Hundred that waited on them to protect appointed committee on
against the introduction of Coolie cheap Delegates. Reports from the yarlou£
labor in. the Cutlery at BeayerFalls. The
following reply, in the form of resoin
lions, was unanimously passed, and ex*
presses the sense of the meeting:i?.
, 'BEBblimoSS. ■■ *
Resolved, That the answer from the' Harmony
Society, at. Economy, to onr delegation of one
banditti and ten persons, who visited them a few
days since, is not what we hoped forand expected.
Instates that they favor Chinese laborlflthe cut
lery works on the ground of necessity ,and also
because each labor baa become more frequent in
other part* of the countjry., v . . .
That they have been uhabletd find the directors
ol the Cutlery Company 3 have viplateduy law or
any right of any party, and'that if there he such a
case the courtsare open to declde upon lt.
Oar reply to this portion of their answer Is that
a direct commencement haa been madehyjlhe cut
lery company to overthrow oar prosentsystem of
labor, to drive the workingmen, like the boor In
dians, westward before an advancing Asiatic army
of inferior workmen, andere long, if continued, to
make the poor poor and the rich richer.
It is the beginning of a calamity before which
all the woes we have ! e ver known will bear no com-
i We are at present not prepared to say that any
law now standing on the statute oook-has been in
this case violated, as we do notknow all the par
ticulars regarding the contract made hy threat
lery company for the Chinese.
There is a law, however, graven on the hearts’
of Christian men. which no human power can
ever repeal, guaranteeing that the Christian do
main shall never be usurped by the heathen.
We would like that some peaceful mode would
be devised by which every Chinaman In the land,
brought here under contracts for a term of ten
years, could bo sent borne. Such an accomplish
ment would relieve the public mind and'ln due
lime pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow.
Onr cause is not confined to the limits of Beaver
county. It covers the whole Union. It further
states, that the Harmony Society would be willing
for the Cutlery Company to dispense with Chinese
labor if convinced that it was wrong, butfear to do
so because, as they think, another evil would nec
! Our reply to this portion of said answer, is, that
we consider it wrong to employ Chinese labor be
cause* It debases white labor; cheap labor means
debased labor. And we consider it the true in
terest. both of the capitalist and the nation, to
elevate the workingmen—not to degrade him.
It farther states that because they have been ac
cused ofseeking for lucre only in supporting the
operations of the cutlery company, they propose
to give their share of the earnings pf the estab
lishment tor the next eight years, if so long
owners thereto, for the support of mission schools,
the poor, etc., keeping Beaver FaUsparticalarly in
Onr reply to this part of said answer Is that the
proposition wears upon its face a desire to do good,
and we have no doubt of ’the pure intentions of the
Harmony Society in making the offer; bnt, aias;
each earnings, if earned at all, wohlii be at so ter
rible a cost—the lowering of the white operative,
that we cannot think any religious body would ac
cept the proffered gift.
It further states that If there be any white em
ployees who worked in the cutlery, who have been
wrongfully discharged and thereby sneered loss,
that such caees may be properly and legally made
to appear before a court oPlaatlce.acd that they
(the Hambny Society J wm mate compensation tu
case the Cutlery Company is unable to do so.
Our reply to this part of said answer is, that
many are prepared to make affidavits that they
were discharged by a gradual reduction ot-wagee.
The destruction of the poor is their poverty,
and the process of discharging white men from the
cutlery has been.by reducing wages so Tow that
they could not thereby support their families.
It farther states that if tt can be shown to them
that any rights have been violated in the employ
ment of Chinese, by proper and legal authority,
they will insist on their immediate removal.
Should, however,any violent measures be resort
ed to, iirviolatlon of the rights of the company,
that tjiey will withdraw all their means from the
Our reply to this part of said answer is that we,
have already stated the process by which dis
charges were mane. -
As for the supposition that violent measures
might be resorted to, we reply that our intention
has ever been to show our opposition to coolie la
bor in a proper and legal manner, to discountenance
Although the answei given ns by the Harmony
Society is not what we expected, we still hope
they will reconsider it and after dne consideration
roach the conclusion we have reached, that it is
not to degrade labor.
Resolved , That the Harmony Society's answer to
the citizens of this place is so far from what any
good people could expect and so unsatisfactory in
its terms, we as citizens and workmen protest
against the answer, from first to last, as being in
direct oposition to labor in all its various branches,
and rninons not only to this place bat to the whole !
country generally, and that while we deprecate i
any act of violence, we pledge ourselves that we
will never cease to agitate the question while
there is a coolie in Beaver conxty or in the whole
country, and we. as workmen and freemen, know I
our rights, and knowing, dare maintain. , 1
The resolutions were unanimously adopted.
Dr. Garrett offered resolutions providing for the j
formation of a league not to buy from any mer- 1
chant that patronizes and encourages Chinese la
hor; and ior a mass convention.
Dr. Qanett again addressed the assemblage, tak
ing strong grounds against the Chinese labor.
These and other resolutions, including.one pro
posing an act to levy a tax on all who
traband labor, were adopted, after which the meet--
ing adjourned, to meet again at the call of the

