struggled, und are still struggling, to
cum their broad by tho sweat ot their
brow, which we are tungut to call la-
supplying tho comforts and necessities
of man, deserves the highest praise.

dostiny of man, in that bo masters tho

Is there any roal conflict belweon
thorn ? We hour from all sides that
capital Invested in industrial pursuits
docs not bring to its owners a suffi
cient recompenso. Many of our iron
furnaces aro idle; our foundrios, and
our machine shops and planing mills
are standing still; our coal operators
complain that thoy can make no prof
ile.; the laboring men whn work in
thcoo several branches of industry oora-
nlain that they tire insufficiently paid
both sides are tolling tho truth
neither capital or labor aro recoiving
tho returns they did during what we
call "flush limes." Whatshnll wo do ?
If labor demands more of capital, and
capital grants it, then capital will suf
fer. If capital demands that theprico
of labor shall bo loss, then labor will
sutler. If labor demands ao much of
capital that it cannot stand it, thon
capital will shut itself op and reiuso to
omploy labor then what? Capital
cannot bo compelled to employ labor,
and labor can havo nothing to do with
out capital. Thus we see that ono is
dependent upon the other, and both
must hvejtnd thrive together, or ooth
must BufTor. It is said by some that
capital oppresses labor, aud that labor
must bo protected by law.
Others soy that labor oppresses cap
ital and demands of it more than it can
pny. That boti. allegations aro somo
liiues true, I havo no doubt Capital
ists invest their money in industrial
pursuits oxpectingjto make a profit on
their investment. They do not invest
it in business simply for the sake of
giving employment to labor they ex
pect a return in the shape of profit in
their investment for their labor and
the risk of their capital whoso capi
tal is his muscles and training in his
art, expects a profit and a return lor
it its value depending upon ite boing

Btandine. tho more skilled labor com-

capitalist often tiiltos advantago of tho
laborer is doubtless true that the la

their employes is equally true. It is

bave lagged behind in this race. Some
have far outstripped their follows. Wo
still find them struggling along all the
way from the starting point to tbo ond
of tho journey. Some are clothed in
rags, others in purplo and Hue linen.
Some live, as it were, upon husks, oth
ers upon milk and honey, homo ton
from tbo rising of tho sun until the
going down thereof, and gain but
poor subsistence ; others toil not, and
vet live in luxury, with all the good
things ot tho world at tneir commanu.
1 lus order ot things is so csiauusnou,
agreed to by them, that they would
start a store and agruo to lurnish them
goods at tho 8MH0 prlcos charged by
other merchants for tho same kind
and quality of goods. They would
only require their employes to take
orders ou tbeir storo tor the merchan
dise they needed, and that all their
savings would be paid in money. Tbeir
storo businoss bos keen very buocobsIuI,
thoy having a largo and growing cus
tom outside of tbeir employes. They
also say that some ot their employes,
who for twonty years under tho cash
system accumulated nothing, now hare
growing balances to their credit. I
havo heard no complaints noin any oi
those men, but 1 bare heard complaints
by outside parties by other merchants
who have, of course, lost the custom
of thoso men, and a lew laboring men
who havo received thuso orders soo
ond hand ; I have not heard complaints
from any of the employes of any of the
other iron manutaclurerB. I presented a
petition sovoral wocks ago, sigood by
about sixty citiicns ot two townships
romote from these iron Works, whore
tho principal industry is lumboring,
who complain of tho order system as
practiced in their neighborhood, and
pray for tllo passage ol a ktw, goneral
in its terms, apphcablo to al, panics. I
havo also heard complaints from a few
of the employees in Bome ot our coal
mines, who say they are cott.pelled to
take ordors on the company stores
where thoy are compelled to pay more
for goods than thoy can buy ttiora for
at other stores. I bave no doubt but
that Bomool'iheso complaints aro found
ed upon facts, and if legislation vonld
reach these cases, without doing an in
jury to both capital and labor in ouior
localities, where thero is no compia.nt
or abuso, 1 would gladly suppot It.
This law would reach the innocent as
well as the guilty. But this legisla
tion, as proposed in tho bill as it roads
without any amondment, is special in
its churaetor, being only applicable to
three branches ot industry, leaving an
others untouched, and, as I believe,
contrary to the spirit of tho Constitu
tion. Section seven, article three, of the
Constitution, provides that tho (joneral
Assembly Bhull not pass any local or
special law changing
tho rules of evidence in any judicial, pro
ceeding, or inquiring before any couit
aldermen, jujticcs ol the poaoo,
or regulating labor, trado,
mining or manufacturing." This pro
nosed law may not bo local in its char
acter as it applies to throe branebos of
industry in all tho oountios oi me

