Strike in the chain works of the Miller Company, at Cincinnati, may lead to some extraordinary developments. Atterbury & Co., of this city, are mak ing glass ballot boxes for use in Colorado elections this fall—Pittsburg Herald. The carpenters strike on the elevator at Newport News, Virginia, still contin ues and all are warned away from there The compositors of the Evening Her ald, Hartford, Connecticut, went out on a strike because females worked for 25 cents a thousand. Wages are being cut in the Empire Mower and Reaper Works of J. F. Seib erling, at Cincinnati. Every department is said to be effected. Under the new tramp law of Wiscon sin, a man in Milwaukee has jusr, been sentenced to the penitentiary for ten months at hard labor. It is said that the miners employed by the Mineral Ridge Coal company, at * West Monterey, Pennsylvania, are out for run of the mines. 1 In drilling for coal at New Bedford, Ohio, it was found that the top vein was over five feet thick. A large coal field is being'opened up in that vicinity. Miss Susan B. Anthony, who has been on a visit to Ireland, says that English misrule has practically ruined the coun try, and is undoubtedly a mistake. In Johnstown, Missouri, a seam of coal eleven feet in thickness has been found ; this is by far the thickest seam yet found in the state of Missouri. The glass workers have issued a cir cular to tavern-keepers and druggists re questing them to use no bottles except those having the Union seal upon them. Wm. D. Kelly, of Pennsylvania, says the French workmen are better paid than the English, and that women in England perform the heaviest and rough 6st work. •* The eoid companies, in consequence of the flood of coal in the market, and in order to avoid lower prices for it, have agreed to restrict mining, beginning No vember 1. The strike at the New Castle shaft, Scammonsville, Kansas, is over, as the company has complied with the wishes of the men, by putting in the screen they desired. The miners’ conference, at Manches ter, England, representing 300,000 em ployes is demanding an ad vance of fifteen per cent in wages. The conference ad journed until December. A great political battle will be fought in New York next month on the convict contract labor question. The working men of the State are awake and vigilant. “Convict contract labor must go! The Dixon Crucible Works have not ' stopped e dav for ten years, except for repairs.

This will make a total reduction for the year of 43J per cent The employes of the Vulcan are working fqr simply star vation wages. According to the census of 1880, there 373,143 carpenters in ttys United States. This is a large field to work in, but we have “put our hand to the plow” and don’t propose to turn back. The carpen ters most be organised. And our Broth erhood will do it—The Carpenter. A strike of 10,000 miners in- lowa has been averted by arbitration, and the in crease of one-balf cent per bushel has been accepted by the bosses, in accor dance withT.be decision of the board of arbitration. The best feeling prevails between the coal operators and the miners. House carpenters in Baltimore are more thoroughly organized now than ever before. Bosses who refuse to pay union rates have found it very difficult to get good hands, and the result has consequently been, botch work and much vexation on the part of foremen and contractors. W. U. Foster, late secretary of the Federation of Labor, has removed from Cincinnati to Philadelphia. No doubt before long we will hear of a first-class Trades Assembly in Philadelphia: It was largely due to’’Foster’s efforts that the Cincinnati Trades Assembly attained its prominence. ” The oldest printerin the United States is working in Milwaukee.

The journeyman bakers of this city held a meeting at Mechanic’s hall re cently for the purpose of devising some means whereby they might secure an advance in wages and more time to oall their own, The successful action taken bv their fellow-craftsmen of Washington was cited as an example for Baltimore bakers to follow. Nothing definite hav ing been determined upon, the meeting adjourned to meet at an early date. - Baltimore Free Press.

