day's session of the annual convention of
the National Association of Manufacture
ended thla evening without any definite In
tentions aa to whether the orgsnlzatlon
Will adopt tha policy of sggresslve hostlll'y
to union labor outltnad by President D.
M. Parry In hla annual report.
Mr. Parry's attitude on the labor ques
tion was the chief point of Interest for the
delegates and. It la declared, waa the cause
(or tha largest delegate representation In
the history of the association. When Mr.
Parry was Introduced at the morning- ses
sion he recelred a remarkable ovation, the
00 delegates rtsjng and cheering him vig
orously. His report was Immediately re
ferred to committees.
At numerous times during the diy, in
resolutions and in speeches, the matter
ot trades unionism came to the aurface,
but at do time was there sny test vote on
which the attitude ot the convention was
shown. The convention showed Intense
feeling and there is every Indication that
the session tomorrow afternoon, when ths
report ot the resolution committee is to be
submitted, will prove a lively one.
Ths opening; of the convention at Tulane
hall this morning was mads tbs occasion
of an Impressive manifestation of New
Orleans "honpltsllty," The local committee
had mads elaborate preparations for ths
entertainment of ths delegates and their
women, and the arrangements were carried
out to ths entire satisfaction of tbs vis
itors. When Vies President J. W. Porch ot
Louisiana called tbs convention to order
cores of women residents and visitors
were present with the delegates. Mr.
Porch, after welcoming the visitors In be
half of ths commercial Interests of the
south, Introduced Mayor Paul Capdevllle
ot New Orleans and Qovernor Wi H. Heard
Who gars .hearty and eloquent welcome.

President Parry. Ths delegates flre.t ap
plauded wtth vigorous handclapr'.og, and
as tha enthusiasm grsw men and women
, climbed on their chairs, cheering lustily
and waiving hats and handkerchiefs. Mr.
Parry feSpoildea : briefly 'and then submit

V Battle writ. Orgaalsed Labor,
'. After calling attention to the marked
-' growth of the National Association ot Man
ufaoturers, which now has over 2,100 mem
bers on Its roll, Mr. Parry Immediately
took up the question of the battle between
the manufacturers and organised labor in
connection with ths eight-hour' and entl
conspiracy bills, which wers defeated at the
last session of congress.
Referring to this question Mr. Parry
By Its determined opposition to the pas
ssks of the elcht-hourind the antl-lnjunc-
tlon bills thla assocla..on performed what
to my mind was a great public service, the
, full significance ot which la, perhaps, not
Irsallxed even by many who were foremost
mn condemning those measures. The mere
.flfeating of these two bills does not tell
Tie story. What was done that was much
iror. ImDDrUnl and f ar-reachln waa to
give an opportune check to socialistic Im
pulse. It is Impossible to hide our eyes to
the fact that a large mass f the people,
forgetful ot the liberties and blessings they
now enjoy, are with restless ardor striving
to force the nation to what must eventually
mean Industrial disaster, if not anarchy
Organised labor, an army presumably
I.OjO.OOO strong, reeling Its strength and ex

wtvmaks congress engraft upon the statute
Stocks of the nation Ite sprigs of socialism,
legalizing those denials of Individual lights
which It naa heretofore sought to enjoin by
force. It drew up and fathered the eight

of which could well have been entitled "An
act to repeal the bill of rights guaranteeing
tne freedom or tns individual and tne lat
ter should have been termed "A bill to
legalise atrlkes and boycotts."
The Introduction In congress of such
treasures ss these and the support they re
ceived there and from the press and public

tations of the deep-seated power of an or

tear by the American people of the sub
servient and apologetic tone of many news

and also of the all too prevalent antago

rreseed with the gravity of the situation?
f organised labor had succeeded in getting
Its two bills enacted into law, more meas
ures of a similar character would have
followed close upon the heels and we should
have found socialism stealing upon us at
a rapid rate.
It ts Well that those who would revolu
tionise the social order should at the very
Inception of their national program meet
with organized resistance, and It waa for
tunate that there was an asxoclatlon strong
er.ouah to checkmate the Influence of or
ganised labor Ihle last winter, and that at a
time when In the full plenitude of Its
power It seemed certain of success. This
conflict and It was a conflict .and a very
momentous onedeserves to go down In his
tory as the first decisive defeat of the so
cialistic forces which have ot late years had
such surprising growth.
Una thoroughly alive to the true nature
of this un-American Institution of organ

ple, I firmly believe, will place their stamp !
of disapproval upon It. and it will dwindle!

$20,000 would be given to M. Besson.

