Senator Quay, clihlriuau f the re

ralahea the following letter for publi

Hob. M. ri. Quay, ettalrtuati of the
National RepH hi lean Committee,
Ererett bouse. New York: Dear
rfir: My connection with the labor
movement for the fourteen years has
made it necessary for me to be a I
remain silent. My position as gen
eral secretary of the Knigbuof
Labor lias given we an Intimate
knowledge or the various phases ol
the labor question, and from the
knowledge thus gained I do not
hesitate to say that the triumph of
the democratic party dominated by
the intolerance in the south and the
British free trade sentiment in the
north, would be the most serious
blow to organized labor It could
possibly receive. I eanuot remain
inactive in such a conflict.
Therefore, to you and your asso
ciates on the national republicau
committee as the representatives or
of the republican nartv. I oiler mv
services in any position or capacity
where they may be desired or be
thought most useful to aid In secu ring
the success of Harrison and Morton,
the representatives in this campaign
of the American idea or protection
to American labor. I hare the
honor to teinaln yours to command,
noon Feu kkflbctkix.

telle, judging from the following,
understands the political situation
in this country perfectly :
The tarlfr questions are exceeding
ly complex, aud there is no store of
information that may not be useful
in solving them. Hut there are cer
tain general facts and principles
that, applied to the controversy in
should clear
close alHdettt or the eauses of labor I in the United btates,

organization may refraiu from active
pattielpation iu politics, no much of
what organized labor demauds
must be obtained through legislation
that the individual members of the
labor organization mustaet politi
cally as in his judgement will best
aid the aims and objects expressed
lathe prinelples the organization
reprwKSHU, and whose success he
desires. In the gigantic olitlcal
straggle now begun, Hide issues
count as nothing, except to aid or
hluderoueof the principle combat
ants in the tralitieal arena How
ever sincere may lie the advocates
of the measures, to secure which
the separate iolit leal organizations
are formed, and whatever their
strengttt involved may be shown at
the itel Is, the raet remains that the
candidate of either the republicau
or democratic party will be the next
president of the United Btates.
Therefore to him, who has the
good of his country and the welfare
nf her ieepte at heart, the necessity
exists to chose to which of these two
old parties shall be given aid, either
eirrctly or iHiilreclly by voice or
vote. While it may be that neither
party orient all that labor organiza
tions desire, 1 believe that the re
publican oarty In adopting and
advocating the American system of
encouragement aud protection to
the labor and wages of our laud, is
ueanr the deelarations and desires
otorgoaizatloHs of labor than its
free trade opponeut, the democratic
party. The conflict is between the
American system, as represented by
the republican party, which would
foster and encourage the labor of our
own people, aud relaiu for them the
marcel ana wages or our own coun
try ; aud the British system as rep
remnted by the democratic party,
which would break down the bar
riers of protection and -throw open
our home market to the productions
ef fereicrn factories aud foreign
labor, thus makiug idle our own
toilers and reducing to a lower level
the standard of American wages.
When the Knights of Labor and
kindred organizations shall have
obtained iu foreign lauds, the same
commanding position and influence
enjoyed in the I'uited States, the
Inequality iu wages will disappear,
ael by levelling our wages down,
but by levelling their wages up. It
is rar better to level up than to level
down, as the larger the income the
larger the power to consume. Until
this equalization can be accomplish
ed and until the wages of labor
abroad shall equal those at home,
there must be a proper reconstruction
ef immigration, ao that our land may
the degraded labor of the bal
ance ef the world. This reconstruc
tion supplemented by a continuation
ef thorough, systematic organization
ef the labor already here iu conjunc
tion witti the Americau idea of pro
tection to American labor, cannot
fail to secure for our people the best
results of their toii, aud by our
example, lift the labor of the whole
world to a higher aud better plane
of existence.
Which ever iarty wins, something
must be done to regulate more
strictly this importation of foreign
labor under contract aud the immi
gration of pauier dependents. If
aethiug should be done, then demo
cratic success would mean not only
free trade is goods made by pauper
labor, but the importation of both
the labor and the goods; while
under free trade and goods there
may be certaiu lines of labor made
idle. These Hues must turn to
ether means of employment aud
thHs by competition coniel a lower
rate or wages to those already em
ployed therein. The Miwer of a
werklngmau to consume depends
upon what he receives fur his labor.
Unemployed, his power to consume
depends on charity or cease. I pre
fer that Arn-rica should be a land of
workers rather thau a land of thieves
and paupers.
What is true of the individual is
equally true of the nation. The
primary elements of national wealth
and national prosperity are, produc
tion, distribution and consumption.
What ever affects the power of labor
to consume, affects Uie entire Inter
ests of the nation. Whatever lowers
the wages of labor, affects Its power
te consume. Aa "average reduc
tion" ef 7 per cent on the cost of
goods Imported will not compensate
American labor for the loss of 100
per cent In wages in the lines affect
ed, and from 1U0 to 50 per centum In
wages la the lines of employment
by the substitution of the free trade,
Tor the protective system. I hold
It te be tar wiser statesmanship to
build up and retain our home
market by system that protects
America, than te commend a
market la foreign lands secured by
the wholesale degradation and pau
perization of our own people.
Every dollar ef labor value Im
ported, is by so mueh a reduction of
borne laborer' wage. This axiom
la set offset, bv the declaration that
there are mere roods la the Imported
dollar's worth. The position of the
protectionist is rather strengthened
by such a specious presentation of
the matter, because the question is
then Incidentally forced upon eyery
intelligent man. How can the

by the declaration recently made in

There is ao better organization of

The changed conditions of the
world within the last twenty years
have been in favor of protection.
That is the practical evolution ol
enlightened selfishness. The great
statesmen of Germany and France,
Bismarck aud Thiers, round it so
arter the Franco-Ueruiau war.
The changes especially nll'ect the
labor question, and among them are
these: Capital is now cheap iu this
country, because industry has been
prosperous and the public credit
maintained, aud it can be trans
ferred about the world by telegraph.
It Is interested iu protection, nut
not so profoundly as labor is. Cap

