threatened labor leaders do not hesitate to predict a condition of affairs evon more formidable than the stirring times of There is no telling yet how many trades will be drawn into the new oighbhour movepment There is so much disorganization and so little leader ship that everything will depend on the out come of the big labor parade that will take place on May L 1 he action of the American Federation of ijuljor in designating1 Chicago as the theater1 of the struggle for eight hours has had the effect of arousing a spirit of discontent among vrtain trades that were believed to bo entirely neutral Will lnvclv tOOOOO Men The ultimate effect can hardly be anything olse than u strike of extraordinary propor tions which may includo orer 100000 men According to wellknown labor leaders who iro receiving returns or rathor bulletins from restive organisations the movement will bo t3VOi moru sweeping than it was in Thd strike fever is spreading with marvelous Organizations tliat four years ago made au utter failure of their efforts to secure u redutiou of working hours are in the field again ruoro determined than ever Tha men who arc contemplating strik ing believo thny will have material and moral support without stint Down at tho stockyards for example upwards ot 10000 man are ready to uesert their benches and stalls at a moments notice They complain that work is so uncertain that they can hardly icuko u living so that their strike will not be simply for eight hours Tim Turbulent Element utid Otliur Another organisation that is likely to jump into tho tight is the union of lumber yard laborers which was largely responsi ble for thu bloody riots on the Black Road four years ago The freight handlers are also growing restive so are the shop tailors tho machine woodworkers and many others The bricklayers are practically as idle as if they wero on a strike as are tho plasterers hodcarriers and stonemasons owing to the row of the carpenters The bricklayers who ara at work are getting restive They are beginning to demand that the carpen ters troubles be adjusted at once and they are dropping liiuts every day that unless something is done they will decliue to do any more work Then the employes of the United States express company are very restive under the proposed cut in their wages May 1 though there is only a remote possi bility of a strike A Mighty Serious Outlook Very few people if any thoroughly ap preciate tho iru portrttic3 of the situation or the nmgniudj of tho move Its effect for good or bad will bu stupendous in that it will probably

pearances prepared to make it a test case A general strike of 100000 workmen in the city would paralyzp everything The other 205000 men might as well joiu because they will be able tc do nothing Then is the grim spectre of riot with its attendant horrors Meantime the only thing that has been clone is a call for a meeting of all who will join the new boss carpenters associa tion for an attempt at settlement of a Settlement latest from the carpenters is that the new bosses association has shown thafe it can employ 4000 men and negotia tions nro prbnpelitig for n resumption of work They ore not

evening in sup port of Parnells motion to reject the gov ernments Irish land purchase bill was dis appointing alike to his friends and his polit ical opponents The announcement having been mada several days ago that the ei preniier would speak there was a large at tendance of members and visitors and a grand oratorical effort on the part of the Liberal leader which should clearly define his position was expected It was observed however at a very early stage of his re marks that he was treating his subject in a halfhearted way and the enthusiasm of his followers and admirers waned as the spirits of his opponents rose Gladstones reference to the scheme outlined by Parnell as a sub stitute for the governments bill were very gingerly made and provoked derisive laugh ter from tho Conservative benches SynOjpiiiH of IVhat He Said The grand o d man began by complaining of the complications of the measure and claimed that it did not undertake to solve the problem His principal objection how aver sesmel to be to the imperial guaran ee which he said oleJge 1 the country to the extent of without mentioning tho possibility of further amounts being added Than he held up the chaiico of repudiation As the government was going to make Ii eland a debtor it was important that they should consider what was tbo attitude of tho persons they were about to subject to debt If they declined to recognize the obligation it was a new wrong inflicted An View Gioschen followed Gladstone la along ar gument He appealed to the house not to allow political opinion to warp the judg ment of members on the bill T O Kussall IrishUnionist approved tha bill in all respects The idea of repudia tion ho said was a mere bogy The Unionists had only objected to land pur chase as being part of

all respects ap prove of Parnells alternative but it was the schema OL the only man possessing the power of settling the question He did favor the settlement of the question of land purchase under

words and cr other purposes Cuimuings that the commission was for no purposa tt all It should be namud the great supjrvisory commission of the government and turned loose upon the land Its usurpations were getting mon strous As conducted it had ben a scandal to tho government Instead of confining itself to the simple duties as indicated by law it came before congress in tho bill as a legislative executive or judicial institution The apparent ignorance of some of these commissioners had been larg ly displayed What they lacked in intelligence and expe rience they made up in arrogance and super ciliousness Tho insolence of office was never better 1 Tho first com missioner gava more ungrammatical sen tences in his tatters than wero to be found in English as she is spoke None of tho commissioners know anything about the law except Mr Roosevelt the brilliant and accomplished cowboy and he did nothing Cuminings point was overruled Perkins Opens His ISattery Perkius of Kansas offered pn amendment exempting exsoldiers from tho provisions of the civil servica law and said ho knew tho people were not in sympathy with it More than this ha believed the weakness of the present administration was in standing by that 1 and if Democratic success should como in the next ulection it would ba bo cause the administration in power did not stand by the working Republicans rather than by its professions of civil service re form The amendment was rnJeu out Biggs of California denounced the civil service law contending that an administra tion should have ils friends in ofhre A Chuiiru to Show Their Colors Hotik of Tennessee moved to strike out tho entire civil service ciause and this brought McComns of Maryland to his feet He said that tlrii was if not a humiliating a protly si rious business and especially for the Republic in party which a pablkavi president on a Rpuljlietm plat form Dmjcrats belonged to a party tuat could take both sides of a question amigive a pledge and absolutely break it The Re publican party had never been able to break its pledges without paying tho penalty This was a cowardly attempt to nullify existing law and the party had never been a party of nullification This backdoor way of attacking1 the civil service commis sion by attempting to starve it out was mean and cowardly dishonorable and un worthy a great party which had won a victory on the promise to fulfill its pledges after the Democratic party had failed to keep theirs Nothing XonConimlttnl About Hoiilc Honk denied that it was cowardly to strike out the appropriation If there was nything cowardly about the whole matter it was this attempt to smuggle through an increased appropriation when tho system stood under indictment If a man was go ing to be read out of the Republican party for attacking a siystem which had proved self ineffectual there would not bo a cor porals guard left He denied that the Re publican party had ever conceived the idea of indorsing this fifth wheel of a wagon It bad declared for good civil service reform but it did not want this nonsensical sys tem A Plea for Party Fledges HcKinley of Otdo earnestly opposed the motion to strike out the appropriation His only regret was that the appropriation com mittee did not give to the civil service com mission all the appropriation it asked for the enlargement of the civil service If the Republican party of this country was pledged to one single thing more than an other it was the maintenance of the civil service law It was not only according to the tenets of the Republican party but ac ording to the best sentiments of the Repub lican party throughoutthe United States Now when the Republican party was in control of all the branches of the govern ment it was proposed to virtually repeal this law when for four years during a Democratic administration nobody on the Republican had tbe temarity to rise in ais place and ask for tho nullification of the iaw They thought it good enough for a Democratic administration and he said to ais Republican friends that it was good enough for a Republican administration The Republican party must take no back ward step The merit system vras hers and here to stay Butterworth endorsed every word Mc Kinley had said Nothing smacked of mon archial forms so much as the spoils system Biggs Speech a Feature Tlie speech of Biggs of California was the feature of the day so far as the Democratic side of the question was concerned The house was in a perfect uproar while he mis talk ing all the members having crowded down into tile aisle to get within gound of his voice He claimed that Thomas Jefferson was the father of the spoils system and said lhat Clevelands civil service reform ideas nearly left him without a party Alto