NEW YORK, April 14. Former President
Grover Clevelrud was the principal speaker
tonight at a meeting held In the concert
hall ot Madison Square Garden In the In
terest of the Tuskegee Institute. Among
thoee on the platform were Mayor Low,
who presided; Booker T. Washington, Ed
gar O. Murphy, Dr. Lyman Abbott, Dr.
Murray Butler and Dean J. Van Amrlnge
of Columbia; W. H. Baldwin, Chancellor
McCracken of New York university; John
DeWltt Warner and George F. Peabody.
Mrs. Cleveland sat In the gallery with Mr.
and Mrs. Andrew Carnegie, who are Mr.
Cleveland's hosts while he Is In the city.
Negroes Provide National Problem.
Mr. Cleveland, who was greeted with pro
longed applause as he was introduced by
Mayor Low, said:
I believe that neither the decree that
made the slaves free, nor the enactment
that suddenlv Invested tham with the
rights of citizenship, any more purged
mem or tneir racial and slavery-ored im
perfectnese than that It changed the color
of their skins. 1 believe that among the
nearly D.ouo.dou negroes who have been In
termixed with our citizenship there la still
a grievous amount of Ignorance, a std
amount of vlclousness and a tremendous
amount of laziness and thrlftlessness. I
believe that these conditions inexorably
present to the white people of the Unitel
States a problem, which neither enlight
ened self-interest nor the higher motive of
numan sympatny will permit tnem to put
aMde. I believe our fellow countrymen In
the southern and late slave-holding states,
surrounded by about S.miO.WO negroes, snd
who regard their material prosperity, their
piace and even the safety at their civiliza
tion Interwoven with the negro problt m, are
enuueu io our utmost consideration and
At the same time 1 am thoroughly con
vinced that the efforts of Booker Wash
ington and the methods of the Tuskegee
Institute point the way to a safe and bene
ficent solution of this vexatious problem.
1 cannot, however, keen out of mv mind
tonight the thought that, with all we of tha
norm may do, the realization of our hopes

pend, except so far aa It rents with the
negroes themselves, upon the sentiment and
conauci or tne leaulng and responsible
white men of the south.
1 need waste no time In detalllna- the evi
dence that this aid and encouragement hat
thus far been generously forihcoming.
Schools for the education of negro chil
dren and Institutions for their industrial
training are scattered all over the tojih
and are liberally assisted by the southern
public and private funds. So far as I am
informed tne sentiment In favor of the
largest extension and broadest Influence of
tne lusKegee institute and kindred agen
cies Is universal; and I believe that with
out exception the negroes who fit them
selves for useful occupations and service
find wllilng and cheerful patronage and
employment among their white neighbors.
Whites Have Honest Prejudice.

nonnern inenas oi tne negro, but I have

The true colors of the bolting republicans
came out last night at the populist conven
tion, when a member of the steering com
mittee of the convention reported that the
leaders of ths fsctlon which nominated Ben
son had pledged themselves to support every
csndldate of the populists in exchange for
the nomination of E. A. Benson.
All through the convention H. F. Mcin
tosh spoke ot the understanding between
himself and the republican bolters, and
with one exception the agreement was ful
filled. The committee reported through Hugh F.
Mcintosh that the regular republican con
vention met at Washington ball on Satur
day and nominated officers, giving the
nsmes of the nominees; that "owing to
sharp practices" a number of the delegates
bolted and later nominated Erastus A. Ben
son; that the democrats met Saturday
night, reporting the names of the nominees
Your committee has consulted with prom
inent :epubllcans and democrats, with
union labor leaders snd citizens of various
political affiliation. We find that there Is
widespread dissatisfaction with nomina
tions made for mayor and some other offi
ces on both the regular republican and
democratic tickets. This dissatisfaction Is
founded on sound knowledge of fact as to
the political or personal unfitness of can
didates and its expression Is prompted by
patriotic motives. Your committee there
fore believes the time Is opportune for the
nomination of a full city ticket and to In
vite all citizens who desire good govern
ment for the city of Omaha to unite with
us In support of such candidates as are
men of known integrity and honor in Dub
lin snd private life and who can be de- 1
pended on to statl by the Interests of the
people In every emergency which may arise
during their term ot office.
Resolution Ilts Opposition.
This resolution was signed by all mem
bers of the committee except George Mag
uey, who refused to subscribe to ths recom
mendations. ' The strength of the conven
tion was shown by a motion to table the
report which brought out twenty-seven j

