when President R C Sleater made a
brief address of welcome He spoke
i felicitously of the Importance of the
t occasion to workingmen and their
t pleasure at having such distinguished
guests among them
President Boyce was first introduced
Without any attempt at florid elo
quence he spoke plainly and with the
precision and force that is born of
conviction He was frequently inter
rupted with applause He said
Mr Chairman Ladies and Gentle
men and Workingmen of UtahThis
magnificent audience which has assem
bled upon the beach of the dead sea
of the American continent on one of
the nations holidays in the interest of

infant state of Utah
By your splendid attendance here on i
I the first labor day since Utah has been
admitted to take her place among the
sister states of the Union you demon
strate that you are imbued with r
spirit of fairness for the toiling masses
a spirit so unfortunately absent in
many sections of the nation
This audience will compare with any
A assemblage In the metropolitan cen
ters of the nation intelligently and pa
tTu > tically and bcih are the foundation
of all good government
My friends it is gratifying to know
that the labor question is becoming
more important every year Tan people
are awaking to its great importance It

demagogues a the monopolistic press

telling the factory employees of New
England who ore working for 50 cents I

with a high protective tariff on calico

Some will say it is not necessary for
workingmen to organize and make con I

in ignorance o prejudice for outside j i

the injustice of the past no one can
b held responsible for such terrible
conditions but the laboring masses who
cast 75 per cent of the total vote of
the United States
But politicians and corporation
agents implore us t keep out of politics
tics for it is KomeHiins we do not

J i 1
disrupt our organizations but we have
listened to their deceitful counsel too
long and stood idly by while these
modern Hessians of American liberty
robbed us of 7 per cent of alL our
wealth and 75 per cent of our homes
Here are some statistics from the
Boston Arend for July taken from
notes by the editor
I will b seen that the poor con
stituting 52 per cent of our families
own but 3 per cent of the wealth of
the nation while the middle class con
stituting 39 per cent of our families
own > 26 per cent of the wealth of the
nation and the rich who constitute but
9 per cent of our families own 7 per
cent of all our wealth Finally 4017
families possess about seventenths a
much a do 11593887 families
My friends it is time for the common
people to recover this wealth which
has been legislated to syndicates and
foreign bond holders by designing politicians
ticians in our state and national legis
latures those who implore workingmen
to keep out of politics
This is a representative government
and on these lines it must exist and
the party that tries to make i other
is an enemy to this republic and our
conditions are what we make them I
do not want to hear workingmen com
plain about losing their homes and
on election day return the party to
power that has legislated over half the
public domain to syndicates trusts and
railroad corporations and ruthlessly
struck down half the constitutional
money of the nation in the interest of
the money brokers of London and New
Neither dO I want to hear them ad
vocating a strike for one dollar a day
and g to the polls on election day
and vote for fifty cents a day and this
is what we have been doing for the
past fifty years voting the Democrat
and Republican tickets
I do not intend to condemn any
party if anyone deserves condemna
tion it is the working men But I want i
to cl your attention to a brief his
tory of our country and ask you to I
bear the question in mind Were we
ever a prosperous people Charles
Dickens writing from Boston to a
friend in London said every maT in
this country has a blazing fire and I
meat for every meal Nor would a
flaming sword in the air attract as i
much attention a a beggar in the
streets of Boston
And our illustrious writer Washing

such universal suffering among the I r
people our mines and factories are si
lent our land uncultivated all kinds of
property depreciating and four mil
lions of our people unemployed and
general stagnation in trade from ocean
Does our country possess the natural
resources to make our people prosper
ous Yet there is no nation under
the sun filled with such natural wealth

the world From to 1890 the an I
i nual wealth production was nineteen
billion Where has the wealth gone
Have the common people got i No
they belong to the Morgans and Roiths
I Her cotton nee and tobacco in the
south is unequalled her vast plains
and agricultural area in the middle
j states unknown to any other notion
The north and west with their endless
supplies of mineral and lumber yet in
spite of ail this the people are becoming

