ADVOCATES OF JUSTICE. T&s Regular Meeting Yesterday Evening. Addresses by Messrs. Ferriam and De Wolf. Objects of the Order. *?he Order of the Advocates of Justice held a meeting yesterday evening in the Good Tem plars’ Hall, on the corner of Lake and Seymour streets. Owing to the inclement weather only about thirty people were present, but a znnea larger number are members of the Order, while the intelligence and common of those present showed that they made up in quality what they might lack in numbers. MU. PEBBIAiT. Tbe meeting was called to order by Worthy- Master Crowe, who asked Grand-Master Femam to state the objects of the meeting. He stated that it was apparent that some kind of organi zation was necessary, to hind man and man to gether. Mr. Perrian then sketched the advance of man from the savage to the civilized state, and read an essay of considerable length, stating tho objects of the Advocates of Justice. Ho ad vocated tho united efforts of men and women, and made an eloquent plea for the equal recog nition of women in the work and pleasures of the organization. He also urged the purchase of everything at wholesale for cosh, by agents of tho Order, who should retail at a slight increase on the first cost. Among other advantages, would bo the supply of many articles of comfort and luxury which could not now he obtained in small vil lages. Referring to monopolies, tho Grand Master said that bo held monopolies to be not only legal, but beneficial. Every individual was a monopolist, and bad a right to monopolize the fruits of bis own labor, but it was when, by ag grandizement of capital or other reasons, mo nopolies became unjust and oppressive that tbev were to be resisted and overthiown. He demanded a higher and broader education, with more ample opportunities to obtain its price)oas blessings. The tendency of education was always to elevate except wliere the chan nels through which it came, gave it a wrong di rection. Thus tho educational systems of mon archical governments tended toward centraliza tion and the degradation of labor. .Referring to the results of labor, the speaker made a detailed statement of the amount of money paid to each form of manual and profes sional iaoor, showing a total of over $7,000,000,- 000 in the United States. Mr. Peniam, making the supposition that in every part of tho coun try a scries of lodges of the Order had been es tablished, claimed that in that event the whole great class of iaboringpeopte weuldbe benefited, and that most of the great reforms would be ac complished. MR. DE WOLF. Mr.L. E. DeVToU, being called upon by "Worthy Master Crowe, made a few remarks, in which ho attacked the money system of the country. Tho banks were not corporations for tho purpose of making exchanges, but were mills whose object was to grind as much money cut of tbe people as possible. He claimed that the newspapers were published too often in the interest of these and other oppiessivo corporations. He also quoted a number of statistics with regard to tho Northwestern Railroad Company for the pur pose of showing that that Company had watered its stock to the extent of $35,000,000. At tba conclusion of Mr. DeWolfs remarks, tho Lodge proceeded to hold its regular session, which being secret, The Tribune reporter with drew. TEE CIRCULAR ISSUED. The Order has'issued the following circulars giving some information relative to its 'objects and scope: In n*j»cnße to numerous inquiries relating to the Advocates of Justice, the Temple, the national organ ization, sends this address to those seeking informa tion &a to the and objects of the Order. There are various organizations in the United States having for their object the fraternization of individual industrial classes for mutual benefit, but which ex clude other industrial (lasses from the fraternity. Such are the various trades-unions and other class organizations. Tbe Order of Advocates of Justice seeks to include ah these classes. Why sot ? Who compose the industrial or producing classes ? All who contribute, cither by the labor of the hands or train, to the actual wealth of a country or nation. Who, therefore, should bo entitled to membership in our Order ? AH persons, male or female, who perform any legiti mate service for others, either as workers or instruct ors. for which pay is receivtd. Who are the non-producers ? All those who live on the products of others’ labor, without giving adequate recom|>enbo ; those close cor poration monopolists who use the power of wealth to grind dorm labor below its real value; stock jobbers who deal in fictitious values, cause violent fluctuations