THEIR BIG MASS MEETING
Resolutions Adopted Strongly Con
demning tho Action of tho Cotirtn.
Grand Master Workman Smereigu
Counsels Closer TJ nlon A mong Litibor
The imprisonment or Eugene V. Bobs,
the Western labor leader, whose incar
ceration was purstinnt to order or me
highest court lor alleged offenses against
the law, was the topic or discission, last
night, at a mass meeting or il.e labor or
ganizations or the District at Plasterer's
Hall, at tho corner or Fuor and a hair
street and Pennsylvania a -venue
Both in tho speeches made and m the
resolutions unanimously adopted, the act
or the court was denounced as the "un
wat ranted, arbitrary extension or ju
dicial power, ostensibly for the inaln-
tenauce of law, but reallj in the interest
or a corporate power which, by dishonest
methods secured from a federal court
and tlio National gouriiiuent legal and
President James T. MclTugh, of the
reileratlon ot Labor, presided, ami as the
first ortier or business called for the read
ing of the resolutions. These were pre
sented by Mr. Miiford Spohn.
MASTER WORKMAN SOVEREIGN'S
The principal speech ot the evening was
made b Mr. J. R Sovereign, the master
workman or the national organization of
the Knights or Labor, whose appearance
on the plattorm was greeted with a storm
Mr. Soereign said this country needs
recapturing bj the ballot He deplored the
fact that the laboring men ate not dis
posed to cling together, and said lie hoped
to jet lead them united to victory ; that
lie was not laboring in the interest alone of
his own organization , but lor workingmeii
every wheie, organized and unorganized.
He recounted the hihtory of tho riots in !
Chicago, and said the efforts of Bebs
throughout were for peace and order.
He kntw this, he said, ironi participation
with turn in all tae Mirring event or that
His idea was, he raid, that poverty Is
a habit, and submission to oppression is a
habit. Had all the acts, or corporate ag
gression been precipitated upon the labor
ing men at oi.ee, revolution would have
resulted, but these acts were ol gradual
DEPUTIES WERE DRUNKARDS.
He denounced the deputies, placed in
power in Chicago during tho strike as
drunkards, who, by ncklesiiiess, brought
on the scenes or violence.
"If we want to w hip the combination that
put Eugene Debs in pnton," he declared,
"we must stick together. The incarcera
tion means much. It means the elevation
of proiwrtj rights abo-ve human rights."
His opinion, brier Iy expressed, was
that Debs was imprisoned without a
trial, and that IT this can l)e done as to
one individual it could be done with all
He baid, further, that the time is coming
when the wage scale would lie abolished,
when the people would enjoj the fruits
of their own labor, and when the railroads
would be run in the interest of the masses,
not of corporate wealth, with no lioard
of directors to trample upon human libertv.
Dr. Alexander Kent followed in a speech
strongly commending the greater part of
Mr Sovereign's address He referred es
pecially to the reference made to the
necessity for united crfort and close union
upon the part or organized labor.
ALL SHOULD STICK TOGETHER
Ho depreciated the fact that when uuion
men quit work on account of oppression,
there were other men who would take their
places and uphold the baud of plutocracy
Every non union man should unite with
the union, and all should work together
for the common good.
Br Kent was heartily applauded at the
close of Ins remarks.
The other speakerb were Miiford Spohn,
James Trainer, Samuel Be Nedry and
Joseph Stviuer. They were all agreed
upon the necessity for active co-operation
of workingmoo and the use of the ballot
for the redress of thegreat wrongsbtiffered
When the speeches were ended, Piesidetit
Mellugh presented ihe following resolu
tions and thej were adopted without a
We, citizens or the District or Columbia,
hereby declare that the imprisonment of
Eugene Debs and other orficials of the
American Railway Uuion, was an un
warranted, arbitrary extension of Judicial
power, ostensibly for the maintenance of
law, but really in the miereats or a corpor
ate power, which, by dishonest methods,
seen red from a federal court and tlieua tional
government legal and armed support in
an event which was the direct result of
corporate greed aud imposition
it was an act that outlaws labor, an
ingenious legal scheme to defeat the object
or trade organization and leaves the wage
earner helpless to resist the degradiug
impositionof combined capital
It lstlielegalmanlpul.tllotiofan Injunction
which makes the wage earner a culprit
and casts about tho soulless corporate
body the protective ermine of the Judiciary.
It is a gross prostitution of a legal pro
cess which is a gteater menace to the
liberty of the citizen and the stability of
the State than are all the forces tending
to lawlessness and anarchy.
It is an an, though confirmed by the
Supreme Court or the United States, that
should be condemned as the greatest legal
wrong of the century.
H broadens and makes ipdelhble the
line between that which, is legal and that
winch Is right, and defines the issue as
between legal wrong and illegal right,
which is involved in the efforts of those
who under adverse industrial conditions,
legally defenseless, are striving lor an
equitable share of the product of tlielr
labor and the moral and intellectual ad
v.incetnent of the workers of tli is republic.
buch an abuse of power which arbitrarily
imposes upon the citizen the forfeiture
or uberty and affixes the seal of crime,
deserves the condemnation of every citien
who desires an impartial administration
of justice fetnctly within the organic la w.
Upon the defenseless heads or the repre
sentatives of labor the heavy hand or
debased justice falls, while a multitude
are licensed and permitted to appropriate
the substance of the people, outrage the
right of the citizen, rob labor of its earn
ings, force men to pauperism and crime.
Against them no injunction issues, justice
is mute, courts are impotent, legislators
truckling, and judges servile. Hedged
around by bayonets, spurned from the bar
of the Judiciary, denied due process of
law, betrajed by the legislator, and neg
lected by the executive official, the
substance and the liberty of the citizen
is in the merciless grasp of the "com
munism of pelf." Such a condition strongly
appeals to the patriotism and manhood of
the people, who, regardlesB of party
fealty in tiie past, should enter effective
protest at the ballot box.
As voter, by the power of the franchise,
from the high court or the reoplc, let an
injunction issue bearing the eeal of the
sovereignty of labor that Judges will re-pect,

