To-morrow lots of them will say: “Never mind; both of my own are long enough.” But all of them will say: “Let’s go to the WHEN and get a new Coat.” Why anew Coat? Be cause their old ones have been but tonholed to pieces. Why the WHEN? Where else would they go? “Highest quality and lowest price” have long ago settled that. For this rush we have in new pat terns of Globe Checks a four-button cutaway frock. The fit is equal to any merchant tailor’s effort; the dif ference being one-third less in cost. It is very handsome —not “Hansom cab,” but “handsome is as handsome does.” TRY IT ON! THE WHEN MORE SOUTHERN ELOQUENCE. Gov. Watts’s Fulsome Eulogy of Jeff Davis and the South’s Lost Cause. Montgomery, Ala., April 30.—Owing to the crush of report last night, the following speech of Governor Watts, in prese ating Mr. Davis, yes terday, was crowded out: “I can scarcely express to you how proud I am in having the honor of introducing before you to-day the ex-President of the confederate States, now knowu as the chief of the lost cause. Before he was elected President of the confederate States, I knew him simply by repu tation as the fearless commander on the field of Buena Vista, as the distinguished Secretary of War in the Cabinet of President Pierce, and as the representative of the grand old State of Mis sissippi, in the United States Senate. After he was elected President of the confederate States I, without any seeking on iny part, was selected as one of the members of his Cabinet. I was, therefore, associated with him for eighteen months in intimate aud almost daily relations. Before I knew him personally I admired him as an orator, a statesman. When I left his Cabi net, in October, 1863, after having been selected by the good people of Alabama as their chief magistrate, 1 not only admit ed him as a soldier and statesman, but I loved him as a man; and now after twenty years of an eventful career he appears before us to-day, and that which calls him here to-day is full of memories and fills us with emotions. I see, mmy mind’s eye, two great sections of a republic of States, divided, two great peoples springioe from the same sod, speaking the same language, worshiping the same God, and professing to love the grand prin ciples of republican government, under hostile banners. I see a four years’ war; I see alternate victories and defeats; 1 see the horror, and the woe, and the gioom which enveloped our land as with some mighty funereal pall; and now that the war has ended I sea the sistorhdod of our fair countrymen, with every return of spring, cast ing flowers upon the graves of the honored dead. Are we ashamed of this homage to the memory of our lost ones? No, no, no, my fellow-country men! They fought for liberty, they died for liberty, and posterity will treasure their names to the' most distant times. [Applause.] We are called here to-day to erect a monument over those noble heroes who fell in a glorious cause, and he is a coward, let him live in the North or in the South, or in the East or iu the West, who would cast a slur upon the emotions which animate the great people of Alabama in the dis play of their affection to-day. [Prolonged ap plause.] My felldw-ciiizens, these graves of our soldiers deserve the erection of a monument I have not forgotten an incident that happened during the progress of the war. I remember, after the battle of Gettysburg, the turning point, perhaps, in the history of the war between the States, that Abraham Lincoln, standing upon the heights of Gettysburg, on Cemetery Hill, surveying on one side the graves of the Union dead and on the other, in the valley beneath, the graves of the confederate dead, some gentlemen stepping up to him said, in substance: ‘Mr. Lin coln, the man who defended the heights will live in history.’ ‘Yes,’said Mr. Lincoln, ‘these men will live in history, and likewise will the men who attacked these heights live in history.’ And I, too, most fondly hope they will, my country men. Fellow-citizens, thai was a prophecy from a great and good man. When tne shadows of prejudice and passion, generated by the war, shall have passed away—for twenty years is a day to them—the dear people of the North will indorse, the dear people of the North will fulfill, the prophecy of Abraham Lincoln. Now, fellow-citizens, erect this monument to perpetuate the manly courage of the dead; build it so high that its peak will kiss the first beam of the morning sun. Let it be grand in all its pro portions—grand as the courage, bravery, forti tude of our men whose memory it is intended to perpetuate. Carve on it the estimate in which you hold these dead heroes, and leave a space upon the northern portion of it for another peo ple, in some future time, to carve the estimation