in real values, interrupt ing the legitimate channels of trade; the scalpers and produce gamblers, who, by means of rings and corners, trading on unreal capital or margins, cheat, for their own benefit, both producer and consumer; those railroad magnates who, from their dens In our great cities, oppress producer and consumer by fixing arbitrary, unjust, or unequal rates for transportation. All these, to tho extent of their enormous grins, which result from the use of slock or irresponsible paper representatives, aro the most vicious class of non-producers. Those, too. who use their iU-gotten wealth simply for the gratification of their own selfish purposes ; tho politician, who uses place and power for corrupting his fellows, or who receives bribes, or perquisites, and assists in the pas sage of laws favoring the few at the expense of tho many. In fact, ail who control unjust monopolies, wbe hcir of political power, wealth, or production. All these monopolies ore necessarily unjust. Asso ciation, however, is necessary; but, to be useful, It must not only bo economical, but strictly juat to oil its members. Are, tluu, all monopolies unjust ? Ko. Monopolies are. as a rule, beneficial and necessary to civilized communities. Every individual is entitled to Ibo right to monopolize the fruits of his own labor, provided that the monopoly works no In j übUcc to another. The inventor is a monopolist; the owner of a patent is a monopolist; every corporation is w>; all societies, whether open or secret, arc monopolies; all governments are monopolies; not necessarily unjust; never no, unless they arrogate to themselves power which they have no business to wield. . . We seek to wage no war against ousting organiza tions, having for their aim the welfare of honest in dustry. • ‘Wo seek rather their co-operation in welding inl-o ono great homogeneous body, which, having for motto Truth, Bight, and Justice, wiil endeavor to bind all the industrial classes of the continent into a grand fraternity that shall strike stubborn blows at fraud and injustice wherever founu. Why do we inculcate secrecy as an essential feature of the order 7 Because unity of action is necessary to success. Tho history of mankind has shown that this unity of action cannot bo gained in open organizations ; inimical per sons canaot be kept out. In secret organizations, If such do get a foothold, they can be thrust aut and kept out ever after. The extreme igoof Masonry, Its permanence, and its power for good wherever civilization exists, is a full and com plete vindication of the lasting benefit of a ritual and . signs, known only to members. The Advocates of Justice are not wholly a social body, n or vet purely a benevolent body, simply in tho sense of assisting its fraternity in sickness or distress. It has wide and multifarious duties to perform. Its feature of secrecy, while it holds Its members with the strongest possib.e ties known to honorable men and . women, at the same time Linds them ae lightly as tho silken fillet which holds tho tresses of tho innocent maiden. We seek to secure, by a permanent fraterni ty, * ethcicncy of discipline, and unity purpose for good. • Can this best be secured by the admission of wom en, upon terms of perfect equality 7 It can be secured in no other way. It can be for no evil purpose that an organization is established where the httsuandmey come with bis wife, tho brother with his sister, from whence they may carry into their cvery-dsy life and among their fellows the principles which should actuate all true men and women. These wo seek to inculcate, socially, politically, and reli giously, , While doing this we propose to disseminate accurate ; information relating to the demand and supply of labor in the various sections of the country, that help may be procured at home and abroad, for persons of the Order seeking employment or needing help. The strong ties cf fraternity which bind the whole, tend to create a. bond of fidelity honorable to all alike, by which neither the employer nor tho employe shall be unjust to the other. Thus, while we protect by every available means the worthy, we may keep clear of the unworthy, or separate them from us if they Should gain a foothold. : In our ritual, which is impressive, comprehensive, aud yet so simplelhat it may oe easily understood, we have no regalia of dress, but use symbols exclusively. Ithds been stated of us, by those inimical to the ‘-cuius of the Order, that we were a close corporation. ■A "sufficient refutation to this will be found In the Con stitutiou. It hss been sought to rioicnle ns by saying that we were