EEFOKTS OF THE OFFICERS OF THE
KNIGHTS OF LABOR.
3Ir. Powderly Inclined to Believe
That There Are Too 3Iany Labor
Organizations in Existence.
The Eegulation of Immigration Advocated
Matter of Self-Dafensa 1 ho
"Work of tbe Pas: Year.
The President of the National Grange Be
lieves That Parm Labor and Factory
Labor Should be Treated Alike by
Congress The Democrats De
feated by the Populists at -the
Convention of the
ST. Louis, Nov. 16. The general assem
bly of the Knights of Labor reconvened
Ibis morning. Grand Master Workman
Powderly delivered his annual address.
Among: other things, he said:
"As I review the p ist history of the
labor movement I am inclined to the belier
that there has been a great waste of vital
force and means. It is a fact that theie
are too many labor organizations str till
ing for supremacy. The tendency of the
labor movement seems to bo to divide up,
while that of the opposing force capital
is to consolidate, and thereby to gain
strength to combat the forces of industry,
when single-handed they aro arrayed be
fore them. Theio exists no reason why
every branch of toil should not ho enrolled
nder the head of this order. There is "no
reason why every interest cannot be mora
carelully guarded in this order than in
separate and isolated camps, where we too
often find them more bitterly opposed to
each other than to the concentrated forces
by which all of us are opposed. The
ono crying need of tho honr is an
organization in which every interest may
be cured fot; in which all may meet on
common ground; in which unity of thought
may be effected; in which a thorough
knowledge of what important step labor
intends taking may be imported to all
others. No one man or no man'slnterest
should stand in the way of this reform.
"Your general master workman has uo
hesitation in saying that he favors tho
total exclusion of all immigrants who are
not self-sustaining on landing in this coun
try. He would fix a term of years ten
would be long enough duriug which
time no immigrant should be permitted to
land with a view to remaining unless he
could provo that he had sufficient means
to sustain himself and those depending on
him for one year. I foresee 'great danger,
not alono to labor but to tho whole coun
try, if the immigration question is not
carefully and heroically handled in the
pear future. It may sound exceedingly
well to say that we have room for all the
world; that it would be un-American, and
lh.it it would be uncharitable to debar
others from the benefits we enjoy. There
is less danger of debarring them from
these benefits than there is that they will
take the enjoyment of these benefits from
all of us."
The report of the general executive board
states that though it would have been
Cheaper to have settled the alleged claim
of William Whitty of Amsterdam. X. Y.,
for goods furnished strikers in 1SS0, yet all
but conclusive evidence showed that the
ca'-e was only part of a conspiracy by
which the enemies of the order hemed to
accomplish its ruin. Had it been settled
in any other way it would have been but
the beginning of a series of iniquitous
claims the order would have been called
upon to defend. The boycott had been
steadily and effectively prosecuted, and
millions of dollars of trade had been di
verted frcm the combine.
The beard then reviewed in detail the ensa
biought against National Slater Work
man James Hughes of lloehester, N. Y.
There is in indirect charge in a paracraph
referring totbo case that tho jury which
convicted Hughes was "packed." Then
follows this: "It behooves this order to

The story of the troubles between the
Knights of Lubor and the world's fair

with the efforts made by the kniguts to
settle the difficulty. It was stated that all
the local assemblies were, by a cneular

upon their members in congress that no
money should be appropriated for the ex

The report of General Secretary and
Treasurer Hayes begins by a statement
of the conditiou nl the benefit insurance

to lack of support by the members., lias
not been vcrj successful. He urges the
delegates to adopt measnres to arouse the
interest of tho membership in this part of

statement shows that, including the bal

though all decided iu the order's -favor,
have entailed heavy costs. The report
shows that the membership of the order
has increased sligntlv dnnng the past

The afternoon session was devoted to
the report of the committee on laws. A
proposition was adopted providing for thr
establishment of an einploj'ment bureau
by the order. The suggestion that there
be stricken out of the platform the plank
providing for a graduated income-tax was
rejected, "and the plank was made all the'
stronger by the adoption of an amend