in which they hold these dear boys who died in attempting to achieve what they believed to be their rights and the rights of constitutional lib erty. The people of the North, the magnanimity of the North, the sterling men, the good men of the North, will some day write upon that monu ment the fact that these brave heroes who are dead here were their common countrymen, and were defenders of liberty. [Enthusiastic ap plause.] Fellow-citizens, the time is comiug, and I believe it is not. far hence, when the people of the North, and the people of the East, the people of the West—the people of the South already do it—will take up this bloody shirt, that has been flaunted in our eyes for twenty years, and will fold it iup and bury it so deep tnat the hand of resurrection will never find it. [Applause and cheers.] They will bury it in some secluded spot, with no headstone to mark its eternal resting-place. Now, fellow citizens, I desire to introduce to you this grand old man. I desire to say to you why we lore him.- We love him because he has ever been true to constitutional government; we love him, because he has ever been true to the people of the South, and we love him, above all, because, in the time of mis fortune in the prison at Fortress Monroe, his hands were crossed and mangled for Southern blood. ILong applause.] And hence we love him now. Now, Mr. Davis, [Mr. Davis takes position beside the speaker] I desiro to present you to our Alabama people, and you must per mit me to say, fellow citizens, that in all my reading of ancient and modern history, I have never read of a single man who possessed the sterling qualities if Jefferson Davis.’’ | Long and repeatedly renewed applause and cheers as ex Governor Watts ended and Mr. Da vis stood forth. | Failures for the Week. New York, April 30.—The business failures occurring throughout the country during the last seven days, as reported to R. G. Dun & Cos., number, for tno United States, 189, and for Canada eighteen, or a total of 207, as compared with a total of 194 last week, and 182 the week previous to the last.. The Western and Pacific States this week furnish about one-half of the entire number of business casualties reported. “I find a ready sale for yoar Atblophoros, and each customer recommends it to bis neigh bor,” writes C. P. Zimmerman, a druggist of Terre Haute, Ind., in giving his testimonial to the merits of the great remedy for rheumatism. • THE INDUSTRIAL TURMOIL The Eight-Hour Agitation Passes Beyond Control of the Men Who Started It. Strikes Follow Each Other So Rapidly that the Engineers of the Movement Admit They Are Redaced to a State of Chaos. Twenty-Five Thousand Chicago Work ingmen Ceased Labor Yesterday.

The Outlook at Pittsburg and New York—Jay Gould’s Latest Contribution to Labor Lit erature —Strike News of All Kinds. TBK CHICAGO SITUATION. Twenty-five Thousand Men Cease Work, To He Followed by as Many More To-day. Chicago, April 30.— The Times, to morrow, summarizing the labor situation iu Chicago, will say: “Twenty-five thousand is a fair estimate of the number of men who quit work yesterday (Friday), and walked out of the various shops and factories in Chicago, because their employers would not consent to an eight *hour working day and the same wages which have been paid when ten hours were the rule. How many will do the same to-day (Saturday) is problematical, but the prospects for a repeti tion of the performances of to-day are exceed ingly brilliant With the furniture people it was practically a general lock-out all over the city, and all the 7,500 men employed in the various Chicago factories are to-day idle, and probably will continue so for some time to come. The refusal of the manufacturers to grant the demands of the men was the result of a meeting of last week, when a manufacturers’ association was for pied and an executive committee was appoint ed to take charge of the business of tho various nlembers. It was then decided, if the men de manded eight hours on yesterday (Friday), every factory should shut down, not to be reopened until this committee should so decide, and upon terms that that body should dictate men. This agreement was carried onv to the letter, and to-lay every furniture factory in Chicago, including Brunswick & Balke and Rothschild Brothers, is practically in the hands of the executive committee of the Manufacturers’ Association, And will not be re opened until it so decides. A somewhat similar situation exists in the lumber trade, including the planing mills and the box fac tories. No concerted action was had among the employers until to-day, but all ex cept three refused the demands of the men, and in a meeting afterwards decided to stand by one another, and not to take their men back except