"VOL. 1.-2STO. 28. A PLEA FOR WOMAN. Hark ! Freedom and progress resounding Throughout this, our glorious land; Serene floats the star spangled banner Wafted by liberty's hand. Man valiantly fights {or his freedom, And nobly he gaineth his right, The power of tyrants is broken, " Equality " gleams on yon height. " Equal " is liberty's watchword, Equal must every one be ; In this our cradle of freedom, The land of the brave and the free. Our brothers, those darker in color, From an inhe....... bondage were freed, And man of all climes and all nations Have wished us a hearty "God speed." Yes, the negro was freed. Oh ! how proudly Floats liberty's flag to the breeze, And the anthems of praise and rejoicing Has reached us from over the seas. By a noble and strenuous effort, A struggle, 'twas rather severe ; The stigma of bondage was taken Away from our couutry, so dear! But hark ! do I hear midst this tumult Of rejoicing, o'er liberty gained Not the cry of distress close beside me. As i...

2.VIGHTS OF LABOR. Preamble and Declaration of Principles of this great and growING Order of Workingmen. The alarming development and aggressiveness of gTeat capitalists and corporations, unless checked, will inevitably lead to the pauperization and hopeless degradation of the toiling masses. It is imperative, il we desire to enjoy the full blessings of life, that a check be placed upon unjust accumulation, and the power for evil of aggregated wealth. This much-desired object can be accomplished only by the united efforts of those who obey the divine injunction, "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread." Therefore we have formed the Order of the Knights of Labor, for the purpose of organizing and directing the power of the industrial masses, not as a political party, for it is more—in it are crystalized sentiments and measures for the benefit of the whole people, but it Bhould be borne in mind, when exercising the right of suffrage, that most of the objects herein set forth ca...

ASSOCIATED ÜBOR PRESS. AUTHENTIC ADVICES FROM RELIABLE CORRESPONDENTS IN ALL SECTIONS OF THE COUNTRY. RICHMONU. Busineßs is about as brisk in this city as it has been for some time at this season of the year, and signs are good for an early spring trade. There are a large number of men out of employment which is always the case at this season. The business committee which has been trying to stir up bad feelings between organized labor and capital have about dried up and blown away. The ringleaders in this disgraceful affair were ex-Judge George L. Christian, Major Robert Stiles, and ex-Colonel John B. Purcell. The first two are lawyers, and the last an ex-colonel of a military regiment All the best element of our business men frowned their disapproval upon the move to create strife, and gave the few dyspeptics no encouragement In fact all our promi nent business men, especially tho tobacconists, (who empiiy two-thirds of the labor employed irrour cit}} are in sympathy with the K. of...

KNIGHT MARE. I ■ RinmoxL., Va., March 9,188 C. Editor The labor Herald: In last Sunday's issue of one of our morning papers there was a letter signed " H." As it was-written in good temper, and is free from the insolent and dictatorial tone which usually characterizes communications from the ; other side, it is worthy of notice as j it is written from a standpoint other than that of " I am a saint and you are a sinner." At present this sacred city j is shaken from centre to circumference ; by " the great conspiracy" of the : Knights of Labor, or rather of the party •• without honor or principle," for enunciating the idea that after they have earned a dollar by the sweat of their brows, that have they the right to spend that dollar wherever they may select, i For this treasonable sentiment they are I hounded by the Sanger Hall set, and '. very often, too, the pulpit and " the impartial press " thunders its anathemas, ■ and the dainty influence of " the best i people " is brought to b...

Boycotting; Its Uses and Abuses. Much has already been said and written in relation to the use of the boycott as a weapon for securing what are deemed just and righteous concessions from employers who are believed to be avaricious and opposed to the consideration of labor as a necessary factor in the production or accumula tion of wealth. No one has yet denied that this weapon is a power, and many large and influential concerns can testify to its efficacy in enforcing the demands of labor as against capital. But there are instances in which the boycott has proven an unfortunate and disastrous experiment to those who attempted its application and use, though it is not necessary to mention them here. Caution must be observed in levying a boycott, by subordinate or ganizations especially: and it is only after a careful* consideration of the chances of success that any organizashould attempt the use of the weapon. A boycott which is only partially effectual is worse than none at all, an...

Business in this city is somewhat improving, and it is probable that all trades will be iv a somewhat healthy condition as soon as the weather fairly opens. The hod-carriers employed on the new union depot in this city struck last week for an increase from $1.25 to $1.50 per day. The demaud was refused by the bosses, and the men are out on a strike. All the brickmasons employed on this building are members of the Stonemasons' Union, yet they refused to sustain these poor laborers in their just demand. This action on the part of the brickmasons has created much dissatisfaction in labor circles, and is the main topic of conversation at present. The matter has been referred to our D. A. Executive Board, and it is pretty certain that the end is not yet No trade union in this city would be able to maintain itself but for the protection extended to them by the K. of L. The hod-c...

POWDERLY TELLS OF HIS LIFE. How the Great Organizer Became a Knight of Labor. Terence Vincent Powderly, the present head of the Knights of Labor, was sitting yesterday afternoon with friends in the parlor of the Astor House. An inquiry was made casually as to Mr. j Powderly's experience with organized labor, and, thus prompted, he related the origin of his efforts for labor and j told of his ideas and his theories. -1 was born in Carbondale, Pa., in j January, 1842, of Irish parents," said Mr. Powderly. "My parents were Catholics. I was their eleventh child, j there being four girls and eight boys ■ the family. My father was a day laborer.

This will create a dissatisfaction hard to overcome, and do the Democrctic party an injury in thfs district. The State printing has all been awarded to J. E. Goode. The rat house of Baughmaa Bros did not get any of this cheese. Richmond and Manchester will do their part in sustaining the strikers and downing Gould. Local option will be decided Monday.

LABOR VICTORIOUS. DEACON RICHARDSON THROWS UP THE SPONGE. i . i Better Wages and Sure Work. The Executive Board of the Protective Association called on President Richardson at the office of the Atlantic City Railroad Company, according to appointments, at 4 o'clock Wednesday afternoon. They were to meet the executive committee of the company to adjust the grievances of the employees. Deacon Richardson received them affably, and talked for nearly five hours to persuade them to let him off easy. It did no good; the Deacon had to come to terms. The executive commit tee of the railroad company consisted of President Richardson, Treasurer Frost, General Tracy and Messrs. Sohroeder and Jenkins. The executive board of the Empire Protective Association was headed by Chairman O'Donnell. The first two hours of the conference were taken up by the Deacon with a homily on strikes, and a wordy protest against having to do so much for his men. " I thought this whole thing was settled a month ago b...
