THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNJSI
PRICE TWO CENTS.
THE WELKIN RINGS WITH SHOtJT* FOR TEDDY. THE STRENUOUS
LABOR TRIUMPHANT
IN MINNEAPOLIS
To-day's Parade an Inspiration to 'Men and
Women in AH Departments of Human
Endeavor,
Fifteen Thousand Toilers in Line, Upholding the
Banner of Organized Labor, Made a
Great Spectacle.
Vice President Roosevelt should have
seen the whole Labor Day parade as it
inarched down Nicollet avenue with colors
aud banners waving to the lively melodies
of numerous bauds.
Admiring as he does the man of action,
the man of red blood and brawny
strength, manly bearing and independent
spirit. Colonel Roosevelt would have beeu
stirred by the bight of the labor forces
of the western metropolis, swinging along
with the free and easy western stride.
His heurt would have gone out to that
long line of workers, who by their
strength and toil and by their cunning
and skill are transforming the raw prod
ucts of the earth into articles of utility
and beauty, who are creating wealth for
tht whole community, good living and
health for themselves, prosperity for all.
There were thousands out to see the
paraders io-dtiy." It would be folly to at
tempt au estimate of the numbers in the
crowds. Nicollet avenue was packed front
Tenth street to Bridge, Square as tightly
as straws in a broom. More people might
have been crowded in, but where it -would
not be easjr to see. Hennepin avenue had
Us thousands, and the bide streets upon
which the parade formed were thronged
with great crowds of those unable to get
a position along the line of march, but
determined not to return home without
seeing what they could.
Some people will have the temerity to
t-ay which was the beut appearing body in
liui- tills morning. There is even a com
mittee of three men willing to place
.themselves on record as deciding which
unioa ina')e the beet appearance. Some
men have a superabundance of confidence
in their own Judgment. Others are not
so constituted and will no; commit them
selves further than to say that every un
ion made a creditable appearance —even
the policemen's union, the horse owners'
branch and the sidewalk squad.
The police detail was large, but none
too large to make a way for such a t>ig
parade. It was difficult at times to keep
the platoon front on the mounted con
tingent, but by pushing back until dents
in |he brick and stone buildings were
made by the crowd, the police were able
to make clear a space so Grand Marshal
Phil Carliu, mounted on a prancing steed,
could be seen to advantage. Mayor Ames
and Labor Commissioner O'Donnell fol
lowed in a carriage. Officers and mem
bers of the State Federation of Labor and
the trades and labor council followed.
How They Looked.
District Chiefs Hernlund and Hanley
led a cloud of dark down the street and
then came a big patch of shimmering
white. It was the bakers and they shone
with cleanliness from the tops of their
white baker caps to the bottoms of their
white trousers.
Two carriages for ladies led off the boot
and shoe workers, whose distinguishing
sign was a big red boot on the left breast
of each marcher.
Marching in two columns of twos the
iron molders in black costumes with white
caps marched sturdily over the asphalt.
They were followed by six carriages
brightly decorated with pampas, grass
plnmes and twined with colored paper
rope. The occupants were ladies bearing
red, white or blue parasols. The official
program made the stationary engineers
follow the iron molders, but the pretty
occupants of the carriages were much too
dainty and pretty to be engineers.
The latter needed no substitutes, how
ever, and appeared in line behind the
Morgan post drum corps looking not as
if they had come from the shop, but as if
they were going there. The style of blue
overalls and black cap affected by engi
neers was worn by each member of the
union.
Next came a shirt waist party, white
shirt waists and white duck pants. It
was the carriage painters and they were
just as proud as any union that was out.
A dash of bright color turned into Nic
ollet avenue when the cigarmakers in
purple shirt waists reached the main
thoroughfare. Another group had white
T. D. I. U., and the Federal Labor union
label as conspicuous as they could.
The Coopers' Machine Operators, the
T. D. I. U., and the eFderal Labor union
attracted attention by wearing no other
uniforms than their Sunday-go-to-meet
ing clothes, and just as many people saw
them as the more striking uniforms.
A band with a real drum major, wear
ing a top-heavy shako, introduced the
blacksmiths in blue waists and white
pants. No one ever saw a smith togged
out in such a willie boy attire, but the
smiths looked well, nevertheless.
The plumbers' helpers had a workman
like costume, and every one was about
ready to 'go to work as he ever is. They
had gray, hats, striped cotton shirts and
white suspenders.
• Some .Wore Umbrellas.
Big umbrellas, red, white aaJ blue
triangles, were carried by the members of
the Woodworkers' union and the little fel
lows standing -in the rear of the big
crowds could at least see those giddy
umbrellas. j
The . bro>ommakers, stage employes,
teamsters,"-mattress makers, elevator em
ployes, meat cutters, leather workers, ma
chinists and some smaller unions did not
appear in uniform, but did their share to
swell the parade into the biggest in the*
•history, of the stale. They had at least
banners end the banners added much color
and animation to the procession. ':'.' ." ;,
Jauntiness was a characteristic feature
of the brewers, coopers and beer bottlers.