at the bosses’ terms. The number of men in this trade out of employment in consequence can only be approximated, but 8,000 is a low figure. With the iron people the idea of running only eight hours a day could not be entertained for a moment by the larger concerns with expensive plants, and in conse quence all who were waited on refused their men’s demands, and Crane Bros , with 1,500 em ployes, set the example of closing down, arid with the exception of the rolling-mills, where no demands were made and no trouble is antici pated, the majority of the large iron works of Chicago are to-day closed. The railroads have, with one exception, so far escaped trouble, but their time will come to-day, and it is feared that when it does come, its extent cannot be foretold. The packers will probably escape without serious trouble. The employers are somewhat disposed to yield in part to the de mands of the men, while the latter are not At all disposed to strike. Still, it depends a good deal on what Armour will do. Though the interests named are the most directly affected, every bus iness in the city is more or less implicated, and this morning the general unrest among the workingmen is exactly balanced by the anxiety among the employers. Details of Yesterday’s Movements. Chicago, April 30. —The Daily News this morning says: “The supreme officers of the po lice department have ceasfld their attempt to smooth over the fears of the last few weeks re garding the labor movement. Their sole idea now is that the approaching strikes of Saturday will cause a great deal of trouble. It was de cided last night to place the entire police force on reserve early Saturday morning. The entire force will bo kept at the stations ready for im mediate duty at a moment’s notice. It is said that the matter of procuring special policemen has also been canvassed, and that many hundred additional men can be pressed into service as special policemen as soon as any serious out break should occur.” “We are rapidly drifting into a state of chaos,’ said George A. Shilling, one of the acknowl edged leaders of the eight-hour movement this afternoon, to a reporter. “Strikes are occurring by tne half dozen all over the city, and the cen tral executive, which should be the guide and director of the labor forces, has no means of keeping back or checking them. With a view of bringing order out of this condition of affairs, I waited upon Mr. Brown, president of the Trades and Labor Assembly, and we resolved to form a central government body, consisting of dele gates from the Trades Assembly, the Central Union, the eight-boor committee, and every other organization involved in this struggle. This body will meet every night to size up the actions and movements of the day. Every strike will be reported and recorded, and general uniform ity and reciprocity insured.” The eight-hour movement wt emphasized this morning, in advance of the liv announced for its inauguration. Clark Biftthers & Co.’s furniture factory, at Blue Island avenue and Robey street, is idle, the 500 employes having struck. The men demanded eight hours' work and ten hours’ pay. The firm told them they could not agree to this, and they all left. The Arm says the factory will be kept closed until the labor question is definitely settled. The St. Nicholas Toy Company informed its 1,500 employes that it would not grant the ten hours’ pay for eight hours’ work. The employes are still at work. The Hercules iron works, on Canal street, will inaugurate the eight-hour system with the ten hour pay, beginning to-morrow, for one month. The Chicago & Northwestern Railway Com pany has effected a settlement with its 1,800 shopmen, near this city, who demanded an eight hour working day. The company grants a nine hour working day with full pay, and made a con cession to the men in the matter of railroad fare between this city and the shops. The chairman of the committee representing the workmen says: “The men have decided to acceptthe proposition for the present The original demand still re mains in force, and we expect the company to act on it at some future time, when business may improve. That is the way it stands, and I think I can say, authoritatively, that there will be no trouble here.” One hundred freight-handlers on the Grand Trunk railroad made a demand for an eight-hour working day with no decrease in pay at noon to day, and said they would wait for a decision un til noon to-morrow. The immense iron works of the Crane Broth ers’ Manufacturing Company will close down to morrow night for several weeks, at least. The company intimates that it will then inaugurate the eight-hour System, and deems the shut down necessary to arrange for the new order of affairs. The Goss & Phillips Manufacturing