Lincoln Journal: The British lion
turned around in some surprise to see
who it was that had hold of his tail.
When he saw it was Grover he smiled
benevolently and told him it was a
bright idea and to twist away until
election, but not to put much muscle
into the thing. Fact is, the beast had
bought a false tail for the occasion,
knowing that it might be necessary for
the Democratic party to twist some
thing in this emergency.
The leading manufacturers 0
Massachusetts have written to Mr.
Mills saying that labor in Lowell
is paid twice as much, in the
manufacture of woolen and worsteds,
as in England, and that free wool and
free machinery would not enable them
to compete with the foreign manufac
turer until they had reduced their labor
from the rate of one dollar to about
fifty cents per day. Xo, America does
not want Mr. Mills' medicine just yet.
We have yet to see a Democratic pa
per saying a word condemnatory of the
Union Labor party. Indeed many of
them are slobbering over the move
ment in a perfectlj disgusting manner,
The policy of the Union Labor party
seems to "be to fight the Republican

The United States Miller, published
at Milwaukee, Wis., and organ of this

the opinion of many leading millers of
the country regarding preference as to

the benefits likely to result to the mil

Millers' Association, designed; ta pool

;o ue request for his opinion on the
subject, Chris Hoffman, writing for
the firm of C. Hoffman & Son, puts
himself on record as follows:

This letter shows the absolute insin

trying to reinstate himself in politics
by posing as the friend of labor and the
enemy of monopoly. C. B. Hoffman is

The Voice of Labor.
Perhaps the most significant commu
nication of this campaign is the recent
letter of Charles H. Litchman. National
Secretary of the Knights of Labor, an
nouncing his turning to the support of
Harrison and Morton and giving his
reasons therefor. The letter is signifi
cant as indicating clearly the move
ment of the laboring classes toward the
Republican candidate, and it is inter
esting because it fairly bristles with
most cogent reasons for the laboring
men allying themselves with the Re
publican party in the present campaign.
In fact it is one of the most convinc
ing arguments from the standpoint of
the laboring interests that has been
presented during the campaign. It is
clearly the work of a man who thor
oughly understands how the interests
of labor are affected by the two eco
nomic policies, and his words of warn
ing will unquestionably have a great
effect in practically solidifying the labor
vote in favor of the party that stands
for the protection of American indus.
trie3. It shows conclusively that the
laboring classes have not been iu the
least deceived by the sophistry of the
Democrats. They have carefully
studied the situation and Lave decided
that their interests will be best sub
served under the Republican policy of
Mr. Litchman's letter is a most ad
mirable one and should be carefully
perused by every laboring man. It is
in part as follows:
Philadelphia, Aug. 27, 18S8.
Hon. S. M. Quay, Chairman of the Na
tional Republican Committee, Ever
ett House, New York.
Dear Sir: My connection with the
labor movement for the past fourteen
years has made it necessary for me to
be a close student of the causeb of labor
depression and of the needs of those
While as a body a labor organization
may refrain from active participation
in politics, so much of what organized
labor demands must be obtained
through legislation that the individual
members of the labor organization must
act politically as in his judgment will
best aid the aims and objects expressed
in the principles of the organization he
represents and whose success he desires.
Iu the gigantic political struggle now
begun, side issues count as nothing, ex
cept to aid or hinder one of the princi
nal combatants in the political arena.
'Hcvever sincere may be the advocates
of the measure to secure which these
separate political organizations are
formed, and whatever strength in votes
may be shown at the polls, the fact re
m tins that the candidate of either the
Republican or the Democratic party
will be the next President of the United
States. Therefore to him who has the
good of his country and the welfare of
her people at heart the recessity exists
to choose to which of these two old
party organizations shall be given aid.
either directly or indirectly, by voice or
While it may be that neither paily
offers all that labor organizations de
sire, I believe that the RepvAiican
party in adopting and advocating the
American system of encouragement
and protection to the laljov and wages
of our own laud, ig nrer the declara
tions and desires of organized labor
than its free trade opponent, the Dem
ocratic party. The conlliet Is between
the American system, as represented
by the Republican party, which would
foster and encourage the labor of oui
own people and retain for them the
market and va3es of our own country
and the British system as represented
by the Democratic party, which would
break down the barriers of protection
and throw open our home market to the
productions of foreign factories and
foreign labor, thus rn.ak.vng idle our own
toilers and reducing to a lower level
the standard of American wages.
When tho Knights of Labor and kin
dred organizations shall have obtained
in foreign lands the same commanding
position and inlluence enjoyed iu the
United States the inequality i wages
will disappear, not; by leveling onr
wages d.qwn buj by leveling our wages
Xt is tar better to level ur than to
level down, as the lar-dr the income
the larger the powr toconsume. Un
til this ear-' ti onn v,e accomn-
hobe1 a M1 thflwaces of labor
abroad shall equal those at home, there
must be a proper restriction of immi
gration, so that our land may not be
the dumping ground of the pauper and
degraded labor of the balance of the

be a land of workers rather than a land
of thieves and paupers.
The theory of protection advocated
by the Republican party is the same
as the underlying principle upon which
all labor organizations are founded.
A friend to organization of labor that
believes in organization as a means to
enhance and maintain wages cannot
nnnsistpntlv ODDOse a party that applies
to all labor the same principle of pro
tection from unfair competition that
the individual trade organization gives
to the single trade. J-xaae organiza
tions do aid in advancing wages in
their respective trades and the protec
tive system demanded by the Republi
can party will secure for all the toilers
in the land a similar fostering care.
A careful consideration of all these
facts convinces me that the present is
a grave crisis in the political affairs of
our country, and that I have no right
to remain silent-i
Myposition as general secretary or
the Knights of Labor has givei' me an

ga nized labor it could possibly receive
I cannot remain inactive in such a
conflict. Therefore to you and your
associates on the national Republican
committee, as the representatives of
the Republican party, I offer my ser
vices in any position or capacity where
they may be desirable1 or be thought
most useful, to aid in securing the suc
cess of Harrison and Morton, the rep
resentatives in this campaign of the
American idea of protection to Ameri
