V. i'owdjrly, of the Bite of
Pentisyivaaia, who will reply to the
addre-a of wetc me of G iv. Ie, of this

in the arena of politha' influenca of

stepped forward he w.is rrcjivad with
loud applause. The Grand Mae tor
Wo kinau expressed his g'atificall in
at ih welcome which ha I be- n given
the Knights by the oeople of Virginia,
and aaore especially the poople of
liickinoid. Mr. l'owdnrly, continuing,
eaid: The men who owe allugiauce
to Ik Knights of Labor are engaged
in a coi.dict, but it is in a war of truth
aiiaini-t oiror. It is not, as many hon
estly believe and many more diehon
estly assert, a war of labor against
cipi'ul. It is a war in which the
manhood i f tlie American 1 ihorer is
llijktiag for recognition. In this wa'
it must be determined whtdi shall
mlo, monopoly or the American pac
ple, grid or manhood. Our baitles
are not fought for the purpo e of de
termining whether an Individual shall

entitled to lifa, liberty and happi

disregard of political duty and toler
ated continued political corrnp'ion will
weaken our government aud destroy
our libertlos, for the worm cm eat i s
way through the oik which storm or
tempest could not bend, and po'i ical
di honesty will strike here the 1 ght
ning could nev.-r re-cb. If this hind
was w. rlhy that br.ivo men should die
for it, it is at leaet worthy that nn
BHlilih, tboui;ht'ul men should live
and work in a grand devotion to the
ideas nf a real, a true democracy. We
come here not alone to fo't'e the
question of a dispute in regard to
wanes or hours of labor; we come
partly to study and learn some leesons
of tho bond and heart in practical
citiaauahip. We are engiged in a
work which to the thoughtful ob
forvor means more than child's play,
more than the regulations ot tia le
matters. And iUb work will
not end to.lay, nor will fie
young snt among tig live to
see It completed. To remedy the evils
we campla n of is a dillkult and dan
geioiis u udm taking. The need of
strong beatts and active brains was
never bo j;rn.t as at the present tinn
Tho Issh was stricken from the h ind
of the s'ave owner of twentj-five
years asm, and it must be taken from
the hand of the new s'ave owner as
weil. Tho monopoti' t of today is more
dangerous than the slave owner of the
paet. Monoi oly takes the land from
thii psop'o in million acre plots, it
sends i's agents abroad and brings
hordes it uneducated, d sperata moo
to this country. It imports ignorance
and sca'-ttrs it broadcast throughout
the land. It, and it a'.nnp, is reepon
tihla for evoty manifestation of an
archy that our country has witneea?d.
All men may not be wiling to admit
that this atet 'inont is tins, but when
monopoly dies no mote anarchis's
will be born into this country, for
ansreby is tho legitimate child of
uiounpo'y. While 1 condemn ami do

In concluding his apeflcb, Mr. Pow
derly said that somo of the members
of the visiting delegatiocs who were
of darker line than their brothers
could not find place in come o! the

what bad long been the custom h re,

was what made tin ejection of bat

that it might go firth tint they prac

At tlie close of las aildresry Mr.
