HARTFORD. A. Cnhau 8ii'lm In Parable to the Pro gressive l.iliirntluiiitl ( lull, Conmult A. ('ulian spoke licfore h lure audience in Hartford on Sunday, Ft't). 15, under tlm uiispiren of the l'r Kressive Educational t'luliof Hartford. In an easy and amusing way lit- avc tin outline of Six'ialinni and its aims, im pregnating with its idea many who never had given it a thought. He intcrsiH tnciI Ins lecture with many jiarahlcK anil provcrlH, which were at once atniihinn and to the point. One of tliew.' rutin as follows: "Two nicii were once traveling through a desert, and it ho happened that they ran short of food. One ot the men, however, hail a raw piece of meat and some lire left. So he went up to the oilier ami liegan to weep, ' and said: "Here 1 have a piece of meat and am as hungry as a wolf, and yet I j can t sr.tisfy my cravings, for, w hat nn I do with a raw piece of meat '' Oh, that iH all right," said the other, -1 have i got a as stove ami some dishes, and a j little water. Let us strike up a partner nlnp.' 'Agreed! says the other, joy I fully, we will divide evi rylhmg m half.' 'Oh, no," says the owner of t he stove, 'If we strike up a partnership, you will have to take the rice, and , why, i'll take the meal.' At this the poor owner of the meat and rice raged anil fumed, hut what could he do? II the meal lay much longer it would he come stale and unlit to cat, v hile ol her wise, if he agreed to the terms of the owner of the stove, he would at least have the rice w ilh a Jhirnr of the meat. On the other hand, the owner of the stove had nothing to lose anyway, for the stove would not liecome stale, so he just held on to Ion terms. What was the result? Why, we can all understand that. The poor fellow agreed, gave up his meat and took I he net'. "Hut there is a seipiel to the story. "When the owner ol the meat got home, his wife met him weeping, and told him hor a man had come and had stolen her stove and dishes, and also the last pitcher of water she had ! "The rest you can understand your Bclf" (laughter and great iijiplause.) The w hole of Mr. ( 'iilian s speech was charae-teri.cd by its plain logic and un swerving truthfulness, and we hope that we will have a chance of hearing him again before long. CENTRAL LABOR UNION. A delegate of Onw ard Labor ( 'bib of Hrassworkers presided at yesterday's regular meeting of the New York ( 'entral Union. The Section of Miscellaneous Trades reported in favor of amending the con stitution to the elTeet that live delegates he sent to the central body instead of two by each of (he alliliated Unions. The proposition was referral to the UntoiiH for a general vote. The trick is transparent, as it is intended to give the body a larger iippearanc.Mn spite of its l.ipidly dwindling down to a mere con ference of political heelers and boodlers. A boycott was proclaimed against liobert Clayton, manufacturer of gold leaf, lloboken, N. .1., for refusing to em ploy union men and insulting the Arbi tration Committee of t he C. L. U. Carpenters' Union No. 1110 announced its withdrawal from the C. L. U. The Joint legislative Committee of the central bodies of New York and vicinity reported that Assembly men Nolan and Suler had w ithdraw n their untf-I'inkerton bills and the bill pro posed by the Committee was thereupon indorsed. Upon motion of James 1'. Archibald the legislative committee was instructed to prepare a lull giving the voting franchise to all women in this State supporting themselves by their own labor. Mr. Archibald then introduced another resolution demanding of the Street Cleaning Commissioner to (thoroughly Investigate the charges against John J. Morrison, the well-known boodler and former light in the councils of Messrs. Archibald & I 'o.,w ho is accused of having blackmailed a number of cartmen, for which procedure he w as solemnly kicked out of Ins job as street cleaning inspec tor not because he did the thing, but because he was stupid enough to get caught. Itrenklyn. The Kings County Commtttee t if the V Socialist Labor party will meet next Sunday, Feb. 'J, at ". j.. m . al the IJrookljn Labor Lycemn. The Socialist ic l'rov f (ieniiaiM . In a recent issue of the llrrlimr Uoc'.s blalt, an ollicial account is given of the present state of the German socialistic press. The committee of the party has two ollicial organs: a daily, the I cr iftt'Ts, and the .W in .vit, a scientilic weekly review. There are, besi les, dailies published in the chief cities of the Empire; L'O p rs appearing three times per week ; ? biweeklies; U week lies; one fortnightly review; two comic jiajiers, one monthly, one fortnightly; and u small weekly review. There are also about twenty publications, mostly weeklies, especially devoted to the in terests of trade organizations established on socialistic principles. ""he Sub Treasury bill is nowhere. No amount of silver lymph will cure social consumption. The papers are tilled this week with reports of crimes w hich indicate a ter rible state of morality. With sections springing up in all parts of the country the Socialist Labor parly is in a lair way to national indepen dent political action. Johnstown is again threatened with destruction. Ieft to themselvcH the capitalists of that town have neglected the most idementary precautions for its safety. Bourgeois Parncll has tooled liourgiois Md'aithy. This is of no conseijueiice to the wage-workers of Ireland, who will he fooled anyhow by the bourgeoisie. The surplus labor army, hungry, ragged, destitute, is swelling at a big rale. The police contemplates adding one inch to the length of its club. Speculators are at work spreading reports of disaster to the winter wheat. These fellows never eat so much cake as when llie people have no bread. If the organized labor forces of our cities and fields do not, control the legis lation ol the country it is not because of their lack of the power to do so. If they do not remove any or all of the evils of which they complain the fault is their own. The work of organization that has been in progress, and l hat is jet rapidly advancini;, is the lirst thing to be fully carried out. It is yet very far from complete. It, is hardly more than half done. Much of it has been so loosely done that it cannot abide the trials to which it is often subjected. - John Siiuiilon. S. I., r. Section New York.

(if , mp$) - P L AT OP Socialist Labor Party, Adopted at the Chicago Convention, October 12, 1S89. The Socialist Lalior Party of the United States, in convention assembled, re assert the inalienable right of all men to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. With the founders of the American republic we hold that the purpose of govern ment is to secure every citizen in the enjoyment of this right; but in the light of our social conditions we hold, furthermore, that no such right can be exercised under a system of economic inequality, essentially destructive of life, of liberty, and of happiness. With the founders of this republic we hold that the true theory of politics is tlint 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 the true theory of economies i that the machinery of production mu t likewise belong to the people in common. To the obvious fact that our despotic system of economics is the diret opposite of our democratic system of politics, can plainly be traced the existence of a privileged class, the corruption of government by that class, the alienation of public property, public franchises 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 rolilieiiof the wealth which it alone produces, is denied the means of self-employment, and, by compulsory idleness in wage-slavery, is even deprived of the lieoe-saries of life. I luiiiau 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 find invention are diverted from their humane purpose to the enslave ment of women and children. Against such a system the Socialist Labor Tarty once more enters its protest. Once more it reiterates its fundamental declaration that private property in the natural sources of production and in the instruments of labor is the obvious cause of all economic servitude and political dependence; and iricwx, the time is fast coming when, in the natural course of social evolution, this sy.-tein, througk the destructive action of its failures and crises on the one hand, and the constructive tendencies of its trusts and other capitalistic com binations on the other hand, shall have worked out its own downfall ; therefore, be it Jifudlml, 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 bene tit of his 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 cable 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. 3.
