Boston, Oct. 26. Democrats in Boston
and in fact all over the Stato, aro greatly en

publication of General Ames's war rooord in
Sunday's Olobt has aroused intense excito

CoNconn, N. II., Oct. 20. Perhaps tho most
disturbed man in tho Stato to-day is William
E. Ghaudlor. At tho tlmo of his election to
tho United States Sonata tho rival candidates
wero not of a dangerous sort, as matters then
stood. Mr. Chandler's torm expires in 1889
and ho is exceedingly ambitious to succeed
himself. In tho railroad fight ho has claimed
to bo neutral. Whatever editorials he has
written for I is paper, tho Concord Monitor,
have been of Utopian character, with no
particular reforenco to the railroad contest.
By his veto of tho Hazon bill Gov. Sawyer
has come to bo prominently mentioned, to.
ether with othors, for the United States
cunte in 1880, aud Mr. Chandler has sunk
into insigniticauce in connection therewith,
and his disquietude is very mnrked. It is r.
well-known fact that Mr. Chandler's election
was only secured by tho most strenuous ex
ertions of his friends political, and that, had
thoro been an available candidate of any con.
siderable strength, the ex-Sorretary of tho
Navy could not nave been olocted.
It is currently reported that Mr. Chandler
owes his election to Frank Jones, who ro
fused to support him, in accordance with a
mutual agrtomcut made before tho session
of tho Legislature opt ued. The position he
has taken in tho raihoad fight has estranged
the greater part of his influential friends, and
it is very doubtful if ho is roturned to the

A tall and thick-bodied but nlmble-footed man
was capering around In front of an active youth In
John Wood's gymnasium this morning. Doth had
big gloves on their fists and were whacking at
each other's heads. They were Prof. McClellan

was fastened with a Jet pin and on
the end of tho pin was what looked
like a f alry-llkc film of Bllver, hammered and en

saw the quaint portrait felt much heart-burning

smiled and aaldi "I wonder how that flve-cent

the other females heaved sighs ot deep relief and
gave up envying.

