Knights of Labor Desponding

10 September 1887
ZK 07044

The Canadian Knights of Labor feel misunderstood, says their Canadian Labor Reformer in September 1887. They complain about misapprehension and lethargy in their own ranks. Their device is: "If all our fellow countrymen were but honest and understood the fundamental principles of Labor Reform, all might be prosperous and happy." And there is a lamentation about their fellow workers as well: "The woodworkers in and about Oshawa are sorely in need of an organization, but nothing short of an earthquake will wake them up."
