KilUBIIAT, : t XAKdI6.1880
Day by day accounts come of the
strikes cf the workiognieu. Cnpiln'
ista have at all limps contendtd tbut
their buiineHi was their own, in which
their workmen have no right lo inter
fere, for they bay their labor accord
ing to tupply and demand, as they
bay the materials on which the labor
is employed. Labor is engaged in up
letting this venerable c'aiuj, and the
public lanctions the eflbit. The toll
ers contend they have mutual inter
est with the emp'c-yer, f jr when he
reduces wages he alleges it is
because his business has lo be
done at lower prices. When prices go
np, labor says, the improved condition
of yonr business juHtilles a demand for
improvement in the price of labor.
The action of both employer and labor
in lhe66 cases proves that labor has a
joint interest in the business wherein
labor is a component pirt. At this
moment this claim is urged energeli
ca'ly from the AtlaLtic to the Pacific,
and the workingmen protest that they
have no right, nor their families, to be
deprived of just part at the wealth
thoir skill and toil have produced.
Borne, the more ignorant, at times no-
company their demands with violence,
and io forfeit popular support and
often sucw m with it. The bettor in
formed go io work more tfltictually.
They keep their tempera, urge their
demands with a calmness that leaves
no opening for opponents to in
tercom police or ro'diers; and
with a firmness and a fertility
of resources that often reduces the
ttubbornest to tubmlBslon. But the
possession of this power tj overcome
and subdue, In the hands of the class
that forms the mass o! the. communi
ty, is a signal of an important coming
revolution when the wealth producer
will refuse to sulTur hunger and pen
ury when he is ready and desirous to
work but is 111. to tUrve. Tho times
are ominous, and those who insult,
oppress or cheat labor are heaping up
wrath for the day of wrath. Better to
render justice than be driven to do so
by such events a; are now taking
place, for strikes are becoming formid
able affairs.
In reply to questions from the 1 louse
of Representatives, Mr. Manning, Sec
retary of the Treasury, has responded
in his reply especially as to whether
bia policy lu the future, with respect
to silver, will be the same as in the
pait with direct, clear anl simple
etraightf jrwardneea. It is in etrong
contrast with die confusing of the sil
ver qucst'on with other to nes as seen
in the late speech of Mr. Heck. Dis
tinctly and unanswerably it isshoxrn
that the only way to bimetallism ie in
an unconditional suspension of the
silver coinagn. The unnatuiul nietu
ods by which silver is bought, and
coined at an artificial value, reduces
the dollar to a mera subsidiary coin
The attempt to accomplish the impos
Bible wnrkof putting all the silver now
coined into circulation would end in
introducing a single metallic standard
into! the country, and that a silver
one. The result would be that gold
would ciaw to circulate and be trans
ferred to European cofldra. The
Bland silver law was adopted
only ai a supposed means of establish'
ing the bimetallic system elsewhere.
It has failed to do so, and the coinage
is now carried on without its original
ing object. Coining only to accumu
late, and forcing an unwilling circula
tion, only diminishes respect for the
coin and tends to lower its circulating
value. A forced circulation leads ti
the silver dollar being taken "not for
the silver that ia in it, but for the gold
that is behind it." When there is int
gold enough to give in exchange tor it,
it will circulate for only the value of
the silver thst is in it. The Treasury
has tried by every means authorised
to get tho dollars coined int circula
tion, short cf f jrcing a receipt of them
to aa it disparage them. Notwith
standing the prominence silver has
ociupied in recent controversy, the
United States law gives to the gold
djllaronly the function of a "cnit of
v-1 lie." The act of February 1 2, 1 873,
declares the gold dollar of the United
States the nnit of value. No other
law baa changed that function of
the gold dollar, or to-day endows sny
other dollar with the 6ame attriba!e.
