The Fourth of July commemorates the iM.-sui* by which we gained our independence an a nation, and l.abor commemorates the means by which we have made our nation the most powerful, the most progressive, the most prosperous of any In the world. In this country labor Is universal and Is universally honored anil appreciated. 1- this country there is no working class. hut every man worthy of the nam-: Is a workingman. In this country the ftiechanies w?rk. the farmers work, the clcrks work und even the millionaires work. We have no aristocmcy sive that of intellect and Industry, and the proudest title of our most successful millionaire Is "Captain of Industry." I l.avp no patience with the prejudices which exist between alleged classes when the classes themselves do not really exist. There Is no reason for hostility between rnployer and employe, between capitalist and wage earner, t'anltal Is but the accu iiulatlon of wealth which employer and | employe create together. Wages are but J the division c? protlls lioth employer and employe are entitled to their share ot the proilts, and as long as the division Is Just and i.juat.le there is no occasion for conflict. If the division li not Just, it can always be made so by arbitration, and there is still no occasion for conflict. A condition of class hatred as has develoDed in Colorado Is a curse to this country. There s'.iould be no prejudice entertained by the capitalist toward the laborer, and there should be no prejudice hy the laborer toward the capitalist. There should be an appreciation of the essential part which each plays in the creation of wealth. The man who digs the precious metal front the arth is worth his wage. The man who teus liitn where to Had the gold deserves is profit, too. Creation of Wealth. Ti < ::r?-at financial promoters, organizers. ?-*e<>'.itives of America are worthy of recognition ami reward.

Address by Gompers. Samuel Gompers made a strong protest against "the discrimination of the courts against the laboring men of our country uhich deprived them of their constitutional guarantee of equality before the law," as he termed it. "The injunctions as issued against workmen are never used or issued against any other citizens of our country." declared Mr. Gompers. Continuing he said: "It is an attempt to deprive citizens of our country, when these citizens are work men, of the right of trial by jury, it js an effort to fasten an offense against them when they are innocent of any wrongdoing. It is an indirect assertion of a property right in men when these men are workmen engaged in a lawful effort to protect or advance their lawful rights and interests. "The injunction as Issued In trade disputes Is to make outlaws of men when they nre not even charged with doing things in violation of law. state or national. The writ of injunction is in ttseii a beneficent vrrit for the protection of property lights, but it never was intended and never should be applied to deprive men of their personal rights or the rights of man's ownership of himself. Labor asks | no immunity for any man. workman or others, who may be guilty of unlawful or criminal conduct. But we do ins'.st that when a workman is charged with a crime he shall be tried by the same process of law as every other citizen. "So far as I am concerned, let me say that never have I nor ever will I violate a law I desire it to be clearly understood that when any court undertakes, without [ warrant Of law. by the injunction process to deprive me of my personal rights and my personal liberty guaranteed by the Constitution I shall have no hesitancy in asserting and exercising these rights. And it may not "be amiss to sound a word of warning and advice to such of the rampant, vindictive and greedy employers who seek to rob the working people of our country of their lawful and constitutional rights by the unwarranted injunction process. The full power of labor has never yet been ^xorcisod in defense of its rights; it Is not wise to compel its exercise." 0 Reception Held. The exposition grounds were Inspected, anu Messrs. Hearst and Gompers were given a public reception in the rotunda of the auditorium In the exposition grounds, an immense crowd attending. NEW YORK'S LABOB DAY.

STATEHOOD FOB ABIZONA. Suggestion to Join the Territory With Nevada State. The latest suggestion of statehood for A r*lTr?na is tn in<r? Ho* ** - " viim tullltui LUC state of Nevada and make one commonwealth, with a total area of 223,720 miles and a population of 165,266, according to the census of 1900. The proposition Is only of the most tentative nature thus far, and Is likely to arouse considerable discussion If put forward seriously. The talk comes up as a result of the announcement by authority of the President last week that the administration would < ease Its efforts to yoke Arizona to New Mexico. It remains to be seen whether the suggestion will be acceptable to Nevada. which, as a sovereign* state of the Union, would have to be consulted before the Jointure could be effected. For one thing, Nevada Is already in the Union, and, it Is pointed out, would have to be shown where the benefit would arise from tacking on Arlxona. Nevada Is a republican state at present, and Arliona, with three times the population, Is democratic. The politicians would probably have to take Into consideration the effect of the proposed assimilation. Some conflicting senatorial aspirations would have to be composed, too, and Col. Mark Smith and Mr. Francis G. Newlands might And their interests clashing, while the republicans would run the risk of living one seat In the Senate. It Is thought not at all nrobahln ?Vinf administration would lend Itself to an effort to force Arizona upon Nevada if Barkis wasn't wlllln', although there Is little doubt that Arizona would think the combine a line thing. The objections which the Arizona folk urged against their attempted forcible union with New Mexico would not apply to Nevada. In the former case the Arlzonians were to be mingled with a people of I^atln iiiocki. Moreover, tney were mostly republicans. and the new state would have been republicjuilzed. If combined with Nevada the population would be congenial and the Artconlane would be in the majority. Rain Postponed Charter Oak Races. HARTFORD.