trying to take in the whole universe. We have already stated that we do seek to bind into a great fraternity all industrial workers, whether with mueco or br-ifn, or both. W© do not fear that class of “anli monnpoiists" who are seeking to buildup vicious mo nopolies while crying monopoly. ? We desire, bv co-opcraticu and a unity of purpose among the members of the Order, composed of all who render Industry productive, to assist each other in making it still more so, and also In rendering vice amenable to law, whether it be found in the low dens of ou' cities or among those whose position in life should havp taught them to set an example for good to others. We e jiicll the co-operation of women, well knowing that Wdboat nuchbeip our success will be neither p«r manent nor decided; we enjoin secrecy, because every individual and every occupation in life finds a certain amount of secrecy necessary in their intercouae witn others ; nevertheless, we have no secrets pcrtaimng to the Order ■which may not bo freely communicated to the entire fraternity of the Order. _ .. We do not claim to be offshoots, nor to have the en tire sympathy of, any other organisation, except eo far ss they may run in parallel lines with us, but we do hold that our organization is broad enough to merit tho unqualified approbation of all honest men and women who believe in tho true brotherhood of humanity, and who would willing!} extend a helping hand to those who might be worthy of assistance; who believe in the necessity ox reform and that bv continued and persistent effort in the right direction groat public wrongs may be right ed thus securing to all equal and exact justice ac cording to the real merits of the individual. In short, some of the principal aims and objects may bo sum . xned up as follows: X. —Co-operation in buying and selling by the em ployment of trained agents, thus doing away with the horde of Individuals employed outside of legitimate business, and who are engaged in scalping from the producer the fruits of real labor. U. The ennoblement of labor and the fraternity of the producing classes. Hl.—The lightening of labor by diffusing a better knowledge of its aims. IV.—Mutual instrudlon, nodal culture, and mental and moral development, V. Mutual relief in sickness and adversity. Vl,—The overthrow of the credit system. TIL—Tho prevention of litigation as far as possible, Vlll,—Building up and fostering homo industries, XX.—Bringing the purchaser and consumer zaoro nearly together. . X.—Mutual protection against unjust and oppress ive monopolies. How may this be brought about 7 .By giving notice to the Grand Secretary of the Tem ple, or, when there is a Chapter organized In a State, then to the Secretary of the Chapter, that a dispensa tion to organize a Lodge is required. How is a Lodge organized? By the application in writing of twelve or more per sons, of whom at least three must be females. How is the work to be spread? Through the efforts of every individual of the Or der, and especially by the efforts of tho Grand Secre tary, the General Deputies, tho Special Deputies, and ex officio Deputies; tho Counsellor? of Lodges being ex officio Deputies, who are all authorized to organize Lodges under tho authority of the Grand Master of tho Temple. Who aro Special Deputies ? Persons appointed with jurisdiction in specified dis tricts within a State. Who are General Deputies 7 Persons appointed with jurisdiction in one or more States. Who ia the Grand Deputy? Tho Grand Counsellor of the Temple, who alone is authorized to organize the Chapters or State Lodges. CURRENT COMMENT. ‘*A GOOD WOBK.” From the Jlltnoie ataU A Good Work.— The Chicago Tribune is doing a noble work in attacking the so-called re ligious papers, such as tuo AdcGncc, the inte rior, and the Independent, for publishing, as they notoriously do, swindling advertisements. It was through tho columns of the last-named ebeet that tho great Northern Pacific Railroad bond-swindle was successfully carried on. Clergymen, clergymen’s widows, school-teachers, and such others of the church-paper-bolieviug classes as had saved a little money, put it into tho swindle which tho Independent recommended. And now these papers teem with advertisements and notices of swindles which aro smaller than that in amount, but equally groat in villainy. Ail sorts of quack-medicince, all kinds of persons who “ want agents,” use the advertising and editorial columtia of those pa peis at so much a lino, and aro therefore enabled to reach the very class who want “ genteel employment,” and who, iu consequence of their peculiar views, are the most