"VOL. 1.-ITO. 35. KNIGHTS OF LABOR. Air—"Scotts Wita ITae." Knights of Labor who would bleed For the cause ye nobly plead. For the justice that ye need— 0, list ye now to me ! Monopoly, with heart of steel, Monopoly, with iron heel Would crush us all beneath the wheel Of In-art less tyranny! Who a traitor now would be. To the wild woods let him flee, Drown himself beneath the sea, Or nobly with us fall! See the chieftains Gould controls. Haughty, proud and guilty souls; Whilst the thunder roars and rolls *| Let these swaggerers brawl! With your purpose well defined, With stout hearts and stubborn mind, Steadily your axes grind, And calmly wait your time ! Calmly wait, with lips compressed; Calmly firm, with arms at rest. Saw wood and do your level best, And do no act of crime ! Then, by all in heaven and earth; Then, by your heritage and birth, Only honesty and worth Will in the end succeed ! Though our common foemen jeer. Though they slight our cause so dear. Call us conspirators a...

THE KNIGHTS OF LABOR. Their Aim and Object, as Expressed by General Master Workman, T. If. Powderly. In answer to numerous inquiries in regard to the political status of the Knights of Labor, General Master Workman Powderly says: "As an order we have a higher mis sion to serve than the forming of a mere political party. Any one reading our declaration of principles will see that, while we are seeking reforms that in some instances come through the ballot-box, yet by far the highest mo tive that concerns us is the education of the masses to that point where they will fully see and know not only their own wrongs and degradation, but see a full and final solution of the labor problem; and when this is attained, each will see clearly for himself in his own way the only path that leads to liberty and equality. When this ad vanced point is once attained, then will the party that is to carry the desired measure to success be evolved. It will be evolved slowly and almost imper ceptibly. But...

■VOL. 1.-_tsTO. 36. For The L&Toor Herald. FRIENDSHIP. When the sun of prosperity gilds life's pathway, And all along the route life's pleasures thickly crowd, O, then many seeming friends, smile kind ly on us, And promises of butting eonwUncy are vowed. But are they friends, indeed, honest, sin cere and true. Should the sunny path wind into dark, deep'ning shades.

TO THE VOTERS OF THE CITY We, the working people and voters of the City of Richmond, having ap pealed in vain to the political parties, that have for years controlled our city government, for certain measures that we in our judgment consider, not only to be for our own, but the public good generally, deem it inexpedient to sup port either political party in the coming municipal election foi the legislative departments of the city government, but to vote for men regardless of all for mer party associations who will carry out our wishes and legislate for the public good and not for a class. We believe that a majority of the City Council and Board of Aldermen feel it to be their sacred duty to look solely after the interest of the wealthy class, regarding that class as being the tax-payers and therefore entitled on that account to their first consideration, and looking upon those who earn their living by labor as secondary in importance and the last on all occasions to claim their offi...

What the K. of L. Can Do. Oxford, Me. is one of the few towns in this section in which the K. of L. have organized and grown strong without ' encountering much opposition. In the adjoining town of Norway a large por tion of the citizens oppose the K. of L with a bitterness that has made the name of Spinney and the Norway syndi cate famous or rather infamous in every part of the Union. For this reason it was with fear and trembling that an Assembly was organized here February first An old hall was hired in the outskirts of the village, the windows carefully covered up, and only a single lamp lighted. The twenty-four persons who came to be organized came singly and in silence. The fitful rumbling of the winds through the leafless branches of the lofty elms that are the glory of our village made them start in fear j the shouts of children sliding on a distant hill sounded in their excited ears like I the shouting of a sheriff's posse. How little did the gallant twenty-four, as they for...

37. BROTHER EVER. 'Twas a stylish congregation, that of Tlieo pliratus Brown, And its organ was the biggest and the finest in the town, And the chorus—all the paper* favorably commented on it, For 'twas said eacli female Maker had a forty dollar bonnet. Now in the " amen corner " of the church sat Brother Eyer, Who persisted everj- Sabbath day in Hinging with the choir; He was poor, but genteel-looking and bis heart as snow was white, And his old face beamed with sweetness when he sang with all his might. r +-*—- Hi-; voice was cracked and broken, age had touched his vocal chords, And nearly every Sunday he would mis pronounce the words Of the hymns, and 'twas no wonder, be was old, and nearly blind, And the choir rattling onward, always left him far behind. The chorus stormed and blustered, Brother Eyer sang too slow, And then he used the tunes in vogue an hundred years ago; At last the storm-cloud bursted, and the church was told, in fine, That the brother must stop singing, or th...

ASSOCUTEDUBOR PRESS AUTHENTIC ADVICES FROM RELIABLE CORRESPONDENTS IN ALL SEC TIONS OF THE COUNTRY. RICHMOND, VA. No general move or concerted action has been taken on the eight hour ques tion, but a large number of our manu facturers have adopted eight hours at a day's work, and it is confidently ex pected that one after another will fall in line until the system becomes gen eral. The strike at the Richmond Granite Company's quarry has been settled by the Executive Board of D. A. 84 at an advance averaging about fifteen per cent It is reported that the boycotted rat printing office of Baughman Brothers has very nearly reached the wall, and that a collection for their benefit was taken up at a recent meeting of the the Board of Trade, amounting to $380. The boycott is being pushed this week with more vigor than ever.

The Lesson of Labor. A recent examination of the Eastern Penitentiary of the State of Pennsyl vania revealed the fact, as stated by the warden, that of thirteen hundred con victs, only thirteen of them had been mechanics. This is suggestive and illustrates the conservative, healthful and moral influence of the training necessary for the successful prosecution of mechanical pursuits. As stated by the warden, "Of doctors, lawyers and other professional men we get plenty, but mechanics don't get here." It may be safely affirmed that the most conservative, unobtrusive and useful element of any community is com posed of those who are engaged in mechanical employment In the pro cess of learning their mental capacities are developed with uniformity and their time consumed in acquiring a knowl edge of a trade, which if industriously pursued, is certain to yield a fair living. They are not driven to the cultivation of their wits to make a living without labor, or to encourage a species of sh...

ASSOCIATED LABOR PRESS. AUTHENTIC ADVICES FROM RELIABLE CORRESPONDENTS IN ALL SEC TIONS OF THE COUNTRY. HOUSTON. Social to The Lalior Herald. Labor matters are unusually quiet in ' our vicinity, and there is a dearth of employment in all lines. The Carpenters' Brotherhood is the ' only trades union that is pushing or ganization here. This branch is also discussing the eight hour movement, but as yet nothing has been done. The planing mill men are contem plating the organization of a Millmen's Protective Union. This branch of la bor is quite numerous here and could organize a strong union. The Knights of Labor are going for ( ward as steadily as ever.

|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 organiz...

They have accepted nine hours as a compromise, after having stood out three weeks for eight hours. Prior to May 3rd the bosses recognized the card system (not general) but their ultimatum now is that no workmen will be employed by them who will not renounce the card system in toto. This i tough on the organ ized carpenters and a bitter pill to swallow, but they will accept the situation for the present and bide their time. They have a benefit every night during the week at Ford's Grand ; Opera House, all the proceeds to go i into the treasury of the carpenters' organizations after expenses.
