LABOR DAY PARADE
A MONSTER AFFAIR
Estimated That Fully Fifteen Thousand Men Were
in the Column That Moved Through
' the City Streets.
AFTERNOON EXCURSION TO LAKE ARIEL
THE PARADE ON
Thousands nrnl thousands of wnge
carners nppcnrcd In the ctty streets
parly yesterday morniiij; to participate
In the Labor Day celebration which
they niado the Rreatest, largest and
most Imposing spectacle of orgunized
labor ever seen In Scranton.
The United Mine Workers necessar
ily had the greatest number of men In
line, but every other conceivable
branch of labor was also well repre
sented. It Is estimated that tit least fifteen
thousand men remained In lino
throughout the entire line of march.
Grand Marshal Hugh Fraync and staff
and the committees in charge of the
day met early in the morning at the
Central Labor union headquarters, and
reports then made to them vindicated
that there would be over twenty thous
and marchers in line. Many of those
who started dropped out, however, and
when the parade arrived at the Erie
station the number of men was ap
proximately as given above.
THE BIG PARADE.
The procession was started promptly
nt 9 o'clock, as had been arranged.
There was not a particle of unnecessary
delay, to the credit of Marshal Fraync
and the members of his staff be It said.
The city streets were crowded, as the
parade proceeded along the main
thoroughfares, and the marchers were
universally greeted with applause for
the excellent appearance they made,
and the martial, sprightly bearing they
maintained, in spite of the torrid blaze
of the sun.
Superintendent of Police Day had
well attended to the policing of the
city, and the great crowds were han
dled easily and unostentatiously by a
large force of patrolmen, with the re
sult that there was absence of the
least signs of disorder or excitement.
The parade was headed by Mounted
Officers Burke and Perry. Behind them
rode Grand Marshal Hugh Fraync, re
splendent In a Rough Rider hat, with
the gold cord emblematic of his leader
.shlp of the parade. With him were the
members of his staff, all mounted.
Conspicuous among the latter were
Chief of Staff George H. Gothler and
Secretary 13. C. Patterson, of the Cen
tral Labor union. The members of the
committee and sub-committee In
charge followed on Joot, and next came
the delegates to the Central Labor
Close behind them was driven a car
riage in which were seated District
President Thomas D. NIcholls, Secretary-Treasurer
John T. Dempsey and
Board Member Healey, of the United
Mine Workers of America, and John
H. Devlne, of the Clerks' union, presi
dent of the Central Labor union.
The first division of the parade con
sisted entirely of mine workers, and
was led by Commander Thomas Tier
ney and Lawrence's band. The North
Scranton locals led the van. An ex
ceptionally large number of men had
been sent down, and to the watching
crowds it seemed as though the long
line of earnest, determined looking men
was almost unending. They were fol
lowed by the West Scranton, Pino
Brook, Dunmore, Minooka and Taylor
locals. Numerous printed signs, and
cartooning banners were carried by
human beings, and spared the woman
cast to them in the arena. It is astonish
ing how little sympathy women have
for women. In the borne the mistress
sees the maid with the signs of suffering
she recognizes so well, but she does not
lighten the sick girl's load by a touch of
her finger. In the store the forewoman
sees the pallor and exhaustion which
mark womanly weakness, but allows
nothing for them. It is work or quit.
Doctor Pierce's Favorite Prescription
makes weak women strong aud sick
women well, by curing the womanly
diseases which undermine the health
and sap the strength,' "Favorite Pre
scription" establishes regularity, dries
weakening drains, heals inflammation
and ulceration, and cures female weak
ness. "When I first commenced win? Dr. Pierce's
medicines," writes Mri. George A. Htroug, of
Gautcvoort, Saratoga Co., N, V. I was suffer
ing from female weakness, a disagreeable drain,
beariug-down paius, weak aud tired feeling all
Hie time. 1 dragged around in that way for
two years, then Ibegau taking your medicine.
After taking the first bottle J began to feet
better. I took four botles of Dr. Pierce's Favor
ite Prescription, two of ' Golden Medical Dis
covery,1 one vial of the Pleasant Pellets,1 also
used oue bottle of Dr. Sage's ratarrh Remedy,
Now I feel like a new person. I can't tbsnk you
cuougii for your kind advice and the good your
medicine lias douc me."
"Favorite Prescription" makes weak
women 6trong, sick women well. Ac
cept no substitute for the medicine which
works wonders for weak women.