open to the as sault of the swindlers. vre hope Tar Tribute will go straight on and show np these papers until they shall cease a pursuit which is a disgrace to jqurualism and a blot on the organizations they pretend to rep resent. “ WHITED SEPULCHRES.” From the Ear trills (III.) franacrivt. Whitened Sepulchres. —The interior, JVbrtfi westem Christian Advocate, and Advance,— a trinity of religious prston&ioo to parity,—hare joined in a crusade against The Chicago Trib une for publishing immoral advertisements. The Tribune’s several editorials replying to these charges carry tbe war into Africa, and these journals aro shown to bo much deeper in the mud than The Tribune is in the mire. “ THE ABLEST AND STAUNCHEST PAPER,” From the Frcevort (HL) bulletin. It is really refreshing to read the strictures of The Tribune on the religious press of that city. Its immoral advertisements very justly call forth tbe indignation of tho “ ablest and etaunch- Cbt paper on financial questions iu the journal istic world.” “a vigorous and telling attack.” From Uic bay City (i/ic/i.) Trilunc. The Chicago Tribune makes a vigorous and telling attack on the Interior , and certain other religious papers, for publishing qiack-msdicmo and other swindling advertisements, even after they have been advised of tho character of such advertisements. This is a crying evil of tho re ligious press, oven more so than of the secular, — chough most of tho latter admit such, advertise ments far too readily. THE MOTE AND THE BEAM. From the iiartjord (Conn.) Fust. It is getting to bo a notorious fact that cer tain so-called religions papers are run on puiely commercial principles, and that almost anything that will pa/ can secure a place in their columns and editorial commendation. Financial and medical humbugs choose these papers for the reason that their readers are less likely to sus pect their managers of mercenary motives in commending worthless investments and nos trums to their subscribers. The Chicago Interior has recently put on a now editor, and ho has taken occasion to denounce this practice of his contemporaries in good set phrase. Among other things bo says: Religious papers should be held responsible for the advertisements appearing iu their columns to a certain extent, A physician who advertises to cure consump tion or cancer is a quack and an impostor, and the edi tor of a religious paper Tnoirs xt. Bat the new editor had neglected tho first rule of his craft, to “ read you own paper,” and had neglected to order out the advertisements which simultaneously appeared in its columns, of one quack who professed to be able to cure cancer, and of another who promised to furnish a euro cure for consumption for “ two stamps.” Very naturally tho worldly editors of Chicago are call ing tho now hand to an account, and making it quite lively for him. CHICAGO AND TEXAS. From the Uostcn Glob: The Chicago press has begun to appreciate the value of the Texan and remote Sontliwea tern trade, and is urging upon the merchants of that city the poseibihty aud advisability of competing with us therefor, undismayed by onr advantages of situation and possession. At tho same time, tho Now York and Boston houses have been com pelled to establish agencies at Chicago for tho display of samples and reception of orders, in order to compete on equal terms with the local firms for the trade of the larger country-centres of purchase and distribution, which have hither to dealt with New York direct. All these are so many more reasons for activity on our part. Eternal enterprise is tho price of commercial supremacy. THE PROTEST OF VIRTUE. To the EdUcr of The Ch.'caao Tribune: Sir : Allow me a word as to tho action of the Beard of Health and ocher officials in regard to the Social EviL If ever a body of men were serving Satan, theso raon are in desiring tho power to license tho sin,—tho very breeder of tho Bufferings they nroposo to regulate. Hew arc we to legislate ono evil in tho form of intemperance, and/or another in a more loath some form ? Let all the virtue in this city raise a voice against it. Lot parity in its blessing be strong against vice weak in its corruption.. For one, I wish to thank you for the stand you make against it, and pray you to not cease until it is defeated. A Spiritual Oil Company, Credulity led to tho formation of tho Mount Davidson Oil Company, in Colorado, about a year ago. Mrs. Winters, a opirit medium of Virginia City, told Jco Grigg that Mount David son was a vast natural reservoir of oil, holding millions of gallons of valuable grease. Joo got fiorao tools and began boring, working only