-The American branch of the "Internation?
al Workingmen'^ Association" is eaid to con
slit of thirty-two sections, located in the prin?
cipal cities of the United Slates-Kew York
City having eleven 6ec!ionB and Brooklyn
two. The word "section'' is equivalent to
what ls generally called in this country "a
lodge." The average number of members In
each section is now supposed-to exceed two
hundred. The largest section is found In New
Orleans-over six hundred strong-and com?
posed mostly of Frenchmen, Belgians and
Swiss. With the possible exception of one or
two, the foreign element of our population
largely predominates In the thirty-two sec?
tions. The American branch is governed
by a council, which holds its sessions in New
York City. Women are admitted to member?
ship. Three new sections are in progress of |
lormatioa this week-one in Newark, one in
Boston, and one In New York City. Tne lat?
ter will be composed mostly if not altogether
of colored citizens.
-Episcopalians will be glad to hear authori?
tatively as to the new Hymnal adopted by the
late general convention, and which lt was pro?
posed to use in the churches on and after
Epiphany Sunday, January Gib. By Its action j
the psalms and hymns now In the Prayer-Book
and the new Hymnal are alone authorized to
be used In public Bervice in the Protestant
Episcopal Church, but the convention prohib?
ited the latter being bound up wit.i the Prayer
BOC-K, as it i9 proposed to test its merits dur?
ing the three years intervening before thc
next convention, and then to revise lt accord?
ingly. The new Hymnal has been copyright?
ed by the convention for the benefit of the
lund for aged and infirm clergymen, and any
one may publish it cn purchasing the standard
plates made for tbe convention, by guarantee?

A bill was introduced in tbe Honse of
Representatives "io prevent certain officers
"from dealing in certain securities or evi?
dences of debt." It waa referred to the
Committee on Ways and Means, who report
that the object Bought lo be obtained by tbe
bill "is cover*? 1 by law now on the statutes,
"to which this Act will add nothing what?
ever. They further say that, "while the
"committee have every reason to believe
"that transactions of this kind are carried
"on by State and county officials, they are
"carried on in a manner to evade the con?
sequences of the law that now exists, or
"can be enacted. The committee, there
"fore, deem it unnecessary to encumber the
"statute books of this Slate" Thi3 is a cu?
rious confession for a legislative committee
to make. They admit that the State and
county officials are speculating, contrary to
law, in claims against tbe State. They
kno^v the way that the law is evaded. They
must be satisfied that official jobbery is an
injury to the State, and a heavy loss to the
needy holders of pay certificates, coanty
checks and the like. And yet they give the
jobbers immunity by announcing thal no
law "can be enacted" which will restrain
them from carrying on their profitable trade.
For a General Assembly which, by statute,
proposes to prevent excited men from using
naughty words and from tippling over much,
this is a notable admission of weakness. We
think that the committee, if acting in good
Taith, owed it to the Legislature to specify
the means of evasion practiced by State and
jouoty officials who speculate io public
claims. The members could then have de?
rided for themselves whether lhere was nb
redress. If the voting majority would, for
'or once, elect to public office only responsi?
ve and honest men, lhere would be no de
nand for laws to make jobbery a penal of?
fence; but as lODg OA persons of the stump
)f our present officials approve accounts and
?old the purse-strings, the only safeguard is
tuch legislation as will reduce stealing to a
ninimam. We ask General Whipper, thee,
;o inform the public who are the State and
xmsty official.' who deal ia "certain securi?
ties or other evidences of indebtedness,"
md, also, what is "the manner" in which
.hey "evade the cons?quences of Ihe law
"that now exists."
New England Changing Front.
We have long looked upon the gradual
change of sentiment In ihe New England
States on the subject of protective tariffs ns
promising a liberal support from that quarter
'or every well organized and sustained
movement ia the direction of free trade.
The expression of this opinion from time to
Lime has called cut vigorous denials from
ihe Boston Advertiser and other journals,
jut we find in the Springfield Republican,
Di recent date, a confession of the aban?
donment of the doctrine of protection by
Eastern manufacturers, which fully confirms
ill that has been said on the subject. The
Republican says :
"No one can have watched with any care
the organs of public opinion In New England
for the past four years without observing a do
:ided chance of tone in relation to the tariff.
