Those seictiotls wheth have en )4yedtCbe benefits ot the grange and allowed ..to tnll ui way. feel the oplprztsor's yoke again. A letelrer in the field now could awaken a NATIONAL GRANGE CONVENTION-ITS ACTION ON CO-OPERATION. (Continued from last week.] Possibly. as some suggest, part of this work could be done by private dealings he tween conip;nies already formed. But this would be more like individual eflort than co-operation. It would entail numerous separate transactions, and very lulc:i 1lln plicate matters, as a glance into its details at once reveals. One company on your side. and an entirely distincet one on ours, would be an improve meat on the direct trade ot numerous in dividual companies. But this arrangement would leave us almost as much at the Iler cy of certain interested and not over friend ly parties as we have been in the past. A single co-operative company, like the Anglo-American, as now proposed, by weld in, together the strength of co-operators in our two friendly nations. recomtnmends itselt above every other plan, from the fol lowing advantages: 1. It best unites the three elements of successful trade, namely, contilence, combination and intluence. 2. It simp!iliies transactions and diminishes ex penses. 3. It secures satest and most eco nomic transfer fromt shore to shore and be yond. 4. As soctieies would share all prot its in proportion to their stock and trade in the international company. it would be more helucrative to them than a separate trade to the same extent, for their expenses would be less. 5. The risks of loss are better dis tributed. G. It can best prevent conflicts in different branches of our trade. 7. It promises, in every way, not only more uni ty of action, but a more unitorm and fuller development of every part of the business. Nor does it threaten to become a power ful and dangerous monopoly. For not only will the numerous branch companies tak ing stock in it share its profits, and thus di vide its strength, but by their right to: with draw from its support they can always check any tendency to faulty or tyrranical man agemnent. It will only serve as a val table corrective to any hurtful irregularities of trade. The whole plan is intended to fully ex emplify the admirable motto already se lected for the company's seal--," Oinjrus justitia, cuique suna ;" or, in plain English, " Justic for all, to each one his own." There is a grave fact connected with this whole matter, of which our members should never lose sight in judging or acting upon it. When our worthy master, with the approv al of the executive committee,* concluded that the interests of our order would be serv ed by sending our commissioners to Ea gland and for some time before the scheme for direct tradle, as presented by Dr. Worrall and his co-workers through their orgamiza tion, called the Atnericau. Co-operative Union at Louisville, Ky.--an organization based. no doubt, on sound principles, but formed in spite of and antagonistic to the wishes, of our grange leaders, and really against the interests of our order-was attracting great attention and likely to receive the support of a large number of our members. Every inducement was offered our mem bers to make themn disregard their fealty to our own constituted authorities, ard to secure their support of this organization outside of our order. Many, unaware of its real antagonism, were *corresponding and actually preparing to unite with it, until wa'urned by our worthy master and execu tive committee to desist. Be it said, to tihe credit of our members generally. the great miass of thenm, when tthus cautioned], let that really unfriendly scheme of Dr. Worrall's tlone. * But, observe well, they did so only for a timet--ouly because they were promised and explected solmething better. But the hearty mnmner in which they ac cepted the plan, crude and detective 's it then was, proved how earnestly they, wish, andM are determined to have, direct trade in some form with our Eanglish friends. In fact, thM great mass of our members are most anxiously awaitinhi our action at this session; all we may rest assured that, if we do not now recommend some uniform andt safe planu by which they can carry out their wishes in this respect, many of them will form alliances and adopt plans 'ar more crude and unsafe than the plan which we an11 Ow re~ifonmmepnd. \o can at: olnc give ulit and sanfe tf.or. to lthel- eflfrts Ifo thki: direCf t 'trdCe. We therefore respectfully recommend the following resolutionus : Resolved, 1. That we, the National Giranore of the Patrons cf HIusbandry, learn wit i great pleasure and cordially reciprocate the tfriendly sympathy, common purposes and prolffred alliance of our co-operative co workers in the United Kingdom. We thank them for the kind rece[)ption and hearing given our conmmlissiolner, asld the assurance of friendship hea brings us from them. We thank them for numerops pamphlets and papers presented to us, which give much rneeded information. Resolved, 2. That we accept the generous plan. as submitted to us in good faith, to form' in future, and as soon as practicable, the Anglo-Americau Co-operative Trading Company, for the purpose named in their illellmoranlldUt amnd articles of association as amelended. We believe the plan therein ma tured is feasible, and will accomplish, with least delay and expense, and with greatest security, the mutual wishes of ted friends of this movement in both countries. We, therefore, recommend the plan to those of our members everywhere, who may wvish to avail themselves of the benefits of such a trade as it proposes to establish. We can sately begin this work under present provisions. though it be at first on a m1od erate scale, with the understanding that such changes may be ma(le in future, as the light of experience may show to be nmutu ally necessary and advantageous. Resolved. 3. That we advise our mem bers, so soon as their proposed co-operative associations at home shall, in their judg inent, be prepared to take part of the pro posed American shares in this company. they agree to take such shares, and officially notify the master and executive comninittee of the National Grange of the fact. Let them decide, by the views and wants of their own locality, whether they wish to en gage in both export and import trade, or. in export trade alone. [To be continued] I EWIS' RURAL.
