Exhibits at the State Fair is that of the

main entrance, in Machinery hall. Their
space is neatly carpeted and contains a
tasteful display of stoves and ranges.
Among other attractions is a handsome solid
nickel-plaited Favorite coal stove. This
stove attracted much attention at the Cin
cinnati exposition, and is the only one of
the kind in the Northwest There are also
exhibited samples of the popular Earl can
non stove, which is used at all railway sta
tions on the Northern Pacific, Manitoba and
Omaha railroads with perfect satisfaction.
The Highland ranges, which are in so great
demand, are also exhibited. In short, the
exhibit of the Pruden Stove company is

The Indians made their appearance about
the middle of the afternoon yesterday,
dressed in calico shirts, paint and feathers.
They number about thirty, and it is said the
gang includes several men who were white
before they put on the paint. They came
in with a whoop and at the request of the
crowd that acted as a committee of recep
tion, at once gave a dance on the platform
of the railway station. It seems hard to
believe that any race of beings that looked
as greasy and had as much of Skinner &
Sly"s blue lead smeared on their faces ever
roamed over this fair land. They will be
in attendance during the whole week.

Mr. Griffith's Speech -- Numerous
Sports--How the Day was
Labor's Holiday.
The first observance in tho state of
Minnesota of the 7th of September as a
national labor holiday passed off success
fully. The celebration was intended not
only to secure a day of recreation and rest.
but as an assertion of the growing intention
of the producer to secure recognition.
Other days In the year are set apart to
memorialize certain historical events, and
when the call was issued on the part of the
Trades and Labor assemblies of the cities of
Minneapolis, St. Paul and Stillwater for
ttie workingmen to take this one day of the
year for themselves, as a dedication to the
cause of their advancement, very few were
found who did not acknowledge the justice
and right of the demand. The mayors of
both .St. Paul and Minneapolis issued proc
lamations approvlving the celebration, and
employers generally did not attempt any
opposition. About :;,000 people attended
t he
at White Beai lake. Of this number prob
ably 1,500 came from Minneapolis, 1,300
from St. Paul and 300 from Stillwater. An
address was made by Richard Griffith of
igo, general worthy foreman of the
Knights of Labor, supplemented by re
murks from Dr. Ames of Min
neapolis. A program of sports
was carried out. while dancing
and boating contributed to lill up a day of
pleasure. The trains arrived from the
three cities at the lake about 11 o'clock in
the morning and the excursionists first
gathered in the pavilion at Cottage Park,
■ the Metropolitan band of St. Paul
discoursed music very acceptably. After
calling the meeting to order J. P. Mc-
Gaughey of Minneapolis, the president
of the day, introduced Richard
Griffith of Chicago, who had
been secured to make the address.
As the applause which greeted him died
away. Mr. Griffith stepped forward, and
after returning thanks lor the cordial greet
ing took up his theme, which might be
characterized as the
lie reviewed the history of the Knights
of Labor, going back to the time when ii was
a secret order. It was then denounced by
both press and pulpit, which did not under
stand its true nature. Being oath bound,
its members were prevented from replying
and were forced quietly to submit to mis
representation and imposition. The Knights
struggled on until 1880, when the general
assembly met at Detroit, Mich., and made
public the name and objects of the organiza
tion. Since then the march has been on
mard and upward, and the last assembly
organized m Chicago two weeks ago was
No. 4109.
The speaker then went on to illustrate
the difference between Trades unions and
