2.VIGHTS OF LABOR.
Preamble and Declaration of Prin
ciples of this great and grow-
ING Order of Workingmen.
The alarming development and aggres
siveness of gTeat capitalists and corpora
tions, unless checked, will inevitably lead to
the pauperization and hopeless degradation
of the toiling masses.
It is imperative, il we desire to enjoy the
full blessings of life, that a check be placed
upon unjust accumulation, and the power
for evil of aggregated wealth.
This much-desired object can be accom
plished only by the united efforts of those
who obey the divine injunction, "In the
sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread."
Therefore we have formed the Order of
the Knights of Labor, for the purpose of
organizing and directing the power of the
industrial masses, not as a political party,
for it is more—in it are crystalized senti
ments and measures for the benefit of the
whole people, but it Bhould be borne in
mind, when exercising the right of suffrage,
that most of the objects herein set forth
can only be obtained through legislation,
and that it is the duty of all to assist in
nominating and supporting with their votes
only such candidates as will pledge their
support to those measures, regardless of
party. But no one shall, however, be com
pelled to vote with the majority, and calling
upon all who believe in securing "the
greate.-t good to the greatest number," to
join and assist us, we declare to the world
1. To make industrial and moral worth,
not wealth, the true standard of individual
and national greatness.
2. To secure to the workers the full en
joyment of the wealth they create, sufficient
leisure in which to develop their intellec
tual, moral and social faculties; all of the
benefit:?, recreation and pleasures of aecoci
ation; in a word, to enable them to >-hare
in the gains and honors of advancing civili
In order to secure these results we de
mand of the State:
3. The establishment of bureaus of labor
statistics, that we may arrive at a correct
knowledge of the educational, moral, and
financial condition of the laboring masses.
4. That the public lands, the heritage of
the people, be reserved for actual settlers!
not another acre for railroads or specula
tors, and that all lands now held for specu
lative purposes be taxed to their full value.
5. The abrogation of all laws that do not
bear equally upon capital and labor, and
the removal of unjust technicalities, delays,
and discriminations in the administration of
6. The adoption of measures providing
for the health and safety of those engaged
in manufacturing, and building in
dustries, and for indemnification to those
engaged therein for injuries received
through lack of necessary safeguards.
7. The recognition by i [Corporation of
trades' unions, orders, and such other as
sociations as may be organized by the work
ing masses to improve their condition and
protect their rights.
8. The enactment of laws to compel cor
porations to pay their employees weekly in
lawful money for the labor of the preceding
week, and giving mechanics and laborers
a first lien upon the product of their labor
to the extent of their full wages.
9. The abolition of the contract system
on national, state and municipal works.
10. The enactment of laws providing for
arbitration between employers and employ
ed, and *o uio.-ee the decision of the arbi-
11. The prohibition by law of the employ
ment of children under fifteen years of age
in workshops, mines and factories.
12. To prohibit the hiring out of convict
13. That a graduated income tax be
And we demand at the hands of Con
14. The establishment of a national mon
etary system, in which a circulating medium
in necessary quantity shall issue direct to
the people, without the intervention of
banks; that all the national issue shall be
' fidl legal tender in payment of all debts,
public and private; and that the govern- ;
Bent shall not guarantee or recognize any j
private bauks, or create any banking cor- ■
15. That interest-fcearing bonds, bills of
credit, or notes shall never be issued by the
government, but that, when need arises,
the emergency shall be met by issue of
legal tender, uon-interest-bearing money.
16. That the importation of foreign labor
under contract be prohibited.
17. Tliat, in connection with the post
office, the government shall organize finan
cial exchanges, safe deposits, and facilities
for the deposit of the savings of the people
in small sums.
18. That the government shall obtain
possession, by purchase, under the right of
eminent domain, of all telegraphs, tele
phones, and railroads, and that hereafter no
charter or license be issued to any corpora
tion for construction or operation of any
means of transporting intelligence, passen
gers or freight.
And while making the foregoing demands
upon the State acd national government,
we will endeayor to associate our own la
19. To establish co-operative institutions,
such as will tend to supercede the wage
system, by the introduction of a co-opera
tive industrial system.
20. To secure for both sexes equal p. "*
for equal work.
21. To _.;••;< Lv-ii me BOUTj vi \si.Aii uy k
genrral refusal to work for more than eight
22. To persuade employers to agree to
arbitrate all differences which may arise
between them and their employees, in order
that the bouds of sympathy between them
may be strengthened, and that strikes may
be rendered unnecessary.
Parties in Virginia desiring information
as to how to proceed to organize, can re
reive the same by addressing W. 11. Mullen,
Organizer, office of The Labor Herald.
