Five Hundred Men Were in Line
Of Parade, and Never Was
the Day More General
Labor Day was a gala one in Havre
when an army of five hundred work
ing men formed, into line at Chest
nut's corner with gaily bedecked
floats, representative of the
different unions and the business
places of Havre. The day will be
pleasantly remembered on account of
the splendid parade of the forces and
the ideal sunshiny weather.
Headed by the Citizen's Band of
Havre, the procession marched to
Preston's Grove where Major Martin
Maginnis of, Helena, State Superin
tendent W. W. Welch of Helena, W.
G. Conrad of Great Falls, Rev. W. B.
Young and Rev. Francis W. Pool
were introduced and welcomed by
Mayor Newman and, Pres. John Pur
cell of the Trades and Labor Assem
bly, as speakers for the occasion.
After invocation by Rev. Francis
W. Pool, Maj. Maginnis started the
ball rolling and held the closest atten
of the large assemblage in an address
replete with logic and from the stand
point of one who takes an optimistic
view of existing conditions. He de
fined the laboring man as one who by
the exertion of mind or body produc
es wealth or adds to the sum of hu
man knowledge, or who satisfies hu- t
man desires. That the day will come
when all men will come into
possession of their birthright, 'the
right and opportunity for a larger
life and truer liberty, and all will
join, not the-pursuit of selfish pleas
ure, but of true happiness.
Rev. W. B. Young made a masterly
talk that more than met the expecta
tions of his friends. l He told how the
status of labor is rising before us like
the sun in thegeast. We see the com
ing of a new day in which every breath
of Joy, in which no woman shall wear
gorgeous raiment woven from the rags
and with the tears of her sister's toil;
no man shall be surfeited in wealth
by the coinage of the crystalized
sweat of his brother. All men and
all women of all lands shall be free
men and free women. Then shall we
be brothers indeed; then shall the
golden rule be the rule of all human
State Supt. W. W. Welch, the old
time favorite among Havre unionists,
did not dissappoint the boys and
made everybody glad with an offhand
address that held his hearers in rapt
attention. His talk on Colorado's la
bor history during the past few
months was particularly appreciated.
In part he said, "Capital has always
claimed and still claims the right to
combine. Manufacturers meet and
determine on prices, even in spite of
the great law of supply and demand.
Have the laborers the same right to
consult and combine? Manufactur
ers meet and determine on prices, ev
en in spite of the great law of supply
and demand. Have the laborers the
same right to consult and combine?
The rich meet in the bank, the club
house and the parlor. Workingmen,
when they combine, gather in the
street. All the organized forces of so
ciety are against them. Capital has
the army and navy. In Colorado
mine owners have the legislature, the
judiciary and executive departments.
When the rich combine it is for the
purpose of "exchanging ideas." When
the poor combine it is "conspiracy."
If they act in concert, if they really
do something, it is the "mob." If
they defend themselves it is "trea
son." How is it the rich control the
departments of government in Colo
rado. In this country the political
power is equally divided among men.
There are certainly more poor than
are rich. Why should the rich con
trol? Why should not the laborers
combine for the purpose of electing
the executive, the legislative and ju
dicial departments? When will they
find how powerful we are?""
W. G. Conrad delivered a brief ad
dress that made a decided hit with
his listeners, especially the men who
are joining hands all over the country
in the fight against Orient labor. He
stated that while the Chinese ques
tion was comparatively settled, there
is still a greater danger menacing the
country by the increase of Japanese
labor in the United States; that un
less their emigration was restricted
the competition would not be confin
ed to laundry help and dishwashers,
but with our clerks and more skilled
labor, and should their combat with
Russia be successful, the Japs might
endeavor to depose the generals of
the United States army.
The field sports were called on di
rectly after the speaking, resulting as
