State's Attorney Senrle Speaks.
The address of State's Attorney C.
J. Scaric wus an able and well con
structed aud appropriate one, taking
Imost otic hour nud commanding the
closest attention of the large asem-
hlage.Tfuich he impressed with the
importance ami object of the day
recognized y the nation. lie never
appreciated more fully an invitation
than the one to address the laboring
people on this occasion. -()ii such
an occasion as this," continued Mr.
Scarlc, -wc not only cease from our
diily toil ior purpose of recreation
aud enjoyment, wliiuli are and should
bo proper and laudable features of
the day, but we also meet for tho
purpatc of furthering that cause,
labor, lo which this day is conse
crated, by observation and duty; by
an exchange of ideas and reiljciion."
le enumerated the more important
aud rigid ehanges ineeonom c, social
,-.nd financial conditions which have
taki.ii place rincc the country's foun
dation; ail ol which have a tendency
toward freedom and luuepentlcnce.
although all c'a-scs bad their troubles
to contend with, lie deprecated the
concentration ol wealth in the
hands ot the few and preferred
its distribution. The disastrous
railroad strike of last year
ago was touched upon and
the weak forces of the laboring peo
ple, although apparently powerful.
when brought face to face with the
few individuals representing im
mensity of wealth. While not ap
proving of it, his observations
advanced the opinion that all acts of
the people were townrd a socialistic
tendencv. ! lind that a great many
people confuse socialism with anar
chy," further continued the speaker,
"No two doctrines were more antag
onistic. Anarehr spurns all law

who are blessed by having a govern
ment and Jaws tff their own making.
The tendency of the times is toward
plutocracy, Hhica I regard as
thousand times more likely to

and the oneraiion of all industries,
It linds its logical conclusions in the

Moore in his -Utopia' and in I3el-

conclusion JJr. dearie offered some
wholesome advice toward the perpe
tuity ci prosperity and indepond
enec: "Let us be for law and order
for all time.1 It took thousands of
years to establish tho doctrine that
all men, high and low, rich and poor.
are equal before the law. Treasure
that blessed privileg-j a the pa'.ladi

Teach and train your children that

countenance tnrbulance. law-breaking
and mob rule. Nobody suffers
from these like the producing
classes. The law should be made,
ami can be, for the benefit of ns all.
With a pure ballot in the hands of
the people they always have it in
their power to correct any abase.
If constitutions get in the road, as is
sometimes the case, it lies with us
to brush them aside, but always
legally. We can't do anything by
force or violence that we cannot do
with the ballot. Some means must
be discovered io prevent the founda
tion of trusts and combines, for if it
can't be done tho only measure of
protection the people will have
against their exactions will be for the
government to enter the field of in
dustry and ran the business itself.
But it ought not come to that; we
ought to be able to tiud some method

narrowing the field of operations of
corporations so that competition, cur

Perfect your labor organizations,

Within the past few years you have
accomplished much by organi.at'on
and co-operation, and vou can ac
complish still more. It
out saving that many false steps
have been taken, many mistakes
made, but you have been going ia
tbu rijrht direction. Be careful about
the choice of your leaders. It is
seldom that men that talk tho most
know the most. It is not always the
man that most loudly professes his
friendship for labor, that is labor's
greatest and truest friend. Beware
of demagogues and dishonest men."

was a Master Mason and Knight o'

ances of the deceased. Owing to
the early hour and absence from the
city of a large number of Masons on
the Knights Templar itinerary to
Boston the escort was not ns large as
it would otherwise have been. None
