Everybody should attend the mass meeting to be held this evening, at Armory hall, under the auspices of Carpenters' unión, No. 85, at which the proposed nine-hour day will be discussed. That eloquent speaker, Chas. E. Miller, of Detroit, will handle the question in all its bearings. An invitation is especially extended to contractors and to our business men to attend this meeting. Good music will be a feature of the evening, and an enjoyable and profitable time may be expected. Doors open at half-past seven.
