Alfred Do! ;e whose reat piano,
felt and shoe factory at Doleville,
Herkimer cotiuiy, N. Y., are know
all over the world, ia perliaps the
most noted among- manufacturers
who has sought to bring workmen
and employees into better relations
willi each other. Mr. Dolge's sys
tem of pensions and earning shar
ing is entirely original and has
been so successful that it has at
tracted careful aiieniion bolh in
this county and Europe. The an
nual reunion of the iirm and em
ployees was held Saturday night.
Mr. Dolges address would occupy
four columns of The Citizen and we
can only make extracts from it. In
opening he said:
I am glad to tell you, and I know
that you will be glad to hear that
the year 1891, all in all, has been the
most prosperous that we ever had.
This is our 1 wen'-lhird reunion,
and let me frankly say, that the
pleasure I leel in meei'ng you
all in these social gatherings in
creases year b3r year as I am able to
report to you our growing pros
peri tj' and success.
Eighteen hundred and ninety-one
was not only our most prosperous
year; it was also the most eventful.
The volume of business doue ex
ceeds by far that of any previous
As a matter of fact, we have been
able to keep up within our orders,
although the greater part of the
year we ran the felt factories night
Our friends of the Free Trade
Press had a good deal to say last
year, because I told you that on ac
count of the McKinley bill I could
not increase your wages about 12
per cent, and reduce the hours of
labor to They preended, wiih
an imprudence that was sublime,
that I was geiilng 40 per cent, more
for the le't we make, and was mak
iugan e::. ra profit of over sjCD.CIO
per year because of the McKiule3r
bill, the raise in wages of 12 per
cent, was not near enough and I
should have given 3-011 much more.
Allofj'ou know that we do not
get one cent more 'than -we did be
fore for the goods which we have
made since the passage of the Mc
Kinlcy bill. On the contra r3, the
prices of some of our goods have
been lowered. And with all that I
find mj-self in a position where I
can raise the wages of some of you
felt makers another 10 per cent, this
3-ear because of this verr McKinley
How is this? Our friends the
Free Trader will ask.
Let me tell how it is.
Because we have a basis to work
upon; we are no longer at the
mere3' of the importer of foreign
felts. We can kept our machinery
going the year round and know
that our competitor cannot sell any
cheaper than we can unless he has
superior methods of maku?g felts
1 c protection prevails, if we have
a period of rest from agitation so
that we can conduct our business
on the basis of its present adjust
ment to tariff laws. I believe that
the heurs work can be reduced
within a 3-ear ortwo to nineper da3'.
I think you will agree with me that
this can be safel' done after the ex
periment and the experience of this
It is true that on some of the
machines less goods have been
made, because a machine cannot
possibly make as many revolutions
in nine and one-half hours as it
does in ten hours, but on the whole
we have turned out as rnaiiy goods
during the past 3-ear while working
only nine and one-half hours as we
did working ten. True, there are
some amongst you who will come
late; they would do that even if
they had to work but four hours
I have found, howeve'-, that -the
majority bej.;in to understand more
nntl more that t:me is money, and
(hat no factory can be run success
fully unless- absoluie order be
maintained in every department
Some of our leading men have
propose that a fine be imposed on
all who Oo not keep the factory
hours properly, on the ground that
the other wo kmen have to 'suffer
for it, and I think that yoa will
agree thai it would be, proper to
charge a ten cent fine for every
such case, the fines to be paid to
3our Aid society.
At the risk again being accused
of making propaganda for a politi
cal parl-. I must stale that this re
duction of working hours and
maintenance of the present rate of
wages is only possible if protection
The Free Trader cannot say, as
they did last year, that '.his is an
empty threat. Hardly have they
assembled at Washington than a
bill :.s offered in congress putting
wool on the free list. In Ihe
speeches they make in their news
papers they argue that the road for
i'vee trade wWl be cleaijjs soon as
the wool tariff is smashed.
The Free Traders appeal again
(as lhe3r have alwa3's done) to sel
fishness of the manufaciui er, and
they seem to think that they can
make ,the manufacturer believe
that free wool would be a benefit to
him and his work people. You
might as well tell a teamster to kill
his horses because he has lo pa3'
for their feed.
An American wool manufacturer
know that if wool is put on the Jree
list, Ihe American farmer cannot
afford to ra'se wool and compete
with the foreigner. A large num
ber Amerxan farmers who rsise
siieep would be forced inio ba ok
ruptcy. Our flourishing mills aud fac
tories are an e3'esore to the Free
Tiaders, That is why they want lo
smash and destroy them. Our
prosperous farmers with their
comfortable homes fitted out with
American carpets are dielasteful to
them; that is why they want to
smash the wool tariff, break up the
farmers flocks of sheep aud des
troy our great wool raising indus
try. While the free traders cannot de
slroy all that has been built up
during these years of protection,
fhej- cau cause uneasiness and
irighten capital, which is alwaj'S
Im'd, from embarking in a new
If protection prevails, and I do
not doubt for a moment that it will,
3rou will see one factory after an
other put up in our village as you
have seen factories put up along
the Mohawk valley during the past
3-ear. Dolgesville will prosper as
the entire country has prospered
du. Ing the 3-ear aud a cpjarter, that
the McKinley bMl has been in oper
ation. I believe I voice the sentiment of
the mnjor!t3' of business men, im
porters included, when I say to the
f ee traders assembled at the
Cppilol, at Wash'ng-ion. what Grant
said alter the War of the Rebellion:
"Let us have peace."

