rROCE?DIJ;S OF THE GENERAL
TIIK KKIAI. KWOW-SOTII'
Thu enormous immigration of for-
signers to the United States since 18S0,
toeether with the tact that most of tbe
Anarchlatf , Bociallste, Communists and
Klhllists are found among foreign
bom cltlaers, hive created much alarm
thrauchout the country and revived
tbe old spirit of Know-Notbingism,
There Is ne cause for this feeling, and
It ii unjust to the foreigners, who as a
claw are grod, law-abiding citizens, as
loyal to the government, to order, so
ciety and oar civilisation at the native
born Americans. Tbe latest statistics
how that duiing the last half century
13,000,000 of persons born in
other lands have become residents of
thif, and at the census of 1880, one
fourth of all tbe sdult males in tbe
United Slates were of foreign birth.
Tbe fore'gners outnumbered the native
mo'es in the great edits of New York,
Brooklyn, Chicago, St. Louis, Clnoln
naV, Ban Francisco, Cleveland, Buf
falo, Pittsburg, Detroit, Jersey City,
Newark and Milwaukee, or in thir
teen out of tbe twenty cities, which,
In 1880, bad oxer lOO.OCO inhabitants.
What would theee cities be without
the foreigners who bave added so
muoh to their population and pr
ductive weatb. Memphis has, per
haps, a larger population In propoi
tlontoiixe than any other Southern
city. Thete people are Industrious,
law-abiding, engagtd ' r7 oon
celvable avocation, and without them
Memphis would bs reductd to half iti
' proportion, for while the foreigners
do not constitute ball the population,
their business entei prise draws popu
lation to tbe city. While there is an
enormous inert e In foreign immi
gration and the worst clastes may
have Increaied the amorfnt of
ice, lawlessness- and, crime - in
the great oiiiei, the .Industrious
ant honest immigrants have add
ed . to our material prosperity,
our trade and commerce and grfat'y
helped to subdue and develop our vast
resources. It is a singular fact that
while tbe German-Americans are
almost puritanical in their observance
of law and order, many ol the Anarch
lata are Germans, and that while the
Irish are regarded ss a turbulent race
they are the chief reliance of the
' American people In putting down
riots. Moat of our foreign population
are Germans and Irish people and
thev a'slmilatelto our institutions
from the hour they reach our shore,
Meitber of these two nationalities have
' anything In sympathy with the refute
' of (erelgu monarchists, driven from
: their, na'lre country because their
preset! e wsa dangerous to the pub

cent people were for tbe presence

There are Ameiican outlaws refugee
" "' log In Euiope, ready for any crime, as
: the; hsvs nothing to lose and every
r thing to gain, and there are also msny
outlaws from Europe In tbe United
State. The fcralgnets who are en
steed In the active pursuits of life un
derstand that thia is a land of liberty
f-liberty regulated by law and if the
people of the United States will give
to oar foreign population the exclusive

archists In our midst, there will soon
be that kind of order which reigned
at Warsaw. This talk abont reviving
Know-Notbinglsm about calling a

Compulsory membership t an'
organ-'gation is desotiHni, a mockery
of the inalienable rights guaranteed
to the citizen. The labor unions have
mado imraenso headway by persua
sion and proving the advantages of
orgaoizat'on. Hut when they go fur
ther and put the curHe of excommu
nication upon all nn -unionists, they
become usurpers who would compel
freemen to obey their behests. Starv
ing men into do'ng what they do not
want to do, is as cruel as it is unjust
and is in keeping with that spirit of
intolerance and persecution which re
sorted to (he lasli, die thmb WWWs
and all, the instruments of torture to
forre men to join religious orgjiii.a-ti-ns
to which they were conscien
tiously opposed The ritrht to cam a
living ly honest work is i.ered and
nalienable. A man s labor is MS
own and he can dispose of it at any
price he pleases without let or hin
drance. Thera were in the United
States 17,400,000 persons engaged, in
the year 1880, in gainful occupations ;
that 1b, in earning a living by labor of
seme sort. There is now probably
not less than lU.OOO.OOO. Of
these 1,100,000 are classed, from the
nature of their occupation, being man
agers cr overseers, as employers
rather tban employed. But there
were 1,700.000 working in lactones,
003,000 cocupled on railways, and 14-
030,000 ot farmers, mechanics, arti
sans and general workers of every de
tcriptlon. Thm the numbsr of labir-
era proper in this country was, six
years ago, 10,00,000, and is now prob
ably ov.r 17,000 003. There are,
thmfore, not less thsn M,5CO,000
working people, at tbe least, who are
not memberj of tbe Knights of Labor.
The labor unions' demand that none
but union men shall be employed is
an open war upon tbore who have
conscientious scruples that prohibit
tbem from joining societies, organiza
tions or couihiaatioos of any tort. An
Irish laborer appeals to the unions for
permission to work. He aayi: "I
sympathize with your organitatlons,
but my church baa recently ful
mira'ed a bu'.l prohibiting me from
joining your unions, and now I am
forced to either renounce my religion
to get work or stsrve." Some men,
for reasons satisfactory to tbemitlvee,
are oppcsid to orKanizations. Bat
they are forced to itultity
their lnii"et onvictloos or be
branded as unclean, and suffer
for no tiiiiie save that of enter
taining an honest opinion. Before
boycotting 10,600,003 working people,
who are not members ol the unions,
the labor orginiwitlons should con
sider the injiiHtice they are doing a
largo majority of the laboring clases.
The same undeniable right which in
sists that a laborer may join a union,
if ho wishes, protect the man opposed
to organizations. This is a land of
liberty, and tho laborer has the right
to work when he iR w illing t ) do so
and his family is crying for bread.
Chief Arthur of tho Locomotive
Brotherhood, in hi recent speech nt
Hartford, Conn., said: "No man-lias
tho right to say to another, 'Thou
Hhalt' or 'Thou shall not, and in the
violation of this principle is where the
trouble lies among the workingmen
to-day. We h vc no business to say
that an employer shall employ or eh ill
not employ this man. A man has the
right to belong to any organization,
provided it is not contrary to the
law. We say no man has the
light to siy to another man that he
must not belong t an organization.
And. too. we bave no riiiht to go to
the companies and siy: "You mutt
not employ that man." We oppose
this way of doing things on principle.
Unless a man is a rascal yon have no
right ts tuperintendent or niniter mo-
chaoi to prevent htm from getting
employment elsewhere because he
