For four hundred years now the ‘
sweep of progress has been to the

grown up the greatest nation in the ‘
world's history, and there seems no :

of the earth exceeds the decrease so ;
long will the steady current 1
from the East to the West continue; ‘
the old world will continue to gour

The Atlantic region s3l become ‘
dense with people. the Mississipgi

and there great trade centers will sd~

continent. Near the point where 1
the Straits of Fucu merges intothst 1

Puget Sound. nature has marked the 1

and whether it is the flow of growth

Arabian tale, retains a share. It; is
the port of entry for the Puget

Powderly‘e Letter.
I The letter of Terrance V. Powder
: ly. General Master Workman of the
‘ Knights of Labor. to National As
sembly No. 300 of that order, de
serves more thought and considera
tion than it is likely to receive in the
hustle and hurry of the closing hours
t of our Presidential campaign.
i Mr. Powderly says. among other
things: "I am a protectionist, and
in many respects difl'er from those
who are preaching protection in this
campaign. Were it not for the labor
organizations there would be no
protection for the men who work.”
These are pregnant words, and
the question which naturally arises
upon reading them and reflecting
upon them is this: How can any
man who believes in organization‘
for the protection of labor support‘
any party but the one which has for
a quarter of a century shaped legis~
lation tor the protection of Ameri
can labor! To put the question in a
concrete form: How can any Knight
of Labor or member of any other in
dustrial organization make up his
mind to vote for a party which has
declared its intention of exposing
American workingmen to unrestrict—
ed foreign competition?
It is not necessary to point out to
any intelligent American working
man that it is precisely the same
to him whether he has to com to
with Workmen who receive but hilt
the wages he gets or with the pro
ducts of such half-price labor. In
either event he must go to the wall,
for human nature is such that the
employer will use cheap labor and
the importer will buy cheap goods if
he can. Now American workingmenl
have organized in their own behalf
and compel the employer to pay fair
wages, and they have so far succeed~
ed that American wages are, as a
rule. about double English wages
in the same kinds of employment.
At this stage of the game the Dem
ocratic party comes a ong and says
to the American workingman: "Vote
for us and we will not legislate to
lower your wages. althoug we will
remove the import duty from for—
eign articles of the kind that you
make.” What would be the conw
queues? The goods made by half
price labor would flood the country,
taking the place of American made
goods, and the American working
man would have to do onc of two
things—work for English wages or
go without work. These are plain.
every day facts, which no one can
gainsay. Can any workingman,
then. who believes in organized la
bor vote for the party] which would
surely accomplis t e disorganiza—
tion and ruin of American labor?—

The following from the Skagit
News is significant: »
The News has very carefully re
frained from mentioning Mr. oor~
hoes heretofore. and never has made
sag disrespectful allusions to that
in ividual. As a reward for its care
in this respect, the News came in
for its share of the venomous fling
at "country papers.” The trouble
was we had been laboring under the
delusion that Voorhees was a fien
tleman, instead of which we find im
to be only a blatant demugugue. He
will find that the “pencil pushers”
will aseist in burying him so deep at
the coming election. that he will be
past all resurrection.
