lie resided in Baltimore, Mary
land, and had a large practice there,
as well as in tho Supreme Court of
the United States. "While in the
zenith of his fame and prosperity,
he became engaged lo a lady of
wealth and high social position in
Baltimore. She presented him with
a splendid pocket handkerchief, in
which she had artistically worked
his name, with her own fair hands.
Wirt attended a convivial pai ty in
Baltimore, and unfortunately and
unusually for him, partook a little
too freely of delicious beverages.
They so far impaired his equability
that lie fell on the pavement on his
way home, and slept there. While
in that position, the fair donor of
the handkerchief happened to pass
along, and upon looking down upon
Wirt, recognized him and the hand
kerchief she had given him. She
immediately caused him to be con
veyed to his home, and refused to
see him ever after that.
A man of wealth and respectable
character was indicted in Washing
ton City, upon a grave criminal
charge, and he went to Baltimore
(10 miles distant), to employ Wirt,
lie told Wirt that he would give him
two thousand dollars if he would
take his case, and that if he got him
clear, he would give him two thou
sand dollars more. Wirt took the
two thousand dollars, said ho would
do the best he could for him, and
hoped he would win, as he would be
glad to get the other two thousand
dollars. They mounted their horses

had done tho best he could, and
that it would ho unprofessional in

CAPITAL AHD LABOR.
KihtoU Buu.utin : Two of the
most vexatious questions at the pre
sent day aro undoubtedly those of
"Capital and Labor" and the
" Chinese Question." By giving
only a momentary glance at these
themes, it might seem strange what
bearing the joiio has on the other.
But on looking closer, it will be
noticed that botli arc allied mora or
less together. Let me explain as
near as possible.
The question of Capital and La
bor has not only interest for the
United Stales and Europe, but for
these Islands also. How often do
wu hear our men of capital abused,
especially the planters, and that by
men who lay claim to Ihc title of
workingnicn. 1 lay particular stress
on the name of workingman, for
can there be a more honorable vo
cation then the one whereby a per
son earn an honest living by
conscientiously performing his duties
whether by mental or manual, skilled
or unskilled labor? Capital and
Labor have lo go ceilainly hand in
hand, for ucilhc-rouc could got along
without the other. This fact is
generally acknowledged; but it must
also be acknowledged, that Capital
can dispense during a longer period
with Labor, while the latter can not
hold out for any length of time
against the former.
There is no doubt .that wo can
trace the direct cause of difficulties
between Capital and Labor to tlioso
European countries that have been,
and still arc ruled by despots and
tyrannical Governments. What can
be the moral and physical standard
of workingnicn in a country where
caste and aristocracy hold sway,
where a man as soon as ho inherits
a title, has nothing else to do but to
glory in his newly acquit ed position,
or to go on junketing trips, instead
of fulfilling his duties towards the
people, who support such dignitaries
by payment of heavy taxes? And
again 1 ask, what can we expect of
men who on all sides hear the con
temptuous expression : "Only a com
mon Workingman." Only common
Workingnicn, not to bo recognized,
owing to their vocation, except as
food for cannon.
Is it a wonder, that people in
those countries acquire socialistic or
nihilistic doctrines? or attempt to
obtain that liberty which an allwise
Providence has destined for them ?
Can we blame these people for try
ing to throw off their oppressions,
by taking united action to have their
rights and liberties recognized?
