WED5E8DAT, I AUGUST 11, 1886.
The war between the States empha
sised theyalorol the American ppople.
The soldiers wbo were ou tin field, by
tbe camp fire, on the march and In the
midst of ba'.tle for tour years never
weaty in dwelling upon the valor cf
the trcops oa both sides. It is only
the cowardly malignants who never
fired a aon during lbs war that would
belittle tbe heroic strngjle the Booth
made for independence. Public meet
ings have been held in the South con
demning the action of Mexico toward
American citisens, demanding repaia
tLn for recent outrages, and pledging
to tbe government the enthusiastic
support of the Southern people in the
event of war. Gov. Ireland an J the
people of Texas minlfrst great indig
nation at the frequent outrages of the
Mexicans on citizens of Texas, and de
mand not war for past insults, but
protection far the future. Tbe course
of the Sjtith on tbii ques
tion has been severely criti
cised by the Republican press, and in
a ncont interview poor litllo Dawes, ol
MassachusstU, f aid: 'The bnllicjse
South wants to precipitate another
war whipped in the rebellion they
want t j regain what they have lost by
whipping a wtnk pawer." A Federal
soldier who confionted the rebels for
four years of war and on every battle
field witnessed the impetuous valor ol
the Con'cdcrates would rcom to utt
such a eentirntnt. It is true the rebels
wore whipped not, however, by
the little non-combatant from Mas
sachute'ts, but on account of the tre
mendous odds in numbers and re
sources. The Northern population,
nearly twenty millions, was four fold
that of the strictly Confederate terri
tory! and from the border Southern
SUU'i and communities of Mlesouri,
Kentucky, Eat Tennense, West Vir-
glDia,Mrylaod and Delaware, they gat
more men and supplies for the Federal
army than the Confederacy got (or hers.
Kentucky alone furnished as many
men to the Northern armies as Masiia
chusetti. In available money and
credit the advantage of the North
was vastly greater than in popula
tlon, and it included the possession of
all the chief centers of banking and
commerce. Thou she had the pos
session of the old government, its
cspital, its army and navy, and mostly
Its arsenals, dockyards and workshops,
with all their supplies of arms and
ordnance, and military and naval
stores of every kind and the means of
manufacturing the same. Again, the
North, as a manufacturing and me
chanic' ptople, abounded in facto
ries and m rkshops of every kind, im-
mediately ava'lable for the manufac
ture of every species ol supplies for
the army and navy; while the South,
as an agricultural people, were almost
wanting In such resource'. Finally,
in the possession of the recognized
government, th". North was in full
aud free communication with all na
tions, and bad full opportunity, which
she improved t J the utmost, to import
and bring in from abroad not only
supplies of all kinds but men
as well for her service; wbie
the South, without a recog
nised government, and with hor ports
speedily blockaded by the Federal
navy, was almost entirely shut up
within herself and her own limited
resources. Among all theee advan
tages pot Biased by the North, the first,
the main, and decisive one was the
navy. Giving her all but this, and
they would have been ineffectual lo
prevent the eitablmlimerit of tho Con
fedeiaty. That arm of htr strength
was at the beginning of the war in an
eilluli'iit state, aud it was rapidly aug
mented and improvad. By it, tho
South being almost without naval
force, the North wiw enabled to sweep
and blockade her coasts everywhere,
and so, aside Irom the direct distress
inflicted, to prevent foreign recognl
t on to capture one afttr another, her
neaporti; to sever and cut up her
.o in'ry ia every direction through its
vreit rivers; to gain lod.rments at
many p lints within her territory,
from wbi'lh numerous destructive
rrids were tent out in a'.l di
rection; to transport troopi and
suppliei ti points where their
pnwago by land would ' have
been dilllcult or impossible; and final
ly, lo cover, protect, and stve, as by
the navy was so oft jn done, the di
fta ed and otherwise to'ally destroyed
armies of the North in tbe field. Alter

' have ever won such a series of brilliant
victories as that which Illuminates
forever tl e annals of her splendid ar
mies; while the fortitude and patience
of her people, and particularly ct hit
noble womor, under almost incredible
trials and sufferingr-, have never been
surpisted in the bht'ry of the world.
We do not discuss this ma ter in any
eectional spirit, but lo'.ely with the
view of defending tbe Southern peo
ple from tbe sneer that tbey were
whipped and seek to pr jc!p:U'e a war
to regain their lost reputation for

gang of malignant! can never rob tbe
Southern people of the history they
made In tbe war between the States
a war which told the world that the
children of the soldiers of Washing
ton are worthy of their sires. The
fame and glory which the South won

