Yet it may well be doubted whether nuch

The "Journal of United Labor" Says It la
tho lExplrtn. Gasp of Anarchy.
(trXCIAL TO THE XVXKIXO WOBLD.)
Philadelphia, Oct. 28. Commenting on
tho manifesto issued by the Provisional Com.
mittee of the Enlghts of Labor from Chicago,
tho Journal of United Labor says to-day in a
saroastio vein i " It is unnecessary at this time
to dlgDify the mattor further than to state
that it is the last expiring gasp of
the Anarchlstio element whioh sought
to disrupt the General Assembly.
Thirty.flve representatives are stated to havo
been present at the meeting at which this
manifesto was adopted. The test vote in the
General Assembly on carrying the rod flag of
Anarchy in processions of Ihe Knights of
Labor was 112 to 29. It seems, therefore,
that the twenty-nine sympathizers with An
archy who voted for the red flag in the Gen
eral Assembly were able to rapture six more
for the purpose of carrying out, after the
General Assembly adjourned", what they were
powerless to accomplish while it was In ses
sion. . " If this movemont will only be persisted
in to the extent of taking from the order
every vestige of Anarony, and every person
who sympathizes with Anarchy, it will be the
greatest boon that ever couio to tho organiza
on." This editorial is understood to emanato
from tho pen of John W. Hayes, the Secre
tary of the General Exeoutive Board. Phil
adelphia delegates who were supposed to be
included in the thirty-five were shown tho
editorial and expressed their disapproval of it.
Edward Moore, Master Workman of Distriot
Assembly 1, voiced their sentiments thus:
" Calling pcoplo hard names is no argument,
and to cry 'Anarchists I' at pcoplo does not
niako them Anarchists. Ami, besides, I
think that people who handled nearly half a
million dollars of the order's money in a year
and woro unable to present an itemized ao
count of it aro not in o position to call any
body else names."

(SrXCIAL TO THE XTXKIXO WOBLD.l
MEirpnus, Oct. 28. Nowsof the destruction
by fire of tho stern-wheel steamer Alberta
No. 8 was received in tho city to-day. The
accident ocourrod at 11 o'clock yesterday
morning, near Indian Bay, Ark., on Whito
Itiver, seventy-four miles from tlo mouth
and 2S2 miles, by tho river, from this port.
The steamer was on her way from Newport
to Memphis, and hod on board 672 bales of
cotton nnd many tons of cotton-seed, all of
which were consigned to tho merchants and
oil mills in this city.
The fire, tho origin of which is unknown,
was discovered on the lower deck among the
cotton bales. The alarm was sounded. Tho
crew responded promptly and j soon had sev
eral streams playing on the flames. But it
was useless. The fire had already gained a
good headway and evermoment the flro
grew in intensity, and though the officers
had fought hard they were finally forced to
abandon the steamer.
All reached shore safely save Capt. William
Gibbs. the chief clerk, who was caught in
the cabin, while striving to save the Dooks
and was unable to escape. Capt. Gibbs was
about sixty years of age and bad been a
steamboat man nearly all his life. He was
well known on the upper White and Black
llivers, where he had many friends.

