This was largely the necessary result of the paucity of speakers. It was impossible for half the people to hear what was said. and in fact no one seemed to care much about listening The gathering together in the public place and exchanging greet- ings and opinions seemed to be the idea uppermost. The marching, or coming and going, continued from 2 o'clock until after night fall. The best speakers were those furnished by the central committee, in- cluding the more noted of the moderate Socialistic leaders.
