THE MEETING RECENTLY HELD j
AT KRISCH HALL. !
Correspondent's View ol the
Scenes the Sltuntlon and
Editor n Antonio I.tuht:
Kach season has Its peculiar festive oc-
casions but the political plcnto It only
fashionable preceding an election. The
"Worklngman'a" picnic at Krlsch hall
was decidedly tho best of the season.
Some of the newspaper reporters persist
In calling It a "circus" but a "circus"
necessitates a ring and ringmaster and
a clown etc. and these at tributes
must be left to the performance yet to
come oil. No this was simply a picnic
At political picnics ns at other kinds
of picnics the Invited guests are sup
posed to bring their own fun along with
them and as In the Instance cited the
more earnest the actors tried to appear
the funnier It all appeared to the au-
dience. As n looker-on I will make a
few sketches from nature.
Krlsch hall began to look uneasy as
the hour approached and the sons of
toll moved In through the beer saloon
from the adjacent law shops and toddy
manufactories and It was evident that
It was to be a gay affair; for awhile the
legal sledge hammer and tinkling glass-
ware were to remain silent nnd the fes.
tho occasion would absorb alt the at-
tention of those simple minded artlzans.
A thrill of excitement ran through the
crowd when the brawny leader of all the
sons of toll reeking with honest sweat
from the labor's of hla law shop put his
rubicund face and bald head In at the
door leading to the saloon. It was evi
dent that the occasion was approaching
ripenesss ns little knots of hardy sons
of labor began to gather In shady cor-
ners and dlsAiss Copeland chicken pie

lagban chile con carne n la Sanches.
Tho hands of time nolnted to2 o'clock.
and a sallow-faced dark-eyed son of
toll In a broadcloth suit ascended the
platform and tapped the table as gently
as a maiden would have done with her
fan at the same time assuming a mclo-
dramatlo nlr In perfect keeping with the
sturdy character of the occasion; this
model laborer had evidently Just left

tnblo and rolling bis languid eves In the
direction of bis bang who would be so
skeptical as to doubt but that the cause
of labor was down trodden and the gaunt
nana oi Hunger was ai ns inroai.
But all things have an end. nnd the
"temporary" was succeeded by a "per-
manent" chairman. The "permanent"
was of a different stylo of beauty from
the "temporary" he was mild man-
nered blonde. He too had taken
the precaution to have bis head well
barbered and looked his prettiest ns be

bis little speech and looked at the audi-
ence with a look that was both
childlike and bland; In fact be
daubed on the paint of Indifference
and he smiled condescendingly upon his
audience as he flourishes his brush. He
was brisk and often tried to be witty
but before the nllalr was over we were
doomed to see bis feathers drop and a
shade of disappointment darken bis
Haphaelltio brow. Everything worked
against the grain and the laborer's var-
nisu was so tiiui tuai it cracaeti in sev-
A FLOOIt MANAdF.lt.
My pencil next caught on to a dlstln-
f uithed ex-candldate for Justice of the
'eace. His ban-Is were still stiff from
his eflort to reach the bench. He too
had patronized the tonsorlal artist and
his clothing was of the holiday order
and his nose came down and his mous-
tache went up until they met In loving
etnliraoe at every sentence uttered by
this swarthy son of toil and his ryes
flashed lire when be alluded to the
shovers of the legal Jack-planes and the

Another distinguished looking son of
labor of the blond type and billiard ball
style of lntectual development came
next upon my penoll point. He was a
blond nnd nls suit of stylish grey cloth
fitted him to a nicety: his waxed mous-
tache and ncqulllne nose made blm look
like the late Napoleon the III. and
when he proposed Belknap boss car pud-
ding as a panacea for all the wrongs and

writhing he Imitated the great Gambet-

It was towards the oloei of the cere-
monies after the great law pounder
Copeland had been selected to head tbe
storming hosts and If necessary to pull
down the Column Vendome and level
the Bastlle and divide all the wealth of
the banks among his "citizen" followers.
Tbe contest was over the seat of theMn-

act that a once prominent local politi-
cian was In the lead but did not have
tbe requisite majority for a nomination.

younger competitor nnd tried to secure

young law pounder and the old man left
the hall with a look on his face that
seemed to say : this Is my last political
picnic. There was a time when be
could dictate terms; alas times change.

A horrible and probably fatal a 'cldent