The Second Annual of Assembly 1424' A Complete Success in Every Sense. The second annual ball of Assembly 1424 Knights of Labor took place at East Turner hall on last Wednesday eve ning, and in attendance, as a social af fair and financially was one of the most complete successes of this or any other season. There were upwards of two hundred couples in attendance and noth ing occurred during the entire evening to mar the harmony and pleasure of the occasion. The Enquirer man in looking over the vast crowd of merry-makers found it difficult to think of any of the earnest! active sons and daughters of toil who were not present. It seemed as if every body had come out and all were bent upon having a good time and contribut ing to the pleasure of all the others. The committees were all attentive to the wants and enjoyment of the guests of 1424. The music was simply perfect—so everybody said, and many were the com pliments showered upon Mr. A. Meyer and his worthy assistants; while Mr. Vogle, the prompter won the badge of superiority over all competitors yet given a hearing in the city. Supper was served at midnight and the pleasures of the evening took a respite while the wants of the inner-man held sway for awhile. Dancing was indulged in until about 4 o’clock, at which hour the ball was un animously voted a perfect success in every particular. The programme was as follows: PROGRAMME. 1.

Rogers is the republican candidate for the office of superior judge of the rity of Denver. There is a large Irish vote in this countv, and it . has rights which must be respected. In their native land they have long been sub jected to wrongs which entitle - them to the sympathy of every man and woman in the world, of whatever nationality or belief. These things are conceded by every fair-minded, God-fearing being on earth. y. This paper has been from its incipeney the out-spoken and uncompromising friend of the downtrodden people of Ireland, as of every other country, and such it will be as long as one type stands by the side of another iu its columns. On the subscription books of The En quires can be found the names of several hundred Irishmen. Proof of the fore going claim can be had from any or all of those readers. Now, while not desiring to deal in personalities in this campaign, any more than is really necessary, I feel it the duty of any individual claiming to be the. friend of any class, or any journal as suming to represent the interests of any people, to give fearlessly any facts in his or its possession which effect the record of any man who asks the suffrages of the voters of any nationality. Recognizing these truths, I desire to call the attention of the Irish voters of this county to the following abstract from the record of the proceedings of the session of 1881 of the state senate of Colorado, and ask them if they can in justice to themselves, with the knowledge of the suffering ot their mother country the paramount thought in their breasts, vote for Merrick A- Rogers, or auy man who refuses so small ’a mite as sympathy for their unfortunate country : On the afternoon of February 10, 1881, the following resolution was introduced •n the senate: “Resolved by the senate, the house con curring, that the people of the state of Colorado, by their representatives in legislature assembled, view with earnest solicitude the final result of. the great struggle now pendingin the British par liment for the rights and liberties of the Irish people; that the forlorn condition of that unhappy race is deeply deplored, and that in the common cause of. hu manity, a solemn protest is entered against the unjust and oppressive laws which have brought them to such a state of unmeasured poverty, misery and wretchedness. A. L Weston. ' “Senator Wolcott moved a suspension of the rules to consider the motion and his motion being carried, moved the adoption of the resolution. “The following senators voted aye— J. M. Freeman, L. R. Rhodes, H. R Walcott, H. H. Eddy, E. O. Wolcott, H. S. Kearney, A. 11. De France, Frank Church, E. P. Jacobson, F. T. Cochrane, C. E. Stubbs. L. Jl. Wells, A. Hall, A. I. Weston, F. C. Parish, A. Corder, Jas. M. John, J. A. Barca, J. A. Gale, F. C. Peck. —2O. “The following senators voted no—M. A. Rogers, C. Trujillo, C. Barela.—3. “Senators not voting—H. Neikirk, R. ’’Streeter.—2. I ask the Irishmen of Arapahoe county if, in the face of the above testimony, they can support Rogers for any office — much less an office in which great power rests to practically apply the cold-hearted principle shown in the above vote? The above was taken by a representa tive of The Enquirer directly from the original copy of the senate journal, and is without addition or alteration, and any and all attempts to deny it or palli ate the offense should be received with ears as deaf as those turned by Senator Rodgers to. the wailing and weeping of the suffering people of Ireland. Ah I said in the beginning I do not desire to deal in personalities in a politi cal campaign, but the action of a public official belongs to tlie public, and upon that ground the above is given as the conduct