The Question of 'Recognition.
T WAS Josh Hillings who said It
never paid to "argy agln1 a con
clusion," There was a lime when
It would have been In oider to
"aigy uglir " locoKiiltlon of tho Illinois,'
union, but the time bus ptissed, Tin!
union Is now a conclusion for a time,
at least, If not for all time. No sensible
man In his heat I doubts thl". Those
wliw aie lighting against ircognlllnn
mo simply making n technical stand
for something without substance. Tho
union Is heie. Closing eyes to It will
not leniovt! it.
Air. Mitchell says that lecognltlon of
the union unit full use by the opetatois
of Its machine! y of discipline, which Is
open to Impioveinont, tlnougli contiact
agreements would not Inciease but
lessen the petty fi lotions concerning
which tlie opetators most bltteily com
plain. He also aigues that recognition
would put the union on its good be
havior and bilng Into piny the full
measme of Its initio to win and hold
public respect. These asseitlons aio
plausible and in lonfoinilty with wlut
we know of human uatuie.
Tin operatois bail their chance to
light the union and to beat 11 and they
lost. Success wus within their giasp
when they got cold feet and laid down.
They have none but themselves to blame
for this outcome and they must face its
consequences. The duiable existence ot
Hie union as a factor heteafter to be
reckoned with is foiemost among them
and since lighting the union has not
weakened or tlestioyed it, but on the
contrai y has only made expense ami
trouble for all concerned, the next thing
to consider seriously is whether it
would not bo possible and expedient to
co-operate with the most conscivatUo
Influences within the union towaul
biinglng out of tho union Its better
It Is tine that dining the past five
mouths especially, though with arylng
intensity for the pjst tin ee ytais, wo
have had all kinds of dmlltiy and mis
chief in the anthracite fields. It is
futile in John Mitchell to deny this, for
the evidence is overwhelming, tlut it
does not necessaiily follow that that
kind ol thing is a noiniaf or permanent
f colli to of tho union's activities. Tho
besL men in the union deploml it as
much as the men who wcie lighting tho
union and it remains for the best men
on both sides, reinforced by the full
power of the best Ameiican public
opinion, to co-opeiate to biing about a
cessation of those ouliages, the ex
tinguishment, of this incipient anarchy
and the restoration and advancement
ol civilization in the antluacito coal
Human institutions ate all evolu
tionary. Our splendid republic todav
bcais but flight resemblance to the
diminutive one ot Washington's time,
having grown and stiengthened as
needs arose and education developed.
Yet for even that small lepubllc of
Washington's time men wtio willing to
lay down their lives. Anil so it is with
the mlneis' union. It is only a guiin
compared with wliat, under wise lead
eihlp and the benefit of filundly public
lecognition and co-opeialion, It may be
come. Yet It has piovod abeady that
It holds tho loyalty of the ovci whelming

We say tills fiankly notwithstanding
the many ciiticlsnis which wo have
pilnted of excesses in the union move
ment atticisms which we will lepeut
so long as these excesses and abuse,
exist. We do not oppose unions, but
wc shall eternally oppose nnaichy, law
lessness and the foicible denial of fun
damental American lights, t temoins
for the unions to piove that they, too,
share In this opposition and aie willing
to govern theli conduct accordingly.
