cautiously conducted, might act perhaps as indices of the normal
rate of wages and the normal condition of labour throughout the
various trades ; if they are compelled to lower wages or to curtail
a privilege, the workman knows that it must be, and the whole
trade accordingly submits to the reduction or curtailment. While
pointing out the difficulties that beset the path of co-operative
manufactories, we extend to them the truest help. We heartily
wish them success, hoping that wisdom will be gained, if not
wealth, from the industry, self-control, and mutual forbearance
needed to conduct them; at the same time trusting that they may
reap the full reward of that energy which springs from freedom,
and participate in that progress which waits on self-reliance ; trusting
still more strongly that such associated workshops may become
the sanctuaries of honest work, upright fellowship, and manly
independence, which by infusing individual sympathy into united
action may create around them an atmosphere of Christian love.
