Speeches by tlio Loaders In the Labo
Caused Resolutions WhlohW
Effect the Election.
Control hall on Fourteenth etrco
was the place of a ( grand labor mat
meeting Inst evening at which tli
Protective Labor union and moot o
the trades unions of the city wcr
largely represented. The Irish Amor
ioan band was in attendance and fur
lushed fine music. President Wnls
called the mooting to order at hal
past seven o'clock and proceeded tt
inako a very logical and comprohonsiv
speech , in which ho reviewed the
chief issues of the strike nnd the po
sition the laboring men nro in. Fion
the first ho urged them to organic
and to porfoot their organization. Hi
then said :
Wo have virtually accomplished ou
object \Vo have not done it nlono bu
by the ustistanco of our brother labo ;
unions. Iboliovothorois to boa niovo
mont in this country which will shako
capital to its foundation. It becomes
our duty to combine nnd resist the
inroads of capital. It is often sail
that capital nnd labor go hand in
hand. Just so long ait grasping capi
tal is allowed to exist , just so lone
will there bo this contest. As long fin J
remain president of this organization ,
so long will I fii ht for thii equal rights
of the Inbonnginon against capital.
The great contest twenty years ago
was caused by slavery. If the men
The tostored slavery had given it up ,
all the lives lost would have been
savodfiirglorious work and production
labor. So it is tvitli the capitalists.
The signs of the times now point to
the fact that they nro fostering capital
too much , nnd that it is crowing to bean
an incubus.
Never wus there such a labor move
ment in the United States as in
Omaha at the present time. The
whole country is looking on. But if
it had not been for the grand co
operation of labor , yon never would
liavo succeeded. All ovoc the city
nnd the ntato the capitalists are ac
ceding to the demands of the laboring
men. It therefore becomes the duty
of every workinginnn to protect him
jolf , and to do that wo must organize.
The slaves had just us much in slavery
days us you hare. I hold that slavery
daya have aono by. I hold that you
must now rise and compel capitalists
to give you a proportionate share of
their profits. If that is communism
or socialism , then I am proud to bo
called n communist and a socialist.
Just as long as thisstatoof afiairs
exists , wo must toll the capi
talists to give us all a
[ air share or proportion. They toll
us wo must not combine or organize.
Why do great corporations in Now
York , or why do the great railroad
companies in Iowa combine 2 Theirs
is combination for gain. There is or
ganization of capital. Why don't
lieso capitalists say to the laboring-
nen , "Wo recognize your rights7"
jut they don't do that. They com-
line among themselves. They lock
up the gram of the country. They
say , "Lot the working people starve
mlesa wo got what wo want. " Now ,
[ wan * the laboring men of this coun-
ry ttfaay , ' 'What do no care for your
lockotbooks ; we care only for our
ivoa and families. " Is there any con-
istency in the pretensions of these
capitalists ? When a year ago they
combined and wouldn't lot a particle
of grain go out , although you might
tarvo for lack of it ? Wow , wo want
o toll them that Wo wi l organize and
nako thorn give us fair wages. If we
anly look to our interests and organ-
zo wo can do this. They tell us ,
'Look at the ballot , but
lon't strike and don't organize. "
) o you know what this moans ? Not
d man has boon nominated in this city
a xcept by capitalists. Then they ex-
oect laboringmon to go up and vote ,
as if they wore lambs being led to the
slaughter. They toll you , "Don't
strike , but makoapoint at the ballot. "
We propose to take them at their
word. Wo propose to nominate men
of our own. Wo will go to the ballot
jox and deposit our ballots for thorn.
Wo propoiio to carry the war into
Another thing the laboring men
hnvo been mot with is partyism. I
was once a strong democrat. I thank
God I've risen above that. The
workingmen of the United States nro
awaktuniR to their interests. They
see that parties are controlled by
monopolies. When cither republican
ism ordumoorncy w inthousieiidiiiioy
tlioso coiporations have controlled
both. All the great crimes of the
country have come from the mixture
of corporations with legislative action.
Wo want men who will work for the
Interests of laboring men alone and
will despise corporations. Look at
your legislature , Kvory not there is
controlled by corporations. The cor
poration Horvunts hure sacrificed every
nteroat of the working men. They
mve done so many times and will do
t again. Talk about political parlies !
Wlntt can you think ot a party which
ma such a leader as Dr. Miller ? It i
m insult to working men who belong
o that party to talk to them about it.
What can you think of such a rnnn ?
[ have been controlled by parties , but
[ um awakened.
Competition is what is sucking the
ifo blood of labor , and the contract
system ia breaking the backs and
ruining the lives of laboringmon.
They cannot bo of any comfort to
heir families , Break down the con
tract system and you can do your
work like men and live like humans.
Labor and capital may bo equal ,
but grasping , grinding capital is not
equal to honest labir. This meeting
was called to have us come together
and talk this thing over. Wo want
to keep up our organization and be
ready tomeotthisgreatenoiny-capital ,
You all know what panics ard
what destitution arise from competi
tion. We propose to co-operate nnd
break ddwn this giant oppression by
controlling the ballot box and electing
our own officers. The woikingmeu
all over the country are pulling to-
cethor. I hope that the next United
Hates president will bo a working-man
nnd identified with the working causa
But especially in Omaha wo want six
councilman in the next city govern
ment. Wo want and will hnvo men
who will protect our interests. Mr.
Dunham is one of the councilmeu
who will come to you sometime nnd
n k your support. Then remembtr
that no is the man who ato/pud tie
work on the sewers because ho claims
that they cannot bo worked except by
contract , Lot us look out for
our interests. Let us disregard
partyhm. I don't want any ofiico p6r
would I take an office. Dut I want
good men sent there. Wo propose
now to tnko the ballot box and pul
our men where they will bo supported
by good tousing majorities. Dr. Mil
ler of the Herald , and Mr. Brooks o !
the Ilepublican , have abused us , bul
now the ) come around. I won't vote
for n limn who will not swear that he
will support the laboring man and
will put down the contract nystpm in