and more vigorous measures, until the end ;lav«S»]

Retolved , That, although as Good Temp lan., we
are willing to accept Local Option as an admission
that the people on questions of morahly, have a
right to express themselves by the mode required
by our form of Government, viz :- the)ballot box.
Still, even should the same prevail through such
channels, they will never accept the same as a
finality , but shall and do Insist upon uncohdltfonar
prohibition, and that said prohibition shall be - en
. grafted Into the organic structure of the State.
Resolved , That we recommend all Good Tem
plars to exert their Individual efforts to secure a
; large .vote on Local ~<&Uon, on nextlPriday two
weeks. And that the Order resolve themselves
into a committee of the whole, and individually
attend the polls, and assist in engineering the
election, so as to secure a full vote on Local . Op
tion, and that we would recommend the Lodges
to appoint committees to be out to each township
in the county* to present tickets against License
to all who wish to vote the same.

support to temperance literature, especially the

Anna Dickinson,— Anna Dickinson
whs greeted, oo Thursday night of last
week by the largest and roost intelligent
audience that has assembled in Beaver
ibis season. The lecturer made a favora
ble impression by her self-reliant and.
earnest manner, and bandied her subject
without gloves. She prefaced her lecture
by referring to the great Change that bad
been wrought within the recollection of
bar hearera'm regard to woman’s
and sanrThat the draramr-iH trow nradc
that women should receive equal pay for
like work with mep, ‘‘

and wi| leading
and veij 'imperfectly' at that.
By the ppfaioii tbere is
now a large demand fox working women,
the door is open to.all .useful work, and
what obstacle prevents Women from en
tering into the enjoyment and remunera
tion of such labor ? There is'none except
herself. In preparation for her work. In
faithfulness, in devotion, in persistent
effortio excel, in ambition to socceed, she
is inferior to man. If she will choose her
work as a life work, pursue, it steadily,
understand it thoroughly, it would be re
warded for-w-hat it iaworth, either more
or less than men get for the same- If
women do not get as high wages as men,
it is because they do riot do as good
work as men. -When they devotees much
time to preparation, and make their work
their trade or life business, they will re
ceive equal compensation, bur until they
do, they will not deserve it
Although there are about.Boo,ooo bouse
servants in this country, yet it is a very
difficult task to find a good one, and. when
found, harder to keep. American girls
will not go out to bouse keeping; because
such work is looked upon as degrading.
How many women there are who would
pay high wages for a skillful and thorough
ly competent housekeeper. What an
opening for remunerative and congenial
employment is the kitchen, and the girl
who would choose such work as her
calling, would not complain, if she ex
celled, for want of seif support; A hotel
keeper paid bis cook $5,000 a year. Be
is a mao. Women working ..a t the same
business get fbor to five dollars per week.
Why ? Because one wore a coat,. the
other a gown ? No, but because the man
made cooking his study, bis life work land
pursued it as an art, while women, ac
cepted-! t from necessity; as sn expedient.
The'man cook high wages be
cause be earns.tbem, women in tbe same
employment receive low wages because
they earn no more, and sometimes not
half what they get. Again, W needle
work there is the same inequality, and
there comes up from 200,000 poor sewing!
giflk’a pitiful wail, remipdingoue : of tbe
‘ Song of the Shirt/’ but thefact is, these
get poor pay because they do wretched,
There are forewomen in large estab
lishments who get as high as f 6,000 a
year, because they have been carefully
trained for their positions, and can earn
what they receive. There are thousands’
of places waiting for wromeq of like im j
portance, if they were ready and c oupe- j
