EIGHT DOLLARS A YEA&
THE NORTHEM STRIKERS.
RISE AND PROGRESS OF THE LABOR
The Action of the Employer? and Work?
men-A Word on Strikes-The Other
View of the Question.
The derangement o? labor caused by the
eight-hour agitation in New York and at other
points continues to excite general remark; but
lt ls alleged by the New York papers that the j
disposition now ls to accept the action of the
employers on Tuesday night as the turning of
the tide. That action was by the employers
of all branches resolving that they would
reject the eight-hour system, accept ten hours
only as a day's work, and bold out to the
bitter end. In some trades, though, it is
Kr.own the eight-hour rule has been conceded I
. to, and in others the demand for Increased !
wages granted. The following history of tb,e j
character and progress of the strikes contains 1
many interesting facts, some Indeed that are I
j really surprising as to the amount of moneyed
.?support afforded by combinations of other
; workmen abroad as well as at home. The I
/ reflemlon cannot but be suggested thereby
that the same amounts of capital applied by I
the workmen in starting co-operative estab-1
V Hshments o? their own, In which they would I
I take to themselves all the profits of their j
labor, would be a much more economic thing I
than this unproductive consumption while
labor ls suspended. The Herald relates as
Seven weeks ago the Journeymen painters I
of New York demanded of their employers
the adoption o? the eight hour system, without
any decrease In the existing rate of pay tor a I
da.7'8 work. The employers resisted the de-1
maud, and the men struck. Their example
waa speedily followed by the carpenter?,
bricklayers, plasterers, masons and others in
the building business, and the strike gradually
spread, until lt embraced nearly every trade
and calling lu the city. The German cabinet
makers formed an eight hour league, and, as
they bad command of a large amount of I
money, they managed to draw a vast number I
of men into the movement, although their I
Organization lacked energy aud ability to head
a general rising. The strikers met with vary
lng fortune. The carpenters, masons, painters,
bricklayers and plasterers succeeded, and re
turned to work nnder the eighth-hour system.
The pianoforte-makers and coachmakers-gave I
way before the firmness of their employers, I
and abandoned the strike. A large number
of trades remained in the movement, but the | ;
prospect lor a general concession of their de-11
mana did not look very promising until about I ;
two weeks ago, when the iron and metal work-1,
era took the field. Mainly through the efforts of J i
one mau, who commenced by getting small I
croups of workmen together and talking over I :
the matter, ibis new element lu the I
movement grew with wonderful rapidity. I
Agents were sent out among the iron I
m?n all over the State o? New York I,
aud all along the line of the Brie rall-1
way lito other States, organizing strikes, and . ,
the euect ot the energy o? the leaders soon
made itself apparent. To-day the Iron and I ?
Metal Workers' Elgbt-bour League numbers
over ten thousand enrolled members. It has
been Joined by a branch ot the English Society
of Steam Engineers, a branch of the Interna-1,
donal Machinists' and Blacksmiths' Society, I,
and other foreign organizations. The Amal-1
gamated Society of Engineers of England have
paid hali a million o? dollars to the credit of I,
the "League tor the nse and benefit of the j ,
strikers; the International Machinists and
Blacksmiths have subscribed one hundred .
thousand dollars for the same purpose, and |
other European societies have followed with
smaller donations. To-day this Ironwovkers'
Leagne bas a capital of three-quarters or a
million dollars and a weekly income from sub?
scriptions ol their own men who are working.!1
on the elght-honr principle, and from other 11
societies, reaching seven thousand dollars. I '
The leaders declare that the strike is now self
supporting- that is to say, that they have I
fonds enough to take care of all the men who
may quit work. The consequence Is that the |
movement is spreading In all directions, anew I ?
impulse has been given to the strike In every 11
trade, and the trouble already experienced I
seriously in some quarters is likely to extend 11
to' the railroads and Into every manufacturing
Such was the history np to the action of
the New York employers on Tuesday even- j
ing. That action is now extensively canvass-11
ed at the different meetings of the working
mee, and forms the prevailing topic ot con-1
venation in business circles ther- disturbed
by the strike. The employers thought a blow
had been given, which, for the present at r
least, will |defeat the elgbt-bour movement. I
Thejfctrlkers, on the other hand, seem not en
tl rely disappointed, but aver that, together I
with the relief afforded by the Eight-Hour
League and that contributed ,by the workmen I ,
who have obtained their demands and are I :
now at work, they will be enabled to bold 11
out as long as the employers. The latter who I,
sign the resolutions In New York are some.]!
three hundred in number. Including leading 11
manufacturers, who are said, with others who I !
agree with them, lo employ in ordinary times I '
some forty-five thousand operatives, and one I :
of their resolutions is as lo Ho ws :
Resolved, That we will not hereafter retain '
In our employment any workman guilty of I.
any act loosing to the arbitrary establishment
ot relations between the employer and em- I
ployed; and In conclusion, we earnestly call
upon our mechanics individually to exercise
their own good sense In the present emer-1
gency, and to avoid evil counsels. That we
will hereat ter pay our workmen by the hour, a nd
