William Gorman has just been found guilty of the murder of a policeman, Thomas Roach, at Newark. Ohio, last year. The only good thing about the president's message was its brevity. It was long enough, however, to serve as his political death warrant Colouel Robert Ingersoll recently said to a friend, from whom he was parting "God bleu you." The colonel will be a shout ing Methedist yet Commander-in-Chief Ilea, of the Grand Army, was a class-mate of Governor For afcer and Hon. T. K. Powell. Xo wonder that he has risen in the world. Washington Gladden thinks that one man converted in a church will do as much good as three men converted (In evaugellstic services) In a nnk. It wonld depend, largely, on the man, we think. Congressmen Reed, of Maine, fires off this shot at the presidential free trade "ar gument:'' The idea of a man putting in cold lead the statement that the consumers pay the dutv en Imports! Why, when we increased the tariff on crockery S!j per cent, in 18S3, instead of increasing the cost of the article to the consumer the price went down 25 per cent. The Rev. Dr. Carson is a good and true man all over and all the way through a good, hearty, wholesome, every-day Chris tian with almost as much honest fun in him as there is grace. When one looks at him and hears him he is inclined to try to be just such a Christian as he is. As a matter of course this applies to most ot our local pastors, but as the doctor is a new man we think we have a right to take a whack at him. The new Kent house at I-akewood, at Chautauqua lake, is already arising out of the ashes of the late structure, and Messrs. Sliney Jt Frisbee inform us that it will be much finer than the old building and that It will be ready for guests by the first of June. They are certainly pushing things with great energy, and they may be sure that their old Springfield friends will nit forget them when they visit the lake. The enterprise of Mr. II. M. Flagler, an Ohio man, (of Cleveland), In building the two palatial hotels the i'ouce de Leon and Us annex, the Alcazar at St Augustine, Is certainly stupendous, and it will be sure to create a revolution among pleasure-seekers. Already the Atlantic Coast line (rail way) has inaugurated, from the eastem cities, a vestibule train service to Florida, that will be equal in appliances for comfort and luxury to auything vet known in the way of transportation.

The labor problem is always with us, and it will always remain with us. We are an industrial people, and we are also a people of organizers. It is a demonstrated fact that a number of persous working together can accomplish their purposes to better ad vantage than ware each to undertake the work single-handed. Organization, for the mutual benefit of individuals and for the public good, was devised and put into prac tice by the founder of the Christian re ligion, and the Christian church of today, with all of Its several departments, feat ures, enterprises and operations, is a mar vellous exhibition ot what can be accom plished for the good of the world by mutual and united effort. Then we have organizations in politics. We would lie nothing less than an im mense, unwieldy mob iu tills country if we had no political parties. Without them nothing would be settled or permanent and no man could know what of peril or disas ter a day might bring forth. Our agricultural friends formed them selves into a Grange and attempted great things. At first their o)eratIous were crude and moreor less unintelligent but they stood together and thrust themselves In a body, abruptly and vigorously, against the great railway monojwhes, and to them the country is Indebted fur great and most use ful modifications, and indirectly we be lieve for the better features of the Inter state Commerce law. Shall there be organization, in all de partments of the religious, social and polit ical world, and none among worklngmen? This question has answered itself. We have industrial organization in both the employing class and the working class. The members of each wing of the great in dustrial army which ought always, to be one and indivisible bare sought very nat urally, to promote their own interests. This we must expect and accept as one of the facts which comjiose an important ele ment in the solution of the momentous problem involved. There is a higher plane of action but it is only reached through educational processes moral teachings, study, experience, the indulgence ami culture of patriotic Impulses and of Chris tian principles the Iruitof which will, ulti mately, be the adoption of the principles of the Golden Rule by both parties each put ting itself in the place of the other and both considering what is likely to promote the welfare and prosperity of both without working harm to either. Labor organizations are inevitable, and we may. therefore, consider at this point, the wholesome features of labor organiza tions which are of benefit to both the em ployer and the man who works for him. Among the first of these is the o'ganized movement among members of labor organ izations against drinking habits. And let all decent and patriotic citizens bn grateful that this movement has acquired great strength and effectiveness. It was spontane ous springing up