The iiive.s lu'lens of the '.ill I'itil of I ,ahor Milt is- tics lcvcalcd coiidiliolis among the hi horing cla-sses which would seem inloler. uhle to his heiuvrs. The puhlic u us inclined to look with dilfereiit e es on Inhor and ciipilal. " A man who represents a roinhina tion uf capital is called an iitiorney; a man who repl esent.i a colnhinalion ul woikitigm'-n isealleil a jiI h in, tlidt'rat . Capitalist who cry 'the wiirkiiigineii are asking loo much, are themselves striving to pile asset on teset, ihvidi'iid on dividend." I .Mil iH Till'. Sl.AVK (it- I AI'lTAI.. The keeping of a retinue of servants, a liveried coachman, etc., was evidence that, even t he present general ion him not outgrown the idea of the in eessily of slaves. The whole tendency of I he pos sessors of capital seemed to he towards the re-enslaving of the working pi-upl- Those w ho opposed slavery det l.ued that the Klave-owner made hoth sides of the contrail, and the same rharge might he made regarding the contracts most employers have wilh their employes. He referred with cenHiireto the remark of the President of the ( hicilgo Ty po tliehe that "organizi'il labor is an organ ized iiiuli," ami in similar condemnation of Chiiuiu'cy M. Uepew's declaration that no man belonging to the Knigiils of I abor could work for the New York Central railroad. Such expressions were mi American and in opposition to the free spirit of American institutions. The charge thai men have no right to st l ike came wilh had gtiice from the lips of men w ho claim the right to disemploy. If neither is right lho-e w hose lives ami the livts of their family depended on their actions were most excusable. Shor ter hours and mote consideration for the justifiable demands of implojos would do much in ihe direction of abolishing strikes and lockouts." Mr. Htick advised a study of the un derlying causes of I he eonlliet between capital and labor. Until the ( auses wero ascertained the proper remedy could not be applied, Restrictive legislation would only stem the tide temporarily, and the greater destruction would be wrought when the waves of social revolt should sweep over the barriers. One cause, he thought, wnt the imported system of taxation, without which no monarchy can be sustained, and with w hich no free, nation can endure. C, ('. lionney favored State or Na tional Hoards of Arbitration. Strikes and lockouts alfectcd the entire com munity, and the (iovernnient, he insist ed, had a right to step in and declare how much each side should yield. J, A. Harrigan spoke in praise of the walking delegate as an educator of work ingmen, who seeks to arouse them to the necessity of combining for the pur pose of securing justice. 0 OOll KFI'KCT Of HTK1KKS. George Schilling gave a brief sketch of the history of slrikes in America, and said they were caused hy combinations of capital employing unorganized work men. While he deplored strikes he was satisfied that their elfect was good, even if they are unsuccessful, because the capitalists are thereby made to hesitate liefore forcing their employes into idle ness not because the employe will suf fer, but because the employer cannot alford it. HAS THE HAMMKH ANY Kit HITS: V. T. Mills, editor of the Stattfman, said there could he fair eoniietitioti only where both sides have equal strength but a man could not lie expected to engage successfully in a conflict with a man and a hammer. The hammer would decide the battle. Machinery and capi tal were the hammer of the employer, aud a hammer has no rights. The equip ments of lalntr and the opportunity to engage in labor are controlled by the capitalists, thereby giving him an unfair advantage. In a conflict, then, lie held that the employer represents a machine, while the walkil g delegate represents the toiler. As a machine can have no rights, sympathy and support should be given to the toiler. He predicted that s'rikes aud lockouts will cease when society learns their necessity. Many of the seeches were liberally applauded, particularly those of Mr. Lloyd and Mr. Mills. NATIONALIST CLUB NO. 3. (lull tin SutlielHll oil " The Chilli il Hllil the lulmr Movement." In opening his lecture on the above subject at Nationalist Club No. ' of New York last .Sunday afternoon, Charles Sotheran warned his audience that he would steer clear of all matters of faith and theological questions (so difficult for even theologians to decide consistently after nineteen centuries of trial). He did not antagonize the s irrilicing Chinaman for bringing some choice diet to the burial ground that the spirit of I is de parted friend may not sutler the pangs of hunger; the self mortifying llaptist for taking his purifying dip in water ;iu degrees too cold for his constitution; the pious Roman Catholic for thumping his craw till his hones are Ihittencd; the modest Methodist for abstaining from the fearful crime of moving about to the sound of music in company with a charming woman; ihe punctilious (Quaker for addressing a single person in the proper grammatical terms thee and thou; Ihe orthodox .lew for keep ing his digcslive organs clear from tha', "unclean ' animal, commonly known as the pig. etc., etc. With liny or all of these question the lecturer had no concern and was per fectly satisfied that each person prac tise or ilispise them as hi tonlisliness or wisdom would dictate. Hut, in accord ance with the title of his lecture, ho re viewed the histoiieal action of the insti tution known a the Church, irrespective ol dogmas or denominations, w ith refe rence to the movement so dear to the heart of every Hue Socialist and Nil tionalist. He first referred to the attitude of Koine towards the Knghsh people in their struggle to obtain the Magna Chiirlii; towards the efforts of the Irish race to free itself; toward tin victims of the Inquisition in their ad vocacy ol freedom d' thought; toward our com rades 1 1 if German Socialists; toward the Italian people in their ell'orts to possess their native land; and linally towards our own movement here. Prom all these historical facts he drew the only possible inference, that this part of the Church has proved itself inimical to the ell'orts ol the masses in their struggle for justice. Then turning to the Protestant t 'liurch, heshowed it altitude in the North of Ireland towards the suffering people