employ such as are willing to work ten hours
per day, and we will close our establishments
if necessary, and keep them closed until wal
can employ workmen on this basis. The
"Trades Unions,'' societies and leagues, so
called, have, by their unreasonable and arbl- I
trary demands, done much to disturb the rela
Hons between employer and employed, by
forming combinations to secure the same rate
of compensation for inferior as lor superior
workmen, by dictating to employers the con
dillons under which they will be permitted to
conduct their business, in some cases lmpos
lng heavy flues on such employers SB Infringe
the regulations laid down by their workmen,
and we consider such tyranny incompatible i
witti the best Interests of both.
A WORD ON STRIKES.
Ther* is much to be Bald, however, at this
clay, and in the light of Its Intelligence, on I
this whole subject of labor. The annexed
temperate and comprehensive article from the j
New York Post ls, therefore, worthy to be j
The tone ot a portion of the press in relation
to the strike ie, we think, to be earnestly dep-1
recated. We hope and believe that the larger
number of the men engaged in these attempts
to better their condition are moved by a de
sire to correct by rational means, and without
resort to turbulence or force, what they hold
io be an Injustice done them In the order of
society. To assume the contrary to* be the I
fact, and to accuse the men on strike of being
always, and by choice, reckless and violent,
is just trie way to make them BO; ls just the I
way to depress the rational and sober portion
of them, and encourage those ol the other
sort, who Infest every popular movement, and
who will, if possible, turn it from ii s legitimate I
end. or bring lt about by illegitimate measures.
Workingmen on strike, lt should be co ns hi-1
ered, are under peculiar temptations, are ex
posed often lo peculiar hardshlps,and uecessa-1
rily count among themselves always a certain
number of men who are ignorant, little amen
able io reason, and Impatient naturally of a I
slow and peaceful method of attaining what,
it seems to them, can be reached by a sudden
und violent effort. It ls this class which needs
to be held under restraint, and which the
more considerate workingmen find lt the most
difficult to Influence and control. It is cruel
and short-sighted to say a word that adds to
i his difficulty, and it makes the Solution of a I
rvoblem, which we have got to solve some-1
flbw In ibis generation, all the harder. |
STILL ANOTHER VIEW.
j There Is also that which cannot be disre?
garded io the statement called up by the New
York Bulletin, that Schultze, of Delitsch, the
great labor apostle of Germany, revolution?
ized the industry of his country by the sound
maxim that the only means of improving the
condition ol the workingman ls by increased
production and increased economy of earn?
ings. He so impressed his countryman with
this Bound principle, that it has served them
to equally good purpose in Hie Fatherland and
in the home of their adoption in the United
States. In this country the adoption ol this
! principle has rendered them the most indus?
trious, tbrilty and prosperous portion of our
foreign-born population. Hence, adds the
It ls lolly to assume that strikes are wicked
measures pushed to wicked em's by wicked
men. It ls not yet absolutely settled us a
moral law that men who work with their
hands are only to have their daily bread, and
that those who work with money are to have
all the combined profit of. labor and capital.
It 1B, moreover, a question becoming daily
more and more complicated precisely what
dally bread ls, and how much ol it the indivi?
dual man and brother ought to have in his In?
dividual basket. Ours is a "commercial age;"
the world ls richer than it ever was before,
and is richer because lt ls more intelligent.
With the accumulation of riches inevitably
comes up the question of their distribution
a question by no means without lis difficulties,
especially calling for the wisest heads for its
settlement, and not at all likely to remdn set?
tled any considerable time by a policeman's
baton. Possibly that argument must some?
times be resorted to, but tne sooner brains
can be put to some better use than to be
knocked out by the batons, the Booner we
shall come to a rational conclusion ol the
whole BU rj oct. If things are right Just as they
are, lt will not be un easy task to prove (hat
to the majority in the world, who have begun
to doubt ll, and it is braius, not batons, that,
they will submit to. The sooner we begin to
be rational the belter.
To the German workmen the idea of im?
proving their condiiion by ntandlng idle must
appear a self-evident absurdity. It ls contrary
to all their habits and tendencies. They know
beforehand that an enforced or voluntary Idle?
ness ot a lew weeks will entail on them a loss
that cannot be compensated by a year's Indus?
try, even under the attainments ol ihe objects
of the strike. The suspension ol' loc?me and
the sure outgo for rent, food, and other neces?
sary expenses of living, are definite and posi?
tive losses that can hardly be counterbalanced
by the doubtful adVPitages promised by the
The New York Journal cr "Amerce says :
Nobody, however, can esca, ? from the cost?
ly consequences ot tue strikes which have
been goinc on here now for nearly two
months. They have raised the prices of many
of the necessaries of lire, and increased the
expenses of every description ol busi?
ness in New York. Every man with
anything to eell is revising or preparing
to revile his price-list wiin a view to
meet the greater expenses of carrying on
business. But, of au wno will have to pay
dearly for those violent and long-continued
disturbances of the natural laws ot trade, the
strikers will he the worst ofT.