Its value is ths unit of value, its meas
ure is made the only measure, aad to
that measure every other dollar must
conform. Dispute nporj this, says the
Secretary, is impoeeible, "it bni roe
my duty clear." He declares.Jthere
forc, that, conforming to the spirit
aadlettwof the law's p'a'n require
ments, he will proceed in the future
as in the past.' The Secretary's paper
also shows the hopeless condition ol
silver aa things stand. Silver mono
metallism In the United S'a'.es could
not restore it; a long trial in coining
silver here has in no way bettered its
Minding. No mint in the world
which gives free coinage to gold now
does the same to silver, except our
own. The European governments
will adopt no step toward rrHtoring
silver while we continue to coin it in
a way that is leading to silver becom
ing onr sole standard, when onr gold
wonld flow into their treasuries. Con
tinned silver coinage in the United
States is an inducement to other gov
ernments to discountenance it, as it
will end in increasing their own stocks
of gold. The Secretary emphatically
iiys: "What silver monometallism
in the United States would at last
come to, undeniably, is tbe exchange
of Karopean silver againtt American
gold, and even that wonld not rule
the alue of silver to the gold level,
but wonld fatten it down finally." It
is to be wished every citizen could
read Mr. Manning's paper. It demol"
i-bes many assumptions, and estab
lishes some valuable truths.
li Lesieps is meeting with an ovi-
tion on thelathmns.but notwithttand.
ing the prevalent opinion Is that the
canal affair is in a very precarious con
dition. There is manifestly too little
work done for tbe money spent. It Is
now said that a new scheme is on
hand. The cutting so far has been of
soft earth, but there is a formidable
auount of haul rock to be excavated,
the cost of which will be very great,
Tbe new scheme said to be in contem
plation is to abandon altogether tbe
idea of digging a level canal from
ocean to ocean, and to save a large
auount ol rock cultiog by going less
deep than wis intended, and Intro
ducing locks enough to keep the water
op to the necessary bight. This would
be giving up the pre-eminent quality
of the Panama canal, would be a com
plete cjlipse of tbe fame of I3 Les
seps, and the canal would be no
better at Panama than .at Nica
ragua. Probably worse, for, though
rock tutting were saved, the
tremendous contingencies arising from
tho Cba;res river would still remain.
The idea of a grand wetarway, level
from the Atlantio to tbe Pacific, was a
grand one, and the world will cot
readily be willing to", give it up, and

Washington special to the New
York World: Dr. J. W. Rogers, the
hero of the Pan-Electric Telephone
Company, bas been described by many
newspaper writers as an Ignorant maa
and a crank. He is an educated man,
and comes from aa good family ai any
one in the South. Dr. Rogers i a
fiaiuate ol Princeton College. lie
wai graduated in the r.lan with Frauk
Blair. He is very eccentric and per
haps visionary in his financial ideas,
but npou general topics he is us inter
esting a talker as any cf his Southern
associates. He keeps up with a'l the
modern newspaper literature, and.
aside from his wtakness for writing
poetry, is very coherent and logic J
minded. He is a man in the neigh
borhood of fifty years of eg. He has
a large head, set off by a thick mais of
long, carelessly-combed hair and a
heavy, brownish black mustache and
beurd, slightly sprinkled with cray.
The doctor's firehend is high and
broad, his nose is straight, and bis
complexion that of a man who lives
well. His eyes aro very dark and glow
with an intense light when he is
excited. Each eye has the appearance
of a stur against a gleaming back
ground of black velvet. Tho doctor is
expansive, fond of gocd fellowship,
and, as he himself tnye, occasionally
Ukes a drop too much. There is one
tlunu about the doctor which should
stand to his everlasting credit, and
mat is mat ne tens no iib. JNot a
Bingle tUtement of his made concern
ing the tan-hectrio company has
been denied. The doctor U a man of
great iniaginction. He has lived a lifo
of dreams. When he found that he
had in bis cwn family an inventor and
a child of rare gift, be natnrally was
inclined to make tbe most ol him.
J. Harris Rigers, tbe inventor, is in
the neighborhood of tenty-eight or
thirty ytars of age. He is tall and
slim, with a large head, something the
shape and type ol I'ce s. It's lore
ht-ad is vory broad and high, h'u eyes
are deep set, bis nose is straight, wliile
his thin-lipped mouth is shaded by a
light brown mustache. The lower
part of bia angular face is smooth
shaven. J. Harris Rigers was edu
cated in Loudon and Paris, lie has a
good reputation as an eUctrieal expert,
and was tho special protegof l'rof.
Henry of the Smithsonian In'etitutinn.
