Congress "Will be Petitioned
l)y American Workmen
Local Leaders Have Started a Move-
ment for This Purpose.
THE CARPENTERS ARE PREPARED
For Their Large Demonstration on the
State Day To-JTorrow.
AGITATING THE IGHT-HOUE SYSTEM
John M. Kelly, the well-known labor
leader and publisher of this city, who is a
delegate to the Central Trades Council, is
the promoter of a scheme to make Labor
Day a national as well as a State holiday.
He will draw up an act and have Represen
tative John Dalzell, of this city, present it
to Congress as soon as that body convenes.
At present Labor Day is observed in only
about half a dozen States in the Union, and
then upon different days. Mr. Kelly's idea
is to have it celebrated all over the country
in every State, city and town where there is
a laboi organization, upon the same days.
In speaking of the matter yesterday Mr.
"The celebration to be held in this city on
Monday, will be a poor showing of the
laboring classes of Pittsburg. The carpen
ters cannot be given too much praise for the
way they have taken hold of the matter,
and it is regretted that the other trades can
not turn out with them. We would have a
decent demonstration if the Trades Council
lad not put in all of its time this summer
passing resolutions submitted by persecutors
about foreign glassworkers. "When the
lody did awake to the necessity of making
a .show of some kind, it was then too late to
arrange for the demonstration.
BLCWOCTS HT OTHE STATES.
"The creation of Labor Day, is the only
piece of legislation the wage workers of this
State got from the present Legislature, In
"Sew YorK, ifew Jersey, Ohio, and Illinois
there will be great demonstrations held,
but I would like to see a turnout all over
the country. Every body has their national
holiday, and why should not the laboring
classes have theirs' My idea of Labor Day
is a holiday in every sense of the word. I
want it to be a dar, when a working man
who spends nearly all of his time in a mill
or workshop, can go out into the woods
with his family and enjoy himse'f. Such a
day would be an enjoyment to the employer
as well as the employes. "When Congriss

TWO SERIOUS ACCIDENTS.
Cable Cars Lose, the Grip nt the Forks
Vault and a Crash Follows People
Scared and Same Injured.
A serious accident happened on the Citi
zen's Traction Company's lines yesterday
morning, when two cars were badly
wrecked and some of the passengers injured.
About 630 A. M., when car 106 going East
on the Butler street division "passed the
Thirty-third street bridge, at full speed and
it was nearing the signal for unloosing the
grip, it ran into the vault and the grip was
broken. No accident, however, occurred,
beyond the passengers getting a little
shaken up and the grip smashed. About
40 cars were stopped by the accident for
upwards of an hour.
A second accident took place 20 minutes
afterward. Ho. 203 car coming into the city
from East Libert; was1 rounding the curve
at Thirty-ninth street, when the gripman,
A. White, noticed the blockade at the
power house. He immediately threw back
his brake, but to find it broken. Bealizing
the position he was in, he threw back the
grip, but in an instant later, the grip
crashed into the vault, and met with a worse
fate than car 106. The coach was full of
passengers, and when the grip ran into the
vault with great force, it smashed every
window, tossing the men to and fro.
Letter Carrier M. J. Campbell, of station
B, was thrown from the rear end to the front
of the car, sustaining slight injuries. The
gripman, Abe White, bad his jaw dislo
cated, his nose broke, and he was hurt in
ternally. It was amusing to see how the
passengers scrambled out of the window of
the cars, one tumbling over the other.

Yesterday the G. A. B. men came troop

charged double price for everything. He
says that.this year's Encampment was much
smaller than that of 1888, the parade includ
ing hardly 15,000 men, while that at Colum
bus last year numbered 60,000.
General Alger's selection as Commander in

In an interview a Dispatch reporter
had with him last night he said: "Antwerp,
where I am stationed since 1880, is a very
wonderful port and a very grand city. The
port is the largest in Europe. The shipping
tonnage for last year was in' excess of
3,000,000. The situation of Antwerp is
favorable as a transit port for Southern
Germany, Switzerland, Northern France
and Austria. From all these conntries
there is an immense carrying trade with the
outside world, both in imports and exports.
The maritimeauthorities a few years ago
made vast improvements on the irregular
condition of the docks, which made ship
ping extremely difficult. The uneven
places were filled and a solid wall of
masonry was bcylt, a mile in length, at a
cost of 520,000,000, which hacked the sea an.
At present the largest vessel afloat can sail
down the Antwerpen river to be loaded or
discharged'at the quay.