Runs His Arrow. Against the Wrongs
of This Work-U-Da-y World.
Mr. Harry Shannon, already well known
as a newspaiier man, made his debut last
night as a lecturer at Met7erott Hull. He
was introduced to an audience that filled
the auditorium, by Dr. Franklin T. Howe,
as "a young newspaper man, a keen
observer or men andilfairs and a bright,
crisp and fluent writer.!'
The audience was quite en rapport with
the lecturer, who was given a hearty
demonstration and reception when he ap
peared and ga-ve his lrifiids an off-hand,
familiar salute in the semi-military ttyle.
This good feeling was kept up curing the

The lecturer then pictured the views
or all classes of society, expressing the
hope that the crisis in civilization was
approaching, and concluded with a bril
liant peroration, in which he pictured a
perfect ftv stem of civilization and human it y.
The literary stjlc of the lecture was
excellent. It was full of bright points and

Two jears ago charges were preferred
against the management ot the Weather
Bureau, involving laxness in business
methods, and investigation was made.
"The report completely exonerated Dr

upon which the charges were made did not
arise from a desire to improve the public
service At that lime tliero was some
sharp correspondence between Secretary
Morion and Dr Harrington.
This arose partly Irom misunderstand

Harrington took the position that he tield
his commission from the President and
could not he removed by the Secretary.

made tor political reasons
LOCAL MAN SELECTED
The new chic-r or the bjreatt, it is said,
will be a forecaster in the office here not
Major Dunwoody Secretary Morton said
of the case last night
"The sole consideration in making the
appointment will be to improve the effi
ciency or the rorecasting work of the
Wenther Bureau If the Weather Bureau
cannot make forecasts that are to 1m
credited, tiien it is not worth perpetu
ating, and therefore it ;s quite likely
that the coming chief of the bureau will
bo taken up from the ranks or local Tore
casters and observers.
"In all probability he will tie a man or
about twenty years' experience, with
executive abilitv, unimpeachable as to
industry, fidelity, and sobriety. He has
a high reputation as a meteorologist and
is not n graduate ot any of the great col
leges. He lias never been recommended
for the place by a single human being,
and never knew he was to be called until
actually notified. I have every conTi
dence that he wm be one of the best
officers we have hail here for a long time."
MARK'S PAINFUL. RIDE.
His Bike Took Him Over a Culvert
and Later Landed Him in a Cell.
Edward Marks, nineteen years old. might
properly be called a victim of the bicycle
craze. A bicjele, and a hired bicycle at
that, is the cause or his present facial dis
figurement, and the fact that he is now
languishing m a station house cell is also
due to that agent of human ills.
Yesterday Edward hired a bicvcleTrom
Palmer & Co., on Tenth street, between D
aud E streets northwest. It was a hand
somo surety bicjele with pneumatic tires,
and glittering handle bars, and next to
riding on a balloon, Edward thought it tho
easiest method of locomotion extant. He
decided to make a little run to Baltimore,
and started out. Progressing beautmu
ly, he got almost to Laurel, when he rode
into a culvert, a little over thirty feet
dep. Tilled to a depth oT a couple of
feet with mud and water.
A rarmor who happened to be passing
heard his distressful cries for aid, and
fislid him out of his ugly predicament,
aud after scraping himself Edward con
tinued on to Laurel, where, becoming dis
gusted with wheeling he offered to sell
tin machine for $10.
Unable to get a bidder at this price
he lowered it to 5, and tl'en the sbentf
got suspicious and held him while he
telegraphed to police headquarters in
thi3 city. Detective Boardman went out
and Edward admitted that he had hired
the wheel here. Both wheel and rider,
tho latter very much battered up, were
brought back to this city, and Edward
was locked up at the Tirst precinct
station lious", while the wheel is being held
at headquarters as evidence ot Edward's
physical and moral Tall.

Another Indignant Citizen.
Tditor Times: What is the matter -with
our city water works, and why is it that
every little rainstorm makes tho water so
muddy that it is not. fit to wash clothes in,
much less to drink? On Monday we had to
pay Tor having pump water carried in to
do our washing: at the same time we are
paving a heavy Avater rent to the city water
department. I would like to ask ir this
sort of water is furnished in any other
citv where the rate payers have the right
of suffrage? INDIGNANT CITIZEN.
