ST. LOUIS, '1.4
'a KEY WEST,
The Typographical Union and the.Asso.
The N. Y. Tu nes of Monday has an arti
cle on the position assumed by the Nation
al Typographical Union, which demands
that all newspapers be unconditicinally
admitted to the Press Association. The
Times says: The Associated Press is a
voluntary aisociatton of several journals,
for the purpose of obtaining news by
telegraph, for common use and at
the common expense, the object
being to avoid duplicating, at an enor
mous expense, news which all must have.
The Association never assumed to ex
clude any responsible vapeet from sharing
its advantages; but in view of the im
mense labor and expense incurred in
building , it up, it has been thought just
and proper to demand a price for such a
privilege, corresponding to its value and
its cost to the members of the Associa
tion. No journal strong enough to go
alone objects to the demand. It is only
those , who desire ! to reap the
prollt - of publishing a newspaper without
incurring the expense of it by' that ob-
ject. The Typographical Union objects
to thus increasing the priceof publisning
because it keeps printers
out of work. This 'is quite in iteeping
with the general policy of the Union, to
secure for -- printers as much
money _ for as jittle work as
possible; but the hostility of a com
bination, which assumes to fix the prices
for which printers may work, and to
regulate their hours, and degrade and
brand all who will not obey their dicta
tion, and which seeks legislative interfer
ence to sustain their abburl assumption
of the monopoly and tyranny of the As
is simply ridiculous.
They might just as well demand
every person who desires to start
a now newspaper man shall have the
right to use the correspondence,
the editorial force,' the law, mar
ket and general reports,
ally whatever In an od establish
journal he might find useful in his enteedr
prise. This would greatly facilitate the
starting of fresh-newspapers and so In
creaiae• the demand for printers, and
would be quite as just as the Union's de
mand concerning the . Associated Press.

all the seats on tho.tloor being occupied.
At the opening of the 'MUTT, the gal
leries and lobbies were crowded with
spectator's, and in the streets in the vicin
ity of the House of Parliament a great
throng otpeople was collected.
In the House many.petitions were pre
sented against the bill. Earl Granville
then moved the bill pass to its second
reading. He declared he had always
thought the Irish Church was au 'smear
alye and faded to fulfil the position for
which it was intended; that it was a great
injustice' and should be legislated on in
a reareinable,lwise and moderate way.
He traced the history of the suspensory
bill of last year, and the resignation of
• theD'lsraell Ministry showed their ac
ceptence of the decision of the country in
favor of disestablish went and disendow
went. After explaining the provisioue
of thei hUI under consideration, Lord
Granville continued: Ihe Government
did not desire to sever the spiritual con
nection between the Irish and English
Churches. He would leave the explana
tion of the endowments to his colleagues.
He declared there wall nothing in the act
of union to prevent the passage of
the bill. He did not undervalue
the act, but maintained that
it was not unalterable, nor should
it be allowed to stand in the way of a
measure deemed necessary to the major
ity of the , people 'and constituencies in
Ireland: . The bill had no effect on the
Royal supremacy. After referring to
the threatened opposition and comment
ing on the bigotry of past times, he ate
Pealedle the bench and to the Bishops
to . weigh well their course. Noth
log was more suicidal than to • point
to the principle on which the Irish
Church stands as that on which the Eng'
limb Church is to stand, for this step was
not the preclude to disestablishment.
The dignity of the House, atter due pro
test, should allow the bill endorsed by
the voice of the country to pass. The
House of Peers has. great power for.
good; but there is one thing it does not
possess. It has no more power than
the e of mmons. It has
not power s
to thwa rt the national will.
It was said that -the method of conduct
ing thebill in the Commons was offers,
stye, and the House of Lords had been
advised to be conciliatory in their pres
ent declaration. He well knew the value
of conciliation, but there was no need for
it here. For he would assure th
that though the Liberal party a d here d d

this he could not say.

'was a badge of corkquest, and declared
his conviction that the voluntary system
