He Strongly Defends Unionism and
Issues Challenge to Parry
Shaffer, Who Has Been .Miss
las', Keeps His Appointment.
INDIANAPOLIS. Ind.. Sept 7. The La
bor day parade today was the largest ever
seen here. The address of the day was
delivered this afternoon by Sampel Gom
pers, president of the American Federa
tion of Labor. President -Gompers ad
dressed 15,000 persons. He said In part:
"Today we have great machines of la
bor, new tools of labor, dividing and sub
dividing the labor performed, specializa
tion of industry going on, the worker do
ing a thousand, aye, ten thousand, times
over and 'over a little given thing in the
great beehives of industry, and all these
machines, propelled by the power of steam
and electricity. Now, I ask every thought
ful man and woman within the sound of
my voice; I ask any one who may perhaps
have the opportunity of readiny anything
I may say this afternoon, how can a
workman, an individual workman, act
upon his own initiative and from his own
volition? Where can he act as an indi
vidual to try to secure improvement In his
condition, much less protection against a
great corporation?
"Some may say the -workingmen lose
their individuality when tltey join a union
of labor. In the United States the work
lngman has lost his Individuality Just as
soon as he enters one of our great mod
ern industrial plants."
President Gompers turned his attention
to D. M. Parry, president of the National
Manufacturers' Association. He said Mr.
Parry had constituted "himself the savior
of society and civilization. His references
to Mr. Parry were from the standpoint of
ridicule. Said he in closing:
"A strike may bring about strife and
discord, but as soon as it Is done, better
feelings- are engendered and mutual re
Bpect is brought about. I do not think I
would care to have a strike in Mr. Parry's
factory, but I don't believe it would bo
an unmixed evil, for he might learn the
lesson that Mr. Baer has learned that
there Is something to arbitrate, to dis
cuss, to concede.
"Organized labor has no feeling against
Mr. Parry- It has no designs against his
life, his children or the safety of hl3
property. He is as safe from labor as is.
President Roosevelt.
"I have never, as yet, challenged Mr.
Parry to joint debate, but I say now I
will challenge Mr. Parry to a debate
upon the labor question and the labor
movement, not necessarily before a great
public gathering, although I will do that
if it pleases him, but I am willing to
meet him in debate before any economic
association that he may select. I will
meet him before the Indianapolis Minis
terial Association or the Manufacturers'
Association, or that of any other city in
America. I challenge him to submit the
report that he prepared for the last con
vention at New Orleans, to the noxt con
vention of the Manufacturers' Associa
tion, and ask the convention to indorse
all he said In that report He knows
the National Manufacturers' Association
will not be committed to such an unjusti
fiable and unreasonable attack on organ
ized labor."
Missing; Labor Leader Keeps En
gagement nt PonghlceepKle.
Theodore Shaffer, president of the Amal
gamated Association of Ironworkers, who
has been missing from his home In Pitts
burg, surprised the labor unions of this
city today by appearirig at the Labor day
celebration. He had been announced as
the orator of the day, but owing to the
published accounts of his disappearance
Herman Robinson, of New York, secre
tary of the New York Central Labor
Union, was invited to take his place.
Mr. Robinson was received by the com
mittee and escorted to the Hudson River
Driving Park, where more than 1000 per
sons were assembled. Just before Mr.
Robinson was introduced Mr. Shaffer ar
rived in a cab and made his way to the
platform, not recognized by the crowd. He
looked pale and showed signs of exhaus
tion. After Mr. Robinson's address President
Shaffer was Introduced. In a husky voice
he said:
"The thing I would most gladly do is
to keep still and say nothing. Two years
ag 1 made a mistake by trying to make
13,000 people hear me, and as a result of
such efforts I am reduced physically.
Nine months ago I made three speeches
in one day, and I will not again allow peo
ple to use me up in that way."
That was all the reference he made to
himself, and he then proceeded, with evi
dent difficulty, to make a brief speech
When asked to make a statement, he
said he was anxious to make one, and
arranged with the reporters to meet' them
at the Nelson House at 7 o'clock tonight.
He was then driven away in company
with John Bradley, a prominent local la
bor man. It was found that he had not
been at the Nelson House at all and a
thorough search of the city failed to re
veal any trace of either Mr. Shaffer or
Mr. Bradley. It Is "believed that Mr. Shafy
fer hurried away from tho city.
Demonstrations the Greatest Ever
Blade by Organtezd. Lnbol.
CHICAGO, Sept. 7. It Is estimated that
between 100,000 and 125,000 trade unionists
took part in the Labor day parade here
making it tho greatest demonstration in
the history of Cook County labor celebra
tions. The procession marched past a re
viewing stand opposite the Auditorium
The day was generally observed as a
holiday, nearly every factory in the city,
the banks, Board of Trade and Stock Ex
change suspending business. The parade
disbanded at noon and a majority of the
marchers hurried to various picnics In
outlying parks and -groves, where a num
ber of locally prominent speakers deliv

