THE FIELDS OF LABOR.
6 WIN TON PRESENTS A CAREFUL
SURVEY OF THE SITUATION.
RQ' -ent Significant Strike Failures-
Mr. Powderly’s Influence and Atti
tude The Labor Party in Politics.
•Jm-respondence Washington Kiwniny Star.
New York, Aug. 30.—The portentous
changes which have been going on in the
“labor movement” are not yet at au end, as
we see from recent events. They bear upon
it as an organized body, as a political agency
and as a regulator of wages and conditions
of labor. In all these respects it lias become
evident that some deep ami wide-spread In
fluences are at work.
The number of strikes that have col
lapsed since the beginning of the year is far
greater than that of any other recent year.
The Labor Commissioner for New York, in
his last official report, shows that three
quarters of the strikes of the previous year
in this State were successful, but it is a fact
that the statistics gathered by Brad
street from January last to the
present time, show' that over three
fourths of all tlio strikes of the
present year have conic to grief. In fact,
out of 300,000 strikers so far this year, not
more than 50,00(1 have gained any
such advantage as to lie deserving of
the name of success. \V<> have to go
back many years to find anything that looks
like a precedent in this dismal state of
things. Among the twelve or fourteen large
strikes of this year it is hard to mention
any genuine success, other than the strike
of the bricklayers of Chicago, who not only
secured the eight-hour rule for their trade,
but established a method of settling future
disputes with their employers. And the
bad luck continues up to "this day. The
great strike in the cotton mills at Cohoes
has just broken down simultaneously with
the strike of t he leather workers at Newark.
It has been among the unluckiest of years
for strikers, whether they were coke makers
and miners in Pennsylvania, shoemakers in
Massachusetts or coal and freight handlers
in New Jersey and New York. It
is a common notion, which is prob
ably correct, that this bad luck
is largely attributable to the new practice
of combination for resistance by employers.
The shoe manufacturers of Massachusetts
combined against their wage-workers; the
coke and coal corporations of Pennsylvania
did the same thing ; so did the leather man
ufacturers of Newark, and a similar prac
tice has been adopted in scores of other
cases, as every reader of tlio newspapers is
aware. The combination of the Chicago
Master Builders failed in the stand they
took, and the combination of the stove
manufacturers cannot boast of having
scored a victory; but these are merely ex
ceptional to the rule. The weight of
the combined capital in any given industry
has almost always proved too heavy for the
labor and its service.
LABOR'S losses during the year.
The influence of these facts upon labor or
ganizations during the present year have
been calamitous. The largest or all great
organizations—the Knights of Labor—have,
within a year, lost much more than half its
membership. In New York, New Jersey,
Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Connecti
cut the falling off has reached very nearly
two-thirds, and in some of the Western
States the ratio is fully as high. These state
ments are based either upon official figures
published by district assemblies or upon
the votes cast at the recent elec
tions for delegates to the General
Assembly. The total membership that will
he there represented is likely to fall short of
.'>oo,ooo, and though even this is proof that
the Knights are yet a large body, it is any
thing but a fulfillment of the promises of
last year, when Mr. Powderly boasted of
twice the strength, und when the flood-tide
had to bo checked by the famous “halt.”
But far more serious than this alarming (io
dine are the bickerings by which the organ
ization. has been demoralized in many
? darters, not only in such cities as Chicago,
hiladelphia, Boston, and New York, but
in lesser places like Hartford, Newark, De
troit, Brockton, Denver, etc., as well as
outlying “locals” here and there.
The ranks are being weakened and under
mined by internal dissension upon matters
of policy, upon the new constitution, upon
the trades assembly question, upon the ac
tion of the executive board, which is but
feeble, dictatorial, upon the pay of officials,
upon the management of strikes, upon the
heavy taxes at all times, and the slight dis
bursements in special cases, upon the hand
ling of the funds, upon the numerous
failures to sustain the brethren in their
battles upon the machinations of the “Home
club,” and upon sundry peculiar notions
often obtruded by Mr. Powderly. Then
the organization is further weakened just
now by the hostile attitude toward the most
powerful trade unions, including the
Brotherhood of Carpenters, tho Cigarmuk
ers’ International Union, Amalgamated As
sociation of Steel and Iron Workers, and
the bodies in the rival Federation of Labor.
