On Saturday last General Palmer spoke
to some 2,000 people at Augusta. The
town is republican and tbe greater por
tion of bis audience were farmers. It
was the birtb.lty of the general; he is 73.
lie has traveled through half the counties
in the state, over all kinds of roads and
in all kinds of weather, working often
until away after midnight. The speech
in the main was reasoning with the re
publican farmers as to why the; should
vote for the continuance of a party in
power that is so diametrically opposed to
their own interests in the matter of taxa
tion. Party feeling might be strong, but
personal interests for home and family
and friends should be stronger.
The Union says the Argus is trying to
blind the Farmers' Alliance with a quib
ble. That was the means employed by
the Union in its endeavor to make the
workmen believe that Mr. d'st had se
cured the passage of a bill in their favor.
But the A kg us has no necssity tven if it
hid the inc'ination to blind the farmers.
Their eyes are open and they can see for
tbemelv-.s They have arrived at that
stage in which they can be hoodwinked
no longer with plausible theories that the
more they are taxed the richer they be
come. They -see tbe false doctrines
preached by the Reeds and Quays and
McKinleys and tbe Blaines and all the
rest of that ilk, and they bave
begun to wonder how it was pos
sible that the scales had not
fallen from their eyes long ago.
Thy have permitted themselves to be
plundered in the past that scheming pol
iticians might live in riotous luxury at
their expense. Tbey have denied them
selves the comforts of life that their
money should be poured into the public
treasury only to be squandered in various
ways. Tbey bad fai'.h it. a party that
once had somej.honesty, forgetting that
its greatest leaders left it long ago left
it to the unscrupulous'place-hunters who
care nothing whatever for the general
welfare. There are men in the party to
day in power in Washington who are
known to be "smart" but the ruler of the
Plutonian regions has an equal notoriety
And to all this the farmers' eyes are
Pattfd on the Bark.
The Union copies a fulsome article
upon Mr.Oest from the Warsaw Bulletin,
the whole tenor of which is to sho
what a man of influence our representa
tive is. Mr. Gest, the writer says, had
been waiting his turn in tbe bouse for
several evenings, while the old timers
"were getting in their work in the line
of special legislation." None of the
others seemed to bave courage enough to
say anything, o Mr. Oest "spoke right
out in meeting," to use the language of
the Bulltin. It would seem that the
crisis of his life had come, and wading
into the imminent breach he spoke right
out, he did. Later on in the evening be
said, "Last Friday night I staid here two
hours and a half, and my name was not
reached, although it wa9 on the list."
This thrilling protest seemed to shake
the house to its very foundations, and the
Bulletin says that "two hundred or more
congressmen patted Mr. Oest on the
back." It was bis hour of triumph. Be
fore the echo of that mighty effort
had died away he was surrounded
by over two hundred congressmen all
trying to get a chance at his back. There
tbey were like bees 'round a cask, bask
ing in the presence of tbe great Rock
Islander, vieing with each other to do
him honor by rubbing him on the back
like a purring kitten. Happy moment!
Still tbe gentleman from Illinois was not
permitted to say anything and when he
asked if he couldn't say something he was
told that be would be reached presently.
"That is what I have been told before,"
responded Mr. Oest, in one of those out
bursts of indignation shown by a boy
when reprimanded at school.
When the back-tapping congratula
tions were over Mr. Oest relapsed into
his normal condition silence.