Many English, German, and, I am sorry to
say, few American vessels enter the port.
Antwerp is a favorite stopping place for
passenger Bteamers. There is a very exten
sive commerce between this country and
Belgium, and it is growing daily. I have
an enormous amount of miscellaneous cor
respondence from America. People gener
ally seek information and recommenda
tions to some reliable Belgian firm, where
a direct trade can be opened np without the
intervention of a middle man.
Belgium does its largest trade with the
Argentine Bepublic, South America; pos
sibly the wool trade which is carried on be
tween the two conntries is the largest in
Europe. The Antwerp Bourse is one of the
most prominent on the continent for pro
ducts such as grain, wheat, barley, corn,
lard, petroleum and wool. Very large sales
are completed daily.
It may be noted "that there is very little
emigration from Belgium to this country.
The people like living at home. They are
contented and prosperous. Occasionally
there are large strikes, bnt these happen in
the best regulated countries. The wages a
skilled or an ordinary laborer receives is not
to be compared in money Rvalue to what a
man gets in America.
THE BELGIANS NEED LITTLE.
It must, however, be taken into consider
ation that a Belgian can buy all the actual
necessities of life much cheaper than we can
over here. They do not live like the average
American. He does not want three meals a
day, and at each of them meat. Often he
is contented to take a glass of beer and a
crust and cheese. The workman here would
not do that
The education in Antwerp is very
good. There is tbe public school system
and the Boman Catholic. The pnblio school
is based upon similar principles to our own.
the education the. children receive is very
excellent. Every parent is obliged to send
his child to school until he reaches 13 years
of age. They are .taught three languages,
German, French and Flemish.
"The struggle between the Liberal party
and the Catholics is very bitter. At pres
ent the Catholic party is in the ascendancy,
The majority of the country is Catholic, be
cause they like following the King, who, I
may say, is a thinking man, with progress
ive ideas as to commerce."

"Yes, sir; it is," she replied promptly.

Trouble la Allegheny Orer a PoMci
derlng a Flag Lowered.
Quite a commotion was raised la Alle
gheny yesterday among the city officials and
the Jr. O. tT. A. M.'over a' little incident
that happened in the Parks on Friday after
noon. General J. B. Sweitier Counsil, Jr.
O. TJA. M. vas, returning from a funeral
and attempted' to march through the park
from Irwin avenne to Ohio .street Parle Of
ficer Flannigan heard the drum and saw a
flag flying and ordered them to stop the
drum and lower the flag, as it was against a
park role to parade on the grounds. They
desisted for tbe time, bnt soon word was
passed along and the flag was flung to the
breeze and the drums started 'a tattoo. No
attention was paid to the policeman, and
the conncil passed through -with a huzza.
Yesterday morning Flannigan called at
the Allegheny Mayor's office to make an
information against the council, bnt tbe
Jr. O. V. A. M. boys had also been there
and given their side of the case. They pro
tested that they had a right to fling the
American flag to the breeze when and
where they wanted to, and were very indig
nant in "reporting" the officer. Mayor
Pearson said he had nothing to do with the
park policei and referred Flannigan to
'Squire McKelvy. The Alderman, how
ever, preferred not to make the information
until he consulted City Solicitor Elphin-stone.-
Superintendent Hamilton, of the parks,
said that he had told the officer that if he
"didn't complain of the council he would
mention his dereliction to tbe board. He
said that it was not an insult to the flag, bnt
a compliance with a park rule that prohibits
the flying of banners or transparencies or
beating of drums, and he had even stopped
his own commandery of Knights Templar
from marching through the parks.

The Pittsburg veterans are making great

placarded with big posters announcing
cheap excursion rates.
A special train will leave for Gettysburg
over the B. & O. road at 8 A. si. on, the 9th

-were present,' and the CevseUmea, thinking
there was more light tfca was wanted at tke
meeting, decided to'iornwiid themselves ia
gloom, and exelgdtd. everybody bnt t&esa
selves from tke eUng. Why they sbonld
da this probably jwbody knows, as there
should be no seeWcy abont such a'matter.
After seenreJy fstesnng both doors, they
proceededin 'a stage whisper to look. over
the bids. For, the sale of. a plant, it was
found that the WestiBghosse Electric Light
Company,,, of thisJeUy, wanted $141,156.
This bid was for a Detroit tower, and with
an Indianapolis Jenney tower the company
wanted $136,lS6for a first-clas plant.
The Fort Wayne and Indianapolis Jsaney
Electric Light Company pat in a bid, or.
tneworK. at i40,iyo. xiy lnciaqett-we
single pedestal elevator tower. The Drash
Electric Light, Company's bid was $160,
90183. This wasfor a Detroit tower, aad
a Phoenix power plant. With a Westine-
honse power, plant, the company agreed to
do the work for $159,966 83; with a Back
eye powerplant. $156,101 83; a Mcintosh &
Seymour plant, $166,856 83; the Ball En
gine Company, $159,966 83.
Tiiere were 'special bids on additioal ma
terial, extra supplies, etc. The Westing
house Company was $4,000 lower than .any
of the others on the Indianapolis-Jenney
tower. Theyt were nearly $1,000 higher
than any other company on the, Detroit
tower. It is not at all likely that the Gas
Committee will recommend the bid with the
IndianapoliWenney tower, as the courts
have ruled- that it is an infringement.
The members of the committee do
not care to enter into any litigation
and for that reason, they claim they will
not touch it. Onaeconntof the Westing
house company being a home concern, it
is likely that, they will receive great con
sideration -when the time comes to award
The bids were put in proper shape and
will be presented to-the meetine of the Gas
committee next Thursday. It will then go
to Common Conncil the Thursday following
and a special meeting of Select Council will
be held on the 19th to consider tbe matter, J