j i Let me illustrate it in the words of
the pot
The soil tells the same fruitful story
The seasons their bounty display
The flowers lift their faces in glory
To catch the warm kisses of day
While tIe our fellows are treated like cat
They are muzzled while trodding the
And millions sink down In lifes battle
With a sigh for the day they were
But we ore told we must have con
fidence We never lost confidence we
i always had confidence in a government
1 I by and fo the people and we have
the same confidence in the greenback
I and silver dollar that our forefathers
I had but we have no confidence in es
tablishing a foreign policy of govern
I ment on American soil a policy that
has in Ireland gone down t a dishonored grave
Let us ask ourselves what is the
cause of this general stagnation The
cause i due to unjust legislation by
te political parties in power Who
were the political parties in power
The first division in American politics
occurred in Washingtons cabinet
between Thomas Jefferson secretary of
state and Alexander Hamilton secre
tary of the treasury Hamilton was the
recognized leader of aristocracy and
wealth and Jefferson a leader of men
Hamilton was the recognized leader
of the federalist or monarchical paity
and Jefferson was the leader of the
great common people and founder of
the Democratic party Since that time
only two political parties have held
the reins of government the Democrats
and Republicans for the federalists
and whigs were not fommidaiblecoanpeti
torn o Democracy The Democrats
tell us that they are the party of Jef
ferson and the Republicans the party
of Lincoln When I hear those
Lincln hea those corporation
ration orators on the rostrum making
such comparisons between Senator Pal
mer and Thomas Jefferson and Major
McKinley and Abraham Lincoln I can I
imagine I hear the groans from Monti
ell and Oak Ridge cemeteries I
Thomas Jefferson said this must be
a government by the people and none
but the American people shall rule I I i
this nation And Lincoln in his
t nron Linoln mes
sage to congress in 1S61 warned his i
countrymen of the approach of danger I
a follows
Monarchy itself is sometimes hinted
at a a possible refuge from the power
of the people
Shades of our Immortal Jefferson and
Lincoln look down upon your suffering
people who have so foolishly ignored
your warnings till our country is on
the verge of a revolution labor has no
footing in the structure of this
te strcture gov
ernment i is entirely in the control I
of capital there is not
cpital a representa
tive of labor in any of the government
Take the executive neither Harrison I
or Cleveland ha any sympathy with
labor and the judicial with the ex
ception of Judge Caldwell there is not
a friend of labor on the bench neither
is there a representative of labor in
tfur national legislature then in
nQiona leslatur ten the
name of common sense how do we as
laboring men expect to better our con i
ditoin g on strike and get shot down
by the militia i
No my friends the day of strikes is
past We must lay aside our petty
quarrels and come together as inteili I I
gent men let education and organiza I
tion be our battle cry begin at the
primaries and nominate none but la
boring men for office from president to
constable and strike one decisive blow
at the ballot box that will make par
enemies tremble and raise our country
from the low moral plane to Which she

Premier Canovas has spoken again
Two or three days ago he said to a

I must have money for the Cuban

10000000 will be needed when we send i

When the new expedition arrives in
Cuba the insurgents in the west will
be forced to throw themselves against
the Artemest trocha the provinces of
Pinar del Rio and Havana will thus
be cleared of insurgents The same will
be done in Santa Clara

i El Din an independent paper has
published an article on the financial
situation which has caused a great
deal of comment I says
Spain needs 100000000 to pay the
floating debt 100000000 for ten
months expenses in Cuba and 50
000000 to meet other obligations which
cannot be postponed The govern

The negotiations of the Spanish gov
i ernment with a Glasgow house for new
1 warships have been suspended The
marine delegate at London has sent
I circulars inviting the leading ship
builders in Europe to present proposals
I for two cruisers
I Premier Canovas does not seem to
wish to have any more conflicts to
deal with The insults to the Span

to the Moor who fired at a national
transport boat on her way to Malaga
1 from the Spanish settlement in Africa
The newspapers report also that Brit
ish patrols on the Gibraltar line con
stantly make incursions within Spanish
territory but the authorities do noth

In the chamber of deputies on August
17 the Carlist leader Senor Vasquez
de Mella invited Premier Canovas to
imitate the duke of Valencia and be
ready to send his passport to a certain
foreign representative
1 Every day Mella added and now
more than ever filibustering expedi

States to Cuba despite President
Clevelands friendship The Americans
preach neutrality but they dont prac

waged by the American press which
represents uS a bloodthirsty and cruel
moves me to request the government
to rely more upon our own forces than
i upon American false friendship and
to be vigilantly watching the Cuban
coasts for the Yankee filibustering ves

of what our ship Tornado did with he
I American Virginius
Boldness like that led us to ask for
I pardon and to submit to other humili

later I advised Senor Gorizard to
be very cautious in dealing With the

Lieutenant Clarks Action Proper
and Justifiable
NEW YORK Sept 7A Tribune spec

to examine into the circumstances of I i
the killing of a private in company C j j
Twelfth infantry in pursuance of an or
der from a commissioned officer to a
soldier to shoot the pnvate The case
has attracted considerable attention
among the officers of the army owing to
the question involved of the right of an
officer to order a man under his com
mand to shoot a comrade iQ time of
peace In several cases in the west
civil courts have upheld the shooting of
soldiers under certain conditions but
the case here referred to differs from
those previously decided in many re
spects The officer who ordered the
shooting is First Lieutenant W O
Clark Twelfth infantry The circum
stances were these
A private of the Twelfth infantry by
the name of Weaver assaulted First
Sergeant Livingston of the same regi
ment In the course of the scrimmage
which took place Weaver broke loose
from the sergeant and running to