at night for fear of discovery, and always under close spirit advisement through Mrs. Winters. Nearer and nearer, so she told him, he came to the oil, until only a shell of a few inches in thickness held ia the llood. Then bo began to think of means to gather tho coming flow. If allowed to run at will down the mountain side it would submerge tho city and result only in waste and damage. Bdnctantly. and still guided by the medium, be lately formed a stock company, and money enough was promised to build tanks and lav aii iron Pipe from the opening. At this point Mrs. Winters demanded $25 on each share Before any further work was done. Thereat the stockholders lost faith, and surreptitiously fired off a big charge of powder in the side of the mountain. A huge bole was blown out. but no oil leaped forth, and the company was burst. A “Scrumptious Equipage.” From the <\ ueinnati Conivxrdai, E. 0. Sta.ucr.rd. member of Congress from tho First District of Missouri, sports tho most scrumptious equipage in Washington. The but tons on his driver’s coat are are as large as soup plates, and the cockade oc his hat about the size of a turkey’s wing, while three yards of blue ribbon float from the whip handle. THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: SUNDAY, MARCH 8. 1«74. WASHINGTONIAN HOME. Trouble Between Superintendent and Clerk. What the Former Das to Say About It. The Executive Committee Must Decide. All Chicagoans have heard of the Washing tonian Home—a kind of Umbo to which chronic inebriates are consigned, or consign themselves, in tbo hope of acquiring a distaste for thoUqnid that produces temporary madness and perma nent misfortune. It is a very useful institution, and is, as anile, well patronized. Tho place is situated on West Madison street, near Ashland avenue, and is neither mean nor magnificent in appearance. It is a plain, two-story frame build ing, having none of that stereotyped gloom which usually characterizes a charitable or reformatory concern. Tbo blue devils do not generally patronize a comfortable frame structure with yellow paint, and tho borso cars running by tbo door. They generally take up their abode in that boll upon earth called the County-House, or in tho narrow cells of the Bridewell or County Jail. In short, tho Home looks like what it was, a country tavern, where tho traveler can have plain faro and sound sloop. Aud tbo placo is an inn on a peculiar scale. Some people assert that a chronic sot cannot be redeemed. Tno patrons of tho Home in sist that ho can. Several very hard cases havo gono there in sorrow and left in joy—not so much for tho leaving as fortbo reformation which theetaying brought. A few of these are very valuable citizens just now. Some left and, although apparently cured of their gluttonous thirst, stooped choir lips onco more in the Lethean pool and were forever lost, —for a relapse, mental or physical, is even worse than a first attack. Undeniably the Homo is a thing of interest, and it is worthy of serious consideration, oven should its moral regimen succeed in saving only one poor soul from the alcoholic cauldron which may bo called the devil's tea-kettle. But in the best of mortal things there must bo a fiaw. Whore two or throe are gathered together in lb© name of Lord, or of that charity which is His truest representative, there ia cer tain to bo more or loss dissension. Tho science of government becomes more difficult as tho arena of the governors becomes more con tracted. Disraeli may manage tho British Em pire with a master baud, hut it is doubtful whether the astute Benjamin would make a suc cessful superintendent of convalescent drunk ards. psrsmrr dissensions. Especially when the co-ordinate branches of a government are of different sex is the work or governing bard, Xbo Executive Committee of the Washingtonian Homo is made up of both sexes. The Superintendent belongs to the sex of Adam. There havo been innumerable Superintendents in the Home during its existence. All have succumbed to tho inevitable demon of dissipation, and havo departed one by one. Last April a now venture was made. A Mx. Hager, lately frqm Missouri, was placed in power- Ho got along well enough for a little time, but gradually bis management began to dissatisfy some of tbe ladies of the Executive Committee, and a cold ness resulted. This was not ah. THE CLERK of tbe establishment for many years has been a Mr. McFarland. Ho thinks that ho “knows the ropes,” and is somewhat restive under new rulers. Ergo, he always lesieta when things, according to ins ideas, go wrong. Mr. Hager, being the Suuerm f cndent, assumed the du ties