CHICAGO, Oct. 28. The postofilce
clerks of Chicago today entered the ranka
Of the trade unionists. The clerks have
afllllated themselves with the American
Federation' of Labor, and the .new organ
ization will bo knownas the Chicago
Postofilce Clerks' Union". It is claimed
that practical'y all of the 1400 postofilce
employes In Chicago are included in tho
Foremost among tho objects for which
the new union Is to strive will be the
adoption of the eight-hour working day
for letter-carriers. Another object to 'bo
given almost equal prominence will be
the agitation In favor of Federal legisla
tion that will fix absolutely the rate of
wages for letter-carriers and other post
office employes, taking the matter 'com
pletely out of the hands of 'the "Promo
tion Board" and other similar agencies.
It 'Is to be a labor union pure and. sim
ple, and will direct Its efforts solely to
the problem of bettering the lot of tho
rank and file of the postofilce employes.

Dr. Parkhursi, the pastor, was not in
formed 6f Mr. Bryan's presence, and his
sermon was an exposition of a portion of
the scriptures. "Word was evidently
passed through the congregation during
the service that Mr. Bryan was in the
church for when the benediction was
pronounced almost the entire congrega
tion rushed for the doorsand filled the
sidewalk and street in front of the build
ing. This crowd was -also augmented
by those who wpre on the street and in
the Square and by the time the party
reached tho hotel 2000 people were crowd
ed about them. So dense was the crowd
In fact that It became necessary for sev
eral park policemen to go In advance of
Mr. Bryan and ,clear a , way for him
through the crowd'. As he disappeared In
the entrance of thes hotel the crowd
cheered. , ,
Mr. Bryan stopped in his room .from 1
o'clock to 5, when he dined. Until 9 o'clock
tonight, when he left the Hoffman'House,
there was a steady "stream -of callers.
Mr. and Mrs. Bryan were both kept busy
shaking hands. Among the callers were
Congressman Sulzer, Frank Campbell and
James K. McGulre. ex-Governor Stone
and Congressman Richardson.
Promptly at 9 o'clock1 Mr. Brjan and
party left tho hotel for the Grand Cen
tral Station, where they took the train for
Albany. A squad of 22 policemen, two
roundsmen and a sergeant kept the crowd
back and a platoon of 20 mounted police
men escorted Mr. Bryan to the station.
Notwithstanding the fact that his depar
ture was not announced in any of tho
morning papers, the people appeared to
find it out inx some way and fully 3000
were gathered about the hotel eagerly
awaiting hl? appearance As soon as he
emerged, with Mrs Bryan, a great shout
On tho way up Broadway to the station
crowds of people lined the streets on eith
er side and shout after shout rent tho
air. At the Grand Central Station, Mr.
Bryan was at once recognized by tho
crowds awaiting their trains and It was
with, great difficulty that the police held
tho people back and kept a passage way
for the party. Mr. Bryan's special1 car,
the Rambler, was attached to the New
York Central train which was scheduled
to leave at 9:30. As the train pulled out
with Mr. and Mrs. Bryan on the rear