Certainly not! Every fair-minded
and justice-loving man's sympathies
will bo with these people, if they try
to obtain their cause by fair and just
But then again where there is too
much liberty, this privilege is liable
lo be abused. For example, in the
United States, where a workingman
is considered and treated on equal
terms with the rest of GO millions of
his fellow citizens. There it does
not infrequently happen, that some
of the wot king classes play the part
of Tyrants and Oppressors. Is there
anything more unjust than trying to
force employers to concede lo their
right or wrong demands, by placing
a boycott on tho business of such
employers, or worse still, by attempt
ting or indicting serious injury to
life and property, as is only too
often the case? No honest man, no
matter how strong his sympathies
aro for the labor element, can justify
such proceedings, whereby working
men only load themselves with well
No doubt much of this abuse of
liberty and infringement on personal
rights is due to the judicial system
in vogue in tlieseveial states. These
abuses would not be as llagrant, if
Judges, District Attorneys, and all
judicial ofllcials were either appoint
ed 13 the Govornors, and confirmed
by tho Legislatures, or elected by
tho people as at present. Either
way the incumbents to hold olllce
for life, or until removed by im
peachment. As a workingman has the indis
putable right to fix tho value of his
labor, just as much right has the
employer to accept or refuse ser
vices at such rates. The employer
must certainly know what expenses
his business allows him to make,
and the amount of wages he can
afford to pay. The workman is at
perfect liberty to accept or decline
work for tho wages as offered by the
employer; but 6hould the former
accept, then he ought to fulfil his
duties conscientiously, or else place
himself on the level of a thief, for
it is certainly just as much a case
of llicft by not doing that amount
or quality of work that has been
agreed on to be done in considera
tion of a mutually agreed on rate
of wages, as it is to pick another
It is only by fair and conscienti
ous conduct that workingnicn can
claim tho respect duo from employ
ers and others, while the latter also
ought to hold biicrcd the individual
rights and libcity of their employes.
An agreement to work is certainly
nothing else than a matter of bus
iness. One party agreeing to per
form the work in consideration of a
fixed sum, about just tho same us a
morchant expects to obtain his re
gular piico for delivering his goods;
while on the other hand tho employer
expects to havo tho work dono satis
factorily, just as u purchaser expects
to obtain the proper quautily and
quality of good in exchange for a
fixed amount of money.
Although I said that the relations
between employers and employes
are simply a matter of business, yet
tlieso words must not bo taken liter
ally; for tho relations ought not to
bo of business only, but rather of
sincere cordiality and mutual trust.
It should be any employes highest
aim lo have the sole interest of his
employer at heart, for by so doing,
ho will attend lo his own interests as
well. A inachino will furnish a cer
tain amount of work which is gken
it lo bo done; different however
ought to bo the results of such em
ployes as aro unwilling lo place
themselves on a level with a machine,
but who perform their duties ns they
ought to bo done, even if it should
require a little extra effort of them.
It is unpleasant to have to acknow
ledge that a large number of work
ingmen prefer to play the part of a
A mechanic, who had been work
ing for about a year at a monthly
salary of S100, exclusive of land
and house free of rent, played an
unenviable part lately. Without
any cause, he throw up nil of a sud
den, his position, hardly giving any
notice of his plans or giving his em
ployers a chance to obtain another
man lo Oil the place before he left.
Arguments were of no avail, and of
course the employers let him leave,
causing them probably a little tem
porary annoyance. Had this man
asked for a vacation hn would pro
bably have got it, while the very
desirable position would continue to
be his. But as lie intends to look
for big potatoes only, it will be more
probable that he will shortly be dig
ging for poolings, glad to get them.
This case is not a rare one. Can
wc blame such of tho members of
the Legislature as were slow in coin
ing to conclusive action concerning
proposed laws on the Chinese Ques
tion, in view of the actions of a class
of men like the one above. All the
planters, and public and business
men, I havo had an opportunity lo
couverso with on tho Chinese Ques
tion and other public affairs, in
variably agree that white labor
ought to be protected, and thnt le
gislation ought to be passed concern
ing the coolies. No doubt such
legislation would have been had long
ago, if our planters and business
men were assured that they could
repose complete confidence in the
workingmen. The future welfare of
these Islands depends a great deal
on the laboring classes; let them
placo themselves in their right posi
tion and study the principles of
equity, liberty and justice. The
planters and public and business
men will certainly prove their good
faith in return. In such case the
annoying questions of "Capital and
Labor" and the "Chinese Question"
will be forgotton and buried in obli
vion, at least as far as the Hawaiian
Islands aro concerned.