withm the organizations themselves and we wish to do the work lngmen of the country the justice to say that thelrmovement against dissipation and drunkenness is one of the most sensible and practical ever known. Years ago we had railway accidents, caused by drunken engi neers. Now who ever hears of a drunken locomotive engineer? All engineers and firemen or nearly all on our railways, belong to Itrotherhoods. whose laws forbid the use of intoxicating liquor.. Is not this feature of immense benefit to railway tym panies and their stockholders as wall as to I the traveling public and the country at Unco? The educating process of working men's organizations are of great benefit bth to them and their employers also to the public The members of labor unions are led, from their very circumstances, to personally study and investizate the most important of the branches of political econ omy. Xo study has a wider, or more prac tical, range than theirs. It requires the best heart and the best brain to master It, Far it cannot be grappled witli and mis tered unless one takes into consideration b itli sides and all sides of pending ques tions. As a result of the situation we finl growing up among the workinjuien of the c Mintry a race of practical political econo mists and real statesmen. And in a coun try whose chief magistracy has been hon ored by representatives from the tailor's btuch and the canal tow path, we need not be surprised at this. Thee statesmen have become good public speakers and real men of affairs, and therefore useful citizens. It is true also that through the organiza tion of labor the character of the work done has been improved. We may speak ot one feature of printers' unions which his been of benefit both to employing print ers and to their men and that is that the managers of the union have encouraged and stimulated a desire to excel on the part of the rank and file, and as the result of this we have belter printers more Intel!! gent more conscientious, better workmen In every way. Then the unions have taken in hand the matter of organizing and en forcing discipline, which, formerly, was undertaken, with very poor results, by em ployers. In a phr.ise, we may say that union printers now mutually manage and govern themselves and unite to protect their own and their employers' luterests. But it must not be inferred that we consider the union free from defects. None of the labor organizations are above criticism or im provement; but we are speaking of their wholesome featuies which are of benefit to both ranks of the armv, so that wise em ployers, well-meaning workingmen and all gooi citizens mty do what they can to pro mote these wholesome features. Let us e:icurage and promote fiat which is good and that only. Another very good and useful feature lu labor organization is the social feature. Members are taught and eucouraced to consider each other as brothers and sisters, and to care for and promote each other's In terests. A fraternal spirit is encouraged. and In the course of time, as educational processes are enlarged and broadened, this splnt must, inevitably, reach all the per sonal factors In the great Industrial prob lem and bring capital and labjr together. In a most friendly embrace, anil into per manently peaceful and co-operative rela tijns. We are not discussing, iu this article, the attitude or character of employing organl zatlous. There are also educating processes In operation in these. Capital has yet much to learn and much to achieve. It needs to study closely the Golden Rule, in all its re quirements and possible applications. As labor advances tnwardscapital.with an out stretched hand, capital should advance to meet It, in its own Interest and lu the inter est of the public. It is doing just this, m some respects and to some extent. Should it retreat, in the wrong direction, from ad vancing labor, it would do so at its own peril, and to the great peril of our entire social, commercial and political system. But it will not and cannot. Wo are on the eve of better times, and will do well to study the processes that are hastening them. The members of the American Evangeli cal Alliance, in session at Washington, called on President and Mrs. Cleveland, on Friday, aud the chairman, Mr. William E. Dodge, made a nice little speech to the "administrate e" pair. In his reply, the president said: AH must admit that the reception ot the teachings of Christianity results In the pur est patriotism, in the most scrupulous fidel ity to public trust ami in the lxst type of citizenship. Those who manage the affairs of government are by this means reminded that the law of God demands that they should be courageously true to the interests of the people, and that the Ruler of the universe will require of them a strict ac count ot their stewardship. The people, too. are thus taught that their happiness and welfare will be best promoted by a con scientious reganl for the inteiests of a com mon brotherhood, and that the success of a government by the people depends upon the moralitv, the justice and the honesty of the people. This Is a commendable utterancethe best the president has yet made. The Columbus iJinjwifch intimates that we are to have a short sesslou of the new legislature.
