TUKSP, I Af RIt ti, 18H6.
Capital and labor a e twin forces,
which in barmoay can rule the coun
try r in dircord can destroy it. The
hatuionious onion ot these two forces
ha been too long delayed. Labor
agitators are teaching thst man who
by frugality becomes a capitalist is a
coundrel and robber, whose life ia at
the mercy ot the mob and whose
xttov- rty ii outside the protection rf
the law, while unwise capital ia teach
lngtht organiied labor is organised
communism, nothing but a combina
tion of anarchists, led by the vaga
bonds and criminals from the slums ol
great cities, who seek to destroy
homes, bnfioess, churches, be
nevolent and educational inatitn
tions. It is hoped the in
estigaMon now going on before
the Congressional Committee at
Washington will produce a better un
derstai'diug between capital and labor.
There is no danger to the country to
long a bo h forces adopt aa their mot
to tAxdirnct to law. On Thursday last
Mr. Powder y emblasjnecl this sign
upon the workingmen's banner when
he "assured the committee that if it
were found that Knights of Labor in
the West bai violated the laws of
labor, the organization would be as
ready to help puiish them hs it is to
aid them in redressing wrong. With
the organisation ti e laws of the land
stsod high above any organizations or
corporations." Thin fxprwu-ion is,
no doubt intended as a r elm It to the
violence at Fort Woith and other
places. Mr. Powdnrly believes in
ohedionce to law. He knows that the
strikers wronged and weakened them
selves by overt nets of lawlessness.
From the moment that acts of violence
begun may be dated a change in the
popular attitude tiwjrd the strikers
No organisation ever can be formed
which will convince people that one
man has a right to Interfere by force in
the concerns ot another. Every time
the strikers made a show of physical
resistance, every time that they
boarded trains, disabled engines, un
coupled cars, disarranged switches, or
otherwise interfered with the right of
the company to operate its road if it
could, they deprived themselves of
thousands of allies. The Knlghls of
Labor all labor associations have
the undoubted right to strike and re
fuse to return to work, except upon its
terms. They are the owners of their
own labor, and the law very properly
makes them the judge of the price it
should command. Like all others in
all culling, they must often ac
cept what they believe to
be Inadequate compensation for
the service rendered ; but iu acoepltng
or lejucting terms they may act in
dividually or collectively, and they
are responsible t J none but themselves
and their families for their decision.
But in thtiu deciding for themselves
they boorae law-breakerj when they
deny others thnir lawful rights.
While it is alike the undoubted right
of any to accept the terms which
others have rejected ; and those who
shall do so are responsible only to
themselves and their families. None
can hinder them except by violation
of the law that gives each and every
man the control of his own labor and
manhood, and when lawless violence
is employed to hinder any one from
accepting employment, every consid
eration of right and justice must con
demn it, and the law inns', punish it.
Organised industry has been nnjustly
denied the prjtection of law that is
freely given t3 capital, and the refusal
is excused by the violence and lawless
lessnees that is sometimes employed
by labor to abridge the rights of fellow
laborers. It baa never served any good
purpose in advancing the interests of
indualty, for lawlessness can never
command either increased respect or
compensation for labor. Thistle won't
bear dgs and lawlessness won't bring
prosperity. Pou'tfirget the rights of
The8enattls discutslug the ques
tion of abolishing secret sessions.
However that question may be de
cided now, if it be to retain secrecy
the decision will not endure, for the
people have become aroused upon the
subject, and the general opinion is
that, as a rule, tocreey is unrepuhlic.
an and ought to ba abolished. Frank
openness iu the sight of the people on
the rSr o' their representatives is
what tbe people deiire and will have.
The representative, whether in the
House or Senate, is not there to do his
own business but the business of the
people. He is not a principal, but au
agent, and as an agent his proceeding
must be open to those for
whom be acta. To undertake
to oonduct a man's buBine.'H,
then to deny the employer a knowl
edge of how his own business has
been conducted, ia a piece of effrontery
not to be endured and of which a dig
nified body like the American tSenata
ought not to be guilty. Secret ses
sions, which by a modest euphemism
are called "executive sessions," are
held when there is question of approv
ing appointments to otlice by the
President, or when the confirmation
or rejection of proposed foreign trea
ties is to be considered. In the latter
case matters outside as well as ins'de
the country have to undergo discus,
aion. Delicate details cf foreign policy
may be concerned. Matters that it
would be offensive to foreign nations
to have made the subject of open de
bate may have to be introduced. Also
there may be confidential particu
lars, which, though confided to our
diplomatists and essential to be
known to the body having tbe fata of
ihe treaty in its hands, could not pos
sibly be placed before the world. In
abort, in treaty matters finother na-
