JUNE 8, 189' THE ALLIANCE -INDEPENDENT. J rt nrnnmim wunaunna GONG RESS Would It Be ft Mora In the Bight Direction? IF IT WOULD I0T. WHY SOT? Some Plaia Facts Teisely Suted That Should Cause a Laboring Man to Think More and Talk Less. 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 father. Kucen V. lb. In L'nouio- live rirmns Magajln.

Whtt use or benefit Is the cripple' equal right to compete for a prize on the race track with a profes sional sp lntr? No principle can be in harmony with right which makes a man's physical or mental endowments a criterion for c tice; yet this is what the law lays down as 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 pet..? No doctrine of equality can be true that makes the time of a person's birth an important factor in his suit for equity. Equal rights, if it means anything equal or right, must mean equal chances to ob tain; if not, our standard of Justice is no better than the brute's the rule of might And our equal chances cao only be deter mined by present circumstances, not by cases of the past. Willis Hudspeth In Western Laborer. It Is a cause of keen regret that the laboring people do not take more interest In their own affairs. Even those who Join the brotherhood frequently lose In terest in labor movements, and (Imply be long as a matter of course, and take It for granted that whoever "pays his dues has done his duty; but he has not Money alone cannot make a good labor organiza tion any mere than money can make a nation. If a country's defenders were acting for money it would be a sorry de- fonse. It takes patriotism to make a brotherhood as well as a nation, and no great degree of success can be attained without it Ever toiler should belong to some labor organization because it ex tends an influence that elevates the con dition of the worklngmen. It is not enough either, to be in good standing; lng; every member should help. Track man's Journal. fhe artisan and laborer have really greater cause for apprehen sion in these United States than In any other so-called liberally governed coun try. There Is an all-prevailing feeling that any wrong can be righted when the time comes that will make it necessary a feeling that the crisis will provide the remedy. That is a slip-shod faith and sure to win defeat. The time to right a wrong is when it appearand not to wait until another is piled on top of It to hold it in place. The ballot is supposed to be all potential for protection, but it needs no argument to show that hope to be only baseless fabric of a dream. Co-operation provides the only reason able promise of emancipation for what are known as the industrial classes, and na tionalism is only general co-operation. Under its beneficent tutelage and control there would be no strikes, no dictators, no landlords, no wasteful competitions. no offensive monopolies. Is it not strange that they who ought to be most deeply interested In adopting and spreading the principles of nationalism should really seem to be the most Indifferent to their success. The Nationalist. 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 government shall not Interfere with the legitimate demands of labor eo long an I am president." Abe Lincoln. Des Moines Artisan. Pennsylvania has fallen in line with New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts and other states which have establithed boards of arbitration for the amicable set tlement of labor disputes.

Governor McKln'.ey doesn't credit this talk of bard times. "This country has too many resources and too much money." Nevertheless the governor was caught in a crash a few weeks ago and was helped out by the charity of his friends. But leaving this go, if times are not hard and money is easy, how does he account for the hundred or two bank failures of the past two months, involving thousands of deposi tors and millions of money?

A Sioux City firm made a demand on a banking firm in that town for the sum of 835,000 which was due; the bank was not able to pay it and made a sight draft on a Chicago bank for the amount The Chicago bank could not meet it at once and the parties growing anxious commenced suit for the recovery of same, and the result was the failure of both banks also tho failure oi twenty- eight other banks connected with these nstitutlons let we frequently nave men stop us on the streets to tell us that our banking system is the best in the world.

"Whosoever eats up. robs and steals the nourishment of another com mits as great a murder as far as in him lies, as he who starves a man or utterly undoes him. Such be does a usurer, and sits the while safe on his stool when he ought rather be hanging from the gallows. Little thieves are put in the stocks, great thieves go flaunting in gold and silk. Therefore is there on earth no greater enemy of man, after the devil, than a grip-money and usurer." So spake Martin Luther, and for speaking it would, in this age of plutocracy, be styled a "crank," "an anarchist" and "a calamity howler." We are simply fighting again over the old battle fields of toe past. Liberty survived the greed and avarice of feu dal kings.
