Apparent ly it has resulted in a victory for the Knights of Labor. It was a contest be tween labor and a gigantic corporation. and labor maintained its own. The strike has been a costly one to the rail road company. And it has demonstrated a fact, which the people were not slow to see, and that is, the great power of the railroads, and the immensemischief, it may inflict upon the public when the time and occasion may make it an object to do so. The people have learned that the managers, whose honor is limited only by their rapacity, could form a com bination that would paralize the lndus tries of the country. Hence is it no, high time that these corporations be sur rounded by the most stringent laws that their power, for evil, be held within pro per bound? Such legislation Is urgently demanded. And the enactment of such law., as will be force the aeceptation of arbitration between capital and the re presentative of labor is, a'so of urgent necessity. Labor must have the same rights, as capital it we want stability in tranppo tation. Capital organizes for proht, labor should be permitted to fore association for self-protection. The la borer is worthy of his time and this teet most be recognized by capiltl, mm If sneh recognition must be eamered b~ tie alt'nt stringent leglr'I . l IN MNMORIAM.