the Knights of Labor. The unions are ex
clusive and take care only of themselves.
When a strike occurs in one trade, the
others simply look on and render no assist
ance, showing that
'•Tho weil-fcdpig 1 in the sty doth lip.
Regarding not tho cry of the hungry one that
passetli by."
The Knights of Labor are broader in their
humanity and regard an injury to one as
the concern of all. It receives into its fold
all who work for an honest living, no mat
ter whether he may be a street scraper or a
skilled mechanic. All stand on an equal
basis and only the non-providers—the bank
ers, lawyers, saloonkeepers and gamblers
are refused admittance.
To illustrate the efficacy of standing by
one another, as advocated by the Knights of
Labor, the speaker cited the great strike at
Pittsburg. The Brotherhood of Locomotive
Engineers was an exclusive organization.
When they struck the railroad company
simply tilled their places with firemen,
those of the Bremen with brakemen, and the
brakemen with yardmen. If the Locomo
tive Engineers, instead of being an exclus
ive union, had been an assembly of the
Knights of Labor, the other trades would
have stood by them and the railroad com
pany could not have filled their places.
The Knights of Labor are, however,
and court the settlement of differences by
arbitration. It opposes convict labor and is
doing the utmost to accomplish its abolition.
The effect of convict labor throughout the
whole United States is not strongly felt.
perhaps, but it affects localities disastrously
to the workingmen. For instance, Chicago
is tiie market for the boots and shoes
manufactured in eight penitentiaries.
No wonder many of the shoemakers of that
city are idle!
The Knights of Labor are also opposed
to child labor. In this connection n picture
was drawn of how the "store" and other
large mercantile establishments of Chicago
employ hundreds of little boys and girls at
wages ranging from Si to $1.50 per week.
These children should be in school, fitting
themselves for usefulness in life.
The Knights of Labor are also opposed
to the robbery of the public lands by specu
lators and the titled aristocrats who have
for 700 years deprived the people of the old
country of their lands and who now are
striving to steal the lands from the people
of the United States. Through the efforts
of the Knidit* of Labor the foreign con
tract system has been abolished, and the
stealing of public lands will also be pre
vented by the same means.
The Knights of Labor are opposed to the
discriminations of the law in favor of
What this discrimination means? was
shown by the fact that in Chicago the fail
ure of savings brinks robbed So, 000 people
of their hard-earned savings, while the
bank presidents under the protection of the
law are allowed to retain and enjoy their
ill-gotten gams. The man who steals a loaf
of bread because Of starvation is also pro
tected (?) by law—but is sent to prison.
"The law condemns the man or woman
Who steals the goose from off the common,
Bui lets tho greater felon lose,
Who steals the eoramna from thciroosc."
Mr. Griffiths then went on to describe a
pic. urc he had seen which portrayed the
workingman aa struggling to support the
aristocracy nnd non-producers, saying it
was time that labor should find or.t "why it
receives only 40 per cent, of the wealth it
produces. Why it has to pay for all the
After picturing the misery and poverty
of the poor people, who live in the slums of
great cities. Mr. Grlfllihs closed by strongly
urging the advancement of harmony in the
ranks of labor, and expressed the hope that
Minnesota would be found tailing the lead
Ul every effort made to raise upon his feet
the down trodden son of toil. At the con
clusion of his remarks Mr. Griffiths was
heartily applauded. There were loud calls
for ex-Mayor Ames of Minneapolis, who
was present and that gentleman made a
brief address in response. He said he con

