There seems to be an impression
aoroad, in many quarters, that a solu.
tion of labor difSculties is to be found
in compulsory arbitration. Now, if
this term has any meaning, it must
signify a legally constituted body
which should hear the arguments of
both sides in these difficulties between
employer and employed, and decide
between them, with power to enforce
its decisions, a system of penalties for
disobedience, etc. in other words,
United States or State court, as the
cise might be. But we have a large
number of courts already; why not
resort to them? Evidently because it
is desired to secure and enforce decis
ions in a class of cases where no of
fense against ordinary laws, civil or
criminal, has been committed. As
employer has cut down wages; has
dismissed a man who belongs to an
influental labor organization; has em
ployed men belonging to no organiza
tion, or has purchased materials of, or
. in some other way dealt with some
one else who has done one of these
things, and a strike or boycott is the
result. Now, while any overt act
committed by either party as an inci
dent to the trouble may find its way
into our ordinary courts, evidently
the original grievance cannot; as we
are not ready yet to brand any of
these acts illegal when they do not in
volve tho breaking of a legal contract.
But what could a new court of ar
bitration do if given the power to
enforce its decrees? Suppose a strike
has arisen from a reduction of wages
to one dollar a day, and the court
decides that the manufacturer must
pay one dollar and fifty cents what
if he prefers to go out of the business
rather than do so? Must he go on in
a business which he no longer wishes
to follow, or be thrown into jail or
heavily fined ? Or wil 1 the court seize
his capital and conduct his business
under a receiver, paying the former
owner such profits as may be thought
proper? And what if there should be
bo profits at all, but a loss?
Suppose, on the other hand, that
the court decides upon a less rate of
wages than the men are willing to
accept shall they be forced to work
against their will? Or lef'the difficulty
be over the employment of non-union
laborers; eb&ll the court on the one
hand forbid the employment of men
who will not join a certain organiza
tion against their own judgment, or,
on the other hand, compel union men
to work for a certain employer, when,
foi any reason sufficient to themselves
they wish to quit?
In short, is there any sphere at all
for courts of compulsory arbitration
which would not involve an abroga
tion of individual rights characienstic
of despotism, or of nineteenth century
freedom! The points of dispute in
which it is in accordance with ordi
nary xaeas or justice and right to
make and enforce a legal decision are
within reach of existing courts. If
we cannot force ordinary laws in or
dinary courts, as against capitalists or
strikers, why should we hope for any
better success in a new series of courts
under a new name?
1 'When strikers are made to feel,
through the channel of our ordinary
criminal courts, that the penitentiary
is the most probable sequel of their
CBimes, the ground will be cleared for
a satisfactory solution of difficulties,
and not until that time. .

But the Sabbath bell rang In vain

The sun had shone down with re
lentless force all day, but as evening
drew on the heat became so intense
and the air so oppressive, that I felt
restless and uncomfortable.
I could not remain quietly in the
house, nor did I feel that I could en

the Quiet town, where the pious vil
la&rers were wending their way to the
little chapel, and down the road that
led to the haunted house.

gleam of a snow white sail.
'How foolish to be out in such

upon the bank and watched the white
speck rise and fall.
Suddenly it wavered and disap

cry for help was borne to me upon
the whistling wind. The sail boat

The sail boat had turned bottom
upward, and a solitary man was
clinging to one side of it.
I quickly rowed up alongside, and
threw him one end of a piece of rope
i had found in the SKin.
He grasped it eagerly, and half
swimming, and half by aid of my
pulling I got him safely in, and
started for the shore.
He was evidently hurt or exhaust
ed, for he lay quite Btill in the bot

strangly white through the darkness.
When we reached the landing I
jumped out and made the boat fast,
then went back for the stranger.
He was hardly able to stand, anu I
partly led, and partly dragged, him
up the bank. Clearly he could not
go far. As near as I could under
stand his few indistinct words he had
been hurt by the falling mast.
There was nothing for it but to try

I was thoroughly exhausted by the

like a trusting child, 'Yes,' she said
simply. 'It is Silas Gordon, and now
will you hear my story?'
It was a long story I listened to
that night, while the good doctor
watched at the bedside of his patient,
and the storm still raged outside.
A long story, but I will try to repeat
it briefly it l can.
Helena Johnson had married Silas
Goidon to save her father's life.
Her mother was the young wife who
ha 1 died in the haunted house sup
used to be by her own hand. But
in truth she had been shot by her
husband in a nt ot jealous rage.
She was innocent as a little child,
and the unhappy man realized it as
soon as the deed was done, but it was
too late. The cause of it all, the false
friend who had come between them,
aaw the deed done.
The wretched husband would have
yielded himself up to justice, but Silas
Uordon saw advantage to himself in
the other s silence.
He compelled him togo fromthe room
and out into the shrubbery before the
servant who heard the report had enter
ed the room where the dead woman
'You must be silent for you child's
sake, and for your wife s honor,' had
been the plea by which Silas Gordon
had set a seal on the miserable man's
So the coroner said, 'accidental
shooting' and all the world believed it
save the wretched husband and his
so called friend.
Friend, fiend rather, for he fastened
on the remorse of the man who lived
in his shadow, and grew rich by
threats of the other s exposure.
. And not content with this slow tor
ture he demanded a last sacrifice at
the hands of the half crazed father,
the hand of his daughter, and she
only knowing that in this way her
beloved father would be saved from
death and honor, consented.
They had only been married a few
weeks, when the father was taken with
a fatal illness, and died, but not before
he had confessed all to his daughter,
and after his death she had fled from
her husband to this deserted house,
thinking he would not seek her there.
She had ready money, and she
brought that with her, and thought to
live in entire concealment, but when
her stock of provisions ran low, she as
sumed the disguise of the old colored
woman, using , for the purpose gar
ments sue had found in the house.
'And it was you 1 saw and heard
in the shrubbery?' I said when the
story was ended.
'Yes, it was I, and I was so fright

in the moonlight that I could not help