tion beeld onr own is concerned, and
we have no right to make public what
it rt quires to be ke t secret. Here,
then, is a reason for secret sessions.
But in consIJerirg ap; ointments the
nutter ia altoc' 'her c onfined to our
own country, srd is s r-rt of ita pub
lic business, and here nd therefore
there is no excuse for a secrn-y that
is inconsistent wiili hs delegated
duties of repreeenvt v.s of the peo
ple. Few men with pure tuotivfs and
e'ean bands will vote to retain se
crecy in that poition of the Senate's
duties that relates t) coLurming ap
pointing ts.
The Appeal recently gave an ac
count of the immense land stealing
that is golf g on in New Mexico, in
Wyoming and other Ricky Mountain
8taUs; and elsewhere also similar
outrages npon the property of the na
tion are committed, and wholesale
scoundrels are transformed into highly
respectable men of wealth by proceed
ings that would dlf grace a ship-load of
pirates. Pirates perform their rascal
ity openly and take their chances.
The land stealers plunder by fraud,
with the instincts of the pickpocket
and the sly, crawling meanness of the
area sneak-thief. Our President, the
telegraph ii. forms us, with his honest
opposi'ion to wrong and in the per
formance of he duties he has sworn to
fulfill, ia about to ral! the attention of
Congress to the shameful depredations
upon the property of the Ameriian
people the laud thhves are guilty of,
and to desire (hem to pass such laws
as will prevent the c rime and punish
the criminality of these invaders of
what remains of the national domain.
Again will the curses of corrupt and
dishoneet men f ill upon Mr. Cleve
land because he dares to do right.
How the political corruption 1st s, the
bribe takers, the parasites that i an-
der to dishoneBt schemers, the lovers
of deceptions and tricks and frauds
do bate Mr. Cleveland! How male'
dictions upon him fall from their lips
foaming with fury! To be hated by
the guilty and corrupt Is a compliment
that virtue has received in all ages,
and in proportion as the vials of baf-
flud scoundrels are poured on the
President's head the respect and ven
eration of the people will be acjerded
A large proportion of our working
peop'.e are busily preparing to reduce
the ilny's work to eight hours In the
course of the next mnnth. Uuex
pectedly.and probably to the surprise
of the workinguien themselves, quite
a number of manufacturing establish
monts have voliuita-ily introduced
the eight-hour rystom. This, it ap
pears, baa eet eome ot the keen'
er mim's ti thinking, and the ro
suit lias brought uirnny among
those who forsee what those results
will be: at linst so it is stated. That
main result is, that should the eight-
hour plan prevail, ai soon as Ir.tdo re
vives there will be brisk times fork'
bor. This Improvement will lead tjy
the exaction of higher wages. This
accomplished, the unemployed labor
of other lauds will swam to this. The
employer will then pick and choose
at his will, reduce wages, stop the
eighMniir system, and laugh at the
American workman. Our operatives
go' 60 relying upon "protection" to
keep up their wages. Tbey are blind
tVthe (act that it is the manufacturer's
profits, not labor, that is protected
Labor has no protection. All is open
free t ale there. Foreign labor can
come in without paying any duty at
the custom-house, and in that way
home labor will have its eyes opened.
It is s ated that many of the more
astute workingtnen see In the eight
hour policy the very opportunity that
is to free the capitalist and crush the
American workman. That crushing
can be done only with the working'
man's aid ; is the assistance the capital
1st needs in the eight-hour scheme?
The question requires serious and
intelligent Investigation.
Every year shows more and more
that tho working people of America
can produce beyond what the Ameri
can people can consume, and that the
alternative is before us of openirg for
eign outlets for American labor pro
ductions, or ot enduring disorders
such as are at present disturbing the
country and damaging its commerce.
We have, in a degree, followed the
the old Chinese policy, and are so en
gaged in "swapping jack-knives" with
each other as to partially forget the
world outside of us. As we are sow
ing so we shall reap, and before long
the bitter harvest will show itself.
Take the trade of Africa, for Instance.
That land is now thrown open to com
merce, but we are paying co attention
to what is exciting the activities and
energies of European nations.
The Germans, the French, the
English and the Dutch are
eagerly jeeing African trade we are
doing nothing to secure a share f r the
United States. Our punishment is
preparing, however. It turns out that
theso-calied Kahaiati desert ib a splen
did and very ex'en'ive grazing ground.
There tho natives with their rude man
agement are raising herds of cttle.
One native named Kainahninehero
alone has over 20,0)0 head. The En
glish are at work iu this district, w hich
is healthy and produces fruit iu pro
fusion. They intend to raise nunt in
abundance for the English market, at
lower price than the ranchmen of Col
orado, Texas, Montana and Wyoming
can offer. India and other places are
culling into our wheat trade, and now
Africa ia going to wipe out our ei ports
of cattle ; a cold prospect for the Amer
ican farmer, yet we go on changing
jack-knives smong ourselves, noticing
nothing outside. A rough awakening
is preparing for ns.

