Jonh Kelly aaya He Wants a United New
New YoitK, Sept. 5, Mr. John Kelly
in a sp h before Ihe Tammany Hall Com
mittee on Organization, took a decided
stand for a union of the local Iiunoctatlo
factions. He said tnat the resolution
should speaii In favor of the sending of a
united Iiemocratio delegation from the
county convention. There was no reason
why a union could not now be had on dele
gates. The bickerings and animosities of
the factions should cease. If a united dele
gation was sent to Buffalo it would result
in a united delegation being sent from the
state of New York to the National conven
tion of 18s4. There should not be a divided
delegation at thut convention from New
York, Tammany Hall was earnest and
sincere for union and harntonv. If there
was not a union the fault could not be laid
at the door of Tammany HaM. Mr. Kelly
did not allude in his peeb to the action of
the State Committee at Saratoga.

"The Republican party baa outlrred Its

Umtilatp death. The hope that the
Republican party may find new Issues ami
still live can't be reaHiwd. "
The Sun lays. "Moat of the talk about
establishing a government telegraph bat
been so hasty and Ill-considered as to ap
pear merely the result of a visitation pto
duced by the failure of the telegraphers'
strike. Midsummer is a dull time for
many of the newspapers and tbey are glad
to start ome such pfc-lca a thl of tha
government telegraph without earing much
whelher the public take the matter seri
ously or not. ' '
The Times, commenting on the testi
mony of John Roach before the Senate
Committee on Labor and Education, says;
"It would be a good thing fur the wnrk
Ingmen of every trade if they could be
brought to nee that such employers, sprung,
as they usually are, from Hum own ranks,
are their heat friends; far belter friend
than tne men who try to make them unit
to keep down tho level of work to that
which the largest and least skillful can
reach, It would be well for them, also, If
they could realize that the patient energy,
the self denial and the steady thrift wblcb
have been the basis of Mr. Roach', own re
markable success, are Just as open to tbem
a to him, or any one else.
The Tribune says: "The bettor system
alms to benefit both employer and em
ployed. It seek the harmony of American
Industries, and not a tavago and suicidal
warfiiro between capital ami labor. Shal
low agitators do not understand It. To
I hem it seems simpler and easier to cry,
Mind and deliver!' and so to take money
out of an eiiipl iynr'1 pocket. But Ihe
great majority of American worklus'iii' n
know much morn than their professed
chiimi Ions and lelf-choaen leaders.
It I a very slginflccnt fcl that these so
called Knight of Labor, or federation Vt
trade union, never yet has oven pretend
ed to have enlisted one twenty-fifth pari of
those who live by earning wages Iu this
country. The actrml tod active member
ship of the unions la but a fraction of their
nominal membership, and their nominal
meinbetship Is but a fritron of the whole
number of workers. The demagogue and
agitators grossly misrepresent the small
number of active neratart when they un
dertake to speak for the laboring people of
the United Statci."