of a state senator, and the journal contains the record. A Card. To The Rocky Mountain News: Denver, Oct. 28—At a meeting held in the Eighth ward of this city on Saturday evening a man by the name ofSchenck — er something equally suggestive —posed as the friend of the workingmen, and while in such position made several statements and attempted a few argu ments which I, as one in a position and fully qualified for the work, desire to answer. This great encyclopedia of the last ses sion of the Colorado legislature makes a statement that Mr. Shackelford voted against the exemption bill in the house, and thereby showed his enmity to the workingmen. He also says that if Mr. Shackelford had voted for the bill it would have passed. This last assertion is not true, as any man with an ordinary idea of mathematics would know at a glance. The vote by which the bill was defeated stood fifteen for and fourteen against, necessary to passage twenty-five, that being a constitutional majority of the house. Mr. Schenck said that I was one of a committee appointed to look after the workingmen’s interest during the session. This is also untrue. There was no committee appointed'by the I workingmen for such purpose; but upon ! my own personal responsibility, as the ! editor of the workingmen’s organ in this city, I did work day and night to secure legislation on behalf of the laboring man and against that which was adverse to his interests. Now, as one who made it his business to watch these things day and night, without material assistance and without compensation or a desire for notoriety, I desire to make the following statement concerning senate bill No. 7 (Tilford’s exemption bill), and allow the public to judge if Mr. Shackelford’s con nection with it showed friendship or enmity for the workingman: Early in the session of the last legisla ture Senator Tilford introduced senate bill No. 7. which provided for the ex emption of sixty days wages of the head of a family from levy or execution, and the bill unanimously passed the senate, and. waa sent to the house about three THE LABOR ENQUIRER. ■“■in . , ft >*■§+ **.-*-( ‘ >wli lie foie Uie riww-of «—iw. It was put upon its final passage on the 1 tional majority of the hooee—twenty five votes. Only twenty-nine votes wen cast altogether. On the next day (Friday) 11 soU» (ibrkfoprocuresrecqiirateratiafi iof the rote bv which, the bill was de j featod, in the hop* that upon a flail vote .j of the house the tell would paaa Oat of 1 : the fourteen members Who voted against -f the bill on the day previous only one i .could be found who would at all enter , tain the idea to move a reconsideration. . That man was Joel W. Shackelford. I went to him (firs* timosl ever spoke to ' him in mv life) and asked him to move > a reconsideration of the vote. Hs, of i course, wanted to know why I asked it . I told him the workingmen wanted the law, had it in nearly every other state in the onion and were entitled to it here, t In reply Mr. Shackelford said ho had been led to believe that the workingmen were opposed to the bill, because, if it became a iaw, it would destroy their op i I portnnities for obtaining credit from the ’ j merchant. With the able assistance of Judge Tilford it was soon made elear to Mr. Shackelford that he would befriend the workingmen by securing the passaga of senate bill No. 7, and upon that un derstanding he moved to reconsider the vote. The motion was defeated, receiv ing very few more votes than was cast in lavor of the bill on the day previous. Now, 1 submit that in fece of all the facts Mt. Shackelford not only showed a friendship for the workingmen, but that he was open to reason npon the subject in which they were interested, and de ferred opinion to one who was and is of the laboring man’s ranks. The point attempted by Schenck, that Shackelford was absent from the house when the vote occurred on the lien bill, is certainly without good sense in the face of his (Schenck’s) declaration that Mr. Shackelford was the enemy of the workingman. If he had been what Schenck would have us believe, he would certainly Have been present to vote against the bill. Mr. Editor, I have always been a re publican until last fall, when I, with two thousand other workingmen of this county, took strong grounds against the dictation of Boss Chaffee, and to-day I stand as an independent voter, not tied to any party or ring, but endeavoring at all times to do what I consider for the best interests of the working class, of which lam proud to be. But the stump ers of the republican party in this county have seen fit to drag out the record of the last legislature, with reference to the workingmen. I wish to say that with the exception of one man (Mr. King, of Clear Creek,) every prominent republi can in the last legislature was opposed to the workingmen's interest. George Clark, chairman of the Arapahoe county delegation iu the house, is a republican. To the beautiful work of Mr. Clark was due the defeat of the exemption bill, he never losing an opportunity to publicly assault it or secretly connive against its passage, and I am confident