Candidate of Corporations.
The presentation of this brought George
A. Magncy to his feet in opposition. He
said !n part:
I am opposed to the nomination of Mr.
Benson. 1 draw the line on republicans,
lor they have never don anything for us,
not even been kind to us. until they
bolted and reeded ur help. I'M support E.
E. Howell or a populist. I have noth.ng
to ay against Mr. Kenson personally; buc
it Is the monopolistic and corporation ele
ment ot the republican party which Is back
lienson. If there Is any anti-monopolist In
the republican party It Is Edward Kofe
water. He has fought the corporations and
monopolies, while the men who ar backing
Mr. Benson are railroad attorneys an I rail
road lobbyists who were at Lincoln all win
ter attending the legislature to see thai it
did nothing. The men behind Benson, out
side of the Real Estate exchange and
there are but a few of them are the rep
resentatives of the corporations and m-n p
oll.its. The corporations are not for Frank
E. Mootes, are not for Rosewaler, an not
for Connell. They are for Benson.
Who went out of the convention Satur
day afternoon? Who led them? Ha ph
Breckenrldge. the law partner of C. J.
Greene, attorney for the Burlington rail
roadthese are backing Mr. Benson.
Where does Mr. Benson stand? No one
knows. We only know he I a tried and
true republican. We know that he has al
ways stood against what we (sioid for.
Henson cannot get on the ticket excepi by
petition unless you place -film there. 1 am
done with a party which is ready to fu.se
with any party In order to cirrv favor.
The ticket presented by Mr. Mclnto h Is.
with one exception, the ticket hande i ti
us by the manugers of the rump conven
tion. That ticket hnd upon it the name of
W. H. Elbourn. while this h::s Hie name o.1
M. V. O'Connor but there Is not a populist
on the ticket.
He was followed by J. J. Points in sup
port of Mcintosh's nomination.
Others in Opposition.
Then came J. W. Barnett, who opposed
the nominations on the ground that he op
posed a ticket made up by a dissatisfied el
ement of the republican party. Richard Cody
opposed the tl?ket. Dr. Cook favored the
ticket as presented, denouncing Ed How
ell as the man who "bitched the Omaha
charter." but also denounced Georgu Smith,
its candidate In the Sixth ward. Martin
Langdon spoke In favor of the pioposed
James Southard gave assurance that the
bolting republicans bad solemnly promised
to support for office every candidate other
than mayor who should be nominated by
the populists In case the populists would
nominate E. A. Benson for mayor. "We
have got with us the campaigners, the
workers, the contributors if we nominate
Benson tonight. We havo a 1th us such men
ss James P. Connolly, Walter Moise, Wll
; Ham A. Paxton such men ss these with us
! If we nominate E. A. Benson. We can
fuse with the honest, upright citizens of
Clamor from Bad Men.
John Quinn declared that In bis thirty-six
years' residence he had never beard so much
clamor for good government from bad men
such clean men as Westberg and Broatch.
Dr. P.abody tried to nominate H. F. Mc
intosh for mayor, but be declined.
Silas Robblns deplored the fsct that the
committee bad turned to the rump repub
licans. He said: "These fellows got rlp.
for reform about J o'clock Saturday. If
they'd had one more vote they would still
be green. The faction that the committee
wauts to support Is the one which elected
the representatives to the legislature last
fall. They could have changed the charter,
but they didn't do it. Mr. Benson deesu't

INSPECTS MILLARD RIFLES
Adjatant General Cnlver Orders
Omaha Company In the Ra
Adjutant General J. H. Culver arrived
In the city last night from Lincoln for the
purpose of Inspecting the Millard Rifles
with the view to its eligibility for admis
sion to the Nstlonsl guard of ths state,
and is stopping at the Her Grand.
The Inspection was held at the Millard
Rifles' armory Inst night and was In all
rnspecta a most' successful one. Adjutant
General Culver at once issued an order,
which will be formally promulgated to
morrow, mustering the Millard Rifles Into
the National guard as a company of the
First regiment, to fill the vacancy caused
by the disbandment cf the company ot that
regiment at Tecumseh.
General Culver says ot the National guard
of the state: "The Nebraska National
guard is In excellent condition and we are
endeavoring to improve its efficiency In
the matter of better reports and esprit de
corps, with the most encouraging auccess.
I believe that the Nebraska National guard
can be made second to none in efficiency
In the country and It shall certainly be
our aim to make it so.
"Even the reduction of the salary of
the adjutant general by the late general
assembly will not affect the standard of
ths National guard. This wss caused, I
presume, by reason of the necessarily In
creased appropriations for the Stute Sol
diers' homes at Mllford and Grand Island.
Anent this subject I believe the Grand
Army of the Republic will or should make
some strong recommendations relative to
the homes st the coming department en
campment at Fremont.
"Thus far I have only conferred by tele
phono wtth Colonel McClernaud, adjutant
general of the Department of the Missouri,
relative to the new nstlonsl gusrd law
passed by congress, but will have a con
ference with him tomorrow in person on
the. subject. The messurc Is s good ono
and will be of great advantage to the
National guard all over tho country and
will ' Increase Its efficiency materially."