Company, which owns very extensive planing mills, has arranged for an eight-hour working day with ail its employes, on the basis of eight hours’ pay, be ginning to-morrow. Committees representing the 2,000 men em ployed in the Chicago rolling mills, after consult ing with the owners of the mills, reported back to the men, and they decided, for the present, to continue working on the eight-hour plan. The employes of the extensive coal docks and yards at South Chicago have struck for an in crease of 2 cents per ton for handling coal. As there were soveral cargoes at the dock awaitiug to be discharged, the companies had no option, and paid thawnen the Advance. The freight-handlers on the Burlington and Alton roads have stopped work, owing to a re fusal to accede to a demand for eight hours. As soon as the freight now ou baud is cleared up the houses will close. At 3 o’clock this afternoon the 350 employes of the Union Brass Manufacturing Company quit work. They demanded eight hours’ work and eight hours’ pay, which the company refused. All the plumbing shops in the city have con ceded eight hours’ work at nine hours’ pay. Mr. Gano, foreman of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy out-freight house, called on Vice pres ident Potter and Superintendent Stone at noon to-day and asked for an increase of pay for his men for ten hours’ work, and also that the sala ries of the check clerks be equalized. He re turned to the depot a little before 1 o'clock, and reported that his request had not been granted, though Messrs. Potter and Stone bad promised to see what could be done at some futuro time, when matters had quieted down a little. By 4 o’clock in the afternoon all of the Burling ton freight-house men, numbering nearly 300. had gone out The Chicago & Alton men went out very shortly thereafter. Tho employes of the furniture manufacturers, R. E. Poplo and William Giffeert., numbering 1,500 men, struck, to-day, for eight hours’ work and ten hours’ pay. One hundred and forty sewing machine mak ers, employed by the June Manufacturing Com pany, also struck upon receiving a refusal of similar demands. The Excelsior iron works and the .Link Belt Manufacturing employing, resoeet ively, 100 and 165 men, decided, to-night, to shut down to-morrow indefinitely, owine to the exist ing conditions in the labor situation. The strike at Rothschilds’s furniture works has widened. Reports were received to-day that the workmen in the firm’s shops at St. Louis, KansAg City and Denver struck this morning, in company with the men here and at Cincinnati. To morrow morning the Furniture-workers’ Union, numbering about 4,000 men, will hold a meetine.-to be preceded by a parade in honor of the “emancipation of the workingman." The union say they have been workimr for the eieht hour system for twenty years, aud are uow go ing to celebrate its Adoption. The proprietors of every one of the ninety threeluraber yards in the city received, to day, a circular from the lumbermen’s union, dernand ine substantially ton hours’ pay for eight hours’ work, commencing May 3. A meeting was at once called, at which eighty four of the ninety three proprietors were represented. All of them had been taken by surprise, there having been little or no indication of an eight hour movement among the men in the lumberyards. The pro prietors, in their meeting, did not commit them selves on any course in regard to the demand, further than to appoint a committee to meet daily and endeavor to settle the problem with the men in the various yards on the basis of mutual concessions by the workmen and the proprietors. According to a statement by the chairman of the committee appointed at the meeting, a general strike in the lumber yards of Chicago would directly involve workmen to the number of at least 12,000. The Chicago & Alton freight handlers have stopped work. The men had a meeting after quitting work this evening, and decided to join the eight hour movement should the company not comply with their petition to-morrow morn ing. It was agreed to assemble at the freight house at the usual time, but to make no move toward going to work unless the company sent word that the eight-hour rule had been favorably considered. The Northwestern freight-handlers on the Ga lena division worked on through tho day without taking any action looking toward going out. The demand made by them had not been referred to the higher officials nor acted upon by the latter. Hope was entertained that the division superin tendent and the local agent could dissuade the men, and thus avoid what would otherwise come to an open rupture. The men on the Wisconsin division made no move. If the others insist upon a formal reply it will probably be given them to morrow, and