the fact that the bill was reported passed, and after adjournment discovered to have been defeated, was due to the trickery of this representative republican. if it were necessary in this article to go into a review of the position of the two parties with relation to measures beariug directly on the workingman, which were considered by the last gen eral assembly of this state, Mr. Editor, I could show that, with one exception, the workingmen’s friends were democrats and their enemies republicans. BOt Ido not desire to make this a partisan article. My sole object in this communication is to show that I am entirely consistent in my support of Mr. Shackelford for sher iff as opposed to Jerome B. Chaffee, a man whom my one vote aided in trefeat ing one year ago. The statements in the foregoing are facts, and I stand ready fb make-affidavit to them and produce volumes of proof. While I am at this work, allow me to say that the writer of a communication which appeared i firth is morning’s Trib une, signed “One Who Knows,” not only talks of what he knows nothing about, but betrays plainly to “one who knows” that he is not in a position to know anything about the organizations which he so freely handles. No member in good standing in any genuine labor organization in this city weuld dare to use in public print so freely the name of the society, and we all know this. If I am correct in my opinion (and it is shared by all with whom I have talked on the subject) “One Who Knows” is a person who cannot gain admission to one of the societies of which he so fa miliarly speaks. Respectfully, J. R. Buchanan. What They Want. The monopoly journals and reviews are lauding the in-famous city built by Pullman for the wage slaves employed by him at his car works near Chicago. They would like to see “similar towns established by every large manufacturer” they say. The fambus town of Pullman is a regu : lar slave pen. No lord of the manor of the olden times ever had such supreme control over his “vassals” as the Pull mans have over the'workingmen whom they employ. The buildings are good, it is true, but the rents are enormous. The leases are the worst cut-throat leases that the sharpest cut-throat lawyer could possibly get up. The tenant who signs one signs away his last right as the mas ter of nisown home. The landlord can enter at any time and inspect the house; he can eject the tenant, without even process of law for non-payment of rent; the tenant is not privileged to make even the slightest repair; nor can he even drive a nail in the walls; if any repairs are to be made the landlord makes them, and then makes the tenant pay whatever he (the landlord) may see fit to ask. In short the workingman who enters the Pullman service and occupies the Pullman buildings is just as near a slave as a man can be without absolutely wearing a chain and having his ears cropped—San Francisco Truth. Rough on the Strikers.

Katie Putnam has been a great success during the week at the Tabor Grand and has appeared to an excellent busi ness. Those who remember the charm ing Katie of ten years ago recognise her readily now at first sight In personal appearance she hss changed little if any and her manner of acting and reading have improved with experience. Those who have not seen this charm ing little lady during the week will have bnt two more opportunities and should improve one or both of them. At the matinee this afternoon, “Lena, the Madcap,” will be presented, and thiß evening, for the first time in this ci*y, the great military drama, “The Child of the Regiment,” will be produced. Next week the Leonard Grover Com edy Company will open a week’sengage ment. This company comes highly rec ommended and under the personal di rection of the famous dramatic author, Leonard Grover, author of “Treasure Trove,” “Our Boarding House," “Uspot, the Tom-Boy,” “My Son-in-Law,” “The City.” The most popular successful plays of modern times. Direct from twelve weeks’ great success in San Francisco, at the Baldwin and California theaters. The longest mn for years in that city. The programme for the week is: Monday, Tuesday and Friday, “Lispet, the Tom- Boy;” Wednesday, Thursday and Satur day and Saturday matinee, “My Son-in- Law.” Phillips on Butler. The following letter was written by the Hon. Wendell Phillips to the com mittee in charge of the greenback-labor ratification in Boston, on the occasion of General Butler’s nomination: “Gentlemen : —I am sorry I cannot be with you at the ratification on Wednes day evening. M present lam not able to ’take part in public meetings, and I must, therefore, decline your invitation. As some of the journals pretend to find my late letter to the Advertiser equivocal, I will take this opportunity to make it, if possible, more explicit. My vote for governor will be thrown for the man who years ago urged congress to de clare that by the constitution of the United States women have the same right to vote for members of congress that men have ; and who, as governor of this state, has appointed a woman to a judi cial office, for the first time in the history of Massachusetts. The