|7Ae Proposed Fusion. \
Notwithstanding the denials pub lished in the daily press, the movement looking to a fusion of the United Nail- £ c -a, Heaters and Rollers with the Amah 6 gamated association is fairly under 1 way. Circulars instructing the nailers' ' lodges to vote upon the question have been forwarded from heaquarters and petitions in favor of fusion are being freely circulated and are rapidly filling. The movement so far has encountered but little, if any, opposition, and it is a reasonable inference that the proposi tion will be carried almost unani mously. On the part of the Amalgamated as sociation the expression of opinion is not so pronounced, but considering the great benefit the union of the two bodies will be to all classes of iron workers, there is no doubt the Amal gamated association will heartily favor the movement. In union there is strength. Separated into two or more bodies the iron workers not only find themselves weaker when they come to encounter organized capital, but they are constantly in danger of antagoniz ing each other. Amalgamation has been tested in many a hard contest, and its history demonstrates that for mobiliz ing all the strength of labor and the proper handling of all its resources it is the only wise plan that has yet been discovered. Jt^""" 1 In this connection it might be well for our manufacturers to consider the effect which the proposed union will have upon the nailers' scale. The ten dency of wages of iron workers is up ward; advances have been granted to several classes during the past year, and it is already announced that the new Amalgamation scale will demand a considerable advance over present wages. The compromise scale, at which the nailers have signified their willing ness to resume work, is not likely to meet with favor in the Amalgamated association. That body will very likely insist upon a return to the 21-cent scale. The manufacturers now have an opportunity of closing with the nailers at l'J cents and thus forestalling any demand that may be made by the Amalgamated association. Our manu facturers now have a chance of saving themselves serious trouble in the near future, and we point the way for them in the hope that it may result in good to all classes concerned.— News-Letter. To Young Men Who Want to- Marry. Select the girl. Agree with the girl's father in politics, and with her mother in religion. If you have a rival, keep an eye on him ; if he is a widower, keep two eyes on him. Don't swear to the girl that you have no bad habits. It will be enough for you to say that you never heard your self snore in your sleep. H there is a bothersome little brother who has a habit of coming in just at the time you don't want him most, and who takes great interest in you, and makes unfeeling remarks about your nose, take him regularly the latest Puck. Don't put much sweet stuff on paper. If you do, you will hear it read in after years when your wife has some especial purpose in inflicting upon you the se verest punishment known to married men. Go home at a reasonable hour in the evening. Don't wait till the girl has to throw her whole soul into a yawn that she can't cover with both hands. A little thing like that may cause a cool ness at the very beginning of the game. If you sit down on some molasses candy that Willie left on the chair, while wearing your new summer trous ers for the first time, smile sweetly and remark that "boys will be boys.'' Re serve your true feelings for future refer ence. If, on the occasion of your first call, the girl upon whom you have placed your affections looks like an iceberg and acts like a quiet cold wave, take your early leave and stay away. Wo man, in her hours of freeze, is uncer tain, coy and hard to please. In cold weather finish saying good night in the house. Don't stretch it all the way to the front gate, and thus lay the foundation for future asthma, bronchitis, neuralgia and chronic ca tarrh, to help you worry the girl to death after she has married you. Don't he about your financial condi tion. It is very annoying to a bride who has pictured for herself a life of luxury in your ancestral hall to learn j too late that you expect her to ask a ; bald-headed parent, who has been uni-1 formly kind to her, to tsW jnrtjn out of the cold. Don't be too soft. Don't say " these little hands shall never do a stroke of work when they are mine," and " you shall have nothing to do in our home but to sit all day long and chirp to the ; canaries," as if any woman could be ! happy fooling away valuable time in j that sort of style; and a girl has a fine retentive memory for the soft things and silly promises of courtship, and occasionally in after years, when she is ; washing the dinner dishes or patching the west end of your trousers, she will remind you of them in a cold, sarcastic ! tone of voice.