Sunday In Chicago.
CHICAGO , May 2. There was no excite
ment In tlio city to-day. The weather was
beautiful and tlic masses seemed to bo enjoy
ing the warm sunshine Instead of discussing
the labor problem. Capitalists und heads of
laijco establishments seriously consIitoieJ
dm matter , nml there were nlso meetings of
many labor organizations. The streets wore
not nwily so crowded as on Saturday , r.nd
uven the socialist hcadqnaitcrs were nigh
deserted. Theio was no disorder at any of
the freight houses or In the Intnbcr districts.
Unt In both trouolo Is expected
to-morrow. The lenders of the
labor moNcmcnts expect many strikes
to-morrow at additional inantifactitr-
Ing establishments , and theio wcro causes of
excitement , and will poihaps icsult In a col
lision with the police. llallrond man say
they will open the height houses to-morrow ,
with the old men If they come , and now men
If they must. The general opinion among
them Is that the road cannot afford to pay the
advance demanded by the men , and they
will not make any concessions. Any
how , It Is thought the "war , "
It thcio Is any to-moirow , will
bo at the Burlington yaids , as that company
' " has declined its Intention of doing Its busi
/ ness despite the strikois. An unexpected
complication In the freight handlcis' btiiko
seems to Imvo eoinu up in the icportedic-
fusal of the switchmen of the various loads
to handle their ears loaded by "scabs. " It is
not certain , however , that such action will
In the lumber districts trouble is antici
pated from the fact that so many of the em

make the concessions demanded by the men ,
and If they aio determined to make mischief
there is iv very large and difllcnlt teriltory to

The manufactories that closed down Fri
day night to give the men a holiday , will not
open again in the nioining on account of
business , and others have icfused the de
mands of their employes and will form com
binations which will test the staying qual
ities of the men to their utmost.
At .1 meeting of Itothchild's strikers this
nf lei noon a communication was read ad
dressed to their woikmon nt Chicago. Cin
cinnati , St. Louis , Kansas City and Denver ,
saying the linn would pay ft 10 per cent
advance on piece and day work , and inatign-
iato the eight-hour movement. Tluty wished
all the men to return Monday , May 3. A
heated debate followed this and a majority
of the men seemed to favor the accepting of
the linn's offers. Hut Hanscli , president of
the Cabinet Jfnkeis' union , and Stathnccht.
a professional agitator , violently denounced
the Idea of accepting any thing. A vote was
then taken and the oiler rejected. .Michael
Mcllone and John lioynolds , chairman and
Hccietaiyof the stilkcis' committee , then
brought tilings to a ciMs by. resigning their
ollices and declailng their Intention of goIng -
Ing back to work. Great confusion ensued
and Agitator Stathnecht asked Wei lone.
in an ominous toiie , if ho know
what tlje result of his stop would be. The
men icplicd they did not caio what the result
would be , and left the loom , followed by the
anathemas of the union , which weio
launched at them by Unnsch. The meeting
then passed under the control of the agita
tors , and a motion to stand out prevailed.
All power was vested In the hands of tlio
union , and the men cut themselves off ,
on motion , from the piivllego of communi
cation wltli the linn. Some of the men
noveltheless privately admitted their Inten

The Eight-Hour Day in Chicago.
CHICAGO , May 1. [ Special Telegram. ]
The eaily morning hours of May 1 , the day
set for the inauguration of the oldit-honr
day among wage-workers In Chicago , wcro
ehnractPil/ed by a quietness which was a re
minder of Sunday. In manufacturing dis
tricts the 0 and 7-o'clock whittles were , for
the most part , silent. Streets In the centeis
of industry were noticeable by icason of the
absence of the usual hurrying crowds of
\\oiklngmcii , with their lunch baskets and
dinner palls in hand. Such sticets as Mar
ket , Deaiborn , Monroe and others , on which
heavy trucks are usually dilvcn , did not con
tain half as many teams as usual. Hundreds
of factories were Idle Bomo shut down on
account of the strikes , others closed lor the
day to glvo their employes a holiday. The
idea of holding n gicat parade to-day under
the auspices of the tiades and labor nshoin-
biles was abandoned , much to the disappoint
ment ot many. The first stnitllng news of
the moi n ing came at 0:30 : o'clock. A
croud of men fiom the lumber yaids
and planing mills , numbering i,000 ! or 4.0CO
men , got together In the vicinity ot Twenty-
second btreet and Uluo Island nvoiuie. A
leader \\assolected and n line formed. In
the fiont rank a mpn can led the icd Hag.
The body of men then moved doMI in the
direction of the McCoimlclc icaper woiks.
Alter the Height handlers of tlio Ihnllng-
ton load o lt woik yesteiday aftoinoon , they
matched about to the fielght depots of the
other roads und made speeches to the men
there employe I , advising them to demand
eight houis with Ineieased pay , and inviting
Ihom to a meeting to Do held this momlng at
Jlaiilson street bildgc. In icspoiibu to tills
invitation , between SOD and 400 men gatheied
there ot 8 o'clock and listened to speeches
made by their fellow-strikers. The Ilrst
oiator urged them to visit all depots , nigo
the men to stilko for fewer
hours and moro pay , but to
lie caicf id not to use violence or create any
dlstui banccs. Another speaker said the
\Vnbash had kept Its men at work till mid
night last night loading and unloading
freight \lolation of the understanding
that they would not loqulro work over hours ,
He advised that they vlblt the Wabasli depot

did not do It to pull them out. This was 10-
colvcd with chceis , and the crown immedi
ately foimed four abreast andstuitod for the

A review ot the situation at noon Is briefly
this : Uuslness In Chicago Is at n standstill ,
nothing Is being done at any of the railways
or at any of the l.ngo factories In the city ,
and In many cases the manufactiircis wisely
determined to give their employes a holiday
to-day , so that It will really take until Mon
day to show what places aio closed on ac
count of the eight hour movement.
CHICAGO , May 1. [ Press. ] Five hundred
striking lollroad freicht handlers met at
