lioiiHe, where ahout sixty pIunilxTs ancl

meeting cf the industrial council.
Great indignation was arouseil anion),; lie
delegates by the report, and after a stormy
scene a boycott was declared on all of
Armour's products, no matter what kind.
1'ret-ident Hutrheson, of the council,
stated after the meeting that every indus
trial council in the country would be
asked to take similar action, as would all
labor organizations in foreign couu tries to
which Armour's products are shipped.
This would mean a tremendous struggle
involving every branch of organized labor.
The industrial council here is coir posed of
delegates from labor organizations repre

Reducing licraute It Wat " Customary."
The grievitiu committee submittsd
three propositions to Superintendent Tour
tcllote, of Armour's: To take the men back
at the old wages; to make a reduction of
S instead of 10 per cent, in pay and pay
one aud one-half time for overtime and
Sunday; aud to take the men back at the
10 per cent, reduction, but pay the extra
for overtime and Sunday. All were de
clined, reported the committee, and Su
perintendent Tourtellote declined to make
any proposition at all. He added, accord
InK to the committee report, that in times
like the present it was customary to make
reductions, but that his compativ was do
ing a good business and the reduction was
not demanded by the condition of its
trade. This was the direct cause of the
boycott being declared. The council con
sidered the statement as authorized by
Sir. Armour, and not the individual opin
ion of his Kansas City superintendent,
and the boycott was declared amid much

Louisville, Sept. 4. The final confer
ence between the chiefs and the trainmen
on one side aud the leading officials of the
Louisville and Nashville on the other
lasted for six hours. The agreement
reached is this: On Dec. 1 there will lie
another conference as to the restoration of
rates. In the meanwhile the 10 per tent,
cut will operate as President Smith's order
originally intended it should. AVI en the
deferred meeting Ixtween the trainmen
aud the officials occurs Dec. 1 the business
before it will lie the consideration of the
restoration of rates, and this will depend
upon the volume of the ruad's business at
that time aud its ability financially to
restore wages to the standard existing
before the cut.
The Louisville and Nashville does not
bind Itself to restore rates, regardless of
the business done, as the trainmen at first
-wanted the management to do. There is
no conditional feature; in other words the
question of restoration is left open for ad
justment at the time fixed upon. At that
time the men may strike or not as they
choose, if the wages are not restored, but
the men for the time accepted assurances
that wages would be restored as soon as
possible. The agreement is a contract and
each party has a copy.
There is much dissatisfaction among the
rank and file with the agreement and al
ready the train hands at Howell, near
vansville, Iud., have struck, although
the authority for striking is not known,
and it is a distinct violation of the agree
ment entered into by the officers of the
striken). The train men here say they
will submit, but the machinists have
Toted to keep Dp their strike.
' SITUATION AT CHICAGO.
Big Parade of Labor Sorletie. Keller for
Chicago, Sept. 4. With Mayor Harrison
at its head acting as honorary chief mar
shal, the great 'labor parade took place to
day. It was claimed last week that there
would be 40,000 men in line, as at least 110
organizations bad signified their intention
to take part. The feature of the parade
was the banners. '. There was an intense
but good natured rivalry among the vari
ous unions to wiu the prize for the best
banner and nearly all of them had ordered
new flags of appropriate design; The pro
cession formed in the vicinity of Brick
layers' hall, Peoria and Monroe streets, at
S o'clock sharp and murched from ttis
point east on Monroe to llalsted street,
south on Halsted to Jackson, east on Jack
son to State, north on State to Laks and
west on Lake to LaSalJe, where it dis
banded. Jt presented a flue appearance all along
the line and was undoubtedly very large
There were blacksmith shops on floats and
many other industries were similarly rep
resented. Each organization wore some
thing distinctive that was uniform to that
organization, and although there was
nothing gaudy about it, the parade was
very neat as to the "get-up" of the men
who took part. There were eight divis
ions, led by the Sewer Laborers' union
with the Machinists acting as rear guard,
and each divuiou was preceded by a baud.

The Death Keport from the Sea Island of
Charleston. S. C , Sept. 4 The News
and Courier has made careful investiga
tion of the condition of afl.iirs on the
coast of Carolina.aiid finds that its reports
have not been exaggerated. The loss of
life will aggregate S00 in Beaufort county.
Between Charleston and Savannah the
storm swept away most of the homes as
well as growing crops and left the people
in a terrible state. The loss of l.fe and
property was fouud to be greatest on St.
Helena, Lady's island, Wassa, Coosaw,
Paris, Dawfuskie and Dathan islands.
These islands, together with Port Royal
island, have a population of about 15.000,
most of whom are negroes engaged in
raising long staple cotton and working in
the phosphate fields. Estimates at this
time as to the loss of life are incomplete.
There is no communication between cer
tain of the islands and reports of death
are slow in reaching the coroner. There
are a great many lives lost that will never
lie reported, as the bodies have been cov
ered with sea weed or washed out to sea.
Ex-Congressman Elliott says that
"starvation is sure and imminent." A
relief committee has lieen organized com
