for tabor Day was thoroughly dis
Mayor Htruble held the view that
aa no good could be done the victims
of the catastrophe at the Houston
lire, It would be Inadvisable to can
cel arrangements, especially as there
wero largo numbers of outsldo visi
tors In town attracted by tha advanca
notices. Councilman Upp also spoke,
concurring In tho mayor's stand.
An address was mndo by Chas. J.
Ferguson, whoch was appealing In
the extreme. Mr. Ferguson, who but
recently sufforod a great boreave
mont, said that those still living
know that at some unknown time,
they too must pats out.
"Thoio victims of tho flro" said
Mr. Forguson, "are, possibly, hap

then, ronllio that, with so little sun
shlna In the world, It behooves us to
add what mlto wo can to tho happi
ness of tha living. Tho dead aro
gone they cannot be recalled;
those who will gather today for a
little brief pleasure In tho midst of
humdrum life should not be disap
pointed. Perchance those who are
gone, could their Voices be beard,
would say to us to proceed and give
sunshine while wo may." Mr. Fer
guson's little talk was received in a
deep silence, more Imprcsslvo than
The secretary of the labor council,
W. F. Kay, In a brief spoech stated
that the question of proceeding with
the day's programme was laid before
those present as cltltens only. No
question of organised labor was In
volved, "With deepest sympathy
for those who hnva gone" said Mr.
Kay, "we must still remember that
we owe a duly to the living. A train
filled with workers Is now on Its way
from Weed. The pcoplo coming to
visit us are expecting to enjoy a lit
tle brief respite from their dally toll
and havo Incurred discomfort and
expense, to be with us. Thoro Is no
Intention of celebrating. Our outing
will bo tinged with sadness, because
as I speak, there aro an unknown
number of bodies of working people

ruins. Hut wo will drapo our ban
ners with crapa; wo will do our
sharo towards taking cara of tho tin
fortunate sufferors. To dance will be
unthinkable, and wa cannot oven
consider that part of tho program.
Dut In my personal opinion, wo are In
duty bound to carry out our obliga
tions." A rising vote was then taken, and
It was unanimously decided to go
ahead with the morning and after
noon programjmes. A subscription
list waa passed around and a consid
erable sum secured, which waa turn
ed over to the mayor, as the neclous
of a relief fund.
