On this day in 1892
Yesterday afternoon Mr Keir Hardie, MP, addressed a meeting of work people in the open air, near the Haworth railway station. In the evening he spoke at a large meeting in the Keighley Mechanics Institute... and was supported by the officials of the Keighley Division Labour Union, and the local Trades and Labour Council.

The Chairman defended the formation of an independent Labour Party. A resolution to this end and urging the desirability of direct Labour representation upon all our legislative and public administrated bodies.

Mr Keir Hardie M.P., who was loudly cheered, referring to the agricultural conference, admitted that the agricultural class needed protection, but it was protection against the exactions of landlordism and not against the imports of breadstuffs (applause) and this was true also of other forms of industry. He demanded of the State ample provision for the poor unfortunates in the "reserve army" of Labour who had a far greater claim upon the Treasury than the dusky natives of Uganda. Then there must be a reduction of long hours of labour and the abolition of piece- work. The development of the free trade spirit in America portended the early breaking up here of system of private ownership of land and the means of production, and accentuated the need for better organisation among the forces of labour. The resolution was heartily adopted.