there is no doubt but it will be in the form of a complete refusal. The Milwaukee & St. Paul men continued their labors without interruption until the clos ing hour. It was stated that they were to have an answer at 4 o’clock, and at that time the loral agent. C. E. Wilsod. informed the committee that the company would unqualifiedly refuse to accede to the demands. The Grand Trunk freight handlers made a de mand of the same tenor —eight hours and no re duction of wages. They are promised an answer at noon to-morrow. Rumors were plentiful in regard to all of the other roads, but were unreli able and untruthful, born of the excitement and circulated as the strike gossip of the day. THU MISSOURI PACIFIC. Renewal of the Rumor that the Strike Will Shortly Be Declared Ended. St. Louis. April 30.—1 tis generally expected here that the offer made by the citizens’ com mittee to the general executive board of the Knights of Labor to attempt to secure the rein, statement of the strikers upon the railway t, will be accepted, and that the strike will be declared off in a few days. The general board met in executive session yesterday, and in the afternoon were in commu nication with the citizens’ committee. Their willingness to end the strike, provided an assur ance could be had that the agreement of 1885 between the railroad and its employes would be observed, was expressed by both the general board and the joint executive committees. Tne proposition made by the citizens was discussed until an early hour this morning, and au answer to it will be returned to-day. A Threatening Rumor, Kansas City, Mo., April 30.—A sensational rumor was afloat this afternoon to the effect that a final effort would be made by the Missouri Pa- PRICE FIVE CENTS. cific stikers to cripple the company; that they will attempt to take possession of the yards here, auq at Cypress to-morrow at noon. The rumor cannot be traced to a reliable source, but that some disturbance is apprehended, appears from specials to the Evening Star from Wyandotte, Kan., stating that the sheriff of that county is in communication with Governor Martin, and has requested that militia be ordered there. The latest information from Wyandotte con tradicts the report that the sheriff there had called ou the governor for the militia. The law and order league of Wyandotte passed a resolu tion to-night declaring they would be prepared to put down any disturbance that might arise there to-morrow. The House Select Committee. St. Louis, Mo., April 30.—Wm. H. Crain, ol Texas, of the congressional labor investigating committee, arrived this morning from Wash ington, and immediately proceeded to the Southern Hotel, where he waa met by his col leagues and the committee went into executive session, which lasted the greater part of the morning. Immediately upon adjourning, Chair man Curtin handed a list of the names of the most prominent men of St Louis to Sergeant at-Arms Coombs aud requested him to secure their attendance at a meeting to bo held thi| afternoon, when the taking of testimony will be begun. It was afterwards decided by the committee to see the delegation of citizens, railroad official! and Knights of Labor separately, and consult with them in regard to the condition of affairs, who shall be examined by the committee as to the best means of obtaining the information de sired. At about noon a delegation of citizens, headed by Mayor Francis, and including S. W. Cobb, president of the Merchants’ Exchange, and other prominent business men, had an hour’s conference with the committee. A few minutes later Vice-president Hoxie, General Su perintendent Kerrigan, Superintendents Sibley, of Sedalia, and Herrin, of Texas, and Judge Por tia, general attorney of the Missouri Pacific sys tem, were invited to the committee room, and will be followed by a delegation of prominent; Knights of Labor. When these consultations shall have been terminated the committee will decide whether it wilt stop here now and take testimony, or whether it will appoint sub-com mittees to go to Sedalia, Kansas City, Atchison, Fort Worth and other places on the system, and return here and examine witnesses. The committoe concluded to-night that, Sun day being so near, tliej* would remain over to morrow and begin taking testimony. Vice president Hoxie will be the first witness, but whether his testimony will be taken in full to morrow, or whether the day will be divided between him and prominent representatives ot the Knights of Labor, has not yet been decided. The committee is also as yet uncertain whether it will divide now and send sub committees west and south, and return and' close the taking of evidence at this point, or re main here and finish the St. Louis testimony, and then go out on the road, but the chances seem to be in favor of the former plan. The developments of to morrow will no doubt decide this question. Mr. Hoxie has presented a list of some four hundred witnesses to the committee. The meetings of the committee will be held is one of the United States court-rooms in the cus tom-house. AT PITTSBURG. General Strike of Cabinet-Makers— Movemontl in Other Trades. Pittsburg, April 30.