CHARLES B, AYCOCK,
ROBERT B, GLENN,
In tho army of workingmen at
Homestead we are told, there are
many expert sharp-shooters, men
who have learned to use the rifle ;
for game is comparatively plenti
ful in the neighboring mountains,
and the workingmen are not so
poor but that they can enjoy a
day's sport occasionally, In fact
the employees of the Homestead
works are not at all a poor class of
men; and It is fortunate for them
and tor the cause of labcr in gen
eral that they are not. Like the
farmers of Concord and Lexington,
they have entered into the present
fight aa much for the sake of prin
ciple as because of the money in
terest at stake. Like the men of
the Revolution again, they are
willing to fight because they know
how--a fact of immeasurable im
portance in the morale of any
body of men.
The result of that ability t.o pro
tect themselves, deplorable as was
the necessity for its use, ia worth
all it has cost. As a first conse
quence we look to the disbanding
everywhere of the lawless army of
Pinkerton guards. Several Statea
have already forbidden their im
portation from other common
wealths, but that is not enough.
The Federal Government must
forbid their very existence as an
organization; otherwise it would
be quite easy for the Carnegie
Company, the Reading Railroad,
the Standard Oil Company, or any
other great corporation to recruit
its standing army of mercenaries
without leaving the borders of any
particular State., Statutes such as
have jbeeir paesAl in New-York,
Ne JeiWjl tladiana aird Massa
chusetts, against- the introduction
of Pinkertdn guards from other
sections do not prevent Mr. Pinker
ton ' from locating a gai rison in
any , pf thoee States ; they only
limit his., powers of mischief, to
noma extend, The United States
must deal with" "the treasonable
usurpation of its ri eis by or
: We : have contidered thus far
only , the practical side of the pres
ent situation, lor that is the eide
which confronts the friends of jus
tice and the rights of labor. Prac
tically the Carnegie Company has
declared war on its late employee;
it has need armed forces to over"
come tnem: ana it nas been de
feated. The workingmen have
met the illegai .riuvHders as any
commu,nity; would be justified in
meeting an assault , by banditti or
wild Indians. fSo long es the pos
sibility of, another i invasion exists,
so long the defenders, will be; war
ranted in .waging- exterminating
w ir against their assailants. " Amid
.rm8.the laws.: are silent ", so says
the law itself.- The moral aspect
of the case is lost sight of - in the
immediate question ; of meeting
illegal force with just resistance,
but morally the "workingmen are
also in the right. The quarrel is
not essentially so much one of rates
of wages, as of rights of existence.
Manager F.rick has determined to
break up the iron-workers' union.
As he said in his ultimatum; "If
this contract at $23 is not signed
by June 24, midnight, we will not
deal, with the union any more. We
will employ, each man separately,
And will pay no attention to the
The issuing of this ultimatum
was but the first step in his avowed
determination to destroy . the Am
algamated Association of work
ingmen. Nobody will . deny that
labor anions sometimes work hard
ship to indiyiduals, bat such in
stances are rare, and the benefit to
workiagmen at large far exceeds
any possible injury v to private
rights. One may concede the ab
stract right of -a State to leave the
Union, without denying the higher
right of the Union to prevent se
cession .forcibly; ; because . .the se
cession of one or , more members
would have brought ruin to all.
The .workingman's union is his
capital. - Without its protection he
is at the mercy of his employer.
The theory that a man may do
what he likes arith his own " is
not tenable in this era of great in
dustrial enterprises. Thirty years
ago a man might do . what he liked
with his own horse,with his his own
child, with his own "cuffy"; but
a better civilization has taught him
that he no longer holds that
"right." It is conceivable that a
billionaire, or a body of them,
might today become owners of a
whole city. Does any sane person
contend that ia such case they
would be justified in burning down
that city, provided Jtkey --chose to
indulge in the pastime!
The men who "own" the Home-i
stead steel works owe something to
the laws under which they have
waxed rich and insolent. The
protective tariff lias certainly been
kind to them. .Under its fostering
influence they have .been, enabled
to divide many : millions i among
themselves, i They t. may have a
legal right to shot down "their
mills, to "let the' 'works crumble
and waste away into the river with
the rains," as 'their friend Pinker
ton declareejbut the people of
Homestead can stand that if the
Carnegie Company can. What
they cannot stand, and -what the
people of the whole country will
support them in. resisting, is the
trampling on their rights by a horde
of mercenaries at the dictation bi
arrogant capital. They have won
their Lexington. They , can wait,
even if it takes seven ; years, for

Greensboro Patriot: On yes
terday while the vanguard of the
wire-pullers assembled in knots
about the hotels, preparatory to
the meeting of the Republican
Convention tosday, some of tho
leaders of the People's party (so
called) were noticed shaking hands
among them one gentleman
prominently spoken of as a candi

Burlington Herald: On Mr,
Jim Teague's farm, about a mile
from town, have been found indi
cations that point to rich deposits
of gold ore. " Mr. James Jones, an
old miner, is at the head of the
proiect, and has leased the prop
erty for a term of vears. -The
shaft has been sunk about sixteen
feet, and several gold-bearing
quartz have been taken out. This
is thought to be what will prove
a rich find.
Morganton Herald; A. great deal
more hay will be made in Burke
th;s year than ever before, Mr. J.
A. Lackev has a field of timothy
on his farm near Morganton, conn
taining twelve acres, from which
he cut a crop ot nay that was a

from 8 to 12 inches in length. Our

for the depositors of the First Nab

November. When this is paid
it will make 30 per cent, re

than a great many expected to get.
Mr. w.o. u 13. .tfooin6on, re
