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
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
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

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
If in this general mention any gift has
been overlooked it is hoped that the
giver will not take offence, but will be
rewarded with the consciousness of hav
ing done a kind act and been the means
of giving pleasure to many.

It is learned that M. 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.
