Chicago, Sept. 7. Labor was abroad in
Chicago to-dny. At about 10 a.m. the
hosts started on their parade, and for
hours the column moved through the
streets to the music of innumerable banls,
until the leading division that of the
Trade and Labor assembly had reached
the point of dispersion, the lake front.
Forming at Bricklayers' hall, ccr
ner of Peoria and Monroe streets, west
aide, the procession took the following
route: East on Monroe to Desplaines, to
Harrison, to Franklin, to Monroe, to Mar
ket, to Lake, to Wabash, to Madison, to
Michigan avenue, south on Michigan ave
nue and counter-march back to Van B i
ren. This was the Trade and Labor as
The llnildlnc Trade Conncil.
The Building Trades Council fell out f t
Dearborn street and Lake and marched
to Washington square, where the column
opened to allow the brass molders to
march through en route to their picnic at
Ogden's grove. The remainder of tie
column then broke ranks and proceeded to
the picnic at Sharpshooters' park by the
Lincoln and Clybourn avenue cars. There
were also two trains on the Northwesters
railroad for the park, one at 12:30 and one
at 2:30 p. m. Following are the speakers
who wereatthe park: Hon. Jerry Simpsot,
Kansas; W. F. Rightmire, secretary cf
the National Citizens' Industrial All:
ance; State Senator Newell, Representa
tives William Burns and Scaife, Senator
Andy Connor, the Hon. C. S. Darrow and
Concert at Lake Front Park.
Upon completing the countermarch
thousands of the Trade and Labor assem
bly parade shopped at the Lake Front park
and listened to a concert given by the Chi
cago Musical society, which was the most
notable musical event in the history of
Chicago labor. The Chicago Musical soci
ety, an organization of Chicago's best mu
sicians, donated the services of a band ot
forty of their besf artists to lead the pa
rade. At the end of the countermarch the
procession formed in a great hollow square
on the lake front.into which all the bands in
the parade were massed into onegreatbaud
ot over 1,000 men. which then performed
a new musical work, entitled the "Federa
tion March," written fur the occasion by
H. H. Thiele, leader of McVicker's thea
tre orchestra, and dedicated to the Amer
ican Federation of Labor. After this the
Trade and Labor assembly proceeded to
their picnic grounds at Gardner's p.trk.
Something About the Parade.
In the Trade aud Labor assembly ranks
there were five divisions and forty-four
different organ iznt ions, the carpenters
showing up largest in point of numlers.
There were five divisions and fifty-six or
ganizations in the Building Trades
Council line. Numerous floats were in the
ranks upon which men were at work at
their trades, and some sort of simple uni
form had been adopted by every body
taking part in the demonstration. Tuere
were innumerable trausparencies, conspic
uous among them being those of the iron
molders, which were lettered with the fol
lowing mottoes: "Iron Molders' uuion
Nos. 33 and 2-9; 'United we stand, divided
we fall;' 'We believe in arbitration;' 'The
laborer is worthy of his hire;' 'Eight hours
a day means more pay;' 'Equal richts for
all, special privileges for none;' 'The sin
gle tax will do it;' 'Our country firt, our
Keriewed by the Mayor.
The Typographical union always make
a feautre of these demonstrations and to
day was, no exception. They were out
in great force and presented a neat and
attractive appearance. A reviewing stand
had been erected on Michigan avenue
where Mayor Washburne reviewed the
procession, being accompained on the
stand by the city council, and judges of
the various courts of the city and county.
In accepting the invitation to review the
parade the mayor said: "Every good citi
sen is in perfect sympathy with all move
ments which tend to uplift aud benefit
mankind, and the conservative, patient,
continued effort of intelligent labor is
gradually but surely teaching the public
a lesson which can not fail to redound to
the benefit of humanity, to the advance
ment of our country, and to the everlast
ing honor of the human race."
Crowds of Sightseers.
Tbe route of march was lined with
sightseers who cheered the men as they
trudged along. Every window and other
point of vantage along the line was occu
pied by interested witnesses of the
display. The number of men in line is
difficult to estimate at this writing, but it
was great there were tens of thousands
the most conservative putting the num
ber Bt 30,000. The thief marshal was
James Skallerup, president of the Trade
and Labor assembly. At the parks there
were dense crowds and excellent pro
grammes of speaking, athletics, dancing,
etc., had been arranged, which were thor
oughly enjoyed by all.
CHICAGO'S GRANT MONUMENT.
