Columbia, S. C., Dec. 18.—Public' opinion is very strong against VV. P. Russell, state organizer of the Knights of Labor, for organizing the negro la borers in the rural districts into district assemblies of the Knights of Labor. Some flre-eating newspapers advise the farmers to "spot all white men like Russel,’’ and if they try to organize ne gro Knights of Labor, to r n u them from the neighborhood. It is consid ered as actually criminal to array the colored people against their white em ployers. The legislature has appropri ated money for the maintenance of militia, which will be called out to sup press any strikes. The senate has passed a bill defining an organized strike as a conspiracy and punishing it with im prisonment for six months and a fine of S2OO. The house will probably make it a law. The Rev. Sylvester Malone, the oldest and most influential priest in Brooklyn, says that Henry George's land doctrines will benefit the poor without doing an injustice to the rich, A recent compilation shows the total number of men m the European armies to be 3,134,304.

Pittsburg, Dec. 20.—The coke syndi cate at a meeting this evening refused to grant the demands of the workmen. A general strike will probably follow this action and 10,000 -men will be thrown out of employment. Cincinnati, Dec, 18.— The coopers’ strike is the only serious labor trouble In this city. The difficulty between the Cincinnati Spring company and forty of its employee was amicably settled Thursday evening. The men had been on a strike for three months, caused by the discharge of a Knight of Labor. Ne gotiations between the district commit tee and the employers, which have been oo'ndncted in good temper, have resulted in this fortunate adjustment, and all the strikers wijl return to work Monday. The Emerson A Fisher Carriage com pany have withdrawn their iron-clad agreement against the Knights of Labor, and the men are being taken back as rapidly as possible. A prominent official of the Lasters’ union announces that an arrangement had been arrived at between the Lis ters’ anion and district 30, Knights of Labor, by which farther complications between the two organizations will be avoided. The agreement provides that, in case of trouble between employers and either members of the Lasters’ anion or Knights of Labor, there shall be no interference of one organization with the other. Professor Thompson of Lynn, Massa chusetts, has discovered a new method of welding metals. It is done by press ing the pieces together forcibly and passing an elfctrical current through them.

Beer is a sinful, wine a Christian, in dulgence. New version ; “Give us this day our daily fleecinga!” What “visible means of support” did the Blessed Twelve Tramps of Gallilee possess ? How Grinnell would have relished a chance to plead before a Jewish jury in Pilate's court! Are not Gary and Grinnell “profes sional agitators ?” Certainly they have done more agitation than have their vic tims. , Wherever there is an “overproduc tion” of privilege, want and misery must abound. Boodle and Politics is but a weak im itation of Church and State. Either set is a social monstrosity. Election being over “eternal princi ples” have retired from the polirisal arena. The clergy are wrangling over the poor heathen’s souls, blissfully oblivi ous of their poor neighbor's bodies. Imagine Jesus in a modern church in a claw hammer coat and kid gloves, passing the contribution box to his “hands!” Judge Gary’s digestion is still good and he snores the snore of the righteous and giveth God thanks. Probably old Gariphus felt the same. When a man gets boosted into office he sees the millennium dawning, as it were, and will guarantee that a second terrm will demonstrate it. Christ was once placed between two thieves in derision. To-day the two great thieves of Christendom —Rent and Profit—uphold and embrace Christ. “Christ and a crust!” Are they suffi cient ? A thriving business is reported done By tailors in hiring out dress suits. A more thriving business could be re ported done in sweating the operatives who made the suits. T. De Witt Talmage, Brooklyn’s rev erend clown, thinks that the millen nium will be here in sixty years. And. vet he is familiar with the slums of New York! We are not warring against capital, but calling fra more exact definition of capital. It is the offspring of land and labor ; give it freedom and the contest is ours. Capital and product are the same; the distinction exists as it is had or used. The abolition of chattel slavery was the loadstone that drew John Brown. The abolition of privilege is its logical successor. This is the question of the day in a nutshell. Keep this firmly ip view when new laws or new schemes of taxation are proposed. The one ques tion is: In what do they advance this great end ? Dyer D. Lusc. Attention 3508. All members of L.