Me believed In the " organization of
labor and thought that only in this way
could recognition be secured. He advised
them to beware of the men who could be
hired to betray their cause, while the fullest
confidence should be \ laced in ffibse who
have given proof of their fidelity. He did
not care, he sr.id. to detain his hearers with
any extended remarks. They were all
there for fun and frolic and the shorter the
speeches the better.
The doctor's concluding hit was the signal
for a rush for dinner. Those who "had
brought lunch baskets gathered their friends j
about them, vhwo o:.iucs patronized the
very palatable lunch which had been j
furnished by the Ladies' Aid society of St. !
At 12:80 o'clock the train from St. Paul !
brought out about fire hundred more excur- ,
sionists, and shortly after their arrival
■were announced to take place In the base
ball park. After a majority of the picnic
en* had taken seats Jack McGaughey, as
master of ceremonies, called time from the
grand stand and stated that the first con
test would be a 100-yard race. The follow
ing were tho participants: John Davis, P.
LI. Ward, J. R. Wiltbank. P. Weiss and
M. McGonaglo of Minneapolis; Herberts.
Sporr, Ed Elliott and Bob Welsh of Still
water. A good start was made, and the
boys ran pretty evenly. Bob Welsh made
a spurt when Hearing the string and won j
by two yards, with Herbert Sporr a close
The next event was a boxing match. The
entries for the contest were Bob Welsh and
George Mealey, both of Still water. J. G.
Sterrett of Minneapolis was chosen referee
and the men went to work. The gloves
used were "pillows." and there was just
enough science displayed to make matters
interesting. Welsh forced the fighting (?),
and being heavier and stronger ran his an
tagonist around the ring. Mealey did
some good dodging and got in some clever
work, which elicited a shout of laughter
and applause. After four rounds, "Mar- !
guis of Gooseberry" rules, the referee
awarded the match to Mealey on account of j
the number of points.
games came next. It was decided that St.
Paul and Minneapolis should play first, the
winner to play Stillwater. The nines were
composed of the following players:
St. Paul—S. B. Hartranft, c; William

The game between Minneapolis and St.
Paul was decided in favor of St. Paul in
the fifth inning. For the St. Pauls, Rut
ledge, Kock. Long, Hartraft each soured
one and Hayes two. For the Minneapolis
nine, Fred McGouagal, Cummings and
Wahl one each. The score by innings
St. Paul 5 0 10 0—
Minneapolis 0 0 0 2 I—31 —3
The .second game, between St. Paul and
Stillwaier. was won by the latter in three
brief Innings, as follows:
St. Paul 5 0 o—s
Stillwatcr 2 1 3—6
The games were quite interesting, al
though necessarily of short duration. It
was announced that prizes, consisting of
medals properly inscribed, will be purchased
and presented to the winners. The dancing
in the pavilion, which had languished for
lack of attention, was resumed, and from 4
o'clock until the leaving of the trains the
dancing floor was crowded.
Taken altogether the day, although
somewhat cool, was very enjoyable. The
committee in charge deserves credit for the
arrangements, which were as nearly per
fect as such occasions will permit.
Chicago's Laboring- Men Parade.
Chicago, Sept. 7.—The labor demon
stration here to-day was an affair of consid
erable magnitude. The day was a perfect
one for the parade, and full 8.000 marchers
were in line, representing the various trades
assemblies and unions of the city. The pa
rade is the outgrowth of an effort to have
an annual holiday for the working classes
of the country, and was conducted here un
der the auspices of the Trade and Labor
assembly. in arranging for the demon
stration it was decided to not allow the red
flag of Socialists to be carried, and this pro
voked a counter-movement on the part of
the Anarchists, who paraded yes
terday. In the column to-day
the American colors were displayed,
together with the banners of the various
societies, and a few of the improvised ban
ners emblazoned with mottoes, demanding
that eight hours should constitute a work
ing day and denouncing convict labor. The
column was made up of representatives of
the stonecutters, plasterers, lathers, box
mskers, typographical, broom makers, cigar
makers, coopers, barrel makers, carpenters,
horse shoers, iron moulders, tanners, wool
pullers, harness makers, shoemakers,
watch-case makers, bricklayers and stone
masons' unions and street car employes. In
the column were a number of decorated
wagons, on which the processes of printing
a paper, making horse shoes and cutting
stone was illustrated. The column proceed
to Ogden's grove near the city, where the
day was devoted to hearing speeches and
other forms of diversion.
During the exercises of the afternoon the
following resolution was adopted:
'•The organized mechanics and working
men of Chicago, on this the first celebration
of Labor's National holiduy, deem it duo to
themselves and the public to announce that
while they know their riphts, and dare main
tain them at all hazards, they prefer tho bal
lot to the bull, reason to ruffianism, united,
intelligent action to meaningless violence,
as the agencies best calculated to remove the
evils of which they complain; that means
which may be justifiable in the despotism of
the old world are unwarranted and out of
place in a free republic, where the franchise
is the inalienable rJjjht of every American
citizen, irrespective of color and nationality
and that they are unwilling 1 to aid in tho de
struction of the institutions of a country, the
hope of oppressed of every clime, which their
valor and patriotism have secured."
New York's Labor Parade.
New Yokk. Sept. 7. —Theannuol parade
of the labor organizations of this city and
vicinity took place to-day. It is estimated
that fully 13,000 men were in the ranks.
These represented every trade that could be
named. In the ranks were brass bands and
drum corps and men bearing flags and ban
ners and transparencies, with mottoes of
different kinds. There were also wagons,
coaches and stages tilled with girls from the
silk factories. The procession attracted
a great deal of attention. The best appear
ing body of men were the bakers, but the
Typographical union turned out the largest
number of men. The procession marched
down Broadway to the battery and was re
viewed at Union square by prominent labor
reformers. After disbanding the paraders
went to a park, where the remainder of the
day was spent in games and festivites.

