14 WHIT IS WRONG ABOUT THIST From Senator Palmer's speech la the United States senate, July 7th. i I maintain, according to the law of tha land, not m the law la generally under stood, but according to the principles of the law which must hereafter be applied to the solution of these troubles, that tho88 men (the strikers) had a right to - be there. , That makes It necessary for me i to assert that these men had a right ta employment there, they had earned the right to live there, and these large manufacturing establishments and there Is no other road out of the question must hereafter be understood to be public establishments in the modified sense which I will explain in a moment, In which the public Is deeply Interested and the owners of these properties must hereafter be regarded as holding their property subject to the correlative rights of those without whose services the property would be utterly valueless. I maintain, furthermore, that these la borers having been In that service, hav ing been engaged there, having spent their lives in this service, have the right to insist upon the permanency of their employment, and they have the right to in sist, too, upon a reasonable compensation for their services. We talk about the civil service law as applicable to government employment. I assert that there Is a law wider and broader than that, which gives to these men who have been bred In these special pursuits, as, for example, in the service of railroads or of vast manufacturing es tablishments, a riarht to demand employ ment, a right which can only be defeated by misconduct on their part Within my lifetime I have seen mar velous changes. There was a time when individualism was the universal rule and men lived alone almost, because they could support themselves; but matters have changed. To-day the world is prac tically divided between employers and employes. How do you adjust it? You cannot do It by asserting, what I admit to be true, that every man has the right to the con trol of his own property In his own way; it he does not like to go to wo. k for the C&rnegiea he may go to work for some body else. You cannot settle It In that way. You cannot settle It by saying that Mr. Carnegie has a right to employ whomsoever he pleases. Those are old truisms which have no application to this changed condition when organized capital furnishes us all that toe have; it furnishes all our 4od; it furnishes all our clothing; it furnishes our physi cians; I believe it is now furnishing our lawyers; and it is said that it has fur nished our legislators sometimes, al though that Is a slander which I am not disposed to. endorse. That being the case you have got to find some road out. You cannot admit the absolute right of capital; you cannot admit the absolute right of labor; you have got to acjuat their rights upon some basis. What Is It? That, the manufacturing establish ment it a public institution, as ths rail roads are held to be public because they work for the public; public because they employ the public; public because men in thtir employ become unfit for other ser ' mVvji' and nubile because titers are thous ands dependent upon them for food and nurture. You cannot ask these laborers to be come slaves, because If it is true, as claimed by some, that capitalists have the right to hold over the heads of their employes the right of dismissal at their pleasure, American freedom Is gone, and the vote will be cast by the master who holds the bread of the voter. You must give the voter, If you mean that he shall be independent, a fixity of employment, so that he may defy the employer and say to him, "My tenure depends not on my vote, but my tenure depends on my good behavior, upon my fidelity, my honesty, my industry, and not upon my vote." If some solution is not found in that direction, this army of employes will be controlled by the employers, and there will be established an aristocracy more terrible than exists In any free country, and this nobility will become our govern ors.. ' We have stood upon this volcano and now we perceive the eruption, and It will occur constantly. . You may call out the militia of the state of Pennsylvania and you may ex terminate all the Inhabitants of tbat beautiful and thrifty village, and what is done? Human life has again been sacrificed In one of these straggles for human rights. Do you establish the right of these large establishments to control their business? On the contrary, the laboring men of this country, so con scious of the existence of this right which I assert, the right to continue in employment during good behavior, will continue to resist, and this social war will be upon you, and it becomes the duty of Christian statesmen, republican statesmen, to find some road out of the difficulty.
