is applicable to a goo J many subj eta
iu life. Says William: "We should all
of us avoid too close a criticism of
what we liuve grown weary of. I used
to be fond of the Little Neck olatn, but
once, n few years a'o, I was almost
snatched by the rude bund of death
from the great field of letters by the
brisket of a small clatn uo larger than
a Wist Shore dividend. Yet I do not
say that the clain is to all uien utterly
unwbolesom , poisonous and fatal." It
is a good policy to )iva and let live.

Candidate Sinokrly informs the
publio through the medium of bis ex
cellent journal, the Philadelphia Rec
ord, that he "has no desire to go back
on Elitor Singsrly, nor to pass himself
i ff on the roters of Pennsylvania for
other than he is." This is a manly
stand to take; and it almost induces us
to wish that Mr. Siniterlr mijrbt com

Wickes' Tactical Mistake.
The refusal of the vice president of
the Pullman Car company to submit
a stuteuieut of facts to a committee of
arbitration to consist of two members
Darned by the Pullman company, two
named by the circuit court judges of
Cook county and a . lif th to be chuson
by the previously selected fonr. may be
correct according to an unyielding in
terpretation of the lejial principles in
volved ; but it is in effect one of those
rigid actions that, juds-d by their imme
diate consequences upon the people,
comprise tactical tnistak 'S. If it te true,
us the Pullman officials claim, that the
wage demand of their former employes
meant nclnal lcs to the company and
wns therefore not to be conceded, it
would baveiatreugthened the company's
position to have had this fact clearly
established in the finding of an impar
tial tribunal. The indixnant refusal
which Vice President Wickes m lie to
this overture inlds uuuocessarily to the
passions of the hour, givt-s rise to the
suspicion that an investigation is fear
ed ; and gains nothing for tho company.
Understand, ws do not in tho slight
est in oiis nr.- question the perfect rilit
of th Pullman company to manage
its own business iu its own way,
so long as that mauageinent does not
constitute a public offons. But when
it does constitute a publio offense;
when by obstinacy or indiscretion it
incurs upon the innocent public losses
that the public. does not deserve to
bear, and when, particularly in a mo
ment of widespread passion au 1 excite
ment, the management of that private
business pursues a course of arrogant
superiority and indifference to the suf
fering public from which it derives its
commercial support, then we claim it
is lime for public sentiment to crystal
lize against such a management and to
show it, by orderly and peaceable
methods, that it Is occupying an errone
ous position, from which it should, in
deference to the public, at once recede.
The present general strike, that is to
say the labor movement bast known as
the Ddls movement, is utterly and
completely wrong. , It is false in prin
ciple and vicious ia practice. It as
sumes preposterous things and attempts
things still more impossible. There is
not a man on strike in this country to
day, apart from the 3,000 men directly
concerned in the original wags diipute
at Pullman,, who has any right to be in
the warlike position that Dobsisra has
placed him in. If he has a legal right,
which is doubtful, we yet claim that
be has no moral right thns to declare
war against publio prosperity whsn be
hue no cause of his own to fight about.
Bnt when this is said, we are perfectly
free to add that the wrong done by la-
Dor, under demagogical and unwise
leadership, cannot be offset, either in
theory or in fiiot, by another wrong
done, through the selfishness of the
Pullman company officials, in refusing
to budge un inch, although they knew
that millions of Americans, through
no fault of their own, would suffer in
consrqnence of that refusal.
ine man wno coasts that be never
gives way in deference to others, even
tnongn ne may idiok nimseir rigat, is
the incarnation of selfuhness and van
ity j ind is not a good citizen. There
is not an employer in this city who
does not have to make concessions oo
cssionally; and none, we trust, who is
unwilling to do this when by doing so
be can benefit othen without injuring
himself. We fear that the vice presi
dent or tbe Pullman company has
taken the wrong tack in this matter.
He declares that the company cannot
pay more wages, but refuses to make
public the proof. Tbe American peo

ists to warrant Mr. Debs or any of bis
associates to conspire and plot against
the conim Tee of the cjuntry, to try to
wreck its business prosperity, to fill its
streets with excited men, inauy of
whom eive veut to arson, pillage and
otber lawlessness: and to force upon
guiltless third parsons the heavy brunt
and burden of a colossal strike based
upon no real grievance.
If the statute law did not make it a

plot in this manner for the wanton
overthrow of oruor, the moral la w would
Fortunately for the statutes tbey are not
deficient la this particular. The indict
mailt yesterday returned against thvso
men by the Cook county grand jury is
a mild expression of tho general in
dictmeut pending against them in the
tribunal of clear-sighted publio opin
ion; and it is to be honed that it will
serve to bring their cases squarely he
fore tbe local courts in the tame rigid
manner that those cases will eventually
be brought before the bur of the Uni
ted States courts.
Tbe public is entitled to know where
it stands in this matter. If ic must.

be wrong for Pullman to refuse to do
business at a loas, but it is no loss

prosperity of the country in a quixotic
lfort to force Pullman to submit bis

The Politics of It.
'Tho failure of tbe Democratic
party has shown the worklngmsn that
it is not the party of tbe people, and
tbe Rrpullican party should show
them that it is." Such is the remark
credited by the Pittsburg Commercial
Gazette to a labor leader in that city
who is anxious to solve wage difflcul
ties along p irty lines. It voices a feel
ing that has many sharers, and is de
serving of consideration. But it is
first necessary to know what is meant
br ''the party of the people." What
people? Those who believe tbat im
provement can come through the
hallucinations of Populism? . Tbe Re

Does our Pittsburg friend mean, then,
the people who, when any of their
number are dissatisfied and strike, in
stantly desert their own workshop:
against which they have no grievance,
and, seizing guns and crowbars and
torches, rush in masses to the railroad
tracks where the freight of tbe nation

furniture Btands in loaded cars; and
there proceed to burn this freight, tear
up these bands of steel that are the lit

Insurrection? The Republican party
cannot, in justice to ltnelf.be the party
of these people; for, however much
they nviy be deceived an 1 vsxod nnd
angered, they are nevertheless law
breakers, whose defiance of the author
ity of tbe state una or tue nation is no
more to be tolerated than was the
armed resistance of the south in its ef
forts at secession. The Republican
party deplores the condition of things
which has culminated in bloodshed nod
riot; and would, if in power, do its best
to remedy those evils. But it canno
make any promises which would iinpty
a tolerance of lawlessness nor court
any alliances which would tend to
