M. Cu.mmino Reid. Lonaconing, Md., October, 1882 — Baltimorean. irUiacclkM, Tin: KNIGHTS or LA BO It. Ha phi Growth of n Benevolent Order in Baltimore, Within the last two years the Knights of Labor have increased very rapidly in Baltimore, having added during that time over 6,000 names to the list of members, the aggregate now being estimated at 10,000. Prior to its organization in Baltimore, which was during the year 1860, the various trad unions, meeting on different nights and not having ccmmuuication with each other, were unable to act upon important pro positions affecting their interests, and in tins way their efforts were not only powerless, but they were frequently derided for attempting to accomplish results with so little numerical strength. It was common to bear them sp. ken of as having no fixedness of purpose ; that I hey really knew not what was bast for them, and that if they did they would not agree long enough to achieve my specific object :n view. Thus as distinct bodies they weio nevir consulted and little dread ed. Now, however, they are looked upon very differently, being recog nized as an important agent, and ss such will probably be able to secure more consideration in the future than they huva iu the past. They have in this city twen:y-pix assemblies of whit 3 men, made up of printers, car penters, bricklayers, blacksmiths, can makers and every ether trade, to gether with several assemblies of col ored mechanics and laborers, all of whom are under the direct jurisdic tion of a cenl:al district assembly compered of delegates from each, and the voice of this higher assembly is the voice ol all throughout the city and within a radius of five miles be yond. They have been very thought ful in drafting their constitution so as to admit Catholic mechanics and la borers, a large number of whom are | members. They aid one another if in distress, as for example; Last winter a colored man was met in the streets cf Baltimore by some boatmen who persuaded him to go on board a schooner lying at anchor iu the basin to do a small job of work, promising to pay him well for it. Tbe colored man followed them to the beat, and when he was fairly on board, they drew anchor, hoisted sail and carried him to the mouth of the Potomac, where he was kept a prisoner and forced to dredge for oysters, his wife and children meanwhile being left without means of support. Ho suc ceeded, alter a couple of weeks’ im prisonment, in getting word to Balti more, whereupon some half dozen white Knights of Labor procured a tng, wont to the Potomac, took tfie man from .the vessel and made the capNin pay damages. Also, in the case of Michael Grogan, who was re cently drowned below Fort Carroll, the members of the organization, as already staled in the Bay, recovered his body, brought it to the city and provided a becoming Christian burial from St. Mary’s Slur of the Sea Church. The order proclaims that tbe development and aggression ol aggregated wealth will lead to pau penza'ion and hopeless degradation of the tilling masses if a check be not placed upon its power, and they believa this much-desired object can only bo accomplished by a thorough unification ct labor as contemplated by their organization. I The objects are : "To bring within 1 the folds of the organization every department of productive industry, making knowledge a stand-point for action, and industrious moral worth, not wealth, the true standard of in dividual and national greatness; to secure to the toilers a proper share of the wealth they create, more of the leisure that rightfully belongs to them, more society advantages, more of tbe benefits, privileges and emoluments of the wor.d; in a word, all those rights and privileges necessary to make them capable cf enjoying, ap preciating, defending and perpetuat mg the blessings of good government; to arrive at the true condition of the producing marses in the educational, moral and financial condition be de manding from tbe various govern ments the establishment of bureaus of labor statistics ; the establishment of co-operative institutions, productive and distributive; the reserving of the public lands—tba heritage of the peo ple—for the actual settler, not anoth er acre for railroads or speculators ; the abrogation of all laws that do not bear equally upon capital and labor ; the removal of unjust technicalities, delays and discriminations in the ad ministration of justice, and the adop tion of measures providing for the health and safety of those engaged in mining, manufacturing and building pursuits; the enactment of laws to compel the chartered corporations to pay their employees weekly in full for labor performed during the pre ceoding week in lawful money of the country ; the enactment of laws giv ing mechanics and laborers a first lien on their work for their full wages; the abolishment of the contract sys tem on national, State and municipal work ; the substitution of arbitration for strikes whenever and wherever employers and employees are willing . to meet on equitable grounds; the prohibition of children in workshops, mines and factories before attaining their fourteenth year; to abolish the system of letting out by contract tbe labor of convicts in prisons and re formatory institutions; to secure for both sexes equal pay for equal work ; the reduelion of iho hours of labor to eight per day, so that the laborer may have more time for social enjoyment and intellectual improvement, and to prevail upon governments to establish a purely national circulating medium> issued directly to the people, without the intervention of any system of banking corporations, which money shall be a legal tender for all debts, public and piivate.”