Two Open Meeting Addressed tn An
Impressive, FOrclblo Manner The
Principles of the Order Defined and
Driven Into Numerous Hearts.
Trof. Dan Frasor Tomson, master work
man of tho Stftto Assembly of ArknnsaH,
and general lecturer of tho order of
Knighta- of Enbor, adJrossod an "open
meeting" under the auspices of D. A. 1:13,
nt thu Fireman's Hall Saturday night, and
a special meeting of tho order last nij;ht.
Jlr. Touison's remark were impressive,

Tho speaker was Introduced by Mr.
Bolton Smith, D. M. V, 1). A. 133, and
Mr. Chairman, Ladies nnd Gentlemen:
I feel complimented at the presence of tho
ladies in tho audience tonight; thu order
which 1 have tho honor to represent feels
complimented at their prcsenco in its
thousands of local assemblies in this coun
try and in Kuroupo. As an order wo re
alize) the fact that tho laborer of tho world
is being degraded by society on account
of his culliux and disposition 'to obey trio
divine command and pauperized under
our systems, but that woman is discrimi
nated against, us a worker, because slio is
a woman; and wo demand of society that
no one shall be held responsible an d dis
criminated against on account oi iter sex
or nationality, or anything else over which
wcy nave no control. e appreciate the
fact that that tho linger of woman is seen
in the accomplishment of ull great reforms
that Imvo inured in tho past to the benellt
of society and thu advancement of
humankind; and since mankind is
a great brotherhood tho principle
upon which society is founded should
be broad enough for all to stand upon, tin J
without discrimination each must bo ac
corded equal opportunity for advancement
intellectually, morally, Hori.tlly and finan
cially. Knights of Ijtbor believe that (iod,
when Ho made man, made man in His im
age aud not wealth; therefore, industrial
and moral worih, not wealth, should be
the standard of human greatness. And
while tho mere possession of wealth should
not stiiud against an individual, neither
should it license an individual to commit
wrong or give power to oppress.
Anything that isof value to society wo
call wealth, whether it bu tho discovery of
a great truth, an invention of utility or'tlie
production of the skilled hand of the ar
tisan, or the application of uuiinml labor.
An idler doe no invent; neither does ho
discover, acquire skill or apply his baud to
Manual toil; therefore, labor prolines all
wealth, aud the purpose of the Knights of
Jjibor is "to sveuro to tho worker thu full
enjoyment of the wealth he produces, suf
lieielit leisure in wlliell to develop his in
tellectuul. moral and soeial facilities, all of
1 1 io Is'iielits, recreiilions nnd pleasures of
association. In a word, to enublo him lo
share in tlie gains and honors of advancing
Knighthoo.1 with the workers, Indies ittnl
gentlemen, is a principle. Tru.l.n nni in
ism is u principle. Cpon one or Hid other
of those prineijiii-s, or both, the workers of
thu world stand, uniting their ellurts for
protection and udvauc. ioetit. Coinhina
Hons of tho greedy wliidi, tho disixnition
of uiuii to enslave and oppress his fellows,
at once suggests a counteracting Ions'.
"When bad men combine the gtxd must
associate, else they will fall, ouu by one,

olh'-rs. 'I he purKxeof the union of n trade,
ordinarily, is to maintain uu es aud leduee
the hours of toil; of farmer, to secure
Ih-kI priiv for the prislui'imiis of thu farm
and pnsuru sin li srlieh-s na thev may neeil

In short, trade ntiior.i-im umliTliikes to
make thu U-st of the condition and to de

