'THIS MORNING'S PARADE.
The Ptente aad Celebration at Harper
aad Robin ton', rov Speech
and Other IVainrr.
Kindly nature was in thorough sympa
thy with the sons of toil in the celebration
of their holiday today. She smiled her
prettiest in honor of the occasion. It has
truly been a lovely day for what has al
ready become to be regarded as one of
our few American holidays Labor Day,
and before many years it will be in truth
a great national holiday, being already
fittingly so recognized in many of the
state of the union, including Illinois.
TBI CITY DEMONSTRATIONS.
It is a splendid idea, that adopted by the
labor organizations of the three cities of
Rock Island, Moline and Davenport of
celebrating Labor Day, jointly aud al
ternately in each of the cities. The first
of these celebrations was held in Rock
Inland three years ago. Then it went to
Davenport, last year to Moline and this
year it came back to Rock Lland . Each
year has seen a larger and more elaborate
celebration than the jet-r preceding, and
this year was attended by the greatest
Rock Island put on her best appear
ance in honor f the day. Gay colored
bunting was everywhere displayed, flags
floated from the roofs of buildings and
from windows, and throughout the city
there was the appearance of gala day at
tire. THE PROCESSION
with which the day's festivities were in
augurated, formed at Twentj -third street
and Fourth avenue at 9 o'clock this
morning under tbe dirt-ciion of T. A.
Pender, marshal of the day, and his
aides, R. C. Llojd, Frank Wic&and. U.
W. Battles, Hamlin Hull, Matt Lamb, H.
Jacoby and T. F. Wheeian. The column
was made up with little delay, Jhe so
cieties and floats coming from Moline and
Davenport in good season, and the col
umu proceeded over tbe line of march
heretofore published in The Ahgcs The
procession wound its way through the
principal streets of tbe city, and termin
ated at the Harper aod Robins n groves in
tbe east part of tbe city, where the cele
bration was held, the liue being made up

At the conclusion of the parade the
judges of the best appearing marching
society, Mesjrs. T. J. Morgan, of Chi
cago, M. J. Kramer, of Davenport, and
T. H. Thomas, of Rock Island, awarded
the premium, a handsome gavel, to the
Rock Island painters. All tbe organiza
tions presented an attractive and appro
priate appearance, especially those fully
uniformed, and elicited frtqieot ap
plausd as they passed through the
streets. Tbe floats were for the most
part quite elaborate and many were em
blem tie in a practical as well as an il
lustrative sense of the Industries they
represented. Those of Downing Bros.,
of Huber 'a City brewery and of PfaS
Bros, were exceedingly creditable.
AT ins riCNIC GROUNDS.
This afternoon the exercises arc being
held at the picnic grounds. J. W. Cav
anaugh presided and introduced Mayor
McConochie, who delivered an address of
welcome, when T. J. Kramer, of Daven
port, was introduced and spoke in Ger
man, after which came F. J. Morgan, of
Chicago, the orator of tbe day. whose
subject was "Tbe Present Condition of
Labor." Mr. Morgan treated of the or
igin and purpose of organized labor and
the character of today's demonstration.
He emphasized the necessity of prevent
ing it being a mere emp'y show. He
spoke of the essential character of the
orators on such an occasion as Libor day
and urged an earnest and outspoken dis
cussion of the labor question. He
dwelt on the labor question
and its condition ten years ago in
regard to earnings and the practically un
changed conditions today, notwithstand
ing the development in the production
price and the relations of employer and
employed. He spoke of the natural cre
ation of indifference, misunderstanding
and the growth of antagonism as illus
tratedby the TJ . S. labor report for 1887,
which shows in five years from 1SSI to
'86. 25,000 strikes and lockouts involving
a million and a half of employes. These
evidences of antagonism have not changed
as shown by the report of Commissioner
Peck, of New Yora, which incidentally
states that for the years 189U and 1891
there were 10.776 strikes, which at the
same ratio for five years would be 82.333.
The only remedy for such a condition.
Mr. Morgan said, was education of the
people, tbe application of a combination
of political with t?ccnxjmic action.
When the striker is met by the concen
trated force of capital backed by the
armed forces of tbe ate be must look to
something else as a weepon with which
to fight his battle, and that weapon is
la awarding tbe prize to the best ap-
perinff society tire judges submitted the
Rock Islaxd, 111., Sept. 5. The com
mittee appointed to act as judges in the
fnendiy contest for the prize, desire first
to congratulate the different labor on
ions of tbe tri cities on tbe very fine ap
pearance tbey made in tbe parade this
morning, and to etate that tbey have
awarded tbe prize solely from the stand
point of what thev considered the beat
representation of their craft in their
daily occupation, be.ievmg that the mam
object of Labor day is to give tbe gea-,
eral public a true idea of labor and to
convince tbem that it is deserving -of
larger compensation and not less, so from
that basis we award the price to the
Painters' Union of Rock Island, for tbe
best representation of their trade and
craft in the parade, and desire to com
pliment the Plasterers' Union as the next
best inconveying the same idea.
Respectfully, T. J. MoatGaM,
T. H. Thomas.
Afterward there were sports and this
evening there is to he a dance.
