The lockout at the cooper shops of
Woods & Smith and Albert Minter
ended Saturday, both firms having been
compelled to recede from their original
position and come to the terms formu
lated by the employees after the lock
out occurred. The fight was short,
sharp and decisive, and decidedly in
teresting.
Rush County reports nve Assemblies
composed almost wholly of farmers.
They have a co-operative sash and

that the number will be increased to
eighty by fall. They also have a co

Thomas A. Bell, of tJßtar Rubber

but is trying to persuade his men into
an "ironclad " agreement.
George E. Fell is still running a scab
brick yard, thus defying

is nothing out of tbordinary c
TfcSgard to the trades. Th potteries j
started up again this morng after a j.
week's shut down. Some o the pot- :.
tery manufacturers are imprting for- 1
eign made goods and hing them j.
decorated here to put on tt American

siderable comment in labor -cles, and
is having a decided tendency destroy v
the faith of the workmen in ■otection- j

WASHINGTON. W
Spe.-ial to The Lal»or Herald.
There is little to note in l«>or cir
cles here. Washington is mw com
paratively settled in regard Jto labor
troubles.
The boycotted tailors an getting
tired of the tight and it is prol able that
several of them will give in before fall.
A large number of Knights visited
Laurel, Md., on the sth of July. The
brothers of that place received the visi
tors and entertained them in fine style.
We understand all the city and town
ship officers there are members of the
Order.
Congress, in a spasm of isconomy,
has reduced the pay of apprentices.
Hon. Martin Foran's new book,
" The Other Side," published by Gray
& Clarkson, is out.
Building operations have been gen
erally resumed on the nine-hour basis.
At the last meeting of the Federation
of Trades the following officers were
elected : President, Thos. S. Denham :
first vice-president, J. W. Considine;
second vice president, John Fallon; re
cording secretary, L. H. Patterson;
secretary-treasurer, Geo. S. Dunning
ton ; sergeant-at-arms, Chas. Keller.
Mrs. Charlotte Smith has been elect
ed a delegate to the Federation of
Trades from L. A. 2G72.
The workingrnen of Washington are
generally indignant over the invasion
of the secret meeting of KAkdits in
Nu„ xoi*. It is thejopin tffitat such
legal outrages should be met ,_vith more
than a formal protest. Capt. McCul
lagh's removal should be demanded.
In the severe sentences of boyootters,
also, by a prejudiced judge, after con
viction by a class jury, can be seen the
gradual attempts to destroy the free
dom of the laboring masses. The
labor press should mass their influence
against these encroachments of capital
and subsidy of the men chosen to ad
minister the law.

Howler away—Barh-rn the bargain!
Look close in the corner yonder an<
md see Mousey in his Sunday collar
with little Mousey-Wousey widi his
£918 collar, just made to order by a
'City Father "—Mousey, Sr.! Oh,
Nepotism, hast thou no shame£ Art

If the city will only have the number

See Tadpole of the Clay disti ict, he

The Harnessmaker sits quietly chew

where he can stick another pap sucke
if his blood, whilst behind him rise
the hill of Junk in vast proportions—
the accumulations of thousands o
bands without title or salary. To add
grace and life, if not wisdom, *to die

contracted cage; though gilded! yet w
hear the harsh notes "Pret&r Po

Occasionally the idea dawns something
must be done—they are Owen the
public something, hence they wheel to
the front an Adam, the originator of
the Darwinian outcome, or fire off a
Gun to frighten the Griff-iffs away
with their cheap candy—half dirt, and
kerosene, gam—from the school
children, lest they kill them with
too much kerosene and dirt. Some
times their gravity rises to th
dignity of running electrical lights
duly assisted by learned engineers wh
not like Atlas of old, held tmworh
on his shoulders, but hold the bottom
of the earth which centres over tl
Gehenna, translated hell, being slight
under the impression their bottom
weak. However, jump on a summe
street car on Broad street, and you ca
judge of the engineering as you com
to a dead halt against one of the ele
trical posts; therefore the street-car
must run over the electrical ports, o
the said electrical posts must order tl
summer cars from the line.
One enthusi-ass did propose to build

other little slights and sights. * *

" Defunct." MS
We hays been sending this parßMr as
v exchange to the Labor of
.kron, Ohio; but we lately
■om the Akron postmaster the fißfllow
lg notice: " Labor Drsss —Defoßjnct."
Ye must have got at least tvßwenty
otic-es of the same kind conceßf ning
tlier papers of similar character
be present year. It is a strange
ept up year after year; and in vifljw of
nch experiences, one may well sur
rised that men are yet to be to
tart " labor papers.'' Weuoirotßßnow
f more than ten of them in the
Jtates that have enough income t<Bj> pay
xpenses. The working people oH[ the
ountry pour tens of millions of dcJßuars
very year into the coffers of th<' pr pers
bat forge and rivet their shackles,
rhile starving out the few men who
ry to take up their cause. It has
lways been so in this town. Av< >ncr
able stranger stepped into our cffice
the other t day to show us a copy ot a
workingman's paper that he started
here thirty-nine years ago. He jajl
spent all his means upon it, and
it to the grave of obscnßßr
c gray beard looked sad as
folded its withered leaves and
tale. It was a capital paper, too," nd
contained several of those very feat- res
which so many people think should
adorn a "labor paper,"—that is to "iy,
it had stories, miscellany, extra s,
foreign news, humor and other att e
tions ; and it was buried while yet ihey
were all in full display. Since that
time, at least forty labor papers have
been started in this city and all were
short lived, few of them holding tieir
ground as long as a year. The Voice,
which was started in 1883, with great
Eopes, held out for just five months,
ad was a costly experiment. The
Irooklyn Chronicle weathered a few
weeks last year in great straits. We
juge that not less than one huno red
thousand dollars have been sunL in
•' labor papers " in this city, since the
noble-hearted Evans failed with Yin <»'J
America forty six years ago. It is
proper to add that among the pai 'ers
here referred to, we do not include the
daily Volkt Zeitung, which is enjojk Dg
prosperity, through the
the German American working ptf__F
lis city would make a rag-tag eh ?3i
n the bob-tail history of the New 'ork
iress. They have been of all 1 mds
and qualities, big and little, cons'-rva
ive and radical, hot, cold and lui-e
--warm, some of them wholly devoted to
abor, and others making labor merely
one of their many features. In every
case, a short and meloncholy life car
ried papers and editors into everlasting
oblivion.
We regret to hear from the post
master of Akron that the Labor J'ress
s "defunct." We also regret
hat a paper of the Knights of
in this State, which has been _Hf" r
some time by an officer of the IB
is now in the act of giving BBho
ghost. We likewise regret to heaBJB
David Healy, a veteran of the K. BY*
has torn himself away from the ■■''"
tenden.t Citizen, which he founJßl a
year ago, in Albany, N. Y. Wo
nore regret to hear of the
excellent daily organ of the rBjBL..
lie Daily Citizen, which four iBJBr
of the Order started last yefH%t Tope ka,
the capital of Kansas. The past forty
days appear to have been peculiarly
fatal to such organs all over the
country; and we again suggest that
organized labor should rally around
some brave and true paper somewhere.
