acces. "I do not be
lieve it will have much effact npon
capital," aaid h'. "My belief is that
the money problem iB t o well etttled
just now to be unsettled Dy this move'
ment."
'I have no objection to the eleht
hour system," said M. 1). Wells, "if it
is to be universal, but if it is a Chicago
movement only, aud all acting only
Chicago laborers, the community munt
suffer. Capitalize, manufacturers aad
employers cannot ompete with other
cities nnd-r such a system. Let me
illustrate bv referring to my own busi
nss. The boat and shoe trade in the
West ia more subject to competitive
influences than a ay other buslneea, for
tbe reason that the Eastern manufact
urers make the market. Quite r ;centl jr
the manufacture ol Massachusetts,
the controlling influence In our bust
ness,agreed that fifty-nine honrs should
constitute a week's work. Now, bow
can we, supplied mainly by Eastern
tanners with our leather, with active
competition in adjacent cities, hips to
continne business and pay the same
wages for foity-elght hours work that
others pay for fifty-nine? We cannot
do it. Representatives of E intern
houses are in tbe field anxious to take
our tiade. Local manufacturer are
not bnying leather, at least such are
our advices. It the eigut-nnnr law
movement becomes universal, well
and good; otherwise, wo might as
well go out of buaineis if it is to be
fonfinej to Uliicao inanuiactones.
BIB. W. Dodion. of Kathbone, bard A
Co., said: "On account of this advance
in wages ana increased cost oi manu
facture, an advance in prices would
probably result, but should ten hours
pay be demanded lor eight hours
work the advance in prices that would
necorsiriiy have to follow would be
out of proportion to the needs of the
country and would greatly retard
r it her than stimulate trade. The ef
fect misht be dirastrous " ,
Mr. 8. D. Kimbark said if tbe
adoption was uniform no harmful re
suits to trade would follow, but if
Chicago should reduce the laboring
hours of its employes to eight, while
Cleveland and other manufacturing'
center still hold to ten, why Uliicago
manufacturers would ba to shut'

Nxw Yoaa, Ajmi n a special io
the Sun from Boston says: a strug
gle ot the moat serionspoitent is about
totejjin in this vicinity overtbeeight
hor movement. The hope of the
Centi si Trades and Labor Unions of tie
speedy acquiescence by a large pro
portion oi employers in iuo r
ment noves firjundless. In accord'
m with tdnua made a voir ago, tbe
demand for eight hours was to be en
lnrea on Mav 1st. In view of the
nonunion of labor through
out the country, it wa recently deter
mined to limit the demand to tho
hulldinir ttales. Including carpenters,
masons, naintera. decorators, etc. The
Ont.ral Trod, a and Libor Unions re
cently made public many favorable
renliea which were received from em
ployer in answer to questions sent
out. This has reeulted in an address,
published to-day, signed by m em
plovers in building trades. The ad
dress states : ' Kmployers of labor, bay
ing read in the public press that the
sentiment of the builders favored the
"'slit-hour movemtnt, and mindful
ot u.. interests of the public as
well aa int. needs and well
being of their employee, desire
to aav that they are not rmnirod to
indorse the queation cf eight Lows as
tbe measure ol a day a wort, its re
sults are too fir-ietching to permits
hasty judgment, and the advance of 25
per cent, in cost of labor in the several
occupations represented by us is too
sweeping in its consequences tJ be
adopted by any community without
greit deliberation, both on the part of
the employed as we 1 ai the employ
ers. On to e question of a reduction of
the number ot hours which constitute
a day, from t!ie prenent standard ot
ten boors to s standard of either nine
or eight hours, we would express the
following opinion: The principal ar
gument in favor of such a change, as
far as we can learn, appears to be
based upon the Rent ral ground of over
production. This argument, in our
mind, has no application to our
branches of labor and cannot fairly be
distorted to meet them. There is no
overstock and can be no overstock of
tho gods wo produce. We simply
work up to the demand and never be
yond it. The supply is not and can
not be beyond the demand as far as we
are conierned. The argument that
tbera is an oversupply of men d us
not obtain, and has in our mind no
weight, for the reason that a reduction
in the honrs cf labor would in no
way put into employment a larger
number ol men; it would Bimply keep
the same number of men that it is now
possible to employ at work a greater
number of days, and 83 that argument

falls tt the ground. The great and
supreme objej lin to the leJaction ol
tbe boura of labor aa far as it shall
affect the well-being and good of ail
workmen in onr lines ol employment
is, in oar opinion, that tbe prosperity
of tbe country is not great enough at
this time ta graat such a change. For
quite a Dumber of years the margin of
Vrtfits in the general business of the
aiUDtry tiaa been small, and npon
tlese profits we, as builders, depend
f i the oppai tunity to use our skill and
la'j.T, I . bv takinar c ft' one or two

