GREATEST LABOR DAY IN HISTORY
Thousands of Working People in Many Cities Celebrate the
Day With Parades and Picnics.
ALL UNION MEN JOIN HAND AND
PRESENT A UNITED FRONT EVERYWHERE.
Great Interest and Enthusiasm Was Shown by Spectators Growth of the
Labor Orders the Past Year Unprecedented in Movement.
Washington, D. C, Sept 1. The
celebration of Labor day this year
posRcsBCS more than ordinary signi
ficance to the ranks of the organized
tollorB as .1 Is Just 20 years ago since
tho observance wns bogun. The Unit
ed States is the only country In the
world which has set asldo a legal
holiday devoted to celebrations by the
wage earners. Labor day is now al
most a national holiday, tho laws of
nearly every Btato and territory of the
union recognizing It.
Tho origin of Labor day is found
in an agitation bogun In the city of
New York in 1882. All the great la
bor organizations of the country par
ticipated In the effort to secure this
recognition of labor's cause, the ini
tiative in the movement bolng taken
by P. J. McGuIre, thon national sec
retary of the Journeymen carpenters.
But it was not until. Ave years later
that the efforts bore fruits In legisla
tion.. Then it was that the far west
ern stato of Oregon which passed a
law setting aside the first Saturday in
June for this observance. This law
waB passed February 21, 1887. Six
years later to the day this law wae
amended, and the present date, the
first Monday in September, was se
lected. New Jersey was the second
state to legalize this holiday, an act
being passed In the legislature of that
stato April, 8, 1887. New xonc ioi
lowed in May of the same year. Col
orado and Massachusetts followed In
line the same year, but it was not
until after 1890 that the other states
took similar aclon. Ohio passed a
Labor day law April 28, 1890. Illinois
passed Its law June 17. 1891, Indiana
March 9, 1891, and Minnesota, April
18, 1893. west Virginia and Nortn
Carolina did not legalize Labor day
Recognition of the rights and digni
ty or labor this Is the spirit which
moves in the event. It began in a
parade, and Is usually bo celebrated.
In 1882, a great labor demonstration
was hold in Now York. Tho Central
Labor union of that city, consisting
of numerous affiliated labor organiza
tions, arranged a great parade. Thous
ands of men were in lice with floats
banners, transparencies, badges and
carriages. It chanced that the Knights
of Labor were holding their conven
tion in that city at the same time,
and they were invited to witness the
turnout from Union Square. This
was Sopember 6, 1882. The invita
tion was accepted and the occasion
was a great success. rne paraae
from that tlmo was referred to as the
"Labor day parade."
Remembering the success of the
previous year the New York labor or
ganizations turned out again in 1883,
only tho date was changed to the first
Monday In September. In 1884, when
the Central Labor union met to dis
cuss a third performance, George B.
Lloyd, a Knight of Labor, arose and
offered a resolution that the first
Monday in September be declared
Labor day. This was adopted and
steps were at once taken to secure
enactment by the state legislature
making it a legal holiday. A bill was
Introduced in the legislature the first
for this nurpose but It did not re
ceive favorable consideration until
1887, by which time two other states
bad passed eucn a law.
Labor organizations in other states
made common cause with the Central
Labor union and tho movement be
came general among labor unionists
to get state legislatures to take ac
tion. In less than uve years a major
ity of the states had fallen Into line,
and by 1900 nearly all the states had
declared the first Monday in Septem
ber a legal holiday, In addition to
making a display by Its annual parade

self-protection and paid a high tribute
to tho American workingman. Dis
cussing Chinese exclusion he said:
assure you that nothing has ever been
said or done by me which was not
beneficial to American labor. It has
been my aim always to securo not an
unrestricted admission of Chinese la
borers, but only to removo unneces
sary obstacles to coming merchants