"Walking Delegate Parks Gets Both
Cheers and Hisses.
NEW YORK, Sept. 7. Conditions were
never better than today for the celebra
tion of Labor day. clear skies and cool
breezes giving ideal weather for parades,
excursions and other outing recreation.
The central feature of the celebration
was the parade, which took place this
morning, representatives of unions' in the
board of building trades and of some out
side unions marching under the leadership
of Sam J. Parks, walking delegate of the
Housesmlths' and Bridgemcn's Union.
Behind Parks and his 'associated walk
ing delegates, came an open carriage con
taining William S. Devery, ex-Chief of
Police. Parks Is under conviction on
charges of extorting $200 from a contrac
tor for calling off a strike, and was last
week released from Sing Sing Prison
pending appeal proceedings. His progress
from Fifty-ninth street to Washington
Arch was attended with clfeering and
nissmg, applause and Jeering, insulting
remarks and plaudits.
tA eight or ten different points women
standing at the curb hissed while Parks
was passing and then turned to cheer the
rest of the parade. On several occasions
there was cheering on one side of the
avenue and hissing on tho other. Tho
parade was reviewed by no city officials,
Archbishop Ireland Delivers Strong
Address at St. Paul.
ST. PAUL, Sept 7. The principal speak
er at tne Labor day picnic here today was
Archbishop Ireland. He spoke, in part
as follows:
"A country without capital Is impov
erished. Labor should Invite It Into use;
never frighten It away by making it un
safe or depriving it of reasonable profits.
On the other hand, capital must respect
the manhood of the wage earner, and al
low him as far as It can, "without loss to
itself, a fair wage. Extravagant and need
less expenditures by capitalists do harm
in Irritating the poor, and should be
"A generous use of capital for the pub
lic good, whether In purely beneficent
or industrial enterprises, does much to
soften the asperities of opposition. We
should not be afraid of capital, in what
ever form It comes, whether In large per
sonal accumulation or In trusts or In syn
dicates. Names aro bugaboos that should
nbt frighten. As a matter of fact, with
out largo aggregations of capital great en
terprises are not possible and the country
is not developed. It Is time enough to
hold the hand against trusts and syndi
cates when they do harm. If they are
known to do harm the country will at
tend to them. If they do no harm and
on the contrary do good, they should be
"The wage earner has rights his right
to a living wage; and his right to rea
sonable hours; his right to more than even
a living wage when circumstances and
success warrant it Wage earners have
a right to combine and form trusts and
syndicates and call them labor unions.
Labor unions have given wage earners the
consciousness of their rights, and have
done much to obtain higher wages and
shorter hours. But labor unions must be
on their guard against serious evils
threatening them. They cannot be tol-
eratedif they interfere with the personal
liberty of nonunion men who have a right
to work in or outside of unions as they
"Public opinion and public law will and
must protect this liberty. It were social
chaos if we were to impose our opinions
on others by force. What right have I to
impose my religious belief by force? What
right have labor unions to Impose their
opinions by force? It is wrong in labor
unions to limit the output of work on the
part of members. The members them
selves are injured, they are reduced to a
dead level of Inferiority. They are al
lowed no opportunity of rising to a high
er or better position. Society is Injured
as it is injured by everything that pre
vents its members from putting out their
talent to best advantage.
"TheTunctions of law In regard to cap
ital and labor Is to protect the natural
rights of both capitalists and -wage-earner
to care for the weaklings, and
the unfortunate. Never should it go as
far as to destroy or to limit personal en
terprise or personal liberty. State Social
Ism, allowable In things which can not be
done by individuals, is most hurtful when
It goes beyond bounds. The prosperity of-
Amerlca Is due to individual effort State
Socialism Is utterly abhorrent to Ameri