AGAINST THE LAMP POST.
TbU Man Mlssd Ills Engagement, bat
Couldn't B Fooled.
A man with his hat cocked on the
back of his head and the top button of
his overcoat buttoned in the middle
buttonhole of his under coat was
backed up against a lamp post on the
corner of an up-town street, writes Ed
Mott in the N. Y. Sun. lie was feel
ing of his chin in an uncertain sort of
way as another man came walking
briskly along and was passing him.
"M1 frien'," said the man against the
lamp post, straightening up a little.
"C'ny' lemme jour hie 3'our ear?'
"Certainly," replied the . person ad
dressed. "What ill) you want with it?"
"Look 'ere, m' frien'," said the man
against the lamp post. "Ziss uzz' side
srei't, orz't zis side s'reet?"
"Why, it's this side of the street, of
course!" replied the other.
"Sanks!" said the man against t he
lamp post. "Sw'at I say! Caf-hie-ealToo'
me on s'ree's N' York, nolli

"'Sanks ver1 mush?' say to pMieonVn,
'ni come ove' here. (.me ove1 hi-re
'n' gossink'n 'bout it, 'nl .jiow'm lay-hid-hiv'u

"Why, what's the matter?" asked
the other man.
"W'assma'r?" said the man against
the lamp post. "P'lieem'n says num'
two hu'r'd'n fif'sev'n's on uzz' side
s'reet, 'n' tai'sso! Num' two huVn
fif'sev'n's on zissside s'reet! Caf-foo'me
on s'ree's N' York, by jce!"
The other man laughed, and was
about to pass on, when the man against
the lamp post stopped him again.
"M'frien'," he said, ,;'ziss t'night or
"Why, it's to-night, of course!" re
plied the other man, looking a little
"Sanks ver' much!" said the man
against the lamp post. "Zhis' got ove'

li'l bit weak. 'Blizh'd t'you, awsame!
''S t'night, is't? Wo' lay f p'lieem'n 'ny

The other man laughed again and
made another start. The man against
the lamp post stopped him once more.
He seized the other man's hand, shook
it warmly and said:
"Sanks ver' mush! 'Slikes not j'ou'll
see me again wuvvse da3"s. 'F3'uh do,
'mus' be sure'n hunt me up, 'nile ta

The other man went on his wajr
laughing, and the man against the
lamp post steered himself into a place
on the corner where the lights in the
windows shone brightly on some nice,
fat bottles in a wicker basket.
NOT THE SAME.
A Clergyman and a Noted Sport Who Are
H1s face was clean-shaven and his
attires though ministerial in its tend
ency, was not marked enough to stanip
him as a divine, savs the N. Y. Com
mercial. He boarded a broadwav oar at 23d
street, and as he dropped into a corner
seat a man with a painfully glossy high
hat, yellow gloves and pearl-buttoned
yellow box-coat, who sat on the oppo
site side of the aisle, gave him a grin
'Well," queried he of the coat, bend
ing forward, "how are they eomin'?"
He was assured that they were ar
riving with satisfactory rapidity.
"I see Jim Corbett and 'Charlie
Mitchell's got a scrap an' my stutf
says Jini'l'l do him. Which d'you
"Neither." answered the other.
"Ain't leerv of a fake, are ve?"
"That's the way I size it up; knock
out or nuthin'. Say, was you over t'
the mill in Hackeusack t'other night?
I thought I see vou in Mullen's corner."
"What night 'was that?" asked the
clean-shaven man with a twinkle in his
"Thursday. What's gettin' into you?
Losin' your mem'ry?"
"My friend," said the other, slowly,
"on Thursday evening I led a prayer
meeting and to the best of my recol
lection did not figure in Mr. Mullen's
corner at Hackensack."
The eyes of the box-coated man
gradually grew to the circumference of
small butter plates.
"T' think of it." he gasped. "Howard
Haekett a-joinin' the church."
"My name is not Howard Haekett.
I am the Kev. Henry Martin Sanders."
"Well, I'm " but through respect
for the cloth Mr. Hackett's friend did
not finish the sentence. Dr. Sanders
retired into a newspaper and the con
versation ended. Howard Haekett is
a bosom friend of John L. Sullivan and
one of the best-known sporting writers
in town. Dr. Sanders is a brainy and
popular clergyman. The resemblance
between them is marvelous in the
exactness and the mistake of the yellow-gloved
gentleman was perfectly
excusable. Up to date the sporting
writer has been mistaken for the divine
about two dozen times and the occa
sions on which the latter has been
hailed as Haekett are not recorded.
The picture of Dr. Saunders pub
lished some time ago in the Association
Herald, a paper published in the in
terest of the Madison Avenue Baptist
church, was such a tine portrait of
Howard Haekett that a couple of his
friends sent a number of Heralds to
the western papers with the story that
Haekett had joined the ministery under '
an assumed name.
