Ucncr&l Manier Workman Powderly'i Lecture
General Master Workman Powdcrly, in
tho Philadelphia Journal of United Labor
publishes a tempor?neo lecture addressed
to thc members of thu Knight i of Labors.
It is entitled "ThcJustice ol My Position,"
aud is a reply to unfavorable criticism made
hy certain of Iiis ern ie ip talents on lectures
delivered by him recently In Boston and
Lynn, Mass. Mr. 1'owdorly says;
"I know I am right. I know that in rc
fusing to even tom lt e. drop ol strong drink
I was anti am right. In refusing to treat
another to that which 1 do aol believe to bc
good tor myself to drink 1 know thal I am
right. In not allow in-!; a rilinsollcr to gain
admittance into the order ol thc Knights
of Lahor I know that 1 am righi, hi ad
vising our assemblies not to rent halls or
meeting rooms overdrinking places l know
that 1 am right. I have done this from thc
day my voice wasllrst heard in the council
halls ol" our euler. My position on thc
question of temperance is right. 1 am de
termined lo maintain it, and will not aller
it one jet or tillie. 1 know that in Hie or
ganization ot which 1 am the head lhere
arc many good tuon who think, but they
would he better men if they did noi drink.
Ten years ago I was hiss.-d because I ad
vised men to let strong ?trink alone. They
threatened to rotten ogg me. 1 have con
tinned to ndviso nu n io be temperate, and.
though i li've had n<> cxpi dorice that would
qualify tuc to reader nu opinion cd' the
oftlcacy ol' a rotten egg astin ally of the
rum drinker, yet 1 would prefer to haye
my exterior decorated from summit to base
with tho rankest kind of rotten eggs rather
than to allow one tlrop ol liquid villainy to
pass my lips.
"Ten years ago the cause of temperance
was not SO respectable as il is to day, be
cause then- were rn ! so many respectable
men ami women advocating it. It has
gained ground. It is gaining ground, and
all lu cause men anil Women who believe in
lt could not he I now beaten or frightened.
Take a li.st ot' the labor so< telles of America
and thc total sum paid into ibo treasuries
from all sources from their organization to
thc present time will not exceed $5,000,000.
The Knights of Labor is the largest and
most InlluCIUial of I lieut nil. ind though 80
much has been saki concerning the vast
amount of money that Iris been ci Heeled
from the members, yet llicl" lal -uni hvied
and collected for .ill purposes np to the
present time will not exceed $800,000,
Now let us turn to thc other side. In New
York alone il is estimated thal not less than
?25,000 a day arc spent for drink. $75,000,
000 In a \\ar. if I ( .ucd more for tho
praise and approbation of labor's eilendes
than I do for Ibo iiltCl'CStJof labor I would
remain silent, Wc arc -. eking lo reform
existing evils. Wc must ll rsi reform our
Th?> Colton Movement.
From thc Nev York Financial Chron
icle's cotton article the following ligures
aro gathered relative to tito movement of
tho staple during tito past week:
Tho total receipts reached 3,598 hales,
against 2,00-1 bah s last week, ?1,5-1!) bales
the previous week, and 'f,0!l2 bah s three
weeks since; making tho total receipts
since the 1st September, 188(1, 5,100,112
bales, against 5,200,7023 hales for tho samo
period of 1883 i>. showing a decrease since
?September J, 1880, of 70,201 bales.
The exports for tho week reach n total
of 18,076 bales, of which 10,787 were to
(Iront Britain, 200to France, and 2,081
to tho rest of the continent.
Thc total visible supply of cotton, as
made up by cable and telegraph, for thc
week is as follows:
Total of C.reat britain stock 881,000
bales, total of continental stocks HS I,
800-making a total of European stocks
of 1,215,800 bales. The total visible
supply for the world is 1,808,325 bales;
of this number 1,138,525 oro American
and 000,800 Fast indian, etc.
Tho imports into continental ports
during the week wore 55,000 bales,
These ligures indicate a decrease in tho
cotton in sight of 15,278 bale;; as com
pared with thc same dato of 1880, and
a decrease of 11,000 bah s as compared
with thc corresponding date ol' INS.',.
The recoil>ts at interior towns for thc
week have been 2,035 bales, Old into
rior stocks decreased J, :'.U bah s, and
were 477,880 bales less titan nt the hame
period last year.
The receipts from tho plantai ions,
being Uto actual movement, not includ
ing tho overland receipts nor Southern
consumption, of cotton that reached the
market through the outports for tho
week were .'I.?W.S hales. Tho total re
ceipts since tho 1st of September are
5,18-1,2.X-1 bales. The actual movement
from the plantations was only 3,598
bales, the balance being taken from the
stocks at thc interior towns,
Cotton in sight.I inn- _ I waa 0,312,070
being a decrease ol' cotton in sight as
compared with last year of 110,822.
The Chronicle says, in reviewing tho
speculation in futures during thc week :
"Thc speculation in cotton for future
delivery at this market has boon feverish
and unsettled in tone, with the course of
prices somewhat erratic and irregular.
Tho reduced stocks have caused some
anxiety about contracts for this crop,
and August options advanced 10 points
from tho recent ligures namely, from
iO.00. to ll.OOo., but there was no COU
sidererablc short interest to 'squeeze,'
and prices gave way thc moment buying
ceased to bo active. Tho very favorable
reports from the growing orop prevontcd
any material improvement in the more
distant Options, although it ia generally
admitted that tho supplies will run
probably quite low in tho carly fall
months, especially in Europe"
A VERY RRMAHKAIIhB PEATI'IIR of the
annual report of tho Pension bureau is
not that thu volume of business was
greater than ever before, but that there
is an unexpended balancoof tho appro
priations for salaries and current ex
pennes; which has been turned back into
the national treasury, Heretofore tho
business of tho Pension Bureau bas been
HU deftly arranged that not a dollar of
tho appropriation ever found its way
back to the placo whence it was drawn,
It is sufficient evidence of thc generosity
of the Govornmont toward the soldiers
of the. Union that in the year just onded,
nearly a quarter of a century after thc
closo of the war, there were altogether
170,8711 claims for pensions considered
and 55,101 original pensions were grant
oil under the liberal laws now in force.
lt requires a force of nearly fifteen hun
dred people to transact this business, au
avorago of nearly thirteen thousand Iel
tors and documents being received and
?ont out overy working day, and tho
amount paid for pensions now reaching
tho enormous annual total of seventy
four millions of dol?ais. This sum ex
ceeds either tho annual civil expendi
tures or tho ordinary military and naval
expenditures at tho present time, ns well
as thc totul expenditures of the United
Htates in any year previous to tho civil

