HOW ORGANIZED LAIIOlt VOTKD.
In another column we have 6hown that
the threat of the wool growers of Ohio
and California that ' thousands of votes
would be lost to the democrats on account
of its tariff views was an Idle one, for the
republican majority in each of these states
was reduced, and we propose now to show
that the proposal to reduce the tariff had
no effect in frightening the Intelligent or
ganized laborers of the country. In no city
in the Union is organized labor more intel
ligent nor better versed in the economic
questions of the day than in Indianapolis,
the home of General Harrison. Here the
questions pertaining to the tariff have been
discussed with great assiduity among labor
people. And here, notwithstanding the
democratic vote which Mr. Harrison re
ceived on the ground of state pride,yet the
majority which Blaine received in Harri
son's county, Marion, four years ago was
entirely wiped out this vear,and Mr. Cleve
land carried the county by nearly 400 ma
jority. This same increase in the demo
cratic vote in industrial centers is shown by
the election returns all over the country.
Philadelphia is a very bee-hive of indus
trial avocations. Labor here, as in Indi
anapolis, is intelligent,organized and well
grounded in the economic questions that
affect the interests of labor. But what
proves to be a puzzle to republican leaders
and manufacturers, these people voted
largely for Mr. Cleveland and tariff reform,
so much so that Blaine's majority in that
city of 30,000 four years ago was reduced
this year to 18,000. In New Jersey manu
facturing is almost the exclusive occupation
of the people.and the great body of the peo
ple are wage earners. These people, like
wise, are organized into labor unions in
whose meetings all political questions af
fecting their wellfare are intelligently dis
cussed. Here Cleveland's 4,400 majority
of four years ago was raised to 8,000 this
year. In all the manufacturing towns of
Massachusetts where the great body of the
voters are labor people this same increase
in the democratic vote is seen. In Lowell,
one of the great cotton manufacturing
towns of that state, Blaine's 1075 majority
of four years ago is reduced to 408 for Har
rison this year. In Lawrence.another cot
ton manufacturing town, Blaine's 241 ma
jority is wiped out and Cleveland given 226
majorltr. la Fall River Blaine's 960 ma
jority is reduced to 49 for Harrison. In
Holyoke Blaine's majority four years ago
was 50. This year Cleveland has 651 ma
jority. Worcester is an Iron manufactur
ing town. Four years ago Blaine had 3429
majority. This year Harrison has 1997.
North Brookfield , where boots and shoes
are manufactured extensively, gave Blaine
84 majority; and now gives., Harrison 21
majority. In Marlboro Blaine had 155 ma
jority, and ft now giyes Cleveland J40 ma
jority. Woburn gave Cleveland 205 ma
jority in 1884 and this year it gives him 269
majority. And thus we might continue
to name town after town where labor peo
ple constitute the great body of the people
where the democrats ha7e made gains.thus
showing that generally in all communities
where labor is organized, these democrats
fared well, while among unorganized labor
people they fared badly. The inference to
be drawn from a'.l this is, that where labor
organizations exist in which," for several
years past, the economic and wage prob
lems have been thoroughly and intelligent
ly discussed and well understood, there the
democratic vote has been increased, while
among unorganized laborers among whom
the same special effort to understand the
tariff and labor questions has not been
made, there democrats have lost. While
farmers, as a rule, would be most largely
benefitted by a reduction of the tariff, they
seem slowest to comprehend how they are
burdened ith unnecessary taxation for the
benefit of others, and hence have not re
sponded to the call for revenue reform as
they will before another presidential con
test shall come on. Farmers are prover
bially conservative and slow to move.
This grows out of the Isolated character of
their vocations. They.are not thrown to
gether as labor people are, and hence have
not the same opportunities to study the
effects of the tariff upon their interests as
do labor people.

A dispatch from Indianapolis says:
"A movement is on foot among promi
nent Democratic ex-soluiers in this State
to withdraw from the Grand Armv of the
Republic, and form an association com
posed entirely of Democrats, the cause be
ing the political character of the Grand
Army during the last campaign."
Leading dunocratic ex-soldiers of Indi
ana, and members of the G. A. R. are
openly charging that the organization w as
openly used as a political engine In that
state at tlie late election to promote the
election of the republican ticket. The
same charges are made in Illinois and else
where. The charge in Illinois comes from
no less a person than General John M,
Palmer late democratic candidate for gov
ernor and as brave and patriotic a soldier
as ever shouldered a musket or buckled on
a sword, After carefully watching the
course ot the organization In that sta'.e he
has deliberately resigned his members hip
on account of the partisan character of Us
work in the late campaign.
