0b?" The moulders at Deere's plow
works who refused to accept the late reduc
tion in wages still hold out and say they wi'l
not go to work unless the old prices are re
established. Efforts have been made i
till their places with others, but thus fur
without success. A number who were
offered work, on learning the situation of
affair, declined to iuterfere. This is not,
properly f peaking, a strike, but is what the
moulders term a "hold-out." The reduc
tion is wholly unjust and uncalled for and
still further illustrates the determination
of the mercenary capitalists to compel
labor to acknowledge subservience to the
tyrannical course of the manufacturer.

Y est V irgima, ot August 19 says
Our friend Mr. Kerr died about 7 o'clock
this evening. I have been by his side for
two days. His last hours were painless, as
he so much desired. His composure was
as remarkable as it was heroic. He was
thoroughly content and prepared lor the
unseen world, lie was conscious, aud in
telligent, gentle and brave to the end
His disease was consumption of the bowels
but toward the last his lungs were involv
ed. He has been for some days past, in
fact, t disemi odied intellect, a mere skele

this remote spot to soften this blow to his

around his dying bed has been done, and

has always pursued that course, and prob
ably will continue to' do so. The hard
workicg mechanics cam every dollar they
make and, at the old prices, were only
airly paid for their labor. To ask them
no to accept a still further reduction is
an outrage and imposition which, it seems,
will meet determined opposition. lhe
rm of Deere & Co. has made mammoth
fortunes already, and now pay less for
materials that, tor years past; the prices ol
lows and cultivators remained unchanged:
the farmers get no beuefit from the pro
posed reduction in wages. These being
the facts there exists mo excuse
whatever for compelling the mechanic
i aid the manufacturers in Day-
r- T
mg tor improvements. in conver
sation with one of the moulders, this
morning, he stEted that 8 wheels per day
was as much as any man ought to make,
and that it required a person of strength
and endurance to do that amount of work;
that it was, in tact, more than any man
hould do, as he invariably injured his
health by working so hard. In fact it re
quired overworking to accomplish it. The
health m the labonug man is a secondary
consideration with the matiufacturer,bow-
ever. What do Deere & Co., care whether
the men employed lose health and strength
so long as the amount ot work required
is duly periornit-d f livery year the lines
are drawn closer and closer and the heel of
oppression grinds more firmlv into the
necx ot labor, lhe Gazette and the Luton
will, of course, contiuue to uphold the cap
italist as against the mechanic, but they
cannot justify the recent reduction in labor
at Deere's clow works.
