' Outbursts of radicalism were con
fined to but two or three unions, the
signs of these demanding "the full
product of their labors," stating that
"Industries are operated by workers.
why not own them?" "Labor produces
all wealth, why not obtain full sharer
and similar placards.
Other unions displayed banners urg
ing "justice for Mooney." "immediate
Ithdrawal of troops in Russia" and
"recognition for the Irish republic"
Labor's interest in the fredom of Ire
land was indicated by a banner an
nuuncing a debate to be held on the
Irish question on Friday night, the
meeting to be conducted under th
auspices of the Central Labor CounciL
.Mratratters Carry Flaics.
One splendid display of true Amer
icanisra was in the unit of the meat
cutters, where every man carried
small American flag over his righ
shoulder. No banners were displayed
In this unit, but the white blouses an
hats were an Indication of the clean
Iiness of these men In their everyday
toil.
Although the union labor officials
bad made announcement that the new
police union would have a place In th
line of march, the only evidence o
"Portland's finest" was in the usual
police escort, commanded by Senior
police Captain Moore.
A credible 'Showing was made by
the bakers and confectionery workers.

play of a long loaf of rye bread, on the
end of which was suspended an Amer
lean flag.
Wtafi Are Represented.
Although the metal trades section
contained but approximately 900 work
men. a banner announced that 10,600

bers of the Ladies' Auxiliary of the
Boilermakers' union.
Eight ex-service men led the small
body of men who represented the
Amalgamated Association of Street and
Klectric Railway Employes, it being
explained that most of the 1700 mem
bers of this local were working, there
being no holidays or Sundays for street
railway employes. A unique float was
the representation of a one-man car
in this section, complete in detail even
to the overhead trolley.

Longshoremen, printers, painters,
carpenters, blacksmiths and helpers all

lieve that the automobile has entirely
supplanted old Dobbin, four wonderful
specimens of thoroughbred horses were
entered in the parade by the teamsters'
union, just to prove that the horse is
