T. V. Powderly read a clipping from
a Massachusetts newspaper, showing
that the city of Lowell borrowed $100,
oud for the purpose of giving employ
ment to unemployed labor, uml said
that this city in buildiug the bridges
at tin- time will be of great benefit to
those that need it most, aud he hoptd
that all good citizens would interest
themselves its securing vote for the
bridges for this reason if for no other.
Mr. Hoc lie showed that the interest

less in 1898 than in 1802; that the city
