CHICAGO, III., May 1.— The greatest labor demonstration erer witnessed in Chicago closed its ranks at 12:30 o'clock this afternoon and in solid lines nearly 35,000 men marched to the notes cf music furnished by numerous bunds. At the hour named the procession started from Mouroe and Peoria streets and marched east. The Uuited Brotherhood of Carpenters headed tue procession, the Carpeuters' Union No. 1 and the Amalgamated Carpenters' and Joiners' lullowed. These, witb Knights of Labor carpeuter assemblies, formed a line of about 5,000 carpenters. Following these cauie the United Order of Airerican Bricklayers aud Btouumasons—about 3,000. Tnen in order named came Coal Unloaders, Cloa.kmub.ers, Woodworkers Duiou. Iiaiherc, Turner's Organizations, about 1,-200strong; Metal Cornice Makers, Iron Moulders, Metnl AVorkers, Typographical Uuiou, Wood Carvers aud Turners, Bohemian Wood Machine Workers, N. K.. Fairbanks Employes, Paper Hangers, Cloak and Pant's Makers. 1 ail- ore, German Typographical Union, Boiler Makers, (ias Fitters, Box Makers, Sawyers, Harness Makers, aud many others. Banners, flags aud mottoes were plentifully display ed and the sentiments expressed on the mottoes caused tremendous cheers from the throngs of spectators that crowded the Hue of march. Everything moved smoothly aud not the slightest disturbance or wrangle occurred. The procession was easily four miles long, aud uio=t of the paradars marched (our abreast and crowded close together. iOET WAYNE, Ind., May 1 —All tue carpenters in this city went on a .strike this morning for a nine-hour ilay and 25 cents per hour as the lowest rate. A few of the bosses granted the demands of the men ouringthe day and their employes returned to work. A conference will be held between the strikers and the bo.«se8 and there is every prospect of an amicable settlement of the difficulty. • , The stone cutters, who have been working ten hours, were granted eight hours this morning and their wages remain the same as before.. HEW LONDON, Conn., May 1.— Three mouths ago the prauite manufacturers at Millstone Point, ISian- tic, Groton and New London were notified by tueir employes that on May 1 they would demand nine hours as a day's work witb no reduction in wages. The manufacturers refusing to comply, 250 granite cutters struck to-'lay. CHICAGO. May 1.—The strength expected from the stock yards did not materialize. Instead of 10,000 men as expected, less than 2.000 appeared in line. After parading over the line of march the procession moved to the lake front park, where the announcement that Congressman Lawler, Judge Tuthill, Judge Prendergrast and others would tpeak had drawn an immense crowd There were fully 35,000 people on the ground in addition to those that had takne part in the parade. Owing to some misunderstanding, no speakers' stand had been erected in the park and the carriages bearing the speakers were therefore driven to different places in the park, and from them the crowd was artdiessed. The orators spoke on the labor question, and from the applause that followed their remarks, it -was evident the multitude was well pleased. Up to a late hour this afternoon there had been no trouble at the stock yards. Several of the houses were closed to allow the men to take part m the parade. The police on doty there did not anticipate any trouble. ed the parade to stop, but the paraders defied them. The municipal guards then charged upon the mob with bayonets, wounding many iu the front ranks. The crowd then broke. A large number of arrests were made. 8:20 p. ui.—The paraders arrested will be released at midnight, they having been charged simply with refusing to move on. BERLIN, May 1.—As a Socialist demonstration, to-day's movement was a complete fiasco. Those who turned out were chiefly young men who were bent on nothing more serious than having a holiday, and there was no meeting or other mani fectation of any consequence. The military were ordered oat nominally for field exercise aud the police were instructed to ignore the working men as far as possible and only to interfere in case any of the men at work were threatened or molested. VIENNA, May 1.— The Prater is, occupied by troops but they are not likely to be summoned to duty. The streets are filled with people, but the crowds are orderly. A riot occurred at P.-osnitz, this afternoon growing out of an attempt on the part of workingmen to liberate some of their comrades who had been imprisoned. A mob of 4,000 made a. rush on the prison with the intention of settinir the inmates free, but they were met by a strong body of troops and re plilsed. A few of the rioters were hurt. At Trieste, Pola and Cracow there was only a slight observance of the day by workingmen, and everything was quiet. MADRID, May 1.—Thousands of workmen assembled in the Bneu Retire gardens to day and appointed delegates to present a petition to the Cortes for an eight hour law. The delegates were conditionally received by Senor Martinez, president of the chamber of deputies. The slreecsjware everywhere guarded by military and police. VIENNA, May 1.—Sixty workingmen's meetings were held to-day at iill of which resolutions favoring an eight hour day were adopted. There lias been no disorder in any quarter of the citv. Reports from all parts of the empire show that the utmost tranqniiity prevails. BERLIS, May 1.—Ten . thousand men marched in procession to day. There was not the slightest:signs of disorder. ROME, May 1.—A few insignificant riots occurred bere to-day, owing more to the crowded condition of the streets than to any other cause. The city is quiet to-night. LOXDOJT, May r— The terrible May dav bogie has come and gone, auTl a very ineisrnific«.nt harmless fellow has shown himself to be. What little disorder there has been on the continent to-day,'where it. was predicted and greatly feared blood would now has been confined to street fights and brawls of proportions; far beneath the character of a riot, "and the Socialists and the blood thirsty Anarchists are displaying a degree of meekness that causes the Iamb to appear ferocious and positively dangerous by contrast. In London the street displays of the boasted strength and uncompromising determination of the workmen were positively ridiculous in their meagreness. The parades were not directed by either the trades unionsts or the socialists and really seemed to have no definite object. The socialists and trades organizations, however, declare that thev are reserving their forces for Sunday when they will give an example "of thei- power that will cause society to tremble.