The recent election of national delegates in
half a dozen of the chief cities of the coun
try have shown the effects of these dissen
sions and bickerings, so much so that there
is r prospect of the overthrow of the Gen
eral Board, the new constitution, and the
legislation of last year at the convention
which wifi be held in a few weeks hence.
the most astounding sign
of the changes in progress has just been
given by the defection of the notorious Dis
trict Assembly No. 48, of New York, from
its allegiance to the Powderly administra
tration. This district, the membership of
which has fallen off one-half since the last
convention, and which for years has been
Mr. Powderly’s main support, has elected
opposition delegates, dethroned the “Home
Club,” and struck for changes that imply a
reversal of the jiolicy now predominant at
headquarters. It is not easy for those who
are outside of the organization to compre
hend the full moaning of the revolt thus
carried to success in the district referred to,
but it will be seen at the convention in
October next. It is possible that Powderly
may be able to hold on yet another year to
the office which gives him a salary ten times
greater than is received by a majority of
the members of Ihe Knights of I*bor, hut
even this has lately become doubtful. His
reliance is upon the fact that there is no
oilier really popular candidate in the field.
It is yet in the power of this remarkable
organization of the Knights of 1 Abor to
recover the strength which it lost, and to
put a stop to the bickerings and dissensions
by which it has lately been distracted; but
these ends can be gained only by a larger
statesmanship than is now displayed by its
The “labor organs” of tho country have
been among the sufferers by the changes in
the labor field. At the beginning of last
year there were over 200 of them in the
United (States; at the present time their
number is loss than a hundred, and at least,
one-half of these are on the verge of extinc
By far the most striking sign of the
changes of the times in the labor field is qf
the political cast. In labor politics, all is
now confusion, at least in this Ktate of New
York. At this time a year ago, the “forces"
of labor were rallying tor political action

before, and the rreult in New York, Chicago.

joined hands until, if we add the voters of
last spring to those of last Novemlier, a
couple of hundred thousand of them
reached the l>allot box. The preparations
for this unprecedented display of cohesion
had been going on for several years and had
received a powerful Influence from th* gi
gantic stride* of labor organization in I"H.‘>
and 1886. The exultation of the new party
o'er the large vote that it polled was tin
bounded, and the prediction* of the en
thusiasts for the elections of this fall, and
•Whyte national campaign of noit year.
were also unbounded. The politicians of j
the old parties were alarmed, the trim- |
mers began to cast their eves to- j
ward tho “anxious seat,’’ but since i
the beginning of the year the changes
in labor politics, especially in
the State of New York, lave been rapid,
distracting and ominous. There is war in
the camp, a war of factions as bitter as ever
was waged. We have three labor [larties
in this State. We have two sets of candi
with other sets yet to be heard from.
The Union I,abor party, the George land
party and the Socialist party are now at
each other's throats. The enraged belliger
ents are indulging in mutual defiance and in
denunciation that goes as far a- “pirates,”
“(Tanks,” “boodlers ” and soon. The George
party, qt its Si mouse convention, shut its
doors against the union laborers, east out
the Socialist laborers, and tolerated only
such united latx rers as sworn by the theory
of land taxation. Ail these three parties,
which had but lately marched in
one procession, along with many other
elements, are in hostile army, as
though they had never “drunk out of
the same canteen.” And so the whole situ
ation, as regards labor polities, has changed
from what it was last, fall. The Wrangling
has extended from district to district in tho
city; it has broken out in the labor organi
zations; it has extended to the Cent ral I,h
bor Union, in which the new )>arty had its
birth a short year ago; it has plaved havoc
with the unity in labor politics which looked
so formidable last fall; it must inevitably
split the labor vote m a way which prevents
any predictions based upon the result of
last November’s elections; it will surely
drive back with the old camp thousands of
voters who broke loose a year ago, but who
are disgusted with the present uproar; and
it is, in every way, a bad business for “labor
IKilitics.” It is complicated, too, with in
tolerant personal rivalries, with the “re
ligious firebrand’,’of ex-Father McGlynn,
with the frenzied exhibitions of the anti-
Poverty Society, and with schemes which
bear a mercenary stamp upon their face.
The three factions are, without doubt, irre
concilable as long as they stand upon their
antagonistic platforms which cannot, by
any possibility', be harmonized, and are not
easily changed. The George party cannot
give up their single-tax theory, which the
Union labor party cannot accept,; the So
cialist labor party, driven to the wall by
both the others, hoists its own colors to the
t une of no surrender. And thus it is that
labor politics stand in New York to-day, in
view of the election which will fake place
two months hence, and which will influence
the Presidential campaign of 1888.