men said they believed they could make a
living if the works were started again, and
were given permission to start for them

pose to open the works themselves for some
time yet, believing the iron business to be

Transcontinental Affairs.
The representatives of the lines which
are members of the Transcontinental asso
ciation, which meets in St. Paul to-day,
commenced arriving yesterday, and a num
ber more will arrive to-day. Word has
been recurved from a few that it will be im
possible for them to arrive to-day and need
not be expected before Wednesday. The
first session will convene at 11 o'clock to
day. The 'first thing to be done will be to
appoint a chairman. At the last meetings,
one at Denver and the other at Chicago,
Vice President and General Manager (Jakes
of the Northern Pacific held that position,
but as the meeting this time occurs in St.
Paul it is not likely that Mr. Oakes will
care to act. L. G. Cameron,
the general agent of the asso
ciation, will be present and
appoint his own secretary. The meeting
will be of more than ordinary importance,
as the Sunset route is still the disturbing
element in freight matters. The Southern
Pacific controls that line, and the great
question to be discussecMs the percentages
it should be allowed. At the award made
last spring the Southern Pacific was dissat
isfied, claiming that it carried more freight
than the percentages gave it credit for, and
unless its share was increased it would
make things hot for the competing lines..
Its demand was that it be awarded its per
centage on a basis of the business it had
carried for the six months previous to the
allotment. As the Southern Pacilic, dur
ing these six months; had been cutting rates
to such an extent that the other transcon
tinental lines could not think of meeting
the competition, it necessarily got the bulk
of the business, or, as the records showed,
it carried about 72 per cent of the whole
This it now asks from the association as
its award, which, if conceded, would leave
the other lines 28 per cent, to be divided
among them. This concession, however.
Will not be made, and to fix things up sat
isfactorily for all parties will be the work
of -the freight representatives meeting in
St. Paul this week. The trouble in the
passenger business has been stated fully in
previous issues of the Globe.