show a low condition ranging from 100, the
standard of a medium prospect, down to 10,
and lu a lew cases to an entire failure. The
state of the average is calculated not simply
from the number of counties reported, but
from ihe comparative production of the seve?
ral counties. These 903 reports include a
very large proportion o? the wheat area of the
country. The summary ot the returns of the
area show a reduction of two per cent, from
that of 1871.
The average of spring wheat, in States
which grow that variety mainly, ls repre?
sented as follows: Maine 108, New Hampshire
100, Vermont 102, Massachusetts 95, Wisconsin

reports spring 120, winter 130. Illinois, where
winter wheat constitutes two-thirds of the
crop gives 101 for winter and 75 lor spring.
Kansas, where spring wheat, predominates, re?
turns 140 for spriug and 62 lor winter. The
States growing winter wheat are: Connecticut

els at eleven and a halt bushels per acre,
considering twelve bushels an average yield.
The area and condition ol the present crop, on
the Hrs', week in June, pointed to a product of
220,000,000 bushels in 1872. The crop of 1869,
which was about 16 per cent, above an aver?

Resolved, That local self-government with
impartial suffrage will guard the rights
of all citizens more i? jcurely than any cen tra!- '
Ized authority, and we affirm our belief in the '
doctrine that the people are best governed <
wblch are governed least. We, therefore, de?
mand lor the individual ihe largest liberty con?
sistent wit'i public order; we demand lor the
State self-government, and for the nation a <
return of r.be methods ol peace, and to the ?
constitutional limitations of power.
Resolved, 1 hat we are opposed to the employ- ?
ment ot governmental patronage for party
purposes; we protest against the use ol public
offices tn reward political friends or to punish
political enemies; we ore in favor of the i
adoption of a thorough system of civil service ,
reform: ano we demand a return to the early ?
practice under our government of appointing ,
men lo office on the ground of their fitness i
only, and of coniinuing them there while they ,
are honest and efficient. <
Resolved, That national taxes, whether col- ,
lecied under an excise or tariff act, should be i
Imposed for revenue only, and not lor what is i
called protection; and that all trade or ex- ,

tlie government for revenue will permit.
Resolved, Thal an act whereby the promise
of a dollar Is made a legal tender in place of a

the honor ol the nation may be maintained. 1
Resolved, That undue devotion to party has 1
already greatly damaged the republic, and we
now engage ourselves to discountenance, In
every possible way, the despotism of party or?
ganization, and the abject submission ot 1
voters to the dictates of party politicians.
Resolved, That Horace Greeley does not 1
represent these principles, but has been a life?
long opponent of the most essential of them.

Groesbeck, ol Ohio, and Frederick Law Olm?

our principles, and of such character and

His dying testimony to the many friends whom,
his kindly traits had gathered aoout bim. and
who administered to him to the hoar of death,
was that he died in tho raith and love of cn.-ute
His bereaved parents bear witness to his uni?

the-y hope ia Christ and through the blessed
promise of the Gospel to meet him once more la