Chicago, Dec. 1. — 2421 State street. — Yonr last leader on onr $5,000 chief is good as far as it goes, but you seem to be in ignorance on some of the most important points in this sad affair. It most not be forgotten that when Powderly’s telegram was received on Wednesday there were then hanging over the men the resolutions of the packers demanding as a condition of their re-employment an unqualified re- t pudiation of their allegiance to the or der. I question whether there is an other chapter in the whole history of the labor movement where a lot of men were placed in such a predicament. On one side stood the resolutions of the. packers, saying to the men, “You can only return on condition that you renounce your allegiance to the Knights of Labor.” On the other side stood Powderly’s saying to Barrv, "If the men refuse (to return under these conditions) take their charters from them.” I have often heard of the colored preacher’s sermon in which he ex claimed : “Bredern and sisters, der am two roads in dis*world ; one leads to hell and de adder to damnation I” I always had some doubts of the truthful ness of the above sermon until my expe rience in the late stock vards strike. Turn which way we mav we were threat en! d with being placed outside of the order. I could not believe that the general master workmen would send such an order had he known of the ex istence of this resolution. I therefore asked Brother Carlton —who arrived one day after the telegram —whether Brother Powderly knew of this. Carl ton replied that he • did, as they were both discussing it the night he (Carlton) left Philadelphia. In summing -up the feelings of the strikers, it runs about as follows: - First. It was criminally reckless to send a telegram of such importance open instead of in cipher. Second. It was an insult to Barry, who was on the field and should have been consulted. It was treacherous to Carlton, who had been sent here by the general master workmen and then in tercepted by this telegram before he reached the city, thereby plainly adver tising to the world that Barry and Carl ton were two chumps in whose judgment he (Powderly) had no confidence. Third. If the telegram —which cost about s2—was all that was necessary, wby was it not sent immediately, thereby saving the enormous expense in volved in sending two members of the board, besides sparing us all from the humiliation and insults which we were all subject to. The large majority of the members here are beginning to thing that some of our leading officers are looking upon the order as their “oyster,” while the rank and file are “suckers” good enough to pay initiation fees, dues and special assessments. Fraternally, Geo. A. Schilling, The crv of humanity to-day is not for charitv, but for justice. Let us give our fellow men their just dues, then they’ll not need benevolent institutions to sup port them. A low, deep wail from the London poor is just now ringing in the ears of the world. Good men are col lecting thousands of pounds to distribute among them. That is not what they want. Give them justice and they will 'ask no man for bread. Then they will be content with their lot and the pro fessional political agitator will not find them such pliant tools in Ilia bands. Ah ! these sturdy workmen are not pau pers 1 They only ask for a fair chance to work their own way in life. Unwise chanty takes the manhood out of them. Simple justice cultivates all that is no blest and best in them. How many have been ruined by too much charitv! Justice never hurt a mortal. The tramp who comes crawling to your back door to beg a bite of bread, ready to rob you when vour back is turned, might have been a worthy citizen with his own home if he had been justly dealt with back in the years when an honest pur pose lurked in his heart. Give us more justice, even if we must have less charity, —Selected. Justly Indignant. Chicago, Dec. 22.— District Assembly 24 Knights of Labor has appointed a committee of five which is engaged in an investigation of the stock vards strike, and it is asserted to-night with seeming authority that the reason for the investigation is that District As sembly 57 (the packing house employes’ assembly) has caused a secret boycott to be issued against tnose of the Chicago packers who were particularly hostile during the late strike. The two District Assemblies, 24 and 67, embrace nearly all the Knights in Chicago and Cook county. District Assembly 24 and the Seamen’s District Assembly 136 it is said were asked to support No. 57,’s boycott. The intention of District 57 (or the pack ing town assembly) is to inaugurate, as near as possible, a general boycott against seyeralof the packers and make it permanent. The action of General Master Work man Powderly in declaring the strike off and ordering the men back at ten hours, it is asserted, has led 1i a strong local movement to have him summarily de posed from his present position. It is claimed that a special session of the Knights’ General Assembly can be con vened upon a call issued by five District Assemblies from five states. Those fa voring the move say that four other as semblies besides No. 57 can be secured beyond a doubt, and that such a call will be made. In this connection it is stated that T. B. Barry and A. A. Carlton, the two members of the General Executive Board, who were sent to Chicago to set .... THE LABOR ENQUIRER. tie the strike, left the city with bitter feelings toward Mr. Powderly, and it is hinted that Barry is now inangn rating a crusade against Mr. Powderly, Members of 2327, Yon are urged to be present at the regu lar meeting next Monday evening, as the election of officers will take place, and there is other Important business to be transacted. Organize! On every page of history stands out in blood-red letters the motto: Might is Right. At the head of every decree issued by a potentate, and of every law enacted by a class Parliament, those who see can read : Might is Right Every class in tarn mast win it rights ; and the poor, who are many, come last, because Might resides less in numbers than in organized intelligence. Therefore, Right extends as Liberty expands. But he who wants right must first have Might, in which alone his freedom is safe. For wnat he cannot take he shall not obtain; what he cannot defend he shall not preserve. Workingmen, you know vour wrongs. No one but you can right them. Let no question divide you. What to do h>wtodoit is of little moment while you can do nothing. First, be your own masters. Intelligence you have, and hearts, and knowledge enough to then make the world what it should be. Come together. Be one for all and all for one. Assert your power bv organi zation. Take the ship of state. Hold it. Govern! That is to-day the only ques tion. —New York Daily Leader. An “Ideal” Edition of Longfellow’s Poems. The dipiration of copyright is at last bringing into really popular circulation the works of some of the most celebrated American authors, whose writings the high cost of monopoly has kept within the hands of the few. Alden, the Lit erary Revolution publisher, has recently brought out a number of the best books by Hawthorne, Prescott, Emerson, Poe, Cooper and others. He has now just published a very pretty edition of Long fellow’s poems so far as copyright has expired. It is in the form which he is making famous as the Ideal Edition beautiful enough to be worthy of the name —the type being large Long Primer, the printing and binding (cloth) in excellent taste. People who have been used to buying Longfellow might suppose the price of the handsome vol ume to be a dollor or more —instead of which Alden asks only 25 cents for it! Postage, 5 cents extrh, if by mail. Alden’s last catalogue, sixty-four small quarty pages, which bre sends free to anyone (his publications are not sold by book-sellers, buy direct only), is a verit able literary wonder in its attractions.

