Would It Be ft Mora In the Bight
IF IT WOULD I0T. WHY SOT?
Some Plaia Facts Teisely Suted That
Should Cause a Laboring Man
to Think More and
LABOR PRESS NOTES.
The Magazine propounds this question:
Would a worklngman's congress be s
move in the right direction? If not, why
not? What can be said In favor of such a
movement? Is the time ripe for it? What
could it do If convened?
Just now what would be a move iu the
right direction f r worklngmen to make?
We refer to organized worklngmen, for
they are the worklngmen who think, who
want to accomplish something for their
own benefit and for the toilers who shall
Inherit their tasks.
We do not now discuss the federation
of organizations, but rather the unifica
tion of the mind forces or organizations,
deliberation rather than federation .
True, all organizations have their an
nual or biennial conventions for delibera
tion and for the enactment of laws for
their government, and It occurs In these
conventions that those whose expressions
are made public are taking even broader
views of labor problems, and it would be
difficult to chronicle a fact more credita
ble to the heads and hearts of men who
have advanced to the responsible posi
tion of leaders.
It is worthy of remark that in all the
labor organizations of the country are to
be found men of broad and liberal views,
students of Industrial affairs, profoundly
interested in the welfare of worklngmen,
but, forever confined to their particular
organization, they are handicapped! they
never advance to their full measure; in a
sense, fenced in. They discuss measures
which relate to their particular organi
zation, when, in fact, labor questions in
their legitimate scope touch the wage,
workers of the nation, and In a labor con
gress there would be opportunities to
bring Into commanding and merited
prominence labor questions in which all
are vitally interested.
We are profoundly Impressed with the
idea that the country cannot know the
wealth of mind iorces which labor pos
sesses until a labor congress Is convened,
and we are quite as much persuaded that
such a congress would prove a revelation
to those who regard labor organizations
with a species of contempt and lofty disr
dain, as composed of men who are small
intellectually.and whose minds are chief
ly occupied In accomplishing small
thlngs.men chiefly desirous of promoting
organized jealousies, or feathering their
own nests, to be wiped out of existence
whenever organized capital deems It pru
dent to squelch them.
We do not state the position of affairs
too narrowly. It is enly required to read
the monopolistic press to verify our dec
larations. In It you will find no compli
mentary declarations relating to organ
ized labor, and the question arises, is or
ganized labor doing these things which
ought to be done, and which can be done,
to change the estimate which a subsidized
press carefully puts forth?
We are not opposed to what organized
labor Is dointt. On the contrary, we have
only words of commendation for what we
see and hear. Labor day gives opportun
ities for parades, for many and valuable
recreations, splendid addresses, etc., but
we advocate something different, better,
higher, more important. We should like
to see a stately parade of labor's mind
forces, free from badges, gewgaws, brass
bands and all things spectacular; a labor
congress of labor's Intellectual men, de
bating questions which day by day, are
becoming the vital questions of the times
In which we live; questions that are up
for debates in the parliaments of the
world, and In which labor, more than any
other Interest, Is concerned. Such a con
gress, composed of labor's representative
men. would arouse continental Interest.
The press would not and could not ignore
It. The plutocratic class would stand
mnziwl at lu nrmwneo. It woul4 be a
proclamation that worklngmen know
their ritrhts and are not ready to be en
slaved. What says the labor res of the
country? The labor congms U up for
debate. May we hope to have the view

Is the cripple' equal right to compete for
a prize on the race track with a profes

No principle can be in harmony with
right which makes a man's physical or
mental endowments a criterion for c

right. We only have by law the right to
try but what good Is it to the man who
is born today and finds the resources of
human prosperity farmed out and mo
nop.lized by the politicians and their

true that makes the time of a person's
birth an important factor in his suit for
Equal rights, if it means anything equal
or right, must mean equal chances to ob

better than the brute's the rule of might
And our equal chances cao only be deter

Under its beneficent tutelage and control

Ia 18G4 the printers struck on the Dem
ocrat and St. Louis Republican. That was
m war times. General Uosecrans was in
command at St. Louis. He detailed a
number of soldiers who were printers to
take the strikers' places.
M. H. Madden and Thomas Gauley,
printers, sent in a report of the same to
President Lincoln. The answer returned
was as follows:
'Ordur those soldiers back to duty in
the ranks. The servants of the federal
