It is no longer even a question o? to whether the laboring classee are benefited by strikes. It has been set? tled time and again by actual testa that they are not. To-day, the 18th, it is understood that a strike is pend? ing among the brotherhood of engi? neers covering the entire Louisville and Nashville system, the aim being, aa is understood, to* force the man? agement to allow them an additonal half-cent for every mile's rnn made by them. This being the case, they make this demand of the company of ^nen who have and are daily putting bread into the mouths of their wives and children, and say to them "if you don't accecd to our demands we'll stop yojnr road, and make you lose thousands of dollars." f| Striken in general are strictly no good. While in some instances it may be nccesary to briug the wrongs and oppression of heart loss capital? ists?for such animals do exist?to honest-la bor to their notice in a. very forcible manner; still, ninety-nine in every one hundred strikes are uncall? ed for, and usually originate on a beer keg in front of a back-ally dive, or some similar place, and among the "layers-off" or the men who work oaly when necessity and circumstan? ces compel them to do so. The writer once knew an entire union of printers thrown out of work for days?some of them being forced to look for work elsewhere?simply on account of a drunken printer, who, under the laws governing the union, claimed he had been wronged ont of thirty-five cents by one of the papers of the city. He demanded that his claim be recognized by the members of the union, and, according to the by-laws, he had as much right to ask for recognition as if the amount had been thirty-five thousand dollars instead of thirty-five cents. Besides, when a strike is on, or even talked of, it brings to the front the very worst element to be found among the class of laborers affected, who assume the position of leaders, and always go beyond all bound* of reason. In case the present talked-of strike should go into effect, the brotherhood of engineers not only bring loss and damage upon the management of the L. & N. road, but they affect largely the business interest of all connect? ing roads, and bring thousands of dollars loss upon the heads of an innocent public. Let labor organizations exist, for they are a necessity, but let them be governed and controlled by good judgement and common sense; and lot them approach the management of the business, they are connected with in a business-like and gentle? manly manner as would be done be? twecn two individuals, and if new terms can't be arranged, let the kick? ers be satisfied to step down and out without forcing other members of their order to step out with them, 4nd thus cut off the necessaries of life from thousands of innocent wo? men and feehlp children." CORRECT, The Bristol Courier** Green Springs correspondent, in a letter of the 6th inst. says: j "1 am glad to so* things looking a Sittla lively around Big Ston? Gap. One fur? nace is making iron, and anothei getting ready to do so. If the Virginia Coal and Iron Co. would commence operations la the proper apirit, in a short time the Gap would begin to grow to the size it has a right to, by virtue of its ?isvtromncrttt??0 great manufacturing city. The Virginia Coal andiron Company alone siauds In she way." Exactly so: the delay of the opera- J lions by the Virginia Coal and Iron ^ <>c lias done much to retard asd hold .back the growth of Big Stone f.?ap, and many peopia have suffered financially on account of the appar? ent slow progress of its work. Still, it should be remembered that this great company has had an immense amount of preliminary work to do. It has had to purchase its vast piece of property in comparatively small boundaries-; it has... had boundary lines to .establish, hundreds of deeds and titles to perfect, months of engi? neering work to perform, and it has all required time and much labor; beside, it has had serious Saw-sutta ? to contend with. With the large a meant of money already invested in Iis property here, in addition to the vast amount to be invested hi patting their works into operation, it could hardly bs expected of it to proceed! ?with the work of development nsatil 60 &3_d ev??y legal defect properly ad? jttfctetj. While a great raaoy, no doubt, havo buffered financial l?s? from, a? stated above, the apparent nlow progress of the company'* work, ?tili, the company is in no wiae to blame for this, as it K?b never for once sent oat any highly-colored statement* or made any rash promises to the public. Only await the proper time, and this great company will do its part toward placing the Gap in its proper position , as a great mannfactnring city. CLEVELAND'S BACKBONE. No one bat the disgruntled and disappointed politician can help but admire Mr. Cleveland's backbone in hin appointment of Judge Gresham as Secretary of State. Mr. Cleve? land was thoroughly aware of the fact that the announcement of his selection of Judge Gresham to fill this important place in his cabinet wonld bring down a tirade of abuse like a thousand of brick on his head, and for the very knowledge of this fact he is more fully entitled to the admiration and confidence of the people of the United States. Go it, .Grow;?you display a correct idea oi free American principles J)o it some more; it'll make a man of you. SOME MORE BACKBONE. Alongside of Cleveland's appoint? ment of Judge Gresham to Secretary of State, Harrison's action has ruth? lessly slapped some of the radical element of his party square in the face by the appointment of Judge Jackson, a Democrat, of Tennessee, to succeed Justice LaniarGo it, Ben; you're President of these United States till the 4th of next March, and by the eternal, we'd show 'em that a President is entitled to just ?s much independence as a private citizen.