republican party has ruled Massa chusetts every year but two of the thirty years that party has existed. Never du ring all that time has a colored man been appointed to auy office of honor in civil life. I shall vote for the man who added “contraband” to our political vo cabulary, and who as governor, true to his record, has nominated a colored man to a judicial office, for the first time in the history of the state. I remember that the republican party, in it? hot youth —when it had a consci ence —did’much toward freeing the col ored man. But I see that now, the wil ling tool of capital and the banks, and with a thimble rig system of national bomds, it is doing far more to undermine our institutions and enslave the white man. Enthusiastic young mon may be hoodwinked and work in harness, blind to what they are really doing, and igno-, rant who moves them, like pawns on the chess-board. But, in fact, the battle to day is between man and money, and the real unseen leaders of the republi can party are Shylocks. Privileged and incorporated wealth is one of the two great dangers that here threaten popular institutious, and the republican party is its servant and organ. Every lover of liberty should therefore toil and pray for its dystruction. ' Consequently I shall vote for the man who, years and years ago, advocated a system of finance which would have sqved us from the bondage to the Shylocks, and would now go far to avert our danger. The clamor of the press does not af fright me. My only surprise is- that re spectable men, some of them in private station, and hitherto supposed to be gen tlemen, should lend themselves to such slanders. Bnt party spite stops at no falsehood, and angry words belong nat urally to the losers.’ J remember also the howl of rebuke and the shout of de rision with which a large share of the Boston press received the nomination of John A. Andrew for governor. But now all the popes who ever reigned in Rome could not make him more of a saint than every Boston journal affects to believe him. Our fathers rounded their 4th day of July periods with the names of Han cock and Adams. I have no doubt that boys of the next generation will shout with equal enthusiasm for Sumner and Wilson, for Andrew and Butler. For Mussachusetts loves courage—that cour age which, in defiance of an angry, and revengeful press, uncovered the infamy of Tewksbury ; the same that led the Massachusetts Eighth round Baltimore and insured the safety of the capitol. When next General Butler, with Massa chusetts at his back, moves on Washing ton, I trust he will be equally successful in reaching the capitol. Respectfully, Wendell Phillips. The first step in law mating in this country is the casting of the ballot. The ballot of the individual voter is the foun tain head of power and of law, and a stream can jise no higher than its source. Ignorant or corrupt votes are certain to result in crude or corrupt laws. We have much —very much —of this kind of voting and until it is reformed it is hope less to work for any other political re form. Bad men are not elected to office by intelligent and conscientious voters. Good men, who have studied carefully their political duty and discharge it con scientiously, have their vote nullified by one bought for a few drinks of whisky, or some cigars, or may be a dollar or two or one who neither thinks or cares what the effect his ballot may be. It will be seen that we must stand and fall to gether and to maintain enlightened and pure government ail must be elevated to a higher plane of intelligence and moral ity.—Anti-Monopolists.

It is well to make the beet of a great misfortune, but we cannot disguise the fact that, to be doomed to perpetual toil as the price of subsistence, is a very hard lot. It may develop and harden muscle, but it does not strengthen the mind or enrich the heart. A sufficient amount of labor to keep the body healthful is a blessing, and that was provided Jbr in the pristine state. Keeping and dressing the garden furnishes exhilarating, not wasting em ployment But beyond the recreation that our higher nature demands from physical exertion, such toil is a curse that sin has entailed. The mass of man kind are compelled, from the cradle to the grave, to drudge and delve, deprived of both mental and spiritual culture and to enter eternity dwarfs. O, what a cry goes up from the weary host for food to meet the cravings oftlie immortal nature. It is matter of anxious concernment to every philanthropist, that in our civiliza tion, the greed and. avariee of the few, with whom is power, has immeasurably increased the burden and want of the many. The cry of laborers robbed of the legitimate results of their toil is going up to a God of justice, from every civilized nation, and will bring his curse. The cry of four millions of colored slaves brought a tempest of war, that swept our fair laud as “with the besom of destruc tion.” May God bring ..to repentance, ere his hand of power is stretched out, these many millions more, both black and white staggering under thei “burden and heat of the day.” FIAR AND UNFAIR. t A Full List of.