LONDON, Sept 7. 'As an outcome of the disclosures made In the. report of
the South African "War Commission, it is ' rumored that the resignation of -Lord
Lansdowne. the ex-War Secretary, and present Foreign Secretary, may be expected
shortly. It Is added that be will be succeeded as Foreign Secretary by Mr. Brod

be made head of the "War Office.
A meeting of the Cabinet will be held phortly for the purpose of discussing
the fiscal question now before the country, but It is generally believed that the
attitude of the people with nrespect to the .findings of the "War Commission, as
shown by the proposal to send a monster petition to King Edward for Lord
Lansdowne's dismissal and by tho publication of cartoons illustrating his in
competency will bo considered, and that something will bo determined upon as

with his wagon at the corner of Jackson
boulevard and Clark street and watched
tho parade, and when he attempted to
drive away ho was stopped by some of
the teamsters In tho parade, who asked
If he had a union card. He tried to ex
plain that he needed no card: that It was
his own team, and that he was doing no
hauling. Several hundred men gathered
around the wagon and attempted to pull
him ofL An escort of police enabled him
to get several blocks away, when a mob
numbering fully 1000 people caught up
with him. He whipped up his. horses and
for nearly a mile he was pursued, when
finally the mob cut the harness of his
horses Into small pieces, beat the animals
with canes, compelling them to run away,
and then beat Thornton badly.
Thornton employs a large number of
teamsters, all of whom are members of
the union, and has never had any trouble
with the organization before, today.

A Consular dispatch from Salonlca says
that according to authentic Information
the Insurrection In the district of Monas
tir has been practically stamped out
Bashi Bazouks assisted the regular troops
In tho work of repression, which Is said
to have been carried out with sanguinary
ruthlessness, the object of the Turks be
ing apparently to exterminate not only
the Bulgarian Inhabitants, but all the
Christians of whatever nationality.
Russia and Austria Say It la Se
cretlx Encouraging Rebels.
BERLIN, Sept. 7. The Austrian and
Russian representations regarding the
necessary action against Bulgaria reveal
the attitude of these powers toward Tur
key and the whole Balkan question.
They affirm that Bulgaria has been act
ing in bad faith In giving secret counte
nance to the insurgents and giving them
hope of ultimate success, thus rendering
Turkey's task of pacification more diffi
cult and delaying yet longer the execu
tion of the programme of reform ac
cepted by Turkey.
The language of the joint proposal as
sumes that a settlement of the Balkan
trouble Is attainable if Bulgaria Is forced
to cut off all connection between the two
sides of the frontier.
No official confirmation Is obtainable of
the Constantinople dispatch that Austria
and Russia will ask the signatories of the
Berlin treaty to sanction their joint mili
tary occupancy of the disturbed territory,
but such a proposal Is not considered Im
probable. Roumania Is enforclnsr neutralltv in
L compliance with the, advice of Russia,
Macedonian agitation within her borders.
The pope's refusal to appeal to the
powers to act, save In the direction of
stopping jthe massacres In the Balkans, Is
accepted as evidence that even the holy
see appreciates the Inadvlsablllty of inter
vention at this time.
Turkey Is largely increasing the num
ber of troops In Macedonia, in spite of
her depleted treasury, and Is determined
to suppress the revolution before the
powers can Intervene. In the vilayet of
Monastlr the rising has been ruthlessly
suppressed, the Turks having burned
many villages and committed grave ex
cesses. A dispatch to a news agency from Con
stantinople says that military attaches of
Great Britain, Austro-Hungary, France
and Russia have arrived at Monastlr, and
will commence an investigation into tho
situation In all the disturbed districts of
European Turkey.

SOFIA, Sept. 7. The revolutionary" of
ficers received information today that the
Turks have burned or otherwise nearly de
stroyed all the villages In the district of
Kastoria, near the Greek frontier.
The villages In that district were the

1000 to 3000 inhabitants. Among the larg
est burned were Zagarotchlna, Dumbenia,
Kenomladl. Mokrent and Kosinelz. Al
together about 25 villages In that part of
Macedonia have been destroyed. It I3
added that SCO women and children, fugi
tives from Zagarotchlna, went to the
Turkish commander of the district to seek
assistance and protection' from the Bashi
Bazouks. The commander promised them
protection, but when the fugitives left
the Bashi Bazouks pursued, outraged and