KNIGHTS STANDING FIRM. I
THEY ARE UNWILLING TO COUNTENANCB
A SPLIT IN THE ORDER.
Borne of Thrm, However, While Supporting
the Po derly Administration, Hympathlzo
With the Condrinnrd Annrcblata District
Master Workmen to Addrraa an Anarchist
Meeting In Union Hqtiaro Saturday.
Tho reported split in tho order of the
Knights of Labor, and tho circular of tho so,
called "Provisional Committee," cnllin.
upon the malcontents or opponents of the
present administration of tho Knights to re
organize tho order, is tho all-absorbing topio
of conversation in tho organized trades and
labor unions and tho assomblics of tho
Knights of Labor.
The frlonds of General Mastor Workman
Powdorly do not consider tho opposition aa
' of suflloient calibro to break up the order,
and cliaractorizo the efforts of his opponents,
os of a chronio naturo and unworthy sorioua
thought. A fow tako a consorvutivo view,
and whilo they nro not satisfied with tho
courso of tho General Master Work
man nnd of the General Assembly in
some matters, thoy aro pleaBed with it on tho
wholo nnd think that tho policy pursuod and
that outlined by Mr. Powdcrly and his
8t longest supporters at tho late convention '
will redound to tho ultimate good of Cho
Order and tend to increase its mcmborshlp.
Still there are leaders who are opposed to
tho General Mastor Workman, and thoy havo
a large following ; bnt thoy do not bolieve in
going outside of the Order to obtain reforms,
and will endeavor by all tho means in their
power to bring about a chango in tho admin. !
istration. Soino of theso leaders aro
opposed to tho action of tho Gen.
oral Assembly in refusing to entertain
tho resolution presented by Mastor Workman
Quiun, of Dibtrict Assembly No. 49, asking
tho Governor of Illinois for mercy in the.
caso of tho condemned Anarchists. These
same men, however, are opposed to any at.
tempt to create u division in the order, and
openly declaro that this is tho last year of
Mr. Powderly and the present General Ex,
ecutive Board, and that a radical change will
take place when tho noxt General Assembly
The most zealous supporters oi jur. row.
derly, on tho other hand, assert that he in the.
only man in the order at tho present tlmo
who is capable of adinimster.ng its affairs in
a capable aud sensible manner and who com
mands tho respect of the publio at large.
The qucstiou t ppermost in the minds oi
the Knights is tho action with refer,
once to tho condemned Anarchists,
and this iB said to be tho cause of the
present excitement aud tho opponents of Mr.
Powderly are said to havo taken advantage
of it to create a division nnd form a new
organization. ThcBo opponents ore in a hope,
less minority, as shown in the proceedings oi
of the General Asbembly, whoro some of tin
leaders who formerly opposed Mr. Powdorly
became his warmest friends and supporters,
and aro willing to acknowledge that, aftel
all, ho is tho bebt man for the head of affaire
in the order.
Interviews hod with prominent Knights
show the Bentiment which prevails among
tho District Assemblies in this city:
John J. Bealin, one of the most active
members of District Assembly No. 49, which
is tho largest Assembly in the order, having s
membership of 50,000, said : " I do not think
that there will bo auy serious withdrawal!
from the ordor. Tho legislation of the late
General Assembly will result in the ultimate
pood of tho ordor, nnd will tend to increase
its membership largely within the next year."
James P. Archibald, of tho Poper-Hangere'
Local Assembly, and Paul Mayer, of the
United Clothing-Cuttcrs, expressed confl.
denco in General Mastor Workman Pow.
derly and said that the order was on a bettei
footing than ovor and would largely increasf
John McMackin and John Jones, of the
Progressive Painters, united in the expres.
sion of confidence in Mr. Powderly's honesty
and fairness aud said thoy did not bolieve a
split would ever occur in the order.
Thomas J. Ford, of tho United Brass
workers, a body of 5,000 men undor the juris,
diction of No. 49, said: "The action of tb
General Assembly will increase the member,
ship. As a whole the legislation meets my
approval, especially that part of it which en.
courages the formation of trades districts. 1
have not paid any attention to the circular oi
the Provisional Committee of Chicago. I be.
lievo that the disposition is to harmonize, and
all concornod will oontually come to an un.
dorstanding that will result in tho general
Timothy Putnam, n prominont figure In
No. 49, said: "The men who aro most in
sympathy with tho Anarchists aro tho most
desirous of remaining in tho order. The pro.
grcssivo men of to-day have no such field as
they have in tho Knights of Labor. All ol
tho kickors are not Anarchists ; for instance '
Georgo Murray, of No. 04, the Printers' Dis,
trict Assembly. Buchanan may think thai
he is an Anarchist, but ha isn't. John Mor
rison, of No. 126, and Buchanan art
the only real kickers in tho order and I be,
lievo that they are at tho bottom of the pros,
ent movement, Morrison and his follower!
aro really not in the order. No. 49 is the only
district assembly that instructed its delegate!
to do all in their power to socure a now trial
for the condomued Anarchists. If it were
tho Anarchists who desire to get out of tht
ordor, how do you account for tho large
mass-meeting which is to be held in Union
Square on Saturday evening ?"
Mr. Putnam then read the names of tht
following District Mastor Workmen who art
to address he meoting, and whom he said art
in sympathy with the movement in behalf oi
the condemnod men : James E. Qainn, oi
No. 49 j A. A. Hanley, No. 197, of New Jer.

Messrs. T. B. Mitguire, Bailey, Barry, Colo,
ton aud Aylesworth, of tho General Execu,
tive Board of tho ordor, have been invited
and some of them will be on hand. Messrs,
Victor Drury and Hugh Greenan, of No. 49,
will also deliver addresses.
Mr. J. D. Dulca, of No. 91, favored Mr,
Powderly's administration, but was also in
sympathy with the movement for aiding tht
condemned men to obtain a new trial. He it
opposed to any division in the order or tht
attempt to form any new organization.