Made by the Switchman's Chief, Grand

Especially the Employer Combination
the Order of the Day.
Buffalo, N. Y., Sept. 16. The national
convention of the Switchmen's Mutual
Aid association met here yesterday with
representatives from nearly every rail
way in tbe United States present. The
convention was. welcomed by the mayor,
and tbe morning session was devoted to
welcoming speeches and responses.
In the afternoon the convention went
into secret session at the Central l.abor
Union hall. There were 110 members
present, representing nearly every state
in the Union and a number of points in
Canada After the appointment of com
mittees Grand Master Sweeney read his
annual report, in the course of which he
discussed the objects of the association
and its action daring the New York Cen
Some Reflections on Strikes.
After stating the objects of the associa
tion he proceeded as follows: "As to
strikes I desire to be explicit, in order
that our position may be fully understood.
It is erroneous to suppose that labor or
ganizations are in favor of strikes or fo
ment trouble. The very reverse is true.
The better organized a trade is, the less
trouble do the employers experience with
their employes. For the benefit of thosa
among you who do not owe allegianoe to
the Switchmen's Mutual Aid association,
as well as of the members, I may be per
mitted to state this question at some
length." lie then explained the barriers
thrown up by the organization to avoid
strikes, anp the course that must be pur
sued before a strike can have the support
of the general organization.
Points for Railway Officials.
Proceeding he said: "It is my experience
that wherever the officials will meet and
treat with the men, there has never been
any necessity of a resort to extreme meas
ures, and whenever radical measures are
taken, you may be sure that it is because
the respective railroad officials refuse to
give the complaints of the men proper
consideration. I say, advisedly, that it is
a refusal even to consider the grievance
which in most cases leads to trouble, not
a refusal to grant whatever maybe asked.
The men are not without common sense.
It is easy to negotiate with their repre
sentatives. But a refusal to treat with
them, amounting to a denial of their right
to present a complaint or desire, savors
too much of Oriental despotism to be
meekly borne by Americans, though
tney oe out mechanics and laborers. I
never knew of a working man who wanted
a strike until he was driven to it by abso
The Question of Combination.
Continning. he said: "I have said that
I will not offer any apology for the exist
ence of the Switchmen's Mutual Aid as
sociation. With trusts and gigantic cor
porations all around ns and continually
growing, wno dare say tnat labor should
not combiner How rare are the cases
where labor organizations have entered
on a conflict with capital and bave not
enjoyed the sympathy of the public? But
I would like to call tbe attention of all
railroad officials to the fact that they
make a mistake in opposing labor organi
sations, because they derive as much ben
efit from them as do the tailoring men
themselves, provided the organizations
are judiciously managed. It is easier to
deal with a railroad president than with
all tbe stock holders. Do not the mana
gers see, while all the world is running
towards combination aud simplicity of
management, that it Is easier for them to
deal with an executive head of a body of
men than with all the men? It saves
time and trouble; affords a better oppor
tunity to equalize wages and avoid jeal
ousy, removes causes of dissatisfaction
and Bee u res better service from the em
ployes. "Running Their Own Business."
"Many railroad managers fully Tinder
stand this, and assist rather than oppose
labor organizations. Those who still op
pose them display thereby a lamentable
lack of foresight. They insist on "run
ning their own business," as the phrase
goes. Tbe time is fast approaching when
they will learn that tbey are as much in
terested as are tbe laboring men them
selves in the success of labor organiza
tions. Notwithstanding the strong oppo
sition that has been made to tbe advance
ment of organized labor and the despotic
attitude of some men high in official po
sition, labor organizations are to-day
stronger and more effective and better
disci plined than at any previous time.
Labor in better united between individu
al men and organizations than ever be
fore. The onward march of organized la
bor is irresistible.
Regrets tor Official Folly.
"I cannot but regret the folly of the at
titude of some egotistical railroad officials
who think they are stronger than tbe
economic forces which are bringing about
these results, or seem to see in passing
events the works of men instead of the
results of laws as immutable as the great
laws of physical nature. These men re
fuse to meet the representatives of labor
organizations and virtually, sometimes
even in so many words, deny tbe right of
men to organize. Have we not the same
right to organize as they. And is not ne
cessity stronger on ourside than on theirs?
They could live without organization.
We would be degraded below a stage com
patible with human dignity were It not
for our organizations. The officers of la
bor organizations represent their constitu
ents as the officials of a company repre
sent the stockholders."
The Aetloa on the Central Strike.
After referring to the United Order of
Railway Employes, embracing four classes
of railway workmen, and its power, he re
ferred to the Central strike as follows:
As an illustration of the workings of the
supreme council of the above order, and
the influence and wisdom and calmnness
that govern its decisions, let me call you r
attention to the raoent meeting at Terre
Haute, Ind. There was a strike on the
New York Central railroad. Reports had
been sent all over the country that the en
tire Yanderbiit system would be drawn
into the trouble. The anxiety was in
creased when some troubles of our own
caused the grand master of the Swltoh-
men's Mutual Aid Association to depart
to tbe scene of tbe trouble. Public appre
hension, excited by report sent ont by
persons who were ignorant of the form
and purposes of our federation, grew al
most to a panic when the urand officers of
the Federated Railway organization went
to JNew York in response to an urgent in
vitation from the leaders of the strikers.
Most people expected a general strike.
and at many places business was preo-
Not Anxious to Foment Trouble.
Amidst all this excitement, and under
the influence of the pressure of universal
sympathy with the men who were fight
ing lor tlieir right to organise, the su
preme council met. The result is known.
All fears were set at rest, and the public
saw that the railroad employes were not
anxious to foment trouble, but, on tbe
contrary, endeuvored, ns they alway
win, to preserve the peace, not onlv in
abstaining from infractions of the law.
out Dy avoiding any Interference with the
industry and commerce of the countrv.
To my mind it is onlv a question of time
when all railway employes will be feder
ated in one great body. It is idle for in
dividuals to oppose thl eoasummatloa).
They may delay the foi mat act of federa

spite of all, fanned and fostered by the
irresistible march of eve ata."

Washington City, Sept 16. It was de

house yesterday that several members
were not satisfied with the revision of

ate which appeared in The Congressional
Record. Enloe, Democrat, arose while
McKinley had the floor offering tbe tariff

said he had a question of privilege to pre

bating and condemning Kennedy's speech.
A point of order was raised against its
consideration, as not such a question of
privilege as could take McKinley off the
floor, and upon the speaker's suggestion
Enloe withdrew the matter for the time.
Debate on the Resolution.
As soon as the tariff matter was out of
the way and tbe bill sent to tbe conference
committee, Enloe again arose, and was
again met by a point of order raised by
Groavenor of Ohio, who contended that
tbe time to object to Kennedy's speech
was when it was in course of delivery.
Enloe held that fee point waa bad. and
went on to say that Kennedy bad no more
right to make a personal attack on a
member of the senate, than he (Enloe) had
to state ihat the speaker was corrupt, or
that the president was a criminal. He
then sent to the clerk's desk and had read
extracts from Kennedy's speech as it ap
pears iu Tbe Record.

tnat no technicality be permitted to pre

from Ohio on Sept. S had been withheld
for revision, and had just appeared in Tbe

A Kipe Old Age.
J. H. Holcomb and wife, of Belcher-
ville, Tezu, have celebrated their flfty
flftb wedding anniversary, and are still
hale and hearty. The secret of their
long life and good health is that tbey
correct any slight ailment promptly, and
in that way avoid serious sickness. Like
most everyone else tbey are more fre
quently troubled with constipation than
any other physical disorder. To correct
this they take St. Patrick's Pills in pref
erence to any other, because, as Mr. Hol
comb says, "Tbey are a mild pill, and
besides, keep the whole system in order.
We prise them Terr highly." For sale