of that country; toward the Puritans; toward, the supposed witchc in colonial days; towards our gallant forefathers, w hile they were shaking otr the yoke of hi Koy.il Majesty George HI. and it, became necessary to hum Trinity to the ground; towards our father in their struggle to emancipate the slave. All these lads, again, prove that t':i ; wing of the good institution known as the Church, can offer as reasonable amount of obstruction lo progn ss as any other. Finally, the efforts of the Pharisees in early Christian days tocrush out the new aspirations; those of the rabbis a few weeks ago in l'.rookly n to suppress I t ee speech; of I lie Mehoiiimedans 111 Turkey, of the Greek Church in Russia, of the Chinese priests in China, in a word of every church, whenever situated and of, whatever dogma, prove couclu tivelyf that the church as a w hole, irrespective of creed, is the opponent of progreii irrespectifti.l am! the ally ol tyrants. Having drawn this conclusion, com rude Sotheran exho-ted all present to use their best endeavors in insisting that the church keep its hands oil' our movement. 11. Ale and roller l iilou No. 1. A largely attended meeting waslield last Sunday morning, at 'M'i West 4'Jd street. 1 'at rick Connolly was elected Chair man, and Henry Yung, Vice Chairman. The report of the Executive Hoard on its action in eomhatme; the attacks of t ho Knights of Luhnr was endorsed and the Hoard instructed to meet every week so long as the Knights may persist in their hostile attitude. 'Pen new members were initiated. It was reported that Keardon, who fires the balls made by O'Connell, could be seen any dark night dodging behind garbage barrells near Tracy and Rus sell's brewery, and turning green with envy became his and O'Coiinell's hoy eott was without eirect. lvetiucsts of two breweries to admit their employes to Union No. 1 were re ferred to the Executive Hoard. Herman Yung resigned as a ; legate to the United (iernian Trades of Brook lyn and John Steinheimer was elected in his place. It w as reported that a non-union man was employed at Chuisscn and Price, and the Valking Delegate was instruct ed to attend this case. All members were requested to attend the ball on Nov. illl, at o4'' West 4'.'d street. Of the l.'JItO.OOO people w ho emigrated fioin tiermauy in the last nine years. 1,1117,1)1)0 went to the United States, 1 4,700 to Brazil, 1(1,000 to other parts of America, U.OOO to Africa, 1.000 to Asia, and 7, "00 to Australia. These are the (Jernian estimates; hut they are lower for this country than the otlieial returns of our Treasury Department. For in st nice, according to (ierman ligures, the emigration to the United States in lssy whs S4.41I7, whereas, according t(1 our own ollicnil returns, it w as '..i.!ll7, or ll.4"ii) above the Herman ligures. This discrepancy is accounted for by the fact that many emigrant, in order to escape military service, avoid all regis try of their departure. TRADES & SOCIETIES' CALENDAR.

Y pi PL AT OF Socialist Labor Party, Adopted at the Chicago Convention, Odooer U, 1SS9. The SorialiHt Labor Party of the United States, in convention assembled, re atiHcrtH the inalienable riht of all men to life, liberty, ami the purnuit of happiness. With the founders of the American republic we hold that the purpose of govern ment in to secure evt ry citizen in the enjoyment of this right; but in the light of our nodal conditions we hold, furthermore, that no such right can be exercised under a system of economic inequality, essentially destructive of life, of liberty, iiiul of happiness. With the founders of this republic we hold that the true theory of politics is that the machinery of government must be owned and controlled by the whole people; but in the light of our industrial development we hold, furthermore, that tin1 true theory of economics is that the machinery of production muwt likewise belong to the people in common. To the obvious fact that our despotic system of economics is the direct opposite of our democratic system of politics, can plainly br traced the existence of a privileged class, the corruption of government by that class, the alienation of public jiroperty, public fianchises and public functions to that class, and the abject dependence of the mightiest of nations upon that class. Again, through the perversion of democracy to the ends of plutocracy, labor is robbeilof the w ealth which it alone produces, is denied the means of self-employment, and, by compulsory idleness in wage-slavery, is even deprived of the necessaries of life. Human power and natural forces are thus wasted, that the plutocracy may rule. Ignorance and misery with all their concomitant evils are perpetuated, that the people may be kept in bondage. Science and invention are diverted from their humane purpose to the enslave ment of women and children. Against such a system the Socialist Labor Party once more enters its protest. Once more it reiterates its fundamental declaration that private property in the natural sources of production aud in the instruments of labor is the obvious cause of all economic, servitude and political dependence; and Wlirnun, the time is fast coining when, in the natural aonrse of social evolution, this system, through the destructive action of its failures anil crises on the one hand, and the constructive tendencies of its trusts and other capitalistic com binations on the other band, shall have worked out its own downfall ; therefore, be it A'i.s(i'C(7, that we call upon the people to organize with a view to the sub stitution of the co-operative commonwealth for the present state of planless pro duction, industrial war and social disorder; a commonwealth in which every worker shall have the free exercise and full benefit of bis faculties, multiplied by all the modern factors of civilization. We call upon them to unite with us in a mighty effort to gain by all practi c.'iye means the political power. In the meantime, and with a view to immediate improvement in the con dition of labor, we present the following " Demands": SOCIAL DEMANDS. 1. Reduction of the hours of labor in proportion to the progress of production. 2. The United States shall obtain possession of the railroads, canals, telegraphs, telephones, and all other means of public transportation and communication. ii.