TRADING WITH OLD PARTIES.
The worst feature of the whole case is
that charges of “trading” with the old party
leaders, and of a bargain and sale, are flung
against each other by the three factions.
Facts came to light in the early part of this
year, in evidence of the accusation that cer
tain “managers” of Mr. George's last cam
paign, who are yet in the business of man
agement, trafficked for votes with both Re
publican and Democratic candidates, and it
is certain that their opportunities now are
far greater than they were then. The Union
Labor party is infested with blacklegs of the
same breecC as every roan acquainted with
our local politics knows; and of the
three factions, the Socialists alone, who are
mainly Germans, are free from the stigma
of trading or dickering. The fact is that
disappointed mercenaries of the old party
are always on the lookout for such prey as
is offered in third parties, and especially in
the Labor party, and more especially after
such experiences as those of last November,
when the Labor party became an object of
interest to all politicians. The greatest
danger for labor politics is that of being
wrecked by such mercenaries.
This brief survey of the labor field, as
seen from New York, in the light of this
year’s strikes, and the decline in the princi
pal labor organizations and the wrangling
of leaders,' and the splits in labor politics
contain several lessons of warning to those
concerned. John Swtnton.
Their Duties,Bkill and Compensation—
The Prevention of Crime.
In a force of 14,000 or 15,000 men, says a
London letter to the Philadelphia Press,
there are naturally a good many-scamps.
Some accept bribes no doubt, from women
of the town, others drink from publicans,
and yet others cold meat and kisses from
pretty cooks: but as a rule the London
policemen seem to me—and I have walked
the streets of tho metropolis for nearly four
months—a very creditable lot of fellow's
who try to fill a difficult position with as
little frietion as possible. The idea pervad
ing the metropolitan jioliee force, and it is a
good one, is that it is better to prevent
crime than to run up the columns of arrests.
Over-offieiousness on the part of the police
is not tolerated. The police in London dare
not use the club and knock people about
with the fredom prevailing in some of the
large American cities.
In the last ten years 80,600 persons, de
scribed as prostitutes, were apprehended in
London. This shows how extensively the
police deal with this class, and it is perhaps
surprising that more mLtake* are not made.
Then conies the army of drunkards, 25,000
strong, and some years 35,000. They have
to lie run into the station house at night and
run out the next morning by their friends.
Curiously enough, there are in London
about as many licensed houses for the sale
of intoxicating drinks as there are police
men, namely, 14,230. It does not always fol
low that the arrest* for drunkenness are
highest where public house* are most numer
ous. The division of Whitechapel heads
the gloomy list, and boasts nearly
2500 annual arrests for drunkenness, and
that of Holborn follows. Yet Holborn has
1177 licenses and Whitechapel 705. On the
other hand, the aristocratic division of Ken
sington has no less than 1252 licenses and
less than 1500 arrests. It may be that Bill
Sykes of Whitechapel is more noisy in his
cups than Lord Bnitfenrake of Kensington,
or it may be that Bill is “run in" at a stage
when “tiiy lord” is helped home. This may
bo the explanation. The fact, however,
remains that with nearly double the number
of licenses Kensington has 1000 less arrests
for drunkenness per annum than White
And now a word about the pay of the
London police force. The actual pay of the
liolico comes to a little over 65,1X10,000 a
year. There are five chief constables, with
salaries commencing at $3,000 and rising
$125 a year to $4,000. There are twenty
eight superintendents with salaries and al
lowances varying from #1,550 to #2,375 a
year; then come 1130 inspector*, whose pay
varies from #440 to $1,755. There is only
one at the highest rate, but twenty-eight
have over #I,OOO a year each, arid 582
have between SSOO and #I.OOO a year.
The sergeant* number 1,102, eight, of
whom have mere than *750 a year: 212 have
more than #SOO, and all the rest from $445
to #405 a year. Of the 11 plain constables,
the highest pay received by 00 of them is
#417, and the lowest given to 3,010 is (313.
There are allowances for coal; the inspect
ors, sergeant* Hnd constable* are supplied
with clothing, and the police employed on
special duty receive allowance* varying
from 50c. to #5 a week, the greater portion
of which i* paid by those who employ t hem.
There are a’so 20 inspectors, 103 sergeant*
and 1,000 constables attached to the reserve
force who receive a weekly allowance of #l,
75c. and 35c. respectively. Thus, on any
emergency, an additional 1,200 men can lie
called intOA the field. The total cost of the
metropolitan police for last year was
