BOTI'OITINU AM A HEM1DI,
The labor unions sra not agreed as
to the policy of boycotting aa a rem
edy. Kdward King of New York, a
pronifn nt luador of tbo Kcighti of
Labor, asys that boyco'.ting his tha
ainction of Ilia Bible, and to prove
this refeig to Mat hew xviil, 15-17, as foi
lows: "Moreover, if thy brother shn'l
treapwa against thee, go and tell him
hie fault betaeen him and tbes alone.
If he bear thee, thou but gained thy
brother; but if bo will net bear theo,
then take with tbee oae cr two more,
that in the mouths of many every word
may be established: atd if to shall
neglect to hea', then tell it to the
churob, aod if bo negloct to beariti
then let him bs unto thee aa a hea'hen
and a publican." On the other hand,
T. V. l'owdetly.a lrglcal, clear headed,
philotophicil atattaman, is opposed to
boycotting. In hiireoent secret circu
lar, ai fnll of wladora ai aa egg is of
meat, he says: "In fact, our order baa
been used ai a tall for a hundred dif
ferent kites, and in future must soar
aloft frse from all of them. I hate the
word boycott, I was boycotted ten
years ago, and cculd nut get work at
my trade for tucntbs. It is a bad
practice. It haa boen banded to ns
by tbe capitalltta." As elated by Mr,
l'owderly, boycotting waa invented by
capitalize and la daily practiced by
them, The railroid capitalists hold
their hands up in bo'y horror at tbe
infamy cf tie boycott, but tbey form
8sociftMiiis to control traffic, regu'ato
rates, aitl t j t ojcrtt other roada that
rtfutio to ' join their combina
tion. The rail rials are contin
ually bnycjtting each other. They
have taught their employee the
art of boycotting and consider it a
grent outrage for tha laboring ('lueses
to ml opt tlnir own methoda. What la
strife for the go jbo should bs satico
for the pander. But the sycophant
who raidor to the money power will
commend ae something murvelotii
smart and proper boycotting when re-
aoitedto by csp;trtli8iH, but. a ciime
when practiced by tho laho: irg clafaes.
In every f-tate in the Uniou the rail
road have practiced bovcottirg.
Wlit:u a railroad aats up for itaelf,
avows it determination to manage its
affairs in ita own way, declines to join
tho syndicate which has pooled its
hsiie, the Knights of Capital atigma
tizas the outsider aaa "scab" and by a
remorseless eys'em of boycot
ting destroys tha lival road.
Whin a railroad dares to man-
igs its own stlalra in tta own
way, the outer is given, cot by the
Powderlies, the Arthurs, the Ironies,
but by the llcx'ei and tho Goulds, to
atrike, to boycott the refrtetory com
petitor, and straightway tho organixed
captta'iats imue tbe order that freight
mutt be diverted from tho "scab,"
no tickets sold over the doomed road,
rates to all connecting points on its
line cut, its terminals blocked, ita
busiuess strangled, until ita stock
holder are ruined by outlawry and
Voycottlng. The capitalists chuckle
with joy end delight as thry see their
victim forcei into bankruptcy through
tie oparatlona of tbelr well-organized
eystem of bo)cctting. But when the
Knights of Labor undertake to prac
tice the methods adopted by the
cap'talisls to control trallic and
compel the eubmlss'oi of all competi
tion, tbo railroad boycotters are hor
rified at the lawless methods of the
labor boycottere. The capitalists have
no nee for their own medicine. Tbey
whine and bowl whin hoisted on
their own petard.

To tha Editors of tha Appaal:
It surprisfg and pains us to read the
animadversions of our home press on
the judicial course of our criminal
judge, especially in tho Emma Nor
man case. Tne head and front of his
offending seems to be that after giving
the cold and clear cut law he quoted
a verse of appropriate poetry, embody
ing the noblest sentiment of human
nature ; and that he administers the
law without tho tyranny that charac
ter zed some of his predecessors. And
yet, e converto, he is censured for ap
po nting an extra - gurd for the
protection of a citizen threat
ened and hounded by a band
of assassins. There is certainly some
ground of charging this as extraju
dicial. But how docs this comport
with the other charge of undue levity?
Thus:
"He ahall and he shan't,
lfo will and ha won't,
If he doe he'll b damned.
And he'll be damned it he don t.
It is a great plensura to us, how
ever, to read tlio high encomiums
passed moon his judicial edmin stra
tion by the press of our sister Stntes.
Certes, I know of more than one Dem
ocrat true as ever fought on field or
forum nnder Federal or Confederate
Hag. that will vote for him again,
. espite all conventional nominations,
us the best criminal judge we have
ever had to honor our jud'i inl ermine.