election held in this state today was
for all state judicial and county of

Senator James K Jones of the Demo
cratic national committee He has no
opposition within his party and his reelection
election is a assured fet
As far as heard from the election
throughout the state passed off quiet
ly and an unusually large vote was
polled The question of licensing sa
loons was the principal issue in the
majority of the counties Here in Lit
tle Rock it was the issue of the day
The prohibitionists or antilicense advocates
vocates were defeated by a large ma
jority Democrats and Republicans had
full tcet in the field while the Pop
ulists and Prohibitionists nominated
candidates for governor only Republican
can reports received in this city up to
p oclock Indicate that their vote will
exceed 160000 an increase of 24000 over

At Democratic headquarters the elec

Democratic candidate for governor is
claimed by 45000 plurality Chairman
Cooper of the Republican committee
disputes the claim basing his estimates
upon reports received late this evening
j Her says a large pe centage o the in
creased vote was poled by negroes
Of the 203000 poll tax receipts in this
j state 45000 are held by negroes 15000
i more than were paid by the negroes
two years ago

ernor a plurality of 18000 The Pop I
ulists scratched Files their candidate
for governor and voted almost solidly
for Jones as did many of the sound I
money Democrats who voted at all
The Prohibition vote throughout the I
I state shows a marked decrease The I
count up to 10 clock tonight gives i
the license people 650 majority and iit I
Is now believed that the total vote of
the county will increase this to 1800
Several clashes occurred in the doubtful I
counties between the Democrats and
Populists Notably was this the case
at Clinton Van Bureni county the
Clmton Bu counly te i
place where Congressman Dinsmore
was assailed last week Clinton is
twentyfive miles from the nearest tele

learn full particulars but it is thought
here that no serious results came of the

will reach 3500 The Republicans had
no ticket in th field the opposition be

LONDON Sept 7The single scull
race for the Worlds championship
and a stoke of 500 between Jacob
Gaudaur the Canadian oarsman and
James Stansbury of Victoria Austra
lia who won the championship by de
feating Charles R Was P Hard
lag of Putney on July 13 last was
rowed today and resulted in a victory
for the Canadian who won with the
greatest ease
The race was rowed over the old
championship course of four miles and
three hundred yards from Putney to
Mort lake and was witnessed by large
crowds of people who lined the river
The start was made at 145 p m
Gaudaur was first to catch the water
and soon had a good lead which he
gradually increased until passing
Hammersmith bridge he was nearly
ten lengths ahead and quite that dis
tance in the lead at the finish
Gaudaur was the first to get away
but 500 yards from the start Stansbury
who was pulling steadily crept up and
gradually passed Gaudaur leading the
Canadian by a quarter of a length at
Claspers boat yard When Stansbury
passsd Gaudaur the crowds along the
river bank became greatly excited and 1
cheered themselves hoarse Gaudaur
rowed desperately and clung to his I
opponent closely Both men at this
stage of the race were pulling gradually I
At Bevereley Brook Gaudaur had
pulled away from his opponent so that
he led by a quarter of a length and I
was the same distance in the lead at
the Crevan steps Both men had by I
this time dropped their stroke to thirty
to the minute but Gaudaur was row
ing with more power in his strokes
and was a clear length in advance at 1 i i
Crab Tree Continuing to row very i
fast the Canadian Increased his speed I I
and at the Harrods wharf he led by I
a length and a half
At this point Gaudaur took Stans I I
burys water whereupon the Australian
spurted vigorously obviously trying
for a foul This move caused Gaudaur i
to go back to his own side losing I
somewhat thereby for when he 1
reached his own water he was leading
by rather less than a length When
they shot through Hammersmith
bridge which they reached in S min
utes and 50 seconds Gaudaur again
went over toward Stansburys water
and the Australian repeated his at
tempt to foul his opponent this time i
with more success than before Stans
bury put on a furious spurt and man
aged to foul the Canadian just off the
lead mills but after this he was never
in the race Seeming to he satisfied
that he was beaten he held up from
the moment he fouled his opponent
and did not appear at any time there
after to exert himself much Gaudaur i
kept on with his powerful strokes go I
ing away from Stansbury easily and
increasing his lead every moment