Ho said that if a radical reform waste

in such a way that the contract sys
tem should be abolished About the
board of public works , too , there
should bo some investigation , There
may be some things which you will
wish to correct. Now is the time to
It is easy enough to toll what is the
matter now. It is a boom in every
thing of n commercial nnd mer
cantile nature. This in what
makes living higher. Consequently
51.75 is low enough fo'r a
laboring man to live upon. Money is
establishing thn status of society. I
nin sorry for this , but I hope it may
ioon bo otherwise. Look well to your
interests. I sincerely hope you will
After music by the band , John
2uinn , Judge Wm. II. Riley , James
Knight , proficient of the Iron Mould

system of contract.
The committee was appointed ns

About 9 o'clock yesterday an
larm of fire was sounded , and was
tmnd to come from the vicinity of

rays of No. 1 , in whoso district thn
Ire was , responded with the hose

The fire was found to' have broke
out in the second story of a barn bo-
onging to Mr. R. Stevens , the car-

Unlto in Bonding Sympathetic Words
to Omaha's Bone nnd Slnow.
In addition to the many messages
of sympnthy and good cheer sent to
the Omaha workingmen from nil parts
of the country , the two sots of resolu
tions appended will be interesting ,
not nlono from their intrinsic worth
but ns coming from the opposite

At n meeting of the Amalgamated
Trades nnd Labor Union in Now York
city , on March 17 , the following reso
lutions wore adopted , a copy of which
was forwarded to President Walsh , ol
the Protective Labor Union of this
city :
Whereas , A number of working
people iu Omaha , Neb. , oppressud by
grinding corporate monopolists , to
prevent their condition daily becom
ing worse , have resorted to their legal
and almost only means of redressing
grievances , by refusing to work undur
the conditions exacted ; and
Whereas , In the exercise of their
rights the armed forces of the United
States nre being used to overawe nnd
intimidate thu workers into submis
sion ; therefore , bo it
Resolved , That the delegates of the
amalgamated I nidus nnd labor unions
of Now York nnd vicinity , in regular
meeting assembled , deplore and con
demn the use of the force named for
such purposes.
Resolved , That wo hereby call upon
the president of the United States to
withdraw the troops from Omaha and
not permit them to bo used nn they
now are , throwing the whole weight
ot influence of the entire country on
thb side of the employers.
Resolved , That a copy of those res
olutions bo sent to'ltHo president of
the United Statoa and to the uovornor
of Nebraska.
JAMKS LYNUH , President.
CHAS. H. EDKRIIAIIT , Secretary.
At n special mooting of the San
Francisco Trades' assembly , hold for
the purpose of taking into considera
tion the matters connected with the
strike in Omaha , the following reso
lutions were adopted :
Whereas , The strike at Omaha of
laborers in the employ of the Bur
lington & Missouri railroad and
Smelting nnd Refining companiea , as
being the last resort left them of enForcing -
Forcing compliance n ith their just and
moderate demand to receive an addi
tional moiety of the products of their
industry ; and
Whereas Those corporations , pleth-
me with tlio fruits of unpaid labor ,
lave sought and found other laborers ,
whose debased condition compels
; hem to bo used as the instruments to
degrade those on strike ; and
Whereas , The governor of Nebraska
and the president of the United States ,
with unseemly readinesshave , ordered
Toopa to that city to overawe and in
timidate American citizens in the ox-
erciao of their legitimate rights , and
odor in palliation of this prompt tie-
lance of Republican liberty the excus *
of preserving Jnw and order ; and/
Whereas , The acts of said governor
and president have had the effect of
jxaaperoting the people ; that life has
boon sacrificed to tbeir unjustifiable
imitationof the conduct of the mon-
archiej of Europe. Therefore , be it
now Resolved , By the Trades Assembly
of San Francisco , Cal , , that our warm
est sympathies ore hereby tendered to
the laborers on strike nt Omaha , and
: o all others everywhere who seek
: o enjoy , if only in a partial degree ,
the result of their toil ; that the irro-
} ressiblo conflict botwconlaborandcap-
.tal can only cease when tholaborerahall
bo possessed with what ho produces ;
that while wo deplore the nets of those
laborers at present employed by those
corporations as degrading to them
selves and tending to degrade others ,
yet wo view it as a portion of the vile
ind unjust system of competition
which must finally end , if persisted
in , in general degradation to all ; that
wo reprobate the ncta of the president
ot the United Statoa and the governor
of Nebraska as more in keeping with
the ruthlessness characteristic of the
autocracy rather than as the perform
ance of the duties of the people' ser
vants ; that wo invite nil American
citizens to ponder on these executive
acts , nnd discover in them daring en
croachments upon individual rights
und upon our form of government.
The cxprcseion of sympathy in the
resolution was on motion extended in
the men who had been imprisoned in
Pinunclal Itoport of the Board of
Education for tno Past Year.
