ciiun to the BKP.I It is the opinion among
South Caiollna people th.itthc action ot the
legislature of that state , toioidding the organ-
l/atlon of tlio Iviilglitsol 1/iboi , will give a
new Impetus to tlio oNodns of the coloreo
people , and that dining the winter and loin
Ing spring largo numbeis will leave foi Ar
kansas and Texas. The agents of the rall-
waj companies and coloni/atlon societies in
the last named states arc already golnz Into
Soutn Carolina , and there Is a movement lei
exporting them In latge numbeis to the south
paitof Calilornla. The colony agents will
pay their faro in advance and take it out of
their wages ufler airlval In monthly install
ments. The laws of South Caiollna aicmoic
opiresslvo in theli provisions than those of
other states , and landloids have laboiers
and tenants entirely at their meicy.
The landloid has by law a fast lien ou the
ciopof his tenant , who cannot move Itvitli -
out his permission and bulldo/ing is lesoited
to to compel the eoloicd producers to sell their
crops tollieii landlords who will not pay
cash but give store orders , which aio not
negotiable. The merchant on whom they arc
given chaiges exhorblt-uit prices lei everj'-
thtng , but the bujer cannot go elsewhere to
trade , as helms no money. Ko emploje of a
plantation ot clsovvhcie can leave his em-
ploj er without the consent of the latter and sv
written permit. No othei man will employ
him until ho presents such a permit ,
and thcrcloio ho Is helpless It Is be
lieved that the oitranlzatlon of the Knights
would abolish the svstom ot peonacc , and
that is why the legislature has passed a law
prohibiting any such thing. There is a de
mand for labor In Arkansas and Texas.
Uettor wages aic paid and there arc no op
pressive law s. The railway companies are
engaged with tlio plantcis In the Importation

CnirAoo , Dee. 22. fS | > ecial Teleg-am to
the HII : : . | JoeOrecnliut , the socialistic labor
igltator , champion ot tlio condemned ami eh-
sts and employe of ilio city of Chieapo
under Mayor Harrison , says , In an Intenlow
: lils alteinoon : "A war Is on between the
Knlijhts of Libor and the old fashioned
trades unions , thoicsiilt ot which Is of im
mense IniDortancoto the laboi element of the
country. It Is the decision of the iiuestion ,
'Shall all wageworkeis combine for the ben-
eht of all wasewoikcisV 01 shall only tlie
skilled tiades sincere all other .voiklngmcn
that tliey themselves might get high wages'.1'
The Knights of Labor Is a union ot wage-
wet liuis , whcroas the old trades union Is a
monopoly to corner tlio maiket in laboi and
foreo the wagesof tlieli own paitleulai ciaft
up. They don't e.ire how manv elilldicn are
compelled to work long hours foi pittances
DO long as they get thelt high wates. There
are only a few of these trade unions which
now stand out against the Knights ot Labor.
Theie arc tlio plumber. " , who woik night hours
a day for 4 , and the boss plumboi charges SI
tie i hour foi the work his employes do. Tlio
motherhood of Locomotlvo Kniclneeis l.s nn-
othci trades union wlmso mombuis get sala
ries ot about 31,300 per yeai. Then presi
dent , Arthur , Is reputen to be .vorth about
$1011,000. What do jou suppose they eare
whether anybody else besides engineers has
anv rights secured to him. The Amalga
mated Iron and Steel WoiUers Is a monopoly
sulTeied by the CIHCC of the U nlted States to
putaprohibltoiy tariff on W.IKCS and ovnrv
year to lix the settle of wages for the ensuing
twelve inonthb. 'I lioso do/en trades monop
olies utmost foi bid appientlcoslilp , so that
tlioip aio piactietlly no boys leaining ma
chinists' 01 othei skilled Iraile.v If you
want an old-st\le , all-aiound skilled work
man , you have to send to Kuropo for him.
The old trades union has thus do\ eloped into
a public nuisance by making It impossible
for the i King veneration to learn trades. J'hu
Knlphts of Labor are now tryinic to compel
every trade and laboi oigani/ation
to go into the knights so as
to abolish the old Hellish system
of sepaiatc and distinct unions , which weio
povvei less to help each other even had they
been willing. Our object in thus making a
consolidation Is to bi ing the issue of capital
and labor Into the range of practical politics.
Wo demand that the state Introduce indus
trial education and manual trnlnhn ; into all
the public bchools , so that the rising genera
tion mav leal n the rudiments of hamllcialt.
'J hen , it OHO trade is ovei-t-rowdcd , the ) > eo
pie may go Into another instead of lying
Idio and suflerinu tor bicad. The Knights
ot Labor me committed to the intiodiictlon
ol tlieelght-houi working day lot all people.
Wo are in the midst of a social revolution in
this countiy , nnd the Knights of Laboi iep-
resent the same movement in the United
States as the socialists do In Ucimany. We
are to have a Knights ot Labor presidential
ticket which will poll n million vi./cs / In 18SS.
In Kurope such labor movements can ho