for any retail merchant doing business
in this Commonwealth to roccivo any

Mr. Voorhoos called attention to
what be foarcd was not generally re
alised, namely, that rodoral interior,
enco extended not only to Congres
sinnal. but to all Stato and local cloc
lions. Tho Amoncan cilisons, ny inns
having overseers put over tbom, were
reduced to the condition of slaves.
The protection of the ballot box had
boon wrested from pronor local officers
and givon to corrupt Federal offlcors.
The spirit thot dictated this law was
tho distrust ol tho peopio ana taoir ca
pacity for self govorninent under free
elections. The wbolo powor of tho
Constitution was thus perverted.
Tho people would resent this Insult
ing tyranny whon tho facts should be
clearly presented to thorn and the
righteous sense 01 resistance wouiu
spring up in their broast. He hoped
tho peopio would read this law until it
should boctuno an abborence to tho
public mind. There was no American
who was not liablo to arrest for no
othor reason than tbat existing in tbe
mind of a Supervisor or Deputy Mar
shal, thus placing ovory porson 'e liber
ty at tho motcy 01 party maiieo or
hate Every rntfian acting in such ca
pacity was to dotcrmlne a man's rights
at the polls. The Constitution plainly
guardod a citison in an ins personm
right but that instrument was violated
by the arrest and imprisonment of cit
izens on iiisufllciont warrant by ma
licious snies and Informers. II tbo
Constitution sanctioned such practices,
it would be proof that thoso who tram
ed it were not interested in free gov
crnmnnt, and that the futbere who
achioved our independence fad failed
nf thoir irreat purposes. Tho spirit
that produced this law was like that
which preceded the French revolution
and caused the fires of tho revolution
to broak forth, and which mado every
citiiun tremble with the toar of a blow
in the dark. It emanated from tho
spirit that ruled In Venice, where the
look of suspicion was more to bo dread
ed than tho blow ot a dogger, and
doomed tho victim to walk the Bridge
of Sighs to prison and a wretched
death. Charles I. lost his throne, and
Goorgo III. his rulo in America lor
less evils than thoso inflicted by some
of our Federal aws. All history show

In nr,l. tn ahnw abuses committed
on suffrage he referred to the city of
Now York, whcieacts nau ueen w.m
mittfld which brought shams and dis
,,raoa tn the whole- country. John
Davenport was ohief Supervisor, the
autocrat of the ballot box. lie, with
bis cohorts, Intimidated votora from
going lo tho polls, and thousands re
mained away rather than place them-
tion. The Deputy Marshale and Su
pervisors were Federal Ku-Klux, or
ganirod to intimidate freemen and
cheat thorn of thoir rights. What hap
pened in Now York might occur elso
whero. No man wouloTBay that such
a statute should longer continue in
Mr. Yoorhoos implored the Ameri
can people not to forget tbat their lib
erties are trampled undor loot with
Bcorn and contempt
Ho then proceeded to another branch
of law on the subject ot popular elec
tions. Tho President in oortain casos
boing authorized to omploy the land
and naval forcos al the polls. Under
tho vague pretext of kocping tbe
poaco, by the President is Commander-in-Chief
of the army and navy,
could give such orders as would tond
to crush the liberties of tho country
after tho manner ot Ciusar, Napoleon
the Great and Napoleon the Loss.
Like them, tho President oould send
out his emissaries to stir up trouble in
tho South and thus a pretext found for
tho employment ol the army in that
soction. Tho l'residont was the judge
ot tho numbers of troops ho would em
ploy, and under tho present laws he
might order ships to Now York and
New Orleans !i election days to over
awe the pooplo simply under the pre
tence of keeping poace at tho polls.
!Hr. Yoorhoos noxt alluded to the
Civil Bights bill of 18(i9, under which
he said the President could use the
army anywhere undor pretence of on
forcing its provisions, thero being
placed under the power of tho Presi
dent rango of subjects as extonsive
as tho rights of man under a free Con
stitution. The vast scope of this law
placed absolute powor in the hands of
ono man. There was not a phase of
human affairs in the States and lern
tories that could not be interfered with
by tho army. Mr. VoorhoeB read other
laws to show to what base uses mili
tary force might be applied in controll
ing elections. The veriest reptile of
the nartv. a United btates Commis
sioner, could call upon tho military and
naval lorce to snppori una in did proceedings.
. ...... . i.
llr. V oorhoeB said tho .-senator irora
Maine fltlainei saw no reason for
alarm in the provision which tbe pond
ing bill dcoigneu to repeal, dui ne
would relor him to what Daniel Wob
dter uttered. It was "If mon would
oniov the blessings of Republican Gov.
ernment. thoy must govern by reason
and mutual concession and with duo
regard to the gonoral intercut, and an
acquiescence of the minority, and that
tho military must bo kept according to
right and strict subjection to civil au
thority. Whcrevcrthose principles do
not exist thorecan be no political free
dom." Mr. Voorhcos said that it was
a soliro on tree government to say
that suffrago should bo oxurciscd at
tho point ef the bayonot. '
lie next alluded to the employment
ot tho judiciary in connection with
elections, and condemned it as poison
ing injustice at its source. In recapit
ulating his arguments, Mr. Voorhees
said the laws to which be had referred
formed a complete system to withdraw
all power from the people and States
and to central it in tno executive uo
partraont for revolutionary .movement
acrainst tne constitution, tuu jo.
ultimato monarchy. In the oarlior
dnyB of tho Republic, there was a par
ty in favor of a monarchy. The party
is larger now, aua mere were s u,
force by which the scheme could be
put into actual operation. Would any
one hero sav that the laws to which
ho had alluded were required lest our
liberties should be destroyed? Wero
measures enacted fourteen years to be
uphold tor the government ot southern
States? If so, then indocd had tho
North paid a dearer price than tho
preservation of the Union demanded,
because for tho Iosb of liberty there
was no reparation. Ino conquest 01
tho South at the expense ol the courts
and free elections was a dear prioe. lie
denied that tbo South disregarded law.
On tbe contrary, thoy submitted to
ovory legal requirement Tho people
of that soction had under advorflocir.
cumstanoes vindicated themselves as a
law-abiding people. Ibey bad been
slandered by sectional spirit Uo bad