CAUGHT ROBBING A STORE Turned Pistol on Self Bather Than Suffer Capture. COMPANION OF SUICIDE ESCAPED Botff Bobbers Italians ? Officer Was Murdered Without Having AnyChance to Defend His Life. Special Dispatch to The' Star. LTNDHl'RST, N. J., September 2.? Caught in the act of robbing a Btore, two men were arrested this morning about 5 o'clock by Policeman George Cassldy, and he started with them to the station house. On the way the two men protested their Innocence, but Cassldy refused to release them, whereupon one of them pulled a revolver^and before the policeman was able to check him or grab the weapon the prisoner pressed It against the officer's breast and fired. Cassldy dropped dead on the spot and the two men then ran away. The noise of the shooting aroused persons In the neighborhrwwl thpv tr flvfl rhflSfl flftor th? men. who are believed to have been Italian Junkmen. The two men separated, one of them making for the Passaic river, thinking he would be able to cross it somewhere and get away. When the pursuing crowd got too close to htm he would turn and fire a shot at It, but his aim -was poor and no nn? nrna hit hv tho hnllpfq The fugitive ran along the swamps near the river, trying to find a place to get across to Passaic county, and after about twenty minutes' running through the mud and slime he became exhausted, and, rather than submit to capture, he used the last cartridge In the revolver to kill himseir, and just as the foremost of the pursuers reached him he died. Victim a Popular Officer. Policeman Cassldy was about thirty years o'id, and was married nearly two yearB ago. His wife and child, about one year old, live here. He was one of the best-known and most popular officers on the force. He had been on duty all night and was returning to tne station nouse alter oeing relieved when he saw two men come out of the grocery store of Mrs. Mary Hoiden, on Valley Brook avenue. When the two men saw Cassidy they became confused, and one of them was about to run away when the other grabbed him and muttered something In Italian and waited <or Cassidy to come up to them. Cassidy walked up and asked them what business they had in the store, and they replied that It was none of his business, and when toid they were under arrest they submitted without much protest, and with the officer between them they started for the station house. Cassidy had each man by the shoulder as they walked along. The two Italians were talking and gesUculat I ; / ' I ? ! t i ing wildly. Afte* they had gone about a 0 block one of the Italians, the man on the * policeman's right, suddenly pulled a re- s volver, and without any warning Oassltfy ( was shot dead through the heart. His own . revolver was in his hip pocket, and the string of Ills club was about his wrist, c showing that he was murdered without s having any chance to defend his life. a Shooting Heard by Early Risers. As Policeman Cassldy fell to the sidewalk, the two Italians ran away down the street, keeping together. The shooting was heard by early risers in the neighborhood, arid soon three or four men were in the street. The sight of the policeman lying on the sidewalk with blood (lowing from his wound and the two strangers running down the street a little over a block away explained the shooting. The chase for the two men was begun. The fugitives g'anced back several ti'mes and when they saw tliey were being pursued they separated, one going in the direction of the Passaic r.ver, and the other taking an oppposlte direction toward some woods. As they separated ihe one running toward the river leveled his revolver at the foremost of his pursuers and tired at him. The bullet went wide of its mark and the Italian turned and lied. None of the pur- 1 suers paid any attention to the other Ital- r Ian, It being evident to them that the man \ with the revolver, and who seemed so < anxious to kill them, was the one that killed Cassldy. r Killed Himself in View of Pursuers. When the man reached the Passaic river he was unable to cross, as there was no bridge there. He then started in the direction of the Avondale bridge, some distance up the river. As the Italian came within fifty feet of the bridge he saw several men and boys waiting there. He could not turn back as the crowd behind him was greater, and he had to choose between plunging into the river and taking a chance of reaching the other side or spending the last bullet In his revolver on himself. He chose the latter, and In full view of those on the bridge and in his wake he placed the revolver against his own head ana nrt;u & biiui iuiu iujs main, uiuyj/mg m the marshy land. The man did not die In- 1 stantly, however, and vas carried onto the 1 bridge, but he expired as they laid him 1 there without gaining consciousness. Coroner Colling was notified and was soon on the scene. The dead Italian was evidently about forty years old, but there was nothing on him to Identify him, except a receipt from j a Arm in Elizabeth, N. J. The authorities ?,m *ru oatuhllsh his Identity bv means ol this receipt. A general alarm was sent out for the other Italian, and every avenue of escape J was watched in the hope tlmt he would be r captured. BOMB AROUSES SLEEPERS. * ????? e Midnight Incident at Chicago Starts Police to Guessing. r Special Dispatch to The Stir. s CHICAGO, 111., September ? ?A dynamite t bomb was exploded In the front yard of t Ex-Sheriff Pease, 3212 L'over street, last midnight. It broke many windows in the 0 house and tore a hole In the lawn. I The members of the Pease family were n at home In bed, and none was Injured. The police have a theory that the bomb was another series of the war of the gamblers, and It was exploded In front of Mr. Pease's resl- G dence by mistake.
