Thousands of Mourners
Parade New York Streets
In Great Demonstration

(By United Press Leased Wire.)
NEW YORK, April s.—Display
ing hundreds of banners with the
legend "We Mourn Our Dead,"
the labor unions of New York City
today made a great demonstration
against working conditions in the
city's factories as a result of ttie
recent Triangle Shirtwaist com
pany Are, which cost the lives of
143 toilers.
Throughout tho whole factory
district of the city activity was
suspended and the workers, clad
in Bombro garments, passed by
thousands through the streets ln
silent protest against the Ore
traps, y, ■•■-.:■
' Thousands on thousands were
in the parade and despite a steady
downpour, women and children
marched In almost equal numbers
with the men.
Two columns of the tollers, one
from uptown and one from the
lower east and west sides, met In
Washington Square, almost under
the ruins of the Asch .building,
where the fatal fire occurred.
Prominent in the procession were
the survivors of that holocaust,
and the crowds who lined the
streets by hundreds of thousands
uncovered as those who escaped

W. W. Seymour was nominated

does not put up a "tramp" but the

Women Deceived.
Thousands of women were de

at tho political game. But not
enough were fooled to win the
election for Seymour.
Of the 8,605 votes cast for Sey

were cast by men. At every poll

Women Wero Sold Out.
And now the figures of the elec
tion tell (lie story that the women
were sold out. They show that W.
W. Seymour, posing as the "moral
candidate," was backed by the sa
loons as had been repeatedly stat
ed in the Times.
He carried a majority or the
slum precincts. He won In all
the wards whero the slums and
the aristocrats rule, and in several
wards whero the great middle
class live enough women were de
ceived to give him a majority.
He carried the Seven slum pre
cincts in tho Third ward over
Fawcett by 432 to 875.
Sandberg Precinct.
In the second precinct, which is
' notorious because of saloon dom
i lnation, Seymour carried 61 to
•40. In the sixteenth precinct,
' which is now the tenderloin pre
■ cinct, and Includes the Kentucky
; hotel of Pete Sandberg, to which
1 his brothel women flew when tney
' were routed from tho Globe and
Standard hotel, Seymour carried it
against Fawcett 45 to 36. In the
' third precinct, taking in many of
' the saloons in the Third ward,
Seymour carried 88 to 66. In the
sixth precinct, which takes In the
line of doggeries down toward the
depot, Seymour had it over Faw
cett by 79 to 63.
Ho carried the slum precinct of
the Fourth ward, taking in the
notorious Garfield hotel. He was
the saloon candidate and It show
ed plainly not only In the work
in the saloons before the election
but it Is demonstrated in the elec
tion figures.
And the saloon never makes
mistakes in politics in a battlo of I
this kind.
Subsidized Press.
These facts are certain to turn
the tide against the special Inter
est candidate and the people will
now see why the tremendous cam
paign was made by the subsidized
press which scattered free papers
all over town for days before the
election full of misstatements and
deceptive arguments, to mislead
the new voters who never before
have been up against these Im
moral and self-seeking political
forces in Tacoma. '

voto in these three wards of tho
common people alone would have
added 2,186 to tho Fawcett vote
and would have given him a ma
jority over all and re-elected him.
Not For Seymour.
It Is conceded that this voto
cannot go to Seymour and It will
lie with Fawcett In the next elec
tion. Of the total vote of 3,303
for Barth it is safe to estimate
that not more than tho 300 will
ever go to Seymour. The rest
will go to Fawcett, who stands for
municipal ownership, which Is MM