As you are aware, it has bren our cus
tom to have a representation ot' throe

wish lo urge upon the members to see
to it that each county sends a delegation
ut the same time we call your attention
to the fact that this is a mooting ol the
society, and all members are entitled to
bc present, and we hope us many will
attend as possible.
This inter-State farmers' summer en
campment meeting lias been so thor
oughly advertised that it is unnecessary
to say moro than to urge as many ns
possible to he present. It will bo tho
largest concourse ot' farmers proper thai
has ever assembled for the purposo lol
which this meeting is organized; it will
be fraught with various matters o? ma
terai interest to all fannel?, and it is
eminently proper, if ?lot absolutely uce
es- ry, (hat your society be fully repre

iigiicultur.il organization in the State
th;': has for its object the discussion and
development of purely agricultural sub
jects, and ol' matters that apply lo tho
farmer's ovory-day life.
lt is true we have the order of the
Patrons of Husbandly, under whose
auspices this formera' inter-State en

such legislation as is uceessary for his
interest be secured, ?nd to take charge
of i ?i matters of a lil;e character, which
till will readily acknowledge to he pre
eminently proper. I!ut never before in
the history of our agricultural interest
luis there la en more need of a vitalizing
current than at this time. Farmers are
day hy day bein- aroused to the fact
tba' they, too, must be progressive.
Tili ^ is tile? age of loss acres and a greater