Chicago, Sept. —Eastern rates to-day
were but little changed. j Grain was freely
taken—all that was offered, a: 10 cents per
100 pounds, while most of the roads wanted
12 cents for provisions. There was notable
exceptions to this latter rate, some eight:
barrels of pork having Ween taken by one of
the fast freight lines at 10 cents per'lOO. the i
lowest figures on that article for the season. I
It would seem as if the New York papers I
in announcing a meeting of the Central j
Traffic assciation for to-morrow, were mis
taken in their information. The
secretary, Mr. T. B. Moor . has
reeeivedQno notification from the chamber-
Mr. Ingalls and other members are equally
in the dark. The New Yorkers have
doubtless confounded a meeting of the
Trunk Line committee which was to have
been held yesterday for the purpose of ad
vancing west-bound rates, but which has
been postponed until Sept. 15 in order to se
cure the presence*of Commissioner Fink,
who will arrive from Europe this week.
Chauncey Depew, president of the New
York Central, states that the east-bound
traffic will be taken in hand by the presi
dents of the trunk lines as soon as they can
spare time from more important matters.
ITnion Pacific Troubles.
There were rumors in railroad circles yes
terday that the enormous floating debt of
the Union Pacific road would shortly have
to be readjusted. It is placed through New
England, and New York. Some of its !
holders are becoming restive for their
money, and it is reported that promp meas
ures are necessary to prevent- a peremptory
calling of the loans. There Is another
story that Charles Francis Adams, "presi
dent of the Union Pacific, is trying to wipe
out a lot of the floating debt by selling
some St. Joseph & Western securities that
have recently obtained a certain market
value through a change of policy in regard
to the treatment of the road by the Union
Pacific. The company is said to be all
right, having $1,500,000 in the bank. The
company is being troubled at its coal mines,
owing to the employment of Chinase labor
ers. The company mines over a million
tons of coal a year, and the Knights of
Labor are charged with driving out the
Chinamen in order to be in a position to
dictate terms for themselves.
The Trip Was One of Pleasure.
Special to the Globe."
Milwaukkk, Sept. 7.—The party of St.
Paul & Northwestern railroad officials,
whose trip over the latter road to the North
was the cause of so many rumors last week,
returned to-day. During their absence the
party went so-far as Ishplming, Mich.,
going to Menominee on the Northern, and
then over the Chicago & Northwestern to
Marquette. The officials of these
roads deny the report that the Mil
waukee & St. Paul was about
to purchase the Northern line.
President Spencer of the latter road said
such a thing had not been thought of. The
stockholders did not want to sell, as they
were very well satisfied with the present
status of the road. General Manager Mil
ler of. the Milwaukee & St. Paul said that
he had not heard the subject broached on
the trip, and, so far as he knew, it was not
thought of. Mr. Miller said he went to visit
Northern Michigan, which he had never
before seen, and was much under the im
pression that this was the case with all the
party. More attention was paid to the
Calumet and Heckla copper mines thau to
the Northern road. The only one of the
party who will admit that the trip was not
one of pleasure unalloyed is '"Gov." Wil
liam Young, who understood the trip to be
purely to show off the road and the country
through which it runs. Mr. Young is a
strong annexationist and said to the reporter
that if St. Paul did not secure possession of
the road it ought to, as it was a good in
Another New Line.

OsiiKosir, Wis., Sept. 7.—George W.
Pratt, Frank Woden, John W. Hume, C.
Leiber and 11. B. Ilarsaw have incorporated
a line of railroad from Florence to Abbotts
ford, in this state, and it is tc/be called the
Wolf & Wisconsin River Railroad company,
with a capital stock of $17,000,000. They are
negotiating with the Milwaukee, Lake
Shore & Western railroad, and if successful
will build a standard guage road. The in
corporators have secured the option on a
large amount of pine land and the object is
to bring the pine to this market.
Railroad Extensions.
There is a disposition in speculative and
investment circles to look with suspicion on
all enterprises dependent on the prosperity
of the northwestern sections of the country.
This is due in a large measure to the ten
dency to parallel existing lines of railways.
The Chicago, Burlington & Quincy has
made its contracts for the building of a line
to St. Paul. Although it is mildly denied,
the Chicago & Northwestern has about de
cided to extend to Kansas City so soon as it
can overcome some difficulties about the
right of way. The executive committee
has instructed the officials to raise money
to extend its Elkhorn branch, which paral
lels the Union Pacific 200 miles toward
Ogden. Now comes a report that the Rock
Island is about to purchase the St. Joseph
& Western road, and if the report is cor
rect it will place that company a long dis
tance west of the Missouri river toward
Coal at Superior.
Superior, Wis., Sept. 7.—The schooner
Hawk of Ashtabula arrived to-day
with 1,048 tons of coal; the schooner
Thomas P. Scheldon of Ashtabula with
1,200 tons; the steam barge Oscar Town
send of Toledo with 900 tons, and the
schooner Kelley of Toledo with 1,400 tons.