Black was the prevailing color, and except
for a spot of blue, furnished by the ties,
they were sombre enough for a funeral.
The coopers had one of the few floats in
the parade and made barrels on the street
—or pretended to. There were several
unions of coopers. One. was headed by
four men carrying a suspended barrel be
tween them, another was headed by a big
barrel wagon.
Boiler makers were out in force and
were appropriately attired in black with
white caps and blue "galluses" to re
lieve the sombre darkness of their cos
tumes.
They were followed by the workers in
the flour mills of whom there were about
1/jOO in line, nearly equally divided
among the general flour mill employes,
the packers' and nailers' union, and the
flour loaders. The first named were all
in white, while the packers and nailers
wore big white aprons used in the mills,
only those to-day were new, with the
brand on.
P. N. Wingren looked like a field mar
shal leading the tailors, and he had a
stylish lot with him, including the tall
man with the silk hat.
Scarlet shirts of vivid hue made the
metal polishers visible ten miles away.
They were stunning.
All the building crafts were assembled
in a division by themselves, with the
Building Trades Council and the Wood
men's band at the head. Following came
the steam and hot water fitters, attired
in a costume consisting of black shirts,
white pants, black crush hats and sun
flowers on the brepst.
The thrifty stone masons were content
with white hats and canes the rest of the
uniform being simply clothes.
Plumber '•Pluto«ra*B t* Werp There.
Much attention was paid by the plumb
ers to inarching and they made an excel
lent appearance from a military stand
point. The same may be said of the sheet
metal workers, whose alignment was ex
cellent and whose general appearance was
very trim. The plumbers had bright red
jackets, and white trousers. Mason lea
ders all in white, almost like bakers., fol
lowed the gay plumber boys and, from
force of habit, listened for the cry of
"mort."
Gray shirts, gray fedora hats and white
pants covered the manly bodies of the
lathers. The costume was more business
like than startling, but was neat. The
electrical workers had the honor of
marching ahead of The Journal band,
which as usual atracted more attention
than any other band in the. street. The
newsboy musicians escorted about 250
bricklayers in white shirts, gray felt hats
and black belts. The union was com
pletely uniformed, every man in line
wearing suspenders, ties and even col
lars just exactly alike.
Big s«arlet ties marked the iron work
erg and as they came nearer it was seen
that they had gray hats, and white shirts
with black strides.
Nearly every one applauded the sheet
metal workers, who appeared in trim suits
consisting of white sack coats, white cap?,
white trousers and carried canes of tin
or brass, marching with much precision.
Caps, shirts, suspenders and pants of
the whitest white —that was the uniform
of the plasterers, who appeared in great
numbers although they were not nearly so
numerous as the carpenters. These had
the biggest union in the line. They wore
their Sunday trousers, but were alike as
to shirts, which were white and suspenders
and caps, which were black. The tail of
the building trades consisted of the paint
ere and it was a flaming one. Leaving out
the head piece, there was not a great deal
to the uniform but those "lids" would
scare a hearse horse into "blind staggers".
They were called "untrimmed Porto Rico"
straw hats, but when a party of civilized
j men get them on, they are quickly con
verted into a party of Fiji cannibals forag
ing for lunch. They were by far the fierc
est things in the parade—those gay
baskets called hats. The most variegated
flower garden could never look at those
hats and call itself a blaze of color again.
"Prints" Were Gorgeous.
A separate division with a couple of
bands was allotted to the allied printing
trades and they needed it. The bookbind
ers started off with an immense bock, too
big to be real, while the binders trailed
behind in white shirts, black caps and sus
penders and their best trousers.
No attempt will be made to describe the
"prints." If they calculated on making a
hit with their "Gutenberg coats," they
did not fail. It was a long, loose robe,
with a monk's cowl, and was very unique.
If any colors were left out in that motley
crowd It was doubtless an unintentional
oversight. The committee did the best it
could. The "devil" and his imps kept up
the traditions of the craft in a wholly sat
isfactory manner.
Last in the parade came the team own
ers including the sprinkling cart drivers
and the drivers of every sort of vehicle
used in the transportation of goods and
in work.
It was a noble sight from beginning to
end, not particularly from the bright cos
tumes and the gay music, but from the
cause that those fifteen thousand men
represent. They made a creditable show
ing and Minneapolis honored labor and
exalted its dignity by turning out en
masse to see the demonstration.
THE PALACE CUP
It Is Awartleil to the Sheet Metal
"Workers.
The Palace Clothing company's cup fo.r
the union in the Labor Day parade mak
ing the best showing as to dress and
marching goes to the sheet metal workers.
The judges, James Gray, Fred M. Powers
and Lars M. Rand, announced the award
at the close of the parade this morning.
The presentation of the cup will take place
Wednesday evening at the rooms of the
Trades and Labor council. The sheet
metal workers wore white caps trimmed
with blue, blue jackets and white tryueexa,
trimmed with blue.

