Associated Press Dispatches. 1
Chicago, April 30. —Tomorrow in
Chicago will witness a huge demonstra
tion of workingmen in the eight-hour
cause, under the joint auspices of the
Trades Assembly and Central Lalx>r
Union. Some of the organized leaders
predict that fifty thousand people will
march in the procession, but this is
probably an excessive estimate. Con
servative labor men say that at least
thirty thousand laboring men will be in
the line. About one hundred trade or
ganizations will take part, besides a
large number of miscellaneous working
men. The parade will form on the west
side and march through some of the
principal streets to the south side and
to the lake front, where it is proposed
to hold an enormous outdoor mass meet
ing with speakers' stands at three dif
ferent points. Mayor Cregier and four
of the county judges have been asked
to speak, but it is not yet known whether
they will do so,
The novel feature of the parade will
be three or four hundred women
and girl tailoresses, who recently organ

MB. POWDERLY'S VIEWS.
He Looks Forward to the Good Time
Scbanto*, Pa., April 30. — General
Master Workman Powderly, of the
Knights of Labor, was asked by the
Associated Press tonight for his view son
the labor demonstrations throughout
the country tomorrow. Mr. Powderly
said he had always favored an eight
hour law, although he was at times
opposed to methods advocated to bring
it about. The Knights of Labor had
also endorsed it officially. As he under
stood it,tomorrow's demonstrations were
to convince the public that the labor
element was greatly in favor of shorter
hours for toilers. It had been fre
quently alleged that the eight-hour
movement was simply for effect, and
that the workmen did not really favor it.
After the demonstration of tomorrow it
is to be hoped there will be no untrue
charges of the kind.
Continuing, Mr. Powderly said: " You
will see that the eight-hour law is a
most righteous one, when you remember
that a man can perform between the
hours of 8 and 12 in the morning more
labor with the implements of the pres
ent than two men could perform in two
days of ten houra each with the imple
ments used forty years ago. However,
the solution of the whole problem will
come when the laborer shares the profits
of his toil. As he will then be working
for himself, he can labor eight or ten
hours, as he may desire,"

Each Trade to Secure the Eight-Hour

"Our executive council has asked every

demand any concessions. When tho
carpenters' fight is over, the miners will
commence their fight for eight hours,
and so on until all the trades in the
American federation have gained one of
the essential rights of workingmen. The
eight-hour movement commences tomor

A NOTE OF WARNING.
TILLERS OF THE SOIL CALL THE G.
O. P. TO ACCOUNT.
They Are Desperate and Will No Longer
Be Deluded by the Ruinous Legislation
of the Party in Power.
Washington, April 30.—Ralph Beau
mont, chairman of the national legisla
tive committee of the Knights of Labor,
has written Major McKinley a letter
criticising the pending silver bill. Beau
mont says In part: "On w hat ground of
equity and justice does your party decide
to confer legal-tender powers to these
certificates for the purpose for which
national banks desire to use them, and
refuse the farmers and business men of
the country the same privilege?"
Beaumont then recalls the discrimina
tion between the trade dollar and stand
ard dollar, and asks: "What is to hin
der under this bill these same bankers
from discriminating against this note,
as it is only a legal tender for certain
purposes? This bill creates money for
the bankers and notes for the farmers.
It is not notes the farmers are in need
of: they are already burdened down
with notes. It is money they want
with which they may liquidate their in
debtedness to their bondsmen. I insist,
sir, that if you, as leader of the House,
let this measure pass creating these cer
tificates, without conferring upon them
full legal-tender power to enable these
overburdened fanners to meet their ob
ligations, you are guilty of committing a
wrong; and, mark it, it is one that both
you and your party will have to atone
for in the coining Congressional cam
paign. These overburdened tillers of
the soil are not to be trifled with. They
"You, as the leader of your party in
the House, are on the point of pressing
a measure through the House known as
the tariff bill, which you say is to pro
tect the tillers of the soil from ruinous
competition from abroad. Let me again,
1 beg,_ warn you that since the last
campaign, which was fought out upon
this issue, these same tillers of the soil
have come to the conclusion that during
that campaign they were laboring under
a delusion, and have come to the further
conclusion that it is not from competi
tion from abroad that they are suffer
ing, but on the contrary it is from legal
discrimination against them in the in
terest of corporate wealth, by just fcuch
unfair legislation as is contained in this
They Have Decided Not to Go oh a Strike
Chicago, April 30.—Much uneasiness
prevailed today over the prospects of a
big strike of the packing-house district
employees. All sorts of rumors were
rife, and it was stated in the evening
papers that the coopers, butchers and
laborers would surely strike. The heads
of the big packing houses held a meet
ing and resolved to pay no attention to
the laborers' demands. The coopers who
asked eight hours were informed that
the working hours could not be changed
now. Tonight fears of a strike are in
a large measure quieted. The executive
committee reported to a mass meeting
of the men, recommending the course
advised by the Federation of Labor, that
for the present the eight-hour struggle
be confined to the carpenters. There
was a long wrangle, but the president of
the union said he would not issue a strike
order. The indications are that there
may be a number of sporadic strikes in
the packing-houses tomorrow, but no
