NO LABOR PARTY".
The Century thinks that tho po
litisai labor movoment la nota
transient phenomenon, but ono
Which Will continue until ita object
is attained. There can he no doubt
but that thc political labor move
ment is destined tobe a potent fac
tor in shaping the platforms of po
litical parties, but it cannot act in
tlependantly and exist as a party.
This is evident for various reasons.
Ambitions leaders ever and anon
piny upon tho passions and preju
dices of tho laboring men to accom
plish their ambitions schemes, but
lind that while the labOrres aro nu
merically able to become formida
ble rivals to the parties now itt ex
distance, they cannot act with
unanimity. The work of improv
ing tho eotidition of the toiling
masses is a great political and so
cial problem, but it cannot be solv
ed by the formation of a labor par
ty. Even though such a thing were
possible, an exclusively working
men's party is hy no means desira
ble. There arc more difficult prob
lems, grander issues, to engage
politicians than the adjustment of
the complaints of laborers.
However high the aspirations of
labor organizations, when they, as
such turn to polities they become
dupes of designing men who pan
der to them for their own profer
ment. It ts the duty Of every pa
triotic citizen to look these prob
lems square in the face-let them
be careful at the polls to givo jus
tice to all. American laborers
should learn that whatever griev
ances they have, may be correc
ted within the ranks of democracy.
No exclusive party is needed,
but the rights of all classes of citi
zens will be guarded and evils rem
edied, by a strict adherance to the
grand old democratic principles.
"When we read the pagos of our
great dally papers and scan the
events that are set dov n as the
history of this age, it is "enough to
shake confidence in the progress of
our civilization; and the question
arises, is not the public conscience
being corrupted ? Every day brings
a fresh account of some merchan
tlle failure through the rascality ol
those in responsible positions
Young men read these accounts o
defaulting bank officers, of unfaith
faithful railroad employees; the\
seo men brought to trial, and il
perchance the evidence be over
whelming, they aro convicted
Then if the convict has occupied "a
high position in society, after the
first naroxism, when the am ou ice
ment ls made, this society w del
has been outraced, melts in, a floor
of sympathetic tears, ai din a shon
time, those who shot d inaintnir
tho right, and teach the rising gen
oration the terrors of tho way ol
tlic transgressor, are engaged ii
the work of securing tho liberty ol
tho offender and reinstating him
in his former position of honor.
Public opinion ls too lax on thc
subject of crime, and after all lt U
the most powerful agency for it*
suppression. When society cham
pions wrong, by extending it> arm.?
to criminal, albeit gentlemanly
criminals, tho inevitable tendency
is to debauch tho conscience ol
young men, who are watching the
scene, Knowing that ere long the>
too must cuter the arena.
When professional men fail te
denounce rascality and crime from
policy, when legislators bend con
science to the side of moneyed cor
porations; when those who hold
tito funds of widows and) orphans
Speculate with trust funds, when
these things do not bring public
condemnation, yoting men arc
mntle to believe that tho harm b
notso much in stealing, as tho man
ner in which lt ls done.
Iti8a trite, but none thc less true
saying that there is no excellence
without labor. Mun is so consen
ted that occupai ion is essential to
happiness. Tho earth lias been made
to^yleld mun an abundance of such
things ns are necessary to sustain
life, and satisfy bis desires, but no
where can he find his wants sup
plied without some exertion on his
port. The earth will yield bount
fuly, but only when ?ho ground ls
carefully prepared and cultivated.
Nothing is moro contcmptable than
the spirit which regards manual
labor, as degrading. Work,--ceus
less activity, ls the grand low of
the universe. The world to-day is
filled With men who ure trying to
live without work nnel as Horace
Greeley once said: ''Tho darkest
hour in the history of any young
man is when be sits down to study
how to get money without earning
Tho THORN WK LL ORPHAN
I, teated in ("linton, South Carolina,
(un institution under tho caro of
bono voient people everywhere,)
wus origin a teil by the Presbyterian
? 'burch, ami is undo* the ?arv of
that denomination, but it dors not
confino it -s benefits to orphans of
any denomination or locality.
More than half its warda uro from
other States than South Carolina,
and from other denominations than
tho Presbyterian. Ten states and
seven denominations uro repre
s juted ftmo'ig its inmates.
Thc Orphanage wus first thought
of only twelve years ago and from
I tho beginning has depended f-.r its
j all upon the voluntary donations
of persons who could give only
small sums. Poor men have built
it, only a few wealthy donors being
counted among Its patrons. From
tho small beginning of a fifty cent
pieee, it now has a farm of over a
hundred aeres, three substantial
stone dwellings, a large stone
School building valued nt $8,000,
and two other buildings also of
stone, for industrial purposes; a
commited property In all of over
Thirty Thousand Dollars.
Tho number of Inmates In tho
Institution is over sixty and ill
is increasing rapidly. These are
fed, clothed, educated the year
round, and provided with all nec
essary Dupplics, nt u cost of about
$3.000 annually, all of which ls do
nated hy persons who road accounts
like this, and send their gifts to the
President: REV. WM. P. JACOBS,
A peculiarity of the Orphanage
ls, that the Orphans are retained
in tho Institution, only hy the sense
of their need and advantage. They
aro not hound in or hound out.
They do not belong to tho controll
ing Board, but come to stay ns loup;
they eau be benefited and leave
whoo titted to take caro of them

Edison has returned from Florida
with the result of his wireless tele

the way utilizing the polar circuits
as motor power, hut Edison ls reti