own interests as laborers, for we drive
out wk that would be done
but for tlis Increased C03t In this
year, in out own city already under
the agitation of the one tion, enter
prises which would involve expendi
tures of hundreds of thoutands
of dollars, .amployirg tbe very
ltbor we have to offer, bave been
abandoned becaise the increased coat
of building under tbe conditions re
ferred to would mike returns unprofit
able. The interests of the class we
mutually represent bave then been
injured beyond computation. Capital
naa oeen withdrawn trom the under
takings and that mean a lo for the
laborer every time. It ii painfully
evident that we will be short of work
before tbe year ia two-thirds over, and
no one is to blame for thiscondiiion
bat those who are to suffer iost and
yet. have been the very ones v urge
on this crisis. We believe that in all
tbe pnshing wherever it has taken
place for a reduction of hours of laoor
and increase of wages boyend the level
ot i rjtpenty, tbe hut has boea lost 1
sight of that the increased coat ol
every purchasable item will pull from
the pockets of all grades of workmen a
proportionally larger amount, which
will affect the increase of nay reut ived,
while tho depression of businem will
create great want and distress among
the very classes who hope to be beae
fitted."
The first formal demand was mad
by the Bricklayers' Assembly, Kuightb
of Labor, to the master masons, ihi
Master Builders' Arsociation sent a
ong reply yettsrday, of which the
following la the aubstancs :
"We believe that tbe attempt to set
a limit to the minimum hours wou'd
be as abortive as to set a limit to tbe
maximum wage, particularly in our
calling, where so mnch depends upon
skill and ability. Yet if sne limit is
fixed the other sheuld be fixed also.
Labor is tbe most important item in
o.tirra'.ing tbe cost of building. Tbe
stock is comparatively easy to figure,
but in the estimate for labor the judg
ment which has been gained by expe
rience Is the only guide. In what po
sition, then, is the contractor placed
when be ia told to throw aside bis ex
perience and judgment an figure his
labor on a basis of a leve' price right
through for every man employed, be
he good, bad or indiderent? Tbe at
tempt to set a fixed price in advance
for en article the ralue of which can
only be known by testing it, puts at
defiance the tt lew which governs
the estimatio' of work, as well as the
first law of excellence in workman
ship, and ould at one blow disinte
grate tlx whole structure of compara
tive wC'n among workmen, diecour
Agiuirftny attempt to excel. We be
lief, f'en, that the attempt to shorten
the hours of labor in our line of busi
jio3a 'U entirely uncalled for and
unwarranted at the present time;
that . the prosperity of tbe country
is Aoi great enough to permit it; that
tJi agitation of the question has al
badv shown its baleful effect in the
Withdrawal of au immense amount of
work from the market, transforming
what was a year of great promise to
the building trades into a time of de
pression, great scarcity of work. and.
iyre fear, a period of much distress for
the very ci asses who bave been moet
active in tbe agitation. We therefore
augtest that the whole question of the
Oiuri ol labor be abandoned until a
nitre propitioua time for the good of
all concerned, and more especially for
the good of the laboring class, of which
we claim to be a part. Our conclu
sloner,tUen, are summed up in the fol
lowing recommendations: xne nours
of labor; the rate of wages and the
time ot weekly payment to remain aa
at present, bet that on Saturday eight
nours snau be accepted as a day a
labor." -,1
There is. good tea ion for believing
that the atbur building trades will
take eimilar action. It is equally
probable that the euiDloves will de
cline to yield any point in their de
mands, and that they will retort to a
strike. Tbe'lmit'ers and decorators
so voted yesterday.

The
Fireman and Brukeman Killed
Outright-No Clew to the
Perpetrators.
Kansas City, Mo., April 21. An
incoming freight train on the Missouri
Pacific rai road was wrecked at 4
o'clock this morning, between Wyan
dotte and this city, near Kaw river
bridge. Spikes had been removed
from the rai a on a curve, and when
the train approached the engine and
four freight cars went off the
track down a Ion embankment. The
engine rolled ovtr and stopped, bot
tom side up, at tie water's edge. Ben
Hort jn, fireman, and Geo. Carlysle,
brakeman. were killed outright. En
gineer J. II. Fowbr was thrown into
the river and seriously injured. No
clew as to the id -ntity of the perpe
trators cf the outrage Las as yet been
obtained.
Later. The scene of the wreck is
alnjut two miles f'om this city. The
Missouri Pacific track there skirts the
hi nils, which line is" on the west bank
of Kansas river, and passes under tbe
street bridge wh ch connects Wyan
dotte and Kaneis City. Engineer
Fowler says that he slackened the
speed on approaching the bend of the
river, keeping a sbarp lookout. As
the train passed under the bridge it
was going about mix miles per hour.
He saw several men in a group appa
rently w tching for something to hap
pen. Tho engineer reached for a
rillu that he carried, and just then the
train struck the looHcned rails. Ho
reversed his engine and jumped off,
landing at the water's edge. The fire
m n was caught under the engine sni
was killed, ins body being recovered
at 9 o'clock. The brakemaa who was
on the forward car was carried down
and was also crti-lied to death. The
wrecking train is busv clearing the
track. It is reported that a man
aauied Converse, who was among the
croud of spectators on the blufls
above the track, fell over the b!ufl to
uay Mid was fatally injured. It is
also srjcl that three men were seen
going rayidly up the track after the
accident, and refusing to halt were
fired upon by tho watchmen and
