Transcript 118 ADDRESS OF ALBEKT K. PARSONS, General Parsons—Yes, the 9th of October. Mr. Parsons—Yes. It is concerning this vvorkingmen's movement: " The strong probability of Mr. George's election in New York has also a meaning for the so-called capitalistic class of this community. A brief summary of the inception and progress of the Anarchists' movement, which terminated at the Haymarket on the 4th of May last, will make this clear. "Following the great railroad strikes of 1877 came the failures of savings banks; the unpunished defalcations of the trustees of the poor, and the enormous immigration, increasing competition for work and bringing with it a large element of the victims of Bismarck and of Bismarck's servilitv, soured with life and ready for desperate deeds. t'nder such inauspicious circumstances workingmen's parties were formed and tickets put in the field; some were captured, others disorganized, some fell into the hands of the Socialists, who found time to form a party which elected Frank Stanberto the city council from the fourteenth ward." I was a prominent actor, your honor, in all of this matter that has been related here in the Newt. "Stauber was subsequently re-enforced by the election of Alpeter in the sixth ward and another one in the fourteenth and Chris Mayer in the fit- teenth, while the Socialistic labor candidates for the fifth and seventh wards were only defeated by a small majority. Alpeter and Stauber and bis colleagues refused all overtures from the ring which then as now controlled these politics They were proo alike against bribery and intimidation and the party which they faithfully and honorably represented was becoming powerful and troublesome as an opponent to the ring. At the city election following a fla- ZZ> ■ > « T 'al °Vr WaB PerPetrate<' »> <»- sixth *ard by 'Cab bage hyan, through which Alpeter was defrauded of a seat, and the offender was sheltered from punishment, his case being dismissed wi hont a hearing in some m.nnei.. This was followed the next year by tbe breaking open oM e box in he second precmct of the fourteenth ward and the fraud and periurv by which Stauber was kept out of his seat for twenty three month, fraud a.S perjury which were condoned by the courts. It waf upon the "a , Tv an« at the same election that Cnllerton succeeded by a suspicion, u!it(f " ot over twenty votes over a Socialist by the name of Ban,,Z% d e comS practically denied the contestant an opportunity to present his rig.s One of these frauds was perpetrated in the inters nf »i. i> M e other in the interest of the Democrat ThTTeco H„ ^M,b,l<*n **«>• |* it is no small wonder that the party was dr ven " tZma ST with the rascals of both the other parties."
