The oiganized woikmen or Philadelphia today paid their tilhute to John Mitchell, pi evident of the United Mine AVoikers of Amei ica, and at the same tlmo .showed tholr sympathy In a substantial way for the stilklng anthracite mine workcis of Pennsylvania. The presence of tho minei ' chief was made the occasion of probably the gteutest demonstiatlon that oipaniptl l.iboi has eer held on Labor day. In the foienoon a paiade was held, under the auspices of the Central Labor union, In which neatly all the tiudcs of the city were lepie sented. "It Is estimated that moie than 30,000 men were in line. President Mitchell i ode at the head of the pio ecsslon, and his teccptlon alone- the loute of the paiade was enthusiastic. Twelve mineis, diessed in their gieusy oveialls and blouses, acted as an es cort.

If one of the most conspicuous of the cap italists of our countiv piopeily iepie sents the .entlrmnt and feeling of his as sociates, then we must take it foi Runted that they be!lee that God In His infinite wisdom has given Into theii control all the lesouicos of our countiy. I was taught to believe when a boy, that God loved all Ills people alike. I was taught to believe that He confened no moie powei or fiivniH upon one than upon nn iitht'i ; and notwithstanding the declaia tion of thu contiolltns of ti lists, am not piepaicd to abandon the teachings of my bojhood das.

Admiral Hig glnson did not delay after tho declar ation of hostilities today, to cut out woik for tho lackles and marines of his fleet, accomplishing In daylight, but under cover of fog, two things that General MacArthur's army had not an ticipated. These were the seizure of Martha's Vineyard and Block Island and tho captuio of the army's signal station at each place. Tonight he followed up his good work by a demonstration In force against the extreme western end of tho Hue of defending fortifications, but it cannot be determined until later If he actually attempted to force his vvav into Long Island sound or simply aimed to give his cievvs a little big gun prac tice. The navy's night attack was not ex pected at the western end of the line nulte so early In the game. The theory was held all day, after It was known that Higglnson had secured a base on the outlying Islands, that he would send his cruisers for a reconnalsance against both ends of the line und then swing his fleet Into the centre or around New port for a sharp, yet heavy attack there, manoeuvring quickly, and then, when things became most Interesting, sail to the westwaid and make his grand effort to foice his way Into Long Island sound. This would have been his night attack, for It seems almost certain that the day attack will be against Fort Rodman, the eastern point. Once tonight Newpoit got a scale, when a message came from Port Jud ith that marines weie being landed theie in the fog. All communication with that point was cut off. Then at 10 30 came an official bulletin announc ing the bombardment of Forts Mlchl and AVright, but when Port Judith sig nal station was again In touch with the central Intelligence bureau, It was explained that the signal men theie weie given a drill In saving equipment, on supposition that the enemy was making a landing. They cut out the telegraph and telephone wiles, picked up their equipment and made a recoid breaklng retreat, then returning le-es-tabllshed the station, doing a ci edit able piece of work. Outside of this In cident the routine of war duty along Narragnnsett bay was simply a good measuie of haid work nil day, and some veiy lively seaichlight woik to night. -- m - HAILROAD EMPLOYES MEET.