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant, Pellets are the
most desirable laxative for delicate
fr Va"" I
the men', expressing their Intention and
hopes of winning the strike, and in
many instances directing ridicule tit the
operators. President Baer, of the Phil
adelphia and Rending railroad, came In
for more than his share of sarcastic
allusions. "Boer, the man with the
divine authority nit," one banner dis
gustedly remarked, and close to this
appeared the legend in bold letters,
"Out for sixteen weeks, good for six
teen more." Another standard bore
the strange device, to quote Exelslor,
of a large bear with a conspicuous $
sign on his hide, dancing meekly nt
the order of a brawny miner, arm'cd
with a pole. "We'll tame him yet" was
the significant device under the pic
"Baer can't afford to give the miners
a 10 per cent. Increase, but the pole
cats can get J3 a day, and free beer
and cigars from him" was a backhand
ed slap at the Reading officials and at
non-union workmen, and another drive
at the railroad president was a sneer
ing banner, which announced that
"President Baer Is a poor trustee."
Several mine workers sat In one car
riage, carrying a large excellent like
ness of President John Mitchell,,
wreathed In flowers, and another pic
ture of Ihe young president was dis
played by a body of breaker boys, who
had it labelled, "Mitchell, the slateplck
ers' friend." A large number of wives
of Green Ridge miners drove along
with their local, In a large carriage,
and displayed banners announcing "We
don't expect luxury, but we want a
comfortable living." Another stand-
)ard announced that they were "the
wives of the white slaves, the United
Mine Workers of America." Another
stylish-looking three-seater accompan
ied one of the locals and carried a large
number of young women, all attired In
white. "We'll stand by our leader to
the finish," and "In uniqn there Is
strength," were two other standards
which served to express the sentiments
of the marching strikers.
IN THE SECOND DIVISION,
The Second division, under Com
mander Peter F. Holton, of the paint
ers, was headed by the International
Correspondence Schools band, Immedi
ately behind which marched the Sheet
Metal Workers' union, the members of
which presented about as neat and at
tractive an appearance as any men In
line. They were all attired In white
shirtwaists, white hats, white gloves
and dark trousers, and an original
wrinkle Introduced by them consisted
of a small tin umbrella carried by each
man. The metal blazed in the sun, like
the metal shields of warriors in ,ve an
cient days, and the doughty 3hirt
waisted unionites could bo seen blocks
off, by the rays of light shooting from
The Carpenters and Joiners and
Plumbers' union followed the sheet
metal workers, and the electrical work
ers wore close behind the latter. Each
member of the latter carried q cane
and wore a white hat. The Sons of
Veterans' band furnished the march
music for this part of the parade.
Painters' Local, No. SIR, which was
next In line, presented a cool, contented
appearance, each man wearing a white
duck suit and wearing a white outing
hat. Every man carried a yard-stick.
The structural iron workers, who
marched to the lively music of another
drum corps, looked as though every
man was ready to clamber up an Iron
pier and got to work immediately. A
uniform working suit had been adopted
by tho union, and every man appeured
clad in brown jeans, blue shirt und a
The stonecutters had a large number
of men In line, and so did th'e brewery
workers, who were probably the most
comfortably fixed collection of workers
In line. They were headed by a young
man on horseback, clad in a semi
Zouave uniform, nnd the main body
followed in brewery wagons, hand
somely transformed by greens and
(lowers Into miniature beer gardens,
In fact, some of the other workers, who
had to swelter along In the heat, envi
ously .declared that the carriages had
been transformed Into veritable brer
gardens, and there was not tho slight
est detail lucking to complete the illu
sion. Two big brewery workers, at
tired In German comedian make-ups,
stood In the wagons, grimacing nt each
other and giving reullstlo Illustrations
of tho way the malted beverage Is con
sumed, CARRIED JAPANESE PARASOLS.
Tho clgurmakers nnd clerks followed
tho brewers, all of the clgurmakers
currying Japanese parasols, Tho Bak
ers' union rodo along comfortably In
open carriages. They were uttlred In
white and legends announced, "We'-nio
the peoplo who bundle the doui'h,"
while huge pretzels hung from the
sides of the carrlago served us em
blems of their trade,
A small group of uniformed employes
of the Scrunton Rullway company
were roundly cheered as they marched
sturdily behind the slothful bakers, and
tho rear of the division was brought
up by the team drivers, each man
driving his own team.
The third division, which was In
charge of P. J, Shea, of the Scranton
railway employes, wag led by a dashing
looking cavalcade of horsemen, wear
ing black cap3 and blue flannel shirts.
