The Cigarmakers' Union intends to make vig orous war on the tenement house system after October 1. The printing business is picking up. Typo graphical Union, No. (J, has received a large num ber of new members and will soon demand higher prices in the book offices. The strike of the members of the Amalgamated Building Trades Union, who have been employed on the Dakota flats at 72d street and 8th avenue, and on the row of houses on 73d street, still con tiiues. The miserably paid buttonhole makers who are now on strike in New York, resolved to call upon the other branches of the tailoring trade to assist them by also refusing to work in scab shops. One boss, whose people are on strike, hired a woman who had a small child with her, and while the woman worked the boss "minded the baby." The threatened strike of the Union workmen employed on the new Produce Exchange building did not take place because tne non union pmm ers and laborers joined their Unions, and so the trouble was averted. The only non-union men now employed there are the carpenters from the shops of Meeker & Hedden, but they will prob ably join the Union in a day or two. NEW ORLEANS. The Saddlers' Union, branch of the National Union, yesterday ordered its members on strike. With the exception of three firms the bosses ac ceded to the demands of the Union. An increase of 35 per cent, was added to the wages of the workmen. ST. LOUIS. The coopers have won a complete victory, gain ing every point. They were out only four days. TOLEDO, o. Over 200 of the sewing girls employed by Black & Hoffman in making cloaks and other garments struck. They had formed an organization and the pay for some classes of work given to part of them not being what was demanded they all went out together. A compromise will probably be effected. SAN FRANCISCO. The strike of girl shoe fitters at Nolan's brings out one of the worst results of Chinese competi tion. These girls have only been earning from $5 to $0 per week, and now Chinese competition, so the firm says, compels a reduction of 15 per cent, from even these low wages.

Meanwhile, from 50 to 100 assemblies a month are coming in from al parts of the country. Labor has got on the right track. After its own internal enemies nave failed to disrupt it, after the newspapers have tried and failed, and after it has become a mighty power in the land, then the politicians will try to get in it and run it. Fortunately, the politicians in it now are very few, and have been coolly treated in their political aspirations. The safety of this grand organization lies in keeping out politicians, and keeping the few now inside from doing any harm. A Successful Strike The 'longshoremen of Brooklyn have in less than one week compelled the employers to cave in. They conducted the struggle in a style which many of our kid-gloved preachers of "respecta bility" would designate violent ; yet they won. To be sure they were somewhat rough and ready in their ways. They did not suggest rewards from their funds for the detection of any of their people who might "break the law." They as sembled in crowds about the docks; they looked ugly at scabs or interlopers who ventured around with the object of taking their places. In a hun dred very excellent ways they gave unmistakable evidence that they meant business ; and so they won the fight. C--:lt:s i HATS, TRUNKS, BAGS. Lowest Prices in the citv. 2d Rgt., C. N.
