prayer by Grand Chaplain Sorrety Mayor Gourley welcomed tho delegates to tho city Chairman Adams then introduced Hon Ohruineoy M Depow president of the New York Central Railroad Company The ap pearance of the distinguished gentleman was a signal for the wildest applause Wnen order had been restored Mr Depow pro ceeded to deliver an address which was listened with great interest Several times ho ivus compelled to pause owing to tho deafening applause of his hearers MR DBPWWS SPEECH Mr Dopew spoke highly of the Brother hood of Locomotive Engineers and said that during the period of its existence pros perity and growth hundreds of labor organ izations had beon formed and dissolved Thoy bad boon started to carry out novel theories or to put in practice unusual and untried processes The success o your body is duo to its rigid adherence to tbe right principles upon which it was founded No labor organization can permanently suc ceed whose whole and only object is to in crease wages and diminish hours It lacks tho essential bond of mutual sympathy and brotherly help n bearing or lightening each others burdens Tho tend on cy of such an organization is inevitably and rapidly to failure Tho fundamental idea of tho engineers brotherhood is first charity Jn tho support of tho Injured and contributions to tbe family of tho dead second education wliich perfects the artisan in tho theory and practice of his trade and broadens him for larger usefulness as a citizen third protection securing and maintaining your rights Your record is the history of contracts between employer and employee at home or abroad and in the in tolllgonce and prosperity of your members Mr Popow snoko or the allpervadiug Idea of the past few years of trusts and said that this universal effort to absorb tho individual todividothe people Into employ ing com panics and employees and to des troy competition will inevitably end In dis aster Hostile legislation and the laws of trade will leave only tbe legitimate enter prise surviving In the same way from tho same causes there have been several ambitious attempts to form gigantic labor trusts which should combine under one central authority every occupation in which tho wageearner could engage In all such as sociations of trades and occupations having nothing Iu common certain qualities of audacity fluency of speech and capacity for manipulating caucuses and conventions push forward many men who know little of tho groat Interests confided to thoir care Labor must bo as intelligent as capital upon its own grounds The committee which calls upon tho employer or tho railroad officer must know Its own busiuess as well as ho knows from angry conten tions because ol ignorance comes the exer cise of brute force and violence fails to secure that which in nino cases out of ten could have boon had by intelligent repre sentation Hundreds of committees of our employees have beon to see mo and I can safoly say after a full and freo discussion which always took place that not one of them ever went out of my ofHce except to carry back a satisfactory message to theiv constituents The teason for those ready settlements was thiib tho men understood their own business and knew precisely what they wanted and how muoh the company could atVord to concede but in tho operations of what I may say the labor trusts I have had different Mr Depew cited an instance whore fifteen men at ono point on the lino were ordered out by tho chief of tbeir local assembly who was a shoemaker and who took that action because lie bad had a row with a passenger conductor On another occasion a high in the order called on Mr Depow who soon discovered thac he knew nothing of what be was talking about Tho official confessed that he bad never beon in tho railway service in bis life Such representatives of organised said Mr Depew bring it into disrepute both with the employers and the public A committee called upon mo last fall with a series of complaints all of which were quickly and satisfactorily adjusted They then made a demand In behalf of the loco motive engineers When I informed them that your order could speak for Itself they said their objaot wasto break up the organ of locomotive engineers and gather into ono organization every department of railway service If the management of the York Central would recognize the en gineers only through them this result would bo brought about and upon a much lower basis than tho brotherhood could admit and if we did not do so thoy would strike and tie up the road u I r Depow informed tho committee that they might do their worst but in a matter affecting the Brotherhood he would recog nize only that body Tho threatened strike never came Speaking of the great Central strike De pew said years of successful travel of fair frank and friendly discussions with the employees of tbo Now York Central had led them to believe that a strike was impossible on that road In that trusthe went abroad on his annual holiday to havo his hopes rudely shattered by a cablegram annotincinc a strike But the ho added were true to tbe relations which for many years had the railroads The locomotive engineer re ceives about a month and if ho deseris his eagine becomes subject to severe punish ment Libraries have been written upon labor and capital but they are mostly trash In the varying conditions of our complex civil ization no general plan seems possible which will be applicable to all cases as a relief for the antagonism between capital ami labor Every difficulty must be settled upon its own merits It is just here that an intelli gent labor organization composed only of tho occupation which seeks to secure a right or redress a wrong can meet its employer upon grounds which will show their mutual dependence and promote their common ben efit It is just here that ignorance or in competence on the one hand produces Imi tation and resistance on tbe other The period ought to come when the employees in any industry shall not be arrayed in hos tile camps over tho whole country against their employers in the same business when combinations will not be of workers on the one hand and officials on Tho other against each other but with good sense and friendly dispositions they shall meet upon a common ground for a common good and with an overwhelming sense of common in CHIEF ARTrrCtt SPEAKS Grand Chief Engineer Arthur was next introduced and enthusiastically received He congratulated the Brotherhood on the healthy condition oC its affairs and said in part Though there is a oneness of purpose there is a diversity of opinion and we hone during the course of our debates u find the equation by which tho problem of oar diffi culties and differences may be solved It is by honorable action that we have i achieved success as a labor organization not by rnighfc riot by loud boastful asser tions of what twing to our numbers we might compel corporations to do No that has never beenourpolicy We ask but fair just dues nothing more 7f there be those who would array labor against capital am not one of them or with If there bo those who regard tho in terests of labor and capital as naturally or properly antagonistic I do not agree with them Tho Interests of labor and cap ital are identical or to bo more accurate reciprocal Any argument respecting labor topics wnioh does not recognize and concede tho truth of this croposition must needs be fallacious and as a matter of fact it is so recognized and conceded by all eminent authorities on tho The Insurance feature of tho Brotherhood was touched upon at length by the speaker During the past fiscal year the Brotherhood has paid to widows and orphans and dis abled members making a grand total of

Dubois feels that no serious inconvenience will re sult from the delay in tho appointment of these officials The reason that the President cannot ap point a Marshal and a United States Judge for the