PUNISHMENT
OF M CCALLA
Hitherto Unwritten Chapter
of Schley Feud.
IMPORTANT TESTIMONY
Schley's Determination to Destroy
Cervera's Fleet Proved.
ENTRY FROM McCALLA'S LOG BOOK
The Commander of the Marblehead
a Victim of the Spite of
('rovt'iitiiNhieltl.
Mow York Sun Spmolml Servloa
Washington, Sept. 2. —Two features of
the Sampson-Schley controversy, which is
shortly to be investigated by a naval court
of inquiry stand out so clearly and dis
tinctly that they will doubtless command
I much of the court's attention.
The first is Admiral Sampson' inex
plicable conduct during the period be
tween May 19 and May 30, IS9S, when,
though in possession of accurate and reli
able information that Cervera's squadron
was at Santiago, he loitered at Key West
and confined his activities' to issuing bom
bastic commands to the naval captains
and contradictory dispatches to the navy
department.
The second is Admiral Schley's deter- j
mination, expressed from the moment he
was put on the trail of the Spanish fleet,
to engage and destroy the vessels of that j
fleet. Schley never wavered or faltered in
the pursuit of the great task which had
been assigned to him until he drove the
Colon on the beach, a shattered and help
less wreck. The admiral's gallantry,
dogged persistence and unshakable deter
mination stand out in brilliant and pleas
ing contrast to the extraordinary conduct
of the man who is chief among his accu
sers and who unblushingly confesses that
he approved of "Historian" Maclay's use'
of the words "caitiff," "coward" and i
"traitor," as applied to Admiral Schley's!
behavior during the war.
By one of those curious oversights that
disturbs the calculations of tne most ac
complished censor, an apparently insignifi
cant paragraph was permitted to creep
into the published records of the conflict
with Spain. It was a part of the log of
Captain McCalla of the Marblehead and it
illuminates the whole question of Schley's
purpose. Captain McCalla's entry in the
log of Ihe Marblehead is as follows:
During the time the command- :
: ing officer was on board the :
: flagship Captain Evans asked :
: Commodore Schley if it was his :
: intention to steam at the :
: enemy's ships in case they :
: should start to come cut. Com- :
: modore Schley answered, "Cer- :
: taiuly," and added words mdi- :
: cative of his intention to attack :
: them as they came out of the :
: narrow defile. :
If any other captain who was present
when Schley made this gallant response to
Captain Evans' query noted it in his
ship's log the entry has been successfully
suppressed. McCalla paid dearly for his
thoughtlessness. In spite of his splendid
record during the war, of the hardships
he endured and the dangers he ran in the
performance of his duties, that were prac
tically continuous, he found himself at
the close of the conflict in bad odor with
the powers that rule at the department.
He was railroaded to the Philippines and
there assigned to the most distasteful sta
tion. When the Chinese Boxer troubles
began McCalla was the first of the Amerl-
I can naval captains to be ordered to Taku.

