Thc Robber of the Period.
An order for three thousand dollars, in fa?
vor of Mr. D. T. Corbin, approved by Mayor
Pillsbury, was presented for payment at the
City Treasury yesterday. How did it get
At the meeting of the City Council held
on Thursday last, Alderman Cunningham of?
fered a resolution that Mr. Corbin be paid
three thousand dollars for his professional
services. The Mayor put the question, but
there was so much confusion in the civic
temple that only five or six Aldermen voted.
There were, however, four votes against,
and two in favor of Alderman Cunningham's
resolution. The yeas and nays were called
for, and then began the exhibition of Bil?
lingsgate rhetoric which ended in one Alder?
man firing thrice at another Alderman with
a Colt's army revolver. The vote by yeas
and nays was not taken, the resolution was
not adopted; yet Mayor Pillsbury, when
asked for information, refused to say what
was its exact position. ?
We do not discuss now whether the ser?
vices of Mr. Corbin were worth three thous?
and dollars, or whether the city should pay
the fees for services rendered to the Mayor
and Aldermen as "rivate citizens. This has
nothing to do with the present question,
which is-whether Mayor Pillsbury has the
right to empty the City Treasury, when and
how it suits him? A vote of Council would
have relieved Mayor Pillsbury of all respon?
sibility. This he did not wait for. The
claimant hungered for the Joaves and fishes,
and the gentle Mayor could not, or would
not, resist his honied pleading.
We expect to be robbed, and shall not be
disappointed. But we did not look for so
flagrant a violation of all rules of reason,
right and decency as is shown in this last
freak of our eminently honorable Mayor.
Well what next?
The Earl of Derby, then Lord Stanley, re?
marked the other day that co-operation was
a "good thing," and he predicted "its suc
"ceas." Than Lord Stanley, no man in
Bnglaad or America ls more worthy of at?
tention, and he praises co-operation because
it is human nature that a man should like
to feel that he ls "a gainer by any extra in?
dustry he may put forth, and that he should
"like to have some sense of proprietorship
"in the shop or mill in which he passes his
"days," This is the whole question in a
nutshell; but Lord Stanley was evidently
speaking not of the ordinary co-operative
associations, but of what are oiled indus?
There are two distinct objects which the
workingmen, whether- common laborers or
skilled mechanics, are striving to obtain.
The one is protection, and the other is pro?
gress. The Trades Unions, in England at
all events, give the working men ample pro?
tection against arbitrary combinations on
the part of employers, and this can be had,
and will be had, without recourse to mea?
sures of violence like those which brought
down upon the Sheffield Sawgrinders the
deserved condemnation of the public. Natu?
rally and reasonably the workingman is a
lover of fair play and equal rights. The true
workingman will not consent to help in
maiming or killing his mates because they
refuse to belong to an association which is
intended for their benefit. The black sheep
may attempt to persuade the non-union
man by beating and woundiug. The honest
artisan will wait, knowing that self-interest
must in time bring all the workmen who are
worth having into what is purely a protec?
tive and defensive association. In England
the Trades Unions have grown so rapidly in
numbers and importance that a measure for
their recognition as legal incorporations
will undoubtedly receive Parliamentary sanc?
tion; and Lord Stanley, speaking in behalf of
a conservatism which is far from being pre?
possessed in their favor, is content to recog?
nise them as inevitable, and, on the whole,
a satisfactory form of popular combination.
The co-operative movement represents
what may be termed the aggressive side of
modern labor, as opposed to Trades Unions
the defensive side. Co-operation in this
country, in its simplest shape, has not been
strikingly successful." The co-operators
have been able to obtain provisions, for in?
stance, of full weight and good quality, at a
fair market price; hut the direct profits have
not been large. Nor could any extension of
the principle, in its present application,
meet the great want of either employers or
employed. The employers want to induce
their workmen to take au active and a per?
sonal interest in their occupation. As it
6tands, the good workmen does his work
faithfully, and receives his well-won wages.
But he eau do more thau this. He eau
watch over and protect the interests of his
employers in a hundred ways, and this he will
not do-it is not reasonable to expect it-un?
less a saving or a benelit to the employer is a
saving or a benefit to him. The employer
understands this argument, and, therefore,
when co-operation for production lakes the
shape of an industrial partnership, it is tole?
rably certain to succeed.
In England, the industrial partnership has
been tried. The experiment has been made
in various branches of industry, under va?
rious conditions, but all maintaining the es?
sential principle of giving the artisan a di?
rect interest in the results of his labor, and
furnishing him with a fresh inducement lo
make them productive. In some cases the
movement was made by the employers ; in
others it originated with the employed; but
iu all, the experiment has proved satisfac?
tory enough to justify its indefinite exten?
Industrial partnerships will satisfy (he im?
patient energies of the workmen of to-day.
They rise steadily in the social scale and
will not and shall not sink to the Lvel of a
mere machine. They claim the privilege of
following their handiwork beyond the gates
of the factory and of becoming identified
with its progress. They claim that they and
their employers are one, aud ask that they
be given an association as inseparable as
their interests. This will not be denied
them, and as yean roll by capital, the or?
ganizer, and labor, the producer, may walk
side by side in the smiling ways of industry
JOHN PLOUGHMAN'S TALK; or Plain Advice for
Plain People. By C. H. Spurgeon. New
York : Sheldon &"Co.
A man may win notoriety by a happy ac?
cident; he cannot wiu and keep distinction
without having something better in his gifts
than the capricious bounty of Fortune. Of
this truth Spurgeon affords an illustration;
that he is an English celebrity is due to his
having a good deal of brain, a good deal of
zeal, and a good deal of industry. He would
make a stir anywhere. A strong man never
resting prevents stagnation in a community.
Besides, he has the gifts of a popular lead?
er-heartiness, humor, courage. All these
qualities John Ploughman's Talk reveals.
It might be named Spurgeons opinions about
people whom he and all of us have met.
It is a book of friendly chat and jovial ban?
ter and aphoristic wisdom-funny, homely,
good-natured-pleasant to read and profita?
ble to ponder. While upon this subject, we
may be allowed, iu justice to Mr. Spurgeon,
to say that John Ploughman's Talk is not a
specimen of the author's pulpit perform?
ances, as a sensational story recently pub?
lished would seem to indicate. Mr. Spur?
geon is not accustomed to ring bells or slide
down banisters, as a part of Iiis public
ministrations, but preaches to as orderly
and serious a congregation as can be found
in England. Oftentimes homely iu illustra?
tion, he is uniformly earnest In the sacred
desk. This volume will serve to show what
he could do if he should undertake to excite
the risibles of a public audience.