Tho white horseshoe embroidered on
each man's shirt served to announce
that these men composed tthe horse-
Bhocrs' union. They rode their horses
gracefully and no body of silk-clad
cavaliers could have won more ap
plause than did the little knot of burly
farriers. Commander It, A. Mnloncy, of
tho llorse-shoers, ,was ti conspicuous
figure. Electrlu City lodge of the
Machinists, nnd the Iron Moulders
were next in line, the latter chtd In
tho white shlrtwnhUfl and duck trous
ers, which were so popular nmong
ninny of tho pnrnders. Fully forty
members of the Typographical union
were In this division, and led by the
veteran printer, Thomas Lovers, for
merly of The Tribune, presented ns
dapper an appearance us any union
represented In line. i
The Iron Moulders brought up the
rear, and then came a long procession
of laundry workers, driving along In
their firms' wagons. A number of bak
ery wagons were also conspicuous, and
various miscellaneous trades were like
wise represented In the tall end of this
division.' The route of the parade was
Wyoming to Linden, to Washington,
to Spruce, to Franklin, to Lackawanna,
to Adams, to Gibson, to Washington, to
The first division formed on Adams
avenue, right resting on Wyoming ave
nue, facing Linden street; second divi
sion formed on Washington avenue,

division formed on Penn avenue, north
of Linden street, right resting on Lin

and the fourth division formed on
Franklin avenue, north of Linden

facing Pcnn avenue.
AT LAKE ARIEL.
The excursion to Lake Ariel, under
the auspices of the Central Labor
union, was -one of tho largest gather
ings of people that has visited this
popular resort' during the season.
Owing to the morning rJarade, not
very many people wont out on tho early
morning trains, but the afternoon
crowd filled every available seat in the
train leaving at 1.35 o'clock. A large
number were compelled to Bland dur
ing the journey.
No fixed programme was entered Into
on tho grounds, the crowd giving way
to recreation, boating, dancing, etc.
The singing contests, which were ad
vertised, had to be abandoned, owing
to the illness of Prof. Hemberger, who
was to have been adjudicator and who
intended securing the German societies
Delegations from every union repre
sented in the parade were on the
grounds, some of them wearing their
parade suis. All of the prominent
local labor Neaders were also there,
among whom were noticed: District
President T. D. Nichols and Secretary
Dempsey, of the mine workers: Will
lam Corless, president of Typographical
union, No. 112; George Gothier, of the
cigarmakers; E. C. Patterson, of the
carpenters; J. F. Hummes, of the stone
cutters; Organizer Hugh Fraync; P. F.
Holton, of the painters; P. J. Shea, of
the street car men; John Devlne, of the
clerks; George Kotzwlnkle, Daniel Laf
ferty, of the electricians; Patrick Buck
ley, and a score of others.
Many prominent business and profes
sional men were also there, interming
ling with the crowd. During the after
noon the Lawronco band gave a con
cert In the grove, and the Star orchestra
furnished music for dancing. The Paint
ers and Tinners played a five-Inning
game of base ball, and the former won
out by the score of 0-2.
The features of the game were home
run drives by Kurtz and Gomer Davis,
the latter sending in two runs ahead of
him. The players on both teams were
MEMBERS OF TEAMS.

Three trains were required to bring
the excursionists back to the city, leav
ing at 6.25, 8 and 9 p. m. Nothing oc
curred to mar the pleasure of the day,
and all who attended the excursion
were loud in their praise of tho Cen
tral Labor union us entertainers.
NOTES OF THE DAY.
Grand Marshal Frayno was consld'
erably chagrined by the fact that a
good deal of confusion was caused and
the formation of the parade temporarily
broken by a coal ear filled with an
thracite gems, which had been brought
along by one of the Mine Workers'
locals. It proved too heavy to be prop
erly managed, and as all efforts to
move It were unavailing, It would have
delayed the parade indefinitely had not
Marshal Frayne ordered that the con
centrated energies of a large number
of men bo expended In sldo-tracklng
It and leaving It out of the formation
An Interesting float showed the way
that tho Rockmen attend to their du
ties In tho mines. A number of rock
men, wearing yellow rubber coats and
tiousers, were seen on a wagon, two of
tho men swinging sledges, and another
holding a drill. Another wagon con
tained a number of miners, Illustrating
tho work of drilling u hole through a
big lump of coal.
Tho Oxford locul attracted much at
tention during tho parado by tho ban
ners carried by Its members. "Craw
ford cannot bluff us," stated one, and
"Be merry while tho strike prolongs
and we will win," was Inscribed upon
One of the most noticeable floats In
the parade was that on which was rep
resented u man pinned against the
stump of n treo by a big, vicious-looking
bear. Behind the nnlmul was a
man with a pick, who threatened tho
anlmnl's life, whllo In tho rear of the
group sat a man representing J. Pler
pont Morgan, drinking from a bottle of
Hunter's best. The bear was labelled
"By dlvlno right," another direct slap
at President Baer,
A rather unique feature of the par
ade was supplied by Local 107S, which
was headed by John Myers, of Bellevue
street, who carried two Infunts, labelled
"Mother Jones' union lunch,"
A parody on the coal and Iron police
wns supplied by the Taylor local. A
line of young boys wore big tin stars
and curried lloberts and air-guns. A
boy wns carried on a stretcher behind
them, In representation of a mine acci
dent, Tho Gold Medal brand of overalls
was represented In the parade by a
float containing a number of White's
employes, and liberally covered with
ornately draped shirts and overalls.