The retention of tbe Irish representa
tives in the House of Commons would
weaken the Paiiinment iu Dublin and
demoralise the Parliament in West

for the government to revive the
coercion act. If it did revive tbt act
it would only play into the hands of
the Irish desperadoes in America.
The proposition on which the govern
ment's policy depended was this: We

necessary to teach them a responsibil

Avenue Railroad company will change
its position. There is nothing left for
the employes to do but return to work
npon as favorable terms at tbey can
make. Already the places of many of
them are fliied by new men whom
they cannot displace. Thi raare many
coinpiiiii tsmade by the insn who were
compelled io go out ou a strike be
cause ordir!d to do so. They are
auxi.ua to get tack ti work. The
probabilities are that if the orders are
not iesued for them to re' urn to work
to-morrow many of them will go back
without orders.
Afl lira about the stables of the sev
eral street railroad companies are very
quiet to-night. There seems to be
little to support the rumor tl at there
will be a general tio up in tlie morn
ine. None of the men l ave jut re
ceived orders to quit work, and tbe
campanies are all running their full
complement of men, with the excep.
tion of tbe Third avenue line.
Late ti-night then was a rumor
that the strikers had threatened to ire'-

little uneaiinets as to possible events
of the comms day.

The best physicians of Memphis
sav thnt a great mnnv persons are
afflicted with a morbid condition of
the liver, nnd yet do not know what
is the mutter with them, from the
fact that the sluggish action of this
gland is not attended with any local
pain or soreness. The distinguishing
characteristic of a Torpid condition of
the Liver is usually to be found in the
sallowness of tho complexion, which
clearly shows that the biliary matter
has not hcen properly secreted from
the blood, owing to the inactivity of
tho Liver, but lias been retained in
the circulation, and absorbed by the
various tissues; thus showing itself
by the yellosness of the skin and
wliites of "the eves; more or less pois
oning tlie whole system. This com
plaint is usually attended with great
depression of spirits, "the blues, in
activity, drowsiness, sick headache,
costiveness and indigestion.
The direct action of lr. Eanford's
I.tyor IuTigonitor upon this
gland makes it effect mil in treating all
abnormal conditions of the Liver.'
