ntOncc 10 Sco ?lto Secretary ol llto
About 400'workingmen or this city met
last night at City Hall ?or the purpose
of iaklng some action in regard to the
reduction ?'t wages. Mr. John A. Mc?
Donald called the meeting to order and
read the call, which was published in
The Virginian of yesterday, which
elated the object for which the meeting
would bo held. At the conclusion of
the reading Mr. McDonald was made
permanent chairman. The press was
requested to act; as secretaries. Mr.
Wilson iButt was nominated for pri?
vate secretary. Air. Carhart was also
nominated. A vote being taken resum?
ed In the election of Mr. Butt, and he
was declared the nominee.
iMr. McDonald then- made a short
talk. He said that he came to the
meeting to do what was right and
?honorable, and he felt satisfied that lie
voiced the sentiment of nil present,
when he said ho only had the interest
of the workingmen at heart, and 'he
thought that'the meeting was with hint,
and that the workingmen should re?
ceive fair pay fur a week's work. He
said he was not present to criticise
those who had fixed the wages, but it
was a prerogative that the workingmen
?had, to express themaelves, and lie
should do so. He said that the work?
ingmen no longer lived In the dark
uses, but 'that they had a right to
speak ob.out what affcried theim Ha |
then cited the custom of fixing wages. |
He spoke of the manner in which the |
reduction had -?-'en made. He said
thai such things should not exist be?
cause better wages were 'being paid
outside than In the yard, lie said the
reduction atToctcd every one. He spoke
of what could be done with proper ef?
He believed in ocoinmy. but It should
be in its proper place, and when it en?
croached upon the poor man that it
should he frowned down. Ho spoke of
?the commandant of the yard and paid
him quite a compliment, and said he
did not believe that his sympathies
were with 'the cut. Ho said that in Now
York first class men received J3.52 a
day. Then why should not men whoso
?skill Is kjiown the World over and
who cannot bo excelled receive less?
Ho cited nn .illustration of how this I
yard had outstripped all other yards.
Then why should not our mechanics I
he paid the same a:; those elsewhere?
He nsked that the meeting take stich
action.as would request the Socrotnry
of the Navy to rate all yards alike,
and the -men would be satisfied. Ho
then said that the meeting was now
ready for business:
'Mr. YV. H. Fair lest was called on
and made fa, talk. Ho said that ho did
not cmie to make a speech, but to be
in sympathy with the meeting.
Ho then cited a similar meeting that
(ha had attended to keep wages from
?being cut two years ago, and how they
succeeded. Ho said that it was much
harder to get a thing altered after it
?had been done than It was to Intercept
it in the beginning. He thought tins
proper thing to do was to got down to
business, lie said that ho thought that
most of the members of 'the Labor
Hoard are young men, and that a num?
ber of them were living In the yard,
contrary -to 'the rules and regulations
of the Government.
He said that there were a. number of
things in the yard upon which economy
could be practiced belter than upon
the workingmen. Ho cited the passage
of the bill for iiaying workingmen <mi
holidays, and said that the intent of 4h?
? law was thai a man should be paid
for thorn, but. Secretary Herbert bad
seen lit to Issue an order that u man
must work eight 'hours prior to the
holiday, and upon this ground the ac?
tion had been taken. He said that the
Commandant said that he bad no ob?
jection 'to a telegram being sent to 'the
Secretary, requesting him not _to net
on the tinier until a committee of work?
ingmen could appear before him.
?lie said that,he told the Commandant
of the yard that he was ashamed : ?
think that Ma parity had taken such
action in reducing the worklngman's
Hon. YV. A. Y-oung. member of Con?
gress from this district, was called upon
and Bald that h;; was present foi the
purpose of offering his services lo the
workingmen of the yard. Ho would
have but.little .to sny. He. thought that
the action ' of the Labor Hoard was
wrong In cutting the men's pay. He
thought that every man, both union
and others in the threo cities, should
forward a pettltion to the Secretary
asking him to restore the pay back Ui
, where It helonged. Ho said that With
or without committee he would begin
*? on Friday to try to got the working
men's pay restored ito Its former price.
He had nothing to say about the Labor
Board. If they thought Ihcy had done
right he differed with them and that Is
all. Ho said speeches wore not what
was wanted, but action. Ho proposed
to have an interview with the Secretary
on Friday and ho asked the help of tin
Mj\ MIMalre then moved that the
meeting elect a committee to act in
conjunction with Hon. YV. A. Young In
Itho matter. It was seconded and
Oapt. John W. Happer, XV. H. Patr?
ices and John A. McDonald were nomi?
nated nfl the committee and elected.
Hon. YV. A. Young was requested to
appoint two men lo act with the. com?
mittee from Norfolk.
A motion was made that Berkley
have one member.
Mr. Fairloss thought that one man
from Portsmouth, one from Norfolk
and one from the county would bo suffi?
A motion was made 'that one be ap?
pointed from Portsmouth, one from
Norfolk, one from liorkley.
A motion was then made lo reconsid?
