War on the Knights of Labor.
War has been formally declared between
the leather manufacturers of Newark, N. J.,
and the knight?! of labor. A secret meet
inn of the manufacturers' association was
held .Monday morning, and the following
circular was adopted und placed in the hands
<: the. svorkmeu iu the different factories :?
Out Employi es:
Sincotho formation of tho so-called labor or
;anisation there have been strikos and lockouts,
and disturbances of different kinds in our
tory, resulting in loss cud damage to us and
. ausing a !o?s of tiiue and money to our em?
ployees ; and being convinced that a man who is
uot a member of such organization is as good a
workman, a better citizen and more apt to ho
faithful to himself, his family and his employer
than *>no who is bound by the rules of such or?
ganization to obi-y its orders, regardless of conse?
quences, however unjust or tyrannical its com
audsmaybo, and believing that better results
it II be obtained by according to both employer
rd '. omployeo tho right of individually contract?
ing for his labor, this factory will hereafter be
open only to such workmen :is will agree to deal
individually with us.
In carrying out the above we do not propose to
reduce wages, but, on tho contrary, wo favor uni?
form wages iu all manufactories for the same
class of work. Wc will protect our workmen
from any unlawful interference or annoyance by
iny man or body of men ai far u* it is possible,
The above is to take eilect on Saturday,
August 13, 1SS7. Another resolution was
presented aud adopted, which binds the
members of the association to employ only
men who are uot knights of labor. After
a manufacturer has declared a lockout or
^hut down and desires to resume work
again he will bo required to appear before
the executive board of the association and
to give pledges that he will conduct his bus?
iness without any agreement with or re
ignition of tho knights of labor. On this
condition he will be permitted to continue
a member of the association. A failure to
do this will entaii a forfeiture of his bonds,
which uro said to bo worth $1,000. The
knights lind themselves in an almost hope?
less situation. If they refuse to accept tho
manufacturers' term? about four thous?
and men will be idle, and it is generally
understood that the order is in no finan?
cial condition to support so large a
:iumber of mon for any considerable lime.
Newark is the largest leather producing city
in the country and has heretofore been re?
garded as a citadel of organized labor. The
manufacturers' association is composed of
thirty seven large firms. In the present
fight the question of wages or working hours
is not an issue. It is a square contest be?
tween organized capital and tho knights of
labor. Tho manufacturers' association has
plenty of money, and many of them have
a le large fortunes out of the business.
They arc all determined, and declare that
they will not compromise. The president
as several times refused to hold any con?
ference with the knights of labor. For
reral weeks there was au armed neutrali?
ty, but ou Saturday the first rupture occur
red, when the workmen in T. P. Ho well's
. itory?one of the largest in the city?were
called out by tho master workman. The
ghts claim that Howe! I was assisting K.
Q. Solomon, a non-union manufacturer, to
obtain labor. Over two hundred men left
the factory. About half the force returned
to work Monday morning, and Mr. Howoll
tays he is confident of getting all the men he
wants. It is understood that several of the
manufacturers, anticipating a strike, secured
.. number of men in Massachusetts and Con?
necticut, and will take them to Newark if
Life on thr Moon.?There is reason for
thinking that, the moon is not absolutely
airie.-s, and while it has no visible bodies of
water, its noil may, after all, not bo entirely
irid and desolated. There are observations
which bint at visible changes in certain
-pot< that could possibly bo caused by veg?
etation, und there arc other observations
which suggest the display of electric lumi
no-iiy in a rarilied atmosphere covering the
To declare that no possible form of
life can exist under the conditions prevail
upon the lunar surface would be saying
too much, for human intelligence cannot
bounds to creative power. Vet, within
the limits of life such as we know them, it
is probably safe to assert that the moon is a
: and deserted world. In othor words,
if a raco of beings resembling ourselves, or
resembling any of our contemporaries in
?-trial life, ever existed upon the moon,
they must long since have perished.

b the other evening, something that
1 like a meteor came whizzing down
through the treo tops, shot past hie head,
ti into his hall, turned to the left

open window at the rear of the room, and
