T. T. POWDEKLY.
Editor Fabmebs' Alliance: Being
constant reader of your paper I have
MM the statement repeatedly made la
tba columns of Tub Aixiancb that M
Powderly waa foreign born. I think
yon are mistaken. T. V. Powderly was
born January 22, 1649, in the city of
Carbondale, Pa. Ill parents came
from Ireland. "Terence" went to icbool
U Carbondale until he reached the tg
of 13, when he felt that he must do soma
thing, and found employment with the
Delaware & Hudson Canal Co. vV hen
he reached the age of i? he was appren
Wood to learn the trade of machinist in
the Delaware Hudson shops. After
ervlnsr 8 Tears a. this trade he went to
Soranton, Pa., and at the age of 20 was
nployed in the locomotive shop of the
ueiaware, uacicawana western ii.au
road Co. His first entrance in the Labor
Union was in 1871. when lie joined the
-.Machinists and Blacksmiths Union" of
.Scranton. In 1873 some three weeks
iter Jay Cooke's failure he was dis
charged from the Delawaie, Lackawana
4k Hudson shops because of his activity
la anion matters.
Being nnable to again find work in
this locality he went west and worked
for some time in gallon, Ohio and Oil
City, Pa. In 1873 he went back to
Scranton and was employed by the
Lackawana Iron & Coal Ce.
If r. Powderly 's political life liegan in
1678, he being elected May or of Soranton
on the 19th of Feb. It was said of him
"Soranton never had a better Mayor."
He was re-elected in 1880 and again in
1683. Mr. Powderly joined the K. of
L. in 1870, although be had been sworn
in as one of its members in 1874 He
was elected General Master Workman
of the K. of L. . in Sept. 1879. Eleven
times he has been chosen to the loadei
hip of the most powerful Labor organi
sation in existence, a demonstration of
confidence unparalleled in the history
f the labor movement of the world.
What Mr. Powderly is he owes to his
own brave heart, pure, abstenious
industrial life and practical purpose.
I have hurriedly sketched the above,
hoping that you will give it room in
your columns. I have been a member
f the K. of L since 1831, and received
the above facts direct, and I know them
to be trut. If my niomory is correct,
and I think it is, you will find a brief
skotch of Mr. Powder);' life in the
"Journal of the Knights of Labor"
November 27, 1890, published just lifter
the general assembly at Denver, Colo
rado. "In conclusion let me say that I was
born and raised in lows, and have been
in the reform work since 1878, aad for
President and Vice-President In 1803 I
know of none better than James B.
Weaver and Terence V. Powderly, the
Gladstone and Parnoll of Amorlca.

It is very common for those who es
teem themselves practical men of af
fairs to sneer at reformers as idealists,
impractical men, dreamers, visionary
men &o. Then let us look Into this ideal
Nothing, probably, exists in the civil
ised world which was not an ideal be
fore it was a reality. Any exception to
this statement would be hard to iin.iglne,
for the, well known reason that a
thought always precedes an act. So it
comes to pass that "thoughts make
tracks." The reaper and tho binder
was first thought of, then formulated
into an ideal, then made tracks in wood
and iron, and results in a reaper and
binder. This will apply to every inno
vation on the old fashioned methods,
tools and wages of society. Nor does
it fail in politics, religion or science.
. True, some ideals have not yet been
realized, and may never be realised.
The ail ship is an ideal, as was the
steamboat and the railroad. Whether
the air ship will ever be a realised suc
cess we cannot say. The volume of
doubt on that point is large, but no
larger than it was at one time touching
the steamboat ard the railroad. The
illustrations on this point are so nu
merous and so unanswerable that they
need not be followed.
The applleation is easily made. The
ideal in our Alliance demands are so
certainly based on natural justice be
tween men and men that we are amazed
at the stupidity of thousands and tens
of thousands, equally interested with
ourselves, in not extending to us a help
ing hand. They are too bund to see it,
too deaf to hear it, too dead to feel it.
Nay, they actually hinder us in doing
our work. Their words, acts and votes
go to kill all we are doing. The good
we seek is just as much a benefit to
them as it can be to us, and yet they op
pose us every way.
What then shall we def As Pentecost
has done we can all do if we wish, we
can get disgusted, discouraged and quit,
or we can march on as the nobis arm)
of martyrs and heroes before us have
done, until victory is won, until the
ideal is realized.
To quit, or go back, or become indif
ferent, is to join all that large host of
faint hearts, cowards, deserters, seekers
vf ease, tie . whose names and lives have
only brought shame and reproach to
tutman history. Every true heart revolts
at the thought of that. True men and
women will cot do it, for true men and
women have the qualities of virtue,
courage and perse verence.
Facing then the work to be done, we
lieheld a vast array opposed to us. Mil
lions of money, corporations without

The Nicaragua canal scheme is
nothing more or less than a iob of
gigantic proportions, engineered by
its projectors not to increase the com-

in tne furtherance of this sohbtna it
is proposod that there shall be issued
$SO..000,000 of interest and dividend
bearing securities for a work whoso
cost, estimated by the canal company's
own engineers, at tho outsldo figure,

It Is further proposed that eono-mus
shall bo induced, on bohalf of this gl

tee by Unltod States bonds to the
amount of $100,000,000 to nav for
this work, which the company's en
gineers estimated would reoulro onlv

here a scheme to practically mako

And the most astounding feature of

fact, that Presldont Harrison, la his

The Interstate Commission.
A recent decision of the United
States supreme court declares that a
witness can not be com polled to toti

This practically makes the inter
state commission powerless, destroy
ing its utility as a moans of regu
lating the railways of the country.
As tho interstate commerce com
mission has never boon anything more
than a farce, if the supreme court
should wipe it out entirely it would
be a blessing. The people long ago
ceased to look to It for any relief, as
the commissioners have been looked
upon as more the frionds of the rail
way than the people.
It is said there is a compensation
in all things. Shorn of its power by
judge-made legislation, the Interstate

The whistling girl . ., does not

of presentable lips to whistle; thin

One reason why there is so much
smoking in public places whore ladies
and children, as well as men, congre
gate, is because of . the moral cowardice
of the average American. He will
allow the filthy nuisance te be perpe
trated almost anywhere and at any
time without remonstrance, simply
because he is afraid of abuse or of
ridicule. In this respect he compares
very unfavorably with the English
man. Another cause is the entire
want of will among the ladies. If
every woman to whom tobacco is a
nuisance and that means ninety
nihe out of every hundred would
make her feelings plainly known when
