The town of Stewarton stands on Stewart Clan at Stewarton, whose chief was crowned King; and if we mistake not, its name should be the Royal or Stuart bonnet, and should have a Stuart tartan rim, and be worn as an indispensable part of the Clan Stewart garb. Its unity with the kilt would harmonize completely with the unity of Lowlander and Highlander under the Stuarts. In the fifteenth century Stewarton was the private property of the Stewart kings. Their castle here, as well as the old Church of St. Mary connected with it, is now extinct. The Kilmarnock bonnet, doubtless that of the Clan Boyde, was very broad. With antiquarian research, it might be possible to reproduce most of the old clan bonnets. They would make an interesting exhibition – a stimulus to trade.
David Dale, philanthropist, and founder of the political system called Socialism, was born at Stewarton, January 6, 1739. He was bred to handloom weaving, at which he worked till he was 32 years of age, when he went into Glasgow, commenced business there, and made a large fortune in 20 years. He formed a benevolent scheme for the improvement of the condition of the working classes; and, to carry it into effect, in the year 1784 feued the site for a village and extensive cotton mills on the Clyde, about a mile from Lanark. In April, 1785, he began building the first mill; and in 1793, when four mills and the village of New Lanark had been built, the number of people employed was 1334, which afterwards increased to 4000. Mr. Dales system was to give to his workers the whole value of their labour, by dividing the profits amongst them periodically. They were engaged for a term of years, during which they were supplied only with a sufficiency of the necessaries of life – as food, clothing, houses, schooling &. – and at its termination received in a lump sum the accumulated surplus profits. An anecdote is told by Lord Kinloch which illustrates in some measure the terms of familiar equality that subsisted between Mr. Dale and his workers.
His Lordship says:-” My father had been in the counting-house of the well-known David Dale, the founder of the Lanark Mills, and eminent for his benevolence. Mr. Dale, who, it would appear, was a short, stout man, had a person in his employment named Matthew. One winter day Mr. Dale came into the counting-house, and complained that he had fallen on the ice. Matthew, who saw that his master was not much hurt, grinned a sarcastic smile. I fell all my length said Mr. Dale. Nae great length, sir, said Matthew. Indeed, Matthew, ye need not laugh, said Mr. Dale; I have hurt the sma of my back. I wunner whaur that is, said Matthew.” The new Lanark Mills were, during a lengthened period, under the management of Mr. Dales son-in-law, Robert Owen, a native of Wales. On the death of his father-in-law, Mr. Owen,** who was formerly one of the employees, became the owner of the mills, and extended still further Mr. Dales system of ” Liberty, Equality, Fraternity.” With the view of obtaining more favourable conditions for its nationalization or universalization, Owen sold the New Lanark Mills? and bought a large tract of land in America, where he formed a community which he called ” New Harmony.” This proving unsuccessful, he returned home, and established a community at Orbiston, Lanarkshire, and another at Tytherley, Hampshire, and also a Labour Exchange in London; but all were unsuccessful. He also wrote vigorously on the subject; but his judgment was overpowered by his enthusiasm, and, after departing from Mr. Dales well-established footing, he succeeded in nothing but expending the large fortune. Dale was elected a magistrate of Glasgow in 1800, and also preached there, to a congregation of his own forming. Died in Glasgow, 1806, aged 67.