—Baltimore Bay. The. Disappointed Candidate. The candidate who got left at the county convention can be told by the way he grasps yaur hand, braces him se.f against l.is gurgling emotion and wbisperingly inquires: “Did you ever hear of a caee like it ?" You never did. You tell him that you never did and he pulls you into a doorway and continues ; “I’m done with politics forever?" “No I" “Yes, I am, and with the party, too." “You don’t say I” “Oh, but I am. This thing has sat isfied me that there is no such thing as honesty in politics, and that a poli tician has no more word than a dog. I was sold out." "Possible!" "Sold out and lied out! They used money to best me. They lied about me. They played hypocrite and knave. Here I have served the par ty lor nineteen long years and never asked for an office, and the minute I decided to accept the nomination for a little fifleen-ornt position they go to work and beat me in convention with a wooden-head who doesn’t know enough to mark a barrel of pork. Corruption, sir—cor-rup-shun—and the whole ticket will be defeated on account of it.” And the best of it is he takes you for a man who isn't posted. He doesn't believe yon have tbe slightest idea that he packed three or four cau cuses, bought a dozen delegates, told three lies to the other man's one and was beaten because bis delegates sold out.- He takes you for an innocent and he grasps your hand again at parting aud chokingly says: “Corruption—vile corruption ! Most bare-faced fraud in American politics ! Can’t train with a party uphold by the practice of such principles—can’t possibly do it.” — Detroit Free Press, Gfav hairs often cause annoyance which Parker's Hair Balsam prevents by restoring the youthful color. Mary and the Tariff. "Father, what does tariff mean? I heard brother Charles say he had been discussing the tariff at his debat ing club last night." “Well, Mary," answered the gentle man addreused, 1 if you will take th? pains to get down the dictionary and the atlas, I will help you to find out the nistory and mystery of the word tariff." "The atlas, father ?” said Mary in surprise ; “why, that is where I look for places—straits and gulfs and riv ers and towns —but I never should think of looking iuto an atlas for the meaning of a word." ‘ Well, we shall see, daughter," re plied her father; and if the readers of this will do as Mary was directed to do, they will be likely to remember the meaning of the word tariff, and perhaps learn something. “Tariff means a list of duties imposed by government upon goods imported iuto this territory from other countries. For instance, when silk goods are brought from Europe to this country, the United States government collects at tbe port of entry from those to whom the goods are sent a certain fixed proportion of their value iu money, and this amount is called cus toms duty. All money so received goes into the national treasury." Mary’s brother, as a number of bis associates, bad been discussing tbe present system of tariff in this coun try. In the debate there were, of course, two sides. On one side il was argued that the government should collect only sufficient duties to pay the expenses necessary for its main tenance. On the other side it was held that whenever, owing to cheap foreign labor, goods manufactured abroad could be sold iu this country at prices lower than those of similar American products, a tariff duty should be imposed. This, it was ar gued, should be sufficient to raise the price of foreign goods to the standard of American manufactures. All this Mary’g father explained to her. He explained, moreover, the deti itiau given of tariff for revenue only to the fotmer proposition, and protective tariff to the latter proposition. By this time Mary was anxious to know the use of the atlas, end a fur ther reference to the dictionary was found necessary. Guided by the sug gestions there made which are found ed on Archbishop Trench’s “Study of Words,’’ Mary aud her father turned to the map of Europe. They then looked at Spain. They noticed at the southern print of that country, and running out into the Straits of Gib raltar, a promontory. This, as Dr. Trench says, is admirably adapted for commanding tbe entrance of the Mediterranean Sea and watching the passing out and coming in of all ships. A fortress stands on this promontory called Tanfa. The name is of Moor ish origin, and was given in the days when the Mcors ruled Spain. It was their custom to watch from this point all mercuaut ships going by. Then issuing trout thair stronghold, they would levy duties upon the merchan dise carried by the vessels. The levy thus made was known as “tarifs," or “tariff," aud thus, Trench telk us, we have acquired the word. After all, with due respect to her brother’s debating society, Mary thought that tbe most interesting fea ture about the tariff was the deriva tion of its name. The Two Countries.

It is always four teen, or sixteen, or twenty, or some even number, and We would like to understand what corn knows about mathematics and what objection na ture has to odd numbers.