The latest and most notable indication In tins
lirection Is the resolution passed at Worco uer
by the Republican Convention denouncing the
navigation law, which makes it illegal to buy
ships, and toe high tariff taxes on material-,
which make it impossible to build them. The
resolutions of political c inventions are not
ordinarily of any great consequence, and this
ls not, except as Indicating the strong desire
of Boston to regain her ocean traffic, and the
(act that she has found the navigation law and
the tariff an obstacle In her way. The ship?
builders of Maine, also, have repeatedly peti?
tioned Congress for drawback of duties on
shlpb' materials, though they, as shipbuilders,
have naturally a less desire for the repeal of j
the navigation law. Several causes have
powerfully contributed to modify opinion in
New England, and to make her beg.n to
Bwing round again toward herod and cher?
ished hostility to commercial restrictions ol
The Republican considers at some length
the reasons for the change which hos taken
place, but owing to our limited space we are
compelled to omit its analysis of causea.
We quote further os follows :
"In ihe second place, the coal duty has al?
ways been an abomination in New England,
a ? *?.?.. * what the New England
people want, and what the New England
manufacturers want, Is cheap power. The
bitumlnoua coal of Nova Scotia ls just the
thing for their furnaces. For many purposes,
it is better than anthracite. But the duty of
one dollar and tweniy-flve cents in gold per
ton almost doubles what would be the price of j
the Ficlou coal. A treasurer of one of the
Piclou coal companies testified, not long ago,
that he considered two dollars in gold a very
good price for coal already loaded on schoon?
ers for ihe Boston market- he had sold some
as low as one dollar and seventy-five cents In
gold. Calling it two dollars, there is a duty
ol sixty-two and a half per cent, on coal. It
is a pure tr.bute to Pennsylvania an th: adte.
It inervases the cost, and thus lessens the
market of New England manufactures. This
?act has stuck In the throats of"some people,
and makes them doubtful of the whole sys?
tem that embrace such particulars."
With regard to the views of the shoe
manufacturers, the Republican says:
"The shoemakers are up in arms. A good
deal of what is called the dissatisfaction of j
labor springs from causes that have their seat
in the tariff. The boot and shoe interest is
the largest single Industry in the United
States, next to agriculture. It employs more
mea and uses more capital than either the
woollen, the cotton or the Iron Industry.
More than one hundred and thirty-one thou*
sam! persons earn their daily bread In this em?
ployment alone. Most of this Industry Is
located io New England and in Massachusetts.
Lynn began to make shoes-to sell ia 1651,
and, In 1868, made about nine million pain
enough to give one pair to about every fourth
person in the country. Brookfield is not
much, If any, behind Lynn, and in Milford,
Haverhlll, Newburyport and other towns in
Massachusetts, it is the principal occupation of j
the people. The shoemakers never asked for
any protection for themselves, and never got
any; but the present tariff crowds item on
their materials almost unendurably. Lynn
makes mostly a cloth shoe lor ladies' wear.
The wool biil of 18G7 puts a duty ol nearly
one hundred per c*ut. on the lasting ot which
these shoes are made, and that, too, at a time
when not a yard ol that s ind of goods was
made in thia country. The rubber goring,
too, which is a feature of these shoes, is taxed
fifty per cent, in gold before the manufacturer
can touch lt. There ls also a duly upon hides
and leather. About lour hundred of the prin?
ciple.boot and shoe manufacturers of New
England have united in a downright remon?
strance against these features ot the tariff,
and their Influence over public opinion is very
considerable. They constitute a good deal of |
public opinion themse.vts."
Concerning the woollen interest, the Re?
publican says :
"The woollen industry ls in a very unsatis?
factory condition, especially th? manufactures
of the finer grades of labt les. Edward Har?
ris, and the Bhode Island manufacturers gen?
erally, are the spokesmen, of these men.
They complain that, while they have to pay
about one hundred and ten per cent, duty on
their fine wools imported, the carpet and blan?
ket wools come in at about fiiteen. They
complain, also, lhat while they have to pay,
on the average, seventy-s!x per cent, ol the
whole cost oi their goods In duties on the
materials, the completed product that com?
petes with their own ls admitted at thirty-five
per cen . They do not want, however, lo
have this latter rate raised, but piay lo be re?
lieved of the fermer, and prefer that both to?
gether should go by ibe board absolutely than
to have things as they are. We hear that
these Ideas are working In the minds of some
of the woollen manufacturers up In Berkshire,
who are by no means aB prosperous as for?
merly, and that they say openly lhat the tariff
ought to be and must be changed In the Inter?
est ot lower duties."
The Republican might properly have in?
cluded the manufacturers of cotton fabrics
and the representatives of many other less
important industries among the opponents
of the tariff, and ita failure to do sois doubt?
less attributable to oversight or the neces?
sity of economizing space. Mr. Edward
Atkinson is as much entitled Jo recognition
ts the spokesman of the cotton interest ns
Hr. Edward Harria of the woollen manufac
urers. The Republican, BO far as we know,
s the first representative jouroul of the
tfew England States to diecover what, to
ne people of other sections, has long been
)bviou3, that the Eastern manufacturers
lave 'learned from experience the folly of
