VOMEX'S UBOKASB HTRIHU.
The Coanmlaaioner ol the New York
Bureau ol Labor Statiitics bM pub
llshed n report, which is of extreme
Interest t this time cf strikes and
sTUufsles on the part ol working peo
ple. He givf b many interesting fac s
end fignrts. stid smong other things
diacueses the subject cf less being paid
to women tbsn to men itr the same
quality end quantity of work. When
the public buy an article from a store
they pay the same price whether the
artic'e was made by a man or a
woiran. W'by, then, should the man
ufacturer pay one price to the rxaa
who midi a portion ol the ai tides
aod a lower price to a woman who
made ant tVr portion? On common
senfO principle the thing la inexpli
cable and absurd. Yet the commie
aionei'a rejort kforms oa tint "as a
rul, women's wages are very much
lees than tl o?e of men, while, in some
kinds of aork, in which loth men
and women are employed, men can do
superior work, the difference in waaea
isouttf H rni'oBu'jle proportion to
the tuperior ty of the service." Evi
dently such a sit'i.tion is aj unreason
able a-sd stupid as It Is unjust and
condemuable. How ucq n
almost barbarous cmtim have come
Into existence? It looks like a rem
Bait c f antiquated custom, a mere fol
lowing cf the doings of past ager,
when woman nd her work were very
differently tbciiRht of to what they a-e
today. Ano'her very interesting por
tion of the report refers to the aubjact
of strikes, and there we find the fol
Ijwlng very importanfrstateineiif! "In
very rare irntances lire itiikea favored

that occurred in the State lait year

comralsaioner goes on to Bay that on

pearance ol depression, tome employ

tban that they cannot rT rxo:e;if

employers i "They lepulae the com
mittees ol the shop and the officers of
the unioa which is involved in the re
duction. They are responsible for the
trike which follows, for the evidence
' abundantly proves that in most taws
the men are willing and ready to ac
cept concession." Yet theae are the
men who call lor police to arrest
or soldiers to short down men who are
natural' indignant ogalnet such op
preesIoB and wrong. The report pro
ceeds to but Mat the employers com
monly speak of the tiaies unions with
coatemit, which remits in bad deling
being engecdired, and adds: "A lull
. explanation shoul I alwnya precede
reduction in waes, but seldom Is any
real or true explanation given. A no
tice is suddenly potttd up, without
warning, of a 10, 15 or 25 pr cent, re
duction, and in some ins'nncea no ap
ihuI Ib htard. This bareh tnatment
has, ol lU-tlf, occasioned great many
strikes, and ory serves to still lurther
embitter and intensify the hard feel
ings which exiat, and to daisy and
make the final settlement more diffi
cult." This is no one sided statoraent:
it tomes from an unbiased officer tl
the SUte who has every means ol as
cer:aialng the correitaess of the state
menta he makes and is responsible lor
them. The commiaaioaer finds ft geu'
eral conviction among both workmen
and employers that the remedy lor the
evils that exist mil t be fought in a
system of arbitratioa. Coming fiom
a source ao authoritative the
Sta'ementsJ ol the New York com
tnissioaer can neither be whistled
down nor denied. The situation ol
things between employers and em
ployed is becoming a danger t) the
public wtlfu-e. II It continue an in
port ant portioa of our population will
become habituated to riot and uisor
der, and effectual remedies should be
provided before what is now occa
aional shall become habitual, or law
and order mut suffer. The Ameri.
can people rebelled ajta'.nst oppression
Irom across the sea, and they will not
submit to it within their own borders,
and such oppression as this official
report reveals must be stopped.
The facta revealed in the New

workiugwomen cor the workingtnen
ought t) be subjected to oppression
any innre than parmr.t d to break the
law. The report also sjiowa the value
of such a State institution ai a Bureau
of Labor Statistics. The conflicting
assertions ot employers and employed
' leave in doubt facta which the public
ought to know for the conservation ol
law and order. Every S'ate Bhould
have such a bureau, and it the state of
things bitveen employer and em'
ployed existing in New York is found
tj be geatral, Congress will know in
what direction to legit lite. Therein
danger nhead in connection with the
labor question, and it will be wise to
remove evils in time that if neglected
rosy become overwhelming.
workingmen from the necessity ot be
coming tramps should be neglected.
The greater portioa ol these unlortu
nate perrons are mere laborers, men
without the knowledge ot any special
trade, and to elevate a good propor
tion of this class to the rank t( arti
sans, versed in the knowledge of some
trsde, wouLl be to reduce the host ol
tramp. Apprai4ly the beat way of
aooompliabing this result is by the
general eal4.ahaient of manual
schejls, where youth receive a train
ing expressly adapted to qualify them
lor learning any tiele to which they
may be put. Such a school tu just
been established in Toledo, O., by the
liberal beqaeht tf Mr. J. W. Bcs.t.
The course ol instruction there covers
three years; the pupils must be at
leaft fsarteen years of age. The ed
ucation given is equal jr divided be
tween meLtal S adies and 1 a-ning

arithmetic, geometry, applied mathe
matics, science, chemistry, mechanics,

such artisans tho "pauper labor of

a good cause, cherished and fostered
by a noble woman, who is now reaping
ber reward in the beautif il land, be
yond the enow and to d. It wr s
the intention of an orginizition
of f 03d and benevolent women that
Memphis, our good city of Memphis,
should have no street beggars, no
women and little children and invalid
husbands languishing in want in their
liit'e poverty-stricken homes. Bot
that all the piople (with money in
their pockets) should come forward
with an anneal subscription of a $2
membership. This would give us an
abundant treasnry fiom which to dit
pente good giit giiti from all the
piople! And a committee of Belf
sacrifi'iing ladies (whose duty it was
to visit in pers n the bom s of the
needy and the applicants for help)
were to dispenbe these gifts with
judgment and propriety; snd also
to Sfek emp'oyment or powt'oa for
bands now folded in betplermdlemee,
that hope nvght b revived, industry
encouraged and self sua aining powetB
established. And as we hae, through
suffering and much financial sacrifice,
become the thnneat city in the world,
we might also become tae happiest
city in the wo'ld, a light set upon the
illtop, the radiant glory ol the neio c
South. Hence, sprang into existence
the "Woman's Exchange," offspring
of this nssociaton, already a pub
lic benefit brimcing f jrth much truit.
And many thanks irom grate

old Appeal and all the Memphis prees
for giving it a vigorous lifi and an un
precedented auccess and run. We ask
the same mnuence, so jioioli.uj wmm

upon every man and weman oi large
