'o man can read the new of Btrikes
and impending strikes, of combina
tions ol labor and combinations of
capital with which the papers are daily
filled, without a fueling of apprehen
sion of an impending cngi. No man
can read the news of to-day without a
feeling of coming calamity worse than
civil war. One million of working-
. men, according to the report
of the United States Labor Bu
reau, are out of employment and
without the means of buying
bread. They have no funds to draw
from for support, and are with'
out hopo-destitute. Enforced beg
gary and destitution make desper
ate men. Beggary, enforced by cu
pidity, makes despairing men. It
hard to tlie of starvation in the midst
' of plenty. It is hard to go hungry in
a country where wealth is flaunted as
an aggressive force by men whose eh
atiou on pedestals of gold is due to
questionable, many of them unlaw
ful, measures. - Buch a man can have
no bowels of compassion, fop no rob
ber enn sympathize with industrious
labor. What he has has come to him
without manual labor and by the sub
version of conscience, and he laughs
at the bard-working and honest toile
as a simpleton. If he is appealed to
o for aid his answer is, "Let them go
and make money as I did." But a
poor man cannot buy railroads at
$12,000 a mile and water them up to
$128,000 per mile and compel the
farmers, the merchants and mannfttct-
urers to pay 6 per cent, per annum
on the water. Such wholesale rob
bery, perpetrated in defiance of the
plainest and simplest dictates of fair
dealing, are not within the working
man s reach, even if he desired to be
dishonest, but he is within the reach
of these, the most powerful combina-
tions of modern times, to be ground
into subjection to a tyranny worse
than that of the robbing barons of
1 William the Conqueror's day. Re-
V dsiecd to a mere machine, imbruted
by continuous labor, extending, as in
the case of street-car drivers, to four
teen and sixteen hours in the twenty
four, the workingman has not even time
for a moment's serious thought for
his future or that of his chil
dren. Whatever of civilisation he
may have hod when ho began
the race of life is thus being steadily
t stamped out of him, and he is gradual
ly becomingasullen savage. Outof this
slough of despondency a cry has gone
up for counter-combination, and the
Knights of Labor have been organized
to stem the broad, deep and sweeping
current of degradation and slavery
and prepare for a contest that may
end in anarchy if a way is not found
to meet the honest, earnest appeal of
the worlingtnen for a chance to im
prove their condition by lessening the
hours of labor to eight per day, and
making such 41 standant of wages as

to the lame, tho halt and the blind.
War in any guise is to be avoided,
but - a war that would find the poor
arrayed against the rich is one that
must be prevented, and it can bo. All
sense of justice has not perished out
of the country. The standards of fair
dealing have not been lost. Apply
-- these, square the differences-between
employer and employed by the rule
which Christ said embraced "all the
law and the prophets," and there can
not be a moment's doubt as to the
result. Let the rich man, the railroad
combinationist, the monopolist and the
manufacturer put himself in the place
of tho workingman, if only for a mo
ment, and strikes will become impos
sible.' Let them remember that men,
women and children must live, and
that if they do not live by work they
will by beggary or by robbery. Let
them remember that it is easier, as
well as better, to support a poor man
in work than in pauperism, and
that by lifting - him above the
umiuduw, ti ie contingencies ana ine
exigencies of life, they are increasing
the ranks of good citizenship, lessen-
ing tho ranks of crime and making
lor civilization in its highest and best
sense by raising the average of self
reliant, self-respecting and self-de
pendent men. There are large bodies
of intelligent workingmen who have
willing allies among the professions,
these have been discussing the dig-
panties between extreme indigence,
squalor and wretchedness and the ex
pense of indulgence, of palatial splen
dor and plenty. They have been ask
mg the question, how and by what
uienua can a man in less man tnirty-
n ve years amass or acquire control of
oou,uuo,UOO worth of property, a sum
greater by nearly 1100,00 ',000 than
the estimated true valuation of all
the taxable property in each of the
Btaies ot Georgia, Kansas and Maine,
and nearly as much as that of Tennes
see, of Virginia and Minnesota. How

aided efforts? In a country whose
constitution declares for the equality
of all men, the means and measures
that enable one man to absorb and
monopolize the wealth that belongs to
honest industry to an extent like this
, are the agencies of wrong and of
crime, i dis it is that lies at the basis
of all strikes; this it is that has put
labor and capital at bay, confronting
each other as thev do to-day with an
avowed purpose the one of defense
and the other of aggression, regard
less of consequences. It is as Henry
Ceorge says, the "House of Have''
and tho "House of Want" that are
occupying this attitude and arc pre
paring for a collision, and that every
where jostle and scowl at each other.
What is to prevent encounter? What
is to prevent this threatening war of
i classes? Compromise-which is bet-re-saBwewrTltin
bloodshed, turmoil, confu
sion and destruction of property. Tho

Washington, March 23. The tariff
question is getting into a still worse
tangle in the House, and the chances
now are tnat If the Morrison bill is
passed it will be by its enemies. The
reformers, being pledged to some sort
of tariff legislation, are determined to
pass a till, even if it doesn't do any
thing. There is much talk of trading,
by which the bill is being whittled
down so as to satisfy certain interests.

THE WOMAN'S EXCHANGE.
Bale Two I Be Klctdly taforeed
At a meeting of the B-vard of Man
sgers of the Woman's Exchange
March 12, 1880, it was decided that
there be more stringent enforcement
of Rulo2, name'y: Work is not re
ceived from gentlewomen whose cir
cumstances do not make it necessary
for them to dispose of their work. e.
vopi nueu uie proceeds are to be
devoted - to charitable purposes.
(Churches or other societies are not
eligible as consignors).
In the beginning it was deemed ex
pedient to place a liberal construction
upon this rule in order to test the
market, and through this means to
further the interest of need consign
ors as well as the Exchange. This
policy has been useful hitherto, inas
much as the desired experience has
oecn pined, but must now be aban
doned, ince it has fully stoc-ed the
cases and shelves of the sales-room,
which shall henceforth bo devoted to
such consignors only as nould come
strictly under tho rule above quoted.
Many consignments have been re
ceived, tho proceeds of which have
been d-voted to public charities, and
tho Exchnngo desires to state to all
such consignors that it will continue
to receive all articles for this purpose,
and trust their number will constantly
increase, but that such cases will be
the only exceptions to this rulo.

Washinoton, March 23. Rumors
have been afloa-all the afternoon of
tne serious illness of Secretary Man
ning. They grew out of the fact that
the Secretary had been taken home
from the Treasury in his carriage,
being unable to walk. Upon inquiry
at the Secretary's residence it was
stated that he had simply met with a
painful accident while returning to
nis oince irom tne meeting of the Cab
inet. He had walked over from the
White-House, and. without Wflitinor
for the elevator to take him to his
room on the second floor, walked up
the two flights of stairs. On reaching
the upper landing his foot suddenly
tusned under him, severely wrenching
his anklo. He limped into his room
without calling for assistance. Shortly
afterward Dr. Hamilton of the Marino
Hospital Service, happening to be in
the building on business, attended to
the injured man's limb, and the Sec
retary was then taken home in his
carriage. When he reached home Dr.
Lincoln, the Secretary's family physi
cian, was summoned to attend him.
Dr. Lincoln; who attended Secretary
Manning at his home, gave the follow
ing statement to an Associated Press
reporter: The Secretary was seized
with vertigo on his return to his office
from the Cabinet mectinc. He had
been working all day without takine

Zukertort resigned on his fortieth

the original terms of the contest,
should the score stand 9 to 9 it was to