this morning it was tho principal topio of
conversation in the street.
As Mr. Gould has given no official infor
mation as to his intentions to the public, it
was natural that all sorts of guesses and
queries should be hazarded as to the real
significance of-' tho great stock operator's
latest move, and a few wore dis.
posed to believe that he had
some ulterior object to accomplish by
his trip abroad than to obtain recreation ana
benefit his health. The general sentiment,
however, seemed to be that Mr. Gould, feel
ing that he needed rest from his almost con
tinuous labors of tho past few years, had de
termined to take the vacation whioh ho has
ofton said that he needed.
To a reporter of Tna Evzntno World
Commodore A. E. Bateman, one of the most
prominent operators in tho Street, and
known as an opponent of Mr. Gould in tho
market, said this morning :
" The announcement was not a snrpriso to
tho street. I for ono have known that
Gould has been gotting his house in order for
some time past, two years at least, in order to
got away. Ho has transferred the control
of tho large corporations in which
he is interested to his son or his
friends, and now has a finely organized
crowd. His intention has been to arrange
his affairs in such a manner so that ho could
enjor tho great fortune which he has accumu
lated for the r ualnder of his life."
"Do you think he is going out of the
market altogether ?"
" I think that is tho general opinion of the
street. Ho would take a supervisory inter
est in his properties, and he can do that in
Europe as well as he can here, possessing all
the cable facilities necessary, but as for spec
ulating, I believo be is out of it."
" Then you donotboliovo bis trip has any
special significance, eithor financial or other
" Not the slightest: and as for his going to
see Blaino, I cannot see what he could ac
complish by that in a political way. It may
bo laid down as pretty certain that his nb
senco will not have a great influence on the
market one way or the other."
In the opinion of Henry Clews Mr. Gould's
absence will be a benefit to speculative inter
ests, for he believes that as the former does
not intend to engage in any important deals
while abroad, his absenco will be
tho elimination of a very dangerous
element of disturbance from the local market,
and that the course of speculation during the
next few months will in consequence favor
operators on the bull side of tbe market.
Another well-known authority on Wall
street matters, asserted that Mr. Gould was
going abroad principally for his health, he
thought he was going to try
and list his Western Union on
tho London Stock Exohange, but
this view was strongly combated by another,
who said that Mr. Gould would be tho lost
man to personally undertake a matter of this
kind, for II any representations were to
bo mado about his telegraphio proper
ties he would prefer to havo it done by others
than himself. It was suggested that per
haps he might be intending to make
soma political combination with the
Maine statesman who is now wandering
on the Continent, but this was pooh,
poohed as improbable as when Mr. Gould had
any dealings with the politicians they were
the ones who usually ran after him.
President Charles G. Wilson, of
the Petroleum and Stock Exchange,
and Georgo It. Gibson, a prominent
dealer, both thought that Mr. Gould
would retain his interest in tho market suf
ficient to kocp an oye on his specialties, but
that his movements abroad were a matter of
indifference to the public.
As the representative of a prominent firm
said this morning, tho real reason of Mr.
Gould's departure is to secure rest. Ever
since the Woerishoffer and Smith warfare
ngainst him he has been in hot water,
and tho tremendous pressure both of
debt and responsibility which has been
upon him in the interval, of which the pub
lio has known but little, has shattered bis
nervous system, and ho is actually afraid of
tuontal prostration. Soveral recent attacks
hate frightened him, and actually havo
hastened on his departure, which he has boen
contemplating for two years.
It is said that somo of the younger brokors
in the "stroot" are jubilant over Mr,
Gould's departure, which they regard as a
godsend to tho markot that they have
chartered three German bands of full-test
wiud-powcr to be present at the wharf. North
Kiver, of the TJrubria to-morrow afternoon at
the hour of sailing to give the great financier
an appropriate ana cheerful scud-off.
Great rejoicings are also in progress over
the reports of rougr. weather ahead for the
Uuibrito and if statements are authentic Mr.
Gould Is also in receipt of a choice and as
sorted variet) of remedies for his prospective
attacks of mat tie ner.

TLLEGRAPn RATES TO GO UP.
Wostera Union and It Rlmls to Stop So
Called Competition for Awhile.
Telegraphio rate competition is at an end.
The United Lines and postal companies havo
agroed to conform practically to the rates of
the Western Union. The agreement was
reached yesterday at a conference between
Jay Gould, Manager Brown, of the Mutual
Union, and President A. B. Chandler, of tho
To an Evening World reporter President
Chandler said to-day i "It is true that ar
rangements were concluded yesterday, de
signed to put an end to the wasteful competi
tion that has hitherto existed between the
telegraph interests. It provides for equal
rates up to twenty-five cents and somewhat
lower rates by competing companies between
.distant points.whcrotho rates aro higher than
" There bas been no sale or lease or merg
ing of properties in any form. Nor is there,
so far as I know, any Intention or desire on
tbe part of the owners jt managers of either
of the properties looking in that direction.
The Postal and United Lines companies are
nbbolutely Independent. Tbey have never
approved of tho excessively low rates forced
upon them by the fiorce competition between
the Baltimore and Ohio and the Western
era Union. They now expect
to receive their full share of
Bnblio patronage at rates which will enable
lem to maintain and operate their property
by pursuing a just and considerate course
towards all their patrons. The new rates
take effect Nov. 1.
"The advance does away with the adop
tion of ruinous rates only. It does not do
away with general telegraph competition."
