Labor Day was a gala one in Havre when an army of five hundred work ing men formed, into line at Chest nut's corner with gaily bedecked floats, representative of the different unions and the business places of Havre. The day will be pleasantly remembered on account of the splendid parade of the forces and the ideal sunshiny weather. Headed by the Citizen's Band of Havre, the procession marched to Preston's Grove where Major Martin Maginnis of, Helena, State Superin tendent W. W. Welch of Helena, W. G. Conrad of Great Falls, Rev. W. B. Young and Rev. Francis W. Pool were introduced and welcomed by Mayor Newman and, Pres. John Pur cell of the Trades and Labor Assem bly, as speakers for the occasion. After invocation by Rev. Francis W. Pool, Maj. Maginnis started the ball rolling and held the closest atten of the large assemblage in an address replete with logic and from the stand point of one who takes an optimistic view of existing conditions. He de fined the laboring man as one who by the exertion of mind or body produc es wealth or adds to the sum of hu man knowledge, or who satisfies hu- t man desires. That the day will come when all men will come into possession of their birthright, 'the right and opportunity for a larger life and truer liberty, and all will join, not the-pursuit of selfish pleas ure, but of true happiness. Rev. W. B. Young made a masterly talk that more than met the expecta tions of his friends. l He told how the status of labor is rising before us like the sun in thegeast. We see the com ing of a new day in which every breath of Joy, in which no woman shall wear gorgeous raiment woven from the rags and with the tears of her sister's toil; no man shall be surfeited in wealth by the coinage of the crystalized sweat of his brother. All men and all women of all lands shall be free men and free women. Then shall we be brothers indeed; then shall the golden rule be the rule of all human ity. State Supt. W. W. Welch, the old time favorite among Havre unionists, did not dissappoint the boys and made everybody glad with an offhand address that held his hearers in rapt attention. His talk on Colorado's la bor history during the past few months was particularly appreciated. In part he said, "Capital has always claimed and still claims the right to combine. Manufacturers meet and determine on prices, even in spite of the great law of supply and demand. Have the laborers the same right to consult and combine? Manufactur ers meet and determine on prices, ev en in spite of the great law of supply and demand. Have the laborers the same right to consult and combine? The rich meet in the bank, the club house and the parlor. Workingmen, when they combine, gather in the street. All the organized forces of so ciety are against them. Capital has the army and navy. In Colorado mine owners have the legislature, the judiciary and executive departments. When the rich combine it is for the purpose of "exchanging ideas." When the poor combine it is "conspiracy." If they act in concert, if they really do something, it is the "mob." If they defend themselves it is "trea son." How is it the rich control the departments of government in Colo rado. In this country the political power is equally divided among men. There are certainly more poor than are rich. Why should the rich con trol? Why should not the laborers combine for the purpose of electing the executive, the legislative and ju dicial departments? When will they find how powerful we are?"" W. G. Conrad delivered a brief ad dress that made a decided hit with his listeners, especially the men who are joining hands all over the country in the fight against Orient labor. He stated that while the Chinese ques tion was comparatively settled, there is still a greater danger menacing the country by the increase of Japanese labor in the United States; that un less their emigration was restricted the competition would not be confin ed to laundry help and dishwashers, but with our clerks and more skilled labor, and should their combat with Russia be successful, the Japs might endeavor to depose the generals of the United States army.
