Grand Opera House- Pittsburg:.
A very remarkable demonstration of
the strength of organized labor will be
made in Pittsburn throughout the week
commencing Monday, June 20th. The
details of the undertaking have been
carefully planned by the leaders of the
various labor organizations in Western
Pennsylvania. They embrace the giv
ing of two great entertainments eyery
day during that week, at the Grand
Opera House, at 2 and 8 P. M, Three
distinct objects will be attained for
organized labor by this gigantic under
taking. The first and most important
of these is the exhibition to the public
at large of the numerical strength of
organized labor. The plan is to have
the different organizations meet at a
stated place upon night set aside and
march to the Grand Opera House head
by brass bands. The seats will have
been reserved in advance so that eyery
man will have a seat assigned to him.
For instance, Monday will be "Miner's
Day." The female members of the
Miner's households aud the children
will attend the afternoon performance,
first having secured their seats in ad
vance. At night, the organized miners
will occupy all the seats in the house.
They will come from the different towns
by special trains and be met by brass
bands ar the Pittsburg depots, and
march to the Grand Opera House. It
jis expected that the principal store
I keepers will decorate their buildings
for "Labor Week," thus giving the city
a gala appearance.
All organized workmen are invited to
visit the headquarters at any time.