Young Rogers hm a peif.'ct dignity
of manner, and o:;o of the most
musical of voices. He la the very
opr outn cf his father. He is ps ro
reserved and cool as his fither in ex
pansive and excitable. He in one f
those types of young men who a'enot
found outsido of the South. He is
mild mannered, quiet, almost meek in
appearance. A man who would never
provoke a quarrel, but who wonld uot
walk one inch out of bis way to avoid
one. In peace he is dove-ike; in
Quarrel he ia tigerish. His devotion
to bis father is one of the most marked
traits of his character. The two are
almoit inseparable. They never act
withont consulting each other, and if
they ever want to have a jolly time
they go ont together instead of hunt
ing np strangers. J. Harris Rogers
has undoubted talents, and if his
father bad placed him in the hands of
Northern business men instead of
Southern ttatesmen, he wonld have
undoubtedly real:a:d much more sat
Isfactory results.
The National Improved Telephone
Company bought some of Rogers's
first inventions and paid him JiiO.OOO
or $70,000. This was not all paid in
cash. A poition of it was in Arkan
sas land, but enough was realizad out
of the sale to place the Rogerses upon
a comparatively independent basts,

ton. in an old colonial house which
was built in 17t9. It was a house
once occupied by Lafiyelte. Several
colonial receptions have been held in
this quaint old place, when Bladens-
bura was a shipping port, Sailing ves
els used to come up the eastern
branch of the Potomac as far as B'a
densburs for tobacco. To-day it
one of the sleepiest and most tuuibla
down cf places. It lives entirely upon
its traditions. Parthenoi Heights,
where the Rogerses house now stand.
is upon a line of hills that overlook
Washing n. The house is in re
markably gf od order considering the
time it bs been built, uere air,
Rogers, the inventor, bos his labora
tory and conducts bis experiments.
The Kogers family is a large one,
There are two grown-np daughters,
and tiro sons beside the inventor. The
daughters are all straight, hand'
ame-loDking young laliee, who have
the appearance of people who have
lived in good society and who are well
educated. The next to the oldest boy
is a law itudent in Washington. The
various members of the family go in
and out of Washington every day with
the exception of the doctor and tbe in
vectsr. They rartly come to town.
The walla of the house at Parthenon
Heights are covered with picture,
mainly representing portrait of tbe
ancettirs of the Regies family. One
of tbe best picture in the house is by
a relebrated Dutch painter, represent-
as a stout country lover witn bis
sweetheart on his back, crossing a
brook. The look of rapture upon the
faces of the two as he treads light as a
feather with bis momtainous bnt
precions bnrden npon bis broad shoul
ders makes the pictnre stand out
among the grim-viaaged Rogerses con
ventional faces of the family portraits,

fect joy among the Rogerses album of
The Rogerses are constant subjects
of wonderment to the Bladensbnrg
people. Bladenabur, although it is
only four miles from Washington, is
as remote in reality from tbe circle of
what is going on as n it were in tne
mo3t extreme aonthwet of Texas.
Few of the residents of Bladensbnrg
ever go to Washington, and not over
half a dozen of them read tbe newt-
papers. Tbey understand generally
that the Rogerses are very smart peo
ple, and have done something by
which lightning can be harnessed np
and made useful. But just what it is
none of them appear to know. Dar-
kif s, geese, dogs and cows wander up
and down the streets of Bladensburg
in close intimacy. It is a sort of a
colored citizen's paiadise. No one
ever beard of any one doing any work
in Bladensburg. The degp, the geese
and the darkies just loaf up and down
and gabble ana barx at eacn other.
There uwd to be a little hotel here,
which bore the ambitious name of tbe
Spa House. Its spa was a beer keg
where thirttv drivers out from Wash
ington could get a drink. Near tbe
house was a spring which was sun
posed to have great medicinal quali
ties, but within the laet two or three
weeks tbe proprietor of the Spa'.House
bas died, tbe bouse is now closed.
Only one or two saloons are left open
to give evidence cf any commercial
life in this once bustling tobacco port.
The old swinging sign ol tbe Spa
House, bearing on one side a portrait
of Washington, the same colonial sign
which was put over it when tbe house
was built, is still there. It is possible
that the house may be opened again
some day, but when no Bladensbnrg