of production; in other words, to uipaciiilu

Much lei been sil id and written ulsillt
whsl Knight of lailsir are, and I must
tell you somo of the thing that they are
not. Knight of l-almr sru not com
tuuiiists or anarchists. Thev aro not
"sliikeis," as somo nwy have been led to
believe; they sro not partisan xi!itirn
tricksters and dem tgogues. What is an
archy? We n-gurd it at confusion, do we
not? An anarchist as ono w ho not only
violates law as the mesii to an end, hut
ilelli law and even denounce it at a
curse. I there, an individual, are there
individual in this community (and in
sis-nkiiig of thu community 1 have refer
ence to .Memphis, to Miclliy Comity, to
tho great Slate of leimetsve, to Aik.tinuit,
lo thu Lulled Slates) are there those who
violate law nt their own ivont will nnd
pleasure and set themselves up in Uetlanco
of law? Then they are tho anarchists,
practically so, and enemies of evorv in
stitution w orthy of our consideration. The
oruor oi too Knights of Labor demand
thnt tho law shall bo enforced, rigidly en
forced and enforced without discrimina
tion. Tho order demands for tho worker
that which ho produces nothing more
end we aro uot willing that ho shall ro
Ceivo any less. This grand organisa
tion, through tho power of its educational
work, has accomplished more toward
abolishing Btrikes und all other extremes,
und to educate above mcro brute force,
during tho twenty years of its existence
than every olhor institution and iulluunco
combined. Ono of our cardiual declara
tions, w hich has been strictly adhered to,
is '"to associate ourown labors to pursuado
employers to agree to arbitrate ull diller
euces which iiuiy arise between them and
their employes, lu order that the bouds of
sympathy befveen them may bo strength
ened and that strikes may ' bo rendered
unnecessary." The organization is not a
p-a-r-t-y organized for tho puriioso of
electing someliody to olliee. We have
belter methods thun p-a r-t-i-e-s practice,
and practice w hat wo preach.
Says tho Arkansas (oi.vffr, commenting
on extracts from the l'ino Jtlutl Graphic
and the New Orleans iiioimc:
"In the namo of patiiotisin," exclaims
tho 1 'ino ltliili (V'uiiV, "docs every ono
want an olliee? Are tho professions, ex
cept the political profession, uro the fin ins,
the factories, und all to bu forsaken in the
general scramble for olliee?" Xheru is an
ubundaiico of justification for this com
ment. IWessional porftfe ,as become
almost a mania. A populur Ciovernment
like ours is rather more favorable to it
than any other, aud sullers more from
it. Tho Xew Orleans I icatjnnr. discussing
tho iliilcrcut schools ol politics, says:
"In fcuroiw politics is a profession. In
tho United Hates it is u trade. In tho
older nations men are brought up to diplo
macy und state.-mauship tn theyara to law
und medicine. In this country thev are
only cxeetod to learn thu trade ol ollicu
gelting. If they know that nothing moru
"lu American civilization thu tendency
is to uiuke scheming politician raiherthaii
statesmen, lint it is impossible that it
could bo otherwise under our svslem.
Here a mau'3 ability to get into olliie aud
remain there is of inoro iinortauce than
hisquaiillciitioii for the duties of the bjsi
tion. Tho successful olliee-getter is a man
w ho has :hu ciumcily tog.tin thu instance
of others who aro prominent in politics.
The chief tie between them is a. commu
nity of intetoit. Ono can help the other.
That is all of it. leading politicians men
beromo mere bosses, controlling their
hordes of retainers by making ins eleva
tion to or retention in oiiiee thu personal
interest oi each. Our young men might
sp.-nd veiirs in studying stalesin.itmhip.

whosi) knowledge of political philosophy
was eonlincd wholly to "working'' ih'o
wards or Is ing very useful at thu polls.
Tho American system dos not develop
statc.um-n, but only iiohliciiuis."
"The foim.lcrs of this toivcrnment fore
s.iw this danger and warned the people
against it. '1 hey eiu-oiiniged llieni to a
thorough and exacting scrutiny of eveiy
oll'.cial action nnd urged that tho-.u in

such a reformat ion."

of society, political mil olli'-rwise. I hit
hear the general master workman, Mr.

"As on order we have a higher mission

investigating tho l'urnellites, but also
forming a decision that will ulTect tho fu

"It is usual in all cases to havo tho
members of tho tribunal chosen by mu

Webster acted in this as in every other
way with tho trickery of a pettifogging
attorney. Ho was asked by Sir Charles

beforehand, so that tho leaders of tho
Liberal party might havo a word to say
with regard to ut least onu of tho ju.lgo.
Webster promised a reply, hut never gavo

twenty years of the divorco courts in this

to his ill health, for ho sutlers from an in

"One of thu Becrets of the success of
this extraordinary advocate is that ho has
a more than usual allowance of that
strong, hard, gritty iiaturo which ladongs