Labor has not celerity or facility
for this. It moves with difliculty,
while the products of labor are waft
ed about the world iu a wonderful
way. The cargoes of the modem
steamers are treasured by the thou
sand tons, and the Atlantic is p.-tsed
in less than a week. This applies
the protection there is iu duties
especially to labor, aud makes It
The pretense of the Democratic
party that it is the friend of labor is
abomniably false and contradicted
by the whole history of the party.
Slavery was the uegredatlnu of

cratic party Is another degredatlon.

The Cleveland campaign, marked
nut iu his December message, was
clearly, In the first place, to destroy
the duties that are protective. That
was the purpose of the plan. It was
for that the whisky tax and tobacco
lax and sugar tax aud the tuxes on
miscellanies and luxuries were to be
retained. The duties for protection
were to go to carryofrthe,,nurplus;"
and now that the surplus Is goue,the
Cleveland crowd still want to de
stroy protection. That is their ob
jective. Cleveland is a dull Copperhead
from the large town in Ke York,
furthest from the city of New York,
and his opinion possesses no value
Mr. Carlisle, elected Speaker by the
votes of Democratic Representa
tives from Republican districts, is
capable of Intelligent opinions. The
Committee of Ways aud Means dis
plays his views. His platform is
found best expressed In the Confed
erate constitution. Thecompositlnn
of the committee shows that the
programme is to adopt the Con
federate constitutional prohibitory
policy. It was that policy that gave
the Confederacy the sympathy of
the British. It wns a proposition on
the part of the Confederate Htatcn to
go back commercially to the posi
tion of British colonies. This is not
the course we prefer.
3tn roiruEKLrs good advice.
A recent number of the Journal of
United Labor contained an article
from the pen of Grand MaBter
Workmau Powderly, whlcn has the
saving grace of common sense. He
distinctly recognizes the tariff question-as
the oue to be settled at this
election. He insists that the prin
ciple of protection extends much
farther thau that, aud be Is right
about it. Xo oue claims for protec
tion, from the ruinous competition
of European cheap labor, that it is a
panacea for all the ills to which
Americau industry is liable. Its
benefits are far-reaching and many
sided, hut not universal. The point
Is that the present campaign is the
culminating point, the final contest
between tue two iioiicies, a tartu lor
protection aud a tariff for revenue,
and no other phase of protection cau
be settled, however much agitated,
at this oint Taking this central
fact of the political sttuatiou as hit
base of calculation. Powderly gives
the following wholesome advice:
"The main iBsue before the eople
this campaign is 'larilf or revenue
reform.' Every speaker for either
of the two great parties will discuss
that issue whether he knows any
thing about it or not. My advice to
workiugmen is to hear both sides,
then judge, aud at the November
election vole as conscience dictates,
and iu accordance with opinions
formed through being convinced
that the Issue for which you vote Is
The Republican party asks for no
blind following. If tlio foregoing
advice to make a careful study of
the subject is observed iu good faith
there can be no doubt of the result.
It is not a question of au abstract or
abstruce nature. On tho contrary
it comes right home to every man's
door especially if he be a wage
worker. The farmer is quite as
much benelited by a protective tariff
as any oilier class, but his benefits
are indirect aud consequently not so
easily discerned. The men address
ed by Mr. Powderly have only to
And out the wages paid in England
and on the continent to workiugmen
iu their line, and the cost there aud
here of such Maples as flour and
meat, and then tlgure on the co-it ol
transportation across the ocean, to
see just how free trade would a fleet
them. It is nut necessary to go into
the general subject. Each class of
iudustry can investigate the subject
from its own standpoint.
Iu this good work of canvasssing
the political question of the day
employers can render their men
valuable service without any inter
ference with their freedom of
suffrage. There would be no de
fense for employers who threaten
their men with discharge it they did
not vote a particular ticket, but It is
certainly commendable in them to
explain the conditions and the
probable results. For example, a
manufacturer of steel rails would do
well to make out a plain statement
snowing the inevitable ellect upon
that line of business of the Mills bill
if it were enacted. He could ea-dly
show them what reduction It would
be necessary to make in wages at
that particular mill to euable it to
be run at ail. No employer can be
expected to keep his plant iu opera
tion at a loss. Such a statement,
intelligently and honestly made,
could not fail to be useful. The op
position would assail it, aud if there
were error In the figures or flaw In
the logic point it out, but if it could
stand the test of adverse criticism
he more it was assailed the better.
Mr. Powderly does not commit him
self, and perhaps in his position it
would be iuexpedieut for him to do
so. He is, however, too well ac
quainted with the subject not to
know that all the roads or honest