Immense labor organizations, strikes
ex'ending over thousands of miles of
territory, railways blocked and facto
ries closed through insurroction of the
employed against the employer are
comparatively new things among us,
and they conva'se society to its cen
ter. In England trades unions and
strikes are old and familiar things. At
first they were accompanied there by
outbreaks, riots, the destruction of
property and the smashing of ma
chinery that was accused of taking
work out of human hands. Such
scenes are no longer witnessed in
that country. Trades unions, profiting
by the knowledge experience has
brought, never resort to strikes
when other methods can be resorted
to, and they never boycott. Yet those
nnions are a power in tho country,
and have aided to raise wages and bet
ter the condition of the workingmen
in a way they could never accomplish
in thedays of riot and disorder. Their
success is principally due to the man
ner in which they have induced the
employers to co-operate with them in
preventing strikes by arbitration and
other expedients. In this country we
have not yet reached tht point where
consolidation of employers and em
ployed is possible. On the contrary,
employers in many instances are form
ing rival trades unions among them
selves, which only embitters the evil.
Some of them are requiring their
workmen to sign engagements that
they will belong to no union, thus
securing (o employers a monop
oly of unionism. All this is
bad policy. Unions properly dealt
with can bs made the friends
ofithe employers. That they are de
sirable is shown in the report of a gov
ernment commission that has just con
cluded a searching Investigation into
the cause of the depression of business
in England. The commission are of
the opinion that the legislation upon
labor questions has had no part in de
pressing trade ; it favors labor organi
zations ; also tbe report deprecates any
increase in the hours of labor, or any
diminution in the amount of wages.
Such a statement from so conserva'ive
a source is worth the consideration of
American employers. It is not by
arbitrary ac's, by importing foreign
labor, by imposing a loss of Independ
ence upon their emp'oyers, or by
making enemies of the men by whose
labor their own fortunes are gained,
that they will ootaln the success that
has been to marked in England. If
In England tbe employer has found it
necessary to cultivate friendly feelings
with their men, it is a thousand times
more necessary that American em
ployers should pursue a similar policy.
liradtlrat't has an article upon the
exports of American manufactures
which Is of much interest. Our ca
pacity for manufacture Iccreasoe every
vear, and untcsj an outlet can be
found abroad an ever swelling turplus
will be left on our hand?, and our
product will necessarily be reduced,
leaving labor unemployed with all the
misery want of work entails. During
the fiscal year that expired with June,
our exportation of manufactures made
little progress. Gain in some direc
tions was neutiuliz d by loss in others.
Cotton manufactures export incroased
as follows: In 18K5 the valun was $10,
150,2:17; in 1880, $12,3(18,943. The in
crease of quantity was 46,000,000
yards, 31 per cent., the increase of
value only f 2,200,000, 21 J per cent,
which is owing to low prices and
smaU profits. Our writing paper is
liked abroad, and the export
cf it in 18S5 amounted to
$77,418, in lSHt) to $132,227, and
increase of 71 per cent. , During the
same time the shipments and other
paper advanced 13 per cent. It is es
pecially worthy of notice that paper is
one of the least protected of the great
manufactures, yet it stands f oreign
competition the best. During the
above dates the exportation of boots
and shoes increased 8 5 per cent.;
locks, hinges, etc, 11 per cent.; fire
arms, 4 (j per cent. ; wire, 37 per cent. ;
watches, 90 per cent. During the
same time tbe following exports de
creased: Leather, 11 5 per cent.; sew
ing machines, 10; clocks, 8.25; car
riages, etc., 10; agricultural Imple
ment, 7.8 ; refined sugar, 43 per cent.
The latter is a serious loss; tbe value
of sugar exported in 18S5 was $10,071,
767; in 1S80, $10,972,729. Every year
in manufactures our power to produce
exeseds rela'ively our power to con
sume. This makes it absolutely cer
tain that, in the end, hh tariff duties
must cease in order that we may be
able to compete with other nations in
the world's markets.

able iu' prise was caused on the stree's
this tvenirg, as well as great rejoicing
among tbe young man's friend, on
the information getting out that Adol
phus Parker, tbe 16 year old train
robber, bad juat received a full pardon
at the hands of tbe Governor. Your
correspondent called at Mr. Max Par
ker's furniture warerooms and learned
from his father that the rumor was
true. Dolph was one of the lour men
who stopped the Valley Route train
just below this city in December, 1884,
and was bnt 16 years of age at tbe
time. Klein, tbe principal instigator
of tbe robbery, and who got the great
er portion of the awag,
Ccok turned Bute's evidence and is
cow in Texas. Clifford and Dotph,
both of whom just went along to see
bow tbe thing was done, have been in
the penitentiary since February, 1885,
and now only Clifford will have to
sutler for tbe fndisrre'inn of tho gang.
It is thought Co'. Me L. 1U , who
secured Parker's ralease, will also
volunteer his services in behalf of the
other culprit. The petition for Par
ker's release was signed by some of the