THE FARMERS' ALLIANCE.
MEMPHIS, Tenn., Nov. 16. The National
Farmers' Alliance and Industrial uuion
was in executive session all day today. It
was learned that most of the day was con
sumed in a squabble between the Demo
cratic and populist members of the organi
zation. The populists are seeking to oust
J. F. Tillman of this state, a member of
the national executive committee. The
executive committer duriug the campaign
sent out official circulars advocating the
election of General Weaver. Hrj Tillman
sent out counter circulars advocating the
election of Grover Cleveland. Mr. Till
man was also manager of tho national
literary bureau, and the populists charge
him With a breach of faith in 'managing
the affairs of the bureau. For this the
populists want Tillman's scalp, and in the
endeavor to get it out-voted th Democrats
on a proposition to elect a new executive
committee. This throws out C. W.
Macune also, and the members claim that
it is a clear victory for the populist wiug
and insures the election of Mr. Loucks,
the present acting president.
This morning the convention held im
pressive memorial services in honor of the
memory of the late L. L. Polk.
COXCOKD, N. H., Nov. 10. The national
grange of the Patrons of Husbandry as
sembled in annual session today. Master
Brigham of Ohio, in his annual address,
said that 'the financial standing of the
grange was good, and that the grange was
increasing in numerical strength, activity
and-goocl works. He advocated renewed
efforts to secuie the early passage of the

THE FRENCH LAWMAKERS.
PARIS, Nov. 16. The government's bill
providing for the imposition of severe pen
alties upon Anarchistic newspapers that
incite to violence, and generally adding to
the stringency of the press laws, was in
troduced in the chamber of deputies today.
The opposition raised the question of con
fidence on tho bill, and an exciting debute
followed; but the chamber adjourned
without taking a vote on tho measure.
M. Lnguerre, the well known Boulan
gist member, opened the debate, arguing
against the bill. The government, ho de
clared, ought to prosecute Anarchists, not
journalists. This remark evoked ap
plause from the lie ft.
M. Lassere, the reporter of the bill,
argued to show that liberty was not to be
confounded with license.
Couut Albert de Muh, an extreme Cath
olic, said that the lamentable state of af
fairs which had caused the introduction of
the bill was due to anti-religious educa
tion. M. Loubet, the prime minister, prdtested
against that assertion. The laws of the
lepublic, Iro declared, were founded upon
the principle of religious neutrality.
Count de Nouville-Maillefeue, a member
of the Loft, opposed the bili. Alluding to
Count de Mun's royalistic opinions, lie
caused a sceno by exclaiming, "The mon
archy is a mere tissue of falsehoods."
Many members of the Hight sprang to
their feet, loudly protesting against snch
an assertion, while others laughed noisily.
M. FJoquet, president of tho chamber,
called the count to order, and the latter
left the tribuue in indignation.
M. Dijschanel supported tiie bill.
Several other speeches wore made by less

THE CATHOLIC ARCHBISHOPS.
New York, Nov. 1C Iu the marble
palace of Archbishop Corrigan on Madison
avenue there is progressing a conference
i which may have results of a far-reaching
character. The Catholic archbishops are
conferring upon subjects of graves import
ance, not aloue to their own followers, but
to the people at large. It goes without
saying that the conclave is hedged about
with privacy and thrft the avenue of
public .information are few. Cardinal
Gibbons is said to be presiding, and the
occasion gains unusual interest from the
pre.-puce of Archbishop Satolli, the pope's
deleeate to this country. Archbishop
Ireland of St. Paul is present, and it is
thoucht that be will meet ati inquiries
from any source relative to bis views on
the Americnn school question. The
educational question, it is believed, is
being thoroughly considered by the

the wishes of the German Catholics of

in view the Knights of Pythias, the
United "Workmen, and other bocieties

piofited by the liberality of the church,
while, in consequence of this liberality,

Committees have been j
appointed to represent the archbishops of
the United Stales and laymen in any con
tention that may arise m the disposition
of the question of secret societies and
their re'ation to the church.
The work of the conference may be ex
tended into tomorrow, though it was ex
pected that its deliberations would tie fin
ished today. Archbishop Corrigau is not
ing ns secretary to the conference. The
pope's decree has practically settled tbe
school question as to the Faribault plan,
aud consequently the conference will not
TV.iste any time on that aspect of the
case. One of the main topic to be consid
ered w ill be the relations of church and
state in the appointment of teachers in
the parOcLlal schools as incident 10 the
general topic of the enlargement of the
number and scope of such institutions.
The practice of removing all sacred pic
lures and emblems from the school rooms
under a compromise plan of education
will be another probable difficulty, to be
removed by ome general rule.

OPEKA, Kau., Nov, 16. It can be ac
cepted that the Deinocr,atic state central
committee will make a fight to place
Colonel Thomas Moonlight in charge of
the pension office here. The Topeka pen
sion agency is the lamest iu the country.
The salary is fi.OOO. Colonel Moonlight
when asked if he would accept the office
replied that he would, if Governor Glick,
who held it uuder Mr. Cleveland, did not
waut 'it. Governor Glick is an aspirant to
the office of secretary of agriculture, and
Colonel Moonlight was informed that he
could have Governor Glick's indorsement.
It is rumored here that the Missouri Dem
orats will seek to have the pension office
moved to Kansas City and a Misounan
given charge. It is not likely, however,
that tho endeavor will succeed.
