On Saturday, a committee ol worblngmen from tbe Parker'iK banding dtelrlot, walled upon us as reprsT-1 Mutative of a meeting of the engineers, pumper, drillers sod laboring men, beld In that plaoe a few days since, wltb tbe re quest that w announce a mans meeting of warklagmeo to be beld at Oil City, Tues day, Oct. IS; also, that tbe clalrra of tbe workingmen be advooatrd through our cole UBS. Anything tbat will conduce to the benefit of tbat class ol men we are willing lo do. Tbere Is no leasou why the drillers and eo glneers of tbe oil region, provided the thir ty day movement Is a success and oil ad vances to 95 per barrel, should not have tbeir just claims allowed by a corresponding fborease of wsgos. In tbls dlsirlot, tbe movement appears to meet with general favor aid undoubtedly a large delegation will attend tbe Oil City mealing. A a el sat not a more Intelligent lot of men oan be formedln any other seotion f country than tbe engineers and drillers o1 tbe oil region, nor Is tbere a harder worked elate of men than tbey. It may seem to outsiders ao easy task to sharpen a heavy Iron bit or reamer over fire ol almost tbe temperature ol 100 degrees Fahreobelt, or to tura a temper screw wltb cable and heavy set ol tools attaobed, It or 18 hours out ol tbe twentyfour, but we can a sure Ibum It Is lar from an easy task, and tbe men earn all tbey get, and we certainly think er entitled lo an iucreaae of pay, provided tb producers movement now in oprllun proves a success. T Insure tb movement a success, tba workingmen should enter Into it aa a unit, lbetwia li will prove a failure. We heart iy with theia success, and advise all wbo cuu to sttt'iid the Oil City meeting.