Like the gallant, patriotic old sailor he
is, he accepted his orders as an oppor
tunity to win distinction, which is so
dear to the men qt the navy and army. But
his friends at home could not overlook
the fact that he was a victim of the
wrath of Crowninshield and perhaps Sec
retary Long.
Rear Admiral Evans, who until quite
recently was tbe severest of Schley's
critics and detractors, but who for rea
sons which he alone can. explain appears
to have radically altered his views of
Admiral Schley, never mentioned the con
versation on board the Brooklyn which
Captain McCalla describes so laconically.
If there is any mention of it In his log
the fact has never been made public. The
same can be said of the other captains
who were present, but the explanation of
this is to be found in the experiences of
McCalla since the close of naval operations
in the waters of the West Indies.

GOOD THINGS TO AVOID
Montana Bank Hill* Taken in the
I.ate Train Robbery.
Fort Worth, Texas, Sept. 2.—Banks in
Texas are in receipt of $ communication
from the treasury department, notifying
them that bills of two Montana banks to
the amount of $300,000 are in circulation,
lacking the signatures of presidents and
cashiers. The bills were stolen in the
recent train robbery on the Great North
ern while in transit from Washington
to the banks. The bills are in denomina
tions of tens and twenties, $200,000 of the
former and $100,000 of the latter. The
public is warned not to accept the bills
of those denominations of the Montana
banks lacking the signatures of the presi
dent and cashier.
SEVERE ON SICKLES
"Secesh" Speech Made in
Congress Resurrected, to
His Discomfiture.
From. The Journal' Bureau. Roam 45, Pott
Building, Washington. , - •''.- .; "i »
Washington, Sept. 2.—Those participants
in the pension office controversy who do
not sympathize with General Sickles' at
tack upon Mr. Evans have resurrected a
speech by the valiant New Yorker, deliv
ered at the beginning of the civil war, in
which he appeared as an eloquent cham-.
pion of secession. Strange as such utter
ances may aeem in the light of General
Sickles' subsequent military servioes, Ifce
speech now will undoubtedly be a factor
against his election as commander-in
chief of the Grand Army of the Republic*
It is hardly necessary to say that Pension
Commissioner Evans' partizans are mak
ing the moet of the speech and that copies
of it will be widely distributed at the en
cumpment.
, The speech which he delivered in the
national house in -December, 1860, ~ -was
precipitated by discussion brought out in
the refusal of. Representative Hawkins of
Florida to serve on a special committee, of

COL ROOSEVELT
SEES THE PEOPLE
Minneapolis Doffs Her Hat and Gives
the Vice President a Right
Royal Welcome.
He Formally Opens the State Fair
With an Earnest Address on the
Duties of the Nation.
Theodore Roosevelt, vice president of
the United States, is the guest of the state
of Minnesota.
The people of the north star state
opened their hearts to him to-day, and
met him with a western welcome, breezy
as the nrairies. It was "Hello, Teddy,"
on every hand.
"Hurrah for Teddy," shouted the news
boy from the pavement, and from the curb
the enthusiastic citizen called "Hurrah
for the* next president of the United
States."
From the rear platform of his special
'troley car the vice president waved his
thanks and smiled in appreciation. He.
was immensely pleased with the informal
ity and enthusiasm of the greeting. It
was the sort of spirit that Roosevelt
stands for.
Many who gazed at the fast-receding
figure on the car platform this morning
did not realize that they were looking at
Roosevelt., In frock coat and silk hat he
was almost . incognito. It was a state
occasion, and he could not help it. He
would if he could. "I never can. get used
to the top hat," he said this morning,
"but to-day I suppose I must wear it." ;

The Life Strenuous.
"Isn't tbie a pretty good example of

Break it gently. Colonel Roosevelt it
traveling alone. No secretary, no valet,
accompany him on his western tour. He
doesn't need any help, and doesn't want
a servant to worry about. "It was dif

he explained this morning. "Then I warn