— Ex. General Redress of Wrong. It is now a prime necessity upon the part of all concerned to come to con clusions as to the differences which ' now exist between employers and em- '■ ployed. This is so because the disturb ance to business is widespread and in jurious, and promises to increase in rapid progression the longer the trou ble lasts. That so extensive movements of thir character could be and not upset the ordinary conditions is not to be ex isted, and that to thus upset them is justifiable to attain great results is free-! ly admitted. But it should be remem bered that unless permanent good shall be secured the loss will be infinitely greater than the gain. No new strikes should be undertaken without the most mature deliberation, and with every regard for what is fair, rather than what may be won in the turbu lence of the movement It is clear that the winnings thus made connot last long enough to make them worth while, and that without justice at the foundation of demands, re-action must COM in time that will place the work men in worse condition than they were before. These strikes that are in pro gress should be arbitrated with due respect for conciliation, and ac effort be made to join honest labor ar.d honest capital in a sturdy effort to secure the righting of the great wrongs by the laws of the land. This may be done peacefully if employers and employees will determine to exert their rights as citizens in honest and capable local and general government. Until they con clude to do this they will have the ever recurring strike and lockout, the misery to the working people and the bankruptcy to capital, which has re sulted so largely through the handing over the country to professional politic ians, who are the tools of monopolists. to-day of Gould and his kind, to-morrow of their successors. Wv. in firmly [standing by rifbts and in justice to capital, but we cm see no way to these except by the ex ercise of the constitutional privilege of the citizen to insist on equality* in its purest sense by means of the coßnbined power of American " sovereigns." The opponents of this —the men who are at the bottom of the wholesale rascality which has brought about disturbance of business through their greed, who have ruled the many that they might live and be prosperous on labor and on ! honest capital—howl in terror at the merest intimation of the ballot as a re . dressor of wrongs. They denounce through their purchased press the : slightest suggestion of workmen ''going into politics," for the reason , that they know that such an appeal ( would result in the formation of a par ty by the honesty of the country, and that it would sweep them and their ne , farions practices out of public life, and give to American citizens in fact that > which the constitution guarantees in words, equality of all before the law. A class party would be a misfortune, but the workingmen taking hold politi cally would not be a class party, mas much as an effort in this direction would be joined by employers and em ployees alike. The only class left out in the cold would be the politician ped dlers of public rights and their employ ers, and these would be welcome to form a class party. Their hypocritical and essentially selfish howl against "the workmen in polities'' should berated at its true value and treated with the contempt so flimsy a device deserves. ' — Labor Tribune. Knights of Labor. .- We believe it was pulished of Frank ' lin Landers, while making his canvass for Congress, in referring to the badi nage of opposition papers on his busi ness of pork packing he declared that " anybody what can't stand the smell of a hog is a 1-e-e-t 1-e to nice." And so we thought a few weeks since when Chief Authur, of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, objected to the Knights of Labor because the Order placed skilled mechanics on a level with "common laborers," that any wage worker, no matter how skilled, who is unwilling to aid his less fortunate brother in working out the knotty problems that may confront him and in turn be assisted in the same direction, is entirely " too nice " for this mundane sphere and should be translated to Mammon's Elysium, there to become the liveried charioteer of some obese millionaire and bask eternal the smiles of his red-haired and cross-eyed female off-spring. It seemed incredible that a man occupying Mr. Arthur's position should give expression to such a senti ment, and we persuaded ourselves that it was one of the customary lies of the Associated Press until we read in the papers recently that the head of the Brotherhood is possessed of holdings that twenty-five years ago would have been considered princely. It is plain that Mr. Arthur has let his rich sur roundings get between him and the ranks of labor from whence he sprang. 1 That being the case his sympathy is no longer with the toilers in life's battle, I and the growth and usefulness of the ! Brotherhood will be impaired by his arrogance, The Order of the Knights is a grand conception, since" it contem plates the enrollment under one banner of every man and woman who toils and produces wealth, no matter what ! their country or creed, and its ascend j ency in the affairs of the nation will j make this Republic a land of equality and justice. It goes to the humblest toiler and first teaches him to hope, then to study and improve his mind, to take care of his body ; it tells him that labor is noble and holy ; that it is ; the philosopher's stone, and everything ,it touches turns to wealth; it teaches him the higher duties of citizenship ; in short, it makes known to him the grand estate Jfrom whence we have fallen through the influence of avarice, greed, , false pride and teachings, and then shows him how we may regain our lost heritage. It will permit no distinctions 1 and recognizes but one standard— that of true and honest manhood. •• What tho' on homely fare we dine, Wear hodden grey, and »' that; Give fools their silks and knaves their wine, A Man's ■ man for a' that.
