THE WORDS OF A STATESMAN.
As good, whosesomo Teading we com
mend to our Republican friends, the follow
ing: The sentiments expressed and the
propositions laid down, are those of Gen.
Chamberlain, late Governor of the State of
Maine, and a pronounced Republican.
During his speech, on decoration day, ho
employed the the following language:
"Local self-government aud States rights
are as dear to tho North as to the South,
and the prestige of the nation as useful to
the South as the North. So far as we were
concerned, the war was an act of defense
by the people for the people against the
hostile acta of State organizations pretend
ing to be supreme in this country, pretend
ing that it was in tho power of any of
them to say that henceforth there Bhould be
ao more a people of the United States,
That is what it was exactly, and wo
accepted the issue and settled it. We
'were not trying to drive a foreign foe
out of the country ; we were trying to bring
An allegiance ho had rashly and blindly re
padiated. We were fighting to compel tho
rebellious States to do their duty under the
Constitution, to come back into congress
again, and to take part in making laws and
regulating the course of this people in its
grand work in this broad land and among
the nation ot the earth. Is it not folly, is
it not babyish weakness to complain that
the States arc back again In congress and
that they have sent there such represcnta-
tivesas they must naturally choose? We send

manage the vital interests of our country.
"Why should they not send their beet minds?

disabilities for? If we did not want the

..-ever did that should not stultify himself by

over It and trying to make tho people think
-that thegreat war has not settled something.
Hhett are great questions that must be mot
must be discussed, must bo honor
ably studied and fairly stated and wisely
adjusted. There will be bad men and good
in Congress and out; bad measures and
good, bad theories and good. It is the
task of statesmanship and manhood to deal
with existing evils, to take things as they
are and make them what they ought to be,
and this should be done under the constitu
tion and through tho laws, and by oil tho
machinery of government connected, ex
pressly to avoid tho appeal to brute passion
and bruto torco. That's what constitutions,
and laws, and courts, and Congresses, and
ballot-boxes aro for. Let us not bo afraid
to discuss questions fairly and vote upon
TWELVE THOUSAND OPERATIVES
Some time ago the operatives in the Falls
River cotton manufactories submitted to a
cut of fifteen per cent, on the promise that
as soon as business Bhould improve tho pay
would be restored to tho old figures. Tho
men worked on and waited patiently for
tho improvement of business, fulfilling
to the letter their part of the covenant. A
month or more ago a marked improvement
in business took place, and tho manufac
turers failing to make good their promise,
the twclvo thousand operatives of
Fall's River, composing tho entire
force engage there in the manufactories,
now demand a restoration of their old wa
ges, avowing a purpose, in tho event of re
fusal, to quit work. On Tuesday last a
committee of spinners waited on the employ
ers, and received their answer, which reads
as follows :
To tho Spinners In onr Employ :
Gentlemen Your recent memorial ask
ing for an increase of fifteen 'per cent, on
your present rate of wages, and proposing
a board of arbitration for the settlement of
the question at issue, has had our careful
consideration. The proposal of arbitration
cannot lor a moment be entertained. Such
means of settling disputes between em
ployer and employed are not in consonance
with the methods of doing business in this
country, and we do not propose to inaugu
rate the plan. We are as keenly sensible
as yourselves ot the eflects ot the great dc
pression in business which has so long pre
vailed, resulting m the practical anuihila
tion of profits in manufacturing for several
years and the reduction of wages to the
present standard. In the case ot tlie la
borer, this change in circumstances has not
been without its compensation, lor along
with the reduction in the price of labor
there has been a corresponding reduction
in the price of everything produced by la
bor. Consequently the purchasing power
of your wages has increased in like propor
tion, lour memorial lias lniluceuusto
compare the prices paid for labor in this
city with those that prevail elsewhere in
print clotli mills, and we find that wo
are now paving from ten to fifteen per cent
more than is paid in a large number of
competing - mills, while we find none that
pay in excess; and inasmuch as it appears
by these comparisons that we are now la
boring under a decided disadvantage in tho
cost of producing cloth, to which may lie
added the less number of workfug hours,
we can see no good reason for increasing
the discrepancy that; now exists. Neither
has there been any such improvement in
our business as would warrant a compliance
with the request you make, and we can
have no assurance that tho moderately re
munerative business ot to-day can be so
fur depended on as to justify us in anticipat
ing the time when wages may be increased
with due regard to our own interest. Wc
are therefore constrained to say that we
must decline to acced to your request.
Tho New York Herald presents, in the
following shape, what the operatives claim :
"A tour among tho spinners this afternoon
shows a very determined spirit. They arc
evidently bent on trying their strength with
the manufacturers. Mr. Robert Howard,
president of tho Spinner's Association,
stated that they were fighting for a prin
ciple. They expected to win because they
had right on their side. Tho ' manufactur
ers had refused to arbitrate on the ques
tions at issus. There was a difference be
tween the employes and the employers, and
before proceeding to violent measures, tho
latter had offered to go into a conference
and try if an amicable settlement could be
made. This was refused. The spinners
had suffered a cut down of fifteen per cent,
and they had received assurances then that
when an improvement in business would
warrant it a restoration would bo made.
They had shown that that time had come,
and, therefore, they were entitled to tho res
toration. He believed that the operatives
would to thoroughly united in tho strug
gle. Other operatives and officers of tho
association were also seen, and they ex
pressed the same view of the situation.
TUB MANL'KACTyitKllS VIEW.
On the other hand the manufactures say
that their business will not allow nn increase
of wages, that they are paying as good prices
as other print mills in the country and they
will gladly close up their factories and work
off what stock they havo on bond. They
obiect to tho arbitration plan, chiefly bt
causo it is un-Amerlean, and they do not
want to Introduce it hero us nn element in
tho labor question. Then tho results of
any arbitration are not binding on either
party, and thcro is no guarantee that tho
findings of tho arbitrators will bo observed.
The manufacturers are very reticent; they
are arvcrse to being quoted in tho newspa
pers, as they do no like to bo iinglcd as the
object! of the operatives wrath. They aro
THE DAILY CAIRO BULLETIN;
determined to flghf it out and sottlo the
question now and forever if possible. '
In tliis contest the sympathy of tho pub
lic will bo with tho strikers. The pill
owners acknowledge tho improvement in
business yet refuse to observo their'cove$ant,
or refuso to submit to tho determination of
disintcrcstod men. It ia a palpable exhi
bition of bad faith on tho part of thejem
ployer to the employed, and dcserveB tho
reprobation of honest men tho couttry
over. Tho refusal to adopt tho arbitration
plan because it is un-American will exiito
more contempt than, approval. The leal
reason is because they are unwilling to ac
cord to their employes, what disinterested
parties shall, after considering all the facts
involved, declare to bo just and equitable.
The 6TOMACH cannot bb freighted with
greater trash than a violent drastic purga
tive. True, such a medicine relieves con
stipation for tho time, but at the expense
great injury to the intestinal canal, which
it both inflames and weakens, thus unfitting
it for the performance of ita proper frac
tions. Widely different is the action of
llostetter s btomach Bitters, a tonic aperi
ent which produces effects prompt, indeed,
but never violent and convulsing. The
purity of its botanic ingredients, its unob
jectionable flavor, its genial influence upon
the mind, and the thoroughness of its rem
edial action in cases of constipation, liver
complaint and dyspepsia, combmo to ren
der it a most desirable family specific. It
increases both physical vigor and substance,
tranquilizes and invigorates the nervous
system, and gives an unwonted relish for
the food. A wineglass threo times daily is
about the averago dose.