of his position with tho confidence becoming a superior officer. Mr. McFarland, rating his experience above tho other gentle man’s rank, ventured to do things in his own way. The result was a three-cornered row. Tho Superintendent was blamed by the ladies and by tho Clerk. Mr. Hager blamed both parties. Ho is a man of pray hairs allied to nerve, and is not easily put down. But matters havo now reached a climax. A meeting of tho Executive Committee was called this afternoon at the office of Mr. H. C. Morey, No. 77 South Clark street, for the pur pose of adjusting the difficulty in some manner. Previous to tho meeting a reporter of The Tribune called upon the officers of the Homo and had a talk with them. Ho saw 3lr. Hager first. The old gentleman bos a fine head, and is evidently a man of some education. His bump of firmness, alias obsti nacy. about neutralizes his bump of benevo lence, which makes quite a creditable display in tbe frontal region of ms cranium. His room is in the second story, and is bounded by several sleeping apartments. The venerable man led tho reporter into the remotest of these cham bers, so that no outsider might hear remarks on either side. A couple of ladies, who were play ing with sewing-machines, looked awfully curi ous, but retained their places. A young man, who must bo a kind of salamander on account of his affection for tho stove, looked np listlessly from a damaged-looking account-book, but said nothing. Mr. Hager majestically waved tho reporter to a scat. Tho reporter heroically accepted tho courtesy. UNDER ELIMINATION. “ Now, eir,” said Mr. H., “ what do you wish to sav ?” * Ob, several things,” replied the unabashed journalist.” “ How aro you getting along hero —beard you had some trouble with ‘ Mac * and tbe ladies.” “ Sir,” replied Sir. Hager, “ the trouble was none of my making. X desire to say nothing about this matter just now, if you like it best.” . The reporter said he did not like it best. *• Very well, then,” continued the Superin tendent, “ I am tho successor of a score or so of predecessors, all of whom have been turned out because of their opposition to outside meddling. I desire to be allowed to run the place in the best interests of the in mates ; X do not want to be unnecessarily ob structed.” CAUSE OP THE TROUBLE. “Who obstructs you, then?” inquired The Tribute man. “ Why, tho ladies of the Committee do not quite agree with my policy, nor do I with them. 1 cau give no very satisfactory reason for their discontent, My expenditures, I think, do not always suit them. They think me, perhaps, ex travagant. but X want to treat the people who are domiciled here as well as can b?.” •• What has ‘Mac* got lo do with the busi ness ?” • “Well,” replied Hr. H.. “he’s been in office hero a long time, and thinks ho knows it all. East summer I took in an unfortunate person named Boyd, who was deep in dissipation. Ha did not have any money, but ha gave mo his father’s address in Pennsylvania, and said that his board would be paid if I wrote about him. I did write, and received no reply. Btill I kept him in, having pity for his forlorn stale, but no money camo. X employed him to paint up tho bouse, and only discharged him last week for reasons which X think it best not to moke pub lic.” DISCHARGING SI’PARLAND. “I understand,” said the reporter, “ that you have ordered McFarland to quit?” “Yes,”said Mr. Hager, “and if ho leaves quietly, I shall say nothing about him—l'll let tno thing rest where it la. Ho and I cannot sail in the same boat. I’m an independent man. When I was in Missouri I gave offense to the great Tin Company by stating that there was no tin in the Stale, notwithstanding the fact that they had gone to the expense of patting up $150,000 worth of works. Tho event proved me correct, bat they discharged me without trial. Now, I don’t want to be treated that way this time, but, if the Executive Committee have any charges against me, 1 want to see them, so that 1 may have an opportunity of defending myself.” This ended the conversation, and tho reporter sought tho clerk. m’farland wild not talk. Mr. McFarland is quite advanced in years, and quite thin. He wears a soft hat aud white mus tache, something like tho Hon. N. B. Judd’s. Mr. McFarland was very polite, but had noth ing of public nature to say. The difference with Mr. Hager was simply personal. THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. . The Executive Committee meeting was some thing of a fizzle, because tho President, J>r. Davis, could no; posaiblv attend. Conseqaeutlv, the body adjourned early, without having come to any definite conclusion.