Preamble and Declaration of Principle* of Till* Great and Growing Order of Workingmen. The alarming development and aggressive ness of great capitalists aDd corporations, un less checked, will Inevitably, lead to the pauperization and hopeless degradation of the tolling masses. It is imperative, If we desire to enjoy the lull 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 thv face shalt thou eat bread.” Therefore we have rormed the Order of Knights of Labor, for the purpose Of organiz ing and directing the power of the Industrial masses, not as a political party, for it is more —ln It are crystallised sentiments and meas ures for the benefit of the whole people, but It should be borne In mind, when exercising the right ol suffrage, that most of the objects herein set lorth can only be obtained through legislation, and that it is the duty of all to as sist in nominating and supporting with their votes only such candidates as will pledge their support to those measures, regardless 01 party. But no one shall, however, be com pelled to vote with the majority, and calling upon all who believe In securing “the greatest good to the greatest number,” to Join and as sist us, we declare to the world that our aims are: I. To make Industrial and moral worth, not wealth, the true standard of individual and National greatness. 11. To secure to the workers the full enjoy ment of the wealth they create, sufficient leisure In which to develop tneir Intellectual, moral and social faculties; all of the benefits, recreation and pleasures of association; in a word, to enable them to share in the gains and honors of advancing civilization. In order to secure these results, we demand of the State: 111. The establishment of Bureaus of Labor Statistics, that we may arrive at a correct knowledge of the educational, moral and fi nancial condition of the laboring masses. IV. That the public lands, the heritage of the people, be reserved for actual settlera; not another acre for railroads or speculators, and that all lands now held for speculative pur poses be taxed to their full value. V. The abrogation 01 all laws that do not bear equally upon capital and labor, and the removal of unjust technicalities, delays and discriminations In the administration of Justice. VI. The adoption of measures providing for the health and salety of those engaged In mining, manufacturing and building indus tries, and for indemnification to those engaged therein for Injuries received through lack of necessary safeguards. VII The recognition by Incorporation, of trades, unions, orders, and such other associa tions* as may be organized by the working masses to Improve their condition and pro tect their rights. VIII. The enactment of laws to compel corporations to pay their employes weekly. 1 n lawful .money, for the labor of the preoed- Ing week, and giving mechanics and laborers a first lien upon the product of their labor to the extent of their full wages. IX. The abolition of the contract system on National, State and Municipal works. X. The enactment of laws providing for ar bitration between employers and employed, and to enforce the decision of the arbitrators. XI. The prohibition by law of the employ ment ol children under 15 years of age In workshops, mine* and factories. XII. To prohibit the hiring out of convict labor. XIII. That a graduated Income tax be levied. And we demand at the hands of Congress: XIV. The establishment of a National mon etary system, in which a circulating medium lu necessary quantity shall Issue direct to the people, without the Intervention of banks: that all the National issne shall be full legal tender In payment of all debts, public and private; and that the Government shall not guarantee or recognize any private banks, or create any banking corporations. XV. That Interest bearing-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 ten der, non-interest-beanng money. XVI. That the importation of foreign labor under contract be prohibited. XVII. That, in connection w . .ut post office, the Government shall or ul*e flnan rial exchanges, safe deposits anw .jollities for deposit of the sayings of the people in small sums. XVIII. That the Government shall obtain possession, by purchase, under the rights ol eminent domain, of all telegraphs, telephones and railroads, and that hereafter no charter or license be Issued to any corporation for construction or operation of any. means of transporting Intelligence, passengers or height. And while making the foregoing demands upon the State and National Government, we will endeavor to associate our own labors; XIX. To establish co-operative institutions such as will tend to superoede the wage sys tem, by the Introduction of a co-operative In dustrial system. XX. To secure for both sexes equal pay lor equal work. XXI. To shorten the hours of labor by a general refusal to work for more than eight hours. XXII. To pursuade employers to agree to arbitrate all differences which may arise be tween them and their employees, In order that the bonds of sympathy between them may be strengthened and that strikes may be rendered unnecessary First Principle—Educate Yourselves 1 List of Land and Labor publications free.