The red flyer automobile of Arthur J.
Cuntleld, of the firm of Catling & Can-
field, ran along with the parade, and
fully two thousand Louis Mann cigars
were distributed among the marching
workers by Canfleld and Otto Rice, one
of tho distributing agents for the cigar
Tho last of tho 'three return trains
from Lake Ariel arrived nbout 10.15
o'clock last night. Organlr.er Hugh
Frayne wns among those who stayed
at the lake until the last man hud
boarded the train, 'and was seen' shortly
Jitter his return by a Tribune man.
"Hughle's" face was beaming with
pride nt the splendid results of the day,
and happily declared that there had
not been a single accident to mar the
general enjoyment nt the lake.
Coal Our Leading Mineral.
According to tho annual report of the
United States geological survey there
are fifty-six minerals, metallic and non
metallic, whose existence forms the
bancs of regular Industries In this coun
try. As to tho value of these various
products In 1901 coal Is an easy leader,
with $348,700,000 to Its credit; pig Iron
follows with a value of $243,174,000; cop
per comes next with un outmil last
year worth $80,618,000; and gold and sil
ver occupy fourth and fifth place, re
spectively, tho former's value being
$S0.218,000, the hitter's (commercial
In the next group as to value of tho
1901 output are lead, stone, natural gtis
and petroleum tho latter leading ut
$80,400,000. Mineral waters were valued
at nearly $8,000,000. And near the bot
tom of the long list are asbestos, valued
at $13,500, nnd rutilo at $5,719.
The total value of the whole mineral
output was $1,002,224,380.
It will be noted that the coal values
are more than double those of gold and
silver combined, and of them tho an
thracite product is set down as worth
$112,504,000 In 1901. That Is about ono
nlnth of the value of tho entire min
eral production of tho United States,
and tho Industry Is confined within one
state Pennsylvania. These Inst two
facts give emphasis to tho real signifi
cance of the anthracite strike an effort
by unionism to control in its own way
a business Involving one-ninth of tho
value of tho mineral production of the
Is it any wonder that the mine own
ers want the full control of their prop
erty? Travel Very Heavy.
Travel on the Lackawanna Is heavier
now than it ever was. No. 6, the after
noon flyer, had nine ears from Blng
hamton yesterday afternoon, nnd these
were so crowded that it was necessary
to send an extra No. 6 from Scranton
to New York.
The five cars on the extra were com
fortably filled before leaving Scranton.

COLES FOB SEPTEMBER.
From Storms and Signs.
How swiftly the seasons come and go.
Again the wheel of Time has brousht to
us tho month of September. There1 Is a
glory resting upon tho golden fields of
falling grain. All animated creation is
full of praise and joy, and tho song of tho
reaper falls on tho air, while the bravo
sons of toll take up tho grateful refrain,
and tho husbandman no longer turns his
face to the clouds or tho sunshine In hope
or expectancy, for the reaper has over
taken him that soweth. On the 23d tho
sun enters sign Libra and Autumn then
begins and it finds us at out Autumnal
Tho planets Venus, Neptuno nnd Old
Rod Warrior Mars, will bo on tho Low
Ebb side of tho world, whllo the ureat
planets, Uranus, Saturn, Jupiter and tho
meddlesome Meicury, whose influence is
to causio melancholy, trickery, etc., will
bo on the High Flood side.
Old Mother Earth is passing through
the "House of Kindred," opposed by tho
"Houso of Religion"; although there will
be somo very exciting beetles and experi
ences this month, there aro bright pios
pects ahead which may cause a more
congenial feeling between capital and la
bor. Disease epidemic will become very pre
valent and nil those troubled with heart
disease should guaid themselves well dur
ing tho Low Ebb days, as many sudden
deaths will occur this mouth.
As a general rule, September weather
is very unsettled. Tho most destructive
storms will occur at or near tho Moon'a
pussago over tho Equator on tho 2d aud
17th. (Seo Storms and Signs Calendar).
Tho Middle and KuHtern states will bo
visited by high gales, cloudbursts and
hall. The Western and Southern states
will como In for their shuro of destructive
storms, whllo In tho northwest frost und
snow will play havoc,
Earthquako shocks will bo folt in Amer
ica ns well as tho Old Country. Watch
out for tidal waves and equltoil.il cy
clones that will extend alone tho sou
There will bo many beautiful sunsot

Tho best days to sow wheat for grain
will bo Tuesday, tho 10th, and Thursday,
