SATURDAY, : DECEMBER 29, 1S33. THE KNIGHTS OF LABOR. This, tho most powerful labor organi zation which ever existed in America, has, w ithin the last year, suffered a seri ous loss of membership, with correspond ing impairment of financial ability. At the session of the General Assembly of the Order, held in November, the Gene ral Treasurer presented his report which showed that according to the receipts from taxes, which is simply another name for dues, the membership had decreased about 300,000 during the past fiscal year. It also appeared that the receipts were not sufficient to cover tho necessary expenses. To meet this emergency the Treasurer recommended certain changes and retrenchments, which it is estimated will reduce the ex penses to an amount within the probable income. Whether this serious impairment of numerical and financial strength is to run on into a settled decadence and end finally in the extinction of the Order, or whether it is to act as a timely and forci ble reminder of the mistakes" that have been made, and bo serve as a salutary means of discipline and instruction for the future, remains to be seen. The re sult will depend upon the amount of wTisdom which may chance to reside in the remaining membership. Tho fundamental danger besetting this ' as well as similar organizations, the rock upon which they all alike are liable to come to grief is one and the same, viz. : an inability On the part of those compos ing them to distinguish between the practicable and the impracticable, to dis criminate between aims and methods which are desirable and attainable, and those which are chimerical and whose prosecution can only end in disappoint ment and loss. Men who honestly be lieve that they have a grievance, and who are convinced that they and others in the same walks of life do not receive as large a share of the world's wealth as their services in producing that wealth fairly entitle them to, frequently and in deed generally fail in securing the ob . jects they set before themselves, from failure to realize that commercial and in dustrial matters are regulated by natural laws which it is useless to ignore, and from, whose consequences it is impossi ble to escape. By natural laws, we in.Ti V.s arising from the constitution of nature and the make up of the human ,-.mml. The failure to understand the Hare and scope of these laws, or even eahze tho existence of such obstacles heir plans, is by no means confined to or reformers,but crops out with equally .astrous results among those who, with icre zeal than knowledge, are proposing io retorm the finances, extirpate intem perance, ladically and immediately re construct the land tenure and make everybody virtuous, rich and happy by Act of Parliament. The organized efforts of any class of people to improve their condition by legitimate means are always entitled to sympathy and respect, and as no one is likely to ever learn to swim by keeping away from the water, so the wage earn ers will have to learn, as mankind at large, in all the ages, has had to learn by constant experiment and repeated failure what objects are best worth striv ing for, and what are the most practica ble means by which those objects can be secured. The Knights were an Order having a vast membership and wfelding an im mense power. There were some broad and generous features about the organ ization which seemed to put it on a dis tinctly higher plane than the trade unions and other organizations which had preceded it. It had in it the promise and the possibility of great good. In so far as it has failed in accomplishing the more worthy portion of it3 mission, the failure has been due to the causes indi cated above. The more violent and un reasonable portion of its membership were able to gain sufficient control over the machinery of the organization to use its great power in the furtherance of their own foolish ideas, and in the carry ing out of measures which were not only unwise, but unjust, illegal, tyrannical and outrageous. The result has been a loss of public sympathy and respect and a seriou3 defection in its own ranks. The ultimate results to the Order cannot be positively foreseen. Although the supposition may not be capable of im mediate verification, it seems every way probable that those who have with drawn consist largely of the more mod erate and conservative- members. In this case the organization would, of necessity, fall more than ever into the hands' of the violent and unscrupulous, and the result be the entire ruin of the Order at no very distant day. Although this seems probable, our wish and hope is that the outcome may be quite dif ferent. , CORRESPONDENCE. Wo do not hold ourselves responsible for the statements made, or opinions expressed by our correspondents. Letter of Thanks. Mr. Editor: I desire to avail mvself of the columns of your paper to thank those who contributed towards furnish ing the means for purchasing Christmas gifts for the children at the Leper Settle ment on Molokai and the girls at Kapio- lani Home at Kakaako. It is to be hoped that the kind friends who 'have contributed either money or articles of value for this purpose will accept this general return of thanks, and will par don iho non-mention of their names with specification of the articles, or cash con tributed. The total amount of money contributed was $69, of which $54.50 wTas used, leav ing a balance of f 5.50 in the hands of the Board for future use. There were also contributed a lot of canned fruits, dried fruits, crackers, nic-nacs, one box of shoes, a lot of toys, one croquet set, one game, three dressed dolls, and one box of fresh apples; also various bundles of clean rags and cast-off clothing, for which there is always a demand at the Leper Settlement.

Thompson, at torney at law, Honolulu, is preparing an index-digest to the decisions of the Supreme Court of the Hawaiian Islands. The work wiW.be in the alphabetical order of the points of law decided in the reports, and will contain cross refer ences, so that every point of law decided by the Court may be readily seen under its appropriate head, with reference to the name of the case, volume and page, etc. Col. Thompson's well-known legal abilities and experience in such work afford sufficient guarantee that the work will be accurately and well done; and if so, it can but be a desideratum to the bench and bar. It will be a saving of time to iudtres and lawyers bv directing them to the points of law decided bv the Court, and to the case, book, and page where the case appears in extenso. It Will be valu able to laymen, who raav at small ex pense acquire a knowledge of the pith and marrow of the law of Hawaii as ex pounded by the Courts, Doubtless many copies of the work could be sold beyond the limits of Ha waii, as many important and interesting questions of local, maritime, and inter- national law nave ocen raised and de cided in the Hawaiian courts, that ver robably never raised or decided in any ther country. It is understood that- some or the ancient laws, usages, cus toms, habits, traditions, legends, super stitions, idolatries and domestic econ omies, etc., ol the riawaiians were necessarily considered, by the courts, in ne adjudications oi the rights of per sons and properties.
