When Mr. Hume was shown the fore
going dispatch this morning, he read it
carefully, and said. "This is the first
Information I have heard of such a

further regarding it, as being too absurd
for serious consideration.
Ills attention was then called to the
paragraph In the Fredericksburg Star,
which reflected on him somewhat, ami
he said "Reflect on me! Why, you
might as well try to have a lea-cant
mirror reflect ou the sua. I have a
better character where I am better
known, and that is more than thaw who
are attempting to vllilfy ine cau say."
""Will you be an Independent eaadl

THE 1'OltCK llIU, HANDLED WITHOUT
ni-ovEs nv thu mabtku woukman.
Philadelphia, Pa , July 3'. Gon
cral Master Workman T. V. Powdorly
this afternoon Issued an address to the
Knights of Labor regardloir the Federal
Election law. He criticises the hill
harshly, and after giving n statement
of Its provisions says: "Shorn of
verbiage, the intent of that law 19 to
perpetuate the existence of the party In
power and cnablo It to keep n cloae
watch over the election of all ottlcers as
well as Congressmen. Why should a
special law be enacted to regulate the
election of Congressmen? Whom do
they represent that they shonld Insist
on manipulating the election machinery
In thtlr own interests? A Congressman
docs not represent thu United States In
the House of Representatives he rep
resents a number of citizens compilting
a certain territory in a certain State, and
the people of that State should have
the right to scrutinize and regulate tbe
election of tbe man or men who will
reurescnt them in Congrww."
The clause which nullities all State
election laws i also severely criticised,
and the assertion made that it increases
Intimidation. Mr. Powderly pleads for
the adoption of the Australian law, and
also measures guarding against illiterate
voters. Iu conclusion he says: "The
Inst thing is for the people to send in
their protests to the Senate against its
passage by that body. Our members
shculd act at once and ask the Senators
from thevailous States to voice their
sentiments oa this mensute when it
comes up for consideration. The name
of every Congressman who voted for
that law ihotilu be published to the
wotjd, and citizens who are opposed to
such high handed work should scratch
them on next election day."

nnd tlio I'ollco Ilnvo It Int.
About the 1st of June there arrived
In Washington from Salt Lake City a
man named Robert T. Hullh. win
claimed to have a motor with which he
proposed to revolutionize the world,
lie had sliown his little Invention in a
number of men in Salt Lake City, and
they had advanced him 100 with which
to pay expenses and permit him to ob
tain a patent.
He bad been In Washington several
weeks, and as the men who had ad
vanced tbe money did not heir from
him they came to tho conclusion that
they had been victimized.
Bomo time ago Mr. Hugh Turner of
Salt Lake City started out on a visit to
his old home at Augusta, Me., and It
was sugnested to him to stop over In
Washington and see what had become
of Hullls and the $400. Hultis was
found and he made tbe plea that he
had been sick and unable to attend to
business. He succeeded In Kettlnsr Mr.

ing his patent.
Last week Hullls gave out that his
great Invention had been perfected, and
that, tlmiugh his attorney, Mr. Stalner
ot New York, tbe motor had been sold
to two railroad companies for $1,900,
000. One of these companies, he said,
waa tbe New York Central ami the
other the 1 to ton ami Albany. In order
to get to New York, however, tbe. great
Inventor had to make another pull oa
Mr. Turner's purse string and the latter
let hint have IW more.
Davs iiaesed bv and as no renort
came from Hullis lit New Y'ork, Turner
followed him to tbe metropolis. Here
he found that there was no such attor
ney as had been named by HullU.
Neither had be negotiated a sala with
anv railway companies.
Turner could not find the man who
had done blm up, so he returned to
Washington ami reported the circum
stances to Inspector Swindles, who de
tailed Detective Carter oa tbe ease.
From tbe Information that the latter
gained he came to tbe eoncluloa that
llullis would come back to Washing
ton. Last eight be jumped from the plat

able. All the captains received posi

Captain Wlnant, lu view of tho

of perfect security. He Is certain that