—A general strike ol cabinet-makers, for an advance of 20 per cent, in wages and reduction of the working hours from ten to eight hours, has been ordered for to-mor row by the Allegheny County Union, which em braces all the cabinet-makers, burnishers and carvers, some three hundred in number in th< two cities. The manufacturers are unanimoui in their refusal to grant the increase, claiming that it is impossible to concede the terms de sired, and prefer to close their factories. A dull trade and low prices are given as the reason. The workers are determined to secure the ad vance, and a long strike is promised. The carpenters of Allegheny county will striki on Monday for nine hours as a day’s work, and i 10 per cent advance in wages. At a meeting lasi night it was announced that the Master Carpen ters had rejected the offer, and it was decided to call out ail the carpenters in the county on Mon day. At Imperial, Pa., the coal-miners will inaug urate a strike to-morrow for an advance of a half cent per bushel. The Scott-Haven miners em ployed in W. L. Scott’s mines expect to resume work on Monday at the advance. The fans and furnaces have been started, aud a general re sumption is looked for by the strikers. The strike at Browns Wayne iron and steel mills has been amicably settled, and work was re sumed in all departments this morning. Norcross Brothers, the contractors having ib charge the new county buildings, now in course of erection, notified their 300 employes, this morning, that, beginning with to-morrow, nine hours would constitute a day’s work, instead of t *n, as heretofore. The stone-cutters and masons of Allegheny City have joined tne movement for a reduction of hours. Meetings will be held to-night, and if the employers refuse to concede the workmen a reduction from ten to nine hours per day, a strike will be inaugurated to-morrow. At the O'Hara glass-works about 125 men and boys are out. The factory is still in operation, and the firm claim that they will not bo com pelled to shut down. The employes at Stern & Co.’s planing mill in Allegheny City made a demand to-day for eight hours' work with ten hours’ pay. If the demands are not granted the men will strike to-morrow. The movement of the labor unions in this city for a reduction in working hours is confined al most exclusively to building trades, the largest local industries, iron, coal and glass, not being disturbed by the demand. Those trades which have demanded a reduction in hours generally show a disposition to compromise on idno hours, and no extended or general strike to morrow is anticipated. The plumbers, bricklayers, hod carriers. plasterers and stone-masons have already settled with their employes on the nine hour basis, and will continue at work as usual. At a meeting of the stone-cutters, to-night, it was decided to strike to-morrow for eight hours and $3. GO per day. There are about four hundred stone-cutters in the two cities. Strikes w'ill be inaugurated to-morrow or on Monday by the carpenters and cabinet makers. The former want ten hours’ pay for nine hours’ work, and the latter demand an ad vance of 20 per cent, in wages and a reduction to eight hours. The employers have refused the demands. At a meeting of bakers, to be held to-morrow, a demand for a reduction in hours will be made, and if not granted the meu will refuse to go to work on Monday. AT NEW YORK. Indictments Against the Executive Board— The Gram! Jury and the Boycott. New Yoke, April 30.—The members of the executive board of the Empire Protective Asso ciation, Joseph R O’Donnell, chairman; An drew J. Best, secretary; James R Graham. James F. Downing and John Hughes, came to the district attorney’s office to-day to learn if they were wanted. They were told that indict ments were presented against them yesterday, for conspiracy in connection with the Third-ave nue railroad strike, and that they would be re quired to furnish SI,OOO bail,each, to answer. They were accompanied by a bondsman, who became surety for them. The accused men were ar raigned in court and pleaded not guilty. Then they withdrew the plea and moved to quash the indictment The trial of the prisoners was fixed for May 5. Among the new bands employed by the Third avenue Railway Company, yeatejday, were some from the South aud West, who had coma ou, hoping for a chance to use their revolvers.