Preparation, for the Unveiling Ceremo
nle Low Fares on the Railways.
CHICAGO, Sept. 7. The trustees of the
Grant MouomenC association are making
preparations for the unveiling of the
statue in Lincoln park. The executive
committee held a meeting Saturday. The
committee on transportation, of which
George H. Hanford is chairman, reported
that every railway line terminal at Chi
cago has consented to make an extremely
low excursion rate. Half rates will be
charged by all the western, northwestern
and southwestern roads. Tickets will lie
sold on these roads Oct. 6 from points
within 150 miles of Chicago, Oct, 7, from
points within 300 miles, and be good re

association roads will also give half rates
with the Chicago and Ohio river lines.
A General Invitation to Attend.
The committee wishes it understood
that every military and civic organiza
tion in the country is invited to attend
and participate. It will be impossible to
send invitation to all and a general invi
tation will be prepared and given out
through the press. Monday evening the
local executive committee of the Army of
the Tennessee will meet at tLt iV.aia
house to make arrangements for the
twenty-third reunion of tbe army, to be
held on the date of tbe unveiling. General
Miles has announced bis inteution to
make tbe route of tbe procession from the
lake front as direct as possible. Organi
sations wishing to participate should
notify Generul Joseph Stockton, 622 Opera
I WOMEN VOTE FOR SUNDAY REST.
The Lady Managers of the World. Fair
Chicago, Sept. 7. At a meeting Satur
day of the lady's board of managers of the
World's fair the Sunday rest question
was taken up at the solicitation ot Colonel
Shepard and Bishop Fowler, and iu the
debate that followed such eminent work
ers in the woman's cause as Miss Frances
Willard and Mrs. Isabella Beecher Hook
er were ranged on opposite sides. Miss
Willard made a strong plea for a closed
fair on Sunday, while Mrs. Hooker took
the other aide. She said that speaking as
a Christian she believed that Sunday was
made for man's enjoyment.
A Plea for the Workmen.
Said she: "The advocates of Sunday
closing say that the laboringmen will be
given an extra holiday in order that they
may see the fair. Are they sure that holi
days will be granted? How many of our
stores will be closed to let the toilers see
the fairf How often will they close? We
hope to see all nationalties and creeds rep
resented at the fair. Would it not he
bigotry to say to tbe Mohammedans 'This
is our God's day and we won't permit you
to see our fair today, because we are
Christians?' Is it not bigotry to close the
fair on our Sabbath and yet desecrate the
stored holidays of the Jews, Mohamme
dans and hundreds of other creeds?"
Kesnlt of the Vote.
Finally, after everybody on tie board
had had their say, the Sunday closing
resolution was put before the bouse. The
roll was called, but several members de
clined to answer, and about twenty-five
ladies left the room. The vote was then
taken, and resulted in the passage of Mrs.
Lucas' resolution by a vote of 56 to 3ti.
Had the ladies who retired remained and
voted as their conduct indicated, it would
Lave been defeated by five or six majority.
Rev. Lorimer's Surprise.
Rev. George C. Lorimer Joined the
ranks of the free Sunday people in his
pulpit yesterday, and sent his congrega
tion home with a buzzing in their ears.
He declared that the peculiar sanctity of
tbe communion, the priest and the church
edifice had passed away, and attacked
many other things that the orthodox con
sider fundamental. But the most signifi
cant of all, at this particular time, he
took issue with tbe Sabbatarians. His
words on this subject were of a general
character, but their meaning could not
be misconstrued. "There is," he declared,
"no longer any sacred time. The spirit of
tbe fourth commandment remains, but its
letter has passed away." Men should do
as they like on Sunday.

LOOKS VERY MUCH LIKE CHICAGO.
Tbe League Pennant Likely to Come Wejt
This Year. -
Chicago, Sept. 7. Captain Anson's
team started for the east with a lead of
53 points. This means that tbe Chicago
will probably fly the championship flag
in 1892. The club is scheduled to play
twelve games in the east and three in Cin
cinnati. On the last trip Chicago cap
tured eleven out of fifteen games With
average luck Chicago ought to win at
least five of the fifteen games to be played.
This would cut the Colts' percentage
down to .Sin. Allowing Boston the liberal
estimate of ten games won and five lost
its standing would be only .5M, or" points
less than Chicago. But should Chicago
lose twelve games, which is nt impossi
ble, and Boston capture twelve games,
then the beaneaterswoud have a lead of 13
points and have the pennant in their grasp.
